The Law of One, Book IV, Session 77
Questioner: Thank you.
I would like to go back to the plan of this Logos for Its creation and examine the philosophical basis that is the foundation for what was created in this local creation and the philosophy of the plan for experience.
I am assuming that I am correct in stating that the foundation for this, as has been stated many times before, is the first distortion.
After that, what was the plan in the philosophical sense?
Ra: I am Ra. We cannot reply due to a needed portion of your query which has been omitted; that is, do we speak of this particular Logos?
Questioner: That is correct.
I am asking with respect to this particular sub- Logos, our sun.
Ra: I am Ra. This query has substance.
We shall begin by turning to an observation of a series of concept complexes of which you are familiar as the tarot.
The philosophy was to create a foundation,
first of mind,
then of body, and
then of spiritual complex.
Those concept complexes you call the tarot lie then in three groups of seven:
the mind cycle, one through seven;
the physical complex cycle, eight through fourteen;
the spiritual complex cycle, fifteen through twenty-one.
The last concept complex may best be termed The Choice.
Upon the foundation of the transformation of each complex, with free will guided by the root concepts offered in these cycles, the Logos offered this density the basic architecture of a building and the constructing and synthesizing of data culminating in The Choice.
Questioner: Then to condense your statement, I see it meaning that there are seven basic philosophical foundations for mental experience, seven for bodily, seven for spiritual, and that these produce the polarization that we experience sometime during the third-density cycle.
Am I correct?
Ra: I am Ra. You are correct in that you perceive the content of our prior statement with accuracy.
You are incorrect in that you have no mention of the, shall we say, location of all of these concept complexes; that is, they exist within the roots of the mind and it is from this resource that their guiding influence and leitmotifs1 may be traced.
You may further note that each foundation is itself not single but a complex of concepts.
Furthermore, there are relationships betwixt mind, body, and spirit of the same location in octave, for instance: one, eight, fifteen, and relationships within each octave which are helpful in the pursuit of The Choice by the mind/body/spirit complex.
The Logos under which these foundations stand is one of free will.
Thusly the foundations may be seen to have unique facets and relationships for each mind/body/spirit complex.
The Choice, is relatively fixed and single.
Lit: leading motive.
In music: A distinguishing theme or melodic phrase representing and recurring with a given character, situation, or emotion in an opera.
Questioner: Then I am probably having a problem with the concept of time since it appears that the Logos was aware of the polarization choice.
It seems that this choice for polarization at the end of third density is an important philosophical plan for the experience past third density.
Am I correct in assuming that this process is a process to create the proper or desired experience that will take place in the creation after third density is complete?
Ra: I am Ra. These philosophical foundations are those of third density.
Above this density there remains the recognition of the architecture of the Logos but without the veils which are so integral a part of the process of making the choice in third density.
Questioner: The specific question that I had was that it seems to me that the choice was planned to create intense polarization past third density so that experience would be intense past third density. Is this correct?
Ra: I am Ra. Given that our interpretation of your sound vibration complexes is appropriate, this is incorrect.
The intensity of fourth density
is that of the refining of the rough-hewn sculpture.
This is, indeed, in its own way, quite intense causing the mind/body/spirit complex to move ever inward and onward in its quest for fuller expression.
in third density
the statue is forged in the fire.
This is a type of intensity which is not the property of fourth, fifth, sixth, or seventh densities.
Questioner: What I am really attempting to understand, since all of these twenty-one philosophical bases result in the twenty-second which is The Choice, is
why this choice is so important,
why the Logos seems to put so much emphasis on this choice, and
what function this choice of polarity has, precisely, in the evolution or the experience of that which is created by the Logos?
Ra: I am Ra. The polarization or choosing of each mind/body/spirit is necessary for harvestability from third density.
The higher densities do their work due to the polarity gained in this choice.
Questioner: Would it be possible for this work of our density to be performed if all of the sub-Logoi chose the same polarity in any particular expression or evolution of a Logos?
Let us make the assumption that our sun created nothing but, through the first distortion, positive polarity.
There was no product except positive polarity.
Would work then be done in fourth density and higher as a function of only the positive polarization evolving from the original creation of our sub-Logos?
Ra: I am Ra. Elements of this query illustrate the reason I was unable to answer your previous question without knowledge of the Logos involved.
To turn to your question,
there were Logoi which chose to set the plan for the activation of mind/body/spirit complexes through each true color body without recourse to the prior application of free will.
It is, to our knowledge, only in an absence of free will that the conditions of which you speak obtain.
In such a procession of densities
you find an extraordinarily long, as you measure time, third-density; likewise, fourth density.
as the entities begin to see the Creator,
there is a very rapid, as you measure time, procession towards the eighth density.
This is due to the fact that one who knows not, cares not.
Let us illustrate by observing the relative harmony and unchanging quality of existence in one of your, as you call it, primitive tribes.
The entities have the concepts of lawful and taboo,
but the law is inexorable and all events occur as predestined.
There is no concept of right and wrong, good or bad.
It is a culture in monochrome.
In this context
you may see the one you call Lucifer as the true light-bringer in that the knowledge of good and evil both precipitated the mind/body/spirits of this Logos from the Edenic conditions of constant contentment and also provided the impetus to move, to work and to learn.
Those Logoi whose creations have been set up without free will have not, in the feeling of those Logoi, given the Creator the quality and variety of experience of Itself as have those Logoi which have incorporated free will as paramount.
Thusly you find those Logoi moving through the timeless states at what you would see as a later space/time to choose the free will character when elucidating the foundations of each Logos.
Questioner: I guess, under the first distortion, it was the free will of the Logos to choose to evolve without free will. Is this correct?
Ra: I am Ra. This is correct.
Questioner: Do the Logoi that choose this type of evolution choose both the service-to-self and the service-to-others path for different Logoi, or do they choose just one of the paths?
Ra: I am Ra. Those, what you would call, early Logoi which chose lack of free will foundations, to all extents with no exceptions, founded Logoi of the service-to-others path.
The, shall we say, saga of polarity, its consequences and limits, were unimagined until experienced.
Questioner: In other words you are saying that originally the Logoi that did not choose this free will path did not choose it simply because they had not conceived of it and that later Logoi, extending the first distortion farther down through their evolution, experienced it as an outcropping or growth from that extension of the first distortion.
Am I correct in saying that?
Ra: I am Ra. Yes.
Questioner: Then did this particular Logos that we experience plan for this polarity and know all about it prior to its plan?
I suspect that this is what happened.
Ra: I am Ra. This is quite correct.
Questioner: In that case, as a Logos, you would have an advantage of selecting the form of acceleration, you might say, of spiritual evolution by planning what we call the major archetypical philosophical foundations and planning these as a function of the polarity that would be gained in third density.
Is this correct?
Ra: I am Ra. This is exquisitely correct.
Questioner: In that case, it seems that a thorough knowledge of the precise nature of these philosophical foundations would be of primary importance to the study of evolution of mind, body, and spirit, and I would like to carefully go through each, starting with the mind.
Is this agreeable with Ra?
Ra: I am Ra. This is agreeable with two requests which must be made.
Firstly, that an attempt be made to state the student’s grasp of each archetype.
We may then comment.
We cannot teach/learn to the extent of learn/teaching.
Secondly, we request that it be constantly kept before the mind, as the candle before the eye, that each mind/body/spirit complex shall and should and, indeed, must perceive each archetype, if you use this convenient term, in its own way.
Therefore, you may see that precision is not the goal; rather the quality of general concept complex perception is the goal.
Questioner: Now, there are several general concepts that I would like to be sure that we have clear before going into this process and I will certainly adhere to the requests that you have just stated.
When our Logos designed this particular evolution of experience It decided to use a system of which we spoke allowing for polarization through total free will.
How is this different from the Logos that does not do this?
I see the Logos creating the possibility of increase in vibration through the densities.
How are the densities provided for and set by the Logos, if you can answer this?
Ra: I am Ra. This shall be the last full query of this working.
The psychic attack upon this instrument has, shall we say, left scars which must be tended, in our own opinion, in order to maintain the instrument.
Let us observe your second density.
Many come more rapidly to third density than others not because of an innate efficiency of catalysis but because of unusual opportunities for investment.
In just such a way those of fourth density may invest third, those of fifth density may invest fourth.
When fifth density has been obtained the process takes upon itself a momentum based upon the characteristics of wisdom when applied to circumstance.
The Logos Itself, then, in these instances provides investment opportunities, if you wish to use that term.
May we enquire if there are any brief queries at this space/time?
The Law of One, Book IV, Session 78
Questioner: The choice of polarity being unique as a circumstance, shall I say, for the archetypical basis for the evolution of consciousness in our particular experience indicates to me that we have arrived, through a long process of the Creator knowing Itself, at a position of present or maximum efficiency for the design of a process of experience.
That design for maximum efficiency is in the roots of consciousness and is the archetypical mind and is a product of everything that has gone before.
There are, unquestionably, relatively pure archetypical concepts for the seven concepts for mind, body, and spirit.
I feel that the language that we have for these is somewhat inadequate.
However, we shall continue to attempt to investigate the foundation for this and I am hoping that I have laid the foundation with some degree of accuracy in attempting to set a background for the development of the archetypes of our Logos.
Have I left out anything or made any errors, or could you make any comments on my attempt to lay the foundation for the construction that our Logos used for the archetypes?
Ra: I am Ra. Your queries are thoughtful.
Questioner: Are they accurate, or have I made mistakes?
Ra: I am Ra. There are no mistakes.
Questioner: Let me put it this way.
Have I made missteps in my analysis of what has led to the construction of the archetypes that we experience?
Ra: I am Ra. We may share with you the observation that judgment is no part of interaction between mind/body/spirit complexes.
We have attempted to answer each query as fully as your language and the extent of your previous information allow.
We may suggest that if, in perusing this present material, you have further queries, refining any concept, these queries may be asked and, again, we shall attempt adequate rejoinders.
Questioner: I understand your limitations in answering that. Thank you.
Could you tell me how, in the first density, wind and fire teach earth and water?
