Taurus’ Field

When my boy was learning to walk we spent many a summer afternoon at the park. I appreciated the softness of the grass cushioning fall after fall. I was happy to live in Vermont with such robust greenery. I got in the habit of kicking off my shoes. This is when I started to really wonder about the earth’s powers.

The bliss of baby-rearing comes with its share of hassle, as any parent knows. It would never cease to amaze me that my feet on the soft sunny grass would inspire an instinct to skip and frolic. I’m in my forties in this grass. And I can’t help but frolic a bit. The baby gives me a carte blanche to galavant without raising eyebrows. Geo laughs and falls and springs up again. The delight snowballs bigger and brighter.

Some days I would wait to take off my shoes. I would observe “nope, i don’t want to frolic” and then take my shoes off to instantly feel the opposite. I felt like a fly that was tired and lethargic until brought back into the natural air where it zipped off. There is magic in the earth. It can’t be any other way. But could the magic be in us, shared with the earth?

My feet would seem to be sprung from the earth, as if I transformed into an earth elf! It was so notable that my favorite times were when I was fettered and then instantly released into my natural elven state.

I had heard much about grounding, and how walking without shoes was beneficial to one’s health. I had heard this for years but it took a summer of feeling it for myself to be convinced.

I thought about Tesla’s insistence that the earth had plenty of free energy.

Sitting on the earth continues to educate me. Its potency is so humble. It is the most natural cue for me to bring my hands together, as if in prayer. For this seems to complete a circuit. The potency flows through me. Grounding me into feeling more free, more potent and more at peace.  It is the perfect prayer.  What potency or power could be more assuring to turn to when in need than this shared potency one has with nature?

Einstein said that if he believed in God then it was “Spinoza’s God”. Baruch Spinoza was a 17th century philosopher who saw god to be one and the same as the singular “substance” of nature. A place beyond form. The only place of oneness.

In the zodiac, the sign that represents nature is Taurus. It should come now as no surprise that it sits sturdily at the center of our torus (Taurus) field. Nature is robust.

Nature is a torus field. The substance of all which includes god.  It is a living, breathing organism of which we are all a part of.   A bite from Eden’s apple banished Adam and Eve from nature’s full embrace. In an act of free-will, they separated from the torus field, the toroidal apple, into a new existence. The fall was necessary to gain more freedom, but as with any fall there must also be a rise.  We are outside of nature because we can think ‘about’ nature.  ‘About’ by definition means ‘outside of’.  Humans are free thinkers with an adventurous road ahead.  

Our reflective species is built to rise. To know nature with full consciousness, and thus become nature, create nature.

To Everything Turn Turn Turn. Venus enters Taurus.

Venus will go into Taurus on Wednesday, April 14th.  Salvador Dali was born with Venus in Taurus (and was a Taurus himself).  He famously said, “I don’t do drugs.  I am drugs.”  Venus in Taurus loves a good embodiment.

Just like a Dali painting, Venus in Taurus has a far out side.  To the furthest reaches of the universe in fact.  

Last post we explored the ideas of inventor and cosmologist, Arthur M. Young and we will stick with him again in this post, namely his ideas about the torus.  

What makes the torus such an interesting shape? - Quora

Taurus is the 2nd sign of the zodiac, and the torus field is composed of two rotating circularities.  One rotation is edging around the donut, the other is through the middle and back up around the side. 

It is the rotation that is of importance with the torus, and only the rotation.  The rotation is what connects the inner most part of you (and any other creature) with the farthest reaches of the universe.  Are you beginning to sense a melting clock?

This is quite natural. As Young explains, in the “phase dimension” (theorized by Arthur Eddington) rotation is all that counts.  There is no time.  With this dimension Eddington discovered that the curvature of space-time is the same as the rotation that’s implicit in the photon.  The curve of space-time and the curve of uncertainty (that exists in each photon) appear to be the same thing. He did what seems to still be impossible today. He married quantum theory with relativity, merging the infinitesimally small with the grand expanse.

Young puts an extra spin to this when he said that the dimension of rotation is also the dimension of choice, a freedom always present in some capacity. He also discovered that the mathematical formula for the torus and the Einstein-Eddington hypersphere was the same.

Make it two. Eddington’s on his way.

Taurus then, is the shape of everything, a dimension of pure rotation, connecting us as separate and willful individuals to the farthest reaches of space by design.  By our use of choice, we embody this dimension.

Dali said “I dont do drugs.  I am drugs.”  In the toroidal universe, you don’t make choices you are choice. You are free-will (what Young equates with uncertainty).  It is uncertainty, or free-will that underlies all existence.  The photon and free-will are one and the same, rotating in sync with the great sweeps of space-time.  

Have you ever felt a certain good choice to strengthen you on a real bodily level?  How about the opposite?  Have you ever been so out of touch with your own power of choice that you felt somewhat outside of yourself?

With this transit it is time to get back in sync with the curve!  Trust in your body’s feedback when it comes to choices.  It’s, shall we say, well-connected. 😉

Venus will rotate in Taurus until May 8th when she will jump into Gemini!

Happy choosing, and as always happy astro pondering!
