The Copernican revolution restored the sun to its rightful center as a stable nucleus to our solar system. The previous Geocentric model held the earth at the center. The paradigm shift upon us now is in acknowledging the existential truth of TWO CENTERS; the earth and the sun.
The earth is not only a planet, it is also the physical body, deep in which there is another sun.
This other sun is experienced. It is a sun that rises in our bodies and affirms our existence. It is the feeling of yes.
Our task is in recognizing a true center inside the body, where earth and fire meet. This paradigm shift is a return to the powers of our own individual natures, unique and separate yet united and part of the whole. Such an orientation honors the laws of quantum physics which says you cannot take the observer out of the observed!
The two centers of fire and earth meet high in the heart, building thymos, a spiritedness. Thymos is time that matters. It is experiential and biological, real and spiritual. This time is not wasted. It is stored inside, reversing the law of entropy. The most basic quality of life is its ability to reverse entropy, to store order instead of losing it. All of us can learn to build thymos, a spiritedness, and in doing so restore order to our unique and beautiful natures.
The thymus gland shrinks when our bodies stop growing. Our spirits, our thymos, should never stop growing. We must learn to practice growing it.
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.
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.
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!
The three commonly known states of common matter include solid, liquid and gas. But did you know that there is a 4th state? This state is Plasma, and it makes up 99.99999 % of matter in the visible universe.
On earth we can see it as lightning or the Northern Lights. Not to mention our Sun and all the surrounding stars are giant balls of plasma. Plasma also makes up much of the spaces between the stars in space. It’s everywhere up there.
Plasma au naturale displayed above.
Man-made plasma as found in neon signs by energizing a gas until the electrons break free from, but still travel within the nucleus. A spark in a gas will create a plasma.
Plasma was discovered in 1879 by Sir William Crookes. He called this substance “Radiant Matter”. It wasn’t until 1928 that it was renamed “plasma” by american chemist and physicist, Irving Langmuir.
Langmuir was one of the first scientists to work with this “radiant matter”. He noticed that the way this electrified fluid (the “radiant matter”) carried electrons, ions and impurities reminded him of the way blood plasma carried red and white corpuscles as well as germs.
So even though our current mainstream scientific thought maintains that there is no connection between the plasma in space and the plasma in our blood, there is room to wonder. After all, the scientist who himself named it saw a direct observational connection.
Plasma as a substance is also described in a more ancient way as Aether, or Ether the fifth element.
What is Aether?
The ancient Greeks described Aether as “the high-reighning and ever indestructible power of Zeus” as well as “the best element” and “the life-spark of all creatures”
The greeks also saw Aether as a god who is the personification of the “upper air”. That is, the air that god breathes as opposed to the air bellow breathed by mortals.
One very brilliant scientist who is most famous for studying this mysterious Aether is Nikola Tesla. In fact, Sir William Crookes was Tesla’s mentor!
In a previous post entitled “Venus and the Virtues of Negativity” we explored how lightning emits negative ions, which are calming and restorative to the human body. Think about how calm the air is after a thunderstorm. There is a certain stillness.
The above shape of the energy field is that of a TORUS. A torus is a self-regulating system with a vortex on either end (head and feet in this case) and a VERTEX in the middle.
A vertex is a spot where ALL of the lines of the energy system meet but it is ZERO DIMENSIONAL. That is, perfect stillness.
In 1928 a farmer named Will Keller actually experienced being inside a tornado and lived to tell about it. He described it as “still as death” and he could see all the way up to the top which he estimated was about a half mile away. The visibility was because of the constant flashes of lighting all inside the walls.
If Tesla was able to harness this aether by using Venus (the copper wire) are we able to better connect with OUR own aether by centering ourselves in stillness?
I am not much of a meditator myself but I’m thinking about trying it out now, even if it is only for 10 seconds a day.
In the meantime, let’s all glow with the plasmic flow!
