Re: Platonic Solids as Modes of the Womb

The tetrahedron is usually depicted as one singular point from which three lines descend to found three further points. As such, it seems to symbolize the holy trinity, the three in one. Thus I'm seeing it more as a 1+3, the monad and the triad. The etymology of the Tetragrammaton YHWH is obscured, but it is often thought Yod to be a third person masculine prefix, while He Waw He would indicate active being/existence, becoming, to constite etc. This could be seen sitting well with the tetrahedron's monadic seed on the top (masculine principle) and the three latter letters and points signifying the emanation creating entities, or the higher triad in our system. The masculinity could be further on interpreted through the Hieroglyphic Key to denote the masculinity of the higher triad as a whole (although still having feminine aspects within) - the floating head above the heart, the latter of which uniting the feminine body of the lower triad to the head. Here I am already going forth to the septenaries in the octahedron (unless it's strictly a form of 6 and 9) as well as the cube (when it's standing on one of its corners, and thus forming the hexagram with it's seventh point in the center.)
I have to also correct a mistake that started bothering me when I remembered how the the AUM MANI PADME HUM mantra going through the Hieroglyphic Key points how the four and the five are in on top of each other on the prana cross, and thus my idea of the five in the following quote is off:Utthavat wrote: ↑Sun Jun 05, 2022 3:41 pm
This mistake from me was to state the misinformation that the 9 first decimals of Pi would represent "the creation of the secondary gods."
The book stated that the whole number 3 of Pi represents "the first trinity" and the nine first decimals represent "the complete non-physical world". "Creation of the secondary gods" was represented in the 13 decimals after the 9 first decimals."
But in the light of you correcting your own mistake I'm intrigued to think of the MANI PADME as the nine representing "the complete non-physical world". MANI PADME part is sometimes described as "jewel in the lotus". I think the meaning of the jewel comes back to the sanctity of the square temple, the delicate fragrance - the essence - of the jewel which could be seen closely in touch with the Theosophical idea behind Lipikas and/or the four Maharājas (these are sometimes synonymous, and sometimes separated as different entities). Lipikas as the gods regulating karma, could be seen guarding the essence, guarding from aspirants trying to enter these regions unprepared, and regulating the flow of the essence towards the formation of the world (towards the form giving pentagram), thus the square jewel could be seen in intricate connection with the Lipika aka the four Maharājas. Or this is at least the way I've come to think of it.
From here I'm coming to one possible angle towards the octahedron, where the triangles give birth to the first square. It's a bit dangerous to run with hypotheses in these kinds of places, because these subjects are already very hard to understand and presenting intuitive guesses will easily give people wrong ideas that are then hard to get rid of. But let us remember this warning, and with the added caution I would hypotesise the octahedron to hint of the Lipikas as the following hierarchy from the higher triad, and forming a new plane, a plane of guardianship. This square unites the upward and downward triangles of octahedron and thus allows going from the Holy Trinity to the planetary septenary of our solar system, where the physical bodies of the planets in their instrumental nature allows the idea of the septenary of form (the ideal world of the higher triad and the actualizing world of the lower triad shaking hands and creating corresponding bodies for the 6+1).
PADME on the other hand is depicted as the pentagram in the Hieroglyphic Key illustration following the AUM MANI PADME HUM idea. As the pentagram depicts the elements, whether it is the aetheric side or the more coarse elements, both are generally seen as physical, so in this light my theory of the nine being the same as MANI PADME may have to be thrown in to the bin unless the "non-physical world" is a looser concept allowing aether within it. In any case, we are talking about the human pentagram, which has gained it's five-fold form from the sacredness of the formless square around which we circulated above. This five-foldedness is the form giving principle in general, human form as a quintessence - a purest concentration of substance -, the substance of all forms. The concentration from which all beauty and form bursts out, and as such gives the possibility for the fulfilment of potential - an actualization of the yewel in the lotus. The two pentagrams are depicted here: the falling star is the power of man giving form to everything, and the ascending star is the sanctity of man in raising the form towards the spirit, towards meaning and holy annihilation.
