THE tiller was loose, gently wagging back and forth in the swell. Again I saw the eerie glow upon the mast.
“The new letters, Michael,” said the voice of David.
It was as if I knew the pattern, but had forgotten and needed to be reminded. The strange design of the letters upon the mast; I had seen this before. I could not remember where.
“First, back to the balls,” said David. Again a vision of twelve balls around one appeared before me in the air. It sloly turned and the twelve astrological glyphs appeared on each outside ball.
“The astrological signs,” I thought.
“It is an astrological sign,” David corrected.
Again I looked at the rings. There were four rings of six balls: Four BEasts With Six Wings. I saw the many cosmologies of four; the traditional elements of earth, air, fire and water; the Archangels, and on and on and on. Then I saw three other rings of four balls with cartesian angles of 90 degrees to each other. Seven in all. I thought too of the many cosmologies of seven; seven candlesticks, seven seas, seven, seven. Then I thought of course, of the seven notes of music!
I looked again at the seven seals around the center ball.
"Now, Michael, imagine these rings, all seven extended as a plane of balls in all directions. Seven infinite planes of balls. Now do you see the why sound vibrates in seven directions? Why all vibrations take seven directions? As balls make groups of bigger balls, do you see how sound jumps in octaves, or groups of seven? See how nature is severed in seven ways?”
But I saw even more! I saw a backward science caught in the flatland of two dimensional thinking: a mathematics based on lines and points. I saw the myriad diagrams and oscilloscopes of technology - all based on lines and points. I saw that the Handbook of Chemistry and Physics reflected this by formulae after formulae expressing themselves in powers squared! There it was from the old gravitational force being expressed as distance between masses inversely squared, to Einstein's relations between energy and mass expressed in terms of speed and light squared. I saw that two dimensional ideas were trying to explain a reality that is at the very least three dimensions! I even saw that the exceptions prove the case! That, first when you did see formulae in the Handbook of Chemistry and Physics were cube powers were used, they almost always specifically referred to measuring volume. This was a small percent. The rest of the formulae were about a nature that is a least three dimensions. And these formulae were expressing themselves in powers squared because we were measuring with lines and points, a two dimensional concept. I saw that the few exceptions were exquisite: Kepler describing the speed of a planet on an ellipse as to the power of three. And, yes, I saw that it was Kepler who so long ago saw the keys to this fire in the sky, in the geometry of the common snowflake!
I saw that the “official” science declares that the seven notes of music are “purely psychological,” that there is no “scientific” basis. I saw clearly in my mind that vibration would naturally go in seven different directions. I saw that to “official science” this wrongness was not on a small point: but wrongness to the foundation. I saw that we must throw out “official science.”
“I need you to see something else, Michael,” said the voice of David. “See that this universe is composed of the substance of feelings: the substance of emotions. The physical reality you move in is represented by a specific outside ball: the ball of Taurus. All the other balls, the eleven other astrological signs, plus the central solar ball are, from the standpoint of physical reality, all felt as energy - emotion. When you focus your attention on this group of prime emotions, as it relates to physical reality, you say that you are awake. When you let go of this focus you are said to be asleep or disassociating. You will learn, Michael, that you can be just as ‘awake’ in other realities: That you are really most ‘awake’ in the central or solar reality of your soul which is, in real scientific physics, beyond time - eternal.”
Again I felt strangely familiar with what I was being told - that this was already deepwithin me. I knew also that this voice of David came from that solar reality, eternal - beyond time. I knew also that I, Michael, had a special relationship with one of the four rings of balls.
“Back to the seven,” said the voice. “What I tell you next is the most important part of this message - it is the message of the seven seas. It is why you are listening in these strange circumstances.” I could feel the smile.
The tides and currents in these waters are some of the most confusing of anywhere in the world. It was these waters long ago from the Vineyard that Eldridge first worked out his tide tables. When that difficult task was done the rest of the coast's tides were easy! My eyes fell on the yellow cover of the tide book in the cabin. I was lost. But somewhere I could ‘feel’ the ‘seven seas.’
“Are you really lost, Michael?” I could feel the smile. “The most important part of this message is that even though you need to make, with these changes in mathematics, changes in your thinking, your inetellect; you must also at the same time understand that emotion and feeling are far ahead of intellect. Understand that the order of the Seven Seals, which can be felt, is greater than any intellectual understanding. Think, Michael, of the outside ball of Taurus - the ball of physical reality. Taurus, as is each of the outside twelve balls, is part of the composition of two of the seals of the six and one of the seals of the four. Time and the events in physical reality occur when the seven seals of feeling and emotion act upon the matter of Taurus in a very special order. Once sequence. Listen, feel...! ”
“First felt is ‘gray.’ This is a feeling of decisveness. A feeling that there are endless possibilities depending upon focus.
“The second feeling is ‘black.’ It is a surgical, saturnian feeling. It is the feeling of rupture when emotion begins to move toward any specific focus and therefore all other possiblilities are excluded.
“The third feeling is the ‘blue’ nurturing feeling of Jupiter.
“The fourth feeling is the ‘red’ martial feeling of raw energy.
“The fifth feeling is a ‘green’ venusian, artistic energy.
“The sixth feeling is the ‘yellow’ mercurial feeling associated with thought and intellect. But it is not thought and intellect when it is in the sequence of producing physical events in Taurus. Then it is physical touch which, but the slightest millisecond proceeds...
“The seventh feeling of ‘purple’ is the sensation that follows touch. A raw example whould be the etheric energy that an amputee feels as a phantom limb.”
For some reason I held out my arm. My arm was extended far out over the combing so that it was over the swells. Again the vision of David appeared. This time it was in the sea up to his shoulders. The arm of the vision reached out and touched my hand.
“Touch,” said the vision.
I then felt a sharp, electric jolt.
“Touch, Michael, proceeded the sensation even if it was by the slimmest fraction of time. In the sequence that the seven seals of emotion effect reality - the thought - the mercurial emotion - occurs sixth in the sequence, towards the end, (David emphasized “end”) of the sequence. When it is in the beginning of the sequence we do something that we call ‘thinking.’ When we are thinking the sensation of this mercurial seal insures that the event will not physicalize. That it will be just a thought. When it is the sequence of emotional seals that produce physical events, it feels like touch. Both have the same specifying ‘pointie’ feeling. You think ‘horse’ here, or ‘building’ there, or ‘triangle’ here. Touch is specific too.” Again the arm and hand came toward me. Again I felt the little electric jolts. “I touch you here... and here... and here. So... when you ‘think’ about doing something you place the mercurial feeling first in the sequence to insure that it does not manifest. You can think about doing something and not do it. You can think about doing something while doing it - two different operations done at the same time. Or...” Again, the hand was poised. “you can just do it.” Again the touch, again the jolt. Again the smile. “Michael, it is like riding a bicycle. Thinking about the mechanics of balancing while you are riding usually interferes.”
True, I thought.
“Although this knowledge should advance the basis of your intellectual thinking, as it is all based on geometry, I want to emphasize that feeling is far more important and far more powerful than ‘thinking!’”
I thought of bike riding. Yes, thinking about what you were doing often throws you off balance.
“Yes Michael, and many will take the intellectual knowledge as foremost. They will suffer for this because the twelve elembnts of emotion and the feelings of the seven seals the twelve create have their own intellect, and their own morality. This feeling from deep inside you knows what to do.”
I had studied the elements of emotion in the past. I knew that the red-martial emotion was in the center of the map. It likes to demand and direct. The green-artistic emotion loves to be directed - to be told what to do. ‘Hurt me, beat me, make me write bad checks’ I used to joke. The artistic type loves martial direction and will often take bad direction rather than no martial direction at all. Red-martial emotion stands in the sequence between the blue-nuturing emotion and the green-artistic emotion and martially demands. It can demand anything of the green emotion. But the red emotion can make one and only one demand of the blue-nurturing emotion - it can demand to be told what to do. I knew that this was a provable interatction of emotional chemistry. I knew that if you go up to any stranger on the street and hotly but clearly demand that you be told what to do, ‘tell me what to do,’ that the person will automatically feel responsible and caring toward you. Correctly done it never fails. And that if you demand anything else you will automatically get rebuffed. So powerful is this law of emotional chemistry, you can even try it on your ‘enemies.’ You will be surprised at what they sometimes start telling you before they correct themselves!
But, yes, I could see what David was saying. Many will overlook the emotional aspect of the new knowledge.
From within me I felt deeper words:
The seven seals of energy now quicken. The seven seals now open. Some these vials will bless. Some these vials will curse. Those they curse for a time may do wonders, but their time is shortened. For they shall build this to dogma and the light see not. For they would use the geometry for manipulation and the eternal obtain not. For true this is the endtime to which all souls are born. Now great this separation of which you all were warned.
SeVen is as seVen seVered;
It is fair, for you were warned.
Now Great this Separation
To which all souls are born.
I saw that some would make it near to the finish line, and fail the last test.
