Sloka Five: The Physics of Beauty
Swan who guides the sun:
The constellation of Cygnus, the Swan (also called the Northern Cross) is positioned in the Orion arm "upstream" from the solar system. The massive white tail-star, Deneb, alpha Cygni, determines the visual signature of the constellation: southward, in the direction toward galactic center. Deneb has almost no proper motion relative to the surrounding stream of stars. Actually it moves in synchronization with the sun so that it seems to hold a steady flare, like a pilot ship upriver, "ahead" in the spacetime continuum. Visually, the Swan glides down the Milky Way guiding the sun and its fleet of planets around the vast curve of the local limb and around toward the center of the Orion Galaxy.
Cassiopeia Pegasus Andromeda:
Constellations of the northern skies, associated with the Gnostic myth of the Fallen Aeon, Sophia, who becomes the Earth Goddess, Gaia. Her story is remembered by Andromedans in the Saga of the Great Sigh.
On Andromeda, the mirror-world of human experience, aesthetic laws work like natural laws on earth. This is the physics of beauty. Plants grow there otherwise and flowers bloom in another way, mirroring how the Gaian habitat would look were it seen ecstatically, beheld in the rush of beautiful looking, without identification. On Andromeda everything looks that way, normally.
The parallel world in Andromeda is a close replica of the world inhabited by humanity on earth except that it contains no refuse, no rejected or superfluous elements of any kind. Identification produces the illusion of division, a false perception of inequality in which some factors must always be discarded, discounted, disrespected. On Andromeda no one throws anything away because there is nothing to discard. There is no look that does not praise what it beholds. In that parallel world everyone gets the attention they need because no one gets a special or superfluous dose of attention.
Throughout the entire range of the Becoming the myriad mirror-worlds are co-emergent one pair at a time. The Divine Trinity arises because in each pair the primary counterpart is coupled with a secondary counterpart. Primary counterparts mirror each other, as earth and Andromeda do. The secondary counterpart to earth, dimensionally concealed within the sun, mirrors the coupling of earth and Andromeda. The mirroring is fractal and extrapolating: the entire galaxy of Andromeda mirrors life on Gaia, but not vice versa, because the mirroring is assymmetric.
The Andromedan mirror-world and the earth-world arise together, co-emergently, just as people in a room arise simultaneously with their images beheld in a mirror placed in the room. When they appear in the room so do their images appear in the mirror. When their images appear in the mirror so do they in the room. Twinned worlds are subliminally intermingled the way dream and waking are. Each world lends some of its physical properties to the other. Scientists on earth will be forever baffled by the most elementary properties of the physical world as long they fail to realize that another set of laws intrudes into terrestrial laws. In cosmic co-emergence the beauty of physics intermingles with the operation of physical laws.
An example of co-emergent physics can be seen in the realm of plants and trees. A stalk of wheat would not be able to stand erect were it subject exclusively to terrestrial laws. The grain in the head of the stalk is heavy, and so the grain falls to earth due to terrestrial laws, but the stalk of the growing plant defies gravity. It plunges upward, straight and true. Before it can fall, die and regenerate, the grain must be raised into communion with the entire cosmic environment. The beauty of its self-offering is framed by Andromeda laws. On earth gravity is the primary world-shaping force. On Andromeda, levity is.
It is true that centrifugal force on earth has its counterpart in centripetal force, in gravity, but it would be pure foolishness to presume that centrifugal force -- i.e., fleeing away from the center of mass -- holds the wheat-stalk upright, or allows trees to dance lithely in the air, or causes millions of other plants, grasses and climbing vines to writhe ecstatically toward the heavens. Human ingenuity cannot produce the miracle of the wheat-stalk, the spiralling morning glory vine, or a massive sequoia tree. In terms of engineering these are living design miracles that defy both gravity and mechanical law. Nothing constructed by human skill could be so supple and yet so stable. Constructed on terrestrial principles, the wheat stalk is nevertheless incapable of standing tall and steady due to terrestrial laws alone. It needs the co-emergence of Andromedan physics. The plant-world on earth mirrors the physics of beauty, the aesthetic laws that prevail on Andromeda. Van Gogh’s sunflowers grow there as they appear in his paintings, gelatinously puckered into the translucent plasma of the atmosphere.
Scientists on earth will never work out terrestrial physics unless they recognize that all physical events on the planet arise from the conjuncture of two distinct systems of physical law, Andromedan and terrestrial. It takes two to know one.
your heart will have divined its apposition:
The dynamic coupling of Gaian and Andromedan physics is not merely a physical event, it is also an ethical situation. The key to Andromedan ethics is pleasure. The key to earthside ethics is trust. The formula they yield is trust pleasure, precisely what human beings so grievously fail to do. Hence humans are prone to deviate from the subtle principle that regulates their narrative lines, their particular stories. The dyad of trust/pleasure is not an apposition, but appositions are divined through it. Working apposition is the secret to harmony in the Gaian habitat. It is the most playful and efficacious path of transcendence, and the most mysterious. The complementation realized when pleasure and trust are held to be sacred is the somatic) basis of human morality.
It is not easy to comment on these arcane matters, but as translator I feel an obligation to clarify what I can.
In Buddhist teaching Ultimate Reality is experiential and manifests in three Kayas (Dimensions) called Dharma, Sambhoga and Nirmana, unified by an additional 4th Kaya, Sahaja. (In Hindu Tantra parallel to Buddhist metaphysics these Dimensions are called the four Mudras, "seals.") Andromedans constantly perceive the Kayas through "conversions" innate to their divinatory faculties: aural-visual conversion, the union of awareness and emptiness (Dharmakaya); aural-spatial conversion, the union of bliss and emptiness (Sambhogakaya); and visual-spatial conversion, the union of appearance and emptiness (Nirmanakaya). With Sahaja the four Kayas are melded into Mahamudra, the Seal of Perfect Delight.
The alternative history of the human species known to Andromedans affords them with enlightened insight but also gives occasion for immense sadness. It is so obvious what is going wrong on Earth, and so obvious that humanity doesn’t have a clue to what is going wrong. The plight reduces to the loss of trust. All disintegration, natural and moral, proceeds from this privation. This is true entropy operating through a lack of empathy, for empathy relies on trust. Humans who crave to imagine divinity do not see that imagination is divine and ought not be applied to such fantasies, but to perform kind and practical works, to play and heal. The more the "love of God" is invoked, the less empathy matters among sentient creatures. The religious complex that culminates in the Piscean Age will bring the human species to its demise, for religion is the terminal deviation. Andromedans know this deeply because their version of the human story centers on the episode of Sophia’s Plunge, the event that generates the Archons (deviant entities who inspire salvationist religion and erroneous notions of divinity, according to Gnostic sources). In their empathy for human doubles, Andromedas dream another story and project across the dusty reaches of spacetime a message of spiritual liberation, belated but not too late. The Andromeda Link reveals the path of divine duality in the way appropriate for the human species on the verge of its demise. It insures that sacred trust restored at last (stanza 36) is possible, although it guarantees the attainment of it to no one in particular.
In the Andromedan view of life on Earth, the fatal error is clear: to hold beliefs that connect human experience to the Sacred is the mark of religious striving, but to regard those beliefs as sacred is an error that perverts the connection with the Sacred. No belief is sacred, but what bonds humankind to the Sacred is the trust that sustains any and all belief. To believe is to confer trust. Natives of M31 know that the power of trust is in the dose. For one to trust one is already the foundation of a world-system. If trust is the sacred bond, and what we trust is nonsense or worse, the connection to the Sacred is lost and lives go down in peril, worlds disintegrate. At the close of Kali Yuga life on earth becomes intolerable as trust comes to be conferred upon the most invidious, most deviant things imaginable.
Trust is the terrestrial glue, as pleasure is the Andromedan glue. Together these give cohesion to all actions in those mirroring worlds. Although it supports and sustains any and all belief, trust is not a matter of believing. Trust is the counterpoint to love. This is sublime apposition. To trust truly and creatively is to know that something apposite responds to that trust, something in the cosmic order of Becoming responds accordingly and provides love for what is taken into trust.
When you know how what you trust is supported by what loves you for trusting, your heart will have divined its apposition.
