285. The power of spin

Several days ago someone send me a link to a video trailer of Nassim Haramein, Elizabeth Rauscher, phD Nuclear physics and research consultant to NASA, Andrew Cox computer science, Michael Hyson phD, and David Klousie electrical Engineer/chemist. They not only talk about their/his discovery which I have talked and written about for over 10 years, but even using pictures and word play such as black whole /holes I have used to explain the creational model, particularly on black holes which are not holes at all and that every particle is in fact a black w-hole the field that renews, holds planets, neutrons and protons in place, the event horizon is the skin of every particle. But what they do not have is the mathematics or how it works as a whole. While I have revealed a lot, some keys are not being publicised for this very reason at this time but have been officially registered. This to prevent them from using it for personal gain while it belongs to all.

Anyone who has at least woken up to some extend will be able to recognize the presented insights copied from Truth-Revelations to be the only one and true source.

Those very scientists take great care not to mention God or my name, at the very most they admit that the “ancients” might have had knowledge of the laws of nature, while their knowledge surpassed that of their own. They might see that this means they must have had other means to have obtained this knowledge because they did not have the instruments scientists have today. But they will avoid further thinking and looking into this as it would show that reaching those insights does not need scientific qualifications. In fact they are all too often so conditioned by their study and conditioned mind that particularly they are blinded. They will reject anything that does not fit their personal theory or fixed ideas through their education, topped up with personal experiences. While personal experiences are considered to be the most valuable, they are actually the least valuable because they are judged by a prior conditioning.

The following is from a forum set up by Graham Hancock. On this group they mainly look at the pyramids, they add, subtract and multiply linking numbers or work towards numbers they found. Even a whole website dedicated to the Royal cubit and gravity, saying it is based on the maximum speed an object falls from 16 feet and the time it takes, “one second”.

You mentioned the following:
Hint (216/125 foot) 1.728 foot cubit is 20.736 inches, using mean values 30 degrees is located 2073.6 miles from the equator.

My reply:
1250 x 20.736= 25920
It takes the ark of  “45″ times to travel the great zodiacal ocean.
20736/12=1728 but we know 1728 is made up of 3 x 576 “the tree of knowledge and life” therefore 360  a full circle.
If the circle is 20736 then two are 41472 and equals 720 degrees 41472/720=0.576. If we divide 41472 by 8 we get 5184 576 short of 5760 and equal to 9 x 576. 9 is as high as we can go, then it returns to the one again, 5184 is the Alchemy number of transformation.
There were 288 broken pieces “the vessel that fell from heaven” and two vessels 576. Two overlapping circles that create the Vesica Piscis has the circumference of 576. Or through the joining of the hexagram and pentagram. The star of David “hexagram” and David being the heavenly and the pentagram on earth.
It was the birth sign: the star of Bethlehem, the Star of David and its double tail the right configuration of the planets and the stars the 48 within the 12 of the zodiac that did show the way to the magi and 12 such were within the 576. These 48 constellations that are reflected in and on the 32 paths, because the double overlapping circles that create the eight with its circumference of 576 has a value of 18 as indicated by the stone Sumerian clay tablet, “they do not know the value of 18”.
25920 divided by eight “8” is 3240 divide this by the Ark of Covenant 56.25 is 576 which is of course equal to the eight “8”. They are part of a structure that is at the same time the drive/motor of creation.

As above so below.

All mathematics are, if at all of true use, part of a structure that was known to the “ancients” and each culture used a physical story, the figures of Moses, Christ etc. were represented in each culture. Some of today’s researchers have made links to these constellations but then make the mistake to assume that the ancient religions were astrologers and astronomers and some go as far as to say that their wisdom came from the stars/aliens. I am not saying that there is no life out there, in fact the whole universe is full of life, and the universe is life but not as you know it. Some have torus shaped fields, spheres, spiral tubes with fin like features, they control their energy fields like you control your hands and arms. There are physical, mental and spiritual bodies. Most of you have good physical control but much less mental control although many think they are in control, but none are consciously operating from spirit. While some have had outer body experiences most are still stuck to the mental level, only one point added: they are now sure that they are able to see without the aid of physical eyes. This is a good step once they understand that they just changed one illusion for another. Mind is a tool, but all too often the emotional body is in control. Many think that if they feel with the heart, act upon what the heart tells them, then they are on the right track. Wrong! Jesus warns us saying that the heart cannot be trusted.

But I wish to move on and point out that the star of Bethlehem has seven points. These 7 are found in many religions, the seven horsemen, the seven chakras, the seven planets, 7 days. Remember while we look into this a little further that they are a reflection from above to below, what is above is also below and what is below is reflected in the above. What this means will become clear as you continue to study the material provided on truth-revelations.

Someone said that mathematics proved that it is impossible that the star of Bethlehem was real and you cannot follow a star to a place/a stable, here is what he said: A mathematical analysis of the ’star of Bethlehem’, which I presented here, shows that no such star, whatever its nature, could have been followed to Bethlehem. The conclusion is that the story of the Star of Bethlehem is a fabrication.

My reply:
You are correct, there was no such thing as a single star or comet, but to go as far as to say that the star of Bethlehem is a fabrication? It is as if you think that they were really talking about a single star. You could see it as a roadmap of the 48 signs of the zodiac “with its movements” within a structure called the star of Bethlehem, how?
It is one of many names given to a hexagram and joined pentagram, when you look at it, it looks like the star of David with two tails, and has 7 points and the whole of the Bible is kind of wrapped around it.
When you place two circles around the hexagram and pentagram, it creates the Vesica Piscis. This configuration is set in the great Zodiac. All the numbers and measurements given in the Bible and several other religions are based on this and can be found to fit perfectly. Their cyclic motions as a whole describe a story line, as each sign/point has a meaning/character (a weak version of this is our present day astrology), but a closer look shows that it is a kind of mirror of the whole of “creation”, “the laws”, ” the science”. But it is those conclusions that kind of say, well technically/mathematically it cannot be your idea what it did mean and therefore a fabrication or in other words reducing its value that tends to blind us from seeing it in the reflections which is the physical world.
Because in another way than you might think, these stories are very true.
Those who see it, be it scientist or not, would bow to God. Even if this title might cause some to put up a blind/screen, because that attitude too has come from having measured the unknown with the known.

Just as many people today believe in how the movement and the positions of the stars and planets influence your behaviour, your moods and determine your fate, so did the people from ancient times. Astrology dates back many thousands of years even pre-dating written records. Astronomy too dates back to ancient times. Examples of this can clearly be seen in creation myths that tell you about the creation of the planets and the role they had in creating the human race.

The ancients named the planets, often giving them the names of their relevant deities. We can also read that the substance used to create the planets was also the substance used to create the human race. It is undeniable that the ancient’s view was that the human race was in one way or another linked to the planets, stars and the universe. This link was so strong to these people that these early astronomers had no doubt that what they viewed when they looked up to the heavens had a direct influence on their everyday life.

To show this link I have chosen three examples. The first example is from the Sumerian/Mesopotamian era and shows the names of the relevant deities associated with the planets and names, the seven who decreed fate, who the Sumerians/ Mesopotamians believed determined their fate. The second example is from the Mandaean belief which dates back at least two thousand years and is an outline of the baptism when a new born receives his/her secret name. The third example is taken from the dead sea scrolls found at Qumran and has a likely date of around the end of the first century BCE. This example shows fragmented text that deals with what a person will become given the time of his birth along with a particular celestial alignments.

The Seven who decree fate

Within Sumerian mythology we find many amazing stories relating to gods and heroes. These stories have sparked the imagination of many authors. However authors often refer to a set of Sumerian deities known as the Seven who decree fate.
The names of these Seven are as yet unknown as no text as to date has been uncovered that specifically names them. What is agreed upon by both experts and other authors on the subject is that the four main deities from Sumerian mythology must be amongst the Seven who decree fate.

King Apkallu
Aalu Uan
Alalgar Uanduga
Ameluana Enmeduga
Amegalane Enmegalama
E[nm]eusumgalana Enmebuluga
Dumuzi Anenlilda
Enmeduranki Utuabzu

The Cities where kingship was handed down are as follows:

The first seat of kingship was at Eridu(g) before kingship moved to Badtibira.
From Badtibira kingship moved to Larak
From Larak kingship passed to Sippar.
From Sippar kingship passed to Shuruppak.
After a period of kingship at Shuruppak the flood swept there over.
A total 241,200 years for the reign of the first kings before the flood.

The Apkallu, priest kings or great sages, were the advisors to the kings that ruled during this period and are regarded as the originators of the arts and skills of civilisation. Their duties amongst other things was to commune with the deities and relate the messages of the gods to the people. Each Sumerian city had Ziggurats, temples dedicated to a specific deity. This did not mean that the people of that city only worshipped and paid tribute to one specific deity. Although the cities had a main place of worship for their resident deity, other deities where also worshipped in the cities.

We also know that the Sumerians were astronomers. They plotted the movements of the stars and planets, named the constellations and split the sky into the twelve houses of the zodiac. For the Sumerians there were seven planets that crossed the heavens. The Sun and Moon which they believed to be planets along with Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. All these heavenly bodies are visible with the naked eye from Earth. The Sumerians were also astrologers. Many modern astrologers use the positions of the stars and planets to predict future events and to reveal what the fates have in store for us. The Sumerians had a similar practice but it was based on a lot more than the 7 planets in relation to the zodiac and its 48 signs of which 12 most are familiar with.

This knowledge of using the stars and planets to predict events to come was a closely guarded secret kept by those who put this knowledge into practice, the temple priests. The Secrete Knowledge Tablet for example describes what will happen to an astronomer who teaches his knowledge to the wrong people, ultimately he would become poor and be killed by a disease. The Goal Year Text was used to predict events that may occur during the coming year. The Mul Apin tablet contained astronomical information which included times for the rising and setting of constellations.

The Sumerians, as did many other cultures, gave each planet a deity equivalent:

Nanna = Moon
Enki = Mercury
Inanna = Venus
Utu = Sun
Gugalanna = Mars
Enlil = Jupiter
Ninurta = Saturn

The Sumerians also used the first appearances of stars and planets along with specific alignments to signify the start of certain celebrations such as the harvest festival and the coming new year. An ideal example of this can be seen in the Inana and Iddin-Dagan poem.

“I shall greet her who ascends above, her who ascends above, I shall greet the Mistress who ascends above, I shall greet the great lady of heaven, Inana! I shall greet the holy torch who fills the heavens, the light, Inana, her who shines like daylight, the great lady of heaven. He placed the Lordship and kingship in her hands. She takes her seat on the great days with An; she determines the fates in her Land with Enlil.
When at evening, the radiant star, the Venus star, the great light which fills the holy heavens, the lady of the evening, ascends above like a warrior, the people in all the lands lift their gaze to her. At night the skilled and beautiful one (?), the joy of An, the ornament of broad heaven, appears like moonlight; in the heat of the noon she appears like sunlight.
After the storehouses of the Land have been filled with fine food, and all the lands and the black-headed people have assembled, they parade before her, holy Inana. The lady exalted as high as the heaven, Inana, is August.”

These extracts, and many more references, from the Inana and Iddin-Dagan poem show Inanna/ Venus rising as the evening star, the celebration of the harvest festival and the rituals performed for the coming new year which in the Sumerian calendar came August/September just after the harvest.

The witnessing of certain star’s and planet’s first appearances in the night sky where observed from vantage points atop the Ziggurats. These observation points have been known and planned before the construction of the Ziggurats. In effect the movement of the planets determined the locations of the Ziggurats and even the Cities that housed them.

If we now turn to another well-known epic tale known as the Epic of Gilgamesh we read in the opening lines:

“Look at its wall which gleams like copper(?), inspect its inner wall, the likes of which no one can equal! Take hold of the threshold stone–it dates from ancient times! Go close to the Eanna Temple, the residence of Ishtar, such as no later king or man ever equalled! Go up on the wall of Uruk and walk around, examine its foundation, inspect its brickwork thoroughly. Is not (even the core of) the brick structure made of kiln-fired brick, and did not the Seven Sages themselves lay out its plans?”

This section of the Epic of Gilgamesh is taken from an Assyrian translation of the epic poem. Note the line: did not the Seven Sages themselves lay out its plans? Who were the Seven Sages? We have already established that the Apkallu where known as the great sages and over the period of 241,200 years seven Apkallu had reigned alongside those early kings. It would be farfetched to assume that the plans for the building of Uruk took many, many generations to complete. We have already established that the Apkallu where the interpreters of the gods. These gods would have had to have been deities who’s actions could have been seen and interpreted by the Apkallu. The Apkallu thus being associated with the deities that are visible namely the seven planets that cross the heavens.

As already mentioned the Apkallu were the originators of the arts and crafts of civilisation and this knowledge the Apkallu handed down would have come straight from the deities and in doing so the deities themselves would have been the original great sages who passed their knowledge onto their earthly ministers who then gave that knowledge to the population.

When we now look at the line from the Epic of Gilgamesh, “did not the Seven Sages themselves lay out its plans”, we can make the connection that it was the observations and alignments of the seven visible planets and the 48 signs at a given time that specified the location and possibly the whole layout of the city of Uruk.

So far we have seen the importance of and the influences the movements of the planets and stars had on the Sumerian people. Astrology played an important role in predicting future events, informing the temple priests when certain celebrations would begin and predicting the alignments and locations of Ziggurats, temples and whole cities. In effect the seven planets decreed the fates of the Sumerian people.

We can now go back to the problem of naming the Seven who decree fate. We know that the experts on Sumerian mythology have come to the conclusion that An, Enlil, Enki and Ninhursag must have been amongst these seven however when we once again look at the seven planets and their Sumerian deity equivalents:

Nanna = Moon
Enki = Mercury
Inanna = Venus
Utu = Sun
Gugalanna = Mars
Enlil = Jupiter
Ninurta = Saturn

We can see here that An and Ninhursag are missing from this list. An, the head of the Sumerian pantheon, was never allocated a planetary equivalent while Ninhursag was also known as mother Earth and so her planetary equivalent would have been Earth. Both An and Ninhursag would never have been viewed as heavenly bodies crossing the night sky. In this respect neither An’s nor Ninhursag’s movements, positions or alignments could have influenced those early astronomers to use their positions in the night sky to predict future events and the fates of the population. To find the true names of the Seven who decree fate we need look no further than the seven heavenly bodies with their deity equivalents that can be viewed crossing the heavens from all corners of the globe.

The Mandaean Secrete Name

The Masbutta baptism is a part of the Mandaean religious ritual that is practised by all Mandaeans and should be carried out every Sunday Habsaba. This baptism serves not only to reduce the quality and quantity of punishment in the afterlife but also serves to purify the practitioner from any previous transgressions. The Masbutta is also performed as a baptism on the new-born children.
It is during this first baptism that the Mandaean child is given a secret name. Mandaeans have four names, a family name, a clan name, a personal Arab name and a secret name. This secret name is the most important one and will hardly ever be told to a stranger. The secret name is an astrological name that is calculated, before the ceremony, by the priest who will produce a short list of names for the parents to choose one for their child.

This secret, astrological name, ‘the name of the sign of the zodiac’, is calculated by placing the twelve signs of the zodiac, from Aires to Pisces, in a circle, then beginning from the sign corresponding to the month of the child’s birth, the priest moves from sign to sign according to the number of hours in the day prior to the infants birth to arrive at the sign of the zodiac under whose influence lay the hour of the day the birth occurred. It is the numerical value of the sign that counts. From this number the astrological name of the mother is then subtracted. Once this final number has been reached the priest then compiles a list of names from the Book of the Zodiac and the parents then choose the name from this list. The priest will subtract the numerical name of the mother because in rituals each person’s name is followed by ‘son of X’. X being the mothers name. In this way the numerical value of the name is always the same as the numerical value of the dominant sign of the zodiac at the time of the birth.

The Qumran Community

The Dead Sea Scrolls contain several fragmented texts that deal with astrology and astronomy, such as the phases of the moon and zodiacal calendar. Of particular interest are a few texts that deal with the birthdays and the physical characteristics of the members of the community. This in turn determines, amongst other things, how many parts of dark and light a member of the community is made up of.

“……and his thighs are long and lean, and his toes are thin and long. He is of the second column. His spirits consists of six (parts) in the House of Light and three of the Pit of Darkness. And this is his birthday on which he (is to be/was?) born: in the foot of the Bull. He will be meek and his animal is the bull.
…..and his head……. [and his cheeks are] fat. His teeth are of uneven length (?). His fingers are thick, and his thighs are thick and very hairy, each one.
His toes are thick and short. His spirit consists of eight (parts) in the House of Darkness and one from the House of Light.
…..order. His eyes are black and glowing. His head is….. And it is…..
His voice is gentle. His teeth are fine and well aligned. He is neither tall, nor short. And he….. And his fingers are thin and long. And his thighs are smooth.
And the soles of his feet….. [and his toes] are well aligned. His spirit consists of eight (parts) in the House of Light, of ] the second Column, and one [ in the House of Darkness. And this is] his birthday on which he (is to be/was) born….. And his animal is….. mixed but not too much. His eyes will be between white and black.
His nose will be long and beautiful. His teeth will be even. His beard will be thin but not too much so. His limbs will be smooth and between reduced thick.”

These examples show how planetary and star constellation’s positions and movements played an important role in the everyday lives of the peoples involved.

In Plato’s Timaeus dialogue, Plato, drawing from archaic knowledge, goes into detail of explaining the creation of the universe. Plato’s creator is the Demiurge, a word that originally meant craftsman and was later associated with the creator God and in some cases had a demonic connection.
The Demiurge compounded the four elements fire, earth, air and water to create the perfect sphere. At the centre of this sphere he created another, the Earth, who he made a living being, whose life was eternal. He then created the seven younger gods, these being the seven visible planets known to the ancients as Moon, Sun, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Saturn and Jupiter, all living beings and like the Earth immortal (the Sun and Moon where thought to be planets and the Earth was thought to be at the centre of the universe).
However before creating the gods Demiurge had first created the soul of the universe for it was his bidding that the soul should rule the body and so must be created first. Using three other elements described as the other, the same and the essence, Demiurge mingled these elements together to form one which he then divided lengthways into two parts. One part he placed at the edge of heaven to form the ecliptic (the imaginary) line the planets orbit around, the second became the Earth’s axis, a line running through the poles. The soul both divided and united reached out everywhere from the centre to the circumference of heaven.
Demiurge’s universe had been forged but it was still incomplete. Four tribes of creatures had yet to be created, those that dwell in heaven, those that occupy the sky, those that dwell under the oceans and those that dwell on land. The first to come into existence were the deities of heaven. Oceanus and Tethys were the children of Earth and Heaven, and from these sprang Phorcys and Cronos and Rhea, and all that generation; and from Cronos and Rhea sprang Zeus and Here, and all those who are said to be their brethren, and others who were the children of these.
When the deities had all been created Demiurge instructed them that the universe was still incomplete, three tribes of creatures must still be created. This task was to be done by the deities of heaven for if Demiurge himself created them they would be as the universe everlasting though out all time. Demiurge once again poured into the cup the remains of the element of which he had created the soul of the universe and mingled it in much the same manner, but diluted to the second and third degree.
The mixture was divided into equal parts, equal to all the stars and assigned each soul to a star. Demiurge then gave the laws of destiny to the deities of heaven. After handing down these laws Demiurge sowed some of them in the Earth and some in the Moon and some in the other instruments of time (the stars). He committed the younger gods the seven planets (Earth being the oldest God) to furnish what was lacking from the mortal soul.
The deities following the instruction of the Demiurge took the elements of fire, earth, air and water from the Earth and created the three remaining tribes of creatures, man being the dominant of the mortals, and in this mortal vessel they placed the soul that Demiurge had mingled from the remains of the universal soul.

Plato’s account of the creation of the universe and of mortals shows an archaic belief that the universe is a living being with a soul that reaches out and touches everything. Humans too bare a remnant of this universal soul, each soul consisting in part of what the universal soul is made up of and each soul in part touched by the seven younger gods Moon, Sun, Venus, Mercury, Mars, Saturn and Jupiter.

The Cathar faith became very popular during the 12th century in some parts of Europe. Unfortunately not a great lot of documentation has survived regarding the Cathars and what documents have survived are records kept by the inquisition who persecuted, condemned and executed those who followed the faith of the Cathars.

The Cathar faith rose in popularity so much so that the Christian church viewed it as a threat to their own practices and condemned the Cathars as heretics. They sent in the inquisition to deal with the growing problem.
Although we only begin to hear of the Cathars from around the 12th century onwards, the Cathars must have been around for many hundreds of years before this time. Evidence of this can be seen in the Cathar’s beliefs and in what the perfecti preached. The perfecti or good men (although both men and women could become perfecti) where the ordained Cathars, the believers, priests of the Cathar faith.
The Cathars followed the true teachings of Jesus who was taught by John the Baptists and who went on to teach John the Divine who in turn wrote the Gospel of Love which was the only scripture the Cathars gave credence to. They taught that Jesus came to reveal, not to redeem. To the Cathars Jesus came to teach the true path to salvation and not to die for our sins.
The Cathars believed there were two gods, the Demiurge, an evil god, and the good god who was pure spirit. It was the Demiurge that created the Earth and everything within it including our bodies. The Cathars denied the existence of hell and only by living a good and pure life would the soul be reunited with the good god after death.
The Cathars did not believe that the god of the Old Testament was the good and righteous god. After all the god of the Old Testament had caused the flood, drowning many people, destroyed the people of Sodom and even approved of murder by ordering the Israelites to massacre the people of Cannon to name but a few deaths in the name of the god of the Old Testament.

To remain pure the perfecti refrained from any form of sexual activity. They ate no meat or any byproduct from animals such as eggs, milk and cheese. The abstention from eating meat stemmed from their belief of an impure soul being reincarnated into animals and by eating meat they may be consuming an impure human soul awaiting revelation. They could however eat fish which was believed to be the product of spontaneous conception in the water and thus pure. Those who simply followed the Cathar faith had no such dietary or sexual restrictions placed upon them.

The perfecti were a hands on people, they lived and toiled amongst their communities, they were also great healers and herbalists. Jesus had taught by following the true path all would be able to accomplish what he had. The perfecti believed this sacred knowledge had come from the good god and by remaining on the path of the true teachings of Jesus the perfecti would reunite with the true, good god that was pure spirit.

The Hermetica is a Greek translation of the teachings of Thoth. The Greeks viewed Thoth as being the same as their own god Hermes and to distinguish the Egyptian god from their own Hermes the Greeks gave Thoth the tittle of Trismegistus (Thrice Great). Egyptian knowledge and spirituality was something the Greeks viewed with awe. This can be seen in the writings of Plato as much of his own work in the Timaus dialogues regarding the creation of the universe parallels that of Thoth’s teachings on the same subject. Thoth was believed to be a great sage whose wisdom eventually venerated him to god status.

In Egyptian mythology Atum is the creator, the supreme god. In his teachings Thoth names the creator as Atum. It was through the power of mind/thought that Thoth was able to reach Atum and the creator showed Thoth how the universe was created and instructed him to record this knowledge. Thoth saw Atum as a bright light, a light that was the mind of Atum, a light united with joyous love, a light that was everything. But the light cast a shadow which formed the chaotic, restless waters. The light then uttered a word which calmed the chaotic waters. This calming word was the Son of God and the word fell upon the fertile waters and the four elements came into being and combined to create the living creatures. The element of fire was articulated to form the stars and the gods of the seven heavenly bodies revolving in their endless celestial circles. The word then reunited with the mind of Atum and Atum now instructed Thoth to write down what he had seen and to make himself a spiritual guide for those worthy of the knowledge so that, through Thoth, Atum may save humankind. Atum is everywhere, Atum is all things yet Atum cannot be seen. Atum can only be seen through thought and it was through thought that Thoth saw the creator and it was through thought that Atom showed Thoth the creation of the universe. The Light that was everything, the chaotic waters that became the cosmos, the creation of the stars and planets and finally all the living creatures.

The collective works of Thoth have become known as the Hermetica.

But did the ancient Greeks have any notions of the chakras or any chakra system? The answer is yes. Classical Greek ideas about the chakras are contained in the writings of Plato, and alluded to in the teachings of Pythagoras and in the Hermetic traditions of Western esoteric ism.

Plato and the chakras

The clearest Greek ideas on the chakras come from Plato, who writes about them in his dialogue Timaeus. Basically, Plato considered the chakras to be subtle organs that the soul, or psyche uses to relate to the gross physical body. According to Plato’s philosophy, the soul has three basic parts, or levels of expression:

Nous or Logos – This is the highest part or level of soul expression, which Plato called the psyche, or immortal soul. Its attributes are reason, wisdom and spiritual insight. It finds expression through the Crown and Brow centres.

Thymos – This is the middle level of soul expression, or what Plato called the mortal soul. Its basic attributes are passion, fight and drive. It finds expression through the middle three chakras: the Throat, Heart and Gastric centres.

Epithymia – This is the level of desire and instinct, and is the lowest level of soul expression. It is also concerned with basic survival needs and appetites, and finds expression through the two lowest chakras: the Generative and Root centres.

Obvious parallels can be drawn between Plato’s three levels of soul expression and the three Gunas of yogic philosophy, as well as the ego, id and superego of Freudian psychology. The correspondences are:

Nous, Logos – the Sattva Guna and the superego. Thymos – the Rajas Guna and the ego. Epithymia – the Tamas Guna and the id.

The Greco-Roman chakras

Greek: Koruphe Latin: Vertex

Plato said that humans stand upright because the divine consciousness incarnate in their brains is naturally attracted to the heavens, and to God. The crown centre has also been depicted as a nimbus or halo around the heads of saints and spiritual adepts in Greece as far back as the 3rd century BCE.
Hindus call it Sahasrara, or the Thousand Petalled Lotus.

The Brow Centre

Greek: Enkephalos Latin: Cerebrum

This centre Plato considered to be the seat of the psyche, or immortal soul, which the Romans called the genios or anima. In Homeric times, the heart was considered to be the seat of the soul or consciousness in man, but by Plato’s and Hippocrates’s day, the head or brain was seen as the seat of the soul and rational mind. The physical substance seen to embody the essence of the soul was the marrow or cerebral-spinal fluid. The Brow Centre and all the chakras are rich in this sap or marrow, from which emanates their spiritual energy. As the seat of the rational mind, the Brow Centre was seen to exert a controlling or restraining action on all the lower chakras. The Sanskrit name for this chakra, Ajna, means “Command Centre”.

The Throat Centre

Greek: Trachelos Latin: Collum

Plato called this chakra the isthmus or boundary between the psyche, or immortal soul, and the mortal soul, or thymos. It allows for communication between the two, between the reason of the mind and the passions of the body, but forms a kind of filter or purifier to only allow refined spiritual energy to ascend to the head. The Throat Centre is the psychosomatic link between mind and body. The Sanskrit name for this chakra, Vishuddha, means “With Purity”, which is an apt description.

The Heart Centre

Greek: Phrenes Latin: Cor

This chakra contains the thymos, which Plato identified as the higher part of the mortal soul. This thymos is also the essence of the Vital Faculty, the heart and lungs, which concerns pneuma, “576” the Breath or Spirit. In Homer’s time, it was considered to be the seat of all thought, feeling and consciousness. By Plato’s time the Heart Centre had become the seat of the passions, emotions and feeling mind, whereas the Brow Centre was the seat of the rational mind and soul. In Plato’s system, a Midriff Partition, which manifests physically as the diaphragm, exists between the Heart Centre and the three lower centres, which are concerned primarily with the body and its needs. Being the first of the chakras that are truly concerned with spirit and the higher life of man beyond the needs of the body, a kind of spiritual rebirth takes place in the Heart Centre. The Sanskrit name for this chakra, Anahata, means, “unstruck”, referring to the spiritual sounds and music heard here.

The Gastric Centre, or Solar Plexus

Greek: Gaster Latin: Abdomen

Located in the solar plexus, between the diaphragm and the navel, the Gastric Centre is the seat of the lower part of the mortal soul, or what Plato called the Appetitive Soul. The Appetitive Soul is the source of our appetites and desires, and says, “Feed me!” It is the seat of the Fire element, which consumes and digests food in the process of pepsis. It is also the seat of personal power, ambition and drive, which seeks to conquer all and assimilate it into oneself. The Sanskrit name for this chakra, Manipura, means “Jewel City”, since it sparkles with the fire of a million jewels.

The Generative Centre

Greek: Gonades Latin: Genitalia

This is the centre of the Generative Faculty and procreative function. Plato says that in this centre is made “the bonds of life which unite the Soul with the Body”. This is the desire of life for Life, which draws a new soul into physical embodiment. Powerful forces and drives, transcending the boundaries of personal consciousness, motivate this centre. The ancient Greeks considered semen to be a kind of cerebrospinal sap or spiritual essence that was passed down the spine and into the womb to produce a new life. The Sanskrit name for this chakra, Swaddhisthana, or, “One’s Own Dwelling”, aptly describes it, since many, preoccupied by their sexual feelings, spend a lot of time dwelling here.

The Root Centre

Greek: Hieron Osteon Latin: Os Sacrum

The Greek and Latin names for this centre mean, “sacred bone”, since it was believed that the sacral bone was the centre of the whole skeleton, and that the whole body could be regenerated from this bone. The Root Centre is located at the base of the spinal column, which the ancient Greeks called Hiera Syrinx, or the “Holy Reed”, or tube; this corresponds to the Sanskrit Sushumna channel. This centre is the seat of consciousness in its most primitive form, which is our basic survival instincts, or a clinging on to life. The Sanskrit name for this centre, Muladhara, means “Root Support”, since, energetically, this chakra supports all the others.

Besides these seven spinal energy centres, the ancient Greeks recognized several peripheral, lesser energy centres in the hands, thighs, and knees. These parts were believed to contain a high concentration of sap or marrow, or the Radical Moisture, and hence spiritual energy as well. Modern physiology recognizes the presence of various endocrine glands which secrete potent vital essences called hormones, located at or near the spinal energy centres.

It should be clear that all this information has one and the same source. And the principles and structure we have shown and were known by several different names is equal to the creation, from spirit to matter.
