THE SHAPE OF TIME AND THE DEVELOPMENT OF CONCIOUSNESS
NOTE: On Robert's Friday evening presentation, he will give an overview of many important Sacred Geometry topics, taken from his past and present publications, all to be expanded on in his weekend workshop
Number and Geometry as the Language of Nature and Time
The Hindu tradition of Triangular images (Yantras).
The female and male Yantras and the images of the creative and destructive potential of the worlds.
The triangulation of Number as the template of form and time.
The three primarily numerical progressions and the law of the inverse
The progression of 1 - 8 = Law or Harmonics (Time)
1.-.10 = Law of Form (Space)
1 - 12 = Law of Cycles (Alternation)
The Birth of Form from the Circle and the Promise of the return of form to the origins = Pi = _
The promise of the perfection of Form in existence = Phi = _
The great numerical and philosophical error of history and its role in the Nihilism of Modern Thought
The invention of Zero
The Great Loss; The concept of an original "Absolute Unity" preceding creation = One in Union with an infinite potential of multiplicity =Two
This philosophical basis of One and Two is configured in the square and is fundamental to the laws of the harmonics and the octave.
Time as a universal spiralling vortex.
Recent discoveries in Physics now postulates that time itself must be considered as an active field of force, comparable in a categorical sense to elector-magnetism and/or gravity. This recent conceptualization of time confirms the ancient temporal doctrine of the Yuga System with its associated theory of the Four Great Ages.
The Pythagorean Diagrams of the Tetractys as the corner stone of the Yuga system and the Four Great Ages
The Four Great Ages of the Yuga prophesy as Universal Archetype for:
The four alchemical stages of conscious development
Primal Metals- Golden Age, Silver Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age
The Four Directions of space - South, North, East and West.
The Four Castes, the Four Races, the Four Cultures, and the Four Genders as key divisions in History and Social order.
The four fundamental intonations in music and psychic harmony.
The four alchemical colour stages of the Fire of Existence, White, Yellow, Red and Black. (With Illustration)
The Square: Primary structure of symmetry and stability with its origins in the Paradoxical Law of Complimentary Opposition.
The Squaring of the Circle: this initiatic geometric problem is inscribed in the exact correspondence between the dimensions of the earth and moon with the number of years in the final Yuga. (with Illustration)
The Final Yuga: known in India as the Kali Yuga
Kali portrayed in Ancient Creation Myths (The Linga Purranas) as the Mother of Time and Mother of the Physical Universe.
Quotation: She Pronounces..
"I am Kali-Ma, it is I who has created all these worlds and I have a tendency to destroy them"
"Only death can bestow rebirth"
"Only annihilation can proceed complete renewal."
Description of Kali with all her symbolized attributes and characteristics.
The relationship of Kali to other mythic figures, Mithra, Shiva, Tara, Krishna, Vishnu. Kalki, and other creation mother goddess, Isis, Athena, Cybele and Sophia.
The concept of the twilight of the Yuga derived from the four-fold daily cycle: Dawn * Daylight - Twilight * Darkness
The relevance of "Twilight" to the condition of the modern world.
Review of The Complete Structure of the Yuga System:
The Kalpa = 10 Yugas. The duration, number and dates of Kalpa /Yuga system = Maha Yuga = 14 Kalpas / 140 Yugas
Above topics are all complimented with Diagrams of the complete Yuga Precessional System and Discussion of its possible meaning and ending
