Over the years one repeated criticism of my work has been about the emphasis that I have placed upon cosmology in my teaching and application of numerology. I am particularly saddened by the superficiality and ignorance of those calling themselves numerologists who have chosen to belabor this point.
I have many times spoken about and written about the massive influence upon my work from the book entitled The Cosmic Doctrine by Dion Fortune. It is said to have been channeled in 1923 from one who in a previous life time was a world famous philosopher. I have been candid in my opinion that the source could very well have been Pythagoras.
Around the mid to late 1980’s I read a popular science book called Superforce (The Search for the Grand Unified Theory of Nature) by British physicist Paul Davies. It was written in near layman’s terms and was a view of the current thinking of quantum physics and some astrophysics at the time. I was struck with the remarkable similarity in thought and structure between this earlier tome and the hot topic of the day. Although written in different vocabularies and from a different perspective, they mirrored each other to an extraordinary degree. AND, much of what was said in the former was virtually repeated in the latter.
Even in more recent years I have been watching the latest thoughts of cosmologists on the science channel. There were statements like, and cosmologists are just learning that……..!! Interestingly the “that” was more than once foreshadowed in The Cosmic Doctrine, and I found myself chuckling with the thought that,” oh, they finally figured that out”!
It was the contemplation and meditation upon the concepts presented in Doctrine that lifted me into a transpersonal soul journey I took through the cosmos around the same time in my life. I traveled back though time, space, wormholes, multiple dimensions and galactic creations to a moment of being radiated out in a primal burst of initial cosmic manifestation! I then journeyed again through galaxies and wormholes and passage through the planets of our solar system. Finally, I found myself back here on terra firma. It was like a living conformation of the Doctrine.
Through a somewhat esoteric and at times very abstract nomenclature The Cosmic Doctrine reveals a very simple and fundamental process of cosmic, galactic, systemic, planetary and human story of evolution. The reader is left with a better grasp of the basis of color, sound, the DNA strand, math and simple things like that. More important to students of the deeper wisdoms, perhaps, it provides insights to the cosmic and living dynamics of astrology, the Kabbalah, the I-Ching, tarot and NUMEROLOGY!
AND finally, most important to all of us, perhaps, is that it yields a very enlightened clue as to the origin and nature of the first circle (0) zero, along with the first tangant (straight line) or number 1. The initial makings of the great cosmic code!
I rest my case.
