Click for Three Bodies Diagram Description
We are told in our work that all things are the result of three forces. We can see these forces in a Food Diagram (see P.D. Ouspensky’s The Fourth Way, Chapter Nine; or my book Cosmic Secrets, Chapter Five). You will see that three forces–configured in an 8, 10, and 12 ratio–are required for the octave of the 8 to complete itself.
So, get a Food Diagram and let us explore this knowledge.
Life began on Earth with the introduction of the first octave—the octave of the 8. We shall call that octave the Physical Octave, or Physical Force. That octave sounded a DO as matter began to organize, almost like a crystallization stage. At first, combinations of amino acids began to link up in random order, but it was not until DNA was created that this newly forming matter could continue its existence. DNA became the first moment of Self-Remembering in the Universe. The Physical Force attained RE, had successfully come into existence, and remembered how it did it. We could say that the attainment of RE is really the beginning of an octave since it results from the filling of an “Intentionally Actualized Mdnel-In”. Something finally established itself, which in the Physical Octave meant that Physical matter had become sensitive. Sensations connected the Physical Force with the physical world around it.
From this stage the Physical Octave acquires, as a result of sensation, a personality side. A side we call movement. Movement is a response to sensation. Eventually the instinctive center gives birth to movement and the note MI in the Physical Octave is attained.
This is as far as the Physical Octave can go. It has reached its Mechano Coinciding Mdnel-In, and it cannot evolve further by the process of Harnel Miaznel alone. It is at this point, at the note MI, where an assisting octave–the octave of the 10–or shock octave must enter. But what is this assisting octave?
Let us suppose that this assisting octave is the Astral or Kesdjan Octave. Like the Physical octave, it enters as a DO–where the Physical Octave is at MI. This Astral Octave must also go through a process of organization or crystallization in order for it to come into existence at its note RE. At this point the Astral Octave has attained its instinctive center and the Astral Force begins to sense its existence in the astral world. However, the attainment of the note RE in the Astral Octave is congruent with the note FA of the Physical Octave. This means that the sensing of the Astral Octave is perceived by the Physical Octave as “Emotions”.
The Astral Octave’s RE also acquires a personality side and gives birth to Astral movement—at the note MI in the Astral Octave. The note MI in the Astral Octave is aligned with the note SO in the Physical Octave; or Astral Movement is synonymous with Intelligence.
At this point the Astral Octave has reached its Mechano coinsiding Mdnel-In, which corresponds with the note SO in the Physical Octave and cannot evolve further without additional help coming from outside.
You guessed it, The Highest Being-Body or Mental Octave enters as the 12, at the note SO of the Physical Octave. It too, goes through the process of organization or crystallization and comes into existence at its note RE (RE of the Mental Octave corresponds with the FA of the Astral Octave and the LA of the Physical Octave). The Mental Octave begins to sense its existence; the Astral Octave perceives these “instincts of the Mental Octave” as Astral Emotions; and the Physical Octave perceives them as conscience, or Higher Emotions, or the awakening of Steward, or self-consciousness.
The Mental Octave can progress further and acquire its own personality side, which for it is its Moving Center (MI); for the Astral Octave its Intellectual Center (SO); and for the Physical Octave its Higher Mental Center (TI).
If a man does objective work, then all three bodies will come into existence in him, and he will be able to withstand the shock of death. This, of course, requires an inner force at the point where the Mental Octave reaches MI–its Mechano coinsiding Mdnel-In; and the Physical Octave, TI–its Intentionally Actualized Mdnel-In. If all three bodies are crystallized up to TI of the Physical Octave, the Physical Octave enters its Intentionally Actualized Mdnel-In and this momentum will carry it past DO where it can now crystallize into RE–the instinctive aspect of the Spiritual octave beyond.
Now we can see why Man is depicted as a three-story factory. He has three levels of instinct, three levels of perception, three levels of sensation. Physical body sensing, Astral body sensing, and Mental body sensing.
We are constrained to experience these three levels of sensation through the Physical body’s perception; and call them Instinct, Emotion, and Conscience.
These three levels of sensation give rise to three acquired movements, which again are perceived through the Physical body as Movement, Intelligence, and Objective Reason.
That’s it. I hope you found it as insightful and stimulating as we have. If not, you must only be Physically sensing; if you were Astral sensing, you would have felt the importance of this knowledge; and if you were Mental sensing, you would have understood it.
