No creature on the Earth can cross the glass ceiling! Everything that has happened has always happened here, is happening, and will continue to happen. This barrier cannot be overcome , neither by external nor internal intervention!
Above the planets is the Firmament or the Celestial Sphere, as it is most commonly used. Stars are holes in the Celestial Sphere, sort of like Pores (holes) in the cell nucleus. The stars enable the transfer of energy from the inside to out. The Celestial Sphere is the last layer that humanity can observe, beyond this is invisible to humanity unless certain conditions are met!
Inside the Celestial Sphere is the Primum Mobile (Prime Mover), also known as the Central Sun. The Central Sun is the heart/hearth of the Earth, the source of the fire that alchemists call the "Celestial Fire ".
(Related images: The Empyrean heaven is within the Primum Mobile.)
"According to Pernety, the purest grade of fire was the white Celestial Fire, or the fiery power of God’s will . He described it thus: “The Celestial Fire is very pure, simple and not burning in itself . It has for its sphere the ethereal region , when it makes itself known even to us. Celestial Fire shines without burning and is without color and odor, though it is sensibly exhaled. It is gentle and known only by its operations.”
The Central Sun is the source that gives shape to the entire material world, breathes life into all living things, radiates aether , and provides movement in the universe. It is also referred to as “The Sun Behind The Sun” in some places.

Within the Central Sun is the Empyrean heaven, the starting point of creation . I don’t know much about what’s going on in Empyrean. However, it is written that the fire that the alchemists call the "Central Fire " is located here.
Source The Concave Earth Hypothesis
THE CONCAVE EARTH HYPOTHESIS
This hypothesis was first conceptualised in the Cellular Cosmogony of Cyrus R Teed, founder of the Koreshan Religion/Society established in 1886. He stated that the Earth is concave (curving upward), thus we are on the inside of a hollow Sphere. All of the stars and planets are illusions due to refraction of curving light in the atmosphere, of which itself is illusory in the general appearance of its shape. Only one half of the sun radiates light, it rotates on an axis at the centre of the hollow cell, and we only ever see a focalised projection of it through multiple layers of the atmosphere.
Accordingly this cosmology was revealed to Teed during a visionary experience in which a female angel showed him the “true” nature of the cosmos, where the heavens revolve inside the hollow cell of the earth.
Astrology of the Cellular Cosmogony
1.1 Inversion Geometry:
In 1981 Mostafa Abdelkader an Egyptian mathematician from Alexandria, revived and expanded upon Karl E Neupert’s Geocosmos version of Cyrus’ Ideas, from the year 1900. Unlike Cyrus’ model which considers the heavenly bodies entirely as optical illusions, Neupert’s model inverts the entire known cosmos into the concave model, stating that space shrinks / implodes via non-euclidean geometry, so as to fit an entire Copernican cosmos (C) into the comparatively finite boundary-envelope of the Geocosmos’ (G) concave surface. In his paper that he submitted to the Australian science journal; Speculations in Science and Technology, in 1981 (which then gave a serious peer review of his full hypothesis in its 6th volume edition published in 1983), Abdelkader says:
“The enormous galaxies and other remote objects are mapped inside as microscopic objects, and our moon as by far the largest of the celestial objects, all of which revolve daily around the earth’s axis. Straight rays of light are mapped as arcs of circles, so that all celestial phenomena appear to inside observers in G just as they do to outside observers in C. We next consider the hypothesis that, conversely, our actual universe is this finite G." (This idea entails the inversion of all known geo/astro physics.)
The main addition to Neupert’s concept which Abdelkader addressed, is that light is eventually pulled toward the centre of the cosmos which shrinks inward. The arcs of light which travel toward the surface of the earth are absorbed, and those that are not continue travelling toward the centre of the cosmos as well as around it to the opposite side of the heavens than the sun. However they never illuminate the other side of the earth or its night sky because the wavelengths of light flow in accordance with the volume of space beyond the earth’s surface, and are also subject to the black-hole like inertia of the cosmoses infinitesimal centre. Thus as they converge toward the opposite position of the heavens to where the sun is, they are simultaneously pulled in toward the centre.
Therefore the light which circles round to the opposite side of the heavens, never meets the sight of those who have the centre of the cosmos between them and the sun. Therefore an observer on the surface will experience night without a luminous sky, even though rays of light are actually traversing the space they look out into, this being because the rays are only in space and thus are never received directly into the eye.
(for those FES forum explorers who are limited in English terminology, “Geology” is the study of the shape of the Earth, its properties and in some sense its relation to the rest of the cosmos. Hence the name Geocosmos as in this model the Earth is the boundary of the cosmos)
Abdelkader’s Concave Earth
Abdelkader devised an equation that suggests the phenomena belonging to the perception of the sky-dome and horizon line, are subject to optical illusion, supporting his statement that Light bends in wide arcs through space, rather than travelling in straight paths. As such when we believe we are looking at a luminous astrological object perpendicular to our line of sight, what we are seeing actually lies on the other end of a bent ray of light. Thus ones line of sight is really pointing at nothing, and their eyes are receiving an image of something that is at a position in the sky elsewhere to the direction they are truly looking.
This arcing nature of light therefore would attribute illusion to the perception of phenomena in the sky and space. However it is not just the light alone that produces this illusion, but also the magnetic field of the earth and gravity which causes the light to behave extraordinarily.
Double refraction and re-focalisiation of light was the explanation Teed offered for the sky-dome Illusion. Teed’s model however theorised a stationary sun with which he attributed the bizare notion that it were really a focalsied point of light emanating from a rotating luminous double helix at the centre of the cosmos. Abdelkader’s model on the other hand requires more elaboration as it entertains an orbiting sun rather than a stationary one.
1.2 The Mechanics of Gravity/Levity (Earth’s EMF) & The Propogation of Light
To fully comprehend the theory of how light behaves in the Geocosmos, one must entertain the notion that the Earth’s magnetic field and Gravity are really opposite polarities of the same unified force. This force compounds on itself through the envelope of the Geocosm i.e. the spherical area around the outside of the Geocosmos (within the crust.)
In other words Gravity or Centripetal force as Teed believed it to be, radiates out from the centre of the cosmos and through the earth’s concave crust where it then
folds/compresses against the inside of the concave earth’s outer boundary/envelope (below the crust) then, due to it being a continuously flowing force, it therefore flows back outward to the surface at double the frequency (as it has folded/compressed against itself) and becomes the Earth’s Levic electromagnetic field EMF.
How this concept of Gravity/Levity is relevant to the behaviour of light in the Geocosmos is that as the light reaches its resonant threshold of the EMF it begins to compress/slow down with friction causing an inverted compression of its wavelength within ratio to the Earths EMF.
A way to help visualise this is to take the example of a blown up rubber glove and how one can push the gloves fingers into the inside of the blown up glove provided the air pressure isn’t too high. However this analogy is only outlining the path of the light as in reality it is in constant flow, from both the sun, moon, planets, stars and any other astrological phenomena.
This means: that because one sees what’s on the other end of the arcing rays of light, and that the path of light is also folding back on itself against the Earth’s EMF, then focalising back down toward the earth before our eyes receive it, the optical information that our eyes receive of the EMF threshold/light resonance layer is therefore reversed. Similar to how the reflection of a spoon is upside down and slightly distorted depending on the angle one views it from.
This accounts for the unexplained phenomena (Dubbed the Moon Illusion) of why objects in the sky look larger on the horizon than they do directly overhead. It also explains why one instead sees the Sky-dome/horizon line as a concave dome-illusion rather than a convexly implied display of concentric atmosphere/void as one would expect it to appear.
Thus when one sees the sun cross below the horizon what it would actually be doing is moving up and around into the zone of the SP’s influence where the circular paths of light progressively get pulled into the SP and hence day becomes night. Abdelkader emphatically points out that both his and Einstein’s concepts of the properties of light are assumptions as no one has proven either view.
Substantial Evidence That Light Bends (video)
1.3 The Optical Illusion of the Earth Ball in Space:
In the October 1983 issue, Omni Magazine inquired with H.S.M. Coxter, a maths professor of the University of Toronto , as to whether or not there was any way to prove we aren’t living inside a hollow earth. Coxter responded saying he couldn’t think of any, and being an expert on inversion geometry went on to say:
“A rocket flight, an eclipse, a Foucault pendulum a Coriolis effect – any observation we can make on the outside of the earth has an exact duplicate version inside. There would be no way to tell which was the truth."
The article continued to relay: “Just as the geometry of space inverts, so do all the laws of physics. Toward the centre of a hollow Earth, light slows down and everything shrinks – atoms, astronauts, spaceships, and measuring rods. Light travels in circular paths, producing some weird (but lawful) optical effects. Astronauts on the moon looked back on what they thought was a blue sphere in the distance. Actually it was the inside of the earth’s shell, seen through sight lines that flared like the bell of a trumpet, producing the illusion of a sphere. The optical distortion is something like the wide angle view through a fish-eye lens”.
The German NASA astronaut & physicist - Werner Von Braun, speaks of this convex spherical illusion of our planet in the (inner) outer space of the concave Earth in one of his papers regarding optical illusions in space. He explains the process by which a “photograph of the Earth ball” (“Convex Earth”) occurs, a potentially illusory perception of which our arbitrary physical senses have lead us to believe.
2.1 Phases of the Moon and Lunar/Solar Eclipses
The Following was harvested from:Phases of the Moon and Lunar/Solar Eclipses
The sketch below shows a horizontal section through the geocosmos. One has to be aware, that in reality the earth envelopes a spherical space which means that any radiation goes in all directions. You can easily do that in your mind by making the drawing rotate around its vertical axis.
[This image is synonymous with the shape of a Torus Field]
The drawing shows the moon in its different phases. If the light hits the moon from the back, the side facing the earth is dark and we have a new moon. If the light hits the moon from the side we half a half moon. At a full moon it is radiated by light from all sides which then return to the celestial sphere.
The moon will reflect any light received back to the earth on certain curved paths, which have been shown earlier. This makes it possible that all the phases of the moon including the crescent can be seen.
Exactly opposite the sun is a funnel like night canal without any light, since it can not be reached by any light beams. Since all the curves of light are equally curved, the cross section of that canal is round. When the moon passes through it then we have a total lunar eclipse. If the moon only touches the canal a little, then we have a partial eclipse. The moon will then show a dark (light less) disk, which, according to the Copernican theory is interpreted as the shadow of the earth.
Usually the moon bypasses the night canal, since it does not orbit in the same plane as the sun, thus preventing a lunar eclipse and having a full moon instead. For the same reason we seldom see a solar eclipse. If the new moon would always pass in the direction of the sun, then we would have a solar eclipse any time we have a new moon. However, most the time the moon bypasses the sun so far north or south, that it does not cover the sun.
More details can be found in the book by Johannes Lang: “The Geocosmic Theory” (Not yet available in English.)
IT IS ASSUMED by those who profess to believe in and advocate the Copernican system of astronomy, that the earth is convex because it appears so from optical observation. A person standing upon a tower and looking out in every direction will see the vanishing point at an equal distance, and the horizon (the limit of geolinear vision) describes a circle around this center of observation. This fact in appearance is taken as an assumption of the earth’s convexity, because it is claimed that nothing but a globe would thus respond to and impress itself upon the organs of vision.
We maintain that an assumption predicated upon an optical illusion is not sufficient ground for the establishment of a rational conviction. If the earth were a perfectly flat surface extended illimitably, an observation from a tower looking out in every direction would assume, to the eye, the appearance of a circular horizon, for the simple reason that geolinear fore-shortening would provide for a vanishing point at a given distance from the observer, proportionate to the elevation of the point from which the observation is taken.
If a person will stand upon a railroad track equidistant between two rails, the rails will seem to approach each other in the distance, the apparent contact, or vanishing point, being proportioned to the
space between the rails and the height of observation… If they are five feet apart, the vanishing point is less than if they were six or seven feet apart.
Suppose we take a geolinear extense on the surface of the earth as one rail, and an imaginary line through the air as the other, placing the eye two and one half feet from the earth’s surface. Now, the same law obtains in looking parallel along this surface, as
in looking parallel to the rail and along its side. Making our observation by the side of the rail, the vanishing point is reached and the rail disappears, although extended in a straight line far beyond the vanishing point. The line over which observation is taken along the surface of the earth is the geolinear extense; it corresponds to the rail, and disappears by the same law; namely, that of foreshortening.
The phenomenon of the disappearance of a ship, hull first, as it recedes from view, is caused by the same law of foreshortening as that which governs the disappearance of the rail, or causes the two rails to appear to approach each other. If we should make calculations on the basis of the appearance instead of on the basis of the fact that the rails do not approach, but only seem to, we necessarily draw false conclusions. This is precisely what the astronomers do. They conclude from appearances rather than from facts.
A balloon six or seven miles distant, appearing about the size of a pin head, if it be sixty feet in diameter, occupies as much space in the distance as when near the subjective point of observation. The law by which the balloon appears to diminish in size as it recedes from view, is the same as that which produces geolinear foreshortening, or which makes the surface of the earth diminish longitudinally as extending from the point of observation.
This phenomenon belongs to the organ of vision, and cannot be comprehended only as we possess a correct knowledge of the laws and phenomena of optics. Owing to this fact, the student cannot comprehend the principles involved in the phenomena of optical appearances and illusion without a thorough comprehension of the principles and laws of optics.
In another part of this volume the reader will find a complete record of the mechanical apparatus and processes by which we have so absolutely demonstrated the concavity of the earth as to over-shadow the fallacious conclusions of the mountebanks,–Copernicus, et al, and their deluded followers.
[paragraph continues] We place a brief study of optics before the reader, merely to show wherein the fallacious conclusions of modern, so called science, while conflicting with the discovered and projected truth, are drawn not from facts but from appearances.
It might appear, as we proclaim the fact that a thorough knowledge of the Koreshan Cosmogony demands a thorough knowledge of optics, that it is our purpose to set forth a complete optical treatise preparatory to an understanding of the Koreshan Cosmogony. A thorough knowledge of Koreshanity must necessarily be a question of growth. A slight knowledge of the laws of optics will enable the student to see the discrepancies of modern astronomy, as predicated upon a misinterpretation of appearances.
What we behold through the organs of vision depends entirely upon the imprint of objectivities upon the retina of the eye. What we see is merely a picture placed upon the lining coat of the eyeball, and thence carried through the optic nerve, optic commissure, and optic tract, to that cortical area upon which the final function of vision depends.
We refer to a diagram setting forth some of the correlated facts of vision. The reader’s attention is again called to the explicit study of the effects of subjective impression, or the imprint or picturing of the objective world upon the retinal coat. (See retinal coat in Diagram 1, Plate 1, with the area b b as the film upon which the imprint is laid.)
The picture upon the retina includes whatsoever is embraced in the obtense between the two lines 1, 2, 3, 4; a a a is the optical axis, d is the point of the appearance of the ship when the hull vanishes, as it

recedes from view, as observed from the subjective x. The dotted lines indicate the appearance of the actual lines 1, 2, 3, 4, while d is the apparent position of the ship observed from x (the subjective point), and c, the ship as it actually is, viewed from its location in fact, not in appearance as at d. The perpendicular space 1, 1, implants the picture f h; the space 2, 2, implants the picture e g.
It will be noticed that the picture imprinted from 2, 2, at e g, is shorter than the one imprinted from 1, 1, at f h, proportionately as the distance from 1, 1, to 2, 2, in the objective. It follows that if a picture is imprinted from 3, 3, at b b, the ratio of shortening at b b will correspond to the imprints, 1, 1, and 2, 2. If lines were drawn from the points 4, 4 to the film b b through the focus at B, the subtense of the angle from 4, 4 to B would be so acute as to obliterate the space at the center of the film b b.
The point of obliteration at the film or retina, b b, corresponds to the vanishing point in the objective at d. At d the hull of the ship disappears, because there is no longer room for the picture upon the retina.
The lower line 1, 2, 3, 4 is the geolinear extense; the line upon the ground appearing at d, the vanishing point and the horizon. The upper line may represent a cloud covering the sky. The two points 4, 4, appear to join at d because of the distal foreshortening, which it must be remembered is merely the result of changes upon the retina, effected by distance. Any object beyond the ship c, as seen at d, will settle out of sight on the geolinear surface, proportionately to its distance beyond 4, 4.
By comparing the spaces w w with the spaces y y, it can readily be seen how the area of a given space
appears to shorten, and narrows itself upon the retinal coat. Now if we remove the upper line 1, 2, 3, 4 and open up the space above, an object at P may imprint itself upon the retina; but an object at Q could not be seen because it is below the ground surface, which, though it might extend a thousand miles in a straight line, can make no further imprint upon the retina because the space between the lower line 4 and d is the obliterated space, as affecting the retinal film.
We have presented some optical facts upon which depend the appearances upon which rest the fallacies of the Copernican system; facts, a want of the understanding of which places the so called scientists in the catalogue of the incompetents, which graces the contradictory systems of astronomy that arise spontaneously, subserve their purpose, and die the death of the fallacious in the various careers of mental transformation, as the human mind gropes its way in darkness.
Koreshan Universology Is Predicated Upon an Absolutely Demonstrated Premise; the World Face to Face with a Radical Astronomical Revolution
KORESHANITY is universal science applied to all the concerns of practical life, involving the science of immortal life in the body. It includes the science of religion, founded upon an accurate knowledge of the structure and function of the cosmic organism. It embraces every department and phase of form and function in the universe, and is therefore Universology. It is predicated upon an absolutely demonstrated premise, a geometric figure which embraces three simple elements–the arc, chord, and radius, practically applied to earth measurement by a process which determines the contour of the surface of the earth in which we dwell, and the direction of its curvation. This is not theoretical, but applied geometry. This contour is found to be an upward instead of a downward curve, and thus it is diametrically opposite to the assumed convexity of the earth’s surface. The world is therefore face to face with a radical astronomical revolution.
The earth is a concave sphere, the ratio of curvation
being eight inches to the mile, thus giving a diameter of eight thousand, and a corresponding circumference of about twenty-five thousand miles. This fact is physically and mechanically demonstrated by placing a perpendicular post at any point on the surface of the earth, (though it were better to place it by the side of a surface of water,) and extending a straight line at right angles from this perpendicular. The line thus extended will strike the surface at any distance proportionate to the height of the vertical post.
“Hypothesis, or guesswork, indeed, lies at the foundation of all scientific knowledge,” says the Standard Dictionary, quoting from Fiske’s “Unseen World,” page 3. The term science is derived from scire, to know; hence, science is the Latin term for knowledge. Science means knowledge, nothing more, nothing less. That which is founded upon hypothesis (assumption) is not science, nor should it be dignified by that title. The Copernican system of astronomy has its foundation in assumption,–this is conceded by all so called scientific astronomers. The Copernican system has never been demonstrated, therefore it is not scientific.
What does Koreshanity offer as a substitute for the gigantic fallacy and farce of the benighted Copernicus? First, it offers the fact that in experiments carefully made by the Koreshan Geodetic Staff at Naples, on the Gulf coast of Florida, the contour of the earth was proven to be diametrically the reverse of what is taught as true in the pseudo-science of modern times.
The surface of the earth is not convex. It appears
to be so because of optical illusion. The only geodetic survey ever made for the purpose of determining whether the surface on which we dwell is convex or concave, was made by the Geodetic Staff of the Koreshan Unity in the year 1897. In this survey was corroborated conclusively the testimony given in 1870, that the earth is a hollow shell about eight thousand miles in diameter, and about twenty-five thousand miles in circumference.
The alchemico-organic (physical) world or universe is a shell composed of seven metallic, five mineral, and five geologic strata, with an inner habitable surface of land and water. This inner surface, as the reader already understands, is concave. The seven metallic layers or laminæ are the seven noble metals,–gold constituting the outermost rind of the shell. This shell or crust is a number of miles in thickness.
Within this shell are three principal atmospheres, the first or outermost (the one in which we exist) being composed chiefly of oxygen and nitrogen; the one immediately above that is pure hydrogen, and the one above the hydrogen atmosphere we have denominated aboron. Within this is the solar electromagnetic atmosphere, the nucleus of which is the stellar center. In and occupying these atmospheres are the sun and stars, also the reflections called the planets and the moon.
The planets are mercurial disci moving by electromagnetic impulse between the metallic laminæ or planes of the concave shell. They are seen through penetrable rays, ultra electro-magnetic, reflected or
bent back in their impingement on spheres of substance regularly graduated as the stories in the heavens.
In the foregoing is presented a descriptive outline merely, of the alchemico-organo-cosmic form. It is not assumptive. Neither is it intended, in this synopsis, to prove the Koreshan Universology; the proofs and demonstrations of the System will be found in subsequent pages of this work.
We have already outlined the general principles of form. We here insert this axiom: Form is a fundamental property of existence; therefore, that which has no form has no existence. Limitation is a property of form. The universe has existence; therefore it has form, hence it has limitation. While the above axiom partakes somewhat of the syllogistic method, it will be noticed that the objectionable feature of the syllogism is expunged; namely, the premise is not an assumption.
Motion obtains in everything throughout cosmic form. Nothing exists without motion. The atoms of the rock are constantly changing place with all other atoms. There is circulation in the bar of steel. The angular crystal atoms of the diamond are in motion, and in their circulation and impingement they generate electro-magnetic substance of the most delicate attenuation. All these circulations are regular and according to the fixed laws of order; therefore, while form exists according to definite principles of form, the laws of motion conform to and determine the principles and arrangement of organic relation and shape.
The cause of alchemico-organic motion is remote and proximate. Before defining the laws and principles of motion, we will here briefly state that within the alchemico-organic world (cosmos) there resides the anthropostic or corresponding cosmos. These are two discrete spheres, yet they are co-ordinately one. The alchemico-organic cosmos (the physical world, the outline of which is given in preceding pages) is in the form of man; that is, in the egg or shell–man in the state of un-incubation.
The mass of humanity is in the same state, with this modification; the alchemico-organic cosmos is in space, and is therefore persistent; while its anthropostic co-ordinate embodies principles which merely correspond to space, and are not persistent in any one form. For instance: The seven metallic laminæ or plates comprising the general metallic rind of the macrocosmic shell are perpetual. These are the seven limitations of essences radiating from the stellar nucleus primarily, and from the solar limbus as the environment of the stellar nucleus. They constitute the deposit extremities of the seven essences, or the seven alchemico-organic spirits of radiation. The geologic strata through which the essences radiate are the conditions of chaos penetrated by the essences before they reach their extremities of metallic deposition and order.
The stellar nucleus is the center of space; the metallic laminæ are at the circumference of space. Correspondentially in humanity, the Lord Christ was the stellar Center, and his quality was the correspondent, in anthropostic being, of space in the
alchemico-organic cosmos. In the progress of time in its relation to the development and progress of the race, the seven churches yet to be formulated into groups are the anthropostic depositions corresponding to the seven metallic plates. The seven churches are seven qualities of human characteristics and correspond to the seven planets, and therefore to the seven primary substratic laminæ of the cosmic crust.
By the remote cause of motion is meant the cause primary to the electro-magnetic substance created at and radiating from the stellar nucleus, antithetically generated at the circumference of the shell and converging to the nucleus. The cellular cosmos, or the great cosmic egg previously described, constitutes a great electro-magnetic battery which is purely physical, or, as denominated in Koreshan Science, alchemico-organic. The sun and stars are focalizations of physical spirit-substance, merging into matter materialized through voluminous and high-tension convergence.
There are at these centers constant concretion and sublimation. Spirit-substance is constantly materializing, and the temporary materialization is as rapidly changed to spirit-substance and is radiated. There is, therefore, a reciprocal interchange of substance from center and circumference. The spirit-substances engendered at the nucleus are radiated to the circumference, and are there solidified. At the circumference the surplus solidification is reduced again to spirit-substance and flows to the nucleus.
As there are seven metallic laminæ in the prime circumference, so there are seven prime metallic kinds of essence flowing toward and into the stellar nucleus.
[paragraph continues] As these influxes are of seven distinct characteristic vibrations, so the nucleus has seven distinct degrees of essence, all meeting at one focal point in space, there turning back upon themselves and flowing out or radiating to the circumference and depositing at the environments of the cosmos. From the mineral laminæ, geologic strata, and water surface of the universal rind, there is also a corresponding and co-ordinate inflow or convergence to the stellar nucleus.
However, we find in this great universal battery, in its electro-magnetic power, but the proximate cause of its activity and form. Thus far there is no conscious and voluntary spirit-substance. Associated in co-operative being with this alchemico-organic cosmos is another half, endowed with voluntary and involuntary consciousness, co-existent and co-eternal. This voluntary and involuntary conscious existence, the acme of whose life is in the human brain, while prior and positive as to the momentum of this duplex cosmic structure, is only coincident as to its perpetuity. Neither existed prior to the other in the timic aspect of their co-ordination.
The proximate cause, then, of all the motions of the alchemico-organic cosmos is electro-magnetic substance produced reciprocally at the center and circumference of the great alchemico-organic battery, by the destruction of matter; for let it be reiterated and remembered, that spirit-substance is the result of the destruction of matter as matter; and that matter is the result of the destruction of spirit-substance as such. In other words, an atom of matter is the materialization of physical spirit-substance, and this substance is the dematerialization of matter. Both matter
and spirit are substance. It will thus be seen that spirit-substance is not therefore a mere mode of motion or of vibration, but in reality is something in motion.
We have hinted only, in a general way, at the proximate cause of the activities in the alchemico-organic cosmos. The term remote cause is here employed as being a cause remote from the electromagnetic essences upon which immediately depend the form, motions, and phenomena of the cosmic structure outlined in the foregoing. We are now to consider the very central and primary cause of all motion. This cause is mental. Not only is it mental, but it is voluntary and of the will.
There are two cosmic fields of form and function belonging to discrete degrees, but yet co-ordinate and interdependent. These are the alchemico-organic and the organo-vital. The first and lower is that which embraces the world as the earth, with the stars, sun, planets, atmosphere, etc.; the other, the higher, is the vegetable, animal, human, angelic, and God kingdoms. They are both co-eternal; neither existed before the other. The organo-vital is prior as to quality, and prior also as to its positive power to create and perpetuate.
The alchemico-organic field centers in the astral nucleus as the positive pole of its electro-magnetic essence; the organo-vital centers in the divine Man, the bright and morning Star, whence originate the voluntary redemptive will and creative power. The Lord Jesus is the representative nucleus of the regenerated manhood. The Lord Christ at the time of his manifestation was the center of the anthropostic
universe, the source of being, the point and origin of creative power.
“He is the image of the invisible God, the first-born of every creature: for by him were all things created that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: and he is before all things, and by the all things consist; and is the head of the body, the church.” (Col. i:15-18.)
There can be but one question regarding the above Scriptural declaration. Is it true? It is concise; sweeping, inclusive, conclusive, and lucid. Is the Lord Jesus the Christ of God what he declares himself to be, and what inspired men have declared him? Is he the Son of God? And does He embody, as the primary offspring of Deity, all the attributes of the parent? And more than this; in His development from men as the Son of man, did he absorb into himself the principles, attributes, life, form, and consciousness of the parent?
We hold that the Lord, as was declared of him, was the fulness of the Godhead bodily,–Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; and further, that when the Lord was visibly manifest to the outer world, his inner and spiritual life was visible to the spiritual world as the astro-biological center of that sphere, and beside him there was no God.
How could the Lord, being born an infant into the natural world only at the beginning of the age, be the cause of all things? The Lord was not only the reincarnation of Elijah (God the Lord), of Moses, of Abraham, of Noah, of Enoch, and of Adam, in a direct
line, but of all who died looking to his coming as the Messiah and Son of God in the indirect lines of reincarnation. He gathered into himself the spirits of the past. He was also the pole of influx from the heavenly worlds, and constituted the rolling together of the heavens as a scroll. He was the Word infolded and sealed. “Him hath God the Father sealed.”
Twenty-four thousand years before the beginning of the Christian age, conditions in the world were the same as then. God was manifest in the flesh, and the Lord of the Christian era was identical with the Adamic personality in the beginning of the 24,000-year cycle. The end and beginning of every grand Zodiacal cycle bring into visible and personal manifestation the Son of God, who is Father, Mother, and Son.
He, the Lord, was the individual or undivided man. He held within himself the Bride, for “He who hath the bride is the bridegroom.” He was the biune, the two-in-one, the parent of himself, and also of the Sons of God. As the parent of Himself, High Father, he was Abram; as the Father of the Sons of God, he was and is Abraham. He being the very primate cause of all things, and possessing both the voluntary and involuntary power of creative being, it is seen that the cause of all things resides in voluntary mental substance, supplemented by the involuntary reflex of voluntary mental activity.
When the ordinary “scientist” alludes to the precession of the equinoxes, he has reference merely to the sun’s precessional movement; but every planet passes through a corresponding precession. The sun’s precessional year is 24,000 years long. The precessional
years of the planets are correspondingly longer, proportioned to the difference in their ordinary years. These precessional years constitute cycles of time that are definite and recurrent, and proportionate to the great complex, solar, lunar, planetary, and stellar precessions.
The movements in the alchemic-organic sphere have an astro-biological correspondence. The signs in the physical heavens mark definitely the manifestations which correspond to them in the astro-biologic field. Every 24,000 years there is a similar personal manifestation as the one constituting the beginning of the Christian era. Every 24,000 years there is such a manifestation as is now about to occur.
We are now approaching a great biologic conflagration. Thousands of people will dematerialize, through a biologic electro-magnetic vibration. This will be brought about through the direction of one mind, the only one who has a knowledge of the law of this bio-alchemical transmutation.
The change will be accomplished through the formation of a biological battery, the laws of which are known only to one man. This man is Elijah the Prophet, ordained of God, the Shepherd of the Gentiles. and the central reincarnation of the ages. From this conflagration will spring the Sons of God, the biune offspring of the Lord Jesus, the Christ and Son of God.
When a man (the man) so understands the laws of life as to know their application, and through obedience to law overcomes the sensual tendencies of, his nature, he reaches the point of biologic absorptions The visible and tangible dematerializes, and the outer
consciousness enters into unity and blends with the inner and spiritual. The visible man consumes and thus enters, by transabsorption, into the unity of the invisible Godhead, and, by descent, into the church prepared to receive the precipitate afflatus.
In the process of the dissolution of the visible structure, by which the matter of the tangible organism is dissolved, consumed, and reduced to spiritual substance called the Holy Spirit,–the substances (oxygen, hydrogen, nitrogen, carbon, sulphur, phosphorus, fluorine, chlorine, sodium, calcium, potassium, magnesium, cuprum, aluminum, iron, etc.) contained in the organic structure, together with the atmosphere and the free physical spirit-substances of space, enter the vortex of vibration, which consumes the body.
The consciousness of the man entering thus into the whirlpool of organic dissolution is not obliterated, but infolds by conjunctive unity with the central and interior mind, around which the outer consciousness had wrapped itself. This interior mind constitutes the very central consciousness of Deity, the heart of the anthro-biologic cosmos. Radiating from this afferent absorption, the gravic spirit in its efferent distribution baptizes such minds as are prepared to receive the divine overshadowing, called the Holy Spirit.
Every overshadowing of the primary seven successive baptisms proceeds directly, not from an invisible “oversoul,” but from the tangible personality. The Holy Spirit shed upon the world (the church) in the beginning of the age, proceeded from the visible Lord in his conversion from matter to spirit. If the Lord
had not been personal, there could not have obtained the dissolution of his body and its conversion to Holy Spirit; and therefore the afflatus (the “oversoul”) could not have obtained.
But the vortical involution, the anthropostic, took place in alchemico-organic (physical) space; therefore it involved the material elements not included in the organo-vital structure, and the vibrations were communicated to the elements and essences of the alchemico-organic cosmos, converging toward and into the stellar nucleus of the alchemico-organic world, and radiating to its circumferences.
It is thus that the conscious mental nucleus of the anthropostic imparts momentum to the activities of what has been denominated the physical universe. The impulse ceases to be mental substance as soon as the influence of correlation has mutated the vibration of mental substance to the vibration of alchemico-organic (physical) motion.
We do not employ the term vibration as it is usually employed in common psychical or physical “science;” with us, vibration signifies not merely motion imparted to atoms or essences, but the dissolving of molecules and atoms, and their conversion to spirit-substance in the various degrees, and vice versa. It is thus observed that a reciprocal relation exists between the anthro-biologic (organo-vital) and the alchemico-organic worlds, and that the electromagnetic essences active in the latter are the result of a continuous, primary, voluntary mental essence generated in the human mind, dependent on the material basis (brains); these two co-ordinate fields of operation being co-eternal.
There are seven primary, movable, mercurial disci floating between the metallic plates or laminæ. The momentum is imparted through the operation of the actinic radiations from the astral nucleus, projected through the solar influence. These radiations penetrate the geologic, mineral, and metallic strata.
As the sun radiates its substance in the form of a cone, the apex of which is at the solar center, and the base at the metallic strata, the impression made upon the strata is in the form of a circular area. There is an impression of the alternate influence of caloric and cruosic substance, the one expansile, the other contractile. This movement follows the rotation of solar motion, therefore there is necessarily a peristaltic or vermicular motion imparted to the metallic plates or laminæ.
The alternate action of the actinic radiations of calorine and cruosine produces discular vacui between the plates, which are filled with mercurial amalgam. These act as reflectors, throwing back into the heavens the forms of the disci against the atmospheres, so that in looking toward the heavens we behold these disci through the operation of the laws of reflection, and are thus enabled to comprehend how the Lord “spreadeth out the heavens . . . as a molten looking-glass.”
A knowledge of the structural form and function of the alchemico-organic (physical) cosmos is the key to our knowledge of the principles which must govern the organization of society in the culminating kingdom of righteousness. The importance of a knowledge of
universal form and function, as pertaining to the alchemico-organic cosmos, will be admitted when the mind is sufficiently amplified to comprehend the relationship of the alchemico-organic macrocosm to the organo-vital macrocosm (the Grand Man), as pertaining to and comprising the universal mass of human existence.
The individual (undivided) man (such a man was the Lord) is the archetype of creation. What He was in the least form, the alchemico-organic world is in its greatest form; and what he was in that form, so also is the final Theocratic Kingdom in the earth, namely, in the form and function of the man. Therefore, we discover that the true interpretation of the alchemico-organic cosmos is the revelation of the mysteries of Deity; for as the outward and most material structure is but the expressed thought of the voluntary and involuntary mental cause producing it, so a knowledge of this expressed and manifest language reveals the history of human origin and destiny.
