Continuing with the line of thought initiated in the previous post with its backdrop being The Work of Gurdjieff and Ouspensky, I want to look at the 'Ray of Creation' model explored in the books Tertium Organum and In Search of the Miraculous which consists of a seven-tiered plan from 'The Absolute' down to the 'Moon' (quote starting on page 79, towards the end of Chapter 4 through the beginning of Chapter 5 of ISOTM).
Although lengthy it serves as an essential basis for certain forthcoming explorations and extrapolations. The 'Seven Rays' is a concept within many systems, most notably that of Theosophical literature of Helena Blavatsky, Alice Bailey and their disciples. One lesser-known figure whose work I have found to be superb and quite complementary to 'The Work' of Gurdjieff and Ouspensky is Vera Stanley Alder (29 October 1898 – 26 May 1984), who also utilizes a seven-fold system throughout her seven occult books.

The Qabalah of Nine Chambers is a form of 'Chain' of the Absolute itself with its notable correspondences as of late found to me to be expressed via:
111 = THE SADHAKA, THE AWAKENED, MANY 'I', A BUDDHIC LAMA, THE ABHOTH ('The Source of Uncleanliness', residing in the cavern of Y'quaa beneath Mt. Voormithadreth. It is a horrid, dark gray protean mass and is said to be the source of all miscreation and abomination. See Colin Wilson's The Mind Parasites.)
222 = THE STUDENTS, INDICATION, THE LAW OF ACCIDENT, MAGICK QABALAH,
333 = THE BEING LADDER, MECHANICALNESS, AUTOMATIC SYSTEM, DYNAMICAL SYSTEM, ARCHIMEDES, A HIGHER MIND
444 = THE DRIVER, PRAGMATISM, THE COSMOS IS ALIVE, NUMERICAL LANGUAGE
555 = THE MASTER MASON, MASONIC RITUALS, OCCULT CORPUS, ESOTERIC KNOWLEDGE, THE SPIRIT OF MAN, TRANSCENDENT MIND, TRANSCENDENTAL EGO, SILENT TEACHINGS, ACTUATION
666 = THE VIOLATION, THE CHAINS OF THE ABSOLUTE, CABALISTIC SCIENCE, EVERY ACT IS A MAGICAL ACT, INTELLIGENCES, DISCRETION, MAGNETIC ENERGY CENTER, A MECHANICAL CONSCIOUSNESS, SOURCE CODE
777 = THE ESOTERIC, TIBETANS, A MECHANICAL MAN HAS NO PSYCHOLOGY (See page 1205 of Psychological Commentaries on the Teaching of Gurdjieff and Ouspensky, Volume 3 by Maurice Nicoll.), THE MASS PSYCHOLOGY OF FASCISM, ORGONE ACCUMULATOR, SEGMENTAL ARMORING, BIO-ELECTRICITY
888 = MOLECULAR STRUCTURE, THE SEVEN ARMOR SEGMENTS (See Character Analysis by Wilhelm Reich (1933) as well as Reich and Gurdjieff: Sexuality and the Evolution of Consciousness by David Brahinsky (2011)), SEX-GNOSIS
999 = FULLY ENLIGHTENED MAN, A BODILESS CONSCIOUSNESS, THE BIO-PLASMA FIELD, THE SUBTLE BODY, TANTRIC ZEN, TIBETAN TULKUS, TIBETAN BUDDHIST LAMAISM, EVERYDAY EXPERIENCES, MAGICKAL OPERATION, SANCTUM SANCTORUM
[Note the relation of the Theosophical concept of 'Chains' and Alfred Korzybski's concept of 'Time-Binding', particularly in relation to The Qabalah of Nine Chambers.'
This sequence is of great depth and interconnection, and it should be noted that the value in it comes through the interlinking not of numerical and letter values, but the meanings and essences concealed. That these phrases and terms enumerate to the TRIPLICITS that they do is not the point, the point is that their component parts seem to coherently formulate according not to numeric-letter value, but on the underlying and inherent meaning or value. The CYMATICS of THE GEOMETRY OF WORDS is thus an expression of the BROKEN SHELLS of the OVLM H'QLIPhVTh in that words are 'shells', or vehicles, as is sound, of a current which transcends the physical speech, letter or sonic/air modulations, utilizing as it were, an inadequate tool in order to convey just enough to hint at or indicate through analogy what we mean or wish to convey. Words, and thoughts of things themselves, are secondhand simulations of the original things, and in terms of empirical data, the data itself after being filtered through our limited biased perceptions, and still more filtered and altered for mass-publication. Some things are simply already too obscure to be any better understood by further simplification, we must ourselves do the work of looking outside our own self-induced blindness, but this seems to be like asking for a miracle for most of humanity.

Many of these inklings of subjects are discussed much more extensively in the books of the authors so far mentioned, many of which I can link to online versions of, though many I have had to obtain physically on my own and can only encourage others to do as well as it would be too much additional work to scan each of them, though one day this needs to be done. Instead, I have chosen to try and condense certain keys which I have extracted in the course of my own reading and working so as to try and add new points of contact between the subject matter(s) at hand and the potential reader and whatever they may be questing for. The root MOTIVATION is always indicative of the state of ones character, and being 666 it represents one's MAGNETIC ENERGY CENTER of Solar Power and its orientation. The thesis of Alder's first book The Finding of The Third Eye is based on the idea that many ancient systems essentially teach certain underlying truths, and she begins to develop her own form of what can be called THE SCIENCE OF SPIRITUALITY over the course of her next five books, with her seventh being an autobiography.
The Finding of the Third Eye was prefaced by Alice Bailey, and reprints of her books are sold on the Lucis Trust webstore - however her style of writing was much more refined for general readers and did not reference The Secret Doctrine, or very many books at all for that matter, although it is referenced in the bibliography. Blavatsky and Bailey's work was surely an influence on her, but perhaps in the more positive sense that she greatly simplified things while the writing styles of the former tended toward complexity and too numerous of references. I have yet to read her autobiography From the Mundane to the Magnificent, but a fascinating discussion of it is presented on the MU (Mysterious Universe) podcast episode 16:19. The central focus is her astral adventures with a 'Hidden Master' named Raphael as he showed her the infinite expanse as well as the atomic-within in separate journeys which when described have an air of similarity, at least in essence, to the 'Orders of Being' described by Ouspensky as quoted above.
The Enneagram that is used by both Gurdjieff and Ouspensky (as well as others, Oscar Ichazo, Helen Palmer, Richard Rohr, etc.; see also The Holy Mountain by Alejandro Jodorowsky.) has a number of points of relation to the above considerations when its attributes are considered. The Ennegram consists of a Circle with 9 points, three of which form a Triangle numbered 3-6-9, a key sequence noted by Nikola Tesla: "If you only knew the magnificence of the 3, 6 and 9, then you would have a key to the universe." 9, which is obviously composed of 3 x 3, shows that the 9 sequence of which our number spectrum is composed is based on triplicits. The other numbers 1-4-2-8-5-7 are themselves found in the repeating decimal of 1/7, as well as in the Pi approximation of 22/7 = 3.142857... The Enneagram thus contains in geometric, pictorial form a reference to the Law of Three as well as the Law of Seven. Again, the 3 and the 7 are denoted on the Tree of Life as the Supernal Triad and the Ruach which emanates therefrom. (Note also 142 + 857 = 999, and the Greek ENNEA, 'Nine' = 111.)
369 has already been considered in this publication before, however I will briefly reitterate that it is the numeration of the Greek Sophia, 'Wisdom', as well as SPIRIT and THE MATRIX. Thus, 369 represents the Wisdom of The Matrix of Spirit and its dynamics. 369 is noted by Kenneth Grant to be of a lunar nature, being as it is the summation of the series [1 – (9 x 9)] ÷ 9, and also ChShMVDAI, the 'Spirit of the Moon' (See Liber 777, pg. 19). The lunar sephirah, Yesod, is known as the Foundation since it acts as the plasma energy of manifestation prior to its crystallized state in Malkuth/Materiality. (Note CRYSTALLIZED = 369 as well, showing the SPIRIT crystallized in form.) It should also be noted that 1 more than 369 is 370, the value of the Hebrew OSh, 'Creation'. Crowley also notes in Liber 207 that Liber 370, or Liber A'ash vel Capricorni Pneumatici "Contains the true secret of all practical magick."
370 happens to also be the value of the Greek Ολος, 'All'/'Whole'/'Perfect', Οικος, 'House', Ο Οπλον, 'The Weapon'/'Tool', Ο Σπαθι, 'The Sword', Η Παπα, 'The Pope'/'Priest', and Κοιος, 'Coeus' the Titan god of intelligence and farsight. He was also identified as the god of wisdom and heavenly oracles. Coeus was also known as the Pillar of the north pole from which the constellations revolved and therefore, controlled the axis between Heaven and Earth. Together with his other three brothers Crius, Hyperion and Iapetus, they presided as the Pillars of holding Heaven and Earth apart. He was one of six sons of Uranus and Gaea and is mentioned by Apollodorus as one of the five brothers, all but Oceanus, who participated in rebellion against Uranus and later attacked him. When they overcame him, the four brothers probably held him down, while Cronus castrated him. 370 is also notably the value of the Hebrew ShLM, 'Shalom', or 'Salem', (Peace/Health) of which Melchizedek was priest. These correspondences indicate the Fire (Shin, 300) of of BEING (70) - or BEINGS in general - as well as the ETERNAL BEING with its infinitude of TYPES OF BEINGS. Note also that 666 - 370 = 296, hence 'MATERIAL BEINGS' = 666.
THE SCIENCE OF SPIRITUALITY mentioned above in regard to Vera Alder's literary approaches can be greatly enhanced with these Qabalistic practices and insights I have illustrated when put into understanding use. The Inner Work described by Gurdjieff and Ouspensky can also help to become more aware of one's inner MAGNETIC ENERGY CENTER (THE SOUL WITHIN) and the reorientation thereof to more personal and collective beneficial aims. The DIRECTIONS of our MOTIVATION determines our personal and collective result, and much Inner Work is necessary for the average person to first become aware and then begin to guide their energy. 666 being representative of the Solar Energy current itself is an obvious hint toward what I am trying to convey. 666 is the number of PARASITES who are attracted to and feed off of this energy, and many a LIFE-ENERGY VAMPIRE need not be 'supernatural' (=888) at all, in fact much of our civilization is geared on the basis of siphoning off maximal energy from the populace in any number of ways. The Biblical connotations of 666 being related to the MARKET of 'buying, selling, and trading' also seems vindicated when you consider its numerous connections to Money, Power and various strata of energy. Note 666 denotes A FORM OF ENERGY, either in its base ELECTRIC form, or the refined CONSCIOUS LIFE-ENERGY. When you combine the two approaches you have a type of SPIRITUAL TECHNOLOGY.
THE SECRETS OF THE ATOMIC AGE are contained in seed-form within the Qabalah of Nine Chambers, although a basic wisdom and understanding of the Qabalah and its principle teachings is necessary in order to activate practical access to its contents. THE FUTURE KNOWLEDGE (=444) of Science and Technology will be better attained and maintained with a functional awareness of our ancient and recent past and its natural unfoldment. Crowley wasn't the first and only Adept to attempt fusing the 'methods of Science' and the 'aims of Religion', and both fields can be greatly supplemented when balanced together however there is and has been a confluence of conflicts and campaigns creating endless compartmentalization. There is value in syncretism and synthesis, but there is also great value in distinction and uniqueness, so it is important not to conceptually blend things into confusion, however in the greater scheme of things all things already are resolved into The White Light of the Monad - it is their outward facing manifestation (the 'going around the buoy of Malkuth' in the sense used by Dion Fortune ) and expression that is of essential value.
444, referred to above, has particular relevance in my mind to the Work of Vera Stanley Alder. Her first book being The Finding of the Third Eye in particular stands out considering the entheogenic molecule known as DMT [Daleth=4 + Mem=40 + Tau=400], or Dimethyltryptamine, is mystically related to the Third Eye Chakra or Pineal Gland, known under many names (Epiphysis Cerebri, Parietal Eye, Bindu, Ajna, etc.) and in other forms (Pine Cone, Egg, THE CADUCEUS, Turoe stone, Shiva lingam, Yoni egg).
444 represents the Door from the 3-DIMENSIONAL (333) harmonic to that of 'FOURTH DENSITY' (444) where the PSYCHOLOGICAL TIME (=444) of THE DRIVER opens a higher RESONANCE beyond the MECHANICALNESS (=333) of the ENGINERY and AUTOMATIC SYSTEM of ANIMAL INSTINCT, which even the plane of THE EMOTIONS is governed and controlled through TRAINING. The Holonic Tensegrity of the Gematria of The Qabalah of Nine Chambers delineates a fourth and fifth-dimensional level of relativity - fourth in that it operates/functions through spatiality and temporality, and fifth in that the spatio- (3) temporal (4) constraints are plasmatically molded by the quantal 'fifth-state' of quantum information ('THE AKASHIC RECORDS') which is really the re-integrated Diamond-Ray or Vajra.
The first three dimensions correspond to the dynamo that is the Supernal Triad which radiates the Cube of Space, a model corresponding to the Tree of Life 'before the fall' wherein the One that is Kether is one with Malkuth which is numbered 10, i.e. the 1 prismatically crystallized into manifestation as the 'I' (Yod=10, the letter said to have been the basis for all creation.) Compare Arthur Koestler's concept of the Holon and Holarchy (see Janus: A Summing Up (1978), and The Ghost in the Machine (1967)) as well as Buckminster Fuller's Tensegrity, Ephemeralization, and Dymaxion (Dy-namic, Ma-ximum, Ten-sion) concepts with those of Ouspensky's highlighted above, and what Vera Stanley Alder says of the Seven Rays and their integral functions.
It should be noted that 'THE DRIVER' is a psychological term obviously referring to the I-awareness, and PSYCHOLOGICAL TIME is a term which loosely refers to the varying states and 'speeds' of cognition. The 333-444 connection further relates to the psychology of the third-eye and the fourth-dimensional doorway being as they are 'THE DREAM-TIME' (333) and 'THE R.E.M. SLEEP' (444), the former being indicative of the MECHANICALNESS of the INCARNATED (=333=) I-DREAMING-I and related in essence/numerically to Saturn (3), the latter being related to Chesed (4) the SEPHIROTH of the cross(-ing) of the Abyss / Daath / Space-Time (OUTER SPACE). 444 represents an amplification of astral energy from the Past-Present-Future / X-Y-Z / Length-Width-Height / 333 (=) LEVEL OF KUNDALINI (as the Astral Light/Ain Soph Aur/Azoth, etc. are analogous to the Kundalini itself.) Seeing as how the first three dimensions are purely abstract spatial extensions from an abstract point, and time is yet another non-physical plane of extension of temporal movements within spatiality the data that radiates or emanates therein would be thus considered 'Fifth Dimensional'. Higher dimensions than 5 would imply a meta-geometric abstraction outside of an N-DIMENSION (999) quantum system, i.e. outside of the 'BUBBLES' (=107) or Eggs of the 0 'Ring-Pass-Not' 'Zero-Point', or Through the H Door (the fifth dimensional akashic/plasma field which subsists space-time/spirit-matter.)
In the course of writing this post, as is usual when processing and parsing these various streams of data, I happened to find that the phrase 'I FOUND MY THIRD EYE' = 444, which is a sort of pun on the title of Vera Alder's book The Finding of the Third Eye. The third eye represents the marriage of opposites and its effectual Understanding, and is particularly related to the concept known as Sivadarsana, or the Vision of Shiva and as well as the Vision of Pan. (Note that when one imbibes a PURE DMT EXTRACT (=666=) of DMT CRYSTALS such an Ordeal is had immediately, and numerous psychic veils are dissolved for what is temporarily/objectively about 10-15 minutes (except in the case of Ayahuasca which can last hours), but what subjectively seems like an eternity. Having experienced this myself countless times I personally relate the experience it conveys to be particularly resonant with the Buddhist teachings of the DHARMAKAYA, the highest/purest of the Three Bodies. Note that its value is 283, which is also that of THE PINEAL GLAND, the DMT CHAKRA. There is an audio-visual form of The Dharmakaya Sutra by Tozen (in 4 parts) which conveys the Buddha-Dharma which I highly recommend, despite it being auto-read.
The teachings of The Dharmakaya Sutra connect very much with the concepts discussed in recent posts known as Vipassana, or 'Clear Seeing' and Vajrayana, 'The Diamond Vehicle'/'The Diamond Way'. THE PATH OF THE VAJRAYANA BODHISATTVA is said to be one of the most expedient of Paths of of Enlightenment, and it seems to be particularly relevant to the subjects of Geometric Emergence, General Semantics, Synergetics, and other related yet distant concepts. VAJRAYANA CLEARS SIGHT for the apprehension of THE CLEAR LIGHT OF THE CONCEALED TAO (symbolized by THE CIRCLE.) THE GREAT VAJRADHARA, or Possessor of the Thunderbolt also carries the natural value of 666, the Solar ELECTRIC Current which when accessed can provide A NIRVANIC FREEDOM to the SORROWS of MATERIAL BEINGS' (=) SOUL CYCLE OF SAMSARA. 666 is not merely Solar, it is more aptly considered as Stellar, of or relating to the Stars. (Note ASTER, 'Star' = 666.) Thus 666 represents THE HIDDEN STAR & THE LIGHT THAT IS NOT which is the 'Fourth Way' out of 3-DIMENSIONAL MECHANICALNESS of the 333/Past-Present-Future/XYZ and Doorway of the Fifth Dimensional SOURCE-CODE of QUANTUM HYPERSPACE.
Outwardly magnetized, or INCARNATED (=333= 'RECEIVE THE TAO') 666 becomes 999, the number which itself also contains in seed-form the TIBETAN BUDDHISM / TIBETAN BUDDHIST LAMAISM of the TIBETAN TULKUS. . 999 also enumerates TANTRIC ZEN, the 'Method' or 'Technique' of Zen, 'Totality'/'Togetherness of Body and Mind'. 999, being THE SECRET SCIENCE OF TAO, literally enumerates THE THREE MARKS OF EXISTENCE OF THE BUDDHA, which are Impermanence (anicca), Unsatisfactoriness/Suffering (dukkha) and Non-Self (anatta) and parallels in THE THREE MARKS + ANICCA + DUKKHA + ANATTA = 999, showing THE ALIGNMENT of these concepts which transmit perfectly THE HIGHER POWER of The Tao.
