AUTHOR’S NOTE: Whenever, I use the words ‘particle’ or ‘wave’ to describe a material or amaterial fundamental quantum, it is important to realized that such use is merely for convenience or history. My current model of the Totality recognizes that at a most fundamental level, neither particles nor waves exist–they are simply observational descriptors using classical terms. This is contrary to normal quantum mechanics, but is more accurate. All is geometry and naught more. But, you must wait to a later book to learn more. Sorry.
In the next World, Briah, Nous differentiates into its two primary components: the fundamental vibratory modes of the ten dimensional Metric comprised of urmaterions of the material world (modeled currently by leptons, quarks and gauge bosons), the atons of the mental world, the hapions, the vitalizing and animating energies of life associated with the air we breathe, the ptahons or conscious energies of life associated with the formation of the higher being bodies, and the philtrum or principle of love joining the passive and active.3
Similar to the several subclasses of fundamental particles, the urmaterions, each category of atonic particle is postulated to be divided into even smaller modes, corresponding to the active, receptive and reconciling forces of the triad of creation. For urmaterions, leptons and quarks are composed of level I, II and III particles: leptons are subdivided into electrons / electron-neutrino, muons / muon-neutrinos and tau / tau-neutrinos; quarks are subdivided into up / down, strange / charm and top / bottom.
Analogously, hapions, named after the life-giving god of the Nile River, are divided into an inseminating particle, amum, a receptive particle, mut, and a joining particle, khonsu; named in honor of the Theben Divine Trinity of the 18th Dynasty of Egypt, father, mother and son.
Ptahons, named after the gods of the Memphite Trilogy of the 1st Dynasty of Egypt founded near modern day Cairo by the Uniter of the Two Lands, Menes or Narmer, are divided into an animating particle, ptah, a receptive particle, sekhmet, a joining particle, nefertem.
In the sixth World, Yetzirah, material creation can begin since this is the subatomic world of the quantum, this is the hidden world of virtual particles. Involution, or the ‘Outpouring of Brahma’, stops when the material world, Assiah, is formed. Evolution, or the Inbreaths of Brahma, can now begin.
To gain a detailed appreciation for how the Ray of Creation for our universe manifests thru Divine Decree, it is recommended that the reader study and meditate upon Figure 15.
One question which has been of interest to both ancient and modern metaphysicians concerns the relative durations of the involutionary (the creative outpouring of the Demiurge, the lightening flash of creation, the emanations of the elohim, the Outbreaths of Brahma) and evolutionary (the refinement of the fine from the gross, climbing Jacob’s Ladder, the Inbreaths of Brahma) phases of the creation. The occidentally-based esoteric schools teach involution was completed within a near-instantaneous moment of time, evolution requires many eons of time. The orientally-based esoteric schools teach that the objective time period provided for a complete cycle of manifest creation is many billions of years. Moreover, like the near equal periods of the two phases of the human breath (actually measurement shows a 3:2 ratio of exhalation to inhalation), involution and evolution are of equal length.4
Even with the birth of modern cosmological thought, it remains impossible to decide between the two ancient views of Creation. Modern cosmological research has found ample, evidence demonstrating that the universe began as a primitive, fireball (i.e., the cosmic, microwave background) supporting the occidentally-based version of creation. The time period for involution (the expansion phase) required no more time than what was required for the initial differentiation of the four fundamental physical forces (gravity, strong and weak nuclear forces, and EM), the Planck moment of 10**-43 seconds. After the Planck moment, evolution began with elementary particle formation, beginning with the X-bosons and progressing into the quarks, leptons and gauge bosons forming today’s chemical elements. The maximum time period available for evolution remains undecided, having occupied at least 15 billions years to date.
While modern cosmology has been helpful in deciding between two ancient, ontological viewpoints of this particular ‘ray of creation’, its opinion concerning whether creation is a unitary or recurrent phenomenon, i.e., is the universe cyclic, is still out. Cosmologists are currently unable to decide whether the expansion rate of the universe is more or less than the critical escape velocity for infinite expansion. It is also undecided upon whether sufficient mass exists to allow gravity to eventually overcome the expansion forces (i.e., do neutrinos have a positive ‘rest mass’ or is enough dark matter present). All that quantum theory suggests that if the universe manifests in cycles, each cycle of expansion and contraction must be larger than the previous one because of residual radiation pressure.5
