EsoBites: Understanding the Higher Law of the Triangle
Deep Rosicrucian Analyses Series

Today, we will direct our attention to the esoteric law of the triangle, as such law is often misunderstood by practitioners. The reason for such confusion being that many groups mistakenly believe that the law of the triangle (a planar, or two-dimensional, figure) concerns the interaction of an active, bestowing, causal force with a passive, receiving, causal force so to produce a resultant effect.
For instance, the coming into existence of a new child. During sexual intercourse, the father, as bestower, provides to the mother, as receiver, an innoculate of semen containing spermatocytes (his set of chromosomes). If fertilization is successful, one spermatocyte enters through the cell member of the mother’s ovum (her set of chromosomes) allowing the ovum to convert into a zygote (a developing cell with the proper number of human chromosomes). This zygote develops stepwise from zygote to embryo to fetus to newborn or neonate.
Using a two-dimensional representation, the first point is the father, the second point is the mother, and the third point is the newborn. However, using a two-dimensional representation, or triangle, for the process of formation of a zygote inserts two causal forces with the resultant manifestation of an effective zygote, into the same possibility phase space. It is somewhat like combining an apple with an orange in mathematics and trying to retain the same labels.
Both sperm and ova contain only half the number of chromosomes (23) required to function as somatic cells (46). So it is not difficult to understand that the combining of two gametes to produce a somatic cell requires the addition of another dimension of phase space. Another dimension is required as the future possibilities of a zygote are imaginably greater than for either gamete. Left to themselves, both spermatocyte and ovum will die is fertilization fail.
Moreover, the process of fertilization, as is true with all other observable processes, requires three balanced and interacting forces, or causes, in order to produce a new resultant. In addition to bestowing and receiving, a third, concentering or unifying, force is mandatory. The concentering force is what allows the spermatocyte to successfully combine so to regenerate a full set of chromosomes. Such third force representing multiple factors, competition between spermatocytes for the ovum, the physicochemical properties of the fluid in the fallopian tubes, the receptivity of the endometrial toward the zygote, and so one.
Therefore, the true esoteric law of the triangle shows the natures of three necessary forces, or causes, required to produce a different resultant. Subsequently, to show the relationship between the triangle and the resultant, we must draw our figure in three dimensional phase spaces. Doing such, we see that the proper geometric representation for showing the ‘richer’ resultant and the three forces is a tetrahedron.
In other words, our triangle must contain a central point which we do not observe unless we allow such point to be projected perpendicularly to the two axes necessary for a triangle. How far, the silent, central point must be projected is proportional to the ‘richness of phenotypic possibilities’ available to the resultant zygote.
I would suggest thinking about other situations and how three forces must interact so to produce a new resultant. The law is universal.
So, the true esoteric law is known as the Law of the Tetrahedron, or the Law of Triangular Forces and the Hidden Center.
