And isn’t it coincidental that the 4 states of matter correspond with the 4 elements.
Solid is the element of “earth.”
liquid corresponds to the element of “water.”
Gas corresponds of course to the element of “air.”
And plasma corresponds to the element of “fire.”
This was a form of ancient science!
The ancients recognized (in all cultures) this fourness,whether it was the four directions (north,south,east and west) and four seasons,four corners of the earth (more about that in a later blog). But they all had their symbols of the four.
Another example…the “lotus flower” is an eastern symbol of the four elements also.
Why a lotus flower?
Well…..a lotus flower has its roots in the EARTH.
it grows through WATER.
out into the AIR.
and looks toward the sun……FIRE. (Giving us the four elements again)
So in yet another culture,the symbol the lotus flower is a symbol of the four elements.
Here’s something to ponder on though,the human spine is referred to as a lotus flower in occult literature
(Here’s a clue….a lotus flower starts in the earth!)
If you google for yourself the connection between esoteric information and this knowledge of the 4 elements,your search should supply you with enough information that this is well known to esoteric societies.
I would like to stress that I want you to look for yourself and verify that these are hidden teachings now coming to the light,with information now at our fingertips.
We can find out and link things in seconds which would have taken years in times past.
In previous times,if you could even read a book,finding another on a similar subject,would have been a difficult task.
Joining the dots would have been almost impossible.And to see the patterns in other cultures signifying the same concepts in their own particular manner,would be out of the reach of most.
However,we are now in the information age,that can help us grasp the patterns.And once you recognize the patterns,you will start noticing these things everywhere.
There is also a “fourness” in things in nature,such as the four seasons,as mentioned before.
But let’s look a little closer at the four seasons.
Two of the seasons are male or projecting out.
These would be spring/summer,where growth happens on the earth.There is an abundance of light and warmth.The light rules the world during these two seasons.
And two female seasons are a “drawing in.” The Autumn and Winter are dark and cold.There is no growth,In fact things start falling apart,i.e the leaves fall from the trees.Darkness now has the upper hand,and rules over the light.
It’s like a breathing out in spring and summer.
Then a breathing in,in autumn/winter.
(And think now why people think the female brought the male to ruin in the Adam and Eve story and all should start to link).
So out of the four elements,two are male,and two are female!
Air and fire are male,and earth and water female.
What about chemistry? Well again it has the “fourness,” this time called “CHON”
Magnets have a male and female side…the two poles or polarities.
In your electric plug there is a male and female wire…positive/negative.
In atoms,the proton is male and electron female.
In the interaction between positive and negative we see how nature gets things done.
(this is the real meaning of the Song of Solomon.It’s describing the male and female forces of nature,the active and passive,the positive and negative forces).
Light (positive) and darkness (negative) and the interplay between them in nature.
In freemasonry,it’s the symbol of the compass and square.
The compass represents the male and the square represents the female.
And when the two come together…things happen!
Generation happens,the sexual orgasm brings life to the barren “earth” of the female,the egg is fertilized and a new generation comes about through this most holy act….hence the letter “G” in the middle of the male and female.
Do you notice that the compass is like the active male on top and the square like the receptive/passive female in sexual union?
The positive and the negative,the day and the night,the light and the dark come together and sparks fly.
It’s nature and how it works.The ancients weren’t stupid,they understood these forces,and symbolized and pictured them in their own way,according to their own particular culture that is part of the 360 degree spectrum that exists throughout all the earth.
Secret societies have kept this knowledge hidden from the masses (or as they call them ……the profane.)
Not out of malice,because with knowledge comes responsibility.
The profane are those not in the know,they are outside the temple of knowledge.
Harry Potter calls such ones “muggles” but it is the same thing.
“Jews” are those in the know and “Gentiles” are those outside the temple in the courtyard…hence the “court of the gentiles.
