Odd and Even Consciousness

2 years, 6 months ago

I just had this idea. It seems no matter what level of awareness I’m at, no matter what I’m “vibrating” or how much information I am intaking/processing/outputting, there are two main tones of me. One is wanting more, feeling like I’m missing something and struggling to fill the hole, and the other is feeling free and whole and complete, expressing myself rather than searching for something.

So I was looking at this star-shaped mandala thing and realized, when you have a “star” shape, and the number of bangles is even, what you have is one point pointing to the heavens and one pointing to earth, or hell, or whatever is down. The divine feminine and masculine in balance. When you have an odd-numbered one, there is always an imbalance, a dominant aspect, it is always pointing down or up and seems to want to take action order to fulfill itself.

I have heard of these “star” shapes (for lack of the correct term) referring to states or qualities of consciousness (see Adam Apollo’s Unified Harmonic Matrix, it’s badass) and it struck me that there may be something to this oddness or evenness, that we may be able to correlate our current states to one or the other at any point in time. Perhaps we alternate between the two in order to grow, climbing some sort of numerical-style ladder into god-knows-what.

Maybe an even number symbolizes a union of the two brain hemispheres, a certain “peace of mind” that we can rest in, before forging into new territory. So, it might look like this: Walk into a room in a calm, balanced state. See pretty girl, brain desynchronizes, hands flutter. regain composure, attempt to speak. Conversation ensues, she’s down-to-earth and you hit it off, brain-mind-body-being state back to normal. Maybe you were sad and now you’re happy, and you went from six through seven into eight, just to throw some numbers out there.

Any thoughts?

@season, This is exactly what I needed! I think you hit the nail on the head with this one :)
The more I think about it, the more sense it makes. If we lived in a state of perpetual happiness, we would be very, well, happy with ourselves and our surroundings. Content with everything around us, we would have no reason to change anything or progress at all. However, once you insert an unknown variable into the equation, suddenly there is conflict, and you need to resolve that conflict and prevent it from happening again. I think this experience is called learning. And once we learn, we use the knowledge from the past experience to better ourselves in the future.

This makes for a very cyclical pattern in human behavior. Start in low emotions, overcome an obstacle, learn, move to high emotions, face obstacle, stop, move to low emotions, etc.

I could easily see how this pattern could apply to EVERYTHING. From thought patterns, to the rise and fall of nations. I feel as though I’m missing something though!

@urbanuncia, Glad you liked it man. I see a lot of old ideas being perpetuated by the new-agers and not a lot of new idea brewing going on. There’s no reason we can’t have our own insights even after thousands of years.

Any idea as to what the missing thing might be?

@season, Do we need to break free of this cycle? Maybe adopt a Fibonacci sequence where we multiply exponentially instead of one at a time?

I’m wondering if we can’t have that “peace of mind” all the time
