Now that we have made our geometric, linguistic, symbolic and philosophical journey back to the very beginning of the birth of the universe bycracking pi, we can now come to understand the birth story ofthe universe of youusing the very same concepts, mathematics and symbolism. Embryology is the science of the development of an embryo from the fertilization of the ovum to the foetus stage and as we will see, this multi-layered story of cracking pi is reflected in this story of human reproduction. By calculating the gematria for the wordsEighty Six, the number we found withinThe Great Pyramid of Giza,Circumference / Diameter, as well as theThree Point One Four Twoof pi, we find the number46. The human being is constructed using46chromosomes.
In the act of procreation, in the first stage of embryology, both man and woman contribute23chromosomes. A chromosome is a single piece of coiled DNA containing the genetic information for human development. When the father’s sperm enters the mother’s egg, the two unite into the conception of one child, making a total of46chromosomes, with46being once againTHE VERY FIRST OCCULTED OR HIDDEN NUMBER WITHINour all-important number86.
In order to understand how the creation of you reflects the cracking of our primordial pi, we must have a general understanding of the process of human reproduction.
The reproductive process goes generally like this: At a certain point in a woman’s menstrual cycle (a cycle intimately linked to the waxing and waning cycles of the moon) the woman’s hormones trigger her body to produce and release one egg from either the mother’s right or left ovary, a process called ovulation.We will be equating this egg to our initial sphere or primordial egg of creation. This egg drops from theovariesinto heruterusthrough a canal called herfallopiantubes. It is in this window of time that a woman may become pregnant. Man and woman unite through the act of sexual intercourse and the man ejaculates his sperm into the vagina of the woman. After the sperm fuses with the egg during fertilization, a new organism begins developing known as thezygote. The human sperm cell is known as ahaploid, a term meaning that its23chromosomes can join the23chromosomes of the female egg to form adiploidcell. Thehaploidnumber is the number of chromosomes in agameteof an individual. Agamete(From the ancient Greekgametesmeaning“husband”andgametemeaning“wife“) is a cell that fuses with another cell during fertilization / conception. The female produces the larger type of gamete—called an ovum or egg (or symbolically,our primordial egg)—and the male produces the smaller serpentine tadpole type—called a sperm. Male sperm cells contain one of two types of sex chromosomes. They are eitherXorYchromosomes while the female egg contains only theXwith the sperm cell determining the sex of an individual. If a sperm cell containing anXchromosome fertilizes an egg, the resulting zygote will beXXor female and if the sperm cell contains aYchromosome, then the resultingzygotewill beXYor male. There are two types of chromosomes,sex chromosomesthat determine gender andautosomeswhich contain the rest of the hereditary information. Once fertilization is complete, the chromosomes of the female are denoted by the lettersXXand the male denoted by the lettersXY.
When they merge, a child begins to develop through a process of cell division calledmeiosis. The first cell splits into two more cells, and those split again, and yet again, eventually forming the human being within the womb. The termembryorefers to the sphere of dividing cells from the moment thezygoteimplants itself in the uterus wall until the end of the eighth week after conception. Beyond the eighth week after conception (tenth week of pregnancy), the developing human is then called afoetus. This entire universal story of birth lasts for roughly nine months, segmented intotrimesters, or three months each, in which afterwardsa newchildis born.
Since we already know the ending of our story, and that is, of course,the birth of the universe of you,let’s take a journey through the reproductive system to find out just exactly how this divine universal reflection of the great spirit called the human being came into existence.
GRABBING THE BULL BY THE HORNS
Before we move on to look at the mathematics, symbolism and gematria of this process, let’s first look at the female reproductive system symbolically. It is interesting to note that the shape of a woman’s reproductive area and the head of a bull are strikingly similar in appearance.
There are many references to bull worship throughout religions worldwide. The nameElhas long been associated with the name of the bull God in many languages (Hebrew, Greek and Egyptian) and is a suffix and prefix found within many names of saints, disciples and divine characters:GabriEL, MichaEL, RaphaEL, SamuEL,AngEL. Bull or calf worship is prevalent in Hindu, Egyptian, Grecian, Minoan, Roman and biblical religious art and architecture, to name but a few. This bull was often depicted with the sphere or egg of creation nestled between its horns.
Astro-theology, or more widely known asastrology, is the subject of study that laid the foundation for nearly all of the religious mythologies of the world and it is here where we the see the golden calf most prominently referenced, in the constellationTaurus, theBull.
In ancient religions, star worship was directly related to the universe of man and man was in turn a reflection of the firmament of stars above, an idea known as theanthropocosm. The constellations above were mapped onto the human body below, as man was but a reflection of the creative power of the heavenly spheres and lights of our night sky.
Considering that the ancients deemed the stars and constellations of our zodiac to be mirroring the temple of man, it is quite pertinent to point out the linguistic similarities ofUTERUSandTAURUSas well asOVARIESandARIESwithin the female reproductive system.Ariesis the Ram constellation and the zodiacal sign that is attributed to
enlightenment, most notably referenced with Jesus Christ being theLamb of God. The sun rises in the constellation of Aries during spring. It is at this time in which the sun crosses, orpasses-overthe equator, aroundEaster, signifying the blooming of a new year and therebirthof life (ancient Roman calendars began their year in March). Passing Aries on its annual path, the sun then makes its journey through the constellation Taurus, the Bull. It is during this time of year when life is renewed and the earthsprings up from the depths and death of winter and the sun makes its long crawl up to the Tropic of Cancer. The correlation we may make to the womb where thehuman mothergivesbirth(theovariesand theuterus) and the season in which therebirthof life occurs onmother Earth(or the zodiacal signs ofAriesand theTaurus) is most fitting. If man is indeed a reflection of the first moment of creation and, as the ancients believed, a reflection of the heavens above as well, these correlations within the words of human anatomy and the stars above should come as no surprise to anyone who is well versed in esoteric or occult lore. Only those with a willingness to consider deeply the nature of such parallels will recognize the true ingeniousness of the ancients who once walked this Earth. On the zodiacal makeup of man the constellationArieswas assigned to theheadandTauruswas assigned to theneckand isn’t it quite interesting that the first things that emerge from the womb or vagina in laboris theheadandneckof the baby.
In light of the above there seems little doubt that in general and in the present astronomical context in particular, Spira Solaris qualifies to be described numerically as "the One and the Many," the "One and the All," "the Alpha and the Omega," and also (from The Chaldean Oracles): "Fountain of Fountains, and of All Fountains, The Matrix of all Things." ..... Pythagoras said the sacred Tetractys is: ` the spring having the roots of ever-flowing nature.' .... The four parts of the Decad, this perfect number, are called number, monad, power and cube. And the interweavings and minglings of these in the origin of growth are what naturally completes nascent number; for when a power of a power; and a cube is multiplied on a cube, it is the power of a cube; and when a cube is multiplied on a cube, the cube of a cube; thus all numbers, from which arise the genesis of what arises, are seven: number, monad, power, cube, power of a power, power of a cube, and cube of a cube. ..... We have seen that the whole nature of things, all the essential properties of physis, were believed by the Pythagoreans to be contained in the tetractys of the decad; and it now appears that, just as we should expect, this ' fountain of ever-flowing nature' contains the periodic movement of life, evolving out of unity and reverting to unity again, in the recurrent revolution of a wheel of birth. It embodies the fundamental Dionysiac representation of palingenesia. But there is something more in it than this. Pythagoras inherited the music of Orpheus, as well as the reincarnation doctrine of Dionysus. From the Orphics he inherited also the doctrine of the fall of the soul from its first perfect state of union with the divine, its degradation into the darkness of this life and of the underworld, and its final restoration to peace and unity. Now, on the model of this doctrine of the fall of the soul, the Pythagorean philosophy must hold that all existence proceeds out of the One and returns to it again; and that the One alone is perfect, while the manifold world of visible body is a turbid medium of appearance, in which the one truth is half-revealed and half-concealed, as the divine soul is manifest in the flesh and yet obscured by it and degraded. There is thus, inherent in the representation handed down from Orphism to Pythagoras, not only the primitive wheel of birth, but another aspect of the movement of life, which is best described as a processional movement out of unity into plurality, out of light into darkness. This movement, also, must be revealed in the nature of numbers, and contained in the tetractys. Pythagoras found it in the procession of numerical series, the study of which he originated, thereby rounding the science of number. It is practically certain, also, that in music he discovered the ratios of the octave, the fifth, and the fourth, contained in the harmonic proportion 12: 8: 6. Now a progression like those contained in the tetractys of Plato's worldsoul --the series, 1: 2: 4: 8, 1: 3: 9: 27– is what the Pythagoreans called an harmonia; it is a continuous entity knit together by a principle of unity running through it, namely the logos or ratio (1/2 or 1/3) which links every term to its predecessor by the same bond. Both series, moreover, radiate from the One, which in Pythagorean arithmetic was not itself a number, but the source in which the whole nature of all numbers was gathered up and implicit. When we note, further, that every number is not only a many, but also one number, we can see how Pythagoras would find the whole movement of cosmic evolution contained in the procession of series, in which the One passes out of itself into a manifold, yet without losing all its unity, and a return from the many to the One is secured by that bond of proportion which runs, backwards and forwards, through the whole series and links it into a ' harmony.' It is thus that we must understand the doctrine that ' the whole Heaven is harmony and number.' The processional movement of physis is modelled upon that of soul, which falls from its first state of union with the divine, but yet remains linked to the One life by mysterious bonds, and can return to it again, purified by music. ...... As for the "geometric figure", that we may already have (whether applicable here or not) and although the concept of "organic motion" may strike some modern readers as strange, it is nevertheless an underlying feature in many ancient major works--the Timaeus of Plato especially. Here it may also be observed that by expressing the exponents of this short section of the Phi-series planetary framework in thirds, the sets [3, 6, 9 , [4, 8, 12] and [6, 12, 18] are also apparent--sets that may or may not be considered further with respect to other passages in Plato, etc. ...... It is in the same fashion that the Timaeus also tries to give a physical account of how the soul moves its body; the soul, it is there said, is in movement, and so owing to their mutual implication moves the body also. After compounding the soul-substance out of the elements and dividing it in accordance with the harmonic numbers, in order that it may possess a connate sensibility for 'harmony' and that the whole may move in movements well attuned, the Demiurge bent the straight line into a circle; this single circle he divided into two circles united at two common points; one of these he subdivided into seven circles. All this implies that the movements of the soul are identified with the local movements of the heavens. (Aristotle, On the Soul) ...... Mind is the monad, science or knowledge the dyad (because it goes undeviatingly from one point to another), opinion the number of the plane, sensation the number of the solid; the numbers are by him expressly identified with the Forms themselves or principles, and are formed out of the elements; now things are apprehended either by mind or science or opinion or sensation, and these same numbers are the Forms of things. Some thinkers, accepting both premises, viz. that the soul is both originative of movement and cognitive, have compounded it of both and declared the soul to be a self-moving number. (Aristotle, On the Soul) ...... Thus that in the soul which is called mind (by mind I mean that whereby the soul thinks and judges) is, before it thinks, not actually any real thing. For this reason it cannot reasonably be regarded as blended with the body: if so, it would acquire some quality, e.g. warmth or cold, or even have an organ like the sensitive faculty: as it is, it has none. It was a good idea to call the soul 'the place of forms', though (1) this description holds only of the intellective soul, and (2) even this is the forms only potentially, not actually. (Aristotle, On the Soul) ..... there will be a need for several sciences. The first and most important of them is likewise that which treats of pure numbers--not numbers concreted in bodies, but the whole generation of the series of odd and even, and the effects which it contributes to the nature of things. When all this has been mastered, next in order comes what is called by the very ludicrous name mensuration, but is really a manifest assimilation to one another of numbers which are naturally dissimilar, effected by reference to areas. Now to a man who can comprehend this, it will be plain that this is no mere feat of human skill, but a miracle of God's contrivance. Next, numbers raised to the third power and thus presenting an analogy with three-dimensional things. Here again he assimilates the dissimilar by a second science, which those who hit on the discovery have named stereometry [the gauging of solids], a device of God's contriving which breeds amazement in those who fix their gaze on it and consider how universal nature molds form and type by the constant revolution of potency and its converse about the double in the various progressions. The first example of this ratio of the double in the advancing number series is that of 1 to 2; double of this is the ratio of their second powers [ 4 ], and double of this again the advance to the solid and tangible, as we proceed from 1 to 8 [ 1, 2, 2^2, 2^3]; the advance to a mean of the double, that mean which is equidistant from lesser and greater term [the arithmetical], or the other mean [the harmonic] which exceeds the one term and is itself exceeded by the other by the same fraction of the respective terms--these ratios of 3 : 2 and 4 : 3 will be found as means between 6 and 2: why, in the potency of the mean between these terms [ 6 x 2 ], with its double sense, we have a gift from the blessed choir of the Muses to which mankind owes the boon of the play of consonance and measure, with all they contribute to rhythm and melody. So much, then, for our program as a whole. But to crown it all, we must go on to the generation of things divine, the fairest and most heavenly spectacle God has vouchsafed to the eye of man. And: believe me, no man will ever behold that spectacle without the studies we have described, and so be able to boast that he has won it by an easy route. Moreover, in all our sessions for study we are to relate the single fact to its species; there are questions to be asked and erroneous theses to be refuted. We may truly say that this is ever the prime test, and the best a man can have; as for tests that profess to be such but are not, there is no labor so fruitlessly thrown away as that spent on them. We must also grasp the accuracy of the periodic times and the precision with which they complete the various celestial motions, and this is where a believer in our doctrine that soul is both older and more divine than body will appreciate the beauty and justice of the saying that ' all things are full of gods ' and that we have never been left unheeded by the forgetfulness or carelessness of the higher powers. There is one observation to be made about all such matters. If a man grasps the several questions aright, the benefit accruing to him who thus learns his lesson in the proper way is great indeed; if he cannot, 'twill ever be the better course to call on God. Now the proper way is this--so much explanation is unavoidable. To the man who pursues his studies in the proper way, all geometric constructions, all systems of numbers, all duly constituted melodic progressions, the single ordered scheme of all celestial revolutions, should disclose themselves, and disclose themselves they will, if, as I say, a man pursues his studies aright with his mind's eye fixed on their single end. As such a man reflects, he will receive the revelation of a single bond of natural interconnection between all these problems. If such matters are handled in any other spirit, a man, as I am saying, will need to invoke his luck. We may rest assured that without these qualifications the happy will not make their appearance in any society; this is the method, this the pabulum, these the studies demanded; hard or easy, this is the road we must tread.
