Symbol 94
The Being's Two Polar States

A summary explanation of symbol no. 94 – The Being's Two Polar States

The symbol shows the structure of the terrestrial human being's consciousness.

The upper pole, which is latent in the animal, has developed somewhat. We see that intelligence (green) has been added to the structure of consciousness. The intelligence is the first thing that is developed in the being's transformation towards the double-poled state. The being can multiply its animal tendencies and acquire a lot of egoistic satisfaction through this intelligence. Feeling (yellow) has also developed somewhat. But the faculty of humaneness or love cannot arise as quickly as intelligence evolves, since it cannot be developed through teaching but arises through painful experience. The faculty of compassion is increasingly developed in the being.

Martinus' own explanation of the symbol can be found in The Eternal World Picture, vol. 6, which is not yet available in English.
