Symbol 5
Cosmic Unconsciousness

A Summary Explanation of Symbol No. 5 - Cosmic Unconsciousness

Knowing oneself in depth is necessary in order to attain a true experience and perception of the absolute truth about life. The cosmic analysis of the living being is in itself the solution to the mystery of life. The unfinished human being is, however, almost completely ignorant or cosmically unconscious of its true and absolute, spiritual or cosmic analysis.

The main details of the symbol:

  • The question marks indicate that the human being’s ignorance will lead to questions about its eternal or immortal, cosmic nature.
  • The coloured, misty areas around the black circular area symbolise its six different principal layers of consciousness:
      red - instinct
      orange - gravity
      yellow - feeling
      green - intelligence
      blue - intuition
      light indigo - memory

  • When these layers of consciousness are mixed with one another in a random and nebulous fashion, it is to symbolise that the unfinished human being is familiar with these mental phenomena but does not yet know how they are organised in its own mentality or psyche.
  • The orange circle symbolises the being’s physical body. The rays and the cross indicate its invisible, eternal, spiritual structure.
