Symbol 7
The Principle of Life Units

A Summary Explanation of Symbol No. 7 - The Principle of Life Units

The universe is an infinite unit comprising an all-embracing being, namely God. God consists of all existing living beings. These are organised as life within life. This means that every being is both a macrobeing, which provides living space for microbeings, and a microbeing, which gets its living space from a larger macrobeing. In this way all living beings are vital to one another.

The main details of the symbol:

The triangle and the white section in the middle symbolise the I and its superconsciousness. The area around it symbolises its physical body and its consciousness.

The repetition of smaller and smaller versions of the symbol shows that the living beings’ organisms are situated within living beings’ organisms. Our physical body is living space for our organs, which are in turn living space for our cells, which form the living space for even smaller microbeings, and so on downwards for all eternity.

Similarly, our physical body is a microbeing in the organism of the Earth, which is a micro-organism in the organism of the solar system, which is in turn a micro-organism in the Milky Way, and so on upwards for all eternity.
