Symbol 49
A Microcosmic Stellar System. The Organic Atomic World

A summary explanation of symbol no. 49 – A Microcosmic Stellar System. The Organic Atomic World

This symbol shows the principle behind the analysis of the supermicrocosmic atomic world in our organism; it constitutes the basis for a number of the subsequent symbols.

The symbol shows a system with atoms and electrons in the supermicrocosmos of our organism.

When we go down into this supermicro-universe we see the atom as a sun, and the system can therefore also be regarded as a sun with planets that belong to it. In the foreground we a single atom (top left corner) with two electrons (the large circular figures on the right), on which the analysis is concentrated. The other figures show that that, here too, just as out in the great universe, we are dealing with an entire universe with many other atomic systems with their respective planets.

From the atom there is a connection to the two electrons, and, through this, the atom constitutes a life-giving centre for the life in the electrons, in the same way as the sun is a life-giving centre for the Earth and the other planets. From the atom or sun, energies of consciousness are sent from the spiritual plane to the material plane. What we call matter is a particular relationship between the atom and its electrons. In our organism there are individual types of atoms in the various parts of the body. There are atoms of instinct, gravity, feeling, intelligence, intuition and memory.

Martinus' own explanation of the symbol can be found in The Eternal World Picture, vol. 5, which is not yet available in English.
