Symbol 83
The Earth's Epoch of Wisdom

A summary explanation of symbol no. 83 – The Earth's Epoch of Wisdom

General notes on symbols nos. 78-85
Symbols nos. 78-85 show the Earth’s various epochs of evolution. The Earth is a living being and, like all other living beings, goes through the spiral cycle. In the middle of the symbols we see the Earth’s physical body. The surrounding coloured rings of rays symbolise the Earth’s spiritual world or spheres of consciousness. The large ring of rays shows the Earth’s day-consciousness in the particular epoch of evolution. The circle of jagged figures in the middle of the large ring of rays symbolises the pole structure. During evolution the energies in the other areas grow and occupy the day-consciousness; they then degenerate and fade away into the inner rings.

The Earth’s spiritual world is populated partly by beings that are passing through because of reincarnation and partly by beings that are resident in this area.

Explanation of symbol no. 83
The symbol shows the Earth's epoch of wisdom (green), when it lives in a sphere where it is at its most creative. The I of the Earth has left the physical planet and continues to live in a spiritual state in the kingdom of wisdom. The physical planet is now a dead planet, a moon, which the consciousness of the Earth's I does not have so much connection with.

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