Symbol 84
The Earth's Epoch of Intuition

A summary explanation of symbol no. 84 – The Earth's Epoch of Intuition

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. 84
When the kingdom of wisdom has been outlived, the Earth-being moves on to the divine world, the sphere of intuition (blue). The physical planet is still a dead world; it can have disintegrated completely. When we see it in the middle of the symbol, it is only because it is a distinctive mark.

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