When a triangle’s centre point is produced into the 3rd dimension, perpendicular to the plane, it forms a Tetrahedron – whose sides are four equilateral triangles, the most stable form in platonic geometry.
Nested Tetrahedrons: Unity of Above/Below, Point, Centre, Sides
Existentially, the 4th dimension extends individuated consciousness, to encompass as a whole, the world, the passage of time and space, community and nature’s eco-system.
The Tetrahedron in this sketch, contains a small inverted Tetrahedron. The four points of the inverted Tetrahedron touch from inside, the centres of the upright four surfaces. This demonstrates connectivity through centre-point, faces and polar opposites, as a philosophical tool.
In India, as in western Alchemy, the ascending triad is male, Siva. The descending triad is female, Shakti. Upon their equal inter-wovenness rests the lattice of our universe – nature, conception, orgasm, childbirth.
This Sri Chakra Yantra (from my drawing, tattoo’d on someone’s wrist) shows the interwoven lattice, through nine horizontal “strings”. The centre dot, the bindu, comes from in between the lines which form the triangle-bases: yet upon it, the whole design depends, for the point is infinite. Around it, the womb triangle (flattened shape) holds the Siva Shakti pattern in place, and draws the consciousness inward.
We can enhance our relationships, our work and our human tantra with these contemplative models, which touch on the 4th dimension, perceptually. The mysterious point from in between, touches itself always.
From triad, the extended 4th point includes awareness of the breath, and unique centre of gravity – as shared with every human being, creature, flower and rock.
This factor through empathy, liberates.
“Blessed are the cracked, for they let in the light!”
Being the point from in between our mother and father, forces us to be honest – the capacity to receive both sides. True to the point from in between the “mores” , we are vulnerable, unfixed and fluid – a spiritual and human growing-curve.
Philosophically, the Triad is a realization of the One through Two. The One is always dynamic, like the child through the parents.
My contacts with friends, colleagues, society and serendipity are interrelated. The same deep connection flows through all. The contemplation is a Oneness? … moving towards oneness.
Jung’s therapeutic aim was to journey with his client, into the “don’t know” point – into the mysteries of existence and the creative potential they release.
In my portrait painting days, a “connection” became tangible in the space between myself and my sitter. It was like a let-down reflex. I knew then that the work could be handed over to its Knower in the centre field. However hard it might be, it would turn out well … because it was already Known.
The connection feels like a third entity – where my subtle body receives and welcomes the other’s “imprint” – and it is full of life. Something relaxes inside.
When A (a healer) and C “connect”, they arise out of duality in the same way. They embody and share this aim:
The moment where past and present converge, holds its own future. We receive our “future” through integrating time and being in time.
What is “past” is the deep well beneath my feet: the root of my tree. Past and present together are a paradox through which I move forward, and empathise more with others …
– “the intra-connectivity: an observer’s ripple through the human quantum field – the butterfly wing effect” –
