The Esoteric Nature of God has been elucidated by a multitude of ancient and modern schools of spiritual thought from Eastern Esoteric Brahmanism, Ancient Western Paganism, and on into Theosophy, the Qabalah, and Golden Dawn Hermeticism. Yet, throughout these diverse groups permeates a congruent primal, primordial doctrine of First Principles and conceptualization of the Infinite, Eternal Essence and Causeless Cause. A great many of these mystical schools employ apophatic terminology when expounding upon this elusive Great First Principle because it is far more precise to ascertain what this principle is not than to define what it is. The most prominent and widely worshiped exoteric religions such as Christianity, Islam, & Judaism completely materialize & profane this most sublime Eternal Principle. Taken as an aggregate exoteric group, they all unknowingly forsake the Absolute for a unipolar, imbalanced, and Male Patriarchal God. Moreover, the gross materialization and anthropomorphic personification depicted as their "highest One God" highlights how fundamentally antithetical to Spiritual Occult Philosophy their Deity is compared with the Universal Unmanifested Principle.
Their utterly degenerated, Chimeric Ideation known as YAHWEH simply oozes with the staggeringly unphilosophical, illogical conceptions exhibited within Abrahamic thought (One's they allocated to "Him"). More significantly, the fundamental, core concepts within their Religion's Cosmological genesis, the inevitable Archetypal disharmony codified into the very essence of Abrahamic Religious Thought, and the resulting dissonance manifested by such monumentally shortsighted and unintelligent "Spiritual Church Founders or Rabbis'. THUS, there foundation is formulated upon CORE Cosmic fallacies that are blatantly overt and easily discernable. Abrahamic ideology warps Absolute Cosmic principles that are necessarily infused throughout the interplanar Superstructures of both the unseen and the Seen realms forming the VERY CORE basis for their continual equilibrium and thus Harmony.
Once this is fully comprehended, the deleterious doctrinal foundation of Abrahamic Religious Dogma becomes clear being due to the tradition's hierarchal unipolarity, intractable Patriarchalism, and root structural disequilibrium incepted within its very blueprint. The Aggregation of these fallacies and connected ideas bifurcated the stable gender archetypes of the Natural World unthinkingly inserting them into its core ideological structures. Therefore, with these destabilizing cognitive premises permeating the entirety of Abrahamic Tradition it transparently elucidates just how fundamentally incompatible their conceptualization of GOD is with the Esoteric Cosmogonic Mystery GOD of NON-BEING (the ABSOLUTE PRE-Cosmic Logos,).
Every Modern Esoteric School and Ancient Mystery Tradition uniformly acknowledged (across time, culture, and specialization) that any attempt to ascribe set qualities to the Unconditioned, Incognizable Root-Principle would be the greatest display of an Exercise in Futility. Moreover, this act of futility HAS ultimately affirmed the state of radical cognitive infantilization demonstrated by the Religious Masses as well as highlight the nonexistence of higher order thinking within the uninitiated masses. The religious mainstream of Humanity this is an unassailable conclusion for a variety of reasons. The One Source of reality is all that exists and everything else is merely a holographic fractal emanation of this One Source, essentially a microcosmic similitude of it. The ALL is ONE and One is the ALL.
The Theosophical depiction of Cosmogenesis is staggeringly systematic in its nuanced exposition of the Absolute's reawakening into a Manvataric Cycle of Active differentiation into the periodical Cosmos. Theosophy elucidates the knowledge and nature of the Absolute apophatically, with its rendition stating IT to be an eternal, omnipresent, and unconditioned Root principle (or causeless cause).
This conceptualization was most pertinently delineated by the founder of the Theosophical Society H. P. Blavatsky in her magnum opus The Secret Doctrine in which she extensively expounds upon this First Cause in her first part of this work called Cosmogenesis. In the terminology she utilizes which is from Eastern Occultism it is called Parabrahm and this is the primordial Causeless Cause of the totality of existence. This Parabrahm emanates Brahma, the first Logos which subsequently emanates the root Cosmic substance and the root Cosmic Ideation. These two Cosmic root Principles in conjunction with Fohat, the all pervasive electrical and vivifying principle, manifest the cyclical Universal Metastructure during Manvatara, or the totality of one Cosmic Cycle.
The Gnostics considered GOD, the Universal Logos to be an Unknowable, Ineffable, Inapproachable root source of Pure Light, or its Essence. They consistently refer to this light essence as incapable of being diminished, comprehended, or perceived by humanity in all forms of thought.
This specific axiom is continuously reiterated in Gnostic writings in order to ensure this axiom is fully grasped by initiates heavily emphasizing the utter folly of enshrining IT with ANY attributes, characteristics, or definitions. It is forever to be the Unknowable, Indescribable, Incomprehensible LIGHT, or AIN SOPH.
In the Secret Book of John, they refer to it as Barbelo and purvey the idea of it manifesting multiple aspects of its all-encompassing nature in the form of Gods and Goddesses called the Aeons. These Aeonic God aspects are the varied attributes of Barbelo representing the coalescence of concepts such as Wisdom in the Aeon Sophia. They are emanated in equalizing gendered pairs for balance and are in essence sentient plasmatic currents of light which are allocated the generative faculties of the Godhead.
The Kabbalistic Cosmogony contains and utilizes a uniquely conceived Composite Glyph called the Sephirothic Tree of Life to illustrate the processes of Cosmic unfolding into the manifested Universe. The Sephirothic Tree contains the Ten Sephiroth which correspond to the 10 conditioned States of Existence that become differentiated during the active cycles, and yet above the Tree are three illustrations of the kabbalah's pre-Cosmic states of unmanifested existence that are conceptualized as THE 3 Veils of Negative Existence. This Triune principle of Pre-Deities are in essence states of perpetual Nonexistence OR Non-Being (their titles highlight this idea) that always precede process Cosmic unfoldment. Their Names (Titles) are AIN, AIN SOPH, and AIN SOPH AUR. Accordingly, these translate as Negativity or No(thing). the Limitless, and the Limitless Light, respectively.
These three levels of the Unmanifested Primordial Essence reside in a dimensional reality separate from the lower Tree of Life, divine emanations, and the rest of the manifested emanations comprising the Universe. They are unapproachable to our consciousness, inconceivable to our scientific limits for understanding NON-MATTERIAL planes. it yet are the primal generator of all that exists with it being infused into the creation. They are a form of negative existence meaning they are in essence a concept of non-being as opposed to actual being which is the realm solely attributed to manifested things.
In the Rosecrucian Doctrine of Cosmogenesis, the Godhead is titled the Infinite Unmanifest and is the undifferentiated essence from which all manifestations spring into being once the cycle of generation has been initiated.
These are referred to as the Cosmic Nights and Cosmic Days of manifestation from which all universes arise and eventually dissolve back into primal unity with the Godhead until the next initiatory cycle of manifestation begins. It is the essence untouched by time, polarity, rhythm, causes or effects, and not able to be defined by attributes, qualities, differentiation, characteristics, or personifications. Rather, it is the infinite potential for all these concepts and from which they arise, yet it remains unchanged by its manifestations.
In all Esoteric Traditions, the One God or Logos is always conceived as an Eternal Unmanifested Cause, a Pre-Absolute CAUSE, or an Eternal CAUSE, or the Non-Being, consequently its Unique title of AIN SOPH which means the Limitless NO(THING). It is not considered as part of the created universe but is "defined" as a Self-Existent ROOT Essence from which the periodically manifested Cosmos derives its countless multitude of forms and phenomena.
The Universe is one essence differentiated into ten thousand versions of this essence while the primal essence remains eternal and unaltered. It is capable of diffusing its primordial nature into manifestations or emanations while remaining essentially itself simultaneously. It is the Akasha and vibratory frequency which weaves Indra's net of self-similar fractal patterns into existence which are mirroring life expressions of the non-existent Deity and which are correspondingly holographic to the nature of this Non-Being.
In the Hermetic Spiritual Philosophy there is the perception of God as a Universal Living Mind. This Universal Mind is often termed "THE ALL" and this due to it encompassing, permeating, and comprising all the varied, dynamic manifestations that make up the Cosmos in its totality.
This Eternal and Pantheistic Cosmic Mind is the life animating principle which, though veiled to our perception, is within all things in existence and allocates its primal essence to all things it emanates, thus infusing them with the divine spark of spirit. The ALL is a divine consciousness infusing the cosmos with its mental principle, and thus by default the entirety of the Universe is mental by nature and not physical as alleged with the physical aspects evolving from the mental states and forms which precede them.
According to Occultists, Esotericism, Mystics, and Sages of the Ancient Wisdom tradition, there is but one true reality and source of life which manifests the infinitude of diversity we collectively conceive of as the Universe. The concept of a Godhead pervades the plethora of Esoteric Spiritual Schools, Orders, and Disciplines throughout history and has remained entirely consistent due to its profound, reasoned, and unifying metaphysical schematic for classifying the all-encompassing Essence which structures the Cosmos. The Godhead, Source, Infinite Unmanifest is the Universal Principle, the Primal Quintessence from which all emanations and manifestations unfold into the plethora of dynamic, substantial, individuated, and unique life-forms & atomic components which propagate in the myriad of worlds diffused throughout the Cosmos. This Universal, Eternal essence is the life generating principle underpinning all these varied forms, archetypes, and manifestations doing so through the concept of autopoiesis, or self-generation.
Autopoiesis is the notion of intrinsic self-organization infused into every aspect of Cosmic existence enabling all the archetypal life-patterns to manifest and materialize in absolute alignment with Primal Natural Laws maintaining an equilibrium throughout the Universe. Allowing manifested phenomena to autopoetically generate themselves fosters the principle of non-directive emanation from the Godhead allowing the Cosmos to maintain its structural integrity without direct divine intervention or continuous divine oversight to manage the multitude of emanated archetypal life-forms or atomic meta-structures comprising the totality of existence. Thus, the Infinite Unmanifest is the quintessence from which everything arises yet paradoxically remains inherently separate from its emanated Universe.
The Infinite Unmanifest has often been referred to as a universal consciousness or spirit, yet this is only a partial truth of the absolute nature of the Godhead. The Unmanifested Essence is not able to be conceived in terminology reminiscent of created phenomena and requires an apophatic (negative) interpretation that is capable of elucidating the arcane nature of its conceptualization. Otherwise, if not illustrated in a terminology of negation, the entirety of this mysterious and seemingly paradoxical supposition would only scratch the surface of this subject remaining totally incomplete likely rendering its mental formulation into an contradictory conception of its true absolute actuality. One can only extrapolate on such a discordant delineation from the perspective of non-being, non-existence, and negation otherwise you have attributed something to the ALL-THING and dissolved its primal nature.
In the esoteric phraseology of an anonymous hierophant, the concept of the Unmanifested Deity is " Not This; Not That" and it is emphatically imperative for an individual to constantly reiterate this metaphysical absolute for any appreciable understanding to be obtained. The Infinite Unmanifest has been illustrated by the Rosicrucian's as Infinite Space or as a "circle whose center is everywhere and its circumference is nowhere" which though seemingly paradoxical at first glance is in actuality an elucidating concept once meditated upon thoroughly.
The concept of Infinite Space has always been regarded as the best approach to conceive of such an elusive notion since the unmanifest cannot be thought of consciously as a "Thing" and consciousness is only capable of comprehending 'things'. Factually speaking, the Infinite Unmanifest is a "Nothing" in contradistinction to a "Thing", and yet not such a "Nothing" as to insinuate "not-ness" or "naught" but such a 'No-Thing" as denotes the Possibility of Everything, yet without the Limitations of 'Thingness'.
Thus, Infinite Space cannot be described as a "thing' because it has none of the characteristics of a "Thing", however it unequivocally cannot be refused actual existence or presence. Approximately speaking, it may be described as "A No-Thing" comprising within itself the potentiality of infinite Thingness, or the infinite possibility of Things. Therefore, Infinite Space must be thought of as the Absolute Receptacle of Everything, whether manifest or unmanifest--- for outside of Infinite Space there is only Nothingness, or, stringently speaking there is no outside of Infinite Space. It has always been regarded esoterically in this symbolic terminology due to the fact that humanity is only capable of comprehending or "thinking of" the Infinite Unmanifest in such a conscious way.
It is the Eternal Parent wrapped in the Sleep of Cosmic Night. It has been stated about reality by ancient sages that, "The Essence of Being is without attributes, formless, devoid of distinctions, and unconditioned. It is different from that which we know, and from that which we do not know. Words and thought turn from it without finding it. The wise answer only by silence all questions concerning its nature. To all suggestions concerning its qualities, properties, and attributes, the wise simply answer: 'neti, neti'—'not this, not that!' Of THAT the wise assert simply 'It IS.'"
There are Eight Great Aphorisms utilized to concretely delineate the absolute Essence and expound decisively upon its nature. The First Aphorism states, " The Eternal Parent was Wrapped in the Sleep of the Cosmic Night". Thus, it is known by esotericists that the Infinite Unmanifest presents Itself in cyclical great periods of Manifestation, the Cosmic Days, and then great periods of Unmanifestation, the Cosmic Nights. During a period of Cosmic Night the ALL exists as if it is wrapped in an unconscious and dreamless sleep, out of which with the dawning of a new Cosmic Day it reawakens steadily into Manifestation. The Cosmic Day, correspondingly, eventually finds itself transforming into a Twilight, which then gradually, assuredly dissolving into the Cosmic Night when everything becomes inert and serene.
This Cosmic Cycle of Periodicity, that operates rhythmically in binary stages of active manifestation followed inevitably by a stage of dissipation, is one of a perpetual succession and reoccurrence, an eternal rhythm. These are the active and passive cycles of the Infinite Unmanifest. Upon initiation of an active cycle, a up-building evolution of the Divine Essence from without inwardly, and from within outwardly, occurs in compliance to eternal and immutable law, and the manifested, visible cosmos is the ultimate consequence of the extended sequence of cosmic forces successively generated into motion.
In juxtaposition to the Cosmic Period of manifestation, once the passive cycle is initiated, there is a corresponding contraction of the Divine Essence eventually resulting with the prior work of manifested creation becoming steadily and incrementally abrogated. The universe is degenerated, its material components disperse and completely dissolve, and "absolute darkness" arises singular and exclusively alone, "brooding once more over the face of the Deep". One metaphor routinely employed to illustrate more easily this concept is stated as follows, " an out-breathing of the 'unknown essence' produces the world; and an inhalation causes it to disappear".
Another such elucidating example from a learned esotericist is, " the universally coexistent forces of attraction and repulsion which, as we have seen, necessitate rhythm in all minor changes throughout the universe, also necessitate rhythm in the totality of its changes—produce now an immeasurable period during which the attracting forces predominating, cause universal concentration, and then an immeasurable period, during which the repulsive forces predominating, cause universal diffusion".
The First Aphorism further states, "Light there was not: for the Flame of Spirit was not yet rekindled." This is a difficult phraseology to garner appreciable understanding about due to several concepts routinely held by those only privy to partial truths about the Infinite Unamnifest with one consisting of the notion that the ALL is composed of pure Spirit with a Flame being the occult symbol of Spirit. However, this is only a half-truth for it has been taught by the initiated adepts that not only behind Matter, but also behind Spirit there resides an Eternal and Infinite Essence which is neither Matter nor Spirit, and this Essence is the fundamental and unconditioned root and source of both Spirit and Matter.
The ubiquitously held occult symbolic representation of Spirit, the Light and Flame, have veiled behind them the "Lightness and Heatless" Essence of Light and Flame itself. Thus, the Infinite Reality is unequivocally the Essence of the Spirit Light and Flame and not the Light and Flame itself accordingly. This has been termed the "Dark Flame" and it is the essence of the flame and light, not the flame or light itself which are the material manifestations of the veiled Essence from which they arise into existence. The essence is the "spirit of the fire" not the fire itself, because the attributes of the Fire-- light, heat, and flame---are not the qualities of this veiled Essence, but specifically, solely characteristics of the Fire which the Eternal Essence is the cause. Therefore, the Infinite Unmanifest must not be conceived by an individual as being Spirit, but intrinsically akin to Pure Space out of which the Flame materializes and is contained.
The First Aphorism states, "Time there was not: for Change had not begun." This statement about the Infinite Unmanifest is also a potentially onerous and intractably enigmatic description of an obviously confounding premise. The conception of Time, in a stringent philosophical understanding of its terminology, does not denote the pure duration of existence, but contradistinctively designates Time as "the measure of changing existence". A semipiternal, persisting reality in which there is no alteration of form, degree, or activity be it mental or physical, constitutes one that is Timeless. Consequently, Time is, in actuality, indicatively "but the measure of change". Absence of change, there accordingly no such thing as Time., and Pure Being manifests not Time. Therefore, Time is the consequence of Becoming, or Change, and is solely measured by change or becoming in something. Juxtapose the previous notion of Pure Duration which transpires without the requisite relational concept to the motions of changes in things.
Contrarily, Time is the reasoned quantification of any segment of duration, frequently comprised of specific phenomena, such as the orbital rotations of the stellar bodies or the movement of the earth upon its axis. Humanities typical notion of Time revolves around the idea of measurable motions, normally consisting of the systematic and steady rotary motions exhibited by stellar objects in the heavens, the segments of which, in the harmonious similitude, are the proper measurements of the recurrent and sequential quantity referred to as Time, from which they are formulated to coexist. Thus, Time may be designated as the perceived number of sequential motions.
Time is also correspondingly apparent to exist in the continual alterations and changes of our mental states, thoughts, and mental imagery whether waking or asleep. Therefore, in the absence of permutations in the outer or outside world, signified to our mind by the perception of such alterations, Time would not exist for us. Thus, proceeding from the notion of an Eternal Unalterable Reality, for whom and by whom no "outer world" has been or is manifested, and which resides in an unconscious, dreamless sleep, and for such a Reality there would unequivocally exist no Time at all, and Timelessness would abide until the initiation of changes begin to occur or reoccur. There is a wise quote that encapsulates this final analysis, " The student will perceive that given Infinite Existence, and the absence of Change, then we must necessarily postulate Pure Duration, and the absence of Time. There is no logical escape from this conclusion". The Eternal Parent is unalterable, unchangeable, timeless, and uniform.
The First Aphorism further states: "Things there were not: for Form had not re-presented itself." This concept will yet again illustrate a further immutable precept of existence and the nature of the Infinite Unmanifest. The concept of a "Thing" is whatever manifests, or is formulated to exist, as a distinct entity, as an individuated or independently manifested object of thought. Furthermore, all "Things" must manifest into a "Form" distinguishable from other "Forms". The stipulation of a Form is: (1)the schematic or structure of anything, as differentiated from its material components from which it is comprised, or configuration; (2) the process of functioning or manifestation of anything in relation to the senses or the intellect; (3) the aggregation of characteristics embodying a conception, or the inner composition that makes a manifested thing what it is.
In Contradistinction to the Infinite Unmanifest, in specific terminology, a "Thing" must intrinsically contain the potential of being conceived of or imagined as being constituted of qualities, attributes, or properties differentiating its nature from other manifested things, and thus it is requisite for all "Things" to emanate a form so that it may be discernible and cognized by our senses or intellectual mind as a distinct Thing. Consequentially, the Infinite Unmanifest---The Eternal Parent--- must indubitable, emphatically not be adjudged or considered to manifest Form, or to exhibit or intimate any definite characteristic, feature, or attribute of Manifestation when residing in its Unmanifested State, and this is absolutely imperative for conclusive apprehension of this concept.
Once the Eternal Essence dons the Robe of Manifestation it subsequently descends into an involution of activity to materialize the appearance of Things, with these Things each exhibiting Form that consist of distinct characteristics, properties, or attributes which can differentiated from the other Manifested Things. It is apodictic within acknowledged philosophical inquiry and metaphysical conceptualization that the Infinite Unmanifest must be explicitly denied the idea of comprising or manifesting (within its essential nature) any single designation of qualities, properties, or attributes which subsequently emerge in its Manifestation of Things, as demarcated from the inverse assemblage of qualities, properties, characteristics, or attributes. Furthermore, the Infinite Unmanifest cannot be mentally envisioned as comprising or being an integration of the opposite aggregations of qualities, properties, or attributes due the immutable fact that opposites inherently negate each other becoming dissolved in their polar dis-affinity.
In absolute contrariety, the Infinite Unconditioned Essence, in lieu of possessing qualities, properties, or attributes-- or Form in any designation of terminology-- the Unmanifest must be appraised as signifying the "potentiality of infinite manifestation of Form, qualities, properties, and attributes in its manifestations," or "the infinite possibility of the manifestation of Form, qualities, properties, or attributes in its manifested Things." The Infinite Eternally Unmanifest Essence cannot be postulated as a "Thing" either in itself or through its diagrammatic symbol of Infinite Space. As an illumined esoteric sage once said, " it must be regarded as "An Omnipresent, Eternal, Boundless, and Immutable Principle, regarding which all speculation is impossible, since it transcends the power of human conception and could only be dwarfed by any human expression or similitude. It is beyond the range and reach of thought—it is unthinkable and unspeakable." This is an immutable and inescapable conclusion.
Additionally, the First Aphorisms states, "Action there was not: for there were no Things to act". There is an obvious level of self-evidence contained within the first statement due to the intrinsic nature of the previous aphorism and preceding explanation. However, an extrapolation for its appreciation is a necessary for brief consideration. Accordingly, since the Infinite Unmanifest during its state of Non-Being is not comprised of ANY Things, therefore as there are currently existing no "Things" to exhibit characteristics or stimulative action notions entirely ascribed to the Active cycle of manifestation, consequently there are no Things that can engage in activity or act at all. No-thing Exists
Moreover, since all activity of the Infinite Unmanifested Essence must be via Things, and it be requisite that all activity displays Change it is apparent that where there is Change there is unable to be activity, thus there is no activity within the Eternal Parent. However, the Infinite Unmanifest must not be imagined to be powerless, since it contains ALL POWER, and further it must not be considered as motionless, as opposed to active, for within its being is Abstract Motion. Hence, finitely expressed, the Eternal Parent during its restful non-being state, it resides in a State of such inconceivably Infinite Motion that juxtaposed to relative motion, it exists in a State of Absolute Rest.
The First Aphorism further states, "The Pairs of Opposites there were not: for there were no Things to manifest Polarity." It is abiding and inherent to the conception of the UnManifested Infinite Essence that while in a state of inactivity it remain undifferentiated, yet once initiating its descent into a Cycle of Manifestation it must actuate every Thing it emanates through the combination of qualities, properties, or attributes. Every single emanated quality, aspect, property, or attribute is but one of a pair of Opposite manifestations, being but one Pole of the dual Polarities residing in a specific Quality that is ever existent within the Cosmic Manifestation.
Thus, there consisting of One quality, characteristic, or attribute of Thingness, it is necessarily requisite that there must inherently manifest in other Things an inverse or Opposite principle, its other Pole---its antithetical essence or antithesis. This is an immutable Law of Manifestation without exception, and even if the manifested Opposite principle or quality be not readily apparent or seemingly absent in reality, a determined and diligent investigation will assuredly unveil its reality with it being existent and intrinsically logically predicated out of a necessity.
It is a familiar concept mentioned within the seven Hermetic Principles and can ascribe the polarity inherent with ideas such as: Hard and Soft, Hot and Cold, Large and Small, Far and Near, Up and Down, Day and Night, Light and Darkness, Long and Short, Wet and Dry, Form and Force, Male and Female, etc. Whether our linguistic systems seemingly fail to elucidate an obvious Polarity to a particular component or terminology of existence, the postulated Opposite may be then delineated by adding the prefix "Not" to the regarded quality, aspect, or attribute. Certain metaphysicians & spiritual philosophers have postulated that the term "Infinite" denotes a quality, essence, or property which was the Inverse of the term Finite, yet this is merely a sophism for a misconstrued conceptualization of the terms Infinite or Finite. Strictly speaking, in regarding the terminology of "Infinite", it should be the inverse of any limit, boundary, impediment, or restriction of form regardless of the extent, quantum scope, or magnitude.
It is an undeniable impossibility for human consciousness to conceive, envision, or imagine in a concrete thought-form the nature of the Infinite Unmanifest, nor to attribute terminology corresponding to Thingness or Form, properties, characteristics, does it insinuate the idea of or attributes of any type to this Eternal Essence, thus the linguistic concept of "Infinity" exhibits no opposite. It is solely upon the inception of a Cycle of Manifestation that duality or Polarity is born into reality. The Infinite Unmanifest is depicted as & signifies the concept of negation being without limitations, boundaries, forms, or restrictions of any kind. Instead, it contains the potentiality for an infinite quantity of manifestations to be generated. They are always manifested as polarized binary pairs or "oppositional" forces which come into existence as harmonious, equilibrated dualities of degrees. This primal precept highlights that all materialized Things or Objects, out of a necessity imbued by Natural Law, must exhibit an archetypal Polarity to become manifested as qualities, attributes, or characteristics. Consequently, it is conclusive that the Eternal Parent, in its primal essence, possess none of the pairs of Opposites designated to Polarity or their presence.
Lastly, The First Aphorism finally states: "The Eternal Parent, causeless, indivisible, changeless, infinite, rested in unconscious, dreamless, sleep. Other than the Eternal Parent there was Naught, either Real or Apparent." When considering the supposition that the Eternal Parent is causeless it is seemingly self-evident due to the immutable fact that it is an impossibility for the Eternal Essence, The Original Being, to have been conceived, predicated, or caused by any force other than itself since it is the ALL, with it encompassing, constituting, and exhibiting all the potentiality or possibility of all manifested causes and things from which they proceed. That which is Eternal must inherently out of immutable necessity be entirely Causeless.
The Infinite could not conceivably have an Other which preceded its origination or could have been its causal antecedent; nor could it have been created out of Nothing because, accordingly, out of Nothing proceeds nothing. The precept that the Infinite Unmanifest be undifferentiated, or indivisible is also similarly self-explanatory due to the unavoidable fact that any-thing that is able to be divided into segments or components is correspondingly comprised of particles or pieces negating the idea of it being a Uniformity. Furthermore, any-thing comprised of particles must consequently be just an Aggregation, Amalgamation, or a Composite of these parts once again negating the conception of it being an Eternal Totality or a true Unity. Consequentially, anything designated as a truly Infinite cannot become differentiated or individuated into fragmentary aspects of itself without negating its intrinsic Infinity. These Absolute predicates any notion of True Infinity, and there is no logical escape from this conclusion.
Additionally, the Eternal Unmanifested Essence is incapable of Essential Change is evident and elementary because even manifesting the total potentiality of the infinitude of Things, the Infinite Unmanifest must remain inherently itself, never any-thing except itself. Not being comprised of any qualities or properties it cannot undergo any form of changeability which correspond to the manifestation of Polarity in the Pairs of Inverse Principles. Also, it does not display or exhibit any Form which is essential for Change and Permutation to transpire. The Eternal Parent, The Infinite Unmanifested Essence, is absolutely Immutable, and there is no avoiding its conclusivity.
Finally, this Eternal Principle accordingly rest in a state of "Dreamless Unconsciousness" with it being logically unavoidable due to the fact that regular consciousness is predicated upon its ability to change or shift in its mental state. Thus, an unchangeable state of Consciousness must be regarded as an Unconscious one. However, this does not imply that this Infinite Unconsciousness is somehow "an inferiority or lesser conception of Consciousness" but contrarily it is state of existence that ascends beyond ordinary consciousness--- a state of Infinite Super-Consciousness--a transcendent state of Consciousness, that contains within its nature the "potentiality of Consciousness" without the implicit implementation of it. Ordinary natural consciousness is therefore a descent from this phase of existence and not an ascent.
Now to lightly recapitulate this into a Conclusion, the crux of these lengthy delineations has been to offer an exegetical delineation along with a thorough analysis on the Divine Enigma: The Occult Mystery God. The only methodology capable of an such an Indepth comprehensive exposition, with its validity unquestionable, was utilizing an Apophatic process of "Definition by Negation" in order to adequately eliminate the totality of ingrained Exoteric Dogmas, ideological preconceptions, and usage of most materialistic terminology. Accordingly, by strict adherence to a negative, apophatic method for demonstrating "Mystery God's attributive characterization (or lack of it) in conjunction with a pure, rigorously Logical formula to illustrate the rational and correct reasoning underlying the Occult Definition of GOD. Consequently, this long but systematic process generated the required conceptualizations and irrefutable stepwise Logic necessitated for the Truth of "God" to be conclusively demonstrated efficaciously enough to cause Exoteric Religious Fanatics to rethink their childlike conceptions of the Abrahamic God Yahweh.
The high sophistication and sublime reasoning underlying nature of the Occult Mystery God is the antithesis of commonly expressed Exoteric notions about God by the Abrahamic laymen. The Esoteric explanation of the Absolute is one referring to A Root Essence or the Infinite Unmanifest that presides over Cosmic Cycles as the Eternally Unconditioned Essence that emanates an initial fragment that will then crystallize into the FIRST CAUSE. This in turn emanates the stimulating force that subsequently inaugurates a New Cycle of Manifestation in the Cosmos in a stupendously intricate process of Involution of Spirit towards a state in materialization and effectuates these through Cosmic Natural Law eternally reconstituted through repeated cycles of Cosmic Differentiation.
This Universal Essence is incomparable to and in actuality a complete refutation of the widely worshiped, believed, and held concept of the Patriarchal Deity of Abrahamic Theology. The Biblical Deity continuously and infallibly exhibits every conceivable characteristic that is a total negation of this Universal Principle, (one predicated upon the fundamental absolutes required for an Eternal, Immutable, and Undifferentiated Essence), and is a Creator which constantly demonstrates its schizophrenic personality, rampant emotionality, obvious masculinity, penchant for nepotism, divine condemnation, genocidal retribution, and predilection for Humanity's anti-nature psychopathology which has disintegrated our symbiotic relationship with Gaia not to mention our fellow terrestrial inhabitants.
Within the World's three largest and most successful Religions (Islam, Judaism, and Judeo-Christianity), there reside extensive, ponderous, and erroneous conceptions of a Creator God that essentially cannot be logically avoided or denied by their billions of constituent followers. If any of these faith-assured religious followers of a Patriarchal Universal Creator could take a reasoned philosophical step back and engage in an honest, unbiased, contemplative exercise of dissecting their chosen religious paradigm, they would unerringly though reservedly arrive at the inescapable conclusion that the tenets of their previously sound belief system cannot possibly be correct.
The intrinsic fallacies pervading the core of these widely held spiritual belief systems are a multitude of unnatural, imbalanced, metaphysically unsound, and ideologically systemic concepts that unequivocally disintegrate the foundational precepts upon which the Universe and God must stand. One of the basic assumptions of these faiths, unanimously stipulated without adequate extrapolation on intrinsic harmonic causal principles, is to insinuate the inexplicable premise of Cosmic creation solely to the actions of a Male, Father Deity. This Masculine Divinity is then anthropomorphized, personified, and personalized into a Deity who exhibits qualities of hyper emotionality, humoresque personality, biases, and opinionated behavioral characteristics which is a contradiction of the very essence of a Universal Creator that would inherently be beyond such qualities. Furthermore, the Abrahamic Religions stipulate the absurd notion of a chosen people or holy elect exclusively destined to fulfill this Patriarchal Deity's Divine plan for the world while the rest of the species by default becoming excluded from their divine architect's salvationist program.
Additionally, these Faiths unambiguously prescribe to the presumed conviction of Humanity being either a fallen race or inherently flawed from its inception point in the Divine Plan, absolving their Creator of any blame, and thus indicating nigh demanding the need for a Messianic figure to essentially manifest and save the entirety of the elect from their disastrous, sinful nature or broken world in the future. The final preposterous precept ingrained within the ideologically fatalistic framework of the Abrahamic Religious substructure is the perilous conception of an End of Days scenario or final Armageddon orchestrated by the Father God himself to absolve the world of sin, save his chosen elect, and/or annihilate his non-chosen adversaries. This final act is purportedly meant to salvage the divine plan. Yet, the concept of a Divine plane of this nature is intrinsically flawed when held up to natural, universal laws and when seen from an in-depth psychological perspective it could not manifest from anything other than a human or an insane False Deity.
Firstly, the concept of our Universe being a unique manifestation of a singularly Masculine Deity without either a Female Divine consort or an equalizing Feminine force is entirely inconceivable from a natural law perspective. It is metaphysically, logically, and naturally impossible for a purely Masculine force to manifest on its own force alone due to the Laws of the Cosmos which are intrinsically based on a binary equilibrium between the union of male/female emanations for co-creative manifestation. Without this union of the male and female life principles, it would be completely impossible for anything to manifest into creation because emanative creation is based in duality for existence, otherwise the manifestation would be imbalanced and unable to exhibit dynamic stimulation for expansive evolution into the next stage of life. Thus, the only logical conclusion for a Deity's nature would be for it exist as an inherently binary entity, or for it be neither male nor female in nature but contain the essence and potentiality for both principles simultaneously.
Secondly, the naive notion of a creator God exhibiting the humanistic tendencies of our species is a complete negation of its essence as a higher being than ourselves, and this idea would place our Creator on a vibratory level of consciousness which is base, childlike, and capricious. Throughout the Old Testament, the Abrahamic Deity continuously exhibited an uncanny temperament for human behavioral conduct such as inciting his chosen people to foment war on others, reacting in abject anger if they broke his laws, testing particular men to prove their loyalty to Him, and toying emotionally with people through instituted, sanctioned and demands of child sacrifice. No true Universal Creator who is presumed to love his creation, all creation not selectively, and is also immanent in the creation would ever manifest such repulsive, deleterious, and morally ambiguous actions upon his creation.
Additionally, the Abrahamic Religious Deity has frequently been anthropomorphized by its adherents with its portrayal as that of a Wise-Bearded figure residing on high in a throne of clouds which is to once again personify the Universal Creator as Human-like in nature or appearance. This personification is a constrictive force upon a Deity who, according to the Biblical scriptures, is essentially Everything, omnipresent, omnipotent, and all pervasive. Such ultimate concepts would be limited by his being in human form; thus he cannot be both for one negates the other metaphysically. He is either all things or one thing with great powers, but the Abrahamic religions want it both ways and that is a contradiction in terms.
Furthermore, the conviction that any true Creator would desire, need, and require the worship of his created constituents is to presuppose that Deity has specific characteristics within its framework of "personality" deficient enough to generate human behavioral patterns. Thus, this form of humanizing THE Deity engenders further notions that the Deity remains incomplete and is technically, according to such reasoning, not a truly Omnipotent God by default. Though humanity has frequently since time immemoria fostered, promulgated, and acted on this illogical belief, it does not stand up to rigorous metaphysical scrutiny when diffused into its appropriate philosophical components and sufficiently viewed through the true eye of reason. Any Deity that needs sycophants is one which is likely parasitical by nature.
Thirdly, the stipulated ideology behind nearly all Biblical renditions, be it Judaic, Islamic, or Christian, is the arrogantly radical notion of the Universal Creator exhibiting favoritism towards a select people in his creation. This concept is extraordinarily flawed due to a plethora of metaphysical, logical, and philosophical fallacies. According to Abrahamic Religions, the Creator is Universal, omnipotent, and omnipresent love as well as residing in all things. Thus, we have a Creator which loves his creation and is IN HIS CREATION on all levels of existence according to these religious precepts. Then these Religions stipulate that this same Creator proceeded to manifest a race of beings, Humanity, which are endowed with an innate capacity to interact with this Divinity and are able to do so because they are a fractal of this Being.
Once accomplished, this Divinity in veritable defiance of its inclusive, comprehensive, and magnanimous propensity for Universal Love decides to indiscriminately designate a minute fraction of his Creation as his Elect, with only those classified as Chosen capable of interacting with him personally, carrying out his Divine Plan or Will, or entering his heavenly afterlife upon cessation of their material form. How could a Ubiquitous, Omnipresent, Loving Divinity (that is fundamentally the Created Universe itself) ever demonstrate favoritism to ANY part of its creation since it would essentially be favoring a piece of Itself over other parts of itself. Furthermore, the idea follows that everyone and everything else not Chosen has been neglected, restricted, and excluded from this Divinity and any interaction with it; and since everything else that is now excluded are really just parts of HIM, why would a supposed UNIVERSAL Being, now seemingly not so Universal, quarantine parts of itself in such a way. This absurd Ideology negates the very notion of a benign Universal Creator which is both all-permeating and all-inclusive.
Fourthly, within the Theological Doctrines of Judeo-Christianity is the pernicious, presumptuous supposition that Humanity, even Yahweh's chosen be it Christian or otherwise, was from its inception a tainted, sinful, and sullied manifestation of the Patriarchal Creator God. This is the doctrine of Original Sin and it arose due to either our failure in the beginning of time (Garden of Eden Story), because its our nature, or due to naively being tricked by the Devil. This has resulted in the iniquitous idea of Humanity perpetually residing in a fallen state of existence from which it must be saved from or atoned for in the future. This belies their notion that the Universal Creator is perfect and benevolent because, though he endowed us with free will, he obviously had malicious intent to so tempt and exploit the creation he so loves simply to test them while they reside in utter psychological, emotional, and moral infancy.
Strangely, this inimical scenario is incumbent upon the idea of Adam and Eve's desire to eat of the Tree of Knowledge, purportedly placed in their habitat as a test with instructions from on high to avoid its Knowledge, after EVE became enticed to do so by a dubious serpent. Consequently, this resulted in the blaming of EVE (the Divine Feminine Principle), the consistent dismissal and societal marginalization of females by males, and the rise of Spiritual Patriarchy within the Western mindset for centuries, continuing to this very day. Furthermore, this spiritual stigma has been extremely disempowering and psychologically devastating for our Anthropic race as whole. Such an acutely detrimental ideology could only be disastrous for a species in need of a positive evolutionary path leading to balanced states of consciousness, a firm psychological and moral foundation, and a benign perspective on their self-identity.
Fifthly, in correlation to and proceeding from the previous point of Original Sin, the Abrahamic conception of a Messiah or Messianic figure is an augmentative delineation upon our intrinsically amoral state as a race of beings. The Messianic premise stems from our apparent incompetence for efficaciously managing our congenitally flawed disposition. The ineptitude of Humanity to recover their befallen state or effectually aid in enacting their God's Divine Plan, consequentially generates the abject need for a Savior figure to concomitantly materialize, salvage the Divine Plan, and redeem the Human Race or the chosen people. In Judaism this redeemer has not yet manifested while in Christianity he was Jesus Christ, the Son of God. The entire idea is also seemingly preordained by the Abrahamic Creator Deity and figured into his Divine Plan from its inception, and this should engender a burgeoning implication, in any sane individual's reasoning mind, that this Divinity had a systemically fallacious blueprint from its initial contrivance.
Rather, it would far more logical to deduce that this Deity is either not the Primordial benevolent Creator of the Universe or that he lacks the presumed capacity for comprehensive reasoning intelligence, strategic planning, and moral foresight entirely. Furthermore, the notion that we as a species require a savior is so psycho-spiritually subversive that it would inevitably foster emotional toxicity, psychological deterioration, psychic devolution, moral regression, and spiritual atrophy. A Deity that begets a species destined to require a Messiah is not one that could have had its best interest in mind when formulating his ultimate plan due to its implicitly debilitating nature upon such an ill-conceived creation. It is also extremely difficult and stupefyingly infantile to envision that a newborn, in its pristine state, is inherently sinful, doomed to failure, and born without the capacity for goodness simply due to the fact it was materialized into this realm of existence.
VI. The Abrahamic concept of the Creator's permanent afterlife, (be it Heaven, Hell, or Purgatory) where individuals are ultimately sent based on a multitude of determinative life actions, essentially depends on the religious denomination individuals adhere to in this singular lifespan. The basic assumptions of the Abrahamic afterlife are as follows: you are a follower of Yahweh and thus Chosen for a special place in his designated Heaven(Judaism); you are allowed into Heaven if you simply have Faith and acceptance in God-Jesus scenario regardless of your actions(Christianity); you are allowed into heaven if you accept Jesus and if you perform enough "good works"(Protestantism); you are allowed into Heaven if you are Predestined to go there regardless of your actions good or bad and its unchangeable(Calvinism); you are allowed into Heaven if Pure enough otherwise you go Purgatory for an unknown amount of time until Life-Sins have been rectified(Catholicism); if you fail any of these purported tenets for entry to heaven you are damned to an eternity in Hell where a plethora of sadistic, horrifying circumstances befall your soul. All of these presumptuous post-death dogmas are inherently exclusive of non-believers, either too easy leading to spiritual arrogance or conversely improbable to attain leaving the believer in uncertainty creating perpetual fear of death.
These ideologies are completely and absolutely contradictory to the essence of Natural Law and paradoxically antithetical to the energetic principles established by the Universal Creative Logos. The Primal Natural Laws of this emanated universal matrix were established to continuously manifest an acute equilibrium between the polarity's existent in the array of cosmic principles structuring the one reality. Furthermore, in tandem with the natural polarity of the Universe there is the Law of perpetual rhythm and cyclical rotation of spiritual energy designed to maintain a regenerative principle required for the proper, healthy creation of cosmic life in every form.
Consequently, if this cycle of cosmic rejuvenation is not maintained this would lead to the stagnation of energy and the dissolution of the Universe, so it is a necessity that this process never be hindered and thus according to Law it cannot occur. Therefore, the premise and presumption that a being constructed of this life principle could, upon its material demise, become fixed in an afterlife of utter stagnation, be it in Heaven or Hell, would be entirely antithetical to this Law of Cyclical Regeneration and out of the question. Additionally, the notion that a benevolent Creative God would construct a fundamentally discordant and exclusive post death afterlife realm betrays the entire idea of Him being magnanimously universal.
VII. The final and most insidious conviction held by the Abrahamic belief systems is the one in which the Creator Deity enacts final judgement upon not only the world but the entire human race for failing to live up to his celestial program. This preordained Armageddon is the ultimate act of this Deity in which all of humanity is held accountable for the erroneous, immoral actions of the unrepentant majority who decided, either unknowingly or deliberately, to abstain from groveling before this Patriarchal God, his messianic savior, and his iniquitous program for Humanity. Additionally, during this devastating period of divine retribution, the people that successfully adhered to all aspects of this Creator's precepts must still suffer through this chaotic episode for an unspecified amount of time before eventually receiving their celestial reprieve, and this is stipulated to occur only after a militaristic, vengeful manifestation of the previous Messiah returns to finish what he apparently failed to bring to fruition the first time, the absolution of Humanity from their presumed, inborn sinful nature.
However, this entire proposition is based on flaws infused into humanity while still in their infancy and seems abjectly illogical for a heralded benevolent Creator to manufacture a succession of events that repeatedly end in failure until the last act, would this not suggest to any sane individual that this Creator is entirely deficient & unrefined in strategic planning, malevolent in his execution, morally warped in his prejudice against non-believers, and lacking in foresight though he is supposedly omnipotent. Any Deity that would concoct such an absurdly unrefined celestial plan, institute successively deliberate failures, sanction the domination of all beings refusing to kneel in worship to his greatness, and dictate his decrees in such a repugnant fashion cannot possibly be the same Deity that embodies celestial love and benevolence. Only a capricious and callous Deity would behave in this distorted manner towards his beloved creation, which remember is simply a fractal version of himself since he is inherently the creation individuated into its parts. In conclusion, such a Creator couldn't possibly be One True Quintessence and must by default be an aberrant false Deity that has hijacked its creation for essentially malicious reasons without our best interests in mind and in actuality our complete subjugation as his agenda.
