The Four is the One


Farley Earle Granger is dead.  Please allow me to explain why that is so stunningly important in our hunt for bread crumbs along the trail of Synchronicity.

First, a little background.

In my last post I discussed how the number pattern 1-2-3 (which can also be expressed as A-B-C in alphabet format) has emerged in many recent world events and symbolizes a shift or transition out of Form and into Spirit.

Then Eleleth (author of the Kosmos Idikos blog) added a comment to that post with a link to the "Axiom of Maria", an Alchemical precept which states:

"One becomes two, two becomes three, and out of the third comes the one as the fourth."

Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung used the axiom as a metaphor for the process of individuation. One is unconscious wholeness; two is the conflict of opposites; three points to a potential resolution; the third is the transcendent function, described as a "psychic function that arises from the tension between consciousness and the unconscious and supports their union"; and the one as the fourth is a transformed state of consciousness, relatively whole and at peace.Wikipedia

This insight helped me to understand how the One and the Four are the same.  The 1st (primordial) state and the 4th (enlightened) state are both states of wholeness.  The only difference is consciousness.  

In the 1st state we are unconscious, meaning we do not know ourselves as separate from All That Is.

"Adam and Eve were both naked, and they felt no shame."— Genesis 2:25


As exemplified in the pic above, the serpent (Kundalini/7 Chakras culminating in the Head chakra) is the process of individuation that produces the idea of separation.  Which brings us to the 4th state where we consciously perceive ourselves in the illusory form of a separate, individualized entity.

"Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they realized they were naked."Genesis 3:6

But the idea of separateness is only a negative thing when we forget the original state of wholeness from which we both emanated and are still a part of, simultaneously.  

Thus, it becomes necessary to transcend ourselves (the Self being the Ego that is utterly convinced it is omniscient, omni-powerful, and alone) in order to recover and reintegrate the memory of wholeness—"...out of the third comes the one as the fourth." 

Ego Death commences and Fear of Death ends.  A Few Shots to Shaman blog confirms that the number 42 represents our progression to non-fear of Death.

Ultimately, this may be the greatest embedded meaning in the synchronistically famous Jupiter symbol.


The "Jupiter Numbers" 4, 2, and 1 are symbolic of the progression from conscious states 1 to 2 to 3 to 4 (back to 1).  The 3rd state does not need to be included in the symbol because, as Jung wrote, it is understood to be a transitory and transcendent state.

Therefore, 1-2-3 is actually 1-2-3-4, or Four States of Consciousness (of which we seem to be in the 4th State now).  The 4th State also seems to be broken down into a series of Seven Cycles.


With this information in mind it became clear to me that the next few famous deaths would most likely be representative of the 5th, 6th, and 7th cycles, which can also be expressed as E-F-G. 

On 3/23 we grieved the loss of a legendary "E"...Elizabeth Taylor.  Next, Geraldine Ferraro (GF) passed away on 3/26.  Then on 3/27 came the loss of actor Farley Earle Granger (FEG).


Perhaps this indicates that the first of the Seven Cycles has now been completed.

More sync confirmations appeared in an episode of House, M.D. [air date: 3/14] which bore an eerie resemblance to two of my previous posts (see Stab Me in the Heart and The Heartquake).


In Season 7, Episode 16, House and his team diagnose a champion Bullfighter.  The patient is played by Chad Faust (the same actor who was Kyle on the TV series The 4400...more on that sync in my next post).

CLICK HERE to watch House, M.D. S7 Ep 16 "Down the Chute"

Season 7, Episode 16 = 716. 
716 can be expressed numerologically as 42 or 142  (since 7 x 6 = 42).

Spoiler Alert:  In the end House's team has to Explode the Bullfighter's Heart to save his life by Stabbing it with a needle.


House undergoes his own personal Ego Death experience in the show's background story.  He eventually transcends his fear by jumping off a hotel balcony. 

But instead of dying he falls into a pool of water signifying Baptism, Rebirth, Transformation or Transcendence, Ego Death.  Others jump into the pool with him, symbolizing that he has reintegrated all parts of himself.


The Bullfighter's experiences throughout the show encapsulate the metaphor of Jung's Process of Individuation:

1st State (Unconscious Wholeness):  The Bullfighter is in perfect sync as he is riding the Bull (a symbol of Christ Consciousness). He rises and falls naturally and easily with it.

2nd State (Conflict of Opposites):  The Bullfighter loses his rhythm as he tries to dominate the Bull while the Bull bucks him. Eventually the Bullfighter falls off and the Bull gores him in the chest (the Heart area).


3rd State (Potential Resolution/Transcendence):  The team of doctors struggle to diagnose and treat the unknown condition that is killing the Bullfighter.

4th State (Conscious Wholeness):  The doctors must "explode" the Bullfighter's heart to save his life; they inform him that the procedure could kill him and that he will no longer be able to ride Bulls afterwards.  He accepts the news calmly saying, "I'll just have to find something else to love". Ego death commences and Fear of Death ends.

******************
On a Personal Note:
At this point, my reality is forever breached.  I know for a certainty that something very important is happening and a major milestone has been crossed.  That having been said I'm honestly no longer sure whether I'm writing this blog so others can read it or if this is only My Higher Self writing to Me so that I can understand what the hell is transpiring.  I suspect maybe both.

For the record, I'm also not sure that I believe in conspiracy theories anymore.  Now I think this is all simply the language of the universe—Synchronicity relentlessly expressing itself, transmitting the same signal over and over again, hoping we will notice. 

Hoping we will remember to forget ourselves...and finally wake up. 

[IMPORTANT:  I feel it necessary to express that it is never my intent to demean the lives or deaths of any persons mentioned in this blog, but only to point out the existence of relevant events within the flow of Synchronicity.]

  2. Thanks, Crystal. My birthday was April 1st (4/1). So the insight that the Four is the One was particularly poignant for me.

    It's like I'm finally getting the big picture and the Universe is confirming it for me (i.e. by putting syncs in one of my favorite TV shows House).

    I've also been having so many other personal syncs that I'm not sure how to explain them all. But in my next few blog posts I'm gonna try.

    Also, I beseech any of you who are having personal syncs to please continue sharing them so that we can all witness the Joy together.

  3. We must be on the same wavelength. i've been coming to a similar conclusion myself about the universe. Thanks for sharing it with us. Happy belated birthday!

  4. I'm with Crystal on this one. Solid, Beautiful work. I love it when you or Eleleth does my heavy lifting for me. So funny this idea of Self w/ a capital S.

    I've been thinking lately about The Two (because of my work, and how it has become so polarized--yet individuals are awaking and becoming conscious for the first time) What does 4 do? Let Yin & Yang fight? How doe I get them to play nice?

    I'm so glad you are sharing your journey. great stuff!

  5. Many myths seem to have a twofold significance: first, describing the creation of the universe and the descent of spirit into matter; second, describing the psycho-alchemical process within the individual.

    Thus, perhaps, why there are two versions of the Osiris myth: in the first, Osiris' phallus is replaced with a wooden simulacrum (spirit into form); in the second, it is gold (form into spirit).

  6. Our Dr. House seems to be mimicking the Mithraic Leontocephaline. Appropriate, considering the Mithraic content of the rest of the episode. There is clearly a technical alchemical meaning behind the bullfighter being stabbed in the heart by the bull (virile energy)--it is the same as Cleopatra being bitten by the asp.
