The single point in which all views coincide is in the
"monad". However, depending on the choice between
Probabilistic or Relativistic views, this monad will exhibit different
The monad may at times behave like a wave, this is the
dynamic view. One in which the monad is seen as a wave of probability, affecting
The other view is that of relativity, where the monad is a
static, dead particle. When viewed in this manner the monad has no
potential for consciousness, and would appear as little more than another
It is only in the dynamic view that this monad has
consciousness, indeed, the potential for consciousness.
The monad is ultimately a particle. It is a unity that
is not quite a singularity as defined by modern Physics. The monad
radiates a form of energy, which accounts for its 'wave like' properties.
This energy may be thought of as "virtual monads" that exist for a
time and then vanish. These virtual monads are created instantaneously by the
"I" everywhere in the "NOT- I".
All monads will be found to conform to these laws:
particle in existence IS in its essence, a monad. This is expressed as a subjective
"I" and an objective "NOT-I". What is not the
"I" is the "NOT-I".
"I", radiates a kind of energy. This is what is known as
"Probability Waves" and will be termed thus. Probability
waves consist of a host of "virtual monads".

Probabilistic radiation of each monad allows for infinite expression,

On the properties of the Monad
Monads possess different properties, in much the same
manner as "Quarks". In the case of the monad there are five such
properties; Consciousness, fire, water, air, and velocity. These correspond roughly
to Energy, position of rotational axis, and a velocity derived from ALL its
Consciousness is a "memory" effect. This effect
need be little more than the "memory" effect seen in some
contemporary plastics; the ability and 'drive' to return to the original
state is all that is required. The monad does, however, have one very
important difference; the monad will attempt to follow the 'path' of change. By
this I mean that the monad will seek the point of most recent change from
where ever it finds itself.
Changes occur in the angle to the rotational vector (angle
of the axis of rotation), and/or the velocity; the balance of the five elemental
properties. It is this kind of change that creates quanta of
consciousness. Note though, it is only through the 'movement' along this
path of change that consciousness can be created. A static system has no
These changes are the result of external 'forces'
(interaction with other monadic radiation), at least in the beginning, later,
after gaining experience (many changes without returning to original
state), the monad may begin to direct and create changes within itself.
When the monad has reached a state of "much
experience"(1) it will acquire yet some more properties. Know,
however, that these properties are more of the nature of synthetic, they
are the result of the interaction of the four elemental properties, consciousness,
and spirit. Not only with the "NOT-I", but, with the "I"
(themselves and each other).
These next three properties may be called; Balance,
Thought, and Awareness.
All things in nature seek to find equilibrium. A state
of balance in their working that provides the least stress. This property
is not just this state, but, also the seeking (desire).
With all of the above going on, very complex interactions
are happening. The "desire" for balance creates spurious or
temporary interaction patterns that we may call thought. These are thought fragments
Here come into play the first of what may be considered
'cognitive' properties. The monad, having consciousness, desire, and
thought, may now start to become aware of the fact that it is a single entity
and that there are others around it. It becomes aware of its own thoughts,
and desires, and may even begin to seek ways of gaining more experience. Note
that the acquisition of this property is likely to take some time, the monad
must first build a sufficient library of experience and thought fractals with
which to build awareness. Awareness implies some level of what may be thought
of as "conscious thought" in terms of 20th century language.
FIRE, WATER, AIR.
These three ideas are also the three- dimensional
co-ordinates of the monad's axis of rotation. It needs noting that here,
the dynamic or probabilistic view should be taken. For it is not the 'static'
position of the rotational axis that is important, it is the change of
position on each of these axes that will produce the interactions required.
A high-energy, leading concept, according to the ancients.
To fire is attributed the creative- will, and other like ideas. Fire is that
which leads the way. To Fire we assign the 'Z' axis of rotation, that,
which traditionally extends into space.

The 'great mother' is attributed to Water, as are many like
ideas. Water would seem to be the "great baseline". To Water we
assign the 'X' axis of rotation.

Velocity, a measure of how fast moving this monad is.
It is thought that only the slowest moving monads are participating in the
physical plane of existence. The degree or amount of Earth exhibited by a
monad is inversely proportional to its velocity. It is possible for a monad to
be anywhere at any given instant. However, monads with no Earth component are
'virtual monads', they make their change in the "NOT-I" and vanish.
As the level of the Earth property increases the monad
becomes more stable, and thus to take on a physical form.

OF MOTION AND TIME
The presently accepted concept of time is purely
relativistic, and exists as a side-effect of motion. If it were not for the
monad's probability waves and their rotation about their axis, all would be
static, and life-less. It is this added dimension of movement that drives the

the Womb; for only through Motion and in Time can events occur.
Point: now self-conscious, because able to define itself in term of above.
If we understand that here 'The Point' is in reality our
monad, we will see many things. It takes three of our monads to begin to build
a universe, further, these three are of different properties. They
must be of the three primary types of Fire (all rotation is about the 'Z'
axis), Water, and Air. When these monads form a hierarchy, in doing so the new
structure begins to move, imparting the fourth property of Earth.
As the probability waves of each of our monads interacts
with that of the others, virtual monads are created, only for an instant. But
as we are now in motion, more than one instant is available for our use.
The monadic hierarchy is able to create events and other monadic hierarchies
which may take on movement. And then form more complex structures with this
The interaction of the four elemental properties is
synergistic with consciousness in each of our monads, this creates 'Spirit'.
Spirit is no less than the synergistic interaction of
the four Elemental Properties with Consciousness. It is this interaction that
makes possible the ability of the monad to change itself. It is ultimately
this change that allows the monad to alter its probability wave and
therefore have an effect on it's "NOT-I". Further, Spirit may
interact with itself, as does the probability wave, producing a kind of ‘modulation'.
Will is a measurement of the monad's ability to alter any
of its other properties. It is an indicator of how dynamic the monad is and
thus its ability to effect it's "NOT-I". It is the measure of spirit.
(1) the use of the phrase "much experience" should be taken in a subjective
sense. There is no way of knowing just how much experience is "much
experience". This is completely individualistic, and can only be determined
by each monad for itself
