We shall start this discussion by defining the major terms.

EXISTENCE. Any manifestation, experience or event.

MONAD. The
fundamental particle of existence. The monad occupies every point in space.
The monad is expressed as a subjective "I" and an objective
"NOT-I".

CONSCIOUSNESS. The ability
to experience. A state of awareness. Implies some level of cognitive
ability. But, may also be result of change from external forces.

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 properties.

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 it's "NOT-I".

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 sub-atomic particle.

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:

1. Every 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".

2. The "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".

3. The "I" can be affected by the probabilistic radiation of another "I".

4. The "NOT-I" is the state of probability (or universe) in which the "I" finds itself at any given instant (Plank time: 6.63 X 10 ^-27 seconds).

5. Monads
evolve. When a monad is created it begins to take on 'experience', as it
gains this experience it may participate in progressively more complex
hierarchies.

Expirence may be a collection of “persistant” virtual monads.

6. Every geometric point in space is a monad at some level of evolution.

7. Monads tend to participate in more complex structures called 'Hierarchies'.

8. The Probabilistic radiation of each monad allows for infinite expression, but, no "I" may separate itself from it's "NOT-I".

Monadic behavior is defined by the following rules:

1. Monads tend to form hierarchies. Hierarchies to form aggregates, and aggregates to form progressively more complex structures.

2. All aggregates are composed of hierarchies, and are themselves hierarchies.

3. For every hierarchy there is a governing hierarch.

4. Hierarchies extend infinitely, into both the large and small.

5. Hierarchies are created, evolve, and die over time.

6. Every hierarchy is composed of a host of smaller, less evolved hierarchies.

7. Every hierarchy is a component of a larger, more evolved hierarchy.

8. As the structure of a hierarchy becomes more complex, so does that structures composite probability wave.

9. Probability waves interact. They form complex interference patterns and may even interact with themselves.

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 movement vectors.

CONSCIOUSNESS

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 consciousness.

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.

Balance.

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).

Thought.

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 (fractals).

Awareness.

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.

To this element is attributed 'mind', that which leads us to ever greater heights. To Air we assign the 'Y' axis.

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.

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 universe.

Consider this fragment of Crowley's "Naples Arrangement."

1. The Point: Positive yet indefinable.

2. The Point: Distinguishable from 1 other.

3. The Point: Defined by relation to 2 others.

4. The Point: Defined by 3 co-ordinates: Matter.

5. Motion(Time)--He', the Womb; for only through Motion and in Time can events occur.

6. The 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 'new' material.

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
