The Flower of Life

The Cycle of Life

The fundamental energy that’s responsible for all life in the universe, including the universe itself, is consciousness. Consciousness is what animates everything in the universe down to even the smallest particle. Analogous to our computer technology, if we see the matter in our universe as the hardware, then consciousness is the software that drives the hardware. But in the case of consciousness the relationship goes much deeper than that — the software actually also creates the hardware. A better analogy would therefore be a computer simulation — for example, a videogame set in a virtual 3D world — where the software not only creates the objects inside the virtual environment, but also drives the behavior of those objects. Every object, and indeed every particle, in the simulation has a piece of the software attached to it that drives its behavior, also known as Artificial Intelligence (AI).

Similarly, in our universe even the smallest particle is in possession of consciousness that determines its behavior and how it interacts with its environment. 1 In fact every point anywhere in space-time is in possession of consciousness — including what we perceive as ’empty’ space. 2 This means, for example, that all the laws of nature are a direct result of consciousness. Like I discussed before, consciousness is to the universe what AI is to a virtual reality simulation. This is no doubt one of the reasons why many people — including scientists — are coming to the conclusion that we might be living in an elaborate virtual reality simulation; the universe might be a holographic simulation on a grand scale running inside a cosmic computer. 3

Because of the fractal nature of the universe, consciousness not only creates our reality, but our reality can also modify and reprogram consciousness. This is the built-in feedback loop that is so characteristic of fractals. What happens is that consciousness creates this virtual reality hologram, and through experiencing that virtual reality can learn and then reprogram and hopefully improve itself (become more intelligent, wiser or enlightened).

Indeed it would appear that this is the ultimate goal and purpose of consciousness: to create, to experience, to learn and to improve (modify or re-create), all of this in a continuous cycle, ultimately evolving to a state of lower entropy 4 (creating order out of chaos).


If our universe is really a virtual reality hologram — a computational simulation — then you would expect to find evidence for that everywhere. And indeed there’s evidence in nature that suggests that we do in fact live in a hologram. One important piece of evidence is the fact that we can find fractals everywhere in nature. Not only that, but the computational nature of these fractals is evidenced by the fact that we can find the number phi (φ), also known as the golden ratio, everywhere throughout nature. This is evidence for the fact that there’s a fundamental geometric and computational principle behind our reality. This fact is further backed by Vortex Based Mathematics which was discovered by Marko Rodin, and which can be used to mathematically model everything in nature. According to Rodin, everything in our reality is made up of numbers and the basic geometry that’s associated with those numbers. 5 Think of the code in the movie “The Matrix,” but in this case it’s all numbers.

Numbers are the highest degree of knowledge. It is knowledge itself. Geometry is knowledge of the eternally existent. Plato

Before I get to the really interesting things I want to discuss regarding the cycle of life that governs the entire universe, I want to first take a look at an important part of the underlying basic geometry. Because It’s important to understand that what I’m going to show about the cycle of life isn’t just based on random drawings.

As I mentioned in my post about the All Seeing Eye, a lot of what we’re discovering today isn’t new; for reasons which I won’t get into in this post, 6 humankind has ‘forgotten’ a lot of what we knew in the past, and we’re now on a path of rediscovery. There’s lots of evidence suggesting that ancient civilizations knew a lot about the underlying energy that drives our entire universe and that this knowledge was encoded in simple symbolic visual representations. An example of this is the All Seeing Eye, and other examples are the flower of life, the swastika, the yin and yang and sacred geometry. Even numerology and astrology probably come from the same basic understanding. They all appear to stem from the same basic principles that define our reality; principles which themselves stem from the fundamental energy responsible for our reality, which is consciousness.

If we start with the famous pyramid with the All Seeing Eye on top, it’s important to note that in the correct depictions the pyramid is an equilateral triangle. This is a special triangle where the lengths of all the sides are equal (x=y=z), and all three internal angles are congruent to each other and are each 60°.

Equilateral Triangle

If we take the centroid p of this triangle and draw a circle around it where the circumference C of the circle is equal to the lengths of all three sides of the triangle (C = x+y+z), then the relationship between the triangle and the circle is such that we get the golden ratio (φ) as shown below.

Golden Ratio

The length a from point p to the side of the triangle and the length b from the side of the triangle to the edge of the circle are such that the below is true:

Golden Ratio

If all of our reality is really based on this basic geometry, then this begins to explain why the golden ratio can be found everywhere in nature. This also explains why the symbol of the All Seeing Eye is often also shown with a circle, for example as seen in the depiction on the Church of St. Magdalene in Venice.

The All Seeing Eye on the Church of St. Magdalene in Venice (Photo by gnuckx)

We can even find the golden ratio in the relationship between the equilateral triangle and its circumscribed circle.

Golden Ratio

And if we take a look at the relationship between the equilateral triangle and its inscribed circle, we can see where the seed of life motif comes from. The ancient flower of life motif is made out of the seed of life.

Inscribed Circle

In the above figure the inscribed circle is in orange, and its circumference C is half the circumference of the circumscribed circle. This is a very important mathematical relationship between these two circles, because as I’ll discuss later below, there is a constant doubling process happening as we grow outwards from the centroid p of the equilateral triangle.

As you can see there are 6 blue points where the inscribed circle intersects with the median lines of the equilateral triangle. Notice that if we would connect the 6 intersection points, we get a hexagon, which is also one of the basic geometric patterns that we see everywhere in nature (snowflakes, beehives etc.).

Seed of Life

If we draw circles around each of those 6 intersection points with the same diameter as the inscribed circle, we get the seed of life pattern as you can see in the above figure. In total, the seed of life is composed of 7 circles, also an important number in sacred geometry and in the enneagram discussed later below.

Looking at the figure above, can you see the yin and yang symbol? Let me help you out. 🙂

Yin and Yang

As I will explain later, this geometric system is in constant motion (rotating and spiraling out from the center). Rotate the yin and yang symbol by 90° and you get the swastika. (Click here for a more details on this, including how to arrive at the version used by Hitler in Germany).


Just like the yin and yang symbol, the swastika is a simplified representation of the seed of life in motion. If we take a copy of the seed of life motif and rotate it by 30°, and place it back onto the original copy, we get the figure below.


If you look carefully at the above figure, you can see that it looks like there’s a vortex rotating out of the center point. And it turns out that this is exactly how the motion of energy is throughout the universe. This was discovered by Marko Rodin along with Vortex Based Mathematics (VBM). When you read up on VBM, you’ll notice that, at least so far, they’ve modeled the flow of this energy in the form of a torus (a donut shape) 7 but I think that the actual flow of life energy in reality is more like the above figure with a very small hole at the center — perhaps infinitely small; a singularity where all matter is compressed. This would also make sense in the context of the big bang theory, which I also discussed before. 8

Not coincidentally, the equilateral triangle and its circumscribed circle are also part of Vortex Based Mathematics (VBM) as can be seen in the diagram below.

Vortex Based Mathematics

The equilateral triangle is formed by the numbers 3, 6 and 9 which are very special numbers in VBM, said to describe things in the higher planes of reality. The numbers 1, 2, 4, 5, 7 and 8 are numbers that describe our physical reality — the 3D world that we live in — and describe a bounded infinity through a process of doubling. 9 If you look at the blue lines connecting the numbers, you can see that they also visually form an infinity symbol (), and this is probably where that symbol originates from. The infinity symbol is also related to the ouroboros and they both describe the same thing. 10 As explained on Wikipedia:

The ouroboros symbolizes self-reflexivity or cyclicality, especially in the sense of something constantly re-creating itself, the eternal return, and other things such as the phoenix which operate in cycles that begin anew as soon as they end.

That’s exactly what we see in the VBM diagram above. Starting at the number 1, if we apply a doubling process we will eventually return back to the number 1 and start the cycle all over again. 11

But even in the higher planes of reality, the numbers 3, 6 and 9 are also connected. Not only are they connected, but they also form an infinite cycle, although this is not depicted in the VBM diagram — and I think that this is an omission in VBM theory (at least in its current state). The reason why I think this is because the numbers 3, 6 and 9 are connected in the enneagram 12 — an old symbol that looks a lot like the VBM diagram and very likely describes the same process.

If we overlay the pyramid with the All Seeing Eye on top of the VBM diagram, the correlation becomes clear.

Vortex Based Mathematics

We then see that the number 3 is connected to creation (our physical 3D reality), the number 9 to experience (awareness, consciousness), and the number 6 to learning (knowledge). Take note of the fact that to go from the number 3 to 6, we first have to go through 9, as can also be seen in the VBM diagram (the dashed orange line). This reminds me of the famous quote by Einstein:

The only source of knowledge is experience. Albert Einstein

From the moment when I first came across that quote by Einstein around 2001, it has always fascinated me and I’ve even included it as my email signature ever since. Now I know where it comes from. We can only get to number 6 (knowledge) after we went through number 9 (experience). It’s also important to mention that the number 9 is associated with spirit or consciousness in VBM theory, so this matches perfectly. Not only that, but the number 6 has also consistently been associated with (gaining) knowledge, especially in the bible (666 the mark of the beast — the dragon and serpent who wants to share knowledge and wisdom with humankind etc.).

From the above image it’s also clear that the number 9 is the most important number, especially since it becomes associated with the All Seeing Eye, also known as the Eye of Providence which has been explained as “god watching over humankind” and “god’s intervention in the world.” Mathematically it’s also the most important number because it is present everywhere throughout the system; all the other numbers on each side of the number 9 eventually add up to nine (8+1, 7+2, 6+3 and 5+4), while the numbers connected in the doubling loop describing our physical reality (the blue line) also add up to nine (1+2+4+8+7+5=27 and 2+7=9).

Based on this, it’s very important to note that there is no central point of authority in our physical reality; the number 9 is distributed throughout the whole system. This is a very important mathematical fact that shows that nature is fundamentally a distributed system, a peer-to-peer (P2P) system with no central point of authority. The number 9, which is the source and authority of this whole system, is distributed everywhere throughout the system, in the parts and in the sum of all parts. If we want to create a truly prosperous and healthy human society on Earth for the long term, we’ll have to model it after this important fundamental understanding (so no governments and no central authorities whatsoever, but anarchy). 13

In our physical reality the only thing we know of that is present everywhere throughout all matter — even though we can’t see it 14 — is the energy known as consciousness. So again, it’s no coincidence that the number 9 is associated with experience, awareness or consciousness (spirit).

This may also be the origins of the concept of the holy trinity in Christianity, and may also be why the Eye of Providence is used as a symbol for the holy trinity (the father, the son and the holy spirit):

The Christian doctrine of the Trinity (from Latin trinitas “triad”, from trinus “threefold”) defines God as three consubstantial persons, expressions, or hypostases: the Father, the Son (Jesus Christ), and the Holy Spirit; “one God in three persons”. The three persons are distinct, yet are one “substance, essence or nature”.

According to this central mystery of most Christian faiths, there is only one God in three persons: while distinct from one another in their relations of origin (as the Fourth Lateran Council declared, “it is the Father who generates, the Son who is begotten, and the Holy Spirit who proceeds”) and in their relations with one another, they are stated to be one in all else, co-equal, co-eternal and consubstantial, and “each is God, whole and entire”.

As mentioned earlier, the numbers 3, 6 and 9 do form a trinity (the equilateral triangle) in the higher planes of reality. The number 3 might be associated with the father (the creator). The number 6 might then be associated with the son (in the bible man was created on the 6th day (Exodus 31:15), and the number 666 is also said to be the number of a man (Revelation 13:18)). The number 9 is then associated with the holy spirit. And just like in Christianity, the holy trinity are all one, and this is mathematically so, because 3+6+9=18 and 1+8=9. All 3 numbers are unified into the number 9, which is spirit or consciousness (or God, if you want). They are also co-equal, as follows from the 3 sides of the equilateral triangle that are equal in length, and the three internal angles which are also equal. And you’ve probably heard that you can only get to the father through the son (John 14:6)? Well, if you look at the diagram above, you can see that you can indeed only get to the father (number 3) through the son (number 6).

If you’re a Christian and a bit surprised by all of this, you have to realize that Christianity — and indeed all religions — are disinformation created by the elite to fool the masses in order to control, manipulate and enslave them. The true knowledge has been withheld from the masses and made occult by the elite, while they spread disinformation (sprinkled with some truth) for the masses to consume. We have all been fooled for thousands of years. For more details, read my post “Why ancient symbols are demonized.”

The relationship between the numbers 3, 6 and 9 is what I call the cycle of life. George Gurdjieff calls it the Law of Three in his explanation of the enneagram. 12 Everything else in the system is controlled by, and adheres to, this cycle. It keeps the whole system in constant motion — continuously experiencing, learning and re-creating in order to evolve to higher states of awareness. Remember that this is what the ouroboros symbolizes as well; a constant cycle that keeps re-creating itself.


The ouroboros (blue) on top of the pyramid

All of life (all of creation) follows these three stages of development in a constant loop and in a fractal manner. What I mean by the fractal manner is that the same process is being followed at all scales of creation (macro and micro, as above so below). Take a human being, for example: a human being as a single entity follows the three stages of the cycle of life from birth to death, but while that is happening, on a much shorter timescale each individual cell that the human being is made out of also follows the same three stages from the moment it is created to the moment it dies. Similarly, our planet Earth as a single entity is also a living organism, and it too follows the same cycle of life on a much longer timescale. But while it is doing that, all organisms that are part of the planet are also following the cycle of life on their own shorter timescales.

Bacterial Growth: Growth is shown as Log(numbers) where numbers is the number of colony forming units per ml, versus Time. (Source)

The three stages of the cycle of life can clearly be seen in the bacterial growth 15 chart, where they are labeled B (the Exponential phase), C (the Stationary phase) and D (the Death phase). Again, keep in mind that these stages are the same for all organisms in the universe, including the universe itself. So if we understand these stages for bacteria, we can get a pretty good idea of the universal process (remember, as above so below).

The following is a shortened explanation from Wikipedia for these phases in bacterial growth:

  • During the lag phase (A), bacteria adapt themselves to growth conditions. It is the period where the individual bacteria are maturing and not yet able to divide.
  • The log phase (B) (sometimes called the logarithmic phase or the exponential phase) is a period characterized by cell doubling. If growth is not limited, doubling will continue at a constant rate so both the number of cells and the rate of population increase doubles with each consecutive time period. Exponential growth cannot continue indefinitely, however, because the medium is soon depleted of nutrients and enriched with wastes.
  • The stationary phase (C) is often due to a growth-limiting factor such as the depletion of an essential nutrient, and/or the formation of an inhibitory product such as an organic acid. Stationary phase results from a situation in which growth rate and death rate are equal. The result is a “smooth,” horizontal linear part of the curve during the stationary phase.
  • At death phase (D), (Decline phase) bacteria die. This could be due to lack of nutrients, a temperature which is too high or low, or the wrong living conditions.

As mentioned at the beginning of this post, when it comes to consciousness, its goal is to experience and to learn in order to grow and evolve to higher states of awareness. So for consciousness, the ‘resources’ that determine the progress of the cycle of life are new experiences and learning. The correlation for consciousness with the bacterial growth stages is as follows:

  • During the lag phase (A) consciousness seeks out new opportunities for experiencing and learning.
  • Once a new opportunity is created, the cycle of life for that opportunity begins with the exponential phase (B) where consciousness starts to experience it at an exponential rate (first slow, but increasingly faster). In this phase there’s more experiencing than learning.
  • At some point the stationary phase (C) is reached where the amount of new experiences reaches a plateau and there’s a balance between experiences and the knowledge extracted from them (learning).
  • Then the death phase (D) sets in; the amount of new experiences begins to decline rapidly, and a phase of reflection sets in, until there’s nothing new left to experience and learn anymore. Consciousness eventually then moves on to new opportunities.

In the below diagram I’ve mapped these stages onto the symbol of the All Seeing Eye, which is a symbol for consciousness as I explained in a previous post, and, as I’ve shown above, is a mathematical representation of the cycle of life.

The Cycle of Life

If you look at the diagram (click on it for a larger view), you can see that the three stages in the cycle of life (B, C and D) are shown in grayscale lines. The first stage, B, starts at the number 3 of the triangle where creation begins, and goes all the way to the number 9. From the number 3 to 9, it’s all about creating and having new experiences. Then starting at number 9 we have the second stage C, where there’s more or less a balance between experiencing and learning. Stage C ends at the number 6 of the triangle, where the death phase D sets in, which is mostly about reflection and determining the lessons learned from all the experiences had during the previous phases in life. The knowledge gained will be essential for use when creation starts again at the end with the number 3; by applying that knowledge during the next creation, we get evolution and growth (under the right conditions) which is the ultimate goal of this system.

God and the life process, which is nowhere so clearly expressed as in the orgastic discharge, are identical. Wilhelm Reich in Ether, God and Devil

As we go around the circle starting at the number 3, the point of creation, the thickness of the orange line shows the amount of experiencing and learning, while the thickness of the blue line shows the desire for new experiences. So if we start at point E1 at the time of creation, we can see that the line becomes thicker all the way to point E2. From E1 to E2 there’s an exponential increase in experiencing and learning. From point E2 to E4 the thickness of the line stays roughly the same, meaning that a plateau has been reached and the amount of new experiences and learning stays roughly the same during that period. Then from point E4 back to E1, there’s a rapid decline of the amount of new experiences and learning until it becomes very small at point E1.

Notice that the opposite happens for the blue line, which shows the desire for new experiences. At the point N1 at the moment of creation, this desire is at its peak and the line is the thickest it will ever be. Going from point N1 to N2, the desire for new experiences drops rapidly and becomes very small. From point N2 to N4 it stays roughly the same, and starts increasing rapidly again from point N4 to N1.

To understand what’s going on, let’s take human beings as an example. First we will take a look at the overall life of human beings. From the moment the zygote forms in the mother’s womb, we begin at point 3 of the triangle, which is creation. The desire to experience (N1) is at its peak, while the amount of experiencing and learning (E1) is at its lowest. Then experiencing and learning starts to increase at an exponential rate — first slowly, but after the baby is born increasingly faster, as it continues to build on top of past experiences and learning. The amount of experiencing and learning then reaches point E2 where it reaches a plateau (adulthood, where growth stops and stabilizes). Meanwhile the desire for new experiences drops rapidly as well from point N1 to N2, and this makes sense, since the more the human being is experiencing and learning in life, the less the need is for new experiences. At point E3 they reach the peak of experiencing and learning, and likewise at that point the desire for new experiences is at its lowest at N3. When the third and last phase of their life begins, experiencing and learning starts to decline at an exponential rate from point E4 to E1. Meanwhile the desire for new experiences increases at an exponential rate from N4 to N1. During this phase old age sets in eventually, there’s increasingly less to experience and all that’s left to do basically is to reflect on past experiences and filtering the lessons that have been learned and the knowledge gathered. The desire for new experiences grows, and this continues until the cycle of life starts all over again. Of course, this can only happen after death.

Evidence that the life of a human being is indeed divided into three phases can be found in female fertility. The average lifespan for women is 73.5 years according to the United Nations World Population Prospects 2012 Revision. This means that each phase of a woman’s life takes 24.5 years on average. So the death phase sets in at around 49 years on average. Is it mere coincidence that this is also the age at which female fertility has completely declined? I think not. 😉

The curve describes the percentage of ovarian reserve remaining at ages from birth to 55 years, based on the ADC model. 100% is taken to be the maximum ovarian reserve, occurring at 18–22 weeks post-conception. It is estimated that for 95% of women by the age of 30 years only 12% of their maximum pre-birth NGF population is present and by the age of 40 years only 3% remains. (Source)

As you can see from the chart above, by the time the death phase (D) sets in for women, most of their ovarian reserves are gone. As far as I’m concerned, this timing is nature telling them it’s time to wrap up and begin the process of death. 16

The Cycle of Life

One last example that I want to discuss in order to illustrate how the cycle of life works concerns the relationships (romantic, friendships, business, jobs etc.) that we have in our lives. Remember, again, that the cycle of life is a fractal process; it doesn’t only hold true for an organism’s life seen as a whole, but also for all the individual processes and experiences that their life consists of. The same cycle of life also applies individually to the many relationships we can have with other people during the course of our lives.

So let’s take two people, for example, John and Mary. The moment when John meets Mary we’re at the number 3 — the point of creation; this is when the new relationship is created. John and Marry are attracted to each other, so the exponential phase (B) begins where they start to spend time with each other and experience each other more and more. Their desire for new experiences at point N1 during creation is the highest it will ever be. This is the stage at which they “are in love,” which is really being in lust. From that point on it starts to decline until we get to point N2. There we see that the amount of new experiences they can have with each other reaches a plateau at point E2, where it will remain more or less stable for a while until point E4 is reached. During that time, from point N2 to N4, their desire for new experiences is very low, because they’re pretty satisfied with each other. But we know that this cannot go on forever, just like we’ve seen with bacterial growth. At some point resources begin to deplete — in this case the amount of new experiences that can be had with each other starts to decline. In other words, things start to get boring. And from point E4 it starts to get boring at an exponential rate; we see that the thickness of the orange line starts to decline rapidly, which means there’s an increasing lack of new experiences in the relationship. This is when the death phase (D) begins, and the desire for new experiences starts to become much stronger in both John and Mary from point N4 to N1.

Now, if John and Mary are wise and know about the cycle of life, they will recognize what’s happening and acknowledge the fact that they can no longer satisfy each other’s desire for new experiences, and will take appropriate actions to prevent things from going wrong. This would mean, for example, spending less time together and allowing each other the freedom to also pursue other experiences with different people. However, if they force each other to stay exclusive, which is what society still brainwashes most people to do, then things can get out of hand, get violent and potentially become very dangerous. They will start to develop a (subconscious) tendency towards rebellion and hate for each other. And due to the fact that the desire for new experiences keeps growing rapidly from N4 to N1, John and Mary might even begin cheating on each other.

If John and Mary know about the cycle of life, they will understand that the death phase for their relationship with each other is inevitable, and that as a result, they cannot promise each other to be together for eternity, and certainly not exclusively. If they want to enjoy each other for as long as possible (really stretch out the cycle of life for their interaction with each other), they will let the flame of lust for each other burn for as long as possible. This can only be done if they allow each other the freedom to also pursue other experiences with different people right from the start, which keeps experiences between them fresh and new for a much longer period of time. It’ll take longer to get bored of each other in such a case, i.e. it’ll take longer to reach the death phase.

From the few examples I’ve discussed above, I hope that you can start to see that when we truly start understanding the cycle of life, we’ll be able to explain a lot of our reality, begin to see why things are behaving the way they are, be able to solve many of the problems we’re currently dealing with around the world, develop better and more natural ways of living together, reach a much higher standard of living, and a much higher quality of awareness and collective consciousness. It’s better to work with nature than against nature. This is especially true when it comes to our technology; most of it works against the fundamental principles of nature and as a result requires a lot of wasted effort and energy. Like Marko Rodin often mentions, once we truly understand and apply the math behind the cycle of life, we’ll be able to revolutionize our technology and energy sources.

Finally, I also hope that you begin to realize how this information can be used against us, because this is very important to understand. Once you truly start to understand this information, it’s easy to use it for unethical and evil purposes. Indeed there has been an elite who have used this knowledge against humanity for thousands of years. Because they understand this knowledge, they know exactly what buttons to press, can easily predict behavior and other processes in life, and can easily manipulate the masses to forward their agenda. The only chance humanity has for fighting back against this, is to bring this information out again in the public domain and spread it far and wide, so that everyone can have it and understand it. Once most people possess this knowledge it will be a lot more difficult for the few to abuse it against the many. And thanks to the Global Brain, the timing for this is now perfect.


  1. See my post “Thoughts on Karma and Consciousness” for references concerning the fact that every particle in the universe is in possession of consciousness. There I mention the thoughts of physicists such as Max Planck, Freeman Dyson and Eugene Wigner on this subject. ↩︎
  2. The reality is that there’s a lot of matter even in what we think of as empty space, but we’re just not capable of seeing or detecting it. Consider that humans are only capable of seeing a fraction (3.5 × 10-26 %) of the entire electromagnetic spectrum. Imagine how much exists around us that our senses and our technology simply cannot detect (not unless it enters our range of observable reality). ↩︎
  3. I recommend reading my post “The Holographic and Fractal Universe” for more detailed information about this. The thought that our universe might be a holographic projection isn’t something new, and you’ll find that even prominent physicists such as David Bohm and neurophysiologist Karl Pribram, have come to such a conclusion in the past. In the notes you’ll also find links to recent research on this topic. ↩︎
  4. Lower entropy in the sense that consciousness is aligning more with the natural order of the universe which is based on true love. For example, a lot of what I write on my blog would lead me to be burned at the stake hundreds of years ago. Today things are different. A clear indication of the progress we’ve made in the evolution of our consciousness. ↩︎
  5. For an introduction to Vortex Based Mathematics (VBM), I recommend watching the below presentation by Randy Powell (part 1 and part 2), one of Marko Rodin’s students. All the important details of the VBM diagram are discussed including the doubling process that underlies all of our reality. More can be found on YouTube.

    For more information, check out this article on or visit Marko Rodin’s website. ↩︎

  6. This knowledge was hidden from much of humankind in order to dumb us down so that we could easily be controlled, manipulated and enslaved by the few who were in the know and who abused this knowledge to forward their own agenda. For thousands of years, secret societies were among the few who possessed (some of) this knowledge. But we’re now heading into a new era for humankind, where all of this knowledge will become available again, and will remain in the public domain. It will truly empower each and every human being on this planet and allow us to finally break free from thousands of years of enslavement. ↩︎
  7. The flow of energy throughout the universe in the shape of a torus is also discussed in the documentary Thrive. ↩︎
  8. Note that matter being compressed into a very small singularity doesn’t have to mean that it physically gets squashed into a tiny space. I think that matter in the universe grows bigger and multiplies starting from a singularity through a doubling process as discussed above. Compare this with the human body. Our bodies also come from a very small microscopic singularity called the zygote. But through a process of cell doubling, it grows bigger and expands at an exponential rate until we get to adulthood. The same can be said about a giant sequoia tree that once existed inside a small seed. This is how the universe works; everything grows from a small seed or singularity. I discuss this in more details in my post “Exponential Growth in the Fractal Universe”. ↩︎
  9. This constant doubling is where the exponential growth in the universe comes from. I discussed exponential growth in details in my post “Exponential Growth in the Fractal Universe”. ↩︎
  10. According to Wikipedia:

    In modern mysticism, the infinity symbol has become identified with a variation of the ouroboros, an ancient image of a snake eating its own tail that has also come to symbolize the infinite, and the ouroboros is sometimes drawn in figure-eight form to reflect this identification, rather than in its more traditional circular form.

    From the book “Dreams, Illusion, and Other Realities” (page 242):

    The ouroboros, the snake with his tail in his mouth, is the prototype of the vicious circle. […] The “Endless Snake” depicts an ouroboros who has become one with himself. It has fallen into the mathematical sign for infinity.


  11. If we begin at the number 1 in the VBM diagram, and double it, we get the number 2. Then, 2 doubled is 4. 4 doubled is 8. 8 doubled is 16, but 1+6=7, so we arrive at the number 7. If we double 16, we get 32, but 3+2=5 so we arrive at the number 5. And finally, if we double 32, we get 64, but 6+4=10 and 1+0=1, so we’re back at the number 1. Notice that as soon as the doubling sequence reaches 64 we’re back where we started at the number 1, and have completed one cycle. This is why the number 64 is also important and can be found everywhere, for example in the Mayan calendar, the Chinese I Ching (64 hexagrams), and the 64 codons that form our DNA.

    It’s also important to note that the binary code in our computer technology is also based on a doubling sequence. So when you’re playing a 3D computer game, the whole virtual environment is actually constructed from data that is fundamentally based on a doubling sequence — just like the reality we all currently live in. This is more evidence supporting the fact that we might actually be living in a holographic simulation. ↩︎

  12. The enneagram encodes very ancient knowledge which has been repressed for thousands of years — knowledge about the exact nature and workings of the reality we live in. It seems that when Marko Rodin developed his own VBM theory, he had just rediscovered the same basic principles of our reality that are also encoded in the enneagram.
    The Enneagram

    The Enneagram

    From Wikipedia:

    The enneagram is a nine-pointed figure usually inscribed within a circle. Within the circle is a triangle connecting points 9, 3 and 6. The inscribed figure resembling a web connects the other six points in a cyclic figure 1-4-2-8-5-7. This number is derived from or corresponds to the recurring decimal .142857 = 1/7. These six points together with the point numbered 9 are said to represent the main stages of any complete process, and can be related to the notes of a musical octave, 9 being equivalent to “Do” and 1 to “Re” etc. The points numbered 3 and 6 are said to represent “shock points” which affect the way a process develops. The internal lines between the points; that is, the three-point figure and the six-point figure, are said to show certain non-obvious connections, although here very little elucidation is offered.

    As reported by Ouspensky the enneagram was introduced by George Gurdjieff to his study groups in St Petersburg and Moscow in 1916. Ouspensky records this original explication in his book of Gurdjieff’s teaching In Search of the Miraculous where the enneagram appears as Figure 44 and in further diagrams. It was presented as an ancient secret being released for the first time, the truth behind for example the Philosopher’s Stone. Ouspensky quotes Gurdjieff as saying; “The knowledge of the enneagram has for a very long time been preserved in secret and if it now is, so to speak, made available to all, it is only in an incomplete and theoretical form without instruction from a man who knows”. Gurdjieff also remarked “In order to understand the enneagram it must be thought of as in motion, as moving. A motionless enneagram is a dead symbol, the living symbol is in motion”

    The enneagram according to Gurdjieff shows the “Law of Seven” and the “Law of Three” united and so some explanation of these laws is necessary here.

    The Law of Seven or law of octaves, according to which phenomena evolves in seven steps; and the Law of Three, according to which phenomena are produced by three forces, are presented by Gurdjieff as global laws appearing on all scales and essential to his cosmology. This cosmology offers a view of how the world operates said to derive from alchemy and more ancient sources, and to complement or complete modern experimental science rather than to contradict it. According to this cosmology everything is material, including consciousness and spirit, and all matter can be assigned a “density”; consciousness and spirit for example having lower “densities” (and therefore higher “vibrations”) than for example water while for example rock has a higher “density” and lower “vibration” than water and so on.

    The Law of Three holds that three forces act on any event, which can be called Active, Passive, and Neutralizing forces, or simply First, Second, and Third forces respectively. Humanity is said to be “third force blind”, to have difficulty recognizing the third force, which may appear to us in the guise of a result or of a background environment.


  13. Anarchy is the condition of a society, entity, group of persons or single person which does not recognize authority. The word anarchy comes from the ancient Greek ἀναρχία (anarchia), which combines ἀν (an), “not, without” and ἀρχός (arkhos), “ruler, leader.” Thus, the term refers to a person or society “without rulers” or “without leaders.” It does not mean chaos. ↩︎
  14. Regarding the fact that we cannot ‘see’ consciousness, George Gurdjieff’s explanation of the enneagram mentioned above, says the following:

    The Law of Three holds that three forces act on any event, which can be called Active, Passive, and Neutralizing forces, or simply First, Second, and Third forces respectively. Humanity is said to be “third force blind”, to have difficulty recognizing the third force, which may appear to us in the guise of a result or of a background environment.

    I contend that the third Neutralizing force which humankind can’t ‘see’, is consciousness, which is connected to the number 9 and is present throughout the whole system (throughout all of creation — hence the concept of ‘god’ being omnipresent, seeing and knowing everything). The Active force is creation, which is connected to the number 3, and the Passive force is learning (knowledge), which is connected to the number 6. I explain why in my article above. ↩︎

  15. In my post “Exponential Growth in the Fractal Universe” I discuss the bacterial growth chart and how it relates to the process of growth in the universe. ↩︎
  16. It’s interesting to note that Dr. Sigmund Freud had speculated about what he called a “death drive” in humans, which was often also mistranslated as a “death instinct.” This idea never really caught on because it contradicted the pleasure principle and the desire of an organism to live. But I think that Freud was definitely on to something important. Based on what I discussed above, we can see that there is indeed a “death drive” which is part of the cycle of life and which is working more as a background constraint that guides the overall progress of life. The death phase is all about closure, where reflection and learning are central. This is why, for example, Freud would notice a repetition of (war) trauma in his patients. Any experience gained in life, which hasn’t properly been reflected upon and brought to closure, will keep demanding for closure in order to complete the cycle. As a result, his patients kept re-enacting traumatic events and kept having dreams about them. If this is true for individual experiences in life, might it also be true for the complete process of life? In other words, if we fail to properly reflect upon and learn the lessons we’re supposed to learn in life, might we feel compelled to return in another life in an attempt to achieve proper closure? ↩︎
