THE LIGHT OF NUMBERS - 9
9 - SPIRITUAL COGNITION
CYCLICAL PATTERN INTERLOCKING DIFFERENT WORLDS. REALISING THE PERFECTION OF LIFE. UP AND DOWN ARE BOTH THE SAME. CONSTANT CHANGE IN LIFE
How we approach the
number 9 through the wisdom of human subconsciousness
in fairy tales: "Beyond the nine mountain ranges and beyond the nine rivers".
English saying: "to be on cloud nine".
number 9 system. The 9th developmental wave is to direct the evolution of our
planet and it is the highest wave of the Mayan calendar. The Mayan pyramids had
China, there were 9 heavens and 9 parts of the sacrifice. The Ancient Chinese constructed
spiritual buildings with 9 roof levels.
The Tao Cosmic
order manifests itself through 9 forms. There were 9 floor pagodas built.
9 announces the hour of Christ's death and his departure into other spheres of
existence. "The 9th hour" is the hour of the main sacrifice in temples. The
number 9 symbolically completes the spiritual system.
The 9 is
the last (highest) single-digit number. It completes the system from the point
of view of its function.
* When we multiply by 9, we always get a number which is numerologically the 9 again. The number 9 is thus universal and perfect. It can be found everywhere and it is indestructible.
Once upon a time, 'beyond the seven mountains...' or also 'beyond the nine mountains and the nine rivers' there lived...
You know it, the fairy tales speak of seven mountains one time and of nine mountains at another time. But we never say beyond six or ten mountain ranges. The seven mountains is a meaningful message. In our Numerical Story of Creation, the 7 mirrors the principles of preparation and choosing the aim, in the pursuit of which we head towards new adventures and happiness. The nine mountains therefore means something similar. But the nine is more than the seven. It seems that, in higher spheres, there is also something like a turning point, where we prepare ourselves for and choose for ourselves a path of 'new adventures'. This turning point is the transition from the number 9 principles to the principles of the 10. The number 9 is the 'antipole' to the 6. The 9 incorporates spiritual principles that lift the human Soul towards the heights. In the number 6 principles, we learn about the matter of Earth and about matter as such. In the number 9 principles, we explore what all of that means on the spiritual level. On the level of the Soul, Spirit, heart, meaningfulness, Love...
In the number 9 sphere, we learn about spiritual Realisation of the consequences of our actions. Through achieving the highest Cognition on the symbolic level, the educated and even-tempered Soul acquires the possibility of entering into 'the 10'. Someday, when the Soul comes to Cognition, when it experiences sufﬁ cient, when it sees sense and stops yearning for escape, only then will it be ready to decide freely and wisely on its next life journey. It may be that it will choose to move into entirely different worlds, dimensions or different types of consciousness or Universe. Who knows? Various resources of ancient knowledge view the number 9 as the last compulsory stage of a human being's development, before it can obtain the opportunity of entering into an entirely new type of existence. It is a brilliant symbolism. Because the 9 is the last single-digit number.
How amazingly wise is the human subconscious mind! With the number 7 we realised the meaning of the saying 'to be in seventh heaven'. But the English language is wisely not satisﬁ ed with just that. For expressing feelings of extreme, perfect happiness and excitement it also uses the number 9 saying: 'to be on cloud 9'. Is this not simply perfect?
Beyond the nine mountains and nine rivers ... somewhere opportunities of entirely new worlds arise there, new challenges and unheard of possibilities await. But ﬁ rstly it's desirable to manage and handle the previous journey of the number 9 principles.
The amazing Mayan calendar is a beautiful example of the knowledge of the number 9 principles. The system of their calendar is a description of Cosmic, evolutionary stages. The 9th developmental wave will conduct the evolution of our planet and it's also the highest wave of the Mayan calendar. Another typical example of the number 9 symbolism is the 9-storey Mayan pyramids. Human beings must climb 9 developmental steps towards the higher spheres, towards Heaven and Light in order to reach the top. For Buddhists too, the number 9 symbolises the highest number of heavenly spirituality. One Hindu legend sees the 9 as a symbol of ﬁ re leading to a square, which forms the space border. Amazing symbolism. What might await us in the realm of the number 10 principles, behind the horizon of this Universe of 'ours'...?
In Ancient Egypt, in the biblical city of 'On', there were The Nine (the group of nine gods). Apollo's lyre has 9 strings. Ancient Germans used the 'number 9 rituals' to protect themselves from diseases. In Ancient China, there were 9 heavens, 9 parts of ritual sacriﬁ ces and 9 forms through which the Cosmic order of TAO manifests itself, 9-storey pagodas were built, etc. In the Bible, the number 9 is quite rare, but when it is there, it is really signiﬁ cant - it is the 9th hour of Christ's death. And it's the number 9 that announces Christ's exit into different spheres of being. The 9th hour is the time of the main sacriﬁ ce and offerings in a temple. It's a very strong symbolism.
The 9 completes the system. It is Universal and perfect. It occurs everywhere and is indestructible.
'Stellar nines': the 9 functions directly on the Cosmic level. We can take stellar nines as an example. Our earthly life in relation to celestial cycles, these are all number 9s. One Platonic Year lasts 25 920 years (2 + 5 + 9 + 2 + 0 = 18, 1 + 8 = 9), during which time the whole circle, 360 degrees, must be completed. And 360 degrees is numerologically again the 9. Each degree of the Stellar Year therefore lasts for 72 years (25 920 : 360 = 72). Numerologically, the 72 corresponds with the 9. The fact is that any number of degrees of the Platonic Year always lasts an amount of time, which is numerologically the number 9.
'The bodily 9s': the miraculous pregnancy of human beings lasts 9 months. How symbolic! We know that the Spirit and breathing of a being are interlocked. It's stated that the average respiratory rate of a human being is 18 breaths per minute, which is the number 9, numerologically. The average pulse rate of a human is 72 beats per minute - the 9 again. The average number of heart beats per hour is 4 320 - the 9 again. The average number of respirations per hour is 1 080 - the number 9, numerologically. In 24 hours, the heart beats an average of 103 680 times - the 9 again.
The connection of the stellar and bodily nines: in one earthly day (during 24 hours), we breathe in 25 920 times on average. Not only is it numerologically the number 9 again, but also exactly the same number to indicate the duration of one Platonic Year, the 25 920 year cycle.
It is obvious that the number 9 principles constitute a stable, Universal structure, a base which can act as a springboard for us into new directions. And it does not necessarily need to be into new spheres of existence. It seems that some Souls voluntarily choose to return into our system so that they can help in this way.
The number 9 is solid through its fundamental UNIVERSAL basis. We can always rely on the 9. In any multiplication by 9, we get a number that is numerologically the 9 again! That doesn't apply to any other number. The number 9 becomes 9 again, no matter what you do with it. The 9 is our UNIVERSAL certainty.
What can we learn from this mathematical principle on the symbolic level? It mirrors to us the principle of the spiritual inﬂ uences. If you manage to saturate, whatever it might be, with spiritual values and love, then these will return to you again on the deepest level. What astonishing and superb symbolism.
With the number 4 we realised that 1 + 4 + 4 = 9, and also that 9 = 1 + 8. These are not just some sales calculations. They are literally a living part of our living environment.
The number 9 is our UNIVERSAL certainty. The Solar System is also our certainty. After all it's our Cosmic home. And home, that's a symbol of certainty. If the number 9, on the symbolic level, had something to do with the Solar System, then our single central Sun should have 8 planets. And that's exactly how it is. 1 Sun + 8 planets = 9. Such is the composition of the number 9 regarding our homeland. The Sun is like a permanent, concerned parent that provides his 8 children with boundless care (light and warmth). It's a fact that we really see 8 basic planets.
The Solar System - our number 9 homeland (1 + 4 + 4)
Our Cosmic Story of Creation also depicted the number 8 as two 4s which complement each other and dance together in a mutually opposite, yet harmonious structure. One number 4 is in the spiritual sphere and the other one, in the opposing, physical sphere. It's a fact that 8 = 4 + 4. Can we also ﬁ nd the same principle on the symbolic level among our 8 planets?
Yes, we can. The ﬁ rst four planets in a row are the gas giants, they are big and gaseous, which on the symbolic level means 'spreadout' and thin. On the other hand, the next four planets in a row are the 'opposite', since they are terrestrial and small, in other words concentrated and solid.
The ﬁrst four planets are 'like this' and the other four conversely are 'like that'. The 9th object is the stable and reliable Sun. We can also see, from the Cosmic point of view, the Earth is the 6th (the number 6) planet. It is perfect symbolism.
The 0 is perfection too. The 0 is absolute in our Cosmic Story of Creation, all-embracing potential, which gave rise to everything. The 0 is all-embracing. Amazing once again - the 0 harmonising beautifully with our planetary system. As we've mentioned before, from the point of view of the Cosmos, Earth is the 6th planet (6), Mars the 5th (5), Jupiter the 4th (4), Saturn the 3rd (3), Uranus the 2nd (2) and Neptune the 1st (1). Followed by the 0, which is the free, all-embracing Cosmos. Perfect symbolism again.
Numerical Symbol: NINE
The number 9 principles: SPIRITUAL ASPECTS OF EXISTENCE IN GENERAL. SPIRITUAL GROWTH OF HUMAN BEINGS THROUGH CONNECTION TO INTANGIBLE SPIRITUAL SPHERE AND THROUGH SPIRITUAL REALISATION OF THE CONSEQUENCES OF OUR ACTIONS.
The shape of the numerical symbol: CIRCLE AND THE SUBSEQUENT OBLIQUE LINE SEGMENT.
Qualities of the shape: THE ABSOLUTE POTENTIAL OF THE CIRCLE, INTO WHICH THE OBLIQUE LINE ENTERS AND THEN LEAVES, WHICH BY SO DOING CREATES DYNAMIC CIRCULATION AROUND THE CIRCLE PERIMETER.
THE NUMERICAL STORY OF CREATION:
0. AT THE BEGINNING OF EVERYTHING THERE WAS UNMANIFESTED POTENTIAL OF THE ABSOLUTE
1. A SPECIFIC AND UNIFORM PURPOSE HAS EMERGED FROM THE UNMANIFESTED POTENTIAL OF THE ABSOLUTE.
2. THE PURPOSE GAVE RISE TO THE 'PLAYING FIELD' WHERE THE 'GAME' WILL 'TAKE PLACE'. IT BROUGHT FORTH THE PRINCIPLES OF DUALITY.
3. PERFECT CONDITIONS FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF LIVING BEINGS BASED ON THE PRINCIPLE OF 'THE THIRD ONE IS ABOVE THE TWO' WERE CREATED. DUALITY PERCEIVED FROM THE THIRD POSITION, THE INTERCONNECTING POSITION OF DISTANCE AND IMPARTIALITY. DEVELOPMENT, ACTION, BALANCING.
4. CONSCIOUS BEINGS TRY TO BECOME ACCUSTOMED TO DIFFERENT SPHERES OF EXISTENCE IN A CYCLICAL PATTERN.
5. THE PROCESS OF EXPLORING SUBSTANTIAL AND INSUBSTANTIAL REALMS IS NEVER-ENDING, OPEN AND LARGELY INDIVIDUAL. EVERY HUMAN IS A UNIQUE, CREATIVE BEING. A HUMAN BEING IS COMPRISED OF THE DIVINE SPARK AND HUMANITY.
6. HUMAN BEINGS LEARN THROUGH RESIDING IN MATTER ON THE PLANET EARTH. THIS CREATES THE NECESSITY OF LEARNING THE MATTER PRINCIPLES AND SUBSEQUENTLY LEARNING FROM THE CONSEQUENCES OF OUR ACTIONS.
7. MASTERING THE PRINCIPLES TAUGHT BY EARTH REQUIRES IMPLEMENTING PROCESSES OF PRECISE AND CONSCIOUS GOAL SETTING DURING DESCENT INTO THE SPHERES OF MATTER. INTENTIONAL ENTRY INTO AN UNFAMILIAR ENVIRONMENT.
8. LIFE, THAT'S A CYCLICAL RESTORATION. DEATH AND REBIRTH ARE THE EQUIVALENT OF EACH OTHER. LIFE TEACHES US ABOUT TRANSFORMATIONS, ABOUT INTERCONNECTING DIFFERENT WORLDS IN UNISON. REALISING THE PATHS OF DEVELOPMENT AND TRANSFORMATION. REALISING THE PERFECTION OF BOTH SPHERES.
9. SPIRITUAL GROWTH OF HUMAN BEINGS TAKES PLACE THROUGH CONNECTION TO THE INTANGIBLE SPIRITUAL SPHERE AND THROUGH THE SPIRITUAL REALISATION OF THE CONSEQUENCES OF OUR ACTIONS. BY REACHING THE HIGHEST LEVEL OF COGNITION WITHIN THE NUMBER 9 SPHERE, THE SOUL GAINS THE OPPORTUNITY TO ENTER INTO THE NUMBER 10 SPHERE.
