Elaine, looking rather serious, asked, “Gabriel, are we to address you as Baal or as Gabriel, to be proper, I mean?”
“Elaine, it does not matter how you address me. In exoteric circles, names are more for the benefit of the person addressing, than being addressed. What is important is that you listen and remember my words exactly as you hear them. It is a good practice to learn, as it removes confusion in day to day communication, but is critical when discussing Sacred Knowledge. If you are a sloppy listener, one of your personas will substitute false knowledge into the instructions, making it difficult to properly contemplate and absorb such Teaching later. More questions,” Gabriel responded?
“Gabriel, I have never read or heard a similar explanation as to the relationship between Good and Evil. I understand that the Occult Schools teach that Evil personalities, usually conscious inhabitants of an astral plane, consciously chose to be in active rebellion against the Good. I grew up with the teachings of the Western churches concerning Adam, Eve, Satan the serpent, Eden, the Apple, and so on. I know about Iblis and the Djinn. I am familiar with the tales from Egypt, Sumer, Persia, and the Indian continent. But, what you are teaching is something much bigger and much more important. As you have provided a rational and simple explanation, which is directly linked to conscious creatures. So my question is, ‘Why hasn’t anyone discovered such in the past, or if they did, make it known to the world,” asked Celestine?
Tristan and Gabriel could not help laughing. Tristan spoke, “We are not laughing at you, dear Celestine. We are laughing, because this question eventually arises during serious study with a group of students. And when the answer is provided, no one wants to believe the simplicity of the answer. Surely, the answer must be more than this? We started laughing, because a long time ago Gabriel and I made a bet as to which of you would eventually ask the question. I chose you, Celestine, Gabriel chose another. The reason we started laughing is that we simultaneously remembered such bets and how ‘human-like’ it really was. We always find it funny when such competitive humanness arises, even in Cosmically Significant Beings. Celestine, without humor and surprise, immortality would be bland and intolerable.
The simple answer is twofold. First, Sacred Knowledge is not frequently divulged to seekers in its pristine form. Some Schools say they are concerned that it will be misused by Satanic Egos or misunderstood. Some Schools do not possess the Sacred Forms, but only the theological or philosophical approximations. Some Schools feed pabulum to the students, keeping the meat for the Hierophants. Many Schools tend toward dogmatism, honoring past thinkers more than recent ones.
The reason Gabriel and I are different is that our School is the first School properly understanding the true version of the Tower of Babel, both metaphorically and scientifically. Remember, our discussions about signal-noise averaging and human ideas? This discussion was based upon insights introduced into our Order by our Gabriel himself. Such insights opening our eyes so too more clearly see the hidden structure and purposes,” finished Tristan.
“What my friend says is true. But, our Order owes much to Tristan for his original concepts as to the structure of space, notions of time, discreteness, transfinite and not infinite, and so on. Without his understanding, our Order would not have risen so to occupy the position of a ‘Pristine Esoteric School.’ Our Order has merged scientism with mysticism,” noted Gabriel.
“Celestine, the second answer to your question is, oftentimes, Sacred Knowledge is placed within a mythical story so to not be lost over time. This is done by introducing an obvious internal inconsistency into the story. Many thousands of years later, when the Schools are forgotten, a man or woman hears such stories and for some reason attunes to the inner message. He or she studies and finds the error and so is able to accurately reconstruct said messages. The proper preserving of Sacred Knowledge in the physical is important,” said Tristan.
Gabriel began speaking again, “I am sure some of you may believe that my explanation of the fragmentation and rebuilding of the Original Godhead, eliminates the possibility of an Absolute God. I want you to understand something very clearly. Whether an ultimate GOD ‘exists or does not exist’ nor ‘neither exists nor does not exist’ outside of this universe is an unanswerable question for everyone. All that we know for sure is that the Grand Metric contains the Ever-Radiating 5Q+1 Qualia. Some of our Order believes that the 5Q are the five fingers of the Unknown God touching our universe; and the last Quale is the path to what is forever Beyond. At our level of consciousness, the question is not relevant or useful.”
