DERIVATION OF THE TRINITY  Contd

THEREFORE…

1. 136 = 1 (1 + 3 + 6 = 10 = 1)
2. 163 = 1 (1 + 6 + 3 = 10 = 1)
3. 199 = 1 (1 + 9 + 9 = 19 = 1)

*

HENCE…

1. 1…
2. 1…
3. 1…

Within the set of whole numbers, then, we have three different formulations of One.

As all other numbers can be reduced to this set the formulation is universally binding for all numbers.

One is intrinsic…

Recognising the numerical basis of a religious doctrine is no mean feat.

It has ramifications for our thinking.

We may wish to reformulate our definition of this doctrine.

It would be remiss to regard such a notion as irrational when, by definition, it could not be more rational.

One-ness is intrinsic.

Three-ness is essential.

We may also wish to play…

…  For obvious reasons, three of anything, is traditionally depicted as a triangle…

Not withstanding our preoccupation with purely symbolic notions of dimension the triangle of number appears to have a base of points one and two and a peak of point three.

Put simply, this is because the qualities of points one and two reflect, and are summed in point three.

As this is an accumulative process it may be as well to move clockwise around the triangle.

… The One is All, yet the One is ‘three’?

The trinity is actually, a unity?

Three ‘persons’ in one?

The paradoxes and enigmas are wont to pile up when considering this seemingly curious, or counter intuitive, notion.

So, what is its basis, and why is it deemed so intrinsic?

By applying the techniques of Theosphic Reduction and Addition we may be able to glean a source for this mystery…

…Our world is comprised of cycles.

These cycles are driven by stars, planets and satellites.

Our life on earth is made possible and regulated by the cycles of the sun, the moon and the earth which work in conjunction.

One of the ways we can understand these cycles is through our use of number.

For an eco-system which relies on cycles it might be fitting to employ a number system which does likewise.

Fortunately, we do so.

Our number system employs a denary cycle.

Every ninth number we re-cycle by using a higher degree of One…

DERIVATION OF THE TRINITY

1. 1 = 1

2. 1 + 2 = 3

3. 1 + 2 + 3 = 6

*

4. 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 = 10 = 1 (1+0)

5. 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 = 15 = 6 (1+5)

6. 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 = 21 = 3 (2+1)

*

7. 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 7 = 28 = 10 (2+8) = 1 (1+0)

8. 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 7 + 8 = 36 = 9 (3+6)

9. 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 7 + 8 + 9 = 45 = 9 (4+5)

Theosophically, our number system can be seen to employ a trinary cycle with a higher degree of One after every third number at Four and Seven…

The ancients possessed a conception of numbers all but lost to modern times.

Had they not possessed such a conception nothing could have led them to the ideas which were current in the Egyptian, Vedic, and Greek, Halls of Wisdom.

What were these operations of which our mathematicians are unaware?

They are essentially of two sorts and can be designated; theosophic reduction, and theosophic addition.

Such operations are designated ‘theosophic’ for they pertain to divine wisdom.

They formed the basis of an oral instruction confided to the chosen in the name of esotericism.

*

Theosophic Reduction consists in reducing all the numbers formed of two or more figures down to a single figure.

This is accomplished by adding the component parts of numbers until only one remains.

For example, the number, Four-Hundred-and-Sixty-Four reduces to Five.

464 = 4 + 6 + 4  = 14

14 = 1 + 4 = 5

*

Theosophic Addition allows us to ascertain the theosophic value of a number by totalling  a number’s track from unity or one.

For example the theosophic value of the number five is six.

5 = 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 =  15

15 = 1 + 5 = 6

*

Theosophic Reduction and Theosphic Addition are indispensible when attempting to penetrate the secrets of the ancients.

Use of these two techniques, for example, yields an insight into that most unfathomable of religious doctrines, the trinity…
