A beautiful mind

Human consciousness reflects an alchemical marriage:

As the union of opposites that create our awareness, Seshat and Thoth are really reflections of each other. So in Metatron’s Cube the geometry of Seshat has 7 circles that form a hexagon:

And the geometry of Thoth has 13 circles that form a hexagram:

The 7/13 ratio refers to “mind” which is also called the “soul”. This star pattern is most simply expressed in the centred polygonal numbers—more specifically, the best place to start is the centered hexagonal number sequence. This pattern permeates the living body as the energy we call life.

According to the traditional theory of left-brain or right-brain dominance, each side of the brain controls different types of thinking. Often people are said to prefer one type of thinking over the other. For example, a person who is “left-brained” is often said to be more logical, analytical and objective. A person who is “right-brained” is said to be more intuitive, thoughtful and subjective.

Later research has shown that the brain is not nearly as dichotomous as once thought. For example, we now know that abilities in subjects such as mathematics are strongest when both halves of the brain work together. Today, neuroscientists know that the two sides of the brain collaborate to perform a broad variety of tasks and that the two hemispheres communicate through the corpus callosum.

Indeed, the pop-psychology notion of a left brain and a right brain doesn’t capture their intimate working relationship. For example, the left hemisphere specialises in picking out the sounds that form words and working out the syntax of the phrase, but it does not have a monopoly on language processing. To compliment the left brain, the right hemisphere is more sensitive to the emotional features of language, tuning in to the deeper rhythms that carry emotion, tone and attitude.

So while the stars above describe head awareness, this pattern also appears in the heart and gut. Most people are not aware that these lower energy centres provide them with constant guidance—often prompting us with empathetic or instinctual insights that aren’t recognised by the brain. We ignore these feelings at our peril and we can all remember catastrophes when we overruled our instincts.
