The Brotherhoods' Cosmology
By Richard Kieninger
This presentation is based on a statement attributed to Dr. White in The Ultimate Frontier: “It is valuable for you to understand nutational motion because it is the very key to the secrets of the universe.”
As you study nutational motion and how it relates to the seven planes of existence, you can push the upper limits of your awareness and perhaps penetrate the “secrets of the universe” more quickly as a result. There are sentient beings functioning on each of the seven planes of existence, and their bodies are differentiated from each other by the nutational rate of the atoms on each plane.
Even though a man may no longer function in a physical body after death, he can still function in another body of another plane of existence. Actually, a man while incarnate consists of four bodies at the same time and place. There are comparatively large distances between molecules, and so our four bodies (each on a different plane of existence) readily interpenetrate one another. These bodies do not interfere with each other since they are of different nutational rates.
Now in order to better understand what nutation is, let's start off with an analogy of the behavior of basic particles.
The axis of a top that's spinning will have a slight wobble which rotates slowly in a direction opposite to that of the top's spin, and it's called a precessional wobble. The axis of the Earth also has a precessional wobble which takes about 26 thousand years to complete one cycle. We see a top and the Earth as solid bodies; but when we get down to the sub-atomic level of electrons, protons, and photons of electromagnetic energy, they are not solid at all. These tiny so-called particles are but swirls of energy. Perhaps the best way to visualize them is like the way a smoke ring looks as the eddies of air describe a doughnut-shaped form.
All matter and all energy are comprised of such structures. They are really just eddies in what is called “basic energy”. Another term for basic energy is the Ether, which acts like a non-particulate, frictionless fluid. Eddies that travel in a straight line comprise electromagnetic energies, which move at the speed of light. Eddies which rotate in orbits comprise matter.
In addition to being this doughnut-shaped eddy, so-called particles of matter tumble around in their orbits, which makes it difficult to imagine one as appearing quite like a top or the Earth since these latter two are gyroscopically stable in comparison.
Light exhibits a curious behavior in that it seems like particles at times and like waves at other times. As a photon of light (one of these tiny doughnut-shaped eddies) travels through space at the speed of light, it runs up against an inherent barrier in the Ether of which it is formed. The net result is that the photon is annihilated into a waveform, which spreads out as a wave of electrical force in one direction and as a magnetic force that spreads in another direction at 90 degrees to the electric wave. These two waves then collapse back in upon themselves to form the doughnut-shaped ring again. It chatters along through space in this way by alternating rapidly between a ring-shaped “particle” and an electro-magnetic waveform, which it can do for billions of years. The higher the energy that originally drove the photon, the more frequently it bucks against the upper speed limit imposed by the Ether, giving the photon wave a higher frequency and a shorter wavelength.
Every particle on the physical plane and every photon of electromagnetic energy on the physical plane has precisely the same nutational rate regardless of its spin or energy level. Chemical and temperature changes do not affect the nutational rate. The nutational wobble is similar to the precessing motion of a top or the Earth but is at a much higher frequency. The Earth precesses once every 26 thousand years, but basic particles on the physical plane—namely electrons, protons, neutrons and photons—nutate at the fantastic rate of 7 billion times in a billionth of a second.
To again quote Dr. White: “There are seven planes of existence in the universe, and each of the seven planes of existence consists of atoms and quanta (photons). Each plane is differentiated from the others by the nutational rate of the matter and energy composing it. Therefore, there are seven nutational rates, one for each plane of existence. (Each rate is double the frequency of the one below it, and there are no blends or intermediate tones of nutational particles.) No scientific instrument on the physical plane can detect or measure the presence of the higher, more refined planes of existence. Atoms and energy of one nutational rate are not en rapport, as-it-were, with those of a different nutational rate. Inasmuch as the nerves composing man's five physical senses are made of atoms of the same nutational rate as those of any other physical instrument, these senses are also unable to perceive the higher planes. However, certain powers inherent in Mind can provide the means whereby the upper planes may be seen.
The lowest plane is the Physical Plane, which has the nutational rate of all physical matter from gases and minerals up to all plants and animal bodies, including the human body.
The second plane is the Etheric Plane of existence, which is two thousand times denser than the physical plane, and therefore its power to bind physical structures is tremendous. Gravity and magnetism are binding forces which have their origin on the Etheric plane. Every living thing has a Vital Body, which is the etheric pattern for plant, animal and human physical bodies and gives stability and order to their growth year after year, as well as making wounds heal. As the Vital Body grows, the physical body conforms through genetic processes.
The third plane is the Astral Plane, where human Egos reside when they're not living in a physical body. This third plane is where so-called heaven and hell exist, although really they are different mental aspects of the same place. Human spirits of varying degrees of advancement are operating on the Astral Plane all around us, though most of us are unable to perceive them because the nutational rate of Astral bodies is different from that of our sense organs. The third plane is also the level of the animal life essence, which is an energy that exists among the frequencies that comprise the astral electromagnetic spectrum and vitalizes animal cells.
The next higher plane, the fourth plane of existence, is the Mental Plane, which is where those human beings who have learned everything of the first four planes work and reside while they wait to move on to the Angelic Plane. This is also the plane of the life essence of the Human Ego, where human beings' individuality, continuity of consciousness, and indestructibility of Egoic identity are manifested. The fourth or Mental Body is highly developed in an advanced person who has accumulated much knowledge and is seen as a large, colorful aura of coruscating energies by clairvoyant people. Masters function and communicate with one another on the Mental Plane rather than risk the communication avenues at the Astral Plane level.
Angelic intelligences exist on the fifth plane. They create planets and evolve physical life forms, step-by-step, through a conscious evolutionary process under their complete control. Man, as well as all the lower animals, was evolved species-by-species from simple to increasingly complex organisms by the Angelic Host. Racial variations can occur through natural selection to improve a species' chance of survival, but a new species can only be created by Angelic design and their mental powers.
On the sixth plane, Archangels have the job of creating matter and mentally holding together the physical universe. Every particle of matter and virtually every particle of energy on the lowest six planes of existence has been created by Archangelic Mind and continues its existence via the sustained mental precipitation of Archangelic thought. There are a few notable exceptions, however. The kinds of energy particles created by the Archangels on the lower six planes include and are analogous to the electromagnetic spectrum of the physical plane of existence but not all frequencies involve the Life Essences or Mind and Love energies.
The seventh plane is the Celestial Plane of existence, where new Egos are created, laws that govern the universe are formed, and galaxies are organized. Life Essences are special energies, having nutational rates appropriate to the specific plane of existence upon which they respectively function. These Life Essences which motivate living beings—plants, animals, men, Angels, Archangels, and Celestial Beings—are created exclusively by the Celestial Host. Mind is also an exclusive creation of God, as well as the energy we call Love, which is a power emanating from God and permeating the Universe. All phases of existence respond to these two great powers, Mind and Love.
The first task of Archangels is to create hydrogen, which they do in vast tonnages. Then they mentally bring that hydrogen together into a primordial star which compresses this gas by gravity, which operates according to Natural Laws. Eventually this forms a glowing star which begins to give off energy as the result of nuclear fusion reactions. The resulting nuclear furnace builds higher elements. At a certain phase in the evolution of a star, there's quite a bit of ejecta in the form of dust particles and gases thrown out into space.
Using the laws of gravity and magnetism, Angels consciously coalesce these materials, which are in the space around a star, into planets, having determined what size the planet is going to be and what elements they want to come together. This is done mentally by imaging an etheric pattern of what they want to create.
Similarly they create self-replicating Vital Bodies which give form to the various species of life on a planet. Thus, one-celled plants and animals are created and evolved through various species in a conscious way until appropriately evolved physical bodies are available that human Egos can operate in. Then the first incarnations can begin on a planet.
The best way that human beings can show gratitude to the higher beings who played Their parts in our creation is to take responsibility for our further evolution and strive to reach the levels of advancement of our creators. Thus, it was designed that we are given the opportunity to play a vital part in Creation at this level.
