Modern Day Chaos Theory: A theory on instability, dissolution,
decay and turmoil. The theory to find order and determinism within apparent randomness of order or disorder.
Esoteric Chaos Theory: The Diametric Poles. A Battle
between Labor and Chaos. The development of psychic energy and the broadening of consciousness, or through ignorance, the
dissolution of such energy and the betrayal of the Chalice. JPC.
There is the underlying assumption of the inter-relatedness
of everything in the universe, for as Chaos Mathematics shows us, what seems random is actually CHAOTIC and has a higher "order"
that can be perceived from a great enough perspective. From this arises the life force, the tendency for matter to accrue
intelligence. According to the Oxford English Dictionary, the word "chaos" is Greek in origin. It's original meaning was:
"a vast gulf or chasm; the neither abyss, empty space, infinite darkness, the first state of the universe." In modern English,
this has been refined to mean "the 'formless void' of primordial matter, the 'great deep' or 'abyss' out of which the cosmos
or order of the universe was evolved." The popular interpretation of the word as being a synonym for "disorder" is a recent
and somewhat misleading development. Both order and disorder are themselves manifestations of the Primal Chaos. www.magma.ca
The dictionary definition of chaos is turmoil, turbulence,
primordial abyss, and undesired randomness, but scientists will tell you that chaos is something extremely sensitive to initial
conditions. A chaotic system can actually develop in a way that appears very smooth and ordered.
Determinism is the belief that every action is the
result of preceding actions. It began as a philosophical belief in Ancient Greece thousands of years ago and was introduced
into science around 1500 A.D. with the idea that cause and effect rules govern science. Sir Isaac Newton was closely associated
with the establishment of determinism in modern science.
Ilya Prigogine showed that complex structures could
come from simpler ones. This is like order coming from chaos. Henry Adams previously described this with his quote "Chaos
often breeds life, when order breeds habit". Henri Poincaré was really the "Father of Chaos [Theory]," however.
One of the most interesting issues in the study of
chaotic systems is whether or not the presence of chaos may actually produce ordered structures and patterns on a larger scale.
It has been found that the presence of chaos may actually be necessary for larger scale physical patterns, such as mountains
and galaxies, to arise. The presence of chaos in physics is what gives the universe its "arrow of time", the irreversible
flow from the past to the future.
In the real world, there are three very good examples
of instability: disease, political unrest, and family and community dysfunction. Disease is unstable because at any moment
there could be an outbreak of some deadly disease for which there is no cure. This would cause terror and chaos. Political
unrest is very unstable because people can revolt, throw over the government and create a vast war. A war is another type
of a chaotic system. Family and community dysfunction is also unstable because if you have a very tiny problem with a few
people or a huge problem with many people, the outcome will be huge with many people involved and many people's lives in ruin.
Chaos is also found in systems as complex as electric circuits, measles outbreaks, lasers, clashing gears, heart rhythms,
electrical brain activity, circadian rhythms, fluids, animal populations, and chemical reactions, and in systems as simple
as the pendulum. It also has been thought possibly to occur in the stock market. www.mathjmendl.org/chaos/#intro
Each labor is a battle with chaos. Bro 542.
It is impossible to harmonize labor without psychic
energy. Bro 32.
Entering upon labor, let us beware of weakening in
action. Through ignorance it is possible to be filled with thoughts which enfeeble and impede the broadening of consciousness.
To imagine Earth without workers is to see a reversion
to chaos. AUM 322.
When all was as yet Chaos (Kon-ton) three spiritual
Beings appeared on the stage of future creation: (1) Ame no ani naka nushi no Kami, "Divine Monarch of the Central Heaven";
(2) Taka mi onosubi no Kami, "Exalted, imperial Divine offspring of Heaven and the Earth"; and (3) Kamu mi musubi no Kami,
"Offspring of the Gods." SD1 214.
"Nature abhors Vacuum" said the Peripatetics, who comprehended
perhaps, though materialists in their way, why Democritus, with his instructor Leucippus, taught that the first principles
of all things contained in the Universe were atoms and a vacuum. The latter means simply latent Deity or force; which, before
its first manifestation when it became WILL -- communicating the first impulse to these atoms -- was the great Nothingness,
Ain-Soph, or NO-THING; was, therefore, to every sense, a Void -- or CHAOS. SD1 344.
Pralayic darkness of chaos and non-being. SD1 656.
Then chaos again -- the Pralaya. As this life-impulse
(at the seventh and last round from planet to planet) moves on it leaves behind it dying and -- very soon -- "dead planets."
Formula IV - Lead us from chaos to Beauty.
This formula is presented in the form of a symbol - one which is in such constant movement that it is most difficult to
describe or to make it live before you. There lies before the investigator a square or oblong, composed of a kaleidoscopic
mass of inchoate colors, moving, pulsating and in constant indescribable confusion. Superimposed upon this square is a radiant
sun with a penumbra composed of the seven prismatic colors; these radiate from the sun in regular rhythmic bands and produce
a marvelous blaze of color. The background of the square appears to have its confusion of colors shown of a heavy, brilliant
kind and quality; the scheme of beauty emerging (even if it appears as superimposed) is translucent and delicate and radiantly
living in hue. The heavier background can be distinctly seen through the translucence. This formula differs according to the
polarization of the one who visions it and who studies it. DINA2 305.
"As above, so below"; harmony is the great law of nature.
Harmony in the physical and mathematical world of sense, is justice in the spiritual one. Justice produces harmony, and injustice,
discord; and discord, on a cosmical scale, means chaos -- annihilation. IU1 330.
The sevenfold light of the Father brought from chaos
into the ordered day His purpose and His plan. The seven supreme Gods bent to this purpose and with united will ordained the
Plan. Old Commentary. EA 430.
Our Earth, being a non-sacred planet, is in process
of becoming a sacred planet. This means an interim of upheaval, chaos and of difficulty. EA519.
This Ray of Ceremonial Magic will consequently have
a very profound effect upon the physical plane, for not only is this plane coming under its cyclic force but at all times
its planetary Logos has a special effect upon it; the Raja-Lord of this plane is what is occultly termed the "Reflection in
the Water of Chaos" of the planetary Logos. TCF 467.
Urusvati knows how incorrectly chaos and the battle
with it are understood. The very concept of chaos was born in remote antiquity. The classical thinkers defined chaos as primordial,
unmastered matter. Later, there came into being a symbolic image of a point manifested in the circle of the Unmanifest. Such
an image is correct, and yet it causes misconceptions. One could conclude, by this symbol, that the Unmanifest, or chaos,
and the manifest are completely separate. Many think this way, and find comfort in the belief that they exist outside of chaos.
In reality, everyone is subject to the action of chaos,
which penetrates into each human heart. One cannot say that these influences are known only to the lower organisms. All are
under assault by this unseen enemy. The difference is that a low organism attracts such influences, whereas the elevated consciousness
resists the uninvited intruder. We have said that cruelty, rudeness, and ignorance are nurseries of chaos. Dangerous epidemics
arise around these hearths.
You can observe how during times of upheaval human
consciousness is changed. The gates to the spiritual stronghold open, and waves of chaos pour in unopposed, and poison the
organism. Thinking is changed, logic disappears, and honesty is destroyed. Isolated achievements are engulfed by the waves
of chaos. SMD3 605.
The astral or emotional bodies of human beings (which
constitute the astral body of humanity as a whole) are today in a state of chaos, and are swept by ancient desires, ancient
and deep seated selfish attitudes and by ancient hatreds. EXT 139.
It is advisable to observe the methods of the invasion
of chaos. Many suppose that the very concept of chaos excludes any system. A representation of chaos as completely formless
will be untrue. Even in each life it can be observed how subtly chaos creeps in. It intrudes as an actual decomposing force.
"The Invasion of Chaos" could be the title of an extremely instructive book of observations. Bro 474.
A split consciousness occurs more often than people
suspect, and cannot simply be attributed to bad character or bad habits. It often occurs during a temporary blacking out of
consciousness, when, as some researchers believe, the consciousness comes in contact with waves of chaos and the abnormality
results. This observation is undoubtedly sound.
People usually do not study the normal state of consciousness,
and therefore do not learn about its abnormalities. We advise the study of human consciousness, so that the many kinds of
abnormality will be more easily recognized. SMD2 284.
There is much chaos on the plane of desire. DN 107.
The waves of chaos! FW1 589.
Evil is of chaos. SMD2 389.
War between the dragon and the powers of evil, or chaos
on one side and the gods on the other. SD2 384.
Will stem the tide of evil and avert the possible difficulties
that lurk in the darkness of the present chaos. EXT 516.
The disorder of chaos. SMD3 605.
The "Spirit of Chaos and Disorder" refers to the mental
perturbation which it led to. It is the sensual, attractive, magnetic principle which fascinates and seduces, the ever living
active element which throws the whole world into disorder, chaos, and sin. SD2 104.
Chaos is a state of war. SMD3 264.
Each labor is a battle with chaos. Bro 542.
In chaos are rooted the seeds of evil, which are suppressed
by hard experience. But at the present time there is an unprecedented number of obsessed persons. Darkness also desires to
assert itself. Heart 77.
In itself chaos is not emptiness at all, but it is
so far removed from the human consciousness that its approach already constitutes a loss of the guiding principle. Such a
deadly principle is sensed as emptiness, and in it is contained no small danger; equilibrium is disturbed, and suicides and
various kinds of insanity occur. FW2 266.
Formless and immobile factors of chaos attach the consciousness
to illusory places. One must intensify one's realization of reality in order to recognize the falseness of Maya. FW2 281.
A traitor cannot live long in the world of matter,
and when he crosses into the Subtle World, being entirely without life-giving energy he is sucked into chaos and is doomed
to disintegration. FW1 609.
Someone has said, "Do not drive energies to the point
of madness." Such a warning is not far from the truth. One can picture to oneself the frenzy of energies, wrongly overstrained,
broken and abused. In such chaos is it possible for the heart not to be atremble? AUM 453.
The great wisdom of thought is a shield and a guard
against chaos. Thought actually rules over the fury of chaos. AUM 95.
It must be understood that the return to chaos is,
first of all, inexpressibly painful. FW1 609.
Chaos seethes in the depths of consciousness. AY 22.
Fortunately for you, you only feel the attacks of chaos
and do not see its murky movements. FW2 30.
There is no human imagination that can picture the
chaos of the cosmic battle! FW1 450.
Only chaos can conceal from man the treasure which
rightfully belongs to him. The sounding of harmony conquers the confusion of chaos. Aum! 82.
There are no frightful outbreaks of chaos where the
spirit is striving toward the higher worlds it soars above the waves of chaos. AUM 22.
Chaos cannot tolerate construction. One should direct
attention to the basis of thought in order not to be exposed to the whirlwind. AUM 74.
One need not be surprised at the continual attempts
to rebel against the law of order. The force of chaos is like a maelstrom, and weak consciousnesses easily fall victims to
such an epidemic. Indeed, one should look upon the influxes of chaos as infectious epidemics. AUM 163.
On the ordinary wheel, in all outer affairs, Saturn
controls, and we consequently find ourselves today in a state of chaos and trouble. EA 172.
Evil should be opposed, as a manifestation of chaos...
Evolution is the antipode of chaos. AUM 283.
Formula 4. Transition from chaos to ordered Beauty.
Relation of the world of effects and the world of meaning. Then relation to the world of causes. The nature of karma. Progressive
evolutionary creation. DINA2 305.
Chaos, or of Light with darkness. AUM 292.
Evil should be opposed, as a manifestation of chaos.
Darkness and chaos cannot endure anything constructive.
It is impossible to intensify energy without labor,
and each labor is a battle with chaos. Bro 542.
Only submergence into the darkness of chaos pushes
aside the entire Fiery Image. FW1 383.
Each incongruity and imbalance is a sign of chaos.
The Future Coming of the Avatar:
Naught can arrest His approach, and none may say Him
nay. To the darkness of our sphere He rideth alone, and on His approach is seen the uttermost disaster, and the chaos of that
which seeketh to withstand.
Greater the chaos becometh; the major center with all the seven circulating
spheres rock with the echoes of disintegration. The fumes of utter blackness mount upwards in dissipation. The noise discordant
of the warring elements greets the oncoming One, and deters Him not. TCF 748.
The major weapon now being used by the combined Forces
of Evil is chaos, disruption, lack of established security, and consequent fear. The potency of these evil forces is exceedingly
great because they belong to no one group of people and to all the ideologies. The chaos produced by indifference, the chaos
produced by uncertainty, the chaos produced by fear, by starvation, by insecurity, by watching others suffer innocently, and
the chaos produced by the warring and conflicting ambitious elements in every nation (without exception) - these are the factors
with which the Master R. is attempting to deal; the task is one of supreme difficulty.
The entire rhythm of international thinking has to
be altered, and that constitutes a slow and arduous task; the evil personalities which, in every country, are responsible
for the chaos and uncertainty, have eventually to be replaced by those who can work in cooperation with the rhythm of the
seventh ray, and thus produce ordered beauty. EXT 668.
