The Moving layers
The lower levels corresponding to what are called ‘the elements’ – thus the vibrational layers lower than the firewall are static. The cones move around because we move around, but other than that we have a ‘sphere’ that is to all intense and purposes one connected layer of energy.
But what appears to happen is that the inner centre of the universe – the aether level where the systems are stored is split into a succession of spheres which are free to move . This is what is meant when you hear of the ‘Movement of the Spheres’.
Plato described this in the Timaeus.
The spheres are not fixed relative to one another but can move about freely within the Egg.
The Chinese, quite separately from the Greeks and Plato, have long recognised the concept of the ball within a ball and have carved absolutely exquisite ivory ‘puzzle balls’ symbolic of the belief that the spiritual world is formed of levels and cells and these levels form balls which rotate independently from each other. The carved pieces occasionally contain an enormous number of balls within balls. Each of the balls is carved without cutting the previous outer ball open, as such they are a work of enormous patience and skill.
They are ‘holy’ objects.
Because the spheres move around, which system and thus which set of attributes our Higher spirit comes into contact with differs – I hesitate to say over time, because time has no meaning here, but in the course of the procession.
Thus at one time Saturn might be quite close to you, then maybe Mars – Intelligences remember not physical planets. These are said to have an ‘influence’ on us only in the sense that they are ‘nearer’ to our Higher spirit. Nearer usually means that the Ultimate Intelligence is not in the way! If we imagine the outer ring to be static and the inner spheres to be moving, you can see that our Higher spirit has to wait for them to come figuratively ‘overhead’ before any communication can take place.
