Iona Miller on Zero-Point Mysteries, 1981-2008
10/2007 A key thread of reasoning behind the idea of bubble universes, which are sometimes collectively called a “multiverse,” is the finding that seemingly empty space contains energy, known as vacuum energy. Some theorize that under certain circumstances this energy can be converted into an explosively growing, new universe—the same process believed to have given rise to ours. Theoretical physicists including Michio Kaku of city College of New York argue that this might go on constantly—he has called it a “continual genesis”—creating many universes, coexisting not unlike bubbles in a foamy bath. http://www.world-science.net/exclusives/071011_universes.htm

PHILOSOPHICAL SONNET by Saint-Germain
"Curious scrutator of all nature,
I have seen gold thick in the depths of the double mercury.
I have seized its substance and surprised its changing.
I explain by that art the soul with the womb of a mother,
Make its home, take it away, and as a kernel
Placed against a grain of wheat, under the humid pollen;
The one plant and the other vine-stock, are the bread and wine.
NOTHING was, God willing, NOTHING became something,
I doubted it, I sought that on which the universe rests,
NOTHING preserves the equilibrium and serves to sustain.
Then, with the weight of praise and of blame.
I weighed the eternal, it called my soul,
I died, I adored, I knew NOTHING more."
--trans. Manley Palmer Hall in Sages & Seers, from original ms. in British Museum
ZERO POINT ALCHEMY
St. Germain was an alchemist renown for his longevity and youthful appearance. Alchemy begins and ends in the quest for eternal life. It is a spiritual technology of rebirth using natural methods that in their effect transcend nature by amplifying that which is immortal within us. It does not exist in nature but must be prepared by Art. Art is a form of manifesting, making and objectifying the world - spiritual physics.
Artists and mystics are aware of their own internal space and thus able to enter it, playing the mindbody like a musical instrument. Looking inside, they see the true nature of reality and can express that literally and symbolically. We all possess the creative potential. All creative acts are a marriage of spirit and matter, reaching down into the body as the source of our essential being and becoming.
Today, we might describe this resonance as accessing energy that regenerates the mindbody. Healing is an aspect of creativity; nature is within and without us. The Magus does not dominate reality but develops embodied psychophysical equilibrium, clarity, wisdom and compassion.Creative work originates in the body and is projected out into the world. The projections are then internalized into awareness. The bodymind of the artist is an alchemical vessel containing the creative flux and lux during the process of transformation.Awareness and consciousness form a continuous alchemical movement. The creative gold is generated and embodied in the alembic of the mindbody. The mindbody is the same substance as the Cosmos and contains and reveals its mysteries.Reality is a Brilliant DisguiseThe real-world quantum vacuum is permeated by the unobservable zero-point field with its ceaseless electromagnetic waves. Since it is everywhere, inside and outside of us, permeating every atom in our bodies, we are effectively blind to it. It blinds us to its brilliant presence yet this cler light is our cosmic root.A background sea of quantum light filling the universe exists. That light generates a force that opposes acceleration when you push on any material object. That is why matter seems to be the solid, stable stuff that makes up ourselves and the world. The underlying realm of light is the fundamental reality propping up our physical universe. The quantum vacuum contains all possible quanta and the laws of nature in a latent undifferentiated state, the undifferentiated plenum of all potential.Vacuum GenesisFrom the perspective of a beam of light the universe appears quite different. The laws of relativity are clear on this point. If you could ride a beam of light as an observer, all of space would shrink to a point, and all of time would collapse to an instant.In the reference frame of light, there is no space and time…only virtual eternity. We are entangled with the initial point of Cosmic Zero. This is the mystical unified field theory. Consciousness is Light. In this sense we are truly immortal but rarely realize it.Inner Light of SpacetimeAlchemy reduces all to this first state, the ground state of being - original experience that is timeless, infinite. The classical Void, the quantum vacuum is a carrier of information. It is an energy sea underlying all spacetime, which is the primary reality. Matter appears from interactions within this matter generating virtual energy field.Living systems co-evolve with the quantum vacuum, the groundstate and source of matter. Life evolves in a sacred feedback system between interconnected entities and the subquantal field. Mind/matter evolved from the zero-point cosmic womb, and through this common source connects with all. We are in a resonant loop with our complex environment and not actually separate from it. Intentionality propagates and can receive subtle patterns.
The energy body or the field body, along with the scalars of our holographic blueprint, connect us directly with the negentropic potential of the zero-point field. Radiant light literally emerges from this mystic void. Primordial structuring processes are common to both psyche and matter, working in the gap or empty interval between intention and action.
So, alchemy refines the way the mindbody generates and processes inherent light as medicine. It refines the aspirant's ability for tapping and amplifying Medicine Light. This primordial state is the luminous ground of our being, hidden deep in the heart of things.
All other goals are subordinate to this prime directive which includes meditative techniques for continuing consciousness after death. This Philosopher's Stone is also the Universal Medicine, the regenerative Elixir of Life. The greatest mystery is Life After Death: we don't die but continue in transcendent form. This is the secret of man and nature.
THE PRACTICE OF ALCHEMY
In the alchemical search for the God-head in matter, Paracelsus contended that matter was a living counterpart of the creating deity. A system of correspondences is the foundation of alchemy. The conception of a primal event manifested in different fields is fundamental to alchemy. The process in the retort vessel is analogous to the process of transformation of the psyche. Through alchemy, we can perceive the parallels between macrocosm and microcosm, universe and man.
The metaphorical perception of alchemy grew in the Jungian school of psychology. It emphasizes the process of psychological transformation, or individuation. The model of the vector equilibrium matrix restores a physical basis to the concept of the Philosopher's Stone. This renews the alchemical philosophy which is, like Jungian psychology, concerned with the union of psyche and matter.
There are three primary aspects of alchemy:
1. Alchemy as theory, is a comprehensive philosophical vision of the cosmos, built on the universal correspondence system.
2. Alchemy as practice may be viewed as a creative discipline, an art-form, involving one in the imaginal realm of soul-making.
3. Alchemy, as a transcendental search or quest, has the primary goal of liberation from the world. This is the knowledge of immortality, through the union of opposites.
Paracelsus described alchemy as the voluntary action of man in harmony with the involuntary action of nature. If the center of the creative process takes place in the "heart of man", his intentions take on profound significance. They can now affect, or influence, the destinies of the cosmos. Attainment of this state is known as the production of the Philosopher's Stone or Diamond Body.
B. THE PHILOSOPHICAL CONCEPT OF THE IMMORTAL BODY
The Philosopher's Stone may be equated with the Causal Body, the Resurrection Body, or the Immortal Body. It is a vehicle for consciousness to inhabit, which is qualitatively different than the Astral Body, a double of the physical body.
Alchemy strives for the experience of spiritual rebirth through the union of opposites, or the sacred marriage. The Philosopher's Stone is also a symbol of the embryonic Self. It is the product of the sacred marriage, which has been characterized in alchemy as the union of the Sun (+) and the Moon (-).
Polarized positions, or extremes, may be symbolized variously as positive-negative, male-female, god-devil, spirit-matter, mother-father, etc. This marriage creates a bond by which opposites are united in an image which transcends both original potentials. The whole art of alchemy is contained within the image of a magical or divine child.
One of the alchemical goals is to create an eternal body for post-mortal continuation of the spirit and the soul. Both the western and Chinese alchemists felt this could be accomplished in a lifetime, with the help of God, or the Self. This vessel for immortality is the Diamond Body.
Alchemy, like Jungian psychology, is a creative discipline which embraces all things from the standpoint of soul.
C. Philosopher's Stone
There is an inherent paradox in alchemy: all the while stressing redemption of the physical body, or matter, alchemy is actively striving toward creation of a subtle, immortal body, which has no apparent physical basis.
This central problem in alchemy is the spiritual redemption of the physical body. Alchemy requires resurrection of the soul of body. The challenge one encounters is to "see through" to a unified vision of mundane physical processes with spiritual values. This develops an awareness of the ordering processes inherent in matter. The solution is to visualize the physical as a metaphor for psychic transformation.
Close scrutiny of the foundations of matter ought to reveal some physical analogies to this 'archetype of the spiritual essence inherent in matter.' In alchemy, matter is perceived as a living feminine counterpart of the spiritual father or creator-god. It is an equivalent, not subordinate, principle.
In THE COMMENTARIES OF AL, Aleister Crowley corresponded matter with the goddess Nuit. In other disciplines, Nuit is known as Sapientia Dei, Sophia, Shakti, Isis, Shekinah, etc. In alchemy, she is represented by the Anima Mundi, or World Soul. Nuit, as matter, is the feminine form of Godhead. Inherent in this word 'matter' are the concepts of matrix or lattice; and mater, the mothering womb. This implies a possible dovetailing of traditional attributes of Nuit with specific geometrical systems which operate at the atomic level.
O Nuit, continuous one of Heaven, let it be ever thus;
that men speak not of Thee as One but as None; and let them speak not of thee at all, since thou art continuous!
Nuit, as 'zero' or 'naught' represents the field of potentiality.(2) By definition, She may not be represented concretely, or be observed directly and finally. Her presence, however, may be inferred.
Microphysics, by feeling its way into the "unknown" side of matter, parallels the quest of the alchemist. The goal is toward a unified field theory, an all-encompassing model between subatomic and cosmological states of matter.
An analysis of crystals in microphysics (solid state physics) might provide a basis for unifying the philosophical and physical concepts regarding matter. This geometry can describe a system or matrix of unfoldment, bridging the microverse to the cosmos.
The geometry or matrix description of a crystal can act as a "lens." This "lens" enables one to "see" or focus a projection of the physical state of matter into its spiritual counterpart.
Alchemy is the means of "seeing the Philosopher's Stone", itself; it is also a means of "seeing through" the Stone. As such, it is a form of metaphorical perception. The Stone is produced by the transformation in one's own psyche.
The Philosopher's Stone, seen as a magic crystal, is not a spiritual or psychological state, but more a magickal tool or universally applicable instrument of magic. One can attain the ultimate mystical experience through proper application of the Stone. The Stone possesses the "virtue" or healing power to influence or transform things.
The process of making the Philosopher's Stone is a repitition of the creation myth via imagery. The imagery reverses the evolutional direction. It begins with animal images, then proceeds through images of plant life to more fundamental forms. The final goal is symbolized by metal, stone, or crystal.
This language usually presents the ego in a direct line of confrontation and covenant with a single self, represented by images of unity (mandalas, crystals, balls, wise men, and other patterns of order). But according to Jung the self has many archetypal instances. The puzzling relation between self and the archetypes reproduces the ancient enigma of the many-in-the-one and the one-in-the-many.(3)
The alchemical concept of the Stone accomodates either/both a monotheistic attitude (where God is One), or a polytheistic viewpoint (which recognizes the value of the differentiation among archetypal figures). When we can distinguish among divine figures, mythic creatures, and the phenomenal world, we may orient ourselves in the imaginal realm.
The process of alchemy takes place within cetain boundary conditions. It is visualized as occuring within a vessel (i.e. a containing form or matrix). Consciousness and life must be intensified or contained by focusing one's attention. The process of reversal signifies reunion with the unconscious laws of our being. These laws also affect the formation of matter on quantum levels (in the subatomic world of protons, neutrons, electrons, etc.).
The purpose of alchemy is real-I-zation of the many aspects of the Universe. The vessel contains and co-ordinates the manifold of psychic contents.
The vessel is the "lens" or geometrical relationship between these archetypes. It is possible to restore and renew the alchemical philosophy by reuniting psyche and matter through contemporary imagery. One way of pursuing this analogy of the Stone is by examining current concepts in solid state physics.
The mathematical descriptors relevant to the concept of the Stone are already developed. Archetypal ordering processes at the atomic level form a basis for a relationship between life and its crystal counterpart. This unification of vision may be found in the diamond crystal structure.
