Brilliant analysis ... thank you! ...As the Cassiopaea constellation crop circle has shown from the great digging done here, these symbols can and do sometimes hold several layers of meaning simultaneously. This new one, thanks to hollenoaea's side by side posting of the FOTCM symbol, looks very much like an expansion of the FOTCM design. If its the real deal, it may not have been constructed to suggest that of course, but one possibility is that this circle is suggesting some kind of growth to the mix, or an added element maybe like the 'third eye' or pineal gland; psychic up-link.
Even more so though, it reminds me of 'The Law of Three' in the 4th Way literature - and what the C's have said in prior sessions about finding the 3 meanings in things.
The following section is from the Paleochristianity wiki PDF which is chock full of concise definitions of relevent terms and concepts. https://paleochristianity.org/documents/FOTCM_Casswiki.pdf
Maybe the section below holds some clues. But even if it doesn't, there seems to be a whole lot here that has much bearing on where we are, and what we're doing:
Law of Three
The Law of Three is fundamental to Fourth Way cosmology, where each phenomenon springs from the interaction of three forces. The idea is also central to the Cassiopaean Experiment, where context or consciousness determines alignment in relation to the fundamental duality of the cosmos.
In Fourth Way cosmology, the fundamental law is called the Law of Three, or the law of the three principles or the three forces. According to this law, every phenomenon – from the cosmic to the sub-atomic – is the result of the converging action of three forces:
• The active force, also called the Holy Aﬀirming.
• The passive force, also called the Holy Denying.
• The neutralizing force, also called the Holy Reconciling.
The human mind is geared towards thinking in terms of a single force or at most two. People are generally unaware of the ’third force’ or ’third principle’ in a given phenomenon or situation, and as such they are not able to form an objective understanding of it. Rigid ’formatory’ or ’mechanical’ thinking tends to only see ’yes’ and ’no’, ’true’ and ’false’, or ’good’ and ’bad’. Introducing the notion of third force as a representative of context or consciousness can broaden the mental process.
Still, we may not give fixed meanings to the three forces. The three forces are active, passive and neutralizing only with respect to the phenomenon at hand. Thus one and the same force may play very different roles in different phenomena and no phenomenon is isolated. The Law of Three deals with the single occurrence, but no single occurrence occurs that is not part of some process. The Law of Seven deals with how a process moves through distinct stages in time.
George Gurdjieff describes the Law of Three and the question of the third force as follows52:
Gurdjieff goes on to describe the Ray of Creation, wherein the three forces of the Absolute meet, creating worlds where the three forces no longer act as one. In a repeating process, the three forces then meet, giving rise to the next order of worlds, wherein the number of forces is doubled. This process proceeds to create a series of seven cosmoses (beginning with the Absolute as the first), where the number of forces acting on a cosmos is also the number of laws to which it is subject. The more laws, the more mechanical the worlds of a cosmos.
Boris Mouravieff, in his Gnosis trilogy, also relates the three forces to the creation of the world. Emerging with the creation of the Universe, each force represents one of the three conditions conceived by the non-manifest Divinity before the creation of the Universe:
• The passive force corresponds to the static condition.
• The active force corresponds to the dynamic condition.
• The neutralizing force ensures the maintenance or equilibrium of creation.
In the first volume of Gnosis, Mouravieff writes:
The formulation ’The higher blends with the lower in order to actualise the middle’ , is clear in the following: the sperm merges with the ovum to create the embryo or alternatively the sexual drive is inhibited, giving rise to ‘sublimation’ or ‘complex’, a teacher relates with a pupil ensuring transmission, etc.
In other examples, the third force is a catalyst or arbiter which determines the outcome of the encounter of the active and passive forces. For example, flour and water become bread only when bonded by fire, plaintiff and defendant have their case resolved only through a judge, the soul in potential asserts itself over the body through the application of the Work.
Work on the self
The Law of Three is of practical importance in self-Work. By studying onseself, one can learn to distinguish the three forces in the functioning of one’s machine. One can also recognize the absense of the third force by inertia in one’s life – by observing that one is stuck. Such observation shows the need for a new element which can enter as the third force. It could be knowledge, it could be work on one’s body or emotions; or, it could be that the need to ”pay all in advance” is not being fulfilled, and must be before further progress is possible.
George Gurdjieff describes self-study and self-Work in relation to the Law of Three as follows:
The Cassiopaeans stress the need for giving back in order to receive. Taking without giving eventually results in a blockage, regardless of the amount of energy expended in other ways. Relating this to the above quote, it is an instance of the third force being missing. Giving back can take many forms – it depends on what is asked for. In the context of this group, a large part is helping out with our common projects – e.g. discussing and sharing information on the Cassiopaea Forum, editing Signs of the Times to help keep it active as a lighthouse for the world, contributing to other projects – or helping to provide the means which others can use to do so. It can also be a matter of dedication – of not being able to receive more until one puts in practice, or sincerely utilizes, what one has already been given.
So indeed, "we will do what we will do" but our doing will be more STO-oriented in the results of creating the life fractalization that is present in this plane if we know more about two main forces in relation to this 3rd one which is the most important in order to keep things to develop in creative STO tendencies -The neutralizing force ensures the maintenance or equilibrium of creation.
In other words, this is how I understood it - one needs to be "elastic" in its fractalization towards constant co-creation while discovering the magic; at the same time, it is essential to be able to let it go and let it be rediscovered again and again with any new entry, and not to hold on it and not constrain it, but rather to lose the threads and connectivity to the "place of resistance" which is, regarded from fragile creative reality, less risky to produce destruction, what is much better in terms of energy distribution and rational use here in 3D, than forcing the "good" things upon those who are still unable to realize the power of the 3rd force from within.
And that means to be able to detect and "surf" with your body and mind as the waves are created and as the wind blows and in that surf to observe, love, and cry seeing the masses "down under" grouping around a few cornerstones of their new "ideologies", one needs to get used to that ... the saddest for me is that moment when it is time to let go the creation we brought to life in this plane ... we can't take with us on our journey all those we feel are part of us unless they are ready even to want to join us ... and even then they might decide differently, and we need to accept that in love and light of creative fractalization that is "moving" us around this universe ... feeling of joy and sadness keeps the balance of other two forces within us alive, so while still here, we also can still feel week and human ...
