There are a set of spirits that I work with which have undergone a number of distinct transformations over the course of my work with them. My identification of them as belonging together owes a great deal to this, to them having been caught up in the same series of transformation. While they did not always undergo them at the same time, the transformations rippled between them and me. Between them and me…that is the other thing that is important. These spirits have been intimately bound up with my own spiritual development.
I am a little excited to see discussions undercutting notions of a language instinct a la Chomsky seeping out into semi-popular culture. In part, because if we ought to jettison the language instinct, we ought also to jettison ideas like the collective unconscious formulated by C. G. Jung. What makes one untenable makes the other untenable, too.
I have talked about the way geometric forms manifest in spiritual work in an indirect fashion, but now I am going to talk about it more directly. Rather than observe the way in which such manifestations can be explored outside of the spiritual work, I am going to explore it from within the spiritual work. The subject of this little foray is going to be the cone.
Before focusing on the spiritual aspect of the cone, I do want to highlight how important it is to the composition of our visible world, to modernity itself. The mathematical consideration of it shapes the development of calculus and calculus shapes the course of modern science. The cone projects itself into many, many corners of our world. Its spiritual aspects are no less impressive.
