The Descent of the Supramental consciousness is a fourfold process, arranged in such a manner that each member of Sri Aurobindo’s Solar Line has a particular task which Thea indicates by number power (9/6/3/01). She refers to Sri Aurobindo by the number power of 9, the Transcendent Divine, or the Father Principle. His yoga did the ‘first imprinting’ which brought a shift in the human consciousness, i.e., the tendency to take ‘the escape route’ toward an earlier and immature stage in evolution became blocked. It was not destined that he undertake this yogic work alone; to reverse the direction that all spiritual paths had taken the last two thousand years, Sri Aurobindo needed the help or the ‘shakti’ provided by the Mother (the Cosmic Divine, the 6), the Mother Principle and Thea, (the Individual Divine, the Third or the Daughter principle). Volume 3 of The New Way is a celebration of the ‘great mystery of the Trinity’: the birth of the last member – the Fourth, (the 0, the ‘womb’), the Male-Child of many mythic traditions, which survives across the ages in the deep recesses of the soul.
‘If you only knew the magnificence of the 3, 6 and 9, then you would have a key to the universe.’
Nikola Tesla (1856-1943)
‘As we know, he (Leonardo) developed a passion for geometry and spent the entire last portion of his life in this occupation… we find that the inconclusive notes he left on the great discovery he is supposed to have made on St Andrew’s night, 1504, regarding squaring of the circle, cover only the geometrical-mathematical aspect of the problem, though they do not further scientific purposes because he failed to present his hypothesis in geometrical formulae. However the drawing we are analyzing offers us something much more important: it resolves what until now has been a purely abstract problem in the concrete dimension of the human consciousness. It solidifies the square and the circle in the human being and shows the way in which squaring can be done as a transformative process which results in the rooting of the circle in the square (p. 321)
