    So a bit more on dimensions. I mean this literally and figuratively... figuratively I mean a bubble, an hermetically
    sealed "flask". Literally, it is diagramed as this trinitarian shield:




    These relate also to the four elements when we consider fire as something beyond the other three.
    Notice that son and SS make a line. Including Father produces a plane/triangle. And converting this
    2-d drawing into 3-d, including God produces a solid/tetrahedron.
    None of the three in the plane connect (non est). Only through moving "up" into another dimension
    do they connect (est), through "God" or primum materiam.
    It is the same in mind dimensions - the ego mind cannot solve its problems within itself. Solution =
    another dimension. "The mind that created a problem must evolve to solve that problem." - Einstein
    The ego mind/1st attention/thinking must be still to dissolve itself into presence/no thinking/2nd attention/seeing.

    Something else I wanted to share about dimensions... I've spoken about the illusory nature of the ego when it is
    seen, being a completely psychological entity without substance (in Taoism, form without substance = dream/phantasm).
    And this ego/identity appears as a result of folding space-time, or as they say, self-reflection... the ego is a psychological
    bubble/dimension within the actual world dimension. And the ego goes further into confusion by believing its stories
    which are the next level of dimensions... the ego is a thought which produces other thoughts - dreams within dreams.
    Some of these thoughts which egos produce are religious, political, patriotic... identities within the identity - more
    fracturing and separation created by a fractured separate idea of self. In a way they are all lies... even the best intentioned
    stories. And these lies were Biblically determined to the serpent which is a symbol for mind/manas - the fruit of knowledge.
    Mind is also symbolised by the pentagram - the fifth point which rises above the four elements. The pentagram can be
    upturned or down - mind can emphasize the without or the within/silence... fold back in to the higher dimension instead
    create more mini-dimensions of thinking/knowledge. The serpent must be stilled/fixed to the tree with iron nails/will:



    Spiritually speaking alchemically, this is the fixation of mercury which is simultaneously the dissolution of the body
    through going within/meditation. Which gives me the idea that animated/double mercury is able to meditate while
    going about the affairs of one's daily life.
    These spiritual translations do not take anything away from laboratory alchemy. I don't think alchemy is just spiritual work.
    Obviously, by this thread, we are seeing how to create dimensions using minerals and metals, as in the Ark of the Covenant.
    These "two" alchemies are the same. This is why I am trying to stress dimensions.

    This is my own exegesis of Ezekiel 10
    http://niv.scripturetext.com/ezekiel/10.htm

    The Glory Departs From the Temple
    The glory is the projection of light from the temple which is the body of the magickian

    1 I looked, and I saw the likeness of a throne of sapphirea above the expanse that was over the heads of the cherubim.

    2 The Lord said to the man clothed in linen, “Go in among the wheels beneath the cherubim. Fill your hands with burning coals from among the cherubim and scatter them over the city.” And he entered my sight. And as I watched, he went in.
    The city is the body. The fire of the burning coals is fire prana and kundalini. The cherubim are four hermetic animals. The wheel is the chariot of fire or merkabah. The energy body forms this shape when the merkabah has developed sufficiently to begin initiations in the solar works and attains in projection the golden chamber of Melchiezedek in the Higher Planes at Shamballah. During these initiations which Alice Bailey called the 5th and 6th solar initiations as did Dr. Joshua David Stone , the magickian projects to the Great Pyramid in the Valley of Luxor in Shamballah and projects through the capstone stretching the silver cord.Entering sight; the magickian is afforded greater clairvoyance through the higher vibration of this golden chamber.

    http://biblos.com/ezekiel/10-2.htm



    3 Now the cherubim were standing on the south side of the temple when the man went in, and a cloud filled the inner court.
    The inner court is the Chamber of Melchiezedek before an altar in Shamballah surrounded by angels and Mahatma. In the 6th initiation the aspirant enters the golden chamber of Melchiezedek and is attuned by the Mahatma and archangels there. The floor and the walls are as a great pastel layer of clouds.

    4 Then the glory of the Lord rose from above the cherubim and moved to the threshold of the temple. The cloud filled the temple, and the court was full of the radiance of the glory of the Lord.
    This beautiful light emanates throughout the court and permeates the temple. The energy body is the City of God , the Tree of Life and the Temple.

    5 The sound of the wings of the cherubim could be heard as far away as the outer court, like the voice of God Almighty when he speaks.
    The magickian manifests wings , also in subsequent pairs.

    6 When the Lord commanded the man in linen, “Take fire from among the wheels, from among the cherubim,” the man went in and stood beside a wheel.
    The aspirant projects wearing a simple silhouette of energy appearing like a gown of linen. The aspiriant is attuned by the higher vibration of the court, the chamber within, the angels, Christ and the Mahatma assembled accepting energy from them.

    7 Then one of the cherubim reached out his hand to the fire that was among them. He took up some of it and put it into the hands of the man in linen, who took it and went out.
    The aspirant accepts a Rod of Initiation which is subtle energy . After the initiation and attunement, the aspirant goes out, returning to the body.

    8 (Under the wings of the cherubim could be seen what looked like the hands of a man.)
    9 I looked, and I saw beside the cherubim four wheels, one beside each of the cherubim; the wheels sparkled like chrysolite.
    10 As for their appearance, the four of them looked alike; each was like a wheel intersecting a wheel.
    11 As they moved, they would go in any one of the four directions the cherubim faced; the wheels did not turn about as the cherubim went. The cherubim went in whatever direction the head faced, without turning as they went.

    12 Their entire bodies, including their backs, their hands and their wings, were completely full of eyes, as were their four wheels.
    The spine is the primary tree of life but later trees manifest on each limb and every finger. The body morphs with wings. The primary eye is the third eye but the magician manifests eyes on the palms, and soles and in the centre of each stone and chakra.

    13 I heard the wheels being called “the whirling wheels.”
    14 Each of the cherubim had four faces: One face was that of a cherub, the second the face of a man, the third the face of a lion, and the fourth the face of an eagle.
    15Then the cherubim rose upward. These were the living creatures I had seen by the Kebar River.

    16 When the cherubim moved, the wheels beside them moved; and when the cherubim spread their wings to rise from the ground, the wheels did not leave their side.
    The wings are a morphing of the wheels or the chariot of fire called the merkabah or body of light.

    17 When the cherubim stood still, they also stood still; and when the cherubim rose, they rose with them, because the spirit of the living creatures was in them.
    18 Then the glory of the Lord departed from over the threshold of the temple and stopped above the cherubim.
    The aspirant's energy body morphs into a Hermetic Sphinx and into a winged angel which continues to ascend. The living creatures are in them;

    HeavenStone;..HA/GA.Arch Angel ....Green...Air ......Winged Angel with magickian's face
    MoonStone; ...Guardian Angel...........Blue.....Water....Eagle Winged
    SunStone;...... Higher Self................Yellow...Fire.....Lion Maned Aura
    EarthStone;.....Guardian Demon........Red.......Earth....Bull headed horned and hooved minotaur body
    and
    StarStone;...... Lower Self................Orange ..Fire......Serpent tail of the sphinx

    19 While I watched, the cherubim spread their wings and rose from the ground, and as they went, the wheels went with them. They stopped at the entrance to the east gate of the Lord’s house, and the glory of the God of Israel was above them.
    Each of the subtle energy aspects of the magickian can fly or project on their own in a body of light.

    20 These were the living creatures I had seen beneath the God of Israel by the Kebar River, and I realized that they were cherubim. 21Each had four faces and four wings, and under their wings was what looked like the hands of a man.
    22 Their faces had the same appearance as those I had seen by the Kebar River. Each one went straight ahead.

    Psalm 91:13
    Aramaic Bible in Plain English (2010)Upon the viper and upon the cockatrice you shall tread, and you shall trample the lion and the dragon.
    The magickian overcomes the solar works of the lion to become the angel and the dragon of kundalini to continue ascension of their human energy body.

    Perhaps the 2 cherubim that protect the ark are in fact the 2 "cerebrum" that cover the holy of holies in the brain.

    Yes, that fits nicely. Thank you for sharing.

    As above, so below, as on the right so on the left, as within so with 'out;.

    There are two angels of life and of death one on either side of the Tree of Life which is the human spine our Axis Mundi with our arms outreaching to heavens above and our legs and feet are the roots grounded upon Mother Earth.

    There are also two angels within, the angel of the sun and the Great Work and the angel of the moon and the Lesser Work.

    It follows that there are angels above and below. The one above is the conjoined genus the Higher Self and Guardian Angel. The one below is the Goetic apprentice.

    In Kabballah there is balance and dichotomy. Kabballah and Hermetic Alchemy are some of the tools to alchemical ascension.

    There remains a goal of balance. As we grow there is chaos and development then there is stability and peace but no growth. So this pattern continues eternally. The spinal chakral column is the trunk of our metaphysical tree of life, within.

    I have reflected more on these thoughts. Here is a Post Script revision of my own exegesis;
    Thanks for sharing
    This is my own exegesis of Ezekiel 10
    http://niv.scripturetext.com/ezekiel/10.htm

    The Glory Departs From the Temple
    The glory is the projection of light from the temple which is the body of the magickian
    The magickian projects from the body as a golden seed of light. This is the glory. And the temple is the human energy body transmuted. The magickian projects from the body as the lion-maned golden solar angel which is called the Higher Self. The magickian can project as the serpent tail from the lower rear rump of the sphinx was the Lower Self. The energy body is the temple. Departing is projection. These are amongst the specific projections we are called to perform to learn and to ascend the consciousness.

    1 I looked, and I saw the likeness of a throne of sapphire above the expanse that was over the heads of the cherubim.
    The circle of energy centres that manifest above the third eye's treasure are deep cobalt blue like sapphire in elemental energy colour. The Throne of God is a male elemental energy phallic nexus in the space of the perineum. The Crown of the Goddess is the reciprocal female elemental energy ring above the treasure in the scalp. There is the golden bowl which is the energy in the inner cranium. There is the reciprocal silver cord which is the thread the umbilical cord through which the energy centres are strung like cosmic beads on a divine necklace.

    2 The Lord said to the man clothed in linen, “Go in among the wheels beneath the cherubim. Fill your hands with burning coals from among the cherubim and scatter them over the city.” And he entered my sight. And as I watched, he went in.
    The city is the body. The fire of the burning coals is fire prana and kundalini. The cherubim are four hermetic animals. The wheel is the chariot of fire or merkabah.

    The energy body forms this shape when the merkabah has developed sufficiently to begin initiations in the solar works and attains in projection the golden chamber of Melchiezedek in the Higher Planes at Shamballah. During these initiations which Alice Bailey called the 5th and 6th solar initiations as did Dr. Joshua David Stone, the magickian projects to the Great Pyramid in the Valley of Luxor in Shamballah and projects through the capstone stretching the silver cord.Entering sight; the magickian is afforded greater clairvoyance through the higher vibration of this golden chamber.
    Also, the hands become eyes too. The coals are like burning energy centres of fire energy, alchemically. These centres have sight. Fire is light. The magickian develops the third eye from the golden treasure shen giving the internal light, the eternal flame. The eyes then appear in clustres around the third eye move in diverse dimensions not just before the face but in all directions. And the centre of the palm and the ball, instep and heel develop fire coals which become eyes too.

    3 Now the cherubim were standing on the south side of the temple when the man went in, and a cloud filled the inner court.
    The inner court is the Chamber of Melchiezedek before an altar in Shamballah surrounded by angels and Mahatma. In the 6th initiation the aspirant enters the golden chamber of Melchiezedek and is attuned by the Mahatma and archangels there. The floor and the walls are as a great pastel layer of clouds.
    And the son of man goes in, this is the invocation of the Christ. And the cloud fills the inner court. This is the Holy Spirit filling the the magickian. There are cherubim are the four angels of the wheel, the four hermetic angels the four principle angels of Christ;
    Michael
    Gabriel
    Auriel
    Raphael
    There is contention over which angel presides over which direction and which elemental energy. This is my own, imho and ime;
    Element Angel Colour 'Gospel' Sphinx position cardinal limb
    Air Gabriel Emerald Matthew Angel Superior North left leg Above Superior ArchAngel HeavenStone Ruby Xie Noble Earth Manifestation
    Earth Raphael Ruby Luke Bull Inferior South right leg Below Belly Guardian Demon EarthStone Emerald Jing Noble Air Power, Lift
    Fire Auriel Golden Mark Lion Right West right arm Before Chest Solar Angel SunStone Sapphire Chi Noble Water Flow, Heal
    Water Michael Sapphire John Eagle Left East left arm Behind Head Guardian Angel MoonStone Golden Shen Noble Fire Sight, Unite
    There are four wheels to let the chariot fly, the chariot of fire is the merkabah of God within each of us. The minor chakras of the physical eyes and the gonads are also wheels of the chariot. The coal is one fire. A spheroid energy centre is one, four satellite spheres in bi cardinal positions above and cardinal positions below manifest around any active sphere, then these four biforcate and become as eight. These eight become a Wheel of Life.
    4 Then the glory of the Lord rose from above the cherubim and moved to the threshold of the temple. The cloud filled the temple, and the court was full of the radiance of the glory of the Lord.
    This beautiful light emanates throughout the court and permeates the temple. The energy body is the City of God , the Tree of Life and the Temple.
    This is a recipe for Unio Mystica to become for a time before the Godhead and to ascend the consciousness up to the threshold which is the Golden Chamber of Melchiezedek within and above us all. The magickian is initiated in the Temple when it is full of golden light when the heart is full of love and compassion and tolerance and service then the magickian takes the fire from the heart to the temple of the head the forehead from which they project as a golden sublime seed of light away from the heavy debris of the body.
    5 The sound of the wings of the cherubim could be heard as far away as the outer court, like the voice of God Almighty when he speaks.
    The magickian manifests wings , also in subsequent pairs.
    And even the humblest of magickians who manifests their wings will be heard and addressed.

    6 When the Lord commanded the man in linen, “Take fire from among the wheels, from among the cherubim,” the man went in and stood beside a wheel. The aspirant projects wearing a simple silhouette of energy appearing like a gown of linen. The aspiriant is attuned by the higher vibration of the court, the chamber within, the angels, Christ and the Mahatma assembled accepting energy from them.
    7 Then one of the cherubim reached out his hand to the fire that was among them. He took up some of it and put it into the hands of the man in linen, who took it and went out.
    The aspirant accepts a Rod of Initiation which is subtle energy . After the initiation and attunement, the aspirant goes out, returning to the body.

    8 (Under the wings of the cherubim could be seen what looked like the hands of a man.)
    9 I looked, and I saw beside the cherubim four wheels, one beside each of the cherubim; the wheels sparkled like chrysolite.
    10 As for their appearance, the four of them looked alike; each was like a wheel intersecting a wheel.
    This is like a hypercube but round not square , it is circles circling other circles
    11 As they moved, they would go in any one of the four directions the cherubim faced; the wheels did not turn about as the cherubim went. The cherubim went in whatever direction the head faced, without turning as they went.

    12 Their entire bodies, including their backs, their hands and their wings, were completely full of eyes, as were their four wheels.
    The spine is the primary tree of life but later trees manifest on each limb and every finger. The body morphs with wings. The primary eye is the third eye but the magician manifests eyes on the palms, and soles and in the centre of each stone and chakra.

    13 I heard the wheels being called “the whirling wheels.”
    14 Each of the cherubim had four faces: One face was that of a cherub, the second the face of a man, the third the face of a lion, and the fourth the face of an eagle.
    The faces are the four totems of the Hermetic Sphinx. The cherub is the angel and air which lifts and ascends. The Man is the son of Earth and begins as a bull but becomes the angel. All have within the angel and the demon. The demon is selfish, the angel serves. The demon is chaotic, the angel is harmonious. The demon is rage, the angel is hope. The demon is hate and anger and fear. The angel is love and peace and wisdom.

    The seven double letters of Kaballah yield treasures and tribulations. Their balance is the trevail; the work.

    Life vs Death
    Peace vs Strife

    Wealth vs Poverty

    Fruitfulness vs Sterility
    Freedom vs Slavery

    15Then the cherubim rose upward. These were the living creatures I had seen by the Kebar River.
    16 When the cherubim moved, the wheels beside them moved; and when the cherubim spread their wings to rise from the ground, the wheels did not leave their side.

    Very cool! Especially slides 12 and 13. Thank you for sharing, Aunt Clair!

    I wish I knew more Hebrew. Before I die it is a goal of mine to learn both Latin and Hebrew fluently.

    Something you might find interest in, if you have not already found it worth studying is "The Bible Wheel".

    Really interesting stuff!
