The First Tier and the Second Tier of consciousness are described in The Kalendar as six Squares, each of which is divided into nine panels, called Thrones. Sound familiar? This is a way of talking about the Rubik’s cube, which could be used as a magical object for contemplating the mysteries of The Kalendar.
Face One: Black* … OPPOSITE: Face Five: White*
Face Two: Red* … OPPOSITE: Face Six: Green*
Face Three: Brown* … OPPOSITE: Face Four: Gold*
Although the Third Tier cannot be depicted in a 3-dimensional puzzle of any design that I know, you can think about it as the solution which unifies the opposites (above)
Blue* … The Union of Black and White
Violet* … The Union of Red and Green
Silver* … The Union of Brown and Gold
Pretty cool, huh? This is a great example of the way that the Integral Magic system is able to make use of common objects for spiritual contemplation, with the manipulation of the object taking on new potential significance for the follower of the Magical path.
Once the essential texts of Integral Magic are published, there are many opportunities to complement them with a suite of magical objects. The objects will help to make it faster and easier and more fun to learn Lingua-U and The Kalendar, and put them into practice in an Integral Life Practice.
