Conspiracy by Naze-Melnyk Conspiracy by Naze-Melnyk
"The Law of Octaves was first suggested by Pythagoras in ancient Greece. Having observed that the eight notes of the conventional Occidental musical scale were governed by definite mathematical relationships, Pythagoras proceeded to create a whole cosmology based on 8s. His work was the first attempt in history to unify science, mathematics, art and mysticism into one comprehensible system and is still influential. Leary, Crowley and Buckminster Fuller have all described themselves as modern Pythagoreans.

In China, roughly contemporary with Pythagoras, the Taoists built up a cosmology based on the interplay of yang (positive) and yin (negative), which produced the eight trigrams of the I Ching, out of which are generated the 64 hexagrams.

In India, Buddha announced, after his illumination under the Bodhi tree, the Noble Eightfold Path. Patanjali subsequently reduced the science of yoga to eight "limbs" or, as we might say, eight "steps."

The game of chess appeared, somewhere in the East, with a grid based on 8x8 squares.

Kepler discovered the laws of planetary motion serendipitously, while trying to make the planets fit into the Pythagorean octave.

In the 1860s, English chemist John Newland showed that all the chemical elements fall into eight families. Since Pythagorean mysticism was unfashionable at that time, Newland was literally laughed at and rejected by the Royal Chemical Society. In the 1870s, with much more detail than Newland, the Russian chemist Mendeleyev proved once and for all that the elements do, indeed, fall into eight families. His Periodic Table of the Elements, an octave of hauntingly Pythagorean harmony, hangs in every high-school chemistry class today. (The Royal Society later apologized to Newland and gave him a Gold Medal.)

Nikolai Tesla invented the alternating current generator which unleashed the modern technological revolution after a series of visions in which, among other things, Tesla "saw" that everything in the universe obeys a law of Octaves.

Modern geneticists have found that the DNA-RNA "dialogue"—the molecular information system governing life and evolution—is transmitted by 64 (8x8) codons.

R. Buckminster Fuller, in his Synergetic-Energetic Geometry, which he claims is the "co-ordinate system of the Universe," reduces all phenomena to geometric-energetic constructs based on the tetrahedron (4-sided), the octet truss (8-sided) and the coupler (8-faceted with 24 phases). Fuller argues specifically that the 8-face, 24-phase coupler underlies the 8-fold division of the chemical elements on the Mendeleyev Periodic Table"

above from RAW's 'Octave of Energy'


Number 8 represents infinity. its has the profile of the Möbius strip. in fact the Möbius strip — a distorted one — is a circle. (8)is an expression of non-duality. It reveals the Unity of all polarities, creating a state of Oneness, joining the whole and the part, the masculine and the feminine, expansion and contraction, spirit and matter, etc. . All is completely intertwined, infinitely. The 8 is a spiritually significant symbol of balance and union. The Buddhist philosophy of Tantrism also is expressed by the 8 shape. 'Tantra' is 'continuity'; the word derived from the root ‘tan’, meaning to extend… extend continuously, to flow, to weave. The continuum is descriptive of the Nature of Reality, by physicist David Bohm ”a single unbroken wholeness in flowing movement.”

Therefore 8 represents a completion, like the circle, but on a new level, or another octave, an end and a beginning. The 8th day, is the beginning of a new week. In nature every 8th wave arriving at the the sea shore is bigger than the rest. in the same way, in music, the 8th note is another octave.


I am using the word 'conspire' in its original sense from Latin 'conspirare' literally "to breathe together," from 'com' - "together" + 'spirare' - "to breathe"

Notice the modern word 'spirit' (which is a sub-word in 'conspire' 'respire' etc) is from the Latin 'spiritus' meaning - "soul, courage, vigor, breath," related to 'spirare' - "to breathe,"

This concept of the word 'conspire' i.e. 'to breathe together' together with the concept of 'essence', for me equates strongly with the concept of Yoga - literally 'to unite'. The focus in Yoga of the in/out breath as being a fundamental truth (analogy for the subject/object 'conspiracy' which creates the manifest UNIverse) resonates perfectly with these concepts!

If you aren't aware of Walter Russel you really should check out thoughts on this subject. He built an octave periodic chart of the elements back in the 1920's that predicted the weights of many as of then undiscovered elements. Combining this with his this mystical and metaphysical insights was the subject of his book the Universal One. [link] [link]

Sorry about the delay in response, I finally found the time to answer your question!

No, this is not about the new world order, in fact it is a near-opposite concept! :giggle: However this does add delicious contradiction to further the yin/yang overtones...

I am using the word 'conspire' in its original sense from Latin 'conspirare' literally "to breathe together," from 'com' - "together" + 'spirare' - "to breathe"

Notice the modern word 'spirit' (which is a sub-word in 'conspire' 'respire' etc) is from the Latin 'spiritus' meaning - "soul, courage, vigor, breath," related to 'spirare' - "to breathe,"
Distinction between 'soul' and 'spirit' (as "seat of emotions") became current in Christian terminology (e.g. Greek psykhe vs. pneuma, or Latin anima vs. spiritus) The meaning - "supernatural being" is attested from c.1300; The meaning of "essential principle of something" (in a non-theological sense) is attested from 1690, common after 1800. Plural form 'spirits' - "volatile substance" is an alchemical idea, first attested 1610.

This concept of the word 'conspire' i.e. 'to breathe together' together with the concept of 'essence', for me equates strongly with the concept of Yoga - literally 'to unite'. The focus in Yoga of the in/out breath as being a fundamental truth (analogy for the subject/object 'conspiracy' which creates the manifest UNIverse)resonated perfectly with these concepts!

In the drawing, there is an eightfold emanation which refers to the Octave of Energy [link]

Number 8 represents infinity. its has the profile of the Möbius strip. in fact the Möbius strip — a distorted one — is a circle. (8)is an expression of non-duality. It reveals the Unity of all polarities, creating a state of Oneness, joining the whole and the part, the masculine and the feminine, expansion and contraction, spirit and matter, etc. Everything is One and nothing can be separated from anything else. All is completely intertwined, infinitely. The 8 is a spiritually significant symbol of balance and union. The Buddhist philosophy of Tantrism also is expressed by the 8 shape. 'Tantra' is 'continuity'; the word derived from the root ‘tan’, meaning to extend… extend continuously, to flow, to weave. The continuum is descriptive of the Nature of Reality, by physicist David Bohm ”a single unbroken wholeness in flowing movement.”

Therefore 8 represents a completion, like the circle, but on a new level, or another octave, an end and a beginning. The 8th day, is the beginning of a new week. In nature every 8th wave arriving at the the sea shore is bigger than the rest. in the same way, in music, the 8th note is another octave.

I very much enjoyed the synchronistic irony of the word 'conspiracy' in it's most commonly used sense, as you pointed out!

Well you're not ! Im sorry my explanation was probably a bit wordy, I was trying to explain as precisely as I could what I meant!

The point I suppose is that although we worry about 'conspiracy' (in the political sense) and see it as a destructive force, we forget that all of reality is a conspiracy between the experiencer and the 'thing' being experienced and is in fact a positive creative force that can (and should) be utilised!
