The modern scientific history of the Global Grid starts with the work of a researcher named Bruce Cathie. Though he is not commonly known in UFOlogical circles, his work is of paramount importance. Cathie writes about very complicated mathematical ideas as though they were as simple as grade-school arithmetic, then humbly insisting that he "isn’t a scientist or mathematician."

In the midst of this complexity, his work is utterly brilliant, but it leaves all but the most fastidious readers in the dust. So, in this chapter we will look at how this man and his theories fit in to our overall discussion, which is the Great Cycle and how it relates to the dimensions and consciousness units as we know them.

Cathie grew up in New Zealand, which is situated “Down Under,” near Australia. He was working in the military when he had the first of a series of UFO sightings. For obvious reasons, he became very highly interested in the fact that he was seeing these craft in clear sight, and wanted to know more about them. Being on a large ship at sea, he was able to quite clearly see for a long distance around him, and it was over time that he began to notice that there was a seeming regularity to the flight path of the UFOs.

This regularity fascinated him, so Cathie decided to pursue as much knowledge of it as he could uncover. He carefully investigated different people’s sightings and tried to figure out which way the UFOs had been going. Over time, he realized that there was, indeed, a pattern present; it appeared that the UFOs were following certain specific straight-line paths that were always the same.

The pursuit of this data later led him to the work of French researcher Aime Michel, who had been studying UFOs for many years and had determined some of the standard flight paths that they would follow in various parts of Europe. UFO sightings would occur time and time again along these "tracklines," and Michel determined that the average distance between these lines was 54.46 kilometers. When converting this over to nautical miles, Cathie discovered to his own surprise that the tracklines were exactly 30 nautical miles apart. Again, 30 is a fundamental "harmonic" or frequency number.

If this doesn’t seem important, or appears nothing more than a coincidence, it is important to remember that a "nautical mile" is exactly one minute of arc on the Earth’s surface. Sixty minutes of arc, or sixty nautical miles, would then equal one degree of arc, and as everyone knows there are a total of 360 degrees in any circular or spherical body. Since the Earth itself once may have had a 360-day year, and Hoagland’s team demonstrated this same degree measurement system used on Mars, it is safe to at least assume the ubiquity of the use of 360 degrees for a circle. We know that 360 is one of the most fundamental "frequency numbers" in the Universe, and its derivation may have been a direct result of the observations that could be made surrounding its natural existence on the Global Energy Grid.

Again, this is speculation, however let’s look at a few facts. First of all, in future chapters we will take a look at Carl Munck’s work, known as "archeocryptology." This work unquestionably demonstrates that the Ancients were using a 360-degree system when building their monuments on Earth. Hoagland’s team discovered that the distance between the "Face" and the "D&M Pyramid" amounts to precisely 1/360th of the pole-to-pole diameter of Mars. This discovery led to many other stunning breakthroughs that would only come about in a 360-degree based system. In Part Three of this book, we will point out the fact that the Earth year seems to be a key timekeeper in the Solar System, locking in and describing many other cycles.

In the case of Cathie’s discoveries, we find that the lines of magnetic force that made up the Global Grid are always 30 arc-minutes apart. Based on this, we might wonder if it is not simply a system of maps that the UFOs are using to travel, but rather a visible system of energy lines. If this is true, the adaptation of 360 degrees to a planetary sphere may simply be an observation of the organization of its lines of force. This might also help to better explain why we have seen this number in so many other places as well. So, from Cathie’s discoveries, we know that every half-degree of arc on the Earth’s surface was a potential UFO trackline, for a total of 720 latitude lines and 720 longitude lines.

Says Cathie:

I found that by using units of 30 minutes of arc latitude north-south, and 30 minutes of arc longitude east-west, on my Mercator’s map, a grid pattern was formed into which a great number of UFO reports could be fitted. I eventually had a map with sixteen stationary and seventeen moving UFOs plotted on grid intersections and tracklines.

Having satisfied myself that my reasoning and plotting were not false, I considered that I had good proof that New Zealand, possibly other countries, and probably the whole world, were being systematically covered by some type of grid system.

Thus, when one looks into the history and origin of Cathie’s work, that person invariably sees a map of New Zealand with a series of straight lines on it. That might prove as a stumbling block to Americans, simply because it has not been done over a map of New York State, for example. However, it is a suitable and definite system that Cathie was observing, made more interesting by its identical connection to the work of Aime Michel, the French UFO researcher who also discovered "tracklines" in Europe.

The next major item of interest in Cathie’s work was an object that was photographed clear at the bottom of the sea, at a depth of 2,500 fathoms, or 13,500 feet, by the naval survey ship Eltanin. The object was located in an area 1,000 miles west of Cape Horn. What this ship photographed is what appears to be a large metal staff coming straight up out of the sea bed, with an ascending spiral of small bars coming off of it at right angles to the original.

The below image could be thought of as a series of crosses spiraling upwards.

The entire shape has a very obvious artificial, geometric design; the distance between each set of bars is the same, and the width of each set is the same.

The seven bars strongly suggest a relation to Octave-based harmonics, with the smaller bars at the top completing the idea. Furthermore, the end of each bar ends in a small sphere, as though it was intentionally polished into that shape. The officers of the Eltanin tried to insinuate that it was nothing more than a marine organism, but when Cathie pressed one of them on the topic, he admitted that it looked like a genuine artifact. Obviously, no one desired this knowledge to get out to the public, as it crossed into the lunatic fringe with such things as UFOs and pyramids. But Cathie was determined not to let this one slip by; instead, he saw it as an object of great importance. It would later become a crucial piece of evidence in discovering the map of the Global Grid.

Obviously, in Cathie’s time there was no submarine that could possibly have gone clearly to the bottom of the entire ocean, below the point where the continental shelf drops off. This object was obviously fashioned by some sort of intelligence, and Cathie himself had seen and heard reports of UFOs that would fly directly into the water. He also had a sighting of a UFO that fired a glowing, rodlike "object" into the ocean.

This object did not glide forward on its descending path in an arc as you would expect, but rather followed a precise straight-line path, apparently violating the natural laws of acceleration that should affect a body in free-fall when it has an initial velocity at the time that it was released. This led Cathie to believe that the UFO had precisely aimed the object to land on the sea floor at a distinct point, and that the object could very well be the same as the one that he had seen a photograph of. Thus, he concluded that the photograph from the Eltanin showed an object with all the hallmarks of intelligent design of one form or another, and most likely not of humankind.

The next thing that caught Cathie’s attention was that the object itself appeared to be fashioned like an antenna, as though energy of some sort was going through it. This was further supported by the idea that the direction of each bar could correspond to a direction of energy; each bar seemed to be approximately 20 degrees offset from the one beneath it. So, Cathie thought all of this through, and realized that there had to be some kind of a connection to the UFOs he was seeing that seemed to effortlessly travel under the sea as well as in the air. But what could it be?

The answer came when he realized that this object could well be an antenna or a focuser for the same global energy formation that he was now beginning to chart out through the flight paths of UFOs. He was able to obtain the coordinates that the Eltanin was on when it made the photograph, and thus was able to deduce the exact position of the object, which he then started referring to as an “aerial.”

Cathie’s work only gets more and more intriguing as it progresses. From this aerial along with his other coordinates that he developed, he was able to figure out a simple, planet-wide form for the shape that the energy lines the UFOs were traveling on. In a true Eureka-style frenzy of insight, he grabbed his child’s toy ball and graphed out the formation with a felt tip pen; a picture of the ball is given on the back of his first book entitled Harmonic 33.

The ball illustrates a series of circles that surround the planet, and those circles intersect at certain distinct points.

The theoretical positions for Grid Poles "A", "B" and "C" in the northern hemisphere are as follows:

Grid Pole "A" = Latitude:      72 degrees 25' 44.6812" north
Longitude:   89 degrees 58' 59.4336" west
Grid Pole "B" = Latitude"     78 degrees 25' 07.0046" north
Longitude: 104 degrees 59' 24" west
Grid Pole "C" = Latitude:      75 degrees 32' 18.7692" north
Longitude:   95 degrees 58' 07.1695" west

The Poles will be in reciprocal positions in the southern hemisphere.

Perhaps at this point it should not surprise us that these points perfectly illustrate a cube and octahedron within a sphere, where its points are defined by the intersections of a series of perfect circles. Point A represents the true magnetic north pole, whereas point B represents the more ideal “grid pole.”

Once again, we are seeing two of the geometries in our “consciousness unit” forms emerging on the Earth, entirely through the graphing of the flight paths of UFOs and an apparently artificial object located on the sea floor. Since this time, Cathie has produced several books, and the degree of precision that his grid has to such things as the siting of nuclear power plants, UFO sightings, ancient sites and other paranormal phenomena is highly significant. This is covered in much better detail in Cathie’s books, such as The Energy Grid.

In the early stages of his work, Cathie believed that this Grid energy was essentially being created and upheld by the “aerials” themselves. (He would later rescind this point.) He believed at the time that the entire Global Grid was built by the extraterrestrials, and that it was somehow responsible for balancing the energy on Planet Earth. He theorized that the extraterrestrials were frantically going around and repairing their grid whenever they could get the chance, desperately trying to balance our electromagnetic and magnetic disturbances from things like underground nuclear testing. Cathie believed the energy we created in these cases could tear the Earth to pieces if we were not given outside assistance. Thus, Cathie believed, it was a very valiant service that the visitors were providing. And, even though we can see that they did not "build" the Grid per se, these "aerials" certainly could represent their technological efforts to balance it.

Over time, as we just briefly went over, Cathie began to make some serious connections between this grid and the energy that it produces. Without question, his single greatest contribution to the future technology of human civilization is his "cracking" of the code behind the Unified Field Theory of Physics. This theory, as we have stated in the past, would unite gravity and electromagnetism among other things, giving us the opportunity to create gravity with electricity, producing propulsion systems similar to those found in UFOs.

Einstein’s own equation of relativity gets very close to this Unified Field in and of itself. Almost everyone knows that the equation reads as follows: Energy equals Mass times The Speed of Light (C) squared, or E=MC2. What Einstein hoped to do was to solve this equation for the Speed of Light alone. He believed that the value for mass could eventually be substituted as a measurement of light. If this was done, then all of Creation could be expressed as being made up of Pure Light -- mass and energy entirely a function of Light. This is the true "unified field" that Einstein was searching for.

As amazing as it must sound, Cathie solved this problem. In the Grid, he discovered an expression of Mass that was phrased in terms of the Speed of Light. (At the end of this chapter, we will print his solution. Further information can be found in his publications.) However, even though Cathie "cracked the code" of the Unified Field Theory, what is actually more interesting and important to us is the discoveries that he made along the way. As Cathie approached the solution to the puzzle, he unearthed many fundamental discoveries that forever change our understanding of "sympathetic vibrational physics," and the precise numbers involved in studying these universal vibrations that determine the behavior of "zero-point energy" or aether.

The Speed of Light as we now know it is measured in seconds. One of Cathie’s initial discoveries involved coming up with a different way to measure time, in order to equate it more precisely with the harmonics of the Earth’s Grid itself. Right now, our system of seconds works quite well for us, counting in a 60-based system. We have a day of 24 hours. Cathie discovered that the harmonics of the math for the Grid become much simpler if we have a day of 27 "grid hours" instead of our usual 24. This is simply done by factoring in an 8 to 9 ratio- in other words, for every eight hours in our current system, there are nine hours in the "harmonic" system. Since this is a very simple adjustment, it certainly is possible that this is a natural aspect of the Universe- in other words, both the 8-based system and the 9-based system will show different types of harmonics. Eight is the basis of the Octave, and nine is the basis of the Diatonic musical scale.

So, to arrive at this new time value, all you would do is increase the number of hours in the day. You would leave the same values of 60 minutes per hour, and 60 seconds per minute. Obviously, this would change the values for hours and minutes, making them shorter, since you now have to squeeze 27 hours into our regular day of 24. So, if we solve for the number of "grid seconds" in one "grid day," we come up with 97,200 grid seconds total. (27h x 60m x 60s.)

If any reader decides to start dividing 97,200 by fundamental "harmonic numbers" such as 9, interesting things will happen. 97,200 divided by 9 equals 10800, a harmonic of 1080, which is the fundamental Gematrian number for the Moon. (666 is the number for the Sun, 1080 for the Moon and 1746 the "fusion number" between the two. 666 is the number you get if you count 1-36 and add all those numbers together, and 36 is also a key harmonic number in the Diatonic musical scale as we have shown.) 1080, the Moon number, is also precisely half of the Moon’s diameter in regular English miles, and that is an important point.

The 2160-mile diameter of the Moon is quantitatively identical to the 2,160-year age of the Zodiac. In future chapters we will discuss the fact that 12 of these zodiacal "ages" add up to 25,920, the same number as our Great Solar Cycle and the long-term wobbling cycle of the Earth known as precession. So this is our first "hint" that the ancient measurement of the inch, foot and mile may be directly connected to this universal harmonic system. In chapter 17, Carl Munck will make this point much more visible for us.

If we divide 97,200 by 9 again, we get 1200, another fundamental number as the harmonic of 12. Anyone who wishes to "play" with this and knows a little about harmonic numbers will quickly be satisfied. You can try a series of divisions by 6, by 5 and by 3 to see the interesting results -- repeating numbers and other "harmonic" values. We can definitely see why Cathie favored the 9-based number 97,200 as the harmonic ideal for the number of "grid seconds" in one Earth day - an absolute number for how much distance in harmonic time that the Earth has traveled. Although this does not correspond with our current measurement of time rooted in the number 8, it appears to be the best way to rectify the Earth’s orbit with the harmonic system. We will show as we go along that 97,200 "grid seconds" is a very important number for charting the pulsating frequencies of a CU.

Furthermore, the harmonics of Cathie’s number for the Earth grid in seconds, our 97,200, also reduces down to 972. This is another multiple of 36, again showing us its harmonic nature as a musical frequency, fundamentally connected to the Diatonic scale. 972 divided by 36 is 27, the number of hours in a Grid day.

So, we can clearly see that planetary harmonies emerging, expressed in elegant harmonic numbers for their orbits. Richard Hoagland revealed at a MUFON conference in 1997 that the orbit of Mars had been exactly 666 Martian days long in the past, due to the changing gravitational interactions of the planet with its two moons, so this is yet another way for us to see this in effect.

Cathie then ties these "grid seconds" together with the speed of light, and recalculates this value based on harmonic mathematics. When we think of our current value for the speed of light, this value is based on the mathematics and time that we now use. When we change those seconds into harmonic or grid seconds, introducing the transcendental properties of the ratio of 9, (which again is the building block of the Diatonic series as well as the master frequency number of the Maya,) the value of the speed of light will also change. What we never could have expected is the amazing, fundamental harmonic number that the speed of light changes into!

In order to "set up" our final point that will tie into the Solar Cycle in later chapters and our study of the consciousness units, we need to explore Cathie’s discussion of light waveforms and how they would work in the atom. Cathie informs us of the fact that the true atom would not look like a Solar System as we think of it, but rather as a spherical mass. Light travels in a circular, three-dimensional wave, a wave that spirals to a certain height and a certain depth. You could graph this in two dimensions as a regular "sine wave," with a horizontal line for its midsection.

If you picture this light wave moving forward at a set speed, you can visualize how a sphere would be formed. The light spiral would begin at the midpoint of the wave, which would be the North Pole of the sphere. The wave spirals out to maximum height and "lowers" to the median again as it reaches the sphere’s equator, forming the first hemisphere. Then, the second hemisphere is formed the same way, as the wave "lowers" to its lowest point and again rises to the median. See the diagram for support in visualizing this. The numbers at the bottom represent the harmonics that Cathie discovered as being associated with this movement.

Naturally, you could measure it as a "particle," namely the sphere, or a "wave," namely the waveform making up the sphere. So, with this conceptual invention, Cathie provided a solution for what is known in Physics as the "wave-particle duality," where light can appear as either a particle or a wave depending on how you observe it. He also indicates how antimatter is formed as a result of the spiraling motions involved.

We remind the reader that this system bears remarkable similarity to our own theory regarding the inner workings of "consciousness units." Cathie displays this as a rather two-dimensional system, essentially moving left to right and right to left in a spiral. Cathie uses a "wave" for the diagram, and we now know from studies such as those of Dr. Michio Kaku that the "waves" are actually superstrings, which we assert to be lines of energetic force in a unified "sea" of aether energy. We also have reason to believe, from various psychic and physical sources that we have listed, that these "waves" must originate from a center point or Oneness and move outwards as the energy expands, then collapse back inwards yet again as it contracts.

So, with only a very slight tweaking, we can see how Cathie has discovered "consciousness units" in his own right, as atoms. All we have to do is see them as being formed of superstrings that travel in spirals, expanding outward in a spherical form from a central point or nucleus. Cathie’s atom is formed almost exactly the same as he thought it was; only the vector or direction of the spirals needs to be changed. Since we know the Earth to be a gigantic consciousness unit as well, providing a spherical "field" to hold these energies, this explains why Cathie’s grid shows us two of the Platonic Solids - the octahedron and cube.

We have already said that the tips or corners of each of the Platonic Solids represent the points where the spirals all converge, giving them greater gravitational / energetic strength. This interplay of forces at the "nodes" shows up as straight-lined magnetic fields within the expanding sphere, all harmonically spaced. This harmonic spacing is the fundamental definition of all the Platonic Solids we have been discussing.

THE HARMONIC SPEED OF LIGHT

We have now determined that Cathie set up a basis for measuring time using a system of "grid seconds," where the normal 86,400 seconds in a day based on a harmonic of 8 are expanded into 97,200 seconds, based on a harmonic of 9. In so doing, one day of Earth’s rotation was split up into 27, or 9 x 3 "grid hours." The number of "grid seconds" per day comes out to be the extremely harmonic number of 97,200. This is how Cathie achieved the first step towards putting the Speed of Light in grid terms; getting a time measurement based on grid seconds.

The Speed of Light as we now express it is measured in miles per second. We have already seen how Cathie converted the value of a second into its harmonic ideal, the Grid Second. We now also need to convert our regular system of miles into a grid-based measuring system. As we remember from the discussion of the work of Aime Michel and the UFO tracklines that were symmetrically spaced apart from each other, Cathie used the system of "nautical miles" to determine where the "grid lines" were placed. We also know that one nautical mile is equal to one minute of arc on the Earth’s surface, and that there is a "grid line" every 30 minutes. So, what we need to do is change the miles in the speed of light equation into nautical miles, or minutes of arc, as the two are interchangeable. Therefore, the "grid speed" of Light would be expressed as (x) minutes of arc per grid second.

The incontrovertible truth of Cathie’s findings is that the "Grid Speed of Light" is EXACTLY 144,000 minutes of arc per grid second in free space. As we are about to see, this becomes one of the most important points in the book, as it shows us that there is a direct connection between light frequencies and sound frequencies - the mathematics of the numbers are literally identical. Twice the value of 144 is 288, which is the first value in the Diatonic scale that we have been investigating.

As we look into this even further, we can see that the fundamental, harmonic value of 144,000 for the speed of light is precisely the same as the fundamental harmonic values for many different things, including:

• the Mayan Calendar’s baktun, at 144,000 Earth days

• the Bible number of the 144,000 souls who will Ascend

• the fundamental "building block" of all sound vibration frequencies, 144

• the fundamental Gematrian "frequency number" for light, 144

• And, of course, the harmonic of 12 times 12

So, the Gematrian meaning for the number 144 is ’light.’ Obviously, we must question if these archaic designers of this Biblical numerological system were aware of the same information as Cathie; we now see that they were right: 144 really is light!

As another interesting harmonic point, physicist John Nordberg reveals that current physics still uses a time unit based on a traditional second, and this unit is a direct statement of how fast the second hand moves through a 360-degree circle on a clock face as opposed to how fast the Sun moves in one 360-degree circle through the sky. There are 86,400 seconds in the Sun’s 360-degree arc, representing one day of time. So, to get the amount of relative movement between one second in the 360-degree clock face and one second in the Sun’s apparent 360-degree movement, we divide 86,400 by the number of seconds in one 360-degree circle, or one minute, which is 60 seconds.

The ratio that we are left with is 1440, which represents our current perception of time: in other words, one second of our time is 1440 times faster in its movement through its arc than the movement of the Sun through the arc it traces in our sky. When we combine this with Cathie’s true harmonic value of 144,000 arc-minutes for the Speed of Light in one "grid second," we can see that there are quite interesting harmonic parallels there.

More importantly, the speed of light is harmonically the same as the speed of the baktun measuring units in the Great Cycle, as we will see in later chapters. It also is a function of the harmonics making up the consciousness units [CUs.] So, there is a fundamental relationship between Light itself, Sound, and the Solar Cycle. (The Solar Cycle is a pulsation of Light, expressed through planets and star rotations. This Light pulsation works in octaves, giving us the dimensions.) Cathie had just told us above that light forms spheres as it travels, and a CU is a spherical energy that pulsates.

We have also suggested that the sphere of a planet can provide a large-scale harmonic for the pulsation of the CU, and now Cathie has resolved our basic "planetary measurement values" such as the mile into fundamental Grid harmonic terms that help us calculate the true harmonic passage of time. One of Cathie’s most impressive "harmonic" renderings of the Earth as a CU is the distance from the center of the earth to the average height of the atmosphere. This value is given as 4320 arc-minutes, which reduces down to 432, the number of "Consecration" and the fundamental vibration for the sixth node in the octave. So, it would appear that the arc-minutes are indeed vital in demonstrating the Earth’s harmonic proportions. Now that we have solved for the speed of Light in harmonic time and arc-minutes, we can see why; it comes out to an exact harmonic of 144.

So essentially, by using this system of Grid mathematics, Cathie has determined how a consciousness unit is mapped out at the most minute, fundamental levels - using 360-degree-based "grid seconds" and minutes of arc. Not only do we see the mapping of a CU, we also see its fundamental relationship to Light, and the harmonics of Light. Since the harmonic principles of the CU are literally identical between the Earth and the atoms, we will also see that the cycles of the Solar System are also a harmonic function.

The planets move through space not in two-dimensional circles as we usually see them, but in spirals, since the Galaxy is also rotating and moving the Solar System forward as a unit. If you looked at a planetary orbit in non-moving, empty space, it would travel in a spiral. So, the planets spiral in a harmonically identical fashion as the superstrings within a consciousness unit, only much slower. The planets originated from the center, the Sun, as super-hot gas and dust, and are now spiraling outward from the Sun at a slow, predictable and harmonic rate of speed as planets. Similarly, the CU starts at its center and spirals outward in superstrings. So, the Solar System is indeed a giant, harmonic consciousness unit.

Let’s take a quote from Ra here to illustrate the point. We will start with an excerpt from Ra that clearly illustrates the connection between their definition of the Solar Cycle that we will be discussing in future chapters and their definition of a consciousness unit. Here is that quote to get us started:

Q: The way that I understand the process of evolution is that our planetary population has a certain amount of time to progress. This is generally divided into three 25,000-year cycles. At the end of 75,000 years the planet progresses itself. What caused this situation to come about with the preciseness of the years in each cycle?

RA: I am Ra. Visualize, if you will, the particular energy which, outward flowing and inward coagulating, formed the tiny realm of the creation governed by your Council of Saturn. Continue seeing the rhythm of this process. The living flow creates a rhythm which is as inevitable as one of your timepieces. Each of your planetary entities began the first cycle when the energy nexus was able in that environment to support such mind/body experiences. Thus, each of your planetary entities is on a different cyclical schedule as you might call it. The timing of these cycles is a measurement equal to a portion of intelligent energy.

This intelligent energy offers a type of clock. The cycles move as precisely as a clock strikes your hour. Thus, the gateway from intelligent energy to intelligent infinity opens regardless of circumstance on the striking of the hour.

This quote will be drawn upon much more in future chapters. What we can see here is that they refer to the "outward flowing and inward coagulating" nature of intelligent energy that is on a particular cycle. This cycle can be measured very precisely, and it determines when a "frequency shift" will occur on any planetary body. Now, since we are knee-deep in a discussion of consciousness units, it is more appropriate for us to bring out the rest of Ra’s quotes. The next quote, from pg. 6 of Law of One Book II, continues the concept we have just seen above.

Intelligent infinity has a rhythm or flow as of a giant heart beginning with the central sun as you would think or conceive of this, the presence of the flow inevitable as a tide of beingness without polarity, without finity; the vast and silent all beating outward, outward, focusing outward and inward until the focuses are complete. The intelligence or consciousness of foci have reached a state where their, shall we say, spiritual nature or mass calls them inward, inward, inward until all is coalesced. This is the rhythm of reality as you spoke.

This quote does sound quite familiar to the one from Walter Russell, which we reprinted at the beginning of this book:

In My universe there is but one form from which all forms appear. That one form is the pulsing cube-sphere, two halves of the heartbeat of My dual thinking. All forms pulse, therefore, all forms are two, one form for the inbreathing pulse, which generates, and one for the outbreathing, radiating one. The cube is the sphere expanded by the outward breath to black rest in cold space, and the sphere is the cube compressed to the incandescence of white-hot suns by the inward breath.

Then, on page 10, Elkins asks Ra a question based on their previous statements and his own understanding of the physics of Dewey Larson. (We are told in the introduction to Law of One: Book II that "For those who may wish to study Larsonian physics, The Structure of the Physical Universe is a good book with which to begin.") Dr. Elkins’ question does indeed set out the fundamental basis for "consciousness units" as we have discussed them so far. What is important for us right now is that Ra affirmed the correctness of this statement, for our own galaxy.

Q: …I think that possibly we are at the most important part of what we are doing in trying to make it apparent how everything is One, how it comes from one intelligent infinity. This is difficult, so please bear with my errors in questioning.

The concept that I have right now of the process, using both what you have told me and some of Dewey Larson’s material having to do with the physics of the process, is that intelligent infinity expands outward from all locations everywhere. It expands outward uniformly like the surface of a bubble or a balloon expanding outward from every point everywhere. It expands outward at what is called unit velocity or the velocity of light. This is Larson’s idea of the progression of what he calls space / time. Is this correct?

(It is very important to remember that Ra refers to this expanding movement of Light as "upward spiraling Light;" in other words, it travels in a spiraling motion within a spherical field, thus forming the spherical geometries of the CUs as we have said.)

RA: I am Ra. This concept is incorrect as is any concept of the one intelligent infinity. This concept is correct in the context of one particular Logos, (galaxy,) or Love, or focus of this Creator which has chosen Its, shall we say, natural laws and ways of expressing them mathematically and otherwise."

So what we can see from Ra in this quote is that these "sacred mathematics" are all a function of the laws that are present within our own galaxy. That raises up the unique question of how and why they might be different in another galaxy! We won’t tackle those questions in this book, as they are not central to the discussion. Elkins’ question on page 12 gives us the answer that we were looking for, showing us that the Solar System is a crystallized consciousness unit.

Q: When does the individualization or the individualized portion of consciousness come into play? At what point does individualized consciousness take over working on the basic light?"

What Elkins is really asking is how we, as human entities, end up working with these expansive energies in our own consciousness. We need to note that Ra’s answer to this question starts out by telling Elkins that there is no "point" of time when this actually starts, since all time is ultimately simultaneous. We have edited out that brief section, since there are terms in it that haven’t been defined in this book, and we then move forward to the pertinent part of the answer.

RA: I am Ra… The experience or existence of space / time comes into being after the individuation process of Logos or Love has been completed and the physical universe, as you would call it, has coalesced or begun to draw inward while moving outward to the extent that that which you call your sun bodies have in their turn created timeless chaos coalescing into what you call planets, these vortices of intelligent energy spending a large amount of what you would call first density in a timeless state, the space/time realization being one of the learn/teachings of this density of being-ness.

Thus we have difficulty answering your questions with regard to time and space and their relationship to the, what you would call, original creation which is not a part of space/time as you can understand it.

So, if we look closely at Ra’s above quote, it would appear that our existence as a Solar System of planets is carefully perched on the platform of physical manifestation. In order for space/time to exist, the coalescing, compression force has to "begin to draw inward," and this is what we call gravity. Remember that Einstein showed us that space/time assembles itself into a fabric, and that gravity is a function of the curvature of the fabric.

Ra resolves this "gravity paradox" with the notion of the CU on pg. 19 and 20 of these same sessions, by telling us that gravity "may be seen as the pressing towards the inner light / love, the seeking towards the spiral line of light which progresses towards the Creator. This is a manifestation of a spiritual event or condition of living-ness." In other words, gravity is simply the reverse motion of the expansion of the CU. Gravity is the compression of the CU showing itself in the physical. Also be aware that this excerpt refers to the spiraling nature of these lines, or superstrings of light.

Ra indicated that their answer to Elkins’ question was designed to incorporate the metaphysical principles behind gravity as well as the physical. Gravity, as a metaphysical concept, is the motion towards the center, or Unity. A bit later in the book, we get the following interesting exchange between Ra and Elkins about gravity, which explains this even better.

RA: I am Ra…When all of creation in its infinity has reached a spiritual gravitational mass of sufficient nature, the entire creation infinitely coalesces; the light seeking and finding its source and thusly ending the creation and beginning a new creation much as you consider the black hole, as you call it, with its conditions of infinitely great mass at the zero point from which no light may be seen as it has been absorbed.

Q: Then the black hole would be a point at which the environmental material has succeeded in uniting with unity or with the Creator? Is this correct?

RA: I am Ra. The black hole which manifests third density is the physical complex manifestation of this spiritual or metaphysical state. This is correct.

So, what we can see here is the metaphysics of gravity. Each geometric layer of the CU above our own is a higher level of spiritual density, and that means that it is moving closer and closer to the One. Remember that by the time the consciousness units have reached the point of the sphere, or the Octave, they have compressed back down into a single "point." With this quote from Ra, we can indeed see that this is true, and that the black hole is the best physical example that we can see of this process at work. So, as we Ascend, even as we expand in frequency, we are in a sense compressing the CUs in our bodies into a form that is closer to God. (We are informed by these forces that this is not at all a painful process… we might not even know that it has happened at first.)

Since Ra tells us that gravity is a function of the spiraling expansion and contraction of a CU, we can see why these shapes have an effect on Earth’s gravity, forming the grids such as the ones that Cathie’s UFOs were flying upon. As we go forward in this book, we will see many more examples of the geometry of the CU showing up as physical gravitational stresses on the Earth. This point will be most clearly expressed in the chapter on the Becker / Hagens grid.

When we look at all of the material we have just quoted from Ra together, we can see that consciousness units change their frequencies, or dimensional levels, at predictable, cyclical rates. As we move into Part Three, we will tie this all together so that we can see that our own Solar System is a consciousness unit on a specific cycle that is about to rise in frequency.

And so, to summarize, we started this chapter by looking at the work of Bruce Cathie, and most recently at his discovery that light waves create spheres as they travel. According to Cathie, what we perceive as our three-dimensional universe is a phase of matter and anti-matter, with no gaps in between. (Obviously there are gaps, representing the other dimensions; but it appears to us in 3D that there are not.)

We now remind ourselves that Cathie made an incredible discovery. The harmonic speed of light, phrased in minutes of arc per grid second, is a function of 144 - the Gematrian number for light. Cathie tells us that since our Creation is made up of a matter / antimatter cycle, we need to double this harmonic - each pulsation actually must spend half of its time traveling in the antimatter plane. (See the earlier diagram of the spherical light wave to help visualize this.)

According to Ra, this plane would be the reverse of spacetime, known as "timespace," where the basic properties of space and time are reversed -- supposedly space is much more inflexible whereas time is much more flexible, unlike our own spacetime where we can move through space easily but not through time. So, when we double the harmonic of the speed of light we get the harmonic number 288, which as we said is the beginning of the fundamental Diatonic scale of vibrations. Time after time, we are referred to in metaphysical literature as a dimension that is painfully slow. This slowness is measured by our measurement of the fundamental speed of light as being "only" a harmonic of 288, or the first-dimension vibration.

Einstein’s paradox of "light speed" is that as you approach it, mass becomes larger and larger, to a point of infinity. But as Cathie has solved the relativity equation for light alone, we can then see that the only threshold we would ever reach would be a function of C, the speed of light itself. Therefore, there really is no mass, only Light. Or, as Ra says, we gain "spiritual mass" which compresses us back to the Light of the One.

Obviously, this "spiritual mass" is Light, not physical matter. The point here is that Light speed is NOT an infinite boundary that cannot be crossed, it just requires your FREQUENCY to change. Think of the atom with its eight positions for electrons. Were a ninth electron to be released from the nucleus, it would have no choice but to transition into the next octave of frequency, since the octave structure cannot be superceded. So, when the speed of Light reaches its "critical mass" in our third dimension, it "jumps" to the next level, or frequency, in the octave.

So, we will postulate here that as this boundary is breached into the next higher dimensional frequency, the speed of light would fundamentally increase into its new notch. We remember that with Cathie’s opposing antimatter / matter cycle, the actual light harmonic is 288. We can see this dimensional shifting action of the Speed of Light within the progressions of sound, as we can raise the pitch of a D at 288 cycles per second to an E at 324. Cathie tells us that these light-waves form spheres, and thus if the speed of Light increases, the sphere formed by that light-wave would be at a "faster" frequency - and this would be a faster geometric frequency as well. Thus, one could perceive the different Platonic solids as forming in different dimensions, even though they are only a visual representation of rising frequencies.

As we have already indicated, Cathie was able to completely transform Einstein’s theory of relativity with a "grid function" that expressed that mass in terms of the speed of light only. By solving the Relativity theory for "c", Cathie essentially "cracked the code" of the Unified Field theory by removing the mass variable and resolving Einstein’s entire equation into light; hence Energy Equals Light. Thus, all seen and unseen material in the Universe is a Unified Field of what is ultimately Pure Light. This is a scientific "discovery" of exactly what Ra and other spiritual sources have told us all throughout time.

Again, these unified field equations suggested ways in which the energy could be utilized for such things as anti-gravity and free energy. Indeed, as a result of this ongoing research, Cathie drew some very serious interest from the highest levels of the Secret Government. After all, he had solved the Problem of All Problems, the answer to Unified Field Physics. With this knowledge properly applied, all ET-related sciences were wide open to explore, including dimensional warping and teleportation. According to his literature, government agents would come and ask him many different questions, wanting to know how he was able to figure all of his information out. He was hounded and followed, phone lines most likely tapped, et cetera.

Many tempting and profitable offers have been made for him to work solely for governmental entities and not release the information to the public, apparently extending right through to the recent past. Yet, Cathie was undeterred, and unlike many other researchers of similar caliber, he was never killed. Instead, they continued to cooperate with him, and as time went on he could tell that they knew a great deal about what he was studying, and were using his research to further their own experiments. It seemed that he was discovering crucial details for a system that was being put into much more practical use than he could have ever imagined. In the next chapter we will discuss how such a system may have been implemented.

Footnote:
Cathie’s primary harmonic equation for the Unified Field Theory is as follows:

• Einstein      E = MC2

• Cathie        M = C + √(1 / C)

• Therefore    E = (C + (√1 / C)) C2
