Esoteric Symbol One: Water

Paul Kiritsis - Tuesday, October 18, 2011

In the esoteric language, the four elements are not to be confused with the four corporeal manifestations of the same name. They are merely the initial or primary differentiations of the primal virginal substance of all creation, the prima materia. All of them exhibit two of four secondary properties–hot, cold, dry and moist. This theory came down to us through the Aristotelian doctrine of matter, though it most probably took shape under the philosophical musings of the Ionic pre-Socratics. The ethereal element of water is cold and moist, and its material manifestation as a composition of two atoms of hydrogen and one of water (H20) is an immediate and exoteric expression of the former’s quintessential aspects–its volatility, passivity, amorphousness, colourlessness and receptivity. Water is characterised by the condition of heaviness, but also of expansion. On a scale which orders the four ethereal elements on the basis of their pureness and level of refinement, water would come third, after both air and fire. Unlike the latter two which tend to rise, water is rather dense and possesses a downward tendency. Nevertheless it’s not as heavy, invariable and sluggish as the element of earth. In alchemical manuscripts and other esoteric documents, it is symbolised by an overturned triangle.

I rarely comment, but i did some searching and wound up here Esoteric Symbol One:
Water. And I actually do have 2 questions for you if you tend not to mind.

Is it simply me or does it look like some of these comments
come across as if they are written by brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you
are posting at other online social sites,
I would like to follow everything fresh you have to post.

Would you list of all of your shared pages like your Facebook
page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

Hello! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers?
My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing
a few months of hard work due to no back up.
Do you have any methods to prevent hackers?

Woah! I'm really loving the template/theme of this blog. It's simple, yet effective.
A lot of times it's difficult to get that "perfect balance" between superb usability and visual appearance.
I must say you've done a fantastic job with this.
Additionally, the blog loads super fast for me on Internet explorer.
Outstanding Blog!
