A Study of G.I.

Gurdjieff’s Enneagram of Foods
A Visual Interpretation of Gurdjieff’s Enneagram of Foods Combined with the Inverse-Square-Law-Based Music/Color Wheel
Music/Color Wheel
The music/color wheel (with the proportions shown here) was developed by Reginald Brooks. * The divisions of the notes of the c-scale are based on a circle divided into 16 sections. The positions of the notes and the colors are based on the relationships of their frequencies to each other, using the Inverse Square Law, which states that “the intensity of an effect such as illumination or gravitational force changes in inverse proportion to the square of the distance from the source.” The 16 divisions of the circle which form the basis for the Music/Color Wheel are indicated by the radiating dark grey dotted lines: 1

Enneagram
This particular enneagram is taken from G.I. Gurdjieff’s illustrations as shown in the book “In Search of the divided into 9 parts. The parts are numbered Miraculous” by P.D. Ouspensky. It is based on a circle clockwise from 1-9, with 9 sitting in the top position. The 9 divisions of the circle which form the basis for the enneagram are indicated by the radiating red dotted lines: The enneagram is mathematically based on the fractions shown to the right. Each decimal except the last contains the numbers of the enneagram except for 3, 6, and 9 - the triad of “Do’s.” 1/7=0.142857 2/7=0.285714 3/7=0.428571 4/7=0.571428 5/7=0.714285 6/7=0.857142 7/7=0.999999

Perhaps a general interpretation of “Impressions” could be “knowledge” of any kind. Impressions, as with knowledge, must be �ine and true in order to assist the organism.
