Structural Similarities of Macro- and Microcosm

Dr. Hans-Joachim Rudolph (MD), Microvita Research e.V.




The previously described strata were referred to as spiritual, psycho-
spiritual, psychic and physico-psychic. They correspond to the chambers
described in Sarkar’s last chapter of ‘Microvitum in a Nutshell”, where
they are displayed systematically, with the subjective or objective pairs
in rows, and the complemented or reduced pairs in lines. In contrast, the
concentric strata are arranged according to the sequence in which they
act on each other: Subjective A influencing subjective B, then influencing
objective A and finally influencing objective B. Hence, these figures
depict the same issue, but from different angles. The question remains
what the contents of these zones or chambers actually are?

Basically, their contents are the mental and emotional constructs, the
qualia, as they are called by the philosophers of mind. To be more
specific, let us take the extremes. The one extreme is the center point,
which stands for the divine, the Supreme Entity. And the other extreme
is the circumference, which stands for the physical reality of our
universe. As the universe exists in an unlimited three-dimensional
space, the circumference has to belong to a four-dimensional globe;
then, and only then, its surface turns out to be an unlimited three-
dimensional space. Consequently, the zones between these two
extremes are inhabited by whatever we call emotional, psychic, mental
or spiritual.

In a materialistic framework we consider all emotional, psychic, mental


and spiritual events to be derived from physical origins. Spiritualists,
however, consider everything as a result of emanations from the
Supreme Entity. Of course, there is a difference between those events,
which are necessarily created by an interaction between the physical
and the psychic zone (a posteriori), and those which are independent of
physical events or experiences (a priori). The latter can be considered
as the primary contents of the intermediate zones.

Now, if we talk about emotions, qualia and mental constructs our frame
of reference is the individual human being. And when talking about the
physical reality, our frame of reference is the physical universe. Spiritual
philosophies emphasize the structural similarities between the two, i.e.
the similarities between the micro- and the macrocosm. As individual
human beings, we also participate in the physical reality of this cosmos.
And below the surface of this universe, spiritual powers and the divine
love of our Cosmic Father are considered to prevail. So, staying in the
metaphor, we can conclude that the individual human being participates
in this 'mighty circle’ as a thin sector.

For the individual, its center is Atman, for the macrocosm it is Param-
Atman; and regarding the physical world: For us it is that part of reality,
which we are able to grasp; but for Him it is the whole universe, which
has been created in toto by that Macrocosmic Being.

Spiritual philosophies highlight these structural similarities and disregard


the differences in completeness and magnitude.
