CG JUNG'S Misunderstanding and Misapplication of the symbolism of the Quaternary

Psychologists cannot fully understand CG Jung work simply because CG Jung did not comprehend fully what his empirical research was conveying to him and that is because he neither had all the facts nor the mystical graphic images of the psyche that would have guided him into correctly interpreting the data, out of the dreams, he was dealing with.  Chief amongst those ideas, Jung envisaged out of the sessions with his patients and their dreams and/or out of the ravings of the psychiatric patients in the Insane Asylum that he was employed at for many years in Switzerland, is the Quaternary.

I am neither a psychologist nor a psychiatric; rather, I am a symbolist that studies the esotericism (alphanumeric and symbolic structure of the letters of the Hebrew Coder) of the sacred scriptures as if they were similar too; however, far advance of the teachings of CG Jung.  

I will give several passages out of a series of dreams as an example. There are three separate quaternaries in the psyche: ego-consciousness and the unconscious mind.  Catholicism designates these quaternaries as Heaven (angels and Holy Spirit), Purgatory: (Catholicism) and Hell (animal instincts: i.e. ignorance): thus when CG Jung envisaged a Quaternary in the dreams of a patient he automatically; yet, unknowingly, lumps any one of the three quaternaries as if they were one and the same not knowing there are three.

There is a mathematical matrix that can be culled out of the psyche via a commentary on the MONAD, which CG Jung did not know about; however, he inadvertently wrote about it extensively.  After I, personally, envisaged this matrix out of the psyche, independently, during my mathematical researches of Dante Alighieri’s La Divina Commedia

I would trace the matrix around the world to Pythagoras’ mathematical theorem and all religious cultures: Buddhism stupas, Chinese I Ching and Tao Te Ching, Hinduism and Catholicism temples, Egypt’s pyramids, Aztec and Mayan civilizations in South American, American Indian cultures in North America, the Game of Chess and the science of Astrology, etc., etc.

My research on the first four chapters of Genesis spans forty-years and my esoteric studies began in April 1983.  I was able to determine that the first four chapters of Genesis are written as commentary on the UNIVERSAL MATHEMATICAL MATRIX the original source material from out of the psyche creating all creation.

The three quaternaries that I spoke of above can be studied out of the image depicted in the following link.  The center Quaternary is a representation of the Catholic Church (Purgatory).  Notice the circular direction that the signs of the Zodiac take in the first and last quaternaries counterclockwise and clockwise.  Now notice that the center Quaternary follows neither the first nor the last; rather, it suggests a third option: THE SIGN OF THE CROSS: however, notice closely how the central Quaternary is developed.  Each of the signs of the Zodiac in the central Quaternary is two parts from heaven (Jupiter and Mars) and two parts from hell (Bull and the Twins).  It is as if the central Quaternary is obtaining strength from both of the other quaternaries as if to become as Christ, “be ye therefore perfect even as your father in heaven is perfect.”  In fact you read the central quaternary as a statement of Christ, “when two (Taurus) and three (Gemini) are gather together (horizontally) in my name there am I (Pisces and Aries) in the midst of them (vertically)”.  This creates the Cross of the GOD/MAN Christ.

I am rereading CG Jung volume 11, PSYCHOLOGY AND RELIGION: West and East and I was struck that CG Jung was discussing Wolfgang Pauli (physicist) dreams in the opening lectures and he was discussing the quaternity.  NOTICE WHAT CG JUNG SAYS:

 [Para. 56] I must, therefore, restrict myself to the mere statement that the “ape” refers to the dreamer’s instinctual personality, 1 which he had completely neglected in favor of an exclusively intellectual attitude. (Jung, C. G. (2014-03-01). Collected Works of C.G. Jung, Volume 11: Psychology and Religion: West and East: 011 (p. 34). Princeton University Press. Kindle Edition.)

[Para. 61] As I said before, the number four plays an important role in these dreams , always alluding to an idea akin to the Pythagorean tetractys. Jung, C. G. (2014-03-01). Collected Works of C.G. Jung,

[Para. 111] This is the literal text of the vision: There is a vertical and a horizontal circle, having a common centre. This is the world clock. It is supported by the black bird. The vertical circle is a blue disc with a white border divided into 4 × 8 = 32 partitions. A pointer rotates upon it. The horizontal circle consists of four colours. On it stand four little men with pendulums, and round about it is laid the ring that was once dark and is now golden (formerly carried by four children). The world clock has three rhythms or pulses:

  1. The small pulse: the pointer on the blue vertical disc advances by 1/32.
  2. The middle pulse: one complete rotation of the pointer. At the same time the horizontal circle advances by 1/32.
  3. The great pulse: 32 middle pulses are equal to one complete rotation of the golden ring.

Jung, C. G. (2014-03-01). Collected Works of C.G. Jung, Volume 11: Psychology and Religion: West and East: 011. Princeton University Press. Kindle Edition.

This image of the three quaternaries is the in Kabbalism is the KABBALISTIC TREE OF LIFE, which has thirty-two paths. It is quite coincidental that CG Jung does not make the connection to Jewish or Christian Kabbalism. 

Remember all this was discussed out on a series of dreams of the same patient: Wolfgang Pauli.

I suggest that Jungian psychiatrists, psychologists and Jungian students make themselves knowledgeable about this UNIVERSAL MATHEMATICAL MATRIX: Prima Materia (Perennial Matrix) for it alone, above all the rhetoric and books written in the past and the future will advance humanity knowledge about the psyche and the individual’s spiritual growth.  Bye and Bye make no mistake about it this matrix is absolute proof of the existence of God, which I define as spiritual law.

I found one more sections of Jung, C. G. (2014-03-01). Collected Works of C.G. Jung, Volume 11: Psychology and Religion: West and East: 011. Princeton University Press. Kindle Edition that will help augment this discussion.

[Para. 150] "We read in the commentary to the Tractatus aureus: This one thing to which the elements must be reduced is that little circle holding the place of the centre in this squared figure. It is a mediator making peace between enemies or the elements, that they may love one another in a meet embrace. He alone brings about the squaring of the circle, which many hitherto have sought, but few have found."

"For as … the supernatural and eternal good, Christ Jesus our Mediator and Saviour, who delivers us from eternal death, from the devil, and from all evil, partakes of two natures , the divine and the human , so likewise is that earthly saviour composed of two parts, the heavenly and the earthly . With these he has restored us to health, and delivers us from diseases heavenly and earthly, spiritual and corporeal, visible and invisible."

If the central quaternary is studied in the above links through it Sun Signs and Triplicities Elements: Fire, Earth, Air and Water in relationship to the heavenly and earthly quaternaries these above statement of CG Jung's makes a lot of sense.

In fact the center quaternary is how the first word of Genesis: BE-RESH-ITH was formulated, which are two Hebrew letters: BETH (Sun) and RESH (Moon), which are two intersecting circle creating the Vesica Piscis in the middle: i.e. amalgamating the opposites and setting up the wording of the second day of creation.  The Firmament is the Vesica Piscis.  Also the word BERESHITH can be illustrated as both a sphere and a square on a purely mathematical level.

Note that the central quaternary in the UNIVERSAL MATHEMATICAL MATRIX AND THE KABBALISTIC TREE OF LIFE image totally narrates the story of Noah's Ark where he takes in the animals two by two or seven by seven.  Isn't it wonderful that we have this verifiable graphic image of the psyche in which we can validate the esotericism of the sacred scriptures and the symbolism coming out of the psyche of the common man. We must not lose knowledge of this image again; I say this knowing that humanity will lose it again and go into an amnesia state again because of its hubris: enlarged ego.

Those that study this matrix will be startled by what they will discover.  Within its precincts is the sum-total of all knowledge.  This particular image of the matrix is color-coded to exude the dynamics of the DOT, LINE, ANGLE and CIRCLE, which inspired the Pythagorean mathematical theorems.  These patterns also exude the movements of the Chess pieces on the back row of the Chessboard. The numbers 1-8 pair off into the Astrological Sun Signs.  All aspects of Astrology are culled from it.  This matrix has embedded in it the secrets of the tetractys and the star-studded universe.

This matrix is culled from the psyche: ego-consciousness and the unconscious mind.  Elsewhere, I have illustrated how it was developed from the multiplication tables (1-8) casting-out-nines.  There is no way in the physical world that images can spontaneously appear out of random mathematics: chaos.  This is a grammar school mathematical tool for children; yet, it is the key to all material and spiritual knowledge.  The matrix like the material world is an illusion of the psyche.  All of life is lived within the psyche.

This matrix is the WORD OF GOD

And it is in fact proof of

The existence of God
