The Law of One, Book IV, Session 82
Questioner: I would like to consider the condition at a time or position just prior to the beginning of this octave of experience.
I am assuming that, just prior to the beginning of this octave, intelligent infinity had created and already experienced one or more previous octaves. Is this correct?
Ra: I am Ra. You assume correctly.
However, the phrase would more informatively read, infinite intelligence had experienced previous octaves.
Questioner: Does Ra have any knowledge of the number of previous octaves; if so, how many?
Ra: I am Ra. As far as we are aware we are in an infinite creation.
There is no counting.
Questioner: That’s what I thought you might say.
Am I correct in assuming that at the beginning of this octave, out of what I would call a void of space, seeds of an infinite number of galactic systems such as the Milky Way Galaxy appeared and grew in spiral fashion simultaneously?
Ra: I am Ra. There are duple areas of potential confusion.
Firstly, let us say that the basic concept is reasonably well-stated.
Now we address the confusions.
The nature of true simultaneity is such that, indeed, all is simultaneous.
However, in your modes of perception you would perhaps more properly view the seeding of the creation as that of growth from the center or core outward.
The second confusion lies in the term, ‘void’.
We would substitute the noun, ‘plenum’.
Questioner: Then, if I were observing the beginning of the octave at that time through a telescope, say from this position, would I see the center of many, many galaxies appearing and each of them then spreading outward in a spiraling fashion over what we would consider billions of years, but the spirals spreading outward in approximately what we would consider the same rate so that all these galaxies began as the first speck of light at the same time and then spread out at roughly the same rate?
Is this correct?
Ra: I am Ra. The query has confusing elements.
There is a center to infinity.
From this center all spreads.
there are centers to the creation,
to the galaxies,
to star systems,
to planetary systems, and
In each case you may see growth from the center outward.
Thus you may see your query as being over-general in concept.
Questioner: Considering only our Milky Way Galaxy at its beginnings, I will assume that the first occurrence that we could find with our physical apparatus was the appearance of a star of the nature of our sun. Is this correct?
Ra: I am Ra.
In the case of the galactic systems
the first manifestation of the Logos is a cluster of central systems which generate the outward swirling energies producing, in their turn, further energy centers for the Logos or what you would call stars.
Questioner: Are these central original creations or clusters what we call stars?
Ra: I am Ra. This is correct.
However, the closer to the, shall we say, beginning of the manifestation of the Logos the star is, the more it partakes in the one original thought.
Questioner: Why does this partaking in the original thought have a gradient radially outward?
That’s the way I understand your statement.
Ra: I am Ra. This is the plan of the one infinite Creator.
The One Original Thought is the harvest of all previous, if you would use this term, experience of the Creator by the Creator.
As It decides to know Itself It generates Itself, into that plenum full of the glory and the power of the one infinite Creator which is manifested to your perceptions as space or outer space.
Each generation of this knowing begets a knowing which has the capacity, through free will, to choose methods of knowing Itself.
Therefore, gradually, step by step, the Creator becomes that which may know Itself, and the portions of the Creator partake less purely in the power of the original word or thought.
The Creator does not properly create as much as It experiences Itself.
