Following will hardly receive general approval, but it matters not, for such is something not to be craved. In fact, it is of indifference what the
reader may think about it.
In the beginning
Imagine, that in the beginning everything was very simple; In the emptiness existed only a single element - the Singular. Whence it came from,
propably no one knows; most likely it has always existed, hence it is eternal. It is the archetype of elements, or the the most fundamental class.
In following presentation, the space (emptiness) is represented by zero (0), which is indivisible. It is the Kether, the crown, which can be
understood as domain. Number one (1) represents the Singular, or the Chokmah, wisdom. During the aeons of time, this Singular mutated by the
influence of forces that are present in Emptiness. This mutation became independent of Singular, formulating Binah, represented by number two
(2). It is then became the "bride" of the Singular. All together, there is the first trinity.
The complexity increases
This first trinity forms the basis of our existence. So in metaphorical sense it lays below us as a matrix. It is the context of life. This could be
the first creation, perfectly natural one, consisting force and matter. From here on, the complexity increases, as the two basic elements began to
If we think numbers 1 and 2 as elements, would not their addition then be 3, rather third emanation. So, the first two forms a compound which is
distinct of them. Then, this third element can form compounds with either one and two or even with both of them (3+1=4 or 3+2=5 or 3+2+1=6). By this
way, the complexity in Universe increases - just as it is increasing this very moment. It is called Evolution, not only Biological Evolution, but
Concluding, the increase of complexity seems to be an universal phenomenon. Of course, this is should be nothing new, as it can be observed by very
The ramifications of increasing complexity
We can observe the increasing complexity in almost everything, also in artificial institutions of mankind. We began with just man and woman, evolving
in family, followed by tribe and villages, into today's unions of nations, cities and so on. Not only these social institutions are affected by
complexity, but also economical and cultural ones.
The complexity also evolves at the biological level; the development of animal intelligence, and at it's apex is consciousness. Our intelligence is
nothing but result of this complexity. Our brains with it's myriad of functions are more complex matter than is found in plants for example.
What then happens, when we are not able to cope with the complexity? Burn-outs, schizophrenia, depression and so on at personal level; wars,
conflicts, oppression and so on at national level, strange mutations at biological level.
According to preceding, the recent emanations of the creation appears to be further away from their origin, yet they nevertheless are still connected
to it - They are what they are meant to be, evolved according to certain laws that governs the dance of the matter. While not wanting to make an
definitive opinion whether the increasing complexity is a good or bad thing, there certainly is something to think about.
