The magician, one hand pointed up and another pointed down.
with the above top secret and below top secret i've always thought that the whole theme here on ats was "As above, so below." there are many
interpretations of the as above, so below.
well start with the quantum mechanic's observer effect which says that the observer must be considered apart of the system being observed.
In science, the term observer effect refers to changes that the act of observation will make on a phenomenon being observed. This is often the result
of instruments that, by necessity, alter the state of what they measure in some manner. A commonplace example is checking the pressure in an
automobile tire; this is difficult to do without letting out some of the air, thus changing the pressure. This effect can be observed in many domains
of physics. The observer effect on a physical process can often be reduced to insignificance by using better instruments or observation techniques.
However in quantum mechanics, which deals with very small objects, it is not possible to observe a system without changing the system, so the
observer must be considered part of the system being observed. wiki
Another way to interpret it is to say what happens above, corelates to what happens below, as in above the firmament and below the firmament. As in
the zodiacal signs and esoteric astrology have to do with the current events of earth. i once made a thread called The Harlot, The Virgin, The Dragon,
and The Bright Morning star... where i tried to peice together the signs or "wonders in heaven" of revelation because the bible says that god
created the lights in the sky to serve as seasons and signs.
in this thread we can see the constellations hydra standing before Virgo (the woman.)
Thread I was talking about
So when they say the as above, so below they are meaning that the events and things that happen on earth are related to signs in the sky, and that the
observer must be considered as apart of the whole, or the system being observed.
on wikipedia for as above so below it says that it originated in the vedas and can be found on the emerald tablets.
These words circulate throughout occult and magical circles, and they were recorded in Hermetic texts, although they originate in the Vedas.[citation
needed] The concept was later laid out in The Emerald Tablet of Hermes Trismegistus, in the words "That which is Below corresponds to that which is
Above, and that which is Above, corresponds to that which is Below, to accomplish the miracles of the One Thing". In accordance with the various
levels of reality (physical, emotional, and mental), this relates that what happens on any level happens on every other. This is, however, more often
used in the sense of the microcosm and the macrocosm. The microcosm is oneself, and the macrocosm is the universe. The macrocosm is as the
microcosm, and vice versa; within each lies the other, and through understanding one (usually the microcosm) you can understand the other.[
