Bagua

Bagua


Bagua means the eight symbols or the eight trigrams that are the eight components of an octagon surrounding a Tao symbol of balance between Yin and Yang.

In Taoist cosmology, Bagua (also Pa Kua) is heaven. The term ‘Heaven’ was derived from “Fu Xi” Bagua (Earlier Heaven) and “King Wen” Bagua (Later Heaven).

“Fu Xi” Bagua is the old heaven or the first layer of heaven, and “King Wen” Bagua is the new Heaven or the second layer of heaven. The third heaven is represented by the Tao symbol of balance at the centre of the octagon.

Tao is the cosmic tree (the tree of life) at the center of the world, and Bagua is the chain surrounding the tree. This means that Bagua is the octet and the chains are the eight hexagons constituting the octet.

A hexagon is equal to 1 bit and the octet is equal to 8 bits (corresponding to the eight trigrams or the eight symbols).

Binary digits in Malkuth and the ten sefirot (ten decimals) are the cells of the tree of life.

John of Patmos described a vision of the first two layers of heaven as follows,
I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. (Revelation 21:1) “NKJV”
New Heaven: manifested later heaven, “King Wen” Bagua (the second layer of heaven)
The First Heaven: primordial earlier heaven, “Fu Xi” Bagua (the first layer of heaven)
The third heaven is the holy city (the New Jerusalem) described in Revelation 21:2. John described a vision of the third heaven as follows,
I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. (Revelation 21:2) “NKJV”
The Apostle Paul testified that there are three heavens:
I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago was caught up to the third heaven.  (2 Corinthians 12:2) “NIV”
The third heaven, the holy city, is Bagua Square described as follows,
The city is laid out as a square; its length is as great as its breadth. (Revelation 21:16) “NKJV”
Since the third layer of heaven is a square, the first and second heavens are squares.

The reality is that there are no three different squares. They are the same square in three different locations. The second heaven is the first heaven forty five degrees from its initial position and the third heaven is is the second heaven tilted 45°.

Since a square is made up of four equal sides, the Bagua (the two squares) is made up of eight sides. The eight sides of the Bagua are the sum of the four sides of the first square (the first heaven) and the four sides of the second square (the second heaven).

The Bagua, the sum of the new heaven and the old heaven, is an Octagon.

Holy of Holies

The Holy of Holies or the Most Holy Place is the Axis Mundi in the form of a brilliant or glowing transparent glass cube described as the holy city, the great city, the holy Jerusalem, the new Jerusalem, and the bride (the wife of the Lamb).

“Come, I will show you the bride, the wife of the Lamb.”      (Revelation 21:9) "NIV"
A cube is made up of six square facets, eight vertices and twelve edges. The eight vertices constitute space, the twelve edges constitute time, and the six square facets (or faces) constitute space-time where the three hands of time are reconciled to three dimensional space.

8 Vertices = Space

12 Edges = Time

6 Sides = Space-time

Space (the 8 vertices) is a compass and time (the 12 edges) is a clock, such that the cube (the Holy of Holies) is a compass clock.

The compass is the geographical axis, the clock is the celestial axis, and the cube is the Axis Mundi (the center of the world) where the celestial axis and the geographical axis are connected or u…

Tao is the Blessed Trinity

Tao (the Holy Spirit) is the third person of the Blessed Trinity. The other two persons are contained in the Holy Spirit, such that the Tao, though is one person, is the sum of the other two persons. The Tao is equal to three persons because the outer person is made up of an inner two persons. The two persons in the third person constitute the Dao.

The Blessed Trinity is the Circumbinary Disk, and the other two persons of the Blessed Trinity are the two binary black holes inside the Tao. The first binary black hole is the Father, the second binary black hole is the Son, and the Tao is the Holy Spirit.

T in the word Tao is the first letter of the prefix Tri-. Tri means three (3).
Examples of usage of the prefix Tri- are as follows:
Trioxide: a trioxide is a compound with three oxygen atoms.Trimester: a period of three months.Triad:a group or set of three related people or things. The Trinity is made up of three persons called the Blessed Trinity, and the Blessed Trinity is equal to the …

Right Angle

Right angle is the angle between two perpendicular lines. The first line is the vertical line representing the Father, the second line is the horizontal line representing the Son, and the right angle between the Father and the Son is equal to ninety degrees.

The Father and the Son are two axes: Y-Axis and X-Axis respectively. The vertical line is the Y-Axis, the horizontal line is the X-Axis.

The vertical line or the Father is the object and the horizontal line is the shadow of the object. The object is God and the shadow of the object is man. Man is the horizontal X-Axis on the ground because man was created from the dust (earth).

All go to the same place; all come from dust, and to dust all return. (Ecclesiastes 3:20) "NIV"
The man is the shadow of God because God created man in his own image and likeness.

God created mankind in his own image,in the image of God he created them;male and female he created them. (Genesis 1:27) "NIV"
This means that God is standing u…
