Fission and Fusion: The Old Consciousness in Contrast to the New

The following is an excerpt taken from from 'Fission an Fusion - Symbols of the Old World and the New' (Patrizia Norelli-Bachelet, 1989). The full article discusses our civilization's need for new non-toxic energy sources as a symbol of our need to evolve a new non-toxic consciousness; and invites the reader to see the deeper rhyme and reason underlying ordinary events and circumstances. The article begins: 'I have always sustained that the course of evolution of consciousness takes on this planet is easily discernible in a host of ordinary developments. That is, we can, when equipped with the proper keys of higher knowledge and trained to see in a new way, assess not only WHERE we are headed as a civilization but also at which point we stand in this transitional period.' A few sections of the article discuss how the Gnostic Circle is a key to understanding and aligning with the immobile core of being so that one's dynamism (or becoming) is akin to fusion - like the massive solar power of the Sun, producing no waste, rather than a dynamic fission whose byproduct is deadly waste.



The old consciousness in contrast to the new:


'...the old [consciousness] ‘creates’ but in such a manner that it produces ‘wastes’; and to such a degree that the benefits are ultimately cancelled out when a certain threshold is crossed. This critical threshold has been reached and as a civilisation we must come to terms with its implications. ...

'The phrase that best indicates the nature of this threshold is ‘creation or destruction’. In past articles I have emphasised the distinction that must now be made in the light of new attainments in the Yoga. It is the difference between DESTRUCTION and DISSOLUTION. I would like to discuss this to some extent, but the focus of the present article is rather the actual mechanism which distinguishes the old from the new in its cosmic and evolutionary workings.

'To illustrate, I shall give a brief presentation of the manner in which the new cosmos operates. And once again we shall investigate the BINARY nature of the old creation in order to comprehend better the essential differences between the two and the changes that must come about before the new creation can truly become a reality on Earth. Thus, one essential ingredient in a new cosmos based on an integral creation is that it must have a single ‘centre’, like the Sun in our solar system. This centre/sun maintains the system or cosmos not by feeding off its orbiting, peripheral bodies, but simply by its presence or being. It is Being, as a result of IMMOBILITY which holds the cosmos together. This is the definition of an ‘axis’, in this cosmology. [bold added]


'Another distinction must be made at this point. Immobility in terms of an individual’s realisation is not to be confused with equanimity. The latter is largely a psychological condition, whereas immobility is a condition of being. When through the Yoga the new alignment is brought about in one’s consciousness-being, this axis is forged and the realisation of Immobility is achieved.


'This condition produces a situation in which there is no collapse, no caving in. In the core of a sun we find this condition and hence it supports the play of its orbiting bodies, creates ORDER and HARMONY and a truly CREATIVE manifestation. Energy in the core comes about by alignment, or a special convergence of ‘orbits’ or ‘directions’, as I have called them. What this superior alignment produces is a self-contained, self-replenishing source of power, hence the Centre does not feed off any other body in its system; or rather, to explain the process more accurately: it does not feed off its own body.


'Fusion – the news of the day – produces energy similar to what is believed to transpire in the core of the Sun. This means a process of increase based on union, a joining of elements to create something else, rather than a shattering or a splitting of particles, the method employed in fission.' ...

This post as well as five out of six of the 2010 Circumsolatious posts so far, and probably many more to come, were born in a way from my first article of the year/decade: 'Being and Becoming'. Since then I have been somewhat compelled (and delighted) to dive into and expose different layers and facets of this issue. I hope some readers are enjoying the ride.

  1. INDEED I AM 'ENJOYING' THE RIDE GIVEN BY YOUR ARTICLES... THE TONE OF AUTHENTICITY HAS WAVED A 'RED FLAG' FOR ME TO EXAMINE ANY SUBTLE BELIEFS THAT BIND ME TO A STATIC POSITION OF "BEING" SEPARATED FROM "BECOMING". WHAT A TRAP I MAY HAVE FALLEN INTO!

  2. It is GOOD to hear from you that these post have invited some self-examination or examination of subtle beliefs. The trap you write of is one our entire civilization has fallen into over several millenia. Each person that crawls out of it feels like a miracle to me.
