In an era that a world famous scientist declares a stand against linear thinking, deductions about changes in consciousness are impossible to resist. Murmurings of the Age of Aquarius are buried sky high in speculation. A silver lining that traces inky darkness combines predictions of a radical change in consciousness for everyone. A profoundly life changing epiphany that Edgar Mitchell imparts to the world is proof for what astrologers predicted long ago.
Imagine flying through space looking out the window of the Apollo 14 spacecraft. The vast world beyond the window is overpoweringly awesome. Yes, it’s enough to change a person for life. How it happened isn’t defined. The how factor illustrates a mystery. It is as cosmic as the view of a velvety star studded celestial surround.
The customary groundwork for disciplined thinking comes through what is known as Descartian logic. Another way to describe this methodology is “linear” thinking. In nature, there is no such thing as a straight line, and as it were, the age old system doesn’t serve reality. Descartes’ “I think, therefore I exist” is a phrase that falls very short of reality. Yet, long ago, the assignation of credibility Descartes received dominated science. It became a way to prove that which is true. This theory encompasses science and philosophy with far reaching effects on the world.
Former astronaut Mitchell questions the validity of this logic. It falls short because it is without consideration for that which is felt but unseen. Consider for a moment a new axiom – “I feel, therefore I exist.” This phrase is a better fit with the Age of Aquarius mindset. It is analogous to sympathy and understanding. Mitchell states Descartes neglected to include the “sixth sense” when determining his logic and reasoning philosophy.
Another example of a completely different outlook, astrology marks the angles of earth’s poles. When the poles are perpendicular as opposed to tilted, the formation is known by astrologers as a Grand Cross. Upon the occurrence of this alignment humanity inherits a new age consciousness – an Aquarian consciousness. In the end, the art of astrology and science may come together as history repeats itself.
By watching the vernal equinox changes, the axis of the earth is used as a measure. A long predicted alignment depicts a perfect cross intersecting with planet earth’s equator. This cross is known as the Cardinal Grand Cross. Cardinal refers to four astrology signs that are positioned respectively known as the four solstice/equinox points. These were meaningful to earliest survival, and now evocative something more.
Mankind no longer needs to spend so much time on primal survival. This gradually leads to more time for thought and wonderment. When the attention shifted to the night sky (one source of survival success) a fascination with cerebral function shifted human consciousness. Consequently, instead of a primal intuitive focus, the “I think, therefore I am” philosophy came to fore. This kind of linear thinking failed to comprehend the holistic nature of human beings.
It’s what Edgar Mitchell perceived in outer space with no words, but with a sixth sense leading him. It’s why he’s rejected Descartes’ promulgation. And it’s a shred of proof validating what astrologers have been predicting for a long time. Coined “Age of Aquarius” it’s known as a shift in evolutionary consciousness to astrologers. The pattern of a naturally occurring cosmic arrangement forms a cross visually (see illustration.) Hence Cardinal Grand Cross is here, and humanity is changing. “I feel, therefore I exist.”
