Everything comes in the form of a triad. Even Beelzebub’s Tales comes in three books. And the Legominism All and Everything also comes in three books. And then in each and every one of the three books of Beelzebub’s Tales, elaborations on the Omnipresent-Substance Okidanokh are found. Very precisely, it is said in the first of the three books that only in the presence of the three holy-forces present in this Omnipresent-Substance, is phenomena complete, implying that for completion a triad is necessary. One can go deeper and take a look to the phenomenon know as electricity. In that same part of the book, electricity is called “the-cause-of-artificial-light.” It is obvious from the study of electricity and the Okidanokh that what is missing in the former is what is present in the latter, namely, the third force. In other words, electricity is a partial phenomenon while the Okidanokh represents the complete phenomenon.
In conclusion, for completeness a triad is needed.
If this is the case, and it seems that this is the case, why then only two and not three fundamental cosmic laws?
I am of the opinion that Mr. Gurdjieff wanted us to ask this question, which on the basis of what has been said above, is a legitimate question. In fact, I am of the opinion that he wanted us to go beyond the asking of the question and into the domain of finding the answer. After all, Beelzebub’s Tales finds completion in us. We complete the book. We are the seventh descent, the one that makes the book ascend into a higher octave. Mr. Gurdjieff again and again left pieces of the jigsaw for us to fit.
What is then the third fundament cosmic law?
It has to be a law that is both universal and of great importance in the arising of real phenomena in reference to the Whole, as it is the case for the sacred Heptaparaparshinokh and the sacred Triamazikamno, the two fundamental cosmic laws. Is there a law in the jigsaw or legominism that satisfies both of these two conditions? My workings on the book has shown me that indeed there is a law that is both universal and of great importance in the arising of phenomena. This law is the law-of-the-equilibration-of-vibrations.
I now claim that the third fundamental cosmic law is the law-of-the-equilibration-of-vibrations.
If we look in details to this law the first thing we find is that this law is discovered by Beelzebub during his sixth and last descent, the longest descent. During this descent the spaceship Karnak is returning to the planet Karatas after Beelzebub attends a conference at the planet Revozvrandendr. That is to say, during the first five descents the Karnak is falling towards the planet Revozvrandendr, while during the sixth descent the Karnak is moving away from it.
What is the nature of the conference Beelzebub attends at the planet Revozvrandendr?
We are never told. But it is in what we are not told that we find many clues to the hidden meaning of the material contained in the book. I now claim that it is during this conference that Beelzebub learns, among other things, about the third fundamental cosmic law.
Further examination of the law-of-the-equilibration-of-vibrations shows the importance of this law. It is in the proportionate interaction of quantity and quality that equilibrium is attained. An excess of quantity at the expense of quality and vice versa always brings some for of disequilibrium. Beelzebub discovers this law while examining the phenomenon of wars on earth. It is disequilibrium between quality of life and the resulting need for quantity of deaths that in great part accounts for the appearance of wars on earth.
One may even say that the law-of-the-equilibration-of-vibrations is the one bringing equilibrium between the first and second fundamental cosmic laws. This in itself and by itself qualifies this law as third fundamental cosmic law.
Of course, everything said above is mere speculation. But there is nothing wrong with speculation when it makes some sense. What has been said here is within the domain of common senses.
