Well folks let's take you on a grand exploration through the grandest of all numbers
and why it has everything to do with nothing
and just about nothing to do with everything.
Let us start at the beginning with the Sigil/ Glyph's history
WIKI GET WALKIN'
"The glyph we use today in the Western world to represent the number 2 traces its roots back to the Brahmin Indians, who wrote 2 as two horizontal lines (it is still written that way in modern Chinese and Japanese). The Gupta rotated the two lines 45 degrees, making them diagonal, and sometimes also made the top line shorter and made its bottom end curve towards the center of the bottom line. Apparently for speed, the Nagari started making the top line more like a curve and connecting to the bottom line. The Ghubar Arabs made the bottom line completely vertical, and now the glyph looked like a dotless closing question mark. Restoring the bottom line to its original horizontal position, but keeping the top line as a curve that connects to the bottom line leads to our modern glyph."
Pretty neat eh? There's a good lesson about sigilization in there if yr. smart enough to pick up on it.
But that doesn't answer any questions, does it now?
Two besides bein' the oddest prime number is a very useful glyph for understanding some very profoundly difficult philosophical concepts.
"Two represents Duality/Dialectic
(among other things......such as Chaosmos/Universe, The House, "I Know", In, At, With.... and goodness knows what else....)
This describes humanity's usual condition. Happiness exists only because of misery, pain because of comfort, good because of evil, yang because of yin, mass because of energy, black because of white, birth because of death, and existence because of non-existence. All phenomena must be paired, as the senses are only equipped to perceive differences. The thinking mind has the property of splitting everything it encounters into two, as it is a dualistic thing itself. Yet there is a part of man which is of a singular nature, although the mind is unable to perceive it as such. Man considers himself a center of will and a center of perception. Will and perception are not separate but only appear so to the mind.
Now, Consider the world of apparent dualisms we inhabit. The mind views a picture of this world in which everything is double. A thing is said to exist and exert certain properties. Being and Doing. This calls for the concepts of cause and effect or causality. Every phenomenon is seen to be caused by some previous thing. However this description cannot explain how everything exists in the first place or even how one thing finally causes another. Obviously things have originated and do continue to make each other happen. The "thing" responsible for the origin and continued action of events is called Chaos...."
However we did smell a hint of the answer back there.......who are We, our self? & what is the Them or the Others? Now there begins a very interesting question.........Who the Fuck are you Really? Have you always been that way? Are you the same person now as when that question was asked? Now don't answer that now.....but you will have to think about it eventually (possibly now). Now, ask what isn't you?..... now let's think about what, say some jerkoffs on the street, what they think about you......do you believe that is actually you? Well i'm sure most would say of course not. AH but that is a matter of perception & one's interpretation! You are not the one perceiving Yourself nor are you the one interpreting said signals!.......However is that "interpretation" of oneself still you? or is it a representation? or is it even ones mental creation? (but aren't all things we interpret mental creations based off the physical?) Why is that? Have we found the common ground? Between the One divided into Two we find the Third that unites them all in their nothingness of illusion? Ahh the word games start at this point and it feels like yr. gettin' squirreled around with a rusty sharpened rake on the ol' think muscle. No matter. But at this point you start to have an idea of how consciousness works. All Words bring Duality/Illusion. They can never actually describe the Thing itself ....however through the synthesis of object with subject do we start getting some most fascinating results (and to the point.....)
Now what we here at the Number Two argue is that we must use this dual drive to recombine/evolve into new, complex and bizarre formations/defamations/creations.
The motto PER FUCK TRANS UNUM is a reference to this.
Breaking it down:
FUCK= the ecstasy of dissolution/creation/coming together/break through/do (essentially through the coming together of opposites)
This can even be more simply put down as
....also known as THEE essential Formula/Answer to Manifestation/Annihilation/Liberation in CHAOSMOS
AHEM, let us elaborate some mere..........
"0 or "None," or "Naught", refers to the un-differentiated non-dual substance, cognate with the Hindu 'Brahman' and/or 'Shiva,' the Chinese 'Tao,' the Buddhist 'Adi-Buddha,' the Gnostic 'pleroma,' Chaos etc. This "None" is another name for "Unity," and is used to imply the endless continuity of this substance since the Idea of Nothing is essentially impossible and beyond the Human Mind to fathom (seeing as it IS someTHING) thus one will never get to the end of it seeing as it would contain the essence of everything since Nothing obviously means just that, Nothing; it has no qualities nor quantities. Thus Zero is Infinite Potential und Infinite Possibilities. A force that can not cease in the universe since it cannot be contained nor restrained in any witch way.
Now, when we say that the cosmos sprang from the 0, what kind of 0 do we mean? By 0 in the ordinary sense of the term we mean 'absence of extension in any of the categories...' Nothingness is that about which no positive proposition is valid. We cannot truly affirm: 'Nothingness is green, or heavy, or sweet...; Let us call time, space, being, heaviness, hunger, the categories... This is the Non-Dualistic idea of the future of man; his personality, bereft of all its qualities, disappears and is lost, while in its place arises the impersonal Unity, The Pleroma, Parabrahma, Tao, The All of the Hermetics or the Allah of the Unity-adoring followers of Mohammed. Unity is thus unaffected, whether or not it be extended in any of the categories. It is also known as the Idea of pure Ecstasy where the Ego/Mind is lost completely in the envelopment of utter Rapture which isn't. While unique, it is all identical and can go through all space/time just to get there.......even though its already there and doesn't have to go anywhere since it is everywhere....hot damn this continues to be very elusive yet constantly continuous constant.......plus its trickier than teaching someone how to set up & program a VCR which thankfully are being phased out for newer, more complicated technology (just like our theories of no-ting).
.....HOWEVER it is always possible to reduce any expression to Nothing (0) by taking any two equal and opposite terms ((+1) (-1)). Therefore to be able to get any expression that we want from Nothing; we merely have to be careful that the terms shall be precisely opposite and equal. Duality may be an unavoidable consequence of manifestation but at least one can aspire to choice in the matter.(yuck yuck)
Now 2 we've already discussed and all at least familiar with: the world of many dualities including light & dark, pain & pleasure, hot & cold, good & bad, etc. This world of "Two" is also known as "the Many/Multiplicity" (as opposed to the One or None), we have Consciousness since our awareness of ourselves presupposes "another" separate from ourselves, often labeled the 'environment,' and "Universe" because this world of duality is what most men call " Universe." O TE? It is the very experience of the many possibilities.This state is also called "Hell" in that this state of duality, of division, IS the cause of suffering. The ill springs from the belief in two things, the Self and the Not-Self, the Perceiver and the Perceived and the apparent conflict between them.
Ultimately, therefore, the problem is how to rectify this perception of duality & proceed to attain to the apprehension of unity.Since we live in this world of duality & division, our natural solution is to somehow become whole by expanding ones consciousness(which is incredibly difficult and quite fleeting). Now the problem there-in lies that said Duality necessary for our consciousness tends to happen to be expressed in a very off kilter, antagonistic and out of control manner leading to all kinds of trouble. The way (THE WAY) then seems to be achieving a Perfect Balance or at least a dynamic dance by breaking through these two opposing forces/ideas until they are transcended, transformed and focused into a more beautiful harmony that assists the fullest realization of ones potentialities (or something like that anywhichways..). "This unity which appears to the mind to exert the twin functions of both the will and perception is called Kia/Ain/No-Thing by those who be in the k-now. Sometimes it is called the spirit, or soul, or life force, instead. Kia appears to be the consciousness, it is the elusive "I" which confers self-awareness but does not seem to consist of anything itself. Kia can sometimes be felt as ecstasy or inspiration, but it is deeply buried in the dualistic mind. Kia/Existenz etc. contains the twin impulses (another duality) to immerse itself in duality(per fuck) and to escape from duality (trans unum). It will continuously reincarnate (in whatever way it wants as shall we) until the first impulse is exhausted. The second impulse is (what all strive for), being the root of the mystic quest, the union of the liberated spirit with the GREAT spirit."
This is essentially what was meant by "Original Sin" or "The Fall" and then the Idea of Tikkun or Atonement since we all fall for that very purpose, to pick ourselves up. Space/Matter/Forces/Ourself/ves are "divided for love's sake, for chance of union," therefore division is not purely suffering but it is what allows us to unite in love and ecstasy. Without division there could be no love, for love requires both a lover and a loved one. All manifestation may be imperfect but only appears so to conceal this perfection process which is described commonly as "the Great Work" and happens to be the essence of the Great Work (or as we have dubbed the G Dub) that essentially could be defined as learning to become more well suited with every aspect of oneself/non self to make ones Life/Universe/Everything come delightfully together to further progress into the strange and unusual.
