Re: THREE Aspects of Realtiy, Life...

I am somewhat familiar with the writings of HT Laurency but not with
the writings of PG Bowe. By the way you present their basic theories,
I find the most important factor missing. And that is the factor of Spirit.

Not enough emphasis is laid on the fact that Spirit-men reincarnate
from the Plane of Pure Spirit down to the Monad Plane in order to
enter the Spirit Wheel. They depart in large groups from high Spirit
domain and are received by the Mother Power of Monad Form. By that
Being the Spirit-men are deprived of their Spirit power and gradually
transmuted to a state of Spirit embryo embraced and clothed within a Monad.

When the groups have been embraced that way they are transferred into
the Monad Wheel. Thus the Spirit-men begin again the long journey they
have passed before and break their way to the lower worlds by forming
a Soul and incarnating in a person.

This is a long and a hard Way. The "I" factor makes the consciousness
and the "I" is never lost.

I've come across the following idea by two
independant 'theosophical' authors, HT Laurency and PG Bowen. I
wonder if anyone else has seen this idea about THREE aspects as the
makeup of Life or Realtiy. Both authors put it about the same way.
Bowen defined his SUBSTANCE as "metaphysical matter." The other two
aspects, Motion (or Energy) and Consciousness are stated about the
same. Both write that these aspects are intertwined and can not be
known apart from each other, and that all THINGS can be known by
their combination of the aspects.
I wonder where this idea originated. Has anyone here seen this idea

HT Laurency puts it like this:

"Reality consists of the following three immediately given and self-
evident absolutes:

motion (force, energy),
and consciousness.

They are the ultimate explanatory elements of
everything. They explain themselves by their modes of being, and
cannot be further explained, only be ascertained by everybody." -
Philosopher's Stone by HT Laurency

"Existence is a trinity of three equivalent aspects: matter, motion,
and consciousness. None of these three can exist without the other
two." - Knowledge of Reality by HT Laurency -

PG Bowen put it like this:


BEING (or any Being) in ultimate metaphysical analysis is a compound
of three elements, none of which has any independent manifestation,
or is knowable otherwise than in interaction with the other two.
They are CONSCIOUSNESS, ENERGY and SUBSTANCE. All three exist in
everything? in every aspect of LIFE, whether that aspect is
perceived objectively through the senses or subjectively as an image
in Consciousness, as a thought or a feeling, or in any other way.
By the degree to which any one element is conditioned by the other
two the nature or character of every Being and thing is determined...

Now LIFE, the ultimate NOUMENON, because it manifests to perceiving
Consciousness always in Being, and never otherwise, is itself
conceived to be a metaphysical compound of the three primary
elements each in its noumenal, or unconditioned, state. LIFE is
therefore pure CONSCIOUSNESS, pure ENERGY, pure SUBSTANCE, and
equally none of these, but a thing entirely inconceivable?an
unconditioned compound of the three." - The Occult Way by PG Bowen -
