THE MYSTIC SPIRALE: Journey of the Soul by Jill Purce III
Flow, form and symbol
Thanks to this important asymmetry, the spiral can only be superimposed on its counterpart, which runs differently, by folding it through an additional spatial dimension: a two-dimensional spiral must be lifted from the side and guided through three dimensions, a three-dimensional spiral through four, and so on.
The direction is a sign of the dimension and in the traditional thinking of the „world“ through which the spiral rotates. Since our world is predominantly right-wing, one thinks of the world above as „left-wing“, which implies the passage of another dimension. According to the Jewish mystical tradition, the Kabbalah, there are four worlds which all exist negatively beyond their positivity. Only outside the relative world of space and time is it no longer possible to turn an asymmetrical figure through the next dimension of space in order to bring it into line with its mirror image.
The universal spherical vortex is perhaps the symbol with which we can most comprehensively depict our cosmic journey. William Blake wrote in his poem „Milton“
The nature of infinity is this: That everything has its
Own vortex, and when once a traveller thro‘ Eternity
Has pass’d that Vortex, he perceives it roll backward behind
His path, into a globe itself unfolding like a sun.
Thus is the heaven a vortex pass’d already, and the earth
A vortex not yet pass’d by the traveller thro‘ Eternity.
