“The Circuit does not go by chance but under the Reason-Principle of the living whole; therefore there must be a harmony between cause and caused; there must be some order ranging things to each other’s purpose, or in due relation to each other. …
“In our dance-plays there are outside elements contributing to the total effect—fluting, singing, and other linked accessories—and each of there changes in each new movement: there is no need to dwell on these; their significance is obvious. But besides this there is the fact that the limbs of the dancer cannot possible keep the same positions in every figure; they adapt themselves to the plan, bending as it dictates. … The dancer’s mind is on his own purpose; his limbs are submissive to the dance movement. … The whole play of the entire person dictates the necessary position to each limb and member as it serves the plan.” ~Plotinus
The Circuit of the Dance
Most of us today think of electronics when we hear the word “circuit,” but it has a much broader meaning. Virtually anything which has a circular nature to it can be considered a circuit. You plant seeds, grow vegetables, save some of the seeds of the vegetables to plant again next spring. That’s a circuit. The physical universe is a great circuit with each galaxy being a sub-circuit and each star system within the galaxy being lower sub-circuit. The physical universes is a sub-circuit of the All with its nine dimensions of matter (dimensions 1-4) and spirit (dimensions 5-9).
These circuits behave in ways that are very similar to an electrical circuit. If you want to increase the flow of energy in an electrical circuit, you increase the power source. If you want to decrease the energy flow, you add a resistor to the circuit. A break in the wire that forms the circuit will shut the flow down completely.
In our physical bodies, one of the circuits is the circulatory system that carries blood. If the veins and arteries get clogged, it acts like the resistors in electrical circuits to reduce the flow of blood. If we go outside in cold weather without a coat on, the heart will start beating faster to increase blood flow. Then there is our memory circuit. The eyes pick up light and translate it into electrical signals sent to the brain. The brain interprets it, then decides how to react. It also stores the image in our memory. Bad eyesight can make those memory images blurry. A damaged optical nerve can do the same. But even more, belief filters in our brain change what we see all the time, and we are not even aware of it.
