Do you use the Platonic solids during fusion meditation?

You have to convert the flat plane bagua into its three dimensional shape, which is a cube. Cube has eight points, same as bagua. When you study the bagua as sacred geometry, you realize it is the “sphering of hte cube”, the next dimension up of the “squaring of the circle”. This is one of the primary challenges of sacred geometry, to find the shape that expresses the balance between matter (cube, square) and spirit (sphere, circle), so that they harmoniously intersect each other and share the exact same center point.
So when you do the “yang” practice of spinning baguas in fusion, you are really just sitting at the center point of the cube/sphere and using the bagua shapes in all directions to fuse the emotional “shape patterns” of your energy body back into their spherical, i.e. neutral unshaped form. But still continue feeling at the same time.
May be hard to get this without drawings.

Would you not want to associate the organ with particular Platonic solids as well as particular colors? 5 solids, 5 elements.
Speaking of the Bagua, do you associate each trigram with the chakras/platonic solids?
The bottom three chakras seem obvious.April 15, 2005 at 12:51 am #4212
You can develop any system you want. But just be aware you are creating a hybrid between two different systems of five elements, Taoist-Lemurian orgin and Greek-Atlantis origin..
Trigrams would not each have a solid, only the cardinal directions and center.
And the greek version of the “platonic” is a bit dualistic, with the solids reprsenting the true, and physical phenomena groping around the cave.
I usually try to extract the essence of something if I am going to put it into a different system, rather than simply mixing systems. I.e. you don’t need chakaras if you have energy channels and dantian.
