The key to and explanation of immortality are to be found in the basic nature of life; the X-Structure. During periods of our eternal evolutionary process, we live alternately in a physical world and in a paraphysical* world which presupposes and implies reincarnation. The X-structure demonstrates that all living beings have, in addition to the temporary physical body, an immortal paraphysical body/ structure, which the physical body is connected to and dependent on. This paraphysical body/ structure exists and operates totally independently of the physical body. This means that to “die” just implies a transition from physical life to a paraphysical continuation of life. The Cosmic Worldview describes the process of reincarnation, including how life after physical death continues in paraphysical dimensions/ planes of existence and the course of events that leads to a new incarnation. This also entails a new understanding of past-life memories, near-death experiences, after-death communication, etc.
We are given an account of how the paraphysical body is constructed and how it operates e.g., the stable storage units termed “ability-nucs”/ “talent cores”. The main functions of the talent cores are to store, accumulate and process all our personal experiences, abilities, skills, qualities, etc., in order to make it possible for us to reuse and develop them, and to take them with us from life to life. The talent cores are prerequisites for the development of all forms of life and evolutionary processes. Specific “organ-talent cores” contain information for the creation of organisms and are crucial to how things take their form, grow and evolve in a particular way (dismissing the traditional theory that all this complex form-shaping and development is merely genetically programmed). The primary form-shaping and evolving processes with all the underlying information are accumulated in the talent cores and activated at the paraphysical level. It should be emphasized that the talent cores/ ability-nucs are highly relevant in the field of epigenetics as they directly exert an influence on the genes of the DNA-spiral.
“Death is Life’s greatest surprise” – Martinus
The X-structure demonstrates the perception process which comprises three levels and “organic” structures (the total organism complex); physical, semiphysical and paraphysical. A description of how and why we have subjective phenomenal experiences, qualia – also provides a profound solution to the “explanatory gap” and the “hard problem of consciousness”. Martinus and Per Bruus-Jensen illustrate the semiphysical and paraphysical structures and their processes, which, side by side with the activities of the physical brain, constitute the foundation of our ability to experience, to remember, think, feel, etc. – in fact, of all activity within our consciousness. These paraphysical structures constitute an organic system that exists and functions independently of the physical body.
The talent cores/ ability-nucs (section 1) play a major role in the creation of qualia at all levels and dimensions. Specialized talent cores constitute a personal “perception archive”, (which includes all our earlier experiences, etc). The information stored in these talent cores gives “resonance” to new incoming objective impulses and influences how we transform, interpret and act on stimuli, i.e. the transformation of objective reality into personal subjective reality, (the bidirectional Reality-Consciousness Transformation Process, X-RCT Process, section 7).
The X-structure elucidates the underlying elements and processes of all mental activity and thus presents a new and completely fundamental explanatory model of Human Psychology. This involves many new and crucial dimensions including e.g. reincarnation perspectives, influences from past-lives, karma, etc.
The Cosmic Worldview also highlights the interaction of free will with the fundamental principles and natural laws prevailing in existence. It provides us with an explanation of the real links between cause and effect, actions and consequences, and thereby also awareness of how we ourselves determine and shape our future and destiny (the law of movement and the law of karma). In understanding this, humanity will develop an ever deeper sense of responsibility, empathy, and care for all life.
According to Martinus, humanity is at an evolutionary phase of development where our intuition* is at a minimum level but will gain strength as part of the ongoing evolutionary process; a phase during which our instinct* is diminishing, while both intelligence* and, particularly, intuition are increasing. This progressive energy change and development in our psyche and mentality also entails that egoism will gradually be replaced by altruism. Taken as a whole, this characterizes the new emerging paradigm with its increasing awareness of life and reality.
Instinct: automation, autonomy, automatic functions, tropisms, habitual patterns, routines, virtuosity, traditionalism, rituals, ability to believe even fanaticism, dogmatism.
Intelligence: analysis, logic, rationality, expediency, efficiency, recognition/ identification, reflection, calculation, foresight, imagination.
Intuition: synthesis, quintessence, instant understanding and knowing (independent of any previous studies and our ordinary perception and sensory organs), penetrating, immediate insight, design and generation of ingenious ideas and perfected constructive creativity.
Novel and ground-breaking evolutionary perspectives signifying a new era in Biology. All life evolves in a law-governed evolutionary process in the form of “spiral cycles” which gradually lead to ever higher forms of life – the Cosmic Evolutionary Spiral. Every spiral cycle/ turn includes six fundamentally different planes of existence/ dimensions (corresponding to the Cosmos’ six main fields of consciousness) through which all living beings wander in ever new ways. We know three of these planes of existence as mineral kingdom, plant kingdom and animal kingdom. The other three dimensions are paraphysical, and we live on these planes of existence after death between our physical lives. Further ahead in the evolutionary spiral we live and develop in the paraphysical dimensions for long periods of time after which life continues again in physical dimensions, but then of a completely new character.
During the embryonic and fetal periods (from zygote to birth) we repeat earlier stages of development of our current spiral cycle/ turn. This “repetition” can be observed and followed throughout the different stages; the creating and shaping of an organism by embryological processes of differentiation of cells, tissues and the development of organ systems, etc., where the organ-talent cores are of crucial importance (section 1). The stages of development that are farthest from our current level of development are repeated first and fastest. Martinus terms this process “the repetition”, which continues after birth and includes repeated sequences from past lives, lasting until the individual is about 28 years of age (applying to humans at the current level of development). The ongoing result of the Cosmic Evolutionary Spiral is an everlastingly renewed experience of life and evolution of consciousness.
According to Martinus, we (and all living beings) have two “pole-structures”; one “masculine pole” and one “feminine pole”. In males the masculine pole is dominant and in females the feminine pole is dominant. Our current development phase entails our moving towards a balance between our respective masculine and feminine poles.
This means that humanity is at the beginning of a profound transformation process of its sexuality and mentality, which at the same time implies a transition from egoism and selfishness to altruism. The evolutionary process from animal to the level Martinus terms “real human”, describes the current stage of human development, which can be illustrated by the Sphinx; the animal body (symbolizing the animal stage) with the human head (symbolizing the real human stage to come). This process is termed the ”transformation of the poles” and signifies an organic development from a so-called ”one-poled” state (distinctly male/ masculine or female/ feminine) to a ”double-poled” state which can be roughly described as androgynous (a combination of and balance between male/ masculinity and female/ femininity) which means that a new kind of human being is about to develop. The underlying structures and principles of this development process are described, (the complex transformation process from animal and egoism to real human and altruism). The “one-poled” state, i.e. sex and gender division, occurs in the physical planes of existence (section 4) beginning in the plant kingdom and culminating in the animal kingdom, where it subsequently decreases and the development of a ”double-poled” state begins and continues in a maturation process. The double-poled state is completed in the real human kingdom (which is a transition zone where physical life and existence pass on to paraphysical life and existence).
The terrestrial human being is not an animal in the purest sense, but he/she is not a finished human being either. He/she is a wounded refugee between two kingdoms.
“Sexuality” also takes on a whole new and far wider meaning, helping us to understand more deeply who we are and the developmental phase we are going through. We get new and logical perspectives on the transitional period we are living in, characterized in several different aspects by a “sexualized” society. The development phase to double-poled state means pervasive changes biologically, mentally and psychologically with subsequent problems and crises regarding sex, gender, identity, etc. All these are characteristic of the sometimes difficult and confusing evolutionary process that we are undergoing on the way to a double-poled state and an altruistic society.
The all-embracing Cosmos; in the Cosmic Worldview – Martinus Cosmology, the term “Cosmos” refers to and encompasses everything that exists – all worlds and dimensions, i.e. our own universe and beyond, including all forms of life and reality. Read more …
Life organizes itself as “Life within Life”, thereby existing in common interaction and mutual dependence. Life within life means that every being is both a macro-being, which provides living space for micro-beings – and also a micro-being, which gets its living space from a larger macro-being. – An organic and holistic structure. All living beings are immortal “life-units” linked together and parts of the infinite and living wholeness; the all-embracing, multidimensional Cosmos. Life is eternal and meaningful for every individual entity as well as for the totality/ wholeness.
The division of the Cosmos (the all-embracing wholeness) into life-units is primarily caused by one of the “Cosmic Creative Principles” (form-creating structuring principles that sustain and organize life and reality, section 9), termed the Life-unit principle*. Thus, this principle entails the division of the wholeness and structuring of energy into units/ quanta such as particles, cells, organs, organisms, planets, suns, galaxies. The life-unit principle is responsible for manifested reality’s fractalized structure and nature, its division into units of any form, including organisms for living beings. In other words, that the living Cosmos, on the manifested level, has divided and structured itself into living units/ living beings.
The complementarity of wholeness/ oneness and duality/ separation, as well as the “Structure of Entanglement” are formed and explained mainly by the life-unit principle.
(* also termed Matter and Life-Unit principle)
The X-Structure – the Basic Nature of Life and Reality. As this primordial form is unknown to man, Martinus expressed it with the letter X, also termed the “living Something”, the “living Being”. The X-structure constitutes the ultimate foundation and prerequisite for Life, Consciousness and Reality; for everything that exists, has existed and will exist. The X-structure is in principle the same for all forms of life including the infinite and all-embracing Cosmos, and its main function is the continuous creation of Consciousness/ experience.
The X-Structure with its Triplementary Principle (Triune Operating Principle) is activating and transforming X0 into X3. This transformation process is termed the Reality-Consciousness Transformation Process – X-RCT Process; the bidirectional manifestation-perception process from unmanifested initial reality/X0, into manifested objective reality/X3 obj. (manifestation) and the experience of it as qualia, subjective reality/X3 subj. (perception).
I.e. the X-RCT Process from emptiness and stillness (initial reality, X0) – to movement and quanta (objective reality, X3 obj.) – to qualia (subjective reality, X3 subj.).
The X-Structure and the X-RCT Process provide a profound solution to the “Hard Problem of Consciousness” (the mystery of experience, perception, qualia) and the “Hard Problem of Reality” (the nature of objective reality).

(This section is a direct continuation of section 7)
Everything created (X3) emerges as an expression of life and implies movement, and thus constitutes a contrast to the X0-nature of emptiness and stillness, (without contrast no experience). Creation involves conversion of energy and manifests itself as movement, namely the five universal classes of motion: 1. The “primordial motion” and the four so-called ”derived motions” in the physical world known as 2. Space, 3.Time, 4.Transformation, 5. Matter.
The primordial motion has both objective and subjective status and means positional motion “from A to B”, whereas the four derived motions are subjective versions (X3 subj.) and thus alternative representations of the objective primordial motion (X3 obj.), transformed by X1 in interaction with X2.
Martinus states: “The ultimate characteristic of life is movement – Movement is the manifestation of life”. In his teachings to Per Bruus-Jensen, he also emphasized that: “all motions within the infinite Cosmos neutralize each other, confirming the underlying all-embracing X0-nature of emptiness and stillness”.
The Cosmic Worldview presents a completely new concept of energy, by Martinus termed “Cosmic Basic Energy” – in fact consisting of seven extremely subtle, qualitative basic energies (also termed fundamental energies), each of which holds specific properties. Everything created in life and reality consists of these qualitative basic energies, from the very densest physical matter to the most subtle that exists including our thoughts, feelings, memories, etc. In fact, the infinite manifested Cosmos, consists of different combinations of these qualitative basic energies. In order to illustrate the specific qualities, impacts and strengths of the basic energies, Martinus gave them different signature colors and numbers that he consistently used in his symbols. It should be emphasized that the basic/ fundamental energies always operate together in different combinations (Martinus terms this topic “Cosmic Chemistry”). When you know these qualitative basic energies you will recognize them in everything and everywhere. Read more the Cosmic Basic Energies.
The primary basic/ fundamental energy, the “mother energy” holds and operates via a number of so-called “cosmic creative principles” also termed “morphogenetic effect constants”; form-creating and structuring forces that sustain and organize life and reality. For instance, we can empirically observe the effects of the mother energy’s morphogenetic effect constants in what we term the constants and laws of nature with their extremely delicate precision, etc. In other words, the appropriate functioning of the manifested multidimensional Cosmos is a result of these morphogenetic effect constants. The X2-function (section 7), with its creative principles/ effect constants, creates contrasts to the X0-nature of emptiness, stillness, wholeness, infinity, eternity, nonduality and nonlocality which is transformed and structured into energy/matter, movement, life-units, space, time, states, distances, etc. Read more the Cosmic Creative Principles.
The X2-function with its Cosmic Creative Principles/ Morphogenetic Effect Constants operates and functions as “transformation processes”, creating contrasts to the X0-nature e.g.:
• Wholeness → Life-units, separation, quantification…
• Emptiness → Energy/ matter
• Stillness → Movement
• Infinity → Space, distance
• Eternity → Time
From Physics we know that particles constitute an extremely tiny part of matter and that an apparently omnipresent void (99,999…9%) is dominant, i.e. almost 100% is just “emptiness”. Physicists refer to it as the zero point field or the quantum vacuum field and they have realized that it is actually not empty, but in fact, holds unbelievable concentrations of very subtle energy – the so-called vacuum or zero-point energy – without knowing what it is, nor its purpose.
The Cosmic Worldview explains the mentioned subtle vacuum energy as the seven qualitative cosmic basic/ fundamental energies (section 9). It also describes how these basic/ fundamental energies in the zero-point/ vacuum field constitute particles and matter and how particles actually are identical to these basic energies, although in a condensed form. In other words, particles are just densified energy (section 11). Einstein’s famous formula, E = mc² is expanded to X2 = mc², followed by a clarification of the energy concept which is shown to be immaterial at its roots – A New Era in Physics.
Physicists have worked intensively for a long time to understand our physical world, including to unify the four forces of nature: gravity, electromagnetism and the strong and weak nuclear forces into what they term the “Theory of Everything”, but so far without any complete solution. NCP X-AIONS has published (2012) Leif Pettersson’s ground-breaking material demonstrating a new model (completely based on Martinus Cosmology); “The Fundamental Energy Theory – FET”, that without any contradiction unifies the four fundamental forces of nature, and thereby meets the criteria for the “Theory of Everything”.
FET is primarily focusing on two of the qualitative fundamental/ basic energies; the “expansion energy” and the “contraction energy”, and how they are underlying and constituting the entire physical world. The other fundamental energies are also involved in these processes but to a much lesser degree. The expansion and contraction energies have totally opposite characteristics, i.e. there is tension between them. FET states that the interaction and tension between these two energies constitute the very basis of what physicists term force, particles, and matter. FET describes and explains the enigmatic dark matter and dark energy, the creation of particles from the zero-point field that in turn elucidates the phenomena of mass (Higgs field), curved space, the mechanisms of gravity and much more.

Martinus termed his intuitive knowledge “Spiritual Science”, presenting a new world-picture that also involves deep and logical explanations of the content of religions (using Christianity as its point of departure). Martinus clarifies evident misunderstandings and misinterpretations and provides a profound solution to the Theodicy problem which explains the causes of suffering and evil; intellectualizing the content of religions and, even more importantly, demonstrating that Love is the strongest and most powerful force.
Martinus’ Spiritual Science guides us in our ongoing development from faith (instinct-based ) to knowledge, understanding, and direct insight (intelligence and intuition-based ) about Life and Reality – the living, infinite, all-embracing Cosmos that has, through the ages, often been referred to as “God”, the “Divine” etc., of which all living things are part, as immortal life-units.
