The Split of the Mother Energy – The Law-Governed Structured Flow of the Basic Energies
and the Six Planes of Existence
Comments on the diagram:
Note: The mother energy, the primary and supreme basic energy, is often expressed with the number 7 from the perspective that it holds the other six basic/ working energies, which are numbered from 1-6, according to the diagram above.
– The vertical perspective (from the bottom up) illustrates the never-ending cyclical flow of each energy, from minimum to maximum, to a new minimum and so on …
– The horizontal perspective illustrates that all six stages are invariably represented at all levels.
The six vertical cone-shaped figures symbolize the six paraphysical basic energy bodies and their energy cycles – the law-governed flow of the basic energies. Reading the diagram from left to right:
1. The body of instinct energy (red), 2. body of expansion/ action energy (orange), 3. body of contraction/ perception/ feeling energy (yellow), 4. body of intelligence energy (green), 5. body of intuition energy (blue), 6. body of memory energy (indigo) and the next coloured column shows the signature colour of the energy that is predominant at each level, followed by the name of the dominant energy and the name of the plane of existence each specific basic energy combination creates.
The number (20, 40, etc.) in each energy body indicates the impact factor and penetrative power of each basic energy. It is worth noting that the impact factor and penetrative power of the mother energy is 420 which is the sum of the six basic energies.
The upward-pointing arrow on the left side illustrates the passage of time. When the diagram is read vertically, from the bottom up, it is seen that each of the basic energy bodies goes through a growth and reduction process that (as previously mentioned) spans six stages: a minimum/ latent stage, two growth stages, a maximum/ culmination stage, two reduction stages (followed by a new minimum stage, and so on continuously, in an eternal cyclical process).
Reading horizontally, the diagram shows the six basic energy bodies and their different combinations in the six different planes of existence, I-VI.
The section between the two bold black horizontal lines comprises all six planes of existence and is termed a spiral cycle/turn. Every new spiral cycle leads to completely new planes of existence with new dimensions, life forms, organisms and experiences.
The six planes of existence are named after their dominating basic energy: the instinct plane, the expansion/ action plane, the contraction/ perception/ feeling plane, the intelligence plane, the intuition plane and the memory plane. Martinus has also named the physical planes of existence based on how we, as humans, perceive them and the paraphysical planes according to the description of their state and characteristics.
- The first basic energy combination on the left, the instinct energy is at the maximum stage = instinct plane also termed plant kingdom – physical status. Life-units with this energy combination represent what we know as plants.
- Second combination: expansion/ action energy at maximum stage = expansion/ action plane also termed animal kingdom – physical status. Humans at the current level belong to this realm.
- Third combination: contraction/ perception/ feeling energy at maximum stage = contraction/ perception/ feeling plane also termed real human kingdom (human kingdom) – transition zone/ plane; initially physical status then turns into paraphysical status.
- Fourth combination: intelligence energy at maximum stage = intelligence plane also termed wisdom kingdom – paraphysical status.
- Fifth combination: intuition energy at maximum stage = intuition plane also termed divine kingdom – paraphysical status.
- Sixth combination: memory energy at maximum stage = memory plane also termed bliss and mineral kingdom – transition zone/ plane; initially paraphysical status then turns into physical status.
As stated above, there are two physical planes of existence (I and II), two paraphysical planes (IV and V) and two planes that constitute transition zones/ planes between physical and paraphysical existence (III) and between paraphysical and physical existence (VI).
The Combinations of the Basic Energies in the Six Planes of Existence (PBJ No. 5)
Note: Per Bruus-Jensen’s symbol No. 5 can in this context be seen as a somewhat simplified version of Martin’s symbol No. 13, The Eternal World Plan, which is the reason that Per Bruus-Jensen’s symbol No. 5 is presented before it.
Comments to the symbol (PBJ No. 5):
The other coloured circle symbolizes the six planes of existence in the spiral cycle/ turn illustrated by the signature colour of the dominant basic energy in each plane. The red section at the bottom is the instinct plane or plant kingdom dominated by instinct energy ‒ followed on the right by orange: expansion/ action plane or animal kingdom dominated by expansion/ action energy ‒ yellow: the contraction/ perception/ feeling plane or real human kingdom dominated by contraction/ perception/ feeling energy ‒ green: the intelligence plane or wisdom kingdom dominated by intelligence energy ‒ blue: the intuition plane or divine kingdom dominated by intuition energy ‒ light indigo: the memory plane or bliss and mineral kingdom dominated by bliss and memory energy.
The six smaller circles illustrate the total energy combination at the culmination stage in each plane of existence.
We are not going to delve into this symbol for the moment but would like to note that the white colour (triangles and circle) symbolises X1 (the I/ subject) and the violet colour symbolises the mother energy X2 (the creative and experiential ability).
The six planes of existence constitute prerequisites and conditions for widely different forms of life and experiences and satisfy X1’s /the I’s primordial urge and its need for change and renewal according to the changing and renewal principle/ hunger and satiation principle.

Brief Summary and Comments adapted to Ontology II by Therner & Loeth:
The outermost white and black circles at the edge of the symbol indicate the interaction between darkness and light in the six planes of existence, with the culmination of darkness in the animal kingdom (expansion/ action plane, orange-dominated section). It is in this physical evolutionary phase that egoism and ignorance of the true nature of life are dominant, resulting in war, murder, torture, slavery, environmental damage etc., and beings killing and eating other beings who are day-conscious on the physical plane. This is in total contrast to the state of cosmic consciousness in the paraphysical planes of existence where light dominates (the culmination of light is in the intuition plane/ divine kingdom, blue-dominated section), characterized by ultimate knowledge and understanding of life and reality, altruism and unconditional love.
The next multicoloured circle (divided into six sections) illustrates the changing combinations of the basic energies, which form the “matter” that makes up and characterizes the six planes of existence. In other words, the six planes of existence consist of these specific basic energy combinations.
The red-dominated section at the bottom represents the instinct plane (plant kingdom), followed, to the right by the orange-dominated section representing expansion/ action plane (animal kingdom) – culmination of darkness, then the yellow-dominated section representing the contraction/ perception/ feeling plane (real human kingdom), the green-dominated section representing the intelligence plane (wisdom kingdom), the blue-dominated section representing the intuition plane (divine kingdom) – culmination of light, and the pale indigo-dominated section representing the memory plane (bliss and mineral kingdom).
The six rhomboid figures symbolize the combination of the basic energies in the living being’s organism and consciousness as a whole at its culmination level, as it appears in each of the six planes of existence.
The white triangle in the center symbolizes the I (X1) of the infinite and all-encompassing Cosmos, the surrounding violet color symbolizes the mother energy (X2). The six white circles symbolize the I (X1) of an individual/ life-unit on each plane of existence (X3), and the rhomboid figures (connected to the white circles) illustrate the basic energy combination within each of these six beings/ individuals.

Martinus’ symbol No 14, The Cosmic Spiral Cycle I
Brief Summary and Comments adapted to Ontology II by Therner & Loeth:
(The symbol on the right has been adjusted slightly for clarification.)
The symbol illustrates the seven cosmic spiral cycles of the never-ending cosmic evolutionary spiral with physical and paraphysical planes of existence: red = instinct plane (plant kingdom), orange = expansion/ action plane (animal kingdom), yellow = contraction/ perception/ feeling plane (real human kingdom), green = intelligence plane (wisdom kingdom), blue = intuition plane (divine kingdom), pale indigo = memory plane (bliss and mineral kingdom).
The seven spiral cycles from A-G encompass different life forms, from the micro-cosmos A to the macro-cosmos G. Each of the seven spiral cycles includes life-units with seven different main organism structures (expressed by Martinus as we know them from our human perspective) according to the organism principle:
A. elementary particles, B. cells, C. organs, D. organisms, E. planets, F. solar systems, G. galaxies.
These organism structures A to G represent the seven main principles for organisms and they are repeated endlessly in constantly renewed and varying versions, both “up” in the infinite macrocosm and “down” in the infinite microcosm.
It should be added that there are several intermediate principles and variants of those principles in addition to the seven main organism principles.
The type of organism that each organism principle (A-G) represents, constitutes an extension of the I’s (X1’s) creator and experience ability (X2) − a tool that enables creation and experience, for example in the physical material world we know. One and the same organism principle (A-G) applies throughout an entire spiral cycle for each life-unit/ individual, but the organism evolves and adapts to the plane of existence that the individual belongs to.
The organism spiral (D at the meso-cosmos level) includes and represents our own current level of development.
The symbol also illustrates how life organizes itself as “life within life” according to the life-unit principle. For instance, we (our organism represents the organism principle and belongs to the organism spiral) provide living space for micro-beings; organs C, cells B and so on “down” in the microcosm – and we are also micro-beings, obtaining our living space from larger macro-beings; the planet Earth E, the solar system F, the galaxy G. “After” the galaxy spiral follows a completely new version of the elementary particle spiral A and so on. As mentioned above, the seven organism principles are developed and renewed in every new spiral cycle …
