• The Split/ Division of the Mother Energy
The Mother Energy
PART 2 begins with a Brief Overview of the Nature and Functions of the Mother Energy – the primary and supreme qualitative basic energy.
In this text, we have only used the term “basic energies” for the “basic” or “fundamental” energies.
The Mother Energy (signature colour violet, impact and penetrative power 420) – the primary and supreme qualitative basic energy constitutes the quintessence of the subject’s/ I’s (X1’s) ability to create and experience (X2). The mother energy is the very source of the six other qualitative basic energies, also termed working energies. These exist as potentialities within the mother energy and are governed and co-ordinated by the mother energy. From this perspective, the mother energy is defined as the first basic energy.
The mother energy is the guarantor of the cosmic world order, i.e., the finely-tuned and precise functioning and development of the manifested, multidimensional Cosmos, as this is a result of the cosmic basic energies and their specific combinations, and the effects of the so-called cosmic creative principles that also exist as potentialities within the mother energy.
The mother energy (X2) operates holistically and fully automatically according to the cosmic creative principles and their specific effect programs. These programs enable the transformation of immaterial initial reality (X0) into material objective reality (X3 obj.) and the experience of it as qualia/ subjective reality (X3 subj.). In this context, the cosmic creative principles function as form-creating effect constants/ morphogenetic effect constants.
The two main functions of the Mother Energy in summary:
1. The mother energy generates, regulates and co-ordinates the six other basic/ working energies and operates them in a specific cosmochemical manner in a law-governed, structured cyclical flow of particular combinations, thereby enabling all forms of creation to be infinitely varied. This division and conversion of the mother energy, the so-called “split” of the mother energy will be presented in the next main section below.
2. The mother energy holds and operates via a number of so-called cosmic creative principles, also termed morphogenetic effect constants, which are formative 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.
To summarize, the appropriate functioning of the manifested, multidimensional Cosmos is a result of the basic energies and the morphogenetic effect constants.

The Split of the Mother Energy and the Law-Governed Structured Flow of the Six Basic/ Working Energies
The division and conversion of the mother energy and the law-governed structured flow of the six basic/ working energies into different specific combinations ‒ the so-called “split” of the mother energy ‒ occurs and is structured in the eternal body, (more on this subject below). This continuously ongoing process is an absolute and fundamental prerequisite for all forms of life, development and evolution. The six basic/ working energies are structured in six specific cosmochemical main combinations that follow a cyclical pattern, creating six different planes of existence with varying stages of development.
In other words, the six main combinations of the six basic/ working energies are a result of the continuously ongoing law-governed split/ division of the mother energy. This process follows a specific, predefined and consistent pattern that creates a cyclical flow for each of the six basic/ working energies. This flow has six main stages (see diagram below): a minimum stage, two growth stages, a maximum stage, two reduction stages, followed by a new minimum stage and so on. The pattern is cyclically repeated from minimum to maximum, to minimum, and so on … The flow of the six basic/ working energies is always structured in such a way that all six stages are invariably represented, as illustrated in the diagram below.
The diagram illustrates the cyclical flow of each basic energy, from left to right: instinct energy (red), expansion/ action energy (orange), contraction/ perception/ feeling energy (yellow), intelligence energy (green), intuition energy (blue), memory energy (light indigo) and the mother energy (violet, in the background) the source of them all.
1. The vertical perspective (from bottom up) illustrates the never-ending cyclical flow of each energy, from minimum to maximum, to a new minimum and so on …
2. The horizontal perspective illustrates that all six stages are invariably represented at all levels.
The Primary and Supreme Cosmic Creative Principle
The split of the mother energy – the eternal, continuously ongoing automatic division and conversion of the mother energy is to be seen as the primary and supreme cosmic creative principle*. It is one of the basic prerequisites for all forms of creation.
* Definition by Per Bruus-Jensen and Therner & Loeth
The nature and the split of the mother energy imply that the six basic/ working energies never appear separately, rather they always operate together in different combinations. Martinus terms this topic “cosmic chemistry”. The split/ division of the mother energy is fundamental and underlying all forms of cosmic chemistry, i.e. for everything created ‒ everything created consists of different cosmochemical combinations of the basic energies.
The Split of the Mother Energy from an Organic Perspective
Before we go further, let’s look at the split/ division of the mother energy from an organic perspective with the symbol (below) “The X-structure – The Living Being and the Organism (Xom3)” as starting point.
Comments to the symbol:
Note the text below refers especially to areas c, d and e on the symbol (Xom3) above.
c: the eternal body – primary level, primary psychic force field – mother energy level
d: the eternal body – primary level, primary psychic force field – the element of fate
e: the eternal body – secondary level, secondary psychic force field – the soul structure
The symbol (Xom3) illustrates the Total Organism Complex. In the eternal body, (primary level) area c we find the mother energy (violet) and in area d, the eternal body, (primary level, the element of fate) we find six open coloured circles with downward pointing rays that symbolize the six spiral centers also termed basic talent cores (or kernels). The six spiral centers/ talent cores constitute the six basic/ working energy centers of force; the center of instinct energy (red), the center of expansion/ action energy (orange), the center of contraction/ perception/ feeling energy (yellow), the center of intelligence energy (green), the center of intuition energy (blue), the center of memory energy (light indigo).
It is via the six spiral centers/ basic talent cores that the mother energy is split, divided and converted into the six basic/ working energies.
Below areas c and d on the symbol, we find area e, the eternal body, (secondary level, the soul structure) with six coloured areas symbolizing the six paraphysical basic energy bodies*, one for each basic/ working energy: the body of instinct energy (red), the body of expansion/ action energy (orange)**, the body of contraction/ perception/ feeling energy (yellow), the body of intelligence energy (green), the body of intuition energy (blue), the body of memory energy (light indigo). The structured flow of the basic energies in the six spiral centers is distributed “down” into these six basic energy bodies; i.e., the energy content in each of the basic energy bodies is determined by the energy distribution and flow from the corresponding spiral center (from the instinct center to the instinct body, etc.) The six basic energy bodies (eternal body secondary level, area e) are thus subordinate to the mother energy and the primary level of the eternal body (area c-d).
Note the text below refers especially to areas c, d and e on the symbol above.
c: the eternal body – primary level, primary psychic force field – mother energy level
d: the eternal body – primary level, primary psychic force field – the element of fate
e: the eternal body – secondary level, secondary psychic force field – the soul structure
*Martinus and Per Bruus-Jensen also termed the six paraphysical basic energy bodies the “spiritual bodies” and “paraphysical bodies”.
** Martinus often expresses the paraphysical basic energy body of expansion/ action energy as the physical body, which is a simplified description based on the culmination of the expansion/ action energy in the physical expansion/ action plane of existence also termed the animal kingdom to which we humans belong. Martinus, however, in explaining his teachings to Per Bruus-Jensen strongly emphasized that the temporary physical body constitutes a separate unit that is linked to the paraphysical body via a semiphysical structure. This semiphysical structure functions as a transition and transformation zone and organic link between the temporary physical body and the paraphysical eternal body. With Martinus’ consent PBJ named this semiphysical structure the “switching body” (area f on the symbol).
The six paraphysical basic energy bodies constitute interacting organ systems that are integrated into each other and form a complex homogeneous paraphysical organ system (often expressed as the soul structure by Per Bruus-Jensen).
The specific combination of basic/ working energies within the six energy bodies, in each individual life-unit, determines the current location of that individual’s life-unit in its ongoing eternal evolutionary process; its place in the cosmic evolutionary spiral. This means that the specific cosmochemical combination of the basic/ working energies within an individual’s life-unit governs its level of consciousness and organism structure.
We will now return to the split of the mother energy and the six main combinations of the basic/ working energies.
• The Combinations of the Basic Energies and the Six Planes of Existence ‒ overview
The diagram below illustrates the law-governed cyclical flow of the mother energy and the different combinations of the basic/ working energies. These six combinations generate six different physical and paraphysical planes of existence (also called natural kingdoms or realms) and each of them consists of different life forms with their corresponding energy combinations, (i.e. life-units with the dominance of instinct energy belong to the plane of existence in which the instinct energy dominates).
Comments to 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 six vertical cone-shaped figures symbolize the six paraphysical basic energy bodies and their energy cycles. Reading the diagram from left to right:
1. The body of instinct energy (red), 2. the body of expansion/ action energy (orange), 3. the body of contraction/ perception/ feeling energy (yellow), 4. the body of intelligence energy (green), 5. the body of intuition energy (blue), 6. the body of memory energy (light 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. Of note, is that the impact factor and penetrative power of the mother energy is 420 which is the sum of the six basic energies.
The upward-facing 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 area between the two bold black horizontal lines comprises all six planes of existence and is termed a spiral cycle (or spiral 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.
I. The first basic energy combination on the left, the instinct energy is at the maximum stage. Life-units with this energy combination represent what we know as plants, and create the plant kingdom ‒ instinct plane – physical status.
II. Second combination: expansion/ action energy at maximum stage = animal kingdom. Humans at the current level belong to this realm ‒ expansion/ action plane – physical status.
III. Third combination: contraction/ perception/ feeling energy at maximum stage = real human kingdom ‒ contraction/ perception/ feeling plane – transition zone/ plane; initially physical status then turns into paraphysical status.
IV. Fourth combination: intelligence energy at maximum stage = wisdom kingdom ‒ intelligence plane – paraphysical status.
V. Fifth combination: intuition energy at maximum stage = divine kingdom ‒ intuition plane – paraphysical status.
VI. Sixth combination: memory energy at maximum stage = bliss and mineral kingdom ‒ memory plane – 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).
We also refer to the two symbols below by Martinus and Per Bruus-Jensen illustrating
The Combinations of the Six Basic Energies in the Six Planes of Existence.
Comments to the symbol (PBJ symbol 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 plant kingdom dominated by instinct energy ‒ followed on the right by orange: the animal kingdom dominated by expansion/ action energy ‒ yellow: the real human kingdom dominated by contraction/ perception/ feeling energy ‒ green: the wisdom kingdom dominated by intelligence energy ‒ blue: the divine kingdom dominated by intuition energy ‒ light Indigo: the 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.
We will return to the six planes of existence after an overview of the cosmic evolutionary spiral below.
• The Cosmic Evolutionary Spiral
The nature of life and reality ‒ the X-structure ‒ is organic and holistic; life organizes itself as “life within life” according to the life-unit principle. This means that every being is both a macro-being, providing living space for micro-beings, and also a micro-being, which gets its living space from a larger macro-being. All living beings are immortal life-units linked together and parts of the living, infinite Cosmos.
According to the Cosmic Worldview, the Cosmos is undergoing an eternal dynamic cyclical evolutionary process; the “Cosmic Evolutionary Spiral”, illustrated below by Martinus’ symbol no 14, The Cosmic Spiral Cycle I. The ongoing result of the cosmic evolutionary spiral is the constant renewal and development of all forms of life – all living beings; an eternal evolution of life and consciousness.
The symbol on the right has been adjusted slightly for clarification
Comments to the symbols (Therner & Loeth):
The symbol illustrates seven cosmic spiral cycles/ turns of the never-ending cosmic evolutionary spiral with physical and paraphysical planes of existence. 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 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 …
From Darkness to Light
In every spiral cycle, the beings/ individuals experience a movement from darkness and ignorance to light and cosmic consciousness, and thereafter on to new experiences of darkness and light in new spiral cycles. Every new spiral cycle is experienced as a new variation. Martinus’ symbol no 13 The Eternal World Plan below illustrates the periods of darkness and light in the spiral. The symbol is complex and very extensive, we will now just look at a few details.
The contrast between darkness and light is necessary for our ability to perceive and experience, and their interaction is an effect of the contrast principle (without contrast no experience).
Comments to the symbol (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. It is in this physical development 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 a total contrast to the state of cosmic consciousness with its complete understanding of life and reality, altruism and love in the paraphysical planes of existence where the light dominates (the culmination of light is in the intuition plane/ divine kingdom).
The next multicoloured circle illustrates the six planes of existence and their energy combinations (the red-dominated area at the bottom represents the plant kingdom, followed to the right by the orange-dominated representing the animal kingdom (with the maximum of darkness) and so on …
The six rhomboid figures symbolize the combination of the basic energies in the being’s/ individuals’ total organism and consciousness at its culmination level, as it appears in each of the six planes of existence.
The Road towards Light
Before we go further, we shall briefly examine quick look at Martinus’ symbol no 4 The Road towards Light (below), illustrating the development from darkness to light.
The symbol illustrates the evolutionary process from mineral to real human. The individual life-units/ beings evolve from mineral life forms into plant life forms, then on into animal life forms and from there into human life forms. These different forms of life constitute the epochs of evolution that we know in daily life under the concepts of the mineral kingdom, the plant kingdom, the animal kingdom followed by the completely perfect or finished human kingdom.
Comments to the symbol (Therner & Loeth):
The horizontal figure in three coloured vertical sections represents a section of the Cosmos, these three-part sections symbolize living beings/ life-units (the X-structure). The white area symbolizes the being’s eternal I (X1); the violet area symbolizes its mother energy (X2) and eternal cosmic structure (X2/X3); the coloured area symbolizes its temporary physical organism (X2/X3) and its consciousness (X3).
The figures increasing in size from left to right indicate the beings’ evolution. The coloured areas symbolize the following planes of existence: indigo – the mineral kingdom, red – the plant kingdom, orange – the animal kingdom, yellow – the real human kingdom.
The area between the thin vertical white line in the animal kingdom and the yellow area (the latter part of the animal kingdom) symbolizes the unfinished human* being’s zone of evolution.
*Martinus defines humans on Earth as ”unfinished human” from the perspective that we still belong to the animal kingdom (orange). We have not yet overcome our ignorance, egoism and characteristic animal behavior to the advantage of human mentality and behavior. The finished human beings, who constitute the real and correspondingly finished human kingdom (yellow), will be the outcome of the present unfinished human kingdom on Earth. Our path from darkness to light involves a multitude of incarnations in the animal kingdom …
The yellow ray that extends from a small star to a larger one symbolizes what Martinus terms the “religious principle”, which means guidance via so-called world-impulses from higher planes of existence (also conveyed on Earth by “teachers/ precursors” in different fields) successively adapted to our current level of development. This stimulates the development of consciousness from a stage of belief in a deity, further on to materialism and atheism, and from there to cosmic consciousness.
(Ankarlänk till Dev….)
The illustration of Earth at the top of the symbol is placed directly above the unfinished terrestrial human beings’ stage of evolution.
The small diagram in the lower left corner (detail to the left) illustrates that the unfinished, cosmically unconscious human being (the small triangle) experiences and understands only his/her physical organism and part of physical life and reality. Finished, cosmically conscious human beings (the larger triangle with rays) have superior capabilities enabling them to sense and experience both the physical and paraphysical structures; thereby the real nature of life and reality.
• Selected Cosmological and Ontological Terms and Concepts
To understand life and reality on the six planes of existence it is necessary to become familiar with some cosmological and ontological terms and concepts, which are briefly presented below:
- Day-Consciousness and Night-Consciousness, Primary Consciousness and Secondary Consciousness, Primary state of life, Secondary state of life, Day- and Night-Consciousness in the six planes of existence
- The Pole-Structures, the transformation of the poles, one-poled state and double-poled state
- Reincarnation, the Reincarnation principle
1. Day-Consciousness and Night-Consciousness, Primary Consciousness and Secondary Consciousness, Day- and Night-Consciousness in the six planes of existence
Martinus refers to day-consciousness and night-consciousness as two different states of consciousness. Day-consciousness implies a state where the life-unit/ living being experiences existence in an awake and conscious way, and enables conscious, will-controlled thoughts, reflections, activities and manifestations. Day-consciousness is also termed primary consciousness and refers to the life-unit’s/individual’s primary state of life. Night-consciousness, also termed secondary consciousness, refers to the individual’s secondary state (night-consciousness is also an “awake-state” but at the individual´s secondary state of life). At our current stage of development, we humans belong to the animal kingdom. When we are awake, we are day-conscious in the physical world (our primary state of life) and during sleep we are night-conscious in the paraphysical world (our secondary state of life).
The temporary semiphyscial switching body functions as a transition and transformation zone and organic “link” between the temporary physical body and the immortal paraphysical body structure, the “eternal body”. The switching body is connected to the eternal body as well as to the physical brain structure, and functions as a paraphysical extension of the brain. The brain is primarily connected to the switching body when we are awake (day-consciousness), but during sleep (night-consciousness) the contact between the brain and the switching body is temporarily almost disconnected. Night-consciousness is “located at” the semiphysical level and the paraphysical level. Already, during the first stage, as we asleep the connection between the brain and the switching body is nearly broken, which means that day-consciousness is more or less replaced by a corresponding degree of night-consciousness. At our current stage of development there appears to be a “closed door” between our day-consciousness and night-consciousness. Our night-conscious experiences are also real, but often appear to be less so, or even unreal and dreamlike; we can usually only remember glimpses of them when we are day-conscious.
After death, when contact with the physical body is lost, the switching body maintains an important function for some time, before life and consciousness continue at “higher” paraphysical levels through the paraphysical body. When we sleep, our day-consciousness temporarily transitions into night-consciousness and we move to the paraphysical world, we rest from experiencing the physical world and our physical body rests and regenerates.
The main function of sleep is to relieve the physical organism and give it the opportunity to rest and regenerate. Sleep also strengthens and maintains the semiphysical switching body at such a level that it should be able to take over in a maximal capacity if the individual were to suffer a sudden death (which often happens in the animal kingdom).
Link to Martinus’ text “Through the Gates of Death – Sleep and Death”.
As we evolve towards the next plane of existence, the real human realm, we will gradually develop the ability to experience the paraphysical world in a clearly day-conscious way. Our consciousness will then be carried by our paraphysical body based on the total energy combination in the six basic energy bodies dominated by the contraction/perception/feeling energy at maximum level (diagram detail below).
An Instinct/ plant being (belonging to the instinct or plant kingdom), on the other hand, is at a stage where it is day-conscious in the paraphysical world and night-conscious in the physical world. As it slowly develops its physical body, it senses more and more of the physical world and later reaches a stage where it becomes day-conscious on the physical plane and is then referred to as an animal. The plant kingdom implies a transition of day-consciousness from the paraphysical world to the physical world, an “awaking process” to the physical plane of existence.
Life-units/ individuals belonging to the paraphysical planes of existence have undergone a development that involves their day-consciousness and night-consciousness merging into a higher form of consciousness. This means an expanded form of day-consciousness: cosmic consciousness that almost abolishes night-consciousness which takes on a completely latent nature.
2. The Pole-Structures, the transformation of the poles, one-poled state and double-poled state
According to Martinus and the Cosmic Worldview, we 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 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, i.e. half animal and half human. 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 “one-poled” state, i.e. sex and gender division, occurs mainly in the physical planes of existence, beginning in the plant kingdom and culminating in the animal kingdom, where it subsequently decreases and the development of a ”double-poled” state begins. The double-poled state matures and 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 underlying structures and principles of this development process; the complex transformation process from animal and egoism to real human and altruism, are thoroughly described by Martinus and Per Bruus-Jensen.
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 logical perspectives on the transitional period we are living in, characterized in several different aspects by a “sexualized” society. At the same time, a significant increase in gender awareness and the pursuit of equality are noticeably emerging. These are both characteristics of the sometimes difficult and confusing process we are undergoing on the way to an altruistic society.
3. Reincarnation, the Reincarnation principle, a short introduction
During periods of our eternal evolutionary process, we live alternately in a physical world and in a paraphysical world which presupposes and implies reincarnation. Physical bodies have a limited function and lifespan (limited cell division and cell renewal), and are vulnerable to diseases, accidents, external influences etc., resulting in damage and death. The reincarnation principle functions as a “life renewer” that provides exchange and renewal of physical bodies in the physical world, primarily in the plant and animal kingdoms well as in the beginning of the real human kingdom (i.e. during periods of one-poled state). The reincarnation principle functions in close cooperation with the talent core principle and ensures each life-unit’s individual exchange and renewal of physical bodies. (EV ÄNKAR TILL CCP Reinc prin o Talangk princ)
We will return to the reincarnation process (and the six cosmic evolutionary factors) after an overview of the six planes of existence.
• Cosmic Paths of Evolution
Before going further, we provide a brief introduction to the Cosmic Paths of Evolution:
Within the Cosmic Evolutionary Spiral and the different planes of existence, there is an infinite number of so-called Cosmic Paths of Evolution, and we only know a very small number of these and their life forms. Below is a very brief explanation of Martinus’ symbol no 29 illustrating the “Cosmic Paths of Evolution”.
The Cosmos contains an infinitude of living beings and different paths of evolution, one of which is represented by terrestrial mankind. Other beings corresponding to our level of development (“earth-human stage”) naturally have completely different structures and forms of organisms from ours. Just as the organisms of terrestrial mankind are created and adapted for life on Earth, other human organisms of other planets are adapted to function within the astronomical situation of those planets and their life conditions.
The symbol represents parts of the eternal life of living beings. The red colored area at the bottom of the staircase formation symbolizes parts of the instinct plane of existence, known to us as the plant kingdom. The following orange area illustrates the expansion/action plane of existence – the animal kingdom where we humans still belong. And the yellow area symbolizes the contraction/ perception/ feeling plane of existence – the real human kingdom. The white mist takes over and hides the continuation of the real human kingdom and can be interpreted as a representation of life passing from the physical to the paraphysical state.
The white mist that surrounds the staircase formation also symbolizes the I or X1 of all living beings. The slight hint of violet at the sides of the diagram symbolizes the beings’ creative and experiential ability or X2. The colored sections (red, orange, yellow) symbolize the beings’ organisms or X3 (from the perspective of the created) constituting the above-mentioned realms (plant kingdom/ red, animal kingdom/ orange, real human kingdom/ yellow).
The patterned stripes on the “stairs” symbolize various cosmic paths of evolution. The beings of every single path constitute a particular species with its particular characteristics. Most of the infinite numbers of paths of evolution in the Cosmos do not come into contact with Earth, but with other planets and worlds in eternal and infinite space.
The fifth path of evolution from the right symbolizes the “mammalian path”, to which the terrestrial human being belongs.
The fourth and sixth paths of evolution from the right symbolize the paths of insects and birds respectively.
• Life on the Six Planes of Existence ‒ Overview
In this overview, we will focus primarily on the two physical realms that we know from our human perspective as the plant kingdom (instinct plane) and the animal kingdom (expansion/ action plane), as well as the real human kingdom (contraction/ perception/ feeling plane) that we are heading towards (this is a transitionary plane; initially having physical status and then attaining paraphysical status).
It should be emphasized that there are no clear-cut boundaries between the different planes of existence; the transitions are soft and gradual.
We recommend reading the brief overview outlining the specific characteristics of the qualitative basic energies in connection with the description of the six different planes of existence below (with special focus on the dominant energy on each plane).
BYT BILD KLIPP TILL BÄTTRE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
INSTINCT PLANE — Plant Kingdom
— The Basic Energy Combination on the Instinct Plane —
(detail of diagram, complete diagram below)
Instinct energy (red, impact factor 20) characteristics: automation, autonomy, automatic functions, tropisms, habitual patterns, routines, virtuosity, traditionalism, rituals, ability to believe even fanaticism, dogmatism.
Life forms/ beings with the above illustrated basic energy combination represent the Instinct Plane and are day-conscious at the paraphysical level and night-conscious at the physical level. Their day-conscious lives in the paraphysical world are dominated by their memory/ bliss energy with its strong impact and penetrative power 100, (the intuition energy is waning but due to its strong penetrating power  it still has a significant influence). These beings live in a wonderful paraphysical world of bliss, joy, light, memories and intuition, but also with a growing longing for contrast to this “paradise”. Even in the most wonderful conditions; in time, a feeling of saturation arises along with a need for contrast (without contrast, there is no experience …). This is an effect of the contrast principle and the changing and renewal principle (also termed hunger and satiation principle).
For beings/ life-units in the instinct realm/ plant kingdom this saturation and longing had already begun in the previous bliss and mineral kingdom. After aeons spent on paraphysical planes of existence dominated by love and light in a harmonic double-poled state, they need contrast to be able to experience further. Their strong memory energy reinforces this longing by enabling them to remember their previous existence in the physical world, which occurs through so-called gold-copies*, and physical existence becomes desirable with new development opportunities and challenges.
A renewed return and establishment into the physical world characterized by “heavy” physical matter, one-poled state, egoism, reincarnation etc. provides the necessary contrast to paraphysical existence. Per Bruus-Jensen expresses this evolutionary phase symbolically and concisely as “a required and vital development process from the paraphysical light to the physical darkness”.
* gold-copies: cosmic, chemically processed and refined sections of accumulated experiences and memories (processed and “refined” memory-talent cores) ((LÄNK memotk)) that give rise to a state of bliss and pleasure (to be explained later in the section that deals with the bliss and mineral kingdom).
Martinus poetically declares: As long as a flower exists, the memory of a higher world cannot be erased. And Per Bruus-Jensen continues: The beauty of plants is a physical reflection of the light in the paraphysical world in which they are day-conscious.
In its night-conscious state, the instinct/ plant being is establishing itself on the physical plane. It slowly develops its physical body and over time perceives and senses more and more of the physical world. The goal for the instinct or plant being is to develop its physical body so that it is able to support and retain its consciousness and thereby become day-conscious in the physical world. When it reaches this stage, it is referred to as an animal, i.e. the plant stage in the plant kingdom has transformed into animal stage in the animal kingdom. The increasing expansion/ action energy and contraction/ perception/ feeling energy strongly support this process. Physical matter and activities are primarily based on the interaction between these two basic energies, which enable establishment, manifestation and “awakening”, perception, experience and communication in the physical world.

The instinct plane/ plant kingdom constitutes a transition zone where the beings/ life-units prepare themselves for a future day-conscious life in the physical world and their maximum capacity of instinct energy strongly supports them to automatically react and adapt to the physical world. The instinct energy implies vague, unclear and more or less diffuse experiences which are interpreted by the instinct being’s I/X1 as comfort (favorable) or discomfort (unfavorable).
The instinct beings react to external influences and these reactions occur spontaneously and automatically. The I (X1) of the instinct being is thus able, via its instinct energy, to translate external influences into subjective knowledge and, based on this, develop appropriate automatic functions/ tropisms. For example, plants automatically react to their physical environment; they open and turn to light and close to rain and darkness, their roots extend towards water etc. These and other tropisms are mainly effects of the instinct energy. Automatic functions are based on instinct energy and also here memory energy (with its archiving function) and the talent core principle are of great significance.
In other words, the plants’ night-conscious state in the physical world dominated by instinct energy implies that the plant gradually begins to sense and experience the physical world and successively undergoes an “awakening process” on the physical plane.
During the plant kingdom, various defense methods against the physical environment are developed such as thorns, bristles, toxins, camouflage colors and patterns etc. And the wind prepares the plant being over time so that it can move independently which is very important in the next realm, the animal kingdom, not least in order to escape, fight and attack.
Plants don´t need much physical nutrition to establish themselves and survive on the physical level. Plants which take most of their nutrients from the air via their aerial roots are an example of this.
The need for physical nourishment culminates in the animal kingdom. It should be added that there are also carnivorous individuals on the instinct plane (i.e. they eat life-units/ individuals who are day-conscious on the physical plane, known to us as animals) which is a sign of an approach to the animal kingdom where meat-eating is common for a long period (however, there is an infinite number of versions depending on the different cosmic paths of evolution).

The development of one-poled state, i.e. sex and gender division begins in the plant kingdom (and culminates in the animal kingdom). We can, for example, observe this in plants with stamens and pistils in the same flower, and plants with both male and female flowers (also different kinds of pollination systems etc.) which is necessary for their establishment and survival in the physical world. Plant reproduction implies a physical materialization process, a type of elementary reincarnation. The reincarnation process then develops further and becomes most tangible in the animal kingdom where it culminates for example, in the mammalian stage.
The materialization and establishment of a new organism principle in the physical world begin automatically on the instinct plane of existence (plant kingdom). The autonomous organ-talent cores (AO-T) are a crucial prerequisite for this process and are created on the paraphysical plane of existence (intuition plane) before the coming transition into a new organism principle.
All the new AO-TC are developed and specialized for the new organism structure and its basic and essential functions, features and future development. They contain complete programs that are later activated and function completely automatically in the realization of the new organism principle in physical matter, which occurs entirely without the individual’s day-conscious volition and participation.
