Mobius Ring - the Ring with Only one Side!!
People often ask me what is the most powerful symbol I've
encountered over the years. I usually smile, take a pair of
scissors and a strip of paper, reverse one of its edges, attach it
and create a Mobius Strip
. It is one of my favorite
symbols because it is so simple and yet so powerful. It represents
a key to the endless cosmic process of cause and effect. It
represents karma - the implications of everything you do in the
world and vice versa. It's also a symbol of unity
acts as a constant reminder to look at everything outside the delusional
of good and bad, us and them, and the "I"
How to make your own Mobius Strip?
You can conduct this little experiment
To make a Mobius strip, take a paper page and cut it into a strip
(24cm height, 4cm width for the sake of convenience). Now give one
of the two ends half a twist and then reattach the two ends. This
way you will create a Mobius strip. The Mobius ring has only one
side. To see it clearly, take a pen and draw a line on the paper
ring so that the end of the line reaches the beginning of that
same line. You will end up drawing the line on the whole surface
of the ring.
There is no difference between the inside and the outside of the
Mobius ring. This is a representation of the mysterious one, the
creative force that exists in everything and is everything. Humans
perceive reality in a dualistic manner of good and evil. The
dualistic perception of reality does not recognize the one force
behind existence. The Mobius ring is a beautiful reflection of
this simplistic, yet hidden truth.
The next steps:
Cutting the Mobius Strip into Two!
Take scissors and cut the Mobius strip in the middle - instead of
two rings, you will end up with one larger Mobius ring! This shows
the elusive nature of duality. You see everything as separate from
you but we are part of the whole.
Cutting the Mobius strip into Three!
Now, cut the strip about 1/3 from the width. You will end up with
two rings, a big one, and a small one, one inside the other. It is
a representation of the Macro the Micro and the connection between
it. That is how even a grain of sand contains the entire pattern
and blueprint of the cosmos and how each of us is the universe
Applications of Mobius Strip
The Mobius strip has many usages in real life. Here are some
Mobius strips have been used as conveyor belts
them last longer (same amount of wear for both sides). Mobius
strips are common in the manufacturing of a fabric computer
and typewriter ribbons. A Mobius resistor
an electronic circuit element that cancels its own inductive
reactance. In music theory, the space of all two-note chords,
known as dyads, takes the shape of a Mobius strip.
Mobius strip and the Hebrew names of God
The Jewish tradition prohibits the pronunciation of the name of
God. However, the names of the Creator (as they appear in the
Hebrew old testament) are not names at all but only symbols which
lead to truths. The first Hebrew name for God is "EL" which means
"into" - a definition of direction without a particular goal
(since the creator is everything and everywhere).
The numerological value of the first letter in the word "EL
" is 1 and the second letter
has the numerological value of 3 which means the one who is three
or the holy trinity
you cut the Mobius strip into 1/3 you get the bigger ring - the
macro and the Creator and the smaller ring - the creatures, the
Taking the Hebrew word ELOHIM
apart you get three words: "EL
(God in a male aspect), "ELA
(God in a female aspect) and "ELIM
meaning gods. Once again we have the holy trinity - male, female
Even the Hebrew name "Yehova
contains the words "haya
(was in Hebrew), "hove
(is now) and "yeeheeye
(will be) giving us the cycle of time...
realize who we truly are, the cosmic joke will reveal it self!
