Product Description
Explanation of the Food Diagram earrings

According to G. I. Gurdjieff and the Fourth Way, the human organism can assimilate 3 foods: edible ordinary food, air, and sense impressions. They are then transformed by the organism into finer substances. (See P. D. Ouspenky's "In Search of the Miraculous" for a description of the food diagram.) This structure was further clarified by Russell A. Smith in his book, "Gurdjieff: Cosmic Secrets", pgs.75, 85. This model is a 3D depiction of that diagram, showing the possible ascending octaves of food (lowest spiral), air (middle spiral), and impressions (top spiral). Each 'note', or deflection point in the octave, is marked with a sphere.  Higher notes are those of higher frequency, and notes of equal frequency are the same distance above the base.  The 'descending' Do of one octave starts at the note La or Fa of another octave. La and Fa notes on adjacent octaves intersect. Note that the 'ascending Do' of the air octave (cyan) is at the same frequency as the note Mi of the food octave ((yellow), and that the 'ascending Do' of the impressions octave (magenta) starts at the same frequency as the note So of the food octave. This is in general true of the 'shock octaves' needed for ascending octaves (see p. 75 of Cosmic Secrets). Findings not included.
