The Seven Liberal Arts and Sciences are usually divided into two main categories, where the trivium includes grammar, rhetoric and logic, and the quadrivium includes arithmetic, geometry, music and astronomy. This division, however, is not helpful. In the Kabbalistic book Sepher Yetzirah (Book of Creation) it is explained how there are three sacred scrolls with which Jah (God) created Cosmos. These scrolls are numbers, letters and pronunciation (Wescott, 1887; KALISCH, 1877). The 7 arts are presented in Table 9 and followed by an overview. The Seven Liberal Arts and Sciences influence the different parts of a person’s brain.

Table 9. The seven liberal arts and sciences in divided correctly

Numbers

There are two types of numbers: i) the eternal and infinite ones (e.g. 0, ∞, π, φ, √2 etc.) and then ii) all the numbers that are created with number 1. Learn to think as if there was no number two, but only number 1 that is measured twice. Thus, number 2 is only a name of that relation where number one is measured twice against itself. All numbers are relations.

Letters

What are words? And what are letters? The most important purpose of the letters is that they give us the ability to write. Writing is like creating memories outside a person’s mind. Learning to know language and the alphabet implies knowing all the letters, their names, possibly their numerical values, etc. We might think that for instance numerical values do not appear in the English language, but that is not true. The letter B is actually the Feather of Ma’AT, only in a modern outfit, without the line continuing downwards. The words are formed of letters, thus they are mathematical permutations.

It is also interesting to look for universal letters/words. These are the words that are loaded with power and influence in several cultures and languages. For instance, think of H.R. – the Egyptian God HoRu(s). In Egyptian language it also refers to ‘a mountain’ and ‘a way’ etc. In the English language it refers to ‘hero’, ‘hair’, ‘heir’, ‘hare’, ‘hear’, ‘her’, and even ‘whore’ (see e.g. Book of Revelation 17:5). In the Finnish language it refers to ‘HeRRa’ (‘Mister’ or ‘Lord’). Also hari, which means ‘hare’ in Sanskrit, and ‘goddess Hera’ of Mount Olympus etc. These kinds of words are the golden keys in the language of symbolism.

Speech

There are two types of letters: i) consonants, which are eternal and permanent and thus exactly as they are, and ii) vowels, which give life to the consonants. Try to pronounce a consonant without any vowels! It is extremely hard. Pronunciation is the mother of communication, if the father of communication is the gesture. Practice pronunciation by choosing the consonants at your will and then start creating all kinds of possible words. Try e.g. ‘F’ and ‘T’. First, there will be fat, foot, feet, fat-her, feature, feather, feet-her, soon water (all of the Ancient languages unite letters PH, F and V in pronunciation).

Also the art of rhetoric is a part of speech. Rhetoric is a science of speech i.e. the oral communication. A master in rhetoric can express himself/herself in every situation, telling truthfully of his/her thoughts and emotions. Trained rhetorical skills allow a person to use hypnotic language to help others relax into deep meditative state. Also, the narrative applications of modern psychology are rooted in rhetorical techniques. In fact, there is a great deal of more in common between Scripture and narrative psychology than meets the eye.

Conclusion of trivium

As soon as a person masters the three scrolls of trivium, he/she realizes that these three are inseparables. There is no letter without its numerical value, nor a sound with which it is pronounced. There is no pronunciation without letters. There is no second letter without the first one, and thus there are no letters without numbers. When a person learns or communicates, the whole trivium is used. The better a person understands the mutual structure of these scrolls, the more effective is his/her output. The whole trivium – numbers, writing, speech – is described with the term ‘Word’ in Scripture (see e.g. John 1:1-3; RIG.1.164.45 of Vedas). All the sacred texts are made of Word and thus can be understood only by those who have the knowledge of them.

Definition (‘Word’, see e.g. John 1:1)

A concept, where inseparably are united 1) numbers, 2) letters and 3) pronouncing, is called ‘Word’. ‘Word’ has also a fourth dimension, called ‘Amen’, or ‘hidden’. Term ‘hidden’ refers to an understanding of the language of symbolism. (See also an example of ‘Word’ in Appendix 9)

Logic

Logic is the uniting factor of these seven arts. Logic is very close to Knowledge itself, because it describes the Law. Understand logic as the Seven Principles of Nature (see Appendix 1) and learn how to use the mathematical Set Theory as a part of your logical thinking (see Appendix 11). Without an understanding of the spiritual structure behind Cosmos, Nature usually seems to be in chaos. When the spiritual aspect enters the human mind, logic is the most important concept to learn. Otherwise creativity and imagination will have the upper hand, and the truth will be lost at sea.

Geometry

The basics of the 2-dimensional geometry are the dot, the moving dot (line), the plane and all the different possibilities on the plane. When thinking of the plane, pay attention to circle and square: why are they different? There are two worlds collapsing, the eternal and permanent one, and the continuously moving one. These two worlds cannot ever meet each other, but when they unite, we come across something extraordinary (such as π). In the human brain, geometry plays a remarkable part, because all of our memories are created again and again in our thoughts. Geometry helps us to use visual creativity and therefore it helps us to remember and create things in our mind. There is no shape in Cosmos without Geometry.

Music

Music is the art of sounds. Try to understand the aspect of infinity in music, then the role of 7 (musical eye of Horus). Do not think of music only as a group of sounds, but rather as vibration, rhythm and mathematics. Learn to make animal voices and the voices of instruments, do they have common factors? Learn to use your throat and the throat chakra.

Astronomy

Understand the common root of astronomy and astrology. Astrology is mental astronomy and astronomy is physical astrology. Find the difference between personal and collective astrology. Do not believe in extremes or manipulating people who are under the False Prophet, but rather learn to know thyself. Then, with the Way of Truth, try to learn the collective astrology. In physical astronomy, focus on the difference between the eternal and infinity and time and space. Explore the Black Holes and the Life cycle of stars. Locate the knowledge and the life, and through them, Cosmos will be in front of your eyes.
