According to Uspensky, the problem of truth corresponds to the difficulty of communicating it, and even before accessing it. There are groups that man can access, but only in particular moments of life, with the help of internal or external forces. The truth is therefore in everyone (and in everything) at different levels of concentration, through the concentric shells of the various planets.
Uspensky does nothing but report the oral thought of his Russian master Gurdijeff.
The connections of the Russian vagabond are with Kabbalah, Astrology and Pythagoreanism, just to mention something. Everything is connected: the celestial Adam Kadmon corresponds to the (demonstrable by all) rhythms of our Adam (our body): relationships between the various parts of the body according to the alchemical and Pythagorean secret, or even tarological, for those who are passionate, from the tarot of the devil who says the secret: “coagulate and dissolve”, so let’s never get confused between spirit and soul.
They are different things, but they are things that must be experienced, to say them in two words as I am doing is difficult if not impossible, Uspenskij also remembers it: returning to the beginning the biggest problem is in communicating a truth, communicating it in a short time is equivalent to not communicate it.
A separate episode for Carmelo Bene fans, don’t think that he too didn’t know and had to do with tarot cards and hermeticism.
Ultimately if you want to know more, read the book that I put above in the “link” item and before or even after you like Uspenskij’s book: https://amzn.to/2SiOand
Paracelsus, the oldest Hermes Trismegistus, our Greek father (Book: https://amzn.to/37fBhys), or even Jorge Luis Borges himself could be mentioned. Everyone gets there by their own ways. In fact, this is how Paracelsus opened his work:
“I, Filippo Teofrasto Paracelsus Bombasto, say that to get to the Tincture of the Philosophers, thanks to the will of God, there are several ways. Ermete Trismegisto the Egyptian performed the work according to his method. The Greek Orus used the same process. The Arab Hali used another method and succeeded. The German Albert the Great used a complicated procedure. Through different ways they have reached the same goal, ensuring riches and a long life in this valley of tears. I, Teofrasto Paracelsus Bombasto, king of the Arcana, have received certain gifts from God, thanks to which all those who want to reach the work of the Philosophers must imitate me and must follow me, whether they are Italian, Polish, French or German. ” (from the book: https://amzn.to/38dQRMd)
