A “form” is an idea formed in consciousness and that may or not become reflected in the material world.
In “the beginning,” the forms that the original “I” was able to conceive were simple. Of course, at this stage of creation (i.e., the stage we are standing at now) form has become more than mere platonic solids. As noted in volume one, increasingly complex forms (i.e., ideas in consciousness) was made possible with the addition of perspectives.
Since everything arises first in consciousness, forms exist in the Fabric of Consciousness as potentials waiting to be intended into realty. The idea of a square starts of life as a form in the consciousness of Spirit and so does the idea of the Garden of Eden. A form may become manifested in “the dream” if there is enough will and intent to see it expressed. More complicated forms take longer to longer, and often require multiple perspectives (i.e., monads) to manifest.
Forms are subject to individual interpretation. What is one monad’s Garden of Eden may not be so for another. Nevertheless, the idea of The Garden, it a prototypical form used by Spirit to control the manifestation of creation.
Forms are universal only to the extent that a form is remembered. When Spirit no longer remembers a form, it is said to have disappeared. Nevertheless, even if forgotten, the form remains a potential that may be invoked in consciousness and therefore it is always possible to re-discover a lost form.
Perhaps it goes without saying here but forms have no independent existence outside of consciousness. A form (like “democracy” for example) exists only because it has a place in consciousness. Eliminate the form in consciousness and its reality inevitably evaporates.
Forms can be quite complicated and powerful ways to manifest. Carl G. Jung, the famous psychologist, identified a number of rather powerful forms used to organize human life on this earth. Jung called these forms archetypes and concluded, correctly, that these archetypes influenced our waking experience and the reality that we manifest.
As has been demonstrated over and over again this century, forms/archetypes can be manipulated, invoked, and twisted beyond the point where they are recognizable as the type of creative idea worthy of a blissful, all-loving Spirit. The idea of The Garden for example has been corrupted by Catholic theology which teaches that we are all ejected from The Garden. This peculiar twist helps create the world we see around us which is, by anybody’s estimation, nowhere near a utopian garden.
