Zōḗ Meets Biola

So, what you are saying is that this Dragon is kind of like Luke Skywalker’s… The Force.

Close, but not quite. It isn’t just The Force. It is The Life Force.

Oh, I see. More like Mr. Aristotle’s ψυχή (psukhḗ, “soul”) thing, then.

Yes. But don’t forget our discussion about that.

That’s right. I remember. The translation into English as “Soul” can be misleading because we tend to reify the concept, we hypostatize and treat Soul as some kind of a Substance, as The Soul, a Soul, but it is really a kind of Universal Action that is everywhere and every when.

Correct! You are such a Good Student! The Dragon, then, is the active Principle of Life that is at work throughout the Universe. It is a Modus Operandi… a Thaumaturgickal Operation.

How not Occidental of you my Friend!

How Greekly Oriental, is what I would say!

So, how do we get from the ψυχή (psukhḗ, “soul” understood as Action, not Substance) thing to the ζωή (zōḗ, “life”) thing?

Kryptozoesis. That’s how. Do you remember our talk about the word Kryptozoesis?

Yeah, it was invented by some crazy Dragonologist as a substitute word for… cryptozoology.

Yup. And what is cryptozoology?

Cryptozoology is “the search for and study of animals whose existence or survival is disputed or unsubstantiated, such as the Loch Ness monster and the yeti,” is what Google says. But the real definition of it is this… Cryptozoology is the Scientific study of the Coded Creatures of the Imagination.

Not just ANY Imagination. Right?

Right. It is the World Imagination.

The Imagination of the Dragon, really, if you think about it. But the Action of the Dragon’s Imagination is Kryptic, meaning, it is coded. The code is embedded deeply into the Book of Secrets written into the natural Order of things and is revealed to us in various ways, but, most notably, via the Operation of the DNA molecule, a rather clever Dragon Contraption, if you ask me.

Indeed. It opens up a whole new perspective on Life, the Universe, and Everything.

Which is 23.

Not 42.


But what about the whole Zōḗ Meets Biola thing, then?

Well, as you have learned, from various Mysteries, ζωή (zōḗ, “life”) is Indestructible Life and βίος (bíos) is Incarnated Life.
That’s why Zōḗ is revealed to us by the Kryptozoetikon, which is a mathematical construction.
Therefore, Zōḗ is Eternal. It is… Mathesis.
Whereas, Biola (so-called here, tongue-in-cheek, to Rhyme it with Viola) is revealed to us by the Gyronoetikon, which is a construction of… Physics.
It is… Physical Logic.

Wow! I’m getting dizzy now!

Well, let’s just let it settle in. That is the way the Dragon likes to Operate anyway.
