A.   THE ENNEAGRAM OF PERSONALITY TYPES

 

1  Commentaries of the Enneagram of the Personality Types or Personality Fixate Enneagram:

 

1. In this type of Enneagram of Human Personalities (Oscar Ichazo & Claudio Naranjo) the triangle 3, 6 and 9 are not input points, and therefore, it cannot represent a living enneagram or what is known as an open system that is independent.  However, personalities are inner crystallizations too and on the personality part of the human body which together occupies a major part of the Fourth Body of man.  Much of this is the final product (personalities) of the digestion of impression foods mostly from the cosmic and astrological or earthly environmental natures, with the air and also the ordinary foods input as minor factors.

 

2. In this methodology, obvious and major personality types that is found in the personality component of a modern man ‘soaked’ in modern civilization, namely, 1) The Perfectionist, 2) The Giver, 3) The Performer, 4) The Romantic, 5) The Observer, 6) The Questioner 7) The Epicure, 8) The Boss and 9) The Mediator, are identified and well matched into the Enneagram Symbol in sincere hope that an oxymoron marriage did not happen to be.

 

3. Also because human personality fixations is part of the one Enneagram that has already been developed by Gurdjieff and Ouspensky, as observed and pointed out that there is one Man-enneagram for one person in the real world, so human personalities are the crystallizations of the man-enneagram.

 

4. As they are ‘components’ of the bigger picture, the best way to represent them is to place them on the octave points without the Holy Spirit, which is not in this octave points but producing and maintaining the personality types.

 

5. It will no longer be difficult to discover more and more personality crystallizations as times goes by because the triangle 3, 6 and 9 is inputting changing foods to create, nourish and maintain the ‘Nine Personality Crystallizations’.

 

6. The Nine Personality Types is an expression of nine groups of psyche hydrogens as these groups function in certain fixed patterns that distinguish them from one another.  This may be best fixated into a periodicity of personality types.

7. Buffers are present to separate the personalities from one another and separate them as different groups of personality ‘I’s with different and separte identity.

 

8. The Enneagram Symbol used in this manner is the fixating usage without indicating the three inputs.  This way of using the Enneagram is necessary when investigating partial systems that have inputs from the main systems.

 

9. The complete human body with all the psychic centers intact, living and functioning belongs to essence, and the structure of four (4 Bodies), the law of seven and the law of three operate in wholesome.

 

10. In this type of Enneagram without the Real Holy Trinity, both the two octaves of relation – inner octave (1, 4, 2, 8, 5 & 7) and the outer octave (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 & 9) do influence and change quantitatively (without much qualitative changes) each other depending on the position correctly identified in the enneagram.

 

11. As the phenomenon in investigation is not the complete living picture of the wholesome man, but rather on the sub system of human personalities the non-enneagrammic realities, or “disobediences” characteristics must the recognized.

Just as the Octaves of Elements in Chemistry, where the elements are gradually discovered and fixed to the predetermined periodic table, so here the exclusive psychological hydrogens of human personalities will need to be investigated in similar manner.  Nay more, here we are investigating miss quickly unlike the stable elements which are mostly solid.

 

12. As mentioned before, more and more personalities might be discovered either from the essence function or the 3 foods intake and defective function of center or from random combination of various personalities, so a subtype system might have to be introduced in this interpretation to explain “disobediences”.  The subtype system is necessary to home the spin-offs and uninvestigated human personality fragments that are derived mostly from the main personality types.

 

13. The enneagram of the Human Personality Types is always explained in relation to a “higher” or outside reference:

a) Head, heart and belly which represent the original four bodies of man in the famous Gurdjieff Hackney Carriage.

b) Holy Virtue and Idea which represents the upper “human personalities” relation in the driver body (head) or any link to the higher.

c) Passion and Fixation which represents the “human personalities” relation in the horse and carriage bodies (head and belly) or any link to the lower.

d) Unaware and Aware individuals who represent automatic and mechanical happening and of the personality and conscious issuing of the same.

e) Stress and security which represents subjecting the personality fixates to pressure (stress) and removing the pressure (security) to identify changes and responses.

f) Ways to move into higher levels especially on how to get out of the types and develop greater inner balance.

 

C.   ENNEAGRAM OF LIFE, COSMOSES AND OTHERS

 

1   It is important to objectivize the enneagram symbol through examples, making it concrete as it has been staying in our abstract faculty for too long.  Gurdjieff has objectivized it on the Ray of Creation outside together with a Ray of Creation inside.  Ouspensky developed the enneagram example for a human being.  So he has objectivized it on our activities in ordinary life.  Some objectivize them for society, others for personality types.  Real World Views have objectivized it on society.

Without finding real examples where octaves trinities and enneagrams have to marry objects and subjects for their concrete forms; the symbols always have to remain as pure symbols with little practical values. It is like theoretical mechanisms without engineering and inventions, and without practice.  It is pure theory.

 

2   Hydrogens become the ‘I’s.  The hydrogens of mercy and conscience or the ‘Real I’ of Kuanyin produced in the alchemical process during one’s life, re-enters into the general psychological pool for the maintenance and preservation of the system.  While such hydrogens are normally produced by beings with the physical shape of man, their presence can be found also in beings of other physical shapes.

The laws of genetics govern physical “reincarnations” while psychological reincarnation occurs both during one’s life (obvious) and then during death (not obvious) which is subject to cosmic laws.  The smaller enneagram applies for man and the bigger enneagram applies for the cosmos.  The teaching of Kuanyin on mercy and human conscience is the similar to the teaching of Ashiata Shiemash of Gurdjieff.

 

3   The Process Of Body Dying And Species Dying:

In the final stages of dehydration the body shrinks, robbing youth from the young as the skin puckers, eyes recede into orbits, and the tongue swells and cracks. Brain cells shrivel and muscles seize. The kidneys shut down, blood volume drops, triggering hypovolemic shock, with its attendant respiratory and cardiac failures. These combined assaults disrupt the chemical and electrical pathways of the body until all systems cascade toward death.

Such is also the path of a dying species. Beyond a critical point, the collective body of a unique kind of mammal or bird or amphibian or tree cannot be salvaged, no matter the first aid rendered.  Too few individuals spread too far apart, or too genetically weakened, are susceptible to even small natural disasters: a passing thunderstorm; an unexpected freeze; drought.  At fewer than 50 members, populations experience increasingly random fluctuations until a kind of fatal arrhythmia takes hold.  Eventually, an entire genetic legacy, born in the beginnings of life on earth, is removed from the future.

The phenomenon of ‘Near Death Experience’ (NDE) in an individual is best described by E. F. Kelly et al as follows:

Frequently recurring features include feelings of peace and joy; a sense of being out of one’s body and watching events going on around one’s body and, occasionally, at some distant physical location; a cessation of pain; seeing a dark tunnel or void; seeing an unusually bright light, sometimes experienced as a “Being of Light” that radiates love and may speak or otherwise communicate with the person; encountering other beings, often deceased persons whom the experiencer recognizes; experiencing a revival of memories or even a full life review, sometimes accompanied by feelings of judgment; seeing some “other realm,” often of great beauty; sensing a barrier or border beyond which the person cannot go; and returning to the body, often reluctantly.

(E.F. Kelly et al., Irreducible Mind: Toward a Psychology for the 21st Century. New York: Rowman and Littlefield, 2007, p. 372)

For the Oriental World this Bardo period is certainly fully explored long ago.  The last hour "souls" depending on where it has stationed during their living life may proceed to the Gods - the Lord, the Allah, the Buddha, the Absolute, the Nirvana, the Kingdom of Heaven, the Brahman, the etcetera upwards or down the scale to the many levels of Hell and finally get posited anywhere in the great  psychic scale.  One either goes or comes back at the end of this experience!  Those who go did not come back to tell; those who come back did not go and have not finish the ultimate death line.
