The Manifestation of Kali in Universe
as an Astrophysical Anomaly
By Persona Navitae 353.
There is no light, nor any motion.
There is no mass, nor any sound.
Still, in the lampless heart of the ocean,
Fasten me down and hold me drowned
Within thy womb, within thy thought,
Where there is naught-where there is naught!
From “Kali”, by Aleister Crowley
In the beginning was the KAOS water, the pure creative force of
undivided being. Crowley called this “Nuit”, which seems to be
the combination of the sky goddess “Nut” with the chaos God “Nu”,
or “Nun”. This was the potential for mani-festation before the
dream of Siva, before the suffering of Sophia that coalesced into
the mist of dark reality. This primal force exits in a perpetual
state of non-being, always edging toward being.
A binary movement sets up from this tension of pre-creation, from
a state of collapsed oneness, to a state of open potential. This is
the struggle between Siva; the force of perfect order, and Sakti;
the force of pure chaos.
In Siva is the need to collapse to stable systems, the continual
drive for one-ness that uni-fests as the point monad of Kether on
the Tree of Life.
In Sakti is the need for continual creation, the pure fertile
need to populate the Universe with the divine sparks of mani-fested
From these two forces arises the numinous Androgyne. This force
exists at the beginning of physical creation, from its parthenogenic
fullness it emanates across the Pleroma of the void, and down the
Tree to Malkuth.
This mythos is at the core of the unconscious and of many
creation theories. From the bliss of Androgyny comes the suffering
of Maya, illusion. This is the illusion of multi-verse. Sophia, the
divine mother of the Gnostics, was concieved of as Androgynous but
she broke away from her partner and concieved the physical universe
as a polarised order. The result was the creation of ignorance,
the demiurge Yahweh.
From the primal Nuit is created Babalon, and from her is Isis,
but what of Nepthys? She is hidden; present but unseen. Felt but
rarely named. In Indian theosophy divine Sakti exists as the primal
energy behind the static monad, Siva. She is Nuit in Thelema, and
her creation on the mundane level is Kali. In many systems they are
considered one, which is rightly so.
The job of Kali is to devour the ignorance of static non-creation
and re-create Universe with new potential for mani-festation. Left
to its own, Siva would freeze up the Universe in a cage of entropy.
This is known to physicists as the “Heat death of Universe”. Heat is
not a substance, not an energy. It is a process, “The transference
of energy by virtue of a difference in temperature”.
When all forms of energy, Sakti/Kali, have been equalibriated
then no more growth is possible. Any divine sparks left in such a
state would no longer develop, all life would stop.
The Heat Death is only one scenario. It would seem possible
that the Universe could go on perpetually if there were some way to
re-create it. All matter/energy would have to be sucked back in
and thrust out in another “Big bang”. This “devouring” is well
known to devotees of Kali.
In early myths she is known to devour the demons who would upset
the balance of space-time. Kali is the Goddess of time, Kala. In
time all things die and are re-born. In time all ignorance is
replaced by divine Gnosis, if we accomplish nothing else in life we
cannot help but learn. Experience is the great teacher. At the end
of time there is no manifested existence, just the Satchidananda of
Kali offers the bliss of Gnosis with one hand which holds the
Sangrail, freedom from fear with another raised, with a third she
holds the sword that destroys Universe, and with a forth she holds a
head to remind us that all situations will change, death is the
constant force of new life. She is naked because she has no veils
of illusion, and to remind us that the secret of re-creation is in
sexual bliss. She is black because she is beyond human
comprehension, this also ties in with the freudian devouring mother,
who is in the realm of shadow, we all will be swallowed by Kali in
the little death and the greater ones. She dances on the corpse of
Siva, who has over extended himself in the attempt for divine Order.
However, her dance has aroused him even in death and she stands over
his erect penis to accept the seed of new creation.
In the early 1930’s Edwin Hubble concluded that Universe is
expanding, and even in the 1920’s evidence existed of such
expansion. It has been postulated that if there is not enough mass
in Universe then it will eventually suffer the heat death of Siva.
If there is enough however, then it is possible that the expansion
will slow down due to the drag of continual gravational forces that
all matter posseses, and eventually return to a single point where
the explosive forces of the dynamic interplay of matter/energy will
cause a new expansion.
One method to determine if Universe has enough matter to halt the
expansion is to add up all the luminous matter. Matter exits in
particular, stable energy states.
If extra energy is added to a system, then the matter present
would tend to jump to a higher energy state. Every element has very
particular states it prefers and will not reside in any others. This
is the rule of the Siva-Order force in Universe. All chaotic energy
states will either jump to a higher state, and stay there as long as
the extra energy does, or it will ignore the extra force.
When there isn’t enough energy to maintain the element in this
state, it drops to a specific lower state and sheds the excess
energy. When this happens we see it as a burst of light which will
be specific to each particular element. By examining the luminous
evidence, astrophysicists can determine how much matter is shedding
According to older theories all matter radiates light, and this
could be used to determine how much matter was in Universe. Through
these studies, it was found that there is only about 2% of the
necessary amount for re- creation.
In 1933, Fritz Zwicky discovered that galaxies were moving much
faster than they should according to the accepted theories.
Speculating from the amount of matter found through the luminosity
present, he found that galaxies should be breaking up. The obvious
conclusion is that there is more matter present than can be seen.
This substance became known as Dark Matter. Since then numerous
experiments have been devised to test this theory. Vera Rubin
showed that galaxies rotate as fast at the outer rim, or faster, as
they do in the inner.
If they are less dense at the outer edges, as the luminosity
indicates, then they should move slower. Jeremiah Ostriker and James
Peebles showed that without extra matter, galaxies would develop
gravitational anomalies that would cause them to collapse into other
forms than the spiral we usually see. It seems likely that there is
Dark Matter in the Universe, and estimates now indicate that it
could make up as much as 95% of all physical creation.
What is this Dark Matter? Nobody knows, but there are many
theories. Sub-atomic particles, so small they don’t radiate visible
energy, Neutrinos, Magnetic Monopoles (one sided magnets), and
Gravitinos (bundles of gravity, in the same sense that Photons are
bundles of light) are prime candidates. So far neither Magnetic
Monopoles, nor Gravitinos have been found.
(the book, “Dweller on Two Planets” and the “Dividing of the Way”
also mentions a dark spectrum as in the statement ‘Night is as
pregnant as day, just as there are 7 colors radiating to form
white light, so are there 7 colors TO FORM THE DARK.’
The term applied to this type of energy is NAVAZ – the NIGHTSIDE
OF NATURE. Cayce also mentions this mysterious force in several
of his readings.
The indications are that anti-gravity, free energy,
materialization, etc..all are controllable through the use of
the NIGHTSIDE FORCES…….Vangard)
Arcane knowldge povides some answers assuming we ask the
questions. If Isis is “Infinite Stars, Infinite Space”, then what
is Nepthys? Being the opposite side of Isis we have to assume she
plays a part in the Universe. And, if Kali’s re-creation of the
Universe is possible, then can we see it in the process?
The answer to both of these lies in the Dark Matter. In “Mumbo
Jumbo” Ishmael Reed referred to “Dark Isis”. I found this very
intriquing at the time, and later found the connection in Isis’s
dark twin, Nepthys. She is dark (like Kali) because she is
hidden, manifested but unseen.
In his book, Reed speculated that she became dominant when Isis
was shedding lunar blood (sacred to Kali), this is when the
unfertile seeds are being disgarded. For the aspirant this is a
time of great power, and danger. Nepthys is the goddess of the
night magicks, the red magick of Vamamarg somtimes refered to as the
“left hand path”. Hers is the force of re-creation which is so
vital to the growth of the aspirant. IAO, Isis-creator, Apophis
(Set, husband of Nepthys)-destroyer, and Osiris-re-creator.
In Tantra, Kali is all three. She gives birth to Universe,
devours it when all life has expended its energy, and re-creates it
from the seeds of the old Universe.
It’s uncertain whether there is enough Dark Matter to cause the
collapse of Universe, but clearly if there is a chance, it is in
this manifestation of the Dark Goddess. Her body is the body of
matter that lies “between” known spaces and stars, her power is felt
in the pull of matter itself, “Love is the law, love under will” is
the axion of gravity where all particles seek to unite with all
others. Her books are written in the night sky, her rites are the
rites of ancient humans awed by the power of the Great Sleep, and
equally awed by it’s power of re-creation.
If Kali/Nepthys manifests at the end of time, it will be as the
mouths of numerous black holes, each larger one devouring the
smaller, uniting in one undifferientiated monad of space-time, not
only matter sucked in but the net of creation on which it resides as
well. In the Dark Matter is the new creation.
