On G. I. Gurdjieff's Beelzebub's Tales to His Grandson
 

Section III

2.  The Autocratic and Trogoautoegocratic Systems

According to Beelzebub, in the beginning, before the creation of the Universe, or the Megalacosmos, the Most Most Holy Sun Absolute existed alone in empty space, and the UNI-BEING-CREATOR existed alone on the Most Holy Sun Absolute.  Otherwise, only the prime source substance of Etherokrilno was present throughout the empty space.

However, this UNI-BEING-CREATOR then ascertained that the Sun Absolute was gradually diminishing in volume, and that this was due to the Heropass–or the flow of Time.  Our ENDLESSNESS in HIS DIVINE deliberations, realized that sooner or latter this flow of Time could “ultimately bring about the complete destruction of this sole place of HIS Being.”  (p. 749) These factors led to the need to create the existing Megalocosmos, or World–in order to prevent the further diminishing of the Most Holy Sun Absolute.

The CREATOR-OMNIPOTENT, upon ascertaining the diminishing of the Sun Absolute, undertook to review the laws which maintained this cosmic concentration: the primordial sacred laws of Triamazikamno and Heptparaparshinokh.  Before the beginning of relative time and the creation of the Universe, these sacred laws operated on a different principle than they do within the created Universe–the Megalocosmos.  Beelzebub elaborates upon how and why creation was brought about by explaining how the functioning of the sacred laws of these sacred laws was changed.  This occurred before the creation process unfolded, and the world came to be governed by the modified versions of these principles.  Whereas the original system was based on the “Autoegocratic” principle, the change in the functioning of these laws created a system based on the “Trogoautoegocratic” principle.
Beelzebub enlightens Hassein as to the nature of the Autoegocratic principle which existed within the Most Holy Sun Absolute.
“... the Most Most Holy Sun Absolute was maintained and existed on the basis of the system called ‘Autoegocrat,’ i.e., on that principle according to which the inner forces which maintained the existence of this cosmic concentration had an independent functioning, not depending on any forces proceeding from outside, and which were based also on those two fundamental cosmic sacred laws by which at the present time also, the whole of our present Megalocosmos is maintained ... .”  (p. 750)
In the Most Holy Sun Absolute, the sacred cosmic laws function independently, not relying on “any forces whatsoever coming from outside ....” (p. 752)  The preface “auto,” of autoegocrat, implies inherent and self-contained, individual and not dependent upon external forces.  When the fundamental sacred laws were changed, their functioning was made to be dependent on forces coming from outside–hence, not self-sustaining.  The Trogoautoegocratic system rules within the whole of the created Universe–the “Megalocosmos with all the cosmoses of different scales and relatively independent cosmic formations present in it ... .”  (p. 752) Thus no cosmos or life form is self-sufficient but exchanges substances and forces with other cosmoses  and the surroundings outside of themselves.  Beelzebub explains that in the Trogoautoegocratic system, “everything eats, and everything is eaten”–in the grand cosmic exchanges of substances:
“... everything in the Universe ... exists and in maintained exclusively on the basis of what is called the ‘common-cosmic Trogoautoegocratic process.’ ... This system, which maintains everything arisen and existing, was actualized by our ENDLESS CREATOR in order that what is called the ‘exchange of substances’ or the ‘Reciprocal-feeding’ of everything that exists, might proceed in the Universe.” (pp. 136-137)
Thus, human “men-beings” feed on material food and water, the air and atmospheres, the influences of the planets and moon, radiations of the Sun, and even the emanations of the Sun Absolute.   A slug is sustained by three being-foods and forces from outside of themselves.  In turn, a man-being will feed the earth with his planetary body upon his death, the moon with Askokin vibrations, and  the planets and Sun with other elements or substances within his nature.   Men-being eat and are eaten, in the grand exchange of cosmic elements–all under the Trogoautoegocratic system.
The changing of the functioning of the two fundamental cosmic laws–especially the changing of the law of Sevenfoldness, are particularly important to understand as esoteric principles of objective science, and as the foundation for Beelzebub’s science of the soul.

Beelzebub explains to Hassein the basic changes in the law of seven which were introduced as the autoegocratic principle was turned into the trogoautoegocratic principle:
“These changes in the functioning of the sacred Heptaparaparshinokh consisted in this, that in three of its Stopinders HE altered the what are called ‘subjective actions’ which had been until then in the Stopinders, in this respect, that in one HE lengthened the law-conformable successiveness; shortening it in another; and in a third, disharmonized it.  (p. 753)
Beelzebub explains three changes in the functioning of the Law of Sevenfoldness–having to do with altering the intervals (or Stopinders) between the seven different ‘centers of gravity.’ Beelzebub also provides a few terms and phrases descriptive of these altered Mdnel-Ins.

The interval lengthened is that between the third and fourth “deflections,” or ‘centers of gravity,’ which would correspond to the mi-fa interval in the octave.   The lengthening of this Stopinder enables the “automatic affluence of all forces which are near” to fill this interval.  This is labeled as the ‘mechano-coinciding-Mdnel-In’ as its passage occurs automatically, without conscious effort.  The Mdnel-In which is shortened is “between its last deflection and the beginning of a new cycle of its completing process,” the si-do interval.  This shortening facilitates the completion of one cycle, and the commencement of a new cycle.   Beelzebub explains that the functioning of this Stopinder was thus predetermined to “be dependent only upon the affluence of forces, obtained from outside through that Stopinder from the results of the action of that cosmic concentration itself in which the completing process of this primordial fundamental sacred law flows.” (p.754) Somehow, the cosmos involved itself plays a role in bringing about the forces required to fill this Stopinder, hence it is called the ‘intentionally-actualized-Mdnel-In.’

The third Stopinder to be changed in its “subjective action” is the fifth, between sol and la in the octave, which is given the special name of ‘Harnel-Aoot.’  Beelzebub describes the disharmony in this Mdnel-In as flowing by itself from the change of the two other Stopinders, or from its “asymmetry ... in relation to the whole completing process ... .”  Because of the disharmony produced in this Stopinder, it can produce quite opposite result.  Beelzebub explains:
“If the completing process of this sacred law flows in conditions, where during its process that are many ‘extraneously-caused-vibrations,’ then all its functioning gives only external results.
    “But if this same process proceeds in absolute quiet without any external ‘extraneously-caused-vibrations’ whatsoever, then all the results of the action of its functioning remain within that concentration in which it completes its process, and for the outside, these results only become evident on direct and immediate contact with it.”  (p. 754)
Beelzebub explains that these two extreme conditions do not usually apply, as instead the actions of the process tend to be divided into both external and internal.  This quality of the Fifth Stopinder is essentially important to understand in order to grasp how life forms arose within the Universe through the processes of creation–to be addressed shortly; and to understanding the esoteric science of the soul elaborated by Beelzebub.
These seemingly obscure details of the Law of Sevenfoldness articulated by Beelzebub are of profound importance.  All of these processes described apply both to the Megalocosmos, and to the Tetartocosmes, the individual men-being, or to any other cosmos.  For any slug–who would like to acquire his or her own “I” and crystallize the higher being-bodies–these alterations to the Law of Sevenfoldness have profound implications for the inner alchemy of being. This disharmonized Stopinder has direct implications in terms of the evolution of the individual man-being, whether only internal or external results will be obtained, and whether or not the individual might attaining real “I.”   #1, 2

Beelzebub explains, to Hassein on one occasion, what it would mean if the intervals in the Sacred Heptaparaparshinokh had not been changed.  In this case:
“... the cosmic substances ... entering into such ‘apparatus-cosmoses’ for the local purpose of evolution, would accomplish their ascent up to their completing transmutation into other higher definite active elements without any obstacle and without any help coming from outside ... .”  (p.789)
All slugs would thus attain the highest levels of evolution, through no conscious labours and intentional suffering, no striving for self-perfection, and so on.  If the Law of Seven had not been modified, evolution would all be automatic and everything would just flow back into its completed results.  Similarly, if the law of Heptaparaparshinokh was not altered, the created ‘worlds’ or Megalocosmos would resolve back into the prime sources substance.

There are very deep meanings to these remarkable teachings which are not simply conveyed.  According to Beelzebub, the Megalocosmos was created according to the modified law of sevenfoldness, as this retards the resolution of the created world back into the prime source substances.

Further, under this new Trogoautoegocratic process, the Most Holy Sun Absolute itself requires input from outside–from the completed results within the Megalocosmos.  Beelzebub explains: “there were required outside of the Sun Absolute corresponding sources in which such forces could arise and from they could flow into the presence of the Most Most Holy Sun Absolute.”  Certain completed results are thus required from within the Megalacosmos, or from individual cosmoses, to flow back “into the presence” of the Most Holy Sun Absolute.  All of this serves to prevent the action of the Heropass, or Time, in diminishing the Most Holy Sun Absolute.

These are actually the most remarkable concepts, ideas and models of creation, elaborated by Beelzebub, unlike anything conceived by those ‘sorry-scientists’ on planet Earth, but having remarkable applications to the studies of life and creation.
Footnotes:  1.  In comparison to Ouspensky’s explanations of Gurdjieff’s teachings, Beelzebub adds new twists, turns and terminology in His explanations of the sacred Hepataparaparshinokh.   In Ouspensky’s writings there are two intervals in the octave where there are “missing semi-tones” –“discontinuities” in the development of vibrations through the law of the octave.  Ouspensky does not mention a third “disharmonized” Stopinder.   These “missing semi-tones” are between the notes mi-fa and si-do.  It is at these points, where ‘shocks’ or outside forces are required in order for a process of evolution and involution to occur.  Ouspensky uses the terms the “first mechanical shock” to describe how the mi-fa interval is breached, as of “conscious shocks” produced by an individual required to fill the other interval in the octave.

2.  In Section IV, Science of the Soul, these principles are used to explain the involution and evolution of the being-foods within human beings, and how the processes necessary for the crystallization of the higher being-bodies come about.  At this point, the focus is on the creation of the Megalocosmos.
