The first rule of the true esoteric societies is to stop gossiping and lying.

I have been working with 2 editions lately because of trying to dig out all messages, relevant to this “ill fated planet” now on its course to transhumanism. I prefer to use the books from 1973 (Copyright 1950 by G. Gurdjieff), the pdf form is a 1992 version which I use for excerpts.
Most changes I found of cosmetic order, but there is one which to my perception alters the meaning of an important subject:
It is in the chapter 43 Beelzebub’s Opinion of War (3th. book p.294 1950 Copyright)
….the vibrations required by Nature, which have to be formed from the radiations issuing from beings both during their existence as well as from the process of their Rascooarno, have no significance quantitatively, but only qualitatively.
…. the vibrations required by Great Nature that are formed from the emanations issuing from the process of their ‘rascooarno’ have no significance quantitatively, but only qualitatively.
In the first translation my logic reads that not only death but also the way of living create the vibrations required by Nature and it is the way of living which determines the quality of vibrations
In the second translation I read only death creates the vibrations required by Nature.
Perhaps some new people not so familiar with this work and having at their disposal but the last version of BT could come to the conclusion that only wars can satiate the needs of Nature (which seems exactly like what is going on at the moment, with all depopulation talks behind the scenes.
The VERY OPPOSITE message had Beelzebub in his mind for us. He wrote it specifically for the future generations because he predicted we would get ourselves into this mess we are right now.
1931 version has many differences and this additional paragraph was left out in the later versions :
“….As on your planet your favorites begun to dominate and had in themselves corresponding organizations, that is why during the whole time it was so, these vibrations required by Nature were obtained almost through the radiations of your favorites alone. But when Meditation disappeared from among your favorites and the quality of their radiations ceased to correspond to the vibrations required by Nature, then from that time on, Nature begun to replace these vibrations with the vibrations from which consists the essensification as it is called , or the life of the three-centered beings-men of the planet Earth.”
I am not a scholar but I would prefer eugenists to get the 1931 Manuscript into their hands rather than 1992 version. It would be safer for humanity.
After all – garbage in garbage out. Why not start with that?
….the conditions of being-existence were especially created for the three-brained beings through the most saintly labors of the essence-loving, Very Saintly Ashiata Shiemash.
“During that period, not only did their ‘death rate’ begin to decline, but
what they call their ‘birth rate’ also declined.
“And this was because the three-brained beings there were then existing more or less as is becoming to three-centered beings, and the emanations issuing from them yielded vibrations more akin to the vibrations required from them by Nature, both for the Most Great Common-Cosmic Trogoautoegocrat in general and for the maintenance of the Moon and Anulios in particular. And thereafter, Great Nature did not fail to adapt herself to the diminishing of their birth rate as she has less need of those vibrations that are obtained from the destruction of the existence of beings… the more so as in recent times the need for the said vibrations for the maintenance of the existence of the planet Moon had to be diminished.
“Thereby there was practically demonstrated one of the cosmic laws called
the ‘law of the equilibration of vibrations,’ that is, vibrations arising from the
evolution and involution of the cosmic substances required for the Most Great
....the vibrations required by Great Nature that are formed from the emanations issuing from beings both during their existence as well as from the process of their ‘Rascooarno’ (point of death) have no significance quantitatively, but only qualitatively.
….on account of the gradual and steady deterioration in the quality of the vibrations emanating from their presence for the needs of Nature, there was a shortening in the duration of their existence and at the same time an increase in their ‘birth rate. ‘
“Here it is extremely important to note that these terrifying processes (of reciprocal destruction) could never have occurred among the three-brained beings of the planet Earth if those data for engendering the being-impulse of Conscience, which had remained intact in their subconscious—data to which the Most Saintly Ashiata Shiemash was the first to turn his attention, and which he relied upon for the fulfillment of his mission—had taken part in the functioning of that consciousness of theirs which has become habitual for them during their waking state.
Excerpts from: Beelzebub’s Tales to his grandson G.I.G
“I first learned that the destiny of the three-brained beings (humans)arising on this planet is chiefly to elaborate, by the very process of their existence, the vibrations required by Nature for the maintenance of those former parts of their planet now called ‘Moon’ and ‘Anulios’ ……
“His Conformity then told me that although the movement of the two former parts of the planet Earth had been finally regulated to accord with the movement of the general harmony, and though all apprehension of some surprise or other in the immediate future had vanished, nevertheless, to avoid any possible complications in the distant future it had been categorically decided by the Most High and Most Sacred Individuals to take the necessary measures to insure the formation on the Earth of what is called the sacred ‘askokin,’ so that this sacred cosmic substance, indispensable for the maintenance of the Moon and Anulios, might issue continuously from your planet.
“His Conformity also explained that this cosmic substance, the sacred ‘askokin,’ exists throughout the Universe, generally blended with the sacred substances ‘abrustdonis’ and ‘helkdonis,’ and therefore, in order to have the degree of vivifyingness required for such maintenance, the sacred substance ‘askokin’ must first be freed from the other two substances.
“To tell the truth, my boy, I did not understand at once all that he told me, it all became clear to me only later when, during my studies of the fundamental cosmic laws, I learned that these sacred substances ‘abrustdonis’ and ‘helkdonis’ are precisely those substances which enter into the formation and perfecting of the higher being-bodies of the three-brained beings—that is, the ‘kesdjan body’ and the ‘body of the soul’—and that the separation of the sacred ‘askokin’ from the two other substances proceeds when beings, on whatever planet they may be, transmute these sacred substances in themselves for the forming and perfecting of their higher bodies, by means of conscious labor and intentional suffering.
“And when I became interested in these favorites of yours and began to observe and study their strange psyche, I finally understood why and to what ends Great Nature herself and the Most High and Most Saintly Individuals are always patiently adapting themselves to all things. In this connection, the following personal opinion was formed in me.
“If only these favorites of yours would seriously ponder all this and serve Nature honestly in this respect, their being-self-perfecting might then proceed automatically, even without the participation of their consciousness, and in any case, the poor Nature of this ill-fated planet would not have to ‘puff and blow’ to adapt herself to remain within the common-cosmic harmony.
“But to the misfortune of everything existing in the Megalocosmos, there is no honesty in your favorites in fulfilling their duties, not even toward that Nature to whom, in truth, they owe their very existence.”
……….when it became clear that there had entirely disappeared from the psyche of your favorites the instinctive need for conscious labor and intentional suffering in order to take in and transmute in themselves the sacred substances abrustdonis and helkdonis—thus releasing the sacred askokin for the maintenance of the Moon and Anulios—Great Nature was constrained to adapt herself and to extract this sacred substance by other means, one of them being precisely that periodic terrifying process of reciprocal destruction.

A central idea in Gurdjieff’s system of knowledge outlines one of the two fundamental laws governing every process in the universe. According to this idea, the universe is a singular wholeness that divides itself into seven degrees of density. These divisions are in turn divided into seven degrees of density, and so on. By the action of this law, the universe expresses the eternal relationship between its wholeness and its divisions, as well as the relationships between all the divisions.

is determined not by the density of matter but by the density of vibrations. The speed of vibrations of a matter indicate the degree of intelligence of the given matter. You must remember that there is nothing dead or inanimate in nature. Everything in its own way is alive , everything in its own way is intelligent and conscious. Only this consciousness and intelligence is expressed in a different way on different levels of being, on different scales. The degree of consciousness corresponds to the degree of density or the speed of vibrations. This means that the denser the matter the less conscious it is, the less intelligent. And the denser the vibrations, the more conscious and the more intelligent the matter.
