Law of three: one down, one to go
Having begun an examination of the ‘law of three’, we can proceed to a similar task with the law of seven.
The core of the Gurdjieff teaching by his own declaration was the enneagram, which attempts to unite these two laws into a single framework.
It is difficult to determine whether Gurdjieff was using guile here, or was simply stupid. There is very little chance that this symbology is going to foot the bill for a set of cosmic laws. If we examine the inordinate difficulties scientists have with such laws, the idea that someone with mystic higher consciousness is going to resolve all the problems is balderdash of the first order.
