QUALIFIED ETHICAL SYSTEMS
Some ethical systems involve the interaction between multiple
levels or degrees of reality. More conventionally, they would be
called metaphysical systems. But that application is very rough.
Planar transcendence is more like an existential tool than a
Some examples present themselves:
1. The control of demons by the Star of David.
2. The achievement of Nirvana by Buddhas.
3. God's division between the heavens and the earth.
4. The stories of creating perfect works of art.
5. The story from 1001 Arabian Nights of the 7 Seals of Solomon.
6. The story of animating a clay golem.
What is common to all of these stories is a kind of personal
mindful mastery, which then applies to the world over which one
has argued to become ruler.
Harmless knowledge = ruler of hell.
Worldly knowledge = realm of Nirvana.
Completeness of soul = dividing heaven and earth.
Idiosyncracy = creating perfect works of art.
Magic of the immediate = traveling to see the ultimate.
Total spiritual knowledge = giving life to clay.
These explanations are but bits and pieces of something which
remains inaccessible in the third dimension.
A frequent motif of these things is additional powers like flight
and invisibility. Perhaps they would be common fare in the fourth
or fifth dimension. For reasons like this, unlocking further
dimensions has been an argument for their possibility. Yet,
questioning the universalism of the next world by opening a portal
might have the effect of canceling the power. By this argument it
must be seen that ignoring the laws of the realm is either
foolhardy, or brings punishment.
Another factor may be that there are systems of attainment to
reach high levels of various occult disciplines. Some of these
levels are described in The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, and in the
