Meaningless legacy of a patriarchal Bodiless God

In every system of higher knowledge there is one ubiquitous principle found at its core. It may be called “the Law of Three” for it expresses an irreducible truth that at the heart of the creation lies a tripartite harmony of energy or “seed” from which the entire cosmos evolves. The three principle gods of India, the “Trimurti” of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva are representative of this essential truth and reflect its supreme importance. The ancient tradition of Ayurveda honors this essential harmony of Three as the “Tridoshas” (the three energies), the primary factors of the human body that govern our health. In the Bhagavad Gita this occult knowledge is described as the “Three Gunas” and is extolled by Krishna as the basis of an Ultimate Wisdom. In Christianity this eternal formula is simply known as the “Trinity of God.”
In more modern times this sublime principle was appropriated by the philosopher Hegel to describe his dialectical process of Thesis, Antithesis and Synthesis. It was re-discovered by the 20th century mathematician/scientist, Peter Plichta who wrote:

'My thoughts then turned once more to theoretical physics. In this science coincidence has been accorded the status of a demi-god, From the - so apparent - coincidence of all processes in the electron cloud it was rashly inferred that all processes in the universe were caused by coincidence. A comfortable substitute had thus been found for God. From the natural constants to the human mind - everything is a coincidence.' (p-86)

'...[But]the origin of life cannot be explained by linear random chains...and that is precisely what the proponents of quantum mechanics have failed to understand from the very outset."

'...It was becoming increasingly clear to me that the same natural law [the law of 3], must be at the foundation of all three natural sciences. And the plan must have been based on number theory because I was constantly encountering the same numbers... This means that no such thing as coincidence in the real sense can exist at all.' (p.92) Peter Plichta, God's Secret Formula - Deciphering the Riddle of the Universe and the Prime Number Code

The ‘Law of Three’ permeates myth, legend and religious forms because it is an irreducible archetype. For this reason, among many others, I have found it stunningly naive that for over 36 years many of the followers of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother have glibly dismissed Patrizia Norelli-Bachelet (Thea) and her prodigious body of Supramental knowledge as irrelevant to their epochal yoga. Was it not Sri Aurobindo himself who wrote?
“While the Divine is One, it is also manifold... It is at once Transcendental, Cosmic and Individual. By knowing the eternal unity of these three powers of the eternal manifestation, God, the Cosmos and the Individual self, and their intimate necessity to each other, we come to understand existence itself.…” Sri Aurobindo, The Synthesis of Yoga
Until this error is corrected, we will continue to limit our inquiry to the Transcendent Divine which Sri Aurobindo embodied and look to the likes of Whitehead, Wilbur and others to explain the more subtle implications of his yoga. Without the knowledge of the Cosmic and Individual Divine that the Mother and Thea have unveiled, we will continue to suffer the meaningless legacy of a patriarchal Bodiless God, the worship of which has entombed the higher truth in a remote static peace and aborted its descent through the feminine into Matter. This is the true reason why this greatest spiritual work of the age has languished in the half light of a mental consciousness for nearly forty years. For more information on Supramental Time see:
