Etheric Vision - Density of the Chemical Ether (e.g., Sound Aether)

Hi, Eugene! I have wonderful discussion item I would like to add and I think this be a very nice discussion for our school to have because I have always wondered and been puzzled by what exactly Max Heindel meant when he spoke about the "density of ethers". Let me quote from the book "Etheric Vision and What It Reveals". In the book, which was written supposedly by "A Student" it is written the following: "By means of etheric sight it is possible to see everything that exists in the Etheric Region of the physical world. When this vision first develops it reveals the lowest, or Chemical Ether (e.g., Sound Aether), which varies from gray-blue, through blue, to violet, or a dark blue that is almost black. Max Heindel speaks of the Chemical Ether as "dark, almost black." Because of the interplay or intermingling of the other ethers in the Chemical Ether, this ether may also seem to be reddish-blue, magenta, violet, or purple, By means of etheric sight it is possible to see everything that exists in the Etheric Region of the physical world. When this vision first develops it reveals the lowest, or Chemical Ether, which varies from gray-blue, through blue, to violet, or a dark blue that is almost black. Max Heindel speaks of the Chemical Ether as “dark, almost black.” Because of the interplay or intermingling of the other ethers in the Chemical Ether, this ether may also seem to be reddish-blue, magenta, violet, or purple, according to the density of the ethers". 

So, my question is, how would the density of ethers work in relation to the different appearance of the chemical ether appearing in different colors like: reddish-blue, magenta, violet and so forth? Is it that reddish-blue has a higher density and violet have a lower density? Is there a connection to understanding this through music and sound? Thank you for all your help and time! Very excited to hear what you say!

    "question .... how would the density of ethers work in relation to the different appearance of the chemical ether appearing in different colors like: reddish-blue, magenta, violet and so forth?"

    To answer this question, one follows the path of aetheric heat into Material substances: air, water, earth. Heat in air appears as color phenomena which are soul-building, and then in water it appears as life building. Now in the earthly realm is mechanical forces. So we can see in water the two are related in an upper region which is soul-related, and a lower region where it is chemical-related. In the upper region we find luminosity, and in the lower region is phosphorescence (color made from the chemical activity of warmth). But all of them reveal the path of the permeation of heat or warmth.

    Now we can also use another path, and explain that water also permeates, but only up to fire, and down to the material, and with air and earth we can follow their paths too, but we find they do not allow us, and are stopped. So the permeation of warmth in all the regions also reveals something important about why we say there are four aethers, and also how these related to the 4 kingdoms of nature, and also the time elements.  In looking at a human being we have a very special relationship to the four aethers because of the Ego being.

    The spiritual path of the ego being, once it is awakened, enables one to consciously work into the inner nature, and through gradually spiritual development of the dormant forces found hidden in the soul, when these are brought into a condition of consciousness (through doing Rosicrucian exercises found in my books), then the soul can work on the aetheric substances of one's physical nature.

    "Is there a connection to understanding this through music and sound?"

    Sound as music and language is particular to the air and the soul. Here is created a space and conditions for the special activity of music and language to live and be transmitted. This relates to the higher task of this time, which is to penetrate the veils of nature all the way to the experience of Divine Beings.  There is the LONG path, which includes all the lower forms of activity associated with the realm of sound and music. When the soul is more sensitive, then it will add the Divine Aspects to the aether body and these will be nothing more than the Rudimentary Senses for the experiences which correspond to them and will be experienced later when the organs are awakened. That is why in the initial stages students are directed away from passion forming music, because the music will call into form the rudimentary substances, but these will attack the soul and work retroactively against it. the reason it works this way, and one could ask: Why do Divine Beings allow this? It is to stimulate the soul to find the correct path, but the danger is far more consequential, and it is the love the soul holds for depression and anxiety that makes further corruptions possible.

    The greatest fiend of Human Development today, and for this time, is Despair.  Teachers must ride the fine line of giving out a wisdom-guided freedom which must make allowances for transgressions on the path, but also Teach the that the Straight Path to the Goal is best!  And there is  a reason to be on the Straight Path than before, it is the appearance of Christ. When students are able to receive and follow the path of Strict advice, they can perceive as in an aetheric vision, what would have happened to them had they been on the other path. And let me reiterate: even for those that cannot keep up, but are willing to hear it, these can also be given the special aetheric vision in the aether body.  This is in our day to be understood as the appearance of the aether Christ that appears in the soul of the students of the spirit.  This is now, as you contemplate this the beautiful path we are have in our destiny and I have shown here how it relates to our Rosicrucian spiritual path in nature.

    We saw 'Rosicrucian Path' because it was on the Path to Damascus that Paul met the aetheric Christ. when this being appears before the student, it is a being of wisdom and guidance, and also touches the soul and awakens their aetheric senses symbolized in the Light that awakens the Roses of the Rose Cross, and the Cross represents the Chemical body which emits the soft and gentle blue and violet colors.
