The Ascendant, the Sun and the Moon Acting as a PID Controller in the Astrological Chart

This article is intended for people with some engineering background. The three most important factors in any astrological chart are the Ascendant, the Sun and the Moon. The way they operate can be explained with an analogy from the engineering field. The idea came to me while I was presenting a lecture to a group of professional engineers and technicians on PID loop tuning. The principle of any loop tuning is to keep the process variable (PV) as close as possible to some preset value, called set point (SP), in spite of constantly changing disturbances. If we regard the whole setup as a black box, then its output (which is analogous to the process variable), has to remain at all times as close as possible to the set point, regardless of constantly changing input conditions. The human behaviour can be described to a large extent on the basis of a such black box operation. In the ideal case scenario, the people’s behaviour should be steady, and closely approximating their set point, which in this case is equivalent to their preordained spiritual path. The tapestry of life situations in which people find themselves are analogous to the constantly changing input signal. The only difference is in the complexity of the function that has to be calculated in the black box in order to produce the desired output. And yet, we still can draw parallels between the two black boxes. We still can roughly delineate the main life progressions of a person, as a function of his spiritual development.In order to do that, we need to concentrate initially only on the three most important factors in any astrological chart – these are the Ascendant, the Sun and the Moon.

The Advent of Ahriman, by Robert Mason

ABSTRACT: A powerful spiritual being, called “Ahriman” (or “Satan”), will incarnate in a human body. The terms “soul” and “spirit” have clear meanings. Earthly/cosmic evolution is an outcome of the deeds of the Gods. The central event of earth-evolution was the Incarnation of Christ. Spiritual powers of opposition are active: Lucifer, Ahriman, Sorat. Ahriman is the inspirer of materialistic science and commercialism, and permeates modern culture with deadening forces. Ordinary scientific thinking is only semi-conscious; we can, however, make thinking conscious. The spirits of opposition are necessary in the Gods’ evolutionary design. Ahriman manifests especially at 666-year intervals; the contemporary is 1998 AD = 3×666. Goethean science is a life-positive alternative to Ahrimanic science. Ahriman-in-the-flesh will likely present himself as the Christ. The Christ does not reappear in a physical body, but in a super-physical, ethereal form. Ahriman may incarnate “macrocosmically” in our computers. Mankind will acquire new faculties of thinking-consciousness and clairvoyance. Ahriman seeks to pervert these faculties, and to divert mankind and the earth from their destined paths in the Gods’ evolutionary plan. Ahrimanic secret societies influence politics, finance, and culture. A false “Maitreya” is “emerging” as a false Christ. An epistemology of conscious thinking supports the expansion of consciousness to the perception of spiritual truths. Bibliography.
