The Real Meaning of Egregore

The word "Egregore" derives from the Greek word egrégoroi, meaning "watchers", which also transliterates as "grigori". The word appears in the Septuagint translation of the Book of Lamentations, as well as the Book of Jubilees and the Book of Enoch ( Hermes ). Even being derived from the word Grigori, which acquired a somewhat negative aspectation over the time, the general concept of Egregore is not evil.  Gaetan Delaforge, inGnosis Magazine in 1987, defines an Egregore as a kind of group mind which is created when people consciously come together for a common purpose.

Egregore (also egregor) is an occult concept representing a "thoughtform" or "collective group mind", an autonomous psychic entity made up of, and influencing, the thoughts of a group of people. The symbiotic relationship between an egregore and its group has been compared to the more recent, non-occult concepts of the corporation (as a legal entity) and the meme.

In the Book of Daniel 4:13, 17, 23 (ESV)[4] there are three references to the class of "watcher, holy one" (watcher, Aramaic `iyr; holy one, Aramaic qaddiysh). 

  • it is similar to :  Tulpa (Tibetanསྤྲུལ་པWyliesprul-paSanskritनिर्मित NirMita[1] and निर्माण nirmāṇa;[2] "to build" or "to construct") also translated as "magical emanation",[3] "conjured thing" [4] and "phantom" [5] is a concept in mysticism of a being or object which is created through sheer spiritual or mental discipline alone. It is defined in Indian Buddhist texts as any unreal, illusory or mind created apparition.

  • Ptah's original name in Ancient Egyptian is reconstructed to have been pronounced as *Pitáḥ based on the occurrence of his name in hieroglyphics, ptḥ, surviving into Coptic as Ptah, just as it is now written in English. The name was also borrowed early on into Greek as Φθα Phtha. The meaning of his name, which can be translated as "the opener," is somewhat ambiguous, though it may be related to the "opening of the mouth" ritual that was often credited to him. (Budge 1895, cviii) However, it should be noted that the only uses of this verb in Egyptian texts place this "opening" in a very particular context, as represented by the verbs "to engrave," "to carve," or "to chisel"—a usage that is also paralleled in Hebrew. (Budge 1969, Vol. I, 500) In this way, the god's name echoes his association with crafting and creation.

When a group of people pray and meditate collectively towards an objective, an Egregore of protection and blessing is sent forth, as a circle of Light that shields and safeguards the objective of the prayers.

Psychologically speaking, an Egregore is that "atmosphere” or "personality" that develops among groups independent of any of its members.  It is the feeling or impression you get when walking into a neighborhood that “feels different” from the surrounding area, or when visiting a club or association that has been around for a long time.

In an occult or magical context, an Egregore is the general imprint that encircles a group entity.  It is the summary of the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual energies generated by two or more people vibrating together towards the same goal; being a sub-product of our personal and collective creative process as co-creators of our reality.

  • Nafs (نَفْس) is an Arabic word (cognate of the Hebrew word nefesh נפש) occurring in the Qur'an and means self, psyche[1] ego or soul. In the Quran, the word is used in both the individualistic (e.g. verse 2:48) and collective sense (verse 4:1), indicating that although humanity is united in possessing the qualities of a "soul/nafs/consciousness" they are individually responsible for exercising the agencies of their "free will" that it provides them.

An Egregore has developed to the point of attaining an independent existence as an entity itself or as an intentionally created entity, such as a servitor, that has grown in power well beyond its original design. To a non-religious practitioner of magic, an Egregore and a god, or goddess, would be interchangeable terms.  To a religious practitioner, an Egregore would be just below the level of a god or goddess.

The vast majority of human beings both incarnated and disincarnated are, in one way or form, connected to an Egregore.

What is social mood? Social mood is a shared mental state among humans that arises from social interaction. Social mood predisposes individuals in the group toward emotions, beliefs and actions. It fluctuates constantly in a fractal pattern. It is unconscious, unremembered and endogenously regulated.

  • The Mind Parasites (1967) by Colin Wilson

    Colin Wilson, an existential philosopher who wrote prolifically on such subjects as criminology, mysticism, ancient mysteries, and the paranormal, also penned a number of science-fiction novels. Of these, the best, in my opinion, is The Mind Parasites. Borrowing from H. P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos, the story details the study by Professor Gilbert Austin of a mysterious, invisible intelligence known as the Tsathogguans. These “mind parasites” hide within the collective psyche of humanity, sapping our energy and will and preventing us from accessing our true potential. By gaining liberation from the Tsathogguans, Austin attains a state of consciousness comparable to what Buddhists term enlightenment.  ( Five Science Fiction Novels That Every Fortean Should Read )

    Sumer :  IGIGI - Those Who See and Observe

    Secular scholars view these "watchers, holy ones" as perhaps showing an influence of Babylonian religion, that is an attempt by the author of this section of Daniel to present Nebuchadnezzar's Babylonian gods recognizing the power of the god of Israel as "Most High."[7] The Greek Septuagint version differs from the Aramaic Massoretic Text: for example, the Aramaic text is ambiguous about who is telling the story of verse 14, whether it is Nebuchadnezzar, or the watcher in his dream

    Philo

    According to PrEv 1.10.1-2 of Philo of Byblos, Sanchuniathon mentioned "some living beings who had no perception, out of whom intelligent beings came into existence, and they were called Zophasemin (Heb. șōpē-šāmayim, that is, 'Watchers of Heaven'). And they were formed like the shape of an egg."

    *Voyager pictures reveal Solar System is egg-shaped  ;)

    Since Ancient Times to the Present Day, we have surrounded the egg with magical and supernatural beliefs. Eggs symbolize birth and new life, and were believed to ensure fertility. They also represent rebirth, and hence long life and even immortality. Eggs symbolize life in its different stages of development, encompassing the magic and mystery of creation. 

    Early mythmakers viewed both the sun and the egg as the progenitors of all life; the round, yellow yolk symbolizing the sun
    In Europe during pagan and Christian times, eggs symbolized life and resurrection, leading to the Easter tradition we have of giving and taking Easter Eggs to remind of Christ’s Resurrection.
    In Germanic and Slavonic lands, people smeared their hoes with eggs in the hope of transferring the eggs’ fertility to the soil. 
    In Iran, newlyweds present each other with eggs.
    In seventeenth-century France, a bride broke an egg when entering her new home. 
    Clearly, in these numerous and diverse cultures, the egg went beyond a mere food but as a compelling and significant symbol of fertility and the embodiment of life. 

    In ancient Australia for example, the Aborigines placed strict taboos altogether on the consumption of emu eggs laid by their tribal totems, mindful of the sacred meaning they possessed.
    The Hindu explanation of the beginning of the world saw it as a cosmic egg. First there was non-existence that became existent, and turned into an enormous egg, which incubated for a year and then split open, one part being silver and the other gold. The silver half formed the earth; the gold, the sky; the outer membrane, mountains; the inner, mist and clouds; the veins were rivers, and the fluid part of the egg was the ocean, and from all of these came in turn, the sun.
    Furthermore, eggs were often used for divining purposes, enhancing their symbolism of life to life in the future.
    The Chinese and some southern Asian tribal groups used chicken and duck eggs to divine the future; painting, boiling and then “reading” the patterns in their cracks. 
    The egg is an awe-inspiring universal symbol interwoven by a panoply of symbolic, metaphorical and philosophical connotations through the ages.

    "Know, therefore, that in the hen's egg is the greatest help with respect to the proximity and relationship of the matter in nature, for in it there is a spirituality and conjunction of elements, and an earth which is golden in its tincture."

    An archetype can be:

    • a statement, pattern of behavior, or prototype which other statements, patterns of behavior, and objects copy or emulate;
    • a Platonic philosophical idea referring to pure forms which embody the fundamental characteristics of a thing;
    • a collectively-inherited unconscious idea, pattern of thought, image, etc., that is universally present in individual psyches, as in Jungian psychology;

    • Number . . . should not be understood solely as a construction of consciousness, but also as an archetype and thus as a constituent of nature both without and within.  -Marie-Louise von Franz

     

    • The very numbers you use in counting are more than you take them for. They are at the same time mythological entities (for the Pythagoreans they were even divine), but you are certainly unaware of this when you use numbers for a practical purpose. Jung (1961)

    Jung on Numbers

    on Jung’s usage and his definitions, and he defined number as: “peculiar entities with irreducible properties,”[9] “not only concepts but something more—autonomous entities which somehow contain more than just quantities…”,[10] entities that have “existed from eternity and occur regularly.”[11] Jung regarded numbers as “archetypes of order,”[12] and “mythological entities,”[13] and, as such, numbers “… are not inventions of the conscious mind but are spontaneous products of the unconscious, as has been sufficiently shown by experience.”[14] Experience is the touchstone of truth for the empiricist,[15] and in this, as in so many ways in his work, Jung came to his definitions and ideas about numbers from his personal observations in his work with patients and their dreams.

    Jung thought of numbers as archetypes[25] and, as such, they were “pre-existent to consciousness.”[26] That is, they were not something humans invented, but were more something we “found or discovered.”[27] In a footnote in an essay “On the Nature of the Psyche,” Jung noted that “A mathematician once remarked that everything in science was man-made except numbers, which had been created by God himself.”[28]

    Archetypes are autonomous and “condition consciousness,”i.e. they spontaneously give rise to certain behaviors or reactions, independent of our ego desires, and they can pattern daily living. Hypothesizing that numbers are archetypes, Jung ventured to suggest that numbers, like other archetypes, are “spontaneously produced by the unconscious,”[30] and “show a tendency to behave in a special way.”[31]

    Continuing the theme of number-as-archetype, Jung felt numbers “… possess numinosity and mystery… and all numbers from 1 to 9 are sacred,…”[32] By saying numbers have numinosity, Jung implied that numbers can link us to something larger than ourselves: the Divine, the Universe, cosmic reality. Being mysterious symbols, numbers can never be fully understood or boxed up with a simple definition.[33] Number will always elude the complete grasp of our logical minds.

    § AKIRA  OST - Theme (Kaneda) §

    Like other types of archetypes, numbers “… have existed from eternity,”[34] and “belong to both worlds, the real and the imaginary; it [number] is visible as well as invisible, quantitative as well as qualitative.”[35] While we in modern culture tend to think of numbers as simple devices to quantify reality, calculate budgets, balance the checkbook and perform various engineering and scientific endeavors, or as a way to label the days of the week, month and year, Jung saw numbers very differently: as “peculiar entities with irreducible properties.”[36] These entities have functions that go far beyond our common uses of numbers.

    Ideas and Reflections Associated with Ayahuasca Visions

     data indicate that common content items appear in the visions of individuals from different personal and cultural backgrounds. The most salient of these are serpents, the large cats (jaguars, tigers and pumas, but not lions), birds and palaces. Other frequently seen items include beings of all sorts, scenes pertaining to ancient civilizations (notably Egypt and the pre-Colombian American high cultures), open landscapes (e.g., large meadows and savannas) as well as celestial and heavenly scenes. Most of the objects seen in the visions are made of gold and gilded material, crystal, precious stones and white cloth. The corpus of ayahuasca visions depicted in Ayahuasca Visions (Luna & Amaringo, 1993) exhibit similar patterns. From the point of view of cognitive psychology, such findings are significant because they seem to attest to a level of cognitive universals of a totally new kind.

        The Biblical account of Moses' birth provides him with a folk etymology to explain the ostensible meaning of his name.[12][13] He is said to have received it from Pharaoh's daughter: "he became her son. She named him Moses (Moshe), saying, "I drew him out (Meshitihu) of the water ( nun )."

        Several etymologies have been proposed. An Egyptian root msy, 'child of', has been considered as a possible etymology, arguably an abbreviation of a theophoric name, as for example in Egyptian names like T Hu T moses (Thoth created him) and Ramesses (Ra created him)

        Another hypothesis would link it to an Egyptian word "to conceive". Abraham Yahuda, based on the spelling given in the Tanakh, argues that it combines 'water' or 'seed' and 'pond, expanse of water', thus yielding the sense of 'child of the Nile' ( "her" mw-še)

      "...Therefore, we may consequently state that: this world is indeed a living being endowed with a soul and intelligence ... a single visible living entity containing all other living entities, which by their nature are all related." Plato, Timeus, 29-30

      The world is a living being and is connected to the natural world as the human soul is connected to the body. As above, so below. This idea flourished in Neoplatonism and, later, Renaissance Hermeticism. Plotinus honed Plato’s idea into a powerful cosmological and metaphysical teaching.

      By the time of the Renaissance, the idea of the Anima Mundi became a prominent teaching among many thinkers who leaned toward the esoteric. The Roman Church seemed to have problems with this view. In the late 1590’s, the Inquisition accused Giordano Bruno of pantheism simply because he espoused the teaching of the Anima Mundi. Earlier so-called heresies, such as the various Gnostic sects, adhered to this view, as well. The alchemists had adopted it too. 

      In archetypal psychology, the Ars Memoria plays an important role. Plato wrote some very relevant things concerning memory and the soul. Plato believed that memory is

      that power by which the soul is enabled to profer in some future period, some former energy: and the energy of this power is reminiscence. Now the very essence of intellect is energy, and all its perceptions are nothing more than visions of itself: but all the energies of soul are derived from intellectual illumination. Hence we may compare intellect to light, the soul to an eye, and Memory to that power by which the soul is converted to the light, and actually perceives. But the visions of the soul participate of greater or less reality, in proportion as she is more or less intimately converted to the divine light of intellect. In the multitude of mankind, indeed, the eye of the soul perceives with but a glimmering light, being accustomed to look constantly abroad into the dark and fluctuating regions of sense, and to contemplate solely the shadowy forms of imagination; in consequence of which, their memory is solely employed on objects obscure, external, and low.

      But in the few who have purified that organ of the soul, by which truth can alone be perceived, and which, as Plato says, is better worth saving than ten thousand eyes of sense; who have disengaged this eye from that barbaric clay with which it was buried, and have by this means turned it as from some benighted day, to bright and real vision: in these, Souls, Memory and Reminiscense, are entirely conversant with those divine ideal forms, so familiar to the soul before her immersion in body (From a footnote to The Hymns of Orpheus, translated by Thomas Taylor, 1792)
      3027500?profile=RESIZE_180x180

      Plato taught that the world of Ideas is the true reality, and that appearances and particulars are relatively unreal. The purpose of human life, in his estimation, is for souls to participate in this realm of Ideas. Basically, the soul becomes more intelligible by focusing on imperceptibles (the Forms) instead of constantly concentrating on the world of perceptibles (this world, matter, literal reality).

      I would add that the realm of Ideas includes metaphor, images, dreams, myths, etc. In my thinking, these have more durable substance than perceptibles. So, I suppose I am saying that the soul is fashioned as one learns to pay attention to Imperceptibles.

      Plato made an enormous contribution to depth psychology, as he did to philosophy.

      Jung’s theory of the archetypes is similar to Plato’s theory of Forms. Plato would say that for everything there is a Form, which is the original blueprint of a particular thing. Just so, the archetypes of the collective unconscious are patterns of inner workings which supply a certain “inborn manner of comprehension” (Bennet 69). But, instead of placing the Forms in a world totally separate from ours, as Plato did, Jung’s archetypes are based in the primal layer of the human psyche. In other words, the soul is interwoven into the body. Not just the brain, mind you, but the entire human body.

      In his use of the Greek word, metaxy, in several important dialogues, Plato gave to depth psychology the notion that there is an in-between state that is neither mortal nor divine, neither matter nor spirit, neither light nor darkness. This is what we refer to as soul. In Plato’s Symposium, Socrates argues that Eros is a daimon who is in-between (metaxy) gods and mortals. Indeed, according to Socrates,

      the whole of the daimonic is between [metaxy] god and mortal” (202d11-e1).
      • To a non-religious practitioner of magic, an Egregore and a god, or goddess, would be interchangeable terms.  To a religious practitioner, an Egregore would be just below the level of a god or goddess.

       the left hand is an attribute of the moon, a symbol of femininity and intuition....  It's interesting that in Egypt and Western occult traditions the left eye is considered a lunar trait and a symbol of northern direction. and The right eye is a solar symbol and represents southern direction

      • Sufis believe that, expressed in one way, humanity is evolving to a certain destiny. We are all taking part in that evolution. Organs come into being as a result of the need for specific organs (Rumi). The human being's organism is producing a new complex of organs in response to such a need. In this age of the transcending of time and space, the complex of organs is concerned with the transcending of time and space.

        ... How are these organs developed? By the Sufi method. How do we know that we are developing them? Only through experience.

        the Light Verse from the Qu'ran (  Ayat aN-Nur ) - Sura 24, verse 35. To the Sufis, this verse exemplifies the very idea of illumination

        • The word L OR D in Hebrew gives 86 as numerical value, just as the word Elohim: phe, aleph, he, giving 86 = 80+1+5. ;)
        • Quran ascribes to Sol O Mon a great level of wisdom, knowledge and power Quran 27/15–17 According to Islamic holy scripture, he knew the "language of the birds" (Mantiq al-tayr)

          In Egyptian Arabic, hieroglyphic writing is called "the alphabet of the birds". In Ancient Egyptian itself, the hieroglyphic form of writing was given the name Mdw-Ntjr ("words of the gods" or "divine language").

        • SB 14: O mother, in this forest all the birds have risen onto the beautiful branches of the trees to see Krishna. With closed eyes they are simply listening in silence to the sweet vibrations of His flute, and they are not attracted by any other sound. Surely these birds are on the same level as great sages.

    • “TRIPPING OVER JOY

      What is the difference
      Between your experience of Existence
      And that of a saint?

      The saint knows
      That the spiritual path
      Is a sublime chess game with God

      And that the Beloved
      Has just made such a Fantastic Move

      That the saint is now continually
      Tripping over Joy
      And bursting out in Laughter
      And saying, “I Surrender!”

      Whereas, my dear,
      I am afraid you still think
      You have a thousand serious moves.”


      Hafez
