This sums up my first rough draft on the
astral plane, for whomever it may help
so be it.
The Astral Plane is also called the Psychic Plane
and the Fourth Dimension (figuratively speaking).
"Within this world of motion and matter also
exists a world of emotion and idea kinda like
a fourth dimension"
COMPACT EXPLORATION OF THE SO CALLED PSYCHIC PLANE
THE FUNDAMENTAL ASSERTIONS OF THE ASTRAL WORLD
The Vibratory Mode of Planes
All the planes exist intermixed at varying degrees or levels
of vibration. The plane closest to the physical is the etheric
and consists of etheric doubles of every physical thing, the
next is the lower astral of perceptions and reactions and then
the higher astral, the mental plane of thought and analysis.
Each of these planes have their own subdivisions thought-etheric (thoughts
adhering to objects), mental-lower (intelligent emotional response), etc...
Each also has a division of sub-planes each a plane in itself.
Thus to the astral plane their are planes closer to this reality
of gardens, mysterious forests, hill covered plains, rocky deserts, &c.
and then planes consisting of things more disassociated from the
stability of matter of transformations, energies, thoughts made symbolic
mainly a plane of dreams, and further disassociated from the physical
is also a plane of formlessness and pure thought.
Each plane has it's own substance and everything has it's counter part
on one of the planes: Etheric, Astral, Spiritual

POSTULATING THEN FOUR SPECIFIC PLANES WITH AT LEAST 12 SUBPLANES EACH
AND VARIOUS DIVISIONS WHEREIN THE LAWS OF NATURE ARE REFLECTED
CONSISTING OF A MATTER OF INCREASING DURABILITY AND DEVIATION FROM
Of all these planes the astral is the closest to consciousness we
go there when we dream, sleep or have visions.
FROM THE LEVEL OF THE ASTRAL PLANE EVERY LIVING BEING POSSESSES AN
AURA FROM LAVA FLOWS, TO TREES AND ESPECIALLY COMPLEX OBJECTS SUCH
AS DIGITAL CIRCUITRY AND ESPECIALLY MAN AND ANIMALS. IN MAN AND ANIMALS
THIS AURA IS OVAL IN SHAPE AND IS TYPICALLY MULTI COLORED DEPENDING ON
HOW DEEP THE PSYCHIC PENETRATES INTO THE VARIOUS CENTERS OF ONES
WITHIN THIS OVAL ARE ALL THE VARIOUS CENTERS OF BEING AND ACTIVITY
THAT EXIST IN THE THING TYPIFIED AS A SPECTRUM OF COLOR.
ONES OWN PERSONA HERE CONSISTS OF A UNIQUE GLOW OF EMOTION AND COLOR
THAT'S KINDA LIKE COLOR AND THOUGHT INTERMIXED SO THAT EACH PERSON
POSSESSES A PERSONA IN THE FORM OF THOUGHT-MATTER, AN EMOTIONAL BODY,
A AURIC COLOR AND THE VARIOUS GRADATIONS OF LIGHT COMING FROM THEIR BEING.
FROM THIS VIEW-POINT ALL THINGS ARE SEE FROM WITHIN AND WITHOUT
, EVEN THEIR MAKEUP AND ESSENCE.
THOUGHTS ADHERE TO PLACES THE FORMER SHELLS OF THE DEAD ALSO
INHABIT HERE INCLUDING A POOL OF PREVIOUS THOUGHT AND MEDITATIONS
MAKING UP THE UNIVERSAL SUBCONSCIOUS.
FORMER EXPERIENCES EXIST AS A POOL FROM WHICH ALL THOUGHT
DERIVES, THE EXPERIENCES OF FORMER BEINGS THEN IN TURN
TAINTING THE POOL FROM WHENCE SOULS DERIVE.
ON THE ASTRAL PLANE ONE MAY PASS THROUGH WALLS AND TWO THINGS CAN
EXIST IN THE SAME PLACE, IN OTHER WORDS THE MATTER OF THE ASTRAL
PLANE IS MORE DURABLE THAN THE PHYSICAL'S.
One may meditate on certain symbols such as a triangle, a cross,
a pentagram, a hexagram, a septagram to open up channels of
previous thought and idea into their mind.
ON THE ASTRAL PLANE THE MAKE-UP AND ESSENCE DOWN TO THE TINIEST
OF PARTICLES MAY BE SEEN.
WORDS ARE EFFICACIOUS TOOLS WHEREIN THE CROWDS WHICH HAVE REPEATED
THEM IMBUE THEM WITH POWER. THERE IN THE COMBINATION OF LETTER
AND WORD ARE ALSO KEYS TO THE CONJURATION OF CERTAIN ESPECIAL POWERS.
Thus conjurations written in a dead tongue have an especial virtue.
IDEAS AND WORDS ARE FORCES OF THEIR OWN ON THE ASTRAL PLANE.
IMAGES ARE LIVING BEINGS IMBUED BY THEIR BEHOLDERS WITH VIRTUE.
ASTRAL CURRENTS MAY BUILD UP BEHIND AN ETHERIC DOUBLE BY ABSORPTION
THE ASSIMILATION OF THE FORCE BY THE NEGATION OF IT'S EFFECT
THAT IF IT'S INTENDED EFFECT DOES NOT OCCUR IT'S ENERGY IS ABSORBED
MANY DIFFERENT BEINGS AND CREATURES INHABIT THE ASTRAL PLANE,
SOME ARE THE DEAD SHELLS OF DISEMBODIED ANIMALS AND MAN, OTHERS
DEMONS (LESSER AND MALEFICENT OR SPURIOUS) AND SPIRITS (HIGHER AND BENEFICENT OR
NEUTRAL) AND EMBODIED HUMAN BEINGS.
FROM THIS POINT OF VIEW BEINGS OF ANOTHER ORDER MAY INHABIT, INFECT (BE ATTACHED),
OBSESS (ATTACK), OR POSSESS (CONTROL) A HUMAN BEING.
EMBODIED HUMAN BEINGS WITHIN CERTAIN LIMITATIONS HAVE THE SAME ABILITY TO
OBSESS AND POSSESS OTHER HUMANS OR ANIMALS.
ACCORDING TO METEMPSYCHOSIS MAN POSSESSES A SUBTLE BODY WHICH INHABITS
SUITABLE SOULS CONTAINING THE FORMER IMPRESSIONS OF PAST INCARNATIONS.
THAT BY THE NATURE OF A MAN AND HIS OR HER VIRTUE CERTAIN PAST INCARNATIONS
Herein concludes the text
Not one of these assertions should be taken as absolutely
true, as no dogmatism is herein implied, but it should
tested to see if it is true to oneself first.
