|The Mother's inscription for Volume 4 (1963) of her
Agenda of the Supramental Action Upon Earth
(Note: The Mother's Symbol contains the POINT at the Center)
In late September I was shown an intriguing comment made by Sri Aurobindo a day after his 63rd birthday in 1935:
'Now I have got the hang of the whole hanged thing ‒ like a very Einstein I have got the mathematical formula of the whole affair (unintelligible as in his case to anybody but myself) and am working it out figure by figure.' ‒ Works Of Sri Aurobindo, CWSA, Letters On Himself And The Ashram, Remarks On The Current State Of The Sadhana, 1931-1947
Few in the Integral Yoga community have demonstrated any interest in this 'mathematical formula' that Sri Aurobindo was working out, which the Mother admitted in 1965, was still yet to be fully worked out.1
I once brought up the matter of this mathematical formula, and the significance of numbers in regards to the Supramental Action on Earth in an online group of people who considered themselves authorities on matters of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother's yoga (Auroconf), and they proceeded to make fun of Ms. Norelli-Bachelet's use of number, especially the number 9, in her cosmology. It became clear that they abhorred the idea that Ms. Patrizia Norelli-Bachelet had carried the Supramental Realization further than Sri Aurobindo and the Mother, and the idea that there is actually a precise mathematical formula that is in essence a Supramental Law or established Matrix, barring or allowing comprehension of the Supramental Action or Consciousness-Force on the Earth. Such a reaction is understandable, but such ridicule and incredulity doesn't change the actual looming necessity to comprehend how number and math IS essential to the unfolding or expansion of the Supramental Seed. The ridicule emphasizes or underscores the difficulties encountered when new knowledge is introduced to an inflexible MIND SET. ...
