The Way of Nature

The Way of Nature

The Elements or Roots!

Empedocles did not call his four principles “elements” (stoikheia), but “roots” (rhizai) or even (Rhizotomoi) or herbal magicians, and especially because he applied hi “root-clumps” (rhizômata). This is significant because Empedocles belonged to the tradition of Root Cutters’ theory to develop the doctrine of occult sympathies in plants.
 (Kingsley, Peter, Ancient Philosophy, Mystery and Magic: Empedocles and Pythagorean Tradition, Oxford University Press, 1995)

The Canopic Spheres carry plant memory seeking its source. They condense photosynthesis of light. They celebrate nature’s ways through growth and decay.
