Instant recap: Deuce accepted the otherness of Unam, who told him about the glory of the supernal realm. He said that the gateway to it is death, but Deuce rejected this, convinced that death is the end. They agreed to an experiment in which Unam would try to share his divine beatitude with Deuce. The outcome was total ecstatic communion, producing a miraculous substance which OM-God named loosh.
5. He and She ~ The Birth of Gender
OM-God inhaled Unam and Deuce along with the loosh they had made, thus bringing Round Six to a dramatic conclusion. He breathed out a new universe for Round Seven, and it recapitulated all the events of its predecessors, up through the scene of its God dwelling alone in the Abyss. Then for the first time OM-God himself repeated one of his actions and entered the cosmos, whereupon he condensed again into Unam, who had only a vague inkling that it was his second time around. Everything repeated through the communion of Unam and Deuce, and they experienced themselves merging totally into the ecstatic Oneness of OM-God, where their separate identities were utterly lost just like at the end of the round. This time the new round continued, and the Oneness fissioned again into twoness ~ but the dyadic beings who pulled apart and faced each other were not the same.
Unam had been the yang initiator of the act of union, and now his ground of being shifted tectonically to the full embodiment of that principle: he was now male, the first such entity in the universe. Attaching the masculine pronoun to the characters in the story thus far was strictly a default usage, for none of them were literally male, especially not OM-God ‘him’self, who transcends all opposites.
The transmutation of Unam was only possible because it came in sync with an equal metamorphosis of Deuce in the opposite direction to become female. And there she stood, the radiant archedox of beauty and femininity, the motherlode-stone of yin who draws to herself the compass-needles of all male sentient beings.
Although they achieved sexual differentiation, Unam and Deuce were still not man and woman, for these honorifics are reserved for beings who have incarnated in hard matter (the third density, as it’s known in some circles), a much later stage of the ÜberStory, as told here: How the Gods Came Down.
The new identities of Unam and Deuce can best be described as God and Goddess ~ for this was also the genesis of these deities, destined to beget the star-spangled cosmos and its myriad of sentient beings. And there they were in what could well be called the seventh heaven: God the Father and God the Mother, while overshining them was OM-God, the supreme embodiment of Spirit. When asked to explain the Holy Trinity, the best Saint Patrick could do was to pluck a shamrock. I hope some readers find my detailed rendering more informative and illuminating!
