All truth passes through three stages:
First it is ridiculed.
Second, it is violently opposed.
Third, it is accepted as self-evident!
Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860)
things are happening in the world. We might call this moment a time
of convergence – i.e., when events and the people through whom they
unfold are brought identifiably within the scope of a supramental
framework in the form of what is called a model of the universe.
But this would not be discernible if we did not have certain tools
of Knowledge which allow us to bring the multiple dimensions of our
world of time and space into focus in this model.
Chronicles and Updates have proven, the Mother’s original design and
plan of the Inner Chamber conform to Sri Aurobindo’s description of
the contents of the soul, - the Chamber ‘closed
and mute’ of his epic poem, Savitri. The Mother simply
penetrated that sacred precinct to provide humanity with this
special and unique model of the Cosmic Truth. For it is in
the inner depths, the cave in the heart where Guha stands that the

The Mother defined that number-power to the author/convenor as
‘creation in matter’. And it is with this clue which she provided in
1971, the clue that revealed the more arcane mysteries of the 9,
that the door was unlocked and one could enter the chamber of the
The Mother bequeathed to humanity a Soul in the form of an
architectural masterpiece. But as we know, the building she set on
its way in Auroville did not live up to this sublime truth. In every
way it was disfigured. Thus today in place of this greatest of all
architectural revelations, we have a faithful reproduction of the
ego and not the soul.
Energies continue to be poured into that endeavour by the community
and its faithful followers. One wonders what purpose is served. How
and why is it that a choice can be made consciously to put
this shadow in place of the Mother’s revelation? Further, the
question that arises is why this aberration came to pass at all? How
is it that the Mother did not draw to her side the genial architect,
Christopher Alexander, for example, instead of what we have had to
