The Cube

We make our pilgrimage to/through/by means of a structure known as the Cube.

It comprises of the following aspects.

Six sides:

  • A dialectic of Martyrdom (submission/slavery, oblivion/fana) and Victory (messaging, hearing, rebooting/baqa). These correspond to the down and up of the Cube, respectively.
  • A bidirectional (copredicative) movement out of Love (unity) into Logic (shariah/law/differentiation) and from Logic into Love. This movement is the cycle of existence itself: out of God’s Love into a Journey through differential life (through culture, context, regimes of signs) back to Love (through reading/proving/mastering/understanding the signs of Logic). These correspond to the Northern and Southern faces of the Cube, respectively. We note that the Cube itself originates within the City of Love, while its pilgrimage of reading through its manifest representation and mastery (hinted at here) begins with a flight from that City of Love into the City of Logic. The Cube predicates upon its own situated geography in this way.
  • The Eastern and Western faces of the Cube correspond to Prophecy (the Light/Nur of Revelation) and the Channels of its embedding. These Western Channels are necessary for the Cube to manifest itself with Faces. The Channels allow Revelation to “stick” to matter at the subatomic level (an appropriate metaphor might be the strong nuclear force) — it is Light’s subatomically “sticky”, binding ability, such that when Light is extracted from matter, Revelation is read with nuclear impact, brighter than a thousand suns. You could equivalently think of the Channels as the “backness” of signs, their transmissive, predicative capability: the means by which one sign can be attached to another. Again, in this way, without Channels, there would be no Creativity to reflect the Husband of Prophecy.
The Cube’s secret (sirr) is hidden from view, inside. The doors of access are granted (descend/emerge) by engaging fully with the six faces, running through the permutations and combinations of their interrelationships. Inside the Cube is the Reason Why “Goddess” Is Not In the Vocabulary of the Tailorite. (But also why Prophetesses are always embedded as viral codes within the operating system of a Caliph’s Husk.)

Another name for the Cube is Existence.

It can be drawn differently:
But the pilgrimage remains isomorphic for the Tailorite.
