Physics recognizes four primary forces: Gravity, Electro-magnetism, and the Strong & Weak Nuclear Forces.
In occult theory, East and West, and in classical natural philosophy, there are the four elements: Earth, Fire, Air, and Water. In magickal practices, the four elements are used as "forces" and often imbued with consciousness as when they are identified with particular archangels. Might these really the same as the four forces of physics?
In occult theory, East and West, Spirit is the fifth element from which the other four are derived. If, as some of us speculate, Consciousness is the primary force, then are Spirit and Consciousness one and the same?
If Consciousness is the primary Force from which the other four Forces are derived, is this primary consciousness or Spirit the same as the Creator, we otherwise call God?
