The strange word formulation, above, was uttered by George Gurdjieff, but it could have been said by Emanuel Swedenborg, as well. Both men were concerned about humankind’s inner (or spiritual) development.
Humans, if they ignore their spiritual responsibilities, will literally give off a foul-smelling sphere in the “other” (or spiritual) world.
This “smelly sphere” represents the inner quality of one’s heart and mind, which becomes organized into a real body for the soul. (The human form is ultimately the reflection and organization of all one’s loves.) Gurdjieff called the rarefied (magnetic) blood, which constructs this higher bio-organization (like the Astral or preliminary spiritual body), Hanbledzoin, while Swedenborg called it the Animal Spirit.
During the process of genuine spiritual transformation and regeneration, it is this inner blood that gets purified (Divine Love & Wisdom, n 423). This higher blood, in turn, purifies the lower, corporeal (red) blood. During the organic processes of life this higher, magnetic blood, gives off and eliminates its dregs through perspiration and is connected to our sweat glands.
I predict that someday we will develop the technology to measure this bio-cleansing process and, from subtle odors released, determine whether we are spiritually evolving or just fooling others through pretense.
Now that would be a great improvement over the current lie detector!
