After the Tricycle, It Comes Always the Bicycle
Lao Tzu says the first manifestation beyond the "Gate to the Secret of All Life" is a duality consisting of "The Unnamed" and "The Named".
A balanced duality he called "The Cosmic Mystery".
For the sake of this flight of madness, I will call it "The Primordial Bicycle".
Now, Lao Tzu also says that the awareness of a manifestation brings about the manifestation of its opposite.
A second bicycle, alongside the first, comes into being.
But the Tao demands balance. A middle way to harmonize this struggle.
And a third bicycle comes into being, balanced atop the first pair.
Thesis, Antithesis, Synthesis.
The First Tricycle.
It's existence brought about by a natural process initiated by the Primordial Bicycle, the Cosmic Mystery..
But look! We now have a bicycle unpaired! This cannot last! We need another bicycle!
After all, Weishaupt himself said, "After the tricycle, it comes always the bicycle."
But a single bicycle will not be enough. Where shall it rest? Surely it can't just float there on its own. Surely the bicycle above can't come into existence without some bicycles below. It just wouldn't be balanced.
So a new bicycle tricycle appears alongside the first.
And we now have another duality of equals.
A duality which requires reconciliation.
Which gives us the Second Tricycle.
But once again, we have an unpaired bicycle.
As Weishaupt said, "After the tricycle, it comes always the bicycle."
And a new round of thesis, antithesis, synthesis ensues.
But we can't stop here! Weishaupt said, "After the tricycle, comes always the bicycle."
Say it with me now... "After the tricycle, it comes always the bicycle".
If you've been counting bicycles you'll have noticed that our total now stands at exactly 63.
So why not heed the Law of Fives while throwing a bone to the I Ching and just put an end to this monkey business once and for all?
Weishaupt was a notorious liar anyways. Maybe what he really meant was, "After the tricycle, it comes always the bicycle (unless you know the secret)."
What? Technically that's only 63 and a half bicycles, you say?
I say not.
But Lao Tzu say I can't say why.
