The atom is composed of negatively (-01) charged electrons, which orbit around a nucleus of neutrally (0) charged neutrons and positively (+1) charged protons. This balance in charges makes the atom stable and creative. When viewed in Vedic terms, the atom’s three attributes can be seen as representing the three different poles of magnetic energy that appear at the beginning of creation. The positively charged proton would represent the positively charged Sattwic Guna, or magnetic pole of spiritual consciousness, otherwise known as Buddhi. The neutrally charged neutron would represent the similarly charged Rajasic Guna, or pole of Prana – life energy. Lastly, the negatively charged electron would represent the negatively charged Tamasic Guna, or magnetic pole of Manas – the mind, sense, and body consciousness.

According to the Vedic idea of creation, the three electric poles of creation came into being after the conscious soul, or Purusha, contacted the vehicle of creation called Maya, or delusion (Which was comprised of a creative vibration called Aum, and the dimensions, time, Kala, and space, Desa, as well as the primary idea of the atom, called Anu.)

When this connection between consciousness and creation took place, magnetism was born – hence the three electric poles. If, by observing Vedic science, the contents of the atom were related to the structure of universal interactive creation, then the positive pole, or each proton in the case of the atom, would also be the origin of the intelligent organs of the senses, the Jnanendriyas – comprising sound, touch, sight, taste, and smell. The neutrons would be the energetic organs of action, the Karmendriyas - comprising the feet, or motion, the hands, or manual skill, speech, excretion, and reproduction. The electrons would be the negative objects of the senses, the Tanmatras – comprising that which is heard, felt, seen, tasted, and smelt, which are the physical elements in physical creation. According to Indian science, the very existence of the three poles creates duality by which we are all subject, and magnetic electricity, though which we are all functional.

The atom, however, is deeper that the three poles, or protons, neutrons, and electrons. The atom, as we know it, is composed of three elements – each of which is a level in the atoms creation. The proton is the finest level or element of the atom when associated with the Sattwic electric current. This particularly fine current is associated with pure thought and the Vedic Swarga, or level of creation, of Swarloka. This level, or world, consists of only very fine magnetic currents and ideas. The proton also relates to the causal body, the Sattwa Buddhi, of man; his body of ideas and intelligence. The neutron is compared to Prana or neutral life energy, which exists at the second level of creation, known as Bhuvarloka, which consists of electricity, or energy. This is also related to the astral body, the second body of man. Electrons are associated with the Tamasic negative current of creation, which creates the physical layer of creation – the five elements, as we know them. The electron also relates to the Swarga of Bhuloka, the world perceptible to all beings.

So, the atom holds three levels of creation within it. The electron level is the physical, the neutron level is the astral, Pranic, level, and the proton level is the causal level of thought and intelligence; but there are four more levels to the atom. The neutron and proton level are characterised in the Swargas, or stages of creation, as vacuums, because of the lack of physical substance in them, and because the pull in these worlds of the Sattwic magnetic current is so strong, which draws the consciousness back to God, or Truth.

The proton level is such a vacuum, that only magnetic currents can exist in it. The level beyond the vacuum of the proton is called the Chitta; this is the point where Purusha, or the soul, first met Maya, or creation. At this point, nothing is created – not even magnetism. There are no currents; therefore, there are no protons, neutrons, or electrons here. This translates as there being no senses, bodies, energies, elements, or thought here.

The only thing that resides here is the soul, Purusha, and the cosmic notion of delusion, Maya. This concept of delusion consists of the creative vibration of Aum, time, and space. Hence, it is invisible and unidentifiable to the human eye, or manufactured instruments. In the Swargas, it is known as Maharloka or Dasamadwara, the doorway between the lower (atomic) and higher (spiritual) worlds, or the doorway between creation, and the creative force.

In this respect, at the centre of the atom lies time and space in conceptual form, meaning that within the atom, time and space only exist as ideas, but not as perceptible dimensions. The other important structure in the atom is the vibration of Aum. It is this vibration, which creates time, space, and the atom. Vibration is the first expression of the creative force, which in Vedic terms is Parambrahma, or God. Looking at a vibrational current, we see peaks and troughs. It is the measure in-between the passing of these points that is the basis of time, and the measure of the areas in-between these points that is the base of space; and it is each individual point along this chrono-spatial vibration that becomes home to an atom. Thus, this creative intelligent vibration, Aum, forms the basic structure of creation.

However, there are three more components to the atom. As mentioned, it is the reflection of the soul, or Purusha, upon Maya that creates the heart centre or Chitta, which goes on to create magnetic electricity. The level above the “door” is called Janaloka in the Swarga system. It is the level, which is accommodated by pure souls, which are conscious of their separation from the still higher levels. So, beyond the vibration of Aum is Purusha, or soul consciousness. A level above this is Tapaloka; this is the level of Purushottama, which is pure Spirit in its undivided Self. This means that beyond the soul central to the atom is the vast ocean of Spirit. Finally, there is a realm called Satyaloka, which, in accordance with Vedic scriptures, is the realm of God, from which both the idea of creation and the soul emerge – meeting to cause magnetic electricity, and thus the atom.

Dissecting the atom in this manner, first into magnetic poles of consciousness, then into dimensional ideas, then into spirit, and eventually back to God, means that, according to Vedic science, everything we perceive is nought but God. What I wish to highlight here is simply that there is a revolutionary, or orbital, process, which the electrons (the lesser entities) is revolving around the nucleus of protons (the higher entities) in the atomic structure.


Each one of these atoms – clouds of electrons revolving around nucleuses of protons and neutrons takes on different forms according to the number of each component. In the human body, there are an equal number of protons and electrons in each atom, though the actual number varies, as does the number of neutrons in each atom. The variance indicates different elements, which make up the physical world.

Along the spine in man, there are seven energy centres, or Chakras. Each one is responsible for enlivening the human vehicle in a different way. I suggest that groups of atoms orbit around the six lower Chakras - take on their characteristics, and then form into parts of the human body.

For example, atoms that revolve around the Muladhara Chakra take on its several attributes. This would mean that the characteristics, which govern this centre, influence the intelligence in the atom to develop into an appropriate structure. Survival dominates this energy centre, as does the primary sense - the sense of smell and the nose. So, the atoms would form the intricate nasal structure and the olfactory nerves. The colour red and brown dwells in this centre; atoms orbiting this centre would thus form all such colourings in the body. The sound of “Lam” on the human vocal scale originates here, so, these atoms would develop that particular vocal chord. Muscle, flesh, and water also originate here, so atoms orbiting here would also form into these tissues and elements. In this way, throughout the human body, the intelligence in atoms combines with the intelligence in the energy centres – which are just expressions of the soul within the body, to create the human body.

Thus, the seven Chakras are being orbited by atoms creating the heart at the heart centre, the mouth, throat etc at the throat centre and so on. As atoms get charged by the Chakras potency they leave orbit to manifest as a body part, while new atoms enter the space in the orbit, ready to replace the old ones at regular intervals, i.e. skin, bile, muscle tissue etc.

This revolution of atoms around Chakras would be the second level of universal revolution.


The following extract is taken from “Autobiography of a yogi”- by Paramahansa Yogananda (Chapter 26 – The science of Kriya Yoga) “The Kriya yogi mentally directs his life energy to revolve, upward and downward, around the six spinal centres (medullary, cervical, dorsal, lumber, sacral, and coccygeal plexuses.) The astral system of a human being, with six (twelve by polarity) inner constellations revolving around the sun of the omniscient spiritual eye…”

The reference here to the spiritual science of Kriya Yoga is notable because it refers to what I suggest is the third level of universal revolution – Life energy orbiting around the inner solar system of the Chakras. In this section of the book, it is stated that the through the practise of Kriya Yoga, the yogi rotates his or her consciousness, life force, or Prana, around the Ajna Chakra, or third eye; much in the same way as the planets revolve around the sun, or for that matter, atoms revolve around Chakras, or electrons around protons.


As with the three previous levels, there is one central point, around which all other points revolve, or orbit. This theory also applies to humans on earth. Thought all are equal in essence, particular types of people, like true spiritual leaders, masters, saints, gurus, great intellectual minds, philosophers etc. occupy positions in society of great significance. Both government and laymen alike try to revolve their laws and lives around the teachings and findings of these inspired ones. The ancient scriptures of India – the Vedas, the Christian bible, the holy Qu’ran, the Buddhist doctrines, Einstein’s discoveries etc are just a few of the expressions of exalted men that have shaped our world.

These people make the level of society around which we revolve. They shape our minds, inspire us, and give us standards to strive for. They are our Ajna Chakra in terms of energy centres, and our protons, in terms of atoms. In the sense of Chakras, these people make up the third eye, intuitional centre of humankind. Continuing to view humankind in this comparative manner, then at the throat energy centre – the Visshuddha Chakra of humankind would be people who occupy positions of self-expression (because expression is the nature that this energy centre governs)  – artists – painters, musicians, sculptors, designers etc; and writers, poets etc. These people give the world its voice and colour, but still revolve around the spiritual eye of humankind.

Also orbiting around the third eye centre of Humanity are those who represent the heart centre, the Anahata Chakra – people who work for others selflessly in the community. These could be charity workers, carers, social workers, nurses, doctors, and teachers – anyone who contributes lovingly to society via their chosen profession.

Below them, in terms of the Chakras, are those who represent the Manipura Chakra – the centre of control and worldly power. These people make up our kings, queens, government leaders, managers, and business tycoons – any person in a position of worldly power and control. Below them, are those who manifest the qualities of the Svadhisthana Chakra, those who are focussed on the welfare and the continuation of their family gene; and do not see further that their relations, and friends. Finally, people who are preoccupied with survival on a gross physical level, and are predominantly concerned with war, sex, and their own family unit represent the Muladhara Chakra in society.

In society, all these levels are necessary to make the world function as it does, but the topmost layer of great thinkers and true spiritual leaders are whose ideals, findings, and discoveries that we, as a world, revolve or orbit around.       


This level of revolution is the one that we are probably most accustomed to. Our earth, with its moon, and all of us, orbits the sun in a yearly, 12 monthly, 365/6-day cycle.  


As well as our earth revolving around the sun, the sun also revolves around a point. This point is a larger star – unnamed by western astronomers, but it can be likened to a supersun. The time taken for our sun to revolve around this star is 24,000 earth years. 12,000 of which are known as the descending arc, and the same number as the ascending arc. As we (our solar system) revolve around the supersun, our intelligence increases and decreases in accordance to our position relative to another point – the grand centre or creative and mental power - Brahma.


The supersun, around which our solar system revolves in 24,000 years, orbits around the centre of the universe – Brahma. The time taken for the supersun to revolve around this grand centre is 240,000 earth years. The relevance that this centre has on our intelligence is unequivocal. As we revolve around the supersun, which is revolving around the grand centre, we periodically get nearer to the side of the supersun closest to Brahma – and as we do our intelligences increases, and likewise, as we move away our intelligence decreases.


Revolution appears to be the format chosen by God to energise and continue creation. All seven levels mentioned above follow the same format. There is a centre of creative, energetic, and intelligent power, around which all lesser powers revolve and seem to acquire energy from. Whether that is the sun, the third eye, or protons, the idea remains the same – the universe dances around a single point on seven different stages.
