The World Egg symbolizes a latency state in the development of the Cosmos. It is often represented by a sphere for it spreads equally out in all directions from an original point symbolizing the Centre or Unity.
When the Cosmic Egg has completely hatched, the being feels lost in the middle of the manifested world, the Centre of which he cannot rediscover. He can only attain the Unity while finding a way going off beaten tracks. Indeed, Unity cannot be attained by reason alone, which consists in breaking down all its constituent elements in order to be able to study them separately. The Unity in its simplicity never lets itself be broken down. The separation of the constituent elements of a whole is an improper simplification. The whole is above all characterized by complex interactions between its so called constituent elements. The deep interdependencies among the constituent elements and the surrounding environment are what maintains the cohesion of the Cosmos and explains why its etymology is synonymous with order.
Unity can only be reached by following intellectual Intuition, beyond the sensitive intuition. It can only be reached through the direct and immediate Knowledge of the immutable principles, beyond the indirect and discursive knowledge of changeable elements that the reason vainly strives to master. To see everything in the indistinct state of the principial Unity is true Intelligence.
The human reflection is only a pale reflection of the supra-human Intellect. It is made in the image of the lunar light that does nothing but reflect the solar Light. The lunar light is an indirect and cold light without any possible comparison with the direct and warm sun Light.
The access to the Centre, Unity and Knowledge arises at the time of an illumination caused by a spark of the intelligible Light. In reality, the being does not attain the Centre, Unity and Knowledge; he becomes the Centre, Unity and Knowledge. The simple man no longer knows tensions or oppositions proper to the world of duality. He stands in the Centre where everything is unified, where he sees everything through the principial Unity. Simplicity means Unity.
