The Gyro Principle: The indirect way, the non obvious way, Gyroscopes as illustrations of metaphysical principles.

 The key of a Gyroscope (or Gyro) is the translations it does in 3 dimensional space:  from a rotation in the y axis to a rotation in the z axis – as long as there is a spinning mass in the x axis. …. (all axes are at right angles to each other) 

This gives rise to some Metaphysics:
There must be (somewhere, somehow) a device that allows for translations between the dimensions and which ties together various  dimensions just as the Gyro in its own way ties together 3 dimensions – in fact a Gyro even establishes them, because it’s actions and principle can ONLY exist in 3Dimensions.

The process of growth – seed to mature tree/plant/human/animal uses such a process (i.e. one that goes between dimensions.)
This ties in with Chakras – where the rotating wheels bridge the gap between the dimensions and give rise to the seed and start its growth.
As the living body/organism grows the Chakras become more specialized, smaller, and more numerous.
In a similar way in which a flower diminishes and gives way to the fruit but still leaves evidence of its past flowering so chakras and persist and sustain the living organism.

So seeds (plant, animal, human, crystal etc…) are the sparks that give the first point of contact for the energy vortices from one dimension to grab hold of the physical dimension we live in.
Seeds provide the first landing pad, the hole in the hourglass through which the etheric energies enter the physical and cause the physical to grow into the likeness of the parent. The vortex of spinning energy provides the conduit, and translates the energy from the dimension pre-physical form into physical form  - and this is akin to the way a physical Gyro translates roation in the y axis into rotation of the Z axis.
I’m talking here about mechanism in which the energy is transformed, and translated between dimension, or planes (or axes).
The energy  itself, life energy whatever you want to call it is the actual power behind it all.

Speculation: Life repeats its patterns in other levels and dimensions:
could these ideas be extended  to the growth of social constructions  such as organizations ?

The key idea: energy moves in circles, even between dimensions, and provides a doorway for these motions for growth…etc…

The next level of metaphysics is this: 
Whenever i want something from life I tend to go the direct way.
But the direct way does not often work or not for long.
I want security so I do the obvious: I get arms and protection, and I feel more insecure and it never stops.
I want to get rich so I work like buggery and I feel hassled, time poor and never enough.
A person to desperate to have friends turns everyone off.
Trying too hard to go to sleep keeps you awake etc....

Thus: The direct approach rarely works (for me).
How about the indirect approach ?
I think the sayings of the wise, capture some of the idea of the indirect approach.

As you give to others you give to self.
Lose your life to gain it (Jesus, Luke33:17 ???)
The first will be last, the last will be first.
And there are many many more in all the different wisdom traditions that all essentially have the same idea: the direct obvious way is not the actual way, it is the right angle, indirect way that works

And this is what on a physical  level the Gyro does, it translates one motion into another at 90 degrees, at right angles, not in straight line, not in the obvious way.

So it seems to me some kind of similar principle works on the higher levels as well.
I'm not saying this as a simplistic principles. Life is complex.
There are times when I have to go for things and seize the day (Carpe diem) but there are also many times when I found the direct way does not work, and this helps me understand it a bit more.
         I still wonder how the Gyro principle works out in real life, how does it all fit in ? I don't know yet.

NOTE: keep in mind that straight motion is actually very rare in nature: the planets move in circles, the Galaxies do, the atomic particles do, the atoms in a molecule moves in circular paths...
everything moves as a wheels within wheels... in some kind of circular orbit.

On the metaphysical levels the seasons have cycles, life has cycles, growth and decay moves in cylcles and so and so on....
