The Principles of Creation


SUMMUM: Sealed Except to the Open Mind
Chapter 3

"The Principles of knowing Creation are seven; those who know these possess the Magic Key to whose touch all locked doors open to Creation."

— Summum


The seven great Summum Principles upon which the Summum Philosophy is based are as follows:

i. The Principle of Psychokinesis

"SUMMUM is MIND; the universe is a mental creation." — Summum

ii. The Principle of Correspondence

"As above, so below; as below, so above." — Summum

iii. The Principle of Vibration

"Nothing rests; everything moves; everything vibrates." — Summum

iv. The Principle of Opposition

"Everything is dual; everything has an opposing point; everything has its pair of opposites; like and unlike are the same; opposites are identical in nature, but different in degree; extremes bond; all truths are but partial truths; all paradoxes may be reconciled." — Summum

v. The Principle of Rhythm

"Everything flows out and in; everything has its season; all things rise and fall; the pendulum swing expresses itself in everything; the measure of the swing to the right is the measure of the swing to the left; rhythm compensates." — Summum

vi. The Principle of Cause and Effect

"Every cause has its effect; every effect has its cause; everything happens according to Law; Chance is just a name for Law not recognized; there are many fields of causation, but nothing escapes the Law of Destiny." — Summum

vii. The Principle of Gender

"Gender is in everything; everything has its masculine and feminine principles; Gender manifests on all levels." — Summum

These principles underlie all phenomena and can be found at work where ever you look. They form the basis for all religions, all philosophies, and all science. They have been alluded to, referred to, and discussed in various ways throughout history. The principles, along with the Grand Principle of Creation from which they emanate, are discussed and explained at length in the Summum philosophy book, SUMMUM: Sealed Except to the Open Mind.
