A refurbishment that renews a topical perspective in the emblematic figure: the one that from an X-shaped arrangement, where arms and legs can rotate 60°, but that no one would adopt as a normal pose either standing or lying on the back, it leads back to a Y arrangement, the most practicable of a man with his arms and legs outstretched, but the legs together.
Nonetheless, since this last one also is not very probable, what we would like to conceive as actual and universal, as well as expressive by the same spiritual perspective, is the same Y position held by the man standing, hence examine that, as it makes the feet's basal function.Can we distinguish the lying position as passive from the standing one as active? Both are important and significant, but with due distinctions.
The lying man is oriented to rest, or to the dream and to the parallel dimension; although for this he would not assume special positions of the limbs. The man standing with his arms raised, whether he manifests exultation or at the same time prayer or thanksgiving, or art and dance, or who dives or swims, he affirms himself, and it is there that one can note the maximum amplitude of the human figure.
The space of the material plan is defined by the four cardinal directions, as by the four Elements of tradition; here is the square, with double symmetry. All the points of its perimeter are at different distances (equal in groups of 8) with respect to the center, which in the inscribed human figure corresponds to the reproductive apparatus and to the 1st basic chakra, which in turn projects a square shape to the occult view.
