The Conjunction

“In the beginning God created one world (unus mundus).  This he divided into two – heaven and earth.  Beneath this spiritual and corporeal binarius lieth hid a third thing, which is the bond of holy matrimony.  This same is the medium enduring until now in all things, partaking of both their extremes, without which it cannot be at all, nor they without this medium be what they are, one thing out of three.  The division into two was necessary in order to bring the “one” world out of the state of potentiality into reality.  Reality consists of a multiplicity of things.  But one is not a number; the first number is two, and with it multiplicity and reality begin”
