Five Units – The origin of the Universe
Five Units Kim Moc Thuy Hoa Tho (called in Troi name as Kim Mok Txuy Xoa Txo) are the first 5 units/elements created the Universe and Men. These are relative concepts, not concrete materials. Kim is not metal, Moc is not wood etc. The Five Units is truth, not superstition as many people are thinking. We need to understand them correctly.
1.1.1 Five Units is Troi
The combination of Five Units is Troi, the Supreme Power of the Universe. Troi created the Universe and Men (including Astral Men and Rough Men). Troi is also the higher hierarchical authority of the Emperor Council (headed by the Emperors) and Buddha and God Council (once led by LANTIG (Shakyamuni) Buddha, and now Van Van Quang Buddha). (see section 1.3.1 and 1.3.2).
1.1.2 Living Nature character of the Five Units
Living Nature means having feature of life in it. The Five Units having Living Nature is shown in the living of creatures inside them including human, animals and plants.
a) Investigation of the Living Nature of Five Units
Some models were created for observation of Living Nature of Five Units Kim, Mok, Txuy, Xoa, Txo.
Concretely as follows: for observing Txuy, the author put on a table a glass of clean fresh natural water, and then prayed for appearance of water man, water animals and water plants for observation by some people who have their divine eye activated. It was seen with the picture as shown in Figure 1.1. There are water human (seen as tall ancient man, and also mermaids), water animals (seen as monkey without tail, and bull frogs), water plants (including tall trees with needle leaves, fern, growing in fen, seaweed growing in water, and green moss on mountain). All of these were revealed on a background of sea blue colour. It apparently showed that water has feature of life, i.e. it is living water. It means that Txuy is not natural water H2O as we think, but living water. So Txuy is Living Water.
Figure 1.1– Living water (drawing of Prof Dich – Van Van Quang Buddha)
Similar investigations were carried out for Kim (investigation of five-colour Khi pillar), Mok (investigation of a piece of wood), Xoa (investigation of a burning candle) and Txo (a piece of natural earth), the author realized that they have the same living nature as Txuy . It means that there are Khi men, Khi animals, Khi plants, wood men, wood animals, wood plants, fire men, fire animals, fire plants etc. That leads to the definition as to Five Units as below.
b) Definition of Five Units
Investigations of the Five Units have shown that each Unit has its own men, animals and plants. So we have the definition of Five Units as follows:
These are fundamental concepts that we need to comprehend. It must not be defined Kim as mental, Mok as wood, Txuy as water, Xoa as fire, Txo as earth as popularly appeared in many literatures and writings. Such writings showed a lack of correct understanding of the true nature of the Five Units.
As the Five Units have living nature, we must respect them and must not waste or pollute the Five Units. Dumping wastes into a river to kill water human, water animals, water plants, earth human, earth animals and earth plants, wood human, wood animals and wood plants etc. is an act of genocide! It’s a serious crime. So for those factory owners who dumped wastes into rivers, don’t simply think that it brings more profit. You have committed genocide crime and will be punished, if not in this incarnation, will be in another future one. Certainly you cannot escape this punishment, because the Law of Cause and Effect is impartial.
Figure 1.2– Inter-increasing and inter-restraining interaction of Five Units
(this drawing is re-drawn based on the same drawing of Prof. Dich-Van Van Quang Buddha)
The Five Units have living nature so does man, because man has life. Man has the ability to mobilize Five Units to have immense power. It means that the use of Five Units is of extreme importance to the living of mankind.
1.1.3 Inter-increasing and inter-restraining interaction of the Five Units
The Five Units have inter-increasing and inter-restraining characters. In particularly:
Inter-increasing: Kim increases Txuy, Txuy increases Mok, Mok increases Xoa, Xoa increases Txo, Txo increases Kim.
Inter-restraining: Kim restrains Mok, Mok restrains Txo, Txo restrains Txuy, Txuy restrains Xoa, Xoa restrains Kim.
The inter-increasing and inter-restraining interactions of the Five Units are illustrated in Figure 1.2.
An interesting feature of Five Units interactions is the inter-increase and inter-restrain interactions never go extreme, as shown in Figure 1.3.
Figure 1.3– Balance of inter-increase and inter-restrain interaction of Five Units (drawing of Prof Dich-Van Van Quang Buddha)
Figure 1.3 shows that the Five Units increase in chain (Kim increases Txuy, so Txuy increases Mok, so Mok increases Xoa, so Xoa increases Txo, so Txo increases Kim) and restrain in pair. Why is so? Because if they restrain in chain in the same way they do with increase, the Universe will be destroyed. So increase is in chain but restrain must be in pair. On that basis, the Universe develops in Prosperous balance but not in Extreme (not in Tuong). That is the interesting feature of Five Units.
Figure 1.3 shows that Kim increases Txuy and makes Txuy prosperous. Prosperous Txuy increases Mok and makes Mok become prosperous and prosperous, so called Tuong state, i.e much more than prosperous state. It means Mok is in extreme state. Then there Kim to restrain Mok and bring Mok back to prosperous state and Tuong state is resolved. Prosperous Mok increases Xoa so makes Xoa Prosperous Prosperous meaning Tuong, i.e being in extreme state. Xoa meets Txuy and is restrained by Txuy so Xoa does not become extreme, remain in presperous. In turn, Prosperous Xoa increases Txo to make Txo Tuong, i.e extreme, there comes Prosperous Mok to restrain Txo to make Txo not to be extreme, but remain in prosperous state. Then Prosperous Txo increases Kim to make Kim Tuong, i.e., extreme. Kim Tuong will be restrained by Prosperous Xoa so Kim Tuong is resolved and remains in Prosperous. Then Prosperous Kim increases Txuy to make Thuy Tuong, extreme. There comes again Txo to restrain Txuy and make Txuy remain in Prosperous. It’s apparent that the inter-increasing – inter-retraining character of Five Units as illustrated in Figure 1.3 keeps the Five Units always in Prosperous but not in extreme state (i.e. not become Tuong, extreme, which can lead to explosion or destruction). That is the interesting character of the Five Units.
Based on the above, we know that the Universe is always sustainable as it never becomes extreme. In other words, thanks to the inter-increasing – inter-restraining interaction of the Five Units, Troi and the Universe are always sustainable, everlasting and never lost; only certain things changed.
"There are physical and invisible (subtle) spaces co-existing in this universe"
"There are Rough men living in the physical space and Astral men living in the invisible space. The Astral men are a lot more capable than the Rough men"
"The big mistake of mankind (Rough men) so far is we are not willing to cooperate with the invisible space"
