This diagram shows something of the “lineage” from which Mario drew aspects of his teachings. He was careful to source everything (with the exception of a few words like “karma”) to Western sources.
The numen has a compulsive element to it. Mario did not go to a psychiatrist and take a pill to deal with the experience. With a great deal of courage, he embraced it and was propelled into a tumultuous period of his life where he began to construct a framework in the physical world to help others to embrace their own experience of the numinous.
