27 November 2005:

Wouldn't you know it! After constructing the most recent version of the Integral Metaphysics system and adding links from the chakra and Sant Mat pages I was lying in bed in the morning thinking over things, and had a realisation that the Sant Mat cosmology pertains to what I now call the Emanational ontocline, rather than the Concentric one. This allows a unification of Sant Mat and Kashmir Shaivite cosmologies, but means that once again links have to be changed (fortunately not too hard with global search and replace) and pages have to modified. The important thing is that the Integral Metaphysics system is becoming more authentic with each insight and development.

Added Emanational levels, with some material from former Concentric levels page; Concentric levels has been rewritten.

26 November 2005:

Added Higher and Lower Chakras and the very speculative Archetypal Chakras (metaphysical musings). Also (while we're on the subject) fixed up the Transpersonal Chakras page.

Added Insight / Enlightenment levels, but probably need to add more links and stuff.
