The eye can't/won't see what the mind won't ntegrate. (E=MC2 = MC2=E - so on. An interesting magical point, really.) And, I also happen to think cosmology/cosmological symbols are a very important/sacred field to study. I've been especially interested in this area of research.
Drawing on/using symbol, of course, nicely ties into the art of practising alchemy. The idea that we become/produce the energy to do the alchemy/transmutation. It's beautiful really, quite fascinating. For this reason, as interested as I am in theosophy and the philosophical arts. I enjoy the
ride, yes -Nature is always best/most interesting, yes -However as I see it, ritual and Magick are the natural result of a well-contemplated mind. "I look out my window and all I see is ritual. The stars. The sky. The ground. It all looks like ritual to me." And so, in my opinion, there is an acceptable physical/tactile exploration of the philosophical
enlightenments -especially since co-ordinating the body/mind/spirit/soul efforts and urges is supposed to be part of the story -and, properly so.

It amazes me that there are not more people who see the fundamental interrelationship of all of these fields, and even more so that hardly anyone really gets into the serious application outside of in the intellectual realms.
I wonder that there are not more people these days like Schwaller, Evola, Bardon and the like really researching and practicing these most sacred arts. I guess it is just the result of our modern superficial and material world.
I also find the idea that the alchemical transmutation is produced by the projection of the Shakti or Kundalini of the Alchemist to be fascinating, which shows so clearly the relationship of the spiritual development of the physical transmutative process. Schwaller and Evola seem to be the only people who clearly make many of these connections. Have you ever looked at Bardon's work, another in the same category of genius.
Likewise do I agree with your perception of all reality being ritual, or as the Zen Masters say, this entire world is the Ultimate Reality. I have mostly dug into Adualistic Mysticism and Cosmology, but realize that according to the 3 keys of alchemy it is time to better balance the physical, and emotional bodies with the mental and spiritual, and to integrate more of the Magical practices of the dreamtime planes between the intellectual and the Non-dual, hence my intention to begin a thorough study of the Magical arts.
