The enneagram according to Gurdjieff shows the “Law of Seven” and the “Law of Three” united and so some explanation of these laws is necessary here. Air can provide this shock because it also is of densityand furthermore this air enters as a new Do.
As the enneagram figure is a symbol said to represent the “law of seven” and the “law of three” in unity, therefore, according to this view, the figure can be used to describe any natural whole phenomenon, cosmos, process in life or any other piece of knowledge.
There has also been speculation that it may be related to the Pythagorean Tetractyswhich also combines the numbers 3 and 7.

There will be black keys between each of the white keys, except between E and F the mi-fa interval and between B and the higher C the si-do interval. A failure to recognize this in terms of human projects is said to be a major reason why things go wrong in general. Point 6 being where “impressions”, regarded as a type of food, are said to enter the body. These six points together with the point numbered 9 are said to represent the main stages of any complete process, and can be related to the notes of a musical octave9 being equivalent to “Doh” and 1 to “Re” etc.
Point 1, he wrote, represented the digestive system, point 2 the blood stream, point 4 the breathing system, point 5 the brain, point 7 the spinal cord and point 8 the sympathetic nervous system and sex organs, and the lines “showed the direction of the flow or distribution of arterial blood in the organism and then its return in the form of venous blood” .
One shock point is shown on the enneagram at point 3, which is the Mi-Fa interval where it might be expected. Other applications of the fneagrama to describing processes can be found in writings influenced by those of Gurdjieff,  notably in the writings of J. Karppe, Paris,pp.

This Mi of “density” 12 is the “higher substance” primarily necessary for Gurdjieff’s esoteric method. Otherwise only the ordinary food octave, shown in black in the diagram, proceeds.
These three forces can appear in any order, for example orgiving 6 possible “triads” of forces describing 6 very broad types of event. The figure is the central organizing glyph of the Fourth Way’s view of the material world which Gurdjieff is quoted by Ouspensky as relating to alchemy. A further conscious shock, requiring “a special type ek control over the emotions” at point 9 would enable a new “higher” or spiritual body to begin to grow, this is represented by Gurdjieff as the aim of his and other esoteric traditions.
The gurdjiieff is a nine-pointed figure usually inscribed within a circle. Ouspensky the enneagram was introduced by George Gurdjieff to his study groups in Saint Fneagrama and Moscow in The points numbered 3 and 6 are said to represent “shock points” which affect the way a process develops.
A book published in”The Enneagram: A desire to conserve this “higher substances” for esoteric use is said to be the original reason for religious celibacy. A motionless enneagram is a dead symbol, the living symbol is in motion” . The most detailed example of how this is said to work, given in In Search of the Miraculousis an explanation of how Gurdjieff believed inputs to the human body “food”, “air” and “impressions”, collectively regarded as types of food are processed into the so-called “higher substances” necessary for higher consciousness to function.
The inscribed figure resembling a web connects the other six points in a cyclic figure New York and London: Unfit url Use dmy dates from July At point 4 the original food octave is at “Fa” but the new air octave is at Re. The Law of Three holds that three forces act on any event, which can be called Active, Passive, and Neutralizing forces, or simply First, Second, and Third forces respectively.

Another of his books, Enneagram Studies is devoted to the subject, offering nine examples of enneagrams in various applications. These are the So or “Sol” part of the original food octave and the Mi part of the air octave. The Law of Seven or law of octaves, according to which phenomena evolves in seven steps; and the Law of Three, according to which phenomena are produced by three forces, are presented by Gurdjieff as global laws appearing on all scales and essential to his cosmology.
