I admit it. I'm fond of W.B. Yeats' system of Gyres - phases of spiritual and existential evolution based on the phases of the Moon. I also think when you look at the overall motion of life you see cycles within cycles all moving towards a balanced harmony. While Yeats' concept is perhaps a bit geocentric, I can see how the extension of gyroscopic states is readily applied to more universal cycles. As Above, so Below.
