False ideas can agglomerate into a sturdy structure that seems to contain truth but don't. This is the reason that the guidance of science and logical continuity of ideas is critical when modeling the metaphysical realm. Asserting that every metaphysical reality is mythical (i.e., non-real) is a mistake. There are states of consciousness that resolve under entheogenic phytochemical magnitude of consciousness expansion that are overtly 'metaphysical' because they transition ordinary individual consciousness into the realm of delocalized cosmic consciousness. This delocalized supra-consciousness is unmistakably understood to be the hidden heart of nature. Someone hearing an account of such an experience might say, 'those kinds of experiential states are hallucinatory fiction'. But, unless one has entered into delocalizing consciousness expansion it is very difficult to 'understand' a shocking, even fearful, truth: an omnipresent supra-consciousness resides at the heart of natural reality .
Science is the endeavor that tries to ascertain the "truth" by observation and abstraction. In the realm of consciousness, where science is not easily applicable, it is possible to make scientifically aligned guesses as to what the underlying architecture of that domain might be. A plausible guess is that the theme of symmetry (see www.symmetrymagazine.org for CERN's take on the centrality of symmetry in physical reality), which underlies the physical realm's architecture, also plays a central role in the 'metaphysical' architecture of consciousness.
And what is found by direct cognition? The fundamental architectural feature of consciousness is symmetry. At the final stages of consciousness expansion the simplest, the purest, the clearest pristine trans-beautiful symmetry of the supra-conscious absolute is what remains. At this threshold, reality resolved into two: the final forms of palpable reality melding by resonation into the unbounded awe of the formless absolute. This is the ultimate nature and purpose of the sexual allure.
