From early version of The Dramatic Universe, Book 1-J.G. Bennett
” The answer to the question why and how events occur is given by the law of Three. We may start with a brief statement of the law. Every event, of whatever nature and whatsoever scale, is composed of three elements and can be seen as the interaction of three forces corresponding to thee elements. The coming together of these three components constitutes the event. It is also the cause of the event and the manner in which it happens. Each of the three components has a definite character which is always: the same, and, for this reason they are sometimes called three forces or three qualities. Every event from’ the creation of the world down to the smallest and most insignificant happenings, from purely mental processes to purely physical ones, from events which have the duration in time to these which can be conceived outside of space and time, all, without exception, can be seen as the combination of the same three components. This law is by no means a new discovery. It has been formulated, misunderstood, lost, re-discovered, misunderstood again in innumerable forms throughout the history of human thought. The Triad is the very centre and root of more than one philosophical system. It is clearly implied in many of the most important generalisations of natural science. The deep-rooted and universal importance which, among all the races of the world, is attached to the number three is evidence of its antiquity. The Triad has entered into the profoundest dogmas of religion. It has perhaps never been so much disregarded and misunderstood as it is at the present day, so that the re-formulation and fresh development of the Law of Three are a necessary preliminary to any attempt at understanding man and the universe.”
