The Earth - and all what constitutes it - would be submitted to 48 laws, according to Ouspensky. The caucasian G. Gurdjieff claims the same thing by asserting that the Earth would be submitted to 48 forces by taking account of the Sun, the moon, the planets, all the worlds and the Absolute. In the same way, according to Samael Aun Weor, the terrestrial man lives in a world subjected to 48 laws. But "below us, under the surface of the Earth, exist worlds of 96 and 192 forces and several others, that are enormously more complicated and terribly materialistic, and where one does not remember even more than the Will of the Absolute exists." With the involution of the souls, their life becomes more complicated with an increasingly large number of laws. Conversely, through the "Revolution of the Conscience", the evolving souls are released themselves from the 48, the 24, the 12 and finally from the 6 laws to enter at the end in the Absolute.
