A term used by Gurdjieff to refer to the first of seven crystallizations of energy. The seven are:

  1. protoëhary

  2. deuteroëhary

  3. tritoëhary

  4. tetartoëhary

  5. pentoëhary

  6. exioëhary = sperm

  7. resulzarion = gestational results

These words are composed of a prefix derived from Greek numbering. The suffix –ehary is derived from the term “johary” which in Persian-Azerbaijani-Turkish vocabulary means “essence” (or extract) of, or “atomic crystallization of.”


"How foolish we are! We often think that we never do all the foolishness and perversities that we see others do; this is why we arrive at the conclusion that we are magnificent persons. Unfortunately, we do not see the foolishness and wretched things we do."
