When the Phytagorian cosmic egg ecloses, the One surfaces. One could say that the Zero recognizes itself as the One, Consciousness, Original Mind, First Cause, impersonal and unmanifested, the scenery of the periodic Universal Manifestation: the Phytagorian Monad.
A Monad signifies to be simple and indivisible, which constitutes in itself an essential image of the Universe.
The Hermetic texts mention Aton (god): the first mind that is hidden and therefore manifests itself everywhere. That is nothing that it is not, and it is the Unity contained in all the things.
For both the Phytagoric conceptions ith its roots in Egypt and the Greek Neoplatonic, the number One regenerates itself, as it is auto-sufficient. For which it is worth to associate it with divinity itself.
The Monad was also related to the Sun, which its central fire, and named as the “Nous,” the spiritual mind.
