Hearth of Hellenism: Is Jim Carrey Studying Esotericism?

Jim Carrey received attention for his eccentric interview on the E! Network at a New York Fashion Week party. In the interview Carry described the event as “meaningless.” Catt Sadler, the interviewer, responded by saying that the event celebrated icons, which Carry responded by saying “I don’t believe in icons” and “I don’t believe in personalities. I believe that peace lies beyond personalities, beyond invention and disguise, beyond the red ‘S’ you wear on your chest, that makes bullets bounce off.” He also added in that the world is not ours and “we don’t matter.” – I think his comments were a commentary on the trivial nature of nonsensical events, how we focus on things like fashion parties instead of deeper matters. Carrey is woke AF in my opinion.

To make things sound even weirder to an already strange interview, Carry also threw out “and there are clusters of tetrahedrons moving around together.” This sentence caught my attention. Carry is not spouting out random crap or speaking crazy talk. His rant sounded somewhat Buddhist in nature, but the mentioning of tetrahedrons is based on the philosophy of Plato and the Pythagoreans before him. A tetrahedron (also known as a triangular pyramid) is one of the Platonic Solids.

In the Timaeus, we learn of five regular solids know as Platonic Solids. The tetrahedron is one of these five solids which are cube, tetrahedron, octahedron, icosahedron, and dodecahedron. Four of the five are associated with the four classical elements. Cube with Earth, icosahedron with Water, tetrahedron with Fire, and octahedron with Air. I am not an expert on details of the Platonic Solids, there is a lot of interesting information about the Platonic Solids online for you to research, check out Secrets of the Platonic Solids Revealed.

What I can say on the subject is that they are part of esoteric studies. Platonic Solids are linked with sacred geometry and offer insights into the nature of the cosmos. Carrey mentioned tetrahedron and what is associated with Fire. Fire is the element which creates change and is linked to the soul. Carrey’s words are a bit more meaningful when you put together everything. By saying “clusters of tetrahedrons moving around together” he could be alluding to an esoteric view of the structure of the cosmos, that we are built of tetrahedrons. He could also be using tetrahedrons as a stand in for souls, stripping away the “icons” and “personalities.” Carrey has clearly been reading material that is philosophical and or possibly esoteric.
