Mu (무 : 無) means “none” or “nothing” and Geuk (극 : 極) means “endpoint of each stage in dimensional change.” Mugeuk (무극 無極), having no extremity, means “infinity.” Mugeuk is often translated as “None-Ultimate”, but another translation is “the Boundless”, as it has no boundaries within and no limitations without.
Traditionally, it is considered the primordial state-the source of the universe- that precedes Taegeuk. There are 2 different concepts of Mugeuk , 0 Mugeuk as 0 point and 10 Mugeuk as completion of all purpose of dimension. 0 Mugeuk is primordial state, void full of infinite creativity or infinite possibility. metaphor : 0 Mugueuk is an unseen seed in the ground.
10 Mugeuk is fulfillment of all creativity and completement by the process of transformation. metaphor : 10 Muguenk is a fruit on a tree, which is the unseen possibility to become a seed and a tree.
Jeung San Do distinguishes between Zero-Mugeuk, which is the primordial state, and the Ten-Mugeuk is the ultimate source of creativity that leads everything to unity, maturation, and completion.
Mugeuk (무극 無極) can be defined as “embracing the power of creation transformation”, “great unification”, “fundamental salvation of humanity”, “the revolution of the world from the ground up”, and “the mind of unification of Dao to achieve the Gaebyeok of Autumn.” Mugeuk (무극 無極) is the harvesting mind of the autumn amidst the cosmic year. In other words, Mugeuk (무극 無極) is the mind of creation and transformation which all things unite, become harmonized, and mature as the order of the spring and summer’s opposition through mutual conflict comes to its end through the Gaebyeok of Autumn. It is where the spiritual beings above the heavens and human beings on earth become one. Humans and spirits living like one world is the world of Mugeuk.
