The macro/microcosmic Assholon

We've all heard of traditions that see the human body as a microcosm to the macrocosm, an "as above so below" metaphor that posits a metaphysical everything (One) that our bodies fully represent on the material plane (a special One). See for example this section of The Secret Teachings of All Ages. This is often depicted with da Vinci's famous drawing, below:

Now the center of this universe is man, and the physical center of man is typically assumed to be the area just below the navel. In the above it could very well be the genitals. I say the center of man, both human and universal, is the asshole. And therefore the assholon, both universal and human, can be depicted as follows, using the 4-quadrant diagram as a frame with the assholon in the center. One can fill in the human anatomy upon this bare frame.
