Point-of-Departure The BURGEONING!
by Ron O. Cook
(Author of The Enigmni)
In the fifth century, Saint Augustine indicated that God created the universe out of and outside of time. Timelessness is an interesting subject to think on scientifically as well as spiritually. Ask a scientist the ultimate why, and he will say we came from no thing. Then ask him to explain what no thing is -- It will probably look about like the clothes that the emperor was wearing, the day the little boy decided to think for himself and find deeper meaning in the apparentness found inside the soul. Half of science is an assumption (educated guess) -- the other half manifests in a fabricated illusion built upon known parts with no relationship to the totality. Science is done while we preoccupy ourselves with "their" reality. Humanity must return to waiting for the one who whispers to our deepest consciousness...the truths of being. Einstein called this mental-abyss, the little "Old Man" inside of us. He may point to the Burgeoning of Humanity.
It was once said that the face of God is a fraction past, and inclusive of the optical nerve and what drives it. Godhood is not necessarily conceptual, it (the Absolute) is being and becoming and only the created (crystalized) can be thought upon as it issues forth from the generative order or the Void that we do not presently understand. The Absolute is ongoing, nonlinear, non-local (to our perception), self-similar, self-organizing, and creative. Whatever else it is, cannot be known by one mind (a part or child of...), total perception can only be known by totality. The part can never know the whole while it is the part. It must join the whole for total knowing. It is believed that Budda did this and Christ was always this. The "Me" must embrace (love, know, join or be aware of) the Other, because the Other is the Me (the all-self). We are in this together. The joining becomes the Essence.
Einstein offered many clues to the real secret to knowing our existence. It has been reported that he somehow believed deeply in mystical possibilities, knowing that a balance of science and spiritual concepts held the secrets of true knowing. These double icons of wisdom, working in unison, would in the end put mankind on a new threshold of understanding. Each point of departure would really reinforce and compliment the other when humanity finally adopted the right path of perceptive ascension. Einstein's quest was to attain the gestalt-view and his life showed that one without the other was lame. Yet our scientific and religious society continues to polarize the great avenues of wisdom to fragment humanity into fruitless pursuits through ambitious leveraging for power. Polarization may be the ultimate evil.
The Universe and Manifest Mind -- A theory
There exists in the realm of experiences much more than the big bang as a source for the universe's beginnings and our subsequent introduction into being. Consider the concepts of holography, feedback loops, fractals, the broadcast of the electromagnetic spectrum, quantum theory (local and nonlocality), and many other subjects of creative delineation through scientific or deific manifestation. The fact remains that "mind" is present in this continuum. Where does it come from and how does it manifest?
Let us consider a new concept...Virtual Reality. It is a human endeavor to participate in a computer-created world via extra-electro-sensors such as viewing goggles, gloves or a total sensor-suit. Those who immerse into this newly created world can experience perceptual stimuli that approaches the visual and tactile expressions of reality. The Department of Defense and NASA have plans to converge robotics with VR to allow a cybernaut to travel, work, and fight in hostile environs while controlled by a human at a remote site. With such capabilities, we would be able to explore the universe from our own living rooms --thereby experiencing vicariously the stimuli of pain, suffering and learning via feedback information from afar.
Imagine putting on a head-mounted display and body-sensor suit that would correspond to sensors in a robot that might be millions of miles away -- say on Mars. You could actually become part of a cyber-being that would interact with the Martian environment. Turn your head and it reacts to your every movement, and sensual stimuli from the planet causes you to react via feedback. You would be able to experience all the wonders of such a far away place in a direct sensory manner. One wonders, would living through this vehicle eventually displace your understanding of true reality? What if you could programme its memory with yours through DNA programming, then allow someone else on another shift to pick up and continue with his experiments and adds his programmes or thoughts to the same robot? Each day the robot would become more sophisticated as its experiences multiplied. Later we could add new advances in micro-machines and nanotechnology to create an evolving robot that would actually grow physically toward higher accomplishments. It could be programmed to repair itself and perhaps even give a cyber-birth to new cyber-forms that would assist you in your exploration. With new additions being developed back on Earth you could even get the feeling that you were on that planet instead of your robotic vehicle. You might get so good at controlling more than one robot at a time that you would become a family or a nation of robots letting you experience the grandeur of multiple personalities. What fun!
Discovering the Mystery
Intertwined in this "fun" experience is the length, width, breadth and timelessness of the greatest mystery of the universe. If we can attain the above experience via VR in this rudimentary human invention, who is to say that this is not what is already happening to Godhead at this very instance. We were created in his image. Who can refute that we are all an experiment of a higher being that is currently enjoying a broadcasted reality via quantum particles that are electromagnetically constituted into this reality that we "think" we are experiencing right now. Hindu, the oldest religion on Earth, speaks of the One with no second, who lives through all of us in his "playing." Is God playing life through us and we just forgot that we are part of another realm where experiencing a VR is the preoccupation of timelessness?
Think of your own becoming. When you were conceived, you and your DNA program came into a body that was new and hard to maneuver in a physical state. God's VR has a learning curve. You had to get familiar with the new apparatus. REASON or mind began to learn to use the Holy Temple. When a baby first arrives on Earth he/she is mentally more a part of everything or what some call the Other or the Essence. Some say we are actually smarter at birth and just learn to be somatically stupid. During the first few months, ego has not yet made its stand against the universe. The ego-image has not yet formed until it begins to observe itself in the eye of the other. Mirroring sets the self in a reality that is shown or received via sensors. Sensory experiences create the other for the individual. Soon you will learn to forget where you came from because of the dictates of this state. Learning to live in this physical world is our crux of being...to become. We learn to stand upon our experiences as a cushion from the void (a place we only know of in another state). The void represents the unknown or feeling of loneliness and awe. We feel very small against our lack of knowing. It has been posited that if we are not observed by the other, we begin to feel lonely as if we do not exist. Recognition and observation is basic to (quantum) being for all that makes up the universe. Worthiness began to set the stage for worship when mankind sought to remember his being in this physical state. Religion was once the science of that being.
Do all of our religious writings suggest that at the core of those impassioned words lies the secret and the truth of our reality? Yes. Religious traditions say that God gave us being and the Word -- REASON. Reason or mentality is our existence within the somatic-vehicular experience. Our bodies are our holy temples or means of motivation in a physical state. We should not do harm to our Holy Temples. Another point of Reason is that we should love our neighbors as we love ourselves. This may be because we are our neighbors as a result of their input to our being. It is possible that at the end of this God projected VR, we'll learn that we did all those dirty deeds to ourselves. The above may be the Why of religion...a method to awaken to the real being involved in this life episode.
Today almost all members of our scientific community are gradually coming to realize that reality is indeed beyond our current theories and some have suggested that our environ is a God-like concept...the god of Mental Universal technology on an unbelievable scale...the quantum entity. Some say that the universe is a massive computer where numbers are the language that it creates for its virtual reality from. When great scientists like David Bohm, Paul Davies and others marvel that mankind can even contemplate the universe, what Bohm calls the holomovement -- a realm that is a manifestation or broadcast of Being, progress in existential understanding is being made. How can mankind even think about something so magnificent as the makeup of himself and the universe? Quantification is the key here -- to assign REASON is to measure knowing in a physical state. This universe may be a combination of VR, quantum physics, nanotechnology, holography, fractal geometry, plasma physics, computational mirroring, inherent cosmological understanding and much more. The possibility that we may discover the truth of what we are, might just be found in the Virtual Reality Synergism.
Over the next few years mankind will be subjected to the possibility of universal knowing on a scale that could only be called a "revelation." Soon, humanity may learn that all those ancient words that our ancestors were in awe of, will suddenly come into a living understanding that will cause a new birth of higher knowing. This new stage will amount to a Being full of billions and billions of experiences incorporated to embark upon a new direction of increasing cognition and spirituality. Then mankind will leave this "wheel" (Earthly existence) and graduate to things that we can only dream of -- unless our dreams are the reality of this VR? To think that this could happen was once laughed at by skeptics, but they probably have not had the experience of even the current versions of Virtual Reality.
Getting a grip on reality
If people think VR is somewhat unbelievable, read this --technologists and scientists for business, the Department of Defense and NASA are working hard to help us get more out of virtual reality. They are working on a kind of camera that will reach out and grab reality no matter where it is. They believe that, if just a tiny particulate of the once known reality can be quantified(triangulated), then its reality can possibly be reconstituted using all the known equations of today's mathematical (fractal geometry?) reality. What kind of camera could do this? Some call it a "reality-grabber."
The reality-grabber is a computerized configuration that can measure and organize the environ that it comes in contact with via conventional camera and sophisticated digital scanning conversions of a multiplicity of electromagnetic data. Holography and fractal geometry would play an important role in the output of its malleable and quantifiable data. Such a machine would also know where it is at all times in the physical environment as it relates to planetary and Earthly data. With the above information and a "mirror" software ability to organize every little bit of information, such an apparatus could record and distribute data that would make Virtual Reality as common as today's television only with billions of alternative programming options possible. Individuals wishing to have their own interactive ability with the output program could easily experience any number of sequences that others may never stumble upon. Variety would indeed be the spice of life.
When the RG becomes available to VR, think of all the possibilities for learning, travel and entertainment. Simulation of every physical task could be available for instant enjoyment and replay. The reality-grabbers resolution of visual data will be astonishing, because holographic images (dynamic-data) will be delivered for life-like learning or experiencing via any format of delivery with computer enhancement amplifying its data-signals whatever its "footprint." The media will no longer be the message; instead -- the message will be the virtual experience. You will become Steven Spielberg because the entire studio will be at your fingertips for editing, special effects, reshooting, sound track/s, lighting, mixing and output. There's no redoing the scene because any and all possible alternatives could be reconstructed with the available data of the reality-grabber.
Ultra-vicarious experiences will be possible if the RG has just a few points to triangulate in order to reconstitute. We are talking about a world of instant mirroring of reality for reuse. Its like a radio talk show that broadcasts a few seconds after the primary incidence except you can change its outcome for interfacing and integration. This will allow many things: to replay reality, even get ahead of what is really happening so trial and error strategy can anticipate what the outcome might be; to recreate and pre-create alternate case histories that aren't even history yet; to simulate the future. The idea of creating a mirror world is perhaps so new that its potential to society is not totally extrapolatable.
I believe that one repercussion of the above technology will be, that we will have to rethink the concept of vocation. At this point in time, many people are already out of a job because of burgeoning technology and its only getting worse. With this new powerful concept of Virtual Reality exploding into our future, and because of the prospects of the reality-grabber, almost all creative informating (metamorphosis of media) activities will also ignite into a chaos of information saturation. Consider that all of us will be showing-off the "systems" creativity, who will be around to buy when all of humanity is experiencing the mindscape? Since technology replaces humanity, who will be able to afford it? Are we humans creating our own dead end? Or, are we entering the process for creating the next world?
If we develop a reality-grabber that's better than the lens of the human mind, where will we find ourselves? True it will amplify our capabilities to that of simulated godhood, but what about the experiential and educational equity to the rest of us? Some of us will become living gods -- being able to afford the technology that will educate our children at a light-year/ lightspeed level over the common individual's inaccessiblity to the techworld. We will create the ultimate disparity, opening ourselves up to polarizations that will need to be addressed in a civilization and world that can literally jump to a new punctuated equilibrium -- creating a new Otherworld overnight. Conflict resolution will certainly be the business to be involved in, (lawyers and psychologists will have more work) as humanity continues to become the behemoth that some of us once saw on our ever expanding horizon of cybermedia.
Overcoming the barriers to Mind and Body
The next step beyond the digitizing of reality will lead to the "beaming up of Scottie." Even now, scientists are working at breakneck speed to convert our digital world to one embracing DNA and its dimensional enhancement of computing via four molecule combinations -- A T C G rather than 0 and 1. Thus, we may begin to understand the ancient messages of Brahma (Hari the four-faced) who, according to Hindu tradition, was the instrument of creation in conjunction with the First Cause. Here we may rediscover knowledge that humanity once took for granted. Once humanity unites the disciplines of Genetic Engineering with the symbol of the ancient caduceus, which is DNA's double helix, then we will begin to create tools that will build a new and higher understanding of universal purpose. Building the super-mind via the tools of DNA through the amplification of neuronic-technology (neurons of the human brain) will set our flight from Earth toward the super-universe. Before this happens, mankind will need to fully understand the connection between himself and the Divine act of creation including the true understanding of Light and Mind.
Human Birth, A Mental
Expression From A Cosmic Mind
The edges of my distant memory about manifestation (birth) within this realm of humanity, are smooth with few if any perturbations. Perhaps I am thinking in a linear aspect rather than the gestalt language of universal symbolism that we are said to be born from. If I preceived differently, I might recall everything. Beyond the realm of everyday reality lies potential and its continuum of mindscape or dream-ware -- it may represent our future and perhaps our past.
Some evidence indicates that we are in touch with the frontiers of a hyper-fractalian laced feedback-loop or some other holomovement concept that interconnects the beginning, end, and after-part of our lives, in an infinite process full of God's interactive exchange. God existing outside of time, interacts with our paths to create spirals of looping familiarity manifesting within the electromagnetic spectrum. Researchers such as Timothy Ferris, who wrote the 1992 book called, The Mind's Sky, have equated the mind with the universe. Ferris' work focuses our minds on the possibilities of syntheses of inner worlds with outer worlds opening up dialogue that must be addressed by our society, especially institutionalized education. Whereas, most of us cannot comprehend our own reasons for mental existence because our current human baggage is too heavy with the preoccupation of flesh or matter -- people like Ferris and myself believe that collectively we can comprehend our destiny's being.
Much has been written about the relationship of the universe and mankind's mind. The beginning of this research usually starts with our birth. In the July '93 issue of Life Magazine , there was an article that raved about recent breakthroughs by scientists in their studies of infants and how they were moving to the realization that babies are much more enlightened than we had once thought. Apparently, the little-ones are perfectly capable of very sophisticated operations requiring memory and understandings about math physics and emotions -- subjects once reserved for scientific elitists. Some believe the embryo is already learning as his neurons are forming and firing -- building a physical, thinking-enclave on this side of the cosmos.
Perhaps there is an unbroken chain of knowing that only converts linguistic syntax from the universal mind into the understanding of physical existence. The entity converts gestalt knowing into the 150 sounds that constitute human verbiage, thereby mapping the brain for "hardcopy" existence. We become. What the article in the "secular" magazine cannot address is the spiritual side of thought. A baby may have access to universal thought but since he/she is busy materializing into a complex physical being, like learning to control new apparatuses in order to find food. the knowing of the universe is subsumed in importance and may finally fade, awaiting death for its resurgence. It just takes time to grow into the jaded adult we finally become. We could become much more if we can only get in touch with our potential and what brought us here. Total re-learning is the key.
Fear seems to be one of the best teachers in our early beginnings. We go from no fear to many. The "prime directive" must be the protection of the vehicle as the "soul" experiments with the tools of physical reality. The experience gained becomes the preoccupation of the entity as he/she learns to drive a new chariot...the human body. The personality of the soul becomes built in proportion to the amount of fear the body is subjected to. Emotions grow, serving as leveraging tools to control the insecurity the infant begins to feel in its day to day encounters with solid life.
Guidance on this side of the universe comes from souls already here...parents or adults. The quality of assistance given by adults can erase our once known mission, or it can add to the subliminal reminiscences we have as members of the "generative order" (the Absolute's domain). If we encounter too much fear we become paranoid, or if we are coddled we become spoiled and selfish pointing us to liberal or literal interpretations of life. The caliber of the person who serves as mother and or father is one of the determining factors of our character. At present, there is an increasing amount of poor parenting interfacing with our babies. It is almost an exponential process with evil serving as a barometer to our embeddedness in the finite physical state. To enter the infinite-universal state requires creative thought, passion and a memory of Truth (the Pathway).
The infinite universal state is such because humanity could never know all its parameters, knowledge or secrets even in a collective mind. It moves too fast and after all, the part cannot know the whole. Knowledge (transcribed by light and time?) makes up the universe, otherwise it would not exist because it must be observed in order to become. So, humanity may exist in soft-time or a stratified layering of increasingly manifest time and light. Time must somehow be tied to light as engines of motion for each other. Even the nature of light (Fohat the electromagnetic or broadcast Diety) is truly not known by mankind yet. So, we cannot know our own existence. Time, light, space and matter all remain an enigma to even the most intelligent humans. Science only wishes it truly knew their secrets while there exists on Earth the total recollection of all that knowledge in the form of ancient Vedas for their reinterpolation. Reading between the lines, one is faced with the truth of old Mysteries.
Indeed, if future learners meditate and press the envelope of deep contact with their super consciousness, we may be able to discern a gestalt picture of Timelessness. Individually, you may not understand your dreams, but they are indeed timeless and they speak to you in a gestalt-symbol(s)-oriented-sphere of knowledge -- mind globules of enlightenment. Since almost all of us dream at varying levels of sophistication, we may all be privy to a holographic window mirrored after and by the power of our former home. Perhaps its time we looked and listened to our inner being a little bit more to add to and amplify what information we struggle through on the outside. Our purpose for being will be found there (inside) patiently waiting to shed light (Mind) in a wattage not previously known in this current state of Being.
Meditation is a consciousness enhancer. It is the closest means we have of connecting to the Collective-Absolute-Conscious state where meaning can be understood. It has been postulated that super consciousness contains the thinker, the thing thought upon, and the total cognition or data potential of the dimension(s). If we methodically push ourselves to deeper thought we begin to amplify our mental being. Few of us can shield out the noise data of our Earthly surroundings in order to experience the above; but, it must be done.
Perhaps, we as dedicated humans, must construct a mental pedestal from where we can view the Collective's massive Virtual Reality (life) which would actually be a Continuum of Duration rather than sequential time because of the scope addressed. When in this modality, one could be cleansed of the weight of sequential existence, and slip deeply into super consciousness. Some call this state, euphoria, a point in which time seems to stand still and mental saturation is experienced. Knowledge is imparted at such speeds that after the experience of euphoria, one is hard-put to remember it all in the so-called conscious state. The noise of today's social existence is almost always overpowering in its demand for attention, thereby disallowing the human desire for a spiritual alignment and awakening to new vistas of wisdom. However, if we and our children are to rise to the potential that awaits us, then we the future Seekers must lead the way by providing the spirit, energy and means to higher learning. Learning and teaching the meaning of Motion, Truth and Human Leveraging will prepare us for the turbo-world of tomorrow. This taking on of a deep consequential or karma-oriented mode is the key to understanding why we must become. The proper state of being (initiation) just may be the realization that we should be in a Christos modality in order to see our Godhood. This realization could be the Burgeoning of Humanity.
