The Ultimate Reality

Ultimate3

Reference: A Model of Reality

The essay above defined reality as what we perceive at any moment. This reality is made up of filters (thoughts, ideas, assumptions, speculations, visualizations, etc.). The filters include what is observed, the modulation of what is observed, as well as the observer.

What is beyond the filters may be called the ultimate reality.

The Ultimate Reality is basically a starting postulate one uses to make sense out of all existence. If the reality of existence is not consistent with the starting postulate then that starting postulate is not the right one.

Abrahamic religions use a “super self” or God as the starting postulate, or ultimate reality.

Vedic religions use “neti, neti” (not this, not that) or the shedding away of all that is relative, conditioned and impermanent to define their concept of ultimate reality as “Brahma.”

Scientology uses a “Static” or “an abstract ability to postulate and to perceive” as its ultimate reality. This ability is postulated to have no mass, no motion, no wavelength, and no location in space or in time.

The postulate of Ultimate Reality is true only to the degree that it brings consistency and coherency to the understanding of all existence.

All existence seems to boil down to the fact of awareness. It is anything that one can be aware of. The belief in “God,” “Static” or “Brahma,” simply means the awareness of a starting postulate that brings consistency and coherence among all the beliefs and logic that a person uses.”

The rarest of all awareness has to be the awareness of pure disturbance. Prior to that there would be no awareness. Only a theoretical ground state may be postulated in terms of undisturbed primordial field that contains no frequency, wavelength or period.

But this ground state shall forever be unknowable and shall remain only theoretical because there is no awareness to go with it. Awareness arises only when this ground state is disturbed. The awareness then accompanies a disturbance that looks like light and which seems to be traveling through an invisible field that looks like space.

Therefore, the starting postulate of ultimate reality arrived at in KHTK is as follows:

The Ultimate Reality is an undisturbed primordial field of no frequency, wavelength or period. This primordial field produces awareness only when disturbed, and therefore it is inherently unknowable.

This is a theoretical postulate, and not something actual.

    Now starts the quest for an understanding of what DISTURBANCE is.

    Light is a disturbance, and we have a theory of light (electromagnetic radiation).
    Sound is a disturbance, and we have the phenomenon of ultrasonic motion.
    All motion is disturbance, and we have the theory of relativity.
    All physical perceptions (sight, hearing, taste, smell and touch) are disturbances.
    And now we see that awareness, the foundation of mind itself, is a disturbance.

    So, we are aware because there is disturbance. If we can bring about consistency and coherence among all these disturbances, then our nerves could be relaxed, and our mind could be at peace, and we can sleep soundly without anxiety as we did in our childhood.

    And this will make us live longer. 🙂

    This seems to open a new line of thought on the subject of life and death, and on the questions regarding reincarnation. So that would be the new area of investigation. But before that we need to put together a model to describe what “self” really is.

    I am reading the book The Tao of Physics by Fritjof Capra (published in 1975). It starts out with the debate between monism and dualism.

    Early Greeks looked at all things to be alive. In other words, they found all things having both spiritual and physical components. This is how Thales formulated his philosophy. But somewhere along the way the spiritual aspect came to be regarded separate from the physical aspect and we ended up with a spiritual universe separate from a physical universe.

    I don’t think there is truly a debate. The ultimate reality allows awareness and light to be generated together as the spiritual and physical aspects of the starting disturbance. From this disturbance are manufactured all things. Therefore, both spiritual and physical aspects are intimately weaved into everything.

    So I would go along with Thales of Miletus on this fundamental point.

    From the Book “The Tao of Physics”:

    “In the Eastern view, then, the division of nature into separate objects is not fundamental and any such objects have a fluid and ever-changing character. The Eastern world view is therefore intrinsically dynamic and contains time and change as essential features. The cosmos is seen as one inseparable reality – for ever in motion, alive, organic; spiritual and material at the same time.

    “Since motion and change are essential properties of things, the forces causing the motion are not outside the objects, as in the classical Greek view, but are an intrinsic property of matter. Correspondingly, the Eastern image of the Divine is not that of a ruler who directs the world from above, but of a principle that controls everything from within:

    He who, dwelling in all things,
    Yet is other than all things,
    Whom all things do not know,
    Whose body all things are,
    Who controls all things from within-
    He is your Soul, the Inner Controller,
    The Immortal.”

    “The further we penetrate into the submicroscopic world, the more we shall realize how the modern physicist, like the Eastern mystic, has come to see the world as a system of inseparable, interacting and ever-moving components with man being an integral part of this system.”

    .

    That is the conclusion also arrived in KHTK.

    R = Od + F +Or

    Reality = Observed + Filter + Observer

    .

    UR = R – R

    Ultimate Reality = Reality – Reality

    .

    In ultimate reality there is no observer and nothing to observe.

    Inspired by the “The Tao of Physics” by Fritjof Capra:

    Light (electromagnetic radiation) displays a dual nature of both wave-like and particle-like properties. It is a wave but it can dislodge electrons from atoms. This simply implies a property that is common to both light and electrons, which makes such an interaction possible. Maybe light is absorbed by the atom and makes the atom excited enough to spit out an electron. Some property transfers from the light to the electron. We call it energy or motion. Thus, it appears that wave-like motion is transformed into particle-like motion. It is similar to vapor condensing into water. It may be said that certain atomic phenomenon condenses electromagnetic waves into electrons.

    Similarly, certain “spiritual phenomenon” may condense raw awareness into thoughts.

      There may be spiritual atom in which thought electrons may orbit around some kind of spiritual nucleus. It then interacts with awareness waves and condenses them into thoughts.

    In KHTK, each inconsistency in life is like a koan which the person must resolve for onself in order to make spiritual progress.

    The speed of light constant c is formulated from a matter-centric viewpoint. It provides the velocity of light relative to matter. It should better be referred to as cm.

    The speed of light constant ce is formulated from an ether-centric viewpoint. It is the velocity of light compared to the velocity of matter based on the reference point of the velocity of an electromagnetic disturbance of frequency one.

    From “The Tao of Physics” by Fritjof Capra”

    ”The force of gravity, according to Einstein’s theory, has the effect of ‘curving’ space and time. This means that ordinary Euclidean geometry is no longer valid in such a curved space, just as the two-dimensional geometry of a plane cannot be applied on the surface of a sphere. On a plane, we can draw, for example, a square by marking off one meter on a straight line, making a right angle and marking off another meter, then making another right angle and marking off another meter, and finally making a third right angle and marking off one meter again, after which we are back at the starting point and the square is completed. On a sphere, however, this procedure does not work because the rules of Euclidean geometry do not hold on curved surfaces. In the same way, we can define a three-dimensional curved space to be one in which Euclidean geometry is no longer valid. Einstein’s theory, now, says that three-dimensional space is actually curved, and that the curvature is caused by the gravitational field of massive bodies.”

    .

    This is a lovely view of the General Theory of Relativity. This brings into question how an angle should be defined. I have always considered an angle to be the difference between two directions. So the question boils down to how one defines a direction.

    A direction is defined by the path of disturbance called light. It would also be the direction defined by the path of disturbance called awareness. When we are riding the light, the path would always appear straight. Only the sense of gravity may tell us that we are changing direction.

    What is this sense of gravity in terms of awareness? We may call it mind-bending. It would be an external influence.

    I have no idea what this may be leading up to.

      ”The force of gravity, according to Einstein’s theory, has the effect of ‘curving’ space and time….”

      chicken or egg?

      • vinaire  On June 25, 2014 at 9:44 PM

        Yes, it is describing the same phenomenon in two dofferent ways.
