The Universal Context

Previous: Confusion and Faith
Next: Evolution of the Universe

The main topic of mindfulness discussion in the third class on Mindfulness Course is UNIVERSAL CONTEXT. We take up this topic because confusion can be completely eliminated only in the universal context.

SUBJECTIVE & OBJECTIVE

  1. Faith helps align the confusions in life. The wider is the context of faith the greater order it brings to life.

  2. There are uncountable narrow personal contexts. Faiths, which are limited to those contexts, bring order only within those contexts. Faith limited to narrow personal context is SUBJECTIVE.

  3. When expanded, narrow contexts converge to the same universal context. Faith that is valid throughout the universal context brings complete order. Such universally broad faith is OBJECTIVE.

THE SCOPE OF UNIVERSAL CONTEXT

  1. By definition, the universal context includes everything. There is nothing beside the universal context.

  2. The universal context shall include multiverses, parallel universes, the physical universe and even the gods or God.

  3. Thus, the universal context includes all attributes, physical and metaphysical.

THE ORIENTATION POINT OF THE UNIVERSE

  1. The universal context increases in attributes with evolution. We may, therefore, have a scale of universal attributes that goes from zero to infinity.

  2. The reference point of “zero attributes” is theoretical because absolute nothingness does not exist. This reference-point is useful in measuring evolution on a universal scale.

  3. This universe is continually changing physically and metaphysically. No form in it survives forever. Therefore, it is always in motion.

  4. We may, therefore, call the reference point of this universe, STATIC, which will be a point of no motion. All motion in the universe shall be relative to this static. All attributes of the universe shall converge to static.

  5. The STATIC of no attributes shall act as the orientation point for the universe of infinite attributes.

.

NIRVANA AND GOD

  1. Nirvana in Buddhism is expressed as accessing that “still center” around which the self is built. Attaining nirvana literally means “blowing out, extinction, disappearance”. It implies that no attributes are left. We may identify nirvana with the STATIC described above.

  2. God is generally described in terms of omniscience (infinite knowledge), omnipotence (unlimited power), omnipresence (present everywhere), divine simplicity, and as having an eternal and necessary existence. We may identify God with infinite attributes – the other end of the scale described above.

  3. We may put all the physical attributes in the category of the physical universe; and all the metaphysical attributes in the category of God. But these categories are for convenience only. In actuality, all the physical and metaphysical attributes are well-integrated.

In the next class we shall look at the evolution of the universe.
