Emptiness & Awareness


Reference: Mindfulness Approach


The physical field that fills the Emptiness as a disturbance, is aware of itself. Whereas the electromagnetic field is the physical aspect of the disturbance, awareness is the metaphysical aspect of the same disturbance. Thus, we have a division of reality into physical and metaphysical characteristics.

The concept of field is well explored with scientific precision in physics (please see Disturbance Theory). We may now explore the concept of awareness with equal precision in metaphysics.

The physical field is continually oscillating between electrical and magnetic characteristics to separate itself as a disturbance from emptiness. The awareness must also oscillate continually for the same reason. It is postulated that awareness oscillates between perception and consciousness.

Similar to the physical field, oscillations also give SUBSTANCE to awareness.

Perception starts out in the form of physical senses, but as it gets absorbed and assimilated in a mental matrix it produces a metaphysical consciousness. The consciousness then influences what the mind perceives. This interchange between perception and consciousness becomes obvious in the natural tendency in people to seek out what agrees with them.

Awareness also has inertia in the sense that a specific awareness tries to maintain itself. The characteristic inertia of awareness is determined by the frequency of oscillations.

The substance of awareness has the property of INERTIA.

As the frequency increases, the oscillations become denser, and the cycles of oscillation shrink. The increased “density” of oscillations shows up as increased inertia. The increase in inertia tends to “pin down” the awareness more in the sense of making it more “solid”.

Increase in inertia helps specific awareness maintain its status quo.
