FACTOR # 13. The dimension points are each and every one, whether large or small, solid. And they are solid solely because the viewpoints say they are solid.

The fundamental viewpoint is that of the universe. From this viewpoint the whole universe is perceived objectively. This gives the glimpse of the universe truly for what it is.

Departure from this universal viewpoint can occur in infinitely different ways. This produces infinity of narrower viewpoints, each having its own view of the universe. These are the subjective versions of the original dimension points.

The original dimension points are each and every one, real, continuous, harmonious and consistent. They are what they are as awareness, thought, force and the solidity of matter. But they may be viewed differently depending on the subjectivity of a viewpoint.

REVISED FACTOR # 13: The dimension points, each and every one, whether large or small, form awareness, thoughts, force and solidity of matter . But they may be viewed differently depending on the subjectivity of the viewpoint.

FINAL COMMENTS

We cannot say what dimension points are truly like unless we can see them as they are. That is possible only from a universal viewpoint. That viewpoint is completely objective, and it sees the universe as a complete whole. This makes the universe real, continuous, harmonious and consistent.

But rarely anybody holds that universal viewpoint. Our viewpoints are much narrower and, therefore, infused with subjectivity. Thus, we view the universe as “colored by the narrowness of our viewpoint”. This makes the dimension points different for different viewpoints.
