FACTOR # 16. The viewpoint can combine dimension points into forms and the forms can be simple or complex and can be at different distances from the viewpoints and so there can be combinations of form. And the forms are capable of motion and the viewpoints are capable of motion and so there can be motion of forms.

The dimension points are seen as they are, only from the universal viewpoint. Here the nature of dimension points and the universal viewpoint is synonymous, which makes the dimension points change, combine and evolve in a continuous, harmonious and consistent fashion. This may be described best as self-animation. This is the real motion.

But the viewpoints commonly encountered are less than universal. A subjective filter polarizes the dimension points and viewpoints making the dimension points appear external to viewpoints. The synonymity is lost and the changes, combinations and evolution are attempted through enforcement and control as there is mystery about their nature. There are misperceptions, misjudgments and departures from reality. This is unnatural motion.

KHTK FACTOR # 16: The dimension points combine into more complex forms that move in a continuous, harmonious and consistent fashion. Their synonymity with the universal viewpoint makes it self-animation. But lesser viewpoints see it as a motion external to them.



We all have self-animation that we hardly ever think about, but that is the true motion. All other motion that we are trying to control is coming from the inability to have the universal viewpoint.
