FACTOR # 22. And there are universes.

For a viewpoint, the universe shall be the entirety of its awareness. The universal viewpoint shall have the awareness that has the characteristics of being continuous, harmonious and consistent throughout. This shall be the objective universe.

When the awareness is not fully continuous, harmonious and consistent throughout, but has holes in it, then the associated viewpoint is subjective to some degree. That awareness constitutes a subjective universe.

KHTK FACTOR # 22: There are as many “universes” as there are subjective viewpoints; but there is only one objective universe.



As the subjectivity of a viewpoint is resolved it progresses towards become objective. The resolution of subjectivity means the resolution of discontinuities, disharmonies and inconsistencies.

There are uncountable subjective universes. They are subjective because there is one kind or another of discontinuity, disharmony or inconsistency that characterizes them. The associated viewpoint is unable to see it.

But there is only one universe that is completely continuous, harmonious and consistent. This is the objective universe.
