FACTOR # 7. And from the viewpoint to the dimension points there are connection and interchange. Thus new dimension points are made. Thus there is communication.

Thus, there is resolving of doubts, perplexities and confusions by looking for missing dimension points. This brings about connections and interchanges of dimension points within the scope of different viewpoints.

Thus, there is communication between different viewpoints. These connections and interchanges may give rise to new dimension points (considerations) that may or may not actually be part of the universal beingness.

If the viewpoints are narrow then some doubts, perplexities and confusions may never resolve no matter how many connections and interchanges take place. The solution is to keep increasing the scope of the viewpoints.

REVISED FACTOR # 7: There are interchanges between different viewpoints to make connections between dimension points to fully grasp the scope of universal beingness.

.

FINAL COMMENTS

The universal beingness is infinite and it is, forever, discovering itself. This is the evolution that has taken place over eons, and still continuing. That is how life and mankind has come about.

FACTOR # 6. The action of a dimension point is reaching and withdrawing.

The dimension point comes into view and then drops out of the view to be replaced by another dimension point. This may happen in a continuous fashion as everything is connected. But in the infinite matrix of beingness there are always dimension points that are out of view, and which need to be discovered to complete the connections.

This gives rise to confusions, doubts and perplexities that need to be resolved. Thus, come about considerations in addition to what is there, and the task of those considerations is to discover what is missing.

REVISED FACTOR # 6: The dimension points come in and go out of view, bringing awareness that there are dimension points missing from view.

.

FINAL COMMENTS

The universal beingness is evolving by discovering itself.

FACTOR # 5. Thus there is space created, for the definition of space is: viewpoint of dimension. And the purpose of a dimension point is space and a point of view.

Space is the extent of something. Overall space is the extent of the universal matrix. Each dimension point, whether large or small, has the space it occupies.

The viewpoint, or the point of view, depends on the perspective from which something is viewed. The perspective can be universal from which a single dimension point is viewed. Or, the perspective can be that of a single dimension point from which the whole universe is viewed.

REVISED FACTOR # 5: Space is the extent of dimension point. Viewpoint is how narrowly or broadly the dimensions are being considered in viewing the dimension point.

.

FINAL COMMENTS

Hubbard implies that space is the viewpoint of dimension, and that it is created by the viewpoint. In other words, space is the perspective that a viewpoint takes to view a certain dimension.

One is really looking at a dimension point rather than the dimensions. A dimension is a scale whose ends appear as a dichotomy, such as, “good – bad”. The dimensions provide the context in which the characteristics of a dimension point are being assessed such as, how good or bad something is.

FACTOR # 4. The second action of beingness is to extend from the viewpoint, points to view, which are dimension points.

The universal beingness has infinity of dichotomies. A dichotomy is like two opposite ends of a scale, such as, “near – far”, “now – then”, “night – day”, “good – bad”, etc., that extend into infinities in opposite directions.

In other words, the universal beingness has infinity of dimensions, where each dimension extends as a scale into infinity in either direction. Each scale thus contains infinity of points to view. These are dimension points.

Each dimension point may represent a precise characteristic that is associated with infinity of other characteristics on its own and other dimensions. This forms a matrix of infinite dimensions and many infinities of nodes (dimension points).

REVISED FACTOR # 4: The universal beingness is a matrix of infinite dimensions. Each dimension contains infinity of dimensions points to view.

.

FINAL COMMENTS

The universal beingness in infinite. It may be viewed more closely to infinity of degrees. It may be viewed from afar to infinity of degrees. It is everywhere. It is made up of every duration possible. It has no limits.

FACTOR # 3. The first action of beingness is to assume a viewpoint.

Viewpoint is a frame of reference. It is a natural aspect of beingness. For example, there is a universal viewpoint associated with beingness that is the universe.

The universal viewpoint may be narrowed in order to focus it on a part of the universal beingness. This narrowed viewpoint may be broadened back to view the universal beingness. There is this flexibility to the viewpoint.

When viewpoint is narrowed to focus on a part of beingness and becomes fixed at that point, then it loses its flexibility. It perceives everything from that narrow perspective. Now there is a unique perspective from which to advance opinions. This defines subjectivity.

The natural viewpoint of universal beingness sees thing as they are without the uniqueness of any perspective. This defines objectivity.

REVISED FACTOR # 3: The natural aspect of beingness is its viewpoint. The universal viewpoint sees things as they are. This is objectivity.

.

FINAL COMMENTS

The concept that comes closest to the “universal viewpoint” is God. But God is not a human like being. God is the whole universe.

We may say that Emptiness and God are two opposite ends of the scale of viewpoint. This makes “Emptiness – God” a dichotomy.

To fully understand a point on this scale the reference point of Emptiness is required. Therefore, God may be understood fully only from the reference point of Emptiness.
