Who is God in ‘Particular’?

In response to Daily Prompt: Particular

 

Particle physics may not always be able to explain our reality, because the light through which we see the world outside can be proven to be a particle if our experiment aims at proving so, or a wave if our experiment is aimed at establishing the wave theory.

Is there a ‘God Particle’ out there in the gigantic CERN experimental laboratories that may explain to us the entire story of creation?

We are made of particles. Or are we in-fact light?

Or is God a ‘Particular’ person like one of us, just much more powerful…who has simulated this entire reality of our existence here in the world through his brilliant intelligent technology as witnessed by us in the perfect design of nature?

Religion can, just like the experiments of science, be contradictory at times when it attempts to define God as ‘a particular person out there in heaven’, and at the same time say that ‘God is LOVE’, because while a person seems to be of ‘particular’ form, Love is an energy we all have within us, and unlimited.

Perhaps we need to take a cue from science and realize that the way we see something, even God, is the way it will appear to us, filtered through our own level of consciousness.

Those of us who attempt to see God as an outside being that is having an absolute and unquestionable power over their reality will end up meeting more people and reading more texts that will constantly strengthen their own particular point of view time and again. Their realities will continue to be something that is not within their own creative influence but only dependent on the benevolence of this ‘particular’ being they worship. Just like experimenters in science who try to observe something with their outer eyes, they bring their own observer bias, and create their own ‘particular’ limitations based on their own ‘particular’ beliefs. Trapped in that point of view, human beings might wait for some kind of a higher power to awaken us and heal the world…waiting forever without actually being the change we seek.

When we drop all our beliefs altogether and allow ourselves to experience who we are, then alone do we start unfolding the many spirals that hide our own truth within.

Meditation simply means to ‘go within‘. Looking at anything from the outside can only be like dreaming a dream and looking for the dreamer among all the characters in our own dream.

Can any ‘other’ person in our dream ever be the creator of our own dream?

One who meditates knows that he or she can never be absolutely sure that the world he or she is living in is not just like a dream. Ask yourself if science can ever find a particle that is not a wave at the core. Are we living in a hologram or matrix linked deeply with our mind? Let the arrow of awareness point back to yourself. Observe yourself.

By asking ‘Who am I?’ the dreamer realizes himself as the dreamer or the creator of this entire play around the Self.

We can for ourselves see our entire reality shifting and changing in accordance with our own thoughts, our own emotional states and our own subconscious fears or hopes. We will be able to influence our life experiences, and not just in small or insignificant ways. By transforming our own deepest fears to LOVE, we will see how everything in our life becomes more and more beautiful and loving. We do not need a scientific experiment to establish this as true. Those who meditate and discover their inner source of endless love can see it for themselves. This miraculous dream called life is for each individual, created by nothing else but their own inner vibrations.

Those who seek God outside as someone in ‘particular’ who is beyond them, do not see God as their own inner energy. Through their fear or disbelief in their own magical power of creation, they may never be able to find the magic within themselves. Afraid of a ‘demon’ or ‘devil’ who has the power of magic, how sure can they be who ‘God’ even is? Any ‘being’ may appear to us or seem to speak to us from the outside and say ‘I am God’ and dictate any kind of texts that we take as the absolute word of God. We can see for ourselves whether various religious scriptures have been able to enlighten humankind or create biases, judgments and fear of eternal condemnation.

Have we all been fooled by centuries and centuries of blindness to look for a light outside when all this time the light has always been within?

Those who do look within can begin to awaken now.

 

Nine Ideas That Suggest We Live in a Simulation

Top scientists and philosophers have been debating this topic for quite some time now…wondering whether the universe we live in could be a simulation. Let’s examine the key features of this idea and leave it to you to figure out the rest:

  1. DIVINE SIMULATION: The idea of the universe being some sort of a simulation has been explored in science fiction, literature and philosophy for a long time. Several millennia ago ancient Vedic texts have proposed that the entire universe is a dream like simulation emerging like a lotus from the navel of Narayana or Mahavishnu as he sleeps and dreams up Brahma, and Brahma in turns unleashes the entire universe into repetitive cycles of creation and destruction in each of his days and nights. Fast forward to the 19th century when Edgar Allan Poe once asked, ‘Is all that we see or seem, But a dream within a dream?

2. VIRTUALLY REAL: The 1964 science fiction novel Simulacron-3 by by Daniel F. Galouye brought forward a world of virtual reality where a simulation is so real that the characters within it live human lives just as we do unaware that they are infact simulations. This book became the inspiration for movies such as The Thirteenth Floor that explored the idea of  simulation within a simulation where simulated beings can simulate other universes within their own simulations. If the world really could be some sort of a limited simulation with a digital edge as shown in this movie, what about our own world with its amazing electromagnetic auroras at the poles of our own planet?

3. A CRYOGENIC DREAM: Does simulation necessarily have to be a computerised one? Could our dreams be a simulation. How about the day to day events we engross ourselves in, the places we visit, the adventures we experience? In the 1981 published Simulacra and Simulations, by Jean Baudrillard which was also an inspiration for The Matrix movies, the author writes, ‘ Disneyland is a perfect model of all the entangled orders of simulation. To begin with it is a play of illusions and phantasms: pirates, the frontier, future world, etc…..  By an extraordinary coincidence (one that undoubtedly belongs to the peculiar enchantment of this universe), this deep-frozen infantile world happens to have been conceived and realized by a man who is himself now cryogenized: Walt Disney, who awaits his resurrection at minus 180 degrees centigrade.’ Walt Disney, it turned out, was not actually cryogenized. Yet the 1997 came the film ‘Open Your Eyes‘ featuring a character who is dreaming up his complex ‘reality’ while actually sleeping in a cryogenic state. So could we be in a sleep like state awaiting our awakening while being so attached to this dream like world we are living in?

4. A REALITY SHOW CALLED LIFE: Could we be characters simulated by a higher reality being who is actually having the time of his life watching all of us go through our lives? In the 20th century The Truman Show made many of us imagine we could be watched right now. Frightening? You bet! True? You’ll never know until you find out!

5. THE AI ANGLE: Nick Bostrum in 2003 proposed the Simulation argument based on the idea of a future ‘super-intelligent’ civilisation that could create Artificial Intelligence (AI) of powers so enormous that they could infact simulate worlds much like ours. This made many of us think, what if, we were already in one such simulation and what if we were infact a simulation, with all our ‘naadis’ and ‘chakras’ and our ‘etheric’ blueprint being merely the digital energy channels flowing through our simulated bodies?

6. INTELLIGENT PATTERNS AND LEAPS: Intelligent Design theorists quote the complex and specified information content in DNA (which we now know can store more data than most of our computer systems), and the geologically rapid origin of biological diversity in the fossil record during the Cambrian explosion approximately 530 million years ago to propose that ‘Certain features of the universe and of living things are best explained by an intelligent cause, not an undirected process such as natural selection.’

7. AN EXTERNAL CREATOR: Intelligent Design might have been a disputed theory, but if we look around us there are ample examples of a natural intelligence within the universe, whether it be the fractals of nature or the fibonacci sequence and the golden ratio seen in each growing plant, whether the spores of cauliflowers, spiral leaves or the petals of a flower. The infinite permutations and combinations in nature and the universe seem to be a play of numbers. Creationists try to use this as an excuse to propose that there is an ‘external’ God being who has created the entire world through this intelligent design. Could the 216 lettered or numbered name of ‘God’ be really hidden in the ‘fibonacci’ cube of Metatron. On the other hand Simulation Theorists hold that keeping God aside, nature has indications that we might be living in a complex life like computer simulation created by a higher intelligence which is no more divine than it is AI. In either case the universe does seem to be a mathematical wonder to say the least.

8. SELF-SIMULATED MIND REALITY: The New Age metaphysicist would be likely to agree that the Law of Attraction does work and we all do seem to somehow manifest our life experiences through our conscious as well as subconscious thoughts. Decades ago this was called ‘witchcraft’ and believed to be an ‘occult’ power possessed by some individual ‘witches’ and ‘wizards’ who could change reality at will. Today we are all discovering our our inner power and attract love, health, success and money our way. Well if we do seem to be able to change the permutations and combinations of our life from moment to moment through mindfulness then what does it tell us about the nature of our reality? Could it be a simulation fed through our own minds, somewhat like those latest AI websites that self-design based on the text content that you feed in? Is our conscious and subconscious mind constantly providing the data to this ‘project’ called the universe?

9. ARE WE THE ULTIMATE DIVINE CREATOR: If the world is a simulation created through our minds as we have the power within to change any aspect of our life at will, could we infact be the ultimate higher world simulators of our own reality projecting mentally in this lower world. Is our Higher Self the Creator itself who is dreaming up this entire universe including our own lower existences in these infinite incarnations and reincarnations from time to time and place to place. Could meditation be the way we literally ‘wake up’ our inner ‘Narayana’ whose subconscious messages we are channelling all the time in the form of this energy called existence. After all the dreamer and the dream are no different. It’s the dreamers own subconscious that becomes his or her dream and even sends messages to help him or her awaken. Perhaps the divine lotus of this ‘divine’ dream-world is our own Sahasrara or crown chakra which becomes the ‘flower’ of life and the fibonacci pattern of the universe, leading us back to the wormhole or ‘vishnu naabhi’ – the navel of creation? Back to our real self!
