*Brahman is a concept from Indian spiritual philosophy, it's referred to in quotes throughout this site.

Uniting with God is the objective of mysticism, the heart of spirituality.

Self-inquiry (jnana yoga): concentrating on God using key thoughts such as:
Who is? (Who am I?) and God is (I am God)

Surrender and devotion to God (bhakti yoga): synonymous with self-inquiry.


"Know thyself" was a prominent Ancient Egyptian and Greek proverb.

Plotinus was a notable Ancient Greek philosopher who emphasized "the One".

"That inner Self, as the primeval spirit, eternal, ever effulgent, full and infinite Bliss, single, indivisible, whole and living, shines in everyone as the witnessing awareness. That Self in its splendour, shining in the cavity of the Heart as the subtle, pervasive yet unmanifest ether, illumines this universe like the sun....

I am the all-comprehensive witness, the indivisible, homogeneous Brahman, infinite, eternal, being itself, unbroken whole perfection, existence, eternal, pure, enlightened, liberated, and of supreme Bliss."
Adi ShankaraVivekachudamani

Note: The term "God" isn't perfect. At the same time, it seems to be the best one for the concept it's used to describe throughout this site. God in this conception is the infinite, transcendent true Self of all, rather than any finite, individual being.

A logarithmic spiral


NASA image of a spiral galaxy

We perpetually and exponentially grow towards Godliness, oneness, and our true Self and Heart, becoming nobler, i.e. dedicated to universal, world, and inner peace (complete peace, zero amplitude), and stronger (infinite love, infinity frequency), like a logarithmic spiral perpetually and exponentially approaching its origin:

God is ever-present and unchanging.

Life is the phenomenal universe (maya in Indian spiritual philosophy) and perpetually and exponentially growing oneness with God.
(Beings who’re more one with God than humans are, such as the Creator, beings to whom worlds are thoughtforms, solar systems like atoms, and humans like cells, goddesses and gods, angels, legendary, celestial, magical, and other supernatural beings, extraterrestrials, and spirits, exist in higher and more majestic dimensions, such as heavens. Beings who're less one with God than humans are include animals, plants, and minerals. Growth spans across lifetimes through reincarnation.)

This can be compared to a logarithmic (equiangular) spiral, a shape commonly found in nature.

God can be compared to the origin, infinity.
(The origin is the center point that the spiral converges towards, 
ϴ   using the polar equation r = aeb(-ϴ))

And life can be compared to the spiral, which can be seen as a folded wave.

God, oneness, and Truth are complete peace and infinite love, just as the origin is the Heart at which the wave's amplitude approaches zero and its frequency approaches infinity.

"And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."
- Bible

"There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio,
Than are dreamt of in your philosophy."
- Shakespeare, Hamlet

"Oh Wonder of Wonders...Oh Glory of Glories...Mystery of Mysteries! Life is Eternal. Life just IS...and EVER SHALL IT BE SO!"

Ramana Maharshi compared God, our true Self and Heart, to a movie screen, and the phenomenal universe to the pictures on the movie screen.

Enlightenment



A completely balanced (peace, zero amplitude) and infinitely frequently spinning (love, infinity frequency) UFO (flying saucer) or top (or frisbee)

Complete peace and infinite love are one and the same, and interdependent, infinite love enables complete peace to be imperturbable, and complete peace enables infinite love to be sustainable.


A low amplitude (peace, zero) high frequency (love, infinity) wave

This type of wave being described corresponds to the state of bliss, serene (peace, zero amplitude) ecstasy (love, infinity frequency), which is referred to in the Sanskrit description of God, satcitananda, "existence-consciousness-bliss".

"That which is consciousness alone which is all-pervading, which is eternal, which is all-full, which is of the form of bliss and which is indestructible, is the only true Brahman."
- Upanishads (Varaha Upanishad)

The highest frequency, and also lowest amplitude, category out of the main categories of brainwaves, gamma brainwaves, correlate with spiritual, transcendental, blissful, meditative, and other optimal mental states. 
Gamma brainwaves video (provides information about gamma brainwaves in the description)
Google images search - gamma brainwaves (for comparison with the image above)

There are also newly discovered brainwaves of even higher frequency such as lambda and hyper-gamma brainwaves that correlate with even more extraordinary spiritual states.

Gamma brainwaves

According to the concept of wave-particle duality, all matter, and therefore all energy as a result of mass-energy equivalence as expressed in Einstein's equation E = mc2, has both wave-like and particle-like properties. The concept of mass-energy equivalence itself says something similar, that energy (frequency, kinetic energy, waves) and mass (particles) are equivalent. According to quantum field theory, particles are excitations (waves) of fields. According to string theory, a candidate for a theory of everything, the fundamental objects of the universe are vibrating (oscillating) (wave-creating) strings. According to the Wave Structure of Matter (WSM), at the fundamental level the universe is composed of waves. These concepts suggest that waves are fundamental to everything including understanding and explaining God.

“Nothing rests, everything moves, everything vibrates.”
- Hermetic Principle of Vibration

"What is the Wave Structure of Matter? It is very simple: It is a description of how waves in quantum space form all the matter of the Universe. Space and its two properties are the origin of everything in the Universe - matter - energy - life. How does this happen? It is because space is the single entity that is fundamental to the Universe. It has not been recognized until recently because space is a quantum space. Before then philosophers and scientists mistakenly sought fundamental entities as a zoo of material particles. These were not only wrong they were not simple. When you replace the notion of discrete material particles with wave structures in space the simplicity appears. In short, there are no particles – only waves"
- Milo Wolff, The Wave Structure of Matter (WSM) and the Origin of the Natural Laws

"If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration."
- Nikola Tesla

"The Self shines by itself as the one boundless ocean of consciousness agitated by waves of thought."
- Yoga Vasistha Sara

Perpetual and Exponential Growth and Empowerment

The perpetual and exponential nature of life's growth that logarithmic spirals demonstrate is corroborated by two other significant phenomena that are discussed on this site, the expansion of the physical universe as a whole, and the stock market and economy.

"Perhaps through untold cycles it moved ever upward through cycles so vast and ancient as to seem comparable with eternity itself, yet ever upwards in ever greater experiences and expressions of Life....

With each new cycle it developed upward, each time developing greater and ever greater awareness of itself....

With each new out-breath Souls would go outward into manifestation, to experience ever greater aspects of creation...and with each new in-breath that which went out would return to its Source, yet vastly greater than when they went forth, in an endless expression of Life, ever upward."

Note: Regarding an "infinitely frequently spinning" UFO or top, technically the speed of light may be the highest tangential speed possible. However, the real measurement being discussed here is frequency, which there doesn't seem to be a highest possible known value for. A wave's frequency is inversely proportional to its wavelength, which there doesn't seem to be a lowest possible known value for (including the Planck length). In the explanation above, the wavelength approaches zero. So it still makes sense to talk about the frequency of a wave approaching infinity as a limit. Throughout this site, "infinitely frequent spin" refers to a theoretical, transcendent limit at which the wavelength approaches zero. And in any case, these maximum and minimum values are only relevant on levels that are already extreme, even if they aren't quite infinite.

Oneness


"Oneness" expresses the Truth in one word.

"Oneness" by definition communicates the interconnectedness of the essence of all things, the half of God and Truth that relates to peace, "all things" in "the essence of all things", all-pervasiveness, breadth, as in the expansion created by extensively interconnecting and networking with others, and zero amplitude.

"Oneness" by definition also communicates the singularity of the essence of all thingsthe half of God and Truth that relates to love, "essence" in "the essence of all things"almightiness, depth, as in the power of singularity of focus and one-pointed concentration, and infinity frequency.

"Oneness" also exemplifies the Truth and its own meaning, interconnecting all the spiritual truths with a single word. This adds a second dimension to its meaning, the first being its definitions, and the second its exemplification.

"Oneness" includes both receiving and giving, peace and love, indicates synergy and equality, and is pure and egoless.

"Oneness", referred to as the "Law of One", according to higher-dimensional sources is the primary (number "one") uni("one")versal law.

"Oneness" is the positive counterpart term for "nonduality" ("not two" [but one], "Advaita"), and the underlying meaning of "bipartisan" ("both parties" [as one]).

"Oneness" summarizes the golden rule (treat others as you want to be treated) in one word.

"Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling"
- Bible

"For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ. For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit."
- Bible

"...we are all members of one body."
- Bible

"That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us"
- Jesus, Bible

"To the seer, all things have verily become the Self: what delusion, what sorrow, can there be for him who beholds that oneness?"
- Upanishads


Equality


Another key value related to God, oneness, and Truth is equality.

Just as one meaning of oneness is identity, the same is true for equality.

The state of equality is implied in the concepts of equalization, equanimity, equilibrium, and equipoise (peace, balance).

The "=" (equals) sign is a key mathematical symbol.


The Omega and the Alpha

   

God is the Omega and the Alpha, the end and the beginning, both the end goal of evolution and beginning source of life at once.

God
Omega       Alpha 
EvolutionCreation
The Creator
Higher-dimensional beings
Humans
Animals
Plants

The breath of God concept correlates similarly, with evolution corresponding to the inhalation of God, and creation with the exhalation of God.

The spiritual concepts of emanation and involution relate to the concept of creation on this site.


The order in the diagram above matches that in the Ancient Greek philosophers' great chain of being.
As the information above suggests, the sun in Plato's Allegory of the Cave matches with God.
(Plato was an ancient Greek philosopher who was a foundational figure for Western philosophy, he was a student of Socrates and teacher of Aristotle)

"I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last."
Bible

"...thus are various beings brought forth from the Imperishable, my friend, and return thither also."
Upanishads (Mundaka Upanishad)

The state of God, oneness, and Truth unites, merges, combines, blends, intermixes, joins, synthesizes, syncretizes, integrates, harmonizes, equalizes, neutralizes, and balances the two fundamental qualities of yin and yang, just as in Aristotle's virtuous mean concept, and the Buddhist Middle Way philosophy. 

"Monks, these two extremes ought not to be practiced by one who has gone forth from the household life. There is addiction to indulgence of sense-pleasures, which is low, coarse, the way of ordinary people, unworthy, and unprofitable; and there is addiction to self-mortification, which is painful, unworthy, and unprofitable.

Avoiding both these extremes, the Tathagata (the Perfect One) has realized the Middle Path"

- Buddha

"Everything in moderation, including moderation"
- Common saying

“Gender is in everything; everything has its Masculine and Feminine Principles; Gender manifests on all planes.”
- Hermetic Principle of Gender

“Everything is Dual; everything has poles, everything has its pair of opposites; like and unlike are the same; opposites are identical in nature, but different in degree’ extremes meet, all truths are but half-truths; all paradoxes may be reconciled.”
- Hermetic Principle of Polarity

"When male and female combine,
all things achieve harmony."
Tao Te Ching

Return-God-Fall-Separation Rhythm
 
              

The return-God-fall-separation rhythm

(For more information about the spiritual planes/bodies, chakras, elements, regions of the body, and cosmology, see the Spiritual Healing page)

Perpetual and exponential growth and empowerment occurs through continuous cycles of remembering and forgetting God, oneness, and Truth, expansion and contraction. Consciousness is grown and strengthened through a yin-yang rhythm of remembering and forgetting God, oneness, and Truth, expansion and contraction, that's like the ebb and flow of ocean waves along the shore, the breathing of lungs, the beating of hearts, and the flapping of wings, in which each new cycle represents a new and more wondrous generation.

Return-God-Fall-Separation Rhythm Examples

- The soul's return to and journey away from God (the soul's return to God is the yin/return phase, the journey away is the yang/fall phase)
(Spiritual explanations commonly describe a process involving the individual soul leaving God, gathering experiences, then returning to God, adding to the whole all that it learned from its journey, this general process is an example of the return-God-fall-separation rhythm. It's found in The Star Maker, the "in-breath" and "out-breath" that it refers to correspond to the yin/return and yang/fall phases of the return-God-fall-separation rhythm.)

- Evolution and creation (evolution is the yin/return phase, creation is the yang/fall phase)

- Cosmic expansion and contraction (a type of evolution and creation, expansion is the yin/return phase, contraction is the yang/fall phase)

Quantum fluctuations (a type of cosmic expansion and contraction, the disappearance of particles into the vacuum state is the yin/return phase, the appearance of particles out of the vacuum state is the yang/fall phase)


The water cycle

Water cycles (evaporation is the yin/return phase, condensation and precipitation are the yang/fall phase)

- The Ages of Man (the ascending phase is the yin/return phase, the descending phase is the yang/fall phase)

    

The life cycle

- Life cycles (birth to young adulthood is the yin/return phase, young adulthood to death is the yang/fall phase)
(In childhood receiving from older generations is preponderant, in adulthood giving to younger generations is preponderant. Childhood is relatively free of responsibilities and carefree, adult life is relatively full of responsibilities and stressful. In childhood socio-politico-economic power is lower, in adulthood socio-politico-economic power is higher. The ascent from childhood to young adulthood is expansive, the decline from young adulthood to old age is contractive. In childhood sexuality and procreation are latent, in adulthood sexuality and procreation are active. Plants, too, start as seeds, grow to maturity, then bear fruits and more seeds. The spring, summer, fall, and winter of our lives correspond to the stages of the life cycle. The Indian concept of samsara, the cycle of birth and death, relates to the return-God-fall-separation nature of the life cycle.)

- The blooming and withering of flowers (a type of life cycle, the blooming is the yin/return phase, the withering is the yang/fall phase)
        
    

The yearly cycle


- Yearly cycles (the time period from the winter solstice to the summer solstice is the yin/return phase, the time period from the summer solstice to the winter solstice is the yang-fall phase)

- Lunar cycles (the time period from the new moon to the full moon is the yin/return phase, the time period from the full moon to the new moon is the yang/fall phase)

- Daily cycles (midnight to noon ["high noon"] is the yin/return phase, noon to midnight is the yang/fall phase)

Stock market and economic cycles (the recovery phase is the yin/return phase, the recessive phase is the yang/fall phase)

Ocean waves (the ebb is the yin/return phase, the flow is the yang/fall phase)

Respiratory cycles (inhalation is the yin/return phase, exhalation is the yang/fall phase)

Cardiac cycles (diastole is the yin/return phase, systole is the yang/fall phase)

Wings flapping (the relaxation of the wings back to the open position is the yin/return phase, the thrust of the wings is the yang/fall phase)
(In general, expansion and relaxation involve a return towards the higher spiritual plane/bodies, chakras, elements, and regions of the body, while contraction and thrust involve a fall towards the lower spiritual planes/bodies, chakras, elements, and regions of the body.)

Fins flapping (same motion as wings flapping)

Rowing (the resetting of the oars is the yin/return phase, the thrust is the yang/fall phase)

Walking (the leg drop is the yin/return phase, the leg lift is the yang/fall phase)

- Masses on springs (the movement of the spring towards the equilibrium position is the yin/return phase, the movement of the spring away from the equilibrium position is the yang/fall phase)

- Pendulums (the swinging of the pendulum back to the vertical position is the yin/return phase, the swinging of the pendulum away from the vertical position is the yang/fall phase)

- Yoyos (the dropping of the yoyo is the yin/return phase, the raising of the yoyo is the yang/fall phase)

Button and string/buzzsaw/whirligig toys (the release of the string is the yin/return phase, the pulling of the string is the yang/fall phase)

You could probably also draw a connection with the rise and fall of civilizations, e.g. the fall of Rome was marked by corruption and debauchery

Nature's time cycles

Time is cyclical. Our analog clocks are arranged as circles, and count secondly cycles, which make up minutely cycles, which make up hourly cycles, which make up daily cycles. Daily cycles make up monthly cycles, which make up yearly cycles, which make up galactic, astrological cycles.

"Being flesh, and viewing Life within limited concepts of flesh, it is impossible for you to see that which is the eternal order, the Grand Cycles of Life, so I will put it into a concept that might let you glimpse a random possibility....

Know that there are cycles within 
cycles, countless smaller cycles that exist within greater cycles...and countless greater cycles 
within each and every Grand Cycle. With the final completion of each Grand Cycle there is 
a cycle of rest within the cosmos, yet it too ends and a new cycle begins. A new cycle for all 
those who had completed their return within the previous Grand Cycle."

Nature's time cycles as a whole follow the return-God-fall-separation rhythm and relate to the spiritual planes/bodies, chakras, elements, and regions of the bodyFor instance, in the widespread ages of man concept (e.g. Greek Ages of Man and Indian Yugas), which relates to astrological/astronomical cycles and Great Years, the Golden Age or Satya Yuga is defined by spirituality and enlightenment, i.e. the higher spiritual planes/bodies, chakras, elements, and regions of the body, while the Iron Age or Kali Yuga is defined by materialism (physicality) and darkness, i.e. the lower spiritual planes/bodies, chakras, elements, and regions of the body.

The return-God-fall-separation rhythm as a logarithmic spiral-like fractal progressing towards equilibrium

This image illustrates the return-God-fall-separation rhythm's progression towards equilibrium. It's a transformed logarithmic spiral, a logarithmic spiral folded further with its equilibrium point at the top. Although this image is finite, the pattern of smaller circles within larger circles continues infinitely in both directions of scale. Just as in the logarithmic spiral, the distance that the cycles deviate from the equilibrium point represents their amplitude, and the number of cycles existing in a fixed unit represents their frequency. And just as in the logarithmic spiral, the equilibrium point represents God, oneness, and Truth, and is the point at which the cycles' amplitude approaches zero and frequency approaches infinity. In this image, amplitude indicates degree of forgetfulness of God, and frequency indicates rate of remembrance of God. Another way of explaining this image is that it's the pattern of falling down, getting back up again, and becoming more infallible and falling (for) less with greater consciousness. Purity (yin, peace) is essential to keeping power (yang, love) balanced (and conversely, power [yang, love] is essential to maintaining purity [yin, peace]). "Power corrupts", without purity, the corrupting influence of power causes beings to fall from the peak state, and socio-politico-economic stability is endangered.

"There is no greater blessing anywhere,
Apart from the gaining of the Self.
Meditate ever on the Self. He, who is the Self,
He indeed is the one all-pervasive Supreme Self —
be aware of this."
Sarvajnanottara Agama

"What distinguishes Keynesians from other economists is their belief in activist policies to reduce the amplitude of the business cycle, which they rank among the most important of all economic problems."

"Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely."

Brainwaves


     

The daily cycle

The meaning of the logarithmic spiral, the return-God-fall-separation rhythm including its manifestation in the daily cycle, and the logarithmic spiral-like fractal image above, are corroborated by the characteristics of the different categories of brainwaves. The lowest amplitude, highest frequency brainwaves correlate with the highest state of consciousness and time of day, while the highest amplitude, lowest frequency brainwaves correlate with the lowest state of consciousness and time of day.

Gamma ≈ 40+ Hz Peak consciousness, e.g. noon
Beta ≈ 40-12 Hz Aroused waking state, e.g. mid-day
Alpha ≈ 12-8 Hz Non-aroused waking state, e.g. morning and evening
Theta ≈ 8-4 Hz Light sleep state, REM sleep, e.g. night
Delta ≈ 4-0 Hz Deep sleep state, unconsciousness, e.g. night

The categories of brainwaves are organized by frequency and also amplitude, with each category the brainwave frequency decreases and the amplitude also increases. In addition to the brainwave categories listed, there are newly discovered brainwaves of even higher frequency such as lambda and hyper-gamma brainwaves that correlate with extraordinary spiritual states.

The wake-sleep cycle follows the return-God-fall-separation rhythm, just as the related daily cycle does.

Waking state
Light sleep state
Deep sleep state

The waking state represents relatively high consciousness, as it's characterized by relative clarity and alertness, while the sleep state represents relatively low consciousness, as it's characterized by relative stupor and drowsiness. The phrases "wake up" and "fall asleep", and the connotations of the terms "awake", "asleep", "dozing", and "snoozing", are notable, Buddha means "the awakened one" (and "the enlightened one").

"Peace is the fruit of activity, not of sleep."
Luxor Temple, Ancient Egypt

This information suggests that to synchronize with the daily cycle, it's ideal to be awake during daylight hours, and asleep during the hours of darkness.

"It is well to be up before daybreak, for such habits contribute to health, wealth, and wisdom."
- Aristotle

"Early to bed and early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise."
- Benjamin Franklin

The cycles described in this section relate to the concept of the Four Directions found in some spiritual belief systems.

1. The concept of receiving and giving, peace and love, female and male, zero amplitude and infinity frequency, together with the return-God-fall-separation rhythm, provides a definitive explanation of the two fundamental qualities of existence that pertain to optimal life, harmony, and balance, which suggests that this is the definitive, underlying meaning of yin and yang (this explanation differs from usual explanations of yin and yang). The yin-yang symbol can be compared to the previous image, with the white half representing omega, yin, receiving, peace, female, and zero amplitude, and the black half representing alpha, yang, giving, love, male, and infinity frequency:

Here are examples of yin and yang energies.

"Everything flows, out and in; everything has its tides; all things rise and fall; the pendulum-swing manifests in everything; the measure of the swing to the right is the measure of the swing to the left; rhythm compensates."

"The drop of water had merged back into the Ocean from which it came, yet it added to that Ocean all that it had become in its journey....

The whole process which it had known was simply one of an endless number of Grand Cycles...the out-breath and the in-breath of the First Cause....

When the Thought had manifested to the very last detail, bringing forth creation as it was to be within that place, including the Souls that were to inhabit it, then the out-breath ceased and the in-breath began...the in-breath, when all Souls within that creation would began their journey back towards their unity with the God-head."
Primordial Void and Unlimited BeingAll-Pervasiveness and AlmightinessZero Amplitude and Infinity Frequency

 



(Continued footnotes to the table in the "Yin and Yang, Receiving and Giving, Peace and Love, Female and Male, and the Middle Way" section above)

The state of God, oneness, and Truth has two fundamental qualities, yin and yang, which are equivalent to receiving and giving, peace and love, female and male, zero amplitude and infinity frequency, and:

2. Primordial void and unlimited being

Zero amplitude means complete smoothness, i.e. zero form. Waveforms are determined largely by the fluctuations in their amplitude, a wave of zero amplitude relates to a flatline, which indicates death (a flatline differs from the state of God, oneness, and Truth in that its frequency isn't infinity). This matches with the concept of a primordial void, as well as with related spiritual concepts such as formlessness, emptiness, and stillness.

"The tao that can be told
is not the eternal Tao.
The name that can be named
is not the eternal Name.

The unnamable is the eternally real."
Tao Te Ching, first lines

In the context of sound waves, zero amplitude means zero loudness/volume. This matches with the silence attributed to saints and sages such as the Buddha and Ramana Maharshi.

The connection between God and voidness also relates to the connection between God and the vacuum of outer space.

3. All-pervasiveness (omnipresence) and almightiness (omnipotence)

- Zero amplitude also means zero oscillation, i.e. complete equilibrium (balance). Amplitude in physics is defined as "the maximum extent of a vibration or oscillation, measured from the position of equilibrium."
- Generally, a system approaches thermodynamic equilibrium as its contents, e.g. heat, molecules, and pressure, disperse (pervade) throughout the whole system equally (in a balanced way).
- In this sense, complete equilibrium means completely equal distribution of energy, or complete dispersion (all-pervasiveness, omnipresence).
- Similarly, complete thermodynamic equilibrium is the state of maximum entropy, which is one of complete dispersion (all-pervasiveness, omnipresence).
- The universe is interconnected, no completely isolated systems exist, which means that true complete equilibrium is a state of complete dispersion throughout the whole universe (all-pervasiveness, omnipresence).
- According to the second law of thermodynamics, the entropy, i.e. dispersion, of the universe constantly increases. Furthermore, according to the Big Bang theory, the expansion of the universe is perpetual and exponential. Since the universe is infinitely expansive, true complete equilibrium is a state of infinite dispersion (all-pervasiveness, omnipresence).

Unlimited being and almightiness (omnipotence)

Infinity frequency means infinite energy and power. Higher frequency waves are higher in energy, for instance gamma rays are higher in energy than radio waves. The direct relationship between a photon's energy and frequency levels is expressed in the Planck-Einstein relation, E=hf, this relationship is generalized to all matter in the de Broglie relation, p=hfAlso, the physics definitions of frequency and power are related, both measure activity concentration, specifically activity per unit of time, frequency measures cycles per unit of time, and power measures work per unit of time. The infinity frequency, i.e. infinite energy and power, of God explains the reason for concepts such as those of unlimited being and almightiness (omnipotence).

-

God is described as the heart/essence/source (depth) of all things (breadth). All-pervasiveness (omnipresence) and zero amplitude correspond to breadth. Almightiness (omnipotence) and infinity frequency correspond to depth, the higher, inner, deeper spiritual planes/bodies are higher in frequency.

"It [Brahman] contains no disequilibrium. It is still, like a waveless ocean. It is eternal, formless, spotless, incomparable, ever free, indestructible, pure, without beginning."
- Adi Shankara, Vivekachudamani

"There is only the one waveless and profound ocean of pure nectar, sweet through and through (i.e. blissful) everywhere."

Perpetual Motion

 



(Continued footnotes to the table in the "Yin and Yang, Receiving and Giving, Peace and Love, Female and Male, and the Middle Way" section above)

4. God is the one true example and source of perpetual motion, the ideal, perfectly efficient and infinitely powerful life-giving being to aspire to match, such as for collectives, individual souls, and machines such as energy generators and UFOs.

God, the theoretical, transcendent ideal, as represented by the origin of a logarithmic spiral and a completely balanced and infinitely frequently spinning UFO or top, is of:

1) Perfect efficiency: zero amplitude, i.e. complete balance (equilibrium), complete peace, complete smoothness, zero friction (drag, viscosity, etc.) in the sense of conflict and energy dissipation (completely smooth surfaces don't dissipate energy through friction), zero vibration (oscillation around an equilibrium point causing energy dissipation)

2) Infinite power: infinity frequency, i.e. infinitely frequent spin, infinite love, infinite energy

In contrast, the reason why no incomplete, finite entity can achieve perpetual motion is that:

1) No incomplete and finite entity is perfectly efficient. As stated in the second law of thermodynamics, the entropy of isolated systems always increases over time. Due to irreversible energy dissipation, such as through friction and heat, all closed (finite), not-perfectly efficient systems eventually run out of energy without an external energy source.

2) No incomplete and finite entity is infinitely powerful. As stated in the first law of thermodynamics, the change in energy of closed (finite) systems is determinate, and equal to the amount of energy supplied to a system minus the amount expended by it. Due to the law of conservation of energy, all closed (finite), not-infinitely powerful systems eventually run out of energy without an external energy source.

Regarding UFOs, it makes complete sense that the technology of spiritually and scientifically advanced extraterrestrials capable of space travel aims for the state of both God and perpetual motion.

Regarding perfect efficiency and frictionlessness, the vacuum of outer space which corresponds to God and spirit is basically frictionless.

Destiny and Free Will

   

(Continued footnotes to the table in the "Yin and Yang, Receiving and Giving, Peace and Love, Female and Male, and the Middle Way" section above)

5. Truth, a matter of oneness, self-consistency, and objectivity, is often a combination of perspectives and middle between extremes, rather than one or the other. This is the case regarding the issue of destiny vs. free will. The truth is both destiny and free will (compatibilism), destined free will and free willed destiny, both surrender and devotion to God, surrender with devotion and devotion with surrender. The universe is orderly, not random ("everything happens for a reason"), and unfolding in complete accordance with eternal, immutable laws, though the laws, being infinite in scope, will never be fully known. So destiny exists, and it's appropriate to gratefully receive it and surrender to God. At the same time, we're also conscious agents with the freedom and power to choose, though the laws explain and predict behavior, they don't control, impose, or force it. So free will too exists, and it's also appropriate to lovingly (passionately) give of ourselves and devote ourselves to God.

Note: The main idea of this section regarding destined free will and surrender with devotion is valid even if the standard interpretation of quantum mechanics, which says that at the quantum level the universe functions probabilistically, i.e. randomly, is true. Universal laws still explain and predict events including our choices to the extent that it's possible to explain and predict them at all, so God-determined destiny still exists. And to the extent that events are random, they aren't caused by anything, including us.

“Every Cause has its Effect; every Effect has its Cause; everything happens according to Law; Chance is but a name for Law not recognized; there are many planes of causation, but nothing escapes the Law.”

Socio-Politico-Economics

(Continued footnotes to the table in the "Yin and Yang, Receiving and Giving, Peace and Love, Female and Male, and the Middle Way" section above)

6. The state of God, oneness, and Truth unites, merges, combines, blends, intermixes, joins, synthesizes, syncretizes, integrates, harmonizes, equalizes, neutralizes, and balances the best parts of communal and individualistic values. In the state of oneness, the community and individual converge into one, as in the saying, "One for all, all for one". Oneness (with all) means both harmony (with all) and identity (with the One All) at once. Oneness means both interconnection and singularity at once. Similarly, oneness, including on the level of the individual, means both (1) togetherness, cocreation, collaboration, cooperation, coordination, combination, and interdependence (community) and (2) altogetherness, wholeness, totalness, entireness, completeness, absoluteness, and independence (sovereign individuality), at once. The concept of holons, which describes units in unions as both parts and wholes at once, is similar. Accordingly, community and individuality too correspond to yin and yang, receiving and giving, peace and love, etc., just as communal lifestyles tend to focus on peace, while individualistic lifestyles tend to focus on love (passion).

7. The state of God, oneness, and Truth unites and equalizes the best parts of left and right-wing politics, and left and right-wing politics too correspond to yin and yang, etc., just as left-wing politics tends to be based on communal values, while right-wing politics tends to be based on individualistic values. It's notable that politics tends towards an equilibrium between the left and right, and aspires for nonpartisan/bipartisan action.

8. Left-wing politics are generally considered liberal, and right-wing conservative. these terminologies are chosen largely in relation to the traditional masculine, right-wing establishment, which it’s the conservative position to preserve, and the liberal one to break free from. From a universal perspective, on the whole actually the position that relates to peace, community, and left-wing politics is the conservative, passive, preservative one, while the position that relates to love (passion), individuality, and right-wing politics is the liberal, active, unrestrictive one. Although these terminologies are appropriate in that the yin, left-wing energy is more expansive (liberal), while the yang, right-wing energy is more contractive (conservative). It's notable that the United States Democratic Party, the left-wing, liberal United States political party, used to be the conservative United States political party, while the United States Republican Party, the right-wing, conservative United States political party, used to be the liberal one. Also, the right-wing party in Japan is called the Liberal Democratic Party.

9. The state of God, oneness, and Truth unites and equalizes the best parts of communism/socialism and capitalism, and communism/socialism and capitalism too correspond to yin and yang, etc., just as communism/socialism is based on communal values, relates to left-wing politics, and focuses on equality (equilibrium), optimum receiving, and issues related to buying/demand, while capitalism is based on individualistic values, relates to right-wing politics, and focuses on abundance, optimum giving, and issues related to selling/supply. It's notable that successful modern socio-politico-economic systems, including those in China and the US, mix both communist/socialist and capitalist qualities, while extreme forms of both communism/socialism and capitalism have proved unsuccessful. 

10. The state of God, oneness, and Truth unites and equalizes buying and selling, demand and supplyIdeally economic growth is steady, and remains close to the equilibrium, balanced, healthy, peak state, rather than undergoing dramatic ups and downs as in volatile stock market and boom and bust economic cycles, which are another manifestation of the return-God-fall-separation rhythm. The bull and bear phases of stock market cycles and recovery and recession phases of economic cycles ("recovery" referring to upwards phases as a whole and "recession" to downwards phases as a whole) too correspond to yin and yang, etc., just as typical graphs of stock market and economic cycles look something like this:


The stock market and economic cycle

Emotions related to the higher spiritual planes/bodies, chakras, elements, and regions of the body such as euphoria correlate with the cycles' peaks, and emotions related to the lower spiritual planes/bodies, chakras, elements, and regions of the body such as fear and greed are responsible for the cycles' valleys. In the upwards phase of stock market and economic cycles, the yin qualities of buying and demand predominate, and economic activity and prices increase, the yin quality of fear predominates and transforms into the yang counterpart quality of desire, while in the downwards phase, the yang counterpart qualities of selling and supply predominate, and economic activity and prices decrease, the yang quality of desire predominates and transforms into the yin quality of fear. It's notable that both the United States' Great Recession of 2008 and Great Depression of the 1930s were preceded by periods of extreme excess.

"As markets pick up and the economy enters a positive phase, our natural state of reluctance diminishes. Enough good news stories about successful investments, and friends telling you how well they’ve done in the markets, and our fear of failure quickly turns into a fear of missing out. Our natural aversion to loss may now cause us to take action to increase short-term emotional comfort, this time by entering the market. This now feels comfortable because we’re with the herd, not against it; and because the sustained period of positive results has helped to blur our recollections of losses and perceptions of risk (ironically, just when markets have furthest to fall). The more psychologically immediate loss is now the thought of not getting great returns when everyone around you is profiting from their investments.

So at the top, investors often have high expectations and decisions have a high emotional component. When reality starts to intervene, investors start to shield themselves psychologically from the bad news, and move into denial. This reluctance to sell often has the effect of keeping markets artificially high for a while, allowing the bad news to accumulate. No one wants to sell at a loss and so instead of falling, volumes dry up. This is particularly evident in markets... which have a strong emotional component – that is, residential property. But sooner or later some investors will be forced to sell, bursting the dam and precipitating falling prices. Investors then move on from denial to fear, desperation and panic."

"But during a recession, strong forces often dampen demand as spending goes down. For example, during economic downturns uncertainty often erodes consumer confidence, causing them to reduce their spending, especially on discretionary purchases like a house or a car. This reduction in spending by consumers can result in less investment spending by businesses, as firms respond to weakened demand for their products."

"What is the 'Economic Cycle'
The economic cycle is the natural fluctuation of the economy between periods of expansion (growth) and contraction (recession). Factors such as gross domestic product (GDP), interest rates, levels of employment and consumer spending can help to determine the current stage of the economic cycle....

BREAKING DOWN 'Economic Cycle'
An economic cycle, also referred to as the business cycle, has four stages: expansion, peak, contraction and trough. During the expansion phase, the economy experiences relatively rapid growth, interest rates tend to be low, production increases and inflationary pressures build. The peak of a cycle is reached when growth hits its maximum output. Peak growth typically creates some imbalances in the economy that need to be corrected. This correction occurs through a period of contraction when growth slows, employment falls and prices stagnate. The trough of the cycle is reached when the economy hits a low point in growth from which a recovery can begin.

What Causes the Economic Cycle?
This wide variation in cycle length dispels the myth that economic cycles can die of old age. However, there is some debate as to what causes cycles to exist in the first place. The monetarist school of economic thought ties the economic cycle to the credit cycle. Changes in interest rates can reduce or induce economic activity by making borrowing to households, businesses and the government more or less expensive. The Keynesian approach argues that changes in aggregate demand, spurred by inherent instability and volatility in investment demand, is responsible for generating cycles. Adding to the complexity of interpreting business cycles, other famed economists, such as Irving Fisher, argued that there no such thing as equilibrium and therefore, cycles exist because the economy naturally shifts across a range of disequilibrium as producers constantly over- or under-invest and over- or under-produce as they try to match ever-changing consumer demands."

"When supply and demand are equal (i.e. when the supply function and demand function intersect) the economy is said to be at equilibrium. At this point, the allocation of goods is at its most efficient because the amount of goods being supplied is exactly the same as the amount of goods being demanded. Thus, everyone (individuals, firms, or countries) is satisfied with the current economic condition. At the given price, suppliers are selling all the goods that they have produced and consumers are getting all the goods that they are demanding....

In the real market place equilibrium can only ever be reached in theory, so the prices of goods and services are constantly changing in relation to fluctuations in demand and supply....

If the price is set too high, excess supply will be created within the economy and there will be allocative inefficiency....

The suppliers are trying to produce more goods, which they hope to sell to increase profits, but those consuming the goods will find the product less attractive and purchase less because the price is too high.

Excess demand is created when price is set below the equilibrium price. Because the price is so low, too many consumers want the good while producers are not making enough of it....

Thus, there are too few goods being produced to satisfy the wants (demand) of the consumers. However, as consumers have to compete with one other to buy the good at this price, the demand will push the price up, making suppliers want to supply more and bringing the price closer to its equilibrium."

"What is the 'Law of Supply and Demand'
The law of supply and demand is a theory that explains the interaction between the supply of a resource and the demand for that resource. The theory defines the effect that the availability of a particular product and the desire (or demand) for that product has on its price. Generally, low supply and high demand increase price. In contrast, the greater the supply and the lower the demand, the price tends to fall.

BREAKING DOWN 'Law of Supply and Demand'
The law of supply and demand, one of the most basic economic laws, ties into almost all economic principles in some way. In practice, supply and demand pull against each other until the market finds an equilibrium price....

How Do Supply and Demand Create an Equilibrium Price?
Also called a market-clearing price, the equilibrium price is the price at which the producer can sell all the units he wants to produce and the buyer can buy all the units he wants.

For a simple illustration of how supply and demand determine equilibrium price, imagine a business launching a new product. It sets a high price, but only a few consumers buy it. The business anticipated selling more units, but due to lack of interest, it has warehouses full of the product. Due to the high supply, the business lowers the product price. Demand increases, but as the supply dwindles, the business raises the price until it finds the perfect, or equilibrium, price to balance its product supply with consumer demand.

Do Supply and Demand Only Affect Prices?
The law of supply and demand does not apply just to prices. It also can be used to describe other economic activity. For example, if unemployment is high, there is a large supply of workers. As a result, businesses tend to lower wages. Conversely, when unemployment is low, the supply of workers is also low, and as a result, to entice workers, employers tend to offer higher salaries. Similarly, in the world of stock investing, the law of supply and demand can help to explain a stock's price at any given time."

"Demand
Demand is driven by utility – the pleasure or satisfaction that a consumer obtains from consuming a good or service....

Consumers maximize their utility by consuming up to the point where the marginal utility is at zero....

The curve of aggregate demand is downward-sloping, as demand declines as prices increase....

Supply
The counterpart to aggregate demand is aggregate supply – the total amount of goods and services that are produced in an economy at a given price level....

Firms maximize their profits by producing up to the point where the marginal revenue of the next good sold is equal to the marginal cost of producing it....

When supply and demand are equal (when the two curves intersect), the market is said to be in equilibrium. At all times, both consumers and producers look to maximize their utility. Consumers maximize their utility by consuming goods with a positive marginal utility; suppliers maximize their utility by producing goods and services where the marginal revenue is greater than the marginal cost."

"Stage 1: Pessimism
As the market cycle enters the accumulation stage after suffering from a decline in prices, many investors simultaneously enter the pessimistic phase of the emotional cycle. During the accumulation stage, asset values begin to consolidate and investors still perceive the market as bearish and are hesitant to buy. Investors believe the downtrend of market value is permanent and do not want to subject themselves to hope after having just lost their position within the market. They fear rejoining the market and experiencing further loss more than they fear missing out on the start of a new bull market.

Stage 2: Optimism
Seeing that the market cycle is transitioning into a markup phase, where prices continue an uptrend momentum, investors begin to shrug off their leftover despondency from the last cycle. Due to the actions of investors in the accumulation stage who invested in stocks at or near the market lows, the markets start experiencing higher highs and higher lows. The market is once again viewed as an optimal opportunity, and investors excitedly begin to invest again as they regain confidence in the market’s potential for returns.

Stage 3: Euphoria
Prices hit their highs, and while some investors are distributing their shares through selling, remaining investors celebrate their choice to participate in the uptrend and feel comfortable investing in additional assets. This coincides with the distribution stage of the market cycle. It appears as if the bull market will never end, and investors in the market will blindly push forward and position themselves at a point of high risk to simply prolong the feeling of success.

Stage 4: Fear
While remaining investors are reveling in their euphoria, the market begins a somewhat volatile downtrend due to the markdown of prices, the final stage of the market cycle. As the decline continues, doubt begins to creep into investors’ mindsets and eventually develops into full blown panic. Not wanting to sell at a loss, many investors hold onto their assets for too long and set themselves up for a delayed inevitability - having to sell aggressively as a way to relieve themselves of coping with the fear and anxiety of their holding’s performance, or lack thereof."

11. Spirituality provides guidelines for action, including with regards to socio-politico-economics. During yin/return phases, to increase movement towards the balanced state of God, oneness, and Truth more giving is appropriate, while during yang/fall phases, to reduce movement away from the balanced state of God, oneness, and Truth more letting go is appropriate. The concept of “buy low, sell high” is similar, it’s advantageous to invest in markets that will rise, and divest from ones that will fall. Similarly, recovering markets involve increased investment and demand for capital, while recessive markets involve decreased investment and demand for capital.

"Managing the Economic Cycle
The economic or business cycle is managed by the government. The biggest tool at its disposal to control the cycle is fiscal policy. In order to end a recession, the government will employ expansionary fiscal policy, and conversely, it will use contractionary fiscal policy to stop the economy from overheating.

Central banks will use monetary policy in order to help manage and control the economic cycle. When the cycle hits the trough, a central bank will lower interest rates or implement expansionary monetary policy. When it raises rates, or uses contractionary monetary policy, it manages an economic expansion to prevent it from peaking."


12. The state of God, oneness, and Truth unites and equalizes femininity and masculinity, another pair of qualities that are synonymous with yin and yang, etc. It's notable that communal lifestyles, left-wing politics, and communism/socialism tend to relate to feminine values, while individualistic lifestyles, right-wing politics, and capitalism tend to relate to masculine values.

13. The state of God, oneness, and Truth unites and equalizes the best parts of the alternative (alternative lifestyles movement) and main streams, and the alternative and main streams too correspond to yin and yang, etc., just as the alternative-stream tends to relate to peace, community, left-wing politics, communism/socialism, and femininity, while the mainstream tends to relate to love (passion), individuality, right-wing politics, capitalism, and masculinity.

14. The state of God, oneness, and Truth unites and equalizes the best parts of Eastern and Western lifestyles, and Eastern and Western lifestyles too correspond to yin and yang, etc., just as the alternative-stream tends to be influenced by Eastern philosophies, values, and lifestyles, which tend to focus on peace and community, while the mainstream Earth establishment is headquartered in the West, which tends to focus on love (passion) and individuality, and just as Eastern cultures are strongly associated with female goddesses such as Amaterasu, Mother Earth in the Native American tradition (scientists believe Native Americans originally migrated from Asia), and Quan Yin, while Western cultures are strongly associated with male gods such as Jehovah (Yahweh), Thor, and Zeus. This could help explain the distribution of humans on Earth, that humans and the masculine, mainstream Earth establishment originated in the West, just as scientists believe humans originated in Africa, and the most feminine, alternative-oriented groups migrated the furthest away, to East Asia and beyond. It's notable that communist/socialist nations have historically tended to have been relatively Eastern ones such as China and the Soviet Union, while capitalism has historically been associated with relatively Western nations such as England and the US.

"The unity of government which constitutes you one people is also now dear to you. It is justly so, for it is a main pillar in the edifice of your real independence, the support of your tranquility at home, your peace abroad; of your safety; of your prosperity; of that very liberty which you so highly prize.... it is of infinite moment that you should properly estimate the immense value of your national union to your collective and individual happiness; that you should cherish a cordial, habitual, and immovable attachment to it; accustoming yourselves to think and speak of it as of the palladium of your political safety and prosperity; watching for its preservation with jealous anxiety; discountenancing whatever may suggest even a suspicion that it can in any event be abandoned; and indignantly frowning upon the first dawning of every attempt to alienate any portion of our country from the rest, or to enfeeble the sacred ties which now link together the various parts....

The name of American, which belongs to you in your national capacity, must always exalt the just pride of patriotism more than any appellation derived from local discriminations. With slight shades of difference, you have the same religion, manners, habits, and political principles. You have in a common cause fought and triumphed together; the independence and liberty you possess are the work of joint counsels, and joint efforts of common dangers, sufferings, and successes....

I have already intimated to you the danger of parties in the State, with particular reference to the founding of them on geographical discriminations. Let me now take a more comprehensive view, and warn you in the most solemn manner against the baneful effects of the spirit of party generally....

...the common and continual mischiefs of the spirit of party are sufficient to make it the interest and duty of a wise people to discourage and restrain it."

Circles


A circle

Circles are divine.

God, oneness, and Truth are related to the numbers one (oneness), zero (zero amplitude), which is similar to the inverse of infinity, 1/∞, and infinity (infinity frequency), at once. The same is true for circles, circles are the shapes whose number of sides is, depending on how you look at it, one (one continuous, smooth circumference), zero (zero vertices), and infinity (a circle is the shape a regular polygon approaches as a limit as its number of sides approaches infinity), at once.

Circles symbolize equality, all points on a circle are equidistant from the center, and circles are related to regular polygons, which are equiangular and equilateral.

Circles are the shapes implied in the concept of "cycles", including wave cycles, the energy flow-related concepts of "circulation", such as of currency, and "circuit", such as of electric current, and in the concepts "well-rounded" and "full circle".

Circles are the shape used to indicate the number "0", and also the letter "O", which happens to be the first letter of the word "Oneness".


Creation, with Thought


Creation

This pattern has circular, fractal, holonic, isometric (equality-based), and sixfold properties, many natural phenomena such as snowflakes have sixfold properties. Although the image is finite, the pattern continues infinitely in both directions of scale, and each circle grows with time. The image isn't drawn to scale. The largest circle can represent our Creator's Creator, the second largest circles can represent beings like our Creator, the third largest can represent beings like us, and the fourth can represent beings like our creations including our thoughtforms (dreams). We're created by our Creator through thought, our thoughtforms have real energetic substance and consciousness and can grow to create thoughtforms of their own, and so on. The pattern is also analagous to some of the relationships in the physical universe, in which electrons orbit protons, and moons orbit planets, which orbit stars, which orbit centers of star systems, which orbit galactic centers, which orbit centers of galaxy groups and clusters (though it differs in that in this pattern spirit and lightness are central, while with orbits caused by gravity, matter and denseness are central).

Breath of Life moved out into the Cosmos....

There I would bring forth planets, Galaxies, and Star Systems., and I would be the 
"Father" of your creation, just as another had been mine....

Perhaps...and just perhaps...a trillion aeons ago I sought to know The Starmaker, only to become The Starmaker...wherein I not only created Stars, but a universe full of potential Starmakers. And so it would go...on into Eternity...Worlds without end....

So too did the past Starmakers create the present Starmakers. So too do the present Starmakers now create future Starmakers...and so it would go...Worlds Without End."

"In the beginning Brahman was all this. He was one, and infinite; infinite in the East, infinite in the South, infinite in the West, infinite in the North, above and below and everywhere infinite. East and the other regions do not exist for him, nor across, nor below, nor above. The Highest Self is not to be fixed, he is unlimited, unborn, not to be reasoned about, not to be conceived. He is like the ether (everywhere), and at the destruction of the universe, he alone is awake. Thus from that ether he wakes all this world, which consists of thought only, and by him alone is all this meditated on, and in him it is dissolved."

Spirituality, Philosophy, Math, and Physics

   

God alone is absolutely real, or true, as Advaita Vedanta philosophy asserts.

Qualities such as whole, complete, perfect, total, entire, ultimate, final, absolute, supreme, and definitive pertain only to the infinite, as finite, formful, changing entities are necessarily limited, and able to be improved unto infinity.

Similarly, Godel’s incompleteness theorems demonstrate that all formal axiomatic systems are incomplete, there will always be truths that exist beyond the scope of any such finite system.

Presumably, especially considering the relationship between the infinite and finite entities in general, this applies to physics theories. In physics, there's a quest for a Theory of Everything that explains everything in the universe. While physics theories have accomplished amazing things, and while there are surely beautiful, powerful physics theories out there waiting to be discovered, it’s not possible to achieve a complete explanation of everything in the universe. There's currently a search for a theory that will reconcile general relativity with quantum mechanics, which themselves superseded the earlier system of Newtonian classical mechanics, which itself was groundbreaking when it was first formulated. This discovery process towards greater levels of precision and complexity will continue unto infinity.

For these reasons, while the Theory of Everything above may not be as technical and complex as usual physics Theory of Everythings, it's notable in that it's a theory about the infinite, which enables it to be a true explanation of everything.

The explanations on this site are theories, not proofs. They explain a lot which gives cause for confidence that they're true, however like with other scientific theories, the proof exists in experience and experiments that confirm them, not in the theories themselves.

Uniting Yin and Yang, the Political Left and Right, the Divine Feminine and Masculine


 




Indian spiritual philosophy is referenced many times on this site, while parts of it are elucidating, some of the beliefs associated with it aren't true, which is important to know.


Here are some examples:


- Consciousness expansion occurs perpetually and exponentially (never beginning, never ending), it's not possible for the incomplete and finite individual to reach life's complete and infinite goal. Similarly, the goal is approached by concentrating on the present moment, rather than by aiming for a future state outside of the present moment.


- The state of God and Truth is one of oneness and equality with the universe, involving letting go of and giving to, rather than rejecting, the world. Similarly, the phenomenal universe is an extension of spirit, and it's appropriate to attend to it, it's not to be neglected. Similarly, while the state of God, oneness, and Truth is a state of purity, it's also a state of wealth, rather than impoverishment.


- The state of God, oneness, and Truth unites and equalizes yin and yang, the political left and right, the Divine Feminine and Masculine. Yang, right-wing, masculine qualities too are essential.

- The state of God, oneness, and Truth is one of low amplitude (peace) and high frequency (love), there are problems with some of the information out there regarding concepts from Indian spiritual philosophy, the states of consciousness such as waking and sleeping, and brainwaves.


"Foolish you say? Surely, as a lowly being seeking for understanding you will never become a Starmaker. Look around yourself! Look at Life as it ever moves forward. Life never stagnates or stands still. So where would you have it stop? At what point would you say: "I am finally there...I have reached the totality of my expression, of all that I can ever be. This is my highest expression, therefore I will remain here forever, without change"....

If you have now begun to see that which I have said, you might ask: "But a trillion aeons hence, what of the next out-breath? When My Sons and Daughters are as I am now...what will I be? What will that next cycle hold as My expression?"

I can not say, for I am here now, just as I AM. But Eternity! Oh, wonder of wonders! Life IS Eternal! It has ALWAYS BEEN and will EVER BE...for there exists that mystery of mysteries, the First Cause behind all that IS.

As for those eternal cycles beyond creation....they are known only to those who have gone through them in eternity past. They are presently incomprehensible to Me, even as the First Cause is ever beyond all comprehension, even to them...for it simply IS the unfathomable Cause behind all That IS...without beginning....without end."

May this knowledge help to create the state of God, oneness, and Truth, complete peace and infinite love.
