In the beginning there was the void. Then, there was the universe.
The current descriptive theory of that still unfolding event is called ‘The Big Bang’.
You could also say that, once upon a no-time, there was no universe, and then suddenly, there was time and space. Somehow, it happened or got created. How and why? Science is still theorizing about that.
Once upon a time, you were not here. Now you are. Somehow that happened. Sure, I know that sperm fertilized egg to make zygote and then it kept dividing and multiplying until your body was formed and you slid out the birth canal to show up on planet earth. That is how you were enabled to get a body to hang out here with the rest of us and to experience this journey; but how did the you that inhabits your body show up? And why?
You might be of the opinion that you showed up here simply because of a random biochemical event. You might be of the opinion that you showed up here because of some deity’s plan. In other words, it was either an accident or according to someone else’s purpose.
I am of the opinion that you chose to come here for your own purposes, according to your own plan. The how is because of vibrational affinity. You were drawn or attracted here by something that you are aligned with or are in harmony with. The why is for you to decide. Maybe, you already have.
My why is, “to revere, relish and contribute”. For me, that translates to:
To revere is to be awestruck by the beauty and complexity of creation— to hold all things, including myself as ‘sacred’. To Love. To Esteem. To stand in reverence.
To relish is to enjoy: to participate whole-heartedly in the experience of being alive on planet earth. To be Joyful. To be Grateful.
To contribute is to self-actualize my potential to be of service to my fellow human creatures. To be Causal. To leave a legacy.
When I was born into this world, I was so overwhelmed by the experience that I was struck dumb and could not speak for many months. A joke, perhaps; but so many people have been so overwhelmed by the physical experience of being alive that they have been struck dumb, so to speak, and have forgotten the essential truth that all things physical arise out of the metaphysical.
The physical is so intricate and wondrous that it entices people to be so caught up in it that they do not see that it is merely the effect and the cause is the metaphysical.
It is my hope that you too will come to see the why of your life as being to revere, relish and contribute.
However, I’ll leave the why up to you and the rest of this treatise will deal with the how… how it all happens.
Science is an attempt to understand the forces that act upon the world to bring about our reality. It looks closely at the physical in order to divine the metaphysical, often, in the case of many individual scientists, without even realizing it.
Modern sciences, especially quantum physics and cosmology, are starting to sound a lot like metaphysics. Advances in molecular biology (DNA sequencing) and nano-technology are getting close to providing us with a real philosopher’s stone, the ancient quest of metaphysicians, which will enable us to transmute matter at its basic level. Systems theory and ecology are enabling us to comprehend the intricacy and interdependence of all things in all places and all times.
We are poised, as a species, on a threshold. We are about to become conscious creators. Like the butterfly, we will mutate to leave the creature/caterpillar behind.
This information age we are passing through right now is like the cocoon from which we will awake to fly into the age of conscious awareness.
The Biosphere facilitated the Infosphere. The Infosphere will facilitate the Noosphere elucidated by Teilhard de Chardin.
Once upon a time, there was no Biosphere, then, suddenly, there was.
Once upon a time, there was no Infosphere, then, suddenly, there was.
Once upon a time, there was no Noosphere, then, suddenly…
You woke up!
Everything in the entire universe, big and small, visible and invisible, is composed of energy.
Quarks and quasars, gluons and galaxies, protons and persons, molecules and minds, sunsets and sensations, electrons and eBooks, anything and everything, are all composed of energy. All matter is composed of energy. In order to properly understand the nature of reality, what matters is not matter, itself, but the energy that enables it.
In other words, in order to accurately know a thing, anything, including yourself, you must understand the energy that enables it to exist.
Energy is comprised of coherent vibrations or waveforms.
According to modern physics, the energy that enables the universe to exist has been subdivided into four categories; weak nuclear force, strong nuclear force, electromagnetism, and gravity.
Weak nuclear force determines the behaviour of quantum particles like quarks that make up atomic particles like protons and neutrons. Without his force there would be no coherence of atomic nuclei. You would not exist without it. Neither would anything else. Weak nuclear force is therefore a coherent vibration.
Strong nuclear force holds the nucleus of atoms, neutrons and protons, together. Without this force, you would have no atomic coherence and would not exist. Neither would anything else. Strong nuclear force is a coherent vibration.
Electromagnetism is the force that determines the behaviour of charged particles like the electron and magnetized particles like ions. Without his force, there would be no molecular coherence and you would not exist and neither would anything else. Electromagnetism is a coherent vibration.
Gravity is the force that holds galaxies together, holds the earth in orbit around the sun and holds your body to this planet. Without it, nothing would exist. Gravity is a coherent vibration.
What permits or enables the existence of the universe and everything in it, including you, is, therefore, coherent vibration or harmony. Creation happens because of harmonics. The how of creation is the expression of harmony.
The universe and everything in it, including you, is comprised or made up of harmonic waveforms.
A waveform or vibration is characterized, or is measurable and definable, by amplitude, periodicity, frequency and shape.
Amplitude is the size of the waveform. Periodicity is the length of time a waveform exists or occurs.
Frequency is how often a waveform repeats or recurs within a given period of time. Shape is the form that the wave takes as it moves thru time and space. Some waves change. Some stay the same.
These waves that stay the same are often called standing waves or solitons. They have more coherence than the changeling or mutable waveforms.
I can almost hear you thinking, “What on earth is he on about and why all this stuff about physics, waves and such?”
I am going to assume that you would prefer to have a life that goes your way. That is to say, you would like to be happy and successful. That means that you will need to learn how to create events, circumstances and conditions in your life that are in tune with your aspirations for yourself.
So, you need to learn how creation works in order to become an effective creator. In order to manifest that which you desire in life, you will need to apply the same rules that are used for all creation.
So, getting back to reality… amplitude and shape are space related aspects of waves; and periodicity and frequency are time related aspects of waves.
The combination of the time and space related aspects of waveforms or vibrations are what molds your four dimensional reality of the time/space continuum and all things in it.
Your thoughts and your desires are waveforms. Your beliefs are waveforms. Passing thoughts and casual desires are mutable waveforms. Clear consistent thought patterns and constant fervent desires are solitons. Opinions are mutable waveforms. Core beliefs are solitons.
Mutable waveforms adapt to pre-existing circumstances and conditions. Solitons pass through circumstances and conditions unchanged in themselves and affect change on the environment they pass through.
That means that if you take control of your thoughts, desires and beliefs in order to bring about a consistency and harmony to them, you will be able to create effects rather than be an effect. You can learn to be causal rather than merely effectual. You can learn to be creator instead of mere creature.
The various waveforms that make up the universe we perceive emanate from a universal consciousness.
The way that you perceive your reality is by the interaction of your individual consciousness with these waveforms.
Your eyes do not see things any more than a camera lens sees things. They only focus light waves in order to stimulate an electrochemical event in your brain. Your mind, an aspect of your consciousness, then interprets the patterns of these sparking neurons in order to create a picture in your imagination.
Your ears do not hear sound any more than a microphone hears sound. They only focus sound waves in order to stimulate an electrochemical event in your brain. Your mind, an aspect of your consciousness, then interprets the patterns of these sparking neurons in order to create an impression.
Your tongue does not taste. Your nose does not smell. Your skin does not feel. All that happens is that your nerves are being stimulated by waveforms. This stimulation creates electrochemical events in your brain that your mind interprets in order to elucidate the interaction of your consciousness with universal consciousness.
Most people’s conception of reality is completely determined, defined and limited by their perceptual abilities. When you allow your picture of reality to be defined only by your physical sen5es, you are restricting yourself.
In order to fully comprehend the nature of reality, you must first understand the nature of consciousness.
Energy is created by consciousness. Consciousness pervades energy infusing it with its attributes as delineated by the four forces previously described and the four aspects of waveforms also previously described.
Every thought originates in consciousness. Every thought creates a waveform defined by amplitude, periodicity, frequency and shape.
The universe is a thought form of a universal consciousness. Your ability to think enables you to have an affect on the universe or to be causal.
Why not choose to do it consciously and intentionally instead of unconsciously and happenstancially? You would get to create on purpose instead of by accident.
This is your invitation to step into your greatness; to be a consciously creative and intentional human being.
