WHERE AM I?
Section II - Chapter 10 -- PHYSICAL REALITY
I am sure that there are still a lot of people out there who may still have a few questions regarding my planes of unity theory and its effect on the element of control. However interesting my analogy of opposites to orbits is, I am also sure that no one, or few, will really ever give this concept any serious thought. You see, theory is one thing, practical reality is another. Besides, how can intangible concepts be proven, and better yet, how can one use this knowledge to any benefit? About the only thing that makes any sense in the last chapter is the thought or idea that there is no such thing as right and wrong, good and bad, etc., and everybody knows that situation isn't so or possible. Interesting...yes! Practical...no!
So what have we gotten out of this book so far? Maybe at this point, we better take a look and see just how far we have come on our journey to understanding just who we are? To be honest with you, it has taken me a little longer than I thought, to get from here to there. Or is it there to here? Or does it really make any difference? Again, we are involved in a controversy of opposites. Hopefully, we will eventually solve this problem once and for all, but not now.
Most of this book has been spent explaining how poorly we, as individuals, interact, and communicate with ourselves and others. We have also learned that man limits himself mentally and possibly, physically. We have also learned that man is not so much a free thinker as most of us have come to believe, but we are rather a collection of patterns and routines which controls behavior both on a conscious and subconscious level and in unmanifested non-linear reality. The result of these limitations has a tendency to restrict or channel man's behavior by imposing preset standards of acceptable conduct known as customs and traditions which is nothing more than a collection of short patterns with beginnings and endings that lead to growth in a linear sequential manner.
Now, one's conscious thought process and the unconscious desire for conformity leads one to think in terms of pre-destination or the idea that history repeats itself. If this is the case, then there may be some bad times ahead as most philosophers of doom and gloom seem to believe. However, the purpose of this book is to actually give you the answer to predestination and answer any other question you might have regarding life. It will also give you the way in which you can affect your own reality and possibly that of history itself.
On another more positive note, we have gotten to read and review the dictionary and we may have also learned or discovered something new about how certain words relate in a more technical way to the world of science and mathematics. That is, we have learned how the actual learning process has form and shape, and that the elements that compose this shape relate to one another through an inner content. We have also found out that we can control this relationship by understanding and positioning ourselves within this inner content and by the use of energy and resistance. The key to this control factor is the knowledge of positioning and the ability of the self to make one's own selections that make one's own reality. It is the conscious knowledge of one's self in relationship to understanding one's environment that determines the quality of one's life even though it originates on a subconscious level in non-linear reality.
Again, all of this information may be interesting, but it still doesn't tell us who we really are. It only explains in a new way, how we function in a group environment and behave the way we do. It really doesn't do a good job at that explanation either, because it doesn't tell us why we do, what we do, and for what reasons. In the last chapter, I explained what it is that maintains our positioning and controls our limitations. This explanation of extremes and opposites, gave way to circles of unity or oneness. More than likely, and hopefully, this explanation of balance has given you a little better understanding of why we do what we do, but again, it does not explain the question "Who am I". Perhaps, who we are, is really not that important as is how and why we behave the way we do. But, if we do not learn who we are, there may still be the possibility that we are missing something important in determining our behavior and in properly relating to a group environment, society, or culture. Maybe we are locked into a life of predestination of our own choosing through the learning process and patterning itself.
For all intent and purposes, our explanation of behavior does explain all conditions of both a tangible and intangible nature; however, it is also so abstract and that is difficult for the average person to relate too. Therefore, I will again try to explain this problem of behavior in a different way and in perhaps more easily recognized terms and conditions. The selection or positioning process explains our relationship to customs and traditions, but it doesn't explain why we prefer certain limitations over those of another and/or for what reason. Well, that's not exactly true. It does and it doesn't. I think the best way to explain this situation is through the use of an example.
Basically, we have talked about mental processes and the choosing or selecting of a position within a specific plane of unity; thereby, setting up a specific relationship which one has chosen to experience consciously. That is, one decides prior to an event of a tangible nature, where he wants to view or experience this exercise of energy. This is a cold or sterile way of saying that you make your own reality. An example of this might be a selection, on your part, to participate in a sporting event. This is a group activity that is not unlike one's involvement in a culture or society. The way in which you are going to experience this event depends upon your prior selections. That is, you may have selected to experience this event as a participating player, in which case your prior selections had to do with physical aptitude or skill. Or, perhaps you are a manager or instructor to the participants, in which case you are probably older than the players and you yourself have played the game with some success. Or you may be a financial backer or a paid employee of the stadium, in which case you have selected, or are skilled in providing specialized talents in money management and/or in providing services to the crowd in a way of security, food, drink, health services, or maintenance needs. All of these examples usually require selections of some advanced nature in the way of a conscious commitment to a specific pattern or routine that supports one's lifestyle or supports one through his life experience(s). In a sense, it is a positioning process or life responsibility one has chosen to experience.
On the other hand, one may choose not to make a commitment of such an advanced nature, in which case, one is more likely to be only a spectator. In this latter case, the individual chooses to use his time and money to relax from direct involvement in the sporting event and the use of his energies to that of mental conscious support for an exhibition of talent which is of interest. One's involvement as a spectator may also take one of several forms of support. This can take the use of energy and direct involvement or participation in an indirect way, or it may be that of a passive nature. The latter situation can also take several forms, the most noticeable being his position or seating within the stadium. This shows to some extent, his interest in the event. Another selection might be to listen to the event on radio or to watch the event on TV. In this case, other priorities made direct participation of an indirect nature unfavorable and/or secondary to other matters.
As you can see, selections and participation in an experience can take many forms and becomes quite complicated and involved in itself. These examples and explanations still don't even touch the whole of the problem of positioning; however, it does represent a concept of selection and position of a more conscious tangible nature. You are directly or indirectly involved and/or participating in that event by just being conscious of that happening. It is only a matter of position and selection that separates you from the degree of involvement or participation in the event. Put another way, one's selection limits one's position, which in turn, limits one's experience. Again, man limits himself rather than he is limited by his environment. Interesting....yes! Practical....maybe? You will have to wait a little longer to see.
The preceding chapters only explained in an intangible way, how man learns to limit himself. It also explains how society and sociological pressures of customs and traditions affect man's behavior and/or restricts him or limits his growth. Man's environment basically sets limitations of a regulatory nature by setting precedent behavior modes or patterns that act as guidelines as to what is tolerated and accepted in a group environment. This might sound as if we are now saying that an environment is just as important as the mental positioning process. This may be true in the way most people view and experience the environmental conditioning processes; however, this need not be so. All mental activities precede physical action; therefore, if one can learn to understand and be consciously aware of the positioning process, then one can control his own destiny and fate. You make your own reality! You need not be subject to limitations and/or the pressures of certain pattern relationships which you have selected, unless you wish to be a victim or experience an environment not of your own choosing.
Don't get me wrong, environmental conditioning is a strong and powerful force. However, one can change an environment easier than one can change a mental position. That's because the environment is a tangible form of physical matter that is easily identified to the physical senses and is therefore easy to relate to. One is consciously aware of a change in one's physical environment, but he is not necessarily aware of a change on a subconscious mental level. Once a person has consciously selected an environment, either to work, live, or play in, he has committed himself to an involvement and participation in the use of energy and the forces of that particular environment. He is directly involved in an event or situation of his own choosing. He has consciously chosen to participate in and shared some of himself, his being and energies, with that of a particular environment be it good, bad, or indifferent.
This involvement doesn't necessarily mean that this experience will be of a pleasant or beneficial nature; however, one’s understanding of an environment and one's selecting and choosing of this particular time and place, usually assures one of some reasonable amount of control. Therefore, one's experience can usually be thought of as beneficial in a positive or negative manner. Even though the definition of benefit indicates or states: to do good to, or for, to receive advantages or profit, it also is anything of a contributing nature. Therefore, the individual can gain from an unpleasant as well as a pleasant experience even though it may be somewhat painful. This is a little contradictory to most people's way of thinking and the usual understanding of the word benefit; however, it fits into our concept or circles of unity. That is, there is nothing really good and bad in itself but is dependent upon a relationship of the individual to that environmental condition.
If we carry this thought a little further, the individual who is not consciously aware of his selections and his environment, then might be thought of as a victim of that environment; because the events and forces of that environment will have a tendency to condition and program him into relationships of compatible routines serving to perpetuate patterns of probabilities or predestination over which he has little control. This is a polite way of saying, if you don't know what you are doing, or why you are doing it, then you are not serving yourself or anyone else any good. To subject yourself to the will or forces of others for monetary compensation or some supposed beneficial gain without just or proper creative endeavors that contribute to the greater well being of all, is a very negative and detrimental to that greater well being of all as well as yourself.
Man has free will, but he is also a walking series of patterns; therefore, he is very easily influenced. The reason for his being gullible is because man is not conscious of his own powers and his abilities to determine his own future. He really doesn't understand the world of physical reality and his relationship to planes of unity. Man has the ability to fill in the open spaces and add color where needed; however, he must know what he is doing, and why he is doing it. If he is ever to gain control of his self, his position, his environment, or his point of focus in this physical reality. If you haven't noticed, we are again talking about a situation of balance.
The balance of one's mental selection activities within physical reality brings up the question of tangible and intangible forces of energy. One affects the other, and vice-versa. Selection provides the individual with an environment of his own choosing but that selection process does not necessarily add to or subtract from the individual. That is, there is nothing necessarily good or bad about a particular environment until one decides to interact with it. An environment just is, or exists. One's interaction in that particular environment makes one's experience either of a positive or negative nature, depending upon how one reacts to or with other forms of conscious energy forces within that environment and/or the prevailing acceptable standards of that particular dominant control group or society. Perhaps the only new element that we added in this long dissertation is that of one's level of consciousness.
By physical movement, one is able to position himself in a certain relationship to other forms and forces of conscious energy. Therefore, one affects his level of consciousness and/or involvement with movement or positioning of a tangible nature. This movement changes one's perspective of these energy forces and also serves as a stimulus to one's own powers and his use of energies in a responsive manner, if he so chooses. Because of the effects that positioning plays in affecting or determining one's behavior, one is often accused of, or thought to possess certain qualities of a particular environment. That is, if one should frequent or associate with an environment or certain people with known or predictable behavior patterns, one himself is often typed or classified by others as being like that environment or those people with whom that person associates.
The closer one gets to or associates himself to a particular known pattern, the more likely that person will be influenced by those dominate forces from that particular environment or people. In more simple terms, we are talking about the slang terminology, in a negative sense, known as, "guilt by association". In this latter situation, one does not even have to do anything, to be accused of wrong doing or to be implicated as possessing certain undesirable qualities, even though it may or may not be true. It is true, as far as others are concerned, because people see and are aware of behavior patterns and/or the effects of an environment.
Any form of action or behavior is neither good nor bad in itself in relationship to the individual unless other qualities or standards are imposed. This or these value systems are the indirect interactive relationship which make or determines the act or behavior as being either good or bad. Without these other artificial limits, the idea or concept of planes of unity would be quite clear and acceptable to everyone. This same idea also applies to all people or any environment. To the individual, there is no such thing as good or bad, until he imposes other artificial limitations, or someone else makes that determination for him. In the latter case, the individual has relinquished his rights of self determination to someone else and therefore becomes a victim of his environment. But again, the determination is a matter of position. That is, the individual becomes more concerned or aware of the group acceptance and/or environment than he is of his self or what he himself wants to experience. He tends to go with the flow and adapts to the acceptable patterns and predominate factors within his society or culture for speed, convenience, and other supposedly beneficial factors of group behavior.
So you see, reality or morality is not, or need not be, what it appears to be. These manifestations can and should be thought of as circles of unity or oneness that need only be identified. There is no such thing as the words good and bad indicate, until the action or behavior of the individual is compared to someone or something else which has the ability to enforce an artificial limiting standard of conduct. It is just like the word best; it cannot be identified until one first determines or selects a course of action or desired end result
One's reality is of one's own choosing. One selects that which he wants to experience; however, that selection and choosing is more often than not, of an unconscious or subconscious nature which contributes to one's learning process, and that in turn, sets up limitations and establishes patterns that control one's behavior. Therefore, one's state of being is primarily a result of patterning and the limitations that the individual has placed upon himself. Again, man limits himself, rather than he is limited.
Man has trained and has patterned himself to see and seek separations and divisions. His world consists of differences that appear because of one's position and the need of the individual to control his environment. That is, by separation, one is able to identify certain inbalances which man finds useful. On the surface, these inbalances may seem trivial and ridiculous to the casual observer. However, I think they deserve a lot greater attention if you are ever to understand the theory of unity. To do that, I think it is necessary that we go into a rather deep explanation of physical reality.
The word, physical reality pertains to a quality relating to the conscious senses. A proper definition describes it as that which is real, fact, actual, true, etc. However, it is also interesting that one definition describes it as the image made in relation to the meeting of light rays at a certain point or points. Now, as far as I am concerned, these definitions tell us very little about physical reality, but the latter definition does reference the words position (point) and the word "relation", both of which are very important. The dictionary relies on one's ability to recognize or interpret what one means by real, fact, actual or true. I myself like the reference to the senses, because it sets up a relationship of understanding of a multiple of things, but mostly it describes the individual (the recognizer) as having the ability to recognize and offer recognition to all there is or everything.
Man's world is composed of physical matter, which in itself, has separated itself, created or manifested itself from everything and nothing. That is, matter is a form of energy, composed of particles or atoms. To come from everything or nothing implies opposites or a positive and negative form and/or force. This means, that the positive form of matter must also imply a negative form of matter or anti-matter, however, we are dealing with the intangible again and therefore, it is difficult to relate to something that is not of like properties. Consequently, we cannot be assured of another form of energy, even though it is probable and relative. To make this point clear, I have to revert to that of another example to explain the words everything and nothing.
Let's say that the universe is comparable to a block of wood, stone, or metal. In a sense, this solid mass would or could contain every possible configuration of patterns and/or design, or it could contain nothing but the density of block itself. The shape of the final product really depends on the dominate force(s) that work or shape this block. Its final appearance might resemble something that we know to exist or something abstract. Its shape depends upon what is desired by the dominate person or people involved in its creation and/or their skill in working the materials and tools they have. The most important step to achieving the desired end result is the selection of what the end result should be; therefore, we are back to square one, or our block of unity which is everything and nothing.
The molding and shaping of the block of wood, stone or metal is easy for an individual to identify with; however, it is more important for him to know what it is that he wants to achieve. Once the individual begins to expend energies to achieve his desired result, he is pretty well locked into a course of action or predestination. It is extremely difficult to patch or correct a mistake once it is made, and it is almost impossible for it to look the same prior to a mistake, unless the whole thing is painted or covered over with something. It is difficult to correct an endless or limitless block of material even if one were to try to go back and make some type of correction.
It may seem and sound a little strange, but man really identifies better with the patterning and a form of organization than he does with the final end result. The reason for this is because he must then seek another new beginning and/or end result. Man is comfortable performing repetitive tasks. It gives him a sense of order or form that is fairly constant and self assuring to his own well being and value or worth of himself as a human being. He is contributing in a certain predictable manner and producing results with certain predictable qualities. What more can anyone ask for? Isn't this the ideal person?
Anyway, the point I wanted to make is that man sees and seeks separations in order to use inbalances to accomplish certain results. He cannot use this knowledge until he understands the relationship of one inbalance to those of others. Another quick example of this thought is the quality of wood to burn and its ability to be used in construction. In the first case, the wood is used in its original state without limitations. In certain other relations, this same wood can be used in some primitive or basic constructions such as our chair example earlier. It is not until wood is prepared or worked into certain sizes and shapes that it can be used most effectively. In a sense what man has done is to use his knowledge of inbalances to use a harder material such as iron or steel to cut the raw wood and/or to produce limitations on the wood. The end product is then used to erect a structural form that offers qualities of shelter and/or protection against the natural elements of the earth or physical reality to reclaim or change the energy and atoms into something else. As a shelter, the wood helps to retard or slow down the effect of the natural elements to break down everything which are subject to the forces of temperature expansion and contraction as well as the water moisture forces.
Once man has learned the basic knowledge of inbalances, he has the ability to control these certain forces for his benefit. This selection process, constitutes the learning triangle. That is, the knowledge of inbalances and the understanding of their relationship to other inbalances, results in the ability of man to control or possess. The aspect of control then becomes a possession as well as a material reality if he so desires to utilize his ability to manifest his energies for a material object or end result. The amount of knowledge one possesses is relatively useless until man understands the relationship of the inbalances and his ability to bring some form of order or patterning to the relationships. Again, possessions have no value until they can be used to change something or benefit someone. To possess totally is a form of greed and a selfish form of control that does not benefit anyone or anything.
In our description of everything and nothing, we talked about form or patterning as an end result; therefore, it should be noted here, if you haven't already understood it there, that patterning or form can support tremendous forces and energy. The key to controlling these forces is to identify these patterns and their relationship to physical matter. So as not to confuse you too much, let me remind you that the following description of patterning involves only physical matter or the theory of separation, which is also our term for everything.
Man takes for granted many, many, common inbalances as fact or that which is almost natural. Probably one of the most useful and common place inbalances is the ability of wood to burn and to be used as a heat source and catalyst in speeding up the action or reaction of other substances to change their form or pattern. Here, we are talking about areas of inbalances again. First, the natural condition or wood does not or cannot support a condition called burning, until an inbalance can be achieved whereby the molecular structure of the atoms in the wood are excited or energized enough to support a continuous and spontaneous chain reaction which results in a physical change of matter in the release of heat. The heat in turn is easily transferrable and can energize other substances and speed up molecular changes and/or motion to other substances to cause them to act or react in some new form or pattern.
Another common application of wood is in the construction of various structures. In this situation, wood which is precut or limited, is arranged in an unnatural way, in a form, shape, pattern, structure or whatever, to be utilized to produce results that are usually far beyond the natural abilities or characteristics of wood. Here, I am talking about the ability of wood used to make bridges, dams or barriers that can support or hold back forces much greater than unlimited or natural wood. I am also talking about the ability of wood to be arranged for the purpose of transmitting mechanical energy such as the early water wheel and other machinery found at the beginning of the industrial revolution. These are all conditions of inbalances, but how often does anyone really ever even think of these situations or conditions as such.
By using positive and negative forces, or inbalances, found in this physical reality, one is able to affect great changes in matter and/or one's environment. That's because physical matter varies in mass, density and other physical characteristics. Each element or substance has certain attributes, characteristics, behavior, or call it what you may, but by all accounts, call it patterning. Everything is composed of energy or atoms; therefore, all matter possesses some form of unity or oneness to it. However, this idea of commonality or unity is really found in the theory of separation. That is, instead of a two part separation, such as good and bad or black and white, this situation involves multiple points or positions found more commonly on a sphere or similar in nature to a solar system, or the structural shape of an atom. Simply put, matter exhibits separate qualities, even though it is composed of a singular unifying element. It is only a condition or position of balance caused by patterning that creates this separation. It is the structure or pattern of the inbalances that exert forces that stabilize the inbalances. That means that the inbalance is stabilized internally and must require an outside stimulus to de-stabilize it.
Man identifies with separation, because man is limited, and that limiting quality implies patterns. These patterns, in turn, imply inbalances or a form of unity in an unbalanced, but stabilized, state or position. The problem of identifying this unity is due, in part, to the inability of man to see or understand its opposite, un-manifested state of being, which I prefer to use the word nothing in this context. Again, the reason for this problem lies in the fact that man identifies with matter or like things; therefore, man, who is unbalanced himself, cannot relate to unity the same way he can, separation. That's because everything which man knows and is familiar with, is in a state of separation and therefore unbalanced and limited. If everything were properly balanced, there would be absolutely no movement what-so-ever. To be balanced, in physical reality requires its opposite, which is nothing and unlimited. Naturally, this latter state of being is unnatural and therefore cannot be considered probable or relevant to man, even though it may exist. The problem of this logic cannot be found within the boundaries of limitations; therefore, the quest or question remains unanswered up to this point or position.
In our description of our universal block of wood, stone or metal, that had been shaped, or is an on-going process, the material removed was or is tangible. That means that because the matter removed was tangible, so must it be replaced with something tangible and that means it may be an air, a vacuum, or a liquid. That also means that the replacement substance must also occupy and be the complete reverse opposite of that which now exists or a lighter less dense form of tangible matter. From our point of focus or position, we can observe a singular pattern, even though and in fact, other patterns of separation exist in a balanced or limited position of an un-manifested state or position which is intangible. This describes our world of everything and nothing.
In an un-manifested state of being or nothing, the opposite of physical tangible matter is hard to describe. The main reason for this difficulty lies in the fact that this other world(s) or opposite(s) is unlimited and non-linear in origin; therefore, the patterns of tangible matter do not even have to be duplicated in its un-manifested self. That means that there does not have to be any restrictions as to size, shape, form, or time. That also means that positive and negative may not apply to the world of un-manifested matter. However, in comparing how the mind works in dealing with thoughts and ideas of an opposite nature, there is a good indication that there must be some reasonable likeness in their patterns and their relationship to identifiable objects, if only in the mind of the beholder, or man. Remember, the individual (the recognizer) has the ability to recognize and offer recognition to everything and probably nothing.
I hope you don't get too confused in my explanation of inbalances and opposites. The problem of this explanation lies in the fact that we are basically talking about two different sets of opposites that are still united. Those opposites that appear in physical reality are primarily of an intangible nature, but control one's behavior. Then there are opposites that exist in a state of separation and affect behavior on a subconscious level in unmanifested non-linear reality. The difference between these examples is in one's conscious position. One can accept the first example, because one knows the physical limitations or properties of matter or the block of wood and he himself is part of this reality and can sense its forms and patterns.
Physical reality is also contradictory to that of the world of un-manifested matter. That is, our reality tells us that two things cannot occupy the same space at the same time. It also tells us that, should positive and negative forces try to occupy the same space, there is often a violent reaction that results in the release of energy and/or destruction of some kind. On the other side, there is literally nothing. One cannot identify with something he cannot consciously sense. Therefore, man does not lend much credence or recognition to the theory of unity and an un-manifested state of being as much as he supports the theory of separation.
In describing the world of physical reality, I hope each individual can gain a little better understanding of the workings of how man relates to the world about him. The mental processes of choosing and the selection of a position has to do with inbalances and separation. Even though I am going to go into more detail on the patterning of the mental processes, this explanation should help you to understand my theory of unity better. It is my contention, that unity is very important in understanding life in this physical reality. Unless or until this concept is understood, people will continue to embark on a course of separation that will take them further and further away from a true reality of life and its purpose. Unity is the primary cohesive bond between man and "All There Is". Without this knowledge and understanding of this relationship, man, or many people, will never really know or understand life. Such people are captives of their own self imposed limitations. They are the dead, walking amongst the living. They are victims of their environment and subject to the fate of predestination.
To reflect on that last statement a little more, Alvin Toffler wrote two books, one called "Future Shock" and the other "The Third Wave", in which he describes this future of predestination of not less, but more separation. In fact, he has coined his own word to describe one of these new patterns. He calls it, "prosumer". This is a combination of the words, producer and consumer. In short, Mr Toffler believes that man is continuing on a course that will further divide and separate mankind from one another. He supports this statement very well by tracing the history of man back through time and then showing how there were three major changes that affected man's life and behavior.
These changes that Mr. Toffler talks about, primarily involve how man relates to one another. He describes how man was basically a nomad or wanderer, if you may, and survived off the foraging of the land or physical reality. He indicates that the first wave consisted of man becoming domesticated and uniting or becoming one with the land. That is, man learned how to support himself from learning how to grow and prosper off the land. This first wave was agriculture. The second wave consisted of the industrial revolution, which united and tied man closer together than ever before. Then man was subject to greater discipline and emphasis on time and schedules than ever before. Unlike the first wave that dealt in seasons and activities, the second required coordinated activities and standardization to produce mass goods of a similar nature. However, in becoming standardized, man also became separated and dependent upon those still involved with agriculture.
Mr. Toffler says that we are in the midst of the third wave right now. He indicates that the third wave will be the freeing and the separation of man away from the rigid schedules of that demanded by the industrial complex and more toward self determination, where man will or can produce that which he wants and needs and at the same time to sell his services to others who may find a use for his talents and skills. This is primarily the result of the computer age. This electronic marvel will allow man to do more things with far less energies than ever before. The consequences of computers is the lessening of dependence of other people for the purpose of supporting a unifying or collective society. Mr. Toffler does a great job of supporting his claims by citing many examples of diversification of interests and the difficulty of a lot of mass media type support organizations, such as newspapers and TV to retain their sales and/or their ability to influence people as they did once before.
Indirect and directly, Mr. Toffler is talking about separation and predestination. But he also stresses the continuation of existing necessary patterns of agriculture and industry to continue their functional support of man and his culture. The third wave indicates a greater amount of separation than ever before in man's relationship with his fellow man. Compared with a living plant that is supported by roots, leaves, and its main body, man is becoming more separated unto himself. The ruling of the majority is actually becoming a governing of the minorities. Whether or not this is good or bad is unknown at this time; however, without the buffering or conciliatory compromising of the larger majority, the extremes may tend to be a controlling situation. If man can maintain a proper prospective of the theory of unity and exercises his option of free will for the greater well being of man, then there is always optimism for a greater tomorrow. However, without the knowledge and understanding of relationships of unity, there is little patterning that can support this greater probability. You make your own reality!
One more thing, in regards to computers, although these systems are tremendous time savers and offer great savings of personal energies and time, they are in fact preprogrammed limiting systems. That is, you can only end up with a result with which that program was intended. This is a form of predestination. Computer programs are designed to produce a certain end result. If you are trying to end up with a mathematical calculation, such a pattern or program will produce that result. It doesn't matter if the numbers are different every time you enter a different problem. The problem is subject to predestination based on a set of limitations that do not change. Therefore, it may be significant to you to re-evaluate just exactly what patterning is, and how it can affect a certain limited result. Again, the answer from such a pattern is not necessarily good or bad in itself, it just is. It is more important what is done with the information than is the answer itself. It is a relationship that affects one's reality.
To clarify that point a little more, the computer is a mechanical tool which is designed to respond to certain input data, primarily in the form of numbers and symbols. This information is then processed by patterning. That is, the data is assigned a predestined organized system of computations (a fancy word for patterns) that require an answer or answers arranged in another form or pattern. In simple terms, given a problem that involves X, Y and Z, the answer has to be A. Because X, Y, and Z are subject to the laws or planes that must result in A. No other result is possible until or unless other new patterns are assigned tasks and/or values that override or are the controlling factors. These mechanical functions of the computer are called programs. They are, in fact, patterns. They cannot act, they can only react, based upon a stimulus or input that causes this information to be processed in a specific sequential manner that ends up with a result.
My reasoning for going into so much detail on computers is because of the possibility or probability of a constant add on of computer instructions that is taking the control or the result out of the hands of the individuals, who in turn believe that they are exercising their right of free will. That is, the computer is an excellent tool that aids man; however, it is only an aid. As man becomes more use to the beneficial effects of the computer, he will also become more dependent upon it as well. Again, this is neither good nor bad in itself. Should man decide to entrust all of his decision upon a mathematical formula or programmed patterns, it is his decision and selection. However, it should be brought to one's attention that all patterns have their strengths and weaknesses; therefore, care should be taken as to how much information one wants to control or how much information is going to control him. Again, you make your own reality!
I think, therefore I am
is the recognition of what is man.
A venture outward from an inner source
and from which we use energy and force.
Spirit born unto matter
is the form to which we gather.
This is the environment in which we entered
and to which our energies are centered.
Selection is a matter of choice
that gives life meaning and its voice.
But attraction is the faction
that gives us satisfaction.
The universe in mental first
from which comes physical thirst.
Recognition is matter we perceive
or is it how we are deceived.
Real or imaginary,
we make our own reality.
What is and what is not
is in the mind and what is taught.
The original of ones being
is based upon our seeing.
Life is but a reflection
that escapes our detection.
Where we begin
is somewhere deep within.
Truth and love are there,
it's just a matter of care.
