The basic substance of everything is ‘knowing’

The basic substance everything is made up of is ‘consciousness/knowing/cognition’.

The physical laws are only a persistent appearance/illusion of the noumenon. For e.g.: regular day and night, regular seasons, other repeating patterns observed. It is like the habit of the noumenon (just like we have habits in our personal lives) but these habits are not its real nature. These habits are not the only reality there is. They are one among infinite potentials possible.

The true nature of the noumenon is infinite out of which the manifest world is one of its potentials. It is just an appearance just like the a Television screen could show one movie or a certain color pattern again and again but that is not the nature of the television screen since each of its pixels can show an infinite range of color, brightness etc.

The sun rising and setting everyday, the different seasons is like a movie that is persistently playing on the giant 7-D screen of consciousness. But the screen’s nature is infinite. It chooses to show this pattern right now.

At one level I can say, each of us has a personal screen and we all inhabit a shared screen too. But even that is a concept. If you go more fundamental than that, there is only 1 screen in which everything appears/disappears/changes.

It is this screen that knows itself and its infinite contents. Time/Space/Physical laws observed/language etc. are all qualities that the screen displays. But the screen is not bound by any of these things by its nature. That’s why its said, everything that you experience is only an appearance. Its as if you are God and morphing into a million faces for the play of it, but your nature is beyond all of the faces you appear to be.
