The idea of causation begins with you

The idea of causation begins with you.
If you see yourself as the ‘doer’,
You would accordingly see causation everywhere.
On the other hand,
If you see yourself as a non-doer,
That is, as an effect (of a deeper mystery/plane of forces) rather than a cause,
Then you see the same mystery reflected everywhere outside too.

Our perception of the outside is a fractal projection,
Whose pattern self-replicates from our inner pattern/understanding/view.
The depth to which you know yourself,
Is the same depth with which you see the outer existence.

Why I like progressive trance

Lightspeed_Tunnel

I like to listen to progressive trance,
Because I want to spin as rapidly as I can,
Like a tornado or windmill,
With the greatest oomph, thump, power, push, momentum,
With perfection, balance, stillness, harmony, symmetry,
Until all of the me inside me is all freed,
Until all of my freeze is fully shaken off,
Until all that is not me is centrifuged out of me.

I want to just ‘get lost’/vanish/disappear into the groove,
I want to completely escape into another altered state,
I want to just run away as fast as I possibly can,
I want to be moved, overpowered, carried away,
I want to be absorbed, engulfed, enraptured, entranced, enthralled,
I want to get lost in the frenzy,
I want to lose myself.

See polarity pairs together

When it comes to polarities,
Each polarity-pair is a dimension-spectrum of experience.
It is like the motion of the pendulum from left to right, then right to left.

Each explicit manifest polarity, houses within itself the implicit potential opposite polarity.
So every swing creates a potential, for which there is a compensatory movement to the opposite pole.

There are a bunch of such pendulums swinging, some wildly and some softly.
So we bob back and forth from the 0, for each polarity-set or dimension-spectrum.

This dance of polarity with its momentum is the dance of experience itself.
It is this movement that manifests experience itself.
Everything is known or experienced only in contrast.

There is only the inversion of the explicit and implicit in experience-time.
For instance, richness is implicit to the explicit experience of poverty, and vice versa.

For each polarity-set,
There are cycles/vibrations happening at different amplitudes/strengths and periods/rates.
Which keep on increasing as we go from:
Universe -> World/Earth -> Body senses -> Mind -> Consciousness.
For instance, the Saturn orbit cycle is 29 years,
While night and day cycle on earth is 24 hours.
Going further, your senses are working at an even faster vibration rate/clock speed.
Then going even further your mind is at an even faster vibration rate/clock speed,
Because it is the mind that interprets the senses and their data.
And finally, we have ‘Consciousness’ itself which operates at the highest clock speed/finest fastest vibratory rate.
Consciousness is like the primordial substrate of experience,
The primordial aliveness that lets you experience anything.

Thought and Chemistry

I have observed that,
There is a bi-directional relationship between,
The thought world —and— The body chemistry world.
Each reflects the other.

Changing the thought world => Changes the chemistry world.
Changing the chemistry world => Changes the thought world.

Being stuck in certain thought patterns => Keeps your chemistry patterns stuck too.
Being stuck in certain body chemistry patterns => Keeps your thought patterns stuck too.

There are 2 other aspects too,
Of continuity/linearity —vs—- discontinuity/quantum jump.
A fresh inspiration from nowhere is a discontinuous quantum jump influence,
While predictable calculated expected events are in the continuity/linearity aspect.

There is also a mapping or link,
Running between the sensory world and the thought-chemistry worlds.
Which is the influence of what we call the external world,
On our thought-chemistry worlds.

Another link is a link from:
Our thought-chemistry worlds to a kind of over/super-mind.
(inspired from Aurobindo’s models)
This over/super-mind is the source of fresh ideas/inspiration.
Like a link between the “higher dimension of potential creation” to “our dimension”.

In Kabbalah there are 4 worlds:
Atziluth(supermind world) — Briah(thought world) — Yetizah(chemistry world) — Assiah(sensory world).
It seems like parts of the higher world, in this chain, are incubated in the next lower world.
For instance, you can incubate an inspiration from Atziluth in the womb of Briah,
And give it conceptual expression,
Like what I do while writing posts in this blog.
My blog posts are translations of inspirations I receive in vibratory form from a sort of higher dimension/super mind, as I see it.

Each of the descending worlds,
Serves as a womb for the forms received from the next higher world.

Competition serving Cooperation or Cooperation serving Competition

Cooperation serving Competition:
This is like most team sports.
The cooperation is within the team,
But it is meant to serve the higher goal of competition.

Competition serving Cooperation:
This is like the musician maestros of ancient India.
They would all bring their instruments,
And compete to best the other’s performance in each round,
But all of it serving to elevate the level of the art form itself.

My orientation has been towards ‘Competition serving Cooperation’.
Which is of all of us working towards a higher purpose/goal,
While also competing/playing with each other for fun,
Or competing in a way that ultimately serves all.
Like a “win-WIN” (serving as an encouragement for the smaller win),
Instead of a “WIN-LOSE” which is winning at the COST of the other.

Most of the activities I see in the world today,
School, College, Political Debates, Work, Sports, Making money, Business,

Almost all of it seems like the case of “Cooperation for Competition”.
Where everything happens in the same level playing field,
As a kind of zero-sum game,
In a quest for supremacy,
Where it is every man for himself.

Programming, Judgment, Disowning, and Projection

You want to have sex or relations,
With the qualities that you are not identified with,
But want to include in yourself and identify with.

This would apply even to attractions to even what we refer to as negative.
For instance, say you are attracted to abusers, manipulators, selfish/exploitative, uncaring, angry others,
That means you like their “service to self” quality,
Which is something you would desire to include into yourself.
But it may be too difficult to own because of your heavy identification with its opposite.

Our soul is precisely attracted to the qualities of other souls,
Which we need to balance/null/neutralize/complete ourselves.
The flow chart would be something like this:
The programming structures -> Perception/Vision -> Judgment -> Disowning -> Projection of qualities (which become others).
Then we attract all others with that projected quality,
Because it is too difficult to own that in ourselves.
It would require a lot of transformation and rewiring to include those aspects too.

This applies to both what we judge as good and bad in others.
We may project the judged good qualities out, because we may believe we are not worthy of them.
We may project the judged bad qualities out, because we may hold on to an ideal of ourselves and these bad qualities may be ruining that ideal.

A quality may contradict the very identity we currently have.
So we judge -> disown -> and then project it.
So what this means is, all others are your own projected qualities.
All attraction or repulsion is from disowning.
However when these disowned qualities are witnessed as others, it creates resonance.
The resonance of aspects of ourselves we do not like = disliked ppl.
The resonance of aspects of ourselves we do like = liked ppl.

It is not that you “Actually Are” all the others you perceive.
Rather, you are your perception/experience of them, i.e. how ‘you’ see them.
You can only know them to the extent that you are willing to see,
Which is actually the same as your willingness to see and know yourself.

It is like the analogy of the ‘Blind men and the elephant’.
Each starts off at their point of view and explores/owns/projects their reality from there.
The ultimate reality is our true nature, but we ascend to that stage by stage in evolution.
It is every being’s deepest longing to realize this.

Money is the formalization of recognition

Recognition of something is the primary element.
That is, recognition of value/importance and so on.
Once there is a shared recognition of a certain quality/thing,
It is then formalized in society by assigning a monetary value to it.
This creates an ontology/taxonomy/hierarchy/system of “objective” value assignment.
Here objective means the concretization of the subjective-common-agreement.

Alternatively, there is also ‘informal recognition’.
Informal recognition is like when you help your neighbors/relatives/friends etc.
That is also valued/recognized,
And it may give you other rewards like good-will, rapport etc.,
But it may not involve money-exchange.

The things in society that are assigned the highest monetary value,
Are the things that form the “backbone” of society.
They are a reflection of what society(the formalized agreement) prioritizes,
And what society deems as the most important or least important.
Money is literally the measurement of this formalized-value assignment,
Just like how we measure length in terms of feet, inches, and so on.

Money is the life-blood of society,
And just like real blood,
It basically is the carrier that distributes resources,
To every part of the various societal-systems working together.

Some people before starting any activity would always ask,
“Where is the money in this?” or “How much money would this make?”.
Such people are essentially looking for “Formalized Social-Recognition”.
In other words, they have fused their value-system with societal-values.

If you have a value system very different from the society you live in,
Then money would only be a means to an end,
And not a direct measure of your value/contribution itself.
If what you value deeply, is not recognized by society at all,
Then you fall off the map of “formalized valuation”.
The value of your contribution then would be left to subjective evaluation.

Society is a reflection of collective consciousness.
Collective consciousness can be seen as sort of like a bell curve,
With the majority-80% falling close to center line.
The majority have a value-system that is fused with the societal-value system.
It could also be said that it is the commonality of the majority,
That even enables and empowers a structure like society to thrive in the first place.
Money seen as a direct measure of contribution and value,
Is relevant to mainly this set of people.

If you value-system is too far out,
Too regressive or too progressive,
Then you would fall on the ends of this bell curve.
And money would thus become less and less relevant here,
Except as more of a means to an end.

From Modernity to Postmodernity

cymatics

We are transitioning from:
(the past)…Modernity (one large circle(majority), several tiny circles(minorities))-> Postmodernity (mixing of all circles) ->…(the beyond)
This happens like how in the cymatics study, the sand grains change their formation patterns from the rise of frequency.
The social systems will therefore evolve going through alternating periods of order and chaos, rising to more and more complex structures.

The freq of the earth itself is rising from moving into the higher yugas
(be it Kali -> Dwapara OR Dwapara -> Treta).
Rising freq = sun rising, light increasing = complex systems w/ more freedom.
Falling freq = sun setting, darkness increasing = simpler systems w/ more limitation.

The definitions of Tyranny and Freedom are relative.
Tyranny tries to simplify systems (more black and white, direct), which curtails the existing levels of freedom.
Freedom on the other hand, enhances the existing levels of freedom by moving into more intricate complex harmonies/systems.

So there is a tug of war between the good and evil.
The evil tries to centralize power (serving their own interests), curtail freedom, and control everything.
They try to reduce the population, impose simple systems, to make control easier.
While the good attempt to free people, by creating more nuanced systems (exerting a diffused kind of power, serving the interests of the common good) that increase the freedom for all.
This is what I believe we are witnessing in the world today.
The forces trying to reduce freedom —vs— The forces trying to enhance freedom.
The evil forces are trying to drag us back to the darkness, to previous regressive-systems, that allowed them to have total control over others.
While the good are trying to make richer-systems, that will take us beyond even our current limitations.

The world of hyper polarization

The world-era today is called by different names,
Information Age (Info-wars), Age of Hyper Polarization, and so on.
In order to polarize you must take a position of choosing any one side against the other (Red team-Blue team, X-Y etc.).

The issue of taking sides is that,
It creates an endless attack-defense relationship between the 2 sides.
Since there is a vested interest in preserving one’s position,
True investigation cannot happen, and there is circular-thinking from both sides.

When I ponder on this topic further,
It seems like true investigation can only happen from a position of dispassion and disinterest.
The best position that one can take imo seems to be the transcendent position,
That is, the position that transcends both polarities.

As Einstein had said: “Problems cannot be solved from the same level of consciousness in which they exist.”
It is almost like true vision is directly proportional to the level of transcendence/disinterest/disinvestment/dispassion.
More the disinterest = Greater the seeing.

All problems in a way are about polarized positions (1 or -1).
To be FOR or AGAINST, to SUPPORT or OPPOSE, to BE or NOT TO BE and so on.
The truest position is the highest position, which imo is the position of the beginners mind functioning from direct mind-sight, the position of total innocence and direct seeing.
This could be called unconditioned light, or our true nature.

Reminds me of another interesting quote I heard somewhere:
“We know enough to know that we are right,
But we do not know enough to know how we are wrong.”
For instance the world looks flat to us (we know enough to know that we know).
But it takes quite a bit of genius to discover that it is round (to know enough to know how we were wrong in retrospect).
Another example would be: “The world looks solid to us, but it is made up of atoms, and atoms are 99.99% empty space”.
From the level of primordial innocence though,
Both are appearances of the dream field.

The dream of life passes before our eyes.
At various points we close down,
And believe we understand almost everything there is to know about this dream.
We close ourselves into fixed routines, expectations, and conclusions.
But the original mystery we once encountered long before still exists underneath,
And it will reveal itself yet again,
Bringing us back the revelation,
Of our true nature, of being unconditioned light.
