Possibilities of the Universe

posted by dchopra

The Universe is a field of possibilities until we ask a question, only then can it begin to assemble itself into a “space/time event”–an answer.

So I can see that it is good to ask lots of questions :-) Thanks again!

Deepak,
The universe is a field of possibilities if we allow our ownself to absorb in it. It is how much you are willing to understand yourself. You have to understand that you are a fraction part of the universe. Nothing is accomplished without help from each other. We can only assemble ( in your terms) if we understand that we are the small piece of puzzle (universe) and we are the perfect fit if we acknowledge and accept thus bear the full responsibilities of our talk and actions.
ULTIMATELY IT BOILS DOWN TO OUR OWN SELF. EVERY INDIVIDUAL IS AN UNIVERSE WITHIN THEMSELVES.

If I imagine an omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent God, what falls out of this? Any image or form that I create is insufficient. As close as I come to it is an analogy, imperfect as that is. The analogy is of the relationship of a fractal equation to a manifesting fractal form. The equation is virtual and contains the universe of what can be expressed through instantiation of the equation. This makes the equation eternal/unchanging in itself, and instantiated it is boundlessly expansive. Any point on the manifesting form of the equation is a seed to what follows with each iteration of the equation. This is how I imagine God, and the one worthy question that is answering through our manifesting universe.
Who or what am I?
The universe manifests the eternal peering into a space-time mirror, the instantiation of itself.
What am I to make of this, what am I to do with this? I stand myself before and part of that very mirror. I can allude to it by poetry and music which play upon me, shaping my state to explore the question. Presence is felt, deep, powerful, old, dark and radiant. The void is that place which at the end of life on the event horizon on the edge of eternity where we collapse into singularity. It is not unlike the physical black hole; how surprising. It is also not unlike having a video camera and pointing it at the monitor it displays upon. Keep the camera straight and zoom in. What happens? Imagine within image within image ad infinitum. As the zoom approaches unity, 1:1, the frames become closer and closer until collapse. It is like two perfect mirrors facing each other.
A Hideous Fascination
Standing on a moment,
A mirror of myself unfolds in fractal variations.
I stand transfixed, a mirror facing a mirror,
Where a single thought reflects, refracts and distorts,
A hideous fascination.
What Never Was is Gone.
For this poem to work, it must have no form.
How can it stretch itself into nothing?
How can it collapse the world of forms?
How can it silence the clatter of the mind?
Oh Beloved, One of purest beauty and love,
Make of me a silent testament.
Make of me a mirror, and break me into pieces
So that becoming formless, I reflect perfectly.
Snap the pen and the mind that hides you.
Burn the paper upon which I am written.
Sear these words in the fire of perfect love.
Leave not so much as ash behind.
Oh Beloved, in whom I have become,
Erase me within thee.
Let no-thing remain to witness:
What never was is gone.
What I write is what lies hidden, if listen intensely. Every person is like this. All we have to do is divest ourselves of form and peer into the mirror. The rest happens of its own accord.

Five Spiritual Mysteries: #2 Why Does God Let Bad Things Happen? (Part 2)
    One of the biggest stumbling blocks for people who want to believe in God is the existence of bad things in our lives.  The evening news carries enough stories about war, crime, famine, oppression, and much else that a loving God wouldn't permit. But as we saw in the first post,

Five Spiritual Mysteries: #2 Why Does God Let Bad Things Happen?
In every spiritual tradition, different as they are, God is taken to be the moral compass for human beings. He may or may not be a punisher.  He may or may not sit in judgment, watching and weighing our every move. He may or may not be a He, since the God of Judaism, for example, is without form. B

Five Spiritual Mysteries: #1 Is Karma Fair? (Part 2)
Even at a time when religion is declining in the West, most people remember the Biblical saying "As you sow, so shall you reap." they cling to a belief taught in childhood, that good is rewarded and evil punished. In the first post we started to look at the possibility that what was learned in child

Five Spiritual Mysteries: #1 Is Karma Fair?
We live in an especially dispirited time when people say, totally without irony, "Life is unfair" and "No good deed goes unpunished."  Is there proof that life is, in fact, fair or unfair?  The question doesn't even make sense if you believe that the universe is cold, random and devoid of meaning.
