TIME DOES NOT EXIST

§ December 30th, 2009 § Filed under Chapter 55: Time Does Not Exist § Tagged , , , § No Comments

     

The ticking of Time is a hard thing to give up. But you won't have to. In fact, living here in temporal reality, you can't. As long as you perceive this world, you will perceive Time. But it is an illusion, none-the-less.

The ticking of Time is a hard thing to give up. But you won't have to. In fact, living here in temporal reality, you can't. As long as you perceive this world, you will perceive Time. But it is an illusion, none-the-less.

      This is where See Do always began. And during our sessions, anytime one of my questions would reveal that I wasn’t quite getting it, this is where we would return. See Do would simply go back and we’d review it all one more time.

           He’d start: “Time does not exist. But Time is all there is.” On the surface, this is a completely absurd contradiction. But as I hope you will see, there is sense to it.

           It may seem odd to begin with the such difficult concepts, but this will form the foundation of understanding defining the difference between our temporal reality and what I call See Do reality (if you have a better name, please let me know.)

           On the one hand, the idea that Time does not exist is obvious. Time has no substance, no weight, no mass, no physical existence in our temporal reality what-so-ever. It is just an idea. It is the thing that gives us before and after, the arrow of Time that our conscious existence moves along.

           But on the other hand, this conundrum is not what See Do was talking about. What he was talking about is far more fundamental to everything that follows.

           I’ll try and explain what See Do explained to me. And please don’t shoot the messenger.

           As the one thing, the world we project is complete with its full retinue of cause and effect. We richly perceive a world in fluid motion, even though the effect of that in our consciousness comes through a careful weaving of memory into what we think of as the immediate perceptual input.

           And as spiritual sages have said for millennia, this is an illusion. But be careful, because this really only confuses the issue by trying to bridge the two points of view. Here in our temporal reality, we fully perceive this thing we call Time (more on this in the next chapter), but for understanding See Do reality one needs to see the possibility that Time is uniquely native to our temporal reality perceptual state.

           Here in our temporal reality, we see time as a solid and immutable thing. But even here, it is not. The flow can be changed depending on our perceptual state. And consciously.

           We see this often. Time sometimes “flies,” sometimes “drags.” We have been taught to dismiss these irregularities. But with careful attention to your state of True Being, you can take some conscious control of this. See Do showed me how and with practice I have come to see the perceived flow of Time as somewhat malleable. Don’t be afraid to try for yourself.

           So the important things are these: This thing we call Time is an artifact of our conscious perceptions within this temporal reality. Within our consciousness, it is the fabric that our remembered experience of reality is written upon. Everywhere we look, we see it flowing. And without it there would be no state changes to perceive. Outside of our conscious perceptions, outside of our temporal reality, it does not exist.

            In See Do reality, all things exist as one. All endings are in all beginnings. The spirit of one is the spirit of all. All the energies, all the information that we and our science perceive as flowing through our temporal reality are there in infinite supply. Right there.

           You see, without Time there is also no distance, no Space. Without the physical gap between “things” there can be no Time. And without the distinction and separateness of “things,” both Time and Space hold no currency. Energies are not “separated,” so there is no hot, no cold. No darkness, no light. Some sages and translators have called it void, nothingness, even darkness. Beyond being utterly wrong conceptually and missing the point by quite a wide mark, these ideas just add confusion.

           So now we will move forward, gingerly, to better see the difference between our temporal reality and what lies behind the curtain, in See Do reality.

           I hope you’ll stay for the ride.

THERE IS ONLY ONE THING

§ December 26th, 2009 § Filed under Chapter 54: There Is Only One Thing § Tagged , , , , § No Comments

The world around us seems so compelled to fragment. At times is seems to even enjoy presenting itself as a myriad of separate and distinct things. But this is an illusion. It is all a singular expression. There is only one thing.

The world around us seems so compelled to fragmentation. At times it seems to even enjoy presenting itself as a myriad of separate and distinct things. But this is an illusion. It is all a singular expression. There is only one thing.

           Up to now, I have presented a chronicle of the experience of my contact with my Spirit Guide, See Do. Now I will present a more focused explanation of some of See Do’s teachings.

           I will attempt to explain what I’ll call “See Do reality,” which, as explained to me, is the greater or true reality behind what we perceive with our physical perceptions. I will present one key point per chapter, walking through 19 points.

           It is important that I explain that this is what I have been taught. In many of my sessions See Do went through all of the material multiple times. From the very beginning. And in detail.

           So I learned.

           Some of the information that See Do gave to me is conceptually very hard to hold on to. And even harder to live by. I often fail and fall back into the nuts and bolts of our day-to-day temporal reality.

           But let’s begin:

           There is only one thing.

           This is all that there is. It is everything and everyone. It has no past, present or future, as it exists outside of the illusion we call “time.” This one thing has no physical properties or presence, as the “physical” is an artifact of our perceived temporal reality. The one thing exists outside our reality but is our reality. Everything we see as real is an expression of the one thing. It is the canvas and the paint. The author and the word. The sculptor, the sculpture and the viewer. And it is all, and all at once.

           It encompasses all beginnings and all endings.

           There is no size to it. Through our lens it is simultaneously huge and small. You are zero distance from it. And in fact, the ideas of space and distance are also just artifacts of our temporal reality.

           Everything is one and completely connected. But be careful as the idea of “connected” is also an artifact. “Connected” implies two things. There is only one thing. It can not be disconnected.

           Attempting to separate from it would be the definition of folly. That is simply not a possibility. Seeking to consciously better join with it, to move with it and to see everything as one with it is one step on the path to understanding.

           The one thing is not conscious like we are, though it holds all sentience and consciousness within it. The one thing has a simple and singular need. Call it a motivation, a goal, a cause, a reason for being, though all these crude words are wrong. Our ideas of consciousness and thought are too rooted in our temporal or time-based reality to translate with any accuracy what is really going on. We see thought as a prelude to action. In our world we are motivated to act, then we act. The one thing exists outside of our ideas of time and space, so before and after don’t apply to the one thing. And I should remind you that “there” is here. There is only one thing. You express it. And it expresses you.

           The one thing does not have a name. It is that it is.

           But the one thing has, let’s call it, an “idea.” And this “idea” is the end-game. It is where we are supposed to be heading. It is perhaps the singular thing that See Do wanted me to “get.” It is the great castle. Remember? The purpose of life(Chapter 20)? See Do explained that the purpose of life is “to use a small tool to build a great castle.”

           It is “one-ness.”

           And that is where we and our perceived reality come in. You may have noticed that the reality around us, our temporal reality, has a little problem. Well, let’s not call it a problem. Let’s call it a property, as it appears to be rather ubiquitous. It is entropy. That is the inclination of all physical systems to progress toward ever greater disorder.

           The expression of entropy in life can lead us to see reality as a compilation of distinct and separate things. But there is only one thing.

           You will begin to build the castle as you begin to see and appreciate the one thing around you and expressing through you. You will begin to build as you see your reality as our own creation. And when, through your deeper understanding, you begin to actively create your reality, rather than trying to dodge and dance around what you might see as the world’s random acts of entropy.

           I know you’ve been told all this before. Many great faiths and spiritual leaders have brought forth the same message. For good reason. It is where you must begin. There is only one thing.

           We’ll come back to this keystone idea. That was lesson one. Get it?

A MEDITATION ON THE SPACE BETWEEN

§ December 23rd, 2009 § Filed under Chapter 53: A Meditation on the Space Between § Tagged , , , , , § No Comments

  

What do you see in the space inside this tiny shell. The whole shell is about 1 1/2 inches tall. Can you feel the history of events that wore it thin? Can you imagine the energies that have flowed through that gap? Or is it empty space? Is it different than the space around you? Or is it the same?

Can you imagine the energies that have flowed through that gap? Or is it empty space? Is it different than the space around you? Or is it the same? There is only one thing.

           [This chapter concludes the “assignment” from my Spirit Guide, See Do, to examine the complexities of our mundane reality. The specific construct given me to examine was a hypothetical cube ¼ inch on a side, floating in the air about a foot in front of my face. This final meditation on our temporal reality will be followed by an examination of “See Do reality.”]

            And even if we insist on visualizing an entire atom with all of its constituent particles being whole and right there, they are impossibly small. One example is to see the nucleus of an atom as a pinhead in the center of a stadium. Out in the stands would be the electrons, much smaller than that pinhead.

            The rest is just empty space.              

            Empty “Space” full of “clouds of probabilities” that also have no individual history and that are not limited to any specific volume, or location, in Space or Time.

            I think I may be starting to see the value of this lesson.

            That is what I have been working on with this meditation. It has sent me down many paths of research and exposed me to many new and amazing ideas. I’ve read things about all these subjects in order to reach what is even now, the most rudimentary understanding, if I could be so bold as to label it “understanding” at all.

            And in between, I have been looking at other infinities. Infinities beyond the nearly incomprehensible complexity of “reality” inside our quarter-inch cube.

            As I’ve thought about it and walked around a bit today, I’ve come to understand that this meditation on the most basic reality is, in fact, just the beginning. This little cube of space in front of my face is a place where we might have thought not much was happening. But there is so much there. And then, to extend this line of inquiry into places where there obviously is more going on? Well, that is yet to come, I think.

            My mind goes to thoughts of living cells and molecules and the energies within those worlds. The complexity of an instant inside us. And I come back to the interconnectedness of everything.

           It’s mind expanding and tempting to start again. There is no Time. Time does not exist. But to us, this thing we call Time is all we can detect. There is only one thing. Everything is connected.

           I am told, by See Do, that the path to integrating all of this is through the complexity, through the infinities. Not through simplification. It is not a “concept” that you can hold in your hand, like a big number that you know, and can write, but have no true concept of. It is real. It is everything. And it is all, and all at once.

           This is the beginning. It is more than a simple exercise of the mind. It is a meditation that is always accessible now. Hold it all and you are closer to the truth.

           Take it with you and walk with it. Allow the complexity of the world into your heart. Into your True Being.

           With our mind we can travel beyond our senses. With our mind open we can reach greater sensitivity to all the movements around us. And through us. In True Being we can reach out.

           There is something here. And I am getting closer to it.

           And I am ready.

A MEDITATION ON THE TINY

§ December 20th, 2009 § Filed under Chapter 52: A Meditation on the Tiny § Tagged , , , , , , , , , § No Comments

  

Our 1/4 inch cube would fit nicely tucked just out of sight inside this orchid. All 1,200,000,000,000,000,000 molecules of it. And all the energies and information would continue to flow without the slightest interruption to this flower's serenity.

Our 1/4 inch cube of air would fit nicely tucked just out of sight inside this orchid. All 1,200,000,000,000,000,000 molecules of it. And all the energies and information would continue to flow without the slightest interruption to this flower's serenity.

           [This chapter continues the “assignment” from my Spirit Guide, See Do, to examine the complexities of our mundane reality. The specific construct given me to examine is a hypothetical cube ¼ inch on a side, floating in the air about a foot in front of my face. These meditations on our temporal reality will be followed by an examination of “See Do reality.”]

            We’ve considered all the energy and “stuff” that’s passing through our little quarter-inch cube of air, but what about what’s actually inside the cube itself? The air? What if we could capture our cube of air inside a little cube of glass? And take an inventory? What would we have?

            As best I can figure it, if we assume that our cube of air is at “standard atmosphere” conditions, which are near sea level at about 59 degrees Fahrenheit, there are roughly 1.2 billion-billion air molecules bouncing around in there. That’s 1,200,000,000,000,000,000 molecules. I’m serious. Though I may be off by an order of magnitude or two. They are mostly N2 and O2. About 78% nitrogen and 21% oxygen. The rest is rarer gases and dust and all those aromatics I mentioned earlier. Plus a little H2O in vapor form. The number of individual atoms would be, of course, more than double that big number.

            And every atom has a nucleus of protons and neutrons with a cloud of electrons whizzing around it. The particles in the nucleus are held together by forces that are much, much stronger than the electromagnetic force or gravity. These particles mediate these forces, the Strong and Weak Nuclear Forces, by exchanging even more exotic particles. And the electrons are held in their orbitals by exchanging even more photons with the particles in the nucleus.

            These massive energies inside the nucleus are what are released in a nuclear reactor or in a nuclear explosion. Getting about two pounds of uranium nuclei to disintegrate all at once is what happens in a garden variety atomic explosion. What makes the uranium special is not that it has so much more energy, it’s just that it’s so unstable. So when you bring a couple pounds of it into close proximity, the naturally decaying nuclei send out enough high-energy particles to trigger the decay of more unstable nearby nuclei. A chain reaction starts and, well, if left unchecked, will release a truly vast amount of energy, as heat and light and all matter of exotic radiation.

            The actual energy would be about the same as in any two pound mass of anything, even air. It would just be damn near impossible to release it. But the point is, the energy is in there.

            And keep in mind that all of these particles are incredibly small. So small, in fact, that they nearly wink out of space altogether. In fact, some of them might. An electron for example, according to quantum mechanics, only exists as a cloud of probabilities until it interacts with something. The same thing could be true for all of these particles. Including all those photons. Each only comes into existence at the, and for the, moment of interaction. Before that, and after that, they are just “likelihoods” utterly without substantive existence.

           Consider that quantum mechanics says that atoms, and their particles, do not each have their own individual history. And that photons are not limited to a specific volume in space or time. Or time? Yeah, or time.

           This is science’s view of the cube. Or a glimpse of it. Complex. Incredibly so. Dense with information. Maybe infinitely so. And holding energies that are difficult to imagine.

           Breathe it all in. Meditate on these “facts.” Exhale.

           We’re not quite finished.

A MEDITATION ON GRAVITY

§ December 17th, 2009 § Filed under Chapter 51 A Meditation on Gravity § Tagged , , , § 1 Comment

Heaviness. Lightness. Gravity. The duck is bouyant because it's body is displacing more mass of water than the duck's own total mass. So the duck is pushed down into the water by gravity and the heavier water, held in place by gravity, pushes back. And the duck floats, completely unaware of the perfect and intimate communications going on around it -- between itself, the water, the Earth, the moon and beyond.

These meditations on our temporal reality will be followed by an examination of “See Do reality.”]

            And there is one more force passing through our quarter inch cube of air. It is the weakest of Nature’s four big forces, well behind the Strong Nuclear Force, the Weak Nuclear Force, and Electromagnetism. In fact, I nearly left it out. It is Gravity. Something that in our world is so ubiquitous as to be almost forgotten.

            The force of Gravity moves through our cube too. And in every direction. Of course, the most obvious direction is “down,” pulling the masses of all those molecules toward the center of the Earth’s mass.

            But what is this stuff? What is Gravity? A wave, a particle, what? The truth is that right at the moment, there is no good answer. The theories haven’t quite cracked the code of this one yet.

            But there is something going on. Something is happening. You are held to the mass of the Earth by something. And somehow, you are held to the very center of that mass. Somehow every bit of the Earth and everything on it is interacting instantaneously and letting every other bit know the sum. Instantaneously. And all that information goes through the cube.

            You can easily prove it. Get a nice hefty pen and hold it vertically just above the cube. And let it go. Whatever force is pulling it down had to pass through the cube. And it did so with a force that was exactly, precisely, perfectly proportional to the difference in mass between the Earth and the pen. Consider the calculation. Imagine calculating the difference between the entire planet and the pen. But you don’t have to. It’s done automatically. And perfectly. It’s Gravity.

            But it’s not very strong. When it comes to ferrous metals, most any dime-store magnet exhibits more power. But it is incredible pervasive.

           In fact, it apparently extends its grip infinitely. Our Moon easily lifts the seas. Our planet is held fast to the Sun, over ninety-three million miles away. And our Sun is held in orbit around the galactic center over twenty-four thousand light-years away. Our Milky Way galaxy itself is being pulled toward something heavier. Everything is. And the combined effect of all mass has an effect on everything everywhere. And all that information is somehow transiting our cube. All that information. Right now.

           The exact weight of that pen when you let it go was contingent on all of it. Was the moon up? The Sun? They may have had a tiny, tiny, miniscule effect, but the information was there. And part of the calculation.

           Back inside our little cube the most obvious effect of Gravity is the air pressure. Our air molecules are under the weight of all the air above them. That’s roughly sixty miles of air pushing down. The pressure comes to nearly fifteen pounds of pressure per square inch holding our little cube together.

           Many see Gravity as one proof of instantaneous action at a distance. And frankly, if you can prove otherwise, please let me know.

           It’s all moving through our little cube. An amount of information that reaches the infinite. A simply staggering quantity of data. Meditate on that a while. I’ll be back with more to think about.

A MEDITATION ON HIGHER ENERGIES

§ December 13th, 2009 § Filed under Chapter 50: A Meditation on Higher Energies § Tagged , , , , , , , § No Comments

 

We see the Earth as a solid and opaque thing, with so many colorful energies of photons constantly "reflecting" back at us. But to some sub-atomic particles our little planet is as transparent as a gypsy's crystal ball. Greatly outnumbering our precious photons they pour straight through, night and day. What information might they be carrying? Niether our meager senses nor our science can yet say.

           Up at the other end of the electromagnetic spectrum, toward the higher energies, things are different again. Just above the energies of visible light is ultraviolet. If you’re little cube is outside there’s a lot of ultraviolet radiation pouring through from the sun. With its higher energy, ultraviolet radiation can affect physical changes on certain living cells. That’s what we call sunburn.

            Up the energy spectrum beyond that come x-rays. And our cube of air should be pretty safe from those. There are some shooting through from high-energy events in deep space, but nothing to worry about.

           Then come gamma rays and cosmic rays. High energy cosmic rays from deep in space pour through our little cube all the time. Mostly they just shoot straight through.

           And there are gamma rays flying around too, mostly from the natural breakdown and decay of the nuclei of atoms all around us, and in us. That’s what we think of as nuclear radiation. We live in a sea of it. It’s called the natural background radiation.

           Inside our own bodies, there are over one billion atomic nuclei that decay every second. When they do, they send out a shower of very high energy photons. And protons and neutrons. And a whole new menagerie of other particles we won’t even go into. Some of those are whizzing through our cube too.

            And I think I should mention neutrinos now. Although I don’t want to send your brain into overload.

           You see, neutrinos are particles with a little mass but with zero charge. They move very quickly, like photons, but they almost never interact with anything. To a neutrino, the Earth is completely and utterly transparent. They pass straight through all the time.

            Now, take a moment to reconsider all the photon information we talked about that is passing through our cube at any given moment. The visible light, the radio energy, the heat energy, the higher energies. And then read the next sentence very carefully: There may be almost twice as many neutrinos in the universe as there are photons.

            It’s okay. Take a breath. Read that sentence again. And take another breath.

            Well, that’s out of the way.

            The cube is getting crowded. Or is it? This is just a passing glimpse at what modern science sees in an “empty” cube of our mundane temporal reality. And you’re looking for bigger answers? We’d better learn to crawl before we walk.

            You might want to review a few earlier chapters. Then let’s get crawling.

A MEDITATION ON THE MAGNETIC PULSE

§ December 10th, 2009 § Filed under Chapter 49: A Meditation on the Magnetic Pulse § Tagged , , , , § 1 Comment

 

Magnetic fields are all around us. It is believed that birds can migrate so far and wide because they can detect magnetic fields. In fact, it there is evidence that birds may be able to actually see magnetic fields visually.

Magnetic fields are all around us. It is believed that birds can navigate so far and wide because they can detect magnetic fields. In fact, there is scientific evidence that birds may actually be able to see magnetic fields visually.

These meditations on our temporal reality will be followed by an examination of “See Do reality.”]

            Then, at the very lowest end of the electromagnetic spectrum are the static fields. They’re called static, I think, because the frequency of the field is actually zero. There is this flux or flow of electromagnetic energy with zero frequency. Yeah, you may not want to think too hard about that. They’re what we think of as magnetic fields.

           These are hard to explain. And apparently not entirely understood. With zero frequency, all that’s left is a flow of what’s called “vector energy”. What that means is that there is a very directional energy that, like all the rest on the spectrum, is mediated by photons. This flow of photons can change the vector or likely direction of movement of electrons that move through it. If the material in this field has a lot of susceptible electrons, like some metals, and the magnetic field is strong enough, then the whole material can be made to move.

           This happens around us all the time. And our cube is criss-crossed with plenty of magnetic field energy. The most notable is the Earth’s magnetic field. If you were to put a compass in or near our cube, the needle would spin to point north.

           The Earth’s magnetic field is very strong. It is driven from within the core of the Earth, where the outer core of molten metal spins or churns in a manner to create gigantic electric dynamos. This electrical energy has the side effect, as all electrical energy sources do, of also creating a huge magnetic field that reaches out from one pole, loops around and dives back in at the other pole. This looping energy passes through our cube and through our compass needle.

           On its way through the needle it has enough energy to pull a large enough number of the needle’s electrons into alignment with the field’s direction of travel. Technically, these electrons are actually made to change direction in such a way that they loop around the magnetic flow line or flux perpendicular to the flux. This causes the needle, which is magnetic, in other words, it is metal that in a magnetic field will automatically align it’s molecules to its own internal north pole and south pole, to move to physically align with the greater outside flow of magnetic energy. The needle points North.

           Oddly, the North Magnetic Pole of the Earth, which is not at the North Pole, but well to the Canadian side of the North Pole, is technically the Earth’s south pole, magnetically speaking. You see, magnetic fields loop around from their north pole to their south pole. A compass will point in the direction of the flow.

           And, at the moment, the Earth’s magnetic poles are about eleven degrees off from the Earth’s actual axis of spin. I say at the moment, because over period of thousands of years, the pole moves around, and occasionally flips completely.

           The Earth’s magnetic field also reaches out into space for hundreds of thousands of miles. It is this energy flow that protects us from a lot of bad cosmic energy. Without a magnetic field, the ionizing radiation that would pour in would make life on Earth all but impossible. There would just be too much radiation.

           The energy of the Sun’s magnetic field, or the Solar Wind, would be a show stopper all its own. And the cosmic rays from the rest of the universe would add the knock-out punch. But the Earth’s magnetic field shields us from most of those energies.

           And there are other magnetic fields moving through our little cube. All around us are electric wires, electric motors, appliances and various magnets. If you take a small compass and walk around the space you live in, you’ll see the needle spin and turn all around as you move it through the various fields. Some of the bigger ones are around the microwave and its magnetron, the refrigerator and its electric motor, your stereo speakers have nice strong magnets, the TV, the laptop. There are many.

           These things aren’t dangerous, that’s not he point. But they do generate magnetic fields that are passing through our quarter inch cube.

           It’s all right there in that tiny space. Right now. Think about it. Meditate on it. Just be sure to come back for more.

A MEDITATION ON SOUND

§ December 6th, 2009 § Filed under Chapter 48: A Meditation on Sound § Tagged , , , , , , , § 2 Comments

 

Can you hear the ocean? The area of this photograph is about 1/4 inch across. Yet every sound in earshot echoes around inside the shell. The size of this tiny shell is about the size of the two membranes inside your head that are the only tissue in the human body that can detect sound. Valuable real estate, I'd say.

            The sound waves you’ll find in our little cube work a bit differently than the way the electromagnetic spectrum(photons) propagates. Electromagnetic energy needs no medium to move through. Photons travel just as well, if not better, through a vacuum. But sound is different. Sound energy travels through a medium by vibrating the molecules of that medium at specific frequencies. These vibrations travel out through the medium until they lose their energy.

            So if you put a microphone inside our little cube of air we would hear all the sound around you. Depending on where you might be, that could be an enormous amount of information.

            Where I’m sitting I can hear the din of the city of Chicago, which could probably be broken down into its constituent voices. Buses, cars, trucks, brakes screeching, horns honking, gears shifting, a motorcycle frapping away, an occasional loud voice, rooftop air conditioners, jet planes, a helicopter, the sound of the subway coming up through vents in the street, a police siren, my neighbor at his door, and oh yeah, the wind. And if I’m lucky, an occasional bird. There’s also the sound of my own typing, breathing, moving in my chair, and swallowing. My refrigerator makes a humming and its ice maker will rattle. The clock on the wall ticks and the air unit gently hisses. If only there were some music playing.

            All of this information is vibrating the air molecules in our cube. And these molecules are sending on all of those vibrations on to the adjacent air molecules with only a minuscule loss of energy. And they are passing those vibrations on at over six hundred miles an hour, in all directions. Yeah, six hundred plus miles an hour. Right in our cube. That’s why it’s called the speed of sound.

            You should think about these things. Actually, you should meditate on the complexity of it all. This is our normal, mundane reality. It’s not so simple as you might have allowed yourself to think. Meditate on it and you’ll see that it is all very connected. It overlaps, blurs, overflows, mingles and reverberates everything else. This is scientific fact. All basic stuff. And we haven’t even gotten to the juicy stuff.

            Look at your cube. Think about what’s there. It’s good. Real good.

A MEDITATION ON THE RADIO SPECTRUM

§ December 3rd, 2009 § Filed under Chapter 47: A Meditation on the Radio Spectrum § Tagged , , , § No Comments

Untold radio signals are moving through our cube all the time. If you could have the means, you might be able to listen in. Maybe even to signals from another planet. Certainly photos from our Mars probes are passing through on occassion. Maybe from beyond? And it's right in front of your nose.

Untold radio signals are moving through our cube all the time. If you could have the means, you might be able to listen in. Maybe even to signals from another planet. Certainly photos from our Mars probes are passing through on occassion. Maybe from beyond? And it's right in front of your nose.

           [This chapter continues the “assignment” from my Spirit Guide, See Do, to examine the complexities of our mundane reality. The specific construct given me to examine is a hypothetical cube ¼ inch on a side, floating in the air about a foot in front of my face. These meditations on our temporal reality will be followed by an examination of “See Do reality.”]

            Moving down the energy spectrum things get even more interesting.

           For example,traveling through our cube right now are all the radio waves from all the radio stations you could possibly tune in. And not just on your regular store-bought radio, but on the most powerful radio receiver in the world. All that information is passing through our cube right now. If you stuck a radio antennae in there you could listen. It would all be there.

            The radio spectrum is divided up between thousands of different bands. And you can bet they are all active. There’s Wi-Fi, cell phones, cordless phones, microwave communications. All of these are transmitting. Just imagine all the cell phone signals alone. And the information is passing through our cube. FM radio, television, Shortwave, AM radio. They’re all just passing right on through. If you could receive them all, you’d be getting tons of data by the second. It’s actually hard to conceive of, but it’s there. It’s obviously there.

            There are CB radio transmissions, Police & Fire, Aircraft and ship communications. Not to mention the radar signals being beamed out to track aircraft and chart the weather. And satellite TV and GPS. Oh, and Bluetooth. It’s all passing through the space right there in our cube. Just more photons moving at various energies and frequencies. In all directions.

            Out beyond these lower frequencies are power generators, power lines and the general static field. If you could tune your antennae to those very low frequency signals you would hear their buzz and hiss.

           In fact, if you’re near a power line, you might be able to hear the buzz with your own ears. That’s because the frequency of the vibrating atoms is down near the frequency of audible sound. And in addition to sending off photons, the wire is actually sending out sound waves through the air.

           Our cube is alive with these energies. They are all there to hear, if you have the means. It’s information flowing past. Huge amounts of information. Is it incomprehensible? We pick up our favorite electronic device and tap in without a second thought. And information flows. The world is alive and moving on levels that are far beyond our sensory ability to grasp.

           Radio is well understood by science. These energies are there and decodable in our little cube. I suggest you take the time to shape it with your fingers and think about it.
