Humour, to a man, is like a feather pillow. It is filled with what is easy to get but gives great comfort. ~ Irish Proverb
It’s no use carrying an umbrella if your shoes are leaking. ~ Irish Proverb
“My highest purpose is to lead people to Infinite Consciousness, Infinite Love, Infinite Selflessness, and Infinite Understanding. I am to show people what the highest form of leadership looks like. My entire life is dedicated to this cause. I am to lead people to the realization of Infinite Love and Infinite Beauty by embodiment and demonstration of Infinite Love in my own life. I am a vehicle for God’s highest Love for mankind. The function of my human existence is to demonstrate the Goodness and Magnitude of God to those who lack the vision to see it. I am to use the gift of my extraordinary human mind to communicate God’s highest intentions. I am not to hold back my love out of fear or selfish need. I am to be fearless and selfless and endure any consequences and suffering which will arise from such a path. The endurance of these obstacles and pain is part of my purification process. The suffering I endure will only make me more loving and understanding of the suffering of others, who are none other than myself. I am to shed all ill-will, malice, and judgment towards others, for I cannot help but see them as myself. In the end, the love and selflessness I radiate will inspire and transform the world. My reward will be the love I radiate and Infinite Understanding of the universe. My understanding will reach superhuman levels beyond all human comprehension or and strain the human self to contain. There is no doubt that this my way. I will have many critics and naysayers, but none of them will deter me because all of them I will be overcome simply by radiating more love because I understand that their ignorance is their limited way of showing their love. I understand that all hatred, judgment, and violence is just a condensed form of love. Through total self-understanding I will become incapable of seeing wrong or evil, even in those who seek to harm me. By the end of my human life the highest potential of a human life will have been actualized. The details of how all of this unfolds will be unimportant, as it will simply unfold as it must. My body and mind is at the highest service of Universal Intelligence. The point of no return has already been reached so no further decision is necessary. All of this is self-evidently true. When I lose track of my highest purpose (and I will) I am to return here and re-read this statement, re-grounding myself in that which is undeniable.
Actualized 2.0 is coming. Brace yourself for a sledgehammer of Love.”
“Biologists are only starting to get an idea of how complex and astounding life truly is.
“I still remember the moment. It’s something I will never forget. The hair on my hands just stood up.”
Why did the hair on his hands stand up? Because his mind caught a glimpse of Infinite Intelligence. That’s God! But he doesn’t realize that yet since he’s looking at these cells from the materialist paradigm. How much more awesome it becomes when you realize that these cells are occurring within an Infinite Mind — what’s more — YOUR Infinite Mind, created by You!
Life is infinitely complex, and the only way it can work at all is because it is managed by an Infinite Intelligence that tracks every single detail with infinite precision, perfectly.
Only a naive human can convince itself that this whole process can be modeled and analyzed by the human mind. No model will ever do it justice. This is just the tip of an infinite iceberg.”
“Here’s another metaphor for thinking about the ultimate nature of reality:
Imagine, if you will, an infinite chameleon.
Oh, common on! It’s not as ridiculous as it sounds. Put on your thinking-cap and play along.
A regular chameleon is only able change itself in one way: by changing colors. Which equals one degree of freedom. But imagine a creature which is so flexible that it’s able (somehow) to be a chameleon in every way possible. Meaning, it has infinite degrees of freedom. Imagine it could freely morph its size, shape, texture, temperature, smell, bones, cells, molecules, atoms, and even the physical laws which govern its entire being.
How could it do that?
Well… it would have to actually be limitless. As in: without limit. As in: an unlimited, all-powerful chameleon. (Don’t worry, he’s only a danger to pesky flies.)
What would such a creature look like?
Well, not much like a standard chameleon, that’s for sure. It wouldn’t even be right to call it a creature because a “creature” is a label we invented to refer to a set of certain constrains upon infinite degrees of freedom. To be a “creature” precisely means that you’re not free to be something else, like a coffee table. So this thing is not really a creature. But it’s also not a “thing”, because to be a “thing” is also a set of constrains upon infinite degrees of freedom. So this infinite chameleon would most closely resemble no-thing. Why nothing? Because, imagine that every property sort of cancels itself out by its negation, like the positive and negative integers might if you tried to add them all together.
But notice, this would not be your ordinary notion of nothingness, like some kind of black, lifeless void. Instead, imagine this “nothingness chameleon” as having infinite degrees of freedom, allowing “him” to masquerade as everything. He would be bursting at the seams with infinite potential, ready to actualize into something concrete.
So why bother calling it a chameleon then?
Because, the essence of its nature is chameleon-like to the Nth degree. Its very structure exudes illusion and misdirection, for which I think the label “chameleon” is apropos. Plus, everyone knows chameleons are cool.
Could a monster-sized infinite chameleon be hiding right under your nose right this very second?
Impossible! Unscientific! Illogical! Just a silly thought experiment! Mere philosophy! Balderdash!
Maybe. Or maybe… if you stop for a second and consciously look around you, you’ll notice that you’re inside the infinite chameleon right now! After all, where else could you be?
Perhaps you are the infinite chameleon, hiding from itself!
Granted, such a discovery would be rather implausible, outrageous, and embarrassing to admit. After all, how could a chameleon hide himself from himself? But then again, it is a chameleon we’re talking about here. Have you seen how regular chameleons hide in the jungle? They’re pretty good at it. And they’ve only mastered 1 degree of freedom. Imagine what an infinite chameleon could do to hide himself from you.
Maybe you can spot his hoof-prints in the sand ;)”
“Reality is the most efficient simulation of itself.
Take a moment to think about this. Because it’s utterly profound.
Imagine you wanted to simulate all of reality in a computer — a programmer’s wet dream. Seems reasonable at first glance: let’s just keep building larger and larger computers, filling them with ever-more complex physics equations, more and more decimal points, and eventually we’ll get there.
But, notice, it’s actually impossible. Why? Because eventually we’d need a computer the size of all of reality in order to hold all the elements we’re simulating. But then where would its mechanism be located? Outside of reality? No, clearly not possible. Inside of reality? Also not possible because then some part of reality would have to be reserved for the location of the mechanism, which would be un-simulated. The computer’s CPU, RAM, and circuitry — no matter how efficient — would need to be occupying some part of reality. Notice that to simulate reality as a whole, your simulation must also simulate itself, ad infinitum. So your simulation must be smaller than reality itself.
Imagine we make our simulation, but it runs on a magical computer. This computer is magical because it has no mechanism. Which means it doesn’t even exist! So we just have pure simulation occurring in a sort of vacuumless vacuum without any hardware. Well… Ta-da! That’s reality! You’re in it right now!
Reality is the ultimate simulation. It’s an instantaneous, effortless, complete simulation of everything possible, afloat in a vacuumless vacuum. It’s completely direct, which means — and here’s the really mindblowing part — that the simulation has no mechanism! It’s so efficient, the middleman — the computer — isn’t needed. The “computer” in which reality runs is literally void! Reality just simply is itself. “Ising” is the magical computer.
This is the essence of mysticism. And it actually squares quite nicely with logic. Logic should tell you that you cannot fit a superset inside a subset, and that everything must have at least one unknowable mystical source, because explanation always relies on at least one ungrounded and irreducible thing. Turns out that reality as a whole is that one irreducible, unexplainable thing. But interestingly, this one thing turns out to explain itself perfectly by virtue of it being Absolute Infinity, beyond which nothing can be, because it already is everything possible.
The most astonishing thing about reality is that it has no rules or limits at its outer-most edge. It knows itself simply by being itself, not by some indirect mechanism like computer hardware clumsily shuffling around bits. That’s simply not needed. Although this seems impossible, you have to remember that reality is the ultimate tyrant. It can do whatever the fuck it wants because there is nothing outside to stop it. Which means that it is not subject to the laws of physics or mathematics or even logic. Which means it is not a mechanical system, it’s a magical system. Not metaphorically magical, but actually magical.
Rational people struggle to understand this because they think that admitting the magic of reality’s being conflicts with the physical sciences. But there is no conflict. When we say that reality is magic, we don’t mean that you cannot calculate the trajectory of a rocket using Newtonian mechanics, or that microwave ovens work by voodoo. We mean the very existence of reality as a whole is magic. We mean that science will never, ever, ever, ever, ever account for reality’s being mechanically. Because the ultimate mechanism of reality is instantaneous being, or Absolute Infinity. That’s what it is! No symbols, ideas, equations, models, or simulations — no matter how detailed or complex — will ever be Absolute Infinity. Only one thing can be Absolute Infinity, and that’s all of reality as a whole. You can use science to explain fragments of reality, but you cannot use science to explain reality as a whole, because in order to do that, you must BECOME reality as a whole — which ceases being science, because science is a part, not a whole. Science is like a computer simulation. It needs space within reality to run, so it will always remain a subset of reality.
Get it? The logic of it is quite basic.
A perfect simulation or model of all of reality is simply the same thing as reality itself. What makes simulations and models useful in the first place is that they are only partial. You wouldn’t know what to do with the whole if you had it. It’s too much.
Imagine you go to the ATM to withdraw some money. The ATM has two buttons: 1) $500 dollars, 2) infinite dollars. You think, “Infinite dollars?!!! Wow! Sounds great!” So you press button #2. Except you don’t realize that infinite dollars means that so many bills will pour down from the sky that all your bones will be crushed, and your family half-way around the world will also get crushed as the whole Earth becomes covered with bills out to the edge of the universe, until the entire universe collapses into one super-massive black hole.
Hey! Maybe that’s how the Big Crunch happens? So please, contain your greed.”
“Try to imagine how unaware of the larger cosmos these little lifeforms are. Now imagine that you as a human are as unaware of a higher reality as these little guys are of human reality. This gives you a proper sense of how limited your consciousness is and how much more you have to become conscious of.
Your body is a super-organism composed of billions of tiny individuated organisms all working together perfectly to create the larger unity that is the human you. Yet none of those organisms are aware of the larger unity they create. Likewise, humans have no idea of the larger unity they create. And so it goes to infinity. Such is the intelligence of God’s design. The intelligence of it is infinite.
Consciousness is alive at all scales, from infinitely small to infinitely large. In fact there is no such thing as small and large because the scale extends infinitely far in all directions and all dimensions. There is no difference in scale between a human, a moss piglet, and the Milky Way galaxy.
You are not truly awake until you are conscious of how intelligent consciousness is at all scales — of how every scale dovetails perfectly into higher and higher unities which extend upward to infinity. This is the body/mind of God, dreaming an infinite number of dreams and interweaving them together seamlessly into one Grand Unity. A cradle for infinite life. A fractal of all possible lifeforms, branching out forever — your human self is one tip of one branch.”
Many souls who truly wish to attain mastery in the highest degree, will often choose the greatest challenges. This is mainly that the greater the challenges overcome, the greater the caliber of the soul, and thus the greater the soul purity and indeed, the soul diamond within. ~ Unknown
Divine operation, my mind a revolving centre
Expansion and fuller expression
Snowflakes of celestial energy
Soft thunderous bursts of consciousness
United recognition of divinity within oneself
Initiates planetary evolution
The sanctum within you of boundless, limitless, unconditioned
Capacity to create infinite
Entranced by the frames
Absorbed within the reality of many
Freezing images that are fluid
Arresting the infinite within the finite
Circling the square, squaring the circle
Attached to the illusion of constant
Paralysed by the scorpions sting.
The capacity we have to apportion with others is astounding
The heart has buttressed much resounding
Fed those who were hungry for love
Learning to expand, not contract in the face of loss
A spiritual war for the soul and hearts of man in the gross
It is only with the heart that one can pierce through boundaries
What is essential is invisible to the eye
Goodbyes are only for those who see with the physical faculties
For those who see with the vision of the heart, there are no endings
Cyclical illusory conclusions and introductions
A well of infinite evergiving heart, where all life emerges from
Sealing heart to heart through compassion
Quite simply, they bore an unbolted anahata
The seat of the soul
A life time measured in heart beats
The suble way the heart speaks to the ones it calls
Defrosted cold vessels with the the heat of love
Search for healing words and embed them into your wounds
Only God can fill the empty garden of hearts we all ship around.
