How can you get any more information that all the information that's already available.
For myself, it is as simple as closing my eyes and taking deep breaths to engage in active imagination
during moments of deep contemplation
that allows for introspection and insights to arise. However, I have found that the age old meditative practice of gazing at a flower (tree, blade of
grass, sky, sunsets, bird, etc) is more effective and produces far more profound insights for me.
"To see a World in a Grain of Sand And a Heaven in a Wild Flower; Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand; And Eternity in an hour" ~ William
The totality of everything that is, as the absolute objective reality, already contains "infinite information".
I agree. There are many ways of unfolding what is enfolded
- catching glimpses (remembering fragments of) our true nature and/or truth of our
Being and the flow of creation. However, it is always limited insight we receive due to the veil our minds create. As the old saying goes, "You can
know it all or be it all, but you cannot be both at the same time."
I chose my username because of my life experiences and joined this site because of the metaphysics forum. However, I'm not a fan of new age thought,
but I do love the metaphysics community here on ATS. Although I strayed to other forums of interest, I pop in and out of this forum every now and
then. I mention this because the philosophy you have shared kind of ties into what the word 'involution' means to me through experience:
"As an example, the so-called descent of the Monad into matter means an involution or involving or infolding of spiritual potencies into material
vehicles which coincidentally and contemporaneously, through the compelling urge of the infolding energies, unfold their own latent capacities, unwrap
them, roll them forth; and this is the evolution of matter." – Gottfried de Purucker Re: Involution (esoterism)
Still need to read through and study the paper. Had something to do with entropy, but yeah I see what you mean.
External information is always good to seek, but it should never be ones primary go to source in forming their philosophies. To study yourself through
becoming introspective will provide much more insight - it will *square* things up. Also, becoming aware of the synchronicity that exist in personal
life experiences will give one a clearer understanding into the nature of mind (beliefs) and how it interpenetrates and interconnects with the fabric
Gnosis has been commonly expressed throughout the ages in gnostic *circles* as: attaining the knowledge of transcendence arrived at by way of interior
I encourage you to become more introspective and less inclined to study the work of others, my friend.
The author,James Redford, of the article: The Physics of God and the Quantum Gravity Theory of Everything; needs to be reminded that his theory is
just a theory...
Then again, what isn't?
