a reply to: Blazetheways
Disclaimer: I haven't yet read all of your OP. I just wanted to post a brief reply based on a single aspect of the 'quest of knowledge', which of
course we are all bound up in one way or another - if not now, then when? If not us, then who?
So the piece I wanted to comment upon is as follows, from your OP:
I believe [ETA - referring to DNA] is just a 3D representation of something 2D that actually codes for our quantum reality.
Scientists studying the holographic principle are looking for a 2D surface that creates reality.
I would say that I'm fairly well certain of this chain in my reasoning, in reference to your '2D as source of 3D' thoughts. As a strong proponent of
the Christian faith; but not a creationist, I will add vehemently - I have worked on tempering my faith with science & metaphysics, as it is the
result of mystic experience. First and foremost, my faith springs from deeply synchronous events, which were the unequivocally certain response to
the prayer of a desperate man. I only mention these few words in reference to faith to set the scene for the way I have approached this problem.
The problem I refer to is the same as the one you are looking at - but I see the question as arising organically from a serious consideration of the
nature of reality - crucially, this endeavour can only be hoped as to be accomplished by the intellectually honest, agnostic mindset. The reason I
say this, is that when one begins to look into the quantum, even etheric mysteries from a position of intellectually honest, agnostic incision of
thought, one will begin to notice strange things occurring, both in mind & in reality. There is a certain reason why things are the way they are -
but I suppose the main issue at hand is the suggestion that a 2D surface 'codes' for the 3D experience we have of the reality we inhabit (some would
be adamant that it is 4D, others up to 5D -including myself - and still more up to 13D, or thereabouts).
Having looked into the issue of TOPOLOGY, as an absolute layman, guided competently through the masterworks of a couple of very intelligent & wise
authors, the idea is that, as you posit, some other dimensional construct 'codes' this reality. One could say that our 3D/4D/5D reality is certainly
a multi-dimensional affair, the very terms we use explicitly make it so. The trouble is visualising the topology. Even if someone can visualise in 5
dimensions, it is unlikely that they can explain what they see there in a way that most people would understand. Generally, even those who can
visualise it probably don't know how to reason with it - and those who CAN reason with it, are perhaps even less likely to be capable of properly
explaining it to the layman. Those who are interested in the subject will often try to paste one theory to another, in the hope that it will 'take',
and make sense in enough measure that someone else can come along & confirm the theory, explaining the bits and pieces which were unaccounted for,
essentially people working collaboratively as their very own communal 'god of the gaps'.
With absolute respect, because clearly you have thought deeply about this, I believe your approach is lacking proof of causality in DNA (some sort of
recursive, retroactive cause..?) I see that you may be considering reality as incubator for life, and I would share that view. However, claiming
that reality codes for DNA is, I believe, a misapplication of the Truth which you intuit.
It is my belief that the Universe, in all of its dimensional constructs - which intersect & transpose the informational content of themselves,
translating aspects of the highest truth - is gently prompting us with the beginnings of that truth in a piecemeal form over time, such as we 4D'ers
can understand. Even those understandable parts are incomprehensible in any logical sense to 98% of the people occupying this planet at this time.
I hold that an intervention in the natural progression of evolution brought us to the status we now 'enjoy' - the secrets laid bare, but barely anyone
to comprehend, because we are simply wired in such manner (deliberately so) that the vast majority of our 'godhood' (intellect) attribution, is
squirreled away in the folds of the neo-cortex, inaccessible to any but the prodigy, the savant, the eccentric, & the saint/ascetic - glimpsed in
dreams, but no more. Intervention disrupted the natural progression of life on this planet, and thereafter a crisis prompted yet another
intervention, cumulatively leading to what legend has called 'the Fall of mankind'. We were never supposed to have 'gods' in the early years of our
evolution. The crimes of one set led to entrapment of a second set - at least two interventions, yet three or even more, perhaps an incredible
number. I believe in myriad interventions, most of which remain unknown, shaping the path we now walk.
I recently had a dream, in which I found myself on a paradisical beach, a beautiful lagoon with pure white sand, turquoise waves - a very gentle shelf
of white sand dipping into the ocean, with this shallow lagoon flanked on both sides by tall rock formations, covered in jungle-like plants, cliffs
soaring a hundred feet or more up into the bright blue sky. It was very similar to the sorts of island chains found around Indonesia, Thailand &
similar. I was subjected to intense 'realism' - I was enmeshed with the force of Time, ages passed with introspective intermissions. I was killed, I
awoke; tortured, reborn many times; loved, and lost. Reality was turned upside down & inside out, myself with it, a psychedelic journey as grandiose
as any experiment with '___' - yet more so, and somehow both deeply disturbing, and powerfully meaningful at one & the same time - because the scene
retained its deep realism, its proportions: a vector relationship of Truth between the apparent divisions of form - really only one form, a form which
includes every single part of ourselves, with a multi-dimensionality which cannot be overlooked if we are searching for clues to the ultimate purpose,
thereby satisfying our quest for knowledge.
It has been said that the brain has the capacity to act as a 'reality generator' - after all, what are dreams but realities invented in our head? So
it would seem. Even the reality we perceive in our waking hours is constructed within the soft darkness within, projected as a whole upon the
substrate surrounding & suffusing us - our very soul is part of it, and yet we are intended to retain our selves, unique & beautiful, when viewed from
the proper perspective. "All have fallen short.." We are gone but not forgotten - ever present, yet never ourselves present to be fully seen or known
by others. Never truly dying; the death of the body like the shedding of a robe, worn about ourselves, having evolved - and faded with us, since our
first dreams in the womb.
Which brings us neatly back to DNA.
I do not pretend to understand the deep mysteries of our DNA, but I do know that there is sufficient mystery that we should tread with reverence, in
the halls of the Universe, a castle for the King - all of us courtiers in a system which demands our attention, our persistence, our cooperation, our
diligence, our strength. I will read the rest of your thread before commenting specifically on DNA.
The surface can only be a sphere; infinite ocean, islands of wonder.
