So explain to me how, if you believe in a mind creating everything from nothing is that possible,
if that mind has no information, no input and no choice because it was always predetermined that nothing is an unsustainable state, as proven by everything existing
can a mind that can't be a mind, because no information, no input, no choice is there to be had,
be the "higher dimensional construct" that's always existing, while nothing exists?

You see the problem?


Within the Mind was the teleological totality of everything that can be. This was included in the Alpha-Omega bundle... it includes all of everything. We as children of this Totality also have untapped potential as we realize it is our birthright to assume the gift of the Cosmological Parent.

I believe in a higher collective Soul…so Yes there is a me…

Everyone's ability to think come’s from the whole…or is enabled by the whole…I like to think of it as the “Father and Son relationship….” It’s right up there with the expression “Outside of the Father I can do nothing”…

But it is still the Son (the individual) that makes freewill choices from it’s current limited experience…

So Yes…I do the thinking, with the help of the whole…

Is there anything solid?


Well, everything is made up of vibrating Atoms, a lot of which contains “empty space”…(although empty space is a bit of a mystery in itself)…so no…nothing is completely solid…But there is the appearance of something solid…

No division....no separation.


I agree…there is no separation…but there can be a perceived separation…just like there is a perceived experience of something Solid…

When I used the word “connection” I was using it in the context of a parallel between thought and this Foundationless Foundation…of course nothing is truly separate as everything is made up of the same stuff…

Also the word “connected”, can be used to describe everything being together i.e. Oneness….It’s just an expression describing the same idea/thing…

When people have had a spiritual experience for example, they often use the term…”I felt ‘connected’ to everything in the Universe” etc…They are essentially saying they were unaware of the oneness of everything beforehand….Of course they were always connected or at One with everything all along…They just weren’t aware of it until the experience…

Instead of quoting my post how about reading it and answering my question?
Or at least tell me what that mind would be and how it could function in nothing?

There was likely never nothing. Something always existed. This Mind always existed. Otherwise we must somehow come up with a rational idea about how something came from nothing. It is much more sensible that something always existed, and therefore a pure state of nothingness never was

The 'son' is not the individual.
The son is the visible image of the invisible God.

The ever present appearance.....which is here is the image in which apparent things appear.
Nothing can appear outside the present image.......even thoughts that make believe there is another 'time' appear in the present.

What you are actually is beyond words, but it would be not untrue to say you are nothing whatsoever other than pure, infinite, disembodied consciousness/intelligence; a field of miraculous infinite light; God dreaming itself; an infinite point of pure potential; or the infinite implications of nothing whatsoever.

The immediate presentation of this unspeakable actuality is the field of your experience, which is an instantaneously appearing virtual field of Radiant Presence as apparent qualities. This is the actuality of which every/ and any/ thing that you think exists consists. This is inclusive and complete; nothing whatever other than this field exists. In short, the entirety of Reality is the "bubble" of YOUR experience, the field of Radiant Presence, which alone exists.

This is the totality of Reality. This is not theoretical, but is actually, immediately real; always the case right here right now.

When a I say “The Son” I mean the higher collective Soul of any individual…That higher Soul is the real You/Son/Person…imo

Of course, if you keep cancelling everything down you arrive at ultimate source…which is the Father…but the whole point of existence is to Become and to be!…

Itzhak Bentov talks about the progression or the evolution of the Soul, which he believes is what the Universe and everything in creation is designed to do/achieve. This isn’t new in itself, as the secret society of Rosicrucian's hold similar beliefs…

I just recently discovered this video…it’s pretty fascinating stuff…

No…I’m not saying that thought is the Foundation of the Universe…but it is a possibility. What I was suggesting in my OP though, is that there is a clear parallel between this “Foundationless Foundation” and thought itself…

The “Foundationless Foundation” has the ability to move itself and “thought” appears to exhibit the same characteristic…I use the phrase “appears” because thought may rest in the “Foundationless Foundation” itself, and therefore couldn’t be it…if that makes sense…but at the same time it could be it! We don’t know for certain because we can’t reach the beginning of thought or the beginning of the Universe/All things…


I just thought I would expand and clarify a little bit more on the parallel between thought and this “Foundationless Foundation”…

When we go to grab a cup of coffee or think audibly in our mind…it’s our thoughts that activate those things; but what activates the thought in the brain…

In my mechanical clock example in my Op, something has to move the first cog, to get the other cogs moving/working…But with thought it appears to move/activate itself, which is the same characteristic displayed by the “Foundationless Foundation”…

And even if thought was just a cog or belonged to a series of cogs itself, something would still have to be those cog/cogs “original mover”…so either thought is the “original mover”, or it’s able to tap into that which is!

Just wanted to clarify it a bit further…

That is also the essential tenet of Jesus's teachings too. To be born again, not just by empty words of proclamation, but an actual metaphysical transformation into a new realm of existence (i.e. "the kingdom of Heaven"). This is not a post-mortem phenomenon, and i suppose this is the utmost fulfillment of out soul

I believe to think audibly is called "speaking"


And that's another issue with thought: it requires language/images/symbols.
I actually agree with one little bit of cooperton's post: there probably never was nothing.
But thought/mind is far too complex to put it at the beginning.
The force of life = consciousness
not in a sense of awareness, thought, mind or anything
but at its very basis: the decision to move, the ability to interact

Like maybe the Higgs Field giving stuff mass, decoherence in a two dimensional "there's the edge of another me" that might be the force of life
A very, very far stretch from mind or thought, or the God cooperton wants

Perhaps ceaaless change and entropy are signs that there is no real foundation at all...only a stack of semi-stable foundations which give the comforting but ultimately illusory impression that there is stability somewhere...

Thanks for the video.....I really enjoyed it. I will watch it again.


I would say that the manifestation is the 'son'.....That, which appears to exist.
The movie that is playing out is what is happening...... there isn't separate things doing the apparent separate things......it is the 'one' happening/being.
The ocean is waving.


Of course, if you keep cancelling everything down you arrive at ultimate source…which is the Father…but the whole point of existence is to Become and to be!

But 'you' can't do it because the source is doing everything..... consciousness is unfolding.

It is knowing itself.....

The father and son are one.......there really isn't anything else ever.

It already is.

It's a movie.

I meant speaking inside your mind…whereby you hear your own thoughts…i.e. without speaking with your mouth…

The question about thought was in relation to how does it get up and running…because it appears to happen instantaneously and autonomously…

But here’s the thing…all complexity and all possibility existed inside this Foundationless Foundation…For example the Big bang…was essentially all possibility condensed inside a single tiny point, which then began to expand outwards…of it’s own accord…

Have you heard of Quantum Entanglement…?...Einstein called in “spooky action at a distance"...

It’s a weird phenomenon whereby particles can somehow know instantaneously something about another particle, even when they are far apart from each other...It literally happens faster than the speed of light!

It’s kind of similar to neurons in the brain all linking up together to make us function…The Universe appears to be doing something very similar…

But “ceaaless change" is a process in and of itself though...and must therefore come from a starting foundation…

And as for “semi-stable foundations", (If they exist) would still be the ultimate plan of a Foundationless Foundation. You still also need a starting point or overall plan. Hence a Foundation that is Foundationless...

And this isn’t about wanting comfort…it's about using logic to discern that which always existed and holds everything else in place.

Glad you enjoyed it…I just discovered Itzhak Bentov last week!…

I was going to add the video to my Op but didn’t want to scare people away lol
