First off, I believe we underestimate our ability to know. I think ultimate knowing takes more work, dedication, and pure faith than almost anyone is
willing to give. People kind of always want to reassure their ego that it will be alright and able to function within the bounds of society when they
come out the other side of an experience. I think a big part of coming into knowing of these concepts as more than just theories is learning to just
let go. The ego is a big ol' bitch, and even when you think you're rid of it, there it is constricting your realm of thought because it was built to
be afraid of its death, and it's pretty much an out-dated survival mechanism of the old paradigm in which it was necessary for humans to be
competetive and decieving in order to survive.
In this day and age, with such massive networking and community living, sharing of information, cooperation of masses of people acting as ONE organism
(we call it the world economy at this point, and I guess money can be seen as a good thing in a certain light... not for the future, but for the way
it facilitated our growth as a globally communal species. A primitive stepping stone to one mindedness), this ego definitely gets in the way of our
Luckily, this isn't a static mechanism and can always be upgraded with something more accommodating to our progression. Even if you do not believe in
Taoism and oneness and the quantum theories, a simple observation of how humanity is functioning at this point will show you where we are headed. This
global community, facilitated by the global economy and especially by the birth of the internet, is a precursor to something else in the evolutionary
chain. Technology is born from biology, and therefore, it IS biology in a way. It is conscious evolution, taking the unconscious natural process and
speeding it up to lightspeed. Our biology has no choice but to (here's where it gets interesting) LEARN from our CONSCIOUS outward expression of our
mind's evolution, and adapt to it. Anyone who is unbiased and logical at once can see where this next step will take us... and anyone who can truly
with unfiltered thought analyze what is going on here will see that INDEED the consciousness IS determining reality, albeit on a collective scale...
but you can see the evolution of consciousness in relation to reality here on a first-hand basis, if you step back and observe the wider angle view.
First, it was hyperdimensional or omnipresent consciousness that shaped the universes and dimensions, then it was universal consciousness that shaped
the gas and dust into galaxies, galactic consciousness that shaped the stars, solar consciousness that shaped the solar systems, worldly consciousness
that shaped the world, eco-centric consciousness that shaped the species that evolved in different ecosystems, racial consciousness that shaped the
way a species adapted and split into more species, tribal consciousness that shaped the way communities of a certain species interacted with each
other in relation to their environment, and now another fractal of that fractal has formed in the shape of individual consciousness shaping the
function of the individual in relation to that environment, and in turn shaping the environment. Our outward evolution is just about complete, and the
next step is to go inward and evolve the very consciousness we use to observe our reality. Instead of passively observing and only affecting (the
effect of...) things based on outward cause, the only logical place to go is to actively observe and BE the cause. We once had to use our hands in
order to interpret our consciousness into a tangible reality, but now we are evolving towards cutting out the middle man and affecting reality
directly through conscious awareness of it. It's evolution, and anyone claiming to know where the limits of evolution are basically are living in a
fantasy world... because limits are just not there. The only limits are where our individual perceptions end... and this is a choice.
I believe we've already evolved enough to the point where we can consciously affect reality by just being aware. We see evidence of this in the
stories of Jesus, Moses, and other Biblical figures, the magi of the ancient and middle ages, the Yogis and Gurus of Eastern Traditions...some still
around today (levitation is real and currently being performed in India by scientifically verified gurus, by the way), and other various ancient and
lost gnosis. If there was no truth to it, these traditions would not have survived for thousands of years and inspired countless followers who devote
their lives to these teachings. It has to be a life changing experience, and belief is just too hollow to be able to inspire such radical changes in
perception and faith.
If you've ever had the God Mind experience, then you'll know that whatever perceptions you have could not possibly prepare you for the load of
information downloaded through a God Mind experience. Awareness is completely separate from existence, and yet is is completely intertwined with it.
Nothing in the cold socially accepted perception of "reality" can prepare you for this transcendental experience.
Again... faith is a knowing, and most people equate faith with belief. If you are just satisfied with belief, you may never know, and therefore you
will never have any true faith nor wisdom. Like someone else said in so many words, paradoxes are only for those who limit themselves to a certain
belief in what constitutes reality. If there is infinite possibility, then a paradox can always be worked out.
Perception is an active choice, not a static absolute.
This is why I KNOW that consciousness IS the basis of all reality. What would be the point of all these awe inspiring shapes, colors, and sensations,
if it weren't for the sole purpose of observation and evolution of/by a consciousness.
Did any of what I just said make sense? It's a hard concept to constrict into word format. Apologies if this sounds convoluted.
