I honestly can't stress enough the glory that compassion could bring. If there ever was an ascension, it would definitely be possible with compassion. Like I said, I can't describe what I'm seeing accurately with words, so I just urge you all to try a true compassionate way of life and see for yourself how deep the rabbit hole goes, because as I see it, there is no end to it and it keeps getting better and better as you go down. You just gotta jump.
Before I try to explain what I think the song (forty-six & 2 by TOOL) means, it is necessary for you to know several metaphysical concepts. I got almost all of this information on this page from a book the band recommended on their 1994 newsletter called Nothing in This Book is True, but It's Exactly How Things Are by Bob Frissell.
The most important concept Frissell explains (He learned it from one Drunvalo Melchizadek.) is sacred geometry. Sacred geometry is the path in which the creator moved in the void during Genesis. It forms the basis of everything in the universe, including mathematics. The Flower of Life, as seen in the picture to the right, includes in it all the necessary information for the creation of life. Frissell explains hows this figure is derived.
Currently, human beings are in the second level of consciousness, 44 and 2, but shortly they are expected to evolve in the next level. Supposedly, ascended masters have prepared the path for humans to change. 1998, was in fact, supposed to be when the change occurred. However, it looks like it might be postponed several years due to the abominable state of the world. For one to enter the 46 and 2 state, it seems it would take a mental and spiritual change. (Opening your third eye if you will.) It would require one to have a deep understanding of the world, themselves, and their consciousness. Most people are unaware that some people have vowed to change themselves and move up a level.
"Our model differs in that we exploit the use of theoretical experimental evolution combined with artificial neural networks to actually prove that yes, there is an actual cause-and-effect link between needing a large brain to compete against and cooperate with your social group mates."
"Our extraordinary level of intelligence defines mankind and sets us apart from the rest of the animal kingdom. It has given us the arts, science and language, and above all else the ability to question our very existence and ponder the origins of what makes us unique both as individuals and as a species," concluded PhD student and lead author Luke McNally.
Three fundamental discoveries of current neuroscience will forever change the way we understand human nature. The first is that novelty, enriching life experiences, and physical exercise can activate neurogenesis--new growth in the brain--throughout our entire lifetime
The second is that such experiences can turn on gene expression with-in minutes throughout the brain and body to guide growth, development, and healing in ways that could only be described as miraculous in the past. Like lightning and thunderclap, these two discoveries are so startling and unexpected that we hardly know what to make of them.
The third discover follows as a natural implications of the first two. We no really know that "every recall is a reframe." That is, whenever we recall an important memory, nature opens up the possibility for us to reconstruct it on a molecular-genomic level within our brain. That is, we are constantly engaged in a process of creating and reconstructing the structure of our brain and body on all levels, from mind to gene. The profound implications of these three discoveries stretch our imagination. They suggest"
- how we can use our consciousness to co-create ourselves; - new approaches to stress, psychotherapy, and the healing arts; - a new bridge between the arts, humanities, science and spirit.
"Sharing others' emotional states provides the observers a somatosensory and neural framework that facilitates understanding others' intentions and actions and allows to 'tune in' or 'sync' with them. Such automatic tuning facilitates social interaction and group processes," says Adjunct Professor Lauri Nummenmaa from the Aalto University, Finland.
"The results have major implications for current neural models of human emotions and group behavior. It also deepens our understanding of mental disorders involving abnormal socioemotional processing," Nummenmaa says.
"The strongest selection for larger, more intelligent brains, occurred when the social groups were first beginning to start cooperating, which then kicked off an evolutionary Machiavellian arms race of one individual trying to outsmart the other by investing in a larger brain. Our digital organisms typically start to evolve more complex 'brains' when their societies first begin to develop cooperation." explained Dr Andrew Jackson.
Human emotions are highly contagious. Seeing others' emotional expressions such as smiles triggers often the corresponding emotional response in the observer. Such synchronization of emotional states across individuals may support social interaction: When all group members share a common emotional state, their brains and bodies process the environment in a similar fashion.
"According to terror management theory, people deal with their awareness of mortality by upholding cultural beliefs and seeking to become part of something larger and more enduring than themselves, such as nations or religions," said Jamie Arndt, study co-author and professor of psychological sciences. "Depending on how that manifests itself, positive outcomes can be the result."
One major implication of this body of work, Vail says, is that we should "turn attention and research efforts toward better understanding of how the motivations triggered by death awareness can actually improve people's lives, rather than how it can cause malady and social strife." Write the authors: "The dance with death can be a delicate but potentially elegant stride toward living the good life."
Evolution is a term to define only one organism,
and that's the self.
The self is the Universe, the self is the Alpha and Omega,
God, and Infinity,
and that's the only thing that evolves, because we're all part of the self.
Nothing goes through an evolutionary process alone
or without direct benefit to the whole.
So when you begin to think that there's this controlling elite,
this controlling hand behind the curtain leading the planet to destruction,
when you think the end is near, the Apocalypse, Armageddon,
and when you think we as a species are doomed...
It is not THEY, it is YOU that brought this about.
And for a very good reason...
You are evolving.
We are static in particle form while the entire Universe is kinetic in nature. Information/consciousness grants us the control to manifest (assemble/reassemble) reality.
Becoming aware of this concept allows you to generate less resistance through the vortices passing bits of information/consciousness (such realities are in constant cycle). If we were to "link up" and work together, information/consciousness is passed on a more robust scale (creating even less resistance), and "cycling" understanding at far greater rates. And that's all Life is... Understanding.
Path to higher consciousness begins with childlike innocence.
Promote action to gain various types of understanding.
Condense units of such understanding to council.
Integrate this council into a single director.
Utilize director to reach out to others.
Reach out to others via sacrifice.
Become sacrifice to expand.
Expand to unite as "One."
One: Meaning of Life
Awareness: cognizance, knowledge, acknowledging, realization, spectrum,
Possibility: chance, substance, thing, choice, option, result, capability,
Infinite Awareness of Possibility...
Example: The awareness of balance.
Example: The awareness we are similar.
Infinite Possibilities of Awareness...
Example: The possibility we are similar, and can relate to each other as such.
So on and so forth...
Through Infinite Possibilities and Infinite Awareness...
We are unique. We are similar. [We are one | All at once.] "Time being relative"
In Existence we have Infinite Awareness and Infinite Possibility through enlightening experiences.
Example: This World (Life) is an enlightening experience.
The World (Life) is not Limited. Disappear Limitations... Existence is Infinite.
Fear is a Limitation. Disappear Fear... Existence is never Threatened.
Example: The death of this World (Life) is simply Fear.
Possibilities for being: Passionate, compassionate, structuring, transcendent, intimate, vulnerable, expressive, fulfilling, loving, unconditional, expansive, transforming,
So on and so forth...
Being: Infinite possibilities.
Existence: Infinite Awareness of Being in Infinite Reality.
Example: One comprehends Everything One can render while passing through Every occasion of the Universe.
Through the Existence of God with Infinite Awareness of Being in an Infinite Universe we are One. Let it be in an Infinite Universe One Exists as Infinity. The Infinity is God. Embrace God as One. [We are all One.]
