all things are possible when they are imagined, but it does not make them true.
Incredulity and bias only shows you have no platform of your own to reveal your reasoning. Like all the threads I author, I show my foundation with
both science and the higher axioms found in the Bible. Your comments so far have no foundation other than your own opinion. You were asking about
Here is a good quote from Buddha:
"FOR BEHOLD YOUR BODY A PAINTED PUPPET, A TOY, JOINTED AND SICK AND FULL OF FALSE
IMAGINATIONS, A SHADOW THAT SHIFTS AND FADES."
Or this one from Rumi the Sufi:
Rumi said: He does not see the Master at this
moment because in truth the desire that ﬁlled him,
namely to see the Master, was a veil hiding the
Master. So it is with all desires and affections, all
loves and fondnesses that people have for every
variety of thing—father, mother, heaven, earth,
gardens, palaces, knowledge, things to eat and
drink. The lover of God realizes all these desires
are truly the desire for God, and they are all veils
covering humanity’s eyes. When we pass into the
next world and behold Reality without these
veils, then we realize all those were veils and coverings,
and that our true quest in reality is for one
thing. All difﬁculties are then resolved, we hear in
our hearts the answer to all questions, and everything
is seen clearly face to face.
It is not God’s way to answer every problem
separately, but with one answer all questions are
satisﬁed. All at once the total struggle is resolved.
In the same way, in winter everyone puts on warm
clothes and a leather jacket, and then creeps for
shelter from the cold. So too all plants, trees, and
shrubs, bitten by the cold, remain without leaves
and fruit, storing and hiding their goods and
nourishment inwardly so that the grasp of winter
will not reach them. When spring, in a single
epiphany, answers their requests, then all their
various problems, whether human, animal or
plant, are resolved, and those secondary symptoms
disappear. Then all put forth their heads,
and realize the cause of their misery.
God has created these veils for a good purpose.
For if God’s beauty were displayed without a veil,
we would not have the power to endure it.
Through the intermediary of these veils we derive
life and enjoyment.
Look at the sun. Through its light we can distinguish
good from bad, and ﬁnd warmth. Trees
and orchards become fruitful from its heat, and
their fruits—unripe, sour and bitter, become
mature and sweet. Through its inﬂuence, mines of
gold and silver, rubies and carnelians are produced.
But if the sun were to come nearer it
would bring no beneﬁt whatsoever. On the contrary,
the whole world and every creature would
be burned up and destroyed.
When God reveals Itself through a veil to the
mountain, those slopes become fully arrayed in
trees and ﬂowers and verdure. However, when
God brings revelation without a veil, It destroys
the mountain and breaks it into atoms.
Mater is the Mother. Matter is the veil. I don't expect you will understand this until you look past the surface of your bias.
