I would like to throw in a few bones to chew on. So, feel free to chew and bark if you like.
Why is there anything instead of nothing? That is one of the big questions, obviously. Books have been written about it, and many opinions and beliefs
about the answer exists. They are all wrong. Every single one of them is wrong. Because the question does not have an answer. It doesn't have an
answer because the premisses for the question is off the mark. It defies logic even in the "normal" sense.
It pre-supposes that we know what "anything" is and that we understand what "nothing" is. Then we ask "why" one is, as opposed to the other. It
does not compute. We do not know what anything is at all. Just ask any specialist in any branch of science. If they dare admit it, they'll say they
have no clue. Just ask a phycisist to explain what really takes place in the double-slit experiment. They have no idea either. Yet they give it funny
names like "collapsing of the waveform". As if giving it a name will justify its existence as a tangible concept that we understand. Many pretend to
understand it because they believe others do. It's so funny.
Then we have "nothing". Noone has ever been able to accurately describe nothing. (man, there are many puns here). What if "nothing" isn't
understandable at all within the totality of our abilities to comprehend things? What if it lies just outside of it? Would it matter because we would
be oblivious to it? This could very well be the case, but it is impossible to know for sure. Thus "nothing" also invalidates the other part of the
assumption in the question.
So, the very falsness of the question itself points to the possibility that there isn't anything here at all. You following all this? Maybe this is
nothing appearing as everything? Maybe this is all there is? Maybe this is everything and nothing at the same time?
But you see, you can't have nothing without something and vice versa. You can't have something without nothing. What we call reality is both real
and unreal at the same time. It is so strange and incredibly beautiful, yet completely ordinary and mysterious at the same time, it baffles the mind
(actually the mind can't get this at all. It is all that is left after the collapse of the ego, person or whatever makes "you" you, -mind
included). It can't be described.
You may agree or disagree with me here, but there isn't any flaw in the logic, only shortcomings in my ability to express it. There aren't any logic
here either, though it may appear to be so. This is not logical and the mind can't get this.
These things I am talking about here are not new. They have been adressed by many for millenia. The "Tao Te Ching" and "Baghavad-Gita" to name a
few. This is about dualism and non-dual awareness, as it is sometimes called. However, these are also concepts and somewhat misses the mark. First of
all: an enlightened person is an oxymoron. It can't be done. There is no such thing as an enlightened person. Because enlightenment (more correctly
would be to call it liberation) is what's left when the "person" disappears, when the "energy" that makes up "you" collapses and returns to
nothingness. That's why it's more correct to name it liberation - because freedom is recognized when it happens. "You" are not free because
"you" are the very chains that bind you. So, there is freedom but no one (person) who is free. Yet freedom is all there is.
Since we can't say what nothing is, it sometimes can be helpful to say what it is not. "It isn't this or it isn't that". It soon becomes apparent
that nothing in a way gets defined by everything that it is not. Nothing is everything that it could possibly be, but isn't. The "real" part of
this is what is happening, -out of an infinite sea of eternal possibilities of what nothing isn't, but could have been, had it been something.
There is nothing new in nothing! There is no becoming. There is no evolution. There is no meaning to anything, because "nothing" contains the
possibility for every meaning there is. There is nowhere else, because this is everywhere and nowhere at the same time. There is no time because every
moment is timeless. There is nothing "out there". It's only this! Nothing appearing to be everything! Free will? No. Karma? No. Cause and effect?
No. This is all part of the dream. The illusion. This is Maya, and she is very, very clever. She will do anything to keep the dream going. But once
you start questioning the dream, the awakening is soon to follow. Is there a purpose to all this? No, of course not. Because nothing contains the
possibility for every purpose there is. It is a very peculiar nothing we are dealing with here. And it is frightening! This Moksha, Satori, Nirvana,
Sahmadi, Awakening, Enlightenment or Liberation or whatever one chooses to call it, means the death of "you". You are your own hinderance in your
search for Oneness. What "you" search for cannot be found because it is the absence of "yourself"!
Actually, there might not be oneness either. There was a point to it when the sages of old termed it advaita (a=not, dvaita=2) not-two (or non-dual as
some say) instead of oneness. Oneness implies something, which then makes you miss the mark. Not-two is alot closer.
The other thread I made about ending humanity was "dreamtalk". It was meant for the dream and it fed "the story". That was it's purpose. This
post is the juicy stuff. It may point somewhere (or more correctly: to nowhere). "The Story" contains everything you believe about yourself and
everything else. Thoughts, opinions, judgements, self-image (!), image of others etc. It is only when all this falls away that clear seeing remains.
Enlightenment isn't about becoming or gaining anything. It's about un-becoming. About loosing something: the false self. There is no compromise to
be found in this.
Those who understand: things are as they are.
Those who do not understand: things are as they are.
You see? This is the sort of jokes that crack me up these days. It can't be normal! And of course it isn't (no pun this time).
Until next time.
Just saying: there is nothing "wrong" with "dreaming". The point is not to wake up. There is no point and there is no purpose or meaning to your
life! Life is its own meaning. It has nothing to do with "you". Everything is perfect as it is. No snowflake ever falls on the wrong place. There is
nothing "you" can do to change or influence any of this anyway. Because "you" and "me" are illusions. Nothing is happening by chance, yet
nothing is planned. There is no supreme being pulling the strings here! Everything comes out of nothing, and everything collapses into nothing. What
you are is the eternal stillness that precedes all things. You are the emptiness that makes everything happen. Apparently.
