The problem with not knowing what we don't know is that we don't know it. There may be components of individual elements that twist into who knows what kind of dimensions. But we don't have the concepts, the equipment, or maybe even the intellectual ability to figure it out. We're still extremely hampered by our own perceptual and intellectual abilities when we try to make sense of existence. Just clever monkeys.
It's very possible, maybe even probable, that we may never understand how the universe and the various components work. Too stupid.
"...This atomic description of the elements is accurate, but as one moves into the subtler realms of consciousness you will find that things become more metaphorical.
"Let's take a journey together to clarify this. When you pick up a rock lying on the surface of the planet, you are paradoxically using the Earth to pick up earth because your physical body literally is the Earth in a temporary standing wave pattern. Indeed, all the silicas, calciums and carbons that make up the physical body come from the Earth. So in a sense it is the Earth herself that is picking up a part of itself in the form of a rock. If you were able to go into the structure of that rock, or the structure of your body, you could study portions of the atomic table and note the various chemical elements that make up both the rock and the physical body. This is at the simplest level of the molecular and atomic structures. If you were to go deeper into the atomic structure, you would open up into something that is pre-atomic, something that your physics call the quantum field. Out of this quantum field, which is still greatly misunderstood, the actual atoms and subatomic particles emerge. As these atomic structures join, you have the molecules and elements in the Periodic Chart of the Elements well known to your chemistry.
"If you move deeper into the quantum field, subtler and subtler, you reach a point where you are in consciousness itself. For the foundation, the actual reality of the quantum field, will soon be discovered as consciousness2. So the physical elements are but an out-picturing from consciousness at the subtlest, deepest level of matter. As one moves into deeper or subtler strata of consciousness, one makes contact with what the ancients recognized as the Four Scared Elements. These, too, are held in consciousness. They are concepts, but not mere mental concepts. They are alive! When you get to this level your language is extremely limited."
