The Conscious Flow
Have you ever wondered where you go when you’ve gone under the surgeons knife and been rendered unconscious, when the curtains go down and the stage goes black for hours at a time in the conscious world but appears to pass almost instantaneously when you move into the delta realm of some-thing else. When you become unconscious your not asleep. Your not dreaming.
Consciousness is like a river, it’s a moving current. A force in motion. When you are conscious your awareness exists in a world of high vibrational information waves, this energetic (Light) information is passing through focused points (prisms) of awareness that we identify as the “now” moment in time, these “points” of awareness unfold from the source that is unseen but present every where and every when like the electromagnetic spectrum. These energy points are located in the head and chest regions and we commonly call them the brain and heart. The most powerful conduit exists as the heart vortex. The human heart is the star gate into the eternal nature of every being and it is by stepping into the realm of the heart that life changes.
Brain Wave Activity
Look at the first picture on this article and try to imagine the currents of binary information flowing into the center of the globe as electromagnetic (source conscious) waves being downloaded by the brain. These would correspond to the delta wave patterns in the above picture. This region of electromagnetic activity is infinitely vast and information is coming in and being projected out. This process creates a standing wave effect similar to what is seen in the animation below. In it’s simplest form the standing wave is like an on/off switch, a basis for freewill, the choice between yes or no, right and wrong, perhaps. Alternatively, you could look at it as a transistor-like process where information is simultaneously being received and transmitted. In each case, be it the hub of freewill or the control center to receive and transmit information both processes require an observer to will it’s power and translate (understand) the information.
Standing Wave (electron)
I have drawn attention to the research emerging from The Institute of HeartMath in other posts, research which shows the human heart is a powerful source of electric force/energy, the scope of it’s power can be measured by the size (strength) of the surrounding magnetic field. The above diagram shows the pulsing motion that every heart follows and the waves that propagate inwards and outwards define the scope of the magnetic field (each wave an electron) but also serves as a process to transmit (modulate) energetic information in and out – the basis for two-way communication. If we were to scale this process up in magnitude and power what kind of self similar manifestation might we perceive on a truly stellar level? From microcosm to macrocosm: as above so below.
IS consciousness a flow of wave information? When a person goes under the surgeons knife, chemicals and their compound molecules temporarily reduce, block or inhibit self awareness, the power transmission drops into the realm of delta activity, other waves like beta and alpha are no longer present. What was a powerful point of awareness that was able to sense at gamma ray level has lost it’s intense shine and is more like a soft glow. What is it about delta waves compared to similar wave patterns of radio, microwave and infrared that renders the person unable to be self aware and or even dream. What is it about this frequency that creates a state of unconsciousness.
What you might have noticed when comparing brain wave activity to cosmic electromagnetic activity is that as the energy wave begins to flatten through infrared, microwave and radio, self similar patterns unfolding. When brain wave activity is reduced into delta (radio, microwave and infrared regions) your awareness no longer has the ability to “see” the information. You lose consciousness. But that doesn’t mean you are losing awareness. At some primal level you have to be aware of who you are in order to return to the wake state as you. If there wasn’t a preexisting level of awareness as you descended into the realms of unconsciousness you would no longer be aware of your existence. This clearly doesn’t happen because we return to the awake state that we left.
Concerning the ebb and flow of consciousness: are we really in control of it… or merely observers of it? If you use the analogy of a river you can see how information (water and everything carried in it) flows as a current from one point, it’s beginning source (mountain peak), to another, it’s end source (the sea). In terms of self similarity consciousness is the water (energy information) unfolding from a source and ultimately returning to the same.
Anyone who has seriously tried meditation will understand that it isn’t possible to stop the flow of thoughts manifesting in your mind. This is a conundrum if you think about it. If you are in control of what you think, i.e. you produce your thoughts in real time based on what you are doing at any given time, then you should be able to stop thinking altogether – but you can’t. At best you can slow your thoughts to that of a trickle in order to observe them and intimately connect with them, but you can’t bring them to a complete standstill. If you can’t control the flow of your own thoughts, then who or what is?
A similar problem applies to emotions as well. Have you ever experienced intense heart ache from losing someone you love and tried to make the pain stop or go away, you can’t, you are powerless, you simply have to follow the process of time passing and accept that one morning you will wake up and the pain will be gone.
If consciousness is energy information it is a projection, a light show, after all, the cosmic electromagnetic spectrum represents different frequencies of Light dancing to a cosmic sized show.
The visible light wave lengths (above) correspond with the electromagnetic spectrum. There are seven wavelengths. Reality is a light show. A holographic projection.
Awareness and awareness of the self
Is there a difference between awareness and self awareness?
Awareness is the state or ability to perceive, to feel, or to be conscious of events, objects, or sensory patterns. In this level of consciousness, sense data can be confirmed by an observer without necessarily implying understanding. More broadly, it is the state or quality of being aware of something.
Self-awareness is the capacity for introspection and the ability to reconcile oneself as an individual separate from the environment and other individuals.
The difference between awareness and self awareness is interesting. I can be aware that the chunk of metal that sits under the bonnet/hood of my car is an engine, I can also be aware that the “engine” performs lots of processes, however, I am not aware of how those processes work, just that they exist. In other words, sensory date (information) keeps me informed about the presence of something without implying I understand the presence. This is the same principle being applied to unconsciousness, for example, there has to be a fundamental (preexisting) state of awareness that enables us to return to who we are after becoming unconscious, otherwise loss of awareness, if it was literal, would mean we would forget who we are the moment we lost “awareness” of our-self. But “something” draws us back.
From age 0 until around 15 to 18 months a baby is not self aware, clearly though a baby is aware, it is aware of people and the conscious world in which it finds itself in, in fact, when you look into a babies eyes they are alive with a vibrancy that brings absolute joy to anyone around them. Despite this natural “aliveness” the baby doesn’t have any understanding of what it is aware of. From an adult perspective a “newborn” clearly doesn’t understand because it has to learn. But is it a process of learning or a process of learning to remember?
Philosopher Raymond Tallis describes the mirror stage as “the cornerstone of Lacan’s oeuvre.” Lacan’s mirror stage is based on his belief that infants recognize themselves in a mirror (literal) or other symbolic contraption which induces apperception (the turning of oneself into an object that can be viewed by the child from outside of himself) from the age of about six months. Later research showed that, although children are fascinated with images of themselves and others in mirrors from about that age, they do not begin to recognize that the images in the mirror are reflections of their own bodies until the age of about 15 to 18 months.
|“The Brain & the Mind.” Psychology Volume 1. 2002: 117.||“Delta waves occur mainly in infants, sleeping adults or adults with brain tumors. Theta waves occur mainly in children ages 2–5 years old. Alpha waves occur in adults who have their eyes closed or who are relaxed. Beta waves mainly occur in adults who are awake, alert or focused.”||
The underlined information implies that babies awareness is in a state similar to dreamless sleep while adults simultaneously exist interconnected with the “wake” world. The delta realm is one step up from the zero flat line of silence or stillness. It’s symbolic of no movement. But that doesn’t mean that nothing exists. Nothing is a concept that cannot be observed whereas everything appears to be self evident. The zero plane, the firmament or mirror plane hides the absolute magnificence of the true Divine Self. If there didn’t exist this process of unfolding through the mirror plane as a reflection how would the infinite Self ever become self-aware of what it IS?
The Tree of Life
Look at the word Human, it has two syllables, (hu) and (man). The word “God” can be derived from the Sanskrit word “HU”. God is synonymous with light & sound. The HU has been used for thousands of years by various cultures and religious groups as a means to have greater conscious contact with an all pervading presence. The Egyptian and Greek traditions used HU as a reference to God. Sufi Mystic Saints of Tibet, Druidism and Kaballah use the word HU as the originating sound of the universe.
One of the common threads in the wisdom traditions of the world is the special place of the Divine Word in the creation theories. In this context, the sound archetype HU is particularly fascinating. It permeates the spiritual traditions of the Near-Eastern cultures. One can also find many examples of HU in the Indo-European languages. HU is one of the three primary sound archetypes of the Near-Eastern cultures along with YA and RA. For a general introduction to sound archetypes please see the article “Sound Archetypes”
White Light being split in a prism
The idea that the universe is a hologram is not new. Michael Talbot and many others offer fascinating insights about holograms being a basis for reality. A hologram is a light projection. HU being an ancient term for the light and sound of God the word Human becomes synonymous with describing a “Man of Light & Sound” or “Man of God”. If holographic principles apply to this reality then being Human is a projection of light and sound, albeit a very real one as Albert Einstein once observed when he remarked “Reality is an illusion albeit a very persistent one”.
There are seven basic frequencies (kingdoms) of visible light which also correspond with the wavelengths of the electromagnetic spectrum. Light is sound (audio frequency bands). Sound is vibration, so the electromagnetic spectrum that pervades everywhere in the universe is vibrating (moving) at different amplitudes. The highest vibrating frequency in the spectrum is gamma. Gamma corresponds with alpha brain waves which represent being awake and alert, i.e. aware and self aware. In the alpha state of awareness you might not be able to “see” the violent motion of the gamma world but your senses and high levels of awareness translate that motion into a world of solidity around you.
Ancient astrologists could identify seven great heavenly objects and assumed each was floating in a separate heaven. The number 7 in Biblical references symbolically represented perfect completion, as in the seven-day week, seven trumpets, the seven eyes and horns seen on the Lamb of God in The Book of Revelation, and the seventh in the generations of Adam: Lamech who was completely wicked, and Enoch who walked with God. Islamic scholar Ibn Kathir stated in his Tafsir that the seven heavens contained the moon, Mercury, Venus, the Sun, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn in that order, confirming the origin of the belief. The number also has a significance in Quranic numerology.
According to the Talmud, the universe is made of seven heavens (Shamayim):
Vilon (וילון), Also see (Isa 40:22) also called “arafel” see Even-Shushan dictionary
Raki’a (רקיע), Also see (Gen 1:17)
Shehaqim (שחקים), See (Ps 78:23, Midr. Teh. to Ps. xix. 7)
Zebul (זבול), See (Isa 63:15, I Kings 8:13)
Ma’on (מעון), See (Deut 26:15, Ps 42:9)
Machon (מכון), See (1 Kings 7:30, Deut 28:12)
Araboth (ערבות), The seventh Heaven where ofanim, the seraphim, and the hayyoth and the throne of the Lord are located.
If reality is the projection of seven primary color/sounds (frequencies) structuring everything that is seen and heard wouldn’t it use the same principles of holograms where Light (laser) is directed through mirrors/prisms to generate objects via information that is/and or is being carried by light. At a fundamental level, nature, would have to embody the qualities of a mirror/prism through which light can project. It would seem that it does. The fact that silicon, what we derive silica from, to make glass, is abundant in dust, sand, planetoids and planets would seem to imply that at their core, Earth and other planets are something like cosmic looking glasses.
7: Then the Lord God formed man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life and the man became a living soul.
Let’s not forget bible terminology. This would make man a looking glass, a prism through which the white light of the source shines and out of which refracts the seven colors of the rainbow.
Silicon is the eighth most common element in the universe by mass, but very rarely occurs as the pure free element in nature. It is most widely distributed in dusts, sands, planetoids, and planets as various forms of silicon dioxide (silica) or silicates. Over 90% of the Earth’s crust is composed of silicate minerals, making silicon the second most abundant element in the Earth’s crust (about 28% by mass) after oxygen.
Silica is used primarily in the production of glass for windows, drinking glasses, beverage bottles, and many other uses. The majority of optical fibers for telecommunications are also made from silica.
