In school, during physics class I asked the teacher a question.
I wanted to know the weight of a light wave.In my mind light waves had
to be pretty light or otherwise they wouldn’t be able to travel that
The teacher was a smart man who was smart enough not to lie to me.He
said that science did not have an aanswer to the question because we
still did not undersand the true nature of light.
Everything is made up of frequency fields of energy. Einstein said it
pronouncing that basically, everythingthat exists is energy.
Physicists are saying now that all matter is nothing but bundles of
trapped light. If this fact doesn’t change your life immediately, you
haven’t yet realized the deeper implications. Whether it is a
sound-wave, a smell, a feeling, or a sight, they are all
different frequencies of energy. They are all made of the same thing,
the difference between physical matter and a sound wave is the
difference between heating cold water in a microwave. It is the same
water, only at a different temperature. Your body is the same energy
as your favorite song but at a different frequency; same concept. This
deeper into the notion of the spiritual ‘field’ of interconnection
oneness. A vast field of one living, breathing energy; you are like a
drop in this breathtaking ocean of a universe. All one thing. It was
the brilliant Ryunosuke Satoro who said beautifully, “Individually we
are one drop. Together we are an ocean.”
Comedian,ventriloquist Taylor Mason has a routine, in which he calls up god.
This is an interactive routine.
Very bold in its format and it will test your wit and limits.
He talks to god for a while and then asks for audience participation-
he asks the audience to ask any questions they have for god.Obviously
this is a comdey routine,so people won’t ask about their dead poodles
or lost gold watches.
He does very well with snappy answers that are profound yet funny.
One of my favourites was the ever eternal audience question, “What is
the meaning of Life?”
And God says,(through Taylor Mason of course),”Are you Alive?”
“Then You know”
The audience bursts into laughter and at the very exact moment , a
precisley cued laugh track mixes and merges with real laughter.
Reality is effectively diluted with injected pre-recorded laughte.
But nobody knows to what extent reality is diluted,or if it is made
Isn’t is always the case.
This is how fruit nectars and juices are made.
Orange juice is orange juice concentrate, water, citric acid or
vitamin c (which is actually a preservative, but no one will tell you
that) and artificial sweetners and colour additives.
They use concentrates so that it is easier to transport them.They are
carried on tankers (or juice carriers).
An entire ship filled with juice concentrate.
After the ship is loaded, the ship staff usually gets a barrel of
leftover concentrate as a going away gift.The concentrate is so acidic
and corrosive that it is never used for human consumption.Instead they
use the left over concentrate to clean the decks.After one wash with
the concentrate, the grimy decks are squeaky clean and left smelling
like fresh oranges.
The race now (the word ‘now’ is misleading, since the race was on much
before you and I were born) in science to develop a Grand Unified
To find that ‘One Ring’that binds them all.
One theory that explains it all:the meaning of life,the secrets of
prime numbers or why your cat won’t listen to you.
The path of excess leads to wisdom. (or surely a quick death).
Moderation is for people hankering for a long boring life.(like me)
The higher you go in any field, you notice that there is perpetual
osmosis with other fields.
Your golf swing depends on your mind’s ability generate alpha and
theta waves and what you had for breakfast two mornings ago, and if
you are Tiger Woods, you cannot disregard anything that is a factor,
positive or negative.
Theretical physicists seem to go spiritual when they try to explain
quantum states or Large Hadron Collider experiments.
Top Chefs have to know about molecular chemistry and sometimes
freezing point of liquid nitrogen to be on top of their games.
The higher you climb on the knowledge ladder of one field, you find
that that the ladder bifurcates,trifurcates and the higher you go,
you’ll see more paths leading towards obscure and uncharted paths.
Thus when people assume that there is a singular source to all the
knowledge, then getting to the source becomes of tantamount to finding
the holy grail.(Oh but this is much bigger than the holy grail)
Or to find the GUT , the Grand Unified Theory.
But to assume that everything converges into a singular point is to
assume that universe is finite, or once was.
But ah, finiteness has its set of problems.
If this universe is finite, then what’s beyond it’s finite boundaries?
Then we also have to know about Nothing in order to know about Everything.
In order to have a Grand Unified Theory (that is truly complete), it
must include a Grand Nullified Theory.
But how do you nothing?
Moreover…how do you know that you know nothing.
You can know something,but you cannot know nothing.(aren’t you tired
of the same antics of the semantics?)
Here’s the same problem viwed from the perceptual angle.
What is the meaning of life?
God asks,”Are you alive?” “Yes”
“Then you know”
If we are alive and yet not know the meaning of life,how can we know
everything while being immersed in it.
But what if we know everything but cannot articulate it? At least not
in a way that we’d understand (or for that matter anyone else)
What if we are our own Grand Unified Theories?
Soon after writing this, I began reading ‘This Book is Not Real’ by
Chris L Campbell.(Google it, for God’s sake, Google it)
I was struck by the similarities in the views.I had never read the
book, nor heard of the author ever before.
Seven pages through the book, I realize that we share the same paths
and we are on a similar journey.
“Back in my younger years, I use to be borderline obsessed with
psychology and had a very limited vision of life to go along with the
obsession. I was studying psychology books and getting a head start
for my ‘dream’ (thank God that’s all it was) to become a psychologist;
learning about how our minds work, how we live out our lives, and why
we make the choices we do became a passion. I was like one of those
weird guys that observed birds all day, except my bird was human (If
that makes sense…). Learning body language, basic NLP
(Neuro-Linguistic Programming) and psychological techniques I could
have told you the best way to approach someone (the side of their
dominant hand at a 70 degree angle), where to stand (parallel to
them), and how to use words and your body language to make them feel
closer to you (mirroring their posture, then leading them out of it),
while they had no clue why they were drawn to you. Did you know that
if you speak at the same rhythm of somebody’s breathing you will
connect with them instantly? The more rapport you gain from someone
the more drawn, subconsciously, a person is to you. Without knowing
why, or how, people never fail to respond a certain way to specific
stimuli based on their personalities. After testing these things out I
found out one thing; it was weird.”
It was weird.I gobble up psychology books for breakfast.I reread
them,study and make extensive notes.It does not pay me, nor is it
directly related to my profesion.It is an obsession.Strangely, the
deeper I went inside psychology, the more I found it interconnected
with other fields anthropology,evolution,biochemistry , even art and
Chric Campbell further writes
“We live in a world of illusions. A trick of the mind we believe to be
real. Whether it is in our living rooms or in our brains in our living
rooms, it’s not as real as you thought it was. The main theme behind
This Book is nothing, and I mean nothing is as real as it seems. New
discoveries in science show us a crazy world operating behind the
scenes of the world we ‘see’ every single day. For instance, quantum
physics shows us parallel universes, objects being in as many places
as they want (even if you only see one of them), how even a brick wall
cannot be solid and how the mere act of looking at the world changes
it with every peep.
Biology shows universes inside of you, mathematics points out a design
of life, experiments prove our thoughts are living ‘things’ and
holograms show how we affect the entire world with a feeling. By the
way, if any of This Book bothers your common sense view of the world,
think of that phrase ‘common sense.’ Just because it is a common
sense, doesn’t make it right. This is why Einstein said “common sense
tells us that the Earth is flat.” This Book is about an unseen world
that we communicate with every second.Through our feelings, thoughts
and especially beliefs, we create the physical world around us.
His bibliography for this book is the books that I’d love to read
before I die, among others.
Another book to read is Rant by Chuck Palanhuick.The story spun me
around round’n round for a few days after reading it.
Reading gets me high.
Reading is like tripping with lucy in the sky with diamonds or being a
Yaqui Indian shaman soaring across the skies.
I’m sure you guys have had similar experiences.
