I was blessed to collaborate with some fine writers…
The Tao that can be told is not the eternal Tao.
The name that can be named is not the eternal Name.
The un-namable is the eternally real.
Naming is the origin of all particular things.
Free from desire, you realize the mystery.
Caught in desire, you see only the manifestations.
Yet mystery and manifestations arise from the same source.
This source has been called darkness. The Darkness within darkness, un-seeable without first having light, and the light only shining from within the darkness. The gateway leading to all understanding.
In that we a part of it we therefore cannot know the whole of it, at least until our return.
The information and principles of organization imagined in ideal form in the Metaverse are more perfect and complete than we can ever articulate, therefore beyond our means of description. In our driving need to know the un-knowable we create focuses for our belief through adherence to definitions created by man.
Pure conscious awareness without time and space exists outside our universe.
Abstract thought on the part of pure consciousness defined creation prior to the Big Bang. In our universe, we are only able to recognize objects and concepts we have named.
When we set down our meme bundles we are freed from personal preference. In that clear state we may perceive the workings of the universal model and our role in it. Remaining attached to our memes obscures the inflowing Metaversal patterns and keeps us tethered to our familiar material and relational patterns.
Pure, undifferentiated consciousness dwells in the unformed darkness of the Metaverse(The Metaverse is a collective virtual shared space, created by the convergence of virtually enhanced physical reality and physically persistent virtual space.) The thought patterns that produce light and matter arise out of the Metaverse, but the manifestations of these patterns takes place within our universe. The portal into our universe is the gateway to all understanding.
Just as what we perceive as a ‘Black Hole’ funnelling the matter of everything it can trap within its gravity well, a well that spans areas greater that our own small galaxy, funnelling from this plain to another, thereby creating ‘existence’ with that matter within the other plain. The premise of the first verse is to say there is that there is one plain that creates all the other plains, that bonds all the others together, creating the new even it accepts the return of the old. All of this implies that existence comes from non-existence, or as we refer to it ‘source, Allah, God, etc.’
Begin by considering how ὑπάρχειν (hyparkein) comes to be used as a synonym for εἶναι (einai) in its “existential” use, and then to follow the history of existence as the Latin rendering of ὑπάρχειν in this sense. Either topic could supply a separate monograph.
First consider how ὑπάρχειν (hyparkein) comes to be used as a synonym for εἶναι (einai) in its “existential” use, and then to follow the history of existence as the Latin rendering of ὑπάρχειν in this sense. Either topic could also supply a separate monograph. ὑπάρχειν originally means “to make a beginning”, “to take the initiative”, “to take the first step (in doing so-and-so)”, e.g. to begin a guest-friendship (in the earliest occurrence of the verb, Odyssey 24.286) or to initiate hostilities (…)
Apart from this technical use in logic and grammar, the most common meaning of ὑπάρχειν in later Greek seems to be that which we render as ‘to exist’ or “‘to be real’. (This occasionally leads to rather ludicrous confusion, when a late commentator can no longer distinguish between Aristotle’s technical sense and his own ordinary use of ὑπάρχειν.
The contemporary attempts to determine in a purely logical way the nature of existence, by constructing a logic of existence(1) or a free logic which makes “no assumptions about the existence of the purported designata of its terms, general or singular, seems to be still premature as long as the problem of existence in its philosophical implications is not adequately resolved. Historically, there are three main problems in logic involving a conception of existence, which clearly show that the logical problem of existence has a philosophical background influencing the “logic of existence” in its technical sense.
All of this brings us right back to our search for reason, and the concept of the Metaverse wherein one great plain bonds, creates, and recovers all others in a never ending eternal cycle of ‘being.’ Returning us to ”
This brings us back to “In that we a part of it we cannot know the whole of it, at least until our return.”
For the sky sings out,
Gateway to the wondrous,
I bow humbly liken to trees in wind…
