4. Formation of the new integrative Concept
4.1. Concepts, theories and map of reality
“Physical concepts are free creations of the human mind, and are not, however it may seems, uniquely determined by the external world. In our endeavour to understand reality we are somewhat like a man trying to understand the mechanism of a closed watch. He sees the face and the moving hands, even hears its ticking, but he has no way of opening the case. If he is ingenious he may form a picture of a mechanism which could be responsible for all the things he observes, but he may never be quite sure his picture is the only one which could explain his observations. He will never be able to compare his picture with the real mechanism and he can not even imagine the possibility of the meaning of such a comparison.”
The way human mind works is through conceptualization. Since the moment we are born, we are collecting information from our experience, and our mind automatically arranges those information to build a picture about ourselves and our surrounding. Through this process, we are forming a concept of our reality in our mind. It is a kind of a ‘map’, which differs from the real territory, though it is a powerful tool for our mind to understand the world.
As an infant, our ‘map’ is like a blank page, ready to accept any information. But once we grow older and our map becomes more established, we start to use it as a ‘yard stick’ to sort out information that we receive. We can easily accept information that fit into our map but tend to filter out the rest or at least to put them aside.
Every now and then, our mind re-arranges our map and all those unmatched information that we put on the side suddenly fit into the new map. When this happens, we are experiencing what is known as the “A HA! experience” or Eureka!.
4.2. Re-arranging our “map of reality”
To form the new integrative concept, we need to re-arrange our map of reality in such a way, that everything will fit nicely together, forming a coherent unity. It’s like putting puzzle pieces together.
The first puzzle piece we have is the collection of ancient teachings or the Ancient Beliefs (red). Then we have our Mythologies, Philosophies and Religions as the second piece (blue). Both are based on believes in the transcendence, and these two could easily fit together.
From around the 16th century, – the Copernican Revolution, we are forming another puzzle piece (white), – the Newtonian Physics, that does not match the first two because this one is based on strict rationality, provability and objectivity.
From hereon, our map are spilt into two. On the one hand we have branches of knowledge dealing with the transcendence, the invisible and the non-physicals, as Metaphysics, Religions and its respective Theologies, Psychology (Geistes Wissenshaften) etc., and on the other hand we have the Natural Science that deals with the objective physical world.
This split also created the dichotomy in our worldview where we also split the world into two, consciousness in one hand and matter in the other. Those from the first group believe that consciousness is primary, while those from the latter believe that consciousness only emerges from matter.
At the turn of the 20th century we are getting two new puzzle pieces, – the Relativity Theory and Quantum Mechanics (yellow & green). These two new pieces match easily with the last piece, extending the Newtonian world, – the world of things we can see, touch, and smell, with the world of super small (Quantum) on one side, and the world of super fast (Special Relativity) as well as the world of super vast (General Relativity) on the other side.
In the 1970’s, while in search for the new ‘map of reality’ to accommodate the new discoveries and theories in physics, some physicists started to see some parallels between the new worldview in modern physics and the Ancient Eastern Mysticism and Philosophy.
Though there are some parallels, the dichotomy still exist and the two could not be integrated coherently into one unity. A final re-arrangement is necessary to form a new map of reality, a totally integrated and coherently unified theory, philosophy and worldview.
The Integrative Concept
3.3. The most advanced from Physics
– The Unification of Relativity, Quantum and Superstring.
“The Universe is not a collection of objects, but is an inseparable web of vibrating energy patterns in which no one component has reality independently from the entirety. Included in the entirety is the observer.”
Bell’s theorem on the indivisibility of the Universe.
To arrive at a total unification, the first area to work on, is the unification of Relativity Theory and Quantum Mechanics. Reviews have been done on some subject areas as the EPR Paradox, the Alain Aspect Experiment and the Bell’s theorem, as well as Special Relativity in regards to the condition at the speed of light considering the role of the Gamma factor.
(for more detailed discussion please refer to “The Ultimate Unification Theory“.)
In our current ‘map of reality’ we always measure speed as relative to a certain ‘quasi stationary’ point in space as our frame of reference. As a matter of fact, there is no such point in space that we can consider as absolutely stationary. On the other hand, the speed of light is always constant, no matter how we measure it.
Inspired by the simple but brilliant idea of Copernicus in the 16th century to replace the geocentric system with heliocentric system, we can also turn our frame of reference around by using the condition at the speed of light instead of a quasi stationary or an arbitrary point in space.
Using the condition at the speed of light as our frame of reference leads to the break through that unifies Relativity Theory and Quantum Mechanics. At the speed of light, where Gamma factor equals infinite, and therefore time stops while space shrinks into nothing, light particles that appear to us as if they are travelling at the speed of light in different directions are in fact still together, indivisible.
At the condition “at the speed of light”, our 4-dimensional time-space
“curled up” into a tiny point the size 10-33cm. (Plank constant)
Referring to the10-dimensional Superstring Theory, the 11-dimensional Matrix Theory or the so called 12-dimensional F-theory, our 4-dimensional space-time is only one of the many probabilities, where the other 8 dimensions are “curled up” into Plank size.
At present, we still don’t know how many dimensions are there. Are there 10, 11, 12, or even infinite. But for sure, one possibility with the highest probablity, is the condition where all dimensions are curled up into one single point.
At a glance, this is hardly imaginable to us because we live in our four-dimensional time-space continuum, and can observe the vastness of our physical universe, which is more than 15 billion light years across. It is simply against our “map of reality”, – our conditioning.
In the pre-Copernican era, the fact that our Earth revolves around the Sun was also hardly imaginable. It was against anyone’s “map of reality”, because everyone can observe that the Sun, the Moon and the whole sky with all the stars rises in the East and sets in the West, as if they all revolves around the Earth.
Nowadays, the Sun, the Moon and all the stars still rises in the East and sets in the West. Nothing has changed since Copernicus, but our “map of reality”.
“A full glass, though open can not receive fresh water.
It has to be emptied first.”
4.4. The most ancient from Esoteric sources
– Re-visitation of The Secret Doctrine.
“The movement for the spreading of the Secret Doctrine is eighteen million years old. Only four of the original instigators still remain with us. The work lies now in the hands of three groups of lives, if it may be so expressed:
in the hands of those of our Earth Humanity who have equipped themselves so as to serve.
in the hands of certain Existence who have come into our earth scheme of evolution from other planetary schemes.
in the hands of a large number of devas of super human evolution.
The Tibetan (1934).
“An archaic manuscript – a collection of palm leaves made impermeable to water, fire and air, by some specific unknown process – is before the writer’s eye.
- On the first page is an immaculate white disc within a dull background.
- On the following page, the same disc, but with a central point. . . . .
- In it’s third stage the point is transformed into diameter . . . . .
- When the diameter line is crossed by a vertical one, it becomes the mundane cross. . . .”
The Secret Doctrine – H.P. Blavatsky.
The above mentioned palm leaves supposed to be the most ancient manuscript on this planet, and it is believed to be even older than humankind itself. It contains ‘highly magnetized’ symbols and the interpretation of them is left to our own ability to resonate.
Many ‘interpretations’ have been undertaken through out the ages from ancient Egypt, ancient Mayan and Inca culture (the American Indian Medicine Wheel), ancient India and China (The Book of Dzyan), even the Christian Bible (Genesis, Immaculate conception & the Cross), to the most recent, which was done by H.P. Blavatsky in 1888. (The Urantia book might also be one of the more recent interpretation from a different source.)
However, each interpretation differs from each other depends on how our ‘map of reality’ could resonate and assimilates the information (our resonance ability). It depends firstly to the resonance ability of the one who interprets, and secondly to the resonance ability of the masses in that particular point of time, because the interpreter has to describe it in such a way that the masses could at least relate to the story and assimilate the information in their ‘map of reality’.
Getting over all those different interpretations we will find the core essence of this most ancient teaching, which is the absolute unity of everything as symbolizes by the circle. This absolute unity of everything which is at the same time equals to nothing or void, is confirmed by many Mystics throughout the ages, who has reached the ultimate Mystical experience, to be ONE with the whole Cosmos, known as “AT-ONE-MENT”
The unification of Relativity, Quantum, Superstring theories
and the most ancient esoteric teaching ultimately leads to
The Point of Singularity, The Absolute Oneness,
The Alpha and The Omega.
The Ultimate Unification
The Law of ONE.
