1. THE LAW OF ONE
Our common understanding of “One Unity consists of Many” is obviously not how The Law of One-ness is meant to be understood. It should mean that there is only One Absolute reality, infinite, boundless without beginning or end. The term “ONE” leads already to a misinterpretation, since ‘one’ has the connotation as opposite to ‘many’.It is often symbolised by a circle, to express ‘boundless without beginning or end’, yet the symbol is not adequate either. We do not have the appropriate expression nor an adequate symbol, because we do not have the right mental conception in the first place.
It is hard for us to understand or even imagine what ‘Absolute Oneness’ means, since we live in ‘the world of many things’. The Hindus call our world “Maya”, which means “Illusion”. Yet, this illusion is for us “Real”, and becomes the basis of all our conceptual understanding.
Through the Copernican Revolution we have learned how erroneous our perception can be. The current scientific revolution has brought us still much more to realise this. It has proved that our day-to-day world, the world of things we can touch, see and smell (macroscopic objects), which is no more than the Newtonian world, is valid or real only within a certain boundary – the Newtonian boundary.
Beyond the Newtonian boundary, Relativity Theory and Quantum Physics apply. Both of them are still dealing with physical laws within the physical reality. The boundary of Newtonian Physics is not the boundary of physical reality, as some may have misunderstood it. Quantum Physics, as weird as it may seem, has never dealt with mysticism or spiritualism. Only very recently some avant garde physicists have tried to understand the realm of human mind and consciousness.
In the summer of 1982, Alain Aspect and his co-workers, successfully conducted an historical experiment at the University of Paris. The result of his experiment gives the verdict on a half century long debate between Einstein and Neils Bohr, known as the EPR Paradox (Einstein, Podolsky and Rosen), and at the same time also gave the experimental evidence for the ‘non-locality’ and ‘counterfactuality’ principle of Quantum Physics.
In simple language, the Alain Aspect experiment has proved that two complementary particles that split and travelled at the speed of light in opposite directions, no matter how far they are apart, are always ‘in communication’ with each other. If we measure or change the direction of flight of one particle (say particle A), the other particle (say particle B) which might be light years away, will know it and will change its flight direction to complement its partner (particle A).
Relativity theory postulates that nothing – not even information, can travel faster than the speed of light. So it shall not be possible for particle A to communicate with particle B (EPR Paradox). The Alain Aspect experiment has proved that the two particles are ‘communicating’ to each other. Was Einstein wrong?

The Alain Aspect experiment at the University of Paris can be considered crucial; as crucial as the Michelson and Morley experiment in 1887. The Michelson and Morley experiment gave the ‘death knell’ to the ‘etheric hypothesis’, which led to the birth of our Modern Physics.
This time, the Alain Aspect experiment brought up another controversy amongst our physicists. As far as the author is aware, there is still no consensus amongst physicists, on how to understand the philosophical implications of the ‘non-locality principle’ proven by this experiment.
Paul Davies summarised the result of that experiment as follows:
The Universe is not a collection of objects, but is an inseparable web of vibrating patterns in which no one component has reality independently from the entirety. Included in the entirety is the observer.
(Bell’s theorem of the ‘indivisibility’ of the Universe)
As opposed to the above interpretation, some others believe in the ‘superluminal’ (faster than light) connection as the explanation. However, this is contrary to the Relativity Theory, which postulates that ‘nothing’, not even information, can travel faster than the speed of light.The Tachyon Theory tried to prove the existence of particles, which move faster than the speed of light. Though there is some mathematical background to prove it, the theory has not gained total acceptance.
Our problem lies, most probably, in our mental conditioning, in the form of mind conceptions derived from our physical sense data – our perceptions, which is ‘atomistic’ in nature.
To get out from this “mental trap” we have to turn our frame of reference around. Instead of looking up into the Cosmos from our ‘atomistic’ view, which is time-space confined, we should look into our time-space continuum from beyond, from the condition at the speed of light.
Let us consider the Einstein’s Gamma factor formula. The Gamma factor formula is one of the reason behind the famous story known as the “Twin Paradox”. If one of the twins travels into space with enormous speed, the Gamma factor will keep her young. If she managed to travel at 90% of the speed of light, (Gamma = 2.3), her ‘clock’ will tick 2.3 times slower as observed by her twin sister on Earth. As movement is relative to the frame of reference, the one sister on the space ship will also observe that the ‘clock’ of her twin sister on Earth is slowing down 2.3 times. That’s why it is called a paradox.
To see how it’s solved and to know more about Relativity Theory, please click here to visit “Relativity and FTL (Faster Than Light) Travel”, a very comprehensive document elaborating the Relativity Theory created for the rec.arts.startrek.tech newsgroup by Jason W. Hinson at http://www.physics.purdue.edu.
For the purpose of this paper let’s take our Milky Way Galaxy as our frame of reference. Our Galaxy is relatively stationary to our travelling twin sister and can be used as the base of our observation.
If she managed to reach 99.99% of the speed of light, her Gamma factor will be 70.7. Her clock will tick 70.7 times slower than the Earth clock in our Galaxy. Using the inter-galactic map she brought from the Earth, she will reach the edge of our Galaxy (100 light years away from here) in less than 1.5 year. She will ‘feel’ that she travels at a very high speed, which seems to be 70 times faster than the speed of light.
As a matter of fact, she never reaches the speed of light at all. Her speed is still 99.99% of the speed of light, but her inter-galactic map is no longer valid for her condition. At 99.99% of the speed of light, our Galaxy (also the whole Universe) becomes 70.7 times smaller.
What would happen if she could reach 100% of the speed of light? Theoretically, at the speed of light her clock will stop. Time ‘streches’ indifinitely’ and distance shrinks into nothing. She will reach the edge of our Galaxy in no time or instantenously.
If we take the whole Universe as our base of measurement (frame of reference), which is relative stationary to her moving at the speed of light, then she can also travel from one edge of the Universe to the other in no time.
The story is confusing and sounds unbelievable. Some believe that there must be a ‘loophole’ in the theory. In fact, the ‘loophole’ is not in the theory, but in our mental conception.
Our problem actually lies in the conflicting and inconsistent definition as well as our undertsanding, of what we term as “speed”.The Relativity Theory shows that time and space are relative to our frame of reference. They are so relative, that if we use ‘the movement at the speed of light’ as our frame of reference, time and space become insignificant.
Consequently, speed as a dimension of space over time also becomes irrelevant. At the speed of light, there is no speed any more, it is just a condition. The reality at the speed of light = the reality of light.
Light particles from the background radiation, which has been detected by our COBE (Cosmic Background Explorer) Satellite, is perceived by us as if it has travelled across the Universe in 15 billion years. Yet, for the light particle itself – which travels at the speed of light and therefore the condition at the speed of light applies, it has not moved at all. It has travelled zero distance at zero time. It only appears to us, as if it travels. For a light particle, time-space simply doesn’t exist.Here lies the boundary of Physics and our physical reality, our time-space continuum. We always use our condition on this Earth – our reality, as our frame of reference, and think that it is the only one there is.
We always take it for granted and never really asked ourselves, whether our four dimensional time-space continuum – our reality, is truly real. History told us that, for thousands of years, we never asked ourselves whether the sky really revolves around our globe. We simply took it for granted, until The Copernican Revolution convinced us otherwise.
If we take ‘the condition at the speed of light’ or ‘the reality of light’ as our frame of reference looking down into our time-space continuum, we would not speak of “speed” anymore, but “degree of confinement” instead.
Light can be considered as “free energy”, while “mass” or “matter” is “confined energy”, known as “condensed energy”
Photons do not travel at all, and they do not age either. It only ‘appears’ to us as if they do.
Two complementary light particles, which appear to us as if they have split and travelled across the Universe in opposite directions, in fact are still together – indivisible. They do not need ‘superluminal’ connection to communicate to each others.
(Another way to view The Indivisibility of Quantum Reality)
At the ‘top end’ of Quantum Physics and Relativity Theory we realised that:
In the Universe of inseparable vibrating pattern, the true and eternal reality is the reality ‘at the speed of light’ or ‘the reality of light’. Our physical reality in this time-space continuum is only temporary – an apparent reality.
THE ABSOLUTE IS BEYOND ‘THE REALITY OF LIGHT’, WHERE TIME STOPS, THEREFORE PATTERNS CEASE TO BE CYCLIC, PERIODIC OR TIME DEPENDENT, AND SPACE SHRINKS; HENCE SEPARATENESS CEASES TO EXIST.
TIME-SPACE AND THE WHOLE COSMOS BECOME SINGULARITY, THE ABSOLUTE INFINITE ONE-NESS, THE UNIVERSAL SOURCE.
In the Universe of inseparable vibrating pattern, where no one component has reality independently from the entirety, our ‘illusion’ of perceiving the ‘objective’ Universe as being real and separated from us, emerges due to the second axioms of nature, – The Law of Polarisation.To experience Itself, the Absolute Infinite One-ness (read: GOD/SOURCE) polarised Itself, so that inter-relations and inter-action can occur between the polarities, the Subject and the Object.
The Law of Polarisation is The Law of Universal Freewill.
The first polarisation is considered as an act of God exercising God’s Freewill to polarised God-Self.
Simply imagine yourselves experiencing your own physical body. It is your free will to polarise yourselves into two polarities, a point within you – the Subject you (maybe you will call it your consciousness), who experiences your own physical body – the Object you. Both Subject and Object are no-one else but you.Yet, whatever impression the Subject experiences from the inter-relations with the Object, it can not be considered independently from the patterns of the Subject itself.
A subject pattern as simple as a particle experiences its surroundings in a completely different way from a more complex subject pattern such as a tree or an animal. A subject pattern as complex as a human being experiences the Universe as in time-space continuum, while to a subject pattern as simple as a photon or light particle, time and space simply do not exist.
Human beings perceive the impression that a light particle from the background radiation has travelled across the Universe in 15 billion years to reach us, yet for the light particle itself, it is instantenous.
A “Solar Logos”, who has a much more complex pattern than a human being, experiences the Universe in a totally different way than us. The complexity of a Solar Logos, and what degree of consciousness it may have, is simply beyond human imagination. It is for us so unimaginable as human being is unimaginable to a photon. What we can relate to a Solar Logos, as we can see the Sun and all the Planets, may be comparable to what a photon can relate to some particles of our physical body.
The Universe is to us as what it is, because we are as what we are.
Time-Space and the whole Universe as we perceive it, has no objective reality independently from us. It is our illusion (Maya).
At the condition ‘at the speed of light’ there is no such thing as “matter”, but an inseparable web of vibrating energy patterns. The basic principles governing the inter-relationships between patterns are the principles of Resonance and Inductions as we have learned it from the theory as well as from the practice of Electrodynamics, especially in the last few decades.
The principle of resonance postulates that interactions between patterns can only occur if they correspond to each other within a certain resonance bandwidth.
While resonating, the induction principle underlies the interactions between the resonating patterns, involving energy transfer due to potential difference or polarity, changing and modifying the patterns. This induction principle in turn is the fundamental cause of universal evolution.
Everything we have learned and created so far, are effects of the induction principle, the result from the inter-relations and interactions between our patterns and other patterns in our surrounding, to which we can resonate.
It does not mean that we are able to resonate to all patterns in the whole cosmos. It is possible, and even highly probable, that there are other physical patterns beyond our resonance bandwidth, which we can not resonate or relate to, and therefore, do not notice their existence. Many physical universes could share our “space” without our being aware of them.
The principle of resonance and induction goes beyond physical and materialistic patterns. It also applies to the non-materialistic / non-physical patterns, as in emotional and thought patterns expressed in behaviour patterns, and beyond.
We have been using our common physical pattern in our physical senses, aided by all kinds of instruments we have developed, to extend our resonance bandwidth and accumulated tremendous amount of “objective” information in our scientific endeavour. Yet, our knowledge derived from all this information depends solely on how we perceive it – how our thought pattern relates or resonates to and induced by them.
|Walter Russell :||“Effect” is complex – infinitely complex – but one can have no “knowledge” of effects. One can but be “informed” of effect. Information is not knowledge. Our educational process “informs” us but until we have recognised the eternal truth which underlies that information, we have no knowledge of it. . . “All knowledge” is possible for anyone – and the Cosmos gives it to him who asks but “all information” is impossible.|
To get to the Source, rather than just the effects, the only thing we have to change is our own patterns.
