The Great Dreamer and His Net of Jewels

 

Net of Indra :

What is Space ?

Over the years Dude has educated me on all manner of subjects. Some time ago we began speaking about the nature of space and more recently conjoined space (which I promise I’ll discuss soon).

Once during our discussion about space, I asked Dude to explain the fundamental nature of space and rather than explain it in a scientific kind of way (which he critiqued as a limited human way of understanding), he explained space to me this way :

“Space is whatever it is allowed to be. Whatever the life force allows it to be. Whatever the energy of a place or the mind allows it to be. Watever it desires its self to be.”

Later he asked me :

“If as you believe when you die you create things with your mind, what is this mind that creates ? Does it occupy it’s own space or does it occupy another space – a larger space or a smaller space and where does that space reside ?”

Rachel had once told me that when she was a teenager, Dude suggested to her :

“Space is the interior absolute, except when it’s programmed to be the exterior.”

I asked her about ‘programmed’ and she said she quizzed Dude about that and he explained that space changes how it does things when it needs to. Not that it is programmed by anyone. Remember this was in about 1980 when IT language was basic and uncommon. So it has nothing to do with us living in a hologram or giant computer program.

If you think about it, what Dude said to the two of us is very similar. Bearing in mind that Dude talks in a way that is most relevant to the person he’s commuicating with.

Some of you might remember me paraphrasing Ramana Maharshi’s comments about the Self, with the comment :

“What is it that is asking ‘what am I ?’ ?”

Those of you who have explored this will understand that the I, is not what you think it is and is something far mor expansive and less definable than you might have previously believed. If you reach a well explored intellectual understanding of this statement or the point of experiencing the felt perspective of the answer, you’ll see that the answer leads back to what Dude has hinted at.

So rather than saying any more about what Dude meant, let me suggest you reflect on what his words might mean. The only thing I would add, is it would be best to abandon ALL preconceptions about the nature of space. Especially ideas like quantum cosmology, string theory, fundamental particles, M-Branes, holograms etc. I believe that we humans are barking up the wrong tree.  It would also pay to remember Dude’s Maxim Number 4 “Time does not exist. There is only space.”.
