What do we really know about our material Life? We see stuff, hear stuff, feel stuff, smell stuff and we can taste stuff. We develop our belief in reality based on experience through these 5 physical senses. Those are physical senses. We also have the sense of memory and many of us are blessed with the ability of future awareness. In the old days there were those called prophets.
But Dogs can hear things we can’t hear so how reliable are your ears?
Digital cameras and binoculars that detect infra-red heat can see things we cannot see. Objects do exist outside of the visual spectrum. So how reliable are your eyes?
If you hold your nose, your taste buds will not receive the stimulation that comes from a piece of bacon. What good are your taste buds?
Ever try smelling something with a cold? Dogs can smell scents we cannot.
I touched a very cold Ice cube. It was sticky. I came back an hour later and the same cube had turned to warm water. My hand felt wet and warm. A cute furry animal climbed up on my leg I reached down to pet it as it felt like a kitten. It bit me as it was a squirrel. Even if I touched it and saw it, my senses were wrong.
The use of our 5 senses are tools of Science. As you can see, our senses can deceive us. Science is guilty of practicing the paradigm that “If we cannot prove the existence of something using our 5 senses; it does not exist”. Translated: “If science cannot prove it, it only conveys our ignorance”. Yet linear equations cannot explain the concept of infinity. Science has a symbol for it but not an explanation. We are in a sense; running a race with no track or finish line.
“Life is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.” ~Macbeth act 5.5
Stay with me.
The entire concept of infinity makes what our conscious minds call matter or reality seem like pure fiction. Until you can explain the concept of infinity we’re no more real than characters in a dream or a movie that possess free will. Matter becomes as legitimate as time. Time is a tool invented by man to measure progress. This world, this galaxy this universe is all relative. It appears spacious and to describe infinity; endless. We’ve created rules or “Mores” to try to make sense of our existence. We feel the need to bring meaning to our lives. Does everything have meaning or a purpose? Yet in the scope of the universe we are less than an Atom (not Adam)However; to an insect, we are giants, maybe even gods their eyes cannot see either. We certainly have the power of life or death over the entity.
There have been two profound moments in the history/memory of this plane of existence. The first being the 10 commandments given to Moses by the Architect of our existence. The 2nd being the physical manifestation of the Architect saying the two most important commandments were to love your neighbor as you would yourself and to love the Architect, Creator and Master (who is omnipotent, omnipresent and omniscient) with your heart, mind and soul. Our God!
How can I love something I can’t begin to imagine with my heart, mind and soul? What is this “soul” you speak of? What is the verb “to love”? The key is to use your imagination supported by trust. If we are living in a truly grand illusion that exists in a location surrounded by an abstract concept called infinity then perhaps reaching out with our inner feelings and making an appeal with our outward actions we are using a mystical noun called “faith”.
“Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.” ~Hebrews 11:1.
Maybe, just maybe, we are living in a spiritual world that is cloaked by a material camouflage. Yet we’re earthbound until we are called out of this existence?
Until next time
