Could it be that there are infinite levels of awareness?
    #1911562 - 09/13/03 02:59 AM (13 years, 2 months ago)

I only ask because a voice asked me the same thing 2 nights ago during one of the most amazing experiences of my life. At the time I completely understood what it meant, but now I've lost the meaning.

With howling woe,
After night I do croud
And with night will go;
I turn my back to the east,
From whence comforts have increas'd;
For light doth seize my brain
With frantic pain.

I suppose it would be too much to ask you to go into some detail on each of those perspectives?

It just could be.... I am not of a high enough level of awareness right now to really know, however.
Peace.

yes; it could be that there are infinite "levels of awareness."

It could be that everything's infinite

Infinity is Unitary in the metaphysical sense (vs. the mathematical sense). Infinity is The One. Multiplicity belongs to 'Emanations' (Plotinus) or Creation (Biblical theology). The One is indivisible, although in Eastern Orthodox Christianity, the 'Uncreated Energies' manifest in multiplicity, and the Presence of The One may be reflected as an 'image and likeness' in many ways, each depending upon the capacity of the created being for such reflection. So Thomas Aquinas believed that Man's soul [psyche] encompassed the souls of all lesser creatures, and surpassed them - each soul being capable of manifesting a 'bit' of the Divine Unity, or 'Spirit' [archaic term for Consciousness or Awareness].

I agree. When I experienced a level 5 trip, it seemed as if the entire universe and its workings were shown to me, but now I believe there is infinitely more to it than what I experienced.

I am starting to further understand the fractal nature of things
