The Nature of Nothing
The nature of nothing: If you take away everything that is physical (matter/energy), you are left with nothing (no thing). Nothing is completely empty space, absolute cold, silence and darkness. Nothing is infinite, eternal and indestructible. It does not move; it does not have to. It is already everywhere. The universe is more than 99.999% empty space, including our own bodies.
All physical things are made of atoms which are mostly empty space. If the nucleus was the size of a marble, the electrons would be specks of dust a half mile away. Every physical thing has that much empty space in it.
If you removed all the empty space from human bodies leaving only electrons and the other subatomic particles, all seven billion human bodies would fit in the space of a sugar cube.
True perspective: The way our solar system is shown in books does not give you a true perspective of it. It shows the sun and the other planets orbiting it in rings that are not to scale. They could not get it in a book if it was to scale. The actual scale is more like this; if the sun was the size of a basketball, the earth would be about the size of a BB, and it would be 93 feet away from it. Pluto, the outer most planet in our system, would be a grain of sand over a half mile away. The next star outside our solar system would be thousands of miles away.
It takes light that travels about one-hundred and eighty-six thousand miles a second about 8 and a half minutes to go from the sun to our planet. It will go around the earth seven times in one second, but it takes four years to get to the next star outside our solar system, and 2.5 million years to get to the next galaxy.
This gives you a more true idea of how much empty space there is in our universe. Most of everything is nothing.
What is faster, the speed of light or the speed of dark? Turn off the light and try to get into bed before it gets dark. I am just kidding, but I am trying to make a point. You cannot turn off “nothing” or do anything to it. It always stays the same, is always everywhere all the time.
Nothing is really something.
Einstein's general relativity equations show that space bends and prove that nothing is really something with substance. Supposedly, empty space is shaped, and it is the shape of space that creates the gravity that controls and creates the whole universe. It holds the planets in orbit, makes the sun and other stars burn, and it is empty space, nothing.
Value of general relativity: I always wondered what the practical benefit of general relativity was, and now I know. It proves that nothing is something, and in fact controls and creates the whole universe.
Nothing causes everything to happen. It creates gravity, gravity creates planets and stars, stars concentrate and release all energy and matter. Thus everything physical comes from and is created by nothing. 0 = 2
Our spirit is also like nothing. It is the so-called empty space between everything. The majority of everything is nothing, and it connects everything, everywhere.
Our essential, immortal self or soul is like the blank sheet that physical life is written on, the darkness that gives light a place to shine, the silence that gives sound a place to be heard, an infinite stadium that the game of life is played in. Nothing is more than something. It is the complete opposite of what people think. It is impossible to get your mind around; all you can do is know it is true and be it.
There are some things that are beyond the mind, literally. You can only know them or in this case be them, when the mind is open.
You cannot experience nothing: You do not look inside yourself to find yourself as some eastern religions have been saying; there is nothing there. You cannot see or experience nothing; it is impossible. You can be like nothing, but not experience it. There is nothing to experience.
What does the experiencing cannot be experienced.
Spiritual perspective: You do not look in; you do the opposite, and you look out through your senses. When you experience everything, you are nothing at the same time. You have to be nothing to experience everything. If you are something, there is no room for everything. It is the spiritual perspective. You are looking out from nothing to everything, from nowhere to everywhere, from stillness to movement, from darkness to light.
It is interesting that the word “nowhere” is also “now here.”
The watcher/witness: The perspective of a spiritual being is as if you are sitting in a dark movie theater watching life. If the theater was not dark, you could not see the movie. Your soul or spirit is in a dark, silent void that is open to life. You are the void and everything in it, nothing and everything at the same time.
People, mankind are living as their false, mortal mind-self, and they should be living as their immortal spiritual self, the exact opposite of the way they are now. If you are completely open, life fills the void completely. All life comes to you; it is given to you by life. You are just a receiver.
You do not create life; all you can do is live it and reflect what you receive. Life moves around and through you. When you are completely open, nothing is completely displaced with everything.
Unified field equation: The holy grail of physics, the science that is trying to explain everything mathematically is something called a unified field equation. It would explain in a mathematical equation why everything does what it does. They have not been able to do it, but they have not been considering the field or tried to add it to the equation. The field is what we call nothing.
I would give it a new mathematical symbol. A good symbol and model for life in the universe would be an empty circle. The circle represents energy/positive, the space inside the circle represents nothing/negative.
When the solution is simple, God is answering. Albert Einstein
2 = 0 says it all: Two being the balancing opposites, one positive one negative; they cancel each other out, equal nothing and everything, represented by the new symbol. That is the unified field equation. It also goes the other way, 0 = 2.
Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not one bit simpler. Albert Einstein
You can only understand the universe if you look at it from the perspective of life. It will never really be understood from the mind’s perspective, because it cannot perceive “nothing” for what it really is or understand anything infinite, which is the true nature of everything.
The spirit is more like darkness than light.
People think that the spirit is like light. This is because light reveals what was hidden in the dark; it represents life, and dark represents death. The good guys wear white, and evil likes the dark. Darkness represents evil, and light represents good. It is a misunderstanding, a deception. The opposite is true; light is more like evil and dark is more like God or good. This is because the spirit is like darkness. Darkness is nothing, and so is the spirit. Light is something, a form of energy; the spirit has no energy.
I am not saying that light is evil; I am just saying as a metaphor for God, it is missing the mark. The spirit has more in common with darkness or nothing. The mind, like light, is a form of energy, and the mind creates the evil in our lives, so light should not be associated with spirit, except in the context of enlightenment.
Displace the spirit: The mind is a form of energy, and because it is, it will always displace the spirit, just as light will always displace darkness.
Mind power: This is why you cannot live completely without the mind when there are any other active minds trying to communicate with you. The mind can always intrude on the spirit, but the spirit can never intrude on the mind. The spirit is a void, and the mind will always try to fill it.
You could say the mind is more powerful than the spirit, and you would be right, except that the spirit does not need power to do something. It is already everywhere and the biggest part of everything. So the spirit could be seen as the ultimate power; it is simply what is. It is automatically wherever energy is not. The spirit is the only thing in the universe that requires no energy to exist. The mind is aggressive; the spirit is passive. This is why you have to be by yourself or be around other people that know the truth to really be fulfilled. You will be much more aware than people that do not know the truth, but you will not be able to be completely open, completely fulfilled around active minds.
It is a drag, but the way it is and will be until everyone knows the truth. This is why you have to learn to experience true life alone at first. You just have to start getting away from the mind, as much as you can, whenever you can. Eventually, you receive the input of other minds as you take in all other energy, and it is not so bad, but it is not as good as the energy you get directly from life.
The significant problems we have cannot be solved at the same level of thinking with which we created them. Albert Einstein
The new mind: A new and improved mind will be with you forever. It will start over with every death and birth, but it will grow in the collective unconscious forever. The big difference is, it will be your servant, not your master. Your mind will become your trusted friend. It is a valued and necessary part of a divine life form.
Everything is Mind A man looks at an open field and thinks, "I could build a house there," and soon there is a house there. What starts as nothing, just a thought, becomes manifest as something. The mind of God just does it with everything that exists.
The double slit experiment proves that the mind affects energy and matter. When the laser beam is observed, it changes from a wave to a particle, so the observer's mind is affecting energy and is connected invisibly to the particles.
The difference between the way the animal mind (which includes the mind of mankind) and the spiritual mind manifests is the spiritual mind does it on the subatomic level, the level where matter and energy is created. The mind of mankind manifests on the level above the atomic level, the world we are conscious of, except in the rare times like the double slit experiment when we become aware of quantum behavior or phenomena below the atomic level.
The spiritual mind could be called the mind of what religions call God. Everything comes from nothing. It comes from a thought. Man-made things come from the mind of man. Lower animals come from the low animal mind. Everything else in the universe comes from the mind of God (that which is). The mind exists, but not in the conventional way that mass and energy exist. It exists like shaped space exists. It exists, but does not exist. It is like "nothing is something." It is at the edge of understanding, like infinity.
Mind of God = The collective will of all fully evolved life in the universe Not all thoughts, but certain kinds of thoughts create movement and make nothing into something.
I want to know God's thoughts, the rest are details. Albert Einstein E=MC^2 is an example of God's thought. Atoms, the building blocks of all matter, are really just movement, energy moving so fast in a circle that it appears and functions as something solid. That is how movement becomes physical. If the movement inside an atom stopped, it would turn into nothing. If the atom is split, it releases the energy out in a straight line and manifests as a nuclear explosion. E=MC^2 tells you how much force or energy is released from a given amount of mass or solid matter when the atoms split.
Everything is movement; thought creates everything in the physical universe. That does not mean any fantasy you have will come true, only that which is in accord with the mind of man or the spiritual mind. What manifests from the mind of man is temporary; the things of the spiritual mind can last forever. It is time for the spiritual mind to start manifesting on earth. The thoughts of man can and do become manifest in physical reality. They are currently manifesting as everything the human race has built, and what the human race does, such as corporations, religions, science, etc. The man- made world reflects how man thinks. Most of it is not the same as what God thinks. Mankind, or the mind of human beings is in the process of evolving away from the animal mind and into the mind of God. Every man knows what he is and what he does. A man is but the product of his thoughts. What he thinks, he becomes. Mohandas Gandhi
Now that the truth of life can be seen, that evolution will begin to accelerate. We are beginning to be able to see the difference between a creation of the animal mind and a creation of the mind of God. We are also starting to see that we need the mind of God to create a heaven on earth.
Divine program: This book is just spiritual thoughts, a divine program that is now being downloaded into your mind. It will change you and the rest of mankind into spiritual beings, and create a heaven on earth.
It is important to simplify the way you see and know life, because it is the only way it can be known. It can be almost infinitely complicated, and trying to understand it all is what mankind is trying to do. We have to go the other way and see and know it in the most simple way, because it is the only way we can know all that can be known. We can never know all the details; they are infinite and it is impossible, but we can know the simple big picture of life. That is what this book attempts to do.
Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not one bit simpler. Albert Einstein
In this book I say do not think, clear your mind, because what is left is the mind of God, the mind of creation itself. If you allow the mind of God to become your mind, heaven will manifest in your life after you die or when enough people in the animal world we are in now see the truth.
GOD = THAT WHICH IS = LIFE = THE PRESENT
