Another night out, another day gone while a new one waiting for me to lay foot on…….it seems I am stuck in a never ending cycle of days and nights, its relentless. The only difference between me and Bill Murray in Groundhog day(awesome movie..must watch) is that, for him the day in the calendar would never change & in my case it changes every day for the same. ..SAD but true. Can I ever escape this eternal cycle..?? Can I ever hope to see the bigger picture…?? Can I ever see “Myself”…?? Some might think that such questions make no sense to even a demented and crack brained. Hmm….i guess that is what we ALL have become, we have been reduced to mere zombies. For the last 21 years I have been studying, and all this studying has finally given me is a bag full of redundant bits of information which builds up a fraudulent reality. A reality so concocted that it seizes to be anything but reality. When I look around I realize that its not jst me but almost 99.9% of the population is drowned in the pseudo reality, by what we call “EDUCATION".
what has all this “Education” given us..?? Most think that “Education” gives us the power to think, power to act, power of rational thinking………HAHA…really…!!!! Power to think and power of rational thinking needs no “Education” only if we are ready to keep an open mind & understand the world around us and observe it carefully. All this, so called “education” does is to preconditions us, trains us to just be SLAVES or ZOMBIES…and lays the ground for concocted reality. We are slaves of our social system, slaves of our monetary system, slaves of our political system. Every day and since ages we are being manipulated by these three, but we all fail to realize. We study some shit, so called “Educate” ourselves so that we get some good Job, some big bucks , marry and have a so called balanced n a happy family….Holy SHIT…but all we are doing is falling prey to the monetary, social and political system.
Is that what “Education” is …??? What we term as “Education” is just a big dark curtain put right before our eyes so that we never get to see what lies beyond. But such an “Education” is just the manifestation of our obsession for materialistic world. Wow….these couple of words('materialistic world') are ones which hv been long forgotten and almost obliterated from literature….SAD but again TRUE…!!!!
So I guess its time to shed some light on what I mean by ‘Reality’. First let me tell you that there probably is "NO" reality ……bt at the same time there might very well be a multitude of realities, which exist before us. Reality is not static but dynamic. To understand the notion of it, I need to take you to Vedic textures. But before I do i need to add that all Vedic textures and literature and are truly amazing (they have bowled me over), they are definitely the greatest repository of philosophy, advanced knowledge and high thinking. So we need to understand what ‘Reality’ is...if at all there is one. And for that we need to comprehend something called “MAYA”, which forms the very base of Hindu philosophy. We all remember this word, as a philosophical shit coined by the rishi’s …right…SAD but needless to say TRUE…!! But it is no philosophical shit, instead it has deep rooted scientific concept and understanding which the modern science(so called mordern) recently is getting to terms with through Quantum physics.
What the concept of MAYA proposes is that “Brahman satya, jagat mithya” …which actually means that pure consciousness is the only reality while the physical world is nothing but virtual reality. Gaudapada a philosopher and a rishi describes “life as a waking dream, and that world exists only in the mind of Man”. Which implies that it’s not you who is sitting in the room, instead the room which is sitting inside you, inside your brain. Just as sunlight falling on the finger appears straight when finger is straight and crooked when it is crooked, but in reality it is neither the one nor the other. What we see around us is jst the manifestation of our Consciousness, which implies that the entire matter world is just a fallacy, there is NO Matter, there is NO Space and Time. This is may be just too a BIG proposition..or probably not...!!
Hans Peter Durr, a quantum physicist once said that "whatever is matter, is not made of matter". Matter as we know exist only in the mind. Consciousness is more fundamental than matter,space and time…Consciousness is in everything and everything is in Consciousness. What we experience can be an illusion, bt what cannot be doubted is the fact that we r experiencing, that is the result of consciousness. A quantum physicist could put it this way, variations in the conscious field are perceived as an image(form) in the mind. Hence the material world is just the appearance in the mind.
So the obvious question now is what is Consciousness…?? what is it made of…?? It is something which has eluded so called modern science till now. What can be said as of now is that Consciousness is not the manifestation of matter, matter is insentient and something so unconscious cannot give rise to consciousness. Actually the bigger and more critical question is that how does consciousness manifests into all these diverse forms…?? Probably, in order to unravel these mysteries one has to dwell deep into the self and touch the realms of metaphysics.
What I have discussed hr might seem pretty imbecilic & bt it has far reaching implications, beyond all imagination. It could mean that all that we have seen, learnt and probably experienced is just one big fallacy. We could very well be living in a MATRIX, the Matrix of materialistic world. But the saddest part is, the one who creates this Matrix is none but Us.
I guess by now you guys must be pretty bored and exhausted…..so its time to bid adieu. But before I go, i would like to add that, always keep an open mind and rationalize your thoughts because what you see may not be the Reality but just your metal projection and remember ....
