The speaking tree - From Mahashoonya, Opposites Arise

Today I realized that little things are infinitely the most important. Read this:

If you have a zero on the left side of an equation, you must have positive and negative quantities on the right side, which cancel each other out. The simplest case is 0 = +5 -5. More complex examples are 0 = +4 +6 -10 and 0 = +7 +4 -5 -6. There can be infinite such equations. In other words, we can say that zero is not really nothing', but it can potentially give rise to infinite possibilities. There is an equation which is not really an equation, 0 = 0, but more about it at the end of this article! Indian spirituality talks aboutmahashoonya', a big zero that precedes and succeeds physical creation. It is nothing' only relative to what we understand bything' in the physical world as perceived by our physical senses. So Brahmn or mahashoonya is nothing like what we know or can perceive. That is why it is shoonya ¬ zero. But yet, it has infinite potentialities which manifest as this magnificent and tremendously varied creation. Just as in the mathematical concept of equation with zero on the left side as mentioned above, this mahashoonya also must create opposites that balance out each other.In the simplest case, if a thing' is created, there has to be ananti-thing' that is equal to and opposite of thing'. In a more complex case, there may be athing' and many antithings' that together are equal to and opposite of thething'.Even more complex case is where there are many things' and manyanti-things' that together cancel each other. In other words, mahashoonya creates a perceiver and the opposite of it ¬ the perceived. The perceiver and the perceived are not independent of each other. One cannot exist without the other, just as in the simplest equation above, only +5 cannot exist in the equation, just as much as only -5 also cannot. So we can say that perceiver and perceived have existence only relative to each other.For example, it is because we have sense of touch, the feeling of hot and cold exists. So, skin with touch sense and the physical objects that can be sensed by the skin are opposi tes of each other. Likewise, the other four senses and their sense objects are opposites. Hot and cold, for example, are not really opposites in this sense. They are only different points on the same linear scale of the perceived.Hot is merely at a higher temperature than the cold on a scale of heat as perceived by our touch sense. In a dream, a different kind of creation happens with different pairs of perceiver and perceived quite unlike our waking state creation. In the dream, we hear a sound without our waking state ears. In fact that sound in the dream is not like the waking state sound which can be heard by everybody else around ¬ it is heard' only by the dreamer. The dream creates opposites from a shoonya. In the dream, the shoonya gives rise to dream hearing sense and its anti, the dream sound, which vanish into nothingness or become shoonya again, after the dream ends. Likewise, the so-called waking state creation is also a dream at another level. It arises out of the mahashoonya and then dissolves back into it when the waking state dream ends and wetruly wake up' at another level of consciousness ¬ the spiritually enlightened state ¬ equivalent to the equation 0 = 0!

Richard Feynman proposed how we could come up with an equation that explains everything we know about physics. First, collect every known equation of physics, such as \(E=m{ c }^{ 2 }\), and rearrange them to the form \(0=\left(...\right)\), as in \(0=\left( E-m{ c }^{ 2 } \right) \). Then you multiply all of them together, to one giant expression \(0=\left( Equation1 \right) \left( Equation2 \right) \left( Equation3 \right) ....\), which is a single equation that would explain everything.

@Michael Mendrin can you explain? Raven Herd · 1 year, 12 months ago

@Raven Herd Well, I don't think I'll be able to explain everything. Maybe Richard's point was that a lot of physics depends on quantities that are supposed to be equal, which is another way of saying that the difference between them need to be \(0\)? I think more likely his point was that you still need to understand the significance of EACH of the equations going into the "Equation of All Equations that equals \(0\)" Michael Mendrin · 1 year, 12 months ago
