Transcend the Illusion that We are Each Here Alone

Transcend the Illusion of Being Seperate

The thought experiments from my previous blog entries are leading me to ask some really significant questions. When I do the exercises, it always seems like so much more time has elapsed than what my watch is actually telling me. What is this relationship with time? Why does it appear to slow down and speed up? When we are visioning, where are we really?
After my experiment in the park today, I decided to go home and watch the movie "Kate and Leopold". Hmmmmmm to my surprise it was about Time Travel. Finding a flaw in the timespace continuum, the characters can be transported back and forth to the past and present. At one point, time is compared to a supersonic train where the world is "just blowing by". One line of the movie which captivates me is:

"...imagine if we could stop that train and get out, look around and see time for what it really is...a universe, a world, a thing as unimaginable as color to a dog and as real and tangible as that chair you're sitting on. If we could see like that, I mean really look at it, then maybe we could see the flaws in it as well as the form..."

Well now I was hooked into finding out what timespace continuum means. The easiest I can understand is that space(3 dimensional) and time (4th dimension?) are one continuum or arena of time and place. Rather than just measuring the variables to isolate a single point, this way of measuring actually locates an event happening between particles. (Huh?) I imagined it must be like stopping a movie in a certain place and freeze framing it. How can we measure Existence loaded with endless possible outcomes? Ok that was already alot for my brain to handle but then my eyes fell upon an experiment done in 1997 by Nicolas Gisin. He was a scientist greatly influenced by Einstein's experiments with measuring the location and momentum of two moving particles. In his experiment, Nicolas Gisin divided a single photon into two and had them travel away from each other in a fibre optics cable. Scanning the photons when they were 10km apart, he observed that what happened to one photon still affected what happened to the other. That is incredible!

So if particles as minute as photons can communicate with each other over long distances, what does that mean about life in general? About time? Everything is connected in Oneness. What any one of us does affects all of us because the particles within us have all been a part of this world since the beginning. This brings me back to the original task of timing the visioning exercises. Is there another time and space we reach into in the visioning process? Emotionally I feel so present in my imagination. How far does this Oneness reach? It feels so real. So much seems to be happening in such a short amount of time. I still have so much to discover.

The great explorer Albert Einstein found such humanity and compassion through his life long search for some of these answers. His findings and his influence continues to inspire us onward in discovering who we are and where we can go from here. This post is dedicated to him today. Remember his words:

"A human being is a part of the whole, called by us the “Universe”, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separate from the rest - A kind of Optical Illusion of his Consciousness. This delusion is a kind of a prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from the prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security."

-Albert Einstein

If you would like to try some of the "Ancient Secrets of Success" thought experiments, just listen to this audio clip by Mr. Tulshi Sen. His work is cutting edge in the field of Visioning and freedom of thought. His pioneering achievements in the field of business and the individual life focusses on release from dependency on conditions while strengthening the inner faculties of Self-Reliance.

My thinking is that time is elastic ...just like the heart.
