A Quote by David R. Hawkins on synchronicity, consciousness, and causality

THe database behaves like an electrostatic condenser with a field of potentiality, rather than a battery with a stored charge.  A question can't be asked unless there's already the potentiality of the answer.  The reason for this is that the question and answer are both created out of the same paradigm and , therefore, are exactly symeterical --there can be no "up" without an already existent "down".  Causality occurs as simultaneity rather than as a sequence; synchronicity is the term used by Jung to explain this phenomenon in human experience.  As we understand from our examination  of physics, an event "here" in the universe doesn't "cause" an event to occur "there" --instead, both appear at the same time.

WHat's the connection between these events, then, if it isn't a Newtonian linear sequence of cause and effect?  Obviously, the two are related or connected to each other in some invisible manner, but not by gravity or magnetism, or even by a cosmic field of such magnitude that it includes both events.  The "connection" between any two events occurs only in the observer's consciousness --he "sees" a connection and describes a "pair" of events, hypothesizing a relationship.  This relationship is a concept in the mind of the observer; it isn't necessary that any corollary external event exists in the universe.  Unless there's an underlying attractor pattern, nothing can be experienced. Thus, the entire manifest universe is its own simultaneous expression and experience of itself.

Omniscience is omnipotent and omnipresent.  There's no distance between the unknown and the known --the known is manifest from the unknown merely by the asking.  For example, the Empire State Building was born in the mind of its achitects --human consciousness is the agent that can transform an unseen concept into its manifested experience, which is therefore frozen in time ...

... Time, then, is much like a hologram that already stands complete; it's a subjective, sensory effect of a progressively moving point of view.  There's no beginning or end to a hologram, it's already everywhere, complete --in fact, the appearance of being "unfinished" is part of its completeness.  Even the phenomenon of "unfoldment" itself reflects a limited point of view;  There is no enfolded and unfolded universe, only a becoming awareness.  Our perception of events happening in time is analogous to a traveler watching the landscape unfold before him.  But to say that the landscape unfolds before a traveller is merely a figure of speech --nothing is actually unfolding: nothing is actually becoming manifest.  There's only the progression of awareness.

These paradoxes dissolve in the greater paradigm that includes both opposites, wherein oppositions as such are only related to the locations of the observer.  This transcendence of opposition occurs sponteneously at consciousness levels of 600 and above.  The notion that there's a "knower" and a "known" is in itself dualistic, in that it implies a separation between subject and object (which, again, can only be inferred by the artificial adoption of a point of observation).  The Maker of all things in Heaven and on Earth, of all things visible and invisible, stands beyond both, includes both, and is one with both.  Existence, is, therefore, merely a statement that awareness is aware of its awareness and of its expression as consciousness ...
