causality

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 ...

A Quote by Dean Radin on classic physics, physic, determinism, causality, locality, reality, time, and space

Classical physics rests upon five basic assumptions about the fabric of reality:  reality, locality, causality, and determinism.  These assumptions were postulated to take place within a framework of an absolute fixed space and time.  It was also taken for granted that the mathematical descriptions of physical processes corresponded to the actual behavior of objective events.

            The assumption of reality refers to the idea that the physical world is objectively real.  That means it exists independently of whether anyone is observing it.  The moon is still there even if you aren’t looking at it.  Locality refers to the idea that the only way that objects can be influenced is through direct contact.  Unmediated action at a distance is prohibited, as this is uncomfortably close to the occult suggestion that invisible spirits can cause things to occur, and the occult concepts are anathema to science.

            Causality assumed that the arrow of time points in one direction, and thus that cause → effect sequences are absolutely fixed.  Continuity assumes that there are no discontinuous jumps in nature or in that the fabric of space and time is “smooth.”  Determinism assumes that, as Einstein once quipped, ‘God does not play dice with the universe,’ meaning that things progress in an orderly, predictable way.  We might not be smart enough or know enough to predict everything, but determinism says that in principle we can predict the future completely if we knew all the starting conditions and causal linkages.

A Quote by David R. Hawkins on causality, linear, god, and truth

Q: We note that your lectures always start with the same opening statement, "Everything is happening of its own; nothing is causing anything else."

A: The belief in linear causality is a basic axiom of the whole structure of the ego/mind dualistic belief system.  To see through that illusion is the most important and greatest leap available for getting closer to comprehending Reality.

It is critical to grasp that the illusion of linear causality as an explanation for the observed phenomena of life is the major and most profound limitation of thinkingness.  It is the major block that cannot be transcended even by intellectual geniuses who characteristically calibrate at 499.  The intellect which serves to aid the progress of civilization becomes entrenched in the psyche and becomes the major obstacle to Realization.  Although causality (calibration 426) is a major illusion, it is really not a difficult one to solve once it is disassembled.

Mentation, reason, logic, and language are all structured dualistically, based on the axiom that there is a subject and an object, that there is a 'this' doing or causing a 'that'.  Reason strives to find a connection between a witnessed phenomenon and some antecedent which is most commonly located in prior time.  Logic then concludes that what precedes an event must somehow be its 'cause' or explanation.  It confuses temporal sequence with causation.

The term "cause" is an abstract hypothesis, a tautology, an intellectualization which has no concordant substrate in reality.  It is at best an operational supposition to satisfy the mind's requirement for an 'explanation'.  Fallacy arises out of the mind's proclivity to ask the redundant and fatal question "Why?"

We have stated elsewhere that there is no 'why' to anything in Reality and, in fact, no 'why' can be answered and still stay within Reality.  All answers to "why" questions are intrinsically fallacious as they require a jump from verifiable observables to hypothetical suppositions which are all mentations.

Events and conditions have a source or origination but not a cause.  The concept of 'cause' limits comprehension to content only, whereas, in reality, all content is subject to context.  This is the very crux of the understanding that allows consciousness to jump from 499 to the 500s.

Neither God nor Truth can be found within the limitation of content only for, by simple observation, content is only definition or description whereas context supplies meaning, significance, and concordance with the reality of existence itself.  This is important to comprehend not only in spiritual work but also in everyday social and political policies.

To fail to properly contextualize content has historically been the basis for the slaughter of millions of people in every century throughout human history.  To ignore context is the greatest source of catastrophe for every generation of man, and it continutes on in the present time with the same catastrophic consequences.  There is no greater lesson that needs to be learned to reduce human suffering and bring ignorance to an end.

A Quote by Sol Luckman on sheldrake, formative causation, causality, distance healing, remote healing, energy medicine, morphic, morphogenic, space-time, unity consciousness, consciousness, resonance, sound, harmonics, cymatics, chardin, noosphere, zeitg

Sheldrake’s concept of “formative causation” emphasizes the existence of “morphic fields” that unite entire species universally outside space-time. According to Sheldrake, these omnipresent resonance fields can actually be expressed biologically if correctly tuned into--for example, through DNA--even if a species is extinct. Some readers may also be familiar with the notion of “noosphere,” the name given by the great Jesuit philosopher Pierre Teilhard de Chardin to the field of mind and thought that encircles the planet and enables zeitgeist to happen: spontaneous transfer of ideas and technologies that suddenly seem to leap from consciousness to consciousness.
