I was watching Particle Fever, a PBS program about the physicists at CERN trying to get the particles in their huge collider to smash into each other. This was a huge project of many years to figure out how with the use of magnets to make it work.
Super Symmetry and multiverse. There was a wonderful graphic showing the multiverse as almost entirely space with occasional universes like ours. It looked like what the idea of reality could be with only 1/4 of all being made manifest where we are and in other spots. Super Symmetry is the idea that there is something, some force that is not random keeping the known universe together, otherwise it would disintegrate at some point.
When the physicists discussed the “black holes”, they were positing that they would be made up of particles yet to be discovered. Clearly, they are unable to imagine anything in the universe that would not be some kind of matter.
Physicists are for the most part materialists, not being able to imagine any alternative.
Yet the Vedas clearly say that Brahman creates matter of varying densities in each Yuga that are expressed in 100 manvantaras of cycles of 3-1/2 billion years, and then an equal amount of time in which the manifest universe has been withdrawn. We do not have the ability to imagine what an unmanifest field could be, but that does not mean that it does not happen from time to time. We know that 3/4 of the multiverse never manifests, but we cannot imagine that either. We cannot imagine in our human state what Brahman is.
Man – Manu, manifest, manvantara. This is not a coincidence of syllables but rather an underlying concept. Man in any English or Sanskrit word means mind at its root. The manifest universe is created by Mind.
Man is distinguished from animals by mind, a concept much more encompassing than intellect. In the Book of Genesis, Jehova/Yaweh/the All in All is said to have created humans in his image. Brahman is the entire field-without-end of Mind, Consciousness, and we like Brahman are more than animals, we share Mind, Consciousness.
When Jesus says to his followers that whatever he has done (with his siddhis,) they can do greater things, he is talking about the ability of Mind (his and ours) to manifest our desires. This can be done through directing our shakti at the higher chakras (3-6) by our minds to make manifest. This ability can be used in prayer to make healing manifest, etc.
