Multiple Dimensions of Reality

 

       “ I AM NOT  I”

 

I am not I.

                        I am this one

Walking beside me whom I do not see,

Whom at times I manage to visit,

And at other times I forget.

The one who remains silent when I talk,

The one who forgives, sweet, when I hate,

The one who takes a walk when I am indoors,

The one who will remain standing when I die.

                                                                  –  Juan Ramón Jiménez

 

 

To me it is wonderful – that there are (a few) actual people who are able directly to apprehend such truths (as expressed in the epigram, by Jimenez)    

Rilke has such insight, and Machado … probably Neruda (and others, no doubt)

Me – I’m a thinker and a philosopher (and I’ll write a poem when I HAVE to), and I’ve studied some.  But basically such ‘direct apprehension’ seems to be above my pay grade. The reason that I regard as true – the basic notion in the epigram – is that it is confirmed by my studies.

I happen to have a very high regard for the British philosopher, G. K. Chesterton, who said –

“The whole order of things is as outrageous as any miracle which could presume to violate it.”

We all believe in the ‘physical world’.  And we’ve heard rumors (at least) – of ‘metaphysical’ phenomena.

‘Metaphysical’ means – ‘beyond the physical’ … things that are ‘way out there’ on the iffy rim of the horizon.  And we say this because we imagine that here at the center of reality – things are physical; and out there somewhere, in ooga-booga land, may also exist realities NON-physical.

But really, I think, we have it backwards (or maybe inside-out) … because here at the center is the ‘EXPERIENCER’, who is wonderfully non-material and airy.  And we do NOT just experience material things; we also experience joy and sorrow, loneliness, beauty, grief, music, humor, love … quite a range of emotions and feelings.  I suggest this is good reason to conclude that we are multi-dimensional beings. Mmm ?

[“Spock!  You green blooded, pointy-eared hobgoblin!”   “Calm yourself, Doctor”]

For several years I worked as a Hospice CNA; and I think it’s fair to say that we humans live in more than a single dimension … (certainly, at least) if we take into account the ‘normal’ experiences of people who are nearing death.

Dr. Christopher Kerr (a physician, who has bothered to study the experiences of the dying … and work up a data base)   gives a very good TED talk:

His findings corroborate my own experience – that even while the body is dying, real healing may be happening at other levels.

 

In general, here is what I suspect from many decades of (broad) enquiry and thought –

that we all live in a vibrational BAND (or dimensional frequency range); and this band is not completely narrow.  And it is also somewhat labile. We are capable (sometimes, under certain conditions) of upshifting slightly … maybe even more than slightly.

You are probably familiar with the ‘single photon, double slit’ experiment – which seems to suggest that there is ambiguity regarding particle and wave … and (unavoidable) interaction of the ‘observer’, the observer’s “participation” in the outcome.

But, I wonder – maybe light (for example) exists SIMULTANEOUSLY as Particle and Wave … only in DIFFERENT DIMENSIONS.

Mmm ?

(and WE happen to SHARE these same dimensions with light)?

  1. I’ve been surfing on-line more than three hours these days, yet I never found any interesting article
    like yours. It is beautiful value enough for me.

    In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content
    material as you did, the internet will be a lot
    more helpful than ever before.
