Thanks for all of your contributions through which mind is so
stimulated. Here is my question back to you.
> A particle of light has no mass whatsoever. There is no time for
But apparently it does, as the astronomers have measured and recorded
the bending of star light as photons pass the vicinity of large
massive objects such as a star. And also we must ask how could light,
if there is no mass, being drawn inescapably into a black hole?
This mechanical law of matter is apparently in accord with the
Theosophical Doctrine of Pralaya. Pralaya being the withdrawl of all
manifestion, Manvatara, into non-being, the uncreated where awaiting
the karmic impulse to once again awaken and be drawn forth. I think
that another analogy can be drawn between the in breathing of Pralaya
and the out breathing of Manvantara with the microcosmic pranic
breath or winds that pulse through these bodies that we call ours.
However, there may be other ways to look at light and consider, than
the western science of physics normally contends with. For instance,
the light that appears within the mind as a dream or a vision of some
objects? What of the light of a thought? I believe that there is some
kind of awareness, that could be considered as a kind of light that
may not be totally insubstantial and yet totally transcendental. In
my experience this is where light is not bound by time or space.
