The first step might be, from the standpoint of our physical senses, as well
as from our mental and spiritual thinking and intuition, to accept the
theosophical principle that ALL things -- whether the intangible
multidimensional aspects of the earlier, primal, non metric primal beginning
of the cosmos, or the tangible forms of our later measurable physical
space-time -- are simply transformative, interrelated energy fields evolved
out of ONE thing (the first primal triune field or cosmic being[s] that
emanated out of the ineffable Absolute "rootless root" or "causeless cause").
Such being the case, then the vibrations that make up the earlier ingredients
that are linked to the primal source, and the later evolved (and involved)
ingredients growing out of their evolutionary transformations, as fields
within fields within fields, etc., are eternally linked together and can
influence each other through the holographic information carried by their
analogous wave forms (descending from the near infinite frequency spectrums
of the primal space to the analogous lower frequencies of our physical
space-time) -- coupled with the intelligent, self conscious WILL rooted in
their common points of origin. Therefore, any willfully induced change on
any of these "coadunate but not consubstantial" interconnected fields of
consciousness should be able to be transferred to and influence the actions,
forms, memory, intelligence, knowledge, etc., of all the other fields of
consciousness within any closed system.
This relates to the seven fold nature of both the cosmos and each individual
being in it -- from the most tenuous spiritual to the most gross physical
aspects of both the earlier (spiritual to physical) fields or levels of
consciousness of the primal cosmic beings, to those of the later beings that
inhabit our presently experienced physical space-time universe.
Doesn't this also relate to the theosophical teachings that no motion in the
universe is ever lost, and that the ultimate memory of all action in the
universe ultimately ends up as a memory in the higher fields of Akasha which
empowers the "skandas" or tendencies that ultimately governs our karma -- as
well as correlate with the scientific theories of "symmetry" and
"conservation of energy"? Perhaps, in this sense, modern and post modern
science and theosophy are not so far apart -- as HPB predicted might occur in
Science, of course, that can only objectively examine the physical universe
from a reductive point of view -- to induce the general from a knowledge
(obtained by direct observation or measurement) of the particulars -- may
never be able to fully understand the fundamental nature of all beings that
descend from the general to the particular... Except, perhaps, they can come
closer -- through the use of forms of abstract mathematics that has recently
led to the Superstring/Membrane theory postulating a multidimensional
universe that underlies the subtle zero-point energy fields of so called
empty space, as well as the gross energy fields that make up the mass-of all
the physical objects from quantum particles to galactic stars.
Unfortunately, these theories only reach as far as the physical plane of
existence, and cannot penetrate to the earlier cosmic fields out of which it
has evolved -- or even postulate the existence of invisible inner fields,
from spiritual through mental to astral that exist within every sentient
being. But, perhaps, other forms of transcendental mathematics, such as the
theory of sets that consider the possibility of an infinite series of
infinities, may eventually be able to cross over this gap. Only time will
tell how soon this can happen.
I hope this is a sufficient start to give us a basis for further discussion.
