Dear Group,
I'm trying to understand whether or not the first
three states or planes of consciousness correspond to the first three sets:
zero, one and two. And if so gain insight into the intimacy of these
planes through meditating on the intimate relationships between these
sets.
1. Empty Set
2. Set containing the empty set
3. Set containing both of the
above
or.
1. Zero
2. One
3. Two
or.
1. (
)
2. ( ( ) )
3. ( ( ), ( (
) ) )
Let's pretend that we enter into the emptyset as
if it were an empty consciousness. Then we might "see":
1.
2. (
)
3. ( ( ),
)
In other words:
1. Consciousness which is empty
2. Consciousness which contains the
representation ofempty
consciousness
3. Consciousness which contains
repre
sentations of both states
above.
Two things one might notice which seem very very
cool.
If one is at the third state of consciousness and
focuses on the number 1. state one becomes most resonate
with the number 2. state.
(
)
If one is at the third state but instead focusing
on the representation of number 2. then one would be most resonant with
the number 3. state.
( (
) )
By doing so the effect would be to be resonant to
the number 2. state and then to the number 3. state, like
going in and out of pralaya.( from Atma to Monadic, back to
Atma, etc.)
The other interesting observation is to recognize
that:
1. Here there is no inside and no
outside
and can be no symbol. A
mathematical point has no inside but must have an outside.
2. Here there is inside but no outside,
in fact, all of abstract space
itself. There is no abstract
space outside of abstract
space.
3. Here there is that which has inside but
no outside together, but it is
together in the same state
of consciousness as that with no
inside
and no outside, ( that with no
inside and no outside is like a mathematical
point without any spacein which
to be
expressed.)
BUT
Can't these two, now found in state number
3., now be superimposed? We could then get:
1.
2.
(
)
3. (
. )
Now, at level three, the mathematical point can
appear as the abstract space it needed was represented at level two. One
can concentrate on the point without any abstract space, and fail, or one
can concentrate on the space without any point, and just rest, or one can
concentrate on both and then the point can appear.
This is why I'm thinking that the first three sets
in mathematics corresponds to the first three abstract planes in any septenate
of states(or planes) of consciousness.
1. Zero
2. One
3. Two
represented as
1.
2.
(
)
3. (
. )
This yields our beginning and ending pointand it
can polarize into the line and the line can be used to construct a triangleand
the triangle can be used to construct a tetrahedron, etc.
