Re: space and time

Hi Steve,

The strange thing is - I feel I know for a fact that atma,
or absolute consciousness, or something is outside space in
time - as in: space and time are absolutely irrelevant to
atma. But my mind can't make heads or tails of it. Seems
your reasoning is about the same. As in Atma (both
absolutely conscious and absolutely unconscious) is
unconscious of space and time? Anyhow - the essential unity
is *larger* than space and time - or infinitely smaller. 
This really goes beyond words, doesn't it?
