Reality Itself Is Not In The Middle

by Adi Da Samraj

1.

The scientific description of light as an appearance characterized by both "particles" and "waves" is further explained (and unified) if light is understood (and observed) to be always in a spiral (or helix) form—like the material form of DNA (which is, itself, a direct materialization of the structure of light).

If a spiral-form is seen at its point of rotation (or its crossover joint), it is observable as a "particle"—and if the same spiral-form is seen with reference to its limbs of rotation (before or after its point of rotation, or its crossover joint), it is observable as a "wave".

So, also, light is observable as both "particle" and "wave"—depending on which phase of its process is observed by attention (or "point of view", or ego-"I") in time and space.

A vibrating string can be seen to demonstrate the same spiraliform gait as any mode of observable light—and, so, as a kind of poetic inspiration, modern scientists have proposed numerous "string theories", in their search for the "knowledge" that will "explain everything".

Nevertheless, whether light is observed (and, thus, understood) as a "particle" or as a "wave" or as a "string", that observation (or understanding) is, itself, an act of "perspectival objectification", wherein and whereby Reality Itself is reduced—by the very act of observation, or understanding, or mental fabrication—to a relation (and, thus, a subordinate) of attention, or "point of view", or ego-"I".

The ancient and modern perspectival "objectification" of Reality Itself as either "Deity", or "self", or "world" has historically extended the naive illusion (or naive "realism", or ego-based illusionism) of separateness, relatedness, otherness, and "difference" that is inherent to the space-time "self"-locatedness of attention, or "point of view", or ego-"I".

2.

An "object" is (or appears as) an "object" only because it is being perceived or conceived from a "point of view" in space and time.

Therefore, What Is the Nature, Condition, or State of an "object" when "it" is not being viewed from any "point of view" in space and time?

Apart from "point of view", are there any "objects" (as such)—or any "differences" at all?

Or, rather, if all possible "objects" (or "differences") are simultaneously existing—as they must be, unless and until "point of view" differentiates and particularizes them—then What Is the Nature, Condition, or State of that simultaneous totality?

The "world" of memory and perception and all of thinking is a "point-of-view"-fabrication.

The "experientially" (and, thus, conditionally) "known world" is brain's illusion of "out there", devised by attention's perspective and made important by the persistence of ego "I" (or the presumption of separate "self').

Apart from the defining and categorizing done by ego-I", What Is That Totality Beyond perspective, and thought, and every now of time, and every place of space-"locatedness"?

That "What" Is The Only "Universe" That Really Is.

And no brain-made mind or body-"self" can say That "Universe" is seen by any ego-"I" at any time or place.

The search for "knowledge" is hunter-gatherer behavior, based on the ancient pre-"civilized" brain.

The search for "knowledge" leads to "Scapegoat" (or "object-in-the-middle") rituals, in which power is always exercised over the "middle" (even to the degree of destroying it).
 

Reality Itself is not in the "middle".

Reality Itself Is Inherently and Perfectly Prior to all-and-All. Ancient "religious" humankind thought and actively believed that the Sun revolves around the Earth.

Reality Itself does not surround or "revolve around" attention, or "point of view", or ego-"I".

Modern "scientific" humankind thinks and actively believes that the Earth revolves around the Sun.

Attention, or "point of view", or ego-"I", does not surround or "revolve around" Reality Itself.

Reality Itself egolessly, Indivisibly, and Divinely Is As Is—always already Prior to attention, "point of view", and ego-"I".

Reality Itself Is Self-Evidently Divine.

Reality Itself Is The Only Divine.

Reality Itself is not a Deity.

Reality Itself is not a relation of attention, "point of view", or ego-"I".

Reality Itself—or The Divine Itself—Is The egoless and relationless Context of all-and-All.

The ancients thought What Is Divine to be a Deity—or The Great Relation of attention, "point of view", and ego-"I".

Over time, humankind subordinated "The Deity"—or "The Great Relation"—to attention, "point of view", and ego-"I".

Eventually, "The Deity"—or "The Great Relation"—was reduced to "Scapegoat" status, as a mere "object" of exploitation by attention, "point of view", and ego-"I".

At last, "The Deity"—or "The Great Relation"—was "scientifically" (and, thus and thereby, "officially") discarded, or relegated to the status of a non-thought, or a non-idea, or a mere illusion (not to be thought again).

In the course of the cultural, social, and political history of "The Deity"—or "The Great Relation" anciently invented by human thought—attention itself, or "point of view" itself, or the ego-I" itself has, reductively and progressively (and, now, finally), become the Reality-Facsimile, and the Great Subject, and the Principal Occupation of humankind.


4.

It is—now and urgently—time for a new understanding of Reality Itself to emerge.

The old cultures of ego-based fabrications of Reality Itself and the reductionism of "point of view" have been disproved by the persistence of Reality Itself—Which refuses all human efforts to subordinate "It" to attention, "point of view", or ego-"I".

Neither attention itself, nor "point of view" itself, nor ego-"I" itself Is (in and of and as itself) Reality Itself.

Reality Itself Is That Which Inherently and Self-Evidently Transcends attention, "point of view", and ego-I".

Reality Itself Is That Which Is Realizable only if and as attention, or "point of view", or ego-"I" is transcended in Reality Itself.

The Way of Realizing Reality Itself is not "religious"—or a path of seeking toward union (or re-unification) with Reality itself conceived as a Deity.

The Way of Realizing Reality Itself is not "scientific"—or a path of seeking to "know" (and, thus and thereby, to control) Reality Itself conceived as a relation (and, as such, a subordinate) of attention, or of "point of view", or of ego-"I".

Reality Itself is not an "Object" or a "Goal" of attention, "point of view", or ego-"I".

Reality Itself is not "outside" attention, "point of view", or ego-"I".

Reality Itself is not "inside" attention, "point of view", or ego-"I".

Reality Itself Is The egoless Non-relation—or The Perfectly Prior, Acausal, and Indivisible Context—of all-and-All.

Reality Itself Is The Intrinsically Self-Evident and Self-Evidently Divine Self-Nature, Self-Condition, and Self-State of all apparent modes of "subject" (or of conditionally apparent consciousness) and all apparent modes of "object" (or of conditionally apparent light, or energy, or space, or time).

Reality Itself Is Indivisible Conscious Light Itself.

Reality Itself Is The Non-"Objective" and Non-"Iconic" Real God of all-and-All.

Reality Itself Is The Non-"Objective" and Indivisible Spiral and Sphere of egoless Conscious Light.

Reality Itself Is The Only Cure for the perennial epidemic of human "religious" and anti-"religious" psychoses.

All of the perennial human "religious" and anti-"religious" psychoses—whether personal, or social, or cultural, or political—are merely symptoms of egoity (or of the faults of attention, or "point of view"), which "cause" and, altogether, indicate the egoically reactive human refusal of The Intrinsic and Essential Self-Nature, Self-Condition, and Self-State of egoless and Non-"different" Inherence In and As Reality Itself.

Reality Itself is not in the "middle"—but Reality Itself Is That Acausal Omni-Presence In and As Which all-and-All arises as a merely apparent modification of Itself.
