RE: How does Infinity simply 'become' aware.
Repeat: God begins and ends in mystery. I like that - because God is not comprehendable by the human mind. According to the sages, however, we can join with/experience directly God. Our human reasonings are limited.
Please take what is relevant to you and discard the rest.

You keep referring this origin behind the origin. Then I will answer to you this way: the "origin" behind absolutely All That Is, Was, and Shall Ever Always Be, is a MYSTERY.

Whether the Source of the One Infinite Creator is this Mystery or the Mystery is the One Infinite Creator is, in my opinion, a semantic problem which is rather pointless arguing over.

Quote:Sound is the frequency of the vibration of light as it extends from the Source concentrically. Matter would be the condensed form of vibration as it moves further from Its Source. I don’t know if that is scientifically appropriate or not, but that is the best way for me to describe my thinking.

Matter is condensed light. Vibration, or Love, is the "Architect," if you will, which organizes, manifests and arranges this light in various patterns, forms, shapes and configurations and degrees of "solidity," so to speak. Using this analogy, light is not the Architect but the Architecture. Yet the Architecture is full of the Love of the Architect, and therefore the Architect is within its Architecture.

If you prefer to continue seeing "The One True Light" as The Source of everything, I shall continue to respect that and acknowledge it as a valid choice of understanding/interpretation (provided it works for you and aids you in your path of seeking).

Quote:I cannot accept this because in my thinking once again, this seems to inappropriately define infinity. How can infinity be preceded?

Before Infinity became aware/conscious/intelligent, what was it? I do not know, therefore it is a Mystery to me.

Quote:May I ask you a question with regard to potential which you define as the nature and latent energy of the Void.
What do you suppose is intelligent in Infinity, if it does not experience itself or know itself? That does not seem to be intelligence of any sort.

In a sequential fashion, first comes the awareness of Infinity of its own infinitude, and hence its own Infinite POTENTIAL for experiencing/knowing Itself. Then comes the will/choice to FOCUS upon a particular system of experience. Thirdly, LIGHT is formed, and the stage is set for the experiencing of said system of experience.

Or, even, what is the sound of infinity?

I cannot answer, for still seek to fully attain it.

RE: How does Infinity simply 'become' aware.
Does infinity become aware, or is infinity already aware? I think words fail here. I suspect "become" is the wrong verb here because it implies a temporal element that Ra has already suggested is illusory.

RE: How does Infinity simply 'become' aware.
If the following repeats concepts that have already been offered, I apologize, as I have not read every single post in this thread. Unfortunately, my time is often limited.

In my opinion, when Ra stated that "infinity became aware", it was intended to imply that infinity became *self* aware. Previous to self-awareness, which is the focus known as Logos, there was simply awareness of infinite potential. Awareness of infinite potential, is the irreducible base state of consciousness, and cannot be reduced farther. All constructs/energy in existence is derived from this fundamental energy which is consciousness.

The picture most would have at this point is the image of the canvas, awaiting the painting. However, the analogy is not perfect, and the following Ra quote exemplifies why:

Quote:82.10 Questioner: Why does this partaking in the original thought have a gradient radially outward? That’s the way I understand your statement.

Ra: I am Ra. This is the plan of the One Infinite Creator. The One Original Thought is the harvest of all previous, if you would use this term, experience of the Creator by the Creator. As It decides to know Itself It generates Itself into that plenum, full of the glory and the power of the One Infinite Creator which is manifested to your perceptions as space or outer space. Each generation of this knowing begets a knowing which has the capacity, through free will, to choose methods of knowing Itself. Therefore, gradually, step by step, the Creator becomes that which may know Itself, and the portions of the Creator partake less purely in the power of the original word or thought. This is for the purpose of refinement of the one original thought. The Creator does not properly create as much as It experiences Itself.

A plenum is the opposite of a vacuum. Therefore, in my opinion, there never was a void, but rather, the exact opposite. In intelligent infinity is everything that could possibly be. I am reminded of a quote by Michelangelo when he was sculpting the statue of David. He said something to the effect of, "Every block of stone has a statue inside it and it is the task of the sculptor to discover it."

You see, he didn't create the statue, so much as he merely revealed what was already there. Similarly, everything we perceive as creation is only manifest in such and such a way because our awareness of the rest of infinity has been temporarily filtered or limited so that the illusion appears as it does. But make no mistake, infinity is all encompassing. The finite is contained with the infinite. The tangible is contained within the intangible. When infinity became "aware", it actually was a limitation upon that infinity. Not limitation in a negative sense, as limits are actually necessary in order to empower creativity, but rather, a refinement of the plenum of infinity -- what Ra calls the "original thought".

Thus, the creation is more akin to a chalkboard that is completely covered in chalk. And creation is like taking an eraser and erasing everything you don't want to be part of your "illusion". All refinements on this infinity are the narrowing of focus to certain specific attributes.

Quote:51.10 Questioner: Immediately after the death of the physical body, the— you have stated that the, the… I believe I’m correct in saying that, primary activated body is the indigo, and you stated it— that it is the form-maker. Why is this so? Can you answer that?

Ra: I am Ra. This will be the last full query of this session of working.

The indigo body may be seen to be an analog for intelligent energy. It is, in microcosm, the Logos. The intelligent energy of the mind/body/spirit complex totality draws its existence from intelligent infinity or the Creator. This Creator is to be understood, both in macrocosm and microcosm, to have, as we have said, two natures: the unpotentiated infinity which is intelligent; this is all that there is.

Free will has potentiated, both the Creator of us all and our selves as co-Creators with intelligent infinity which has will. This will may be drawn upon by the indigo or form-making body and its wisdom used to then choose the appropriate locus and type of experience which this co-Creator or sub-sub-Logos you call so carelessly a person will take.

I take this quote to imply that consciousness had free will, before it ever had an objectified "self". Free will took consciousness to focus into a "self" which is the Logos.

Everything eventually returns to the plenum (in reality it never left). The plenum is the octave density. Ra calls it alpha and omega. It is changeless and eternal. All change is contained within this changeless infinity. Infinite change exists within the container of this plenum of infinity.

It is illusory change, however.

All that is is *Existence*. This is the only reality. I've always seen consciousness as a form of light. It "illuminates" existence. Without it, nothing could be "seen". I often describe consciousness as "clear light" because of this. This is more than just semantics. All other forms of light are the result of this clear light energy lowering its vibration until it manifests as all the things we are familiar with.

The beginning of "duality" or "polarity" or "separation" is when an opposite to existence is imagined, through the potentiation of free will. This "imaginary" nothingness gives rise to the illusion of separation, that something can be apart from infinite unity. This is the potentiation of the path of "that which is not".

Existence is light, and nonexistence is darkness, metaphysically speaking. But realize that light is the truth, and darkness is the lie. Nothingness cannot actually exist, except in illusion. Separation cannot actually exist, except in illusion.

There is only truth in existence, and the resistance to truth in the concept of "nothingness". When you let go of your tenacious hold on illusion, you are naturally filled with the light of the one infinite creator, which dissolves all illusions.

Darkness is the absence of light. If light is present, darkness cannot be.

RE: How does Infinity simply 'become' aware.




Although I would be more in line with Anagogy's speculation in the post immediately above, I would add that all that is possible is more than infinity, it is also the manifestation of will imposed upon it as a force able to act infinitely.

In other words anagogy's viewpoint if often used to support the notion that creation is complete and that all that will be is already finished.

i do not hold to that premise and think that the future is still being created.

RE: How does Infinity simply 'become' aware.
Shin'Ar,

Much that is in this thread is way too complex (dare I say convoluted?) for me to even attempt to understand what the writer meant.

However, replying to part of your comment, I don't like to think the future is fixed.

In my perspective "NOW" is all that exists. "NOW" (in my construct) is perpetually creating itself.

Don't ask me how the past and history fit into that - I'm waiting for some inspiration on that part of it.

Hang on tight to that thinking Cayce, because there are many that will tell you that Infinity is a compilation of all possibility.

I agree with you in this matter.

Okay, my interpretation is that infinity, containing ALL possibilities, must be aware as this is one of one the infinite possibilities. So its not that infinity became aware and so on but instead infinity being infinity already had awareness.

From a 'time line' perspective it would go awareness and then focusing into the One Infinite Creator. Meaning that this awareness in infinity and the One Infinite Creator have always really existed in a simultaneous manner right?

To my opinion Infinity contains all Intelligent possibilities. As causal, Takes an intelligent design. Its not about random possibilities but Intelligently designed ones. It became aware of what the core or creative principal of all possibilities would be.

Without Unity, Infinity has no reference or meaning.
