Brahman, Quantum Mechanics, and Global Events – Part Two

Man Mo Temple interior, Hong Kong

As a follow up to my first post on this subject, a new article emerged from my news feed, complimenting and expanding on the reality of classical and Quantum Mechanical physics operating alongside one another.

This second article explores the ramifications of the density of events calculated in the first (10 to the power of 120, per cubic cm.), while introducing consciousness, or cosmic mind, as the substrate on which such a reality is based.

Such a mind as explained in the article need not have a recognizable or identifiable body to go with it, as the ‘cosmic thinking’, so to speak, is described as a series of events consistent with any observed object, consciousness being all pervasive.

This has profound implications even in daily life, for it graciously explains why we experience both the classic material physics of our objective world (for example, if we observe an oak tree, we can reasonably assume someone else will also observe that same oak tree, describing similar characteristics), while also accounting through Quantum Mechanics for a unique subjective view of the oak tree, and different thoughts about it, for each observer.

From Scientific American, ‘Coming to Grips with the Implications of Quantum Mechanics’, by Bernardo Kastrup, Henry P. Stapp, and Menas C. Kafatos:

…Our view is entirely naturalistic: the mind that underlies the world is a transpersonal mind behaving according to natural laws. It comprises but far transcends any individual psyche.

The claim is thus that the dynamics of all inanimate matter in the universe correspond to transpersonal mentation, just as an individual’s brain activity—which is also made of matter—corresponds to personal mentation. This notion eliminates arbitrary discontinuities and provides the missing inner essence of the physical world: all matter—not only that in living brains—is the outer appearance of inner experience, different configurations of matter reflecting different patterns or modes of mental activity.

According to QM, the world exists only as a cloud of simultaneous, overlapping possibilities—technically called a “superposition”—until an observation brings one of these possibilities into focus in the form of definite objects and events. This transition is technically called a “measurement.” One of the keys to our argument for a mental world is the contention that only conscious observers can perform measurements.”

The excerpt above strongly supports the idea that raising global consciousness is simply a matter of conscious experience manifesting through attention. The key is knowing what to put our attention on, which runs into the maxim:

Knowledge is different, in different states of consciousness.” (Maharishi Mahesh Yogi). However the problem is not a problem, by elevating personal consciousness and its expression to Totality, Brahman.

This accomplishes two things – First, Totality is available, all knowledge, optimal solutions, and second, this raises the vision to one of cosmic life, so that dynamics not apparent to a more limited view can be fully exploited, again leading to elegant yet unforeseen solutions. So the attention must be on cosmic life, which can only be seen from the vantage of Brahman.

Thankfully, two unparalleled proponents of Brahman, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, and His teacher, Sri Brahmananda Saraswati, were recently here, and left behind the keys to the Kingdom. No worries, we are in good hands.

it shows up in the pictures...I am a US citizen (born in California), though spent my childhood through high school living primarily in SE Asia, giving me a deep view of both East and West. I began TM at 21 and the TM-Sidhis at 26. I was visited by Guru Dev at 39. The rest is history. :-)
