(ORDO NEWS) — In one of the ancient Puranic stories, Shiva says: “Adyashakti (Primordial Energy) is incomplete without me, and without it I am like a corpse.”
Shiva also goes by many other names: Paratpara Shiva (Beyond Attributes – Gunas), Ardhanareshwar (Half Man, Half Woman), Sarvavyapi (He is Everywhere), Antartyami (Inner Witness) and Trikaldarshi (Omniscient).
After a decade of research into unraveling the meaning of nothingness and the nature of ultimate reality, which included talking to top physicists including Stephen Hawking and John Wheeler, Amanda Gefter published her findings in Einstein’s Lawn Offense, concluding that in the end nothing is real.
That is, on one side of the energy phase of the big bang event is the ever-expanding Universe, and on the other – absolute nothingness, emptiness.
Over the years, theoretical physicists have developed a number of theories, such as relativity theory, quantum field theory, string theory, loop quantum gravity, twistor theory, and constructor theory, but none of them can explain creation, that is, how nothing can turn into something, the energy phase of the big bang event.
Any theory of creation must necessarily assume that it has an a priori existence, and therein lies the mystery. Such a theory would be a logical contradiction, since it would have to explain its own creation out of nothing.
A theory is just another thing among things, and the creation of a theory out of nothing can never be explained if you have to assume that the theory exists before you can explain anything else. There cannot be a theory that explains the creation of everything if theory is one of those things.
Another problem faced by theoretical physicists is that the vast majority of them are unwilling to acknowledge the role of consciousness in creation.
The basic fact of existence is that everything that appears to exist exists only from the point of view of the observer who observes it. If the observer does not observe anything, then nothing exists from this point of view.
This simple fact of existence is not some weird metaphysical speculation. This is a common experience for every person. When you fall into deep sleep, everything disappears from existence from your own point of view and you perceive nothing. When you perceive nothing, nothing, from your point of view, exists.
Physicists complicate this basic fact of existence by calling it the problem of measurement, but the simple fact of existence is that an observer must observe something before something can appear to exist from that particular point of view.
The easiest way to explain creation is to start with the assumption that consciousness is that which exists before anything else is created and before anything is perceived.
The logical consequence of this assumption is that consciousness is what creates all things and perceives all things, but consciousness itself is not a thing.
If we start with this simple assumption, then we don’t really need a “theory of creation”. Instead, we only need a “mechanism of creation” that explains how consciousness, which is not itself a thing, is able to create all the things that it then perceives.
Theoretical physics has already discovered such a mechanism, which is called the holographic principle of quantum gravity.
The holographic principle is not a theory. It is a mechanism, and at the most fundamental level, it is a mechanism of creation. He explains how all things are created from a finite nothingness of consciousness that exists before anything is created, comes into being and is perceived.
To understand how this mechanism of creation works, we must start with the idea of an observer. The easiest way to understand an observer is through a point of view. An observer is a point of perceiving consciousness that arises in a point of view.
Where does the observer come from? We must assume that there is a more fundamental state of consciousness that exists before the appearance of the perceiving consciousness of the observer.
The existence of consciousness at the ultimate level of being is called emptiness. This ultimate level of existence is the ground level, which physicists call the vacuum state or earth, but it can also be called the ground of being.
The immutable nature of the void means that it is timeless and immovable. Its timeless nature implies eternity. Undivided nature implies unity. Its unlimited nature implies infinity.
From the point of view of the perception of things, emptiness is absolute non-existence, and therefore there is nothing to perceive in itself in it.
Emptiness is not only the potentiality of creating all things, but also the potentiality of perception of all things. The perceiving consciousness is the same potency of emptiness as the potency of emptiness to create perceived things.
“The universe may one day end, but consciousness will remain, for consciousness is eternal . ” H. E. Dalai Lama (Nobel Peace Prize, 1989).
If emptiness does not perceive anything, then how is the perception of things?
The key idea is to understand how the observer is created. The observer is the perceiving consciousness that arises from a point of view in the empty space of the potentiality of the void.
The void is also consciousness, but it is the ultimate nature of consciousness, while the perceiving consciousness of the observer is a derived state of consciousness. The ultimate nature of consciousness is undivided and unlimited, while the derivative state of consciousness is divided and limited.
In metaphorical terms, the void is like an indivisible and unrestricted motionless ocean of consciousness, and the observer’s point of view arises within this ocean.
The creation of the world that the observer perceives occurs only because the observer is moving relative to the motionless ocean.
In theoretical physics, this is called “an observer in an accelerated frame of reference”. The accelerated motion of the observer relative to the motionless ocean creates the appearance of the world. This is what the holographic principle describes.
The observer’s accelerated motion relative to the still void gives rise to the observer’s event horizon, which acts as its holographic screen. This accelerated motion is called an accelerated reference frame, within which the observer’s event horizon arises.
This horizon acts like a holographic screen as it encodes information for everything an observer can observe in their own holographic world. Everything observable in this world can be reduced to qubits of information encoded on this screen. This is the essence of the holographic principle.
As a result, the holographic principle is neither a theory of creation nor even a theory of consciousness. The holographic principle is the mechanism of creation. Consciousness uses this mechanism whenever a holographic world is created and perceived.
The first step in this creation is when the observer, a derived state of divided and limited perceiving consciousness, separates itself from the void, the ultimate nature of undivided and unlimited consciousness.
This point of perceiving consciousness of the observer arises in a point of view in the void. This point of view of the observer enters a state of accelerated motion relative to the motionless void.
In this accelerated frame of reference, the observer’s event horizon arises, which acts as his holographic screen as this bounding surface of space encodes qubits of information. This is how the holographic world of the observer arises.
Everything perceived is a form of information.
The observer perceives his own holographic world because the forms of information are projected as images from his own holographic screen onto his own point of view at the center of this world, and because these images are animated in the flow of energy arising from the energy of the observer’s own accelerated motion.
