Easter Bunny, Karmic Burden, What Happens in Vegas and Being Alone

“When sitting alone with the mind we are sitting alone with the universe. When alone we cannot deny that everything that we are experiencing is only something that we will experience. This is something absolutely unique that will never be repeated again.”

I say some good stuff some times. You just have to weed through the crap.

Yesterday in the car the kids were talking about going swimming on Sunday.  My oldest said that a lot of people go to church on Sunday, and my wife said that Catholics go on Saturday night for mass.  He then asks what is a Catholic, to which my wife replies “it is a form of religion”.   And then what is religion, and she says it is what you believe.  He doesn’t miss a beat and says “Well I believe in Santa, and the Easter Bunny.”   And it go me thinking, why isn’t there a church for Santa and the Easter Bunny?  We place them on such pedestals during the holidays and we encourage children to believe in them.  It is funny that there isn’t a full blow church dedicated to this.  Then I thought about our shopping malls.  The trees we erect, the rituals that we go through…

Fractals and Imagining Higher Dimensions

A few thoughts added to this post tonight.

How do you move in the 5th dimension? How do you fold the fifth dimension and overcome logical impossibilities
It would have to first come as realization of the 5th dimensional self
And first as realization of the 4th dimensional self within the 5th dimension
Realization that we are moving constantly through a series of possibilities and choosing which one
Which experience to have
Which action to take
It is all a series of choices
But the realization is that there is no choice
It is all the same
All choices represent all possibilities based upon a specific lineage
A specific linking
A causality
The causality is the folding of the 4th dimension
The 4th dimension we experience is now without choices
It exists until the next choice and the next folding
The 5th dimension is the movement of the choices that caused the collapse of the 4th dimension
Where a 4th dimension object may represent the collapse of one causality
The 5th dimension represents the collapse of all causalities of all causalities
At the planck length quantum laws apply
Existing as everything until observed
The universe is made out of these things that are infinitesimally small that represent all possibilities

If we are a simulation, then we must be a recursive function, a fractal.  With each iteration, the fractal animates.  The iterations extend forward and backwards through infinity.  A given iteration in the fractal represents a specific point in time, the collapsed state of everything.  Every unique particle existing in a specified state to form matter, light, reality.  Each step represents a quantum frame of information, and the movement of the steps flips through the frames and animates reality.

In mathematicsiterated function systems or IFSs are a method of constructing fractals; the resulting constructions are always self-similar.

IFS fractals, as they are normally called, can be of any number of dimensions, but are commonly computed and drawn in 2D. The fractal is made up of the union of several copies of itself, each copy being transformed by a function (hence “function system”). The canonical example…

Stop Thinking Yourself Out of Life

Thinking is the recycling of data that you have already gathered. – Sadhguru


Are there certain events that have defined the world?  Is anything more important than the rest?  It feels like there are specific things in history that led to the world we are in today.  Now a lot of other little moments caused that larger event, but the accumulation of that event, either immediate or disbursed, connected to like events of importance to define the world now.

self development
community/civic duty

These ports of of our lives are made by distinct and connected events. If those events were different then all those aspects of life would be different. 

His Master’s Voice

That masters voice, is that the voice of the sentient being of which we are a part?  I can see how religion is appealing to hear that common voice.  But why does it not extend across religious boundaries?  Why are there divides?  If we are all part of the same master being, then why would we think other people hear a different voice than us?  Their interpretation of the voice may be different, but how can the master be different?


The desire for permanence is the cause of human suffering

Fear begins and ends with the desire to be secure; inward and outward security, with the desire to be certain, to have permanency. The continuity of permanence is sought in every direction, in virtue, in relationship, in action, in experience, in knowledge, in outward and inward things. To find security and be secure is the everlasting cry. It is this insistent demand that breeds fear.



Know which influences to listen to and which to block.

Train your mind. According to the much publicized but nevertheless baffling concept of the law of attraction, an individual can create his own destiny by becoming a powerful magnet. Whatever you set your mind to, you have the power to attract it.

Why is it that we can remember some things some of the time, but not all things all of the time?  Why is memory selective to the situation and the frame of mind?  Why does doing certain things trigger certain memories?  Why are those memories chosen over others?

Sometimes the memories bring pleasure, and we cherish those over the ones that bring us pain.  Still, we remember the ones that bring us pain.

One memory…  one moment… triggering the next one.

What was the first one?  And how could there ever be a first one?
