Limits of an illusion

Time is a big illusion. There is no such thing. So is what we see or what we perceive through our senses. Because senses are limited, we have a limited understanding of the world viz. only that world which we are exposed to. There is a whole underlying reality which lies untouched beyond these fleeting experiences.

And that reality which is unmoving, limitless and incomprehensible is the truth or the Brahman as they call it in the Vedas. This is the same silence pervading the dance of the universe, beyond creation or annihilation. There is no darkness or light there, just peace and love, in abundance, a world beyond imagination.

Words are just metaphors for the truth. In the computer world also the binary part makes it work, but God exists in the place where the switch between a '1' and a '0' ('On' and 'Off') happens. How minute it is – indivisible beyond an atom, or a particle or a string. Hence he is everywhere – in places where the light does not reach, in the silence of the desert, in the depths of the oceans.

Remember the law, energy is neither created nor destroyed, but gets transferred from one form to another. This is an immutable law. How much energy does our universe or all that exists has is an absurd question. Because the answer is infinity and matter has limitations. Even a Deep Blue computer is limited by the number of FLOPS (Floating Point Operations) that it can perform. It gets better by the day, but will always be an approximation. Maybe we will settle for something near real in the future, because with the mind also, it has a creation and a finish time.

Hope that was not confusing.

Dear Rajesh,

Is this based on your knowing or personal experience when you say:-
"This is the same silence pervading the dance of the universe, beyond creation or annihilation. There is no darkness or light there, just peace and love, in abundance, a world beyond imagination."

Regards,
Kumar

One can only keep trying with an open mind as it is hard to believe or disbelieve without having a personal experience.
