Thought I might make it a little easier.
Leon, you refer to SPACE are you referring to dark matter or dark energy?
Big Bang = a new manvantara?
While in Pralaya the godhead, consciously, sub-consciously or un-consciously desires or wills to manifest itself.
From a dimensionless state the godhead produces (10) planes of existence as it involutes. From fine to gross. From vibrations on the higher planes to atoms on the lower planes. I understand that it is not linear in terms of planes but I use it as linear to be able to comprehend the idea. In so doing, godhead, differentiates into a zero point of consciousness in the planes it has just or self-created?
(Third fractal involution? Is that because it is part of the higher triad that is beyond our comprehension?
So are we talking about a point of consciousness on every plane or are you saying that, e.g. if looking at it as if it was a ringed tunnel the various rings representing the various planes then one can see that this zero point of consciousness will be at the centre of all planes, emanating from this key central point of consciousness. Of course this tunnel has no sides, it is immeasurable space, it is to our way of thinking ? eternity and eternal boundlessness or infinite consciousness with a zero point at the centre of the circle. Here I think HPB brings in coadunate but not consubstantial?
So thinking of myself, my consciousness in part and parcel of the great zero point. I manifest this point through the ?matter? of the physical plane, which gives me my visual and aural perceptive consciousness. And like the godhead, my point of consciousness emanates from a centre and travels outward through my auras which may be composed of strings or qualia which carries this consciousness.
Every organ, every muscle, every anything physical has a ?consciousness? or ?intelligence? which accounts for sentient existence, as we know it.
When you say fractally involved co-energetic fields are you referring to a continuous circular outward movement through the various co-energetic fields (or planes) as in my tunnel analogy?
Is Qualia ? strings of consciousness
It all depends on what you mean by consciousness. Are you talking about
pure perceptive awareness and willful intent that we experience when awake or
while dreaming? Or, do mean the sense of self as separate from all other
beings? Or, do you mean the opposite of unconscious, knocked out, drugged, or
If the first -- in my view, potential consciousness along with potential
matter is a fundamental aspect of absolute or ground SPACE that is the primal base
of all phenomenal existence. Therefore, upon initial manifestation of the
cosmos from the "singularity" of Absolute SPACE at the moment of the big bang
-- which its awakened "will" initiates -- consciousness arises simultaneously
and codependent with the initial fractally involved fields of matter as the
universe continues to fractally involve and spherically inflate. After full
inflation and breaking of symmetry of the physical plane at the third fractal
involution, the zero-point centers of consciousness become spread everywhere in
the Planck vacuum at the zero-point energy field centers and poles of all
fundamental particles, as well as all the atoms, molecules, cells, and organisms
they are parts of. Thus, consciousness is spread everywhere throughout the
entire universe within all matter that, essentially, is nothing more than
absolute dimensionless ground space in various modes of vibratory motion.
This is the source of the visual and aural perceptive consciousness located
in the exact center of our head, and the self consciousness that apparently is
located at the center of the body aura fields in the naval chakra. It also
accounts for all the cellular consciousness throughout the body at the
zero-point centers of their analogous fractally involved coenergetic fields -- which
accounts for remotely localized touch on the skin, smell in the nose, taste on
the tongue, pain in a stubbed toe or pin prick on a finger tip, etc.
In this view, all sentient beings have the same type of perceptive
consciousness (awareness, will, qualia, etc.) as us humans... Although, in many cases,
far more sensitive. I'm also pretty sure that many animals are not only self
conscious but can think causatively, and subconsciously calculate graphically
and holistically from both instinctive and conditioned (learned) memory.
Therefore, they have logical minds, although below the level of conscious
rationality. How else would a lion recognize its own pride, and be able to hunt
selective prey with calculated discrimination and anticipatory tactics -- far
better, in some cases, than a human can. (Although they can't play the same
