Thanks Leon for your time in responding to my questions.  It must be frustrating for you having to repeat yourself but one of these days, I will get it, the penny will drop, and I hope to have that real Ah Ah moment.  The mental techtonic plates are slowly inching together, not at the speed I would like, but nevertheless, every repitition is an inching forward!  I will ponder your response over the next few days as my assimilation filtration system, has the speed of a herd of turtles.

Leon: What makes the rock appear solid is the strong electrical 
fields that hold its particle together. These fields repel the 
fields that comprise our organic body, so we *feel* them as being 
solid. The consciousness of the rock is only potential -- since 
here are no organic senses and neural mechanisms to detect or feel 
anything. Only living beings composed of organic matter can sense 
and consciously experience the surrounding environment.

Leon: Yes. That something is the fractally involved zero-point 
energy fields in the so called, "Planck vacuum" between the quantum 
particles that are analogous with the initial highest order spiritual 
fields of cosmogenesis, as well as the higher order "coadunate but 
not consubstantial" fields of consciousness that penetrate and 
surround each material form or organism. In the human these fields 
contain the Chi energy fields of chinese medicine and martial arts -- 
which are analogously replicated in every cell... Some of which 
carry the Prana or vital energy http://users. er/

Leon: The only aspect of overall reality that could be considered as 
Parabrahm, Brahma, or "God" is the "spinergy" (abstract motion or 
angular momentum) of the ubiquitous zero-point source of all energy 
fields, that is also the center of all non local consciousness. This 
point is analogous to the "singularity" (out of which the entire 
universe emanates) of omnipresent, omniscient and omnipotent Absolute 
SPACE -- that we might call the near infinite, unborn Brahma resting 
in the infinite bosom of Parabrahm.

Leon: Yes... God is reflected in every zero-point of consciousness 
everywhere. The original G-force that impelled the universe to 
expand and reform into the Cosmos that eventually evolves into the 
Solar system and us human beings, must eventually run down due to the 
continuous loss of energy through what we can only call the 
"friction" of its moving parts. This is called "entropy," and when 
all energy is dissipated, all physical forms and particles resolve 
back into their ubiquitous zero-points of origin... That, being of 
the same Absolute SPACE, merges back into the original cosmic 
singularity -- to rest in Pralaya until the next cycle of 
Manvantara. This process occurs analogously on the solar plane as it 
does much later on the galactic plane, and even later on the Cosmic 
plane. Thus, there are all sorts of Pralayas and Manvantaras.

Leon: Actually, it's a good analogy to explain apparent "action at a 
distance" -- like gravity -- which does not require any information 
to pass between the two objects attracted to each other. Consider 
the two cameras as being two people looking at the same fish from 
different points of view and experiencing it at the same zero-point 
of universal consciousness at the zero-point in the center of their 
respective heads -- which, being of the same absolute space, are 
entangled with each other. This is how the apparent "action at a 
distance" between split particles actually works, and also the way 
telepathy might work between two Masters who know how to merge their 
higher consciousness. ... Since, the zero-point centers of any split 
particle field are actually in the same absolute SPACE. That's 
equivalent to the theosophical saying, "The self of one is the Self 
of all."

Leon: The conscious will of the zero-point "singularity" of primal 
SPACE that "projected" the first cosmic energy ray that formed the 
initial fractal involved spherical fields of cosmogenesis. This 
"projection" continues on the physical plane with the analogous ZPE 
fields in the Planck space that generates and energizes all the 
fundamental particles, etc. See: http://users. ts/

Leon: Sure. But, since the projector is built into the projection, 
you'd have a hard time separating them. ;-) Therefore, there cannot 
be a separate "god" that isn't governed by the same fundamental laws 
of cycles that govern everything in the universe. All that the 
visible universe can be is a projection of itself that is compressed 
as encoded holographic interference patterns in the G-force spinergy 
of the primal singularity. Thus, god is in everything and everything 
is in god. Thus, the universe, and all its apparently separate 
parts, is actually one interconnected unity, or infinitely 
holographic expanded "singularity" -- with all its information 
compacted in every zero-point's infinite spinergy. This is the 
Akasha -- which is everywhere.

Leon: Yes. There is apparent location in the phenomenal universe -- 
since, after emanation, the projected metric 3-D space is spherical 
and therefore has a 2 dimensional surface on which holographic 3-D 
images can form -- which, on the fourth lowest physical sphere are 
the stars and galaxies of our visible cosmos, along with ourselves. 
Thus, all 'forms' have location -- while consciousness, being 
everywhere in the same absolute SPACE, is nonlocal... Although it 
appears to be localized when we move our body from one place to 
another, or feel a pain in our toe from kicking a rock. ;-)

Leon: Bohm was a theosophist and, therefore, a Platonist. So his 
entire holographic paradigm theory is identical to the metaphysics in 
the Secret Doctrine -- which I have pictured symbolically and 
scientifically in the ABC model. As for mindfulness. .. Remember that 
the original spinergy contains all the experiential knowledge gained 
by the Universe throughout all its manvantaras. .. Just as your zero- 
point "spinergy" contains all the intelligence gathered by you in 
previous lives. Thus, when you manifests in time at your 'primal 
beginning', as a human being, your mind fields, containing all memory 
of all previous evolutionary experience, comes with you. And, that 
mind is not lost when you rest in Devachan between lives. Thus, the 
hologram is everywhere.. . Just like the DNA replicates in every cell 
of every sentient being, and carries with it the memory of all 
previous forms... As evidenced by the fetus passing through all 
previous evolutionary stages as it grows from the zygote to the baby.

Leon: That is true. The projector is your willful intent activated 
by your center of Self consciousness that, in turn, activates the G- 
force of the surrounding "spinergy". This "projected" coherent 
(laser like) energy field reconstructs the holographic wave 
interference patterns in the fields of mind and memory that was 
processed and resonantly transfered to them by the brain's neurology. 
The reflection of this ray returns to the zero-point center of self 
consciousness with the sensory or memory information we perceive 
(experience as color, tint, shade, taste, sound, smell, touch, 
etc.). The one thing missing from Bohm's holographic paradigm, is 
the obvious connection with consciousness, since there is no way of 
verifying its non-locality at the ubiquitous zero-points of 
fundamental SPACE by objective scientific means... Although the 
substantial holographic nature of our physical chemical structure can 
be demonstrated through the DNA code that is replicated in every cell 
-- yet produces a different protein depending on its holographic 
position in the 3-D body model field in both the astral and physical 
plane. This could only be explained by holography coupled with phase 
conjugate adaptive resonance between the twin fields. Check out this 
article by Ed Mitchell, the moon astronaut... As HPB predicted, 
modern science is getting closer and closer to verifying ALL the 
theosophical teachings. http://www.edmitche llapollo14. com/

Leon: Yes. But, we must remember that the hologram is everywhere. 
So, every zero-point center of consciousness in the body is entangled 
with our center of individual consciousness. Thus, we can feel the 
itch on our backside and automatically reach out and scratch it 
without any attentive thought. As for the etheric... Those 
holographic fields of memory and mind that carry the thought images 
are also reflected everywhere throughout the body hologram, and their 
images, or "information of consciousness" they carry, are also 
holographic. Healing occurs when the harmonious image of a healthy 
organ generated by the higher center of self consciousness, is 
superimposed on the disharmonious unhealthy images caused by a 
breakdown in the antibody system, or the cells themselves due to 
various causes, not only negative thoughts and desires. Thus the 
placebo effect occurs when we believe we are being healed by what is 
only a pill made of plain starch. our subconscious creates the 
visualization of health that reflects on and realigns the diseased 
fields. Deep vipassana meditation can do the same thing. All of 
that, however, depends on the holographic nature of everything.

Leon: Perhaps, this is the secret that none of the adept magicians, 
like Apollonius, didn't want to reveal to other magicians -- but that 
HPB tried to teach us how to find out for ourselves... . So that we 
could spread broadcast it, along with the right motives, to enough 
people -- so as to begin to act together to change the present world 
reality toward a more benign and beneficent condition. 
Unfortunately, the powers of evil (military industrial complex) that 
govern the present world, know all about those means to control minds 
through the mass media, religion, entertainment distraction, etc. 
So, all we can really do is continue to heal ourselves and whichever 
others we can reach, and wait until there are enough of us together 
to begin putting our minds in alignment with the proper 
visualizations to start changing the world.

I'm not too confident that will happen, though, before nature 
responds to our pollution (ecologically, military weaponry, over 
populationally, etc.;-) and the whole house of cards comes tumbling 
down... And some new theosophically minded leaders spring up out of 
the remnants of world population groups to wake everybody up.
