The druid's diamond [reality map]
I have been thinking about the reality map in a similar context to the idea of the ‘druids diamond‘, I have no idea about the origins or if there is such a thing but that doesn’t matter, here I am taking the idea as I see it. Basically once the adherent is in an out of body state, they can turn in one direction and to another location [in a manner of speaking] and become someone else, then turn again and become an animal, or a bird, a plant, a lake, a planet, a star or to emptiness, so their reality is something like the sides of a diamond. I am just going to use this idea of transmigration to take a different look at how reality maybe…
The Rubik's cube reality map
Imagine each side of the cube is a fundamental aspect of reality, such that on each side you have;
Infinity; all and no sides. [is awareness?]
1. Time [I know we could see this as a dimension]
There are many more facets to the equation but to get the basic idea we will begin with these few. The basis is that each facet has a starting value of ‘0’ emptiness], it is only by one aspect interacting with another that they have a value and thence ‘exist’. To use an analogy if we look at an oscilloscope, then before we input a signal we have a straight line, then once added we have polarity and the line becomes a sine wave. The Rubik’s cube reality map is similar in that it is not [as like the straight line] until you rotate the sides that it ‘exists’ [as like the sine wave]. If we consider that dimensions would be meaningless with nothing existing to denote them or to facilitate their purpose, that energy could not exist without dimensions and time, and that none could exist without their archetypal designations ~ which in turn may not exist without representation.
We can then imagine that when all sides are not mixed or the cube has not yet been rotated, then each and every aspect are cancelled out. This leaves us at ‘statelessness’, the Rubik’s cube reality map is ‘present’ - let us say, but it does not ’exist’ ~ it has no definition nor shape. We could then imagine the whole thing in a continuum, as there is nothing else bar the map, then there is nothing to stop the sides from rotating and the universe becoming existent. For a timeless moment there would be no existence and then an universe would arise, each and every expression of universe would necessarily be looped as a cycle eventually returning to the original state.
The primary nature; Infinity or ceugant?
So what’s the pre-movement state of the cube-map; we could call it infinity as that has no x,y,z, axis and is incomparable with any of the facets in the particular, yet this would suggest the absolute, however the fundamental basis of this whole thing is that there are no absolutes! The cube is still ‘present’ within the pre-existent state and there is no duality betwixt that and the existent state, so this primary state cannot rightly be referred to as stateless nor infinity as absolute.
Infinity taken alone can only really be itself and may not have a reality map other than itself, so I would take it that it is a facet of the cube-map rather than the nature of the pre-existent variant. Really we need a term that as yet does not exist as far as I know, so I will take the French term ceugant [said with a soft ’g’] which approximately refers to the divine infinite* in the context of the original self or entity of existence.
I think this reality map may also be seen perhaps metaphorically on an individual level, for example; if we imagine the primal spark which fuses the cells [of an egg] into the foetus as like the turning of the sides on the cube, then immediately all facets of the life-form are incorporated in its form. With a human or other life forms you would have some manner of mind or consciousness imbued within is entity, but all aspects/facets of the equation make for an unique expression, where a human would grow to be conscious and thinking, a tree may have the very basic form of mind which may or may not be conscious as we would see it, and would certainly not think as we do [it possibly could have some manner of these things as like an animal or insect would, but I shall not get into that here].
*If we note that the ancient Celts probably thought of this as ’the source’ as similar to the native American Indian ’great spirit’ better described as ’great mystery’ [because it cannot be known]. They also probably had little concept of infinity at least as we would think of it today, except perhaps of that similar to the greek understanding. Really ceugant is not meant to be described and should thus be left ‘naked’ [once it is written it is lost] and thought of as pure spirit or mind.
