Drawing a parallel from the Quantum mechanics of Science, where everything is defined as a wave function.
"When we are dealing with waves, we have a different rule. The superposition principle is one that is obeyed by all waves in material media and is rigorously obeyed by all electromagnetic waves and quantum waves. It says that the net wave amplitude or height at any point in space is equal to the algebraic sum of the heights of all of the contributing waves."
What this points to is that any single thought (and the action which may or may not result thereof), which "occurs",........... is the culmination of all thoughts ever taken, ................by any manifested biological computer, .............ever since phenomenon apparently came to be.
Hence is it not that the mosaic, the Totality which thinks or does, not the individual entity which believes it his or her thought or his or her action?
Ergo, the cause and effect, both are simultaneously existing and not sequential events in time.
The total picture already IS.
A very popular Tao saying, says exactly this.
"Pull a blade of grass and the whole Universe shakes".
So why is it that the apparatus of the "biological computer", this dreamed character , has a sense of "time", with a past that happened before, a present happening now and a future that will happen in time different to the before and the now?
Imagine a painting 10 miles high and 20 miles long.
The total painting already IS, but we can only see it frame to frame as much as our vision allows.
And hence traveling from frame to frame purely because of the limitation of our vision, a sense of time is born.
But this sense of time is purely conceptual arising out of the very "architecture" of the design of the biological computer.
As soon as a "metanoesis" occurs in some biological computer, which can only be acausal and non-volitional, and which we popularly call "awakening" or "enlightenment", the limitation is no more, the previous gestalt is no more, the two contextual constructs of time and space are no more.
For a sage or a Master, the whole picture is apperceived instantaneously.
The sage IS the Total Picture.
Now if cause and effect are not separate in the sense of "occurrences" in time, .........then what becoming is possible?
Today I am a miserable seeker, and doing the practice of meditation, breathing techniques, praying to Goddess for deliverance, or whatever, ....................in order that I will become an enlightened sage...........what becoming is possible .............in the context that cause and effect are both simultaneously existing, ............in the context that the whole Picture all ready IS.
Ishq'allah mahbud lillah.... God is Love, Lover, and Beloved...
The total picture all ready IS.
Doooobeee Doooooooooobeeee Dooooooooooooooo.
