Chapter 5 – The Infinitum

The mind is our most intimate link to the infinitum, for it is nearly infinite and directly connected to the source of all that is. To know thyself is to know God. To try to know God, without first knowing thyself is an exercise in futility and for some, ends poorly. Even if you could meet your Creator directly without performing this first step in your personal evolution, the meeting would be brief; you would likely be frightened literally to death. We are here for a reason, and our Creators have deliberately concealed themselves that you may experience this life independently without obvious interference. This can both be viewed as a gift and a curse, a test and a game. By all means, do search, for it is this journey to the path you will undergo which is the archetype of all such adventure stories. The Wizard of OZ, Starwars, Beauty and the Beast, and Aladdin are some recent adaptations of biblical, and philosophical allegories that are as old as time itself. The journey depicted in the ancient allegories is the beginning of your conversation with your Creators. First of all, you must begin to learn what life is really about. Then you must answer some questions, and take an extensive multiple-choice test. If all goes well, you will be directed to a path that will ultimately lead you into a direct interaction with your Creators within your lifetime. If all does not go well, we are redirected back to the point in the journey where it went wrong, and we will repeat that part. If it all goes really wrong, then we are led down a different path, and it’s not our Creators who await those of us who find themselves there. This note is relevant at this junction in the story because, what resides in the infinitum is all that does not reside in the physical plane. You will not find a huge disorderly mountain of things there. There are no physical things there, just beings, intangible creations and information.

The moment you step into the infinitum with your gum boots and flashlights and attempt to conceive the inconceivable, you will have Their full attention. And the guards will say to the Master, “Sire, another one approaches” The moment I personally experienced this state of awareness and found myself in the company of substantially higher beings, I realized why this upper band of the electromagnetic spectrum is called zero-point. Because if you ever get close enough in your mind to grasp what it actually is, or see what is there, you will realize simultaneously that there is zero point to studying this field or beyond it from the physical plane of existence, for we as humans will never be allowed to bring such technology here, it is transcendence. If we could bring this technology here, one of two things would happen. We would either do what Einstein did, and deliver it into the hands of evil men who would proceed to destroy all of creation, not just our own world and solar system, or we would escape the confines of this sandbox which has been carefully crafted for our species to evolve. If we as un-enlightened beings traveled all of space, we would infect every other sentient species in the physical universe with the same affections that plague our own minds and our world. Not to mention the fact that we would strip mine and fight over every single world that couldn’t defend itself against us. It is quite presumptuous and preposterous to even believe for a moment that we have the right to leave this place. In fact, you could say there would be zero point to it. As we awaken to a higher level of comprehension, some of these understandings are common, and self-evident. Each of us will find ourselves directly in the presence of the infinitum, whether we intend to or not, it is awaiting us at the end of our time here, each time. I would suggest it is prudent to learn about it in advance of this, and have a rudimentary knowledge of what is at play in our universe if we want to continue to be a part of it after this physical experience releases us from its grip, and gravity no longer has an effect upon us.

The idea of the infinitum is not new. The best, oldest and most famous depiction of the infinitum I think we have is a work by Plato, pupil of Socrates. In his work called the Allegory of the Cave, Plato describes a scenario using a form of writing called an allegory. He uses Socrates and another man to whom Socrates is speaking to depict a conversation between them. During the conversation that ensues, Plato describes this realm in which we find our selves with metaphors that depict the time / space continuum. As you may have guessed, he calls this place the cave. Today, in all my research on this allegory, I have yet to actually find a simple artist’s rendition that faithfully depicts the simple scenario as it is told.

The basic scenario is as follows; there are a group of beings in a cave, and they have all been chained tightly to a rock in the center of the cave, unable to shift their gaze from the wall in front of them, and they are unable to move their heads even a little in order to be able to see anything else, including themselves, or each other. Outside this cave is a great light. Let’s think of it with multi-context line of reasoning. Scenario 1) If this cave were located on earth, this great light outside of it would be the sun. Scenario 2) If this cave we are describing is not on earth, but a metaphor for the entire physical universe, and if the Infinitum were outside the mouth of this cave, then the great light would instead be what we understand as the source of all creation. There are beings described in this allegory that are free to move around outside of the cave normally. As they pass the mouth of the cave in their daily life routines, they are either completely unconcerned or unaware of the cave or of its contents. Each time they pass between the source of the light and the mouth of the cave, they cast a shadow upon the back wall of the cave in front of the prisoners, and it is these shadows that are perplexing the occupants of this so-called cave. Depending upon their shape, speed, or what they may be carrying, each shadow cast upon this wall is different.

 The occupants of this cave were born there, and chained from the moment of birth into the position in which they now find themselves. Since there is nothing else to do, and they can still hear each other, they make a game of guessing which shadow comes next. They have been there long enough to know that the shadows repeat, and they have given names to the different forms that they have observed repeatedly. The cave dweller who can guess the next shadow with the most accuracy is held in the highest esteem. They don’t know what these shadows are, and they believe that this is all there is to life, and the universe. One day, one of them gets loose from his bonds, and is for the first time able to look around. He sees himself, and he sees the others. He sees and immediately realizes, he has been a prisoner all of his life, and the others are also prisoners too. As this escapee ventures upon weak legs he has never used before, or knew he had, he heads for the mouth of the cave to see what is outside. When he approaches the mouth of the cave, he is dazzled by the colors, which he had never before been aware of, having only ever seen shadows thus far.

The brightness hurts his eyes, and the beings are frightening to him. He is immediately disoriented. Eventually however, he gains the confidence to leave the cave, and begins to experience life outside of the cave. Eventually he remembers his compatriots that are still trapped and confined in the cave and decides he must return to try to free them. So he goes back to the cave and begins to explain what he has learned in the “real” world to the prisoners. However, as he re-enters the cave, he is a little disoriented, and he cannot see very well in the darkness any longer since his eyes have now adjusted to the light in the real world. As he tries to explain what he has discovered, the others sense his disorientation. As he continues, he describes the shadows to them, and what they really are. When he tries to play the guessing game, and proceeds to guess incorrectly the order each shadow will appear, he finds his eyesight is not able to recognize the shapes and he is no longer able to play their game very well any longer. They are all greatly disturbed by this. Their consensus is that he has gone mad, and they should kill him because the things he says frightens them and threatens their game.

Plato wrote this allegory about 2400 years ago. This scenario has since been used time and time again by authors and play writes to some degree ever since. This is still taught in most first world schools still today, yet somehow, the simple meaning seems to escape us. Of the 2 scenarios that were presented earlier, it is the latter of course that is the true context of this 2400-year-old allegory. People generally don’t see the real world, and they wouldn’t want to even if they were presented with a choice and evidence. There are currently three groups of people here; 1) those who are chained to the wall, unaware. Group 2) those who are aware of what is happening, yet they are trying to convince group 1 that their happiness is just a purchase away, and group 3) those who are trying to lead group one into the light of awareness.

In today’s terminology, the cave is the physical universe, or the entire electromagnetic spectrum and everything within it. The rock they are chained to is the earth. The wall reflecting the shadows is the visible band of the EM spectrum. The shadows are everything happening around us in our daily life, weather, stock market, news etc. The chains holding them are their beliefs. The mouth of the cave is the third eye, or the portal to the next realm. Outside of the cave, if we care to venture there, we find the Infinitum and all of its inhabitants going about whatever it is they are doing in that realm. The source of the light is what we call the void. Some might argue, if they could in fact see how the entire electromagnetic spectrum was brought forth by a cosmic / Divine stone being cast into the cosmic void, that it would be this stone or perhaps the zero-point band of this spectrum that would be the source of the light outside of the cave.

I think, mankind has not yet recognized this emanation (the EM spectrum) is merely a ripple in the pool of what we consider the void, which is not actually empty yet. Neither science nor modern philosophy seems to indicate their awareness of this particular principle yet. The consensus with the philosopher’s is that this light is simply God. Perhaps the Philosopher’s stone is a metaphor for the Divine stone, which is cast into the void many times per second thus creating the physical plane of existence. It’s quite feasible that the highest Creator is neither the stone, nor the void, nor the EM Spectrum, but even further back from this scenario. God is the hand that throws the cosmic stone into the void, and the void is within this Being. Our job here is not to fathom the unfathomable, the duality of truth, and the paradoxes that make up that particular equation would possibly tear the untrained human mind to pieces and lead to madness in many cases, just to behold it all for a moment. We must see first what has been clearly presented for us to find, and begin our journey there. We have been given the answers to many questions already and we must audit our beliefs and amend our habits and actions before we press for any more knowledge. We do not yet posses the mental faculties to conceive the inconceivable, but we may increase our personal awareness, and begin to know God as our Father, and friend personally. The next phase of our evolution is to establish this contact and maintain a true connection. We will yet travel the stars, but we will not be using this body to make that journey. We must first relearn how to communicate with one another, and recognize the significance of our language.
