TIME IS ETERNAL 4

Cosmos is the entire truth of existence and we can never know the fullness of this truth. Human intelligence is only a part, a tiny part, an insignificant part in the entire Cosmos. The Cosmos exists and can exist without human beings and without human intelligence. The axis of cosmic movement and change is not human existence. When human intelligence says that there was a cause that caused the material world to existence one must have the reason to think if human intelligence has the final authority on the cause and the caused. It accepts creation, that is, that human intelligence itself is caused. If it is caused then it cannot be the final authority on the cause. Only its imagination can lead to an assertion that it is central or even superior to the cosmos. By the limitation of being created, in its own saying, human intelligence cannot be the axis of the Cosmos as it was placed in the Cosmos at the point of creation. The Cosmos existed much before human intelligence was created. This is what the holy books of religions say and philosophers of religions have explicated. If human intelligence is the axis of the existence of the Cosmos it could not have come at a much later time in the life of the Cosmos. To be the axis of the existence of the Cosmos human intelligence should have been as old as the Cosmos itself. In our word, it should have existed without a beginning. But human intelligence, for all that we know of it does not accept this position.

It brings us to the question of what is Cosmos. It is not a collection of material world such as the planets as it is commonly projected and understood. Cosmos is the cumulative existence of everything all matter, visible and invisible. Human intelligence perceives and understands both but creates a dichotic existence of visible and invisible matter. Cosmos did not come into existence within any time frame. Cosmos is. Human intelligence often struggles with acknowledging its inability to comprehend this truth about Cosmos. It’s the height of its incompetence in communicative interaction. Competence in communicative interaction would mean being honest about truth and accepting it. Being incompetent in communicative interaction would mean an effort at camouflaging the truth and circumventing it to suit one’s hidden needs. I remember vaguely reading this in Noam Chomsky.

Cosmos is the cumulative essence of waves that keep the material planets in balance and keep moving all over space. The Cosmic waves existed eternally. They have no origin in time. Cosmos is not a person. It is the truth of existence and existence is an illusion just as truth is. Cosmos is neither a quantity nor a quality. It is all that can be, that is and that will be always. Cosmos has no boundaries. Like time, a boundary is something that is created by human intelligence. For example, it is the limitation of human intelligence that has artificially created boundaries on the earth dividing it into many nations. The earth itself is not made of nations and national boundaries. It is the incompetent communicative interaction of human beings that creates boundaries. Human intelligence has no right to define the Cosmos nor to explain it. We try to understand the many facets of the Cosmos only because of our limitations and not because of our intelligence.

Before we proceed to understand Cosmic movement and change through waves we need to expatiate the dichotomy in philosophers. They are human beings with all limitations of matter. In their inability to understand supra-terrestrial happening, philosophers created the existence of supernatural powers. It is a manifestation of their inability to understand and their incompetence in communicative interaction. Whatever they failed to understand, they pushed to the realm of the supernatural. The religionists or theologians joined them and explained it away as a super being, existing somewhere in the heavens who guides the destiny of the cosmos. We need to understand that there is no heaven in the cosmos. There can be no up or down in space. Human intelligence is made to look up towards heaven. For those living on earth, the other planets can be imagined to be up while they may actually be down. The truth is that they are neither up nor down. They are just in the cosmos, in space. It is the limitation of human intelligence to have created two worlds, namely, the material world and the spiritual world. We call this the dichotomy of philosophy. This is a glaring example of the incompetence in communicative interaction. Instead of dealing with the truth of the cosmos that is one, they created two worlds to suit their philosophical incompetence. The two worlds are often at loggerheads both philosophically and theologically.

Can there be a dichotomy of matter and spirit? There cannot be a spirit without matter. This is the truth and mystery of the cosmos that the spirit emanates from matter and needs matter for its evolution. Thought is said to be spiritual. In the dichotic view of the philosophers, thoughts can be either good or bad. Whatever they are thoughts do not belong to the realm of the matter according to them. They also strongly establish that brain is the seat of thought. That is why the origin of Brahmins is attributed to the head of Brahma where the brain is located. That is why Buddhism also says that knowledge is the ultimate nirvana of human beings. Let us ask a simple question. Can there be a thought or knowledge without the brain. While philosophers and theologians do not agree that there can be a thought without brain let me assert that thought and knowledge belong to the realm of the entire body and not only to the brain. The human knowledge that attributes knowledge and thought to the brain actually runs short of both. We need to explore in depth whether thought and knowledge, said to be non-material and invisible can exist without matter.
