The Fractal Nature of Truth(Reality)
“The mystery of the universe is hierarchic in structure.
There are graded orders, one supervening upon the other.”
— Meher Baba
Like a Russian Nesting doll, which is an arrangement of wooden dolls, of decreasing sizes placed one inside the other, what if Reality itself is a cascade of fractals, one nested inside the other? If so, the assumption that we are dealing with only one doll, or one reality (as a singularity) would invariably lead to vast misunderstandingㄴ of the whole. Nothing prevent the discovery of truth, like false assumptions. Assumption, it is said, is the mother of all screw-ups. I myself unknowingly held this false assumption about reality for years. What broke the hold of ignorance, for me, is how often the Buddhist sutras mention lower and higher truths of varying levels. The Christian mystics also speak of varying levels of truth, or heavens. Even physics finds itself in a similar situation, confronted with deeper levels of reality nested beneath the surface of our apparent phenomenal reality. Even ‘time and space’ has long since gone under the chopping board, and is currently seen by most physicists to be nothing more than illusions.
Contradictions within the teachings of Meher Baba, as well as the Buddha and the Bible (just to mention a few) have baffled me for decades. It wasn’t until I was able to organize these ‘revealed truths’ into hierarchically ordered fractals that everything suddenly became crystal clear. The same applies to spiritual teachings from a variety of traditions, as well as the ‘discovered truths’ of modern science. Everything Baba says or teaches, once organized into it’s respective fractal, suddenly makes perfect sense with respect to the rest of his body of work. I realized that, unless we examine each ‘revealed truth’ in lieu of it’s fractal placement, we will never make any sense of the whole. Once these fractals are understood, all ‘revealed truths’, and spiritual teachings of all the Masters, can be seen to fit perfectly, each in its respective fractal, and thereby be assimilated coherently and rationally into one’s own world view. As Baba says:
“There is nothing irrational in true mysticism when it is, as it should be, a vision of Reality.”
— Meher Baba
Total coherence is the goal of any Truth seeker. The slightest amount of incoherence, is a sure sign that the whole theory is false. In other words, all it takes is one contradiction, or one anomaly, to know that the whole theory is bust. I realized that total coherence was not only impossible with Meher Baba’s ‘revealed truths’, but that the same was true of all spiritual traditions including Buddhism, Sufism, Taoism, as well as Christianity.
I’ve been checking the Fractal Nature of Truth for errors, for at least 5 years now, and have still yet to find a single contradiction. It is with love in my heart, that I wish to share this hypothesis with you. For me, this insight immediately began to organize every ‘revealed truth’ into a cascade of coherent fractals. The experience of all these ‘revealed truths’ coming together to form a cohesive whole, was not unlike watching footage of a building being demolished in reverse. Every ‘revealed truth’ not only had its perfect place, but could later be seen to be necessary. If a certain part of the building needed another column or even a window, it was as if Baba would, at some point, provide the exact right ‘revealed truth’ to fill that gap. Thus, like a large puzzle magically coming together to reveal a beautiful painting, each constituent ‘revealed truth’, as if it knew its exact place, would automatically go to where it belonged, and to my amazement, fit perfectly with it’s neighbors. The same can be said about all spiritual teachings of all traditions, both individually as well as collectively. In other words, I discovered that the Fractal Nature of Truth can accommodate, as well as account for all ‘revealed truths’ by all the Masters.
After digesting the Fractal Nature of Truth, if you read the Discourses, or the Buddhist scrips, you will begin to see these ‘revealed truths’ jump off the page and leap into their respective fractals. As this process begins to accelerate over time, (I am hoping) you will come to know exactly what I mean when I say ‘its like watching a building being demolished in reverse.” Enough of the sales pitch, and lets get into the Fractal Nature of Truth.
Note: The word Fractal was chosen for it’s cascading nature,
not its exact mathematical meaning; and because it sounds cool.
The Fractal Nature of Reality
“Being is not what it seems,
The world’s existence is not in the world.”
When Baba says that ‘its not that its not true that you are in the Universe, its just that it is more true that the universe is with in you’, he is informing us that Truth(Reality) itself has a Hierarchical Nature — that there are levels of higher Truths that supervene over lower ones. Baba once asked his disciples “what is an aspirant?” Dissatisfied with their various answers, he then stated “an Aspirant is someone who seeks the highest Truth.” This is because, only the highest Truth is really true; and if you are not seeking the highest Truth, he begs the question, are you really even seeking the Truth(or God)? Thus it became clear to me that nothing less than the highest Truth will do. To know the highest truth, we must first know what the lower truths are.
“Ignorance must be known as Ignorance, in order to know Knowledge.”
— Meher Baba (N & E, 224)
The hierarchical nature of reality can be divided into four distinct Fractals, (or nested dolls). Fractals 1 and 0 are of Reality and Fractals -1, and -2 are of Illusion. Each fractal is a ‘framework of thought, or paradigm; By itself a fractal constitutes a world view, a mental construct, or narrative of the world within which there can be no contradictions. Everything must make perfect sense within each fractal. However, when you fractal-up to a higher fractal nothing of the lower fractal remains. You cannot mix and match truths of one fractal with another without creating irresolvable contradictions. Each fractal stands alone as its own cohesive whole. In other words, everything inside each fractal jives perfectly with each other, but not with any other fractal (just like the individual nested dolls). However, higher fractals always overrule or supervene over lower fractals. This is because they are higher truths. Higher fractals paradoxically overrule and subsume lower fractals into falsities.
Paradox vs. Contradictions
In a Contradiction there are two equal and opposing premises.
In a Paradox one side always completely dominates over the other.
For two equal and opposing premises to coexist in one mind, requires ‘cognitive dissonance’. Cognitive dissonance is a fancy word for two contradicting facts coexisting in the same framework of thought, paradigm, or construct. This requires errors in reasoning. If two contradicting facts can coexist in one mind, what we have is an infected mind, a mind malfunctioning due to the presence of some combination of fallacies. Fallacies are ‘errors in reasoning’, not unlike a computer virus that causes errors in calculation. In my study of the various saints and sages over the years, I have notice how ultra-rational they always seemed to be. They must be rational, I thought, for good reason. Here’s why:
“There is nothing irrational in spirituality.” — Meher Baba
Unlike contradictions, paradoxes can cause awe in (only) sane minds. A sane mind is a properly functioning mind, a rational mind, with no errors in it’s thinking process, or in it’s reasoning. A paradox cannot baffle a mind that is comfortable with blatant contradictions coexisting in harmonious cognitive dissonance. Clarity of thought is a prerequisite for a paradox to baffle a mind. In fact, a rational mind cannot help but get rocked by a paradox, yet at the same time, it is naturally hostile towards contradictions.
Unlike contradictions, in a Paradox there is always what I like to call ‘an older brother,’ which is the higher Truth of the two. In a paradox one side always completely dominates and supervenes over the other. When baba says that ‘it is more true that the universe is within you’, he is telling us that this is a higher Truth than the lower truth of ‘you are in the universe.’ The higher Truth always annihilates the lower Truth, and turns it into nothing more than a Falsity. Higher truths invariably turn lower truths into lies, falsities, or total fictions. All lower truths are lies. To be polite Buddhism calls them “expedient means.” As you will soon see, all higher fractals of Reality(Truth) blow the lower fractals into oblivion, exposing them as nothing but complete unadulterated lies, i.e. expedient means.
Lets test this with a thought experiment. Which of these two premises, do you think, is the higher truth?
Fractal -2: My life, karma, and spiritual progress is of my doing, and thereby my responsibility.
Fractal -1: God is all, knows all, and does all; therefore God alone is responsible.
These two contradicting premises(or axioms) cannot coexist in the same world view. If they do, what we have is cognitive dissonance, or two contradicting premises, co-existing in the same paradigm. One of the two must be the higher truth, that supersedes the other. Ask your inner voice.
Ah, but you say I already saw which of the two out fractals the other.
Did you notice that you knew the answer the moment you read it. Like an instant thunder bolt, our hearts cannot help but tell us, which is the higher truth. Here is another example of two seemingly contradictory ‘revealed truths’ from Meher Baba:
Fractal -2: “Do not shirk your responsibilities.” — Meher Baba
Fractal -1: “Truly speaking, you are not responsible.” — Meher Baba
Ask your inner voice, which one of these two ‘revealed truths’ out-fractals the other.
Ah, but you already made up your mind, didn’t you? Isn’t it funny how, all of us know the same truth? This is because the Truth, in it’s entirety is already completed in us. The study of the inner-world is just as much a rigorous and empirical science as are the external sciences, and thereby requires no less than direct experiential verification. The Buddha would often give a teaching and then ask “what does your inside say?” Then Sariputra would answer with something like, “Yes, you are right, I can see (in me) exactly how, what you just said, cannot not be true.” Baba puts it this way:
“I am never silent. I speak eternally. The voice that is heard deep within the soul is My voice — the voice of inspiration, of intuition, of guidance. Through those who are receptive to this voice, I speak.” — Meher Baba
When we ask our inner voice, we are performing an empirical (and repeatable) experiment, and ascertaining direct experiential certainty through communion with this inner source of Truth.
So now that this is clear, lets get back to the Fractal nature of Truth. When Baba says ‘Truly speaking, you are not responsible.’ or when he says “Truly speaking, you do not have free will.” he is clearly letting us know that this ‘revealed truth’ is of a higher order. i.e. a higher fractal.
In this way, all ‘revealed truths’ from Fractal -1 out-fractal all ‘revealed truths’ of Fractal -2. As you can see, mere sight of a higher truth, is enough to instantly obliterate any truth of a lower order.
Lets try another thought experiment. Which of these two fractals (described below) do you think out-fractals the other?
Fractal -1: “God is all, knows all, and does all; but boy is that a lot of work. Good thing he has unlimited power. Sustaining all of existence is no easy task, and he works hard at it, because he loves us all. His goal is to save all of us from our ignorance, and he suffers under the burden of that task.”
Fractal 0: “Are you kidding me? God has no less than infinite power, infinite intelligence, motivated by infinite love. He is so infinitely capable that he could not have not finished it ALL — in less than a billionth of a nanosecond, leaving nothing undone — on a whim — exerting far less than negligible effort. He finished the salvation(God-realization) of all sentient beings so fast that he finished it the instant he started. That is why nothing is happening!”
What did the still small voice in you say, is the higher truth?
Is the God that you imagine still working hard? (on Fractal -2 or -1)
Or is He so almighty, he already done? (on Fractal 0)
As you can see, Fractal 0 paradoxically out-fractals Fractal -1 and instantly overrules it, in much the same way Fractal -1 did just earlier to Fractal -2. Mere sight of a higher truth, is enough to instantly, falsify any lower truth. This happens instantly and completely.
In this way, Reality itself is paradoxically divisible into 4 Fractals, hierarchically arranged in graded orders, each one supervening upon the other. To be more precise, only Fractal 1 and 0 can be said to be part of the REAL Reality. The other two, namely Fractal -1, and Fractal -2, describe the fractal nature of Illusion, or false Reality. This is why they are symbolically given negative numbers.
The higher fractal does not contradict the lower fractal. Instead, it paradoxically overrules the lower fractal and nullifies it. The higher fractal truths DO NOT somehow co-exist, or in anyway mingle with the lower fractal truths, instead, they just dissolve them. The higher truth is the annihilator of all lower truths. Unlike contradictions that can fight on forever, in paradoxes the presence of ‘the older brother’ invariably invalidates the ‘younger brother’. This is how, as Baba says, ‘the intellect will become the hero of it’s own murder.’ All of science, which has ‘nested’ itself in Fractal -2, is currently holding a metaphorical pistol in it’s mouth.
Fractal -2(negative two)
The ‘Apparent’ Phenomenal World
and the Ephemeral World
” To you, what you see is absolutely real; to me it is absolutely false.”
– Meher Baba (E & N)
Fractal -2 is the ‘apparent’ phenomenal world that most people believe is real. I decided to describe this fractal first because, this is the fractal most are familiar with and firmly believe in. This is the fractal most people are referring to, when they say “be real,” “be realistic,” or “lets get back to the real world.” It is the world that most of us are taught in schools, by our parents, by society, and thereafter, by our own worldly experiences. It is the ‘worldly man’s world, that assumes at an axiomatic level that ‘matter’ or it’s alter ego ‘energy’ exists, is real, and that together they comprise all that really ‘matters’. In this world view, ‘time’ matters, as much as ‘matter’ matters. It is the worldly man’s view of the world. Here’s a fractal statement from the Bible, pertaining to this exact fractal:
“Has not God made foolish the wisdom of this world.”
— Corinthians 1:20
When we see the world through the lens of Fractal -2 goggles, we are in a world, as Alan Watts well puts it, “alone and afraid in a world I never made.” Even now, I most often find myself looking at the world through Fractal -2 goggles. Fractal -2 is the most convincing fractal. For most of us, as Baba puts it, “it seems absolutely real.” Our entire life experience seems to confirm it’s validity. But both Baba and quantum physics assures us that it has no existence at all — in and of itself.
On this fractal, we believe that our consciousness was born into our physical bodies; We believe that our consciousness is dependent on the health of our physical bodies; that our brains are doing our thinking for us, through various neuro-chemical processes. On this fractal, we identify ourselves with our individual bodies(both gross and subtle), and have conviction in things like nutrition, gravity, energy, genetics, and other physiological laws that we believe governs our world.
“Your soul is not in your body. Your body is in your soul.”
— Alan Watts
The key feature that marks Fractal -2 is the belief in individual free-will. This is the belief that ‘I am doing me, of my own free will, in and of myself.’ On this fractal we believe that we as individuals are ourselves the primary agent of our destiny. We believe that our lives are our own responsibilities; and that it is up to us to make our lives better. Sounds reasonable doesn’t it.
The world as seen through Fractal -2 goggles, is the world of consequences. In this state of mind, we see the world as made up of immutable laws that govern the consequences of all our actions. It is an objective world, in which everything and everyone are subject to the exact working out of Karmic laws. Of this fractal Baba says: “Karmic determination is the condition of true responsibility. It means that man will reap as he sows. What a person gathers by way of his experience is invariably connected with what he does.”
Animals, are not subject to the Laws of Karma, only humans are. This is because animals are driven directly by instinct without the intermediary option to think through and choose their actions, like humans do. Thus they cannot be morally culpable for their actions. Humans on the other hand, though imbued with instincts, can think about the actions before they choose to do them. This ability to reason and choose our actions (or ‘free-will agency’), is what makes us morally culpable and thereby subject to the laws of Karma. Morality, ‘free-will agency’, Karma, and Sanskaras are altogether inseparable from each other.
On Fractal -2, we find ourselves firmly believing in concepts like ‘payback’, ‘justice’ , ‘reward and punishment,’ and tend to think in terms of what one ‘earns’ or ‘deserves.’ In this world view, God may love me, but he may have to spank me as well. Am I a good boy? or am I a bad boy? Is so and so, a good person or a bad person? Morality and justice rule this fractal. On this fractal one sees a world as a place where the ‘worthy’ unfortunately have to intermingle with the ‘unworthy’ and the‘worthless;’ One sees oneself as either ‘worthy’ of God’s love or ‘deserving’ of it, or his wrath. In this world view, the ‘fortunate’ live among the ‘unfortunate’, depending on how we look at it. When the Bible says, “you shall be judged by the meter you measure with..” it points to the woes of this fractal. This is the fractal of abimana(pride).
“Limited or measurable means abimana(pride)” – Upasni Maharaj
Fractal -2 is the fractal of the ‘ego’. The ego cannot survive on any other fractal. The ego desperately needs this fractal to be the ‘real’ reality, so that it can achieve it’s measurable ‘worthiness,’ through the efforts it makes, via it’s free-will agency. Free-will agency is paramount for the ego’s existence. Without it, the ego may just have to vanish.
Everyone on the Gross plane through the fourth plane of consciousness is on Fractal -2. Even the 4th planer, who identifies himself with his subtle body, thinks that he himself is the doer, that he is responsible for all that he does. Baba says of the 4th planer: ‘he has infinite power, but ZERO knowledge.’ Zero Knowledge means he does not know a single thing aright, not even one thing. Every single thing he thinks he knows is completely false. If this is true of the 4th planer, it is true of the 3rd, 2nd, 1st, and all Gross planers. Everyone who sees the world through Fractal -2 goggles suffers from zero knowledge, i.e. complete ignorance.
Now, lets fractal up from Fractal -2, to Fractal -1, and take a look through the lens of Fracal -1 goggles.
Fractal -1(negative one)
God does All
In Fractal -1, God is the ‘Sole Player in this Divine Game.’ Here there is no individual free will. God is all, he knows all, and he does all. Since Karma can only go to the ‘doer,’ if God is the only doer, all Karma could only be His. Thus there is no such thing as individual Karma on this fractal. The law of Karma, and it’s constituent building blocks (or Sanskaras), disappear back into what they always were — Nothing. Individual free-will agency is also seen more correctly for what it always was — hypnotism, mesmerism, a complete delusion. On this fractal, all things are seen more correctly than Fractal -2, as nothing but perfect executions of God’s exact will. On this Fractal, only that which is his will CAN actually happen. This is the Fractal that Baba is referring to when he says “Truly speaking, you are not responsible.”
When the world is seen through Fracal -1 goggles, the ‘ego’ literally has no place for it’s existence. It vanishes instantly. Since God’s will does all, the very question of morality, and worthiness vanish. One becomes humble, not by one’s effort, but by knowledge itself. All so called humility achieved through effort is nothing but the guise of modesty. True humility comes by simply knowing that there was no little ‘me’ all along, that big ‘Me’ or God was the Sole Player in this Divine Game all along.
Humility is a function of knowledge, not effort.
Fractal -1 goggles instantly provide for such humility. It also provides for effortless complete surrender. Eruch Jessawalla once described himself as a ‘perfect slave’. On fractal -2, becoming a perfect slave is seen to be no easy task. But when seen more correctly with fractal -1 goggles, it is clear to see that everyone and everything that ever existed are nothing but ‘perfect slaves.’ If God is the only doer, everyone cannot help but be ‘perfect slaves’. When one comes to see that God is the only doer, complete surrender is instantly available, and in fact –truly unavoidable.
Surrender (like humility) is also a function of knowledge, not effort.
The 5th planer experiences and lives on Fractal -1. In other words, he sees the world through Fractal -1 goggles. To him, we are not in a ‘video game,’ but in a perfectly pre-scripted ‘movie’ — already filmed, produced, and burned onto a disc, being viewed – so to speak. Everywhere he sees only God, as the only doer, and as the only being. However, ultimately he too is seeing things incorrectly. Why? Because there is even a higher truth that obliterates this fractal. Lets fractal up to fractal 0 and take a look at actual Reality. Fractal -1 is still part of Illusion and therefor false.
Nirvana(공Kong, Void, Nothingness)
Meher Baba describes Fractal 0 amply with “Nothing is happening, Nothing has ever happened, and Nothing will ever happen.” As science has discovered in the past century, we are living in a perfectly substance-less universe, made of nothing, and where all phenomena is nothing more than an ‘appearance’ of something happening, not unlike a hologram. Science cannot, and will not, ever be able to prove anythings existence, including God. However, when it comes to proving the non-existence of things, science is surely the man for the job. Baba said that “the intellect will become the hero of it’s own murder.” And science has no doubt achieved this. Inadvertently, science has managed to prove the non-existence of no less than matter itself, as well as space and time, revealing all of them as nothing more than illusions.
So what can account for why nothing is even there. The reason why nothing is happening is because God left nothing undone. When the Lord’s Prayer says “His will be done.” It means Done, as in already done, or finished. This Highest of Truths shows up in the first chapter of the Bible, Genesis.
“By the seventh day God completed His work that He had done,
and He rested on the seventh day from all His work that He had done.”
– Genesis 2:2
God works no more. He is done. God is not working now, and never will. His omniscience, omnipotence, infinite mercy, and infinite love for all beings, could not have not finished it, leaving absolutely nothing undone. Satisfied with his finished work, God is in a perfect state of rest. The same highest Truth is the basis for the Lotus Sutra. To know more about this, please check out my article, the Lotus of Surrender. To start the New Life, Baba had Dr. Ghani shout out at the top of his lungs: “Ho-Gaya!” seven times. Ho gaya means, “already done.”
You will never ever hear anything more astounding, more unbelievable, yet more true, than ‘nothing is happening’. ‘Nothing is happening’ is the most counter intuitive truth there is. It literally goes against the sum total of all our experiences. Total conviction in ‘nothing is happening,’ goes against every fiber of our (non-existent) being. It is the absolute most unexpected truth. It is the highest possible insight. Total conviction in ‘Nothing is happening’, in and of itself, constitutes complete knowledge of ignorance. Therefor, I thought, its gotta be true.
Welcome to Fractal Zero. This is the Fractal of the 6th planer. A 6th planer knows there is nothing to know. As Baba says ‘while the rest are ignorant of knowledge, the 6th planer has ‘knowledge of ignorance’.
Knowledge of ignorance IS not different than knowledge of ‘Nothing is happening.
This is the Fractal of the ‘Mighty Joke’. Once one of the visitors asked Meher Baba: “What is life?” Baba smilingly replied:
“Life is a mighty joke. He who
knows this can hardly be understood by others. He who does
not know it finds himself in a state of delusion. He may
ponder over this problem day and night but will find
himself incapable of knowing it. Why? Because people take
life seriously, and God lightly; whereas we must take God
seriously, and life lightly. Then we know that we always
were the same and will ever remain the same…the
originators of this joke. This knowledge is not achieved
by reasoning, but is the knowledge of experience.” –Meher Baba
With Fractal 0 goggles on, we get our first glimpse of the Real Reality. It is only here that humility gets perfected, and surrender gets perfected. One may have received true humility and surrender on Fractal -1 but it is only on Fractal 0 that both of them get perfected.
Perfect Humility, and Perfect Surrender are both functions of knowledge, not effort.
Further, this is also the fractal wherein Love for God gets perfected. The best reason for loving God, Baba says is for no reason at all — for no possible gain. Love for a measure of something in return is not really love now is it? Only love for no reason is love, and this is the way God should be loved. Thus:
Loving God aright, is a function of knowledge, not effort.
This knowledge is the knowledge of ‘Nothing is happening.
To understand exactly how this might be true, please read my article:
Open the Heart Sutra
The 6th planer experiences the Truth of ‘nothing is happening’. Since nothing exists on Fractal 0, his experience is that of nothing. This nothing is Nirvana, the great sigh of relief. Baba states that Buddha only taught upto the 6th plane of Nirvana, and that he never talked about Nirvicalpa. Nirvana is Fractal 0, and Nirvicalpa is Fractal 1. You cannot get to Fractal 1 unless you go through Fractal 0. Yet the two are like different sides of the same piece of paper. When you get to 0, you have 1. As Baba says, you must go from False Everything(Fractal -2,-1) to REAL NOTHING(Fractal 0) in order to get to REAL EVERYTHING(Fractal 1).
Fractal 0 is uniquely part of the TRUTH(Fractal 1) in that, it is at least, not incorrect about anything. This fractal is the REAL NOTHING that leads to REAL EVERYTHING. For the 6th planer nothing exists but God(the unmoved mover). He has complete knowledge of ignorance. Perfect knowledge of ignorance = Nothing is happening.
So lets now examine the actual REAL Reality, which is Fractal 1.
The Unmoved Mover
The unmoved mover or prime mover, is how Aristotle described this fractal. Fractal 1 is God, or Real existence itself. When Baba says “Is.” is the only complete sentence that can be said without in any way lying, this sentence “Is.” is the perfect description of Fractal 1. Not, unlike Lao Tzu’s ‘Tao’ and Aristotle’s “unmoved mover”, this “ISNESS” cannot be described. The first line of the Tao Tae Ching states:
The Tao that can be articulated is baloney.
In philosophical terms, this realm is known as the ‘Noumenan’ or ‘Noumenal World,’ and it’s opposite is the ‘Phenomenon’ or the ‘Phenomenal World.’ In the Noumenan itself nothing happens. If any phenomena or epi-phenomena of any kind occurs, it is part of the ‘phenomenal world,’ or the ‘ephemeral world’. The noumenal world, has no moving parts, no phenomena, no epiphenomena, as well as no attributes of any kind. This is the True Reality, or Fractal 1. When Baba says ‘God-realization is exactly like being wide awake in the deepest of deep sleep,’ he is speaking of Fractal 1. The Bible puts it this way: When asked by Moses to describe himself…
God said to Moses, “I am that I am”. -Exodus 3:14
This Reality is truly beyond description. In fact, the mere act of describing it begins to misrepresent it. The Noumenan is the True Reality that underpins all phenomena. It is named Fractal 1(One), because it is only One, is of Oneness, alone IS, and exists alone, in and of itself. In biblical terminology Fractal 1 is referred to as ‘God the Father’. In Hindu terminology Fractal 1 is referred to as ‘Bhrama.’ In Baba’s terminology this Fractal is referred to as God the beyond beyond.
The Hierarchical Nature of Law
All is according to Law. But truly speaking, you are only subject to the laws that come with the goggles you wear.
By special dispensation of God, also, the very highest type of devotee, whose whole being is permanently focused on the Divine Beloved, is as completely exempt from the law of karma as the Dnyani.
The Dnyani, AS WELL AS THE HIGHEST TYPE OF DEVOTEE, is exempt from the laws of Karma because the law of Karma (along with free-will, and sanskaras) don’t actually exist. The ‘highest type of devotee’ no longer has the monkey of Karma on his back. But the real question should be “what monkey?”
All you need is one exception, to completely disprove a law.
This is exactly what happened to Newton’s laws of motion. Henri Poincare’s ‘three-body problem’ came along around 1915 and undermined it. Further, due to what is now known as ‘sensitivity to initial conditions’, classical physics lost its deterministic foundation. This marked the beginning of what was later aptly called “chaos theory.”
In the same way Fractal -1 simply undermines Fractal -2, Fractal 0 comes along and annihilates everything. Thus, in Reality Karma does not exist, never has, and never will.
The Law of Nothingness = The Law of Love
“Everything is fixed according to this law of Nothing.” — Meher Baba
Baba tells us that at the top of the hierarchy of ‘so called’ laws sits the Law of Love. At other times he calls it the Law of Nothingness. This is Fractal 0. I like to call it the ‘Law of He finished it.’ He finished it, therefore Nothing is happening, because of his infinite ability motivated by his infinite Love. Once Fractal 0 is achieved Fractal 1 is inevitable. Fractal one has no Laws. Nothing governs God(Reality), he is beyond governance. If we want to give it a name perhaps we can call it ‘the Law of One.’ but probably its MOST CORRECT NAME is:
‘The Law of Done.’
With this knowledge, I rest in your peace. Thank you Father, for finishing it all, for me, and for all sentient beings, whom I love, as you do. Your Law of Done, is your law of Nothingness, and your Law of Love, and is your Peace. I rest in the joy of your peace, for your love left nothing undone.
This was a specimen of my mind, for your perusal.
