Forethought – you might need to read this twice. There was only absence. To say there was only darkness is to say light alone was absent, not true - there was only absence. To hint there was only silence is to hint only sound was absent, not true - there was only absence. To convey there was no matter was to convey only the touchable was absent, this was not the case - there simply was only absence. There is no science, no predetermined logic - only the silence of that we cannot hear, touch, see - nor ever understand, that brings us to the point of presence. In the presence materialization entered and the absence was absorbed.
One - emerging from self - exhaled for the first time. The breath of One pushed the presence into the embrace of time, sound into silence - matter into what was the heart of absence. One transitioned from self to everything, and Spirit, for the first time separated from the singularity of One. Then there were two where there was once only One. One everything, Spirit embraced by the presence.
The absence was gone and presence began - now there was existence outside of One, now silence was forever interrupted by the deafening sound of creation, and were there was not - matter was. As One emerged there was indeed a deafening noise, the sound of which continues to reverberate and will forever be present until One pulls back the absence.
Everything humanity believes is a product of the human mind - humanity will never know One for One is unknowable. We believe we understand that which exists outside of self - concepts such as time, space, matter and those things we will never see nor touch. The reality of our knowing is founded on the unprovable premise that what we know is reality and indeed fact.
We have defined the aspect of time in the passing of night and day - then we reduced the concept to hours and minutes, and now further into micro-slices of confined time. Today we accept past, present, and future as fact. This “knowing” of time is a human perception without the proof of reality, for time is merely a concept. We have structured matter into what we can see, what is dark, and what is against the reality of presence - anti-matter, that which isn’t.
The need for understanding and the confines of what we can understand and accept as reality - pushes us into terms and phrases such as “edge of space” as if creation is limited. Please, there is no limit to the presence. We humans have from our first breath been determined to define One - know well that we have only twisted and limited the reality of One, we will never comprehend the profound essence of One.
And so our search continues - always within the embrace of the human mind. We search for truth, we search for science, we search for both an understanding and meaning to life, but our search always has and sadly always will be limited by the human mind. To begin the process of understanding - we must first attempt to understand why One took the first breath, so far it is beyond our capability. So perhaps we should try to understand the essence of love - yet another concept (to date) beyond the human mind.
