Added a few words just to avoid misunderstanding
Mar 7 '19 at 8:06 comment added SonOfThought I didn't like the usage 'many dimensional' because ( I feel ) the word 'many' indicates something countable. When he realizes it he realizes that this verse (holy-bhagavad-gita.org/chapter/2/verse/20) is about the ultimate Reality (though the verse is about soul). He realizes that there is nothing to lose or gain. rkmdelhi.org/articles/brahmans-nature-remains-unaltered
Mar 7 '19 at 8:05 comment added SonOfThought @christo183: I believe the word in your comment--'Brahma' (instead of Brahman) was a typo. The two words are different. Since there is nothing called time, you may say 'time' is just an idea. Brahman is not like that.
Mar 7 '19 at 5:52 comment added christo183 Thanks, I think I get it now. Brahman is the idea I expressed as "zero - many dimensional "WSOGMM""? Brahma, (I was asking PeterJ about a typo) is the self- or un-created, first consciousness? Anyway, the point that prompted my question is: Our method of questioning should be in question itself. (especially in the "western tradition" where partial/incomplete answers are the norm)
Mar 6 '19 at 16:17 comment added SonOfThought "....then this phenomenon may indicate that we are actually complicating Reality by looking at it in the wrong way. - 'Brahma' would be redundant?" ~ No problem, you may say that 'Brahma' is redundant. But there must be another thing (that has consciousness) in its place in some other name.
Mar 6 '19 at 16:17 comment added SonOfThought "....should we be able to affect Reality,...." ~ When one realizes that reality, he gets nothing that can be treated as 'physical'. If so, how should he able to affect Reality, and who should it do with his physical body?
Mar 6 '19 at 16:17 comment added SonOfThought @christo183: "When an answer is obtained, it creates many more new questions." ~ If the answer is correct/ultimate, there won't be a second thing to ask our question. "That means that the ultimate/complete answer seems to recede,...." ~ He will understand whether it is ultimate or complete.
Mar 6 '19 at 13:36 comment added christo183 @PeterJ almost like trying to record a zero - many dimensional "WSOGMM" by means of a three - four dimensional "observer"...
Mar 6 '19 at 13:06 comment added user20253 @christo183 - I'd say the idea we're complicating Reality by looking at in the wrong way is spot on, We're only looking at one aspect of Plotinus' 'Simplex'.
Mar 6 '19 at 12:51 comment added christo183 @PeterJ To clarify what I mean by "answers receding": When an answer is obtained, it creates many more new questions. That means that the ultimate/complete answer seems to recede, since our fraction of knowledge seems to diminish with each fractional answer... Just between us, I'm wondering if, should we be able to affect Reality, then this phenomenon may indicate that we are actually complicating Reality by looking at it in the wrong way. - 'Brahma' would be redundant?
Mar 6 '19 at 11:25 comment added user20253 @christo183 - For the advaitan answers are not always receding but are regularly being reached. I would question the idea that 'Brahman' is properly used as a synonym for 'God' - otherwise the word 'Brahman' would be redundant - but either way this would be Ultimate and Real. This Ultimate is discussed at length in the Vedas and elsewhere. .
Mar 6 '19 at 5:19 comment added christo183 Have not those who seek in themselves met with the same phenomenon? Perhaps the realization that answers are always receding, is a milestone in itself? Is there any particular mention in the Vedas of the "phenomenon"?
