Tao: third quantum leap

Also, I believe that it will be necessary
to arrive more and more to a scientific knowledge
integrating the knowledge of the human spirit
to the knowledge of the object which this spirit seizes
and recognizing the inseparability
between object and subject.
Edgar Morin
All experience is subjective ...
it’s our brains make the images that we think we 'perceive'.
Experience of the exterior is always mediated
by particular sense organs and neural pathways.

To that extent, objects are creation,
and my experience of them is subjective, not objective.
It is, however, not a trivial assertion to note that very few persons,

at least in occidental culture, doubt the objectivity of such sense data
as pain or their visual images of the external world.
Or civilization is deeply based on this illusion.
Gregory Bateson
Socrates: What is good, Phaedrus,and what is not good
need we ask anyone else to tell us these things?
Robert M. Pirsig

If the doors of perception were cleansed every thing
would appear to man as it is, infinite.
For man has closed himself up, till he sees all things thro'
narrow chinks of his cavern.
William Blake
The world, then,is finite and at the same time limitless,
limitless precisely because there is nothing outside
that together with the inside could form a boundary.
But if this be so, then it follows that
“The world and life are one. I am my world”.
Subject and world are thus no longer
entities whose relational function
is in some way governed by the auxiliary verb “to have”
(that one has the other, contains it or belong it)
but by the existential to be:
“The subject does not belong to the world, but it is a limit to the world”.
For nothing inside a frame can state, or even ask, anything about that frame.
The solution, then,
is not the finding of an answer to the riddle of existence,
but the realization there is no riddle.
Paul Watzlawick
6.5 For an answer which cannot be expressed
the question too cannot be expressed.
The riddle does not exist.
If a question can be put at all, then it can also be answered.
6.52 We feel that even if all possible scientific questions be answered,
the problems of life have still not been touched at all.
Of course there is then no question left, and just this is the answer.
6.521 The solution of the problem of life is seen in the vanishing of this problem.
(Is not this the reason why men
to whom after long doubting the sense of life became clear,
could not then say wherein this sense consisted?)
6.522 There is indeed the inexpressible. This shows itself; it is the mystical.
7. Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one must be silent.
Ludwig Wittgenstein
Devi asks:
"O Shiva, what is your reality?
What is this wonder-filled universe?
What consttutes seed?
Who centers the universal wheel?
What is this life beyond form pervading forms?
How may we enter it fully,
above space and time,
names and descriptions?
Let my doubts be cleared!"

Vijñana Bhairava Tantra

It is always friday afternoon in Paradise
John Niven
Para mi solo recorrer los caminos que
tienen corazón, cualquier camino que tenga corazón.
Por ahí yo recorro, y la única prueba
que vale es atraversar todo su largo.
Y por ahí yo recorro mirando, mirando, sin aliento.

For me there is only the traveling on paths that have heart,
on any path that may have heart.
There I travel,
and the only worth-while challenge
  is to traverse its full length.

And there I travel looking, looking, breathlessly.
Don Juan Matus

 We tried reasoning
our way to Him:
it did not work;
but the moment we gave up,
no obstacle remained.
Hakim Sanai
Those who believe in substantiality
are like cows
those who believe in emptiness
are even worse
