Everything that exists in our universe took form in the Prime Dimension of pure consciousness first. When it was time to manifest in physical form it was clothed in materiality. The consciousness and spiritual substance in which it existed in the Prime Dimension remains with it in physical form. This is why everything in this universe has some form of consciousness and spirit to it. A rock knows that it is a rock, and a street sign knows that it is a street sign. We routinely change one thing into another as we manufacture the products and objects that we want. That process of change imprints part of our consciousness on the object and changes its true nature in the process.
A quick look at Thomas Edison and Nicola Tesla and their inventions will demonstrate my point. We can use altered states of mind to tap into the creative aspect of the interactive universe, as has been demonstrated by inventors such as Thomas Edison, Nicola Tesla, and many others.
Thomas Edison used a state of deep relaxation to tap into the knowledge-base of the universe. This is what he had to say about it:
“I know this world is ruled by infinite intelligence. Everything that surrounds us – everything that exists – proves that there are infinite laws behind it. There can be no denying this fact. It is mathematical in its precision.”
He recognized that there was an implicit order to all things, whether he understood the true nature of that order or not, he knew it was present in everything.
Nicola Tesla was much more connected to the interactive universe than Edison was, as evidenced by this quote:
“My brain is only a receiver, in the Universe there is a core from which we obtain knowledge, strength and inspiration. I have not penetrated into the secrets of this core, but I know that it exists.”
The prolific nature of his inventions is a testament to his connection to the interactive universe. While Edison focused on direct current as a power source, Tesla envisioned the three-phase alternating current system used throughout the world today. This is a prime example of tapping into the interactive universe and bringing forth the information that ultimately is available to all of us. We just need to transform our thinking into the more efficient process of intuition.
Nicola Tesla’s recognition of the core of the universe from which we obtain knowledge, strength and inspiration is an important insight. He recognized that the core of the universe contains secrets and that those secrets are not easily accessed or penetrated. That is because from the consciousness of separation we lack the awareness and perception to delve into those secrets.
The point of this forum is to explain that those secrets can be accessed and understood by transforming our core emotional nature so we can enter into the consciousness of oneness. Within that state of oneness the secrets of the universe will gradually be made available to us. The process is slow in order for us to absorb the knowledge and develop the necessary understanding before we proceed to the next step. We will not come to know all of the secrets of the universe within one lifetime, but over a vastly extended experience of many lifetimes we will eventually acquire complete access.
As long as we remain within the consciousness of separation, we will miss the most amazing parts and aspects of the interactive universe. The consciousness of oneness isn’t something we can learn and use as we learned about the world of separation in school; it is the result of an inner transformation that we ultimately must create within ourselves.
We cannot, as science suggests, be an independent observer. Our presence as an observer changes the nature of what we are observing to one degree or another. In most cases the difference is minor and the scientific method appears to work. But there are times when our presence and consciousness totally changes the nature of the observation.
The material universe accounts for approximately 4% of what’s there. The other 96% is consciousness. Scientists have invented the concepts of dark matter and dark energy in an effort to explain the movements of galaxies that they observe. The known matter doesn’t have enough mass, and thus not enough gravity, to explain the movements. The idea that the entire universe is conscious is nonsense to them, so it is rejected out of hand.
I refer to the unmanifest universe as the Prime Dimension. It is a dimension consisting entirely of consciousness. Universal mind, universal spirit, and universal love are all part of that universal consciousness. We are citizens of the Prime Dimension. We are eternal spiritual beings having a mortal human experience.
We depend on science to understand the universe around us. This is part of the problem; we don’t understand science anywhere near as much as we should. The comment I hear a lot is: there’s no proof that (fill in the blank) exists. The problem is with the word, “proof.” There is also no proof that it doesn’t exist. What we need to do is exchange the word evidence for the word proof. What do we have evidence of that something either exists or doesn’t exist? This opens up a whole list of subjects. At one point radio didn’t exist on this planet. Now it does. The process of inventing radio came to at least five different people, spread out all over the planet, at approximately the same time. Nicola Tesla was one of them. Ultimately, Tesla shared his concept for radio with Guglielmo Marconi, who is now credited with its invention. This happens all of the time. It’s how new inventions enter our world; the interactive universe beings the idea or concept, out of the Prime Dimension, to a number of people in different parts of the world. Whoever has the means and the dedication to reduce the concept to practice usually gets credit for the invention. Nothing comes into this world unless it first exists in the Prime Dimension. When the time is right, the concept is shared with individual people resulting in the concept becoming a reality in our world.
The same principle applies to many natural processes. We are aware that a number of plant and animal species die out and become extinct each year. What takes us a longer time to discover is that millions of new species appear on our planet. All of these new species are fully formed in the Prime Dimension, then they are clothed in materiality as they appear. Some are evolutionary offspring of existing plants and animals, some are not. Some simply appear and we don’t know how that happened. There are many things that come into existence in our world that we don’t understand. There are also many things that happen that we don’t understand either.
In many ways science has become a form of religion. We have become so invested in certain concepts and theories that we discount or reject what is happening right in front of us. The theory of evolution is one of them. We are taught evolution as established fact, rather than the flawed theory that it actually is. We look for “the missing link” when there are thousands if missing links. I’ll give you an example: flowering plants depend on insects (bees in particular) for pollination. So which came first; the bee or the flower? As far as we can tell, they both appeared at approximately the same point in time; neither one evolved before the other or because of the other.
The argument is often presented as evolution vs. creationism. This is another form of the binary argument: either it’s totally this way, or it’s totally the other way. In reality there are usually thousands of different possibilities in-between the two extremes. Just because we have been trained to think in certain terms and methods doesn’t mean that other principles and methods were not used. Just as with inventions, many things are seeded into our world directly from the Prime Dimension, or another method has been used that we have rejected for lack of proof because it doesn’t fit within our belief system. The problem isn’t the fact that things appear, the real obstacle is our limited belief system.
Because consciousness is a common thread between the Prime Dimension and our world, some people have taught that we can create anything we want through imagining and believing. If something in our life is within the life lessons we have selected the process of manifesting appears to work. Most of the time it doesn’t. I have found from experience that we are better off listening to the interactive universe rather than asking or demanding something from it. If there is a problem that needs to be solved in our life, we need to clearly define the problem and any conditions that are present, and then open our mind to any possible solution, not just a solution that we have become emotionally invested in. In this way many problems can be solved.
