Shoot an unflagging, perfectly-focused laser
beam straight out into space and it will never,
ever, reach the edge of anything.
Now I’m no astronomer, and the notion of infinite space can get pretty impenetrable (not to mention that its explanation likely involves the existence of multiple parallel universes). Part of the problem is that we human earthlings and our limited, linear ways of thinking are poorly equipped to understand stuff like this.
But something quite simple that I heard decades ago helps me at least begin to grasp even these inscrutable truths: there is no such thing as a straight line.
That’s right, shoot an unflagging, perfectly-focused laser beam straight out into space and it will never, ever, reach the edge of anything. And how will you know this? From the intense burning sensation…in the middle of your back. Everything—space, time, truth, life—comes back, ultimately, to itself.
So with nothing more than this rudimentary understanding, even some of the veiled mysteries of what it may mean to exist among other, parallel universes begin to peel back. Like what? Like knowing that:
...there may indeed be no limits other than those we impose on ourselves.
...something we always supposed lay ahead of us, always just out of reach,
might actually be right behind us.
...because there’s always a part of “them” in “us” and “us” in “them,” it’s
always about Us.
...we could be only just barely separated (if at all) from the ideal, the sacred,
“There is a Collective Entanglement of the frequencies of all life's energy. It is this String
that ties the past to the future, one’s unconsciousness to another’s consciousness, from one
dimension to all the others, from here to the infinite.” ~ SIMON CROWNE
