May I Dispute That?
I mean, how do you know how it really works!? What are you,
omniscient or something?
"No, but I speak with the perspective of a
"What if it isn't "higher" as in value or access to truth, just
another dimension. I mean, I'll concede you have your own
viewpoints and all, but they may be just relative!
What if I get the stamp of validation from my
superiors, the archangels, or even God?
What guarantee do I have that this isn't just a "higer" dimension
in your universe, but it isn't higher to us?
Alright. Ya got me, you clever sophist, you. I
still love ya, though.
Aw, but it was a good wrestle, eh, ol' pal?
Is philosophy supposed to be like this?
To the upper right is a mandaloid diagram of the underlying
structure of the cosmos. As an overall Gestalt it comes off, fits
together, sort of, gives the sense of coherence and symmetry. Ah,
there's the rub. If you examine it closely it is chock full of
kluge-y irregularities, imperfections, and chaotic intrusions from
other dimensions. This is just like our world, lives, and minds.
For example, we get the illusion of "self" as continuous,
coherent, and rational ---if you don't look to closely.
The truth about these mandala forms are that they represent the
deep soul expressing itself through its many facets. These
diagrams could be imagined operating at two (ha!) levels: (1) the
deeper soul infusing the deep soul with structure and energy, and
the deep soul in turn informing the ego which adds its own complex
modifications, thus making the individual whose existence and
becoming is thus enjoyed (and suffered compassionately) by the
In South Asia, the Yogic tradition (which overlaps with the
mystical Buddhist tradition) recognizes mandalas and levels of
Below is a radiant soul that if perceived clairvoyantly expresses
a rich soul chakra:

| Oh, my, so much to become!
To the right are some other expanding soul-diagrams, sort of
mandalaforms, exploring various ways of being and becoming.
And to the left, one of the more powerful soul concrescences which
hints at the vibrancy of vitality of emergent energies. Remember,
spirit comes into three- dimensional space-time through a series
of step-down transformations.
What, you want explanations in writing? Okay: this below left:
You may say that the mind that devised these drawings is living in
"La-La-Land," and you would be perhaps a little correct (see
drawing on right). We all live in or overlap with thousands of
associated "lands," perhaps hundreds of thousands if we include
our ventures into various dream worlds over a lifetime. In this
realm to the right, laughter, play, celebration, singing, dancing,
exulting, and ducks (cute little funny lovey quacky ducks, rubber
duckies in the bathtub, and the like) all conspire to raise our
consciousness into the realms of the joyous, so welcome them as
part of your role repertoire. You may venture into La La Land the
way you occasionally go to the Mall or the Fair. But do keep it
alive in your possibilities!.
But Seriously, Now
The problem with all this is that there are people who may err on
the side of either taking this too literally or even seriously and
those others who may not take it seriously enough. These are
jen-you-wine speculations, with all the honorifications thereupon
attributable thereto and henceforth. If you don't believe me,
ask... uh... who indeed might be accredited and certified to
affirm the aforementioned? I mean on this planet? Well,
then, go beyond, my friend, beyond and beyond the beyond! Reach
deep into your imagination, through the portals that separate us
from the influx of archetypal whatchamacallits from other
dimensions. (They're making movies about this now, can you believe
We shall finish up this discursive digression into categories that
have not yet attained their full value on this planet.
