Euclid’s axiom: Two parallel lines in a plane shall never meet. When one watches in real time two railway tracks making two parallel lines in front  we create a picture plane and  we see the lines merge at a vanishing point. It is imaginary but that is perspective. Our mind plays tricks and optical illusion is as a result. The famous vase-face illustration  is on a picture plane. When one notices a vase another may as well settle for faces on either side.

When we look up we see the sun, light of which takes eight minutes to impinge on our retina. What does it mean? We are looking into the past. We don’t even notice. It is the present but past is addressing us; similarly genetic information we carry within is setting our future as well. By fifty mortality kicks in and we begin to think more of death that we never gave a thought earlier. Give a few more decades and when the funeral hearse takes its final journey are not reduced to a notice in the obit page?

Law of entropy states atoms tend to loosen up from objects so an apple left alone becomes ripe over ripe and in the end it is mush. It speaks of time. Smash atoms and you can produce fundamental particles. There comes a point you cannot go further. At one level we are timeless!. In short we delude ourselves to think of our world in terms of days months or years. There is a mysterious timelessness which envelop our  conscious world. Dreams and visions clue us in and yet do we give heed to these? Delusional man who make much of now imagines it is meant for making the hay while the sun shines. It was thus 2008 ripped apart his smug complacency to show how deceived he was. Did he learn the lesson for good? Those who go on making hay merely because the sun shines overhead will get to eat lot of it.

‘Out of a misty dream
Our path emerges for a while, then closes
Within a dream.’

To be shown the edge of eternity

And take the day’s declining ray

And be less That what Is,

Where day and night are

In balance equal, I know

I have been here before.

Was it imagined or arrived

From much deliberation or

Learned by rot from seers of old

Is rather redundant. 

Eternity zeroed in this moment

Cancels out such from its Fullness. 

To become more than

What is only given to man is past 

Times reckoning,-

Who is on the threshold of Yesterday.

Cosmic Mind is infinite where Time and Space hold no meaning. As the Scriptures say,’One day is with the Lord as a thousand years…’we expect God to answer us and our so called good acts be paid back in our time. Cosmic Mind has a long range vision and to plumb its depths is a fool’s business.
That reminds me: Cosmic Mind holds no distinction between a fool and a wise man. Why? I can remind you of a parable that I wrote sometime back. Since I find it bothersome to go through my old posts let me post it from my book(available online), Sufficient unto this Day.
A Fool Is A Wiseman (Who just missed the bus)
‘Mad’ Max was designated as the biggest fool who ever lived in a town with a curious name Pie-In-The-Sky. As soon as he learnt to assemble a refrigerator he knew he wanted to sell one. So he took off to the North Pole. But the Inuit didn’t buy a single one and he died a very poor man. All that he left behind was some ice boxes and a technical manual.
On the other hand Dr. Faustus having made a pact with the devil became the most celebrated scholar who knew everything that went under the sun, which passed for knowledge. How the crowned heads and scholars alike feted him! Then came the computers that made him redundant. He died in grief. He said that a machine beat him. Yes.
The world went a-changing! Then came a thaw and ice melted. The polar caps vanished as an icicle in a furnace. The people in Nunavut learnt to live with the climate changes. Then someone found the papers of ‘Mad’ Max and it was a discovery that electrified the whole region. They learnt to make fridges themselves and control their houses to the right temperature. Who contributed to the welfare of the world more? A fool or a scholar?
Tailspin:In Cosmic Mind the word Success holds a different meaning that we hold. Time shows up the meaninglessness of such distinctions we make of life.
