Homo sapiens’s quest to decode the mind of god is as old as Homo sapiens themselves. Since the dawn of time they have tried to unravel the mysteries of nature. Their existence in itself is nothing short of a miracle. What are the odds that billions of tiny, apparently mindless strings, vibrating in their own unique frequencies, totally unaware of you, combine in the perfect formation to form the complex you? Very, very less! Isn’t it a lucky coincidence that you exist and is here right now, reading this blog? Khoj welcomes the lucky you in this journey to the centre of god’s mind through a series of post “Mind of God Decoded”. This is the first in the series where we are going to deal with the illusion of our existence. Are we unique? Do we really exist? Or is it just a cosmic illusion called Maya?
Ancient Vedic scripts revealed some of the secrets of the god’s mind. It taught us that life is nothing but an illusion created out of our sense of separation from the ultimate truth called God or Brahman. That sense of separation is the conscience that creates matter out of vacuum. With matter, is created space. With space there is change, and with change there is time. The moment that sense of separation vanishes, we return to the Brahman. That moment of eternal bliss is called enlightment. The poetic beauty of this idea will attract some philosophers, but in this era of science such an idea would not appeal to the mass unless there is some strong evidence.
The pursuit to unravel the mystery has never been stronger than it is in the current century. Scientists are in a mad rush to find the ‘Theory of Everything’ – the single unified theory that will decode the mind of god. The theory has eluded scientists for centuries. But with the advent of Quantum Mechanics it seems we are ever so close to our aspiration. The double-slit experiment that baffled the physicists, revolutionized science, unravelled the mystery of our universe.
You might loose your sanity trying to think of it, but it is true. The particle travelled in all possible paths at the same time. But the moment you used your consciousness, your logical brain, to measure it, it travelled in only one path. Similarly, there are multiple parallel universes with multiple parallel you. All the probable path the universe can take, exists at the same time. But the moment our conscious mind tries to perceive it through logic we remember only one of the many probable path.
Why did the particle behaved like a particle when observed and as a wave when not observed? Why do we see only one probable life? Answer might be as simple as, ‘else our brains will get confused’. All our senses through which we perceive are limited because otherwise our brain would have been confused. We cannot perceive more than 3 dimensions, we cannot see more than the VIBGYOR, we have a limited audible range, and similarly we remember only one probable path. The consciousness that makes us remember only one of the many possible paths is the sense of separation. It is the illusion; it is the Maya. When we see all probable paths taken by the universe, we realize there is no universe; we see no difference between us and everything else, because there are no us.
Confused? So am I! But think of it this way. When we see all possible frequencies of light at the same time, we see a white nothing. Similarly, when we hear all possible frequencies of sound, all we could hear is a white noise. When all possible matter and antimatter comes together all we get is a vacuum. When a particle travels all possible paths with all possible velocities at the same time, the resultant velocity is zero. When all possibilities come together it creates a big nothing. So, when there are all possible parallel universes at the same time, there are no universes at all. When there are all possible you at the same time, there are no you. You exist only when you have that sense of separation. You exist when your conciseness makes you remember only one of the many possible paths. You are nothing but an ILLUSION! It is all in the MIND!
