Love in the Time of the Hadron Collider

Dog Poet Transmitting.......

'May your noses always be cold and wet'.

I’m fond of saying that physicist have proven that the universe is thought born and that everything we see, touch, hear, taste and smell is composed of mindstuff. I’ve long had an image in my mind of science, cyclopean and with its one eye turned toward whatever corporate profit and physical comfort demand, lurching up the highway of discovery and comprehension and forever ignoring the basic principle of what all of its venal, marketplace oriented discoveries reveal, It moves relentlessly toward an unbridgeable gulf, where eventually it stands on the ledge and looks across to the other side where it sees the poet, the mystic, the philosopher and itself, waving and smiling back at it from the other side.

Here is yet more unneeded proof of something, those of us so inclined can accept, but which those of us not disposed toward will argue away, because it interferes with their insistence on being the only determinant of what is real and what is not. The irony of this is that the ones arguing are not real but only temporary personality projections upon a permanent screen. I hate to say that it amuses me to hear people discount what they can’t see but it does. In dark ages, science acquires a certain comical swagger for making things you can squeeze out of tubes, in order to process the contents through other tubes that process the contents into waste products. They’re also inordinately fond of their ability to develop things that can kill large numbers of people very quickly.

When science and industry get together you eventually wind up with a perfect shit storm of catastrophes and the periodic end of civilizations. Like the arrow on the map says, “You are here”. There’s no good result when money and science get into bed together because all of their offspring turn out to be bloodthirsty troglodytes that eat their makers, which is certainly fitting but... they also eat everyone else too.

So people are making much about the Hadron Collider and how it seems to imply that the universe is permeated with an attractive force much like what we call love but generally define as anything or anyone we want, until the novelty wears off. It shouldn’t be such a big surprise that Love is the supreme engine of life and the most valuable possession in the world. The difficulty with love as an object of desire is that it requires sacrifice to reach the places of greatest power and mystery. You definitely have to pay for it. Of course, if you didn’t pay for it you wouldn’t have the capacity to contain and operate it in any case; not on the most desirable levels. The thing is, you pay for everything, no matter what it is.

Most children possess magical Love until puberty sets in and replaces it with pedestrian love. Once it’s been replaced you can’t remember what was there before it, most of the time. I should point out that Love is conscious. The Love you feel, when love it is, is conscious of itself and of you, even though you may think it is just one of a variety of emotions that you experience in the process of being alive. Love is different than anything else. It is also a science and a power of unimaginable force. We’ve got no concept of its real nature. It’s like the forces of nature. We can marvel at the power of a thunderbolt but we have no real concept of how much power is contained there. We see some small part of the ocean and we think we’ve got some idea of its magnitude. Scientists observe a law of Nature here and there and think they have some grasp of what is available. They think they’re pretty smart but mostly they are dumber than a bag of rocks because not only do they miss the best part of everything, they pervert whatever they do discover for the interests of those who want to sell you something that either hurts you or you don’t need.

Cosmic love sends us emissaries every now and then so that we can get a little insight into some small corner of love and it doesn’t take very long for the moneychangers to crucify them or grant them some other similarly suitable attention. This is why, most times, those favored by Love keep their abilities under wraps and work on the quiet. These aren’t most times and I suspect we’re going to be seeing a few things shortly. After all, if Love is the be all and end all and it is, well then, it’s bound to be in the thick of it somewhere.

Love is the integral essence and mindset of the consciousness that holds it all together. It enjoys experiencing itself so much that it divides into millions of reflections so that it can rediscover itself in a new mirror without end. Everyone wants to know, “How come if there’s a God he’s so hard to find or how come he hides all the time”. He/she is not the one who is hiding. The divine is everywhere in plain sight, here in the kingdom of the blind.

Civilization and all the things that pass for it, are the camouflage that conceals what we really are from each other. We spend our lives jumping through hoops for temporal authorities who have supplanted the indwelling authority with an external monster that feeds on fear. Fear and Love displace each other and cannot occupy the same space at the same time. I suspect this is a cosmic principle and a scientific fact and I suspect the reason that we aren’t all fully aware of it is because someone is making money off of the concealment of this truth.

It is the possession of Love which makes us divine and the lack of which that makes us something a great deal less. Of course, the whole thing is set up the way it is; is designed the way it is in order to create endless opportunities for Love to demonstrate its power. The world takes Love and attempts to turn it into a commercial item that can be sold as an unending conveyor belt load of unreasonable facsimiles, which disappoint without end. It’s new and improved and the same thing only different and it’s all potato chips and soft drinks, light and crispy and frothy with carbonation. It is love enhanced and made available as a disposable commodity, for all the disposable entities, whose value is constantly reduced by the drive to raise up the temporary as a God of desirable mortality for everyone who has lost their way and intends to keep on going for as long as it takes. Since it can’t be found there it can literally go on forever.

A great deal has been said about Love over time. Most of the great art in every field has been motivated and inspired by it. The most important thing about love to be aware of is that it is conscious. It is aware of itself. It contains the universe within it and is the sole reason that it exists at all. Of course it holds it all together and is attracted to itself in uncountable ways.

The world of the moment is what happens when Love is preempted by dreams of material splendor and control. For the world to be what it is there must always be some portion of this present. It is up to the individual soul to choose what it favors as a goal for its existence. You can have anything you want but you should expect it to turn into something else as soon as you possess it.

So, it doesn’t surprise me about the Hadron Collider and I don’t expect any of the other things we find out to surprise me much either. That’s because I’ve never had any problem believing that Love is all the things the poets have attributed to it and ever so much more. It’s not just conscious, it’s nutritive and it has a memory as well. It’s also omniscient so it knows everything everyone has thought and said and done in public and in private and it has a way of rewarding its friends and punishing its enemies. Yes, Love has enemies and most of them have to do with money and power, both of which seek to possess a value equal to love. That’s another thing that makes me laugh.

People ask me what I expect to happen in the near future. Basically I expect Love to awaken from its dream of life and become conscious within the hearts and minds suitable for the occurrence. I expect what’s been hidden to be revealed and I expect those lording it over the rest of us to flee in all directions and try to pull the Earth up over them so they can hide from the sudden appearance of a light that was not in their calculations the day before. I expect things of a rather fantastic order and I expect them fairly soon but maybe not that soon in human terms but soon enough to be soon.

I think part of the problem in attempting to comprehend Love is our excessive use of the word.
I love my wife; I love a good steak;
I love to go fishing. Do we use Love
as opposed to love, to signify the
binding force of reality?
In my search for reality, I devised a sort of prayer. It contrasted what
I considered faults with aspirations.
There was no "may my hate become love"; It was "may my arrogance become benevolence". This seemed to be more fitting.

Love runs deep, indeed..

Bhagavad-gītā As It Is 10.42

atha vā bahunaitena

kiḿ jñātena tavārjuna

viṣṭabhyāham idaḿ kṛtsnam

ekāḿśena sthito jagat


But what need is there, Arjuna, for all this detailed knowledge? With a single fragment of Myself I pervade and support this entire universe.


The Supreme Lord is represented throughout the entire material universes by His entering into all things as the Supersoul. The Lord here tells Arjuna that there is no point in understanding how things exist in their separate opulence and grandeur. He should know that all things are existing due to Kṛṣṇa's entering them as Supersoul. From Brahmā, the most gigantic entity, on down to the smallest ant, all are existing because the Lord has entered each and all and is sustaining them.

Most of what you have said here is an echo in my heart and soul.

When the elder child hurts me with her actions, I have to listen to the Universe itself telling me that I must let go, and allow her to learn this lesson. It is, of course, her choice.

Love can hurt when it involves allowing the other that is also one suffer the consequence of choice. It’s not like she is a true sociopath, she just wants to be.

Hmm, I say it and it almost makes no sense. But you understand don’t you?

The kitten get flashes of what is to come, and they are clearer than anything I get.

I try and get all the information I can, and then I must sit quietly and let everything attain no importance in order to hear what is being said to me. It seems to come to you so naturally, I would be jealous if I didn’t know the cost of what you have attained.

I’m getting there, the dust burns when it is purged from your soul.

So, I’ll just look at the bare spots on my tail, where the fur has burned away, and remember that Love is the manifestation of the breath of life that consciously permeates both the known and unknown in not just the universe, but the entire Multi-verse itself.

Wheels are chocked on the dumpster, dust is sweeping out of the alley, and my nose is still both cold and wet.

Here is something I've recently learned about love and fear. They produce the same exact physical feeling...that butterflies-in-your- stomach, flip flopping feeling. If you focus on it as will destroy you, but if you can convert it to love (through meditation and conscious acts of connection) you can change your personal world and the world of the people around you.

When I feel creeping fear...I learn to think of things I love: the magnificent ocean, the blue sky, the moon as clouds wisp across it; a wonderful piece of bread and butter...brought to my plate by the sun and rain on wheat and the people who tended it, ground it, baked it....the choices of things to love are endless. You don't try to fight the fear feeling; you focus on it intently and think of the things you will transform into a love feeling.

After my daughter had a terrible accident I lived in fear and dread...that adrenal sapping, stomach flopping fear....that her problems would get worse. It was eating me alive. I've learned to convert that feeling into one of pure love. It has taken work-- mediation to clear the fear images and learn to replace them; and a conscious effort to feel "grateful" for this amazing life on earth.

As a coincidence (at least with relation to this article) I have been busying myself by studying quantum mechanics (for the layman) and I find it fascinating. Though I will say LOL, IMHO there is more "faith" involved in quantum mechanics than in the world's religion.

As a last note, I most heartedly agree with the has married money and begun to produce tainted offspring. Perhaps its always been that way. The bottom line is...we are all on our own individual journeys and only we can find our own answers along the way, the choice of whether we enjoy the trip or not is our own.

On the other-hand electro-magnetic can both attract and repulse. The avatars of love are not only strung up by the money-changers. "Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred pence, and given to the poor?"

Maya has a veiling power and a projecting power. From our character comes aversion and attraction. The world within which we dwell as individuals, is both attractive and repulsive in turns.

I'm not saying this to be contrary for the sake of it, but the road to hell is paved with good intentions. A triumphal procession require the whisperer of mortality. Getting right with love may require a reversion to childlikeness, but until that grace is given, you are within the world and should weigh things correctly as much as is within your power. So fight Arjuna!

One word is too much profaned...

It might only be the microbiologists that know the universe is thought-born.

When your blood vessels and nerves are forming, it's more like they're materializing from another dimension. Microbiologists have defined a new power and call it "thought".

Why do so many microbiologists get asssassinated? I'd sure like to read or hear about their secrets.

Another reason Richard Thompson (Sadaputa Dasa Prabhu) was such an outstanding personality.

He specialized in probability theory, statistical mechanics, quantum physics and mathematical biology at the La Jolla Institute in San Diego, the State University of New York at Binghamton, and Cambridge University in the United Kingdom.

He wrote two books on Hindu cosmology, "Vedic Cosmography" and Astronomy (1989) and "Mysteries of the Sacred Universe" (2000).

In his final book, "Maya: The World as Virtual Reality" (2003), Thompson utilized virtual reality as a metaphor for the Hindu concept of maya.

Sadaputa Dasa was also hugely instrumental in the research and planning of the Temple of the Vedic Planetarium Mayapura Project.

To truly comprehend love, and lose ones self in its thrall, is something to court. Discerning the mundane from the munificently divine, sets you on an unworldly path. You become a seeker of deeper and yet deeper meaning, striving for the ultimate knowledge of self. The attraction for the paraphernalia of this world, diminishes. What you once considered reallity loses it solidity, everything becomes unified in the divinity of love.

Thank you Les for another deeply moving and connecting piece.

And then there's the alchemical metaphysics of intent becoming enamoured of self-reflection and its fabulous offer of endlessly not-quite. Till now. Till you! And what that means.
Completely core-splitting collisions to one and all.
Till the crucible within the cauldron delivers absence and presence as one in love.

Kind of crystallizes what that little old green guy said a long long time ago in a galaxy far far away .. This also exemplifies the need for a new level of thinking, on par with our human civilization's advancement and readiness to expand beyond our world which is surely our destiny, a responsibility to the underlying principles of existence itself and to its true meaning and the reason for it all, its true purpose. May the force be with you.

"Vedic Physics--The Nature of Space, Time, and Matter"

an excerpt:

We have been developing the idea that the three-dimensional continuum of our experience does not constitute the totality of spiritual or material reality. One feature of this idea is that there exist worlds, or realms of experience, which are located here on the earth, but which cannot be perceived or visited by human beings possessing ordinary sensory powers. Of course, the most striking example of this is Krishna's transcendental dhama of Vrndavana. In CC AL 5.18p it is stated that Krishna's abode is unlimited and all-pervading, and yet it is identical to the Vrndavana of this earth. This implies that within the tract of land called Vrndavana in India there exists a completely real realm of spiritual existence which is not accessible to the senses of ordinary conditioned beings. This is another example of higher dimensional connections, and it implies that two (or more) worlds of experience can co-exist in parallel, in the same location.

Lovely post.

feels like crapping, but the song for the negative is
Skyhooks, They Talk About Love On The Radio

something going through my mind reading that Hadron Collider link, that it was sometwhat naive or perfunctory, and stories of the 1960's love fest and some people feeling that the sex scene was compulsory. and that aint cool. and who was running the media in that pop era? they ran out of original soulful material to expoit. another song by the same band, Whatever Happened To The Revolution, We All Got Stoned And It Drifted Away.

Or back to the Hadron Collider Paul Simons Proof Is The Bottom Line For Everyone (well, many and most). Some things are bleeding obvious to open eyes, but I guess you gotta bleed some first.

Socrates, who believed in the immortality of the soul, was condemned to death, and upon being asked how he would like to be buried, replied, “First of all you may have to catch me.”

Among his students were Plato, Aristotle, Xenophon and Aristophanes.

Visible said...

Hmmmm, and all this time I thought that Aristotle was Plato's student.

Anonymous said...

Very true les.

Can't slip one by you, even inadvertently..

That being said, however, since Aristotle was a student of Plato, and Plato a student of Socrates, might Aristotle also be felt as a student of Socrates?

Could it not be said that Les Visible is, was or could be a student of Socrates?

Still, point taken and that you spoke up is proof you're paying attention. (wink wink)
