Chapter 9 - THE NO-EXISTENCE OF SPACE

By Paul Twitchell

The old traveler, Rebazar Tarzs, didn't spend much time in getting into his dialogue this morning after my arrival. He seated himself and began talking.

"Now the next phase of ECK, that mystical philoso- phy quite unknown to the religions of this earth world and hardly at all to most of its mystics, pertains to matter, space and time.

"Space and time are joint or rather twin aspects of the whole; they are actually members of a materialistic team known as MEST, which when broken down are: Matter, Energy, Space and Time. These constituents are those which make up the physical world the Pinda, and are represented in the Occult as that of man's physical body. This is the last frontier of Soul, or the lowest to be exact.

"We are discussing matter, space and time in this talk. Energy has been somewhat covered, but it will get full coverage in the next chapter.

"In the beginning let me point out that space actu- ally has no existence. It is hardly anything but a nothingness, a huge hole filled with spiritual energy, the ECK. It is nothing, apart from our perception of objects and time means nothing, apart from our experience of events.

"Space appears merely as a fiction created by man's own mind an illegitimate extension of the nature of subjective concepts which help us to understand and describe the arrangements of objects as seen by us, while time appears as a secondary fiction serving a

197

similar purpose for the arrangement of events which happen to us. Time and space are both maya in the modern study of physics and also in philosophy. They are not the same under all circumstances. They are more subjective ideas than objective facts.

"Man's knowledge of the external world cannot be divorced from the nature of the faculties with which we have obtained physical knowledge. The truth of the law of gravitation cannot be regarded as subsisting, apart from the experimental procedure by which we ascertained the truth. Imagine yourself alone in the midst of nothingness and then try to tell me how large you are. It is literally impossible.

"Here are some of the things which you must know about so-called space. First, a straight line may not necessarily be straight; second, a ray of light has weight; third, space is curved; fourth, the universe, even the Pinda world, is boundless yet finite; five, mind creates matter and matter creates space.

"Sixth, every sentient (meaning every experience of sensation and feeling) being is capable of constructing its own universe. Seventh, space and time are not reali- ties. There is no fundamental entity called space exist- ing in itself in which the world is placed, nor is there any fundamental line in which an event occurs. Out of an observer's temporal experience, is constructed time, and out of the same time is constructed space. But there is no underlying time or space with which these can conceivably be correlated. Thus the universe and its creator are neither in time nor space. Eighth, the shortest straight line is an infinite affair. Ninth, the universe is infinite, yet paradoxically small, and tenth, atoms are world systems.

"Eleventh, world systems are atoms. Twelfth, the

19R

mind of man is truly omnipresent because all time and space is present in it. Thirteenth, physical qualities in general have no absolute values, only relative to chosen frames of references or codes. Fourteenth, space, time and the physical world of substances have no objective reality, apart from the mental concepts of them that man creates in his mind. Fifteenth, nothing is real except what is in our consciousness and percep- tion, and this, when relative, creates an illusion. Six- teenth, when we view ourselves in space and time, we are quite obviously distinct individuals. When we pass beyond space and time we form ingredients of a contin- uous stream of the sound current, and seventeenth, everything is relative to human perception. There is no space which is positive, for it is nothingness. Therefore one man's mind is negated by another. Even the trav- elers, the saints, sometimes do not like the works of another member of their group. Everyone has his own measures.

"One more point to make on this subject. The pic- ture of an electron as a point in space and time fails completely. It has wave-like characteristics, therefore it is called a wavicle,

"An event has many sizes relative to the correspond- ing standpoints. There are as many imaginary worlds as there are observers with varying interests and pur- poses, and these worlds appear to change in accordance with the subjective changes in the life of those who experience them.

"When we discard our human spectacles entirely, we find that light and sound are neither waves nor par- ticles. Speaking philosophically, the SUGMAD is neither the Satguru nor the Nirguna, but has the nature of all things.

199

"When a jiva, or student, as a particle approaches the ECK, he appears to be the SUGMAD, or Satguru. When the student approaches him in the form of a wave by means of self-knowledge, he appears to be the Nirguna, or negative-self. There can be no separation between waves. The nature of light and sound is such that they behave as waves in empty space but like bullets as soon as light encounters matter.

"Soul appears as negative when It sees something other than Itself. Physical space is a matter of infer- ence and construction. The account of an animal given by examining an animal's movements is only an event in the animal's life. The same is the case with events in a man's life. Relativity proves this by equations.

"It has been established that separate component parts of a uniform system of bodies maintain the same position in relation to one another as though the sys- tem was stationary. Thus, things inside a swiftly moving railroad coach behave in exactly the same way as when the coach is standing still. In reality, things bear their own measure in themselves and to find the measure of things is to understand illusion, or maya.

"The smallest electron and the largest world which exists, apart from our study of it is senseless. The idea that perception in itself reveals the character of objects is a fond delusion. All that exists is what it is, and this only within the limits of a certain and very small scale. On the spiritual and psychic scale, i.e., from another viewpoint, it becomes something.

"The smaller the reference body, or the reference sys- tem, the smaller the world. Space, or nothingness is proportionate to the size of the reference body and all the measurements of space are proportionate to the measurements of the measurement of the reference

200

body. By annihilating somebody's life or mind, his world-experience is annihilated; by the destruction of a jar, that jar's space is annihilated.

"Our measurements are never of space and time but only of the things and the events that occupy space and time. My time measurements depend ultimately on my space measurements and the latter on my ideas of simultaneous action. You depend on your reading of simultaneity in precisely the same way.

"If you built nine boxes of the same measurements but different in forms they would occupy the same space and time, and would be the same objects yet appearing to be different to different observers. In the same way one and the same world appears to be dif- ferent to different observers. Therefore, every observer lives in his own imaginary world.

"In a dream-experience, earth, roads, mountain sur- face, denote only forms of empty space; so, in the waking experience also, they are forms of empty space, depending on the position of the observer.

"I, you, he or she are also imaginary forms of waking experience. For instance, a mare cannot become the wife of a man, and woman can't become the wife of a horse, although the mare and woman are both feminine characters. As the waking condition destroys the dream completely, the condition of self-realization destroys the waking experience completely. The body of the observer is also a product of thought just as it happens in dreams.

"For each frame of reference there is a scale of length and a scale of time. Whether a body has taken up energy or not, depends upon the position of his obser- vation. All we need to know is the relation of the other fellow's space and time standards to our own. This is

201

the first thing relativity teaches us. All measures are correct for the time and for the space selected, but one relative measure cannot be applied to understand all events. Therefore, when one thinks that the whole world must move according to his ideas, he assumes a false position. Other persons are also right from their point of view of that time.

"It is hard to give a satisfactory explanation of the theory of space and time in popular language, because the language itself is based on old condepts. All the student can do is become familiar with the new con- cepts, just as a child gets used to the simple relations and qualities he meets until he understands them. Understanding really means nothing in the world except familiarity and getting accustomed to the con- cepts.

"The first postulate of nothingness may be illus- trated by the familiar difficulty of determining whether a slowly moving train, one is sitting in, or an adjacent one, is in motion. The passenger has either to wait for bumps or accelerations, or he has to look out at some adjacent object which he knows to be fixed, before he can decide if he's moving.

"The second principle is an obvious consequence of the wave theory of light and sound. Just as waves in water once started by a ship travel through the water with a velocity independent of the ship, so, waves in nothingness travel onward with speed bearing no rela- tion to that of the body which originated them.

"Leave off here."

"Okay, now for the second session on the no-exis-

202

tence of space.

"Before starting in on the deeper part of the subject, let me divert to a favorite topic, the fad which man has taken up and tried to work out to form around it a reli- gionthis is reason.

"Reason is a senseless sort of argument that every- thing works out from logic or deduction according to what the senses make of it. The definition of reason is that it's a statement offered as an explanation or justi- fication of an act or procedure. It's a consideration, motive or judgment inducing or confirming a belief, influencing the will, and leading to an action.

"It is a ground or cause, the reality which makes any fact intelligible to the senses of man. It is supposedly the materialistic power of comprehending, of inferring, of intellectualizing.

"It is to work out, think out, figure out, analyze or conclude about something.

"This is reason. The very thing which Thomas Aquinas, the Catholic founder of Christian philosophy, used to deduct theological thought and start a medieval drive toward the worst piece of thinking in all history. Man has certainly suffered because of his reasoning which is based upon false premises.

"Today this fad has been split into two warring fac- tions, the intellectuals versus the anti-intellectuals. The intellectuals, who are supposedly endowed with unusual mental capacity, versus the anti-intellectuals, who don't believe in intellectualism.

"Now the followers of intellectualism believe in the doctrine that knowledge is derived from pure reason; also, the doctrine that the ultimate principle of reality is reason.

"The anti-intellectuals believe in the doctrine of anti-

203

reason; opposing the intellectual theory, they believe in the doctrine of non-reason. This is a faith in the higher senses, the senses of Soul that make contact with the sound current and become a part of it.

"The reasonists are those who follow Francis Bacon, Descartes, Hegel, Aristotle and others. These are the ones whom the Catholic Church have established as their leaders in the field of thought and metaphysics, thus forming the intellectualism of the church as a basic philosophy. They are: Aristotle, Aquinas, Bernard, Pascal, and a few hundred others who put a materialistic slant to the church's metaphysical theory called Ontonology, which is supposedly the science of reality; the branch of knowledge that investigates the nature, essential properties, and relations of being.

"The anti-reasonists are those whom we normally know as the spiritual travelers. They are followers of the doctrine of directly receiving from the SUGMAD and ITS counterparts, the Silent Ones, and of course the ECK. Within spirit or ECK, the great sound current, are the properties of the SUGMAD Wisdom, Power and Freedom. These are supposedly given to all who will seek them, if they are willing to take the trouble of using the proper techniques of the spiritual exercises.

"The knowledge gained from separating Soul from the body, and moving about in what we know as the Nuri-Sarup, the light body, isn't concerned at all with the reasoning of the mind. Soul learns quickly that It can gain more in fifteen seconds, of knowledge, health, power and freedom, when submerged in the divine, cosmic sound current than by years of trying to reason out something by Its intellect.

"This reasoning out process introduced by the

204

Jesuits in the Catholic Church has completely created a racial aberration among the homo sapiens of this earth plane. Often it looks like a huge, gigantic plot to trap all exposed to what is known as education. Nothing could be further from the real facts.

"Intellectualism is really a trap established by the Kal Niranjan for the Tuza. So many are falling for it, because materialistic education seems to be the only way to knowledge.

"Now I've given this to you for the reason of show- ing that the materialistic sciences which are a part of intellectualism are a trap to gather all attention to their discoveries. These are, as you know, nothing in comparison with what an ECK traveler knows.

"Take for example what happened a few years ago when the Nobel prize was given to a pair of American scientists at Princeton University for the discovery of the rotation of the atom; clockwise to the right for posi- tive action, and counter clockwise for negative action. When announced through the newspapers, the theo- sophical society members pointed out that Annie Besant, their renowned leader, had said this in a large number of her books in 1880, and again early in this century. She was a spiritual traveler.

"All this is concerned with space. The intellectuals are vastly overconcerned with spacebut the travelers are not. It is an open hole of nothingness. To the latter, there is hardly a piece of space anywhere. Everything is loaded with atoms, Tuzas and spiritual things, the heavenly wonders.

"The intellectuals are concerned with emptiness, and they are loaded with other materialistic projects made by the hands of men, like human beings living in some housing project, or in the great, empty beehives of

205

cities.

"Now, to the intricacies of nothingness again.

"The wave picture, which I spoke about in my last session, begins to appear as the true picture of reality and the particle picture merely a clumsy object, an approximation of the truth, an approximation obtained by trying to cram force into a frame work of space and time, into a structure which does not admit representation in space and time.

"A wave starts from a moving particle or group of particles growing greater as it moves into the layer of upper strata. As one and the same substance appears from one point of view as a particle and from another as a wave, it is now called wavicle in the language of the spiritual travelers.

"Observers describe events by measures of times and distances made with regard to their frameworks of references. Therefore, such things as length, velocity, energy, momentum are not absolute but relative, Le M they are not attributes of the physical reality but rela- tions between the observer and what he observes. Con- sequently, the observed objects are not laws of the physical world but of the observed phenomena. Einstein found that the concepts of length between points in nothingness or events in time didn't as we supposed, represent an intrinsic property of the points or the events. Like direction, it is merely a relation whose value changes with the observer's position relative to the object.

"As we cannot ascertain the position and the veloc- ity of an electron at the same time, it is impossible to compute the future path of the electron. Any interfer- ence on our part would change the position of the elec- tron. Everything depends on how you look at it. The

206

visual image will endure as long as we do not change our standpoint, and thus it differs from hallucination. Matter has really a wave structure. Therefore, it will change in quite a definite way when we change our standpoint in regard to it.

"A vista of miles may be represented by an expert artist on a small canvas so that if a man would make an effort to suppress the usual idea of extension and would look at the painting intently, he will perceive the scenes actually extending into miles. No matter how minute the picture on a paper may be, we always feel it to be like its original, so long as the mutual proportion of its contents is in harmony.

"This is also the case in dreams. Extension of space, in dreams and the waking state, is nothing real in itself apart from the mind of the observer. Mathematically, many different kinds of space are conceivable.

"One of the remarkable outcomes is that the differ- ence between a wave and a particle is disappearing. This has to do with something that is neither, and yet shares the properties of both. The difference between a wave and a particle is one of degree, rather than of kind. A group wave of a certain frequency may appear to us as if it were a moving particle of given energy. But it is a clumsy picture. The particle picture tells us that our knowledge of an electron is indetermined. The wave picture, the electron itself, is also indetermined.

"The particle picture assumes that an objective uni- verse exists outside ourselves and tries to depict this objective universe, while the wave picture tries to depict our knowledge of the universe as experienced by us. The wave picture is a picture of knowledge, not of things.

"The mass of an electron is not constant but is a

207

function of its speed, and this again depends on the observer's system of reference. In each mass phenom- ena where many observers are in the same condition, the statistical laws appear all the more clearly, with the greater number of individuals that cooperate in the phenomena.

"In such cases, we get many pictures but it will be hard to realize that the two very different shadow pic- tures are projections of the same object. Accordingly, nothing that varies for different observers can be fundamentally true.

"As stated before, the wave picture provides a repre- sentation, not of an objective nature but only of our knowledge of nature. The same electron may be repre- sented by two different wave pictures, not because it is itself different in the two cases, but because our knowl- edge of it is different in both cases.

"All right. This is enough for now!"

"Now we'll get started again," said Rebazar Tarzs slowly sitting down on the hard floor again.

"One of the things that is much talked about in spir- itual circles is intuition. This is the power of knowing, the power of obtaining knowing without the senses, without recourse to the inference of reasoning; an innate, instinctive knowledge.

"This faculty is connected with the no-thing uni- verse. Ordinarily it is supposed to mean inner- teaching, inner instruction as given by some kind of higher inner self.

"The word intuition means however to look in, to gaze into, see and understand immediately. To know

208

by looking inwardly. In other words to project oneself by looking inwardly and understanding immediately what it is we are seeking. In order to understand the no-thing universe we must rely on intuition, as all ECK travelers do. It is started by joining, or hooking up the forces between Soul within you and the no-thing world within, and without. The working together of the sub- jective self with the forces of the no-thing world will start working out the kinks between this region and you.

"The forces of the no-thing world will begin to suggest the right course for the outer to take, reason over and adapt for use. The object is to bring the two faculties into balance and give the forces of the no- thing world the edge but nothing too much, for it would be quite unreasonable to let this faculty rule you completely in this matter-real world; yet on the other hand it knows far more about straightening out the problems of life than you would ever know.

"The idea is not to follow it blindly. Learn to pay attention to it and then use what information it brings to your attention. You have use of it at anytime, any- where. It's only that the power of the no-thing world is there and must be used whenever you need it.

"What actually happens is that you can furnish the channel for it to flow through your life and when that channel is open, when there is nothing blocking it- that higher-inner faculty can function readily to tell you something which can't be gained from any amount of outer, man made logic or reasoning.

"Intuition doesn't use words. It existed long before language was invented, and that is why we are cut off, as it were, from our inner selves. We have gone farther down into matter than the inner self has and it can

209

only talk to us when we furnish it with a channel for the no-thing forces to work through.

'The some-thing forces will fight to keep the inner forces from flowing through. The objective will assert itself. You must have a free mind and no upsets going at the time you wish to use it. Any quarrels or argu- ments will upset the workings of this inner force.

"When you can put the outer to work under the intu- ition forces and coordinate them together, they will give you a guidance such as you've never had before. The objective misses too much when working alone, especially the help the subjective could give; and the subjective working alone has not a firm hold on the outer world without good training.

"It takes a lot of training to get the inner forces working through you, especially to open the channel and keep it free from the obstacles and aberrations which might clog it. No one will understand this until they start traveling on the path upward into the Far Country.

"Intuition is a basic faculty on this plane. At the foundation of matter lies illusion, a form of perception. When we see or feel ourselves in the world of four dimensions, we shall see that the world of three dimen- sions does not really exist and never existed. It was the creation of our own fantasy, a phantom ghost, an optical illusion, a delusion, anything one pleases to call it except reality.

"The phenomenal world is simply our incorrect per- ception of the world. When a man dreams he begins to be conscious of the fact that he is asleep, and that what he sees is a dream, then he wakes up; also Soul, beginning to be conscious of the fact that all visible life is a dream, approaches its awakening.

210

"Bertrand Russell said, 'When one cosmic time and one persisting space are abolished, we have space-time instead. Our notion of the world structure is changed. There is no cosmic time. We must give up the idea of bodies moving and the talk of events. The unity of a body is the unity of its history, like the unity of a time. Our aspects and interpretations of the universe are constructions of the mind of man. If we could intuit ourselves and other things as they really are, we should see ourselves in a world of spiritual natures, our connection with which we didn't begin at our birth and will not cease with the destruction of the body/

* 'Space, or no-thingness is a quality of Soul. The Tuza exists everywhere but through ignorance limits itself to a certain region. Evil consists in transforming something great into something small. We have to remove an obvious limitation.

"All phenomena traveling past us with the velocity of light is called radiation, while the localized events which travel much more slowly or not at all, is called matter. All may be, fundamentally and equally, of the nature of etheric waves. The question is sometimes raised, how would things be regarded by an observer who is himself traveling with the velocity of light? To answer this question, it is pointed out that all things would appear equal. In other words they would appear to be standing still.

"The distinction between ourselves and the outside world is only arbitrary, a practically convenient divi- sion between one type of sense impression and another. The group of sense impressions, forming what I term myself, is only a small subdivision of the vast world of sense impressions when involved in the body matter. Obviously, the distinction is only a practical one. The

211

color and form which constitutes for us the needle are just as much sense impressions within us, as the pain produced by its pricks.

"The old dualism of mind and matter, which was mainly responsible for the supposed hostility, seems likely to disappear, not through matter becoming in anyway more shadowy or unsubstantial than hereto- fore or through mind becoming resolved into a function of the working of matter, but through substantial matter resolving itself into a creation and manifesta- tion of mind.

"Our ordinary thoughts have become space-time bound and can get no grip on concept outside space and time. Our space-time framework proves inade- quate for the representation of the whole of nature, or even of this lower world. Therefore, there is absolute necessity for us to secure a state of absence of all thoughts, Nirvikalpa Samadhi, what I call deep trance, in order to experience truth.

"When war breaks out, many men are ready to die for their country. By this, their space-sense somewhat increases, and yet the space sense does not increase sufficiently because the people of other countries remain as their enemies.

"Those only are the wisest men who live for the whole world by loving all the SUGMAD's creatures. Then, the space-time sense is perfect and whole. They have overcome the otherness. They enjoy the fullness of full- space sense. Those who are selfish must die for their country in order to develop this nothingness sense. The spiritual travelers who are unselfish and wise will live for the good of all the SUGMAD's creatures. Spir- itual wisdom develops in man the full nothingness sense.

212

"The will to wisdom is of greater value to humanity than the will to power of the aggressive man.

"The no-space, the nothingness sense depends on the system of reference and the nature of the co-ordinates used.

"If we, who have traveled into the Far Country, told this openly we would be the damned. By this I mean the excluded. Some spiritual travelers have possession of data which is terrible in its aspects to mankind. I say only the travelers know and hold such knowledge.

"The ECK traveler must remain almost silent in this world. The reason being that whenever he speaks, his words are greeted with wild shouts and screams from orthodox religions. The old, invulnerable metaphysical systems, such as Buddhism and Catholicism shake to their foundations. The priests and gurus of all teach- ings flout and taunt and jeer at the travelers' presence.

"All religions, all philosophical systems, all cosmog- onies are created to explain the obvious teachings of life and things. But they have failed, just like we see in the explanation of the no-thing universe versus the some-thing universe.

"Leave off here for a spell."

"To complete this discussion is my promise this afternoon/' said Rebazar Tarzs, as a stretch of sun- light beamed through the window and fell upon his shoulder like a bright ribbon of gold. "I'll finish this subject on the no-existence of space, and tomorrow will give you another aspect of the world of the SUGM AD.

"Now the way to the Far Country is through the no- thing universe for all human beings. They must cross

213

the land of nothingness in order to get into the first plane, the Astral region.

"In this region of nothingness, the super-physical regions, are the Sun Worlds, Moon Worlds and the Lightning Worlds. These worlds lie between this phy- sical plane and the astral region. They are merely sub- planes, well described by the Vedas and later the Vedantists who took those scriptures seriously enough to consider them as some of the super superior worlds.

"They really are not very high, but they are worlds of nothingness which the ECK traveler must cross to reach the first pure plane of the astral region.

"The spirit body moves something like this in its journey upward. It leaves the body through the tenth door, the spiritual eye, in the subtle body. At first, Soul looks out through this door, and eventually It goes through it and leaves the body completely. It then steps out into a new world which It has never seen before. This new world will probably be some subplane of the astral zone, but it. is a new dimension to SouL

"There is in this greater universe an almost endless series of sets of dimension, one above the other, like the three dimension world in which we live here, reach- ing up to the highest worlds. Each set is separated from the one just above it by the difference in the sub- stances, the fineness or coarseness of particle and the different rates of vibrations.

"These differences make one set of dimensions invis- ible to people living in another set, because the eyes of people inhabiting one region will have a limited range of vision, making it impossible for them to see a region much above or much below their own region, to which they have been adapted. This is the reason we cannot see the astral worlds by or through the physical eyes.

214

"With the astral eyes, we can see on that plane just as well as we can see on the physical plane with the physical eyes. So, too, with the still higher worlds. With each higher world, or set of dimensions, the light and the beauty increase materially, also the happiness of the inhabitants.

"At the sublime moment when the traveler steps out into the higher world, he begins to realize that he has acquired a vast increase of powers, as well as joy. It appears to him, and it is a fact too, that he can do almost anything he wishes to do. Not only has he increased his powers, but his knowledge and under- standing have expanded proportionately.

"At this time, the whole material universe appears as an open book to him, and all dark mysteries have vanished. He finds himself in possession of all knowl- edge of these lower worlds. He now knows them and has power over them. From here on up, each world gained, gives one complete knowledge and power over the world below him.

"The traveler is now free to proceed on his way to still higher zones. He may not allow himself to be unduly detained in order to enjoy the new world he has just entered. He must proceed always upward, for there will be no ending of the worlds he is seeking.

"Between the physical and the pure astral planes, there are many sub-planes. Vedantic pundits speak of the Sun Worlds first. Then come the Moon Worlds. After that, numerous sub-zones, and finally what Vivekananda calls the Lightning Worlds. This corres- ponds to the plane of the Sahasra-dal-Kanwal, as it is known to the travelers. It is commonly referred to as the astral region. It is full of light and far more beauti- ful than this world of the earth.

215

"It is the region which is commonly considered by many yogis as the supreme heaven. This is as high as they are able to ascend as a rule. The lord of that region they regard as the Supreme Being is only the Kal Niranjan, or Brahm. The travelers speak of him as Kal Niranjan, while most Hindus think of him as Brahm, the supreme God. He is, in fact, regarded as the supreme being by nearly all religions, because they know of nothing higher. Only the great travelers know of the higher regions and the higher deities, on up to the SUGMAD, out of whom all others come.

"At a point between the Sun Worlds and the Moon Worlds and the pure Astral zone, the travelers enter a zone called Ashta-dal-Kanwal. At that point some- thing happens which changes the whole course of his life and also his method of procedure.

"It is the meeting with his own teacher, a superior, experienced spiritual traveler in his radiant form. This is the traveler's Nuri-Sarup or light form. It is your Chiva, or Guru, appearing just as he does in physical life, except that his body is now much more beautiful and full of light, brilliantly illuminated.

"The Chiva receives the neophyte traveler with a cordial welcome and from that moment on the two are never separated throughout the journey to still higher regions, until the neophyte reaches the fifth region, the Sat Nam world. By now he is experienced and can travel upon his own.

"So you see that the Lord of this world, Kal Niran- jan, is almost on the human level. He is the God of the no-thing universe, what we are calling space. He is the space God, which the Christians worship, and seem to look for in the sky, a god over the world of nothing- ness.

216

"Man cannot conceive of this space world, nor of a space god, for he has personalized his god and made him the protector of his household, life and controller of his events. He doesn't realize that when he prays to a space god, of the nature that I speak about, he is praying to a no-thing to create for him something, or bring about changes in his affairs.

"This stupidity is never recognized, for man is beyond his capacity when getting into the worlds beyond the something plane. It is for certain that he cannot get some-thing out of no-thing, and space just doesn't exist for him, nor anything else.

"Now everything including the Kal Niranjan, God of this universe, is the narcissus, the unconscious beauty of the universe, in the minds of minds. It is the instinct of the Kal to act to exploit the ego. Exhibitionism is the eternal law of what is called evolution. Autoscopy, narcissism and exhibitionism are the motives for all movements throughout the universe.

"Even the genius, the most non-adaptable, who is always at war with his environment, is the great pea- cock, the show-off and the self-loved individual.

"The principle of this is 'that whatever exists desires an audience/ In everything, including the Kal, and if you do not believe this, read all the holy scriptures, the desire to be seen and loved is most prominent. Every- thing and everyone desires to tell its story. Of course, this includes the travelers.

"Here is where Soul arrives at self-realization.

"You, yourself, are the supreme one in this universe. You are the Kal. You are matter and spirit; being more matter than spirit, you are mainly the Kal. You are always strutting before the pride of humility that dom- inates you. Your modesty is a secret self-kissing exhi-

217

bition in the mirror of self-love. Love yourself says the law of nature. I mean by this; love your Tuza and you love the Kal.

"The metaphysical basis of exhibitionism is the strange and incomprehensible inner urge of expression, which is tied into the no-thing universe, space. Theol- ogy expresses this urge for exhibitionism. Philosophy expresses it as noumenon becoming phenomenon, exer- cising an illusion in nothingness.

"Kal invents mirrors. The spaceless seek space in which to move and survey, for space is the ballroom, the peacock alley of the invisible,

"Curse Kal and you are cursing yourself. Praise Kal and you are praising yourself. Thus the Kal, which all mystics and priestcraft oppose, is the inventor of theologies, cosmologies and divine events, with peals of laughter ringing from his throat at their ignorance.

"Even Buddha, who drew the sword against life, came to teach the world that there had better be no world. His cameras were the eyes and ears of his dis- ciples.

"Many seek to become the supreme exhibitionist. Strip away the mask of all earthly dictators and there you will find Kal strutting like the peacock.
