Infinity and Intellect

18 posts in this topic

*I am not here to argue. I am here to see where I went wrong in this contemplation*


 

If reality is infinite then all possibilities exist.

It must be possible, then, to comprehend the absolute with intellect.

If one cannot comprehend Absolute Truth within their intellect then all possibilities do not exist. 

Unless of course, one were to say that infinity is the possibility of infinite possibilities. But if everything is within the same absolute reality then there is no such thing as impossibilities in any “limited” reality other than the believed limitations. So within this current reality that I am experiencing i as a human can fly. 

But a limitation is that in this reality humans cannot fly. That would be a believed limitation. 

So likewise, in this current reality it is a believed limitation that one cannot intellectually comprehend the Absolute. Infinite possibilities suggest that it can be done.

It is....stop making a distinction between awareness and intellect. Then you can raise your awareness which will raise your intellect. Realize that you create a distinction between what is intellect and what isn't. Everything is an expression of an INFINITE INTELLECT, thus everything is intellect, thus awareness is INTELLECT.

So raise your awareness to infinity, and you can have an infinite intellect and understand everything.


You are a selfless LACK OF APPEARANCE, that CONSTRUCTS AN APPEARANCE. But that appearance can disappear and reappear and we call that change, we call it time, we call it space, we call it distance, we call distinctness, we call it other. But notice...this appearance, is a SELF. A SELF IS A CONSTRUCTION!!! 

So if you want to know the TRUTH OF THE CONSTRUCTION. Just deconstruct the construction!!!! No point in playing these mind games!!! No point in creating needless complexity!!! The truth of what you are is a BLANK!!!! A selfless awareness....then that means there is NO OTHER, and everything you have ever perceived was JUST AN APPEARANCE, A MIRAGE, AN ILLUSION, IMAGINARY. 

Everything that appears....appears out of a lack of appearance/void/no-thing, non-sense (can't be sensed because there is nothing to sense). That is what you are, and what arises...is made of that. So nonexistence, arises/creates existence. And thus everything is solved.

If a possibility exists, it is not a possibility anymore, it is just what exists.

If humans could fly, it would exist, and so you would say: the fact that we cannot fly is now a limitation. And so you have created a koan for yourself, where everything always seems to be limited no matter what. If either case exists, you perceive a limit. But how exactly are you perceiving limits in the first place? Perhaps it is the perception of "all possibilities that exist" that creates limitation and is itself limitation? How is possibility perceived, anyways? Where is it perceived from?

If humans that cannot fly do not exist, how is it possible to perceive a human which cannot fly as a limitation? Is it a limitation to not be something which does not exist? Is it infinite to be something that does not exist?


"God is not a conclusion, it is a sudden revelation. When you see a rose it is not that you go through a logical solipsism, "This is a rose, and roses are beautiful, so this must be beautiful." The moment you see it, the head stops spinning thoughts. On the contrary, your heart starts beating faster. It is something totally different from the idea of truth." -Osho

You can comprehend infinity with intellect. That's what God-Realization is.

But the human mind is not infinite intellect.


You are God. You are Truth. You are Love. You are Infinity.

Sure. In the realm of infinite possibilities anything goes. But intellectual comprehension of Absolute Truth/Infinity is a lot like imitation bacon. It may taste somewhat like the real thing but it's not. -RBDC

You can't think your way into enlightenment.

Lol. That's the plan, my friend. 


Thought = Time. Without thought there's no time. Death is the end of the illusion.

Do you think that a parallel universe like ours is possible, in which an exceptionally smart dog is born that creates a quantum computer with rudimentary means and programs an artificial intelligence that evolves exponentially, dominates humanity and forces all humans to implant a dog head that is barking in the hear of the human head constantly? 

Or would it be possible, if you type at random on a keyboard for an infinite amount of time, that you could write without a single error all the novels written by humanity, consecutively and in alphabetical order? 

In fact, if reality is infinite, both things should have happened an infinite number of times.

I would say that theoretically it is possible, but in practice infinity does not work like that, but who knows

I could fly in my dreams though.

Exactly, become aware there is no difference between flying and walking.

Human mind exist within infinite mind, and is dualistic by nature, that’s why it cannot have infinite comprehension. Because to have infinite intellect your mind needs to become infinity. 
 

human mind only exists because it is defined by limits, if it wasn’t, it wouldn’t be human mind, it would be infinite mind.

Even what Leo talks about with alien mind will still be within limits, just less/different.

Just because all distinctions are illusory does not mean they haven’t manifested and don’t exist.

it’s just that their nature as illusory is misunderstood.

just mentioning as I feel your tendency to explain everything in absolute tends to trip people up.

You can have an infinity without all possibilities. So this statement doesn't follow necessarily. As an example, imagine the infinitude of numbers starting from 1. Now take one random number out of it, say 3.  How many are left? Maybe reality doesn't have type a purple dog.

It's interesting to think about an infinity where all possibilities do exist. You'll come to the conclusion that there can only be one of them - because the infinity must include itself! And. if there is only one of them, then you must be in it - because if you weren't then it wouldn't be "accessible" to you. That's because if you can access that sort of infinity, then you must necessarily be part of it.

You can of course comprehend infinity with intellect - we're doing it here.

@Selfnaught i think humans can fly they just arent happy enough, make the soul anti gravity and it will lift the body. i think you can get so happy you start floating and then flying.

if we live in infinity you have to say humans can fly, there is no way around it it has to be possible

Humans needn't even have to fly in order to fly. Get a time machine, go forward 100 years, strap yourself in a virtual reality device connected to your brain, and voila! you not only can fly, but do whatever you want in whatever world you imagine. But it simply becomes another kind of porn.

@An young being  we are in one right now with a belief limitation that humans cannot fly, we created the boundary and forgot about our energy control. now we are unhappy but i have seen its possible for a human to get so happy you start to feel that you are going to start flying.

one time i fell asleep on my leg and i was pushing it down for like an 1 and when i got up it felt like my leg was raising in the air by itself from the releif of not being crushed. its kind like that feeling the soul it just raising up and with the entire body

The feeling of flying is truly a marvelous experience, both physically and emotionally!

Do it long enough and the leg will disappear from existence for quite sometime.

Infinity without all possibilities is unmanifest God...we call this deep sleep, or blanking out. So that already exists as well.
