We talk about consciousness, thought, time and the relationship between life and death.
Max Planck regarded consciousness as a fundamental component of the universe and matter as derived from it. Dr. Kuiken disagrees. He holds that a chosen distinction, a measurement, collapses the “wave function” yielding a triunity, like consciousness—distinction—matter. In other words, they all coexist, and there is no primacy of consciousness over matter or vice versa.
His studies of Sanskrit texts have lead him to equate consciousness with Self/self. This self is made of speech, mind and vital breath. The Self is free from evil, free from old age, free from death, free from sorrow, free from hunger, free from thirst, true in love, true in intention. It is to be searched for and wished to be known.
Gerard speaks of the paradoxical nature of existence and insights from properties of the QM singlet state. He takes a brief dip into Quantum Mechanics and states that entanglement and superposition are equivalent. Frankly, this is beyond my pay scale but perhaps some of my super well-informed listeners/viewers will get it.
Gerard proposes that without a limitation there is no existence and that the brain is the tool for setting up limitations and controlling the consciousness of differences. In this way, ‘man becomes aware of himself by limitation and experiences that as the awakening of his own world.
Time is part of the form world and the formless world is timeless, a formulation corresponding to insights from near-death and mystical experience. Life and death are complementary in the sense that in life, spirit is beyond space-time and substance is in space-time.
