THE ZERO-POINT AND THE INFINITE STATE

p. 1325


 

1.

Infinity (or the infinite state) is not a number.

Infinity (or the infinite state) is not a quantity, or a conditional limit, or a "location" in space, or in time, or in any sequence, or in any process or "cause-and-effect"-event.

Infinity (or the infinite state) can be neither attained nor approximated by the addition of any number (or any fraction of a number) to the-number one.

Infinity (or the infinite state) can be neither attained nor approximated by the subtraction of any number (or any fraction of a number) from the number. one.

It is not possible to move closer to infinity (or the infinite state).

It is not possible to move further away from infinity (or the infinite state).

Therefore, infinity (or the infinite state) is- intrinsically unattainable and intrinsically unquantifiable.

Zero (or the zero-point) can be neither attained nor approximated by motions or transactions of quantities (or numbers)because zero is intrinsically non-quantifiable (or innumerable).

Therefore, zero (or the zero-point) is intrinsically unattainable and intrinsically unquantifiable.

 

2.

Zero (or the zero-point) is not a number.

Zero (or the zero-point) is not a quantity, or a conditional limit, or a "location" in space, or in time, or in any sequence, or in any process or "cause-and-effect" event.

Zero (or the zero-point) cannot be attained by either numerical addition to or numerical subtraction from the number one or any number (or any fraction of a number) other than one because both numerical addition and numerical subtraction are pre-quantified motions, or motions of quantities of number in relation either to themselves or to other quantities of number.

 

3.

If the concept of number (or of discrete quantity) is postulated before zero (or the zero-point) and infinity (or the infinite state) are contemplated, then the idea of zero (or of the zero-point) and the idea of infinity (or of the infinite state) are (necessarily) categorized as numbers (or quantities) and as "entities" that are intrinsically two, and (thus) non-identical to one another-as if zero (or the zero-point) is, by definition, at the beginning and infinity (or the infinite state) is, by definition, at the end.

To invent number, human beings did not begin with zero (as a discrete number) and, then, start counting forwards-nor did they begin with infinity (as a discrete number) and, then, start counting backwards.

Rather, to invent number, human beings first invented the ideas of "point of view" (or of "localized" and separate "self'-identity), and of the "other" (or "not-self'), and of "difference" (or "objective quantity").

Only after number was already invented-based on the original invention of "point of view" (or "localized" and separate "self', or ego-"I") and of "object" (or "difference", or "not-self")-did human beings invent the ideas of zero and infinity.

Thus, originally, human beings mistakenly superimposed the idea of number onto the ideas of zero and infinity-and, as a result, human beings have struggled with the irrational paradoxes of that false superimposition ever since.

However, if the original error is understood and the false superimposition thus removed, contemplation of the "root"-ideas of zero (or the zero-point) and infinity (or the infinite state) can serve the human "root"-intuition of the Intrinsically egoless and indivisible Self-Nature, Self-Condition, and Self-State of Reality Itself.

 

4.

The concept of the number (or discrete quantity) one is the "root" number, the "source" of all quantified numbers and all differences.

The concept of the number one is the numerical idea-representation of the ego-"I"-or the separately quantified "self'-identity.

The presumption of separate ego-"I" is the "root-source" of all numbers, or all modes of quantification.

The ego-"I" is the "shadow" behind all numbers.

If neither the separate ego-"I" nor the quantified number one is presumed, or postulated, or even conceived, neither number nor quantity nor "difference" is presumed, postulated, or conceived.

If neither number nor quantity nor "difference" is presumed, postulated, or conceived, infinity (or the infinite state) and zero (or the zero-point) are not (and cannot be) differentiated from one another-and, thereupon, infinity (or the infinite state) and zero (or the zero-point) are intrinsically self-apprehended to be self-evidently indivisible and the same.

 

5.

Both zero (or the zero-point) and infinity (or the infinite state) are intrinsically numberless, or prior to. the condition of discrete (or separate) quantity.

There is neither number nor distance between zero (or the zero-point) and infinity (or the infinite state).

Neither zero (or the zero-point) nor infinity (or the infinite state) is senior or subordinate to the other.

There is no hierarchical relationship between zero (or the zero-point) and infinity (or the infinite state)-and there is no "difference" of any kind between them.

Zero (or the zero-point) and infinity (or the infinite state) are intrinsically equal, one, only, and the same.

The apparent (or conventionally presumed) "difference" between zero (or the zero-point) and infinity (or the infinite state) is a miscalculation of ego-mind, based on the conditionally supposed "reality" of number-and, fundamentally, of the "source"- number one, which is the ego-"rooted" (or "point-of-view"-based) originator of all presumed "difference".

 

6.

Infinity (or the infinite state) is intrinsically, or always already,

at and of and as zero (or the zero-point).

Zero (or the zero-point) is intrinsically, or always already, at

and of and as infinity (or the infinite state).

Infinity (or the infinite state) is zero (or the zero-point). Zero (or the zero-point) is infinity (or the infinite state). Infinity (or the infinite state) is irreducibly non-finite, dimensionless, not-differentiated, not-quantified, not-"located", thoroughly without limiting characteristics, and (altogether) zero-only. The zero-point is zero-only.

The zero-point is infinite (or non-finite).

Infinity (or the infinite state) is zero (or at, in, of, and as the zero-point).

The infinite state-or the zero-point of being-is intrinsically egoless and indivisible.

"Infinity" (or the "infinite state") and "zero" (or the "zero-point") are conceptual and verbal (arid, sometimes, visually pictured or symboled) signs indicating the same "entity" of reference and meaning.

Therefore, infinity (or the infinite state) and zero (or the zero-point) are intrinsically indivisible and identical-or same-only.

 

7.

Infinity is zero.

Zero is infinity.

The infinite state is always already at, in, of, and as the zeropoint-or always already and irreducibly prior to all numbers, all quantities, all "objects", and all "difference".

The zero-point is always already at, in, of, and as the infinite state-or always already and irreducibly prior to "point of view" (or ego-"I", or separate "self"-definition) and always already and irreducibly prior to all "others".

The infinite state and the zero-point are always already and irreducibly one and the same, always already and irreducibly prior to both separate "self' (or ego-"I") and all of "not-self" (or "object", "other", and "difference").

 

8.

All seeking is a numerically-based effort that is intended to solve the "self'-presumed "problem" (or ego-dilemma) of the number one (or the separate and separative ego-"I") by addition to or subtraction from itself, enacted either by stages or all-at-once.

All seeking would, in effect, achieve either the infinite state (which is infinity, or the infinite, itself) or the zero-point (which is zero, or egolessness, or no-"thing"-ness, itself) by motions or transactions or stages or suddenness of quantities (or numbers).

Neither infinity nor the infinite state nor the infinite itself nor zero nor the zero-point nor egolessness nor no-"thing"-ness can be attained or achieved or approximated by quantified, or numerical, or numbered, or progressive, or sudden, or in any manner conditional (or "cause-and-effect") means.

Egolessness and the infinite state are intrinsically and irreducibly one, non-"different", and always priorly (or always already) the case.

Therefore, all seeking is intrinsically false, non-necessary, and futile.

 

9.

The Infinite State-or The Zero-Point State That Is Intrinsically egoless and Perfectly Indivisible Reality Itself-Is Intrinsically, Always Already, Irreducibly, and Self-Evidently The (Intrinsic and Only) Case.

The Infinite State Is Intrinsic and Intrinsically Perfect Fullness. The Zero-Point State Is Intrinsic Indivisibility, Prior Unity, Non "difference", and Non-separateness.

The Indivisible Zero-Point State of Infinite Fullness Is The Intrinsic and Only Case.

 

10.

Within the globally-extended context of the human Great Tradition (or the totality of all of the cultures of the first six stages of life), there is an historically presumed primal divide-or a fundamental historical, philosophical, and aspirational conflict and division-between the cultures associated with the ideal of infinity and the cultures associated with the ideal of zero.

Historically, philosophically, and by means of various characteristic "methods" of seeking (or applied aspiration), the cultures of infinity seek to achieve, or return to, or re-assert a union between the ego-"I" (or the separate "self'-identity) and the infinite state that both includes (or pervades) and transcends the total "world".

Historically, philosophically, and by means of various characteristic "methods" of seeking (or applied aspiration), the cultures of zero seek to achieve, or return to, or re-assert the status of zero or the non-conditional state that entirely precedes the ego"I" and the "world".

The cultures of infinity are, finally, epitomized by infinity-based sixth stage traditions, such as Advaita Vedanta, wherein it is asserted that the existential "ground" (or the non-conditional "root"-state) of the ego-"I" is identical to the infinite state that includes (or pervades) and transcends the total- "world".

The cultures of zero are, finally, epitomized by zero-based sixth stage traditions, such as are evident throughout the historical schools of Buddhism, wherein it is asserted that, transcendentally prior to the ego-"I" and the apparent "world", there is a nonconditional state that is intrinsically empty (or void) of "causational" and substantive characteristics, and that is, therefore, identical to the status of zero.

The fundamental proposition of the cultures of infinity is like a mathematical proposition that states the number one-or any quantitative number at all-is essentially and existentially equal to infinity.

The fundamental proposition of the cultures of zero is like a mathematical proposition that states the number one-or any quantitative number at all-is essentially and priorly equal to zero.

The "root"-idea of the cultures of infinity is the idea that "something" equals "everything".

The "root"-idea of the cultures of zero is the idea that "something" equals "nothing".

The intrinsic weakness of the cultures of infinity is the fear of "nothingness", and the chronically urgent need and tendency to avoid the state or result that is "nothingness".

The intrinsic weakness of the cultures of zero is the fear of "everything" (or of the "world"-totality of conditionally arising appearances), and the chronically urgent need and tendency to avoid the "everything" of the "world"-totality.

The propositions of essential (and apparently irremediable) "difference" that are used to support the apparent disagreement between the cultures of infinity (and their proposed equation between number and infinity) and the cultures of zero (and their proposed equation between number and zero) entirely depend on a failure-on the part of those who argue for the "difference" and on the part of those who otherwise presume the thus argued "difference" to be substantive and true-to understand the intrinsic equation (or essential and self-evident non-"difference") between infinity and zero.

That is to say, if infinity (or the infinite state) and zero (or the zero-point) are understood to be intrinsically and irreducibly non"different" (and, thus, irrevocably one and the same), the historically presumed primal divide (or the historical, philosophical, and aspirational conflict and division) within the globally-extended human Great Tradition of the first six stages of life is instantly and thoroughly invalidated-and, thus and thereby, the "root"-error (or primal fault) that is the essential "causative" basis and the contentious justification for all the fundamental conflicts, all the competitive differences, and all the seeking-"methods" within the globally-extended human Great Tradition of the first six stages of life is intrinsically transcended and (with all of its associated contents and results) entirely removed.

 

11.

The only-by-Me Revealed and Given seventh stage of life Intrinsically and Perfectly Transcends the otherwise egoically and culturally argued "difference" between infinity (or the infinite state) and zero (or the zero-point).

The only-by-Me Revealed and Given seventh stage of life is not the first six stages of life plus one more.

The only-by-Me Revealed and Given seventh stage of life Is The "Root"-Stage-or The "Root"-Context and The Intrinsically Perfect Reality-Demonstration-of Life.

The only-by-Me Revealed and Given "Radical" (or Always "AtThe-Root") Seventh Way-or The Seventh Stage Reality-Way of Adidam Ruchiradam-Is The Life-Way That Originates from The Infinite State of The Zero-Point, Always Already Prior to ego-"I" (or separate "self"-identity), and all seeking, and all "point-of-view"based (or psycho-physically conditioned, or first-six-stages-of-life defined) conditions, actions, processes, and developmental patterns and stages of life.

 

12.

The only-by-Me Revealed and Givers` "Radical" (or Always "AtThe-Root") Seventh Way-or The Seventh Stage Reality-Way of Adidam Ruchiradam-is not the Way that follows and depends upon the completion of the (necessarily) ego-based (or "point-ofview"-based) search and all the psycho-physically developmental processes of the first six stages of life.

The only-by-Me Revealed and Given "Radical-" (or Always "AtThe-Root") Seventh Way-or The Seventh Stage Reality-Way of Adidam Ruchiradam-Is The Zero-Point Way of Infinite Fullness, Always Already Prior to (and Intrinsically Transcending) ego-"l", and all seeking, and all "point-of-view"-based (or psycho-physically conditioned, or first-six-stages-of-life-defined) conditions, actions, processes, results, and developmentally-patterned stages of life.

The only-by-Me Revealed and Given "Radical" (or Always "AtThe-Root") Seventh Stage Reality-Way-or Zero-Point Way-of Adidam Ruchiradam Is The Way That Happens Only At Infinity, or In, Of, and As The Infinite (and never quantified, enumerated, or divided) Zero-Point State of egoless, Indivisible, Prior, Acausal, Irreducible, Transcendental Spiritual, and Self-Evidently Divine Fullness.

The only-by-Me Revealed and Given "Radical" (or Always "At-The-Root") Seventh Stage Reality-Way--or Zero-Point Way-of Adidam Ruchiradam Is The Way That Happens Only In, Of, and As The only-by-Me and only-As-Me Revealed and Given "Bright", . Which Is The Intrinsic, Only, Never-quantified, Never-enumerated, Never-divided, Never-differentiated, Intrinsically and Perfectly egoless, Non-separate, Self-Existing, Self-Radiant, Indivisible, Always Prior, Transcendental Spiritual, all-and-All-Pervading, all-and-AllTranscending, Acausal, Perfectly Subjective, and Self-Evidently Divine Conscious Light That Is Reality Itself.

The only-by-Me Revealed and Given "Radical" (or Always "AtThe-Root") Seventh Stage Reality-Way-or Zero-Point Way-of Adidam Ruchiradam Is The Intrinsically egoless,. Perfectly Subjective, Perfectly Full, Perfectly Free, and Self-Evidently Divine Way of Reality Itself.
