Everyone is aware but not everyone is aware that they are aware.
Be interested in the experience of ‘Being Aware’ rather than the object or situation that you are aware of.
Having noticed the experience of ‘Being Aware’ or ‘Aware Being’, we may wonder about its nature.
What is the nature of the Awareness with which we are aware of our experience? The desire to know the nature of Awareness draws us ever more deeply into the experience of simply ‘Being Aware’ or ‘Awareness Itself’.
In time the desire to know its nature is gradually replaced by the love to simply be knowingly this presence of unlimited Awareness.
This presence shines in each of us as the experience ‘I am’ or ‘I am aware’.
Be aware of being aware.
In this Self-abidance the qualities of peace, happiness and love that are inherent in Aware Being or pure Awareness are gradually revealed.
This is a significant book published in a time of much interest in the topic of
afterlife. The value of the book lies in Ann Frazier West's consideration of afterlife
from two perspectives: Her own experiences relating to three personally significant
persons who have made "The Great Transition," and secondly, the relational way
of understanding the elements of consciousness which give all of us the tools for
our own experiential learning and approaches. Simple scientific concepts of
dimensionality and energy (frequencies) point to the interconnectedness of
this-life and after-life. With these holistic understandings, provided by modern
science and by teachers of consciousness, we (as has Ann) might overlay our unique
stories and participate in a life which discovers new perspectives, and brings more
fulfillment in the hectic present... Highly recommended as an experiential
supplement for those engaged in pursuing the Question..!
The story of Chaos begins in number, specifically in the mathematics and geometry of the fourth dimension. This is the home of Complex numbers and Fractal Geometry. Unlike the other dimensions - the first, second and third dimensions composed of the line, plane and solid - the fourth is the real world in which we live. It is the space time continuum of Man and Nature where there is constant change based on feedback. It is an open system where everything is related to everything else. Prior science and math was concerned with closed systems in the first, second and third dimensions. It emphasized "left brain algebra," and ignored "right brain geometry." Since Einstein, however, we know that even the third dimension - solid bodies - is just a model for reality, it does not really exist. We in fact live in the fourth dimension of the space-time continuum. Since Mandelbrot, we know what the fourth dimension looks like, we know the fractal face of chaos.

Simulation With streaming code and superfast computing we can now watch the amazing evolution of a galaxy..this is astronomy without observation.. With our senses and telescopic extensions we process light from vast distances..a method ancient and linear.. But now a method much more profound: black energy and light large and small scale a simultaneous dance embedded in code.. Might the question arise: is our code an image pointing to a grander Code...? polarityinplay... See www.illustris-project.org
From National Geographic:
Everyone loves cartoons, even cosmologists. They just call them simulations.
Now, one of the great triumphs of modern cosmology—our understanding of how the universe evolved its kaleidoscope of stars, worlds, and galaxies—has been visualized in its first realistic simulation:
“Until now, no single simulation was able to reproduce the universe on both large and small scales simultaneously,” Mark Vogelsberger of MIT and the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, who led the simulation team, says in a statement. Using a computer program, the team grew the virtual galaxies in simulated time, starting from 12 million years after the big bang (which kicked off about 13.8 billion years ago), they report in a study released this week by the journal Nature.
Named Illustris, the simulation built its universe out of 10 billion tiny cubes stuffed inside a virtual box measuring some 350 million light-years on each side.
Stuffed inside those cubes was simulated cosmological gas, which cooled, compressed, and formed filaments of galaxies that resemble ones seen today. As it evolved, its early cosmos resembled the real one, which is filled with small, energetic galaxies revealed by Hubble Space Telescope observations.
“If this all sounds somewhat complicated, do not be fooled: It is extremely complicated,” University of Maryland astronomer Michael Boylan-Kolchin, says in a commentary accompanying the study.
The simulation still has a way to go, Boylan-Kolchin adds, since it does not produce the biggest of black holes seen in the early universe or the dwarf galaxies that circle the Milky Way today. But thanks to the simulation, he says in the commentary, “creating a realistic virtual Universe of gas, stars, black holes and dark matter is already a reality. ”
The dead fledgling On a sidewalk a fateful fall.. Over this dead one two persons meet: One wishes a disposal quiet and away from trafficking feet.. The other with a kick and quick disregard of this morning moment's sudden dark streak.. A brief encounter two teachers on her path.. Each holding a mirror for the other...
So it is..whether through Advaita or other scripture..vital to learn of Consciousness as unmoving and as unmoved light..simply Aware of itself..then the reflection in our mirror.. providing light to see out there or in here.. but Wait!..we now see that there is nothing to see..that we have only named once again: Consciousness as experienced in our place.. but Wait!..we have no place...!
