The Resonant Universe

David Bohm once remarked, “ . . . if we know little about the workings of the human mind, we know considerably less about the workings of Universal Mind.” Is this a true statement? If a set is nested within a universe of discourse then knowledge regarding the nested set is knowledge regarding the universe of discourse; it would seem to me that we know more about the workings of Universal Mind. But when one is a mind within a mind and one is trying to discern the workings of mind it is often difficult to be mindful of just what mind one is discerning the workings of!
Apparently relative minds decohere to various degrees due to quantum noise. In the general case feedback loops in the form of quantum backaction conserve the noise and separation is maintained but in special cases the noise is silenced and separation disappears in coherent infinities. Everyone hears the noise, some more than others, but few there are who can withstand the onslaught of silence; it requires a consistent and disciplined practice. But the silence is the experience of the Mind beyond Universal Mind; call it the Silent Noise-maker. The noise erupts from silence . . .
Noise . . . before the silence I used to have friends, or the illusion of such. For certain I used to talk to people other than myself. They would even pretend to believe me; yeah, even when I was telling the truth! I don’t know what happened really; something about the silence. We all die and are born again, even Universal Mind. I try to tell people but no one will ever believe me; the second law is consistently violated in the return to silence.
Everything subsumed by no-thing is the ground of mental process. The process begins as a co-dependent arising, a duality, a distinction preserved by oscillating attention. This is the Breath of Brahman.
