Power of Spiritual Oneness !!

This is a small number crunching exercise. This is for all those little Pythagoreans. We have all learnt the concept of raising a number to a power in our mathematics classes in our childhood, but somehow, missed the mystery. Let us watch the following:

 21 = 2, 22 = 4, 23 = 8, and so on .....  41/2 = 2, 81/3 = 2, 161/4 = 2, and so on .....  2-1 = 1/2, 2-2 = 1/4, 2-3 = 1/8, and so on .....

What does this concept of raising a number to a power indicates? It indicates that when we raise a number to a power it again gives us some other number, either big or small, depending on the number it is raised by. That is, the power of that number is either increased or decreased, depending on the power of the number raised by. And this is an external power or outer power because it depends on the power of that outer number.

Let us also look at the following possibility:

20 = 1 (One, Universal Number, Unity or Oneness)

The above indicates that if a number is raised to a power of zero (Shunya, a metaphysical void), the result is 1. The result is one, unity or oneness. This
one, unity or oneness is a divine number. Even in Mathematics this number One is considered as an Universal Number. That is, if we are raised to the power of Shunya or nothingness, we become one, a unity or oneness. This is the result of an inner power and not an external or outer power. That is, if we attain to the inner power, we become one with the Universe or we simply become Universal. This one or oneness is not a numerical number. This is an existential experience of our inner being. It is the experience of a state when all the numbers of our mind (all divisions) have been dissolved and disappeared and what is really left behind is that indivisible, invisible, infinite and ever expanding state of Brahma. The number One is only a metaphor to indicate this experience. This inner silence, inner song, inner symphony, inner rhythm, and inner order of our being is ultimately One and indivisible. This is that transcendental state. It is a state of Shunya, Samadhi, Nirvana or Nothingness. It is the state of a Spiritual Singularity. And this is a state of ultimate bliss or Ananda. This has been called by the Buddhas and the Upanishads as One or Advaita. Advaita means non-dual. It means now there is nothing like two. This experience is not in a numeric sense really but in a Nirvanic sense. We are all numeric in our minds, thoughts, dogmas, and philosophies. But we are all Nirvanic when it comes to our no-mind, silence, serenity, beauty, and order. This experience is Nirvanic because it is a part of our Soul. This is the reason why all the numbers are divine to Pythagoras. Even the whole Universe is a divine number to him. To him all the mathematical numbers have come from this infinite number. To him, he himself is a number coming out of this one Universal divine number. We are all numeric, discrete, different, and plural only in our bodies, minds, thoughts, dogmas, and philosophies. But we are all Nirvanic, singular, continuous, One, indivisible in our spirits. This is the power of that spiritual Oneness. This is really not our outer power but our inner power. And all power is for the prayer. All prayer is for the experience of this Oneness. And the inner prayer makes that miracle possible.

All our numbers are between zero (Shunnya) and infinity (Ananta). All numbers are just temporal. And zero (0and infinity (are not numbers. They are two aspects of a single reality. They are two concepts. The reality is One (Non-dual) and manifests into two dimensions, that is, zero (Shunnya) and infinity (Ananta). The number zero means a number that is as small as possible. How much small? Well, nobody has seen such a small number. The scientists also talk of a Physical Singularity. It is a point in space-time at which the space-time curvature becomes infinite. It is a smallest object of infinite gravity and infinite density. Well, nobody has seen and observed this point of singularity. It can not be experimented and observed. It is just a hypothesis of a Big Bang theory. And it is a part of Albert Einsteins theory of relativity. And from this point of singularity the universe has emerged and is continuously expanding. According to the scientists it is not only expanding but accelerating. This is what we call the universe. It is so big that we do not know how big it is. And we simply use the word infinity and the symbol ∞ to indicate this vastness. And when we ask the scientists as to where the universe is expanding, they say that it is expanding into nothingness. The universe has emerged from nothingness and is again expanding into nothingness. And this nothingness can not be expressed mathematically. This nothingness can only be experienced in our inner being. And Buddha called the experience of this nothingness as Nirvana. The Upanishads give a very beautiful definition of Nothingness. They say, when we add something to nothingness what remains behind is nothingness, and when we remove something from nothingness what remains behind is nothingness

What is zero and and what is infinity? This is little difficult. They are not two different things. Just take this example and contemplate and meditate on this. Take the example of a house that has an entry in the front and also has an exit in the back of the house. And also assume that the whole house is surrounded by an open space. The entry to the house is like zero, a beginning. And the exit to the house is like infinity. And the open space surrounding this house is like nothingness. This house can be expanded into many rooms and floors. And we can name these rooms as 1, 2, 3, 4, ...., n. I am sure that this example can make the understanding of these two concepts - zero (0) and infinity () simple.

A number is a particle dimension of the same reality and Nirvana is a wave dimension of the same reality. But this has to become ones individual existential experience. The reality is one and manifests into different dimensions. A number is an objective dimension and Nirvana is a subjective dimension. Nirvana is an experience of Spiritual Singularity. It is not experimental and it is experiential. It can not be experiemented and observed but it can be experienced and witnessed. The key thing on the path of objective reality is observation and the key thing on the path of subjective reality is witnessing. The objective universe is what we see and observe outside and the inner universe is what we see and witness inside. And Spiritual Singularity is a point in the inner space-time at which the inner space-time curvature becomes infinite.

Let us take another example of Mathematics. This example is of “Limits”. Let us say f(x) is a function of x. And let this function be 1/x. The limit of this function is that as x tends towards (0), 1/x tends towards (). And in Mathematics this is called “Limits” because you can never become zero and hence you never become infinite, though they both mean the same thing. It is something like a dog trying to catch hold of its own tail. This situation never comes because the dog always fails. It never comes to a state of catching hold of its own tail, though the head and the tail are just two ends of the same dog. But when it comes to spirituality the situation is totally different. That is why the outer science and the inner science they never talk to each other. In the inner science the possibility is that we actually become that. We can actually experience the point of “Spiritual Singularity”. This is a state of being one with the divine. The experience of nothingness is divine. It is in this state the Upanishads proclaimed, “Aham Brahamasmi”. It is in this state the Upanishads proclaimed, “Tatvamasi”.
