I realized something about existence when I was eight years old. I wondered about God. My religion and my parents, grandparents, etc all said that God lived in Heaven and if I was good I might get to go there when I died. OK. Fine. So...where was this Heaven?
In the sky, I was told. God lives in Heaven and Heaven is in the sky. OK so far.
Who made Heaven?
God made Heaven.
Where did God get the stuff to make Heaven?
Well, God made the stuff to make Heaven.
Uhmmm...where did God get the stuff to make the stuff to make Heaven?
Now we run into a problem. Because the only answer that makes any sense is that God got the stuff from God; which would mean that we and everything else are little parts of God wandering around pretending we don't know each other and perhaps even worse, pretending that we do not know that we are God pretending not to know!
That answer, of course, is unacceptable in the Abrahamic school of thought community and quite beyond the conceptualization powers of a lot of good intentioned people - like parents and grandparents.
This is the Containment Dilemma. We expect reality (or existence if you prefer) to come in discretely contained packages. We objectify reality-existence through a cause-and-effect mentality. The expectation breaks down when the conversation turns to the Origins of Existence. Why? Because the only answer that makes any sense is that at some point there is no more containment of objects. In order to explain reality-existence, objects and their separate distinctions have to disappear. Everything does not become One as we are taught in the Enlightenment Advanced Studies class. Everything becomes Nothing.
As long as there is a something before to start from, there is a something that the something before came from, ad infinitum. We usually use God as a cap to end the regression of Containment after which we say mysterious and unclear things that mean, Stop asking those difficult questions!
If our cause-effect, hierarchical, containment-necessary explanation of Existence does not work unless it endlessly loops back upon itself, it means that this reality-existence we call "home" is not truly 'real'. It is an artificial environment, an anomaly whether accidental or deliberately created. At some point in the explanation, the next level of being for reality-existence is '...and then there were none'.
No Time, no space, no measurement of any kind. No beginning, no end. And not because it was always there, but because it was never there.

1. The rise of the "Christ-Consciousness" to the point that the individual is beyond the powers of reincarnation.
2. After reincarnation the soul is released from the wheel of karma.
3. The word "resurrection" as found in the New Testament can be translated as "ascension".
Ascension is basically a change in focus of consciousness-awareness. Awareness is the key factor as it is the primal nature of the Source.
See 'Mind Ascension'
Mind Ascension - How Beings from Another Dimension are Helping Transform Material Bound Consciousness Through Information that is being Telepathically Communicated...
At this time a Mind Ascension has begun, and all minds extended from particular intentions that are either non-ascending or have concluded their karma are being retracted. The Ascension retracts the dream of the life, and the individual simply exists physically in one manner or another until the current dream ceases. The time of departure has begun and any available minds not necessary for holding open the Gate are preparing to leave the Realm of Substance.
Spirit is working to end this expression of the One. There are those among us who are Fifth-Dimensional beings operating on the Fifth Dimension while remaining physically in the fourth-dimensional reality of time and space. We see and think things that were not possible before.
You are being asked to cooperate in this exodus, you are not being forced.

The Realm of Substance -
We exist in the Realm of Substance. Beyond this realm are many others - or perhaps there is only one! Nevertheless, our boundary of awareness is defined by the Chaotic state of Nothingness which [begins] the Realm of Substance. This 'Aqdab Gate' serves as a portal to any realms which may be other than our current realm.
The Realm of Substance -
Aqdab Gate - Chaos of Nothingness
Awareness - Beingness
Multiple Parallel Dimensions of Existence
Spirit / God
There can be realms or Dimensions of Hierarchy within the Realm of Substance. For instance, the Spirit-God Dimension is considered to be higher than the Clairvoyant-Psychic; which is considered to be higher than the Physical-Material.
The Realm of Substance requires a Mind to lend it experience. That is why Existence seems to suddenly appear. There is no gradual build up to a state of Mind, it is either in effect or it is not. The first experience of Substance is in the Mind as NRJ. The Mind's first experience of NRJ is through the formation of Non-Matter or Mind in association with Non-Matter as Spirit. At a lower or latter level in the sequence is Mind's association with Matter as Life.
Mind in association with Matter as Life cannot have a direct interaction of Mind in association with Non-Matter as Spirit; they are mutually exclusive states. Spirit, therefore, cannot interact directly with Matter or material states of being in a successful manner due to the destructive effect Non-Matter has on Matter - it wants to change it into energy. If Spirit has successful non-destructive interactions with Matter, it is usually accomplished through the Mind as a Thought or an Intention.
The Dimension of Material Reality is uni-dimensional, meaning that it stands isolated. The Dimension of Non-Matter or Spirit is multi-dimensional, meaning that it is connections to other dimensions. The Mind can "travel" across dimensions more readily from the dimension of Non-Matter than it can from the dimension of Matter.
Life is the result of Mind's association with Matter. The problem is that once Mind forms an association with Matter, it becomes very difficult for the Mind to relinquish its grasp. Upon experiencing Life, the Mind tries in a futile gesture to grab and to hold onto as much of material existence as it can. This sets the conditions for multiple life experiences or re-incarnation loops. If the Mind is to regain its access to other dimensions, however (and more importantly, to other realms!) it must first relinquish its preoccupation with Matter and let go of its hold on the material dimension of existence.

I did a post a while back in another blog regarding the three types of mind. The subject matter concerned the three dimensions of Time commonly known to us as Past, Present and Future. The point was that we can 'travel' to these other dimensions of Time by changing the way we think about the associated reality and in this way gather valuable information. But the information is valid only within its context and must be understood from the perspective of its dimension.
The Past is accessed through Memory. The Future becomes available through Imagination. The Present is sensed through Perception. This means you are perfectly capable of recalling the Future just as well as you can remember the Past. It is simply that the Future is as yet unformed.
In the same manner that we can travel through the dimensions of Time, we can also travel through dimensions of other existences. We simply change the way in which we think about Existence.
We currently have a vocabulary for the three Time dimensions - Past, Present, Future - we have yet to create a universal language for other-dimensional interactions.
The Past and Memory -
Here's an esoteric way to think about Memory:
The Akashic Record continually updates any and all imprints into the medium. Every change no matter how small is read into the Akashic Record as if it were a static occurrence in time and space. This gives the appearance that physical reality is a solid unchanging and linear progression, and further, that once something has occurred in the fabric of time and space, it remains forever unchanged.
The Future and the Imagination -
Every moment of every day in linear time, minds are creating new possible and probable time lines in the infinity of time-space. In any given moment, you have an infinite number of possible paths to choose from in order to manifest your next moment. Hence every thought, however imperceptible, changes the nature of the time-space continuum.
The Present and Perception -
The only reality is the 'Now' moment. Stretching to either side, however, is the illusion of Past and Future. This overlap of Memory, Perception and Imagination creates the illusory suggestion that a Present exists.
The Observer Position -
'Now' is not really a time at all, it is a perspective from the observer position. Wherever the observer is, is 'Now'.
The 'Now' Moment -
I only know of two ways to demonstrate the reality of other dimensions. Both involve the 1/5th of a second it takes for the brain to process sensory information. I call this 'A View from the Fifth Dimension' due to my interpretation of its being an instance of the Fifth Dimension seeping into the Fourth Dimension through the 'Now' moment; which is actuality no Time at all but an observer perspective.
If 'Now' could be given a Time frame, it would be 1/5th of a second. I believe it is in this 1/5th of a second that the opportunity for manifestation presents itself. If indeed it takes us that long to process raw Existence into something we can understand through sensory perception.

by the modabid al-Adel Hassan
The little sliver of whatever passes for the woman's day sits as a line of faded color on the distant horizon.
She sighs a prayer, hopes that the poet Bem-Salef will reconsider and end it all - until she falters. And then sometime later, with the moon looming large and magnificent over her head the woman turns from her position at the window to once again ponder the obscure shadows hidden deep within the room's dimly lit interior.
In her hand she clutches a strand of prayer beads, clutches them so tightly that her knuckles crack in protest. She has done this many times before, the Yasmin. The sunset, the dunes, and the moonlight are her eternal companions.
There is the sound of paper rustling like silk veils lifting as one and hovering over an oasis that is many realities in the same moment - an imaginary heaven whose bestowment the Yasmine may not abide nor even consider lest it hem her in, jumble itself together in a tangled scheme, or come apart altogether at unexpected moments.
Sometimes the story abruptly ceases, ending in corridors with ascending stone steps; sometimes dissolving mid air amidst a song recalled from her own distant past.
Once upon a time not long ago she had passed through a section of verse that was somehow corruptly poised above a confused proliferation of neurotic viewpoints which had a flickering , sparse and uncertain illumination. Discarded ideas floated freely in the sky like clouds. Their relevance lost between pale wisps of pungent sweet-smelling blue smoke. Multiple visions had crowded the same low ceiling. It had been a nonsense of design and had subsequently been destroyed.
She was close this time, very very close ....she could see it now: The story had a spiraling design!
Each level written as a separate existence that was completely negated by the level directly above it; each level's existence thereafter was completely negated by the level directly above it, so that the pattern and style of each successive negation always varied from the manner in which the levels below were negated by the levels above.
The Yasmin found she could not quite focus on their content however. The levels were cluttered with crossed out lines and clustered dots, eclectic marks and cryptic anagrams so distorted that she could make no sense of it at all.
Her hands were locked in a paralyzed grip of agony. Her knuckles were pale. The ends of her fingertips were turning a dangerous shade of blue. She had been gazing at the written and unwritten pages for so long she had lost all track of time. Her legs were numb. She herself, frightened and dazed. She stood and stumbled, then slumped to one side; the floor rose up, and - flumpf!
Bem abruptly started, reached out. Too late. The manuscript had fallen. Gone was the visionary other side of Bem's cloudy curtain. The reverie faded. His precious poem was lost.
And here the poet's narration ceases altogether; and when the end to our tale comes, the Yasmin ed-Dallal has forgotten she ever existed anyway. Old words, new verses. Each gathering dust.
For that is how things invariably went with the poet Bem-Salef, ever since the loss of his fair Alyoucha. Every poem of his eventually mentioned dust. Dust in a wilderness where nothing ever transpired.
Not this. Not anything....

"We say God loves us as a comfort - the thought of such a powerful being is threatening to our peace of mind."
"What right-thinking Soul would leave the glory of Heaven
for such a place as this?"
Where do souls come from?
[For the purposes of discussion, we will assume that souls exist.]
Do they originate in a higher realm or come from a lower one, passing through the earth on their way to heaven?
On Souls -
General consensus suggests that souls come from God.
On God -
"There is a self-sustaining and consistent force that rules the universe. That appears obvious. But exactly what it is, this force - that is a mystery we have yet to unravel."
The Big Question -
If souls have their origins in a higher realm, what are they doing here?
The Possible Answer -
There is a certain fascination of spirit associated with the material realm.
"In order to experience one reality, it is necessary to ignore or to forget another, or to at least to ignore or to forget certain aspects of reality which define the other's existence."
The Discussion -
Q: The Necessity of Ignorance stated above creates a problem - If a soul forgets where it comes from, how does it get back?
A: Forgetting has been described by various religions as a turning away from God or as a kind of original sin that pushes a soul out of heaven.
This action of forgetting is not always viewed as a negative. Certain beliefs see it as an accepted requirement for experience to occur on the material realm.
Perception of the physical blocks out or ignores certain aspects of reality in favor of others. Human understanding of the observable universe is based on experienced gained through perception. This form of knowledge works well in securing a physical survival, but it is not sufficient to return a soul to its heavenly existence. A different kind of knowledge is needed for that.
Q: But if the soul has forgotten the reality of heaven in order to experience the material realm, where does a lost soul gain the knowledge needed to return it to its place of origin?
A: To resolve the problem of forgetfulness God regularly sends a manifested soul as an expression of the divine will. This manifested soul has no free will of its own. Although outwardly human in other respects, it expresses God's will. The manifested soul has a foot in both worlds - the material and the spiritual - and thus retains knowledge of its source.
The recurring mission is to transfer this knowledge to those lost souls desirous of a homeward returning.
The intermediary soul serves variously as a gate, an angel, an avatar, and a modabid. The assigned task determines the form an intermediary soul takes in fulfilling God's intention.
Gates hold open God's portal and point the way to God's Essence. Angels deliver messages. Avatars provide instructive education to key individuals who then educate others. Modabids seek out misinterpreted knowledge and make the appropriate corrections as needed.
This latter brings up a common misconception regarding the teachings of Islam. The Holy Quran is a recorded conversation between God and the angel Gabriel. The messenger is the angel, not Mohamed, who is later made recipient of the conversation's content. The recurrent 'we' of the Quran is actually God and the angels in discourse.
Mohamed decided God was talking personally to him and set in motion the first Islam which is to be replaced by the greater Islam as foretold in the Quran.
Islam is not a religion.
Islam is intended as a way of attaining reconciliation and peace with God. It is a philosophy. The Muslim religion is a result of the lesser Islam. It is the first practiced form of Islam. The results and nature of the greater Islam are still to come, "...to be revealed in a time and place of God's own choosing."
Q: So what is the remembering that an Intermediary Soul delivers?
A: The message of angels varies according to time and need, as does the education provided by avatars. The modabid's task is to transmit knowledge regarding the state of reality which transcends the material realm yet provides a foundation for its existence.
False Divine Intermediaries -
Many will claim possession of God's will as a way of elevating their status and acquiring worldly gain. Others put their trust completely in these persons and blindly follow these pretenders because they know of nothing else to do.
At the lowest point of Existence, or at the Creation-Level, there is an interaction of Mind with Matter.
The Intention of Mind is to inhabit Matter.
The Purpose is to explore the Material Realm.
The Result is Life.
An association of Mind to Matter creates the Etheric.
The Etheric is an envelope which contains Life; it is the "glue" between Mind and Matter.
An Envelope is a certain set of conditions that, when associated with Substance, make certain phenomenon possible that otherwise would not take place.
Spirit is such an envelope; it happens when Mind forms an Intention to inhabit Non-Matter.
The influence of Spirit can be seen as heat and light within the Observable Universe.
Spiritual influence is emitted as energy.
Spiritual-Beings happen when Mind forms an Intention to inhabit Non-Matter.
Spirit is the result, it is not the purpose. The Purpose is to explore Non-Matter.
Life-Beings happen when Mind forms an Intention to inhabit Matter.
Life is the result, it is not the purpose. The Purpose is to explore Matter.
Q: Is there a dissolution of the Soul?
A: On this matter of a Soul.
Spirit is not Life and Life is not Spirit.
The notion of a Soul is best stated as being the experiences and the memories the Mind takes with it from Life.
A living body is composed of many Minds working in harmony.
When Death occurs, the many Minds dissolve their group associations and continue onward toward their own Becoming.
Each retains a part of the experience that was life.
Survival of the Personality is an Holistic projection that can be reproduced by associating the particular memory of each concerned Mind with the same memory of Self.
The re-created Self will remember only the Life-Time it occupied and will not remember any Time Backwards or Forwards of that Time.
It will not perceive or recognize any object, concept, or living thing that did not [appear] within its Life-Time.
The re-created Self is not a Spirit Form, it is the Memory from a composite moment of Mind's association with Matter.
Q: Are there Angels and such?
A: There are Beings of Spirit just as there are Beings of Life.
All things contain Spirit, but not all things contain Life.
The influence of Spirit can best be stated as: "I Am Also That."
There is an interval of Time necessary for change to happen within the Physical Realm, a number of steps or 'Sequences of Change' that must be gone through.
Spirit can be experienced in the form of physical energy - heat and light - as any material change in state approaches near instantaneous.
The larger the Sequence of Change in relation to the brevity of Time, the more Spirit appears as an influence.
The Influence of Spirit can be destructive to Matter, and so may cause a disassociation of Mind to Matter, Insanity, or Physical Death.
God as a Spiritual Being cannot have direct contact with a living thing because it results in the disassociation of Mind to Matter. Therefore, Material Existence is provided association with Divine Spirit through Intermediary Souls.
The Mind of an Intermediary Soul is set equally between the Spirit and the Etheric, with one face to God and one face to Matter. Contact from God is made through Intermediary Souls who hold the Intention to do God's will.
Intermediary Souls have no free will in choosing what they do or say, however they are able to think any thought and to hold any opinion they wish.
When an Intermediary Soul is used to transport Intention from one Dimension to another it is called a 'Divine Manifestation'.
Intention is that which a Mind decides to do itself or to have done by another.
Consciousness, Awareness, and Existence -
The Consciousness is 0 1.
It is not the zero. It is not the one.
It is the Difference between the two.
The Consciousness is what allows the Mind to detect Difference;
to say that something is there, and that something is not there.
The Chaos of Nothingness is zero. It is not 'there'.
Beingness is one. It is 'there'.
Beingness is the thought, "I Am".
"I Am" is Awareness.
Consciousness makes Difference possible.
NRJ is Difference given definition.
Thoughts associated with NRJ are variations of the First Thought "I Am".
They are: "I Am That" / "I Am Not That" / "I Am Also That"
Mind reads the Difference and creates Existence.
Consciousness is Experience,
but first it must become Energy of Mind.
The Consciousness holds the Thought, "I Am Not That".
The reference is Awareness and beyond that, the Chaos of Nothingness.
There is a recognized Difference between Awareness as Beingness and the Chaos of Nothingness.
The Consciousness is NOT the Difference. The Consciousness is the Difference recognized.
The presence of Awareness is the Difference between Beingness and the Chaos of Nothingness.
The First Thought, "I Am'" becomes "I Am Not That" through an intercession of the Consciousness.
Difference is now possible through the Energy of the Mind - NRJ.
The Thoughts associated with NRJ are variations of the First Thought, "I Am"; they are: "I Am That" / "I Am Not That" / "I Am Also That"
The Consciousness makes Difference possible.
NRJ is the Difference given definition.
Mind reads the Difference and creates Existence.
Existence is Experienced in Dimensions.
Variations in NRJ define the Reality for any particular Dimension.
Variations are also known as "vibrations".
Variations are multiple combinations of the three Thoughts: "I Am That" / "I Am Not That" / "I Am Also That"
The Essential "That" not to be is the Awareness of Beingness; this creates the Consciousness.
Existence becomes Reality -
Various "Not Thats" push against various "Am Thats";
and as each "Not That" combines with each "Am That", various "Also Thats" are formed.
This Dance of NRJ is called Complexity. It happens at the Creation-Level of Existence, also known as Low-Level Existence.
Complexity comprises the Observable Universe.
The Observable Universe happens at the High-Level of Existence.
Observation of the Universe happens across multiple Dimensions of High-Level Existence.
Experience is filtered through Perception, of which there are many types.

I am the modabid.
So what does that mean?
What does it mean to be a modabid?
The modabid is the single point of Reality in a world of Illusion.
I can say, "I am the modabid."
When I am writing this book.
You can say, "I am the modabid."
When you are reading this passage.
We are all the modabid at one time or other;
as both an affirmation, and as a confirmation of Truth.
Where does it Begin?
It begins with the Chaos of Nothingness.
But we can have no comprehension of what that means because there is no logic or information within the Chaos of Nothingness for the Mind to grasp and hold onto.
So we say it begins with Awareness.
Awareness is Beingness. It is the First Thought, "I Am."
Being versus Existence
"Let's try not to get lost in the semantics."
Non-Existence / Pre-Existence / Low-Level Existence / High-Level Existence
Non-Existence / Beingness
Pre-Existence / the Consciousness
Low-Level Existence / NRJ
High-Level Existence / the observable universe
High-Level Existence is from [the quantum level] up - quarks, atoms, elephants, trees and rocks etc are examples of High-Level Existence. At this point, science kicks in.
Some fundamental questions
The principal questions of ontology are "What can be said to exist?" and "Into what categories, if any, can we sort existing things?"
Ontology is the philosophical study of the nature of being, existence or reality in general, as well as of the basic categories of being and their relations. Traditionally listed as a part of the major branch of philosophy known as metaphysics, ontology deals with questions concerning what entities exist or can be said to exist, and how such entities can be grouped, related within a hierarchy, and subdivided according to similarities and differences.
Ontology is inquiry into being in so much as it is being, or into being in general, beyond any particular thing which is or exists; and the study of beings insofar as they exist, and not insofar as, for instance, particular facts obtained about them or particular properties relating to them. Take anything you can find in the world, and look at it, not as a puppy or a slice of pizza or a folding chair or a president, but just as something that is. More specifically, ontology concerns determining what categories of being are fundamental and asks whether, and in what sense, the items in those categories can be said to "be".
Ontology is the study of that which is common to all things which exist.
Examples of ontological questions include:
* What is existence?
* Is existence a property?
* Which entities are fundamental?
* How do the properties of an object relate to the object itself?
* What features are the essential, as opposed to merely accidental, attributes of a given object?
* How many levels of existence or ontological levels are there?
* What is a physical object?
* Can one give an account of what it means to say that a physical object exists?
* Can one give an account of what it means to say that a non-physical entity exists?
* What constitutes the identity of an object?
* When does an object go out of existence, as opposed to merely changing?
* Why does anything exist rather than nothing? (This overlaps with questions in cosmology.)
The An'Kareen -
Everything that we can apprehend is but one part of a single entity. This idea somewhat anticipates the modern concept of an ultimate grand unification theory that finally explains all of reality in terms of one inter-related sub-atomic reality which applies to everything.
Forms must exist not only of Being, but also of Negation and of non-Being (or Difference)
Being (unique and unchanging)
Becoming - The dynamic aspect of being.
With Existence, 'Being' becomes 'Becoming'.
Becoming can be used as a term for potentiality.
Essence versus Substance
Beingness versus Existence
Awareness versus the Consciousness
NRJ = Difference = Substance
Awareness contains Difference but the Difference is Undifferentiated.
The Process of Involution -
There is no First Cause; there is only opportunity, potentiality, circumstance that is not accidental but merely unspecified. The Chance of Possibility.
Wher did Awareness come from?
There was no first cause, no reason [intellect] or purpose involved. There was Circumstance and the Chance of Possibility; not accidental but merely unspecified. The Chance of Possibility was/is the Potential for Something to appear out of Nothing. The Circumstance was/is Chaotic Nothingness about which we can know nothing.
This is [all] the Chance of Possibility that all this could actually happen.
The Consciousness [recognizes/detects] Difference - makes Difference possible. It is an enabler like the etheric and the Spirit. It forms an envelope/environment in which there can be Difference. It displaces Awareness/Beingness and [sets up the circumstance for Pre-Existence] through recognition of NRJ [modes of Difference].
It's a form of simulation real to the participants for as long as they remain within the simulation.
Awareness looks inward at itself. The Mind asks, "What Am I?" and answers, "I Am the Mind." To go beyond that, to the Source of Mind - Chaotic Nothingness about which we can know nothing - of necessity, dissolves the Mind.
Awareness [the Mind] explores Difference. Difference is Complexity.
In philosophy, essence is the attribute or set of attributes that make an object or substance what it fundamentally is, and which it has by necessity, and without which it loses its identity.
Essence is defined as the essential part of a thing; its Beingness or Awareness. The Mind. In order for us to experience a thing, it must first have Beingness. Non-Beingness is the Chaotic Nothingness of which we can know nothing - it is beyond our comprehesion. Why? Because it is Non-Beingness. There is nothing for us to grab onto either physically or mentally.
Existence 'appears' to the Mind through the Consciousness. The Consciousness establishes the circumstance for Difference. It does this by stating, "I Am Not That," meaning Awareness. NRJ is the Difference. It is an extention of the thought, "I Am Not That," which is itself a variation on the Original Thought, "I Am" - NRJ states, "I Am That" / "I Am Not That" / "I Am Also That".
"I Am Also That" - the Consciousness ultimately realizes that for a complete definition of itself, it needs to include Awareness as the thing it pushes away from.
The Consciousness references another thing; something outside itself that gives it definition - "I Am Not That". Awareness is self-referencing - "I Am".
It may be said that NRJ is the dynamic aspect of being - "I Am That" / "I Am Not That" / "I Am Also That" - or - Awareness / Not Awareness / Awareness. NRJ is the Mind becoming the Mind by an elimination of Difference through Inclusion. Awareness becoming Awareness with a Difference. The Difference progresses in Complexity until it becomes indistiguishable from Chaotic Nothingness. The Mind finally declares that it is the Chaotic Nothingness of which it can have no comprehension, and dissolves.
When you manipulate something, you open it up and access the "I Am Also That" of it - the thing's Spirit. That is your handle. Your Spirit makes a connection with the thing's Spirit. There is no spoon because the spoon becomes an extension of your own self.
Whenever there is change, there is a corresponding release of NRJ. Harmonious releases of NRJ appear as instances of synchronicity. Rapid, abrupt or forced change, appears as light and heat on the physical realm; it is usually accompanied with unpredictable violence. Events are unexpected and sudden.
"I Am Also That" is as close to Beingness as Existence can come. "I Am Also That" is Spirit.
So if Beingness is the basis for everything, what is Beingness defined as being?
Beingness is defined as being something that is not nothing. In other words, Beingness is not the Chaos of Nothingness. Anything not the Chaos of Nothingness is Beingness. We cannot comprehend Chaotic Nothingness, but we can comprehend Beingness. We do this by exploring the states of Beingness - "I Am That" / "I Am Not That" / "I Am Also That" - called Existence. Anything that is other than Beingness/Awareness/Mind or Nothingness/Chaos is Existence/NRJ/the Consciousness. Exploring Existence to understand Beingness is called Becoming or Evolution. The Consciousness developing as Low-Level Existence [NRJ] through the process of Complexity is called Involution.
"I Am" is the identification of an individual who is not Chaotic Nothingness. "I Am That" / "I Am Not That" / "I Am Also That" is identification of an individual in reference to other individuals.
Time is a thing of High-Level existence.
These things of Low-Level Existence do not happen within a time frame. They happen within a Sequence of Circumstance. The Circumstance provides the opportunity for further Compexity by opening or widening the potential for something to compare itself to something else. This is tricky; it is a function of the Mind. As soon as the thought is produced, "I Am Not That" there is a potential established in which something can be seen as 'not being' another thing which states, "I Am Not That [first thing]" and so on. The Original First Thought, "I Am" establishes the Circumstances for "I Am Not That" if only in referencing Chaotic Nothingness.
In order to fully understand what it is, Awareness must realize that it is indeed "Also That" - in referencing Chaotic Nothingness - at which point Awareness dissolves back into its Source and becomes Chaotic Nothingness. This is the culmination of the evolutionary process. Upon recognition of Source, the evolving identity dissolves into and becomes its identified Source. This is called Fusion of the Spirit - "I Am Also That". When this happens to Beingness, there is a state of Non-Beingness beyond which we can know nothing.

Explaining the Simulation -
"The simulation is produced from something unlike the simulation. From outside the simulation anything inside the simulation is seen to be Illusion; while inside the simulation, the same things are seen to be reality."
First of all, you are not your body. Your body is part of the simulation. Your mind is the player, the witness, the observer, the soul. God is the system's administrator. The universe is the system; it is self sustaining and consistent. God the administrator put the universe together, set it into motion and walked away. No further maintenance is required. But if somehow the system becomes unstable or requires an update the system can introduce subroutines to correct the problem. This subroutine fixware appears in the form of demons, angels, djinn, avatars, and modabids. There is no direct interaction of the system with the administrator. The only evidence of the administrator is in fact the system and the corrective fixware which is compatible with the system yet which lies beyond the system. Fixware becomes active within the system when needed.
The player is limited to observing only what is within the system. There are, however, hidden levels within the system that can be activated through a proper understanding of the system's composition. These levels are commonly called Dimensions or Realms. One is the Clairvoyant or the Psychic Realm. A higher realm is non-physical; it does not require processing through the physical senses so no physical presence is necessary - the body does not go there. Our observer self is essentially independent of any particular platform.
The higher realms are organized through Sequence. The physical realm is organized through a relative sense of Past, Present, and Future; or through what is known as Time. The system makes use of Time so that events seem to flow in a progressive and unidirectional manner.
I am not saying that we are living in a computer simulation of reality. This experience is much more sophisticated and it is not a simulation of reality, it is reality. Our existence is the result of a process which generates realities. We are living in one.
I have included the following although I do not necessarily agree with it.
"Simulating the entire universe down to the quantum level is obviously infeasible... But in order to get a realistic simulation of human experience, much less is needed -- only whatever is required to ensure that the simulated humans, interacting in normal human ways with their simulated environment, don't notice any irregularities."
The observation of distant stars could easily be simulated without having to simulate every aspect of their internal processes. Microscopic phenomena could also be simulated "as needed" to satisfy a particular observer at a particular time.
Me: In fact the only thing necessary is an observer. Everything else, including other life forms human or not, could be produced in a similar fashion.
"If we are living in a simulation, then the cosmos that we are observing is just a tiny piece of the totality of physical existence. The physics in the universe...that is running the simulation may or may not resemble the physics of the world we observe. While the world we see is in some sense 'real', it is not located at the fundamental level of reality." [which we could never perceive]
"In some ways, the post-humans running a simulation are like gods in relation to the people inhabiting the simulation: the post-humans created the world we see; they are omnipotent in the sense that they can interfere in the workings of our world even in ways that violate its physical laws; they are omniscient in the sense that they can see everything that happens."
In critical theory, the post-human is a speculative being that represents or seeks to enact a re-writing of what is generally conceived of as human. It is the object of post-humanist criticism, which critically questions Renaissance humanism, a branch of humanist philosophy which claims that human nature is a universal state from which the human being emerges; human nature is autonomous, rational, capable of free will, and unified in itself as the apex of existence. Thus, the post-human recognizes imperfection and disunity within him or herself, instead understanding the world through context and heterogeneous perspectives while maintaining intellectual rigor and a dedication to objective observations of the world. Key to this post-human practice is the ability to fluidly change perspectives and manifest oneself through different identities. The post-human, for critical theorists of the subject, has an emergent ontology rather than a stable one; in other words, the post-human is not a singular, defined individual, but rather one who can "become" or embody different identities and understand the world from multiple, heterogeneous perspectives.
The post-human is not necessarily human in the first place, but is rather an embodied medium through which critical consciousness is manifested.
A post-human is a hypothetical future being "whose basic capacities so radically exceed those of present humans as to be no longer unambiguously human by our current standards."
The difference between the post-human and other hypothetical sophisticated non-humans is that a post-human was once a human, either in its lifetime or in the lifetimes of some or all of its direct ancestors. As such, a prerequisite for a post-human is a trans-human, the point at which the human being begins surpassing his or her own limitations, but is still recognizable as a human person or similar. In this sense, the transition between human and post-human may be viewed as a continuum rather than an all-or-nothing event.
Post-human God -
A variation on the post-human theme is the notion of a "Post-human God"; the idea that post-humans, being no longer confined to the parameters of "humanness", might grow physically and mentally so powerful as to appear possibly god-like by human standards. This notion should not be interpreted as being related to the idea portrayed in some science fiction that a sufficiently advanced species may "ascend" to a higher plane of existence - rather, it merely means that some post-human beings may become so exceedingly intelligent and technologically sophisticated that their behavior would not possibly be comprehensible to modern humans, purely by reason of their limited intelligence and imagination. The difference here is that the latter stays within the bounds of the laws of the material universe, while the former exceeds them by going beyond it.

Is Time necessary?
Is there such a thing as objective Time, or do our perceptions create Time as part of the information retrieval process?
Time can be used as a descriptor to identify an event.
The common-sense view of the world as a three-dimensional space modulated by the passage of time:
Conventionally, time is divided into three distinct phases; the "past", the "present", and the "future". Using that representational model, the past is generally seen as being immutably fixed and the future as being undefined and nebulous. The moment that was once the present becomes a part of the past; and some part of the future, in turn, becomes the new present.
The thing is that it is all happening so fast!
The Cause and Effect Effect -
The circumstances of the present moment are used to validate the next moment due to a parsing feature in the perception that does not allow a random selection of events.
This process begins with a birth of consciousness and ends with its subsequent death. We call the string of events a lifetime.
This collection of experienced events can also be thought of as a block of sequence. Any individual event within the block can belong to a different block. Blocks of Sequence interweave with one another and in this way create the fabric of a block universe.
This idea suggests a unique birth of consciousness through an initial event [of creation / expansion / inflation] as all possible choices come into being, and a unique death of consciousness [through contraction / deflation / collapse] as all possible choices are realized and as all possible outcomes are eventually exhausted.
The new block universe comes into being whole and complete from beginning to end, but the events within are not yet realized. As realized events expand, the unrealized events contract. This process of experience is called 'Becoming'.
Big Bang...End Game.
The Free Will Dilemma -
Free will in a block universe of the type I have described is simply a matter of choosing which block of sequence to experience next, it is not the creating of a new experience. The choices have already been set in place and exist before they are selected. It is a limited free will whose extents will never be realized in a single lifetime.
When you stand at the threshold of choice your options are limited to whatever can be created out of the present moment. In other words, "You can choose any flavor you want as long as it's vanilla or chocolate; free will is not infinite."
The Will of God in a Block Universe -
In a Block Universe the will of God manifests as high stress situations where the options are severely limited. A decision must be made, but the choices are few. There is no time for lengthy consideration and Intuition has to be relied upon to resolve the issue.
The successful outcome requires an act of Faith.
As the block universe progresses the events open to selection become less and less in number, the rest are set in place as the Past. The free will of the new block universe gradually dissipates as the events within are realized and the block universe grows older. The will of God begins to manifest through the form of old souls who are limited in their use of free will. The free will of these old souls has been subjugated to God's will which then appears in the form of demons, angels, djinn, avatars, and, of course, modabids.
Sequence in a Block Universe -
Before and After are terms of Sequence. Past, Present and Future are terms for dealing with Time. Sequence can exist without a time framework. A relative future event can occur before a relative past event thus influencing the relative past event in such a way that it affects the relative future event. This is called WhirlPooling or BootStrapping. Old souls manifest in their relative Past to teach and influence the beings of that relative Past world in order that they - the old soul - may come into an activated existence in the past world's relative future.

Life is a wave function.
The present moment is like a point on the wave. We do not experience the point because the state change happens faster than we are able to perceive it, so events seem to flow.
Without memory of the past as a series of set events and without an imagination of possible future events, it would always be a perpetual 'Now' and we would have no awareness that it could be any other way than how it is.
We would be in a state of perfect beingness. The Consciousness establishes the parameters for Past, Present, Future - Memory, Perception and Imagination.
It is an Illusion that the Past cannot be any other way than how we remember it; just as it is an Illusion that a Future exists.
There are only Now states which have been experienced and those which have not been experienced. The Past in this way is a Block Perception.
We are prevented from seeing the wave function due to our concentration on the point / static / particle part of the wave.
In order to experience the wave, our Perception changes it into a series of points. Perception acts as an information retrieval system.
We remember the past so that we do not choose the same moment again and again and again. The goal in perception is to move along the wave.
Our Perception is locked to the present moment as the point's position changes. We cannot experience the wave through perception alone; our Imagination gives us a taste of the wave.
We know it is there, we just can't touch it. We must relinquish our one point focus if we are to experience the continuity of the wave. We do this from the Fifth Dimension of Clairvoyance.
And in fact, our understanding of the wave function is limited by our experience of it through the only tool we have as physical entities - our perception. The wave function transcends experience and defies description.
Even the attempt at an explanation leaves out something and we can only reach an approximation of the actuality such that we can only know one thing: Whatever we say about it isn't it.
We must give up our hold on it through perception and be the wave with no concern about the past and no regard about the future, suspending time in exchange for awareness.
In this state of beingness there is no interpretation, no assignment of good or evil and no thought of free will. We become witnesses to the unfolding of the Consciousness from the perspective of Awareness.
Perception displaces the Awareness of Being!
Detach from the present moment of Perception and flow with the wave of Beingness. This unlocks the Fifth Dimension. This is the Aqdab Gate, the Portal to the Awareness claimed by the Mystics and the Clairvoyants.
In this state of being, psychic activity is simply another form of perception made available to the Consciousness.

The universe changes moment by moment. A moment is of very short duration and happens very quickly. The universe in existence now is not the universe that was in existence a moment ago. It has evolved or become something else.
Due to our cognitive time lag we are constantly a step behind the universal 'Now' or what I call Actual Now. This lag behind is the unavoidable consequence of Perception.
Our physical senses can only process information which already exists; so we become witnesses of the universal unfolding as a result.
So what is Actual Now?
Actual Now is Beingness. It is pre-cognitive and pre-perceptual. Actual Now is the state of Existence before it is filtered by our human senses, parsed by our human perception and interpreted by our human intellect.
We 'twist' the simultaneity of Existence into something our minds can understand, this twisting involves a time delay during which our intellect creates a framework of Past, Present and Future based on Memory, Perception and Imagination.
Perception needs to something to be perceived. It does not function in simultaneous environments. Perception requires Existence to be experienced in slices. Information is selectively chosen and linked together by the Perception, is processed, and then presented to the cognitive mind for intellectualizing.
It is similar to examining something with a microscope. The perspective provides a detailed view, emphasizing some aspects while filtering out others.
Simultaneity is filtered out; similarity is emphasized.
Similar events attract other similar events so that sequence is experienced as an ordered and consistent change.

1. a group of signs and symptoms that together are characteristic or indicative of a specific disease or other disorder
2. a group of things or events that form a recognizable pattern, especially of something undesirable
A syndrome is a group of behaviors that form a recognizable pattern indicative of an undesirable situation.
The question is: Undesirable to whom?
The human mind when encountering unfavorable conditions will react in certain predictable ways. If the resulting behaviors are misinterpreted or not understood, the otherwise normal reaction can seem a mystery and harmful. Attention is focused on the behavior and not on the stimulus; especially if the stimulus is deliberately and artificially in place as an accepted and preferred social norm.
In the case of autism the stimulus is the current manner of thought pervasive in human society. It is a form of social consciousness that is incompatible with the newborn mind.
The mind upon birth is introduced to an external environment it is unprepared for. In order to survive, the infant is asked to adopt behaviors appropriate to the external environment but which go against its own inner consciousness.
The infant mind reacting to the external condition shuts down, withdraws, or develops coping mechanisms in order to maintain its integrity.
The path the infant mind takes all depends on the perceived consequence of error - the severity of the punishment in the case of being wrong. Strength of will also plays a part in this decision. A personality with a strong will is less likely to withdraw. These willful personalities later become the NeuroAdept.
Adept - somebody who is highly proficient or expert at something
The collective set of unique behaviors developed by the willful mind has come to be known as Asperger’s Syndrome.
AS is the autistic mind learning to navigate an alien landscape and being, to a degree, successful.
AS describes the infant personality encountering adverse external conditions and not backing down.

9 And God went on to say: “Let the waters under the heavens be brought together into one place and let the dry land appear.” And it came to be so.
10 And God began calling the dry land Earth, but the bringing together of the waters he called Seas....
2 The earth was without form and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep; and the Spirit of God was moving over the face of the waters.
11 And God said, "Let the earth put forth vegetation, plants yielding seed, and fruit trees bearing fruit in which is their seed, each according to its kind, upon the earth." And it was so. 12 The earth brought forth vegetation, plants yielding seed according to their own kinds, and trees bearing fruit in which is their seed, each according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.
20 And God said, "Let the waters bring forth swarms of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the firmament of the heavens." 21 So God created the great sea monsters and every living creature that moves, with which the waters swarm, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.
22 And God blessed them, saying, "Be fruitful and multiply and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth."
26 Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, after our likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth."
27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.
We have been on the planet for 4 million years and have just recently involved ourselves with an exploration of space beyond our atmosphere. Is not difficult to believe there are civilizations which have been in existence for hundreds of millions of years who are already deeply involved in exploration of space beyond their relative atmospheres, and further, who are currently involved in migratory population experiments akin to the possible Martian Terraforming and subsequent colonization we are now investigating in our own solar system.
Entities traveling the stars do not think or plan in years or centuries, they plan in much larger lengths of time - eras.
An event is arriving that happens every 26,000 years - the alignment of the earth with galactic center exactly at the winter solstice. Perhaps we are due a visit from the holders of the experiment earth; the "God" and the "Angels" who are returning to check on the Terran project.
Perhaps there are experimenters who have been injected into the experiment as observers or Watchers, avataars whose task it is to bear witness and keep a chronicle for future endeavors of a similar nature.
It would make sense to transform a suitable planet, induce a native population, then integrate with the native population to ensure compatibility and the survival of an otherwise alien entity.
In the stellar community physical appearance would not matter as much as the manner of thought - the group mind.
Biology does not separate the human from the animal; it is the manner of thought in each which generates the major differences.
Adam, the First Clone -
It's more likely Eve was genetically engineered first, and then the clone Adam was made using stem cells from the bone marrow of one of her ribs.
In the animal world fetuses are essentially female. The transformation to male comes later in the gestation process so that the male is actually a transformed female. In the absence of males, females can transform themselves and reproduce independent of male input - sharks, honey bees and amphibious frogs for instance.
Science and religion at some time in the past was one and the same thing. The split came when science did away with the supernatural and stated that everything could be explained as natural cause and effect. Whereas religion might say it was the work of a miraculous God, science would say, "We simply do not know yet how it is done, but we will soon discover the process which will explain it."
NASA's Kepler mission has taken its first images of the star-rich sky where it will soon begin hunting for planets like Earth. The new 'first light' images show the mission's target patch of sky, a vast starry field in the Cygnus-Lyra region of our Milky Way galaxy. One image shows millions of stars in Kepler's full field of view, while two others zoom in on just one-thousandth of the full field of view. In one image, a cluster of stars located about 13,000 light-years from Earth, called NGC 6791, can be seen in the lower left corner. The other image zooms in on a region containing a star, called Tres-2, with a known Jupiter-like planet orbiting every 2.5 days.
An interstellar craft traveling at half the speed of light could make the journey to earth from NGC 6791 in 26,000 years.
An event is arriving that happens every 26,000 years. On the winter solstice of 2012, the noonday Sun exactly conjuncts the crossing point of the sun's ecliptic with the galactic plane, while also closely aligning with the exact the center of the galaxy. Some believe it marks the ending of one era and the beginning of another. This will be the fifth such occurrence in the history of Human consciousness.

"You can choose your Destiny but you have to work within the Fate you are given. Fate is a coincidence waiting to happen."
The universe comes into being whole and complete from beginning to end.
It comes into being, but not necessarily into Existence.
That may sound a little confusing, but think about it: Will the universe we experience today be the universe we experience tomorrow? Will everything remain exactly the same, or will things have changed?
Consider a piece of blank paper. The paper is Beingness. If we examine the paper closely we can see it is covered with lightly drawn lines. The lightly drawn lines are Existence. The pattern of the lightly drawn lines is Fate. The pattern is set and cannot be changed; it is an inseparable part of Existence.
The lightly drawn lines, however, can be darkened in. Even though they must follow a set course, the path these potentially dark lines take has not yet been determined. The soon to be darkened lines overlying Fate represent Destiny.
Destiny is a choice of which lines will be darkened in, which paths will be taken and which events will be made to happen as a personal reality.
Destiny is free will to the extent it does not conflict with Fate.
Lines of Fate sometimes connect, so that no matter which Destiny you choose, it leads to the same Fate. I call these instances of multiple connections 'Node Points'.
Node Points hold the web of Existence together. Node Points are common instances of reality that extend across dimensions.
Events at Node Points take on the particular flavor of the environment in which they are experienced.
Node Points 'cut across' dimensions. Where one intersects the material realm, the associated events manifest physically. Where one intersects the Spirit realm, the associated events manifest energetically. In the Psychic realm, associated events manifest clairvoyantly.
The same event occurs across multiple dimensions but the actual experience of the event is greatly influenced by the particular realm upon which it is encountered.

Although it can be said, God has a physical presence through the created form, God has no physical existence.
God is a product of the Mind.
The created form is the physical universe, the observable universe, the universe as we know it.
The created universe came into being whole and complete from beginning to end.
The created universe is a self-sustaining system, and as such, it needs no maintenance. It is whole and complete.
The created universe has a beginning and an end indicated by its involvement with time. Time is made of change - something begins, has duration and ends.
God stands apart from the created form. God's participation is not necessary for Existence to continue. God's participation was only necessary for Existence to begin; thereafter, existence was and is self-sustaining.
Existence is a thought held in God's Mind. Our experience is not that of God, it is of the thought which is held by God.
We cannot know God, but we can know the Thought. In knowing the Thought, we are denied direct knowledge of God. Our human mind, through perception, is directed elsewhere.
We are witnesses to the Thought of Existence within the Mind of God as it becomes whole and complete from beginning to end.
We bear witness to the Thought unfolding in God's Mind through the filter of perception. The unfolding is a Becoming.
The Mind of God is a passive environment; within that passive environment is an unfolding, a dynamic thought of Existence. The dynamic Thought of Existence creates a dynamic relationship. The dynamic relationship is an ongoing dialogue between the observer and the observed.
The Mind is the observer. Anything not identified as being the observer is identified by the mind as being the observed.
The thought associated with the observer is, "I Am That."
The thought associated with the observed is, "I Am Not That."
The observed and the observer taken together represent Existence. The associated thought is, "I Am Also That."
The concept of God is the human mind beginning to realize that everything is part of a consistent self-sustaining system - that all things are essentially one thing.
This realization of central unity is sometimes called God-Consciousness.

In this blog I promote two ideas:
The idea that Existence is the work of an intelligent presence.
The idea that Existence is the interpretation of a raw undifferentiated substance.
Both ideas can be expressed by picturing a spectrum.
At one end of the spectrum place the reality we experience directly through perception.
At the opposite end place a state of beingness about which we can be aware of and about which we can speculate, but about which we can actually know nothing.
In the gradient between, place Existence.
In the Void just before the beginning of Existence, place the Creator Mind. In the occupied space just after the beginning of Existence, place the Creator God.
The image of God is formed through the Mind's recognition of Existence as being an ordered, consistent and self-sustaining reality.
God has no Physical Existence -
If God exists, then Existence has to come before God. If God comes before Existence, then God cannot be said to exist. The same statement is valid if you want to say that God goes beyond considerations of time and space, since time and space are conditions of existence.
God exists as a concept -
The Mind experiences a consistent self-sustaining system and evokes the intelligent presence of a Creator God.
God is a product of the Mind.
First Cause -
An adequate description of Existence requires a different way of thinking. The human mind is designed to look for a cause to explain any effect. It assumes there must be a First Cause that explains the existence of everything. The problem is that the question can always be asked, "But what caused the First Cause?"
And to that there is no answer. The mind must accept that it is possible for an event to occur spontaneously, without any cause.
This is how Beingness appeared out of a Chaotic state of Nothingness as the first instance of Awareness. It appeared spontaneously, without any cause.
Given the infinite potential
for Something to appear out of Nothing,
Given the infinite potential
for Something to appear out of Nothing,

My Latest Toy!
Live Scribe is an ink pen and audio recorder. It records everything you write, scribble and draw along with audio. You can play it back from anywhere, search what you wrote and share your recordings and notes with others. You can turn your notes into digital text and edit them on the computer. That's right - it’s a computerized pen that gives handwritten notes audio support!
Live Scribe Pulse Smart Pen
The 2GB pen is $199, 1GB is $149. Ink refills cost $5.95 for a multipak.
Try to get it on sale and save some bucks. I got mine at Target.
The Smart Pen requires a special "dot paper" and the papers come in a variety of styles and sizes from journals to flip pads; inside they look like regular lined or blank pages with the added menu at the bottom of each page. Tap the menu with the pen and you get available options. In a pinch you can even draw your own menu and use that one.
Livescribe Dot Paper -
The Smart Pen requires Livescribe™ dot paper. This paper is standard paper with printed microdots on its surface. The dots are nearly invisible to the human eye, but the Smart Pen can easily see them through the ink you write on your pages and uses them to know the particular page you are writing and the exact location on that page.
Smart Pens are really cool.

A non-religious non-scientific look at how things got here...
* Time is an envelope in which Change takes place - when Mind forms an association to Sequence, you get an envelope of Time.
* Time is Change perceived.
* An Event is an incident of Change. It requires an observer and Sequence. Change is produced as successive stages of Becoming are perceived by the Mind.
* Mind is the Consciousness as a Dynamic Entity. The entity's dynamic aspect is the interplay of Difference. The interplay of Difference forms Existence.
The Purpose of Existence :
The Mind's Intention is to reconcile the appearance of Difference - to heal the rift between Awareness and the Chaos of Nothingness.
Various ways Mind projects the Intention :
Etheric - the Mind's association to Matter.
Spirit - the Mind's association to Energy.
Change - the Mind's association to Sequence.
Time - the Mind's association to Change.
Difference - the Mind's association to Awareness.
Consciousness, as it applies to Mind, is the recognition of Difference.
The Consciousness itself, IS the Difference.
Awareness in the Human Mind is the ability to discern Presence.
Consciousness in the Human Mind is the ability to discern Difference.
Perception in the Human Mind is the ability to discern separate elements of Existence.
Intellect in the Human Mind interprets separate elements of Existence. Intellect, however, does not address the accuracy of its interpretation.
Intelligence in the Human Mind is measured in accordance with its ability to successfully employ the Intellect but not necessarily with its ability to employ Truth.
Truth is a function of the gnostic mind which gathers the direct knowledge contained within Etheric envelopes of Life and Spirit envelopes of energy.
[The above applies to the Human Mind only. Information regarding the microbial, plant and animal perspective is not available.]
