The Omniscient Computer-Mind!
The Non-Local Stilled Meditating Mind is Omniscient:
The Meditating Mind is like a turned on computer where the keyboard is untouched
& there is no reading of inputs neither from CD, Floppy drive, network, or any other source.
No background tasks are running. Such computer update its state with according to the speed
of its processor e.g. ~ 1 GHz. So it is very ready! even though no job is active. Same with the
meditating mind it is ultra aware though ideally empty of objects & processes. Equanimity <http://what-buddha-said.net/drops/III/Equanimity_Upekkha.htm> may
be likened to a computer, where whatever button is pressed on the keyboard, whatever CD or
floppy is inserted in their drives, whatever information is downloaded from the net, local or
global there will be absolute no reaction on the screen! It is though not a ‘frozen’ but open state!
Still the stream of discrete subconscious states (Bhavanga=mind moments) are running on, yet
void of any object. This very basic stream of underlying naked consciousness may be likened to
the electrical current in the computer. The current is 'inside' the computer and makes it work,
but is not a product of the computer. Consciousness is 'inside' the brain and makes it work, but
is not a product of the brain as assumed !!!! Electricity is 'global' as it is the same current that
are all-over the same town. This current is shifting phase continuously (50 Hz). Consciousness is
also 'global' as it can be trained to perceive all events in a universe whether present, past or future.
That phenomenon is called 'Omniscience'. However the mind is much faster than any computer as it
change & update states 17 times more quickly than any state of matter a computer possibly ever
can be made of. Basically this may very well be the bottom cause, why mind stands over & dominates
matter & not the other way around as assumed in our present times of naive materialistic beliefs.
The intentionally choosing & determining mind directly creates, produces and manifests the world
that will appear among many closely related potential or probable paired mental & material states…
So far does also contemporary orthodox quantum-mechanics agree…
Mind creates materiality by intending!
The Blessed Buddha once said:
Intention always comes first
Intention is of all states the primer
By intention are all things initiated
By thought of mind are all phenomena formed
