While science tends to say that it still hasn’t discovered the “unified theory of Everything”, or the single law of Nature with which all natural phenomena can be assessed without exception, its as if it fails to recognize in the most basic sense the very law or apparatus that makes the perception of all things possible. All arts and science and the material world as we know it is “mental in nature”. All perception, awareness, and natural phenomena are a primary function of the mind. Not what some have been taught to think of as a brain function, but rather as the energy field that not only operates the brain and body through the neurological system, but animates, structures, and holds together all forms of matter that make up the natural world. Nothing exists unless it’s perceived “as” something. The mind is the conscious source that generates all reality as we know it. Every science there is, with no exception, is a process of thought and conscious awareness. In fact, what we call the objective outer reality of separate and interactive things, may be the fabrication of our own individual mind, that produces our waking reality in much the same way it produces realities in our sleeping dreams.
The law as a unified theory that science is always on a competitive quest to discover, is in reality an essential part of themselves postulating the very questions that drives its search to discover its own true nature, the mind out of which all things emerge as an interconnected whole. Without consciousness, reality itself wouldn’t exist, because there would be no awareness of it. Even with all our modern day scientific knowledge and technology, the only way we have of knowing whether of not something “actually exists” is if “two or more people appear to be seeing the same thing”. In the most basic sense, every individual is forming a unique and varied perception of the same outer, objective elements or events. No two minds perceive exactly alike. In fact, their perceptions outside of containing the same universal elements as a generic idea, are completely different, and often don’t even resemble each other.
This “unified theory of everything” that sciences gropes in the dark to find, is the very basis of their very being. It’s the fact that energy and matter are different aspects or degrees of the same thing. Energy and matter are equivalent and interchangeable as correspondences of each other. The primal substance of matter as light (photons), is a product of vibration as movement that produces the appearance of a solid substance. Vibration as invisible forces that become what we call physical reality by organizing light into three-dimensional shapes that have an ordered and formulated set of attributes and properties that animates it with distinct functions and behaviors, is consciousness itself, out of which everything as we know it emerges and is formed out of, then decays and blends back into.
Consciousness as the universal mind is ALL. Everything that we can see, hear, feel, smell, taste, and experience as real is consciousness itself, perceiving itself in everything else, acting on itself in others, and creating a sense of itself as something specific through the very nature of its thoughts and feelings. Consciousness is not only the light forms we call material reality, but it’s also the invisible space that organizes it, sets the stage for it to emerge, and holds it all together. The world as we know it is a product of our own thoughts and feelings. When we render ourselves “unconscious” by subduing the conscious aspect of outer awareness, everything ceases to exist and we are void of experience of any kind. Nothing exists without a conscious mind to perceive and experience it. So the basic nature as the “oneness” of all existence is the mind in its universal and individual state that exists on multiple levels, scales and at varying degrees throughout the cosmos.
The mind of the individual is the invisible energy field that surrounds, permeates, and inhabits the body, and contains a certain combination and measurement of consciousness. The group mind is formed as a larger mind of shared consciousness. Mass consciousness is the combined consciousness of a species or kingdom. All material objects, both organic and non-organic are accompanied by energy fields as the active and creative life giving force of that object. This energy field of the mind or consciousness is also referred to as the astral or Akashic field. The Earth has an astral field as its atmosphere, which contains all the consciousness of the life forms that inhabit it also referred to as the instinctual or morphogenic field of the collective unconscious. All of it is based on the same principle of consciousness at different scales and levels of existence.
The first law of Universal Laws, is the law of the Monad, represented by a circle with a dot in the center, the same symbol that represents the sun as the center and life giving source of our solar system, is the Law of Mentalism. All is Mind. The substantial reality underlying all manifestations and appearances known as the “Material Reality” or the “phenomena of Life” as matter and energy, perceivable through the five senses of the body, and the higher sense of intuition, results from the perceptions formed by the Mind. All physical reality is a mental creation. The universe exists in the mind in which we all live, move, and have our being. There is considerably more to the greater Universe than the human being can perceive and know of, that’s outside of information obtained from our five senses, which is only tuned into and capable of interpreting a very small amount of the total information available. All laws that systematically evolve out of this primary law are laws that provide us with the means for using our own individual mind to transform ourselves and the reality we naturally experience and partake in. By changing our mind, our entire experience of life and what we act to naturally perceive changes also. All reality as we know it within this narrow plane that exists as a parallel aspect of a much greater realm beyond our ability to perceive it is all a creation of the mind. The mind, which is an invisible field of vibrating energy, often perceived as “empty space”, is the unified theory of everything, without which, nothing would exist. Spiritual (Hermetic) Sciences has known this for thousands of years, and its philosophical science is based on it. All new discoveries are simply rediscovering the same ideas and laws, viewing them through different models, and giving them different names. To know the universe, we simply have to look within and gain knowledge of our own mind, which exists as a smaller version of the greater Mind. As Hermes Trismegistus stated clearly thousands of years ago . . . “As above, so below, in the wondrous workings of the One great Thing”!
