Understand matter and you understand gravity

There can be a confusion regarding the fact that love unites and fear divides, because love does not unite through condensing, but through empowering the connections that exist regardless of distance. As such, love is expansive and fear condenses. Considering the experience of vast bliss when connecting to the divine, it becomes clear that the material realm, or the realm of the manifest, which is so often bowed to by pragmatists/opportunists whereas idealists focus on the unmanifest as that which could be, is a phenomenon of fear. It is the realm in which we experience our self-manufactured separateness from the divine, the realm of the analytical mind that identifies differences as opposed to the synthetic mind which identifies commonalities.
And once you understand this as the driving force that manifests matter, you can understand the manifestation “matter” as a mere result, a symptom, of fear, and then you can see gravity as part of the same process; one could say inseparably inherent to the nature of matter. Look at what matter does: It gravitates (i.e. attracts) to its closest likeness. There might be other matter out there, but with increasing distance, attraction quickly fades, just like a person of little faith quickly loses devotion to things not in immediate grasp and is afraid of things from farther away which might have assumed somewhat different characteristics due to being in a different energy field. For a moment do the mental experiment and see gravity as matter’s nationalism or xenophobia. And thus, collectives form, held together by mere vicinity and familiarity, just like your typical loose fear-based alliance (sometimes labeled as a form of friendship). And like in such a nation, you find yourself tied to it by its overwhelming forces, struggling to deviate or distance. You might want to just fly away, but its energy field that you have been subjected to is pulling you back to it. And the only way this collective of fear allows you to ‘fly away’ is by sticking to its rules and thus further affirming them: Through things like explosive force or exploiting the pressure of heat, basically elemental violence (or just yang), you are allowed to circumvent the dictate, a little bit, for a limited time. Every effort to distance yourself from the pull reaffirms its existence.

Life: This is madness

Thesis: The universe is infinite.
Proof: self-evident. Our mind cannot comprehend infinity and we haven’t found the end of the universe, and deep within we know we can’t, because if we find its end, by definition there must be something beyond it, otherwise the whole game just continues as before. Infinitely.

Followup thesis: You do not exist.
Evidence: Nothing exists.
Proof: Something finite cannot exist in something infinite. Something finite in something infinite would have to be infinitely small, and infinitely small is still infinite; a concept based on infinity.

Conclusion: The only way you can exist is if you are infinite. And then you are everything and/or nothing. The former defies your definition as an existing entity, the latter means you do not exist.

We try to deny infinity the best we can by ignoring it most of the time, but it is omnipresent part of our experience.
Infinity is the almighty overwhelming power that can humble our ego by showing us our nonexistence.

Who dares to look?

It does not matter. You are looking all the time anyway.
