THE MEANING OF THE PRESENT MOMENT

[SNIP] From alpha to omega we have the one universal wave propagating
through endless pathways -- histories of events, recorded in any form of
consciousness that happens to be around. we also have the quantum waves
propagating from the omega to the alpha, going against the time stream
carrying information about the future all the way back to the past
alpha. These two waves continually clash against each other. They are
nearly always in opposition to each other.
But time to time across the immense range of time, starting with alpha
and ending with omega, these waves happen to coincide -- they meet in
phase with each other. Coincident waves tend to bundle into groups.
Those groups become parallel universes. Each parallel universe is much
like the other, but there are differences depending on the amount of
coincidence. The difference between one universe and the other is
measured by the lack of coinciding waves.
In a universe, the places where waves coincide, events occur. Something
physical appears. And with the appearance of a physical object, a
subatomic particle, an atom, a molecule, a cell, a group of cells and
practically everything else in what we call the universe, there is also
something else. That something else is intelligence, order, and
There is associated with every appearance of a physical object a site of
knowledge. When these sites of knowledge are grouped together in a tight
region of space alone, we have consciousness.
Thus consciousness is the resonant gathering of simultaneously present
quantum waves -- clashing waves of time -- one coming from the future
and one coming from the past. This defines what we mean by the present
or now. And in this manner mind emerges as the focal point of waves
coming from both the future and the past.
Looking at the human mind for a moment, we can use this picture to
construct how it is that we know something. Knowledge of a single event,
isolated from all other events, is no knowledge at all. Knowing without
a sense of the past and an anticipation of the future is no knowledge at
all. In brief, single data points without any reference to the future or
the past are not even recorded as data. they simply do not exist. Only
when there is confluence of past and future -- a relationship stretching
across time -- does knowledge present itself.
Knowledge or mind is then the relationship of future to past -- that
relationship appearing as, and creative of, the present moment.
Knowledge is thus equivalent to meaning, and meaning is only present
when there are two events -- a future and a past. Knowledge, meaning,
and time order then become synonyms.
To know is to put events in a time order is to have meaning. To have
meaning is to relate a pair of events. That pair is always oriented so
that one event is the past and the other the future. The place where
this knowledge occurs is the present. That which recognizes the present
Mind emerges as the organ that best recognizes the past and the future.
A mind without a past is no mind at all. A mind without a future is no
mind at all. Mind cannot exist with both past and future occurring
simultaneously. It is in the time separation that mind arises. This is
the meaning of the present moment.
