Everything in One
Having already used the term “singularity” in the previous point, we like to define it in more detail. It involves a perception perspective, which will subordinate all other superficial experiences – if we allow it to happen. The degree of permission depends on personal experience or how far someone has integrated this particular insight.
Singularity means in our context, the unity of all that is, not in a metaphorical, but a very fundamental spiritual sense. Everything is connected to everything, and the separation perceived in our everyday consciousness is a mere illusion – in Sanskrit, it is called “Maya,” or based on a well-known sci-fi classic, we can also call it “Matrix” here. It is comparable to the situation of a dreamer, who awakens to the fact that every person, every object, every action, and every concept created within his dream, is indeed himself. The dreamer was the one who subconsciously controlled everything, even if he was not aware of this fact during his dream state. Of course, there is also the possibility of becoming “lucid” during REM sleep, but that’s another topic.
The Creator experiences itself.
This analogy should only help us to illustrate what we mean by the singularity. Extrapolated into our everyday experience, we recognize that even everyday reality emerges from an all-embracing collective consciousness or spirit, which has split itself into myriads of individual fragments. The knowledge that you are one with all these fragments or different organisms, and also with the totality of all these units, is a form of super-consciousness. This super-consciousness is also known as the higher aspect of everything. It is this unity that is closest to what is mythologically associated with God. Aside from the fact that this God, neither judges nor evaluates.
Big Bang Theory as an approximation
Scientifically, you can approach this perspective with the Big Bang theory. Since we don’t want to be dogmatic here, we do not claim that this scientific statement is accurate or complete. Still, it is an excellent visual example, and because of that quite useful, it is one of those ultra-conservative doctrines that everyone heard of before, but no one can imagine.
“According to the Big Bang theory, all matter in the universe was once reduced to one microscopic particle – all matter we see in the universe has once been a material singularity.”
Even though most people are barely able to abstract, there is a force in the universe capable of squeezing their car into the size of a dice. Still, this idea of a physical singularity is perceived as more credible than the concept of spiritual oneness. However, the majority of people have accepted the physical singularity of the universe as a scientific fact, whereas the idea of spiritual unity is less accepted, even though all great wisdom teachings report about it. That may be because the spirit or the consciousness is hard to objectify by Western science. Nevertheless, it is evident. It is the experimental observer in quantum physics scenarios, in which depending on this very observer, the experiments take a different outcome.
Singularity as personal experience
For all the people who do not have the personal inner experience of the unity of all, this theory remains dare, and so it remains irrelevant to their daily lives, such as the Big Bang itself. It remains a mere concept, a belief, or even a mental pathology, but it changes everything for those who have experienced it. This personal perception may become awake spontaneously or triggered by contemplative exercises like meditation or Tai Chi. It is also possible to induce these states of consciousness by using pharmacological means like LSD, ayahuasca, and DMT. There is also the technique of Holotropic Breathwork™, which was developed by Professor Stanislav Grof. However, the methods of “pharmacologically” induced transpersonal states of consciousness are risky; therefore, it is not recommended by us.
Singularity as an ethical foundation
For us, the “singularity of all that is” is a fact. Hence, it forms the moral and ethical foundation for all our actions, which means: “Treat your next person, just like you like to be treated yourself!”. According to this, we do not follow this moral concept because we submit to any script, but rather because our “next person” is indeed an aspect of ourselves.
From this notion, the general psychological truism arises, which says, that characteristics or aspects, which we condemn in “other” people, often (always) reflect something, that we have not yet recognized in ourselves or which we have not accepted, however.
