/ In all chaos there is a cosmos; In all disorder a secret order. /
The deepest level of truth uncovered by science and philosophy will be the fundamental truth of unity. At that deepest subnuclear level of our reality, you and I are literally one. We are the creators not only of our own destiny, but ultimately we are the creators of universal destiny. We are the creators of the universe.
– John Hagelin, Quantum physicist, author
Transcendental meditation is a mental technique which allows any human being to ”dive within and experience subtler levels of mind and intellect and to transcend and experience an ocean of pure consciousness within”, at the very source of thought and being. Therefore this visual representation from the begining of the article represents ”the ocean” within every human being and this ocean is an ocean of consciousness – unbounded and infinite. Today, famous artist and movie and TV director David Lynch is an avid proponent of the transcendental meditation (TM) movement and has even founded an organization dedicated to the teaching and promoting of TM.
Also, John Hagelin’s work helped greatly to develop the most convincing mind-working model yet for a concept in physics known as the – Unified Field Theory. The Unified Field (Unified Field Theory – UFT) is an attempt to combine the disciplines of both quantum mechanics and general relativity to link all aspects of physical reality in a single mathematical model. Yes, it is yet unproven, but considered to be the holy grail of physics, and science in general, and Hagelin thinks that the Unified Field can be very well defined by current string theory.
As modern physics has probed deeper levels of nature’s functioning, it has revealed that more fundamental levels of nature are progressively more unified.
As we go deeper and deeper with our scientific inward journey, the four fundamental forces of nature deep within the atomic nucleus slowly become three… and two. And, ultimately, we get to One unified field of all the laws of nature. In physics, UFT is a type of field theory that allows all that is usually thought of as fundamental forces and elementary particles to be written in terms of a pair of physical and virtual fields. According to the modern discoveries in physics, forces are not transmitted directly between interacting objects, but instead are described and interrupted by intermediary entities called fields.
For over a century unified field theory remains an open line of research. The term coined by Albert Einstein, who attempted to unify his general theory of relativity (GTR) with electromagnetism (the electromagnetic force). The potential Theory of Everything and Grand Unified Theory are closely related to unified field theory, but differ by not requiring the basis of nature to be fields and often by attempting to explain physical constants of nature.
Being at the very level of the unified filed of non-existence
John Hagelin graduated in physics in 1981 and began his post-doctoral research at the CERN (The European Organization for Nuclear Research) for less than a year. By now he published over 70 papers about particle physics, electroweak unification, grand unification, supersymmetry and cosmology in many academic scientific journals. He also co-authored a 1983 paper in Physics Letters B, “Weak symmetry breaking by radiative corrections in broken supergravity“, that became one of the 103 most-cited articles in the physical sciences in 1983 and 1984. As dr. Hagelin also happens to be the current leader of the TM movement, he claims that using meditation you can dive into the vast ocean of pure consciousness, in the same manner as Lynch often describes, too – that our minds are joining with the Unified Field at the base-level of physical reality, where everything in the universe becomes One. His views on meditation, as if properly understood and practiced, can be a systematic technique to experience deeper levels of mind and these deeper levels of human intelligence probably correspond to the direct experience of deeper levels of intelligence in nature. This inward flow of the awareness quickly culminates in the direct experience of the Unified Field from human perspective viewpoint.
The deeper levels of mind and deeper levels of intellect correspond to deeper levels of matter. At the borderline of intellect, you transcend, experiencing Oneness – pure, unbounded, infinite consciousness. The same as the nuclear bomb splits an atom, setting off a catastrophic chain reaction and then we dive within… Deeper and deeper into the blast and then deeper and deeper still, smaller and smaller particles… until we go past the smallest particles and then we transcend.
Going beyond particles to the Unified Field, the vast ocean of consciousness.
Stars, moons and planets all remind us of protons, neutrons and electrons.
Is there a bigger being walking with all the stars within?
Everything that is a thing emerges from this field of “no-thing“.
Hagelin’s physicist colleagues may not be convinced, but David Lynch certainly believes him and creates films and TV shows accordingly. Lynch in some of his works often compares coming up with creative ideas to catching fish (”Catching the Big Fish: Meditation, Consciousness, and Creativity”) and these ideas are swimming in this ocean of consciousness. You don’t go in there necessarily to get ideas, but you go in there to expand that container of bliss. And then, when you come out all energized, refreshed, blissful, then those ideas are easier to catch.
It’s like the net goes deeper and deeper and deeper, until you can catch those fish.
David’s Twin Peaks is fueled by these ideas, so the Fireman’s electrical generators, which power the television dream, must be drawing ideas up out of this ocean as fuel for the electrical fire. David Lynch is just channeling, as he said, the ideas into the airwaves that fuel and shape the fire in our TV sets.
Inside one of the Fireman’s idea-powered generators is Phillip Jeffries, who describes the interior as, “slippery“:
It’s slippery in here.
What might this mean?
Is Lynch saying that ideas are slippery like fish? Could be. Or they could be slippery like something else:
Uncle Leland, what is that smell?
It smells like something’s burning!
Oil can be fuel for fire and since Bob is described numerous times as smelling like scorched engine oil, his fire must be fueled by this engine oil. But, oil is also a slippery lubricant – there must be oil inside the Fireman’s machines, fueling the fire that they generate. Fire makes light as well as causing destruction and since the oil that powers Bob’s destructive fire takes a literal, physical form in the show.
Does this mean the oil that fuels the light of investigation also takes a literal form?
