There Is No Spoon
By Atom Bergstrom
According to Adano Ley (Swami Nitty-Gritty) …
“The eyes constantly oscillate, otherwise reality would disappear.”
“There is no spoon,” says the little boy to Neo in The Matrix movie.
“Reality” is your own residual self-image.
What is “real” is merely electrical signals interpreted by your brain.
“Do you think that’s air you’re breathing?” Morpheus asks in the same movie.
Robert Guffey, “Synchronistic Linguistics in The Matrix,” Paranoia: The Conspiracy Reader, Winter 2000) wrote …
“Morpheus offers Neo two pills, one red and one blue, an obvious parallel to the ‘Drink Me’ sequence in Alice in Wonderland. After he swallows the red pill Neo begins to, in Jack True’s terms, ‘wake up,’ (i.e., return to the first nature). The effects of the illusion of visual space slipping away from Neo is presented as an experience akin to an hallucinatory trip on LSD. Neo reaches out for a mirror, which represents visual space. To his surprise the mirror begins to dissolve and his fingers slip through the glass as if it’s made of viscous liquid.”
According to Swami Nitty-Gritty …
“Total convex vision is God-realization. You are the most unique radarscope when you slow the brain down to slow the respiration down.”
According to Paramahansa Yogananda …
“The spiritual eye is a metaphysical telescope through which one can see to infinity in all directions simultaneously, beholding with omnipresent spherical vision whatever is happening in any point of creation.”
