Reality and dimensions of a reality.

I spend a lot of times on forums discussing different ideas. Most of these discussions are interesting and I learned a lot of things.
The reason why I wanted to write this post is to share an idea I came up with. I believe that behind each reality, there are an infinite numbers of dimensions.
For example, take a simple stone. Most of you will say the stone exist, because we can see it, because we can touch it, because we can feel it, etc…
Ask a scientist, a poet, a theologist or a philosopher to define that stone, and you will have different definitions. These definitions will be as different as there are individuals. These definitions are what I call here the different dimensions of a reality.

This becomes more complicate when we talk about the dimensions behind some words. However the words are real, they tell impalpable, intangible or transcendental concepts and ideas.
Whatever is your belief,( is it god that created men or is it men that created God), the word God is a reality, as well as the word soul, dream, love hate, etc…
It becomes interesting to see the different dimensions behind these words.
If you ask the scientist the philosopher the poet, the theologist to define these words, you will have some very different, sometimes antithetical definitions, yet these words exist.

When it comes to a personal growth matter which is the main subject of this blog; I would say that behind the reality of my existence, I am a multidimensional being.
Some of the dimensions might please me, and some others might not, but I am (understand here I exist). It is up to me to know my essence and define my own dimension of the reality “I” so as not to been lost in all theses dimensions, and not to confuse and restrain the reality "I" with one of its dimensions.
What I mean by essence is well explained by Harvey Avatar as "truth" in his blog being and quirkiness.

This reminds me of Walt Whitman's famous remark:

"Do I contradict myself? Very well, I contradict myself; I am large, I contain multitudes."

That's why I write aphorisms, not essays. Because I realize that we call truth or reality has an infinite number of masks and faces.

All I know is that I know nothing. ;) I like the fractal appearance of the artwork in this post. I'm totally into fractal geometry right now.

:-) I love this quote NP!!
I can feel what you are saying in your aphorisms!

angelshair said...

Yes Lana this was made with a fractal. Aren't fractal funny? I sometimes just like to lost myself in them :-).

Thanks for the heads up ;) I wish "Avatar" were here to answer... it would be more simple...

I think people who connect with their substance/soul tend to be simple (as substance is indivisible), where the others tend to remain mired in complexity.

As for the different dimensions of reality, metaphysics/first philosophy (which is the science of sciences) enables to climb to the first principle of a reality - beyond which ones intelligene cannot go. :)

@Shane: *LOL*!!

@Being and Quirkiness:
"Beyond wich intelligence cannot go",...exactly!!! amazing! I wish I could have a chat with avatar about that :-))!

I see on you book favourites that you like Carlos Casteneda - he has a lot to say about dimensions.

I haven't read him in years; now you've reminded me and I will have to do so again.

angelshair said...

Indeed, Castaneda has a lot to say about dimensions. It might be interesting to re-read his books, the second regard on a book is always different. I might follow your example :).
