There is a parable in the New Testament about Christ Jesus asleep in the back of a boat during a storm whilst his disciples are terrified and go to Him to ask for His help.
This parable foretells Quantum Mechanics and of how light is both wave and particle.
Then this quantum function is seen to be able to connect to light in both descriptions.
When the parable is fully internalised it describes a journey to becoming a realised person. The storm is the interface with a person’s particular life experiences which are often calamitous and stormy. This is left brain experience. The Christ Jesus represents the wave function of light, invisible and omnipresent.
So, in the parable the storm and the boat full of disciples symbolise light particles, Christ Jesus symbolises light waves.
When concentrating upon the particles, the waves seem to collapse: when concentrating upon the waves the particles disappear. The mind is a quantum template designed to access the visible and invisible energy that is Light. It can only experience this design having left the Descartes conditioning. Stuck and broken Addiction exposes this mental shift in a personal spiritual recovery via the 12 Step vehicle.
The sheet below looks at an original awareness of the mind and of the pressure system that is the correct appreciation of simple, universal feelings as they produce complex, personal emotions.
Mind is a quantum device that is designed as the sixth sense to dock in a place of service such that it receives the input from the five senses plus the input that arrives through the animal instincts that are security, social and sex.
As a quantum device the mind eats this above mentioned input and thoughts are the peristaltic function of inward digesting from which meaning is made apparent and wisdom built.
Until this quantum template is returned to, the Descartes mind will ultimately eat itself which is the worry and anxiety that is now symptomatic of the disease of stuck and broken Addiction that is Mankind’s global epidemic.
So, this little parable gives a message that has travelled like a Zen koan to me over the centuries, that can be read only now in the light of modern physics that has now caught up with Ancient metaphysics.
I am all the characters in the parable. When in the storms of life it is as if my inner spirit has collapsed asleep. When I access my inner spirit, my problems calm down and virtually disappear.
