The existence of opposites provides a meaning to a word. The word by itself is devoid of any meaning without the presence of its opposite, for example; good is known because of its opposite bad, otherwise what good is could never be known. The opposite is a word as well, which gets its meaning from the word it gives meaning to, which is nevertheless without a meaning by itself. Therefore, since opposites are in everyday life, it only means that the quantum nature of meanings is a word with its opposite in the same moment. This implies that the meaning which you do not want is also present in the meaning that you do want, for example right or wrong. If man understood this mysterious phenomenon of the opposites in the mind, every relationship would be harmonious – Academy of Advaita.

opposites

"The ALL is a union between Nothing and All possibility, the ultimate opposites, and the nature of that union is without beginning or end, for these two opposites automatically and simultaneously create each other. The result is a "cosmic copulation" whose effect is an infinite, living mind"

Melanie, "The ALL is a union

Melanie,
"The ALL is a union between Nothing and All possibility, the ultimate opposites, and the nature of that union is without beginning or end, for these two opposites automatically and simultaneously create each other. The result is a "cosmic copulation" whose effect is an infinite, living mind"

Response:
If the effect of cosmic copulation is an infinite living mind, it implies that cosmic copulation is the cause, which implies that cosmic copulation (cause) is the beginning of the effect (living mind). But the nature of the union between Nothing and ALL possibility is without beginning or an end, which in turn implies that cosmic copulation results in a living mind is an impossibility.

Dear marcus

Thanks for your comments.

How is what you say here known, and by who...? ''A living mind nevertheless exists with opposites mysteriously''

Surely for this to be known would require semblance of effect as evidence.. ? albeit all known effects are without cause, therefore unknown, creating the idea of opposites.

In this case, the effect must be the cause, but to know this would require conceptual understanding ie: ''copulation'' as the only way of verification?

Thanks.

Or to put another way.. The birth of mind is created in the exact same moment of conceptualization... prior to which there is no-thing or mind = death.

Melanie, What is said here is

Melanie,
What is said here is known either by the ego or by an evolved ego i.e., the witnesser, both albeit illusory, including words written on the computer, because the computer functions because of light.
The evidence is either the illusory ego or the witnesser.
Ego, witnesser, cause, effect and opposites are mysteriously present and yet not present.
Deep understanding reveals that the ego, witnesser, cause, effect and opposites are mysteriously present and yet not present. They are neither conceptual understanding nor copulation, because copulation is a concept as well.
Birth and death are in the same moment IN life, and not in the same moment of conceptualization. Birth and death are concepts in an illusory moment Of the mind.

Thanks marcus

Yes, I totally see this from the deeper understanding. When everything is already whole,boundless without beginning nor end... here there is no room for disjointedness.

Any apparent disjointedness is simply this already present whole always present now.
