Rational question: Are you able to actually see

Space is 'decided' by extrapolation, based upon
certain assumptions which are derived from habitual
use of the sense-data of vision, hearing, touch.

In other words, if you really seriously ask
yourself if you can see space, what is the answer?

Is this an issue to dismiss, upon deriving a
certain depth, or are you able to discipline
yourself to delve ever deeper?

Have you decided that this is merely, after a
certain point, a play of semantics? If that is your
decision, then what... what position are you

Most importantly, of this issue of contemplating
the nature of space, is the understanding that the
position you take is your own responsibility.

{Only when space knows itself, will you find the
nature of position.}

And this is the issue, and if you have read
carefully this far, and have contemplated the
questions I ask, you may understand the issue of

If you take a position relative to space, you
are... and pardon me for being blunt... indulging
yourself in delusion. And that delusion is simply a
confession of ignorance. Your fear, and your
dissatisfaction, are consequences of taking a
position; you have made the classical error of
concluding on the basis of incomplete evidence, and
you may now be living the consequences of that

Angst... is derived, as a remainder, via the
mathematical process of subtraction, but the
calculation is deeply flawed, for you have not had
access to the true figures.

It should be easy to allow the echo of error to
fade, to once again start with a blank slate. But
if it is not easy, you are contaminated with a
hidden algorithm, which includes the unrest-state
as a necessity.

And this is seen easily by anyone who does not
need, who does not incorporate the unrest-state, in
their way of Being. Yet, it is invisible to those
who have as their handmaiden, the unrest-state, a
ready servant, the verging excitement of the risk
of toppling, and thus the eternal heroic quest for
balance and 'reason'.

Reason is helpless against the unrest-state,
because the unrest-state is akin and allied with
biological life and deeper, to the instability of
all compounds, of anything made of more than one
thing. So it can be said that the unrest state is a
'demon' in the original sense of the word, that
being a 'dumb force' or 'mere automaticity of

In this sense, the unrest-state is the force which
must be controlled, and the failure to control it
is the original sin, and more revealingly, it is
also the sin of Lucifer.

The unrest-state, if taken as a component of
reason, will always lead to error. The unrest
state, as an ally of matter, must be taken into
account in another way, as other than a component
of reason. The unrest-state must be assumed to be
'normal background radiation', and thus
nonvolitional, or in other words, involuntary.

So my advice is, to assume a position relative to
the unrest-state, rather than relative to space.
This position takes movement into account, not as a
force of reason, but as the primal push which can
be ridden upon or exploited, much like the radiance
of the sun, which as a violent photonic shower is
translated into biological life.

Being next to movement, allows rest. Being next to
space, is denial of your nature.
