The key of high seeing

John Lentz's essay Transposition is as concise and clear an exposition as presently exists on Quantum Cosmosophy, a term I have just this moment coined (and it will likely have a short life span). It is difficult, though, to put any label on a body of thought that (in my mind at least) is currently more of an inarticulable sensation than a coherent philosophical system. My own version of this is what you read in qubikuity, but I should explain that this all derives from John's original cognitions, though I put my own spin on it which I take full responsibility for.

The idea of transposition is, in short, that the "greater godbeing" (which you could call God, except that concept carries a lot of baggage) is going through a quantum shift in which it is evolving beyond this Creation, even as we here on earthplanet plane are being drawn into an inconceivable vortex of change. It is a parallel process. As the collective human mind awakens from its "world dream" which derives from the godbeing's own cosmic dream, the human story starts to completely unravel. As John writes: "Passing through the channels of the greater godbeing beyond, through the elemental godbeing walking the earth and into the human beings who are no longer moved by the passions of the race, the cosmic life force signals its intent to withdraw like a tide sliding back into the sea."

What does this mean? Is it all over? And if it is, does it really matter? Does it matter in the scheme of things that the dream we were dreaming the hour before morning got interrupted, then erased? Or to put it another way, if the universe were a Clint Eastwood movie, should we be surprised that there comes a time when, inevitably, the Man With No Name rides off into the sunset without a word or a glance backwards to the few bewildered survivors of the apocalypse He has wrought?

Wow, some profoundly poetic thoughts here. :)

I'm grokking this idea of our entire noosphere being nothing more than a burbling of froth on the water - ephemeral and transient. However, like John Lilly I see that our consciousness and that of godspace is all interconnected, seamless and ultimately indistinguishable. So rather than erasure, death is really an illusion, and experiential existence is a global continuity, with discontinuities only existing from our limited 4d space-time perspectives.

Thanks, Paul for the response to your comments, which are now on my blog site -- godspace.blogspot.com

I have made a brief comment about your post on my blog under the rubric of Divine Discontinuties. Paul, your introducing Lilly into the equation is right on, as far as I'm concerned, in the concept of what Lilly identifies a "supraself metaprogram." In scanning Programming and Metaprogramming in the Human Biocomputer I note that Lilly cites what has been a key text for in the reading history of both myself and John Lentz: Olaf Stapledon's Star Maker. Lilly summarizes, "One can conceive of other supraself metaprograms farther out than these, such as are given in Olaf Stapledon's The Starmaker (Dover, New York, 1937). Here the self joins other selves, touring the reaches of past and future time and of space, everywhere. The planetwide consciousness joins into solar systems consciousness into galaxywide consciousness. Intergalactic sharing of consciousness fused into the mind of the universe finally faces its creator, the Starmaker. The universe's mind realizes that its creator knows its imperfections and will tear it down to start over, creating a more perfect universe." Although this is not exactly a description of transposition - some other cosmic drama seems to be being played out here - it is the drama of an autonomous entity, one whose "reality" is of a different order entirely than ours.
