Thoughts on Evolution

Ever since humankind have developed the ability to place their lives in context to a bigger whole, an internal drive and longing to explore and inquire has given rise to a number of universal and unanswered questions.

The development of religious and philosophical structures and systems led to an examination of the internal world and the mind. As the research evolved, more refined levels and frequencies, belonging to higher faculties were discovered, though often lying dormant. A variety of pranayama techniques were developed with the sole propose of defining what was to become known as consciousness. 
In the meantime, scientists came to the conclusion that the world is comprised of 108 elements, each element being made of atoms, each with a different attribute attached to it. Further research proved that the atoms were not the underlying basis of everything; that there existed another building material, which they named electron. With more refined devices they discovered that the electron had two properties: it is both moving and not moving and it acts like a particle and like a wave. This gave rise to a new definition —‘the quantum’, which means dual.

After years of more research, they discovered that on a very subtle level the electron is nothing more than an infinitesimal formless energy particle and that it is this particular energy, which can transform itself into an electron and subsequently into matter.

While the first group of people progressed in researching the external world, the second group, through focusing their attention inwards, had refined their techniques to such an extent, that they discovered a subtle, all encompassing, frequency known as the Universal Pulse of Consciousness, which is omnipresent throughout the whole universe and infinitely present in all there is.

Thus in time, Western science may well come to the same conclusion that the underlying building material is not an infinitesimal energy particle but the pure, ever expanding universal pulse of consciousness.
