So just to add to your already great points BBB and MarkM...
yes! i am of the same opinion. to recognized god, and thus ourselves and our "circumstances" as being infinite and having infinite possibilities is the key, i believe. the knowledge of infinity is the greatest power.
the importance of the total concept of infinity -- infinitely small in one direction and humongous in the other -- is vital to our recognizing certain elements that can be extracted from the law of one.
hehe... and infinite time makes the whole wanderer thing null and void as well, in my opinion. because if infinity is a truth and we are all microcosms of infinity, then, we have no beginning or end. no one started on earth or will end on earth. we all have had infinite lives in any of infinite other worlds or dimensions.
pondering all this makes the idea of reincarnation seem an incidental footnote of mere transitory importance compared to the immensity of our total journey. yeah, we reincarnate, but trying to piece together the details may be more of a hindrance than a help to our journey...digging in the past may uncover some nasty past life stuff that would shock us to the core (aagghhh! how could i have done that??!!!) for example, i have a dear friend of whom i suspect that -- caught up in a religious frenzy -- gleefully lit the fagots at my (speculative) burning-at-the-stake experience some few hundred years ago...or did i do it to her? ) well, she does like cats, especially black ones.
it is like trying to think about being everywhere at once. seeing through every human beings eyes all at once. which is god. he is everywhere all at once. when we try to think about it our minds throw up the "blue screen of death" like an old computer that can't process that amount of info fast enough. some people have achieved this during a mystical experience in which they experience the infinity of god and being everywhere at once. but it is fleeting.
fascinating stuff! and it is weird because this goes right along with some stuff i have been thinking about lately.
it advances the profoundly radical idea designated as"the standing wave theory of matter". it proposes the concept that the totality of our very being/actions/thoughts is reciprocally registered instantly to all parts of the cosmos, and one can imagine that he/she/it is already in a sense indexed at any part of the universe, and thus can manifest there instantly....i.e., no time lag, no speed-of-light limitation. (admittedly this is very advanced stuff and not to be tried at home! )
so every little tiny "anything" in this world holds everything within. infinity is the secret behind miracles. how can you change something into something else? water into wine? because the water already is wine. the water holds everything already in it. and time is similarly compliant to our needs.
think of, for example, that the world is like a television screen (or lcd screen for the techies). and every pixel on the screen holds every possible color it could possibly need to be. this is the reason why the screen can show a seemingly infinite possibility of images. well everything is like this.
just to know that i live within the infinite gives me a certain liberating sense of power over my life and my destiny. so whenever someone says, "that is not possible", i have to say, "how could it not be possible within infinity?"
i am going to shut up now because i could ramble for a long time about this. this has really got me going. anyway, i loved reading your posts, bbb and markm. one of the few places i get to talk about stuff like this. and of course, like bbb said, this is just my opinion of the moment which is ever changing as i continually get hit with knowledge bombs that seem to totally rearrange what i thought i knew. and shows me that i really know very little.
