The cosmic computer idea seems to incorporate the concept of a program within the computer. I am just talking about the hardware, not software, if the analogy holds...Actually that question arose-- what is the motive force behind the movement within the time/space matrix-- and I'm still working on it... Also, I see a lot about premature claims of enlightenment here. How much enlightenment is real enlightenment? When it is permanent. Do we then know as much as we will ever know? No, learning continues. Learning always continues, the demarcation between 100% enlightenment and 99% enlightenment being that the 100% sees the world and themselves as they are, whereas 99% doesn't, exactly. It is a funny thing and seems to involve a significant and unmistakeable phase transition, from 99% to 100%. The other observation I personally noticed is that I was far more aware of my blissful moments before. Now I don't notice bliss or transcendence or witnessing like I used to. It is weird and different, but I am adjusting to it... What does it matter? It doesn't, unless we are interested in such a thing. Before, I used to get quite blissed-out at random times, experiencing the so-called higher states of consciousness, like the time I saw and was with Guru Dev, I thought, this is it, I am there!!! and then WHAM... no such luck. Ha-Ha! Picked up the pieces and went on. So, its something to watch for. Probably lots and lots of bliss and witnessing is a good indicator that it isn't permanent. Sometimes I'll still have this bliss blasting out of the crown of my head, but that isn't enlightenment per se. It s a great feeling, but it isn't indicative of being truly free.
