Brief and simplified discernment to further and better elaborate on ancient metaphors and paraphrases philosophy and science across cultures throughout the ages. And to support, strengthen, and complement past, present, and future experience and quests in the known physical world. And beyond:
Many ancient metaphors and paraphrases such as "I Am", "Always Been", "Incarnate", "Re-Incarnate", "Self and No-self", "God Head", "Sources", "Akashic Record", and "Akash Field", "Indra's Net", "The Universe Is In Thyself", "Thyself Are The Universe", "Made In The Image of The Divine", "Made In The Image of God", "As above So Below", and among others such as "Flux", "Impermanence", "Emptiness", "Dependent and Interdependent Origination", "Dependent and Interdependent Arising", (such as mentioned here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TyLxsJhTqBQ and among many others) have been misinterpreted and misunderstood throughout the ages since the sages and mystics could not explain nor construct the essence, nature, and ground of being (and becoming). And the essence, nature, and ground of nature (and becoming) (i.e. beyond comprehension, imagination, and words as expressed throughout the ages or since the dawn of species) them based on or due to such as the epistemic, language, social and cultural conditions and constraints, scientific process-method-resources, and consciousness-awareness or heart-mind of the days.
However, they can be simplified or explained scientifically and empirically through the collective diversity and pluralism, number, resources, and efforts such as through quantum science (and beyond). And collective experience (such as diversity and pluralism of individual and collective extraordinary senses; transcendence experience; individual and shared spiritual, OBE, and NDE experience):
The sages and mystics experience the intertwinement and entanglement of life and existence as dynamic continuous parts of sum of parts of parts of the greater whole through the subtle body-mind of the many sentient compositie body-mind system. And which are embodied and facilitated by or through universal process and mechanism of being and becoming as parts of sum of parts of wholeness since:
1.0 Life and Existence or All That Exist and Ever Exist is or has always been or "Always Been" and "Sources"
2.0 Universal intertwinement and entanglement process and mechanism implied parts and sum of parts of the greater whole are interdependent and interconnected such as past, present, and future of parts are intertwined and entangled as whole or "Dependent and Interdependent Origination" and "Dependent and Interdependent Arising". And as such, experience or perception of "Incarnation" and "Re-Incarnation" or past lives.
3.0 Experience of Oneness or Wholeness or the essence, nature, and ground of being (and becoming) was or can be expressed as "I AM" and "God Head".
4.0 Continuous dynamic experience as parts of sum of parts of the greater whole implied or indicated "Flux" and "Impermanence" or phases transition and emergence or process of being and becoming. Another simple way of saying is infinite and eternal potentialities of possibilities
5.0 "Self and No-Self" are description of the many sentient composite body-mind system.
6.0 Form-Formless are universal expression of spectra-field (such as energy, geometry, realms, frequency-phase-modulation or vibration, information, many body-system, many composite body-mind system, and among others)
7.0 The essence, nature, sand ground of nature (and becoming) as "Sources", "Akashic Record", "Akash Field", and "Indra Net". Another simple way of saying is universal information. And nature's epistemic and ontic processing and record.
8.0 The essence, nature, and ground of being (and becoming) as "God Head", "Akashic Record", "Akash Field", and "Indra Net" since 7.0-8.0 and 5.0 are intertwined and entangled.
9.0 Universal intertwinement and entanglement process and mechanism gave rise to fractal holographic parts embedded and embodied with nature essence as interaction of sum of parts of wholeness. And therefore, can gave rise to experience of "The Universe Is In Thyself", "Thyself Are The Universe", "Made In The Image of The Divine", "Made In The Image of God", "As above So Below".
10.0 Since parts and sum of parts are dynamically intertwined and entangled as continuous flux, impermanence, and transforming-evolving parts of the greater whole as simplified in the above paragraphs, implied that nothing has its own inherent intrinsic independent existence. And which gave rise to "Form", "Formless", and "Emptiness" expressions.
and among others or since these metaphors and paraphrases are expression of the interdependent and interconnectedness of life and existence, they can be emancipated or expressed in diverse interdependent and interconnected ways. And which can be totally incomprehensible if not familiar with the essence, nature, and ground of being (and becoming). And the essence, nature, and ground of nature (and becoming).
