Schrödinger’s Cat And The Buddha
The videos below will explain Schrödinger’s cat-in-the-box experiment. Basically, a hypothetical cat is placed in a box, and something very unpleasant may or may not happens to the cat. There are many possibilities, but until we open the box and see, we will not know. Investigations all depend on someone seeing the result. The whole point is that nothing is known until we look. Until then, everything remains just in the realm of ideas.
We are both the cat and the observer living in a universal box: we have many possibilities, and lots of things have happened to us, are happening to us and will happen to us, but we will not realise why … until we look.
If we are looking for the truth (or God), even if we find what we seek, it still remains that we are the observer, and therefore the final truth. We are the beginning and the end; the alpha and omega. Things may be happening in the universe that we do not know about, but if we do finally find out, it will still all depend on us, the observer, to verify them.
Whether what we find is true or not is irrelevant. What is true is our awareness of this finding or non-finding. Ultimately, there is only pure awareness of all possibilities.
It doesn’t matter whether we look or walk away, the answer will always be the same. And that answer is our own pure, conscious awareness; it’s not ‘something else’.
Wondering what is in the universal box is what drives us crazy, as we are merely concerned with ideas about matter, forgetting our perfect awareness which is perfect sanity.
Omniscience is seeing and knowing all possibilities:
the cat can be alive, dead, asleep, changed into a dog …
in time it will have become all possibilities, as we will have.
Ultimately, the cat will become enlightened.
Knowing everything there is to know
is ultimate knowingness itself.
Any emotion that exists in the universe, we have within us.
Likewise, pure conscious awareness that exists in the universe is also within us.
It is because of infinite rebirths that we have already gone through all possibilities:
every sentient being has been our mother.
Even the cat.
