The eyes are the window to the soul.
Michael has put a lot of effort into this topic's introduction - and his responses to folks - and for the most part, most of what folks are offering up are 'perception'. Yeah, we certainly have our senses via which perception is made of not only ourself but also the entirety of existence surrounding us...I 'feel' the wind; I 'hear' the wind; I 'smell' the wind; I 'taste' the wind...but it is only through what the wind interacts with that we can 'see' the wind.
Wind on water, or across fields of grasses...through the treetops or kicking up dust. The same can be said for magnetism and electromagnetism where our eyes are drawn to the effects these have upon things, rather than the magnetism/electromagnetism itself...well, except for plasma, which as much as can be understood was the very first exhibition of the Universe coming into existence as the moment of 'the big bang' erupted into plasma, drawing forth all kinds of energy from whatever it was that allowed such an event to occur. A plasmic fireball containing all the architecture of what would occur within this Universe of ours...
...like a scream of 'Eureka; I AM let loose!'
Funny how sound has a connotation of needing ears to hear it, or depending on its frequency, it can be felt. Hmmm...
"First there was the Word"...but that means the Word had a mind to define what that word meant, and that there was something to receive the Word and a mind to understand what that Word means. OR...the Word is actually like pi and its unending accumulation of digits to express it...the Word as being the longest thing that cannot be fathomed but unfolds, giving description and definition to the very existence of the Universe itself.
'I was drawn to it like a magnet'...or the magnetism of something drew us to it...the effect of what that magnetism has upon us or upon something, not only as something for us to experience as a moment in time and its associated event, but also as us being either an audience or a participant to that event. Are we supposed to just witness, or play a role?
A bar-magnet beneath a paper covered in iron filings shows the magnetic forces spreading out from the magnet; depending on how strong the magnet is depends on how far its influence exerts...but then we have free electrons roaming about which, from a very vast distance, can be drawn towards a proton or nucleus and fill in a gap in creating an atom or molecule. What kind of magnetism exists for such a thing to occur? Or is it a case of 'time' creating 'continuation' for things to play their parts in?...E=MC2 don't forget, and electrons/protons/neutrons have very little mass and yet so much energy.
Ah...but magnetism keeps the electron/s in place in their respective shells so-as the atom or molecule exists...strong and weak nuclear forces...ah, such attraction in such things.
Hacking the Matrix, so to speak...hacking time, hacking events, hacking that moment when the participants reveal their roles as the creation of a moment that is part and parcel of Existence itself is laid down as a matter of fact. And I was drawn to a great EYE in Western Australia, and traveled around the Pilbara area (look at Australia upside down and you see that EYE with its eyebrow) to let it absorb me and me absorb it; and twice I escaped my own demise, and felt it was time to come back home, and took myself to a particular plane and particular seat and sat across from a woman whose eyes were the greenest I had ever seen...the very ones I had dreamt of since a child.
And I knew that we are the masters of our own destiny if we but listen and feel what life wants us to learn about. Sure, some can use tarot cards or astrology, or just live and experience...but no matter all the times I had escaped the moment of my own demise, nor all the times I was in the right place at the right time, sitting down in that seat and seeing the lady next to me cemented something that I had only let be a shadow to me: How do we perceive our own existence within this Universe? And are we correct in what we believe...or just plain, batshit crazy sometimes.
Great minds throughout history have expressed things that make sense...philosophies, religions, beliefs, sciences, music, but how much thought went into those things before they were announced? How much ridicule did someone give to their perception before they were left beyond a doubt? How many of us right this very moment have our own personal view of who we are which in no way mirrors another's personal view...and are we the crazy one or is everyone else because we are not all the same at all...not like atoms, electrons, photons, energy.
Individual we are, and can subscribe to another's way of expressing something...such as the AEs trying to express things in images that have so much more meaning to them than a plain old word:
"Did the ancient Egyptians find a way to hack the matrix?"
Well...how about they translated as best they could what those before them knew beyond a doubt: Can we mold the future that should occur rather than could occur?
Of course we can...the infinitesimal feeding the infinite and aging this ouroboros of time...
Just follow The Way...your way...your Tao mind, you diamond.
