On a computer, full colour images are know as “24 bit” and have 3 “channels”, one each for red, green, and blue. These colours are blended to create the 16 or so million colours on your screen. But you may have noticed that you can set your computer screen to “32 bit”. Thats another “alpha” channel, just for setting values of transparency. To allow space without content. To perceive values of emptiness.
If we consider transparency further, we discover that all objects sit in transparent space. If space (and air) were not transparent, we would perceive a much smaller world. Like walking in a dense, dark fog. Even sound could not travel in truly opaque space.
If we look at the roots of reality in physics, we find that everything is energy and forces, moving in space and time. All of these are transparent. They can be measured but not perceived with the senses directly. If we look at the roots of reality in consciousness, we find the same thing. Consciousness, existence, and relationship are all transparent.
If you ask the question “Who am I?” or “What is real?”, our mind and senses lead us to conclude that what is real is what we perceive. But in actual fact, what is real cannot be perceived. It is all transparent. We only perceive the side effects.
However, as it is reality and as we are that, we can be it. We already are transparent.
