Everything we experience is the edges, the surface of things.
From the subtle vibration of the finest beginnings to the most violent galactic event. It is the front, the event horizon, the forward edge where everything happens.
Even the eye itself uses “lateral inhibition” of adjacent light receptors to sharpen perception and reduce noise – a technique since applied to digital image sharpening.
Now of course, the edge is what is experienced. This does not include who is experiencing and how they are experiencing. Put simply, it is attention and intention that stirs the edge into activity. It is the movement of consciousness that creates the experience. This same movement is the edge and the process and the knower of the edge.
Attention and intention. That is the cause of all things.
What are you thinking about? 😉
[Update – oops – I had described the example badly – fixed.]
An analogy might be useful. We go to a movie theater to see a film. The image itself is flat, reflected from a flat screen. It’s also a series of still images, shown fast enough that the brain merges them into apparent motion. This is easy enough as the brain neurons fire in bursts rather than being a continuous stream. So the images we see are assembled from packets in our brain/mind. And finally, the images on the movie film itself are a coating on one side of a flat film. (hence the name)
