I’ve written before about nested space. Every object we experience arises near instantly and in every moment in layers. We’re all familiar with how everything is made of subatomic particles, atoms, and molecules, but this is a scale. Everything also has layers of expression, from an impulse in consciousness though vibration, structure, field, and into form.
The level of vibration happens within space. Each object arises in a space from a vibration which then gains structure, fields, and form as it expresses forward through the layers. Some objects express all the way into “earth”, the physical. Other things don’t express as far, like thoughts and emotions.
The mind, both local and cosmic, is a space in consciousness, enlivened by self-awareness. We might call mind a field of lively alertness.
Feelings are fine flows within inner space, like air. Emotions are more expressed than mind as energy-intensive flows, like fire and water.
Other spaces are where we stash what we don’t want to experience. Typically this is an unresolved energetic node we shadow with layers of resistance. Once they become conscious though, they can be experienced and resolved. Then the energy is released, the burden is lifted, and another space is opened.
Experiences also create memories that are sustained in their own space with elements of structure and field. (air & fire)
Each role or persona we have – parent, partner, worker, friend, also has its own space with its own programs.
We are a nested set of ever-changing spaces, each defining a different aspect of our experience. We are a community.
