    Sometimes when I think about all the planets, and suns, and all the other stuff out there in an infinite universe it makes me wonder what is all this stuff ? God or no God what is all this massive amount of stuff about ? I've seen diagrams of the way our local universe is laid out, and it somewhat looks like DNA structure . Could it be we are like cells in the body making up the whole of the body ?Maybe we are the universe, and that is the grand illusion There is no seperation from the whole .

    It is indeed a bit of a mystery. What is it that "has" properties? We can divest something of a property, like color, and there is still something there. What is there after we divest it of all its properties?

    Maybe if we strip all the properties away from something, there is nothing left. Maybe it's God, chuckling.

    Its a (re)introduction to Ourselves. A reminder for anyone who dares open their eyes and take a walk at night, who will not bow down ,not submit to the appeal of materialism but rather hook up with that ellusive "something" that is definately there all the time, but which we cannot lay a finger on ..

    I am posting after a long break due to enormous work and domestic pressures. My own thread of "Our View of Death " lies untended by me. It is gone stale now. But I could not resist replying you. Yes, indeed, behind the Manifest Reality which is our extremely dynamic and to that extent unreal world, lies the Unmanifest Reality.The Unmanifest Reality is called by many names and God is one of the many names. This is the standard belief and philosophy of Hinduism.

    I know what you mean but I fear we are much much smaller than a cell.
