A scientist without the tools to measure radio waves could demonstrate by manipulating certain radio parts that he could affect the sound the radio was generating and falsely claim proof that the radio was the origin of the music.
I have always loved this radio analogy ( I love analogies) In some ways the Life we call matter is Living analogy, you just have to be able to interpret it, look at it, read it correctly.
Anyway, the radio analogy is a good one---Yes, as I see it, we are much like a radio;
It is as if the Whole Universe is one big celestial symphony, as if God is the vibrations, the sound, the playing of the stings, the drums, the reverberating of God's Heavenly Voice, It's Song of Life, It's Love Song and the rhythm of Its Eternal Love ---and this body is the like a transformer, the radio that picks up the signals and manifests the world of form and things which is really the Symphony Being Heard. As in; the world we see, the world that seems like an objective world, the world that appears to objective forms that we "look around" and call matter, time, space and things is really more like the the music being heard, being seen, known, witnessed---- just in the same way we hear the symphony when we go to hear an orchestra play.
Also, the beauty of the music analogy is that there is only Symphony being played---we hear a symphony in total, not in notes, not in chords. We hear the whole sound of the total symphony. Even though the symphony is made is made of single notes and chords, It really is nothing quite so beautiful until the all the notes and chords are come together and placed precisely just so, as the create a true Heavenly Concerto Masterpiece, with ups and downs, and slows and crescendos, grand fortissimos, and poco a pocco, pianissimo and bursts and pounding---the whole Wonder of It all.
The radio is the thing that finds the Music, the Music of the Spheres, and makes it available to be KNOWN, heard, seen, felt---made evident.
The world of matter is the Living Evidence of God-- This world is the Song Heard.
Or I can think of the radio idea as also more like a projector.
We are the projector of the Light, the Divine Light flows through us, hits the film, shines through the film and then to make the movie, the images, the story appear on the screen; the holographic universe.
We stand like the projector between the Eternal Infinite Light, the Information, which is God's Light and Sound being passed through us, then to see the images made manifest.
But the movie, the images, are interpretations of The Ineffable One Intelligent Light being projected 'through us' (its' aspects of Its self as the instruments to make the Movie happen)---
If we have a clear lens and a steady, solidly stable base and if we are sitting true, balanced, evenly upon the table---as the projector, we are apt to see a much better movie, we will project the film with more true appearances, we will see an understandable story, a movie that has meaning and purpose and reason.
If the movie is clear, then we can know what the movie is about and learn from it, maybe it is a documentary, an educational film, or maybe a long tale of mystery and intrigue, or maybe an industrial film, or could be a marvelous fairytale of magic and magic kingdoms and war lords---What we are watching we could understand better and learn from if we were tuned to right channel or had our lens in focus--- this movie is for us, for us to know the message, the meaning, to know what it is telling us.
If we are an unstable, wobbly, projector with an out of focus, twisted, dirty lens, foggy lens, we will project a dirty, distorted, less than 'true' movie (yes, the law of attraction is our very nature, manifestation is in action all the time). We won't be able to understand the film, the story, nothing will make sense to us.
Or if we are a radio that is out of tune, off station, on AM (objective view) when the music is being broadcast on FM (subjective view) then we won't hear what is being played, or we will get a lot of static and we will not be able to hear the beauty of the symphony being, and we will think there is nothing but garbled noise going on, and we will be adamant that there is nothing but a confusing cacophony of confusing sounds going on, because that is exactly what we hear.
No one could convince us there a symphony to heard, if we are tuned to the wrong station.
We could not project, or tune in and broadcast, hear, see, witness, KNOW the Exceptionally Marvelous, Masterpiece of The Divine Symphony going on, if we stubbornly insist that there are no other stations on our dial, on our turner.
Whatever we call the 'device' that makes the unseen seen
or makes God Known---We know it takes the whole (totality of self as a human being) projector, the whole radio, the whole transistor to be in line, adjusted aright, secure on the table.
That means we should know that the very intelligence of the Heart is also involved, the Unbound Knowing of the Soul, the eternal presence of Spirit, the honesty of the Gut, the Divinity of Mind, the mechanics of the Brain, the Mystery of the Intuition, the divine Love that expresses as a sense of ego, the sense of individuality, and each otherness--- each radio with a uniqueness, which includes the feelings and emotions, all filtering together to make the music heard "appear tangible" from your radio ---
and also, we know a radio can't just play a tune with only the 'tubes' (brain) or if the cord is plugged but there are no parts inside. Or if the wires inside were not connecting---we'd not be functioning as one fine radio, or one complete perfectly running projector. However, we should and could know that the Symphony was still going on, that the Symphony is being played whether we are tuned in or not. Whether we have all our parts or not, the PERFECT Symphony of God's Infinity is Being All That Is. and Includes all That You Are.
You need your gut, your heart, your spirit, your soul, all your parts make the radio more likely to tune into the Grand Celestial Song of Life---or to see a Marvelous Movie before your eyes, projections, images, holographic scene telling the Full Glorious Story of God's Love and Beloved I Am.
This is all just analogy and analogy is never exact---but, it gives the idea of "what is" and how it all works.
Ok, anyway, thank you WW, you always evoke recognition of my own understanding and I just wanted to share a little bit here.
You are not finished, until you play in that meadow and live there. You can, you know. But only you can take yourself there.
