...Death whether Physical, Emotional or Psychological comes with spiritual enrichment.Eventually every End is marked by enlightenment or the energy for new beginning.We need this disorder~order nexus to continue flourishing.
Enlightenment yes is the ultimate goal.Why is it then some discover this inevitably in life?
Qur’an 16:36 says: Of the people were some whom Allah guided and some on whom Error became inevitably established.
Bhagwad Gita says :
“prapya punya-krtam lokanusitva sasvatih samah
sucinam srimatam gehe yoga-bhrastobhijayate”
The unsuccessful yogi, after many, many years on the planets as pious living entity, is born into a family of righteous Or transcendentalists who are great in wisdom. On taking such a birth, the yogi again revives the divine consciousness of previous life, and tries to make further progress in order to achieve complete success. By virtue of the divine consciousness of previous life, they automatically becomes attached to the yogic principles — even without seeking them.
Only unto one who has unflinching devotion does transcendental knowledge becomes automatically revealed.
They proceed towards Actuality from Potentiality if we go by Aristotle’s Theory of Causation.
Aristotle after observing the empirical world closer enough held that everything around us is moving or changing in some way. It is in a state of constant change or Flux much like Buddhist Theory of Impermanence that asserts all conditioned existence in “transient, evanescent, inconstant” state.
And because everything is changing Aristotle argued that everything is moving towards some sort of goal some sort of purpose or end or final destination (‘Telos’-as he referred to it).
He argued all matter either possess potentiality or actuality i.e. something possesses the potential to reach its purpose or it has already reached its purpose.Let’s imagine a seed which holds the potential to become a tree. And when it becomes a full fledged tree it has reached its actuality or ‘Telos’.
Aristotle further argues as everything is in a state of constant change, this change must be caused by something or some agent that propels it from potentiality →Actuality .
Now, If Reality is a Computer Simulation (..and if we believe we are in simulation controlled by Pac-Man -an acronym for “program and control”) then is this ‘Telos’ a programming construct inserted intentionally for us to loop into with little or no control ? In which case our choices do not change and those events are destined to be experienced.
Whats next for those who discover or acknowledge this essence early in life?How are they to be controlled and executed further by Pac-Man.
Have they reached ‘Telos’ or reaching ‘Telos’ is beginning of another ‘Telos’ in itself with infinite ‘Telos’ waiting ahead……..
Is there something like a transcendent metaphysical ‘space’ that you in some sense occupy once fully liberated? Or is it a bit more mundane, just freedom from the mindless reactivity to causes, to conditions, that would otherwise control you?
