Telescope: The telescope photo is an idea that gave rise and birth to this whole project. The following story is a metaphorical projection of my idea. A man at NASA is pushing his ambition to the max. He sees space in an intuitive sense, on the cusp of something very mysterious. Its contemplation suggests a deeper realization and revelation. However, he uses his ambition to pierce through its vastness. Deep inky black silence, sparkling stars, plethora of beauty. Each year he inches closer to discovering new theories. Inching closer to satisfying his hunger for truth.
One day…as he looks through his telescope, he sees something in the distance…he b squints harder…twists more knobs…all a sudden his own being comes into view. It’s him! But
this profound insight makes him realize somehow he’s always known this. He has come home.
Note: This shows object-subject become one. They are polar opposites of the same thing. This shows paradox with meditation because looking within shows and produces the same realization as outward (science) inquiry.
