Train of Thought

A thought that occurred to me today, in rough form:

If you were a being that could know the laws of nature completely, the deep mathematical structure of reality, M theory or whatever is deeper and more all-encompassing, or to be specific, say, the laws of our universe...if you knew that, maybe you still couldn’t look at those laws and see everything that would come from them, the limitless unbounded glorious complexity, the worlds, the stories, the beauties hidden there, because those emergent phenomena look so different...but maybe it only seems one could not anticipate them because we imagine they must be seen from the middle world, as we see our world...one day the veil may fall, we will see more and more with the eyes of the One...we will see everything, not just the middle world, we will see the seed and the tree united, each in the other, we will see the mathematical structure as it truly is, and hence see the worlds and “trees” hidden so deeply within it, and we will see in the high and intricate and complex branches of reality, the same seed, the same structure, the same theme underlying all, and that is from the One, and through the One, and to the One, who utters Himself in the seed and the tree and sees all things, all things, all reality, the One and creation, and what proceeds from Him is himself, in the seed and the tree...all things will be seen, all will be known, everything connected to everything, and even if it is not known to us, and it never will be fully, it is seen and known and realized in the One, blessed be He.
