We perceive an object sitting out there in space as varying intensities of light arrayed before us. In optical physics, such an object is described with a mathematical function that calculates the intensity of light at each point of space that the object displaces.
Optical physicists can manipulate imagery to reduce noise, which causes an image to appear more or less blurry. To the extent that noise can be reduced, an observer can perceive more of the detail that the image carries. Such an improved image is said to bear a higher resolution.
A “bar chart” is usually photographed to measure an optical system’s resolution. A bar chart comprises a bunch of three-line glyphs spaced more or less closely together. Each of those distinguishable glyphs in the final photographic image represents a number of lines per millimeter that the system can resolve. An observer characterizes a system’s resolution simply by picking out the finest bar chart glyph in the image whose lines can be distinguished one from another.
As described above, an object comprises light intensities arrayed in space. An object can also be mathematically described as an infinity of light waves coming together to form the object’s shape. Each of these light waves comprises a frequency, an amplitude of energy and a phase, which describes the wave’s displacement relative to that of the other waves. When changing an image’s characteristics—for instance, to reduce noise—it is easiest to operate upon the frequencies of the light composing the image, rather than its spatial intensities.
Enter the Fourier Transform
The Fourier transform is math that is used to describe a shape function, such as a light image, into its spectral wave components of frequencies, amplitudes and phases as describe above.
Note well: I am presenting the following technicalities because I will follow them with my insights into how they relate to the nature of divinely human consciousness.
In the 1960s, working as an optical physicist, I performed two demonstrations under contract with the Air Force and the Navy, both of which showed how the resolution—the degree of discernable detail—of surveillance photographs taken through turbulent atmospheric and underwater media can be markedly improved through a technique called spatial filtering.
Below, is a simplified schematic of s spatial filtering system in which:
- FL = Focal Length of a lens
- FT plane = Fourier Transform plane
- IFT = Inverse Fourier Transform Plane
light…….. 1 FL 1 FL 1 FL 1 FL
==> | () || () |
————Object lens FT plane lens IFT plane
The key to using this system to perform visual imagery cleanup is that parallel light traversing an object (a photographic image) and then passing through a lens one focal length away from the object forms an energy distribution one focal length beyond that lens. This energy pattern corresponds to the Fourier transform of that object’s shape, i.e., its component spatial frequencies. This system is called a spatial filtering system because each point of space in the transform plane corresponds to a particular frequency component of the shape of the object being imaged. That is, spatial filtering the Fourier Transform of the object is actually frequency filtering it.
Unlike a graphic artist using an airbrush to spruce up an image by changing the amounts of light in its shapely form, changing the amounts of light in the frequency spectrum of the object affects the entire image all at once. That is, filtering frequencies does not apply only to some portion of the object’s shape. It modifies everywhere in the image that the frequency brings about its effect. (I am omitting some other details of the system because they are irrelevant to the spiritual points I will be making below.)
The light in the transform plane can be manipulated to remove the frequency components of the noise that degraded the image. This is accomplished by recording on a glass photographic plate the spectrum image solely of the noise as it appears in the transform plane. This negative spatial filter photographic plate is then inserted into the transform plane and aligned with the spectrum of the object that is degraded by that noise. Thereby, the photographic negative of the noise subtracts the noise spectrum from the degraded object spectrum. Then the filtered transform is passed through another lens that is one focal length away from the transform plane. This produces the inverse transform, and an improved version of the original image forms one focal length beyond the second lens.
I’m telling you about this optical processing to let you know that I’m not just blowing smoke at you when I declare that high levels of scientific research and development use the ultimately unknowable, irrational natural dispensation’s expressions to manipulate space-time energy as a matter of course. Scientists effectively work with energetic effects without needing to know anything about their ultimate infinitely mysterious nature. That is, it makes no difference at all that the light being manipulated in space-time is actually an out-of-this-world mysterious expression. This will be seen as relevant in the spiritual discussion below
Spiritual Implications of Spatial Filtering
Thanks for sticking with me long enough to get through that technical overview of light imagery manipulation. Now we can get into the fun stuff.
The spiritual Path is exactly analogous to the spatial filtering system described above.
Infinite Light Input
First and foremost, spiritually oriented Life demands that original sin—the sense of separation—be eschewed. That is, all inputs to awareness must be parallel light. Real consciousness is always be attuned to infinity. Such attunement renders the perceiver an agent of the One.
Spiritual attunement perceives content from the fallen estate’s 3D polyglot as its twin-flame-union mandala. THAT infinitely focused Life, in and as the One, choirs Beauty I AM THAT I AM. THAT absent-but-apparent oriented alchemy blesses All with the personal Great Service of the One’s Great Service bestowed through divinely Loving conscious agency.
Objective Perception One Focal Length Away
The focal length of a lens is the distance away from the lens that parallel light comes to a focus. Remember, in the optical spatial filtering system, the object being analyzed must be one focal length in front of the first lens. It’s going to be hard to explain the spiritual correspondence of this to someone who has not experienced it but I’m gonna give it a try. Anyway, I figure most all of my readers have more or less experienced the following, or it is improbable that they would be here.
The focal length of your Being correlates to your personal divine Identity. Keeping all objects a focal length away from your humanly conscious imaging system is tantamount to Living as a Great Silent Watcher. As you go about your life, you’re certainly aware of the spatial distances confronting you. But, as you center your awareness beyond space-time, all that 3D visual perception seems to get collapsed. Again, the actual distances remain apparent, but inwardly it feels like you are looking at a plane movie screen. In other words, you remain unattached to your perceptions: in the world, but not of it.
Fourier Transforming Lens
Spiritually conscious Life pervades awareness as figure-eight flow. That is, Real consciousness holographically perceives apparent finitude as infinite Presence. Alchemical perception in and as the One partakes of “outwardly” encountered events not as a polyglot of hard and fast “things,” but a mandala that presents its in-formations as modulated frequencies. Chapter Twenty-Seven A of this book describes consciousness alchemically cycling around the Cosmic Clock. The section titled “Alchemically Traversing the Cosmic Clock,” describes Real consciousness processing awareness like a daisy. Such a Being throws off space-time’s illusory imprecations by continuously assuming the zero-point cosmic mean at the center of the Clock—at heart center. The “frequency” at which consciousness pervades its emptiness with THAT infinite mystery is a measure of its spiritual attainment. (N.B.: The word “frequency” must be quoted because human brains relate to that concept, but in Reality, time is not.)
In addition, the White Fire Cross of Creation purports figure-eight flowing consciousness as the simultaneous alchemy in the One upon the Cross’s horizontal bar and as the One upon the vertical bar:
- Horizontal-bar awareness remains Real by perceiving events as the magic of maya. This correlates to processing in-formation like the AM radio band, which distinguishes detail as varying amplitudes (intensities) of its component waves.
- Vertical-bar awareness remains Real by perceiving events as mysterious focuses of the entirety of the spiritual Hierarchy. This correlates to processing in-formation like the FM radio band, which distinguishes detail as varying frequencies of its component waves.
Thus, this AM/FM composite alchemical processing correlates directly with the spatial filtering optical system being discussed here. The first lens in the system corresponds to consciousness “outwardly” perceiving “things” (Amplitude Modulation) and Fourier transforming that perception as its corresponding spectrum (Frequency Modulation). The imagery that an eye lens focuses upon the retina pertains not only to shapely forms, but to the frequencies, amplitudes and phases of the waves they comprise. This lensing alchemy is what enables consciousness to operate upon its perceptions to spiritually clean up its act. Moreover, this “lensing” alchemy pertains not only to consciousness’s visual imaging. It also applies to its memories, thoughts and feelings.
Sequestering the Noise Spectrum
As with the optical spatial filtering system described above, consciousness must be capable of independently distinguishing the noise component of its input imagery. A spiritual initiate develops this skill by practicing being in the world but not of it.
Keep in mind, though, that spiritual Life has nothing to do with prancing about as a spaced out dummkopf. Although thoroughly aware of space-time’s illusory nature, you still need to get from here to there, buy groceries, and obey traffic laws. The fallen estate must be transmuted; but, it better not be simply flipped off. You need to “dress for success” at all levels at which consciousness engages space-time.
Subtracting the Noise at the Frequency Plane
The frequency plane of the spatial filtering system corresponds to your inner consciousness in its spiritually oriented resonance mode. Spiritual victory involves consciousness resonating the in-formation that the Holy Christ Self (Vishnu) holographically arrays through its Real imagery’s white fire cores. As you attune to THAT, the Living Presence of Your Real Self in All You perceive, it’s important to maintain Your awareness as a “man of war.” That is, every fallen-estate moment involves a battle because human perception confounds Real imagery with the maya of false conception that pervades the fallen estate’s 3D imagery. Moreover, grasping, gluey natured sirens are always there to tempt you to succumb to their separative, sniveling prostitution. Owing to our momenta involving many thousands of years of playing fall guy/gal to their enticements, Real Life is a tough row to hoe for us spiritually aspiring Ones.
You need to be able to use discrimination to discern the sense of separation’s polyglot and to differentiate it from Reality. This, usually subconscious, mechanism corresponds to creating the photographic plate of the noise spectrum in the spatial filtering system. Your resonance with grace enables You to render the maya of false conception as a negative spectrum and align it with the spectrum of your imaginary perceptivity. In effect, this discriminatory negative is Shiva using light as destructive interference to cancel out maya’s noise. THAT which remains of Your perceptivity is each moment’s clarified Real Image.
The above alchemical process is called surrender. What you surrender as an agent of the One is the consciousness mode that entertains the I-thou sense of separation as the maya of false conception.
Surrender is wholly different from simply being oblivious. We are charged with Being and that means that our human being must remain awake. Awake to the outer sirens, awake to our own compromised momenta, awake to Our Beautiful I AM Presence, awake to the One’s “ultimately,” transcendent infinite mystery.
Such awakened ongoingness invokes the cosmic comfort flame. Sleepy time life in lieu of THAT is akin to getting a tooth filled without novacaine.
Spirit’s Inverse Transform Lens
The spiritual correspondence to the spatial filtering system’s inverse transform lens is the divine Mother giving birth to the ever-new You, indeed, to the ever-new multiverse.
While the fallen-estate is not a bona fide element of divine evolution, the magic in maya IS. Even as eternally cognizant Cosmic Beings engage maya’s Beauty, They must also engage consciousness’s alchemical system that affirms the in-forming white fire cores of the One’s twin flaming basic immaculate maya. Thereby, Their Soul Art evolves divinity as Life’s infinitely mysterious, ever-spanking-new Presence. As an agent of the spiritual Hierarchy, THAT’s You caught in divine Love’s act.
Your Hubbly Bubbly Jaunt
As you clean up your act with Shiva’s spatial filters, You will live happy-ever-after. Bubbly all over, you will effervescently encounter the workaday world. I remember a friend telling me long ago about a bar he once went to—I think it was in Israel—called the Hubbly Bubbly Room. I still like that name as a reference to consciousness enjoying Reality’s personal happiness. Bubbling away, THAT continuously pops off like a Mary Poppins on quantum wing as everyday Life soars right here where I AM.
 I needed a secret clearance to perform this work back in the 1960s. Since then, it must have been declassified, since I found a Wikipedia article that details the system that my R&D lab (Technical Operations, Inc.) developed. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fourier_optics
