Present = Infinity = Awareness

Notice a few “similarities” between the Present and Infinity. (As will be shown, the Present and Infinity really are not two separate things, having similar qualities—but simply different words for the same quality-less One).

It was shown earlier that Infinity really means no-finity. This means Infinity has no finite qualities whatsoever. It means Infinity involves nothing observable or measurable–there is nothing noticeable about It–for anything noticeable would be finite. So when speaking of Infinity, one cannot speak in terms of size, amount, time, or any other so-called finite qualities or characteristics.

As Infinity is that which has no measurement, then Infinity is not a huge quantity. Contrary to what is often believed, Infinity is the absence of any quantity—for any kind of quantity, even a huge one, would be at least partly countable or measurable, and therefore finite.

Infinity is not enormously big in size (nor extremely small in size, as in infinitesimal). Infinity is the complete absence of size. Infinity does not mean an endlessly long time, because any amount of time, too, would be measurable. Infinity is the absence of time, or is time-less—just as in the Present there is no time.

Just as Infinity has no measurable size, the Present has no size. Just as Infinity has no spatial measurement, neither does the Present.

There is absolutely no size, space, distance or dimension in the Present. There isn’t so much as a millionth of an inch of length, width, height, or depth of distance in the Present. Most emphatically, this means the Present is not “present at all points throughout physical space.” The Present does not “fill” or occupy space. Why?

If there were space or even the smallest amount of distance in the Present, it would be possible to move from point A here, across space, to point B, over there. But such movement would take time—of which there is none in the Present. The instant one has movement in time, one has left being present. Any movement in space, which involves time, would be a state of not-the-present, instead of what-is-present.

Because the Present is the absence of time and the absence of size and distance, then the Present also must be the absence of anything measurable. It would take time to measure any kind of measurement. And for something to be measurable would mean it has some kind of size or other quality–yet there is no such in the Present. In other words, the Present is the complete absence of measurement, just as Infinity is the absence of measurement.

Has the Present Itself ever appeared or been seen? Of course not. Has the Present ever been touched? Has It ever been counted? Of course not. Has Awareness ever been seen or touched? Is there ever anything else present besides the un-seeable, un-touchable, immeasurable Present Itself?

In the same way, the Present has no weight. The Present has absolutely no form that could be weighed. It would take time for a form to be formed or observed. For weighty matter to be formed, it also would take time—of which there is none in the Present. In the same way, Infinity, being measureless, has no weight, no form.

Just as the Present has no weight, ask yourself how much Awareness “weighs” to Pure Awareness. It is the same One. How utterly weight-less is Awareness to Its own Awareness? This is the One being You now. This is all that is present!

Just like Infinity and the Present, Awareness has no form. Infinity, the Present, and Awareness is this same weightless, timeless One. It is being infinitely aware and presently so–but not in space or time.

Equally, has Infinity ever been seen, touched or counted? No! It’s because the Present, Infinity, and Awareness are the complete absence of all finite, measurable, observable, or limiting quantities or qualities. They are absolutely un-limited. Though we do our best here to point with words, Infinity and the Present actually are incapable of being described or conceptualized, for that, too, would be a mental measurement, a limit.

This “description” of the Present and Infinity as indescribable also happens to be an exact “description” of Pure Consciousness, Awareness, Being, Now, and other terms—for they, too, really cannot be finitely described. And all these terms really are pointing to the same ONE indescribable Infinite “Stuff” being presently aware here, now.

So, when the words present or the Present are used in our writings or on this website, they refer to that which has zero distance, zero time, and zero describable qualities–yet which is presently alive. (In light of the foregoing, you may wish to go back and reread chap 17, The Immediacy of All.)

This undeniable “perspective” forces a redefining of what always has been called “the present”—which is typically assumed to mean “everywhere present” or being present at all points in space, all points of dimension. (It is this mistaken, finite definition of present that usually is mis-read into much spiritual literature).

Most emphatically then, this Infinite-Present is not the same as what is usually mistakenly called “the present” on a human basis, or “living in the now.” That kind of “present” would be merely a momentary or fleeting “present moment” or “now-instant,” in time’s flow from past to future. It still involves or co-exists with time. In philosophy, this kind of present is called “presentism.” Presentism is the name given to this would be “momentary present” that the finite senses and thinking experience as a “now moment”—but one that is co-present with a flow of time.

This clarity that the Present is pure Infinity shows in another way why It is not sandwiched between, not co-present with, past and future time. As the Infinite-Present is the absence of time, and only Itself is present, then the Infinite-Present is the utter preclusion of past and future, all time.

What else does it mean that the Infinity of the Present (as this very Awareness) permits no time, no space, nothing measurable? As the Present does not permit any time or space within Itself, within All That Is Present, the Present also does not permit any thought or sensing—for these, too, would take time.

In this present Infinite Being, there isn’t even any “mental space.” There cannot be any mental forms. Even the super-fast forming or arising of a thought, which may seem to take less than a nanosecond, still would be time–of which there is none. There is only the unspeakable Immediacy of this Present Being–as all that exists–eternally, changelessly.

From CIA p. 162: “There simply is no physical distance extending in any direction from Your Present Conscious Being! Right this instant, as Consciousness, there is nothing separating You from All That Is! There is nothing separating the One Self from all of Itself right here and now.

The whole of All is so present, so available as this very Being, It is indescribable! How much Presence and thus Power does that “put” here, now?

All of the Infinite, all Presence, all Intelligence, all of the Self’s Love, Peace and Harmony existent is right smack Here, as this very Conscious Being! If not, then where is It? There is nowhere else!

Stop frequently and “abide as” the Infinite Present Itself which is present “right here,” because IT definitely is clear as to what Itself is, as un-thinking Pure Awareness. There is only This One Present. There isn’t one here and another one “over there” somewhere else, because there is no distance, nor any time in which to approach the Present–only This Infinite Present Awareness.

This present Unlimited Infinity that truly is ALL, is not negating or doing away with a world of time and space. Rather, One who is consciously being The Unlimited One leaves only This. This One is not dreaming that there also could be a finite realm of limitations. As Your Unlimitedness is ALL, You preclude there being any limits that You could cling to–nor is there any limit that could cling to You.

  1. Enjoying starting the day with ‘Reality Check’. And as usual, find Being, beautifully Being Being. Such a wonderful gift, Self to Self, deep appreciation abound!

  2. There can “be” no questions. In reality there’s no one asking, no one to ask. Reality is ALL.

    Infinity knows nothing of alone because infinity knows nothing of what it means to not be alone.

    Awareness is not two yet the absence of two does not automatically mean awareness is one.

    There is no pointing and no one to do any pointing. There is not “one” indescribable stuff.

    There is no redefining, nothing is ever mis-read or mistaken.

    There is not The Unlimited One. Infinity is ALL and has no association with numbers or units of measure, whatever they are.

  3. To Anonymous:

    What is the point of your comment? It seems to be solely intent on correcting, because the comment is a series of would-be “corrections.” Yet all of the points you attempt to “clarify” already have been clearly, “correctly” stated in these posts.

    Did you bother to fully read the earlier posts, and/or the Reality Checks within those posts? There, it has been clearly stated—repeatedly—that there are no questions in Reality. (Your first would-be correction.)

    From the very first post on 9/25: “As Being, Reality Itself, is all that is being, It actually leaves no others to think about It or be in question about It! The fact that Being, the Present, is present never is in doubt or in question. It is unquestionable. Equally, the Present, pure Being, is unquestioning. Reality, then, is what unquestioning pure Being is to Its own silent Presence, to Its own unthinking Nowness.”

    It also says there is nothing and no one to mis-read or be mistaken. (Another correction of yours.) It has been said repeatedly that all words are inadequate, inaccurate. It would seem that the desire to correct is so strong that these points were completely overlooked.

    OF COURSE Awareness, Infinity, is not one in a numerical sense. It also says here repeatedly that Awareness, Infinity, is no-finity, or the absence of quantity and measurement—and therefore has “no association with numbers or units of measurement.” (Another wanna-be correction.) What post did you read?

    The comment is indicative of those who, as with armchair quarterbacking, like to sit back and indulge in armchair critiquing, taking semantic pot-shots at anything that is said. This still would be the pride of an intellect, personal ego—assuming that “it” is clear, and there are others who are not so clear. As long as any words are being used, such critics will attempt to find fault—yet they themselves are using the very same words.

    The term Unlimited One (another of your corrections) is not meant in a numerical sense. If it were, it would be a contradiction, for the number one is very much a limit. If we are going to be so petty, then even the term Unlimited is no good, because it implies being “un” that which is limited—and there is nothing limited.

    On this nit-picking basis, then your own statement, “Infinity is ALL” can be considered wrong because it would be wholly conceptual. There really is no such thing as a statement, “Infinity is ALL”–for such terms would be wholly a product of finite thinking. On the level of words, if one uses a term All, there also can be less than All. And as Infinity truly is ALL, then It is not saying even that much, for Infinity could not SAY anything.

    If Infinity is ALL, as you say, then where is there a finite body feeling a need to type a corrective comment on a computer keyboard?

    Far more importantly, to whom would Infinity, ALL, offer corrective “feedback”?

    It would seem the actions belie the words.

    This is not an attempt to defend a “Peter” because there is no such self to be either wrong, or right.

    The entirety of what this website and CIA are saying can be summed up perfectly: “ ”

    Or will you now try to find fault with the use of quote marks, too?

  4. Thank you, Peter for your ability to plainly state Absolute Truth so beautifully. This is the best blog (discussion) ever!!

  5. There is no point to my comments and there need be no point. There is no one attempting to “clarify” or “correct” anything. There can be no “other” challenging, correcting or clarifying, as by default this cannot be. If the poster of the material takes issue then it must be by default with the poster of the material. Who are you trying to reduce? Who could be reduced? Where? When? “those who, as with armchair quarterbacking, like to sit back and indulge in armchair critiquing, ….” – says who? Where? When? Where are these armchair quarterbacks? “On the level of words, if one uses a term ALL, there also can be less than ALL.” – says, who? Where? When? I feel free to use the word ALL with no consideration for “less than ALL”. Of course, I also feel I can go from point A to point B without immediately acknowledging that there is “time”. “If Infinity is ALL, as you say, then where is there a finite body feeling a need to type a corrective comment on a computer keyboard? The comments are “corrective”? Who says so? Where? When? On what authority? They are “would-be” corrections? Who says so? When? Where? Who is making this claim and against who is it made? Notice a few “similarities” between the Present and Infinity. (As will be shown, the Present …..) – shown by who? To who? Where? When? On what authority? In the various postings on this website you freely use words such as infinity, being, unlimited, etc, and often it is said they are used as pointers. Who’s pointing? To what? Who needs to use a pointer? If CIA is written from the viewpoint of what is utterly nameless then there would be no questions in the book, no pointing out things, no “showing” no speaking about the “seeming” or “appearances”. And if it not written from the viewpoint of that which is ineffable then what viewpoint is it written from? By who? Where? Start with what you are indeed as what you are or you don’t start at all. Isn’t that something you would say? All these words, interpretations, semantics, etc. In reality, and as you say, reality is all there is, none of this is ‘important” nor is it unimportant. The words are written from your perspective, they have a “personal” slant. “Who” says what infinity IS or ISN’T, what infinity can do and not do? Speaking of infinity as though it were a subject to study something apart from something else is silly. It simply cannot be the case. Infinity is not the word infinity. Surely infinity that infinity IS. Read your earlier postings. Often things are stated in the form of a question? Things will be “shown”, it “seems” to be this way or that way, it “appears” to be this way or that way, To who? When? Where? Just “who” are “you” speaking to? “It has been said, that all words are inadequate, inaccurate.” Who says so? When? Where? On what authority? Perhaps there’s the perfect word for the perfect moment that is now. As you say, “If Infinity is ALL, as you say, then where is there a finite body feeling a need to type a corrective comment on a computer keyboard?” Infinity is ALL is something you repeat often. Who then is feeling they’ve been corrected? Who seems to feel there is a “someone” making would-be corrections? If this material wasn’t written and posted by as you say, “a finite body” then it is rooted in fiction. Thus this material was posted by a “you” that “believes” this to be true regarding truth or that which is ALL. In that case, everything is what “you” believe it is and if you don’t believe that then …… “This is not an attempt to defend a “Peter” because there is no such self to be either wrong, or right.” Now who’s “clarifying” and “qualifying”? To who? Where? When? “Or will you now try to find fault with the use of quote marks, too?” That sounds a bit defensive and a bit sarcastic.

  6. PFD -You asked what is the point of my comments. I could say the same thing. What is the point of your book? This site? Your interviews? What are you attempting to do? Who are you attempting to help? Really, what is the point? It’s funny that which you accuse this poster of doing is the fundamental basis of your material. In CIA you are attempting clarify, qualify and correct all over the place. And what’s funny you are attempting to clarify, qualify and correct what does not exist by your very own definition. If this is not the case then are you saying it is infinity clarifying for infinity? Infinity needs to qualify for infinity’s sake? Now that’s plain silly! It’s not about being “petty” as you say. There’s no such thing as almost truth and surely you would agree with that!

  7. To Anonymous,

    The point of my earlier reply was that you had taken issue with things that had already been clearly stated in these posts (even according to “your own” terms), but apparently you did not want to “see” that. There was no reason for correction.

    As has been said repeatedly, the inadequacy of all words is fully recognized here, and there is no point in continuing to argue such things.

    If what is said here (or the WAY it is said) is so disagreeable to you, then why are you here? Why continue to burden yourself? You certainly are free to go elsewhere, to write your own books and start your own website and blog.
