The way that consciousness works tells you that you can’t logically begin or end anything. You can only dream yourself into presence...
We dream the world into presence in the here and now and then lose ourselves to the yesterday and tomorrow.
We believe we're advancing forward towards the far-out then and there, when there are no directions to be found anywhere.
Beginnings and ends give identity and meaning to the time that lies in the middle, yet such middle has no presence in the boundless space of consciousness.
Consciousness intrinsically creates time-space (the dream-like realm known as reality) only to re-cognise itself; for in the infinite there can be no self re-cognition (no feedback loop).
Where are you now?
You can't logically be in the middle of space unless you're not that finite entity that you think you are; because The Finite cannot logically fall inside The Infinite.
That's just math, there is no 'life' in numbers.
What has to be seen here is that consciousness creates a pulse via math, where everything will continually explode towards infinity and implodes back upon itself due to the paradox of the mind striving to become the very whole it fears losing itself to.
You are everything and nothing, inside and out. Dream on but do not forget that you're dreaming.
