China Memoirs #9
Do you ever wake up from a dream and wonder if you are really a prophet sent from another place to fulfill a destiny unlike any other man, woman, or child that has walked the soil of this earth? I would say, that I often wake up feeling this way.
The dreams conjured from my own “mindscape” led me to believe that there is more than what we can see with our own physical eyes. Perception is really everything here. What we perceive is truly a matter of perspective. Each person is given a free will opportunity to perceive and receive as they so please. With this, many different relative realities are made manifest before the physical eyes of the masses.
My own reality is not different or the same as any other. It is just that, a part of the truth manifested as a relative piece of mind. And in this mind is a great landscape… one of raw beauty and power that emanates from unseen depths of a darkless dark. One not filled of shadows, but of light. For where light dwells, no darkness can prevail.
In my mindscape, I perceived an algebraic equation of everything that could not be solved. Although it was not a difficult equation. I could remember it with ease. It went something like this…
-2uo + 2ou + 2 = 0 –> This equals the Algebraic Theory of Everything!
This equation, not represented well by the font type, is 2 x “U” x “O” + the additional variables and numbers to equal zero. It isn’t unsolvable by any stretch of anyone’s imagination. In the dream however, it seemed very much impossible. As I rifled through the pages and indices of many math books, I could not find any answer to suit my equational needs. However… this did not stop me. As I awoke from the dream, I had a fervent desire to solve this impossible equation and dominate this formidable foe… algebra!
This equation has some relevance to that of the actual “Theory of Everything,” which attempts to connect both gravitational and electronuclear forces, but alas it is not the same. Instead it is my own connection and thought patterning that leads an intuitive scientific mind like Einstein or many other greats to their profound levels of insight. Whether it causes my mindscape to space out more or gain terrific insight into the true “Theory of Everything” is really beyond me and this body I currently inhabit.
To give a little background, in middle and high school, my focus was not on the books, the ladies, or extracurriculars. It was frankly always in the clouds. I was a dreamer at best. Possibly a space cadet. Which ever you choose to think won’t offend me. I know that I did not decide to be an academic until my decision to attend university. Halfway through medical school, I realized that my fantastic grade point average need not be the focus of my attention, but rather the ESSENCE of what I was studying.
So why an Algebraic Theory of Everything? Probably because this mindscape made me believe after a close encounter to the mathematician within, that it was absolutely necessary to create a mathematical equation that could explain the existence of creation itself. I am in no way, a creationist or an evolutionary biologist, but more or less a person that loves and receives all perspectives open-heartedly while providing judgment silently to my own methods of reasoning.
Will this mathematician within really continue to provoke the mindfield with theories that are seemingly unsolvable, so that this body may one day break through the silence with oppositional defiant words of EUREKA?!?
Too soon to tell I suppose.
Be well to all my peeps in the far East,
