Understanding Dogen’s ‘Existential-Moment’ ‘UJI’-Living ‘Here and Now’

Hoogly Latitude Sundial

“Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain.
You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today.
And then one day you find ten years have got behind you.
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun…- Time, The Dark Side of the Moon, Pink Floyd

The duality with regard to Time arises when we perceive it as ‘Durational’ associated with numerical expression of a ‘before’ and ‘after’ which is measurable. This is old Aristotelian concept of time measured linearly.

The final realization of ‘Time’ takes place when we understand Dogen’s ‘UJI’ or ‘Being-Time’ as a fleeting ‘Moment’ of existence. That is Samadhi experience of the timeless leaking through the quantized time of existential moments. Then TIME IS ON YOUR SIDE AND NOT FLYING AWAY…THIS IS THE TRUE MEANING OF THIS SONG. ‘Here and Now’ the past and future are gathered and not separate – this is APPERCEIVING -SEEING BEYOND THE SUBJECT-OBJECT SPLIT.

*”Through the mind alone (purified by knowledge) is IT to be realized. There is no differentiation whatsoever in the Brahman. He goes from death to death who sees in IT, as it were, differentiation”. – Brihadaranyaka Upanishad

To see beyond differences is to be realised in the Noumenal

The ‘Duality’ is the manifested phenomenal aspect of our extension in 3Dspace-time

Not a single particle exists separately

It is actually a temporary localised pulse emerging from a larger field

The phrase ‘as it were’ (iva) is the crux of the Upanishadic instruction regarding the universe and our daily life in it. Whenever the Upanishads seem to concede the reality of the world, even in the slightest degree, the phrase ‘as it were’ is to be added; for anything ‘other’ than Brahman is an appearance.

£8 million monsoon project launches in India

A project involving scientists from the UK and India to predict monsoon rainfall by studying ocean processes in the Bay of Bengal launches today.

Scientists from the University of East Anglia (UEA) will release underwater robots to monitor how ocean conditions influence monsoon rainfall.  Meanwhile collaborators from a partner project led by the University of Reading with collaborators across the UK and India will use a state-of-the-art aircraft to take atmospheric measurements at the same time.

It is hoped that the combined results of this large-scale scientific campaign will help forecast the arrival of the Indian monsoon more accurately than ever before.

As well as improving rainfall prediction, the research could revolutionise subsistence farming, improve the livelihoods of millions of people, and help mitigate the damage caused by monsoons when they hit land.

Summer monsoons provide 80 per cent of annual rainfall to around a billion people in India.

Forecasting the precise timing and location of the rains is vital to the region’s economy, which is dominated by farming, and for managing its increasingly pressured water resources.

Accurate predictions of intense downpours and breaks in the monsoon are essential to help farmers plan their crop planting and communities prepare for floods and droughts.

Last year, the monsoon spread rapidly over northern India, causing devastating damage, whereas prolonged breaks in 2009 led to a severe shortage of rainfall and poor harvests.

Lead researcher Prof Adrian Matthews, from UEA’s School of Environmental Sciences, said: “The Indian monsoon is notoriously hard to predict. It is a very complicated weather system and the processes are not understood or recorded in science.

“We will be combining oceanic and atmospheric measurements to monitor weather systems as they are generated. Nobody has ever made observations on this scale during the monsoon season itself so this is a truly ground-breaking project.

“We are aiming for a better understanding of the actual physical processes. What we have now are imperfect models for predicting monsoon rainfall when it hits land, so this will create better forecasts.

“Ultimately, the goal is to improve the prediction of monsoon rainfall over India. This will be enormously beneficial for India’s subsistence farmers, who need to know when and how much rain will fall. This would then enable them to change the timing of how they plant their crops.

“We hope that it will also help to mitigate international disasters caused by extreme rainfall and flooding.

“We also hope to better understand how the southern Asian monsoon affects the whole world’s climate,” he added.

The Bay of Bengal Boundary Layer Experiment (BoBBLE) is led by UEA scientists in collaboration with the University of Reading and the National Oceanography Centre (NOC) in Southampton.

Collaborators in India include the Centre for Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences (CAOS), the Indian National Centre for Climate Information Services (INCOIS), the National Centre for Medium Range Weather Forecasting (NCMRWF) and the National Institute of Ocean Technology (NIOT).

The UEA team will arrive in India today and are due to set sail on June 24 from Chennai into the Bay of Bengal on the Indian research ship the Sindhu Sadhana.

Dr M Rajeevan, secretary for the Indian Ministry of Earth Sciences, will visit the ship and meet the research team on the afternoon of its departure.

Once out in the ocean, they will then release seven underwater gliders to measure ocean properties such as temperature, salinity and current.

The team will spend a month at sea – with data from the 250-mile stretch of international water beamed back to the UK using mobile phone signals daily.

Back in the UK, researchers at UEA, the University of Reading and NOC, will use this data to create computer models of the ocean to determine how it affects weather systems and rainfall over India.

“Our collaborators will be flying out from Bangalore to make simultaneous observations in the atmosphere above us. It will be really rather spectacular,” added Prof Matthews.

Previous missions undertaken by UEA’s fleet of gliders have helped researchers make a variety of discoveries including why the Antarctic ice caps are melting.

The project is funded by the Natural Environment Research Council, the Newton Fund, the Indian Ministry of Earth Sciences (MoES) and the UK’s Met Office.

HIGGS FIELD: SPEAK TO ME, Samij Datta, 2012



Field arbitration yume-cast fat light-eternal

Time-matter-link void

The bees are gathering honey for the spring in Easter spiral-lobes

Waziz-Ezra-time xollar

Ben-Okri time ‘Our Future is Greater than our Past’

To me you are not an idiot but the past in past formations of black-hole energy

Consciousness is the future matter of justice in Ekaxoniz particle

The falcon in the hollow of the sky saw the sun in the crater of the Avahomin

The stars are not falling, forklift the mind to connect to its server

Connect to it and receive the signals

The gibbons let their tails hang like cable and wireless from the tree

Their instincts are sharpened by a conscious tapping of energy

Language is an evolving primate in the eye of the sound that came from silence

The fig tree is the golden diadem of the dianthus doxon

To be eka oki rayam yam ben ezra yong ti – be the sweet sounding melody in the tram of bees

Every part must evolve to develop the full organizational structure

Innovate and pre-design, intuition is a trade-flow of signals from outer space

Do you think before you do? Where are you going from here?

SPEAK TO ME: “I’ve always been mad, I know I’ve been mad, like the most of us are. It’s very hard to explain why you’re mad, even if you’re not mad.” (Speak to Me, The Dark Side of the Moon, 1973, Pink Floyd)

Mind Integration from Extrohan to Eragman to Locate the Mainframe of R-Mind-R Which is the Cultural Creative Force of the Being-Vigrahaman


The beauty is submerged in the synthesis of time with consciousness

Time Square is the α-vitruvian man

He is the source of the primal light

He is the chalice/cup of the matter in the sun of the ancient years

Transforming the directions in the inelastic dual spin in dark-energy condensates

Wavicle and in the praviculin wavicle, the sector of light atom density

Has remembered the sonic diagram of cardiovascular muscles in the golden ratio

His ship is an integer after normal diffraction; the cross is a super-involuted wind-truth

It makes the flower dance, the river sing and the thunder roar

3 actions in simultaneous equations are the poetry of the supermind


The lunar constellations are joyful in the varltumin camera of x-position y-excitations

Z is the zion of the Daneb in the heavy Altair of the Cygnus

Light is a candle in the sub-space of an alter

Time denominations are the super-fluid history in the sempiternal voyages in The Dark Side of the Moon

A spoonful of algebra Keep Talking like music

And the Sphinx is a rooster calling the stars by their nyaobhim-clock opera cylindrical arm.

Mind of Brahman {Meta-Limb-Mind} = {infinite-finite-infinite-finite} {active-part-internal-active-part-external}

Alblackica Clock Series II: The Relational Sequence of Time in the Quantum Matrix and the Non-Curvature of Hyper-Solids in Laser Helio-Madeb




The Relational Sequence of Time in the Quantum Matrix and the Non-Curvature of Hyper-Solids in Laser Helio-Madeb

The compass points of the indivisible vectors of the ultraviolet fragmentation are sine and cosine of the violet in the glass-tubular vessels of the black sun. its not a mystic recognition of the coplanar magnitudes of life and its relative multiverse but that of the eternal beyond the eternity of time’s unsound consonants. The goat is the sheep made to run in the tunnel where the wind is the fire of another river song…the civilization starts from there and progresses along the lines of the Nile or the Ganges, Mississippi or Volga. The cross-talk domain of the Terrasuxa Qataz is the zebra-prime vessel of the spring. Man or no-man can reach this point, that’s not within the other of the within shifting from the centre but it’s a joke of the idiot playing a match of football in an empty stadium that once rocked the audience with the grass-power vision of the Woodstock germ. There are no more the arms that can destroy the creation, One unfolds the One in perimeter of the circle and the zero is the alblackica of counter-faith that has seen streets made of gold turning into silver madness of the moon. That night is within the Michelangelo in the wime-goat plates that can make and unmake the reading of a film into the unified separation of the rise and fall in the madness of ether carrying birds in the footprints of the lion.

The ions of the ionized circle without the helium cannot manufacture anything but can subtly tell the story long unheard by the apes in their evolution into the man-of-nothing. Dust is dust to dust is pro-dast of every dust in the collar-zime-yime vision of the time. A flower is a flower when the withering stumps of the micro-seconds turn the colors into some macro poetry that talks about the anointment of the earth in the vision of the serpent. Sleep is the wakinghood of another reprise in the violent chaos that mothers the disciple of disciplines for some good work with a prayer that remains unaffected even after the transfiguration of coal into diamond lights. Serene is hopefully an adjective of another adverb that stands still looking ahead into the Alps of the romantics- that is the eponymous vision unaffected by means that come on the way with their divergent dreams to maim the word which is an empty set full of possibilities and change.

Retailing of the Creation in the Nevra Prime Matter of the Self: Monet’s Windows are the Clopen Pyramids of the Alblackica

Alblackica Plate II, Samij Datta, 2012

Retailing of the Creation in the Nevra Prime Matter of the Self: Monet’s Windows are the Clopen Pyramids of the Alblackica


Withdraw the outer being into the cantor cube

The half length is the zebra prime matter of the nexus

That binds creation to its origin of origins

The self is the red earth of the self the leaf’s swollen with the river song

It has in it the elements of akik- the power beyond everything that stands today

Don’t you see the eyes are the ears of the sky’s cross-legged bow?

The rainbow is the doctrine of the word’s alblackica

Alpha beta zeta are the tulips of the ancient Mercedes

They cover almost every distance like the starlight does

Flex of the sun’s inhabitants are razor sharp on the moon’s elbow

Every truth is a bit of falsehood and falsehood amalgamates the paradox

What do you owe to this ant race of the earth? What hands pick up the lightning rod?

Shivering in the snowy peaks the caves dug tunnels into the core

The fire is the spirit of the monolithic stone, water the empty vessel of the mirror

Moatat Straz Struhedh Yayastat, Moatat Straz Struhedh Yayastat

Heraclitus on a paper’s right sector north-east turning and turning the wheel

The sweet music of the Philomela is the left concord of the unravishing blindness

From which comes the lonely surrender of the non-Euclidean tool

Walking and walking and walking beyond the Supermind of all planes

Into the Razder, Ionicixa and Vaxuta plates – there is more freedom than explained by them

They taught the lips bound by the chains – the light almost fell into the black veil of the sun

What good is sorrow if you tear the lid with a broken arrow, hit the tower with the flood

Then the language will learn the lessons of its time the geodesy will change

Plato in the Habber-Brahman, the Zabber is the time that changes with itself

It calls out to the runic leptohan cause the Avra Moatat Straz Struhedh Yayastat.
