It is in nothingness, that everything resides. In this article, I will attempt to convey through words, my impression of The Zero-Point Field.
There is a great sense of irony giving structure to something formless and all-pervasive. To speak through words, something beyond words. To materialize something that is in a constant interminable process. However, words can also function as a bridge whereby the intangible can be made somewhat tangible.
Through the instrument of pure awareness, the composition can be given to an incorporeal experience via an equally abstract means of communication. The process of traversing the inner to the outer, where the impossible unknown can possibly be known.
In this context, words function as an energetic signal from one soul to another. A point where two can recognize, on multiple levels of consciousness, that their anomalous spiritual experience is one that is shared.
Locating the zero-point
Perhaps the only way to begin reflecting on the zero-point field is by embracing the concept of incongruity. The zero can be viewed as a point at which juxtaposing forces harmonize to meet. Yet this ‘point’ is not somewhere out there – it has no bearing, thus there is no map to get there. The zero-point has no point, while also being the point of all points.
To return to the zero is to surrender the narratives of the mind which have deeply identified with the realm of duality, to the point of believing the zero-point as separate, to begin with: a state to reach rather than a state you already are. The zero-point is the most simple state to consciously access, considering it does not take effort to get to because it is everywhere. Yet simultaneously, because the zero-point transcends the domains of space and time, it is the most complex state to consciously access, considering it is nowhere, in particular, to be found.
Phenomena as the only true constant
The zero-point can be considered the ultimate truth. It is the only point of existence that cannot be tainted, drained, or counterfeited. Much like a threshold, the zero actively rests in the liminal spaces of here, there, and nowhere. At this point, existence is not limited to being black or white, feminine or masculine, wrong or right, but rather provides boundless space for existence to be all that it is and can be.
A simple analogy of this can be seen through the architecture of a coin and its curved surface which holds both heads and tails within itself, without necessarily being either. A framework that does not negate duality, but forms part of it – while also having its entirely own plane. The zero-point has the power to hold together, as well as dismantle, the very fabrication of reality. Thus, It is a space in which all return to the one and none.
There is the interpretation of life, and then there is life itself. The latter is purely a phenomenon; it cannot be pinpointed or subjectified as it is a consistent happening. It exists whether the interpretation is given to it or not. The infinite realm defies rationality and its processes of making meaning. It is difficult to grasp infinity when it transcends the very paradigm of that which is defining. However, words can equally function as a gateway to remembering this primordial energy. Here exists the paradox of a dialogue on infinity.
Conceiving the true potential of the Zero-point
From an ‘outside’ perspective, the zero can be viewed as a passive or neutral state. This view suggests that if someone transcends their personal opinions, returning to one’s center would be the equivalent of pure stillness or emptiness. While this is true, it also depends on how the rational mind conceives emptiness itself. For perhaps it is in nothing, that everything resides.
In Quantum Physics the zero-point field theory illustrates that even at an absolute zero-point, atoms and molecules still maintain some vibrational motion. In other words, this ‘empty’ space is actually an effervescent cache of energy. The oscillating energy that exists within this seemingly vacant space may have effects, both subtle and transparent. Both on the behavior of microscopic particles and the world at large.
Accessing the zero-point field within us can function as an effective force in glitching our own inner and outer matrices. Which helps us return to the realm of infinite potential, beyond the vortices of duality. Without personal control limiting the extent to which we feel, our senses are reawakened to experience everything wholly; full phenomenon, void of ascriptions.
In light of pure life being void of ascriptions, the zero can be ascribed to the re-set, the regeneration. To the return and remembrance. It holds the potential to re-configure the cause and effect. By surrendering the filters within our minds, we give ourselves the chance to re-open the doors to our multi-dimensionality. Deepening the layers within reality and widening our lens of view to an unfathomable point.
Here we are at peace with the understanding that this neverending enigma co-exists with what is knowable and already known. Accessing the zero-point is the process of taking ourselves outside of ourselves in order to go further into our true selves.
How do you return to that which already is?
The zero is not an experience that can be obtained via a step-by-step guide, it challenges mental effort and is rather a natural process of realization; honing into the spaces in between and surrendering all that one thought one knew in order to make room for this expansive nothingness.
The beauty of the mysteries of the zero is that only when one truly let go, are they able to fully let in.
