Space and time

With The Theory of relativity, Einstein seriously undermined the fundamental concepts of modern physics. Incredibly, the importance of the fourth dimension-time-has failed. It becomes a gradient, to use a term of Rovelli, which emerges from our inability to perceive the reality for what it is. Time seems to be just a perception belonging to man, who needs it to order events. We were able to build atomic clocks even very precise to measure it. However, it has now been shown that even at different altitudes, measured time runs differently. Time moves slower at zero altitude and faster as you move away from zero. Also measured time on Earth has nothing to do with time on Andromeda. Greene claims that space-time is a unique block. It coincides with the birth of our universe and proceeds towards the infinite. In observing it we slice it creating moments that are already present in the total form.

The nostalgic Universe

Everything starts with a two-way theoretician. An "apparent" division of an architecture that actually remains solid (the unique block of Greene's space-time). One part (the conscious mind) inscribed in a four-dimensions (length, height, depth, and time) immersed in a representation, that the second part creates constantly. It is (the unconscious): incalculable, not structured, it represents and observes from outside of every dimension. This process begins with the beginning of the universe or universes and always ends in that beginning. The time that seems to be running to us has never actually begun to beat his hands. It is still in that point where everything began and where it will continue to exist forever, but always the same, unchanged.
The organism-mind, is not circostritto the body of a single individual. It doesn't match the self. It is part of the persistent representation of the unconscious. This means that it is also a projection.
Let's imagine writing on the keyboard. The creative part of the mind (the Unconscious), opens a scenario in which the body-mind performs the action of typing on the keyboard, in a present virtual. Any action of the organism-mind is as Dreamed with abundance of details from the unconscious. Also the scenes where the organism has to leave the keyboard to answer the phone. And the resulting scene where it closes the phone, after the conversation and starts writing again. 
Suppose we own a diary where we write daily notes about our lives. We open the pages and find that everything is already written. It is also written that at that moment we are opening the page that we are looking at. We can browse all the pages in any order.
That's what the unconscious does. He opens the pages of a diary. The object of the unconscious, our organism-mind, will be faced with several new scenarios that have a continuation as consistent as possible with each other. While we are driving in a frame of the scenario "to guide", we may find ourselves catapulted into our office without first park and do all the procedures to get to the office. The unconscious "packs" the scenes and makes them coherent by covering every breach. When we see a film, the frames of a scene are a synthesis of what we perceive in the relatà. It is the unconscious that places the intermediate frames that make the whole vision of the film more fluid. All these scenes are as already represented in an infinite book written with a language formed by archetypes (the study on the symbolism of the collective unconscious was made by C. G. Jung).
This process is in itself quite similar to that of the dream. In that case the living organism is a further projection emanating from scenarios set up by our unconscious.
So the unconscious sends into a space-time bubble very similar to a dream, its conscious mind (the organism-mind) to read this infinite book of his.
More easily said: the unconscious sends into his" dream", a living being (which is then his conscious mind) to read this infinite book of his.
The question that will arise to all is: but what is the usefulness of a sophisticated mechanism (the unconscious) that transmits to another (the organism-mind) to live actions already imprinted in its own gigantic memory?
If we look around us we are full of organizations ordered data that are very similar to each other: a library can be a very simple example. Or even better: on Youtube we can review various videos from all over the world at any time. So we have to ask ourselves, why do we use it? Why do we review certain things? Our answers are many:  
to spend time, to laugh, to listen to music, to review pieces of film, to be passionate about scientific subjects, to learn, simply to remember. Such a complex architecture has as its fundamental purpose this: to remember who it is, to recognize oneself, to reunite the two split poles at the beginning. This knowledge is already existing exactly as there is already a library.
No book or video can be self-observed with awareness.

What Remains of Free Will

If everything that is to be done has already been done and is fixed in a place without space and no time, talking about free will becomes childish. 
Einstein had sensed, supported by his scientific discoveries, the non-existence of free will. 
Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi says that as a puppet controlled by a puppeteer, our mind, speech and body will be made to act in accordance to our destiny (prārabdha), and that whatever is destined to happen will not happen, and whatever is destined to happen will happen for sure. Our Free Will is reduced to the following.
Although we cannot make something happen that is not destined to happen, and although we can't prevent that from happening what is destined to happen, we are free to want and try to make things happen that are not meant to happen, and to want and to try to prevent what is destined to happen. 
Of course, all these attempts, according to Bhagavan, will fail miserably. And then he adds: 
Since we cannot prevent or alter, even minimally, what is meant to happen, and since we can't make something happen that is not destined to happen, the best direction is not wanting or trying to do so. 
But the point is another: how can we from simple organisms, to change something that is unchangeable and timeless, trying to lay down the law to an Unconscious that creates the reality in which we are immersed?

Eastern aphorisms

When we separated from the "source", imagining that our consciousness is independent and absolute, we lost, and we don't know neither where to go nor where to stop: the result is a state of spiccatissima spiritual restlessness.
From the moment there is an ego, then everything exists separately. After ego extinction, nothing exists separately.
From the moment when there is ignorance, then everything exists separately. After the extinction of ignorance, nothing exists separately.
It means that from the moment we stop thinking of our self as a distinct and separate entity, we bring down all forms of ignorance and all illusions in the world.
