In this lecture, the instructor delves into unconventional concepts that challenge the typical framework of human thinking. To understand the world perceived through our five senses, processed by our minds, and colored by our emotions, we need certain fundamental concepts.

Two such concepts, time and space, are the focus of tonight's discussion.

To grasp these ideas better, let's use an imperfect analogy: think of time and space as the frame and glass through which you view the universe. These are constructs created by the human mind as tools and methods for understanding our experiences.

Tonight, we'll explore the concepts of sound and sequence, which we can roughly equate with time. Sequence and sound serve as our vehicles to move beyond conventional ideas about time and space and into more expansive notions.

The visible universe, comprised of material matter, is structured by sound in an orderly sequence. This orderly sequence forms the foundation of mathematics, which can be considered the science of time. However, it's essential to recognize that our everyday understanding of time falls short.

Now, let's introduce the concept of sequence, which we define as instantaneous or timeless, encompassing many stages in between. It's crucial to understand that the universe is a result of sound arranged in an orderly sequence, akin to the principles of mathematics. Substance, which we distinguish from matter, is a state in the universe similar to a solution just before precipitation occurs. Matter, on the other hand, is the precipitate.

Imagine a chemistry experiment where a saturated solution teeters on the brink of precipitation. A slight change triggers the formation of solid particles. Until that point, these particles remain in an invisible state.

Now, substance, in the grander scope of the universe, is created by sound moving in an orderly sequence, causing it to precipitate into matter, each element bearing the stamp of this sequence. This orderly sequence can be thought of as the Time Binder of the universe.

For the sake of our discussion, let's define mathematics as the science of the universe's Time Binder and physics as the science of the universe's Sound Binder. These two sciences are inseparable and mutually dependent.

Consider orderly sequence as something more profound than our typical concept of time. It determines the wavelength, which, in the broader universe, determines the type of element. A specific combination of sound sequences generates particular elements of material matter. When sound follows specific orderly sequences to a point of convergence, it precipitates orderly arrangements of electrons, protons, and neutrons, which we call matter. In this context, sequence becomes the time binder of the atom.

This time binder not only accounts for the mathematical and structured arrangement of matter within an atom but also determines its lifespan. While you can comprehend the atom's organized structure, except for radioactive substances, uncovering the atom's duration remains a challenge.

At this juncture, let's delve into a fresh perspective on space. Admitting that our definitions are inadequate, we employ them to expand our understanding. Space is an infinite web of sound moving in an orderly sequence. What we commonly refer to as space is the vast expanse where substance has not yet transitioned into matter. Atoms, solar systems, and galaxies exist within this orderly sequence of sound.

These concepts present new horizons for science. Those who perceive this orderly sequence of sound and the material universe occupy a strategic vantage point. To some extent, they become modifiers of this pattern. Humanity has the capacity to modify this pattern to its own detriment or enhance it to become masters of their material environment, expanding their comprehension and embracing higher levels of moral responsibility in an orderly universe.

The development of moral responsibility in an orderly universe necessitates a profound knowledge of science and an understanding of the profound meaning you are gaining in your studies in another department of this college.

In attendance, there were seventeen individuals, four of whom were women. One individual, seated on the right of this student, should have attended the preceding lecture on the Sound Binder. It's important to note that this entire college represents the First Ray Ashram, while the lecture on the Sound Binder comes from the Seventh Ray Ashram.


Questions to ask Yourself:

What are the fundamental concepts discussed in the lecture that challenge the typical framework of human thinking?

  1. How does the instructor explain the relationship between time, space, and our perception of the universe?

  2. What role does sound play in shaping the material universe, according to the lecture?

  3. How does the concept of sequence differ from our conventional understanding of time?

  4. What is meant by the "Time Binder of the universe," and how does it relate to the arrangement and lifespan of atoms?
