Hi The Belief Doctor,
Is it possible that the "deeper nature of reality" is some objective universe of particles which we are only capable of detecting, ultimately, as "possibility-fields"?
Simple reason: anything that is objective in any form is not that which is whole, interconnecting all.
Furthermore, whatever is "thought" is not that which is whole, interconnecting all, since 'thinking of all' requires one to think again and again ... ad infinitum (such is the nature of the infinite).
Where these sorts of discussions go wrong is to believe that one's thinking can in any way make sense of that which remains beyond reasoning: reason and rational thought both have the Latin root, ratio - thus to be reasonable requires one to separate oneself from (i.e. be in ratio to) that which is interconnecting, whole. Ipso facto, reason will not ever get you 'there'.
Instead, if you wish to make any sense of that which is beyond thought, you'll need to make like any sage, artist or spiritual guru and feel into 'it' since feeling is the only connective ability we have with that which remains beyond what goes on in our heads.
Finally, feeling enables us to nonlocally feel 'at-one' and at-once (i.e 'parallel process' sideways, forwards and backwards in time), thus enabling some sense of 'wholeness' that defies easy rational description. The key here is to recognise that we are 'immersed' in that which is whole, so we cannot remain entirely unaware of 'it' even though it remains beyond our reasoning minds.
I suppose another way of saying this is that the frequent reports of euphoric states of bliss, or sense of 'God' by various spiritual sects is a feeling that cannot be entirely reduced to descriptions, words, equations or conceptualisations - as is common of such reports it is an expansive feeling of wholeness and connection beyond one's usual sense of self.
Unfortunately, what gets assigned to those feelings are invariably limited conceptualisations -- since to put into words any subjective experience requires thought, hence we're back into old territory.
