A Movement And a Rest

Some cosmologists theorize that the universe starts & stops, starts & stops, big-bangs, unwinds from there, then “rewinds” or ends. And starts over. An endless series of universes…Life arises biologically, then it dies; then more life arises. Day is followed by night; followed by day. When we sleep, there’s a period in which we are completely unconscious, without even dreaming, as if were non-existent; then we wake. Then later we sleep. This pattern seems to iterate the cycle of time and the cosmos. As above, so below. “If they ask you: What is the sign of your Father in you?, tell them: It is a movement and a rest.” – Gospel of Thomas …

Tao Te Ching: “Being and non-being create each other./Difficult and easy support each other./ Long and short define each other./High and low depend on each other./Before and after follow each other.”
