Awareness Vs Robot

Absolutely there is no difference between the robot and a human being. Robot can be compared to the electrical train in which the energy is directly supplied as electricity. The human being can be supplied as steam engine train in which the coal burns and generates steam from the boiler. In this steam engine the generation of energy is an extra item.

In robot the current is supplied directly as energy. In human being the digestive system and respiratory system (Anna and Prana) are the two extra parts to generate the inert energy. The human being was differentiated from the computer in the past, because the computer worked with a single micro-processor whereas the brain worked with several micro processors working at a time.

A computer concludes the cow after some gradual steps and the brain concludes the cow spontaneously since these gradual steps are simultaneously built up. Due to the invention of this clue the difference between a computer and a human being disappeared. The generation of various thoughts in a human being is from the information chip (brain) which stores various thoughts received from outside. Creativity is also nothing but a new combination of the existing thoughts as parts.

If you have created an animal with eight legs and two tails by creativity, the leg and tail are already existing parts of the information chip. Today the computer composes poetry! Like a human being. Since the information chip is controlling the imagination or mental behavior completely, the freedom of thought in the case of the human being becomes absolutely meaningless on analysis. In the absence of this analysis the freedom of thought, creativity etc. is only misunderstood concepts.

This spark

This analysis is true but not complete. In its current state, it is not spiritual but nihilistic, philosophical and secular behavioral psychology, the same erroneous state that sometimes amateur Advaitans and Buddhists tend to delay in, sometimes for years.

This analogy is one of the main themes of Gurdjief, yet with one giant difference: there is a spark "in the robot" that is beyond his condition-based algorithms.

awareness is only a work form of energy only

When the energy, which is another form of matter, only does a special function, that special function or special mechanism or special technology is called as life. Thus, life is the special work of energy. The scientist is unable to make the energy to do this special work. The scientist is unable to know this special mechanism. Thus life is a special know-how or the knowedge of special technology. Since knowledge is power, the life can be called as special power.

Let me give you an example. A cook prepared a curry. With the same materials another cook prepared the same curry but with additional taste. This special taste is the life. The taste is not the extra material, which is hidden in the hand of second cook. The taste is only a special knowledge or talent of the second cook. The first cook is scientist and the second cook is God. God does not reveal this one special technology to human beings because the human being always wants to become God due to his inherent egoism and jealousy. Thus God saved the human being from its fall. One should constantly remember this point and constantly surrender to God.

The soul in the physical body is only a bundle of qualities and is just a computer chip. This chip is leaving the body in death. Even if you prepare that chip and introduce into the dead body with association of the required energy, the dead body can become only Robot. The difference between the human being and the Robot is this life only. The body of human being is made of living cells. Any cell can be used for cloaning. But any part of Robot is non-living and cannot be used for cloaning. The dead cells of dead body cannot be transformed into living cells, which can alone make the dead person, a living person. The reason is that the mechanism of a living cell cannot be introduced into the dead cell since the scientist is ignorant of it. Therefore, life is a special work of the ordinary inert electro magnetic energy. The energy is inert and since work is also a form of energy, the work is also inert. Special work is also a work. Therefore, life is also inert.

The word inert means that it is not independent and is under the control of a controller. When the controller is completely independent, you can call that controller only as life. That independent controller is God. The life is inert with reference to God. Before the life other items of creation are inert since life controls them. The life is called as ‘Para Prakriti’ in Gita, which means that the life is supreme item of the creation. But the creator is more supreme than life and thus most supreme controller. This special working substance is only the inert energy, which is in the hand of the scientist also. This energy is also a form of the matter. When the food is taken, it is converted into this energy. Thus it is not a special energy.

Life is only a special work of the same inert energy, which is produced by the conversion of matter or food. Veda also says the same (Annaat Purushah). This special mechanism cannot be known by searching the matter and energy present in a living cell. The taste cannot be found out by searching the materials used for cooking that curry. It is only in the form of knowledge, which should be revealed by the talented cook. When God came in human body as human incarnation, He demonstrated His special knowledge of life by raising a dead body.

That which thinks, feels, creates, imagines, loves, kills and even surrenders, is not a human at all; it is divine intelligence spontaneously expressing, artificially bounded by the self delusion it encounters within it's own dream.

Within this dream, it is heard that there is just Oneness, and the separate individual thinks this sounds good and hopes he will experience it one day. Hehe. Within the dream it is heard that there are no indivuals, and so the individual declares to every individual he meets "There is no me!"

What we have here is a failure to communicate. It's nice to think there is a spark of the divine in the human, and even nicer to imagine that the person is really God. What really hits us between the I's is what I call the 'third option'; the one nobody want's to really look into. You're not a person, you were never born, you never had a thought or a feeling, never performed an action, you are powerless to live your own life.

4 great sentences about Human Incarnation

The Veda has four great sentences (four dicta) called as the Maha Vakyas about the human incarnation:

1) Aham Brahmaasmi

2) Tatvamasi

3) Ayam Atmaa and

4) Prajnanam Brahma.

The first three sentences say that externally, He is like me, you, and him respectively. The fourth great sentence says that He preaches a special divine knowledge, which is not possible for anyone else, and this knowledge is His internal form by which He is differentiated from others.
Many electrons are flowing in the atmosphere. Flow of electrons is called as electricity. But you cannot experience electricity in the atmosphere.

By this electricity in the atmosphere you cannot move the fan or the lamp. This electricity cannot be experienced and you cannot get any benefit from it. But the same electrons, when made to flow in a metallic wire, you are able to get the experience of the electricity by touching the wire. By this electricity you can move the fan and light the lamp. Similarly you cannot directly experience God who is pervading all over the world and you cannot get any fruit from Him. But when the same God enters the human body, you can experience Him through vision, touch, conversation and live in His association. But even by this experience you cannot get any fruit. When you meet somebody, touch him, talk with him and even live with him, you can experience him, but you cannot necessarily get any help from him.

Even if you serve God in His human form personally, He may preach to you several times but only when you participate in His mission as a servant, will He be completely pleased and give you the fruit. Therefore you can experience and please God, only through the human form. God creates this method of approaching Him, for the sake of human beings. This method is called the human incarnation. If you try to reach the Absolute God directly, He is like a roaring mighty ocean. You are just a water drop. Your prayer is an iota in that ocean of sound. You may even merge in the sea and disappear completely loosing your name and form.
