The Reality of Karma

The Force of Equilibrium:

The karmic equation is an abstract representation of the karma (causes and consequences) of an individual or group . . . since karma is an exceedingly complex energy (even for the evolved individual), the equation must necessarily be symbolic and abstract with an indeterminate series of many-dimensional terms.  The reason for this is quite simple; karma is a superposition of inputs (causes) and outputs (effects or consequences) and their interactions, over a diverse continuity and fabric of time, space and consciousness.  

The inputs to the karmic equation are the vast sea of causes (physical, emotional, and mental behaviors and motives) which spans past moments . . . All of the past actions have been entered as causes, and new causes are added continuously as the individual lives, thinks, feels, and otherwise experiences.  The relationships of an individual to other persons are often major (potent) inputs.  The output of the equation is the continuous (weighted) sum of total external forces and influences on the individual or the group . . . Since the effects are continuously responsive to the causes and relationships, the effects constitute a feedback mechanism (the response of the individual creates new causes which in turn modify somewhat the new effects).  Each equation is continuously changing, though the changes may be quite small compared to the output or yield.  In general, a large number of causes are superimposed (and distributed in time) and transformed to produce timely and appropriate effects.

In Quantum Mechanics:

There are two equations of karma — the direct and the complex conjugated:

AY=0; A’Y’=0;

where the operators have the form

A=2h^2V + i2h o/o t-9;

A’=2h^2V – i2h  o/o t-9.

Here, Y denotes the probability density wave (the wave function); V, the Laplace operator; 9, the potential energy density; and h, Planck’s constant.

These equations may be solved in the form of karma waves and anti-waves with quantization of probability waves.  Connected with them are perturbations of the information-energy field, i.e., wave signals.  In principle, such signals may propagate faster than the speed of light.

Expanding on the application of Newton’s Third Law of Motion to karma, in
The Mechanics of Karma:

Fundamentally, however, and from a higher viewpoint, in which space and time are spanned, cause and effect is simultaneous.  For example, the perpetrator harms the victim.  Did the perpetrator cause this harm?  From the third-dimensional viewpoint, they apparently did, but taking into account more data we know that the victim also attracted the perpetrator.  That is, each sought out the other — it is a simultaneous phenomenon.

This is an example of duality — a two-polarity system.  The perpetrator pole and the victim pole are interdependent.  You can’t have one without the other . . . Now this duality gives us a mechanism for the return of energy in order to learn lessons.  A whole energy (quantum state) divides into two poles.  One pole acts as a debt to pay back the energy.  The process of paying back the energy is the same as the process of one pole or energy seeking wholeness by returning to the other to cancel it, leaving a condition of unity (higher dimensionally).  That is, the energy seeks wholeness and the poles come together causing a return to self of what was inflicted on another . . .

This principle of cancellation given here has general physics applications.  When we say bringing together the two poles (to cancel the debt/karma), this is the same as phase conjugation, in which two wave patterns, one reversed relative to the other (which simply means 180 degrees out of phase), come together and cancel one another.

Metaphysics, the Conservation of Energy:

Energy conservation is more than just saving fuel.  It says, in effect, that in any physical process the total energy before must equal the total energy after the process is concluded.  It seems to me that karma is one of these “conservation laws” . . .

In the words of H.P. Blavatsky, “Karma creates nothing, nor does it design.  It is a man who plans and creates causes, and Karmic law adjusts the effects; which adjustment is not an act, but universal harmony, tending ever to resume its original position, like a bough, which, bent down too forcibly, rebounds with corresponding vigor” . . .

Wilbur is correct in his point that the mystical truths do not need the “proofs” of science.  But the illumination from below oftentimes makes these truths sparkle with new brilliance.
