So the Universe is a sort of a wheels-within-wheels. What you see at the high level would be sort of duplicated at the lower level. The Powers of 10 is a good example of this sort of behavior while Sitting Bull in the Grand Canyon is a funny version of the same.The recent total solar eclipse triggered off some more thoughts on that. Detailed report from the ToI/BLR/23.JUL.2009 edition here.
For me, the Mind-Body-Atma [a different type of MBA, according to Swami :-)] is a fascinating example of this holographic behavior. At the higher level, the MBA map on to the Moon, Earth, and the Sun. Like so:
Mind : Body : Atma = Moon : Earth : Sun.As an aside, it's interesting how the theories of the formation of the Moon can be applied to those of the Mind as well.
What happens when the wandering Moon mind aligns itself with the Sun atma (the Over-soul), which is responsible for its shining. The Earth body sees the effulgence of the Sun that isn't visible before.
But it can't be seen with the naked eye!
In the Bhagavad Gita, we read: (Chapter 11, Verse 8, from the translation by Barbara Stoler Miller)
But you cannot see meSri Ramakrishna says much the same thing: (from Love Gurus)
with your own eye;
I will give you a divine eye to see
the majesty of my discipline.
MASTER: "God cannot be seen with these physical eyes. In the course of spiritual discipline one gets a 'love body', endowed with 'love eyes', 'love ears', and so on. One sees God with those 'love eyes'. One hears the voice of God with those 'love ears'. One even gets a sexual organ made of love."
