I often ideate on the Absolute Being (Godhead, Nirguna Brahma) as the “infinite ocean of love and bliss.” I came across a page titled “On the Shore of the Boundless Ocean” on Frank van den Bovenkamp’s website. On that page a disciple of Baba (Shrii Shrii Anandamurti) describes his vision in which Baba talks about the “subspace.” I was very intrigued by this.
The first thing that came to mind was the controversial subject of non-locality in quantum physics. The term “non-local” refers to certain measurements where distance becomes irrelevant. This happens under special circumstances in quantum physics experiments.
The second thing that came to mind was, of course, the “subspace” of science-fiction, especially in “Star Trek” movies.
I think the intention of Frank van den Bovenkamp is to bring our attention to the possibility that microvita move and act in a non-local way. A “subspace” of some kind could be relevant in this context.
I have asked Frank van der Bovenkamp for a comment on subspace. He mentioned that “a philosophical term closely related to the ‘subspace’ mentioned in the disciple’s vision could be Svabhava which is mentioned in Baba’s earlier teachings. Svabhava means the ‘characteristic bearing of Consciousness.’ Svabhava (‘self-flow’) is the stage complementary to, and underlying space-time-matter.”
The English term for such a stage could be “primordial fabric” but I like “subspace” or “substratum” too.
