One puzzle for human perception of the Omega Point is the Event Horizon of the Singularity. It can be understood like a black hole, from which nothing can escape...
But this dark bubble of Uncertainty is not bad; it is just an egg for the Unknown waiting to be born. In his excellent book The Spectrum of Consciousness, Ken Wilbur clarifies this for us. All you need to do is insert the Singularity into Wilbur's "thing disk" and you're good to go for safe Omega viewing:
To begin with, imagine one "thing", a "disk", a black circle on a white page, marked off from the page itself by one distinction, namely, the disk's boundary.
Duality is "division into two", and that appears to be what our distinction or boundary has done- divide the paper into two parts: the figure of the disk vs the background of the page. Thus, I most probably imagine that I can see very clearly the "thing" which is called a "disk". This, however, is pure illusion, a mental sleight-of-hand, for never at any time am I actually aware of a seperate "disk-thing"- what I see in fact is the entire visual field or gestalt of figure-plus-background, disk-plus-page. My eye doesn't see a disk, it sees a disk-page!
In other words, the two "things", the disk and the page, are not so seperate after all. They are "different", but not seperate. They are, that is, mutually correlative and interdependent- they are not two, non-dual. The boundary of the disk is certainly there, but it does not actually divide the disk from the page. The two are really united by virtue of their common boundary. Inescapably, the perception of the "seperate disk" is not an act of discovery, but an act of creation. Out of what is in itself an indistinguishable, swarming continuum, devoid of distinction or emphasis, our senses make for us, by attending to this motion and ignoring that, a world full of contrasts, or sharp accents, of abrupt changes, of picturesque light and shade. Thus, through the power of narrowed and selective attention, which is nothing more than the thought process, we focus and seize upon the disk, mentally seperate it from its background, completely ignore the unity of the gestalt, and then imagine that this state of affairs existed all along!
In so doing, we have introduced a dualism which represses the non-duality of the field or gestalt and projects it as the disk vs the page. Yet this vision of seperateness, of duality, is a pure illusion, for just try to imagine seeing the disk by itself, without any sort of background at all! Conversely, try to imagine a background without any figure with which to contrast it! Inescapably, the one cannot exist without the other- they are united in nature, and seperated in thought only.
And so my friends, when thinking about the Omega Point Singularity, keep your expectations of the actual Unknown Event inside the black bubble of Uncertainty and watch as all that is Known spirals around its vortex over the course of the coming year. See if you can lose sight of the illusory divide between the background of all possibilities and the foreground of any one actuality. Got it? Great. Now try to keep it up until December of 2012!Finally, consider how Albert Einstein defined freedom in the pursuit of truth: The liberty of choice is of a special kind; it is not in any way similar to the liberty of a writer of fiction- rather, it is similar to that of a man engaged in solving a well designed word puzzle. He may, it is true, propose any word as the solution; but, there is only one word which really solves the puzzle in all its forms.
