Tantra Illuminated

All that exists, throughout all time and beyond, is one infinite divine Consciousness, free and blissful, which projects within the field of its awareness a vast multiplicity of apparently differentiated subjects and objects: each object an actualization of a timeless potentiality inherent in the Light of Consciousness, and each subject the same plus a contracted locus of self-awareness. This creation, a divine play, is the result of the natural impulse within Consciousness to express…

Here's how to convert 0.5625 to a fraction...

There is not much that can be done to figure out how to write 0.5625 as a fraction, except to literally use what the decimal portion of your number, the .5625, means.

So we can just say that .5625 is the same as 5625/10000.

The fraction      is not reduced to lowest…
