Timčák 3.6 Sankalpa to Create a New Reality A more advanced approach is when one’s karmic traces do not allow one to perform a proper meditation due to blocks in one’s energy system. A shortcut could be to ask one’s patron principle to create a nested reality where the jiva is free from these karmic traces thus entering into a higher state of mind can automatically occur. This way even the highest state of samādhi can be worked out. If, for some reason, this request cannot be accomplished one can still ask one’s chosen deity to emulate this state as if it was a nested reality. For us, jivas, it doesn’t really count what type of reality is compiled as every experience is simply a specific distribution of tattwas, however, the consciousness due to its solar nature is totally unbound from such lunar experiences. The key is to experience a higher reality, because any such experience help one remember one’s real origin, which merges all the created dualistic perceptions into unity. A key consideration here is to use timing (e.g., a give timespan or deadline) to destroy this emulated reality and integrate the experiences into the native living on the original loka. Another important aspect is to keep the energy system rooted in its initial dimension otherwise the mind “disconnects” from its origin, which is the exact reason why we are in samsāra now. 3.7 Sankalpa of Devotion While the previous examples were logically built constructions, we should never forget that our consciousness is so powerful, because it is so tiny that nothing can capture it. Human love is “attachment” (Sa. rāga) filled with expectations while “pure love” (Sa. prem) is also the will for eternal sacrifice. When love totally gets absorbed into the highest Consciousness, they unite by merging into a state that can be described as Sat–Chit–Ānanda. As within the limits of our individual consciousness we cannot love the higher/Absolute consciousness the way It loves us, the sankalpa to help us love in a way as It loves us, could also bring a leap in our sādhanā. 4 Vulnerability Assessment Using “I” Until now, we suggested a step-by-step approach using sankalpa and offered it to purify our energy system via different dharana practices. However, to keep up with the recent advances in computer science that heavily builds upon Artificial Intelligence (AI) [6] either to build code (GitHub Copilot 2021) or assess it [7], it is worth testing whether a similar scheme could also be utilized in our sādhanā. In chapter 3.1, we mentioned that use of Sri Yantra to build up a shield for us during meditation. While this scheme is efficient for our meditation, it is more like a firewall rather than a fix for our karmic weaknesses. If we continue drawing similarities between the nature of software and our energy systems, we find out that a bug-free code is something that behaves in all the cases according to its job description. If an application is formally verified to be correct, then no malefic instrumentation is feasible. Similarly, all our problems come from the contaminations of our nadis that represent the weaknesses where non-physical entities can find vulnerabilities, which they “exploit” using vibrations just like code injection attacks take place in cybersecurity. AI-based solutions like Mayhem were designed and developed by the PPP hacker team of the Carnegie Mellon University in 2016 for DARPA’s Cyber Grand Challenge to find and patch security vulnerabilities in unknown applications automatically. Mayhem, as the winner of DARPA’s Challenge could also play at the hacker world championship (DEFCON CTF Finals in Las Vegas) against 14 other human teams including the team (!SpamAndHex) one of the authors of this paper also played. Though, at that time, humans could still win over the machine, Mayhem played successfully and did a really great job. In yoga, we can utilize this concept similarly. Instead of AI, we have a real Intelligence called Mahat/ Buddhi. This primordial emanation of the Ultimate Reality
