The ‘point of orientation’. Time is quantised as moments, for it is made of impulses to orientate. At every point of time one orientates oneself towards or away from some thing, relation or event. The moment is the zone of the intersection of forces, in which the forces act on each other and produce a resultant vector or orientated energy. The whole life of man is one of points of orientation, of decision or choice. Each moment, as an orientation, determines the man in a particular direction, unless he refuses all particular directions and allows the Absolute to act through him. At this moment the will and idea of man and of the Absolute are not different. This identification of man with the Absolute is the result of Reflexive Self-consciousness (Samadhic contemplation).
