    Isn’t that based on the saying “Man is the measure of all things”?

    My understanding is that is symbolic of “Mind” being the measure of all things. It is, the Indian philosophers and Desert Christian “Fathers” say, the dividing mind which carves up the seamless unity of the world into apparently separate, disconnected things.

    I just got an email today from a friend who teaches meditation, noting that both dogs and little kids are great reminders that, instead of living all the time in stressful mind-created psychological time, constantly fretting about the past and either worry or craving something that’s going to happen in the future, we can rest, let go of the mind’s compulsion to measure time and space and so immerse ourselves in present (Timeless) experience, that our hearts open, we reconnect with our deeper timeless-space less Consciousness and begin to see things as William Blake hinted:

    When the doors of perception are cleansed, we see things as they actually are – Infinite.
