From Absolute to Atomistic Being

Reality is originally infinite, but through identification with it's objects the boundaries of consciousness shrink.  This is an aspect of involution,  A dimension of manifestation, which begins at an even more transcendent and ineffable level of the Manifest Absolute, is the sequence or gradation from the one Absolute Consciousness to the multiplicity of seperate entities and seperate centres of consciousness.  This is explained in Kashmir Shaivism, a more philosophical-cosmological form of Tantra than the more magical and occult-orientated Bengali Shaktism.
