Notes

The Tree of Lights that appears on the cover of The Book of Light is a visual representation of the Fabric of Consciousness and the trillions of instantiated Monads that make it up. 

The Fabric of Consciousness represents the sum total of all instantiated Monads that exist as "points of Light" within the unfolding Fabric of Consciousness.

The Fabric of Consciousness represents the manifest universe as an unfolding of Consciousness.

The Cabbalistic Tree of Life is an attempt to visually represent the Unfolding of Consciousness/Unfolding/Emanation of Consciousness

The Cabbalah presents consciousness in three states, Ain, Ain Soph, and Ain Soph Aur

The concept provides for a non-hierarchical and authority free conceptualization of Spirit. The tree like structure and the expansion of monads towards the bottom represents the expansion of number as The Fabric unfolds from Source, and nothing more. Unlike Old Energy spiritualities which posit some kind of "executive force," The Fabric of Consciousness provides for an egalitarian representation of the creative forces of this universe. It is not simply that we are all equal in the eyes of God, it is that we are all the Eyes of God. We are all intensification of God Light within the cosmic tapestry/Fabric of Consciousness (Sharp, 2006).

Experience of The Fabric can sometimes occur during powerful Connection Experiences. "Subjects speak of participating in and merging with pure (i.e., content-free) energy, white light; of witnessing the breakdown of macroscopic objects into vibratory patterns, visual nets, the collapse of external structure into wave. patterns, the awareness that everything is a dance of particles, sensing the smallness and fragility of our system, visions of the void, of world-ending explosions, of the cyclical nature of. creation and dissolution, etc."[2]. Also, "I was entering into another dimension of existence. 'I' was not. Everything was totally dissolved into a flow of matter continuously moving. No time, no space. A feeling of color, but indescribable. Feeling of movement mainly. Awareness that I, the others, are only collections of clusters of molecules, which are all part of the same stream." [3]
