Excerpts about Crystal Dimension
We call this dimension of nonconceptual Reality the crystal dimension. The forms of the world appear in this dimension of true nature as shapes and colors nonconceptual presence takes. There is no knowing, but these forms are the same ones that become knowable at the dimension of pure presence. At the dimension of pure presence we saw them as noetic forms. But since these are the same forms that appear at the nonconceptual dimension, we refer to them in this dimension as prenoetic forms. They are prenoetic just as pure awareness, nonconceptual presence, is prenoetic presence. It ontologically precedes the knowing dimension, but is a ground for it. In other words, all forms appear as fundamentally prenoetic because they can and do become noetic when true nature manifests its noetic dimension. In normal experience, the nonconceptual and noetic dimensions are present simultaneously, for we both perceive and know in the same instant of experience.
The Inner Journey Home, pg. 330
In this nonconceptual dimension, or crystal dimension, all forms are perceived as nonconceptual manifestations of true nature. This includes both physical and essential forms. The whole of Reality appears now as transparent, fresh, clear, empty, but full of colors and shapes. Such perception can appear with such exquisiteness and precision that all forms become faceted. All around us we see glittering jeweled forms, the environment as a multicolored jeweled palace, brilliant with light but claiming no existence.
