What is Mera?

Word “Mera” stands for “merit” or “measure” in Russian. All existence can be characterized by three major categories: Matter, Information and Mera. This roughly corresponds to Hegel’s Objective, Subjective and Absolute Spirit. When we peform some sort of activity, subject acts upon object according to it’s measure of understanding, knowledge, skill, system of belief and convictions etc. Likewise, object acts upon the subject according to the physical laws of nature, or the merit of physicality of nature. This view puts an end to the question of primacy of matter vs idea: both domains are co-related via mera, or measure, or merit. In spiritual terms, these three are the World, the Soul and Spirit which roughly corresponds to the Body, Soul and Spirit. Spirit, which is the dominion of Mera, is the Sacred Unknown, the Mystery upon which the existence is built. Gaining intuitive understanding of this Mystery is what leads to the knowledge of things natural and supernatural, to a wide spectrum of understandings from the ground physical laws to things such as magical and miraculous abilities (called Siddhis in Sanskrit). In buddhist world view of Samsara (the dominion of ignorance, lust and hate, characterized by impermanence and suffering), Gods live on Mount Meru. This is not a coincidence, for it is a word of the same root origins. Samsaric Gods are the beings who are on the path of intuitive studies of Mera. Meralogia or Meralogy is the science whose goal is to research Mera, or the Mystery of Life.
