The progression of spirituality directly corresponds to subjecting the third dimension. Common society resides at a lower level of consciousness and perceives the third dimension as objective and absolute in contrast to a subjective perception. Earthly materialism predominates inner desire among the non-spiritual personality including the human body itself. The lower level of consciousness creates ignorance of non-duality. Consequently, ignorance retains the individual within the duality of the third dimension and within rebirth cycle.
Objective (as in “objective”) adj. : belonging to immediate experience of actual things or events; “concrete benefits”; “a concrete example”; “there is no objective evidence of anything of the kind”

The ego attaches onto objects and the duality of the earth. Thus, the spiritual seeker to attain the ultimate goal of spirituality the individual will progress by subjecting the elements of the darkness within the world, simultaneously, pursuing spiritual action and devoting all action to Divine direction.

Scriptural References related to Subjecting the Third Dimension:
The Bhagavad Gita chapter 13:10,11; paraphrased from two different translations.
“An unwavering devotion to the Divine. Center all thought on Divinity. Turn your back on social life and the commotion of the crowds. Have an intense love for solitude, and distaste for involvement in worldly affairs. Persistence in knowing the inner spirit (Self) and awareness in the goal of Knowing – this is called true knowledge; what differs from it is ignorance”.
Jesus, when he walked the earth, continually subjected this world. John 16:33; John writes according the translation of the KJV that “Jesus has overcome the world”. The Greek word “nikao” they translate into “overcome” defines as “to subdue”. The translator’s most likely get confused, not knowing what John meant. What John wrote was that Jesus subdued the world, thus he made this world subjective to his true source and did not get involved in worldly pursuits. Matthew and Luke write that Jesus always looked for places of solitude.
The Dhammapada teaches that The Buddha said at chapter 13:4
“Perceive the world as a bubble. Perceive this world as a mirage. If you see the world in this way, you render the Lord of Death powerless. The Buddha taught subjecting this objective world.
