What is the meaning of disappearance of matter, energy and awareness?

[Shri Anil asked: Padanamaskaram Swami, Kindly answer the following questions, at Your Divine Lotus Feet-anil. What is the meaning of disappearance of Matter, energy and awareness? Does it mean that all these 3 are converted finally into the subtle energy called space?]

Swami replied: No. If space remains, energy remains and such a situation is not the total dissolution of the creation. Except the ultimate space (Parama Vyoma) occupied by the father of heaven (God Datta), all the space also disappears, and only then total dissolution of the creation takes place. If people think that space is nothing, in such a case, you can say that the total dissolution of the creation has taken place even if space remains. But space is subtle energy and not nothing. When space disappears, the total creation disappears. Such a situation is unimaginable, hence we say that the cause of creation (unimaginable God) remains when the product (creation) disappears. When pot disappears, its cause, the lump of mud appears. Hence, in the final dissolution, space disappears resulting in an unimaginable situation, which is the cause of the space and which is the unimaginable God.
