Akasha is a term for either space or æther in traditional Indian cosmology, depending on the religion. The term has been adopted in Western occultism and spiritualism in the late 19th century. In many modern Indo-Aryan languages and Dravidian languages the corresponding word retains a generic meaning of "sky"; the word in Sanskrit is derived from a root kāś meaning "to be". It appears as a masculine noun in Vedic Sanskrit with a generic meaning of "open space, vacuity". In Classical Sanskrit, the noun may express the concept of "sky. In Vedantic philosophy, the word acquires its technical meaning of "an ethereal fluid imagined as pervading the cosmos". In Vedantic Hinduism, Akasha means the essence of all things in the material world. A Vedic mantra “pṛthivyāpastejovāyurākāśāt” indicates the sequence of initial appearance of the five basic gross elements. Thus, first appeared the space, from which appeared air, from that fire or energy, from which the water, therefrom the earth, it is one of the Panchamahabhuta, or "five gross elements".

The direct translation of Akasha is the word meaning "upper sky" or'space' in Hinduism. The Nyaya and Vaisheshika schools of Hindu philosophy state that Akasha or aether is the fifth physical substance, the substratum of the quality of sound, it is the One and All Pervading physical substance, imperceptible. According to the Samkhya school, Akasha is one of the five Mahābhūtas having the specific property of sound. In the Shiva Purana, it identifies Akasha having "the only attribute of sound". Adherents of the heterodox Cārvāka or Lokāyata philosophy held that this world is made of four elements only, they exclude the fifth, because its existence cannot be perceived. Akasha is space in the Jain conception of the cosmos. Akasha is one of the six dravyas and it accommodates the other five, namely sentient beings or souls, non-sentient substance or matter, principle of motion, the principle of rest, the principle of time, it is all-pervading and made of infinite space-points. It falls into the Ajiva category, divided into two parts: Aloakasa.

In Loakasa the universe forms only a part. Akasha is that which makes room for the existence of all extended substances. At the summit of the lokākāśa is the Siddhashila. In Buddhist phenomenology Akasha is divided into endless space; the Vaibhashika, an early school of Buddhist philosophy, hold Akasha's existence to be real.Ākāsa is identified as the first arūpa jhāna, but translates as "infinite space." The Western mystic-religious philosophy called Theosophy has popularized the word Akasha as an adjective, through the use of the term "Akashic records" or "Akashic library", referring to an etheric compendium of all knowledge and history. Scott Cunningham uses the term Akasha to refer to "the spiritual force that Earth, Air and Water descend from". Ervin László in Science and the Akashic Field: An Integral Theory of Everything, based on ideas by Rudolf Steiner, posits "a field of information" as the substance of the cosmos, which he calls "Akashic field" or "A-field". Ervin László sets out a clear paradigm in this work, in line with the latest scientific discoveries on the one hand, ancient philosophies of high stature on the other.

He explains the transition area between the non-manifested Potence and the manifested: a causal Field outside time and space in which all information about the manifested is "saved". László describes it as a non-dimensional holographic imprint. Everything manifested is in-formed from this A-Field on a macro level.

Car brokers in Australia

Car brokers specialise in helping car buyers source and buy cars. They offer services such as finding a particular used car model to fit a budget, getting the lowest price on a new car, or negotiating with a used car seller on behalf of a client that located the car by themselves. There have been car brokers operating in Australia as long as there have been car dealers. Car dealers recognised that some individuals stood out in their circle of friends or community as experts on car buying; the dealers started offering them a spotters fee each time they would bring a customer to the dealership. If the customer bought the car, the broker would be paid. After some time, a business model evolved where businesses would set up and call themselves motor brokers. Motor brokers would be started by car sales people who wanted a change of lifestyle, they were exclusively one-person operations, operated as de facto car dealers. They would be licensed as car dealers, fous on achieving the best bottom line deal for the customer.

As the popularity of the Internet increased, the first pure online car brokers appeared around 2003. These car brokers are typified by the lack of a dealer's license, only dealing in new cars; this allows a high level of automation. In spite of car brokers having been in existence for decades, general public awareness of them in Australia is limited. Car brokers work with their own established network of new car dealerships; when a client requires a new car, the car broker will contact one or more dealers in their network and determine which one will provide the required car at the lowest price. Delivery and location parameters may be considered; some car brokers offer to deliver the car to the client's home or place of work Some car brokers can help source used cars as well as new ones. In many of these cases, the car broker will buy the car and sell it to their client. Used car brokers are licensed; the reasons for having a dealer's license are: The car may be bought at an auction where private sellers cannot bid.

The car may be sourced from a private seller, but the buyer must purchase from a licensed dealer due to financing requirements. Clients prefer buying from a licensed dealer as statutory warranties apply in most cases. Many clients buy used cars via brokers without first seeing the car. Other services provided by car brokers can include: Test drives. Using a car broker to arrange test drives removes the stressful situation of having to go to a dealership and be subjected to a sales pitch while trying to evaluate a car. Financing. A finance broker will be aligned with the car broker to source discounted finance. Pre-approved finance. Cars are one of the most expensive depreciating. It's a right of passage to adulthood when a person buys their first car, but many younger people can not afford a car. That's. Car Financiers lend money to allow accepted clients to purchase their next car sooner than they otherwise would, work with the client to create a repayment plan; however interest rates do vary and arranging your own finance is better.

Extended warranties. Paint protection, rust protection, window tinting and other third party options and accessories. Car insurance. Many car brokers disclose their referral fee on their websites; these referral fees are minimal amounts known as "spotter fees" and as dealers are not having to pay for extra advertising or staff costs they welcome the extra volume orders from their regular brokers. With the Internet's popularity increasing car brokers are becoming less common. Today we see more online classifieds/broker type systems. Online web applications have completely replaced the broker, and broker fees have become listing fees, with some sites charging a spotters fee when the deal has been sealed
