Freebase

  1. Realm

    A realm is a community or territory over which a sovereign rules; it is commonly used to describe a kingdom or other monarchical or dynastic state. The Old French word reaume, modern French royaume, was the word first adopted in English; the fixed modern spelling does not appear until the beginning of the 17th century. The word supposedly derives from medieval Latin regalimen, from regalis, of or belonging to a rex,. "Realm" is particularly used for those states whose name includes the word kingdom, to avoid clumsy repetition of the word in a sentence. It is also useful to describe those countries whose monarchs are called something other than "king" or "queen"; for example, the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg is a realm but not a kingdom since its monarch holds the title Grand Duke rather than King. "Realm" is also frequently used to refer to territories that are "under" a monarch, yet are not a physical part of his or her "kingdom". Similarly, the Cook Islands, Niue, and Tokelau are considered parts of the Realm of New Zealand, although they are not part of New Zealand proper. Likewise, the Faroe Islands and Greenland remain parts of the Danish Realm.

Chambers 20th Century Dictionary

  1. Realm

  2. H.W. Mann:

    Although consciousness is non-physical, it has been said that it is of the brain, and therefore in some way of the physical world. This is not the case. We can sit in meditation and observe our thoughts and emotions. Therefore, we are not our thoughts and emotions. Consciousness exists beyond the mind-body experience. Since consciousness is beyond the mind-body experience it could not have evolved. Consciousness is not of the physical realm. Consciousness is of the spiritual realm. Consciousness is what it is. Infinite.
