Certainty is in the mind and what is in the mind ambiguous and uncertain.
We can be rational and logical in the mind and what is irrational is what leaves us perplexed in the mind, even after addressing the inconsistencies, contradictions, conflicts, and hypocrisies, the so called paradoxes and conundrums of philosophy and science.
“Our world” is ambiguous, self-evident only as the self is. Is it rational to believe in something rather than nothing, or in nothing at all?
Science and philosophy can only get closer to being correct about reality – with models and theories of “what’s happening” and “what it’s like”. They, as with our minds, are about what we can sense and correctly infer with models and theories of our projected world – of what is actual for us, there in our projected reality, but not real.
Yet their theories are plausible and the models applicable. This can be, because “the world” is projected individually but by a common human whole body in reality – we can empathise and identify with our ideas that can also be shared and appreciated – and “the world” is an indication of reality – we can formulate models that work within known or tested conditions. The magnifiers and extensions that amplify what we can sense and observe, or what we can do in our physical being in the real world, strap on to the whole body. Through the whole body in reality, we experience something of reality including the whole body, in our mind and deeper being and form notions about them in our mind.
The whole body is in reality, and is a special entity in the “real world” – for we as self and “our world”, though the world seems separate from us to us, are both projected parts, created and placed by the whole body’s Central Nervous System. Every other entity in reality can only exist as a projected indication in our world as object to us as the experiencing self or subject.
Realism (a philosophical stand for one reality) must go beyond our phenomenal world, of our world that appears to our senses and we form ideas about, in order to determine a definitive and true one reality. Otherwise realism is confined in a projected reality of many perspectives and situations in contradiction to its one reality. And here is our containment in our reality; our circularity is with an uncertain sense that we form notions of, and with notions that we cannot prove of themselves except through what we sense. Reality must include the splits in our reality – our inside and out, our self as subject of experience and its object or what we experience, the conscious and our being, the mind and our sense of matter.
Within our projected reality are many realities and truths, worlds and entities. The whole body in reality surrounds, encompasses and impregnates all projected realities pertaining to our self, and aspects of the self including our mind (rational and irrational), the conscious, our deeper being , the self , what we experience and the witness. Each one whole being projects “the world” and a self that may “experience” that world. We think or presume we sense and form notions, but a whole body projects the world from what he or she senses, and “we” as self and “our” notions too, come from beyond our reality, and ultimately from the whole body. In our relation as part with our whole is our truth, freedom, will and destiny.
We are reflective and we project (as described in psychology), we identify with the world and others but also with our self, we are intentional and express. And we may relate with the whole body, of whom we as self are a part – while the Earth supports life, and a whole body lives to support us. I place my hope in this for the world, the repercussions of which are unforseen, not just as of the uncertainty of our reality but of an unfactored Truth of the whole body and our part. Am I right to think it arouses our human curiosity and need for salvation, validation as well as destiny that has laid dormant forever from Truth, and from our particular truths laid down exhausted through the development of the self, destruction of dogma and disappearing future that culminated in modernity?
