Questions unanswered  

We are too
quick to the chase
end game defines
our purpose and truth

Happiness too
becomes a thing to chase
wonderment refines
our part but struth

What to do?
shatters our place
so what? undermines
our uncertain truth

Awe and you
allow innocence to chance
with witness divines
our part in living being whole truth

We’re a knobbly join
a fleeting fluctuating float
isolating join in between
our outside and within
worlds

What we experience
and the experience itself
outside and within
our self in between
the wot and the wit (see diag. below)

What is experience
without self
is there self
without experience,
it’s a wobbly join

But we’re witnessed
a deeper being is there
and are conscious
and all encompassed
by a whole being within creation
knobbly join

The witness

The witness is a void, like a displaced or disassociated complement to the manifestant parts of our reality, namely the self and what it experiences, by which they are recognised or made aware. As we enter our actuality, the conscious always conscious of and our deeper being are also recognised. The self as an actuality consists then of these disassociated aspects, including the witness. Our projected actuality may be captured in space and related with the whole body.

Regression Rejection Return

We await and sense our doom
from inside our mother’s womb
in case it’s just another room
we move to before our tomb

Living being encompass our all
our rise and fall within his/her hall
we wander around as if in a mall
seeing and sensing but avoiding the wall
the wall that separates us from our whole

The whole body carry’s our soul
lives and moves as the entity sole
he/she is our model and role
pays for our toll
allows passage through our all

So slow to be and be free
exist as part of a whole entity
beyond the wall that sets us as identity
gain entry to life and plea
for our part in who lives and will die for thee

What is the witness

The witness is not a “what”
a concept or notion
but part of the construct for
having an experience of the “what”

Asking “what is the witness?”
is like a camera
trying to turn its aperture
to capture its film

And the self as an actuality
cannot be a concept
because actuality is not a concept;
our reality is experience, notion and sense
“what” we think and sense is not an actuality

And in self referencing or
the self referencing the self
is a conundrum, the self referencing conundrum;
it is the confusion and avoidance
when approaching the necessary disassociation
for having an experience (my def’n),
it’s the agreement and conspiracy
let’s keep things to notion and sense
of “what’s what” and avoid the conundrum
that we won’t face and cannot
in “what” (concept),
“what we experience”,
and “the experience itself of what”

Right in the depths
of that conundrum
is the witness
like a void

The backdrop and reference for the experience,
what is experienced
and the self having an experience

A vacuum, disassociation itself
the displacement for the manifestation of
the self and experience,
for our reality to be and witnessed

What is experienced
is referenced and determined
by the self
in terms of the self and its
perception –
states of conscious, mind and being as well as
condition of body and its sensors
context –
background including culture, gender, race and age,
history, own past and education, experience
and expression –
mainly language, gesture, costume, prompts and props

The witness is a greater self
it references the self having and experience
as well as the experience itself

My point is to capture all
as projection is a category
beyond what and having an experience of
and its construct including the witness

CNS creates and places the world we may experience
what we experience, the experience, the self having an experience
the conscious and deeper being
the disassociation between displaced parts
and the witness to recognise these

Actuality, the self as experience,
being experiential of self,
skirts the conundrum of baby talk and babble
stop with your words and slow down for your actuality
and before long, before your Babel’s tower turns to rubble, refer to whole body

From projected actuality to reality
category but also reference for
our reality and self does belong
before rest of creation
to a whole being

Witness is a part projected
from the whole body in reality
orientation allow for this perspective and speak

The wot (world out there) and the wit (world in there)
the object of our experience “what”, the self and witness
there-ness of what’s there beyond what they are
“where” as projection in relation to whole body
to relate with the whole body there, is and as,
and in and of, reality

Man the machine   

Man the machine
type away the screen
lean on the mouse ’n
make the cursor curse

Across the screen
through driver glean
what’s in the housing
of our true purpose

Marx gathered and figured
the consequences of manning
the machines that do the work
of 10 fold and more

And 10 fold and more
need seek work elsewhere
and more to consume
what comes out of machines

Man the machine
we are now latched on top
to tap away our lap
and become
man the machine

Question and statement witnessed

 

We are   are we ?zz2

I am   am I ?

You are   are you ?

Statement and question.

And there‘s no answer
without a question.          ————>

So, silence ……. !               <———–

But yet, there is a witness.

Witness is the displaced complement and reference to
what manifests of our reality.

Like the audience and the performancezz3
that make up the show,
the witness to our self and experience              ——->
make up our reality.

Our reality is
a projected actuality
created and placed by a whole being
we belong to as a part.

Souled (not sold) and spirited
there and alive
no concept no question
with opinions, answers and identities only as parts
and referenced by the rest of creation.

The “Introduction” for “Orientation”

This is the first part from the “Introduction” for “Orientation”. I wrote it some time ago and have recently began cleaning it up.

I would very much appreciate your feed back. I mean it for a general educated public and through it, wish to convey my understanding of the human condition, the whole body and our relation with him/her, which I have also presented in my blog.

Orientation a method : to capture the human condition and introduce reality

Introduction

The process of reality and our part

I wish to convey to you the “process of reality”.
It is the process of the whole body that we,
as an identity or the self, are inseparably involved in.

However, we do not understand or fully participate
in this involvement with the whole body.
On the contrary, we normally see our self
as independent in our reality, as a free agent….well, we try!

 

our reality and reality

Our reality is conscious experience, notion and sense, of our self, others and the world. They are projected parts of the whole body projected by the brain-spine or CNS (Central Nervous System). (…1) Our reality does actually exist, but as projection, while the whole body exists in reality. We do not usually make this fundamental distinction between projection and reality, and regard our projected actuality as reality.

The whole body is in and of reality, solid in gravity, present in the present, alive among other actual entities on Earth, in and of creation and touched by the rest of creation. For us, as his/her projected part, reality is the whole body alive in creation.

The categories we may consider then, are : our projected reality of notion, experience and sense; projected actuality or projection; nervous activity; the brain-spine; the whole body in and of reality, spirited at core and touched by the rest of creation; all life on Earth; the Universe; and All creation God.

I take care not to use the possessive pronouns “our”, “your” or “my” for the whole body, whole self or whole being because I wish to distinguish the whole body (in and of reality) from the notion and sense of the body within our projected reality we readily regard as our own. The reality of the whole body is beyond our reality and we belong to her/him as her/his projected part.

As the projector of our reality, the CNS and in turn the whole body, encompass or include in their existence, all we experience. We exist as projection projected from within the substance of the brain-spine, just as the running of software may manifest on the screen but occurs within the computer. We and our reality are of nervous or neuronal (as in neuron or nerve cell) activity within the living cellular organ that is the CNS.

That we are projection means our only possible contact with a real entity is the whole body we belong to as a projected part. Every other association we have is had within our projected reality, with projected entities, projected from the whole body. If they really exist ie. if they are indications of real things in reality, we are closer to their actuality in reality, in considering the whole body because she/he is in reality next to them.

Yet, for all that we are a part of the whole body, we seem to exist apart from the whole body. First, we are disassociated from the whole body and the CNS for being projected by them. They do not exist for us in projection. Furthermore, we tend to identify exclusively with what we experience or what is in our reality, with no need to consider that we may be a part and be isolated there from our source.

Action further reinforces our isolating conviction in our reality. Though the whole body actually does (in reality), we identify with our sense of being and doing – not only determine “what’s what”, but presume “I do”, take the credit for “doing”, and even try to be responsible for what “I will do and did”.

In thinking too, we find the convincing clench for “I do it” in the results of thinking, be it an answer, realisation or mental exhaustion. We assume to be the causal agent, initiating and enacting, for action and result, in the “doing” of anything.

We can be comfortable, in our identity, with machines and tools that embellish our actions, from slotting coins into poker machines, to operating the computer or facing the screen with the games console, using a jack hammer or paint brush, or sitting in the driver’s seat behind the steering wheel; do something and something happens means “I did it”.

Knowing seals our isolation. In what we know, we are certain of our self in our world view and causal order. Even in knowing we don’t know or knowing we are a projected part of the whole body, unless we can relate with the whole body who encompasses our knowing and our unknowing (beyond knowing), the certainty of our reality seems to be the only sensible option.

 zz O Intro

Philosophers and scientists tend to agree that we cannot know reality, not directly. (…2) We cannot be with or be direct with reality because reality cannot exist in projection. All we have is what presents to our senses and what we make of them in our mind, our notions.

Yet, we are a projected part of our whole; the whole body is a special entity in reality for us. We must refer to the whole body, but he or she is beyond our reality. It is not enough to reach out (still within projection), disengage and float mesmerised, or transcend to be the witness. Can we relate with the whole body? Whether we can seems a thing of great mystery.

I am not proposing we become the whole body or the whole self; we will always be a part projected by the whole body. However, the hc (human condition) needs to be addressed for its incessant tendency to be identified with what is in its reality, exclusive of and isolated from the whole body alive in creation. When we are captured as a projected actuality, reality, that is the whole body, may be introduced. In such a way, we may be influenced by the whole body and in turn, affect the whole as an integrating part.

relation with, rather than choosing the whole body

Others have proposed we choose reality against our reality. Plato describes, in his famous allegory of humanity clinging to realities, men held in caves identifying with the shadows from flames as reality, who chose these against the real world when released, to return to their familiar shadows. In the movie “Matrix” (futuristic trilogy that examines the possibility of escape from our virtual reality, to a bleak reality of survival against a world of machines run by an artificial intelligence), a choice is also offered with a red or a blue pill, between reality and a computer generated reality; some choose the familiar, cosy virtuality that seems carefree compared to the desperate struggle against machines in the movie’s reality.

Human endeavours generally involve a choice and commitment for the better, closer, or for more. In determining, judging and identifying with our particular self and experiences, of achievements and losses, we are exclusive of and separate from our rest or other parts, as well as our whole. The CNS and the whole body however, do not exclude any of our projected parts, but encompass all that we are, experience, and seemingly do. Nothing is denied; our separation and togetherness, our sense of being and the world, the whole body in reality encompasses all that he/she projects.

Reality is not a choice. Rather it involves us through our relation with the whole body. It is not any exclusive commitment, but it encompasses our all, our sense of self, others and the world. It is the whole body alive in creation and our projected actuality and part.

The identity is lost from reality, identified with what it experiences. We live within our phenomenal world that presents to our senses, identified with our self and what we experience and determine “what’s what” of others and the world. Not only are we unfamiliar with our own projected actuality, the whole body in reality and our part, there is much that has built up of what we have denied, put aside, struggled and mesmerised with, to safe guard our reality and our “I’m it” certainty or familiarity (shadows of Plato’s cave) away from the whole body and so, reality. The whole body’s presence, always changing in the forever changing present, is put aside in denial against our moment to moment’s isolating grasp within projection, of our sense of time, place and being.

The process of reality is “what happens”, as we relate with the whole body. It involves us “becoming a part” of the whole body. There is more to our reality and we are closer to reality, the whole body alive in creation. It is the resolution of our isolating settings and exclusive assertions. The whole body can be more integrated, as we become less isolated. (…3)

 

Notes

1
– anatomy and physiology : nerves connect muscle and sensory organs in all parts of the body to the CNS; nerve impulses cause movement in the body and sensation to reach the CNS
– electric stimulation to different parts of the exposed brain cause complete events to be experienced by the conscious patient during craniotomy
– effects of strokes and other injuries or lesions in certain parts of the brain and results of recovery with removal of tumours and blood clots
– various techniques of computed imaging or scans, such as CT or CAT (X-rays), MRI and f-MRI (magnetic resonance detect deoxygenated haemoglobin and so blood flow associated with neuron activity), EROS (infra-red light detect neuronal activity directly), can associate events in human reality to sites localised within the CNS in time and place
– EEG (electroencephalogram) or electric brain waves (alpha, beta gamma etc.) correlate with different states

2       Kant said we can’t – know reality. A split was established in classical Greek philosophy between Plato’s ideas and forms of a world supposedly known to the “trained” so called philosophical or intuitive mind, of absolute truths and universal existence from which emanate the phenomenal world or what we may sense, set against Aristotle and what can be determined from the marvels of that phenomenal world. Since Kant (German philosopher 1724-1804), absolute existence – the thing-in-itself or noumenon as coined by him – is generally considered unknowable even if it exists. Emphasis has been placed, against noumenon, on phenomenon and what we can observe. Science takes a step further and considers “it does not exist if it cannot be measured”.

3       From having to carry an isolated identity with its own agenda, based on “I’m it” or “it’s up to me”, the whole body can be more integrated, as we become less isolated. Potentially, the whole self can exist next to other integrated whole beings if we, not only our self but others in their self, can transcend the usual sense of association we hold each other to; with eye contact (visual), the mind’s latch (cognitive), soul’s reach (emotive) and sense of physical bond (somatic). We are further held in our reality by deeper senses of our self and one another. By referring to the whole body, these deeper settings are also encompassed.
