Serious questioning

This response is to Phil’s reply on his very informative and insightful philosophical blog – . He has been one of the writers in wordpress who has been an encouragement to me writing.

Phil : If only Hegel could be wrested from the hands of those (i.e. academic philosophers) who use him (as Hegel wanted) to maintain the crippled and crippling cultural and ideological lie that we in the West are the bearers of ‘Reason’ – which is to be understood only as linguistic, conceptual and propositional. Hegel’s philosophy is the highest development of Western mysticism (Magee argues that he was an Hermeticist [Glenn Alexander Magee, Hegel and the Hermetic Tradition, Cornell University Press, Ithaca, 2001]) – building on the intricacy of Proclus but still retaining the depth and poetry of Plotinus. Another great thinker, Marx, rightly stood that immensely powerful philosophy on its feet. My view is that by developing critically and honestly on this – together with science – is the way forward. What do you think?

Serious questioning must reach deep within to what we may be truly about. It is difficult to be honest, as our authenticity I think lies beyond cognition. The great philosophers refer to what is beyond thinking. We may understand the nature of things, that it is beyond “reason”, and step into the mystical in “intricate” and deep creative ways. The basis of our various cultures, indeed of our being human, are there.

I think we need to be absolute, determine all human endeavours as what we as identity or self may experience and, beyond the risk of nihilism that such an exercise can incur, understand our reality as projection, created and placed by a whole being in and of creation, in reality. Projection allows for us as a part to consider a relation with our whole, a whole being and whole self in and of reality to whom we, as an identity together with our reality that we may experience and sense, belong. He or she encompasses our knowing as well as our unknowing including our emotive, somatic, and deeper instinctive and intuitive sense and being, as well as what may be considered our mysticism and spiritualism, as parts of a godly presence in and of reality.

Otherwise, our way is bound in what it is like, notion and sense. Science is already philosophical; its frontiers are concerned with notions that has gone beyond empirical reckoning in distance, time and size or dimension. Like our exponential population curve that seem to be reflected in all parameters such as social extremes, species and environmental degradation, financial compromise, traffic, development and change, there is more but the way forwards seem less likely. We may be “more closer” to reality but can never get there with our notions and models. However, reality is there.

We must understand our actuality as projection. In referring to our whole the witness is included as a projected part, and we become that, what we are, a projected part. Reality, the whole body in and of creation, is not some thing to have, become or get to, but relate with. We will always be a projected part, but rather than lost from our whole in being identified exclusively with what we experience, be free, supported and realized in our actuality as projection, by the whole body. Rather than isolated in Emptiness (the disassociation through which we are having an experience), be connected by Nothingness (the absence in projection of the whole body who must be there).

I plan to explain more of how it is, the nature of the human condition and its relation with reality, introduce more of what to do, to relate with the whole body as a projected part and actuality that I have worked out, and introduce what happens, as we relate with reality. However, I think it must begin by establishing a difference between our projected self and the whole being and whole self who projects our reality, as well as our projected reality from reality, of whole entities in creation.

I hope you can sense a way beyond my passion.

One thought on “Serious questioning

  1. Hello Tach, thank you for your kind words and for your thoughtful response. As someone who believes in a passionate commitment to developing one’s creativity in which ever way one wishes to explore, I clearly recognise that commitment in you too – in your writing and in your art – and look forward to following how you develop both. Best wishes, Phil
