Make a plan. Best thing, to do. Saves you worrying about what to do, what we can and should do; for which outcome, with what know how, and for what reason or purpose. By what context (world view) do you think you do anything ? By which construction (causality) can we pretend to own our outcome ?
So save the whales, get rid of plastic ? How can the world get better while even the people who donate to the funds want to catch jet flights to see the whales, and the delegates meet internationally for global warming ? The system that delegates represent, the cogwheel that each governing entity is, is a part of the human system that is destroying the Earth. The parts that represent good, add to the same system, it seems.
The various perspectives we, personally and as a group, use to be as certain of a situation, may have some basis for the several plans of action we usually have. There’s conflicting concerns – to save the Earth and our selves, plan for growth, development, maintenance, sustainability, subsistence, survival, suicide. And we must stop thinking the world is the real world. And who actually is, is happening and does everything.
We failed to nail it in modernity. Now in post-modernity, we stick to plan in the human condition, not try to fix fundamental flaws, and are happy to keep going. We have always denied, put aside aspects of our self, to face the day, others and the world. Outcome justifies the means, life costs and investment.
The world is there before we open our eyes. The conscious is hearing the world before we wake more, look and see the world, and get up out of bed. The whole body in reality is left behind, unless we realise the whole body encompass the world we think we stand in and before we wake up.
In a recent post, I pointed out the multi-point nature of reality and the whole body (being of reality), and the perspectives we hold, in our minds, a point in our projected reality (that may be an indication of what is in reality) with. Following from there perhaps is the hc and reality in the first person.
I am in the human condition, an identity having an experience. There’s what I experience in my mind, and I am conscious of the world. The conscious is conscious of my reality, the world and what I may experience, in the mind, in feeling and being.
The conscious is conscious of the world. They seem to be there before me and my noticing and sensing, before I open my eyes.
The conscious is conscious of both the world outside, inside and me. I am aware of what the witness witnesses.
I may be knowing in my conscious identity (of what the conscious is conscious of), and mind identity (of what I experience, notice, sense and form notions about). Body, feeling and being are reduced to what I know or notice of them, till integration with my whole and becoming a part, takes me to knowing and feeling, and knowing, feeling and being, and generally to what is there of my projected reality.
I am made of various projected entities including those forgotten or subconscious. My entirety is more than the sum of my parts, within a whole being more complete for having a more integrated part and who is also always more than the sum of his parts. My truth is in becoming a projected part, of a whole body including his projection (and so my reality) in, and of, reality. Before this, I am flawed as a part isolated from its whole, lost identified within the human condition in what I experience. The whole self is beyond me and my experience, beyond my knowing and unknowing, feeling, being and my more. The whole body encompass my all including me and my not-me in my reality conscious of and witnessed.
I know what it’s like
To be an Orang-utan
With a sack or blanket
Covering your head
Not begging for attention
But wishing to be dead
I wrote my final high school music composition inspired by seeing an Orangutan in a cage in front of a backdrop of the city-scape across the harbour, at Taronga Zoo Sydney, Australia. Reading Captivity. (https://personallydisordered.wordpress.com/) has brought me back to that sense I also had back then. And now,
The bars of humanity that keep in captivity
those both inside and outside as captives,
are the bars of the mind that determine and judge,
box and put inside, and gaze through at outcomes.
The human condition both reflective of and
expressive of our self and the world.
There’s an actual self and there must be
a whole self missing,
a whole being who must be there
but we are isolated from
in being an identified part in projection.
How we do things in our self or the mechanism by which we do things like identify and remember, even with our bodies eg. throw a spear, is difficult to determine. The whole body has the eyes but we think we see, and the setting up a means to observe one’s self, affects our situation.
We may become aware of being identified, but it is another thing to determine or be certain. What is identification, who and what is identifying and being identified, and how ? Rather than try to determine what it is or what is going on, it suffices to know that it or we in our reality is there. Not to avoid the problems of determining and self referencing but to exist or be as projection or projected actuality, so as to be in relation with the whole body.
The whole we sense or that manifests in our mind, as well as our deeper feelings and sense of our being, is all experience, and a projected part of the real whole self, within which (that projected apart we are in) we may contemplate our whole who is beyond our sense or what we sense but projects both. We normally relate to things we think we are separate from, within our projected reality. We do not know how to relate as a part with our whole.
I try to stay with orientation, in space and with the whole body.
First, to allow for the mere possibility, we must distinguish reality and the whole body in and of reality from our projected reality that includes our mind’s reality, our reality of identity and experience, and our deeper conditions of feeling, being, instinct and intuition. Rather than lost, engaged in our identification within our reality, we can make our selves presentable to be related with our whole – there, not as-is as phenomena witnessed, but as a projected actuality there, including the witness (constructology, after phenomenology).
We as an identity, are a part of a “construct” or make-up projected by the whole body from his or her nervous system. What happens to us in relating with our whole includes all that can happen to us in our reality. Our everything, all that we are, and may be or become, experience and have, or happens (to us, me the identity), are projected parts. Beyond stage, process and development and at each stage, process and development is the whole body and our relation with him or her. The whole is a real being, physical in gravity, present in the present, in real space and time (rather than our projected sense of our time and space in our reality of experience). The whole is more than the sum of his or her parts indeed, and in parts becoming more of a part the whole must be more integrated and complete.
The whole body is also of upright human form. The brain-spine and nerve roots float pristine in their skeletal casing of skull and spine, central and on the mid-line within the whole body. The whole body is a reference for ideals (for our whole), but also for our reality. We are projected around the head. We may extend in what we experience out side and within, or change in our self or identity having an experience. There is also a witness and conscious, to be aware of and conscious of, being and having an experience. We extend in our reality in relation with the whole body, projected from beyond any sense of body, by the whole body, through the whole body.
Generally people can follow projection, that our reality is projected by the whole body. However, the consequences of projection reach both the self and reality. We may not put two and two together, but at the two ends of projection is the whole body in and of reality (multi-pointed as reality is, and more than the sum of multi-pointed parts is the whole), who projects our reality, and all that is us of our reality as parts including separation and distance, objectivity and independence, our self and experience, the world and what we experience, the conscious and witness, our sense and deeper being.
We can regard the whole body, with the image of level brain, vertical spine, even nerve roots, and on level other end or pelvis, as a godly being of creation, wilderness, nature, wholy ghost, Buddha hood, Nothingness, the way, Jesus, our whole, truth and being, reality.
There’s hardly time to determine things for one another. We hurl and are hurled terms, text and images; fleeting feelings surface and we are swept along by them. Let us come to understand our part as projected by the whole body, and consider being that and being in relation with the whole self as a projected part. Though others may be denying their whole, we are closer to one another’s whole self in becoming a part of our whole. Also the whole body is more complete with more integrated parts.
