The human condition is ….
lined up, facing the front, cornered across –
The human condition as a projected part and actuality in space,
as captured from behind.
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 with. Following on from there is the hc and reality in the first person. Poem: “multi-point reality” below.
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 in my mind identity of what I experience, notice 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 beyond “me and what I know” conscious of mind to knowing- feeling, and to knowing-feeling-being, and generally towards the rest of my projected reality.
I am made of various projected parts and entities that I may sense or be, including those forgotten or subconscious. My entirety is more than the sum of my parts, within a whole being who is also more than the sum of his parts. My truth is in becoming a projected part, of a whole being including his projected parts (and so my reality).
Before this, I am flawed as a part isolated from its whole, lost identified within the human condition, in what I experience, am, feel and know. The whole self is beyond me and my experience, beyond my knowing and unknowing, feeling, being and my more, my all and all that I may be and am. The whole body encompass my all including “me and my not-me”, “me and my other” in my reality, conscious of and witnessed.
The whole is more complete for having more integrated parts. From having isolated parts, the whole self is more integrated in his being in and of reality.
Ed from original 10Jan15
multi-point reality (a real reference and our self referential perspective)
perspective determine our place in our time,
captured in time, depends on perspective
that point indicated perceived
a point in reality we may identify and discuss,
you and me, many perspectives
reality is multi-point in reality
whole body be multi=point
in and of reality
Original poem 30Dec15, Last 2 lines and title brackets added
Today, more than ever it seems, we must do something different. As it is, our lives are random and we drift in our existence, with regards to life on Earth – we hold it to ransom.
We are in a funny situation. It seems, it probably is, it is as certain as it can be, that we are the cause of this impending doom. Yet we are unable to rally. No time, capacity, context or reason for guru, leadership, goal, or conviction. Beyond politically correct, transparent, and accountable, we still question mind or matter, is it the world, us, them or is it just me.
What to do?
I believe the self as a projected part, and a disassociated part at that, displaced between the self in the experience, having an experience, as the conscious, deeper being and witness, must be distinguished from the whole self who is alive and next to other wholes in and of the real world, or creation. Our reality must be recognised as a part of a whole being in reality, who creates and places or projects our reality for us to experience.
The basis of free will must rest on our self as part of our true whole. Only then can we be and play our part in reality, a whole body alive in creation and present in the present, who includes our sense of the past, here and now, future, fate and destiny, our free will and the freedom to act, all within his/her being.

I tried the reblogg button from Phil’s post t but somehow tripped it.
Here’s my comment :
I cannot place my hope solely on reason, and our “supremacism” there. I have hope in humanity, only in as much as we in our identity may transcend, not just our knowing, but even our feeling, sense of being, and deeper instinctive, intuitive and mystic, indeed our spiritual depths and heights and its sense of being, in being projected parts and being in relation with a whole being, our spirituality, with our whole self, being more than the sum of his/her parts, and with the whole body, in and of reality.
Nothing is denied of our reality. Our wildest dreams but a fragment of his/her imagination. Our deepest sense of being set against not, and others all, opposites, parallels and countenances.
Phil’s grasp for the foundation of reason’s supremacy in, beyond its language and context, a deeper intuition, mysticism and emotion, and the primacy of matter, but as basis of the conscious, has breathed a freshness of humanity through his clear and succinct tour of philosophy for me and I think for his readers.
Here’s the link to his post : http://philipstanfield.com/2015/02/01/reply-to-austin-2/comment-page-1/#comment-5377
and two paragraphs from it. And I add his reply to my unsuccessful reblogg, that has come up on my notification for that reblogged post that doesn’t seem to be there!
“Through the weight of philosophy “We are animals and our brains function holistically. Thoughts – linguistically structured and those from ‘below’ language seamlessly generate emotions which in turn feed back into thoughts. There is no such thing as a thought without an emotion or vice versa.”
“The mystical philosophy that Marx acknowledged he built his own philosophy on, his own method of knowing the world, not only has at its core another way of reasoning – intuition, mysticism’s appreciation of the importance of the emotions to thought and of the complexity in the relations between emotions and thought found expression in the very dialectics Marx positioned at the heart of materialism.”
Me and my self
are out on a limb
The conscious and my conscience
split off the core
The conscious conscious of
in each isolated pocket
I cannot bridge
but drift apart
My reach deny
what I cannot reach
My conscience rises from
the shadows of that
I cannot bridge
Across the depths
and through the core
A whole body’s reference
I am but
an isolated part
I drift apart
from my whole
I am a part
your drifting soul
How can I reach you
my nearest whole
You who encompass
my people, my world
Realms I drift in,
dream and hold
The pictures are from above :
1. “knobbly join”
2. “lined up, facing the front and cornered across under the conscious”
3. “the shape set off by the conscious and mind bodies”
4. “the conscious and its shadow with its heel or conscience, and settings”
They are parts of a group of prints from originals on “rice” paper with sumi-e ink and brush.
These paintings are part of a series, now on my evolving website http://www.gendohcr.com/#!gallery-1/c10ny
They were done with sumi-e ink and brush on Japanese calligraphy paper wet mounted onto “mulberry” paper.
