Words, self-referencing conundrum and projection : an overview of “Orientation”

Oroboros : symbolises introspection, eternal return, cyclicality especially in constantly recreating itself.

 

“Words render our representational worlds into
walls
of further representation
we w
ander around and wonder at,
within our reality.”

Beyond words, try “Experience your self”.

Impossible? Images of a dog running around after its tail, or a snake trying to swallow its own tail, may come to mind. It is as if we are a part, of an apparatus for having an experience. Like a camera that cannot turn back on itself …..

A comprehensive overview of “Orientation”. First of a series of three.

The witness

The witness.
.
Displaced behind
the void we avoid.
.
It is the displaced aspect to
the manifestant parts,
the phenomenal world and our self.
.
The witness, by which we are aware,
front, the phenomenal world
back, our self having an experience
behind, the witness.
.
.
I think it has this cyclic draw when repeated. I wonder if it comes of the “self-referencing conundrum”.

There’s a whole being of reality
who projects our reality,
through his or her CNS (Central Nervous System)
or the brain, spinal cord and nerve roots.
Presentation 004 Poem Straight up 2b
There’s no whole self, for us being a part
not within our part, for he or she is our whole;
not for us directly, to experience or relate,
yet he or she pervades our part
for he or she is our whole.

Poem Straight up JUn17 (3c)There’s no whole self, for us being a part
reflective as we front, what leaves us hollow behind;
represented reality reels forth, our inner rear,
sheared split, our outside and in
both within our whole’s projection.

There’s a whole being of reality
who projects what represents
him or her, in us as self, and
the rest of reality, in what we experience.Presentation 004 Poem Straight up 3c

 

Our whole being, beyond our reality
must, our transcendent maker, in reality be, for us to be
and to be, to be, touched by our whole; not direct
but in relation with, within projection, as a part.

Our whole being, present in the present
as separate parts, projects, our here and now
and past, our self and others, our spaces and
our worlds, extensions and our beyonds, inside and out.

Whole being, whole self, whole body are one
touched by the rest of creation and spirited at core,
the one essence of, his or her whole being and
reality in its entirety, creation, or All-Creation-God.

CNS

Central Nervous System or brain, spine and nerve roots

The human condition is a projected part of a whole being of reality, projected through the CNS in projected space.

We are turned inside out from the whole self, as if it were, sput out through nervous activity from the solid organic matter of the brain and spine.

3d-may17-aspect-mind-from-above-wblog-007-1-a.jpg

Mind’s spread from above. In our self and with what we experience, we identify with the world in front.

Thus displaced projected from our whole, we disassociate within projection into different aspects.

Further we are isolated from our whole as we identify, in our self and with what we experience, between those disassociated parts.

In our actuality, occupying space as projection, can we refer to our whole as a part.

Apart from

Apart from ” the point is”
and “there’s more to it than that”,
this and that
right/wrong good/bad true/false
and the more to ways and contexts
for determining that,
there’s more
to our conscious and witness
before our uncconscious and oneness
our deeper being and deeper sense of the worlds we seem to be in
before Nothingness and our emptiness.

Then,
but beyond our more and our all
yet encompassing them,
is our actuality,
our existence itself and in fact,
is, as projection in space,
projected by a whole being of reality,
who presides in the present.

Beyond our part,
where our sense and notion
of here and now, time and place, our being in our world and that world we seem to be in
are projected parts,
and encompassing it,
like a god both eminent and transcendent,
he or she our whole is
the creator of our all
that we may be and experience, and be in

The human condition – what I’ve worked out of it

I’ve tried to make the introduction flow, and make the points that follow more complete. I’ve added a section on Meditation, Actuality and Whole being, implying steps towards being a part of reality from identified in what we experience. Yet to present the physical references, movement and exercises.

If I can start with the Central Nervous System (CNS). You may be familiar with the idea that the brain creates, or at least is involved in creating, what we experience. Vision, for example, is processed in the brain from information received by the eyes and “projected”, for us to experience.

But what about our self, having the experience?

Many find it difficult, including scientists and philosophers, to accept the self as being made by the brain, or by anything else for that matter. It challenges our sense of autonomy and independence, of being “in control” as the definitive entity rather than being “controlled by”, and choosing to make a difference and shape our destiny. Do we need to separate the self (subject) from experience (object) and consider their origins separately? (Easy or hard question of the consciousness, Chalmers 1986.)

We can wind this back to the start and question in the first place, whether the brain creates anything at all. Strictly speaking, the activity detected in the brain with MRI scans may only be “para-phenomena” – that they coincide with (or parallel) the “events” in our reality (that we observe) but do not necessarily cause them. Is there a basis or a creator to the self and what we experience, or are we just what is?

Let me put aside these issues, about what is created or not (i.e, fundamental and irreducible in themselves) and what the CNS does or does not do, to make this point : that there is no brain without a living whole being. We can consider then our whole being to be the basis of our reality, including the self.

It means our whole creates our reality and projects it through the CNS. Projection is the role that the CNS plays in the manifestation of our reality. The whole self or being is the definitive entity of reality. We, as projection, are a part of our whole being.

Normally, we think “I’m it” and “that’s the world out there”, that we are the “definitive entity” and the world we experience is reality. We function well enough in this familiar way. Yet, unless we keep ourselves busy, occupied (with something) or diverted (away from the rest, as in occupational and diversional therapy), there’s also a sense of incompleteness or that there must be more. Certainly there’s uncertainty, and plenty of occasions and reasons for anxiety or depression.

I do not wish to deny anything of our self and what we experience, nor draw us beyond boundaries best accepted, outside or within. But a part is simply invalid, apart from it’s whole. We are displaced from our whole in being projected, and isolated from our whole as we identify, in our self and with what we experience, within projection.

Our reality is a part. All that can be of our reality, of “conscious experience and self witnessed”, is projection. Till we learn to be a part of who encompasses and permeates our all, we remain isolated in our part, lost from our whole. All directions are in vain, as we grasp at our fleeting moments in avoidance of this, our truth.

Our whole being includes both the solid body and projection, is more than their sum, and is in and of reality. In ouractuality”, the existence of our reality as projection, we can be in relation with our whole, as his or her part. And as a part of our whole being, we are also a part of reality.

_________________________________

Following is a practice, outlined with stepping stones towards our being in relation with our whole. Our notion and sense of reality is not reality. Like a yacht that must “tack” away from the wind of reality and can only zig zag towards it, we talk about and feel what reality “must be like” in an indirect way. In our projected actuality, however, we are aligned directly with our whole as a part. Then, as a projected part, we can refer to reality itself in our whole being and be affected in our relation with our whole.

In a word, the theory is projection.

From projection comes Part theory and Whole body method :
1. Part theory – in our projected actuality we may be “in relation with” our whole. We are validated in this “being in relation with” as a part is by its whole.
Winching (see below in The 5 steps to establish – 4.) : because we are, as a part, limited.
2. Whole body method – we can refer to (core), contemplate (who must be there, who must be more than the sum of his/her parts including those parts projected and solid, who sums), commune with (Nothingness – absence in projection), and connect with (through projection) our whole.

As a part of reality, our whole being is in and of reality (we are in and of projection as a part of our whole being), and spirited (as are all other whole entities in reality) with the one essence of his/her whole being and the entirety of reality (All creation).

We can introduce our whole in prayer (love and compassion, forgiveness and support, to emulate and become, depend and surrender, feel and receive, we can refer to our whole who encompass and permeate all we experience, distance, presence and process), meditation/experiencing (who has the eyes and other sense organs and projects what we experience), posture/exercise (who has a body), work/play/living (who actually is, does and lives).

Physicality (to follow). References, body movement/exercise, relationship.

The 5 steps to establish (stepping stones) :
1. Actuality – there is our actuality, our existence in fact as projection.
2. Whole being – is in and of reality. He or she creates our reality and projects it through the Central Nervous System.
3. How we are shaped or structured in our actuality goes hand in hand with what happens – isolation from our whole to integration as a part, as we “place” our self and our reality in our shaped actuality, like positioning an engineering or architectural block to initiate some structural process (robots in “Transformers”, temple booby traps in an “Indiana Jones’” adventures where the placement of a skull etc causes the whole temple to shift), to be affected by “being in relation with” our whole.
4. What to do – our part to play as a part: 1)Promote our part towards becoming more (in space as projection; see Extension of our part, below) and by approaching our actuality, so as to be “presentable”. 2)Promote the whole being in reality “physically”, from being compromised in maintaining our part in isolation, so that there is something of our whole for us to be “received” by. In our isolation we must make effort (to promote our part and our whole), but then 3) stop (because we are a limited part), to introduce the whole being beyond our self and our limited reckoning and efforts. (To “winch” our way to becoming a part from isolated – promote our part and our whole, stop, refer to our whole, repeat. Repeating is necessary while our relation with our whole establishes because as we shift in our identity, what we experience and the realms or dimension of experience, we tend to re-identify in our new situation.)
5. What it is all about – we become more a part, and our whole becomes more complete with integrating parts. Godly being of reality, spirited at core (unconditional love, God presence), encompassing our all (our self and our sense of others, near and far, and of all times and places we may sense being in or being in touch with) and our part.

Extension of our part :
Consider the world out there, your self having an experience, the witness behind, deeper being below, and the conscious above. These displaced aspects of our reality extend in different directions and in differing distances that imply space in a very direct and immediate way.

This space, including the shapes of our aspects, is actuality, our being projection and a part. Refer to from this, the actuality of our greater part, the whole self and whole being.

References for the “physical” whole being :
– CNS : level, domed and split brain; vertical spine; even nerve roots. Goes with a “complete” (with integrating parts) whole being in alignment with gravity, horizon and the zenith.
– Nothingness : the absence of the whole being and reality from our projected reality. Though as sense it is projected, Nothingness it is the whole being who encompasses and permeates our reality of conscious experience and self.
– Core : the reference for the whole being; of whom his or her solid body and organs, as well as projection are parts. Other end is the clue.
– Notion : The whole being who must be there, in and of reality. More than the sum of the parts. Alive as a part of reality, next to other whole beings. Who must be breathing, doing, alive, being of reality.

Meditation :
– focused : breath, one point, self, whole self, god, a sense, here and now, circle, mirror, light, candle light, movement, uprightness, a direction, numbers.
– mindful observance : allow for conscious experience and self (our reality) to settle as is, into their depth, in face of a transcendent witness.
Actuality :
the matter in fact of our existence as projected in space. Includes the witness and the layers of disassociation towards our subconscious, our outside and inside worlds, the existence of things and the presence of others (what and who we experience) within them (worlds or realms), the conscious, depths, “other side” and “other end”. In the immediate instance we may recognise the world out front, our self back in, the witness behind, deeper being below and the conscious above. The various directions in which these aspects of our reality occur infer space that, together with the space they themselves occupy, is our projected actuality.
Whole being :
refer, contemplate, consider, commune, connect (Whole body method), for being in relation with our whole.

“Our” phenomenal worlds, inside and out

The phenomenal world is the world we may experience and try to understand. It is loosely referred to as “the world” and is usually synonymous with the objective world. It is said to be what presents to our senses. The whole body has the eyes and other sense organs, however; we as an identity do not.

While we may think we sense things, all we actually ever do as an identity, is experience, have an experience or be the experience-er. Part of that experience is what allows us to think we sense and do things, while the whole self is the one who actually does and is. We as self, together with the phenomenal world, including our here and now, are projected (see below and else where for projection) parts of our whole self.

Since the wot and the wit (worlds out there and in there) are both there for us to experience, I suggest they are both phenomena, created by the whole self and projected or placed in space through the brain-spine (Central Nervous System), of information gathered via internal sense organs and those to the outside, other information, and their processing.

With outside and inside realms, and our cognitive or mind identity in between them, our reality is “constructed” or made-up of incomplete parts that must belong to a more comprehensive whole, who is our whole being in reality.

Reality must be more than the sum of all that we may “think we sense” of reality and the fundamentals, qualities, theories and models we can determine, deduce, derive and imagine of reality, from the phenomenal world we experience. Our phenomenal worlds are themselves based on the information that presents to the whole body’s sense organs of, what I term, the “phenomenal aspects of reality”, that the sense organs are sensitive to and register. Even if machines are used to sense things and amass information we physically cannot, such data is of aspects of reality we design machines to sense, from which we may strengthen and correct our understanding certainly, but we are still only closer to reality and only in our minds. There’s more to our reality – our further and deeper parts, and disassociated parts – and there’s our whole. He or she is beyond our reality of conscious experience and phenomena or what we may experience, yet includes our all as a part.

In fact our whole being is of reality, is touched by the rest of reality and is in reality. As a part, we may be in relation with the whole living being of reality we belong to.
