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

Word on words, and the self referencing conundrum.

Words themselves are representative, they represent something in our minds. We can talk about the being, happening and doing of things, because that’s what our nouns, adjectives and verbs refer to. Words render our world into representational walls, we wonder around and wonder at, within our reality.

It is Plato’s cave,
of the Greek philosopher who’s Forms and Ideas were said to be the basis to what we observe in “our” reality. We, as self or identity, think and talk (with words) about the shadows on the walls of his cave. The shadows themselves are representations of things. Our words then, are representative of representations.

Rather than refer to the thing they represent, words that refer to themselves or “self-reference” can be a problem, in our mind. “This statement is false” is the classic example of the self-referential paradox in a sentence. It carries a contradiction, as most examples usually do, where it can never be true because the sentence says it “is false” which keeps us bound to the sentence, self referencing, rather than from the sentence, referring beyond it.

Self-referencing alone, even without a perplexing contradiction, can still give the same paradox. For example, “This refers to the word, this” or “to you, reading or to me typing, these words”. Left unresolved is, our having engaged with words in the first place. It exposes the expectation that, in communicating and expressing, a sentence should refer to things other than, what is in the sentence. This expectation may vary with cultures, languages and situation, but it may be universal of putting things to words that, sentences should refer to what their words represent.

All our stories can be seen to be circular and self referential : Before paradox, we reflect, what is represented in our reality. Of conscious experience, as self or identity, we are held between incomplete bubbles. Gingerly balanced our inner and outer worlds, their shells we straddle, mush. In dribs and drabs we dabble and dribble, learn to babble and spit out words, and live in them words. A loose twist and loop noose our circularity as one of our many, of many more.”

Something of the very nature of our reality is indicated by the paradox of self-referential sentences. The paradox itself penetrates beyond words in our reality, towards our self, if we let it. But sometimes it just hits us. Comedy shares something of this, 3-dimensional, self approaching and exposing complexity and substance, chaos and uncertainty.

Some how, we are waiting for more or what’s next, to be woken up to our rest; to more of us, as self or identity, and more of our reality we are reminded from our left field, behind, beyond, within or underneath it all.


Compared to the paradox from words in a sentence, to reference or refer to our self is, a deeper and more immediate concern, for us, aself referencing conundrum” (https://realityhc.wordpress), if I may coin a phrase.

Try for your self, “Experience your self”.

Impossible? Images of a dog running around after its tail, or a snake trying to swallow its own tail, may apply.

We are a part, of an apparatus for having an experience.

Like a camera that cannot turn back on itself to take a picture of itself, and like its film, that in capturing an image, is “reflective” of what is directly in front of the focusing lens, it seems we cannot experience our self – only of “other than self” can we experience or directly reflect or be reflective with.

No problem with entertaining a notion or concept of the self, and experiencing a sense of self. But with our “actual” self however, there’s an inherent resistance to approaching and experiencing our self in the “usual” way we consider “direct”.

001 W1 4Jul1704072017_0009abWe cannot see our self, only others. From where we face the world we may see, and determine, we extend uncertainty all the way, beyond context, down to the emptiness of our alone or existential in depths, or being the one centre of a vague universe at our beginning or solipsistic end. What is self? What is anything? Where am I?

the human condition 0027 31May – fundamental and universal

realityhc

the human condition and reality
– fundamental and universal

Universal and fundamental is projection – by our whole being, through the CNS

The human condition and reality, hc.r
Gendo, Orientation

Fundamental and universal, of us and our reality, is projection – our projected “actuality” (in projected space), and our “whole being” of reality who projects us (through his or her CNS or Central Nervous System).
Projection means there’s who projects.
“Behind all this”, our reality, is our whole being, whose CNS is an integral part of him or her.
How can we be in relation with our whole? Why should we care?

hc.r
In our whole, in his or her projected part,
we have our freedom and place
our existential self and social identity
exhaustion and sleep, vitality and life
our human being-ness and animal nature
the child within us and the regressive forms
our sense of the worlds out-side and within,
of others, places and time,
and of self.

The sub-conscious other-side and
deeper conscious being below,
our conscious and
our sense of boundary and beyond,
they extend
different ways
in different directions.

Our all
and all that we may be,
is a part of our whole.

How may we be,
as part of this whole being?

the human condition 0026 – when I sit with others

Q001 Cursor May17 29052017 003

When I sit with others, and regard my whole, I manifest thus.

A head in the “cone of silence”,
where I see and understand
what’s and who’s in front of me,
myself unseen and not understood.
Q001 Cursor May17 29052017 004

Core’s the reference,
for our part
other-end’s the clue to our whole being of reality.

From where we’re open above
and floating below,
the other-side and outer-side
to our middle centred right,
connect through other-end
and around.

Q001 Cursor May17 29052017 005The “cone of silence”

Normally between talking heads, gawkin’ and talkin’, or between the TV screen and you.

Either party sees and understand what’s said and seen in front, the other person and the conversation, while not seeing nor understanding the self behind the “cone”.

Vortex-ed behind, centred right, at the base of the skull.
