Lost and found X-mas cheer

Re-posted from a year ago : Compare with this year’s new year entry (previous post https://realityhc.wordpress.com/2019/01/01/the-self-and-what-is-it-to-be-human/), for progress through our exponential curve – where whether we affect the weather, or not, is hard to tell from weather models, whose reports cannot see that far into the future, because the models are formed by us from within it (the weather; with stations, ballons and various probes to monitor it from within it), and sun spot  activity affects it, grossly from without it; but human activity we know affects Earth, in exponential ways and so must affect weather at least around the cities, whose air, grounds, vegetation, water, tempretures and  hazy skies we know are affected  with more people living and commuting in it, and moving to it, more and more. (exponential curve search on this blog : https://realityhc.wordpress.com/?s=exponential+curve&submit=Search)

Lead like lemmings002 e (3)
drawn into view
exponential explosion
under foot,
future not ahead.

Bouncing reflexive in apparent chaos
probable presence in hotted head
everything is of you in experience
part of your whole present in the present
forever X-mas clause of Reality.

Merry be, in cheer part-ache
Mary be for Christ’s sake
Glory be our betrothal to
our whole being of Reality
wholly ghost, transcendent of our part.

We near the end of this Rooster year. Proud cocky does not like its feathers ruffled. So much exposed, of finance, politics, globalisation and its culture, the environmental situation and our attitudes and responses. Human history and the Earth’s merge in the climactic (including what is climatic) exponential curve .

I see the showy Rooster plucked, as if ready for a X-mas dinner. At least in Sydney, it seems sombre. It was quiet in the shops, both of shoppers and X-mas decoration.

Next year is the year of the Dog. Our passage through the exponential curve must involve fundamental changes, like the crossing of the river Styx (across into the land of the dead). In at least a few cultures including the Egyptian, the Dog is said to be our guide in this.

Faithful companion by our side, lick our part and point to who is human, alive in Reality on Earth under heaven, our whole whose being is next to yours.

While the Earth sustains our life-style and our individual whole is alive, we may contemplate our part and end, but also be in relation with the one who is alive and on Earth, next to other living whole beings, and who will die.

Cock a doodle woof !

This year will be the Pig – woof woof and oink.

 

 

 

The self and “What is it to be human?”

A steady new year entry, level with horizon
into the sunrise of the Age of Aquarius;
where we looked up high
was with its dawn light that rises high
(in the early 70’s; the musical ‘Hair’ came out in 1967).

Or is it the setting sun, at the horizon
and dusk’s glow rose high.
Either way , level diaphragm with sun’s light from horizon
square against our vertical, stand through
exponential  wake (exponential curve search in this blog : https://realityhc.wordpress.com/?s=exponential+curve&submit=Search),
new, as always, beggining 002 e (3)
and another end but global.

Let spirit radiate, spill over from core of diaphragm horizontal, rather than blast ahead
and up.

 

————————-

The development of AI (artificial intelligence) has moved the boundary between the subjective and objective in our reality, objectifying so much of our mental functioning that are mechanical or computer-like, though previously thought of as cognitive, creative, communicative (ripe to be “connective”, to love, consume and demand the technologies that augment our reality but also what is augmented; we consummate in our augmentation with technology), clever, curious and human. This encroachment creates a new impetus and interest to the age old question, “What is it to be human?” (Note 2 – AI and our humanity).

Last paragraph of section 3 The subjective aspects of our reality; “Our reality and Reality” orig blgd 16Oct17, re ed June, Dec18

Expanding the bracket above:

The human condition is communicative.
We gawk and talk, are ripe to be “connective”,
to love, consume and demand the technology
that augment our reality, and what is augmented;
we consummate, in our augmentaion with technology.

Also from section 3 The subjective aspects of our reality :

We loose sight of our self like Alice
chasing the back of the Rabbit (through her tunnel),
in trying to experience, the experiencing self.
Rather than risk extinguishing our self,
we must
distinguish instead objective and subjective aspects
of our having-an-experience reality,
and not chase the subjective end of the “apparatus”
in self-referencing; like a dog
after its tail.

I will post the first three sections (to 3 The subjective aspects of our reality) of Our reality and Reality” orig blgd 16Oct17, re ed June, Dec18 next.

Right

Right

It is dangerous to be right in matters on which the established authorities are wrong”

Voltaire


And established culture considers the following true-

I am it”, the self is a definitive entity. (But there are many, different aspects and is a part of its whole).

Nothing to distinguish our reality from Reality and from story and sense.

Nothing to distinguish the world itself from the world we experience.

Nothing to distinguish our realities except in terms of perspective (senses) and points of view (story), rather than as parts of an individual whole being distinct from other wholes in and of Reality)

There is no absolute Reality. Even if there is Reality, we can never know or experience it. (Not directly, can be in relation with as part and in our actuality).

God is a matter of belief and faith. (One and only whole, Reality, Creator and Creation of causality)

Actuality Reality

Genderisation

We are genderised in our self and identity. We consider our self male or female, though we may question this and perhaps choose to change it.

While we identify in our self and our genderisation, we are in fact a part, together with all that we experience of others and the world, of our whole being. And our whole being, who is in and of Reality, is the one who is gendered.

I am hoping this quick examination of our genderisation help clarify two distinctions, between our self and our whole self, and between our reality and Reality. They are considered throughout my work which tries to establish “actuality”, our existence in fact as projection, projected through the CNS (Central Nervous System) by our whole being.

message 02.jpgProjection distinguishes and help define our reality of conscious experience and self witnessed as a projected part of our whole, our self as a projected part within our projected reality, and our whole self as who projects our reality including our self.

Reality itself or absolute Reality is what our whole self is of. Also the one and only whole, our whole being is of Reality, and through him or her we, as self or identity, together with our genderisation, are a part of Reality.

While any whole is beyond or transcendent of its parts, in our actuality, we may be in relation with our transcendent and gendered whole being of Reality as a projected part.

Inside a paper bag

A guided orientation – aspects of our reality are orientated in space, in their “actuality”.

It’s like being in a brown paper bag for us, as self or identity, within our reality of conscious experience and self witnessed*.

brown paper bag 1

as captured from above

The crinkled surface to our front is what we predominantly experience as vision. We are in a fold pushed into the paper bag from its left.

There is no boundary to our right where empty space comes in, nor to the vacuous displacement behind that is the witness. The conscious is above us and our deeper sense of being extends below both again with no boundary. These aspects or regions seem to extend indeterminably for us, but exist within the paper bag that is our reality. What is determinable is our front facing self in the fold from the left, and what we experience to the front of the bag.

Within our paper bag we cannot see or experience the whole bag or the whole self of whom our reality (our paper bag) is a part, much like not seeing the forest from the trees. However, we can be a part in our actuality* and be in relation with our whole as part, just as in being a part of a tree that part is a part of the forest.

In our actuality within our reality, a part of our whole being who in turn is a part of absolute Reality or the one and only whole.

 

*
Our reality is conscious experience and self witnessed.

Actuality is our existence in fact as a projected part, projected by our whole being through the CNS (Central Nervous System).

The witness is the displaced part to the manifestant parts of our reality that include the self and what is experienced. We are aware of what the witness witnesses, which includes the self by which we can be self aware. It occupies the vacuous space behind what we experience (front) and the experiencing self (back).

Our reality and Reality 6/6

Sixth of six parts to the article.

The theory and background to “actuality” our existence in fact as  part projection of our whole being of Reality, projected through the Central Nervous System.

7Orientation” – to the human condition and Reality, hc.R

Beyond what is presented in this background article there is more to “actuality” of our reality as part and projection, and more in referring to our whole being of Reality. I hope however to at least begin to establish our actuality as projected part. People as part in their self and identity should find interest in their actuality and relation with their whole being of Reality.

The approach is Orientation” to the human condition and Reality. Our projected actuality is orientated in space, and with our whole self and being of Reality.

Introduced is the transcendent whole. He or she (gendered) is the universal basis for our existence and processes as projected part. Universal because everyone as self or identity, has a whole they belong to as part and be in relation with.

The process is integration, for both the projected part and its whole. The transcendent living whole being is more whole with integrating rather than isolated parts. Integration for part and whole is underpinned by the immanence of Reality in all parts, through their whole being of Reality.

zzw.jpgWe change in dimension and state in our reality, but it is not for us to be the transcendent whole or reach Reality. Rather, we are to be in relation with our whole who is of Reality and in Reality touched by the rest of Reality.

The essence, substance and fields of all human endeavours and practices may said to be delivered with Orientation, from government through study (science and philosophy, all social studies), practice and performance (including work and physical tasks, all exercise).

Applied in our projected actuality as piece in its place as part of its whole, we be part of our whole being of Reality, among other whole entities who are present in the present where human endeavours are done, including the things we think we do in our projected reality, in Reality.

We as self or identity in the human condition are in a projected reality of conscious experience and self witnessed. In our actuality as projection we are part of our whole being of Reality.

Through our whole, our deepest sentiments flow. Through our transcendent whole godly being we become immanent of Reality as a projected part of our whole. Gratitude, reverence and the giving of thanks, our sacrifice or subjugation, wonderment and inner enquiry, despair and the reaching for help, struggle with vengeance or against betrayal, the gathering of power, its purpose and release, the incomplete surfaces and spaces of our projected reality.

Only through our whole because we are part, can we be free and independent as a part. Supported and opened, broken and born, lead and realised, strong and uncertain, in our whole’s encompassing embrace that reaches and infuses our reality’s breadths, depths, and extent, in our being part.

Lastly, our actuality implies a cosmology, diagrammed below with description, and to three statements we can make within our reality. They indirectly refer to our truth as part and to our transcendent whole, who “must be there” in Reality :

Message : “Everything is a part; in everything is our whole”
Everything of our self and what is experienced or sensed, is a projected part of our
whole being. In every part is the presence or essence of their whole.

Instruction : “Everything is material for referring to one’s whole”
For one’s everything being a part of one’s whole. Our reality includes positive and negative states, and all their possible purposes and processes.

Goal : “Look to a relation with one’s whole”
In all that we may become, achieve or get to, because our reality
includes all that we may be and experience, and is a part of our whole.

Poem Straight up JUn17 (5) 1.jpg

The forest cannot be seen for the trees

We cannot see the forest for the trees, but each part of the tree is a part of the forest because each tree is a part of the forest. In the same way, while we cannot see or in any other way experience our whole for other parts, we can however be a part of our whole, and through our whole being of Reality be part of greater wholes in Reality, including humanity, all existence and life on Earth, Earth, universe, and Reality itself as the one and only whole 1.

We can look at other wholes but what we see within our reality are indications of things in Reality according to our whole self, based on his or her sense organs each sensitive to a particular “aspect of Reality” such as light, sound, touch etc (see Note 1 – phenomenal world made from “aspects of Reality”). While we cannot see Reality or our whole, we can be a part of our whole within our reality, and of Reality through our whole self being of Reality. We become immanent of or permeated by it (Reality) as a part of our whole.

1Mereology is the study of parts and wholes. While as a system of logic it is complete within itself, within our reality we strain against being part in our reductionally deterministic and linearly identifying ways. Rather than help find how and where we fit or may be applied as part, instead it becomes just one of many ways to regard or see the world we experience in our reality.
However, mereology is indeed significant for us for we are a part. Our reality is attached to one end of the complete system of parts and wholes as a part, and to its other end absolute Reality as the one and only whole. It helps to establish and understand our relation with our whole and with Reality as part, to which we may be “applied” in our actuality.
