hc.r : actuality and the “self referencing conundrum”
We’ve been taught to believe in our self. What about your whole self?
Do you think it’s natural to believe in our self!? We’re also left on our own, to find our self. Live, experience or do we make our self? Share our self? To be or to be something? With who? What are we to do? With our self? With one another? Make something of our self? One another?
Self-referencing madness, our urbanisation stuck between walls and ceilings bricked in floored space, our modern capsule of a battery pen zoo, with parks, roads, mod cons and clothes, communication and communion, commerce, super markets, and capital communal companionship.
Problem – how can our conscious experience and self be from a body thing, like the brain?! The “hard question of consciousness” Chalmers, 1996.
One should ask from what realm and dimension are we projected. Then there’s a chance, of finding a tether to the whole body of reality. From our self in projection, to whom our brain is an integral part, to who projects and allows for our scepticism, our time and space and the wits to question what is where. Find and be our self in actuality and the tether to (the whether where of and the nether there of) the whole body there, who must be there as our whole self, in a whole being, and for us being a projected part.
Our reality (our conscious experience witnessed with our self having the experience and aware of what is witnessed through the depths of projected being) is first, there as actuality and secondly, is created by the whole body. “God knows” why or how the whole body creates us and our reality. But we may know and understand that the brain-spine projects it, our reality. And we might find our place and part, in relation with our whole as projected actuality.
Projection means that there is a whole body. He/she is with form that is at the peak of vertebrate evolution on Earth. Our human species has a level brain and vertical spine left/right with front/back curvature, even hair like extensions that impregnate into the substance of the rest, and including our core structure, the CNS, is our whole being on Earth whose “other end” is the clue for us within projection to reality, the whole body of creation.
Language is our thinking. Is it our reality? In life we determine, judge and tell ourselves stories. We are determined in language and crowned by thinking.
We may wonder how and why – a brain, a body thing, creating us? Is the brain in charge? In our minds we cannot be quite sure of “who’s in charge?” Is it our language? Causality, our certainty and destiny, make our story. Our world views and context keep us circular and contained, identified within projection. , the projected actuality of our reality including our self, deeper feeling and being within our language, knowing and experiencing. As projection, we are what we are and we become more a part of the whole body. Also the whole body becomes more whole with more integrated parts.
Projection means there’s a whole being of reality, of whom our projected all is a part. The politics of this is profound. It involves our experience of one another, our self and the world we may sense and be in, as parts projected by our whole.
We only think or think we “know”. If you question “knowing” there are other certainties apart from we think. Three more certainties, in fact, apart from “I think therefore I am”, we are, we experience and there are levels of experience in space with depths, openings and endings, whereby therefore we know we must be or exist. We think, we are, we experience and there are deeper parts. There’s feeling, beyond what we know we feel, the feeling itself. And being, beyond what we know and feel of our being.
In our particular part, we can measure and reduce, be reductionist in our mind’s grasp and be grasped by what is experienced, or witness and be self-conscious or aware of what is witnessed. All that is and can be of our self are parts of our whole, who projects our individual all. “Orientate” yourself as actuality, as a part projected in space, with the whole body in and of reality.
