Orientation – the cognitive part 1

First entry for a hand-out prepared for the exhibition “Orientation – the cognitive part”

 

Split

Our reality is split
inside outside,
conscious experience
self and witness.

Contexts within which we determine,
this and that,
good/bad right/wrong true/false,
themselves separate
superficial and deep.

More or less before nothing
positive or negative either side of naught (zero)
but for us there’s the “other side”, the subconscious to our conscious,
and the unconscious beyond.

What is more and beyond
goes on and on
without our whole.

Beyond our work and play,
our lives and generations,
sense of self and others,
there is our whole
who encompass our numbers and our all.

He or she, as the case or gender may be,
enacts embodied, does and is,
and encounters the rest of creation, in reality
while creating our reality as his or her part including
our sense of being and what we get up to,
and the world that we can think we rise to and are in.

Our whole is in and of reality,
touched by the rest of creation
as an indispensable part,
permanently present in reality’s present/presence (time/space, here/now).

Our sense of independence and freedom that is our embodiment,
sense of will and destiny, our endorsement
sense of life, our enticement
our sense of others and engagement,
are parts easily split without our whole
validated as parts only by our whole.

___________________________________________

Our realities are separate from our whole in being projected through the CNS (Central Nervous System) by our creator, our whole self. We are further isolated from our whole being in being identified in our self and with what we experience.

Within projection we are displaced and disassociated between the various aspects of our reality, split between conscious experience self and witness, and further with contexts and what is determined through them, as paraphrased in the piece above. This is why our identification between these ”split” parts are exclusive of our whole and isolating.

A part is invalid without its whole.

However, we may know that we are a projected part, approach our “actuality” as projection, and be in relation with our whole. We must understand, practice, and enact this; it is our contemplation of being a part, connection through projection and communion with our maker, a godly being of creation who, in his or her being, consciousness, and substance, is inclusive of our self and all that we may be, all that we may experience, our conscious and witness.

What is the witness

The witness is not a “what”
a concept or notion
but part of the construct for
having an experience of the “what”

Asking “what is the witness?”
is like a camera
trying to turn its aperture
to capture its film

And the self as an actuality
cannot be a concept
because actuality is not a concept;
our reality is experience, notion and sense
“what” we think and sense is not an actuality

And in self referencing or
the self referencing the self
is a conundrum, the self referencing conundrum;
it is the confusion and avoidance
when approaching the necessary disassociation
for having an experience (my def’n),
it’s the agreement and conspiracy
let’s keep things to notion and sense
of “what’s what” and avoid the conundrum
that we won’t face and cannot
in “what” (concept),
“what we experience”,
and “the experience itself of what”

Right in the depths
of that conundrum
is the witness
like a void

The backdrop and reference for the experience,
what is experienced
and the self having an experience

A vacuum, disassociation itself
the displacement for the manifestation of
the self and experience,
for our reality to be and witnessed

What is experienced
is referenced and determined
by the self
in terms of the self and its
perception –
states of conscious, mind and being as well as
condition of body and its sensors
context –
background including culture, gender, race and age,
history, own past and education, experience
and expression –
mainly language, gesture, costume, prompts and props

The witness is a greater self
it references the self having and experience
as well as the experience itself

My point is to capture all
as projection is a category
beyond what and having an experience of
and its construct including the witness

CNS creates and places the world we may experience
what we experience, the experience, the self having an experience
the conscious and deeper being
the disassociation between displaced parts
and the witness to recognise these

Actuality, the self as experience,
being experiential of self,
skirts the conundrum of baby talk and babble
stop with your words and slow down for your actuality
and before long, before your Babel’s tower turns to rubble, refer to whole body

From projected actuality to reality
category but also reference for
our reality and self does belong
before rest of creation
to a whole being

Witness is a part projected
from the whole body in reality
orientation allow for this perspective and speak

The wot (world out there) and the wit (world in there)
the object of our experience “what”, the self and witness
there-ness of what’s there beyond what they are
“where” as projection in relation to whole body
to relate with the whole body there, is and as,
and in and of, reality
