We are an identity, identified in our self with what we experience. We exist within our reality which includes other components or parts. The “wot” ( world out there) is one of those parts that make up our reality. It seems real, objective, tangible and to be there before we notice it. We may function in it or with it, think we see and touch it, but it is not reality.
It, the wot (world out there), is the phenomenal world , the world that we may experience and understand or at least try to (pretend to?). We think we sense it, and indeed the phenomenal world is defined in terms of what appears to our “physical senses”. However, I make this point I hope to establish with “Orientation”. All that we actually do, as an identity in our reality, is experience, have an experience and be the experience-er.
While we may think we sense, it is the whole self who is in and of reality, and has the eyes and other sense organs. Information, from those “physical” sense organs of the real world and the whole body, is processed through the CNS (Central Nervous System or the brain and spine), to create virtual versions of them that are our self, the world we may experience and our sense of being in that world. They are projected in a certain distribution or shape which occupy space in particular places in relation with the whole self. In such a way our whole being creates and projects our reality through his or her CNS and does everything that we think we do, including all actions, thinking, dreaming and sensing. We in our self are placed to exist in our reality and provided with an experience of what lets us think we do, in our reality.
Consider this of yourself. You, in your self, are placed to exist in your reality and provided with an experience of what lets you think you do, in your reality. I hope it helps to point out who does creates you and your reality – your whole self of reality who, in reality, is among other wholes.
With “orientation”, clear distinctions can be made between our projected reality and reality, and our self and whole self. “Orientation” also allows for us to separate our phenomenal world from what may be termed the “phenomenal aspects of reality”, to which the sense organs of our whole self are sensitive and their sensing of which is used to form the phenomenal world.
There is more than our self and the world we can experience – the rest of our reality, the whole body of reality and reality that is more than the sum of the fundamentals we derive of reality from our phenomenal world. Reality and the whole self may be considered to be of the noumenal realm, one sense of which is the basis for our phenomenal reality. Also, when we can recognise being bound within our projected reality, we might better understand our self and what we are doing, including our endeavours to reach what we may “think” is reality, perfection or others. More still, we may include the rest of our reality in their actuality as projection, and as parts of our whole, be in relation with the whole being of reality. With integrating parts our whole is more complete.
