Two poems of mereological orientation from 10Aug17

Everything, everyone, every part, every whole
– from a mereological orientation of our part, and Reality

Everything is a part of its whole.
message 01
You are a part of your whole;
I am a part of my whole.

And everything is a part of Reality,
an entirety,
the one and only whole;
it includes all wholes,
all dichotomies, inside but also outside.

For you, there is only
the rest of your whole.
Beyond your inside and outside,
your everything, your everyone, your world,
your whole, touched by the rest of Reality,
is a long long way away in all directions
through the rest of whole.

 

Reality and our part

Everything is a part of its whole.
Everything is a part of Reality.

Reality is an entirety,
the one and only whole
that includes all wholes;
inside and out
subject and object
conscious and matter
space-time and quantum
– all dichotomies, where they exist,
and our being conscious and aware of
our notion and sense of them.

Reality, Entirety, the one and only whole, All-Creation-God

message 10a

“Orientation” comes of
1) understanding parts and wholes (mereology),
2) the “actuality” of our self and our reality as a part of our whole, and
3) Reality is Entirety, the one and only whole, and All-Creation-God.

Poem Straight up JUn17 (2cc)Our reality, occupies space. As a part within a geometric piece, set in our human condition, we are held within “projected” structures. Of realms, shapes, levels and layers, all of our self and what we experience, is enmeshed in our projected reality, and manifests within it. It is projected through the CNS (Central Nervous System), by our whole: Projection is fundamental of our – “conscious self and experience witnessed” – reality.

Our whole, has physical form, and other parts including our projected part. He or she is the whole body who is in and of Reality, our whole being alive, and whole self being. As of all wholes, our whole is more than the sum of all his or her parts, including projected, in Reality.

Reality and our part”

Reality is an Entirety,
the one and only whole,
All-Creation-God.

All wholes transcend their parts,
being displaced by parts, but are
immanent in their parts,
encompassing of them all.

All-Creation-God pervades
all parts and wholes, Everything is
in
us and our all also,
by our being a part
of our
individual whole.

Of conscious experience
and self of aspects of things in reality, our reality
is a part of our whole
projected through the CNS,
by our whole.

Poem Straight up JUn17 (5)

Atman and Brahman, is the whole self of Reality and Reality, and also Nothingness and the Way. Within Emptiness, of disassociation in space, we are set linear with what we experience; and we open and extend, different ways in different directions. Our all is within brain-spine (CNS) projection, that is a part of our whole being of Reality. There is more to our reality than what we are conscious of and witness, but beyond our more, or less, our inside and out, is our whole.

But where? Is there a whole? Where is our whole?

message 01

A part displaces its whole, which needs all of its parts together, to be whole. As for a student in a class, surrounded by other students, there is no whole for the part. The “Whole” leaves the “Part” (of necessity) and the “Rest of whole”, transcendent of, or displaced from them both. We can see in Diag. 1, the “Whole” is transcendent of, is immanent in or pervades, and encompasses, the “Part” and the “Rest of whole”.

Diag. 1
“A part displaces its whole, for being a part.”

There is a mereological (study of parts and wholes) “double displacement” in being a part, from both the whole the part belongs to, and the one and only whole that is Reality, (contains all parts and wholes). We may consider this as the basis of creation and emergence, within Reality, of greater and lesser, parts and wholes; things come to be (solipsistic, quantum entangled emergence and probabilistic) displaced from Reality, and manifest as an entity (existential, relativistic or kinetic binding causality and determinism) from parts encompassed by their transcendent whole, transcendent of its parts, in Reality.

Entities of Reality are whole in matter, and of form or nature that is more than the sum of their parts. A tree, Earth, a spoon but also an atom, are all whole entities of substance  and character (nature). A part exists because of its whole, and Reality that a whole entity is of. The quantum field of sub-atomic particles of atoms, culture medium for tissues and cells outside of a living organism, context for “what” we determine of experience in our reality, and the nationality of a person competing in the Olympics, correspond to the “Rest of whole”, “Part” and the “Whole” they are associated with.

Reality is there, transcendent of its partsAs a part, we may be infused by the presence of our whole, but also Reality because our whole is of Reality. In our “part-hood”, is the immanence of Reality in everything, within our reality and beyond it.

As a part, of your whole and Reality :

“Everything of you and what you experience, is a part, of your whole.”

“Immanent in you, is Reality, in you being a part of your whole.”

Everything is a part of Reality; Reality is transcendent of, immanent in, and encompassing of Everything, in our being a part.”

A part in our mind

Reach deep
and it is in your mind,
where you speak;
in your mind
and out, with words.

Fishing line cast
to self,
before witness;
aware of what
the witness witnesses.

message 01I am reflective before you,
Whole being of Reality,
everything of me and my reality be you.
Displaced transcendent from me, in me being a part, of you
immanent, in me, in me being, your part.

The conscious and feeling,
deeper being and self,
aspects of us and the world are projected;
constructed (make-up) is our reality,
“ours” as self or identity.

images 001 labelledBe a part.
It is what we,
as self or identity, are;
a part of our whole.

Through our whole, we
are immanent of,
pervaded by the presence and truth of,
Reality, for our whole being of Reality,
Entirety, one and only whole,
All-Creation-god.

Our reality and Reality

The concept of “projection”

All that we are, as self or identity, and all that we may experience, is “projected” or placed in space through the Central Nervous System (CNS), by our whole being. The CNS is a part of our whole, as is our reality that is projected through the CNS. “Actuality” here refers to the existence in fact and in space of our reality.

Consider vision as an example of projection by our whole being. Light bouncing off real things in the real world focuses upside down inside at the back of the eyes, stimulates the receptors (cones and rods) there at the retina that converts the focused images into nerve impulses. These travel through the optic nerves and reach the brain where vision is created and placed in space for us to have the experience of vision in a 3-dimensional space.

In similar ways, information from other sense organs of the body, is put together in the CNS to form the parts of our reality to do with the outside world. Our reality includes an accurate indication of the world, with a “functional” and effective sense of our being in the world, which allows us, as an identity or self, to seemingly do things and be there.

What about the “self” ? – the subjective aspects of our realityDe carte

Science has established “what we experience” as being made by the brain. Modern philosophy has embraced this; it is a part of our general understanding and world view, that the brain is the site for what we experience. In fact, there’s a famous diagram of Descartes’ (father of modern philosophy – “I think, there for I am”), from as far back as the mid-1600’s, of how vision is generated, as I outlined above.

But what about the self? With our sense of independence, will and separation from what we experience, including others, how can we be a product of the brain, secondary to an organ? What about our consciousness, life and deeper being? Where do they fit or come from?

These are important questions in understanding “projection”, and our part.

I pre-empt my point, that there is no brain without a whole being, whole self or the whole body. We are a part of our whole, “projected” through and not by the CNS.

The self is a problem.

The self is difficult to determine. While sentences that refer to themselves or “self reference” creates  in some cases difficulties, described in philosophy as a paradox, the question “What is the self?” takes us directly to the problem of trying to refer to the actual self, that I call the “self referencing conundrum” (https://realityhc. wordpress.com/=self+referencing+ conundrum& =Search). The difficulty comes of “us”, as self or identity, being a part of the make-up or apparatus for having an experience. So that, trying to approach our self in the usual manner of determining things is impossible, like a camera trying to take a picture of its own film or digital sensor, even while we are our self !

To help proceed in examining our reality, we can make a distinction between the subjective and objective aspects of our conscious reality. Objective are those parts “easy” to explain and understand as produced by the brain (Chalmers 1986, Australian philosopher). Vision that I have mentioned and other experiences according to the senses belong to this group. Also included are the linear mechanical or computer-like functioning of the mind, such as filing, retrieving and analysing.

The subjective aspects on the other hand, include the self, consciousness, the experience itself (rather than what is experienced), deeper being, and the witness. In contrast to the “easy” and objective, Chalmers refers to the subjective aspects of our reality as the “hard aspects of conscious experience”, because it is hard to explain their existence and nature, as produced by the brain or some other thing. He suggests we consider those “hard” and subjective parts as fundamental or irreducible, so as to approach the subjective aspect differently than our linear reductive way that we usually try to grasp and understand things with our mind.i

The self as a part.

We cannot determine our self. This is because we are the self, and while we need a different setting to study or say something about our self (not how we feel or what we think but our actual self), rather than as fundamental, we can understand our conscious self as a part of our whole being. Both our self and what we experience, the subjective and the objective aspects of our reality, can then be considered as projection. Not as a product of the CNS, but of our whole. Projected through, and not by, the CNS.

In our “actuality”, our existence in fact, we occupy space as projection. And as such we may refer to our whole, and be in relation with him or her. It is a relation that, again, is not direct because our whole is beyond our reality.

images 001 labelled

Our part displaces its whole.

While to be our actual self is unfamiliar, as is to refer to our transcendent whole, as a part from within our whole, it is not impossible as referring to our self, in the direct determining way that we usually relate to the things we experience. Our reality of conscious experience and self displaces our whole, so that there is the rest of our whole that surrounds our reality. Our whole is transcendent of our self and experience, yet as a part of our whole, he or she permeates or is immanent in us.

Reality, an entirety, and All-Creation.

Furthermore, our whole is a part of Reality, an Entirety that is more than the sum of all wholes and parts, the one and only whole. I consider it All-Creation-God. In our whole being a part means we, as self or identity, are a part of Reality. However, our tendency to be identified with our self and with what we experience, isolates us in this part of our reality that also consists of a conscious that is conscious of, and a witness by which we are aware of, our self and our experience.

We must be our actual self, in the spirit of “Every thing of you and your experience, is a part of your whole” and open to the immanence of our whole and Reality, in our self.

The transcendence and immanence of the creator is a mystic and theological consideration about the nature of, and our relation with, the divine. But we, as self or identity, must “wear” this mystery; Reality and our whole is inherent in us, as one of their parts.

It is not an egotistical, or self emulating, because in our actuality is also a relation with a whole being and reality that are, as wholes, more than the sum of their parts – and we are considering our part in them.

i There is a new impetus to examine subjectivity, with the advent of AI (artificial intelligence) and its encroachment on so much of human activity with drones, un-manned vehicles, and language generation. What is it, to be human? Who or what is the true self? Is there free will? Is it a predetermined destiny where we have no choice but to enact our human programmes? In thus just reacting to our environment, what difference is there from AI?

Be a part

Mereology, the study of parts and wholes, when applied to us, infers the immanence in us of All-Creation-God.

Being a part

Being a typical part-ical, yet particular, particle :
we bounce reflexivital off each other, of a common whole.

Quantom phenomenom is being a particle :
When you notice it, “Woops!?”
Reality is another matter :
You in it, are, of it. A part
of a whole, including the noticing, you, in, are, of, and, and it.

The whole is gone, down the hole,
up the hole, side ways through or into the hole …. out? (also back, black, and singularity holes)
Where !!!! am I? A part to all this?
Must be, but separate! (with other parts and the rest)
Being the part, within a whole.

Holes connect dichotomies – me and you, inside out, conscious matter
and open their ends,
to infinity as witnessed (by which aware)
and to infinitely conscious of;
more than dichotomies then with, by witness aware of, and the conscious conscious of.

What is it? What was that?
Aware of, by witness, What it is.
Conscious of, a part.
Time, distance, parts, more, the rest, a whole, an entirety.
Reality is everything, including beyond inclusion (out) and nothing.

Words, self-referencing conundrum and projection : an overview of “Orientation”

Words 2

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.
001-w1-4jul1704072017_0003.jpg
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.
001 W1 4Jul1704072017_0009a
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.”
001-w1-4jul1704072017_00051.jpg
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.
001 W1 4Jul1704072017_0008

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?
