Our part, whole, and Reality

We are a part. Everything we experience is a part. Our reality is “constructed” of parts including our self, what we experience, the conscious, the witness and our deeper being. Our reality in turn, is a part of our whole being.

im message 01images 001 labelledAs a part we may be in relation with our whole. However, a whole is transcendent of its parts because a part displaces its whole. It means we cannot directly experience our whole nor Reality.

We tend to identify exclusively in our self and with what we experience that are indications of aspects of things in Reality. This identification is reinforced by our linear reductive determination of what we experience within our projected reality. We are isolated from our transcendent whole in this knowing engagement within our projected reality.

Becoming a part involves approaching our self. Not a sense or idea about our self but our “actuality”, our existence in fact occupying space as projection in our projected reality. Emptiness is “collapsed”. Emptiness is the disassociation through which we are having an experience, or the space through which those various aspects of our reality for having an experience are displaced. The disassociated aspects of our reality integrate in stages, through depths back wards, breadth side ways, and levels underneath including breath and deeper being.

I call it the process of Reality – our becoming a part of our whole, who is of Reality. In approaching our actuality, and referring to our transcendent whole (which must be indirect, because of transcendence), we are touched by Reality, the one and only whole .

Our whole or Reality is not a goal to set your sights on. You may reach places, experience, find or resolves things, change in your part. In being a part however, seek beyond more, a relation with your transcendent whole.

__________________________________________

I have depicted and written about our part in the human condition, as projected from our whole through the CNS (Central nervous System). Mereology, which is the study of parts and wholes, has helped gel my work since coming across it in the middle of this year.

Mereology has eased my emphasis on projection. I can introduce our relation with our “transcendent” whole simply as a part, rather than as projection. And I can refer to Reality, the one and only whole, as transcendent of our part yet immanent in us as part of our whole.

I had already formulated Part theory and Whole body method quite some time ago now. Part theory, as the name infers, is about our being a part of our whole and our whole being a part of Reality, the one and only whole. Whole body method however, involves not only our whole but projection as the substance and form of our reality, our “actuality” as projection, from which and with which we can promote our part, our whole, and our relation with our whole.

I’d like now to present a frame work for Gendo Orientation. Having depicted and written about our part and our whole, I hope to present, both here and in my work, more of Whole body method i.e, our participation and practice in the process, of our integration as a part with our whole.

The self

Following on from the recent blog entry “Our reality and Reality”, this entry tries to again differentiate our reality from Reality, through discussing our self, as with our reality, as a part of our whole.

When we think or talk about about our self or think and talk about others, what is being referred to is the identity within the human condition, the ego that experiences the world according to the senses, and understands or tries to understand that world we experience and our self in it (the phenomenal world). Our reality, of conscious experience and self, extends from its various parts in different directions, in different ways including, deeper, further, broader, and more true.

The various aspects of our reality that make-up or “construct” our reality are displaced and differentiated from one another, and may be recognised. Some of the disassociated parts of our reality are, the conscious, self, what we experience, the experience itself, deeper being, inner and outer realms.

Between these parts of our reality, there is an association which may be described as an identification that bind parts in themselves with each other. This association through differentiation of our parts, is analogous to separate quantum particles of the same event when they are noticed to be entangled. Our self and what we experience are bound by this identification.

The conscious that is conscious of, and the witness by which we are aware, further bind the parts within our reality. The conscious can be conscious of the self, by which we are self conscious, and conscious of what we experience. We are aware of what the witness witnesses, by which we may be aware of the conscious and that we are conscious, the self and so self-aware (a knowing more than being put on the spot or spot-lighted when self-conscious), as well as what we experience. An analogy for this binding identification between parts of our reality, is the nuclear forces between sub-atomic particles of an atom that keep the atom intact.

We, as self or identity then, are one of several parts within our reality, bound to what we experience. While what we experience is an indication of things in the real world, we regard it as real and with this, we also regard our self as the definitive and only self. We, as that self, are usually functional in our reality, in that what we think we do does get done, as confirmed by our experience of doing and its result. However, our reality remains experience and a sense of self, with a world we may think is real, and a sense that allows us to think that we are in and do things in the world.

Reality is something else, other than our reality, of conscious experience and self witnessed. It is Entirety, the one and only whole, of which everything is a part, including our reality. However, we cannot be of Reality in our own right, but only as a part of our whole being. Our reality is projected through the CNS (Central Nervous System) by our whole being, who in turn is a part of Reality.

In this blog site are entries about this relation between our reality, our whole and Reality. Recently, mereology, the study of parts and wholes, has helped convey our immediate situation, namely the transcendence of Reality and our whole from our part, and the immanence of Reality in our being a part of our whole. The fundamental nature of our reality as projection, projected by our whole through the CNS, remains however, the basis to the details of our involvement in our relation with our whole, a process of integration for both our part and our whole, and our part to play in this relation and process.

Also in this blog are diagrammatic depictions of aspects of our reality, in their “actuality” as projected in space and in relation with their whole. They are meant to assist in approaching our actuality, and in introducing the process of our integration and our part to play in it.

Consider

message 01Consider your relation with your whole.

There is a whole being of Reality, of whom our reality, of conscious experience and self, is a part. As a part displaces its whole, our whole being is transcendent beyond our part, as is Reality, transcendent beyond our whole and our part.

Diag. 2 “Our reality of conscious experience and self (witnessed) as a part within our whole.”

Further more, our reality is not just separate as a part from its whole, but “projected” from our whole being, through his or her CNS (Central nervous System). Within our projected part, we are disassociated into more parts that include the conscious, what we experience, the self and deeper being. Finally, within our projected reality of disassociated parts, we identify in our self with what we experience. In this way, we are isolated from our transcendent whole within our reality.

message 02In collapsing the displacement within our reality, we may become a part. As a part we are perfused by our whole, and because our whole is of Reality, the one and only whole is immanent in us. A process of integration ensues in this relation as a part with our whole, for both the part that we are and our whole. Also in our self becoming a part, the immanence of Reality realises in all parts and wholes in Reality.

Our reality and Reality

Final edit 16 Sept 2017

The concept of “projection”

All that we are, as self or identity, and all that we may experience, our reality 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 as projection, and as a projected part of our whole. And we’ll look at vision as an example of projection, through the CNS, 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 various sense organs of the body, is put together, “through” the CNS (by our whole), to form the outside world part, of our reality. It is an accurate indication of the world, including a “functional” and effective perspective, in our sense of being in the world; we can jump, point and shoot, front up and throw. We are allowed this, our reality where, as self or identity, we seemingly do things, being there in the world, when it is our whole who is in and of Reality, and does things, including the things we think we do.

Our actual “self” and the subjective aspects of our reality.De carte

Neuroscience has established “what we experience” as taking place in the brain. It has become a part of our general understanding and world view. Yet “modern” philosophy had embraced this, as far back as the mid-1600’s, from when there’s a famous diagram of Descartes’ (father of modern philosophy – “I think, there for I am”), of how vision is generated, as outlined above, and eye hand co-ordination.

However, what about the self? How can we be a product of the brain? With our sense of independence, will, and separation from what we experience, are we made by, and secondary to, an organ? What about our consciousness, our life, others, and deeper being? Where do they fit or come from, in the scheme of things?

These are necessary questions about our self and the world that remain unanswered, because we have failed to appreciate being a part of our whole, and of Reality.

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. Sentences that refer to themselves or “self reference” create difficulties in many cases, recognised in philosophy as the “self referencing paradox”. However, the question “What is the self?”, brings the referrential difficulty directly to us, involving our actual self in a problem which I call the “self referencing conundrum” (https://realityhc. wordpress.com/=self +referencing+ conundrum& =Search). It comes of us, as the self or identity, in theapparatus for having an experience”.

Set in this make-up “for having an experience”, it is like a camera trying to take a picture of itself, when we try to experience our self in the usual direct manner of experiencing things. It is impossible to experience our self directly. We cannot bend the “apparatus for having an experience”, to experience, our “having an experience” self !

To help examine our reality, a distinction can be made between the subjective and objective ends of “having an experience”. Objective are those parts “easy” to explain and understand, as produced by the brain (Chalmers 1986, Australian philosopher). Vision (as I out-lined previously) and other experiences according to the senses, belong to this group. Also included are functions of the mind that can be broken down to linear mechanical or computer-like (computational) processes, “easily” attributed to the computer-like brain, such as determining, filing, retrieving and analysing.

The subjective aspects on the other hand, include the self, consciousness, the experience itself (different from what is experienced that is an object of experience), deeper being, and the witness. Their existence and nature are “hard” to explain, as produced by the brain or anything else. In contrast to the “easy” and objective, they have been termed the “hard aspects of conscious experience” by Chalmers. He suggests we consider the subjective aspects as fundamental or irreducible, to help approach them (subjective aspects) differently than the linear reductive way we usually try to grasp and understand things directly in our minds. The development of AI (artificial intelligence) has intensified this boundary, between our computerlike mind (easy and objective) and the conscious self (hard and subjective) i.

i Just when through modernity, we’ve gotten used to the self, we’re loosing it into the technological media. Who’s there, in charge?
T
here is a new impetus to examine subjectivity, with the developments in AI (artificial intelligence) and its encroachment on so much of human activity. And they are actively applied in reality, in drones, un-manned buses, language generation, face recognition. Their moral consequence is “us” the subject, put on the spot. 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?

The self as a part.

We cannot determine our self, when we are the self. And while we do need a different approach to our conscious self, I reject Chalmers categorisation of our subjective aspects as fundamental. Rather, we can understand our reality of conscious self and experience, 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 projection. As space, time, matter and gravity was reduced to a more fundamental space-time by Einstein, all aspects of our reality are reduced, to the fundamental of being projected parts of our whole. Not a product of the CNS, but of our whole. Projected through, and not by, the CNS.

In our “actuality”, our existence in fact as projection, we may refer to our whole and be in relation with him or her, as a part.

We cannot be direct however, in approaching our actual self, because we are set within the “apparatus for having an experience” and, in referring to our whole, because he or she is transcendent of or beyond our part.

message 01As a part within our whole, our reality displaces the whole, so that there’s just the “rest of our whole” that surrounds our reality, and 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. Our whole also, encompasses our part.

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. It is the one and only whole, I consider All-Creation-God. Our whole self being (a part) of Reality, means we, as self or identity, are also a part of Reality and immanent of it, in becoming a part of our whole.

Diag. 2 “Our reality of conscious experience and self (witnessed) as a part within our whole.”

As a part, we should at least consider our whole. Normally however, we have a strong tendency to be identified, in our self and with what we experience, which isolates us from our whole on the “apparatus for having an experience”.

To be in relation with our whole, we must first approach our “actuality”, the existence of our reality including our self as a projected part. For this we can “turn in” on our self and capture our self in the space we occupy as projection, and “tune in” to our actuality that is immanent of our whole being and Reality.

In our actuality, we can consider and introduce our whole by referring to our sense of his or her mid-line or core. Other ways to refer to our whole include :- the whole is touched by the rest of creation; is present in the present; is alive; must be there (for us to be); is transcendent of us; is in and of Reality; is Nothingness, absent from our projected reality.

Other ways to refer to our whole include :- the whole is touched by the rest of creation; is present in the present; is alive; must be there (for us to be); is transcendent of us; is in and of Reality; is Nothingness, absent from our projected reality.

Various ways may be used, to approach our actuality and refer to our whole, to initiate our relation with our whole on different stages and occasions. It is a process of integration for both our projected part and our whole, underpinned by the immanence of Reality, in everything.

I call the approach “Orientation” – in space of our actuality, and with our whole being of Reality. It establishes the fundamental nature of our reality as a projected part, and introduces our transcendent whole being of Reality as the universal basis for our existence and process. The essence of all human endeavours and practices is delivered, and Orientation may also be applied to further them.

Lastly, Orientation may be reduced to words, in a message you can tell your self, and annowncw within your reality. It indirectly refers to your self and your whole self.

Every thing, of you and your reality, is a part of your whole.”

Reality and our part

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

All wholes transcend their parts,message 01
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 self and experience,
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)

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