Self referencing conundrum

I write to my self, be self-referential, and bridge its conundrum, the “self referencing conundrum”.

Of our self as actuality, we exist, you and I. We exist as projected actuality, created and placed or projected by the whole body of whom we, as identity and self, are a part. Give this our daily rest and bread, and though through the generations we breed our condition, we be part of a whole, who is separate and next to other wholes in and on Earth.

We are also of Earth : Our whole body is in and of Earth, creation, reality and the present, present in the present – we, me and my self also, as projected part of.

“What to do” : 1 Projected actuality

  1. “How it is” : The human condition (hc) is projection, created and placed by the whole body, who is in and of reality
  2. “What to do” : To capture the hc as a projected actuality and relate with reality, the whole being alive in creation (Orientation in space and with the whole body)
  3. “What happens” : We in our projected reality become less isolated from and more a part of our whole self in our relation with him or her

 “What to do” goes hand in hand with “what happens”. However, we must be grounded or well versed in “how it is”, as it seems we are involved in doing and what happens – we tend to think we decide “what to do” and choose what happens to us, don’t we?

 

“I think I am.” But who thinks? Who or what is the “I”? Who does or who is doing the thinking? Who is? We think we are and do, but isn’t it the whole body who does?

It is the whole body, whole self and whole being who is in reality, who is a who and a he or a she. We, as self or identity, and our reality outside and within that we may experience, are projection, created and placed by the whole body. It is the whole self who has eyes and by whom we have our vision to look at and think we see or that we are looking. It is the whole self who has arm and legs, and by whom, and projected from his or her CNS (Central Nervous System that consists of the brain, spine and the nerve roots), we have our sense of doing and we think and can think we do. Our thoughts and thinking seem to come from beyond us, from beyond the sense and notion of our identity or self, and together with our actuality, must come from the whole self.

The whole being of whom we are a projected part, also creates and places our reality, outside and in (including our thinking, feeling, physical sense and deeper sense), for us to experience. The whole body projects both our self as the subject to what we experience, that is the object of our experience. Our reality, including our self, our deeper being, the conscious conscious of and the witness by which we are aware of our reality and make-up, they are all projected parts of the whole self.

We must relate, as a “projected actuality”, with our whole, the whole being of whom we are a part. Every other act involves us superficial of our actuality. Identified with what we experience outside or within, we are isolated in projection away from our whole.

We cannot see our self. The images of our whole or of the whole body in the screen or the mirror (reflected image), our vision and seeing of them within projection, help form our notion and sense of our self. However, what we may experience of our self remain with what we experience of our worlds inside and out – they, what we experience, are cast within our contexts, our world views and causal order, our sense and notion of “how it is” and “what happens”. What we may experience of our worlds and our self,fall short of actuality, occupying space as projected parts of a solid whole being in reality.

Try approaching your actual self. It cannot happen in the usual way that we may be direct with our sense and notion of our self, others and things. Remember, in anything we think we do, we think we do what the whole body may be doing in reality. Trying to approach the self is an inner effort within our projected reality. The difficulty stems from our hold on what we experience. The conundrum or paradox in statements that refer to the statement itself or self referencing statements, has been recognised and established in classic Greek philosophy. (Self reference google search; Epimenides paradox  wikipedia) However, in regarding the self as an actuality is what I have termed the “self referencing conundrum” and I define it as “the difficulty and repulsion to approaching the actuality of our self or identity, as if to maintain the necessary displacement for having an experience between the identity having the experience and what is experienced”.

It means that in anything we think we experience and think we do, we are reinforced in our reality, within projection, unless we can include our actuality and refer beyond our reality of having an experience. And, because the whole body projects our reality and includes our actuality but also the witness and the conscious, I propose we refer, contemplate and relate with our whole. But how?

It is already on my wix web site in a PDF, on page 8 of Orientation ii

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
