Lost Shadows

The shadows move
Lost in confusion
Lost in despair
Imagination shrouds the real
Looking back
Looking forward
Is this the Centre?

Bridie.(circa 1995)

The short piece of poetry above is the result of a night of disturbed sleep and jangled dreams, which culminated in a scribbled version, very early in the morning.
Shortly after I had completed the poem I had a cognitive experience of certainty of knowledge that “everything is”. A very sharp contrast to the content of the poem.
The poem posed a myriad of questions, while the cognition seemed in a way to offer up answers to the questions.
For some years now I have attempted to formulate these subjective experiences into an objective form that makes some sense to their existence.
I’d rather it was “easier” for me to express my views, but using the spectrum model as I do to describe our relationship to dichotomies is the best I can do, as I am not a poet, academic, scientist, metaphysician, mathematician, nor a writer.

 Everything is. No form of Space – Time – Energy or Matter is independent.  Everything that is, is interdependent and interconnected.
 In spite of the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle our sensory preceptors seem to handle those concepts very well.
All life lives within an absolute spectrum in relation to space-time-energy-matter. That spectrum knows no dichotomies. We can for instance have the spectrum pendulum swing from hot to cold but the basic absolute at the hub of the pendulum is temperature.

The statement “everything is”, is logically irrefutable as it is a simple statement of fact.
Ipso facto everything that is, is absolute.
Everything that is, is subject to the same laws of space – time – energy – matter, basic absolutes. They in fact seem to form the basic structure of all knowledge that exists.


Everything that exists, including us, occupies its own share of space precisely. No more – no less.

Everything that exists grows older in time, quite precisely, and in complete synchronicity.

Everything that exists is composed of matter in a kaleidoscopic and immeasurable number of forms.

We move on to look at the principles that seem to form the greater part of our existence.
Principles that are so evidently true that it requires no academic knowledge to understand the important part they play in our lives.
If there is a principle, then it is well established. We constantly live in a reality that is best served by the good use of the principles we find – that seems clear. Ipso facto ‘everything’ that exists in our reality has a certain principle as its source.

An elementary universal truth in any experience can become the established reality e.g., Archimedes principles. We develop principles when they are understood, and used. They then enter the commonality of life to ensure their proper establishment.
The principle of leverage throughout history has become an embedded constantly used and constantly modified principle in every sphere of our lives.
We use principles that appeal to our commonsense and reason that are true, and basically they become a universal functionality always available. They become the placeholders that form part of our consciousness.

Placeholders edict.                                                                                                                         The most compelling human interest is in knowing who ‘we are’.
Hypothetically if any individual was born in a cocoon in dark outer space, then identity would be impossible.
Our only source of recognition lies in relation to all and everything that exists, especially to other forms of life as we know it.

The debate Absolute vs. Relativism is a non sequitur given the spectrum model in relation to dichotomies. We can find an easy equivalence to both issues that makes the debate irrelevant.
Everything is, and everything that is, comes within the spectrum model. All evidence then is complementary. Every dichotomy – every paradox can then take their proper place to provide attribution.
Taking for granted any state of life (a form of sleep-walking) is an embedded challenge to constantly question the essence of each moment.
Embedded information although necessary for personal construction, provides its own limitation beyond which it is difficult to experience.
Redefining that limitation is our greatest need, and we evolve accordingly within our common structure until we can offer a suitable means to move on.

Imperative observations equates to paying attention, and in this context specifically towards absolutes and principles in language.
Their constant dependency, and replication, can act in a fashion similar to a double helix, where interdependence and interconnection must take place. Perhaps a slight deviation from professional ‘linear thinking’ advocates.Media Google double helix images Whenever an absolute or constant is established (that which is) then in conjunction with all other established absolutes and defined by each contemporary, there can be a distinct improvement in cognitive awareness of their meaning. This also establishes human experience as a relative condition, as it were in a spectrum, describing each moment in time.
That distinction permeates a side of us beyond our senses, and we may have the privilege of experiencing a new reality. The resulting process of binding absolutes to define ‘what is”.
Thus a child  is born with health, a natural construct, and can live a life with varying degrees of health, somewhere in the spectrum, with no division, or contradiction.

We experience ourselves our thoughts and feelings as something separate from the rest. A kind of optical delusion of consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us.

A conversation.

Yellow parakeet: “That’s fairly profound what Einstein’s saying”
Blue          ”        : “I think it’s all about their sense of connectivity, and interdependence, which is low in their consciousness scale. Raising consciousness – elevation – is not a contradiction to linear evolution.
Disseminating the idea of interdependence is money in the bank. Once they realise how commercially viable it will be they will embrace every corner of the globe.

Yellow      ”     :    “Why would that be”?
Blue         ”           ” Elevated consciousness paradoxically leads to a levelling out of people into productive spaces allowing them to create and innovate, and naturally relate to the common good, because the principle interdependence is recognised, and the planet will thrive with their joint industry!
The waking up process always requires the germ of an idea!

Yellow     ”         :   “Do they have that consciousness”?
Blue         ”         :   “The miracle of their life is that consciousness for them is infinite.
It’s availability lies in the ideas they have”.

Yellow     ”         :    “What about us”?
Blue         ”         :   ” Don’t be greedy mate. We can fly!”

Have a creative, happy, and vibrant New Year!
