“The end of consciousness polarisation”

The Constituency of Permanence.

The inevitable creation of  The Semantic Template is an exercise in recognizing the elements of permanence. The Semantic Template goes beyond knowledge and is the road to “knowing”.                                                                                                                                  Knowing is the consciousness state of being “awake”. Momentarily you are alive!
The knowing you experience connotes to who you really are. Knowing then becomes
that part of you that communicates itself to life.

That knowledge we take for granted is necessarily raised to another dimension through paying attention. Human error has consistently taken the categories for the reality and imbued them with power and energy they don’t have.
Our linear evolutionary history continually makes the same mistake. Perhaps the road we travel requires a vertical shift. We need collectively to progress new ways of thought. New ways to “be”.

Only when we recognize unity of knowing do we recognize unity of being.  It is identification of our true essence.                                                                                                   That which we really are needs expression.                                                                                   The distinction between knowledge and knowing is in the order of being conscious, or asleep. It is evidently so that all man’s history of knowledge rarely translates into knowing. Knowing which always is the necessity for being. In beingness there is no room for negation only the form of life that fulfills it.

To Have or to Be? is a 1976 book by psychoanalyst Erich Fromm, in which he differentiates between having and being.
Fromm mentions how modern society has become materialistic and prefers “having” to “being”. He mentions the great promise of unlimited happiness, freedom, material abundance, and domination of nature. These hopes reached their highs when the industrial age began. One could feel that there would be unlimited production and hence unlimited consumption. Human beings aspired to be Gods of earth, but this wasn’t really the case. The great promise failed due to the unachievable aims of life, i.e. maximum pleasure and fulfillment of every desire (radical hedonism), and the egotism, selfishness and greed of people. In the industrial age, the development of this economic system was no longer determined by the question of what is good for man, but rather of what is good for the growth of the system. So, the economic system of society served people in such a way in which only their personal interests were intended to impart. The people having unlimited needs and desires like the Roman emperors, the English and French noblemen were the people who got the most out it.

Extract from the World Perspectives Series.
Created by Ruth Nanda Ashen.

Ruth Nanda Anshen (June 14, 1900 – December 2, 2003) was an American philosopher, author and editor. She died age 103.

It is the thesis of World Perspectives that man is in the process of developing a new consciousness which, in spite of his apparent spiritual and moral captivity, can eventually lift the human race above and beyond the fear, ignorance, and isolation which beset it today. It is to this nascent consciousness, to this concept of man born out of a universe perceived through a fresh vision of reality, that World Perspectives is dedicated.

My Introduction to this Series is not of course to be construed as a prefatory essay for each individual book. These few pages simply attempt to set forth the general aim and purpose of the Series as a whole. They try to point to the principle of permanence within change and to define the essential nature of man, as presented by those scholars who have been invited to participate in this intellectual and spiritual movement.

The complete series is a comprehensive collection of the works of 42 notable writers.

And from this small extract below courtesy Susan Wyckoff published in the Jewish Women’s Archive.

It is the ideas I generate which captivate and hold the imagination of the scholars who write for me. I do not simply edit their work. I create ideas.” True. Ruth Nanda Anshen, philosopher, lecturer, and author, was an “intellectual instigator” for such writers of genius and eminent thinkers as physicist Albert Einstein, theologian Paul Tillich, philosopher Alfred North Whitehead, psychoanalyst Erich Fromm, scientist Jonas Salk, and anthropologist Margaret Mead. While illuminating the fields of education, science, literature, history, and the humanities, Anshen was self-admittedly not an expert in these fields, yet Anshen possessed the unique ability “to extrapolate an idea in relation to life.”

One of things that belongs to you that is constant in your life, is your DNA.
It is established that every single human biological base is firmly identified through our DNA.                                                                                                                                               Technically you are you.                                                                                                                   The child when borne carries your DNA markers and then begins the life process of you acquiring a personality, an identity, a language, and our so-called “consciousness”.                 Your DNA also provides you with a panoply of life time markers, Health, Strength, Intellect, Emotions, the permanence of each has its own measure in absolute terms – no dichotomy!
No matter what category level they are normally described in, they remain constant, absolute.
They are the important distinction between normal experience to living a life dictated by the contemporary condition of “having”, or being mindful of what it means “to be”.
One objective to establish our state of consciousness, our reality, is to create a new international semantic template. A universal language (without dichotomies)  whose only direction is toward unification. It’s dynamic can also only be toward its implicit and continuous validation. A superset of semantic principles will provide  new forms of creative thought.

The Semantic Template is an assemblage of all of those markers you can identify.         They are interconnected, interdependent, and any two connected like a double helix, formulate from any other one of your choice in the template, a new definition.
The important construction of the Template will be your personal task, hence the new meaning will be realized by you. It’s real value lies in the new relationship with life, and a new way of being.

Deliberations on the content quality of  the consciousness reality experienced. How much is real, how much is delusional.
Human psychology always poses the question of our inner and outer objectivity. Our awareness of our identity as a human being. We have an external consciousness life (we think), and throughout human existence the question of the sub-conscious and it’s properties have different responses. All religions, philosophies, sciences, cultures, ancient and modern. East and West, propose certain disciplines to strengthen the ability to pay attention, observe, be awake, include. The speed of modern Western civilization carries its own limitations to the need for mindfulness.
The innate  permanence of consciousness and knowing like all other absolutes have their own measurable categories. They fall into states of mind with the misguided distinction of “having consciousness” as a separate property, or “being” conscious as a permanent whole!
All experience past and present of the existence of its purity, and its effect on the one who experiences, can only be expressed by their maturity of being and its ongoing benefit toward the dimension that is its source.

The Code of Life and The Semantic Template represent the Universal language spoken in any langauge, because all languages are inexorably based on the same principles and absolutes that exist without dichotomies.

 

 

 

Footnote: To refresh the original purpose of  my earlier blogs. These shorter inserts offer the reason I started to search for any data, ancient or otherwise on human consciousness, specifically related to Alzheimer’s.
At 89 years of age (well past my used by date) it may well be that I am a candidate with a focus on my own pending dementia. If so, then the theory and the method I write about is holding it at bay. To address the health of my mind in this way could be the catalyst that retains its own functional activity.
A semantic template can be created using data on both domain pages.                                                     No definition of absolutes or principles can be ill-defined.
The are always interconnected and interdependent.
Each configuration constructed by anyone has meaning particular to them, although its value is universal. That  is why it is never personal property!

‘That men do not learn very much from the lessons of history is the most important of all the lessons of history’.
Aldous Huxley (26 July 1894 -22 November 1963.
Amen to that!
