My history of blogging has always been non-commercial, and free to use, and its content is not disposed to attract contemporary commercial social media. The internet now has serious issues to deal with. It now has a multiple variety of International companies with Big Brother complexes seeking your personal data and misusing it. The content on these pages is not a commercial commodity.   Nor are human beings.

Each blog on this domain will now come as a short separate entity with collateral information to bring my self and any readers up to date. Archival material is available.

My sincere thanks to all the notifications I’ve received. Physically impossible for me to answer individually, but would welcome comments.

The above observation  is included in each post.

My understanding of the teachings of ancient and contemporary wisdom is not authoritative. My expressions on any of the subjects are solely based on my research, and application of concepts eventually perceived as realities.




Curiously, and paradoxically, some ‘facts’ you may have to learn to live with.

We do not own any Space.
We do not own any Time.
We do not own any Energy.
We do not own any Matter.


This information, alarming though it may be, could be the catalyst to the realisation that any egotistical embedded lifestyle needs to be exposed to allow the reality that must evidently exist.

This factual information may provide the forerunner of who we are.
It may also enlighten our minds to the condition we are in at the moment, alienated from the very properties that are our interdependent and interconnected link.
The universal hedonistic lifestyle is counter productive to the proposition that we can be
who we are
. Embedded industrialisation clouds most cultures to the unhealthy need that we must have possessions.

Does the above reality give you any pause to wish for a state of being that transforms your experience. That transformation can only come from you, and whatever consciousness level you live at.
The greatest knowledge you can ever have is your own. It transcends any of life’s embedded experience.

We are not in the process of creating something new, but of lifting a mantle to see behind a consciousness already existing. That consciousness has no egotistical property that can claim ownership.

If ever you are ever fortunate enough to have that experience, nothing external changes, only your experience of ‘what is’ becomes the reality.

A group of young blind monastery disciples, who have never seen an elephant, are given the task of describing the elephant, by touching and exploring a part of the elephant they are standing close to.
An imaginary tale, the analogy being that we cannot see the whole without the sum of its parts.



Your own  semantic template is always available for you to create, using absolutes or principles. Uniting the absolutes  Heraclitus’s “unity of opposites” has already been discussed.


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.
They 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!
