This Placeholder is a constant theme throughout these blogs.
We do not own Space
We do not own Time
We do not own Energy
We do not own Matter.
Human progress can only be premised on the continuing derivative use of natural resources, and the recognition of the principles involved in any application. The intellectual process and its developmental capacity will provide the equity necessary for natural sustainability.
How do we know?
Zen koan recorded 1228:
An instant realization sees endless time.
Endless time is as one moment.
When one comprehends the endless moment
He, or she, realizes the person who is seeing it.
Simultaneous occurrence is complete complementation.
The presumption that ‘knowing’ that ‘we are’ is necessarily a matter of expression. We can ‘know’ ‘that’ which is inexpressible but may only use language in proximity attempts to explain.
Consider that the language structure, concepts and definitions now in use no longer always deliver accurate, reasonable, and responsible information. Indeed at times, they can be quite ambiguous.
The statement ‘mutual agreement’, and its physical manifestation in whatever form, is its own dialectic and will carry within it all other principles necessary for the activity to proceed. Given the Socratic assertion that if something is true then it cannot lead to false consequences no matter how circular any argument may be. Then to extrapolate the statement into extended definitions must only lead to a better understanding of the inherent truths available. This can promote recognition of the underlying essence of all things, which can become more real than our conventional understanding of Reality. There is a contemporary need to find new definitions, new paradigms to explore the concepts that govern our existence.
Where a circular argument is based on an untruth, then it cannot lead to truth. The reverse of that is that when the truth is established, it cannot be denied.
Completeness does not lie in individuality. This is an extreme form of monistic expectation. There can be no individuality unless there is one other individual. This is the true foundation of completeness.
Whenever we are privileged to experience that instantaneous essence of one other, then we know at that moment that we experience ourselves. It is complete complementation with the knowledge that it is an endless process. Many paradoxes we live with strain our conventional views of what is ‘more reasonable’.
Any true relationship experience is not based on a causality premise, but on an experience that is necessarily complementation.
“Our mind is capable of passing beyond the dividing line we have drawn for it.
Beyond the pairs of opposites of which the world consists, new insights begin”.
~Hermann Hesse (1877 – 1962)
That we have to some degree understood the condition of ‘comparative human consciousness’, and its dangers, in no way implies that a long lifetime of conditioning has been erased. Insight into the nature of reality gives us the strength to further explore its direct relation to us all, and develop a better understanding of ‘who we are’.
All principles are pure and fundamentally true, it is the human condition that holds erroneous beliefs that there are dichotomies and that principles can be divided into something they are not. The Truth is the truth is the truth.
All principles exist intact, without their pervading influence we could not exist, nor do we have the ability to negate, or delete them.
Throughout each life, at no matter what level you find us, we are endowed with innate principles that make up the human condition, and it is the human obligation to realize their potential.
We experience the reality of principles at every moment in time, it is our present inability to recognize them because of the distortion brought about by dichotomous thought processes.
Archimedes moment of recognition of the mathematics involved in the displacement of water in his bath was a recognition of a principle that has existed forever. It is only seeing the Truth for what it is. We cannot eliminate, or delete these principles no matter how much imaginary thought we impose on them. We suffer to a large degree from ‘presumed knowledge’ on almost any issue, and it can have very serious outcomes. Knowing what principles exist is a prerequisite to human development.
No one can provide a completely direct experience devoid of any interactional material – because no such experience exists. It is only through interaction with a principle that we can have direct experience (e.g., Archimedes). Anything else is delusional or based on presumed knowledge.
A principle understood.
“What we call the beginning is often the end
And to make an end is to make a beginning.
The end is where we start from…
We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time”
Everything is, and everything that is, is there to be examined, and that of necessity includes us.
‘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.)
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 92 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!
