Sunday Matinee: Consciousness, Quantum Physics and Being Human

Bonjour wonderers!

I thought my fellow seekers of the Transcendental Other would appreciate this share. It’s nice to see the reasoning behind the primacy of matter that has dominated 500 years of reductionist thought being upended in our lifetimes. The idea of a dead, random universe should finally be laid to rest.

You know folks, you really are infinite beings. Those that have had this experience know exactly what I mean and often want nothing more than to share it with others. Seeing another trapped in the illusion is akin to seeing yourself experience turmoil. When you become aware that the aspects of self that you’ve been conditioned to identify as “I” are merely the outermost layers of the onion, you’ll realize that you’re soooo much more that the base criteria of self worth imposed by the patriarchy. Western thought dating back to Plato’s tripartition of the soul has been aware of this, and yet somehow we lost this wisdom during the “enlightenment.”

Self observation and knowledge are fundamental to working towards any higher state of consciousness. With time, you can learn to observe every emotional state of the “indweller” without becoming identified with the emotion. Depression, happiness, anger, lust, these are just fleeting experiential states of being that rise and fall like ripples on a pond. If you can learn to separate your consciousness from the feeling, you can actually observe the arising and impact of these states of mind on yourself.

If you would like to probe this further, start with something simple like laughing. Observe yourself the next time you encounter something humorous and explore the nature of the experience.  Ask yourself, “Who’s actually laughing?” Another method by which you can begin to “know thyself” is to look at a work of art or listen to a piece of music and catalogue the experience as it happens. Conduct a live account of what’s happening to your emotional state as you experience the work or composition.

I wonder what happens to this experiment when we realize the sheer folly of self definition by aspirational consumerism and all strive towards the Good? But enough rambling from me compadres, enjoy the presentation.

One love,

HJ
