Ouroboros in a naught-shell
Finding peace within the paradox beyond everything (1) and nothing (0).
Atlantis wrote:Exactly Pot. The absolute truth can only be intuited in this instant. It is just being, non-reflected being, or non-being, which is the same. Any attempt of reflecting on this intuition or of communicating it invariably has to depart from the original intuition, which alone is divine. But it's not gone. It's always present, covered by layers and layers of conceptualization or rationalization.
That's the dilemma of political programs. They'll always deviate from their original intention. And the dogmatists who carve the truth into stone and who insist on a literal interpretation of the scriptures are the living proof that they have lost the original intuition.
Well yes, it's complex simplicity- We're THE PROCESS. Absolute objectivity doesn't exist, because human perception is enfolded in the unfolding~ing~ing~ing. Nature does not produce conclusions.
Thanks to this thread, I'm now probing this paradoxical situation... If BEING present creates an information bias, any living interpretation must be subject to the whole thing-in-itself.
As you know, objective observers must be detached from the situation, but that would seem impossible for any living incarnation of consciousness. For to be is to do, thus BEING and thinking happen simultaneously.
Potemkin wrote:"Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one must be silent - Ludwig Wittgenstein, Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus, 7.
Or in other words: "Those who know do not speak; those who speak do not know." - Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching.
Silent=listen (creative=reactive), and in order to listen, one must be absorbed by 'what IS.'
The contrast occurs when 'what is'
contemplates 'what isn't.'
Those who speak do not know, because the living interpretation of reality is always subjective. The only thing constant is change, the only completely consistent people are the dead. People are not designed to understand 'what is,'
because they're symptomatic of 'what is.' Does the knife need to cut itself? Did the fish discover water, does the bird understand aerodynamics?
All things move with the primordial consciousness, in a flash of sensation, because all things happen to be working parts of the primordial consciousness. That great enigma, the emanation of all forms, the metaphysical MONAD nomad, surfing the sea-change vortex... The reflection on the water (surface) is a relative moment or motion inside the 'happening'
or eternal present. Everything that IS will always appear to be in the middle of what ISN'T.
If we're symptomatic of 'what is'
If we're engaged in a feedback loop with 'what is'
If nothing multiplied by anything always equals nothing
If humans invent purpose
If Nature doesn't produce conclusions
and if the unknown causes the known
Are humans actually humans or a present thing-in-itself words cannot explain like anything else experiencing everything else inside an incomprehensible thing-in-itself happening in an incomprehensible eternal present of its own space & time somewhere or perhaps nowhere in the middle of its beginning and end, endless reverberation internalizing/externalizing information in formation with thoughts and extensions of thought that cannot belong to things that never were!?.
Anyway, I gotta get going, I have other hallucinations to attend to.
