Me

Intuitively, when I was younger, I knew there was something “more” . . . to be a good kid, not enough.

The “more” is the real issue . . . and its not just the nasty. I had to find some real paths here, not just play the game . . . all you lost souls!

That sounds fairly safe, as Maslow explained, we are in a position of growth, development, Self-actualization. The issues begin at the more cognitive levels, how we interpret things, define ourselves and world . . . like the “ego idea,” which I first heard of in Psychology 1000.


My path began with Colin Wilson, where I got my “core” foundations . . . “intentionality.”


Theory is one thing, and what people say is another; but this is based on actual functioning and experiences . . . “core functioning.” Focused intent brings up an increased sense of reality! Its a feeling of strength, knowing one is being one’s true self, in the place of being grounded. There’s ways of evolution, growth, positivity possible here. There’s reasons for it, and there is much to learn. I had experiences that kept me going.

I started with the idea of we are a part of the whole; then I tried to be more functional. I realized we are actually interconnected, with intentionality, to the world, reality. Then we are in an intermediate zone here, with a greater reality, in which we can do our work . . . not just either Evil or Holy. Middle Earth. There are a lot of systems out there, I discovered, that have this.

So, you could see I’ve changed my overall generic context. Rather than the little misfit, with the negative around . . . its “all crazy,” to the Life World within the Greater World. The Age of Separateness, as the aboriginals put it, has put us there . . . like in Freudianism, Christianity, as far as the Western World goes. Pretty nasty. (Of course, when I’m speaking of Christianity, I’m thinking of the Roman interpretation. They weren’t Gnostic like the original ones. I read what they said . . . “How could we be “here” and “there:” its impossible!” They truly felt they were separate. Not that high up the spiritual ladder as they claim. I speak of “mutuality” . . . “a mutual arising of Self and Existence.” Physics has “Fields” these days.)

This orientation, aligning oneself to it, one’s life starts making changes. Its like opening up to the multifaceted nature of oneself and the universe. Its not just the shadow; but it means becoming activated in a different way . . . “the other” . . . the more intrinsic nature of oneself, in action.

Its that “Special World,” interconnected, one with the Universe . . . not just with Earth down here with Heaven above. We could move from the Freudian, Christian dualities, into something Joseph Campbell would speak about . . . the Hero’s Journey! Its like we all came down to Earth, though, then had to reconnect with the whole. Christ, representative of our Hero’s Quest.


Therefore, who we are, or think we are, isn’t just an idea, or that description: there’s that “other part,” the “hidden one” as some would say, our intrinsic nature that is one with the universe and is in touch with all those multifaceted realities. Its one’s self that can kick in and take one beyond those apparent views. The “Master.”


With this multifaceted possibility, I began being careful about getting too involved with something like the internalization/externalization issue. I thought I had more potentialities than this battle. So, if you saw a difference in me, I was in a state of “consideration.” There are various ways to deal with and orientate oneself within all these issues, evolving perspectives. I am following the various “Intent Pathways” this time.

Eventually, I realized, as far as this “construct” goes . . . I was understanding the “form” aspect, and one’s independence here . . . but that it was also integrated and interactive within the ground. I was then able to make that big leap, and things were happening. “One’s Meaning” is imbedded within larger interactive meanings . . . I got the Life World within the Greater World from this. I realized its why we dream, being within a larger potential, evolutionary position, impinging upon us. We are that ultimately. A personal change of context occurred: I was able to escape from that generic thing people were doing, go past that colloquial psychoanalysis, even the typical ideas of the unconscious which was holding me back, and get into motion with truly intrinsic meanings, ways!

Then recently, always finding something, along comes Ouspensky and Gurdjieff . . . those talks about the four bodies, three forces. Lee would be orientated within the feeling/desire one, working on her emotions, and Faith. Of course, I would be in that fourth one, with I, consciousness, and Will. This one does it all in one “movement,” a body, feeling, and understanding all there. It all seemed so synchronous, with his talk of external influences from one side, to gathering it all up from the other way . . . the Fourth Way. His talk of the various interrelations and issues was moving me along here: where I was was where he started elucidating more! But that was 100 years ago!

Seeing the future? Reincarnation?


Our Life World within the Greater World . . .

Like moving from the first or second person, to the third . . . the third gate (someone knew) . . . in which one could enter someone else’s dream, or be somewhere else . . . the arena of old sorcerer’s powers and assemblage points?

For me, I took steps forward here when I realized we are “Selves entwined within the universe in an interactive field of meaning and knowledge” It freed me up, got me within this larger context of meaning, and made sense of what is going on. This construct, personal meaning, is imbedded within something larger . . . why we dream, move along . . . like the Mandala, or the Gestalt.

But, there’s also a newer foundation here . . . The Fourth Way . . . dealing with the “objective” . . . “knowledge and being” . . . (Whoa!, hey?) The new sorcerers?

“In trying to understand this it must be remembered at the same time that people cannot observe phenomena as manifestations of three forces because we cannot observe the objective world in our subjective states of consciousness. And in the subjectively observed phenomenal world we see in phenomena only the manifestation of one or two forces. If we could see the manifestation of three forces in every action, we should then see the world as it is (things in themselves).”

Ouspensky, P. D.. In Search of the Miraculous: Complete with Diagrams . Toward Publishing. Kindle Edition.

“The third force is a property of the real world. The subjective or phenomenal world of our observation is only relatively real, at any rate it is not complete.”

Ouspensky, P. D.. In Search of the Miraculous: Complete with Diagrams . Toward Publishing. Kindle Edition.


“Not one of you has noticed the most important thing that I have pointed out to you,” he said. “That is to say, not one of you has noticed that you do not remember yourselves.” (He gave particular emphasis to these words.) “You do not feel yourselves; you are not conscious of yourselves. With you, ‘it observes’ just as ‘it speaks’, ‘it thinks’, ‘it laughs’. You do not feel: I observe, I notice, I see. Everything still ‘is noticed’, ‘is seen’. … In order really to observe oneself one must first of all remember oneself”

Ouspensky, P. D.. In Search of the Miraculous: Complete with Diagrams . Toward Publishing. Kindle Edition.

In that internalization/externalization issue, I was asking; “What about me?” So, one can consider one’s “intrinsic nature,” as I put it, or Gurdjieff’s objective stance, as he explained it.


The Dream Body

There’s daily down to Earth happening things contributing to our experience . . .

But we are also abstracted beings . . . there’s themes, understandings, evolving directions, etc.

And we are “networked” . . . together and within even greater realities . . . many sources entering the picture.

Moving from the concrete levels into the multifaceted.

That “Special World,” interconnected, one with the Universe . . . not just with Earth down here with Heaven above. We could move from the Freudian, Christian dualities, into something Joseph Campbell would speak about . . . the Hero’s journey!

The Life World within the Greater World.


“In the terminology of certain Eastern teachings the first body is the ‘carriage’ (body), the second body is the ‘horse’ (feelings, desires), the third the ‘driver’ (mind), and the fourth the ‘master’ (I, consciousness, will). “Such comparisons and parallels may be found in most systems and teachings which recognize something more in man than the physical body. But almost all these teachings, while repeating in a more or less familiar form the definitions and divisions of the ancient teaching, have forgotten or omitted its most important feature, which is: that man is not born with the finer bodies, and that they can only be artificially cultivated in him provided favorable conditions both internal and external are present.”

Ouspensky, P. D.. In Search of the Miraculous: Complete with Diagrams . Toward Publishing. Kindle Edition.

When we become socialized, learn from those who know, developmental?

Ouspensky, P. D.. In Search of the Miraculous: Complete with Diagrams . Toward Publishing. Kindle Edition.

And the esoteric, not Sunday school . . .

“The first is the physical body, in Christian terminology the ‘carnal’ body; the second, in Christian terminology, is the ‘natural’ body; the third is the ‘spiritual’ body; and the fourth, in the terminology of esoteric Christianity, is the ‘divine’ body.”

Ouspensky, P. D.. In Search of the Miraculous: Complete with Diagrams . Toward Publishing. Kindle Edition.

“In the second case, that is, in relation to the functions of the four bodies, the automatism of the physical body depends upon the influences of the other bodies. Instead of the discordant and often contradictory activity of different desires, there is one single I, whole, indivisible, and permanent; there is individuality, dominating the physical body and its desires and able to overcome both its reluctance and its resistance. Instead of the mechanical process of thinking there is consciousness. And there is will, that is, a power, not merely composed of various often contradictory desires belonging to different “I’s”, but issuing from consciousness and governed by individuality or a single and permanent I. Only such a will can be called “free”, for it is independent of accident and cannot be altered or directed from without.”

Ouspensky, P. D.. In Search of the Miraculous: Complete with Diagrams . Toward Publishing. Kindle Edition.

Ahh, I was moving along here: I was speaking of externalization, and those more enhanced intrinsic moves. Smarter, lol. Intelligence . . . meaning? Now that’s science, theory and observation.

That fourth body, with I, consciousness, Will, is like my intent and figure/ground. G’s talks with Ouspensky are proving quite helpful, since it fits into my current stage, providing insights into the further ways and relationships here, moving it further along.


The dream body . . .

The hand . . . it was like I was following my outstretched hand, like it was adding direction, and energy, into another room. Something like Tai Chi, or something Lee would do.

There was an episode in which there was a blossoming giant dark hand emerging, that was holding between its thumb and finger, something that looked like one of those Tic Tak vehicles.

Sleeping on my side, with the weight off my innards . . . began dreaming of moving in such a way, with my extended arms leading the way, with a pleasant feeling . . . must need that Tai Chi.

In a related type of vision, I saw this reddish octopus, with many suckered arms, being out in the open, agitated. I entered the scene, offering help, by moving it into a light blue translucent oblong covering, with some speckled lights in a row, which it could float around in. “Here let me help you, do you like this?”

 

And identity . . .

Doing what some women think is up, or what I could do (or why there was a past change) . . . but I came back examining within an even larger perspective, even watching one of them strong good ones doing work. This larger identity . . . I gave it the nomenclature . . .”The Mysterion,” for it was beyond all that, mysterious, and able to take it all in!


 

Synchronicities

  • Image synchronicities . . .

I had this dream vision of a streaming flowing ribbon. Then there was another of light being reflected in the water. The later was an opening scene in the You Tube series, Deepsea Oddities, and both scenes which I later viewed on TV. There was one creature presented, with a long and flowing cloak, the “Blanket Octopus.”

  • The book . . . “In Search of the Miraculous”

That G metaphor . . . got me thinking. You could see Moore trying to get this in here, and where the idea of the metaphor came from.

Two levels of people and art . . . one subjective, another that is objective, like “mathematics,” precise directions and reactions. (He’s comparing it to science?)

Like the weaving analogy . . . one fiber grounded in the high, the other in a life texture

Like the apparent abstract creation, and then the focused . . . objective, but not in the rational sense.


Then there was the talk of G saying we need good foundations for the”crystallization” of something further, a newer self . . .

Dreamed that first of course. So, who’s doing the dreaming, guidance? It was like that uptown road renovation thing, where there was the discovery of the old tracks, and then the perfectly redone finishing.


G spoke of a positive/negative situation for adding some motivation for change . . . ?

There also was the talk of a past life in a dream scene . . . makes me wonder why I was put in with certain people, ways . . . why I had a conflicted behavior, for I also knew of something better.


The Construct

This construct, abstraction, one’s meaning . . .

This situation of ours, associated imagery . . . being abstract, there are those expected intuitions, ideas, symbols.

But it is also a form, the Life World within the Greater World . . . activations . . . 

How the poem is written, interpreted, the jig saw puzzle is made, the experience engendered.


Changing realities, paradigms . . . complex situations.

Mysteries . . . chaos magic . . . 


Ego . . . that aspect of oneself that resists change, hence the Shadow. When one realizes that we are a part of the whole, there is the chance for extensive evolutions, interconnections.

There are changing functions and orientations here, that allow one to experience oneself what this means . . . like from subject/object, to figure/ground. Intent.

There is that intrinsic aspect of self that is in touch with all these core moves . . . one has to be true to oneself! There is a truer reality beyond these appearances, the apparent.

“But the question remains: what leads us onwards and upwards? Goethe says it’s the ‘eternal feminine’; for Wilson and Husserl it is the transcendental ego; for Madame Blavatsky it is the interplay between noumena and phenomena; and in Watson’s Miracle Visitors it is the ‘inaccessibilities’ that tease out our greatest mental leaps. In a sense they’re all aspects of each other, bleeding over seamlessly into one another’s territory; eternally presenting a sort of meta-logical game that challenges our presumptions every time we become too complacent.”

Moore, David J.. Evolutionary Metaphors (p. 79). John Hunt Publishing. Kindle Edition.


“There is the sense that there are meanings that animate the deepest substratum of existence, and that, in some odd way, these meanings are the structural blueprints not only of matter and the physical and natural world, but also the structuring forces that underlie experience as well as existence in its interior and mental form. The mind, then, is just as much a part of this reality of objective meanings as it is capable of unveiling or revealing them. In fact, it is essentially revealing deeper layers of its connection to reality itself, and, as a result, there is the sense of unity consciousness and an overcoming of the Sartrean kind of existential alienation. More than this is the direct access to information or unusual powers . . . “

Moore, David J.. Evolutionary Metaphors (p. 146). John Hunt Publishing. Kindle Edition.

“ . . . for particularly in his later work, Jung ‘began to move toward a conception of archetypes as autonomous patterns of meaning that appear to structure and inhere in both psyche and matter’ and thereby ‘dissolving the modern subject-object dichotomy’ (2001: 425).”

Moore, David J.. Evolutionary Metaphors (p. 136). John Hunt Publishing. Kindle Edition.


This journey may be short, within the internal/external context only, like the snake biting its own tail, the Ouroboros. The assemblage point. One doesn’t change much. Like leaving one’s home, then returning. They knew that.

Or, one can move into that greater context, that “intrinsic self entwined within that interactive field of meaning and knowledge.” All changes here, including oneself, evolves. Extended meanings. Infinity.

I needed a way to better approach those extended contexts.


There can be unique, sophisticated presentations here, from that Greater reality, with enhanced meanings, that can circumvent these lowly views of ours . . . an abstraction can be much more, as suspected, and it can be lived!

I was doing fine here.

With the extended context of the life world within the greater world, I noticed that situations or imagery that would give the ego problems, one can sneak around and through them, circumambulate, not restricted to the ordinary perspective.

I saw myself standing there, hand up to face, considering the issue. Self-referential . . . abstract and perceptual.


 

Interactive Meanings

So, we move from the “neutral state,” “what is is,” “the apparent,” and we become more active. We realize the “internalization” is there; but it is more than just an idea; its a form. Rationality only takes it so far. We are “selves entwined within an interactive field of meaning and knowledge.”

Form and intent . . . “where one is at.”

The “Fourth Way” . . .


The functionality here moves along in different ways.

It was when I was able to move on from that internalization/externalization dialectic, which was holding me back within some weird persona, low level of interpretation, into that interactive sense of a field of meaning and knowledge, that I made the big leap. Extensive. Real meanings, true identity . . . Wow!

This larger, potential, multifaceted context . . . this larger consciousness, per se . . .


 

The science-fiction writer Philip K. Dick has also mentioned that when he saw the world with both hemispheres in synchrony he experienced an entirely different world. A world, we could say, experienced synchronistically rather than causally. To understand this phenomenon to its greatest extent, we need to begin to tilt our ontological axis so that the two worlds––perceptual and conceptual––converge.

Moore, David J.. Evolutionary Metaphors (p. 107). John Hunt Publishing. Kindle Edition.


 

Extensions and excursions . . . multiple preliminaries of the next . . .

Spontaneous foci, of our intrinsic nature, of phenomena, or of a new self and space . . . doing something smarter . . .

Camouflaged like an octopus at the bottom of the sea . . . or encountering full fledged energetic presences . . .


 

One sees for oneself the evolution between where one is at within the Life Worlds and the Greater Worlds, like a mechanic figuring out how to get things going.


 

So, initially, I discerned I could get beyond one’s filters, and focus the world. This was an enhancement: “A mutual arising of Self and Existence,” energies interconnecting. This was pretty much a down to earth thing; but lately, I seen that this enhancement can occur within our multifaceted nature. I had this image of a gnarled frame of iron, with mountains behind . . . “narrow chinks of our cavern?” . . . but when I applied the focus, I saw an image of a young boy.

“Within an Iron thing” . . . Vusamazulu Credo Mutwa . . .

If one was lucky enough, the right orientation and the right beings, one might be put into a golden container, and fly around the universe. (Or around them, observing.)

This intrinsic level is also smarter: I had an image of this monstrous metal robot. As I examined it, I noted that there was a round indentation on the top of its head in which a circular attachment could be inserted. It said the head was the important thing. Next, I gathered up all these attachments in my arms, thinking I had to get rid of them, and threw them down a cliff to the underlying ground. I jumped down to that area, feeling the earth at my feet, and there was an upbeat a lighted energy. There was a move from mechanical functioning to living energy.

Cylindrical head attachment thing . . . Star Trek Beyond . . .


 

Therefore, who we are, or think we are, isn’t just an idea, or that description: there’s that “other part,” the hidden one as some would say, our intrinsic nature that is one with the universe and is in touch with all those multifaceted realities. Its one’s self that can kick in and take one beyond those apparent views. The “Master.”

Sometimes one can be stuck though, or agitated by the descriptions, ego: but the true self can enter the picture and restore the way, one’s better view. Ultimately, one is still in motion, flexible. I understand that now.

There are a variety of self-referential perspectives possible here, of oneself. It was like I was holding my phone, and got this image of some dark presence giving me that sneaky recognition; then I slipped into this light room with this female presence that was semi-formless. Dealing with a situation with an alternative perspective, more sophisticated, getting around the bend.

It was like I saw an explosion, with deaths, thirteen, and an alien type observing . . . that movie? Strangely enough, I may have needed to see this, to learn and understand the issue, to discern the difference.

I was considering this ego issue, then had an image of this big column, in which there was an open door, wherein this person got shut inside.


 

Activations

This orientation, aligning oneself to it, one’s life starts making changes.

Its like opening up to the multifaceted nature of oneself and the universe. Its not just the shadow; but it means becoming activated in a different way, “the other” . . . the more intrinsic nature of oneself, in action.


Accordingly, I was able to see that past location where I lived come up in an enhanced perspective . . . how to make the tough past look better. Likewise, when I saw that sleeping youthful figure, after the dirty chair seat. One can reverse the difficult, with these enhanced orientations.

A recapitulation? I did start back then there.


This evolutionary metaphor . . . like Joseph Campbell’s hero’s quest in which one leaves the ordinary world and enters and moves through the special world, with its unique elements, directions, guidance.

“ . . . instead of being adrift in a meaningless universe, we instead inhabit a reality with an emergent evolutionary context — a part of which our very consciousness is a significant contribution to its implicit and explicit developments.”

Moore, David J.. Evolutionary Metaphors (p. 33). John Hunt Publishing. Kindle Edition.

This is like the context of living in the Life World within the Greater Worlds. It sounds like a metaphor; but it is also literal when one considers it as intent and the figure/ground. These presentations are literal, metaphorical, and consciously activated, which is the key. Interactive meaning . . . its not just the down to earth, colloquial, generic symbols and interpretations.

There is this larger multifaceted meaning, not just a singular distinct notion, like the multiple layers of a poem, or the many parts of the jigsaw puzzle contributing to the greater picture . . . so, why its metaphorical. A mandala. Could be the shape of atoms and matter with the meaning and conscious elements added in, not just the physical universe only.


The shape, form, of one’s Life World, entwined within the Greater Worlds. Something that can be investigated. Why? Because its more enhanced, more meaningful. We need it. Improved functionality, and truer identity. One can live a better life. That’s what I needed in the past.


Enhanced Realities

“There are things known and there are things unknown, and in between are the doors of perception.” ― Aldous Huxley

“If the doors of perception were cleansed every thing would appear to man as it is, Infinite. For man has closed himself up, till he sees all things thro’ narrow chinks of his cavern.” ― William Blake

You hear a lot of, like, “I don’t understand.” People get trapped within this given framework . . . “in their head.” You could get someone like Alan Watts say, when you get out of your head and see the world; “It Exists!” “Existence.” Its a pristine world, alive, energetic, colorful . . . clarity! — Gerry Dubinski


“In a sense the phenomena can be ‘read’ as if it were an unfolding story, authored by someone or some ‘thing’. There is also the idea that we are self-authoring the phenomena, in some deep sense, and deliberately stretching the limits of our unhealthily entrenched—or detached—views that cause a stagnation in some hidden and neglected aspect of our being.”

Moore, David J.. Evolutionary Metaphors (p. 24). John Hunt Publishing. Kindle Edition.

What is truth, authenticity?


In this self-created world, the core aspect of our nature reaches out for more, for enhanced expression and reality. Being human, there are many motivations and interests moving us along in various ways . . . ultimately, conscious use and guidance comes in, providing directions.

Intentionality.


Its moving it a bit past the typical psychology; but it appears to be a “true” motivation. (You get that?) Closer to mysticism, philosophy. There could be even more . . .


Like Me, Relevant Quotes

Quotes from someone who thinks like me:

“Leonardo da Vinci wrote a defence of this attentive gaze into the manifest cosmos, for he saw it as the basis of creativity, and moreover an ability to perceive new forms usually obscured from our ordinary perception. This imaginative engagement with the world may explain his extraordinary creativity and visionary powers, so it is therefore instructive for anyone pursuing the fruits of imagination to understand this method of active imagination, for this may prove indispensable in our integration and understanding of some of the stranger phenomenon that we shall encounter. Here da Vinci describes his curious method:

If you look at any walls spotted with various stains or with a mixture of different kinds of stones, if you are about to invent some scene you will be able to see in it a resemblance to various different landscapes adorned with mountains, rivers, rocks, trees, plains, wide valleys, and various groups of hills. You will also be able to see divers, combats and figures in quick movement, and strange expressions of faces, and outlandish costumes, and an infinite number of things which you can then reduce into separate and well conceived forms [my italics].2

Moore, David J.. Evolutionary Metaphors (pp. 14-15). John Hunt Publishing. Kindle Edition.

“Apophenia, or indeed, pareidolia, is a creative perceptual act that transposes—or brings forth—meanings and patterns out of apparently chaotic or highly complex situations, images or thoughts. In other words, anything that has implicitness (a poem for example) is open to an interpretation—or hermeneutic ‘reading’—in which the observer is inextricably a part. The poem without interpretation, of course, would only exist in a flux not unlike the cat in Schrödinger’s famous thought experiment—suspended in a hypothetical betwixt state of either/or until it is ‘collapsed’ into isness by the act of observation. Both apophenia and pareidolia are essential to the psychotherapeutic discipline of gestalt therapy, which begins from the principle that man has a ‘meaning faculty’ that grasps totalities—that his consciousness is naturally connective rather than deductive. In other words, perception aggregates ‘parts’ into ‘wholes’ in the same way a baby recognizes his mother’s whole face almost instantaneously. Not by an act building up an image bit-by-bit but by an unconscious mechanism that collates the sum of the parts, thus resulting in the near miraculous recognition of pattern, form and, importantly, meaning.

Moore, David J.. Evolutionary Metaphors (p. 14-15). John Hunt Publishing. Kindle Edition.

“Carroll goes on to say in The Apophenion (2008) that these traits can be found particularly amongst ‘magicians, mystics and occultists’; however, it also affects many individuals who often provide advances, more generally, in other less ‘magical’ endeavours by their sheer creative drive. Invention is basically where the imagination converges with an objective reality, in which the imagined thing is amenable to the laws of objective reality. When this happens the imagined form takes shape in the world of space and time, and is palpable and functional as either an object, or as a symbol of higher truths, providing a sort of ‘bridge’ between the two worlds. It is as da Vinci said, a ‘well conceived form’. Creativity of this kind is crucially important for a culture’s health, and also presages scientific advances that are enormously beneficial.3”

Moore, David J.. Evolutionary Metaphors (pp. 15-16). John Hunt Publishing. Kindle Edition.


I came up with the idea of the “self entwined within an interactive field of meaning and knowledge,” due to our intentionality, the figure/ground. The Life World within the Greater World. There are other people moving it along in other perspectives . . . a bit more arcane:

“Kripal describes the discipline of hermeneutics—the central theoretical approach which runs throughout the book (although mainly in Kripal’s own responses to Strieber’s autobiographical material)—as ‘the art of interpretation that deciphers the hidden meanings of some enigmatic symbol, text, dream, vision, or striking coincidence’ which, he states, recognises ‘a single process that co-creates both the subject and the object at the same time’ (2016: 112–113).”

Moore, David J.. Evolutionary Metaphors (pp. 19-20). John Hunt Publishing. Kindle Edition.

“The trickster god Hermes, whose name constitutes the very word ‘hermeneutics’, has been called by Jorjani an archetypal ‘dialectical antagonist’, a sort of ‘living’ kōan of the collective unconscious. The ‘hidden meanings’ of these symbols reveal a radically new understanding of our ontology, that is, they present evolutionary metaphors concerning our state of being, and how we attend—through our intentionality—in an active participation between the world of phenomenon and our selfhood.”

Moore, David J.. Evolutionary Metaphors (p. 20). John Hunt Publishing. Kindle Edition.

“The UFO, for Strieber, Kripal and Wilson, is such a symbolic reality—a simultaneous co-creation of the trickster double-agent and our own inner dialectical antagonist.”

Moore, David J.. Evolutionary Metaphors (p. 20). John Hunt Publishing. Kindle Edition.

“In their transitional existence ‘betwixt-and-between’ they act—as Victor Turner says in his study of the notion of liminality, The Ritual Process (1966)—in a way to provide a ‘generative’ as well as ‘speculative’ tendency in the individual or society which attempts an understanding of the mysterious, that intermediate ‘other’. Importantly Turner concludes by saying that the ‘mind that enters willingly will proliferate new structures, new symbols, new metaphors’ (quoted in Hyde; 2008: 130). Nevertheless, its resonant absurdity remains, and its interpretation turns our usual sense of reality inside out. It is this place betwixt-and-between that is represented in the Kabbalah as the fertile egg of chaos; the origin of new forms and the place where the implicit and explicit are inverted, seamlessly swapping places. It is also the domain in which apophenia and pareidolia come as compensatory tools, reordering our senses, generating new patterns and meanings which take root, or even drift away and back into the tumultuous churn of potentia. This is the essential ‘stuff’ of the visionary artist’s revelation, the product of which is captured and concealed within his creation. It is the ever-present dynamism which underlies nature’s evolutionary impetus and advantageous forms.”

Moore, David J.. Evolutionary Metaphors (pp. 21-22). John Hunt Publishing. Kindle Edition.


Enhanced Contexts

Ya, I suspect it was in getting my act together, integrating this “intent part” in with the current, that was taking up my time. A lot of work; but it put me in a better understanding. People needed to understand what was up with me, were asking, wondering. I needed a better direction too, for I wasn’t out to be the same. The problem here for the world is the intelligent students like what they see, and don’t have to continue to be a part of the bottom feeder chaos.

It was when I was able to move on from that internalization/externalization dialectic, which was holding me back within some weird persona, low level of interpretation, into that interactive sense of a field of meaning and knowledge, that I made the big leap. Extensive. Real meanings, true identity . . . Wow!

There is a real reason for it all. I needed a truer orientation within life, not just this crazy stuff. Judging by what was going on around me, I had to do this.


Also, like I said, those with an anonymous, external tack, tended to be out of wack, for they didn’t really know me, like a real intimate friend would, and were missing the truer aspects, feelings, etc. When we are together things can happen in a mutually interesting way.

So, I was thinking of “me.” Hmm . . . this is that intrinsic element, I suspect. And my context was one’s Life Worlds within the Greater Worlds. Where I’m grounded.

Got it!


So, I moved up my understanding of that “externalization,” “colloquial psychology.” Its there, but not related to the higher levels, or even sanity! I moved along with my life, my paths and understanding . . . the, “what about me?”

I was hitting higher levels, experiences. Likewise, certain dreamers were playing the game here; but there they weren’t following the evolution of understandings I was having, or the themes I was interested in. It wasn’t a shared compendium here. The experiences were coming from touching upon the beyond, spontaneous, unique, not from the colloquial musings within these lower worlds, that you were trying to complete. A different source.


These levels of interpretation, there’s more to it than these down to earth perspectives, and “personality.” Its not just an ordinary simple description, symbol, being concrete; but it can be related to creativity, intelligence, imagination. Not just “what is,” but evolutionary, uplifting.

There are personal issues: you hear a lot of, like, “I don’t understand.” People get trapped within this given framework . . . “in their head.” You could get someone like Alan Watts say, when you get out of your head and see the world; “It Exists!” “Existence.” Its a pristine world, alive, energetic, colorful . . . clarity!

There are other directions possible. Sanity. The Sacred.


Ultimately, there is an even higher level of functioning, that reaches beyond this level, influence, of the “construct “ . . . Intent!

You’ve seen me picking up another thread, other than the typical one’s, since I know of the higher functioning. It wasn’t some kind of social expression that needed to be added to, interpreted: I was poking my nose into those further elements, the interactive field of meaning and knowledge, the ground. I was getting my own returns!


Changes of context:

In the original ways, I didn’t seem to know much more than the inner world: it was like I was in a extending upward room, going very high. I thought I should get out of this: then I was like spider man amongst all these upreaching colorful skyscrapers. In another situation, but with a hardened mood, I turned that inner room into a rectangular fortress room.

I was going to bed, and it was like I was going over all of the feeling associated with that, like the covers, room, etc. An image came in of a dirty chair: as I focused on that, I saw a youthful face hungered down under the covers. A further context? Likewise in another situation, I looked at a woman, in the distance: I got a reflection back, of myself, in a rectangular glass door, looking like my smiling truck!

There was a situation in which I was in “mom’s room, house.” Lee came in there, scoping it out. There were open holes with air flowing through, like furnace ducts . . . energies? After a while, Lee went into a dark square, and stopped. I asked mom where Lee was, and it was something like she is in her “tupi” . . . teepee? I left this situation by going on to the “roof” of it, top. It was like a cool Star Wars scene, with its colorful sets, and a unique vehicle, like some interdimensional kind of motorcycle, which I hopped on. I was a bit more there too, myself, how I looked . . . a newer level, personage, moving on.

“Madame Blavatsky in her enormous book, The Secret Doctrine (1888), states that the ‘noumenon can become a phenomenon on any plane of existence only by manifesting on that plane through an appropriate basis or vehicle’” (2012: 20).

Specking myself. Her two too. Its important for me to get along with my own evolutions of understanding and themes. I got to stand on my own two feet. I don’t need those “whatevers.” They are not SEERS!!! There are unique presentations coming in that are relevant to me.

The point is, I can move things along, in a down to earth, or an enhanced way. The area though was by the Civic Center, close to where I lived on 8 Street . . . I first encountered the black there! Making more of it now.
