To describe the indescribable, we can use analogue and metaphor only.
This is the case when we use our thinking, to describe our thinking.
In doing so we see the equivalent of the interplay between ‘free electrons and bonded electrons’ for an electric current in an electric conductor.
For our thinking, we experience the interplay between our (bound) thoughts and (flowing) thinking.
All we perceive, and describe, is based on our own use of thinking.
What we call reality, is in fact a thought: a realisation.
This can be ‘reverse-engineered’ to help us understand our thinking.
Our ‘models of science’ are - inverse images, trails in a Wilson cloud chamber - of the process of realisation.
Science, religion, reality, you: all are cognitive constructs.
All are based on the process and procedure of realisation.
Although we cannot use mind to describe mind while it functions ...
we can use the function of mind to trace our mental functions.
The following series of metaphors portrays how i came to see thinking.
Central stand the notion of ‘reality’ as composite of ‘images’ of realisation.
Realise - as presented by Pribram - that our brain represents a hologram in function.
Likewise we can not think of reality as being real; it is a (holo-dynamic) realisation
For the following there is no means for objective validation.
Not that this matters: all tools for 'objective' evaluation were based on subjective sensation.
Even the calibration of such devices always is done on the basis of subjective sense, or belief.
It means that we can decidedly base our understanding of how we think, on our capacity to think...
A metaphor for the construct of consciousness.
Events are recorded into memory, compare this to grains of sand of experience of life.
Emotional experience may con-fuse events; cf. a drop of water sticking some grains together.
Repeated emotional states 'glue' emotional clusters; reflexes are clusters of clutters of grains.
The ego - and other personality constructs - are 'sand castles' haphazardly formed in this manner.
An analogue in atomic structure
The capacity for sensation is equivalent to the subatomic charge field fluctuations.
The emotional charge fields are equivalent to the atomic constructs.
The cluttering of emotional clusters is equivalent to molecular formation.
The formation of personality/ego constructs is equivalent to the forming of materials
The electrochemical perspective:
The memories are based on the electrical charge-discharge released in sensory cells.
The impulses are relayed - Fourier encoded - via neurones.
The various impulses are 'weighed' in the nervous plexus.
The reality construct in the brain is based in the bias/state in all plexus in the body.
The personal development perspective
The baby operates (Zen) 'beginner's mind', a collection of grains of experience.
A child plays with perspectives; resolving and dissolving emotional states.
An adolescent experiences hormonal/neuronal crystallisation (same as seen for the bones).
An adult operates from within a specific reality construct, or is able to operate various reality constructs.
The personal experiential perspective
Repetition behaviour affirms reality constructs (on which they are based).
Emotional flooding van dissolve existing reality constructs
Meditation evaporates the water film between grains of experience.
Enlightenment is the ability for super fast reality processing based on the absence of emotional idea fixation.
The healing perspective
Diseases are based on erroneous (dysfunctional) experiential aggregates.
All diseases are based on interfacing con-fusion; with inner-phasing collusion (Selye’s Stress system describes well how this functions).
All diseases can be resolved by dissolving the dysfunctional (consensus) cognition constructs.
Most people do not need healing in the present; but healing of their past: the release of erroneous reality constructs (‘beliefs’).
The science of sainthood
Science, religion, persons and collectives operate by the above function.
All wars and conflicts are based on errors in realisation.
“Reality” and “Truth” therein a very damaging constructs, interfering with peace and health.
Resolution of these constructs - as noted by so-called ‘holy books’ - is to be done at the personal level.
Any person can resolve erroneous cognitive constructs.
Starting point is that reality is a realisation; neither reality nor truth exist.
Stepping stone is the understanding that the crumbling of the mental ‘sand castles’ (“the dark night of the soul”) is in fact the solution for releasing the full mental scope, free from fixations.
Once the clustering is released, realisation operates ‘in superconductivity’ (cf. the work of David Hudson on mono-atomic structures): all of reality is experienced as a realisation: you operate in unity with the universe, and are a ’pope’, i.e. ‘god-person.
