What is Reality?
Questions about reality abound, especially regarding consciousness. What known phenomena in nature, considered emergent or otherwise, are similar to consciousness? Perhaps this is a question regarding contact experiences as well since it appears to be an emerging phenomena.
Consciousness, like the elements of nature, is always adapting and evolving. We didn’t even know it existed until we began exploring the spiritual or metaphysical nature of our existence. Humans tend to see themselves as separate from nature, even though there is evidence across the spectrum of our own evolution that we are unable or unwilling to consider.
A perfect example is the ‘missing link’ of human evolution. We will absolutely not consider the ability and nature of mutation. We needed a larger cranium to house the growing intelligence. The result, over time, were the mutations that brought about homo sapiens. It happened gradually over a period of time. It is the same pattern in organic life, mutations based on the need of the species to adapt to new environments, both biological and ecological. More than likely it has little to do with genetic manipulations from outside the human genome.
Educating Ourselves – Drawing Out
Those who are stuck in previous thoughtmospheres, usually from the education based on previous discoveries however misunderstood or misinterpreted they may be, tend to only see things through those lenses. Just one example of the shift in thinking was offered by Gregory Bateson in Steps to an Ecology of Mind, where he states, “What we have to think about is how the pieces of knowledge are woven together. How they help each other.”
“Matter in quantum mechanics is not an inert substance but an active agent, constantly making choices between alternative possibilities. . . . It appears that mind, as manifested by the capacity to make choices, is to some extent inherent in every electron. This does not mean that an atom has the same consciousness as a human being, but rather that an atom has a reflective capacity appropriate to its form and function.” physicist Freeman Dyson
Vernon Neppe and Edward Close presented yet another perspective in their TDVP model, where consciousness, space and time are tethered across nine dimensions. “The discrete metafinite (finite and transfinite) is embedded in the continuous infinite. Discrete refers to the measurable pieces. They are like quanta, discrete, pixilated elements. But each element can be measured in Space, Time and Consciousness. All aspects of Reality obey the Laws of Nature.”
After some considerations, I’ve learned that an experience system within the contact scenario, the collection of sensory perceptions gathered over an array of intentional and occasionally unintentional events, develops through feeling things out. Everything is vibration, right? That includes everything in nature, which means it is, by default, a part of consciousness. It’s not separate.
So we feel first, obviously, our bodies are the receptors of the signals (actually transceivers) and illustrate that nature, according to the indigenous ways, the gut feeling is our first connection with our environment or outer reality. We send from there, too. It’s downright reciprocal, but we usually aren’t conscious enough to realize it, let alone observe and learn.
I agree also with our innate ability, often unrecognized, of naturally reaching out to perceive ‘what is’ in a kind of constant reciprocal event. Structurally I think it is a synergy of chakras, meridians and ‘clair-alls’ (clairsentience, et al – send/receive circuits) that is at work always. Again, we aren’t aware enough to deepen and/or expand our moments of coherence it seems. Sometimes we are.
We often hear of the notion that we create our reality. It has occurred to me, and I wonder if, the way in which we create reality is the interaction between the positive thought (or negative), neutral object and the electromagnetism attracting loose and/or shared electrons of people, places and things that resonate. It’s the spook and spooky action at a distance thing applied locally. It seems that this is a recurring theme, yet I don’t find it articulated as a consideration in discussions regarding contact and its significance. Your thoughts?
