Action that triggers response is communication. The act of presentation or being present. We cannot avoid presentation. Our flesh and blood itself is communication made flesh. What happens when communication becomes garbled, incoherent or contradictory? Disease.
Humanity has plagued itself. Many schools of mysticism support this argument. The plague it afflicted itself with was the sense of disconnection from the world. We as a species excommunicated ourselves. It’s like everyone is a communicable disease because you communicate your presence to others and remain in their memory. If your communication is positive, you act like an inoculation, a sort of anti virus. We all know what the opposite is like.
What you describe yourself as is what the world will present itself to you as. People often say they don’t pray. You pray all the time and the world listens. In your heart of hearts you stay in constant touch with the world.
“To effectively communicate, we must realize that we are all different in the way we perceive the world and use this understanding as a guide to our communication with others.” Anthony Robbins (American advisor to leaders)
“If you wish to converse with me, define your terms” Voltaire (French Philosopher and Writer. 1694-1778)
We are talking about communication. I will ask, What is communication? An action that triggers a response? Transfer of ideas. Both definitions are correct. Body language too. Facts is one type. Action that triggers response is communication. Two or more intelligences transferring information? What are intelligences? Well, since all things have consciousness, I guess that’s everything. Let’s define intelligence as something that can receive information. Does the rock receive information when I kick it? Yes, because all information is energy. Language is just structured energy, structured sound or structured movement, or other forms of structure as well. Much of our… Seek More
We have “smart” technology in cars and appliances now. Indeed. Speaking of smart technology, most people would reject the literal definition of those items as being smart, but how are we smart beyond our ability to adapt and grow? From medicine to mental health, it’s still a hugely fuzzy area. What makes technology differ from us as human beings is that technology is not a presentation but a representation. To devise a gadget we have to take materials that previously existed in another form, and then represent them in a way that was structured by our thought, engineered to serve… Seek More
You think normally that you experience events, but there is no such thing as an event. By definition, we use the word event to describe actions that occur in an almost mechanistic sense. Saying the word event is almost the same as saying the word coincidence yet both words are fundamentally meaningless. What exactly do they describe? Something happened. As if there were no agent. As if there is no information involved. Yet has anyone experienced something happening with no agent? No cause? Or something happening that had no definable outcome? It’s like when someone says something that we view… Seek More
Our attention is a shifting thing, highly mutable, but is our body any different, really? Our body is changing all the time. Some of those changes are so vital that our life depends on them. The renewal of our cell tissues is incredibly important, and it’s a radical change. But even the rhythm of our heart is a changeable thing. The heart changes shape every time it beats. Exactly. It’s good the heart usually has a strong memory. Neurons change when they fire. Indeed. Their linkages change as a matter of course. Our flesh and blood itself is communication made flesh.… Seek More
Did you know that the word coincidence means fitting perfectly? It originally did. Co-incidence = mutual happening. The term occult means hidden from sight. This is where we get the word occlusion, but the only party that has made anything hidden from sight is humans. Animals don’t do it. Animals will bathe themselves and mate right in front of us. The elements don’t hide anything. There is no such thing as a ninja storm, just ones that human beings didn’t pay attention to. I’ve heard the English language was designed to be vague and deceptive. Yes. It was intended as… Seek More
On communication, it’s like everyone is a communicable disease because you communicate your presence to others and remain in their memory. If your communication is positive, you act like an inoculation, a sort of anti virus. We all know what the opposite is like. Maybe we really are viruses. There is a theory gaining support that we are in fact all collections of symbiotic bacteria. We are bacteria. Recent research points toward there being no such thing as homo-sapiens as a species. We are mutts. A hybrid of a group of hominid species. Interesting note. We can only be infected… Seek More
The secret to effect experience of communication is found in your self talk. People think they can hide their inner thoughts, but they constantly act them out. What you describe yourself as is what the world will present itself to you as. People say horrible things about God, but do those people say good things about themselves? We are taught not to. It’s bragging and we are made to feel uncomfortable and dislike listening to others say good things about themselves too. People often say they don’t pray. You pray all the time and the world listens. In your heart of… Seek More
