The Descent of the Mind

DINDIGUL WOODPECKERThe mind is free and its playground is the cosmos. It permeates formless space in a continuum.  It interacts with matter via potential traps – a form, which on Earth is labeled: Humans.

The uniqueness of these traps or potential wells, is in their peculiar spatial alignment and conformation of biologically organized matter forming a central nervous system (CNS).

For a visual analogy, imagine a tall bottle placed vertically inside a continually flowing river. Some river water gets trapped inside and assumes characteristics of the bottle geometry, in contrast to the flow in the river.

As the mind descends into a human, it’s CNS imposes unique genetic imprints on the trapped continuum – limiting, discretizing, and conditioning expressions of the mind. The Ego is born and unique identity is created. Each human becomes an interface between mind and matter, as well as a medium for its conditioned expressions. The trapped minds start to assemble matter creating synthetic systems that replicate their conditioning of uniqueness and separateness. This creates a feedback in conditioning. As majority of human experiences become synthetic in contrast to natural, the human trapped in its own psychological programming – becomes a resource. To mobilize this resource in an efficient way, the disconnected mind creates synthetic standards, protocols, and assigns personal IDs that operate in networks. Powerful collective egos are constructed from psychologically cloned resources.

Nature on earth is not personalized.

The mind and the nature on Earth, are mutually exclusive continuum. 

There is an intelligence that understands both because it is inclusive. When the human operates from this intelligence it stops being a resource. Its creativity has a completely different character as it harmonizes mind and matter.

A signature of this intelligence is the unique experience of sacredness.
