Ok, forgive me if this isn't cohereint.
What's the axiom of that thought?
I have none to offer you.
Only a description (to the best of my ability) of an experience.
I have no explanation.
Ideas arrive sometimes, but they are "whole" as if....multidimensional? They do not arrive in a linear form, with a beginning going towards an end.
How do you describe to someone, in words, a sphere? Much less a sphere with multiple levels?
You can start at any point on that sphere, and travel your focus around it, and come back to the point you started. But that point is just one you
chose to focus on, there is nothing about that particular point that is more important than any other. You can delve down beneath that point, or rise
above it, it is just the same point, which resonates on micro or macro levels.
I'm not doing this very well.
An idea packet feels like this, except those lines are simply my consciousness examining it.
When I get this sort of "thought packet" I have to sort of make these lines and then stretch them out into linear thoughts- with cause, effect,
before, during, after... separation of self and other, object and subject, all that happens with language. As soon as it is translated into language,
it is no longer accurate really, because it has been "unravelled", in order to communicate.
The only hope is that it can stimulate the consciousness of another, so they touch that same multidimensional concept- as if it exists outside of our
self, perhaps in the noosphere (collective consciousness) or something (I don't know).
I can point at it this way, but it is they who must find what I am pointing at. It is not a thing I created or possess- no more than my pointing out a
star in the sky, or describing what it looks like, makes it "mine" to give to another.
From this experience, I developed the idea that my intellect is somewhat of a tool or instrument, which I spend part of my life simply developing in
order that can interpret or translate. I learn language, and communication tools, so that it can be an effective receiver-broadcaster.
I get thought packets that I do not have the appropriate intellectual knowledge to translate effectively, and that is very frustrating.
Well, like now. It is hard to describe something beyond time and space, in linear language.
