I love what you were just saying.
About our brains (understanding) being limited..
It's why I use so many different words.
I could tell you for sure I saw a black triangle ufo but was it there first of all and if it was there was it physical? And if it was physical was it
how I saw it or was my brain making that up as the closest relative already stored in my brain I could "re-cognize" to have the closest likely
understanding in broad stereotypical terms..
I'm loose on language not to obscure but to keep what we are looking for in the sights.
My mom calls the "fairy" effect.. "The little girl" she finds it playful. But she does separate that concept from the "evil" stuff like her "demon"
encounters.. Her "little girl" or "fairy" is like "the borrowers"
I keep as many different concepts or viewpoints going at all times as I can.
One day it might click.
I have a very deep rooted fear.. Very deep, feels like multiple thousands of years old deep buried subconscious fear of being tricked and sucked into
"fairy land" to continue this theme.. Never to be seen again.
Actually I view scientific terms like atom particle, subatomic particle to be just as mythological as fairy/elf/gnome...
The effects are there but the name is an invention of mankind. And who knows if the grouping is correct. A + B = C is the same as C - A = B and even
though the answer is the same the explanation for the answer could be different.
All descriptions of reality.
And I don't know anyone who has it figured out.
If I talk to Zeus and he gives me that chronos is losing power.. It's not so different from a scientist saying time doesn't have a constant speed in
relation to consciousness or in relation to nuclear half lives.. How would you even tell if it was constant?
Could you test times constantness? And if so how?
Oh and the quote that says your last post...
"It's turtles all the way down"
If you don't know the quote well you can easily find out what it means.
I'm not stuck on a final answer.
I'm practicing and watching if anything works.
I'll never know how it works, so I more readily use words like vampire than I do " the electron shifted energy states to a lower energy shell
releasing a photon which can then excite other electrons to higher energy states... Blah de blah blah and those guys still can't get at it..
I'm closer using loose mythology..
I'll leave this post here:
In dim light I can change colors of objects I look at.. My bias picks one but I can override it by changing my bias..
I think it speaks volumes.
"Doors of Perception"
"The brain is a reducing valve (to common denominators)"
Many "trippy" chemicals actually shut off parts of the brain..
I think there is a clue in there somewhere.
Problem is we evolved to "look past that" as we look past the cells floating over our pupils..
"Too much information"
Focus on the lion in the grass over there, not the "fairies"
Disassociation is interesting in breaking bias.
"Everything that's out of focus is a dream."
(a local band lyric)
Culture IS our operating system.
That's why I dual boot.
