I would wager that if we had three arms, three eyes, three nostrils, three ears and so forth, that we would see the world in a "trinitarian" sort of
Though many religions and philosophies focus on a trinity structure already.
Personally, I see almost everything as if on a continuum- which could be broken down into as many pieces or levels as one wants.
This focus upon the two farthest extremes seems to be rather crude or simplistic at times. Without thinking about it, I know I tend to make an
automatic assumption about people who perceive only the extreme opposites- that they are lacking much in sensitivity, unable to pick up on nuance and
Even ones level of sensitivity can lie anywhere along the continuum- but I often wonder if a change in one base structure of belief or perception of
reality can expand or reduce that?
Like, if you take someone with a focus on extremes- say someone concerned with good and evil, black or white....and introduce them and teach them a
religion of world view that is "trinitarian", would that cause them to open their awareness to a wider variation of sensitivity in all things? To
perceiving black, white and gray?
It hit me that many religions seem to have "levels" of knowledge or teaching, and they may start with something very simplistic and dual- then as
one studies further, it expands to a trinity, and then later to very numerous angels, saints, gods, energies, aspects of self.
My first thought as I saw the title of this thread again this morning was- what does the author mean by "solve" it?
The immediate answer that arose within me was- because each soul, each mind, has the urge and innate draw to expand
To become more aware, to perceive and experience more. To expand beyond the self-other separation and get closer to wholeness again.
I suspect that many religions offer various types of exercises for slowly expanding mind- in the same way one would slowly work on stretching muscles
of the body, the mind too, needs progressive work.
