The Spectral Expanse of the Collective Mindscape



By Ron O. Cook
(Author of The Enigmni)

What cause does the mental vista impact upon the underpinnings of Earthly happenstance to existence bring? A mind searching the dreamscape's horizon for order and unity that states positive and negative results to each and every sequential event suggests its own purpose -- truth. How shall we define Truth? Can lies create conditions and sequences of events that are known? Life events seem embroiled with both truth and illusions and all this experience seems driven by the potential of negative happenstance. Are the illusions the contrast necessary to the learning of a higher existence?

Man thinks and something happens in this physical realm of Time/Space with consequence. It has been said, "Not that one is, but that whereby Is, is." Does this mean there is something higher than one's own being? Indeed, so. We are here to become one with the other through unconditional love or coherency found in the pathway of Truth. Truth is the positive force that started all potential seen here in Time/Space.

Humanity is here for some higher purpose other than that of the animal or the apparent generality of external things. Mankind must become through strivings to more intense initiation and morality. Wars must be fought for ideals held in truth against a background of negative forces seeking to amplify in reality. New challenges appear instantly to each soulular being held within physical Time due to humanity's free will and his own consequential offerings. The specter of Timelessness speaks across ethereal boundaries to stir the soul at the bifurcation of each trial and tribulation. Life seems a sequence of many tests when viewed from the top of its collective Mindscape.

Born into this world of experiences chained to past information, we look for direction and scope as we evaluate each and every clue that presents itself to us in a lifetime. Some clues for Inquiry present many directions toward an end that seems truthful and good. Other messages send results that are negative and wrong. We start over after each test toward a new direction. As children, we are too close to each experience with feedback where repetition of positive or negative behavior serves to embolden us or break us down. Always we seek to leverage for power and control in each and every event sequence -- survival of the fittest? But power and control is illusive and hides the real end product. At times, life seems like play, but the dead say otherwise.

Some of our fellow beings serve to bring contrast and meaning through their examples of self-actualization to our mindsets. They influence through their end-results and we emulate their feats to our hopeful benefit. If we perceive the other's results as beneficial we adopt their behavior and we experiment using their tools for manipulating the human environment. If we adopt this information float as our means of leveraging life for truth we may be adopting a lie, as our model for truth is not a lie -- it was a reality experienced just past the ever-widening potential.

Humans leverage life in truths and illusions. How we package each event sequence determines if we leverage selfishly or in unconditional love for others. In each and every case, the hierarchy of human survival is at stake. Should this be judged from the standpoint of the self or of the collective? Many, without hesitation, take the self or narcissistic point of view in every life event 85% of their lifetime. The danger to civilization is that the selfish will band together and demand self-gratifying acts from the collective of human be-ness at the expense of positive behavior that is now selfish.

These beings of high narcissism represent the spoiled potential of human destiny. They are a pox on humanity and use selfishness and victimization to leverage the minds of others via emotional blackmail and shame. They position for a place of high intellect, but fulfill a realm of complex ignorance through a world-projected fallacy. Their tool is the sophisticated lie dressed up in the jargon of the court (e.g. argumentum ad ---) and sold to the uneducated public as a truth. In essence it is trickery.

The methodology of the negative narcissistic person trying to convince others of their sound positioning, is extensive miss-representation of the facts. They will cajole to catch their breath and then attack again, and again to keep their adversary off balance. At times they will hide behind a fawning façade, then strike. A verbal barrage of rapid-fire wording is used to overshadow any attempt to counter their stance. They will "hawk" or sell their lies aggressively to all surrounding forums in order to gain a consensus. Their energy, stoked by fear-of-failure, is usually higher than that of the "possessor-of-truth". In the end, their cause is usually perceived as "justly" real, due to their "artful" selling power and crafty zeal, not to mention that their audience is not very sophisticated but does represent 85% of the total audit. Many lies are presented as truths in the above fashion.

Much of the world is an illusion due to the dictates of the above example of truth-less behavior. What is real? Is beauty real? Is showmanship real? What does the aesthetic presentation have to do with truth? Stimulus and response elicited by visual or sound impact can bowl over a sense-starved person. Many youth become slaves to music and video that sells an illusion of pop-culture that has nothing to do with reality. Beauty, which is an illusionist's tool, betrays man souls to failure. Morals and truth can be subsumed easily to gain an edge for a long-range selfish cause.

When humans band together or manipulate others via self-gratifying lies and play false with other beings, they begin a criminal or immoral behavior that takes advantage of the collective in such a way, that civilization can suffer a retrograde. Merit is subsumed for the cause of sloth and the benefit of the selfish criminal rather than the positive reinforcement of truth over illusion.

Eternal movement seems to identify being or "Be-ness" as it strives to become, while undulating from dimension to increasingly complex dimensions -- the journey within the Mindscape. Humanity can discover the singularity of the Nemo or non-being while thinking upon "All Things" if they have the capability to contemplate deeply and inwardly. Thus, reading the symbols of godly communication rewards them. Deep meditation from within a swirling vortex of gestalt-euphoria can give a person pause, to someday ask himself, "What am I?" How many beings know what they truly are beyond what the other has told them?

"I am Mind -- there is me." Collective humanity will discover that they exist because they know they participate in thinking -- to reason. Outside of a human's own self looms the ever present, Other which is everything other than himself or herself. Then they realize that they would not exist without the Other, and that the Nemo or no-being would be them if the data that the Other provides was not present to cause them to move in the divine dance of communicative revelry through feedback.

Upon birth our mind is of and with the Universal essence as we crossover into manifestation. Learning of the physical world begins immediately as we join the great arena of human matriculation toward fulfillment of becoming. As infants we garner information via communication with the Other within the physical realm forming billions of feedback loops that bring the Other into the reference-plane of our mind. We literally suck-up the information mirrored into the cursor of our mind's eye from the outer world and incorporate the macro into our micro (as above, so below).

Our existence is reinforced by mirrored or reflected information. Data from the outer world collide with our inner world to become our collective domain where we use its info as a tool for motivation in a physical state. Our mind takes on burgeoning mental power with each event sequence that impacts our past understandings. Soon we become the Me -- that self-oriented entity that thinks it made the universe and the Other isn't so great after all. Personality destroys the collective. We forget that we are the sum-total of all we observe. We are the Other, without it we would not exist. Data must receive and broadcast data to produce the surroundings of a universe.

When the entity becomes the Me, the Law of Consequences of the Universal Essence of Divine Providence is locked into its very being. The time of reckoning has dawned. We become responsible for our existence as well as the Others. Interred within the flesh of this physical realm, we once again seek the euphoria of our past freedom. This causes a concentration upon the self and its development toward adulthood. The self becomes the prime-directive of our young lives. We become obsessed with ourselves using every tool at our disposal to leverage for control and power in order to climb toward the top rung of life's apparent ladder. Greed, fear and self-gratification is born within to hide the power of the Other as we seek only recognition and adulation from all others to reinforce our own immortality over theirs..."I am the greatest!" I exist!

Total preoccupation with the self increases loneliness within the individual as it draws the Me closer to the Nemo or void of non-being. At first we selfishly seek recognition from the other to reinforce our existence which is tied up in the ego. We use superficial stuff to impress upon the other our power or beauty. Later we use false-love giving attention only if it is returned abundantly to mirror our existence and satisfy our desire for self pleasure. The giving of gifts to bribe for recognition--a smile here, a wink there, an affair consummated just to keep the selfish phosphors of the interior energy-source shining will only dull unless one leverages Love in Truth. False-play only creates the illusion of the true reality that we seek...Love. That is why so many lives are now in the vortex of chaos.

Some of us become so concretized in our selfish loneliness that we lash out at others in anger to force ourselves upon their recognition sensors. Insecure in our own fear-filled drama, we seek to destroy others because of our living-illusions about the primacy of self. Some are so fearful that they do not exist in reality, that they will steal, rape, kill or be killed to reinforce their brand of selfishness. "I demand recognition -- I desire homage without pay!" The Other will not recognize them, for they have strayed to close to the edge of the Void and have become the Nemo...a victim of "what goes around comes around."

True Love is always possible to the Me if selflessness is present and Other is understood to be an integral part of ones existence. The old Golden Rule of "doing good to others as you would have them do good to you," is a reality because the other becomes inherent in you. Think of what you really are, and realize that all the people you've met, everything that exists outside of you makes you what you are and think. You are your experiences. All of this Other is inside of you via your human senses. You make decisions based upon their mirrored gifts of learned data and subtle influences. Their images and expressions are part of your mental be-ness. You are them and they are you thus setting up a human feedback-looping that interconnects all of us to one another in a broadcast of holo-being.

The interfacing of the Me with the Other can create the ultimate love if selflessness is the cause for being. Mother Teresa was an example of pure love for others. Because of her purity of love freely given, she had no law of consequence impacting her being. She was cleansed, and became free, no longer encumbered with this physical realm. Her example should be taken up by all of us so we may become like her and escape from this wheel of physical being into the Timelessness of the All where everything is present.

Our dreams suggest its reality for in them, we may visit everything, everywhere and at anytime. The universe becomes "open" in our dreams. Perhaps our dreams are the reality and our reality is an illusion to be lived and learned to be taken back for a grander purpose.
