If you take a glass sculpture and smash it into tiny fragments, you are not proving that these fragments actually make up the sculpture simply because there is no known mechanism to somehow reassemble them.
Similarly we have the same problem with life & sentience - you can take a human body & reduce it to it's elementary particles and you will not find a single sign of life or an elementary "life particle" - all you would have is a broken body.
So why do these people assume that these elementary particles are real (they have an almost negligible existence span) and not just broken fragments?
I see human consciousness and perception-response in terms of archetypal ideas that embody or logically extend their predicate (idea). So the sense-identity of an independent consciousness or power to define, predict and control a seemingly
separate life, world or facets of itself is an idea of dis
integration, of a split mind from which comes not only a fragmented or self-conflicted experience, but the Humpty Dumpty invocation of the 'King' as the idea of order over chaos - as distinct to unfolding order through
This can also be seen as the interjection of a 'self-conscious' inhibition of love or self-recognition (as being), and of hate - as the feared or denied expression of attack. And so the development of personal and social constructs of conditional 'loves and hates' operate the exclusion or at least suppression of both
the truly intimate and the fearfully destructive expressions of power and powerlessness, as equally threatening to the order of a narrative continuity and thus associated and confused with each other.
Attack is thus persisted in as a managed or controlled splitting of consciousness that is itself the basis for the experience-existence of such a construct IN consciousness. The subjective consciousness is thus subjected or rather a willing subjection to the parameters that maintain self in image - as the focus within the experience of being both in a world while in judgement or definition of it.
So a priesthood smashing 'adams' in a vastly complex instrument demanding great sacrifice (ongoing cost) is maintained and maintaining the model or archetypal picture of their own predicate as if reverse engineering life so as to replace or upgrade it to a better system of control.
Greed as a need for possession and control is an insatiable sense of lack, where there is never 'enough' and any symptoms of lack are always too much, and so its pattern is one a self-deprivation within a negatively self-reinforcing loop.
The patterning of minds in denial, is a reversal - such that the truth (running away or being driven by fear of chaos) is presented to self and other as a mask of control over and alignment in saving from, overcoming or escaping 'chaos'. Losing 'face' is thus exposure to lack of substance - and support or inclusion.
All of this is emotionally charged and mentally 'ruled' or filtered to run by default as learned subconscious routines or habits of conditioned reaction - taken or acted from as presumed consensual reality.
The priesthoods of any claim to knowledge protect that claim to maintain their social identity as power, privilege and position. So the construct of complex financial instruments as the means to pass off toxic doubt in concealed denials is simply self-survival operating through the mental capacity for dissociation.
Failure is therefore built in by design, such that 'War on ignorance' or on anything else is never intended to be resolved but exactly the opposite - and it is this characteristic reversal that operates the signature of presenting the forms of a wished-for outcome, as the cover for the denial of anything but token moments of seeming promise.
Thus we have the doublethink
of minds running self-contradictions with a straight face. Or rather a learned mask - that hates to love, while loving to hate. This may seem extreme, but the undoing of a false sense of self in image is greatly defended against, and the engagement in its satisfactions is no less protected. Albeit there is no rest or peace in either.
Digging under our own foundations - in terms of our 'world-view' as a sense of deep discovery, meets what it does not expect. Because they are no more 'solid' than for example - turtle island. But nothing created by the Creative is without power, and the recognition of the Creative as the source and nature of power is in acceptance and alignment with it as both self-honesty or congruency, and joy or wholeness of purpose.
This is also to say that the seemingly separating or segregative and conflicted perspective is undone by the reintegrative movement to the appreciation of a release from distortion to a fullness of being.
Unified purpose embodies an unconflicted or un-split mind - and shared purpose is the nature of minds in synchronous movement - which is also called 'one mind in many'.
The idea of the one in the many is also that of the whole in every part - even in every 'adam'. True part-whole relationship is infinite in being edgeless or without measure. This is the re-cognition of wholeness in any part, moment, or situation.
As long as we feed the troll, it will use our collective funding to hypnotise or terrorise us. Everything true is worthy of appreciation, and everything untrue given true allegiance is costing us the moment of sharing the true. Feeding or attending one is starving or disregarding the other. Seeking to keep both is setting a goal of conflict and protecting it as our self.
While we are suffering the blows of outrageous collisions, we are in the realm of sorting the false from the true in order to keep one and let the other go. To oppose our healing or wholing is to build more defences against the undoing of our pet projects and projections, demanding ever more sacrifice as an ever deeper, denser, darker and more paralysing experience of fragmented compartmentalised and hidden self-hate in all its quarks and peculiar shifting momentum.
The entanglement of projected fear is as if we all hold parts of each other in associations of frozen conflict, as unrecognised debt or withholding/withdrawal. The releasing of which is to a re-cognition of a shared appreciation of freedom to move and be more truly aligned instead of being conformed to a mutual sacrificial displacement map or model.
The movement of life as the simple desire to know and be known, can of course play in particle physics as it can in knowing itself through the act of giving the measure of its own acceptance to any 'object of affection'. But the key is the predicate from which or through which such universal motivation arises. The scientific desire for the uncovering appreciation of the already true, accepts the recognition of the false as false, and therefore as the releasing from any status as a foundation from which to build or extend or make identity from.
Truth is self-revealing - but not to an ongoing commitment to making something else in its place. Yet even this will - in time - generate the conditions or the ripeness of the willingness to listen and align in the stirring of truth that may first seem disturbing, however gentle the knock at the door.
