22.5. The thinking-space and the dynamics

You can not think conflicting thoughts. You make up your mind about everything possible. You interpret and must understand all you experience; you create notions – meaning. This meaning becomes your truth, and you can not simultaneously have two truths about the same.

Your neighbour creates another truth. Your cat a third. The cat does not always agree with you, nor does the neighbour. You each experience your individual consciousness with different interpretations and wills.

«Will» is, by the way, in my worldview, the same as the ability and urge to experience, this fundamental function of the Experiencer, this need to register everything that goes on – to understand, know, gain knowledge. Varhet.

Then we got yet another definition.

Everyone has their «truth».

On the other hand, the universal consciousness is still one and has one interpretation, meaning, will, and truth.

Intuition is a glimpse into this unified, true, universal interpretation of the universe. Intuition is a look into what you already «know», which we all know and always knew – before any dissociation and the Ego starts with its distortions. That is the meaning of the term «absolute truth».

That is also the meaning of what we call the subconscious – what you know but have not yet brought out in the Ego's analytical awareness. There is no subconscious mind, only consciousness that is either in or out of focus – masked or not masked.

Actually, you know absolutely everything in the entire universe.

As you walk around your everyday life, you are in the collective reality and experience everything possible from your position in space and time. You then give your analytical interpretation, or distortion, if you will.

Everyone can see the green ball.

I'm about to give you an example.

You personally think that it is blue because it tends towards turquoise. For you, it is blue.

For the child next to you, two years old, there is an excited exclamation: «Balloon!».

From ninety-nine-year-old great-grandmother, on the other hand, it comes; «What a magnificent, round bush!». She sits some distance away and has severely impaired vision.

All these analytical thoughts mix with the collective interpretation and experience. If you had not involved your Ego, you would only accept the ball and the green colour as it appears, without any interpretation of your own.

But there is a whole group of living beings present in addition to a dozen people: dogs, birds, flies, earthworms and whatnot. What determines what all these living beings imagine and experience, that is, see?

Basically, they see the prevailing notion, the dominant thought, the strongest attractor. They look neutrally, without any interpretation of their own.


Then the Egos in all the creatures are set in motion. Based on previous experiences with the individual, the Ego forms an idea about this slightly strange thing, because balls are rarely intensely green ... or blue?

«Does this pose a threat?» one thinks.

«Is it edible?» another thinks.

«Is it a toy?» thinks a third.

«Is it a football?» the fourth thinks.

Most people think it's a ball, not a balloon or a bush.

Most people think that it is green and not blue.

All these thoughts and interpretations are present in the same «thought-space», the Collective.

The individual has only one experience of his own Ego's thoughts – as part of his dissociation. But these are still thoughts, and there is only one Thought, the universal, belonging to the Experiencer – which is separated into myriads of subjective experiences.

Individuals do not experience each other's thoughts, they cannot be read «across» minds from dissociated perspectives, but they can all be experienced from a higher perspective, the Experiencers.

What's going on «up there»?

The Experiencer sees all these conflicting thoughts. Green or blue, edible or not, toy or not, shrub or ball?

Which of these ideas wins?

Who is closest to the ball? Who has thoughts that best justify their notion? Who spends the most time investigating the case? Who is closest to the collective, existing interpretation?

Who has the greatest defining power?

All conceivable factors come into play in deciding who wins. It's a dynamic system comparable to the weather, the ocean or the dance of planets, stars and galaxies – or anything else in nature.

Is the majority convinced that this thing is an edible, blue bush?

Hardly; they instead think it is a slightly unusual, green ball, but definitely a ball.

The knowledge in the Collective is created and develops through consensus, i.e. what the group of individuals as a whole most agrees on, weighed against all conceivable dynamic factors to arrive at the most credible interpretation. The one that becomes the most potent attractor.

When something becomes an attractor, a dominant idea, it takes a lot to change. Ideas spread, subjugate opposition, denounce alternative understandings, create consensus, strengthen themselves through feedback, lead to unification and, in extreme situations, rather wild and dangerous delusions.

Trump, Putin, Hitler.

Everything connects to everything. It is a single, all-encompassing, jelly-like dynamic system of mental interpretations with associated experiences.

A.k.a. life.

Among all people in all societies, a dynamic battle plays out that creates mental attractors, as described in the example with the girls in the schoolyard. An attractor is an idea or notion in people's consciousness that becomes dominant for further thinking and development.

Thought is what creates and moves things. Every thought inevitably makes new thoughts through emergence. The thought comes first; next, the manifestation occurs, i.e. the experience of the notion as something «real».
