Escaping the Prepackaging

The mind is proved to really distinct from the body, even though the mind is shown to be so closely joined to the body that it forms a single unit with it. All errors commonly arising from the senses are reviewed; an account of the ways in which these errors can be avoided is provided. Finally, all the arguments on the basis of which we may infer the existence of material things is presented not because I believe them to be very useful for proving what they prove, namely, that there is a real world, that men have bodies, and the like, but rather because, through a consideration of these arguments, one realizes that they are neither so firm nor so evident as the arguments leading us to the knowledge of our mind and of God.

Rene Descartes is his 1637 work, Discourse on Method and Meditations on First Philosophy is explaining something we all know, but forget about the self. We have chosen a certain type of consciousness that identifies with the body and flesh for a certain period of time.

Other types of consciousness choose other forms to express and expand in any particular dimension. Our earthly experience contains knowledge of the existence of more than one body, but we focus on the present one even though bleed thru experiences occur. We call these experiences by other names, but the cells remember those body experiences and comprehend them in cellular consciousness terms.

These self created experiences are lodged in our body consciousness. The mind, as Descartes explains, is distinct from the consciousness units that are connected to secondary activities that function in another aspect of space and time, butthey are well aware of how those activities impact the present as well as the future. The reality of each day is anticipated by the cells and the body is prepared for it although we overlook these precognitive projections. A “future life” grows out of the present mindset just like a tomorrow grows out of today.

We are taught not to trust this self; the ancient truth that there is something more perfect than us expresses a distorted self-validity that requires a God-like figure to worship. Descartes found that figure using his six meditations, and he put his beliefs in what could be proved scientifically as well as what he believed to be true about the self.

That mind-body connection is the fence that contains thoughts that manifest matter and our language prepackages those ideas into certain patterns. Escaping the prepackaging is a task, but we have the ability to accept our consciousness for what it is, which is best described as the energy that travels faster than the speed of light as it expands in the awareness of a stream of consciousness, a mind, and a self-created body.
