Truthful Subjectivity

Therefore I must now ask myself whether I possess some power by which I can bring it about that I myself, who now exists, will also exist a little later on. For since I am nothing but a thinking thing or at least since I am now dealing simply and precisely with that part of me which is a thinking thing if such a power were in me, then I would certainly be aware of it. But I observe that there is no such power; and from this very fact I know most clearly that I depend upon some being other than myself.

Rene Descartes in his third meditation from his 1641 work, Discourse on Method and Meditations on First Philosophy did lay some fertilizer on the beliefs about God that continue to expand in linear time. Descartes wanted to prove that there was a supreme being made in the likeness of man and that being controlled his actions and thoughts. There was no other explanation that made sense to him since he only used his objective thoughts to describe his own subjectivity. His rock-bed reality made all other thoughts about other realities that exist in and around the self inconceivable.

We have neurologically blinded ourselves for centuries so we only accept a certain range of neurological impulses as true reality, but our subjective consciousness is innately aware of many valid versions of reality. We identify one small portion of the psyche and consider it our greatest part, but it’s flawed by beliefs about God which are shaped by the egotistical doctrines of man-made religions. There is nothing outside of the psyche. The psyche is built on a framework of consciousness units that function uniquely within the universe of each individual consciousness.

All realities emerge from the psyche. Our reality is within the term psyche itself where a plethora of realities are created to fuel the natural growth and development of a personality existing in this time-space dimension. That personality seems to operate blind in some individuals while in others accomplishments and challenges are know and expected. An unbalance or contrast is set-up by a personality that has not accepted the challenges and the potential for expanded development. Distortions manifest that directly impact expansion, but these challenges still provide a framework for pursuing desires and goals.

This built-in impetus provide clues; point of reference and when they are strong enough to provide greater comprehension that constructs new framework, the old framework seems limiting and is discarded. The concept of God and the perception of an external perfect being is not framework that has to be discarded. It is framework that is expanding as we become aware of other aspects of our psyche and the consciousness units that continue to change how it perceives not only our focused reality, but the realities that exist within and around it.

Old world inhabitants may scorn this idea of a god that has no shape or form and is an aspect of our own consciousness, but when we realize that these old beliefs are portions of our own psyche that have not reach a level of awareness that assimilates expanded knowledge we begin to appreciate our multiplicity for what it does in this physical reality.

Too much inner spontaneity at any given moment in linear time creates unknown experiences that are interpreted by the ego consciousness as myths, folklore, or fantasies, but at some point this spontaneity manifests as truth since it originates in our own truthful subjectivity.
