Interesting questions. Quoting: Unit3 Nothing precedes the perspective. Quoting: Chaol
One does not come before the other.
Think of the new perspective as having an effect on all directions (past/present/future).
There is no default perspective. We experience what is most relative to us, all things considered.
The knowledge of knowing how (to wish, or whatever we want to call it) does not dictate the experience. It is experienced regardless of whether or not we think we know what we are doing.
Why would one want to reach a singular perspective? Quoting: Chaol
Then the experience would be nothing.
I don't know. My post was simply following you on this:"It's all your perception. If some of your perceptions are good while others are bad, then it is difficult to see your reality as a single perspective."
Not that my following on you was not false (you didn't reply to it anyway)
If the intention is to reach a singular perspective (as a state of being) then the experience would be nothing, as there would be no conflict or drama. There would be nothing to perceive.
However, if the intention is to consider your reality as varying aspects of what you are then it would be difficult to do so if you wanted to attract some values while resisting or rejecting others.
We can consider ourselves as being all things in our perspective without the emptiness of actually being a single perspective.
Apologies for not being more clear about this.
By "You are as much a singular perspective
now as you will ever be," I mean that the illusion of perspective is an illusion. A singular perspective dictates that nothing is there with which to compare, and thus to know. So we are all ready what we seek, if we are seeking a singular perspective.
We are all ready "nothing" and this "something" is an illusion.
Wow, lots to think about here.
Okay, I see that we have perspective at all times. We use bread crumbs (thanks Jesse) to "expand or explore" them.
We are nothing so that's why we can fill with something, which is consciousness.
However, you state above that whether we know what we are doing or not (with the Genius), we don't dictate the experience. So why are we learning how to use the Genius? And who has a subconscious if we are nothing?
We don't dictate the experience, we are
the experience. Dictating implies an external something to dictate.
However, this experience is the illusion of the relationship that arises between illusion.
I use terms like "subconscious" (and pretty much every word here) for convenience of understanding. It is impossible to be
nothing. Being is irrelevant to 'nothing'. It is also impossible to express this in language.
You can learn about the Genius for a variety of reasons. For some it may be to create more interesting illusions and dramas. For others it may be to realize that your subconscious is conscious to itself, and to realize that you are all ready your subconscious and, thus, can interact with more aspects of your perspective.
I don't want to give the impression that this nothing is without value. It is beyond value. It is the difference between a precious gem (which may make us all feel good) and the entire universe (which is beyond feeling). What price is the universe? It is without value, and to everything it is invaluable.
I understand that dictating an experience implies something external, but I don't know how to get beyond this. I know everything is within my mind. I change my mind, things change.
Yesterday, I took a walk and decided I would notice other things than usual. I did so, and the other things were all things I didn't really care to see...oil drips on the street, rust marks on the sidewalk, etc:.
I can also see it's impossible to be nothing. I've certainly tried, LOL! There is always something as far as I can tell.
I'm thinking about the rest you said and thank you.
