human-mind

The human mind wants certainty where there is none. So it constructs some formula through which it justifies its chosen path as rigid certainty: The storyline one’s ego-mind has chosen to believe is absolute truth. Anyone who doesn’t agree, who doesn’t embrace the same storyline, or who actively disagrees is seen as a threat. Once the ego-mind has attached itself to a particular belief system, the belief system becomes a major facet of the ego’s identity.

So what exactly does the trinity mean?

“The trinity is a metaphor for the three aspects of human consciousness: mind, body, and spirit, or thoughts, emotions, and actions. To put things in a less abstract perspective, the trinity represents the triune human brain: The reptile complex, the limbic system, and the neocortex.”

There are seven levels of the Being.

The first level is the instinctive human being.

The second level is the emotional human being.

The third level is the intellectual human being.

The fourth level is the equilibrated human being.

The fifth level belongs to those who have built the Astral Body.

The sixth level of human being belongs to those who have built the Mental Body.

The seventh level of human being belongs to those who have built the Causal Body.

The human beings of the first, second, and third level constitute the circle of the confusion of tongues, the Tower of Babel.

These three types of humans are the ones who have disgraced the world, the ones who provoked the first and second world wars, and the ones who will provoke the third.

These three levels of humans do not understand each other.

The instinctive level does not understand the intellectual.

The emotional level does not understand the intellectual.

The intellectual level does not understand the emotional.

The three superior levels constitute the Kingdom.

The inhabitants of the Kingdom have not provoked the two world wars.

The humans of the fourth level are not in the circle of the confusion of tongues; however, neither are they in the Kingdom.

The humans of the fourth level never identify themselves with any particular center of the human machine.

The humans of the fourth level correctly drive the five centers of the human machine.

The five centers of the human machine are: Intellect, emotion, movement, instinct, and sex.

The two superior centers are the superior emotional and the superior mental. These centers can only be used by the inhabitants of the Kingdom.

Mary or Marah, the Woman-Serpent, reminds us of the Kingdom that the Intimate Christ promised to us.

Those who know how to suffer with patience in their trials and work on themselves will inherit the Kingdom.

Obviously, the true human beings are the ones who are the inhabitants of the Kingdom.

The inhabitants of the infernal circle of the confusion of tongues are not human beings. They are merely intellectual animals.

You say that like the more humanoid monsters are based of your own species. But what do you say about non-humanoid monsters?

Seeing what the human mind can make of us, I wouldn’t be surprised if they were just animals. Perhaps some little my ago that have since gone extinct. That is not to say that they were strange species, but perhaps just different enough from what we have a record of in the oral tradition of history to spark some of the odder myths.

Giant octopus and Squid for example. They’re rare now. They may not have been.

I think it’s also very probably that there are or were sea monsters, and whatnot.

It’s just difficult to know because humans are stupid, have terrible memories, and exaggerate any and everything.

why do i gotta ask for people to let this 30 yr old man live his 30 yr old life. like. drink a beer phil. call dan a cheeky fucking cunt when he’s being an idiot phil. make a disgusting sex joke that’s so bad it’s funny phil. live ur life. do it for me babe. im sorry people still treat you like a 15 year old scene kid who wants to fuck a plant.

In the unawakened state you don’t use thought, but thought uses you. You are, one could almost say, possessed by thought, which is the collective conditioning of the human mind that goes back many thousands of years. You don’t see anything as it is, but distorted and reduced by mental labels, concepts, judgments, opinions and reactive patterns.

 19.3.16// yeah my desk is a mess.  Going through a lot of stuff and doing a mind map on Canetti’s main Topics. And I’m realizing that, after all, I like this fellow.

I’ve noticed something about people who make a difference in the world: They hold the unshakable conviction that individuals are extremely important, that every life matters. They get excited over one smile. They are willing to feed one stomach, educate one mind, and treat one wound. They aren’t determined to revolutionize the world all at once; they’re satisfied with small changes. Over time, though, the small changes add up. Sometimes they even transform cities and nations, and yes, the world.

Aliens reacting to our mess of alien horror films please?

Jostedalsbreen had been on the primarily human vessel for almost thirty of their rotations now, and was confident enough to say xe knew a lot about humans and their cultures by now.

Xe even knew of the concept of popcorn, which apparently was going to be relevant for the end-of-roation bonding they referred to as ‘moovee naigt’ apparently they would view a classic of some sort. It sounded like an art form similar to theatre - which Jostedalsbreen had read about.

When xe arrived at the designated room xe had no idea what horrors awaited xem. At first it seemed pleasurable enough, but it didn’t take long before xe was as good as frozen to xir seat, silently bemoaning the evolutionary trait that rendered xem unable to move. 

Fortunately, one of the humans - Communications Officer Moreau - seemed to take notice not too long after, and end the horrific ordeal on the screen. Jostedalsbreen needed some time to recover before xe was able to communicate in a way the humans would understand, but once xe was ready, xe knew what xe had to ask.

“W- what was that?”

“The movie?” Moreau asked before they seemed to realise the problem. “It’s fictitious, don’t worry. Purely for entertainment value.”

Clearly the humans didn’t realise how unsettling that statement was. “You find footage of your own species being ripped to shreds funny?” Xe asked in disbelief, almost scared of what the answer would be. Humans did have a reputation after all, but from what xe had seen, it seemed to be largely undeserved. Even if they seemed to have no idea what self-preservation meant, and came from a truly terrifying world.

“No, no, of course not. It’s scary,” they answered, causing a wave of relief to wash over Jostedalsbreen. Until they continued, that is. “That’s what we like about it.”

The shock xe experienced must have shown, because Moreau didn’t stop there. “I’m not really sure why or how it works, but getting scared is funny sometimes. Like, when someone sneaks up behind you and scare you, and for some reason you end up laughing because the person who snuck up on you scared you? That ever happen to you?”

It took longer than it should have for Jostedalsbreen to realise that they weren’t joking, nor was the question rhetorical. “No. How would someone attacking you be entertaining?”

“I don’t know, it just is. And they’re not actually attacking, they’re just… you know. Giving you a spook.”

Pretending to understand what they meant, xe moved xir head in what humans considered a sign of agreement, realising xe had been a fool to think xe could ever understand humans.
