Hidden Mind

Just what is going on here?

Well, the situation is far more bizarre than anyone probably realizes.  And likely what’s led the way into this non-realization is actually in part due to language.  I’m not going to throw language out the window here, but just look at how many human languages their are to begin with!  Not to mention mathematical and computational languages. Each of them come with their own assumptions, paradoxes, and contradictions—so you’re always building upon or towards one phantom or another.  Each of them have their own rules and each of them point to entirely different kinds of perception.  English is a far cry from Japanese which is further still cry from Hopi or Egyptian Hieroglyphs.  

So, what I’m getting at is all language has an obfuscating effect that makes us believe in the most basic, pure, existential, and immediate level that we actually know something.  The simplest claims like, “We know we are human beings in the primate family.  We know we are on a planet.  The planet orbits a star.  That star is but one of many in an ecosystem of stars.  Stars are flying through space.  All of this is happening, depending on your point of reference, at tremendous speed.”  Every noun in these examples kind of deadens perception in its tracks.  We don’t really know what is this life process that we are.  We don’t know what livingness is.  We actually experience it indirectly because “human being” as a thoughtform, an assumption, has stolen the show.  It actually obscures the totality and both the awe to be existing and the awe of how very much in the dark we are about all of it.

Take atoms.  We have a vision of the atomic scale as a hurly burly of packets of energies that may or may not exist in the classic sense of existing.  And some how these things supposedly building up into elements, animals, and consciousness (depending on your bent regarding consciousness).  

So when people offer speculative glimpses of the future, like cyberpunk, I don’t really think it’s going to look like that.  And if it does it will only be a flash in the pan.  The big breakthroughs, and there will be more than we can culturally digest, absorb, and keep up with are going to be tabloid news in comparison to what happens when we smash the barrier between our waking ego, and by that I mean what we entirely IMAGINE ourselves to be, and what we ACTUALLY are.

What we actually are is probably going to be so tectonic in its universal effect for the “homo sapien” population of this planet that we will look back at the history we created while assuming that we were in fact all along just “human beings”, that it will be like a color-morphing octopus looking back at a clam.  They joke for generations afterward will be “Can you believe what we did back when we thought we were humans?”

And not either “alien”, mind you.  Even that’s not quite the most helpful word for it.  In fact what we really are we still don’t have a word for yet.  Neither “magician”, “soul”, nor “godling” strikes the emotional chord that still waits to be struck, that will bring down the house of cards that has always ever been just the monkey mind trying out and trying on tunes to dance to: be they math or poetry.  

What the real future is that’s just around the corner of, say “post-transhumanism” to borrow the cultural line for it, is actually the, let’s say not remotely human, not remotely alien, and not remotely machine.  What we will become is tied closely to what we truly are just beyond the veil of “man”.  

What’s just beyond the veil of man

Is what dwells just under, just within

the pumping sinew of the hand.

What we REALLY are is at base part of some kind of technology that is not at all like the technology we create.  The technology we are exists in multiple dimension at once—at least two: one on terra firma and one on occulta animam, the hidden mind.

The mind is precisely hidden because we don’t dive in.  We skate upon an ice sheet surface of our consciousness.  And it’s how we employ language conventionally that brings us to a total halt.  Because this language makes us believe that we already know.

So the way to get under the ice is actually first to embrace our total ignorance.  After that, the ice around us starts to melt.  And as it melts we gain more and more access to the hidden mind.  This hidden mind, I maintain, is an unknown cosmos.  There is the marco cosmos of galactic filaments, the micro cosmos of the quantum, and the hidden cosmos that rests in your very hand and the very essence that moves it and moulds both these seemingly micro and macro universes with it.  

The hidden cosmos, obfuscated by the assumed knowing mechanisms of language, is, as the cliche goes, the true “final frontier.”  

God visits God in prison.

God says, “Pssst. Hey, I got the key.”
To which God replies, “Dude, I’m in jail.”
God then says, “I know but I have the key.”
God looks back to God and says, “I know, but don’t you see? I’m in jail!”

We are collapsing into love and images of fear are taking us there

Look at your TV. Look at your Internet. That be you. In our creations we see our own hearts and minds reflected—distorted by the wires, channels, and tech—but that be you indeed. From billions of mingling, witness-bearing souls every instance, every nuance, feeling, and thought is bounced from space and back into the pool of our collective Inter-awareness. What you are seeing online is what we are offline…

The screens true value are in their individual and collective effect of forcing all those that look into them is to also look into themselves and to the world around them—I seem to be seeing all the brutality, greed, vanity, manipulation, cruelty, corruption, apathy, beliefs, violence, rape, suicide, death, and into the will, the desire, to continue it. And then there is that feeling—a shiver of collapse. Will it be the world collapsing or will it be our preservatives?

It seems to me that a telewakening will become our inevitable and with it: an unexpected revelation that was born from War of the Worlds and the Atomic Age and then raised on the War raised on Terror and the Information Age. And it seems to suggest a collective repulsion, a collective rejection, and the requirement of total love for our collective survival.

For what has been used historically as weapons against the mind and spirit of the species—images bearing (and bringing about) campaigns of total fear, total greed, total brutality, and total destruction—have actually become the very instrument which has taught the mind and spirit of humanity what it can not tolerate. What no being could tolerate. That the only option available for its survival is to become the total opposite of what it sees; the only way to escape total war, total fear, total death, and suicide is through total peace, total love, and life itself.

Images of unfathomable horror are driving us towards social, spiritual sanity. 

When hell is about you in all directions, there is nowhere to turn but in and up.

OddEdges & Anti-teachings



1. A notion relating to telecommunications technology and spiritual enlightenment.  Conceptually, the idea that one of the inevitable outcomes of the telecommunications boom is a sensation of embedded interconnectedness.  Furthermore, due to the saturation of human-wrought images and recordings of behaviors, norms, traditions, greed, neglect, suffering, cruelty and so on, human beings will be unable to remove their attention away from it; thus forcing individuals into a deep personal inquiry into the psychological models and attitudes that allow such behavior to take root propagate.

2. The act of mental self projection/extension via social technologies becoming so omnipresent that the demand for self-reflection into the very essence of that which has generated this projection becomes an uncontrollable urge.
