The subjective life

An experience waiting to be experienced.

Each subject a vessel, a conduit for experience to be experienced.

A body given the chance to experience and interact with the environment.

Each vessel slightly different, shaped by genetics, memories and surroundings.

To experience is to interact, learn and observe taking in and expressing the unique interpretation.

Each vessel yearns for expression, because to express is to learn.

If each vessel learns from each unique experience, then what is the collective?

Life is the freedom to explore, interact and learn.

Each subject has different experiences and thus different lessons are learned.

A lesson unique to the subject, that no other can experience.

This the subjective life.

A thought on synchromysticism, expression and projection

Lately I have been doing a fair amount of writing and reading, which has led to much thinking. The other day I had a thought about entertainment, and how each movie, song or book (whether fictional or not) is an expression of the subject, which begins as inspiration either by external stimuli, or a thought/idea. I then started thinking about synchromysticism, which is, according to Wiktionary is:

The drawing of connections in modern culture (movies, music lyrics, historical happenings and esotericknowledge); and finding connections that could be coming from the “collectiveunconsciousmind“; and finding connections between occult knowledge (i.e. esotericfraternitiescults and secretrituals), politics and mass media.

Is it possible to read into the mass expressions of various people and cultures, their art, movies, etc and draw some conclusion on what is happening in our reality? This is of course a pretty big hypothetical, but just entertain my thought for a few minutes…

I’m sure you will all agree with me that there are basic principles, or laws of existence for anything to exist, for example, for every action there is a reaction. A basic principle. The content of the majority of movies, series, books, all abide to logic, that is to say they are not random images and audio spliced together. The plot of the story may be fictional, but the characters and the plot all take place in a logical way, as opposed to a movie being completely random, or nonsensical. If there are enough of these  expressive slices of logic from a wide, multitude of subjects, other than yours, then could it be possible to deduct a greater picture of reality?

Or perhaps another question we should ask ourselves is, what is and where does inspiration and imagination come from, or where does it exist? I have read articles by scientists who cannot definitely pinpoint where memory is kept, some even suggesting that it is outside of the brain. Is memory, imagination and inspiration (apart from external inspiration due to stimuli) all in our brain chemistry or is there credibility to an Akashic records? The Akashic records is term used in Theosophy and Anthroposophy to describe a non-physical plane of existence, where it is said that ALL knowledge of the cosmos, human existence and history are all contained, and is possible to interact with. This concept was popularized in theosophical movement of the 19th century and is actually derived from Hindu philosophy of Samkhya.

Could this be where we draw ideas and inspiration from? Could our global, collective expression simply be a projection of this non-physical plane of existence? What really made me think about it was something I read while I was researching about the ego, and I came across a piece of writing which spoke about ego and spirituality. The author (whose name completely escapes me) described an analogy of what spirit and of what God possibly is. They described spirit as the ocean and our individual living experience as the different waves, all part of the greater ocean, but made of individual experiences. Thus God would be our collective experience. If our art and expression is a slice of experience, would it be ridiculous to think that one can obtain a greater picture of our existence here on earth?

This is just a thought I desperately wanted to write down and get off my chest. It is an interesting subject I believe it is worth the thought…

‘The great trapeze artists’

‘The great trapeze artists’

An organism sculpted with duality, regardless of sex;

trust their only survival instinct.

To grow is to become stronger, evolve to new shapes;

but it is the balance between the two, that makes them so great.

It is the support and take that each provide and each receive,

to prevent gravity from meeting its needs.

Each artist separate but together they form,

The greatest trapeze artists that were ever borne.
