Richard’s Correspondence On Mailing List ‘D’
with Correspondent No. 31
Re: Is thought is a matter?
RESPONDENT: Hi Richard..
I have a question for you. I will be glad if you could reply me back...
How is such thought? As we know, thought is a matter, and matter is limited by space and time. And every limited space has center or a reference point.
Now, how is this other center-less thought?
RICHARD: G’day No. 31, Matter, as either mass or energy, could only be limited by space and time if they, too, were limited (and thereby have a central reference point) in their extent and duration.
I will draw your attention to what I wrote back in 2002. Vis.:
Actual Freedom Mailing List, No. 30 13 February 2002).
Here is another way of putting it: unmediated perception reveals that identity (both ‘the thinker’ and ‘the feeler’) creates a centre and, thereby, a boundary/a circumference to consciousness, which it then automorphically imposes onto the properties of this infinite, eternal and perdurable universe; the extinction of identity in toto/the entire affective faculty is the ending of both the centre and its boundaries.
And, just as the ego-self (aka the ‘thinker’/the ‘doer’) has to die, so as to become spiritually enlightened/mystically awakened, so too does the spirit-self (aka the ‘feeler’/the ‘beer’) in order for the flesh-and-blood body to be actually free from the human condition.
Thus by being a flesh-and-blood body only (that is, sans the instinctual passions/the feeling-being formed thereof) and, hence, being apperceptively aware, it is patently obvious that what one is (‘what’ not ‘who’) is the universe experiencing itself as a sensate and apperceptively reflective human being; as such this ‘perpetuus mobilis’ universe is stunningly aware of its own infinitude.
And this is truly wonderful.
The Third Alternative
(Peace On Earth In This Life Time As This Flesh And Blood Body)
Here is an actual freedom from the Human Condition, surpassing Spiritual Enlightenment and any other Altered State Of Consciousness, and challenging all philosophy, psychiatry, metaphysics (including quantum physics with its mystic cosmogony), anthropology, sociology ... and any religion along with its paranormal theology. Discarding all of the beliefs that have held humankind in thralldom for aeons, the way has now been discovered that cuts through the ‘Tried and True’ and enables anyone to be, for the first time, a fully free and autonomous individual living in utter peace and tranquillity, beholden to no-one.
