Occulting and Encrypting Reality through Word Magic – Language and Reality Pt.3

The previous articles (Part1, Part 2) have mentioned the importance of thought in perceiving, conceiving, understanding and navigating reality. This especially relates to the existence of those who use their consciousness and thought to manipulate our consciousness and get us to engage in behavior they want us to.

3.1 Think and Verify to Prevent From Being Fooled

Reading and getting new ideas from what is read, is input and induction of grammar, and can lead to greater induction, intuition and insight. Inspiration from reading is good, but do something with the inspiration garnered from what is read or heard or seen. Think about the material and contemplate its significance and importance in reality, the definition, meaning and purpose.

“What’s more, what happens if we do not have a firewall, virus-scan, and spam-filter running at all times? We lose our choice, as it is in these 3 steps wherein we evaluate and assert our decisions. It is in the turning off of our awareness- through the false creation or attribution of trust- whereby we become controlled” – Trivium Study Guide, p.16

Do not simply let information sink in. Constantly reflect on what you are reading as you read, think about it, contemplate. Write notes at the moment of thinking, because you probably won’t remember those specific thoughts later. That moment of correspondence of reality with what you are inputting as knowledge, or of insight, is related to the specific input of data you have at the time of reading, watching or listening to something. It is unique, and you may not remember it for a while. Even if it is spontaneous from doing things like cooking and thoughts come to mind about certain topics, right it down and think about it more. Or, think about it later since it is written down, that way you don’t lose track of things that you can develop upon in understanding. It is stepwise, in level and degrees, with prerequisites in order to gain some knowledge. Truth takes time.

Here is Richard Feynman on the importance of time and thinking:

https://youtube.com/watch?v=LX0BVsrjd0Q

Information provided to someone without their thinking about it themselves and simply accepting it as truth will result in them not thinking things through for themselves, and blindly accepting the validity of information from whoever is identified with, admired, epitomized, idolized, exulted, etc. and giving out the information.  One needs to know how to think properly in order to effectively use the faculties of thinking, and not simply accept what to think from a false misplaced sense of trust.  The result of having your thinking done for you is that your actions will result from those accepted thoughts about certain information, and so, your actions are not really your own, even though you are acting them out, they do not truly arise from you, they are someone else’s thoughts and actions manifesting what they want into reality.  There are those (dark occultists) who are all too willing to provide people with information that they construe and spin as the “truth” for others to accept, and by proxy, to behave, act and think in accordance with someone else’s desires and wishes.

Unquestioning uncritical input of data can let in falsity that gets stored as “factual truth” in memory, a memory corruption. Processing information is required to verify if it represents reality accurately or not. Without thought on the data, there is no choice but simply blind acceptance of the data input. Freedom comes with knowledge of ourselves and the reality we are in, especially the knowledge that has been suppressed with counter-mechanisms to not look into this. Learning is how we acquire knowledge. Thought is the key to decrypting the occulted reality by learning about occulted knowledge. Hiding knowledge removes it from our available information data-pool to collect, and encrypts our understanding of reality. To actively learn about deeper aspects of our consciousness, psychology, behavior, and the world we live in is to be unlocking ourselves, our own “minds”, and the reality we live in.

Without proper thought on a message being received, it simply goes in as the sender conveyed it, possibly as a virus, spam or other corruption to have you accept falsity. The process of occulting and hiding reality is to obfuscate and disfigure the truth. Man can then rationalize much behavior in his subjective multiverse unreality of inner consciousness and harm many beings in the objective world.

Some people use knowledge to manipulate the way others see reality. The rest of us need to learn how this process of learning works, how the “mind” and consciousness work, how thinking functions, etc. to turn the implicit intuitive learning ability into a more consciously aware explicit tool for properly conceiving of ourselves and reality. Restriction of time from putting our attention on the process of thinking and learning, on reflection and contemplation, leads to a tacit acceptance of whatever “feels-good” or “sounds good” to us, which is usually a reinforcement of what we already have been told to accept as the “truth” that creates our perception of reality.

The process of critically thinking about the information we receive cannot simply be taught, as it is a process of thinking itself and needs to be engaged in by developing thought itself. The basic operation of apprehension of reality is the core of the Trivium, grammar and logic, with the ability to express it to others in rhetoric. These are observing, thinking and acting. Being curious, doubting, asking questions and verifying answers are part of thinking critically. The Trivium explains how we can understand to think for ourselves and not be led into falsity because we are lazy thinkers. Simply reading is not thinking critically. Simply reading without the development of how to think properly is indoctrination. There is a process to how we think and it can be better understood in order to help free us from many occulted forms of slavery. Accepting thoughts and beliefs from others without learning about how to discern reality will lead to devolution. Occulting reality can be looked at through terminology like “story editing”, “narrative management”, but it is all perception manipulation of how we see and understand reality.

 

3.2 Word Influence, Complexity and Distraction

Simply by speaking you influence the mind of others. Tell them things they want to hear and you will be able to influence them more, and even manipulate them if that is what you seek. Tell them things they don’t want to hear, and they will likely reject your influence. Sorcery will influence others by knowing the rhetoric to get a particular message accepted for people to do what they want. It may take successive messages to be accepted for the desired behavior to manifest.

If you can’t control what people think directly, control what they have available to think about, give them other things to think about that are less important but more fun, more comforting, more convenient, more pleasurable. Flood the market with so much bullshit that they don’t know up from down and only want to be left alone to do their own thing and be happy in their lives free from the mental stress of figuring out what is happening in the world. “Don’t hassle me, leave me alone!”

The more complex things get, the more difficult it is for people to see what is actually occurring, and the more difficult it is to understand how things can be changed away from the madness it currently is. Most likely, the complexity and unwillingness to learn developed from learned helplessness, will result in a perpetuation of the system until it collapses from its own falsity that cannot be managed and recycled anymore. At some point, it collapses for good and cannot be “resuscitated”.

Too much information can be a serious distraction and cause confusion as well, since many think there is too much to bother going through. Information overload is an actual problem. People will turn off input because it is too much for them to process, since they have been trained to not think, to not process information well.

There are distractions in alternative information sources as well. The quality knowledge about morality and consciousness that allows us to find ourselves is not in quantity in the information people are sharing and talking about. People are mostly into pleasure, gratification, enjoyment, amusement or other distraction from reality that matters, even in the so called alternative media. Distractions work as a winding road to finding Truth as well, preventing access by diverting your attention from learning quality knowledge by feeding you garbage.

 

3.3 Definitions, Confusion and Chaos

Confusion is the second phase of Fear that leads to Chaos in the Natural Law Expressions chart made by Mark Passio. Confusion follows Ignorance. Confusion is a mechanism to aid in mind control.

NL-Love-FearWords create our secondary reality, reality level 2 (level 1 is manifested reality, level 2 is perceptual understanding of reality/life). They define how we conceive of what is around us. Manipulate words, and you manipulate the mind and reality perception. If someone does not understand the proper meaning and definition of a conceptual word symbol, that will create confusion with respect to an aspect of reality. This confusion creates disorder and disharmony from Truth, towards chaos in one’s life however great or small relative to the importance of the particular word symbol. An example is a semantic misunderstanding that creates a disparity in understanding and communicating reality, leading to confusion and conflict in those who cannot resolve their confusion with Truth. Those who cannot find the Truth to resolve their confusion may end up in conflict in trying to control their cognitive dissonance and reality to conform to their erroneous conceptions. Reality negotiation takes place and they reframe the reality in conformity with their existing self-image and worldview to maintain the self-delusion and unreality.

A basic example is of a lecture being given by someone who uses a word many are not familiar with. At that point, the introduction of that word of grammar that people did not understand tripped them up and prevented them from continuing to properly understand the lecture being presented. They develop confusion and frustration from this ignorance.

Other concepts are built from previous concepts, and the lack of definition in the previous foundational concepts will create an inability to understand later ones properly. Hence, confusion develops, and ultimately chaos in the internal framework of understanding reality, because a term used to create a conceptual framework is not known properly, or not known at all.

Seek Truth. Understand the true meaning and definition of words, they shape our conceptual understanding of reality and can be used for mind control.

 

3.4 Restrict Imagination of Possibilities

“Why do you think that Truman has never come close to discovering the true nature of his world until now?”
“We accept the reality of the world with which we are presented.  It is as simple as that.”
– The Truman Show

Whatever the society we live in, it create a subjective overlay of secondary reality for us to base our way of living upon. We accept the way of life, and everything in it that is a normalized acceptability, is accepted by everyone as part of the reality we live in and perpetuate. Our ability to envision, to see with our imagination, is restricted.

Understanding reality also relates to the degree of imagination we can have. The more we are aware of, the more we can imagine. If we restrict language, we also restrict imagination of possibilities. Our worldview will be limited to the vocabulary we use to describe it, and the higher order constructs of reality, the depth that we cannot see with mere 5 senses, will not be as easily penetrated by our consciousness, as we will accept what we see. Then reality occurs, and we deny it, we deny truth, because our preconceptions about reality have been constructed to limit our imagination of possibilities, restricting what we can actually see for what it actually ‘is’, and are therefore are “blinded” from seeing reality for what it ‘is’. Things that happen, truth, is therefore impossible for us in this case, because our existing construct of reality does not permit such possibilities from existing. There is no true thought involved, merely recall from memory and conditioning, as a substitute for real thought about reality. This is going from stimulus to automated response, without the required component of thought for true freedom of mind to be had. Mental slavery is when we don’t think things through objectively.

The power of thinking is what allows us to free ourselves from the constraints and conditioning we perpetuate. Even when many people eyewitness an event, or there is a lot of supporting evidence, some people will simply not acknowledge the possibility that it may be true and what they previously and currently consider as the truth of reality may be false or erroneous. Acknowledging something that is said to “not be” is to doubt the foundation of your current conception of reality, and sometimes this foundation of belief what what is possible, about what exists, is used as a basis for our identity itself. Many people are all about keeping up appearances, the façade, maintain the illusion of “beauty”, “rightness” and “correctness” on the outside while not dealing with the substantive current being they are choosing to be and what they do that is still corrupted and wrong.

A model citizen will unconditionally accept what the society considers “right”. This is creating a psychopathic society through incrementally conditioning evil as good. Make evil action a “good” action, and anyone doing evil will think it is “good”, and be fine and happy with themselves. This process takes time. This can be seen in fiction, such as the movie The Giver. Similarly as Truth takes time to develop from one step to the other, falsity also takes time to become conditioned into people as part of normalized acceptability for behavior. People won’t accept evil in their normal “freedom” of living, no matter how much control you impose upon them physically. Those born into slavery don’t know freedom as fully and are already indoctrinated into enslavement. In order to get people to accept evil as good, wrong as right, consciousness needs to be manipulated and controlled. “Mind” and “heart” control. When you get the preexisting conceptions of reality, of right, of good, altered with falsity, wrong and evil, then you can direct people away from that existing level of behavior they are at, and further degenerate them into evil actions. The freedom of mind, thought, needs to be restricted in order to limit accurate conceptual frameworks from being developed. Movies like The Giver illustrate this dystopic control as well. There are corruptors among us, in addition to the pervasive overarching systemic program of falsity that pervades our lives. Psychopaths seek to turn others into forms of themselves in order to promote the continuance of evil. They seek to corrupt those who are not corrupted, to corrupt the “innocent”. A false order is maintained through control of limiting thought, imagination, and keeping people accepting of the current “order”, the current way things are. Only the free will to do right and live morally will create true order, first in ourselves to overcome evil. We must have the capacity for thought developed for proper conception of right and wrong, good and evil, in order to distinguish one from the other.

 

3.5 Limit Words, Occult Reality

Words help to create our secondary reality, reality Level 2 (Level 1 is manifested reality, Level 2 is perceptual understanding of life). They define how we conceive of what is around us. Manipulate words, and you manipulate the mind and the perception of reality from the images those symbols invoke about reality.

Why was a word created? To reference some particular aspect of reality. It is a new word from thin air or is a composite of existing words from different lexicons that combined to create this new meaning. The word was created to convey an aspect of reality, or to assist in expressing aspects of reality. The word does not have an arbitrary meaning once it is imbued with definition. The symbol, however, is arbitrary, and can be anything, but the meaning is specific to a part of reality. Once a word is chosen, it is imbued with the power of meaning and definition for an aspect of reality.

Languages are symbols to represent reality. Realities expressed in language can be of things existing in the external world or of things existing in the internal world. External reality and internal reality. Some languages define things others don’t, and have unique words. Anyone can invent a language, a symbol, and associate sound to it. A symbol in one encryption can mean something else in another encryption system. Meaning represents something that exists, that is identified and defined with reference in some way to the objective reality for it to be expressed through. The symbol is arbitrary, but is chosen to represent a specific meaning.

Encryption

EncryptionAll languages are basic encryptions for communication. While at the same time facilitating communication, it is only comprehensible to those who know it. Anyone who does not know the particular language or symbols used to convey a meaning will not be able to understand what is being said. That is the nature of symbols. We can reference anything in reality by actually pointing to it, but when we use a symbol to reference the object in reality, we need to have a common understanding of the symbol, or else nothing is communicated since there are no common terms of reference to reality. Compared to complex cryptography, language is a pretty open system meant to convey meaning to people if they adopt that symbolic reference system of language. Language are “open source” for the most part, with anyone being able to learn them. Cryptography in terms of secrecy, is intended for the least amount of people to receive the message. This is the default nature of symbols, especially those symbols not taught as part of any structured language. They are images to represent certain things, and people are not taught what these general symbols mean. People are only taught the special specific grammar of their language, but not how language itself is structured and created to itself represent reality which is its purpose in the first place.: to communicate about what exists, reality.

Etymology is to know the meaning of symbols as far back as we can trace them in history, as they were intended to mean and as they were imbued with meaning. These symbols themselves trace back to reality to represent aspects of being (metaphysics) in reality. Reality itself is represented in symbols. To know the meaning of a word is to know what it represents in reality. We could name any part of reality anything we want, but we would have to create a new language. Existing languages already have definition with meaning imbued into it, we cannot simply redefine words. Attempts to do so can create confusion with the use of the same term to represent reality differently. To go back to the etymological root and learn the true meaning of a word is to establish firm grounding between the symbols we use and the reality they represent. Conventions from society do sometimes impose altered meaning on the words to change what they originally mean. It is true that people using the same word to refer to the same thing will have a common understanding of what they are referring to, but the original meaning and power of the word is lost to them, they are using it in a different and altered way than it was originally created and imbued with meaning to convey. This creates an alteration in the descriptive capabilities of reality. The alteration can be to improve the detail and clarity of a definition, but can often be to distort and obfuscate the true power of the name to reference reality and understand reality correctly.

Etymology shows the true original meaning, purpose and intention of a word, which can show how a word has been altered to conform to the conventional imposition, or “newspeak” meaning, to control perception of reality, the social engineering control of the mind. Etymology is not foolproof, but it’s better than blindly accepting the definition from conventional society. Those who write history, create history, invent reality, and the same is true with any book that people use as an axiomatic foundation for understanding reality: dictionaries. If they used the altered form that has been bred into convention through imposition of clever social engineering, an aspect of reality becomes veiled. You can’t rely on etymology to automatically tell you the meaning, like a dictionary either, sometimes there is more to the story. How far back does the meaning go? Etymology can show you a more accurate source for the meaning a word as it was created, than it was later modified to mean in order to obfuscate its original meaning and true power in understanding reality through language. Sometimes words have dual meaning as well, that seem to be opposed.

If you just use a word as you want, or as social convention has dictated, then what is the point in the true original meaning of a word? We can’t just refer part of reality to any word symbol without any consideration for the original meaning it conveyed about reality. In doing so, we lose the original representation of reality in place of this new definition of reality. Maybe it’s for the better, but maybe it’s for the worst. The latter is the case most of the time.

Limitation

The more words exist to describe specific aspects of reality, the better, more easily, we can understand reality with symbols. The less words, then the more ambiguous the definition, with multiple meanings applying for one word because not enough words exist for specific references.

“The basic tool for the manipulation of reality is the manipulation of words. If you can control the meaning of words, you can control the people who must use the words.”
– Philip K. Dick

If you impose limitations on the amount of words people have in their vocabulary, you essentially restrict their ability to describe reality in more specific and detailed ways in order to understand it more deeply. We are dumbed down through restriction in consciousness by this specific method. I recall high school, and reading books while others did not, and I would speak with certain vocabulary that others did not recognize, simply because I enlarged my understanding of reality through more complex words. They in turn viewed me as “smart” and “intelligent”, which I was in normal standards as well, being good in math. But the expansion of the vocabulary can have direct impacts on the ability to expand the mind. If you limit vocabulary you limit your mind. Limit words, limit the definition of reality, limit the ability to identify reality accurately, and you limit understanding reality.

“The limits of my language mean the limits of my world.”
– Ludwig Wittgenstein

This is the point behind “newspeak” in Orwell’s 1984, to obfuscate and confuse the meaning of reality and limit the degree of conception we can invoke from it, thereby limiting consciousness and keeping it under control, mind control.

What is the vocabulary people normally use to talk about things? What are they even talking about? People can seem to talk about something but actually talk about nothing. They talk about appearances instead of substance that matters. Facts are useless in themselves. The meaning that is derived from the facts is what matters. Everything simply existing is simply existing, a fact. Our ability to correspond and correlate the various aspects of reality is what allows us to develop deeper understanding of reality and ourselves. We can extract the essence of being from things from within our consciousness, and attribute meaning to them as distinct parts of existence.

Reality has many things in it. Those who do not understand the meaning of those things, do not understand reality as much as others who do understand meaning in things. For example, people will look at the Washington monument, and think nothing of it, while others will recognize some occult hidden meaning, such as the phallic worship of the obelisk. One person was ignorant of the meaning of the thing, while the other actually understood the meaning behind it existing. The most important occulted information is about human consciousness and specifically our behavior, and the Natural Moral Laws governing the consequences of our behavior.

Words are not created at random. Many words interconnect and tell a story of relationships about reality. Reality is interconnected in correlated components that are organized in certain ways. Language describes reality, as is composed of similarly. If you want to come to know and understand reality better, know and understand the language you use to describe reality. Know the common base of the words we use to communicate so we can be on the same page of understanding our terms.

We have some powers when in comes to reality: reality defining vs. reality creating. We have the power to abstract from the objects in reality and find meaning. We also have the power to manufacture artificially created objects from what preexists in nature. Delusions of consciousness bring us to create great evil in attempts to control and dominate whatever preexists in the world that is not ourself, as we think we can take ownership of anything that exists, any living being, even other’s exactly like us: human animals.

A word is a word. You can’t just take any word and apply it to anything in reality. You could only do that if you invented the word, but you can’t do that to a word that already exists, already has a definition and meaning, and already points to something in reality. Even those who create a new word in a language now, it is always based in some root derivative. Some people want to alter the meaning of words, and get us to accept altered definitions with more limited, restricted or controlled understanding of reality through specific word usage, which is our vocabulary. If we only use a certain limited number of words to communicate about reality, naturally, our understanding of reality will also be limited. Our consciousness will not evolve, and we will remain restricted from higher order thought capabilities.

 

3.6 Reality, Unreality and Magic

Reality exists, unreality does not. The unreality of the imagination of our consciousness can become manifested into the reality that does exist. The chair in consciousness can be made from an existing tree. The unreality of the imaginal realm can manifest as reality in a positive sense. Unreality can also manifest to create an unreal reality, an illusory reality, which is ultimately a negative for us.

We can accept the conceptual beliefs others suggest and influence us with through convincing sophistry, and we agree to ally and unite under this common idea within our consciousnesses created from someone’s imaginal realm. Money is created, government is created, religion is created, etc. Money is nothing but paper and belief in a value. Government is nothing but people assuming power that others give them, but the government doesn’t exist anywhere as an actual thing, it is only an aggregate grouping. Religion is the same as government.

These are concepts in consciousness, that are given power and manifested into reality, as unreal reality, from the unreality of the imaginal realm. We created these illusions in our world. They are not self-existing substances. They are products of sorcery, invented in the disconnection from reality, Truth and Morality. These products were sold to the consciousnesses of people. These products are spells cast onto the mind through clever symbolic vibratory “magic” (speaking words of a language, or other symbolism such as writing). The spells of sophistry that had us create our own enslavement were convincing, but we are the one who buy into the products of the mind others are selling. Why? Because just as these manipulative sorcerers are not aligned with reality, Truth and Morality to not do evil, we are also not aligned with reality, Truth and Morality to know how to not be deceived by evil, and we willingly walk onto the wrong path thinking we are doing “right”.

This is the “economy” of consciousness, where masters of manipulation harness our universal constructibility energy and direct it along preselected avenues of false choice and control. It starts off in mandatory indoctrination centers for the youth, school. This creates a false-self pattern-attachment through impressions, impositions and influence in society to integrate, “unite” and optimize survival. The program eventually becomes automated and self-directed towards the progression of the sorcerers agenda.

This is the mind control “magic” that exists in any language and communication about reality. Anyone can fool you if you let them. Learn. Evolve consciousness. Take the power of consciousness back by understanding reality to greater depths of clarity. Magic is “to be able”, “to have power”, etymologically. It is a direction of energy, manifesting in an ability or power. Sorcerers use their knowledge of reality to gain power over it and others. Develop your power of consciousness and become a magician, someone that accurately understands reality and shares this understanding with others to help them navigate reality correctly as well. Sorcerers take their accurate understanding of reality and pervert it to manipulate others to their own selfish benefit. “Magic” is achieved through the power and ability of understanding reality. Language is the tool of magicians. It goes “dark” when someone misconstrues the symbols referencing reality to create an unreality as though it were reality. This is the sorcery of manipulating our secondary subjective perception of reality through word symbols and the imagery they induce in consciousness.

 

3.7 The Power of Definition – Master of a Name

In the mini-series called Earthsea (2004) that I watched many years ago, an aspect of magic is that of knowing the name of something is to be a master of it. The main character sought to know the names of creatures in order to control and stop their evil with his magical abilities. In language, magic, to know the true name, meaning and definition for an aspect of reality is to be master of it, and not be subject to it under its power as a spell on your mind, cast in sorcery, to mind control you. Basic word symbol concepts are required to build more complex structures in our mind which represent reality, from the individual particular objects in reality to the common universals that link particulars together. If our conceptual blocks are falsely representing reality, it greatly affects the way we perceive and think of reality, and it affects our ability to navigate reality correctly.

Why and how do we have this power to master things? Where did this idea come from? Humans have higher order consciousness capabilities. We have the capability to abstract and define particular aspects of reality. We have the power to assign meaning and purpose through definition. That is the power to recognize identity within the diversity, variability and multiplicity of existence, universe and reality. This is the power of Logic, non-contradictory identification of reality. Everything in our reality operates within the Law of Logic, everything is what it is and it not another, identity and non-contradiction. There are no contradictions in the universe. This is the power we have to master a thing by knowing its true name (i.e. meaning). We have the power to identify specific meanings and purposes to provide a definition through symbols that reference reality. This is how we can come to master an understanding of reality. Without the abstraction and inference of consciousness to decipher and derive (derivation, differentiation, deduction) symbols from reality, there would simply be everything as one amalgamation, no difference, no different names to refer to different things, there would be no communication about anything.

Those who first create the name, who first create the definition and meaning, seem to set the grounds for understanding reality within a specific referential framework (language). The power is gained from the correct knowledge of the meaning of a symbol, its definition. That enables mastery over the name, the symbol that represents reality. We look into etymology to find the true meaning of words. Knowledge is imbued and encoded in words. They are symbols about reality. Those who first created the symbols, imbued them with specific meaning and definition. That was their original power. Over time the true meaning gets altered, and the power of the word is affected. We cannot know the true meaning, and we cannot be the master. Knowing the true name of a symbol is to know the true meaning and definition of its representation in reality, what it is that symbol really representing about reality, what it is it really saying. When we know that, then we have the power of the word symbol in our grasp, in our hands, in our possession, in ownership, in mastery, we become a master of the word symbol to reference reality accurately, master of the name and in greater mastery of understanding reality. To accept an altered meaning of a word is to not use it in its original meaning and definition, in its original power as it was created. That is where the sorcerers spell is created, when we accept symbol references to objective reality that then create a subjective unreality (secondary reality) and prevents us from seeing the world as it really is.

The symbols are arbitrary and can be anything to represent reality. But once a symbol is created, it is imbued with meaning. We can correctly or incorrectly understand reality and create symbols to represent something that is or is not, that does or doesn’t exist or should not exist like something evil or immoral. A circle does not represent a square. A square circle does not exist. Basic symbols have objective meaning in themselves with certain degrees of freedom of subjective meaning through imposition from the creator. Images in the mind that referenced reality can be referenced through symbols. The symbols themselves can also imitate the appearance of objects in reality. The more abstract the symbols, such as those of words, the more differential is the imitation displayed, i.e. it looks less like an object in reality, and more altered in form/shape, altered by our mind and created as a symbol. Those symbols that look most like something in reality, say a circle, can be likened to the sun, as it is the most important circle for life, or other circular references we can correspond. Other qualities can be decoded from the circle in reference to reality. Basic symbols can combine to become sigils, more complex symbols. Basic shapes can be altered and distorted to create new shapes and symbols. Languages are made of symbols of abstraction to represent reality. It is like the imagery of magic we have from fictional works, where they create all these symbols and say some magical words, and that gives them special powers. I don’t know if that aspect of reality is authentic or not, but it is definitely symbolic for the power of language itself, the regular symbols we use, yet this allegory from fiction escapes us all.

Mind is powerful. Words are powerful. Spells on mind are powerful mind control. With the magic of spells (words) you can get people to accept falsity as truth, and get them to do what you want. One spell alone isn’t much to alter our sense and understanding of reality, but in this secondary reality of our minds many spells are a powerful sorcery magic to manipulate us. Learning the true meaning (etymology) of words in our language can empower us with a more accurate understanding of reality through how we communicate about it in our own self-dialog, and the dialog we have with others. Accepting the definitions and stories from others can lead us down false paths. It is wise to verify the terms and definitions that form the various concepts we encounter, otherwise we are prone to be fooled, duped, conned, triked, deceived, manipulated, hoodwinked, bamboozled, etc. and accept belief without substance.

Thinking about Reality

General Grammar is a systematic method of gathering raw data of a similar nature into a body of knowledge, known as a subject, or study. Formal logic is the method of bringing full or intimate understanding to that body of knowledge. Grammar is like learning the alphabet, you are not sure what all these symbols mean, and you just take them in at first. First we observe and then gather and compile those observations into an organized database (grammar). Second, we process (logic) the data input, remove contradiction so that everything fits and follows from another. Thirdly, find some value and meaning to derive some use in it for our lives and what we do, our output (rhetoric) to express understanding into the world. We see, then conceptualize, then speak/do/act. Grammar uses the 5 senses to look at the individual parts and establish clear terms, logic thinks, filters/validates and fits the data together to form true premises, and rhetoric expresses that knowledge in a valid argument. A good reason to learn about the Trivium is because some people sell lies and most of us other people can’t discern correctly and buy into those lies.

“We’ve been fooled into mis-prioritizing what is most precious. When we fail to exercise our choice- to think or not to think- we become our own oppressors.”
– Trivium Study Guide, p.15

The 3 parts of the Trivium are somewhat mirrored in the 3 ways of developing thought, the 3 basic pieces of how we express knowledge, 3 basic modes of human cognition. The first modality of developing thought and expressing pieces of knowledge is the mythological and poetic mode of literary-story-narrative communication, using analogical descriptions to elucidate reality. It is creative, imaginative, and uses imagery to convey messages. It is ambiguous. The second modality in human cognition is the philosophic mode that employs greater logical methodologies to explain reality. The third modality is the scientific mode that uses the scientific method to gain knowledge and understanding of reality through experimentation (empiricism).

Mythology is about thought, speech, stories, and narrative. Mythopoeic pertains to creating those myths. Myths are stories to relate abstract ideas from our minds. We take phenomena seen in nature and try to explain it through personification of phenomena. Take a thought you cannot actualize, and produce a mythology by relating it to an aspect of reality you can communicate. Turn the general idea into a personified object that doesn’t really exist in objective reality. A fake mythology of society can also be created, where people are expected to accept it and not argue with this normalized narrative about ourselves, how we got here, how “good” things are, etc. The methods of mythology and poetics are of metaphor and simile, analogical comparisons. The analogies compare gathered data, from the universe and ourselves, against each other, to find similarity. This is the first and least structured of the 3 modalities. Keep this in mind when you read “history”, and the way people may have thought back then, in a mythopoeic narrative story-telling to metaphorically try to explain things, or invent a “history” of how they got to where they were. We can learn a lot from fictional allegories about our current reality provided in obfuscated means as to allow the allusions to be drawn by the receiver of the message. Though lacking refinement of symbol and logic to explain reality, the creative narrative is the basic method of conveying concepts, and is also a second basic form of cryptography (apart from the default of language itself), where representations in reality are not conveyed through their own word symbol, but through another symbol that needs to be interpreted to be understood as a reference to something else. This is imagery, a basic component of human consciousness.

The philosophic mode (Love of Wisdom – Care for Truth and Morality) goes beyond the basic grammatical organization of the mythopoeic first level creative capacities. As knowledge and symbolism were built up in certain sectors using the first modality through story, song and drama of verbal communication, there comes a limit to the amount of information that can be shared this way, as it depends on the memory and consciousness of the people sharing and interacting. The invention of symbols to store language outside of consciousness helped to spread knowledge. When enough data was written down, it could be better and more efficiently collated through synthesis and analysis. Philosophy progressed from the analogical to the logical form of thought, where phenomenon were looked at within their own nature, their own category of being, rather than inexact analogous comparisons of bare objects, events or phenomena. We look at things in themselves: something does what it does because of what it is (identity, causality), not because of how it relates to other things (analogy). Logic is used to detect and filter contradictions in the observations we coalesce.

Trivium-Balance-v2-50Metaphysics helps us answer ‘what is’ regarding the matter of existence, the grammar knowledge. Epistemology looks at how do we know ‘what is’ using the mind, a theory of knowledge, the logic processing. Ethics and aesthetics looks at what do we do and how do we do it, the rhetorical wisdom of right-action. The purpose of philosophy is to answer the ethics and aesthetics of what to do in life, a moral philosophy, which brings us to the third modality of thought to understand reality with greater accuracy: the scientific method. This method can verify observations and phenomena by repeating a process of verification. It can help guide us in determining what is true or false, and therefore help in reality and morality (Natural Moral Law).

The scientific method is based in the previous aspects, but with more verification in physical reality to confirm the conclusion. Observe, gather data, and ask questions about reality and hypothesize some answers through intuitive induction, then deduce an experiment to demonstrate the most accurate hypothesis, and finally conduct the experiment in reality to corroborate the accuracy of the hypothesis and validate a theory. There are causal links between actions and effects that are detectable over time and will be seen with repeated demonstration. Overall, the scientific method is intended to demonstrate our hypothetical propositions about reality.

The Trivium components of grammar and logic are used to help distinguish objective existence from the unreality created in our minds. Reality is made of primary particular individual substances. Sub-stance has the thing that stands, that is perceivable with 5 senses in reality, and there is the thing that describes it, the subtext, universals, Natural Laws, etc.

First we develop a mythological person story (1st phase), then look more and ask questions about it, (2nd phase philosophical, epistemological), then manipulate or reproduce the substance (3rd phase, science, experiment, demonstrate) by looking at subtext (universal) to see how complete our explanation is, then output into demonstration in objective reality to reproduce or modify the thing that stands, substance, along with the subtext universal, such as a Natural Law, that we have been able to discover in the progression of memory knowledge within ourselves or of humanity as a whole.

The logic and grammar helps us to look at things more closely, to look for answers and get closer to the natural proper explanation of these universals that exist and are manifesting through the natural world. The Trivium helps the development of subjective thought processes, along with trying to make the discoveries of Nature’s Laws, and continually trying to align our thoughts with these Laws. Using the Trivium Method, mostly grammar and logic, helps us to put undifferentiated related data on a subject together in order to come to an understanding. It is taking a complex set of ideas and removing contradictions so that one thing follows from another as a coherent, integrated, unified and harmonized whole. Think properly, think for yourself. Start to question what you have been told. Find out what is in reality and what things mean.

07-degree-frequency-sideviewLogic brings the internal subjective realm into alignment with the objective rhythm of reality to produce harmonious external manifestations. Logic helps us find and verify Truth. Over our lives we learn to synchronize our expressions of consciousness with objective reality. Contradictions need to be removed to produce harmony with reality, otherwise we can end up living in subjective realities that are not true reflections of what is happening in the world. Not knowing about possible dangers in reality is dangerous for our own well-being, hence why the knowledge of evil is paramount to Truth and Morality and creating the world we want. Deduction helps to provide additional proof to validate a conception through comparison and correspondence to objective reality. From the higher level concept we follow a self-consistent chain of causal relation to deduce back down to foundational concepts or axioms. The secondary level constructs need to be related to the primary foundational constructs that hold everything up in our understanding of reality. If there are contradictions, there is a problem. Some foundational axioms are consciousness, causality and existence itself. Proper effective use of logic maintains grounding in reality while allowing imagination and inductive intuition to formulate new ideas and then validating that search for knowledge through deduction. We need to dissect our own and other’s thoughts and expressions, and point out the contradictions and errors in understanding reality or themselves, that is the only way to find the truth accurately. As we bring our thoughts, emotions and actions into greater alignment with Truth and Morality, we evolve consciousness in greater degrees as well.

Consciousness Addendum

(continued from previous articles on the subject: here and here)

Consciousness is primarily a term that relates to knowledge and morality, as I previously demonstrated through etymology. There is another form of alleged “consciousness” (so-called) we can conceive of, the “ALL” pervasive “omnipotent” “omnipresent” “consciousness” of the “ONE” that underlies everything, the “one mind”. From this different imagined “consciousness”, everything, even rocks, are “consciousness”, and the word becomes meaningless to talk about from our perspective we live in or from the etymology itself. Just as rocks are made of this underlying consciousness, so too are plants, animals and all matter. Plants are living biological matter, like animals, but they don’t have what is considered consciousness as the word was created in etymology. We should not engage in this false equivocation of the “all consciousness” when talking about the expressive consciousness of many species of animal kind, of mobility in action and behavior of expressing consciousness, of memory in storing specific knowledge, of recall of memory, in understanding word symbols, etc. Animals are animals, plants are plants. Humans are a step above the rest of the animals in consciousness capabilities and potential, and our symbolic understanding far exceeds the rest, while others excel in sight, hearing, taste, sensation, etc. Our excellence is in consciousness itself, which we can develop and harness for good or evil, or let go to waste in unmanifested potential and value.

Here is a breakdown of 3 basic levels of “consciousness” that various biological life forms can be said to express. Each successive level has the preceding level as part of it, like a species-genera loop if you are familiar with metaphysics (which will be presented partially later).

  1. Direct sense experience, one stimulus and one automatic response. No memory. All life has this aspect. There is not conscious knowledge stored and recalled, but more of a response or alteration of basic survival programming to maximize longevity and existence of being. Genetic information is knowledge of a kind, but not the conscious knowledge that progresses in the evolution towards real consciousness, as the word really means. This level 1 is a base pre-consciousness that all biological life has.
  2. Perception, memory. Awareness of things, entities, existents in physical universe, not the abstract existents. Percept is automatic: open your eyes, hear a sound, feel wind on your skin. Memory through perception stores sense-experiences and this allows for learning from the past, from trial and error and integrating various experiences. Most animals have this capacity (if not all?) and we can see them demonstrate it in reality with our own senses, we don’t need technology to sense things beyond our given tools for existence to see the reality of basic animal consciousness and knowledge they possess.
  3. Conceptual abstraction. Generalize one or more similar instances from particular retained memories, which is to identify universals. Green can be abstracted from frogs, leaves, grass, etc. The concept is communicated as a symbolic reference to reality. Abstractions can be compounded to build higher order, deeper, conceptual understanding of reality. Humans are the animal known to possess this capacity to the greatest degree. I would say some animals can process commonalities and differences in reality, and recognize a similar color, shape, sound, smell. Animals differ in degree of consciousness expressive capability in thought, emotion and action. Humans can express these three modalities to the greatest degree.

You could look at all the biological consciousness being the same, and the limitations are imposed by the biological life form unit that hosts the consciousness. If you do so, then plants are still not animals. Humans are animals, but with even more freedom of will and capacity to express consciousness, while other animals are in varying degrees of restriction in consciousness compared to us. But, animals are not plants. If you were stuck in a plant, then you don’t have eyes, or ears, you don’t interact with reality like animals do. You are food for the existence of animals to be possible. This is a primary purpose of plants in this alleged progression in evolution of consciousness, for without plants no animal life would possibly exist. After plants, come various degrees of animals, and it seem humans have the greatest potential to manifest in reality through the expressions of their consciousness. So, if you choose to look at the “ALL consciousness”, minerals are at the bottom, then plants, then animals. You cannot fallaciously equivocate plants with animals, nor either of those with minerals. If we could simply eat something else other than plants and spare their limited consciousness and let them continue existing, then we could do that, and it would be more “right” to do so. As reality is demonstrated to all, though, plants are required to sustain animal life as we currently know it. Maybe human animals can evolve beyond this to breatharianism, or some such thing. We have this greater capacity for thought in consciousness, and we have greater that comes with that capacity, great power for evil or good. With great power comes great responsibility. Morality is a primary purpose in evolving consciousness. We are responsible to Truth and Morality as higher order consciousness beings.

Control, Conformity and Irresponsibility

We need to do this work of developing our thought capacity. The current society creates strong co-dependence with overspecialization in many aspects of life, from our jobs, to specific knowledge and media exposure that promotes less thinking and less depth of thought. The specialization on certain aspects of human constructs for living in falsity, or distractions and pleasure, focuses attention away from other more meaningful aspects of ourselves and the world. There are not enough generalists to look at the bigger picture as people are limited in their scope and input of knowledge. The selective media input and superficial concern with physical presentation, with cosmetics, keeps people infatuated with the many appearances and idolatry in the media, keeping them titillated or numbed and unconcerned with developing their higher order consciousness capacities in thought.

People get stuck in the appearance of particulars, over the substance of meaning and definition found in the essential substance underlying it all which would allow them to see the deceptive illusions for what they are and also the clarity to get back to the Right Path and Way. The overspecialization and restriction of ways of living can be seen in the caste system: to divide people into specific aspects of life and require each other to complete the overall system’s functionality that serves the overlords. This includes basic survival mechanisms being removed from the individual. This is the co-dependence and enslavement through coerced economic survivability. Movies like Divergent display this explicitly, and how the compartmentalization of aspects of living divided people within themselves and prevented them from actualizing themselves. The one who had all 5 aspects was deemed a threat to the existing social order as they were non-conformist. They had more aspects of living authentic. Overspecialization breeds weakness and devolution, in general, through the removal of adaptability of the individual.

Related to specialization is the resulting compartmentalization that comes from focusing on only certain things. This leads to a lack of responsibility as a whole, as then we only need to be focusing on our jobs, and what we want, desire or wish for in life. Only do what you think and feel you need to. Only do what your specific job requires. Let other people do their jobs. Don’t defend yourself, there is a job for that, police take care of that for you. Don’t prepare food for yourself, there is a job for other people to do that for you. Don’t grow your own food, there are jobs for people to do that for you…

Hmmm…. there is a problem, but the people in the jobs are busy and can’t deal with the problem. I guess we do nothing and wait, wait for someone else to take up the responsibility according to their job. When there is a problem, we can just hold someone else accountable. We don’t have to deal with it, it’s not our job, it’s not our compartment, that’s for the politicians or policemen, etc. This laziness from the workplace gets into regular life. Then we get to our enslavement, if you’re not a part of the system, you don’t have anything. If you are not part of the compartmentalization, then you do not have the opportunity to survive and must live on the street.

“It’s someone else’s job to fix the system and all the problems, not mine to go learn about reality.”

The one’s we are waiting for, are ourselves. The somebody to fix things, is you, me and all of us. Every person needs to learn and seek Truth to eventually find the depth of the moral baseline to live from in order to create True Freedom and Peace. Removal of wrong-doings, removal of errors, removal of evil, is more important than creating a bunch of things that will continue to distract us from ourselves, our behavior and how we create evil.

Importance of Thought

Thinking identifies aspects of reality and corresponds them with symbols to logically connect and communicate that knowledge. Thinking right, correctly and properly is to bring perceptions into alignment with reality. Recognizing wrongness is a result of comparison in reality and seeing a contradiction between things — something doesn’t fit.

Observe reality, process the data to form concepts, then verify the concepts for contradiction, and reach greater understanding. The conclusion about reality is tested through reference to reality and its facts therein, and can be confirmed by others once this understanding is expressed to them.

The Trivium Method is likened to Alchemy and Natural Moral Law Expressions of Behavior, as previously mentioned in Part 1. These models can help us learn about ourselves and reality in order to Evolve Consciousness. Through proper thought, in contemplation, reflection, concentration, and true meditation of the mental imagery that exists within us, we can accurately model the actions and relationships before they happen, and predict what the result of specific behavior will be (synderesis). We don’t have to keep repeating the same actions, the same mistakes. This process is pro-active and requires the focus of the free will to choose to engage in it. It is not automatic impressions as is the initial perceptual apprehension of reality. This pro-active conscious awareness of reality through the imagery in our minds, will lead to greater evolution in consciousness.

Thinking is important. It provides for the acquisition of knowledge. Knowledge that is hidden, occulted knowledge, often creates a power differential between those who have the knowledge and those who don’t. With quality thinking and judgments on the information we receive, we can retain the quality knowledge and use them to guide our decisions for living, our actions and behaviors. The quality of knowledge derived from understanding reality and ourselves will lead to a greater quality of life. Truth leads to freedom. People can be prevented from thinking properly and making sound judgments by restricting information and occulting it. This is a method to dumb people down as it undermines their ability to make knowledgeable decisions in life. Their capacity to develop intellectual self-defense is manipulated and stifled by garbage information. People are easily fooled by false information because they do not know how to validate it correctly. To develop our capacity for thought and discernment of reality is to help increase the degree of certainty we have, to distinguish reality from unreality/fiction.

 

This topic of occulting reality, encrypting it, will be in Part 3. This is why we must think better, because there are master manipulators of thought who have spent much time developing their capacity of thought.

01-Trivium-Base(Trivium)

1.1 – Trivium in Reality

The Trivium consists of grammar, logic and rhetoric, the first 3 of the 7 Liberal Arts. The Trivium is the art and science of the mind/consciousness, a method to train the mind to learn and think more correctly. The Quadrivium consists of arithmetic, geometry, musical theory, and astronomy, the latter 4 parts of the 7 Liberal Arts. The Quadrivium is the art and science of matter and by extension measurement. Our minds and the matter around us are the realities we exist in. One formulates a subjective map, and the other is the objective territory. The trivium method is to help us discover specific and universal truths, about the universe and ourselves. Learning about the trivium refines and enhances our innate methodology for living, of input, processing and output, or knowledge, understanding and wisdom. The development of the liberal arts is to gain the competency to explore reality for ourselves and free our minds from ignorance through the understanding of reality.

Particulars,-Universals,-Grouping-and-Symmetry-Order50The map we can detail well, like the focused perspective on the trees and particulars we can get a close look at. The territory, however, the bigger wider picture, consists of hidden aspects of reality that can be difficult to detect or discover, but can be arrived at in time with thought and percepts of the senses. The undetectable aspects are extended through technology to permit the senses to perceive them and discover. There are events and subprocess that occur outside our sense perception, but those that are relevant to our well-being are comprehensible with our direct sense perception of reality and contemplation in thought. The map we create is a particular perspective of the objective territory of reality. We can see all the details we have in the map, but we can’t see all the details in the territory as there are many aspects that are hidden to us. We can progressively discover some parts of the vast array of hidden components that are part of the universe. Many of these have been discovered in the scientific technological pursuit, such as gravity. The important hidden and unseen Laws can be known, and they do not require technology. The most important one would be the Natural Moral Laws regarding the consequences to our behaviors.

Trivium-Balance-50The Trivium Method is an efficient way to model or map the territory of reality. It is not 100% or perfect, as nothing is. The use of the tool will improve as the user learns to master it. I have found the Trivium is a methodology that mirrors the intuitive natural processes of conceiving, understanding and navigating reality. Understanding the methodology more clearly brings one to understand how we function internally as a unity of consciousness as well, in addition to understanding reality more capably.

The functionality of the Trivium Method, Natural Law Expressions, and Alchemy, is to better understand how behavior, life and reality function. All these tools are part of life, but we don’t know them by these names, and don’t understand the depth and clarity of the processes at work within and without us. If we choose to learn about reality and ourselves, we can learn about how to live a proper life without creating evil.

These tools of better living (Natural Law, Trivium, and Alchemy) are part of life, for human consciousness. They are automatic processes that we intuitively develop as part of existing as higher order consciousness beings. I learned the trivium actively by learning logic more, but earlier learned grammar, not through theory and proper Language Arts courses, but intuitively through reading books. These faculties of grammar, logic and rhetoric are a natural part of learning about reality and communicating about it to others. To learn it more in-depth enhances and further develops the ability to understand reality and express it to others.

When you learn a language and how it works, and use it, you learn the inherent principles of its syntax and special grammar intuitively, and also of the general grammar of language reflecting reality. If you take the time to learn it logically, learn its structure and components in conscious awareness, then you can expand your power of how the language is created and arranged to convey meaning. I learned how to use language intuitively, and have made my work from this learning. I didn’t know what a predicate was, or other terms, but it didn’t prevent me from putting out material of logical consistency. Now I understand the power of language more, but it doesn’t change my use of the language that I have already been using, as logic (non-contradiction) structured my understanding.

For example, knowing a list of fallacies won’t help you much, you probably won’t really understand or even know how to apply them properly. I have had this done to me, it is amusing in a way to see how people think they understand a particular fallacy, or even how something is a fallacy. I have learned how to think and can spot irrational errors in reasoning, even if I don’t know the name of a fallacy or its particular pattern. Errors in thought are detectable once you know how to think properly. Certain patters of error can be detected and labeled, as was done with fallacies.

The Trivium Method is a process of conscious awareness, i.e. thought, that is inherent in our pattern recognition of reality. This is what I say about learning the trivium myself without knowing it was the trivium, learning how to think myself, learning to contemplate, reflect, etc. We use trivium methodologies, true meditation/reflection/contemplation and alchemy all the time, but those of us who actively and consciously choose to work on and develop those tools will grow and better ourselves if we keep at it, keep walking the Path and Way to Truth and Morality. Alchemy, Trivium, Natural Law, and developed thought, contemplation/reflection/true meditation, are the methods to cultivate true intelligence and Evolve Consciousness.

It is automatic to use language once we learn it, it becomes a part of us. Think of how amazing it is, all these words, their sequences, their meaning and we do it automatically for the most part. Little conscious requirement is made to reference reality with a particular symbol once we learn it, it is instantaneous, then we recall the information for that symbol, then organize it all. What we learn often easily becomes part of how we live. The influence of what we take in can have great affect on us.

The Trivium is meant to develop clear and deliberate thought through life. Free your mind, do away with falsity and learn how to learn and how to think. Grammar, logic and rhetoric are terms for natural processes used to discover, navigate and reference reality. We gather data about reality, which is the input, grammar and induction. Then we filter through the collected information for valid data that brings clarity and greater understanding with the deduction and subtraction of material that is not valid. The foundation for our conception of reality comes from the construction of general grammar, as it is word symbols that form the language used to think and communicate.

Living under Natural Moral Law and understanding reality are linked. Before knowledge of Natural Law can be properly understood, the faculties in consciousness to perceive and process reality accurately must be developed. Otherwise, a limited depth of comprehension is reached due to limited reference to the reality to develop understanding. With these tools of learning developed more, Natural Law becomes more easily visible and correctly discernible. Without these tools developed enough, we only have the basics of understanding and navigating reality, and as such the ability to recognize Natural Moral Law is often clouded. To understand Natural Law properly, an understanding of the foundation for how we communicate and represent reality to each other (and ourselves) needs to be developed. This foundation is language, as language (symbol) is the means through which we express our understanding of reality. The more we can express reality through language, the more we will understand reality. The Trivium is an effective mechanism for understanding language and reality more deeply. If you want to understand reality more, then develop the use of the tools used to understand and navigate reality. Language is created to describe reality. Learn about language and words to understand more about the way we represent reality, and also if the symbols we use actually conforms to reality, or if we are being deceived through word alterations and fallacious reasoning.

 

1.2 – Grammar and Logic in Reality

Induction-Deduction-Logic-Spiral-50The feedback between thought and emotion is akin to feedback between inductive and deductive reasoning/logic. Grammar of initial thinking is inductive and intuitive, while derivation inference logic is deductive and possibly of a higher order. We abstract commonalities as possible universal truth and verify if indeed they are true or not by looking closer at the differences and again at more commonalities and so on. Emotions feedback with thoughts just as logic feeds back with grammar, and eventually they generate enough care to will ourselves into the motivation to act.

Induction cannot be separated from deduction in real life, as they both help us understand reality and are a part of living and making decisions. Logic is the art of valid inference. Inference is a thought process itself, but we seek valid thought. The study of the syllogism, deduction, is where we start to order our mind to tend to not accept contradictions, to be able to recognize contradictions as fallacies. Ex: there is an event that is induced into your experience, you identify a problem with the event through deductive inference. To form the solution you use induction. Your solution can be deduced by someone else to determine its validity. Deductions refine approximations to get closer to a detailed clarity and precision.

We can build a reality in the mind, an inner subjective multiverse running in parallel to the objective universe, from symbols or language, and in this way, a false reality can be created to act as an invisible prison and enslave our minds and the bodies that follow under them. Defining reality through symbols allows for understanding reality through a reference in consciousness. If people have different definitions for a symbol, they will be unable to communicate. Without definition, there is no separate identity, and no logic, and nothing is being talked about because everything would be one thing. Semantic arguments arise when misunderstanding in terms (definitions) are used that create divergent pathways in the road of communication and understanding. The only way two people can go along the same path, to be on the same page, is to have the same terms defined, otherwise misunderstanding develops. As our understanding of reality diverges from what reality is, we can end up living in subjective altered realities that are not accurate representations of the world we live in.

No one needs to learn the structure of grammar explicitly in order to speak and communicate. They don’t need to learn logic explicitly either, at least for the basics to get around and survive, but logic is more complex than most people can intuitively develop because they do not spend much time thinking and developing thought on their own. Grammar involves logic, inductive logic, which is intuitive in nature, trying to find the universal similar or dissimilar things. Logic is an underlying Law in creation, in reality. In order for grammar to exist, logic is an inherent part. When you learn to reference reality to symbols such as language, you can then communicate aspects of reality to others. All you need to understand is the relation of words to reality. You will use grammar without knowing it, and will use logic without knowing it, these are part of the basics for living and interaction with other beings. For the grammar to exist, logic had to exist — the Law of Logic and Identity was established before components existed in creation to be formed into non-contradictory parts. Logic, (logos) is an inherent part of reality, a Law that underlies all creation. To represent reality, the principle of non-contradiction, of identity, is applied in all aspects of existence, including communication. Everything is what it is and is not another (diversity, multiplicity, variability). To create a grammar of sound symbols, logic is already underlying it all through the reality that is referenced in the symbol. Over all the logical organization (non-contradiction, identity) of reality is the grammar objects (symbols) of the world that inherently have definition/meaning, regardless of our ability to describe it, which our own use of logic will help us uncover. The better we get at using logic, the more accurately we will be able to discern reality from unreality, actual truth from possible belief. Then you can establish firm foundations that separate the truth based on facts, from what is probable and possible as belief but not yet known to be true or false.

Correspondence-of-Info-50Understanding reality is the processing of identity, definition and meaning in reality. Our consciousness is made to recognize pattern and meaning, which is part of correspondence. Developing our capacity to use what is referred to as grammar and logic will help us to understand reality in greater degrees of accuracy. Grammar and logic underlie our conceptual framework for imagination and perception of what is. Sorcerers cast spells using the science and art of magical imagery to influence our minds towards falsity, they manipulate our perceptions/conceptions of reality through words and symbols we use to communicate about reality.

The words that are fed to us represent our understanding of reality and the ability to reference it. If you manipulate the words people use to construct their understanding of reality, you can manipulate them in that construct of reality they believe in. If you limit the words people have to describe reality, you also have the same effect upon them. This is mind control. This is the foundation of magic as I see it. The science of imagery and the mind, casting spells on the minds of people with word symbols to create a reality in their mind, a false map that misrepresents the territory. When you get people to buy into your version of reality, you can modify their behavior to conform to this model of reality, and this is the manifestation of the spell from one mind to another and into reality itself through the actions people engage in.

We all learn words inductively, intuitively, and know when and where to use them appropriately in the future through the pattern recognition of past word communications. I developed an elaborate vocabulary in high school because I read more than my friends. I could use words in the right context, although it would be hard for me to define those words as I never learned their exact definition, I only learned what they meant inductively through reference to reality in the context of what I read. The context the word was surrounded by provided the meaning in this automatic intuited learning of language. This is how we all learn about references in reality though symbols in language. We are mostly intuitively learning definitions, as words are used to reflect reality in our communication and thought. If we look into their true meaning we can better understand the words that are being used, if others use them correctly, rather than try to intuit and interpret the symbols meaning as per the context of the person using it.

Existing things are aspects of being and they stand out in reality. These are substances, actions, attributes and relationships that mirror the grammatical nouns, verbs, adjective/adverb and prepositional phrases. General Grammar refers to the way you think, the organizing of symbols to make sense of reality, the way of initially ordering multiple thoughts. Secondary components to general grammar act as glue for the primary components mentioned above that represent existents in reality. These secondary glues are modifiers, prepositions, conjunctions, interjections, and articles that are used to connect existing things in thought. Grammar represents the building blocks for thought. A sentence is a subject and a predicate, something spoken about (subject) and what is said of the thing spoken about (predicate). Two thoughts form a sentence. Multiple thoughts form writings, essays, etc.

Grammar is the automatic way consciousness first interacts with the environment, by receiving input. A subject, and the predicate that says something about the subject, are the first symbolic representations of thought and meaning. Data about something can define the (1) acting or relating subject (nouns, modifiers), the (2) actions or relationships (verbs, propositions, modifiers), and the (3) object being acted upon or related to. Grammar is the inductive process of identifying and gathering data of a similar nature, kind, class, etc. This data is converted into correspondences to produce knowledge about a particular subject of reality. The senses provide us with data, but we need to make sense of it all.

Similarly to how we gather data on particulars in reality to uncover the similar nature and universals behind things, there are unique and singular moments and events (particulars), but their type, kind, class, genera and universal is not unique and singular, as the type has been particularized previously. The universal gets reused again and again into unique experiences of that type. There are repeating aspects to reality, and repeated behavior, and thus repeated history. We can learn from our mistakes and preserve this knowledge, not only in our own memory, but in symbolic data representation in the physical world for others to learn from as well, which are books (liber, libre, liberty) and other mediums of preserving knowledge. Knowledge and its preservation inside and outside of memory, to not repeat the same behavioral errors, is what will free us from repetitive cycles of self-imposed suffering and enslavement. This and other knowledge is acquired through thought.
