Perspectives on being a Singularity.
Hello. I applied to join this community recently because I felt it would be the likeliest forum to discover any like minded individuals with which to begin conversations around the post-Empire world as utilising elements of infinite possibility could envision and create . I've been quietly observing many of the threads here and have decided that a post of my perspective may be the best way to start. So here it is, not definitively, but a start.
I do not personally experience a world in which 'reality' is a solid concept or perspective. I know that there are those who do and who oftentimes as a result believe that their ability to 'collectively' (superiority in numbers or the 'democratic rule') demonstrate a solid state of some kind or another indicates that these evidences prove a solid state more 'real' than that of others. I have so many personal experiences of why this isn't so that it made discussing such things with most 'solid state' adherents extremely difficult; this post is my first attempt to discuss such things and present my perspectives openly to others- outside my tiny intimacy circle- in almost 15 years. 'Solid state' ways of being to those that don't exist in it can be the equivalent of having acid poured over the nervous system and I simply decided, all them yars ago, not to experience it anymore; I'm coming out of my shell now (or more accurately, being lovingly kicked out) so here I am.
My understanding of how I work is this: there is no possible way for any other individual, of any species at all, to truly understand and agree with my experience because any such individual would have to literally become me to truly resonate with and understand my experience of Self. Currently in this physical dimension we do not even possess accurate ways of discerning if we perceive colour the same as the next individual: we can hear the word 'red' and all point to it but where is the *definitive proof* that we are all *experiencing* this 'red' the same way? (colourblindness not considered, and even with that there is no definitive proof that the individual is not simply experiencing 'red' differently, in another context).
Synesthesia demonstrates these ideas in a really beautiful way: no synesthete has exactly the same experience as another even when they share the same kind of synesthesia, which is only labelled thus because there are other, non-synesthete ways of experiencing the world: if all experienced synesthesia then discussions would have the potential to be mutual explorations- this is how *I* experience this, how is it for you?- rather than lumping the experience under the banner label 'synesthesia'. And therein is part of the base platform that I operate from, exploration and experience rather than definition.
We are all, in our Sui Generis existence, synesthetes uniquely experiencing this physical incarnation- and our experience of existence in any form or plane- in our eternally unique and Singular way. There may be areas of shared experience but that does not equate with shared perception and processing of these experiences- these will always remain unique to the individual, hence part of their irreproducable signal in the Field. The universal energy does not bother replicating *anything* exactly, as snowflakes and daisy fields can attest, so why would it be interested in creating Beings that can have identical responses? That, to me, is the idea of the Borg, which is redundant in a living, thriving Multiverse- not even bees are identical, they simply speak a base language together that allows them to work harmoniously.
Some of my questions are these: if, as a group that experiences itself as being of one species (a perspective I do not personally hold) there is incessant, insistent and oftentimes virilent/violent resistance to the idea that the universe may be nothing like what *we* personally experience/perceive it to be (as evidenced by the widely different experiences and perspectives of individuals around us), why in the name of everything interesting would *any other species* not interested in Borg like homogeny be keen to make public contact? How can anything truly evolutionary happen on this planet with so many individuals vigorously applying the rule of Solid State Anything and Everything to one another? What if the 'point' of existence in any form is to be a unique vessel for the infinitely possible, be it in substance form or the ability to create and run astounding thought/quantum reality experiments?
Within this infinitely rich and complex field, one of the few constants that I have found is choice- we are absolutely free to make whatever choices we wish, just as we are free to experience the consequences of those choices. Setting aside the choice to harm another, my personal view is that my choices are all about exploring who I/we am/are, wish to be, could possibly be and the way this influences/transforms our experience and perception, thus participating in an ever fluid and evolving feedback loop with the Field. To me this is a vastly more satisfying, wonderful and fun way of living than the pursuit of 'what is REAL', because I discovered as a child that my personal 'real' made other people scream at me and often beat me with things, oftentimes to the point of hospitalisation and on three occasions, life support. There is something deeply and profoundly dissonant with a species that is prepared to wage war, destroy their young, their future and their planet and generally engage in a massive propaganda campaign in the name of 'WE are right! YOU are wrong!'- so absolutely afraid of anything at all.
I will be perfectly honest- I have never identified as human, from the moment I could speak; I told my mother I wasn't 'from here', that I came from 'out there' (pointing to the sky and the ground simultaneously). Bad things happened as a result of this, which are not the subject of this post, but suffice to say I got a long and deep experience of just what some individuals will do when threatened with 'other'. Have things changed so little that even in such a place as this forum the need for 'rules of thought' or neatly defined experiences that fit in with the paradigms of the individual are so paramount that a subtle frequency representation of the intolerance I experienced as a child is still being espoused and practiced?
My simple question to this, given all that we have learned in the last 40 odd years, is- why does that need to be so? What is so threatening about another way of viewing/experiencing/perceiving things that it needs to be 'moderated', controlled, kept isolated and viewed as somehow inferior to something labelled 'rational'? As a Being whose family is entirely used to me being interrupted in conversation by *other* conversations with individuals unseen, as someone who stops in mid-sentence and stares off into space while getting information downloads, who talks in 'strange' languages during sleep, who frequently slips out of this dimensional experience and into others because I like to, just to name a few of the many 'non-rational' things I do- what category does this leave *me* in? Am I required to submit 'proof' for my experience, just as my teachers demanded I prove where I learned things from, because they couldn't comprehend how I could 'just know' things so I *obviously* must have been lying?
Can we do things another way? What if the foundational paradigm of a planetary consciousness was the preservation of the unique Singularity's experience, guarded and nurtured from pre-conception onwards? What if one of the paramount understandings was the absolute respect and fascination for the unique aspect of the universal hologram that each individual Being is a fractal aspect of? What if part of our way of Being was the desire to enrich our experience and perspective of the All by welcoming multiple and disparate ways of perceiving/experiencing everything, rather than the desire for containment, with a view to eliminating, anything 'other'?
This is the meaning behind my username, because my personal mission at this time is to sing the Songs for the Otherkind, those who experience their reality as non-human, Other, in whatever way that manifests, who are struggling within a miasm of rigidity and 'solid state' that tries to stifle and smother the knowing within so that these perspectives are silenced. I am not bothered by the desire of those who need/want/prefer/enjoy Solid State because at this point I can *choose* to not participate in that space if I'm not interested in it in that moment, just as others can choose not to participate in mine.
I do not believe there has to be any suggestion of 'less than', 'wrong' or anything else within those choices- some choose monogamy, some choose polyamoury, some choose hetero, others choose metro and this is part of the joyful inheritance of Being- choice. With the exception of inflicting harm on another Being or expression of sentient Life, how can any choice be wrong? Where things get bent is when we start to believe that our particular brand of whatever is THE brand, the ONLY brand, that can be 'right' and the correct measure of 'what is'.
Mmm. So I'm interested in creating a space with post-propaganda/Empire consciousness, a space where the gathered collective gets to experiment with and experience a platform that in part has a core that supports, encourages and exists in a continuum of constant evolution in every expression. The current planetary social collective is going through massive upheaval, distress and destruction because it does *not* have a fluid and embracing philosophy of welcoming and absorbing constant evolution, from the individual Singularity to the planetary to the Universal level- and this not only seems counterintuitive to me as a Being, it also appears to have unhelpful and painful consequences on a global level.
Is there a core here on this board that is practicing this fluid state understanding as a foundation for Doing Things In More Interesting Ways? Can we start to create and live into a more fluid way of Being, thinking, perceiving? I'm personally fascinated, excited, inspired and drawn to this, rather than looking at what *doesn't* work- which can often be discovered if you try to expand the idea/whatever through the entire frequency- for example, have you ever stopped to consider that being *warm blooded*, mammalian, actually changes your experience and perception of the Universe? Ever tried being something that is physically incarnate and *doesn't* have a heartbeat, endocrine system , lungs or bloodflow? One's *entire* perspective of the physical realm alters absolutely, yet who is to say that the warm blooded/mammalian experience is 'preferable' due to some nebulous or assumed inherent superiority? Some of the most amazing and spiritual Beings I have had contact with are like this, no heartbeat etc, and it's boggling and beautiful to be able to share their experience, akin to that of the self appointed superiority of the West coming into contact with some of the true beauty and grace present within some native cultures.
This is a time/space point where a massive maturing of the many species here is happening- I would like to have some conversations regarding what a more embracive and 'mature' perspective might and can look like, and extend the experience of holding this space for one another even if I don't choose to participate in or resonate with the particular perspective being espoused. I personally feel that 'you don't think/look/behave like me= there's something wrong with YOU' (in however subtle an expression this might manifest) is a low vibration paradigm that had its day a long time ago...
In peace and evolution always.
