A Perceptual Wisdom Revolution


This is how humans are: We question all our beliefs, except for the ones that we
really believe in, and those we never think to question. ― Orson Scott Card

Orsan Scott Card’s comment sums up the way I began self-questioning beliefs about my reality while reading neuroscience accounts of nervous system function back in 2007. The calendar year concept of space-time that in hindsight, was the beginning of trying to understand my reality from the inside-out. The period of my life when I started to make sense of experiences of being the earth turning in space, as a visceral challenge to my consciousness.

A challenge that, in hindsight, has always been the need for a re-adaptation of my mind towards a more heart-felt  and embodied sense of reality. Which I now understand as the birth-right challenge expressed in the cryptic clues of ancient wisdom symbols and stories. Like the symbolic image of family life within the horizons of the Aten and Jesus upon a metaphorical cross of space-time.

I believe the intuition in Bob Marley’s revolution solution idea sums up the synchronous reality of human history. Just I believe in our innate capacity for developing a higher consciousness involving deeper insights and understandings of reality. As I continue to wrestle with two cryptic sayings of an old Buddhist monk in Thailand, “Words are not reality?” ― “Only experience reveals the nature of being?”
