Return to Love – External and Internal Worlds

External World

Currently there are many different opinions surfacing about where the Mind actually dwells in the human body.  DNA advancements in scientific research technology are dislodging many exotic viewpoints as to its location.  Can it be, as we metaphysicians have known for ages, that the Mind truly exists in each and every cell of our being, which connects us with the Universal Mind that surrounds all things and dwells in all things?  DNA experiments are beginning to logically substantiate such a supposition.         

Notice, also, there are (that) the three views of consciousness appear to be similar to the list previously mentioned for the three aspects, which make up the word, Phenomenology.   See the end of earlier post. (Examination Time and Phenomenology) 

The first part in the External World is logical reasoning thinking (which is the function of the brain’s left hemisphere).

Let us now consider the examination of the consciousness that exists whether we are aware of it or not in our inner world and where we uncover the Right Brain’s access route.

Internal World

The second, the Internal World, is also where one goes when in prayer and meditation. The right-brain hemisphere is the way and access to spatial unlimited activities.  Finally, the third, the emotional and mental affect all this has on the individual, is located in the limbic stem area of the brain. The Limbic has also been referred to as the seat of the emotions for it has a direct connection to the heart. In this area location and connection, it is considered humanity’s original brain formed millions of years ago, which is said to house the soul and all the memories that it has experienced since its formation. More about this important part of the brain will be discussed later. 

A systematic scanning of a translation of some of Husserl’s later works provide some understanding into why there was no common agreement on the protocols necessary to the establishment of a basis for this particular type of philosophy. 

The book, “Edmund Husserl – Phenomenology and the Crisis of Philosophy,” is translated by Quentin Lauer (1965:23) and provides necessary background information. This comparative analysis of the two related subjects chosen under consideration — (1) conscious awareness and (2) phenomenology — is a scientific awareness study of philosophy as a transcendental state of pure reason or the science of science.  It provides ample opportunities and examples of  “Male and Female Energies” role-expansions as we enter further into this new millennium, called by many as The Golden Age. 

Return to Love – Examination Time and Phenomenology Crisis

Examination Time

We can start by examining if it is time (at the beginning of) this (new) millennium in this 21st Century to connect again to the center of our being where all our thoughts manifest into form.  It has been recommended by many as a reliable alternative method of transition into this Age of Information and Energy (I&E).

Recognized as the primary issue of this next 1000-year millennium and the overall social focus on Earth as a whole, I&E’s methodology can be utilized to assist in the current spiritual growth and scientific advancement movement. 

In the following explanation and discussion, it falls under the heading of Phenomena, which in itself is a viable and broad enough base at the very least to place a theory. At the very most, it is a beginning foundation for a future that is not yet in the making but is slowly encroaching it.

Phenomenology Crisis

The greatest game in town that came on the scene in the (first) years of this new Century was the one that attempted to totally ignore or reason away many of the unexplainable phenomena taking place.  It caused many rational people to become very irrational in society’s eyes.  This is the competitive condition existing in scholarly society (today) – – an ideal place to agree to disagree. 

Phenomenology is a term used in (the early part of) this last century that is slowly returning as the new insight format on which to base a renewed interest into the mastery of Mystery Sciences.  All of the (new) communication fields available – Web Sites, Internet, e-mail, Electronic Publishing, Radio Talk Shows, Video and TV network specials, and podcasts/social media (programming) have provided (new) ways to explore and share with others the invisible and the unexplainable fascinating mysteries of life (with the modern computer assistance).

As Dennett mentioned in his book, private intimate communications had almost ceased to exist, but group and worldwide communication avenues have opened wide.  There is an excitement and a widespread curiosity about what is happening in the world outside of our individual circles. This interest is probably what allows many to think that our private inner communications have become a public display of conscious social sophistication awareness.

 Understanding how phenomena triggers consciousness expansion is a good beginning. To start to realize what is happening in the world around us in less technical terms does lead to more understanding.   Dennett quoted Kant’s description of phenomena as “things as they appear to be” while nomena is “things as they are in themselves.”  

Phenomenology’s scientific pursuit in the past was to discover a new foundation for philosophy and a consistent easily understood methodology.  This doctrine grew up early in the 20th Century as a philosophical school or movement around the work of Edmund Husserl.
Its purpose or goal then was to build a new foundation for all known philosophy or for all knowledge available at the time.  It was based on the use of a special technique of introspection, which resulted in an interesting investigative state of mind that becomes more thoroughly acquainted with the pure objects of conscious experience allowing our mind to act as a detached third person observer.

 “Quantum Physics” is an example of how this works.  Many metaphysicians use this form of detachment in their own development of self-awareness techniques.  It is a way of processing circumstances that revolve around mental and emotional factors, and is used to think more clearly to reach ideal supportive life decisions.

Phenomenology in the past had failed to find a single agreeable method of proper introspection that everyone could accept.  Unfortunately this is also true (today) of many of our (new) sciences.  So there are no known available phenomenology practices in this day and age (other than some questionable ESP investigative methods) to study and to model ourselves after, no known experts (uncontroversial and/or accepted) on the nature of things that dwell in the stream of consciousness, according to many experts.

Let us now look back at its beginning. Phenomenology began as an Impressionist Movement involved in Introspectionist Psychologies.  As the story goes, it was simply based on three parts that make up the phenom: 1) Experiences of the external world, 2) Experiences of the internal world and 3) Experiences of emotions or the “affect” of 1) and 2).

How does this relate to “The Challenge of Social Sophistication?”  The subject of Phenomena is highlighted in this spiritual philosophical way because it is a predominate factor.

In this examination of human religious reactions and responses is the supposition that experiential phenomenon, as it relates to the male and female human anatomical functions, often determines how human beings, as a whole, view their own related spiritual consciousness by the preceding sample of three “phenom” experiences.  It is not enough that we consider the mechanisms of the human body form and how it’s energies operate differently in women and men.  It is imperative that we examine, also, how the brains in both genders’ function and thought consciousness expands as each sex matures developing automatically the following three aspects of relative consciousness:

  1. Left-brain hemisphere: conscious logical reasonable expression and follow through.
  2. Right-brain hemisphere: subconscious unbounded imaginative recognition and applied use.
  3. Limbic brain stem: emotional and mental memory dominant as comparison actualization.

Phenomena Philosophy

IN YOUR STUDIES OF THE PHILOSOPHY OF PHENOMENA, WHAT WOULD YOU SAY IMPRESSED YOU THE MOST?

DR:  I think I must say that is the realization of the power of Unconditional Love.

WHY WAS THAT THE ONE OUT OF SO MANY?

DR:  As a young child growing up in a world of family, friends and interests, it was amazing that no matter what was going on in my life, I was also always looking for a reason for everything that was happening to me.  I was told that I was loved, but what did that mean?  I didn’t get much attention for I had a baby brother that seemed to take it all. Besides that, I was very quiet and very sensitive and remembered things that did not appear to be real in the actual world around me.  “What am I doing here?” I often asked myself. I wanted to have more answers or reasons than what were given to me.

DID YOUR SURROUNDINGS CHANGE MUCH AS YOU GREW OLDER?

DR: As I matured sooner than most because of the trying times in my family’s life, I found myself wanting to know more about what I was supposed to be doing with my life.  It had to be more than the suffering and pain that was going on all around me at that time of my life.

Fortunately, I had a very creative imagination in the darkness of the night as I lay in my bed unable to sleep. Even when in a movie theatre in my early years watching some inspiring film on the big screen in front of me I found myself yearning to understand and know more than anything in the world what true love really was. Was it what I saw on the screen or read in the romantic books in the library?  What my mother said it was, felt more like sacrifice and suffering than joy and happiness.

HOW DID YOU OVERCOME THIS DILEMMA AT SUCH AN EARLY AGE?

DR:  I tried not to think that love was my life’s mission. I would continually remind myself that it couldn’t be so simple. Everyone knows what love is, but to me it had to be something much more meaningful. There had to be in there somewhere 1) a selfless way to serve Humanity, 2) or a way of life that had Spiritual Meaning, and 3) a Special Family Unit where family members truly cared for each other and always celebrated life’s ups and downs together surrounded by unconditional love. I truly desired to know what I was really doing here. I realize now that I had a very deep need to understand what common life was all about.  Nothing about my surroundings made any sense to me as a child. I felt I was different from everyone around me.  I did not feel that I belonged where I was and I didn’t fit in very well. I had an awareness that went beyond the usual and I often felt lost in my surroundings. What was I doing here.

When I questioned the way things were, because I felt I was unfairly being picked on, I was often asked in frustration by my own mother, “Who do you think you are?  The Queen of England?”

As I grew I eventually felt I had to give up that inner need to understand to finally realize just what my mission was this lifetime.  As I looked back on it all, it appears to be all about Unconditional Love. I eventually came to the realization that Love is the glue that keeps us in the “here and now” so that our souls can grow and expand with our ever expanding Universal Loving Awareness. 

(To be continued….)
