DURING ONE OF THE CONSTANT DAILY MEETINGS TAKING PLACE ON THIS PLANET
ONE MAN HAD THIS TO OFFER: “WHAT IF CONSCIOUSNESS IS NOT ACTUALLY LOCATED
IN THE NEO- CORTEX, OR EVEN IN THE BRAIN, BUT IS DISTRIBUTED IN EVERY CELL
IN THE BODY, AND IT JUST SEEMS TO BE IN OUR HEAD SINCE IT IS IN THE
CORTICAL AREAS OF THE BRAIN THAT THIS BODY-WIDE CONSCIOUSNESS SPEAKS, (AS IT WERE)
AND MAKES ITSELF KNOWN IN A MANNER THAT CONSCIOUSNESS CAUSES “US” TO LABEL AS,
“CONSCIOUSNESS”, (“US” BEING SOME SORT OF SHADOW SENSATION, OR REFLECTION OF
OUR OVERALL CONSCIOUSNESS).
IN SUCH A CASE, CONSCIOUSNESS DOESN’T REALLY CEASE WHEN THE NEO- CORTEX IS SEVERED (AS IT SEEMS) —
CONSCIOUSNESS, UNDER SUCH CONDITIONS, SIMPLY HAS NO FACILITY THROUGH WHICH TO MANIFEST THE CHARACTERISTICS THAT WE CALL CONSCIOUSNESS.
THUS AS ALWAYS — (TO NON STANDARD SIGHT) — THE VERY OPPOSITE OF “STANDARD-EXPLANATION- FOR-SOMETHING” COULD IN FACT BE VALID.
XXX
FADS, POPULAR CLICHES, MODERN VIEWS, BEING UP TO SPEED WITH THE LATEST GOSSIP, ALL SERVE TO GIVE ORDINARY PEOPLE A SENSE OF TRIBALISM — OF BELONGING TO A GROUP WITH WHICH THEY WISH TO BE IDENTIFIED.
QUERY: CAN YOU SEE DIRECT APPLICATION OF THIS AS REGARDS WHAT YOU WANT YOUR CONSCIOUSNESS TO BE, AND WHAT IT APPEARS DETERMINED TO BE?!
XXX
ANOTHER MAN, PRESENT AT ONE OF THOSE ENDLESS GET TOGETHERS THEN TOOK THE FLOOR AND MADE THESE COMMENTS: “IN MY INDIVIDUAL EFFORTS TO CHANGE WHAT I PERCEIVE TO BE MY, ‘CONSCIOUSNESS’ AND WHAT MENTALLY PASSES THROUGH IT, I OFTEN LOOK AT MYSELF IN TERMS OF A MILITARY-POLITICAL STRUGGLE WITH ME AS AN “INSURGENT”: “ONE IN ACTIVE OPPOSITION TO LAWFUL AUTHORITY.”, AND MY NATURAL, AUTOMATIC CONDITIONS OF CONSCIOUSNESS AS BEING, “PARTISANS: ZEALOUS SUPPORTERS OF THE ESTABLISHED SOVEREIGNTY”, (WITH SOME “FAIR-WEATHER PATRIOTS”, AND, “ARM-CHAIR-GENERALS” WANDERING ABOUT AMIDST THE TWO CAMPS). I PERSONALLY FIND THIS PICTURIZATION OF MY INNER TERRAIN & ACTIVITY HELPFUL.” AND AFTER HE HAD TAKEN HIS SEAT, ANOTHER ATTENDEE STOOD AND OFFERED A NEW DEFINITION: “A TRUE MYSTIC, (OR, ‘INNER-INSURGENT’) IS HE WHO WILL NOT TAKE THE NOTION THAT: ‘NO MAN IS AN ISLAND.’ — LAYING DOWN.”, 1

IF THOSE ASLEEP & IN CAPTIVITY COULD SEE A MAN WHO WAS AWAKE & FREE,
THE FORMER MIGHT SAY OF THE LATTER: “THERE GOES ONE OF LIFE’S TRULY GREAT, ‘HAS-BEENS’.” —
— AND A MAN SUDDENLY LEPT TO HIS FEET EXCLAIMING: “THAT’S IT! —
THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT I WANT TO BE: A GREAT, ‘HAS-BEEN’! AND
ONE WHO NO LONGER EVEN REMEMBERS HIS PREVIOUS LIFE.”
XXX
ONE FELLOW SAYS: “I FIND THAT ONE SUDDEN INSIGHT EQUALS A YEAR’S WORTH OF PONDEROUS STUDY.”
XXX
TIME TO PLAY:  L.F.U.T. I .A.:  LET’S FACE UP To IT AGAIN”:
To “BE ASLEEP, DISTRACTED &CAPTIVE”IS TO ARGUABLY — WANT TO BE ASLEEP,
DISTRACTED, ETC — FOR IT IS TO
WANT-TO-BE — AND, TO BE
ANY WHERE INTERNALLY BUT HERE.
…(AND EVEN SHOULD A SLEEPING MAN DENY THIS, HIS THOUGHTS WOULD SAY OTHERWISE).
BEING IN SUCH A STATE KEEPS YOU A PARTISAN FOR THE ESTABLISHED AUTHORITY; THE FOLLY OF THE DISCREDITED, ESTABLISHED AUTHORITY.
XXX
IT HAS BEEN CLAIMED THAT ALL CHANGE — EVEN FROM BAD TO BETTER -WILL ENTAIL PAIN,
BUT I HOWEVER — KNOW OF ONE EXCEPTION TO THIS NOTION.

2007-3
AT ANOTHER OF THOSE CONTINUAL INNER CONCLAVES, ONE MAN OFFERED UP THE
HISTORY OF HIS STRUGGLES & DISCOVERIES:
“WHEN I FIRST BECAME AWARE OF A VOICE IN MY HEAD THAT SEEMED OTHER THAN ME,
I STUDIED IT AND FINALLY CONCLUDED AND SAID TO IT: ‘YOU’RE NOTHING OTHER THAN
‘ME’.
AFTER ADDITIONAL SCRUTINY & EXPERIENCE IN THE MATTER I CAME TO A DIFFERENT VIEW AND SAID TO THE VOICE: ‘You ARE NOT — ‘ME’.
BUT MY LATEST VIEW. IS THAT THE ‘VOICE’ AND ‘ME’ ARE SEPARATE ENTITIES,
AND THAT ALTHOUGH THEY BOTH ARE IN ME,
FROM MY ‘ME VIEW’
THE VOICE IS AN INTRUDER — RELATIVELY SPEAKING, AN OUTSIDER, A FOREIGNER,
AND THAT ONLY THE ‘ME’ IS — BLOOD KIN.
WITH THE ‘VOICE’ BEING LIKE A LIFE-IMPOSED
BUSINESS-ASSOCIATE, OR, PERSONAL-ASSISTANT TO AID ‘ME’ IN MY SURVIVAL.”
XXX
LATER THAT SAME DAY, AT ANOTHER CONFERENCE, A MAN WITH RELEVANT EXPERIENCE SUFFICIENT TO GIVE HEFT,TO HIS OBSERVATION, MADE THIS ONE: “IT MAY BE THAT I ENJOY THINKING FAR TOO MUCH TO EVER STAY IN A PERMANENT STATE OF AWAKENING.”, …AND I ASK YOU: WHO’S TO SAY THAT NOT A POSSIBILITY?!
OH YEAH, NOT LONG AFTER THAT ANOTHER CHAP SAID THAT BASED ON HIS OWN EXTENSIVE PERSONAL EXPERIENCE THAT HE HAS COME UP WITH IDENTIFYING NAMES FOR 4 DISTINCT STATES OF SLEEP, WHICH HE CALLS: “BEING ASLEEP: BEING DEEP ASLEEP) I WAS ASLEEP JUST A MOMENT AGO, AND: I’LL BE ASLEEP AGAIN SHORTLY.”
…MAKES YOU NOT KNOW WHETHER TO LAUGH OR CRY, HUH?!
NOTES ANOTHER WAG:
“TRYING TO ACCOMPLISH THIS KINDA THING IS LIKE A LIFE TIME SPENT, ARM WRESTLING WITH YOURSELF.”
AND TO DISTINGUISH HIMSELF FROM A WELL KNOWN DOCTOR WHO DEALT WITH EXTERNAL ANIMALS, ONE MAN, WHO HAS LEARNED HOW TO DEAL WITH HIS OWN INTERNAL ONES, HAS RENAMED HIMSELF: “DOCTOR DO NOTHING.”– DO NOTHING !!
FACT: IF YOU CAN JUST KEEP YOUR “ME” SEPARATED FROM THE “VOICE” THAT IS MOST OFTEN DISSATISFIED WITH THIS EXACT INSTANT, YOUR DREAMING WILL CEASE.

2007-4
IF “ME” NOT BE MINDFUL THEN WHO? — THE VOICE?!?!,
IF ‘ME’ NOT CONTROL CONSCIOUSNESS THEN WITH WHAT ARE YOU LEFT?!, …WHAT WILL HAVE BEEN ACCOMPLISHED?
A CERTAIN MAN WHO SPOKE PUBLICLY ON THE “INNER INSURGENCY” ONE DAY SAID TO HIS AUDIENCE: “WHEN WE ARE TOGETHER: I TALK — YOU LISTEN. WHEN YOU ARE NOT HERE: I TALK — I LISTEN.”
HE THEN ASKED THEM: ” How IS IT WITH YOU?”
AND NOW TIME TO PLAY: F.T.S.I,S.D.: “FOR THOSE STILL IN SOME DOUBT”:
WHEN A MAN’S AWAKE — HE’S AWARE THAT HE’S AWAKE: — BUT,
HE DOESN’T THINK ABOUT BEING AWAKE.
(J.I.C.Y.W.I.:”JUST IN CASE You WERE INTERESTED”.)

AN ATTEMPTED EXPLANATION FOR MAN’S POETIC PREOCCUPATION WITH
“WEAKNESSES AND ABERRATIONS” MIGHT BE THAT FOR A FIGURE TO BE HEROIC
HE MUST BE FLAWED AND THEN OVERCOME HIS WEAKNESS, BUT AT THE LEVEL AT WHICH THE INNER-INSURGENT MOVES, A MAN ONCE LIBERATED, NEVER LOOKS BACK ON HIS PREVIOUS CAPTIVITY.
IF “WHAT’S DONE” IS NOT TRULY “DONE.WITH” THEN A MAN IS NOT TRULY LIBERATED.
ALTHOUGH MENTAL DEXTERITY SEEMS OF DISTINCT BENEFIT TO A REBEL, INTELLIGENCE AND LIBERATION ARE NOT THE SAME ITEM.
ONLY THE DUMB DIE YOUNG (THAT IS), LONG BEFORE THEY ACTUALLY-STOP-BREATHING.

CONTINUED, REGARDING THE POSSIBILITY OF CONSCIOUSNESS EXISTING THROUGHOUT
THE BODY AND NOT JUST IN THE BRAIN:
IT COULD BE THAT WHAT IS EXPERIENCED AS IN THE HEAD IS JUST THE,
“LOCAL REPRESENTATION OF CONSCIOUSNESS”,
A PARALLEL TO THE POSSIBILITY THAT MAN, THE CONSCIOUS CREATURE,
MIGHT JUST BE THE”LOCAL REPRESENTATION” OF LIFE’S CONSCIOUSNESS
IN THIS PART OF THE UNIVERSE.
TAKING SUCH A MOMENTARY PERSPECTIVE WOULD OFFER UP ANOTHER POTENTIAL, THAT CONSCIOUSNESS CONSISTS OF TWO SEPARATE COMPONENTS,
AND THAT THE TWO ENTITIES IN THE HEAD AS PREVIOUSLY NOTED. BY THAT ONE MAN), OF: “ME”(WHICH SEEMS TO REALLY BE ME), AND THEN THE, “VOICE” OF WHICH THE “ME” IS AWARE, (WHICH COMPARABLY SPEAKING FEELS TO BE A NON-KIN,INTERLOPER),
THAT THE “VOICE” MIGHT BE THE VOICE OF LIFE’S “LOCAL REPRESENTATIVE A..
OF CONSCIOUSNESS, AND THAT THE “ME” MIGHT BE THE “UNIVERSAL REPRESENTATIVE” OF CONSCIOUSNESS THAT IS DISTRIBUTED THROUGHOUT EVERY MAN’S ENTIRE BEING.
THUS OUR CONSCIOUSNESS MIGHT CONSIST OF TWO CONSCIOUSNESS:
A “LOCAL CONSCIOUSNESS”, WHICH TO INSURGENTS SEEMS NOT THEIR OWN,
AND “UNIVERSAL CONSCIOUSNESS” WHICH, WHEN DOMINATE IN A MAN RESULTS IN THE CONDITION KNOWN AMONG THE REBELS AS:”BEING AWAKE; BEING. ENLIGHTENED,
BEING FINALLY FREE.”

AT FROM THE LAST NOTES TAKEN AT ONE OF THOSE NEVER ENDING, INTERNAL MEETINGS TAKING PLACE IN MENS’ MINDS, WE HAVE THE COMMENTS OF ONE OF THE ATTENDEES: “AFTER EXTENSIVE EXPERIENCE IN TRYING TO ACHIEVE THE OVERALL AIM OF ALL PROFESSED: ‘CONSCIOUSNESS-CHANGING-SYSTEMS’, ALONG WITH INTENSE, PERSONAL STUDY OF EXACTLY WHAT THIS INVOLVES COMPARED WITH WHAT I CAN OBSERVE, CONSTANTLY GOING ON ‘NAY OWN HEAD/BRAIN/MIND,
I NO LONGER FEEL MUCH ATTACHMENT TO ANY OF THE SYSTEMS, OR TO THEIR
TERMS AND DESCRIPTIONS—
I AM HOWEVER, DEVELOPING A NEW APPRECIATION FOR THE OLD, CLASSIC
RELIGIOUS VIEW. OF MAN,(WHICH I HAD LONG AGO DISMISSED…AND NOT WITHOUT CAUSE) THAT CLAIMS TWO DISTINCT AND OPPOSING FORCES OF
“GOOD & EVIL” ARE IN CONSTANT BATTLE FOR MAN’S SOUL, NOW SURPRISINGLY APT, THOUGH I FIND THE TERMS, (CONSIDERING THE REALITY INVOLVED),
OF “GOOD & EVIL” INADEQUATE, AND THINK OF MAN’S “CONSCIOUSNESS”,…
RATHER THAN HIS “SOUL” —
BUT OTHER THAN FOR THESE MINOR CHANGES,. I SAY:
“BY GOD! PRAISE JESUS — PEACE ON MUHAMMAD, BLESSED BE BUDDHA, AND —
HOLY MOSES!! — TO ME THE PICTURE OF 2 FORCES, ENERGIES, INCLINATIONS
ENDLESSLY, INSTANT-BY-INSTANT
VYING FOR MY ATTENTION AND CONTROL OF MY CONSCIOUSNESS IS —
DEAD ON THE MARK.
..AND I SAY THAT ANYONE WHO WILL IMMEDIATELY DISCOUNT THIS PERSPECTIVE SIMPLY REVEALS THEIR LACK OF PROPER INVESTIGATION IN A STILL OPEN CASE.”
AND THAT PARTICULAR MEETING THEN CAME TO A CLOSE WITH ALL OF THE ATTENDEES
SINGING:
“IF CONSCIOUSNESS IS EVERY WHERE,
THEN WHERE CAN I BE THAT
CONSCIOUSNESS AIN’T?!”
