A Bird’s Eye View

The moment something is manifested it is being.
It is the “beingness” of things that appears as existence.

We start with UNKNOWABLE.
Anything that is manifested becomes KNOWABLE.

Manifestation involves the factors of BEINGNESS and AWARENESS.
BE-ING-NESS is simply the fact of EXISTENCE.
This is referred to as ATMAN in Eastern religions.
AWARE-NESS is simply the fact of KNOWING.

Both BEINGNESS and AWARENESS are abstract concepts.
Abstract concepts evolve toward concrete forms.
BEINGNESS evolves into IDENTITIES.
AWARENESS evolves into VIEWPOINTS.

An identity with an ability to have a viewpoint is called a BEING.
This is referred to as SOUL in Western religions.
Thus, the concept of identity is inherent to the concept of SOUL.
The concept of identity is not part of the concept of ATMAN.
ATMAN is not the same thing as the SOUL.

THOUGHT underlies any manifestation.
Thus, thought underlies beingness, awareness, identity, viewpoint, being, etc.
“I”, “You,” “He” and “She” refers to beings.
Thus, thought underlies the formation of “I”, “You,” “He” and “She”.

THOUGHT is impersonal.
THOUGHT is senior to any BEING.

GOD is a label given to UNKNOWABLE.
GOD is then given an identity, even when
That identity is considered mysterious and beyond anything human.
GOD is considered to be the SUPREME BEING.

THOUGHT is senior to any BEING.
Therefore, THOUGHT must be senior to GOD also.

THOUGHT is impersonal.
THOUGHT is visualization.
THOUGHT comes about in an effort to know the unknowable.

Where does that THOUGHT come from?
Well… That is unknowable.

    “We start with UNKNOWABLE.
    Anything that is manifested becomes KNOWABLE.”

    We can and do experience the processes that stream from a source, even if we cannot name, identify or locate a source, just as you have done in this article.

      Yes, that’s true, and progress will occur when one realizes what is beyond awareness.

    Vin, I suggest that you supply links to the essays that underpin the summaries in this essay. And within the essays, provide links to the essays that expand upon previously discussed concepts. It has been my experience that people browsing on the web don’t move through websites in a linear fashion, so crosslinking becomes an imperative. The alternative is to have a preface that explains that reading the materials out of sequence may render them incomprehensible or at least reduce the quality of understanding of them.
