The Universe & Looking

Reference: Course on Subject Clearing

This Key Word List and Glossary considers looking at the universe. The essence of looking is assimilation of what is perceived.


Key Word List

Looking, Inconsistency, Arbitrary, Attention, Unassimilated impression, Unstacking, Free Association, Directed Process, Memory, Time stamp,  Experiencing



Looking means to observe and recognize things for what they are. Looking does not involve thinking. Accurate perception requires the elimination of inconsistencies through unstacking of unassimilated impressions.

An inconsistency is something that is not consistent with its surroundings. It is arbitrary to some degree. Yet it is accepted because it seems to explain some confusion. Examples of this would be unreal beliefs that people carry around, and strange rituals that they engage in.

An arbitrary consists of the assumption or projection made during the assimilation of perceptual elements to maintain continuity, consistency and harmony in the mental matrix. The arbitrariness exists because not all data is known. It generates anomalies when various data is associated. These anomalies show up as doubts and perplexities, which are then resolved by getting more precise data.

Attention, when left to itself, generally goes to those areas where the processing of sensory input is slowed or blocked by inconsistencies.

Unassimilated impression
Unassimilated impressions consists of sensations, perceptions and knowing that have not been assimilated. At the root of unassimilated sensations are traumas that are too chaotic to be assimilated. Until they are assimilated, the subsequent perceptions and knowing also remain unassimilated to some degree. 

Unassimilated impressions stack up in the mind waiting to be assimilated. They unstack only by themselves when not interfered with, under deep concentration and free association.

Free Association
In free association one looks at the mind without interfering with it. Attention may flip from place to place; but as one keeps looking non-judgmentally without resistance, a pattern may emerge. As one keeps looking, the pattern may reveal some inconsistency. Such free association is non-verbal.

Directed Process
A directed process simply provides some assistance to a person in looking, with the proviso that the process does not imply that there must be something to be found in that direction. The directed process constrains free association to that direction.

Origin: “remembering”. When recalled, perceptual elements come together per their time stamps to generate the memory. Memory operates in the background to support computations. Memory does not consist of readymade recordings stored in the mind. 

Time stamp
Time stamp is the sense of successive occurrence coded in the perceptual elements.

Experiencing is a deeper form of looking. It is looking at the feelings, emotions, sensations and efforts arising in the mind and felt in the body. These are flows that outpour or discharge when not resisted.
