The bird in The cage. Allegory of the human mind

This story is about the human mind in traditional Sufi style with elements of philosophy , religion , mysticism and poetry. The depths of a story depends on the readers interpretation. Often there are several layers with correlation of ideas to expand the conscious thought in many dirrections..

In a later post I will add notes give some details about the different parts of the story perspective in relation to the mind.

How many Dimensions Are there in Your Realty?

How do you see the universe

“The key to growth is the introduction of higher dimensions of consciousness into our awareness.” Lao Tzu

The theoretical framework of Superstring Theory posits that the universe exists in ten different dimensions.

According to Hinduism there are 64 main dimensions and each dimension is further divided into many sub-dimensions.

The Buddhism in essence focus is one present realtiy, the focus is on here and now. In a simple way it teaches there is only one dimension the present truth and all or everything is connected, obviously it is more more complicated than that statement. Buddha said: “As a net is made up of a series of ties, so everything in this world is connected by a series of ties. If anyone thinks that the mesh of a net is an independent, isolated thing, he is mistaken. It is called a net because it is made up of a series of interconnected meshes, and each mesh has its place and responsibility in relation to the other meshes.”

Christianity has different views on the topic. The extra dimension of Spiritual realm is mystery to many in defining it within oneself or outside. The Bible said “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth” Genesis 1:1 . From my perspective there is at least 3 dimensions mentioned, one that God is in , then one dimension of heaven and one for earth earth.

Islam is similar to other religious philosophy ( I am not expert on Islam) The concepts of dimensions are many or just one, I would say it is how you interpret or personal beliefs according to one’s perspective.

Finally a Sufi teacher told me there are at least 8 dimensions or worlds but all in the same world or dimension. He explained trying to describe colour to a blind person. I have read much of Rumi work and often he explains the reality what we see is not the actual reality through the use of many wonderful stories or parables.

The humble human for centuries has relied on spiritual doctrine or sages to define the dimensions of reality. Then science through its lens of perception of measuring through the analytical brain of the senses comes to its own conclusions.

The aspect of a person mind will interpret how many dimensions through intuitive, cognitive assessment with core beliefs as the foundation of a person experiences. The psychological models of a child’s mind and old person mind is totally different because of not just core beliefs and experiences but biological underpinnings of perspective.

In conclusion in this brief synopsis of dimensions I encourage you to think of new dimensions when Captain Kirk said on the enterprise “: To explore strange new worlds. To seek out new life and new civilizations. To boldly go where no man one has gone before!

Theory of Reality

By steve Hyne

“Reality leaves a lot to the imagination”. John Lennon

What we see is different from other people because of many different reasons. Identical twins in case studies show clearly that they are individuals in thier own right with own views, they have their own perception. The brain is another factor on how we see the world around us. Everyone histories includes environment that shapes a person reality from ideologies and concepts imprinted on the child. The debate of nurture or nature is not definite because there is always another anomaly that science throws into the mix.

The theory of reality I believe is the foundation of a person existence and drives from biological to psychological and spiritual perspective. The film shallow Hal aptly describes how society perspective of a person external appearance defines a person is ridiculous, hence a satirical comedy to help the viewer change thier perspective to a wider view (pun intended).

For a while I have difficulty in defining consciousness for myself from scientific, Spiritual, philosophical perspective. This post is my hypothesis of theory of reality from my perspective. I know there are many similar viewpoints and I am not knowingly fabricating someone else idea. The concept I had is working progress a bit like Freudian concepts sound great but to have no concrete science at present and is difficult to prove either way.

I had problem sleeping last night my mind was working overtime. I had no conscious thought or predictive subliminal exercise before I went to sleep to keep me awake . But I will say one major influence is a book I read before I go to sleep at present is called the inflamed mind , irony you could say it inflamed my mind last night reading it. The author was reviewing Freud in part his perspective of the mind and how history is still catching up in many domains. The lightbulb moment or solidifying pertinacity idea I had :thoughts were a biological process and the mechanism is triggered by synaptic Neurones that leads to behaviour. I knew this already with many references I have read as I have passion for neuroscience. So you could say Freud was one of the founding fore fathers of the neuroscience as we know it today.

The problem I have grappled with in the past is when does consciousness enter the soul or the person. Does it happen at conception, 9 weeks and so forth. It has been a religious and ethical debate for centuries. At the other end of the spectrum when does or how does the consciousness change or dissipate to where ever at death. I know this is a hot topic for many and again, years I would of been a heretic to question the state or religious powers in question.

The famous Einstein equation E=mc2 in simple terms is the bench press for all science as we know it. Energy never dies it is converted to mass or it’s created because it comes from stored energy. The definition says interchangeable; they are different forms of the same thing. The problem scientists have is defining and classifying everything in detail.

My theory of reality is that energy is consciousness, just change the Einstein equation to :
E(Consciousness)=mc2. I had this idea during my lucid dreaming, thinking , whatever you can call it. The concept that DNA are the blueprints of life and consciousness evolves into what the instructions tell consciousness to become from DNA. Intelligent energy you could say ,in a simple illustration every house in UK has electric appliances and the energy or electrical energy makes the stereo or television alive. Added to that illustration everything in that house is connected by a ring main despite each application being independent. I believe that the whole universe and many other philosophers and scientists say everything is connected. This is another reason why I believe in the Law of attraction principles.

In summary of this short hypothesis of my perception on reality we are alive by a consciousness that was there before our bodies existed and the same energy will continue when our bodies die because of entropy. Added to this fascinating debate , I had with my 16 year daughter today. We live in an infinite universe so the chances that there are many versions of our realty in many other universes. How we define our reality is our own personal gift and in Sufism there is no truth apart from your own personal truth and everything is the truth , that is another deep question to reflect on for the intellectuals. Confucius said in Analects 1:1 “Is it not a joy to learn with constant effort and application” To learn about our self and reality is only realty we will know.

Self Care Video

made by Steve Hyne

Self Care is an important Psychological , emotional , physical and mental part of life. The ingredients of success is wrapped up in the essential parts of the self that can be easily be neglected. No one gets it perfectly attuned but persistent alignments with improve results in all areas of life.

Compassion For Psychopath 01

I am really enjoying writing my first full novel and here is a preview of first two chapters I have done in video format. The Science fascinates me on how people tick. The book is a stereo typical portrait of a Psychopath with a twist there is but still no resolution on how they become psychopath , nature or nurture. I have researched the story so its not just my imagination but people , places and events actually happened in history. The story has no correlation to the actual events with the places or people, I have the idea in my mind then look for actual scenarios and settings , so one day it can be a film. Moral of the story is , we don’t really know who a person is deep within the skin.

All emotions are energy that flow through the body and mental pathways. Inertia forming a repeating pattern causes damaged. The motion of human feelings  residing as a host will impact the brain and body eventually causing disease mentally and physically.

Law Of A attraction Life Patterns Book available now

I have written this book in a way that is accessible to the average reader who has a basic education. My analytical mind indulges in Philosophy, Science, History and much more like a ravenous monster. I enjoy exploring the different angles of perception through Psychological narratives of individuals. The story tellers who have fed my mind of the inquirer quest and thirst for knowledge.

This book condenses all the different Sciences and Philosophies in an easy format for the reader to assimilate and learn. There has been a continuing debate throughout the centuries of what is truth and falsehood. This book is not an emphatic dogma, a teaching or a textbook, but a signpost to help the reader on their journey to discover fresh ways of perception and thinking to expand the mind.

Great minds of history have left behind not just profound words of wisdom but ideas and creativity for all humanity to benefit from by applying the mechanics in their personal life. One of the biggest problems and obstacles I perceive in society to change is the simple equation of cause and effect thinking. A Popular and easier route heard by humanity problems is to blame and admit a lack of autonomy that comes with responsibility. This relates to situations that confront us about Tesla’s idea, and what Einstein said about our thinking.

Our perception needs to change the power of our thoughts that affects our internal world to the realisation of the external reality of our existence. The Law of attraction foundation is the theory, we attract what we think or feed our mind.

The universe is a cooperation of laws from infinity to Quantum mechanics of what we know. The cooperation and influence of this universal phenomenon is significant ingredients. The pivotal principle of the universe from the flow of energy, Einstein beautifully simplified to an equation: E = mc2.This book will examine the life patterns that have become a behaviour pattern, and many of them are unknown to the individual.

Train the Ego

Snippet from my forth coming book draft version.

The Law of Attraction life Patterns, The Templates of Your life

Extract from chapter 4 The Ego Life Patterns

Train the Ego

“Whenever I climb, I am followed by a dog called ‘Ego’ “Friedrich Nietzsche

My personal experience the Ego for most of my life, well over 45 years was the top dog. I learnt as a child through trauma to turn off my sensitivities and emotionally responses to the suppression mode. This gave my Ego free run of my body and mind with little restraint from my heart to guide it. The unruly dog (Ego) was always pulling on the lead wanting to go here and there with no consideration of its owner. Reflecting back, I was so driven to extreme lifestyle with this dog dragging me on ridiculous regimes. When my wife was dying of cancer, I was so busy with my Ego pulling me here and there, I had no time for myself to refuel. The 18 months went in a flash and bang she died leaving me with 4 young children. After her death my Ego the dog went quiet, it became sick, and my heart opened with a tsunami of emotions. The point of this story is to show how the Ego goes into autopilot and people don’t change usually untill they are forced to like trauma.

Meditation the Master of the Ego

My salvation came with the practice of meditation that saved me from the oblivion of darkness. Meditation provided the training for my dog the Ego to be quiet. Sometimes when my mind wonders during meditation I imagine my Ego as an annoying dog barking telling me information. In my mind I pick up the dog and lock it up in a cage and tell it to shut up.  When the mind is quiet it allows the stresses of life to flow and the heart to embrace the soul. Some call this the bliss moment because then you are not being controlled by the Ego, you are totally present like a newborn baby. Regular meditation will give the Ego its time in the cage so the mind can have peace.
