“This whole creation is essentially subjective,
and the dream is the theater where the dreamer is at once:
scene, actor, prompter, stage manager, author, audience, and critic.”
~ Carl Gustav Jung
“Objectivity is an illusory impossibility.”
~ Ron Rattner, Sutra Sayings
“Objective reality does not exist” ….
“the universe is fundamentally a gigantic … hologram”
~ David Bohm, quantum physicist
“All concepts are mental projections of Cosmic Consciousness.
But for name – subject and object are same.”
~ Ron Rattner, Sutra Sayings
“Those who know how to think need no teachers.”
~ Mahatma Gandhi
“We are formed and molded by our thoughts.
Those whose minds are shaped by selfless thoughts
give joy when they speak or act.
Joy follows them like a shadow that never leaves them.”
How Can We Think More Objectively?
Q. How can we think more objectively?
A. We can’t. Objectivity is an illusory impossibility.
Thinking objectively is an oxymoronic misconception.
All thought is subjective; so everyone thinks subjectively.
All concepts are mental projections
of Cosmic Consciousness.
But for name – subject and object are same.
To transcend thinking in the ‘subject-object’ box,
we can intuit our wholeness – as both subject and object.
And realizing that Cosmic Consciousness is our eternal essence,
We can more and more think intuitively, holistically, compassionately and authentically – but sparingly.
So, with our Heart, not our head,
let’s think less, and BE more –
Ron’s comments about thinking “objectively”.
If you believe, as I once did, in the possibility of individual or institutional “objectivity”, you may have been surprised and informed by today’s posting about thinking objectively.
Like most Westerners I grew up culturally imbued with ideas and ideals of honesty and “objectivity” of our scientific, academic, journalistic and judicial institutions – of which as an adult I was soon disabused.
But only after my midlife spiritual awakening, did I begin to realize that spiritually objectivity is an illusory impossibility; that the idea of objectivity refers only to the Newtonian measurable material world of apparently separate forms and phenomena, which mistakenly excludes the quantum field and Cosmic consciousness – the ultimate immeasurable Reality and source of all our conceptions of ‘reality’.
Despite revolutionary discoveries in quantum physics, most materialistic mainstream scientists have remained reluctant to recognize the impossibility of scientifically ‘objective’ accuracy in describing Nature through measurement, without reference to immeasurable consciousness. And as yet only rare visionary scientists are beginning to recognize that everything perceived everywhere is merely an impermanent holographic energy form of projected consciousness.
May the foregoing explanation of how “objectivity” is an illusory and erroneous abstraction causing mistaken belief in the supposed accuracy and ‘reality’ of what we subjectively project and perceive, help encourage our evolutionary realization that space/time is merely a subjective mental projection of Cosmic Consciousness, our eternal essence.
And so may it be!
