Silence

Tantra – Quantity vs Quality [part a]

Evolution of the human intellect has altered the focal point of our life experience – most of humanity operates on a delayed reflection of life-experience – a nearly imperceptible shift from real-time – the effect is that most human conscious experience is retarded from the nervous system’s [real-time sensory] experience – which is an instantaneous and unadulterated exposure to “reality”
~
The majority of human consciousness [or point of focus] operates on a degraded copy of life-experience which has been sampled, synthesized and stored – weighed and measured – categorized and discarded as a “known” phenomena – J. Krishnamurti emphasizes this throughout his teachings
The net result of our awareness being retarded from real-time, instantaneous life-experience is loss of sensorial connection – to wholly everything [everything holy] – human life becomes more focused on the quantitative aspects of existence [gather and grasp] and less on qualitative experiences [love and trust]
~
You’ll recognize this in yourself and others as the way of the intellectual – always searching for more information – sides to take and decisions to make – in other words – analysis paralysis
~
There is a consequence:
Our intrinsic human systems – which are constantly connected and communicating – and our power of realizing our full potential are diminished and decimated when our focus of attention resides within the intellect
~
Both ancient sages and mercenaries became aware of this dichotomous [dualistic] existence – in a time when our biological computing system [intellect] was not as evolved and complex as it is today
~
The Ancient Sages realized oral teaching and story telling are real-time experiences, dynamic, and more likely to be wholly internalized by the individual receiving the teachings
They predicted the coming dark ages of our intellectual ignorance and attempted to provide tools for humanity to dwell in “the real” through oral teaching, story telling and physical practices (i.e. Yoga, Tai Chi, etc.)
The sages recognized the intellect – simply as a function of it’s construction – will render written instructions as literal and commit a synthesized and distorted facsimile to biological memory which is lifeless and stale – so they were challenged with conveying written information through metaphor, symbology and abstraction to bypass the intellect and directly address intuitive understanding (i.e. Zen Buddhism, Tantra, hieroglyphs)
~
Meanwhile, ancient mercenaries [those who work to profit by] using exploitation leveraged a now well-known scientific side-effect of biological storage and control systems – a closed-loop system is subject to “ringing” – in other words an echo is experienced within the system that is very challenging to silence – you know this as the “monkey mind” and/or “self-critic”
In simplified terms, the echo these mercenaries set ringing for countless centuries is the artifice of guilt, shame and avarice as a means to leverage the biological functioning of the human intellectual process for gathering and propagating wealth along bloodlines – namely their own and their clients
~
The quantitative echo of the mercenaries has dominated humanity for most/all of recorded history
