The Game of Finding Meaning Wherever Meaning can be Found. 

May 23, 2015, 11:35 PM
This is the game you are playing in your mind at this very moment. All too often we as humans find ourselves clutching onto our egos perspective of reality. This is nothing short of problematic. Let’s be honest here; the ego, your judgement maker, confidence faker and altogether something that rhymes with breaker is probably the worst invention to spill out from the minds of men. Worst of all we keep on truckin with the same old bullshit problems that have confounded people for eons: war, poverty, sickness, violence, ad infinite cussing nauseam. 
Now I know how disarming and off putting conversations like this can be. Let me clarify right up front that what I’m about to tell you is not the solution to every problem ever in existence. Instead let’s frame this idea I’m about to present as just one approach to getting at the root of all of these seemingly intractable dilemmas. 

{an iiixiom}

In the sincere expression of a certain narrative or experience, an iiixiomatic concept is a type of network of interrelated theories used to explain and define a particular point of view. Once that point of view has been received and duplicated it then can be regarded as 1 of the infinite ways of explaining a belief about all that reality might be. It claims only the existance of that narrative about a subjective concept of reality—not the existence of that particular reality itself. 

It’s like one persons closest approximation of a Theory of Everything. 
{More on the iiixiom, iiixlogic and iiixtheory later}

Plato once described time as the moving image of eternity. I like to think he was attempting to express a universal axiom. {iiixiom} If I were to modify and update the concept I’d express it as: time is the window of perception, or frame of reference, that views the eternal nature of the omniverse. The omniverse is simply all that is in existence and exiSTANCE. That is merely the distinction between objective and subjective realities. Both, (existence|&|existance) nonetheless, hold a type of occurrence. The nature of cause and effect in this feedback loop of perception appears more and more to be like a paradox to both Scientists and Mystics alike. 

Meaning is measured (not proved) by the words it is composed of. There are essentially 3 philosophical positions one can take on the subject of meaning itself. The first and most attractive is the position of the existentialist. Everything is connected and has intrinsic meaning and perhaps beauty. Purpose is lurking just behind every mundane or trivial moment in time. To the awakened mind all is entangled. Kinda your basic run of the mill hippy dippy baloney. The contrast is held by the exact opposite sentiment of nothing meaning anything and everything is pointless so why bother talking about it. If you’re thinking to yourself “I’m kinda somewhere in between”—then you might be what I’m calling an type of imaginist. 
The words we use to assign meaning to moments of transcendental clarity are like signals to open minds primed for; casual reminders of divine thoughts from another time. It is these divine reminders that harken all of our endowed powers of perception and sentience to communicate information about our innermost knowledge and wisdom of self, that seems almost ineffable in ordinary modes of consciousness. I’m most enthused by the notion of the incommunicable. It arrives at my mindgrapes pre-equipped with definitive meaning and veridical importance. They say that intelligence is the manner in which one notices and ignores different attributes of a situation. The immediate moment of NOW being the only existent moment and therefore the most preeminent call for your attention. Do your best to notice what you’d usually ignore. 

In your current estimation of reality, how much of it could you explain by your own unique synthesis of experience and perspective? How aware of logical fallacies, confirmation bias and cognitive dissonance might be applied to your interpretation of reality? How many abstractions does your idea of reality rely on? In order to employ an abstraction to any current moment of now, is to require others to imagine correctly, your use, definition and hence interpretation of any given abstraction used to explain the immediate moment of now. I know that kinda twists your mind in on itself. It’s what prompts me to believe that the mere presence of complexity in thought is what scares away most well meaning individuals. 

I’ll clarify my point. 

When making a claim about: what it means to exemplify a particular concepts definition, there are no standards of acceptance in regards to; criteria by which the term existence may or may not be applied. Truth claims therefore seem to me to be best regarded by way of axiomatic display of said truth claim or example. How we choose to define ANYTHING is a modality of free will. Autonomy is hence regarded as a natural postulate to act from in order to give order to any bit of data. Ultimately it is nothing more than having a conversation about the nature of information and how reality is informed by a multitude of attractors and influences and catalysts which are all just words used to impose meaning on a given moment of direct experience we know as life itself. 

Life and hence existence is one of those irreducibly complex subjects. It’s the undertone of all methods of communication. The bedrock of experience is given continuity by virtue of the presence of memory. Memory as we all well know is a fallacious way to interact with reality. It’s easily distorted and provides, at best, an incomplete replay of occurrences. 

 “Let’s not ask whether or not it’s true. No serious philosopher asks anymore whether things are true or not he only asks whether they are plausible. We can say no more, it would be arrogant to say more. Truth is a dimension where we stop talking, —you know we know things in ways other than words.” —Alan Watts
