One Consciousness Creates All Individuality
Arc 1 - Text 1
All separation is an illusion. What appears as the solidity of the outer world only exists within perception. Perception exists within consciousness. Consciousness is that which is aware of perception and experiences presence through it.
Physical matter is created through a perceptual projection that creates the illusion of spatial separation. In just the same way that physical space separates one thing from another, so linear time is the illusion of temporal separation. Time and space are perceptual projections that create the experience of the outward reality that your experience of self is contained within. They are the primary form of separation used by consciousness to create experiences of individuality (such as being human).
The outer world and your physical body are the perceptual projection of a state of consciousness that is choosing to dream of being a physical, individuated self that is contained within a world of consistent solidity. You witness this ability of your consciousness to create worlds every night when you dream. The waking dream of your life is however governed by rules of persistence and linear consistency that we have chosen to experience while in human form.
Consciousness knows itself to not be separate from anything in terms of either time or space. To become an individual therefore requires making the choice to become unconscious of how everything is the unified projection of a single consciousness. This choice for unconsciousness creates an experience of a self that possesses its own a unique perspective and thereby its own unique, unfolding experience of self.
A moment of human perception is an experience of partial-consciousness because it is a slice of the total perception that exists within the unified-consciousness. It is one of an infinite number of ‘momentary’ perceptions that you are sequentially moving through in your creation of a mortal self that lives within linear time. You are the one consciousness in human form.
DEFINITIONS & CLARIFICATIONS
Consciousness is awareness of what is. ‘What is’ is everything in existence, including all that is identified as past, future, perceptual, or imaginary. All consciousness, regardless of whether it is within a collective or individual experience of reality, experiences a self.
Self is an experience of identification that arises within awareness. To be conscious of what you are focused upon is to feel present in your experience, rather than separate from it. Presence in the reality of your self, is a quality of consciousness.
Individuality is a state of partial-consciousness created through the experience of perceptual separation. Through individuality, the one consciousness experiences itself as many independent, individuated experiences of self that can interact. Through this interaction further experiences of individuation naturally evolve.
The human self is an intention to experience a particular flavor of individuality. Having selected an entry point which contains encoded intentions for the entire life, the personified consciousness then continues to determine itself within the system through the ever-evolving choice of self-identification.
Separation is a perceptual illusion experienced within consciousness.
Waking life is a dream with self-imposed consistency.
Physical matter & linear time are forms of separation.
When not within the perception of separation—which is an illusion—all consciousness experiences itself as one.
The one consciousness uses the illusion of separation to experience itself as many individuals.
Every individual is a unique experience of perception.
Your individuality is shaped through your choice of which parts of ‘all that is’ are kept conscious, and which are made unconscious.
