Session 16 - Going Out of Myself

×

Until today, we've been evolving within our bodies—in a life that is as self-centered as possible, satisfying myself as much as possible, and considering other's views, minds, and outlooks, as little as possible. Today the crisis is forcing me to mingle with others, acquire their perspectives, their "interior," as though I am going out of myself as I am beginning to mingle with others.


By doing so, I acquire the capabilities of the rest of the world, their desires, thoughts—everything. By that I become like the totality of the rest of the world, as though I exit my own body and truly acquire an ability to feel the whole of reality.


A place for a new dimension has been opened here, a place for a completely new sensation, to see and feel reality not through my personal, narrow perception, but through collective sensations and perceptions, an accumulation of all the people.


If I draw closer to others, I become educated by the entirety of this rich society. I acquire the ability to see life through multifaceted emotions and intellects, not just my own, but rather through the you in me, the him in me. So I become included in everyone together, and see a far richer world than now. This is called "life outside the body." Outside the body means outside my current ego.


For this reason, we need to consider the person, to examine him, to measure him, solely and only to the extent that he is found to be ready to be integrated in a good society, and by means of this, to design and shape himself.  In summary,  our entire purpose and goal is to clarify how we can provide a good environment to each and every person, and not to relate to what he is now. Instead, from now on, we build the environment.


In this stage of the study we needn't delve into understanding the term "life outside the body," and the additional ability acquired as a result. Eventually, even without words, it will become clear to us that each of us can expand the emotional and intellectual perceptions because if I'm included in others, if I feel what they are feeling, and think what everyone is thinking, I broaden my abilities several times more than a regular person, to the extent that I expand and become inclusive.


Our perception of everything depends entirely on the number of discernments we make in everything, on the resolution. The number of my discernments depends on the extent to which I consist of contradicting things, on the contrast that I detect among things, and how I can use them as building blocks, like Lego bricks—what is this made of, what is that made of, how is this complexity different from another complexity, and so on.


When I absorb emotions from others and it is all included in me, it enriches me, makes me become compiled of different and opposite things. Then, I suddenly begin to perceive the world in such a versatile manner that compared to the previous, superficial perception, it's as if I go out to another perception. It's truly a psychology of a new perception, a new world. Thus, I transcend the limitations of my body, the limitations of time, motion, and place because I become included with humanity, acquiring the collective emotions and perceptions of the whole of humanity—the acting intelligence in the whole of humanity. This is what I discover.


I begin with being included with others, discovering the collective feelings and perceptions, which actually come to us from Nature. I have the ability to reach what is hidden inside of Nature—and what is present in it as my root—Nature's sensations and perceptions from which all the development in this world came out. In that development, I see that I return to the same place, the same root, the same sensations and perceptions in Nature from which the whole chain of the still level, the vegetative, animate, and me, the speaking level of development, came out. I return to the beginning of evolution, and thus complete the circle.


It is with good reason that Nature is goading us toward mutual connection, toward actually losing our individuality. In truth, we're not losing it; we're rising above it. Our individuality is corporeal, animal. It's only a concern for the body, so it may exist as comfortably as possible for whatever time it's given. But the purpose of our evolution is to rise above concern for the personal body into general concern. That general concern gives me entirely different tools, what are not from within the body. This is why it's called "outside my own body."

Topic

Transition to another dimension, to a new world, takes place when a person perceives for himself a wider, varied, different, and contradictory choice of insights and feelings in relation to the world. The person can adopt these insights through integration with the thoughts and feelings of other people.

Main Points

  • The crisis obliges a person to cease from their inner egotistical view, and to begin to look outside at the other, to feel the other, and to be integrated with him/her.
  • Through the perspective of the individual that comes through others, a person acquires an ability to feel and understand all of reality.
  • A person is judged solely and only on how much s/he is ready to be integrated into a good environment.

"As far as anyone can tell, these elements, forces and parameters appear invariant throughout the visible universe. They can be thought of as a kind of "deep DNA"—a universal genetic code inscribed far below the level of terrestrial genomes. At this fundamental level, everyone and everything that exists in the universe, whether animate or inanimate, is intimately related. And because all of this living and not-yet-living stuff owes its ultimate origin to a common genesis event (the Big Bang), we are all related in a family way."

Engage Yourself

Question 1: Ask yourself, “What would happen if it were possible to connect all the brains of all the people in the world, into one great brain?” If you were to ask Robert Tercek, one of the most esteemed designers of interactive media in the world, this would be how he would answer you [link to video here, if needed].

Summarize the main statements of Tercek in your own words.

Question 2: How can a person understand what is happening in the complex and unexpected world in which s/he lives?

Question 3: Read the following section from the above transcript text, which speaks about criteria for human evaluation:

“We need to consider the person, to examine him, to measure him, solely and only to the extent that he is found to be ready to be integrated in a good society, and by means of this, to design and shape himself. In summary, our entire purpose and goal is to clarify how we can provide a good environment to each and every person, and not to relate to what he is now. Instead, from now on, we build the environment.”

Consider this: In what form do you think it is worthwhile to give an evaluation to children, to youth, and to adults regarding their apparent readiness to be integrated into a good society?

Please select below all, that in your opinion, are good societal promotions for integration, and add some of your own ideas as well.

Please add your own suggestions here:

Question 4: In the transcript text, use was made of the word “integration”. Write the meaning of the term in your own words, according to your understanding.

Question 5: According to what do we measure a person in this new era?

Question 6: What pushes a person beyond a state of individual concern to a state of collective concern?
