As I mentioned previously, knowledge possesses no explicit quality. While it can be described, a qualitative analysis of knowledge itself can never be truly found. One may utilize quality to represent knowledge, but the knowledge itself is something technically unqualifiable.
Knowledge is steadfast and sturdy. With knowledge, a person can act as if automatic, allowing knowledge to make the decisions. Knowledge is the paramount state of existence, and the first angel in the chronology of the mind.
There are three fundamental states to our existence. They are, and can be explained in different ways: knowledge, quality (or duality), and complication (or plurality). The third state, the state of plurality, has been covered, such as with the lesson on cognitive awareness, the distributed nature of psycho-physiological systems, and the distributed nature of the psyche in general.
The second state, which gives way to perception, can be enjoyed, but it also can lead to err. All things which possess a quality exist in a comparative state. The quality that is possessed automatically suggests that other qualities exist, as well, as, again, quality is comparative.
Qualities alone can never represent knowledge, so without knowledge, qualities are generally meaningless — in this state, they are in a type of anti-state that we often qualify as a state of excessive Satan. The reason is that if there is no knowledge, then what the qualities mean becomes erratic and unpredictable. In this way, without knowledge, all perception falls apart.
However, we don’t live simply as knowledge. We enjoy the second and third state as well, and as thus, we do face the dangers of meaningless quality. When one has a resolved state of knowledge — that is, one is in a state of self-cohesion, acceptance, and agreement, then the qualities that are presented represent that knowledge. While each quality is an exaggeration of an aspect of knowledge, together they tell the story of knowledge, which is also of life.
Quality initially comes from the desire to see and the desire for duality. Originally, in the 0th state, a state many may refer to as “Shiva,” there was only goodness, but this goodness was unknown. In the first state, following the desire for a miraculous event — the beginning of knowledge — the goodness that existed was brought into a state of remembrance, bridging the timeliness of things together. After all the good was remembered, the second state sought to explore the details of the good. Goodness itself is a coherent and holistic being. However, in order to inspect it and to explore it, it has to be drawn into something. To do this, there is a little bit of a lie, as the drawing itself isn’t goodness, but it’s originally designed to look like it. With this second state, we can essentially witness the invisible knowledge of goodness and the glory of perfect and default sentience.
However, the second state, the advent of quality, introduced the idea of a devilish being. This is a mischievous being named, “the Devil.” What happens is that because the perception of knowledge is not fully accurate, distortions and perceptual lies are able to be perceived. If one believes a misperception, then one deviates from knowledge, just as quality itself deviates from knowledge. When one deviates from knowledge, the qualities the person experiences no longer orbit knowledge, but instead orbit a flawed belief system. When this happens, the qualities no longer mean goodness, but instead are evil as they become false. The salvation to such a unfortunate event is to practice secure, steadfast, and fully understood knowledge — understood even by the mind that deals with concepts which are more subtle than words generally allow. (Considering that language mostly reflects gradually altering existing social patterns, a large portion of one’s ability to discern truth is done without words. Unfortunately, this intuitive ability is often ignored, even though it clearly exists.)
Quality (which is of duality) can be a wonderous and amazing experience. Quality is significant of a path, of a direction, and of a story. It moves with the time and reflects the present. Quality is a fluid and dynamic substance. It explains and captivates, but it can also lead to the downfall of a person, if it is taken to be truth. One has to remember that no quality will ever be the truth, but one can use and enjoy qualities in a meaningful and healthy way.
One significant benefit of the state of quality, is that it serves to explain what was only knowledge before. The knowledge becomes seen, as a second kind of appreciation, and it becomes understood in a new way. Therefore, the state of quality is essential to our mind, although it is not the most primary state, which is knowledge, or remembrance (the consistency of God and the divine).
