There are three primary perspectives, or states, of the mind. The first is the most commonly known; it is the state of singularity present with true knowledge (this is the common feeling of knowing God). This is the state which provides us our sanity.
Skipping the second for now, the third state of mind is the state of many beings, all congregating in the remembrance of a singular idea or ideology. This I call, “the state of many,” or, more simply, the number “3.”
The second, which is the topic of this post, is the state of duality. This state, along with the third state, seems to be a novel frontier or our collective awareness, although we may have been more aware in the past. They are important and mark a time in our history when we are moving on to thinking about new facets of reality; our history has been filled primarily with finding the first state, while entertaining other notions.
This state of duality manifests in many ways, one of them being the existence of two brain hemispheres, connected on a relatively small area, by the corpus callosum.
Each hemisphere of the brain is like an independent brain. Each one is fairly drastically different than the other, as is a fairly common belief. Generally, we believe the left side of the brain to carry a distinctly greater affinity toward analytical thinking, while the right side of the brain carries a distinctly greater affinity for artistic or aesthetic thinking.
They both carry the same knowledge of the self (assuming you have found resolute singularity), but they carry out the will which is supposed by the knowledge in ways rather alien to one another. Each hemisphere of the brain is a different personality of yourself. Internally, you have two personalities — right and left.
(Remember, according to science, the right brain controls the left side, and the left brain controls the right side. These understandings from science are wonderful for calibrating your perspective. When understanding your internal self, the process of depiction can be a tricky one, so having references is useful.)
This brings me to what I think is the best calibration tool and technique for remembering duality and finding the resolution of a common type of neural headache — congestion in the midbrain.
Remember, there is a gap between your hemispheres. It is here that there must naturally be a pronounced deviance. Remember that what deviates is the subjective and personable interpretation and implementation of the knowledge of the self — the definition of personality.
You have two personalities, and they agree at the connection of the hemispheres, for instance, at the corpus callosum (and related networks), and the voice (in singularity). The corpus callosum is like a glistening communications environment, where important words are found and realized. The corpus callosum and associated networks are paved by important words and their pronunciations.
At the corpus callosum, the voice the two hemispheres and the two sides of the body come together in an agreement and harmony. The voice sounds the patterns of the agreement between the hemispheres, and resolution-oriented and collaborative facilitation-oriented networks, for understanding and awareness, facilitating exchange, resembling a commercial interchange.
A benefit of practicing the practice of duality — with one of the possible practices including the realization and understanding that internally you are two brains with the same name but in different ways, is that you can find a way to reduce possible congestion at your midbrain. Midbrain congestion is a likely source of cognitive headache and difficulty. Through understanding the similarities and differences that reside in one’s brain, one can more comfortably understand the resolution process that occurs, not only in the brain, but in various aspects of the resolution of identity, perhaps shifting more subjective phenomena further from the center of the brain.
That and remembering the gap in your mind may be powerful. (It interesting and perhaps helpful to remember that there are no neurons in most of the middle of the brain.)
Continuing with physical and corporeal examples, the lungs are an example of duality, being rather disconnected from other body parts and each other — being fairly independent. Convening and realizing the thoughts and/or emotions that occur in and from one’s lungs can help one perceive the nature of duality.
Anecdotally, I have noticed that neither hemisphere of the brain knows the pronunciations of any words. You can try and observe this yourself — it is a fairly easy to see phenomenon. This is assuming you don’t misplace the center of your brain somewhere else (in an aggressive skewing of one’s perception).
It seems that the facet of pronunciation is a symbol of the agreement of the duality of the mind.
Each hemisphere, I believe, is generally entirely word-less, knowing only the math of logic, emotion, and music. Together, the mind finds the pronunciation of the word.
It’s convenient that our modern minds include a neural disconnection between hemispheres, which seems to gives us a more emotive subjective stereo appreciation of reality. Therefore, from that alone, the knowledge of the duality is perceived. Remember that no neural thinking, (perhaps radio amalgamation, however), is going on in most of the center of the brain. If you see it differently, realize there’s a communication error. Knowing what’s going on is generally all you need to resolve an issue. The mind functions nicely when guided by knowledge, as it is consistent with what the mind has already been doing.
If your mind has a split (commonly a front–back split, which can be a headache), it may be helpful remember that your mind was designed to split right to left, so it can be possible to remedy the splitting behavior by re-appropriating the desire to split to a left–right split, with the gap in between both of the hemispheres. This is in alignment with the idea of properly distributing one’s thinking, such that the system can function in peace with itself.
At the very center of your brain, there is no brain. It may be that the thalami understand and connect to the other side, producing the appearance of a larger center of the brain than there actually is (a common notion of the mind’s eye).
Additionally, there are the four ventricles and the cerebral aqueduct, which may provide a comfortable sense of quiet relaxation, without thought. Inside these areas are cerebral-spinal fluid, which may contributes to a soothing or sleeping feeling. Continuing, there are various facets of the mind and brain, each with their own qualities. Together, when they have found acceptance and truth, they form a collaborative system of love and joy.
It seems, by the nature of the questions we face and the characteristics of the world in which we live, by the logic of a sentient good-willing progression, we may be finding the end to the search for knowledge, having defined the self in its entirety. The topic after the first topic, designated by the number, “1,” is the topic of duality, which concerns the existence of quality and perception, which concerns the way knowledge appears to a person. It is by this reasoning, that we may be in a transition of topics from the first angel of the mind, knowledge, to the second angel of the mind, duality. I presume that we explore these topics until the totality of the topic has become known.
Aside from the corporeal example of duality, duality exists anywhere there is quality. From the understanding that one possesses from their own configuration of duality, one may better be able to understand the nature of the duality of many things. While one assumes the hemispheres to be benevolent, we do find instances of duality in the world where negativity is displayed. This is a way of quality, as well. It does not directly represent what it appears to be, but instead, through its understanding, it explains knowledge. It is similar in the brain, where while neither side is the entire brain, they both allude to the same brain and mind.
Today, we learn to see ourselves, and we appreciate the duality. After finding complete knowledge of the definition of the self, which is implied by enlightenment in the context of the totality of questions of the self, it seems we will then search for the truth of duality and thus subjectivity, exploring its inherent enigma of an unseen right and wrong.
This is because while the first angel was knowledge of what is (or the patterns of what is), the second angel is the look at knowledge (and the look of knowledge). This is the story of vision, personality, and subjective identity. After that, in the next story (billions of years from now), the singularity of yourself becomes like a star in the sky, illuminated by the infinite elaborations of the patterns of quality that you have found, and you see the many — clearly and distinctly (that is the third story — the story of many who bear the same name — it is the story of being a world, a society, and a machine).
So we begin, for probably some billions of years, to learn and witness the story of duality.
