a continuum of realized thought (11:40)
Updated: Sep 26
In another video, I explored the idea of our physical reality as realized mind & our "mental" reality - imagination, insight, etc. - as unrealized mind. This brief video supplements that idea by applying that model to thought. My theory is that when we experience thoughts that feel hazy, incomplete, gooey, choppy, we are experiencing thoughts in their less-than-fully realized state. When we experience a thought as a coherent expression - e.g., "that leaf is brown and red" - that thought is realized, which, for a human, means it has achieved a physical form in the brain (neurons sparking certain ways) that can be translated into a physical expression such as speech or writing or sign language.
