Summarizing the observations thus far, then, it has been observed that, in contradiction of Descartes’ exclusive focus on the “I which thinks” as the spatially-localized and fundamental unit of human consciousness; there are—contrariwise, in fact, and from a rigorously scientific perspective—three, at least initially, non-spatial modes of human consciousness: thought, feeling, and the annihilation of both thought and feeling through doubt. In other words, from a rigorously scientific perspective, there is neither a ‘thinker’, a ‘feeler’, nor a ‘doubter’. Rather, in accordance with Occam's Razor, there are only non-spatial modes of human consciousness consisting merely of thoughts, feelings (the principal feeling being fear), and ‘doubts’ (that is, while thoughts and feelings can reasonably be considered to be ‘things’ which, in some way, have ‘mass’; doubts are more similar to ‘anti-things’ not having any ‘mass’, but consisting of, in effect, the annihilation of such ‘things’ as thoughts and feelings).
But this very observation of thought, feeling, and the annihilation of thought and feeling through doubt requires, in and of itself, the existence of another mode of consciousness. And that mode of consciousness is the “observing consciousness”—a consciousness which, similar to doubt, is non-spatial and exists ‘prior’, ‘subsequent’, ‘apart from’ and completely ‘other than’ not only thought and feeling; but, also, the direct annihilation of thought and feeling through doubt. Thus, there is, in fact, neither any philosophical nor scientific support for the conclusion that human consciousness is a spatial entity. Nor, of course, is there any “observer”, but merely a mode of consciousness described as the “observing consciousness”--a mode of consciousness Revealed through the Vision of the “Son of man” and the Revelation of the “resurrection”, implied in Character Analysis, touched upon by Jungian analysts, and of which the “observer” of classical physics, the “observer” (moving at the speed of light) of the Special Theory of Relativity, and the “observer” of quantum physics, ‘entangled in the observation’ (Quantum Physics and Ordinary Language, T. Bergstein), are, in confirmation of the observations in Thomas Kuhn’s The Structure of Scientific Revolutions, merely ‘special cases’.
According to Genesis 1:27:
God Created man in the image of Himself, in the image of God He Created him, male and female He Created them.
The Modes of Human Consciousness Reconsidered
Prior to the emergence of the “I which thinks”, the “I which feels” and the “I which doubts”, however, is a consciousness which is in the act of spatializing itself through self-reflection. And, prior to the consciousness which reflects upon itself as a spatialized consciousness is a non-spatial and non-temporal consciousness which is described as, by definition, unable to reflect upon itself because it has not yet reflected upon itself (that is, neither time nor space begins until the occurrence of this self-reflection). This is the consciousness symbolized in the Revelation of John as the “dragon”.
And prior to the non-spatialized consciousness which is unable to reflect upon itself is a non-spatialized consciousness capable of reflecting upon itself, and with the knowledge of itself as a non-spatial, non-temporal “observing consciousness” (See also, “Details of the Manifestation of the Fractal Prophecies of Daniel” in regards to the “kings of the East”), which is symbolized in Chapter 12 of the Revelation of John and Chapter 12 of Daniel with the Hebrew term “Mi cha el”—which, translated, means “Who is like God?”
Having observed that the four fundamental modes of human consciousness—that is, thought, feeling, doubt and observation—are, in essence, non-spatial [although they can, of course, be illusionally and delusionally ‘spatialized’ on the basis of the concepts of a ‘thinker’, a ‘feeler’, a ‘doubter’ and an ‘observer’ (thus, the “observer” of classical physics, but not the “observer” of either the Special Theory of Relativity nor quantum physics)]—it then becomes instructive to note that these modes of human consciousness are, in fact, symbolically represented as, respectively, the “beast of the earth”, the “beast of the sea” (see the beginning of the “Second Meditation” of Descartes), the “dragon”, and by “Michael” as well as the “rider on the white horse” in the Revelation of John. And the first two of these modes of consciousness are also symbolized in Daniel Chapter 11 as, respectively, the “king of the South” and the “king of the North”.
Western philosophy, theology and science (physics, biology and psychology, for example), on the other hand, proceed from the assumption that human consciousness is, on the contrary, localized in both time and space; the ultimate consequence of which is the creation of a media, a political system, a legal system, an economic system, a medical system, a religious system (the ultimate consequence of Jewish, Christian and Muslim theology is a mutually-annihilating conflict between Judaeo-Christian civilization and Islamic civilization) and, not surprisingly, a military system firmly dedicated to the propagation and perpetuation of the spatialization of consciousness, duality, conflict, violence, extreme violence, and self-annihilating violence (suicide bombers and nuclear weapons, for example); the most likely consequence of which is, all things remaining the same, the utter annihilation of human civilization itself.
The Vision of the “Son of man” [received by, among others, Hagar (Genesis 16:13), Moses, Isaiah, Ezekiel, Daniel, Jesus, Mary (The Gospel of Mary in the Nag Hammadi Codices)--and, interestingly enough, Mary, not the mother of Jesus, was also Hagar ‘raised from the dead’-- John and Mohammed]; and the Revelation of the “resurrection” (including the Revelation of the Memory of Creation--Genesis 2:7--and the revelation of the memories of previous lives--Isaiah 26:19, Daniel 12:2, etc.) Reveal and establish the existence of a mode of consciousness—hereinafter referred to as either the “observing consciousness” (Krishnamurti) or the consciousness of the knowledge of Truth—which is both ‘prior’ and ‘subsequent’ to, ‘apart’ from, and completely ‘other’ than the normal waking consciousness localized in space, limited in time to the biological life of a particular human organism, described by Western psychology, and originating in the Cartesian “I think, therefore I am”; or, more deeply, generally (and ‘classically’), the image or ‘geometric metaphor’ which underlies the common assumption of the existence of a “self” (which is considered to be ‘inside’ or ‘internal’) as opposed to a “not self” (which is considered to be ‘outside’ or ‘external’). [The previous sentence is best read without taking a breath.]
