The Collective Extended Mind

 

I am looking for an underlying baseline function of everything. I am hoping that this will give me a big picture of how the natural world operates and hence it will make it much easier for me to navigate every function that is riding on top of this basic function wave.

The baseline will be a line drawn through this whole article. Put it to a test and it will explain everything because it is the underlying process discovered through the past and is part of the collective extended mind in the ether and part of the natural laws of the Universe and its own unchanging repository.

Things to consider are:

The Natural law of the Universe.

The baseline for body-mind and how it works.

How these different entities couple to each other.

I am navigating some of this from experiential information and some from lectures I have been too and some from reading knowledge.

I obtained some experiential information from the dialogue between my mind and the process of making art in a studio. This has shown me the spectrum of my mind, and its limitations and what it means by “the dream of existence” in Buddhism. Mind constructs. The “new” in mind from insights.

My entry point to this narrative if from Rupert Sheldrake’s idea of where the mind is located and also the nature of the repository of the Cosmic Mind. This is what he says:

Morphic resonance is a process whereby self-organising systems inherit a memory from previous similar systems (other humans that came before us).

We all live off a collective memory of the same species. It is not just your memory or mine, but we work off all of them collected over the years and it is stored in the ether and acts as an extended mind.

The hypothesis of morphic resonance also leads to a radically new interpretation of memory storage in the brain and of biological inheritance. Memory need not be stored in material traces inside brains…..

and

And biological inheritance need not all be coded in the genes, or in epigenetic modifications of the genes; much of it depends on morphic resonance from previous members of the species. Thus each individual inherits a collective memory from past members of the species, and also contributes to the collective memory, affecting other members of the species in the future.

Memory is part of the cosmic repository. The collective memory is stored in the ether.

And here what are the characteristics of the natural law of nature:

In its most general formulation, morphic resonance means that the so-called laws of nature are more like habits.

Morphic Resonance

Here he is suggesting that natural laws “are more like habits” means that they are unthinking in nature. There is an administrative element to them in maintaining the balance. It cannot recognise or choose between you and me. It other aspects it is possible they work like AI (artificial intelligence)as the extended collective mind is self-learning because he suggests in the video that as each of us learns something new and unknowingly contributes to the collective mind, then the others coming after and attempting the same process finds it much easier to do as the information is already in the collective memory. You can find this in most learning processes as it is much easier on the second pass. So you can see why this can almost be true:

One can start a behavioural pattern and others attempting the process will find it a lot easier. Imagine Buddha and everything he had to go through and today we just cross our legs and meditate to find out what he discovered. Jesus, Lao Tse, and the rest of them and all the unknowns contributing every day to the collective memory which we are feeding off.

So there is a baseline to the cosmic repository which includes our collective extended minds. It also includes programs to many of the processes of human evolution. It includes everything that is blindingly “new” to us that we do not know about and only waiting to be discovered. It includes the future and our evolutionary path waiting to be discovered and we can only come to these by discovering our way through it. There is us creating our collective minds memory and there is the Cosmic mind memory containing all, including the future. We in the body-mind find the “new” by being silent and becoming like the fabric of the Cosmic Mind.

The evolution of our minds.

So what then is our mind and body:

Memory need not be stored in material traces inside brains, which are more like TV receivers than video recorders, tuning into influences from the past.

The body-mind is only a transmitter and a receiver.

Manifesting the “new” and the future from all probabilities and possibilities.

and when the mind is totally silent with no-mind:

The mind-body thinking processes:

The baseline will be a line drawn through this whole article. Put it to a test and it will explain everything because it is the underlying process discovered through the past and is part of the collective extended mind in the ether and part of the natural laws of the Universe and its own unchanging repository.

That is why the mystics have always said: we are all ONE.

One species, one collective mind, one Universe.

It is only this that separates us: The irony is that if it is created locally in one’s mind then it is also in the collective mind and the only way I can explain this is that the opposites are created and exist in the collective mind is so we can understand the middle way.

The precursor to the “Action of Truth”: listening to the voice of the silence.
