I SEE A TREE: Our world inside out PDF Print E-mail

 Consequences of a shift in consciousness

We start our inquiry with the simple sentence from a first grade reader: “I see a tree.”

We will look into the questions: “What is a thing? And “How do you know?”  

Our inquiry is parallel to an old Zen saying: first there is a tree, then a no-tree, then a known tree.

 

1. I See a Tree

2. Real Outer World and Knowing the world.

3. Tree and Known Tree

4. How do you know? Cognitive science view of how we see a tree

5. Mind The Gap: Three gaps in the perceptual process

Observer Participator and Precipitator

Knowing is not neutral: your looking affects the world you are looking at.    A tree only appears as a definite thing when it is measured, i.e. known or observed.

7. Inside/Out: Radical Shift in perspective: 

Only one shift is needed, but it is so radical you may not want to do it. It is a shift in consciousness that turns our world view inside-out, outside-in.  It is a shift of “consciousness” from the little bubble above the head of the observer, to consciousness pervading everything in the world.  Remove the boundary of inside and outside altogether. Then you are ready!  One two three, jump!

6. Consciousness and The Brain.

“The right brain has nothing left, and the left brain does nothing right.” Greveby

 

Cognitive science mostly assumes that the mind and consciousness arise from brain activity and the firing of neurons.

5. Mind The Gap: Three gaps in the perceptual process

It is necessary to keep reminding ourselves that all knowledge of our environment from which the world of physics is constructed, has entered in the form of messages transmitted along the nerves to the seat of consciousness.   --Sir Arthur Eddington [The Nature of the Physical World, 276-81]
