science from one century is magics from another.
– if someone tells you of manipulating energy with their hands, it sounds pretty esoteric. lord of the rings kind of thing.
– but you have been doing this all day. all our tools are energy manipulations. we use symbols and representations to associate causes and effects, so we can do things that do things in response.
we are programmers of the world.
(which means, strictly, that we are able to choose.)
but this understanding about language also means that, maybe, we and everything that exists are simply machinery that do things in response to the others. (a relational reality.
(which brings us back to the question of choice))
our consciousness is a process of waching – unaware of the future (at least not always) – to this energy flux flowing through.
creating a representation of one’s attention: a map to guide one through physical phenomena around (other energy fluxes).
<- this is consciousness ->
a relation between representation and stimulus. a software.
