Finite Personalities

fpSigmund Freud said that the mind is like an iceberg with a small tip rising above the surface, and a massive core down below. Most of us cling to that tiny island, obsessed with our thinking, and lose touch with our subconscious mind, the place of dreams, fantasy, intuition, and unity.

There are a finite amount of personality types embedded within the spark of conscious awareness given to the individual from the source. I’ll define ‘the source’ as the collective consciousness or collective intelligence manifesting itself as the universe. The universe is a cohesive unit with a progressive, evolutionary nature. Like a genetic algorithm, the universe began as a simple spark,which has been modifying, manipulating itself, and expanding since the event we called the Big Bang. This initial algorithm has blossomed into the complex reality in which we now live. Everything has intelligence whether awareness exists or not. A tree contains intelligence in it’s DNA which defines how it grows. Animals have intelligence whether they recognize it or not. Each individual entity retains a thread linking it back to the source, thus unifying all of creation. Even the sun and the planets express intelligence through their progression of existence and ultimate demise. All mass contains energy contains intelligence.

Intelligence is pervasive about the universe- non-localized because like energy, it is interchangeable with mass. As the source manifest within this reality, intelligence fuels its progressive evolution attaining awareness through life. Each of us contain a portion of source, perceiving ourselves and each other as independent… but we are one.  It could be said that God is observing us through ourselves. Humans seek comfort of the divine through many things, power, money, religion… but these are all empty promises because God exists in ourselves. As a society, and as a culture, we have forgotten our own divinity. We’ve lost our purpose and become robots, identifying only as the bodily form our awareness inhabits. Much conflict exist because of our apparent differences, irrelevant disagreements about truth, and delusion. That delusion is the source of evil.

The world suffered a significant loss with the rise of Abrahamic religions because most other sacred texts were lost or destroyed. We found some of them- the Gnostic Gospels, the Dead Sea Scrolls, hieroglyphs in Egypt and the America’s, etc. These jive with ancient Eastern texts describing methods for communing with our true nature- our unified divinity. They point out that the nature of awareness is clouded by delusion. The question I can answer is why would intelligence turn against itself why does it seem like intelligence is conspiring to destroy itself? Delusion? That seems to be the case at least on this tiny portion of existence. Intelligence or consciousness is conserved and can neither be created nor destroyed. It just is. It manifests, experiences the progression of time, and when it’s biological host dies, it is redistributed in the cycle of existence. If we could condense the lifetime of the universe into a perceivable amount, it to acts as a cycle, pumping out, in, out, in, creating the illusion of time.

No wonder love exists. It is the remnant of our unified nature, instinctually drawing us together and motivating us to help each other. Our conscious awareness has identified as being mundane, transitory, and characteristic of the material world. It glows like a background radiation permeating the universe.

Authority

I’ve always questioned authority and the conventions of society to the extent that upon extreme analysis and criticism, many aspects seem pointless and arbitrary.  I certainly recognize the importance of having and following rules and I understand the significance of conformity, but my general viewpoint on these things is very objective in that regard.  Rather than feeling a part of the system of conventions, I feel more like an outside observer, further promoting my perception of analysis.

I don’t recognize this tendencies a bad thing in general, although it has caused me some difficulty in understanding and adopting to.  Now that I’m moving past the stage of rebellion that it has caused, I see many benefits.  What I’m understanding further is the underlying cause of this tendency, as well as how I can utilize all the aspects of my personality as an asset rather than a liability.
I do believe that the better I am able to interact and communicate with others the more I will be able to understand and express myself.  That is something that is extremely important in my life at this point.  I know that it has often been my lack of good communication that has gotten me into trouble in the past and possibly contributed to my critique of authority, and aspects of society that so many people seem to take for granted.  In this regard I believe the more I communicate, the more I grow.
I spent the majority of my life considering who I am, the nature of my self identity.  When I was young, until about age 13, I understood my identity in terms of my mom and dad.  Both of my parents are educators, my mother at the elementary level, and my dad at the collegiate level, so I highly identified with education.  Until the age of 13, I had adopted many of the values of my parents, things like using reason and compassion, being tolerant, considerate of others, and acting with integrity and self-discipline.
Throughout my adolescence, my identity was shaped and reshaped by the friends I hung around with, and more fundamentally by the culture at large.  As I rebelled against authority, I developed a sense of ego, believing I needed to gain acceptance by being and doing things that attracted attention.  This led me down a path of insolence and misbehavior, causing me to get into trouble and seek deep within myself for answers…

Atheism as an Alternative Belief System

Atheism is the disbelief in the existence of deities and the supernatural.  Society hs a misconception that atheism is a ‘satanic’ or immoral system of belief, or lack thereof.  This negative stigma, or stereotype, has developed over thousands of years for many reasons; the primary of which arises from the Church’s influence on our culture, both modern and historic.  Literally, atheism, or a-theism, means non-theism, or more simply, the absence of belief in deities, although many equate it with anti-theism(opposition to theism), or anti-religion(opposition to religion), despite most atheists not holding such views.
It is possible that the negative connotations about atheism come from the fact it, at least with respect to modern religions, lacks a dependence on faith.  Atheists need not have faith in something they disbelieve.  One thing, often overlooked in our predominately Judeo-Christian society, is that the vast majority of individuals disbelieve in the existence of every god worshipped through history except the god of the Bible.  Atheists just expand that belief to include this common, modern deity.

Most people in our society are brought up with the belief that there is a God and that the Bible, the Torah, or the Koran is the testament of His creation and interaction with the world.  These ‘Holy’ books include passages about the creation of existence and the happenings from the ‘beginnings of time.’  They describe a brutal, malevolent God in older gospels and a tolerant, loving God in the newer ones, but they are all based on the same supernatural premise.  The church and similar entities have used many tactics to convert and captivate believers and reaffirm their faith.  It has become uncharacteristic of the people in our society to sway from the religion of their families.  We are brought up believing what we see and what we are told, and rarely question what we do.

Atheism is a positive, rational alternative to religious dogma and superstition, but a person must question their faith, their core assumptions and beliefs about the world, to learn the beauty and validity in this change in perspective.  Many people are not willing to question their belief systems and their faith.  It seems almost disregarded that any concept of creation, any truth behind existence, written, preached, or otherwise, that is not based on science, is fiction.  Made up.  To truly accept and understand atheism is to look, uncolored by our preconceptions based on upbringing, religious teachings, and scripture, at the truth of reality, uncovered by science.

Contrary to religion, and intelligent design, modern cosmology presents a view of creation almost incomprehensible to our minds.  Time and space sprang into existence during the big bang, or as explained by the more recent inflationary theory.  As it spread out and cooled, heavier elements formed creating stars and planets.  Over time organic molecules began to develop and proteins and then life emerged.  Natural selection defined the process of evolution, weaker organisms dying off, stronger, more adaptive organisms flourishing.  Complex life developed through a frenzy of interactions, adaptations, and competition where only the strongest survive.  Mammals, greater apes, and then modern humans evolved; creatures became intelligent.  As described by quantum mechanics, matter exists simultaneously as both a particle and a wave.  Our particle nature is represented in our body,  and our wave-like nature is represented by our consciousness, or our souls.  The belief of the atheist is that nowhere in here is a need for the supernatural or a god.

From the atheist perspective, it is not a lack of or disbelief in anything which is intriguing.  It is the beauty of an autonomous universe which has sprung into existence to include the complexity that we see around us.  As life became more complex, and began thinking, creating, inventing, recording, and questioning our surroundings, developing governments and societies, we found ourselves wanting more, looking to the supernatural for explanations, and creating false premises upon which religion and faith has become grounds for wars, persecution, and genocide.  Now that we have uncovered enough truth to see beyond these fabrications, atheists have chosen to recognize that gods are not necessary for our existence or purpose, and believe the world is no less beautiful.

…with all my ♥!
