Quote Unquote Poetic Naturalism (First Prelude) ⇒ Kirno Sohochari

Quote: 1.1: The trick is to think of life as a process rather than a substance. When a candle is burning, there is a flame that clearly carries energy. When we put the candle out, the energy doesn’t “go” anywhere. The candle still contains energy in its atoms and molecules. What happens, instead, is that the process of combustion has ceased. Life is like that: it’s not “stuff”; it’s a set of things happening. When that process stops, life ends.” 

Quote: 1.2:Life is a process, not a substance, and it is necessarily temporary. We are not the reason for the existence of the universe, but our ability for self-awareness and reflection makes us special within it.”

… Human’s mind intellect attributed the quality that flowers are beautiful or rotten things are stinking due to this or that chemical reaction. Nature itself is neither poetic nor non-poetical. It’s just functioning and that’s it. However, our proactive sensory organs and brain cannot exist without having the attributing wordings. Poetic Naturalism has needed to serve the purpose of our understanding about the reality-features, and it has done accordingly our own adherence.

Purported Gist: The separation between Process and Substance in life’s context is not necessarily a good trick. Life is the indifferent combination of those two essentials. A process cannot work if the substance is absent there and to the opposite substance can never be identifiable as substance except having any presence of process within it. Process means set of action. Something is happening within the substance which at later will be named by life. The candle’s energy is itself the substance of the candle. When the energy ceased within the candle in a dysfunctional state we cannot say that nothing is present there! The candle’s energy present in that idle state with its combustion capacity of activating the atomic structure through the process. That’s why we cannot say no substance existed in reality or avoided it to consider it abstract and absurd for any scientific quest. The energy is itself the substance on that idle state.

Life is the identical twin of the substance and process. Energy is the substance of life where it brings itself in life through the set of activities that we called process. Yes, when the process has stopped life come to its end but the burning energy remained over there as the substance to make a new start, maybe in a different life form. Otherwise, the question remained unsolved that, —where the destroyed energy has gone after the ends of life. Meanwhile, we know energy cannot vanish by itself forever, instead of it transformed into a different state.

… This autonomy is the reality, attributed by none. The beauty and fragrance of flowers and the stinking smell of rotten objects are completely purposeless, non-judgmental, and non-attributed in nature. They just follow the set of action which Carroll called process.

Quote: 1.3: “Even if we don’t go as far as Descartes’s belief in an immaterial soul that somehow interacts with our body, it’s tempting to visualize a dictatorial “self” inside our brain that is the locus of our self-awareness. Philosopher Daniel Dennett coined the term “Cartesian theater” to describe the supposed mental control room containing a tiny homunculus who gathers all of the input from our sensory organs, accesses our memories, and sends out instructions to the various parts of our bodies. Consciousness”

Purported Gist: According to the Indian ancient wisdom (if I am not wrong about the said things of Indian spiritual masters and the philosophical wordings on the Nondual existence of created beings within the naturally existent reality) ‘Awareness’ and ‘Consciousness’ are two separate things despite their analogical tone. Mind creates Awareness in the brain theatre in that context, but it cannot create Consciousness, because, Consciousness itself the apparent part of the never-created reality where the ‘Self’ itself stayed. The Descartes ‘cogito ergo sum’ (“I think, therefore I am”) is the result of the brain-wave function, in where the brain appeared as a receiving analyzer and responder of all sensory functions we have, but in Indian thought process it can be treated as Awareness of ‘Self’ who tried to understand the reality-factor that, —what reality is and why he is existed in there

‘Thought process’ is the byproduct of brain neurons, and we understand our existential reality or validated it through the harmonious wave of brain molecule. It reached the stage through the long evolution process of human life. However, ‘Self’ is the key activator of mind in the Indian context. It has contained the basic thought that —a ‘Self’ has its own existential validity and functionality to explore its presence in a reality. ‘Self’ itself is that who can ‘Think’ and who is able to identify his original reality-state in the never-ending reality paradigm. No immaterial (God or Ghost-like) spiritual essence is required for the ‘Self’ to understand the reality when it realized the nondual fact that, —a ‘Self’ is an integral part of the never born and never-ending reality.

… Who created the omnipresence reality is immaterial in that discussion-frame. There is nothing to find when ‘Self’ discovers itself as the reality, and when the meaning of ‘I amness’ itself reflects the ‘I am’ as a part of yonder cosmic reality. That’s why none is the creator of such like Consciousness state. It’s the ever belonging reality state, stayed as undefined and everything is autonomously functioning in there.
… … …

Consciousness is not Awareness in Indian non-dualistic panorama. Consciousness itself the omnipresence cosmic reality in where the ‘Self’ belongs as a substance and process. Who created the omnipresence reality is immaterial in that discussion-frame. There is nothing to find when ‘Self’ discovers itself as the reality, and when the meaning of ‘I amness’ itself reflects the ‘I am’ as a part of yonder cosmic reality. That’s why none is the creator of such like Consciousness state. It’s the ever belonging reality state, stayed as undefined and everything is autonomously functioning in there.

This body (more specifically the brain chamber) is the abiding place of Awareness but Consciousness has not required any container to stay within it, since, Consciousness itself the reality, a complete Nothingness State, from where everything was commencing once in life. Awareness has gone when the bodied ‘Self’ died but the cosmic reality where the ‘Self-Awareness’ mind appeared (and disappeared by death) has never gone. The fact is simple, —reality itself the essence of never created and never-ending reality. It stayed beyond over the epistemological or ontological wording made by human’s mind.

Everything stayed in that reality, germinated in there, died and then transformed into unknown shape in there. When the ‘Self’ uses its awareness to realize the fact it realized the true state of Consciousness at this moment. It is the self-created reality where the ‘Self’ itself belonging until its bodied death, and after that ‘Self’ get Samadhi on that never-ending reality.

Quote: 1.4: “Poetic naturalism is a philosophy of freedom and responsibility. The raw materials of life are given to us by the natural world, and we must work to understand them and accept the consequences. The move from description to prescription, from saying what happens to passing judgment on what should happen, is a creative one, a fundamentally human act. The world is just the world, unfolding according to the patterns of nature, free of any judgmental attributes. The world exists; beauty and goodness are things that we bring to it.”

Quote: 1.5: “The meaning we find in life is not transcendent, but it’s no less meaningful for that.”

Quote: 1.6: “This is a universe that is advancing toward a goal; it is one that is caught in the grip of an unbreakable pattern.”

Quote: 1.7: “The world keeps happening, in accordance with its rules; it’s up to us to make sense of it and give it value.”

Quote: 1.8: “It doesn’t include math or logic, nor does it address issues of judgment, such as aesthetics or morality. Science has a simple goal: to figure out what the world actually is. Not all the possible ways it could be, nor the particular way it should be. Just what it is. There’s”

Purported Gist: The Poetic Naturalism has neither beauty nor it has contained any ugliness. It’s an active state where the geometric fractals are belonged sans having any reason. The fractals of a tree or any living and non-living object haven’t any deep purpose to have appeared in such shape and patterns. They are just functioning in the realm of nature sans any commandment or planning of any Master. This autonomy is the reality, attributed by none. The beauty and fragrance of flowers and the stinking smell of rotten objects are completely purposeless, non-judgmental, and non-attributed in nature. They just follow the set of action which Carroll called process.

Human’s mind intellect attributed the quality that flowers are beautiful or rotten things are stinking due to this or that chemical reaction. Nature itself is neither poetic nor non-poetical. It’s just functioning and that’s it. However, our proactive sensory organs and brain cannot exist without having the attributing wordings. Poetic Naturalism has needed to serve the purpose of our understanding about the reality-features, and it has done accordingly our own adherence of the mind-machine, the Self-Awareness.

The reality is meaningless but we needed to create meaning due to the serve the interest of curious, answer-seeker, purposeful mind. When we are aware to serve this reality has a meaning, otherwise, there has no meaning which can stay beyond over the human understanding. The reality is dual when we tried to denote it and the same reality is nondual when no awareness of mind present in there, to realize it with an observable mind.

… Life is the identical twin of the substance and process…
