The Universe in our Head
There is no 'reality around us'.
Everything we perceive, is sensed by cells in our body.
The result of that sensation, is a mental construct within your own head.
The following describes what takes place - as far as we can imagine - in linking creation with realisation.
Starting point is “the sensations of a cell”.
Bruce Lipton describes how DNA is built up by the activity of specific proteins.
The information and materials - at the cell surface - are used for that purpose.
The result is the storage of information of our context, within our body.
James Oshmann described how the connective tissue links us to our context.
Skin, organ membranes, cell membranes and DNA are therein directly connected.
Like the cell membrane, connective tissue is an interface; and two-sided.
Like all body materials, connective tissue operates on/by electromagnetic impulses.
Lynn Margulis described how the Eukaryote Cell formed out of symbiosis of microbes.
Four different forms of microbes combined, and form the basis of all life forms.
Capacities to deal with Earth, water, air and light are now integrated and interrelated.
Together they bridge the 4 Elements: Earth, Water, Air and Plasma.
In our body cells we see how the whole body is made up out of transmutations between these 4 phase states.
Body cells excrete materials, such as proteins, which makes the physical form of our body.
These materials are circulated between the cells as part of their intercellular communication.
The production of the proteins takes place with the, various, living cells.
Constructing our image of ‘Reality’
Within the cells we can see that DNA, Enzymes, Proteins and Amino Acids are all interrelated.
In our digestion we can see that, and how, complex foods are digested to simple nutrients.
The nutrients are what the cells themselves live, feed, on.
Food quality is determined by the 'spectrum' (relationship) of the "food nutrients".
In this manner, e.g. calcium in the mountains can enter the blood, the bone and neurones.
Neural activity depends in the calcium, blood availability, bone deposits and trips to 'mountains'.
In our body we see that our 'travelling around over the world' relates, directly, to body function and composition.
In the same manner we see the composition of our 'environment' in our body.
As result of cell function, we have a 'mineral' quality to our body; excreted by living cells.
In our gut system we recognise "vegetative Functions", with guts as roots and lungs as leaves.
Our organ system represents our 'Animal" (animus/anima) characteristics: travelling in context.
In our brain (and body) we find the 'imprint' of that environment in our body: “the world in our head”.
The universe inverse in our brain
This world-image first starts with sensory cells on the body surface (cf: the microbes).
These signals are then relayed (Fourier encoded) via the (plant-like) nerves.
These nerves entwine in (organ like) "plexus" balancing out the impulses.
The outcome integrates in the brain: our (inverted) image of the world around us.
The Spinal Cord links the sensations in the brain to those of the body.
The Sensory Nerves links the awareness in the brain to the our skin surface awareness.
The internal processing in the brain therein reflects that what has been described for the cells by Bruce Lipton.
The cells in the brain therein reflect the same function as connective tissues: linking body and mind awareness in brain cells.
The Hind Brain ("Krishna") relays the whole-body-awareness; compare it to the brain cell.
The Right Brain offers an interfacing function (perspective) , compare it to a plexus.
The Left Brain provides directed relay of information signals, compare it to a neurone.
The Forebrain ("Arjuna") enables focused perception of part-in-a-whole (‘sensory cell’).
In the brain we thus have the total information of the functioning of the body, in the cerebellum.
In the brain we have the full information of the signals of our context, in our cortex.
Within the brain we have a limbic memory of our past experience of the relationship between them.
In the middle of the brain (pineal gland) we have a locus of freedom of choice: we can decide how we relate them.
“The Kingdom Within”
Responses in the Pineal Gland are relayed to the hypothalamic axis; regulating the glands that regulate the organs
The hypothalamic response - hormones and neurones - regulate if we opt for animal and/or vegetative response (Flight/Fight//Fear/Faint).
The organ glandular response operates the internal adaptation of our body (inflammation/suppression) by which it re-sets its boundaries versus its context.
This conditions, creates, the context for the body cells to live/die in; and the cascade determines our inner state of health in mind and body.
The ‘kingdom within” - also described in fairy tales, is the pineal-hypothalamic-gland-organ axis.
Pineal gland (king), Hypothalamus (court), organ glands (government), organ cells (population).
"Plato's Cave" is part of "The Kingdom Within".
What Plato described as the Cave is the optical cortex at the rear of the skull.
The “Inner Kingdom” mentioned by religions and mystics refers to our inner degree of freedom.
We operate freedom of choice in relating body sensations of organ functions to sensations from sensors on the body surface.
Between the two we operate freedom of choice, and experience the feedback of the changes.
Together this forms the basis of our experience of life, and realisation in/of creation.
The world that we perceive, exists in our mind only.
Reality is a realisation.
For the realisation of creation we must see that the world that we know is our creation.
The inverse is by far more important: in seeing the world that we know, and can know, we get to know our capacities and scope for creation.
