4th Question

 

 

Discussing the “mysterious” or accessing the “Void” might seem overly abstract, so let’s approach this from a different angle.

Imagine sustaining a brain injury that robs you of the ability to understand or produce words. Life would continue, wouldn’t it? In some ways, it might even improve—you wouldn’t grasp criticisms, advertisements, or political rhetoric. You could carry out most daily routines and avoid arguments altogether. This raises a significant question.

Where does all of this originate, and where does it reside now? We’ve lost a part of the ‘upper iceberg,’ and now rely more on what lies beneath. At night, we sleep, the world moves on, and we dream. Where do these dreams come from? I propose they are gifts from the vast, submerged iceberg. And since we aim to access this part of ourselves at will, I pose an intriguing question:

Can we send dreams back? Everything within us conspires to shape our dreams. By sending a dream back, we message and program all that is within us.

Our dreams serve as the bridge between our inner and outer lives. Imagine the power of sending them back, allowing the top and bottom of the iceberg to truly know each other. We’ll call that connection “1eye.”

This naturally leads us to discuss suicide—a stark transition, but bear with me.

A profound confusion exists for many between “You” and “Yourself,” leading to a serious, life-wasting dilemma. This confusion distorts lives and can drive individuals to suicide.

When a depressed individual contemplates ending “Himself,” the direction is fundamentally incorrect. It’s actually “Yourself” that’s threatening “You.” Suicide becomes a destructive force, erasing one’s entirety.

 

 

 

The totality of your being is remarkable—your unique genetic code, your organs, every function within you, all beyond what words can capture. And none of it desires death.

And  so I wonder what your definition of life is.

Uttering “I am going to kill myself” might momentarily alleviate stress and worry, as though all problems are resolved. Yet, nothing truly changes except for the narrative in your mind. That visible portion of the iceberg might obliterate its entire existence without ever truly understanding or engaging with it.

Not this, but

Read David Eagleman’s Incognito   The Secret Lives of the Brain, wherein he has much exciting neuroscience .

He says:

 “The first thing we learn from studying our own circuitry is a simple lesson: most of what we do and think and feel is not under our conscious control. The vast jungles of neurons operate their own programs. The conscious you—the I that flickers to life when you wake up in the morning—is the smallest bit of what’s transpiring in your brain. Although we are dependent on the functioning of the brain for our inner lives, it runs its own show. Most of its operations are above the security clearance of the conscious mind. The I simply has no right of entry.

Your consciousness is like a tiny stowaway on a transatlantic steamship, taking credit for the journey without acknowledging the massive engineering underfoot.” 

 

Eagleman’s scientific contributions are invaluable, though his philosophical stance may be challenged. By adopting “1eye” in our mnemonic, we recognize and intend to utilize this insight. Contrary to Eagleman’s perspective, we plan to take the helm.

The Mind of the Martial Artist accesses the Void via your will, intent, and the images you play across the screen in your mind. I am going quick and simple for now, but consider that you get dreams from the Void at night, with The Mind of the Martial Artist we send them back.

The Void, the unseen portion of the iceberg, is the source of all creativity, genius, intuition, and brilliant performance. And we will access it, and use it. In this manner we will captain the ship.
