vis a vis



Ingo Swann (08Feb01)

 The first purpose of this Section 5 is to provide a function within this Website in which exploratory hypothesis and speculation can be indulged and expanded upon.

This is in contrast to Section 1, the Ingo Swann Database Regarding the Biomind Superpowers, in which hypothesis and speculation are held to the minimum.

 As most realize, HYPOTHESIS refers to “a tentative assumption made in order to draw out and test its logical or empirical consequences,” and SPECULATION is defined as “to meditate on or ponder a subject.” 

Speaking in the ideal, the basic function of hypothesis and speculation is not to make conclusions, but to juggle and contrast information packages and numerous topics, so that new, better, or even unsuspected understanding might be achieved.

The second purpose is to continue to point up that average definitions of the human mind (including its superpower components) are inadequate, if not useless, in the full face of the human mind itself.

 Indeed, the instrumental nature of the human mind is so remarkable as to be awesome, and so it is easily discovered that mere words fail to bring fuller description to it.

 A dispassionate survey of definitions of the human mind reveals that although a small variety of its aspects are identified, the sum of all of the definitions leaves many more refined aspects in the shadows.  This includes modern scientific definitions, and even occult and esoteric definitions as well. 

None of the definitions of the mind are wrong per se, but the definitional process of identifying the larger nature of the mind is incomplete, and probably vastly so.

One reason for this is that such definitions are NOT derived from or based upon visible functions and attributes of the mind itself.  Instead, and as will be elaborated in Part 1 to follow, the definitions that do come into existence are set up by this or that societal order, and so the definitions usually reflects the limits of knowledge within each of those orders.

This clearly implies that definitions of mind on Earth are little more than socio-determined ones.  They are based on societal concepts and not on impartial and full observations of mind itself, which transcends all such concepts. 

The human mind, both in essence and in manifest functions, DOES transcend all socio-determined situations - BECAUSE all such situations are products of the overall human mind itself.

In the larger perspective of this, it can therefore be understood that ANY definitions of mind that are socially derived merely reflect some kind of socio-control agenda regarding how the mind should or should not be thought of, as contrasted to what mind actually is in all its magnificence and potential powers.

If we can think that any definitions of mind that we learn about via education have been established merely within self-limiting contexts of various kinds of socio-control agendas, then we would expect to discover that mind has NOT been examined and defined at the all-inclusive human species level. 

In fact, there would be no apparent reason to undertake such an examination – in the absence of factors that might make it NECESSARY to do so.

This is much the same as saying that Earth societies would separately continue to identify and define mind only via the thinking-lenses of those societies, for there is no obvious reason to do otherwise.

However, it could occur that Earth societies might encounter ANOTHER species having powers of mind at least commensurate with, but perhaps advanced beyond our own species. 

Of course, this kind of encounter is, and has been, a pure speculation – with the exception (discussed in Part 1) of recent and remarkable developments in advancing astrophysics that are in process of converting the speculation into something akin to a semi-concrete hypothesis of actual possibility.

In any event, if mind, mind powers, and intelligence within the context of another species, perhaps more powerful than our own, needed to be understood, the process of doing so would ALSO mean that deeper knowledge of the mind quanta of our own species would have to be illuminated more clearly and intimately.

“Another species,” of course, can easily refer to one that is extraterrestrial, largely because we do not experience here on Earth another species equipped with mind-power-intelligence that is commensurate with our own.

The historical human experience on Earth has merely been to encounter other social orders, the various patterns of which all download from the mind-mental-intelligence attributes of our species as a whole.

Since many aspects of our species mind have been denied authenticity within the limiting contexts of this or that societal order, it cannot really be said that fuller knowledge packages of mind itself have been achieved beyond the limited sum of those contexts.

If, however, our species were to encounter another species, especially an extraterrestrial one “more developed” than ours, then it would have to be concluded, at some point, that our own mind-mental-intelligence attributes are, well, “less developed” BY COMPARISON.

It is this COMPARISON, and evidence for it, that can be explored by hypothesis and speculation – from which no conclusions need be drawn.
