There are many types of spirits, all of which behave willingly in relation to the Self. It is the goal of the Self to realize the spirits. (Drugs bring on false spirits). The anima is the soul of reincarnation. Psychology is the spirit of emotion. Sometimes stimulus leads to a fossil self which eventually becomes authentically born, through a fossil reality. The fossil is false, and yet the resulting spirit is true. The freedom of the mind to choose elements of the intellect maintains the authenticity of the Anima in conscious re-existence within the Fossil World. True spirit is partly pure Psychology, but it is also moreover the realization of the Many Spirits. Mana is the communication of spirit, and can become exaggerated if one’s significance is not yet great. Great spirits can tolerate mana, often using it whimsically. Magical enchantment is the essence of location, and by having location, has no location. Enchanters are selfish and greedy in this respect, but also some of the best people and have renounced the False World, and are rewarded for this. Sorcerers enjoy the generosity of God, and have often abandoned sensation in favor of Mythical Psychology: the objective perception of Archetypes in their own Inherent Emotion. Sorcerers know the language of mythology, and have often been enchanters before. These truths seem hollow to those who have not yet perceived the vital root of their veridity.
Ostensibly God already answered the only question we wouldn’t know the answer to when he created existence!
God was asking: ‘What is nothing?’ ‘How can it be nothing?’ ‘What is divine about nothing?’ Etc.
Asking questions about nothing with a lot of power is like creating reality.
Alternately, you might believe that reality is eternal and the nature of consciousness is the unsolved question.
However, it is possible to see that consciousness is a means to an end to some extent. Highly expensive, often slightly disappointing.
As soon as consciousness seems to become cheap, it bears fruit. At that point we can define consciousness as paradoxical.
To the primitive tool-building brain all that consciousness needs is a reason to live, and some form of technicalism to mull into thoughts, or some equivalent thing to turn into emotions, or both, etc.
At this point you may find it is easier to understand consciousness.
Consciousness is holy, so far as that is possible. It is also an attempt to process the worst problems, and to find the best solutions.
I think I have heard someone define it as ‘a holy paradox’. Other definitions could be proposed, often relating to the soul, transformation, attributes, powers, and modes of existence.
