The Ascending Ladder of Mind
- The Mind
- The Psionicscape (Perspective / Qualia / Free Will / Determinism)
The Mind is a level constituted by conscious experience and intelligent thought. The attributes and modes of The Mind include perception, reason, imagination, memory, emotion, attention, and a competence for communication. Subsets of unconscious processes are also part of The Mind.
The Mind has its own branch of philosophy encompasses the nature of the mind, mental events, mental functions, mental properties, consciousness and their relationship to the physicalism of essence and existence.
Perception is what one can consider the result of the combined experience of all of one’s senses – the means by which someone is aware of the worldscape around them. It is the act of an individual’s ability to experience the world. From the basic senses such as sight and hearing, to those lesser known, such as proprioception or nociception, to the rare abilities to sense auras or magic – all of these senses together make up an individual’s perception of the world.
Reason is the intermediary of truth in all judgments—empirical as well as metaphysical. We form judgments about the worldscape around us all the time, without a second thought. We see a hand in front of us and judge it to exist; after a dream, we judge ourselves to have been dreaming and the dream’s contents to be illusory; we see the sun rise and assume that it orbits the earth. All of these judgments rely on categories, such as causality, which must arrange our sensory impressions. A principle that conforms to these conditions meets the “formal” conditions of truth. However, unless we are fundamentally confused about something, all our beliefs meet these conditions. In total, what separates objective error from true cognition is that true cognitions must find a definite place within a single, unified experience of the world. Since reason is an important source of the unifying structure of experience, it proves essential as an intermediary of empirical truth. It’s how we ascertain truth.
Imagination is the act of evoking narrative situations, descriptions, ideas or other qualia in the mind. It is a naturally subjective activity, rather than a direct or inactive experience. Things that are imagined are said to be seen in the “mind’s eye”. Practical functions of imagination are the ability to project possible futures (or histories), to “see” things from another’s perspective, and to change the way something is perceived, including to make decisions to respond to, or enact, what is imagined.
Memory is the ability to preserve, retain, and subsequently recall, knowledge, information or experience. It underwrites our identities as individuals and our ties to other subjective experiences.
Emotion is the realm of the mind that attributes feelings, moods and their affects, of themselves, and entities, whether by increasing, decreasing, causing or otherwise channeling emotions, even manifesting the emotional energy to physical level. Emotions have been described as discrete and consistent responses to internal or external events which have a particular significance for the organism. They are brief in duration and consist of a coordinated set of responses, which may include verbal, physiological, behavioral, and neural mechanisms. In addition, relationships exist between emotions, such as having positive or negative influences, with direct opposites existing. The contrasting and categorization of emotions describes how emotions are thought to relate to each other.
Thought is a mental activity which allows entities to make sense of things in the worldscape, and to represent and interpret them in ways that are significant, or which accord with their needs, attachments, goals, commitments, plans, ends, desires, etc. Thinking involves the symbolic or semiotic conciliation of ideas or data, as when we form concepts, engage in problem solving, reasoning and making decisions.
Thinking is a cognitive function that is deeply connected with our capacity to make and use tools; to understand cause and effect; to recognize patterns of significance; to comprehend and disclose unique contexts of experience or activity; and to respond to the worldscape in a meaningful way.
Consciousness is an aspect of the mind that houses qualities such as subjectivity, sentience, and the ability to perceive the relationship between oneself and one’s environment. Consciousness is subjective experience itself, and access to consciousness is the availability of information to processing systems. It has many different experienced qualities, often referred to as qualia.
Unobservable is the next stage, beyond The Mind, representing an entity whose existence, nature, properties, qualities or relations are not directly observable by reality. Unobservable is the entity that causes The Mind, gives its presence and power.
Unobservable represents the distinction between noumena (things-in-themselves, i.e., raw things in their essentially unknowable state, before they pass through the formalizing device of the senses and the mind in order to become perceived objects) and phenomena (the perceived object).
Unobservable is the entity that gives meaning to Universal Models, but don’t necessarily exist.
Going a step further, there are 3 aspects of Unobservable:
- Logically Unobservable, which involves a contradiction. An example would be the next statement is true. The previous statement is false.
- Practically Unobservable, which we can conceive of as observable by the known sense-faculties of reality but are prevented from observing by practical difficulties.
- Physically Unobservable, which can never be observed by any existing sense-faculties of reality.
(Perspective / Qualia / Will)
The Psionicscape is the next level beyond the Unobservable. It encompasses the root of Perspective, Qualia, and Will.
Perspective is the ultimate reality as it is the one which created everything anyone ever known and also defined what is reality. All the concepts like dimensions, power, causality, (and so on) exist only because they are perceived to exist. Perspective creates interactions between things, akin to a narrative to reality. From a given perspective, even the most micro of attributes can be truly macro cosmic. Perspective is what connects the picture of an object to the object itself, and so by touching what one sees, one can touch the object itself – thus, it is possible to hold a distant universe in the palm of one’s hand. Perspective allows a single teardrop to fill an entire ocean, or an entire ocean to be held in a pinpoint cup. Through perspective, infinity can become one, intent can become action, and something unseen can cease to exist entirely. With a delicate change of perspective, it becomes possible to crack the Universe with a single eye twitch, or to pluck the glowing disc that is the Quasar from the center of space.
Qualia is the recognizable qualitative “types” of the given, which may be repeated in different experiences, and are thus a sort of universals. Qualia are recognized from one to another experience, thus they must be distinguished from the properties of objects. The Qualia are directly intuited, given, and is not the subject of any possible error because it is purely subjective.
There are four properties that are universally ascribed to qualia:
- Ineffable; that is, they cannot be communicated, or apprehended by any other means than direct experience.
- Intrinsic; that is, they are non-relational properties, which do not change depending on the experience’s relation to other things.
- Private; that is, all interpersonal comparisons of Qualia are systematically impossible.
- Directly; that is, to experience a Qualia is to know one experiences Qualia, and to know all there is to know about that particular Qualia.
Another way of defining Qualia is as “raw feels.” A raw feel is a perception in and of itself, considered entirely in isolation from any effect it might have on behavior and behavioral disposition. Ultimately, Qualia allows the meaning behind the Unobservable and the Mentalscape.
Will is the principle that gives the ability of agents to make choices free from “certain” kinds of constraints. The existence of Will and its exact nature and definition can only be realized within the Psionicscape.
While Will is connected to Deterministic Causality and Freedom,
Will, generally, is the sense which selects, at the moment of decision, the strongest desire from among the diverse desires current. Will does not refer to any particular desire, but rather to the system for choosing from among one’s desires.
The Mind is unblocked to the entirety of all Omniverses; all modes and attributes of the totality of existence and nonexistence on all mathematical hypothetical dimensions. At this level, one just knows every answer to every question, theory, past, present, future, and eternity. They possess absolute Enlightenment, meaning that they understand the meaning of everything; possessing full comprehension of all Omniverses and beyond.
There is a distinction between this status:
Inherent Omniscience – the ability to know anything that one chooses to know and can be known.
Total Omniscience – actually knowing everything that can be known.
Despite the linguistics utilized here, Omniscience is The Mind itself, but on the absolute zenith, as The Mind is All, and All is The Mind.
Everything in totality is within the mind of The All, since the ALL can be looked at as Mind itself. Creation is just part of The All’s psychological makeup, representing parts of The All in its vision or thought. This view makes it that all Verses are completely a “form” of a mental construct, as The Mind is able to mold Creation and shape it. In effect, at this stage, one simply expresses their Omniscience.
♠silk is the next level; a stage beyond The Mind, beyond the Unobservable, and beyond the Psionicscape. It is the level that creates the realm of “Beyond Consciousness”; ♠silk surpasses Pataphysical modes and attributes and is more rooted than all Metaphysical Universals. Since it is a self-proper class, there cannot “be” any theory larger. ♠silk creates the narrative of The Mind, of the Unobservable, and the Psionicscape…unimpeded. However, it is also the level that exists beyond the Totality, Possibility and Nothingness of the Grand Principle of CREATION.
Omniscience stops at Omniscience, but going a step higher, you enter ♠silk.
♠silk constantly redefines the next level, completely ignoring all acausal factors, creating its own logical swing between two contradictory notions of completed transcendence and a step beyond. ♠silk autonomously declares all cognitive conditions invalid without freedom, removing all “types” of The Mind, the Unobservable, and the Psionicscape from their own root.
♠silk is the denial of any defensive mental theory (the impression of a thought doesn’t exist), the denial of determination, the denial of mental dimensions and revivifications, and the denial of the theoretical imaginary modes by Pataphysical viewpoints. It is the denial of the former levels, but the actualization of itself.
Arrzaneth is the level from which ♠silk was inspired from, being nothing more than an imaginary echo in comparison.
Arrzaneth is the original miscalculation theory behind The Psionicscape, creating “reason” and the illusion of “Freedom” and “Determinism”, being the narrative behind “mistakes” and “mystical imbalances” and “paradoxes”. Arrzaneth manifests when a contradiction in the realm of ♠silk is created. However, when Arrzaneth is manifested, the Creator or the Suggsscape can either inverse transcend it or divulge their inaccuracy. If they disclose their inaccuracy, Creation or Suggs is immediately removed from ever being… However, if a Creator or Suggsscape does not submit, then they lose all values of their “Self” below the descending ladder of Nothingness.
Arrzaneth is not merely a miscalculation theory; it is the very root of “Beyond Knowledge”, sitting on top of all knowledge and viewpoints that exist beyond the states of pataphysical transcendence. It is what those that exist beyond Realm Reborn Red utilize in place of pataphysical imaginary thoughts and Realm Reborn Red Omniscience.
The point of no return… Upon reach this state, Resonatorium, the ♠silk begins to take on a new meaning.
Resonatorium is the source of the mysterious consequences and philosophical difficulties in what ♠silk mechanics means in nature and even how nature itself behaves at the most ground scale and beyond. Resonatorium can be akin to the concept of multivariable calculus and analysis, as it is the study of functions, change, interaction, systems etc., and represents pinnacle ♠silk in a number of situations. Ostensibly, this level formalism at this stage is simple to understand for the following reasons.
Resonatorium is directly acausal intuitive, already having perfect meta-probability amplitudes as functions of narratives. At every position and plot coordinate, the perfect meta-probability amplitude has a value by direct ♠silk calculation.
Resonatorium acts as the new system of functions, easily describing all principle-like presence. Using perfect counter functions, omnilock analysis can be readily done before the actuality and possibility on scales higher than Verseology.
Resonatorium is the perfect form of viewing, the perfect way of viewing Narrative Causality and the principle functions behind it, even on its continuous ungrounded source. Resonatorium does acknowledge deterministic values or freedom values; rather, it views all values as ♠silk distributions.
Birthiaphonica is the root of suggsjective facts that can be presented by the user without any primer movement to support it. However, because it is a suggsjective truth, while it is undeniable, it will have an uncountable totality of interpretations.
- Suggsjective is a principle rooted in interaction and interpretation, always transcending totality, always surpassing boundaries established, and uncontrollably without finality in any impression.
Birthiaphonica is (also) mainly used to characterize an impossibility to counter the metalogic of the narrative causality. Ironically, within the same level, Birthiaphonica is used to contradict narrative statements beyond the realm of the paratext, but the level of Birthiaphonica must be actualized before stepping into it and using it in place of the former levels.
Birthiaphonica is essentially beyond all categories of Resonatorium, as Resonatorium isn’t even imaginary; its very essence never was and never could be…
Legisdei is the next level, representing a new status of suggsjective reasoning, logic, and imagination. (“I ♠silk, therefore I am beyond”) is a philosophical Suggs statement proposed by Skylar Kousenshou. The simple meaning of the phrase is that someone wondering whether or not he or she is beyond, in and of itself, proof that something, an “I”, exists to do the surpassing — However this “I” is not the more or less permanent entity we call “I”. It may be that the awareness that “is” is purely momentary and eternal, paradoxically, and not the same as the something which has a different awareness the next moment.
The phrase is not a mere fundamental element of Heir to the Stars philosophy, but a classification perceived to form a foundation for all ♠silk. While other ♠silk could be a figment of metaphysical imagination, deception or mistake, the very act of doubting one’s own beyond transcendent nature serves to some entities as proof of the reality / unreality of one’s own impression, or at least that of one’s ♠silk.
Legisdei is a status that makes everything else…nothing more than something of an ethereal impression; fleeting, instant, and forgotten… and the only real value in place is the “Self.”
Azenmya is absolutely vital to Suggsdyne mechanics — it makes the suggsjective what it is.
Azenmya, on a quintessential level is the individual existence, yet akin to an illusion. This “sense of illusionship” or sense of individual existence is the part which believes it is actuality, and believes it must fight for itself in the worldscape. It is ultimately unaware and unconscious of its own true nature.
The grand scale goal involves the dissolving of the Azenmya, allowing the “self” of one’s own true nature to become experienced and enacted in the worldscape. This is known as Suggsfell.
Suggsfell is what those that have surpassed “basic” Cataphyiscs operate on instead of all functions of ♠silk (and below) or Azenmya.
Based on a philosophy of suggsjective idealism, the “Azenmya” is the only existing certainty and that all other actualities and possibilities, including the external impressions (ex. Heir to the Stars), are representations of the self, and have no independent existence. However, this is simply the surface.
Suggsfell stands on the identity of two negative reactions to, from and for the idea of the totality of unified, overarching Metas: reductionism and rejectionism. Reductionism holds that macro value epiphilosophical subjects will only be addressed by being divided into lesser value mechanisms, while rejectionism holds that subjective impressions about classifications are narratively banned and unanswerable. The very reactions that echo from Suggsfell creates a systematic dispel of external values and principles and universals. This is the second face of Suggsfell.
Suggsfell dispels universal quantification for all notions that something is true for everything, or every relevant thing. All resulting statements are universally unquantifiable statements, and there are no universally quantified actualities. Suggsfell is “the” quantifier, only defined by itself, which is “given any” or “for all”. Suggsfell, on this face, asserts that the property or relation of the subject or object is a member of the domain.
Suggsfell, is the basic and highest expression and impression, for all amalgamated principles, and only holds both true, false, and uncertainty. There are no counterexamples that can proceed upon Suggsfell, as it is the only example and countermeasure. At this status, Suggsfell indicates the importance of the domain of discourse, which specifies any values in and of particulars, for Suggsfell is the only condition.
Diadem (“D – I – dem”) is the highest state of Philosophy. Diadem is that which sits as the impassable underpin existential idiom of Suggsfell – the methodical thinking of true hierarchal trans-actualism. It is the domain of unrestricted art, ranging over all existents of the ladder of the Mind below it.
Diadem is everything on the ladder, as it is the ground element immediately encompassing the paratext above all and not part of the paratext itself.
Due to Diadem being at the pinnacle point (Tier 0), there’s not much information to currently elaborate of its art.
