Religions have emerged from a relative recent history. Coming into existence after hundreds of thousands of years of humanoids wandering the earth, trying to understand this sense of being that is inside and outside appearances.
Religions have turned this sense into god and gods.
Preligion much like Joseph Campbell’s studies of comparative mythologies, and Jung’s ideas of archetypes understands these myths and belief systems to be ways of coming to terms with the mind.
Preligion as such, is the belief that what is consider by religions to be god or gods, is rather the mind existing in a higher or Xdimension.
* A dimension inside and outside the 3rd/4th space-time dimension.
In this way preligion relates not to the spiritual but to the immaterial nature of being. (spirit in this context is defined as the mind)
This idea comes from the mathematical formulation of the hypercube (4dimensional space) and is based on the logical deduction that to ‘perceive’ the dimensions of space 0, 1, 2 or 3 you must be in a higher dimension to the one that is perceived:
-The mind at 0 dimension can not perceive itself — void.
-The mind at the 1st dimension — from one point can only perceive the other point = the appearance of 0dimension (point)
-The mind at the 2nd dimension — from one point can only perceive two points = the appearance of 1dimension (line)
-The mind at the 3rd dimension — from one can point only perceive 3 points = the appearance of 2dimensions(shape)
-The mind at X dimension — from one point can only perceive 4 points = the appearance of 3dimensions(tetrahedron)
As we can clearly perceive 3dimensions — the conclusion is inevitable that our minds must in the higher dimension.
If we were to put 3 dimensions as the appearance of the object – X dimension could be considered as inside and outside the appearance of the object.
Which gives each entity its subjective reality.
How would it look if our minds were not in the Xdimension but rather only in the 3rd dimension?
Firstly it would mean that there would not be the processing capacity to understand the objects in 3 dimensions because our perception would only perceive planes and not forms.
Rather than perceiving a static form, one would think they are seeing the shape changing as they move— with perhaps the sense of an object.
Much like someone who’s mind is only in two dimensions every shape could only be perceived as a continuous line — as there is nothing in you to say it is a shape. — Meaning no comprehensive capacity of mind.
This further implies that the freedom of movement is different to the perception. A flatlander can move 2dimensionally but can only perceive 1dimension. A roundlander can move 3 dimensionally, but can only perceive 2dimensions.
Following this logic, what evidence would there be that travel in a higher dimension is possible?
Could non-locality in quantum mechanics point to this or out-of-body experiences?
One could further argue that we are not in this case our brains but our minds. Meaning that because the body is 3 dimensionally it can only move in 3 dimensions, however if our minds exists Xdimensionally it can travel in Xdimensions.
Following this logic, we comprehend an object because our minds are in a space that is also outside object-ness — which gives us comprehension of the object.
The mind in that way is the supernatural phenomena, because the mind is always in a higher dimension to what ‘appears’ natural.
The mind as god, means that everyone’s mind is their own god — and the potential supernatural power acting upon themselves.
**It is necessary to say potential, because the potential of the mind is infinite , but the release of its powers are limited to the individual oneness — at present time.
A preligion has therefore only the morality of respect for all minds — as equal to each mind. Which does not mean that all the potential of minds are equally expressed. With this morality the requirement of consent between each interaction of minds is paramount.
This follows the idea of relative morality: where ‘wrong’ is violating the rights of others.
The mind as god is the I AM of the individual.
This could become an ego statement when one feel themselves as some sort of absolute being , failing to see themselves as a relative being.
If the mind be our god in the Preligion of The Agprognostic Temple: does that mean we worship the mind ?
It is clear that the mind is manifested through the workings of the body and through the extensions of the body. As such there is no us and the mind for without the body of a sort there is nothing to mind.
Worship of the mind is only significant as self-reverence and most importantly for the purpose of giving the individual’s its full autonomous power.
