Speculative Reflection

Always in a process of situating discourses to their occasions, I am Often recognizing discrepancies between what I think and what I come across.

Right there alone is enough to notice that there are two ways of understanding things. These two ways can be said to concern reflection.

Colloquially speaking, we are always talking about reflecting upon ones situation. And this is good; we want to encourage people to displace themselves. To step outside of themselves. Never minding the philosophies which would place us in an essentially relative universe founded only in subjective views and opinions,  an anthropology of philosophy talks about what we are able to do as foundational. Less the contents of our various fantasies and imaginations projected upon a true reality which forever recedes, Indeed consciousness, however we would come to terms with it, apparently is able to hold a conception whereby subjectivity is essential in the manner I just described.

Hence, what I’m saying is that we are able to believe, we are able to be convinced that subjectivity evidences a human containment, and that this containment moves to grant us an extended relativity. We are able to do this. But it is not that merely because the content which is generated from that ability seems so true that it is indeed true (however we would want to deny this truth by placing us selves in a relative situation eternally), no. It is more that the ability can be noticed, That the confines in which we place ourselves to find our subjective identity is indeed merely an ability — Once this contradiction of our immediate experience sets in to confront our apparent knowledge, it is then that we might have an ability to reflect upon the actual truth of our situation, and indeed become available to understand the truth of the universe it’s self. When we can begin to come to terms with how human beings, indeed, how I indeed a rise in consciousness, again regardless of how we define consciousness – for, a default to linguistic definition merely is a retreat from what is true of our ability – then we can begin to encounter actual true objects which exist in the universe as such. And this is regardless of the subject limitation.

The true reflection is thus an absence of subjectivity: it is the presence of what is other as other, of encountering difference as different. For, if we are able to conceive of a subjectivity which encompasses all that we may encounter, then this must be merely an ability rather than an essence, since an essence is at all times merely a conception of arbitrary causation. If this is merely an ability, then we likewise have an ability to understand what it is to get outside of that subjectivity, to leave it alone, to find it in nothingness. We do not have to be bound to a fixed strata of knowledge.

For, is this not with the great philosophies of the past 200 years have asserted? That, on one hand, subjectivity is founded upon nothingness, but due to this nothingness subjectivity is always founded in a knowledge-power Whereby subjectivity is the definition of being-repressed?

If we give up that power, then what do we have? We have nothingness on one hand, which is utter contradiction, utterly an abyss when faced that derives for us the epitome of existential anxiety; but then the other side is even more scary: We Find that what we call perception and subjectivity is indeed a constituent aspect of the universe itself, of indeed objects in themselves. Grass gives us itself. Trees give us information about itself in itself, the actual objectivity of the tree. Planets as well, consciousness as well, books, discourse, atoms, opinions, leaves, air, Krishna, molecules, bacteria, concepts,Gods, God Goddess, spirits, devils, Angels, psycho killers, priests and goblins, witches, magic and scientists.

We find that all of these things arise in themselves, truly existing, in the universe, the constituency of the universe, all this despite our subjective intentions.

This is what reflection is.

Yes, it is in ability of consciousness or subjectivity or individuality or persona or mind to consider its own situation, as well as to consider itself by virtue of that which it considers within its domain of concept, intelligence, and perception.

So it is not by contrast that we are not able to ever come upon anything else. But on the contrary, it is due to this limit that we are able to come across true things of the universe. Things in-themselves. And for themselves. Avoiding any and every encounter with subjectivity.

When this is realized, then we begin to have an ability to form valid and effective relationships. For we are no longer expecting and demanding things to conform with our own ideas of self, psychology, and intention.
