From one fragmentary mode to the next…

Many minds depend upon experiences in order to exist… without fully realizing that they are those experiences.  Reacting to (and “as”) experiences involves  conditioned responses following each other, in sequence.  Without such experiences most minds would be lost, for their very composition desperately depends upon such experiences.  Even ancient organisms, such as the mighty Tyrannosaurus rex, had brains that exclusively depended upon experiences.  However, a few very intelligent minds — very few — though being highly appreciative of many experiences, have realized that they need not just exclusively depend upon experience.  Such minds, though they often use and appreciate experience, go beyond it at times.  Such minds are a light to themselves, and they do not exclusively depend upon things… not even upon experience.  To be beyond dependence is to be truly free; the other way is primitive, limited, partial, and without majestic vastness.

My Blog primarily consists of close-up nature photos (that I've taken locally) combined with original mindfulness sayings and/or poetry that deals with mindfulness/awareness. I love nature and I love understanding the whole (not merely the parts and the details). I'm a retired teacher of the multiply handicapped. I have a number of interesting hobbies, such as fossil collecting, sport-kite flying, 3D and 2D close-up photography, holography, and pets. Most of all, I am into holistic self-awareness, spontaneous insight, unconventional observation/direct perception, mindfulness, meditation, world peace, non-fragmentation, population control, vegetarianism, and green energy. To follow my unique Blog of "Nature Photos and Mindfulness Sayings" and for RSS feeds to my new posts, please access at: tom8pie.com (On my regular Blog posting pages, for additional information and to follow, simply click on the "tack icon" at the upper right corner... or, on my profile page, you can click on the "Thomas Peace" icon.) Stay mindful, understanding, and caring!...
