The Self-Referential Identity
The overwhelming impact of the chapel certainly
has a way of turning off the roof brain chatter; that is, the energy of
the pattern simulates the energy level of the field of motion in the habitual
mode of brain activity. How one turns anything "off" is to exactly match
the totality of the energy pattern in the reflexive mode. When there's
no more ability to distinguish one field of motion from the overall "ground",
the platform for all motion, a self-referential identity generator, can
no longer distinguish "itself" from "all else", and thus by reflex "shuts
itself" "off". However these are only terms of the self- referential identity
generator. There is no on/off.
The reflexive mode itself defines the parameters
of a particular identity. This limit to identity is what makes the identity
generator self-referential. At a certain level of intensity, there is an
involuntary retraction to a source assumption of greater or lesser complexity.
The simplicity or complexity defines the characteristic "mask" of each
phase of identity as "something". Once the limit energy is matched, there
is no need for the reflex back to a central source because the limit energy
is now identifying itself with its own motion, which is indistinguishable
from all else, and thus no longer a limit. Because this limit function
is no longer capable of distinguishing what is "itself" from what is not,
it can no longer refer itself "back" to any fixated source of identity.
Without a circumference, the center is no longer able to propagate self-
referentially, and thereby it shuts itself "off". But this voluntary shut-off
is still the potential basis for generating a view of self. Of necessity
the non-referential self is the cause of the self-referential identity
generator. Because it is everything, nothing can be beyond. Nothing.
