Noticing the consciousness of the human in the mirror is identical to the consciousness of others in time and space

Post by Eckhart Aurelius Hughes »

This is a discussion forum topic for the November 2022 Philosophy Book of the Month, In It Together: The Beautiful Struggle Uniting Us All.


There is a deeper realer reality uniting all things. It's the undeniably real singular foundation upon which all rests.

We find it by exploring our undeniable real consciousness, the real true self uniting all our various different-looking and different-aged meatsuits scattered throughout spacetime.

It is not merely a matter of noticing the undeniable reality of our our consciousness, our true self, and how it is more specially and fundamentally real than any mere thing. But rather it is also a matter of noticing the way this fundamentally real consciousness corresponding to the human we see in the mirror at any given time or place is identical to the consciousnesses of others in time (e.g. different-aged versions of the human in the mirror) or others in space (e.g. that one-aged one-placed human's neighbors across the street).

The shared consciousness is--ipso facto--precisely what makes two different-aged and/or two different spatially placed humans both share a true identity.

My entire political philosophy summed up in one tweet.

"The mind is a wonderful servant but a terrible master."

I believe spiritual freedom (a.k.a. self-discipline) manifests as bravery, confidence, grace, honesty, love, and inner peace.

Quite true. Human beings talk about so many inter species differences while being a single specie. None of other animal groups possess such differences. What has actually happened is we being misinterpreting the outer appearances as our true selves while always being identical within. And that truth is quite hard to see and much harder for many of us to accept.

The uniqueness of identity might be perceived differently by many. Consciousness is an existential part of human nature. I do believe that our bodies and minds operate at different frequencies: each reflecting on the experience of the other. The fact that we share consciousness as humans correlates to the potentiality of navigating the unseen, thus creating reality.

If only humans understand the uniqueness of their collective consciousness notwithstanding the variability in space, time and age.
Awareness of internal and external existence should not connote segregation, but a deeper understanding of our oneness.

The concept that one's consciousness reflected in the mirror is akin to the consciousness shared by others across time and space suggests a fundamental unity of human experience. It implies a shared essence transcending individuality, fostering a sense of interconnectedness and empathy among people throughout history and across the globe.

This interconnectedness fosters a sense of unity and shared identity, suggesting that despite temporal or spatial disparities, there exists a fundamental commonality in their perception, values, or essence. This shared understanding becomes a unifying thread, intertwining the lives of individuals and shaping a cohesive sense of identity that transcends mere chronological or geographic distinctions.

In the realm of consciousness studies, researchers and philosophers explore the intricacies of how individuals perceive their own consciousness and relate to others. Discussions on empathy, mirror neurons, and shared emotional experiences contribute to the exploration of the interconnected nature of human consciousness.
