Philosophy, Psychology, Stuart France

Consciousness…

*

The seen-world is taken for granted

in much the same way as our consciousness itself,

which seems to us omniscient, omnipresent

and, to all intents and purposes, omnipotent.

*

We may doubt our memory, thought and feeling,

but our consciousness can never be so called in to question.

*

Strangely enough, neither could our consciousness

ever be credited with causal powers.

*

The polar nature of the seen-world,

to take but a single example,

should never be laid at the door of our consciousness.

*

Polarity is, on the contrary, inherent in

the things of the seen-world

and the possibility that the one

may be the product of the other

should not trouble… our consciousness!
