Matrix and Finite Consciousness
Written by Mathew Naismith
As of anything I write about, it's advisable not to take it as fact or fiction as there is usually very little black and white mentality involved in my writings/thinking. This means I often bring forth the middle ground, an awareness between black an white perceptions. The matrix to me is the condition of a black and white mentality, this means our conscious awareness has to be limited to one and/or the other, there is no middle ground within the matrix.
So what is this matrix?
Matrix: - (mathematics) a rectangular array of quantities or expressions set out by rows and columns; treated as a single element and manipulated according to rules.
- An enclosure within which something originates or develops.
When we invasion a straight sided border around a human being, we usually get a rectangular shape thus a rectangular array of quantities or expressions is evident. These quantities or expressions are also often treated as singular groups, for example, male or female, young or old, poor or rich, atheist or religious, black or white and so on and so on it goes.
Within this matrix, these rectangular quantities or expressions are limited to these set values, this is due to the fact that once we define ourselves as a singular element, we become easier to manipulate. It's this manipulation that sets values to singular elements.
Elements is interesting here because the word element defines a certain quantum, a quantum that is separated by manipulation, basically, the deliberate action of separating one element from another thus creating singular elements. Have you ever heard of the saying divide and conquer, well the matrix itself is all conducive to actions like this. It's simular to the perception of how time separates one moment from another, within this perception, we create finite consciousness, a consciousness that is usually only aware of everything being separated. This in turn creates a black and white mentality, a mentality that can only perceive in finite consciousness.
To me, the second definition of the word matrix should really go like this," An enclosure within which something originates or develops from. The reason for this is you can't create finite consciousness outside of this enclosure of the matrix, this is due to everything that is outside this enclosure, is of infinite consciousness, it has no limitations. The matrix itself exists primarily due to infinite consciousness, a consciousness that is limited through being divided or separated from everything else. We have limitations because we have a perception of division, everything is treated as a single element either singularly or in groups of singular elements.
The matrix is an enclosure of a consciousness that has limitations due to finite perceptions, meaning, everything has a starting and ending point and is singular to others elements. The matrix is a consciousness of division therefore limitations, however, believe it or not, this consciousness is a natural occurrence, we are existing in a natural consciousness of division. As finite consciousness is natural, so is infinite consciousness, just because one existence of a type of consciousness is divided, doesn't mean it's an unnatural occurrence. It's wise not to divide one consciousness or existence as being natural and the other unnatural, this kind of thinking is of a black and white mentality which is of the matrix itself. We have indeed been conditioned to think through and from divisions/separation.
I actually find the matrix itself quite amazing, what it created within itself, within it's limitations, is extraordinary. If we can create so much within such a limited consciousness, how much would we create in a consciousness that isn't limited? To me, the matrix is an awakening to our unlimited self, a self that is not limited consciously, a consciousness defined and influenced by infinite possibilities.
Within the natural course of the matrix becoming more and more limiting, we are awakening to our unlimited potential, our infinite self that isn't divided. What I am saying is it's natural for a matrix, like this, to develop further into a limiting consciousness for us to awaken to our truer being. We are in actuality becoming less trapped within this rectangle, the matrix itself, the more limiting the matrix becomes. Basically, the more naturally destructive this matrix becomes, the more we become aware of its' destructive potential. In effect, the matrix's own limitations are going to be the end of the matrix's illusions, the illusions that all we are is singular elements and only finite in consciousness. The more a consciousness is limited, the more it naturally becomes destructive.
Freedom will come to those who free themselves from the matrix, all this will take is to really know you are within yourself infinite. How many of us believe that death is the end when all it is, is a transition from one state to another. There is no true starting or ending point, there is no limitations to our potential, only in the matrix itself is this true, we are far more than what the matrix represents.
