Due to the ideas presented in this book, I have had to use various terms and words that are not found in dictionaries: beginning with the title. The word: ‘Splitness’ is used to describe two complimentary, simultaneous conditions: Connection, and Separation. This book explores the logical extrapolation of this, and other Dynamics. My challenge to the reader is simple. Is this book true, or not?
The Path of Splitness Preface The Basic Elements of Human Understanding are: Experience Comparison Evaluation Perspective Putting these elements together creates a larger context of awareness which result in a better understanding. For instance: what can you understand about an orange by looking at it through a microscope? The answer is; very little. But if you plant an orange seed and wonder about it. If you care for the seedling, and study its growth closely and wonder about it. If you watch it grow into a tree and wonder about it. If you live by it, and sit under its shade and wonder about it. If you listen to the wind soughing through its branches and enjoy its beauty and wonder about it. If you pick its fruit, eat it and wonder about it. If you explore the incredible range of uses we have found for its oil, its rind, and its pulp: in medicine, cooking, woodwork, and nutrition and wonder about it… The wider the context of your experiences, the more comparisons you can make between different experiences, the better you can evaluate them, the better your perspective, the better your understanding is of anything… not just an orange. Then you have a wide range of experiences which you can evaluate, compare, and put into perspective. Then you have a wider context of experience to put your understanding into. What is the Sense of Wonder? The Sense of Wonder blends all the Basic Elements of Understanding together. Without the Sense of Wonder: we could never gain a better, more cohesive understanding about anything. The Sense of Wonder is an expansion or contraction of awareness. Any expanding or contracting awareness creates a Sense of Wonder. When you wonder about your inner self, your inner awareness contracts or expands. When you wonder about things that are outside you, your outer awareness expands or contracts. It is your mind breathing… taking everything in, absorbing it, digesting it, understanding it, and then radiating everything it understands out, or in.
The Path of Splitness The Sense of Pure Wonder is a continual sense of awareness which is curious about everything, and never stops being curious. It uses all of the cognitive skills of your mind; continually asking questions, continually figuring things out, continually wondering about things, continually looking at things in new ways, continually experiencing new things, continually comparing things to each other, continually gaining a better perspective on the larger context, continually understanding things better. It is a state of mind that is in a constant, continual unending state of Learning. Experience A Sense of Pure Wonder + Comparison Evaluation Perspective
= Expanded Awareness
Expanded Awareness+ Learning = Better Understanding
