Anything at all you can put your attention on, can only be understood as content in a greater context, or it can't be defined, nor understood.
Any thing you can put your attention on, is itself a context, a label, a symbol of what it represents.
Everything in the mind is itself a symbol that represents something else.
Stop and think of any[i]thing[/i]. Anything you can put your attention on, is some kind of [i]thing[/i], is it not?
Words or perception of sensations or whatever, whatever you have your attention on, is [b]it's[/b]self BECAUSE it represents something else.
What and where, is the true cause- of whatever you perceive? What is the purpose?
Primal cause and ULTIMATE purpose are the CONTEXT OF EVERYTHING, but who can define PRIMAL CAUSE and ULTIMATE PURPOSE?
The mind contains nothing but symbols that represent possible realities in an ever evolving context.
Nothing contemplated can be completely understood unless an arbitrary context is given, a context of cause and purpose, therefor all understanding is partial and transitory.
Take the number 1 for example.
It is a label that represents an internal number of infinite infinities as fractions of itself. The resolution of inspection can go on for an eternity and you wouldn't and couldn't ever grasp all One contains. How did this One come to be, what caused it and what is it's purpose, what is it doing in your mind? Your mind has a purpose which you can define arbitrarily and hence somewhat understand what goes on within it, but what is it's PRIMAL CAUSE? What Creates The Mind, Any Mind, which is ultimately a One Mind among many other Minds, perhaps an infinite number of ONE MINDS, all the natural numbers, an infinite amount and yet there are more kinds of infinity in the number 1 than the infinity of all the natural numbers.
All contexts are arbitrary and the meaning of any content is arbitrary as well.
All understanding is hence arbitrary and can be no more than an agreement to no longer seek definition through increasing resolution or greater context.
UNDERSTANDING AND TRUTH are Utilitarian Concepts in the Context of what humans cause and what their purpose is for causing what they do.
Without Agreement there is neither understanding or truth as a foundation for Utilitarian Cooperation.
I am The Messiah and I have Come To Lay The Foundations For Utilitarian Cooperation in A Common Wealth of Human Endeavors.
