Wheels Within Wheels
In the examination of the anomalous experiential realities over a wide spectrum of the forms they take, specifically and yet generically categorized as Jinn phenomenon as outlined between the 11th and 12th Centuries...the information held in the environment when entangled with the observer \ experiencer seems to suggest a possible triangulation of several factors, rather than one that creates these transient and out of context images and what is communicated.
Another is memory and the individuated associations that are stored as a database that are superimposed on location by the observer as a reciprocal process. However, going deeper from whence these associative images arise, they appear to be subconscious in nature. Then going even deeper into these entangled relationships, we find anticipations based on subconscious processes. What appears to bring them together are the instincts of emotions as directed toward uncertainty. However, we can find example after example of these same processes in normative psychology where all the above takes place in interpreting everyday life and yet these subconscious processes are steered by the consensus within social scripting by way of imprinting, rote repetition and so forth that categorize them as an autonomic process more often than not which precedes their consideration as viable.
In other words language as applied as a means of communication could be said to suggest...and modality precedes communication. An example of this in everyday life we are all familiar with are the words Republican and Democrat that suggest architectures, anticipations, aims and associations, however, beyond this self suggesting process, in a deeper sense, neither one exists outside of language as a steering mechanism that overrides self awareness.
In effect, this predetermination factor is a medium of mass hypnosis. One could say that there is an equivalency in the field which proposes to study the paranormal via mass mediums.
“In order to awaken, first of all one must realize that one is in a state of sleep. And in order to realize that one is indeed in a state of sleep, one must recognize and fully understand the nature of the forces which operate to keep one in the state of sleep, or hypnosis. It is absurd to think that this can be done by seeking information from the very source which induces the hypnosis..."
If we say this is true as being present prior to an anomalous experience, perhaps this angle has been overlooked as we are conscious, or how we define consciousness requires us to go even deeper into the nature of thought which by its constitution is ruled by language and language in of itself in relation to thought is always incomplete and relies on imagination to fill in the gaps
“You're doubtless well aware that most of the great hypnotic patients wind up referring to themselves in the third person, like little children. They see themselves from outside their own organisms, outside their own sensory systems. In order to get further outside themselves, and help them escape their physical personality, some of them, once in the state of clairvoyance, have the curious custom of re-baptizing themselves. The dream name comes to them, no one knows whence, and by this they INSIST on being called as long as their luminous sleep endures – to the point of refusing to answer to any other name.”
― Villiers de L'Isle-Adam, Tomorrow's Eve
This has always been a subject in centuries past of much speculation across the board regardless of how it is expressed in metaphysics and it’s various schools.
One hypothesis from the distant past suggests that this semi-hypnotic state of consciousness is by design in relation to self awareness by adaptation. What this means is that as human beings became increasingly self aware, there was a problem that along with this self awareness being “distracted” there would be some negative behavioral effects...if it were not “distracted” in a semi-hypnotic state, chaos would ensue..and there would be no architecture in place for self organisational purposes. In other words, a false scrim was placed over self awareness to redirect what could be considered to be chaotic. Another avenue of exploration as it is related to evolution is the perpetuation of the species itself.
“The erotic state – again, a mixture of concentration and spontaneity – is a hypnoidal state, probably the most powerful kind that we are capable of experiencing, and it is in this condition that unexpected regions of the self are revealed, as the majority of people know from experience.”

You could say that by writing this I am suggesting to myself and consequently suggesting a scenario to you. Consequently as well , you then suggest to yourself. When alone, we continually suggest to ourselves by entangled language. At the time of the further development of language and maths and language is a form of math, some critics lamented that humankind lost their capability to utilize their memory as their memory was steered. This state of suggestion is unavoidable and yet one could safely say there are two aspects of it that relate to anomalous experiences which is the degree to which one is self aware by observation in these processes within oneself, there is a degree of limited mitigation and the degree to which this is achieved or not achieved may have a bearing on what is experienced as well as the consideration of an impossibility ..What if this factor were removed, and what impact would that have on anomalies? One examines the involuntary manner in which these anomalies occur as unstructured by means of a direct and conscious associative process and then by means of extension of this state as an examination what if we considered this biological and psychological state to be absent in the evolution of awareness in exobiology...and should a creature from this alternative evolution find themselves among us and observed this state...in us as behaviorism's, would would such a reaction be constituted by as either no transcription being available, or could a manipulation to express common concepts by insertion of suggestions allow the exchange of information?
If we take for the sake of creating a proposition that this wakeful state is more hypnagogic than self aware, we now take in the original observations as related in the beginning regarding the triangulation from whence anomalous experiences derive from several factors, and what do we discover, if anything?
Rather than focus on what throws the ball or triggers the phenomenon, perhaps it is more pragmatic to consider the origins of effects rather than the root of disambiguation that creates innovations of contexts within experience that bear no relation to those relationships that are fixed whether it is in physicality or image or both.
In other words as Robert Anton Wilson said there is no “is-ness” to anything except in the province of the mind as John C Lilly observed.
The restructuring of this realm as at the heart of the anomalous experience, a realm of suggestions that are the drivers contained in language. Can we self verify this state of mass hypnosis by observation?
I leave that for your consideration should it interest you.
In the next post , my aim is to explore what is termed “hypnosis.”
