13. The Pairs of Opposites

That one’s a triple whammy!  Three thirteens!  We still haven’t seen the one on February9, 2009.  That one’s a triple whammy as well.


PKD’s Exegesis (Cont.)

“37. We should be able to hear this information, or rather narrative, as a neutral voice inside us.  But something has gone wrong.  All creation is a language and nothing but a language, which for some inexplicable reason we can’t read outside and can’t hear inside.  So I say, we have become idiots.  Something has happened to our intelligence.  My reasoning is this: arrangement of parts of the Brain is a language.  We are parts of the Brain; therefore we are language.  Why, then, do we not know this?  We do not even know what we are, let alone what the outer reality is of which we are parts.  The origin of the word ‘idiot’ is the word ‘private.’  Each of us has become private, and no longer shares the common thought of the Brain, except at a subliminal level.  Thus our real life and purpose are conducted below our threshold of consciousness.”

These are the two in one and the one in two.

And these are not the two in one and not the one in two.

These are the pairs of opposites.

And these are not the pairs of opposites.

Beyond the alienated ego’s stubbornly-held assumptions and opinions- its illusions- there is no opposition- it is not me vs. you, but me & you- there is only complimentary relationship, interdependence, only wholeness, partnership, balance and unity.  Each side needs the other to exist- mutuality and reciprocity.  You can’t have one without the other.  You can’t have male without female.  You can’t have me without you.  The two need each other; Earth needs us and we need Earth.  Father needs Mother and Mother needs Father.  This is interdependence.  This is interconnectedness.  Yet, this is not interdependence and this is not interconnectedness.

The Unity of the Two creates the Three, which is the Venn Diagram, the Triple Goddess, the Holy Trinity.  But remember that it is also none of these.

The ego that is plugged in to Source/God- and hence serving its proper function as intermediary of the inner and outer worlds- has fluid boundaries, sees how inner & outer- the Two- flow into each other, meet in the middle and eventually become indistinguishable from each other.  The plugged-in- or tuned in- ego is healthy, while the ego that is not plugged-in is sick, or, to use the psycho-diagnostic term, neurotic.  One is whole and one is partial, one is soul-infused, happy and full of seemingly endless vitality while the other is depressed and listless.  One is helpful to others and one is harmful.  One is creative and one is destructive.  One is victimized by the pairs of opposites and the other is uplifted by them.  Yet here we find another pair of opposites, don’t we?  The healthy ego and the sick ego.  They are like all ‘opposites;’ they are complimentary- they meet in the middle and become the one in the two.  They are the two in one and the one in two while simultaneously they are not the two in one and the one in two.

As the symbol of the Tao, the Full Circle, illustrates, the Two are One and the One is Two, yet the Two are not One and the One is not Two.

Yin is the Black with a White Eye- The Feminine Principle.  Yang is White with a Black Eye- The Masculine Principle.

Each is within the other- yin is in yang and yang is in yin (the small white circle, or fish’s eye, in the black segment and vice versa.)

It is the fullness of being that counts.

It is the total picture that matters.

I no longer take sides.

I empty myself and seek the whole picture.

I seek the Truth, which is beyond truth and falsehood, yet is all truth and all falsehood.

I am no longer merely I.

I am no longer merely you.

I am the I in you and the you in I.

But I am also not the I in you and the you in I.

I am the two in one and the one in two.

Yet I am also not the two in one and the one in two.

I am the three in one and the one in three.

But I am also not the three in one and one in three.

I am the Whole.

I am not the Whole.

I am the Tao.

I am not the Tao.

Follow me.

But do not follow me.

Heal the split.

Build your bridge.

The Middle Path is the Way.

Listen to me.

But do not listen to me.

For I am still a fragment

Even as I am the whole.

And though I know the Way I still do not know the Way.
