Surplusage

About: which is the authentic experience?

A moment of life needs no more than conscious attention & presence.  Once the words come out to clothe the moment then surplusage begins.

and so the first domino falls and to this author the rest of them falling are to be judged as "surplusage".  oh well.
I like the word. No dominos. Just surplusage.

I was noticing in 18013 simply that all consequences of a NOW are significant ... the latter consequences not to be discounted.  It's just me trying to be aware from a dimension orthogonal to the time line.  Subsequent happening is not surplusage to me.

It is your imagination that makes up consequences & sequences.  While you are doing that you are missing that which IS.

it might be interesting to follow the train of thought established by the tags past,present to arrive at your own thought about this ...

Some say that all there is is NOW! They would counsel that the past as we hold it is an illusion of distortions, deletions & generalizations which we produce on our way to groking or making sense of our surroundings & experience - not a perfect recording of NOW by any means. Some say that our future is all a fantasy of expectation - some days a complete surprise! It is certainly not real in the same sense as NOW!  All these are the fun features of TIME - itself an abstract conceptualization layered on changes. 



... or CFR's on it too ...

Exercise of Practice makes Perfect is a lovely motto to keep in mind as we step beyond analogy to Reality. The steps trace a path & themselves leave a spoor.  For example, consider the working out of a formula or algorithm........

The fabric of our lives is woven in time.  Monday's Pininyahang Manok meant the chicken taste in Tuesday's vegetable soup and the pineapple drink on the side.   Who is to parse out the one from the other ... not I.
Collecting & accumulating & arguing & haggling about surplusage doesn't make it taste any better.  It would be better to put this comment on your own 18013.

Ok, i kind of thought that was your point of view. 

Mine is that consequences happen independent of their observation by any particular being.  The sequence of their observation is obviously dependent on the observer and its background mind.   Whether the observation (awareness/consciousness) was perceived, conceived, imagined, or felt is also determined by which one the observer actually did.

... While you are doing that you are missing that which IS.
... well i would think that is not usually missed for it must fall somewhere in the spectrum of what is perceived, conceived, imagined or felt. 

... & munged into the surplusage .

... ... what is munged into what and why is it surplusage to you?  ... and to what does it refer?

Now, Mark, you may be supposing that you have communicated something to me ... but i am telling you honestly that i have no idea what you mean.   Of course, as usual, i am trying not to expect that is just a habitual RWG playing out ... so I have excluded that  interpretation from the possibilities.

Incidentally, i like this "surplusage" word that you found.  It refers to a judgement.  I judge many of my awarenessess as surplusage.   Sometimes, but not usually, i have even posted some of those on my blog.  The particular one in 18013 was a subtle awareness just almost barely beyond my reach.  Strangely enough you have crisped it a bit by your interaction with it ... though not, of course, by you judgement of it.  You will of course fall off its world whenever, i don't even need to point out that possibility. 
Most people including Bozo can't tell the difference between what is rattling around in their head & what's so - the rattling being the story they tell themselves about what is going on. Good luck finding out the difference.
