Awareness means changing the reality around you.
We need only watch nature to see ourselves.
The Thread of Awareness is a pattern of behavior, like a fractal seed, unwinding within the matrix of a four-phase concept. It is the process of becoming and looked at from your own viewpoint, it goes like this;
1. Elements and energies flow into you from the surrounding world. Think of air drawing into your lungs from the atmosphere, food and water flowing into your focus from the world around you, sunlight entering your eyes.
2. You change the direction and associations of the atoms and the energy around you, diverting them from their previous trajectories and associations into becoming you. Feel the oxygen from the air, the food and water entering your system and then your cells, weaving into your form, energizing you. Feel light impacting your eyes to create your vision of the world.
3. You then release atoms and energies in new ways, new directions, moving away from your focus. You then select pathways into the future and actively respond to continue breathing, gain more food and water, rid your body of wastes, and extend your existence within this magic sea.
4. That which is released from you, your words, your movements, your wastes, flows away from you, moving outward into the world and creating changes around you. The changes you create has an impact on what happens to you next. The difference between what happens as a result of your behavior and what you expected to happen is awareness. Your behavior creates a response from within yourself and from the world around you. You observe your own system and the world outside of yourself to detect if you are doing the right things to accomplish your goal and then the process begins again and you modify your behavior, if necessary, in the next cycle.
This pattern of behavior, the four phases of the torus, are divided into a flowing in, a change within your focus can a flowing out and a change in the surrounding world. And, most importantly, the creation of awareness by the degree of surprise.
This is easier to experience than explain. Virtually all living beings and all living processes manage to go through this same cycle. It is the essence of life. It sounds complex when put into the English language but even a bacterium does it.
