Friends:Reality is Moments of Mentality & Materiality!Nama-Rupa = Name-and-Form, Naming-and-Forming!
The mind is that, which knows the object! The object is that, which is known!
These two processes always arise and cease together simultaneously...
Neither inside, within, nor apart from, outside these two is any observer agent,
person, I, Me, or other assumed entity as a hidden variable, ever involved!
The mind is immaterial, formless and invisible. The object may be designated
or named 'material', 'physical', 'formed' and even 'visible' only and exactly
to the extent and in so far as it is experienceable by the mind!
No same, constant, lasting 'real', 'actual' or 'substantial substance' has ever
existed 'out there' independently or separable from the mind, that right then
momentarily perceived and thereby apprehended, displayed, manifested and
designated it! This core dual pair of mentality (nama)
and materiality (rupa)
is thus one united yet dual continuum, like the two ends of the same stick!
They do never emerge, nor do they ever exist, nor can they ever be observed
separately, in and of themselves, but they can only arise in mutual dependence,
like two thin creepers can only arise & stand up if intertwined with each other.
Mentality & materiality thus arise and cease simultaneously in each moment!
They are thus the most basic, fundamental and primary pair on the bottom of
the dynamic ever-changing process of any being in any existence...
What is called 'matter' is delimited, defined, characterized, conceptualized,
compartmentalized and even named by mind! Therefore can matter never be
separated from mind, like if one tries to break the dual-ended stick in order
to separate the ends, then one always gets two sticks, still each with 2 ends!
Therefore one unambiguously always ends up with observing a pair-wise new
event of mentality & materiality! The basic founding, yet often unnoticed,
unspoken and maybe even sometimes actively denied assumption underlying
all Western science that: The naked, inert, objective observation is possible!
'Matter can be observed and analyzed objectively, independently of mind!'
is therefore utterly false, futile and even somewhat childish... No observation
can ever be independent of mind! Why not? What is observing IS the mind!
The naive physicist who postulates: 'Independently of Mind, "I!" will observe,
describe and evaluate matter!' extending out of his range of understanding,
thus speaks folly false and is thereby later ultimately enforced to introduce
'mysti-phystical' entities as 'hidden variables' into his explanations, in order
to reach completeness, coherence and internal consistence...
He seems to be in complete oblivion of the dry fact, that even before one even
thinks of, even speaks of, or experiment with any 'matter', mind have indeed
been long and hard at work! The basic hidden, yet always present, factor in
any observation, is naturally mind itself!
However, this factor is not so hidden, that it cannot be observed & analyzed
and that even without any laboratory or even a single 'instrument' apart from
a pillow to sit on!
Everyone, without even a single exception, who sits down with closed eyes, will
instantly be overwhelmed by a veritable storm of mentally created distractions:
This is the Mind! This is mental activity knocking your door... Undeniably real!
When this dynamic self-sustaining duality of mentality-materiality, this self-
sustaining perpetum mobile, cease to evolve, consciousness thereby ceases to
establish itself on an object! This - only this, in and of itself - is the very final
End of all Suffering...
