The Pathology of Reason outlines the mind's identity-of-self as an efficient hierarchy framework. Thru the mind's formulation of time, the ultimate teleological abstraction, a tale so powerfully subtle intertwines itself within the early formations of mental, emotional and behavioral constructs. These resultant Mechanisms of Mind, whether derived thru trauma, pattern, habit or conditioning, are inherently limited and flawed as foundations of rationality as they merely mask the discordant trigger within the unconscious realms of the mind from which they are derived.
Life hosts an elephant in the room so big that we've turned something that is both the penultimate spiritual experience - and the only resoundingly absolute experience - into the subtext of life's unease and neurosis. The psychological dilemma itself is death, which can only exist in the mind as an abstraction attempting to amend the absolute.
To the Mind, both anticipating and avoiding this dilemma can itself become the enantiodromia or catalyst of your release from it.
However, in many instances it instead lends itself to the formation of myriad mental, emotional and behavioral constructs and defense mechanisms, Mechanisms of Mind. These, whether derived thru trauma, pattern, habit or conditioning become inherently imbedded within our foundations of rationality, that, as mere masks of the unconscious - rendering our identity - they habituate themselves into what we perceive thru our experience as rational.
That is unless you can remain present and aware of this process being a sort of efficiency of mind. This process values conceptual time over the Now, as the Now is beyond Mind-identification and comprehension by Mind, as you always need time to process life but not in order to live it.
Living at this level of awareness is consciousness. It's not an answer, nor is it an acquiring of a thing or state. It is simply living thru direct awareness; the Wholeness Principle.
This book is a call to understanding and expanding the circumference of knowledge that is human consciousness.
