“With what little of your writing on your website that I have yet read, I was struck by how ‘general’ it is. I can understand most of it myself, but it is so general, and uses so few connections to specifics of any kind, that I think most people would find it completely uninteresting even if they ‘understood it. It’s like a vast featureless haze to most people, because they have to provide the specific connections themselves.”
I am making this into a Newslog because although members of New Civilisation Network also appear to find my work uninteresting it is essentially of the greatest interest to all.
You may recall that central to my work is the claim that in effect we have two minds, the workaday conscious which is not capable of truth and the postconscious whose function is truth.
The human race has its being in the conscious sphere, to whose thinking and action it relates and which (I take it) contains the variously interesting specifics that you refer to. They relate to these specifics but my writing doesn’t, which is why they find it uninteresting. My writing relates to the postconscious mind and its unvaryingly true conclusions that are fascinating to those in the minority who are open to their postconscious minds but that make little connection in the conscious.
The troubles of the world derive from that very fact that we live in the conscious sphere and pursue the competitive drives of instinct, and I have gradually come to realise the same conclusion that you have reached – that my book will not have dramatic effect, yet, because the majority will not read it, not until their world situation becomes bad enough that they are desperate for the truth.
