It needs to be said that each and every attribute, or mentioned (com) is by no means so cut and dry. Just like the infinite number of varying colours, hues, shades in a colour that exist, so too, these variations exist for each and every (com). Thus, Sound, Odour, Emotion, have an infinite ‘number’ of variations and these can and do interact with each other.
Take Sound (Sn).
One song can be heard by the same Observer (Ob) and, yet, he will ‘feel’ it differently when we see that the context has changed.
1. (Ob) in Time Frame 1 (TF1) hears a song (Event = Ev) and is in a neutral mood and so there are no emotions here, or (Ev1) ,
2. (Ob) in (TF2) hears (Ev) again and this time (Ob) is in a happy mood, and so tends to hear the song (Ev) with more enthusiasm, (Ev2).
Thus, the ‘reality’ of the song has certainly not changed for (Ob) because the context has changed. The song itself hasn’t changed, but the mind’s reading of the song has.
These feelings, perceptions of the constituents of the mind (com) are so infinite in number that it becomes highly complicated a matter to attempt to ‘define’ them in any coherent manner.
In our above examples, I have used very simple situations that do not at all get us to what we are seeking here: the ‘nature of reality’.
The fact is every time Observer (Ob) will listen to this particular song (Ev) he will get a varying response from his mind because of the infinite number of variations in the context of his surroundings and in the changing context within his own mind.
Next, let us say, that (Ob) does get the exact same response when he hears (Ev). The next question is this: ‘what’ exactly is (Ob) feeling when he hears (Ev)? Let us say he feels overjoyed when he hears the song in question. This particular feeling of being overjoyed cannot be defined in a cut and dry manner. Why? Because every one of the (com) are just like the constituents of vision: they are an infinite number of imperceptible, undefinable, imprecise entities that only, as a whole, do add up to a meaningful sensation or image that is wholly functional in relation to the observer in question.
It is the summation of the voids that create the final product that affects the mind.
Reality is the sum total, collection of the voids of the constituents of vision that ultimately create the final end result that, in turn, affects, the mind in the functional sense.
This, however, is, in turn, affected by the awareness factor that makes one more aware of the (com) when one has a greater degree of awareness, as opposed to a lesser degree of awareness.
So, as a starter, we can say, for example, feelings (Em) can be either positive (‘+’), negative (‘-‘) or neutral (‘o’). Next, we add, that within these three categories, there exist an unlimited number of variations of the ‘+’, and for the ‘-‘, and for the ‘o’. Next, we add that these infinite number of variations of the textures, flavour of the ‘+’, ‘-‘ and ‘o’, interact with the other (com) constituents of the mind and are therefore affected by them, and that interaction in turn, may alter the texture, flavour of the emotions in question. Finally, we add the Awareness Factor component and that means the Observer will be conscious, being affected by certain of the (com) if his awareness factor increases, and less affected by others if his awareness factor declines, within any time frame.
This inter-mixing collection of factors ultimately creates an affecting, functional ‘reality’ that in turn defines our sense of ‘reality’ for an observer - during a particular time frame only.
