It however strikes me that the question – who is reading the code – has never been stated, whereas this would be a logical question!Also a book is read by somebody.It are not my eyes or my brains who are doing this job but it is me!!Therefore there must be a second inhabitant of the body (apart from our me or soul).The Russian philosopher Constantin Karmanov has given it a name ‘coordinating subject’.So this subject is reading our DNA and working with it.Thanks to this subject we can further move our hand because we ourselves do not know which part of the brain must be activated and many other activities.SubjectismTherefore it is necessary that you get to know about the philosophy of the subjectism.According to this philosophy each living being has 2 inhabitants i.e.1. the I2. the coordinating subject.The IWe mean the characterThe coordinating subjectThe subject is:1. invisible2. Immaterial3. infinitely bigThese qualities are also valid for the I.If we cooperate consciously with the subject both parties do have benefit.The subject (I mean the cooperating subject) is e.g. reading our DNA and makes us able to move our hand.We do not know where the location in the brains is to start this action.Cooperation between the I and the subjectPerspectiveThe subjectism is offering the following perspectives:The more intensive the I is listening to the subject the more profit there will be for both.We hear vague or less vague (sometimes very hard) a voice warning us for a special situation and other things.If we neglect this feeling (signal) this might have bad consequences.If we listen well and act accordingly we go well.In as far one can say this is imagination I do not know exactly but as soon as one has heard of the subject the idea starts to live an own life.One can think to have real contact with the subject.Probably one becomes more sensitive for its pulses.May be it is possible that in the future one can become one with the subject. This will have a favourable influence on the consciousness or in other words this will be extended resp. changed. Many actual restrictions will probably escape.For a restricted number of commanding possibilities one might call the subject his slave, but I would emphasize the word restricted.Up to now we have overlooked our companion the subject.The reason is that the subject is invisible. On the other hand we do ‘see’ ourselves whereas we are also invisible.Now you have made acquaintance with your subject.It can be that you now look at life in another way.We know that we have not any power without the subject; on the other hand it is not necessary for us to get a sense of inferiority because reverse it is also the case, although in a lesser way.The crucial question is whether it isComments are closed.
