On [experiential] Objective Consciousness
I found an applicable knowledge by chance and named it ‘objective consciousness’. I found later that a person by the name of Gurdjieff to have used the same term for the very same notion.. To experiential objective consciousness, time and space cease to exist or to be relevant. Time to experiential objective consciousness is actually simultaneous in nature with no fixed present i.e, everything from every time line is happening in every moment of now. Individuality too is transcended in objective consciousness so that it is possible to transpose one’s consciousness into the consciousness of other living beings i.e., to experience others or group of others as self. We are just different expressions of the same sacred essence. Because objective consciousness transcends space-time, it can be argued that consciousness is more fundamental than matter since all matter occupies space-time, i.e, that matter is as illusory as space-time and individuality. That space-time (hence matter) and individuality are the illusory constructs of subjective minds. By illusory, it doesn’t mean that space-time and the self don’t exist but rather their true nature eludes most people’s perception.

In my personal opinion, my discovery of objective consciousness is directly linked to my past ordeal in Singapore in 2002. I have started glimpsing objective consciousness since around 2004/2005 while I was in my 20s. I didn’t know what it was or how it was possible. Only when I continually had moments of glimpsing that I began to understand. I invented the term ‘objective consciousness’ but found that another person by the name of Gurdjieff to have coined the very same term for the same idea. I’m a Christian by faith.
Furthermore, the idea of objective consciousness (just a term to denote a different kind of consciousness than its ordinary subjective counterpart) is not nonsense. Science has been slow to acknowledge this and it has become much like a religion. When Boltzmann proposed the concept of atom, those within the scientific community bitterly opposed and ridiculed him due to their rationale that atom could not have existed since it could not be seen.
While it is true that we were not born into this world with a manual, most people lost their independence in the experience of living, on becoming and forgot about being. Until we really explore what it means to be a human being, until we really understand the nature of being we will never really be a complete human being we are destined to be. Objective Consciousness can be cultivated through the weakening or outright annihilation of ego. The ego, that personal inner identification we ascribe to ourselves is false and is a hindrance to transpersonal state of being or existence. The annihilation of ego is hence the Jacob’s ladder to God and the result would be an objective being, one who is more acceptable to God, one who is living a transpersonal existence by the realization of one’s true Self.
But with a society ruled by the tyranny of mediocrity, greatness is often mistaken as madness unless of course, that greatness is not really that great then it would be called greatness because it fits the idea of mediocre people. New ideas become accepted not because people change their minds about them but because new generation grew up with their notions. I found a scientific journal one time which was written by a Chinese scholar and he suggested that quantum superposition happened within the consciousness and as one was aware of its own consciousness, this state of superposition collapsed and this was what set off the possibility of attaining a fuller human potential that I term transcendental experience (it’s been a while since I glanced at the journal and I don’t keep a copy so I’m sorry if this is not accurate). Attempts to re-find the journal up via Google were fruitless though.
