The Unique Potential of Man Is the Progress of self-Understanding and self-Transcendence

Abstract (and right conceptual) "thinking" (In The Context Of Profound, and, More and More, thought-Transcending, "Consideration") and "technology" (Displayed As The Total Form Of Right and Effective Practice) Are (As Such) Useful Means For Directing The Progressively ego-Transcending Process That Is The Unique Potential Of Man. However, When egoity (or self-Fulfillment), Rather Than self-Transcendence, Becomes The Motivator Of Man, conceptual thinking and technological inventiveness Tend To Become Exalted (or Valued) As Ends In themselves—Such That they Become The Chronic, Compulsive, and Obsessive Preoccupations Of Man.

The non-human beings function Largely From The Base Of What Is Commonly Called “The Unconscious”. That Is To Say, Compared To Man, they Apparently Operate With Much Less Of (or, At Least In some cases, Even Without Much Of) What Are Commonly Called The “Conscious” and “Subconscious” Structures Of mind. Human beings Are Actively Bringing The Unconscious—In Its Totality, Including (Potentially) Its Superconscious Heights and (Most Ultimately, In The Only-By-Me Revealed and Given Seventh Stage Of Life) Its Inherent (and Inherently Perfect) Deep—Into a More and More Clearly Conscious state of mind (and Of Conscious Realization, Even Prior To mind).

The Unconscious (As mind) Is the Fundamental functional mind (or the functional Source-mind). It Is Constantly Active and Effective, but (Perhaps Because its contents are Not objectified in a conventionally Familiar and conventionally Usable mental form) it Is Not (In The General Case) Immediately (or Directly) known (or Acknowledged) By the Conscious mind. Therefore, Between the Unconscious mind and the Conscious mind Is a Transitional mind—the Subconscious (or dreaming and dreamlike) mind. The Subconscious mind Is Immediately Below, or Behind, or (In Superconscious states, Developed or Revealed Via The Subconscious mind, or Process) Even (Spatially) Above the Conscious mind—and it Is (or May Be), To A Degree, Directly (or Consciously) known, Acknowledged, and Used (or Expressed) By the Conscious mind. Therefore, the Subconscious mind Is A Communications Bridge Between the Unconscious mind and the Conscious mind (and Between the Conscious mind and the Unconscious mind).
