What I'm about to tell you is a story about connecting, and finding yourself . It starts in a place where everyone can relate to. A place where no one can go but everyone can see.
As the boy opened his eyes, he saw light for the first time. It was so bright but somehow the picture got really clear. He saw another figure, but couldn't quite make out the shape. He didn't know why he was there or where he came from but also knew it was for a purpose. As he was lost in his train of thoughts. The figure spoke and immediately, the boy recognized the sounds. Before the boy saw light, he saw darkness but could hear the sound of the figure, and how smoothing it was. The boy trusted that the figure could answer the question he kept asking himself. "What am I?" Before the boy could even figure out how to make a sound, the voice said "speak." The boy asked "What am I?" The soothing voice said he could not answer the question, because you are “whole”, or the perfect being of light. “You are all that is good in me, therefore I can not tell you because you are not aware of the other yet, that of which is not good, together you will find the answer: What am I?” His father explained that the boy had the power to create anything he desired however the catch was that he only had one chance to create himself. This creation had to reach self-assembly, or autonomous patterns without any help from the boy. The boy was confused, as everything he thought to himself was getting him nowhere and the more questions he asked, his father would have a answer, but they spawned another question and another...and another. The father interrupted him and explained that he has all the answers to his questions within, but thinking with the “other” will eventually give you the answer to the question: "What am I?" He then explained that he will only give six clues to create himself, because his father gave him 6 clues before him. The father explained that the 6 clues will guide him in different paths, but all paths lead to answer: "What am I?" Furthermore, the boy would most likely take 30 years to complete this task, and only then will he create himself again.

Clue #1
Everything that has a beginning has a end, but after the end is the beginning.
Clue #2
Create in balance, everything will have an opposite that will cancel each other out when they meet.
Clue #3
Make it extremely easy to do but extremely difficult to master.
Clue #4
Create in absolutes, and extreme ambiguities
Clue #5
Make it fun, like a game that never ends
Clue #6
You will lose yourself, but that's the point of being

The father now had to leave, but explained that he will find the boy again when he creates himself. The boy agreed but the figure didn't move. The father said he was having trouble letting go of his creation but then explained that his creator told him that letting go was just the beginning of the journey. The boy didn't understand what he meant but reassured his father that he will find the answer: What am I? The boy returned to his thoughts and wondered what he looked like. He then used his clues and came up with an idea to create the “other.” The other had a voice that wasn’t smoothing but tolerable. It was very truthful, so much that it sometimes hurt. It called itself, “Guts,” and called the boy “Brain.” The boy didn’t like the name, but he figured that Guts knew best because he created him. As time past they often argued about everything and couldn’t come up with anything that was worth creating. The 6 clues created more and more questions, however, as more time passed, they both created 6 separate clues of there own.

Clue #1
The Primordial Spiral
Clue #2
The Gaia Principle
Clue #3
The Fibonacci Sequence
Clue#4
Geological Time
Clue#5
Bodhisattva vow
Clue #6
Inner Worlds, Outer Worlds

The two finally came to agreement and decided to make a game called hide and seek. But there were as one. So they decided to create a huge explosion so they can be two. However, they miscalculated and exploded into a massive number: 274,207,280 x (274,207,281-1) to be exact. The 6 clues constantly created from the 6 clues without any help but eventually created a place where the two could be together again. This place is called Earth. The rest is history. The End.

This story is a interpretation of my own accord yet, very familiar if you got this far. It covers many different things that I have studied, however, they all came to the same conclusion. This conclusion is the notion that everything comes back to the same answer as everything is connected by the 6 clues. My answer to What am I?

I am the creator of this story.

Like it. Freedom requires recognition from the other.
Crito, we ought to offer a cock to Asclepius. See to it, and don't forget.

What do you think the "other" is?

That which makes self-creation and reassembly necessary.

Awesome, we believe that we are "one" but we are actually "two" This can be translated into "the word" and the "interpretation of the word". Some call it Logos and Rhema. Our minds work as "one" set of languages that speak to us and our 5 senses interpret for the Mind. In other words, you can say that the Mind has a "voice" but can not "see." So we evolved to interpret to ourselves in order to stay individuals. In other words, even our own interpretations have no effect on our minds as you read this and disagree with mostly everything I say. This is the Ego that is blocking you from accepting this as full faced as I speak from the heart. Only in person, or getting to know me will ease your Ego as Trust has that effect. Like the boy trusting his father to show him the way. Also, this is why people can not truly see what others have in other minds because its impossible to see something that wishes to be unseen. You can throw countless names of dead men at me to counter argue, but the story is about creating. And it doesn't matter how you create, it matters if you get the message and come to your own conclusion. Which you did.  Smile

I like this, kind of like saying 'there is something secret' but the secret does and does not have to exist simultaneously for us to even begin seeking it.

It is not until one encounters another that one begins to question their place, purpose and well, 'being'.

Reminds me of how separateness, although a necessity, is the meaning of sin.

The guts are like the passions and the boy is the active will?

Although there is a necessity for self-creation, when it occurs, there is also contingency.

Really great post, hope you stick around.

Thank you for your comments as I also appreciate the change in reputation. I love how you quote and come up with your own conclusions. That is the point of every sentence that was in the story. Your right, there are many possibilities but everything comes back to one point. The point is just that...your interpretation. This is the beauty of being.

To answer your question about the "Gut Brain" you can look it up but its basically how hunger can make you very primal. Its closely related to "Hara" or the place where the Japanese thought the "the light" was. The stomach or guts. Its also where characters in Dragon Ball Z explain where their power comes up. This can be seen in the episode where Gohan teaches Videl how to fly. This is also where life comes up, as a Women creates life in the Womb.

Again, I can tell you what the story actually is based on: Before the Big Bang. But that's just it. Its just a story. but created to create continuously autonomous thoughts in others.

The story seems to have the same sort of structure as most creation stories we see from Gnostic texts, or QBL.

I honestly don't know what those are, and I will look them up after this post. But the story is actually my .... 3rd grade level interpretation of what "it" comes from. I can't tell you what "it" is because the language to describe "it" is not yet invented but the 6 clues can help others find a better idea than the story.

The story is the end to the beginning, which is to say that "end" can be something "bad" like death, or the Bible calls it "the end of days" but it soon transitions to something good....a fresh start.

Something that many people have trouble doing.. just gathering all your things and moving to another city. It takes everything to let go to the past and start anew. Just how the father in the story had to do in order for his son to find his own way to find the answer. Just like I did when my finally moved on from my ex wife...this notion can be anything...basically a metaphorical "just let it go" or "the truth shall set you free"
