SelfDesign Integral Principle #3 by Brent Cameron
Learning is an Embodied Experience
The only subject is subjectivity. The idea that there are facts and a “real world” as objective and external aspects of reality is an idea based on some disembodied assumptions (Lakoff & Johnson, 1999). The world is in my experience. There is a very thin veil between what is inside and what is imagined as outside. From the outside looking in, the veil is a curtain that becomes impossible to see behind; however from the inside looking out, the veil is the boundary between the integrated internal and external aspects of one’s experience. The metaset is the unconscious mind, the subset is the conscious mind and therefore the logic of the conscious mind cannot begin to understand the logic of the unconscious mind.
