Controversial fight between multiple patterns that get along together in one head.
Every day different thoughts and interests are attacking our minds, and our choice is not always obvious. If we don’t recognize them, the consequences are such that we say, “I didn’t mean anything bad, I don’t know how that came about”, “I only briefly got distracted and didn’t know this would happen!” Sometimes a full confusion in relationships or in a reaction to the circumstances happen. That’s because multiple “inner voices” are heard in the mind of an individual, which require action and provoke the similar area of interests in the surrounding people. For example, they “whisper” to the personality simultaneously,
- if money had been stolen from him: “I’m a bankrupt, I’m done”, “I will avenge the thief”, “I will solve the problem without revenge”, and even sometimes, “What a relief that I no longer have to worry about the safety of so much money”;
- if he’s being cheated: “I don’t trust you”, “I still love you”, “I’ll teach you for lying”, “I admit that you may not lie”.
As you can see, human consciousness is presented by the fragmented interests and desires, which are dictated by “the inner voices”. Psychology and Iissiidiology call them sub-personalities. This fragmentation causes us a lot of hassle, but this is it which allows us “not to stand still”, to develop and to have the freedom to choose own internal states. Let’s figure out with Iissiidiology, where subpersonalities come from to our minds, how to build relationships with people. In this way, we’ll try to understand how this information will help us to develop and improve our lives.
To do this, we will address the notions of the structure of human consciousness, which Iissiidiology understands as self-awareness: self-consciousness is a universal ability of any man to the simultaneous realization as “himself” — in the lower forms of “own” creative expression, and as “Him-Self” — in the higher forms of possible for Him, manifestations in the Macrocosmos.
These forms of creative expression have a gradation. In self-consciousness, there are areas or levels that an individual shows through the psyche now as “inferior”, now as “higher” forms of expression or experience. These areas are the most extensive categories of experience and interests, where discordant personalities in our head appear from. Iissiidiology highlights the next levels of self-consciousness:
- collective unconscious (instincts, unconditioned reflexes, the source of egocentrism),
- personalized self-consciousness (all conceptions about oneself as a personality and about own place in the world),
- collective subconsciousness (the source of bright intuitive insights, ideas, inspiration, love and wisdom).
- other, deeper levels of self-consciousness, active in our future — in cosmic Human.
Here we should pay attention to the sign of collectivity that binds all living beings together. From the information structures of the macrocosmos, self-consciousness draws the content for the emotions and thoughts. This information content is a collective resource. Every human being or animal converts individually an information in the personalized self-consciousness (or its analogue in animals). The collectivity of unconscious gives a sense of the pack, tribe, own community, but with the signs of “mine and someone else’s community”, “a collective of friends and alien, hostile collective (even if potentially)”. This is rallying for the sake of survival and ousting of “enemies”. And the collectivism of subconsciousness unites us without divisions — it is a philosophy of unconditional love, unity, brotherhood and unification with no signs of “friend-or-foe”. This is unity for the sake of construction and creative work.
Let’s compare interests that take place in the personalized self-consciousness of a man and are dictated to him by now the subconscious, now the unconscious. How does the criticism of a man sound like, in which “voices” of unconscious dominate? It sounds in a biased, insulting, malicious, provocative way, etc. Here is the projection of separation coming from the unconscious “friend-or-foe”. And how greatly it is noticeable when an unflattering information is conveyed by an individual driven by subconsciousness! There are different verbal phrases, and the different tone of the voice, and the selection of time and place for conversation. Thus, the individual non-verbally translates that he helps us, that he is at one with us. He really wants to help us and reports of unpleasant but important information to help, but not for the suppression and exclusion from us.
Thus, our interests come from collective subconsciousness or collective unconscious. In personalized self-consciousness, they are mixed in different proportions. As a result, we have a range of feelings, experience and thoughts with different shades (criticism, which is malevolent or benevolent; love, which is dependent or giving freedom). This specificity comprises the focus of close attention — the complex thought-feeling-experience seizing us right now. It is immediately reflected in the operation of the brain areas, neuronal circuits and in the release of hormones. Therefore, our choices — where to attract information from — are closely connected with our health and life expectancy.
It is important to know the characteristics of subconsciousness and unconscious to keep track of what prevails now in our choices — that is what will provoke the corresponding levels of self-consciousness in other people. Knowledge about levels of self-consciousness and corresponding self-awareness allow to understand:
- where “inner voices” or patterns of thinking and behavior come from,
- how they build our fate line,
- why some of the desires are fulfilled and others are not,
- how the surrounding world responds to the corresponding activity of consciousness. By the way, this activity is a great potential for the conscious choice of own destiny and the materialization of the goals and dreams,
- and where consciousness goes after death.
However, we are interested not only by what patterns we think and feel. Special attention is given to the contradictory struggle between multiple patterns that coexist in the same head. Where do the “I love and hate”, “I understand that it is bad and I am not allowed, yet continue to do” come from? This argument of “inner voices”, of patterns of thinking is the struggle between the subpersonalities in the consciousness. They are composed of the information of the subconsciousness and unconscious. But the concretization of this information to individual thoughts and emotions occurs in other components of self-consciousness — iissiidi-centers, and then a thought + emotion “package” is displayed in our psyche as the focus of close attention. The iissiidi-centers are chakras, which concept is expanded in Iissiidiology. The ii-centers reflect a higher “functionality” of self-consciousness. Read more about their structure and comparison with the chakras in this article.
One subpersonality is a well-established bundle of motivations, knowledge and experience — a cooperation of several karmic channels. This is a conception of an individual about himself on this issue with lots of emotions, feelings, motivations and reasons: “I am a strict mother”, “I’m a bad student”, “I’m afraid of heights”, “I love to travel” and so on. These are habits of thinking and behavior, “inner voices”, which are necessarily underpinned by biological reactions: the activity of the brain areas and neuronal pathways, the release of hormones and other physiological responses. The regular work of the same mechanisms in the brain and in the hormonal system reinforces the influence of subpersonalities in habits. It is a vicious circle: what personalities we focus on, those neuronal chains and sequences of a hormonal release are stabilized and push us again to appeal to the appropriate subpersonalities, and the latter instigate us to another strengthening of the biological mechanisms.
Each person has a host of subpersonalities, whose interests are very different sometimes. Today an individual appears to be kind and affectionate with the family; tomorrow he treats it with violence and cruelty, and the next day he regrets what he’s done. Now he is ready to do everything for the loved person, and a few minutes of conversation offend him enough to hurt this person. Subpersonalities — “I’m completely and utterly head over heels in love” and “I hate him” — from time to time appear in one individual as they are based on the information from different karmic channels of the iissiidi-centers. The catch here is that each subpersonality tries to displace the others and tries to gain the focus of close attention of this individual.
If one unconsciously rushes between these thoughts in own choices, it is possible to confuse the situation utterly. Resonating each time with a new subpersonality, the people surrounding us will get confused together with us: will trust and then be disappointed in us, will love and then hate. So we receive an invaluable experience. But sometimes one can get past it and move towards more harmonious interactions faster, if to know and understand more. What does one need to understand and do to keep the life from being a “battleground” of our subpersonalities, but to accept is as a “negotiating table” with them? How should one work with himself so that some subpersonalities gradually move away from the self-consciousness, and others build a happy destiny for their “master” — conscious man?
To answer these questions, one needs self-awareness based on a deeper understanding of the structure of consciousness, of the mechanisms of interaction between consciousness and the world. You can start to study individually these topics in Iissiidiology.
If you find it difficult to learn new knowledge without support, you can participate in online or full-time trainings at the Intellectual and Altruistic Center “Ayfaar” where information of Iissiidiology is presented in a practical and accessible form and deeply studied with the participants.
