Even though I see an entire world around me filled with a diversity of life teaming over the landscape like spraying mountains of water, there is a vortex, a center of gravity that reaches out and snatches me away unto itself. This unrelenting attraction is a complex of ideas and emotions I call myself.

As a central integral complex, each of us is, yet, a single constellation in the midst of many, many clusters. Our lights burn dimly as we gaze into the infinite blackness of space. However, light is our common heritage; it travels great distances, leaving behind the peripheral constraints of our outer limits. It creates a world of depth and dimensionality; its luciferous veil disrobes the orbs of night; it declares that which is and stows away from prying eyes that which isn't.

I believe for each of us the complex called self is the most meaningful complex of ideas and emotions, and it is this significance that is the center of gravity for each of our individual personalities.

However, I believe each of us is one out of innumerable constellations. The reason I use constellations to describe our ideational complexes is simply because I see each idea as a point of light and a cluster of ideas as creating syntactic structure, or that which we call sense.

Yet, as light escapes the gravitational pull of each star, so likewise consciousness escapes the gravity of each of our selves; in other words, it transcends one's self and brings to light other sentient beings and the surrounding environment.

OK, thanks for clearing that up for us.
