This term/symbol is my label for the Operational Energy of the Soul. The Apapsyche has two aspects with which it operates. One is the “Attn Aspect,” and the other is the “Awar Aspect”.
The Attn Aspect is one’s ability to focus [or concentrate], or to focus one’s attention upon phenomena. The Awar Aspect is one’s ability to experience that upon which the Attn Aspect is focused.
This symbol stands for Behavioral Science and the oxymoron ‘behavioral psychology’. It is the symbol by which I refer to modern mental health, and psychology. The training of BS&bp stresses the brain, thinking, and the behaviors of Man, while denying and ignoring the MIND, or [“-M-“] of Man.
The symbol C’etc, is pronounced “C_etcetera,” and it refers to the Virtues of Life the Soul is slowly accumulating by completing Karma over many, many lifetimes: Conscience, Discretion, Knowledge, Acceptance and Empathetic Understanding.
This symbol stands for “Conscious Awareness,” which is my term for that part of the dimension of Spirituality that serves as what the ancient Greeks referred to as “Self”. That is, that which enables a person to hold a sense of oneself as separate from others, and separate “Within” existence.
This Symbol stands for the primary Defense Mechanism of the MIND, which I refer to as the DM=SI: Defense Mechanism= Subtle Insanity. This mechanism was once identified by the name of Scotoma” by Fritz Perls in one of his books. Although he spoke to the observable symptoms of this mechanism, he did not explain what causes these symptoms?
The Intelack personality is that person “Within” whose Soul a limited amount of C’etc exists. This term is explained here: <http://about-psychology.com/Intelack.htmll>
The term Intellectualism is usually defined as ‘using the brain and intellect at the expense of emotion’. “At the expense” means not allowing one’s emotions to interfere in ones thinking. And to read this makes this practice seem like a positive thing. It is not positive, but it is the plight of those who are cut off from their natural processing of the energy of the [“-M-“], which is emotional energy. And being cut off is due to one of two things: 1. Not being in possession of Conscience [the Intelack], or 2. Being cut off because one’s [“-M-“] was ordered by oneself, in early childhood, to not expose one to one’s emotions. And this demand is always associated with some type of intense trauma, which is then repressed from “C-Awar” … Until released by proper Psychotherapy, or the end of ones present lifetime.
This symbol stands for the Left-Hemisphere of the brain, which is the Hemisphere to which the MIND of Man feeds Delusional Thinking, or D-Think, when the MIND seeks to control what a person is thinking. Or when the MIND seeks to divert one’s attention from some emotion Active within one’s MIND. In order for this diversion to work [as part of the DM=SI of the MIND] the MIND feeds [MIND-level] D-Think to the [L-H] of the brain, which requires the Attn Aspect of Apapsyche to transfer to the [L-H] in order to convert the MIND-level D-Think into brain-level thinking. While this is taking place, the Attn Aspects of Apapsyche is prevented from focusing on anything else [such as the emotion that is being repressed by the MIND].
This symbol stands for the Right-Hemisphere of the brain, which is the Hemisphere in which Intuition, imagination, creativity and emotionality are ‘experienced’. Access to the [R-H] is limited to those whose Souls have acquired a high level of C’etc, or Consciousness, or the Virtues of Life.
This is my new symbol for the MIND of Man, simply to remove it a bit further from the term MIND, which BS&bp tends to use interchangeably with that of the brain, meaning the [L-H] of the brain and thinking about things.
If my writing program would allow it, the symbol would more properly be this: “ M “ ￼ And the strikethough reminds us that the singular term MIND actually refers to the Higher MIND [which is associated with the Causal Region of Creation], and the Lower MIND [which is associated with the Astral Region of Creation].
A MIND or [“-M-“] was attached to each Soul when all Souls first entered the Creation. And the reason for this is explained in the section explaining the symbol “NSgy”.
The symbol NSgy stands for “Neutral Spiritual Energy,” which I believe to be the primordial Energy of Existence, which would, of course, mean this is the Energy of God. NSgy is unique as the Energy of existence in that it cannot be other than it is, ever. This is the reason the Soul [which Mystics tell us is an aspect of God] requires a MIND or [“-M-“] [which was Created by God], to enable the Soul to vicariously experience the Creation, while at the same time that Soul remains quite separate from the Creation.
Perhaps the greatest mystery in Life is how the Soul [with [“-M-“] attached — for as long as the Soul remains in the Creation] that Soul is never actually a part of the Physical Universe, which means the Soul is “Within” Man, and yet, it is not actually a part of Man. In other words, we have a case where the Soul is “using” a physical life-form to explore and experience the Creation, and yet… while the Energy of the Soul sustains the “life” of that life-form, the Soul is never actually a part of that life-form or Creation.
Although every thought or action that life-form has or takes is retained in the [“-M-“] of that life form, and it is this memory of the [“-M-“] that is “judged” at the end of each lifetime. This is the operation of the Law of Karma, and it is explained in in the Bible in Hebrews 9-27.
This means of course that the Soul is quite dependent upon the [“-M-“] which is attached to it for it’s experiencing of the Creation. This would explain the reason the NSgy of the Soul is so easily forgotten by the Soul, since the Soul is entirely dependent upon the MIND to explore the Creation.
This is also the reason Saints and Mystics are routinely sent into the Earth to help remind those Souls that are “ready,” to try and re-awaken them to who and what they are?
I will add to this list as time permits.
