Orbital Articulation: A Theory of Higher Expression


When I speak, I access the ideas that I want to relay. I then use the most useful words with which to express myself. I communicate myself more or less efficiently based on the words that I use, the emotion present and the purpose of my speech.  I am not always able to express myself adequately, but I keep trying. Now, when I attempt to express myself better, I make a conscious attempt to find the right words somewhere in my mind. There is a concerted effort to focus on something somewhere in an attempt to come back with a more adequate expression. 

An orbital articulation is a different way of approaching verbal expression. Instead of spelunking the mind for words, one focuses on the purpose, or agenda, in a non-locational capacity in order to find the expression. The approach requires a kind of “faith” in the incessant vigilance of one’s higher mind. The higher mind of the individual is conscious of every one of the individual’s thoughts and ideas. When it is said that the mind records everything on a subconscious level, this is actually the higher mind, the superconscious, recording the information. (The Unconscious and the subconscious are not synonymous. The subconscious, as well as the superconscious, are both subsets of the Unconscious.) 

In truth, the higher mind is the very source of the individual’s thoughts and ideas. Orbital articulation requires a reworking of the intellect to discard the idea that we actually create thoughts. It requires a kind of hope that the higher mind will provide the thoughts necessary for adequate expression. The very fact that one is alive demonstrates that this need is always fulfilled.

The approach is not advocating passivity nor is it implying that humans have no free will when engaging with higher thought material. In actuality, the higher mind is no different than the individual. They are one and the same although relatively estranged by perspective. Just as the individual may be subject to the subconscious effects of a fragmented aspect of her personality after intense trauma, so too does the higher mind exist as distinct from the common mind due to the pervasive traumas of our collective’s cultural conditioning. Self-actualization, in its many dynamic forms, allows us to reunite with that fragmented aspect of ourselves that affects us in a superconscious way, as distinct from the subconscious forms of affect foisted upon us by aforesaid personality fragmentations.

Through orbital articulation during conversation, focus on the purpose of one’s dialogue enables the higher mind to propose the word, or idea, most compatible with the purpose felt. The resonance of this “artifact” draws to it yet other artifacts of similar resonance in ever lessening compatibilities with the central artifact. This creates a kind of non-locational mental system where ideas orbit around other ideas almost indefinitely. Choosing the central artifact during conversation creates a sympathetic system reflex that draws in a series of like-purpose artifacts, or strings of resonance, to include within the conversation. 

Accessing this chain of similarly resonating ideas requires practice. At first, one chooses from the system of artifacts presented by the higher mind after focusing on the purpose, or intention, of the thoughts requiring expression. Failure to choose the central artifact, will decrease the level of efficient expression. Choosing, for instance, an artifact that “orbits” the central artifact will enable insight as to the artifacts that orbit that one. Should one fail to choose the next central artifact after failing to choose the initial one, there will be an even lesser degree of efficient expression and so on. 

Returning to a centrality of artifacts requires a refocusing of the conversational intent. This resets one’s ability to connect to the most effective element proposed by the higher mind, and reinitiates the nature of the most efficient conversational requirement. We only need to be okay with waiting or speeding up, depending on your natural pace, or tempoic imprint.
