Summary of “A (potential) Cycle of Consciousness pt.1”
(summary of an older post in this blog)
We begin life without consciousness of the “self” and we move to a point where we re-discover how interconnected (and interdependent) we are to everything else. This awareness may lead to a transcendence of the “micro self”. This may also become the beginning of a “macro-self” that includes humanity and the environment at large.

This means that somewhere along the line we realize that we are both: micro-and-macro-selves within a process that cycles.

Today I found this diagram by Toru Sato. According to the blog posting where I found it, [1] it is from a book called The Ever-Transcending Spirit, [2], and it deals with the “cycle of life”.

This diagram and my earlier posting seem to mirror each other at a high-level of abstraction.
