Wait no that is not what I meant apparently https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lateral_thinking
It is like there are spiderwebs of neural connections from which each starting point is only linearly subjective from its own non-objective viewpoint, ergo necessitating the usage of all points of light on the spectrum in order to see and analyze a particular situation or object of inquiry. It is a process by which you are not so easily duped by your own inherently flawed and subjective perceptions whereby multiple blindfolded people would touch a part of an elephant and come to wildly different conclusions as to the nature of an animal. When you see a hologram you are only looking at it from one vantage point, and likewise, a person on the other end of the room would see a very different static image from which only a vague conjecture and stipulations are possible based on predictions of what you expect the other side to look like, which is necessarily subjective. As such, this is the problem with looking at both God and the self, or Soul, and is a problem with understanding what is the geist of life and creativity and reality generally. In other words, you have to look at the system as a whole, which the main problem is looking at a puzzle and knowing the ultimate picture you're going for, it's just the tedium of finding the right pieces to fill it in.
>Thich Naht Hanh compares such instances of knowing God, or becoming enlightened, like a dialogue between a land turtle and a fish. One might represent enlightenment/believing in a God and the other perhaps with their own way of seeing the world and obtaining enlightenment/God.
>Fish- Look here turtle, how I can drink this water and breathe it to give me life. Breathe this water, shelled friend and surely you can believe/become enlightened.
>Turtle-Look here fish, how I can inhale this air and breathe it to give me life. Breathe this air, scaled friend and surely you can believe/become enlightened.
>As you can see, both have defined their own type of enlightenment but neither seem to understand the other's tactics of doing so. Just as humans. We can try to explain all we want on how to believe/disbelieve in this or that or even on how to become enlightened.
And so on and so forth.
