Translation is a 5-step process of “straight thinking in the abstract.” The first step is an ontological statement of being beginning with the syllogism: “Truth is that which is so. That which is not truth is not so. Therefore Truth is all there is.” The second step is the sense testimony (what the senses tell us about anything). The third step is the argument between the absolute abstract nature of truth from the first step and the relative specific truth of experience from the second step. The fourth step is filtering out the conclusions you have arrived at in the third step. The fifth step is your overall conclusion.
The claims in a Translation may seem outrageous, but they are always (or should always) be based on self-evident syllogistic reasoning. Here is one Translation from this week.
1) Truth is that which is so. That which is not truth is not so. Therefore Truth is all that is. Truth being all is therefore total, therefore whole, therefore otherless, therefore one, therefore united, therefore harmonious, therefore orderly. I think, therefore I am. Since I am and since Truth is all that is, therefore I am Truth. Since I am Truth, therefore I am all the attributes of Truth. Therefore, being, I am total, whole, otherless, one, united, harmonious, orderly. Since I am mind and since I am Truth, therefore Truth is Mind (Consciousness).
2) Some psyches can be split in two by trauma at an early age.
psyche: spirit, breathe, life, being
split: divided, separated
trauma: wound, shock, jolt, to strike, surprise, unexpected
early age: not fully developed, youth, not adult
old: elder, superior, senior, senator
3) Truth being one cannot be divided into superior/inferior, senior/junior, adult/child, Therefore Truth is and always has been and always will be fully mature, fully grown, fully able. Truth being Mind (Consciousness) and Truth being all that is, therefore Truth is all-knowing. Truth being all-knowing, there can be no surprises, no jolts, no trauma in Truth, therefore Truth is that which is expected. Truth being one cannot be split into two, therefore Truth is indivisible. Truth being indivisible and Truth being Mind, therefore Mind is indivisible.
4) Truth is and always has been and always will be fully mature, fully grown, fully able.
Truth is all-knowing.
Truth is that which is expected.
Truth is indivisible.
Mind is indivisible.
5) Mind, all-knowing, indivisible, fully grown, fully mature, fully able, is all that is expected.
