Jed McKenna's Theory of Everything - Part 1 of 4

We are programmed from birth to believe that our existence is an unsolvable riddle, but if we make an honest effort, we discover that mystery itself is the riddle. Not just what is the big mystery, but why is there any mystery at all? And what if there isn’t? What if the Mysterium Tremendum is just an internal belief without any external counterpart? What if the answers to life’s biggest questions were all hidden in plain sight?

     “If man will strike, strike through the mask!
      How can the prisoner reach outside except
      by thrusting through the wall?”
                                                  -Captain Ahab

Those interested in striking through the mask will welcome a theory of everything that makes sense, doesn’t rely on religious or scientific chicanery, and can be easily understood. And those familiar with Jed McKenna and the Enlightenment Trilogy will know that it’s not just a theory.

1. That Which Cannot Be Simpler

Jed McKenna Wisefool Press PDF
“How long do you think this will take?”

“We’re unlocking all the mysteries of creation, you can’t find some room in your schedule?”

“But if you’re saying it’s so simple…”

“Fine. Under five minutes......... See All Chapters

2. Here We Go Again

Jed McKenna Wisefool Press PDF
That’s how this chapter originally began, and how it still does, I suppose. The original version went on way too much without actually saying much, so I pared it back to not so much, as follows............

3. This Thing You’re Reading

Jed McKenna Wisefool Press PDF
One problem with this theory-of-everything project is that I never had to reduce my new worldview down to words before, and it’s a pretty weird thing to do. This is not a minor issue. This is paradigm-level stuff and virtually everyone, regardless of other differences, inhabits the same top-level paradigm. How would you describe your reality to someone from another? Can you even think of a story or film that takes place in a different top-level paradigm? I’ve wracked my brain for many long seconds without success.

The paradigm gap between reader and writer is real and wide. I’m expressing theory, but I’m not operating from theory. I’m decompiling the enlightened perspective for the purpose of expression, but this is my living reality. I suppose it’s to be expected that any paradigm other than one’s own must necessarily seem insane, but if that’s where truth leads, then that’s where seekers gotta go............ See All Chapters

4. The King of Pointland

Jed McKenna Wisefool Press PDF

“Behold yon miserable creature. That Point is a Being like ourselves, but confined to the non-dimensional Gulf. He is himself his own World, his own Universe; of any other than himself he can form no conception; he knows not Length, nor Breadth, nor Height, for he has had no experience of them; he has no cognizance even of the number Two; nor has he a thought of Plurality; for he is himself his One and All, being really Nothing............

5. Hammocky Ponderings

Jed McKenna Wisefool Press PDF
“C-Rex?” asks Karl.

“Yeah, C-Rex, consciousness is king, as opposed to U-Rex, universe is king, which is the reigning paradigm we all know and love.”

Karl reads through my notes. He takes his time.

“No,” he says, “I don’t think so.”

6. Chinatown

Jed McKenna Wisefool Press PDF

We’ll see this again and again in the following pages. There might be five apparent contradictions in a single sentence. My advice; don’t get caught up in the wording. Worry about the meaning, not the challenges of expression. Don’t be one of Descartes’ quibblers – don’t settle for so little..........

7. Consciousness Defined

Jed McKenna Wisefool Press PDF

Now it gets tricky. There are actually two types of consciousness; Atmanic and Brahmanic. AC/BC. Atmanic Consciousness is the I Am of the perceiver-perception-perceived dreamstate. Atmanic Consciousness is grounded in Brahmanic Consciousness, which is undifferentiated and absolute; no perceiver, no perception, no perceived. How does untrue Atmanic arise from true Brahmanic? I don’t know. Go ask Maya. Actually, I do know. Untrue Atmanic doesn’t arise from true Brahmanic, because untruth does not exist. There is only truth. Brahmanic Consciousness is our absolute nature, Atmanic Consciousness is our living reality. Consciousness is true, the contents of consciousness are not............
