Reduced activity – expanded
What we don’t know when the idea-based logic is new for us, is that the spin-off ideas we put into practice are what determine our practiced master idea. Practiced spin-off ideas are our ideas about why we should start an activity, for instance, or what we decide that activity should or shouldn’t include. In other words, our actions determine our practiced master idea and with that, how much happiness we can attain.
The sublime MASTER IDEA, which realizes the sublime JOY, is marked by absolutely no activity. The limited Master Idea, which realizes extreme Joy, is marked by peaceful activity in an originally bountiful and magnificent Nature. The maximally misunderstood master idea, which leads to civilization and the so-called normal life with relatively little happiness and fulfillment, is marked by an almost all-encompassing repertoire of activity to preserve goals and strategies in a harsh and significantly ravaged Nature.
Experiment 3 involves more than just lowering the amount of activity. It’s about gradually relinquishing more and more of the number, intensity, and kind of activity in a normal life that differs from the kind of activity which marks a life in league with Nature.
The activity typical for a normal life and civilization is the kind that involves pursuing goals of token happiness using methods that reduces happiness and meaning still further.
Experiment 3 involves gradually abandoning the nearly all-encompassing repertoire of activity with trivial goals and destructive methods while gradually resuming peaceful activity that allows greater happiness to enter what’s left of original Nature.
