Thinking Out of the Box; The Box is Language

 

Part of language is categorizing and making distinctions. No way around that, that is what language is for: To express a specific and limited thought in the real physical world.

 

Comes the time we want to grow out of the box, there are no ‘Exit’ arrows painted on the floor. Consciousness is glued to the … uh, ‘conscious,’ physical mind; and the ‘out of the box’ area is everything else – the subconscious being that first step out.

 

Unhinging your thinking from the categorizations you began to collect when you were around two years old is a good exit tool: It is not theoretical or fuzzy, and is not attached to somebody else’s beliefs, philosophy or religion.

 

A way to do this as a physical exercise would be ideal, yes?

 

I found it. The tool is a set of illustrations that are attached to ideas which we can express in our known language, ideas that are also comfortable to our current mental software.

 

The subconscious experiences and thinks in pictures, you know. And it looks over the shoulder of the conscious operations all day being exposed to our language.

 

This is our first step out of the box. As you know, first grade leads to University eventually if you pay your dues.

 

You guessed it, didn’t you? That tool is Rider Waite Tarot.
