I’m glad you brought this out. The inner ear, the home of the vestibular system, is the first system to emerge in utero. Without an orientation in space the organization of the new life can’t happen, up/down. left/right, front/back give direction to the cellular choreography. As we catch the tone of voice from Mama ( up) and the tones move in and through us, our growing life form remembers, and the language system is already activated to match her sounds perceptually. Mother will use a syllable and a toe or finger will twitch… A hearing child of a deaf mother may not have this capacity activated early. After birth and with lots of attention from active live speakers can re-activate this learning in utero that this child missed, a learning that starts the coordination between perception/conception that is rehearsed in utero. In a weird way, long term practice of Clean Space and Clean Language starts to re-wire the nervous system(s) of those who engage with the practice. I sense Michael was able to demonstrate in his behavior some complex interior states , ( at one point he whirled around in his chair ) a kind return to these primordial areas of our somatizing development. There is also an inner eye re-connection that flat screen use can damage. Since my use of computers my lucid dreaming has dropped dramatically. Luckily, I can get it back if I read poetry out loud before bed rather than watch passively a YouTube video.
You mention the last seven minutes of the video. This is where I got the idea for the Clean Space Action Process that I am evolving with Michael and which is open to others who want to refine attention and share intention. The future of our communications is in our hands. Our hands move with our words and our interiors. It is curious that if we sit on our hands it is harder to convey subtle meanings. Somatics, Syntax, and Semantics are intertwined. Dance is a form of meta-communication that we neglect in education. The performing arts in general take a back seat to physics and science. This is a tragic blunder as the performing arts create conditions for high levels of abstraction
Ecologist, Jane Jacobs, said the side walk is what holds civilization together. People, perfect strangers, size each other up, smile, catch a vibe. This is greatly inhibited by car traffic and smart phone usage. I would say what holds the interiors of a civilization together is the dream image. Our monophasic culture has almost drowned out the polyrelational circuitry that the sharing of dream images stimulate. If we could teach our children lucid dreaming what kind of tech would they be creating when they grew up? Sadly, we are in the grip of a tech that is manufactured by faster-faster-bigger-bigger-more-more. The subtle ranges of our experience is denied as unreal or labeled as epiphenomena, just like steam coming off of a kettle. The question you ask of yourself in the dream is an interesting one. I can think of about twenty clean questions to ask. As I mentioned to Michael we need a dialogue partner. Basically, we are learning to use language to model space and time and what is just beyond. I will leave you with a quote-
" Trans-rational apprehensions can be ecstatic or more sober, more or less integrated within the individual; interpreted with greater or lesser sophistication; infused with love, light or bliss or characterized by emptiness and nothingness; remain temporary states or become more permanent states. From gross to subtle to causal to non-dual. One thing they all agree on is that there is a spiritual infrastructure to the universe, the ground of which is also the nature of being. This is the higher truth which needs to become the ordinary truth."-Paul Marshall
I am most drawn to dreams that reveal that spiritual infrastructure. Clean Language is still in its infancy but we who are working in this way, bodyworkers, dancers, singers, poets, dreamers of all kinds, are uncovering this vast artifact/infrastructure that our speech mirrors. When the mirror or the flat screen is shattered, something new might happen. Of course, we could end up speaking gibberish as we did in the fall of the Tower of Babel. Transformation tends to happens to a prepared mind. That preparation is what we can focus attention upon.
