“The lower space we live in is not a solid and continuous place. It changes, becoming more or less open, with each single thought.” TSK 244. This quote also raises a separate but deeply important question: is each thought its own ‘logos’? Its own read-out?
Logos according to the glossary of LOK is the governing understanding active within a temporal order. The ‘logos’ operates in accord with a specific and characteristic logic, establishing possibilities and defining limits. On a lower-level, the ‘logos’ is invisible, operating as ‘the (temporal) way things are’. With more knowledge, the focal setting shifts, and the ‘logos’ becomes accessible as a structure to be investigated in terms of prevailing ‘read-outs’. As investigation continues, the distinction between ‘logos’ as knowledge and ‘logos’ as the prevailing order of time and space gives way to a more comprehensive ‘knowingness.
Logos is more pervasive, while read-out is only a focal setting of the whole. The important question raised above only applies in terms of a deeper or higher knowledge, because in the lower level the logos is invisible, and the read-outs are not independent and self-contained.
In a deeper level it is possible to say that a thought is a read-out of the logos, a communicative output by time of a particular focal setting on space. TSK 244 tells about the changes from one thought to another, and invites us to be sensitive to such changes focusing on the healthy ones and letting go of the others.
Perhaps a read-out can lead us have a glimpse of the logos, or the whole, it is just a matter of being open. This reminds me a Haikai from Basho:
When I look carefully
I see the nazuna blooming
by the hedge!
Nazuna is almost negligible plant blooming by the old dilapidated hedge along the remote country road, so innocently, so unpretentiously, not at all desiring to be noticed by anybody. Yet when one looks at it, how tender it is! Its very humbleness, its unostentatious beauty, evokes one’s sincere admiration.
