PARA-META SUBJECTIVITY: POST-SHOCK/RENEWED BLACK AWAKENING
By Kofi Forson
Essence of livelihood as a human person, or the tradition and origin of one's existence as para-exemplar begins with orientation on matters pertaining to identity, family dystopia, and culture, traditional and transnational.
Once given into forms of spirituality, assuming the role of ghost, claiming the highest self or with parameters broadened towards the acceptance of God as guide and principal ruler, one's para-existence is channeled.
The ghost persona is deliverable when one lives beyond the means of the human equivalent. That is when the conscience is pulled beyond what it's capable of ascertaining. The body then reaches a limit. Life hereafter assumes an experiencing of the body afloat, hence the spirit manages all that is felt and sensed.
Future assumption that one is alone in the world is void of any truth or reality, since, firstly, we are made of human flesh and blood through the union of two physical beings. Thus, the psychic and psychological references to the mother or father figure are examples of a fury of instinctual responses and reactions which determine prosperities for a fuller life, a quagmire which is reflected upon and adds to the complexities of living.
Our recognized gender identity prepares for the impressions and interpretations one makes during the life experience. These are the masculine and feminine prioritizations which determine what is felt, acted upon, imagined and rendered cancelable or embraceable.
Citing of a Trans or queer identity is with relevance to what is familiarized with the human subjectivity. Perhaps societal acceptance is not without rejection. Hyper-supposing a given speculation of self-origin.
Who or what determines such a conclusion, rejection of one's gender at birth, transforming into a preferred gender?
Is the trouble with love; relentless power granted the human being as a sexual animal?
Love as a demon renders the sex act hellish. More so, the human person's ability to imagine, further suppose the role of animal, rather lover, a human element which allows for absolute enhancement of the act becoming the dynamo that meets a measure of death.
The French interpretation of the orgasm as "little death".
Our para-selves are relevant to the ordered physical human being only if one thinks beyond the physical rendering.
The human body as a physical specimen is susceptible to violence, that of a fallen world, but without determination there are psychical probabilities when a person is traumatized, an occasion when the para-subjectivity of oneself is under torture. The experience doesn't border physical violence, rather it is interpreted through examples of panic or psychic attacks, moments when the body and its mind break down from extreme stress.
Another example of para-subjectivity is para-sexuality. A transient experience when the body and its mind are overwhelmed and under the governance of a spirit or ghost. There's a mild suggestion of rape. Not an actual physical rape but the inability to resist as the mind is fixated on an unwanted sexual advance and the body sways and swerves to a sexual rhythm.
The psychical breakdown of the human mind and the effect it has on the body can be referenced to psychiatry. An informal interpretation would suggest chemistry, much as the biochemistry of an individual determines their ability to adjust to the environment, be it natural or disordered psychology, the concept of what is chemical is of a normalized human manifestation where one feels, emotes, releases endorphins, or becomes perplexed when under stress.
The prefix "para" therefore assumes an entity or spirit or ghost. The soul of the human body as it travels through lived human experiences and takes on a life of its own.
Points of reference are dictated in warrior personas and those who serve as essential and eternal gifts to human lives.
Blessed in the spiritual community is the realm of the Holy Spirit.
The abundance of humility it requires to absorb this realm and come to an understanding of forgiveness; most importantly allow this spirit to enter the body. A process which requires trips through darkness, hopefully resolved moments when the Holy Spirit enters the body, are all means of reclaiming the body in its non-physical, eternal self.
In keeping with the truth, we are not alone, is the work done to accept and respect order within the universe. This presents one with multiple interpretations of God.
That there is a God is a message that frees the human body from self-torture. To say, there is a power greater than me; I turn to this power at times of uncertainty, responds to one's humility and willingness to transport whatever trouble one feels to a superior entity.
Much as prayer and meditation helps with the balancing of call and response between the human person and the God reference, there are many forms of behavior that allow for such frequency, yoga for example, which recalls the idea of seeing beyond the physical self.
The behavior of being in the moment yet allowing the spirit to exist on another plain helps enhance the para-existence.
Endurance in the living process comes with an acquired experience. Knowing one's prowess or power of the chi isn't asserted as a power play. With regard for experience, it comes only in the living and not the imagined. We may exist in our minds but once we dare to put our beliefs to the test we are living beyond our human self.
Gaming is an example of the fantasy world being a blueprint for actual life battles.
This is where our meta-selves break with tradition and become full-fledged entities of absolute power.
Given one's imagination, much can be said for the athlete's confidence overcoming the experience of another. And yet experience begets confidence. Only difference being confidence is a natural drug.
The most courageous are those who know no limits to their power.
The manic as a depressive knows defeat. Both sides to this coin are necessary to acquire the power which makes one meta-sensed.
Many speak of absolute power usually with a weapon in hand. The operative metal object only stands to reveal the absolute fear one feels and thus merits possession of the weapon.
To reach the status of meta, one has to come from defeat, see into the beyond, know about the life damage endured, prepare for the trials and tribulations in reclaiming the self.
The transcendence, the mind being put to the test, reveals the original threat to the human body. The overcoming of this threat is victory only very few are able to experience.
The para-meta self therefore is an example of the baby leaving the womb. We experience this once. Resolve with which the para-meta human deals with trauma or professed defeat to level the forces of fear and triumph reveals notion of self-referencing the self as a mirror copy.
The para-meta being then looks into that mirrored-self and sees a spiritual being beyond the very self.
This is the notion of para-meta: power granted thee doesn't belong to you.
In the face of absolute power, how does one promote free will and encourage a living process where one allows for that spiritual being beyond the very self to work in accord with our vulnerability and humility to bring about our exceptional self, a persona, ethic which is revolutionary in its imagined existence.
The cycle of work, rest, repeat is method for any life.
There are those who work portions of the cycle in extremes.
The manic spends time expressing mania. End result is downfall of depression.
The cycle is lived moments at a time.
The most exaggerated examples are that of years lived under extreme measures. Best way to interpret this is the Shakespearean three acts of a play, or the simplified "birth, work, death".
With utmost extreme measure of living or working for years, it results in another several to many years experiencing deathly means.
This is the body at a crash or burn out.
What this certifies is our post, post-post realms.
To live a traumatic experience and survive brings with it many years to a lifetime of continuous trauma.
The term what doesn't kill you makes you stronger is relative if and when, conclusively, it is made known what doesn't kill you also shocks you, which essentially becomes the post shock realm.
The post-shock realm places the individual in a form of existence whereby his conscience is under attack from the prior experiences of shock.
These are trending prospects for a lifetime undergoing moments when the mind is traceable back to points when the mind and body endured trauma.
PTSD of a veteran or soldier from war is a good example. A person having endured acts of violence perhaps physical or psychical whether it's in a prison setting or family household.
Best defined the mind at rest experiences forms of awareness. These are impressions given of one's sensitivity and vulnerability. Without defiance or a shield to protect, the sensitive mind undergoes extreme measures which may be dealt with at face value, meaning without help or protection.
Rawness of the human body experiencing trauma recalls moments of fear. Lived fear repeating itself, or an impression of fear being experienced for the first time.
Fear is the base root of every conscience. It is important to know what the body rejects in order to possess the ability to overcome it. In some cases, the mind and body are triggered not by an experience, more so, the culprit or person who is the cause of the experience.
Living in the post-shock realm one has to prioritize a safety net. Fear becomes intensified as paranoia. Shock from the experience permeates the conscience in a hot and cool mode creating a fog-like perception of the living experience.
Jungian or Freudian psychoanalysis is a form of self-mirroring when the patient or client can subject the mind and body to the lived experience of shock and as per guidance from a therapist, the probable notion of fighting back as a past-post cause enables clarity from the points of shock.
Micro aggression, psychical shock, experienced as stress and anxiety, forms a linear pattern to post-white shock.
The black mind central to its origin of thought and knowingness is predominantly triggered by a colonized history. Our post-colonial history symbolizes that constant bell ringing to remind us that our minds are subjected to triggers from a past shared history, slavery as a common reality, but also examples of displacement in our modern history.
Post-white shock commonly represents the black person's resistance from white influence. This form of revolt in the black person sharpens the cause of the shock felt from the prior lived history with white people. These moments of psychic shock are felt at any given point when the black person becomes overwhelmed due to a trigger from a white person.
In philosophical terms post-white shock is viewed as a narrative. More than just a trigger, it becomes a conditioned means for existing when the black person builds resistance to the original sins of slavery or acts of colonization of the black mind. In doing so the black person is engaging in meta-notion of looking defiantly at fear, managing rules for change.
Modernized black activism is a meta-stance.
The reshaping of the black mind as a hyper-verse recognizes the white construct of denial. The exact moment now where acts of self-delivery from reverberations due to centuries of violence, colonization and death must be engaged through self-education, work done at the university, or stages of personal growth.
The renewed black conscience is occurring at a time now of the Covid-19 pandemic. When a black female justice Ketanji Brown Jackson has been voted into the nation's Supreme Court. A time when societal violence, along with the politicization of our conscience are forms of a post-post modernity defined by white nationalism/black revolt.
The pandemic is referential to all the elements of the para-meta existence and the shock of post trauma.
These are times of "death and birth, birth and death".
Our post-conscious minds are under torment of a post-post conscience.
We are living the examples of the selves we forecasted or hoped to be.
There's no looking back.
The time is now.
