Working with Abstractions

The idea or term that an abstraction points to can be lost if we get in our own way. The composition or art that refers to an idea or concept, abstractionism, is a literal image created out of the idea that we can’t see with our own two eyes. Is it still considered crazy to make the invisible visible – the impossible possible?

There’s an esoteric nature behind the things we can’t see and they’re associated with wizardry to the point of having a foothold in traditional fiction and canon sayings. Something I did for fun on this blog was the meta series. In working with abstractions, they mirror the idea of meta and give us the capacity to move past the ideas that govern rules of ideas alone. Certainly moving beyond a personal ignorance of chaos will yield more understanding of said chaos.


Rapid succession and progressional achievement have their roles to play as we make our own initial discoveries – becoming the addition. As we discover, we subtract the things we believe or prove to be false – hold them in less regard.


As we become more aware of our discoveries and have more confidence in them, we verify them with other trusted sources of information – or not. Either way, by acting on the information we increase our capacity to act on it. Our experience compounds with the addition of action.


Say we decide that we want to grow and develop along the lines of self-mastery. It’ll show up in the other areas of our life and we can either grow to the demand or compromise for one reason or another. Let’s say we grow to meet our own demands. Our experience compounds even further with our capacity to apply it to everything we relate it to.

I’m not a polymath but I am curious on how they work. I would expect that something similar to this is the reality for them in their depth of experience. Maybe individuals such as Dr John Demartini could reveal the answer? He’s also a great example of the role gratitude can play in progress. This quote just happens to be on his home page at the time of writing:

“When we fail to conceptualize strong goals, our lives are determined by others.” – Dr John Demartini
