Enhancing subjectivity[edit]

Certain types of consciousness are associate with enhanced subjectivity. Meditators have shown greater degrees of coherent alpha waves in the prefrontal lobes. Those meditator's states are largely considered to be very subjective, so there is an association between those alphawaves and the subjective experience.

The tradition of Vedanta established by Sankara of Indian fame mentions that the subject, the spiritual aspirant, who is equated with a spirit, a consciousness, "engulphs" the objective world. Also, there is mentioned a separateness and self-sufficiency to the subject that the objective world lacks. The objective world is said to totally depend on the subject. The subject is known as the "Seer" or "seer" and the objective world is known as the "seen". The engulphing of the seen by the seer begins by the fulfillment of the purpose of ths seen by the realization that the seen is for the seer. As this happens, the seen dissolves and the Seer abides in its own essence. GreySun (talk) 22:25, 22 July 2009 (UTC)

Body of the article[edit]

The two sections in the body of this article were written without any references and are actually no more than my own thoughts on the subject, something I realize is un-wiki like extremely, yet I can't bring myself to delete them because I am not trying to impose any biased information (at least for the most part), and because there is absolutely nothing else in this article- so it is at least good for people visiting this article to have some food for thought. That said, I do want to corroborate the words that I have written in order to give them validity and get rid of them if they end up being unverifiable. So I am working on doing some research for this article which I also do not understand why it is so empty!! Dudanotak (talk) 06:10, 13 April 2013 (UTC)

Of course, I could write my own philosophy book with my own thoughts on the subject. That way people (not _necessarily_ me) may decide for themselves how seriously to take my ideas (It is possible that using Deductive reasoning based on my initial assumptions, I arrive at an absurdity, then I might very well no longer take my ideas presented here seriously). If they agree with my ideas, then they may very well write an encyclopedia article and then cite my work as a reference. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Professor arithmetic (talkcontribs) 03:57, 7 August 2016 (UTC)


I think that I've observed that Omnipaedista (a dimension of awareness) and Wolfdog (grounds for predictable errors of judgment) have different opinions or perspectives about what 'subjectivity' is. I think that this contrast is grounds for what could become an edit war. I think they should talk this out before further editing. MaynardClark (talk) 05:20, 18 January 2015 (UTC)
