LAWS NECESSITATE BECAUSE
THEY ARE A CONSEQUENCE OF THE INHERENT NATURE OF THINGS

EVERY HEARTBEAT IS AN EFFECT OF THE PRECEDING ONE, AND A CAUSE OF THE ONE TO COME

 

The world we face NOW is in its sum a direct effect of the world that WAS, and a cause of the world that WILL BE.

What we come to know always follows that which already is. During the time it takes information to reach the recipient and become knowledge its source continues to undergo changes. The distance between an event and its receipt as conscious perception is a measure of the discrepancy that must result. 

By the time we come to know a certain reality, it no longer is what it was. The outside event that has produced its experience has been transformed in some measure. It has ceased to be, really. It is something different and something new.

Thus, only awareness of the self can be truly current. All empirical knowledge about a momentary state of the external world is ever belated. Even though for every-day purposes the delay may be inconsequential, what we consider reality is but an outdated perception.

Perception of the self is the perception of NOW. Perception of now is of that which we confront in the most direct and immediate way. Now is when the incoming sensory information impinges itself upon the mind.

The outside world is always ahead in time. Our perceptions are obsolete as we receive them. We live in a world which is no more. Our present is really in the past. The future has already taken place, and is on its way to become present. Our present is therefore always behind that which is latest. 

To compensate for this misalignment, the mind should only hold IMMUTABLE PRINCIPLES, and no specifics.
