Symbology, Pattern Recognition and improving metaphysical function
Updated: Dec 18, 2022
Lately I have been consuming a lot of Jonathan and Mattieu Pageau videos. Both brothers are Christian and exceptionally gifted in the realms of decoding symbology. Jonathans YouTube channel is called, The Symbolic World.
For ever I have been attracted to thinkers that were integrating the feeling aspect into their work. I myself have gone down many rabbit holes into the deepest dark web corners seeking gnosis, (deep knowledge) that often involved high levels of symbology which requires a skill of pattern recognition, intuitive capabilities, and then the connection of complex and often abstract material.
Just like the Bible, it often takes a great deal of subjective theory before we can delayer deeper hidden truths. And it’s also challenging to communicate when we’re debating on what were feeling as we are diving deep, as we all like to be right when we feel something personal and important to us.
I find myself asking how we can get better at leaving room for our subjective experiences as we seek for knowledge and learn how to utilize not just executive functions but rather the metaphysical and “feminine” intuitive gifts that we all have but often find difficult to embody.
Why is it so difficult for modern society to recognize patterns before quick judgements and reactions that often lead to divide and conquer mentality, fragmentations, and polarizations?
It is difficult for modern civilization to recognize patterns and symbology for several reasons. One reason is that modern society tends to place a great emphasis on scientific and logical thinking, which can make it difficult to see the value in symbolic or intuitive ways of thinking. Additionally, the rapid pace of technological and social change in modern society can make it difficult to see patterns or connections that may not be immediately apparent.
Another reason why it can be hard for modern civilization to recognize patterns and symbology is that many people have become disconnected from nature and the natural world. In traditional societies, people often had a deep understanding of the natural world and the symbolic meaning of various elements of nature. However, in modern society, many people are removed from nature and may not have the same level of connection to the natural world. This can make it difficult for people to see the patterns and symbology that are present in nature.
Finally, the constant barrage of information and stimuli in modern society can make it difficult for people to focus and pay attention to the patterns and symbology that are present in their environment. With so much information available, it can be easy for people to get overwhelmed and miss important patterns and connections.
Overall, there are many reasons why it can be difficult for modern civilization to recognize patterns and symbology. These include a focus on logical and scientific thinking, a lack of connection to nature, and the constant barrage of information in modern society.
