Linear Thinking & Holistic ThinkingWhat has been described in the message above is an example of linear thinking and holistic thinking. It is also an example of “either/or” thinking compared to “both” thinking. A tomato is both a fruit and vegetable. This is easily understood by understanding the identifiers humans use for themselves. Despite the many identifiers humans attach to themselves, we know that not only are we each identifier, but we are also simultaneously two identifiers and three and many more, even though those identifiers are different words, sound different and seem different.
So it is with humans, tomatoes and all else. We must use linear thinking to understand the parts and also use holistic circular thinking to integrate the parts into the whole and understand the whole. Linear thinking is more suited to the short-term and fragments rather than the long-term whole. This combination becomes known as curvilinear. Our thought processes must employ the concept of two truths, one of which is the vantage point. Other examples of the two truths are scattered thickly throughout these messages, throughout our bodies and throughout life. Linear and holistic are one example of the two truths. Once we again become acquainted with the two truths concept, we will much more easily understand the linear and holistic. All ways of knowing must be employed in the process of learning. One of those ways, which we have been programmed to ignore, is to learn from lies and learn from that which we disagree with and from that which is suboptimal. ”Universal Worldview: The Flip Side Is SubOptimal, Unity Consciousness #213” ”Twin Context Of Time: Repetitive Circular & Non-Repetitive Linear, Unity Consciousness #637” ”Final Thoughts About Time & Our Motions, Unity Consciousness #643” ''Epigenetics Of Ethnic Group Thinking Of Human Sub-Groups, Review, Critical Analysis, Blending & Clarifications, Unity Consciousness #921” ”Left & Right-Brain, Whole Brain African Psychology, Unity Consciousness #961”
