>If I started a religion it would be the religion of RelativeEverything. Patanjali describes the mind forming around perception
in three phases. First there is the limitless potential world ground
or the raw ingredients where nothing is recognized as separate; then
there is differentiation or pulling out or recognizing an element and
naming it; and then there is particularization or the centering on
the named element. I would add a fourth phase to that; relating

So, do you see the rt brain as that
which forms the first perception,
the left brain as forming the second,
and the left brain centering on
that named element?
And perhaps the right brain then relating
and seeing relationships?
By the way, which translation of Patanjali's
Yoga-sutras have you used? I've got the
one by Pandit Usharbudh, and it's not written
in what I would consider 'everyday English'.
It makes my brain hurt trying
to understand what he's saying.
