Drausti, tai versti abejoti.

Penkta abejonė turėtų būti neigiama, Ar iš tikrųjų neprotinga?, taip kad paskutinės trys abejonės yra visos neigiamos.

Širdis sako, Taip, tai neprotinga, nepajėgiu svarstyti, o pasaulis sako, Taip, tai neprotinga, pajėgiu svarstyti.


Šešios abejonės

  • Ar man iš tikrųjų patinka? Kaip man atrodo?
    • Širdis: Patinka - man neatrodo
    • Pasaulis: Patinka - man atrodo
  • Ar man iš tikrųjų reikia? Ką kitą turėčiau veikti?
    • Širdis: Reikia - nieko kito neturėčiau veikti
    • Pasaulis: Reikia - ką nors kitą turėčiau veikti
  • Ar iš tikrųjų tikra? Ar sudarytų skirtumą?
    • Širdis: Tikra - nesudaro skirtumo
    • Pasaulis: Tikra - sudaro skirtumą
  • Ar iš tikrųjų keblu? Kas nuo manęs priklauso?
    • Širdis: Keblu - nuo manęs priklauso
    • Pasaulis: Keblu - nuo manęs nepriklauso
  • Ar iš tikrųjų neprotinga? Ar pajėgiu svarstyti klausimą?
    • Širdis: Neprotinga - pajėgiu svarstyti klausimą
    • Pasaulis: Neprotinga - nepajėgiu svarstyti klausimo
  • Ar iš tikrųjų neteisinga? Ar taip turėtų būti?
    • Širdis: Neteisinga - taip turėtų būti
    • Pasaulis: Neteisinga - taip neturėtų būti

===God as {{Anything}}===

We may conceive God as anything. God as anything is certain. Things are just as he wishes. But we conceive this by thinking that everything wishes for something.

The structural context for certainty is that there can be doubts.

Counterquestions address these doubts.

Counterquestions let us go beyond ourselves as to what we care about, they let us take the perspective that is certain.

We thereby care about our own point of view, which manifests itself as our relationship with others.


God is certain, he wishes for something, things are just as he wants. Good is Not Wishing-for-something, and is expressed by responses to doubts. The Wishing-for-something is expressed by subject-object-process and the Not is the distinction of their being without or within a system.

 without systemwithin system
objectbeneficiarytheme, patient
processgoal, experiencelocation

With regard to the good, we get the doubts:

  • do I like this? like is an agent of good
  • do I need this? need is a beneficiary of good
  • is this real? real is a goal/experience of good
  • is this problematic? problem is an instrument of good
  • is this reasonable? reason is a theme/patient of good
  • is this wrong? wrong is a location of good

Each of the doubts relates two perspectives. These perspectives are distinguished by responses to the doubts, counterquestions which discriminate between them, which is from the heart, and which is from the world?

Here the null for life is Why, which from God's point of view is the question Why? This question arises in the counterquestions:

  • How does it seem to me? connects the choices Why (do I like)(= it does not seem to me) and How (do I like)(= it seems to me).
  • What else should I be doing? connects the choices Why (do I need)(= I should be doing something else) and What (do I need)(= I should not be doing anything else).
  • Would it make any difference? connects the choices Why (is it real)(= it makes no difference) and Whether (it is real)(= it makes a difference)

This is a choice between the perspective of the heart (God) and of the world (life). The choices of the world correspond to the topologies: object - it seems to me, process - should not be doing anything else, subject - it makes a difference. The other three counterquestions seem to express taking a stand, following through and reflecting.

One way that we approach Everything is that Everything wishes for Something (Not Everything). In other words, Everything is certain. Things are exactly as Everything wishes.

Our minds are not able to directly conceive of all things being exactly as wished. There is nothing here for us to conceive! Instead, our mind provides us with a structural context, which is that we can have various doubts . We either ignore these doubts, or we take them seriously and acknowledge that we cannot trust our experience. We address our doubts by raising counterquestions that help us find our bearings. One of these counterquestions is What do I truly want? This counterquestion expresses the state of mind which grants that all things are exactly as wished for.

Counterquestions allow us to take up the perspective of another, and so to care about others.

The seven issues are raised by the seven doubts : 1. Do I truly like this? 2. Do I truly need this? 3. Is this truly real? 4. Is this truly problematic? 5. Is this truly reasonable? 6. Is this truly wrong? 7. Am I truly anxious? [11/00, Andrius Kulikauskas]

The counterquestions are questions that we can ask to find our bearings when we cannot rely on our experience because we suspect that we may be brainwashed. For example, suppose I start to wonder, "Am I a robot?" I can ask the counterquestion, "Would it make any difference?" If it does make a difference, then I can look for that difference, and if it doesn't make a difference, then it's of no consequence. The counterquestion helps me find my bearings, regardless of the answer. There are eight counterquestions: 0. What do I truly want? 1. How does it seem to me? 2. What else should I be doing? 3. Would it make any difference? 4. What do I have control over? 5. Am I able to consider the question? 6. Is this the way things should be? 7. Am I doing anything about this? The counterquestions address the corresponding doubts , for example, the counterquestion 3.Would it make any difference? addresses doubts of the form 3.Is this truly real? Interestingly, the answer to the counterquestion is always independent of the answer to the doubt, so the two questions can be thought of as orthogonal. Structurally, each counterquestion can be understood as a different way of placing a perspective (of God, a person in general, a particular person) in a situation (of a person in general, a particular person, the world). See Andrius Kulikauskas on the Counterquestions . [10/00, Andrius Kulikauskas]

The counterquestions distinguish between the perspectives of the {{heart}} and the {{World}}, or more broadly, between EternalLife and {{Life}}. Note that the heart is what is left in the absence of God, and the world is what is left in the absence of human.





ThinkingHats EdwardDeBono has a system of [http://www.edwdebono.com/ six thinking hats] (which is trademarked). Here is an expression of this phenomenon in terms of the {{Counterquestions}}:


Consider the WaysOfCaring. Here, everything is caring for its own perspective.

Bendravimas su smurtingaisiais

We can often model our intuition as a set of principles that express the counterquestions. For example, a different counterquestion resonates in each of the principles of nonviolent engagement:

  • 0. Live through their point of view
  • 1. Be straightforward
  • 2. Be thorough
  • 3. Be vulnerable
  • 4. Let them win
  • 5. Seek clarification when confused
  • 6. Stick to your principles
  • 7. Have something to share
