Trinity Theory

Trinity Theory. Is it an answer to some inner question? Is it a religious inquiry? Is it an exploration of philosophy? Or is it, perhaps, just a simple quest for the truth? The answers are yes, yes, yes, and yes. Trinity Theory is all of those things. To understand Trinity Theory, certain items of indefinable importance must be explained. As Trinity Theory appertains to metaphysics, the meaning of said metaphysics must be clarified. The metaphysical field is the branch of philosophy that cogitates with first principles, includes ontology and cosmology, and is intimately connected with epistemology. A first principle is any axiom, law, or abstraction assumed and regarded as representing the highest possible degree of generalization. Ontology is the branch of metaphysics that studies the nature of existence or being as such. Cosmology is the branch of philosophy dealing with the origin and general structure of the universe, with its parts, elements, and laws, and especially with such of its characteristics as space, time, causality, and freedom. Epistemology is a branch of philosophy that investigates the origin, nature, methods, and limits of human knowledge. Teleology, also referred to as teleological doctrine of causation, is the doctrine that phenomena are guided not only by mechanical forces but that they also move toward certain goals of self-realization. Also, it assumes that final causes do indeed exist.
The understanding of the ideas that have been presented thus far now leads back to the main focus, Trinity Theory. Trinity Theory states that sentient beings, made of three parts, strive to grow, strengthen, and expand them through daily life. At any one time, any or all of them can be worked upon. While all three are closely connected, working on one will indirectly develop another. Basically, Trinity is the three-part quintessence of the divine being. In saying this, I mean to convey that there are three ontological parts that are the very ingredients of the metaphysical human being. These parts consist of the Mind, the élan vital, and also the Spirit. These are the going names for them, though they may be referred to under words of synonymous meanings. They are, in essence, the very quintessence of Trinity Theory.
Spirit is one of the three major parts of Trinity Theory. Spirit can be closely related to religion, and in fact, religion is a part of Spirit for some. Spirit also encompasses creeds, philosophies, and general beliefs. The Spirit is the portion of Trinity Theory in which the philosophy, belief system, or creed is formed, molded, and augmented. This will allow growth in the essence of a human through belief and purpose. While some believe that humans may not have a purpose, that belief can be considered a part of Spirit. The Spirit can be grown through religious study, through moral consciousness, and through finding one's own beliefs, or truths. Philosophy, or possibly even dogma, would be good wording to describe what this means.
The élan vital, or the soul, as it has been called, is one of three major parts of Trinity Theory. It may also be referred to as the anima. The élan vital is the portion of Trinity Theory in which the soul is strengthened. This can strengthen the overall essence of a person by expanding their experiences as a human being, and also by helping one to get in touch with her or his self. The soul can be strengthened and developed through many different methods, such as what we call soul-searching, self-reflection, and any process of getting in touch with the "inner" self. This does not mean that it has to be done alone, and in fact, using a friend can help achieve the same goal.
The mind is one of the three major parts of Trinity Theory. The mind is the portion of Trinity Theory in which knowledge is gained. This gaining of knowledge helps the mind to expand, which will in turn help the overall essence of your being expand, and allow you to be a more complete person. The mind can be progressed through learning and experiencing new things. This can be achieved through meditation, the passing on of information from teacher to student, and by self-study. There are many ways to learn, and anything that expands your mind will help your overall being if you use it the right way.
All three parts of Trinity Theory are continuously improved, and while some of the processes for realizing such have been mentioned, Trinity Theory is not absolute. This means that there are many ways, some unique to one person, some utilized by thousands, to fulfill Trinity. Every person can create their own way through expression of their abilities, and through living the way they like and want to live. This makes Trinity Theory and the ideas contained within very flexible for each individual, which is advantageous, because each reader may understand or perceive the concepts differently.
Trinity Theory has been stated. The quintessence of Trinity Theory has also been stated. Trinity Theory is the combination of the three parts previously mentioned, but it is more daedal than just a few defining characteristics. These three parts are synthesized to create this idea of Trinity Theory, and as such, they are woven together to form a complex web, with each touch on any one coordinate of that web affecting the structure as a whole. This means that while one may be sitting under the shade of an elm tree, quietly reflecting on her or his self, that person's soul will be strengthened, and at the same time, one can have an epiphany of truth, and come to conclusions about what she or he believes in. Another example would be searching inside oneself for answers. Whatever it is that one finds, she or he will have learned something about her or his self through it, thus becoming more accomplished in both the mind and élan vital.
Trinity Theory. Is it an answer to some inner question? Is it a religious inquiry? Is it an exploration of philosophy? Or is it, perhaps, just a simple quest for the truth? The answers are no, no, no, and no. Trinity Theory, at first glance, is all of those things. After a second, meticulous scrutiny, one can see that Trinity Theory can be all those things, but not necessarily is. It can be an answer, an inquiry, a philosophy. It can also be something else. Trinity Theory can be what binds life together, it can be the very foundations of reality, and it can be anything it needs to be. There are no restrictions, no limits, to what Trinity Theory can be applied to. Metaphysics is but one prospect, and only the beginning. Everything, small or large, insignificant or monumental, applies. Trinity Theory is merely an attempt to put substance of thought to the idea of what sentience means.

In Sanity

As one travels through the ether of life, knowledge of the universe and its contents is gained. Sometimes, it is learned through experimentation, sometimes, it is learned through situations that we experience, and sometimes, it is learned through our teachers and mentors passing on their knowledge. The real world has much more to show us, and much we have been shown. There is one piece of the puzzle that holds the rest together. A keystone, if you will. That keystone is our ability to agree on whatever is processed through our minds. What if that was taken away? Everyone would disagree about what they see, and nothing would be definite. If every human had his or her own definition of reality, how would ‘we’ know which one it is? The simple answer: we wouldn’t. Everyone would be living in their own reality, governed by their own laws. To make this easier to understand, we will use our reality as the ‘official’ reality, to compare to. While one person sees and does one thing, another person believes their own reality happened. Even when, according to our current reality, neither happened. That does not matter, of course, to these people, for they in fact have no knowledge of any other reality. Theirs is reality. Does this mean that there is no reality that is concrete? Maybe someone a long time ago got through to another person and at that point, two people believed that reality. Then another. There is power in numbers, and eventually, those numbers grow by their own nature. (According to our reality.) Sanity means, in effect, that you agree with the masses. It means that you ‘go with the flow’ and believe in whatever the masses decide. I am part of it. I believe in what I have deemed the ‘official’ reality. I cannot change that. It won’t happen under my own power. I wish I could, believe me, but I cannot. I can only attempt to change the ‘official’ reality to better fit my wants and needs. The only thing that has proven again and again to help someone change their reality is a truly disturbing event, or careful manipulation of the mind. Something that one cannot handle, or something that conditions it to a change in what was reality, and thus their mind escapes to a different reality. They are considered ‘insane’ by those of us in our reality. They are completely sane to themselves, of course. Now I ask, is it right to call them insane? Are they really? What if something happened, something big, which literally split the populations agreement on what is reality? What if there was a new ‘masses’ and so a new ‘official’ reality? Anyone who didn’t come to agree with the new one would be insane and have to be harbored in an asylum. So who is correct? Here is an example: Old Catholicism. Anyone who didn’t believe the way they determined was insane, or, to use the time’s terminology, a devil worshiper. A demon. An enemy. How is that right? You know what? Those devil worshipers convinced a lot of people of a different ‘reality’ that was better, and more believable to some. So reality changed a bit for some, while for others, it stayed the same, while everyone else was lost to them. This is not right at all. Just because more people agree with it than any other does not mean it is right. How do we know it is real? The answer: We can’t. That is the simple truth to our existence. We cannot determine what is real except by what enters our mind, and therefor reality is tainted. Sanity is not statistical (George Orwell, 1984). There is no way to determine reality for sure. The saying “the world has gone insane” is one-hundred percent true. By the same reasoning, the world has gone sane. Each and every person is sane. Depending, of course, on what perspective you view it. People have the tendency to reject anything that is different, which includes someone believing in something that people believe not to exist. I must ask once more: What happens when a particular piece of reality grows large enough that it can be considered reality, yet not quite everyone agrees with it? Enough so that neither side is powerful enough to consider the rest of them insane? That piece of reality gains a name that the world knows all too well. Religion. No one person can say for the rest whether a particular religion is truth or not. If one were to ever be proven, then anyone still believing in the rest would probably be considered insane. That is our reality. It is a sketchy one, continuously being rewritten by new beliefs that come from diverse minds. I personally envy the one who has his or her own reality. They might have the ability to change it themselves, depending on how it is set up. We can’t change ours. There are too many people participating in this one reality to change it. The only thing is to change the people so it isn’t so bad here. Sanity, my friends, depends on who believe it the most. Who can prove it. Who can convince the populace of it. Who know it. There lies only one more question in need of asking…
What do you believe?
