"Around here we take our phenomenology seriously." This phrase means something simple: trust what you notice, and trust yourself to be a responsible observer of your own experience. But trusting one's own experience can be an act of rebellion against reflexive modern cultural modes of rational inquiry built to hew experience into shapes appropriate for the realm of the sharp, clean, dry lines of the Western intellect. On the other side is a world wet, grimy, fuzzy, and wild with unclear boundaries--and quite possibly, reconnection with parts of our selves long forgotten.
Great thinking. I’m sure provocative for many and affirming to us eh, higher consciousness peeps. Regarding phenomenology, would be interested in your thoughts of “background emotions” - unconscious emotions and feelings, creating milieu and viscera, before I actually feel the feeling, neuroscience.
