~ Open Source Mysticism
A Fully Inclusive Consciousness Model
Common Expressions

Here are some proposed interpretations of everyday expressions and terms. These help  demonstrate the universality of the temporal aperture concept.  Every function falls under the umbrella of temporal aperture. The list can go on endlessly:

"collective subconscious" = all (so far) noncognized parts of your temporal aperture volume

"Become your brother's keeper", "Do unto others...", etc. = denotes inclusive temporal aperture

"Kill all nonbelievers" = exclusive temporal aperture example

"Leonardo da Vinci" = inclusive temporal aperture

"semper factotal" = inclusive temporal aperture (Latin - "always doing everything")

"no shirt, no shoes, no service" = temporal aperture excludes certain partially dressed persons

"handy person" = inclusive temporal aperture

"come one, come all" = illusory inclusive temporal aperture in a sales context

Maria in "The Sound of Music" has a colorfully inclusive temporal aperture:

"Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things

Cream colored ponies and crisp apple streudels
Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles
Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings
These are a few of my favorite things

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes
Silver white winters that melt into springs
These are a few of my favorite things"

And so on....

The proposed general principle is that a maximally inclusive, that is to say extensive, temporal aperture is preferable.  Our temporal aperture boundaries are set in many ways - social influences, physique, gender, genetic influences, tastes, desires, fears, etc.  Temporal aperture expansion involves doing battle with all of these forces, and that's why it was indicated on page 5 that such development is extremely challenging and stressful..
