RELIGIOUS PARADOX
Religion and Spirituality
Religion that is based on ideal, that is non-physical, independent and separate from the physical world, and wherein what is Transcendent can only be manifested as intellectual concepts, means that the individual lives in a material world and thus this life is materialist. Spirituality wherein the Transcendent is considered as any or every aspect of the natural physical world lives in a Spiritual world and thus is more likely to live a Spiritual life. {Dissertation Religious Paradox}

REPLICA THEORY
Determination
Theory that the Non-physical of Spiritual Plane is a replica of the physical world or Positive Dimension. The Replica Theory means that the non-physical universe or Spiritual Plane is akin to the non-human, and human mind and memory or Negative Dimension. The purpose of this replica is primarily conceived as a means of positing the concept of a Will, where a non-mechanical method of choice and decision making is possible, in contrast to the mechanistic cause and affect of the inanimate physical universe. The replica as non-physical, would enable alterations to be made in this double or comparative state, that in some manner could be applied as Will to the physical world. {Dissertations: Memory Self and Replica Theory}

SECULARISM
Religion and Spirituality
The Secular as distinct from Religion and Spirituality relies on that which is and can be known. What is known is what is perceptible to the human sensory apparatus, is predictable and can be relied on. The emphasis of Secularism is on volitional freedom. Because much of volitional options requires the use of pre-existent states to promote volitional change, as technology produces volitional ability and requires material and labor for its construction, the Secular perspective requires much if not all of the physical world to be classified as material resource. Opposed to this, Spirituality is defined as emphasizing an integrity of pre-existent states and thus stresses Prohibitions.

SEMIOTIC LANGUAGE
Olamic Value
The context of events and circumstance interpreted as symbols, representing specific attributes, such as cloud formations, names or numbers which identify and define the language of Spiritual Manifestations, which is unique to the individual. {Dissertation Semiotic Language

SINGULAR SELF
Tandem w/ Symbolic Self
The Progressive Material Volitional of the Mundane Consciousness. Wherein the consequence of the individual is limited to materiality, as assessed by the possession of the power contained in phyiscal assetss possessed. Definitive identity that is singular, indiviudal, mundane, wherein the individual may define themselves in terms of family history, race, sex, profession, education, possessions, power, worth and consequence. {Dissertation Symbolic Identity}

SOUL
The soul could be said to be some aspect of the self, that would transcend the single material this-world life and Consciousness, as a continuation after death. This means that the soul would be something other, or more than what it is the manifested human existence of a present material state of personality and personification. This soul, if as a continuation of living existence, would possess a perspective and context of Consciousness that is perhaps distinct, larger, expanded or transcended from its earth bound state.

SPIRITUALITY
Spirituality
Spirituality can be defined as the affect on the character of the individual, that derives from the making of decisions that involve Consequence. The character is defined by the priorities, or the type of Consequence that defines what the individual will choose or decide in a given circumstance. The nature of the Spirituality of the individual is based on the individual's definition of Consequence. To the degree that the individual is limited to singular, narrow, personal, selfish or elitist concerns, is to the degree that this person is materialist or non-spiritual. To the degree that the individual has an expanded or transcending sense of Consequence, as larger awareness that expands from the individual to family, community, world, environment and universe, is to the degree the person may be Spiritual. Spirituality is the appreciation of the ramifications of any consequential circumstance, and the ability to identify and have Compassion for the elements of that condition no mater what the genus.

SPIRITUAL PLAIN

SPIRITUAL TERRAIN
Through the reading of Symbolic Reality one may ascertain what is said to be a Spiritual Terrain. Like the material worldly terrain the spiritual terrain is said to in some manner possesses characteristics reflective of the natural world. This unseen terrain may affect the physical world as perceived by the sensory system. Thus the physical may be symbolic of the unseen. One may recognize a spiritual terrain by the characteristics of a physical place. Different thoughts may be encouraged in different terrain. Different types of events may take place in different terrains. One may be able to recognize where one is in terms of spiritual terrain where the physical world is symbolic of it. One may be able to recognize the character of a place by physical appearance and by feeling. A specific place may reflect where spirits reside and what they might experience. Spiritual Terrain may be reflected in a practice such as Geomancy where spiritual topography is envisioned instead of magnetic lines of energy.

SYMBOLIC CONSCIOUSNESS
Conservative Spiritual Ethical IdentityTandem w/ Mundane Consciousness
Interpretive Context of the perspective of Conservative Spirituality wherein all natural existence is considered to possess inherent value and consequence. Symbolic Consciousness ascribes to circumstance and events specific meaning that is apropos to context created by the individual or society in general, such as Greek Mythology. Identity and definition may take the form Olamic Value wherein any given event or entity can assume symbolic identity, form, definition and significance. Reality as what happens may be assumed to communicate in symbolic form termed Semiotic Language. {Dissertation Consciousness & Intellect}

SYMBOLIC CONTEXT
Semiotic Language
Specific Interpretive Context from which reality is interpreted. Interpretation of reality that represent symbols for unseen spirit world and Semiotic Language. Context of interpretation as Fixed or Open Context.

SYMBOLIC LOGIC
Logic Tandem w/ Literal Logic
The creation, adoption or use of Interpretive Context, based on the assumption that phenonemon, circumstance or events is a vehicle of intentional and intellegent communication, via the means of symbols or signs termed Semiotic Language, originating from some spiritual source. Or it is the consideration that what is interpreted as signs or symbols would have happened anyway, but may have gone unnoticed or would not have had a context for interpretation, without the creation of the Interpretive Context of Symbolic Logic. (Dissertations Conserative and Symbolic Logic}

SYMBOLIC REALITY
The physical world is considered to have two manifestations: one as mundane and one as spiritual. Where the present physical world is interpreted to symbolize or represent a separate spiritual world that is interdependent and inter-existent with the material world. Elements of the physical world are interpreted as symbolizing elements of a usually, but not always unseen, unheard, smelled or tasted plane, but which may normally be felt. The spiritual plane is said to be able to influence events on the material level of which these events represent symboliccontent for these spiritual manifestations.

SYMBOLIC SELF
Tandem w/ Singular Self
The individual that transcends the Singular Self of the Mundane Consciousness to a Consciousness that encompasses the concerns and realities of other persons, animals and things. The individual in one's own thinking, speaking and acting may represent symbolically and assume the characterizations of others. {Dissertation Symbolic Identity}

TRANSCENDENT
Term created as a bridge between Religion Materialism and Conservative Spirituality, which represents God as an abstraction or not apparent to the physical senses and a more empirical Spirit that is.

WILL
Replica Theory
The ability of choice and making decisions, independent of the automatic and mechanical physical world or Positive Dimension. The Will is described as the ability to make alterations on a non-physical level, as a comparative state or non-physical replica, and to translate those alterations into the physical world, such that the Will can make changes manifest. This Will may be viewed as the individual and personal Will of the Memory Self, or Will that has higher origins such as originating from the Astral or Causal Planes.
