External Perceivers

External perceivers are a common feature of schizophrenic perception. In my experience, they are usually a deity of some sort, though I suppose they wouldn’t have to be, some people experience aliens, or the cia as external perceivers.

There are multiple lines of thought that occur to me when engaging with external perceivers.

One of them is, “so this must b e how I view God, or Aphrodite, or Athena, or whatever/whomever it may be, on a subconscious level. That thought holds some interest, and has a lot of explanatory power, but I usually find it kind of dull.

It doesn’t say much, but simply shifts the nature of the experience. Instead of, “What is Aries trying to tell me?”, becomes “What is my subconscious trying to tell me through the guise of Aries?” and in some sense, there is not much difference, an external deity has simple become an external expression of the subconscious. Sometimes I reflect on the experience in this fashion.

The other line I take is to just engage it as it presents itself, embracing it on a subjective level as it is.

I can’t say it feels like being watched, though others might disagree, if it does, it feels more like being watched in the sense that a coach or teacher watches while you perform athletics or take a test. It’s there in the background, but doesn’t seem to interfere with the action.

But what can we gain in the modern world from external perceivers? I suppose on the one hand, the experience itself hasn’t changed much over thousands of years, but our modern stance has.

So one is left in this state of double think. That what I’m seeing is real and not real in the same way at the same time whereas in the past one might have been able to engage it without contradiction, as part of the perceptual landscape.

But that’s not necessarily a bad thing, it just means that the modern approach to such matters is different from the ancient. We can engage what we perceive as real, while at the same time seeing it as not real
