The Elephant In Every Room
Above: The Multisense Realism take on the Blind Men and The Puzzle of the Elephant. (Original art below borrowed from here).
In this version, the small elephants can see what the parts of the elephant actually are – their sense is empirically valid. They are not blind men who mistake the trunk for a snake, but they are so focused on what they see that they do not notice that each of them are part of the large, blind elephant.
The blind elephant is the totality/Absolute. Not a perfect omniscient deity, but a flawed singularity which sees indirectly through the smaller sighted elephants. Meanwhile, the interior of the Absolute reveals the elephant dreaming of fictional impressions…seeing not the public parts of the body from the outside, but seeing the totality of all of the experiences in a compressed and mythic form.
The mandala illustrates the continuity between the endophoric and exometric verses, the head and tail of Ouroboran monism.
