The story behind the names
In this short post, we share the story behind the names of the architects of this center.
Ti0 is a name and personality of choice. I came to choose this after letting go of the name and personality that was given to me by the world. After this letting go, I was left in a void space, and I realized that I can go by the cultural definition of enlightenment and “become nothing”, or I can choose something different. In this I found the secret choice — the middle choice. A personality of choice. A name of my choosing. I chose freedom — the freedom to be anything and nothing.
So who do I want to be?
Finding this middle choice was a gift, and I wanted to embrace this. Being in the middle represents balance — the letter T is my representation of balance. I want to be infinite — I represents the eternal mystery of consciousness and self. 0 — zero — wholeness — emptiness: 0 represents the paradox of life, it represents the ultimate liberation of choice. The choice “not to choose” the polarities of the paradox — the choice to be in the center of the paradox — and the freedom to choose and change choices between the polarities of the paradox.
When you have gone beyond all concepts of the mind, including the “scariest” of those including god, devil, life, death, chaos, and the worst of all – control and order… you are left with nothing — zero. At this point, you are free not to choose anything. And you are also free to choose something and return to nothing at any time — and keep going.
You are free to choose whether you want to feel whole or hole. You are free to choose if you want to fill this hole with a concept like god, or to feel the wholeness of being empty. And from this paradox of holeness and wholeness, emerged The Infinite zer0 — Ti0.
The Realm of Faceless Beings
No1 represents an association with The Realm of Faceless Beings. A collective of individuals who know and recognize themselves and others beyond the superficial realms of appearances and identity — we are No One — we are Not One, rather we are Many — we are We. We are beings who found ourselves in essence — what we describe as the subtlest layer of experiencing the self — beyond all identities. And in this knowing we have the freedom to take on any identity we choose — to be actors.
This is a way of experiencing consciousness that goes beyond the so-called spiritual paradigm of “being an observer”. It is a level of experiencing consciousness in which you are not permanently attached to the character, nor to any concept — and so you can fully attach to a character or concept knowing that when the time comes you can let it go. This does not mean that being an observer doesn’t have value — the value is in learning to simultaneously be in or switch between states such as witness, actor, director, animator, or a vehicle who allows another to act and experience life for a moment. This is what we call Comadism or Consciousness Nomadism. A fluid state of consciousness.
These are obviously comically paradoxical beings and it may be difficult to understand us — especially if you are only using your rational mind. But once you get the hang of it, you may never want to let go ??
