The Stream of Consciousness

When the subject of consciousness is approach and this discussion continues on to include the concept of knowledge on through to wisdom, there are many terms and an absolute upon which comprehension requires.

There are many terms which are a part of this discussion. These terms include:

observation and experience

data which is perceived and catalogued

information which relates to organization and arrangement of the data. Once the term organization is approached there is the inclusion of value judgments. These value judgments do not necessarily include correct judgments, determinations that are right in contrast to wrong, good as apposed to bad, or fall into logical arrangements that properly deal with the laws of logic.

value: When one sets value upon something, they to set in a row, that is, arrange, put in order that item. There is a determination as to its place, order, importance, or usefulness.

There are various perspectives to this. Value may be ascertained by random selection without a logical basis. It may be ascertained in a subjective manner but not according to eternal standards, but by standards which have limited temporal selfish foundations.

A value may be determined according to the purpose and laws which come from the foreknowledge and omniscience of The Eternal God and Creator.

When the value is ascertained apart from the Creator God, it does not rise to or contribute to the standard of knowledge. This is according to definition as given in Proverbs 1:7

knowledge and its beginning is defined by the Bible in Proverbs 1:7. This definition places specific moral organization and restraints to the terminology. It is at this point that value is correctly assessable, right is assigned, and logic is applied according to truth.

right: In morals and religion, just; equitable; accordant to the standard of truth and justice or the will of God. That alone is right in the sight of God, which is consonant to his will or law; this being the only perfect standard of truth and justice. In social and political affairs, that is right which is consonant to the laws and customs of a country, provided these laws and customs are not repugnant to the laws of God.

Even the terms fit, suitable, proper, becoming, and such like must still fall into the constraints of that which pleases God.

good: Having moral qualities best adapted to its design and use, or the qualities which God's law requires.

truth: stability; figuratively certainty, truth, trustworthiness

to render (or be) firm or faithful, to trust or believe, to be permanent or quiet; morally to be true or certain;

Certainty can only be possible if there be one who can provide absolute guarantee of veracity. Only an omnipotent, eternal unchanging God can provide such stablility.

logic: The purpose of logic is to direct the intellectual powers in the investigation of truth, and in the communication of it to others. The origin of logic of necessity must come from God based upon His Onmiscience, orderliness, and transmitting these characteristics to man who is made in the image of God. Random origins cannot account for logic or any kind of order.

Once knowledge is entered into, then understanding becomes available.

Wisdom is taking knowledge and understanding and making proper application and controlling conduct in a manner whereby it is in conformity with the law of God, the will of God and the character of God. It is directly applicable to the purpose of the Creator God and the creation He initiated and holds in place.
