Dear friend, we can add at least two considerations to the things you’ve
said. Simple considerations, so we don’t have to face the deep aspect of
the subject, which is the (stabilizing) construction of conscious bridges which
would make the psychical and emotional structure of the individual less “oscillating”.
We might consider the word itself: oscillation.
The first question might be: given by what and why? We might point out the most
generic causes: emotional oscillation between knowledge and imagination; emotional
oscillation given by the conflict between emotional and rational level; oscillation
between the masculine impulse (left cerebral lobe) and the feminine one (right
Oscillations decrease considerably in correspondence of a conscious sphere (conscience
of self) called egotistic barycenter, made of impersonal conscience
and abstract mind, not influenced by physical-animal attributes.
Here, in the first instance, the link between oscillation and emotiveness
appears. It is a stage of the psychical development certainly not very advanced.
Emotiveness is a mental construct derived from a conscience still forgetful
of self and, therefore, still strongly influenced by carnal physical senses
(and sensations), which tend to the natural satisfaction of the impulses of
the physical-animal sphere.
The epochal change of a personality happens through the “decision”
(esoterically called “the choice or crossroads”) which leads to
the re-orientation of relations of “subjection” between mind and
emotional status. It will happen when the individual conscience, in full autonomy,
will start relying more on superior intellect (see vertical orientation) than
on sensation of physical reason that many intellectuals have called, ironically,
the mind that lies.
At this point, other types of oscillations, of a vertical kind, will appear. They
are caused by the tension perceived between two different “points of view”:
the direction of the physical mind (see horizontal orientation) and the direction
towards which the egotistic will tends (impersonal conscience); their association
is the cause of the detachment at the lowest levels of the personal self.
The subject of psyche (physical mind) and Psychè
(mind of the soul) is fascinating and incredibly deep. It is and it has always
been subject of the study of great intellectuals, experimenters and initiates
and it can’t be dealt with randomly. At least, it shouldn’t be dealt
with only through opinions or, even worse, sensations. Otherwise (and I’m
not referring to your considerations, to which, indeed, I reply), the subject
would fall off into an exclusive chat (I like this, I think this), lacking of
true cognitive construction. It would be a conversation based rather on the
precariousness of a single opinion.
