  • Indirect knowing of Divinity/God/Source.
  • Indirect knowing of reality.
  • Knowing mediated by consciousness.
  • A capacity of mind that apprehends the Infinite.
  • A capacity of mind that organizes the Infinite into dimensions, timelines, worlds, etc.
  • The perceptive capacity selects from among infinite possibilities within simultaneity and thus curates experience.
  • The perceptive capacity is intimately linked with the creative/projective capacity of higher Mind. Perceptual choices instruct the creative process, which then supplies the next iteration of perceptual options to choose from.
  • In as much as perception selects from the infinite possibilities available, it acts as a filter.
  • In as much as perception informs creation, it is creative.
  • In partial clarity, perception is distorted.
  • In partial clarity, perception is distorted by attachments, aversions, beliefs, concepts, expectations, etc.
  • Perception necessarily involves some degree of distortion.
  • In perfect clarity, there is only direct knowing, and there is no perception.
