I fear that my unity could fracture. Was Hume correct? Is my consciousness only a collection of phenomena received as one? Do I exist before I predicate? I think so. But on the other hand, existing is predication. The deeper question is this: Is the very nature of existence, is the very essence of existence, a unity of subject/predicate?
These questions, especially to me, are more than an academic exercise. On one level, they are the relishing of existence itself. They are not queries; they are memories. Deeper still, they lead me to the conclusion that I could take consciousness deeper, that there is a level of inner awareness that cues presence. I have worked on being present without, but can I become present within?
