I am presenting for your kind review, one article, but I ask that you do not ‘judge’ these articles ‘on their own’.
For my studies, entitled, ‘Consciousness Studies’, I hope, are not to be judged by one submission or one article, precisely because they are all tied in and connected with each other. I started this work in 1980 and I am still writing on these interlocking subjects which are all related in that I am seeking to find a definition of these inter-related entities: Reality-Consciousness-the ‘I’-the ‘Self’-Vision-Time-Mind.
In many ways, I am presenting for you, a small part/portion, of a painting that I have made. So, I hope you do not judge that ‘painting’ by the one chink I have thus far submitted to you.

Preliminary Definition On What The Reality Of The Mind Is In Relation To The Constituents Of The Mind (CoM).

This is our second chapter, in our Consciousness Studies.
We now present the some more of the basic Constituents of the Mind (CoM):
Event/s (E)
Sound/s (Sn)
Scenery (Sc)
Thought (t)
Odour (Od)
Memory (M)
Emotion/s (Em)
Nothingness (o)
We can now add the (+,-, o) Symbols on any of the above, and they represent the positive, negative and neutral. The (+,-,o) give the (CoM) flavours. Thus, with respect to Emotions, we can state (Em+) means a happy or positive emotion, (Em-) is a sad emotion, whilst (Em0) is a neutral, bland emotion.
Nothingness: is the mental state when the person is being awake and ‘vacant’, or thinking about nothing. (Review the ‘Study of Vision’ paper).
Next, we need to add the Awareness Factor (AF) (?+/?-): this is fundamentally crucial to the (CoM) because the (AF) ultimately defines the entire structure of the Mind, the ‘Self’, Consciousness of the person in question. Thus, the more the Observer (Ob) is being aware of any of the (CoM) the more (Ob = Com), and the less (Ob) is aware of any of the Constituents of the Mind, the greater the degree of nothingness will arise.
General Abstract Vision (gav) & Mental Abstract Vision (mav): This has been discussed in the ‘Vision’ paper. General Abstract Vision is what you see around you, while (mav) is whatever images you ‘see’ in your mind.
Vision can be (V+1): which what you see in general, without focusing or concentrating on the Observed Object.
Vision can be (Vo): which is when (Ob) is focusing on a particular point on the (OO). Same as the Focused Observed Point (FOP).
Vision of Nothingness (VoN): is when (Ob) is being vacant, thinking of nothing. Same as Nothingess (o).

We now can add further related points, with respect to the Mind:
(Ob) – the Observer.
(OO) – the Observed Object, egg. A flower.
(FOP) – Focused Observed Point, e.g. When (Ob) focuses on a particular point on the flower.
(Mt) – Mental Transaction.
(O) – Nothingness, e.g. When (Ob) is thinking of nothing, or is being vacant, or is blanking out.

Mental Plane (mp): is when (Ob) is completely influenced, affected by an event, emotion, or anything affective, so that the observer in question finds his entire emotional structure has changed as a reaction to the affecting event. Example, (Ob) sees an emotionally charged film and after the film feels completely charged with emotions as a consequence of seeing the film. We can say that Observer’s (mp1) has changed to (mp2) following the affecting event (Ev-1) of seeing the film in question.
Time Frame (TF): Every study of the Mind can only be done within the Mathematical Time Frame (MTF) and the Relative Time Frame (RTF). The difference between the two is that (MTF) is the measured time using clocks, whilst (RTF) is what the Observer ‘feels’ time felt to be for him.

Now, we can say that the definition of the Mind of a person in question is the sum total of mental interactions or transactions within the studied Time Frame (TF); or:

[x^(?+/-) { Ev + Sn + Sc + t + Od + M + o + Em } ]?tf?^.

Please note, that in the above, the ‘{}’ means that person (x) has in his mind all that is within the looped brackets.
Next, the above states that Observer (Ob), or (x), who has varying degrees of the Awareness Factor (?+/-), has in his mind the following Constituents of the Mind (CoM) and they are, so far:
Witnessing or being part of Events.
Hearing Sounds that can be music, to the rustling of leaves.
Seeing and experiencing the Scenery around him – it can dull (for example his room) or it can be exhilarating, such as being in a forest.
He will have Thoughts (t).
He will experience a variety of Odours.
He will experience a variety of Memories (M).
He will experience, at some point in his daily routine, moments when he is awake, but his mind is ‘vacant’, or he is thinking of nothing (o).
He will experience a variety of Emotions (Em).
Please note the following factors, in relation to our above statement:
We must note that for each of these constituents, we need to add their ‘flavours’ – thus, an Event can be beautiful (eg. a wedding) and so we can state that that would characterise the Event as being: ?(Ev?_1^(+1)). Here, the lower (1) signifies the particular nature of the event we are talking about, which in our case, is the wedding. The upper (+1) figure signifies that because it was a ‘happy’ wedding, it was a pleasant experience for our Observer. These flavours go for all the other constituents; for example, (?Em?_1^(-1)) implies that our Observer experiences an Emotion, whose particular nature is names/labelled by the lower number which is (1), and that this particular emotion he is experiencing is a sad one, and so we signify that by adding the (-1) in the upper part. Or, our Observer, may hear a Sound, ?(Sn?_1^o), and here we learn that this particular Sound that our Observer is a neutral sound, meaning it does not create in him either positive nor negative emotions – for example, the sound of someone gently closing a window.
Remember, all these Constituents of the (CoM) are existing, interacting, attracting each other and repulsing each other, all within a chosen Time Frame (TF). These constituents are not rigid, statue like entities that simply exist there with no action and reaction. In later chapters, I will discuss further a more precise way of looking at the structure of these Constituents – for here in our study, they are obviously being presented sequentially, whereas, in further chapters, we shall see, that it would much more accurate if we were to present them in a Matrix formation, whereby the individual constituents fluidly and easily interact and react with the existing other constituents within any Time Frame we choose to observe in the Mind of the person in question.
Note that the Awareness Factors defines, for the Observer, what he feels, experiences, notices in his mind, for the greater the Awareness in his mind, the more he will be conscious and aware of what is going in his mind and around him. Thus, this Awareness Factor is crucial to the final ‘reality’ of what our Observer will ultimately tell us about ‘his’ reality.
Further these interactions, between the Constituents of the Mind (CoM) may produce other new Constituents – for example, an odour may produce a new memory, which, in turn may make our Observer happy.
Thus, so far, we can say: the reality of the Mind of the person in question, (x), and only relative to the Observer in question, depending on the ever fluctuating (?+/?-) degrees, can be defined by seeing the sum total of the Constituents of the Mind (CoM) within the studied time frame (TF) and what they produce from their being attracted to each other and from being repelled from each other.
Thus, we can say for now, and only for, because this study, is far from being complete – for now, we can say that the definition and the reality of the Mind of our Observer, during the Time Frame we chose to look at, was precisely these constituents we have discussed above.
