Moments of Mentality & Materiality!
= Name-and-Form = Naming-and-Forming!
The mind is that, which knows the object!
The object is that, which is known!
These two processes always arise,
and cease together
Neither inside, within, nor apart from, outside these two is any observer
"person", "I", "Me",
or other assumed entity as a hidden variable, ever involved!
The mind is
formless and invisible. The object may be designated
or named 'material', 'physical', 'formed' and
'visible' or 'external' only,
and exactly to the extent, and in so far, as it is

They are thus the
basic, fundamental and primary pair on the bottom of
the dynamic ever-changing process of any being in any
existence of any reality...
What is called 'matter' is delimited, defined, characterized, conceptualized,
even named by mind! Therefore can matter never be
separated from mind, like if
tries to break the dual-ended stick in order
to separate the ends, then one always gets two sticks, still each with 2 ends!
Therefore one unambiguously always ends up with observing a pair-wise new
mentality and materiality! The basic founding, yet often unnoticed,
unspoken, and maybe even sometimes tenaciously denied assumption underlying
science that: The naked, passive, objective observation is possible!
"Matter can be observed and analyzed objectively,
fully independently of mind!"
is therefore an utterly false, futile and even somewhat childish
