The Voice You Hear Within
Oden 1 Jessica Oden Dr. Willis side of meat Comp II February 20th 2013 The Voice You Hear When You meditate Silently in that respect are many acts or art and literature that pack with one of the most intriguing and mysterious phenomenons in the world, the human look. same(p) death, and the content of the heavens, it is a secret that hatful not be unlocked, and perchance the most soulal and valuable secret. The brain-teaser lies in the uniqueness of the individual brain with specific dreams and ideas that green goddess not be copied or comparingd.This eonian inconsistency makes stunning the mind basically impossible. there could be rooms filled with charts, diagrams, studies, and experiments to due with the human mind, and probably are, but thither is no control group and therefore no definite answer can be reached. Even if an answer could be found, what is the question? The human mind is infinitely and simultaneously complex and simple, much like the poems of doubtin g Thomas lx (Thomas lux).In Luxs poem The Voice You Hear When You Read silently he attempts to corner and identify one aspect of the incessantly mysterious mind. That voice heard only in the mind. The voice that remembers ein truththing, that reflects truth or lack there of, and finally that explains the world to one individual only, forever. The conversation between the minds voice and minds eye is an intimate one that can not be overheard. Perception is the transfer of information from the senses to the brain, and that ever return internal voice is narrating the whole process.Everything seen, smelled, tasted, etc is recorded into the brain, and this information provides the basis for the intension of all(prenominal)thing perceived from that point on, Oden 2 so that the perception of the world changes invariably and in direct relation to how much exposure there is to in the raw and unfamiliar things. Therefore the voice of the mind is constantly growing and expanding and develop a character all of its own. This character of the mind is what Lux is harping on in his poem, by explaining that no voices can be the same.He explains that this indwelling monologuer has the ability to see situations in jaded way and therefore the mortal get out see them that way also. Chelsea Craig defined this phenomenon in a very accurate and descriptive manner This powerful and moving voice is enriched by my past, declares my present, and may even foretell what is to come. (Craig 3) She gave this comment after reading Luxs work and ignoring it for some time (Craig 3).When she revisited the poem, she found that it contained an inherent truth about herself and every opposite human (Craig 3). Where does this voice of the mind reside? It seems to be grow in the subconscious, which is the area of the brain that processes our perceptions and makes them real ideas that we can call upon and that sometime reveal themselves randomly to us in flashes and dreams. When these id eas cross over from the sub- to the consciene, there is a voice there to explain it all to the perceive.Lux refers to this dispel of the mind as a dark cathedral seeming to compare the human subconscious to a holy vessel of information that moldiness be valued and cared for, and so out of this cathedral comes write outledge of a world that is difficult to sympathise even still. Reading is on of the silk hat ways to stimulate the mind and feed your subconscious with the images and feelings revealed from the book. The feelings invoked my the writer, the images portrayed by the poet, are all decipher by a private, bias faultfinding voice inside the mind.This voice is very selective and controlling. It will educate the information provided and run it through many filters before opening it up to the rest of your mind, which is does with bias and judgment and opinion. This may seem unfair, but a person promptly controls what their subconscious observes by controlling how much Oden 3 of the world they are willing to be exposed to. The example that Lux gives in his poem to illustrate the differences in the mind from over person to the next.The barn to one person could be a symbol of discharge time from kids running around an empty field with an abandoned building, that brings feelings of admiration and intrigue from the children who saw it, to the parents of the children who see the barn as dangerous and ugly. The dreamers and seniors will have yet another idea of what a barn is. The rule Lux uses, a sensory constellation is lit explains how that voice takes in everything that is perceive by all the senses and makes since of them, like the figurative lighting of a light bulb above the head when an epiphany is reached or an idea is conceived (Lux).The run of the voice of the mind, though a figurative idea, is also important and directly related to the person who owns that voice. In the first break dance of the poem, Lux repeats the banter say in different forms, emphasizing with repetition that the mind can real hear this voice and that the tone of it reflects and illustrates the connotation of the language universe said (Lux). Each inner voice has its very own unique timbre, with its own unique idiomatic expression derived from the experiences and actions of the person who conceived it.The poet used a noun to explain this idea, but alluded to the effect of stronger words of a sentence such as the verb or the subject. To take this part of the equations deeper, consider that the subject and verb makes the sentence. So to expand, if just the word barn can taut so many different things to different people, look at the correct sentence. Such as, for example, She was taken into the barn. This is a very simple sentence with apathetic words, but the inner voice can interpret it as the actions of a hero or a villain.On the one hand, a farmer could be carrying a pregnant goat into the barn to be fiery while she gives birth, on the o ther a stranger could be carrying a young girl into the barn with evil intentions. None of this is given to the lector in the sentence and so this inner voice uses Oden 4 what it knows to system at the meaning of the sentence. The point of this poem is to uncover some of the mystery of the human mind, but seems to only illustrate that fact that it is infinitely mysterious. There is no way to hear another persons inner voice or understand the conceptions of another entirely.There are phrases such as I know how you feel, or I can relate that seem to criminate otherwise, however these phrases are generalizations, and in and of themselves subject to the connotation given them by the inner voice. Does the person really understand or are they being sarcastic? Do they really have a clue what the other person is feeling? No, it is impossible to completely put their thinking crownwork on and hear the voice that whispers to them, interpreting the world and everything in it, one by one fo r that person.Oden 51.Works Cited Lux, Thomas the Voice you hear when you read silently. ed.
