The visible level of consciousness refers to immediate, visceral, affective, physical, and behavioral manifestations of consciousness. This is usually what we can see, feel, and taste. The logical dimension refers to the rational mechanisms through which we logically interpret the world. It manifests primarily in terms of our mechanisms for explaining how things work, including theory, concept, law, principle, and so forth. The mythical dimension of consciousness SI uses goes beyond the logical to encompass our deepest beliefs—such as myth, faith, spirituality, the unsaid, the unthought, and so forth—and includes all those symbolic and archetypal functions and processes that normally take place below the level of our conscious awareness.
With this change, expansions in our ability to listen to and recognize another consciousness as other are genuine. Although we may or may not recognize that difference internally, others with whom we interact will, and their responses to us will change. At the mythic level, the very nature of reality comes to be understood differently, with effects that are more far reaching and durable than can be immediately seen. Evidence of these changes can arise from within us, sometimes seeming to come to our rescue in a situation that would once have been much more difficult and sometimes bubbling up like an intimate gift from deep within.
