Excerpt About Universal Concept
So far today we have seen that as manifestation goes from the nonconceptual level to the conceptual, what first arises is what is called the realm of noetic forms, or universal concepts—knowable differentiations in reality. We can have differentiated perceptions without naming them, without separating one thing from another. If I am the nonconceptual perceiving the differentiated world, I won’t say, “This is a chair, this is an arm.” I just see the variations in differences without separating things out. At the next level we discriminate things out so we can deal with them functionally, and also communicate about them.
