The Physical Unit is the physical body. The physical body consists of hardware and software. The hardware of the physical unit consists of the bones, muscles, blood vessels, and cells of the body. The software consists of the "autonomous" algorithmic programs (e.g., instincts) that keep the body operating, and provide instinctual guidance and defense, and the Bodily Ego, which provides basic mechanisms of thought and understanding.
The Physical Unit is a vessel designed specifically to allow [[Consciousness] to survive, thrive, experience, and create within physical creation.
The physical unit is a container for Consciousness. "The belief, the knowledge, and even the experience that our physical world of the senses is a mere illusion, a world of shadows, and that the three-dimensional tool we call our body serves only as a container or dwelling place for Something infinitely greater and more comprehensive than the body and which constitutes the matrix of the real life--this surely is the most powerful idea man [sic] has ever concieved.
The physical unit's prime directives are to survive and thrive, both of which require the Seven Essential Needs be met.
The phrase Physical Unit (PU) refers to the physical body, specifically as it functions as a container for Monadic Consciousness. The physical unit consists of the physical body itself and the mind that emerges as a consequence of the neurological and quantum operations that occurs inside the nervous system of the physical unit.
The Physical Unit refers to your physical body and all its various
- structures (e.g. brain, hippocampus, heart, skin, neurons, etc.),
- functions (e.g. Survival, Connection, and Expression) and
- energy flows
that create a living vehicle capable of containing Consciousness.
The PU may be conceptualized as a manifestation device, or a device designed to allow Consciousness to express within and manipulate the physical universe. As such, the physical unit was designed as a vehicle capable of expressing all Facets of Consciousness within the confines of the Physical Universe.
Development is the process of protecting, nurturing, and supporting the physical unit so it can contain high levels of Monadic Consciousness. Proper development requires satisfaction of the Seven Essential Needs
Ideally one wishes to manifest inside a fully developed, healthy, and fully functioning physical unit. Toxic Socialization and a violent and abusive system prevent proper development, disconnect, and damage the physical unit. Damage occurs to the PU through accidental or deliberate trauma, abuse, and neglect. Damage causes disconnection and lowers the CQ of the physical unit and leads Pathology from which the individual must heal.
