Exploring the Social Imagination

How Important is Agreement Reality in the Social Imagination?

How is one able to conclude that anything is real? Perhaps, by mathematical, scientific or  even by philosophical discussion? Some have said and still say that which is real is only through the known experience of the senses. 

However, we can and do experience abstract concepts such as freedom, love and justice; though rather they are a 'state of mind' experiences than they are physical as in tangible sensory experiences; but nonetheless, a sensory experience of another kind and one than cannot be seen. 

If we view social reality as an information reality and we should because there isn't any other reality; we can then say that nothing comes into our 'social' information reality (living in our mind as the social imagination) unless there is an absolute source for it and agreement that it did enter/is experienced. The fact that we can agree on anything as information that entered in as a truth especially as an 'the' absolute truth is truly supernatural; existing outside of our social imagination and perhaps of another information reality of a higher entity in a higher dimension. 

In terms of agreement reality and the social imagination, what matters is what compels us to understand that which enters in... Yes, that is what matters most - what compels. Einstein said there is no such as nothing or 'no' thing.

Hence, things, understood as 'information', cannot come into our social reality (social imagination) unless there is a source for such things 'information' that allows true information to enter in and or delivers information and in that we agree that it did enter in. The fact that we can agree on anything as a truth especially an 'the' absolute truth is truly supernatural.

Man exists in the locus of his/her mind and in that there must be agreement reality orchestrated in his/her social imagination. There is no social reality in the social imagination without agreement in/of it. Let me say like this, we exist in agreement reality via the social imagination, wherein we find/have a medium for agreement.

Now, there a lot of groups/nations that agree on this or that as their truth. And, for each in their place of being in the social imagination experience a truth. Ones' truth is always a truth as long as there is agreement.  In fact, you cannot be human unless you experience truth through agreement reality in the social imagination at least on some level about something... I think therefore I am and the sun is a star! But, is any agreement reality built on an 'the' absolute truth?

Does it matter that all man/people agree on the same things or just some things and disagree on some things or everything? That's a good question. What matters is what compels them to agree and what they end up agreeing on. But, in agreement comes also the idea (or doubt) of whether or not that which was agreed upon was not just true in a place but whether or not it the absolute truth - true for all things in all time.

Soren Kierkegaard said that there is no absolute truth in the masses of mere men because real absolute truth exists only in the One created it. As with the game of telephone, who started the information chain holds the absolute truth of it and it weakens as it passing on down the line. 

For those who are committed to the absolute truth, they are often open receivers of it. And, though we can agree that man is a social imagination, a social composite of many, if there were no absolute source to begin with for his/her social imagination, there would be no real truth to his/her social reality. For there cannot be absolutely true information agreed on without an absolutely true source for it. Only the true source can reveal the truth of it. Only the Creator of true information can share true information as true.

Can there be false information and agreed upon false truths? Yes, it happens because man exists in agreement reality. he was designed to agree and has no reality without it. We live in a social information reality; one in which we must agree on the truth of it. Created from by an absolute source and created to agree on that. To exist, we must be in agreement. So, when in doubt entered in, we agreed anyway. We were compelled to agree and perhaps out of being compelled to agree not just on any information but the absolute truth of it, we agreed on something that was not.

Information reality is our reality and we are compelled to agree for that is our existence. To agree is the truth of who we are. Being so compelled allowed error/doubt to enter in and we were compelled to agree on something even false information. Agreeing to agree always causes problems. Just as it does in the game of telephone. It happened at the fall. Man doubted the truth and its true source and then in a fear of not being real had to agree so Eve agreed and Adam agreed with Eve and a false information was agreed upon. Its seems we have been looping ever since. The reboot is coming!

2 Corinthians 6:16-17 ~ "And what agreement has the temple of God with idols" [false gods/false information]? None! For we/"you are the temple of the living God". As God has said, “I will dwell in them and walk among them. I will be their/your God, And they/you shall be My people.” Therefore, “Come out from among them and be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch"/use/spread "what is unclean" 'information', "And I will receive you.”


  1. There has to be an absolute source of man's truth, the truth of his being. And, there is ~ Jesus Christ. He is the patch/the upgrade that we so desperately need in a fallen social imagination. He came to reconnect us with the absolute truth. For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that everyone who believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him.… The Light has come into the world, but men loved the darkness rather than the Light ~ John 3:16-19. Jesus is the absolute truth!

  3. Amen! Are you with me? Agree that Jesus Christ is Lord! "For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them"~ Matthew 18:20. The time of the second coming is drawing near!

  4. The only agreement reality there is... is in Jesus Christ! He is the Creator of all things seen and unseen. In Him, we live, move and have our being! Acts 17:28.

  5. If we consider that as God's creation our greatest desire is to always be in agreement with God then it could be overridden only by that desire to be in agreement. Eve was tempted by Satan, tricked by him in her own desire to be in agreement. Satan was suggesting...that God was hiding something from Adam and Eve when he said, "Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden’?” Here, Eve must agree... “You won’t die!” the serpent replied to the woman. “God knows that your eyes will be opened as soon as you eat it, and you will be like God, knowing both good and evil.” And, here she must agree again because of the phraseology of Satan's words - God knows! And, if God knows, then you must agree with Him, its programmed in. So, even God could know that would happen and He still had a plan to rescue His Creation.
    The Justice of God's Kingdom is that we agree with Him, and Him alone! Jesus Christ is our eternal upgrade, and security wall...

  6. You cannot have total agreement with many gods... there is only One True God, the Creator of heaven and earth, of all things seen and unseen. In Him, Jesus Christ, we agree and thus have our being.

  7. When we consider the traffic of information in quantum computing, which also requires agreement reality, we should understand that each quantum computer must be unto itself an island of perfect information in the sense that it agrees with the information it has from the beginning to end and never doubts it as real and true (or at least think that within its actual closed system) and it could never come into contact with information that is other than what it considers real and true. If it did, the flow of information traffic would be stopped ... dead in its tracks.
