Hello Gene,

I would suggest that abstractional consciousness (thinking on a strictly 
subjective, non linear, non verbal plane of pure experience) is by definition 
inexpressible at this point in our development. In this objectified three 
dimensional reality, the recognition of "soul-speak" as I like to call it, 
requires a different sort of mental attunement and daily pacing. A world that 
demands outward focus leaves very little room for true inner development. I 
don't think that anyone who can think in the abstract, refuses to do so. The 
experience is just to powerful to ignore. I think it is more likely that 
there may be some who have not come to recognize the inner experience of 
intuitional subtlety when it appears in their life. I also think there are 
many more, who have unlearned the experience during their "busy" outward 
turned lives and therefore, no longer can. The full development of a 
functional Budhi-manas consciousness is still part of humanities future. 
There is still much to do about resolving our current karmic obligations 
before being entrusted with the power and the responsibility that enlightend 
consciousness brings.
