Yes, a stable realization of the Witness is a key feature of Audi-Mind (or Overmind in AQAL), but what does the Witness observe? The Throne of Witnessing (𝍅) is Yin to the Throne of the Mind (𝌼) — just notice the shift from Yang to Yin at the second mark. The Witness “negates” the Mind, but not the Meta-Mind, not Mentality itself, not Meaningfulness.
The Witness (𝍅) is the Yang to the Yin of The World (𝍆) — just notice the shift from Yang to Yin at the fourth mark.
Overmind begins with the Witness, with the “negation” or “fulfillment” of Mind in The Way. But the very next step is the realization of World Consciousness. Understanding that you have the Worlds on your shoulders, so to speak, all the Worlds within your ability to grasp mentally, emotionally, or spiritually. They all enact themselves through YOU. The burden is extraordinary to act not as an individual self seeking his/her/their own enlightenment or salvation, or a collective seeking its own equalization and justice, but as the Worlds themselves struggling at the Throne of the World, which is a Wartime Throne, grasping for survival in a potentially hostile World-environs.
Until your Identity has Wedded itself as a World among Worlds, you are not in the Audi-Mind, you are merely experiencing a state of Waking as a Witness to a more partial sense of identity. You are witnessing a few feet in front of you, or a few feet behind, or your neighborhood. You are not the World in itself, breathing and enacting and struggling for the Health of the Spiral of Wholeness.
Here is a test if you are living in the Audi-Mind. When you use Words (𝍆𝌃), are you using them such that the World itself, all who are listening in body or ether, in any language whatsoever, can hear you and recognize themselves in you? Do your Words resonate on the causal and subtle level as well as the gross? Or are they poisoned with cacophany, sarcasm, crudeness, vulgarity, and meanness of Babel, twisted and deformed sockpuppets of the ego and its shadowy minions?
Are you ready, really READY, for your words to CAUSE what they purport to say? If not, flee the Audi-Mind! You are not ready to Hear the causal conditions of your own utterances as a Creator of Worlds. To Hear, truly Hear, is to Here. You will do damage thinking you are there when you are not.
Words are not left behind in the move from subtle to causal realms. The Word (𝍆𝌃) is the deep heart of the Audi-Mind’s first tripartate phase of formation. The Word is the Yung to the Yang of Functioning (𝌐𝌃) and the Yin of Authority (𝌫𝌃). The Witness is not so deep, but it alone can activate the field in which the Word reverberates in its beauty and life-giving power.
If you still think the Witness is all there is to the causal realm of the Audi-Mind, please, you have had Wool pulled over your eyes by misleading True Self teachers who didn’t know any better. You have seen but a tenth of the Eighth Station. Remove the Wool, and encounter the Audi-Mind.
