AUTHOR’S NOTE: In the WAVE DOMAIN, there are MALE and FEMALE conjugates (otherwise known as REAL and IMAGINARY conjugates). WESTERN CULTURE’S Language Architecture is equivalent to a reduction to the MALE component on its own, dropping out the FEMALE CONJUGATE which seems to linger on in the shadows and HAUNT the conversation (The DEA ABSCONDITA). WESTERN CULTURE Language Architecture can be seen as a reduction FROM SPHERICAL SPACE which consists of both MALE and FEMALE CONJUGATES, to the MALE-CONJUGATE ONLY which corresponds to Euclidian FLATSPACE representation, a reduction which reduces the WESTERN CULTURE LANGUAGE representation to a MALE-ASSERTIVE ONLY REPRESENTATION. For example, the talk of the AVALANCHE will cover the descending pile of rocks but without mention of the HOLE in the landscape which is the FEMALE CONJUGATE in the complete scenario wherein the MALE and FEMALE conjugates together constitute TRANSFORMATION. Being that WESTERN CULTURE rhetoric is ONE-SIDED MALE ASSERTIVE as in talk of GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT and PRODUCTION, there is no acknowledgment of the FEMALE HOLE IN THE LANDSCAPE which is CONJUGATE TO THE AVALANCHE., … however, as conversation continues in terms of GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT and PRODUCTION, … it is HAUNTED, by the DEA ABSCONDITA, the ‘something’ that has ‘gone missing’ in our talk of GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT and PRODUCTION, and IF IT COULD SPEAK, would speak of the HOLES from where materials have been given up for GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT and PRODUCTION. An AWARENESS of the CONJUGATE RESTORES the understanding that REALITY is NOT ‘GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT and PRODUCTION’, … but ‘TRANSFORMATION’. Without OVERTLY ACKNOWLEDGING the DEA ABSCONDITA, WESTERN CULTURE SUBSTITUTE REALITY CONSTRUCTIONS will focus on GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT PRODUCTION as if these were the complete REALITY, … but the discussion space will be HAUNTED by the DEA ABSCONDITA, the beautiful ghost of the virgin landscape that is no longer with us as we party on in celebration of GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT and PRODUCTION full stop.
BUT IN VIEW OF WHAT HAS JUST BEEN SAID, GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT and PRODUCTION … ARE NOT “SENSE-EXPERIENCE-REAL”, they are like the mathematical ‘derivatives’ that have become separate FRAGMENTS split off from the motherland of the transforming relational continuum, the DEA ABSCONDITA, which requires ‘her’ RE-INTEGRATION to recover full meaning. In other words, the meaning of the LOCAL and EXPLICIT is NOT STAND-ALONE MEANING, but, like the mathematical derivative, has deeper meaning that requires RE-INTEGRATION with the missing LANDSCAPE, the FEMALE CONJUGATE that has become the DEA ABSCONDITA that is NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT. The CONSTRUCTION of SUBSTITUTE REALITIES based solely on the LOCAL and EXPLICIT as in WESTERN CULTURE LANGUAGE representation is the SOURCE of FRAGMENTATION, NOT ONLY in the INTELLECTUALLY CONSTRUCTED ‘REALITY’, but also in the INTELLECTUALIZING MIND (which imagines itself to be a FRAGMENT within that FRAGMENT). Care must therefore be taken to avoid the pitfall where the LOCAL and EXPLICIT abstractions of GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT and PRODUCTION HIJACK the SENSE-EXPERIENCE REALITY of inclusion in the all-including NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT TRANSFORMING RELATIONAL CONTINUUM.
The REPRESENTATIONAL TOOL of the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR that imputes the POWER of LOCAL AUTHORING of ACTIONS AND DEVELOPMENT to a NAMING-instantiated “THING-IN-ITSELF” HAS the MAKINGS of SCHIZOPHRENIA. The LOCAL ‘BREAKER’ in the NONLOCAL OCEAN SWELL is only ‘LOCAL and EXPLICIT’ by APPEARANCE but language offers us the choice of BINARY LOGIC to concretize that ILLUSION where the alternative of QUANTUM LOGIC is naturally warranted; i.e. the BREAKER and the SWELL are NOT TWO but ONE just as FIGURE and GROUND in the WAVE-FIELD IS NOT TWO but ONE. When the BREAKING WAVE within the LONG OCEAN SWELL declares itself LOCAL and EXPLICIT, we have FRAGMENTATION that brings with it a HOMELESSNESS problem that we resolve by INVENTING an ABSOLUTE EMPTY and INFINITE SPACE, liberating the MALE ASSERTIVE FIGURE of the BREAKING WAVE for our language-based communications convenience and BANISHING the NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT FEMALE CONJUGATE in the process The BREAKER can now be spoken of as it were the LOCAL AUTHOR of its own actions and development.
The APPEARANCE of the INDEPENDENT BEING of the BREAKER with its own POWER of AUTHORING ACTIONS and DEVELOPMENT is PSYCHOLOGICALLY CONVINCING, but not nearly so CONVINCING as when we construct a LANGUAGE-BASED SUBSTITUTE REALITY where we use NAMING and GRAMMAR to conjure up something that is unequivocally the LOCAL and EXPLICIT AUTHOR of ACTIONS and DEVELOPMENT. The number of FRAGMENTS we can create for service in our SUBSTITUTE REALITY constructions, and may include numerous versions of ourself, as Father, Brother, Lover Manager is unlimited. While it is easier to understand reality in terms of the ONE ALL-INCLUDING TRANSFORMING RELATIONAL CONTINUUM, WHILE OUR SENSE-EXPERIENCE MAKES USE of the NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT, we WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS have designed our LANGUAGE to construct REPRESENTATIONS that are LOCAL and EXPLICIT.and this is where the FRAGMENTATION is coming in, along with the exposure to SCHIZOPHRENIA. While we can cover GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT and PRODUCTION with our one-sided MALE ASSERTIVE REALITY FRAGMENTING SCHEME, the FEMALE CONJUGATE (DEA ABSCONDITA) continues to HAUNT OUR UNDERSTANDING. Since that problem is coming from the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING AND GRAMMAR FRAGMENTATION, it does not impact INDIGENOUS ABORIGINALS who employ relational language rather than LOCAL AUTHORING based language which is why SCHIZOPHRENIA is an almost exclusively WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENT PROBLEM. Bohm’s remedy is to avoid getting hung up on our WESTERN CULTURE SCHIZOPHRENIA BREWING LANGUAGE but tot short circuit understanding by going directly to CHOICELESS AWARENESS. The learning of a FLOW-BASED LANGUAGE is a hypothetical alternative but there is the issue of having to put new wheels on the car while you are driving it.
Meanwhile, it is useful to keep in mind that the NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT (relational) is in a natural primacy over the FRAGMENTARY LOCAL and EXPLICIT.
* * *
Bohm claims that we WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS are becoming SCHIZOPHRENIC. This shows up every time we label someone a TERRORIST. This finger-pointing is denial that dissonance is a relational thing, since our use of language, and the word ‘terrorist’ indicates a NON-RELATIONAL LOCAL AUTHORING of action that is BINARY LOGIC based.
This REDUCTION of REALITY to a simplified SUBSTITUTE REALITY by way of BINARY LOGIC is characteristic of WESTERN CULTURE LANGUAGE constructions and is the root of FRAGMENTATION.
FRAGMENTATION is ABSTRACTION that leads to SCHIZOPHRENIA as we pretend to SPLIT OURSELVES OFF from the matrix of relations as comes with inclusion in the all-including transforming relational continuum.
As Nietzsche points out, FRAGMENTATION is achieved with the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR which notionally recasts relational forms in the flow as LOCAL AUTHORS of actions and developments.
Using the NAME-LABEL ‘TERRORIST’ escalates the sense of SEPARATION from ‘REBEL’ which implies CHANGE-AGENT “WITHIN” the relational social collective, to an entirely SEPARATE and INDEPENDENT ATTACKER implying a BINARY LOGIC (EITHER IS OR IS NOT) DEFINING, preparing the psyche for the remedial action of ELIMINATION rather than RESTORING BALANCE in the case of relational DISSONANCE or REBELLION as associated with a REFORMER who is nevertheless a BROTHER within the SOCIAL COLLECTIVE.
There is no MEASURE of VIOLENCE of action that specifies the escalation from REBEL to TERRORIST since it is a shift in the use of LOGIC from QUANTUM LOGIC which is relational as in BALANCE and IMBALANCE, to BINARY LOGIC which is ontological as in EITHER IS OR IS NOT.
OVERVIEW: Our WESTERN CULTURE is unique in its INSISTENCE on reducing reality which is naturally and inherently NONLOCAL AND IMPLICIT (relational and fluid) to the LOCAL and EXPLICIT. This has required the development of our WESTERN CULTURE “Common Average European” language architecture (Whorf’s classification) which lets us serve up LOCAL and EXPLICIT representations of that which is inherently NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT. That is, our CAE languages allow us to construct SUBSTITUTE REALITIES featuring the LOCAL and EXPLICIT which Nietzsche has shown are produced by the DOUBLE ERROR combination of NAMING and GRAMMAR. While this language achieves its archotectural design purpose of serving up REPRESENTATIONS that are LOCAL and EXPLICIT, because this reduces REALITY to a SUBSTITUTE REALITY that is based on LOCAL FRAGMENTS, notionally with their own powers of AUTHORING actions such as GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT and PRODUCTION, the REAL SENSE-EXPERIENCE-REALITY of our inclusion in TRANSFORMATION becomes hidden from our intellectualizing psyche as we immerse ourselves, PSYCHOLOGICALLY, in a SUBSTITUTE REALITY that appears LOCAL and EXPLICIT.
This SUBSTITUTE REALITY, because it has reduced fluid reality to the LOCAL AND EXPLICIT, has had to reduce those most basic aspects of sense experience reality, “BALANCE” and “IMBALANCE” to the BINARY LOGIC ABSTRACTIONS of “EITHER” is “OR” is not. Balance cannot ‘live’ within the abstract world of BINARY LOGIC wherein something “EITHER IS OR IS NOT” since BALANCE lives in the RELATIONAL SPACE (i.e. in the transforming relational cotinuum). Our WESTERN CULTURE UNDERSTANDING OF REALITY, because we have opted for language that captures the LOCAL and EXPLICIT, has had to LET GO of its capability of forming representations wherein BALANCE plays a foundational role. For example, REBALANCING AGENTS such as the classic ROBIN HOOD and JEAN VALJEAN must be reduced, in language that only supports the LOCAL and EXPLICIT, to simple PATHOGENS, since BALANCE is purely relational and BEYOND REPRESENTATION in the LOCAL and EXPLICIT. Meanwhile, BALANCE is the very essence of WAVE-FIELD reality.
The key insight in these notes is that … “OUR COMPULSION TO SERVE UP A LOCAL AND EXPLICIT REPRESENTATION OF REALITY FORCES US TO LET GO OF AND “DROP OUT” THE FOUNDATIONAL ROLE OF ‘BALANCE’ AND ‘IMBALANCE’ IN OUR REALITY CONSTRUCTIONS. In other words, if we want to express reality in terms of the LOCAL and EXPLICIT, we cannot at the same time incorporate BALANCE and IMBALANCE. For example, if we want to be able to use language to represent the TOWN that is GROWING, since this is a LOCAL and EXPLICIT REPRESENTATION (as if in ABSOLUTE EMPTY and INFINITE SPACE), we have to LET GO of any ambitions we might have had to capture a representation of BALANCE or IMBALANCE since we LOSE that capability once we move into the realm of the LOCAL and EXPLICIT. This loss of the language based ability to capture BALANCE and IMBALANCE leaves us with a very FLAT mode of expression (as in FLAT EUCLIDIAN SPACE) and this FLATNESs derives from the reduction to the LOCAL and EXPLICIT which comes at the PRICE of the EXCLUSION of BALANCE and IMBALANCE.
The SENSE of BALANCE and IMBALANCE is strong in us when we experience inclusion in circumstances such as where children are starving from lack of food while nearby others are basking in abundance. BALANCE and IMBALANCE as may be sensed in such situations are NONLOCAL and RELATIONAL No matter how much detail we are able to put into the LOCAL and EXPLICIT, this does not informs us on BALANCE and IMBALANCE. By the same token, no amount of information on GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT and PRODUCTION can inform us on TRANSFORMATION since TRANSFORMATION is the INTERPLAY of BALANCE and IMBALANCE..
If you read this, I think you will BE ABLE TO SEE the UNEXPECTED understanding that explains why we WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS are so addicted to BINARY LOGIC when QUANTUM LOGIC, which is BALANCE based, clearly makes so much more sense (reconciles far better with our sense-experience). The SURPRISE ANSWER (and It has been a surprise for me) is that BECAUSE WE WANT TO EXPRESS THINGS IN LOCAL, EXPLICIT terms, WE ARE FORCED TO GIVE UP, IN OUR WESTERN CULTURE LANGUAGE BASED REPRESENTATIONS, THE CONVEYANCE OF BALANCE AND IMBALANCE SINCE THEY ARE CONCEPTS WHICH LIE BEYOND THE CAPTURE CAPABILITY OF LOCAL AND EXPLICIT REPRESENTATIONS THE RESULT IS THAT WE WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS, BECAUSE OF OUR DESIRE FOR THE LOCAL AND EXPLICIT, HAVE REDUCED (effectively “DUMBED DOWN”) OUR LANGUAGE TO THE POINT THAT WE DROP OUT THE CAPABILITY FOR CAPTURING BALANCE AND IMBALANCE. THIS “DROP OUT” of BALANCE and IMBALANCE of QUANTUM LOGIC TO GIVE WAY TO THE SIMPLE “EITHER/OR” OF BINARY LOGIC IS WHAT ‘SHOWS UP’ IN THE STORIES OF ROBIN HOOD AND JEAN VALJEAN.
The following is an INTRODUCTION to a RESEARCH effort in progress, on this and related phenomena.
* * *
NOTE: The reduction of representations of reality to the LOCAL and EXPLICIT is a reduction to ABSOLUTE, EMPTY AND INFINITE EUCLIDEAN SPACE which is incapable of representing BALANCE and IMBALANCE, the latter requiring NON-EUCLIDEAN CURVED SPACE.
WHAT AM I RESEARCHING? — I am researching what Friedrich Nietzsche and David Bohm (among others) discovered was an inbuilt tendency in our WESTERN CULTURE and LANGUAGE for FRAGMENTATION, which is something that I intuited from my teenage years. One of the tip-offs came from school and the exercise of Résumé writing. It made no sense to me to try to split myself out of the interdependent relational maze and make claims about MY AUTHORING of this and that achievement. I found that to be EGO based BULLSHIT.
I wasn’t thinking, at the time, of how FRAGMENTATIVE that such popular WESTERN CULTURE ‘make-believe’ was, but later picked up on that in the writings of Bohm and Nietzsche among others. Nietzsche, for me, put his finger right on the source of the problem by pointing out the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR as creates the notion of a LOCAL AUTHOR of actions and developments. This DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR is THE VERY FOUNDATION of WESTERN CULTURE REWARDS and PUNISHMENTS and is also the basis of the PATHOGEN concept in WESTERN CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM and in WESTERN MEDICINE’s ANTI-PATHOGEN approach.
I also explored the thinking of R. D. LAING (The Divided Self) and his closely aligned Anthropologist Jules Henry, who wrote ‘CULTURE AGAINST MAN’ which reinforced the view of Bohm and Nietzsche that we WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS were using language that was reducing the FLOWING nature of our sense-experience reality to a SUBSTITUTE REALITY based on NAMING-INSTANTIATED notional LOCAL THINGS-IN-THEMSELVES with GRAMMAR-given notional POWERS OF AUTHORING actions and developments. This allowed to use language to construct a SUBSTITUTE REALITY which portrayed reality in the DOUBLE ERROR based terms of LOCAL THINGS with their own powers of AUTHORING actions and developments such as ‘the TOWN’, which, instead of being understood as a ‘TOWNING’ in the TRANSFORMING LANDSCAPE’ as affirmed by our sense experience, instead became, thanks to our language architecture, a notional LOCAL TOWN THING-IN-ITSELF notionally with its own powers of AUTHORING growth and development, that ‘lived in’ an EMPTY SPACE OF INFINITE EXTENT. The EMPTY SPACE ABSTRACTION cleared the way for thinking in terms that the TOWN or any other NAMING instantiated thing-in-itself could be seen as the full and sole AUTHOR of its own ‘GROWTH’, ‘DEVELOPMENT’ and ‘PRODUCTION’.
In other words, our WESTERN CULTURE LANGUAGE was architected to construct a stand-alone, MALE-ASSERTIVE SUBSTITUTE REALITY that was what we had popularized as a device for representing ‘reality’ that we could share with this language scheme. Note that WE HAD TO SACRIFICE our sense experience of inclusion in an all-including TRANSFORMING space in using this language based construction of a SUBSTITUTE REALITY populated by notional LOCAL THINGS-IN-THEMSELVES, notionally with ‘their own powers’ of AUTHORING, GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT and PRODUCTION as if this were going on within an ABSOLUTE EMPTY SPACE OF INFINITE EXTENT. The abstract of the empty containing space was a necessary abstraction to set up the impression of the NAMING instantiated objects, as having their own LOCAL powers of AUTHORING GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT and PRODUCTION, as ‘independent persons’ or ‘independent nations’ or ‘independent businesses’ or ‘independent organizations’ whatever LOCAL AUTHORS we wanted to create with the (as Nietzche pointed out) “DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR’.
In this manner, we WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS contrive with language and grammar, a SUBSTITUTE REALITY that can be seen as something LOCAL and EXPLICIT and without dependency on the TRANSFORMING RELATIONAL CONTINUUM, … AND THIS IS WHAT WE ARE CONTINUING TO DO, HERE IN 2021.
While this LOCAL and EXPLICIT language-and-grammar based SUBSTITUTE REALITY ‘works’ as a means of those who are employing it, to share CARTOONS of reality; i.e. constructions of this SUBSTITUTE REALITY, for sharing conceptualizations that facilitate putting the users of this ‘SUBSTITUTE REALITY’ tool, ‘on the same page’. For example, where Modern physics and indigenous aboriginal culture adherents would be understand our human situation to be that of humanings within the transforming relational continuum aka the WAVE-FIELD aka the Tao, we WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS with our SUBSTITUTE REALITY construction are seeing ourselves as INDEPENDENT BEINGS within an ABSOLUTE EMPTY AND INFINITE SPACE that is a GEOMETRICAL ABSTRACTION termed EUCLIDIAN SPACE.
So, WHAT AM I RESEARCHING? … What am researching is the implications on our psyche and on our social relations of our (we WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS) having employed this ABSTRACT SUBSTITUTE REALITY as our OPERATIVE REALITY.
I am writing to you as you are one of the most influential persons in the world today, and I have the sense that you are honest and fully committed to ‘doing the right thing’, in so far as we can determine ‘what that is’, to support global well-being.
My research into basic issues suggests that we have a problem, impacting the world as a whole, which I see as one interdependent world, as it is understood in Modern physics and also in the traditional understanding of indigenous aboriginals, Taoists/Buddhists and Advaita Vedanta adherents, much as expressed by the philosophers Friedrich Nietzsche and David Bohm, both of whom became aware of the problem of FRAGMENTATION in our WESTERN CULTURE dominated global society.
Since FRAGMENTATION is sustained in the world today by, among other things, the DECLARATIONS OF INDEPENDENCE of the self-styled “INDEPENDENT” sovereign states, the U.S.A. being among the most powerful and influential in defining and supporting the current world order which, like a ‘house of cards’, persists because of solidarity across the global collection of nations who have all opted to support belief in the abstraction of LOCAL AUTHORING of actions, such as production and development, as originating from the self-declared as “independent” sovereign nation-states of the world.
While the human population of the world has embraced this notion, and while the WESTERN CULTURE supported belief is that humans are an independent and superior species in the world, contrary to be indigenous aboriginal (mitakuye oyasin) and Modern physics understanding (quantum logic) that ‘everything is interdependent’. The pervasive belief in INDEPENDENCE is behind the prevailing FRAGMENTATION of the world, a FRAGMENTATION that is first of all, MENTAL and given global support by NATION-STATE DECLARATIONS OF INDEPENDENCE to that we have a situation today which David Bohm has described as a collective SCHIZOPHRENIA, … a FRAGMENTING that begins with our WESTERN CULTURE “declarations of independence” not only at the NATION level but also at the INDIVIDUAL and ORGANIZATION levels.
The Cuckoo lays its eggs in another bird’s nest so that its nurturance is provided for without any effort on the part of its parents (those Cuckoos may be crazy but they are not stupid).
This metaphor is useful to the understanding of reality as also the difference between quantum physics and Newtonian physics. It concerns the difference between ratio (intellectual-reason) and balance (sense-intuition). Intellectually, I can tell you that the avalanche crashed down the mountainside and destroyed the village. That is a male-assertive dynamic, so far as my language-based representation has gone. This is what I am thinking about with respect to the Cuckoos egg metaphor, something is missing, … something that is hard to put into words like a whole complex of relations between CONTENT and CONTAINER (inhabitant and habitat). This is where we go from BINARY LOGIC to QUANTUM LOGIC as where I would share with you an account of the AVALANCHE, telling you its size in cubic metres and tons etc. and the thundering noise it makes as it crashes down the mountainside and destroys the village. So far, I have only shared with you the MALE-ASSERTIVE, but there is also the CONJUGATE FEMALE ACCOMMODATIVE; i.e. a HOLE was opening up in the mountainside conjugate to the great pile of rocks we typically think of and ‘point to’ as “THE AVALANCHE’. Together, the MALE ASSERTIVE PILE OF ROCKS and the unmentioned HOLE in the mountainside are CONJUGATES that point to TRANSFORMATION, which is the ACTUAL PHENOMENON.
TRANSFORMATION is too difficult to capture in language because it is NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT (relational). It is part of the Tao, the overall world dynamic and as Lao Tzu points out, ‘The Tao that can be told is not the true Tao’. So, NOT ALL PEOPLE, but we WESTERN CULTURE PEOPLE have architected LANGUAGE that reduces REALITY to something simpler and more readily expressible like the reduction to the MALE ASSERTIVE CONJUGATE which is LOCAL and EXPLICIT and unlike the FEMALE CONJUGATE which is NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT i.e. the OPENING HOLE aspect of the TRANSFORMING LANDSCAPE.
So, when we speak in terms of; … ‘the AVALANCHE came crashing down the mountainside, … we are constructing a SUBSTITUTE REALITY where we have reduced the reality of the TRANSFORMING LANDSCAPE to something LOCAL and EXPLICIT which is NOT REAL but which is CONVENIENT as far as language-based representations made for simple and efficient sharing purposes are concerned.
WELL, GUESS WHAT, … the SIMPLIFIED SUBSTITUTE REALITY that we constructed is not just being used for simplified communications purposes,… it has come to be used, in WESTERN CULTURE, as our OPERATIVE REALITY. In other words, we could converse about the thousands of tons of rocks without mention of the conjugate hole, and if there was some valuable mineral in them, I could sell that pile of rocks to you and you could truck them away. This transaction sounds REAL enough but the reality is that THE LANDSCAPE IS TRANSFORMING, and of course that goes on all the time and we humans are not in control of it, although WE ARE INCLUDED PARTICIPANTS.
AUTHOR’S PREFACE: This essay reviews how we WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS are FRAGMENTED PSYCHOLOGICALLY and PHYSICALLY (through social disassociation) by LANGUAGE and the SUBSTITUTE REALITY that we CONSTRUCT with LANGUAGE. SOCIAL FRAGMENTATION arises where we put language-based SUBSTITUTE REALITY into an unnatural primacy over our INEFFABLE sense-experience of inclusion in the transforming relational continuum. The ‘hijacking’ of our sense-experience reality by our LANGUAGE based INTELLECTUAL SUBSTITUTE REALITY, as has been exposed by Bohm and Nietzsche, currently continues unabated, a source of rising FRAGMENTATION in our mainstream WESTERN CULTURE social dynamic.
While Bohm identified the LANGUAGE-based FRAGMENTATION into the LOCAL and EXPLICIT that is obscuring the IMPLICATE ORDER in NATURE, Nietzsche had pointed to the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR that gives BINARY LOGIC a foundational role that EXCLUDES QUANTUM LOGIC needed to convey the NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT. INSTALLING BINARY LOGIC in place of QUANTUM LOGIC…. BECAUSE IT FITS, …. is like laying a Cuckoo’s egg into the nest of a more complex bird ‘because it fits’, or putting a Volkswagen engine into a Porsche BECAUSE IT CAN FIT IN THERE, even though it is SIMPLER and lacks the LESS SIMPLE ATTRIBUTES. Thus we can use BINARY LOGIC to say that ‘the AVALANCHE crashed down the mountainside’ which is SIMPLE MALE ASSERTIVE BINARY that makes no mention of the OPENING OF THE HOLE in the ‘Mountainside’, excluding from consciousness the REALITY of TRANSFORMATION associated with the full understanding which includes the FEMALE CONJUGATE of the HOLE THAT IS OPENING CONJUGATE TO THE MALE ASSERTIVE PILE OF ROCKS that gets the NAME “AVALANCHE”. By accepting the MALE ASSERTIVE “AVALANCHE” as “REAL”, we kick the LESS SIMPLE TRANSFORMING LANDSCAPE (which includes FEMALE OPENING CONJUGATE and not just MALE ASSERTIVE CONJUGATE, … OUT OF SIGHT and thus OUT OF MIND.
USING SUCH LANGUAGE, that REDUCES TRANSFORMATION TO A ONE-SIDED MALE-ASSERTIVE SUBSTITUTE REALITY, BLINDS US (i.e. blinds our language-based representation of reality) to the REALITY OF TRANSFORMATION as affirmed by SENSE-EXPERIENCE, putting our EFFABLE INTELLECTUAL SUBSTITUTE REALITY “AT ODDS” with our INEFFABLE “SENSE-EXPERIENCE REALITY” which would be fine if we accepted the INTELLECTUAL language-based SUBSTITUTE REALITY as a SUPPORT TOOL based on the EFFABLE-IZING of a POOR CARICATURE of our sense-experience reality. However, as Emerson notes, we WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS are letting THE TOOL RUN AWAY WITH THE WORKMAN, the HUMAN WITH THE DIVINE (i.e. WE ARE LETTING the EFFABLE SUBSTITUTE REALITY RUN AWAY WITH THE INEFFABLE SENSE-EXPERIENCE REALITY).. The result is FRAGMENTATION.
* * *
THE BASICS: …. Antoine Béchamp came finally, at the end of his life, to agree with Louis Pasteur that ‘Le microbe n’est rien, le terrain est tout’. This is a kind of ‘summary statement’ of our understanding of Modern physics where material forms are condensations of the electromagnetic field.
This understanding means that we cannot assume that that material entities are ‘moving’, a classical physics assumption which we have given a foundational role to in the very basic structure of our WESTERN CULTURE language and grammar; i.e. we use NAMING to impute the MATERIAL EXISTENCE of notional LOCAL THINGS-IN-THEMSELVES and we conflate this with GRAMMAR to notionally equip these THINGS with THEIR OWN POWERS OF AUTHORING ACTIONS AND DEVELOPMENTS.
That is A RECIPE for a LANGUAGE-BASED SUBSTITUTE REALITY CONSTRUCTION which is currently serving as the OPERATIVE REALITY in our WESTERN CULTURE SOCIAL DYNAMIC but the EASTERN CULTURE, and here I include the indigenous aboriginal cultures, have retained (although such retention is being eroded by WESTERN CULTURE thinking) the understanding of reality that is implied in ‘Le microbe n’est rien, le terrain est tout’ which is an expression of the Modern physics finding that ‘matter is a condensation of the electromagnetic field’.
This shift in understanding is a shift in the LOGIC that we impute to be basic to NATURE. We WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS continue to employ BINARY LOGIC PRECEDENCE in our mental modeling of reality, over QUANTUM LOGIC. While BINARY LOGIC implies the EITHER/OR separate existence of LOCAL MATERIAL OBJECTS within an ABSOLUTE EMPTY AND INFINITE CONTAINING SPACE wherein FIGURE and GROUND are TWO separate and independent ontologies, … QUANTUM LOGIC implies the BOTH/AND conjugate relation of FLUID FORMS and FLOW wherein FIGURE-and-GROUND-are-ONE integral wholeness (the ‘field’).
BINARY LOGIC wherein FIGURE and GROUND are TWO is the basic key to understanding REALITY employed in WESTERN CULTURE AND IN NEWTONIAN PHYSICS while QUANTUM LOGIC wherein FIGURE and GROUND are ONE is the basic key to understanding REALITY employed in indigenous aboriginal cultures AND IN MODERN PHYSICS.
This leads to TWO DIFFERENT VERSIONS OF REALITY which I distinguish in my writing by referring to BINARY LOGIC based reality as the SUBSTITUTE REALITY since it is clearly a BINARY LOGIC based ABSTRACTION as contrasted with QUANTUM LOGIC which ACKNOWLEDGES the UNITY (NONDUALITY) of MATTER and FIELD.
I have been writing about this same theme for twenty years now, and I can’t say that I feel like my messaging, or similar messaging by others is ‘making a difference’ and that concerns me for the same reason this same challenge of communications concerned Bohm and Nietzsche, as far as I can make out.
Bohm, Nietzsche, myself and numerous others, including most indigenous aboriginals, Taoists/Buddhists and Advaita Vedanta adherents, have all gotten to this same understanding, so it appears to me, that our WESTERN CULTURE concept of REALITY is fundamentally WRONG and MISLEADING and this is moving our society towards a very profound condition of PSYCHOLOGICAL CONFUSION which is in turn generating pain and suffering.
While many nominally agree with this, I don’t believe I see it the same way as many of these others do, such as Jungian psychologists. Of course, Jungian psychologists are considered among those having the best ideas as to what is ‘sanity’ and what is ‘insanity’ so disagreeing with Jungian psychology is likely to be more defining as to the condition of my own psyche than anyone else’s. As Giordano Bruno said as they took him to be burned at the stake for the heresy of ‘relativity’, … The majority has no monopoly on TRUTH’, but of course the majority DOES have the monopoly as to what shall be the POPULAR TRUTH and thus the OPERATIVE TRUTH, … so watch out, Modern day Brunos!
* * *
WATCH OUT FOR THE POPULAR TRUTH OF ‘INDEPENDENCE BY DECLARATION’ BECAUSE, WHILE DISSONANT BEHAVIOUR IN A RELATIONAL SOCIAL MATRIX IS RELATIONAL AND CALLS FOR A ‘HEALING CIRCLE’ BASED RESOLUTION, DISSONANT BEHAVIOUR IN A COLLECTION OF INDEPENDENT BEINGS MUST BE RESOLVED BY THE IDENTIFICATION AND ELIMINATION OF THE AUTHOR OF THE OFFENSIVE BEHAVIOUR. THIS FOLLOWS FROM THE ASSUMPTION OF ‘INDEPENDENT BEINGS NOTIONALLY WITH THEIR OWN POWERS OF LOCAL AUTHORING AS ESTABLISHED BY THE ‘DOUBLE ERROR’ OF ‘NAMING’ AND ‘GRAMMAR’.
THE STAKE-IN-THE-GROUND KEEPING THE ‘LOCAL AUTHOR’ CONCEPT OF ‘PATHOGEN’ IN POPULAR PRIMACY OVER EASTERN ‘RELATIONAL DISSONANCE’ IS “EGO” WHICH IS THE SELF’S “DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE, WITHOUT WHICH, THE CLAIMING OF RESPONSIBILITY AND CREDIT FOR THE AUTHORING OF GOOD WORKS WOULD NOT BE POSSIBLE.
For “OPENERS” let me say that the popular employing of TWO VERY DIFFERENT TYPES of LOGIC in our quest for UNDERSTANDING ‘REALITY” is the source of MANY MISUNDERSTANDINGS among our WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS including the VERY DIFFERENT INTERPRETATIONS we CAST UPON COVID 19.
The “DOUBLE ERROR” of NAMING and GRAMMAR establishes a (FALSE) notion of a LOCAL AUTHOR of actions and developments. Instead of the TRANSFORMING LANDSCAPE, we get the LOCAL AUTHOR called ‘the AVALANCHE’ which abstractly REDUCES TRANSFORMATION which is NONLOCAL, RELATIONAL and CONTINUOUS to a BIPOLAR DICHOTOMY featuring a MALE ASSERTIVE agent and a FEMALE ACCOMMODATING agent as where the MOUNTAIN SOURCES the AVALANCHE which the VALLEY OPENS UP TO RECEIVE. This BREAK-UP into CONJUGATES is further BASTARDIZED by WESTERN CULTURE where we extract the MALE CONJUGATE and simply DROP OUT the FEMALE.
In terms of SYSTEMS of LOGIC, this gives us both BINARY LOGIC (EITHER/OR logic of the excluded medium) which implies the HARD SPLIT between the AVALANCHE which moves from being PART OF THE MOUNTAIN to become PART OF THE VALLEY, but which implies at the same time QUANTUM LOGIC (BOTH/AND logic of the included medium) wherein the MOUNTAIN is no longer THE SAME MOUNTAIN and the VALLEY is no longer the SAME VALLEY, underscoring the reality of TRANSFORMATION which is only reduced to material mechanics of fragments falling into holes by, as Nietzsche observes, the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR.
This essay explores how BINARY LOGIC and QUANTUM LOGIC lead us to very different understandings of reality and to how QUANTUM LOGIC explains the success of REBALANCING approaches such as FECAL MICROBIOTA TRANSPLANTATIONS and SUGGESTS SIMILAR REMEDIES for COVID 19 rather than regarding and treating it as a BINARY LOGIC based ATTACKING PATHOGEN.

BINARY LOGIC is a strong LIMITER of our understanding of the complexities of Nature. Ever since Copernicus decided that it was SIMPLER to understand the planets as separate from and moving through a great emptiness, we WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS have given BINARY LOGIC first billing in our ruminations as to the workings of Nature.
QUANTUM LOGIC reaches understandings that BINARY LOGIC cannot reach, including the understanding of why Fecal Microbiota Transplantation can cure illness.
This GREATER REACH of QUANTUM LOGIC is TELLING US THAT FMT may be a REMEDY for COVID 19.
There is a kind of emergent SCHIZOPHRENIA in the WESTERN CULTURE social dynamic generally, as pointed out by David Bohm, which is now showing up in Canadian politics and in the rise of the PEOPLE’S PARTY led by Maxime Bernier.
The salient issue appears to be the GOVERNMENT IMPOSING OF VACCINATIONS for COVID 19; a GOVERNMENT EDICT which Bernier’s Peoples Party opposes as does a sizeable slice of the Canadian population who have reacted against in vitriol-filled demonstrations that are unlike most political protest in Canada in recent times.
Since it is a hot issue and since all of the other political parties in Canada have policies which are steam-rolling over the minority who are angry at being labelled ANTI-VAXXERS by Justin Trudeau and seemingly the bulk of the Canadian political establishment. This has been opening the door to a major division within the population, not only on this single issue of removing freedoms of those who fail to comply with government vaccination directives but by effectively MARKING them as misfits by going along with the issuing of Vaccine Passports that will is discriminatory to them not by an armband that identifies them as ‘lesser beings with lesser entitlements’ but by their lack of a ‘passport” which now reclassifies natural freedoms of movement as a privilege only available to those who agree to be vaccinated.
This kind of closing down of accepted freedoms of movement, and re-opening them only to those who will agree to ‘take their medicine’, is not being taken kindly to, not only by those who are not prepared to take the vaccine, but by many of those who have or will take the vaccine but who resent the loss of personal freedom that the government led vaccination campaign imposes.
The social moral of acting in support of the good of the social collective has generally found support from the sense it gives the ‘contributor’ of having made a voluntary decision to do unto others as you would have them do unto you, which is very different from being served an ultimatum of ‘doing this for others or else have those others remove your personal freedoms’.
People are well accustomed to ‘distancing’ during time of illness or plague to prevent the spread but an immunization program is more like issuing people a radiation-proof space-suit in the wake of a radioactive material spill to keep things moving in spite of the deterioration in the environment. Maybe we should be doing more to restore a clean pathogen-free environment.
There is always ambiguity between IMBALANCE where REBALANCING occurs naturally and POLARIZING OPPOSITION involving WINNER-LOSER CONFLICT.
Alternative Title: The HOLOGRAPHIC UNIVERSE
In choosing a title for this essay, I thought of how Bohm chose titles like “Wholeness and the Implicate Order” while Nietzsche was addressing the same topic with titles like “Twilight of the Idols, or, How to Philosophize with a Hammer” and how these seemed to favour ONE SIDE or the OTHER of the reality of a NON-DUALITY. Of course, in reading their works, one soon realizes that they are claiming that the popular reality of WESTERN CULTURE as propagated through our DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR based language (as Nietzsche rightly describes it) So Bohm goes for WHAT IS while Nietzsche goes for WHAT IS NOT.
Why not be upfront about how we are FOOLING OURSELVES, and by “WE” I intend WE WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS who, as Bohm claims are driving ourselves CRAZY by FRAGMENTING REALITY and living and behaving as if we were independent fragments and as if we lived in NATIONS which are independent fragments and worked in CORPORATIONS which are independent fragments, a BULLSHIT ‘independence’ deriving, as Nietzsche says, from the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR where we speak of things GROWING like ‘the HURRICANE’ which we say is GROWING LARGER AND STRONGER’, … giving the impression that there is a local thing there that we could capture and put in a bottle and observe “ITS” thrashing around. But, no, there is no LOCAL THING associated with the NAME “HURRICANE” there is only the TRANSFORMING RELAITONAL CONTINUUM IN WHERE THERE IS HURRICANING as a “disturbance” WITHIN THE ONE WHOLE TRANSFORMING RELATIONAL CONTINUUM.
So, as Bohm points out, we (WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS) have a PROBLEM because we are using LANGUAGE and GRAMMAR that breaks the transforming relational continuum aka the WAVE-FIELD aka the Tao, the world of our sense-experience of inclusion therein, … into MANY FRAGMENTS, … and THEN and ONLY THEN, … are we forced to come up with the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR to try, within the constraining realm of LANGUAGE-based-CONCEPT-CONSTRUCTING, to construct a decent REPRESENTATION of our sense-experience reality. In constructing this LANGUAGE-based, syche-stimulated REPRESENTATION, we WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS have employed, as Nietzsche points out, a DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR as in the HURRICANE example where the relational form in the transforming relational continuum such as the HURRICANING, we use language to LIFT OUT AS IF THE FLOW-FEATURE WERE A SEPARATE AND INDEPENDENT THING (thans to NAMING) and equip it with ITS OWN POWERS OF AUTHORING ACTIONS AND DEVELOPMENT with GRAMMAR.
That DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR is how HURRICANING IN THE TRANSFORMING ATMOSPHERE (the ATMOSPHERING) is LIFTED OUT and SET DOWN …. AS IF IT WERE…. A LOCAL THING-IN-ITSELF…. WITH-ITS-“OWN POWERS” of AUITHORING ACTION AND DEVELOPMENT; i.e. NO MORE BEING A RELATIONAL FORM IN THE TRANSFORMING RELATIONAL CONTINUUM, … AFTER THIS DOUBLE ERROR OF NAMING AND GRAMMAR TREATMENT, … HAVING ASCENDED INTO A CONDITION OF INDEPENDENT BEING EQUIPPED WITH ITS OWN POWERS OF AUTHORING ACTIONS AND DEVELOPMENT.
GOODBYE HOLOGRAPHIC UNIVERSE, HELLO FRAGMENTED WESTERN CULTURE PSYCHOLOGICAL FRAGMENTATION, because the fragmentation SURE AS HELL IS NOT ‘OUT THERE’ in the transforming relational continuum AND NEITHER IS THERE GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT OF THE FRAGMENTS BECAUSE THERE ARE NO FRAGMENTS. So when the talk starts up and the double errors of naming and grammar spew forth for the intellect to put together into the construction of REPRESENTATIONS OF REALITY that are LOCAL and EXPLICIT
SOMETHING JUST WENT AMISS WITHIN OUR THOUGHT AND LANGUAGE CONSTRUCTION REGIME and it is by way of this DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR as Nietzsche calls it, because IT GIVES US THE ABSTRACT SUBSTITUTE REALITY featuring LOCAL AUTHORING of actions and developments including FROWTH and DEVELOPMENT and PRODUCTION and these are concepts that enable FRAGMENTATION of our sense-experience reality of inclusion in continual flux; i.e. the reality of inclusion in the transforming relational continuum aka the WAVE-FIELD aka the Tao.
PREFACE: This essay was in pursuit of understanding of VACCINE TECHNOLOGY vis a vis the PATHOGEN CONCEPT and how the understanding of HEALTH as BALANCE has got lost in the WESTERN CULTURE shuffle. So, while the the investigation is nominally into the VACCINE and PATHOGEN concepts, it sheds insights on WESTERN CULTURE dysfunction (FRAGMENTATION) in general.
The “BOTTOM LINE” is that FRAGMENTATION and associated dysfunction is permeating WESTERN CULTURE by way of the language architecture being based on the LOCAL and EXPLICIT. These are ABSTRACTIONS that permit language to FRAGMENT REALITY by constructing a SUBSTITUTE REALITY based on the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR, as pointed out by Nietzsche. The FRAGMENTED PSYCHO-PATHOLOGY that pervades WESTERN CULTURE, as pointed out by Bohm and Nietzsche is deriving from our LANGUAGE ARCHITECTURE which, unlike MODERN PHYSICS and unlike the indigenous aboriginal FLOW-BASED languages, reduces fluid reality (the transforming relational continuum of our sense-experience) to the LOCAL and EXPLICIT. So, instead of speaking in terms of HURRICANING IN THE TRANSFORMING RELATIONAL CONTINUUM which invokes the NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT, we reduce the LANGUAGE-based REPRESENTATION to the LOCAL and EXPLICIT HURRICANE and its LOCALLY AUTHORED EXPLICIT ACTIONS or MOVING HERE AND THERE and GROWING LARGER and STRONGER and now SMALLER and WEAKER, the focus being squarely on the LOCAL and EXPLICIT while the overall TRANSFORMING CONTINUUM in which HURRICANING is a relational feature, drops off ‘our radar screen’ as our mind’s eye focuses on the LOCAL and EXPLICIT as we DOCUMENT the development and movements of ‘the HURRICANE’. The REAL REALITY of the transforming relational continuum GIVES WAY as we let the LOCAL and EXPLICIT ‘TAKE OVER’ (i.e. take over the psychological representation that is the current ‘keeper’ which is a reduction of the ineffable-because-nonlocal and implicit sense experience of inclusion in the transforming relational continuum.
While the EAST chose to employ a relational language architecture which makes use of a multiplicity of relations within a NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT we of associates that can be ‘brought into connective confluence’ so as to SUGGEST a fluid dynamical world, the WEST chose gp with a LANGUAGE ARCHITECTURE based on the LOCAL and EXPLICIT SUBSTITUTE REALITY that employs FRAGMENTS such as ‘the TOWN that is GROWING’ instead of the LANDSCAPE THAT IS TOWNING. While the former is LOCAL and EXPLICIT, the latter is NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT . The LOCAL and EXPLICIT serves up as if it were REAL, the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR based LOCAL AUTHORING of actions and developments which stimulates an EGO based emotion that supports the SUBSTITUTE REALITY and thus supports the FRAGMENTATION that comes with this LOCAL and EXPLICIT SUBSTITUTE REALITY CONSTRUCTION.
WESTERN CULTURE is experiencing increasing dysfunction as the FRAGMENTED SUBSTITUTE REALITY stories continue to be fabricated and promoted as TRUTH while making no sense at all due to their being based in LOCAL and EXPLICIT terms even though we live in a NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT transforming relational continuum, which as Systems Sciences note, is a world characterized by “global interconnectedness and mutual interdependence …”
