BOHM: President Biden, I am concerned about the failure of GLOBAL POLITICAL LEADERS to address the problem of FRAGMENTATION which continues to breed due, in part, to the promoting of NATIONS as INDEPENDENT when the findings of Modern physics and the systems sciences point clearly to the INTERDEPENDENCE of all things. As systems scientist Martine Dodds Taljaard explains, the false impression of INDEPENDENCE least to ill-founded attempts to SUBOPTIMIZE, to try to improve one thing on its own based on the assumption that it is, as DECLARED, “INDEPENDENT” of its neighbours;
“The above aphorism (The Name of the Devil is Suboptimization’), attributed to Kenneth Boulding, points to the inherent weakness characterizing the mindset and socio‐economic, political, educational and managerial practices of Western Industrial society as it developed over the past 300 years. It has its basis in the analytic‐reductionistic scientific paradigm, which, despite the remarkable technological applications it spawned, is inappropriate, conflict‐generating and dysfunctional in a world characterized by global interconnectedness and mutual interdependence …” — György Jaros and Martine Dodds-Taljaard (International Society of Systems Sciences)
(Bohm continues… ) I am concerned that this SUBOPTIMIZATION, another word for which is FRAGMENTATION, in that it is leading us down a path of intensifying dysfunction. I understand that much emotion and effort has been invested, historically, in promoting the concept of INDEPENDENCE, however, it is clear that the concept of INDEPENDENCE is ABSTRACTION and this is perhaps influenced by the Christian religious belief that people are INDEPENDENT inhabitants of a world in which material entities and space are mutually exclusive. The Christian view has been cited as follows;
“Man is rational and therefore like God; he is created with free will and is master over his acts…. Freedom is the power, rooted in reason and will, to act or not to act, to do this or that, and so to perform deliberate actions on one’s own responsibility
On the other hand, Modern physics findings support the indigenous aboriginal understanding as in this aphorism from Chief Seattle suggesting the relations among all things;;
This we know, the earth does not belong to man, man belongs to the earth. This we know. All things are connected like the blood which unites one family. All things are connected. Whatever befalls the earth, befalls the sons of the earth. Man did not weave the web of life, he is merely a strand in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself.”— “Chief Seattle”
Chief seattle’s view of INTERDEPENDENCE is consistent with the Modern physics understanding wherein material forms are condensations of the all-encompassing electromagnetic field.
Joe, as a global leader, I am here to ask you if you could not find a way to lead the global public towards the needed acceptance of the INTERDEPENDENCE of all nations and peoples, as in the above statement by Martine. Modern physics, as well as the Systems Sciences and the indigenous aboriginal peoples are affirming our global INTER-dependence which means that our current intellectual abstraction shaped path of FRAGMENTATION and COMPETITION-INSTEAD-OF-COOPERATION, based on the mistaken belief in SUBOPTIMIZATION, is putting us on what some refer to as a BUSTRIP TO HELL. That is, we are promoting FRAGMENTATION since it is the net effect of our program to PERFECTING what we are assuming to be INDEPENDENT systems in the wake of our DECLARING their INDEPENDENCE, although they remain innately INTERDEPENDENT due to their inclusion in a world characterized by global interconnectedness and mutual interdependence
WESTERN CULTURE IS “IN TROUBLE” BECAUSE WE WESTERN CULTURE PARENTS FAIL TO TEACH THE FOLLOWING TO OUR CHILDREN.0
PREFACE: While our language has a long history of development, some of its features that have been built in to effect simplification or convenience, even though they may ‘drop out information’, are taken for granted. In the case in question, the abstract BINARY LOGIC concept of REASON has been SUBSTITUTED fro the sense-experience concept of BALANCE. This is the equivalent of SUBSTITUTING SPACE THAT IS FLAT (Euclidean) for the SPACE OF OUR SENSE-EXPERIENCE which is SPHERICAL. This SUBSTITUTION has us THINKING in terms of GROWTH instead of in terms of TRANSFORMATION or in other words REASON instead of BALANCE. SO, we may REASON that we can DOUBLE or TREBLE the acreage we have under cultivation, as if that “MAKES SENSE” while the indigenous aboriginal may interject,
‘NO, THAT DOES NOT MAKE SENSE because the reality is that every increase in your cultivated land is, at the same time, a conjugate reduction of WILDERNESS DIVERSITY, so that what you are about to do constitutes TRANSFORMATION and not GROWTH. GROWTH is an ABSTRACTION that only happens in the WHITE MAN’S MATHEMATICAL SPACE which is empty and infinite, unlike the space of our natural SENSE-EXPERIENCE wherein our FEELING of BALANCE gives us GUIDANCE. Your reliance on the intellectual abstractions of REASON based on RATIO, in place of our sense-experience of BALANCE, is encouraging the FOLLY of SUBSTITUTING the MALE concept of GROWTH for the CONJUGATE MALE-FEMALE understanding of TRANSFORMATION.
The above pseudo dialogue between an indigenous aboriginal and a WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENT points to the habitual language based REDUCTION of SPHERICAL SPACE understanding to FLAT (Euclidean) SPACE understanding wherein sense-experience BALANCE is being traded out for the intellectual abstraction of REASON aka RATIO. This LANGUAGE ARCHITECTURE FACILITATED TRADE-OUT SUBSTITUTES the MALE concept of GROWTH for the FEMALE-MALE conjugate of TRANSFORMATION. This gives us a language architecture that allows us to model reality in the abstract BINARY LOGIC terms of GROWTH (the ‘thing-that-grows does so in a notional abstract empty space) in place of our sense-experience understanding in QUANTUM LOGIC terms of BALANCE where the “GROWING TOWN” and the conjugate “SHRINKING WILDERNESS” are acknowledged as ONE TRANSFORMING UNITY.
The WESTERN CULTURE language architecture achieves SIMPLIFICATION by way of a REDUCTION that removes the FEMALE aspect (BALANCE is thus reduced to RATIO), leaving us with a MALE-only SUBSTITUTE REALITY, wherein we have simply DROPPED OUT the FEMALE conjugate thus REDUCING TRANSFORMATION TO GROWTH. With this SIMPLIFICATION achieved by the DROPPING OUT of the FEMALE conjugate (henceforth the unmentioned DEA ABSCONDITA) the groundwork is laid down for SUBSTITUTE REALITY constructions in one-sided MALE-ONE terms of RATIO based GROWTH. While our sense experience reality REMAINS CONSCIOUS of inclusion in the full FEMALE-MALE conjugate dynamic of TRANSFORMATION, our intellectual language-based constructions of reality, we SWITCH OVER to the MALE ONLY “FLAT-SPACE” SUBSTITUTE REALITY where we can fashion representations that capture the imputed “GROWTH” of cultivated lands WITHOUT ACKNOWLEDGING the FEMALE conjugate SHRINKAGE of WILDERNESS.
What we “SEE” in our “MIND’S EYE” are language-induced IMPRESSIONS such as the notional “GROWTH OF THE TOWN” like pancake batter poured onto and spreading out on the flat griddle, ‘washing out’ in our mind the thoughts of Lao Tzu (“know the male but keep the role of the female”) where the FEMALE is that WHOLENESS that is accommodating the MALE intrusion, this FEMALE-MALE conjugate dynamic being the sense-experience affirmed reality where the FEMALE WILDERNESS opens up to accommodate “MALE GROWTH” of the “CULTIVATED”. As parents, we naturally cultivate and open up an interesting space for our child’s development and while language permits us to represent the child’s development in a one-sided SUBSTITUTE REALITY framing that DROPS OUT the FEMALE inductive shaping influence of a development-inspiring space, presenting only a one-sided MALE-ASSERTIVE representation in the DOUBLE ERROR (NAMING and GRAMMAR) terms of GROWTH and DEVELOPMENT, the unmentioned FEMALE conjugate is the predominating inductive developing agency. The including, accommodating WILDERNESS is the FEMALE conjugate that makes possible the talk in terms of the MALE conjugate of GROWTH and DEVELOPMENT, underscoring how INCOMPLETE the imagery is, of GROWTH of the TOWN in terms of pancake batter spreading out on the flat surface of the griddle. When the WILDERNESS is acknowledged, we may envisage it as the FEMALE that is opening herself up to not simply ACCOMMODATE the MALE ‘GROWTH” but to NURTURE such development, all within the natural QUANTUM LOGIC of relational BALANCE. It is BINARY LOGIC that we use to engineer the REDUCTION of BALANCE to REASON with its one-sided MALE-ONLY propositions which are innately INCOMPLETE as Goedel’s Theorem reminds us.

The DIFFERENCE between BALANCE and REASON.
Indigenous aboriginal children BUT NOT OUR WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS’ CHILDREN, are taught the importance of BALANCE while we teach our children the importance of REASON.
BALANCE is a SPHERICAL SPACE concept and if we were painting a sphere with TWO colours (e.g. RED and GREEN), regardless of the shapes of the splotches, we would have a sense of BALANCE as to how much of the one relative to the other we were putting on.
RATIO , otherwise known as REASON or RATIONALITY is a FLAT SPACE concept that is BASIC to WESTERN CULTURE LANGUAGE based REPRESENTATION. If we wanted to paint a flat space with TWO COLOURS (e.g. RED and GREEN we could measure the AREA of RED and put on an EQUAL AREA of GREEN.
Notice that our MEASURING Of the respective areas of RED and GREEN in the FLAT SPACE would give us RATIO but NOT the sense of BALANCE.
For example, if we were painting a RED AREA and GREEN area on a FLAT SPACE, we would have an INFINITY of ways to paint equal amounts of RED and GREEN. For example, we could just continue increasing the area of RED and matching it by increasing the area of GREEN so that they were always EQUAL.
MORE ON “We who are CONFUSING OURSELVES with LANGUAGE such as OMICRON, COVID and other ALLEGED PATHOGENS:0
THE PITFALLS OF THOUGHT and LANGUAGE have been written about by Vygotsky (“Thought and Language”), Goedel (“Goedel’s Incompleteness Theorem”), Bohm (“Implicate Order”), Wittgenstein (Tractatus Logico Philosophicus”), Nietzsche (“Twilight of the Idols”) and others, … and the Pitfalls HAVEN’T GONE AWAY and, yes, we CONTINUE TO FALL INTO THEM.
Talking about PATHOGENS such as COVID screws us up. Bohm suggested that our WESTERN CULTURE use of language was infecting us with Schizophrenia and Paranoia, … and, yes, it can get scary when we WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS IMAGINE that there is a SELF-OTHER SPLIT and it is THE OTHER that is SCREWING US UP when it is really US who are SCRWING OURSELVS UP because that’s the way it HAS TO WORK because WE ARE INCLUDED in the WORLD WE ARE LOOKING OUT AT. There is NO SUBJECT-and-OBJECT SPLIT. As Schroedinger energetically insists; SUBJECT and OBJECT are ONLY ONE, as is he message of Modern physics and OUR OWN INTUITION.
And HOW DID WE FALL INTO THE TRAP OF FALLING OUT OF THAT UNDERSTANDING OF OUR INCLUSION IN THE WORLD WE ARE LOOKING OUT AT? WHERE DID THIS IMPRESSION COME FROM THAT WE, the SUBJECT, is SPLIT OUT of the OBJECT WORLD. Where did we get this CRAZY IDEA of DECLARING INDEPENDENCE?
Don’t look now, but there are a lot of US CRAZY WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS out there, waving flags and banging drums, announcing to the world (i.e. to ourselves) our own INDIVIDUAL INDEPENDENCE!
HOW CRAZY IS THAT?!
NOTE REGARDING THE TITLE:
This TITLE does not mean that I am an ANTI-VAXXER. My writing includes reference to myself having been twice vaccinated for COVID 19. The shift from BINARY LOGIC thinking to QUANTUM LOGIC OPENS UP THE REALITY from its narrow BINARY LOGIC interpretation to a QUANTUM LOGIC interpretation. QUANTUM LOGIC is BALANCE-based and changes our understanding of HEALTH and ILLNESS issues (recasts them in terms of BALANCE and IMBALANCE).
In our ANTI-PATHOGEN (BINARY LOGIC) mode of thinking, VACCINES are PROTECTION against PATHOGENS. So we have the situation in South America where there are extremes of RICH and POOR where the RICH are never without the PROTECTIVE shield of ARMED GUARDS or POLICE.
BUT IT IS THE IMBALANCE that is the basic problem so that as long as that IMBALANCE persists, the would-be REBALANCERS aka PATHOGENS, are constantly looking for new ways to RESTORE BALANCE meaning to ‘get some of the nurturances etc. that the ‘HAVES’ have constant access to while DEFENDING AGAINST the rebalance-seeking HAVE-NOTS’.
In ANY SITUATION involving IMBALANCE, Nature continues to innovate in pursuit of restoring balance, which means that there will be a continuing sequence of REBALANCER VARIANTS, not only in the case of microbial assemblages but also in the case of human social assemblages.
Technologies that attempt to BLOCK REBALANCING such as DEFENSIVE POLICE FORCES are NATURALLY going to INDUCE the emergence of VARIANTS in the REBALANCING AGENTS and in their REBALANCING APPROACHES so long as the IMBALANCE persists. One may therefore conclude that DEFENSES SUPPORTING THE PERSISTENCE OF IMBALANCE will induce NEW REBALANCER VARIANTS which we WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS commonly MIS-IDENTIFY as PATHOGEN VARIANTS.
IMBALANCE IS PRIMARY and IT IS UNNATURAL to cultivate DEFENSES that PROTECT and PERPETUATE IMBALANCE (e.g. bolstering police forces to perpetuate RIch and Poor imbalance). As we know from our own social hisory (e.g. the FRENCH REVOLUTION), it is not uncommon in our WESTERN CULTURE to use POLICE DEFENSES to PROTECT IMBALANCE which then INDUCES THE DEVELOPMENT OF NEW REBALANCER VARIANTS AKA ‘PATHOGEN VARIANTS’.
The WESTERN MEDICINE ERROR which is also the WESTERN JUSTICE ERROR is to CONFUSE NATURAL FORCES OF BALANCE RESTORING for THE ATTACK OF PATHOGENS. VACCINES are an ANTI-PATHOGEN technology which falls into this category. It is a DEFENSIVE AGENCY which serves to SUSTAIN AND PERPETUATE IMBALANCE as is easily seen in the case of POLICE used to DEFEND RICH and POOR IMBALANCE. The current emergence of new forms of THIEVERY in the U.S. and other places derives from a continually rising IMBALANCE in WEALTH DISTRIBUTION. In Health and Medicine, VACCINES that are used to BLOCK REBALANCING are the inductive source of REBALANCER VARIANTS.
AGAIN, the COMMON MISTAKE MADE IN WESTERN MEDICINE is the failure to acknowledge that ILLNESS is IMBALANCE which induces the proliferation of REBALANCERS which are MISTAKENLY classified as PATHOGENS; e.g. C. DIFFICILE in the case of COLITIS. C. DIFFICILE IS A REBALANCER THAT IS THE RESULT OF ILLNESS-AS-IMBALANCE, NOT THE CAUSE OF ILLNESS-as-PATHOGEN-ATTACK, howeve, our most common WESTERN MEDICINE’S CONDITIONED REFLEX is to MISTAKE C. DIFFICILE for an ATTACKING PATHOGEN.
VACCINES are used to NULLIFY the effect of ATTACKING PATHOGENS which means that if those ATTACKING PATHOGENS are instead REBALANCERS, VACCINES are PERPETUATING IMBALANCE, just as POLICE can be used to PROTECT and PERPETUATE a rising RICH and POOR IMBALANCE. My support for VACCINES is like my support for POLICE in that during periods of rising IMBALANCE (e.g. of RICH and POOR) we need to put a damper on the rise of spontaneous, violent REBALANCING while at the same time attending to the REBALANCING in a fully cooperative manner involving RICH and POOR.
BUT SUPPOSING that we simply used POLICE to preserve rising RICH and POOR imbalance and nullify the spontaneous and violent REBALANCER efforts. It this was all that were done, the IMBALANCE would remain and we would have an endless succession of REBALANCER VARIANTS, THUS WE MUST FIND AND ADDRESS THE SITUATIONS OF IMBALANCE THAT INDUCING THE PROLIFERATION OF REBALANCING AGENTS MISIDENTIFIED AS PATHOGENS.
* * * END OF NOTE EXPLAINING TITLE * * *
Understanding PATHOGEN VARIANTS gets an assist from QUANTUM PHYSICS.
QUANTUM PHYSICS is about BALANCE and IMBALANCE and so is HEALTH and ILLNESS.
SO what does this say about ILLNESS from the new COVID PATHOGEN called OMICRON?
THE FIRST THING IT SAYS is that if we assume;
(A) that ILLNESS is the body out of BALANCE, the REMEDY will be to REBALANCE the body, and if we assume ,
(B) that ILLNESS is the attack of a PATHOGEN, the REMEDY will be to eliminate the PATHOGEN.
THE NEXT THING IT SAYS is that;
(C) IF WE ASSUME (B) that the illness is due to a PATHOGEN and the reality is (A) that the illness is actually due to IMBALANCE, then eliminating the mis-identified PATHOGEN will only give TEMPORARY RELIEF (the deeper source of IMBALANCE as in RICH and WELL-FED vis a vis POOR and STARVING that induces THIEVERY by the POOR and STARVING will only be briefly paused by the RESPONSE of ELIMINATING THIEVES since it the DYSFUNCTION does not start with THIEVES but with IMBALANCE). BINARY LOGIC orients to ELIMINATION OF THIEVES while QUANTUM LOGIC orients to RESTORING BALANCE.)
EAST AND WEST and why NEVER THE TWAIN SHALL MEET (Kipling)
My investigations (tapping into the investigations of others such as Bohm and Nietzsche) point to a number of things that we WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS have got driven into our brains that are plain WRONG which screw up understanding leading to a whole WESTERN CULTURE that is in mutual agreement on understandings which are IN ERROR.
This is where the BUS TRIP TO HELL comes in that WE ALL ARE ON even Chief SEATTLE’s offspring who all know that the dominant culture is on a bad course, because it is like we are all on same boat and if the majority votes to take us down iceberg alley, we are going down iceberg alley because that is the way things work and those who don’t agree can’t ‘transfer to another universe’.
MISTAKE NUMBER ONE: There is no such thing as LOCAL AUTHORING of ANYTHING because we are all included in the transforming relational continuum.
This means that no-one’s AUTHORING RECORD is better than anyone else’s because we can’t separate the origins of stuff, but we can be smart and get lucky and be the CHANNEL for a lot of good stuff or bad stuff but NEVER THE AUTHOR. People may give us credit for AUTHORSHIP but what is really going on there is our ability to CHANNEL stuff like the invention of gunpowder that may channel on to James Wilkes Booth shooting Abe Lincoln as Bohm points out and as Nietzsche similarly points out, to say that JAMES WILKES BOOTH killed ABE LINCOLN is a DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR that just oversimplifies a far more complex world.
PREFACE: Nature’s dynamic, as understood in Modern physics and in indigenous aboriginal culture, has a WAVE-like CONJUGATE make-up with both FEMALE accommodating and MALE asserting components. However, WESTERN CULTURE language architecture REDUCES this CONJUGATE REALITY to a SIMPLER one-sided MALE-ASSERTIVE SUBSTITUTE REALITY with the help of the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR. While the capture of natural WAVE-FIELD (Female-Male-conjugate) phenomena is accommodated in the flow-based languages of indigenous aboriginal and Modern physics (Quantum Logic), WESTERN CULTURE Common Average European languages (Whorf’s classification) ARTIFICIALLY REDUCE language-based REALITY REPRESENTATIONS to a ONE-SIDED, MALE-ASSERTIVE AUTHORING BASED SUBSTITUTE REALITY REPRESENTATION. As Nietzsche has pointed out, by giving a FOUNDATIONAL ROLE IN LANGUAGE to the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR we establish the ABSTRACTION of LOCAL AUTHORING of actions and developments.
While this DOUBLE ERROR REDUCTION SIMPLIFIES language based representation of reality …. BY INTRODUCING A SIMPLIFIED MALE-ONLY SUBSTITUTE REALITY (e.g. a prime example is ‘the EARTH TURNS ROUND’ which splits apart MATTER and SPACE), there are side-effects of confusion from the DROP-OUT of the FEMALE aspect which can include schizophrenia and paranoia, as has been pointed out by David Bohm. Obvious examples of the DROP OUT of the FEMALE (accommodating) aspect include the ‘Thin Skull Rule in WESTERN LAW which holds a person fully responsible for AUTHORING of injury as if it derived from the MALE ASSERTIVE ACTION, ignoring the FEMALE ACCOMMODATING conjugate. Another example is the imputing of AUTHORSHIP of a forest fire to a person who has discarded a cigarette butt, which under most circumstances would have no significant effect, such effect being driven by the FEMALE conjugate to a far greater degree than by the MALE ‘trigger’.’
While the reduction to the MALE ASSERTIVE conjugate DOES SIMPLIFY language based representation of REALITY, … what is being REPRESENTED is NO LONGER “REALITY” but is instead manufacturing a MALE ASPECT ONLY “SUBSTITUTE REALITY” The UTILITY of this WESTERN CULTURE LANGUAGE REDUCTION of REALITY to the MALE-ONLY SUBSTITUTE REALITY comes from its enabling the construction of reality representations that are LOCAL and EXPLICIT, since it is the FEMALE CONJUGATE reality aspect that opens up into the NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT. For e example, it is simpler to speak of ‘the AVALANCHE’ as a MALE ASSERTIVE pile of rocks crashing down the mountain and destroying the TOWN than to included a description of the OPENING OF A HOLE in the LANDSCAPE which then draws the description into the overall TRANSFORMING of the LANDSCAPE which is the combination of both the FEMALE OPENING and the MALE ASSERTING. WESTERN CULTURE LANGUAGE ARCHITECTURE incorporates this REDUCTION TO THE MALE CONJUGATE in order to SIMPLIFY language based representation by selectively EXTRACTING a LOCAL, EXPLICIT FRAGMENT in the manner of a photographic SNAPSHOT which is NOT ONLY no longer ‘included’ in the transforming relational continuum but which, with the aid of GRAMMAR, can become the LOCAL STUB or CENTERPIECE for constructing a new language based SUBSTITUTE REALITY in which case we LET GO OF the natural platform of the transforming relational continuum, and replace it with an ABSOLUTE EMPTY AND INFINITE CONTAINING SPACE.
This SUBSTITUTE REALITY, by its substitution of an ABSOLUTE SPACE REFERENCE FRAME, serves up an artificial INDEPENDENCE from the transforming relational continuum so that our language-triggered psychological perception displays only the local fragment and ITS GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT, … dissolving the memory of inclusion in the NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT TRANSFORMING RELATIONAL CONTINUUM. This DISENCUMBERING FRAGMENTING greatly SIMPLIFIES constructing language based representation of, for example, TOWNING AS AS INTRINSICALLY INCLUDED WITHIN THE TRANSFORMING RELATIONAL CONTINUUM, however, we are then obliged to come up with our own means of ANIMATING this FRAGMENT we are SYNTHETICALLY LIBERATING within our new SUBSTITUTE REALITY that sports a new ABSOLUTE EMPTY AND INFINITE CONTAINING SPACE. The LOCAL FIGURE is now INDEPENDENT and SEPARATE FROM THE GROUND so that we can use language and grammar to manage the GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT and PRODUCTION as if LOCALLY AUTHORED by the liberated figure; i.e. “THE TOWN” in the EMPTY EUCLIDEAN SPACE, formerly understood as (and remains in indigenous aboriginal languages as in Modern physics as) “the TOWNING IN THE TRANSFORMING RELATIONAL CONTINUUM.”.
This WESTERN CULTURE language architecture, which reduces relational forms in the flow with the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR to ‘make them out to be’ LOCAL AUTHORS of actions and development within a new SUBSTITUTE REALITY, while it greatly SIMPLIFIES language based representation of REALITY —CORRECTION — What is going on is not the development of a SIMPLIFIED REPRESENTATION but the introduction of a SIMPLIFIED SUBSTITUTE REALITY wherein ‘the TOWNING IN THE TRANSFORMING LANDSCAPE’ has been synthetically CHOPPED OUT of the transforming relational continuum and RE-INVENTED as a LOCAL, INDEPENDENTLY EXISTING THING-IN-iTSELF with its own GRAMMAR-GIVEN POWERS of AUTHORING actions and development. The EMPTY SPACE we have installed this ABSTRACT new TOWN in is lacking the FEMALE ACCOMMODATING qualities that come with the TOWNING in the TRANSFORMING RELATIONAL CONTINUUM which means that we must now present the MALE as being the FULL AND SOLE LOCAL AUTHOR OF ITS OWN ACTIONS AND DEVELOPMENT. This is why, in this WESTERN CULTURE LANGUAGE-BASED SUBSTITUTE REALITY, we have come up with the THIN-SKULL RULE in LAW that establishes the one-sided MALE AUTHOR of the injury, and the identification of the careless smoker as the one-sided MALE AUTHOR of the forest fire.
Note that these problems are arising from our project of FRAGMENTING REALITY so that we can capture it in our DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR based language architecture and thus be able to share and discuss representations of reality from experiences or potential experiences of the past present or as may develop in the future. This language-capturing, rather than ‘capturing a fragment of ineffable-because-nonlocal-and-implicit reality’, is INVENTING a SUBSTITUTE REALITY which is LOCAL AND EXPLICIT which is, in WAVE-FIELD terms, a reduction of he MALE-FEMALE CONJUGATE WAVE-FIELD, to the MALE COMPONENT ONLY since this is where the SIMPLIFICATION comes from since the MALE aspect is LOCAL and EXPLICIT and thus EFFABLE while the FEMALE aspect is NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT. As Lao Tzu suggests; “Know the male.
But keep the role of the female.”
IN THIS PREFACE, the problem is being raised that we WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS have developed and are using a language architecture that avoids the direct attempt to capture explicit representations of reality (IMPOSSIBLE since everything is in flux) and instead orients to the inventing of a SUBSTITUTE REALITY that CAN BE REPRESENTED in LOCAL and EXPLICIT terms; e.g. the AVALANCHE instead of the TRANSFORMING LANDSCAPE. The AVALANCHE is a LOCAL CONCEPT that involves movement of rocks relative to a fixed reference frame which is in effect a SUBSTITUTE REALITY which REPLACES the sense-experience reality of inclusion in the transforming relational continuum. While the AVALANCHE appears to be ‘out in front of us’, TRANSFORMATION is ALL-INCLUDING and CANNOT therefore be captured by language-based propositions that serve up VOYEUR viewable pictures to be understood as FRAGMENTS of reality. While the TRANSFORMING CONTINUUM includes “TOWNING IN THE TRANSFORMING LANDSCAPE”, our habit is to use language to fabricate a SUBSTITUTE REALITY that features ‘the TOWN’ that we use GRAMMAR to equip with its own (notional) POWERS OF AUTHORING actions and development. It’s not that this SUBSTITUTE REALITY representation is not a potentially valuable tool, the problem is as Emerson has put it; ‘the TOOL has been running away with the workman, the human with the divine” We DO NOT LIVE IN THAT SUBSTITUTE REALITY, WE LIVE IN THE TRANSFORMING RELATIONAL CONTINUUM, but we WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS ARE MISTAKENLY EMPLOYING THE SIMPLIFIED MALE-CONJUGATE ONLY “SUBSTITUTE REALITY”; i.e. this language TOOL consisting of NAMING instantiated ‘local things in themselves’ with GRAMMAR-given powers of AUTHORING actions and development’, AS OUR “OPERATIVE REALITY”. This is our WESTERN CULTURE CRAZY-MAKER!
ANTHROPOGENIC GLOBAL WARMING is exemplary of this aberrant practice of imputing LOCAL AUTHORSHIP by way of the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR. As inclusions in the transforming relational continuum, relational forms-in-the-flow including us ANTHROPOIDS are innately without LOCAL AUTHORING POWER, our contributions to the world dynamic coming through the web of relations that ‘are us’, a ‘web of relations’ as associates with condensations within the electromagnetic field as understood with QUANTUM LOGIC rather than BINARY LOGIC. Thus “things” are NOT the source of relations as would imply a BINARY LOGIC containing space separate from the things contained, but relations are the source of things as in QUANTUM LOGIC.
* * * …. end of PREFACE …
Our Interpreting of COVID 19 as an ATTACKING PATHOGEN follows the WESTERN CULTURE LANGUAGE-BASED CONSTRAINT of expressing EVERYTHING in MALE-ASSERTIVE TERMS, avoiding like the plague, the FEMALE aspect.
For example, WESTERN JUSTICE convicts people of AUTHORING the forest fire by carelessly discarding a cigarette butt, as if this act is the CAUSE of the fire, a proposition that is ALL MALE and NO FEMALE; i.e. fails to take into consideration the FEMALE RESPONSE or RECEPTIVENESS to the ‘MALE’ HOT POKER assertion which in the rainy season gets ZERO response. In other words, the condition of the forest as the recipient of the spark is the major influence as to what manifests.
This IGNORING of the FEMALE CONJUGATE is characteristic of WESTERN CULTURE LANGUAGE ARCHITECTURE. Instead of TRANSFORMATION as where the contours of the valley SEDUCTIVELY GATHER runoff waters into creeks, streams and then the powerful river, we CREDIT THE MALE RIVER with CARVING OUT THE CANYON when it was the FEMALE VALLEY itching to get her bottom scratched that was the REAL source of the dynamic.
So, it is evident that TRANSFORMATION involves FEMALE and MALE conjugates. Without the inductive gathering organization of the FEMALE VALLEY which harnesses and directs the gravitational field, there would be no MALE ASSERTIVE RIVER, carving out canyons. TRANSFORMATION entails both FEMALE and MALE conjugates, … HOWEVER, WHILE EASTERN LANGUAGES CAPTURE THIS IN THEIR FLOW-BASED LANGUAGES, WESTERN LANGUAGE ARCHITECTURES REDUCE THE NATURAL FEMALE-MALE CONJUGATE DYNAMIC OF TRANSFORMATION TO ONE-SIDED MALE ASSERTIVE ACTION SUCH AS “GROWTH”, ”DEVELOPMENT” AND “PRODUCTION”.
AUTHOR’S PREFACE: WESTERN CULTURE is commonly credited, by WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS, with REMARKABLE ADVANCES in KNOWLEDGE and TECHNOLOGY that put WESTERN CULTURE in an elevated standing in World History. Yet there are detractors, including indigenous aboriginal cultures that feel that WESTERN CULTURE is royally screwing things up. There seems to be evidence in support of both these apparently contradictory appraisals, and this essay explores how ‘this is so’. “PROGRESS” is a kind of LINEAR PROGRESSION that can characterize all manner of ways in which WESTERN CULTURE social collectives are growing, developing and producing agricultural and industrial developments and production. At the same time, there may be CONJUGATE LOSSES in the health of the Wilderness that is being exploited to make possible the impressive GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT and PRODUCTION. The RISE OF INDUSTRY and the DECLINE of WILDERNESS is a conjugate QUANTUM LOGIC balance measure found in the one dynamic of TRANSFORMATION. In the WAVE-FIELD reality in which we are included, it is relatively simple to make measurements of the MALE ASSERTIVE changes that are LOCAL and EXPLICIT but far more difficult to make measurements of the CONJUGATE FEMALE ACCOMMODATING that is NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT; e.g. the holes in the ground where ores are being extracted for smelting metals and the sand and gravel extracted for concrete construction, the gaps in the forest where trees have been taken for lumber, and these HOLES are the FEMALE CONJUGATE that goes together with the MALE ASSERTIVE dynamics of GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT and PRODUCTION, to jointly comprise the complex conjugate dynamic of TRANSFORMATION.
While WESTERN CULTURE ‘reality’ is commonly expressed in such terms as GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT and PRODUCTION, these speak only of a BINARY LOGIC based SUBSTITUTE REALITY which DROPS OUT the FEMALE ACCOMMODATING HOLES that are CONJUGATE to the MALE ASSERTING DEVELOPMENTS, and it is these two conjugates together that constitute the SENSE-EXPERIENCE AFFIRMABLE reality of TRANSFORMATION. There is a PITFALL here in that a single-minded focus on PROGRESS as measured in terms of GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT and PRODUCTION within the SUBSTITUTE REALITY “IS DISTRACTING US” from the REAL-REALITY SENSE-EXPERIENCE of INCLUSION IN TRANSFORMATION
* * * end of AUTHOR’S PREFACE * * *
PROGRESS is a LINEAR-IN-TIME IMPROVEMENT IN “OUR” (HUMAN) LIVES, usually in the sense of STREAMLINING THINGS FOR US HUMANS; e.g. we lay down FREEWAYS that disturb the lives of snakes and many other creatures. In general, this word “PROGRESS” is highly ANTHROPOCENTRIC and I have to be careful with my language here because Modern physics would have us understand that ‘everything is related’ within the ONE WAVE-FIELD also known as ‘the Tao’.
SPACE IS NOT EMPTY, AND THIS CHANGES THE WHOLE BALLGAME AND LEAVES US WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS IN THE LURCH0
Because the combination of empty space and explicit matter is the basis of BINARY LOGIC as used in our WESTERN CULTURE representations of reality where things move through space. This the basis of BINARY LOGIC
This has enabled thoughts of LOCALLY AUTHORED activities such as GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT and PRODUCTION and this is where we start to get an inkling of the problem of representation that has been been resolved in Modern physics but which had already been resolved in indigenous aboriginal cultures, Taoism/Buddhism and Advaita Vedanta where the understanding is that MATTER IS A CONDENSATION OF FIELD which requires QUANTUM LOGIC wherein FIGURE and GROUND are ONLY ONE; i.e. the condensations in the field are nevertheless FIELD and can be though of as RESONANCEwithin the FIELD so that there is no MOTION OF THINGS but only TRANSFORMATION as in the TRANSFORMING RELAITONAL CONTINUUM.
This is HARD TO SWALLOW but only because we are so used to MAKING THINGS WORK in terms of the BINAYR LOGIC of FIGURE and GROUND are TWO. If we think of the world in terms of a HOLOGRAPHIC UNIVERSE as has been suggested by Bohm and written about by others and which remains a prominent theory of the universe as in the work of physicist Julian Barbour (
It would be much more natural to specify our distances to all objects. They define our position. This conclusion is very natural once we become aware that nothing is fixed. Everything moves relative to everything else. Taking this further, thinking about the position and motion of one object is artificial. We are part of Mach’s All, and any motion we call our own is just part of a change in the complete universe. What is the reality of the universe? It is that in any instant the objects in it have some relative arrangement. … It [the universe] does not move in absolute space, it moves from one configuration to another.” — Julian Barbour
So, we can think of all motion in terms of transformation as in a hologram where the forms we can see are condensations of the energy-field so there is only one thing here and that is the FIELD with the condensations within it that we WESTERN CULTURE adherents have used BINARY LOGIC to split out separately as in the split between MATTER and SPACE.
This is why QUANTUM LOGIC which is experienced as BALANCE is of key importance because every time we revert to BINARY LOGIC we are confusing ourselves, and our WESTERN CULTURE language architecture builds in this SPLITTING with the combination of NAMING and GRAMMAR which is what we use to construct the notion of THINGS moving IN SPACE.
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.
