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 …”
* * * end of PREFACE * * *
There is a TWIST in the WESTERN PSYCHE that is IRONIC in that WE WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS are using what we falsely believe (thanks to EGO) are our own POWERS OF LOCAL AUTHORING to attack OURSELVES as in SCHIZOPHRENIA mentioned by Bohm as part of our obsession with FRAGMENTATION by way of the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR (which imputes LOCAL AUTHORING).
Because we believe that we have the power to AUTHOR good deeds and live our lives as LOCAL BENEVOLENCE-GENERATORS, the symmetry of BINARY LOGIC demands that there be a POLAR OPPOSITE of LOCAL PATHOLOGY GENERATORS or PATHOGENS.
Both MODERN PHYSICS and THE EAST understand reality in the AUTHORLESS terms of relational TRANSFORMATION as invokes QUANTUM LOGIC which, being relational comprehends the world dynamic in terms of BALANCE between RESONANT relations and DISSONANT relations or ‘LOVE and STRIFE’ in Heraclitus’ terms. Since RESONANCE and DISSONANCE are NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT relations, the abstract notion of the LOCAL AUTHOR has no place in this reality, thus indigenous aboriginal social well-being is NOT pursued by the rewarding of BENEVOLENCE AUTHORS and punishing of PATHOLOGY AUTHORS, but by encouraging relational resonance and discouraging relational dissonance through ‘healing circles’.
In WESTERN CULTURE, because of the belief in LOCAL AUTHORING, there is an innate tendency to PURIFICATIONISM wherein relational dissonance is perceived as being AUTHORED by PATHOGENS so that the REMEDY is the tracking down and ELIMINATION of PATHOGENS. So, because our EGO insists on belief in LOCAL AUTHORING social the emergence of social dissonance is assumed to be PATHOGEN sourced and the remedy is therefore the identification and deactivating of PATHOGENS.
If ‘the EASTERN relational balance and imbalance is the real reality, and it HAS been backed up by Modern physics, the search for the PATHOGEN will have to end up by identifying OURSELVES. As Pogo of the comic strip observed, ‘we have found the enemy and it is us’. Modern physics agrees. The PATHOGEN concept is BINARY LOGIC generated ABSTRACTION. In this relational world, there is relational dissonance but NO PATHOGENS; i.e. NO LOCAL AUTHORS OF actions and developments, BENEFICIAL OR HARMFUL. The ‘LOCAL AUTHOR’ bit is the part that has to go but in WESTERN CULTURE it has persisted because many INFLATED EGOs would suffer deflation if LOCAL AUTHORING were to be exposed as the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR ABSTRACTION (illusion) that it is.
This WESTERN CULTURE preservation of the concept of the PATHOGEN which is anchored in place by EGO is HOLDING OFF WESTERN CULTURE understanding of health and illness as relational resonance and relational dissonance, whether in the social dynamic or in the dynamics of the microbial assemblage.
WESTERN MEDICINE as well as WESTERN JUSTICE can thus be BLIND to the reality that THERE ARE NO SUCH THINGS AS PATHOGENS and that health and illness associate with relational resonance and dissonance in the social collective and in the microbial assemblage.
In the indigenous aboriginal culture as in Modern physics, as Schroedinger observes, SUBJECT AND OBJECT ARE ONLY ONE in which case there are no PATHOGENS or in other words, NO LOCAL and EXPLICIT AUTHORS of PATHOLOGY but there is relational dissonance which is NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT (relational) the remedy for which is the recultivating of harmony/resonance as in ‘healing circles’. Sure, the indigenous aboriginal may shoot and eliminate a trouble-maker he will not assume LOCAL AUTHORSHIP so that the elimination is only a short term expedient while the remedy lies in the resolving of relational dissonance that channels through individuals but is not ‘locally authored’
The continuing WESTERN CULTURE practice of identifying “the REAL, LOCAL, EXPLICIT AUTHOR OF PATHOLOGY” aka “the PATHOGEN” is chasing at PHANTOMS since we, the social collective and the co-authors of relational dissonance that discharges through an individual ‘lightning rod’ or ‘channeler’ but this does not make the ‘lightning rod’ the AUTHOR. The “LIGHTNING ROD” or ‘CHANNELER’ of NONLOCAL relational dissonance is NOT A PATHOGEN (LOCAL AUTHOR) of the dissonance, thus the ANTI-PATHOGEN approach is a form of DELUSION or SCHIZOPHRENIA as Bohm has pointed out is endemic in our WESTERN CULTURE FRAGMENTATION-ADDICTED social collective.
* * * END OF FORWARD * * *
Through continuing researches into the evident popular use of a DUMBED DOWN REALITY among ‘us’ WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS, the following KEYSTONE INSIGHT has ‘surfaced’.
BINARY LOGIC is INTRINSICALLY INFERIOR to QUANTUM LOGIC yet, thanks to WESTERN CULTURE LANGUAGE USAGE, it has risen to a MISPLACED POPULAR DOMINANCE, not simply DUMBING DOWN the quality of UNDERSTANDING (substituting intellectual abstraction based understanding for sense-experience grounded understanding), but by SHORT CIRCUITING, AS IN “BLOCKING” the attainment of THE INNATELY MORE COMPREHENSIVE QUANTUM LOGIC which furnishes understanding that is “BALANCE” based. This BINARY LOGIC “SHORT CIRCUIT” or “DUMBING DOWN” is characteristic of WESTERN CULTURE LANGUAGE USAGE and comes with the abstract notion of LOCAL AUTHORING.
LOCAL AUTHORING implies BINARY LOGIC wherein something “EITHER” exists “OR” does not exist. This is distinct from QUANTUM LOGIC wherein something “BOTH” exists “AND” does not exist, as describes forms with a TRANSFORMING relational continuum. For example, the transforming landscape is MORE REAL in our sense-experience than the relational forms that are continually emerging and subducting. It is only our visual perception coupled with our LANGUAGE that subjectively REIFIES relational forms as are continually outwelling and inwelling into and from the transforming relational continuum we share inclusion in.
For example, a VOLCANIC CONE that ‘pops up’ on THE FLAT PRAIRIE LANDSCAPE is still included in the TRANSFORMING LANDSCAPE (that is QUANTUM LOGIC) but as soon as one SWITCHES to speaking of the GROWTH of the VOLCANO, we depart from SENSE-EXPERIENCE REALITY on inclusion in the TRANSFORMING LANDSCAPE … AND ENTER INTO A SUBSTITUTE REALITY WHEREIN THE NONLOCAL AND IMPLICIT DYNAMIC OF TRANSFORMATION IS REPLACED BY A SUBSTITUTE REALITY THAT IS LOCAL AND EXPLICIT, making the GROWTH of LOCAL THINGS “APPEAR” POSSIBLE.
The word “APPEAR” is in quotation marks since it is only with a LANGUAGE BASED SUBSTITUTE REALITY THAT THERE ARE “LOCAL THINGS” that “GROW” as if within an ABSOLUTE EMPTY AND INFINITE CONTAINING SPACE. In other words, while the all-including TRANSFORMATION is what our sense-experience is informing us is REALITY, the combination of VISION, INTELLECTUAL ABSTRACTION (reduction of relational forms to notional ‘LOCAL THINGS-IN-THEMSELVES’) and GRAMMAR equips us for constructing a SUBSTITUTE REALITY featuring LOCAL, EXPLICIT THINGS-IN-THEMSELVES with GRAMMAR-given powers of actions, GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT and PRODUCTION. Only in the intellectual abstraction of the SUBSTITUTE REALITY do LOCAL and EXPLICIT FIGURES APPEAR to exist ‘in their-own-right’ and have GRAMMAR-given powers of AUTHORING actions such as GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT and PRODUCTION.
So, … the language-based inventing of LOCAL GROWTH comes by way of a ‘DOUBLE ERROR’ (as pointed out by Nietzsche), the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR where we create (within the ABSTRACT PICTURES/REPRESENTATIONS that words ‘conjure up’ in the PSYCHE), the impression of LOCAL AUTHORING. NOTE THAT QUANTUM LOGIC retains, consistent with sense-experience, the UNITY of FIGURE and GROUND AS ONE (i.e. MATTER-and-FIELD-as-ONE) and does not fall into the DOUBLE ERROR of the NAMING and GRAMMAR based SPLITTING APART of FIGURE and GROUND..
BINARY LOGIC is a simple logic that, when we use it, it simply SHUTS THE DOOR on FURTHER THINKING as in ‘INNOCENT or GUILTY’. Did Jean Valjean steal the loaf of bread or did he not?
We WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS tend to MOCK those who want to include the ‘extenuating circumstances’ because BINARY LOGIC is the WESTERN CULTURE POPULAR STANDARD for “making sense” of our complex experience
QUANTUM LOGIC, on the other hand, is about BALANCE. Where BINARY LOGIC splits FIGURE and GROUND into TWO, QUANTUM LOGIC accepts FIGURE and GROUND as ONE.
The relative merits of BINARY and QUANTUM logic can be seen in the simple example of the HURRICANE that develops in the ATMOSPHERE.
BINARY logic represents the HURRICANE as something that EITHER exists OR does not exist and this abstract concept of LOCAL EXISTENCE psychologically SPLITS the HURRICANE out of the overall reality (the transforming relational continuum) where we use GRAMMAR to notionally ANIMATE IT (attribute movement and development to it) as if it were a separate thing existing in its own right. The existence of a HURRICANE is established by the question; … IS THIS A HURRICANE OR NOT? THIS IS BINARY LOGIC and we employ it to establish the LOCAL EXISTENCE OF ‘THINGS’, subsequent to which we can use GRAMMAR to DESCRIBE THE MOVEMENT, GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT and PRODUCTION as if “AUTHORED” by these LOCALLY EXISTING THINGS.
BINARY LOGIC is thus a TOOL for constructing REPRESENTATIONS of reality based on notional LOCAL THINGS-IN-THEMSELVES with GRAMMAR-given powers of AUTHORING actions and development.
BINARY LOGIC thus serves as the basis for ARCHITECTING a form of ARTICULABLE (EFFABLE) REPRESENTATION, a means of SHARING some sort of account of our sense experience of inclusion in the transforming relational continuum aka ‘our life experience’. We call this SHARING TOOL “LANGUAGE”.
