BINARY LOGIC IS A DEVICE FOR SERVING UP A SIMPLIFIED REPRESENTATION OF REALITY, OR MORE ACCURATELY, “CONSTRUCTING A SUBSTITUTE REALITY WHICH IS SIMPLER”
There are ANALOGIES here such as (A) The Cuckoo’s egg that inserts a more simple bird into a less simple bird’s supportive milieu, or, (B) Putting a simple Volkswagen engine into a PORSCHE because ‘the simpler thing CAN FIT INTO THE SLOT meant for something LESS SIMPLE. Analogies also include WHAT GOES ON WITH THE ILLNESS “COLITIS” which comes in the wake of the administering of an ANTI-biotic that KILLS many of the BODY’S “ESSENTIAL” (good) COMPLEX MICROBES who’s places are then “OCCUPIED” (‘taken over’) by SIMPLER MICROBES that ‘CAN’T DO THE LESS SIMPLE JOB’ but whose ‘OCCUPATION’ of the key slots BLOCKS THE RETURN of the NEEDED, LESS SIMPLE MICROBES. The ‘work-around’ for this is to RE-LOAD the FULL MICROBIAL ASSEMBLAGE complete with “SOCKETS AND THEIR PROPER OCCUPANTS”.
This process, termed “Fecal Microbiota Transplantation” or FMT resolves the dilemma wherein the ‘fancy microbe apartments’ that were ‘cleared out’ by the antibiotic and then re-occupied by simpler microbes BLOCK RE-ENTRY of the needed “LESS SIMPLE’ microbes. The problem is that the microbes arrange themselves so as to form ‘openings’ based on a full complement of the full diversity of microbes which come together so as to form custom slots hat accommodate the full diversity arranged so as to open up custom slots for each other where the OCCUPANT must MATCH THE SLOT, and the LESS SIMPLE SLOT must be filled with the corresponding LESS SIMPLE OCCUPANT.
This scheme is FOILED in the wake of the antibiotic administering since many microbial species are ELIMINATED IN A WILLY-NILLY manner, so that the matched arrangement of SOCKETS and OCCUPANTS is MESSED UP and we have the WRONG OCCUPANTS in the WRONG SOCKETS and the manifestation of this screw-up is COLITIS, the REMEDY for which is to assist the body in restoring the healthy arrangement of SOCKETS and OCCUPANTS in the microbial assemblage. MORE ANTI-BIOTICS to kill more strains of microbes is NOT the REMEDY since the PROBLEM of COLITIS is the ABSENCE OF ESSENTIAL MICROBES, hence the successful REMEDY of Fecal Microbiota Transplantation which RESTORES those microbial strains THAT HAVE BEEN ELMINATED BY THE ANTI-BIOTICS, a RESTORATION that cannot be achieved by administering MORE ANTI-BIOTICS since ANTI-BIOTICS only REMOVE microbes and COLITIS is resolved by RESTORING essential microbes that are no longer present, having been removed by the antio-biotics.
It is IMPORTANT to note that the IMBALANCE in microbial content has led to the MISTAKEN JUMPING TO CONCLUSIONS when observing that unusual ‘rogue’ strains of microbes are proliferating in the body, that these ‘rogue’ microbes ARE THE CAUSE OF ILLNESS. THEY ARE NOT THE CAUSE OF ILLNESS, they are symptomatic of IMBALANCE in the microbial assemblage, THE REMEDY FOR WHICH IS RE-BALANCING the microbial assemblage, for which the 90+ percent successful remedy is Fecal Microbiota Transplantation.

WHY SO MUCH VERBIAGE ON FMT WHEN THE MAIN TOPIC IS TO ELUCIDATE ON BINARY LOGIC VIS A VIS QUANTUM LOGIC? I.E. …
How WESTERN and INDIGENOUS ABORIGINAL LANGUAGES DIFFER in their SHORTCHANGING REPRESENTATIONS OF REALITY.0
AUTHOR’S PREFACE: Understanding the PSYCHO-DYNAMICS of LANGUAGE ARCHITECTURE
Imagine YOURSELF as an ARCHITECT of LANGUAGE. If you do, you will come to a GREAT DIVIDE in ARCHITECTURAL OPTION which can be compared to observing the GATHERING and SCATTERING of ants as the fetch from a pool of honey beneath a dripping bees nest high above. On the flat ground, the ants come and go in WAVES; i.e. they GATHER and SCATTER as the come to collect and depart to deliver the honey. What the OUTSIDE OBSERVER SEES is a GATHERING and SCATTERING pattern which, although it is in continuing flux, impresses upon us a REPRESENTATION featuring “A CLUSTER” which undergoes cycles of GROWTH and SHRINKAGE, even though the actual dynamic is cluster-ING and the CLUSTER part of it is APPEARANCE and WE HAD BETTER BE CAREFUL because if we ARCHITECT a LANGUAGE which employs the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR, we will end up IMPUTING LOCAL BEING to ‘the CLUSTER’ and compound this FIRST ERROR with the SECOND ERROR of GRAMMAR which imputes to the FIRST ERROR, i.e. ‘the CLUSTER’, its own (notional) POWERS OF AUTHORING GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT.
This DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR that imputes LOCAL AUTHORING where there is one, gets to play an AMAZING ROLE in our WESTERN CULTURE SOCIAL DYNAMIC by GETTING INTO THE PSYCHE OF THE WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENT through the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR LANGUAGE-BASED FRAGMENTATION scheme. So, instead of an understanding in terms of GATHERING-SCATTERING as in CLUSTERING (an innately fluid dynamic), we INVERT our understanding and CONJURE UP a SUBSTITUTE REALITY featuring LOCAL AUTHORING of GROWTH and SHRINKAGE. Instead of WAVES of GATHERING and SCATTERING as in CLUSTERING, we have ‘the CLUSTER’ and instead of the GATHERING phase of CLUSTERING, we have GROWTH of the CLUSTER, and instead of the SCATTERING phase of CLUSTERING, we have SHRINKAGE of the CLUSTER, such the we end up constructing a SUBSTITUTE REALITY which imputes AUTHORING POWER to the CLUSTER, a vision-and-psyche contrived ILLUSION.
The SIMPLIFYING of REALITY by reducing the RESONANCE based WAVES of GATHERING and SCATTERING to a LOCAL AUTHOR based SUBSTITUTE REALITY is what distinguishes indigenous aboriginal languages from WESTERN CULTURE Common Average European languages. Instead of acknowledging as BASIC, the RESONANCE based features such as the CLUSTERING or the TOWNING, our WESTERN CULTURE approach to LANGUAGE-BASED REPRESENTATION is to SIMPLIFY, the TOWNING in the same sense as the CLUSTERING EXAMPLE, using the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR (Nietzsche) to impute LOCAL AUTHORING of actions and developments.
GOODBYE RESONANCE BASED TRANSFORMATION, …HELLO FRAGMENTATION.
UNDERSTANDING the PSYCHO-DYNAMICS of LANGUAGE ARCHITECTURE IS WHAT THIS ESSAY IS ALL ABOUT.

That is, the SHORTCHANGING in the REPRESENTATION of REALITY in indigenous aboriginal languages “IS FAR LESS” than the SHORTCHANGING of REALITY in WESTERN CULTURE Common Average European language architectures, and the following explains (a) how this is the case, and (b) some of the important ramification that come from our ACTING on the basis of these INACCURATE LANGUAGE-based REPRESENTATIONS..
There must first be a reminder that there are two basically different types of language architectures (A) flow-based (nonlocal-implicit) as with indigenous aboriginal language and Bohm’s ‘Rheomode’ language architecture, and (B) object-based (local, explicit) as with the Common Average European language architecture;
–1- EXAMPLE of FLOW-BASED LANGUAGE ARCHITECTURE: “There is TOWNING in the TRANSFORMING LANDSCAPE”. Note the ANDROGYNOUS FEMALE-ACCOMMODATING — MALE ASSERTING combined inference, characteristic of FLOW.
–2- EXAMPLE OF OBJECT-BASED LANGUAGE ARCHITECTURE: “The TOWN is GROWING, DEVELOPING and PRODUCING goods and services. Note the ONE-SIDED MALE ASSERTIVE inference (This come with the SUBSTITUTION of absolute empty and infinite space IN PLACE OF the FEMALE accommodative conjugate).
THAT IS; THERE ARE TWO LANGUAGE ARCHITECTURES; (-1-) the “LESS-SIMPLE” (quantum logic) NONLOCAL, IMPLICIT FLOW-BASED (indigenous languages, Bohm’s Rheomode) LANGUAGE ARCHITECTURE which is capable of DIRECTLY expressing BALANCE and IMBALANCE, and, (-2-) the SIMPLE (binary logic) LOCAL, EXPLICIT OBJECT-BASED (Western Culture Common Average European LANGUAGE ARCHITECTURE) which is INCAPABLE of DIRECTLY expressing BALANCE.
The respective examples illustrate the fact that the FLOW-BASED language architecture (e.g. ‘there is TOWNING in the TRANSFORMING LANDSCAPE’ avoids any LOCAL and EXPLICIT CONSTRAINING so that the entire FIGURE and GROUND combination is free to transform as ONE; i.e. This language architecture which is capable of expressing FIGURE and GROUND as ONE is said to have a QUANTUM LOGIC capability. This can be understood in that the TOWNING in the TRANSFORMING LANDSCAPE is like the BOILING in rapidly flowing stream where BOILING and the FLOWING are ONE. For example, we would be in error to speak of the BOIL ‘growing’, ‘devloping’ and ‘producing turbulence’ as if it HAD ITS OWN LOCAL AUTHORING POWER, which would also, at the same time, imply its INDEPENDENT EXISTENCE, a inference that would FORCE on the viewer the necessity of CREATING an ABSOLUTE EMPTY AND INFINITE CONTAINING SPACE.
In other words, for FLOW-BASED language architecture supports the representation of “FIGURE” and “GROUND” as “ONE” as captured with ‘There is TOWNING in the TRANSFORMING LANDSCAPE’) , … and DOES NOT INVOLVE the SPLITTING APART of “FIGURE” and “GROUND”, so that the THEN-LIBERATED “TOWN” is free to do its own one-sided MALE-ASSERTING “ACTION”, “DEVELOPMENT”, “PRODUCTION”.
“Die Philosophie ist ein Kampf gegen die Verhexung unsres Verstandes durch die Mittel unserer Sprache” (Philosophy is a battle against the bewitchment of our intelligence by means of our language.)” – Ludwig Wittgenstein, Philosophical Investigations
This article reviews how LANGUAGE is the ROOT SOURCE of FRAGMENTATION in the dynamics of our Common Average European language speaking social collective, a dysfunction that has spread through the world with the spread of English and other European languages. This FRAGMENTATION is NOT a pervasive problem in those indigenous aboriginal social collectives that have retained their indigenous languages as their first language.
A language-based representation of our sense-experience reality requires a language architecture with a QUANTUM LOGIC foundation. BINARY LOGIC is insufficient (it is innately SIMPLER than QUANTUM LOGIC).
Where BINARY LOGIC splits FIGURE and GROUND (matter and space) into TWO so that we see the material FIGURE as moving through the EMPTY GROUND (space),…
QUANTUM LOGIC comprehends FIGURE and GROUND as ONE so that we understand the FIGURE (matter) as being a CONDENSATION of the electromagnetic WAVE-FIELD (ground). The empty space was part of the BINARY LOGIC simplifying abstraction which is not needed in the QUANTUM LOGIC WAVE-FIELD.
Our COMMON AVERAGE EUROPEAN language architecture tends to DISTORT REALITY by DROPPING OUT the FEMALE CONJUGATE of the ANDROGYNOUS WAVE-FIELD dynamic and substituting an ABSOLUTE, EMPTY and INFINITE CONTAINING SPACE. The loss of the FEMALE CONJUGATE leads to one-sided MALE-ASSERTIVE REPRESENTATIONS which are source of FRAGMENTATION.

What Benjamin Whorf classifies as the Common Average European (CAE) Languages contain within them the seeds of FRAGMENTATION, and this note is written to ELUCIDATE on how this occurs.
The LANGUAGE-based FRAGMENTATION problem, which David Bohm points out is not constrained to FRAGMENTING ‘what goes on out there’ in the dynamics of the social collective, but also ‘what goes on IN HERE’ and can be the source of SCHIZOPHRENIA and PARANOIA.
AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS LANGUAGE-BASED FRAGMENTATION IS BINARY LOGIC.
Since we are right now using that particular form of language (CAE) that we could say is INFECTED with this PITFALL that we may or may not FALL INTO, it is a bit tricky to explain WITH this CAE language because the nature of the FRAGMENTATION problem is that important information is DROPPED OUT because of our desire for SIMPLIFICATION in our language-based REPRESENTATION.
This SIMPLIFICATION is NOT FOUND in indigenous aboriginal language or in FLOW-BASED (relational) languages, which is why David Bohm suggested that we CAE language users needed to switch to A NEW LANGUAGE LANGUAGE ARCHITECTURE such as the flow-based design he called Rheomode. Meanwhile, he discovered that the indigenous aboriginal languages ALREADY EMPLOYED THE FLOW-BASED (NON-FRAGMENTING) LANGUAGE ARCHITECTURE.
My goal in this note is to TAKE THE READER DIRECTLY TO THE ROOT SOURCE OF THE FRAGMENTATION TRAP WHICH IS OUR USE OF WHAT NIETZSCHE HAS LABELLED “THE DOUBLE ERROR OF NAMING AND GRAMMAR” which INFUSES FRAGMENTATION into our rhetoric with the imputing of LOCAL AUTHORING of actions and development.
WARNING: This language architecture I am right now using employs this DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR but I am going to try to do a work-around in my manner of expressing things.
TEN YEARS AGO, OR LESS, THERE WAS MORE PUBLIC CONFIDENCE (IN OUR WESTERN CULTURE) THAT THERE WAS SUCH A THING AS ‘THE TRUTH’.
THAT IS, THERE HAS BEEN CONFIDENCE THAT THERE IS “TRUTH” AND THAT IT’S JUST A MATTER OF KEEPING AN OPEN MIND AND DOING SUFFICIENT ‘INVESTIGATIONS’ TO DISCOVER ‘THE TRUTH’.
OF COURSE, NIETZSCHE, AMONG OTHERS, INSISTED THAT THERE WAS NO SUCH THING AS ‘THE TRUTH’ AND I GET THE POINT, having been interested for a long while in Goedel’s Theorem of the INCOMPLETEMENT of all FINITE SYSTEMS OF PROPOSITIONS.
It only makes sense, being that we are included in a transforming relational continuum, there are no FIXED LOCAL AND EXPLICIT ‘NUGGETS OF TRUTH’.
Our personal experience is UNIQUE so that TRUTH is not the TRUTH that most people talk about. We talk about ‘the TRUTH ABOUT WHAT IS GOING ON IN THE UKRAINE’. The versions of TRUTH coming from RUSSIA and CHINA differ radically from the versions of TRUTH coming from the U.S. and NATO countries.
We are familiar, from knowledge of prior Wartime periods that many things that were presented as ‘the TRUTH’ were NOT THE TRUTH. And even with the passage of many years, it is not as if “THE TRUTH’ finally ‘floats to the surface’.
There is a problem with TRUTH as a GENERALIZATION since everyone is experience things uniquely. If we want to get to something which approaches a ‘general truth’ it seems as if we have to bring many different accounts of experience into a collective confluence and capture the COHERENCIES in the confluence.
This is effectively what the indigenous aboriginal LEARNING CIRCLE is all about.
As for us WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS, we continue to employ the age-old WESTERN CULTURE method described by Lafontaine; i.e. “La raison du plus fort est toujours la meilleure” (Reason (truth) of the most powerful is always the best’).
The LEARNING CIRCLE approach to the ‘truth’ is also suggested by Nietzsche;
There is only a perspectival seeing, only a perspectival ‘knowing’; the more affects we are able to put into words about a thing, the more eyes, various eyes we are able to use for the same thing, the more complete will be our ‘concept’ of the thing, our ‘objectivity’.– Nietzsche
