THIS IS A “BREAKTHROUGH” for me, in my understanding and it concerns the relationship between FRAGMENTATION and OBSCURANTISM.
Consider the following two ‘views of reality’;
The ‘thin skull’ rule
The thin skull rule makes the defendant liable for the plaintiff’s injuries even if the injuries are unexpectedly severe owing to a pre-exisiting yet stable condition. The defendant must take the victim as they find them with whatever peculiar weaknesses and predispositions they might have, and is liable even though the plaintiff’s losses are more dramatic than they would be for the average person.
The ‘tide in the affairs of men” understanding; (from Shakespeare’s ‘Julius Caesar’;
“There is a tide in the affairs of men Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune; Omitted, all the voyage of their life Is bound in shallows and in miseries.”
* * *
In the LATTER aphorism, there is an acknowledgment of our being included in a dynamic greater than ourselves, (this is the QUANTUM LOGIC understanding wherein material forms are CONDENSATIONS of the all-including electromagnetic field) wherein WE ARE “NOT” AUTHORS OF OUR OWN ACTIONS AND DEVELOPMENTS (as the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR asserts) but, gives us to understand that we are immersed in world of potentials that INVITES OUR PARTICIPATION.
The following SYNOPSIS gives an abbreviated account, elaborated in the body of the essay, of how we WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS are employing a language architecture that incorporates OBSCURANTISM wherein the QUANTUM LOGIC WAVE-FIELD nature of reality is OBSCURED by our infusing of a SIMPLIFIED BINARY LOGIC SUBSTITUTE REALITY. Note that our sense-experience gives us access to the full WAVE-FIELD nature of the world while it is only our WESTERN CULTURE language architecture that OBSCURES the natural WAVE-FIELD reality by infusing SIMPLIFIED (dumbed-down) BINARY LOGIC “EITHER” matter “OR” empty space ABSTRACTION.
SYNOPSIS: We (WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS) could learn from asking ourselves why we have the THIN SKULL rule in our BINARY LOGIC based system of LAW ENFORCEMENT (where if we “abide by the law’ we are among the masses of INNOCENTS UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY). The answer is, the THIN SKULL rule AVOIDS having to deal with the FEMALE ACCOMMODATING CONJUGATE (as in the easily collapsible skull) which is an innate part of our WAVE-FIELD world with its QUANTUM LOGIC dynamics which are ANDROGYNOUS. It is not simply WHAT WE DO that ‘counts’, which is the MALE ASSERTIVE conjugate since reality includes the FEMALE ACCOMMODATING aspect as pointed out in Shakespeare’s ‘Julius Caesar’ … “There is a tide in the affairs of men Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune; Omitted, all the voyage of their life Is bound in shallows and in miseries.”
But even if such FEMALE accommodating ‘opportunity’ opens up for us, our WESTERN CULTURE interpretation is to give us FULL AUTHORING CREDIT regardless. We do the same thing with BLAME as in the example of the THIN SKULL rule, because it is SIMPLER to just ‘GO WITH THE MALE’ (BINARY LOGIC as in ‘He “EITHER” is “OR” is not responsible for AUTHORING this “EITHER” good “OR” bad action and development) rather than to go with the LESS SIMPLE FEMALE-MALE (androgynous) understanding as in Modern physics and as in indigenous aboriginal culture justice where the FEMALE ACCOMMODATING aspect is ALSO taken into account and NOT JUST the MALE ASSERTIVE. But we like to simplify things with BINARY LOGIC and attribute EVERYTHING to the MALE-ASSERTING as if the action were unfolding within an ABSOLUTE EMPTY SPACE OF INFINITE EXTENT (our WESTERN CULTURE SUBSTITUTE REALITY which gets rid of the FEMALE ACCOMMODATING CONJUGATE).
The THIN SKULL RULE demonstrates how we WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS reduce our language based representation to re-cast the QUANTUM LOGIC reality within a BINARY LOGIC based SUBSTITUTE REALITY, wile the ‘tide in the affairs of men’ points to the QUANTUM LOGIC reality wherein what comes of our actions depends upon the FEMALE ACCOMMODATING “IN CONJUGATE RELATION WITH” THE MALE ASSERTING. We do not live in an EMPTY SPACE, we are INCLUDED IN THE WAVE-FIELD so that there is a BALANCE between MALE-ASSERTING agency and FEMALE ACCOMMODATING agency. The THIN SKULL rule is an INTELLECT based OBSCURING of the QUANTUM LOGIC conjugate (androgynous) nature of sense-experience reality by allowing intellectual acceptance of “ONLY” MALE ASSERTIVE language-based representations while the ‘tide in the affairs of men’ representation ACKNOWLEDGES the CONJUGATE (accommodating-asserting) nature of sense-experience reality. WESTERN CULTURE has an EGO problem wherein there is an insistence on imposing the abstraction of one-sided male-assertive “AUTHORING” of actions and developments, by SUBSTITUTING ABSOLUTE EMPTY AND INFINITE SPACE for the FEMALE accommodating conjugate. The ‘tide in the affairs of men’, rather than being seen in terms of QUANTUM LOGIC balance of MALE ASSERTING and FEMALE ACCOMMODATING MAKE THE MISTAKE OF IMPUTING FULL AUTHORING CREDIT TO THE MALE ASSERTIVE, thus OBSCURING the role of the FEMALE ACCOMMODATING CONJUGATE.
This OBSCURANTISM has been built into WESTERN CULTURE LANGUAGE ARCHITECTURE by way of the BINARY LOGIC based DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR (which implies one-sided male-assertive action and development). We WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS have developed a comprehensive intellectual abstraction based infrastructure which supports the construction of a BINARY LOGIC BASED SUBSTITUTE REALITY which we WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS are now using as our OPERATIVE REALITY. There is no FEMALE CONJUGATE in this one-sided MALE-ASSERTIVE, DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR LANGUAGE-based SUBSTITUTE REALITY, therefore the person throwing the punch that shatters the THIN SKULL’ is charged with AUTHORING the deadly damage done, and likewise those who are masters of profiting from the “tides in the affairs of men” (e.g the Elon Musks etc.) are credit with AUTHORING the tides rather than being manipulators of phenomena based on sensitive dependence on initial conditions (the skier that dislodges snow that turns into an avalanche is not the AUTHOR but the TRIGGER for the avalanche, just as the smoker who carelessly discards his cigarette is not the AUTHOR but the TRIGGER for the resulting conflagration (the FEMALE ACCOMMODATING of the forest when it is dessicated by solar irradiance).
As in all of these examples, we WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS have developed a language architecture that OBSCURES THE ACCOMMODATING ROLE OF THE FEMALE and explains all things in the one-sided terms of MALE ASSERTING ACTIONS and DEVELOPMENTS (employing the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR).
The REDUCTION of the ANDROGYNOUS QUANTUM LOGIC of sense-experience reality to one-sided MALE-ASSERTIVE-ONLY BINARY LOGIC constructions INFUSES “OBSCURANTISM” into WESTERN CULTURE LANGUAGE AND THOUGHT representation. WHAT ‘GOES MISSING’ is the FEMALE CONJUGATE and with it, the WAVE-FIELD understanding of our sense-experience reality.

OBSCURANTISM: The practice of deliberately preventing the facts or full details of something from becoming known.
SYNOPSIS: BINARY LOGIC is playing a CAT-and-MOUSE game with QUANTUM LOGIC in our language-stimulated understanding of reality. If BINARY LOGIC gets into our mind FIRST, it LOCKS OUT QUANTUM LOGIC yet QUANTUM LOGIC is LESS SIMPLE and thus able to bring deeper understandings. The words “on EARTH as it is in HEAVEN’ in the Christian Lord’s Prayer presupposes a BINARY LOGICAL structure to reality, and EASTER celebrates the existence of this BINARY LOGIC based PAIR which is the very definition of mathematical MUTUAL EXCLUSION. In the indigenous aboriginal culture, Taoism/Buddhism and Advaita Vedanta, we have a QUANTUM LOGIC structure to reality wherein as suggested by the Yin/Yang symbolism where the Material aspect and the Spiritual aspect are NOT mutually exclusive but are related like MATTER and WAVE-FIELD where MATTER is CONDENSATION of the WAVE-FIELD. This relational defines QUANTUM LOGIC, the BOTH/AND logic of the INCLUDING medium (i.e. the WAVE-FIELD includes the condensations that present as MATERIAL forms in the manner that the spirally WHORLS in river flow, while they seem to be ‘their own thing’ as if separate and independent of the flow, as in fact condensations of the flow as defines the QUANTUM LOGIC relation.
The LANGUAGE ARCHITECTURES of “EAST” and ‘WEST’ differ in that the former employs a QUANTUM LOGIC foundation while the latter employs a BINARY LOGIC foundation. It is IMPORTANT to note that the BINARY LOGIC language architecture is SIMPLER than the QUANTUM LOGIC language architecture in the respect that BINARY LOGIC portrays FIGURE and GROUND as TWO separate ONTOLOGICAL entities, QUANTUM LOGIC portrays FIGURE and GROUND as ONE FLUID DYNAMIC. In the EAST’s QUANTUM LOGIC structure we have BOTH female AND male aspects within a conjugate unity, so that QUANTUM LOGIC language architecture can speak of “TOWNING-IN-THE-TRANSFORMING-LANDSCAPE” which is an ANDROGYNOUS (female and male as ONE) conjugate dynamic. In the WEST’S BINARY LOGIC structure, we have only to concern ourselves with MALE ASSERTIVE aspect; i.e. with THE TOWN and its GRAMMAR given MALE ASSERTIVE powers of GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT and PRODUCTION.
The difference wherein the EAST’s QUANTUM LOGIC is LESS SIMPLE than the WEST’s BINARY LOGIC shows up in our LANGUAGE based REALITY REPRESENTATIONS. For example, the WEST’s BINARY LOGIC based language presumes that FIGURE and GROUND are TWO SEPARATE AND INDEPENDENT ENTITIES, (e.g. where the TOWN) is INDEPENDENT of the landscape it is included within) which we ‘arrange’ by IMAGINING via our LANGUAGE CONSTRUCTS that the TOWN sits within an ABSTRACT EMPTY SPACE OF INFINITE EXTENT. The EAST’s QUANTUM LOGIC based language, on the other hand, presumes that FIGURE and GROUND are ONE where the language capture of this is in terms equivalent to THERE IS TOWNING IN THE TRANSFORMING LANDSCAPE, keeping TOWNING and TRANSFORMING LANDSCAPE together as ONE. The QUANTUM LOGIC relation between the TOWNING and TRANSFORMING LANDSCAPE is thus one of MUTUAL INCLUSION based on BALANCE, the dynamic form of which is RESONANCE as reaffirms the WAVE-FIELD nature of reality. Thus the EAST and WEST language-based ‘realities’ differ on the basis of their respective QUANTUM LOGIC and BINARY LOGIC foundations, the former being LESS SIMPLE than the latter in the sense that the relation between the WAVE-FIELD and its CONDENSATIONS is LESS SIMPLE than the relation between EMPTY SPACE and MATERIAL EXISTENCE.
While EASTERN CULTURE language architectures preserve the LESS SIMPLE QUANTUM LOGIC relation, WESTERN CULTURE language architectures employ the SIMPLER BINARY LOGIC relation. The shift from QUANTUM LOGIC to BINARY LOGIC constitutes “OBSCURANTISM”
OBSCURANTISM is achieved when the understanding conveyed is reduced from;
(A) the less simple FEMALE-MALE CONJUGATE architectural foundation to;
(B) the simple MALE-ASSERTIVE architectural foundation.
EXAMPLE: OBSCURANTISM is achieved by the reduction from;
(A) There is TOWNING in the TRANSFORMING LANDSCAPE to,
(B) The TOWN that is GROWING, DEVELOPING, PRODUCING within a notional ABSOLUTE, EMPTY, INFINITE SPACE.
NOTE: (B) constitutes a SIMPLIFYING MALE-ASSERTIVE SUBSTITUTE for the FEMALE-MALE CONJUGATE WAVE-FIELD. This common WESTERN CULTURE SIMPLIFIED LANGUAGE based representation brings out a loss of expressive capability that suggests the term, DEA ABSCONDITA. This term points to the fact that the FEMALE CONJUGATE which is the TRANSFORMING LANDSCAPE (nonlocal, implicit relational continuum aka ‘wave-field’) and thus THE WHOLE ALL-INCLUDING FIELD, is DROPPED from the representation leaving only the ORPHANED MALE-ASSERTING AGENT TO ‘POSE’ as the LOCAL AUTHOR of the manifest actions and developments. The DROPPING OUT of the PRIMARY AUTHORING AGENCY, the FEMALE CONJUGATE which, in the example, is the TRANSFORMING LANDSCAPE, the ALL-INCLUDING WAVE-FIELD, WHICH “INCLUDES” the “TOWNING”, explains the choice of “DEA ABSCONDITA”. NOTIONALLY ENDOWING THE TOWN “ON ITS OWN” with POWERS of LOCAL AUTHORING of ACTIONS INCLUDING GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT AND PRODUCTION of goods and services, stems from MALE EGO and is achieved through the LOCAL AUTHOR abstraction created with the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR as Nietzsche points out.
* * *
There seems to be a fortuitous (?) synchronicity to my being at the point of summarizing a major problem in our LANGUAGE, as Bohm and Nietzsche have identified, the problem of FRAGMENTATION and the associated confusion of OBSCURANTISM which is where we reduce the LESS SIMPLE QUANTUM LOGIC to SIMPLE BINARY LOGIC. The OBSCURANTISM comes into play as we employ “BINARY LOGIC” in our language based representations where the phenomena of NATURE demands a QUANTUM LOGIC representation. For example, where the indigenous aboriginal languages say ‘THERE IS TOWNING IN THE TRANSFORMING LANDSCAPE’, our Common Average European language architectures SIMPLIFY this by DIFFERENTIATING OUT ‘the TOWNING’, making it over into a LOCAL, EXPLICIT THING-IN-ITSELF by the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR, as Nietzsche refers to it. What this does is to SIDESTEP the innate interdependent inclusion of the TOWNING IN THE TRANSFORMING LANDSCAPE, by abstractly using NAMING to impute LOCAL BEING and conflating this FIRST ERROR with the SECOND ERROR of GRAMMAR which we use to impute LOCAL AUTHORING POWER to the NAMING-instantiated LOCAL BEING.
THIS DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR IS THE BIRTH OF BINARY LOGIC IN WESTERN CULTURE LANGUAGE ARCHITECTURE.
THERE IS NONE OF THIS BINARY LOGIC SPLITTING APART OF FIGURE AND GROUND IN OUR SENSE-EXPERIENCE AND WE WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS NOW KNOW WHY FROM MODERN PHYSICS WHICH HAS SIMPLY REMINDED US OF THE QUANTUM LOGIC STRUCTURE OF REALITY WHEREIN THE MATERIAL FORMS ARE CONDENSATIONS OF THE ALL-INCLUDING (electromagnetic) WAVE-FIELD. WHCH ANSWERS THE AGE-OLD QUESTION OF ‘THE TWO AND THE ONE’ (see anthropologist Mircea Eliade’s ‘Mephistopheles et l’Androgyne’, Engish title ‘the TWO and the ONE’). That is, there has been division in understanding over whether MATERIAL FORMS MOVE THROUGH THE ‘ETHER’ or whether the ETHER has LUMPS IN IT (now we know that SPACE is the WAVE-FIELD while MATERIAL FORMS are CONDENSATIONS OF THE WAVE-FIELD, a reality that means that QUANTUM LOGIC is the basic LOGIC OF THE WORLD WE LIVE IN.
QUANTUM LOGIC is the BOTH/AND logic of the INCLUDING MEDIUM which is just restating the fact that MATTER is a CONDENSATION of the ALL-PERVADING ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELD. That is, ‘matter’ is a concentration of field strength within the field which makes that intense lump of field visible and tangible. And because the WAVE-FIELD is in flux the patterns where the intensity is higher (which we recognize as material objects) can change and move without there ever being any persisting ‘material body’ involved. This is why the world has been described by some as a holographic universe because a hologram has this same property where we can physically distinguish between content and container but rather than this being due to MATTER and EMPTY SPACE, it is due to CONDENSATIONS OF FIELD WITHIN FIELD.
RIGHT HERE WE HAVE THE ISSUE OF HOW QUANTUM LOGIC where FIGURE and GROUND (matter and space) ARE ONE rather than as BINARY LOGIC would have it, FIGURE and GROUND (matter and space) are TWO, an issue which divides the indigenous aboriginal culture from the “WESTERN EUROPEAN” cultures and which is captured in the respective language architectures.
We are playing a game. We are playing at not playing a game. If we show ourselves we see we are, we shall break the rules and we will punish ourselves We must play our game, of not seeing we see the game.” — after R. D. Laing (Knots)
“OBSCURANTISM”, “The practice of preventing the facts or full details of something from becoming known.”
OBSCURANTISM is a game that WE HAVE BUILT INTO WESTERN CULTURE, INTO OUR LANGUAGE ARCHITECTURE by way of the DOUBLE ERROR OF NAMING AND GRAMMAR with its LOCAL AUTHORING ILLUSION. The LOCAL AUTHORING is the basis of a SUBSTITUTE REALITY based on BINARY LOGIC which is SIMPLER than our QUANTUM LOGIC SENSE-EXPERIENCE REALITY.
There is OBSCURANTISM in reducing the QUANTUM LOGIC REPRESENTATION “THERE IS TOWNING IN THE TRANSFORMING LANDSCAPE” to the BINARY LOGIC REPRESENTATION. “THE TOWN IS GROWING, DEVELOPING and PRODUCTING goods and services”, … for once we LATCH ON to thinking in the SIMPLIFIED BINARY LOGIC terms of LOCAL AUTHORING, the LESS SIMPLE understanding in QUANTUM LOGIC terms is OBSCURED. Instead of the QUANTUM LOGIC “THERE IS TOWNING IN THE TRANSFORMING LANDSCAPE” which captures the ANDROGYNOUS WAVE-FIELD “CONTENTS-AND-CONTAINER-ARE-ONE” reality, the INJECTING of the SIMPLIFYING BINARY LOGIC NAMING and GRAMMAR FRAGMENTATION into “the TOWN is GROWING, DEVELOPING and PRODUCING products and services” OBSCURES the LESS SIMPLE “THERE IS TOWNING IN THE TRANSFORMING LANDSCAPE”.
This OBSCURANTISM which injects a SIMPLER BINARY LOGIC “SUBSTITUTE REALITY” in place of the LESS SIMPLE QUANTUM LOGIC sense-experience-affirmed REALITY PERVADES WESTERN CULTURE LANGUAGE-BASED REPRESENTATIONS and as David Bohm has pointed out, is the source of much FRAGMENTATION and DYSFUNCTION in our WESTERN CULTURE SOCIAL DYNAMIC.
OBSCURANTIST LANGUAGE CONSTRUCTS SUCH AS RUSSIA ATTACKS UKRAINE …. psychologically break out RUSSIA and UKRAINE like two ISLANDS in the OCEAN, OBSCURING the reality that the profiles of these TWO ISLANDS can be followed down their respective flanks, down below the water’s surface, down into the depths to the ocean floor to the CONTINUOUS surface of the SPHERE of the earth, informing us that the TWO are in fact only ONE, that FIGURE and GROUND are only ONE as is a STATEMENT of QUANTUM LOGIC, which, in our WESTERN CULTURE PENCHANT FOR BINARY LOGIC BASED LANGUAGE CONSTRUCTIONS is OBSCURED. BINARY LOGIC obscures QUANTUM LOGIC which is LESS SIMPLE and cannot be conveyed by BINARY LOGIC.
This note ‘started off’ to be an explanation of the relationship between BINARY LOGIC (two-state EITHER/OR LOGIC) and QUANTUM LOGIC (three state BOTH/AND BALANCE LOGIC). BINARY LOGIC pervades our WESTERN CULTURE while QUANTUM LOGIC pervades indigenous aboriginal cultures, Taoism/Buddhism and Advaita Vedanta. This gets into the different use and influence of LOCAL and EXPLICIT vis a vis the NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT.
In terms of WAVE-FIELD theory, these are referred to as the REAL and IMAGINARY components of a COMPLEX REALITY (the WAVE-FIELD).
EMERSON and NIETZSCHE focused, respectively, on the IMAGINARY and REAL components while BOHM focused on the WAVE-FIELD itself.
So, I have ‘adjusted’ the orientation of this ‘note’ to serve the BRINGING INTO CONNECTIVE CONFLUENCE, all THREE of these contributions to understanding the WAVE-FIELD nature or reality. Emerson is using romantic language to allude to the often forgotten NONLOCAL AND IMPLICIT aspect of reality. Nietzsche is alluding to the WESTERN CULTURE popularized LOCAL and EXPLICIT with an aggressive approach that aims to SHATTER its pretention to ‘completeness’ by WESTERN CULTURE language architecture’s attempt to foist the MALE ASSERTIVE CONJUGATE on us, as if to declare that that is all that is necessary for capturing ‘reality’.
Nietzsche’s ‘DOUBLE ERROR’ label is an intentional pejorative used to SMASH the concept of the LOCAL AUTHOR and show that it is an ARTIFICIAL CREATION achieved by GLOMMING TOGETHER the language operatives of NAMING and GRAMMAR so that the NAMING establishes a LOCAL PRESENCE and the GRAMMAR conflates this by imputing the POWER OF AUTHORING ACTION to the LOCAL PRESENCE. The LOCAL AUTHOR concept is thus a DECEPTION that needs to be SMASHED in the same sense that the Celts SMASHED STATUES since they implied that something innately spiritual (NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT) could be reduced to the LOCAL and EXPLICIT.
TODAY, we are in possession of a HUGE ARCHIVE of WRITINGS, most of which are giving a foundational role to the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR which is imputing LOCAL AUTHORING. THESE CONSTRUCTIONS NEED TO BE SMASHED in order to get to the sense-experience affirmable understanding which is FLUID as in the WAVE-FIELD dynamic.
Bohm’s orientation has always been to GET IT RIGHT IN THE FIRST PLACE by employing a FLOW-BASED language architecture (e.g. his Rheomode language, which he has pointed out, is a language architecture that has already been developed and exists in the indigenous aboriginal languages). So, here is where EMERSON, NIETZSCHE and BOHM are respectively “COMING FROM”
Emerson: Pointing out in The Method of Nature, that the ALL-INCLUDING FLUID ASPECT of NATURE is DROPPED OUT by our language architecture and we end up ‘going only with the LOCAL and EXPLICIT, having dropped out the NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT;
A man’s wisdom is to know that all ends are momentary, that the best end must be superseded by a better. But there is a mischievous tendency in him to transfer his thought from the life to the ends, to quit his agency and rest in his acts: the tools run away with the workman, the human with the divine. — Emerson
In other words, in our use of thought and language, the local and explicit which is meant only as a Wittgenstein Ladder to INFER the fluid reality; i.e. the NONLOCAL, IMPLICIT WAVE-FIELD CONTINUUM that lies beyond the reach of the LOCAL and EXPLICIT, that latter having utility BUT ONLY AS TOOL OF INFERENCE of the NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT.
The WESTERN CULTURE SCREW-UP IS THUS the DUMBING DOWN (SIMPLIFYING) of the NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT. This SIMPLIFICATION or “SIMPLI-FICTION” is done simply by injecting a SUBSTITUTE REALITY which IS capturable in LOCAL, EXPLICIT language constructs, so that is what we END UP WITH using, i.e. bunch of LOCAL and EXPLICIT ‘IDOLS’ which are like the STATUES of GODS and MEN that Brennus and the Celts SMASHED because the very existence of these statues implied that the SUBJECTS could be reduced to LOCAL and EXPLICIT components. This was the same issue as induced Charles Dickens to write ‘HARD TIMES’ wherein the school teacher Gradgrind, is mocked for his attempts to PURGE THE POETIC (the NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT) from his students thinking entirely.
Charles Dickens in ‘Hard Times’ in the sequence where ‘Sissy Jupe’s relational understanding of a horse is ‘put down’ by her teacher Thomas Gradgrind who insists on grounding all understanding in ‘being’-based ‘facts’ as is the way of mainstream ‘science’;
“Now, what I want is, Facts. Teach these boys and girls nothing but Facts. Facts alone are wanted in life. Plant nothing else, and root out everything else. You can only form the minds of reasoning animals upon Facts: nothing else will ever be of any service to them. This is the principle on which I bring up my own children, and this is the principle on which I bring up these children. Stick to Facts, sir!”
‘Bitzer,’ said Thomas Gradgrind. ‘Your definition of a horse.’
‘Quadruped. Graminivorous. Forty teeth, namely twenty-four grinders, four eye-teeth, and twelve incisive. Sheds coat in the spring; in marshy countries, sheds hoofs, too. Hoofs hard, but requiring to be shod with iron. Age known by marks in mouth.’ Thus (and much more) Bitzer. — Charles Dickens, ‘Hard Times’
THERE IS A BATTLE GOING ON IN WESTERN CULTURE WHICH HAS BEEN PUSHING THE OVERALL SOCIAL COLLECTIVE IN THE DIRECTION OF GOING EXCLUSIVELY WITH THE ‘LOCAL AND EXPLICIT’ AND ‘DROPPING OUT ENTIRELY’, THE NONLOCAL AND IMPLICIT.
THIS IS NOTHING OTHER THAN THE REDUCTION OF THE WAVE-DYNAMIC WHICH IS MATHEMATICALLY CONSTITUTE BY BOTH ‘REAL’ (LOCAL, EXPLICIT) AND ‘IMAGINARY’ (NONLOCAL AND IMPLICIT) ‘COMPONENTS’.
For example, the indigenous aboriginal language will convey the equivalent of ‘there is TOWNING in the TRANSFORMING LANDSCAPE’ which captures BOTH the LOCAL and EXPLICIT ‘TOWNING’ but keeps it in context with the NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT ‘TRANSFORMING LANDSCAPE’. MEANWHILE, our WESTERN CULTURE language will SEPARATE OUT the LOCAL and EXPLICIT and use GRAMMAR to ANIMATE IT as if it were an INDEPENDENT THING-IN-ITSELF with its own POWERS OF AUTHORING actions and development, strutting its stuff within an ABSOLUTE EMPTY AND INFINITE CONTAINING SPACE. as in ‘the TOWN is GROWING, DEVELOPING, PRODUCING products and services.
OK, THAT IS A BRIEF ACCOUNT OF WHERE EMERSON AND NIETTZSCHE ARE COMING FROM; i.e. EMERSON is employing poetic language to get to the NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT aspect of reality and pointing out that we have abandoned it and are instead making EXCLUSIVE use of the LOCAL and EXPLICIT which one might say is the LESSER ASPECT. NIETZSCHE IS NOW LEFT TO DEAL WITH THE WESTERN CULTURE SUBSTITUTE REALITY WHEREIN THE LOCAL AND EXPLICIT IS GIVEN THE FOUNDATIONAL ROLE (WHICH IS WHERE BINARY LOGIC WHICH AFFIRMS THE LOCAL AND EXPLICIT AS IN “EITHER” IS “OR” IS NOT IS GIVEN PRECEDENCE OVER QUANTUM LOGIC WHICH AFFIRMS THE NONLOCAL AND IMPLICIT AS IN BALANCE AND IMBALANCE).
LAST BUT NOT LEAST, DAVID BOHM WHO HAS ‘HELD OUT’ FOR A FULLY ‘WAVE-FIELD CAPABLE’ LANGUAGE (A FLOW-BASED LANGUAGE) SO THAT WE DON’T EVEN BEGIN TO GENERATE MASSIVE FILES OF SCREWED UP LANGUAGE BASED REPRESENTATION BASED ON THE INNATELY DEFICIENT COMMON AVERAGE EUROPEAN LANGUAGE ARCHITECTURE WITH ITS DOUBLE ERROR OF NAMING AND GRAMMAR, LOCAL AUTHORING STRUCTURES.
