SYNOPSIS: DIFFERENT LANGUAGES DROP US INTO DIFFERENT ‘REALITIES’. This has been Benjamin Whorf’s hypothesis and it is also the implication in the philosophical investigations of Nietzsche and Bohm. This essay is aimed at explaining how it is that we WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS have become trapped in a language-based SUBSTITUTE REALITY that is FRAGMENTATION based which is SCHIZOPHRENIA and PARANOIA inducing, on the scale of our WESTERN CULTURE social collective. This essay points to how the philosophical investigations of Nietzsche and Bohm show that what we WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS continue to understand to be ‘reality’ by way of linguistic construction is NOT in accord with our sense-experience reality, but is an INTELLECTUAL SUBSTITUTE REALITY which is the source of FRAGMENTATION, not only in our social dynamic, but also in our individual psyches.
When I say ‘our’, I am am intending ‘WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS; we who are users of the Common Average European languages. These languages are the source of psychological FRAGMENTATION by promoting ‘belief’ in such abstractions as GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT and PRODUCTION, which form the basis of an UNREAL intellectual BEING-based SUBSTITUTE REALITY which ‘squats’ and occupies our psychological awareness and in the process OBSCURES our sense-experience informed INCLUSION IN THE TRANSFORMING RELATIONAL CONTINUUM. By elevating to primary reality status, representations in such terms as ‘the Town is growing’, which is abstract BINARY LOGIC language-based simplification of the less simple QUANTUM LOGIC ‘there is Towning in the transforming Landscape’, we construct and enter into a simplified SUBSTITUTE REALITY wherein GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT and PRODUCTION (all one-sided male-asserting abstractions) serve up a pseudo-REAL FRAGMENTATION, that “TAKES OVER” from our sense-experience awareness of INCLUSION IN THE TRANSFORMING RELATIONAL CONTINUUM aka ‘the WAVE-FIELD’ aka ‘the Tao’.
This essay points out how we WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS, because of our simple BINARY LOGIC based language architecture, are using language that PUTS US INTO and IS KEEPING US IN a “BINARY LOGIC BASED SUBSTITUTE REALITY” wherein one-sided “MALE-ASSERTING” abstractions of “LOCALLY AUTHORED” GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT and PRODUCTION, “TAKE OVER FROM” and “SUBSTITUTE FOR” the sense-experience grounded awareness of INCLUSION IN RELATIONAL TRANSFORMATION as constituted by the WAVE-FIELD. The result of this language-based ‘REDUCTION’ of our sense-experience affirmed inclusion in TRANSFORMATION whereby we SPEAK in terms of living within a FRAGMENTED, BEING-BASED SUBSTITUTE REALITY where, for example, TOWNS are treated as if they are BEING-based local explicit material entities, notionally with their own powers of GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT and PRODUCTION of goods and services, “TAKE OVER” as the dominant ‘SUBSTITUTE REALITY’, OBSCURING our sense-experience affirmed reality of inclusion in the TRANSFORMING RELATIONAL CONTINUUM aka the WAVE-FIELD aka ‘the Tao’.
Our WESTERN CULTURE values and belief system which accepts the abstraction of “LOCAL AUTHORING’ as with the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR, serves to FURTHER SUPPORT the language-based construction of a FRAGMENTED SUBSTITUTE REALITY which reduces ‘TOWNING IN THE TRANSFORMING LANDSCAPE’ to abstract BEING-BASED TOWNS, notionally with “THEIR OWN” (GRAMMAR-GIVEN) powers of AUTHORING “GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT and PRODUCTION of goods and services”. Such language-based representations of a FRAGMENTED, BEING-BASED SUBSTITUTE REALITY have, through INTELLECTUAL ABSTRACTION based language, TAKEN OVER as our OPERATIVE REALITY, OBSCURING the sense-experience affirmed reality of inclusion within the WAVE-FIELD, aka the transforming relational continuum.
This essay is a reminder of how WE WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS are trapping ourselves within a SUBSTITUTE REALITY based on the NAMING instantiated abstraction of BEING, whether ‘HUMAN BEINGS’, TOWN-BEINGS or NATION-BEINGS, giving rise to a FRAGMENTED pseudo-world of LOCAL, EXPLICIT ‘THINGS-THAT-BE’ which we animate with GRAMMAR, seemingly overcoming, with the abstraction of “BEING” the NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT nature of WAVE-FIELD reality. Modern physics as well as indigenous aboriginal cultures employ language architecture that does NOT attempt EXPLICIT REPRESENTATION but orients to relations that preserve the fluid essence of WAVE-FIELD reality, In the example; ‘There is TOWNING in the TRANSFORMING LANDSCAPE’, we see that there is NO RESORTING to any dependence on the abstraction of BEING, an abstraction that is introducing so much FRAGMENTATION based confusion within our WESTERN CULTURE social dynamic by OBSCURING our inclusion within the all-including WAVE-FIELD. BEING-based OBSCURANTISM now characterizes our WESTERN CULTURE language-animated OPERATIVE REALITY and its rising PSYCHO-SOCIAL FRAGMENTATION.
FOOTNOTE: QUANTUM LOGIC ‘heals’ the insulating empty space gap in BINARY LOGIC, between material beings, by acknowledging the natural primacy of the WAVE-FIELD which reduces ‘BEINGS’ to ‘CONDENSATIONS’, establishing the FEMALE ACCOMMODATING ‘FIELD’ container as having natural precedence over the CONDENSATION based CONTENT. This is not merely a BINARY LOGIC position swap between leader and follower since the ‘FIELD’ does not simply ‘CONTAIN’ but ‘INCLUDES’ the CONDENSATION, bringing forth the QUANTUM LOGIC ‘BOTH/AND’ relation and thus doing more than a simple BINARY LOGIC inverting of ‘which prevails over which’. The ‘LESS SIMPLE’ nature of the QUANTUM LOGIC BOTH/AND relation exposes the shortfall in the BINARY LOGIC based concept of ‘BEING’ and elaborates on Nietzsche’s critique of the concept of ‘BEING’. ‘BEING’ is OBSCURANTIST in that it introduces simple BINARY LOGIC into representations of WAVE-FIELD phenomena where LESS SIMPLE QUANTUM LOGIC is required.
QUANTUM LOGIC ‘HEALS’ the insulating empty space gap in BINARY LOGIC, between material ‘BEINGS’. Acknowledging the natural primacy of the WAVE-FIELD reduces ‘BEINGS’ to ‘CONDENSATIONS’, establishing the FEMALE ACCOMMODATING ‘FIELD’ CONTAINER as having natural precedence over the CONDENSATION based CONTENT that is construed as ‘INDEPENDENT MATERIAL BEING in WESTERN CULTURE language representations.

This note is a short summary of philosophical investigation findings in regard to FRAGMENTATION in WESTERN CULTURE psycho-physical intercourse.
These investigations reveal that while our sense-experience reality is WAVE-FIELD aware, our WESTERN CULTURE LANGUAGE ARCHITECTURE formulates representations by BREAKING THE WAVE-FIELD experience DOWN into FEMALE (nonlocal and implicit) and MALE (local and explicit) CONJUGATES and then DISCARDING THE FEMALE CONJUGATE so that our WESTERN CULTURE “COMMON AVERAGE EUROPEAN LANGUAGE” (Whorf’s classification) employs the one-sided MALE ASSERTING CONJUGATE of the WAVE-FIELD ‘on its own’ (i.e. the local and explicit conjugate only, ignoring the nonlocal and implicit female conjugate). This produces language-based REPRESENTATIONS of the one-sided MALE-ASSERTING type such as “the TOWN is GROWING”
Again (for emphasis), this one-sided MALE-ASSERTING representation DROPS OUT the FEMALE-ACCOMMODATING WAVE-FIELD CONJUGATE (the nonlocal implicit female conjugate). The SHORTFALL in our Common Average European language representations inspired David Bohm’s effort to develop a ‘Rheomode’ language’ which kept the full FEMALE-MALE WAVE-FIELD STRUCTURE INTACT; … a language development that Bohm later discovered had already been achieved by indigenous aboriginal cultures in their language development, yielding a language capable of the full FEMALE-MALE WAVE-FIELD composite as in the example; “THERE IS TOWNING IN THE TRANSFORMING LANDSCAPE”.
NOTE THAT the ANDROGYNOUS topology of the WAVE-FIELD is found in basic dynamical structures in nature such as INHALING (female accommodating) and EXHALING (male-asserting). This most basic natural dynamic seems to give way in the WESTERN CULTURE to the KNOW-IT-ALL ‘BLOWHARD’ who reaches a point where further learning ceases and the one-sided flow of ‘hot air’ dominates.
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.
The key point in this note is that the ANDROGYNOUS relation in nature IS THE WAVE-FIELD REALITY, which WESTERN CULTURE reduces to the MALE-ASSERTING ONLY, CASTING OUT FEMALE ACCOMMODATING and SUBSTITUTING ABSOLUTE EMPTY SPACE.
Our Common Average European language architecture, while DROPPING OUT THE FEMALE-ACCOMMODATING CONJUGATE, incorporates the ABSTRACTIONS of BEING (from NAMING) and LOCAL AUTHORING (from the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR), which support FRAGMENTATION in the architectural foundation as in ‘the TOWN is GROWING, DEVELOPING, PRODUCING’. Such representations contrast with the flow-based Rheomode, the indigenous aboriginal languages and the language architecture variants used by Taoists/Buddhists and Advaita Vedanta adherents, all of which employ the full FEMALE-MALE CONJUGATE WAVE-FIELD representations as in ‘There is TOWNING in the TRANSFORMING LANDSCAPE’.
As Vygotsky (‘Thought and Language’) has shown, in contradicting the view of Piaget, the spontaneous/implicit and the deliberate/explicit are conjugate aspects of ONE (WAVE-FIELD) system. Piaget’s view follows the general WESTERN CULTURE VIEW which considers the LOCAL and EXPLICIT representation to be sufficient. This has become the ‘operative attitude’ in WESTERN CULTURE LANGUAGE AND THOUGHT DYNAMICS and it is the SOURCE OF FRAGMENTATION and mistaken belief in the concepts of BEING and LOCAL AUTHORING.
In other words, the UNITY of BOTH the SPONTANEOUS/IMPLICIT (FEMALE ACCOMMODATING CONJUGATE) AND the SCIENTIFIC/EXPLICIT (MALE-ASSERTING CONJUGATE) in a seamless ANDROGYNOUS UNION is the basic WAVE-FIELD nature of reality and it is only our LANGUAGE based attempt at REPRESENTATION wherein we “RESORT TO” the SPLITTING into the FEMALE ACCOMMODATING and the MALE ASSERTING. Bohm’s ‘Rheomode’ and the indigenous aboriginal languages ACKNOWLEDGE the ANDROGYNOUS UNION of FEMALE AND MALE in WAVE-FIELD reality and Bohm’s WARNING on FRAGMENTATION points IMPLICITLY to PIAGET’S MISTAKE, the mistake incorporated in WESTERN CULTURE LANGUAGE ARCHITECTURE IN GENERAL, of the DROP-OUT of the FEMALE ACCOMMODATING CONJUGATE in our WESTERN CULTURE Common Average European language architecture.
Our WESTERN CULTURE PENCHANT for the SIMPLE and EXPLICIT has contributed to our persisting use of LANGUAGE ARCHITECTURE which REDUCES WAVE-FIELD reality to a ONE-SIDED MALE ASSERTING FRAGMENTATION based “SUBSTITUTE REALITY” which we WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS are problematically employing as our OPERATIVE REALITY. THIS IS THE SOURCE OF FRAGMENTATION
FRAGMENTATION IS NOW VERY WIDESPREAD, NOT ONLY THROUGHOUT SOCIETY, BUT ALSO IN EACH INDIVIDUAL – David Bohm
