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”.
We have BINARY LOGIC and we have QUANTUM LOGIC and we can capture our impressions of REALITY using EITHER.
BINARY LOGIC is inherently ambiguous with respect to its deploying in representing natural phenomena; e.g. if we use MALE ASSERTING to say the HURRICANE is STIRRING up the ATMOSPHERE, we IMPLY, as a kind of GHOST possibility, the FEMALE INDUCTIVE conjugate, that the ATMOSPHERE is stirring up the HURRICANE.
This conjugate splitting of reality into Male and Female ambiguity arises from the incapacity of NAMING and GRAMMAR based language architecture to capture SPHERICAL SPACE reality, our sense-experience reality of inclusion in the WAVE-FIELD, the transforming relational continuum, reality as understood in Modern physics.
Our visual sensing is easily and quickly given representation in terms of LOCAL, EXPLICIT FORMS (its not the forms which are LOCAL and EXPLICIT but our REPRESENTATIONS of them) which can either be CLOSED as in MALE-ASSERTING (e.g. the TOWN is GROWING, .. or FEMALE-ACCOMMODATING (e.g. the WILDERNESS is SHRINKING). The OPTION to split our REPRESENTATION OF REALITY into TWO CONJUGAL POLAR OPPOSITES opens up AMBIGUITY in the language we use to share our experiences of reality and thus complicates the challenge of coming to some common understanding of the reality we share inclusion in. While the WESTERN CULTURE unwritten rule is to employ the MALE-ASSERTIVE branch of the BIPOLAR optional representation of reality, the polar opposite option of the FEMALE ACCOMMODATING reality representing option is also an option and has a presence like a loose cannon on a ship’s deck, making unexpected interventions in the language based representation process.
This ambiguity arises only in our WESTERN CULTURE because we employ language architecture that reduces our experience of inclusion in TRANSFORMATION to the DOUBLE ERROR terms of NAMING and GRAMMAR wherein we experience reality (or try to) in terms of NAMING-given LOCAL THINGS-IN-THEMSELVES with GRAMMAR-given powers of AUTHORING actions and development. This scheme SPLITS “our language based representation of reality (the transforming relational continuum aka the WAVE-FIELD aka the TAO, into TWO BINARY LOGIC based CONJUGATES we call MATTER and SPACE and in expressing them with BINARY LOGIC, we define them as MUTUALLY EXCLUSIVE of one another, whereupon the AMBIGUITY arises as to which one is in the ‘DRIVER’S SEAT’? We are left with an open choice of “EITHER” the HURRICANE stir up the ATMOSPHERE? ….”OR” the ATMOSPHERE stirs up the HURRICANE. This “BINARY LOGIC AMBIGUITY” is inescapable WHEN we INSIST upon a language architecture that REDUCES our REPRESENTATION of reality to terms that are LOCAL and EXPLICIT (MECHANISTIC) instead of following the practice of the EAST and Modern physics where language architecture must be able to deal with the FLUID and thus NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT nature of the transforming relational continuum as being a basic feature of reality.
So, it is WORTH KEEPING MIND that the AMBIGUOUS OPTION of MALE-ASSERTIVE and FEMALE-ACCOMMODATIVE “REPRESENTATION APPROACHES” for language based expression of “REALITY” ONLY EMERGE when we insist on a language design architecture that embodies a reduction to the LOCAL and EXPLICIT. In those language architectures that preserve the fluid nature of the TRANSFORMING RELATIONAL CONTINUUM, the TROUBLESOME AMBIGUITY DOES NOT ARISE. And I say ‘TROUBLESOME AMBIGUITY’ because this undeclared CHOICE of reality representations really does throw a wrench into the pursuit of coming to an common understanding of the transforming relational continuum we share inclusion in. While some of us are, for example, assuming that the HURRICANE is stirring up the ATMOSPHERE (the Male-Assertive reality option), some (others) of us are assuming that the ATMOSPHERE is stirring up the HURRICANE (the Female-Inductive reality option.
This split manifests in the polarized division between CONSERVATIVE and LIBERAL since the former believe that the INDIVIDUAL is the ASSERTIVE AUTHOR of organized actions and developments while the latter believe that the SOCIAL COLLECTIVE is the INDUCTIVE AUTHOR of organized actions and developments.
The MYTH of the PATHOGEN derives from USING BINARY LOGIC to reduce RELATIONAL IMBALANCE to POLAR OPPOSITION.0
The PATHOGEN is BINARY LOGIC and the REBALANCER is QUANTUM LOGIC
I know that many if not MOST people have ‘faith’ in VACCINES.
The APPARENT success of VACCINES is like the APPARENT SUCCESS of POLICE in dealing with APPARENT ‘PATHOGENS’
There is a deeper understanding upstream from our BINARY LOGIC.
If the gap between RICH and POOR becomes large, it induces REBALANCERS which are initially called PATHOGENS (CRIMINALS, ROBBERS) but if the GAP between RICH and POOR continues to build to huge levels, there may be REVOLUTION which is a radical REBALANCER which lowers the TENSIONS of IMBALANCE which is the amplifying the rate of emergence of REBALANCERS which are popularly identified as PATHOGENS.
AUTHOR’s PREFACE: There is no way to DIRECTLY capture a REPRESENTATION of REALITY, in this COMMON AVERAGE EUROPEAN (CAE) LANGUAGE (as Benjamin Whorf calls it) that I am herewith using. This is because REALITY is inclusion in TRANSFORMATION and TRANSFORMATION is NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT while our CAE languages are archtiected for delivering representations in terms of the LOCAL and EXPLICIT. Thus while the REALITY of TRANSFORMATION is NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT (which is why indigenous aboriginal language architectures employ a relational architecture which allows inference of the NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT), our WESTERN CULTURE LANGUAGE based REPRESENTATIONS are not ‘OF REALITY’ but are REPRESENTATIONS of a SUBSTITUTE REALITY based on the LOCAL and EXPLICIT. Our WESTERN CULTURE language based representations are constructions of SUBSTITUTE REALITIES which “ARE” LOCAL and EXPLICIT. It should therefore be kept in mind by the reader, that while I am writing this essay in a CAE LANGUAGE ARCHITECTURE, I am constrained by this language to representations that have a LOCAL and EXPLICIT BASE but which may be used to INFER the NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT as is the basis of TRANSFORMATION. For example, if I employ specific statements based on the LOCAL and EXPLICIT (which is all this CAE LANGUAGE ALLOWS as its ‘base-case’ means of representation, I will only be using this as an expedient for developing the relational inference necessary for capturing TRANSFORMATION with is NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT. Thus, if I say ‘the TOWN is GROWING’, I am intending, by inference, that ‘the LANDSCAPE is TRANSFORMING.
We WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS have constructed a whole SUBSTITUTE REALITY that is based on the LOCAL and EXPLICIT from which we COULD INFER the NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT sense-experience-affirmed REALITY of TRANSFORMATION, … but our habit has been to employ the REDUCED-TO-LOCAL-AND-EXPLICIT “SUBSTITUTE REALITY” which is a PROBLEM. As Bohm and Nietzsche point out, it is a problem that is DRIVING us WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS CRAZY by FRAGMENTING REALITY with the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR. When we say ‘the TOWN is GROWING, our SENSE-EXPERIENCE-REALITY is that ‘the LANDSCAPE is TRANSFORMING’ which implies QUANTUM LOGIC wherein FIGURE-and-GROUND-are-ONE (the TOWN and the surrounding LANDSCAPE are ONE). By using the term GROW, engender with our language a SUBSTITUTE REALITY based on the LOCAL and EXPLICIT and ‘forget about’ our sense-experience REALITY of inclusion in TRANSFORMATION which is NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT.
Sine I am using the CAE language, ENGLISH, the reader may keep in mind that the REALITY I am speaking of, albeit with terms that ‘SOUND’ LOCAL and EXPLCIT such as ‘the HUMAN BEING’ are employed with a matrix of relations such that the TAKE-AWAY is purely relational as is necessary for capturing reality that is TRANSFORMATION BASED. With this comment, I am more or less replicating what Wittgenstein is saying as follows;
6.54 My propositions are elucidatory in this way: he who understands me finally recognizes them as senseless, when he has climbed out through them, on them, over them. (He must so to speak throw away the ladder, after he has climbed up on it.)
He must surmount these propositions; then he sees the world rightly.
7.0 Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one must be silent. (“Wovon man nicht sprechen kann, darüber muss man schweigen”),
–Wittgenstein, Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus
This AUTHOR’s PREFACE is just to point out to the reader that while inclusion in TRANSFORMATION is our sense-experience, our LANGUAGE-based representation in terms of the LOCAL and EXPLICIT gives representations of a CONSTRUCTION based SUBSTITUTE REALITY that is good only for INFERENCE even though we WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS are making the major mistake of employing it as our OPERATIVE REALITY. By our ‘closing our mind to the reality that there is no such thing as a TOWN THAT IS GROWING and that we are the AUTHORS of this alleged GROWTH; i.e.our sense-experience affirms that the LANDSCAPE is TRANSFORMING and we are included in this TRANSFORMATION.
* * *
FORWARD: Since sense-experience reality is something that naturally precedes intellectual interpretation and language-based reality representation, it might be thought of as a kind of anchor that keeps our intellectual representations of reality from ‘drifting’ too far from the ‘basic sense-experience reality’. However, there is an abundance of language-based representations and interpretations and speculations and imaginings that may not be ‘grounded’ in sense experience, so that what we take to be ‘reality’ can become highly ‘speculative’. Rumors in the street can lead to people being lynched for crimes they did not commit, and much much more so that what ‘we take to be reality’ is subject to considerable error.
We WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS have a particular way of constructing a SUBSTITUTE REALITY that SIDESTEPS the INEFFABLE nature of the transforming relational continuum that we share inclusion in. This WESTERN CULTURE SUBSTITUTE REALITY approach differs from the language based reality representing approaches of indigenous aboriginal cultures in that we WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS employ FRAGMENTATION as a means of sidestepping the INEFFABLE nature of the transforming relational continuum whereas indigenous aboriginal language and EASTERN (Taoist/Buddhist and Advaita Vedanta) language architectures employ an approach where FRAGMENTING is only used in the intermediate step of constructing relational webs that, while they employ LOCAL FRAGMENTS, do so only in a preliminary manner for constructing webs of relations. For example, while the WESTERN CULTURE may use the word TOWN to impute a LOCALLY EXISTING THING-IN-ITSELF (FRAGMENT of REALITY) that can be empowered by GRAMMAR that imputes to it its own powers of AUTHORING actions and developments, the indigenous aboriginal culture employs verb-based language where TOWNING signifies a relational dynamic WITHIN THE TRANSFORMING RELATIONAL CONTINUUM in keeping with the sense-experience reality wherein EVERYTHING IS IN FLUX.
THE WESTERN CULTURE APPROACH TO REPRESENTING REALITY WITH LANGUAGE does not retain the innately fluid nature of sense experience reality but constructs a SUBSTITUTE REALITY that gives a FOUNDATIONAL ROLE to notional LOCAL THINGS-IN-THEMSELVES or FRAGMENTS of REALITY; for example, ‘the TOWN is GROWING’, rather than as in indigenous language based representation which gives the equivalent of TOWNING-in-the-TRANSFORMING LANDSCAPE, retaining the understanding as in WAVE-FIELD dynamics that ‘everything is in flux’. In this case, QUANTUM LOGIC where FIGURE-and-GROUND-are-ONE remains prevalent and there is no ‘step down’ to a BINARY LOGIC based SUBSTITUTE REALITY where FIGURE-and-GROUND-are TWO.
The WESTERN CULTURE APPROACH to LANGUAGE based REPRESENTATION is cultivating a LOCK-IN to BINARY LOGIC which is the source of psychological FRAGMENTATION. That our WESTERN CULTURE social collective is experiencing the continuing advancement of EGO-based FRAGMENTATION is the warning message of both David Bohm and Friedrich Nietzsche.

… Western Indusrial Society… 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 …” – Martine Dodds-Taljard, systems scientist.
We WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS have architected language NOT from the point of view of our being included in the transforming relational continuum, but from the point of view of a VOYEUR OBSERVER of REALITY which PSYCHOLOGICALLY SPLITS OUT THE OBSERVER FROM THE OBSERVED. As Nietzsche points out, this VOYEUR approach introduces a BINARY LOGIC division between the OBSERVER and the OBSERVED wherein we conceive of the OBSERVED as the LOCAL AUTHOR of its own actions and development.
The one-sided MALE-ASSERTIVE concepts of GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT and PRODUCTION derive from the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR (e.g. “The AVALANCHE came crashing down the mountain, destroying the village below”). What is missing is the HOLE that was opened in the side of the mountain and the understanding that the opening of the hole (the FEMALE ACCOMMODATING) together with the MALE ASSERTING constitute TRANSFORMATION). Meanwhile the psychological abstraction of RATIO introduces the ONE-SIDED MALE-ASSERTIVE concept of RATIO aka REASON as implies LOCAL AUTHORING (i.e. where some LOCAL BEING THING is growing LARGER)
“Nothing indeed has exercised a more simple power of persuasion hitherto than the error of Being, as it was formulated by the Eleatics for instance: in its favour are every word and every sentence that we utter!—Even the opponents of the Eleatics succumbed to the seductive powers of their concept of Being. Among others there was Democritus in his discovery of the atom. “Reason” in language!—oh what a deceptive old witch it has been! I fear we shall never be rid of God, so long as we still believe in grammar.” —Nietzsche, “Twilight of the Idols, or, How to Philosophize with a Hammer”
