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.
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
The “RUSSIAN INVASION of the UKRAINE” passes over the more BASIC PROBLEM OF FRAGMENTATION INTO “INDEPENDENT NATIONS”0
The NORMAL WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENT is NOT going to get the DEEPER MESSAGE in this note (without a special effort) because we WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS have been psychologically conditioned to believe in an ABSTRACT PSEUDO-REALITY featuring the INDEPENDENT NATION. THERE ARE NO ‘INDEPENDENT NATIONS’ in THE TRANSFORMING RELATIONAL CONTINUUM aka the WAVE-FIELD aka the Tao. The REJECTION of the EXISTENCE OF THE INDEPENDENT NATION is NECESSARY for one to be ABLE TO SEE/UNDERSTAND the REAL REALITY of our inclusion in the transforming relational continuum aka the WAVE-FIELD and the Tao. The point is the MODERN CULTURAL CONDITIONING that would have us believe in the INDEPENDENT NATION, while the EGO can’t let go ot it, is ABSTRACTION based on the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR which IMPLIES (A) the EXISTENCE OF THE LOCAL NATION and (B) ITS OWN GRAMMAR-GIVEN LOCAL POWERS OF AUTHORING ACTIONS AND DEVELOPMENT. The concept of the INDEPENDENT NATION, embellished by the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR, has us THINKING (WRONGLY) in terms of the INDEPENDENT NATION with its OWN POWERS OF LOCAL AUTHORING of actions and developments.
The ISSUE concerning RUSSIA’s rejection of the INDEPENDENT NATION status of the UKRAINE, HAS ROOTS WHICH GO MUCH DEEPER AND QUESTION THE LEGITIMACY OF THE VERY CONCEPT OF “THE INDEPENDENT NATION”. If
If WE CONFINE OUR INQUIRY TO THE QUESTION OF THE LEGITIMACY OF THE UKRAINE’S CLAIM TO SOVEREIGN NATION STATUS, THERE WE SHALL BE MISSING THE NEEDED INQUIRY THAT WILL EXPOSE THE ILLEGITIMACY OF THE CONCEPT OF THE SOVEREIGN STATE..

It is common for readers to ACCEPT THE NOTION OF THE INDEPENDENT NATION as if it were REALITY (which it is NOT) which leads to social FRAGMENTATION through belief in the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR which implies LOCAL AUTHORING of actions and development (e.g. on the part of the so-called “INDEPENDENT NATION”).
The concept of the ‘INDEPENDENT NATION’ is DELUSION which has nevertheless come to play A FOUNDATIONAL ROLE in our GLOBAL APPROACH to CONCEPTUALIZING “REALITY”, or more aptly, ‘SUBSTITUTE REALITY’. Our GLOBALLY POPULAR ‘OPERATIVE REALITY’ is this DOUBLE ERROR based SUBSTITUTE REALITY featuring INDEPENDENT NATIONS as LOCAL ACTION and DEVELOPMENT AUTHORING AGENTS. However, our sense-experience reality is of our inclusion in ONE transforming relational continuum wherein THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS AN ‘INDEPENDENT NATION’. Modern physics and systems sciences have pointed this out but the HABIT of constructing SUBSTITUTE REALITIES incorporating the ABSTRACTION of INDEPENDENT NATIONS continues to infuse the ERRONEOUS notion of “INDEPENDENT NATIONS” into the MODERN PSYCHE, inducing ARTIFICIAL FRAGMENTATION and UNNECESSARY CONFLICT.
The UNCRITICAL acceptance of the CONCEPT of the INDEPENDENT NATION succeeds because of the popularity of the EGO inflation deriving from the ERRONEOUS sense of LOCAL AUTHORING implied by the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR that comes bundled in with that ABSTRACTION of the INDEPENDENT NATION.
The QUESTION IS “NOT” … “DOES THE UKRAINE QUALIFY AS A LEGITIMATE “INDEPENDENT NATION”?. THE QUESTION IS INSTEAD: HOW HAVE WE BEEN HOODWINKED INTO ACCEPTING THE UNREAL ABSTRACTION OF “THE INDEPENDENT NATION”, being as how we live “in a world characterized by global interconnectedness and mutual interdependence?
A fixed lattice-work of INDEPENDENT NATION grid-cells may be laid over the global interconnectedness and mutual interdependence so that new developments may be labelled according to their grid-cell of emergence. The fact remains that while those grid cells signify INDEPENDENT NATIONS, this does not mean that developments that emerge through them derive from them’ since we live ”in a world characterized by global interconnectedness and mutual interdependence.”. In KORZYBSKI’s terms; ‘the map is not the territory”

NATIONALISM, the now GLOBAL game of PRETENDING the “INDEPENDENCE” of “NATIONS” stems from the ABSTRACTION of the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR as Nietzsche has pointed out.
If we choose to OVERLOOK THE SCHIZOPHRENIA and PARANOIA in our modern GLOBAL CULTURE that, as Bohm and Nietzsche both point out, is the source of FRAGMENTATION that is both PSYCHOLOGICAL and PHYSICAL and NATIONALISM is part of it.
The battle over the STATUS of the UKRAINE stems from the ABSTRACT PROMOTION OF FRAGMENTATION by way of NATIONALISM.
There is no such thing as an INDEPENDENT NATION. The FRAGMENTATION into NATIONS is not grounded in our sense-experience, it is ABSTRACTION that is popularized ONLY by groups of people coming together and AGREEING TO SUPPORT THE UNREAL ABSTRACTION OF NAMING-BASED INDEPENDENT NATIONS. This is a crazy intellectual abstraction based idea that breeds WARS.
Sentient forms in nature do not participate in this ABSTRACT CREATION OF IMAGINARY “INDEPENDENT NATIONS” or “INDPENDENT BEINGS” of any type. Indigenous aboriginals DO NOT PARTICIPATE in the ABSTRTACT CREATION OF IMAGINARY “INDEPENDENT FRAGMENTS” of SPACE that are DEFINED by IMAGINARY BOUNDARY LINES. This inventing of INDEPENDENT STATES FRAGMENTS THE PSYCHE and from there it FRAGMENTS the social collective.
FRAGMENTATION is ILLUSION. We live within a transforming relational continuum where FRAGMENTATION DOES NOT EXIST other than in the LANGUAGE STIMULATED ABSTRACTIONS OF THE PSYCHE. HERE’s HOW THIS FRAGMENTATION HAPPENS,
-1-A social collective invents a name such as UKRAINE and associates it with a GEOMETRIC (imaginary line based) CLOSED FIGURE superimposed on a MAP based REPRESENTATION of the EARTH. This FRAGMENTING of the SURFACE AREA of he earth is PURELY AND SOLELY IMAGINARY IN ITS FOUNDATIONAL ASPECT and the GEOMETRIC AREAL FORMS are simply DECLARED TO EXIST and this is BACKUP UP by FORCE OF ARMS of the SUPPORTERS who are DEFINING the AREA and DECLARING IT TO BE SOMETHING that REALLY EXISTS.
-2- The EXISTENCE of these FRAGMENTED land areas is something that is INVENTED BY INTELLECTUAL DECLARATION and is sustained by FORCE by the SUPPORTERS who organizing POLICING INFRASTRUCTURE to SECURE the IMAGINARY FRAGMENTATION that they have INTELLECTUALLY INVENTED. There is NO OTHER BASIS FOR THE EXISTENCE OF INDEPENDENT FRAGMENTS than INTELLECTUAL ABSTRACTION, but once many people SWEAR OATHS OF ALLEGIEANCE to COMMIT THEIR LIVES TO THE DEFENCE OF THE EXISTENCE OF THE IMAGINARY “INDEPENDENT FRAGMENTS”, we have the system that is now in place that we refer to as NATIONALISM. It is established by BUTE FORCE as we know from the wars between European COLONIZERS who have been imposing this system around the globe and indigenous peoples who have never agreed to put such INTELLECTUAL ABSTRACT FRAGMENTATION into an unnatural precedence over sense-experience of inclusion in A SENSE EXPERIENCE REALITY OF INCLUSION IN A WORLD CHARACTERIZED BY GLOBAL INTERCONNECTEDNESS AND MUTUAL INTERDEPENDENCE.
-3- The problem of the UKRAINE begins with the problem of INTELLECTUAL FRAGMNTING of our sense-experience of INCLUSION IN A WORLD CHARACTERIZED BY GLOBAL INTERCONNECTION AND MUTUAL INTERDEPENDENCE as is the fining of ‘systems scientists’ and as is the finding of indigenous aboriginals and ANYONE who opts for the NATURAL understanding of the world wherein our sense-experience is kept in a natural precedence over our intellectual abstraction. As David Bohm and Nietzsche have pointed out, LANGUAGE of a certain type has given us the habit of construction SUBSTITUTE REALITIES based on BINARY LOGIC. This SUBSTITUTE REALITIES FEATURE the SPLITTING APART of FIGURE and GROUND using BINARY LOGIC by way of the DOUBLE ERROR (Nietzsche) of NAMING and GRAMMAR. Once we popularize language usage such as POLAND is GROWING in POPULATION and is continuing to advance in its DEVELOPMENT and PRODUCTION of goods and services, this “DOUBLE ERROR OF NAMING AND GRAMMAR” inserts into the INTELLECT, the MISTAKEN CONCEPT OF “LOCAL AUTHORING” of actions and development. Thus the language based popular usage of POLAND does this and that or ‘the UKRAINE does this and that’ builds a matrix of related propositions that impute support for the LOCAL EXISTENCE and LOCAL AUTHORING POWER of the IMAGINED ENTITY associated with the NAME in the DOUBLE ERROR combination of NAMING and GRAMMAR; e.g. “The TOWN is GROWING, DEVELOPING and PRODUCING goods and services” is a DOUBLE ERROR based SUBSTITUTE REALITY that takes shape IN THE INTELLECTUALIZING MIND even though the world of our sense-experience continues to be one of inclusion in the transforming relational continuum.
-4- The UKRAINE DOES NOT EXIST. The notion of its LOCAL EXISTENCE of a NATION derives from the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR and THE NATION takes on a notional LOCAL EXISTENCE by popular usage of this NAMING and GRAMMAR based (DOUBLE ERROR BASED) construction of an INTELLECTUAL ABSTRACTION BASED SUBSITUTE REALITY. In other words, the NATION OF POLAND (or etc.) ONLY EXISTS IN THE LANGUAGE-STIMULTATED INTELLECTUAL ABSTRACTING MIND. This technique of INVENTING NATIONS with notional LOCAL AUTHORING POWERS using the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR is unique to the COMMON AVERAGE EUROPEAN LANGUAGE ARCHITECTURES (which includes the RUSSIAN language) and DOES NOT INCLUDE indigenous aboriginals whose language is FLOW BASED and does NOT give itself up to the trickery of FRAGMENTATION by way of the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR. For example, Bohm’s RHEOMODE language was designed to AVOID FRAGMENTATION and the indigenous aboriginal languages also have this design, thus, for example, one would say the equivalent of THERE IS TOWNING IN THE TRANSFORMING LANDSCAPE, where WE, with our Common Average European LANGUAGE ARCHITECTURE would say ‘the TOWN is GROWING, DEVELOPING and PRODUCING products and services, IMPLYING LOCAL AUTHORING POWERS, which, as already noted, the systems scientists have exposed as DELUSION since our sense-experience affirms OUR SENSE EXPERIENCE REALITY OF INCLUSION IN A WORLD CHARACTERIZED BY GLOBAL INTERCONNECTEDNESS AND MUTUAL INTERDEPENDENCE.
