The PRIMARY FINDING of my philosophical researching is that while we are inclusions within a WAVE-FIELD CONTINUUM, our WESTERN CULTURE LANGUAGE ARCHITECTURE is REDUCTIONIST and we set about to TRYING to explain ourselves by breaking things down into the LCOAL AND EXPLICIT even though the UNDERSTANDING that we seek to share is WAVE-FIELD based which means it is RELATIONAL, NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT. This problem is like trying to share an awareness of the LANDSCAPE by way of describing the TOWNS and other LOCAL FEATURES. This is the REDUCTIONIST approach which starts by DIFFERENTIATING THINGS and FOLLOWING UP with INTEGRATION.
IT DOESN’T WORK, NOT EVEN IN MATHEMATICS where we end up having to refer to a CONSTANT OF INTEGRATION in which we package all the bits that FELL OUT in the process of DIFFERENTIATION in one AMORPHOUS CONSTANT.
In a LANDSCAPE ‘pock-marked’ with TOWNS, if one describes the TOWNS, their GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT and PRODUCTION of products as in the REDUCTIONIST approach, we find ourselves UNABLE TO PUT HUMPTY DUMPTY back together again and we are left with a multiplicity of MAPS of the TOWNS and these MAPS are FLATSPACE things based on the LOCAL and EXPLICIT which is what our common MAPPING approach delivers, a FLAT-SPACE REDUCTION of a spherical space reality. In the SPHERICAL SPACE of our sense-experience of inclusion therein, EVERYTHING IS RELATED and while RELATIONS can communicate the NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT as is the make-up of the TRANSFORMING RELATIONAL CONTINUUM of our sense experience of inclusion therein, … we WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS have adopted as our standard, a LANGUAGE ARCHITECTURE that REDUCES the NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT WAVE-FIELD REALITY to a MULTIPLICITY OF FRAGMENTS which are LOCAL and EXPLICIT.
Korzybski makes the point that ‘the MAP is not the TERRITORY’ but in saying this he leaves us with the implication that THERE IS A TERRITORY rather than a transforming relational continuum. Wittgenstein address this problem, basically by suggesting that we develop understanding by way of a web of relations without any hard dependencies on ‘WHAT IS’ or ‘THINGS-THAT-BE’.
There is a truth in Schopenhauer’s view that philosophy is an organism, and that a book on philosophy, with a beginning and an end, is a sort of contradiction [Elsewhere Wittgenstein quotes Heraclitus “everything is in flux” on this same problem of being forced to capture a complex continuing dynamic by notional ‘parts’]. One difficulty with philosophy is that we lack a synoptic view. We encounter the kind of difficulty we should have with the geography of a country for which we had no map, or else a map of isolated bits. The country we are talking about is language, and the geography its grammar. We can walk about the country quite well, but when forced to make a map, we go wrong. A map will show different roads through the same country, any one of which we can take, though not two, just as in philosophy we must take up problems one by one though in fact each problem leads to a multitude of others. We must wait until we come round to the starting point before we can proceed to another section, that is, before we can either treat of the problem we first attacked or proceed to another. In philosophy matters are not simple enough for us to say ‘Let’s get a rough idea’, for we do not know the country except by knowing the connections between the roads. So I suggest repetition as a means of surveying the connections.” — Wittgenstein
THE FRAGMENTATION IS COMING FROM LANGUAGE; i.e. our WESTERN CULTURE COMMON AVERAGE EUROPEAN LANGUAGE ARCHITECTURE WHICH WE HAVE BASED ON THE LOCAL AND EXPLICIT, which lacks the capability of articulating the NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT
NOTA BENE! PROBLEM! We and everything are included in the all-including WAVE-FIELD which is NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT while our WESTERN CULTURE “Common Average European” LANGUAGE ARCHITECTURE is based on the LOCAL and EXPLICIT (e.g., ‘the TOWN is GROWING, DEVELOPING and PRODUCING products’, … “UNLIKE” the INDIGENOUS ABORIGINAL LANGUAGE ARCHITECTURE which is NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT (e.g., ‘There is TOWNING in the TRANSFORMING LANDSCAPE’).
Here, we can consider once again Korzybski’s observation that ‘the MAP is NOT the TERRITORY’ and we can UNDERSTAND it in the context of the ALL-INCLUDING WAVE-FIELD wherein EVERYTHING IS IN FLUX, so that our LANGUAGE ARCHITECTURE “SHOULD BE” capable of avoiding the LOCAL and EXPLICIT and developing representations that are NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT, as with a matrix of relations which avoid the HARDENING into LOCAL and EXPLICIT.
WESTERN CULTURE LANGUAGE MAKES FOUNDATIONAL USE OF THE LOCAL AND EXPLICIT: e.g. ‘the TOWN is GROWING, DEVELOPING and PRODUCING products’ (this implies LOCAL AUTHORING).
INDIGENOUS ABORIGINAL LANGUAGE MAKES FOUNDATIONAL USE OF THE NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT: e.g. ‘There is TOWNING in the TRANSFORMING LANDSCAPE’.
WESTERN CULTURE LANGUAGE BRINGS FORTH REPRESENTATIONS THAT ARE FRAGMENTS. That is the “PRICE” of the REDUCTION of REPRESENTATIONS to the LOCAL and EXPLICIT. Instead of ‘TOWNING IN THE TRANSFORMING LANDSCAPE’ where ‘EVERYTHING IS IN FLUX’ where FIGURE-and-GROUND are ONE, as in INDIGENOUS ABORIGINAL LANGUAGE BASED REPRESENTATION, … the WESTERN CULTURE LANGUAGE REPRESENTATION is captured as ‘The TOWN is GROWING, DEVELOPING and PRODUCING’ products, where the FIGURE (the TOWN) is SPLIT OUT OF THE TRANSFORMING LANDSCAPE and LINGUISTICALLY PRESENTED as a SEPARATE FRAGMENT “AS IF WITH ITS OWN LOCAL POWERS OF AUTHORING ACTIONS AND DEVELOPMENT”.
OK, we can ‘run through this once again, this time using “THE HUMAN” rather than “THE TOWN” and things will get PERSONAL since the options will now be the indigenous aboriginal NONLOCAL AND IMPLICIT language option of “HUMANING IN THE TRANSFORMING LANDSCAPE” versus the WESTERN CULTURE LOCAL AND EXPLICIT language option of “The HUMAN is GROWING, DEVELOPING and PRODUCING products”.

EVIDENTLY the LANGUAGE ARCHITECTURE we WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS have developed serves up REPRESENTATIONS of REALITY in LOCAL and EXPLICIT FRAGMENTS (which is no longer ‘reality’ but a fragmented SUBSTITUTE REALITY).
As Wittgenstein is saying, we can’t simply employ language that FRAGMENTS things and leave it at that, we must instead put the local and explicit fragments together in relational context;
“One difficulty with philosophy is that we lack a synoptic view. We encounter the kind of difficulty we should have with the geography of a country for which we had no map, or else a map of isolated bits.”
While PHILOSOPHY may be trying to bring the FRAGMENTS together, WESTERN CULTURE EGO uses language based DOUBLE ERRORS of NAMING and GRAMMAR to impute LOCAL AUTHORING of actions and developments which is the SOURCE OF FRAGMENTATION.
EVIDENTLY, FRAGMENTATION derives from our WESTERN CULTURE desire to focus in on the “LOCAL and EXPLICIT” which DOES NOT EXIST in the transforming relational continuum aka the WAVE-FIELD of our sense experience of inclusion therein wherein EVERYTHING IS IN FLUX.
THE LOCAL AND EXPLICIT is NOT sense-experience reality affirmable but INTELLECTUAL ABSTRACTION; i.e., our WESTERN CULTURE representations such as ‘the TOWN IS GROWING’ or the ‘HUMAN IS GROWING’ is a DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR that imputes the POWER OF LOCAL AUTHORING as Nietzsche points out which implies a new SUBSTITUTE REALITY where the GROWING TOWN or GROWING HUMAN is conceived of as being situated WITHIN AN ABSOLUTE EMPTY SPACE OF INFINITE EXTENT so that all we need concern ourselves with is THE FIGURE which has now been separated from the GROUND, so that we can observe “ITS” GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT and PRODUCTION of products, … since the ABSOLUTE EMPTY AND INFINITE CONTAINING SPACE IS NOT AN “ACTIVE PARTICIPANT” but which provides a PSYCHOLOGICALLY ‘workable venue’ for considering the dynamics of FIGURES without interference from a CONTAINING GROUND.
THIS IS A RECIPE FOR PSYCHOLOGICAL FRAGMENTATION in support of the notional REDUCTION of sense-experience reality (of inclusion in the all-including transforming relational continuum) to “LOCAL AND EXPLICIT FRAGMENTS OF QUOTE/UNQUOTE ‘REALITY’”.
WE WESTERN CULTURE HUMANS USE LANGUAGE-BASED REPRESENTATION TO APPLY THIS TO ‘OURSELVES’ which serves as the basis for a SUBSTITUTE REALITY wherein we can be the BIG-EGO INDEPENDENT BEINGS with GRAMMAR GIVEN POWERS OF LOCAL AUTHORING of actions and developments which, since this whole fantasizing system of abstractions is BINARY LOGIC based, can be EITHER GOOD or BAD, ALL OF THIS RESTING ON THE FOUNDATIONAL NOTION OF LOCAL AUTHORING which we CONSTRUCT with the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR, … which is a WESTERN CULTURE THING that fails to qualify as sense-experience affirmable reality, but which is sufficiently popular for the WESTERN CULTURE social collective to accept such DOUBLE ERROR LOCAL AUTHORING based SUBSTITUTE REALITY AS OUR (WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS) OPERATIVE REALITY.
WE WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS ARE A SOCIAL COLLECTIVE THAT OPERATES AS IF LOCAL AUTHORING WERE NOT JUST A COVENIENT WAY OF CONSTRUCTING SHAREABLE LINGUISTIC REPRESENTATION, of the type ‘the EARTH TURNS ROUND’ which COPERNICUS pointed out SIMPLIFIED our LANGUAGE based discourse, and of course, avoided the LESS SIMPLE reality of the EARTH being a CONDENSATIONS of the ALL-INCLUDING WAVE-FIELD which entails the LESS SIMPLE “QUANTUM LOGIC” instead of simple BINARY LOGIC as is all that’s needed when reduce the representation to a MATERIAL THING-IN-ITSELF with ITS OWN POWERS OF AUTHORING ACTIONS AND DEVELOPMENT that is exercising within a notional ABSOLUTE EMPTY SPACE OF INFINITE EXTENT.
LOCAL AUTHORING IS UNREAL AND FRAGMENTATIVE but we WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS are using it anyhow because IT IS GREAT FOR THE EGO and offers us a simple system for managing the dynamics of the social collective that is based on PURIFICATION wherein we REWARD the LOCAL AUTHORING OF BINARILY CLASSIFIED ‘GOOD’ actions and developments and PUNISH the LOCAL AUTHORING of BINARILY CLASSIFIED ‘BAD’ actions and developments.
THINK HOW MUCH SIMPLER THIS WESTERN CULTURE JUSTICE SYSTEM IS THAN THE INDIGENOUS BORIGINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM which has to deal with “mitakuye oyasin” everything is related, so that it becomes impossible to use the PURIFICATION approach since, while the LIGHTNING ROD who is the conduit for relational tensional buildups is IDENTIFIABLE, the LIGHTNING ROD is “NOT” the “AUTHOR”, the “AUTHOR” is the relational social matrix that, when it builds relational tensions, discharges those tensions through an expedient CONDUIT that is, meanwhile, NOT THE AUTHOR OF THE TENSIONAL BUILDUP that is the root source of the LIGHTNING BOLT, but the social relational CONDUIT through which the tension buildup generated within the relational matrix of the social collective is discharged.
The WESTERN CULTURE JUSTIC SYSTEM side-steps such relational complexity by declaring the LIGHTNING ROD that is ‘HOLDING THE SMOKING GUN’ to be the FULL AND SOLE LOCAL AUTHOR OF THE INJURIOUS or DEADLY ACTION or DEVELOPMENT. This is CONSISTENT with the WESTERN CULTURE’S GENERAL METHOD of IDENTIFYING AND GIVING CREDIT FOR AUTHORING OF ACTIONS AND DEVELOPMENTS USING THE DOUBLE ERROR OF NAMING AND GRAMMAR, rather than using the INDIGENOUS ABORIGINAL approach which assumes that WHAT THE WESTERN CULTURE ASSUMES IS THE “LOCAL AUTHOR” is nothing more than the CONDUIT through which TENSIONS accruing within the social relational community matrix find release.
This DIFFERENCE in LOGICAL ASSESSMENT OF THE SOURCE OF CONFLICT is the DIFFERENCE between BINARY LOGIC (the preferred logic of WESTERN CULURE) and QUANTUM LOGIC (the preferred logic of INDIGENOUS ABORIGINAL CULTURE, Taoism/Buddhism and Advaita Vedanta)
QUANTUM LOGIC is the BOTH/AND LOGIC OF THE INCLUDING MEDIUM. QUANTUM LOGIC is about BALANCE. For example, while we could use BINARY LOGIC to DIFFERENTIATE CULTIVATED LAND from WILDERNESS LANDS, there is a certain associated GESTALT quality that changes with the changing BALANCE in the PROPORTION of WILDERNESS to CULTIVATED LAND so that TALK ABOUT THE GROWTH OF THE ONE WITHOUT MENTION OF THE CONJUGATE IS LIKE A FLATSPACE OBSERVATION THAT FAILS TO CAPTURE THE “BALANCE” ASPECT THAT ASSOCIATES WITH THE ANDROGYNOUS NATURE OF THE WAVE-FIELD WE ARE INCLUDED IN. WAVE-FIELD SPACE is a SPHERICAL SPACE which has an ANDROGYNOUS BALANCE based QUALITY such that we are aware of the changing GESTALT associated with the CHANGING BALANCE, as for example, between CULTIVATED LAND and WILDERNESS LAND in the space on the surface of a sphere..
NOTA BENE: USERS OF BINARY LOGIC TEND TO ACCEPT THE SIMPLE BINARY LOGIC JUDGEMENTS AND EMPLOY THEM AS THEIR “OPERATIVE REALITY”, while the LESS SIMPLE BUT MORE REPRESENTATIVE OF SENSE-EXPERIENCE REALITY QUANTUM LOGIC UNDERSTANDING BECOMES THE SHUT-OUT VICTIM OF OBSCURANTISM AS THE SIMPLER BINARY LOGIC REPRESENTATION HOLDS SWAY IN THE LANGUAGE BASED REPRESENTATION USED AS THE OPERATIVE REALITY.
EXAMPLE: The THIN SKULL RULE: In this case, while SENSE EXPERIENCE may be SCREAMING OUT that we need to acknowledge the FEMALE ACCOMMODATING WAVE-FIELD CONJUGATE as the EGG-SHELL SKULL collapses and FULL AND SOLE CREDIT IS GIVEN TO THE FEEBLE PUNCH THAT HAS BEEN THROW, for the reason that MALE ASSERTING is ALL THAT’S ACCEPTED in WESTERN CULTURE LANGUAGE BASED REPRESENTATION since the tradition has been established to DUMMY OUT THE FEMALE ACCOMMODATING WAVE-FIELD CONJUGATE WITH AN ABSOLUTE EMPTY SPACE OF INFINTE EXTENT. WE WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS DID THIS IN ASTRONOMY AND IN DYNAMICS IN GENERAL; i.e. we introduced the language based simplification of an ABSOLUTE EMPTY SPACE CONTAINER TO SIMPLFIY OUR REPRESENTATION OF MATERIAL DYNAMICS. Meanwhile, the INDIGENOUS ABORIGINAL CULTURE DO NOT USE THIS SIMPLIFYING REMOVAL OF THE FEMALE ACCOMMODATING CONJUGATE AND ITS SUBSTITUTING WITH ABSOLUTE EMPTY AND INFINITE SPACE but use language captures the full ANDROGYNOUS WAVE-FIELD physics;
And just as our Copernicus said to us : It is more convenient to suppose the earth turns round, since thus the laws of astronomy are expressible in a much simpler language ; this one would say: It is more convenient to suppose the earth turns round, since thus the laws of mechanics are expressible in a much simpler language’. Henri Poincaré, ‘Science and Hypothesis’, Ch. VII Relative Motion and Absolute Motion
NOTA BENE: USING BINARY LOGIC IN LANGUAGE BASED REPRESENTATIONS GETS RID OF THE FEMALE ACCOMMODATING WAVE-FIELD CONJUGATE LEAVING ONLY THE MALE ASSERTING CONJUGATE TO CONSTRUCT A LANGUAGE BASED “OPERATIVE REALITY”.
THIS IS WHERE WESTERN CULTURE ‘EGO’ COMES FROM; i.e. from the LANGUAGE-INDUCED FALSE UNDERSTANDING of reality in the one-sided terms of MALE-ASSERTING ACTIONS AND DEVELOPMENTS, AS IF TRANSPIRING IN AN ABSOLUTE EMPTY AND INFINITE CONTAINING SPACE.
THIS IS WHAT WE WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS, since we continue to employ such one-sided MALE-ASSERTING ACTIONS AND DEVELOPMENT based ABSTRACTIONS as our OPERATIVE REALITY, continue to SUCCUMB TO; i.e. BELIEF in the SUBSTITUTE REALITY based on the DROPPING OUT of the FEMALE ACCOMMODATING WAVE-FIELD CONJUATE.
THE THIN SKULL RULE is just one instance of general pattern in WESTERN CULTURE which can be elaborated as follows;
“As a western culture adherent in good standing, if we wish to keep that good standing, we must limit our language-based explanations of phenomena to a one-sided male asserting action and development basis, shutting out the female conjugate which, if allowed, would elevate what we now hold to be passive and uninvolved empty space into a wave-field status that would be primary, demoting material actions and developments to secondary status. This must not be allowed since it complicates representations which our language has simplified and made to be exclusively male-asserting in nature. All of dynamics based on ‘growth, development and production now depend fully and solely on male-asserting action, as if transpiring in an absolute empty and infinite space. To acknowledge a female accommodating conjugate would weaken and confuse our representations which are not fully and solely male asserting based. The thin skull rule is an example. If we were to open up the Pandora’s box of allowing credit to be given to female accommodating, we would undermine the stability of our one-sided male-asserting only (substitute) reality representation scheme. Instead of local and explicit material structures, we would be opening the door to the nonlocal and implicit. The ‘skull’ and all material forms would in that case be seen as a “condensation of an all-including Wave-Field” which would mean that we could NO LONGER use the BINARY LOGIC simplification of material forms in empty space, which we have built into our Western Culture language and grammar architecture. If we open the door to the female accommodating conjugate, we open the door to the Wave-Field reality in which case our language must be upgraded to Quantum Logic capability wherein figure and ground are one; i.e., where the material figure is understood as a condensation of the wave-field ground.
WHEREVER WE ENCOUNTER PHENOMENA WHERE THE WAVE-FIELD STRUCTURE BECOMES TOO OBVIOUS which means that the BINARY LOGIC OVER-SIMPLICITY becomes TOO OBVIOUS, we shall need to UPGRADE our language based representation scheme. This was the reason for Bohm’s development of Rheomode, a relational language with a WAVE-FIELD CAPABLE ARCHITECTURE, whereupon he discovered that the Indigenous Aboriginal languages already possesses this ANDROGYNOUS capability (WAVE-FIELD capability).
CURRENTLY WE WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS ARE “STUCK!” with having popularized a BINARY LOGIC based style of linguistic representation so that we are, as the systems sciences framing puts it, “LOCKED IN BY HIGH SWITCHING COSTS” The ONE-SIDED MALE ASSERTING ONLY SUBSTITUTE REALITY has been a SOCIAL CUSTOMS and BEHAVIOUR SHAPER using the BINARY LOGIC tools of REWARDING AUTHORS OF GOOD WORKS and PUNISHING AUTHORS OF BAD WORKS, the ABSTRACTION of LOCAL AUTHORING deriving from the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR.
In spite of the explicit and direct critiques of David Bohm and Nietzsche and others , THERE IS A SEEMINLY UNSTOPPABLE PERSISTENCE of the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR based concept of LOCAL AUTHORING, and the related ABSTRACTIONS of the BINARY LOGICAL OPPOSITES of ‘LOCAL AUTHORING OF GOOD ACTIONS AND DEVELOPMENTS’ and ‘LOCAL AUTHORING OF BAD ACTIONS AND DEVELOPMENTS, which give rise to programs of REWARDING and PUNISHING on that basis.
This constitutes a HUGE ‘LOCKED IN BY HIGH SWITCHING COSTS’ IMPEDIMENT to SWITCHING from the over-simplistic BINARY LOGIC linguistic portrait of reality to the LESS SIMPLE QUANTUM LOGIC linguistic portrait of reality.
The WESTERN CULTURE DOMINATED WORLD DYNAMIC is, so to speak, UP SHIT CREEK WITHOUT A PADDLE, in that the PROBLEMATIC ISSUES THAT ARE RESULTING FROM THE OVER-SIMPLIFYING BINARY LOGIC BASED LANGUAGE ARCHITECTURE ARE BEYOND RESOLVING THROUGH REASONING EXPRESSED IN THAT LANGUAGE BECAUSE OF THE LIMITATIONS OF THAT LANGUAGE. WE NEED TO ACKNOWLEDGE THAT MUCH OF THE RHETORIC WE USE IN OUR WESTERN CULTURE CONVERSING SUFFERS FROM GOEDEL’S THEOREM INCOMPLETENESS. THAT IS, ALL OF OUR PROUD ACCOUNTS OF ACHIEVEMENTS IN THE AREAS OF ‘GROWTH’, ‘DEVELOPMENT’ AND ‘PRODUCTION’ of goods and services ARE NOT REAL! There is no such thing as ‘GROWTH’, ‘DEVELOPMENT’ and ‘PRODUCTION’, there is only TRANSFORMATION, the all-including TRANSFORMATION of life in the WAVE-FIELD as we would be aware of if we had a NON-SIMPLIFYING LANGUAGE that DIDN’T DUMB DOWN OUR REALITY to a one-sided MALE-ASSERTING ONLY SUBSTITUTE REALITY, and opened up our representations to a WAVE-FIELD AWARE LEVEL as is the case with INDIGENOUS ABORIGINAL languages.
To say that ‘THE TOWN IS GROWING’ is BINARY LOGIC based ABSTRACTION that constrains representations to ONE-SIDED MALE ASSERTING ACTIONS AND DEVELOPMENTS whereas to say that ‘THERE IS TOWNING IN THE TRANSFORMING LANDSCAPE’ is QUANTUM LOGIC based and that open up representations to ANDROGYNOUS TRANSFORMATION. I.E. ‘the TOWN does not GET BUILT IN THE VALLEY’, TOWNING is a terms describing TOWNING as a FEATURE OF THE TRANSFORMING VALLEY which is the QUANTUM LOGIC understanding rather than the BINARY LOGIC FRAGMENTING of TOWN and VALLEY such that developers of the TOWN do not have to mention ‘the VALLEY’ in discussing plans to ‘change the TOWN’.
EVIDENTLY, we WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS CONTINUE TO USE OUR COMMON AVERAGE EUROPEAN LANGUAGE in its BINARY LOGIC based mode where TOWNS GROW, so we say, as if they were independent of the TRANSFORMING LANDSCAPE/VALLEY they are included in.
WE NEED A NEW LANGUAGE, which was Bohm’s point with Rheomode, and Nietzsche simply pointed to the huge gap between our language and our sense-experience, but we WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS are STUCK because the problem with our language is that it is TOO SIMPLE since it breaks everything down into BINARY LOGIC which supports a dumbed down SUBSTITUTE REALITY that because it WORKS by simplifying representations of reality, DROPS US DOWN into a SIMPLIFIED SUBSTITUTE REALITY that we WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS have been PUBLICLY ACCEPTING AS THE OPERATIVE REALITY. As sense-experience capable individuals, WE KNOW BETTER, but what we have here is A SOLIDLY ESTABLISHED SUBSTITUTE REALITY BASED SYSTEM THAT IS LOCKED IN BY HIGH SWITCHING COSTS.
AT SOME LEVEL, WE KNOW THAT ‘NATIONS ARE NOT INDEPENDENT’ and that DECLARATIONS OF INDEPENDENCE don’t establish INDEPENDENCE, but that doesn’t stop the CRAZINESS of people acting on BELIEFS IN NATIONAL INDEPENDENCE which leads to FRAGMENTATION on a GLOBAL BASIS. The FRAGMENTATION happens through the PSYCHES of PEOPLE WHO BUY INTO SUCH ABSTRACTION (the indigenous aboriginals may be forced to comply as non-believers without much choice of drifting along with the believing masses).
SUBOPTIMIZATION follows form the BELIEF IN INDEPENDENCE;
“The above aphorism (The Name of the Devil is Suboptimization’), attributed to Kenneth Boulding, points to the inherent weakness characterizing the mindset and socio‐economic, political, educational and managerial practices of Western Industrial society as it developed over the past 300 years. It 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 …” — György Jaros and Martine Dodds-Taljaard (International Society of Systems Sciences)
SO, WE CONTINUE TO BE ‘LOCKED INTO THIS FRAGMENTATIVE MADNESS BY HIGH SWITCHING COSTS.
