MORE ON “We who are CONFUSING OURSELVES with LANGUAGE such as OMICRON, COVID and other ALLEGED PATHOGENS:
THE PITFALLS OF THOUGHT and LANGUAGE have been written about by Vygotsky (“Thought and Language”), Goedel (“Goedel’s Incompleteness Theorem”), Bohm (“Implicate Order”), Wittgenstein (Tractatus Logico Philosophicus”), Nietzsche (“Twilight of the Idols”) and others, … and the Pitfalls HAVEN’T GONE AWAY and, yes, we CONTINUE TO FALL INTO THEM.
Talking about PATHOGENS such as COVID screws us up. Bohm suggested that our WESTERN CULTURE use of language was infecting us with Schizophrenia and Paranoia, … and, yes, it can get scary when we WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS IMAGINE that there is a SELF-OTHER SPLIT and it is THE OTHER that is SCREWING US UP when it is really US who are SCRWING OURSELVS UP because that’s the way it HAS TO WORK because WE ARE INCLUDED in the WORLD WE ARE LOOKING OUT AT. There is NO SUBJECT-and-OBJECT SPLIT. As Schroedinger energetically insists; SUBJECT and OBJECT are ONLY ONE, as is he message of Modern physics and OUR OWN INTUITION.
And HOW DID WE FALL INTO THE TRAP OF FALLING OUT OF THAT UNDERSTANDING OF OUR INCLUSION IN THE WORLD WE ARE LOOKING OUT AT? WHERE DID THIS IMPRESSION COME FROM THAT WE, the SUBJECT, is SPLIT OUT of the OBJECT WORLD. Where did we get this CRAZY IDEA of DECLARING INDEPENDENCE?
Don’t look now, but there are a lot of US CRAZY WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS out there, waving flags and banging drums, announcing to the world (i.e. to ourselves) our own INDIVIDUAL INDEPENDENCE!
HOW CRAZY IS THAT?!
As the systems sciences have observed, IN SPITE OF THE ABUNDANCE OF EVIDENCE THAT WE ARE ALL INCLUDED IN A WEB OF INTERDEPENDENCIES, we continue to USE LANGUAGE to DECLARE OUR INDEPENDENCE and that’s the CRAZY talk that we CONTINUE TO WALK. First we DECLARE INDEPENDENCE (of COUNTRY, COMPANY, PERSON) and having “SETTLED THAT ISSUE”, we proceed to ACT UPON IT and PROMOTE “COMPETITION” AMONG our “DECLARED INDEPENDENT” UNITS, these “INDEPENDENT UNITS” being defined by “THE LANGUAGE AND GRAMMAR WE PUT TOGETHER”, backed up by some imaginary boundary lines and armed guards; … HEY BUDDY, … CAN YOU SEE THAT YOU ARE STEPPING OVER THE LINE FROM ONE INDEPENDENT NATION INTO ANOTHER INDEPENDENT NATION? HOW THE HELL ARE WE GOING TO MAKE THIS IMAGINARY SUBSTITUTE REALITY WORK IF EVERYONE IS GOING TO BEHAVE LIKE ANIMALS AND BIRDS AND JUST FOLLOW THEIR SENSES AND TOTALLY IGNORE OUR IMAGINARY BOUNDARY LINES? OBSERVING THESE BOUNDARIES ARE IMPORTANT BECAUSE THE PEOPLE INSIDE EACH OF THESE IMAGINARY LINE DEFINED INDEPENDENT REGIONS ARE COMPETING WITH ONE OTHER IN THE GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT AND PRODUCTION BEING AUTHORED BY OUR PARTICULAR “INDEPENDENT UNIT”, WHETHER NATIONAL, PERSONAL, OR PROPERLY ESTABLISHED AS AN INDEPENDENT ENTITY BY DULY EXECUTED FILING OF INCORPORATION PAPERS.
WHAT’S THAT YOU SAY; … THE SYSTEMS SCIENCES FOLKS SAY THAT THESE DECLARATIONS ARE IMAGINARY BULLSHIT THAT SIMPLY FRAGMENTS OUR WESTERN PSYCHES, INSERTING DIVISIONS IN OUR MIND THAT DON”T EXIST IN OUR SENSE-EXPERIENCE WORLD!
The Name of the Devil is Suboptimization’ (N.B. SUBOPTIMIZATION IS FRAGMENTATION).
“The above aphorism, 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)
NOW, WHO IS GOING TO WIN THIS ARGUMENT AS TO WHETHER THE “INDEPENDENCE” OF THE “SELF-DECLARED AS INDEPENDENT” NATION OR CORPORATION IS “REAL”?
THE ALTERNATIVE QUESTION IS; WHO HAS THE BEST WEAPONS AND FIREPOWER, THE “LOWLY” PEASANT WHOSE RESIDENCY ENTITLEMENT PERMISSION SLIP USED TO SAY “UPPER SLOBBOVIA” AND HAS BEEN REPLACED BY A RESIDENCY PERMISSION SLIP THAT NOW SAYS “LOWER SLOBBOVIA”, … WITH ITS OFFICIAL STAMPS AND THE PICTURE OF THE HONORABLE GREAT LEADER WAN SONG POO CERTIFYING ITS AUTHENTICITY.
* * *
Such talk may go over like a FART in a CHURCH SERVICE, but we can’t leave it all up to the Kurt Goedel’s and the David Bohm’s to get the message up that our talked up “REALITY” is at best INCOMPLETE and it goes downhill from there. Should we say that the claim of notable ACHIEVEMENTS of the UNITED STATES is a proposition that is INCOMPLETE because there is no such thing as an INDEPENDENT NATION with “ITS OWN POWERS OF AUTHORING ACTIONS AND DEVELOPMENT”, … that being a CLASSIC INSTANCE of the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR, pointed out by Nietzsche?
Or should we keep our mouths shut, because there are dues to be paid for ‘getting honest’ in this WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENT social collective, as is suggested by the WESTERN CULTURE psychiatrist R.D. Laing, who claims that our WESTERN CULTURE conceptualizing of REALITY is NOT REALITY but a MANUFACTURED SUBSTITUTE REALITY where instead of acknowledging our inclusion in the transforming relational continuum, we make ourselves out (and whatever we embellish with “ITS OWN NAME”) as HAVING ITS OWN POWERS OF LOCAL AUTHORING OF ACTIONS AND DEVELOPMENT”. Look, if we don’t play along with this game, WE WON’T GET PAID AND THUS FED AND SHELTERED in accordance with this substitute reality scheme.
They are playing a game. They are playing at not playing a game. If I show them I see they are, I shall break the rules and they will punish me. I must play their game, of not seeing I see the game.” D. Laing – ‘Knots’
JUST TELL US WHEN TO STAND UP AND START SINGING THE ANTHEM OF CELEBRATION OF OUR NATION’S INDEPENDENT EXISTENCE AND PROUD INDEPENDENT HISTORY, CLIMAXING WITH OUR COLLECTIVE ASSERTION THAT OUR NATION IS THE BEST NATION ON THE PLANET, … BRAGGING RIGHTS THAT COME WITH DECLARING INDEPENDNCE.
There are no prizes handed out for who does the most convincing job on this because too much scrutiny would be bound to lead to an Emperor’s New Clothes exposure.
ALL TOGETHER NOW, ONE MORE CHORUS before we let our STAGECOACH revert to its natural PUMPKIN status.
If such remarks seem IRREVERANT, that could suggest that we are dealing with a RELIGIOUS type of belief that is held together by the assertions of the believer contingent.
This type of GROUP THINK that we WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS seem ‘addicted to’ was challenged by Giordano Bruno whose last words on the topic, just before being burnt at the stake in 1600 were, … “The MAJORITY has NO MONOPOLY ON THE TRUTH”, … but as his burning at the stake domonstated, the MAJORITY DOES HAVE A MONOPOLY of the “OPERATIVE TRUTH”, and that is why this note is exploring how the hell, in this “MODERN ERA”, we WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS can be continuing to be PLAYING A GAME and thus compelling our FELLOWS to PLAY THIS GAME of PRETENDING NOT TO SEE THE GAME.
Ok, ALL TOGETHER NOW! Pull out your NATIONAL ANTHEMS and we shall jointly celebrate the INDEPENDENT EXISTENCE of our NATION as AFFIRMED by our DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR based rhetoric; WE HEREBY DECLARE, NOT ONLY THAT OUR NATION (please fill in the blank here) IS THE GREATEST NATION ON EARTH, whose INDEPENDENT EXISTENCE we are committed to GIVE OUR LIVES, IF NECESSARY, TO DEFEND AND THAT MEANS DEFENDING THE WHOLE LOT OF IT AS DEFINED BY ITS IMAGINARY LINE BOUNDARIE, which are REAFFIRMED by our NEIGHBOURS who also wanted to participate in this dividing out of THESE SPOILS OF WAR AND CONFLICT i.e. he divvying up of TRADITIONAL indigenous aboriginal lands, as determined by a COMMITTEE OF THE WINNERS.

The LONG and the SHORT of it is that the OLD SYSTEM of SPONTANEOUS BALANCE-based co-habitation of an amazing DIVERSITY, which was purely relational and implicit, is now replaced by LOCAL EXPLICIT specification and differentiation which employs UNIQUE NAMING to identify EACH NAMED UNIT as a LOCAL INDEPENDENTLY-EXISTING THING-IN-ITSELF with its own INDEPENDENT RIGHTS AND PRIVILEGES, as if it were a LOCAL AUTHOR of “ITS OWN ACTIONS AND DEVELOPMENTS” .
EXCUSE ME FOR THAT DOUBLE ERROR OF NAMING AND GRAMMAR BASED IMPUTING OF LOCAL AUTHORING POWERS, but this can become the basis for PLAYING A GAME, A GAME OF NOT PLAYING A GAME, WHERE WE CAN PUNISH ALL THOSE THAT DO NOT PLAY THE GAME, OF NOT SEEING WE SEE THE GAME.
… “WHAT’S THAT YOU SAY, I AM NOW A CERTIFIED INHABITANT OF AN INDEPENDENT NATION STATE, and this gives me a whole lot of PRIVILEGES …. PROVIDED THAT I COMMIT TO FEIGNING BELIEF IN THE EXISTENCE OF THIS INDEPENDENT NATION and to GIVE MY LIFE TO PERPETUATE BELIEF IN ITS INDEPENDENT EXISTENCE”
… hmm, that sounds like one of those MAFIA deals that ‘one cannot refuse’, … but I can see the big army and the police force that have been assembled to MAKE BELIEVERS out of everyone as to the EXISTENCE of this INDEPENDENT NATION, … everyone apart from the birds and animals who ignore us when we unroll our PARCHMENT DECLARATIONS announced by a chorus of trumpets, and with a contingent of armed soldiers at our back, we issue instructions to the crowds in the commons to READ MY LIPS, … WE NOW DECLARE OURSELVES TO BE AN INDEPENDENT NATION CONSISTING OF FREE PEOPLE, who by the way will be incarcerated and punished if any of the aforesaid fail to at least feign belief in this INSTITUTING of a NEW LOCAL THING-IN-ITSELF NATION-STATE with (so we say, … come on now, some gusto you guys out there in the chorus) … “WITH ITS OWN POWERS OF AUTHORING ACTIONS AND DEVELOPMENT”. I tell you this is going to be fun; we are going to have a grand competition when we get this NATION based DIVISON into LOCAL FRAGMENTS going, and each FRAGMENT will be cheering its constituents on to fuel LOCAL GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT AND PRODUCTION as part of this INDEPENDENT NATION BASED AUTHORING DYNAMIC.
EACH OF US will OPERATE OUT OF OUR OWN IMAGINARY BOUNDARY LINE DEFINED LAND-BASE although we shall be free to make deals that others that will be unable to refuse, to acquire access to resources, which will be most often acquired by sworn agreements of tribal leaders (who will be well rewarded for selling access to their ‘national resources’). In this way each INDEPENDENT NATION can claim to be the LOCAL AUTHOR of their own actions and developments regardless of whether employing a resource base that is many times the size of the area included within their own national boundaries, the inflation of exploitable area contributing to the inflation of the claims of NATIONAL AUTHORSHIP, which is the great thing about colonization.
Once everyone agrees to attribute AUTHORSHIP by way of the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR, we have ourselves the basics for a GLOBAL ECONOMY wherein GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT and PRODUCTION can proceed ON THEIR OWN in a MALE ASSERTIVE manner as if it were all playing out on a FLAT SURFACE of an ABSOLUTE EMPTY AND INFINITE SPACE so that there is no need to worry about the FEMALE CONJUGATE SHRINKAGE OF WILDERNESS because, as far our WESTERN CULTURE language based construction of this SUBSITUTE REALITY goes, “THERE IS NO CONJUGATE WILDERNESS”, there is only our MALE ASSERTIVE SELF-AUTHORED CULTIVATION OF THE LAND, FEATURING CONTINUING GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT and PRODUCTION of goods and servces.
That’s what we call a GROWTH ECONOMY, … and if we keep investing in it, we keep increasing the GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT and PRODUCTION.
HOW LONG CAN THIS CONTINUE? That depends on the RADIUS OF THE PLANET, and if we assume an INFINITE RADIUS, which means that space is flat and we don’t have to dealwith any CONJUGATE SHRINKING OF WILDERENSS, and the associated complications of a DECLINE IN DIVERSITY, … complications that are too complex to really understand in an rational manner.
By assuming a FLAT SPACE, and HEY, WE CAN DESIGN THAT RIGHT INTO OUR LANGUAGE SO IT IS AUTOMATIC; I.E. WE CAN USE RATIO-BASED LANGUAGE OR WHAT IS KNOWN AS RATIONALITY OR REASON, so that based on what we can PRODUCE by CULTIVATING 60 ACRES, IF WE CULTIVATE 640 ACRES WE WILL PRODUCE 4 TIMES AS MUCH, AND WE CAN KEEP REASONING OR RATIOING ON THAT LINEAR AUGMENTATION BASIS AKA ‘GROWTH’.
OK, OK, OK, … This DOES leave out the FEMALE CONJUGATE in the case of the NON-FLAT-EARTH, SPHERICAL EARTH REALITY, but that gets way too complicated to take account of. We don’t even know the IDENTITY of ALL THE WILDERNESS FORMS OF LIFE THAT WE ARE SQUEEZING OUT IN THE SPEHRICAL SPACE ACCOUNTING OF THINGS, SO, better to JUST FORGET ABOUT TRYING TO ACCOUNT FOR THE CONJUGATE WILDNESS SHRINKAGE AND GO WITH JUST THE MALE ASSERTIVE REASON OR RATIO-BASED GROWTH WHERE WE JUST MEASURE OUR GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT AND PRODUCTION AS IF ON A FLAT EARTH.
REMEMBER WHAT OUR WESTERN PHILOSOPHERS SAID ABOUT THIS; i.e. if we keep our talk simple by isolating a particular thing as if it were in an absolute empty and infinite space, then we get to talk about its movement and development as if it were fully and solely authored by itself. Can you imagine how difficult it would be to capture in language, a dynamic wherein the movement or development of one thing was tied up in an interdependency with the movement or development of everything!
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
REASON WINS on this basis of SIMPLIFYING our REPRESENTATION of things. It is far easier to measure and talk about the GROWTH of CULTIVATED LAND, than to try to include talk of the CONJUGATE SHRINKAGE of WILDERNESS, as happens … when we (chuckle chuckle chuckle “IF WE”) admit to a spherical space instead of sticking with the abstraction of an absolute empty space of infinite extent; i.e. EUCLIDEAN SPACE.
HERE COMES THE GROWTH ECONOMY, … NO NEED TO WORRY ABOUT THE CONJUGATE SHRINKAGE OF WILDERENESS SO LONG AS WE CONSTRAIN OUR LANGUAGE AND DISCOURSE TO THE MALE ASSERTIVE CONCEPTS OF GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT AND PRODUCTION WHERE “TRANSFORMATION” NEVER COMES INTO PLAY BECAUSE OF THE IMSSING FEMALE CONJUGATE OR THE ‘DEA ABSCONDITA’.

DOES ANYONE CONTINUE TO WONDER ABOUT WHY THERE IS EVIDENT GROWTH OF SCHIZOPHRENIA AND PARANOIA IN OUR WESTERN CULTURE, THE SOURCE OF WHICH HAS BEEN POINTED OUT BY BOHM AND NIETZSCHE AND OTHERS; I.E. THE DOUBLE ERROF OF NAMING AND GRAMMAR “MISREPRESENTATION OF REALITY” which we have built into OUR COMMON AVERAGE EUROPEAN LANGUAGE REPRESENTATIONS?
NUMBER ONE ON THE CRAZY-MAKING LIST IS THE PATHOGEN ABSTRACTION. THIS EMERGES DIRECTLY FROM THE DOUBLE ERROR OF NAMING AND GRAMMAR WHEN WE ‘DUMMY OUT’ THE PHYSICAL REALITY OF ‘BALANCE” AND “IMBALANCE” AND REPLACE THESE QUANTUM LOGIC RELATIONAL UNDERSTANDING WITH THE ABSOLUTISMS OF BINARY LOGIC.
Instead of “there is TOWNING in the TRANSFORMING LANDSCAPE”which honours the WAVE-FIELD nature of reality, we speak instead of the TOWN as if it were a LOCAL and EXPLICIT THING-IN-ITSELF that had ITS OWN POWERS OF GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT and PRODUCTION; i.e. we say ‘the TOWN is GROWING LARGER and is becoming more POPULOUS and PRODUCTIVE’. IS THIS TOWN A MAGIC SPIRIT WITH ITS OWN AUTHORING POWERS AS IT SEEMS IF YOU ‘READ MY LIPS’ OR SHOULD WE BE SPEAKING AS THE INDIGENOUS ABORIGINALS DO, … WHERE, IN THE CASE OF THE VERY SAME PHENOMENON, WE SAY “THERE IS TOWNING IN THE TRANSFORMING LANDSCAPE’.
OH NO, NO WAY, … TOO MUCH WATER UNDER THE BRIDGE IN OUR WESTERN CULTURE, … CAN YOU IMAGINE BACKING OFF FROM OUR USE OF THE DOUBLE ERROR OF NAMING AND GRAMMAR TO MAKE GOOD ON OUR ‘DECLARATIONS OF INDEPENDENCE’? LETS FACE IT; WE NEED TO TAKE OUT THE ‘THEY’ AND INSERT ‘WE’ IN OUR USUAL CAPTURE OF WHAT IS GOING ON;
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.”
WHO IS GOING TO ‘CALL US’ ON OUR ‘GAME PLAYING’ IF IT IS ‘NOT US’? CHIEF SEATTLE?
This we know, the earth does not belong to man, man belongs to the earth. This we know. All things are connected like the blood which unites one family. All things are connected. Whatever befalls the earth, befalls the sons of the earth. Man did not weave the web of life, he is merely a strand in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself.”— “Chief Seattle”
HEY, WE’VE HEARD THAT BEFORE, … SOMEWHERE. … LET’S SEE, … OH YES, … IT WAS HERE;
Since according to our present conceptions the elementary particles of matter are also, in their essence, nothing else than condensations of the electromagnetic field— Einstein
Of course, this DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR lets us forge language based representations wherein we can CONSTRUCT a SUBSTITUTE REALITY based on BINARY LOGIC wherein MATTER and SPACE, we PORTRAY as MUTUALLY EXCLUSIVE and that serves up a whole lot of SIMPLIFICATION in that, in our language based representations of (our simplified SUBSTITUTE) reality, we only have to concern ourselves with the MALE ASSERTIVE CONJUGATE and we can DROP OUT the FEMALE CONJUGATE which is always the huge problem because while our language capture of the MALE ASSERTIVE is LOCAL and EXPLICIT, like ‘the TOWN IS GROWING’, … the FEMALE CONJUGATE is ‘the LANDSCAPE IS TRANSFORMING’, and that is NOT AT ALL LOCAL AND EXPLICIT but is instead NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT and just goes ON AND ON AND ON and we’re just going to have to drop that one out. That’s just the price of going with a NON-FLOW-BASED LANGUAGE because if we retain FLOW in our language architecture, we can speak in terms of TOWNING in the TRANSFORMING LANDSCAPE which doesn’t use that mathematical process of DIFFERENTIATION that plucks out a TOWN as if it were a LOCAL EXPLICIT THING-IN-ITSELF, floating around in an absolute space of infinite extent.
DIFFERENTIATION is thus achieved by language with the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR and with it, the shift in focus from the NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT dynamic of TRANSFORMATION, letting us ‘step down’ to the LOCAL and EXPLICIT “TOWN” THING-IN-ITSELF. And the WESTERN CULTURE inquiring mind gets excited when mention shifts down and in from the NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT to mention of ‘the TOWN’, as we WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS are often eager to get into the thing-in-itself explicit details and have already forgotten about THE TRANSFORMING LANDSCAPE IN WHICH TOWNING IS INCLUDED, because that is NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT and thus BLURRY as HELL. Although, mind you, if we were IN THAT TOWNING, we might well be ROMANCED by the invigorating SENSORY EXPXERIENCE OF INCLUSION in the transforming relational continuum, prior to putting our CROW’S EYE INTELLECTUAL ANALYZING STARE BACK ON THE TOWN and DIFFERENTIATING, as we might a laboratory frog in a dissection exercise to get to a BOTTOM-UP understanding of the thing in terms of its ‘constituent parts’
As for that frog being a condensation of the electromagnetic field, we’ll have to put a hold on that until we finish our education and get our degree which will secure for us a JOB involving ‘heads-down’ focus to ‘get things done’, and thus garner a needed sustenance. Until we can back off that goal oriented focus and open up to our inclusion in the unfolding relational continuum and regain the ‘feel’ of our QUANTUM LOGIC involvement (i.e. and who knows when quantum logic involvement will become the common base for understanding ‘reality’), we can continue to construct SUBSTITUTE REALITIES using BINARY LOGIC and ‘live’ in that SUBSTITUTE REALITY where differentiation rules.
As regards the academies, they are established in order to regulate the studies of the pupils and are concerned not to have the program of teaching change very often: in such places, because it is a question of the progress of the students, it frequently happens that the things which have to be chosen are not those which are most true but those which are most easy. And by that division in things which makes different people form different judgements, it so happens that certain people are in error contrary to their own opinion.” – Johannes Kepler, ‘Harmonies of the World’
Those heads-down academia crippling brain-draws can go on for a long while for us WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS, and that Bohm’s bitch, .. we continue to UBIQUITOUSLY employ BINARY LOGIC and are thus ‘IN ERROR CONTRARY TO OUR OWN OPINION’, ERROR which FRAGMENTS REALITY since it is the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR.

WILL I EVER GET “back on topic” TO COVID 19? one might well ask.
My answer for this ramble is that a DE-MESMERIZING preparation is required so that the reader, if she so desires, can get herself loose of the crazy-keeping fetters of WESTERN CULTURE ONE-SIDED MALE ASSERTIVE SUBSTITUTE REALITY CONSTRUCTION. It takes some psychic effort to get off that HILL with one’s CROW’S EYE view of the TOWN as it is GROWING and DEVELOPING and PRODUCING and re-situate as ONE WHO IS INCLUDED IN THE TRANSFORMING RELATIONAL CONTINUUM, yes, even including molten streams of lava moving stuff from the interior to the exterior NOT AS A TRANSACTION but as TRANSFORMING in which case we can’t say that THE EARTH was the source of the MAGMA and that the EARTH was the RECIPIENT of the MAGMA because everything is in continual flux and there is JUST EARTHING and there is NO EARTH.
Before we ever heard Einstein’s account of how matter is a condensation of the wave-field, we already knew that our language was tongue tying us because if the EARTH is continually extruding magma and subducting crustal material that gets melted down and extruded then THERE NO LONG IS “A PLANET”, there is only a PLANETING and it makes no sense to argue that that is happening in a vacuum, so giving some substance to the universe makes sense and indiganous aboriginals have already “been there, done that”.
But just because the EASTERN people are willing to give up the notion of LOCAL AUTHORING and go with a transforming relational cotninuu, has not rubbed off on us WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS and like a language architecture where we can build in the idea of the LOCAL AUTHOR for describing ourselves because that is the WESTERN CULTURE WAY and it would make AYN RAND PROUD because it celebrates our powers of LOCAL AUTHORING and if we’re going to believe we’re local authors, we have to go along with the BINARY LOGIC based INABITANT-HABITAT SPLIT, … AHHH, … that feels better, … I am now FREE and no longer a condensation of the electromagnetic field that is purportedly all-including. Now that I am FREE, my EGO can re-inflate and I can be ‘coming from myself’ as Ayn Rand celebrates, unlike those pesky redskins who have to rely on the outside-inward pull of INSPIRATION. Of course, it is true that while EGO swells the head, INSPIRATION FILLS THE HEART, … so there is some merit accepting our inclusion in the transforming relational continuum as compared to going with our WESTERN CULTURE standard of being the LOCAL AUTHOR by way of the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR which gives us that LOCAL JUMPSTART AUTHORING CAPABILITY, … UH OH…. here comes that spectre of SCHIZOPHRENIA and PARANOIA once again because when we reduce reality to one-sided MALE ASSERTIVE action, NOT ONLY DO WE SPLIT OURSELVES INTO TWO (SCHIZOPHRENIA) but we create a ghostly DEA INCOGNITA (the FEMALE CONUGJATE of the COINCIDENTIA OPPOSITORUM), that is liable to HAUNT our psyche and make us PARANOID.
When we WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS go crashing around personifying the AVALANCHE the SCHIZOPHRENIA comes by way of our conceiving ourselves as split off and independent of the TRANSFORMING WORLD WE CONTINUE TO BE INCLUDED IN, .. and the PARANOIA comes by way of being HAUNTED by the eery feeling that there are forces at play that are messing with us that are coming from ‘who knows where’. Of course, these issues only arise because we WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS have convinced ourselves of our quote/unqute INDEPENDENT BEING and our LOCAL POWERS OF AUTHORING actions and developments (the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR).
What we call ‘normal’ is a product of repression, denial, splitting, projection, introjection and other forms of destructive action on experience.” — R.D. Laing
* * *
If we manage to escape the nightmare of thinking of ourselves as LOCAL EXPLICIT THINGS-IN-OURSELVES IN AN ABSOLUTE EMPTY SPACE OF INFINITE EXTENT and open up to understanding ourselves as inclusions in the transforming relational continuum, at first glance that is a shrinking down but on reflection, it is becoming ONE WITH EVERYTHING as Schroedinger points out in sharing his embrace of the Advaita Vedanta understanding of reality that hearkens back to the QUANTUM LOGIC wherein the material forms are condensations in the electromagnetic field.
Oh yes, COVID 19. THERE ARE NO EFFING PATHOGENS, there is only IMBALANCE within the microbial assemblage, and just as when there is a proliferation of poor people due to an escalating imbalance and our WESTERN CULTURE responds by hiring more police to deal with the proliferation of poor people trying to do some ‘unofficial rebalancing’ rather than accepting the reality of IMBALANCE being the source of the ILLNESS, that is THE MISTAKE that WESTEN CULTURE MEDICINE is making; i.e. more ANTI-PATHOGEN treatments when the real issue is IMBALANCE.
DON’T FORGET, BALANCE “IS” QUANTUM LOGIC and that is about our SENSE-EXPERIENCE REALITY, … while it is BINARY LOGIC that is where this abstraction of “THE COVID 19 PATHOGEN” DELUSION IS COMING FROM. THERE ARE NO PATHOGENS, but there is IMBALANCE in the microbial assemblage as we know in many other cases of vitamin deficiencies and other deficiences aka IMBALANCES where the remedy is REBALANCING as demonstrated in the success of the REBALANCING REMEDY of FECAL MICROBIOTA TRANPLANTATION. These are not exceptions, ILLNESS IS IMBALANCE it is NOT the ATTACK OF PATHOGENS, that is first of all an ERROR OF GRAMMAR that is cultivating the PARANOID SCHIZOPHRENIA that is infecting the WESTERN CULTURE CONDITONED PSYCHE, a Bohm points out.
So, how come ANTI-PATHOGEN technologies like police shooting robbers WORKS? In other words how come the anti-pathogen strategy of PATHOGEN ELIMINATON WORKS?
WHAT DO WE MEAN BY ‘WORKS’?
IN THE RICH AND POOR IMBALANCE MORE POLICE CAN BE HIRED TO ELIMINATE THE PROLIFERATION OF ‘REBALANCERS’ and every time there is a WAVE of REBALANCER DYNAMICS the ANTI-PATHOGEN tactics of PATHOOGEN ELIMINATON will result in quiet periods and VACCINATION technology will simply neutralise the effects of REBALANCERS so that either way, the IMBALANCE IS PRESERVED and we shall be in line for repeated cycles of REBALANCER PROLIFERATION. To add to this DYSFUNCTION, WE WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS LIKE OUR IMBALANCE which we relate to ENTITLEMENT that separates the RICH and POOR. Do we know how far we can TAKE the rich and poor imbalance? We used to find out real quick in a simple open community that lacked sophisticated technologies that could drive RICH and POOR IMBALANCES to unheard of extremes, leaving the decison of how far to go to those with political power who are not usually comming from the ranks of the por.
The LEY ISSUE THAT IS COMMONLY BEING MISSED is that the proliferation of REBALANCERS is not the ILLNESS. the ILLNESS is the IMBALANCE and the emergence of REBALANCERS is the RESULT of ILLNESS and NOT THE CAUSE of ILLNESS.
The attack on the REBALANCERS is a kind of AUTO-IMMUNE DYSFUNCTION and our orientation to eliminating the REBALANCERS distracts us from the real issue which is IMBALANCE and actually shoots us in the foot by inhibiting our natural response to IMBALANCE.
VICTORY is DECLARED when the CURRENT WAVE of REBALANCERS is either ELIMINATED or rendered ineffective by way of IMMUNIZATION AGAINST REBALANCING so that the result is the PERSISTENCE OF IMBALANCE
NO WONDER WE HAVE A CONTINUING LINE-UP OF NEW REBALANCER VARIANTS because our WESTERN MEDICINE RESPONSE is to go to WAR against the REBALANCERS instead of addressing the IMBALANCE.
