OPEN LETTER to JOE BIDEN, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES
I am writing to you as you are one of the most influential persons in the world today, and I have the sense that you are honest and fully committed to ‘doing the right thing’, in so far as we can determine ‘what that is’, to support global well-being.
My research into basic issues suggests that we have a problem, impacting the world as a whole, which I see as one interdependent world, as it is understood in Modern physics and also in the traditional understanding of indigenous aboriginals, Taoists/Buddhists and Advaita Vedanta adherents, much as expressed by the philosophers Friedrich Nietzsche and David Bohm, both of whom became aware of the problem of FRAGMENTATION in our WESTERN CULTURE dominated global society.
Since FRAGMENTATION is sustained in the world today by, among other things, the DECLARATIONS OF INDEPENDENCE of the self-styled “INDEPENDENT” sovereign states, the U.S.A. being among the most powerful and influential in defining and supporting the current world order which, like a ‘house of cards’, persists because of solidarity across the global collection of nations who have all opted to support belief in the abstraction of LOCAL AUTHORING of actions, such as production and development, as originating from the self-declared as “independent” sovereign nation-states of the world.
While the human population of the world has embraced this notion, and while the WESTERN CULTURE supported belief is that humans are an independent and superior species in the world, contrary to be indigenous aboriginal (mitakuye oyasin) and Modern physics understanding (quantum logic) that ‘everything is interdependent’. The pervasive belief in INDEPENDENCE is behind the prevailing FRAGMENTATION of the world, a FRAGMENTATION that is first of all, MENTAL and given global support by NATION-STATE DECLARATIONS OF INDEPENDENCE to that we have a situation today which David Bohm has described as a collective SCHIZOPHRENIA, … a FRAGMENTING that begins with our WESTERN CULTURE “declarations of independence” not only at the NATION level but also at the INDIVIDUAL and ORGANIZATION levels.
As Nietzsche has pointed out, this FRAGMENTATION is something we put into our minds with language, by way of the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR which literally ‘conjures up’ the impression of LOCAL AUTHORING of actions and developments. This, our language-fabricated FRAGMENTATION based IMPRESSION of the world, which is radically unlike the world as understood by indigenous aboriginals and Modern physics, is something we have built into the structure of our European languages, those that Whorf categorizes as having the CAE, COMMON AVERAGE EUROPEAN language architecture. Because we have built FRAGMENTATION into our language with the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR, we are continually crafting SUBSTITUTE REALITIES based on LOCAL AUTHORING of actions, development and production, even though we live within a TRANSFORMING RELATIONAL CONTINUUM, the WAVE-FIELD of Modern physics and the Tao of Eastern understanding of reality.
Let me just bring to the fore that the FRAGMENTATION based SUBSTITUTE REALITY that we WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS are employing, through the facilitating technology of LANGUAGE and GRAMMAR, as our OPERATIVE REALITY, is a SUBSTITUTE REALITY that is the source of INCREASING FRAGMENTATION, which ‘comes to mind’ through language and propagates through our language-informed actions and developments. For example, our INDEPENDENT pursuits of GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT and PRODUCTION, … of towns and national and business enterprises, are, in our language, cast in one sided MALE-ASSERTIVE terms and are missing the conjugate FEMALE, ACCOMMODATING, so hat as we focus on the GROWTH of cities and industries, we put ourselves into an unreal SUBSTITUTE REALITY because in our sense-experience reality, there is only the all-including TRANSFORMATION wherein the unmentioned SHRINKAGE OF WILDERNESS comes hand in hand with the GROWTH of cities and industry, … a reality that points to the UNREALITY of GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT and PRODUCTION, or more accurately; WE USE LANGUAGE TO CONSTRUCT A SUBSTITUTE REALITY WITHIN WHICH GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT AND PRODUCTION ‘MAKE SENSE’ while what is actually going on in our sense-experience reality is TRANSFORMATION.
WE are INCLUDED in this TRANSFORMATION, that is the understanding of Modern physics and it is the understanding of indigenous aboriginal cultures (i.e. it was the original understanding which has largely been overtaken by our WESTERN thinking within today’s indigenous aboriginal population; e.g. an indigenous aboriginal friend estimates that less than 5% of today’s indigenous aboriginals have retained their traditional belief system as it strongly tied to language, as our understanding is conditioned by the language we are thinking and speaking in. Because of a catastrophic loss of original language facility during colonization, indigenous peoples first languages are mainly European).
Joe, as PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, and I trust, a very caring person and a responsible one as is so important for one sitting in a position that gives such great power and authority impacting the full global well-being, I AM SUGGESTING TO YOU THAT IT IS TIME THAT WE, THE GLOBAL SOCIAL COLLECTIVE, ADDRESSED THE CHALLENGE WE HAVE BEEN CO-CULTIVATING, THROUGH OUR LANGUAGE AND POLITICAL SYSTEMS. The challenge is the NEED TO ADDRESS the effects of the “FALSE” SUBSTITUTE REALITY we are creating IN WHICH THE MALE-ASSERTIVE DYNAMIC, THE DYNAMIC WHEREIN GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT AND PRODUCTION ARE TAKEN TO BE ‘REAL and have formed the basis of “OUR GLOBAL SOCIAL “OPERATIVE REALITY”.
Our employing of this SUBSTITUTE REALITY as our OPERATIVE REALITY, is the SOURCE OF FRAGMENTATION. Only in our language-based SUBSTITUTE REALITY are there INDEPENDENT NATIONS and INDEPENDENT PEOPLE. In sense-experience reality, everything is related. As the Modern day systems sciences observe;
“WE LIVE IN A WORLD CHARACTERIZED BY GLOBAL INTERCONNECTEDNESS AND MUTUAL INTERDEPENDENCE”.
But that’s not how we talk about our world. We talk about it in terms of it being FRAGMENTED into 195 INDEPENDENT NATIONS whose well-being, so we say, is something they are each the independent authors of, as if THE CLAIM OF INDEPENDENCE WAS ‘REALITY’. Independence is NOT REALITY, but it is FRAGMENTING because if the MIND is convinced of the reality of INDEPENDENT EXISTENCE, then the actions may follow suit which is where FRAGMENTATION arises and afflicts the social dynamic. The systems sciences refer to this as SUBOPTIMIZATION, … which is the DYSFUNCTION of trying to optimize PARTS that are believed to be INDEPENDENT when the reality is that there is only ONE INTERDEPENDENT matrix of relations, as affirmed by Modern physics as well as by the ‘Systems Sciences’. These sciences are pointing out that the LITERAL BELIEF in the INDEPENDENCE of NATIONS, BUSINESS, PEOPLE etc. remains strong in our culture, and organizes our actions, NOT in accordance with the understanding of ‘mitakuye oyasin’ which affirms an INTERdependent reality as understood NOT ONLY BY MODERN PHYSICS but also by indigenous aboriginals;
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”
This interdependent reality has likewaise been confirmed in the SYSTEMS SCIENCES, where it is pointed out that because of our BELIEF IN FRAGMENTATION (i.e. the falsity that ‘independent beings’ and ‘independent nations’ are a ‘reality’), we continue to embark on programs of SUBOPTIMIZATION (FRAGMENTATION) which assumes that IT IS POSSIBLE to improve a SYSTEM (nation, business etc.) as if it exists IN ITS OWN INDEPENDENT RIGHT. This is a misleading notion that is the source of dysfunction and fragmentation as the SYSTEMS SCIENCES have pointed out;
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)
As evident from the above statement, FRAGMENTATION by way of the FALSE IMPRESSION of INDEPENDENCE, which comes our DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR language-based SUBSTITUTE REALITY, has become dominant and pervasive in our WESTERN CULTURE social dynamic.
HOW DO WE BREAK OUT OF THIS 300 YEAR LONG HABIT?
That unanswered question is why I am directing this note to you, Joe, because you are one of the most trusted and influential people in our Modern day WESTERN CULTURE DOMINATED global social collective, and I sense that your heart is bleeding as my own is, in witnessing the continuing growth of FRAGMENTATION and related dysfunction in our society.
If you are in any way OPEN to giving serious consideration to, or in even pondering the possibility that what Bohm and Nietzsche and others are saying has merit, that our language and grammar is supporting common belief in a SUBSTITUTE REALITY which is FRAGMENTATIVE, I would encourage you to read on further as to how our WESTERN CULTURE MISCONCEPTION of REALITY is leading to the COVID 19 debacle, to get to which, we have to go one step deeper into the process by which we have traded out our sense-experience reality of inclusion in an interdependent transforming relational continuum, for belief in a SUBSTITUTE REALITY fragmented into local INDEPENDENT PARTS.
THE WESTERN CULTURE SUBSTITUTING OF BINARY LOGIC (the logic of EXISTENCE) for QUANTUM LOGIC (the logic of BALANCE).
We WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS have introduced into our language the BINARY LOGIC that establishes LOCAL BEING by way of the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR, thus we say, for example, that “the AVALANCHE is crashing down the mountainside and destroying the village”. This is a one sided MALE-ASSERTIVE construction of a SUBSTITUTE REALITY that would not happen in an indigenous aboriginal language; i.e. the indigenous aboriginal language will NOT LEAVE OUT THE FEMALE CONJUGATE of the OPENING OF A HOLE IN THE TERRAIN that is part of the physical phenomena of the AVALANCHE, the OPENING of the HOLE (the female conjugate) and the ASSERTIVE DESCENT OF THE MASS OF ROCKS (the male conjugate) CO-informing us of the TRANSFORMING OF THE LANDSCAPE.
QUANTUM LOGIC is the logic of BALANCE and it would have us understand that what is going on with the AVALANCHE is that regions of surplus are giving up materials in support of regions of deficiency, as describes the basics of the WAVE-FIELD DYNAMIC, the PEAK of the WAVE having the surplus and the TROUGH of the WAVE having the deficiency and the REBALANCING being the basic impetus in NATURE aka the GREAT HARMONY. However, WESTERN LANGUAGE based REPRESENTATION, for reasons of simplifying the representation, has opted to SPLIT APART the MALE and FEMALE conjugates and go forward with ONLY THE MALE and the reason for that is that the MALE is the LOCAL and EXPLICIT which is easily captured in language, while the FEMALE is NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT (purely relational) which is difficult to capture in language.
I am speaking here of the architecture of language and as David Bohm has shown, to capture reality as understood in Modern physics requires a FLOW-BASED language (Bohm’s ‘Rheomode’ language) which as Bohm discovered, is the architecture in the indigenous aboriginal languages; i.e. they are QUANTUM PHYSICS ready which means BALANCE based.
So, Joe, what is happening is that we WESTERN CULTURE adherents, are employing language that constructs a SUBSTITUTE REALITY based on FRAGMENTS and this FRAGMENTATION is achieved with BINARY LOGIC wherein we use NAMING to impute the notional existence of LOCAL things-in-themselves, and we conflate the NAMING with GRAMMAR to impute to the LOCAL THING, ITS OWN POWER OF AUTHORING ACTIONS AND DEVELOPMENTS. That is NOT affirmed by our sense-experience reality, our sense-experience reality is of inclusion in the transforming relational continuum, an experience which is given representation by means of flow-based language such as the indigenous aboriginal languages wherein what we would be saying would be the equivalent of ‘there is TOWNING in the TRANSFORMING LANDSCAPE’ which DOES NOT FRAGMENT, in the manner that our WESTERN CULURE does in saying ‘the TOWN is GROWING larger and more populous and productive’,… as if this TOWN were a LOCAL THING-IN-ITSELF situated within an ABSOLUTE EMPTY SPACE OF INFINITE EXTENT, as in our WESTERN CULTURE language based SUBSTITUTE REALITY.
OUR CONTINUING TO ‘HOLD ON’ to this dysfunction-sourcing (fragmenting) belief in the SUBSTITUTE REALITY wherein ‘THE TOWN GROWS’ and ‘THE NATION’s PRODUCTION GROWS’, where we promote the ILLUSION of LOCAL AUTHORING even though, as our sense-experience affirms, we share inclusion in a world characterized by global interconnectedness and mutual interdependence , …. has become the source of INCREASING FRAGMENTATION which we ‘back up’ with EGO, by making out as if it ‘really is’ our INDEPENDENT NATION that is the LOCAL AUTHOR of its own actions and developments. Joe, this is not realistic in a sense-experience supported context; i.e. our sense-experience is screaming out to us that we live n a world characterized by global interconnectedness and mutual interdependence and that is our sense-experience reality which is still currently playing ‘second fiddle’ tot he intellectual abstraction of ‘the INDEPENDENT NATION’, the notional LOCAL AUTHOR of its own actions, development and production that derives from the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR.
OUR CHOICE OF REALITIES IS UP TO US, AND THE INDIGENOUS ABORIGINALS HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR MORE THAN 300 YEARS FOR US WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS TO COME BACK DOWN OUT OF THE CLOUDS AND REAFFIRM THAT, IN SPITE OF OUR ABILITY TO USE LANGUAGE TO CONSTRUCT ‘SUBSTITUTE REALITIES’ THAT SIMPLIFY EXPERIENCE SHARING AND INFLATE OUR EGOS, WE ARE ALL LIVING TOGETHER in a world characterized by global interconnectedness and mutual interdependence .
COVID 19, PATHOGENS IN GENERAL and BOHM’s WARNING
Part of the Wake-up call is that our WESTERN CULTURE belief in the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR falsely imputes the existence of the LOCAL AUTHOR which is where our WESTERN EGO is coming from, but this is a DOUBLE-EDGED SWORD because once we start believing in LOCAL AUTHORS and put behind us our understanding in terms of BALANCE, we OBLIGE ourselves to BOTH HEROES and VILLAINS as a substitute for BALANCE.
So we INVENT PATHOGENS, notional AUTHORS OF INJURIOUS actions and developments, such as COVID 19; i.e. the notion of the PATHOGEN is a BINARY LOGIC based abstraction that sets up a SUBSTITUTE REALITY in place of our QUANTUM LOGIC BALANCE/IMBALANCE understanding as fits within the transforming relational continuum where DISEASE is NOT ‘the ATTACK OF PATHOGENS as COVID 19 is presented, but IMBALANCE in the microbial assemblage.
As we have shown with our REBALANCING based remedies like Vitamin C that does not ‘go on the attack against’ pneumonia microbes or viruses but cultivates healthiness as BALANCE where ILLNESS is IMBALANCE that will manifest as the PROLIFERATION of particular microbes but those proliferating microbes are not the CAUSE of the ILLNESS. As Pasteur finally agreed with Béchamp, “le microbe n’est rien, le terrain est tout” (the microbe is nothing, the terrain is everything). This is an acknowledgement of the reality that HEALTH is relational BALANCE and ILLNESS is relational IMBALANCE, the proliferation of a particular microbe, such as COVID19, being an indication of ILLNESS AS IMBALANCE and not of ILLNESS AS THE ATTACK OF A PATHOGEN.
ONCE WE ACCEPT THE DOUBLE ERROR OF NAMING AND GRAMMAR AS THE BASIS OF LOCAL AUTHORING, WE NOT ONLY SET THE STAGE FOR ‘FRAGMENTATION’ GENERALLY, WE SET THE STAGE FOR REPRESENTING ILLNESS AS THE ATTACK OF PATHOGENS, WHEN ILLNESS IN REALITY IS IMBALANCE IN THE MICROBIAL ASSEMBLAGE.
So, Joe, my intuition is that we all have in us the intuitive understanding that the belief in the INDEPENDENCE of things, GOOD OR BAD, is a SCAM that we have embraced because it simplifies our language based REPRESENTATION of sense-experience reality. This WESTERN CULTURE approach to constructing simplified SUBSTITUTE REALITY representations, has been said by EMERSON to be “A TOOL THAT HAS RUN AWAY WITH THE WORKMAN, THE HUMAN WITH THE DIVINE”, meaning that our language employs simplifications that make the language easy to use as a kind of shorthand for sharing A ROUGH IMPRESSION OF our sense-experience reality (WHICH IN ITSELF IS INEFFABLE BECAUSE NONLOCAL AND IMPLICIT AS IS THE NATURE OF SENSE-EXPERIENCE OF INCLUSION IN THE TRANSFORMING RELATIONAL CONTINUUM AKA THE WAVE-FIELD AKA THE TAO).
So, the world of our TALK is NOT the world of our sense-experience of inclusion in the transforming relational continuum. Nevertheless, the tool of language enables us to construct an EFFABLE SUBSTITUTE REALITY so that we can all get on the same intellectual page, … giving us a means of SHARING our experiences and thoughts. The fact that different language groups ‘get together’ (LANGUAGE-INDUCED MIND-GAME-WISE) in different ‘SUBSTITUTE REALITIES’ does not conflict with the fact that these differing SUBSTITUTE REALITIES offer a means to the language user group to share some crude inference of their respective sense-experiences.
The COMPLAINT of the EAST in regard to the WESTERN CULTURE languages is that the latter’s DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR structure imputes LOCAL AUTHORING of actions and developments which is where the WESTERN CULTURE concepts of GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT and PRODUCTION come from. These are abstractions which SUBSTITUTE for TRANSFORMATION and thus remove our awareness of our inclusion in TRANSFORMATION from the LANGUAGE-ACTIVE MIND. GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT and PRODUCTION, as has already been mentioned, are SIMPLISTIC and substitute for a reality that is far more COMPLEX, so in this sense, they are like Cuckoos eggs dropped into the nests of another very different system (An alternative metaphor is that of putting a VW engine in a Porsche). The system is way more comprehensive than the simple components we may use to come up with a crude working version.
That is, when we speak in terms of GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT and PRODUCTION, these are SIMPLE LOCAL, EXPLICIT CONCEPTS so that we are OBSCURING the reality of TRANSFORMATION which is NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT and thus NON-FRAGMENTARY. GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT and PRODUCTION, by contrast, are LOCAL, one-sided (MALE-ASSERTIVE) and thus the source of FRAGMENTING our representing of reality..
Joe, the anchor that has us LOCKED IN to FRAGMENTATION BY HIGH SWITCHING COSTS is the BELIEF IN INDEPENDENCE of the nation-state. The problem is NOT with the American concept of LIBERTY and the ethic of mutual support; i.e.
“Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
But the banding together locally does not imply INDEPENDENCE. Nature is full of groups that band together, like the Caribou with their mutual supporting and protecting while participating within a larger ecosystem with a great diversity of participants each of which band together for mutual support, BUT THERE IS NO SENSE THAT THESE MUTUAL SUPPORT GROUPS ARE INDEPENDENT. ON THE CONTRARY, it is evident that they are MUTUALLY DEPENDENT as is basic to the ecosystem structuring of Nature.
The abstract concept of INDEPENDENCE which may have its place in a ‘spiritual’ sense that can nevertheless remain consistent with the understanding of ONENESS-WITH-EVERYTHING as in ‘mitakuye oyasin’, has no place in a world that sense-experience informs us is intrinsically interdependent.
The ABERRANT THINKING that causes FRAGMENTATION comes in with LANGUAGE ARCHITECTURE that encourages BELIEF IN LOCAL AUTHORING. BELIEF in LOCAL AUTHORING, encouraged by the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR is the ROOT SOURCE of WESTERN CULTURE FRAGMENTATION. FRAGMENTATION leads to SUBOPTIMIZATION which is a DELUSION, … there is no place for SUBOPTIMIZATION in a world characterized by global interconnectedness and mutual interdependence. It’s not just that there is ‘no place for it’, it is that there’s NO PLACE IN SENSE EXPERIENCE REALITY for suboptimization; IT NEVER HAPPENS. IT CAN’T HAPPEN IN THE WORLD OF OUR SENSE-EXPERIENCE WHICH IS CHARACTERIZED BY GLOBAL INTERCONNECTEDNESS AND MUTUAL INTERDEPENDENCE!
So Joe, you are sitting atop the KEYSTONE log in the logjam, aka the USA, that is securing lock-in to continuing belief in the FALSE PREMISE of the INDEPENDENCE of the NATION-STATE, and the premise of INDEPENDENCE that we WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS BESTOW on things with the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and and GRAMMAR that imputes to them their own LOCAL AUTHORING POWER.
By now, in your experience of living in a complex interdependent world that is nevertheless blossoming forth with new intellectually stimulated forms of FRAGMENTATION, you KNOW FOR SURE that INDEPENDENCE is a POLITICAL MYTH and if there’s never been a more apt time and a more apt trusting demeanor as is manifest in you and your current PRESIDENCY, now is the time to drop the needed bombshell that INDEPENDENCE is a self-deceptive myth. As is the nature of “the BIG LIE”, it persists because few have the temerity to openly go against it particularly after it has become the longstanding popular belief. The BIG LIE is the toughest thing for us WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS to deal with, and the lie of LOCAL AUTHORING which is the EGO-based set up for the belief in INDEPENDENCE, is truly LOCKED IN BY HIGH SWITCHING COSTS. But we have much to gain by biting the bullet NOW and much to lose by pandering to our own ego which loves to go about in its EMPEROR’S NEW CLOTHES (“local AUTHORING” is declared in the same moment that INDEPENDENCE is delared). Those are all human ego pitfalls that we can overcome. In your life, you have been through some very difficult trials which have prepared you for major challenges which require going against the grain of popular opinion, initially, until the evident truth brings on the needed transformation.
Musicians like Leonard Cohen can use the media of poetry and music to get across the point that ‘Everybody knows the deal is rotten’, but my feeling is that there can’t be much tougher challenges that the challenge to the politician in bringing about the societal acknowledging that the concept of INDEPENDENCE is a politically contrived MYTH. I’m not saying it was not a positively intended MYTH; i.e. to rally people to come together to face huge challenges, but it is a MYTH that few reckoned would have the FRAGMENTATION downsides that it is progressively having. COMPETITION makes sense among BROTHERS where everyone wins by the mutually supportive developing of one another’s skills, however, COMPETITION for the purpose of EXCLUSION as in PURIFICATION so as to set up a group of ELITES is dysfunctional.
Lastly, I am not saying or suggesting that you are not aware of everything I have been saying in this note. My sense is that you are an ideal candidate who is ideally situated to further the shift in awareness to the emptiness of all claims to INDEPENDENCE and thus the emptiness to all claims of LOCAL AUTHORING and all BLAMING of LOCAL AUTHORS.
COVID 19 is one of those alleged LOCAL AUTHORS that is instead part of the BALANCE oriented relational dynamics that are basic to life. The remedy to IMBALANCE is REBALANCING. That is the shift that we are now looking for, as and if we turn away from our LOCAL AUTHOR based ANTI-PATHOGEN tactics and acknowledge instead the NONLOCAL and RELATIONAL dynamic of TRANSFORMATION, our inclusion therein calling for our co-cultivating and sustaining of BALANCE aka harmony aka resonance.
Joe, you might be wondering why I am writing to you with this suggestion since the centre of leadership of the USA may appear as the least likely place for the launching of a REPEAL of our WESTERN CULTURE exalting of belief in INDEPENDENCE. I don’t know the answer to that myself because the TRANSFORMATION that we are in need of does not come from a LOCAL AUTHOR and we have discovered that NEITHER is it the case that “THE MAN MAKES THE TIMES’ nor ‘THE TIMES MAKE THE MAN” since, as mentioned, there is no such thing as LOCAL AUTHORING in the transforming relational continuum. However, there are influences that help to condition the ambient field of consciousness which underlies the unfolding present and it is through lightning rods such as yourself that the evolution of social consciousness may be primed.
All the best, Joe
