OUR SCHIZOPHRENIA-INDUCING WESTERN CULTURE; Some Research Notes;
OVERVIEW: Our WESTERN CULTURE is unique in its INSISTENCE on reducing reality which is naturally and inherently NONLOCAL AND IMPLICIT (relational and fluid) to the LOCAL and EXPLICIT. This has required the development of our WESTERN CULTURE “Common Average European” language architecture (Whorf’s classification) which lets us serve up LOCAL and EXPLICIT representations of that which is inherently NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT. That is, our CAE languages allow us to construct SUBSTITUTE REALITIES featuring the LOCAL and EXPLICIT which Nietzsche has shown are produced by the DOUBLE ERROR combination of NAMING and GRAMMAR. While this language achieves its archotectural design purpose of serving up REPRESENTATIONS that are LOCAL and EXPLICIT, because this reduces REALITY to a SUBSTITUTE REALITY that is based on LOCAL FRAGMENTS, notionally with their own powers of AUTHORING actions such as GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT and PRODUCTION, the REAL SENSE-EXPERIENCE-REALITY of our inclusion in TRANSFORMATION becomes hidden from our intellectualizing psyche as we immerse ourselves, PSYCHOLOGICALLY, in a SUBSTITUTE REALITY that appears LOCAL and EXPLICIT.
This SUBSTITUTE REALITY, because it has reduced fluid reality to the LOCAL AND EXPLICIT, has had to reduce those most basic aspects of sense experience reality, “BALANCE” and “IMBALANCE” to the BINARY LOGIC ABSTRACTIONS of “EITHER” is “OR” is not. Balance cannot ‘live’ within the abstract world of BINARY LOGIC wherein something “EITHER IS OR IS NOT” since BALANCE lives in the RELATIONAL SPACE (i.e. in the transforming relational cotinuum). Our WESTERN CULTURE UNDERSTANDING OF REALITY, because we have opted for language that captures the LOCAL and EXPLICIT, has had to LET GO of its capability of forming representations wherein BALANCE plays a foundational role. For example, REBALANCING AGENTS such as the classic ROBIN HOOD and JEAN VALJEAN must be reduced, in language that only supports the LOCAL and EXPLICIT, to simple PATHOGENS, since BALANCE is purely relational and BEYOND REPRESENTATION in the LOCAL and EXPLICIT. Meanwhile, BALANCE is the very essence of WAVE-FIELD reality.
The key insight in these notes is that … “OUR COMPULSION TO SERVE UP A LOCAL AND EXPLICIT REPRESENTATION OF REALITY FORCES US TO LET GO OF AND “DROP OUT” THE FOUNDATIONAL ROLE OF ‘BALANCE’ AND ‘IMBALANCE’ IN OUR REALITY CONSTRUCTIONS. In other words, if we want to express reality in terms of the LOCAL and EXPLICIT, we cannot at the same time incorporate BALANCE and IMBALANCE. For example, if we want to be able to use language to represent the TOWN that is GROWING, since this is a LOCAL and EXPLICIT REPRESENTATION (as if in ABSOLUTE EMPTY and INFINITE SPACE), we have to LET GO of any ambitions we might have had to capture a representation of BALANCE or IMBALANCE since we LOSE that capability once we move into the realm of the LOCAL and EXPLICIT. This loss of the language based ability to capture BALANCE and IMBALANCE leaves us with a very FLAT mode of expression (as in FLAT EUCLIDIAN SPACE) and this FLATNESs derives from the reduction to the LOCAL and EXPLICIT which comes at the PRICE of the EXCLUSION of BALANCE and IMBALANCE.
The SENSE of BALANCE and IMBALANCE is strong in us when we experience inclusion in circumstances such as where children are starving from lack of food while nearby others are basking in abundance. BALANCE and IMBALANCE as may be sensed in such situations are NONLOCAL and RELATIONAL No matter how much detail we are able to put into the LOCAL and EXPLICIT, this does not informs us on BALANCE and IMBALANCE. By the same token, no amount of information on GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT and PRODUCTION can inform us on TRANSFORMATION since TRANSFORMATION is the INTERPLAY of BALANCE and IMBALANCE..
If you read this, I think you will BE ABLE TO SEE the UNEXPECTED understanding that explains why we WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS are so addicted to BINARY LOGIC when QUANTUM LOGIC, which is BALANCE based, clearly makes so much more sense (reconciles far better with our sense-experience). The SURPRISE ANSWER (and It has been a surprise for me) is that BECAUSE WE WANT TO EXPRESS THINGS IN LOCAL, EXPLICIT terms, WE ARE FORCED TO GIVE UP, IN OUR WESTERN CULTURE LANGUAGE BASED REPRESENTATIONS, THE CONVEYANCE OF BALANCE AND IMBALANCE SINCE THEY ARE CONCEPTS WHICH LIE BEYOND THE CAPTURE CAPABILITY OF LOCAL AND EXPLICIT REPRESENTATIONS THE RESULT IS THAT WE WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS, BECAUSE OF OUR DESIRE FOR THE LOCAL AND EXPLICIT, HAVE REDUCED (effectively “DUMBED DOWN”) OUR LANGUAGE TO THE POINT THAT WE DROP OUT THE CAPABILITY FOR CAPTURING BALANCE AND IMBALANCE. THIS “DROP OUT” of BALANCE and IMBALANCE of QUANTUM LOGIC TO GIVE WAY TO THE SIMPLE “EITHER/OR” OF BINARY LOGIC IS WHAT ‘SHOWS UP’ IN THE STORIES OF ROBIN HOOD AND JEAN VALJEAN.
The following is an INTRODUCTION to a RESEARCH effort in progress, on this and related phenomena.

NOTE: The reduction of representations of reality to the LOCAL and EXPLICIT is a reduction to ABSOLUTE, EMPTY AND INFINITE EUCLIDEAN SPACE which is incapable of representing BALANCE and IMBALANCE, the latter requiring NON-EUCLIDEAN CURVED SPACE.
WHAT AM I RESEARCHING? — I am researching what Friedrich Nietzsche and David Bohm (among others) discovered was an inbuilt tendency in our WESTERN CULTURE and LANGUAGE for FRAGMENTATION, which is something that I intuited from my teenage years. One of the tip-offs came from school and the exercise of Résumé writing. It made no sense to me to try to split myself out of the interdependent relational maze and make claims about MY AUTHORING of this and that achievement. I found that to be EGO based BULLSHIT.
I wasn’t thinking, at the time, of how FRAGMENTATIVE that such popular WESTERN CULTURE ‘make-believe’ was, but later picked up on that in the writings of Bohm and Nietzsche among others. Nietzsche, for me, put his finger right on the source of the problem by pointing out the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR as creates the notion of a LOCAL AUTHOR of actions and developments. This DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR is THE VERY FOUNDATION of WESTERN CULTURE REWARDS and PUNISHMENTS and is also the basis of the PATHOGEN concept in WESTERN CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM and in WESTERN MEDICINE’s ANTI-PATHOGEN approach.
I also explored the thinking of R. D. LAING (The Divided Self) and his closely aligned Anthropologist Jules Henry, who wrote ‘CULTURE AGAINST MAN’ which reinforced the view of Bohm and Nietzsche that we WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS were using language that was reducing the FLOWING nature of our sense-experience reality to a SUBSTITUTE REALITY based on NAMING-INSTANTIATED notional LOCAL THINGS-IN-THEMSELVES with GRAMMAR-given notional POWERS OF AUTHORING actions and developments. This allowed to use language to construct a SUBSTITUTE REALITY which portrayed reality in the DOUBLE ERROR based terms of LOCAL THINGS with their own powers of AUTHORING actions and developments such as ‘the TOWN’, which, instead of being understood as a ‘TOWNING’ in the TRANSFORMING LANDSCAPE’ as affirmed by our sense experience, instead became, thanks to our language architecture, a notional LOCAL TOWN THING-IN-ITSELF notionally with its own powers of AUTHORING growth and development, that ‘lived in’ an EMPTY SPACE OF INFINITE EXTENT. The EMPTY SPACE ABSTRACTION cleared the way for thinking in terms that the TOWN or any other NAMING instantiated thing-in-itself could be seen as the full and sole AUTHOR of its own ‘GROWTH’, ‘DEVELOPMENT’ and ‘PRODUCTION’.
In other words, our WESTERN CULTURE LANGUAGE was architected to construct a stand-alone, MALE-ASSERTIVE SUBSTITUTE REALITY that was what we had popularized as a device for representing ‘reality’ that we could share with this language scheme. Note that WE HAD TO SACRIFICE our sense experience of inclusion in an all-including TRANSFORMING space in using this language based construction of a SUBSTITUTE REALITY populated by notional LOCAL THINGS-IN-THEMSELVES, notionally with ‘their own powers’ of AUTHORING, GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT and PRODUCTION as if this were going on within an ABSOLUTE EMPTY SPACE OF INFINITE EXTENT. The abstract of the empty containing space was a necessary abstraction to set up the impression of the NAMING instantiated objects, as having their own LOCAL powers of AUTHORING GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT and PRODUCTION, as ‘independent persons’ or ‘independent nations’ or ‘independent businesses’ or ‘independent organizations’ whatever LOCAL AUTHORS we wanted to create with the (as Nietzche pointed out) “DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR’.
In this manner, we WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS contrive with language and grammar, a SUBSTITUTE REALITY that can be seen as something LOCAL and EXPLICIT and without dependency on the TRANSFORMING RELATIONAL CONTINUUM, … AND THIS IS WHAT WE ARE CONTINUING TO DO, HERE IN 2021.
While this LOCAL and EXPLICIT language-and-grammar based SUBSTITUTE REALITY ‘works’ as a means of those who are employing it, to share CARTOONS of reality; i.e. constructions of this SUBSTITUTE REALITY, for sharing conceptualizations that facilitate putting the users of this ‘SUBSTITUTE REALITY’ tool, ‘on the same page’. For example, where Modern physics and indigenous aboriginal culture adherents would be understand our human situation to be that of humanings within the transforming relational continuum aka the WAVE-FIELD aka the Tao, we WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS with our SUBSTITUTE REALITY construction are seeing ourselves as INDEPENDENT BEINGS within an ABSOLUTE EMPTY AND INFINITE SPACE that is a GEOMETRICAL ABSTRACTION termed EUCLIDIAN SPACE.
So, WHAT AM I RESEARCHING? … What am researching is the implications on our psyche and on our social relations of our (we WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS) having employed this ABSTRACT SUBSTITUTE REALITY as our OPERATIVE REALITY.
The first thing that comes to mind is the ARTIFICIAL FRAGMENTATION that comes with the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR constructions where, instead of acknowledging TOWNING in the TRANSFORMING relational continuum as affirmed by our sense-experience of inclusion in the TRANSFORMING relational continuum, … we let language and grammar take our psyche inside the SUBSTITUTE REALITY of ‘THE TOWN” which we now IMAGINE to be LOCAL THING-IN-ITSELF with its own capability of GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT and PRODUCTION.
Even though we are children of the universe and can look skyward and ‘sense’ that we are WITHIN the transforming relational continuum which is in no way reducible to something LOCAL and EXPLICIT since the whole thing is in continual flux, … we nevertheless have the intellectual capability for inventing and employing language in to construct such SUBSTITUTE REALITY.
While this is fair game to use such SUBSTITUTE REALITY construction as a TOOL for inferring the REAL REALITY that lies well beyond reach of this SUBSTITUTE REALITY, as Emerson noted, THE TOOL HAS RUN AWAY WITH THE WORKMAN, THE HUMAN WITH THE DIVINE.
WHAT I AM RESEARCHING, THEREFORE, IS WHAT PROBLEMS ARISE FOR US BY EMPLOYING THE ABSTRACT DOUBLE ERROR OF NAMING AND GRAMMAR BASED SUBSTITUTE REALITY, AS OUR ‘OPERATIVE REALITY’.
RIGHT OFF THE BAT, WE CAN LIST THE PROBLEM OF ‘FRAGMENTING REALITY’ AS BOTH BOHM AND NIETZSCHE HAVE IDENTIFIED AS A WESTERN CULTURE PROBLEM.
Since I am, in this note, simply describing my researches, I can share with you some of the ways in which we are ‘running into trouble’ with by FRAGMENTING REALITY.
* * *
-1- THE MALE-FEMALE SPLIT WE BUILD INTO LANGUAGE
Because of the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR fragmentation problem, we say things like; ‘the AVALANCHE is crashing down the mountainside. This is a FRAGMENTING that reduces our language capture of reality to a one-sided MALE-ASSERTIVE CONJUGATE and DROPS OUT the FEMALE OPENING CONJUGATE; i.e. the AVALANCHE is inseparable from the OPENING of a BIG HOLE in the terrain such that what is really going on is NEITHER the MALE ASSERTIVE CRASHING DOWN OF THE AVALANCUE NOR the OPENING OF A CONJUGATE BIG HOLE in the mountainside, but an overall TRANSFORMING of the terrain.
But as is evident, our WESTERN CULTURE language with its DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR, selects out the MALE ASSERTIVE CONJUGATE of action ON ITS OWN and presents that as REALITY, and his is FRAGMENTATION since in reality, what is going on is TRANSFORMATION which includes the FEMALE CONJUGATE of the OPENING OF A HOLE IN THE TERRAIN.
So, with our one-sided MALE-ASSERTIVE LANGUAGE we are FRAGMENTING REALITY and formulating a SUBSTITUTE REALITY based on the notions of GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT and PRODUCTION without mention of the FEMALE CONJUGATE HOLES that are part of sense-experience reality even though we drop the FEMALE out of the SUBSTITUTE REALITY we are constructing with our WESTERN CULTURE DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR based language approach.
This is a CRAZY MAKER since it encourages GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT and PRODUCTION ….. AS IF THESE WERE REAL ACTIONS, EVEN THOUGH THEY ARE NOT REAL AND WHAT IS GOING ON INSTEAD IS TRANSFORMATION OF THE LANDSCAPE.
The WESTERN CULTURE SOCIAL ENCOURAGEMENT OF PURSUING GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT AND PRODUCTION, which is part of the SUBSTITUTE REALITY, is a CRAZY MAKER because what our sense-experience is telling us is REALLY GOING on, which includes the FEMALE OPENING OF HOLES CONJUGATE, is TRANSFORMATION.
To put it bluntly, THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT AND PRODUCTION WITHIN SENSE-EXPERIENCE REALITY, … THOSE DYNAMICS ARE ABSTRACTIONS THAT ONLY OCCUR WITHIN AN ABSTRACT “SUBSTITUTE REALITY” BASED ON THE DOUBLE ERROR OF NAMING AND GRAMMAR WHEREIN ‘LOCAL AUTHORING’ AS IS IMPLICIT IN GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT AND PRODUCTION, IS DEEMED OPERATIVE (I.E. AS IN OUR LANGUAGE-STIMULATED IMAGINATION).
As we know, the focus on GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT and PRODUCTION by WESTERN CULTURE SELF-PERCEIVED “INDEPENDENT AUTHORS” such as individual people, nations and corporations, is FRAGMENTING THE HELL OUT OF OUR COMMON LIVING SPACE, thanks to the language and grammar MALE-FEMALE SPLIT where we liberate the MALE ASSERTIVE ASPECT and simply DROP OUT the FEMALE CONJUGATE as where we talk about the AVALANCHE crashing down the slope without mentioning the OPENING OF THE HOLE, these two CONJUGATES together informing us of the reality of TRANSFORMATION and the NON-REALITY (non-sense-experience reality) of GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT and PRODUCTION. But as we know, we have a system of language where we construct SIMPLIFIED SUBSTITUTE REALITIES (e.g. by dropping out the FEMALE CONJUGATE) featuring only the MALE ASSERTIVE aspect as with the AVALANCHE. By believing in the REALITY of the one-sided MALE ASSERTIVE CONCEPTS of GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT and PRODUCTION, we let go our sense-experience understanding of TRANSFORMATION as concerns the transforming relational continuum we share inclusion in. This is where the tendency to SCHIZOPHRENIA comes in because of our simple DROPPING OUT of the FEMALE aspect which continues to HAUNT our thoughts while we are busy pretending to be the AUTHORS of GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT and PRODUCTION as if we could forget that the realty is TRANSFORMATION that we are included in, which involves the FEMALE CONJUGATE that we WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS are simply IGNORING when we talk in terms of GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT and PRODUCTION. But the FEMALE we dropped out is now hanging in the back of our consciousness as a PHANTOM, the DEA ABSCONDITA and HAUNTING our thoughts as we speak in the one sided MALE-CONJUGATE TERMS of GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT and PRODUCTION.
* * *
The MALE PATHOGEN
In the WESTERN CULTURE, TRANSFORMATION is broken down into MALE and FEMALE conjugates and the FEMALE CONJUGATE is DISCARDED, leaving just the MALE-ASSERTIVE CONJUGATE free for the construction of SUBSTITUTE REALITY which is in terms of the LOCAL and EXPLICIT with GRAMMAR GIVEN POWERS OF GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT and PRODUCTION. This LANGUAGE based SUBSTITUTE REALITY based on the LOCAL and EXPLICIT that have the powers of GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT and PRODUCTION are a kind of HOUSE of CARDS language game.
In this WESTERN CULTURE LANGUAGE GAME, the dynamic of TRANSFORMATION is reduced to the MALE CONJUGATE so that ACTION as TRANSFORMATION is reduced to the MALE ASSERTIVE CONJUGATE. This BINARY LOGIC based SUBSTITUTE REALITY takes us away from the understanding of dynamics in the QUANTUM LOGIC relational terms of BALANCE and IMBALANCE as associates with WAVE-FIELD reality. BALANCE and IMBALANCE are NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT (relational) consistent with the WAVE-FIELD REALITY. Because the NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT is beyond LOCAL and EXPLICIT language capture and because WESTERN CULTURE has opted for a language architecture BASED ON THE LOCAL AND EXPLICIT (unlike the relational languages of indigenous aboriginals, Taoism/Buddhism and Advaita Vedanta), there is DROP OUT of the FEMALE CONJUGATE. This is the SACRIFICE that has to be made in order to have a language architecture based on the LOCAL and EXPLICIT
For example, if we want to speak in LOCAL and EXPLICIT terms about the AVALANCHE, we have to LET GO, in this form of representation, of the FEMALE CONJUGATE of the OPENING OF THE HOLE because that HOLE belongs to the NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT (relational) LANDSCAPE which is undergoing TRANSFORMATION.
The PRICE WE PAY to construct language that is in terms of LOCAL and EXPLICIT is to LET GO OF the FEMALE CONJUGATE and JUST DON”TE MENTION IT, in which case we are FREE to TALK ABOUT “GROWTH”, “DEVELOPMENT” AND “PRODUCTION”…. AS IF THESE “WERE REAL”, AND IN FACT WE CAN “MAKE THEM OUT TO BE REAL” BY CONTRUCTING OUR OWN “SUBSTITUTE REALITY” WHEREIN WE GIVE THEM A “FOUNDATIONAL ROLE”.
TOTO, WE ARE NOT IN KANSAS ANY MORE!
That is, our sense experience of reality is VERY DIFFERENT from the language based constructions we WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS construct using the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING AND GRAMMAR where we extract the MALE CONJUGATE and animate it on its own as in ‘the AVALANCHE crashed down the mountainside; i.e. NO HOLE, NO TRANSFORMATION, JUST MALE ASSERTIVE AVALANCHE-CRASHING ACTION., … a ONE-SIDED MALE CONJUGATE ONLY SUBSTITUTE REALITY as leads generally to the notions of GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT and PRODUCTION…. and IN THE PROCESS, ABANDONS our sense-experience supported REALITY of INCLUSION IN TRANSFORMATION.
Now, when it comes to speaking about RELATIONAL FORMS IN THE WAVE-FIELD FLOW SUCH AS HUMANINGS AND MICROBINGS WHICH WE COMMONLY RENAME ‘HUMANS’ AND ‘MICROBES’ WHICH WE ANIMATE WITH THE DOUBLE ERROR OF NAMING AND GRAMMAR WHEN WE ENTER INTO OUR WESTERN CULTURE LANGUAGE BASED SUBSTITUTE REALITY MODE, … THESE RELATIONAL FORMS WE HAVE REDUCED TO “LOCAL” AND “EXPLICIT” OBJECTS (but only in our language-based intellectual MIND-GAMES) we now see as INDEPENDENT BEING that are FULLY AND SOLELY RESPONSIBLE for “THEIR OWN ACTIONS AND DEVELOPMENT”, as in the case of the AVALANCHE and the HURRICANE. The FEMALE CONJUGATE IS GONE. She is the DEA ABSCONDITA that is naturally ‘still operative’ but we simply ‘leaver her out of the conversation’. WHY? Because if we want to get to language that supports articulation of the LOCAL and EXPLICIT, we have to do some DIFFERENTIATING as we do in CALCULUS which is the where we get the LOCAL DETAIL by TAKING DIFFERENCES to isolate the small local detail in the landscape so that we can say; oh, look, that volcano is getting bigger as it lays new overcoats of lava on itself. That is a whole lot SIMPLER that having to capture what is REALLY GOING on which is unbounded in space-time: i.e. the transforming relational continuum aka the WAVE-FIELD aka the Tao.
Meanwhile, that ineffable transforming relational continuum is the stuff of our sense-experience while the reductions to the LOCAL and EXPLICIT is the stuff of our INTELLECT and in this extreme cut-throat chopping down to the LOCAL and EXPLICIT, that serves up a SUBSTITUTE REALITY that is unique to us WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTs.
THINGS-IN-THEMSELVES, notionally with their own POWERS OF LOCAL AUTHORING OF ACTIONS AND DEVELOPMENTS, which are NOT REAL in SENSE-EXPERIENCE REALITY but which are REAL in our SUBSTITUTE HOUSE-OF-CARDS REALITY (which ‘hangs together because of the abstract assumptions we use in constructing it) is what gives us the abstract concept of the PATHOGEN, the AUTHOR OF BAD ACTIONS AND DEVELOPMENT, not to leave out the BENOGEN, the AUTHOR OF GOOD ACTS AND DEVELOPMENTS, … which are popular figures in our SUBSTITUTE REALITY CONSTRUCTIONS, that we need if we are going to avoid having to deal with BALANCE and IMBALANCE which invoke the NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT. WE JUST CAN’T BRING THE CONCEPTS OF BALANCE AND IMBALANCE INTO OUR LOCAL AND EXPLICIT SUBSTITUTE REALITY BECAUSE THEY ARE INNATELY NONLOCAL AND IMPLICIT/RELATIONAL
SO, WHEN IT COMES TO HEALTH AND ILLNESS AS BALANCE AND IMBALANCE, IN ORDER TO BE ABLE TO EMPLOY OUR SUBSTITUTE REALITY THAT IS LOCAL AND EXPLICIT, WE CAN ONLY EMPLOY ‘THINGS’ WHICH ARE LOCAL AND EXPLICIT SO THAT ‘IMBALANCE’ IS GOING TO HAVE TO GIVE WAY TO THE SUBSTITUTE OF THE ‘ATTCKING PATHOGEN’ (LOCAL AUTHOR OF DESTRUCTIVE ACTIONS AND DEVELOPMENTS) WHILE ‘BALANCE’ IS GOING TO HAVE TO GIVE WAY TO THE SUBSTITUTE OF THE ‘HELPFUL BENOGEN’ (LOCAL AUTHOR OF CONSTRUCTIVE ACTIONS AND DEVELOPMENTS.
THESE “SUBSTITUTIONS ARE FORCED ON US AS WE ENTER INTO THE LOCAL AND EXPLICIT SUBSTITUTE REALITY BECAUSE THE CONCEPTS OF BALANCE AND IMBALANCE ARE NONLOCAL AND IMPLICIT AND WILL SCREW UP THE EXACTNESS AND PRECISION THAT WE ARE GETTING WITHIN OUR LOCAL AUTHORING BASED SUBSTITUTE REALITY. As in mathematics, when we want DETAIL and PRECISION we use DIFFERENTIATION to isolate LOCAL DTAIL and to do this we have to LET GO OF all those aesthetic curves as we find in TRANSFORMATION like the aesthetic curves in DESTERN SAND DUNING which HAVE TO GO when we start talking in terms of DUNES that SHIFT ACROSS THE DESERT FLOOR. There is a price to pay in AESTHETICS when we want to reduce our focus to the LOCAL and EXPLICIT which we GET TO with the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR. SEE THAT DUNE GROW AND SHIFT ACROSS THE DESERT FLOOR? If we can, we can thank BINARY LOGIC the FIGURE and GROUND SPLIT which allows us to talk about the MALE ASSERTIVE movement of THE DUNE as if it were a LOCAL THING-IN-ITSELF with its own GRAMMAR GIVEN POWERS OF AUTHORING ACTION AND DEVELOPMENT.
In the case of our WESTERN CULTURE conception of HEALTH and ILLNESS, we CANNOT use BALANCE and IMBALANCE because that screws up our focusing down and in on the LOCAL and EXPLICIT, but we can invent a MINI LOCAL AND EXPLICIT form of IMBALANCE which we can call a PATHOGEN which would otherwise be seen as a development within the IMBALANCE which is unfortunately NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT.
We know that Modern physics understands that what we are calling ‘microbes’ are condensations of the electromagnetic field or resonances which is a kind of sustained BALANCING but all of this is VERY NONLOCAL AND RELATIONAL so that in order to get LOCAL and EXPLICIT, we must invent a PATHOGEN to explain IMBALANCE but in a LOCAL and EXPLICIT CONTEXT to fit in into our LOCAL and EXPLICIT SUBSTITUTE REALITY.
HERE WE HAVE IT! THE “MALE PATHOGEN”. NOW WE ARE ABLE TO TALK ABOUT IMBALANCE IN TERMS WHICH ARE LOCAL AND EXPLICIT. ROBIN HOOD AND JEAN VALJEAN, WERE CLEARLY INCLUSIONS IN THE NONLOCAL AND RELATIONAL SOCIAL DYNAMIC AND WERE SWEPT UP IN A REBALANCING MOVEMENT, BUT ONCE THE BEADY VOYEUR EYES OF THE LOCAL AND EXLICIT SUBSTITUTE REALITY SUPPORTERS CAME ON THE SCENE, THERE WAS NO CHOICE BUT TO REDUCE THOSE REBALANCERS (A NONLOCAL AND IMPLICIT CONCEPTUALIZATION) TO PATHOGENS (A LOCAL AND EXPLICIT CONCEPTUALIZATION).
THE “MALE PATHOGEN” PROVIDES USERS OF THE WESTERN CULTURE SUBSTITUTE REALITY BASED ON THE LOCAL AND EXPLICIT, THE MEANS OF COMING UP WITH A LOCAL AND EXPLICIT REPRESENTATION OF ILLNESS AMENABLE TO THE LOCAL AND EXPLICIT FOUNDATIONS OF THE SUBSTITUTE REALITY EMPLOYED BY WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS.
IF WE WERE TO REVERT TO THE SENSE-EXPERIENCE BASED UNDERSTANDING IN THE RELATIONAL TERMS OF IMBALANCE AND BALANCE, WE HAVE TO SET ASIDE THE FOUNDATIONAL ROLE GIVEN TO THE LOCAL AND EXPLICIT IN WESTERN CULTURE LANGUAGE-BASED SUBSTITUTE REALITY.
NOW IS THE TIME TO DO IT BECAUSE OUR POPULAR UNDERSTANDING OF THE COVID 19 PANDEMIC IS CURRENTLY SUFFERING FROM THE OVER-SIMPLIFICATION wherein we are REGARDING COVID 19 AS A PATHOGEN INSTEAD OF AS IMBALANCE IN THE MICROBIAL ASSEMBLAGE. TOTO, WE ARE STUCK IN SUBSTITUTE REALITY ONCE AGAIN, AND KANSAS IS BECKONING!
