There is a TWIST in the WESTERN PSYCHE that is IRONIC in that WE WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS are using what we falsely believe (thanks to EGO) are our own POWERS OF LOCAL AUTHORING to attack OURSELVES as in SCHIZOPHRENIA mentioned by Bohm as part of our obsession with FRAGMENTATION by way of the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR (which imputes LOCAL AUTHORING).
Because we believe that we have the power to AUTHOR good deeds and live our lives as LOCAL BENEVOLENCE-GENERATORS, the symmetry of BINARY LOGIC demands that there be a POLAR OPPOSITE of LOCAL PATHOLOGY GENERATORS or PATHOGENS.
Both MODERN PHYSICS and THE EAST understand reality in the AUTHORLESS terms of relational TRANSFORMATION as invokes QUANTUM LOGIC which, being relational comprehends the world dynamic in terms of BALANCE between RESONANT relations and DISSONANT relations or ‘LOVE and STRIFE’ in Heraclitus’ terms. Since RESONANCE and DISSONANCE are NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT relations, the abstract notion of the LOCAL AUTHOR has no place in this reality, thus indigenous aboriginal social well-being is NOT pursued by the rewarding of BENEVOLENCE AUTHORS and punishing of PATHOLOGY AUTHORS, but by encouraging relational resonance and discouraging relational dissonance through ‘healing circles’.
In WESTERN CULTURE, because of the belief in LOCAL AUTHORING, there is an innate tendency to PURIFICATIONISM wherein relational dissonance is perceived as being AUTHORED by PATHOGENS so that the REMEDY is the tracking down and ELIMINATION of PATHOGENS. So, because our EGO insists on belief in LOCAL AUTHORING social the emergence of social dissonance is assumed to be PATHOGEN sourced and the remedy is therefore the identification and deactivating of PATHOGENS.
If ‘the EASTERN relational balance and imbalance is the real reality, and it HAS been backed up by Modern physics, the search for the PATHOGEN will have to end up by identifying OURSELVES. As Pogo of the comic strip observed, ‘we have found the enemy and it is us’. Modern physics agrees. The PATHOGEN concept is BINARY LOGIC generated ABSTRACTION. In this relational world, there is relational dissonance but NO PATHOGENS; i.e. NO LOCAL AUTHORS OF actions and developments, BENEFICIAL OR HARMFUL. The ‘LOCAL AUTHOR’ bit is the part that has to go but in WESTERN CULTURE it has persisted because many INFLATED EGOs would suffer deflation if LOCAL AUTHORING were to be exposed as the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR ABSTRACTION (illusion) that it is.
This WESTERN CULTURE preservation of the concept of the PATHOGEN which is anchored in place by EGO is HOLDING OFF WESTERN CULTURE understanding of health and illness as relational resonance and relational dissonance, whether in the social dynamic or in the dynamics of the microbial assemblage.
WESTERN MEDICINE as well as WESTERN JUSTICE can thus be BLIND to the reality that THERE ARE NO SUCH THINGS AS PATHOGENS and that health and illness associate with relational resonance and dissonance in the social collective and in the microbial assemblage.
In the indigenous aboriginal culture as in Modern physics, as Schroedinger observes, SUBJECT AND OBJECT ARE ONLY ONE in which case there are no PATHOGENS or in other words, NO LOCAL and EXPLICIT AUTHORS of PATHOLOGY but there is relational dissonance which is NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT (relational) the remedy for which is the recultivating of harmony/resonance as in ‘healing circles’. Sure, the indigenous aboriginal may shoot and eliminate a trouble-maker he will not assume LOCAL AUTHORSHIP so that the elimination is only a short term expedient while the remedy lies in the resolving of relational dissonance that channels through individuals but is not ‘locally authored’
The continuing WESTERN CULTURE practice of identifying “the REAL, LOCAL, EXPLICIT AUTHOR OF PATHOLOGY” aka “the PATHOGEN” is chasing at PHANTOMS since we, the social collective and the co-authors of relational dissonance that discharges through an individual ‘lightning rod’ or ‘channeler’ but this does not make the ‘lightning rod’ the AUTHOR. The “LIGHTNING ROD” or ‘CHANNELER’ of NONLOCAL relational dissonance is NOT A PATHOGEN (LOCAL AUTHOR) of the dissonance, thus the ANTI-PATHOGEN approach is a form of DELUSION or SCHIZOPHRENIA as Bohm has pointed out is endemic in our WESTERN CULTURE FRAGMENTATION-ADDICTED social collective.

Through continuing researches into the evident popular use of a DUMBED DOWN REALITY among ‘us’ WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS, the following KEYSTONE INSIGHT has ‘surfaced’.
BINARY LOGIC is INTRINSICALLY INFERIOR to QUANTUM LOGIC yet, thanks to WESTERN CULTURE LANGUAGE USAGE, it has risen to a MISPLACED POPULAR DOMINANCE, not simply DUMBING DOWN the quality of UNDERSTANDING (substituting intellectual abstraction based understanding for sense-experience grounded understanding), but by SHORT CIRCUITING, AS IN “BLOCKING” the attainment of THE INNATELY MORE COMPREHENSIVE QUANTUM LOGIC which furnishes understanding that is “BALANCE” based. This BINARY LOGIC “SHORT CIRCUIT” or “DUMBING DOWN” is characteristic of WESTERN CULTURE LANGUAGE USAGE and comes with the abstract notion of LOCAL AUTHORING.
LOCAL AUTHORING implies BINARY LOGIC wherein something “EITHER” exists “OR” does not exist. This is distinct from QUANTUM LOGIC wherein something “BOTH” exists “AND” does not exist, as describes forms with a TRANSFORMING relational continuum. For example, the transforming landscape is MORE REAL in our sense-experience than the relational forms that are continually emerging and subducting. It is only our visual perception coupled with our LANGUAGE that subjectively REIFIES relational forms as are continually outwelling and inwelling into and from the transforming relational continuum we share inclusion in.
For example, a VOLCANIC CONE that ‘pops up’ on THE FLAT PRAIRIE LANDSCAPE is still included in the TRANSFORMING LANDSCAPE (that is QUANTUM LOGIC) but as soon as one SWITCHES to speaking of the GROWTH of the VOLCANO, we depart from SENSE-EXPERIENCE REALITY on inclusion in the TRANSFORMING LANDSCAPE … AND ENTER INTO A SUBSTITUTE REALITY WHEREIN THE NONLOCAL AND IMPLICIT DYNAMIC OF TRANSFORMATION IS REPLACED BY A SUBSTITUTE REALITY THAT IS LOCAL AND EXPLICIT, making the GROWTH of LOCAL THINGS “APPEAR” POSSIBLE.
The word “APPEAR” is in quotation marks since it is only with a LANGUAGE BASED SUBSTITUTE REALITY THAT THERE ARE “LOCAL THINGS” that “GROW” as if within an ABSOLUTE EMPTY AND INFINITE CONTAINING SPACE. In other words, while the all-including TRANSFORMATION is what our sense-experience is informing us is REALITY, the combination of VISION, INTELLECTUAL ABSTRACTION (reduction of relational forms to notional ‘LOCAL THINGS-IN-THEMSELVES’) and GRAMMAR equips us for constructing a SUBSTITUTE REALITY featuring LOCAL, EXPLICIT THINGS-IN-THEMSELVES with GRAMMAR-given powers of actions, GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT and PRODUCTION. Only in the intellectual abstraction of the SUBSTITUTE REALITY do LOCAL and EXPLICIT FIGURES APPEAR to exist ‘in their-own-right’ and have GRAMMAR-given powers of AUTHORING actions such as GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT and PRODUCTION.
So, … the language-based inventing of LOCAL GROWTH comes by way of a ‘DOUBLE ERROR’ (as pointed out by Nietzsche), the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR where we create (within the ABSTRACT PICTURES/REPRESENTATIONS that words ‘conjure up’ in the PSYCHE), the impression of LOCAL AUTHORING. NOTE THAT QUANTUM LOGIC retains, consistent with sense-experience, the UNITY of FIGURE and GROUND AS ONE (i.e. MATTER-and-FIELD-as-ONE) and does not fall into the DOUBLE ERROR of the NAMING and GRAMMAR based SPLITTING APART of FIGURE and GROUND..
BINARY LOGIC is a simple logic that, when we use it, it simply SHUTS THE DOOR on FURTHER THINKING as in ‘INNOCENT or GUILTY’. Did Jean Valjean steal the loaf of bread or did he not?
We WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS tend to MOCK those who want to include the ‘extenuating circumstances’ because BINARY LOGIC is the WESTERN CULTURE POPULAR STANDARD for “making sense” of our complex experience
QUANTUM LOGIC, on the other hand, is about BALANCE. Where BINARY LOGIC splits FIGURE and GROUND into TWO, QUANTUM LOGIC accepts FIGURE and GROUND as ONE.
The relative merits of BINARY and QUANTUM logic can be seen in the simple example of the HURRICANE that develops in the ATMOSPHERE.
BINARY logic represents the HURRICANE as something that EITHER exists OR does not exist and this abstract concept of LOCAL EXISTENCE psychologically SPLITS the HURRICANE out of the overall reality (the transforming relational continuum) where we use GRAMMAR to notionally ANIMATE IT (attribute movement and development to it) as if it were a separate thing existing in its own right. The existence of a HURRICANE is established by the question; … IS THIS A HURRICANE OR NOT? THIS IS BINARY LOGIC and we employ it to establish the LOCAL EXISTENCE OF ‘THINGS’, subsequent to which we can use GRAMMAR to DESCRIBE THE MOVEMENT, GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT and PRODUCTION as if “AUTHORED” by these LOCALLY EXISTING THINGS.
BINARY LOGIC is thus a TOOL for constructing REPRESENTATIONS of reality based on notional LOCAL THINGS-IN-THEMSELVES with GRAMMAR-given powers of AUTHORING actions and development.
BINARY LOGIC thus serves as the basis for ARCHITECTING a form of ARTICULABLE (EFFABLE) REPRESENTATION, a means of SHARING some sort of account of our sense experience of inclusion in the transforming relational continuum aka ‘our life experience’. We call this SHARING TOOL “LANGUAGE”.
We have BINARY LOGIC and we have QUANTUM LOGIC and we can capture our impressions of REALITY using EITHER.
BINARY LOGIC is inherently ambiguous with respect to its deploying in representing natural phenomena; e.g. if we use MALE ASSERTING to say the HURRICANE is STIRRING up the ATMOSPHERE, we IMPLY, as a kind of GHOST possibility, the FEMALE INDUCTIVE conjugate, that the ATMOSPHERE is stirring up the HURRICANE.
This conjugate splitting of reality into Male and Female ambiguity arises from the incapacity of NAMING and GRAMMAR based language architecture to capture SPHERICAL SPACE reality, our sense-experience reality of inclusion in the WAVE-FIELD, the transforming relational continuum, reality as understood in Modern physics.
Our visual sensing is easily and quickly given representation in terms of LOCAL, EXPLICIT FORMS (its not the forms which are LOCAL and EXPLICIT but our REPRESENTATIONS of them) which can either be CLOSED as in MALE-ASSERTING (e.g. the TOWN is GROWING, .. or FEMALE-ACCOMMODATING (e.g. the WILDERNESS is SHRINKING). The OPTION to split our REPRESENTATION OF REALITY into TWO CONJUGAL POLAR OPPOSITES opens up AMBIGUITY in the language we use to share our experiences of reality and thus complicates the challenge of coming to some common understanding of the reality we share inclusion in. While the WESTERN CULTURE unwritten rule is to employ the MALE-ASSERTIVE branch of the BIPOLAR optional representation of reality, the polar opposite option of the FEMALE ACCOMMODATING reality representing option is also an option and has a presence like a loose cannon on a ship’s deck, making unexpected interventions in the language based representation process.
This ambiguity arises only in our WESTERN CULTURE because we employ language architecture that reduces our experience of inclusion in TRANSFORMATION to the DOUBLE ERROR terms of NAMING and GRAMMAR wherein we experience reality (or try to) in terms of NAMING-given LOCAL THINGS-IN-THEMSELVES with GRAMMAR-given powers of AUTHORING actions and development. This scheme SPLITS “our language based representation of reality (the transforming relational continuum aka the WAVE-FIELD aka the TAO, into TWO BINARY LOGIC based CONJUGATES we call MATTER and SPACE and in expressing them with BINARY LOGIC, we define them as MUTUALLY EXCLUSIVE of one another, whereupon the AMBIGUITY arises as to which one is in the ‘DRIVER’S SEAT’? We are left with an open choice of “EITHER” the HURRICANE stir up the ATMOSPHERE? ….”OR” the ATMOSPHERE stirs up the HURRICANE. This “BINARY LOGIC AMBIGUITY” is inescapable WHEN we INSIST upon a language architecture that REDUCES our REPRESENTATION of reality to terms that are LOCAL and EXPLICIT (MECHANISTIC) instead of following the practice of the EAST and Modern physics where language architecture must be able to deal with the FLUID and thus NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT nature of the transforming relational continuum as being a basic feature of reality.
So, it is WORTH KEEPING MIND that the AMBIGUOUS OPTION of MALE-ASSERTIVE and FEMALE-ACCOMMODATIVE “REPRESENTATION APPROACHES” for language based expression of “REALITY” ONLY EMERGE when we insist on a language design architecture that embodies a reduction to the LOCAL and EXPLICIT. In those language architectures that preserve the fluid nature of the TRANSFORMING RELATIONAL CONTINUUM, the TROUBLESOME AMBIGUITY DOES NOT ARISE. And I say ‘TROUBLESOME AMBIGUITY’ because this undeclared CHOICE of reality representations really does throw a wrench into the pursuit of coming to an common understanding of the transforming relational continuum we share inclusion in. While some of us are, for example, assuming that the HURRICANE is stirring up the ATMOSPHERE (the Male-Assertive reality option), some (others) of us are assuming that the ATMOSPHERE is stirring up the HURRICANE (the Female-Inductive reality option.
This split manifests in the polarized division between CONSERVATIVE and LIBERAL since the former believe that the INDIVIDUAL is the ASSERTIVE AUTHOR of organized actions and developments while the latter believe that the SOCIAL COLLECTIVE is the INDUCTIVE AUTHOR of organized actions and developments.
The MYTH of the PATHOGEN derives from USING BINARY LOGIC to reduce RELATIONAL IMBALANCE to POLAR OPPOSITION.0
The PATHOGEN is BINARY LOGIC and the REBALANCER is QUANTUM LOGIC
I know that many if not MOST people have ‘faith’ in VACCINES.
The APPARENT success of VACCINES is like the APPARENT SUCCESS of POLICE in dealing with APPARENT ‘PATHOGENS’
There is a deeper understanding upstream from our BINARY LOGIC.
If the gap between RICH and POOR becomes large, it induces REBALANCERS which are initially called PATHOGENS (CRIMINALS, ROBBERS) but if the GAP between RICH and POOR continues to build to huge levels, there may be REVOLUTION which is a radical REBALANCER which lowers the TENSIONS of IMBALANCE which is the amplifying the rate of emergence of REBALANCERS which are popularly identified as PATHOGENS.
AUTHOR’s PREFACE: There is no way to DIRECTLY capture a REPRESENTATION of REALITY, in this COMMON AVERAGE EUROPEAN (CAE) LANGUAGE (as Benjamin Whorf calls it) that I am herewith using. This is because REALITY is inclusion in TRANSFORMATION and TRANSFORMATION is NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT while our CAE languages are archtiected for delivering representations in terms of the LOCAL and EXPLICIT. Thus while the REALITY of TRANSFORMATION is NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT (which is why indigenous aboriginal language architectures employ a relational architecture which allows inference of the NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT), our WESTERN CULTURE LANGUAGE based REPRESENTATIONS are not ‘OF REALITY’ but are REPRESENTATIONS of a SUBSTITUTE REALITY based on the LOCAL and EXPLICIT. Our WESTERN CULTURE language based representations are constructions of SUBSTITUTE REALITIES which “ARE” LOCAL and EXPLICIT. It should therefore be kept in mind by the reader, that while I am writing this essay in a CAE LANGUAGE ARCHITECTURE, I am constrained by this language to representations that have a LOCAL and EXPLICIT BASE but which may be used to INFER the NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT as is the basis of TRANSFORMATION. For example, if I employ specific statements based on the LOCAL and EXPLICIT (which is all this CAE LANGUAGE ALLOWS as its ‘base-case’ means of representation, I will only be using this as an expedient for developing the relational inference necessary for capturing TRANSFORMATION with is NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT. Thus, if I say ‘the TOWN is GROWING’, I am intending, by inference, that ‘the LANDSCAPE is TRANSFORMING.
We WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS have constructed a whole SUBSTITUTE REALITY that is based on the LOCAL and EXPLICIT from which we COULD INFER the NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT sense-experience-affirmed REALITY of TRANSFORMATION, … but our habit has been to employ the REDUCED-TO-LOCAL-AND-EXPLICIT “SUBSTITUTE REALITY” which is a PROBLEM. As Bohm and Nietzsche point out, it is a problem that is DRIVING us WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS CRAZY by FRAGMENTING REALITY with the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR. When we say ‘the TOWN is GROWING, our SENSE-EXPERIENCE-REALITY is that ‘the LANDSCAPE is TRANSFORMING’ which implies QUANTUM LOGIC wherein FIGURE-and-GROUND-are-ONE (the TOWN and the surrounding LANDSCAPE are ONE). By using the term GROW, engender with our language a SUBSTITUTE REALITY based on the LOCAL and EXPLICIT and ‘forget about’ our sense-experience REALITY of inclusion in TRANSFORMATION which is NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT.
Sine I am using the CAE language, ENGLISH, the reader may keep in mind that the REALITY I am speaking of, albeit with terms that ‘SOUND’ LOCAL and EXPLCIT such as ‘the HUMAN BEING’ are employed with a matrix of relations such that the TAKE-AWAY is purely relational as is necessary for capturing reality that is TRANSFORMATION BASED. With this comment, I am more or less replicating what Wittgenstein is saying as follows;
6.54 My propositions are elucidatory in this way: he who understands me finally recognizes them as senseless, when he has climbed out through them, on them, over them. (He must so to speak throw away the ladder, after he has climbed up on it.)
He must surmount these propositions; then he sees the world rightly.
7.0 Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one must be silent. (“Wovon man nicht sprechen kann, darüber muss man schweigen”),
–Wittgenstein, Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus
This AUTHOR’s PREFACE is just to point out to the reader that while inclusion in TRANSFORMATION is our sense-experience, our LANGUAGE-based representation in terms of the LOCAL and EXPLICIT gives representations of a CONSTRUCTION based SUBSTITUTE REALITY that is good only for INFERENCE even though we WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS are making the major mistake of employing it as our OPERATIVE REALITY. By our ‘closing our mind to the reality that there is no such thing as a TOWN THAT IS GROWING and that we are the AUTHORS of this alleged GROWTH; i.e.our sense-experience affirms that the LANDSCAPE is TRANSFORMING and we are included in this TRANSFORMATION.
* * *
FORWARD: Since sense-experience reality is something that naturally precedes intellectual interpretation and language-based reality representation, it might be thought of as a kind of anchor that keeps our intellectual representations of reality from ‘drifting’ too far from the ‘basic sense-experience reality’. However, there is an abundance of language-based representations and interpretations and speculations and imaginings that may not be ‘grounded’ in sense experience, so that what we take to be ‘reality’ can become highly ‘speculative’. Rumors in the street can lead to people being lynched for crimes they did not commit, and much much more so that what ‘we take to be reality’ is subject to considerable error.
We WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS have a particular way of constructing a SUBSTITUTE REALITY that SIDESTEPS the INEFFABLE nature of the transforming relational continuum that we share inclusion in. This WESTERN CULTURE SUBSTITUTE REALITY approach differs from the language based reality representing approaches of indigenous aboriginal cultures in that we WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS employ FRAGMENTATION as a means of sidestepping the INEFFABLE nature of the transforming relational continuum whereas indigenous aboriginal language and EASTERN (Taoist/Buddhist and Advaita Vedanta) language architectures employ an approach where FRAGMENTING is only used in the intermediate step of constructing relational webs that, while they employ LOCAL FRAGMENTS, do so only in a preliminary manner for constructing webs of relations. For example, while the WESTERN CULTURE may use the word TOWN to impute a LOCALLY EXISTING THING-IN-ITSELF (FRAGMENT of REALITY) that can be empowered by GRAMMAR that imputes to it its own powers of AUTHORING actions and developments, the indigenous aboriginal culture employs verb-based language where TOWNING signifies a relational dynamic WITHIN THE TRANSFORMING RELATIONAL CONTINUUM in keeping with the sense-experience reality wherein EVERYTHING IS IN FLUX.
THE WESTERN CULTURE APPROACH TO REPRESENTING REALITY WITH LANGUAGE does not retain the innately fluid nature of sense experience reality but constructs a SUBSTITUTE REALITY that gives a FOUNDATIONAL ROLE to notional LOCAL THINGS-IN-THEMSELVES or FRAGMENTS of REALITY; for example, ‘the TOWN is GROWING’, rather than as in indigenous language based representation which gives the equivalent of TOWNING-in-the-TRANSFORMING LANDSCAPE, retaining the understanding as in WAVE-FIELD dynamics that ‘everything is in flux’. In this case, QUANTUM LOGIC where FIGURE-and-GROUND-are-ONE remains prevalent and there is no ‘step down’ to a BINARY LOGIC based SUBSTITUTE REALITY where FIGURE-and-GROUND-are TWO.
The WESTERN CULTURE APPROACH to LANGUAGE based REPRESENTATION is cultivating a LOCK-IN to BINARY LOGIC which is the source of psychological FRAGMENTATION. That our WESTERN CULTURE social collective is experiencing the continuing advancement of EGO-based FRAGMENTATION is the warning message of both David Bohm and Friedrich Nietzsche.

… Western Indusrial Society… 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 …” – Martine Dodds-Taljard, systems scientist.
We WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS have architected language NOT from the point of view of our being included in the transforming relational continuum, but from the point of view of a VOYEUR OBSERVER of REALITY which PSYCHOLOGICALLY SPLITS OUT THE OBSERVER FROM THE OBSERVED. As Nietzsche points out, this VOYEUR approach introduces a BINARY LOGIC division between the OBSERVER and the OBSERVED wherein we conceive of the OBSERVED as the LOCAL AUTHOR of its own actions and development.
The one-sided MALE-ASSERTIVE concepts of GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT and PRODUCTION derive from the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR (e.g. “The AVALANCHE came crashing down the mountain, destroying the village below”). What is missing is the HOLE that was opened in the side of the mountain and the understanding that the opening of the hole (the FEMALE ACCOMMODATING) together with the MALE ASSERTING constitute TRANSFORMATION). Meanwhile the psychological abstraction of RATIO introduces the ONE-SIDED MALE-ASSERTIVE concept of RATIO aka REASON as implies LOCAL AUTHORING (i.e. where some LOCAL BEING THING is growing LARGER)
“Nothing indeed has exercised a more simple power of persuasion hitherto than the error of Being, as it was formulated by the Eleatics for instance: in its favour are every word and every sentence that we utter!—Even the opponents of the Eleatics succumbed to the seductive powers of their concept of Being. Among others there was Democritus in his discovery of the atom. “Reason” in language!—oh what a deceptive old witch it has been! I fear we shall never be rid of God, so long as we still believe in grammar.” —Nietzsche, “Twilight of the Idols, or, How to Philosophize with a Hammer”
OUR WESTERN CULTURE SOCIAL COLLECTIVE IS CURRENTLY ON A BUSTRIP TO HELL. That is not just me saying this but respected philosophers like David Bohm and Friedrich Nietzsche, and since only a small minority of people are interested in reading such philosophical views, such views do NOT make a significant impact on the continuing BUSTRIP TO HELL we WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS are currently moving forward on. ALMOST NOTHING is being visibly done about this on any significant social collective scale.
Bohm describes it as FRAGMENTATION and it crops up in many different ways in our society.
This message is simply to say that COVID VACCINATIONS ARE A PROBLEM and NOT A SOLUTION. What I mean is this. ILLNESS or STRIFE that ARISES from RELATIONAL IMALANCE is not going to be resolved by ATTACKING PERCEIVED PATHOGENS SUCH AS CRIMINALS or such as COVID 19 because the basic problem is RELATIONAL IMBALANCE and NOT the alleged PATHOGEN.
For example, the MISTAKEN IDENTIFICATION of C. DIFFICILE as a PATHOGEN leads to the administering of all kinds of ANTI-BIOTICS to kill off the C. DIFFICILE, an approach which DOES NOT WORK. WHY DON”T THE ANTI-BIOTICS WORK? Because C. DIFFICILE only proliferates in the body in the wake of taking anti-biotics (for something else) which throws the healthy-because-balanced microbial assemblage OUT OF BALANCE.
The illness in this example (colitis) is due to an OUT-OF-BALANCE microbial assemblage in the gut and the SENSIBLE REMEDY is to REBALANCE the microbial assemblage, for example with Fecal Microbiota Transplantation. This restores missing members of the normally healthy and balanced microbial assemblage The PROBLEM is NOT the PROLIFERATING of C. DIFFICILE, that is just the manifesting of IMBALANCE in the microbial assemblage. The PROBLEM is IMBALANCE in the microbial assemblage which is resolves with FECAL MICRIOBIOTA TRANSPLANTATION.
Colitis does NOT call for the administering of an ANTI-BIOTIC to kill the PROLIFERATING C. DIFFICILE because that proliferation is simply manifesting IMBALANCE in the microbial assemblage as a result of the administering of ANTI-BIOLITICS.
Fecal Microbiota Transplantation is effectively 100% effective if the patient still has the spark of life in them.
WHAT DOES THIS HAVE TO DO WITH COVID 19?
WHAT IT IS TELLING US IS THAT HEALTH ISSUES THAT DERIVE FROM IMBALANCE ARE MISIDENTIFIED AS “THE ATTACK OF PATHOGENS”.
If there are many ROBIN HOODS emerging in our society, the common WESTERN CULTURE interpretation is to interpret this as the PROLIFERATION OF PATHOGENS because our ‘survival of the fittest’ society believes that it is NATURAL to have extreme RICH and POOR IMBALANCE, but the more extreme that imbalance becomes, the more POLICE we need to protect the RICH from the POOL, and as we have seen, the RICH, like Marie Antoinette, are liable to respond to sighs of ACUTE IMBALANCE with “LET THEM EAT CAKE”.
Yes, imagine that you yourself are designing language. What a tough job to capture in language our complex sense-experience!
EAST and WEST split along the same lines as Modern physics and Newtonian physics; i.e.
WEST: We can architect our language making RELATIONS the most basic concept and in this case develop understanding by constructing a matrix of relations. e.g. there is TOWNING in the TRANSFORMING RELATIONAL CONTINUUM in which case we can acknowledge that we are treating only a portion of a much larger ‘animal’ (overall transforming relational UNUM) so that when we speak of TOWNING, we are thinking of a kind of PIMPLE that is developing on a larger body where that PIMPLE is just the CHANGING APPEARANCE of the larger body in the same sense as the developing spot of mold on a loaf of bread that signals to us that the bread is undergoing TRANSFORMATION so that the real dynamic is NONLOCAL and relational and the change is NOT LOCAL and EXPLICIT as it may appear.
EAST: The spot of mold is NOT a BINARY LOGIC based SEPARATE THING-IN-ITSELF as it would be imputed to be with BINARY LOGIC, but instead requires QUANTUM LOGIC to capture it where FIGURE (spot of mold) and GROUND (loaf of bread) ARE ONLY ONE and it is simply APPEARANCE FORTIFIED BY NAMING and GRAMMAR (the DOUBLE ERROR) that encourages us to REDUCE it with RATIONAL THINKING to FIGURE-and-GROUND-as-TWO. As Schroedinger says, SUBJECT and OBJECT are ONLY ONE). THERE IS NO FRAGMENTATION GOING ON HERE OR ANYWHERE ELSE IN SENSE EXPERIENCE, FRAGMENTATION OCCURS ONLY IN A PSYCHOLOGICAL “SUBSTITUTE REALITY” where BINARY LOGIC RULES.,
FRAGMENTATION into FIGURE and GROUND as TWO comes from OUR WESTERN CULTURE brand of language. We opted for a language architecture based on the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR where we use NAMING to psychologically break out a PART of the whole and then use GRAMMAR to imply that the NAMING-instantiated thing-in-itself IS THE LOCAL AUTHOR OF ITS OWN ACTIONS AND DEVELOPMENTS. You can see how this simplifies OUR ARTICULATING of sense-experience reality which is of inclusion in the transforming relational continuum aka the WAVE-FIELD aka the Tao, … because this type of language allows us to CHOP OUT LOCAL PIECES OF THE TRANSFORMING RELATIONAL CONTINUUM and use GRAMMAR to set them up as if they were the LOCAL AUTHORS of their own actions and developments. This IN TURN IMPLIES that that these NAMING-based FRAGMENTS are situated in an ABSOLUTE EMPTY SPACE OF INFINITE EXTENT. The MENTAL PICTURING of a FIGURE-and-GROUND-as-TWO BINARY LOGIC based SUBSTITUTE REALITY is what we are employing as our OPERATIVE REALITY.
But the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR REPRESENTATION gives us a SUBSTITUTE REALITY featuring LOCAL things-in-themselves that move about and interact within a notional ABSOLUTE EMPTY SPACE of INFINITE EXTENT. While this is ABSTRACTION, because it is COMMONLY EMPLOYED (if not ‘believed in’) it serves as a means of communications that can put people on the SAME PAGE. We know what one another are talking about when we speak of ‘THE MOON’ regardless of whether ‘the MOON’ means a body of green cheese to some and ‘thar be DRAGONS to others’. What the NAMIES U.S. or RUSSIA mean to one person may be something very different than what these NAMES mean to others, but their use within a conversation facilitates sharing, however imperfect.
* * *
If we go back to what I would call the ‘beginning’ of this ‘story’ of FRAGMENTATION induced by language architecture which has impacted what we call WESTERN CULTURE, I find value in Nietzsche’s identification of the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR as “the source” of the FRAGMENTATION problem.
The DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR; e.g. “the TOWN is GROWING” establishes as LOCAL BEACHHEAD within the transforming relational continuum aka REALITY aka the WAVE-FIELD aka the Tao.
I consider this to be the origin of the WESTERN CULTURE LANGUAGE-INFUSED FRAGMENTATION dysfunction.
We WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS, in our attempt to ‘get more explicit’ in our language-based representations of reality have been caught between “a rock and a hard place” in that in order to develop a language architecture that delivers representations that are LOCAL and EXPLICIT, such architectures could not, at the same time, capture representations of the NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT. This is one of those CAN’T SEE THE FOREST FOR THE TREES dilemmas which in our social dynamics, is a CAN’T SEE THE SOCIETY FOR THE INDIVIDUALS issue, and in both cases, the WHOLE is far more complex than THE SUM OF THE PARTS.
QUESTION: HOW CAN THIS BE?
ANSWER: There is a QUANTUM LOGIC relation here akin to where the material parts are CONDENSATIONS OF THE ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELD, a REALITY that requires QUANTUM LOGIC for its representation, the BOTH/AND logic of the INCLUDED medium. So, in reality, FIGURE and GROUND-are-ONE as in QUANTUM LOGIC, not FIGURE-and-GRROUND-are-TWO as in BINARY LOGIC.
MESSAGE: EMPLOYING BINARY LOGIC IN DEVELOPING LANGUAGE BASED REPRESENTATIONS OF SENSE-EXPERIENCE REALITY INVOKES PSYCHOLOGICAL FRAGMENTATION.
That is; FRAGMENTATION is a result of employing BINARY LOGIC in language-based representations of sense-experience reality.
PREFACE: This note briefly reviews the proposition of PSYCHOLOGICAL FRAGMENTATION that is endemic in WESTERN CULTURE, as has been been pointed out by Bohm, Nietzsche and others.
FRAGMENTATION is well-described by the aphorism; “THE PATH TO HELL IS PAVED WITH GOOD INTENTIONS”
The well-intentioned leaders of WESTERN CULTURE DEMOCRACIES “have their ladder up the wrong wall” through belief in a SUBSTITUTE REALITY where the abstraction of LOCAL AUTHORING of actions and developments is SUBSTITUTED for REALITY. LOCAL AUTHORING is the source of FRAGMENTATION that is the source of SCHIZOPHRENIA in the WESTERN CULTURE social collective.
We (WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS) are heading into a STORM of PSYCHOLOGICAL FRAGMENTATION that is manifesting as SOCIAL FRAGMENTATION which derives from our WESTERN CULTURE LANGUAGE and GRAMMAR ARCHITECTURE. What we see as CONTINUING PROGRESS and ADVANCEMENT of our SOCIETY is misleading APPEARANCE since these advances, which favour “US HUMANS” are “AT THE EXPENSE” of “other participants” in our complex interdependent world dynamic.
As HUMANS, we are continuing to cultivate SUBOPTIMIZATION which improves conditions for HUMANS out of the context of ‘the rest of ‘creation’. If we truly are INDEPENDENT BEINGS as our WESTERN CULTURE language and grammar presents us to ourselves, then SUBOPTIMIZATION to improve our HUMAN situation regardless of the ‘rest’ “makes sense”. BUT IF REALITY is something very different; i.e. IF ALL FORMS INCLUDING HUMAN FORMS ARE INCLUDED IN THE ONE DEVELOPMENT aka the WAVE-FIELD aka the TAO, as is the finding of Modern Physics, indigenous aboriginal cultures, Taoism/Buddhism and Advaita Vedanta, then we are INTERDEPENDENT and attempts at SUBOPTIMIZATION of HUMANS, FALSELY SEEN as an INDEPENDENT RACE, is DESTRUCTIVE to the health of the interdependent ALL-INCLUDING UNUUM.
This WESTERN CULTURE (language and grammar based) belief in HUMAN INDEPENDENCE (thanks to the influence of BINARY LOGIC) has been leading to SUBOPTIMIZATION that improves living conditions for the deemed-independent HUMAN species, at the expense of deterioration of conditions for NON-HUMAN participants.
MODERN PHYSICS is suggesting that OUR WESTERN CULTURE penchant for SUBOPTIMIZING conditions for HUMANS-AS-IF-HUMANS-WERE-AN-INDEPENDENT-‘SPECIES’ is the source of conflict and damage to our actual INTER-DEPENDENT SENSE-EXPERIENCE REALITY.
This understanding of the WHOLENESS of reality as in the WAVE-FIELD and the TAO as reaffirmed by MODERN PHYSICS is the understanding of reality embraced by indigenous aboriginal cultures who ‘warned’ us WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS of our ERROR in assuming the INDEPENDENCE of the abstractions we create with the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR which impresses our PSYCHE with a BINARY LOGIC based notion of SEPARATION of HUMAN INHABITANT from the HABITAT.
This BINARY LOGIC based ABSTRACT FRAGMENTATION has induced warnings from indigenous aboriginals who share inclusion in this ONE COMMON LIVING SPACE aka the WAVE-FIELD aka the Tao;
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”
YES, our WESTERN CULTURE sense of “OUR” HUMAN AUTHORED ACCOMPLISHMENTS SUPPORTS EGO-INFLATION, along with the sense that WE DID IT, as if WE have the powers of LOCAL AUTHORING of actions and developments (the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR). OUR corresponding systems of REWARDS and RECOGNITION serve to perpetuate belief in the FALSE notion of DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR based AUTHORING of actions and developments, have secured a LOCK-IN by HIGH SWITCHING COSTS to this ERRONEOUS belief in LOCAL AUTHORING and the EGO inflation that comes with it.
Our modern cities with their SKY-SCRAPERS are truly impressive but the GROWTH of a CITY is just an intellectual SNAPSHOT of a LOCAL DEVELOPMENT when our sense-experience reality is telling us that there is NO SUCH THING AS A LOCAL DEVELOPMENT in the transforming relational continuum we share inclusion in; i.e. the “WEB OF LIFE THAT MAN IS AN INCLUDED STRAND IN”. The WHOLENESS and the IMPLICIT ORDER that Bohm speaks of reaffirms the indigenous aboriginal understanding of sense-experience reality, and puts us AT ODDS with the NAMING and GRAMMAR based SUBSTITUTE REALITY we WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS have CREATED.
We have popularized the use of BINARY LOGIC to split apart FIGURE from GROUND into TWO, inventing GRAMMAR so as to re-mobilize the now INDEPENDENT FIGURE within a notional ABSOLUTE EMPTY EUCLIDEAN SPACE OF INFINITE EXTENT.
GOODBYE “QUANTUM LOGIC” wherein FIGURE-and-GROUND-are only ONE, … HELLO WESTERN CULTURE BINARY LOGIC wherein FIGURE-and-GROUND-are-TWO.
What now hold this ABSTRACT and FRAGMENTATION inducing SUBSTITUTE REALITY ‘IN PLACE” is “EGO”, the popular WESTERN CULTURE belief in LOCAL AUTHORING. This EGO that swells the head and associates with MALE ASSERTIVE ACTION AND DEVELOPMENT is displacing INSPIRATION that FILLS the HEART in associated with the aesthetics of TRANSFORMATION. The single-minded intellectual focus on DEVELOPMENT is unable to accommodate, at the same time, the sense-experience informed INTUITION of inclusion in TRANSFORMATION, yet the former (DEVELOPMENT) is only an abstract ratio-based, effable SUBSTITUTE REALITY while the latter is ineffable sense-experience reality of inclusion in the transforming relational continuum. While DEVELOPMENTS can be conceived of in a LOCAL, EXPLICIT PIECEMEAL (FRAGMENTED) fashion that is amenable to language-based articulation, TRANSFORMATION, while it is the REAL REALITY affirmed by our sense experience, is NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT (relational) and thus INEFFABLE so that we can only use INFERENCE and INTUITION to treat of it by way of intellectual discourse.
The EXPEDIENT that we WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS have chosen has been to employ FRAGMENTATION as the basis for language capture, … NOT OF REALITY, … BUT of a SUBSTITUTE REALITY based on FRAGMENTS, GROWTH, MOTION and PRODUCTION that is shareable with BINARY LOGIC based constructions.
So, as stated, this note briefly reviews the proposition of PSYCHOLOGICAL FRAGMENTATION that is endemic in WESTERN CULTURE since FRAGMENTATION plays THE FOUNDATIONAL ROLE in WESTERN CULTURE LANGUAGE ARCHITECTURE as has been been pointed out by Bohm, Nietzsche and others.
And YES, this FRAGMENTATION that is given a foundational role in WESTERN CULTURE CAE language architecture is a CRAZY-MAKER that BLINDS US to the TRANSFORMING LANDSCAPE by having us concentrate our focus on the LOCAL and EXPLICIT as in the abstractions of LOCAL GROWTH, DEVELOPMENT and PRODUCTION, all ABSTRACTIONS that merely APPEAR REAL in our DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR based SUBSTITUTE REALITY.

My interest in this topic or how we perceive reality is not casual or philosophical as much as it is emotional, so while my engaging with you is philosophical, and I do believe that philosophical understanding can possibly transform the emotional, I believe that is a work in progress’. The huge focus of my time on these topics is driven by emotions. Yet because of my emotional drive, I do not want to give my philosophical and spiritual aspects short shrift because I do believe that everything must be ‘in balance’ for true understanding to be awakened.
That being said, I feel as if my researches are stimulated by the same sense as Bohm’s and Nietzsche’s appear to be, by the sense that we WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS are undergoing psychological FRAGMENTATION coming from our WESTERN CULTURE belief system which is BINARY LOGIC based.
The concept of getting in touch with and informed by CHOICELESS AWARENESS makes sense to me, in a particular way, which is that we all share inclusion in the transforming relational continuum aka the WAVE-FIELD aka the Tao.
I see this as affirmed by Modern physics, as I believe, Bohm and Peat and Nietzsche also did, in the following sense;
-1- BINARY LOGIC IS ABSTRACTION THAT IS A CRAZY MAKER. FIGURE and GROUND are NOT TWO, FIGURE and GROUND ARE ONE.
-2- QUANTUM LOGIC ‘makes sense’ as where we understand FIGURE-and-GROUND as ONE as in the case of matter being a condensation of the electromagnetic field
-3- WESTERN JUSTICE and WESTERN MEDICINE are crazy-makers because they are based on the UNREAL ABSTRACTION of BINARY LOGIC, the EITHER/OR logic of the EXCLUDED medium, and the associated BINARY LOGIC notions of EITHER GOOD OR BAD as describe LOCAL and EXPLICIT EVENTS. EG. THE TOWN IS GROWING LARGER AND MORE POPULOUS AND PRODUCTIVE.
-4- EASTERN JUSTICE and EASTERN MEDICINE are based on QUANTUM LOGIC or the BOTH/AND logic of INCLUDED medium, and of BOTH GOOD and BAD as in the NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT. EG. “IN THE TRANSFORMING LANDSCAPE THERE IS TOWNING”. The relation between TOWNING and LANDSCAPE is QUANTUM LOGIC, the BOTH/AND logic of the INCLUDED medium where the TOWNING is an APPEARANCE based aspect within the TRANSFORMING LANDSCAPE. THAT IT: the whole story is THE TRANSFORMING LANDSCAPE and the TOWNING is a FEATURE WITHIN THE TRANSFORMING and is not anything separate and does not have any ‘powers of authorship’ as WESTERN CULTURE language and grammar habitually portrays it.
