QAnon and Nietzsche
CONSIDER QAnon and REASON: REASON is problematic, as Nietzsche pointed out, and it can put us on a BUS TRIP TO HELL.
QAnon is just ONE EXAMPLE.
As Nietzsche pointed out, REASON is based on RATIO (hence ‘RATIO-nality).
Rationality serves us up a shortcut means of constructing REPRESENTATIONS that we can claim to be REPRESENTATIONS OF REALITY.
MEANWHILE, REALITY IS NON-REPRESENTABLE because EVERYTHING IS IN FLUX as is the Wave-field-reality.
THERE IS NO “BASE-CASE EFFABLE REALITY”, … so we might well ask the question, … WHAT IS IT THAT WE ARE “AGREEING” TO ACCEPT AS BEING “REALITY”?
That clearly depends on WHO the “WE” is that we are talking about.
As Giordano Bruno stated as they hauled him off to burn him at the stake for heresy in 1600, ‘A majority has no monopoly on the truth’ (reality).
Maybe not, but a majority can construct and police SOMETHING that it commits its members to BELIEVING “IS” the TRUTH in order to facilitate coordination within a social collective..
For example the abstract concept of THE INDEPENDENT NATION which comes about with the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR (e.g; “POLAND DID SUCH AND SUCH”, … provides a STORY that can serve as a collectively embraced MYTH that is useful in ORGANIZING the actions of a multiplicity of people that subscribe to A COMMON IDENTITY, no matter how TENUOUS is the notion of the INDEPENDENT EXISTENCE OF A FATHERLAND or MOTHERLAND may be; e.g. watch the film clip; The Changing Borders of Poland’
As Nietzsche pointed out, we WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS employ a DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR to CREATE a NOTIONAL LOCAL ENTITY, notionally with “ITS OWN” powers of “LOCAL SOURCING” of actions and developments. We may call this “CAMELOT”, or whatever, and as it turns out THE MAJORITY DOES HAVE A MONOPOLY ON THE “OPERATIVE TRUTH” and is there ANY OTHER KIND OF TRUTH?
“What, then, is truth? A mobile army of metaphors, metonyms, and anthropomorphisms – in short, a sum of human relations, which have been enhanced, transposed, and embellished poetically and rhetorically, and which after long use seem firm, canonical, and obligatory to a people: truths are illusions about which one has forgotten that this is what they are; metaphors which are worn out and without sensuous power; coins which have lost their pictures and now matter only as metal, no longer as coins.” — Nietzsche, –Über Wahrheit und Lüge im aussermoralischen Sinne, (On Truth and Lies in an extra-moral sense).
If there is NO TRUTH, except by convention, then what does that ‘do’ for ‘reason’ and its foundational support in ‘being’?
“In Reason’ in language! ……..(Note how Nietzsche points to ‘being’ as the underpinning of ‘reason‘; i.e). … “Being is thought into and insinuated into everything as ‘cause’; from the concept ‘ego,’ alone, can the concept ‘Being’ proceed.”……….– oh what a deceptive old witch it (reason) has been! I fear we shall never be rid of God, so long as we still believe in grammar.” – Nietzsche, ‘Twilight of the Idols’
Since we are living in a world wherein EVERYTHING IS IN FLUX, … why should we be surprised by the lack of HARD FOUNDATIONAL SUPPORT FOR BEING or even REASON?
I am not ‘KNOCKING’ the UTILITY of these concepts of REASON, TRUTH, and BEING, …because when a group of people get together an agree on them (which is the only way that such terms can ‘take on persisting meaning’) they become great facilitators of COMMUNICATION.
STILL, we are never free of the exposure to ‘problems’ associated with the fact that different groups can come up with their own GROUP-based BELIEFS which they hold to be REASON, TRUTH and BEING. The indigenous aboriginals are not convinced that ‘the UNITED STATES’ is “REALLY” an INDEPENDENT THING-IN-ITSELF with its own notional LOCAL POWERS of SOURCING actions and developments, although WESTERN CULTURE DOUBLE ERROR constructions based on NAMING and GRAMMAR are commonly ‘FABRICATED’ to imply such, and as Giordano Bruno pointed out, we WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS are in the habit of using a MAJORITY BASED CONSENSUS for establishing “THE TRUTH” such as ‘the UNITED STATES IS AN INDEPENDENT NATION WITH ITS OWN POWERS OF SOURCING ACTIONS AND DEVELOPMENTS”.
This is TOTAL BALONEY but this sort of DOUBLE ERROR construction has proven itself to be a powerful tool for organizing the relational dynamics of a diverse multitude, once they adapt and conform to the abstraction so that each of them become like limbs on the body of one organism.
BACK TO QAnon, …
My aim is not to PASS JUDGEMENT on this practice of using the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR to CONSTRUCT language-based IMAGINARY TOWNS or NATIONS where we use GRAMMAR to IMPUTE LOCAL SOURCING of ACTION, GROWTH and DEVELOPMENT to the NAMING-instantiated IMAGINARY TOWN or NATION.
Sure, such language based abstractions serve as useful tools for coordinating group actions, … HOWEVER, THERE ARE DOWNSIDES, as Nietzsche, among others, has pointed out. For example, if we start BELIEVING in such statements as “THE TOWN IS GROWING”, then we can NO LONGER, at the same time, hold on to the understanding that ‘THE LANDSCAPE IS TRANSFORMING, … and RIGHT THERE, … is where WEST (reality conceptualizing) splits off from EAST (reality conceptualizing).
WE CAN CHECK IT OUT! What the indigenous aboriginal EXPERIENCES WITH HER SENSES, as more colonizers arrive and participate in TRANSFORMING THE LANDSCAPE is just that; i.e. the TRANSFORMING of the LANDSCAPE, … so what’s all this talk about the LOCAL BIRTH and DEVELOPMENT of a TOWN?
GRANTED, language and grammar can CONSTRUCT this sort of SUBSTITUTE CAMELOTIAN REALITY which will HANG TOGETHER AND ‘MAKE SENSE’ among THOSE THAT BUY IN and establish a MAJORITY that can MONOPOLIZE the DEFINING of such SUBSTITUTE REALITY in which TOWNS GROW rather than LANDSCAPES TRANSFORM.
NOTA BENE: Our WESTERN CULTURE use of the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR as in ‘the TOWN is GROWING’, … because it psychologically SPLITS the TOWN out of the TRANSFORMING LANDSCAPE, … IMPLICITLY HAS US INVENTING AN ABSOLUTE EMPTY CONTAINING SPACE IN WHICH “THE TOWN CAN GROW”, because, as a matter of fact, as affirm-able by our sensory experience, THERE IS NO LOCAL THING-IN-ITSELF “TOWN” that “GROWS LARGER AND MORE POPULOUS AND MORE PRODUCTIVE” (notionally inside a Euclidian space-frame), … there is only the TRANSFORMING LANDSCAPE.
Once we start using language in the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR mode, we are moving ourselves into a SUBSTITUTE REALITY where LOCAL GROWTH and LOCAL PRODUCTION is POSSIBLE and even SEEMS REAL, … BUT IT IS NEITHER POSSIBLE NOR REAL, but part of the SUBSTITUTE REALITY we are constructing with the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR, … as Nietzsche has pointed out.
Nietzsche’s ‘pointing out’ HAS NOT ‘TAKEN’ in the WESTERN CULTURE… WHY?
The answer, in one word, is EGO!
EGO builds from the DOUBLE ERROR concept of LOCAL SOURCING, and this can apply to any NAMED FORM such as a PERSON or NATION or CORPORATION.
Of course, once we have made this investment of BELIEF IN EGO, it has a downside in that LOCAL SOURCING is a BINARY LOGIC based concept wherein FIGURE and GROUND are TWO, otherwise the FIGURE-THING could not move or develop as a THING-IN-ITSELF without being INDEPENDENT of the GROUND
NOTE THAT in the EAST, FIGURE and GROUND are ONE as implied in the Tai-Chi or Yin/Yang symbol and this signifies TRANSFORMATION wherein the GROWTH of the CULTIVATED LAND is CONJUGATE with the SHRINKAGE of the WILDERNESS such that what is actually going on is TRANSFORMATION in which case, “THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS GROWTH”.
But WE WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS LIKE EGO because it puffs us up and makes us feel like PROUD BOYS, … and this is not at all like the EAST with the indigenous aboriginal tradition of the POTLATCH based on the understanding of being included in TRANSFORMATION where there is NO LOCAL SOURCING and thus no EGO-based claims of I AM THE SOURCE!
WE WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS ELEVATE REASON to a primary role in REALITY CONSTRUCTION, and REASON is based on RATIO and the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR. First we ‘GIVE BIRTH’ to a TOWN as a LOCAL THING-IN-ITSELF by NAMING, and then we employ GRAMMAR to impute GROWTH to the LOCAL TOWN, … ALL OF THIS WITHOUT MESSING WITH THE LANDSCAPE! HOW DOES ONE DO THAT? -ONE INVENTS AN ABSOLUTE EMPTY AND INFINITE “EUCLIDIAN CONTAINING SPACE’ to insert our abstract thing-in-itself TOWN into so that IT MAY “GROW” as if it were a LOCAL THING-IN-ITSELF, and NOT one of these indigenous aboriginal FIGURE-and-GROUND-are ONE TOWNING developments wherein ‘there is TOWNING-in-the-TRANSFORMING LANDSCAPE’.
WE WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS construct our own SUBSTITUTE REALITY wherein the GROWTH of the TOWN is taken to be real WITHOUT ANY MENTION OF THE SHRINKAGE OF THE WILDERNESS!
HOW DOES THIS HAPPEN?
THIS HAPPENS IN THE ABSTRACTING PSYCHE WITH THE HELP OF THE DOUBLE ERROR. The FIRST ERROR is NAMING to establish a notional LOCAL PRESENCE, and this we follow up with GRAMMAR to enlarge the LOCAL PRESENCE. Since this is all one-sided LOCAL, INSIDE-OUTWARD ASSERTING action that ‘RATIO’s up’ the imputed LOCAL THING-IN-ITSELF presence established by NAMING, the Janus-faced complications of the CONJUGATE SHRINKAGE OF THE WILDERNESS are avoided. Of course, we have just constructed a SUBSTITUTE REALITY wherein LOCAL THINGS-IN-THEMSELVES (thank you very much, NAMING) undergo EXPANSION-IN-THEIR-OWN-RIGHT. This is where RATIO-based thinking comes in, together with the ABSOLUTE EMPTY AND INFINITE CONTAINING SPACE, without which, we would have to take into account the SHRINKAGE OF WILDERNESS that is CONJUGATE to the GROWTH OF THE TOWN.
HIGH FIVES! We WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS hare CLEANED THINGS UP with language and grammar that now lets us CONSTRUCT REALITY (a SUBSTITUTE REALITY) wherein we only have to concern ourselves with the MALE ASSERTIVE RATIO-ING UP of LOCAL THINGS-IN-THEMSELVES; i.e. just those things we NAME and specify, bypassing having to address the unknown complexities of the WILDERNESS, that actually are being impacted in the overall TRANSFORMATION that is really going on, that we don’t want to talk about because we can’t possibly get to the end of describing the TRANSFORMING RELATIONAL CONTINUUM aka the Wave-field. So, sHANK YOU VERY MUCH, our FIGURE-and-GROUND-as-TWO configuring we put into language which liberates FIGURE from GROUND and saves us from having do deal with unending complications of CONJUGATE RELATIONS in the FIGURE-and-GROUND-as-ONE reality.
This WESTERN CULTURE GAMBIT of reducing the complex TRANSFORMING FIGURE-and-GROUND-as-ONE SENSORY-EXPERIENCE REALITY to a simplified RATIONAL-INTELLECTUAL FIGURE and GROUND as TWO SUBSTITUTE REALITY allows us to speak in the one sided MALE-ASSERTIVE terms of LOCAL BEING and LOCAL ACTION AND DEVELOPMENT based GROWTH. Instead of having to account for the CONJUGATE shrinkage of the WILDERNESS, the one-sided RATIO based concept of GROWTH allows us to build our SUBSTITUTE REALITY in a purely MALE ASSERTIVE positivist fashion as if this GROWTH were occurring within an absolute emptiness of infinite extent with no ‘pushback’ complicating what our GRAMMAR is presenting as one-sided MALE-ASSERTIVE RATIO based enlargement aka GROWTH.
CAN WE NOT “SEE” the expansion of CULTIVATED lands from X acres growing in expanse to 2X acres? After all, we are RATIONAL BEINGS and rationality does not mess around with complexities like conjugate shrinkage of WILDERNESS where the two conjugates taken together imply TRANSFORMATION. We prefer the simplicity of the simple RATIO-ing UP as in the extension of the FIGURE as associates with GROWTH, … leaving the GROUND out of it.
This one-sided MALE ASSERTIVE GROWTH BASED SUBSTITUTE REALITY is a simpler reality for us to ‘call home’, at least as far as our language-based story-telling (representation) goes, than the REAL REALITY of our sensory experience of inclusion in TRANSFORMATION (which is ineffable because nonlocal and implicit).
So, THAT’s how “THIS” HAPPENS, as was our earlier inquiry;;
WE WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS construct our own SUBSTITUTE REALITY wherein the GROWTH of the TOWN is taken to be real WITHOUT ANY MENTION OF THE SHRINKAGE OF THE WILDERNESS!
HOW DOES THIS HAPPEN?
It is, of course thanks to the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR plus the imaginary concept of EUCLIDEAN SPACE as a notional CONTAINER for the FIGURES we liberate from GROUND with our FIGURE and GROUND as TWO BINARY LOGIC.
WE WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS just have to remember to remind ourselves, when talking with our indigenous aboriginal friends, that they have not STEPPED INTO THE SUBSTITUTE REALITY and are still in the FIGURE-and-GROUND-as-ONE reality wherein ‘mitakuye oyasin’ (everything is related) applies, so that they think of reality as inclusion in a transforming relational continuum.
BUT NOW BACK TO QAnon and other related DELUSIONS which stem from the basic DELUSION of the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR which imputes LOCAL SOURCING where there is instead NONLOCAL TRANSFORMATION, and thus where there is no TOWN THAT GROWS, but instead a LANDSCAPE THAT TRANSFORMS. In this case, within that TRANSFORMING there is TOWNING and thus no need to WARP OUR PSYCHE with notions of ABSOLUTE SPACE that serves as a non-participating holding tank loaded with notional LOCAL INDEPENDENTLY-EXISTING THINGS-IN-THEMSELVES NOTIONALLY WITH THEIR OWN LOCAL POWERS OF SOURCING ACTIONS AND DEVELOPMENTS (thank you very much double error of NAMING and GRAMMAR).
QAnon is just one of the ABERRATIONS stemming from the NON-REALITY of REASON based constructions. The Conservative – Liberal Polarization is another, and so is the common belief in the INDEPENDENT EXISTENCE of NAMING and GRAMMAR (double error) BASED NATION-STATES, HUMAN “BEINGS”, CORPORATIONS etc.
Nobody said that languages deliver up realities. Languages deliver up abstract representations that trigger recall of visual and sensual experiences. WESTERN CULTURE languages ‘do iit’ differently from EASTERN CULTURE languages as Benjamin Whorf shows.
The REALITY of Modern physics, indigenous aboriginal cultures, Taoism/Buddhism and Advaita Vedanta is a FIGURE-AND-GROUND-AS-ONE REALITY aka the TRANSFORMING RELATIONAL CONTINUUM aka the Wave-field aka ‘the Tao’ …. that doesn’t involve the PSYCHOLOGICAL CONSTRUCTION of FIGURE-and-GROUND-as-TWO PSEUDO-REALITIES which are intrinsically ambiguous and haunted by GHOSTS. For example, when we use the DOUBLE ERROR to construct a SUBSTITUTE REALITY featuring the GROWTH OF THE TOWN, … distancing from our awareness the REAL REALITY of the TRANSFORMING LANDSCAPE, we DROP FROM OUR AWARENESS, the SHRINKAGE OF THE WILDERNESS which is all the while HAUNTING us as we focus on the expansion of our TOWNS and INDUSTRIAL DEVELOPMENTS as if such GROWTH were REALITY.
SUCH GROWTH of the TOWN cannot be REALITY unless the EUCLIDEAN SPACE which we have to invent to allow the TOWN, in our psyche, at least, to GROW IN ITS OWN RIGHT, independent of the LANDSCAPE it is included in, IS ALSO REAL. WITHOUT EUCLIDEAN SPACE BEING REAL, the GROWTH of the TOWN cannot be real, and we would then have to acknowledge the REAL REALITY of the TRANSFORMING LANDSCAPE in which TOWNING was included.
QAnon is bogus and so is REASON so we may consider and compare the QAnon abstractions in relation to WESTERN CULTURE use of REASON in SUBSTITUTE REALITY CONSTRUCTIONS..
“In Reason’ in language! ……..(Note how Nietzsche points to ‘being’ as the underpinning of ‘reason‘; i.e. … “Being is thought into and insinuated into everything as ‘cause’; from the concept ‘ego,’ alone, can the concept ‘Being’ proceed.”……….– oh what a deceptive old witch it (reason) has been! I fear we shall never be rid of God, so long as we still believe in grammar.” – Nietzsche, ‘Twilight of the Idols’
Our sensory experience grounded understanding informs us that the TRANSFORMING LANDSCAPE, although it is INEFFABLE-because-NONLOCAL-and-IMPLICIT, is MORE REAL than the abstraction of the TOWN THAT GROWS,, … GROWTH that is thanks to the abstract notional ABSOLUTE SPACE that the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR. The DOUBLE ERROR recasts FIGURE-and-GROUND-as-ONE topology into FIGURE-and-GROUND-as TWO topology.
OK, mister TOWN, GRAMMAR is giving you permission to expand or ‘ratio-up’ freely in space without any conjugate impediments whatsoever. GRAMMAR CAN DO THIS, thus supporting NAMING which has already imputed LOCAL THING-IN-ITSELF EXISTENCE to you, TOWN. If you get feeling lonesome by such double error granting of independence, you may have to join “THE OTHER CULTURE” in which case you had better keep it quiet because as Schroedinger has pointed out, you will then be either a Mahavit or an Atmavit in that you will be understanding FIGURE-and-GROUND-as-ONE within a WESTERN CULTURE that comes bundled with belief in FIGURE-and-GROUND-as-TWO.
“T.S. Eliot studied Eastern religions in detail at Harvard, learning some Sanskrit and some Pali, and soon concluded that “their subtleties make most of the great European philosophers look like schoolboys.” For a young man disillusioned with his banal surroundings and desperate to break away from his family, there was something wonderfully aloof, impersonal and invulnerable about the Buddhist notion of the spirit, free of all attachments and desires. And by the time he was composing The Wasteland, which ends, of course, with the chant “Shantih shantih shantih,” he was genuinely considering a conversion to Buddhism. But the truth was, he wrote, “my only hope of really penetrating to the heart of that mystery would lie in forgetting how to think and feel as an American or European: which for practical as well as sentimental reasons, I did not wish to do.”
Schrodinger seems to have had the same problem. …” — Ned Beauman, ‘Great Mahavits’ January 4, 2010
QAnon along with the Conservative-Liberal POLAR opposition are artifacts of WESTERN CULTURE REASON-based UNDERSTANDING.
QAnon is more UNHINGED than Conservatism and Liberalism but all three are based on belief in the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR which gives rise to the abstract concept of LOCAL SOURCING as supported in WESTERN CULTURE by EGO.
The conservative and liberal believers in LOCAL SOURCING are both RESPECTED within WESTERN CULTURE by their practice of praising/encouraging CONSTRUCTIVE SOURCING and condemning/discouraging DESTRUCTIVE SOURCING. The difference between the two being that while the Conservative attributes the root of sourcing within the social dynamic to the individual (one bad apple spoils the barrel), the liberal attributes the root of sourcing to the social collective (it takes a whole community to raise a child). The system of REWARDS and PUNISHMENTS based on the notion of LOCAL SOURCING can lead to periods of social relational stability punctuated by periods of polarizing conflict.
In the EAST’s FIGURE-and-GROUND-as-ONE reality, the concepts of relational resonance and dissonance prevail wherein the ethic of moving within the relational dynamic so as to cultivate harmony/resonance and attenuate discord/dissonance is encouraged.
BECAUSE FIGURE-and-GROUND-are-ONE, the physical dynamics of relational resonance and dissonance are all that is possible as there is no such thing as an INDEPENDENT INDIVIDUAL FIGURE THAT IS SEPARATE FROM THE GROUND as in the FIGURE-and-GROUND-as-TWO WESTERN CULTURE reality.
In the WESTERN CULTURE FIGURE-and-GROUND-as-TWO ABSTRACTION, the CONFUSING AMBIGUITIES arise as to WHERE IS THE SOURCING COMING FROM. NOTA BENE!: who said there should be any LOCAL SOURCING? WHO OR WHAT PUT THE GHOSTLY LOCAL SORCERER THING INTO WESTERN CULTURE REPRESENTATION OF REALITY? What was wrong with relational TRANSFORMATION?
OH, THAT’s RIGHT, TRANSFORMATION is INEFFABLE-because-NONLOCAL, so as Wittgenstein points out, we have to use language for relational inference of the ineffable.
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
For QAnon, this language game of chasing down ghosts gets too particular and that which is local and explicit is always wrong so why not loosen things up in our constructions of reality?
The EAST has done this in a FIGURE-and-GROUND-as-ONE approach by using the coherency arising from a multiplicity of different perspectives to profile the HURRICANE in the ATMOSPHERE without resorting to a FIGURE and GROUND as TWO ABSTRACTION.
But the WEST likes its THINGS-IN-THEMSELVES because that is where EGO-PRIDE comes from and we WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS have shown that we do not like to give up that EGO-PRIDE in exchange for what? The trade-off is evidently captured in the phrase; ‘the EGO SWELLS THE HEAD while INSPIRATION FILLS THE HEART’. As strong rational intellect hungers for the head-swelling EGO while intuition is fuelled by inspiration that fills the heart.
QAnon is an attempt to go beyond the shortcomings of conservatism and liberalism, both of which are based on LOCAL SOURCING, …BUT WITHOUT LETTING GO OF THE ABSTRACT CONCEPT OF “LOCAL SOURCING”, which would, if they did let go, have them SWITCHING TEAMS to the EASTERN reality construction where there is no such thing as LOCAL SOURCING but only RELATIONS as in MITAKUYE OYASIN.
QAnon is the NEXT in using LOCAL SOURCING to construct realities which can overcome the shortfalls of the conservative and liberal realities which are always coming up short. By giving LOCAL SOURCING more unbridled power, many things can be explained in as one-sided LOCAL SOURCING fashion as where a DONALD TRUMP can secretly lead us all out of the confusion we seem to be trapped in. Finally, we can gather together and go to a place that makes sense instead of being constantly blocked by a lot of crazy liberals and others who are just negating our great potentials for acting together as one in a massively powerful LOCAL SOURCING mode of operations.
QAnon is a kind of END-GAME for the LOCAL SOURCING ABSTRACTION where there is avoidance of being hung up by one’s own conjugate that always seems to hijack and diminish the fullblown potential of the masses. The conservative plane is always being strait-jacketed and thwarted by the liberals. What is needed is a NEW CONSERVATIVE PROUD BOY organization that can shake off the wet blanket of liberalism and go for the glory together, uninhibited. where EGO can explode into fullblown one-sided blossom. Why keep listening to reasoned logical arguments that serve only to stifle LOCAL ACTION and DEVELOPMENT?

LOCAL SOURCING: WHERE IS IT GOING?
Western culture conservatives have gone with LOCAL SOURCING and tried to make it work using the human individual as the basic energizer. Western culture liberals have gone with LOCAL SOURCING and tried to make it work using the human social collective as the basic energizer. These two modes of representing reality in terms of LOCAL SOURCING end up conflicting with one another. Maybe LOCAL SOURCING needs to be done INVISIBLY so as to avoid being bogged down in conflict? Maybe there are forces at work trying to engineer that, right now, and we just haven’t tuned into them, but if we do tune into them, they will be there and we will be them, and we can finally mobilize LOCAL SOURCING in an unimpeded manner.
Of course, if the WEST can’t solve its problems in trying to develop the LOCAL SOURCING concept, an alternative would be to adopt the understanding of the EAST which is based on the NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT rather than on the LOCAL AND EXPLICIT as in LOCAL SOURCING. The indigenous aboriginals have been waiting on us WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS for a long time, to make such a switch and stop chasing around this PHANTOM LOCAL SOURCING. Sure the culture of the WEST ‘put a man on the moon’ and a lot of other “GREAT ACHIEVEMENTS” in a MALE-ASSERTIVE LOCAL SOURCING SENSE, but that has left TRANSFORMATION flapping around like a loose sheet in a gale. These MALE ASSERTING GREAT ACHIEVEMENTS are only ‘real’ within the SUBSTITUTE REALITY where FIGURE-and-GROUND-are-TWO. In the reality of our sensory experience wherein FIGURE-and-GROUND are ONE, there is only TRANSFORMATION, there is no GROWTH as in the notional GROWTH of CULTIVATED LAND or the GROWTH OF THE TOWN as requires a belief in LOCAL SOURCING.
QAnon smells a rat in the WESTERN CULTURE implementation of the concept of LOCAL SOURCING and wants to take SORCERY to new levels. Meanwhile, the problem lies with the unreality of the concept of LOCAL SOURCING. As Nietzsche pointed out, SOURCING is abstraction coming from the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR. So, while QAnon rightly smells a rat in our popular ways of conceiving of LOCAL SOURCING such that we (QAnon) are now ‘seeing’ good (TRUMP) and bad (HILARY CLINTON) and other pedophile ghosts LOCALLY SOURCING out of the woodwork (the cover panels of our own psyche), in the kerfuffle, we are missing the point that there is no such thing as LOCAL SOURCING there is only NONLOCAL TRANSFORMATION. It is in trying to MAKE SENSE out of LOCAL SOURCING (an abstraction sustained by our own EGO) that we keep screwing up. QAnon is an extreme case of the hopeless project of trying to come up with understanding of reality based on LOCAL SOURCING.
