The SLIPPERY FISH is QUANTUM LOGIC: BOTH/AND logic of the INCLUDED medium.
We WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS employ a language that is BINARY LOGIC based, the logic of INTELLECTUAL ABSTRACT REPRESENTATION which in innately lacking in representational capability relative to QUANTUM LOGIC, the logic of relational sense-experience reality. BINARY LOGIC is FIGURE-and-GROUND-as-TWO logic that lets us construct language-based representations such as “the TOWN is GROWING” which gives the FIGURE the freedom to act and develop independent of the GROUND it shares inclusion in. QUANTUM LOGIC on the other hand, is FIGURE-and-GROUND-as-ONE logic which supports relational representations where the FIGURE’s action and development IS IN CONJUGATE RELATION with that of the GROUND, as in “there is TOWNING in the TRANSFORMING LANDSCAPE”. In the latter logic, everything is in a mutually related flux as denotes the TRANSFORMING RELATIONAL CONTINUUM aka the WAVE-FIELD aka the Tao.
When BINARY LOGIC is used in REALITY REPRESENTATIONS, there is FRAGMENTATION. When QUANTUM LOGIC is used in REALITY REPRESENTATIONS, everything is interdependently related and there is NO FRAGMENTATION. In our WESTERN CULTURE LANGUAGE habit, BINARY LOGIC constructions prevail, thus REPRESENTATIONS are FRAGMENTATION based.
BINARY LOGIC based LANGUAGE leads to FRAGMENTED REPRESENTATIONS of REALITY, belief in which leads in turn to PSYCHOLOGICAL DISORDER.
AS we WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS continue to use BINARY LOGIC based LANGUAGE, we cultivate PSYCHOLOGICAL DISORDER on the scale of the full social collective.
We speak of AGRICULTURAL and INDUSTRIAL GROWTH and PRODUCTION that fails to capture the conjugate LOSS of WILDERNESS and natural diversity. This FAILURE to acknowledge the REAL REALITY of an overall TRANSFORMATION, a FAILURE that comes by comprehending ONLY the GROWTH of monocultural development and NOT the LOSS of natural diversity, comes from a BLINDNESS to the REAL REALITY which is overall TRANSFORMATION, a blindness that manifests in the one-sided focus on GROWTH and PRODUCTION within a PIE-IN-THE-SKY SUBSTITUTE REALITY.
BINARY LOGIC leads us to a SUBSTITUTE REALITY wherein the ratio-based concepts of GROWTH and PRODUCTION ‘makes sense’.
QUANTUM LOGIC leads us to a relational REALITY wherein the pursuit of dynamic balance aka RESONANCE ‘makes sense’.
It seems clear that BINARY LOGIC is the source of FRAGMENTATION and the dysfunctional orientation to GROWTH and PRODUCTION.

This (following) understanding of the EAST – WEST split in CONCEIVING OF REALITY gives an understanding of the SOURCE of enormous social dysfunction in our WESTERN CULTURE social dynamic. We, any of us, can understand this, and yes, it is like a slippery fish that is difficult to keep a sustained firm grasp of, and the reason for that is that our WESTERN CULTURE CAE (common average European) LANGUAGE ARCHITECTURE DOES NOT SUPPORT IT, so we can think of our language like a NET with a MESH that is TOO LARGE to CONTAIN this slippery fish.
The SLIPPERY FISH is QUANTUM LOGIC; BOTH/AND logic of the INCLUDED medium.
Please DO NOT think that what I am now sharing is straight-forward because, as we know, we are at this moment using that CAE language with the too-large holes in its capture netting. If we take this language to be straight forward, what we will be absorbing will be ONLY THAT which is captured by hour habitual-intellectual MESH, and that MESH is BINARY LOGIC, the EITHER/OR LOGIC of the EXCLUDED MEDIUM.
IF I SAY ‘THE TOWN IS GROWING’, there is ESSENTIAL DROP OUT here because the TOWN is feature that is inseparably included within the TRANSFORMING LANDSCAPE and IS NOT A SEPARATE FRAGMENT of reality with its own powers of GROWTH and PRODUCTION as we make it out to be with NAMING and GRAMMAR.
Nietzsche’s point about the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR relates directly to the DROP OUT problem. Nietzsche used the example “Lightning flashes” to point out that LIGHTNING IS THE FLASHING so that our common everyday European Language is CREATING FRAGMENTATION by using phrasing that incorporates this DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR, WE END UP THINKING IN TERMS that there is something LOCAL, some LOCAL thing-in-itself with its own powers of AUTHORING actions and development..
FRAGMENTATION is created by imputing LOCAL AUTHORING while THERE IS NO SUCH THING in our sense-experience reality is of inclusion in the transforming relational continuum. What we do when we use LANGUAGE to INJECT LOCAL AUTHORING is that we FRAGMENT reality with the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR. Instead of saying, as one would in a flow-based or relational language; ‘there is TOWNING in the TRANSFORMING LANDSCAPE’, we say ‘The TOWN is GROWING larger and more PRODUCTIVE’. This “IS” DOUBLE ERROR based FRAGMENTING of REALITY of the same type as Nietzsche’s example; LIGHTNING FLASHES;
(Nota Bene: Where I am ‘going with this’ is to explain how we WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS use language to synthetically inject the notion of local AUTHORING which is the source of FRAGMENTATION of REALITY)
“Our judgement has us conclude that every change must have an author”;–but this conclusion is already mythology: it separates that which effects from the effecting. If I say “lightning flashes,” I have posited the flash once as an activity and a second time as a subject, and thus added to the event a being that is not one with the event but is rather fixed, “is” and does not “become.”–To regard an event as an “effecting,” and this as being, that is the double error, or interpretation, of which we are guilty.” – Nietzsche, ‘Will to Power’, 531
This is how we get from our sense-experience of our inclusion in relational TRANSFORMATION wherein there is TOWNING in the TRANSFORMING RELATIONAL CONTINUUM.
Thanks to this DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR, we inject the abstract concept of LOCAL AUTHORING which is the source of FRAGMENTATION in our language based conceptualization/representation of REALITY. When I say ‘WE’, I am referring to us WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS with our CAE LANGUAGE ARCHITECTURE, and this distinction is important because those indigenous aboriginal culture folks, along with Taoists/Buddhists and Advaita Vedanta adherents, DO NOT FALL INTO THIS DOUBLE ERROR OF NAMING AND GRAMMAR FRAGMENTING TRAP.
This brings to the fore the need, in LANGUAGE ARCHITECTURE, for QUANTUM LOGIC. QUANTUM LOGIC avoids this DOUBLE ERROR based FRAGMENTING.
Consider the development of, as we way; “a HURRICANE in the ATMOSPHERE”.
BINARY LOGIC has us FRAGMENT phenomena so that, as in this case, we cast the HURRICANE in language, as a SEPARATE THING that MOVES THROUGH the ATMOSPHERE (this latter being understood as a different separate thing). This is how BINARY LOGIC gives rise to FRAGMENTATION.
QUANTUM LOGIC preserves the WHOLENESS (ONE-NESS) of the ATMOSPHERE and HURRICANE, so that we CANNOT speak in terms of the GROWTH and MOVEMENT of the HURRICANE as if FIGURE (HURRICANE) and GROUND (ATMOSPHERE) were TWO SEPARATE THINGS (as in BINARY LOGIC) since QUANTUM LOGIC acknowledges that FIGURE (HURRICANE) and GROUND (ATMOSPHERE) are ONE so that what is going on here overall is TRANSFORMATION of the ONE ‘FIELD’.
In this QUANTUM LOGIC case where FIGURE and GROUND are ONE, we understand the HURRICANE as a CONDENSATION of the FIELD’. Now we only have ONE REAL THING, the FIELD within which is a CONDENSATION within that ONE thing. The CONDENSATION shows up as a FIGURE within the GROUND. This relation is the QUANTUM LOGIC relation wherein FIGURE-and-GROUND-are-ONE; for example, TOWNING in the TRANSFORMING LANDSCAPE is a sense-experience affirmed manifesting of FIGURE-and-GROUND-as-ONE, … as distinguished from the intellectual BINARY LOGIC abstraction of the TOWN in the COUNTRY where FIGURE-and-GROUND-are ‘understood’ as TWO separate and independent ONTOLOGIES (THINGS-IN-THEMELVES)
I have just used a lot of words to convey something which seems so simple, so what is going on here, why all the fuss over something so trivial as the fact that we can choose to represent reality in two different ways; BINARY LOGIC wherein we cast FIGURE and GROUND as two separate ONTOLOGIES, and QUANTUM LOGIC, therein there is only ONE all-including FLOW, aka the WAVE-FIELD aka the TAO wherein there are relational forms which are NOT INDEPENDENT of the WAVE-FIELD but are ‘condensations of the WAVE-FIELD. SO WE HAVE TWO CHOICES FOR UNDERSTANDING REALITY, SO WHAT’S THE BIG DEAL?
The ‘BIG DEAL’ is that we WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS have chosen the BINARY LOGIC basis for REPRESENTATION of REALITY which separates out relational forms-in-the-flow and FRAGMENTS reality into two separate ONTOLOGIES, that of MATTER and that of SPACE so that we construct REPRESENTATIONS of REALITY in a WESTERN CULTURE CAE STANDARD APPROACH using BINARY LOGIC and the separation of FIGURE and GROUND. FURTHERMORE, this BINARY LOGIC becomes the tool we use to deal with the complexities of NATURE WHICH ARE BEYOND THE CAPTURE REACH of BINARY LOGIC. Binary LOGIC is thus like the netting that is too simple and gross to catch the kind of fish that we need to understand sense-experience reality; i.e. the QUANTUM LOGIC fish wherein FIGURE-and-GROUND-are ONLY ONE; e.g. where HURRICANE and ATMOSPHERE are ONLY ONE.
THIS BINARY LOGIC WE (WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS) have stock ourselves with by giving it the foundational role in language-based REPRESENTATION, is limiting our representations to FIGURE-and-GROUND-are-TWO based representations, and DEPRIVING US OF ACCESS TO FIGURE-AND-GROUND-as-ONE based understanding (QUANTUM LOGIC based understanding) wherein, for example, HURRICANE and ATMOSPHERE are ONE.
AS SOON AS WE EMPLOY FIGURE-and-GROUND-as-TWO BINARY LOGIC BASED LANGUAGE ARCHITECTURE THAT FRAGMENTS REALITY, we lose essential understanding that is bound up in the relations among things (the TRANSFORMING LANDSCAPE) which cannot be extracted from the LOCAL FRAGMENTS such as ‘the TOWN THAT IS GROWING LARGER and more PRODUCTIVE’. If we take the EASTERN LANGUAGE OPTION and go with the relational representation, we use language that represents reality in terms of a RELATIONALLY TRANSFORMING LANDSCAPE (continuum) which is UNFRAGMENTED which means we can never ‘see the whole thing’ since it is continually unfolding as is the nature of RELATIONAL TRANSFORMATION.
NOW, IF don’t like our REALITY served up in a loosey-goosey unbounded transforming relational continuum form, and WE INSTEAD PREFER REPRESENTATIONS that are LOCAL and EXPLICIT as embodies BINARY LOGIC, we have LANGUAGE ARCHITECTURES that can serve up this FRAGMENTATION based REPRESENTATION for us; i.e. the LANGUAGE ARCHITECTURE based on the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR wherein we use NAMING to establish ONTOLOGICAL LOCAL EXISTENCE and conflate this with GRAMMAR to impute to the NAMING-instantiated LOCAL things-in-itself, GRAMMAR-given powers of LOCAL AUTHORING of actions and developments. This is the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR based ploy that lets us set up a BINARY LOGIC based reality composed of NOTIONAL ‘LOCAL THINGS-IN-THEMSELVES’ with notional GRAMMAR-given ‘POWERS OF AUTHORING ACTIONS AND DEVELOPMENTS’ .
IN SHORT, INDIGENOUS ABORIGINAL or EASTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS employ a LANGUAGE ARCHITECTURE for REALITY REPRESENTATION based on QUANTUM LOGIC wherein FIGURE-and-GROUND-are-ONE, while we WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS employ a LANGUAGE ARCHITECTURE for REALITY REPRESENTATION based on BINARY LOGIC where FIGURE-and-GROUND-are-TWO.
The WESTERN CULTURE BINARY LOGIC OPTION WE USE LEADS TO FRAGMENTATION and thus to a whole range of FRAGMENTATION based psychological and social dysfunctions which are NOT ENCOUNTERED by users of QUANTUM LOGIC. This FRAGMENTATION based psycho-pathology built into our DUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR based (LOCAL AUTHORING IMLIED) LANGUAGE ARCHITECTURE is exposed in both Bohm’s and Nietzsche’s philosophical investigations and we are thus given WARNINGS that inform us so that we can avoid falling victim to the FRAGMENTATION exposure. SO WHY DO WE CARRY ON AS IF WE HAD NEVER HEARD THE MESSAGE?
This is the exact question that Heraclitus openly asked back in 500 B.C. and this WESTERN CULTURE PROBLEM of FRAGMENTATION has not only persisted but is evidently GETTING WORSE in our current culture.
NIETZSCHE’s ANSWER to why FRAGMENTATION is persisting and intensifying is that FRAGMENTATION is SUPPORTED by EGO and in WESTERN CULTURE, EGO, the ABSTRACT BELIEF in LOCAL AUTHORING, is ENCOURAGED and REWARDED and it all starts from the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR.
The WESTERN CULTURE ECONOMY REWARDS on the basis of LOCAL AUTHORING which is in itself A RECIPE FOR FRAGMENTATION. WESTERN NATIONALISM first of all FRAGMENTS the transforming relational continuum into notional INDEPENDENT NATIONS notionally WITH THEIR OWN POWERS OF AUTHORING actions and developments. This is NOT REALITY, this is the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR which is ABSTRACTION that where it is used to shape behaviour is DELUSION.
Modern physics has reaffirmed that the LOGIC of natural-experience REALITY is QUANTUM LOGIC wherein FIGURE-and-GROUND-are-ONE.
Newtonian physics and our LONG ESTABLISHED WESTERN CULTURE social convention is to conceive of REALITY in terms of BINARY LOGIC, the EITHER/OR logic of the EXCLUDED medium, which generates FRAGMENTATION; i.e. BINARY LOGIC supports the FRAGMENTING of reality into notional SEPARATE BEINGS, SEPARATE NATIONS, SEPARATE RACES, SEPARATE COLOURED PEOPLE etc. By assigning different NAMES to each FRAGMENTED CATEGORY and then using the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR to impute LOCAL AUTHORING ACTION to each of differing CATEGORIES of BLACK, WHILE, YELLOW RACES, GENDERS, NATIONS ETC. sets up the psychological conditioning from which FRAGMENTATION proceeds.
This is the CRAZY condition of FRAGMENTATION we WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS are currently trapping ourselves in with our LANGUAGE-based FRAGMENTING REPRESENTATIONS.
When we WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTS do some star gazing, what we ‘see’ (what we interpret that we are seeing) is
a PICTURE of an EMPTY SPACE locally populated by STARS and PLANETS where FIGURE and GROUND are TWO. BINARY LOGIC follows, or perhaps BINARY LOGIC preceded and was abstraction we imposed on what we were looking out at..
Meanwhile the EASTERN CULTURE ADHERENT sees the stars as droplets of condensation in the overall FLOW such that FIGURE-and-GROUND-are ONE as in QUANTUM logic, giving the sense of MITAKUYE OYASIN, that everything is related since everything is included in the ONE GREAT HARMONY.
But as Wittgenstein points out, every time we open our mouths to speak we are supporting FRAGMENTATION because we have built BINARY LOGIC into our language architecture in the PICTURE of MATTER in SPACE or FIGURE-and-GROUND-as-TWO.
A picture held us captive. And we could not get outside it, for it lay in our language and language seemed to repeat it to us inexorably. –-Wittgenstein
WHAT ARE THE WESTERN CULTURE LANGUAGE LOCK-INS TO BINARY LOGIC and how do they map to EASTERN CULTURE QUANTUM LOGIC?
-1- FIGURE and GROUND maps to GATHERING and SCATTERING
-2- GOOD and EVIL RESONANCE and DISSONANCE
-3- MALE and FEMALE ASSERTING and ACCOMMODATING
-4- GUILTY and INNOCENT TRANSMITTING and RECEIVING
-5- OUTSIDE and INSIDE FIELD and CONDENSATE
-6- GROWTH and SHRINKAGE EXPANDING and CONTRACTING
The former are LOCAL and EXPLICIT as in pointing to a FIGURE in a FIGURE and GROUND as TWO topology as invokes BINARY LOGIC.
The latter are NONLOCAL and IMPLICIT as in FIGURE and GROUND as ONE topology as in QUANTUM LOGIC.
In our WESTERN CULTURE, we have given foundational roles to BINARY LOGIC based concepts (i.e. FRAGMENTING CONCEPTS) into our JUSTICE and ECONOMIC systems which are dominant shapers of our SOCIAL DYNAMIC. FRAGMENTATION into MALE and FEMALE and RICH and POOR and GOOD and EVIL is the result.
SUCH FRAGMENTATION does NOT occur in the indigenous aboriginal culture since the logic employed is QUANTUM LOGIC, the BOTH/AND logic of the INCLUDED medium wherein FIGURE-and-GROUND-are-ONE.
WE WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTs are “LOCKED IN TO BINARY LOGIC BASED REALITY REPRESENTATION BY HIGH SWITCHING COSTS”. We have not only imposed BINARY LOGIC based LABELS on relational forms to split them into MALE and FEMALE (rather than understanding them in QUANTUM LOGIC terms of FIGURE-and-GROUND-as-ONE), we have applied BINARY LOGIC in dynamics reducing the implicit relational forms of resonance and dissonance to the explicit AUTHOR based forms of PERPETRATOR and VICTIM and constructed CRIMINAL JUSTICE and ALLOPATHIC MEDICAL SYSTEMS on this ABSTRACT BINARY LOGIC basis which pursues the PROLIFERATION OF THE AUTHORS OF GOOD and the ELIMINATION of the AUTHORS of BAD. This is a FRAGMENTATION based CRAZY-MAKING approach.
As the saying goes, the BIG LIES we tell ourselves, few have the temerity to call out, and even if they do, they are not likely to be ‘heard’ and if heard, are likely to be ‘eliminated’.
Chief Seattle (Sealth) called us WESTERN CULTURE ADHERENTs out for being the CRAZY FRAGMENTERS that we are but he was just passed off as an ignorant Indian. Our RATIONAL intelligence based skills have allowed to become cock of the walk in our FRAGMENTATION oriented social dynamic but this FRAGMENTATION OBSESSION has led us down the path of SUBOPTIMIZATION. As the systems sciences have discerned and reported on in papers such as ‘the NAME of the DEVIL is SUBOPTIMIZATION, SUBOPTIMIZATION is a FRAGMENTATION cultivating CRAZINESS because we live in a QUANTUM LOGIC REALITY wherein everything is related and our PRETENDING that the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR actually does create LOCAL AUTHORING, is language-induced PSYCHOLOGICAL ABERRANCE that is putting us on a BUSTRIP TO HELL.
There’s nothing keeping us on this BUSTRIP TO HELL besides our OWN EGO based on belief in LOCAL AUTHORING which is coming from the DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR, but boy are those WESTERN CULTURE AUTHORS of GOOD WORKS who are enjoying their own privileged FRAGMENTION, likely to vigorously resist any suggestion that LOCAL AUTHORING is A MYTH. At the same time, there are many found guilty of CRIMINAL ACT AUTHORING who have been long awaiting society’s recovery from the BLINDNESS that supports perpetuation of our DOUBLE ERROR of NAMING and GRAMMAR based BINARY LOGICAL JUSTICE SYSTEM.
The current impasse in the U.S. polarization of REPUBLICANS and DEMOCRATS flags the reality that the concept of LOCAL AUTHORING is a BOGUS CONCEPT. It in on the basis of arguments over whether local authoring is rooted in the individual (REPUBLICAN VIEW) or whether it is rooted in the social collective (DEMOCRATIC VIEW) that the polarization derives and intensifies. In reality, there is no such thing as LOCAL AUTHORING, there is only relational transformation in which we all share inclusion. The REPUBLICAN-DEMOCRAT polarization is another example of FRAGMENTATION born from BELIEF in LOCAL AUTHORING (the BINARY LOGIC BASED DOUBLE ERROR OF NAMING and GRAMMAR).
