“What would Charlie do?” – el Loco Gringo

 

Introducing the metaphorical Charlie Chimp. He is on the cusp of becoming human, living in a world full of new and dangerous things. Having recently abandoned his arboreal existence, he now wanders the savannas of Africa with his mate Polly Protohuman. The behavior patterns he learned in the jungle no longer are effective on the open savanna. “A-hah! He says, I’ll evolve an ANN that can control algorithms. That way I’ll be able to deal with these new threats in a timely manner”.

It is necessary to consider the anthropological origins of our behavior to understand why we behave as we do. After all, it is one thing to chuck rocks across a stream at a rival clan, it is quite another to chuck ICBMs across an ocean at a rival clan. Just as Charlie no longer lives in the jungle, we no longer live in the paleolithic. But we act as if we do. Heres a link to download naked ape. Still a good book.

So what happened? Our intrepid band of chimps has been time warped into the present, bringing their survival skills with them. It is no longer the paleolithic but it’s the same society. The alpha male has morphed into an ideology. The band has morphed into a hyper-tribe and the cohesion of the band has been lost. He no longer has a band to be loyal to. As he has evolved to live in a band of less than 150, the hyper-tribe is an abstraction. The lion has morphed into corporations to prey on him. He has evolved to be a slave. One thing that has not changed though, the hyper males that have taken over this system still get most of the poon-tang and bananas. As long as the hyper-males can keep the chimps fighting among themselves, this will continue.

From the beginning of life to the paleolithic, there was only one way for an organism to experience the universe. That was in the frequency domain. In the frequency domain there is no color, there is no time, there is no sound. There is only vibrations and there is only now. These vibrations are rotational in nature with a beat of 8 and are negentropic. Howsoever, the hominid line developed/evolved/had created (whatever) a separate mind, (left hemisphere) separated from but interconnected and synergistic with the original mind. HUMANS HAVE TWO COGNITIVE MINDS. One operating in the frequency domain (right), the second using a reduced set of the frequency domain which we call the time domain (left). This reduced set gave humans an evolutionary edge over animals, But we have lost the ability to experience the world in the frequency domain, making it difficult to understand. Thus we are left with a quantification of an interpretation of a perception. No wonder, we’re measuring shadows with a rubber ruler. In other words, it ain’t real.

The concept of “two cognitative minds” seems to turn some people off, so I’ll try another analogy. How ’bout a dual core computer. One chip is programmed with a boolean network, the other with a binary network. Each performs different logical operations on the same input. The perception is interpreted with two logic trees and compared. This comparison yields an answer. Thus what appeared to be a convoluted logic tree turns out to be two chips, using two logic patterns performing very simple calculations, (to the individual chip) to yield a synergistic answer that seems akin to magic from the outside. (Yeah, I know two sentient computer chips sounds suspiciously like two cognitive minds. Can’t be helped. the further one gets from reality, the less reality there is.) The difficulty lies in being able to wrap your head around the dual nature of the mind(s). Once that is accepted, it really is just that simple.

WOW

Posted in Healing with tags , , , , , on June 3, 2010 by ellocogringo

Wish Only Well

“What would mom say?”



 

WOW is living in your highest ideals and believing in yourself. It’s appreciating and respecting the diversity and magnificence of life, realizing that you are a link in the chain of life. The chain will be as weak or as strong as you.

Believe in the power of faith, hope and love. Contribute to life in your own special way and celebrate the renaissance of the human spirit!

Be a messenger of hope! Give WOW a new meaning: Wish Only Well.

When you realize that you are a part of this big beautiful picture of life, this golden chain of life, you awaken your soul’s wisdom. Once we know how vitally important each of us is in the chain of life, we have a duty to be strong not only for ourselves, but for all. Remember that you can’t be helpful to others if you can’t help yourself.

For now, let’s use what we know to help ourselves. Remember, our brain is recording even the things we think or say jokingly or with irony, sarcasm, etc. You may be kidding, but your brain records, like a VCR (video cassette recorder). And like a VCR, it doesn’t care if it’s recording a great film or a commercial, it just does its job.

The human spirit is awakening like never before.

Celebrate! A better world is here because of you!

Monkey see, monkey do? There may well be a “critical mass” required to shift a new behavior from being a fragile personal idiosyncrasy to being a well-established alternative, but creating a new alternative does not automatically displace older alternatives. It just provides more choices. It is possible that the washing alternative established by the monkeys on Koshima Island did create a morphogenetic field that made it easier for monkeys on other islands to “discover” the same technique, but the actual research neither supports nor denies that idea. It remains for other cultural experiments and experiences to illuminate this question.

Holding positive ideas (as important a step as this is) is not sufficient by itself to change the world. We still need direct communication between individuals, we need to translate our ideas into action, and we need to recognize the freedom of choice of those who choose alternatives different from our own.

Become the 100th monkey.

There definitely is something to this. The same phenomenon was observed in the Mogabi zoo, where chimps were observed washing cats prior to stuffing them down the garbage disposal, saving on plumbing bills. (Note picture above) The practice has since spread to all zoos.
