American Gods

American Gods is a Hugo and Nebula Award-winning novel by Neil Gaiman. The novel is a blend of Americana, fantasy, and various strands of ancient and modern mythology, all centering on a mysterious and taciturn protagonist, Shadow.  AGWiki I haven’t read this yet but here’s the download.  American Gods.  And here’s a blow by blow analysis.  ForgottenGod And here’s the 1st of 12 online readings.  AmericanGods This book is to gothic what “whole lotta love” is to acid rock”
This guy’s got an interesting take on it.  “The mainstream concept of considering religious diversity and its negative effect on mankind as a social enigma, and attempting to find ways of making it work cohesively, has been, and is a total failure. But, the logical approach of attempting to discover the truth behind the phenomenon of multiple gods, and examining alternative explanations for it is ignored. A practical approach is to consider the alternatives and determine the logic of each of the possible reasons for this diversity.” WorldsGods As does the theosophical society.  Theosophy holds that all religions are attempts by the “Spiritual Hierarchy” to help humanity in evolving to greater perfection, and that each religion therefore has a portion of the truth   Theosophy Research ChrystalLinks is an excellent website for exploration in this area.  Have we entered the dawn of the age of aquarius ?  5thDimension This is getting spooky. Shadow appears to be the one I refer to as stranger, and Helga refers to as spectre in atenonol dreams.  This is a triple hit, enough to elevate Schrödinger’s “one mind” from “could be” to “best answer to date” .  Anybody have any thoughts on that?  Weird shit man.  GoogleBooks

“More than a tourist in America, but not a native, Neil Gaiman offers an outside-in and inside-out perspective on the soul and spirituality of the country–our obsessions with money and power, our jumbled religious heritage and its societal outcomes, and the millennial decisions we face about what’s real and what’s not.” –Therese Littleton “Religions are, by definition, metaphors, after all: God is a dream, a hope, a woman, an ironist, a father, a city, a house of many rooms, a watchmaker who left his prize chronometer in the desert, someone who loves you-even, perhaps, against all evidence, a celestial being whose only interest is to make sure your football team, army, business, or marriage thrives, prospers and triumphs over all opposition.  Religions are places to stand and look and act, vantage points from which to view the world.” – American Gods p508

Is this in fact the dawning of the age of aquarius? 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.

The 100th monkey phenomenon is supposed to kick in when 1/3 of the population achieves awareness.  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. From what I have seen so far,  from the end of the ice age, our connectedness has been systematically destroyed leaving us as mindless robots, swarming in this ant warren of a society we live in.   

“It is not in the nature of man–nor of any living entity–to start out by giving up, by spitting in one’s own face and damning existence; that requires a process of corruption whose rapidity differs from man to man. Some give up at the first touch of pressure; some sell out; some run down by imperceptible degrees and lose their fire, never knowing when or how they lost it. Then all of these vanish in the vast swamp of their elders who tell them persistently that maturity consists of abandoning one’s mind; security, of abandoning one’s values; practicality, of losing self-esteem. Yet a few hold on and move on, knowing that that fire is not to be betrayed, learning how to give it shape, purpose and reality. But whatever their future, at the dawn of their lives, men seek a noble vision of man’s nature and of life’s potential. …” – Ayn Rand

“And then the man who bears the pitcher will walk across an arc of heaven. The sign and signet of the Son of man stands forth in the eastern sky. The wise will then lift up their heads and know that the redemption of the earth is near” – Bible “What lies ahead for Humanity? With all the problems we have, it’s hard to believe our future is bright. Inflation and recession, environmental deterioration, diminishing resources, unrest and oppression in developing countries, and apathy, loneliness and lack of direction in developed ones all combine to severely cloud the horizon…It may seem fantastic, but the signs in the heavens point to an extraordinary renewal in the years just ahead. If we recall some recent trends, this prospect doesn’t seem so outlandish. It wasn’t too long ago that we heard about the dawning of the Age of Aquarius, and about the revival of spirit among the new generation. We can still hear the echoes of John Kennedy’s call to action and see the vision of Martin Luther King’s dream. Before he and his dream were shot down in 1968, he said we as a people “would get to the promised land.” The promise seems empty now, yet the planetary cycles support his prophecy. For what we discover when we examine these cycles is compelling evidence that a renaissance and a golden age is right around the corner.”


But with the we inside of me, I can see man in all his glory and depravity.  The gift has a dark side. Hope and foreboding coexist. Kumbaya Or maybe the age of aquarius will be a self fulfilling prophecy.  Or….. maybe I’m full of shit, I am crazy, don’t you know?   The problem, in my minds, is that neither of these views can be elevated to “best answer to date”.  Dunno. Troubling.

 

I left this for the webmaster at forgotten gods.
Hmmm!
You would be doing a disservice to mankind if you were to reveal the name of the forgotten god. It is the quest, not the arriving that is important. I speak to that obliquely here>  Epiphany Express
it is the grail in percival
I call it the key to ANN.
Learning makes it profound, teaching makes it trite.
The Forgotten God, like the vedic scripts, and the bible, and folklore, myths, legends are not to be taken literally. After all, what’s a meta phor?
The forgotten god is unique to each individual and profound, else it is dogma and trite. that is the whole point.
neil cautioned you on this here> Please don’t reveal the identity of the god/folkloric entity that people always forget,
so let’s keep it our little secret.
Hmmm?

The Age of Aquarius

When the moon is in the seventh house And jupiter aligns with mars The peace will guide the planets and love will steer the stars This is the dawning of the age of aquarius Harmony and understanding Sympathy and trust abounding No more falsehoods or derisions Golden living dreams of visions Mystic crystals revelations And the minds true liberation Aquarius

CR Toy

Reading poli’s paper Paper He is exactly right in his description of the problem. He is exactly wrong in his analysis of it. This is disheartening. consider the above toy cash register. It has a double row of keys and a row of leaves that pop up when you push the appropriate key. the red key drops the leaves and the crank opens the drawer. The primary cause/effect is if you push the top left key the left leaf pops up. etc for the rest. Then here comes numbers, and we put these numbers on the keys and the appropriate leaves. now we can say “when we push the .01 key the .01 leaf pops up.” But we forget that we are the ones that put the numbers on the keys, and forget the primary relationship. So we end up with a situation where physicists, for example, perform mathematical operations on the numbers on the keys to try to understand the mechanics of the toy. It’s insane. But neither is reality. The reality, assuming this were a real cash register, is that someone came in and bought something. This someone is extrinsic. the mechanics and the numbers are intrinsic.

There are two seperate but synchronous things happening in the cash register which reflect reality. The only difference between the cash register and the brain is the brain has 100 billion leaves and 100 billion keys. We think that we are in charge of the cash register, we are not (unless we’re thieves) we think we are thinking when we ring up the sale. we are not. we are only reacting to the guy handing us cash.

No matter how we arrange the keys, nor what symbols we put on them. It ain’t real. Reality, and only reality is real.

incomprehensible in their scale,

Thought

What is a thought? There’s a lot of definitions of thought, but they all center on how thoughts act, not what they are. I’m gonna posit that a thought is coherrent chemical activity in the brain, at least as it applies to humans. Hmm! This brings up the question of: “Where does this coherrence come from?”

GOD! shouts the majority. Universe, shouts a significant minority. And there are others, karballah, great mysterious, wave nature etc. What all these have in common is “Something “up there” is causing something “down here” (material world)”

But people think backwards. Something down here is causing something up there. Consider the water molecule. H2O. If you’re speaking of the ocean without the water molecule you got squat. How can you even begin to talk about the ocean without understanding the water molecule. I don’t mean it’s particle nature, that’s knowledge, but it’s wave nature, that’s understanding. Even then, one is a shadow of a shadow and the other a shadow of reality. The shadows are, in and of themselves, real however. Until what’s happening inside the skull gets sorted out there’s no point going any further.

I agree with pythagoras that the universe is harmonic in nature (negentropic)

So, unless you’re ready to tell me what change in which law of the universe would cause geese to fly in the x formation, we’re not ready to talk intrinsic/extrinsic.

Beware the black swan.

Trojan

Fairy

Why are people dumb? The first sentence I wrote in an attempt to explain how the mind works is “When considering what is happening in the mind, it is necessary to consider everything that is happening to the mind which is everything.” ANN Why is this not obvious? Why is this not obvious at every level of cognition? At every scale? On any topic. What is it with this PTIB syndrome mankind seems to be afflicted with?

I had intended to write this post about what is wrong with the way the 3 body problem question is asked. Consider the first hit I got, a paper by Poli on analysis-systhesis. He’s right by times and wrong by times, but that is not the focus of my attention. He is analyzing synthesis. He complains of the inadequacy of analysis then IMMEDIATELY begins taking apart the put together thingie. How bizzarre, it borders on insanity.  What is wrong with cognition?  Half the world can’t analyze, half the world can’t synthesize and half the world can’t do either.

Using his words, the left mind is an analysis machine, the right mind is a synthesis machine both used to make sense of reality, whatever that reality may be at the moment. Reality and only reality is real.

Scientists talk of quantum mechanics and yoga speaks of nirvana. Both think they are talking of reality, they are not! they are talking of analysis and synthesis. Plato had it right, logos and mythos are our way of evaluating the aether. Logos and mythos are intrinsic, the aether is extrinsic. What else needs to be said? What is so friggin complicated? This is baby talk.

As to the three body problem. It can’t be solved by analysis. Well, OK, use synthesis. How? Dunno. I prefer to leave math and physics to people who are interested in such things.

Or………..blame the trojan fairy.

I despair

 

The Rose

Posted in Healing with tags , , , , on September 23, 2010 by ellocogringo

The Rose

Yet another attempt to explain what’s happening in the minds. Left mind speacializing in top down thinking. Right mind specializing in bottom up thinking.

I know this is squishy, the words do not exist for how the minds work. View the left mind as a rose based system and the right mind as a root based system.

In the left mind above the surface is the rose, the shortcut, the set point, the bottom line. If the input matches the rose, the input is confirmed. “it’s a rose” (1/2 second) But let’s say it’s not a rose, then the left algorithm is searched (dendrites) for a match. If no match is made the right algorithm is searched for consistancies, if no match is made the “best answer to date” right “maybe flower?” if this anwer does not suffice the right mind may A) muse (search for non inconsistincies) or B) blow it off (dunno)

Emotional problems up to and including a mental breakdown occurs when there is a top down logic fail (it’s a tarantula) and the dendrites get ripped out by the roots. The left algorithm has a “blind spot”. depending on how bad this blind spot is the person may go to plan B, operating in bottom up mode. This is called psychosis by a psychologist. The concept that got demolished must grow new roots in the left mind based on an inverted right mind root system. Gotta find a new home. They’re looking for a home

“The Gaia hypothesis is an ecological hypothesis proposing that the biosphere and the physical components of the Earth (atmosphere, cryosphere, hydrosphere and lithosphere) are closely integrated to form a complex interacting system that maintains the climatic and biogeochemical conditions on Earth in a preferred homeostasis.”– Wikipedia This seems to be very similar to the Aboriginal world view. Ie man is an integral part of the world. Gaia’s Laughter

“Mother Nature can provide man’s needs, but not all man’s wants” – el Loco Gringo

The first council of Nicea AD 325, in an effort to expunge all feminity from christianity replaced father, son and shakinah with father, son and holy ghost. Shakinah was the feminine side of god. Analysis testing of “the last supper” by da Vinci reveals that a female figure was painted over, speculation was that it was Mary Magdelen. Just to Jesus’s right (that’s the guy in the red dress. Below) Also expunged was Book of Mary I and II. The wife’s vow, “to love, honor, and cherish” was replaced with, “to love, honor and obey.” The translation involved in the original ceremony was inaccurate. Thus the western world was left with all power and no finesse.

And then there is Azna. Mother God is the emotion. She can move, nurture, intervene and interfere. The relationship between Azna and earth is especially close. She is the harmonizer, the active helper and keeper of life. Her dominion is all living things on earth, from which the cherished image of Mother Nature was inspired. She’s been called the Lady of Lotus by Buddhists, as well as Ashara, Theodora, Sophie and Isis in faiths and cultures throughout the world for centuries upon centuries. Without the all-knowing, all-perfect intellect of Father God (om), we would be pure emotion. Without Azna, we would be pure intellect.

“A deep reverence for Mother Earth lies at the heart of the beliefs and traditions of the native nations of North America. Whether for inhabitants of lush, fertile lands, arid desert, ocean shores, or the harsh subartic, nature is the peoples’ bountiful provider, and earth the sustainer of life. As seen in the lifeways of ancient hunter-gatherers, trappers, and fishers through centuries of adaptation to new circumstances, homelands, and techniques, a profound respect for earth’s fellow-creatures – both philosophical and practical – permeates Native American society.” – Searching Eagle

YawarMayu Mother DreamCatcher

I have heard the Aboriginal worldview described as Circular. Circular reasoning is an attempt to support a statement by simply repeating the statement in different or stronger terms. In this fallacy, the reason given is nothing more than a restatement of the conclusion that poses as the reason for the conclusion.I don’t see it that way, I see it as “wheels within wheels” and not even “what goes around comes around” but “what goes around comes around goes around etc”. For instance the Mayan 260 day calendar would seem to make no sense unless one considers that the gestation period is 260 days. Thus if a woman conceived on Tzolkin 10 she could expect the birth on Tzolkin 10, As this was synchronized with the Haab (365 day calendar) no calculation was needed

In keeping with Mr. Ted’s suggestion of using “whorls within whorls” rather than “wheels within wheels” I went looking again for cymatics. Even closer to reality however is “waves within waves”

These are some really cool videos. Highly idealized though. It is amazing what emotions can be evoked with such primitave instuments as the flute, the drum and the Moog synthesizer.

“An animated image shows a collision between two subatomic particles embedded in our 3-D universe (or “brane”). The collision produces other particles, including a graviton that escapes from our brane into the extradimensional “bulk” that lies beyond.”

Found Here> Unexplained

This is what I’m talking about. The Aristotelian Brain Fart focuses attention on the sub-atomic particles. If, however, attention were focused on the “ripples” it wouldn’t be unexplained.

This has nothing to do with physics or math, but how the mind’s analyze problems.

That’s as succinct as I can get it.

Dance of life

Posted in Healing with tags , , , , , , , , on September 16, 2010 by ellocogringo

“Anomie is the enemy”

So you’ve got this dance of life happening as the the mind surfs the turbulent sea of life. No, that’s not a typo, Freud was a fraud. feel free to substitute whatever words you feel comfortable with, the word is not the concept. tao’s a good model as is plato’s. It doesn’t matter, the right mind can’t speak english so it doesn’t really care one way or the other. So the id (sub-conscious, bottom up, yin, mythos whatever) just keeps on collating data for non-inconsistincies, the ego (conscious, top down, yang, logos whatever) just keeps on analyzing the non-inconsistencies and the super ego (caretaker, ANN, supervisor, tao, me whatever) just keeps on evaluating the results of the ego and the id for practicality. Life happens, no matter what words we use or what plans we make. The ANN must deal with reality, not what we think reality is. Mobiles NittyGritty

The Id, Ego and Super-ego keep balancing to keep us ahead of the wave. Dealing with war, love, hate, disease, disappointment, fear, triumph, despair, castastrophe, ideology etc and last but not least, trying to figure out what the hell el Loco Gringo’s talking about.

el Loco Gringo is talking about ideologies, whether societal imprinting, religion, education et al which attach an anchor to the surfboard so we are no longer riding the wave but the wave is riding us. Society becomes psychotic and we go insane trying to deal with it. (insane, not crazy, insane) Barring physiological problems that’s what psychosis is. We can’t keep ahead of the wave with that anchor on the surfboard.

That’s what I’m talking about.

The Lattice – Block on constructivist thinking. Imposed by education to force conformist thinking.

The Taboo – on pride. Imposed by religion and upbringing. Imposes subservience.

Centering – has been disrupted by the efforts of others to control us

Misogyny – Discourages “woman think”

Buddha Mind

Posted in Godesses with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 14, 2010 by ellocogringo

InSingapore I was told I had the “Buddha mind”. Asked around, came up with a definition of “naive wisdom”. Well, OK, I guess. Coupla days ago a Hindu told me that same thing, manager of a convenience store, what else. He’s a pretty fart smeller, at least in my opinion, so I decided to check it out further. Turns out that “buddha mind” AKA “big mind” is what I call normal. I’d just be redundant to go on about it, so I’ll just refer a couple of links if you’re curious. I just noticed that buddha in the top graphic’s got boobs. A female buddha? Just a minute, let me check it out. Thanks for waiting, I’ll be dipped in buzzard puke, there really is a female buddha, Kwan Yin. Link below. I’ll look at it as soon as I post this.

You don’t cripple the pipelines with ideology. Don’t put governors on the pods, don’t hobble the horses.

Field of leaves

Posted in The Minds with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 11, 2010 by ellocogringo

Consider an old cash register. (This is actually the image eLG gives me). There is no calculation going on. You move the appropriate lever and the appropriate leaf pops up. It doesn’t have anything to do what what is printed on the leaf or the key. Which leaf pops up is dependent on the position of the key. It ain’t thinking, it just is. Topeka

The image I get from eLG is the right mind is a “field of leaves” (except 3 dimensional) and the left mind runs a metaphorical hand over this metaphorical field of leaves looking for non-inconsistency. if a leaf is popped up, (inconsistent) it sets off the bullshit detector. and SHOULD (if not hijacked) flip over to the bottom up mode.Keeping in mind that we are talking metaphorically about about this stuff, the leaves are just flux in the tensors of the right mind. And a leaf corresponds to a phase shift relating to a consistency or inconsistency depending on phase shift. The third dimension (metaphorical remember) the fourth dimension would give the other two states, not consistent or not inconsistent. for the 4 way boolean network. This would be happening at the dendrite level (logic) synced with but separate from the axon level (perception) If I understand eLG correctly, this is a pretty good 2 dimensional represention of the 3 dimensional process going on in the right mind, Plato’s mythos. This is in the frequency domain.I am talking about concepts here, or thoughts, or symbols, the word doesn’t really exist that describes it exactly nor can they. This analysis is what I would class as “this idea seems to work”, better than “could be” but not yet “best answer to date”. So If I’m understanding this correctly, this is musing (collating, freq domain), with the left mind analyzing, (time domain) This process does not normally occur at a conscious level, but is continually going on in the background. (sub-conscious) our actions being dictated by pre-surmised shortcuts <1/2 second, and then accessing 3 1/2 to 7 seconds. Rarely museing, “head up ass mode” The amplitude being determined by the reticulator. It can be negative remember, so the graphic would show the arrows going the other way.

This is an evaluation of a perception of what what Mr Ted calls the “great mysterious” (reality)

Two realtively simple processes, not one complex one

We only think we’re thinking.

This is really squishy here. It is incredibly difficult to find the words.

As an aside, I “knew” to type in animated flux when looking for the graphic. How? first hit. I’ve never used that word in that context. Schrodinger’s “one mind”?

Mach

Posted in TD/BU with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on September 9, 2010 by ellocogringo

Ernst

Mach

>What these fools did, as Mach has said, was to save their successors the trouble of thinking. If they had worked solely in view of an immediate application, they would have left nothing behind them, and in face of a new requirement, all would have had to be done again. Now the majority of men do not like thinking, and this is perhaps a good thing, since instinct guides them, and very often better than reason would guide a pure intelligence, at least whenever they are pursuing an end that is immediate and always the same. But instinct is routine, and if it were not fertilized by thought, it would advance no further with man than with the bee or the ant. It is necessary, therefore, to think for those who do not like thinking, and as they are many, each one of our thoughts must be useful in as many circumstances as possible. For this reason, the more general a law is, the greater is its value.
Mr T>it gives me another way of looking at the problems in our society. i think that our KISS habit amounts to an ‘economy of words’. the economy of thought is moving us towards ‘everything is One’ while the economy of words is moving us to jargon whose individual words unfold into a story and each person reading them has to supply their own version of the story. within the story are many more words, whose meaning is of the same vintage as when those who do not like thinking were told what they meant.
Mach, in this snippit has made a couple of logic flaws.
1) He seems to feel that There is one thing happening inside the skull and one outside.
2) He has not considered all the possibilities.
call it extrinsic/intrinsic, whatever
As to 1) there are two things happening inside the skull and one outside.
As to 2) there are 4 possibilities, not 2.

Inside the skull are two processes, top down and bottom up
top down (binary, serial, whatever) leads him to believe there are people who like to think and people who don’t.
1) people who like to think
2) people who don’t.
This is, in and of itself, kiss thinking.
As I see it (boolean, parallel whatever)
HOWEVER, if you work the logic both ways (bottom up) there are 4 possibilities.
1) people who like to think
2) people who don’t
3) people who won’t
4) people who can’t
both views are valid, but bottom up is the more complete. By complete, i mean we have reached the limit of mankinds cognitive abilities. (inside the skull only, which may not be an absolute limit.)
for instance, you contrast thought and words, you seem to be mixing oranges and orangutans.
thinking contrasts with musing
words contrasts with symbols.
thinking goes with words
musing goes with symbols

It’s an equation with these parameters. Philosophy, simply put, is a seemingly endless debate over what side of the equals sign to put the parameters on. A worldview is just different words used to describe these parameters, and determine the right and wrong side of the equals sign to put these words on.
Oranges and orangutans is an interesting topic by the way, I’ll do a post on them. Oranges

>there is no reason that a western person can’t see things the same way and intuitively he does (‘what goes around comes around’

This conclusion is false. A western person can know but not understand. Mr Ted understands and knows. His approach appears to be to differentiate lesser minds who are speculating only rather than integrating HIS own concepts into HIS framework in terms HE can understand so as to be able to communicate. This appears to me to be like trying to explain calculus to an uneducated person by using pebbles. A considerable task indeed when you consider that most physicists don’t understand calculus. I feel that there is much to be gained in helping him in his quest.
>”I’m trying to imagine a science fiction movie in which large numbers of humans shifted their thinking to bring it more into alignment with what you’re suggesting. Perhaps it’s inaccurate to suggest humans would be responsible for this shift. However it happens, what would it look like I wonder?”

AE van Vogt, the world of Null A (non-aristotelian)

But yes, a new way of thinking is required, but I don’t see how this can be accomplished in the numbers necessary to enable the momentum required to shift mankind’s course. we need to get past how we think, and look instead at how we think about thinking. I’ve been trying to figure this out for 65 years without success. Somebody once commented, Eddington I think, “once we figure out that one and one is two, we think we understand. We forget we need to analyze “and”. No matter how eloquent the words, no matter how irrefutable the facts, no matter how impecable the logic, no matter how noble the cause, You know that they can’t hear you. Not in any way. There are no neurons there.

Vindicated

Yoga has been vindicated. Baptists recently announced that Yoga is a forbidden activity. The baptists have joined a growing list of christrian churches banning yoga. It is not a proper path for worshiping god as it seeks the spirituality within. Not suprising. I recall the joke about why baptists don’t have sex standing up, someone might think they’re dancing. Yoga is has long been banned in islamic countries. Also not suprising, they’re against everything especially anyone who questions their tenet that Islam is the “religion of peace” If you don’t believe it, they’ll kill you. Islam hasn’t had a reformation so is full scale idiocy, not the half idiocy we have in christianity.

In singapore, the people see no problem in practicing yoga and christianity. Nor do I. But if I were forced to choose, i’d pick yoga.

Lost in the fog

I’ve been working with computers since about 1970, mostly mini-computers like the VAX 11-780 (left), RDS500, and SEL.  

I also had a TI PPC which I got dirt cheap when TI went out of the computer business. It was really quite nice but didn’t work with anything but itself, I had to program it myself.  I sold it at a garage sale and got $50, and I consider myself fortunate. TI PPC

The first affordable ($200) Personal Computer was the Timex-Sinclair which had games like tic-tac-toe, chess, checkers, battleship, and various “adventure” games, text based they usually started out with (fill in the blank) is lost in the fog.

Which brings me to why I’m babbling about computers.  The majority of people are lost in the fog and don’t know it, the majority of the remainder are lost in the fog and don’t care. And a very few are lost in the fog and know it.  A quality of communication I call “squishy”.  For reasons I am not entirely clear on, I am aware of squishy.

To explain it I will re-define a few words.  First, reality. Reality is real.  Call it universe, great mysterious, god, space time continuum, Tao, ether if you prefer, doesn’t matter. It’s just a word for something that won’t fit inside our skulls. This seems obvious to me but apparently not to others.

Now we leave the land of reality and enter the land of squishy. (inside the skull)  Nothing here is real.  We see and we think about what we see.

As to what we see I’ll call yin and yang (it’s kinda close) the yin being the perception of reality and yang being the interpretation of reality.

As to what we think about what we see I’ll call mythos and logos (it’s kinda close)  Mythos being what we muse about yin and logos being what we think about yang.

The logos and mythos are compared and used to make a decision on what we do about yin and yang.  None of this is reality.  Reality, and only reality, is real.

The squishy occurs with the yin and mythos part of this operation, with various duality views confusing one or the other or both but mostly neither for reality. (if they bother to think about it)

Most people are not aware of yin and mythos. (idiots) Most of the remainder don’t care.  (centered) But a few, a very few do.   (transcedents)

Is this really that complicated?  Try to keep your eye on the ball.

And I repeat, Mr Ted, You’re too much in your head, you’re overthinking this.  Keep in mind I do agree with what  you’re saying, you’re just incomplete.  You’ve replaced the concepts with words.  The word is not the concept.  This is a new kind of squishy to me.  Fascinating.

Road Less Traveled

This is a take off of the poem by David Frost, there’s quite a bit of stuff here.  The premise is that sometimes the more difficult choice is the better choice.  The episode has quite a following.  With good reason I think.  These are a few links.  Pop your popcorn.

The Road Less Traveled is the seventh episode in the fourth season of the re-imagined Battlestar Galactica. It first aired on television on May 2, 2008.

Gaius Baltar to Galen Tyrol about his conversion to a believer:
“I know it’s hard to…make sense of things sometimes. In my own life, I…in my own life I’ve joined the fleet as a scientist, as a skeptic, as a…supposedly a man of reason. Only to have fate turn that all on its head. But I understand now that there is a purpose to it. We change. We evolve. Maybe we even learn something along the way. (pauses) I have committed…unconscionable crimes. And I have been offered one last chance at redemption, because I chose to accept my fate and not fight it anymore.”
This is the episode perdition (eternal Damnation)  Awesome  I’ve got it set to cycle through the episodes. I’ll be back later, the popcorn’s ready   battlestar RoadLessTraveled BattleWikia

 

Worldview

Posted in Lost Gods with tags , , , , on August 28, 2010 by ellocogringo

Worldview

I was challanged recently “you claim to understand the Amerind world view”. Well, that’s true, I also do not “understand” anything. Nor do I know how a 300 lb fat man in a red suit gets down that 6 inch pipe to put presents under the Yule tree every Christmas.  But I am gaining an understanding on worldviews.  The issue is not the man in the red suit but the presents under the tree. The fat man is a myth, the presents are real.

A worldview is a myth, a suite of social mores, words, traditions, used to describe something which is happening in the right mind, evaluated in the left mind, and expressed as a worldview.   PTIB

Two people can be in the same situation, have the same thing happening in their right minds, and the left mind can describe what is happening in two, seemingly different ways.

Worldview “ain’t real” in the same sense that euclidian space “ain’t real” the logical brain fart as compared to the perceptual brain fart, the delusional belief that there is something unique happening in the mind and that their “worldview” is the valid one and the other is not.

The worldview is not the issue, but the evaluation of the perception that is happening in the mind. The problem is not that western civilization has an invalid worldview, but that it doesn’t have a worldview.

Mother earth, shakina, yoga, bottom up, sub conscious, psyche, nirvana, constructionist are merely words used to describe this “happening”. God and religion are mutually exclusive concepts.  If you prefer to think of the universe as GOD, GOD is outside the skull, god is inside (if not hijacked by religion). god being our perception of GOD. (GOD is not god) ShortcutGod Deicide

It helps to have a worldview, it doesn’t matter which one

What, exactly, is happening in the right mind?

Why do you people complexify things so?

Topeka

Posted in The Minds with tags , , , , on August 26, 2010 by ellocogringo

Topeka

Problems associated with applying top down logic to bottom up problems.

Some things just is

Applying TD logic to BU problems is kinda like barking up the wrong tree, or off on a wild goose chase, but more akin to barking up the wrong goose chase. i.e. it’s not just inappropriate, it’s inappropriately inappropriate. Not only is it on the wrong page, it is in the wrong book in the wrong library, in the wrong language.

I will use the word musing to apply to Bottom Up Thinking, although, strictly speaking, it’s not even thinking or cognition but more akin to browsing, running your hand over a surface and feeling for bumps. Differences, inconsistencies. It’s more about what something ain’t than what it is.

Consider Topeka. Why? Because it is an inconsistency. It’s a mental tag I use to keep track of essays I’ve done on bottom up thinking. But why use that why? Because, as Dora thy would say, when we go into the right mind “Toto, I don’t think we’re in Kansas anymore.” Different rules apply. So if I forget where I put that paper on “Problems associated with applying top down logic to bottom up problems” I can simply name it “Topeka 09/26/10 Problems associated with applying top down logic to bottom up problems” I don’t have to remember the data, or even the name, nor do I have to search for it. I can just list it and all the essays I’ve done on right mind, yin, bottom up, etc. Even if I forget Topeka, I can search for any of yin, bottom up, constructionist etc because they are in the tag I forgot i.e. Topeka. It works both ways.

Consider Topeka again. A map this time, How hard would it be to reproduce it without a Xerox? How about if you couldn’t speak English? How about if you were illiterate. Yet if you an amazon Tupi were dropped in front of the post office and walked to the airport, and your map were taken away the Tupi could get back to the post office, you wouldn’t. That’s because you think different. Your mind is used to using a map and top down thinking, his isn’t. Loosing the map doesn’t make a bit of difference to the Tupi. Why, why, why? Because the Tupi hasn’t had his brain messed up by the ABF, his right mind is continually working the logic both ways. On the way to the airport while your mind is saying turn right here, the Tupi mind is flagging this turn as a trigger for the way back. In other words, he is making a reverse map in his head. And he’s not even aware this is happening, the reverse map just is. Tell him you want to go to the post office and off he goes. He doesn’t know what the post office is, but he knows where it is. Drop him off at a third location and he won’t retrace his steps but strike off cross country. The direction to go just is. He’d be puzzled why you can’t do it. (maintain situational awareness) the “where am I?” that has been crippled by the ABF. But why does it matter? Because the ABF has not only messed up your situational awareness, it has messed up your thinking. The Tupi has situational awareness, you don’t. This applies to everything including the universe.

Consider an old cash register. (This is actually the image eLG gives me). There is no calculation going on. You move the appropriate lever and the appropriate leaf pops up. It doesn’t have anything to do what what is printed on the leaf or the key. Which leaf pops up is dependent on the position of the key. It ain’t thinking, it just is.

A neuron seeks out and communicates. It’s a bottom up system. I am trying desperately to explain how the right mind works. It can’t be done with words. It’s negentropic. It self organizes. It just is. It’s really simple. I despair.

We just think we’re thinking

End Game

Posted in About Me with tags , , , , , on August 24, 2010 by ellocogringo

Hi Mr Ted

starting from the top.

>I can ‘see’ your categories; idiots, centereds, nexialists, …………….

Hmm! When we moved from Alec to LeCompte, I went from an environment where probably half the students were idiots, (I was already using the term by then) to one in which all were idiots, save one. He was a Chickasaw Indian. He was capable of musing. (not an idiot) As I recall the Chickasaw were renegade Choctaw. And some of what he said contrasts somewhat with what I saw on the Chickasaw nation website. The latter being glorified. You do the same thing. Of the aboriginal cultures that I have seen life tends to be “nasty, brutal and short” – Hobbes? I don’t buy into this “noble savage” idea, my experiences tell me that aboriginal life sucks. Although there is much to be learned, there is much that is forgotten. (probably for the best) I may do a post on this.

>the notion that the brain is the sole sourcer(or) of ourbehavior falls short.

That’s what I’m all about, big guy, we only think we’re thinking. (normally) An idiot is incapable of thought, instead reacting with non-surmised shortcuts. (top down, imprinting) + learning that fits within the imprint algorithm. A centered pre-surmises and may occasionally muse (think bottom up), a nexialist can flip on demand. (see above) I may do a post on this

>you seem to be referring to western ‘civilization’.

Nope, mankind, Lakota included.

>in practice education has never been an instrument to free the mind and the spirit of man, but to bind them

yup!

>my impression is that we are, before all, situational learners

It’s supposed to be that way, but it isn’t

>But these ‘adult ideas’ are ‘knowledge’ or ‘de-situationalized learning’.

But these ‘adult ideas’ are imprinting, overlaid by de-situationalized learning’. Knowledge is the sum of the two

>1. Idiots are those who accept their de-situationalized role-play lives

for the way the world works (they ‘become’ their role-plays).

2. Centered are those who understand that this stage play wherein

everyone is supposed to accept a role is ‘pure theatrics’ born of a

self-other splitting culture but who feel unable or unwilling to co-evolve

an alternative culture which could take over.

3. Nexialists are centereds who are compelled to NOT NECESSARILY ‘do

something’, … about this game of self-betrayal and self-deception, but to

EXPOSE IT AS A GAME so that belief in the game will dissolve and it will

just ‘go away’.

Eggzactly

as to zietgeist, ontgeist this happened with the beatles, on ontgeist, the world used to be different, not in a time sense but in a spacial sense. i.e. The world has been malled. Nairobi used to be different than Topeka. No more, go to nairobi and check into the ramada in, watch HBO maybe, grab a burger at McDonalds and maybe top it off with a latte at starbucks. Unseen are those at the periphery forced off their subsistence farming lifestyle and working at mega farms, subjected to strip searches as they leave to make sure they don’t have an avacado shoved up their ass to feed their family. Civilization spreads death, poverty and destruction and calls it “economic progress”

So as I shuffle into my dotage at the end of my 65 year quest to understand why people are dumb, I know, but I don’t know what to do about it. Dumb they are, and, apparantly, dumb they shall remain. But the journey has been fun. There’s much to be said for Hemingwaying as a lifestyle. So I have to content myself that there is no grail, there is only the quest, which is shared by a few eclectic kindred spirits. an amusement only. Ephiphany

opinions on my presentation style is none of my business.

Dark Madonna

Posted in Godesses with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 21, 2010 by ellocogringo

 

For the ordinary people of the Cathar lands, and especially for the women, the Virgin Mary was in fact worshipped and she was (and is) the Dark Madonnas of southern France and northern Spain and she summoned up all the ancient pagan fertility beliefs of the earth they lived upon. This Virgin Mary was the people’s goddess and the irony of the Cathar massacres is that this Dark Mary survived.

Diva – Isn’t this the paradox of any good idea? The Virgin Mary became an institution of power and control, a diva. By the 16th century her cult was out of control, although this may have helped her pull off the destruction of the Turkish navy at Lepanto in 1571.
darkmadonna DreamingVirginMary StAloysius

 

DancingInTheFlames – An often misunderstood Feminine force is raised to her place of honor This is a profound exploration of the often misunderstood Dark Goddess and her ability to transform all of us. Marion Woodman leads us all in a deeper understanding of the often unseen & unappreciated aspects of the Feminine, so needed for a soulful life. The dedication of this book to Sophia says it all “Integrity in love is the only true guide to the wisdom that leads to freedom”. Thank you Marion and Elinor for being the wise women who lead us all to freedom by giving our souls the rich sustenance of the numinous Feminine goddesses.

 

 

Is this then armagedan II? Another battle in the never ending yin/yang war. The battle between the forces of good, the divine feminine, and the forces of evil the fallen angels of the feminazis?

Consider what religion has done to islam and christianity. Consider what politics has done to democracy. Consider what law has done to justice. Consider “burka Rage” an opening skirmish perhaps? Did the devine feminine attack the suppressed fallen angel? Consider. This is a war that will have no winners. Isn’t it odd how we keep dancing to the same tune, even after the band has stopped playing? ShoppingForBurkas

“I am blessed/cursed with the gift/burden of the we inside of me“. – el Loco Gringo

Is this the angel of death that keeps being alluded to? Is this what brought on the dark ages? Is this the precipice? Is this the abyss? Could be, but there are a lot of candidates. Instead of the road not taken, we keep to the long and winding road. “The moving finger writes, and having writ, moves on” – Omar Khayyam

I don’t have a good feeling about this

 

 

Wanna

Posted in Cosmos with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 19, 2010 by ellocogringo

Wisdom, the neuron that wants to grow up to be a brain. Negentropy is the charactistic of the universe that provides this wanna. All god’s chillens got wanna. This is nowhere more evident that the neuron which self-organizes when given the chance and a favorable environment. But for this to happen an unfolding must have wanna to be an atom, an atom must have wanna to be a molecule, a molecule must have wanna to be a cell, and a cell must have wanna to be a neuron. And the neuron must have wanna to be a brain. And a brain has wanna to be what? To be one with the universe. In RatBrain watch this wanna at work. The local power ego which at first glance appears to be exclusionary, turns out to be not so exclusionary after all. The molecule wanna be included, and life happens. Ain’t synergy nice? It is, after all, all the same thing.

“Harald C. Ott, a researcher now at Massachusetts General Hospital, took all the cells off a rat heart, leaving only a framework behind. His team then put rat stem cells onto this scaffold, whereupon the cells self-organized and the heart began to beat. Turns out life happens, and we are just learning the rules on how to program it.” – Foreign Policy Newsletter

WOW!!! Ain’t this weird? Negentropy reigns. Do the word Ratbrain2 ring a bell?

A quality I have long used in hiring is gottawanna. The candidate gotta wanna. He must have connectnedness. He must be normal. It made life easy. Show them where their office is, and they would make themselves usefu.

Wisdom for centuries has been a religious or philosophical concept that varies somewhat by culture. But Jeste tells ScientificAmerican.com that there is reason to believe that it’s rooted in neurobiology. He and Meeks pored through medical literature, locating 10 papers that defined wisdom. Based on commonalities in the research, the two proposed that wisdom is made up of the behaviors that reflect the good of the group, pragmatism, emotional balance, self-understanding, tolerance and the ability to deal with ambiguity.

“If you look at it in this fashion, it makes sense to have a balance among these regions to lead to something akin to wisdom,” he says. “You need cold, calculating rationality but also emotional sociableness. You need to have rewards for what you do and punishments for what you don’t do and conflict detection and resolution.”

Jeste and Meeks concede that some might call their conclusions reductionistic because they based their “map” not on the idea that wisdom is a single trait, but a collection of attributes. But Jeste said that similarities between how wisdom was portrayed thousands of years ago in the Bhagavad Gita (a Hindu scripture) and in the West today — as well as the tale of Phineas Gage, a railway worker whose allegedly wise attributes such as amiability and good judgment were said to vanish after a spike penetrated his left frontal lobe — “makes you think it’s not a cultural phenomenon but biologically consistent.”

Cloud Mind

Cloud

It is interesting how the society and the internet mimic each other. You could almost picture Google and the other search engines acting at the axon (perception) level and the links acting at the dendrite (interpretation, learning) level. Consider the blogroll, wherein like minded sites are set, each with it’s own network. Negentropy. With the individual computer at the neuron level and the internet at the brain level, with search engines as random co-relators. For a particular field of interest, at some point. it will just be necessary to find a couple of like-minded sites and link to them. Instead of searching for information, the information will “search” for you. “build it and they will come” – Field of dreams. And it works, they do indeed come. From the most amazing places. Places I would never have thought to search. Just follow the trackbacks, and there they are. How odd. How very odd. Instead of looking for “people like me” I put my interest on the net and “people like me” find me. neat!

The society/individual cloud mind, however, is not doing so well. That’s why I picked the stormy cloud. This is another unfinished post. I don’t know where it’s going, but it’s trucking right along, getting there in a hurry. Singularity? Social consciousness.? Cosmic mind? Should be fun. Maybe we can get there before the hyper-males shut it down.

The key to appropriate and effective application of the self-construct is to develop a healthy self, rather than to eliminate the self entirely. Eradication of the self is form of nihilism that leads to an inability to function in the world. That is not something that Buddhist or neuroscientists advocate. So what is a healthy self? In an individual, a healthy self is a construct that accurately represents past, present and projected future internal and external state, and that is highly self-aware, rational but not overly so, adaptable, respectful of external systems and other beings, and open to learning and changing to fit new situations. The same is true for a healthy collective self. However, most individuals today do not have healthy selves — they have highly delluded, unhealthy self-constructs. This in turn is reflected in the higher-order self-constructs of the groups, organizations and communities we build.

Supercomputers built from subcomputers were invented 50 years ago. Back then clusters of tightly integrated specialized computer chips in close proximity were designed to work on one kind of task, such as simulations. This was known as cluster computing. In recent years, we’ve created supercomputers composed of loosely integrated individual computers not centralized in one building, but geographically distributed over continents and designed to be versatile and general purpose. This later supercomputer is called grid computing because the computation is served up as a utility to be delivered anywhere on the grid, like electricity. It is also called cloud computing because the tally of the exact component machines is dynamic and amorphous – like a cloud. The actual contours of the grid or cloud can change by the minute as machines come on or off line.

“GOD transcends religion, Religion doesn’t transcend GOD” – eLG

“Religion is shortcut thinking about god” – el Loco Gringo

“The unconsciousness of man is the consciousness of God” -Thoreau

” A scientist challenges God to a creation-of-life competition and then, like God, picks up some dirt to start his work. “Oh no,” says God. “Go get your own dirt.”

Does god exist? Dunno. Kinda depends on how you define god. If she does, I’m pretty sure she’s not Jewish, Catholic or Presbyterian. Or Allah or Buddha or any of the other hypostatized beliefs which have been used to control the masses. Personally. I don’t think she’s that big of an asshole. She is our Self Worth, Pride is what religion calls self worth, one of the seven deadly sins. However, if there is a god, I understand she is not bound by my beliefs. I consider god and religion to be mutually exclusive concepts. I find the people who discount god just as idiotic as those who believe in religion. If the brain fart could be overcome, it may be possible to determine reality. Wouldn’t that be cool? I kinda favor Gaia, although my opinion carries about as much weight as a fart in a hurricane.

So god is inside our skulls. GOD is outside. Or vectors are inside, the universe is outside. Or Wonder is inside, wander is outside. Or science is inside, the cosmos is outside. These are only words. There is something “out there” that we don’t understand. You can call it GOD if you will and our perception of GOD as god.

Religion is a totally different thing. It is an ideology. It is dogma. It is an hipostatized belief imprinted on our minds by monotheistic churches so as to control the masses. Judaism, christianity, science, atheism and islam fall into this category. WHAT? atheism and science are religions? But of course. They are hipostatized belief systems. A central tenet of both is non-belief. Their minds have been imprinted in non-belief in belief. They hold the delusional belief that they understand what is “out there”, or more precisely, what is “not out there”. In fact, there may be a cosmic intelligence “out there” which we are part of and which some people may call GOD. Or…….maybe not! Dunno. Do not confuse cause and effect. Religion and god are mutually exclusive concepts. God is possible, religion is bullshit.

On the other hand Bhuddism, Tao, yoga, jainism, animism, kaballah etc. are totally different things. They are not religions, per se, but paths to enlightenment. They are frameworks used to understand what is “out there”. Like a neuron trellis they focus our thoughts. Like a neuron trellis they provide a path. “It helps to have a god to meditate on, it doesn’t matter which one” – Patel Consider the shaman, once you get past the mysticism, it makes perfect sense, certainly more than psychology (also an ideology).

So a scientist and an atheist are just different types of idiot. It must be so simple to be an idiot, just sprinkle pixie dust on a concept, call it bullshit, and you don’t have to think. Just a slam dunk. A thought stopping mechanism.

When religion replaced god we lost that direct experience. Thomas Aquinas pointed this out when he observed “there is no virtue in performing a good deed if there is no choice”

So, where is god? She is within all of us. She has been suppressed by religion. She has been made taboo by the belief systems which were developed by religion as a method to control the masses. This has left the individual with an insatiable need. We have lost our balance.

This is the “hole in our soul”, the anomie of man.

We are that god we seek

Lady of the Lotus

Hindus call our earth Brahma, or God, for they rightly see

“no difference between our earth and the divine.”

The Supreme Cosmic Spirit in Hindu Vedanta philosophy is known as Brahman. One of these Hindu godesses is Kali Maa. She’s kind of a kick ass godess. I like her.

From this perspective the Big Hoochie Koochie IS god and each of us is, as an individual, a Little Hoochie Koochie.

Truth, Belief, Myth

Posted in About Me with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 17, 2010 by ellocogringo

When I started this post, I thought of Truth. Anybody seen the Crucible? The Salem Witch Trials? They’re still going on you know? 3500 cases nationwide. One was just finished about two months ago. The witch was acquited. eLG struck again and got revenge. The real story of Salem is interesting also. Much of it is untold. The proctors had tied the “witches” up behind a wagon and were dragging them around the township. The men in Salisbury challanged the proctors rescued the women, tied the proctors up behind the wagon and stampeded the horses. At this point the Governor sent a representative to find out WTF. The husbands of the “witches” went to Salisbury to get their wives and were told “Piss off, gentle persons, when thee can defend thy wives thee may retreive them, till then thee may jerk off, jerk offs. Come back and we’ll get meideval on your sorry arses” (something like that) Amish Paradise

Anyhow, back to the main point. What exactly is truth? Turns out it is different for each person. Each individual is unique, with his own triumphs and trageties. Dogma is TRUTH. But there are many truths. So what is my truth?

The relationship between belief and knowledge is that a belief is knowledge if the belief is true and if the believer has a justification (reasonable and necessarily plausible assertions/evidence/guidance) for believing it is true. A myth, on the other hand is an unprovable or implausible belief. Thus a belief may be either a truth or a myth. For instance, England is to me a belief and a truth (been there, done that, bought the T-shirt) As is Germany, Chad, France, Singapore etc. On the other hand Gibralter, Columbia, Tasmania are beliefs (never been there) there is a remote possibility they are myths. Atlantis, Wu, Eldorado, Valhalla, are non-beliefs with a remote possibility that they are not myths. With this in mind, my belief system follows;
True – ANN, unANN,
Belief – Lattice, Taboo, Centering
Myth – psychology, sociology, capitalism, politics
The mind is not a mental abstract in isolation. It is a cork floating on a turbulent sea, buffeted by waves, undertows, high winds, doldrums, whirlpools. The mind’s job is to cope with this troubled sea in a timely manner. Man is just DNA’s way of making more man DNA. This “purpose” is evident in all life. IE the purpose of a chicken’s DNA is to make more chicken DNA. By extension the “purpose” of life is to make more life.

Here’s a link to the article on Oprah’s web site.

Clutter

Peter walsh’s latest book, Enough Already! Clearing Mental Clutter to Become the Best You, he makes the link between a disorganized home and the untidy thoughts that can muddle our relationships and well-being. He was recently on the Oprah show touting his new book.

O: And the term “clutter” is all-encompassing.

Walsh: It means anything that stands between you and the vision you have for your best life. It could be a pile of inherited furniture or a jumble of kids’ toys all over the living room. But it could also be the constant self-doubt that creeps into your decision-making, anger about how you’re treated at work, shame about your weight or looks, or a tendency to respond defensively and critically when your spouse challenges you. Whatever the case, you have to ask yourself, “Does this item or thought or response move me closer to my vision for my best life?” If it does, great. If it doesn’t, what is it doing in your life?

From Publishers Weekly

Walsh (Does This Clutter Make My Butt Look Fat) skillfully diagnoses and proposes a cure for overburdened people with a six-part plan that systematically addresses relationships, career, family, money, health and spiritual well-being with practical prescriptions and an emotional focus. The relationship section urges readers to become the person you want to come home to and to conduct a personal inventory. Complete with useful clutter-assessment quizzes, this book provides a compelling and comprehensive remedy to the chaos.

Product Description

Does it seem like everything is moving so fast these days you can barely keep up? Do you sometimes feel that your life is spinning out of control? Most of us are so overwhelmed by the stuff in our daily lives — work, bills, family commitments, demands from our kids’ schools — that we rush from person to person and place to place. For many of us, life feels completely out of balance because we give one area of our lives too much attention and the other areas nowhere near enough. This crazy imbalance and the resulting stress and unhappiness you feel are the clutter that Peter Walsh wants to help you tackle in Enough Already!: Clearing Mental Clutter to Become the Best You.

Peter examines the six key areas of your life — Family, Relationships, Work, Health, Money, and Spirituality — and shows how these unique parts of your life are so interrelated that if just one is cluttered, that clutter will creep into the other areas and throw your life off balance. He then offers a step-by-step plan that helps you acknowledge and address the emotional and mental clutter that holds you back from living the richly fulfilling life you deserve.

Peter knows that freeing up a cluttered life (and mind) can sometimes take even greater work and commitment than clearing out a cluttered home, but he is determined to help you change. With his wry humor, his constant encouragement, and the specific tips and practical advice he offers, Peter helps you prioritize what matters in your life. Then his straightforward approach shows you how to let go of the stress and clutter and regain your balance, focus, energy, and purpose. By following his simple plan you will begin to view your life and how you spend your time and energy in a completely new way. You will finally be able to live a stress-free life of balance and fulfillment — the life that’s been buried under all your emotional clutter for years and the one you’ve always imagined.

The desert sky is their blue screen
They superimpose explosions

Those hoods are there for your protection
And meteors these days are the size of corpses”

There are actually four logic paths to consider. (Our bipolar (Aristotelian) view of the world limits us to two). They are left (top down), right (bottom up) neither or both. The occidental world is predominately left, the oriental right, the Mideast neither. And there are separately derived logic trees (springing from a separate seed) fractal (African) and circular (meso-American) Which I really can’t speak to. I’m sure there are others. In other words, all we are talking about here is one family of logic trees. The left/right, male/female, yin/yang, scientific method/yoga, top down/bottom up family. I can’t speak to the others.

“The time has come,
Dreamweaver said,
To speak of many things,
Of whereness and whenness,
And gravity wells,
Of white holes, lifts and strings”

Are you aware that our world view is mirrored in the orient? IE they have oriental idiots who are all right and no left? They use yoga not to gain nirvana but to gain direction? (top down) They have no problem with whereness and whenness but the scientific method eludes them. The inscrutable Chinese think the occidental is inscrutable. What is so complicated? With some synergy it becomes simple. Why are people dumb? The mind is incredible, and it has been mutilated. Evolution (or god or destiny, it doesn’t matter) has given a gift to man and he threw away the gift and is playing with the pretty paper and ribbons. I’m getting frustrated again (a silent scream). I’ll do a paper on logic. May be able to get a page out of it if I pad it with graphics.

Whoa Pardner!
El Loco Gringo is going to step in here. The basic idea here is going with the flow and pissing into the wind. The point of all this yin/yang stuff, is not a or b but synergy between the two (balance power with finesse). One should always maintain the option of pissing with the wind. There’s yoga for you in three sentences.

Picture yourself on a featureless ocean, in a sailboat with auxiliary motor. As long as the weather’s clear the sails are fine, you’re just drifting but you’ve got nowhere to go. Now the weather kicks up. Face the front of the boat and piss. If it hits you in the face, turn the rudder, crank up that auxiliary and haul ass. As the erudite philosopher said in Alice “If you don’t know where you’re going, it doesn’t matter much which you go” – Cheshire Cat. But now you’ve a direction to go, somewhere else.

InSight

“occidentals seek insight, orientals seek outsight” – el Loco Gringo

“In the most embarrassing cases, the person who offered the observation is convinced that the full import of his insight can’t have been understood, and insists upon pressing it again and again. What’s actually happened, though, is that the person has outed himself as desperately behind the curve by offering the very opposite of an insight: some utterly elementary point that everyone else had taken for granted as a premise of the conversation, and indeed, one too obvious to be worth stating among (so they had thought) other reasonably bright and informed people.” Here’s an idiot found here>juliansanchez

and my response

“Amusing
I have an example, every physicist knows that the universe is of a wave nature, Plato, Newton, Einstein UNDERSTOOD this. Yet physicists continue to describe the universe in euclician terms. This is fine if you’re trying to build a bridge but totally inadequate if you’re trying to understand the nature of the universe. Pointing this out to a physicist is an an “outsight”, an elementary and fundamental point that has been overlooked in the discussion. It’s what I call the aristotelian brain fart. Most of the people in this thread are idiots, (used in the clinical sense.) excepting lj and one other. Don’t take umbrage, you’re in good company. most people are idiots. ” run with the squirrls

I notice that everytime I inform someone they’re an idiot, all the love seems to get sucked out of the thread. How odd.

Other terms I’ve heard for idiot, second hander, 2d, hollow, golem, zombie, stupido, superficial, sub-normal.

Please pick another if idiot offends you

Skitter

You and squee are getting hot and heavy into this. but!
something feels uncomfortable about this

The anarchist team (a peer-peer network or ‘web-of-life’ type organization) implicitly recognizes that the
dynamic space that includes us (aka the ‘habitat’) TRANSCENDS the transient
inhabitants that are continually gathered and being regathered in the
spatial flow; i.e. the inhabitants are not ‘primary’ in the world dynamic
(as the Amerindians say; ‘the habitat does not belong to the inhabitant, the
inhabitant belongs to the habitat’ [‘the earth does not belong to man, man
belongs to the earth]).

not that there’s anything wrong with the answer, but something wrong with the implied question
so far what comes to mind is;
Our minds (plural) are optimized for dealing with reality by asking questions that can be posed for resolution by either a binary rational process or a boolean logical process or both. IE A or B or Both. However, unaddressed is the forth option Neither. The Both option has been negated by the ABF or the TBF. But the neither option is still open. thinking in known, unknown terms there are known knowns, known unknowns, unknown knowns but unanswered is the unknowns. the dog that doesn’t bark. the occurrence that leaves no trace. the non-exception. the problem i had with your sailboat without reference points. I pointed out there are always two reference points, here and somewhere else, the vector depending on whether the exception is positive or negative. I know this is squishy but maybe it can’t be helped. And the further we zoom in and out from the optimal the squishier it gets. However I have the sense that the “best answer to date” lies not in profound and complex ponderings but in simplicity. so far my minds “skitter” off this problem. irrelevant to survival? dunno yet but eLG’s on it. it has just become relevant to dealing with the world. walt

The Morphing

Posted in Cosmos with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 15, 2010 by ellocogringo

Morph

So let’s look through this particular tunnel. The view of the tunnel the mama grizzly/soccer mom is looking through is perceived as society/individuals. These are the endpoints set by the tunnel. This particular tunnel limits them to an extremely squish view of the Great Mysterious. (different tunnel) and has a less squishy relationship to the view through the genetics tunnel, or the evolution tunnel.

So let the games begin. society/individual is inside the skull. SOCIETY/INDIVIDUAL is the projection of society/individual onto what we perceive. The duality if you will. If the universe is finite SOCIETY/INDIVIDUAL would be appropriate, which may or may not be true since the two cognitive minds can fully account for this duality. Else GREAT MYSTERIOUS would seem more appropriate. I suspect the latter.

So what’s happening here? Patterns are forming and correlated in the right mind, and interpreted by the left mind as disharmonious. The reticulator, summing the aggregate and accumulate dis-harmonies adds urgency (bias) The ANN (overseer) notes the two outputs are increasingly not consistent and is impelled to action. For sake of discussion we’ll call the right mind “sarah”, the left mind “palin”, the ANN “Sarah Palin”

So Sarah Palin morphs from a pit bull (individual) to a mama grizzly (resonant with other mama grizzlies) to effect change, realizing (squishy) that the aggregate and accumulate impact of mama grizzlies can “calm” the dis-harmonies. A built in feedback loop if you will, doing whatever minimizes the dis-harmonies. This is only for a mind uncrippled by ideology. The ABF has disabled this built in moderating function.

I’m not talking about evolution, or genetics or the cosmos. I am talking about mama grizzlies. That is the tunnel I was looking through.

So it would seem consciousness is an illusion

We only think we’re thinking.

Bankei

Posted in Cosmos with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 15, 2010 by ellocogringo

Bankei

Rinzai Zen Buddhist master, and the abbot of the Ryomon-ji and Nyoho-ji. Bankei is most well known for his talks on the Unborn as he called it.The Buddha mind incorporates both illumination and innocence. Or wisdom and naivete. Got this from allspirits which seems to sum it up.

“When we look back on this life, we see that when people are born, no one has thoughts of joy, sadness, hatred, or bitterness. Are we not in the state of the buddha mind bequeathed by our parents? It is after birth that intelligence develops, and people learn bad habits from others in the course of seeing and hearing them. As they grow up, their personal mental habits emerge, and they turn the buddha mind into a monster because of biased self-importance. “

Yup, that sums it up nicely. So, I still don’t know if it was an insult or a compliment. I suspect a compliment. I guess it’s quite rare, she said she had never met one. The concept seems common in Hindu thought, being the state to which one aspires, but never can fully achieve.

As for me, I don’t see it as a state of “enlightenment” but as normal, and other people as mentally crippled. They have lost the “wonder”, the ability to appreciate the glory of the world.

Or, maybe I’ve “lost the plot”, I am crazy, don’t you know?

As to “tying it all together” that’s relatively simple. I keep forgetting that what seems obvious to me can be obscure to others. I’ll connect the dots in a top down logic tree. Should be able to get it tonight.

You didn’t recall the incident of mr ted seeing the double brain fart (it was in the comments) so here it is again.
there are two compounding errors here; (a) the fake notion of a local entity that is capable of doing its own thing (male-ness), and (b) the attributing of the unfolding condition of space to the actions of fake local entities.

Exactly, the built in logic flaw in the brain. This guy is smart. It took me years to see that.

HSP

Posted in Healing with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 15, 2010 by ellocogringo

The characteristic of being HSP (Highly Sensative Person) is found in 15-20% of the population. Yup!  They are non-idiots

You are more aware than others of subtleties. This is mainly because your brain processes information and reflects on it more deeply. So even if you wear glasses, for example, you see more than others by noticing more. Yup! their minds haven’t been hijacked.

I’ve been reading through the browsings on the web, and conclude that the HSP fits comfortably within my view of normal.  HSP is is a post by Jutta on Mali Musings.   I can’t improve on that so I’ll just change the perspective a tad.  I feel that HSP (or normal) is the way man was created/evolved/unfolded to be.  They are normal, not the norm, but normal.  On the other hand people who are not HSP are sub-normal.  Not living to their full potential.  So we have this odd situation where 80-85% of the population is dysfunctional.  (the norm)  Neither view is superior, but merely personal preference.  If it floats your boat, set sail.  It is not you that is the problem, it’s everyone else.  Let’s put the fun back in dysfunctional.  You have been given a gift, enjoy unwrapping it.  Here’s the main website Elaine Aron

The Big Karuna

Karuna is incompletely translated as compassion. Compassion has overtones of pity, whereas karuna has overtones of oneness, connectedness. A deep love for all beings. kwan yin is one who “hears the cries of the world” More akin to the Greek agape.


Not to be confused with kama (lust) the KamaSutra (collection of such aphorisms in the form of a manual) then is a book on the physical act of love. Not even as noble as “making love” it is concerned only with sensual pleasures associated with sex. On this topic, it is interesting to note that mohammed wanted to translate the kama sutra into Arabic, a 180 degree switch in zeitgeist. I saw temples in India decorated like the one at left. I started counting the different positions and got lost somewhere around 100. Some of the positions looked like they’d hurt.

…………………………………………………………………..

Again I’m not going to wast time talking about quan ying. The thing I like most about her is that there is no right way to spell her name. What I didn’t like was the joss sticks. Almost like pepper spray. This is the temple at Penang, in malaya. It’s near the Genting Highlands where I used to go to play golf. This is a link to the Awana resort.. $70 bucks a night may seem steep but it’s a plush place, golf is free as are the activities. And it’s cool. When ready for bed they’ll come up, fluff the pillow and tuck you in. Kind of an embarassing decadence. Going to Malaya from Singapore is like going to Mexico from the US.

hi mr sid
Neuroscience is certainly on the right track, using bottom up, psychology to me borders on insanity ie the idea that you can reverse engineer something as indeterminate as the brain. each person is unique, and psychology sprinkles “pixie dust” on an emotional problem using counterfeit concepts like bipolar and psychosis to delude themselves in to believing they understand what is happening.

in re time, I have experience in geophysics and so am relating to it. whereas time as a left mind function which is an interpretation of the right mind perception of reality. If the analogy holds, the right mind operates in the frequency domain with reality being perceived as tensors (rotating vectors) twisting this tensor would give the tensor a phase shift which is interpreted as a situational time (how big is that lion) here i start speculating. if the analogy still holds the endoplasmic reticulator could provide the bias. (weighting) to account for the dilation and contraction of natural time. this then is the “hidden layer” spoken of in neuroscience.

the relationship of right/left mind correlates 100% with the frequency/time domains of seismic computing. (if you take quantification into consideration) I really believe a neuroscientist could learn a lot by talking to any geophysist. If they didn’t throw away phase shift (natural time), and used it instead of clocks (artificial time) the results would be much more accurate. But they confused artificial time for natural time. So the x/y graphic output would have an amplitude/phase axis instead of an amplitude/time axis.

Humans do the same thing.

I can’t speak to weighting (bias, endoplasmic reticulator) our computers didn’t deal in “maybe’s”

The Big Chill

The big chill

“The world in terms of spatial relational dynamics is never-ending so why rush? if you happen to step in there one day and really chill out you may never come back and reclaim your historical story-line. ” – Mr Ted

Hmm!  Yes, this was my fear, someday to step into this place and not come back.  Society is psychotic, maximized for the greed of the hyper-males.  Society is a trainwreck of miasma’s of hipostatized belief systems. 

In Greek mythology, a miasma is a contagious power that has an independent life of its own. Until purged by the sacrificial death of the wrongdoer, society would be chronically infected by catastrophe.
An example is Atreus who invited his brother Thyestes to a delicious stew containing the bodies of his own sons. A miasma contaminated the entire family of Atreus, where one violent crime led to another, providing fodder for many of the Greek heroic tales.
– wikipedia

With responsibility should come authority.  But it doesn’t. The individual has the responsibility, society has the authority.  Can’t anyone see how insane this is?  Society is maximized for the profit of the few and the anomie must be borne be the many.  No wonder so many people go postal.  The individual must bear the burden of the sins of society.  And society is a pressure cooker that keeps applying more pressure as society spins more out of control.  A positive feedback loop.

This type of social structure worked in the paleolithic.  We no longer live in the paleolithic, but we act as if we do.  People think of  “progress” as a gradual upward trend.  But it’s not.  It’s a sawtooth as societies gradually rise, then collapse as they spin out of control.  Always have, is now, and I fear always will.  This is the power ego mode of thinking we inherited.   In the paleolithic if the alpha male got to be too much of an asshole, no problemo, just kill him and let someone else take over, someone to whom this alphacide is in a time framework he can understand.  Despite the common belief, in primates it is usually the females who gang up on the alpha male.  But the hyper-males discovered civilization, a social structure that short-circuited the individuals ability to think for himself.

So it’s nice to chill out to relieve the pressure.

Just remember to come back

Time

Previosly I had posited the the minds were doing the equivalent of what I was doing in geophysical data processing. This view says that the right mind is perceiving reality in the frequency domain at the axon level. This perception is expressed as tensors, (rotating vectors) which are, in turn interpreted by the left mind as dimensions, color and time (and other things). This is exactly the same process used in data processing, in which input vibrations (time domain)are translated by a rastor box (Fourier Transform) into the frequency domain and back (inverse Fourier transform). But the 4th dimensional component is not actually thrown away, it is expressed as phase as an addendum (kludge) This happens because we can’t draw a four dimensional representation of anything on a piece of paper.

BUT, what if the wrong dimension was thrown away? I think that phase was interpreted as time. So that would lead me to believe that phase is a function of the reticular activator. Applying a “twist” to the vector, putting the rotate into the vector, making it a tensor. This would account for the situational nature of the right mind’s time. The weighting spoken of earlier, the intensity. So, in a sense, weighting IS the time of the right mind. (How big is that lion?) Which would speed up or slow down the variable nature of “natural” time. In other words, how fast the vector spins. Keep in mind that this is only a perception of reality, and not reality. Reality’s outside the skull. As to how, see

This is NOT thinking, but perception and interpretation. Thinking is handled at the dendrite level

Disjunct

Some people have a really strange view of the world. A disjunct from reality. A logic fail. For instance, people used to think the earth was flat, now they know it is round but they understand it to be square. Physicists know that the universe is of a wave nature, but still use calculus to try to figure it out, not understanding that calculus only works on Euclidian space. Society knows that we are part of this world, but continue to destroy it, not understanding that in destroying the world we are destroying ourselves. People know that we are part of the universe, but do not understand that the universe is within each of us. People know there is a god, yet rely on religion, not understanding that a little bit of god is within each of us. People know that government is corrupt, but do not understand that voting republican or democrat doesn’t make any difference. People know that money is fiat, but do not understand that it has no intrinsic value.

Knowledge and wisdom are on opposite sides of the coin of cognizance. The yang of the Tiger, balancing the yin of the Dragon. The dance of life. Without this dance there can be no feng shui. Chi fail.

Yup! Fucking sucks doesn’t it? Trail of tears bites big time. I’d like to step back and look at this from a broader perspective. We can’t get too maudlin, it serves no purpose. War is part of the human condition, probably always will be. I think of ant wars. The individual ants are like the individual in society. The good of the individual has been subsumed by the good of the society. In the case of ants, the activity is determined by pheromones. In the case of humans, ideology. But it’s the same thing. Mindless robots executing their programming. The question becomes, as supposedly intelligent beings, how do we rise above this programming? We’re heading for extinction if we don’t. Amerind, tamil, western, ALL. We no longer live in the paleolithic.

I intended to write about the cherokee nation. eLG thought I was missing the point. Needed to look at the big picture. Anybody know who the Aquitains are? I thought not. Even most Aquitains don’t. Cherokee got off lucky, they killed all the Aquitains, save one. A culture subsumed by a culture which was subsumed by yet another culture ad infinitum. There’s your wheels within wheels. Sometimes that’s the only choice there is, to die on your feet or live on your knees.

Consider the statue of the dying Gaul. He had just killed his wife and is about to kill himself. Romans respected that, and in fact glorified it. Doesn’t matter, they killed them all anyway. We are ALL survivors. None of us have a lock on rightousness. We have to get past this us/them mentality before we go extinct.

Ceaser’s really starting to get on my nerves.

“Gallia est omnis divisa in partes tres, quarum unam incolunt Belgae, aliam Aquitani, tertiam qui ipsorum lingua Celtae, nostra Galli appellantur ” – Ceasar

As to what happened, Amerinds (not all but some) picked the wrong side in the revolution. That is, they became conquered enemies rather than victorious allies. The diaspora would not have occured.

Chi The life force power of the universe. There are jillions  of cults, procedures, techniques. myths, legends etc. alluding to tapping into the power of the universe. Even the bible mentions it.It is telling that I consider this somewhat mundane.  I picked Reiki only because it has a cool graphic.  Here’s some links if you’re interested ReikiPage Laying on of hands ReikiFAQ

Pissing with the wind rather than into it.  If the plane’s flying backwards, reverse the pitch of the prop.  Mr Sid’s going with the flow.  Pulling up the anchor on Mr. Ted’s much beloved sailboat.  I view it as not so much increasing power, but reducing drag,  Removing impediments,  Getting the mind back to the state it was created/evolved/unfolded in.  Using both sides of the brain.  Or Mr M’s getting in the zone. Try to see the big picture.

Get down to the real nitty gritty.  You can’t take the dancer out of the dance.  The dancer and the dance are interactive, but there is more happening here.  More than choreography.  More than music. More than lighting.  If you take this apart, the resulting parts are trite.  Trivial. Meaningless.  In the WHOLE is more than all that.  It is what we used to call a happening.  It is a synergy of all the parts, from the individual molecules of the dancers to the universe which supplies the parts when stars explode. We are star people.  Understand the magnificence of what is going on.  The whole is greater than the sum of the parts.  Embrace the wonder of it all.  Have a happening

Removing Lattices and  Taboos.  Seeing the world in its interactive whole.  In short being normal.  Just recognizing that there are other ripples out there.  And acting accordingly.  The water’s fine. Jump in.  Unwrap your gift and enjoy.

The one I can relate most easily to, however in Mr Ted’s Hurricane.  Get the hell out of the way.  The same thing happened in 1968 with hurricane Bessie, and I got out of the way.  Went to Florida in fact.  I really don’t like hurricanes.

What is really happening is closer to the above graphic, not orbits but spirals.  Notice the wobble in the suns motion.

Which is caused by the sun going above and below the galactic plane. This the world our minds are optimized for

This is the world we live in.

At the other end we have the molecule

Which is composed of atoms

Which really looks kinda like this

Which locks into a matrix like this, unfolding and refolding

to form a human female

Perceived as this

Twisted in the left mind to change from becoming to being

which is the real center of the copernican universe.  Gotta stick to what’s important and not get distracted by things like science and religion.

and, of course, They will continue interlocking to build up the atmosphere from which Mr Ted,s hurricane will form and eventually the universe.  To form the big hoochie koochie, the sum of all the little hoochie koochies.

Iteration

The non-iteration nation

Mr Johnny got me thinking about circular reasoning. He used the word iterative. I like that. I did a search on circular thinking and came up with two totally different, mutual exclusive meanings. One that of the “science” of logic. which describes it as pathological. This view is total bullshit. The other view is diffuse, depending on circumstances. I will call this iterative.

Consider the following concepts, do not analyze them, that strips the meaning out. Just consider them. They all describe the same concept from different perspectives and different words are used.

According to circular thinking, it’s less useful to worry about how problems got started than to see them as reciprocal patterns of interaction, which can be corrected in the present, regardless of what happened in the past – parenting

It is not necessary that you hear and identify the notes you play, but rather that you play the right note written in the music at the right time.- music

You Cannot just “Name it and Claim it” you Need to know How the System Works – bible study

These patterns are examined to show whether certain patterns are viewed with positive or negative associations – hand signing

Assumptions can take you round and round and leave you where you started. To break out of circular thinking, we need real alternatives to our assumptions -turnarounds

If the plane’s flying backwards, reverse the pitch of the prop – eLG

People think backwards – Dennett

Ya gotta work the logic both ways – eLG

Consider “we eat sugar because it tastes good”, sounds reasonable. rational in fact, top down, serial, plug in whichever term you prefer. An Aristotelian view.

Now let’s work the logic both ways. “sugar tastes good because we eat it” totally irrational. That’s true, a null A view. But let’s assume that it is valid if irrational. Then we see that sugar is a good source of energy. Our brains became wired to give a pleasurable sensation when we eat sugar. That’s because we’re omnivores. Sugar has no taste to carnivores. Charlie Chimp had rotten fruit in his diet. We gained this insight by applying bottom up logic to the top down statement.

So, I posit that circular reasoning occurs in the left mind, which accepts no new data. mental masturbation. Round and round we go. Iterative thinking occurs in the right mind, which aggressively accumulates and correlates new data. So the right mind iterates, i.e. resolves an issue, sets the “shortcut” on the right algorithm, then goes around again to reassess the unresolved data using the new “shortcut” as an assumption. This process repeats until all the issues are resolved. An upticking of wisdom, to be stored as knowledge. The iterim results are set as a “shortcut” on the left algorithm as “best answer to date” If this function is shut down, the person is an idiot (in the clinical sense) incapable of innovation. Unfortunately, the majority of western civilization.

Consider the cash register, we press the 1 key and the + key and the 1 key and =. the answer pops up as 2. So we assume that pressing these keys in this sequence “proves” that 1+1=2. If we work the logic both ways we see that the leaf that pops up that says 2 is dependent on which keys are pressed. It doesn’t matter what is printed on the keys or leaf. This “proof” is an artifact.

The Aristotelian brain fart. A traffic circle with no roads in or out. A freeway with no on or off ramps. Round and round we go, and where we stop everyone knows. We’ve got a hurricane blowing through the windmills of our minds. Damn it ted, you’ve infected my thinking, somehow a post just doesn’t seem complete without a hurricane in it somewhere.

The animation at the top is really good for what I’m trying to describe. There’s an animation for your “abductive engine” Mr Johnny. That’s the way it works. Damn, that ouija pusher sure scoots around, doesn’t it?

“We are all ‘star seeds’, or ‘star people’ as we all have lived in many realities in many planetary systems and in higher realms as other life forms. So here we are, star seeds, souls sparks on a mission, trapped for NOW in a physical experience. Starseeds allegedly seed planets with information and spiritual frequency when one cycle of time is about to end and another begin. As planetary frequency increases, so too does their levels of awareness, and need to help others, and return to their natural state of being, a soul spark of light.

The number of people who currently fit the profile of Star Children – or those who are evolving – has risen greatly since Brad wrote his book.
Brad spoke of the term “Star People” and its link to Native American beliefs in our creation

Forgotten God

As anyone following me knows, I am aware of two cognitive minds, and no one else is. So either I’m crazy or every one else is. If you feel I’m crazy you can take comfort in the knowledge you are running with the squirrls. I am fascinated by thinking, or specifically thinking about thinking and the effects of this dual mind we have on the thought process. Certain concepts resonate with me, the feminine god for one. This is to be a never ending post, as I continue to explore, feeding my hungry neurons. I will put these in a new catagory called Forgotten.

Road Not Taken

The first of these resonances is “The Road Not Taken”, a science fiction story in the mid 80’s. It opens with the Roxilian commander of a spaceship bound on intergalatic conquest. He sights out the quartz porthole and adjusts his course with a quadrant. He hopes for a new planet to conquer soon, the stench in the ship is overwhelming. The slopjars are overflowing, the animals have all been eaten, and the plants used to supply the oxygen have all been burned to hold off the cold of interstellar space. They’re running low on musket balls and the black powder is damp and misfires. All of the steeds have since died, but he is certain that their superior technology will allow them to prevail. The entire story is told from the point of view of the Roxilians. These beings are savages, this is a stone age culture with space travel. WTF? to make the story short, they land on the front lawn of the white house and the entire invasion force is blown away by the two dozen secret service agents in half an hour or so. What has happened is that it is humans that have taken the road less traveled. Space travel, time travel, teleportation etc. are relatively simple concepts discovered by most civilizations in a universe teeming with intelligence. Their progress has stopped because they were unable to analyze but thought only in a “right mind” mode.
Fascinating! Road not taken

Brain in a Box

Posted in The Minds with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on July 25, 2010 by ellocogringo

 

Hmm…Never thought of it in those terms, but I’ll give it a shot. I’ll use my terms. Let’s put the brain in a box. It has three holes, (we’ll skip smell me for the moment) labeled feel me, hear me, see me. We’ll put a wheel in front of the box. We reach out the feel me hole and discover the wheel. Nothing out of the hear me hole but we can visualize it out of the see me hole. Hmmm… lets put a dot on the circumference of this wheel and start spinning it. At about 20 HZ we can detect something out of the hear me hole. Let’s run this up to about 600 HZ. There we go, a nice solid hmmmm. (do on the musical scale) If we track the dot while rolling the wheel along a time scale we can see a sine wave and can invent trigonometry. This is the basis upon which the “scientific method” is based. Any data or logic that does not fit this framework is discarded. BUT, by applying appropriate logic to relevant data we come to the obvious conclusion that the universe is composed of vibrations, not matter. Standing wave is as good a word as any, I use “temporal river”, Plato used ether. Einstein used continuum. No matter, as the math is not the physics, the word is not the concept. Whichever you choose to use, something is doing the hootchie cootchie out there, and it’s not matter. All you can say about it (from an empirical point of view) is that it is vibrations having a circular or rotational component with a beat of 8 and is negentropic.

So what is really happening? The right hemisphere receives the data in the frequency domain. Go here for a visualization. He only goes to fa, but it’s good enough.

this is the perception of the vibrations. The left hemisphere does an interpretation of this and generates a tone. (do in this case) This tone is then quantified to form the sine wave. So we are left with a quantification of an interpretation of a perception which is accepted as reality. Scientists, mathematicians and physicists routinely use the Fourier transform to translate the time domain into the (imaginary) frequency domain, obtain the answer, and translate back. It seems the answers exist in the frequency domain that do not exist in the time domain. HOW CAN THIS HAPPEN? How can an imaginary domain contain more information than the real domain? It is like a map of Chicago containing more information that the actual city. It is oximoronic (heavy on the moron) The only conclusion that can be drawn is that reality is in the frequency domain, IE vector + amplitude IE vibrations. The time domain is imaginary, the frequency domain is reality. Not only are they on the wrong page, they’re in the wrong book.

Sajani Shakya – Child Goddess

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

The Kumari, or virgin deity, is a Hindu cult practised in Nepal, and represents the reincarnation of Dea Taleju Bhawani, also known in India as Durga. The Kumari are chosen among the Buddhist children of the Newar Shakya caste, resident in Kathmandu for at least three generations; the cast is the same one to which Buddha belonged. Even if chosen among Buddhists they are equally venerated by Hindus. During her annual feast, Kumari Jiatra, she is permitted to go out in public in a covered carriage.

They are born mortal humans, members of the lower castes, but are then elevated to the realms of the living deities; forced to live in isolation from early childhood, without friends and deprived of an education, on their first menstruation or sign of illness they return human once more, have to drastically adapt themselves to the difficulties of everyday life. They are the Kumari, Hinduism’s living deities, who are now beginning to rebel against the “inhuman superstitions” who in Nepal, are forced to live a lonely single life, deprived of affection in the belief that anyone who marries them will die within a few months.

 

 

Isopata

This post is a placekeeper I use as a memopad to resources. It is not complete, nor will it ever be. As I find interesting stuff in regard to the re-emergence of the devine feminine, I will upload them to divshare and provide downloadable links at the bottom. Isopata is a good place to start.

Comentary I see some really disturbing trends in society. In the ’70’s Feminism was an egalitarian movement. It has turned vicious and society is deteriorating rapidly. Consider Islam, what started as an egalitarian inclusive progressive society has been hijacked by wingnuts and we are left with an oppressive society, psychotic in nature. ApocolypseSoon or ReturnToBalance The choice is yours or you can buy your burkas girls.
Isopata – the seal The double Ax was the symbol of the Snake Priestess. The Snake Priestess of Minoan Crete were the keepers of the Goddess’s Double Ax. The Hall of the Double Ax is one of the most complete Goddess worship sites ever discovered. Thousands of devotees would gather there to do the spiral dance.
