(1949) is a book by the philosopher Gilbert Ryle. In it, he describes what he saw as a “fundamental mistake” made by Descartesdualism, which underlies much of western philosophy. In the work, Ryle coined the phrase, “the dogma of the ghost in the machine,” to refer to Descartes’ model.

The fundamental error, according to Ryle, is a category mistake made when philosophers talk about mind and matter as if they were, “… terms of the same logical type.” Ryle claims that while it makes sense to talk about mental processes and events, that the

“… phrase ‘there occur mental processes’ does not mean the same sort of thing as ‘there occur physical processes,’ and, therefore, that it makes no sense to conjoin or disjoin the two.”

For Ryle, Cartesian dualism mistakenly assumes it is sensible to ask of a given cause, process, or event, whether it is mental or physical (with the implication that it cannot be both). ConceptOfMind

Time is central to holding together the power mode of ego. Yet…..what, exactly, does a clock measure? Nothing. It is an artificial structuring of the natural ebb and flow of the universe. In and of itself, that’s ok. It alows the synchronization of activities for maximum effect. BUT…………..we forget that “time” isn’t linear in reality, nor is it circular as the amerind worldview. It is fluid, depends on our experiencing of the universe. The universe just is, and is not required to adhere to our artificial attempts to control it, whether linear or circular.

I recently became interested in the aboriginal framework of reasoning. I have heard it described as circular reasoning.
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 a 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.

Occidental’s dominate thought mode is top down (left mind) Orientals dominate thought mode is bottom up (right mind) time to the right mind appears to be situational. Orientals have the same problem (mirrored) that we have in the west. IE whereas we have difficulty with connectness (bottom up), they have problems with analysis. (top down). In general this seems to be a determining factor in civilization, ie one or the other minds must be shut down to turn the populace into robots. This difference is illustrated by the response to communists in Singapore. They didn’t understand the war. “a thousand years from now no one will even know who the communists were” That’s a little too much connectedness to my way of thinking.

While circular time is certainly closer to reality than linear time. It is not reality. Reality, and reality only, is reality.

This imprinting is canabilastic in nature, like the zombie, it want’s to eat your brains. It is the Ayn Rand Beast.

“You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars, you have a right to be here”. – Max Ehrmann
Whisper.pdf

Centering involves more than emotional balance, it requires a harmony between mind, body, soul, environment and emotion. All elements must be addressed simultaneously. Toxicity must be removed. Health problems, in and of themselves cause emotional problems. Medication to treat them cause more problems.

You cannot aspire to emotional serenity while your health is keeping you mired in the mud. There is no quick fix, it requires resolve.”I’m going to do this thing”. Recognize gluttony for what it is. If you are overweight, lose it. Skip the scales, use the panty drop test, if your panties hit the floor, you’re heading in the right direction. Skip the diets, it’s not nice to fool mother nature. If it tastes good don’t eat it. Go hungry, your stomach will shrink to reflect the new reality. Check with the doctor to ensure proper nutrition. You’ll get your payback when you have to buy new panties.

Recognize sloth for what it is, take walks in the park and enjoy the beauty of nature. Recognize insecurity for what it is. Surround yourself with people who make you feel good. Recognize medication for what it is, usually a way to resolve symptoms that allow you to continue an unhealthy lifestyle in an unhealthy environment. Check with your doctor for non-medical solutions. Else, accept it. Recognize shame for what it is, we have been brainwashed into thinking pride is a sin.

The universe is incomplete without you. And above all, do not allow someone else to occupy rent free space in your mind. Do not allow anyone to hijack your goal of becoming who you are supposed to be, they are trying to pollute your mind.

Learn to bypass the canned answers you got in school and seek your own truth.

Love hard, laugh hearty and sleep well. Pursue a purpose greater than yourself. Be more than you can be. Accept yourself as you are.

Log on to Sid Here for more resources. Sid Here Website

You can do this thing.

 

Keep in mind that the mind is a system within a system. Picture rubber bands attached to all of the elements of this system. If you move one element and release the pressure, it will snap back. Thus if you live in a toxic environment and try to become centered, you will keep snapping back to where you were. You must cut this rubber band to succeed.
You have been given a gift. Enjoy unwrapping it.

American Gods

Posted in Lost Gods with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 27, 2010 by ellocogringo

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

The Rose

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 way to go

Posted in Healing with tags , , , , , , on September 22, 2010 by ellocogringo

Listening to NPR (no I’m not a long hair, communist, pinko, non-coagulating bleeding heart liberal) but this was good nonetheless. The story was of a woman who’s father was in a hospice care facility. He had been languishing for months. Reading the paper to him, she mentioned a jazz concert being held that night. His eyes lit up. He loved jazz, particularly this group. “Do you want to go?” popped out. “Yes!” She dressed him, put makeup on to hide his palor, she wheeled him out of the hospice, past the protests of the attendents who said it would kill him. At the concert hall it was sold out. She banged on the door till someone came, explained the situation and they wheeled him backstage where he got to meet the band. It was the first time she had seen him happy in months. He died somewhere towards the end of the show. He was smiling. Like dying on your feet rather than living on your knees. Good on ya, gal, good on ya.

“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

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.

Do Over

“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.”

Reincarnation at it’s most basic level, is a scientific fact. The stars coalesce out of the primordial dust to form stars which collapse after their fuel is exausted to either explode spreading more primordial dust or turn into black holes which remanifest themselves as white holes (stars) somewhere else in the universe unfolding more dust from which we are made. This dust is God’s dirt, from which all is made. We are literally “star people” Every atom in our bodies comes from the interior of a star. So the idea of reincarnation is far from meta-physical bullshit. If the recursive and fractal (same thing, two different perspectives) nature of the universe, and everything for that matter, is taken into account, it is not inconsistent that at different scales this same cycling occurs. If we took a sidereal view of the universe we would see a flux of unfolding and refolding wave concentrations. Hmm! Not only could be, but probably true.

There are so many sites, and so well done that I can’t expand on them. So here’s a few

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.

Top Down vs Bottom up thinking
George is right, kind of. But he still speaks of either/or rather than a synergistic both.

“Knowledge is not a Thing but a Relation” – George Kampis

A little bit about what are we going to do.

The Carteisan view suggests that knowledge is an entity.
The Anti-Cartesian view suggests that knowledge is NOT an entity.

Two concepts:
methodological individualism methodological anti-individualism

the indivudal is ~isolated the individual does not end at the surface of skin
complete incomplete

Anti-individualism often also called “externalism”. Physical or social reality is PART of human mind.
E.g. linguistic meaning is in the interaction of use; no meaning or represented knowledge possible in single individual.

Seemingly difficult concepts, but easy to understand in relational terms.

The Cartesian concept of the mind and knowledge suggests a detached view of knowledge.
Mostly the passive aspects of cognition (mental content, representation – note the word content)

The network view suggests an immersed concept of knowledge.
Typical for human societies in the past, more dynamic and interactive, person-based.

detached immersed

extractred situational
decontextualized contextual
distant “being there”
absolute relative

“I’m a dying old man, and I’m afraid of the dark” – John Wayne, The Shootist

Dancing with death

My observations when the asshole PA triggered a HOCM attack was a feeling of viewing the events in the third person and anger bordering on rage. My consciousness (ANN) pulled back, making an objective, objective (not a repeat) evaluation of the situation. (the caretaker referred to in MPD?) JBT reported the same thing. The ever curious eLG becomes hungry. Tentatively, the reticulator is an intensity amplifier, the aggregate and accumulate weighting applied to the cognitive process. Simply put, when the oxygen level in my brain decreased the reticulator cranked up the amplitude, “whatever is happening, this shit is serious, do something NOW.” I did. Viewed in this context my actions, calling the PA an asshole and storming out, were perfectly rational. I did the right thing and probably saved my life. The anger was essential to saving my life, impelling me to do “whatever it took” to get me out of a hazardous situation. eLG exploded, overiding societal constraints. The ANN stands. Not a crazy reaction but a sane reaction to a crazy situation.
A good definition of anger would be “you are being screwed”, directed inwards. Depression as “you have allowed yourself to be screwed” or as Jung stated “depression is anger without the enthusiasm”
Oddly, I ran across Dr. Dart again in my research. (AspertaSupra) He’s Romanian, not italian. In view of my previous hits, he (she?) evidently is writing papers concerning the reticulator and epigenetics. Possibly the reticulator is the activating mechanism???? I’ve got to get a translation of his papers or get it translated. eLG continues to feed. The following are preliminary entry points, although I’ll have to wade through a bunch of meta-physical bullshit to find out what’s happening.
Or I could be full of shit, I am crazy, don’t you know?

Another form of spontaneous OBE is the near death experience (NDE). Some subjects report having had an OBE at times of severe physical trauma such as near-drownings or major surgery. In the case of motor vehicle accidents, they are able to recall the accident as if observing it from a location outside the vehicle. – Wikipedia

Functional model of a normal brain
Plato’s Mobile


The purpose of this Blog is to propose a working model of the mind that accommodates both top down thinking (scientific method) and bottom up thinking (yoga) There will be no citations or references, this model being based entirely upon empirical reasoning and observation. Man has a unique brain, we have two cognitive minds, independent yet interconnected, and synchronous in nature. The left mind uses top down thinking in a binary network. IE true/false. This is the Aristotelian view of the world we are all familiar with. This is what distinguishes us from animals. It interprets the input of the right mind into terms that can be quantified and made more useful. (sound, time, color etc.) It is the “individuation”. It is dominant. It operates in the time domain. The right mind uses bottom up thinking in a weighted Boolean network. Possible results can be true/false/both/neither modulated by aggregate or accumulate input. This is the way an animal thinks. There is only now. This is the “connectedness”. This is the source of insight, creativity, “thinking outside the box”. It is sub-dominant. It operates in the frequency domain. Monitoring and regulating the synchronicity is the ANN (allocated neural network), wetware dedicated to comparing the results of the calculations performed by the left and right minds and flagging discrepancies by setting trigger points on the algorithms, a decision tree on each mind. This algorithm is what a psychologist would call a personality. Thus we have 3 ways of dealing with the world, dominant (left mind, skeptical) sub-dominate (right mind, receptive) and combined (“we’ll see”). This is no more complicated than putting on your doctor hat when you go to work, your wife/husband hat when at home, and your “we’ll see” hat in public. The remainder of the brain is the unANN dedicated to memory, dreaming, collating etc. Yoga (see footnote 1) is a framework that is useful for accessing this area. Rather like a neuron trellis. It can bypass the constraints imposed by the left mind to directly access all experience, the universe, as perceived by the individual. This is nirvana. Any thinking about the mind must start with the neuron. Simply put, the brain is a self programming amorphous mass of neurons. It is in the nature of the neuron to seek out, connect and communicate. Thus each mind is unique, as indeterminate as it is possible to get. Psychologists are trapped into trying to describe an indeterminate problem with logic suitable only for a determinate problem.

“The mind is elegant in it’s simplicity, incomprehensible in it’s scale, and glorious in it’s implementation.” el Loco Gringo

I use the term yoga as a generic term for various meditative techniques used to access the right hemisphere directly.

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.

Star Wars Episode I Phantom menance. I have heard my ANN model compared to centered with both pipelines going. The Star Wars jet pod racer comes to mind. Not unlike my chariot model with the matched team. The full statement was “how do we get to this state, centered with both pipelines going? This is more about what it ain’t than what it is. You don’t cripple the pipelines with ideology. Don’t put governors on the pods, don’t hobble the horses.

To keep from getting confused, I’ll name these two pods finesse and power.

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”?

blind spot

Posted in Travel with tags , , , , , , on September 11, 2010 by ellocogringo

Blind Spot

The human eye has a blind spot where the optic nerve goes back into your brain. You normally don’t notice it because your other eye and brain compensate to fill in the missing information. The brain can also be confused by the above image. It is static, but your brain interprets it as moving. ScotomaIn like manner the mind has a logical blind spot. You can be looking right at something and not see it. And like the optical blind spot the minds “fill in the blanks” so that the picture seems complete. Everyone has these “blind spots”, depends on imprinting. A person with an aboriginal world view will have a blind spot  in conceptualizing my european worldview. My blind spot is in conceptualizing the aboriginal world view. The crucial point is that I know I have this blind spot, he doesn’t.  OrangesVerbese essays with myriad authorative quotes only obfuscate the issue. The issue being that the mind’s logical processes are fundamentally flawed. It is crucial that homo sapiens understand this or we will become homo extinctus. There is, however, one blind spot I do NOT have. One that afflicts 99.953% of the population. (heyleighn estimate) This blindspot is the failure to recognize the slogan on the top of the page. i.e. the overwhelming majority of people think and act as if there were a single cognitive operation going on inside the skull, convoluted, contradictory, complex and twisted. Ain’t so. There are two relative simple processes going on. I have met 3 in my lifetime. I know of a few others. Plato was one. A credible contemporary one is Jill Bolte Taylor. Be sure to watch “stroke of insight” at the bottom ChrysalisThese people must be found, nurtured and protected. Their insight is desperately needed. This is the most important issue facing mankind today. And I don’t know what to do about it. There’s things we know

Things we know we don’t know

Things we don’t know we don’t know

And things we know that ain’t so

That last one will bite you in the ass

>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.

Typical Thinking

Posted in Society with tags , , , , on September 7, 2010 by ellocogringo

Typical

Archetype in Greek and meant “original”

Stereotype in Greek meant “firm model”.

Archetype is an open-ended template ONTO which we build stories. It is a starting point.

So an archetypical thinker is one who’s imprinting allows for new concepts, he can think for himself. The imprinting provides a foundation for developing new and innovative concepts. He is centered. Makes a good genius.

Stereotype is a closed-ended template INTO which we reduce stories. It is a finishing point.

So a sterotypical thinker is one who’s imprinting limits new concepts, he cannot think for himself. The imprinting imposes a limit past which he cannot go. He is an idiot. Cookie cutter. Makes a good slave.

No matter how you slice and dice this, it still comes out to an 80/20 mix between idiot/centered. Whereas a centered can strike out in new directions and is individualistic, the idiot moves “en masse”, a choreographed dance of dumb.

Ouija

Posted in Cosmos with tags , , on September 3, 2010 by ellocogringo

Ouija

I’ve heard bottom up thinking described as using a ouija board. Every time you put the hand on the pusher it seems to have a mind of it’s own and scoots all over the place. Makes sense. The right mind is not ordered in a linear fashion but by weighting. i.e. the most significant issue gets resolved, then the next and on and on until a best answer to date is obtained. This function of ordering of the corelated results would seem to be handled by the reticulator. To an idiot this appears to be a random incoherant rambling, flitting from topic to topic with no apparant relationship. This is, in fact, the bottom up thinking method (musing) in operation. ALL possibilities are considered, even if irrelevant. The priorities are ordered in the manner of “best answer to date”, “this seems to work for the moment”, “could be” and “no way” although not so clearly defined. Until these concepts are communicated to a sentient person (non-idiot) they may never be resolved. And, as each mind is unique, what is relevant to one may not be relevant to another. What this means is that it is almost impossible for the logic trees of two individuals to agree, although the outputs may be identical.

It is entirely possible that in the hands of centered, there may be something to this, working through a collective consciousness. Online versions have got to be bullshit, but the fact that it is banned by christians and debunked by science gives it a certain credibility. However this credibility is undermined by a psychological explanation. The juries still out.

Mainstream Christian religions and some occultists have associated use of the Ouija board with the threat of demonic possession and some have cautioned their followers not to use Ouija boards.[3]

While Ouija believers feel the paranormal or supernatural is responsible for Ouija’s action, it may be more parsimoniously explained by unconscious movements of those controlling the pointer, a psychological phenomenon known as the ideomotor effect.Despite being debunked by the efforts of the scientific community, Ouija remains popular among many young people.

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

Psyche

Posted in Godesses with tags , , , , on August 27, 2010 by ellocogringo

Those of you who have been following me know that I am exploring the tie between loss of the ability to connect with the right mind and the anomie of man and “hole in the soul of the individual. The emptiness inside leaving an aching need that is quickly filled by various ideologies which rob us of our sense of oneness with the universe. In western civilization this theft was first perpetrated by religion and then by education, sometimes backing up the religion. In the case of religion it is to ensure that the peasants be forced to go through the church so as to enrich the church. In the case of education it is to ensure a compliant work force so as to enrich the capitalists. The church enforced harmony by burning heretics at the stake, or in the case of heathens, shoving said stake up the heart of their bottom. Essentially, experiencing God for yourself (in a manner that didn’t enrich the church) was punishable by death. The role of asshole/idiot (used in the clinical sense) appears to be inherent in western civilization. This inability to access the right mind directly is responsible for the disfunction in society, on both an individual and collective level. And psyche, bless her heart, was another path to enlightenment. A neuron trellis. Does anyone (besides idiots) think this society is sane?

Ironically psyche is the root word for psychology, which seems to be dedicated to destroying the psyche, shooting the heretic up with smarticide. (at least they don’t shove a pole up your butt, that’s progress of a sort I suppose.) Psychology is the Inquisition of western civilization. My, aren’t these charming fellows?

Excellent post here Hannibal >Psyche

But the monomyth theory, which dates back to Jung and regards archetypes as “collective dreams”, sees in Psyche’s story universals:

  • the human journey toward self-awareness,
  • our yearning to unify sex and love, body and soul, individual and family,
  • our striving for harmony.

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.

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

……………………………………………………………….
Ecclesiastes

What? eLG quoting the bible? Well, yes, the council of Nicea didn’t manage to redact all wisdom. Maybe they figured that with the mind crippled the unwashed masses would be unable to know when to turn
………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

Diane Benscoter has an interesting take on centering. She views memes as a viral self replicating mental infection which will spread to people whose self confidence immune system has failed.
……………………………………………………………………………………………………………..


The yin/yang symbol is a metaphor for the constant dance between the masculine and feminine energies within each one of us. Taiji is the balance of these forces. Balance allows this dance to take place. The taboo prevents it
…………………………………………………………………………………………..

Yin is the feminine energy, the intuitive, receptive, nurturing side of ourselves that is in connection with the Divine. Yin is the energy that yields to the forces around it, flowing, and smooth — the force that allows a seed to germinate in winter and makes water flow smoothly around a stone in the creek.
……………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Yang is the masculine energy — the strong, action-oriented, forceful side of ourselves that gets things accomplished. Yang is the force that makes a seed sprout in the spring and makes strong flowing water move or sculpt the stones in a creek.

…………………………………………………………………………………………
So the council of Nicea has turned the yin/yang minds God gave us into a yang/yang mind preventing us from experiencing god for ourselves. It also prevents physcists from seeing that the universe is of a wave nature.

Wanna

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

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.

The G word

“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.

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.

I’ve resent one of your comments and a comment Sid put on the ANN. Different analogy but the same perspective. (it seems to me)

You’re quite right about adjusting your perspective. It is this “My way or highway” attitude in mainstream physics that prevents an understanding of the nature of the universe. There are some things happening inside the skull that affect the understanding. Your interest is outside the skull. Good, I prefer to leave physics and math to people who are interested in such things. Simply put, there is an unseen and unconsidered interface inside the skull which effects thinking. Consider Plato’s TOE. His logic is impeccable but his data is incomplete. He extrapolates his TOE from the 5 platonic solids. Grab the saddle horn here, your mind’s going to start bucking. My interest and question is WHY has he omitted the most basic and fundamental of the solids, the sphere. My interest is why are so many people stupid? His mind rejected the most obvious of all the solids. As for me, I can’t understand why everyone can’t see the vibrational nature of the universe. It is so obvious. Why does 99+% of physicists say the know the universe is vibrational in nature (or waves or compaction, or reflections (whatever, the word is not the concept) but they don’t act like it. Why are they so stupid, intelligent maybe, but stupid none the less. WHY, WHY, WHY? They continue to play silly mind games with the two slot experiment, the measurement problem, (what I call the whereness and whenness of the electron) the decay problem etc. My interest is not in the nature of the universe, per se, but WHY ISN’T IT OBVIOUS TO EVERYONE, not just physicists? Try to brush the crazy aside, I have the fear that if I start talking like an idiot, I’ll start thinking like one. (maybe stupid’s catching) ALL conventional wisdom is WRONG. (only dead fish go with the flow) People think backwards. Saddle up and let’s ride off into epiphany valley.

My brain is trapped inside my skull, the only input being through imperfect and filtered senses. Something out there is doing the shimmy-shake. I call it the big hoochie-koochie there’s a visualization link below. Be sure to play the accompaning audio to catch the harmonics. So these vibrations come into my right mind and are perceived as rotating vectors. This is not reality, this is only a perception. This is what an animal perceives. There is no time, no color, no sound, just the rotating vectors. Actions are based not on discrete data, but on patterns in the vibrations. This is a weighted boolean network. Very complicated and cumbersome. The left mind reaches into this chaos (in both senses of the word), throws away a dimension and begins collating, matching, organizing etc. so as to present it in a form more useful in the decision making process (unless, of course, you’re trying to figure out the nature of the universe) This is a binary network This is an interpretation. OK, lets tie up here for a moment and think this through. Let’s make it simple. The big hootchie-koochie is doing something out there that that is perceived as a single rotating vector by the right mind. The left mind interprets this as a harmonic tone, as we add vectors to the perception we find that this tone has a beat of 8. (do, re, me, so, fa, la, ti, do) ie recursive, with an element of 8. (I’m not sure I’m using the right words, the words don’t exist, try to stick with the concept. “the word is not the concept”) Now lets take the results of this interpretation back outside the skull. An idiot physicist starts plotting the output data against an artificial domain called time on a piece of paper. This makes a sine wave. He then uses this sine wave to figure out what the big hoochie-koochie is doing. But it ain’t real. It’s just a friggin’ piece of paper. But he thinks it’s real. WHY? Time to get the horses back to the corral and rub them down. We’ve been riding them pretty hard and they’re getting sweaty. (one page limit)
Big hoochie-koochie> http://ellocogringo.wordpress.com/the-x-files/big-hoochie-koochie/

Walt,I like your concept of top down(conscious)and bottom up(subconscious)!
Could it be that similar to physical gravity there is also a psychological gravity(suppression) with the left brain pulling down and if too heavy because of excessive social conditioning prevents the right brain to freely rise up?…and so preventing a harmonious integration between both sides of the brain.
Is yoga simply a technique to remove the weight of the left brain liberating the en-lightened right brain to be fullv aware ?

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

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.  

 

Star Seed

“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. There is little connection to the mainstream systems of society, religious, political or economic. Creativity is the key to spiritual fulfillment and mission.”ChrystalLinks

Star People By Brad SteigerBrad told me that when he had compiled this list of attributes of “Star People” he had no idea how many people would be affected by it. 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

Atenolol Dreams

I have a genetic condition called HOCM. In simplist terms, if my heart rate goes too high, I die. So I take atenolol to keep that from happening. When I started taking it I began having lucid dreams. Full color sight sound, indistinguishable from reality, except I knew I was dreaming. I just love chatting with debt collectors. They get so frustrated when I keep changing the subject and ask about their kids, weather etc. One particularily obnoxious one gave up. After a couple of weeks, I called him back, “what’s the matter, Bob. you pissed off at me? and started chatting again. The second time he threatened “don’t you EVER call back here again”. The third time he put a block on me. I like to put the fun back in disfunctional.

Another encounter I had was with American Express. L Ron Hubbard referred to them as American Distress. I referred to the lien holder (homecomings) as shortcomings and the second holder (beneficial) as superficial, he didn’t like that either. I’ll have to do something on him. Back to American Distress. when I was in S’pore I used the American Distress card for my travels. When I returned to Houston, I began getting bills from AD for rather modest sums for William N Gremillion (I’m Walter J Gremillion) Actually my wife got them, AD was a company card and the bills went directly to Petty Ray. I didn’t even know how much they were, but it must have been several thousand a month. I first became aware of it when my wife, livid with rage, came storming into my office with one of these bills, which had a dinner for two at Steak’n’Ale and a motel bill the same night at Royal Coacn Inn, both of which were near the office and close to my apartment. Went to see Melody, (what a neat name, nicknamed Squirm, (her brother used to tickle her when she was a kid, I’ll have to do something on what happened to her in Chad) She pulled the records and pointed out that on the date in question I was in Pakistan. The company lawyer told me to tell em to get fucked, in writing, and bring it to a head. The court was in Austin, William showed up. The AD attorney came up and asked “is all that happened is they got your records mixed up?” In any case, the judge was reading the AD attorney the riot act as we were walking out.

Bill collectors need all the love you can give them while calling “them” at home.

Has anyone noticed that when you overdraw your account the bank wants more of what they know you ain’t got none of?

I bet you wonder what this has to do with forgotten gods? Well, the dreams formed a story, one part of which involved an alien race that had the same brain fart alluded to in “the road not taken” I’ve started another website and have started uploading these dreams. I encounter the aliens (in the dream) on a planet named Chloe, (French for meadow, a common word in Louisiana). Atenolol Dreams
