“Education put the sub in subconscious” – el Loco Gringo

When considering what is happening in the mind, it is necessary to consider everything that is happening to the mind which is everything. I have tried to organize this into some kind of order. In general, start with overview> prologue and keep hitting the next after going through the links at the bottom of the page, in order. Things don’t fit neatly into baskets, like the scientific method would have you believe. Red links are external, close window to return. Blue links are internal, hit back arrow to return.

This link is essential to understanding what is going on inside the skull. Basically the brain is a self programming amorphous mass of neurons. (at least a rat brain)

RatBrain

This is as close to a summary as I’m going to get. The major premise of this paper is; “The mind does not need to be “enhanced” so much as be un-crippled and returned to it’s natural state”. The minor premise is; “the mind can be “un-locked” from the cage imposed by society, ideology, religion, education, upbringing etc”. The conclusion is; “We can become who we are supposed to be and not who someone else wants us to be”. The paper is presented in random order (that is. after all, the way we “think”) If the topic seems to be drivel, or too complex, just skip it for the moment. (you’ll be back). many of the topics are only cursorily mentioned, (They’ve been so done). TM, self-help, spirituality, whole brain, synergy are only pieces of the puzzle.

The present psychological view of the mind is one of the chief impediments to understanding the mind. Discard it in it’s entirety. It is Paleolithic in nature. Almost everything in this paper is counter-intuitive and un-scientific. Sorry, the scientific method does not work on an indeterminate problem. Applying the scientific method to an indeterminate problem yields the nonsense of psychology. Once you can see the blue sky, turn your thoughts inward and ponder your own thought processes.

“Brain imaging studies seem so simple and elegant: Hook someone up to a functional MRI (fMRI) machine, which measures blood flow; see which parts of the brain light up; and identify regions associated with love, rejection, etc. But in a forthcoming paper [pdf], psychologist Hal Pashler of the University of California at San Diego and his colleagues challenge the validity of broad claims that come from these studies. The authors charge that shoddy statistics and noisy measurements are leading to gross overestimations of the correlation between brain activity and emotions.” – Discover They are exactly right, to a person who can see the blue sky, however, this is obvious without the math.

Paper

Some of the other impediments to awareness are;

The Blind Spot Afflicts 99.953% of the population. An extiction maker.

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

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

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

Misogyny – Discourages “woman think”

This paper will show the logical structure of the mind, and how it can be unlocked. Watch the included video link. Once you understand the basic nature of the mind. You can continue. Else, go read a comic book. Might as well get rid of the idiots early on. What you should get out of this is that the mind is a self programming amorphous mass of neurons. (a rats mind anyway)

Think of it as a sentient computer, blind, deaf, dumb lacking in any input except the data received through me. In a sense I am it’s avatar. It’s way of dealing with the world. It doesn’t really understand the world. The only purpose it has is for me to survive. It could care less if an asteroid impacts the earth tomorrow and destroys humanity. It only cares about me. It cares about emotions, feelings, desires, wants, aspirations, beauty, etc. only because I do, it is how I deal with the world. To the ANN these are abstract concepts. They are only symbols.

An un-locked mind does not automatically reject data. I view the majority of mankind as being mentally disabled. Not unintelligent, but crippled on two levels, un-centered (80%?) and locked (99%) I don’t think an un-centered person could pull off a QD Fix. Their emotions are artificial, not having a center to draw on. A centered person should be able to wing it. If you feel something coming, let er rip. As an aside, I’ve never seen a centered person who was malevolent. They would have to give up their center to become an asshole. I don’t think it’s possible anyone could want that. It would be an emotional suicide. You won’t see any rich centered people. They would rather be humble than assholes. That’s the only real choice there is in life.

I am painting with a broad brush here. So as not to bloat the concepts, I will omit the exceptions, special cases and disclaimers. This is fuzzy logic (bottom up thinking) Which can be “The best answer to date” (level 1), “This idea seems to work for the moment” (level 2) or the less definitive “Could be” (Level 3)

Fuzzy logic is a form of multi-valued logic derived from fuzzy set theory to deal with reasoning that is approximate rather than precise. In contrast with “crisp logic”, where binary sets have binary logic, the fuzzy logic variables may have a membership value of not only 0 or 1 – that is, the degree of truth of a statement can range between 0 and 1 and is not constrained to the two truth values of classicpropositional logic. Oh Really!, you think so huh?

In fact what is accepted as truth in top down thinking is only Level 1 as determined by bottom up thinking. It is NEVER complete, and could be entirely wrong if hijacked by religion, education or other societal programming. If this societal programming occurs during the critical period of growth (birth-age 7 or puberty) it can become imprinting, a PERMANENT inability of the mind to accept new concepts. A person can know, but not understand a concept that does not fit into this framework. They become idiots (not used as a pejorative but as a clinical term, I am, after all, striving to be professional) The implications of this imprinting are profound. Bottom up thinking is regarded as psychotic by mental health and meta-physical bullshit by the general population. Not only is creativity crushed by this imprinting but it has resulted in a society composed of zombies (stupid people, doing stupid things for stupid reasons) living a meaningless existence in an ant warren. An example of this is physics, in which the nature of the universe being of a wave nature is known but not understood. To date I am aware of a dozen people who understand, and half of them are dead.

I recently became interested in the aboriginal framework of reasoning. I have heard is 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. This imprinting is canabilastic in nature, like the zombie, it want’s to eat your brains. It is the Ayn Rand Beast. The Beast OPL

“A neuron’s gotta do what a neuron’s gotta do” – el Loco Gringo

This is the beginning. This is where the understanding of the mind can be found. This is a functional model of the neuron. I prefer to leave the how of the neuron to the neurologists. I prefer to leave psychology to the idiots. I will include links for those who are interested in such things.

Kevin warwick, University of Reading, UK has cultured 300,000 rat brain cells into an amorphous mass of neurons and connected wires. The neurons immediately began connecting and communicating. (or went forth and multiplied if you want to get metaphysical) Why, you may ask? Because that’s what neurons do. The neuron has evolved to have the properties of connecting and communicating to form decision tree networks. the epiphany for me, going off like a flare over the field of battle, was the realization of what the robot is doing. Your first thought is that it is trying to avoid the walls. Nope. It is going forth and multiplying. It is seeking more neurons to connect and communicate with. Why? Becaurse that’s what neurons do. This experiment illustrates the most significant discovery in the history of man. Essentially the decision tree is giving the output “nope that’s not a neuron, change direction”. This decision tree is what I will later call an algorithm.

This link is essential to understanding what is going on inside the skull.

Basically the brain is a self programming amorphous mass of neurons. (at least a rat brain)

The Toto Theory

“Time is just the minds way of keeping everything from happening at once” – el Loco Gringo

TOE – Theory Of Everything

Toto – Dorothy’s dog that pulled back the curtain in the “Wizard of Oz”.

The elusive goal of all physical sciences since Einsteins Theories exploded upon the scientific community. This goal being to tie in gravity with the strong force, weak force and electromagnetic force.

This paper will show the time component of the equations to be false. It will also demonstrate the basis for nirvana and man’s connectedness with the universe.

It will be demonstrated that the mind is doing the equivalent of a inverse Fourier transform so as to present sensory input into a form usable by the mind.

The Fourier, Laplace and other transforms are a series of formulae used to convert real data (time domain) into an imaginary domain (frequency), obtain the answer, and convert it back into the time domain. Obtain the above applet here> Fourier

Consider a triangular wave. It would be virtually impossible to tease out the component frequencies, indeed there may be many possibilities. However, the mere act of converting this into the frequency domain, shows the component frequencies (middle graph). The answer just is. The answer is then converted back into the time domain. Voila

However the concept is backwards, as people are prone to think backwards. Time is an artifact, the same as sound or any other sensory input. IE Sound exists only in our minds, sound is merely our minds way of making sense of vibrations in the 20 to 20000 Hz range. The same with vision where photons impacting the cones and rods are spread out into a spectrum of frequencies so our minds can make sense of it. Sight and sound then are merely interpretations of reality. It follows logically that time, if an artifact, would be handled in the same manner. But what then is time an interpretation of? Time is the minds way of making sense of motion, IE vector + distance, IE frequency domain. It is a shadow of reality. That is why there is more information in the frequency domain. It is reality.

Consider E=MC^2. The C component is the speed of light. Speed = Time/distance. Since time is an artifact the valid C should be vector/distance. Thus the space/time continuum becomes the space/vector continuum, (or more accurately, simply the continuum). Thus it can be argued that distance is also an artifact. IE Our mind’s way of making sense of the frequency domain that is reality.

As to string theory, m theory, the dodecahedron, parallel universes etc., These are merely clumsy attempts at trying to fit reality into an artificial way of thinking. (The scientific method)

So it seems the right hemisphere operates in the frequency domain and the left hemisphere operates in the time domain (artificial). This then is the connectedness to the universe. Bottom up thinking.

The purpose of this paper 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.

The purpose of this paper 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.

Prologue


A short history of evolution

 

“What would Charlie do?” – el Loco Gringo

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

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

 

Phased sleep


The graphic is of a choengsam, black is for provocative, see red is for happy

Mr Ted one thing about DSPS or whatever, … there is a bleeding/leaking between the dream realm and the conscious realm in delayed sleep phase cycle that seems to put connections into one’s consciousness that might not otherwise come so easily. not sure because i can’t be in two phases at one time, but maybe.

Yup! The minds are not multitasking. But all you have to do is ask your right mind to find out what it’s doing.

Do you awaken in the early hours? You may be aflicted with normalicy. Is REM sleep in fact bottom up thinking? Well……..Yes. I’m not positing anything new here, this “phased sleep” has been known about for thousands of years. Vedic scripts suggest the early morning hours for meditating. In pre-lightbulb cultures Phased sleep is the norm. This is when musing occurs, whether in the form of dreaming, meditating, or pondering. While the right mind is continously collating, (except when musing) the left mind is operating in real time, evaluating current input. The minds aren’t multitasking, but we have two of them. During REM sleep, external sensory input is shut down and the left mind turns it’s attention to the collated results of the right mind. i.e. we dream, or if the collated results are significant, we awake and muse. Meditation is artificial musing. To me the data for supporting this conclusion is overwhelming with nothing but common sense and Psychology providing counter arguments. Overt demonstration of this gift is viewed as metaphysical bullshit by society and psychotic by psychology. Psychology, the new inquisition, uses the metaphorical stake to shut down this natural way of dealing with reality. I am aware of no counter-indicative worldviews. (except for psychology)

DSPS Delayed sleep-phase syndrome (DSPS), also known as delayed sleep-phase disorder (DSPD) or delayed sleep-phase type (DSPT), is a circadian rhythm sleep disorder, a chronic disorder of the timing of sleep, peak period of alertness, the core body temperature rhythm, hormonal and other daily rhythms, compared to the normal population and relative to societal requirements. People with DSPS generally fall asleep some hours after midnight and have difficulty waking up in the morning.[1] Wikipedia \

Anthropology of sleep Research suggests that sleep patterns vary significantly across cultures.[63][64] The most striking differences are between societies that have plentiful sources of artificial light and ones that do not.[63] The primary difference appears to be that prelight cultures have more broken-up sleep patterns.[63] For example, people might go to sleep far sooner after the sun sets, but then wake up several times throughout the night, punctuating their sleep with periods of wakefulness, perhaps lasting several hours.[63] The boundaries between sleeping and waking are blurred in these societies.[63] Some observers believe that nighttime sleep in these societies is most often split into two main periods, the first characterized primarily by deep sleep and the second by REM sleep.[63] Wikipedia

The Cog Do you sleep-torture yourself? Are you a cog in the system of profit and wage slavery, or a bit of debris? That is one question you might have to answer yourself. It will depend on your ideas of the “real world” or the world you are told by the financial system that you inhabit. Where is this sick pyramid they use to control you located? – Xomba

REM The discovery of rapid eye movement (REM) sleep suggested that sleep was not, as it was thought to be, a dormant state but rather a mentally dynamic one. Your brain is, in fact, very active in this state, almost to the level at which it is when a person is awake. Yet during this active stage in which most dreams – Serendip

CRSD Humans, like most animals and plants, have biological rhythms, known as circadian rhythms, which are controlled by a biological clock and work on a daily time scale.

So the natural sleep pattern is from 8pm to midnight, then from 2am to dawn. A meditative state is experienced between midnight and 2am with increased levels of prolactin.

Wetware


Wetware (my definition) is a suite of approved/disapproved activities for the minds to operate under. Basic rules if you will which the minds MUST obey and not disobey. (two different things) This is knowledge. This is non-negotiable. This is imprinting. This is TRUTH (upper case)

Software (my definition) is a suite of rules that the minds SHOULD adhere to that do not conflict with the wetware. This is wisdom from which knowledge is derived. This is negotiable. This is learning. This is truth (lower case)

Imprinting sets the rules that MUST be obeyed and cannot be overridden. This imprinting occurs during the critical period of life, from birth to puberty or age 7 depending on culture.

Let me give a couple of samples, we’ll go to a neutral corner and envision baby Charlie Chimp with mama chimp on the savannah. Mama chimp hears a rustle in the grass and reflexes to the nearest tree. A reflex occurs in nanoseconds. Why do I say she reflexes? Because if she didn’t have the imprinting to reflex upon hearing a rustle in the grass she would be lion lunch and we wouldn’t have a Charlie Chimp to write this post about. She got this imprinting genetically through epigenetics from her mama. And she just passed this imprinting on to Charlie Chimp and his descendents (us) this is the startle reflex. If you don’t know what it is, run. This is on the primal defense. If it turns out to be a lion, mama did good and gets to pass her genes on. If not, no harm done. Let’s say it turns out to be the alpha-male of the band seeking another cop. Mama makes (probably) a reaction (within ½ second) and either goes rump up or snarl. Understand no thinking has occurred yet. The decisions are all per-surmised. On the other hand, lets say it’s another male seeking a cop. Whoa, gotta evaluate this. Mama may allow or not depending on the conjugate shortcuts set on her right and left algorithms. 3 ½ to 7 seconds. And may or may not go rump up. Please note, no thinking has occurred yet. As it takes 7 seconds for thinking and musing to start from the rustle in the grass, it doesn’t make evolutionary sense to think real time. Dreaming is where cognition occurs, musing in the right mind and thinking in the left mind. (correlating and evaluating). Normally. So we only think we’re thinking.

Consider the spider, like the majority of mankind you will probably have a startle reflex when you see a spider. You can’t stop it. Even if you know it’s coming. You WILL reflex (nanoseconds) and react (½ second) It’s that little uncontrollable twitch you also get when someone makes a swipe at your eyes. It can’t be stopped. This ALWAYS occurs.

Back to imprinting. A suite of approved/disapproved behaviors for the minds, like language skills, color perception, social mores, time, sound are imprinted during the critical period. This time is situational, however, it depends on circumstances, dilating or compression as appropriate. Clock time is learned, not native.

If we think of the universe as unfolding and refolding of vibrations, or in-welling and out-welling, or to’in and fro’in whatever, the western civilization imprint “approves” the unfolding but “disapproves” the refolding. This disconnects our connectedness. Our sense of the dynamic interrelated aspect of reality.

I’ve just been asked “how do you get centered with both pipelines going?” How, indeed, do you break these societal bonds? How do you free yourself? Tell this psychotic society to go take a flying fuck at a rolling doughnut? Here’s one way. It may work for you, or……………..maybe not. Each person is unique and each cure is unique. There is no magic bullet. BUT, it is necessary to have access to communication with another sentient being (non idiot). It is a pecularity of the right mind that a concept actually be transferred and understood by another sentient being to bypass the doorman. Blogging does this quite nicely. Congratulations, Mr M you’ve unwrapped your gift. Your dendrites have found new homes without the ideological imprinting. You are now riding the EpiphanyExpress. 500 posts Chrysalis

Believe Nothing


Lose the Lattice

“You are young yet‥but the time will arrive when you will learn to judge for yourself. ‥Believe nothing you hear, and only one half that you see.” – [1845 E. A. Poe in Graham’s Mag. Nov. 194]

I’ll go past that. Believe Nothing, Judge for yourself. Everything we have been taught is wrong. Or will be proven to be. Or agendaed. Or incomplete. At best we can only say “This is the best answer to date.” This caveat must be appended to every “fact” we are given. Prefixing “Recent studies have shown” to a statement doesn’t verify the statement.

The tendency to believe runs deep in our genes. In the paleolithic a youngster who didn’t instantly follow his mother up a tree when a lion appeared became lion-lunch. The same is true today. When I was a child I ocasionally ran away from home. I could only run as far as aunt Maudes house because I wasn’t allowed to cross the street. One pretty day in California, I decided to take my daughters to see the Sequoia National Park. I blew right past the “chain law” sign at the entry. It was a beautiful sunny day. About half-way up a switchback road It started snowing those big flakes that stick to your windows. The only vision I had was the two areas on the windshield that were cleared by the windshield wipers. Outside everything was white. It was my memory only that told me that to the left was a sheer cliff down and to the right a sheer cliff up. The car started sliding on the ice. Then the thought came to mind of the time I rolled a VW off a switchback in Germany. It also occured to me that I couldn’t see other cars and other cars couldn’t see me. This is not looking good. So I get to the inn at the top, and found my daughters on the floorboards covered with blankets and pillows. One said “when daddy’s knuckles turn white, it’s time to get worried”

But there are people who have found this “need button” and there are people who have this “need” to believe. I call them assholes and idots. So once you’ve followed mama safely up the tree, watching the lion pace below. Ponder whether you could have done anything different. Judge for yourself

Neuronology


“Go forth and multiply”

Aha! I see what the problem is. The “mental operator” is the Fourier Transform as it applies to how we see the world. The minds operate on at least 3 levels, probably more. one is how we see the world. (axion level) IE In the right mind we see the world in the frequency domain, this is the rotating vectors. The left mind interprets this in the time domain throws away a dimension BUT adds interpretations of the rotating vectors as color, sound and time. This has nothing to do with idiots. Another level is how we think about the world (dendrite level). The right mind muses with a boolean network with possible outputs of A or B or both or neither, It is a parallel level that requires the holding of several concepts at one time. This is where the idiots and non-idiots comes in. This is the part that is hijacked by imprinting by religion, education etc. The left mind uses a binary network with an A or B output. It is a serial network that only allows one truth. Evaluations are performed by each mind using two different logic trees and the results compared. (Is this single conclusion (left mind) consistent with with my previous experience?) The third level is how we feel about things, ie how much intensity should we attach to the logical conclusions It is an aggregate and accumulate process. IE the last time I bonked polly protohuman, how many times did the alpha male hit me and how hard. (endoplasmic reticulator). If that’s not bad enough, a chaotic pattern is synthesized by the firing of the neurons by a process similar to conway’s game of life, and more accurately cellular automata. This is the patterns they see on the MRI scans and provides the means of storing data. (holography, recursion, etc. whatever you want to call it, the words don’t exist) This is a link to a basic explanation of the Fourier process which is the part of all this gibberish you should be interested in.

YinYanging


Mr Ted, 06/28/10

Aha! Back to having fun again.

It is a generally accepted theory that inherited genotype, transmitted epigenetic factors, and non-hereditary environmental variation contribute to the phenotype of an individual.”

That’s an incomplete shortcut, something I would say to an idiot. To a non-idiot I would say something like “Dunno, but it seems to have something to do with genotype, epigenetics and environment. As to bouncing back and forth, I’m yinyanging. (comparing the outputs of the left and right minds for inconsistencies). Compare this to an idiot who has their right mind crippled by imprinting of dogma. (western civilization) The outputs always compare. The left mind says A is truth, the right mind says see left mind. Therefore A is TRUTH. TRUTH is impossible, unless you’re GOD (or the BIG HOOCHIE KOOCHIE) So an idiot is yangyanging and you, Mr Ted, are yinyining. Fascinating!

There is no TRUTH, there are only truths” – el Loco Gringo

As to “it ain’t real” I’ve gone as far as I can without more data, specifically what is happening at the interface of local/spacial forcing (right mind) . IE how accurate is it? Your inclusional worldview is certainly more complete than mine, but it doesn’t add any new data in a usable format. So I am left with the BIG HOOCHIE appears to be negentropic, vibrational with a harmonic of 8. And that is iffy, more than speculation but less than TRUTH. It is merely truth.

So you are right in your observation that yangyanging blocks creativity.

This is pretty good actually, I’m going to have to flesh it out and post it.

Dimorphism


“It’s about sex, it’s all about sex, it’s always all about sex” – el Loco Gringo

Gender dimorphism The brain consists of two chemical computers, separate but synchronous. Psychologists and neurologists like to think of it in electrical terms because they can see flashes in the mind when they hook up an MRI machine. This gives them the delusional belief that they understand. The electrical activity is the result of the chemical activity, not the cause. (People think backwards, the brain fart) The electrical activity is shadows only.

We have two cognitive minds. The right mind is the more primitive, with enormous storage and collating abilities, but not very smart. I liken it to a puppy, in intelligence and temperament. It is our connectedness with the universe, the emotional impulse, the weighting which is applied to decisions. It perceives vibrations only. The left mind reaches into this chaos (in both senses of the word) correlates the collated data of the right mind and breaks it down into a simplified format that we can make sense of. (time, sound and color) A subset of reality, if you will. This is the perceptual brain fart, We know, but do not understand. This is the same built in logic flaw that Einstein and Schrodinger encountered in their 3 stooges talk.

There is a lot of discussion of the male and female sides of the brain. This is misleading conceptually. While in rutting season the hormones push the attendant halves slightly to one side or the other, the functionality of each side largely overlaps. Cultural bias? In fact, the two halves differ in logic patterns, the left in resolving determinate problems and the right in resolving indeterminate problems. In Tao this is called Yin/Yang.  Yin being the female perspective, Yang the male.  This being literally true only in the singular case of humans. IE yin and yang are the causitive agent. Not gender.

Functionality: Left/Right> determinant/ indeterminate> reductionist/ constructionist> binary/Boolean> known/ unknown> fast/ slow> knowledge/wisdom> linear/ random> top down/ bottom up> words/ symbols> math/ set> dogma/creativity> serial/parallel

It is virtually impossible to describe the workings of the right mind in words, in the same way it is virtually impossible to describe the workings of the left mind in symbols. However the ANN can do it. Transferring and translating the data from the right to the left mind. It inverts the last data hit on the right mind and places it on the left mind where it becomes the first hit. It is the best solution to date. The educational system has crippled creativity with it’s insistence on verbal and written communication only. The educational idiots tried to use set theory on math, not having a clue of how the mind works. It failed abysmally, of course. Idiots, idiots everywhere. There are few left who can think creatively (muse). You can’t talk about the right mind without drawing pictures. It is insane to try. The same as using pictures to describe the left mind.

Sexual Dimorphism – Here I depart radically from conventional wisdom.  I used to think that females “revlon” to attract males.  Not so.  Females revlon to compete with other females in a power struggle.  We live in a “shadow matriarchy”  in which women control society through their sons.  “The hand that rocks the cradle rules the world” – Alexander the great.  It is this world that females are involved in a power struggle to control.

In all species including humans, it is the male that must compete because it is the lesser sex.  Consider, if all the males died out save one, the human race would be up and running within a couple of generations.  (this happened once, a choke point when humanity almost went extinct)  On the other hand if all the females died out save one, mankind would go extinct.  For the most part, males are expendable.

Parthenogenesis – non sexual reproduction is this carried to the extreme.  Actually non-sexual reproducing organisms should not be called sexless but female. (bacteria, amobea etc)

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Consider the blobfish or the warthog.

When a male of either species sees a female, it sets it’s heart to racing.  “wow, nice blobs or warts on that bitch” goes through it’s head in the same way we say “nice tits on that barmaid”.  It would also serve to prevent cross-species mating.   While I have never seen a documentated case of a man mating with either, i recognize that type of behavior pattern  is something he would probably keep to himself.  I’m afraid that if it were up to me, blobfish/warthog kind would have to go extinct.  So…. where is the beauty in humans?  The same holds true IE the males.  Fish do it with scales, birds with feathers, humans with bling. (things)  Freud observed that all women have a penis envy.  Makes sense, it is indeed a beautiful thing.  Like snowflakes, no two are alike.

As to size.  We live in a combative society, constantly waging war.  Women don’t need to fight, they’ve got that money maker.  Thus size and strength would give them a distinct survival disadvantage.   “What, how can that be?” you may ask.  Good question, and I’ve got a good answer.  smaller size makes women rapable.   Consider, the victors in any war typically kill all the males, rape the females and sell the children into slavery.  Thus the females genes are propagated.  After all “people are just dna’s way of making more dna.” – Edward Wilson

The other aspect of this is that dimorphism forces females to develop finesse  in intrinsic relationships and leave the extrinsic relationships to the male, engendering synergy.

Functional Neuron


The Functional Neuron

(Bottom up Psychology)

Bearing in mind that the electronic analogy is an only an analogy, The diagram shows 8 gates (neurons). The neuron actually controls two systems, the dendrites and the axons. The axon connections have to be close together, the dendrites can be across the brain. Now we’ll do an analogy of an analogy. We’ll call the right hand group of 4 the axon (objective) network and the left hand the dendrite (subjective) network. Let’s assume we want to make a decision on taking a job. The two de terminates we have decided on are; proximity and pay. Pick one of these gates and assign these to the two inputs. If the pay is good and it’s close, and all other things being equal, the neuron will fire and we’ll take the job.

But all is not equal. Let’s make the situation ambiguous, the pay is good but we have to move. Oops, now we have a problem, do it fire or do it don’t fire? Lets check the dendrite system, that’s the tie breaker. We’ll assign values to the eight input pins. Friends, clubs, associations, expenses, ethics, location, stability, parking. (It doesn’t matter) Assign values to each of these inputs, add them up or sum them (confabulator) If the number is positive we take the job. If the number is negative we pass. Even if the pay is good and it’s close the dendrite system may override the firing if the values are high enough.

This is why when they do a CAT scan on brain activity, there will be a cluster of neurons firing and random unexplained random firings. The dendrite system is the “hidden layer” that has been heretofore unexplained. Hunches, centering, creativity, ethics hooks in here.

Bear in mind, the mind actually works in patterns, not in discrete functions.

Single Neuron Theory

Split Mind(s)


I’m of two minds about this

Bottom up thinking is real good about finding whats wrong, not so good at determining what’s right.” – el Loco Gringo

I can’t make up my minds.

Yet another attempt to get across what I’m talking about. We have two cognitive minds, each with it’s own logic method; the left top down (thinking,serial binary), the right bottom up (musing, weighted boolean). Each has it’s own algorithm (decision tree). This is all coordinated by the ANN. The unANN can be viewed as data storage.

The right hemisphere contains everything I have ever felt; experiences, triumphs, tragedys, fears, emotions, everything is there. It is constantly being collated and “hits” set on the right algorithm.

The left hemisphere contains everything I have ever thought (about what’s in the right hemisphere) about the relationship between what’s in the right hemisphere and dealing with the world. Hits are set on the left algorithm.

“Mythos embodies a form of mental artistry which symbolically and aesthetically
resonates with an individual’s past conscious experiences of personal enlightenment.

The other system is ‘logos.’ Logos relies on reason and logic,
on what we call rational ways of knowing, a form of science. ”

The results are constantly compared and discrepancies flagged through the corpus collosum. The algorithms MUST compare or there will be a disjunct between the outside and the inside. (bullshit detector) Very simply put; “What I am experiencing now is not consistent with my previous experience.” (eLG want’s to replace the green arrow above with a train track, with a trolly “choo-chooing” back and forth) This is the defect I see in most peoples minds. Like a social lobotomy. Idiots.

The left hemisphere will not think about anything in the right hemisphere unless it is relevant to dealing with the outside world. It only becomes relevant through communication with another sentient being (coffee tables don’t work) IE a concept must be transferred from one mind to another. (see DrB-26) This is why therapy works if you don’t inject your own truth.

This is the yin/yang, the harmony, the balance, the male/female (only in the singular case of a man and woman is it literal, male is power, female is finesse) This is SNAP.

Consider DrB-28. I got curious about the nature of me. I got two answers, both accurate. No disparities. Both match. The algorithms compare. All is well. I am content with the current experience. Does it surprise you that eLG is on my left hemisphere? IE dominant. walter is sub-dominate and Walter is combined. I’m basically an obnoxious boor. Smart, but obnoxious.

This is why I prefer to use my own words to avoid ambiguation. Existing words are frequently colored by misunderstanding or the scientific method. When I use my lexicon I say what I mean and I mean what I say, no more, no less.

“The problem is not that people have more than 1 personality, the problem is that they have any number other than 3.” – el Loco Gringo

Logos/Mythos

And then there’s this:  Bicameral Brain

“Okay, I didn’t make up the term. The term was coined by psychologist Julian Jaynes, who presented the idea in his 1976 book The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind. But it fits so well in describing an extremely interesting phenomenon that many people may not realize — each of us is really two people. No, I don’t mean in the traditional sense of having an alter-ego, or a good and bad side. Nor do I mean that we are all schizoids. I mean we are literally two thinking beings residing in the same body.”

Confabulator


Confabulator

Aggregate

Accumulate

Weighting

“If you’re not confused, you’re not thinking hard enough” – el Loco Gringo

The confabulator is a mental construct that can be used in visualizing the processes in the lower levels of the mind. IE the neuron.

It has two functions (to date), both of which modulate the sensitivity of the neuron. Consider that the Neuron is a gated device.

1)It is an aggregator which adds the output of the dendrite system and transforms it into a quantitative potential (level) that can trigger the gate.

2)It is an accumulator which sums the output of the endoplasmic reticulator. See paper same name.

These signals are combined to bias the gate of the axon, either enabling or disabling it. It thus acts as either a positive/negative feedback/feedforward system. This then is the subjectivity of the decision making process. (centering, taboo, lattice etc.) It also provides the latency which controls long and short term memory. This information is only included for those who are interested in such things. Applying constructionist thinking to the neuron, it is fairly simple to visualize the nature of the mind. (using bottom up thinking)

An aggregate is a collection of items that are gathered together to form a total quantity.

An Accumulator is an apparatus for storing energy or power

The function of the endoplasmic reticulator was described by scientists at the Friedrich Miescher Institute for Biomedical Research

Bearing in mind that the electronic analogy is an only an analogy, The diagram shows 8 gates (neurons). The neuron actually controls two systems, the dendrites and the axons. The axon connections have to be close together, the dendrites can be across the brain. Now we’ll do an analogy of an analogy. We’ll call the right hand group of 4 the axon (objective) network and the left hand the dendrite (subjective) network. Let’s assume we want to make a decision on taking a job. The two de terminates we have decided on are; proximity and pay. Pick one of these gates and assign these to the two inputs. If the pay is good and it’s close, and all other things being equal, the neuron will fire and we’ll take the job.

But all is not equal. Let’s make the situation ambiguous, the pay is good but we have to move. Oops, now we have a problem, do it fire or do it don’t fire? Lets check the dendrite system, that’s the tie breaker. We’ll assign values to the eight input pins. Friends, clubs, associations, expenses, ethics, location, stability, parking. (It doesn’t matter) Assign values to each of these inputs, add them up or sum them (confabulator) If the number is positive we take the job. If the number is negative we pass. Even if the pay is good and it’s close the dendrite system may override the firing if the values are high enough.

This is why when they do a CAT scan on brain activity, there will be a cluster of neurons firing and random unexplained random firings. The dendrite system is the “hidden layer” that has been heretofore unexplained. Hunches, centering, creativity, ethics hooks in here.

Bear in mind, the mind actually works in patterns, not in discrete functions.

Single Neuron Theory

Neural Network


Neural Network

Basically just a bunch of switches, free form in a boolean network. 10% is set aside for the ANN (Allocated Neural Network) The remainder is the unANN. The unANN is what I’ll be discussing. This is a 4 dimensional concept so it’s hard to get your head around it. There are two logic patterns, left hemisphere is for knowns, right hemisphere is for unknowns. Or determinate/indeterminate, reductionist/constructionist, Top Down/Bottom Up, analysis/synthesis, male/female,knowledge/wisdom. These are coordinated via the corpus colostrum. When there is input data both hemispheres receive the data simultaneously. The left hemisphere takes the first hit it gets and acts. (keep in mind, this is the last hit the right hemisphere got, ( the best answer to date)) The right hemisphere continues processing, and may come up with a better hit after a time period. (“I wish I hadn’t said that”) It may even require overnight. It will then modify the decision point on the algorithm and override the left hemisphere.

“Neurons that fire together, wire together.”

BUT!!! What happens when the input data is incorrect? ie psychology 101 or any indeterminate datum. Then you have an unknown known. (known knowns, known unknowns, unknown knowns and unknown unknowns) ie You know something that ain’t so. The right hemisphere has become contaminated with “Man Think” and can no longer perform it’s synergistic role as a counter check and enhancement to the left hemisphere. If a more nuanced answer is needed, it is no longer available.

(Mary Somerville “Perceiving what others do not perceive”)

You cannot use reductionist thinking for solving an indeterminate problem. It is insanity.

Education has destroyed creativity in the soft sciences.

This is what Dan Dennett refers to when he says people think backwords. Examples

We eat sugar because it tastes good. NO!!! Sugar tastes good because we eat it. Our brains are wired that way. We evolved to eat rotten fruit (that’s basically what sugar is)

So how do you “unring the bell”? How do you get the “Man Think” out of the right hemisphere without disturbing the left hemisphere? Pacing switches hemispheres. Twiddling something with your left hand while thinking about a problem? Sleeping on it?

ANN & the Algorythms


& the ANN

Allocated Neural Network

co-starring

The unANN

No, I’m not talking about Ann and the Algorythms the female musical group that was so popular in the 70′s.  I did, however, enjoy their unique blend of the gansta’ rap, square dance, hip hop, country and Beethoven genres .  I’m talking about the ANN, the Allocated Neural Network.

For the purposes of this paper, the mind is considered to be an amorphous mass of neurons. It does not consider physiological or chemical aspects. Nor does it analyze special sections of the brain. Self help, meditation, and other well covered aspects are cursorily mentioned. This paper only covers what is generally un-addressed in conventional models of the mind.

The ANN

The Allocated Neural Network is a model of the mind useful in understanding emotional patterns. It assumes the mind to consist of 100 billion neurons, in a random, free-form 3D amalgam, in two separate hemispheres specializing in top down and bottom up logic. There are two separate, but inter-related levels of activity. The Axon level, binary in function (objective) and the dendrite level, chaotic in nature (subjective). Each hemisphere has it’s own individuated axon network, which we will call an algorithm and it’s associated dendrite network. The dominant and sub-dominant algorithm are switched by the Amygdala to suit the conditions. These algorithms are what a psychologist would call a personality. This is what the ANN is allocated for, the building, maintenance and altering of the axon network as determined by the dendrite network. The unANN is, of course, the un Allocated Neural Network. The dendrite network is a piece of work, operating in 11 (13) dimensions and holographic, it allows for an enormous storage of data (memories, simulations, conditional responses etc) Chaos is synthesized by the ANN in the same way patterns are synthesized by Conway’s Game of life, or cellular automata. It is accessed by means of a Fourier transform.

Wetware

Wetware is is what the ANN is allocated for. It is a re-programable system that allows the mind to index data, memories, concepts and provides links to these. It also sets the decision points in the algorithms accordingly. Basically the ANN, plus the defense mechanisms, plus the algorithms.

Consider a library in which all of the books were piled in a heap in the middle of the floor. It would be a pretty tough job to find an Ayn Rand book. The smaller the pile of books, the less time it will take to find it. Consider a telephone directory in which the names were entered in random order. How long would it take to find Ayn Rand? This is the way the pre-human mind works.

Time is the (un considered) limiting factor in how big the brain can be.

Enter wetware. We index the library. All of the books are put on shelves and to find a particular book all we have to do is look in the index to find that Rand, Ayn is in bookcase A, third row down and we can go right to it. We alphabetize the phone book and Rand, Ayn is near the beginning of the R’s, and we can go right to it. This is the way the human mind works.

The mind no longer needs to remember the data, but only the index of where the data is stored.

Consider Charlie and Polly pre-human walking through the jungle. A boa falls out of a tree and wraps itself around polly and crushes her. The next time a similar occurance occurs (as occurances are wont to do) It will take 6 seconds for Charlie to recall the memory and then begin thinking about what to do. Not too good for Polly. Now if Charlie were human, ie had wetware, the first time this happened, he would review the situation later and decide that next time he would grab a rock and pound the thing in the head, eating lunch instead of being lunch. His ANN sets a trigger point on his algorithm, and within 1/2 second he grabs a rock and begins pounding the head of the boa. MUCH better.

The unANN

Now we get down to it. The unANN is the seat of cognizance. The massive brainpower that drives humanity. Must be complicated. Nope! Pretty dumb, actually. Real Dumb. Totally useless without the wetware programming ability of the ANN. Well what do it do? It do whatever the ANN programs it to do. It is free form, It can be a memory, reservoir of concepts that can be accessed by the algorithms, a “Holodeck’” to play out various scenarios so as to tweak the algorithms. Dreams. Indistinguishable from reality. While it’s really simple in concept and operation, there is a lot of it. This is the 80% of the brain that no one knows what it does. Expensive to fire this sucker up though, 300 calories/hour. This is why our metabolic rate increases when we sleep. It provides buffering and instant replay. It provides timeslip so as to give the illusion of continuity. It is a marvelous solution to the time constraints imposed by our environment.

The mind doesn’t think in the conventional sense of the word. If incoming data does not get a hit on the dominant or sub-dominant algorithm, It will search the chaotic level of each hemisphere (left first) 3 seconds ea. for a pattern match. If a match is found, It will alter the appropriate algorithm to reflect the best solution to date. The left hemisphere is where the “me” is, the right hemisphere is where the “self” is. These patterns are modified when the mind goes into the “sleep” mode, wherein various scenarios are acted out in full color, sight, sound, etc. In other words we dream. This is where “cognizance” is. If we must use the term “think”, this is where it occurs, (or day-dreaming, or pondering) The garbage we get upon awakening is snippets of the dream being flushed out of short term memory, so as to not be confused with reality.

Rene Descartes “I think therefore I am.”

ANN “NO, I think therefore you are.”

You will find no ANN “center” or dream “center” in the brain as you would the speech center. Logically they are closely connected but physically they may be anywhere in the brain. And each person is different starting with initial conditions. (butterfly effect)

AlgorithmInterfaceAlgorithm Interface

This is a conceptual visual model of how the Sensory Input Interfaces with the ANN. The face represents the sensory input, the arcs the algorithms and the brain the ANN (10% of total). The first would be the primal defense mechanism (fight/fight), next the dominant algorithm, then the sub-dominant algorithm. If there is not a hit on the Primal defense mechanism (reflex, fractions of a second), the data passes through to the dominant, if again there is no hit it passes through to the sub-dominant. (reaction ½ second). If there is still no hit the data passes through to the left and right hemispheres of the unANN for direct search. (response 3 sec each). If there is still no hit the data will be put into the queue of the right hemisphere for constructionist processing by the ANN. Any hit there will modify the appropriate algorithm. The dominant and sub-dominant can be switched depending on the environment. Normally they are work and personal. A hit on the centering algorithm will default immediately to the think mode. Note that the algorithms are primarily a irrelevant data discarding mechanism.

Algorithms

In its most general sense, an algorithm is any set of detailed instructions. Dynamic Programming Algorithms: remember older results and attempts to use this to speed the process of finding new results. It is the seat of Personality.

WOW, That looks complicated. Yup. How can you understand it? I can’t. Fortunately I don’t have to. It is only necessary for the person’s ANN to understand it. The Mandelbrot equations will demonstrate the functioning of the algorithm for a simple response. But to what end? What purpose does it serve to find out which neurons fire if you jab an ice pick in someone’s eye? You want to find out whats wrong, not what’s right. You’re looking for patterns. Simply put, if the activity in the unANN is so intense it prevents the person’s ANN from accessing the indexed data stored in the unANN the person has an emotional problem. Whether you call it a spinout, storm, whirlwind or squiggly lines in the head doesn’t matter. Those are just words. What you are left with is the algorithms only and the limited computational power of the ANN. It may be partial. I’m sure a test could be devised to determine how severely the unANN is overloaded. You could then say that the person’s (Synchronous NeuronAccess Potential) SNAP is 73.427%. Again, to what end? Let’s just put it back to 100%.

There are only two algorithms active at one time, the dominate and the sub-dominate. Each algorithm resides on a separate hemisphere of the brain, which depends on whether the person is male or female. The amlygada performs the function of switching back and forth between the two hemispheres making one or the other dominant.

The algorithm’s are the avatars of the ANN, it’s way of interfacing with the world. AHA! you may say, I think, therefore I am. No. the ANN thinks, therefore you are. That sounds simple enough. Well yes, until I tell you that it’s at least 4 dimensional, probably more. Still want to understand ?

The Neuron Trellis


“Neurons that fire together, wire together” – Hebb’s Law

“It helps to have a god to meditate on, It doesn’t seem to matter which one” – Patel



“It helps to have a god to meditate on. It doesn’t matter which one. It helps to focus” – Mr Patel

“Yoga is the science of the East, Science is the yoga of the West”. – John Lilly

Picture the ANN as a neuron trellis, a framework for the neurons to grip as they seek to explore the right hemisphere. “Neurons that fire together wire together.” In this sense it is one of many: Others include transactional analysis, Voodoo, meditation, religion, kaballah, whole brain thinking, and, of course, that ridiculous psychological standby bipolar manic/depression. (genius) This experience is referred to as nirvana, alternate existence, higher plane, at one with the universe by some, or just hunches or insight by others, but as nonsense by most. As it is normal for neurons to connect and communicate, (or go forth and multiply, if you want to get meta-physical) they will follow the path of least resistance, in this case the ANN. Actually bottom up thinking is nothing more than a weighted boolean network, which has states of true, false, neither or both. This compares to the top down logic of true or false only.

Abduction is a method of logical inference introduced by Charles Sanders Peircewhich comes prior to induction and deduction for which the colloquial name is to have a “hunch”. Abductive reasoning starts when an inquirer considers of a set of seemingly unrelated facts, armed with an intuition that they are somehow connected. The term abduction is commonly presumed to mean the same thing as hypothesis; however, an abduction is actually the process of inference that produces a hypothesis as its end result. – Wikipedia (it is interesting to note, that I have not had a single hit in my ruminations on the mind which refers to psychology)

The Model

“We have two cognitive minds each with it’s own logical and perceptual processing, synchronous and modulated by intensity. (weighting)” – el Loco GringoModel

This is a model of the mind. It is frame of reference useful in understanding the emotional workings of a healthy mind. It is a framework only. It is the equivalent of gravity compared to relativity, electro-magnetism compared to string theory, atomic theory compared to quantum theory. It is logical in nature, not physiological. It does not include chemical, hormonal, mechanical or mathematical aspects of the mind. It is just something we mere mortals can wrap our heads around. It is not the mind. Do not confuse it with reality.
In a queer logical inversion of progression, the science of the mind has outstripped the theory. Neuroscience, mathematics, chemistry are making enormous strides, while psychology is stuck in the neolithic. It’s as if ICBM’s were discovered before the bow and arrow, or the internal combustion engine before fire, or the automobile before the wheel. As the mind is holographic in nature, it is describable by chaos mathematics.

As the IQ test only measures the abilities of the left hemisphere, it is inadequate for measuring the overall cognitive ability. I use the word SNAP to measure overall cognitive ability. If one assumes that IQ accurately measures the average IQ at 100, the snap should be 200, discounting synergysm which should bring it up to about 300. Several social factors lower this average to the equivalent of the IQ. Among these are the Taboo, the Abyss, and reductionist overlay on the right hemisphere. The mind has been trained to ignore data and logic.

The left hemisphere specializes in reductionist thinking, the right in constructionist thinking. Or you could say knowledge and wisdom. The left is definite and fast, the right is methodical and slow (and unused).

There is another guy working on this problem, limited to computer programming. (Andy Hunt) Damn, he’s close. But so far it looks good. He uses different words, of course, but the concepts are very similar. He’s 103 pages into a 205 page book.

Framework

The ANN is a framework and a framework only, no more, no less. It is a structure to hang your concepts on while exploring the mind. It is my framework. My career has been in electronics so I picture it as a Boolean network. In contrast to the scientific method, I start with the question and work my way to the answer, or start with the evidence and work my way to the conclusion. The scientific method will not work here. There are many frameworks, some partial, none full. Psychology is the most common, but it’s total bullshit. Yoga, TA, Zen, Tao and Confucianism are others. These are all valid but incomplete. Religion is a framework that must be used with caution, it has the hidden danger of allowing someone else to occupy rent free space in your mind. As long as you keep it a matter between yourself and God, it’s fine.

The point to concentrate on is that there is no single “truth”, there are a myriad of “truths”. As the mind is indeterminate, it is unlikely that any two individuals have the same “truth”. But a framework will give you a starting point to find your own truth. This is why psychology is not, and cannot be valid.

The Neuron


“Go forth and multiply”

The “mental operator” is the Fourier Transform as it applies to how we see the world. The minds operate on at least 3 levels, probably more. one is how we see the world. (axion level) IE In the right mind we see the world in the frequency domain, this is the rotating vectors. The left mind interprets this in the time domain throws away a dimension BUT adds interpretations of the rotating vectors as color, sound and time. This has nothing to do with idiots. Another level is how we think about the world (dendrite level). The right mind muses with a boolean network with possible outputs of A or B or both or neither, It is a parallel level that requires the holding of several concepts at one time. This is where the idiots and non-idiots comes in. This is the part that is hijacked by imprinting by religion, education etc. The left mind uses a binary network with an A or B output. It is a serial network that only allows one truth. Evaluations are performed by each mind using two different logic trees and the results compared. (Is this single conclusion (left mind) consistent with with my previous experience?) The third level is how we feel about things, ie how much intensity should we attach to the logical conclusions It is an aggregate and accumulate process. IE the last time I bonked polly protohuman, how many times did the alpha male hit me and how hard. (endoplasmic reticulator). If that’s not bad enough, a chaotic pattern is synthesized by the firing of the neurons by a process similar to conway’s game of life, and more accurately cellular automata. This is the patterns they see on the MRI scans and provides the means of storing data. (holography, recursion, etc. whatever you want to call it, the words don’t exist) This is a link to a basic explanation of the Fourier process which is the part of all this gibberish you should be interested in.

The Sub-Set Logic Fail

Confusing Reality


I always learn something when speaking to centered and it is always fascinating. This is the “awareness” I speak of. The quality of cognizance that an idiot lacks. An idiot is only capable of “shortcut” thinking. (top down) They have turned off their bullshit detector, which in a centered is continuously running in the background, monitoring and setting trigger points, (shortcuts) as necessary. And they play games with their rubber ruler. Nothing wrong with a rubber ruler or shortcut thinking as long as it is realized that that’s what it is. And this makes sense, Charlie Chimp can’t be standing around the paleolithic savannah with his head up his ass or he’ll be lion lunch.

This is the brain fart, the sub-set function generator built into the mind. This is a logic fail which an idiot cannot even conceive of, dismissing bottom up thinking as metaphysical bullshit or psychosis. I am amused and distressed by the attempts to find out why Einstein was smart. They do MRI scans, fractal analysis on the convolution patterns, compare volume of various structures to the norm. I could save them a bunch of money. Einstein was smart because he wasn’t an idiot. He was NORMAL. A person who was centered and interested in the way the universe worked. His mind hadn’t been hijacked. A mirror is required to bypass this built in sub-set function generator to set trigger points. One thing that you may not have been aware of. There is no TRUTH, but there are many truths. (there is more than one way to skin a cat) that in itself a truth, a viral meme, a broadcast shortcut. TRUTH precludes understanding, truth doesn’t.

Some of my shortcuts on the centered.

  1. They are not threatened by new ideas. They will “honestly” evaluate a new concept applying appropriate logic to relevant facts.
  2. They are cross disciplinary. IE a centered poet is fully capable of understanding the concept of a cosmic standing wave, and the importance of it without the need to go into physics or math.
  3. They have an influence far out of proportion to their numbers. They are the “cooler heads that prevail” in decision making.
  4. They have a sense of social responsibility. They understand that as “a rising tide raises all ships, a sinking ship drowns passengers and crew alike”. They can balance the needs of the individual with the needs of society.
  5. They are complete and unique, in and by themselves, without the need for approval or validation.
  6. They are capable of dealing with a concept on another’s terms. For instance, on reading your website, they can see the concept from your perspective.
  7. They always do the right thing. Even when no one is watching.

Essentially, they are non-idiots.

To clear up something I said earlier, when I was speaking of yoga being “mental masturbation” I was speaking of idiots. They are in a place that their brains are not wired to comprehend. It comes across as a psychedelic experience. They are incapable of seeing the “big picture”.

I am, however, uneasy with the word yoga, it sounds kinda effete. A “real” man does Zen.”

But of course it’s not the only modeling mechanism. That would be TRUTH, and TRUTH is dogma, an inflexible belief system TRUTH is the bane of physics, (and of man as a whole) Only an idiot believes in TRUTH. My sub-set modeling system is truth, specifically my truth. IE my “best answer to date” I have others which I apply as appropriate. They are equally as valid, and some of them would seem to be contradictory. What must be kept in mind in our attempt at understanding is the existence of the brain fart. In like manner I feel that belief in god is a perfectly valid belief system, as long as you don’t let religion get in the way. To me religion and god are mutually exclusive concepts. And maybe the big hoochie coochie IS god. Wouldn’t that be cool?

To summarize there are 3 main types of brain fart

TBF – Taoist Brain Fart, Inability to analyze

ABF – Aristotelian Brain Fart, Inability to generalize

RBF – Religious Brain Fart, Inability to spiritulize

There are others of course, Hipostatized belief systems that leave the victim, quite literally “half witted”, an idiot. Stupid, intelligent perhaps, but stupid nonetheless.

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

A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, design a building, conn a ship, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve an equation, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects. “ – Robert Heinlein (Specialization is for idiots.)

I have another website called Atenolol Dreams which explores the workings of the right mind via lucid dreaming. In one dream I am approached by Dr. ANN, what I call my overseer. I said “I think therefore I am” Descartes” She replied “No, I think therefore you are” Hmmm!

This is an excellent paper I got from Mali Musings which has a non inconsitant take on the brain fart.

Why Western Christianity Failed. The speaker was Dr. Jim Wilder from Shepherd’s House in California.

– The first part was about a 300 year old philosophy that heavily influenced Western Theology.
– The second part looked at how medieval psychology influences us until today.
– And the third part explained how we ended up with a false dichotomy because of these two influences.

Why can no one smell the brain fart?

It’s stinking up the cranium
