“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.

ANN 2

A cartography of the human psyche

“We are not smarter because we have more neurons, we have more neurons because we are smarter.”– el Loco Gringo

OK children, we now get down to the real nitty gritty. How does the mind really work? We will disregard the physical aspects and concentrate only on the logical aspects of operation. Time to quit talking baby talk and psycho babble.

The protohuman brain consists of only a few logical determinations. Sensory I/O, Interface, the ANN and it’s associated defense mechanisms. Auxiliary support and control mechanisms are outside the our direct purview. The sensory I/O consists of the sight, sound, smell, proprioceptor input, (pain, location, heat, cold etc). The interface is that part of the mind which transforms input from the sensory I/O into a form usable by the defense mechanisms. (turns photons into a spectrum of intensity and color, turns vibrations in the air into sound. The output of the sensory I/O is not reality but a representation of reality. The ANN is the Allocated Neural Network, dedicated to the maintenance and modification of the defense mechanisms, and excluding that part of the mind devoted to autonomic responses. Estimate 200-300 cc of brain mass. This is the I, the me/not me, the seat of consciousness. It thinks real time. Time is the missing element in the understanding of the mind, that element ignored by the various ‘ists. Getting the timing right is crucial to the survival of this critter. It takes time to think. If the timing is too short the defense mechanism will be relatively unsophisticated. If too long, it will be spending too much time. If Charlie Chimp is standing around the Savannah with his head up his butt, thinking about doing the ugly bump with Poly Protohuman, and his response to a threat is not fast enough, or sophisticated enough, he won’t be doing Poly tonight and we won’t have a Stanford Dept of Psychology for el Loco Gringo to make fun of., and that would make him very sad. So an optimal time evolved. about 1/2 second. Using his newly evolved ability to use tools and implements, Charlie Chimp (Alpha Male) could now beat the subservient males about the head and shoulders with a stick guaranteeing his primacy in the poon tang receiving department and reinforcing the taboo.

There is a time imposed limit on the number of neurons that this type of mind can utilize.

Sometime between 50,000 and 2,900,000 years ago the greatest evolutionary leap occurred since the first few neurons clumped together. Wet ware. This miracle allowed the thinking to be done off line and the resultant changes implemented. Indexing allowed for the possibility of not accessing the data directly, but indirectly. ie with the reprogram able wet ware it is necessary only to know the location of the data, not the data itself. This mind is capable of handling many more neurons without compromising the timing constraints.

People think backwards. We are not super-chimps. it’s a whole new ball game.

Introducing the unANN, the unAllocated Neural Network, a free form mass of neurons (2000cc) that can be programmed for specific functions and used as a storage area that can be accessed via indexing by the ANN. It is now possible for the defense mechanisms to become much more sophisticated. They are so much more sophisticated that a new word is needed. Algorithm.

“What would Charlie do?” – el Loco Gringo

Introducing the metaphorical Charlie Chimp. He is on the cusp of becoming human, living in a world full of new and dangerous things. Having recently abandoned his arboreal existence, he now wanders the savannas of Africa with his mate Polly Protohuman. The behavior patterns he learned in the jungle no longer are effective on the open savanna. “A-hah! He says, I’ll evolve an ANN that can control algorithms. That way I’ll be able to deal with these new threats in a timely manner”. It is necessary to consider the anthropological origins of our behavior to understand why we behave as we do. After all, it is one thing to chuck rocks across a stream at a rival clan, it is quite another to chuck ICBMs across an ocean at a rival clan. Just as Charlie no longer lives in the jungle, we no longer live in the paleolithic. But we act as if we do. Heres a link to download naked ape. Still a good book.

“I am the expert on me” – el Loco Gringo

Should you trust your doctor?

Well, yes, with reservations. There are two experts in the room during an appointment. One is the doctor. The other is me. I know more about me than everyone else in the world. It is up to me whether to accept dogma or determine how to incorporate the information into my lifestyle. I must keep in mind that drug companies lie. They are protected by the FDA who are stooges of the corrupt politicians. The FDA also defines the prescription of these drugs as “standard medical practice” guaranteeing profits for the drug companies. They lie to the doctors who rely on the information given them. They lie by omission, by obfuscation, by misdirection. Thus the doctor is in a box. On the one hand they must exude confidence and on the other they are misinformed. Drug companies ALWAYS lie. Even if it’s not in their best interest. It’s pathological. It is up to you to help the doctor break out of his box. The following links should scare the shit out of you.

Thinking about Thinking

Down the rabbit hole

“We only think we’re thinking” – el Loco Gringo

Communication

Full communication requires all aspects of our perceptual input. IE body language; pictures, symbols,milieu, costume,not only movements, but ALL perceptual input; visual, olfactory, pressure etc. Take for example the concepts of love and hate. These are really not opposites but two sides of the same coin. Saying “I love you” in a pastoral setting while hugging them is a lot different that a memo that says “I love you”. Saying “I hate you” dressed in studded leather with a boiling pot of oil while beating you about the head and shoulders says a lot more than a memo that says the same. As each layer of input is removed, the content decreases. A teleconferencing call conveys less than a personal meeting. A telephone call less than a teleconferencing call, a handwritten note with love and kisses less than a telephone call. A memo less than a note.

 

This is what reductionist thinking has done to communication. It has stripped it of meaning. It’s the PTIB syndrome (Putting Things In Baskets) It is the specialist who learns more and more about less and less till you end up with someone who knows everything there is to know about nothing. The blind person who perceives the elephant by touching a single part, then publishes a paper using speculation to fill in the gaps. He can’t see the “Blue Sky”, He can’t see the big picture. The right brain thinker I would relate to a scientist, the whole brain to an engineer, and the left brain to a technician. This leads to bizarre constructs of knowledge. A psychologist knows everything there is to know about nothing. The same with a sociologist, financier, politician and all of the soft pseudosciences. It has been stripped of all meaning.

Keeping in mind that we only think we’re thinking. We actually are only giving a patterned response. Consider two people in a face to face conversation. All sensory data is present. A third party will see this as a ping pong game, in which pre-considered concepts are being fielded by the algorithms. There is no thinking going on. If there is not a hit on the algorithm (the concept hasn’t been pre-considered} He will access his data bank (3 seconds for left hemisphere, 3 seconds for right), the pattern reservoir for concepts. If he gets a hit he may respond with the best match to date, or he may ponder the concept, (He starts thinking) or put it off and “sleep on it”. The point of this rambling, incoherent diatribe is that until a datum is communicated, it is not real. IE it is not relevant to “coping with the world”. The act of communication makes the concept relevant to survival and will be considered. Once it is considered a trigger point will be set on the algorithm. When I am in the room with a doctor, for instance, I recognize that there are two experts in the room. While the doctor is the expert on health, I am the expert on me. Most people accept dogma, I consider it. I know more about me than anyone else in the world, and I am the best judge of how to incorporate these new concepts into my lifestyle.

Going Sideways

Home> el Loco Gringo

“I may be crazy, but everyone else is insane.” – el Loco Gringo

Going sideways is more than just a parlor trick to gain an entrance to the sub-conscious, It is a philosophy, a world view, a way of life. It is taking the path less traveled, pushing the envelope, reaching down inside yourself to pull out a greatness you didn’t know existed. To be more than you can be. To know that when you die the world will be a better place because you have lived in it. To witness the judges face when, after spending 3 days in jail for calling an asshole judge an asshole, you can say, “I wasn’t trying to insult you your honor, just informing you of a fact, no more, no less.”(one of the other inmates commented “Jesus, you called the judge an asshole? All I did was rob a convenience store. You bad, man.) Priceless! Knowing that I always tried to do the right thing, even when no-one was watching.

To know that no joke has been un-laughed at, no road un-traveled, no adventure un-taken, no joy un-celebrated, no sorrow un-mourned, no friend abandoned, no victim of injustice un-defended. To be proud of your children and doting on your grandchildren. To be able to pass on family traditions, like teaching him to write his name in the snow. He even crossed the t. I’m so proud. How to make that disgusting noise under his armpit with his palm that women hate. How to burp the first 12 notes of the “star spangled banner”. My daughter says I’m a bad influence on them, but she smiles when she says it. To hear her quote me to her kids, word for word, what I told her as a child.

Reading Ayn Rand opened my eyes to an explosion of opportunity. In my myopic male viewpoint on life I had been sniping assholes for years. With her female viewpoint a myriad of opportunities opened up. I can go after them all. In one swell foop.

Boxes


The PTIB Syndrome

“A word means what I intend it to mean, no more, no less” – The Mad Hatter

Little Boxes Weeds Single Story

Epistemology of PTIB compulsion

(Putting Things in Boxes)

Yes, Yes, Yes. Melvina could see the blue sky.  In reductionist thinking everything is put in little boxes and reduced to the least common denominator.  Look for wisdom in the arts.

Description; a debilitating mental disorder that cripples logic in the areas of psychology, law, morality, ethics, manners, politics, religion and race). Victims exhibit a compulsion to put things in baskets, even if they don’t belong. This seems to give them a sense of power, a misguided belief that they understand what is happening. It is delusional in nature.

History; Originating in the paleolithic (2.6 million years ago, pre human) Being eight sigma out non-victims are statistically insignificant and will not be considered. First identified in 1946.

Pathogen; Viral taboo on pride

Symptoms; Strong defense mechanism against logic and fact. Difficulty becoming centered.

Recent developments; Two alternate views, (A) people are stupid. (you can’t fix stupid. Stupid is forever.) (B)People are lazy, putting things in baskets so they don’t have to deal with them.

Summary; people are hazy, lazy or crazy

Prognosis; Not good

Treatment; QD Fix, a 50,000 yr old technique proven useful for begoning demons, letting out black bile, exorcizing, relieving sanguine, casting out Satan or centering depending on which era one is living in. It works as well today as it ever has. Retro-psycho-therapy if you will.

Conclusion; There has not been an advance in understanding of the mind for at least 2500 years (Plato). Old concepts are re-packaged and passed off as modern. Where is the Einstein of Psychology?

The Scientific Method

The bane of creativity

“that which causes ruin or woe”

Top Down thinking, Reductionist, left brain. This is the biggest impediment to thinking of all the boxes. It puts the mind in a box, delimits it, establishes an upper limit to knowledge, crushes creativity. Perfectly OK for the neolithic savannah, or a truth that is KNOWN and not a belief. But this thinking mode evolved when speed was important so as not to become lion lunch. Check out the recent upheaval in biology when the reality of epigenitics was established. The “truth” of DNA genetic encoding has proven to be bullshit. This is a major breakthrough that occurred in spite of, not because of the scientific method.   Epigenetics – The New Biology KeyToScience

The Echo Box


One of my favorites.  People can be surrounded by idiots in a group who echo their lies.  If it continues long enough they come to believe it themselves.  They are lying to themselves and they believe it.  Seek your own truth, that tiny voice peeping in the farthest corner of the box that says “They’re all full of shit”.  Be who you’re supposed to be, not who someone else wants you to be.  Learn to be alone without being lonely.  Travel the path less travelled.  Reach outside the box.  Color outside the lines.  Reach within and find yourself.  Swim against the current.  Refuse to live in this ant’s warren of a modern society. Refuse to live a meaningless life.  Refuse to live in the box.  Push the envelope.  Be somebody, not somebody else.   Path less traveled

The Word Box

Can words delimit and bias our thoughts?  Apparantly so according to one linguist.  This can make it almost impossible to transfer a concept from one person to another in it’s entirety.  The concept is stuffed into the box and the pieces hanging out are cut off.  Thus creativity is stifled again.  Einstein’s conception of the space time continuum could not be expressed in words, so he was reduced to using mathematics.  BTW, there is a school of philosophy which postulates that having a concept for which there are no words, is, in and of itself an indication of insanity.  WOW! And they think I’m crazy.

“The effect is powerful enough, she says, that “the private mental lives of speakers of different languages may differ dramatically,” not only when they are thinking in order to speak, “but in all manner of cognitive tasks,” including basic sensory perception. “Even a small fluke of grammar”—the gender of nouns—”can have an effect on how people think about things in the world,” – Lera Boroditsky

I have a friend, Hugo, hispanic with a limited english vocabulary. He had difficulty with the concept of silly. There is no word for silly in spanish, only stupido (stupid) after considerable time he snapped to the meaning and was delighted with the concept. What he snapped to was a football player running the wrong way with a ball is stupid, a football player in a tu tu running the wrong way is silly. It’s the kind of stupid that makes you smile. The concept spread to his family and friends. Even those who could not speak English were using it. I could hear silly in discussions in Spanish. Weird.

Previously I spent time in Singapore and was struck with the fact of the perceptual difference between the natives and occidentals. When I took my shirts to the cleaners, he asked if I wanted blue dye in them. “most Europeans want blue dye in their shirts” How odd. With only a little checking I found that the “whitening agent” used in detergents is in fact blue dye. You can actually see them, little blue beads among the flakes. To an oriental an occidentals white shirt has a blue tinge. To an occidental white looks “dingy”. Isn’t that peculiar?

In another incident my amah, Ah Soo, called me to the window to see a particularly striking rainbow, “the three colors are quite distinct”. Sorry, I see five. I looked it up and found there are supposed to be seven. Sorry, still only five. I did some asking around. When a rainbow appeared (there’s a lot of rainbows in Singapore, it’s a tropical country) I would ask a nearby person how many colors he saw. A European would say “seven” then “but this ones only got five”. An Chinese would say five, without hesitation and a Malay would say three without hesitation.

Interestingly, the Malay language is primative, having no written language they have no word for book.  So the borrowed the english word as buka, since they can only count to 3 a book is buka, books are buka, buka, and a library is buka, buka, buka.  They can’t conceptualize 4 of anything.  Hence 3 colors in the rainbow.   What’s in a word?

Tunnel Vision

Yet another impediment to perception is tunnel vision.  Our culture, upbringing, education limit our view of the world.  Whereas we have difficulty with the measurement problem in quantum physics, the oriental mind has no problem visualizing an object being in several places at the same time.  Robert Anton says a mouthful.

Robert Anton explains this very well in the below video.  He speaks of tunneling and how the oriental and the occidental view life through tunnels which restrict our field of view.  Our opinions say more about how the mind works than the world.  It is worth pondering what he has to say about not only quantum physics but our view of the world.

Einstein’s thoughts on the matter were exposed when he asked a prominent quantum physicist “Do you really believe that when you’re not looking at the moon, it’s not there?” Robert Anton – Tunneling

Plantation Think

Another debilitating disorder that only affects blacks and only in America. It is of the boomerang variety, no matter where the conversation goes, it always comes back. The TMI block for this disorder is usually “you can’t understand what it’s like to be black” The military uses a broad spectrum QD Fix to adjust the attitude not only for blacks, but for a wide variety of mental aberrations. It is usually administered within the first five minutes of the recruits arriving at boot camp. Although heavy handed and crude, it appears to provide a lifetime immunity to the disorder. Approximately 30% of the victims mental capacities is devoted to maintaining the defense mechanism resulting in, among other things, lower scores on IQ tests, poor job performance, low self esteem etc. Any attempts to rectify the situation evoke a collective violent defense mechanism of “racism”. This is just another situation of black assholes exploiting the hole in the soul.  Understand that this is a racist attack, precluding communication.

Oddly enough, studies show that black children reflect mainstream attitudes. IE blacks, for the most part, hold the same attitudes as whites.

Oddly enough, this is a real mental disorder and there’s no basket for it.

The QD Fix is quite effective in treating it and establishing a defense mechanism against assholes.   Military QD Fix Nigger

The TMI Block

Used to stop dialogue, usually one of the taboos.

The Norman Block

In 1066 England was conquered by Normandy.  The ruling class was replaced with French counterparts.  This had a profound effect on language.  Beouf, for instance, means cattle in French.  But it came to mean steak in English.  Peasants eat cattle, the upper class eats beef.  Also the circumloqutious manner of speaking.  For instance, the phrase “Your child is not performing to his full potential.” (French word structure) instead of the english “Your kid could do better”  This is how the professions maintain their grip on power IE they have a secret language that the peasants  (that’s you) do not understand.  There is nothing really profound in the concepts of the professions.  It is the language use which obfuscates what they are saying.  They hide the truth with their oblique language.  Consider George Carlins “7 words you can’t say on TV”.  These words are considered to be vulgar.  But they’re not really vulgar, (they are perfectly valid English words used for thousands of years) they are low class (peasant talk).  One would be hard pressed to determine whether  a couple is “making love” or “fucking”.

Sex; Sounds simple enough

  1. Insert tab A in slot B
  2. Push
  3. Pull
  4. Repeat as necessary

It’s a lot of fun too (if memory serves me correctly). Beyond taking a few common sense precautions, such as don’t excite the children, don’t scare the horses (if you don’t care about walking home go ahead and scare the horses), have fun kids, enjoy. Why then, when one goes to a sex therapist, does one get a TMI block?

You see Dr. every time I want to have sex with my ….”

We need to get back to the issue at hand, which is your emotional relationships”

How can you talk about sex without talking about sex? Rather than address the issue directly they dance around it, using a complex, convoluted, devious, Byzantine labyrinth of illogic to avoid addressing the issue directly. Why does anyone care? Without the taboo, they wouldn’t need a sex therapist.

This is a dysfunctional vestige of our proto-human heritage where the dominant male got all the poontang and the subservient male ended up tossing off. But we don’t live in the neolithic anymore. 7 Dirty Words

The Aware Mind


The Forever War

is over

We’ve won

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

Encoded in the genes of every species on earth, is the mandate to reproduce, go forth and multiply, replicate, destroy all competition, dominate all resources.  It is the forever war.  We have won.  It is time to be magnanimous to the vanquished.  To become the steward of all we have vanquished.

Unlike any other species, we are aware.  We are aware of ourselves and our environment.  We are aware of the consequences of our actions.  But we are poisoning the well.  Both of the environment and of ourselves.    In Africa 17% of the land is un-developed, in North America it’s 28%, in Europe it’s 3 %.

I am aware that every time I crank up my car, a child who was on the edge of survival in some third world country, dies.  I am aware that every time I buy a 2X4 at Home Depot, habitat is destroyed for some endangered species.  We have “gone forth and multiplied” enough.  Reducing carbon footprint isn’t the answer.  Nor is recycling, nor biofuels, nor waste management.  Nor any of the panaceas being touted.   there’s just too many people.   We are overloading the biosphere

Society needs someone at the helm of the boat who can see “the big picture” (a non-idiot) and not just play dot2dot on a upward trend.. All civilizations collapse. Always have, always will. Including this one. The history of civilization is actually not a gradual rise, but a sawtooth that never quite falls as far as the previous low. It is not a gradual upward trend. But this one is different. Our technology has allowed us to strip mine the earth in a manner that may make it uninhabitable on even a hunter/gatherer level. When this one goes down, it goes down all the way. And there will not be another industrial civilization until the tectonic plates recycle the resources. (that’s a long time in case you’re not into tectonics) The brain fart prevents people from seeing the “big picture”.

Duality


Working the logic both ways

The basic premise (my truth) is that we have two cognitive minds which give us two perspectives on the world. We project these perspectives onto whatever we perceive and see giving us the illusion that the world is of a dual nature. These two perspectives are not two sides of the same coin but the same side of the same coin, the other side being reality. Yin IS the right mind’s perspective. Yang IS the left minds perspective.

Consider Chinese medicine in which the object is to balance the Qi to the Yin and the Yang. Another aspect of the difference between Oriental and Western medicine can be described as Oriental treats the Yang and Western treats the Yin. Everything in the universe can be described in terms of Yin or Yang. This is one of the underlying philosophies of Oriental Medicine. Yin is the feminine qualities in the universe, Yang is the masculine qualities.

Consider sight, this right side of this graphic illustrates what is happening in the right mind, (perception) an ever present “now”. The left side illustrates what is happening in the left mind, an interpretation which discards the “now” and adds time and color so as to better “make sense of” motion. Neither of these perspectives is reality but only a perception and interpretation of reality.

Consider society. In western society we have the hipostatized belief in the state and it’s institutions, ignoring the self as constitute part of the whole. In eastern society there is a hipostatized belief in the self, ignoring the whole. It would seem that a definition of civilization would be the ability of the hyper-males to shut down one of the minds, creating a permanent “slave” class. (idiots). In the west is the aristotelean brain fart, in the east the taoist brain fart. Acculturation IS indocrination. Now it is education in earlier times it was religion.

Consider world view, the lion and the lamb exist within all of us, and one or the other must be shut down by the hyper-males to maintain control, and keep primacy in the banana and poon-tang receiving departments. Either top down or bottom up thinking must be shut down, so as to imprint a cultural view in which a hipostatized belief system can replace one or the other mind’s interpretation of reality. While we are part of the state, the state is the summation of us, maintaining it’s illusory reality.

Consider calculus. Integral calculus IS bottom up thinking as applied to euclidean geometry. Differential calculus IS top down thinking as applied to euclidean geometry. BUT euclidean geometry ain’t real, but only an interpretation of a perception of reality which also ain’t real. This is why Milo wolf was able to come to a better understanding of the nature of the universe, he used algebra, eschewing calculus. Or consider Ted Lumley’s question “is space making electrons or are electrons making space” YES!!! Space IS the summation of electrons. An interesting possibility is vector calculus. hyperphysics Wild Joyride

This holds true for any view of any problem. We project this dual view of reality onto reality, whereas, in fact, no duality exists. The Aristotelian brain fart. brain-fart

The point of this rambling incoherent dissertation is that the logic must be worked both ways. Consider the image, the ocean causes the waves, BUT the waves constitute the ocean. The waves and the ocean are only two perspectives of the sea, BOTH entirely inside the skull. Without the waves, the ocean cannot exist. Without the ocean the waves cannot exist. non-dualism

So I call reality (or any system) the “big hoochie koochie” composed of “little hoochie koochies”. The logic must be worked both ways.

This is something you might be interested in. an exerpt. Still trying to figure you out. (my neurons are hungry and must be fed.)

>Actually, this is true because the Indians are using categorization itself (like George Lakoff’s *Women, Fire, and Dangerous Things* as a lexical category in Dyrbal), while metaphor is a different kind of categorizing used extensively — some might say nearly exclusively — in Western European and other languages, and which they like to fancy is universal. While all of us have been subtly conditioned/brainwashed/socialized by our European language/culture complex (Imprinted) to believe in the “things” of reality as being more real than the invisible connections between them, valuing the dancers over the dancing, it’s a highly important antidote and counterbalance to know that Native American and other indigenous peoples value the dancing over the dancers, believe that processes and interrelationships are more real than the ‘things’ that grow out of them — that the physical is an epiphenomenon of the non-physical, and that cyclical timing is more real than linear time. We need both descriptions for a complete picture of how reality works for everyone, as well how language works for everyone, on this planet.< Dan Moonhawk Alford.

AHA! notice the bold, this is how you think. concepts instead of symbols serial/parallel instead of binary/boolean. He thinks in the top down/bottom up method typical of western civilization however. (he doesn’t have the amerind imprinting, [if valid, i’ve only got a database of one.]) He’s a linguist so he might have much to say in re communication.

Yeah, I thought you might resonate with moonhawk. If he doesn’t want to restart the forum you can. Get permission to use his emails.

i was going to suggest an ‘epilogue’ instead of going back to the beginning and telling the reader where i was going to end up. sherlock holmes does many strange things in the course of his inquiry that don’t make sense until the viewer gets to see the ‘missing connections’, as in the epilogue where the detective brings everyone together and then reveals ‘who the culprit is’.

there would be no point in sherlock stating his hypothesis upfront. he would do better to invent some inquiry that would be ‘telling’ so as to validate his hypothesis without ever stating it, then each of the anecdotes that support the still unseen hypothesis build support for it, … support that would nto be there if the participants had not curiously observed these apparent ‘diversions’.

Well, there you go big guy. There’s your beginning. (a prelogue) A prologue would address DrB’s concerns and maintain the integrity of your thought process. In the final anaylsis we are all ignorant, only the wise admit it. There is no TRUTH, there is only truth. In reality, Dunno. But we can get less dunno if we admit it. We can sneak up on it. Orientals think occidentals think backwards. IE start with the conclusion and work our way back to the question. I agree. Note I was just passing on DrB’s comment. I use learn as a transitive verb, as in “I’m going to learn you something.” I present data and evidence, say what I think about it and invite criticism. It is this lack of communication in education that imprints the Aristotelian brain fart during the “critical stage” of children’s education.

“It makes sense to me…….does it to you?”

Which is what SH is doing. By comparing “patterns” we can see “ that curious incident in the night” the dog that didn’t bark (silver flash) something that should be there but isn’t. This “curious incident in the night” is in EVERYTHING in western civilization.

Gregory (Scotland Yard detective): “Is there any other point to which you would wish to draw my attention?”
Holmes: “To the curious incident of the dog in the night-time.”
Gregory: “The dog did nothing in the night-time.”
Holmes: “That was the curious incident.”

By pointing out the disjunct in the pattern, the answer “snapped” into place. That’s actually where I got the word SNAP, a person with SNAP (a Nexialist) can correlate many seemingly unrelated patterns to discern an overall rule. (shortcut) Then this “odd” pattern can be examined to find out why. THIS is what is missing in western civilization. The lack of SNAP IS the dog that didn’t bark. Something that should be there but isn’t . This is why people are dumb. THIS is the hurdle you must overcome in communication.

The algorithms (outputs) of the left mind and the right mind are compared, and if they disagree the “Does Not Compare” detector will (should) go off. This is what is not happening. This is the dog that doesn’t bark. This is the curious incident in the night. This lack of “does not compute” defines an idiot. The wires to this alarm have been cut by education.

Here’s one of my alarms> The man who isn’t there

Somebody’s nibbling on my site again, probably from SAND. (I just sent them something) I notice an odd pattern. Most people click through, and occasionally someone will read 20 or 30 pages. A few have spidered my site. As people who “go off the reservation” are stigmatized, anonymity is a problem. Maybe talk to Mr. Geoff about a proxy for gentlemen.

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)

“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.

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.

Somehow we’ve got to get from colum A to column B

 

  • The cosmos is made up of mostly dead matter and empty space and is not “alive.”

  • Our cosmos is a unique kind of “living organism” and, as a whole system, is fundamentally alive.

  • We are floating through vast reaches of empty space, and most of life seems to lack any larger sense of meaning and purpose.

  • The entire cosmos is a unified system. Each action is woven into the deep ecology of the universe. Everything we do matters.

  • Consciousness– when viewed from a reductionist, mechanistic perspective — is a byproduct of biochemistry and is located in the brain.

  • Consciousness-when viewed from an integrative, living systems perspective-is an ordinary capacity that permeates the universe and provides a reflective capability appropriate to each entity within the universe.

  • The goal in life is material success and social achievement.

  • The goal in life is to develop a balanced relationship between our inner and outer lives-to live in a way that is sustainable and compassionate.

  • The emphasis is on conspicuous consumption. The “good life” depends on having enough money to buy access to pleasures and avoid discomforts.

  • The emphasis is on conscious consumption. The “good life” is an ever-changing balance of inner and outer, material and spiritual, personal and social, etc.

  • Identity is largely defined by material possessions and social position.

  • Our sense of self grows through our conscious, loving, and creative participation in life.

  • Emphasis is on personal autonomy and mobility.

  • Emphasis is on personal growth and community.

  • The individual is defined by his or her body and is ultimately separate and alone.

  • The individual is both unique and an inseparable part of the larger universe. Our being is not limited to our physical existence.

  • It is natural that we who are living use lifeless material resources for our own progress.

  • It is natural to respect all that exists as integral to the larger body of life.

  • Cutthroat competition is the norm. You compete against others to make a killing.

  • Fair competition is the norm. You cooperate with others to earn a living.

  • The mass media are dominated by commercial interests and are used to promote a high-consumption culture.

  • The mass media awaken to the challenge of sustainability and begin to explore more workable and meaningful approaches to living.

  • Nations adopt a “lifeboat ethic” in global relations.

  • Nations adopt a “spaceship Earth ethic” in global relations.

  • The welfare of the whole is left to the workings of the free market or government bureaucracies.

  • Each person takes responsibility for the well-being of the world, enabling high levels of decentralization and freedom at the local level, and a sustainable harmony at the global level.

Oranges


Orange NOT

Mixing Oranges and Orangutans

If you look up orangutan, you will find that it means man of the forest, old man in the woods, little man. That’s not what Ah So says (my amah in Singapore). And she’s malay, so I’ll take her word over all the zoologists. You see, malays can’t see orange as a distinct color. It’s between two colors that I, as an occidental can’t see. She also only sees 3 colors in the rainbow, as do all malays. To a malay, orange is an abstract concept. Like bleem, “The secret integer between three and four.” SecretNumber Going off on a tangent, pi (perimeter) and phi (golden ratio), are abstract concepts to the european. However, phi is not an abstract concept to the african worldview and pi may not be abstract to the amerind. Weird. So they borrowed a word from english, to name this artifical color (to them) and cocatonated it with utan, or man. So the word really means orange man (or actually, between color A and color B man). I’ve seen speculation that when the locals speak of “little man” they might be talking about Flories man, the hobbit. Nope! it’s the orangutan. Prior to this made up word, to them, they use the terms little man, old man etc. Which are really just different tranliterations of the word utan. It doesn’t translate exactly. It seems that malays can speak better malay than anthropologists. So mixing oranges and orangutans isn’t that far off. As an aside malays don’t think of them themselves as Malay ethnically but part of the Austronesian family. Conceptualizing something for which a mental framework does not exist is a major problem both in thinking and language. Meditate on bleem and see what I mean. The mind can’t get any traction. Yet maybe there’s a value between 3 and 4 that IS significant. consider pi at 3.1416 and phi at 1.6180. Hmm!

Nexialist


The Ken Basket

Nexialist is a term coined by A E van Vogt in his novel “Voyage of the space beagle”. You can download this and other works of AE van Vogt below

Nexialist: One skilled in the science of joining together in an orderly fashion the knowledge of one field of learning with that of other fields.

The problems which Nexialism confronts are whole problems. Man has divided life and matter into separate compartments of knowledge and being. And, even though he sometimes uses words which indicate his awareness of that wholeness of nature, he con­tinues to behave as if the one, changing universe has many separately functioning parts. The techniques we will discuss tonight….”

He paused. He had been looking out over his audience, and his gaze had suddenly fastened on a familiar figure well to the rear of the room. After a moment’s hesitation, Grosvenor went on.

“….will show how this disparity between reality and man’s be­havior can be overcome.”

He went on to describe the techniques, and in the back of the room Gregory Kent took his first notes on the science of Nexialism.

And, carrying its little bit of human civilization, the expeditionary ship Space Beagle sped at an ever increasing velocity through a night that had no end.

And no beginning.

The Flight of the Beagle

Hmmm! Sounds like what I call normal, what maslow called transcendent.

the adjective transcendental and the noun transcendence convey three different but somehow related primary meanings, all of them derived from the word’s literal meaning , of climbing or going beyond:

one sense that originated in Ancient philosophy, a non-material self-consciousness that is outside of the world

one in Medieval philosophy, the characteristics, designated transcendentals, of unity, truth, and goodness.

one in modern philosophy. that, which goes beyond” (transcends) any possible knowledge of a human being

Keeping in mind that these are word games, I just like to stick to the basic concept of transcendence. That which goes beyond. Beyond what, you may ask? Dunno, if we knew it wouldn’t be beyond. It’s beyond my ken, the range of what one can know or understand. or anyone’s, unless you’re God. If any of you are God do leave a comment.

As van Vogt correctly deduced the scientific method has divided the world up and put the results in various baskets. I would like to add another basket to AE’s definiton, the ken basket. Our connectness with the universe. sometimes we know more than the sum of all the baskets. I’ll put two examples here and leave myself open. (asperataSupra and Dart)  AEvVogt always is thought provoking.  The world of null-A is also good.

A Band of Chimps

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

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.

There is a story of a young, but earnest Zen student who approached his teacher, and asked the Master, “If I work very hard and diligently, how long will it take for me to find Zen? The Master thought about this, then replied, “Ten years . .” The student then said, “But what if I work very, very hard and really apply myself to learn fast — How long then?” Replied the Master, “Well, twenty years.” “But, if I really, really work at it, how long then?” asked the student. “Thirty years,” replied the Master. “But, I do not understand,” said the disappointed student. “At each time that I say I will work harder, you say it will take me longer. Why do you say that?” Replied the Master, “When you have one eye on the goal, you only have one eye on the path.”

This is the dilemma I’ve faced within the American education system. We are so focused on a goal, whether it be passing a test, or graduating as first in the class. However, in this way, we do not really learn. We do whatever it takes to achieve our original objective.

Some of you may be thinking, “Well, if you pass a test, or become valedictorian, didn’t you learn something? Well, yes, you learned something, but not all that you could have. Perhaps, you only learned how to memorize names, places, and dates to later on forget in order to clear your mind for the next test. School is not all that it can be. Right now, it is a place for most people to determine that their goal is to get out as soon as possible.

I am now accomplishing that goal. I am graduating. I should look at this as a positive experience, especially being at the top of my class. However, in retrospect, I cannot say that I am any more intelligent than my peers. I can attest that I am only the best at doing what I am told and working the system. Yet, here I stand, and I am supposed to be proud that I have completed this period of indoctrination. I will leave in the fall to go on to the next phase expected of me, in order to receive a paper document that certifies that I am capable of work. But I contest that I am a human being, a thinker, an adventurer – not a worker. A worker is someone who is trapped within repetition – a slave of the system set up before him.But now, I have successfully shown that I was the best slave. I did what I was told to the extreme. While others sat in class and doodled to later become great artists, I sat in class to take notes and become a great test-taker. While others would come to class without their homework done because they were reading about an interest of theirs, I never missed an assignment. While others were creating music and writing lyrics, I decided to do extra credit, even though I never needed it. So, I wonder, why did I even want this position? Sure, I earned it, but what will come of it? When I leave educational institutionalism, will I be successful or forever lost? I have no clue about what I want to do with my life; I have no interests because I saw every subject of study as work, and I excelled at every subject just for the purpose of excelling, not learning. And quite frankly, now I’m scared.

John Taylor Gatto, a retired school teacher and activist critical of compulsory schooling, asserts, “We could encourage the best qualities of youthfulness – curiosity, adventure, resilience, the capacity for surprising insight simply by being more flexible about time, texts, and tests, by introducing kids into truly competent adults, and by giving each student what autonomy he or she needs in order to take a risk every now and then. But we don’t do that.” Between these cinderblock walls, we are all expected to be the same. We are trained to ace every standardized test, and those who deviate and see light through a different lens are worthless to the scheme of public education, and therefore viewed with contempt.

H. L. Mencken wrote in The American Mercury for April 1924 that the aim of public education is not “to fill the young of the species with knowledge and awaken their intelligence. … Nothing could be further from the truth. The aim … is simply to reduce as many individuals as possible to the same safe level, to breed and train a standardized citizenry, to put down dissent and originality. That is its aim in the United States.”

To illustrate this idea, doesn’t it perturb you to learn about the idea of “critical thinking.” Is there really such a thing as “uncritically thinking?” To think is to process information in order to form an opinion. But if we are not critical when processing this information, are we really thinking? Or are we mindlessly accepting other opinions as truth?

This was happening to me, and if it wasn’t for the rare occurrence of an avant-garde tenth grade English teacher, Donna Bryan, who allowed me to open my mind and ask questions before accepting textbook doctrine, I would have been doomed. I am now enlightened, but my mind still feels disabled. I must retrain myself and constantly remember how insane this ostensibly sane place really is.

And now here I am in a world guided by fear, a world suppressing the uniqueness that lies inside each of us, a world where we can either acquiesce to the inhuman nonsense of corporatism and materialism or insist on change. We are not enlivened by an educational system that clandestinely sets us up for jobs that could be automated, for work that need not be done, for enslavement without fervency for meaningful achievement. We have no choices in life when money is our motivational force. Our motivational force ought to be passion, but this is lost from the moment we step into a system that trains us, rather than inspires us.

We are more than robotic bookshelves, conditioned to blurt out facts we were taught in school. We are all very special, every human on this planet is so special, so aren’t we all deserving of something better, of using our minds for innovation, rather than memorization, for creativity, rather than futile activity, for rumination rather than stagnation? We are not here to get a degree, to then get a job, so we can consume industry-approved placation after placation. There is more, and more still.

The saddest part is that the majority of students don’t have the opportunity to reflect as I did. The majority of students are put through the same brainwashing techniques in order to create a complacent labor force working in the interests of large corporations and secretive government, and worst of all, they are completely unaware of it. I will never be able to turn back these 18 years. I can’t run away to another country with an education system meant to enlighten rather than condition. This part of my life is over, and I want to make sure that no other child will have his or her potential suppressed by powers meant to exploit and control. We are human beings. We are thinkers, dreamers, explorers, artists, writers, engineers. We are anything we want to be – but only if we have an educational system that supports us rather than holds us down. A tree can grow, but only if its roots are given a healthy foundation.

For those of you out there that must continue to sit in desks and yield to the authoritarian ideologies of instructors, do not be disheartened. You still have the opportunity to stand up, ask questions, be critical, and create your own perspective. Demand a setting that will provide you with intellectual capabilities that allow you to expand your mind instead of directing it. Demand that you be interested in class. Demand that the excuse, “You have to learn this for the test” is not good enough for you.Education is an excellent tool, if used properly, but focus more on learning rather than getting good grades.

For those of you that work within the system that I am condemning, I do not mean to insult; I intend to motivate. You have the power to change the incompetencies of this system. I know that you did not become a teacher or administrator to see your students bored. You cannot accept the authority of the governing bodies that tell you what to teach, how to teach it, and that you will be punished if you do not comply. Our potential is at stake.

For those of you that are now leaving this establishment, I say, do not forget what went on in these classrooms. Do not abandon those that come after you. We are the new future and we are not going to let tradition stand. We will break down the walls of corruption to let a garden of knowledge grow throughout America. Once educated properly, we will have the power to do anything, and best of all, we will only use that power for good, for we will be cultivated and wise. We will not accept anything at face value. We will ask questions, and we will demand truth.

So, here I stand. I am not standing here as valedictorian by myself. I was molded by my environment, by all of my peers who are sitting here watching me. I couldn’t have accomplished this without all of you. It was all of you who truly made me the person I am today. It was all of you who were my competition, yet my backbone. In that way, we are all valedictorians.

I am now supposed to say farewell to this institution, those who maintain it, and those who stand with me and behind me, but I hope this farewell is more of a “see you later” when we are all working together to rear a pedagogic movement. But first, let’s go get those pieces of paper that tell us that we’re smart enough to do so!

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

HOCM


Athletes Heart

Hypertropic Obstructive
Cardio Myopathy

…………………………………..

I’d like to talk about a subject that’s near and dear to my heart. In more ways than one. What motivates me is the recent sudden death of a teenage athlete. That’s his picture upper left. This affliction is known as athletes heart because states require an autopsy for deaths occurring on state property (Colleges, High School, Grammer School)

Reggie Garrett, the senior quarterback for West Orange-Stark High School in Orange, Texas, collapsed on the sideline during a game Friday night and later died at a local hospital, according to reports. FanHouse BleacherReport There is a slide show at the bottom of Bleacher Report. Look for “beta blocker”. This is a class of drugs normally prescribed for HOCM.

HOCM is a genetic disorder caused by genotype DD (dominant). It is rare only .5% of the population. The left ventricle closes under stress. Heart There is a simple test to check for this disorder, which is disapproved by the FDA, who feel the 10 seconds required for the test could be better spent pushing pills which generate profit, even though they have known serious side effects. Statins The FDA has a policy known as “approved medical practice”. Doctors who do not follow this policy can be disciplined or even loose their license. Genotype DD comes with a suite of symptoms HOCM, diabetes, high blood pressure, hypertension and suseptibility to statins which big Pharm can make money on. The test would bring the condition to light and Big Pharm couldn’t make money by prescribing death causing drugs. So we have a situation in which doctors are forbidden from performing a test which would help and forced to prescribe drugs which will kill. Try to understand what I’m saying here folks. If this is what happened to garrett this is;

1st degree murder is the unlawful killing of another human being with “malice aforethought”.

But why aren’t the directors of Pfizer and the FDA on death row, you may ask? Because the FDA is a private organization, staffed by big pharm, given the power of government by your beloved congress. And we all trust congress don’t we? A suit was brought on this issue. Testemony was not even heard. The case was sumarily dismissed in a manner that precluded future suits. And we all trust lawyers, don’t we?

As to me, at 70, I’m probably the oldest person in the world with known HOCM. They usually die in their teens. The first, and last, symptom of HOCM is death. Of course, it’s hard to tell, the FDA forbids testing for the condition, and we all trust the FDA don’t we? The test amounts to listening to a patient’s heartbeat (Q4) while sitting, then standing. “The Valsalva maneuver decreases preload, which results in decreased filling of the left ventricle.” – Cleveland clinic.

Here’s a good layman’s booklet in PDF format>HOCM.pdf

That’s a real HOCM scan at the top of the page, by the way.

I would suggest all parents have the Valsalva test performed on their children by a private physician, we all trust government, don’t we?

Simply put, an s4 murmer is indicative of a non compliant ventricular valve.

CT/RT Survival value


RT/CT

Survival Value

This may come as a shock, but I am beginning to think that I may have been wrong. If true, this will be a first. I had made the comment “I don’t see the survival value in dumb”. But there may have been at one time in our evolution. Think of Ardi (creationists worst nightmare, we didn’t evolve from chimps, chimps evolved from us) in the paleolithic conscious constructionist thinking (CT) would have a definite negative survival value. Ergo selection (or de-selection if you prefer) would have favored restricting constructionist thinking to the un-conscious, ie dreaming. This is no longer the case, however.

Consider;
CT requires the ability to hold several seemingly disparate concepts in the mind simultaneously. Not to be confused with the Orwellian “double think” in which several actually disparate and mutually exclusive concepts can be held in the mind comfortably. For instance, accepting the data presented in ratbrain-2 and and the tenets of psychology simultaneously strikes me as insane. One of them is obviously WRONG, For instance; I worked with a geophysical company that was manned by fundamentalists. They “knew” the earth was created 4,000 years ago. That was a “truth”. At the same time their job consisted of classifying rotifers to properly determine how many millions of years ago a geological structure was formed. That was also a “truth”. When queried they responded “I couldn’t understand secular humanism” (They’re right on that.) Think of CT as parallel processing. Hold that thought.
Reductionist Thinking limits the answer to what is actually “the best answer to date” as determined by CT, it dictates a single answer or conclusion for rapid response. It is not THE truth, but only A truth. One of many. Think of RT as serial processing. Hold that thought.
I am aware of only a handful of people who are capable of “switch hitting” IE volitionally able to go from RT to CT. Hold that thought.
CT is described as an “enhanced state” of consciousness. I don’t see it that way, it’s only different from RT. Hold that thought.
Many meditative techniques claim to enable one to enter this enhanced state, probably true, what they describe is what I experience. A sense of being one with the universe, (as perceived by me) a connectedness with my fellow man, a wholeness. Hold that thought.
One difference between RT and CT is that with RT you may “know” the answer but with CT you “understand” the question. BIG difference. Hold that thought.
As soon as my mind determines that the RT “truth” is bullshit it switches to CT (if I’m interested) else I just change the subject or inform them they are an idiot. Hold that thought.
I am aware of my mind, In the sense I am aware of any part of my body. I understand this is unusual. Hold that thought.

Consider the video on Jill Taylor “A stroke of insight”. She was a neuroscientist who was forcibly dumped into CT (right hemisphere) by a stroke which disabled much of her left hemisphere. (her mind went to “plan B”). She eloquently and effusively describes her experience, one result of which was an “explosion” of creativity. Consider, she was a person who had studied the workings of the mind for 30 years AND WAS NOT EVEN AWARE THAT THAT LEVEL OF CONSCIOUSNESS EXISTED. WOW! She “knew” the answer before, she “understands” the question now. (you’ve got to ask the right question if you expect a reasonable answer). She is now a “switch hitter”, she can step into either mode of thought. She describes the experience as “overpowering”. It’s not, she’s just never been there before. It’s just CT thinking, asking the right question.

And where was I wrong? Dumb has an inherited component.

I am beginning to view psychology as a mental disorder in and of itself. I would define derailment as the inability of a reductionist thinking psychologist to follow a constructionist thought pattern. I don’t see the ambiguity in the first example, I wouldn’t have noticed it as being odd. The second seems flaky, but I don’t know what he was thinking, (I wasn’t there). (I’m not saying that the constructionist thinker is right, only that he doesn’t accept the goal as fact)

Derailment (thought disorder)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In psychiatry, derailment (also loosening of association, asyndesis, asyndetic thinking, knight’s move thinking, or entgleisen) refers to a pattern of discourse (in speech or writing) that is a sequence of unrelated or only remotely related ideas. The frame of reference often changes from one sentence to the next.[1][2] Examples:

  • “The next day when I’d be going out you know, I took control, like uh, I put bleach on my hair in California.”—given by Nancy C. Andreasen[3]
  • “The traffic is rumbling along the main road. They are going to the north. Why do girls always play pantomime heroes.”— given by Carl Schneider[2]

In a mild manifestation, this thought disorder is characterized by slippage of ideas further and further from the point of a discussion. Some of the synonyms given above (loosening of association, asyndetic thinking) are used by some authors to refer just to a loss of goal: discourse that sets off on a particular idea, wonders off and never returns to it. A related term is tangentiality— it refers to off-the-point, oblique or irrelevant answers given to questions.[1]

Entgleisen (derailment in German) was first used with this meaning by Carl Schneider in 1930.[2] The term asyndesis was introduced by N. Cameron in 1938, while loosening of association was introduced by A. Bleuler in 1950.[4] The phrase knight’s move thinking was first used in the context of pathological thinking by the psychologist Peter McKellar in 1957, who hypothesized that schizophrenics fail to suppress divergent associations.[5] In some studies on creativity, knight’s move thinking, while it describes a similarly loose association of ideas, is not considered a mental disorder or the hallmark of one; it is sometimes used as a synonym for lateral thinking.[5][6][7] Derailment was used with this meaning by Kurt Schneider in 1959.[4]

For instance; My ex-brother had a complaint filed against him for sexual harassment and was considering whether to led it slide or fight it aggressively. I made the comment, “you can’t leave yourself vulnerable, you can’t get away with doing nothing wrong twice”. (I suppose that would be viewed as “insane”, I don’t know, that’s what el Loco Gringo’s for) He was totally baffled until I explained it. What I meant was that if he let it slide, he would have a history of having sexual harassment complaints filed against him, which would come up again, and be considered, if another complaint were filed. His thought process precluded him seeing the big picture. He fought it aggressively and it turned out that the complaintant had been using these false claims to advance her career. (see, they do look at the history) By fighting it aggressively, he forced the issue, and it was resolved permanently (for him and several others, who chose to let it slide). The rule works both ways.

As I am not interested in genetics I had accepted DNA theory as valid. (it seemed reasonable) The same with evolution. Both theories have been smashed. They are even calling the DNA theory “the old dogma” in the textbooks. But the same pattern will re-establish itself and the “truth” of epigenetics will be the new “truth”. As will Ardi, when in fact, they are nothing but the best answer to date. The field of quantum physics is near collapse (or at least in an uproar) with the Lisi dudecohedron (D8) TOE. The debate is centering around the math. But reality doesn’t care about math. If the math does not agree with reality, the math is wrong. (Now THAT would be interesting.)

******Top down thinking is for implementing “the best answer to date” quickly, not for discovering new “truths”******

Ponder?


Why would you want to ponder anything? Unless there are time constraints, of course. It’s a waste of your awake time. Let the ANN handle it, that’s what its for. Your awake time is better spent watching out for lions and looking under rocks for grubs to eat. Occasionally a question will arise, that’s the ANN saying it is missing some data. NOW you do the research and allow the ANN to get back to pondering. When finished you will not only know the answer, you will understand it. The mind is POWERFUL if you don’t cripple it.

If the question is from the left hemisphere it will be in verbal form, if from the right in visual form. For instance, the image surfaced of you drawing squigglies with your left hand. The right hemisphere of the ANN wanted to know if you were left handed. I asked, the image went away.

Almost everything I am saying requires constructionist thinking. Do not try to understand or organize it as you are reading, consider it data input only. The ANN will sort it out in a manner that it can understand. AND it can do it in the background. The left hemisphere will soon get bored trying to make sense of what it considers drivel and will let the right hemisphere take over. The mere act of inputing data with the understanding that it will come up later, gets it past the doorman. It becomes relevant to interfacing with the world and can be collated. Once it is communicated and the response received, it becomes “set”.

This is the beauty of bottom up thinking, it works off-line.

Notice the eyes on the image above. I bet if the pupils were shifted to (her) right she would appear sinister (scheming). See “Left hand of ANN” and consider the implications. Left handed people are under a considerable disadvantage in our society.

Autistic? Savant


“We have two cognitive minds each with it’s own logical and perceptual processing, synchronous and modulated by intensity. (weighting)” – el Loco GringoAutistic ; a counterfeit concept.  Something defined by what it is not.  Defined in my terms it means “something unknown is wrong with the right mind or something unknown is wrong with the left mind, or something unknown is wrong with an unknown mind”  The scientific method at it’s best.  Crisp thinking.    Psychologists are idiots.  I pulled this from wikipedia.  I agree with this part “Savant syndrome is poorly understood”. The rest is bullshit.

Savant; Ah, now here’s something I can wrap my head around.  I think it’s safe to say it’s what is mistakenly called the subconscious.  I liken it to a puppy, not too bright, eager to please and with enormous collating abilities.  (more than it should have, actually)  Capable of bottom up thinking.

Idiot Savant; Aha! My puppy is wagging it’s tail, my pop peeper went ka-ching, “you’ve got mail”  A correlation has been made.  Do the word “feral children” ring a bell?  Point your peepers at this> Stupid is forever Feral children did not get imprinted during the critical period, no neuron trellis.

While researching savant I ran across this guyDr . Lee E. Warren, B.A., D.D.

Exerpt: What is an idiot savant?  Current research theories show that intelligence is non-local and not bound to the brain. Sometimes nature offers insight into a particular subject by presenting a baffling enigma and contradictory example. Intelligence’s contradictory enigma is the idiot-savant.

The word idiot usually refers to a simpleton, in contrast to the word “savant” in French that means “learned one.” Idiot savants are a subgroup of a class of people called idiots with an IQ of about 25.

http://www.plim.org/2idiots.html

So a idiot savant has no algorithm in place, for whatever reason, injury, genetic defect.  His left mind isn’t working.  A sociopath’s right mind isn’t working.  Savant, used by itself describes a person who can use his whole brain, Maslow calls them transcendents,  I call them nexialists, psychologists call them psychotic.  This dual core processor we have between our ears was evolved/a divine gift/created/unfolded in the now whatever to enable us to make sense of what’s outside the skull.  call it god if you want or the universe, cosmic standing wave, great mysterous whatever, doesn’t matter.  That’s entirely dependent on wetware (worldview)

Or I could be full of shit, I am crazy, don’t you know?

league


I have found the most extraordinary thing. This is mind-boggling so it is going to require some setup. Keep your britches on lady, I’m getting there. I have found someone as smart as I am, perhaps even smarter. But how can this be, you may ask? How can someone like el Loco Gringo even consider the possibility? Someone so worldly yet urbane, masculine yet sensitive, intelligent yet smart and assertive yet humble, so very humble. This person is Ted Lumly, hereinafter referred to as Mr. Ted. (I use the honorific Mr. only with non-idiots (or non-stupido’s as Mr Ted would say)

There is indeed “a slavering beast devouring the minds of man” – Ayn Rand

https://ellocogringo.wordpress.com/the-x-files/the-beast/

SlaveringBeast

I propose the formation of a group, A league of extra-temporal gentlemen to slay this beast. This is a multi-generational project. I hereby wish to nominate the following for this group. Mr. Walt (nexialist), Mr. Eva (temporalist), Mr. Ted (physicist), Mr. Geoff (macro-communications), Mr Teresa (micro-communications), Mr Jill (neurologist), Mr. Sir Ken (education), Mr. Kirby (mathematician)

The following is from Mr. Kirby>Although the concept of vector connotes something “advanced” to many ears, we should realize that even the lowly number line, first introduced in the elementary grades, is an application of Grassmann algebra — at least according to some formalist conceptions.
This is because the real numbers, by themselves, have no spatial component. As soon as you allow yourself the freedoms of space, you must piggy-back your reals atop some system of directed elements — the so-called “vectors”.

Centering 4


Bipolar Mood Swings

Putting the fun back in disfunctional

Return to healing

Centering is the ability to maintain balance between logos and mythos in a turbulent ether.

Plug in whichever bipolar model you prefer.

I chose Plato’s model because it is the earliest accurate description of the mind.

Kind of like a pop-off valve on a pressure cooker. An inability to remain centered because of the disjunct between the left and right minds. If centering = the ability to maintain balance between logos and mythos in a turbulent ether. (Plato’s model) or top down/bottom up/environment. I don’t see that psychology has made any advances since Plato. If fact they have regressed. In the same class as voodoo with the caveat that voodoo works better. when a naked priestess dances around you shaking her beads and rattles, it is definitely a mind altering experience. It is psychology/society which is psychotic, not the bipolar. We live in a pressure cooker, a slave society, and the bipolar just “popped” sooner than others. He has “gone off the reservation”, “caught the underground railroad”, “slipped the chains of slavery” His minds rebel against insanity. It’s a balancing act and society has it’s thumb on the scale. (The Aristotelean brain fart) Plato was centered, Aristotle was an idiot.

The right mind says “what about me?”

The left mind says “shut up”

Or…………. Maybe not, I am crazy, don’t you know? But it has kept me from going insane.

Stupid is forever


You can’t fix stupid

“Stupid is as stupid does” – Forrest Gump

Oops! My Fraudian slip is showing. The critical point in determining whether a person is an idiot. (I mean that in the clinical sense) is whether a concept, which challenges the framework, can be transferred from one mind to another. My first comments which lead to this line bumped up against your framework, and you responded with top down thinking. (programmed responses) ie something you had previously considered and formulated an answer for. In your next response you flipped into bottom up thinking focusing in on the “what if”. You disagreed but the concept was transferred. THIS CANNOT HAPPEN WITH AN IDIOT. If you were an idiot your first comment would have been your best and only shot. That’s all there would have been to Ted. One dimensional. That’s why I don’t like talking to an idiot, it’s like talking to a coffee table. An easy way to flush out the idiots is to wrap an unorthodox, but valid, concept in crazy. An idiot can’t get past the crazy and goes away. My, that works out nicely. A centered will brush the crazy off like the fluff it is and consider the concept. That works out nicely too. He may disagree, but he’s not an idiot.

As to the permanent nature of stupid. I pulled the following off the web. Most of the cases are anecdotal but 5 are well documented and investigated. It would appear that after a critical age, the average is 7, the thought patterns become set. For instance, a child might learn a few words but have no conceptual understanding of language. No amount of training, therapy or instruction can overcome this. In my case I was paralyzed from the chest down with statin poisoning. After I quit taking the poison, the effects were flushed out of my system and it returned to normal. BUT, I have lost the ability to walk without thinking about it. I have to concentrate on moving the muscles. My critical period for learning to walk has passed. This condition is forever. (but a lot better than being paralyzed)

Feral Children and the Critical Period

Although the critical period hypothesis was hotly debated for some years, there is now compelling evidence — including the evidence from feral, confined and isolated children — that, unless they are exposed to language in the early years of life, humans lose much of their innate ability to learn a language, and especially its grammatical system.”

CriticalPeriod

So, Yup, stupid is forever. I see overwhelming evidence that it is, and no evidence that it isn’t.  Fixing stupid is an inter-generational problem.

Ayn Rand speaks to the “slavering beast that is devouring the minds of man” as do I

The Beast

10% to 20% of the population are non-idiots (centered), but are pretending to be idiots in the same sense that I pretend to be crazy. I don’t like talking to idiots. I find that if i wrap a concept in “crazy” the idiots can’t get past the wrapping, while a centered can’t wait to discard the wrapping to see what treasure lies inside. I like it that way. This is the target. The rest are idiots. The ones that can understand you will, those that can’t won’t. Stupid is forever. Consider; I showed DrB RatBrain2 in which an amorphous mass of neurons began “connecting and communicating” I asked why “cause that’s what neurons do”. What is the robot doing? “Looking for more neurons”. She instantly saw the relevance. This simple one minute video blows the doors off psychology in the same sense that the cosmic standing wave blows the doors off physics. But as she said “what do we do with it?” Even the guy that made it can’t see the relevance, he immediately talks about plans to make it stupid.

UberMind


What is emerging is a picture of society as a system.  Wheels within wheels

Whereas the mind is an amorphous mass of self-programming neurons, society is an amorphous mass of self-replicating morons and the internet is an amorphous mass of self organizing electrons. The implications of this are sobering. What it means is that if one could push an easy button and get rid of all the assholes, it would only create a vacuum which would immediately be filled with more assholes. As the dendrite system of the mind modulates the activity of the neuron, the institutions of society modulates the activity of the moron. This is the “double think” of George Orwell’s “New Speak”, in which the power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one’s mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them is promoted as a virtue. Dogma is touted as “faith” to keep society dumb. IE The FDA supposedly is an organization devoted to the wellness of the public. Actually it is an organization devoted to the wellness of the drug companies. The goal is an extension of the sickness of patients so as to maximize profits. The same is true of all institutionalized nodes; FTC, AMA, FED etc. What to do? As any sane understanding of the mind must start with the neuron, any sane understanding of society must start with the individual. Destroying the nodes of power represented by institutionalization can only be regarded as a holding action. Politicians are only a symbol of power, they are in fact only stooges, but they’re not our stooges. Here be dragons.

This is as good a place as any to mention a cosmic consciousness.  I can’t add anything to this so Heeeere’s Mr Sid  Synchronicity The Lost Generation

Death by anomie


Old timers disease

Or Pre-senile dementia

Alzheimer’s AKA Old Timers disease starts much earlier than psychology posits.

Durkheim also formally posited anomie as a mismatch, not simply as the absence of norms. Thus, a society with too much rigidity and little individual discretion could also produce a kind of anomie, a mismatch between individual circumstances and larger social mores. Thus, fatalistic suicide arises when a person is too rule-governed, when there is no free horizon of expectation, an absence of legitimate aspirations.

I remember a movie I saw in the mid ’50’s. I forget the name but it starred James Stewart.  I vividly recall one particular scene. It struck me as profound and very descriptive of society. The story involves a newspaper owner who brought his newly college graduated son into the business. After a series of catastrophes which the old man straightened out there was a heated confrontation between father and son.

Father> “well, you always have these conflicts any time a person with fresh, innovative ideas comes into contact with an old fart who is set in his ways with no imagination and adhering to rigid rules.

Son> “Ah, dad, I never thought of you as an old fart”

Father> “No, actually, I think of you as an old fart”

Yup, he’s got it.

Unused neurons die off. We start with about 300 billion and end up with about 100 billion. We must have aspirations, but they must be legitimate aspirations. In this materialistic society our educational system is geared towards outputting superficial robots to feed industrial demand. This imprinting blocks access to the right mind cutting off our connectedness with the world. Industry uses these people up and crushes them like a Styrofoam cup to be tossed in the trash.  Applying the “use ’em or ‘lose ’em rule, the unused neurons in the right mind die off.  Goodbye insight, intuition, creativity, connectedness, centering, harmony etc.  Hello robots, idiots, zombies, parrots, stupidos, hollow or superficial.  Oddly, although psychology defines superficiality, it does not define non superficiality.  IE what is normal?  There is no room for the self .

Psychology posits that there is something wrong with the person. I posit that it is society which is psychotic, not the patient. He/she just cracked earlier than the “norm”.  It is pathological to be well adjusted in this society.

Leave room for the self. The understanding of the glory of the world and the knowledge that we are integral with it.

Never surrender your mind.

Never

Pink Floyd – The Wall, download this, it’s excellent  The Wall

When we grew up and went to school
There were certain teachers who would
Hurt the children in any way they could
By pouring their derision
Upon anything we did
And exposing every weakness
However carefully hidden by the kids

But in the town, it was well known
When they got home at night, their fat and
Psychopathic wives would thrash them
Within inches of their lives.

We don’t need no education
We dont need no thought control
No dark sarcasm in the classroom
Teachers leave them kids alone
Hey! Teachers! Leave them kids alone!
All in all it’s just another brick in the wall.
All in all you’re just another brick in the wall.

SNAP


Synchronous Neuron Access Potential

“Stupid is as stupid does” – Forrest Gump

What is insight? Intuition? Ok I’ll give you that, now the next question, What is intuition? You may be forced to go to your thesaurus to find a synonym for these words. Don’t bother. I’ll tell you what it is. It becomes obivious that the words insight and intuition are only pixie dust sprinkled on a counterfeit concept to give the illusion of understanding something one is totally clueless about. The right mind is primarily a collating device with limited intelligence. It is looking for non-inconsistencies. It is constantly corellating in the background. The correlations that are made are stored in the bottom up algorithm but remain opaque to the top down algorithm. When there is a top down logic fail (input inconsistency), the left algorithm accesses the right algorithm for the “best answer to date” and a new shortcut is set on the left algorithm. The answer has snapped into place. From many seemingly unrelated datum, a pattern emerged in the right mind that the left mind was able to analyze.

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

Nothing illustrates the dichotomy between SNAP and intelligence as comparing “Forrest Gump” with “Concept Calculus”. Forest Gump being a story about a guy with limited intelligence and a lot of SNAP, while, on the other hand in Concept Calculus you have a guy with limited SNAP and a lot of intelligence. Top down and bottom up thinking are two sides of the same coin, each is meaningless on it’s own. The concept is transportable between domains. IE it is cross platform. One domain is the calculus with integral and differential equations. Perfectly valid perspective but Consider; (integral calculus IS bottom up thinking, differential calculus IS top down thinking as applied to math)

Concept Calculus is a new mathematical/philosophical program of wide scope. The development of Concept Calculus began in Summer, 2006. Concept Calculus promises to connect mathematics, philosophy, and commonsense thinking in a radically new way.
Advances in Concept Calculus are made through rigorous mathematical findings, and promise to be of immediate and growing interest to philosophers.
Developments in Concept Calculus generally consist of the following.
a. An identification of a few related concepts from commonsense thinking. In the various developments, the choice of these concepts will vary greatly. In fact, all concepts from ordinary language are prime targets.

And this isn’t a goober, this is Harvey M. Friedman of Ohio State U. THIS GUY IS TRYING TO QUANTIZE BOTTOM UP THINKING. It’s already been done, it’s called top down thinking. Googling “Concept Calculus” yields 14,000 hits. Scary.

I have seriously underestimated the majestic heights to which stupidity can rise, or the aggressive nature of it. Ayn Rand is right, “it is a slavering beast eating the minds of mankind.”

I had mentioned that perhaps intelligence will prove to be a dead end. Well, intelligence has proven to be a dead end. I am an atavar, a throwback to a time when mankind was more intelligent. All of the “people like me” in the US could fit into the waiting area of the VA. (if they were friendly) Half of them are probably institutionalized, shot up with smarticide. (kills off your smarts’) Half of the remainder are in hiding, the rest unknown. If all of them had a unity of purpose they would not have the momentum to alter the slide into dumb. There will be no enlightenment, there will be no “hundredth monkey”. The die has been cast, and it’s loaded.

Please tell me I lack the humor to detect the subtlety in the tongue in cheek positing of “concept calculus”. Please. PLEASE

“Stupidity has a definite evolutionary function. I’m all for abolishing stupidity, but before it goes, while there’s still a lot of it around, we should pay tribute to it. …The stronest conspiracy is the conspiracy of the stupid, To prevent schools from educating their children, because they want their children to be as dumb as they are. To prevent television from putting anything intelligent on.” – Robert Anton

“The time has come, dreamweaver says, to speak of many things, Of whereness and whenness, and gravity wells, of white holes, lifts and strings” – el Loco Gringo.

As to the percentages, I feel I’m closer to right. Heyleighen has done a paper on what he calls the “extremely gifted” He puts the figure at .07% Uh oh, I feel another page coming on. Let’s talk, instead of intelligence, about cognitive ability. Humans are unique in that we have two cognitive minds. One Boolean, one binary. The Boolean mind perceives the world in the frequency domain, this is the way an animal sees. The binary mind interprets the frequency domain as the time domain and throws away the extra dimension. Then a physicist comes along who hasn’t had his right mind crippled, (that’s you) looks at this interpretation and epiphanies. “Hey, the universe is actually composed of waves, adds the discarded dimension back in and finds that it has a beat of 8 and other good stuff” Not only is the math not the physics, but the math hinders the understanding of the physics. The mind does a much better job of interpreting the frequency domain than math. Look out the window, that’s it. All the computing power in the world can’t do what the mind is doing, real time. Now to the crux of it. When you use math on the time domain you are using a rubber ruler to measure shadows. Consider Ptolemy’s theory. It was beautiful, it was concise, it was comprehensive, it was elegant, it was conclusive, it was wrong. He was using a rubber ruler to measure shadows. Same thing happened to Einstein.

Back to cognizance. There are actually two aspects one is intelligence, this measures only the left mind, the other is what I call SNAP, it measures the right (simply, SNAP is a bullshit detector. In 80-90% of the population the SNAP has been hijacked by ideology, religion etc. These are idiots. They have had a social lobotomy. 10-20% of the population are what I called centered.

“The centered, being pragmatic, understand and accept the ambiguity of the situation, doing whatever it takes to survive, pretending to be idiots, but maintaining their individuation, however surreptitiously.” – el Loco Gringo This is your audience, my dear Mr Geoff. The rest don’t count. Stupid is forever.

Consider Ptolemy again, had he said that the earth circled the sun, he would have been burned at the stake. He may have been centered pretending to be an idiot. Rather than pretending to be an idiot, I pretend to be crazy, it’s a lot simpler, and more fun. An IQ test measures only the intelligence, I propose the SQ (SNAP quotient) which measures the Intelligence and the SNAP. Take me for instance, my IQ was measured at 161. My SQ would probably be twice that or 300, discounting synergistic effects. I suspect you’re the same (or more, how would I know?).

Using Heyleighen’s figures, that would mean that in the US there are 280,000.000 idiots, 21,000,000 centered, 2100 Nexialists and 21 transcendents. Sounds about right. Consider TED, there’s 1000 right there. What I am saying, my dear Mr Geoff, is that if you were to give a 20 minute talk at TED and left the math out of it, EVERYONE in the audience would understand. Wouldn’t that be delightful?

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.

TRUTH


p-Truth, n-Truth, m-Truth

In my quest to explain bottom up thinking, I had thought to coin the term p-Truth (pseudo). Alas I find it is a well developed concept. Simply put, it is a truth that could be possible, but is not proven. I had always known that my mind discards erroneous and irrelevant data. A bullshit detector, if you will. This is the n-Truth (non), a truth that is not possible. IE you know something that “ain’t so”. There is also the m-Truth (mini), a truth which fits in with and validates the p-truth.

“truth = appropriate logic + relevant data” – el Loco Gringo

(I can’t believe that people write whole books on the topic, it’s so simple)

“truth is simple and beautiful, deceit is devious and ugly” – el Loco Gringo

Without reading any of these books, (a concept that requires a book is, by definition, devious and ugly) I’ll include links if you’re so inclined.

Starting from the bottom, there is no “truth” (unless you’re God, itself a p-truth).

Consider the field of genetics, DNA control was a p-truth, epigenitics is the new p-truth. And as we learn, we will discover new p-truths. (Either by serendipity or applying bottom up logic).

Following this from my perspective, my ANN is a truth, your ANN is a p-Truth, psychology is an n-Truth. IE to me; the ANN is the way my mind works (I’ve been there), it is probably the way everyone’s mind works, psychology isn’t possible.

Also to me; the concept that the fabric of the universe is governed by vectors in the 4th dimension is a p-truth. Einsteins concept of the space-time continuum is an n-truth. (I could be right, he’s wrong)

Also, to me, yoga is a truth (works for me). Yoga, TA, whole brain, Zen, TM etc are p-truths for others (could be). This then is what I mean by “seek your own truth”, seek that which works for you. Heed that little voice peeping in the corner of the echo box that says “they’re all full of shit” (the Scientific Method is an n-truth)

Thus there is no TRUTH, there is only truth, a p-truth as determined by the right algorithm setting the point on the left algorithm. It may be “the best answer to date”, “this idea seems to work for the moment” or even the less definitive “could be”.

Daimon


Daimon

“The problem is not that an individual has more than one personality, the problem is that he has any number but two.” – el Loco Gringo

Socrates often said that this inner voice, which many times deterred him from doing one thing, never incited him to do something else. That’s your right mind, your bullshit detector kicking in – el loco gringo.

Consider this idiot;

In 1993 David Spiegel, chair of the dissociative disorders committee for the 1994 DSM-IV, wrote that “there is a widespread misunderstanding of the essential psychopathology of this dissociative disorder, which is failure of integration of various aspects of identity, memory, and consciousness. The problem is not having more than one personality; it is having less than one personality.”

The asylum is being run by the inmates.

Everyone has two personalities, which when combined make a total of three methods of dealing with the world. Less that three is abnormal. More than three is pathological. Why is this not patently obvious to the meanest of intelligences?

These three methods being;

left hemisphere – skeptical

right hemisphere – receptive

combined – “we’ll see”

Why is this so difficult to understand?

Consider the case of “the 3 faces of Eve

She presents as a case of MPD. (the term dissociative disorder having not been an available condition at the time)

3 personalities, Eve white, Eve Black, and Jane. Eve Black was right hemisphere. Jane was left hemisphere. Eve White was synthesized. Her problem was that she could not operate in the combined mode so had to synthesize one. Why could no one pick this up after talking to her for 15 minutes? Why are people dumb?

This is no more complicated than you putting on your DrB hat when you come to work, your Teresa hat among friends and your combined hat among strangers. Where is the logic fail? Why all the words to describe a simple concept. Words strip the meaning out of understanding. Even my “bottom up thinking” is but an synonym in a futile attempt (among many) to describe a very simple concept. (nirvana, constructionist, connectness, insight, understanding, spirituality, soul, centering etc) It is not TRUTH, it is only sneaking up on the truth. Even in the skeptic mode it should be obvious that TRUTH is not possible, all we CAN have is the “best answer to date” or “this concept seems to work for the moment” or even the less definitive “could be”. That’s not even thinking, that’s adherence to dogma. Pre-Programming by someone else’s concepts. An entire civilization built up on the premise of not thinking, peopled by automatons pretending they’re smart. They have literally “sold their soul to the devil of dumb”. Why have they thrown away the marvelous gift of communication? Why do they not explore the “path less traveled”. Why do they eschew the wonders of themselves to live out their meaningless lives in this ant warren of society? Why are people dumb? Why have they cut the wires to their bullshit detector? Why is understanding considered un-nuanced? Why do they surrender their self worth. There is no TRUTH, there are only truths. Well enough of the frivolity, these are a couple of quotes from the attached article. walt

The daemonic is [that] unique pattern of sensibilities and powers which constitutes the individual as a self in relation to the world – Rollo May

“…archetypal patterns that constellate in an individual, resulting in a personality which, given the presence of a healthy ego, operates like a committee with ego as chair.4 In her model, the story and character of a particular archetype may be recognized by the ego as self-descriptive. That archetype may evince the quality of the daimon or genius”. – -Jean Shinoda Bolen (kinda wordy, but she’s right)

Miracle of music


Basic Miracle of Music

“The octave relationship is a natural phenomenon which has been referred to as the “basic miracle of music,…” …After the unison, the octave is the simplest interval in music. The human ear tends to hear both notes as being essentially “the same”, due to closely related harmonics. For this reason, notes an octave apart are given the same note name in the Western system of music notation—the name of a note an octave above A is also A Monkeys experience octave equivalency, and its biological basis apparently is an octave mapping of neurons in the auditory thalamus of the mammalian brain[6] and the perception of octave equivalency in self-organizing neural networks can form through exposure to pitched notes, ” – Wikepedia Logic Fail http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Octave#Theory


“Philosophers have long commented on the ‘power’ of music in forging our character and connecting our souls to our inner nature, our society, and the world around us. Plato and Aristotle each invested considerable attention in describing the risks and rewards of exposing the young to varying modes (that is, styles) of music.” – Nolan Gasser
No, No, No!!! TOTAL BULLSHIT. As has been my experience when addressing any topic in which I become curious, I find that people think backwards. They are confusing cause and effect. The note is an interpretation of a perception (vector), itself heavily filtered, of reality. This is because they are working under the assumption that the time domain is reality, and have no concept of the frequency domain.

Hazy


Something hazy this way comes

Bottom up mind games. There are two ways of viewing everything. For instance, in any contest you can position yourself to win. Often unconsidered is the other option, position yourself so that the other person loses. Consider this mind game. There is a box into which we put an animal (that’s me) The mad scientist (bipolar manic/depressive) of this experiment is on the outside conducting experiments. (That’s me too) I can do that, this is MY game. Look at it as MPD if that helps. So the mad scientist picks me up turns me into a lizard and sticks me in the box. Jeez this is dull, all I can do is eat, attack, run, mate. There are four holes in the box permitting sensory input to the outside. They say feel, hear, see, smell. This is what I will later term bullshit as it has nothing to do with the problem at hand, which is “what is out there that I can eat, mate with, run from or attack?” (besides, I can’t read, nor can I count to 4). So I spend my what I will later call time running between the four holes looking for something to perform my limited repertoire of responses on. Or I can do what all lizards do most of the time, which is nothing. (told you it was boring) But the mad scientist has turned on a vibrator in sight of all four windows. Not a female sexual toy but something that causes broad spectrum vibrations. This kind has knobs and switches which would probably detract from the pleasure. But back to the lizard. Now I can see something out of the feel hole. There is nothing visible in the smell hole so I’ll reserve judgment. Please remember that all god’s critters got one talent they excel at, in the case of the lizard it is reserving judgment. Not as good at it as a cucumber, mind you, but they still give a respectable performance. Now the mad scientist turns the frequency knob. IT MOVED. It becomes visible through the hear hole, then disappears, then becomes visible through the see hole. Now the mad scientist turns on the smell. Clockwise turns on the mate me, counter-clockwise the eat me. Or since the lizard thinks primarily in the bottom up mode, and not bounded by the scientific method, a third choice is possible, it can go sideways, IE mate with and eat the object. The fourth choice eat and mate with is a non-starter. At least from a practical point of view, if not conceptually. Turning the phase control causes the perceived image to get larger and smaller so that the lizard can run or attack as appropriate. What is going on? Whatever the mad scientist is doing is causing vibrations to fluctuate causing various responses in the lizard. The input signals are viewed through different senses depending upon frequency. Sound is spread out in waves as is light but it’s still the same object transmitted by the same means. As this is psychology and not physics we can now stay inside the skull and contemplate how these signals are perceived and interpreted. The signals are received in the frequency domain and interpreted in the time domain. Now I can continue evolving to chimp. We are left with the same interpretation of the external world but have added mental capacity so we can visualize the interpretations of the perceptions of the vibrations and even begin to conceptualize. Watching the dusty land rover approach across the savanna I become fixated on the wheel. It’s a goodyear 225/16 steel belted radial. No whitewall. All that’s bullshit because I still can’t read but I can count to 4. It’s bigger than I am and previous experience has shown me that it’s usually imprudent to touch something that is bigger than I am and moving. I notice the valve stem is going up and down and round and round. It’s rotating. It’s impossible to make sense of it past that. And this thing’s got 4 of them. That’s about it. Now I’m human and I realize that this stem is describing a regular up and down motion which I can call a sign wave. If I stop the wheel I can read the Goodyear 225/16. It’s still bullshit but I can include it in the paper I’m doing on the yet to be invented trigonometry. But I forget that the wheel is in my head only. And in the end all that I have is a quantification of a interpretation of a perception of a filtered sense, of vibrations. It’s only a model of the wheel. For in the end, there is only the vibrator.

Bottom up


Tales from the inside


How do bottom up thinking work? The left hemisphere is a serial processor operating on p-truths. (Thinking) The right hemisphere is a parallel processor operating on n-truths. (musing) Each has an algorithm devoted to it’s own mode of operation. All things being equal, these algorithms are combined into what a psychologist would call a personality, in a protected part of the mind I call the ANN. In my case the left algorithm I call Walter, the right el Loco Gringo. Normally I am in the combined mode, (as are most people) Input data arrives in both hemispheres simultaneously, and each sets it’s own algorithm with the results. If the algorithms do not compare (does not compute) my bullshit detector goes off and I flip over to the el Loco Gringo mode. If they consistently compare I flip over to the Walter mode. This “flip” does not happen with most people. (I call them idiots) In the Walter mode I am receptive to the input. In the el Loco Gringo mode I am skeptical. The mode is merely which algorithm is dominant and which is sub-dominant. Most people will not switch. A MPD can’t switch. (non-integrated) The switch is seamless. (½ second) It’s really nothing more than you putting on your DrB hat when you come to work, your Teresa hat at home and you combined hat in other situations. (both receptive and skeptical)

Real time bottom up thinking is cumbersome. It requires a mirror (non-idiot) to communicate with. As it is necessary to the process for these concepts (patterns) to be communicated to become relevant to survival so the algorithms can be set. To an idiot this comes across as a rambling, incoherent dissertation. Communication is futile. The algorithms do not get set.

Background bottom up thinking is the normal mode. The right hemisphere is always correlating data while awake. When it gets a hit it communicates it to the left hemisphere so both algorithms can be set. P-truth equates to n-truth. This is called insight, or epiphany. Curiosity triggers this mode, prioritizing the data that meet the criteria. Most of the letters I send to you come from this mode. Just kind of “time to write that letter” on “tales from the inside”. I don’t spend any time contemplating these letters. I just sit down at the keyboard and bang away. Another instance, I got curious about what el Loco Gringo was protecting and came up with this;

This is the Right hemisphere version; “The Essence of Me”

“What is this thing that el Loco Gringo so fiercely defends? It is a tiny vortex that has formed in the temporal river. It exists for the briefest of moments, then is reabsorbed. It strives to balance the forces of the ripples within and the ripples without, maintaining an ethereal form that allows connectedness with the universe and the individual me. It defends me from those who seek to remove this individuation and connectedness. Sometimes doldrums, sometimes rapids. Under the tree limbs and around the rocks. The river has no purpose. It just flows from high ground to low, with no whence or whither, only anon. it obeys the law of the universe, negentropy, time’s arrow. And in the end, this vortex loses form. “The moving finger writes, and having writ, moves on” – Omar Khayyam. Throughout it all, el Loco Gringo never lost the wonder. It is the essence of me. In the end, there is only the river. All is as it should be.”

This is the left;

This is my mind, and mine alone. I like it just as it is. It has guided and protected me through a turbulent life. It has shown me the beauty and the ugliness of the world in all it’s glory and depravity. I have marveled at the richness of the world and the people in it. It has given me a most rewarding journey. It is a fine mind indeed. And I am proud of it, so very proud. It has served me well.”

The algorithms compare, the algorithms have been set. This is the “best answer to date”. The right’s answer is almost poetic. (interestingly, I had to look up the anagram for entropy, also interesting is use of the word law, singular) The left’s is bottom line. This is the two perspectives on the question. Both are right. When Walter’s life becomes too turbulent the ANN slams el Loco Gringo into the breech.

Or as Jill Bolte Taylor put it’, “The we inside of me”

In the dreaming mode bottom up thinking replays previous experiences in holodeck fashion to see if better solutions can be found. If a hit is registered, it resets the algorithms. The snippets one recalls upon awakening is only the buffer being cleared so dreams don’t get confused with reality.

Humor is the realization that you should have been operating in the other mode. IE you were using inappropriate logic to address the concept proposed.  Simply, your mind has been tricked.  Like tickling the mind. (That last was an insight)

Aggregation


Bottom up thinking – a process of aggregation of ALL+Perceived data which does not fail top down thinking and having found a “best answer to date”, the algorithms can be set, become in agreement and an hypothesis (guess) can be formed which remains a p-truth until more data becomes available. (Long sentence, I’m sorry, but it’s all one concept) This p-truth is that time is an artifact. (which raises the question “of what?” which, in and of itself, raises the philosophical question “who gives a shit?”

It is not TRUTH, but only a p-truth on the path to TRUTH which will can never be achieved, we can only sneak up on it, in the sense of Newton’s concept of approaching infinity. The “of what” question alluded to earlier would suggest a negentropic universe, at which time this p-truth becomes a m-truth. Addressing this must wait until the “time as an artifact” passes the scientific method. (Although it wouldn’t hurt to mention it so as to get credit) As to “who gives a shit?” probably nobody. Why does the mind do this? Consider the following from a few good men.

You want answers? Lt. Daniel Kaffee:
I think I’m entitled. Col. Nathan R. Jessep:
You want answers?! Lt. Daniel Kaffee:
I want the truth! Col. Nathan R. Jessep:
You can’t handle the truth!

Our minds cannot handle the truth. Reality is chaotic, in both senses of the word, and is imperfectly sensed, heavily filtered, collated in the right hemisphere, and quantized in the left hemisphere so as to be presented in a usable fashion. An m-truth which supports this theory is the “magic of music”, worthy of a paper in itself. I’ll have to show you this, this will blow your mind. Think of the spinning cylinder I mentioned earlier. Entire disciplines have been built up, trigonometry, Fourier transforms, mathematics, musical notation etc. to describe this phenomenon, but it’s still only ways to quantify what is, after all, only a spinning cylinder, even this concept flawed by the inadequacy of of our sensory input. This goes past the shadows of Plato’s cave, this is shadows of shadows of shadows. A quantification of a perception of what is seen through a filter. But, in the end, it’s still only a limited perception of a spinning cylinder.

Why can no one see these big gaping holes in the logic of the scientific method? It’s like mental masturbation. It’s insanity. The scientific method cannot prove or discover anything, it can only disprove. It is negative by nature, as it should be, a check on bottom up thinking. A process of elimination to counter and augment the process of accumulation. It should be an adjunct to bottom up thinking but it’s use has been to reinforce dogma. It does not seek truth, it attacks new concepts, as it should. We must have good reason to abandon a concept which has survival value. Why does no one realize that knowledge is only guesses, IE best answers to date? One possibility is that the ability to do bottom up thinking has been bred out of the population, like left-handedness, and for the same reason. Indoctrination techniques do not work on left handed people and bottom up thinkers. This would mean that SNAP has been bred out of the population. People with SNAP are .07% of the population. 200 in US

Which brings me full circle. Why are people dumb? Why can nobody balance their algorithms? My bullshit detector is almost continuously triggered. Bottom up thinking is tedious and tiresome and does not seem to effect my dealings with society. I choose not to, I choose reclusion.

The exclamation of discovery is not “eureka” but “that’s odd”. And nobody can see the “odd”.  Your observation that I am on a mountaintop is astute, but the view IS marvelous, don’t you know?.

Mind Time


The unconsidered factor


Are you thinking? <stop the clock: time is 00:000> NO!! You are reading. The mind is not multi-tasking. You can read or think but not read and think. Your mind is skipping down an algorithm to see if there is a match (preprogrammed response) for someone asking if you are thinking. <advance clock to 00:005 (½ second)> You have reached a decision point on the algorithm. The mind slides the time forward ½ second so that you have the ILLUSION of continuity. Lets say you decide I’m strato-cumulus and decide to read another article. You toss this in the trash and pick up another article. The point is that during this ½ second you are without volition. Do not confuse this with a reflex which is measured in fractions of a second. Or with a reaction which is <1/2 second. This is a reaction which takes 1/2 seconds. So lets say you decide to keep reading <start the clock: time is 00.005> data continues to be read into a FIFO buffer to be processed as reactions points are triggered. After, say 5 minutes you lay the article down and reach a decision point to ponder what you have read. The FIFO buffer empties and is processed. <start the clock time is 05:005> access left hemisphere 3 sec <05:035> access right hemisphere 3 sec <05:065> return to algorithm ½ sec <05:070> <stop the clock> Up till now we still have not done any thinking, we have only searched our mind for possible matches. Bear in mind that during this 7 seconds we are without volition. WE DO NOT NORMALLY THINK REAL TIME. This has extreme negative survival value in an environment where there are nasty critters that want to eat us. If we decide to actually think the time would be indeterminate. (head in the clouds, penny for you thoughts, daydreaming is thinking real time)

Lion LunchIt is impossible for a creature that thinks real time to have survived to evolve into humans.   Charlie Chimp would be Lion Lunch if he stood around with his head up his ass for 7 seconds.  He wouldn’t have any offspring.  There would be no Stanford psychologists for el Loco Gringo to make fun of, and that would make el Loco Gringo very sad.

But, you may protest, we don’t go through all these steps. No, but the mind does. So when do we think? Well, if you’re sitting at you desk in an air conditioned office and there isn’t a lion prowling the halls looking for lunch, you’re probably safe. Most thinking, however, is done in dreaming, where various scenarios are played out so the optimal solution can be used to modify the appropriate decision point on the algorithm, so that when you are operating in your normal environment you don’t have to have a 7 second pause between question and answer. These dreams are in full color and indistinguishable from reality. That’s why they have to be flushed upon awakening.

Time is, after all only in our head.  It is our mind’s way of interpreting motion.

“If a picture is worth a thousand words, a video is worth a thousand pictures” – el Loco Gringo

If you will begin with certainties, you shall end in doubts, but if you will content to begin with doubts, you shall end in almost certainties.” -Francis Bacon

Like seeing that the sky is blue. I go outside and look up “Yup, it’s blue” Yet how can I explain this to a blind person? Lets start with “what is blue?” Oops!, but blue is an artifact, blue ain’t real, it is just an interpretation of real.  Then it explodes into physics, optics, astronomy, math, etc. And, to the person I am trying to explain it to, he is left with “incomplete logic trees” incomprehensible and obscure. He cannot see the “blue sky”. The mind is simple once you accept that it is indeterminate.

RatBrain2 explains in one minute the basics of everything I am trying to say. The mind is a self programing amorphous mass of neurons. That’s a fact, it’s not a theory. Try to see the “Blue Sky”. It is a tiny step from seeing the Blue Sky to tripling mankind’s cognitive ability. To be “more than we can be”. If you can see the Blue Sky, you can understand the mind. Those of you who are into whole brain, non-dualism, meditation, TM, yoga etc. should be able to see the blue sky sooner.  These mind expanding methods are not THE answers but each is AN answer.

We’re going to start with a self programming amorphous mass of neurons. Instead of 300,000 (rat brained robot) it will have 10 billion. We will slowly build it up to explain how it functions, how it can be crippled, and how to unlock it. This paper will not cover chemical effects, hormones, specialized brain structures, brain injuries or any such. I will leave that to those who are interested in such irrelevancies. I do not need to know how to build a car to be able to drive it. And that’s all I am attempting. No more. No less.

If you get disorientated at any point in this paper, watch the video again and get your feet back on the ground. Do not be embarrassed, social conditioning is strong and difficult to overcome. I will try to go slow as I am trying to explain constructivist concepts in reductionist lingo. el Loco Gringo will hold your hand and guide you through the morass. It is not your intellect that prevents you from seeing the blue sky, it is the social conditioning which has crushed creativity. Even Kevin Warwick, who built the rat brain robot, cannot see the blue sky. Once you can see the blue sky, the rest is easy, even obvious. copy and paste the below link into your browser

Rat Brain Robot

We will start by examining how the mind really works and build up to emotional aspects such as centering, educational blocks and spiritual inhibitions.

There are none so blind as those who will not see.” -Thomas Chalkley

FrustrationFrustration

Why can no one see this?

Is everyone really insane?

Why can no one see the blue sky?  Why can no one make this intuitive leap.  That the brain basically is a

self programing amorphous mass of neurons

IE the mind is a programmed brain.

Why is the significance of this overlooked?  This is the greatest discovery in the history of man, and it is being dismissed as a method to maybe gain some understanding of old timers disease.  This is the E=MC^2 of the mind.  and nobody cares.  even Kevin Warick can’t see what he’s done.  As Einstein asked “is everyone else crazy, or am I?”

Start with the neuron. This is where everything must start. It is the beginning. It is the alpha. It is the doorway. It is the key to understanding the mind. ANY thought pattern concerning the mind that doesn’t start here is insane.

Applying reductionist (top down) thinking to the neuron yields the neurologist. Perfectly OK. The neuron is determinate. Results are accurate and predictable. The scientific method at it’s best.

Applying constructionist (bottom up) thinking to the neuron yields the ANN. Again perfectly OK. The mind is indeterminate. The results are accurate and predictable. The lateral method at it’s best.

Applying top down thinking to the mind yields insanity. When building a house you don’t start with the roof and work your way down. You will end up with a trash pile of rubbish (psychology) which collapses under it’s own weight. You must start with the foundation.

Step back and forget everything you know about psychology, in fact just forget everything you think you know. Try to get to the mental state of the infant, un-indoctrinated, centered, no blocks or taboos, no preconceptions, no knowledge. Point your peepers at this problem and you will see that “when you put neurons together they connect and start communicating”. Why? Because that’s what neurons do. That’s how they evolved. If you want to know how, you ask a neurologist and he’ll give you an accurate answer. RatBrain2 demonstrates the first 3 steps in the constructionist thought process that will lead to an accurate understanding of the mind. The ANN is accurate and predictable. It becomes obvious. I’ll give you a hint on step 4. What is the robot doing? IE it is an amorphous mass of neurons which have connected and started communicating and is doing what?

“Appropriate logic applied to relevant data yields truth” – el Loco Gringo

Think like da Vinci.

Yes Al, everybody really is insane. Wish you were here.

Ratbrain

Watch ratbrain-2 and ponder the significance of what is happening. Keep watching it until your left hemisphere gets frustrated trying to make sense out of it and turns it over to the right hemisphere. The left hemisphere will keep saying “So what?”  Watch it again to discover “what”.  You will have an epiphany, a flash of insight that will illuminate reality like a flare going off over the field of battle. Indeterminate problems become simple using constructionist thinking. Look for the blue sky. This is my nirvana.

You will notice an irreverent tone in this paper, very unprofessional. It is intentional. Professionalism crushes creativity.

Intro to CT


Intro to CT

This may come as a shock, but I am beginning to think that I may have been wrong. If true, this will be a first. I had made the comment “I don’t see the survival value in dumb”. But there may have been at one time in our evolution. Think of Ardi (creationists worst nightmare, we didn’t evolve from chimps, chimps evolved from us) in the paleolithic conscious constructionist thinking (CT) would have a definite negative survival value. Ergo selection (or de-selection if you prefer) would have favored restricting constructionist thinking to the un-conscious, ie dreaming. This is no longer the case, however.

Consider;

CT requires the ability to hold several seemingly disparate concepts in the mind simultaneously. Not to be confused with the Orwellian “double think” in which several actually disparate and mutually exclusive concepts can be held in the mind comfortably. For instance, accepting the data presented in ratbrain-2 and and the tenets of psychology simultaneously strikes me as insane. One of them is obviously WRONG, For instance; I worked with a geophysical company that was manned by fundamentalists. They “knew” the earth was created 4,000 years ago. That was a “truth”. At the same time their job consisted of classifying rotifers to properly determine how many millions of years ago a geological structure was formed. That was also a “truth”. When queried they responded “I couldn’t understand secular humanism” (They’re right on that.) Think of CT as parallel processing. Hold that thought.

Reductionist Thinking limits the answer to what is actually “the best answer to date” as determined by CT, it dictates a single answer or conclusion for rapid response. It is not THE truth, but only A truth. One of many. Think of RT as serial processing. Hold that thought.

I am aware of only a handful of people who are capable of “switch hitting” IE volitionally able to go from RT to CT. Hold that thought.

CT is described as an “enhanced state” of consciousness. I don’t see it that way, it’s only different from RT. Hold that thought.

Many meditative techniques claim to enable one to enter this enhanced state, probably true, what they describe is what I experience. A sense of being one with the universe, (as perceived by me) a connectedness with my fellow man, a wholeness. Hold that thought.

One difference between RT and CT is that with RT you may “know” the answer but with CT you “understand” the question. BIG difference. Hold that thought.

As soon as my mind determines that the RT “truth” is bullshit it switches to CT (if I’m interested) else I just change the subject or inform them they are an idiot. Hold that thought.

I am aware of my mind, In the sense I am aware of any part of my body. I understand this is unusual. Hold that thought.

Consider the video on Jill Taylor “A stroke of insight”. She was a neuroscientist who was forcibly dumped into CT (right hemisphere) by a stroke which disabled much of her left hemisphere. (her mind went to “plan B”). She eloquently and effusively describes her experience, one result of which was an “explosion” of creativity. Consider, she was a person who had studied the workings of the mind for 30 years AND WAS NOT EVEN AWARE THAT THAT LEVEL OF CONSCIOUSNESS EXISTED. WOW! She “knew” the answer before, she “understands” the question now. (you’ve got to ask the right question if you expect a reasonable answer). She is now a “switch hitter”, she can step into either mode of thought. She describes the experience as “overpowering”. It’s not, she’s just never been there before. It’s just bottom up thinking, asking the right question.

And where was I wrong? Dumb has an inherited component.

Museing


“Spontaneity is the right mind tossing out a suggestion, it is up to the left mind to determine it’s practicality. “ – el Loco Gringo

Our mind only processes data as it relates to real life experience. In speaking with another person about any topic, it then becomes part of our real life experience and will be processed. Whereas before, my real life experience was trying to understand why people reject logic and facts, now my real life experience is the workings of the mind. It is being processed. My understanding this requires that I acquire a better visualization method. “make it so” . I am starting to see the mind in visual symbols, almost impossible to put into words. See if you can put this into words. Picture the unANN as an amorphous (un-ordered) liquid (sic) the ANN “poofs” it causing ripples (in 4 dimensions)

BTW Are you aware there is a school of philosophy which postulates that a concept for which there is no word is nonsense in and of itself, and defines the person as insane? WOW!!! and they think I’m crazy

Musing

Musing – Contemplation; meditation. – Free Dictionary

Muse – Absorbed in one’s thoughts

Muse – (n) a seer

Muse – Greek Mythology Any of the nine daughters of Mnemosyne and Zeus, each of whom presided over a different art or science.

Muse>Domain>Emblem

Calliope>Epic poetry>Writing tablet

Clio>History>Scrolls

Erato>Lyric poetry> Cithara

Euterpe>Music>Aulos

Melpomene>Tragedy>Tragic mask

Polyhymnia>Choral>poetry Veil

Terpsichore>Dance>Lyre

Thalia>Comedy>Comic mask

Urania>Astrology>Globe and compass

Delphic oracle, the most important oracle in the classical Greek world, The oracle consulted with the muses to answer questions of importance.

I am going to use the word musing for what is happening in the right hemisphere, thinking isn’t really appropriate. Do you notice the close correlation between what the muses did and what we think we know of the right hemisphere? (taking into account the culture differences)

I don’t think the muses were myth in the strictest sense of the word. And there really were oracles. I posit that the muses were a mental framework (similar to the ANN) that the oracles used to do bottom up thinking.

Posit – to lay down or assume as a fact or principle

If true, I am the Maylene Oracle.

When I get curious about something, the answers start coming. I may be full of shit, but it sets the algorithms, (top down thinking) for better or worse, with the best answer to date.

As far as the right hemisphere is concerned, the point of all this is that there is no point. There is no goal, no conclusion, no target, no “scientific method”. When I get curious about something my right hemisphere starts “free associating” with the contents. It doesn’t assume anything. And there’s a lot there. The entire universe (As I have perceived it) Every thing I have seen, experienced, felt, thought, heard is there. All knowledge that I have ever acquired is there. This is what is not working in most peoples minds. This is the insight, the epiphany, the bullshit detector. This is the way the mind is supposed to work. And it has been crippled. The wires have been cut to the light bulb. And the muses are dismissed as myth. This cutting causes the beast, the hollow man, the abyss, the superficial man, the p-zombie or whatever term you wish to use. A cultural lobotomy. What would society be like with a thousand da Vincis, a million, a billion, 6 billion? Maybe there will be a 100th monkey happening.

3 Faces of Eve


Multiple Personality
(Disorder?)

“The problem is not that an individual has more than one personality, the problem is that he has any number but two.” – el Loco Gringo

Well sure, everyone has MPD, but I don’t know if I would call it a disorder. Every one has two algorithms (three if you count the tandem operation) I don’t see how there could be more. Probably psychologist induced. Need to deal with the “here and now”

As I have mentioned, it is not possible for a person to have more than 3 personalities, dominant, sub-dominant and Combined and that any others are manufactured by the psychiatrist/psychologist. A “real” personality will be on the algorithm with a 1/2 second response. (it is in fact the algorithm.) Notice the 3 second pause (when switching to Eve White) on the attached file. This shouldn’t be happening if it were a real personality. (It’s a real interview, you can hear the crinoline rustle when Eve Black walks.) Eve has, in fact, only two personalities instead of the normal three. This is why she is reserved and restrained, she has to synthysize the combined personality. i.e. She can be A or B but not A and B.

I like that picture, that’s how I view everyone, the center one is the combined, the left and the right are the dominant and sub-dominant. (Eve Black and Jane  or walt and el Loco Gringo, Eve white is synthesized) I have run into one other person like this, A or B which were unaware of each other, there was no combined personality. She would tell different things to different people and believe them. Heres another nobel for you.

In BLUEBIRD: Deliberate Creation of Multiple Personality by Psychiatrists, Dr. Ross provides proof, based on 15,000 pages of documents obtained from the CIA under the Freedom of Information Act, that the Manchurian Candidate is fact, not fiction. He describes the experiments conducted by psychiatrists to create amnesia, new identities, hypnotic access codes (hooks), and new memories in the minds of experimental subjects.

Reference the dogtrack video and note the 3 second pause when the ANN accesses the unANN. Also note the hook installed with “forhead, chest, elbow”.

Intuition


a counterfeit concept

Having yet to hear you utter anything stupid, I checked out intuition here> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intuition_(Bergson)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intuition_(Bergson)

First paragraph>”Bergson introduces two ways in which an object can be known: absolutely and relatively. Pertaining to each mode of knowledge is a method through which it can be gained. The latter’s method is what Bergson calls analysis, while the method of intuition belongs to the former.”

He immediately lets the Aristotelian Brain Fart. He’s wrong, as is his main antagonist Kant. In this case the answer is not A or B, or Both but neither. What is a twisted, byzantine labyrinth of illogic becomes quite simple if one can only accept that we have two cognitive minds, each with it’s own logic and process. A very complex problem is no sweat if handled in two methods by two processors and the results correlated. The first process is binary, the second process is Boolean. While the left mind is concerned with (pseudo) TRUTH, the right mind is concerned with truths. (consistencies) Discounting the reticulum weighting to keep it simple. There are four things involved, consistent, inconsistent, not consistent, and not inconsistent. (we’re Boolean, remember?) And the difference is not semantic.

The conscious is me. walt, the subconscious is el Loco Gringo

They both interface through Walter. Since most people already know who their “me” is, I’ll speak only of the subconscious. I picture mine as having the intelligence and temperament of a puppy with enormous storage and collating abilities. When I get curious about something, he starts sniffing around. Conscious-subconscious interface. The relationship between “me” and eLG is not unlike that between you and the computer on your desk. If you get curious about something you turn to your computer and google it. The alternative is to drive down to the library and look it up. Choosing the alternative strikes me as insane. Yet this is what is happening in most peoples mind. They’ve unplugged the computer. Insight, dreams, images etc is nothing more than “you’ve got mail”. An attention getter. A correlation has been made. IE here’s something you need to look at.

Like a puppy, eLG knows I’m looking for something, he doesn’t know why, nor does he care. But he’s found it, and sending a “you’ve got mail” in the best way he can. A puppy can’t speak, and ain’t too bright, but it does know where what you’re looking for is. So I follow the puppy, I don’t try to lead it. If I’m going in the right direction the puppy wags it’s tail, if I.m going in the wrong direction the puppy sits. (metaphorically speaking) This isn’t thinking, or reasoning or logic. It’s just following the path of least resistance. (If you’ve ever had a hungry cat, you know exactly what I’m talking about.)

Consider:The first image is a city reconstructed with juxtaposed photographs taken from every viewpoint and angle. The reconstruction can never give us the dimensional value of walking through the actual city.

But it is not necessary to walk through the city to resolve a particular issue. The right mind has it’s own logic, distinct from the left. My puppy. He ain’t too bright, but he does have a plan, simple as it is.

My puppy doesn’t have to walk through the entire city, he only has to walk through the part of the city I am interested in, and I am not interested in consistencies or inconsistencies, only non-inconsistencies and maybe non-consistencies if I’m getting metaphysical. (how many ways do you need to prove a lion is dangerous?)

And why does he walk? Because that’s what puppies (neurons) do. And if the doorman doesn’t let the puppy out occasionally, he’s going to shit on the carpet.

Below are a couple of examples. What I thought was Italian, seems to be Romanian. Why?

“education put the sub in sub-conscious” – el Loco Gringo

There is a large group of people incapable of independent thought. Ayn Rand calls them second-handers. Robert Wilson calls them robots, Ted calls them stupidos.  Geoff calls them parrots, Richard calls them hollow, Pauline calls them one-dimensional. I call them idiots. The why is a separate issue, but it’s basically social conditioning, primarily education and religion during the critical period of childhood development.

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 fractal (African) and circular (meso-American) In other words, all we are talking about here is one family of logic trees. The top down/bottom up, occidental/oriental, determinate/indeterminate, left/right, male/female, yin/yang, scientific method/yoga, serial/parallel, depression/manic (bi-polar), individuation/oneness, hell/nirvana, conscious/sub-conscious etc. family. I can’t speak to the others. But idiots are all left with no right. (In our society). I posit that the bipolar has more yin/yang than he knows what to do with. He has allowed idiots to become aware of his ability to muse.

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. 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 the gift of awareness to man and he has thrown away the gift and is playing with the pretty paper and ribbons. I’m getting frustrated again (a silent scream).

I have the native ability to use bottom up thinking. IE I am bipolar manic/depressive. The above example was shown in the top down mode. There is however another perspective, bottom up. It all has to do with how you slice and dice the input.

In the top down mode (binary, serial) the input IS grouped as:

left/right OR top down/bottom up OR yin/yang OR determinate/indeterminate OR etc, etc, etc.

In the bottom up mode (Boolean, parallel) the input CAN BE grouped as:

left AND top down AND male AND yin AND depression AND individuation AND hell etc., etc. OR right AND bottom up AND female AND yang AND manic AND oneness ANDnirvana etc, etc.

In the top down mode I use thinking and intelligence. Fast and easy, but un-nuanced

In the bottom up mode I use musing and SNAP. Slow and cumbersome, but more holistic Weighting is also a factor, an aggregate and accumulate process of biasing.

Consider Charlie Chimp, a hominid roaming the savanna in the paleolithic. He is in the bottom up mode musing on bonking Polly Protohuman again. His left gives a quick and definitive YES but his right says, MAYBE NOT, there’s the weighting to consider. IE the last time he bonked Polly, how many times did the alpha male hit him, how hard and for how long. He be musing here. Then a lion leaps out from behind a bush, and he drops out of this metaphysical bullshit mode (It takes at least 7 seconds to respond in the bottom up mode, In case you haven’t thought about it, that’s not a good thing) into the top down mode (>1/2 second) and hauls ass. It boils down to applying appropriate logic to relevant data.

Thus the question of the bipolar personality has more to do with the ability to balance power with finesse. You must ask the right question if you want a reasonable answer.  Bipolar asks the wrong question.  In fact, bipolar is a counterfeit concept.  It can be caused by genius, chemical imbalance, injury, hormones, etc.  In short, they’re clueless.

Basically, my sub-conscious ain’t sub. I am fully aware of the thought processes going on. The above description is not theory or conjecture. That IS how I view the symbolic relationships in the right mind. Or more accurately, that is how my right mind views the relationships. The entire concept of there being a condition called bipolar strikes me as silly. Consider one of the classic symptoms of bipolar. “can’t stick to topic”, or “flits from subject to subject with no apparent relationship.” This IS the bottom up thinking process in action, as the right mind searches for possible co-relations between maybe relevant information. This logic train was probably instigated by the psychologist, and the patient, thinking he is talking to an “expert” is doing his best to respond. If he doesn’t have a ready made response he flips into the bottom up mode. The reason an idiot can’t follow this process is not because the patient is crazy, but because the idiot is stupid. The idiot then “diagnoses” the patient as bipolar, tells him he’s crazy, and puts him on dopazine. By now, he is crazy. I am not saying that everyone who babbles incoherently is sane. I’m sure that there are a bunch of looney tunes out there. But most of my emotional problems stem from having to deal with idiots, stupid people doing stupid things for stupid reasons. Unless a bipolar can find a non-idiot psychologist, capable of dealing with his concepts on his terms, his prospects are slim. Until then, it’s better to keep the gift to himself.

Epiphany Express


KeytoAnn

I board the Express at Birthville. As I grow, I learn of the various marvels of the different landings along the way, the promises and perils thereof and how to deal with them. When I disembark at whatever landing appealed to me I find that I have just left the Jesus saves car. As the express pulls out I notice that there are many cars. Allah is almighty, Buddha brings peace, I’ll make you rich They’re all heathen, of course, we learned that in the Jesus saves car, we know the TRUTH. Maybe the landing we chose meets our expectations, or…………….., maybe not. If not, we may decide to try another landing, perhaps traveling in a different car. There are more people getting off than getting on, the passenger list continues to shrink. The brave among us may go through the door between the cars labeled FORBIDDEN. The reckless may wander the length of the train seeking the real TRUTH. I go to the front of the train to find out who’s driving this thing. I open the door marked TABOO. It is me. It is truth. I look back, the cars have been decoupled. It is MY truth. We are alone. We understand now that we will never reach Epiphany, there is only the journey. – el Loco Gringo
