“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)

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.

The Functional Mind II


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.

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.

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

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

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

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

Circular reasoning is an attempt to support a statement by simply repeating the statement in different or stronger terms. In this fallacy, the reason given is nothing more than a restatement of the conclusion that poses as the reason for the conclusion.

I don’t see it that way, I see it as “wheels within wheels” and not even “what goes around comes around” but “what goes around comes around goes around etc”. For instance a 260 day calendar would seem to make no sense unless one considers that the gestation period is 260 days. Thus if a woman conceived on Tzolkin 10 she could expect the birth on Tzolkin 10, As this was synchronized with the Haab (365 day calendar) no calculation was needed. This imprinting is canabilastic in nature, like the zombie, it want’s to eat your brains. It is the Ayn Rand Beast. The Beast OPL

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

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

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

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

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

The Toto Theory

(TOE TOE)
The wizard of OZ

 


 

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

TOE – Theory Of Everything

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The purpose of this paper is to propose a working model of the mind that accommodates both top down thinking (scientific method) and bottom up thinking (yoga) There will be no citations or references, this model being based entirely upon empirical reasoning and observation.

The purpose of this paper is to propose a working model of the mind that accommodates both top down thinking (scientific method) and bottom up thinking (yoga) There will be no citations or references, this model being based entirely upon empirical reasoning and observation.

Man has a unique brain, we have two cognitive minds, independent yet interconnected, and synchronous in nature.

The left mind uses top down thinking in a binary network. IE true/false. This is the Aristotelian view of the world we are all familiar with. This is what distinguishes us from animals. It interprets the input of the right mind into terms that can be quantified and made more useful. (sound, time, color etc.) It is the “individuation”. It is dominant. It operates in the time domain.

The right mind uses bottom up thinking in a weighted Boolean network. Possible results can be true/false/both/neither modulated by aggregate or accumulate input. This is the way an animal thinks. There is only now. This is the “connectedness”. This is the source of insight, creativity, “thinking outside the box”. It is sub-dominant. It operates in the frequency domain.

Monitoring and regulating the synchronicity is the ANN (allocated neural network), wetware dedicated to comparing the results of the calculations performed by the left and right minds and flagging discrepancies by setting trigger points on the algorithms, a decision tree on each mind. This algorithm is what a psychologist would call a personality.

Thus we have 3 ways of dealing with the world, dominant (left mind, skeptical) sub-dominate (right mind, receptive) and combined (“we’ll see”). This is no more complicated than putting on your doctor hat when you go to work, your wife/husband hat when at home, and your “we’ll see” hat in public.

The remainder of the brain is the unANN dedicated to memory, dreaming, collating etc. Yoga (see footnote 1) is a framework that is useful for accessing this area. Rather like a neuron trellis. It can bypass the constraints imposed by the left mind to directly access all experience, the universe, as perceived by the individual. This is nirvana.

Any thinking about the mind must start with the neuron. Simply put, the brain is a self programming amorphous mass of neurons. It is in the nature of the neuron to seek out, connect and communicate. Thus each mind is unique, as indeterminate as it is possible to get.

Psychologists are trapped into trying to describe an indeterminate problem with logic suitable only for a determinate problem.

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

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

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.

  • 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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

It ain’t real


Data Mining

is a useful model for explaining bottom up thinking. It seeks out and makes squishy correlations between seemingly unrelated data. (Nexialism) Using this model the computer operator is the conscious (left mind) the computer is the sub-conscious, (right mind) (data storage and analysis) and the computer screen is the interface (GUI) The brain fart occurs when the operator confuses the picture on the screen for the data, which in this case is ASCII (computer code).

IE the computer screen shows an interpreted sub-set of the data. But you must ask a question (curiosity) for the computer to respond (insight, intuition) with dreams, or symbols that it puts on the screen. A person who shows this ability in front of a psychiatrist is called Bipolar Manic/Depressive and the plug is pulled on the computer with dopazine or smarticide. In the mind this process is transparant to the user.

This is what is actually happening in the computer (right mind, bottom up thinking) the left mind interprets this and puts a picture on the screen that you can make sense of.  What this interpretation looks like depends on the software installed.  (wetware(imprinting + learning))  The data range being analyzed determines the tunnel.  BUT, unless you’re god,  both the ASCII (perception of reality) and the picture on the tube (interpretation of reality) are subsets of the data base.  (REALITY)

All this discussion of quantum mechanics, parallel universes, nirvana etc is quite literally

For a complete analysis of this problem see here  Calculus Mr Ted

So to answer the question “is the perception real or is the interpretation real?”  the answer is NO!

The following is from Oracle, the premier data mining technology. Although quite primitive compared to the mind, it is still pretty awesome.

Oracle

Generally, data mining (AKA bottom up thinking) is the process of analyzing data from different perspectives and summarizing it into useful information – information that can be used to increase revenue, cuts costs, or both. Data mining software is one of a number of analytical tools for analyzing data. It allows users to analyze data from many different dimensions or angles, categorize it, and summarize the relationships identified. Technically, data mining is the process of finding correlations or patterns among dozens of fields in large relational databases called data warehouses, ( AKA right mind)

Supervised Learning has the goal of predicting a value for a particular

characteristic, or attribute that describes some behavior. For example: (AKA curiosity)

The attribute being predicted is called the Target Attribute.

Unsupervised Learning has the goal of discovering relationships and patterns

rather than of determining a particular value. That is, there is no target attribute. (AKA sub-conscious free running)

Examples S1, S2, S3 illustrate Binary Classification – the model predicts one of

two target values for each case (that is, places each case into one of two

classes, thus the term Classification).

Example S4 illustrates Multiclass Classification – the model predicts one of

several target values for each case.

Example S5 illustrates Regression – the model predicts a specific target value for

each case from among (possibly) infinitely many values.

Example S6 illustrates One-class Classification, also known as Anomaly

Detection – the model trains on data that is homogeneous, that is all cases are in

one class, then determines if a new case is similar to the cases observed, or is

somehow “abnormal” or “suspicious”.

Example U1 illustrates Clustering – the model defines segments, or “clusters” of

a population, then decides the likely cluster membership of each new case.

Example U2 illustrates Associations – the model determines which cases are

likely to be found together.

Lupus Logic Fail


logic fail

“Top down thinking is a process of elimination, bottom up thinking is a process of aggregation” – el Loco Gringo

People think backwards.

How anyone could think it possible to discover new concepts using top down thinking baffles me. It is a logic flaw to start from a conclusion and work your way back to the question. How can people think that this is creativity? Top down thinking concentrates on what it ain’t, not what it is. This is why I don’t think of myself as smart, I think of other people as dumb. I was just listening to someone babble on about research he is doing on lupus. According to “experts” lupus can only be contracted by people with 2 X chromosomes, IE women. Why then do men get lupus? His thought process is limited by having a goal IE lupus as a woman’s disease. NO!!! lupus is a condition. The concept of lupus as a disease is bullshit. Let me explain. If you’re going to use top down thinking, at least apply it properly, in a process of elimination.

90% of lupus victims are women. (Not gender related)

60% of lupus victims have the Epson-Barr virus (Epson-Barr doesn’t cause it)

30% of lupus victims have DNA de-methylation (Nope, that’s not it either)

In the best of circumstances you have at least two separate causes

Saying that 90% of lupus victims are women is like a woman being 90% pregnant. NOPE! She is or she ain’t. It’s like the dead cat paradox. You’ve got to open the box and look. Whether the cat is dead or not is not dependent on what I think. It is, or it ain’t, Period, QED, end of story. If I don’t know it’s because I didn’t open the box. And you can’t open the box with with top down thinking. Once you open the box you can say “Yup, the cat’s dead” (or not) then you can use your top down thinking and say “The cat’s dead”. Saying the cat is maybe dead (50%) is a non-starter to me.

What does this mean? It means they are clueless. The concept of lupus is bullshit. It is a word only, made up by pseudo-intellectuals so that they can fool themselves into thinking they know what is happening. It is in the same class as consumption, which basically meant “got sick and died” It did not occur to them that there are a lot of reasons people “got sick and died”. If you want to find out what is happening you start with an individual. She’s got abnormalities a+b+c and has symptoms x+y+z. By cross-correlating abnormalities and symptoms you will reach a point where you know that abnormalities a+c for instance, ALWAYS causes symptoms y+z. NOW you give it a name. Now you can call it a disease. Grumpits, for instance. But lets say that grumpits is only responsible for 20% of the people who exibited symptoms of the now discredited lupus. Well, you’ve got another disease, that once you build up the data you can name. To assume that common symptoms have a common cause is bizarre. When, and if, they do figure out what is going on, it will be in spite of not because of top down thinking. Once you find out THEN you can use top down thinking. There is a term used in computers GIGO, Garbage In, Garbage out. The concept of lupus being a disease is garbage.

Looney Lowdown


A case study in the development of a defense mechanism

From an early age I realized I had superior cognitive abilities. I was quick to point out the logical and factual errors in the conclusions of others. (I used to get whipped a lot as a preschooler). I learned to keep my opinions to myself. Later, in school, I had the same problem. (I used to get beat up a lot by some and shunned by others). I called the former assholes and the latter idiots. A third type (Some of the adults) were comfortable to be around but I couldn’t hang around with them. I would later call them centered. By the time I reached high school I began to run into centered students (must be a maturing thing). These were viciously castigated by the idiots and assholes and tended to do things like join debating societies and chess clubs. (I joined the CAP) I did a lot of talking to counselors and psychologists. They were all idiots. I began to realize that people, in general, are bipolar (in the sense of the word before it got polluted by psychology) and expected responses in a yes/no, stop/go black/white pattern. By using a third unexpected response (going sideways) , I could side step the question. For instance if shown a picture of a half full/empty glass of water and asked if it was half full or half empty, I would respond “it’s twice as big as it needs to be”. This would cause a few seconds confusion in everyone, the idiots or assholes (I would later call these zombies, the brain eating living dead) would change the subject or go away, the centered would merely think it peculiar. PERFECT, I can avoid assholes and idiots (zombies) and still converse with the centered. It works to this day. In the military I am still running into a bunch of psychologists. (special weapons) still idiots. I ran into my first unlocked-centered person (a term I would use much later) in Germany. I wish she could have spoken English, or I spoke better German. I had met my first peer. Up until then I hadn’t even considered the possibility that there was someone else like me. I thought I was a mutant or something. In fact, I wasn’t crazy, the world was crazy. I was one of the few sane people in the world. It was depressing. After leaving the military, I started to realize that if I kept talking after the sideways it would sometimes affect the thinking of the other. Strange. If the words were front loaded, sometimes the 3 second window of opportunity could be kept open. i.e. if you could only get one word through, what would it be? what about the second, and the third? Oddly enough, it doesn’t seem to matter if the sentence makes grammatical sense. I began to be approached by people with the essential message “I hurt, heal me” So I did. I refined the QD fix and inserted some sage wisdom. (Wisdom is, by nature, simple, a meme, if you will). I’m probably 30 by this time. I dislike doing this unless strongly invited. It’s an invasion of personal space. Like walking in on my secretary while she’s hiking up her panty hose, I don’t care, but she does. It would be immoral of me and un-ethical of a psychologist to insert a meme with the intent of altering a persons thinking. Nothing wrong with inserting something for them to ponder so that THEY can re-consider adjusting THEIR defense mechanism. I began world wide traveling, mostly in Latin America. I preferred the cantinas. My Spanish is limited to “senorita, dos equos, undele, undele”. Even here the centered could spot me. Bizarre. I re-encountered one of these who affectionately hollered “Hey, loco gringo” and waved me over. I like it. I’m el Loco Gringo. These centered were protective of me, walking me back to the hotel because of the “mal hombres”. I rather like the idea of being crazy. It adds a certain panache to one’s persona don’t you think? like having a scar on your face.  “The scar? Just an old dueling scar. That’s why I hate these “first blood” matches, he had to leave himself wide open to score and I could have skewered him.  More chardonnay, My dear?”

If I wrap a perfectly valid ((if unorthodox) think hoochie-koochie) concept in crazy, I find the idiots can’t get past the crazy and go away. A non-idiot however is like a kid on Xmas morning. He can’t wait to discard the wrapper to see the treasure inside. Works perfectly, idiots go away, and I can talk to the non-idiots.

The Quintessential Man


What Every Woman Needs To Know About MenThere is a movie mid 1940’s in which Humphrey Bogart plays a cynical, hard bitten coarse owner of a bar and casino in Casablanca. (The name of the movie) In the movie there is a sequence in which a young woman approaches him to ask for advice on whether or not to sleep with the constable to obtain passage out of Morocco before the Nazi’s take over. She and her husband are Jewish and do not have the money to pay the bribes. Her husband is in the casino gambling the last of their funds. Rick blows her off, wanders into the casino and whispers to her husband “22 black” the wheel is spun and the ball lands in 22 black. The husband reaches for the chips and Rick whispers “let it ride” 22 black again. Rick says loudly “Cash in your chips and get out of here. Never come back.” Rick has gone through an elaborate ruse to hide (to others, and perhaps to himself) the fact that he has feelings (taboo). This is within every man.

The Quintessential Man

“In the 1942 film Casablanca, Rick’s Café Americain has a trick roulette wheel. The croupier can cause it to land on 22 at will. Rick (Humphrey Bogart) urges a Bulgarian refugee with whose case he becomes sympathetic to put his last three chips on 22 and motions to the croupier to let him win. After the man’s number dramatically comes up, Rick tells him to let it all ride on 22 and lets him win again. Although the details are not mentioned in the film (the croupier only notes that they are “a couple of thousand” down), it appears that Rick has given the man 3885 ((3*36*36)-3) francs.Three on any number would pay 35 to 1, “letting it ride” would result in a bet of 108(105+3)pieces, which would yield a payoff of 3780, or 3888 if he took his bet down.” – Wikipedia

Here’s the entire movie, Casablanca here, if you want it.

YinYanging


Mr Ted, 06/28/10

Aha! Back to having fun again.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Guardian


You used the word gatekeeper. Dan Bagley did a dissertation on it. (I looked it up) I could only read one page without buying it. I did however find a video describing it. If the video is accurate, he is only kind of right. It’s true if you’re talking about an idiot. The lattice is an imprint on the right hemisphere which blocks unapproved concepts. Getting into the right hemisphere through the left hemisphere is circuitous, but possible.

During the formative years beliefs are presented as and accepted as fact. This is forever. I think that the nirvana the yoga people talk about is, in most people, largely mental masturbation. They access the right hemisphere directly and are in a mind that has been starved by sensory deprivation. (see Jill bolte’s description of it) (Don’t need to publish this)

In many cultures the male children are removed from the parents at an early age to facilitate this imprinting. Moslem cultures for instance.

I’ll use the example of Sparta, only because it is the best documented. The whole culture was orientated for war. Abnormal infants were killed at birth. Males were separated after being weaned. Death in training was considered necessary to weed out the unfit. This imprint was PERMANENT. This is why 300 men were able to hold off the Persians at Thermopylae. Women were soldier making machines. The only people worthy of the honor of a burial were soldiers who died in battle and women who died in childbirth. This is what is happening to our children. This is what is so discouraging about our society, you can’t fix stupid. If education must mutilate the children, scar their faces or something, don’t mess with their minds. If you were a psychologist for the Spartan military you’d starve.

Contrast Sparta imprinting with what our GI’s go through in boot camp. This is an overlay only, which is why you have customers. I’m not going to speculate on what type of problems they have, but Theosophy’s “soul retrieval” therapy (shamanic) sounds real good.

“Whatever the case, its important to celebrate the return of your vital essence back to where it belongs – in the same way we would celebrate the return of a long lost loved one.”

In any case, I can’t use the word, shame, excellent word otherwise.

Mule


Alternative psychotherapy technique
el Loco Gringo
Yo-Yo U, Nada cum laude, top 98% of class

“Don’t turn down the mule, you might get a pretty one” – el Loco Gringo

Building upon the proud heritage of psychology dating back to the neolithic, I pause to give credit to the giants in the field. The six millenia old concept of the sub-conscious, as revealed in the Vedic scripts, or the concept of personality types as described by Effluvium the elder in ancient Greece. The humors can finally be verified by the Minnesota Multi-Phasic Personality Inventory, and I’m confident, that using the scientific method, in another thousand years they’ll be able to figure it out. Thanks to modern science we no longer have to dance naked around a patient with flickering candles shaking our beads and rattles chanting to expel the demons, we now use a dual core, 5 MHZ computer to drive strobe lights and random noise generators. We no longer have to drill holes in the skull to allow the black bile to escape, we can shoot them up with dopazene to kill of f their brain cells.

Truth is simple and beautiful
deceit is devious and ugly

I would humbly like to propose a less sophisticated model which I have occasionally found useful in dealing with healthy minds exhibiting unusual thought patterns. Although tedious and time consuming, ( it can sometimes take as long as 15 minutes to determine the problem and 30 seconds to effect a cure) it does appear to be effective. So as not to leave the impression that I am casting asparagus on the more nuanced in the hallowed halls of the mental health profession, I propose a less sophisticated vocabulary. After all, the mind does not care how we describe it, it just keeps doing it’s thing, providing us with the behavior patterns we need in a complicated and turbulent world.

Introduction to the mind
& the “key to ANN”

No, ANN is not that strato cumulus co-ed you were doing the ugly bump with in your third semester at Yo-Yo U. (keep both hands on the keyboard, this is important). ANN is an acronym for Allocated Neural Network. It is allocated to maintaining the decision tree inherent in all non-bacterial animal life on earth. I call this decision tree an algorithm. (Not to be confused with Ann and the Algorythms, with their unique blend of head banger, rap, biker, lullaby, classic, country genre of music which swept the nation a few years back) Let’s take the example of a very simple organism with limited sensory input. me/not-me, hunger, sex pretty simple algorithm, if it’s not me, fuck it, if I can’t fuck it eat it, if I can’t eat it or fuck it, avoid it. Pain probably means you came out on the wrong end of the eat/shit process. What do you think? 6 neurons maybe? give it 20, double that for the ANN and double that for upgrades/learning. It is the responsibility of the ANN to monitor the algorithms and send the signals to fuck, eat or avoid as appropriate.

>>Fast forward to 1 million years ago. Picture Lucy, the debonair and demure damsel of pre-human simian haute couture. Picture a chimpanzee walking across the savannas waist deep in grass, daintily scratching her crotch crickets and looking under the occasional rock to see if there are any slugs to eat. Nature calls and she squats to take a dump. A twig snaps, triggering a decision point on her primary algorithm. Oops, this could be important. This is probably not the time to use her superior mental capacities she is capable of with her programmable ANN and secondary algorithms. She needs to react, not respond. Her colon and bladder spasm, her adrenalin levels go through the roof, and she gets out of squat, looking to the sound of the snap to see if it’s lunch time, and if so, for whom. Is she to be the eater or the eatee? Stay tuned for the next episode. Hit the pause. ||

Here we have a pretty Sophisticated critter, several layers of algorithms and about 300 cc of neurons, providing a limited reasoning capacity. I guess she ate lunch because her G G G G G Great granddaughter evolved wetware, a self re-programming awareness. This gave her the ability to control much more memory. A paradigm shift in mental capacities. We’ll call her Eve.

We are not smarter because we evolved more neurons
We evolved more neurons because we are smarter

>>Fast forward to now. Gina sits in her cubicle. She has reached a decision point. Should she do Tom in the stock room or go home for a nooner? In 1/2 second she heads for the stock room. ( the decision was made last night when she had a wet dream about Tom, that’s why it only took 1/2 second. Oh no, Tom isn’t there! Another decision point. Got to think, 1/2 second fire up the cerebral cortex (hate to do that its 3oo calories per hour, and slow) access left hemisphere, 42 minutes left for lunch, Too late to go home, 3 seconds, access right hemisphere, Yup, still horny, 3 seconds. Back to the sex/ love algorithm. Gonna have to settle for tossing off in the ladies room while thinking about Tom. Hit the pause ||

Lets look at what happened here during these 7 seconds. Gina was knocked sideways off her sex/love algorithm by the fact that Tom was not in the stock room. The ANN is not multi-tasking, it cannot process input data AND access the un-Allocated Neural Network (unANN) any input data goes into short term storage until the exit sex/love algorithm is processed. After the 7 seconds the this input data is read into the ANN and processed, merging seamlessly with Gina’s memory of events, giving the illusion of continuity. IT HAS BYPASSED THE SEX/LOVE ALGORITHM.

Introducing Joe, Gina’s boss, he’s fat, his breath smells, he’s got hair growing out of his ears and he laughs when he farts. He is on Gina’s sex/love algorithm with a big NO!!!!!

<< Rewind 7 seconds Oh no, Tom isn’t there 1/2 second passes, Joe walks in and says “lets go up in my office and lock bumpers” algorithm finishes processing and Gina takes a couple steps (1/2 second actually) after Joe before her primary algorithm’s fight/flight mechanism kicks in and she runs screaming from the stock room.

WHOA!!!!! What happened here??? She actually considered doing that slob. This is some powerful shit here folks. It means there is a 3 to 6 second window of opportunity to insert a concept for the patient to reconsider instead of battering away at his defense mechanisms session after session. This isn’t some deep seated psychosis which needs analysis and in depth therapy.. Generally speaking. in a normal mind behaving abnormally, THE DEFENSE MECHANISM IS THE PROBLEM. You’re talking to it, it’s right there in front of you. It’s that simple folks. Your job is to introduce a concept which will cause the patient to reconsider his defense mechanism. All you are doing by battering away at his defense mechanism is re-enforcing it. this approach involves 4 steps, setup, sideways, insert, backout. The sideslip depends on the patient.

EXAMPLE;

Black Christian lady “She called me a nigger”
“White folks have a name for people like that”
(setup)
” What?”
(secret word, interest)
“We call them assholes”
(sideslip)
(shock response)
“She is occupying rent free space in your mind”
(insert)
” Look at her, you aren’t occupying rent free space in her mind”
(begin backout)
“She’s completely forgotten about you.”
“God gave you that mind, it is yours and no one else’s.”
(scolding tone)
” Do NOT allow anyone else to use it.”
(begin maintenance)
“Just like cleaning your kitchen, get your broom and sweep all those assholes in a pile and out the door, don’t forget under the refrigerator.”

That’s it, she’s fixed.

Men “yup, whites were supposed to give all blacks 40 acres and a mule after the war” (setup)
“Don’t need the mule, but I’ll take the 40 acres”
“don’t turn down the mule, you might get a pretty one”

same spiel but shoveling mule shit instead of assholes

Another is The French Connection” – “Ever pick your feet in Poughkeepsie FrenchConnection Thanx to Jutta Although the timing is off. but that’s just a movie

Another is my daughter who heard at a poker game “I breath through elephant ears, it makes my trunk grow long”

Another is the “regroup” meme.

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

Beliefs


“We all have concepts that we believe to be true.  For instance, most of us have heard and believe as   factual that ”the shortest distance between two points is a straight line.”  Likewise, that the sum of “1 +   1 = 2 ” is a premise upon which virtually all of us would agree.  These concepts are at the core of our individual and collective belief systems, serving as building blocks    upon which we mold more complex, future beliefs.  Much like building a house, our most elemental   beliefs are deployed in the foundation of our belief system abode.  As our belief structure rises, we  utilize these more fundamental beliefs in the fabrication of the compound and complex beliefs from  which the upper floors are constructed.     It is no surprise that once one adopts a point of view, he doggedly maintains its accuracy, even when   presented with evidence to the contrary.  This is particularly true of political and religious convictions,  and the reason for the common admonishment not to argue about these subjects in polite company  It  is the unusual individual who challenges commonly-held beliefs and, in so doing, establishes the  foundation upon which to construct a new belief system.  And so, as you consider the problems and   options of today, challenge your beliefs, even those that you hold most deeply. “

For myself, I don’t believe in belief.

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.

Inner Child


Inner Child Workshops
Whereas a normal mind has two algorithms in tandem (both), and a multiple personality has two in parallel (either/or).  A person with inner child problems has only one algorithm,  a one dimensional personality.   Regression is the only way I have been able to reach this algorithm.  When contact is established, I have to keep in mind that this algorithm has been locked into a childhood pattern and is unable to function in an adult mode.  Once emerged this algorithm is very fragile and will require long term therapy to bring the algorithm up to speed.  I cannot (and do not want to) imagine what kind of emotional trauma they suffered to cause this.  It is very painful for me to do.  Fortunately, it was an educational type class held at the Houston Medical Center and I could pass them off to the monitor.  Each session there were five (different) student observers, which would not speak or respond.  They were motioned out before the session ended. The group itself consisted of three really freaky people,  I don’t see how they could have functioned.  Maybe 35 50 yrs old. The other three were mid 20’s and seemed OK to me.   I suspect they were psychologists.  I am not emotionally strong enough to handle this kind of stuff.  I had to back out, it’s just too spooky for me.  It’s like seeing the exorcist, except it’s real..  I don’t know the long term outcome.  I wish them well.
Bear in mind, this was some 30 years ago, and is only my current take on the memory of events.  The actual experience was much less cohesive.  Nobody seemed to be suprised by events.  Last time I’m ever going to volunteer for a group.  Or adopt children for that matter.  Ellen Crestman, last I checked she was head of Harris County CPS.  Forgot about her, that’s two psychologists that aren’t idiots.  Since I wrote this I’ve done couple of other posts on the topic.

Balance


Balance

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

It is clear, with a better visualization of the dendrite system, that making harmonious decisions requires more than centering. The “self identity” and the “me identity” must be kept in balance to allow un-biased decisions. Ie The ambient aggregate output of the dendrite system must be kept close to zero, else our decisions can go widdershins. We won’t be able to make rational decisions.

Me identity-left hemisphere, I am individuated from the universe.

Self identity-right hemisphere, I am one with the universe.

A centered person will strive to maintain the balance. For instance, in considering joining the military, a person may consider the cons “could get killed” against the pros, college, housing and decide they balance or become positive. Or he could be a warrior by nature and joining becomes a win-win situation. Speaking to a soldier with a leg wound, he expressed concern that they wouldn’t let him go back to Iraq. I asked why he wanted to go back. He responded “I’m a warrior, that’s what I do, Iraq’s where the war is.”

The yin/yang symbol is a metaphor for the constant dance between the masculine and feminine energies within each one of us. Taiji is the balance of these forces.

(Centering is what allows this dance to take place)

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

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

Taboo


The key to ANN

Definition; A taboo is a strong social prohibition or ban against words, objects, actions, or discussions considered undesirable or offensive activity such as restrictions on discussion of controversial topics (law, morality, ethics, manners, politics, religion, race).

Origin;

There are varying explanations for the origin of taboos. While some explanations are anthropological and explain taboos using history and cultural experiences, other explanations are psychoanalytical and explain taboos as an unconscious phenomenon passing through generations.

Reality;

Pride is the name of the beast. Another word for pride is self worth. A person who has self worth is centered. He is guilty of the sin of pride. He has broken the ultimate taboo. The origin of this taboo is in the neolithic period, where society consisted of a dominant Alpha male and subservient slaves. In a society like this, one tended to keep one’s opinions to oneself. We no longer live in the neolithic. We live in a complicated, turbulent society. This taboo, which is nothing more than self mutilation, has outlived it’s usefulness. Unlock your mind so that you can see the beauty of the world and the glory of man. And know that you are a part of it.

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

In our hubris we think that we can understand the human mind by comparing it to that of a chimp, but we are as far evolved above the chimp as the chimp is above the earthworm. An evolutionary miracle has occurred, the greatest leap since the first few neurons gathered into a clump to form the proto-brain. However, as the chimp evolved from the earthworm, we evolved from our simian ancestors with the same behavior patterns. The taboo against pride has been retained in our psyche. This has left a hole in our soul, an aching painful overwhelming need, that we seek to fill with religion, ideology, spirituality, greed, career and other false gods. I wish to give mankind a gift, a key to unlock themselves from the chains of this vestige of the past and to marvel at the wonder that man is.

That god we seek is within us

This simple and beautiful truth unfolds to reveal man’s place in the universe. All is laid bare. Ethics, philosophy, sociology, psychology, spirituality, politics, economy, justice become revealed with all their virtues and faults.

“You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars, you have a right to be here”

The Circle Jerk


OK children, recess is over. The omniscient maharishi emeritus el Loco Gringo is gonna butt in and straighten you out then he’s gonna butt out and watch you go squishy again.

Because the universe is infinite and we aren’t we have to view it through tunnels. The data coming in through our senses is perceived and interpreted as a flock of geese. This data is evaluated through intrinsic/extrinsic processing (call it yin/yang, top down/bottom up, constructionist/reductionist, integration/differentiation if you will, doesn’t matter, the word is not the concept.) This is all inside the skull. Outside the skull is the wind which the yangers will vociferously proclaim has the property of blowing, with grandiose theories and math to “prove” that the wind, does in fact blow. The yinners will vehemently protest that the wind actually sucks and have elaborate theories and math to “prove” that the wind does in fact suck. The wind, for it’s part, doesn’t give a shit what words we use to describe it’s activities, it just keeps on doing what what we describe as blowing (or sucking if you prefer)

It’s all mental masturbation

you guys are having a circle jerk.

Summary:

In re previous letter you may discern I am in some distress. I see no way out of this dilemma. I will try to explain in terms you can understand. Forget what you know. You are incorrect. You’ll have to follow me on faith alone. I may need to teach you enough of how the mind works to pull me out of a funk. It will have to be by rote. should take about 10 minutes. Just trust me.

I want to talk about cognitive ability. In a normal (I have refrained from using that word, it is distressing, but true) intelligence is measured by the IQ test. Mine was measured at 161 I would guess yours in that ball park. But the IQ test ignores the part of the mind that makes us human. It assumes we are super chimps, the only difference being the number of neural cells. WRONG!!! I want to introduce the SQ test (SNAP quotient Synchronous Neural Access Potential). Lets transfer the results of the IQ test over to the new scale so as to accurately measure overall conative ability. While yours is still about 161 mine is 200m300? I don’t know, it’s off the scale. This has nothing to do with how the brain is made. Mine is no different than yours, other than the obvious. The problem is that a normal”s thinking patterns are flawed, meaning that a normal cannot reach his true potential. As long as I keep the logic paths short, I can communicate effectively. Anything more spins off into irrelevancies. There is a bug in the wetware. Whether this is inherent or introduced, I don’t know. I am probably the only person on earth capable of resolving this issue, I don’t even know if it’s possible. And I don’t have much time. And I can’t communicate this because the people who I try to communicate with have flawed logic patterns. In my case this potential has been realized, in yours it hasn’t. What a waste, we could have been to the stars 2 million years ago. It is tragic.

You think backwards

Perhaps intelligence is an evolutionary dead end and it is all for the best.

I have a very simple problem. Any attempts to explain it rapidly devolve into irrelevant complexities.

Short Form

The problem is: I live in a world in which reality doesn’t matter <stop>

How do I deal with it?<end>

Communication is futile

Long Form

Since people like to put things in little baskets so that they can make believe they know what’s going on, I’ll put the posed question on abstraction in little baskets. I’ll make 3 baskets. Call them A,B,C. Since I don’t know how many psychologists there are I’ll pick a number say 20,000. I’ll put them in basket A. If I’m going to be abstract about psychologists, they’re idiots. I’ll take another basket (a tiny, miniscule basket) and scoop out some of of these psychologists. One of these psychologists is Dr. B. This basket I will call non-idiots. (how many, I don’t know. 500 is probably wildly optimistic, I only know of 2) I will pick one marble. Teresa. This marble is indeterminate, unique, out of the 6 billion people there is only one. So I take this Teresa marble over to a football stadium sized basket (C) and give it a fling. The mere concept that you can be abstract about a singularity is absurd. It’s a conundrum, oxymoronic (heavy on the moron) in the extreme. A terminal logic fail. Even then all you could say is that she’s human. Probably female because of her name. That’s about it. And I don’t even know this hypothetical persons name. I couldn’t even find her. I couldn’t even find basket A, much less B. To think that one can reverse engineer the problems, aspirations, life history, etc. of a singularity goes past silly , past dumb, past stupid past idiot it is insanity. It’s like dividing a number by 0. Here be dragons. To hear a thought like that come out of the mouth of any person is disturbing. To hear it come from a person I like who is an expert in the mental sciences, intelligent, compassionate, sincere, educated, centered, someone I would rate in the top 5% in terms of smartness and more importantly, someone I like, scares the shit out of me. It is mind-boggling. And I have a high boggle threshold. Ayn Rand is right, there is indeed an “empty, ravening beast devouring the minds of humanity” That’s why I don’t like to deal with people. It is painful to see what people do to themselves.

It is distressing to know that someone I like has self-mutilated her mind.

In my terms you are not an idiot, you are not an asshole. You are locked. What is the English word for that? How do I explain to someone? The words don’t exist. English doesn’t work. Psycho babble is worse, it obfuscates truth in meaningless blabbity-blo. German maybe, Sanskrit, Aramaic, Hokien, Swahili? Math would work. The chaos equations would describe the phenomenom. Even then people would pontificate on the profundity of the math, and expand on it, and claim to understand it. But they would not. The math is not the concept, the math would only describe the concept, but that would be close enough. But the fickle finger of fate has destined that I was born too early and Mandelbrot too late. In like manner Ayn Rand.

It is interesting to note that Ayn Rand, with a typical female viewpoint, views herself as being locked in a room with the beast, while I, with a typical male viewpoint, view myself in a room surrounded by the abyss. Whichever name you choose, it is evil.

In answer to your query on how I kept my “spark”, As I mentioned I was educated by Benedictine Monks, an order dedicated to education. Catholics believe that religion doesn’t belong in education, it’s a seperate issue. Religion is between the individual and God. And a church is only a place for the individual to have a quiet place where he can commune with God. Probably half the students at Menard were non-catholic, with blacks, jews and others. As a result my education was secular. It was heavy on “lab” in chemistry we would spend half an hour talking about an experiment, then a half hour doing it. Instruction was held in the lab. In language (Latin for me), we would learn in the first half, then speak it in the second half. In the second semister Latin was taught in Latin. One thing that was hammered home was “WE CAN’T TEACH YOU, WE CAN ONLY SHOW YOU HOW TO LEARN”. It was up to us to learn. The student’s job was to learn, the instructors job was to present the data. Tests were mostly composition, The understood question on every test was “why”. An explanation of our answer was to be appended at the end of every paper. Many of the maxims I learned, I still use. For instance, on writing a paper “Tell them what you’re going to tell them, then tell them, then tell them what you told them”. and “A word means what it means, no more, no less”. We were free to explore the topic in any direction we chose. The more creative, the better. We chose the course (direction) for our education. Targeted (dis-ambiguated) words were encouraged “Lore” for instance, or heraldic. When a word has multiple meanings, I append the definition I intend. I still do it. I learned this in HS. I still proof my writing for ambiguation. This is where words fail me, there are no words in English that accurately describe the concepts in my head. I’ve included a of couple links on a modern Benedictine Monk, check his bonifides, it may supprise you. What a unique education, how at odds with public education. A new avenue of exploration. I shall contact Bro Hicks with a question on Benedictine Educational Philosophy.

Another reason is I’m confrontational by nature.  If someone tries to slap me down, I slap back.

I put my model for how the mind works on one page. WOW!!! Try explaining that in English or Psycho-babble.

Understand that psychology, is only a small part of my interest, which I suppose could be loosely described as man’s relationship with the universe (so far, it may change) I am at present dipping into the psychology basket to further my understanding. My model representation is to be considered only a tool I use to satisfy my particular needs, specifically, to understand the TMI Block and more generally why people put things in baskets making the data difficult to retrieve. The hole in the soul concept came from the spirituality basket. The taboo came from the zoology basket. The QD Fix came from the anthropology basket. The wolf came from the finance basket. The beast came from the ethics basket. Why must there be baskets when discussing human nature? None of these things make sense without considering the others. The illogical contortions you have to go through without considering all the data is monumental. All of the data is there, it’s just in different baskets.

Consider the following logic train;

Germans drink more beer than Americans or English and have less heart attacks

French drink more wine than Americans or English and have less heart attacks

Japanese drink more saki than Americans or English and have less heart attacks

Conclusion; Speaking English causes heart attacks

Saki, Wine and Beer are in different baskets and so not considered

It is insanity. It is self mutilation. This insanity exists in each of the soft baskets. It takes someone who is unlocked to skip across these baskets and pull out the relevant data. It takes someone who is centered to restore reason within each basket. Idiots and assholes just screw things up.

And we haven’t even discussed the commons, justice, education, parenting, values and others I haven’t thought of..

So far I’ve figured out the following aspects of the beast

Who=Everyone has it

What=Rejection of facts and logic

How=Algorithms field forbidden data

When=Neolithic earliest known instances

Dimorphism


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Consider the blobfish or the warthog.

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

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

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

Functional Neuron


The Functional Neuron

(Bottom up Psychology)

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

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

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

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

Confabulator

Weighting

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

An Accumulator is an apparatus for storing energy or power

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

Bearing in mind that the electronic analogy is an only an analogy, The diagram shows 8 gates (neurons). The neuron actually controls two systems, the dendrites and the axons. The axon connections have to be close together, the dendrites can be across the brain. Now we’ll do an analogy of an analogy.

Single Neuron Theory

Neural Network


Neural Network

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

“Neurons that fire together, wire together.”

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

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

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

Education has destroyed creativity in the soft sciences.

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

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

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

ANN & the Algorythms


& the ANN

Allocated Neural Network

co-starring

The unANN

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

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

The ANN

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

Wetware

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

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

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

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

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

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

The unANN

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

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

Rene Descartes “I think therefore I am.”

ANN “NO, I think therefore you are.”

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

AlgorithmInterfaceAlgorithm Interface

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

Algorithms

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

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

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

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

The Neuron Trellis


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

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



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

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

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

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

The Model

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

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

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

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

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

Framework

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

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

The Neuron


“Go forth and multiply”

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

The Sub-Set Logic Fail

Confusing Reality


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

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

Some of my shortcuts on the centered.

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

Essentially, they are non-idiots.

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

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

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

To summarize there are 3 main types of brain fart

TBF – Taoist Brain Fart, Inability to analyze

ABF – Aristotelian Brain Fart, Inability to generalize

RBF – Religious Brain Fart, Inability to spiritulize
