Some people have a radical way of seeing things. The radicalism shatters them on the inside into oppositional states. Imagine two magnets with
identical charges. Two states - or states of self experience - but there is something that keeps them "apart" from one another.
Its an intuitively obvious concept.
The brain arises like intertwining vines, emanating outward from embryogenesis into a entangled structure with distinct fiber paths carrying out
specific functions within the organism becoming. Diffusion Tensor Imaging has enabled us to think about our brains as a self-organizing system of
neurons, glia, and endothelial cells which perform their configurations for the "reactive face" - or the person and self - the emergent property, of
the self organizing dynamic. Still, it looks a bit like other organic structures
The Human nervous system, 'extracted' from its body, would like this:
A long tail part, with branches and vines extending out spatially into important centers - feeding and being fed by the cells around it with which
they communicate. The neural mass that gathers again in the middle - the spinal chord - to go upwards towards the "cap" of the mass superstructure,
where information is consolidated and expresses as a living, feeling, planning, knowing -- flowing -- consciousness of the external world.
Imagination - Good and Bad.
How insane would it be if this consciousness began thinking it could arbitrarily create and change other people and the world within which they
What I've described and showed in images above is a rule-based causality - hence the emergent coherence of the structures - similar between a
mushroom and a human nervous system - where repeating causal rules on the flow of semsiosis (information) generates self-similar fractal patterns. It
is physics that this even happens - and so it needs to be understood that the very construction and matter of our bodies is fundamentally
constrained by the rules which generate the structure-function.
Said differently, a Human can't actually be a goat, and a goat can't ever be a Human. The external forms of animals intimate the inner form of their
experience of living. If it looks dull to be a goat - you're right, it is. Perception and Action are fundamentally integrated opposites which
mutually influence one another in the construction of our sense of self. We are 1) taking, symbolizing beings, who only can communicate with one
another because 2) we interpenetrate one another's at a basic systems level. Humans are a super-system of forms: this world is the "downside",
whereas the next world - may be related to dark matter - would be the flip side of every interaction you have ever had - on any person you've ever
affected. You and that person constitute a complementary pair. In that particular moment of interaction, you can be said to be 'existentially
entangled'. You're life - your living, is you and your perspective as a Human person or Self. But reality is larger than you: you emerge from a
larger Self-Other structure, and so this world is your perspective, whereas the 'other' is the other perspective.
Get the drift?
If this makes sense to you - as it does for me, then every interaction is fundamentally meaningful to our existence, inasmuch as everything we do will
have some consequence whether we like it or not. Now, you can just accept this - live life with moderate self-control and deal with the after shocks
when they come - or be a monk and seek perfection in your living - or try to be good, but to maximize fun times, pleasure, kindness, compassion, sex,
etc. The first is a typical secular way of being. The second is a path chosen by some people - seems excessive to me (existence exists for a reason
i.e. its awesome). The third is my cup of tea and seems to be the most popular one.
Yet a 4th exists - of the Donald Trump, "4th Reich" kind, of complete unreality - lunacy - that has some sort of secretive conviction in some
philosophy that somehow preserves something about reality and existing because why else would they act this way? It's a mystery - clearly, the global
elite are a group of nihilists or naive spiritualists - and power is what it is: it is a massive concentration of psychological energy into a persons
skull. Money - the means to do things - is very very seductive, very very enticing, and so entails - for some people of a high intelligence - the
regulation of awareness and feelings so that "what I feel right now" isn't idolized - i.e. to not let myself become naively super-involved in the
feeling and the impression it creates in me. This state - a pride state - increases along the lines of fractal dynamics - a feedback loop between
consciousness (perception) and the effect (affect!) created by the feeling of pride. When consciousness views and experiences itself in a positive way
- a state of pride - we invest within ourselves an energy and potential for growth and development. Pride is fundamental to the evolution of Human
affectivity - yet it was intrinsically linked to interpersonal recognition processes.
There's no denying that we evolved in tribes. It is
fundamental that tribal contexts are fundamentally different from today's contexts - yet seldom a psychologist of philosopher has recognized the
significance of this difference.
Is this because we insulate ourselves from the effects of normal living? Yes. We - the children of the west - have evolved in a social reality which
inculcates megalomania in its inhabitants. From the right - with libertarian people like Alex Jones, or Fox news, and even some spiritual movements
which operate from a naive idealism which thinks "anything is possible", without considering the system conditions we operate through - and the
constraints they impose on what were allowed to believe.
For instance, evil cannot be something you do. If evil means, acting against others, hurting them, knowingly hurting them and taking pleasure in their
suffering - then in the body's language, its as if a normally and naturally clockwise system has suddenly got the idea to change itself and make
itself counter-clockwise. Okay. Interessssstttttting. I imagine the Pharoahs of Egypt thought something like this.
Is that not true - btw? Isn't their something fundamentally eerie about Egyptian religion? A lot of people are still very naive about the
organism-world connection, but a desert people will not normally produce a nice philosophy. Think about the examples we have of desert people, and
think of the harshness - the "dustiness" - like sand paper is what their "human touch" feels like. Desert living is hard,
and so it
hardens the feelings of people.
Some people speak so highly of the ancient Egyptians even though it is well known that they were a slave based
society. That they were imperialists - and the product - of war, fighting, and bullying.
Good hearted people get sucked into bad things - and as Philip Lombardo rightly says, we all have the ability to turn evil - to see evil and
understand its enticements - and so be able to empathize with people who have been sucked in, but are too dissociative to change.
For the most part, all of this is harsh. Reality is harsh - and this may be because we are radically one being -
