Or are we unknowing of all the details God has going to keep His creation intact idk but he cannot reveal all ....I hear
What details besides the idea of symmetry? I like Occham's razor: the least necessary assumptions. If more are required as the evidence piles up, then
proceed is your propositions. Until then, its over-zealous and unstable to reach for what you should be leaving for a later time. I see the
''ultimate' as something that probably is, but in the present state of society, its necessary for us to build slowly, and naturally, towards it. Think
of a rubber band; the farther away the two points in the dynamic, the more stretched - and strained - the band becomes. Love is sort of that force
that brings the two closer together, and hence, relaxes the strains. All complex dynamical systems work like this.
On a purely psychodynamic level, if a) you're an animal, b) you're constructed by threat-safety dynamics c) your feelings represent those dynamics d)
those dynamics represent a symmetry between self and world e) your thinking represents the linguistic patterns that correlate with the threat-safety
dynamics, then f) all thinking done in your head which doesn't follow the logic of threat-safety dynamics are basically functioning within those
threat-safety dynamics in an unconscious way.
Your feelings are representations of these historical facts; negative feelings are never mysteries,
but reference points along a line of development which has represented situations in ways determined by how those situations have historically
affected them (i.e. its bidirectional). So, to repeat: matter is made by symmetry; your made of cells organized to 'attune' to the various dynamics
occurring around them. The affective body integrates homeostasis processes and the motivational functions they generate for functional-structural
ends. But with attachment, the environment now either a) threatens us with meanness or b) makes us feel safe. The environment selects our states based
upon purely preexisting behavioral categories of threat and safety. Nice cues select good states and reinforce them; negative cues constrain affective
processes and cause heightened vigilance.
The self-other relationship is synergistic. The deeper that safety is developed, the greater the brain, the larger and more coherent its functioning.
It is, more or less, how we understand ourselves vis-a-vis other selves, and how we evaluate the situations we're in, and how those we're relating to
Ideally, I should be for the Other as well as myself - in that order. I should trust and show faith in their ability to be coherent, but if they fail
to be, I can patiently remind them of how unfair they're being. It is purely logical to expect other people to recognize their ability to live
logically i.e. to recognize the incoherence, and dissonance, associated with ignoring recognition dynamics when their own being - the one they're
presently speaking from - is constructed that way.
There are two parts of self-experience. We can be agencies, or we can be passive. Both parts are relevant to the origin of motivation; the latter in
particular, informs the former, as the former is primitive at birth and the latter is at the will of the environment for its sense of identity and
