Vegetable Oil

The problem is that many governments and corporations, rather than serve any constructive function, simply protect parasitism (unnecessary bureaucratic, political, academic, and priest classes). As a result, each degree of increased capacity for intelligence and self defense is a cost in the eyes of the corrupt individuals who hide behind colour of law. Conversely, natural law, the process we are scratching the surface of, functions more strongly with each degree of capacity for intelligence and self defense.

Integration of many various personalities and perspectives. Value for co-operation and rule of law? Social harmony and psychological harmony? Role of dissonance? Order/chaos…

“The concept of possessing different psychological characteristics is further explored by Weininger in his treatment of the genius. For him, it is obvious that the genius isn’t merely a gifted being. Genius isn’t a talent, nor is it a quality that can be learned or developed. The genius is rather ‘… a man who discovers many others in himself. He is a man with many men in his personality. But then the genius can understand other men better than they can understand themselves, because within himself he has no only the character he is grasping, but also its opposite. Duality is necessary for observation and comprehension … in short, to understand man means to have equal parts of himself and the opposite in one.’

In a way, the genius is a person who hosts a dialectic dynamism that allows the rich prospects of the world to come alive. To a certain extent, Weininger hints here at the positive qualities of schizophrenia, ideas that were further explored by Lacan years later.

The genius is always telling us something about the world that we didn’t know before. The scientist observes the material world, and the philosopher looks into the realms of ideas. The artist derives insight by looking into him or herself: ‘In art, self-exploration is exploration of the world…’.

Weininger argues that genius is a subject to the ‘strangest passions’ and the ‘most repulsive instincts’, but that those passions are opposed by other internal characters. For example, ‘Zola, who has so faithfully described the impulse to commit murder, didn’t commit murder himself because there were so many other character in him.’ Zola, according to Weininger, would recognize the murderous impulse better than the murderer himself, rather than merely being subject to it. The ability to persuasively depict a fictional character is attributable to the fact that character and its opposites are well-orientated within the artist’s psyche.” – Gilad Atzmon, The Wandering Who? (Page 92) [Emphasis Added]

The most accurate and powerful Rule of Law accounts for the many angles that retaliation can be de-incentivized along. The west appeals to this concept as foundational and so inaccuracies stifle the project.

The Answer To The Peterson Harris Debate

– Trust –
The reason legitimizing mistrust of the West? Deviations from Rule of Law ruin trust? Genetic incentive to preserve commons that maximize agency? http://billjoslin.com/2017/03/23/sheepdog-nomocracy/

– Wolf Sovereignty –
“Certain segments of propertarianism which trend toward classism, and “right to rule” sentiments might present a “code smell” regarding the concept stack, meaning it might be a result of a deeper error then what can be seen on the surface.

I think the error stems from not seeing autonomy opposed to property as the foundation for natural law.

Note: everything in propertarianism can still be correct in all forms, but an error such as the inversion of autonomy and property would result in propertarianism replicating some of the same errors of past civilizational systems.

I propose that autonomy, unimposed agency, which only exists on the individual level, presents a solution.”

– Sheepdog Sovereignty –
“Natural Law based on autonomy provides decidability in creating laws.”

“Natural Law based on autonomy provides limitations to rule.”

Notes on the Form Within by Karl Pribram, MD

Superego as Psychological Representation Resulting from Fundamental, Interpersonal Nurturing Rather than Oppressor
“The ‘superego’ is therefore a process during which society, in the role of a caretaking person, tries to meet and help satisfy drive-induced needs, not to suppress them. This is contrary to the ordinary interpretation given today which holds that the ‘superego’ acts to suppress the ‘id.'” -Page 243

Reality Testing as Core Process: Memory-Motive Structure

“Reality Testing: an input is sensed by a person. The input becomes unconsciously-that is, automatically-processed in our memory-motive structure. A comparison between the results of the memory-motive processing and that input is then made consciously before action is undertaken. This “double loop of attention,” as Freud called it, is necessary because action undertaken without such double-checking is apt to be faulty.” -Page 243

Perhaps being able to maintain this loop for maximal efficiency is cultivated by a balance of confronting danger while successfully embracing a relationship of love and safety with society (the other: the part of nature that appears beyond the bounds of a given individual of nature). This excerpt from the Tao Te Ching seems relevant to holding these vital processes of Motivation and Reality Testing in some balance (although there is a role for argumentation and confrontation is not to simply be avoided entirely, but systematically minimized by practicing Rule of Law and science):

“Those who are superior do not argue, those who are
inferior love to argue.
The highest virtue is not virtuous, the lowest virtue
clings to virtue.
Clinging to it is not called the virtue of the Tao.
The reason people do not attain the virtue of the Tao,
Is because they have wild minds, their spirits are disturbed.
Their spirits being disturbed, they cling to the myriad things.
Clinging to the myriad things, they develop cravings.
In developing cravings, they become anxious.

Full of anxiety and wild thoughts, they distress their
bodies and minds,
And encounter ruin and disgrace, drifting through life
and death,
Eternally drowning in the sea of bitterness, forever
astray from the perfect Tao.
The perfect and eternal Tao is naturally attained by those who awaken to it.
To awaken to the Tao, be constantly clear and still.”

The author is recounting Freud’s ideas and expanding on them, it will take a closer reading to see where the thoughts of one ends and another begins. In nay case, these are two points that took my attention as primary to the overall model being discussed. Further analysis to follow…

Causality 101 and the Parasympathetic Nervous System

Pre-Release draft… ideas under development

photo-1447069387593-a5de0862481e

The world is a place that can inspire great cynicism, hope, and naivete.  Certainly, the development of the universe, of matter becoming aware of itself holds great potential.  It appears we can implement our will individually, and synergistically. Many great accomplishments have been  made down that exact path and many shortcomings as well.  The shortcomings are so numerous, in fact, that they warrant hypothesizing if such constant discord is innate and/or so heavily ingrained that there is little possibility of seeing a world with significantly less suffering, and significantly more expression of the seemingly limitless good that is also ours to create.

The medium being used at present to explore these ideas and, if possible, to encourage growth, is the internet.  One researcher, upon ceasing internet radio broadcast underlined the importance of reason and clarity, stating that, “Now anyone with a cheap consumer microphone can upload their own show into the digital ether. This ability is not, as many believe, a new kind of glorious digital liberty as much as it is a destructive anarchy of unchecked and non-vetted information.” – Clint Richardson (https://realitybloger.wordpress.com/2016/01/08/corporation-nation-radio-now-history-his-story/)

Perhaps naively, I withhold complete agreement from this statement.  What if humanity hasn’t spiraled beyond recovery into violence and exploitation, what if this digital freedom to distribute information can contribute greatly to a more informed and healthy society?  To serve others to this end seems to be the most intuitive solution and some have began implementing it (Jan Irvin, Clint Richardson, Elliot Hulse, Dave Asprey).  If one can truly empower others in practical means then it would seem quite possible to sustain an existence in the recipricol positive feedback (people spending their money or other resources to further the tools that empower them).  Conveniently, my interests reside in exploring ideas I consider most empowering, so regardless of humanity’s viability in terms of maturing out of perpetual violence and misinformation, I am left with no greater interest than developing my personal curriculum… to cultivate more love and reason in my own life.

Hypothetically, the requirements for an individual to get the most out of life are the same requirements for individuals to synergize, minimize conflict, and maximize enjoyment (this is an area of agreement I share with the polyvagal theory, which indicates that social bonding is primary to the feeling of safety and the nervous system switching to healing and volitional focus rather than automatic stimulus response for orienting and responding to situations and individuals perceived as threats).  The two requirements I view as the basis for this are Reason and Love.  As a foundation we will look at the central nervous system and reason.  Eventually, this will wind its way into the quadrivium, physics, non-duality, and debunking all sorts of propiganda, perpetuated by the ultra rich and the ultra poor.

 

Why Reason

While existence may be, in some ways, innately meaningless, there is always the fact that we ourselves attribute meanings and create value systems, generally along the lines of surviving and being free to engage in connection, recreation and creation.  With the emergence of value systems, along with the volitional and fallible characteristics of human minds comes the value of acquiring accurate information to ensure right decisions (those that serve us well) are made.

To understand reason, it is intuitive to begin by grasping exactly what it is, namely it is the method by which the linear mind comes to know anything.  Therefore, what is really being communicated here is the answer to the question: how do we really know anything?  The process humans have called reason begins in each human long before any formal study of the topic can possibly occur, it is only later that through studying the topic one might refine their faculties beyond their initial competencies (like a musician formally studying musical scales, chords, and composition to refine their ability to compose pleasing sounds).

Abduction (hypothesis formation) is first triggered by any event that is considered anomalous (not explained by the linear mind’s current understanding).  Abduction, generating and choosing hypotheses, will be further explored in the Quadrivium section.  For present focus, it is the initial acquisitions of knowledge that interest us and these are gained through a process known as induction.  Induction is presented first because before any knowledge to exist, it must overcome what has been termed, the Problem of Induction:

  1. “Generalizing about the properties of a class of objects based on some number of observations of particular instances of that class (for example, the inference that “all swans we have seen are white, and, therefore, all swans are white”, before the discovery of black swans) or
  2. Presupposing that a sequence of events in the future will occur as it always has in the past (for example, that the laws of physics will hold as they have always been observed to hold). Hume called this the principle of uniformity of nature.[2]”

Overcoming this “problem” allows one to validate any information they hold their hold their focus on, including previous conclusions and newly presented information.

“Groarke’s reconciliation (chapter 3, “A ‘Deductive’ Account of Induction”) is a recognition that the propositional inference of Prior Analytics B 23 depends for its validity on the concept-formation of Posterior Analytics B 19. Aristotle’s inference is this: All observed Cs are B; all observed Cs are A; all A is the observed Cs (by conversion of the minor premise); therefore all As are B. An inductive inference has been rendered as a syllogism. But what justifies that conversion of the minor premise?”

Is this a formal deductive fallacy?

“But, Groarke notes, there is another way to justify a conversion. He cites Paolo Biondi:

An induction can be held to have gone through all particular instances, not because it has actually enumerated every single particular instance … but because it has done so potentially by having acquired the cognition of the universal essence of the particulars being enumerated (119 in Groarke).”

Note: I think this is getting close to the actual answer explained by David Harriman in the Logical Leap, but referring to the essence seems potentially vague and as mystically loaded language.

Why Love

Measuring heart rate variability may be key to truth detection and intuition. Bill Joslin has some very interesting and relevant thoughts to such things that come close to meditation:

“Talking with the wife briefly after she passed a mindful meditation poster.

I told her about how direct concentration – methods of meditation like mindfulness prune gray matter from the amygdala. This helps in reducing anxiety and fear responses, keep a cool head – but also increases aggravation and irritation responses – and reduces capacity for empathy. Essentially you shift closer to being a psychopath (said jokingly)

Then I said generative meditations like compassion meditation increases (blooms) the amygdala. This increases emotional impulsivity, reduces rational responses and increase a person’s capacity for empathy. But essentially makes you an emotional flaky narcissist.

She said – well I guess in either case it’s better than walking around a ball of tension, stressed out etc. So there are trade-offs.

So then I went into how we form knowledge (a complex network of associations) and how meditation works in the opposite process to knowledge acquisition.

Then I mansplained a bit about the hypothalamus – how when we see an object or remember an object, or visualize an object – the processes in the hypothalamus remains identical. Generative meditation stimulates the hypothalamus to supersede sensory input and concentration meditations suppress it.

From this, we came to the conclusion that practices based on stoicism would be ideal (absorbed in useful activity). Trains attention (like concentration meditations), while occupied in real sensory data (trains hypothalamus)- or pragmatic outputs (generative as it is interactive to inputs)- or contemplation (working with the process of knowledge acquisition).

Anyway – an interesting conversation”
