At what point did “Nature” (or some ancient genetic engineer) decide to genetically map the mathematical “fractallian” precision onto the body of such a beautiful specimen as the Zebra? Did it just manifest through evolution, or is there something more extraordinary to the puzzle? Some believe there must be a gestalt secret entwined within the matrix of biological information and processing of programmable DNA that is evident in the symbol of the stripes. Could it be a created messenger from an ancient geneticist’s cause for aesthetic communication across the ages? To think of the complexity involved in such a theory, boggles the mind and upsets more than the old bromide of which came first…the “white horse” or the dark stripes. Something strange and different goes on when one delves deeply beyond the implied common science.
Could the knowledge of non-linear dynamics known by an ancient sentient civilizations such as the old Egyptians have genetically manufactured animals, including Zebras, if it had in its possession the basics of Fractal Geometry…could we? In the near future, research will produce a gargantuan amount of geologic and genetic data on the environment and the Animal Kingdom Genome. Couple this new information with the other leading-edge fields of Holography, Nanotechnology, Super Computers, Virtual Reality, Microbiology, and many more, then use the mathematical loom of Fractals to weave theory into reality, and we may find ourselves face-to-face with a checkered Zebra.
Fractua” is Latin for irregular, so Benoit Mandelbrot (an IBM Fellow) coined the name “fractals” (1980) for his new self-similar geometry, which can emulate the visual dictates of the world of chaos and the dimensional reality of natural forms. Fractal Geometry can define reality in a numerical fashion as it exists in the micro and macro realms…thus digitally mapping all being, via quantum manipulation and on-going change factors which are broadcast within the electromagnetic spectrum and throughout eternity.
The fact that some students of knowledge seem to miss when entranced by the symbol of the Mandelbrot Set’s “island molecule,” is that it looks exactly like a silhouetted, sitting Buddha. To accidentally stumble upon such synchronism between a mathematical equation for reality and a philosophical icon for life (Buddha) is indeed awesome for those who seek the arcane wisdom of the gods. If the two were truly related, perhaps more investigation would bridge the gaps between ancient religion and modern science. Are the two, one? Both are really looking for the same understanding of truthful existence in this Universe. However, the point remains…there are no schools of thought higher than Truth…though its secret is ever fleeting.
Issac Asimov reinforced the above by stating philosophically that the secret/s of the Universe are enfolded in fractals and that the enigma of this constancy will remain forever unknown — an enigma. Other scientists think otherwise and are in a heated race to frame a fractal-future in a new and fascinating understanding that could finally addresses the concepts of infinite creation through a quantum/holographic/fractal marriage.
Most of Nature still remains hidden from the vision of truth. We must in the coming decades stare into the depths of “what-if-thought” and realize life’s deeper understandings and the clues to our deepest past. Causes and issues such as the Earth’s rain forests being consumed at exponential rates, spurs some of us to fight such economic greed knowing that the plants that grow there are sources of extracts that are far more precious to us as cures for disease rather than being “slashed” lands for coffee or other crops. Their worth is still enfolded within the grasp of Natures packaging waiting for intellectual release. Many think our ancient ancestors encompassed their knowledge in their genetic gifts passed forward.
While predestined cycles approach a point of serendipity, and a plethora of causal ingredients point to a paradigm of why man exists on this earth, some men still see with the veil of illusion crystallized between their retinas and the mind’s eye of intuitional knowledge…the sixth sense. Consciousness resides at levels prefixed at the “un,” the “sub,” and shoots to a high of super-consciousness. Now, psycho-cognitive and other scientific research reinforces old myths into truths that higher understanding only amplifies as mankind sheds its “selfdom” for altruistic beliefs, thereby ushering in a realm of higher consciousness.
How deeply does mankind truly see? Can we match mind to wisdom and perceive that there are greater scientific unknowns (than the Zebra’s stripes) just floating around us waiting to be discovered? Or, does the cause of the “ENIGMNI” (the absolute ultimate unknowable) exert its power over mankind’s quest to push forever the envelope of reality beyond our own comprehension? Perhaps the evolution of alternative means of thought enabling us to see and understand the makings of the Universe will require exploration of creative pathways that go around old empiric paradigms…systems of doing science that have become the tacit infrastructure (a way of expressing unspeakable, yet concrete concepts of life). Have we become victims of our own complex ignorance and are now unable to participate in the “brainstorm” required for tomorrow’s world? Philosophy and Science must again merge in the search for truth…through a rededication to creativity…the ongoing act.
As to the secret of the Zebra — could mankind have missed the “point” of the ancient Unicorn in that its symbolic message to us was not the one-horned horse, but the one with the gift of Fractal Geometry on its coat to “point” (guide) our way from the beginnings of our time to the grand leaps required of our complex future. Orientation for a new viewpoint may be dawning. Considering where we are in human development… it is something to think about and apply to all the so-called gifts we find manifest about us in the caldron of Existence. If we accept the Secret of the Zebra, then we are only just awakening to the fact that there were highly advanced minds creating here on this Earth long ago and they were doing the preliminary work on the Primary Technology that we enjoy as Nature.
Since obsequious conditioning requires of participants a mutualism of flattery and sensitivity to favorite causes, collusion runs rampant in our public schools. Cute people position themselves as ultra-unique, and in their mutually fantasizing minds they are. Adulation from others is needed to stoke their egos; consequently, you will find most high school and university students are involved in social intercourse and the fruits thereof, rather than learning truths.
Most kids will do just about anything to be accepted by their peer groups or others. To become knowledgeable is only cursory to their agendas. Some students find happiness in the sports, band or dance teams — they serve as forums for their campaigns of cuteness or social worthiness. It seems everyone wants to identify with the elitist-cute or those positioned by word of mouth or the media as being “in” (like the pandered stars of Hollywood).
Once a student gets a reputation for being cute, he/she could be in for a perpetuation of the process that only gets more acute as they go along. Cuteness can lead to any high position if you have the backing of others for whom the “image” means “cute-bucks” and social status. Politics is a great attraction for persons made of the above formula (some are stars but not statesmen). Popularity and the psyche of an extrovert are next to being independently wealthy. Of course this is always accomplished at the expense of those not so cute. “Haves” are cute, but “have-nots” are usually anathema.
For decades, America and the World has been engulfed by the psychology of cute which sells the painted or feigned smile as its mark of the ultimate sophisticate. It is in truth a grimace. In animals a grimace is an expression of concession…like a dog lying on its back. In humanity it is usually a fake concession designed to reap more attention or assist in leveraging. If we humans constantly position, in order to make our lives easier, through illusory methods, we are conceding for unjustified gain. We are playing games falsely.
Many of our teachers, students and the public in general, have spent a lifetime learning how to hype the world through “cute” insincere methods, rather than face up to our responsibilities through knowledge and wisdom. If we take away all the false-play techniques of a cute personality, what remains of the individual…Illusions(?) — which are nothing.
Those who collude among their kind are wrapped up in their cuteness and seek to spread their selfishness out of guilt. Those of this society love corroboration of their actions and will marshal every forum of reinforcement to see that their kind survive. Misery loves company. What they are really looking for is love, and cuteness, they think, once meant that. Contrasted against the selfless, if they can be found in today’s world, the selfish takes on the mask of the destroyer. Their baggage is almost unbearable. For the seeker of Truth, life takes on a placid state, unaffected by attempts at selfish leveraging.
Subconsciously the truth is always present for the seeker of Truth. He is involved in the power of knowing the “Other” which usually amounts to finding love. The seeker knows that the inner being must be awakened and that involves putting away the noise of the illusion. Looking past the self and bringing the empowerment of LOVE to our future generations just might re-establish how learning should be structured…in truth. Our humanity will never survive otherwise.
In his book, The Seat of the Soul, Gary Zukav saw how humanity nullifies its potential positive power by playing upon the dynamics of the split between love and fear. He states as follows:
“The human emotional system can be broken down into roughly two elements: fear and love. Love is of the soul. Fear is of the personality. The illusion of each personality is generated by and sustained by the emotions that follow fear, such as anger, rage, vengefulness, hatred, jealousy or envy, loneliness spite, sorrow, despair, grief, regret, greed, lust, arrogance, alienation, self-pity, lethargy, guilt, resentment, and feelings of inferiority and superiority. Emotions such as these lead to corresponding behaviors, such as selfishness — toward people and animals and the Earth and the kingdoms of the Earth–and using others in the many ways that humans use one another… commercial, sexually, emotionally…and lying, manipulation, violence, brutality, impatience, ridicule, and judgment.”
Zukav, also wrote The Dancing Wu Li Masters, a book that has made many seekers of knowledge start the pathway to a higher playing field of awareness. Why is the philosophy and tradition of the above not a part of our public educational offering. All knowledge should be in the offing for the sake of an advanced civilization…religion included. We should have the freedom to teach, especially the above because it is indeed what brought us to this point in history.
Freud verses Jung brings us to a study of positive and negative results of being. Is selfishness positive or negative?
Narcissistic theorist and their findings are usually targeted to your “rights” and your feelings about existence within our national experience of liberty. Notice the word “your.” Most of the psychology used to back up the politically correct (P C) strategy utilized most by the liberally-oriented factions of our democracy are based on “Freudian” Psychology. (Sigmund Freud, 1856-1939, was the founder of Psychoanalytic movement). Freud’s influence via his theories of neuroses and leveraging via sexuality (normal and abnormal) gradually gained favor among the politically minded and intellectual elite because of its power to mentally manipulate and interface with the human psyche. His works, such as Civilization and its Discontents, (1930) had immense impact on the modern strategy of social engineering via politically correct propaganda.
Freud’s audacity of leveraging sex into the open gave extroverts just the tools they needed for their social reinforcement. Now his socially accepted theory seems to reinforce the self-aspects rather than living with society through Love (though they have attempted to destroy the meaning of that word too).
Freud’s theories break down the linkage between the “me”(self) and the “object” (other – all of life outside, the “me”) perception of being. With today’s emphasis on me-ism, self-esteem, self-realization self-actualization and the emotional/feeling paradigm that is currently a topic of conversation, our nation faces the prospects of total division through narcissistic elitism. Now lawyers are aligning with the psychoanalytic movement and making new laws as they collude their way into higher and higher government positions.
With every person out for themselves, what hope is there for a nation of people to face financial hardship and emotional challenge by accepting responsibility for their government, themselves and their families? Without social character and morals, a nation dies. In view of the programming we are getting on the propaganda machine (the national media elite), is it any wonder why gangs, crime, drugs, graft, divorce, child abuse, and on and on…is it any wonder, why our national character needs a new point-of-view?
Danah Zohar, in her book The Quantum Self, reflects on the power of narcissism as built upon by Freudian Psychology and how it can destroy human psyche if inculcated into a reason for behavior. This foray into liberal thinking (victimization) seems to sidetrack a being’s positive pathway toward human development. She suggests that the liberalism which saw its amplification in the 1960s was and is a result of the Freudian instruction and theory of being, found so prevalent at most major universities then and now.
Zohar states that: “The consequent selfishness, shallowness, alienation, and downright unhappiness of all these cosseted individuals (1960s self-awareness movement) are familiar concerns to many of us in our daily lines. The sad irony here is that in a culture that lays so much stress on the individual, his own sense of personal worth and power is so diminished. As many psychologists have noted, narcissism is more about self-hatred than self-love, and is commonly associated with feelings of emptiness, worthlessness, personal disintegration, and pent-up rage. These symptoms are the source of a great deal of social tension and personal pain, and have generated a whole popular literature that includes books like Lasch’s THE CULTUURE OF NARCISSISM and Allan Bloom’s old classic, THE CLOSING OF THE AMERICAN MIND. Both describe in graphic detail the side effects of too much emphasis on what I would call the particle (as opposed to wave – physics) side of our being.”
Zohar’s words then take us into a direction that humanity could have embraced rather than the Freudian way, with the theories of Freud’s colleague, Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961). The great Swiss psychiatrist’s works seem to not only comprehend Freud’s theories but also go beyond and then back to the ancient traditions as well. Jung’s works in analytic psychology included the total being and his/her relationship to the universe. His studies of consciousness and spirituality reminds me of the work of the ancient Bodhisattva (he, who has attained the All), the Gautama Buddha. In the same vein, his work also parallels the fresh new ideas of today’s modern physicists. Jung even predicted that nuclear physics and consciousness would someday merge in a kind of transcendental discipline not unlike Danah Zohar’s more recent theories of the quantum self. Jung, and later Zohar, saw the relationships between psyche and its influence on matter–“for how otherwise could it (mind) move (leverage) matter?”
Is Quantum Psychology – A Coherent Theory of Being? Danah Zohar, F. David Peat, — plus many other awakening scientists of the present reality are perhaps on to discovering the crux of human existence by focusing on the “light” of quantum mechanical processes. Zohar’s model of existence in the human consciousness is that the brain has two interacting systems. Coherency (synchronized jiggling of cell molecules) is accomplished with the Bose-Einstein condensate, which she associates with achieving levels of consciousness via the communication linkage of biophoton activity. The second is a computer-like linkage to the individual neurons of the brain. It is a quantum mechanical model. She believes that this dual system acts as one unit giving us our view on reality without the need of a supernatural realm for science to have to address. Perhaps she is on to at least how we interface with the laws of nature or the consequence of God’s Being.
Peat, a physicist/philosopher, has written extensively on “be-ness” in this reality we call life. In his book, The Philosopher’s Stone, (1991), he plunges as deep as Zohar, Bohm, and others into the development of verbal and mathematical tools that interface with the Laws of Nature. He reinforces the interconnectedness of the universe via mind and matter and like the ancients, retells how the very atoms (pixels?) that constitute manifest existence, communicate via photons (radiation) in a conscious-like flux of movement. He too, sees the power of the eastern philosophies as they play off of western physics. Peat also believes, as does the traditions of the ancients, that chaos is but unperceived order. Perhaps his most interesting observations are stated below. They seem to reinforce the old concept of Karma or the Laws of Consequence for human participants.
Read: Since the mind and body are deeply linked together, such a new wholeness will also spread to the body. Holistic meaning can therefore link people at all levels, from the mental to the physical and between a person and nature. Actions, conversation, decisions, and dreams emerge out of this resonance. And clearly, synchronicity would be one manifestation of this new type of activity.
We can also envision such outflowing of meaning at the cellular level (DNA). Within such a dialogue is also the possibility that molecular transformation can become the appropriate response to an overall change in meaning within the environment.
But disharmonious situations also exist in which the activity of a system is at odds with its surrounding environment. For example, conflict and division experienced by an individual can give rise to a very subtle form of damage to the brain. Just as subtle structures in the brain can respond to the ever-changing field of meaning in which they are embedded, so, too, a person whose levels of meaning are incoherent and confused will develop a brain that becomes increasingly insensitive. When mind and body are no longer in harmony, confused meanings enter the body and cause illness and disease. The result is a muted response to life and even bizarre, destructive and violent behavior.
F. David Peat’s assumptions are corroborated by the ancient traditions, and contemporary research. Humans leverage their lives via deep-seated causation that we must become aware of in order to better understand our reason for being. It appears that all this is wrapped up in a picture that we are just standing too close to, in an attempt to see the whole.
Leveraging and Collusion or Gestalt Love and Topsight — these are all words designed to understand how we exist in positive or negative modality when in a physical state. The cursor of our very being rides the light of our decisions searching for a plus or minus verdict on each and every event sequence that confronts our soulular travel. So, how can we get a grasp of this existence built upon leveraging time and opportunity as it confronts the crest wave of phased space/time? What determines Good and Evil outcomes?
Imagine finding a point of observation that would let you see all that makes mankind and life understandable. Everything that has made us what we are would come into a focused-vision that would detail the total life-spectrum. This view would allow us to finally determine where we need to apply emphasis and utility in order to enhance the quality-of-experience for our own conscious beness.
Some call the above viewpoint “topsight.” Its information to us should be gestalt (total) or all encompassing in character. Part of topsight’s message could be that humanity becomes or progresses through reality as a result of utilizing tools of power and/or creativity. This would get us from one event-sequence (special moment) to another, hopefully without losing status, position, or self-control in the process. Defeat would be possible through acceptance of fear, loneliness, the void, or nonexistence. Defeat would also make us a victim.
Humans use or leverage the tools of power to propel themselves from one or more event/s toward ever more complex event/s, thereby creating conscious movement through time and space. Human leveraging is accomplished through the utilization of a lens-of-sensual-understanding better known as a brain. It provides the input/output ability served by our five sensory connections to the physical world. In the manifest universe, we are what we know and what we communicate to and from the other aspects that complete the feedback-loop made up of the “me” and the “other.” Humans leverage the “other” (everything outside of themselves) through the mental manipulation of illusions and truths and their relationships to power positioning. Humans usually accomplish this through strategy built upon self-gratification (false love), self-empowerment, survival or True Love for others.
Human power-vehicles already referred to earlier, are used as tools to leverage reality or matter in time and space. They are: violence, knowledge, love, friendship, beauty, wealth, social position, immortality (religion), and well being. The application of truth or illusion and selfishness verses lovingness as ingredients, can be built or included with any of the power-concepts to be leveraged by the human entity to produce manipulated results within the arena of event-sequences…life.
For most of us, education has been taught through a liberal arts curriculum centered around reward and punishment methods which reinforce the theories of behavioral modification, positive reinforcement and deference to authority (rather than earned respect). In its early days, this educational process produced satisfactory citizens because of the initial creative start. In time, however, creativity wore down and collusion (self-oriented behavior) began to creep into the process. People sought increasing favors from their leaders and each other to satisfy their needs for increased acceptance and popularity in their social and business lives. It was a power thing. As the participants began to expend as little energy as possible to get the most reward possible, leveraging through misinformation signaled the expansion of selfish/ulterior motives.
Mutualism and permissivism became the habit of collusion as its tentacles began to pervade every power base in life. Increased pandering among certain segments of the population produced waves of support programs designed to reinforce insecure egos. Blind collusion creating polarizations became the method of elitists to usurp power from the naive. Networked collusion began to approach a kind of sick pollution that diffused creativity and true self-esteem because subconsciously, humanity knew it was living a self-manufactured illusion. This misinformational-life soon became the fashion while the liberal media used “peoplespeak” and pop culture to amplify the narcissistic message for power and political profit. Truth has since become hard to recognize because leveraged-illusion has expanded to meet an increasingly complex society or one that is confused by a saturation of complexity.
By propping-up and rewarding “poor-me-ism” through the illusion of kindness (which the transmitter / receiver knows is an illusive lie), this sickness begins to offer up a vision of the ultimate collusion of a self-centered, ergo lonely, populous expressing destructive behavior. Humans today constantly require psychological reinforcement through the “mirroring” of each other for some sign of personal worth. Reinforced by “showy” positioning, via communicative exchanges of collusive activity, the universal lie expands so the participants feel needed. These persons constantly seek visual recognition and eventually become obsessed with posturing for adulation and fawning approval. Some exchange flattering remarks so as to “pump” each other up since they share a lie together.
As illusions grow, consciousness of the real world decreases. (Is this because self-oriented illusive life produces more social and personal consequences via living lies?) People sense a feeling of, “is that all there is?” Individuals caught in this web become easy targets for human leveraging or manipulation through emotional-blackmail or guilt-trips used to modify their (all) behavior. Most humans know when they “have-been-had,” except it is usually the next day or next year. Afterwards, they are either driven to lower esteem or to revenge through the threat or act of violence.
People living the leveraged-illusion has thus far produced most of our social problems including the lack of interest in our public school systems, because these practitioner’s lives are built upon systems of collusive practice. Gangs, terrorists and other undesirables can proliferate in a world full of perpetuating lies. Perhaps the time has come to investigate a more creative approach to living life. Such a change would require of mankind the ability to rise in higher-ordered cognitive processes, which are not yet a part of human education. The introduction of such a collusive-less paradigm could usher in a realm of creative “top-sight” and a life of a little more Love and Truth. But first, we must determine what positive and negative conduct produces Good and Evil in the Leveraging of a Virtual Life.
|We seem to examine our being to become more. As we become more our vehicle erodes but we may soar. As time passes the vehicle no longer can sustain the means of thinking and we slowly pass into the void. Others pick up our thoughts and carry parts of it forward and it goes on and on through the blood. But is this only an illusion? There seems to be a distant thinker in the mix — one that drives our very being from the darkness of our apparent physicality. It is like a massive Godly program that determines exactness and procedure for leveraging the elements of this information packed realm we call living. Its precision is awesome and perfect. It seems to be ALWAYS.
There seems to be a lot of automatic means and methods of moving us through this realm of informational being. The thinking, conscious part of us seems to be in for a ride. We ride the light of this realm where everything is automatically moving into new data that constantly is formulated via past data. There is no going back under the same conditions, only forward where change is taking place with new aspects to ponder with our mind or our thinking part of this experience pointing to potential. Our future depends upon a proper or positive process of determining what aspects to use in the mix of past data for future leveraging of trends and conditions.
The Crux of being seems to depend upon something that maintains some form of constancy so we may maintain the information float in a burgeoning echelon over the chaos potential. If chaos can rise, we are destroyed or move to a higher echelon or level of existence for dimensional experience. It is all information manipulation on our part and that of the system within which we dwell. It is always becoming and we are along for the trek.
The Crux of Being involves a multifaceted, multidimensional means of experiencing existence through consciousness. Each part interacts with its other parts. We are parts of the whole that must be present in order to interact and perceive existence. Otherwise we do not exist. Yet, we are one collective and part/s of us lose our vehicles but our knowledge interweaves with the knowledge of our other parts.
We should love one another as we love ourselves for the other is us all.
In reality, existence is so complex that all the spectral levels of being here in Time/Space combined cannot divulge the means of transfer from one dimension to the next. It is how Mind rides the light. Even Light has amplified parameters of speed and movement to higher and higher levels of being that are created constantly. To contemplate upon existence is almost not worth the investment of energy when one considers that this— this Is, is going on constantly and has always been. Behind it and within it is the Mind that rides the vehicle of Light in this expression we think upon as LIFE.
To some the great “We” that makes up this universe is full of billions and billions of parts all associated with each other in some fashion. To Others, this realm is the expression of One that is multifaceted and multidimensional as it courses in and through a projection into time from Timelessness as threefold — Present, Past and Future as the Father, Son and Holy Ghost.
Is it possible that all the beings of this grand illusion of parts within parts could be in reality only One — the Collective Singularity? As human beings we all exist within this one Time zone at the same time. Could these persons who think they are individuals who are localized in vehicles as a means of motivation in this physical state — could we be one who is all experiences? Just as a hologram made up of a Moiré Matrix of potential through time can contain billions upon billions of potential images — we are still found within a universe of one hologram of data with light selecting the combinations of contemplation/s to be expressed.
Indeed, we cannot think in terms of Always but just perhaps we are all living this experience not as a stone or a stone’s throw away from realization, but are one, massive, gargantuan state of being and becoming issuing from Timelessness as Always. To this One, at the top of this expression of Life all those little minds below are like the cells of our body, doing just about what we were programmed to do…over and over and over and over and…Which leads us to this:
The Crux of Being…
Therefore, this “crux of existence” is the reevaluation of how we learn, feel, think and grow within the arena of mind(s) in motion on a plane of existence that at times seems like a dream… but is much more for the seeker of knowledge and the truth of reality. It is that inexplicable condition of constant learning that leads us through what we discern as…being alive. The Crux of Being is pointed at the human process of “becoming” whatever we are capable of attaining. This work is dedicated to the amplification of all our known sensory abilities and the more mysterious, intuitional realms that continue to be unused by most of us and furthermore is untaught to the present generation drifting in rampant retrograde.
The crux of being is a verbal extension of localized consciousness that pushes into the continuum of a larger reality – one we must be prepared to somatically experience, mentally grasp, spiritually embrace and then…seriously and universally join. We must do this because we can through the coalescence of the collective mentality — Love coherency.
The potential of Virtual Simulation learning is dawning.
Introducing CyberArts to Public Education…
“The graphic power of computers is growing exponentially. Nano-Polygons will eventually emulate the real world…Mirror Instancy.”
In the early 1990s, somewhere in Pasadena California, there were international conferences held on a budding concept called CYBERART. It was the place where America’s leading communication scientists, entertainment professionals and media-artists gathered for exploring and exchanging ideas, techniques, and knowledge about cutting-edge technologies, and creativity. These meetings and others like them spelled the future of an idea called Edutainment or the combination of creative learning and entertainment through CyberArts. It represented total amplification to the human mind.
For any educator to make the trek to the Pasadena Conference Center in those days to truly see the future in the making, it would have been an act of unbelievable courage and farsightedness. To hear Stewart Brand speak the words that will send us beyond MEDIA LAB (MIT) would have been too much for school board members to grasp. It would be like experiencing THE WHOLE EARTH CATALOG via virtual reality, only this time knowledge and wisdom would have quadrupled into an unknown language. A language our future must understand if we are to survive in a turbocharged world built on the FLY.
The simple truth is, we can’t wait much longer in installing cyber-art learning into a communications curriculums. Though our school leaders fear creativity because any unknown is always met with trembling and suspicion, action is the demand of our kids and the burgeoning marketplace. If CyberArt were introduced into our school systems through an act of increased automation and subsequent curriculum expansion to accommodate such technology — what would the result be?
Schools and their organizations would change radically. Students would find outlets for their creativity — their wanderlust would once more blaze in intellectual passion toward seeking the unknown. Learning would be locked in a quest for knowledge and wisdom — and the kids could be doing it on their own with teachers facilitating. That is why your kids are behind the curve of international knowing — schools cannot compete with the power of today’s business and entertainment communications know-how. (Just think what Spielberg’s DreamWorks Interactive will do for your grandchildren’s intellect). The school districts do not have adequate programs or plans, such as a communications curriculum; to interface with the technology purchases that are taking place haphazardly at most schools. They can run with technology but they can’t hide from the fact that there is no clear VISION and no understanding of the potential to humanity if we embark upon this tiger of virtual learning.
Bringing CyberArts to Education
Learning: Granting a Deeper Context to Public Education – The Gestalt Paradigm
“In order to learn, informational data must be presented to a sensually endowed entity for stimulation of a preexisting receiver. One must fire up his afterburners. Interest should then be established that provides the perceptive system a contrast against background and foreground information stored in its instinctual memory to amplify visual and intellectual acuity. This contrast will cause the focusing of resources upon the interesting data. If the data is sufficiently intriguing to the receptors of information and linkage between existing onboard information occurs, then a matrix of analysis can begin to be established where new informational elements can be extrapolated. If there is enough data to establish creative memory-mapping or the development of “what-if” conceptualization parameter, then the entity can establish an imagination-beachhead and begin to build a new inner universe which leads to understanding the outer universe.”
Constant stimulation during wakeful periods, allows the entity to grow mentally in an exponential holo-gestalt fashion. This process must be reinforced both internally and externally during a timely period, from an infinite number of sources. Each source can map upon the holographic memory-matrix in an increasingly complex fashion and in a variety of content/context related configurations. If data does not become too repetitive, the entity may retain a kind of verve for attaining and manufacturing new data. However, if data is presented in a format that is increasingly less-exciting than previous learning experiences, the information-float that produced a sort of learning frenzy, begins to deflate and the entity becomes playful, preoccupied or agitated thus signaling that it needs stimulation or it will suffer a learning shutdown. Boredom is born — and if the entity perceives it the duty of outside sources to provide it constant adulation, then it pouts and becomes an addicted victim of society’s makeup. Selfishness and blame become part of its being in that constant attention from outside sources is expected to keep it on a learning high. If this happens another diseased mind of High Maintenance Syndrome is ushered into our realm of distortion.
To go beyond this basic process of learning, a human must not hang-up on the pains of self-love to the extent that higher ordered processes are not possible. “Deep knowledge comes to the animated mind.” The animated one that is stimulated by ever increasing complexity of a holistic variety built upon the understanding of the Otherworld outside of the self expands. Empowerment of the human is gained when it becomes aware that all outside information from the Otherworld makes the being what he/she is about. We are what we learn. For us to become more we must learn more — learning more creates the challenge followed by a thirsty response and a new challenge. Mental growth then becomes fractally-geometric or holo-gestalt (universal holographic-like mind processes building one through the many; Scientific American 2003).
During childhood, we are initially on a pathway that will take us to higher ordered knowledge because we are learning our way at our own pace. We are becoming worthy. All things relate. Then little by little our primary-input-parent could begin to tear us away from the natural course of learning and put us on a linear pathway toward systematic, step-by-step processes of input decipherment. Because of our first four years of wrong-oriented indoctrination by a selfishly inclined adult, we could follow in their footsteps and become just like them. Today, our schools continue this linear process after some of our parents initially prepare us for the world of mediocrity.
Humans come into this world from the holo-movement of a generative order that science is only now beginning to see but not yet understand. Its foundations originate from a universe of cognitive processes that know intuitively and are reflected (manifested) into our being. As we begin to perceive the miniscule level from where we issue forth, we become more amazed at the immensity of understanding the mystery from which we are crystallized into being. This world of the unknown dwells within and outside of the dreamscape of our own imagination for our own creative needs. Exploration of this point-of-departure for creative expression is a portion that has been, for the most part, withheld from our learning patterns during public education. In our past, great philosophers and artisans came from the dreamscape where an understanding of responsibility to the Otherworld produced selfless humans. Love was at the core of reinforcement for existence.
Learning of our existence has been replaced with the evolutional (school of:) misunderstanding that has no capacity for love, or for a universe that is alive. We are given a linear system that values our contributions as insignificant. If man is a mere ape, then life is a mere accident according to the evolutionist’s criteria. Higher ordered knowledge gained on a deeper more gestalt level shows this is not true by itself. There is much more to this powerful existence. If our children were to learn of selfless love and holistic perception, our society would reflect the morality we need to make the jump to a more advanced civilization. We must begin a deeper investigation of the philosophies of the past intertwined with the discoveries on the frontiers of Science (Physics).
More precisely, we must learn from our own invention…high technology. At present, we are looking at a dawning singularity of technology being built by the industry of human imagination. CyberArts concepts are rising in the business world that will give us an opportunity to create a Mirror World (instancy) where we can simulate existence. Here in this Mirror World, we can slow down the learning experience and practice each and every human endeavor over and over at our own pace. The OmniGrid is coming to give us this great tool. This network will be beyond the Internet and the next generation Internet. The OmniGrid will give us a new wave of learning that each individual will be able to amplify upon.
The implications of a “constancy such as the GRID,” in the realm of information communications is far reaching and awe inspiring, when one contemplates the reality of current technological advances contrasted against the future’s anticipated speed and need factors. Our world will soon be “ultra-linked” to such a vast degree that the creation of information (products and services) will be almost instantaneous on every level and happen on a constant basis. Nations are already linked to nations on many interconnecting levels…governments to governments, businesses to businesses, people to people and, someday in the far future…a universe to a super-universe – what some call Mirror Worlds.
Through the amplification of information, humankind finally has the opportunity to dissolve the lines of nationality, racism, misinformation, propaganda, and misunderstanding. We can become a world community. Because of this expanded networking of info, all intelligence on Earth could soon know when one segment is LEVERAGING (processes of power and control) at the other’s expense. Perhaps mans next great step will be to come to grips with those who overstep the bounds of lusting for empires and conquest. A deeper knowing is spreading across all dimensions, and its geometric growth affects the developmental nuances of everything and everybody. The world is now fully engulfed in the “proto-info-politics” of the human intellectual utility (our knowledge reservoir). What will this saturation of necessary communicative “noise” bring to us?
Rapid informational constancy is the catalyst to unbridled change. Nations that are not onboard the turbo-technological trends that are electrifying the hearts of industry and the minds of businesspersons may find themselves close to catastrophe through revolt. When the people of other nations observe the quality-of-life experiences for the materially and information rich populations, the desire to move quickly toward the enriched lifestyles will become overpowering. A world amplified through access to potency is indeed a very volatile place to be if one important aspect is ignored…equality. Equality of access to perceived power must be maintained in balance no matter what the complexity. Unless equality is kept, dislocation and rebellion will polarize and explode to tear down a civilization.
Earth will soon begin approaching the 6.8 billion-population mark set to exist in the first decade of 2000 -2011. What will the impact of the variables of socioeconomics, technology, overpopulation and other issues be on our children and grandchildren? The mixture and results will be more than chicken soup. It will be turbulence personified unless we seek to prepare our collective minds for the challenge. A super-charged educational experience is the only answer to survival in tomorrow’s agglomeration. Without an exacting, constantly improving system-of-learning, (a system that takes into consideration the second by second change factors affecting our lives) the polarization of society will certainly occur. Constantly updated Informational-education will be the common bond that allows a hyper-civilization to flow uninterrupted toward higher-ordered levels.
Presently, the institution of education seems to be the most important segment of American and Western society that is not dynamically in sync with the projected future of our expanding civilization. Educational identity is rapidly being pulled and mashed out of shape…driven from any real-world relevance and cohesion by a political and administrative preoccupation with outdated methods and antique systems. They (educators and their patrons) pile old “taxing” solutions on overburdened structures. Because the business sector is looking for an edge over foreign economic creativity, the incongruity of the above must be aliened through innovation and vision. Unless our system of teaching and learning changes drastically, It is possible that education will at some point be rendered totally useless or obsolete by the forces of rampaging change perpetrated by breakthroughs or sudden chaos that is punctuated by overnight developments not yet perceived.
In order to survive, educators must quickly react to the trends and conditions of the info-structure (condition of info to life) that is currently wrapping its tentacles about the ancient linearity that permeates the educational system’s “old bones,” and install a new animated hyper-communications curriculum built on leading-edge/real-time concepts of creativity and technological power. A relevant system of learning will be the only hope for those who believe in equal access and democracy…anything else will continue to breed elitism. Our public schools should change and add supercharged interactive communications media or CyberArts Courseware to amplify and expedite curriculum. This info-media and its technological potential will become the common thread that knits our world together in its constancy. Now it is time to kick in the afterburners
As their mentor, I have fought hard to bring their world into focus, so that they may use the newest building blocks, the technology of “their” world, to lab-test the issues that just sit unrecognizable to some of my colleagues who are ensconced at the threshold of the ultimate educational resources.
Interior Secrets of Existence
A Virtually Holographic Universe
THE HUMAN LEVERAGING PARADIGM
Leveraging: The act of striving for power and control in every human process of living.
Paradigm: An example or model used as a system or process for existence or technological development.
Deep within the psyche of all humans lives a desire and a drive for recognition of one’s existence and prowess. In order to fulfill this basic instinct within mankind, one finds the first step is always to “position” for recognition. That step is the act of leveraging all physical aspects for power and control in every event-sequence that we participate with in life. The first phase is one of moving thought that manifests into an act designed for power over the Other. The Me (you) views all outside or external entities or material objects as the Other. Put simply — there is Me (you) and there is the Other. To the Me, all outside persons, things, whatever — are the Other. The Me competes with the Other for power and control within the realm of Lawful-existence or what some call the Essence (Laws of Physics or Nature).
The Essence is also considered the Universe. It is where the Me and the Other reside in a quantum existence full of laws and forces that leverage us by its own making. Some call this realm God. No matter how you term this inexplicable being or state of existence, you are here taking part in a drama that no one person can explain. You, the Me, really do not know if the Other really exists, but if it does not exist, do you exist? Without the Other, would you have the data to communicate back to you in feedback, that you exist?
The Void is the Ultimate unknowable it may be non-existence. You will never know the meaning of the Void as the Me. The self-oriented being or person can not know the Void, for it is deep, dark and undetectable. Selfish persons who desire recognition are really looking for reinforcement that they exist. Selfishness causes non-learning and pushes us closer to the edge of the Void. Without attention form the Other, we have no worldly data to feedback on the reality of our existence. The only way we can ever learn our way in the universe is to become unselfish and reach out to the Other to learn from all of them. To join the Other is to become unselfish. This is what some call Love. To Love the Other as we Love the Me is to gain knowledge on the Essence and the Void. The more we share knowledge with the Other, the more we see of life. An unselfish person soon learns that he is the Other.
Leveraging for Power in life means that the Me will use Violence, Wealth, Religion, Knowledge, Beauty, or Love to gain control over the Other, or seek recognition from the Other. There is really only one selfless means of communicating with the Other. It is Love. All other means are elements that invoke the ancient law of consequence. The law of consequence is also known as the law of cause and effect…what goes around, comes around. Because the law of consequence is leveraged into existence by selfish acts by the Me for his/her own gain (in effect saying that the Other does not exist therefore negating the Me’s own existence).
Look into the eye of the Other and you will see the mirror of the self. No person exists beyond the data of his/her own senses. Without the feedback of the other’s activities, there would be no data to see, hear, taste, smell, touch or examine with the brain or the sixth sense. The seventh sense is intuition which few beings develop unless they are unselfish and understand the power of the law of consequences. In your mind dances all the data of the Other. Without the knowledge gained of the outside world, you would be nothing. You are what you learn. You are an accumulation of all your life experiences. Your are the Other replicated by leveraged experiences reinforced over and over again. Wisdom is gained when you learn to Love the Other and Life becomes a Passion for harmony and continued becoming.
Our society then, seems to be poised within the tacit-dynamic of living and being, towards a civilization based upon achieving improved wisdom and mental amplification for the masses. (Society is such a mess of lies — reversing the trend seems to be the only althernative.) This “wishful thinking” described as a trend, requires that the education of what some call a “Super-Generalist,” becomes an educational norm. This super-person of encyclopedic scope, would require an education far and above anything we currently offer and would constitute a mindset far-and-away from those who currently collude for self-enhancement (illusionists).
Many researchers suggest that America’s educational establishment must address old collusions and illusions by ridding our society of the disease called the “Naivete Syndrome”. This malady is the sufferance of allowing hype, policy, propaganda, and the positioning of assumptions towards the influence of undeveloped perceptions of persons who are educationally disadvantaged or have been duped by misinformation. This naivete-syndrome is of course the total problem of why man has found himself locked in mediocrity since the beginning of recorded time. Cultural-polarization utilizing the naivete-syndrome has long been a leveraging tool of the elite (opinion leaders) to manipulate the naive (read uneducated) and its usage must now become known to the general public through our public educational curriculums.
Our society is plagued by this lack of perception, thus it is shielded from the truth by incomplete educational communications in the total…if, indeed, some kind of total-education is what we, the great masses, deserve. A small litmus test for determining the directions of our society toward more realistic (truthful) directions, can be suggested by comparing perceptive qualities of individuals and groups within a quantitative list of four visions or means of viewing life. The four visions comprise what I call “Perception Dynamics”…how we see the world around us. Perception Dynamics is/are an adaptation of a system originally set up by Dr. Reid Hastie (University of Minnesota) and Christian Schmidt (Designer). Their ideas became my adaptation and research after I read one of their books. Though its title escapes me, the memory of their contribution to Perception Dynamics remains strong and logical. Their stimulus represents a part of my presentation to my design students when I taught Art at Angelo State University in San Angelo, Texas, back in the seventies. They are, (with my changes):
VIRTUAL VISIONARIES – Persons who have a general
day-to-day view of life, a work-
Perception level of the general population. A
highly naive ego-grouping. 80 to 85% of the
ECCENTRIC VISIONARIES – An expanded analysis of life’s details within a specific category…single mindfulness. These curious
people have difficulty relating their knowledge to the whole. This is the perception level of specialists, lower or mid-management, and
some scientists and educators. 9-12%.
INVENTIVE VISIONARIES – A view that
allows manipulation of imaginative/creative
concepts toward a new or different realty.
Perception level of artists, designers, writers,
entrepreneurs and others. 2-5%.
OMNI-VISIONARIES – A long-range view, universal (panoramic) or a gestalt viewof humanity; penetrating and animated
insight into the “Great Why” or reason. The
domain of the “Brain Trust”, seeker of truth.
Perception level of philosophers, super-
generalists, spiritualists, scientists,
educators…masters such as Plato, Hermes
and others. Seekers of the continuum. 0.5 to 1% of the population.
Of course, many of us exhibit a mixture of the above qualities; nevertheless, because of the great changes and pressures ahead of our society, we as educators must develop methods of helping to expand on thoughtful, relevant and perceptive exchange that addresses the spectrum of human consciousness…total communications via dialogue techniques.
As a former teacher in America’s public educational system, I saw students every day that exhibit the characteristics of all four of the categories of Perception Dynamics. Of course there were very few that show the visual strengths of an Omni Visionary, but there have been at least three out of perhaps 200 that showed the dedication necessary to be initiated into the realm of bonafide seekers. Because my classes are based upon high perceptive cognition and creativity, I did have the lion’s share of Inventive Visionaries, which makes teaching a little less a task and more of a joy. The big problem, indeed the international problem, is the moving up of the other 90%. That is what this work is all about…our becoming.
Because my courses are about the Information-Float and the cybersphere; I utilize perception dynamics as part of my overall course offering on human psychology in the existence paradigm. I call the sessions, The Human Leveraging Paradigm. Actually this book is really about the HLP and future chapters will continue to point up the “why” of our need to understand and establish dialogue that will reveal the crux of being to our evolving psyche. More to Come.
Learning begins at birth with the initial entry into Time/Space. The entity begins to Leverage the elementals understood to be read by the mind. How to exist in this realm is a “must” to be determined through thought. This becomes the first Leverage to step forth into what we discern as reality of being and becoming, Life. How we go from this point of departure into the rest of our life is determined by the degree of how much we learn to Leverage for an edge or gain from each and every sequence hereafter. Learning is perhaps the only reason we are here in this physicality. It is highly important that we gather as much knowledge and wisdom as we can throughout our experience of being here.
We are all members of this gargantuan School of Life. We have a primary need to make sure that we all learn as much as possible to contribute to the welfare of the communities that we find ourselves members thereof. Therefore we have education and schools to pass on the flame of learning. The primary purpose of this blog is to find new ways to amplify the learning process. The trends and conditions of our species are rapidly changing and in order to keep up, we must do more for our future depends upon a robust and expanding learning system for our children and even ourselves. Deeper methodology is required in an age where Robotics are causing humans to know just how long we have been slothfully waddling through life. It is time to kick in the afterburners to learning on our own and doing it better and faster. So let’s get started and BRAINSTORM. How can we become Smarter! See: Your ideas?
