Existence

Post by Dæmon on Sat Aug 13 2016, 18:00

[1] Existence: The state of constant (inter/re)activity – Flux


[1.1] That which is (inter)active exists; that which is said to exist must be, by definition, (inter)active


[1.2] Both concepts (exists/acts) refer to the same state but are given different labels so as to make them functional within different contexts


[1.1.1] The concept of activity can also be expressed using many other terms, besides existent; terms such as: dynamic, movement, vibrant, energy, process, tone, fluctuation etc. but it can also be described as (re)active, (inter)active, creative, thinking, consciousness etc. ~ Becoming


[1.1.1.1] All these terms denote a process with no static states.


[1.1.1.2] Symbols (words) refer to noetic abstractions, using static (simplified/generalized) codes to represent the dynamic, fluctuating (inter)active


[1.1.1.2.1] Contradiction between noumenon (method of interpreting), and phenomenon (world of interactivity), is dealt with by using insinuation


[1.1.1.2.1.1] Insinuation is art ~ artistry


[1.1.1.2.1.2] Mind insinuates dynamism, using static abstractions, so as to compensate (adjust, adapt) for this discrepancy/contradiction between noumenon and phenomenon


[1.1.2] Static, as an ambiguous concept which negates the dynamic, is a term referring to non-existence


[1.1.2.1] Static refers to an absolute state which is never experienced, but presumed in reference to noetic interpretations (abstractions)


[1.1.2.2] An absolute can be symbolized using many other terms, referring to the noetic abstraction: Being, One, Singularity, Perfect, Whole, Complete, God…


[1.1.2.3] Since the static is never, and can never, be experienced (perceived) it is conceptualized as the reverse of the experienced, proposing a noetic nullification of the (inter)active phenomenal


[1.1.2.3.1] This necessary constant and consistent rejection, negation, of Flux, so as to make life possible and to then construct abstractions (knowledge/understanding), as a means of preserving life (consciousness), proceeds towards the eventual replacement of the phenomenon by the more malleable, and therefore less stress inducing, noumenon ~ Nihilism


[1.1.2.3.1.1] The requirement of this negation to be constant and consistent is another way of describing the antagonism between organism and world, or self-ordering and fluctuating (inter)activity


[1.1.2.3.1.1.1] Agon is how the ancient Greeks describes this requirement, and this struggle against Flux to preserve self-ordering within its fragmenting disordering


[1.1.2.3.1.1.2] This consistency, of agon, is what is experienced as need/suffering as ordering must appropriate energies to maintain its consistency

Ά

[1.2] There is no difference between (inter)acting and existing as there is no inert state to separate the two concepts


[1.2.1] (Inter)Acting implies two, or more, and cannot be a singularity by definition


[1.2.1.1] A singularity is a contradiction to the concept of (inter)activity


[1.2.1.1.1] The theoretical near-absolute implies a duality which contradicts its unification into a singularity


[1.2.1.1.1.1] The actor always acts in reference to, or in relation to an-other actor


[1.2.1.1.1.1.1] Dualism, and Binary logic, is the first, and easiest form of understanding because it is the simplest reflection of observer, with observed


[1.2.1.1.1.1.1.1] Consciousness emerges as outwardly focused: it perceives other, in juxtaposition to an-other


[1.2.2] The static is a human limitation; more so it is a method for distinguishing and conceptualizing a particular rate, and pattern, of (inter)activity, from the dynamic background


[1.2.2.1] Distinguishing, or conceptualizing (interpreting) (some)thing into a unity (abstracting), and bringing it into the forefront of consciousness (focus), demands a cutting away of all extraneous (inter)actions (generalization), and it demands, more so, the shrinking of dimensions (simplification) by placing them within noetic, ambiguous, boundaries


[1.2.2.1.1] These conceptual boundaries, necessary as they might be, constitute the outer limits of human awareness ~ the perceptual-event-horizon of nous (noetic).


[1.2.2.1.2] Expansion of space/time entails the multiplication of possibilities, as space is a projection of them


[1.2.2.1.2.1] Expanding possibilities refer to multiplying (inter)activities


[1.2.3] (Inter)Activity is the dynamic, fluid, world in Flux (objective, phenomenon); interpretation is the simplifying/generalizing relating to it (subjective, noumenon)


[1.2.3.1] The “static” (absolute) refers to the subjective (interpretation) of the dynamic objective (interactive)


[1.2.3.1.1] The subjective (interpreting) mind, is part of the objective (interpreted) world, making the subjective a relationship of observer to observed


[1.2.3.1.1.1] The subjective relates to the objective by adjusting it to its own patterns of (inter)acting


[1.2.3.1.1.2] Mind (consciousness) is process seeking patterned processes outside itself (knowledge, understanding)


[1.2.3.1.1.2.1] To know is to find in other a pattern which is (re)cognized as belonging to self


[1.2.3.1.1.2.1.1]To know is to store, in simplified/generalized form, an experience of (inter)activity (past)


[1.2.3.1.1.2.1.1.1] Memories are experiences (interactions) simplified/generalized into code


[1.2.3.1.1.2.1.1.2] Genes are encoded, in simple/general forms, of experiences (past/nature) ~ immutable, determining (inter)actions which are unaffected by interpretation


[1.2.3.1.1.2.1.1.3] Memes are encoded, in simple/general forms, of experiences (past/nature) ~ mutable, determining (inter)actions which are affected by interpretation


[1.2.3.1.1.2.2] To understand is to find a unifying pattern in all knowing


[1.2.3.1.1.3]The subjective interpreting conscious mind discovers self in reflection; in juxtaposition to its simplifications/generalizations of the objective


[1.2.3.1.1.3.1] Identifying self, within the fluctuating dynamic, requires a negation of otherness, just as life is a rejection of Flux so as to preserve self-ordering


[1.2.3.1.1.3.1.1] This negation of otherness is a “bringing into focus” of the particular pattern within the multiplicity of (inter)acting patterns


[1.2.3.1.1.3.2] Conscious (interpreting) mind (noumenon) gradually proceeds towards increasing self-consciousness as a movement of subjective towards objective


[1.2.3.1.1.3.2.1] A conscious, observing, mind is constantly evaluating perceived patterns in relation to its need/suffering and/or in reference to a projected object/objective (ideal) state (goal, motive, end)


[1.2.3.1.1.3.2.1.1] Value is founded on this juxtaposition of projected probabilities (within the expanding possibilities of space-time) in relation to need/suffering (self-ordering), and in reference to a projected, desirable, object/objective (ideal)


[1.2.3.1.2] The relationship between objective (phenomenon) and subjective (noumenon) is antagonistic, or conflicting (contradicting), as the interpretation must constantly adjust to the ceaseless (inter)activity


[1.2.3.1.2.1] Constant adjustment is called consciousness ~ noumena


[1.2.3.1.2.1.1] Change is the (re)cognition of an alteration between one abstraction and the next


[1.2.3.1.2.1.1.1] Juxtaposition is what we call consciousness: continuous, dynamic, adjustment of organism to an indifferent fluctuating world


[1.2.3.1.2.1.1.1.1] Time is the measure of change based on these juxtapositions, and so it is dependent on the organism’s speed of abstracting (consciousness) as this is determined by its metabolic rates (rate of self-organizing adjustments)


[1.2.3.1.2.1.1.2] With this constant juxtaposition of static models (simplified/generalized ~ abstractions) the ambiguous (static) can experience the dynamic (inter)acting (Flux)


[1.2.3.1.2.1.1.3] Movement is the adjustment of probabilities in the altering possibilities


[1.2.3.1.2.2] On a visceral level the subjective conscious mind experiences this forced adjustment (adaptation) to the fluctuating objective world as need/suffering, and/or as stress


[1.2.3.1.2.2.1] Stress is the sensation of (inter)activity (Flux) upon the self-organizing incomplete unity (life)


[1.2.3.1.2.3] Need/Suffering is the experience of Flux


[1.2.3.1.2.3.1] Anxiety/Fear is the automatic (emotion) (re)action to this fluctuating, (inter)acting, otherness (world)


Ά


[1.3] This state of continuous (inter)activity flows along the path-of-least-resistance


[1.3.1] Path-of-Least-Resistance: A relationship of force produced by the (inter)action of diverse congruent flows


[1.3.1.1] Flow: Flux exhibiting a patterned direction (increasing possibilities) along the path-of-least-resistance


[1.3.1.1.1] A pattern always exhibits a flow as this is determined by its aggregate energies ~ this flow represents a decrease in tis dimensional participation, or a restriction of possibilities so as to make it probable


[1.3.1.1.1.1] Pattern is ordering, and so it is the description (interpretation, evaluation) of increased possibilities (probability) within the fluctuations which increase possibility


[1.3.1.2] The force of a congruent flow is determined by its participation in space-time ~ its possibilities as these are divided within dimensions (directions of flow)


[1.3.1.2.1] This is an expression of its solidity, its substantiality ~ mass


[1.3.1.2.1.1] Increase of space/time, or of possibilities as these are determined by (inter)activity, results in an increase of dimensions; the existent now being fragmented between increasing dimensions loses substantiality


[1.3.1.2.1.1.1] Decrease in substantiality, in turn, results in an increasingly waning resistance to disordering, as the increase of possibilities entails a decrease in resistance, making all possibility increasingly uniform in probability


[1.3.1.2.2] Mind interprets these divergent flows as sensual data: color, form, smell, texture, solidity, tone, rhythm, volume etc.


[1.3.1.3] Increase in possibilities, or the expansion of space/time, can be understood as a decrease in resistance or an increasing uniformity of resistance resulting in a tendency towards near-infinite possibilities ~ towards the absolute nothing of randomness


[1.3.1.3.1] Randomness is another term for Chaos


[1.3.1.3.2] Randomness refers to a state where (inter)activity follows no pattern of consistency


[1.3.1.3.2.1] Chaos is the absence of a consistent (reliable, predictable) behavioural pattern of (inter)activity


[1.3.1.3.2.1.1] Complexity is not chaos, as it simply describes a state where the pattern is not discerned due to the multiplicity of (inter)activities


[1.3.1.3.2.1.1.1] With no discernable pattern (re)cognized the mind interprets this as darkness, and/or void


[1.3.1.3.2.1.2] Absence of a pattern denotes an inconsistent (inter)activity, and not a complexity of (inter)activity


[1.3.1.3.2.1.2.1] Because the mind interprets this absence of a pattern as darkness/void, just as it does when it is unable to discern a pattern when it exceeds, in complexity, its ability to perceive and process data (due to genetic, organic, limitations) a confusion between complexity and chaos is established


[1.3.1.3.2.1.2.1.1] Confusion is resolved with a tautology ~ the mind must reduce all to a level it can process, even if this demands a presumption with no references


[1.3.1.3.3] As resistance becomes uniform, flow and fluidity decline exponentially, and given that to act is to exist, then this is what is called a towards no-thingness, or a towards non-existence


[1.3.1.3.3.1] In this case, non-existence refers to a state where life, and consciousness of existence, is rendered impossible


[1.3.1.3.3.1.1] Because life is self-ordering when ordering is made improbable, such as in Chaos (random interactivity), this state is comprehended as a negative


[1.3.1.3.3.1.1.1] Life is dependent on consistent, predictability ~ self-ordering refers to this struggle to maintain order within the fluctuating disordering


[1.3.1.4] The path-of-least-resistance is the normal path of all (inter)activities ~ The undertaking of an alternate path, a path-of-more-resistance is only possible for a congruence of energies that has developed the capacity to be conscious and to control and direct its aggregate processes (Will)


[1.3.1.4.1] Will is a mental agency which directs the organism’s aggregate energies by using a focus of energies, towards a projected object/objective, which increases their combined force, and so the amount of resistance they can overcome; these forms of congruent flows we call life


[1.3.1.4.1.1] Will evolves to offer an organism an advantage through efficiency ~ synergy


[1.3.1.4.1.2] The Will’s effectiveness is determined by the organism’s self-awareness, and its ability to gain control over its own processes, most of which are automatic, requiring no consciousness of them to continue


[1.3.1.5] Congruence: An ephemeral unity of flow, (inter)activity


[1.3.1.5.1] A congruence can be pure, made up of the same pattern (element), or a conjunction of different patterns finding ephemeral equilibrium, in relation to other patterns in congruity


[1.3.1.5.1.1] A congruity can be broken/disrupted, by a force equal, or superior, to the patterns participating in it, and/or to the quantity (mass) of patterns in congruity


[1.3.1.5.2] A current of fluidity exhibiting a congruity of (inter)activity (pattern) resulting in an emergent unity



[1.3.1.5.2.1] A unity is always emergent (probable), never finalized (absolute)


[1.3.1.5.2.1.1] Probability is a restriction of possibility ~ another way of saying ordering


[1.3.1.5.2.1.1.1] To order is to reduce possibilities (space) ~ it is a rejection of Flux so as to make life possible


[1.3.1.5.3] As (inter)activity increases the differentiation in force (dimensional participation) creates pockets of disequilibrium in the force of flow


[1.3.1.5.4] When, and if, aggregate force of a flow increases, acquiring more and more force, as its flow along the path-of-least-resistance assimilates more and more (inter)actions into its momentary emergent unity; or it decreases in force slowly dissipating due to the attrition of (inter)activity


[1.3.1.5.4.1] This is what is interpreted, by a living organism, as the different kinds of matter and energy


[1.3.1.5.4.2] This gradual effect of attrition upon activity is what results in the gradual decline towards chaos, creating our sensation of existence and linear time


[1.3.1.5.4.2.1] An organism relates to time in a negative way because time is a measure of change, or the measure of (inter)activity, and increasing Chaos


[1.3.1.5.5] (Inter)Activity: The influence (effect) of one congruent Flow over another


[1.3.1.5.5.1] Absorption, assimilation, repulsion, attraction, consumption, organization, fragmentation are all modes of (inter)acting


[1.3.1.5.5.2] (Inter)Activity is expressed as Repulsion/Attraction.
Each pattern, attracts and repels, simultaneously


[1.3.1.5.5.2.1] Repulsion/Attraction, where space is understood as possibility – warping of space/time

Repulsion = increase of probability to exclude – push away – low probability for congruence
Attraction = increase of probability to include – pull towards – high probability for congruence

Incompatible vibration/oscillation (pattern) increasing friction when (inter)acting.
Compatible vibration/oscillation (pattern) decreasing friction when (inter)acting.


[1.3.1.5.5.2.1.1] Attraction = patterns in a degree of harmony – positive


[1.3.1.5.5.2.1.1.1] Congruity’s field of attraction is determined by its aggregate energies (sum of patterns) and the degree of their harmony


[1.3.1.5.5.2.1.2] Repulsion = patterns in a degree of disharmony – negative


[1.3.1.5.5.2.1.2.1] Congruity’s field of repulsion is determined by its aggregate energies (sum of patterns) and the degree of disharmony


[1.3.1.5.5.2] (Inter)Activity can be understood as an exchange of energies


[1.3.1.5.5.2.1] During every (inter)action some degree of energy is lost to the (inter)acting congruences ~ attrition (friction)


[1.3.1.5.5.2.1.1] Some energies lose consistency, or a pattern of (inter)acting, becoming random


[1.3.1.5.5.2.1.1.1] This gradual increase in random (inter)activities, produced by patterns (inter)acting, and the friction they produce, is what results in increasing Chaos


[1.3.1.5.5.2.1.2] This “lost” energy sometimes acquires the fluidity of the participating congruencies’ and their median rate of fluidity, or median aggregate energy, splitting-off into one, or more, congruencies


[1.3.1.5.5.2.1.2.1] This succession of splintering-off and of acquiring a lower, median, rate of flow, is what eventually results in increasing fragmentation (complexity), and in a gradual increase in uniformity (median rate of interactivity)


[1.3.1.5.5.2.1.2.2] Multiplicity (complexity) is a consequence of this (inter)active attrition ~ from the near-absolute–oneness, or the finite towards the near-absolute-infinite


[1.3.1.5.5.2.1.2.3] Oneness, or wholeness, is a conception of a theoretical singularity (God, Thing, Monad), which implies an absolute probable (certainty), and a reduction of possibility (uncertainty) to an absolute

Ά

[1.4] Activity is neither a characteristic of existing nor some add-on which an existing “thing” possesses; activity is the very manifestation of it


[1.4.1] There is no-thing which can be said to exist, or that has, or will ever exist, which is not dynamic


[1.4.1.1] The concept (abstraction) or “thing” is another word representing a noetic model, and is no more than another way of describing the non-existent absolute


[1.4.2] There is not a “thing” which just happens to be active and can very well be, or become at the some later point, inactive ~ A thing is how (inter)activity is simplified/generalized


[1.4.2.1] By eliminating activity one is eliminating the very aspect of existing which makes it perceptible ~ apparent


[1.4.2.1.1] What is apparent is what exhibits a divergence from the otherness, or from the background fluidity as this is perceived by a consciousness


[1.4.2.2] The question: “What is active?”, or “What is it which is (inter)acting?” is a nonsensical one ~ It is a question exposing a dependence on static models, and one falling into the error of taking them literally, to make sense of dynamic processes


[1.4.2.2.1] Language is the formalized, established, encoding of experiences, using symbols


[1.4.2.2.1.1] Language refers to the noumenon, the abstraction, the interpretation of the dynamic fluid ~ an interpretation of the (inter)active, apparent, phenomenon


[1.4.2.2.1.1.1] When taken literally, and not artistically, figuratively, language produces confusion rather than clarity


[1.4.2.2.1.1.1.1] Taking linguistic codes literally is the bedrock of nihilism


[1.4.2.2.1.1.1.2] Paradoxes are by-products of this discrepancy of noumenon and phenomenon, when the word, referring/representing the noumenon is taken as a starting proposition


[1.4.2.2.2] The question presupposes exactly what it is asking for, leading to circular reasoning and solipsism


[1.4.2.2.2.1] Many philosophical conundrums are founded on this presupposing what is then explored, and dissected as self-evident


[1.4.2.2.3] Language is a symbolic reflection of mental constructs, built with the interpretation of sensual datum; as such language also reflects human limitations and methodologies such as dualism


[1.4.2.3] Things: mental fabrications used to project upon reality what it lacks, or what is absent from it; they are static, inert, mental abstractions: pure noetic devices


[1.4.2.3.1] Thing(s), whatever other label it is given, is no more than the freezing of fluidity, the Flux/Flow, to make it comprehensible and practical ~ useful


[1.4.2.3.1.1] There are different ways to define the abstraction of reality into “things” such as: objects, unities, particles, points in space/time (geometry) locations, time periods, mathematical concepts such as 1 and 0, God, substances, musical notes etc.


[1.4.2.3.2] By “cutting away” dimensional participation (simplifying/generalizing), reality, the mind makes the world comprehensible


[1.4.2.3.2.1] Cutting away means a reduction of dimensional possibilities so as to make the apparent useful ~ another way of saying simplifying/generalizing (abstracting), or noumenon


[1.4.2.3.2.2] This dimensional “cutting away” constitutes a rift, a distance between observing consciousness, and observed


[1.4.2.3.2.2.1] This begins the dualisms necessary for consciousness to emerge as a tool for directing the organism’s aggregate energies efficiently, increasing effectivity


[1.4.2.3.2.3] The thing constitutes a bringing into focus of a repeating pattern by separating it from (inter)actions beyond a certain point in space/time; a point established by the particular mind’s quality: perceptual-event-horizon


[1.4.2.3.2.3.1] This establishes the mind’s perceptual boundaries, or the furthest extent of its event horizon: the extent of its awareness


[1.4.2.3.2.3.2] Wisdom/Intelligence: he more sensitive, sensually aware and capable of processing sensual data the mind is, all the more extended is its perceptual-event-horizon


[1.4.2.3.2.3.2.1] This increase in awareness represents an expansion of possibility, and the discernment of probabilities within it


[1.4.2.3.2.3.3] Pattern recognition and processing (integrating patterns into broader ideas) as well as the successful projection of said patterns into the unknown is what is usually called intelligence


[1.4.2.3.2.3.3.1] Imagination is a fundamental part of this projection of the known into the unknown


[1.4.2.3.2.3.3.1.1] This projection refers to the accumulated experiences, and their evaluation (processing) used as an object/objective to orient the organism in space/time


[1.4.2.3.2.3.3.1.2] The evaluation of the object/objective is determined by the quality and the quantity of data included in the processing


[1.4.2.3.2.3.3.1.3] The evaluation of the projected object/objective is determined by this starting evaluation of experiences: past/nature (first-hand knowledge/understanding), as well as of second-hand, adopted, experiences (knowledge)


[1.4.2.3.2.3.3.1.4] An object/objective is a projected idea(l) state, either sued as a desirable destination, and or as a tool for orienting the will within the (inter)active Flux


[1.4.2.3.2.3.3.2] If a pattern exists beyond a mind’s perceptual-event-horizon, it is included in the dark, black, void, interpretation


[1.4.2.3.2.3.3.3] The consistent, regularity of an active pattern makes it conceivable, by simplifying it into a code, and projectable, as a possibility with probability potential


[1.4.2.3.2.3.3.3.1] Consistency is what determines the pattern’s quality, and its utility: its value first in relation to the organism’s need/suffering, and then in reference to its projected object/objective


[1.4.2.3.2.4] In such a manner the conscious mind makes the world measurable; it conceives of dimensions

Ά

[1.5] (Inter)Activity is experienced as change, and it is measured with time, or any other dimension


[1.5.1] Change: The juxtaposition of abstractions in the mind leading to the awareness of a divergence, an alteration, indicating a slight shift; a discrepancy which can only be explained as fluctuation occurring in-between noumena (abstractions), as part of a continuous fluidity


[1.5.1.1] Successive juxtaposition of mental models (abstractions), like in a movie reel, produces the sensation of movement and establishes the arrow of time ~ temporal Flow


[1.5.1.2] This constant (inter)activity, producing constant change, requires a mind which is constantly updating and re-evaluating itself and the world around it: stream of thought; also called consciousness


[1.5.2] Dimensions: Height/Width/Length are a priori methods of constructing abstractions so as to establish position and direction


[1.5.2.1] Dimensions are founded no the human form, with the head above the torso, creating a noetic grid, divided into four planes across which possibilities are projected


[1.5.2.1.1] Three-dimensional space indicates the three directions the noetic can project possibilities, and focus itself in relation to, with the fourth, that of time, indicating the point, within this noetic grid, the phenomenon can occupy, when it is abstracted into a static thing (object/objective)


[1.5.2.1.1.1] The ambiguous edges of this noetic grid of noetic, overlapping, planes represent the outer perimeter of the mind’s perceptual-event-horizon


[1.5.2.1.1.2] Further dimensions unfold, in relation to this first perceptual, noetic, grid, as a result of increasing sensual acuity, multiplied by techniques/technologies, which expose the mind to theoretical directions of possibility (space), within these original three (four)


[1.5.2.1.1.3] Multi-dimensional reality simply exposes the simplification of reality using the evolved methods of perceiving, and, hint at the absence of any absolute by fragmenting dimensions infinitely


[1.5.2.2] Each dimension is a projection towards a different approach to the same projected absolute: object/objective


[1.5.2.2.1] Multiple dimensions are multiple approaches, each with its own network of projected possibilities


[1.5.2.3] Fragmentation of space-time is the fragmentation of a near singular one-dimension into multiple dimensions: fragmentation of the certain probable (order) towards the uncertain possible (chaos)


[1.5.2.3.1] This increase is essentially an increase, an inflation, of (inter)activity, resulting in increasing complexity


[1.5.2.3.1.1] Veering towards the near-absolute state of chaos means that possibilities are tending towards the infinite (infinite space-time) where possibilities are also infinite: chaos


[1.5.2.3.1.1.1] At this point the notion of probability is nonsensical since probability is an evaluation of patterns (order) which are predictable because they are governed by limited possibilities


[1.5.2.4] Dimensions are mental projections of possibilities founded on the past (experience/knowledge, evolutionary methodology) and projected into the unknown


[1.5.2.4.1] The quantitative and qualitative level of this foundation in the past determines the projected possibility’s probability


[1.5.2.4.1.1] Expansion of space represents a multiplication of dimensional possibilities tending towards the near-absolute infinite


[1.5.2.4.2] Given that knowledge is incomplete and experience always lacking, probabilities are assumed to be infinite, in theory, making dimensions the conceptual extent, or limit, of the human mind’s ability to perceive and to abstract


[1.5.2.5] Within this dimensional grid, change is determined and interpreted as a movement and/or a temporal dimension is added


[1.5.2.6] Once codified and translated into mathematical language this a priori mental grid becomes geometry


[1.5.2.6.1] Geometry: The codification and symbolic display of the mind’s mental grid outside of itself; representing man’s relationship with the fluid environment


[1.5.2.6.1.1] The human mind’s limitation to the perception of three-dimensional space is represented in the early geometrical constructs he uses to reflect this perceptual understanding


[1.5.2.6.1.2] Once encoded, established as universal and given common symbols geometry can be transmitted from mind to mind and used to manipulate and control a fluid environment


[1.5.2.6.1.3] A direct consequence of this symbolic interpretation of internal mental grids, beginning with drawings, and the need to establish measurements to define and measure them, leads to the language of mathematics


[1.5.2.6.1.4] Math: The most abstracted form of symbolization and codification


[1.5.2.6.1.4.1] Math being a reflection of mental methods is founded on the basic binary logic of on/off which is then symbolized numerically as 1/0


[1.5.2.6.1.4.1.1] The 1 and the 0 are the same singular concept perceived from opposite vantage points; one being the flipside to nil


[1.5.2.6.1.4.2] For the human mind the numerical value of 1 represents activity reduced down to a simplified, generalized, metaphor and the annulling value of 0 represents the presumed static ~ The 0, in essence, is the state of “off” or “no flow” through the brain’s synaptic nerves and is a presumed negation of reality


[1.5.2.6.2] Time:  The measurement of change, based on the organisms metabolic rate, or its own rate of fluidity, and its synaptic speeds ~ its ability to process and abstract sensual data


[1.5.2.6.2.1] The perception of time, like with all value judgments, is determined by a juxtaposition of the perceiving mind and the perceived otherness and so it too is a relationship and a measurement of (inter)activity


[1.5.2.6.2.2] The primary and most primitive indication of the passage of time are natural cycles; life and death being the most profound experience of these patterns


[1.5.2.6.3] Since the perception of change, measured by time, is a juxtaposition of perceiver with the perceived (subject and object) the world is experienced as a perpetual falling-away; an otherness always at an ever-increasing distance


[1.5.2.7] Space: The projection of possibilities, deduced from a pattern’s repetitive behavior and the degree of its temporality, or rate of change


[1.5.2.7.1] Although the concept of Flux implies a multi-dimensional frontier, the mind, as it has evolved, is incapable of perceiving and/or processing sensual data above a certain limit (limit established by its inherited past and part of its Becoming) making the four dimensions the elusive boundaries of human perception


[1.5.2.7.2] These projections of possibilities of patterns expose different minds to different perceptions of time/space


[1.5.2.7.2.1] The more complex and perceptive mind (sophisticated) will be exposed to a more intricate space/time continuum than a simpler (unsophisticated) mind can ever be

[1.6] This perceived state of Flux displays fluctuations in the frequencies of its activity


[1.6.1] It is these fluctuations in activity which makes existence perceptible ~ experienced/apparent


[1.6.1.1] Quantity of fluctuations and divergences the mind can perceive and process, determines the precision and sophistication of its awareness


[1.6.1.1.1] To make sense of the world, to understand it, entails finding patterns of consistent predictability in it ~ this constitutes an evaluation of probability


[1.6.1.1.1.1] The expansion of space and the explosion of possibility this represents, accompanied by a speeding up of fragmentation, due to the decline in resistance to it, makes probability progressively incalculable and irrelevant


[1.6.1.1.1.1.1] As order decreases friction between different rates of flow is reduced ~ reality settles upon a gradually decreasing median, which is accompanied by an increase in randomness (chaos)


[1.6.1.1.1.1.2] The tendency towards infinite possibility, or the absolute chaotic, makes probability a tendency towards certainty, as all which is possible now becomes uniformly probable


[1.6.2] These divergences in rates of fluidity (Flux/Flow) are what man comes to define and categorize as elements, forces, energies or forms of matter, each with their own particular characteristics or particular rates of fluidity in relation to the observing, interpreting, conscious mind


[1.6.2.1] Thusly, the sensitivity of the sense organ to fluctuations and divergences as well as the capacity of the mind to process them and integrate them into cohesive mental models makes the conceptions of more sophisticated minds far more precise and elaborate


[1.6.2.1.1] What for a simpler consciousness is far too complex to understand, interpreting it as void or darkness or simply chaos, for a more sophisticated mind is no more than obvious; where a simpler mind sees uniformity a more complex mind perceives minute divergences in detail and a more numerous multiplicity of possibilities

Ά

[1.7] Flux/Flow: As it pertains to this existential state of constant (inter)activity the terms Flux and Flow refer to a projection of possibilities and probabilities


[1.7.1] Flux indicates a multi-directional, multi-dimensional (inter)activity; Flow indicates a tri-directional, three-dimensional (inter)activity with the fourth being the movement through or towards them


[1.7.1.1] Flow indicates a direction towards a path-of-least-resistance, which can only be willfully diverged from, by the focusing of aggregate energies so as to multiply the level of resistance it relates to as (least)


[1.7.1.1.1] Taking the path-of-more (most)-resistance is a strategic choice, meant to attain an advantage by accepting a higher risk


[1.7.1.1.1.1] This choice is only possible to a conscious organism which has attained a level of awareness which makes this option more probable


[1.7.1.2] The mind’s linear method of juxtaposing mental abstractions restricts its conception of possibilities on a two-dimensional plane, with the third being the distance of the perceiving mind from what is perceived; time being the projected (inter)actions required to transverse this distance

Ά

[1.8] There is no evidence of a beginning, or of an end, to this constant state, and so none is assumed or should be presumed ~ The concepts, in fact, contradict experience of/with world


[1.8.1 ] “Process” is a good way to describe this constant (inter)activity; “Becoming” is another


[1.8.1.1] Both terms indicate a dynamic (inter)activity with no destination and no ultimate goal


[1.8.1.1.1] What goals and destinations come about are the product of human minds projecting absolutes as a way of orienting the mind and offering a focus for the Will


[1.8.2] Big Bang:  The nearest point towards the absolute (near-singular point of infinite space/time) the near-absolute realization of infinite possibilities


[1.8.2.1] Not a singular event, but an ongoing process ~ Creation


[1.8.2.1.1] This cannot be called a “beginning”, or an “end” as it is not a singular event but an ongoing process ~ There is no no-thing out of which this some-thing springs out of, or extends out of, spontaneously, or by design


[1.8.2.2] The Big Bang represents the theoretical, within a particular human mental model, closest point to a state of absolute order ~ because the absolute is absent, this absolute is never attained


[1.8.2.3] Order is a state of minimal possibilities as there is almost no activity ~ This near-ordered state of the Big Bang is characterized by minimal possibilities; ergo, of minimal space/time dimensions


[1.8.2.3.1] Cold and darkness is a characteristic of the “absolute” or any approach towards it, as it indicates a decrease in (inter)activity, another word for “energy”


[1.8.2.3.1.1] The Big Bang is therefore described as a sudden heating; a sudden explosion of energy ~ In other words it is a comparison between the extreme inflation of possibilities and (inter)activities with the previous theoretical state of a near-absolute


[1.8.2.3.1.1.1] Given the ordering role of the mind and the organism’s reliance on the unity this ordering manifests as, the Big Bang represents a conceptual idealized state of the near-absolute that may be called “God” if the element of will is added to it


[1.8.2.3.1.2] From this near-point of an absolute unity, near-zero possibilities arise and then gradually increase expansion of space-time (theoretical explosion towards near-infinite possibilities), accompanied by an increase in the rate of change and dimensions


[1.8.2.3.1.2.1] Self-organizing, life, is pressured to adjust to increasing (inflating) possibilities, requiring increasing level of energies


[1.8.2.3.1.2.1.1] Eventually the ability of evolutionary methods of self-organization are surpassed by the increasing possibilities, we call chaos, and newer methods of self-organization attempt to bridge the gap between disordering reality and ordering life/consciousness


[1.8.2.4] The element of disordering, or of randomness increases exponentially bringing about increasing (inter)activity and the increasing possibilities this entails ~ space inflation


[1.8.2.4.1] Inflation of space/time increases constantly until it approaches its near-infinite condition


[1.8.2.4.1.1] Lacking infinite energies, to occupy infinite points in space/time (realizing infinite possibilities ~ Being) the movement towards the absolute can never be finalized


[1.8.2.4.1.1.1] Absolute-Being (Order), and Absolute-Randomness (Chaos), are therefore increasingly improbable the closer one approaches (noetically) their realization


[1.8.2.4.2] At this point near infinite (inter)actions result in near-infinite possibilities where the exchange in energies, (inter)activity presupposes, creates increasing uniformity


[1.8.2.4.2.1] Increasing uniformity simply means a slow elimination of divergence in rates of flow ~ Matter and Energy converge into a uniform state


[1.8.2.4.2.1.1] Near-infinite (inter)activity creates attrition in the flow where the pockets of order are gradually eliminated resulting in an exponential increase in expansion approaching the nearly-infinite


[1.8.2.4.2.1.1.1] At this stage, energy is decreased towards the absolute nil point, the singular point, which is nothing other than the “absolute” approached from a different direction


[1.8.2.4.2.1.1.2] As such existence is both a streaming away and a going towards the near-absolute singular


[1.8.2.4.3] Big Crunch: The Big Bang presupposes in binary logic an antithesis; an annulment ~ As a theoretical concept the Big Crunch is the exact opposite of the Big Bang yet, at the same time, it is but the same singularity approached from an opposite vantage point


[1.8.2.4.3.1] Given what has been said already, the Big Crunch represents, metaphorically and in theory, an exponentially increasing uniformity veering towards near-absolute possibilities (near absolute randomness), one of which being the Big Bang


[1.8.2.4.3.1.1] Given that space is the projection of possibilities the slow decay towards entropy represents a gradually increasing acceleration of fragmentation, or an exponentially expanding space/time continuum


[1.8.2.4.3.1.1.1] Since matter represents a degree of order the increase of disordering is accompanied by a proportional decrease in materiality ~ This decrease explains the increasing acceleration of entropy since resistance dissipates


[1.8.2.4.3.1.1.1.1] Time, being a measurement of change, measures the period of decay as being faster, because there change accelerates as fragmentation dissolves towards near-absolute randomness


[1.8.2.4.3.1.1.1.2] The early stage of existence, following the Big Bang, would be a stage of slow change, and so characterized by a temporal length, slowly accelerating


[1.8.2.4.3.2] Matter: A variation of congruent activity exhibiting a slower rate of (inter)activity in relation to the observer


[1.8.2.4.3.2.1] Slower rate of change can be defined as a result of greater possibility ~ a higher level of possibilities


[1.8.2.4.3.2.1.1] Given that space has been defined as possibility, caused by (inter)activity, matter is a congruency of flow with multi-dimensional possibilities


[1.8.2.4.3.2.1.1.1] This multi-dimensional participation decreases its possibilities towards dimension of increasing entropy ~ Therefore, it is slower in rate of activity as (inter)activities are shared by the multiple-dimensions, or its possibilities are fragmented


[1.8.2.4.3.2.1.2] Matter, therefore, is an emergent unity, a congruence of flow, dividing its possibilities (spatial dimensions) thusly making it slower to change (temporal), or less (inter)active within each particular dimension


[1.8.2.4.3.2.2] Energy:   Like matter, energy is a variation of activity ~ In this case, it is a faster rate of (inter)action in relation to the observer


[1.8.2.4.3.2.2.1] Faster rate of activity, in comparison to matter, energy exhibits, is owed to the fact of its decreased dimensional participation


[1.8.2.4.3.2.2.1.1] Decrease in possibilities is, in fact, a return to the state of near-absolute order ~ The Big Bang approached – Big Crunch


[1.8.2.4.3.2.2.1.2] Energy has an increased rate of change (movement), spatial participation, within one dimensional field and so it has less in all other dimensional fields


[1.8.2.4.3.2.2.2] It is possible for matter and energy to occupy the same space-time without interacting significantly ~ Because matter has decreased possibilities towards all dimensions, given that its sum total of possibilities are divided between multiple fields (dimensions), whereas the reverse is the case with energy, the probability of (inter)acting is decreased


[1.8.2.4.3.2.2.2.1] Probability: A decrease of possibility, veering towards the absolute (certain), which is infinite probability


[1.8.2.4.3.2.2.3] Light: The limit of visual perception: perceptual-event-horizon


[1.8.2.4.3.2.2.3.1] Light is the fastest form of (inter)activity the human mind can process, and so it evolves as the medium utilized by one of the senses to attain a survival advantage


[1.8.2.4.3.2.2.3.2] The point at which human ability to perceive patterns of activity falls towards nothingness, interpreting this absence of perception as darkness


[1.8.2.4.3.2.2.3.3] Light is interpreted as a brilliance with no discernable variants, unless it is slowed down to a level where the mind can perceive patterns within it

Ά

[1.9] It is clear that where there is no activity there can be nothing which can be said to exist ~ Any decrease in activity, (inter)activity, is a form of falling out of existence, or of ceasing to exist


[1.9.1] As activity increases, freeing itself, as it were, from the near-absence of possibilities it tumbles towards (Becoming) near-infinite possibilities (absolute Being) bringing about its own cessation


[1.9.1.1] Being: Another term for the absent-absolute


[1.9.1.1.1] Becoming: A process “towards” the absent-absolute where it is defined as “Being” so as to offer a reference point for orientation within the Flux/Flow


[1.9.1.2] Of course this looping effect is nothing more than a way of trying to conceptualize what the mind cannot ~ There is no reason to assume that the world or existence will continue on indefinitely, or that this abstraction constitutes a self-perpetuating process, which the mind can only hope to understand ambiguously


[1.9.1.3] Taking this mental model as a starting point we can see how the “beginning” and the “end” constitute two sides of the same near-absolute point


[1.9.1.3.1] The scientific model of the Big Bang is the flip-side to the coming Big Crunch; not points in space/time or singular events, but ongoing processes viewed from different vantage points ~ one coming from (creation) the other going towards (destruction – de-construction)


[1.9.1.4] Universe: A general term used to describe, in very uncertain terms, the totality of human perceptions and/or possibilities, known and unknown, encompassed by the simplifying and generalizing boundaries necessary to make this concept comprehensible


[1.9.1.4.1] Sum total of all that exists incorporated within a single model ~ a singularity of one: a fabricated absolute


[1.9.1.4.2] Concept of Universe implies a border, an outer limit to existence, contradicting the infinite ~ Uni-fying


[1.9.1.4.2.1] An expanding universe would imply a limit forever disappearing into the distance ~ approaching the outer limits of reality would forever be an approach requiring a speed in excess of universal inflation


[1.9.1.4.2.2] Theory of multi-verses is a contradiction of the concept of uni-verse ~ One would have to redefine the concept, or accept them as linguistic; metaphors, symbols, referring back to mental abstractions


[1.9.1.4.3] Absolute represents the antithesis to what is perceived, to the world itself, and as such is the natural product of a living organism and a consciousness which (re)acts to it in a negative way


[1.9.1.4.3.1] Negative/Positive: The concepts of negative and positive are totally arbitrary and founded upon human binary logic


[1.9.1.4.3.1.1] There is no such thing in the universe which is absolutely negative or positive, as there is no such thing as thing or an absolute


[1.9.1.4.3.1.1.1] From a purely objective standpoint positive refers to the state where existence is possible ~ in other words positive refers to (inter)activity; negative would be a reference to what is non-existent, or inactive, or with no possibility


[1.9.1.4.3.1.1.1.1] From a subjective standpoint negative refers to everything the organism needs and is absent: in other words it refers to the absence of an absolute; positive, in this case, is inverted into the conception of all which lacks an absolute


[1.9.1.4.3.1.1.1.2] Nihilism is the imposition of the noumenon over the phenomenon, or the acceptance of the subjective as superior, preferable, to the objective; the abstraction is accepted literally, rather than as a representation, interpretation of the world


[1.9.1.4.3.1.2] Words, such as of negative/positive, only make sense and have meaning in relation to the mind using them ~ The mind places itself in the center of them and then projects outward, towards either direction in its conceptual and perceptual-event-horizon using its interests and its hopes as guide and reason


[1.9.1.4.3.1.2.1] From a purely emotional, automatic, primitive, perspective, subjectivity is the first stage in awareness, and the one which is most comforting, and intimate


[1.9.1.4.3.1.2.1.1] Instead of the organism reflecting upon the world, the world becomes a reflection of the mind; noumenon creating phenomenon, rather than it interpreting it


[1.9.1.4.3.1.3] There are many uses for the concepts of negative/positive ~ In magnetism they refer to attraction and repulsion, in morality they might refer to constructive and destructive behaviours but as a general metaphysical tool they refer to phenomena requiring effort, energy (force) to come about and to persist (positive), and to phenomena that require no energy to come about and to persist (negative)


[1.9.1.4.3.1.3.1] Thusly we can categorize some basic general concepts as such:  Positive- Life, Light, Heat, Unity, Attraction, Consciousness, Order, Power etc. <> Negative- Darkness, Cold, Lifelessness, Disunity, Repulsion, Weakness, Death etc.

[2] Life: The state of self-perpetuating, self-correcting, self-ordering flow


[2.1] The term “emergent unity” can be used to describe this state as the word “unity” implies an order and the word “emergent” implies an appearance which has not been completed


[2.1.1] Life, the emergent unity, emerges with a projected potential order already programmed into its processes ~ It then adds to them or suffers their reduction


[2.1.1.1] Potential: Inherited probability as this has been determined (evaluated, judged) by the emergent unity’s (inter)activity with otherness


[2.1.1.1.1.1] Potential adjusts in relation to the resistant force of the fluctuating otherness


[2.1.1.1.1.2] Potential is a relationship, a relating, between emergent unity, and its fluctuating aggregate energies, with environment, and its fluctuating otherness


[2.1.2] Order is never complete, it is never absolute, and/or perfect, and so this ordering is always a process towards, never a fact


[2.1.2.1] Any completion of this process would constitute an end (telos), as this would be a realization of what is absent


[2.1.2.1.1] Once “perfection”, or the absolute order, has been attained there is nowhere to move towards; any change, at this stage, would constitute a contradiction of itself


[2.1.2.1.1.1] Any attempt to baptize this process as the “nature of perfection” is simply renaming, in a contradictory manner, what all living organisms perceive as what it is: need/suffering brought on by an inherent lack in the emergent unity itself


[2.1.2.1.1.1.1] Emergent unity feels its own lack, as a desire requiring fulfilment


[2.1.2.1.1.1.2] Like all baptismal rituals this one gives a name to the reborn, so as to cleans it from tis imperfections (sins of omission): the name is the word


[2.1.2.1.1.1.2.1] Sense and sensation are to be discredited as illusory, so as to establish the “positivity” of the world’s perfection; its wholeness and completeness


[2.1.2.1.1.1.3] To overcome this conundrum all popular spiritual movements must construct a theory wherein human consciousness is an illusion, or some transitory state towards the absent-absolute


[2.1.2.1.1.1.4] Another method is to rename, to baptize, the lack as fullness, using the ambiguity of the immanent to imply a hovering beyondness which is never made actual


[2.1.2.1.1.1.4.1] Immanence has the psychological characteristics of a coming guest ~ We are told his presence is immanent, increasing our apprehension, but he never arrives; he is “real” merely because he is always about to come, making his presence palatable, and his existence is presupposed without even being experienced other than as an expectation (desire)


[2.1.2.1.1.1.4.2] The renaming of this sensation of need/lack as a fullness has all the benefits of a rite of passage ~ One is ushered into a mystery which does not require explanation and which contradicts all experience of existing


[2.1.2.1.1.1.4.2.1] To deal with the contradiction between the ideal and the real, all sorts of constructs are provided; all of which posit the possibility that man is disillusioned; detached from his real essence and requiring a regiment of meditations and ascetic cleansing to find himself in the emptiness which is full


[2.1.2.1.1.1.4.2.2] Just as with the Big Bang/Big Crunch dichotomy how one approaches the matter, your psychological attitude towards the singularity, determines your definitions and your relationship with it ~ In this case a lack of Being can be turned into a fullness of becoming, and the absence of an absolute can be turned into a presence of possibilities (potential), yet infinite fullness just as infinite emptiness constitute the same outcome; in the end a degree of lacking is always required to explain both one’s sensation of existing and one’s potentials

Ά

[2.2] There is no need for a reason, or a motive, for life to emerge out of this tumultuous soup of (inter)activity, for the (inter)activity implied constitutes a possibility that it may eventually, and inevitably, emerge


[2.2.1] The emergence of life cannot be adequately defined or described unless one understands it as a lingering remnant of a past near absolute state, or order (re)acting to the increasing disordering


[2.2.1.1] Life is always a reference back to the nearest point of completion, which is the near-absolute unity of order: past


[2.2.1.1.1] Life is an ordering within the disordering; a resistance to, and a rejection of, entropy; this includes the tool which serves life and living, which is consciousness


[2.2.1.1.1.1] For the living order is attractive and disorder is repulsive ~ interpreting the former as positive and the latter as negative


[2.2.1.1.1.1.1] Beauty in the physical realm, and intelligence in the mental context, constitute appearances of higher degrees of ordering which are seductive to a perceiving mind possessing lower degrees of either, or both


[2.2.1.1.1.1.1.1] Beauty is symmetry of form, inherited and reflecting the past/nature; intelligence is symmetry of mind/brain, inherited as potential and nurtured/developed through (inter)activity


[2.2.1.1.1.1.1.2] Beauty, as another word for order, is seductive to an organism that depends upon and covets order to continue to be conscious of existence; to preserve itself within the Flux

Ά

[2.3] As a by-product of this self-maintenance the living organism directs itself contrary to the flow of disorder; it resists fragmentation


[2.3.1] The fundamental characteristic of life is willful (inter)activity ~ The capacity to direct the congruent energies at the disposal of an emergent unity towards a projected absolute: an object/objective


[2.3.1.1] To Will, is to will-towards; to not will is to be cast adrift the naturally occurring, effortless flow towards increasing entropy ~ Ergo, to will is to will towards an absolute which is absent: an absolute order


[2.3.1.1.1] This willing towards the projected absolute, the absent-absolute, this willing of order, or God, or Being, is a willing of the antithesis to increasing entropy ~ a form of resistance to the flow, to time


[2.3.1.1.2] Immediacy of this control makes the Will synonymous with self


[2.3.1.1.2.1] This part of the emergent unity’s functions is assumed to be the core of an organism’s, or a person’s, identity ~ The observer always detaches from the observed and considers itself the ego


[2.3.1.1.2.1.1] Self-Consciousness discovers self among otherness, beginning the process towards self-discovery


[2.3.1.1.2.1.2] The part of the mind/brain perceiving itself is always the unperceived “I” ~ forever mysterious and perceptible in reflection


[2.3.1.1.3] Free-Will: A self-contradicting concept which denotes a need, which is satiated by willing an object/objective and then evokes freedom, independence, which is the antithesis of need ~ the sensation of dependence


[2.3.1.1.3.1] Will, being the focus of all aggregate energies at the emergent unity’s disposal upon an object/objective, is dependent upon the past, which determines these aggregate energies, the emergent unity’s ability to focus them, and upon the object/objective orienting its energies


[2.3.1.1.3.1.1] Freedom implies absolute or a degree of independence; need implies a degree of dependence; the concept, taken to their extreme cancel each other out leaving only “degree” to be evaluated


[2.3.1.1.3.1.1.1] Degree of independence/dependence is a value judgment indicating a difference in power


[2.3.1.1.3.1.1.2] Absolute independence, freedom, like the concepts of omnipotence and omniscience are concepts implying the absent-absolute: the one, the perfect, God


[2.3.1.1.3.2] What power to resist the determination of the past a Will possesses is decided by its ability to choose the path-of-more-resistance in this way increasing its habituation with the struggle and the sensation of need/suffering this entails


[2.3.1.1.3.2.1] The direction the Will focuses its aggregate energies, the quality of the object/objective it directs itself towards and the path it undertakes to attain it, are the only indications of free-will possible


[2.3.1.1.4] Object/Objective: Another term for the absent-absolute


[2.3.1.1.4.1] Projection of the mind’s abstraction of reality: the interpretation of its perceived (inter)activity


[2.3.1.1.4.2] Object/objective is perceived as a two-dimensional form, the third dimension being the intervening space (unpredictable possibility) between observer and observed, and the fourth, time, being the estimation and experiencing of (inter)actions, changes, that would occur during the approach to the object/objective (potential risks and costs)


[2.3.1.1.4.3] The object/objective is always the antithesis to the perceived as it represents the mind’s (re)active nature to the perceived


[2.3.1.1.4.3.1] If taken literally the object/objective will always disappoint; taken figuratively, as a tool, it provides a focus that increases effectiveness


[2.3.1.1.4.4] Willful movement towards the projected, but absent, absolute in the form of an object/objective characterizes the mind moving and projecting as it constitutes an aspect of its need/suffering


[2.3.1.1.4.4.1] The form this projection takes (object/objective can also be called the idea, or the ideal) exposes the projecting and (inter)acting individual’s character, its essence, and its evaluation of itself and of the world around it


[2.3.1.1.4.4.1.1] In this way is the extent and the nature of the organism’s need/lack revealed


[2.3.1.1.5] Absent-Absolute:  A general term given to what is missing in existence; to the sensation of need or that absence an organism feels, becomes conscious of, as need/suffering


[2.3.1.1.5.1] In effect the sense of lacking is a by-product of (inter)activity which the conscious mind can only conceptualize as a lacking, or as something missing, absent, requiring constant vigilance and effort to be satiated


[2.3.1.1.5.2] The very nature of the absent-absolute (as that which designates a some-thing which is nowhere to be found) makes it an easily manipulated term, as that which can mean just about anything the mind can envisage and then project as a desirable outcome and/or goal


[2.3.1.1.5.2.1] The absent-absolute, due to its very nature, can easily be used to stand-in for just about any human construct, making it the foundation of all ideals and ideologies


[2.3.1.1.5.2.2] What is absent, is, in fact, all human abstractions taken as literal things, or idea(l)s; the noetic constructs are absent from the phenomenal reality


[2.3.1.1.5.2.2.1] Once the lack of an absolute idea(l) is taken as a literal starting proposition, nihilism is defined as the opinion that accepts this absence as not only actual but as necessary


[2.3.1.2] In its most rudimentary form an organism is always moving towards itself, or towards the elements outside of its willful control, which are most like it  ~ In its more sophisticated form an organism is always moving towards what it is not, but wishes to be


[2.3.1.2.1] The two conflicting movements constitute the divergence of the real from the ideal, or the genetic from the mimetic: need/suffering, requiring satiation, and projected object/objective, as a direction, orientation, tool


[2.3.1.2.1.1] Natural environments promote a movement towards the real; many human environments promote a movement towards the ideal: the former is a feminine movement, the latter a masculine movement; the feminine is thusly attracted to its opposite, the ideal, whereas the masculine to its opposite, the real


[2.3.1.2.1.1.1] This movement away and magnetism towards the opposite (chaos and order being absolute projections of both) creates the attraction/repulsion conflict within both sexes, and towards the other sex (the opposite psychological attitude)


[2.3.1.2.1.1.2] Need/Suffering, being an interpretation of past/nature, manifesting as the experience of the present (presence), cannot be avoided


[2.3.1.2.1.1.3] If the projected object/objective is detached from past/nature, it is no more than a projection of the fantastic, the unreal ~ a hyperbole with no reference point outside the mind itself


[2.3.1.2.1.1.3.1] Absolutes, when taken literally, may be so detached from any reference point outside the brain that they cannot continue to remain relevant without shared consciousness (meme) and the value standards, and ideals, this constructs


[2.3.1.2.1.1.3.2] Nihilistic memes can only remain relevant among those indoctrinated into their premises, and have no effect on all minds (including other organisms) which have not, or cannot, be integrated


[2.3.1.2.1.1.3.2.1] Such communal realities are so detached from past/nature that all manifestations of said past/nature must be dismissed, and/or ignored, and/or forgotten, for them to remain effective among those that have been indoctrinated and integrated


[2.3.1.2.2] This (re)cognition of the elements required is meant to facilitate its constant struggle to maintain itself, resisting the attrition of (inter)activity and the slow decline towards entropic decay


[2.3.1.2.3] Life feeds on life ~ Life appropriates what it requires to preserve itself and so it assimilates lower life forms, or organisms which have failed to sustain themselves within a given environment, incorporating them within what is higher, or better suited to meet the challenges of the given environment

Ά

[2.4] Life’s prime directive is self-maintenance ~ the preservation of self


[2.4.1] Need/Suffering, being the interpretation of Flux, (inter)acting with organism (self-ordering), is the first, and primary care of the organism ~ it must first, and foremost, preserve what ordering is present, to then have the choice to go further, or to grow, or to move, or to function


[2.4.2] Any excess energies produces by the organism’s insatiable need for self-preservation are directed towards growth ~ the increase of the organism’s willful domain


[2.4.2.1] We can define these excessive energies as libidinal; when not finding direction towards reproduction of self – genetic replication ~ then they might find a direction towards creativity: mimetic replication


[2.4.2.1.1] Given that the aggregate energies at the will’s disposal are limited and fluctuation from moment to moment, due to (inter)activity and the erosive effects of entropy, what libidinal energies can be directed are also limited and fluctuating


[2.4.2.2] An aspect of an organism’s willful domain is its knowledge and the understanding that comes from it


[2.4.2.2.1] Understanding: To know is to have abstracted a phenomenon into a model ~ to understand is to then be able to incorporate this mental model within a larger noetic framework where the connections of these abstractions are made lucid and where they can now direct all future (re)actions towards successful activities


[2.4.3] A part of this self-maintenance is awareness because it facilitates a more efficient expenditure of energies multiplying the actions of the organism through the multiplying effects of synergy


[2.4.3.1] Consciousness: The totality of mental processes involved in the collection, simplification, assimilation, evaluation, and processing of sensual stimuli


[2.4.3.1.1] Consciousness is, essentially, the cognition of pattern divergence and their interplay


[2.4.3.1.1.1] To be aware, conscious, is to discriminate and to discriminate is to be conscious


[2.4.3.1.1.2] Awareness is to perceive divergence; uniformity, in theory, is the negation of perception and consciousness


[2.4.3.1.2] The sensation of existence; of existing


[2.4.3.1.2.1] Collection and processing of the sensations produced by the friction of (inter)action


[2.4.3.1.2.2] Sensing mind feels the increase of entropy and the turmoil of constant (inter)activity as stimulation; the excitement of the nervous system


[2.4.3.1.2.2.1] This turmoil of a fluid environment contrasts with the desired order an organism depends upon and seeks out causing an antagonistic or a negative (re)action between perceiving mind, which serves this drive towards increasing order, and the perceived world ~ the otherness


[2.4.3.1.3] Due to the time required to gather, sensual stimuli, process it into comprehensive, using a priori methods, and to then combine it into cohesive mental models, abstractions, consciousness is characterized by a lag between its perceptions and an ongoing fluid reality


[2.4.3.1.3.1] Therefore, consciousness is always a looking back towards conceptions and abstractions that have ceased to be by the time they are formulated


[2.4.3.1.3.1.1] To compensate the mind utilizes imagination, the projection of these mental models forward by finding patterns of repetitive predictability ~ This makes imagination a fundamental mental ability


[2.4.3.1.3.1.1.1] Imagination: The mental capacity to find patterns of predictability in the Flow, projecting it into the unknown as a pre-emptive (inter)activity


[2.4.3.1.3.1.1.1.1] This evolved ability offers the mind, and the organism it serves, the advantage of efficiency and preparedness


[2.4.3.1.4] On a very basic level consciousness is the (re)cognition, or perception of elements required for self-sustenance


[2.4.3.1.4.1] The simplest method to evolve so as to facilitate this method of (re)cognition is one based on binary logic: good/bad


[2.4.3.1.4.1.1] This binary, dualistic, method is founded on a simple on/off mechanism of neurological activities


[2.4.3.1.4.1.1.1] On would reflect a flow of bioenergy through a neuron or a neuron cluster, whereas off would reflect no flow


[2.4.3.1.4.2] This desire to self-preserve the emergent unity within a threatening world is what is sensed by the evolving consciousness as need, the emotional component accompanying it would be anxiety, fear being its extreme just as suffering is the extreme sensation of need


[2.4.3.1.4.2.1] Fear: An automatic (re)action to the presence, appearance, of an unknown, alien otherness


[2.4.3.1.4.2.1.1] From anxiety/fear all other emotions develop in combination with need/suffering


[2.4.3.1.4.2.1.2] Hope is the only antidote to anxiety/fear


[2.4.3.1.4.2.1.3] Anxiety and fear is the natural relationship of an ordering mind with a disordering reality


[2.4.3.1.4.2.2] Need:  The interpretation and/or awareness of existence


[2.4.3.1.4.2.2.1] Need, and its extreme suffering, is the perception of a disparity between an ordering mind and a disordering, fragmenting, universe


[2.4.3.1.4.2.2.1.1] Absence of order, symmetry, completeness outside the human mind constitutes the absence, the conscious mind perceives as need


[2.4.3.1.4.2.2.2] Need is the interpretation of lack; the absence of an absolute state sensed as an internal want or desire


[2.4.3.1.4.2.2.3] Since the organism, life, is a manifestation of (inter)activity, the sensation of lack by the organism is a reflection of lack being an intrinsic aspect of existence


[2.4.3.1.4.2.3] Suffering:    An extreme sensation of absence when need is not fulfilled


[2.4.3.1.4.2.3.1] As need is left unsatisfied it increases in severity as the living organism grasps for a correction to the attrition its self-maintenance produces; suffering is the exponential increase in the sensation of decomposition, or the surrender of the emergent ordering, the Becoming, to the natural state of increasing disorder


[2.4.3.1.4.2.3.2] Extreme need ~ the interpretation of lack left unsatisfied


[2.4.3.1.4.2.3.3] When whatever degree of ordering which has attained some degree of consciousness experiences a reversal, from ordering towards disordering (is being swept away by change/time) the sensation increases from subtle need to increasing pain/suffering when it approaches complete disintegration into the flow of change


[2.4.3.1.4.2.3.4] Need constitutes the repression/elimination of the organism’s probability within a sea of expanding possibilities


[2.4.3.1.4.2.3.4.1] Organism interprets any restriction/elimination of its projected probability as pain/suffering


[2.4.3.1.5] Consciousness has evolved out of a basic binary method: on/off


[2.4.3.1.5.1] Being a product of a fluid environment consciousness itself is a process of flowing


[2.4.3.1.5.2] The on/off represents flow/no-flow. From this all forms of duality arise


[2.4.3.1.5.2.1] This conscious flow through the brain is an energy pulse – a faster rate of (inter)action, (inter)acting with a slower rate of (inter)action – cascading through the neural networks, via the path-of-least-resistance resulting in what we call mind


[2.4.3.1.5.2.1.1] Mind: The sum of all brain activities controlled and amalgamated into a continuous stream of thoughts and images and sensations we call consciousness


[2.4.3.1.5.2.1.1.1] Mind/Body divide begins in the nervous system, where the Will is founded


[2.4.3.1.5.2.1.1.2] Because the conscious mind discovers self as another phenomenon, another appearance, it begins to associate self (ego) with the noumenon, and phenomenon with the primitive, the base, the “to be overcome” ~ it noetically negates self, when even the noumenon is the product of the phenomenon (physical) brain


[2.4.3.1.5.2.1.1.3] The disassociation of mind, from body, is how nihilism begins to take root and to expand as a comforting, escape from an uncertain, increasingly disturbing, world


[2.4.3.1.6] In later stages of development consciousness, this mental processing, acquires some proven methods of assimilation and abstraction; a priori concepts


[2.4.3.1.6.1] Abstraction: The incorporation of sensual data into a singular mental model by using established (evolved via trial and error) methodologies and necessary (pre)conceptions


[2.4.3.1.6.1.1] Simplification and Generalization of reality evolved to facilitate survival by offering the advantage of efficiency (synergy) to the emergent unity utilizing its methods


[2.4.3.1.6.1.1.1] Simplification of the increasing complexity occurs when superfluous datum (that which cannot be incorporated within a mental model) and datum the sense organs cannot find patters within are excluded and discarded


[2.4.3.1.6.1.1.1.1] Excess sense data becomes fodder for the brain’s unconscious (subconscious, intuitive, instinctual) (re)interpretations ~ it attempts to analyze them by using known aspects of reality (experience), eventually discarding, and/or processing them through dreams


[2.4.3.1.7] From the starting processing of good/bad different parts of the brain develop different specialized roles, some to process, others to analyze, still others to compare and to distinguish similar from different or to supervise the other processes ~ agencies


[2.4.3.1.7.1] Mental Agencies: The aggregate of processes which act as directors of an organism’s energies or as directors of other agencies acting as directors


[2.4.3.1.7.1.1] The multiplicity of regulating and directing agencies can result in a self-referential loop, if it were not for the disturbing and disrupting effects of sensual input


[2.4.3.1.7.1.2] Will is the most visceral, primal, expression of a neurological agency, requiring no consciousness and no control: automated neurological focus


[2.4.3.1.7.1.3] Self-Consciousness: Just as with consciousness, self-consciousness is a part of existence, in this case the mind and/or consciousness


[2.4.3.1.7.1.3.1] A mental agency perceiving consciousness from the vantage point of a somewhat detached observer


[2.4.3.1.7.1.3.2] Consciousness detaches itself from (inter)activity to become aware of it, and so self-consciousness detaches itself from consciousness to become aware of it ~ this detachment creates the sensation of separate, and/or otherness


[2.4.3.1.7.1.3.3] Self-Knowledge proceeds from a state of near-absolute ignorance, towards a state of near-absolute gnosis


[2.4.3.1.7.1.3.4] If the motive is to completely detach mind from body, or the agency one identifies with “I” from the brain that is manifesting it, and/or from all other agencies, then this desire expresses a need to escape noetically from the phenomenal world: nihilism


[2.4.3.1.7.1.3.4.1] This desire to detach mind from body, is expressed by the desire to detach noumenon (word), from phenomenon (appearance) ~ it is the core of the nihilistic mindset


[2.4.3.1.7.1.3.4.2] Once detached from reality, or from any reference to the phenomenon, outside manmade constructs, the mind finds “freedom” to indulge in fantastic projections


[2.4.3.1.7.1.3.5] Self-Knowledge finds cohesiveness (health) when it harmonizes the apparent manifestation of past/nature, with its projection of objects/objectives, via its appreciation, of self, in the present, as appearance


[2.4.3.1.7.1.3.5.1] Self (ego) can, therefore, be understood as a prism, a conduit, through which the past/nature reflects its aggregate energies (light) towards future


[2.4.3.1.7.1.3.5.2] If past/nature is misaligned with the subsequent projection, then the individual is in conflict with self, or is not in-tune with self

Encapsulations
In my world-view the near-absolute singularity, currently called The Big Bang represents a near-1-dimensional world.
Here time is a measurement of change and change is experienced by linear juxtapositions of mental abstractions (mental models that simplify/generalize fluidity into static forms: things, objects/objectives).
Space represents the projection of possibility by the conscious mind experiencing the Flux in a linear way which can be called Fluidity. The change in name is used just so as to differentiate it from the multi-dimensional possibility the Flux implies but can never be experienced directly.
Flow is a three-dimensional projection of possibilities which is part of the Flux, which is a multiple-dimensional projection of possibilities; because the mind cannot project in anything above three dimensions; these extra dimensions remain theoretical.
Therefore the human mind can only project possibilities within a three-dimensional plane... which we call the world.
From this near-1 point of an approach to a singular state, an absolute state, the world expands... in other words possibilities multiply exponentially and in inverse proportion to the presence of order, perceived as matter… which is the remnant of this near-absolute-point of oneness.
Oneness, therefore, is the mental projection of the completion of the singularity: a static point where no activity is present, as it is the attainment of all possibilities simultaneously.
It can also be understood as infinite space/time... or the inversion of the Big Bang.
Matter is experienced as decreasing in space/time, as energy increases, both representing different rates of fluidity in relation to the conscious, perceiving, linear mind.
As possibilities (space) increase, or are multiplied, the tendency is towards absolute possibilities in other words a uniformity of probabilities, if by probability we mean a measurement or an evaluation of what is more or less possible.
This evaluation is based on past experience: also called experience or when it is codified and can be shared and adopted it is called knowledge.
Knowledge is second-hand experience.
As one approaches absolute possibility, the infinite space/time continuum, the possibility of a Big Bang becomes increasingly possible – therefore the possibility that the world will continue or repeat increases.
We are tending towards a uniformity of probability... which we call chaos.

The past, upon which we use to extrapolate probabilities, is a more ordered state and so as possibilities increase, tending towards the absolute infinite of chaos, the relevance of this past experience/knowledge decreases making the projection difficult. This difficulty the brain interprets as void or darkness... and we call it entropy or chaos.
The possibilities become so many, the (inter)actions so vast, that the mind is incapable of finding patterns and project possibilities, nor is it able to formulate probabilities which would lead to understanding.
Man compensates by creating technologies so as to bridge the gap between a reality expanding towards the near-absolute chaotic and his own evolved, and slower to change, abilities to make sense of it all.
So, as possibilities increase phenomena increasingly are experienced as energies... and matter increasingly becomes rare.
We can think of matter as a resisting pocket in space/time.
As resistance to entropy decreases the expansion of the universe speeds-up, or tends towards faster (inter)actions which we call energies.
These (inter)actions produce friction, for to interact is to act upon another or an otherness in a manner where both are affected; this friction between congruent flows cause this splintering of dimensions which we perceive as space expanding and entropy increasing.
Another way to put it is that these (inter)actions are an exchange of energies or rates of Flux, the rates adjusted towards the lower.    
This levels-off the speed of expansion into a uniform speed, where no diversity of activities can be perceived.
Uniformity implies an absence or a lower state of (inter)activity… we can also call this “cooling”.
The mind only perceives what exhibits a divergence from an otherness, the conscious mind is a discrimination tool, meant to facilitate survival; the brain is a discriminating tool which perceives (inter)actions between divergent processes exhibiting different rates of fluidity (Flow)… finding in these (inter)actions patterns of repetitive predictability to project forth towards the unknown.
Therefore, as uniformity increases, less and less divergence is produced and so less and less is perceived.
Furthermore, the mind has nothing to juxtapose and so to become conscious of; if it could peer into the infinitesimal – that is, if it could expand its perceptual-event-horizon – it would perceive such complexity of possibilities that it would be unable to process the information and find patterns in it.
Uniformity, furthermore, means an absence of interaction as a congruence of Flow/Flux is established.
The Buddhists call this emptiness.
In conclusion this expansion of the universe is but an increase in possibilities and so it would also be accompanied by a multiplication of dimensions.
The near-absolute state of a singularity, being the one-dimensional space/time, slowly but increasing in speed multiplying into more and more dimensions and tending towards infinite dimensions.


Ά


Matter can be considered the remnant of the approach towards the near-absolute state: the singularity of the Big Bang.
Energy can be considered the approach towards the near-absolute state of absolute disorder, also known as entropy or chaos.


Ά


One and nil are the same singular point in space/time approached from a different direction; perceived from a different perspective.


Ά


A theoretical Black Hole could be the emergence of near-singularities – new universes – made possible due to the expanding possibilities of space/time.
If we accept the premises that space is possibility and that the expansion of space represents the expansion of possibilities – probability being a limit, derived from an understanding of the past (a projected pattern) – then it follows that as space expands the possibility of Big Bangs recurring, along the way, also increase.

Black Holes are near-absolute points, almost singularities; another way of expressing the concept of The Big Bang. They would be the Big Bang perceived from the other side of its almost complete absoluteness.  


Ά


The near-point of absolute order (singularity) is the state of one-dimensional space-time.
At this point space, being possibility, is nearly singular and so, in essence there is almost no possibility except one. Since the state is not complete the singular is never completed, making existence possible.
An increase in possibility (space) would be a fragmentation of the nearly absolute towards multi-dimensional space-time.  


Ά


Probability is based on the limitation of possibility; it is another way of evaluating order.
Probability is what the mind calls what displays predictable patterns, making it a higher form of ordering in comparison to the increasing chaos.  
Therefore, matter can be considered a state of more order (resisting order) in relation to the background of increasing entropy.  
Its activity can be measured, evaluated, perceived with more precision because its possibilities are restricted.


Ά


As increasing randomness, chaos, increases, speeding up, towards the near-absolute, the tipping point is surpassed, making order proportionally lesser, in time.
Life emerges, at some point, after this ambiguous point, as it is a resistance to randomness/entropy/chaos.


Ά

The emergent unity organism is not separate from the environment it merges within.
It emerges within it as part of the possibility, it then reflects; the continuum, from near absolute order towards near absolute chaos.
The organism is the realization of a possibility – a possibility made probable, and then projecting its own possibilities, in relation to otherness (environment).
 
Space/Time is, for the organism an interpretation of possibilities, with variations defined as more or less probable.
Otherness is a means by which these possibilities are raised into probabilities.
For example: the contained energies of the libido, experience the sensation of release, when they are projected as potential probabilities.
The organism collects, appropriates, energies form other organizing unities, and then directs them towards its own possibilities, increasing them into probabilities.  


Ά


For an organism its past is a reflection upon what manifested as its presence.
It, as an organism, represents the totality of experiences, (inter)actions, that produced it; it is the continuance of these of these experiences, as these have been passed onto it in the form of a simplified/generalized code, which it has no conscious recollection of, but which it adheres to as part of its essence.
The organism’s continues to (inter)act, adding or subtracting to these inherited potentials, as these relate to the changing environment, or the fluctuating forces of otherness it is forced to (inter)act within.
The otherness, conscious or not, represents a limit to its own inherited probability – one which it can then overcome, go through, use to expand its own probability, or surrender to, succumb, be used for an other’s purpose.  
Cooperation emerges as a compromise; a congruence of mutual utility, where this congruence is established through a mutually interdependence.
The otherness, in this case another emergent unity, another organism, becomes a means of overcoming a limit in one’s own potential, and, in turn, submits to the otherness as its means of overcoming tis limits.
Limit describes a boundary of possibility, of inherited potential.
No consciousness of this in required because the process is naturally selected and emerges as a dominant one due to its effectiveness.
The organism simply responds to this inherited practice, encoded in tis genes, by adhering to its impulse.
One attains consciousness after-the-fact, as a looking back, looking upon one’s self – self-consciousness. This, alter to develop, self-awareness, may even inhibit the process.
Pleasure can be understood, in this context, as a sudden release of stored energies, controlled repressed possibilities. This release of possibility turns them into potential probabilities, which may or may not attain fruition.
The release turns the stored energies into (inter)active ones.

Sexual impulse, or any hedonistic object/objective, is the objectification of the event, rather than of the goal the event opens up as a probability.
It is a reduction of one’s perceptual-event-horizon – a reduction where the mind, if it is human, is reduced to the level of a basic animal, or a simpler organism.
Because the organism begins as conscious of otherness, but unconscious of self, it perceives otherness as a means to an end, where it does not understand the end as anything beyond the means.  
Under the influence of instinct (programmed reactivity), and/or impulse (unconscious towards), it simply (re)acts to stimuli (perception of otherness – phenomenon) in a manner which increases genetic probability, and decreases the infinite possibility of the existent.
It has inherited this predisposition towards the retention and enhancement of its continuum, its probability.
The otherness either promises a continuance, an expansion of the probability’s possibilities, where the continuum is not severed, or it promises an end (threat).  
This is the first conception an organism must overcome, the (threat) aspect of otherness, so as to enable the end, the other, to be turned into a means.
This is the overcoming of the fight/flight mechanism.  
But, in the Being this impulse to flee or fight, cannot be understood away… it cannot be reasoned with.
The mechanism of inebriation of sexual madness, the lust/love chemistry evolves to deal with the pre-existing impulse.
Self-consciousness later emerges to make sense of it, or to romanticize it, or to idealize it, so as to justify it within the premises already developed, the sociological, economic structures, and to enhance the effects – because understanding does not necessarily promote an impulse, it mostly inhibits its free, intuitive, instinctual, careless, expression.      


Ά


What can be said about the sexual impulse can be said about any impulse that evolves as a reaction to stimuli and which are understood after-the-fact, by a self-consciousness which evolves after consciousness has already been established – as a means of understanding this conscious, (re)action to otherness, facilitating a more efficient, and so a more effective, application of energies.
As a side-effect self-consciousness inhibits blind reactivity, impulsive behavior, and may result in a reduction of probabilities, when in pursuit of the increase in a more precise focused probability.
In other words, while intuitive, instinctual, behavior still relies on chance, in acting in ways that increase probability within a broader span of available possibilities, self-consciousness, or more sophisticated consciousness, streamlines this process further, reducing the broadness by pinpointing the object/objective more precisely.
Consciousness is a streamlining of (inter)activity where chance is reduced by awareness.  
Self-consciousness further restricts this participation of chance by becoming even more precise.
But chance is another term for Flux. In effect the mind increases its probabilities, by decreasing all other possibilities, so as to remain true to the continuum it is a manifestation of.
As one increases in order this entails a greater risk, within an environment of increasing randomness, and so of increasing (inter)activity.
The question becomes: Does one compromise, sacrificing what has been already attained so as to retain the possibility of maintaining a potential, any potential, or does one remain committed to what has been already attained, refusing to revert, to sacrifice, placing the continuum’s fate, the one he is a manifestation of, in the hands of chance?

The organism’s conception of self will always remain ambiguous and incomplete for two reasons:

1- The part of the brain awakening to the rest of the brain’s processes, this agency, no matter how small it is, in relation to the entirety, is always present.
It cannot include itself in the awareness it is producing, other than in reflection.
Just as consciousness is a part of the organism, the brain, focused upon world, so is the part of the brain focused upon the brain’s awareness of world but only a part which can never perceive itself perceiving itself.  

2- The organism’s emergence is always falling back, because the (inter)activity of Flux is continuous, distancing its presence from its emergence.
To know itself, to identify itself through reflection, and to compensate for this falling away, distancing from the moment of emergence, the organism seeks out patterns in its own behaviour, its own Becoming, to give itself order, to give itself Being.
The organism is continuously re-discovering itself in hindsight, due to the lag between its presence (appearance) and its past (nature), which the period of processing, awareness requires, imposes upon it.
To facilitate this pattern (re)cognition the organism brackets its field of exploration between two ambiguous points in space-time, ending in its presence, and beginning as far back as the organism can go, without losing focus – usually back to its birth.
The more sophisticated a brain/mind is, the further back it can push the starting bracket, and the further ahead it can project the ending bracket, using the patterns it discovers, in between them, to presume this future point in space-time, and the more sophisticated the brain/mind is, the more detailed patterns it can un-cover to compensate for the gaps in knowledge – particularly first-hand experiences.

Life develops a primitive form of consciousness not to evaluate self, but to evaluate otherness so as to direct self.
The self need not be known, nor valued, for action is self expressing itself, and it cannot be anything other.
The self need not be aware of itself to act in preserving self.
It need not evaluate itself in relation to otherness, to self-maintain.
The process is genetic, automatic; a reaction to otherness, evolved through trial and error.
Only otherness needs to be dealt with, and to deal with it the emerging consciousness evaluates, discriminates.

Self evaluates otherness by juxtaposing, in relation to its own need – the expression of self-maintenance as the by-product of otherness, entropy, flux, upon its self-ordering.
The evolutionary utility of consciousness is in this efficiency of discriminating between one otherness from another, in relation to this pulling upon it by the totality of (inter)acting otherness, also called Flux; finding patterns to distinguish divergence, offering the advantage of directing its energies (activities) more effectively.
This direction determines the nature of its future (inter)actions, as a past manifesting towards an object/objective.
The repetition of successful behaviors (interactions) establishes them as effective.
Value is then presented in relation to the organism’s needs.
No awareness of self, other than the awareness of need manifesting as action, has to be present; the successful processes become automatic, innate, spontaneous.
The need produces the action towards, as an expression of self as lacking.
Consciousness emerges always outwardly focused.
It perceives self intuitively, viscerally, and the other consciously.
The senses perceive other, because that is why they evolved.
Their survival role is to deal with otherness, as this relates to need.
Later it turns inward, only if it is successful in preserving self for a sufficient amount of time to produce excess energies.
The first evaluation is in relation to this self-maintenance, which preserves the possibility of evaluating, and of discriminating.
There is no choice unless first, the organism deals with its own needs.  
From the “I am what I am not” we proceed to the next stage of consciousness which is the “I am what I wish to become”– a projection of an idea(l), self, in the yet to be.
This becomes the religious projection of a God, in the yet to be beyond.
Value is now a juxtaposition of this idea(l), desirable self, with that of another, less desirable self, and/or with that of self which is far from ideal, the real self, relating to the projected ideal self.  

You cannot will self, before there is a self to will; you cannot value self, before there is a self to value; you cannot will life before there is life which is willing.
There is no idea(l) before there is a mind present to idealize; there is no object/objective unless there is a mind, within a world, to project an object/objective.
Ordering precedes consciousness, and consciousness precedes self-consciousness.
There is a temporal succession which exposes evolutionary, adaptive, stages of development, from the unsophisticated towards the more sophisticated; from the past towards the future; from more order towards less order, which is chaos.

Diversion precedes the perception of similarity – similarity presupposes a difference.
If there is no difference present there is no need to perceive similarity; if there is no multiplicity there is no need for the idea of oneness, and wholeness; if there is no displeasure there is no need for the pursuit of pleasure; if there is no absence there is no need to pursue and to move towards and to project.  
Entropy precedes ordering.
Ordering is a (re)action, to entropy; an opposite movement.
This is also self-maintenance: to sustain the order present, against the disordering.
The will towards life presupposes a predominantly lifeless reality.
The will towards power implies powerlessness, as a prerequisite.
The will towards pleasure presupposes displeasure.
The will towards any projected idea(l), as object/objective, presupposes its absence, as an absolute state.
Any willing, or movement towards, implies an absence of what is willed and approached.
I do not wish for what I already have, or what I am not at risk of losing.  

Subjectivity presupposes the objective – the world made into object/objective.
Objectivity is, for the subjective interpreting mind, a tautology, with world.
The world is, for the subjective consciousness, an object/objective.
The world is the dynamic, fluctuating (Flux).
The objective/object is world made into a static thing in relation to a subjective consciousness, continuously striving towards the attainment of the absolute merger with the world – becoming towards Being.  
The subjective presupposes the objective, world; the world does not presuppose a subject to interpret it.
The world does not require a consciousness to interpret it, for it to exist or to continue existing; a consciousness, which experiences the world subjectively, does require a world to pre-exist its emergence within it.  
World exists even if there is no consciousness to perceive it.
In fact, without this pre-existence there is no possibility for the subjective to emerge in the world, as part of its fluctuating possibilities.
The world, being in Flux, ever-changing, means that the idea(l) of an absolute convergence of subjective and objective will result in Godliness (one, singular, being), or an END – the becoming arrested in an all-encompassing Being, within which the objective/subjective converges in a singularity.
The world made into a singular thing implies an exit from its processes.
The consciousness projects itself "outside" time/space (reality, world) to then define world as thing (one, whole).

The world is receding, from the interpreting, subjective, mind; falling away as it is approached; it has changed the instant it is interpreted.
This is the existential distance between observers and observed, retaining the world as the eternally mysterious.
The convergence is never finalized.
The distance (real/ideal) is decreased but not covered.
It can never be finalized.
So, the Moderns and the nihilists (same thing in our time), attempt to escape its premises using words – words being noetic devices; human artifices, symbols, tools.
The positivity of a world void of absolutes, but full of possibilities, turned into a “negative”; a world void of corrective, comforting, human artifices.
To speak against humanity, these days, means you speak against the world itself.
To support human contrivances is to be world-affirming… as in human world.
This is the Nihilistic inversion.  
To compensate, for this distance between ideal and real, the interpreting, subjective, mind forages for patterns to project… seeking a final solution in this projection.
The method is imagination.
Imagination detached from reality is fantasy, or delusion.
Imagination attached to reality takes the patterns found, in the past/nature, and uses them to pre-empt and prepare and adapt.
Because the world is fluctuating, changing, consciousness must adapt to its changes, or suffer the consequences.
The world, made into an object/objective, for the subjective mind, does not change to accommodate the subjective interpretation of it; it is the subjective interpretation that must adapt to its fluctuating dynamics, or perish because it is incapable of doing so (natural selection on a metaphysical level).
The only way a subjective, interpreting, mind can alter reality is to first understand it – to understand means to perceive pattern in its fluctuating dynamics which hold true for long periods of time; long enough to make them useful.
You cannot forage for patterns of that quality when you deny the past/nature as being present.
This is what the subjective mind values.
It is the basis of its value system, even if it is unaware of it; if this value system is interested in remaining attached to reality, rather than in detaching from it.
It need not be aware of this… it is automatic and intuitive – it is primal.
The only way to avoid these dire, for it, consequences, and still remain detached, is if an intervening will protect the subjective interpretation from the repercussions of its own error.
Then all interpretations, perspectives are equally valuable, if they gratify some need in the individual – solipsism.
This is called sheltering and results in Modernity (feminization, nihilism as an internal control mechanism, domestication, institutionalization, compartmentalization and so on).


Ά

The objective is to the subjective as the phenomenon is to the noumenon.
One is dynamic and continuously altering, being a term describing (inter)activity, which is never ending.
The other is a static representation, continuously being updated and connected in a linear fashion, but remaining a generalization/simplification.
To the subjective mind the objective world is continuously falling away (infinite), and can only be comprehended by enclosing it within a noetic construct (finite).
The subjective mind is continuously constructing the idea(l) (abstraction) to deal with the real (dynamic).
Nihilism emerges as the idea(l) which contradicts the perceived real – it is an idea(l) which rather than attempting to cover the distance between noumenon and phenomenon, and be a mechanism for adapting, becomes a noetic projection either hoping for an end to the entire process, or constructing abstractions that oppose the real, or invert it so as to create the concept of a hidden, more real, reality.
The facility with which the mind can take its own noetic devices literally, and imagine an inversion of a real world, that cannot be dealt with so easily, makes this practice seductive, and those who can offer it to those with a lesser talent for it become saviours, or priests representing salvation.
The phenomenon, being the sum of all patterns perceived and encompassed in a simplified/generalized thingness, may be so problematic to the noumenon that it can only escape its implications by being reduced to an illusion, or by being converted to its opposite.
The conversion occurs during the process of simplification/generalization, and afterwards when it is selectively incorporated into an idea(l) which is then projected into the “beyond” or the future as the absolute negation of all that is perceived or as the fulfillment of all which is absent in the experienced.
The “positive” nihilistic idea(l) gathers in numbers what it cannot produce in qualities. It is dependent on fate, and belief, because outside the mind it has no reference point.
Language is its only foundation, and words the metaphorical bricks it uses to build its sheltering temples, gathering within its own constructs the numbers required to remain viable.

Becoming does not will itself.
It only willfully directs itself, sometimes towards an unattainable final end, a completion in Being.
Being, as the noetic abstraction of the phenomenon of Becoming, can take on any form implying the same complete, final, idea(l) (object/objective), which the brain projects as a desirable goal.
Being can take on many forms because it is dependent upon the context within which the mind constructs it as a desirable final end, and an idea(l) (object/objective).
Becoming has no choice in its Becoming other than the direction it will take within the tumult of fluctuating (inter)actions, and, then, only minimally, and in depending on its aggregate energies and their focus.
The dynamic, fluctuating world, of (inter)activity, forces the organism to (re)act, accordingly, or to be swept away.
The mind’s choices are determined by its capacity to perceive and process patterns that affect its (re)activity towards a continuously fluctuating reality, but also by its ability to control and focus the aggregate processes, energies, which are part of its self-organizing Becoming.

As the distance between the present and the near-absolute order (Big Bang) increases the possibilities of life emerging, as an echo of this probability that restricts possibility.


Ά


Energy = (inter)activity exhibiting a pattern (order, symmetry).
Matter being the slow, in relation to the observer, form of energy.
Energy, therefore, constitutes a potential; a yet to be determined possibility/probability.
Patterned energy offered a restriction to possibility, therefore, increasing the evaluation of probability.
Energy displaying an erratic (inter)activity, is too unpredictable to be processed and evaluated as probability and so it is considered chaotic.
Since only patterns can be perceived by the pattern-recognizing brain, the only (inter)actions an organic brain can perceive are ones that display such a pattern, though it may be ephemeral and/or erratic.
Therefore, for the ordering brain all is ordered to a degree.
It is immersed in patterns of varying quality and complexity.
Chaos cannot be comprehended or perceived, except when in its chaotic (inter)activity it momentarily displays a pattern, seeming to fall in and out of existence to a mind that cannot process true chaos.
For such a mind chaos is but a complexity of order, which is too intricate to perceive a unifying pattern within.
But it is presumed to be present.

Chaos = randomness, as the absence of a consistent, repetitive, predictable (inter)activity.
This repetition is dependent upon the observing mind's acuity, its metabolic rates determining its processing speeds and its sensual sensitivity, and the organism's lifespan.
(Inter)activity increases complexity and randomness.
As patterns (inter)act their aggregate energies conflict, detaching a portion of energy from each (inter)acting pattern and reducing it to a lower, intermediate, level, and also splintering off energies which display no consistent, repetitive, predictable pattern.
The (inter)action of pattern continuously increases complexity, and randomness, both of which fall outside the organic mind's ability to perceive.
With the development of techniques/technologies the organic mind can increase its sensual acuity, and processing speed, expanding its perceptual-event-horizon by finding patterns in what was too complex to perceive, sensually, and to process mentally.
The random, true chaos, remains beyond this technique's/technology's domain, because techniques/technologies are merely extensions of organic methods, and so they only push back the limits that burden the organism's evolved sensual and mental potentials.


Ά


Every phenomenon is imbued with possibility, for an organism dependent on probability, and on retaining its order as a restriction of possibility and a retention of desirable probability.
In a world of Flux, of constant (inter)activity, producing complexity and chaos, the perception and assimilation of order is a challenge.
Consciousness evolves to meet this challenge.
Judgment is the process of discriminating probability within possibility as this refers to the organism's needs.
Need is this retention of organic order; a continuous struggle to reduce possibility and to increase probability (order), within the organism's domain... its willful intervention upon (inter)activity – encompassed, first, by its organic limits, its skin, exoskeleton, and then projected noetically, using the imagination in time/space.
The noumenon evolved to project in time space, so as to gain an advantage.
It accumulates patterns (experiences, energies... etc.) and then combines them by reducing them to their lowest-common-denominator (digestion, understanding) so as to then direct them in accordance with its needs.
The noetic projection of accumulated experiences (memory, knowledge), and its quality, is dependent on the digestive ability of the organism – noetically this digestion takes on the form of understanding.  
Understanding is the reduction of knowledge, data, experiences, to their lowest-common-denominator so as to find there a shared pattern.
This can then be projected in time/space, as possibility that is more or else probable, based on hindsight or precedent.
A mind disconnected from past will be unable to project as successfully, or may fall into the error or fantasy, where the projection is so unreal, based on no precedent and no past, as to make it ridiculous, or highly improbable.
The reduction of experience (data, knowledge) to a lowest-common-denominator, is dependent on the organism's sensual acuity and its mental sophistication (intelligence as a measure of pattern recognition).
The degree of detail represents the degree of reduction, increasing the projection's potential success, but also increasing the risks associated with such projections because the Flux of (inter)activity continues altering the variables to a greater or smaller degree.
The more accurate perception of a pattern will make this pattern less susceptible to time/space fluctuations, and so it will decide the accuracy of the projection.
Nevertheless, the conscious mind must continuously validate its projections, modifying them, if need be, so as to adjust them to the continuing fluctuations.

Consciousness is a continuous juxtaposition of abstractions, validating and adjusting projections to the Flux.
Judgment is the application of this continuous juxtaposition, which on a rudimentary level is experienced as consciousness of otherness, or of what appears – phenomenon.
The evaluation of these phenomenon always uses the organic standard of need – as this need is determined by organ hierarchies which manifest as psychology/personality.
Evaluation is therefore a measure of the other's potential, its probability, in reference to the observing mind's the organism's needs.
This determines its value judgments, its tastes, and its perception of utility.    


Ά


Words/Numbers are symbols referring back to abstractions which are the reduction of patterns to a lowest-common-denominator.
This lowest-common-denominator has a upper and lower level, within a population sharing in a genetic past, but the individual's particular reduction to this lowest pattern is determined by its particular genetic inheritance (intelligence is the word used).
These symbols reflect the mind's representation of patterns, and expose the mind's internal geometry, or the form abstractions take, as these have been determined, through evolution, as a priori methodologies.
The utility of these methods is proven by their successful application, over centuries of survival within fluctuating environments.
They become self-evident starting proposition for the organism they have evolved within, and are the standard for said organism.
This noetic geometry, represented by form, color, tone, texture, with time being the continuous adjustment to fluctuation, is the foundation of Jung's "collective unconscious" and his synchronicity inter-relations of abstractions (shared symbolism pointing to a collective logic).
Logic = the reaffirmation of experience, knowledge, expressed as a self-affirming consistency.
For example... 1+1=2 is logical once the a priori geometric abstraction of a one, a singularity, a point in space/time is taken for granted, as a self-evident starting proposition.

All laws of logic are the reaffirmation of noetic geometry – and a test of the abstraction's adherence to a priori methodology.
A validation of the particular abstractions harmony with all other abstractions so that no incongruity is present.
In most cases the mind deals with incongruity through the process of compartmentalization.
Unable to harmonize one abstraction with the other the less sophisticated mind retains both by separating them into different contexts – this is the start of schizophrenia, and the bicameral mind might be the outcome, or the first stage of emergent self-consciousness as it confronts consciousness.
It is self-evident because the organism cannot think outside the methods it depends upon to become conscious of otherness (phenomenon) – it is the starting noetic abstraction or the reduction of sensual input (stimuli) to their lowest-common-denominator then placed within the three-dimensional geometry of the noetic – with the fourth dimension representing the adjustment previously mentioned.
This is what I refer to as interpretation.
The mind translates the stimuli into a form it can process in accordance with evolved methodologies, and then places them within its conceptual geometry, its cohesive mental models, that vary in complexity in accordance to the particular mind's intelligence.

This mental-model is also called abstraction.
Words, and numbers are the representations of this abstraction.
The organism perceives all within this inherited framework.
It calls this its intuition.
The details incorporated within these abstractions reflect the perimeter of its perceptual-event-horizon.
As such, the organism exists, noetically, within a world of abstractions, continuously adjusted to fluctuations (change) which challenge these abstractions.
This is the source of the organism's existential angst – stress on a noetic level, corresponding to the stress on a physical level, which it perceives as need.


Ά


Subjective = noumenon (interpretation)
Objective = phenomenon (interaction)

The need to reduce existence to perspective, and dismiss a standard of evaluating quality external from personal needs, is the reduction of the world to a word (code), an abstraction, an idea(l), coincidentally one that feeds particular hungers, and comforts particular anxieties/fears.
The emotional appeal is indisputable, for it uses emotion as its decisive justification.
Its intellectual appeal is also indisputable because it uses dualism to distinguish the desirable from the undesirable, and then chooses the noumenon, which is desirable, due to its malleability and its potential willful controllability; it is base (primal), and the foundation of consciousness, so it comes easy to the mind, demanding no artistry, or any particular talents – it is intuitive and requires no more than self-referential consistency, and the pleasure reward to validate it.
The choice of the interpretation, the symbol, over the interpreted, the symbolized, is easily in favor of the former since there the Will has an immediate, and direct effect, control, whereas the latter is fraught with unpredictability, uncertainty, and the demand for constant energies, continuously adapted/adjusted, to the fluctuating otherness.  


Ά


Once the noumenon (interpretation, subjective) is made into the real, rather than the representation of it, and the phenomenon is dismissed as illusion, the interpretation becomes a matter of communal agreement: humanism.
The agreement is based on the “right” to believe whatever you want (all interpretations are equally valuable) if the allowance is extended to all belonging to the human type, which is now detached from its past/nature, and de-sexualized.
The irrelevance of the phenomenon, and sheltering, makes all perspectives equally valid and relevant, since the risks, costs are controlled by an intervening entity (institution) that ensures internal order, and provides a defense against an external, indifferent to the internal order,  (re)action.


Ά


Change is inevitable, making all defense of it either hypocritical, an expression of dissatisfaction with the present (death-drive), a naïve projection governed by a misguided hope that things will become better in contradiction to the determining past, or a feeble attempt to display constitution.
In fact order is the true innovative construct, as it confronts and contradicts the Flux, imposing a willful intervention that may be more, or less, attached to past/nature, and so more or less realistic and relevant.



Ά


Absolute thinking is the next phase in intellectual regression, after Dualism and Binary Logic.
The mind proceeds, by receding, from the either/or, represented by the noumenon/phenomenon, given a 1/0 value symbol, towards the preference for the one, most often the noumenon, now posited as an all-encompassing, representative, idea(l): a singularity.
When the choice is for the phenomenal then hedonism is the singularity preferred; the mind immerses itself in the sensation of satisfying need, the negative effect of pleasure, to escape the need/suffering which is the experience of existing.
This reflects a diminishment of perception, where the multiplicity of existence is reduced to a noetic lowest-common-denominator which has no reference to the experienced when it is pure nullification of (inter)activity (Nihilistic), and so it is presumed as an underlying, hidden, or an overarching, beyond.
From there, the next opposing phase of intellectual development, and/or maturity, if no dysgenics take intervene, will proceed towards the artistic perception of reality as counter-intuitive, where intuition is understood as no more than a representing, interpreting, method trying to make sense of the fluctuating, by reducing it to a lowest-common-denominator.
This phase has, in fact, been attained more than once in the course of human history, and then lost, due to the natural cycles of ascent and descent of culture, and nature, in general.
The highest, more sophisticated, is more vulnerable to fluctuations, than the more base and unsophisticated; the more intricate is fragile in comparison to the simple.
The closer to the perfect, the absolute, you come the more difficult it is to remain there, and to proceed further.  
The reduction of world into a singular thing represents the ultimate degradation/retardation of human intelligence – a symptom of nihilistic degeneration: a by-product of increasing, unregulated, population explosions, and diminishing, strictly regulated, resources.    


Ά


Infinite regression indicates this absence of an absolute, and this constant approach towards the state of absolute randomness.
Not only the infinite divisibility of the singular, but its endless ascent towards the infinite highest number of multiplicity, without ever attaining it, express the movement away and towards the absolute, where the observer has set himself as the pivotal point, the one.
Without the discovery of an indivisible atom, particle, thing, the mind reverts back towards the ambiguously sustained noumenon: the theory, the abstraction with no reference point.
The search for the god-particle, the beginning of existence, can be included in the category of mythological constructs still burdening human understanding.
It is a fool’s errand, since it has presupposed the existence of what has never been perceived, and in fact, contradicts everything that has been perceived.  
It is more than a remnant of human infantile thinking, it is a regression back to a faith-based belief where the metaphor, the myth, is taken literally, rather than figuratively.  


Ά


The ordering conscious mind relates to the (inter)activity as a some-thing receding, falling away from his resisting, static, noetic position of observer.
The objective is forever divisible precisely because it is not static but dynamic, this fluctuation, produced by (inter)activity, interpreted sensually as color, form, taste, smell, and so on.
Consciousness as a process demanding time to gather, process, interpret, the apparent is always a step-behind, it is always dealing with what was, and never with what is, or what will be.
imagination being an advantage because it project, in time/space, suing precedent, the past, what was, so as to pre-empt “what is” (present, presence), and prepare for “what will be” (future) – this is its genetic advantage, because it results in efficiency and the force of focus, where an organism with a lower aggregate energy can overpower an organism with a higher aggregate energy.
This is the supremacy of intelligence, and imagination – not fantasy, but imagination.
This lag in perception, compensated as was noted, by the mind's potential to project, is why the subjective is always at a distance from the real, or the ongoing (inter)activity – and experienced as a falling away, which cannot be symbolized as an absolute – infinite regress.
This ability of the mind to project can result in exaggeration, hyperbole, the supernatural, and then the anti-natural, the contradictory, the nihilistic.


Ά


Life begins as patterns (inter)acting, but instead of this (inter)action having a negative effect, because of how the patterns (inter)act the effect is positive: one pattern supporting the other more than it is fragmenting it, so that instead of attrition, resulting in a net loss of the pattern's strength, energies fragmenting off of it, we begin to have assimilation, a net gain, and growth.
Of course this "positive" relationship is still negatively affected by other patterns, giving it a duration, a lifespan.
To this "positive" relationship other patterns may relate to in a positive way – perhaps not to the other patterns on their own, but to the two in unison.  


Ά


Air and water do not (inter)act according to a godly plan, some grand scheme.
They are patterns, made-up of sub-patterns, and these determine how, within the particular conditions present (environment), this (inter)action will affect them.
Heat/Cold affecting the pattern itself.
The electron and the nucleus are not valuing each other... they are in a congruence of patterns, forming a bigger pattern.
They are in (inter)active harmony.
Their pattern mesh.
The pattern-of-least-resistance keeps the harmony intact, because their patterns are so aligned that what conflict/contradiction exists between the patterns is inferior to the congruence... and so their electron remains on its path-of-least-resistance around the atom's nucleus.  
But the relationship is not entirely harmonious.
The electron is pulling away, which keeps it rotating at the same distance.
The patterns are harmonious, aligned, but not absolutely so, because if they were they would merge into s single pattern.
They remain in a state of tension – pushing and pulling – in congruence (agreement) enough to remain bonded, but in opposition as well.  
These sub-patterns, sub-categories (because all human categories are symbols of patterns), are fragmenting, deteriorating in space/time... chaos is increasing – sometimes after first fragmenting into complexity.
Chaos increasing means possibilities are tending towards the infinite... without ever attaining it for this would be an absolute state of Chaos.
So, the world, for an organism that can only appreciate ordering, is a falling away, and this distancing is increasing.
The extraordinary projections of ideals, from a psychological standpoint, can be perceived as a (re)action to this increasing chaos, distancing of consciousness, ordering, from the world, as Flux.
Because the distance is growing, the projections, suing imagination, become exaggerated, hail-Mary’s; fantastically detached abstractions projected as ideals, so contrary to the real, as to make them ridiculous, trying to deal with this increasing gap between (inter)activity (Flux) and consciousness (ordering).


Ά


Path-of-least-resistance determines (inter)activity, and the flow of patterns, in relation to each other.
It is only when patterns merge into a unity which develops awareness (consciousness) that this path-of-least-resistance is wilfully affected – first by the organism’s ability to focus its aggregate energies, increasing the degree of resistance it can (inter)act with, and second by wilfully choosing the path-of-more-resistance as a method of gaining an advantage, in relation to other organisms and in relation to time (itself), gaining the advantage of efficiency.
The organism will direct itself along what least resists it, and then gather its energies, focusing them, so as to break through a higher degree of resistance – the former being a natural, instinctive behaviour, the latter being a sophistication of the former gained by the organism’s ability to project itself, and possibilities, in space/time.
The organism overpowers resistance, flowing through this resistance, until it comes across a pattern it can no longer overcome.
What has been overcome is left behind, it is intimate with, and it has surpassed it.
The student seeks out the teacher, the mentor, the challenger, that will resist it the most if it is ambitious, or the least, if it wishes to gradually advance.
It learns – it trains itself {askesis} – accumulating energies and acquiring the self-discipline to focus them more effectively, to surpass him, this teacher/mentor/challenger, and then leaves him behind in search for a new one.
The overcome is now intimate to it.
It no longer respects it, because it no longer has anything to lose in regards to it, but may recall it as nostalgic (re)affirmation of self, in its course of development – Becoming.
The teacher/mentor/challenger has been assimilated into the organism as strength – experience, memetic/genetic knowledge.
The student, the organism, may choose an easier path, in relation to its aggregate energies and the degree to which it can bring them to bear upon an object/objective, or it may choose the path leading to the most resistance, saving time and taking a risk.
Cost/Benefit follows the rule where increased efficiency, decrease in time towards object/objective, is accompanied with an increase in risk, in potential cost, and a decrease in risk/cost is accompanied by the increase in time required to attain the object/objective.
The evaluation of this is subjective, and its accuracy is determined pragmatically, in the application of the subjective, within the objective world.
An organism with a wilful focus can direct itself to the teacher/mentor/challenge in accordance to its own psychology, its internal organ hierarchies, producing balances of weakness/strength in its own ordering.
Its path towards least, or most resistance, will seek-out the desirable challenger/mentor/teacher in relation to this internal ordering, and in relation to its self-evaluation; if it is a conscious organism, the direction it will take will be towards its weakest, or its strongest traits in relation to a projected, in time/space, object/objective – Idea(l).  

The teacher will offer guidance, towards an object/objective; (s)he will cast light upon what the individual is seeking.
The mentor will teach how to focus energies to decrease the time, necessary to attain the object/objective, or to increase the risk/cost, of the resistance overpowered.
The challenger will test the individual’s training, focus, exposing his weaknesses and strengths, standing in-between the individual and the object/objective.
The student, individual will assess his own qualities and which object/objectives are desirable for him.
Once a teacher/mentor/challenger is overcome he is no longer necessary, and, in accordance with self-esteem, Self-Knowledge, the student, individual will seek out another.


Ά


Objectivity in relation to space/time is the approach to the (inter)activity, which consciousness lags behind, falls behind, a bridging of the subjective (interpreting) and the (inter)active world of Flux (interpreted).
Objectivity is the evaluation of possibilities, where space is the projection of the possible, in relation to the past/nature, the immutable determining sum of all previous (inter)actions, as these appear in the present, as presence. An appraisal of the possible, using patterns (order), is the un-covering, of probabilities, in relation to the organism and its presence, and is called subjectivity.
The subjective, therefore, must evaluate data as it comes from the past, and manifests as self-presence (Know Thyself), and data it receives continuously from the immediate, on-going (inter)actions, which are leaving it behind.
Time being the measure of distance between Subjective noumenon (organism) and Objective phenomenon (world).
In both cases it is the past which is explored, and evaluated in relation to self, as presence.
The appraisal is now useful as a projection towards the unknown, the yet-to-be (inter)activity of space/time.
A perceived pattern is evaluated on its consistency, its predictability: the strength of its ordering, as it relates to the ongoing Flux of (inter)activity; an appraisal of an order’s constitution compared to that of other dynamic patterns, and not, (inter)acting upon it, with it, in varying degrees of congruence, and/or antithesis.
Then it is evaluated in relation to the organism’s own organization, its own organ (inter)actions, preserving their relationships in relation to what is outside this organization of increasing synergy.  
This is the basis of value judgments and their utility to the organism.    


Ά


Each and every pattern (energy, activity with a consistent repetitive continuance), settles upon an ephemeral, though sometimes long lasting, relationship with other pattern(s).
This relationship, relating, follows the path-of-least-resistance, and is never completely harmonious – there is a pull and a push – sympathy and antipathy.
This is a congruence never complete, never absolutely symmetrical.
Congruity acts as a single body, in relation to patterns not part of their congruity.
Their aggregate energies (pattern), relating and in the relating (interacting) exchanging energies (data), increase the level of resistance they cannot overcome, broadening the path-of-least-resistance, or broadening the dimensions (space) their congruity can flow through.
This is represented as an increase in mass, interpreted as size.
When the congruity reaches a critical mass its patterns begin to harmonize to a state of increasing order – tending towards the singularity (absolute order).
Size implodes as the internal incongruities diminish and with them the push, leaving more of the pull.


Ά


A pattern can only be disrupted/altered, by a force (congruence of patterns) greater than its aggregate energies: the congruencies of patterns participating in conjunction (emergent unity).
Forces weaker than it may reduce its aggregate energies – attrition.

A living organism is a congruence of patterns which with the addition of iteration, can direct itself, and develop the ability to perceive world, and then self (self-awareness) engaging world, producing the division of mind/body and subjective/objective.
For such a congruity attrition is interpreted as need/suffering.
If the force (inter)acting with it is greater than its own aggregate energies it may lose congruity, dissolving the iteration, and the will directing it – Death.
In all other cases of lesser forces (inter)acting with it, what energies are lost must be replenished – Survival.
A species is, therefore, the behaviour (pattern of dealing with need) evolved over a sufficient period of time to become innate (instinctive, automatic).
To break from this pattern of behaviour, or to alter it, the organism must either be impacted by some traumatic force, and survive the experience, or it must apply will equal in force to the pattern’s congruity.  
To divert from the path-of-least-resistance towards paths-of-more-resistance the organism’s will is tested against its entire past/nature, which includes life-experiences, establishing routines/habits/tastes, and dependencies on methods of dealing with need/suffering, and against the sum total of all that preceded and was inherited as genetic predisposition from its ancestors, through the parents – 50% from each bloodline.

Subjective <> Objective




A+ B = Individual organism (becoming)
C = Parents in heterosexually replicating organisms.
D = Grandparents...
E, F, G, H... Bloodline determining potentials: organic/genetic probabilities, countering increasing/inflating possibilities.


******Ά******


Objective = past/nature – {A-B-C-D....}

> Immutable, Determining, represented by the anthropomorphic Abrahamic One God, converted in Modern times into theoretical (divine) substance, #1, whole etc.
The non-existence absolute can be imagined in any way, and named by any name, but the concept remains the same: absolute unity, telos (dynamic or static), Divinity...
> Know Thyself implies knowledge, and understanding of Objective world: that which cannot be changed but known, understood, and dealt with in the present – adaptation (Evolution Theory).
> Nature = sum of previous nurturing, past (inter)actions, establishing a successful pattern – behaviour – Spirit when it is animated, living.


******Ά******



Subjective = immediate past, nurture (present) – (A)

> (Inter)Activity, fluctuating dynamic, continuously producing past/nature.
> Manifesting as appearance – empirical, sensually perceived and interpreted.
> Determined by the individual organism's metabolic rates: systolic/diastolic cellular, off/on.
> Meditation: shrinking of (A) to the smallest possible coincidence of past/nature with present/interactivity.
> Experience (first-hand knowledge/understanding) + training/education/indoctrination (second-hand knowledge/understanding) = automated (re)activity to stimuli in the present, determining future.
> Meme determined by genetics, establishing a shared behaviour, a common subjectivity, spirit of becoming, in relation to objective world.
> Subjective mind samples experiences/knowledge, finding and/or adopting patterns, to project towards the unknown future.
Depth of the sample determines its cultivation – if the sample is second-hand this determines its reliance on theory and other; if it is first-hand determines its reliance on self.
> Genes & Memes overlap in the past/nature.
The first exceeding in breadth and depth the effects of the second.
Particular memes (morals, ideals, principles, beliefs, relationship/attitude towards world etc.) emerge out of particular genetic types, evolved within particular environmental conditions, and influenced by particular historical events.
The relationship of gene/meme reflects the relationship of consciousness/self-consciousness.
Memes, like genes, can be transported (metaphor), transmitted, transplanted into other genetic lines, usurping their own, but not completely buried, replaced.
Transplanted memes are shaped by the meme it is grafted over – the body never completely accepting the transplant – requiring constant interventions (medications, pharmakon: repressing already present autoimmune systems) to maintain the graft.  
   

******Ά******


Future = projection using imagination, of A+B+C+D... into the yet to be, (inter)activity, determining efficiency and effectiveness.

Brain = Evolved to function as the gathering and processing organ: hub of nervous system, collection from external [exoteric], and/or internal [esoteric] sources patterns to integrate into mental models (abstractions, noumena), in preparation, anticipation of future phenomena (what will become apparent).
Mind = projection of past/nature towards future.
Projections may be genetic: automated, over centuries of natural selection, or memetic, trained/experienced into the organism from birth.

******Ά******

x1 = Increasing complexity/fragmentation, tending towards absolute chaos – absence of patterns (possibilities expanding, reduction of probabilities).
z1 = increasing convergence/unification, tending towards absolute order – singularity, certainty, absence of (inter)activity (absolute, one, probability)

Movement towards x1-z1 never finalizes.

Consciousness and life emerges only towards x1 making z1 a imagined point in space time: idea(l).
Like an echo this past is felt as a Divine presence, or lamented as lost Paradise – nostalgia/melancholy the bane of higher minds.
The past is understood as inevitably resulting in the present, as if it is all part of a plan – as if the present was pre-ordained by a universal, all encompassing, singular pattern.


******Ά******


x1, x2, x3, x-1, x-2... represent projections of idea(l)s into future.
x0 is the point of contact between organism (self-organizing congruities of patterns/processes) and world (patterns and non-patterns coming into congruence and falling out of it) = it is the vague point of (inter)activity.

x1 = ideal alignment of past/nature with projected idea(l) = nobility

All divergent projections (x2, x3, x4... etc.) projections out of alignment, tending towards the negative.
All divergent projections (x(-1), x(-2), x(-3), x(-4)... etc.) projections completely out of alignment (ignoble), tending towards conflict/contradiction with past/nature = Nihilism.

Axis y1-y2 represents the noetic field of (inter)activity, which the individual is a part of = reality.
The particular individual's depth and breadth of awareness is the point of contact between projected x and interactive y, establishing a perceptual-event-horizon = consciousness.
Self-consciousness completes the perceptual circle backwards, towards past/nature.  

Nihilism rejects the exoteric, leaving only the esoteric, where all projections, into "future" are really regression, and denials, and contradictions of past/nature.
Nihilism inverts all meaning, describing the absence of universal morality, telos, God, meaning, as negative, when it is positive, in the sense that it makes life possible.
Similarly, this projection contrary to past/nature it calls "progress", when it is regress – all returns to a primal state, which is denied, resulting in linguistic paradoxes, or disparity between words and deeds – irony and cynicism are the psychological fallout.

At the ambiguous/vague "point" of x0 (niter)activity occurs, as the relating of organism (becoming) to other patterns or congruities of patterns, or absence of patterns.

Past/Nature being immutable beyond this x0 can only be engaged, known/understood, noetically, using the imagination.
This lends itself to the confusion plaguing Moderns, fitting into their Nihilistic "positivism/progressivity" (liberty of will) as it uses noesis, which is malleable, to engage the immutable, determined, past/nature, converting one into the other – the inversion magic of words.
Inaccessible past/nature, what is determined and cannot be altered, is converted to the symbol, the representation of noumenon, which is malleable, flexible.

Projections into the yet-to-be Future, represented in the graph by the x1, x2 ...x-1, x-2... emerging from the x0 "point" are the noetic projection of the organism's intent, either in alignment with its past, or slightly askew or contrary to it.
Projections back towards the esoteric (past/nature) are noetic attempts to intervene upon the immutable past/nature, explained, as a delving into the mind of "God".
Nihilistic desire to alter, or contradict, what has already been determined, exposing a dissatisfaction, and a dis-ease with what is, in relation to Future: to be ill at ease, un-comfortable, with the x0 as the "point" of engagement.
The organism does not choose to be born, it is "thrown into world", as some have metaphorically defined being born, slowly awakening (gradual emergence of self-consciousness, and slow expansion of the perceptual-event-horizon) to a past/nature, determining their potentials (limits of their becoming).


******Ά******


At the "point" of x0 the organism comes in contact with reality, as the sum of all (inter)activity.
x0 is the point of friction, felt as need/suffering, producing complexity and chaos as it (inter)acts with other patterns and congruities of patterns, and fluctuating non-patterned energies.
Projected towards the unknown, Future, is the focusing of the organism entire past (sum of all previous nurturing – Nature/Essence) towards an Objective/goal/Idea(l).
The "positive" numerical values (x1, x2, x3,...), whether in alignment (noble) or not, indicate a degree of engagement with world (exoteric), where esoteric and exoteric merge, via the nervous system, and engage world; the "negative" numerical values (x(-1), x(-2), x(-3),...), whether in antithesis (negative alignment) or not, indicate an inversion, a return to the esoteric (subjectivity projected towards the immutable objective past/nature); wilful desire to immerse into self, noetically, so as to reinterpret past/nature while avoiding the indifference of a contradicting nature/past experienced as an unyielding Future.
World being the sum of all (inter)acting patterns and non-patterns, is, relatively, unaffected by the desires of a single organism, and its aggregate patterns.  

Modernity, with its positivist Nihilism, (progresivity, liberalism, Marxism), is an immersion in a noetic subjectivity – projection of self, at the "point" of x0, back into self – a fleeing reality inwards, rather than directing the esoteric outwards, funnelling it, as it was meant to be, spilling forth, growing, exploring, engaging, rather than conserving self inwardly – low esoteric energies, cowardice (stress/anxiety before the unknown) incapable of coping and making excuses – converting a weakness into spiritual strength.
Unable to face the consequences, the challenge of world with its own inherited, immutable, past/nature, the organism flees inward, directing “growth” internally, trying to build up resources: miserly collection of energies (symbolism, words, numbers, support in others, alliances, proxies, strength in association, second-hand knowledge, adopted understanding, social networking, monetary wealth, popularity/fame etc.) to make a push outwards, or, if a sheltering mediating force is in place, to remain there, constructing noetic empires with theoretical power, seducing others to validate the fabrication: quantification of qualification.

Language (mathematics, symbols) being the noetic representations of x0 engaging world, becomes the tool of escape inwards, into subjective malleability, and reinterpretation of past/nature so as to convert it from immutable to mutable, saving freedom of will.
The individual is convinced that it has changed past/nature, escaped its determinations, by reinterpreting the past/nature.
Reinterpretation begins with interpretation of the apparent.
Subjective interpretation of appearances, of what is present, is how the organism discovers, un-covers past/nature.
Past/Nature is revealed in the present, as presence (appearance): the immutable converted to abstraction (simplification/generalization).
All interpretations are now accurate or equally valid.
Their projections into Future, without any mitigating sheltering force, determines their degree of accuracy.
If sheltered from the repercussions of their interpretations a false sense of ego and of world is gradually built: belief that mind is god, and world adapts to human contrivances.  
Interpreting appearance, as the manifestation of this immutable determining past/nature, is the function of the brain, producing mind.
Past/Nature, and how it relates to Future, confronts mind, forcing it to do-or-die; adapt, and/or redirect, and/or dismiss/reject/deny.
The Interpretation (abstraction), whether in cohesion or fragmented, is the noetic representation of past/nature, in reference, or not, in relation, as a (re)action, to an imminent, indifferent, unknown Future.
It becomes the flag of Modern positive Nihilism: annulling world, past/nature, with a "positive" idea(l) (absolute order), replacing the immutable with mutability.
Change is the metaphor binding Chaos with modern versions which always contain absolute order, either as given, or as intent/inevitable.
Inevitable/Intentionality conveniently coincide in confusion, as does Chaos (increasing randomness, absence of patterns...), and Chaos, as a description of change, of infinite expanding possibility with an underlying order (reason, meaning, purpose, God, oneness, whole-someness, thing-in-itself).
In this purposeful linguistic confusion we add the inversion of Nihilism to meaning a world void of human idea(l) such as universal morality, absolute order, telos, God etc.: the "positivity" of a world void of such human fabrications, giving rise to life, is reinterpreted as a "negative" that is rooted in deceit.
x(-1), x(-2), x(-3)...projections, esoterically, bury, hypothetically, theoretically, the exotreric, when in fact it is the mind burying itself in self, in its internal processes – inter-subjectivity as a community of brains, the like-minded, founded on this comforting confusion, building on linguistic frameworks (words void of references outside brains: first came the word and the words was...{?} place desirable positive nihilistic symbol here): sociopolitical of nihilism (memetic Nihilism).

Using the above simple graph we can attempt to trace the human condition in a visual way, which is more comprehensible to a predatory species, such as man.  
The x0 represents the moving point in space/time, the noetic point where organism, the self-organism (Becoming) comes in contact (friction) with world (sum of all patterned, and non-patterned energies), experiencing it as need/suffering (agon), and becoming aware of it, after-the-fact, as already part of the immutable past/nature.
Mind projects outwards, before-the-fact, in preparation of its probability, so as to gain the advantage of efficiency, which is what intelligence provides, and has proven to be dominant as a practice.
Each projection is represented by the spoke-like (x1, x2, x3, x4...)  lines, with the negative (x-1, x-2, x-3,...) representing the Nihilistic projection contrary to past/nature: inwards (esoteric) often called, with no sense of irony, by Moderns "progress", when it is a retrogression to an infantile, animal, state of awareness – a fleeing away from world (dumbing-down).
Each line is the projection, using imagination, of accumulated knowledge/understanding, overarching the point {(inter)active point} of contact (x0), so that, in effect, the mind perceives itself – using the imagination (see Levels of Cognition in my War Like No Other) from a detached, advanced theoretical point of view {Idea(l) – noetic)}.
Attempting to bridge the distance between Consciousness and Becoming, to achieve perfect congruity (being, fully, in the moment) – although impossible, in a fluctuating dynamic process – the approach towards "self" follows two direction – inwardly (Bottom<>Up), and outwardly (Top<>Bottom).
This projection is also called idea, and/or ideal, and so the problem ensues when the Top<>Bottom approach begins with a theoretical, idea, an idea(l), if it is imagined as preferable/good, or positive, begins with a theoretical, an idea, an ideal, and then perceives self from that distant/detached noetic direction – this can also be called an esoteric direction because, although the position is external to self, in noetic time/space, its focus, direction (movement/motive), is back towards past/nature, the esoteric, represented in the graph by the two parabolic lines towards past/nature, representing the two levels of awareness: 1- Self-knowledge, Self-Consciousness, and not necessarily Self-Understanding, and 2- Intuition, Instinct, also called Sub-Consciousness: from where dreams and emotions bubble up to confront the lucid mind with, sometimes, irrational imagery and sensations.

Meditation would be the closing of the mind off from future (projections), and from the ongoing (inter)action (x0 ambiguous point of contact) advancing towards x0 from internal, bottom<>up directions = from the subconscious upwards towards self-consciousness.
Since the concentric circles extend outwards, indefinitely, and the entire model is in constant motion along the x-y axis, meditation is a constant search for the noetic-point furthest back (into the sub-conscious) and the total detachment from the coming future, and from constant (inter)activity.
The movement back follows the nervous network all the way to the cellular level, or, further back perhaps, towards pure pattern, when, and if, the one meditating has mastered the discipline.
At this level the lowest-common-denominator is approached – regression to a pre-natal state.


******Ά******


Absence of absolute is absence of what never was, and never could be – nostalgia for the impossible, felt as melancholia – lamenting what can never be.
Organically it is interpreted as need/suffering: the echo of the near-absolute order in past/nature, as an echoing underlying "radiation/heat".


******Ά******


Perceived, in hind-sight (after-the-fact) looking back, towards determining, immutable, past/nature, Consciousness becomes aware of past/nature, to whatever degree it does so, as an absolute inevitability, believing that the present, appearing to it, was always “meant to be”, as if some Will was at work – this develops into the concept of Divinity, God.
Its own organizing (Becoming – congruity of patterns interacting internally), its congruity of patterns, (inter)acting with world (sum of all energies, patterned {order} and not {chaos}) will be interested as something external (exoteric), something other imposing its will, and/or as something internal (esoteric), some mysterious force expressing itself through it – mystical.
Self-consciousness emerges after consciousness of world (otherness) has already developed to a certain degree. It perceives consciousness as the unknown, participating in the sum of (inter)activity – as otherness itself.
Self-Knowledge is not a given, it is what develops gradually, just as knowledge of other develops gradually. Its relationship with its own processes, its own patterns in congruence, is one of detachment, alienation, ignorance; it is mysterious, mystical to its own self.
The existential distance produced by the noetic lag between (inter)acting and perceiving (interpreting), lag between phenomena, and noumena, caused, not only by the space/time required for processing {interpreting (inter)activity}, but also by the constant fluctuating, dynamism, making xo a noetic point in space/time and not an actual one, an unbridgeable distance between Be-coming, and Being, the theoretical static point called to-Be, always immanent, never made present. This disparity between interpretation and (inter)action producing the relationship of mysteriousness.
Perceiving mind relates to the sum of all exoteric (inter)activities, known and unknowable, and esoteric (inter)activities, known and unknowable, in the same manner: as the mysterious other(ness).
Its own pattern collection and processing placed (projection outside of self) in the position of observer, even what is observed is part of the congruity that makes this observation probable. What it then interprets as a Will outside of self {external to its patterned congruity, in constant (inter)activity} is, actually, its own automated patterns, (inter)acting in the way they always have been to produce awareness of otherness, and then of themselves.
Their assumed “inevitability” is a twofold product of hindsight, and of the probabilities caused by its own patterned congruity; their, seeming, willfulness, as if they were following some Divine principles, is actually the simplified interpretation of probability, as inevitability.
Evolving self-consciousness, taking the position of detached observer of its own consciousness {its own patterned (inter)activity, (re)acting, relating, to world}, begins to “know self” as otherness, relating to otherness not belonging to self (congruity of patterns creating an ambiguous, incomplete, unity). It then begins to realize that these patterns are really automatic processes part of its own Becoming, which are focused upon an objective/idea(l) by Will – Will is the focus of known and unknown, controlled and automated patterns upon a goal.
Then, finding similarities, patterns outside self which correspond to a pattern participating in the congruity of self, it makes the leap of faith, reasoning, and assumes that the similarity (partial and superficial as it may be) corresponds to a universal rule, where all patterns are directed, focused by some mysterious Will.
At first this leap also assumes a goal, a universal movement (motive) towards an objective – which it calls meaning/purpose/morality (God), and finally is given a more sophisticated/abstracted symbol and is called telos.
Then it advances towards the elimination of a telos, placing the end in the beginning – nihilistic inversion, re-interpreting this end/telos as immanence, as thing-in-itself, as Deus.
Its own congruity of patterns, directed by will, is converted to a conduit focusing a Divine Will, as if it was meant-to-be, or inevitable.
This is the conversion of God, as projected Future, into God (Deus), immanent, past projected as inevitable Future – immutable past/nature retains its determinism as determination (now called Creation), but is amplified (echo of past near-absolute Order converted to a crescendo) with the addition of Consciousness, of which organic consciousness is a small part of… a universal focusing Will, of which organic will is a piece of… and the patterns, participating in organic ordering (congruity of patterns), projected outward, as other-than, as if they belonged to another, and are now placed as the Divine Other Being, of which self (Becoming) is but a piece of.
The inevitability of what is present (appears), becomes reason-enough to assume a universal purpose, a directing motive (spirit), as if what-is (apparent, present) was always meant-to-be (inevitable = absolutely probable)… and when the organism, evolving self-awareness, and discrimination (perception of specific patterns independent from Flux) the organism dis-covers the same patterns participating in its own congruity, (inter)acting independent of its congruity, then conveniently assuming, that since this pattern (element = matter/energy) is found in an emerging-unity it calls “self”, directed by reason, focusing on objectives willfully, then this pattern, external from its congruity (Becoming), must also be part of a greater Self, a universal reason, focused by a cosmic Will – then it perceives all congruities, as inevitable (absolutely probable), and all (inter)activities, perceived from an external perspective (observer), are understood by sampling its own growing self-awareness as the standard, concluding that all (inter)activities, of patterns, means all (inter)activities are patterned, and, more than this, that all (inter)activities have intent – the renaming of telos.


******Ά******


The discovery and appreciation of patterns does not grantee an accurate projection into the future (prediction, preparation).
There is the matte of correctly evaluating the pattern, using precedent, preferably of others, so as to reduce subjective corruption.
There is the matter of integration of patterns into congruities, so as to predict, by understanding greater (more complex) phenomena.
There is the matter of chaos (random interactions) that can never be predicted, because they lack order (a pattern to perceive and integrate) – the mind can take them into account as the unforeseeable, the unknowable, it calls luck/chance – and complexity, patterns so subtle, lost in the complexity of (inter)activity that the mind cannot distinguish them from the overall confusing Flux.
There is the matter of disparity between perception and (inter)action, the lag between perceiving and processing patterns, and the ongoing, ceaseless (inter)activity that waits for nothing, and is always perceived after-the-fact, which means that an (inter)action may occur in that gap between perception and existence – man prepares for such events by training himself to automate (re)activity so as to reduce the necessity for processing; making (re)activity instinctive, more automated – using techniques/technologies.

Intelligence, a group of traits that working in conjunction to perceive, subtle patterns, construct intricate abstractions by integrating them into a harmonious unity (noumenon), and then using the imagination, project this mental construct in anticipation, preparing by bringing into focus all of the organisms aggregate energies, thusly multiplying their effect (synergy).
This method does not produce certainty, as no absolute is possible, but it increases probability, and therefore, by the outcome does it judge its own performance – again, a looking back, so as to adjust, and prepare for the next similar event.
This process is ongoing, like (inter)activity (existence) – a constant adaptation, increasing probability not creating certainty.
What benefits/costs are accrued become part of the past/nature – they become precedent – to be used in future evaluation.
The degree the projection was contradicted by the actual event, determines the degree of error, and insinuates, over repetitions, the quality of the mind at work – of course, this process is corrupted when the cost/benefits are intervened upon by some external, to the organism, will, such as a protective parent, teacher, or a social system.
Without the full benefits/costs affecting the organism its adjustments need not be severe – it begins to atrophy, becoming complacent, cynical (humorous/sarcastic dismissal of all, as nonsensical, as irrelevant, inconsequential), because nothing seems to affect it to a degree that would make it consider it serious, it becomes presumptuous, expecting its error to be a universal truth, never disrupted, or ending... in other words a certainty.
Anxiety/Fear decreases, the mind reduced to the level of a child (care-free, care-less), and detachment from world begins, since the world no longer affects the organism directly, but only through the mediation of this protective entity, be it parent, church, institution, or state – we can include narcotics, and all mind-numbing effects, but in their case sheltering is not actual, the mind, merely, remaining ignorant of the coming costs, and not being protected from them.


******Ά******


There is no omnipotence, no omniscience, no perfect health, no normality, no absolute whatsoever, there are only varying degrees of these concepts (describing/referring to conditions of Becoming), determined by, and in relation to, the objective world, if, and when, (inter)activities are not mitigated by an external, to the actor (acting organism), protective Will, altering the cost/benefit balances.
The most objective way to determine which noumenon, which subjective interpretation of it, is in harmony with world (objective reality) is to permit the choices made, based on the noumenon themselves, to proffer the individual organism the full benefits and costs of their application – a second method, if the first is not possible, is to project, using the imagination by using precedent, potential cost/benefits if the particular noumenon, are to be permitted to (inter)act with no mitigating entity with world, directly.
Experiences, both first- & second-hand are the establishment of a precedence-pool of knowledge, making it possible to dis-cover patterns in this precedent to establish probabilities.
Difference between first & second hand knowledge can be restated, here, as indicating experiences one is affected by the cost/benefits personally, and ones whose cost/benefits are appreciated but not experienced personally – detached appreciation increase the probability of objectivity, but at the loss of an intimate sensation with the phenomenon, and is reliant on the mind's quality, motive, and imagination.
This pool of experiences can now be analyzed (memory) so as to determine potential (probable) Future cost/benefits, without ever being certain, gaining the advantage of choice.
If the mitigating effects of an external entity, affecting cost/benefit, is impossible, or deemed undesirable, then imagination must be sued to eliminate its influence and allow cost/benefits to affect the individual noetically, gaining third-hand knowledge.
To direct imagination the individual can sample second-hand experiences from those who were affected, to a degree, by cost/benefits with no mitigating entity.

Existence is dynamic, Dynamism is existence.
Static, even when it is implied as a possibility, is a description of non-existence.
We name this dynamism "energy", or ascribe to it a lower rate of dynamic and call it "matter".
The dividing, ambiguous, line separating energy from matter is the metabolic rate of the organism observing and formulating categories, in this case the human being.
To be "thrown into existence", using Heidegger's metaphorical language, is to awaken to this dynamism, this constant (inter)activity, which is senses, on a primal level as need/suffering.
Constant (inter)activity, this existential state of dynamic movement, is what is referred to as "overflowing".
Ever-flowing from the perspective of a funnelling Will, is an over-flowing.

To clarify...
Will is the focusing of an organization (organism) upon an object/objective; the directing of aggregate energies {patterns (inter)acting} creating an internal; dynamic separated from the external by a porous, ambiguous, barrier (skin, exoskeleton) delineating the domain the organism claims as self.
This "domain" is space/time possibilities, organized into probabilities: the individual's authority, sovereignty, constantly reaffirmed and expanded – in relation to the organism strength/power - bringing the organism in constant conflict with world, and internally as each organ, each cell, asserts itself in relation to other organs and cells participating in the emergent-unity we call organism.
Over time this internal conflict settles upon a low grade antagonism – the organism by ordering harmonizes the participating patterns to a level where synergy can benefit the emergent whole - but never absolutely.
Agon contrary to other(s), is also an internal agon to attain the highest degree of order.
All life is dependent on establishing dominance over arche, principles that exist before and after awareness of existence.
Principles, laws, are descriptions of patterns, (re)acting to particular circumstances (rules of conduct), and/or simply (inter)acting.
To be-come, to come-to-Be, come-into-Becoming, master of your own domain is to hold power over your own patterns, and the principles that govern their relationships – disciplining self to awareness.
This is what is called willing.
The disciplining (control) of internal (inter)activities, as these have been determined by past/nature, is to funnel them, focus them, like a lens focuses light, towards an object/objective (Will to...Power).
The Will can do no more than direct as much of this internal energy, without shattering, as such it acts like a dam, directing a river's waters towards or away – allowing these energies to pool/collect (libidinal), is called will-power (self-control, power to wheel) and then to release them intentionally (passion = erotic/thyumotic).
Intentionality may be confused, allowing energies to spill out indiscriminately, or focused upon its object/objective, allowing the full force of this spilling power to come to bear upon this object/objective – it can be destructive to this otherness, if this other is fragile, or surprised by the surge.
Lucidity is the clarification (clearing away, cleanliness, the hallmark of a sovereign nobility) of the object/objective – its discrimination among otherness – it is to un-cover, dis-cover, re-veal, what is buried, lost in the confusion of otherness.
The organism has no possibility of arresting this constant dynamism, even if some Nihilists propose this state of "peace" as their highest life-hating idea(l).
The awareness of this absence of choice, in the matter, is indicated by the term "throwness" as part of what he called dasein.
On a simpler, more Judeo-Christian, level we can understand this as the absence of choice in being born, or choosing which place and from what parents to be born to, which implies a being outside appearances – a soul, being the living representation of the more scientific particle, atom: indivisible, immutable, monad of Being... the favourite mythology of all binary thinkers - (1) casting (0) as the "evil" negator/denier of the absolute.
To be born, into the world, is to be taken by the awareness of the flow (Flux).
Flow is Flux with a linear direction (un-dimensional, or tri-dimensional) – from the perspective of life (life on earth, to be more precise).
Dimensions indicate the field of awareness of projected possibilities/probabilities, given the (inter)activity of self-ordering (Becoming), which produces fragmentation (complexity) and randomness (chaos), as a by-product of (inter)activity – internal and external.
Within this field of awareness, with the perceptual-event-horizon representing the falling away of awareness, the limit of sensual acuity and pattern recognition; a noetic barrier is created (the concept of wholeness is based here), as if the world ended there.
Light as the extreme point of cognition, perceived as a brilliance with no distinguishing patterns within it (whiteness is the entire spectrum as one).
Light is the most dynamic energy the human brain can process, and as such it created a cognitive field of awareness – representing all of existence.
To bring into light, is a metaphorical way of saying to bring into awareness, or to pull into a mind’s perceptual-event-horizon what lies outside it, or beyond its cognitive barrier.
To un-cover, re-veal, is to shed the light of perception into the darkness of hidden, in the dark, patterns.
Patterns are never actually hidden, they are always present, apparent, but the observing mind fails to perceive them – as if they were concealed intentionally… ergo, to deny what one perceives, as “superficial”, is to intentionally choose to blind one's self to the present, the apparent – intentionality, here, comes from the organism's Will (internal), or from an alien Will: communal Will, state Will (external) – externally willed blindness is also called institutionalization, and/or indoctrination.
Intent is to be motivated, to Will one's self towards an object/objective. In this case the will directs the mind towards darkness, blindness, returning what was brought to light back to darkness, rejection of world, by exploiting its naturally occurring anxieties/fears before the uncertainty of world, as ceaseless (inter)activity.


******Ά******


To be noble is to hold dominion over the patterns participating in your Becoming, and to accept the consequences of their (inter)activity, directing them to towards an object/objective (idea(l)) that accords, is in harmony/congruity/agreement, with the principles that govern their (inter)actions.
Will, funnelling excess energies (libidinal), towards an object/objective aligned with past/nature - acting as conduit, restricting to increase its force (Hellenic Asceticism), and not restricting to stop the flow (Nihilistic/Modern Asceticism).
Excess is what is left-over once the consequences of internal (inter)activity are returned to their past/nature relationships – healing of how organs (cells) relate, as tried and tested, and established as automatic (innate).
Synergy produces a multiplication of aggregate energies, the surplus called libidinal are directed/funnelled, by Will, towards an object/objective.
The advantage, synergy offers, later evolves into the heterosexual reproduction method, and social behaviour.
Morality becomes the study, the bringing to light, of the principles governing relationships, and/or (inter)actions.

Awareness of these governing principles is what we call Philosophy.
Principles relating to living and non-living (inter)activity – wisdom.
Given that principles can only refer to patterned (inter)actions, philosophy is an amalgamation of science (study of patterns, creating cohesive models), and art (allusion to what cannot be included into a cohesive model) – the utility of metaphor and mythology is evident here, as the bridging between science and art which is really another bridging of mind/body, and/or exoteric/esoteric, subjectivity/objectivity.


******Ά******


From the simple graph we can appreciate the fact that the past/nature cannot be changed, intervened upon, ignored, nor returned to.
To know and understand it is not to accept it as desirable, but to use it to inform your projections forth, as object/objective, goal, as motive and movement towards an idea(l), that will shape my (re)activity.
A fool pretends the past/nature (sum of all nurturing) does not apply to the present, the more immediate past/nature, and that it does not affect projections into the future.
To explore past/nature, describing it as it is, finding patterns in the data to make it comprehensible, to increase understanding of it, does not mean one adopts it as the idea(l) nor that one rejects it as irrelevant.
World must be endured, not reinterpreted, covered up, and forgotten.
To explore the world, honesty, and courageously, is to bring to light what lies hidden, buried, in the dark – it is to un-conceal.
This is the necessary first step before one formulates a (re)action to it, in relation to it.

Moderns have been infected by the easy solution of changing your perspective, for so long, that any comment on past/nature, on world and reality as it is, is accompanied with the conviction that it is agreed with, because this is what they do to cope with what they cannot escape.
To speak of and explore past/nature, describing it as it is, is the same, as adopting it as a desirable, in their minds, because they are inclined to dismiss and reject, and pretend that it is not there, when what is revealed does not fit into their projected desired outcome.
As such modernity, as the most up-to-date, variant of Nihilistic dis-ease, is a constant fleeing from past/nature, and from intellectual discourse about the objective world (immutable determining past/nature), into their fantasies and an exploration of their shared subjectivity – inter-subjectivity; an endless appreciation of their creative subjectivity, unleashed upon the world when no determined restrictions from past/nature are accepted.
They live in the perpetually shifting space/time represented by (A) on the graph – the immediate, shallow past/nature which they call nurturing, or the "moment" the present, the now.
This constant maintenance within the (A) is what is called progress, as it demands a constant adopting of the most current, up-to-date, popular, fashionable, trending, subjectivity – this is why they claim to like change, though it is inevitable and requires no liking or disliking, no urging, no belief.

Imagine a marble rolling in a multi-dimensional rut.

Dimensions = possibilities of (inter)action
Marble = pattern
Rut = space/time or sum of all patterned and non-patterned energies – environment
Energy = dynamic (inter)activity

The marble's aggregate energy, in relation with environment determines its direction of flow - its mass creating its own path-of-least-resistance.
Marble (inter)acting with other patterns in a constant dynamic = existence.

Now, imagine another marble (M1) which begins to (inter)act with first marble (M2) so that in conjunction with it their aggregate energies establish a new "least" (power).
M1 & M2 patterns in relative harmony, in agreement.
Their synergy will now flow along the path-of-least-resistance together, and their combined patterns will now relate to the other patterned and non-patterned energies in a symbiotic/sympathetic unity, which may appear, to an external observer, as if they were wilfully choosing to do so or that some internal/innate force was keeping them together; as if some mysterious, divine, motive were urging them to remain relating to one another in relation to other patterned and non-patterned energies.
After a period of sympathetic/symbiosis each pattern will, through attrition, acquire the aggregate energies in relation to the partner pattern, to make their conjunction more balanced – extraneous energies lost to the friction caused by earlier disharmony/disagreement.
This will decrease the resistance caused by (inter)acting with one another, while the resistance of what remains outside their sympathetic/synergistic unity will remain the same – fluctuating.
The two patterns will now remain attached to their (inter)action, until a force in excess of their aggregate energies forces them apart.
Two, or more, such patterned sympathetic/synergistic unities are what we call particles, and/or elements, or the various types of matter/energy.
If and when such a unity develops iteration we have the beginning of the possibility for what we call life.

Objectivity = coming to a judgment, opinion of probability (perspective), by sampling the greatest amount of data, from as diverse a source group as possible.
Subjectivity = coming to a judgment, opinion of probability (perspective), by sampling a singular, most often self, or a limited – wilfully, or not – source group.  

The quality of the source data should be taken into consideration when evaluating the quantity of sources – discriminating and emphasizing quality over quantity so as to establish reliability.
Reliability = order – consistency of outcomes (superior probability).
Quantity = amount of sources, and the data, stimulation, they provide
Quality = data evaluated by its details (quantity of details) and how they refer to observable, phenomena (quantity of noetic connections to the phenomenal world).
Quality is evaluated by if and how well the data can be integrated into a single mental model which retains its relationship to the observable, sensually perceived (phenomenal) objective world (past/nature manifesting as presence/appearance).
Organism then applies its judgment, by projecting it as a goal, or by preparing for it as a soon to be part of the immutable determined/determining past, (subjective processing and analysis), and the outcome {objective world – (inter)activity} determines its quality of judgment = success/failure, intent (benefit – goal, motive, idea(l)), and cost (degree of divergence).
Quality of Judgment will be evaluated by other minds as reliability – authority based on "Right is Might".
The alternate method of establishing authority "Might is Right" begins by intervening upon world (phenomena) to then determine judgment quality, in relation to the quantity of minds participating in the intervention.

Past is both determined, in the sense that it can no longer be changed (sum of all (inter)actions), and determining, in the sense that it manifests as presence, the apparent, which a conscious organism interprets (subjectivity), evaluates, knows and may understand, given that understanding is the (re)cognition of patterns within the known (data), giving the known (first-hand/second-hand experiences) “meaning”.
Objectivity refers to this immutable determined/determining past, made into an objective so as to explore it, know it, and understand it.
Objective refers to a direction taken, a movement towards (motive). It can either be a projection of accumulated knowledge/understanding into future (idea(l), goal), or the making of past/nature into the focus of study to find, within it, knowledge and understanding.
In both cases objective refers to a destination.
To make reality/world into an objective is to make it a destination to explore, know, and understand, interpreting its manifestations.
Overcoming individual limitations in knowing/understanding the organism may sample second-hand, and/or third-hand knowing/understanding (experiences), juxtaposing it with its own and then with the apparent, the ongoing past/nature made present.      
Meaning = evaluation of past, being perceived as apparent, future manifestations – it is a word referring to an organism’s capacity to project, what it has accumulated as knowledge/experiences, into future as predicted probabilities.
The conscious organism uses experience to pre-empt the future consequences of the ongoing (inter)activity (Flux), gaining efficiency in preparation, and gaining an increase (enhanced) focus (will) and application of its aggregate energies.
To these it ascribes a “value” (qualitative judgment), or a degree of projected probability, and gives it a numerical code, in the case of an organism, like man, with a broader, and deeper, perceptual-event-horizon.  
Value is an assessment of a pattern’s or a congruence of patterns, quality in relation to (inter)activity (Flux) – an assessment of their constitution, their order(ing) within the Flux; their utility to the organism.
Utility being an evaluation of reliability (order = repeating, predictability), and effect, relating to need/suffering or movement towards an objective (idea(l)).
Repeating, replicating, the essence of order(ing), as it pertains to life, as self-order(ing) within contradicting (inter)activity of patterned (order = consistent) and non-patterned (chaos = randomness) Flux.
An organism interprets presence, the apparent, giving it meaning and value, in relation to its own motives (movement towards), its own goal as this is dictated by its need/suffering – the sensation of Flux upon its organizing.
Need/Suffering may be immediately (re)acted to, such as with simpler organisms, where the motive is as simple as the continuous correction (healing) and accumulation (collection) of energies required to deal with the ongoing Flux, or it may be postponed, using a longer time-frame, where the organism may even relinquish the demands of its own wellbeing so as to direct itself, or a unity of organisms towards a goal (objective) it has evaluated highly, in that it has found in it deeper meaning and has appreciated it as having a higher value; value as a comparison to the motives of other organism and in reference to Flux, and the endurance of it.
Past is not escaped, but it may be misinterpreted, ignored (selectively or totally), forgotten {lethe}, dismissed (rejected), as irrelevant, and buried, under symbols/words (covered by the symbols referring to them, not to reveal but to conceal), but it can never be contradicted because it is manifesting as presence, which the organism perceives and interprets as apparent, as that which appears.
Past/Nature challenges the organism to be interpreted as precisely (correctly) as possible, and to then alter its direction (slight modification due to willful intervention) once patterns predicting direction are discovered, or to adapt to it, altering self (ego) in relation to it (self-control, self-cultivation), and/or to cope with it, accepting the immutability of past/nature, by facing it completely and directly (part of self-cultivation).
Self-Control = gathering and directing aggregate energies (patterns), or what is in excess of what is required to heal the attrition of flux upon the organism.
Self-Cultivation = increase in the quality of patterns required (judgment based on awareness) participating in the organism’s congruity, as (re)action to the shifting dynamics of (inter)activity (Flux)  
The presence of past is also called world, or reality, or nature as the sum of all past (inter)activity (nurturing being the most recent past).
The quality of the organism’s interpretation (subjectivity) of what is present, or apparent, will determine its own future, motivated by its own objective, which in its simplest, primal, form is self-preservation, and may later evolve past it towards higher objectives, such as self-growth, self-expansion beginning with reproduction – re-peat what has proven itself in time/space (natural selection).  
What is re-produced is what has been judged as being reliable, as in order which has remained relatively resistant to the attrition of (inter)active Flux – this is where the appreciation of symmetry (beauty), of mind/body, applies.

Science deals with patterns – that which is perceptible, and produces techniques/technologies as extensions of how patterns are known and understood, reflecting the biological process of assimilation and reproduction/replication.
Spirituality deals with what is unperceived, claiming to know the mind of God, absolute order, the all-encompassing pattern (singularity), or it indirectly symbolizes (metaphor) what is incomprehensible, reducing it to a code the organism can process (know and seek patterns within = understand, find meaning, utility).
Science cannot integrate chaos (randomness) into its abstractions, its linguistic/numerical codes, excluding it from theories.
Chaos has no meaning, no utility, in that it cannot be used to predict future – what confronts this desire/need to predict, prepare, and reproduce.
Philosophy, if it has integrity and courage, if it is honest (honourable) in its intent (motive), cannot ignore chaos (unpredictably predictable), as the (inter)active (existing) which exhibits no expectedness, reliability, repeating consistency. If it fails to do so it becomes another spirituality, assuming a universal pattern, or a science that cannot exceed its utility as collection and processing of patterns – extension of body as mind, replicating (reproducing) self in world, or as world.
Philosophy as an amalgamation of science and art, integrates spirituality as the indirect expression and appreciation of what is mysterious, or inconceivable – that which lacks order – and like an artist/scientist the philosopher uses science (study and understanding of patterns) to indirectly (metaphorically) expose a reality that no ordering mind can directly.
Spirituality, of the Abrahamic kind, by assuming absolute order, or that all hides an underlying pattern, implies that the “mind of God” is knowable, presenting self as the conduit of this knowledge – sometimes claiming to also understand it.
Self (ego) projected as the technique/technology that is timeless, possessing innate value, utility, meaning, and the particular as the superior expression of this utility (priest), and the one who can accurately perceive and translate/decipher (interpret) what, for most, lies beyond their perceptual-event-horizon.
In this all-is-ordered paradigm even the chaotic is converted into another form of order – either as complexity, or as an intimate symbol reflecting individual anxiety (reactivity) towards world, as Flux.
Devil/Satan and 0, nil are the spiritual and scientific symbols representing this assumption.    
In this case both Abrahamic spirituality and Science share a Nihilistic leaning, as they assume what they seek, and assume it to be an end (telos) – potentially knowable (omniscience).
This is particularly so when science takes its symbols (representations) literally, like Abrahamic spirituality does, and not figuratively (approximations reflecting biological methods).
Spirituality precedes philosophy, and science follows it. As such this literal approach to the codes/representations of science reverts science back to spirituality, circumventing philosophy altogether – reflecting the process of mind circumventing nervous system and reverting back to body.

Science = mind (exoteric)
Philosophy = nervous system, including brain (integrative, connective)
Spirituality = body (esoteric)

Abrahamic model...
Father (absolute order) – Past/Nature
Holy Ghost (spirit) – Nervous System
Son (Jesus) – Reason (man)

Bastardization of the Platonic spirit (charioteer).
Rider = Reason (mind)
Reigns (will: control/connectivity/cohesion) = nervous system
Steeds (black/white) = passions (nature/past) – to know past/nature is to know self (know thyself).

The symbolic hierarchy is not accidental it is indicative of intent, of the psychological approach towards existence – movement towards world.
The Abrahamic (nihilistic) model places nature/past as the knowable/unknown authority (often worshiped as divine, good) dominating nervous system supressing, directing reason with its demands (law, commandment).
Secular humanism eliminates past/nature as god, leaving man to submit reason to his nervous system, which he fails to comprehend (the most intimate part made mystical), relegating it in the position of mysterious divinity, in place of past/nature (god). Human nervous (re)actions to Flux dictate reason’s conclusions (hedonism, the pleasure principle = need/suffering determining reason) – reverting to an animal state of pure (re)activity to stimuli, with preservation of self tis prime concern/care (motive).
God (past/nature) is replaced by brain and nervous system, which is always (re)active to the immediate (Modern), guided by no past/nature, nor limited by it – born a clean slate (no baggage, nothing to shame or limit self-identification and all choices are made possible, in theory, godliness)  

Spirit (soul) is exposed as another word/symbol for past/nature manifesting as the apparent, as present – ergo the spirit of a situation/event/circumstance, or of an individual (self/ego), or an intent (willful movement towards a goal, such as art) is that which underlies the apparent as past/nature.
Spirit is “timeless” (immortal) as it resides outside space/time (Flux) and is immune to change, interventions, and past/nature is boundless, with no end.
To say that “soul of a man lives on” is to anthropomorphize soul to mean self, indicating that the past, which the individual is the manifestation of, will continue on, after his death, to the degree that his presence has made an impact – his (inter)activity reverberating in all patterned and non-patterned Flux, like waves causes and left behind by a stone impacting an ocean’s surface.      
 
The benefits are psychosomatic for an organism dependent on order, and on accurately and effectively perceiving assimilating it to cope with Flux; the cost is arrogance, and/or delusion, that may approach the level of derangement, compensating for organic need/suffering.
Fear of chaos is essentially fear of death – the dis-ordering of organism.

Pattern: dynamic repeating consistency – order(ing).
Dynamism can be divided into patterned (order) and non-patterned (random) = the word “energy” is often used to refer to both. We can also use flow, since words are noumena: metaphors, representations of phenomena.
Pattern (ordering) can also be defined as the reduction of possibility – increase of particular possibilities = probability.
Absence of pattern (randomness) can also be defined as increasing possibility, and decreasing probability = chaos.
Expansion of space/time is the representation of this increase in cosmic possibilities, tending towards, but never finalizing as, absolute chaos.  
We may use the metaphor of “vibration” to accurately represent patterned and non-patterned dynamism.
We cannot speak of a “thing” vibrating since vibration is what is interpreted as “thing” by consciousness.
Interpretation involves the simplification/generalization of perceived patterns, converting the dynamic into static forms the organism can then process, and use to construct mental models (abstractions/noumena), so as to orient and direct (will) itself within world.  

Patterned Dynamism/Vibration is characterized by two attributes:
1- Frequency: rhythm of repetition – interpreted sensually (form, colour, texture, odour, tone, taste…), and converted/translated into a form the observing/organism can process – converted into a pattern already part of the organism’s congruency, making it known, intimate.
- If slower than the observing organism’s metabolic (processing) rates, it is perceived/interpreted as solid, matter, of varying degrees of substantiality.
- If faster than the observing organism’s metabolic rates (processing), it is perceived/interpreted as ethereal, or airy, liquid, or a variety of different kinds of energy.
2- Force: Vibration’s time/space effect, it’s (inter)active potential, divided into two:
a- Movement: degree of increase in dimensional possibilities, accompanied by a proportional decrease in all the others – propulsion towards. Movement follows the path-of-least-resistance, and only diverts from this in special circumstances of what we call life/consciousness. This “shapes” the pattern’s range of potentials.
b- Strength: space/time range of attraction/repulsion effect – sphere of possible (inter)activity. We may call this power.
The vibration’s strength, in conjunction with its movement (Force) determines its range (possibility) of effect. Later, when combinations reach the level of life, this effect is sensually perceived, and interpreted, as form – form is the ambiguous/porous border (fluctuating), delineating the organism’s space/time signature; its range of effect (physical). When the component of mind is added as a multiplier, then this range of effect is increased, in space/time, due to the potential of exploiting and manipulating, at a distance, the effects of other organisms, and/or non-organic congruencies, and due to the efficiency it results in, multiplying the congruence of patterns aggregate potential, or range of effect.    

Pattern attracts/repulses according to how its particular vibration (inter)acts with other patterns (and non-patterned flows), each with their own frequency, and force.
No intent necessary. Intent presupposes consciousness, and patterns on this base level, are simply (inter)acting as only they can, and inter-relate in accordance with their pattern.  
Some patterns coincide, temporarily, and quickly dissolve in the Flux of (inter)activity, and the attrition this (inter)activity implies, while others bond, for longer periods of time, due to the attraction/repulsion balance, between their respective frequencies/forces, and in relation to all other patterned and non-patterned dynamics (environment) providing reactive, repulsive counter-force that pushes them into bonds we can call congruency.
Patterns in congruence are not in perfect/complete harmony – they are attracting, and repulsing one another, to a degree, and in relation to patterns and non-patterns not part of their congruence. The repulsion is not as great as that of patterns not part of their congruence, enabling the congruence to become stable – unity.
We can speak of a “unity” only in relation to less stable congruencies, measured by their time/space effect.
We can say that the frequency/force of each vibration relates to others in specific ways, repulsing/attracting in degrees – if the degree of attraction, along with the degree of external repulsion is stronger than the degree of internal repulsion then stability is established.  
Over time, attrition slowly deteriorates the disharmonic elements in their respective vibrations, resulting in stronger, more harmonious bonds – we call these elements, or particles…or by any other name denoting the stable “building blocks” of matter/energy.
These combinations are united into the varying types of matter/energy we, as conscious entities, then categorize in relation to our own biorhythms, or metabolic rates = our own patterns participating in an organisation (organism) we call life.  
These unities are never perfectly stable.
Vibrations are never in perfect harmony, but always relatively so.  

Elements, unities of patterns (vibrations), construct the cosmos as we can perceive/interpret it sensually.
Combinations of vibrations in relative harmony bond into larger, more complex unities.
Internal repulsion is never absent. They remain in congruence only in relation to how their respective patterns (inter)act, and in relation to how their congruence (inter)acts/relates, to patterns, and non-patterns, outside their congruence.
As multiple patterns combine into more intricate relationships their aggregate vibrations increase their space/time force.  
The pattern’s, or combination of patterns, frequency/signature deteriorates with every (inter)activity – temporal attrition.
 
Life: a congruence of vibrations/patterns that, on a very rudimentary level, is characterized by iteration.
Iteration emerges when the congruence (unity), and its aggregate patterns, produce a Force strong enough to partially reintegrate, by attraction, what is continuously being lost due to temporal attrition = (inter)activity, Flux.
Attrition is slowed down.
If this reduction proceeds long enough for the coincidental assimilation, accumulation, of patterns, in excess of what is being lost in the course of the unity’s movement in space/time, then Force may grow.
With this growth/increase, the path-of-least-resistance alters accordingly, opening up new possibilities, converting them to probabilities.
We have the beginning of feeding, the precursor to reproduction/procreativity, and creativity.
The congruence may then attract and selectively repulse elements.
This selectivity may emerge due to the expected attraction of elements that are in harmony with the ones already included in it – like attracts like, repulsion being dis-like, or un-like.        


Ά


Speaking of attraction/repulsion when discussing cosmos, we do not mean an intent, a presupposed telos – an objective.
This only applies to what we call life, and patterns that had developed controlled iteration, and the ability to direct aggregate energizes towards a source of replenishing those lost to (inter)activity.
Preceding this, and when concerning patterns in congruity, or non-patterned energies, the words attraction/repulsion describe, from the vantage point of a consciousness, the manner by which one pattern relates to another, when in contact, if not in congruence.
By definition one pattern is distinct from another, in degree, and this distinctiveness, no matter how large or small it might be, describes repulsion, leaving attraction to describe the degree to which each pattern is similar to the other; their vibrations in near harmony, or locking, due to the peaks and valleys their resonance and sequenced pitches produce – similar to systolic/diastolic rates, or exhaling/inhaling, where either breathing is in agreement, or linked, when one's exhale is in sync with the others inhale, producing a bond of codependency.
This is not by design, or part of a wilful agreement, or a pre-existing intent.
The pattern would continue as it is, whether there were another there to be in congruence with, and it would still deteriorate, in space/time with every (inter)action.
Like an explosion producing a loud sound, at first with minimal tones distinguished, and then fragmenting into a variety of tones, as each one clashes with the others, tending towards silence, cosmos is the echo of this past explosion, ignited by a disharmony, a contradiction that could not be reconciled.
Every sound carries this echo in its vibration, it is this past resonating in presence, as it declines into silence.

Encapsulation (4)

Post by Dæmon on Sat Aug 13 2016, 20:47

Independence (Freedom/Liberty): implying a state of chaos, for chaos is a randomness not determined by precedent, or an effect that does not comply with patterns of causation.
Moderns worship chaos, oftentimes not knowing that they do so, because they’ve “corrected” chaos by inserting into it a hidden dimension of absolute order, from where it emerges.
This “secret” order manifesting in freedom-producing randomness they call by many different names: God, One, Self etc.
Secular humanism, or the Modern secularization of Abrahamic Nihilism, redefines chaos as complexity to maintain the idea(l) of order within a preferred randomness that eliminates determinism, by breaking causal chains. Complexity is described as “knowable”, as is the mind of God, through incomprehensible in that it evades reason: mystery of the Divine.
Man as sinner becomes man existing in chaos, aspiring towards the absolute order which is assumed to be in existence, manifested in all phenomena, though elusive.
The presumed absolute order, governing existential randomness that offers “free-will”, must possess consciousness as the highest manifestation of order.
In this way Moderns unify the contradicting ideals of free-will (independence from determining causality – past/nature), and absolute order (indicating an underlying intentionality that does not interfere with freedom).
The immutable past is demonized, rejected, to achieve liberation from the “cruel evilness” of nature, and the mutable present is sanctified as appearance guided by an immutable sacred code of conduct – Nihilistic Inversion.
Future is shaped by this inversion. In the first case it is thought of as an already existent absolute order, awaiting discovery, with the past tricking the mind and disrupting its movement towards the sacred, and in the second the divine is to be constructed out of its receding remnants in past/nature.

Law of Attraction/Repulsion

A pattern projects a field of attraction/repulsion, equal to tis aggregate energies, which may include patterns in relative disharmony with it, thusly affecting this dimensional field of repulsion/attraction.
Every pattern follows the path-of-least-resistance as a relationship between its congruence, producing an aggregate force, and its momentum, determine by previous (inter)actions and its aggregate force.
Momentum indicated an increase of possible (inter)activity (movement) in one, or more, dimensions.
A pattern attracts patterns of its kind, or those more in harmony with it (attraction more than repulsion), as a product of its pattern (inter)acting with other patterned and non-patterned energies.
When it comes in contact with a pattern of its own kind (is in the vicinity where its field of attraction/repulsion (inter)acts with another pattern) the harmony between the patterns combines to form an aggregate that changes the path-of-least-resistance, resulting in a congruence.
The stronger pattern sweeps the weaker one into its congruence – assimilates it.

If a pattern is not of its own kind, not in perfect harmony with the stronger aggregate, congruence occurs only if the repulsion is overwhelmed by the stronger aggregates attraction, or by its momentum. The relationship with other patterns in the vicinity determines how resistant the weaker aggregate pattern is to the stronger.              


Ά

A congruence of patterns (unity) may contain patterns in relative disharmony with other patterns in its congruity. The conflicting patterns remain in congruence only if the repulsion (disharmony) is lower than the attraction (harmony), and then only for a period of time/space where no other unity of patterns, does not (inter)acts with it to a degree where the attraction is insufficient to compensate for the repulsion.
As long as these different patterns remain in a repulsion/attraction balance, they constitute a unity in relation to other patterns; a unity characterized by their combined attraction/repulsion, and what excess in energies are produced – such excess manifest as the unity’s field of attraction/repulsion, in relation to other patterns.  

Ά

Harmony/Disharmony

Patterns relate (interact) harmoniously or disharmoniously, producing the attraction/repulsion force.
Harmony indicates a pattern’s dynamic cycles, or its activity/tone, in relative coincidence with those of another pattern – a variant that affects this coincidence, other than the essence of the pattern’s rhythms, is direction, or movement towards, which affects its (inter)activity potentials in space/time, where space means possibility, and time means rate of movement.

If we consider this from a more complex standpoint, as with particles, where patterns (more than two different pattern interacting) are in congruence, and in relative harmony, then the pattern can be thought of as a unity, characterized by internal repulsion/attraction, projecting in space/time a field of repulsion/attraction which is the product of these internal relationships.
This ephemeral congruity (unity) now acts as a singular entity, with its own unique repulsion/attraction fields.
Such relationships are not a product of intent, but a natural manifestation of these particular patterns (inter)acting, and moving in conjunction in space/time (congruence).
The degree of internal repulsion/attraction governing the different patterns in their relating, will produce a unified attraction/repulsion in relation to patterns, or non-patterned energies, not part of the relationship.

If we shift our conceptualization slightly towards the visual and away from the sonar we can add a new perspective to our, imprecise, understanding.
Pattern, we’ve conceptualized, as vibration, including dynamism in our understanding of order(ing) – pattern as predictable consistency and repeating cycles; Harmony/Disharmony as rhythmic resonance/dissonance, and convergence unifying tempos into a melody, in the case of harmonious resonance, where the stronger vibration does not disrupt the weaker one but supports it, settling upon an ephemeral relationship, the strength of which is determined by the degree of attraction/repulsion characterizing the (inter)activity of the two, or more, patterns.
Let us now conceptualize it visually as spinning – each pattern indicating a rate/speed of spin towards a dimensional direction(s) (possibility/possibilities) – direction of spin establishing the positive/negative affiliation, we’ve also described as attraction/repulsion.
A pattern with a consistent rate of spin is in order, whereas one with an inconsistent spin is in chaos (randomness), changing possibility into probability, to the degree that this spin and its direction is consistent.
Using this metaphor we can conceptualize harmony, between patterns, as their different rates of spin aligning themselves in direction, producing convergence.
Incongruity remains as the difference is rate of spin, affecting the congruity by slowing down its movement in time/space (dimension/direction) – the degree of this difference is what produces attrition, slightly modifying patterns to convert them into partners.
Attrition also contributing to the overall complexity and entropy of cosmos – released as heat/radiation.
If we add more spinning patterns into this simple binary relationship, creating a complex unity of interrelating spins, the unity is held together by their relative spins acquiring alignment with each other. Individual rates of spin remain unaltered, but their relative similarity converges their differing direction (harmony) aligning their movement through space/time – convergence of probabilities that now increases their aggregate force, and so redefines the path-of-least-resistance, in other words changing the unified relationship with other patterns and non-patterned energies.
To an outside observer the different patterns flowing in unison towards the same direction (possibility), along the path-of-least-resistance, would appear as if the differing patterns were purposefully, and willfully in congruence, or that their movement was governed by intent emerging out of them, when, in fact, it is no more than how their patterns relate with each other (attract/repulse), flowing in space/time towards path-of-least-resistance, as this is determined by their always disharmonious, in degree, congruity.  
If the rates of spin are so divergent, or their movement in space/time (direction) too conflicting no congruence is established. Direction alignment is possible relative to the divergent pattern’s aggregate energies, and their difference in spin – therefore a stronger aggregate pattern, can only harmonize with a weaker one if the stronger one is strong enough to align the weaker one’s dimensional divergence.
