[ideology.] An ongoing monologue on the ''hard won smatterings from the toolbox of becoming."

A >> B. No need for “fan C.”

Be. Do.

Actualize.

A need arises, or: a human thing occurs.

A thought, a sight, an emotion, a desire.

The kernel of will is born.

The emotions get to work, the brain builds it with the sight, sense, etc- and then perhaps a thing is born.

Then, we start wondering if anyone likes us, because we're so over-loaded with having created something, we wonder if anyone else noticed.

This may turn into something later.

If I utilize a simple kernel of will.

There is little I could possibly hope to do in terms of introducing this. The words of this man loosen the strings of my neck and shoulders, jaw and leaves me needing to drink some water. If you read this slowly, and pause when you feel punched in the middle of the chest, take your time, cry, get up, scream, do whatever it is -

This article is going to rip you in half, most likely- if you're a caring person. You have been warned, but it's also beautiful and truly a master piece. This is the third talk of Jiddhu Krishnamurti, perhaps one of the most intriguing philosophers of the last 150 years.

There is no buddha, but there are shining examples among women and men, and this guy really left a hell of a legacy for us to learn from, if we are to open our hearts and read slowly.

Perhaps read it with a spouse or friend, or a small group, a few pages at a time, out loud- and discuss it. I took a class like that once that was very effective, it was a poetry course, and we would sit (less than 12 of us) in chairs around a circle, and the teacher was just part of the circle, not in the middle or anything... We learned a lot.

We'd read 5 pages each in order clockwise or counter clockwise or we'd draw #'s out of a little plastic tub or glass jar, and then go in that order reading. homework “” , what only of it there was literally was only reading, between 30-60 pages, and the course was three times a week. we got a lot of books read, and it was utterly fascinating and really transformational for me.


Here is The Third Talk, without further adieu.

Many of us must have considered the problem of disintegration. Almost everything that we touch soon disintegrates. There is no creative, worthwhile action which soon does not end in complexities, worries, miseries, and confusion. It must have occurred to many of us why this should be so, and why at different levels of our human existence there is a darkened withering away and deterioration. We must have noticed this and found some kind of answer. We accept it as inevitable and find some worthwhile or merely verbal explanation, and we are satisfied because whatever we do, we want some explanation, some satisfactory words that will soothe our active mind. So we will soon get lost in the jungle of explanations.

We are going to discuss this evening the question of “education.” It seems to me that one of the major factors of deterioration everywhere is the so-called education. We are going into that presently as succinctly as possible. But before I go into that very complex problem, I think it is very necessary that you and I should not merely either accept or refute anything I am going to suggest. Perhaps it may be new or it may be very old, but the mere rejection or acceptance of it without really understanding the whole complex problem is utterly valueless. So, may I suggest that while you are listening, you do not say, “That is impossible,” “It is not practical,” “It is not worthwhile,” “All that we know already.” All that indicates merely, does it not, a very sluggish mind, a mind that does not want to penetrate and understand the problem. And our minds are dull, especially at the end of the day after doing some worthless action of a routine, stupid life; we come here generally for entertainment, for something to listen to or talk about afterwards. At this meeting, I suggest that we consider this problem of education and examine it together – but not that I am stating the problem and you are looking at it.

What do we mean by education? Why do we want to be educated? Why do you send your children to be educated? Is it the mere acquisition of some technical knowledge which will give you a certain capacity, with which to lead your life so that you can apply that technique and get a profitable job? Is that what we mean by education, to pass certain examinations and then to become a clerk, and from a clerk to climb up the ladder of managerial efficiency? Or, do we educate our children or educate ourselves in order to understand the whole complex problem of living? With what intention actually do we send our children to be educated or do we get educated ourselves? Obviously, taking it factually as things are, you get educated in order to get a job and with that you are satisfied; and that is all you are concerned with – to be able to earn a livelihood by some means. So you go to a college or to a university, you soon marry and you have to earn a livelihood, and before you know where you are, you are a grandfather for the rest of your life. That is what most of us are doing with education; that is the fact. With that, most of us are satisfied.

But is that education? Is that an integrating process in which there can be a comprehension of the whole, total process of life? That is, do you want to educate your children to understand the whole of life, and not merely a segment of life like the physical, emotional, mental, psychological, or spiritual; to have not the compartmental, divided outlook but a whole, total, integrated outlook on life in which, of course, there is the earning capacity? Now, which is it that we want – not theoretically but actually? What is our necessity? According to that, you will have universities, schools, examinations or no examinations. But to merely talk narrowly about linguistic divisions seems to me utterly infantile. What we will have to do as mature human beings – if there are such entities existing – is to go into this problem. Do you want your children to be educated to be glorified clerks, bureaucrats, leading utterly miserable, useless, futile lives, functioning as machines in a system? Or, do you want integrated human beings who are intelligent, capable, fearless? We will find out, probably, what we mean by “intelligence.” The mere acquisition of knowledge is not intelligence, and it does not make an intelligent human being. You may have all the technique, but that does not necessarily mean that you are an intelligent, integrated human being.

So, what is this thing that brings about integration in life, that makes a human being intelligent? That is what we want; at least, that is what we intend to find out in our education, if we are at all intelligent and interested in education. That is what we are attempting to do, are we not? Does this subject interest you, sirs? You seem rather hesitant. Or do you want to discuss about the soul? Sirs, education is really one of our major problems, if not the most important problem in life because as I said, everything is deteriorating around us and in us. We are not creative human beings. We are merely technicians. And if we are creating a new world, a new culture, surely there must be a revolution in our outlook on life, and not merely the acceptance of things as they are or the changing of things as they are.

Now, is it possible through education, the right kind of education, to bring about this integrated human being – that is, a human being who is thinking in terms of the whole, and not merely of the part; who is thinking as a total entity, as a total process, and not indulging in divided, broken up, fractional thinking? Is it possible for a human being to be intelligent – that is, to be without fear – through education so that the mind is capable of thinking freely, not thinking in terms of a Hindu or a Muslim or a Christian or a Communist? You can think freely only when your mind is unconditioned – that is, not conditioned as a Catholic or a Communist and so on – so that you are capable of looking at all the influences of life which are constantly conditioning you; so that you are capable of examining, observing, and freeing yourself from these conditions and influences; so that you are an intelligent human being without fear.

Our problem is how to bring about, through education, a human being who is creative, who is capable, who possesses that intelligence which is not burdened and which is not shaped in any particular direction but is total, who is not belonging to any particular society, caste, or religion so that through that education and with that intelligence, he arrives at maturity and therefore is capable of making his life, not merely as a technician but as a human being.

Now, that is our problem, is it not? Because we see what is happening in the world and especially here in this industrially backward country, we are trying to catch up industrially with the rest of the world; we think it will take ourselves and our children to catch up with the rest of the world. So, we are concerned with that, and not with the whole, total problem of living in which there is suffering, pain, death, the problem of sex, the whole problem of thinking, to live happily and creatively; we brush all that aside and are only concerned with special capacities. But we have to create a different human being, so obviously, our whole educational system must undergo a revolution, which means, really, there must be the education of the educator. That is, the educator must himself obviously be free or attempt to be free from all those qualities which are destructive in him, which are narrowing him down.

We must create a different human being who is creative. That is important, is it not? And it is not possible to do this in a class where there are a hundred children or thirty or forty children and only one teacher – which means, really, every teacher must have very few children, which means again, the expense involved. So, seeing the complexities, the parents want to get their children educated somehow so that they may serve for the rest of their life in some office. But if you, as parents, really love your children – which I really question – if you are really concerned with your children, if you are really interested in their education, obviously you must understand this problem of “what is education.” It must present itself to you, must it not?

As things are at present, and with this educational system and the so-called passing of examinations, is it possible to bring about an integrated human being, a human being who understands life or who is struggling to understand life – life being earning a livelihood, marriage, and all the problems of relationship, love, kindliness? This is only possible where there is no ambition. Because, an ambitious man is not an intelligent man, he is a ruthless man; he may be ambitious spiritually, but he is equally ruthless. Is it possible to have a human being without ambition? Can there be the right education which will produce such a human being – which means, really, a spiritual human being? I rather hesitate to use the word because you will immediately translate it in terms of some religious pursuit, some superstition. But if you are really concerned with education, is not that our problem?

Your immediate reaction to that is: What is the method? You want to know what the method is, how this can be brought about. Now, is there a method? Do please listen to this; don't brush it aside. Is there a method – a system – for the educator which will bring about that state of integration in a human being? Or, is there no method at all? Our educator must be much concerned, very watchful, very alert with each individual. As each individual is a living entity, the educator has to observe him, study him, and encourage in him that extraordinary quality of intelligence which will help him to become free, intelligent, and fearless. Can there be a method to do that? Does not method imply immediately conditioning a student to a particular pattern which you, as educator, think is important? You think you are helping him to grow into an intelligent human being by inflicting on him a pattern which you already have of what an intelligent human being should be. And you call that education, and feel as though you have created a marvelous world, a world in which you are all kind, happy, creative.

We have not created a beautiful world, but perhaps, if we know how to help the child to grow intelligently, he might create a different world in which there will be no war, no antagonism between man and man. If you are interested in this, is it not the obvious responsibility of each grown-up individual to see that this kind of education does come about – which means, really, the educator can have only a very few students with him; there may be no examinations, but there will be the observation of each student and his capacities. This means, really, that there will be no so-called mass education, that is, educating thousands in two or three classes. That is not education.

So if you are interested in this, you will create a right kind of educator and help the child to be free to create a new world. It is not a one man job; it is the responsibility of the educator, of the parent, and of the student. It is not just the teacher alone that is responsible for creating a human being, intelligent and fearless, because the teacher may attempt it, but when the child goes back home, the people there will begin to corrupt him; they will begin to influence him; his grandmother will begin to condition his mind. So it is a constant struggle. And unless you as parents cooperate with the teacher and produce the right kind of education, obviously there is going to be greater and greater deterioration. That is what intelligent human beings are concerned with – how to approach this problem. But, most of you say you do not want to think of these problems at all; you want to be told what to do, to follow certain systems and put other things aside. All that you are concerned with is the begetting of children and passing them on to teachers.

But if you were really concerned with the right type of education, surely, it is your responsibility as grown-up people to see that through education there is right livelihood, not any old livelihood. Right livelihood implies, obviously, not joining the army, not becoming a policeman, not becoming a lawyer. Obviously, those three professions are out if you are really concerned with the right kind of education. I know, sirs, you laugh at it because it is a joke to you, it is an amazing thing; but if you really take it seriously, you would not laugh. The world is destroying itself; more and more means of vast destruction of human beings are there; those who laugh are not really concerned with the shadow of death which is constantly accompanying man. Obviously, one of the deteriorating factors for man is the wrong kind of education as we have at present.

To create an intelligent human being, there must be a complete revolution in our thinking. An intelligent human being means a fearless human being who is not bound by tradition, which does not mean he is immoral. You have to help your child to be free to find out, to create a new society – not a society according to some pattern such as Marx, Catholic, or capitalist. That requires a great deal of thought, concern, and love – not mere discussions about love. If we really loved our children, we would see that there would be right education.

Question: Even after the end of the British rule, there is no radical change in the system of our education. The stress as well as the demand is for specialization – technical and professional training. How best can education become the means to the realization of true freedom?

Krishnamurti: Sir, what do we mean by true freedom? Political freedom? Or is it freedom to think what you like? Can you think what you like? And does thinking bring about freedom? Is not all thinking conditioned thinking? So, what do we mean by true freedom?

So far as we know, education is conditioned thinking, is it not? All that we are concerned with is to acquire a job or use that knowledge for self-satisfaction, for self-aggrandizement, to get on in the world. Is it not important to see what we mean by true freedom? Perhaps if we understand that, then the training in some technique for professional specialization may have its value. But merely to cultivate technical capacity without understanding what is true freedom leads to destruction, to greater wars; and that is actually what is happening in the world now. So let us find out what we mean by true freedom.

Obviously the first necessity for freedom is that there should be no fear – not only the fear imposed by society, but also the psychological fear of insecurity. You may have a very good job and you may be climbing up the ladder of success, but if there is ambition, if there is the struggle to be somebody, does that not entail fear? And does that not imply that he who is very successful is not truly free? So fear imposed by tradition, by the so-called responsibility of the edicts of society, or your own fear of death, of insecurity, of disease – all this prevents the true freedom of being, does it not?

So freedom is not possible if there is any form of outward or inward compulsion. Compulsion comes into being when there is the urge to conform to the pattern of society or to the pattern which you have created for yourself as being good or not good. The pattern is created by thought which is the outcome of the past, of your tradition, of your education, of your whole experience based on the past. So, as long as there is any form of compulsion – governmental, religious, or your own pattern which you have created for yourself through your desire to fulfill, to become great – there will be no true freedom. It is not an easy thing to do nor an easy thing to understand what we mean by true freedom. But we can see that as long as there is fear in any form, we cannot know what true freedom is. Individually or collectively, if there is fear, compulsion, there can be no freedom. We may speculate about true freedom, but the actual freedom is different from the speculative ideas about freedom.

So, as long as the mind is seeking any form of security – and that is what most of us want – as long as the mind is seeking permanency in any form, there can be no freedom. As long as individually or collectively we seek security, there must be war, which is an obvious fact, and that is what is happening in the world today. So there can be true freedom only when the mind understands this whole process of the desire for security, for permanency. After all, that is what you want in your gods, in your gurus. In your social relationships, your governments, you want security, so you invest your God with the ultimate security, which is above you; you clothe that image with the idea that you as an entity are such a transient being, and that there, at least, you have permanency. So you begin with the desire to be religiously permanent; and all your political, religious, and social activities, whatever they are, are based on that desire for permanency – to be certain, to perpetuate yourselves through the family or through the nation or through an idea, through your son. How can such a mind which is seeking constantly – consciously or unconsciously – permanency, security, how can such a mind ever have freedom?

We really do not seek true freedom. We seek something different from freedom, we seek better conditions, a better state. We do not want freedom; we want better, superior, nobler conditions, and that we call education. Can this education produce peace in the world? Certainly, not. On the contrary, it is going to produce greater wars and misery. As long as you are a Hindu, Muslim, or God knows what else, you are going to create strife for yourself, for your neighbor, and nation. Do we realize this? Look at what is happening in India! I do not have to tell you because you already know it.

Instead of being integrated human beings, you are thinking separatively; your activities are fractioned, broken up, disintegrated – you're Maharashtra, you're Gujarat, you're Andhra, you're Tamil – you are all fighting; that is the result of this so-called freedom and so-called education. You say that you have unity religiously, but actually you are fighting, destroying each other, because you do not see the whole process of living, because you are only concerned with tomorrow or to have better jobs. You will go out after listening and do exactly the same thing. You will be a Maharashtrian forgetting the rest of the world. As long as you are thinking in those terms, you are going to have wars, miseries, destruction. You will never be safe, neither you nor your children, though you want to be safe, and therefore you are thinking in this narrow, regional way. As long as you have these ways, you have got to have wars.

Your present way of living indicates that you really do not want to have freedom; what you want is merely a better way of living, more safety, more contentment, to be assured of a job, to be assured of your position – religiously, politically. Such people cannot create a new world. They are not religious people. They are not intelligent people. They are thinking in terms of immediate results like all politicians. And you know that as long as you leave the world to politicians, you are going to have destruction, wars, misery. Sirs, please don't smile. It is your responsibility, not your leaders' responsibility; it is your own individual responsibility.

Freedom is something entirely different. Freedom comes into being; it cannot be sought after. It comes into being when there is no fear, when there is love in your heart. You cannot have love and think in terms of a Hindu, a Christian, a Muslim, a Parsee, or God knows what else. Freedom comes into being only when the mind is no longer seeking security for itself, either in tradition or in knowledge. A mind that is crippled with knowledge or burdened with knowledge is not a free mind. The mind is only free when it is capable of meeting life at every moment, meeting the reality which every incident, which every thought, which every experience reveals, and that revelation is not possible when the mind is crippled by the past.

It is the responsibility of the educator to create a new human being, to bring about a different human being, fearless, self-reliant, who will create his own society – a society totally unlike ours because ours is based on fear, envy, ambition, corruption. True freedom can only come when intelligence comes into being – that is, the understanding of the whole, total process of existence.

Question: Modern life has become abjectly dependent on highly trained persons; what are your views on university education? How can we prevent the misuse of higher technical knowledge?

Krishnamurti: Sir, surely it all depends on for what you are being educated. If you are merely being educated to a particular specialized job through university education in which there is no consideration of the total process of existence – which is love, concern for your neighbor, the problem of what is truth, death, envy, the whole problem of life – if you are only concerned with the acquisition of a particular type of knowledge, and not with the problem of life, then obviously you are creating a world of confusion, of darkness, of misery; and then you ask how that can be prevented.

Now, how are you going to prevent it, sirs? How are you and I going to prevent it? Sirs, is it not your responsibility? Or do you say, “It is our karma, we do what we can to live, but life is too much for us,” and leave it at that? Do you not feel this is your responsibility? As parents, do you not feel that the darkness is closing in, deterioration is setting in fast in every human being? Do you not feel that we have ceased to be really creative? Merely painting pictures or being trained to paint them or writing a poem occasionally is not what I mean by creativity. Creativity is something entirely different, and it comes into being when there is no concern or fear of oneself clothed in the form of virtue, or concern for oneself socially, economically, politically. When that concern, that fear ceases, there is creativity.

The understanding of the whole process of thought which builds the 'I', the 'me', and the dissolution of that – is not that true education? And if it is, should not universities help towards that end and at the same time give students the right opportunity to cultivate capacities? But now, we are concerned with the cultivation of capacities, gifts, tendencies to become more and more efficient, and we deny the whole of life which is much deeper, truer, more complex. So it is your responsibility, is it not? Sirs, the individual problem is the world problem. Your problem is the problem of the world. Those problems are not separate from your daily problems. How you live, how you think, what you do will create the world or destroy the world. We do not realize this. We do not see this responsibility, and so we say, “Technical knowledge is bringing about the destruction of man; how can that be prevented?” I will give you the explanation, the manner of doing it, and you will listen and go away, and carry on as usual. So explanations no longer matter; descriptions of theories have no value any more; what is of importance now is that you, as an individual, understand and become responsible for your actions. You are responsible. You and others can, with equal enthusiasm and interest, create a new world. You are to think of the problem anew, not create a new pattern – communist or another religious form.

Real revolution does not come merely at the superficial level, at the economic level. Real revolution lies in our hearts and minds, and it can only come when we understand the whole total process of our being from day to day, in every relationship. And then only is there a possibility of preventing technical knowledge being used for the destruction of man.

Question: Educationists all over the world are troubled by the question of moral education. How can education evoke the deeper core of human decency and goodness in oneself and in others?

Krishnamurti: The good is not the “respectable.” The respectable man can never know what is good. Most of us are respectable, and therefore we do not know what it is to be good. Moral education can only come, not with the cultivation of respectability, but with the awakening of love. But we do not know what love is. Is love something to be cultivated? Can you learn it in colleges, in schools, from teachers, from technicians, from the following of your gurus? Is devotion love? And if it is, can the man who is respectable, who is devoted, know love? Do you know what I mean by respectability? Respectability is when the mind is cultivating, when the mind is becoming virtuous. The respectable man is the man who is struggling consciously not to be envious, the man who is following tradition, he who says, “What will people say?” Respectability will obviously never know what truth is, what good is, because the respectable man is only concerned with himself.

It is love which brings morality. Without love there is no morality. You may be a great man, a moral man; you may be very good; you may not be envious; you may have no ambition, but if you have no love, you are not moral, you are not good, fundamentally, deeply, profoundly. You may have all the outer trimmings of goodness, but if you have no love in the heart, there can be no moral, ethical being. Is love something to be taught in a school? Please follow all this. What is it that prevents us from loving? If you can be taught in the school and in the house to love, how simple it would be, would it not? Many books are written on it. You learn them and you repeat them, and you know all the symptoms of love without having love.

Can love be taught? Please, sirs, this is really an important question; please do follow it. If love cannot be taught, what are the things that are preventing love? The things of the mind, the thoughts, the jealousy, the anguish, the ideas, the pursuits, their suppressions, the motives of the mind – these may be the things that prevent love. And as we have cultivated the mind for several centuries, it may be that the mind is preventing us from loving. So perhaps the things that you are teaching your children and the things that you are learning through universities and colleges may be the things which are at the root of the destruction of love because you are only developing one side – the intellectual side, the so-called technical side – and that is becoming more and more important in an industrial world; other things become less and less valuable; they fade away. If love can be taught in school through books, shown on the screen in cinemas, then it would be possible to cultivate morality. If morality is a thing of tradition, then it is quite simple; then you condition the student to be moral, to be a communist, to be a socialist, to think along a particular line and say that that line is the good line, the true line; any deviation from it is immoral, ending up in concentration camps.

Is morality something to be taught – which means, can the mind be conditioned to be moral? Or is morality something that springs spontaneously, joyously, creatively? This is only possible when there is love. That love cannot exist when you cultivate your mind, which is the very center of the 'me', the 'I', the thing that is uppermost in most of us day in and day out – the 'me' that is so important, the 'I' that is everlastingly trying to fulfill, trying to be something. And as long as that 'I' exists, do what you will, all your morality has no meaning; it is merely conformity to a pattern based on security, for your being something some day, so that you can live without any fear. Such a state is not a moral state; it is merely an imitation. The more a society is imitative, following tradition, the more deteriorating it is. It is important to see this, to find out for oneself how the self, the 'me' is perpetuating itself, how the 'me' is everlastingly thinking about virtue and trying to become virtuous and establishing laws of morality for itself and for others. So the good man who is following the pattern of good is the respectable man, and the respectable man is not the man who knows what love is. Only the man who knows what love is, is the moral man.

— a happy spirit


I need breakfast this is almost finished. (there are a few paragraphs missing) in the middle.

The most excellent book referenced is “Fingerprints of the Gods,” by Graham Hancock. The first time I read it in about a day, and may have been cross eyed for the following week. But in speaking to a mysterious globally omni-quasi-temporarily present and then mysteriously vanished, culture- that appears to have left things everywhere, (to be very general)– but I wonder this instead-

Is he saying really that perhaps:

There is a group not named or generally known, which has installed all that we see infrastructure wise or what have you through space time, but the stuff that makes up our universe, or maybe just solar system? Dunno- you see this goes all over the place, and that to me personally is fine, you maybe not so much? maybe so.. Maybe so. :)

But all of this world and the and associated construction- in space time, that perhaps the they who did these things were not flowing robed tall mysteriously appearing and disappearing robed dudes with white hair teaching culture and logic and how to grow crops, husband animals and so on- but there is more going on here.

I think perhaps what Graham is saying but cannot say directly is similar to this: Perhaps the robed folks are are actually representational avatars for the folks that installed everything everywhere and thats why certain cultures are not allowed to depict God, because that would be god, or God, or so forth, respectfully and with respect.

and, well- it seems the construction is everywhere: . phew but yeah, that's my wonderment, in short-form.

Exhibit A:

> Latin to English English to Latin aether, aetheris #1 noun declension: undeclined Definitions: ether heaven, sky sky (as a god) space surrounding a deity upper air Age: In use throughout the ages/unknown Area: All or none Geography: All or none Frequency: Frequent, top 2000+ words Source: “Oxford Latin Dictionary”, 1982 (OLD)

Because the word is oft an “invisible” weapon more than unifying tool. – If every human realized the power behind the last sentence, and the implications- we would not be living in the world we are living in right now.

There is a definitive echelon to how strong an idea is, by virtue of its construction.

Most people cannot construct a proper argument, much less sort molecular hygiene with their will and product or mode of life, but the best stuff is done exactly with these and other things taken into intentional consideration while creating them.

By deliberately unifying chemistry, physics, geometry, alchemy, and other things- materials science, accurate measurement and best practices with tools machines and so forth – we end up with a very happy object in space time. Well, kind of- but that's another story too.

But as you know, you cannot fit an oil filter from one car into another, and much the same way- if you're designing something it has to fit the function you intend, because on earth- materials have certain qualities and simply will not do certain things, I've never had a breakfast of gaseous eggs and toast, much the same way cars don't levitate. :-p

All of these things though, contributes with the other elements such as materials science, and thus chemistry- to the over all complexity of a design -

because these functional operators must exist for the design to be intentionally permanent – put permanent in quotes and strike into place “more functionally faithful”. I think we have a word for this, “reliable,” no? ;-P

But, a system that follows this kind of aforementioned, typifies the difference between something you will use for years and enjoy- or not even notice it works so well, or it will be a thorn to remove carefully, slowly- etc.

The good systems are unified systems, and they operate in accordance with natural laws of planet earth, that don't care what color or gender you are, or if you have a mask on your face.

That is to say it's a unified system, and operates in accordance with natural law.

Technically though this is incorrect, all aspects of a thing have their own power and quality or qualia about them, and unique characteristics that may be manipulated in the design ~

Whence forth in a new direction either a new feature is formed, a radical departure created, or a wholly new thing drops in- like the story we are told about the microwave, the candy bar and Raytheon employee. . Okay.

But, The character of a thing – what makes up what it is, or how it is, or “how it be,” depending on where you live, I suppose-

The thing shows up in the world radically differently, and the results are noticed by us. We would all do better to stick to more foundational principles instead of getting lost in detail. Why are you even doing a thing? Do you know? Start there.

Hey show up in the world, what it does, how it drives, etc- extrapolate quite a bit on that one in all axial directions to vaguely gauge the realm of possibility we are yet aware of here.

Do this. Imagine a nuclear core of glowing energy, and then have it explode happily out into a void of black space, shooting light and gas and pins and thunderbolts of plasma everywhere. A star is born. We then all got grumpy, then settled earth (it seems, eventually.)

To shorten quite a long story I cannot accurately claim to tell and also expect to take myself seriously.

I think that about sums up the big bang, and well if that's what happened, and the rest grew like bacteria inside a mason jar you forgot outside,

I don't know what else to tell you either it kind of just is the only thing we got, so we go with it and explore.

The truth is as you know- nebulous, but we're all here, and it's all more or less fully inter-woven – if you can see it.

All of it, or perceptually to you, all of it . . . and therein is the mystery- we will never understand the difference between you and me, but we can delude ourselves with words, and belief systems, into thinking we can understand each other. But-

At the same time, we are indeed with similarity, humans, and with plants and animals with DMT molecule similarity among all living things on planet earth, among other things, so the story gets a bit hairy, and complicated, -

but it's beautiful- and worth reading- and well, truly a “shoebox with everything and nothing in it at once” and with no beginning and end, no definite shape to any form of a thing before it is borne or moulded and so on – So just take that to the intellectual bank when mad at your calendar, and go free yourself and do something else-

and that's at least one small thing about reality I find weird. but also indescribably beautiful, what I've been forever altered in perception and life trajectory by having seen anyway of it.

Diverging in a slow parallel arc...

It is not action alone that makes a thing happen, or “intention and meditation and action” or any simple manner of popular trope, however it is simply the correct application of things like geometry, thought and visualization, speech hygiene, electromagnetic , et hoc genus omne, materials selection, etc)

all of it matters. “matters” is drawn to by the above geometry etc thingies- and is drawn to become matter- drawn into form by the magic wand! they're your hands dude.

Then down the line we add more action, and applied iteration, and can then add electricity (fracked off-sputter of reality condensate- that's another story best not understood just yet- collectively the world isn't ready for it),

You give 3d animus constructs without proper full animus, ... life. (Or if you did it right, – Then a really cool neat thing is borne of aether and the various forces that mold and meld and create and and and and , or and and or blah blah ha ha! – ... , or so on.

However- this is not to be overly declarative, the synthetic electronic universe we have created through networked and distributed computing is really quite alive. You cannot pretend it's not and pretend you're sane at the same time.

Anyway, the thing that is missing from most things is a true unification of a harmony in their assembly...

Here's a great example when you do a thing but you know the thing was not finished as well as you could do it- but you said “eh!” and went off.. ? Knowing it would silently fail and you'd just clean it later? We have all tried that once.

That is how most things are made. They don't last because they are actually technically, – incomplete.

Make sure above all else, you are happy and not harming anything in the process (people too). Make and Create, a beautiful day for yourself.

12 hours ago, Mike reminded the world of a very sagacious all encompassing life modulo-

This quote, which is from the Tao Te Ching, a series of treaties written in ancient China on life – as a pretty solid procedural philosophy for day to day dealings, and strategy as parable or similar- for various types of scenarios one may encounter in life.

However, what makes it drastically different from most any modern capitalist or ism or ist type of molded thought, or way of thinking – is it both follows and anthropomorphizes observed natural patterns, into the rules and logic used, and applies that to how one may read and decide to live as such.

Which is very common sense, and hard to argue with.

Instead of procedural and transaction type interactive models, (none of which really are very natural), save a conversation- but the way the Tao Te Ching gets its inspiration is very relatable.

The one tricky thing is the specific words used, or the variance in translations you can find. It's a nebulous vague book as it is, but separate culture, custom, tradition, and the perspective of having been written several thousand years away.

The writing apparently is apparently from roughly around 2,500 B.C.E

(if the writing is as many suns away from the multiple authors pens [it was said to be written by multiple writers over a time period], and the present rising and falling of the bright orange in the sky thing,) – is correct, then the writing is pretty old and may take some time to understand or decode, otherwise you will assume they did a LOT of drugs and sat around talking about rocks and trees and water and stuff. Seriously, this is going to be interesting for you, it's a whole different way of thinking about things.

You can score a free online copy here: (later i put a good one here)

Then we can easily understand that when you read this, you are going to have to sit a LONG time with it, and decode. Perspective and stuff.

But probably by reading it, getting confused, closing the book, leaving, opening it several hours days weeks later and trying again.

But! It was worth it, fascinating and really really interesting to read. Helps make a lot of other connections for other things, without getting into that AT ALL.

> Overall, a frame-work for life based on **nature** and not a * hierarchical taxonomy of blind obedience * ..... and her systems feels very well, - GOOD, and * natural * . Surprised? I'm not. How relaxed are you after you've been a few nights sleep and you're camping? > All that other stuff melts away right?

Shouldn't that be your first clue that it's fully irrelevant to your life, then?

HMMM?! (yes, I'm aware right now at this very moment we live in a blended system as long as we live near other people.)

Thanks Mike.

Good Stuff.

— a happy spirit


Okay so I wrote this before dinner and after working 14 hours straight, so it may be a little rambly and saucy, but in the interest of pushing forward and not needing to re-edit casual writing, I'm just pushing it through the gates .

That in mind whatever is below this line I have not read since my brain came back online. Be cautioned or something? But I'm good natured so you may just find typos and stuff, and paragraphs that should be broken up but aren't.

If things get too exciting, and you think I'm going to fall over while you're reading, that's actually both of us – I should have made a new paragraph, or edited and put a period. But it is also your reaction to my lack of what is typically regarded to as the way and length sentences are structured. I believe there is utility in all forms of communication, although not all are appropriate at all times for the “best fit” to nail the intention, but some will work in multiple ways some not at all, ..... and some really really well.

But that's life. keep trying and tinkering at a thing. you only fail when you begin to look for it... think about that. until you define it as failure, you're literally just observing things about your situation at hand that aren't working exactly how you want them to, and all that means is that now,– more than ever- this is your time to do something about that, so it is remedied to your liking, and you have a new situation on your hands- what you actually want instead of that other box of stuff.

While this isn't at all by any even remotely wild semblance, anything remotely complex, or revolutionary, this I believe is where most people are currently stuck, and most will remain stuck, because they are wrapped up in either details, or feeling bad about the whole thing, and having done the same thing over so many times and to not suceed , well we know it is exhausting. But- there are clear alternatives, and they're even easier than playing that game.

But back to Feng Shui, when trying to think or accomplish anything you need to have full use of your head, and feng shui is basically a way to electromagnetically arrange the flow of a space in such a way that it supports in general the rough archetypes of the concepts in each quadrant- based on the meta genera of the placements, the prima materia in the placements, and so on- but there are other more subtle layers of complexity to it as well, but those are not to be mentioned at this moment. Just that feng shui is not unique to the east, and in fact that

it is a metaphor for electromagnetic hygiene, and a flow diagram – the same way the mayan time wheel is a di-electric di-magnetic representation of the same thing, and the same way the rosicrucian cross or the Plus sign, is the same thing- and even more coded of a symbol- unto the same thematic, because really, it is pretty important- + positive and –, every school kid learns this. Not because they plan on teaching you about electricity, but because they have other ideas.

The psychographic installation of a value system is complete, with the lesson in the first grade about n. volta and the pile cell battery. the rest, only gets more complicated as you begin to accumulate “ologies” through the primary grades onward, culiminating with which ology will you align with? and – its going to come at a price! you have to pay to join our club. otherwise, you can serve our food when we go out to eat, the big money is only available to members of the club. We thought that was clear.

** Well fuck, good thing I'm not after the big money then huh?! **

okay so anyway where were we.... oh yeah, this cool chart as a visual aid of the electric thing, which is important. Remember that for other writings in the future about aether flow and aether dynamics and stuff. fancy talk for where electricity is coming from and understanding it and doing nice things with it.

uh, ok so yeah:

an image about feng shui notice the polarity built into the structure and topically into how each pole of n s e or west is arranged and think about electricity and resistance to the different categories on top of eachother, and in proximity to eachother, and then representationally realize the balance is the fulcrum when the various tasks that ispire various types of real world thoughts and things dovetail with eachother in such a way that it does a thing, and a thing is possibly borne of it, when the balance is correct, when it is not, you get drawn either clockwise or counter clockwise through the themes in the feng shui, predictably based on how your space is balanced in ratio and relationship.

if the furniture could chime in, i wonder how it would describe this. quickly, let us find a 10th century chinese stone pillow and query it.

Feng shui electromagnetism

remember what i said about having a big section in here i didnt check for typos before eating? well i got excited while looking for my feng shui diagram and added about 1,400 words. ;) oops! :D does it matter if your having fun?

So, I'm starting a new “thought module” that may appear as a #meta type thing in any one of my brain fart type publications (erm, what? excuse me? – okay so they always tell you in life-

if uncertain, leading with humor in a social situation is a decent idea right?

.. ba dum, ::facepalm:: /me falls off the stage, breaks elbow, etc. I can think of a friend who did this while performing a live show singing in one of his bands, at a concert venue out there in soCalistan where I reside, but more in the “proper valley” like between winetka and west LA, and slicing very very very narrowly like a knife inbetween and missing a few questionable spots.

Okay but that isnt what this is about- and besides- a demographic doesn't make an area, or actually chose it. ** the way a city is designed generally has more influence on what happens there or who moves in or decides to leave and relocate than almost any other factor on human behavior ** at least, according to this woman Jane Jacobs – who went on to write an absolutely brilliant (i thought,) volume which clearly was the result of aconsiderably interminate and beyond prodigal, – untold volume of research- it's a fantastic piece of work, you really ought to read it if you enjoy the study and analysis of human behavior, but this time with a new twist, the layer of complexity that encapsulates and is modulated by the articulation of ones physical space, and the character of which or lacking in an environment- various elements appear to have insane, dramatic effects, like window placement and length of hallways but others not so much.

I'd just check it out, this post is mostly about a snip coming right up as in here we are:


This is the format, I see something clever on facebook that I felt was really intriguing and or fun or playful or magical or a segue into something else, or an exemplary example of human behavior, I want to cast a smiling light on you and boost whatever the heck it is you did that was so damn awesome-

and the idea is I write a bit about it, and post some primary source “usually just the thing that prompted it,” and a link to the post, or the persons profile in question as well- because awesome is awesome and physics and space time and internet particle accelerator (you're using it),

and and and um, uh uh some other physics and chemistry stuff and well um check one of the other blogs, i have a theory and im probably wrong, but it has to do with plasma and aether and stuff.

its floating around the * synthetic-electro-magnetic-reality-generating-re-electrified-re-worked-plasma-condensate-sourced-from-prima-materia-and-now-powering-a-sort-of-engine-if-you-will-running-on-the-condensate-as-in-a-steering-device, * aka the internet, ;) and um, some stuff-

but please extrapolate. again, what's the difference between good science fiction and reality ? statistically, about 80 years. so no, i am not “on some shit,” or “on some black dole project banannas,” but i do a pretty goddamn good job of observing stuff, and playing with patterns.... its kind of what i do.

^ like this is a very much three or six paragraphs condensed into 4 sentences, 2 of which are run ons, and then thoughts so dense each should be several paragraphs at least- > but that is the issue with this kind of writing. so often, you will see me saying things like but we'll have to talk about this another time. and im serious but have no idea when.

so if something fascinates you and chronologically its okay within the larger context of things spoken quietly then sure yes! it can be discussed at more length of a request by a reader or contributor here, or

integrated into a prompt and discussed on

https://the-mind-unchained.club =)

absolutely! or something similar. or just discussed.

and now, the main event that inspired me to ponder briefly spatial dynamics of a room and aetheric discharge as within the context of the resident creator and their makerspace, aka dwelling aka hobbit hole, aka apartment etc, off grid, – duh. so Lori was talking to Jenny, and I just liked the conversation and the general yeah. Okay bye :) It has been a long day, do not hold me accountable for being silly and good natured, you already know thats what I did,

but this is super nice because it is not uh, the same format as facebook, and this is a place for writing, i mean i dont know that all of you caught onto this but the software running this blog is a brilliant thing in development you should check out called write.as. this is also simultaneously cross posed to a community of readers and authors called read.writeas.com , which is insanely cool. you should check it out and consider joining. by you i mean anyone reading this on facebook or via way of Lori's facebook page. the main site is https://write.as

.

as overheard on facebook:

Jenny Lefebvre i was thinking when i read that how it would translate because organizing thangs and stuffs into new local timespace vorticies is really quite a fun thing, innit   but i think the automagic touch of me or you divinating through all of loris things reading her wishes out of the aether as to where things need to magically fly- with actual verbal input of course too , especially if it is heavy hahah.. but yeah, decorating and organizing both and the associated feng shui or pick a name for the aether dynamics of a room and how it does or doesnt accumulate orgone and the rest of a living space, has a studied, documented, and insane effect on ones health and overall everrything.

apparently i have little disregard for my spelling when I type a comment i thinks too damn quick. so then i use the spell check and i appear to yeah. but sometimes i write very slowly, for myself, or by myself. there is a certain frenetic tick about facebook, and i do very well to temper it, however sometimes a split approach is fun briefly. let its neurochemistry do its thing but do not ascribe any special sauce to it, realizing they just really want your damn eyeballs glued to the website, app and instagram all day and it is about as complex,

  • oh, and they are still trying to correctly internally assign “Wish” a proper market vertical in their quarterly demographic sales and analysis reports, but that can wait, I don't even think the people at wish know where the fuck they're working, or what it actually is intended to convey to the public- in general- as an overall thematic brand concept, other than “this is theweirdest, most offensive thing i've ever seen, and it looks like extra crap from slave labor stuff that was re imagined together while on opiates or something, and trying to stave off a fatal mid life breakdown from being over worked and under appreciated, etc- life sucks a lot often, and its stuff like this im hoping to empower people enough to be strong enough mutually as bundles of sticks that are friends than have to suffer a shitty incorrigable job and die early because nobody realized in actions and words that we really do all collectively already have, as a BASIS- more than enough, and from there- the rest figures itself out as we begin working out new ways of doing things better together instead of apart.

I came to change the world, but my whole life ive been scared of it, you know damn well why. Well, they know high well I'm not against them, and I'm not even interested. I do have a healthy and insane respect for the level of organization and implementation they're capable of, it's beyond insane in how tactically accurate it is, but then again- whatever, thats not the point either. I'm not for or against most anything, that is not an endorsement above, to be clear of the big white box in wa wa wa by the potomac river. but it is a clear acknowledgement and hat tip to how goddamn intelligent their operation is, and to be clear- what i mean is i'm not trying to start a cult, there is nothing to worry about. LOL

I am starting a meta network, that embodies all manner of principles of design, but one of which is articulate and agile contextually aware and appropriate emotional human expression – and I believe fully this can be a part of the design of a software suite designed to be a website portal and organizational/meta modular system by which you can easily do great many things and connect with a large or small or one person- over specifically tuned and articulated needs- and have the software reason as a human, but not take over, unless you ask it to, and then it can even ask you if it tweaked your news feed properly after a few days, or what have you – but dont even in your worst fears compare this to any current social media algorithm on the internet.

in software terms algorithm just means math that organizes and filters stuff, and then what the results end up being are in general the public does not understand how computer software works. so then, they ascribe almost like when aesop was orating his fables, how things that did not normally speak had life and anima, well like that- but with websites having the ability to filter down search results. see, a critical difference between what i am talking about and what is currently out there is so hard to understand because of this next thing:

what this is that i am working on, is not a first order transformation from one set of data and expectations to find a specific product on amazon for example- this is a multi generational, highly tuned to the user , thing that actually adapts over time NOT by itself, but only by weighting more heavily things the user does more regularly and when the user bookmarks them , and with full transparency as assigned by the user with control over how much weight and the full operator set to the equations used for the algorithm, but in simple plug and play web style boxes like filling out a form, – and then you get YOUR version of what you want the thing to be like.. and then it gets even more complexly personal, because there are things I simply will not speak about publicly, going on here, but I just wanted to whet your mental whistle before you went to sleep, if you are a night owl and in the state of california, i mean the state of creativity,, i mean we're all nuts and fruit out here on the left coast- beware.

but you're probably using a computer designed by us, and a phone designed by a friend of a friend 5 or so degrees apart, that kevin bacon shit is weird man.. !

and so we're nuts out here, yeah okay. you all are kinda weird too with your snow and shit, but we put up with you because we're siamese twins.

kidding, i love everyone seriously,even assholes but i just leave those alone, because they need to ripen, dry out and crack open etc all on their own- i've got people that need my well meaning help, and two ears to take their feedback which is really what fuels this entire thing,

so speak up if you're ever reading along... omar@ideamissing.com or

this is a far fetched, eh does anyone still use irc?

i run a server..

irc.uncoiled.org

two ports the ol standby 6667 an then we got the ssl start tls port 6697. ive got #chat and #nile and a few others going, but as per irc /list works, there is a full anope suite and memo serv, and well gosh its such a great tool for collaboration. it will be a part of the realized network, you could have guessed that already.

also, i hope matt agrees, but at some point when my idea is more written out, or whenever he organically crosses paths with the stuff i am shooting out all over the place, it will be interesting to see what he feels about write as having a huge role in it, and or if he is indeed doing what i think he's doing ad probably trying to solve a part of or the same set of or the whole quanta and associated undesired qualia (math and circumstance, the character and final output), respectively loosely specifically- and trying to create .. something that will be of use, in a data saturated environment driven by short sighted capitolism and no clear innovation to solve a problem that has been extant since the advent of crossing a boundary where it was even possible to create a full set of data worth of a human brain....and have everyone interact with it... and then fill it up,... and run out of ipv4 numbers.....and move to version 2.0 of the brain, firing it up and wiring it in... well, like i said before, im not against anyone, in fact i think i am solving likely if this gets done properly and by i i mean not i i mean i colloquially how people write when theyre tired adn trying to tell a story out loud,

that kind of “i” because this is collaborative. the “i” is just me the monkey who has an interesting idea and knows it can only be built with the help of a lot of other monkeys, but to just tell the monkeys he talks to that his project is only for the good of all the monkeys and isnt actually even trying to make money specifically, although parts of the project may connect people to opportunities to make money in their local areas either in jobs or skills or trade or barter or etc

which brings me to the whole point of this entry. if you read along you actually like reading or really love what im talking about. this is your thank you and please scroll to the bottom and subscribe by email, and i do want to hear from you, odds are there are things you want to contribute to the project, and they are welcomed with open ears and mind.

http://willyoutrade.me is part of the network,. and so is willtrade.org

barter and trade, skills etc – elective agreements honored and met by discussion and accountability, a site rating , an opportunity to resolve if needed before rating has a star by it, or you know, its all in the air and in written documents and diagrams, feel free to modify this if you have a more efficient way and tell me why dont just say mine is better i will ignore you on purpose even if it is better. just say yo! i got this thing see, and then lay it out.

okay over and out, ive got a film to watch, it has been a very good day, but every day is- its a choice you get to make. and a commitment to yourself.

I'm a strong willed tenacious person that dares to dream ,and is here to listen and help!

Who are you?

thanks! Omar

Are you familiar with the Seth Books? “ ” It's hard to describe a body of work like this, but they're really quite exceptional.

but later down in here,

** enmeshment. * ...* ** aether, non locality and you. ** or how your idea gets to somebody else once you've already had it but don't know them or are anywhere near them or even wrote about it anywhere, and they have your idea, how does this work in plain english version? :) Yeah that.

[ I will have to try and explain a bit about the seth books, i will find mine and make some quotes :)

They are complicated books and I do not want to mess with you by saying otherwise. :–)

seth painting by jane roberts

I sometimes do that while I am inventing or moving through iterations of a thing in my head, as this saves a lot of effort and paper.. and the details fill themselves in from my source of self anyway-

this year I finally decided to de-embrace the continued supposition of any illusion i was fully linear only and am working into an easy presentation style for the self, which amounts to not having to do anything. I just arrive and move about, doing this and that. No pomp, no circumstance, no conditionality.

Bye bye linear semblance. Hello true mode, which is blended everything – reality is not ... eh this is not the post for me to get started on that. :)

But I still am compatible with traditional working styles and project management styles and all that stuff I just prefer to over-archingly-visualize and approach the way I solve the linear problems, in my own methodologies and systems, which are highly extensible, adaptable, and dont really describe well other than that.

** oh, read the seth books, damnit- they're great. **

I still work with goals and milesones, and some level of overlap with others (some meetings) on a calendar, but mostly i just sit at my desk, and do what comes to my fingertips, the text editor stores notes i save by the day and just look at it once in a whie if i need to write an inspration down, but it feels a lot like what seth said, and i read in this book that quote comes from if i recall properly-

  • ramble ramble *

a thing is not a thing until you see it in your head fully, then feel it, and shoot out into actions that make the thing begin to take form, or in some cases instantly, just maybe not in front of YOU.

The non locality of an idea is intriguing like that, and most people are fascinated to find out that all analog television broadcasts are bouncing around the atmosphere.

Several times in my life, I have designed an invention to solve a problem I had. I would draw it out on paper, and make a diagram with labels and a few sentences talking about what each thing did, and then flip the paper over and write the problem it solved on the other side in the corner, along the bottom- and estimate just enough margin to write the thing, and terminate in the bottom corner with the last word.

(highly symbolic.)

eventually, each one of these ideas became a product on the open market in short short time (inside of half a year, with regularity.) so I stopped, and just kept them in my head, except for a few things that I really wanted to see out there, like a bottle for single use food and beverage, to replace supermarket containers, and water bottles. I designed a lot of these, and even built prototypes. Now, I see after 14 years, at least 12 companies doing their own version of my design – each a little differently -

but this is how non locality works- if you put the idea out just pefectly, it just has to take perfect form once in one head, and then be dwelled on, and dreamt about by someone with the correct skillset (or they're very passionate, young and just leaking everywhere), but it is possible to be very passionate, biologically old, and if with enough practice, you can bring things into creation like a sorceress or wizard but for good! and with the agility and discipline of your experiential prowess at your behest and command.
