 Have recently rediscovered The Wisdom Paradox by Elkhonon Goldberg  – Clinical professor of neurology. With that it seems that over the past four years I have unwittingly pursued a path toward cognitive improvement.  As a layman, my intention was only to provide new concepts in language that I considered would be useful to delay the ravages of Alzheimer’s disease that my wife had suffered from, and, if useful, for professionals to run trials.
In Chapter 14 of  The Wisdom Paradox  there is reference to the fact that as humans we can reproduce,or improve, sections of our organs which includes our brain. Apparently that is best done by forms of exercise suited to the particular action of the individual. My particular form of exercise is redefining concepts without dichotomies.
Will always remember this chapter number, the age I was when I left school in Glasgow.
It should be said that at this point I will freely use whatever material that is available legally, and ethically, to promote my efforts to highlight the subject of Alzheimer’s disease.
At 89 years of age (well past my used by date) it may well be that I am a candidate with a focus on my own pending dementia. If so, then the theory and the method I write about is holding it at bay. To address the health of my mind in this way could be the catalyst that retains its own functional activity.
The only reason I can write about consciousness is that I, like all of humanity, have it. It’s existence became more of a reality for me because of my wife’s illness, and the slow and inevitable decline of her consciousness via Alzheimer’s disease.
The Wisdom Paradox is a book for all readers.

This is not a blog for entertainment purposes, but I have endeavoured to  lighten the mood.

My decision to finally address the subject of my wife’s dementia and its inevitable progression was not driven by the fear of its existence but to at least challenge myself in the hope that anything I can do may offer the scientific profession a new path to explore. (See the About section on my home page.)

My direction can only ever be general with regard to the deterioration that inevitably takes place in our mind. The value of primary principles in our language structure may provide the tools to retard that deterioration.
Curiously and interestingly, my brain function in certain areas has dimmed with age, but in pursuing this particular project there is no diminution of purpose. Certainly my body is showing significant signs of the ageing process, and it will take its inevitable course.
Having lived first hand with a mind deteriorating, I can claim the emotional right to propose a new theory that may offer some information to promote a research project.
The matter of language and dichotomies has had a long historical pedigree and its proper use can only ever be to improve our understanding of it, and its free dissemination.
Unlike Dylan Thomas’s admonition to his father ‘to rage,rage against the dying of the light’ I will, against previous existential beliefs, take a peaceful road toward a real, or imaginary world, where Jean waits with her arms unfurled to welcome me in her new world of higher consciousness.

Let’s find out!

 The theory and the process throughout is to introduce the possibility that we can think in a  new way, through the potential construction of a language, without dichotomies.

The idea of absolutes is not something new. (Heraclitus (fl.C.500 B.C.E.) categorized them as the “unity of opposites”.

The object of this exercise is simply to point to a common peculiarity of language – namely that there exist dichotomies that we accept as being real.
 Whenever an absolute, constant or placeholder is established (that which is) then in conjunction with all other established absolutes and defined by each contemporary, there can be a distinct improvement in cognitive awareness of their meaning. This also establishes human experience as a relative condition, as it were in a spectrum, describing each moment in time.
That distinction permeates a side of us beyond our senses, and we may have the privilege of experiencing a new reality. The resulting process of binding absolutes to define ‘what is”.

When we view them as only being a spectrum construct of any principle, then we are left with something that I feel is best described by definition, as an absolute.
Somewhere in time the introduction and acceptance of dichotomies (opposites)  has had the effect of diluting, or contradicting  our reality and its conceptualization.We can never be disconnected from ancestral history. In finding quotations which I use extensively, it is vital that we use them not just for their popularity, but for the implicit wisdom, and the writers experiences that generated their appearance.
They are part of our overall consciousness, and there is an obligation to use them the best way we can. Disseminating that information can only have add-on beneficial consequences. To date I have received no objections to my use of archived material in the “free to use” non-commercial domain, and I always pay due respect and attribution for their valuable contribution.

The man whose book is filled with quotations, has been said to creep along the shore of authors, as if he were afraid to trust himself to the free compass of reasoning. I would rather defend such authors by a different allusion, and ask whether honey is the worse for being gathered from many flowers. Anonymous, quoted in: Tryon Edwards (1853) The World’s Laconics: Or, The Best Thoughts of the Best Authors. p. 232
Amen to that!

The theory of evolution was posited by two naturalists Darwin and Wallace circa 1850, based solely on their observation of the diversity of every manifestation of life available to them. Such theories are not products to be owned or merchandised, but only if they are true, to be utilized for the continuing preservation of the species, and this planet.
The term ‘commonality’ used throughout this text relates specifically to our species, the functionality and basic properties we all have in common to survive. Identifying those can give us a ‘common meeting ground of agreement’, whoever you are, wherever you are. Our commonality is not an ideological term that excludes the reality of each personality. It distinctly and evidently establishes all forms of relationship where individuality contributes its measure of interdependence, and interconnectedness.
Human consciousness can only thrive in an environment that will procreate its existence through recognition of others. Its evolution and mankind’s existence are constantly intertwined.

Life’s miracles.
Miracles only exist within the collective impressions of human experience.
Our normal life cycle is the compound of a series of extraordinary events that reaches for its own normality. Within that normality, reason – knowledge, and consciousness are its expression. That combination of events allows us to proceed through our life span.
They are the products of an egalitarian process shared by all human life.

My extraordinary event!

Recently, I was urgently admitted to a hospital cardiac unit to undergo a cardiac angiogram.
Was advised that angioplasty and stents may be part of the procedure. The alternative would be by-pass surgery. The procedure was over in a very short time, and quite painless.
Later the surgeon explained that although I had two blocked arteries there was no need for any surgery as my heart had created its own by-pass artery. It appears that our heart has the ability to sense that arteries are being blocked, and can engineer an embryonic new artery  to compensate. Why that happens to some and not others, is a question I’m sure biologists are asking – and so am I!

Bridie.(circa 1995)

The short piece of poetry above is the result of a night of disturbed sleep and jangled dreams, which culminated in a scribbled version, very early in the morning.
Shortly after I had completed the poem I had a cognitive experience of certainty of knowledge that “everything is”. A very sharp contrast to the content of the poem.
The poem posed a myriad of questions, while the cognition seemed in a way to offer up answers to the questions.
For some years now I have attempted to formulate these subjective experiences into an objective form that makes some sense to their existence.
I’d rather it was “easier” for me to express my views, but using the spectrum model as I do to describe our relationship to dichotomies is the best I can do, as I am not a poet, academic, scientist, metaphysician, mathematician, nor a writer.

 Everything is. No form of Space – Time – Energy or Matter is independent.  Everything that is, is interdependent and interconnected.
 In spite of the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle our sensory preceptors seem to handle those concepts very well.
All life lives within an absolute spectrum in relation to space-time-energy-matter. That spectrum knows no dichotomies. We can for instance have the spectrum pendulum swing from hot to cold but the basic absolute at the hub of the pendulum is temperature.

The statement “everything is”, is logically irrefutable as it is a simple statement of fact.
Ipso facto everything that is, is absolute.
Everything that is, is subject to the same laws of space – time – energy – matter, basic absolutes. They in fact seem to form the basic structure of all knowledge that exists.

We move on to look at the principles that seem to form the greater part of our existence.
Principles that are so evidently true that it requires no academic knowledge to understand the important part they play in our lives.
If there is a principle, then it is well established. We constantly live in a reality that is best served by the good use of the principles we find – that seems clear. Ipso facto ‘everything’ that exists in our reality has a certain principle as its source.

An elementary universal truth in any experience can become the established reality e.g., Archimedes principles. We develop principles when they are understood, and used. They then enter the commonality of life to ensure their proper establishment.
The principle of leverage throughout history has become an embedded constantly used and constantly modified principle in every sphere of our lives.
We use principles that appeal to our commonsense and reason that are true, and basically they become a universal functionality always available. They become the placeholders that form part of our consciousness.

Placeholders edict.                                                                                            The most compelling human interest is in knowing who ‘we are’.
Hypothetically if any individual was born in a cocoon in dark outer space, then identity would be impossible.
Our only source of recognition lies in relation to all and everything that exists, especially to other forms of life as we know it.

………………………………………………

The debate Absolute vs. Relativism is a non sequitur given the spectrum model in relation to dichotomies. We can find an easy equivalence to both issues that makes the debate irrelevant.
Everything is, and everything that is, comes within the spectrum model. All evidence then is complementary. Every dichotomy – every paradox can then take their proper place to provide attribution.
Taking for granted any state of life (a form of sleep-walking) is an embedded challenge to constantly question the essence of each moment.
Embedded information although necessary for personal construction, provides its own limitation beyond which it is difficult to experience.
Redefining that limitation is our greatest need, and we evolve accordingly within our common structure until we can offer a suitable means to move on.

Imperative observations equates to paying attention, and in this context specifically towards absolutes and principles in language.
Their constant dependency, and replication, can act in a fashion similar to a double helix, where interdependence and interconnection must take place. Perhaps a slight deviation from professional ‘linear thinking’ advocates.Media Google double helix images Whenever an absolute or constant is established (that which is) then in conjunction with all other established absolutes and defined by each contemporary, there can be a distinct improvement in cognitive awareness of their meaning. This also establishes human experience as a relative condition, as it were in a spectrum, describing each moment in time.
That distinction permeates a side of us beyond our senses, and we may have the privilege of experiencing a new reality. The resulting process of binding absolutes to define ‘what is”.
Thus a child  is born with health, a natural construct, and can live a life with varying degrees of health, somewhere in the spectrum, with no division, or contradiction.

A conversation.

Yellow parakeet: “That’s fairly profound what Einstein’s saying”
Blue          ”        : “I think it’s all about their sense of connectivity, and interdependence, which is low in their consciousness scale. Raising consciousness – elevation – is not a contradiction to linear evolution.
Disseminating the idea of interdependence is money in the bank. Once       they realize how commercially viable it will be they will embrace every
corner of the globe.

Yellow      ”     :    “Why would that be”?
Blue         ”           ” Elevated consciousness paradoxically leads to a levelling out of people into productive spaces allowing them to create and innovate, and naturally relate to the common good, because the principle interdependence is recognized, and the planet will thrive with their joint industry!
The waking up process always requires the germ of an idea!

Yellow     ”         :   “Do they have that consciousness”?
Blue         ”         :   “The miracle of their life is that consciousness for them is infinite.
It’s availability lies in the ideas they have”.

Principles.

The Weeping Philosopher

Heraclitus. The Weeping Philosopher of Ephesus. Circa (535 BCE)

Utrech_moreelse_heraclite.jpg
Wikipedia.
Heraclitus wept for the needless unconsciousness of mankind.
If Heraclitus was alive today he would weep an ocean of tears.

The proposition being that the panoramic phenomena of Mankind were unfortunately disposed toward a life that precluded them needlessly from a state of consciousness beyond their experience.
Heraclitus’s particular insights we can presume, were partially initiated by his intense interest in language composed of “pairs of opposites”.
He seemed also, to come very close to saying that there are no dichotomies when he proffered that there was a “unity of opposites”, and that there distinction was only one of difference.
The contagious effect of thinking that there is a “unity of opposites” has carried the mythology to date. The term seems simply to be a misnomer, compounded by another simpler “category mistake” which lends itself to the dilemma he faced.                                     See illustrations of “category mistakes”.  (The Concept of Mind, Gilbert Ryle, p,17).

Heraclitus and his “unity of opposites” was displaying an adherence to “category mistakes”.
Simply put, if you are alive then you have a measurable degree of health, somewhere in the spectrum scale of health. That irrefutable conclusion leaves no room for”category mistakes”.

It is preferable if we could turn our attention to the unity of principles that are the construct of every language we use. By uniting the principal terms we can elevate the meanings we desire. Reasonable constructs and the duality of established principles always lead toward meaning. It is the only form of meaning that leads to its own extension – how else could it be?                                                                                                                                All principles (placeholders) have reciprocal value one to the other. No foundation principle can stand alone. They can only exist in union, one with the other, the source of reciprocity.

“Do you contemplate your future?”

28 March 2016.

Placeholder.
Our future depends on our ability
to recognize and be awake to the true
principles that formulate our lives.

Within each timeline we have the potential to discover the terms of the associative functionality we must share, to be alive at all.
As an organism which produces the innate genetic physical structures in all their prolific diversity, the question of space – environment, and life-giving services has become an observable urgent problem.

A linguistic platform without dichotomies has its own failsafe security necessity.
All definitions within its structure relate to activity that can only be beneficial for human interaction, with lasting intentions. Its basic purpose is to make available the tools to build reasonable definitions
It cannot be designed, or misused, for any individual gain.
It is a means of freeing up locked in divisive concepts by disseminating new linguistic constructs that go beyond conventional ways of thought, and provide new cognitive experience.
Taking time to look at the critical links our personal existence needs (no matter how mundane they may appear) can lead to acquiring more energy to focus on what we must use to act with more understanding. That focus is the exercise our mind can only benefit from as we age. The source of our sustenance lie in existing successful principles that are universal, and always available to expand our human consciousness.

Aesop’s Fables (c.620BC – c.560BC) The Hare and the Tortoise.

A contemporary interpretation could be applied in relation to our understanding of evolution. Evolution which proceeds at a pace beyond our consciousness level. The human species seem to be in a race outside their natural abilities, and if we take the message of the fable, that race is doomed to failure. Turn to the Tortoise!

“Are there separate reality experiences?”

7 April 2016

Placeholder.
When communicating, know what the truth is, and amplify its existence.

The whole picture with regard to our sensory receptors seems not to be as exclusive as individualized experiences. Generally speaking there seems to be massive accord that does not depend on individual opinion.
It would appear to suggest that there is a form of certainty readily recognizable by the normal function of human sensory receptors.
Everything that is, is in perfect synchronicity in that everything ages all at the same time.
Everything that is, at any moment in time has its own share of space, no more no less.
That large commonality of factual knowledge seems to have no active displacement of our experience of reality.
In essence our experience of our reality must be a consciousness act of unification of the whole.Our sensory receptors seem to act in concert with others to give us a stabilized reality.
Our curiously sensitive sensory receptors are curious because our species generally accept an apparent equality of human  experience. We recognize in common, schools, universities, hospitals, cities, in fact the continual evolution of this planet’s history, including wars, crime, corruption.
Recognition that belies the experimental science of our sensory receptors.

Truth.

Language is the construct of human action and the word “truth” seems to hold pride of place by the power of its usage and the meanings it evokes.
It is preferable if we could turn our attention to the unity of principles (including truth) that are the construct of every language we use. By uniting the principal terms we can elevate the meanings we desire. Reasonable constructs and the correct duality of established principles always lead toward meaning. It is the only form of meaning that leads to its own extension eg. how to weigh metals – how else could it be?                               All principles (placeholders) have reciprocal value one to the other. No foundation principle can stand alone. They can only exist in union, one with the other, the source of reciprocity.
All absolutes are universal. There is no hierarchy beyond the meanings they evoke  in their joint construction. The binary connotations, however one may express them, provide a constant reality beyond conventional consciousness. That experience is the immediate reward through disciplined application of their use. That discipline takes the form in all human action (such as the bathing scene above) disposed toward the correct functionality of basic principles.
The daily connections we make always include the distinct possibility of their recognition, when we make those connections in a mindful state.

“Principles – what are they”?

 

 

22 April 2016.

Placeholder.
Recognize all the principles available to your
sensory receptors. That’s paying attention!

Principles. What are they?

Answer: Principles are the fundamental source of truth we constantly use
to elevate our consciousness level. Their common multiplicity is
the measure of their acceptance. We function within their available
presence, externally and internally. They form the basis of our reason.
Bridie’s definition.

You did ask!

See below.

Picture a home.

Shelter. Courtesy of Google 'free to use images"

Shelter.
Courtesy of Google ‘free to use images”

 

Design. No matter how humble, every home must have a basic structure.
It’s foundation to build on. Walls, roof, doors, all the measurements required
to accommodate them, perhaps also the luxury of glass and windows.

Security. Your home provides a strong measure of security that you can depend on.                                No wolf could “huff and puff” enough, to blow it down.

Comfort. It will provide comfort and warmth when needed.

Stability. It’s existence alone can have a stabilising effect

Certainty. It’s visibility is of a reality you created.

Peace. A place to retire, to end the day’s labor

Location. It is where you are at, in every way.

Association. It communicates the measure of strength and                                                                                 determination required to build it.

Support. All of the above.

Principles as presented to our sensory receptors are simple in themselves. We take them for granted. When we place them in a binary model ( see the double helix reference on the home page) they can go beyond our sensory receptors and into a consciousness mode (cognition). That meaning and expression is defined by those who experience it.

imagine they don’t take their level floors for granted.

A level floor is the result of a binary principle – correct measurement.

This of course took me more than a few months to build.:)

How dependent are you?

9 May 2016

Placeholder.

Successfully discovering a new source of dependency
always has a collaborative extension.

Try making a list of just how dependent you are on everything that is!
Use a simple dictionary and compile a list of primary terms eg, Intellect –
Responsibility – Relationship – Sustenance  etc,.                                                                                  Use the binary connectors that act like a double helix to extend their meaning and we have, not a “unity of opposites” to quote Heraclitus, but a new unity of “primary terms” we evidently depend on.                                                                                                                              The Holy Grail.
There will be thousands of primary terms available to transpose. Within their unity and their double helix process, new meanings will emerge. In an educational environment the process would be productive.
We all have our own personal conscience and psychology that goes with it.
Today we seem to understand that there is a shared consciousness and that everyone has the potential to collectively contribute, and share.. Back again to history, to Archimedes and Heraclitus, whose contributions to our shared consciousness are well documented.
We always depend on the ability of our brain (any brain) to rise above itself (cognition), and provide new developmental insights that become part of our shared consciousness.

The above presentation gives us pause to think where our natural dependency may lead us.

That dependency “factor” symbolized by our belly button where so much dependency was needed via that umbilical cord, has far-reaching connections to the past, the present, and our future. So keep gazing at your navel!
No one can be independent – it is a myth! Everything that is, is interdependent and interconnected. We all come from the same planet! You, the wondrous rat above, and I.

Have we a curiosity deficit?

Curiosity is finding historical knowledge
and realizing its importance today.

Heraclitus’s excruciating dilemma, and sorrow, appears to have been that in the  language we use, he had found what was to him the Holy Grail. Would imagine that with his interest in language it provided him with insights of a new unity of human consciousness that could be available.
What was not available to Heraclitus was a world-wide audience, but presumably only an
élite section of the populace who could read at whatever level, thus limiting the human trait of “curiosity” to explore his philosophy. That exploration would eventually have concluded there were no dichotomies.
It was not the “unity of opposites” (to quote Heraclitus) that prescribed the Holy Grail but the “unity of primary terms”. Primary terms that had the potential to transform individual reality into a new form of consciousness thought, whose prescription was for the natural welfare of human consciousness.
His “Holy Grail” today would have the reciprocal effect of one using the binary principles
to search for some form of cognition, and apply the extending principle recognized to confirm the theory. This effect will translate to any language using the same terms, and in any educational environment can be productive.
The irrevocable elements of Space – Time – Energy – Matter are the foundation elements of everything that exists in the natural world.
Everything should be measured by the existing principal term, then we can deal with that level of certainty. Think historically of how little Archimedes et al had to deal with. Think of how far that measure of certainty has brought us, and how we depend on it.

I strongly reject any conceptual scheme that places our options on a line, and holds that the only alternative to a pair of extreme positions lies somewhere between them. More fruitful perspectives often require that we step off the line to a site outside the dichotomy.’ Stephen Jay Gould. ( Paleontologist. Evolutionary biologist.Historian of Science.)

Something exciting is happening!!

Discover positive principles that
create our reality. That reality is always an
ascending future dimension in our evolution.

Despite debates about The Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle 1927 (the year I was born) and it’s veracity or otherwise, I am only able to question the terminology used to describe a quantum theory. Instead of ‘principle’ would the term ‘diversion’ be more appropriate?
There are schools of thought that bring our reality experiences into question, and the consciousness we use to experience their existence.
The only reason we can apply principles is that they are logically established, recognized, and the result of that is, we constantly use them, including I’m sure, all correct theories of quantum physics.
Where there are principles (correct theories) there is certainty. They provide the reason for multitudinous common-sense activity, which translated in any community makes sense of what is common to us all. It has already been said in my Home page, that curiously, the sensory receptors of Homo sapiens seem to be remarkably accurate in universally acting in concert with the various functions required for civilized societies to survive.
Our evolutionary advantage is that language with all its complexities has already been created.

 A necessary reason of our lives, is the use of language to communicate the relationship we have with each other, and our understanding of that action.
Our conscious understanding will be collectively diminished by the apparent separateness of race, nationality, tradition, and beliefs that exist. Categories that demand our constant attention.
The contemporary need is to correlate human consciousness, utilise observable categories, and meld them into an enlightened recognized construction of the whole. Universal meaning lies within the use of language without dichotomies, whatever language is used. Semantic translation without dichotomies will have the beneficial effect of finding common agreement, clarity of reason, and the release of historical embedded impediments.
The exercise of uniting principal terms without dichotomies is imperative to break down crystallized concepts that are counter productive to individuals, and societies. Their effect would not be the changing of what is, but the experience of seeing reality as it is.
Writing about the existence of dichotomies in language is not unprecedented. Heraclitus (c.535-c.475 BC) made them apparent in historical philosophy.

Mindfulness semantics operate through you with their own agenda. Their binary properties and subsequent definition are of a dimension outside our conscious awareness.
Mindfulness and healing are co-existent, and their activity is not personal property that function within the realms of our space-time-energy-matter domains. Look upon the practice of mindfulness as a social contribution whose effects may take their own manifestation.
The double helix effect of mindfulness semantics is infinite, and adds beneficially to our collective consciousness.
Personal benefit comes with the realization that change of being has taken place, and our functionality has developed We evolve. Let it be.
Create your own semantic template guide. It is an invaluable tool.
Given the remarkable talk below, maybe semantics and their real value is beginning to bear fruit.
In a way I find some validation to the stuff I write.
