Re: Measures and Motions

Thanks for the reply Tulan!
I'm going have to work on figuring out how to understand things from that system-frame, because I haven't figured out how to adjust myself to that frame (mathematical/RS2, etc).

Re: Measures and Motions

In trying to understand t/s and s/t I've translated them as: space = place time = moment so: s/t = place determines the moment (spatial 'law' overrides temporal 'law') t/s = moment determines the place (temporal 'law' overrides spatial 'law') 1) Should those phrases read "Spatial law overrides tempo...

Re: Measures and Motions

Here's a Modular system i've been working on: A basic notion for artists when learning to figure draw is to proportion the length of a body 8x the length of the head, chin to top. This is an 'aesthetic' approach to modulating proportion and might be considered 'beautiful'. If we take a very general ...

Measures and Motions

This references posts in this post. Right now I'm just going to post all this information together in one post and take time to review and sort/organize it to see if there maybe something linking them together. My imagination is somewhat bubbling with all these concepts/ideas in proximity. I. Abstra...

Re: Shadow and its options

As for the shadow-character offering a choice to the protagonist, I've come to see that not as an 'integration of the shadow', but as the function of the shadow-personality itself. We can choose (accept/reject) or not-choose (ignore) and the shadow-personality is the repository of the ignore categor...

The legalization is orange, the main opposition coming from Blue wavers and their world view, while Greens see the po...

Re: Gay Marriage and Meme-Shift

In reading 'Theory of Everything' i've been making my own maps (as usual). I'm working on a map in which there are four typical levels to a human being (physical/biological/mental/spiritual), 4 quadrants (I/it/we/they), and the 8 initial vMemes: archaic (might) - magical(order) - mythic might - myth...

Re: Gay Marriage and Meme-Shift

Green? Isn't "marriage" a religious institution (Blue vMeme, truth force)? I see it as being a growth into the Blue vMeme. Many religious leaders are afraid of gay marriage because they are afraid of their own Animus, embracing the "truth" of the Animus (it doesn't stop at Blue though!). Also note ...

Gay Marriage and Meme-Shift

Over this Thanksgiving holiday I had lots of travel time to read and so I cracked open Ken Wilber's 'Theory of Everything'. This is helping me personally integrate the SpDy perspective into my own life but also assisting me in a evaluating large-scale social activity in terms of the memes. Gay marri...

Film: District 9

Not sure if this is the correct location to drop this topic. I just viewed the film 'District 9' by Peter Jackson and found it very very provocative as a 'hypothetical' study. I'll save more for after others have viewed the film and have a chance to digest. It is a fantastic film and could definitel...

Re: Purpose of Feelings!

Hi Snetu, I'll paraphrase something I wrote in another thread. Feelings are different than emotions, and that has to be discerned first. Emotions are kind of archetypal, they sit in the most intelligent place of the body which itself cannot individuate. It is intelligent enough to survive, seek plea...

Re: Beginner Magick

Personally I prefer open eyed meditation because it assists in perceiving and accepting the world as it is in the moment. I yield greatly to my perceptual abilities in an effort to pay attention; that process interrupts the auto-pilot of psychosomatic posturing and the insular/regressive capacity of...

Star Wars and the Paths

The Star Wars mythos has been a longstanding discussion of what one does with great intelligence/power, mostly and most easily divided into the light and dark sides of the path, taught and preserved in the Jedi/Sith cultures respectively. But in some of the literature there was the uncovering of a t...

Re: Beginner Magick

It is impossible for me to tell you what kind of wizard you are/would be. I have no idea, so thats why I asked. My position is that the 'good vs evil' narrative is one framework for walking the Path, but cross referenced with the vMemes it eventually shows itself to have an end point, or at least, a...

Re: Beginner Magick

The more I learn the more I see that truly, to paraphrase, any extensively analyzed magic shows itself as indistinguishable from science.

I think this is a really interesting statement, depending on how one perceives that position. What is your take on it?

Mind sharing what book? And certainly do a forum search here, we've thrown that term and the art around in various ways for a while now, but always interested to see what someone with a fresh perspective comes upon.

I see more relationships between society/culture than race/culture. Actually I have a lot of confusion about how these things are distinct, they seem to interpenetrate continually when examined. I'll put some time in on these classifications.
