Nothing is even what it seems and always just what it is. As things go wonky on the grand scale, the perfect place to be is in your own micro-universe, taking care of the one thing you know you can count on - you. As everybody currently is anybody, the whirled turns to conjecture in the absence of knowledge - i think perhaps time has come to rearrange the deck chairs once again?
How do we really know what we know and which parts of this are just made up out of the plasma of theory with no actual practice? A model is an abstract image that we can use to see the working dynamics of other pieces that are in play - yet we forget that the models are just models and not the pieces or images themselves. How do we hold context? What is bubble gum?
One of the first things to do is to explore other options. The cognitive dissonance of egregious illusion is portrayed in the video and audio discourse of our time. When doc speaks, it becomes of our Thyme. If time is a consistent illusion and can be encompassed in a different concept of size and space, then maybe some of the time dependent functions of life can be uncoupled from their sequences and studied as an entire whole unto themself, as opposed to a component of a larger entity? How does it stick together?
We are all one and we are each one. At every scale, there is a new base entity one that is different from the prior entity one. In science, we call the one a quantum. When the quantum one is the smallest one possible, it means that we no longer can break down the entity into another set of sub-components. Yet we continually go down smaller and redefine the basis set of the model system we call one, then forget that the previous one was indeed the limit to the size of the entity in the first place. This argument flips as a converse - substitute the yin smaller with the yang larger and the sentence still works - it has the symmetry of form that groks the concept of the very large and the very small being the very same one. As above, so below
I now have the form for a new game. Games do not have to be fair or balanced in any terms other than the rules of the game must be followed - cheating to win a game may be acceptable in real life, but it begs the question of the ultimate purpose of the game. We play the game to win. If the word game is carried through the semantic meat-grinder - a scientist might call his experiment a game - especially if it needs to be repeated with a frequency to develop statistical significance. Once you have set the game in motion, the rules become fixed by the level of play - the rules developed at one level become fundamental to the understanding of the concept of the game at the higher levels. You always are in your own bubble.
So - every individual has their own personal bubble games that they play with themselves at all times - to test the waters of reality to see if what they know indeed holds up to what they know. The game is as simple as cross-checking the facts or passing a judgment - later in time (the non-concept), the truth is revealed and we correct the thinking and move on to other games, other tests, other playful inquiries into the depth and breadth of an item, a theory, a relationship, a system. Chew gum, blow bubbles, pop bubbles, report and score.
Chess is a complex game built on a gridboard of 64 squares. The genetic code and the I-Ching also share this grid of 64 - as do many other concepts distributed amongst various scales of embedded information. If we wish to question all knowledge and get valid answers to these queries, then we must be able to discriminate truth from fiction - at least in terms of consistency of thought. The idea that we all have an individual perspective and a common perspective both, that are different but simultaneously in place together is the key to being able to play in doc's new game. It requires a third basis set in addition to the two - you have to figure out how to erect the third set from the union of the other two sets. Define your bubble in terms of two opposed concepts.
The game changes at every other scale - a sense of continuity is reached when the common scale is set to zero and the personal scale is set to one - or the common scale is set to one and the personal scale is set to zero. You win the game when each scale is set to 1/2 - one half - which happens to be a measured value of spin in commonly accepted science. Now how many of you think you are lost? What did doc just say? In very basic terms - what sort of game are we playing here? Bubble making and popping bubbles.
You think you know what you have been taught to know. You know some of what you know is pure BS, but there are some things that you know you know because they work as expected every time that you use them. You don't talk about them much to other folk because they wont believe you and want to argue that it doesn't happen, and if they convince you that it doesnt happen that way, your thing that worked no longer works - because you no longer believe. Illusion is when you believe something that isn't true, but it works as long as you keep the though stream going and truly believe in your imagination that you can make it work. You can, if you do not allow me, doc, to burst your bubble. Or anybody else. Just you burst your own bubble, first.
Because all bubbles do pop, that is what they do. Our economy has been likened to a series of bubbles - the housing bubble, the high tech bubble, the student loan bubble. Bubbles pop. Perhaps we need badly to pop all our common bubbles and reach a new standard of common thought where the basic pretense set is common and the though bubbles are unique - but alas, that model is not how the bubbles actually work in the real world - we never know when they are going to pop, they just do, all of a sudden. So maybe, just maybe, we can start working outside the current system building some alternative knew systems that we can try howdt some different ideas without concepts like time or money that create fear, panic or inequity? Oh - those are deep concepts not in doc's game world ... yet. Doc is off in his own bubble.
Namaste' ... doc
