philosophy

Philosophy is the study of general and fundamental problems, such as those connected with reality, existence, knowledge, values, reason, mind, and language. Philosophy is distinguished from other ways of addressing such problems by its critical, generally systematic approach and its reliance on rational argument. The word “philosophy” comes from the Greek φιλοσοφία (philosophia), which literally means “love of wisdom”.

Formless Collective

It is easy to act wisely
surrounded by wisdom,
yet it is difficult to maintain wisdom among fools.

When one acts for nobody
others will come
explaining how to help themselves.

Mirror like gaze
opposes nothing,

revealing without words.

Appointed the highest;
dwells in the lowest,

embracing everything in no body,
as though death did not affect.

The highest honor is given
when it is never used,

never spent and never grasped.

Gain

Way forgets it is Way,
and so flows beyond remembering.

Yet Way can never be forgotten,
only rediscovered.

The hundred fold people know Way when they see it,
and use it for gain.

Yet gain is fooling others to recognize it’s semblance
which ripens into loss imbued with gain.

The only gain is in seeing it.
Using it for gain is losing it.

Introverting gain with loss
is to gain Way.

Forgetting form to gain Way-
this is the path to freedom.

Want

They who want nothing
have everything ever,

and when they do not get it
they have too much.

What they require appears before them
in perfect time.

Culture Shock

Culture shock arises when the well torn thought patterns
of habit collide with forms of relative novelty.

All expectations fail to arise
and so confusion sets in.

Lava Lamp

01. Bodies Collective masses of molecules, bound together by their relative temporal vibrations, form individual blobs in the lava lamp. The blob’s individualism is propogated by each molecule’s attachment to others of similar density (temperature or vibration). Giving rise to collective inertia, balanced on the theshhold defining colliding bodies from intersection, projecting from it’s infinitely relative center of mass, conditioned by the body’s kinetic motion, according to it’s density and state.
02. Binding Threshhold

Colliding liquid bodies of the same substance do not intersect (merge or mingle), maintaining their own inertia wthin the frictional threshhold, relative to the temperature contrast which forms and dissolves their boundries.

Their forms arise relative to the spacial void of clear liquid in which they are suspended (eternally conditioned). Wax molecules bound in collective blobs conform to boundries imposed by temperature contrast, which seeks it’s way more fundamentally.
03. Collision

The form of the blobs lose integrity on mild (below merging threshold) collisions, conforming their boundry and inertia to reflect the angle (approach) and intensity (friction) of the impact between the two relative bodies.

The collective remains bound, maintaining their seperation from other bodies, within this threshhold(reflecting peer density // friction) which forms and dissolves their boundries.

If this threshhold is broken on impact, so too are the boundries seperating the colliding bodies, allowing the individuals forming each of the two bodies to mingle amongst eachother. In merging is born a greater body composed of the two former individual collectives, which smoothly equalizes towards it’s center of gravity, streching in the perpendicular form of it’s inertia.
04. Mental Analogy

Which is to say that the higher mind (from which the lower mind and it’s illuminating consciousness projects) in which it’s composing currents of energy are suspended (the glass lamp), more fundamentally (defining their absolute boundries contained by the lamp itself) conditions the collective manifestation of wax molecules (body mind), in whatever form they arise, forming boundries to contain it’s own inner world of bubbles (thoughts). Outside of which boundries, the blobs (body mind thoughts) could not arise, being absent from the fundamental condtioning in which they were rooted.
05. Projection

The universe reflects in every lava lamp. As such, the collective molecular psychology may also be generally applied to any collective bodies at large.

It is a great analogy to manifest so literally.

Friends

+Friends grow close as eachother’s relativity is illuminated by understanding.Friends grow distant as their behavioral patterns drift out of synch.

So as the vibrational interactions between
man and a galaxy,
man and a star,
man and a tree,
man and a dog,
man and a man,
thin down into synchronicity.

Patterns so similar, they fall into place,
cognizing subtle differences in eachother’s character.

As one is drawn into a mirror, individuals are drawn together forming the collective,
in which they oscillate amogst eachother, systematically forming new patterns.

The thoughts of individuals are conditioned by their collective.
A collective conditioned by the thoughts of it’s individuals.

Culture immersed within it’s composition.
Born a new identity.

= An intelligent swarm of particles.

Karma

Imagine you are floating in outer space. There are many rocks floating around you, though everything is generally motionless… just sort of spinning around suspended. Now, if you take and throw one of these rocks, it will push you backwards with the same force with which you threw it, causing you to move the opposite direction through space.

The only way to slow down is to hit other rocks with your body, which will absorb the kinetic energy.

Every volitional action you emmit is throwing a rock. If you throw a rock upwards (positive), it will push you downwards and give your feet somthing to balance on for a moment. If you throw a rock downwards (negetive), it will thrust you upwards and you will hit your head on a rock.

As such, karma is punching a thorny shrub.

Social conditioning

“Oh, that Fellow. He just projected his shadow upon others, unmindful of how he himself was conditioned by the programming.”As such, our interactions are conditioned by the social organism which reflects our ideals. We choose those which reflect ourselves, which in turn reflect back, inflicting upon us the conditioning and motives of the collective.

We may see how it conditions others, how others reflect their programming, without realizing that the very association arising in our mind, linking the Fellow to the programming he reflects, created an awareness of that form of interaction within ourselves- as a result of our own conditioning.

Whether or not there was contrast in the Fellow’s own experience to mindfully perceive himself objectively, the drama could only have been our projection. The supposed flaw we fixated upon is but an aspect of our own mental form, which conditions our every interaction- for better or for worse, according to our volition.

As such, the only flaws in the form of the Fellow, which we can perceive, are those which are projected from within ourselves.

Blissful may they be, whom do not understand; yet, awake are those who do.
