- non-A, non-E, non-N - E
Is there a right way to think?
Passive consciousness becomes everything; active consciousness generates everything
I bequeath to the science my soul and my criminal records
From Raymond Devos, "I will now give a brief history of the situation,
whatever it is..."
to Dominique Proust, "...not to destroy too early the evidence that
life appeared at least once in the universe",
here's the scream of a little old man
to future generations,
even though nowadays nobody cares about little old men or anything else, because
Old people also prepare the future
if the general opinion is that the value of a human being
lies in Quality, not Quantity
of course in everyday life it is the opposite:
you have more muscle, you win, you have more money, you control
Your stature depends on a few genes and on perspective
which, after all, would suit me, providing I'm pretty sure those strong people
have a broad and balanced vision and a minimum of moral principles
- or more precisely ethic, therefore personal, therefore efficient principles
Take fiction for reality
Take reality for fiction
Democrite, Epicure, Lucrece, where are you?...
Centuries have decinated utopia! Time to grow up now
Grant oneself the means, even so...
Overcoming the limits
to grow up is accepting all the legacy of millennia,
sifting a bit though: non-A, non-E, non-N,
non-Aristotelism, non-Euclidean, non-Newtonian - The Laws of Thought -
(the laws of identity, contradiction and exclusion -tertium non datur- questioned)
No limit a priori
Single real and reality out
Find the adjusted behavior
it would almost be a catch phrase for General Semantic
= noeto-general-semantic for Natana - whose goals are more specifically:
What kind of discipline would hold such promises?
Beware of apparent contradictions
Do not satisfy with the achievements
Noeto-general-semantic implies to respect a few rules, among which:
the reactions of the affect and its "recognition" by the reason - the latter two work with he memory
in order to be as efficient as the hunting animal
but very risky in our relationship with the world
- therefore, be aware of:
_the different levels of abstraction
_the difference in value of a given thing, depending on the reference system
_the self-references in the corpus of human knowledge
_do your interpretation comes from others' interpretations?
_your reactions to the same thing, different with time passing by
_the thalamocortical integration (physiology of sensory informations itself presupposes
several "translations" from sensations to consciousness
in short, BE AWARE that you abstract and doing so, be aware of moving away from the real
(as for the scientific approach, abstraction but taking specific precautions)
Do you assert that you control all your actions and their consequences?
Prepare for the future, therefore do not compromise it first of all
I think you understand, I do not insist...
these rules allow you to work towards the goals mentioned above
it is the prerogative of consciousness to decide - or not - there is Chance or Evolution,
Freedom or Predetermination, Gods or Ideals
but who cares, it is much more urgent and important to decide
what consciousness makes of itself!
Up to you...
oops, maybe a little too far there...
We cannot avoid the influences, but we can use trickery
