Spectrums of Meaning
We like to think in polarities.
It makes things very simple.
We suggest that these words and all of the meanings they convey
function as artificial boxes
function as plastic choices
function as inherited misunderstandings
of the complexity
of the systems
of the spectrums
that constitute the multivariate timespace essence behind every one of these words,
and all of the words we have invented in an attempt to fill the gap between each set of polarities
and between an old inherited minimal language and a fully systemic semiotic language.
These boxes fail at Nurture, Equality, Truth and Systems.
They are useful. But mislead, misinform, miscommunicate.
They do the job of the word itself. But most often, the spectrum of meaning behind any topic cannot be accurately, systemically, or contextually realized by the word alone. The points depicted by the words are simply points within a spectrum of points, threads, fabrics, patterns and systems – a rich semiotic landscape.
There is no such thing as healthy or sick.
There is no such thing as ugly or beautiful.
There is no such thing as smart or stupid.
Yes, we must use words,
Yes, we must use words to think.
Yes, we must understand the world by the words.
What if our words, our labels, our polarities, our restrictive constructs, limit us from learning the greatest lessons of the past century? What if we could translate those lessons into an evolutionary language that helps us put that knowledge into practice?
The learning begins with Nurture, Equality, Truth and Systems.
When applied to every polarity on our list, NETS takes us to a different modality.
Lets take the construct of young and old. We think of humans as babies, children, teenagers, adults, middle aged adults and seniors. We categorize. We know a human being is rapidly changing from birth to childhood, beginning to solidify its foundational essence in its early life, and launches into a stronger conscious mechanism to guide itself until it stops functioning as a human and leaves raw material and waves of interactive programming for the construction of another human being. The chronological reference to the state of a human being across its development and lifespan is nothing more than an artificial construct that social structures use to regulate and manage human affairs. But there are biological “ages”, biological states of being, biological functionalities and capacities and potentials that express a spectrum of dynamic realities that more accurately describe the meaning and value that words fail to capture. The labels themselves obfuscate the meanings and complexities beneath the surface of the label. As I listen to the voices of the world expressed by words, I find the purest and wisest voices often come from children. Without adult contamination, they can experience Donald Trump as the person they would least want to grow up to be like – a hateful, hurtful simple minded violent bullying persona they understand because there are at least 20 at every school. Why can’t they have a voice and a vote in the election. If your instant reaction is to scoff at the idea of a child playing a more significant role in the composition of our society, you have been SWAYed by chronology rather than capacity and inclusiveness or other important systemic constructs
Consider the label of “poverty”. Poverty is a state of being – caused by a complexity of non nurturing, non equal, non truthful and non systemic human thoughts and behaviors. Poverty is us failing to live up to our potential.
When we use the word poverty we instantly think about the individual on the wrong end of inheritance or circumstance. Our mind does not instantly turn to us when the limiting word “poverty” is used, it turns to “them” — because we have no word for us failing them. We are poverty, not them. We enable poverty despite our capacity to eliminate it. Labels have nothing to do with Nurture, Equality, Truth and Systems. Systemic poverty is about “us”, enveloping and harming “them”.
The essential meanings emerge from answers (Proof Process) to the following questions:
How do the systems of the universe work?
How do human centric systems work?
What does any variable in question have to do with Nurture, Equality, Truth and Systems?
How do I understand the states, dynamics, programming and exchange among variables in question?
How can I contribute to my establishment of Nurture, Equality, Truth and Systems and to a similar vitalization of every human and potential human on the planet?
Words are important. Labels are useful. But if we are to sustain and surmount and survive, it is essential that we develop a semiotic language that gathers complex knowledge into systemic scaffoldings. Simplification of the complex into understanding and action is essential. Words can move us, movies and documentaries can move us, but to really move the dial of change we have to weave and embed NETS and dynamic semiotics into the fabric of everything.
So, here is the meaning of life simplified.
We exist within a vast and never ending
of variables, forces and interactions.
Our most vitalizing role is to pursue and perceive Nurture, Equality, Truth and Systems.
As individuals, groups, collectives and societies, we act upon ourselves and the resources of the universe.
The dark closed box full of our inheritance
(our language, our programming, our momentums, our social constructs, our knowledge)
can be eternally opened and a better systemic language, a reprogramming, can become the commons seeds and nutrients
for a new inheritance.
The more we can understand ourselves, each other and “what is”,
The more we begin with a foundation rooted in Nurture, Equality, Truth and Systems,
The more we can shape the future
from micro to macro
toward our potential.
Y Worlds. Seeing the universe as a brilliant spectrum of matter and energy and meaning.
