C Our Age Ment
It is a simple matter to relegate new knowledge or ways of knowing
to the sargasso sea of the ‘untested’ and untrue —
and thus decide them to be false or unworthy of investigation. In
the past 1500 years, this single activity has come to stand between
ourselves and every possible door or window leading to the real
terrains of our organismal, emotional, and biocognitive potentials.
The idea that ‘knowing which is not the result of the statistical
and modeling proofs of experts’ is nonsense — and probably
dangerous nonsense — has become a deadly cognitive disease
in our species.
In a relatively short span of cognitive and planetary history, this
disease has raped us of our potentials, and our ability to experience,
share, nurture and protect them. The experts we’ve mysteriously
entrusted with establishing the foundations of truth and testability
are not experts at all. They are, in fact, almost the polar opposite
of experts — in nearly every case — if we look precisely
at the sources and outcomes of their expertise in human biocognitive,
emotional, physical, and environmental history.
We have learned adeptly to dismiss novelty out of hand, and since
our primary powers of organismal connectivity arise therein, wherever
we have chosen or been mislead into this circumstance we have effectively
abhorred our hopes and potentials for liberty, while simultaneously
raising high the dominion of rapists. I realize that my statement
seems severe, but I could stand in any room on earth and provide
nothing but direct evidence of this, extemporaneously, for seven
12 hour days without ceasing but for food and rest — and it
is my humble opinion that nearly every other human person on our
world is in a similar position. Our own persons, potentials, characters
and novelty are systematically and consistently silenced, stolen,
or co-opted against us in the most fundamental and universal of
terrains: how we know and experience ourselves, how we connect with
each other, and how we image, contact and experience our environment.
We know too well the rapes and silencings to which we have been
subject, regardless of how confused we me be about their purposes
and sources — and regardless of whether or not we have learned
to speak eloquently of what we’ve witnessed, suffered, and
participated in. What we are largely unaware of is what
was lost as our connective sentience was attacked, disabled, and
mechanistically co-opted against us in every moment of our lives.
I am passionately and heartfully convinced that we must rediscover
together what was stolen, what was broken and what was silenced
— and the hows and whys of these events — preferably
organized in at least a relatively accurate order.
I am going to ask you to set aside the habits we’ve
been scripted to obey and elaborate, and to believe with me for
a moment, even if only as a game — that the entirety of human
mythos, fiction, science, religion, art and history — is something
infinitesimally smaller and less accurate... than you.
What I want you to understand is that you are nothing like the models
with which we’ve been presented. At all. In fact, those models
are in many cases the antithesis of likeness to you. What actually
happened is that our watchfulness over the realm of metaphor —
the toys with which we assemble and credential knowledge —
was either badly adapted during our rise to sentience — or
was crushed by a competing momentum of some sort. My coin is with
the latter argument, however that is not the matter at hand. The
matter most urgently before me, is to somehow convince you that
not only were the stories about what it means to be human wrong
— the stories about organisms, organization, and what constitutes
knowledge are also wrong. Rather than replace any of this with some
new dogma or system, I merely suggest we re-explore the terrain
directly, in small adventurous groups. Let me explain part of why
I believe this is crucial.
Most of us have heard stories of religious and anomalous experience,
and I believe a great many of us have personally had experiences
that really, at their roots, either utterly defy or draw strongly
into question many of the foundational assumptions of the cultures
and knowledge-forms we arise as individuals and collectives with(in).
We have heard stories of angelic and alien visitors, of hauntings
and visitations, of gods — demons, practitioners of arcane
arts. We have seen the footprint of the eastern and western historical
religions of Christianity, Islam, and Hinduism in every moment of
our living experience — and we have often participated or
watched as their more militant and rapacious elements converted
or erased whole cultures based upon a megalomaniacal idea.
And we have read stories of strange powers —
with which we and our children are endlessly fascinated. Powers
of changing matter, or time — powers of unusual perception
or energetic ability. Powers of minds connected at a distance, even
across the seeming barrier of death — and powers of faith,
and impossible (by modern intellectual standards) healing. We have
the stories of those who’ve statistically ‘died’
and returned — in great number. There are libraries of tomes
about dreaming, spiritual systems, and arcane practice, re-packaged
for modern consumption, and it could even be said that almost everyone
has at least a simple pet cosmology, or outright mechanical denial
In the large — the actions of our societies and of our experts
do not credential these domains, and consider them the realm of
chicanery and charlatans. But it is interesting to note that if
a single person were representing multiple perspectives, participants
or perceptions they would have to imitate to express —
so the expression is perhaps bound to form itself into something
akin to masquerade.
What the skeptics, experts, credentiallers and commonly popular
systems of knowing have neglected to inform us of is that the powers
that so fascinate adults and children — all of which are really
examples of miracles of connectivity — are not fictional
at all. We’re living on a planet founded on precisely
such principles — in bodies that would instantly disappear
without them. The problem is that the models we were given suck,
and they’re broken in such fundamental and obvious ways that
the second most shocking thing after one gains access to one’s
own potentials is that they could ever have been so thoroughly hidden.
Essentially what I am saying is that we have powers
that we consider fictional or magical, and these powers are the
result of plain ole organismal connectivity. We are assembled by
and amongst and within such a symmetry — and its powers are
our own — unless something declares that they do not exist,
or cannot be ours, which is, in our case, a self-fulfilling prophecy.
Written in our own hands and eyes, in the shape of our relations
with our universe is a story we have rarely seen any hint of.
At once universal and personal, this epic relates the ladderSteps
and participants in our species’ (and our planet’s)
ascension to complex sentience.
This sentience is a shared momentum that we each experience, express,
and transform — locally and in groups — but its sources
and anatomy have almost nothing to do with locality, and the meaning
of ‘groups’ in this context is really unlike any of
our common concepts or metaphors that match.
Throughout our education, our ‘species’ is rePresented
to as the apex of Nature’s generative expression on our world,
and this is perhaps true, though not in the way it is presented.
We have never been given a reasonably accurate picture of our
sources, powers and natures. We keep getting broken information,
from the mirror of knowledge — and part of this has to do
with the fact that the mirror itself is terrifying to encounter
— or can be.
I believe that as a people, a species, and a planet we are about
to radically re-shape what it means to be human. Personally,
I think it likely that this will result from crisis — but
it could as easily result from agreement and exploration. The latter
is my hope, for the cost of the former will be too high by any standard.
The way this will happen is through mutual exploration of our potentials,
and not through mutual empowerment of some codice or priest, governor
or science over our own minds, hearts and bodies.
The clearest and simplest statement I can make is
that the parents of the tokens by which we decide what we are and
can be are broken. They do not refer accurately to any
truth they may imply, but instead to copies of copies of ideas..
In our generation I believe, we will not only discover this, we
will repair it. We will do this together, and the results are
going to make our wildest fictions look boring.
Me, you, your world, and our people have been improperly defined
to ourselves. The metaphors that we use and credential are faulty,
and when we use a certain form of faulty toy
to compare, define and measure things the results are catastrophic.
Our cognitive toys of knowing are actually engineered to have a
sort of primitive self-correcting property — if we don’t
attend them regularly they attack us. It’s a part
of our relationship with a kind of an invisible snake. When we attend
it, it’s a servant. When we don’t, it’s a serpent.
It exists as something like a pseudo-sentient arbiter of connection.
If we generally connect correctly and often, it adds
its power to serve the connectivity. If we connect badly, or
not often enough — it starts biting things. This makes them
simpler, and thus more reliant on their connectivities.
The snake isn’t evil, it isn’t anything really. It’s
a character of assembly.
Essentially, I want you to meet an angel inside you that many humans
outside our local time period knew intimately. I also want to introduce
you to your snake, because when you relate with it directly —
you can touch your sources. When we do this together, we experience
something largely lost to our species in the modern moment. We touch
the distributed sentience of the scalar domains within, below, and
outside us. If one does this even once — the stories about
god(s), science, language, and our origins change dramatically from
what we expect or are used to.
If what the (missing text) told me is true, we’re going to
need to understand our snakes a lot better than we do now, and fast.
An example of this understanding comes to us in the form of a simple
symbol from Egypt — a snake ascendant over a setting sun.
In 35 years of watching people, myself, animals and
insects from uncommon perspectives I have learned that the cognition
living forms express and experience is a delicate, majestic and
amazing field of connective and associative living universes. If
we invert this perspective, we see the negative tree of its opposite
— the material aspect — that which our sciences and
arts of knowledge have convinced us is foremost. Either way, it’s
connectivity between a subject — defined by our perspective
— in relation to scalar symmetries of context. We must ask
new questions about the stage upon or within which relation itself
occurs: what is its origin in our species and persons? What are
the threats and opportunities congruent with its assembly and activation?
When we as organisms accrue the ability to formally (symbolically)
reference ourselves (self-awareness), this results in parsing —
we assemble biocognitive unities which we then interpret and value.
We consider them at their roots as positive, negative, neutral,
etc. We do this with a system that is, for the moment, deeply related
to semantics, logics, and the general ‘state of the nation’
of gremlins we’ve inherited and modulated as languages and
ways of knowing along the ladder to our present relationship with
symbolic sentience. There is something on the flipside of this coin
we are not at liberty to generally explore or discuss.
As complexly enlanguaged creatures, we will base our understandings
and activity upon categorical valuings. The sources to which we
compare for value, and the difference between our real and potential
positions of perspective are crucial.
If we only see the negative — we see a sky filled
with stars at night. Mostly sky, some stars. If we see only the
positive, we see the mid-day sun. A single star, from which all
light and life emerge. If we cannot access the integration of the
two, we are trapped with half a self. If we cannot invert any of
these to highlight their contexts, we are similarly trapped.
Symbolic consciousness is a fascinating toy. What it arises in and
from is geometrically more fascinating however.
You, me, and the many scales and associations of the living children
of a living world.
Actually, what I really want to talk about is
ways of knowing do not make the sense they seem to imply. For the
last 3000 years our species has been involved in a struggle that
we must imagine few lifeForms on Earth have experienced. Like them,
we struggle for survival and progress toward what we may become
in a living biosphere. Unlike them, something is causing us to not
only threaten, but openly erase not only our container, but ourselves.
placing too much value in their relations with locality and identity,
have become a biospheric epidemic in the last 150 years. For some
reason, those who we socially enthrone as leaders and advocates
accomplish the opposite of what we as living people intend.
that inside you, there is something like a sentient toy of connectivity.
It can connect you to anything, anywhen, anywhere instantly. Now
expand the toy from choice-only to always — meaning you’re
always touching everything and everywhen, with something like a
ray of light. Now pretend that the power of this toy was
stolen long ago, perhaps unintentionally, and that by simply failing
to notice the theft, or being able to speak of it in even the most
general terms — our species has broken our minds.
Something very much alike with this has happened on Earth,
and if we were to arrive at this world, as visitors from another
time and place, the first thing we would notice is this:
Broken toys are eating the nursery, and the children —
in scalar waves of rapidly amplifying force and velocity.
By toy, what I really mean, is reflection — somehow,
our species got caught in a hypnotic reflection character at the
very place where the window of our sentience arises and is activated.
For at least 3000 years, and countless billions of human lifetimes,
we’ve been frozen before the mirror of ourselves. Watching
the reflections too closely, and enthroning them as fact has nearly
cost us an entire living world, and may yet do so.
We need the antidote to knowledge, and we need to have the opportunity
to actually experience the birthrights of our animalian and human
The toys we need are in our hands, if we can but merely agree, link
those hands, and look into the window together.
link leads to a brief introduction to one of Rupert Sheldrake's
‘7 experiments that could change the world’. In
this particular case, science might explain away his evidence
easily - and the most likely device would be a metaphor called
the ‘clever Hans effect’. viz: ‘Authorities
examining a miraculous horse, Clever Hans, (date? 1900’s?)
found that this animal could reliably answer extremely subtle
questions, and even resolve mathematical calculations - giving
answers in a code, by tapping its hoof. The eventual decision
on Clever Hans was that he was ‘a phony’ because it
was discovered that the animal was reading subtle or overt
clues from its questioners, and it was decided that this
meant the entire event was a sham, meaningless, or both.
The problem with scientific
dismissals of this nature is that they miss the obvious value and
novelty of what they dismiss for not meeting their absurd standards
and restrictions of testability. The frame imposed by ‘objective’
research denies the obvious sources of sentience, which while extremely
simple – are, in scalar recombinance — vastly more
complex than we have yet imagined.
But here an example can speak volumes. I read in an interview on
the net which could easily be a fable, and yet even if it were
still results in just as useful and fascinating a perspective as
if it were real. In the interview, someone is talking with an engineer
from Lotus, an automobile manufacturer. He explains that many years
ago one of their engineers realized that the idea of the ‘problem’
of an engine ‘dieseling’ — or continuing to run
after the fuel feed has been shut off — was actually not a
problem, but a state in which an engine could continue to fire
cylinders without adequate fuel feed. I found this hilarious
because at 6 years old I had suggested to my father that the engine
was running without fuel, and why didn’t we make all engines
do that instead of the other thing? He laughed, and that was the
end of it.
The Lotus engineer apparently realized that the engine was running
on ‘very little indeed’ and began working on engines
that would capitalize upon this ‘problem’. Eventually
his team came up with models that ran on extremely small amounts
of fuel, produced excellent performance, and very little in the
way of emissions. In the text, the engineer said they had contacted
the standard industry media regarding these developments and received
little in the way of response, yet apparently (according essentially
to hearsay) they are going to produce automobiles with the modern
result of this research.
Most of us would consider our car to be ‘malfunctioning’
if, after shutting it off, it sputtered and choked and kept turning
over for 30 seconds. But the inversion of the error leads to a scalar
amplification of the usefulness of the toy in question — not
only in this case (as a parable, rather than as fact) but in many
domains of sentient parsing of environment, meaning, assembly, unity,
error and inversion — the very gardens of knowledge...
Sheldrake’s feline phenomenon could very well be a sort of
Clever Hans Effect; but the meaning of that comparison
is entirely missed by those who judge it too specifically, from
perspectives which are negative and highly inflexible.
meaning of these noticings is that complex (asymbolic) non-lingual
communication is verifiable. It has, throughout human history, been
verified countless billions of times in expression and experience
at every possible scale of individual or assembly. We are so busy
looking for proofs that the denials we must assert to shape them
erase what we were there to look for in the first place.
Animals, and thus, people (given the opportunity and encouragement),
can read whole lingual communications without the aid of obvious
signaling. This seems to clearly describe the CHE, but in a radically
new light. The meaning of an animal being able to parse and respond
to complex non-lingual signaling implies that humans not only can,
but do — we merely fail to notice, properly value, or deeply
explore the potential of these skills.
These domains of sentient skill are not of minor value - they are
in practice far more valuable than language skills - which our modern
societies pretend to value so highly, while the commonizations and
simplifications of modern media and education basely erase what
they aspire to admire. So it is also with cognitive novelty of any
Science has long been in the specific business of erasing the potential
for novelty through owning the root credentialing metaphors, and
mechanizing them. Religion has been in a similar business - erase
history, and the records - rewrite almost at will, and own everything
in the cognitive domain entirely. Materialism and commercialism
are similar, and more subtle - they are the 'luxury versions' of
the cognitive diseases we are vitally pregnant with as a result
of our experiential and real immersion in these modern social momentums.
But there is an even
more awe-inspiring meaning, whose simplicity is bound to escape
complex systems of knowing or discussing such things. It is this:
complexly evolved living systems such as animals possess something
like ‘access privileges’ to an ancient organismal library
of miracleToys. These toys arise from the activity of our cellular
constituents, as well as networks of sensing in those constituents
- and these networks are interScalar and highly recombinant - just
like our own models of our neurotransmitter biologies.
Perhaps even more importantly, all of these toys ‘boil
down’ to a single toy, one which is completely accessible
to all human beings, and also, illegal to believe in or play with
directly. Human history, from a verifiable perspective, is little
more than two species: those who know of or seek the toy, and those
who erase them. We‘ve literally been involved in a vast story
of intentional biocognitive selection that is in its actual embodiment
far more terrifying than the nightmare of eugenics, and we’ve
been active in this as a people for at least the last 3000 years.
It’s the mimics against the children, and we’re not
seeing the general shape of this, because there are ‘too
many factions’ and ‘points of view’. We need,
thus, to simplify. The kind of simplification that results
in something more like parable than axiom.
There is a psybiocognitive set of elemental features (or access
privs) which all animals share. If we boil this down to its most
essential statement, one much easier to grasp, we could say that
all animals have a very simple device which acts like a scalarly
self-attenuating lie detector. Or, truth detector, if we prefer.
This ‘senseField’ or ‘answer place’ within
the animal is known to it. As a mechanical toy, we could
say that the device self-attenuates in the domains of time(speed)
and accuracy. The point is that if we attenuate in time and accuracy,
we get (not surprisingly) a conically spiral shape.
I want to take a moment to talk about this animalian feature of
general psybiocognitive attenuation. I want to talk about it because
it’s clear evidence that every ‘psychic’ skill
or miracle of prophecy, insight, or rescue ever performed by a human
being or group of them has a single source. It’s the same
source Clever Hans was using. Butterflies, whales, turtles and birds
use it to ‘migrate’. Children use it to accomplish the
absurd miracle of learning language, and using it. Adults touch
it every time they make a word, and could in no way drive a car
without it. This is an elemental feature of the 'source of miracles'
in a real, experientially accessible, and provable set of domains.
Let’s examine a tiny and admittedly toylike model of this
miraculous nanoSkill which I'll call biolocative migration:
An animal begins at
point A, and must travel to point B. It has been teleported to
point A. It has never been near point A before, and has no ‘map’
of the terrain or distance or direction from point A to point
Its challenge is to direct itself to arrive at point B and succeed.
Unbeknownst to the animal point B is 2876 miles due NW. Attending
matters of scale this is equivalent for our small dogSized animal
to something like 9000 miles.
For all the information this animal has, the (home) destination
might as well be on another planet. (Interestingly, this is the
common state of the animal, from certain usefully important perspectives).
Many obstacles and dangers lie in the path.
Many of these will be entirely new, never before encountered,
predicted or considered.
Point A is ‘right
Point B is ‘somewhere’.
Makes an imaginary asterisk of 4 rods, with it’s current location
at the center.
The animal ‘travels’ out to the halfway point of some
rod (random) in the asterisk-structure, from the center.
The animal begins traveling from rod to rod, or, more accurately,
half-rod to half-rod.
It touches all the half-rods one time in a spiral.
The rod ‘most accurately aligned’ with the destination
If no half-rod ‘feels different’ enough, the process
is repeated until one does.
This rod turns blue (going) while its other half turns red.
Animal travels to the end of the blue half-rod, and repeats this
Here’s a somewhat primitive illustration of this process.
Notice that, as the animal approaches the destination beyond a certain
critical point, many rods become blue, meaning that a more general
sense is accrued as the asterisk becomes smaller, and the destination
functionally larger due to the history of attenuations. This presents
an hourglass-like shape, where the beginning and middle are critical
parsing phases, and after that, less attention to parsing is required;
the animal ‘leaps’ more accurately the closer to the
destination it is.

This is merely a toyVersion
of a real and accessible skill. It functions in any domain, at any
scale, and is essentially transdimensional as well as transtemporal.
This, in fact, is the source of any skill whatsoever. It is also
the reason we have computers - they are mimicking this skill, and
thus replacing it in our people, with a mechanized and extremely
primitive model of its functionality.
All human beings have this skill, and it can locate or accomplish
any goal. It can answer any question, solve any possible dilemma,
even the dilemma of its own source. When humans use this skill in
small rings of intimate and heartful unity, miracles far beyond
the domains of our fictions are consistently accomplished. Much
of what we do already arises in intimate communion with the momentums
I speak toward. We can neither notice nor discuss it, because we
possess neither the necessary terms, nor the credentials somehow
‘required’ to speak and be heard on such matters.
Seeing these factors
clearly, we must select for each other and ourselves access to a
cognitive evolutionary activism which will empower and lead us,
together, as a global people, to liberty from the essentially
constrictive cages of the labels, valuings and categories foisted
upon us by what amount to systemically intelligent systems of psychological,
emotional, biological. and intellectual suffocation and obligatory
These momentums are as difficult to name as they are easy to overlook,
because - while we've been wandering around in wonderland for the
past 200 years - these systems have grown malignant and oppressive
in their common activity and terrain dominance - and one of their
primary behavioral features is to remain 'under the radar' so to
speak. They are actively self-occlusive.
Our world, and our moment to moment experience, is being mediated
by metaphors that are cognitive sieves: they strip away whole domains
of the birthrights we must explore - and treat those of us who respond
negatively to this torture as sick, criminal, insane, or unworthy
of care or even notice.
Well, 'those of us who respond negatively' is a set that includes
all children, and most adults.
People desire to know that there are amazing dimensions to life
and cognitive experience - because they intuitively sense this is
a fact. Religion, Politics, Science and Commerce all thrive upon
splitting this internal set of momentums into isolated positions,
and then co-opting their basic energies entirely - leaving the peoples
and individuals in cognitive environments and domains that are as
uninhabitable as they are unthinkably constrictive and punishing
in nearly every domain. Prisons take care of those who refuse to
succumb, as do graveyards and psychiatric hospitals. The damage
being consistently fed to us in the form of education and systemic
modes of valuing and credentialing that we are obliged to conform
to is incalculable.
we can change this for the sake of some new dogma, or some person,
or some philosophy - not even for the sake of some science - but
because we have the power to return these birthrights to their rightful
place: the palms of our own hands
- and the hands
of the world's children, who are born with their promise and
and potentials belong to the people, and they must reside with them,
if we are to seek any possibility of a habitable life or sustainable
future. We obviously can't give anyone what is intrinsic to their
essential cognitive natures and your unique person - but we can
show you how it was taken away, and how to retrieve it - and we
can teach new teachers - who will preserve the essences and foundations
of cognitive liberty with simple stories, toys and tools.
species is cognitively evolved to learn scalarly. We can
do things with symbols that make science-fiction seem unimaginative
— if we’re supported and given the opportunity. And
the skills ‘come from’ animals, children, and our own
histories. This isn't make-believe, or metaphysics. It is the meta-science
of what we are, who and what our sources are or may be, and the
vastly inexpressible potentials of what we, even in a single human
lifespan, may become. We can use these tools not to build some restrictive
utopia, but instead to preserve the utopias naturally emergent from
a world and a people in sustainable unity with their biospheric
sources and relations.
now, you are using a soft device (software) to browse
this web-page. I am actually using a kind of inversion of that,
in the process of what we call writing. Further, as living cognitive
hyperstructures, we are both employing myriad sets of semi-intelligent
inner browser-beings or scalar biocognitive nanosymmetries
which have an amazing ability to organize themselves into
functional unities. These unities are alike with what we call
organs, but are not essentially physical - they are energetic
and can contain many dissimilar member-structures. Scientists
might call them stochastically self-referencing hyperstructures.
their assemblies and records we refer to when we use the term
mind, and on our world, in our place and time, we generally
believe - and teach children - that this mind is a thing,
a possession, housed in our skulls, in a single organ we call
The Brain. Yet the chances of this being true are functionally
zero. This mind we speak with, of, experience, and participate
in is definitely is not housed in your skull. Similarly,
the internet is not housed in your computer. Nor
is this website/book/dream housed there.
At most, what is happening - this 'mind thing' - has a whole lot
to do with something we'd call caching. And the specific
and changeable positions of perspective, scale, velocity and approach.
Caching is when one acquires a cognitive sample of a situation,
being or event series - and then maps it, and values the nodes
in the map in some way. But when we forget that caching is what
we are doing, and that all that we refer to and with are cached
tokens — we invite a specific set of problems to rise to
the fore — problems born from authorizing tokens that don't
recalibrate from their sources often enough.
These web pages and the ideas in them are an excellent example.
Most people will believe and behave as if by reading a page once,
they will ‘know about’ what is on that page. But the
reality is that all the pages on this site are changing daily,
in no apparent order — so a reader thinking they have read
a page is actually referring to having cached an instance
of relation activity.
When we talk about tokens, language, nouns and ways of knowing,
caching without awareness of it is a dangerous game that leads
us rapidly into scalar expansions of essential dilemma. With each
passing phase, more tokenization accrues, and the game rapidly
becomes one where cognitive artifacts of every sort are ruling
over sentient lives.
With an understanding of the importance of caching, of its essential
anatomy and our relation to it, however, we can turn its threats
into opportunity. We can return to the place where it is our servant,
rather than our master.
we call a mind...is
something we are connected to — we are able to modify
it and transact with it in various ways, locally...but
it isn't even housed... it is, quite obviously... shared,
as well as scalarly emergent with its participants
at any given moment.
even be speculated that by considering this mind a 'thing'
which is somehow 'in you alone', and 'yours'' - you could be
either poisonous to it, poisonous to yourself, or,
perhaps less dramatically, simply unable to have any reasonably
integral experience of its actual fullness, depth, and power...yet
many other potentials certainly exist.
Whatever you may think
about my speculations on this matter - please don't take
my word for it. Instead, go watch five 3-year olds play together
- or a pack of lions. Look for the mind that is the mind of a single
creature, and watch how it changes in the presence of unities on
various scales and in various domains. Watch the mind which is at
work all around us - but lacks symbolic language, because its language
is active and not representational.

creature, these skills are generally similar to others of its kind,
but manifested in unique ways.
Now, imagine that on
this world, all of the 'people' are scalar magnifications of this
But there is a problem.
On our 'story-world', the 'people' have rendered it functionally
punishable by death to believe in, practice, or even discuss such

punishable by death to interact in any way with symbols. Thus, to
read, write, seek writings, or speak of them would carry the penalty
of persecution unto death.
by writing, we would literally have to become blind, in order to
survive the 'laws'.
So, on our imaginary
world, after many generations of punishment, erasure, isolation
and general persecution of any persons unwilling to sacrifice their
unique powers forever - or to live and die without being even exposed
to them...those remaining would fall into a deeper and deeper kind
of 'sleep' regarding the existence of these powers at all. They
would, in essence, begin to actively persecute their only real defenders
- those who opposed the laws, and the situation, and intended liberty
for the common people. For all of the people.
Eventually, these toys,
symbols, stories and cognitive momentums would occupy the realm
of myth, and not be admitable to conscious rationality.

- the imaginary world is actually our world.
