The ‘human-style’ forms of Arithmetic
[ a rhythm-tick] and Math [ma thema ticks] which we are taught
to credential and authorize are the strangely garbled [abstracted]
children of a generalizeable hypostatic principle which
we employ to establish or speak of unity and separation.
The species of math we are taught and work with are not
the the only forms available however; and in many cases our
basic arithmetic understanding lacks every desirable aspect of
teaching-momentum and prowess — depending instead upon structural
sophistication in coupling with abstractive foundations. This
recipe delivers us from intelligence to a senseless universe where
meaning is commonly discarded, and this gesture is erroneously
perceived as somehow adept.
Numeric entities do have meaning, and pretending
they don’t causes catastrophe. Their meaning
exists in multiple dimensions — and is about dimensions
and relations — in general.
Novel forms of accessible arithmetic relation may
contain the antidote to a deadly cognitive error in the basis
of human representational consciousness. In open opposition to
our common positions of rationality and broken rhetoric, rational
and ordinal precedence lies with sets and assemblies
— not with members and separate entities
— as the principles which underlie our basic arithmetic
imply. Our mathematics also tend to completely ignore matters
of context — yet even this hath precedence to separate
entities. A page on which we have written 1 + 1 is more significantly
changed than our arithmetic notices.
Another element of longstanding peril for our species appears
fantastical at first glance: although numeric entities may
be handled abstractly, this does not imply that abstraction has
rational precedence in numeric relations. In fact, poetics
has precedence, and pretending abstraction is somehow ‘purer’
after being divested of its links to original meanings is a lie.
Nowhere in nature is there an abstract instance of anything
— except in human modeling toys. No numeric entity is ‘abstract’ but
that we decide this, and cast off nearly all of what is most
important about numerism in general.
The ‘numbers’ are not so much digits
as something akin to the footprints of the speech of transpresent
beings, in a dimension we’ve neither named nor
understood adeptly thus far. These entities are transHuman intelligences,
and the numbers are the mark of their omniPresent Academy which
is ‘always in session’.
The door to this university is always and everywhere

Even the simplest single
organism is the result of a gesture made by the entirety of
universe, and the source of these assemblies lies entirely outside
our ideas about the dimension we call time. In this way, each
at every scale is simultaneously entirely unique —
while at the same time being ‘impossibly complete’
— since each is a perfectly complete and unique [at scale]
formative likeness of the Entirety.
Each instance of any ‘thing’
(a local or distributed symmetry) represents a uniquely co-emergent
hypostasis (a ‘more than merely alive’ assembly-body
at scale) of the entire history of everyone and everything, everywhen
and everywhere. Reconnecting two of these
beings in psybiocognitive symmetry results in explosions
which blow things together — not ’dead sums’.
The sentient co-reflection of even two such entities is progressively
self-complexifying and is fundamentally about the creation and
sustenance of a biocognitive fusion incident — again, this has nothing to do with ‘addition’.
Effectively, planets scalarly
self-assemble biocognitive ‘galaxies’ in living form
— with eyes, feelings, stories and purpose — because
this is what a planet is — a multibeing
existing as an up-scale symmetry of diverse assemblies of biosentience.
When two or more organisms
symbiose, we are witnessing the localized instance of an essentially
atemporal gesture — the local self-assembly of a living
intelligence many factors the ‘age’ of our ‘universe’.
A human person or ‘animal’ [including insects] is
an almost impossibly complex assembly of these forms of relation
— at thousands of scales and speeds — and in more
than millions of relational ‘dimensions’. The result of two such
entities in synchrony puts the sum of our science fictions to
shame, but this form of unity has long been far from our reach,
for it is denied by the very bases of the way we learn, and our
relationships with knowledge in general.
Through the scalarly accelerating re-inclusion of diverse relational
momenta accrued in reflection, every organism becomes ‘explosively
more of what organisms are, in general’. Yet the secret
is in the peculiarly multi-dimensional ways in which portions
of organismal behavior and cognition are shared atemporally across
boundaries we cannot yet easily imagine. There’s a set of invisible
dimensions which connect everything, everywhen — and they
are alive. I think we used to call them angels,
because it’s possible to meet one — and when
you do, ‘they teach you stuff’.
Mostly, they teach you a way
to see the sources of things from a perspective that unifies them,

The question part is the answer. There’s a question

• Which came first?
— how is that the answer?
Somewhere before the invention of the idea of which-ness —
there was no division of any kind at all.
Once this ‘which-ness’ arrived on the scene —
suddenly we had absurd questions implying that a chicken and an
egg could be separate, and one of them thus ‘had to come
first’. This is silly — everything is fun-da-mentally
unified — long before
questions of when and where — which this question is
based upon. So the idea is this: chicken and egg are modes of
a unity, and only AFTER we introduce WHICH can such a question
as this arise. Thus -which- came first — as the idea of
rendering entities in timeSpace more conceptually ‘separate’

the ability to consider things as more separate than they are unified,
and this resulted in questions about which-ness and first-ness?

A: Introduction to Pizza
I’ve no way of estimating
how many slices of pizza I have consumed in my lifetime —
at least not with any reasonable degree of accuracy. Certainly
more than a hundred. I am aware that pizzas come in many shapes,
but in general we think of a pizza as a disk, which gets sliced
up and shared, and this is the sort of pizza I’d like to
explore with you briefly.
Slicing a pizza is measuring
it — and the best way to slice a pizza is with a single
blade sporting a gently convex edge and a handle running all the
way along the top. For best results, the blade should be longer
than the pie’s diameter. With each cut, you attempt to divide
it equally. Since you’re using a single blade, it’s
very uncommon to end up with an odd number of slices, although
poor measuring may result in inequal slices. The blade comes down,
rocks side-to-side, and bingo — one division — resulting
in two ‘slices’ — semicircles. Each has one
angular side — and a strange gap now lies ‘between’
by ‘divide’ I mean to make a cut on the pie which
extends to both edges, intersecting the approximate center of
the circle. When I add ‘one division’ to a pizza,
my gesture produces something akin to a binary pair from the prior
unity [the entirety]. But the outcome is a bit more complex than
we expect; in effect the result is (at least) three. 1 division,
and 2 semi-circles. There’s also the original unity (1).
If we decide each slice possesses
a division — we might count 2 divisions and 2 semicircles
— 2 dimensions — each containing 2 countworthy entities.
Or we might suppose that both sides now possess
a division, and there is ‘something between them’
— another sort division — also worthy of counting-attentions.
Our single cut has produced 3, 4 or 5 distinct results. It is startling to see how
many things change, in more than one way — when we execute
the gesture of dividing…
These mysteries of wholes,
separations and gaps deepen explosively when we add a second division.
The 2nd divides the 1st division. and simultaneously the 1st divides
the 2nd — such that neither can remain whole.
It makes no difference whether we cut a perfect cross, or some
more haphazard one — the same outcome applies. Additionally,
our semicircles are gone. They each gain an angular side, resulting
in a triangle with a round outer edge.
Each of the previous halves
is now a binary itself. With two cuts, we have produced: 4 slices,
and either 4, or 8 divisions [depending on whether these are possessed
by slices, or exist in a related but distinct dimension]. If we
count the ‘gap’ however — we still only have
‘one’ — but it is cross-shaped. The resulting
sum would be 9.
1 cut: 2 halves, 2 angles,
2 cuts: 4 portions, 8 angles,
Isn’t it strange how
the gap remains unified?
Isn’t even more strange
that all the ‘distinct pieces’ share this unified
gap, and are actually
connected by this sharing?
Perhaps most shocking of
all is this:
No matter what you do to
those slices, and no matter the speed or dimension this is done
in — the gap-connection is faster than any change which
can be imposed — and continues to connect those slices
more complexly as their apparent separation becomes more complex.
One of my favorite features
of pizza is its infinite general divisibility. Because
of the shapes involved it’s relatively difficult to create
a situation where anyone need get less as a result of the act
of dividing. Because it is so easy to share it equally, conflict
over portions is functionally absent. What is missing becomes
an incredible benefit — one whose true value expands with
each moment of such sharing.
As it relates to pizzas, this
equality relies upon a three-sided shape, and the reason is that
this appears to be the easiest way to divide a round
thing [a pie] so that another thing [a group of people] become
In sharing this pie equally,
we feel at ease — relieved of need to be concerned over
portions or privilege. By dividing correctly, we escape many pitfalls,
and nurture our unification.
Where exactly is the center
of a pizza? When whole, we might
think to locate it with rulers and geometry — but we will
only locate a representation of it — a ‘generally’
Now matter how quickly or
vastly we increase the accuracy of our device of measure, the
center of the pizza ‘dives in upon itself’—
perfectly evading our every attempt to chase it. It appears that
no matter what the scale of our measuring device — or its
speed of change in accuracy — the center of the pie lies
in another dimension entirely — one adeptly capable of evading
name or notice. This means our fist measure is functionally just
as inaccurate at its scale — as any other measure, at any
other scale, might be.
What happens to this center
as the pie is divided, distributed and consumed?
Let’s say you have a perfectly dark room,
and you’re somewhere near the center of this room, with
a very special lamp. The lamp responds instantly to your whim,
and is intelligent. It possesses an infinitely fast switch, such
that no matter what speed you can imagine — the switch can
function faster — in accordance with whatever command you
may invent. All functions of the lamp are silent.
You give the lamp a unique command. To turn on and
off in sequence, such that each cycle, the amount of time ‘on’
is halved. The time ‘off’ will always match the amount
from ‘one speed ago’ of ‘on-ness’, thus
if we begin with 4.5 seconds, our pattern will proceed as follows:
On — Off
4.5 — 4.5
1.125 — 2.25
.562 — 1.125
.281 — .562
.140 — .281
.070 — .140
.035 — .070
All of this appears of little consequence at first
glance — big deal, a flickering lamp. But as we proceed
with this game into the thousandths or billionths of a second...the
light appears to be on ‘all the time’. We simply cannot
detect this frequency of change. Once the speed reaches extreme
values, we will have no way to detect the flicker at all —
no matter what instrument we may bring. We cannot even ask the
lamp what state it is in at any moment — because the state
is changing so rapidly that an answer is meaningless.
The truth of it is that at in the toy we have crafted,
the lamp is definitely ‘off for twice as much time
as it’s on’. But because of the very high frequency
of change and cycling, we cannot detect this
with our eyes because the ‘time on or off’ is infinitesimally
small. So far as we may be concerned ‘we are in light’.
Of course, there may be some hyperbole at play here
— perhaps this specific configuration would not suffice
— and yet I believe it is obvious that the darkness can
gain incrementally upon the light without being noticeable, especially
if it performs this theft at unique resonance-scales. The main
thing I want us to realize is that cycling frequencies can vastly
exceed our abilities to realize what is happening — for
example, the computer monitor you’re reading this on is
refreshing with extreme rapidity — but you notice no flicker
— it appears to be ‘always totally drawn and complete’
due to the speed at which it is refreshing.
When the lamp is off, darkness has true temporal
precedence — effectively ‘it owns time’. If
the lamp is also the friend of the darkness, there are
ways in which the darkness can expand its terrain systematically,
without any possibility of detection — no matter how fast
our instruments may be.
Some speeds aren’t speeds — they’re
progressions, and when you link two of these in synchrony it’s
possible to produce very startling anomalies — similar to
those we observe in moiré and feedback patterns. Since
our ways of measuring are native to specific scales of time, size
and speed they are functionally useless to inform us of the reality
of our circumstance just outside their purview. In many cases
our habits of knowing lead us directly away from those realities
by posing a reductive doll which stands in the way of our seeing
what it obscures with idealized symmetries.
Now let me explain about this lamp....
Suppose that ‘the darkness-phase’ represents
perfect singularity — all moments and participants at every
scale and speed — suddenly united. When the light switches
to off, everything everywhere instantly collapses into a transentient
non-dimensional entity — less than a point. The
whole multiversal symphony of dimensions, beings, places, moments
and activities — is one.
As the lamp switches ‘on’,
a great rushing of re-expressive division occurs — and the
universe is re-established — almost as it was an impossibly
small instant ago — perhaps ever-so-slightly larger and
faster. The dances of separable entities in physical and energetic
relation proceed just as though nothing out of the ordinary had
We’ll suppose then that
when the lamp is ‘on’ all of timeSpace looks just
as our ideas and models expect — from our perspective in
size and speed. As soon as the lamp goes to ‘off’,
all entities, moments [all of time, in fact] and momentums return
to seemingly impossible singularity.
The universe goes missing— with all hands.
become transunified. There’s nothing to exist or exist against
— yet this state is anything but ‘void’ and
is entirely unrelated to nouns. It is a shockingly compressed
energetic and transentient universe — a unityBeing.
and forth — universe , uniBeing — repeating at ever-shrinking
intervals. The dance proceeds like a dandelion of dimensions [each
like dandelions themselves] — arising and disappearing explosively,
faster and more complexly with each pass.
and momentum has multiple positions and kinds of ‘center’
throughout timeSpace, no matter what sort or size or speed of
entity we examine — and the same is true of assemblies of
entities. These are not ‘measurable’ centers —
but are integrated ‘crossroads anomalies’ where various
modes of emanative [e-man-native / e-ma-native] crossover of multiple
sentient dimensions find entrance into ‘our universe’.
As the universe ‘collapses to singularity’ during
the ‘darkness phase’ of the genjiLamp, all of these
entities, transports of relation, and symmetries of any possible
kind dissolve toward their centers like rays of light being retracted
into the sudden inversion of a star. Or like dandelions growing
backwards. This occurs multiple times, sizes, speeds and dimensions
of ‘stuff and ways’. During the ‘off’
phase, everythingOneWhenWhere instantaneously dissolves back to
unity, and during the ‘on’ phase they just as rapidly
re-enmember something incredibly close to their last position.
This activity is akin to the
beating of an n-dimensional heart, which creates and dissolves
its circulatory [and cognitive] systems anew with each cycle, preserving this ‘histories’ of the physical universe between collapses.
Since ‘more than one dimension’ is always in a
unique state, the process sustains maps of ‘re-expressive
position’ [for after the collapse-cycle] in a plethora of
unique ways, each of which evolve explosively such that, not only
are all beings complexifying — but all ways are
doing so as well.
Effectively, this insures that it
is impossible to generate any
form of gap which cannot be instantly crossed —
regardless of how the gap may actually exist or be perceived from
a given position or assembly of positions.
in our universe are actually the opposite of distinct!
Each one, and all of their relational linkages are the manifest
result of uniquely congruent intersections where the dandelions
from multiple invisible dimensions cross each other at angles
or merge. Perhaps there is a symmetry here beyond what is suggested,
especially when we consider the uses and linkages of the metaphors
’heart’ and ‘cross’ on Earth.
Now let’s imagine that
every entity of any sort, and many forms of ‘connection’
who are entities we do not have words about yet, are
being continually ‘exploded’ into emanative separation
and ‘re-membered’ in a living singularity —
what does this singularity amount to?
A: It’s definitely not ‘merely a thing’ (object)
and is certainly more than a ‘creature’.
B: It is a learning-entity of shocking sophistication.
C: It dissolves and radically re-establishes the entirety of time,
being and consciousness with each cycle.
D: It’s versions of
evolution happen at speeds and scales that entirely dwarf anything
we can easily model or consider regardless of the sophistication
of our lenses.
E: In order to be able to
experientially detect any of this one would have to step somehow
outside the system — with the genji-lamp, since the perceiver
and the lamp would both be dissolving as well. [This might cause
various anomalies and distortions... such temporal and biocognitive
If true, it would mean that
our ideas of evolutionary competition are nonsense, and that the
game ‘on this side of the singularity’ has to be founded
on mutual uplift, learning, and rescue — primitive appearances
It might also mean that what
we call ‘gravity is actually the vacuum-effect of this absurdly
rapid yet constant dissolution, as matter vastly transcends the
speed of light during the onset and achievement of singularity.
If this is true, there should be an opposing dimension of gravity
— where the expulsion from singularity is similarly expressed.
Consider also how this toy
accounts for the photon-polarity problems that exist in quantum
entanglement — it invents a new form of speed in the dimension
of connectivity, which any two entities may take advantage of
— outside of tim e..
if this simple toy is vastly in error, the kind of universe it
models is more akin to the workings of our physical universe than
those we’ve been taught to comprehend. And it means all
living beings are One — always — and long before and
above any other model.
C: Day and Night
By day the Sun rules the dimensions of light and
weather. A propoetic emanative explosion of light, color and warmth
is transubstantiated into Life within Earth’s delicate membrane
Color leaps from every surface, water earth, air
and even fire are totally transformed. So bright is this light
that we cannot long stand to gaze upon its unobstructed source.
A single source of life and light is pushing light into onto and
around everything — and even the sky becomes color. The
three phases of the day, morning, noon and evening are three phases
of color as well — for the character of solar light changes
dramatically during each phase.
Twilight comes. The sun is not entirely gone —
but is hidden — departing, just as before dawn it was hidden
Gone are the colors of day — silver and greys
now sparkle mercurially in their stead. The sky is black as ink,
and dotted with thousands of sources of living light.
It is revealed without science that our star is a member
of a network. And again one source of Solar light — a reflector
— and one which draws all eyes on the night-side of Earth
together in wonder, remembrance and awe. The Moon, when she is
visible — serves as both protector and reflector of light.
Though the Sun is too bright to gaze upon, in the reflective lens
of the Moon, all eyes are drawn to nocturnal unification. One
mystery of the moon is this: it occasionally absorbs impacts that
might annihilate large portions of Earth’s conserved ecologies.
So there is a queen of the lights of night, and
she is Luna. Where the Sun presses light into Life, the Moon draws
living eyes to a reflection of their source in light. When the
moon is ‘missing’ from the sky, only the myriad lights
of the networks of stars remain.
Now let us notice what our own minds and identities
do, as these phases arise and resolve. By day we enjoy a single
identity, an inward light of unified source, purpose, history
and moment. The colors around us are reflected inwardly, as our
eyes and senses bathe in them.
At night, time is changed — like the lights
in the sky we are many, with a vast mirror set before them. A
mirror ‘changing in phases’, in which we can see this
story replayed in new moment and circumstance along each lunar
We dine, relax, pursue what we please if we are
not at work — and then we rest.
And so proceed to sleep, a dimension where the single
mind, history, time and identity of the waking hours departs entirely.
Timeless, locationless — we are like the many minds of the
stars — arraying themselves in our personal identity like
a garment, and leading us with a shockingly oracular storying-game
through the halls of a university older than our Star.
And then, we waken, and assemble
our ‘singular self’ again. The sky is filled with
the Shout of Sol, and colors leap to life, renewed by turning
again toward the living energyWaters from the sky.
By day our mind is one, a
single self — and also an entirely unique living
reflection of the unityBeing. By night we become the mirror of
the many, clothed only in shards of the day-identity. We become
the many, masquerading as One — akin with the cycles of
light in which our lives and consciousness are founded.
