Network Propositions
3300 - 3399


3300
God (the Absolute) speaks to himself through us. In every conversation, God is wholly in each person present ... and, when each one speaks, God speaks.


3301
Order is being internalised. That, which in the past has been perceived as external, is increasingly being perceived as internal.


3302
As we absorb the quality of the external, we internalise it. Ecological depreciation is indicative of internal appreciation.


3303
It is a matter of awareness. If a person perceives quality as external to itself, such is its reality: If a person perceives quality as internal to itself, such is its reality.


3304
If a person believes in a certain state of affairs, its powers and actions are limited to the parameters of that believed state.


3305
If a person believes all quality to be internal to itself, there are no limitations to the powers and actions of that person.


3306
Communications internalise the external. Increased communications internalise that which was previously perceived as external.


3307
Communication is a major entropic agency: It is a function of the creative intelligence.


3308
That, which we are aware of and understand, we internalise ... that is, we identify with it.


3309
The external is the unknown: It is that which we have not absorbed.


3310
Each person differs in the magnitude of its externalisation ... that is, in the magnitude of its unknown.


3311
As, collectively, we internalise our environment, we dissipate its forms. It is we ourselves who randomise and singularise our environment.


3312
There is nothing but ourselves. We are the Absolute ... and we are in process of discovering ourselves. When we have fully discovered ourselves, we find that nothing is external ... for we are all that is.


3313
External forms are the objectification of unrealised quality of the Absolute. Forms are food for us ... which are waiting for us to absorb. We absorb some of it physically and some of it mentally and some of it spiritually ... but, one way or another, we absorb it.


3314
The multi-paradigmatic approach to truth is far more comprehensive and effective than the uni-paradigmatic approach. The many-view approach gives us a better appreciation and understanding of the action than a one-view approach. Let us use the analogy of a televised football match. If we take only one camera to the match, we will get inadequate television but, if we take 500 cameras, all shooting from different angles, we will get very good television ... and viewers will have a much better idea of the action. In the past, we have tended to use the one-camera approach to truth far too heavily and this has restricted our understanding. The propositional network methodology is a multi-paradigmatic or multi-camera approach to the truth, which brings a large number of diverse viewpoints to bear in gaining understanding of the truth and the future.


3315
The future has a fey quality about it ... and, to experience the future in advance, is to experience a dreamlike state ... a state of transfinity, where time and space melt and meld into oneness. It is as if we were taking a magic-carpet trip in the land of deja vu.


3316
The network is a kind of magic-carpet to deja vu ... a magic-carpet to transfinity.


3317
Everyone, who takes a carpet trip, helps to make the trip happen.


3318
The network is a means not only of knowing the future but of making the future.


3319
Back in their present, the carpeters live-out the certainty which they have experienced and events fall into place. The future, they have experienced, determines its pasts ... that is, determines the continuity of presents of the carpeters.


3320
Each person, who hears and thinks about the network predictions, can do nothing other than live them out. To see and experience the future is to make the future.


3321
The magic-carpet experience does not involve fatalism: The carpeters participate in the making of the future. To travel in the future is to make the future.


3322
Once on the carpet, you stay on the carpet: You can't get off, and you don't want to get off. It's like a timemachine, by which one enters transfinity. Once you step on to the magic-carpet, you become a transfinite being, and you remain a transfinite being.


3323
The wonderful thing about the network is that it is a means by which consciousness is transmuted to transfinity. That is its magic.


3324
Once a person sees and accepts the network and its predictions, that person becomes a consciously transfinite being. We are all transfinite beings but most of us are not consciously aware of this. The network enables us to leap or bridge the awareness gap, and to become consciously aware of our transfinity ... and to consciously enter transfinity and to know that we belong there.


3325
To listen to the predictions, is to stand at the gateway of transfinity ... and, to accept the predictions as truth, is to enter into transfinity and become a self-aware transfinite being.


3326
The semi-trance, bemused, dream-like condition of those who contemplate the network or its predictions, is a transfinite condition which removes them from the cogs of finity. It is like changing into neutral and finding that you are in a new super-gear.


3327
The network is the wisdom of countless minds, for each of the included viewpoints represents a host of like minds. The network is our collective selves: It is a quintessence of human understanding ... a quintessence which is qualitative and transfinite: It is a kind of transmutation device of our collective making. If it has a magic quality, it is because we ourselves have a magic quality: We are sovereign and absolute beings, and we can do whatever we will.


3328
It is we, ourselves, who make this universe. Note that the word 'make' is used here, and not the past tense form 'made'. We make the universe transfinitely: It is a transfinite creation, of the eternal now. Contemplation of the network transmutes our awareness into the eternal now ... and we realise that we, ourselves, make the whole thing. There is nothing apart from us: We are the 'all', upon our void.


3329
To accept the predictions is to become one with those who create the future. Whether by faith, belief, love, conviction or reason, those who accept the predictions also create the future and become one with the future: They become part and whole of the host of the future.


3330
Our human objective is to realise that we are transfinite beings.


3331
An attainer is like the eye of a hurricane, quiet ... and all is turbulence around it, as finity (and all its forms) reverts to singularity.


3332
The greatest awareness is everyone's awareness, and no one is excluded from it.


3333
Each one of us has an indispensable role to play and each is a child of the Absolute and each is absolutely important.


3334
To know the future absolutely is to know the Absolute absolutely: To know the future absolutely is to be absolutely one with the future.


3335
The transfinite life is like a very real dream-state ... where we see all colours and forms clearly and where we use all the senses fully, and the total experience lacks no aspect of reality. Most of us have experienced such dream-states. In the transfinite life, the monad spirit has no need of a physical body.


3336
In the final physical phase, the unknowns of the physical universe become fewer and fewer. In the d6nouementphase, all future events will be readable in the parade of past and present ... and events will move quickly, like a film running fast to its end.


3337
From now on, everything will take on a dream-like, deja vu quality, as we progressively realise our transfinity. This dream-like state comes with the final stage of our metamorphosis from finity to transfinity.


3338
From a strategic viewpoint, the future is an unknown, upon which the predictor gathers intelligence. When he reports back, he may not be believed and his reports may not be acted upon. Such has always been the fate of intelligence gathered concerning an unknown force. Of course, if the predictor's reports were perfectly reliable and if everyone received them and understood and acted upon them, options would be reduced to one possible outcome. To the extent that all actors believe in the predictions and act according to the predictions, the predictions are self-fulfilling. Apart from the predictions themselves, three aspects become important namely, communications, acceptance and ensuing action.


3339
It is pointless to go to great lengths to develop predictions, unless one also ensures that the public is aware of them. The marketing of the predictions is important, in order that the predictions be not only widely known but also widely accepted. If the predictions are widely known and widely accepted, they will be self-fulfilling, as to ensuing action.


3340
I am successful at prediction for the following reasons:


3341
We have a general heating of the planet. We have the core explosion coming closer to the surface and we have Greenhouse heating and ozone-depletion heating.


3342
It is noteworthy that creative intelligence is cool by nature but conflictive (heating) in effect. This is the 'hurricane-eye' characteristic of the creative intelligence.


3343
The creative intelligence is in the biosphere, and here again we have the 'hurricane-eye' characteristic. The biosphere is cool, while above and below is heating up. The creative intelligence needs a cool ambience for its operation.


3344
Volcanic energy (via the stratospheric veil's deinsolation) has a refrigerative effect upon the troposphere and the biosphere.


3345
We are moving into COLD conditions, a few years hence, when the energy inputs of most activities will exceed energy outputs ... that is to say, most activities will be carried out at a loss.


3346
Increasingly, enterprise will be less benefit-producing and will be increasingly involved in the protection, maintenance and re-distribution of wealth, rather than in the creation of wealth. Enterprise will become more informal and less law-abiding.


3347
Mankind subsists by its ability to derive energy-outputs in excess of energy-inputs: This is its modus vivendi and modus operandi. Further into the COLD, a few years hence, this ability will abate significantly.


3348
The stratospheric veil, of 15-30 kilometres altitude, has very important deinsolation effects upon global climate. The veil is composed of sulphurous acid vapour, tiny salt-water droplets, and fine volcanic ash and very small desert-sand particles. Sulphur-dioxide volcanic emissions, forming sulphurous acid aerosols, are the most important single contributor to global deinsolation (via the stratospheric veil). As Pinatubo's sulphur dioxide emissions have been estimated at 15-20 million tonnes, we may expect major global cooling until the mid 1990's ... and further into the future, if additional major sulphur-volcanism occurs. The cooling of the stratospheric veil pre-empts the warming of the carbon dioxide and methane Greenhouse gases, which are present in the lower atmosphere. The sun-rays, occluded by the stratospheric veil don't reach the Greenhouse layer and, therefore, can't be retained for warming. The ongoing Earthcore explosion will cause increased sulphur-volcanism and an intensification of global cooling. This thesis is central to the geological and climatic model, upon which many of my predictions are based.


3349
It is all very well to look at what others have done and are doing, but you are here to do your own thing. You are here to pioneer and fashion your own universe, and you are its only seed ... unique and absolutely special. Get on with the job of being yourself. Everything you need will be made available to you.


3350
Belief is natural, not logical.


3351
If the exercise of reasoning was ever carried to its logical conclusion, it would destroy all assurance of anything.


3352
An idea is true which successfully leads one through the labyrinth of experience. An idea is a tool.


3353
The act of believing tends to make what is believed more true.


3354
Activist philosophy sets us free of conventional wisdoms. 'Out of every position one may have adopted, out of every finitude, we are expelled: We are set whirling'.


3355
Science must, in the final analysis, be an account of sensations: No other statements can have any scientific significance.


3356
Existence is an Absolute and all events are of the Absolute ... that is, they are of the Absolute imperative.


3357
Prediction science is not concerned with asking 'what should happen?' but with asking 'what will happen?'. Prediction science is concerned wholly with the Absolute imperative.


3358
As the Absolute is complete and perfect, all its actions are perfect for the whole ... and as the Absolute is wholly in each of its parts, all actions are perfect for each part, as well as for the whole. It follows that all outcomes are perfect and that prediction science is concerned with perfect outcomes.


3359
When all information bearing upon events is known, events are seen to be perfect. Individuals, with their individualised data, may perceive certain events to be imperfect. The perceived degree of perfection is relative to information and perspective.


3360
The true is that which works.


3361
By disemploying a person, society alienates a person. As all persons are mutually implicative (societally and absolutely), the alienation of one is the alienation of all. If we care for others, we care for ourselves: If we neglect others, we neglect ourselves. If work is scarce, it is better that we should share it. Certainly, charity is better than greed and alienation, but the sharing of work is better than charity ... we all work together in God's fields.


3362
Value, meaning and purpose are the three principal categories of life.


3363
Philosophical questions are essentially semantical and about the analysis of value-terms.


3364
No scientific hypothesis can ever be conclusively refuted, since one can always adjust other hypotheses to protect it.


3365
Music is a transfinite ocean, of potential and expressed sound: It is an interface, of finity and transfinity, which is accessible to all. It knows no barriers of race, language or learning: All may listen, enjoy and participate in musical communion: It has absolute universality.


3366
The preference for one term, over its opposite, in untenable. The privileged term is constituted by what it suppresses, and it never achieves perfect identity or conceptual purity: It is always contaminated by the marginalised term. (Note: This is a deconstructionist view).


3367
Ideas and practice work together as instruments. Ideas relate experience, making prediction possible, and are in turn tested by experience. Theories are instruments for deriving predictions. (Note: This is an instrumentalist view).


3368
Knowledge comes not by immunisation against the chance of error, but by precautions against possible errors.


3369
Existentialism is usually characterised by some hostility to abstract theory ... for obscuring the roughness, pain and seeming injustices of actual life.


3370
The nature and limits of the thinkable, both in theory and practice, have changed more often, more radically, and more recently than we tend to suppose.


3371
Art makes no less a claim to truth than science.


3372
The only consistent way to endorse empiricism in religion is to endorse mysticism. The empirical demand is that one must have experience of that which one believes.


3373
It would be better to follow the myths of Gods than the myths of scientist5: The Gods are more human and more interesting.


3374
A great deal of the old is preserved in even the most fundamental revolutions.


3375
Before the collapse of communism, the thesis of capitalism and the antithesis of communism stood apart. Now, the synthesis of the two is able to emerge.


3376
We select our environments, observations, perceptions and understandings: Everything is of our own selection.


3377
Understanding grows as history unfolds: Interpretive horizons are enlarged and fused with others gathered from the past.


3378
Understanding is the process of the coming into being of meaning.


3379
If something different had occured, the outcome would have been such and such.' This type of comment and discussion is pointless, for things can only happen in the way they do. It is fruitless to speculate on what might have happened. Existence is perfect, and all its outcomes are perfect.


3380
Singularity, chaos and differentiation are mutually implicative: They are imperatives of the one continuum.


3381
If we are convinced that something exists outside of our minds, we will make it so: If we are convinced that existence is of our minds, we will make it so.


3382
Scientific revolutions institute new paradigms incommensurable with the old.


3383
Contemporary thinking is mainly one-track thinking. Why do we follow each other?, and why do we not think for ourselves? Where is our spirit of adventure? Let us break new paths intellectually and quit 'naval-gazing' at computer-screens and television sets.


3384
Criteria of scientific truth are contingent and perspectival.


3385
Detached objectivity is impossible.


3386
Our philosophy is a function of our biology: Knowledge is biological.


3387
A conceptual system is better if it is simple, comprehensive and free from internal contradictions. While such a system is more useful, it is not necessarily more truthful.


3388
Scientific laws are conceptual tools: They cannot be inductively proved from facts.


3389
The universe is a society of minds, in close relation to each other.


3390
He, who has his fill of quality, makes it available to those who lack quality: This is a qualitative thing to do: This is natural, qualitative morality.


3391
Many surround themselves with quality but are not ready or able to absorb it: Such do not yet have their fill of quality.


3392
The degree of nobility of a person is the degree of respect that person has for his/her enemies.


3393
Existence is a function of conception: That which we conceive, exists.


3394
All our thinking and information is biologically encoded. That we can predict events indicates that the encoding is transfinite. Our encoding must embrace all existence and all expression. There is nothing extant except us.


3395
Once we know the nature of our being, we know its future. To know our being transfinitely, is to know its future transfinitely.


3396
The entire universe is of us and one with us, and it all intercommunicates. We, the entire universe, are one transfinite living being, which is in process of multitudinous and varied reproduction.


3397
We create what we will and do what we will.


3398
Each person proceeds with the creation and living of its own universe.


3399
Our being, creations and acts are transfinite. Our future is of ourselves, as also our past and present.
