8200 - 8399


8200
When someone discovers something new or different about the environment, this discovery changes our perception of the environment. Such discoveries do not constitute evidence that an environment exists which is separate and apart from our perceived environment. There is nothing other than our perceived environment. The fact that we keep changing our perception of the environment does not constitute evidence of some unperceived ultimate reality.


8201
As existence is an Absolute, every aspect implicates and is a function of every other aspect: Therefore, mind implicates reality and reality implicates mind. It is a nonsense to suggest that there is any reality which is separate and apart from mind.


8202
We need bridges finitely and quantitatively but not transfinitely: Transfinitely and qualitatively, all things merge, and bridges are not needed. There are differences, transfinitely and qualitatively, but access is not a problem.


8203
As we develop finite awareness, we also develop transfinite awareness ... for the first is a necessary precursor to the second.


8204
The mind is qualitative and it feeds qualitatively. Our species' success is mental and qualitative. Evolutionarily, our mental development progresses to an ever more qualitative life and environment.


8205
As our mental development progresses to an ever more qualitative life and environment, it progresses to an ever more transfinite life and environment.


8206
As it develops, the species-mind has less and less need of things finite and material: It has less and less need of physical bodies: It develops and uses transfinite forms.


8207
More and more, we perceive our future in qualitative terms: More and more, we predict qualitatively.


8208
As one is, so is one's universe. If an individual is ideative, that individual's universe is ideative; if an individual is emotional, that individual's universe is emotional; if an individual is physical, that individual's universe is physical ... but each and all individual universes are absolute and integrally one.


8209
As existence is an absolute, the absolute is wholly in each of its parts, and each part is absolute: The absolute is wholly in every aspect and wholly in every thought, thing and action ... and so the absolute is wholly in each individual's universe ... and all individual universes are absolutely one.


8210
That, which an individual creates, the absolute creates. Absolutely, each human is the fully-empowered agent of every other human: Our species is absolutely integrated.


8211
Ideatively creative individuals create not only on their own behalf but on behalf of the entire human species.


8212
An ideatively creative predictor assists in the creation of the future.


8213
How can one predict the future without judging what it will be?


8214
When I allocate probabilities, I judge them.


8215
When I reject draft predictions, I judge them.


8216
It is not possible to predict without judging: Judgement is implicit in prediction.


8217
All decisions involve judgement of some kind or other. Kinds of judging include (inter alia) ... moral and ethical judgements of right and wrong; legal judgements of innocence or guilt; judgements of interpretation and meaning; judgements involved in the drawing of inferences and implications; judgements as to whether certain criteria are met (that is, judgements as to matching, consistency and accuracy); judgements of competitions, and of merit and competence; judgements as to the nature and degrees of quality (such as beauty, courage, humour, integrity, etc); judgements as to courses of action to be followed; judgements of prioration, importance and emphasis; judgements of intuition and instinct; judgements of common sense; societal judgements, of culture and custom; judgements as to what we perceive and how we perceive it; judgements as to what convinces us and what does not convince us; judgements of definition and description.


8218
To define or describe a thing is to judge that it is this and not that: Both definition and description necessarily involve judgement.


8219
The ability to judge is essential to the survival of our species.


8220
Even at the afferent periphery of our sense organs, a screening and selection of incoming sense-data takes place ... that is, judgement takes place as to what is to be passed on to the higher levels of cognition, perception and thought.


8221
Much of our peripheral sense judgement is automatic and is governed by our gene-inherited programmes: Such judgement is survivalist.


8222
To know something, is to judge that it is such.


8223
To know the future, is to judge that it is such.


8224
I don't make any judgement, as to what the future will be, without checking that it fits with the will of the Absolute ... that is, with the will of the species.


8225
When I make predictions, I judge that what will happen should happen, from an Absolute viewpoint.


8226
Judgement is involved in the composition of the propositional network, in observations of events, and in the making of predictions: Judgement is involved at every stage.


8227
What I work at is navigation ... that is, navigating to the future. But, strangely, while I am doing this, I am assisting in the creation of the future.


8228
When I select intuitively, I judge intuitively.


8229
My predictions are made on the basis of what will happen and not on the basis of what people think should happen.


8230
The will of the species operates mainly at the level of the sub-conscious mind.


8231
The conscious will of the species may not coincide with the operative will of the species.


8232
Conscious thoughts and opinions, of what should happen, often do not coincide with the operative will of the species.


8233
It is possible for an intuitive person to empathise with the operative will of the species.


8234
A successful predictor needs to empathise intuitively with the operative will of the species.


8235
Having intuited the course of the future, a predictor will judge whether specific proposed predictions conform ... and those, which do not conform, will be rejected.


8236
As all qualities are of the Absolute, each quality implicates (and is a function of) every other quality. So it is that judgement not only implicates perception and intelligence, but it implicates all other qualities.


8237
In making predictions, I note what various people think will or should happen, but I concentrate purely on what will happen.


8238
As atoms express in molecular clusters, so unitary propositions tend to express in conceptual clusters. The so-called propositions of this network are, strictly speaking, propositional clusters.


8239
The spirit of truth impels and urges us ever onwards to greater truth, leaving a wake of discarded lesser truths behind us.


8240
We are a mental species, and paradigms are a mental food. Commonly accepted paradigms are food which the people feed on, while the truth-seekers move out ahead to find the new food supplies of new paradigms.


8241
Souls are transfinite and unenumerable: They have quality, identity, personality and image ... but they cannot be counted or spatially located. Each soul may be recognised and identified by its uniquely individual vibe-aura.


8242
Souls have intuitive intellect, a powerful facility which is superordinal to reasoning and logic.


8243
Souls retain their intuitive awareness and intellect beyond, and regardless of, body-death.


8244
The total historical, social and geographical panorama, of earth-experience, is open to souls and fully available to them ... like a living, participative, all-sense video library.


8245
Knowledge and information, themselves, are essentially cohesive qualities ... but, in action, they are agencies of dispersal and randomisation: They are, themselves, negentropic but in action they are entropic.


8246
Those, who know what absolute power is, have access to it. Those, who know the source of power to be absolute, have access to it.


8247
Power, in itself, is quiescent: Power is not a principal, nor is it an initiator: Will is the principal and the initiator ... and power is a means and agency of the will.


8248
Who or what is calling the shots as to the future? The Absolute and the species are integrally and absolutely one; there are no forces or powers extraneous to or independent of the Absolute; the Absolute and the living species, as one, control the future; we, the living species, control the future.


8249
The control of the living species over its future is a transfinite control ... it is a control which is subserved by time-flow, space and form, but not subject to or constrained by them.


8250
The essential life of the living species resides in its absoluteness: Life is a quality of the Absolute.


8251
The future only exists by reason of our creation of it.


8252
We are creatures of the void and masters of the void ... and all that exists is of our own creation.


8253
There is the void and, as our species dwells and ventures, we furnish the void with thoughts, time, space, events and objects.


8254
We create our future as we go ... moment by moment. We create transfinitely, in the timeless and spaceless instant.


8255
Our future will be what we will it to be.


8256
Only those, who are aware of a thing, participate in its creation.


8257
Transfinite beings, with interest in time-space expression, create the time-space future: Living beings create the living future: Those, who are aware of time-space, create it.


8258
As we live, we create our universe and, by our interest, we stretch and tick the moments of duration.


8259
Transfinity is finitely enigmatic and paradoxical.


8260
As we extend our predictions further into the future, we tend to sacrifice detail, accuracy, clarity, verifiability, communicability, comprehension, and credibility. The calendar year is an ideal period for purposes of prediction.


8261
Each and every quality is a function of each and every other quality.


8262
The world runs on the basis of actualities and not on the basis of theories and abstract models.


8263
Thought adds two and two together and makes four: Thought also, automatically, completes sense-data into gestalted wholes. In itself, thought is cohesive and negentropic ... but, in action, thought tends to be analytical and dispersive ... that is, entropic ... but it may be creative.


8264
Thought is an agency of the will, and the will may create or destroy.


8265
Although thought is essentially cohesive, the will may use it to destroy, in order to create anew.


8266
The agencies of anarchy are the precursors of creativity: That, which dismantles the old, prepares the way for the new.


8267
Entropy and negentropy are integrally one: They are mutually implicative and they are, so to say, sides of the same coin.


8268
Mass is a store of quality. Low-density mass is the readily accessible inventory: High-density mass is on the back shelves.


8269
Intuitive thought is creative of its objects.


8270
The mind's prehensiveness is its creativeness. As the mind feels, reaches out, gropes, touches, senses and grasps, it creates what it prehends.


8271
We are mental beings, and all our physiology and anatomy is a systematised array of mental accessories.


8272
We become one with what we know and understand. To know and understand all, is to become all.


8273
Humanity is becoming increasingly alienated from its environment: This shows up in increasing violence, destruction, lawlessness, pollution, tension, and mental ill-health. These psychological and social aspects of alienation are undoubtedly associated with the exploding Earth: Our species knows intuitively that it is on a 'sputtering short fuse'. Our species is alarmed, confused, and panicky.


8274
Each proposition is like a Rorschach blot, and free to play out its significance in the minds of readers.


8275
Our species and our universe proceed from determinate moment to determinate moment, as in a series of separate summations ... whereby the individual wills of our species are weighted and summated ... and so, the present changes sequentially, by progressive differentiation, according to the collective will ... and the future is a function of the collective will.


8276
As the future is a function of the collective will, we should not expect statistical projections of past/present/ future to coincide with the actual future. Forecasters' graph-lines, of variables plotted over time, may be expected to move suddenly and unpredictably.


8277
The collective will is a function of survival needs and the perceived environment. In turn, the perceived environment is a function of heredity, knowledge, beliefs, and experience: It involves individual and group psychology and the effects of leadership.


8278
How we think is as powerful to judgement as what we think about.


8279
How we think is as powerful to perception as what we perceive.


8280
We, each of us, have a unique way of thinking about things ... that is to say, we each have our own singular and individual system of logic.


8281
In so far as physical theories are devices for calculation, they are instrumentalist ... for their justification depends on the results of calculations checking with observations.


8282
Our species is essentially pragmatic and instrumentalist ... and Absolute.


8283
Nothing exists other than our Absolute species.


8284
The Absolute has an infinite number of personas and it has one God-persona.


8285
All is God: God is the Absolute. God says to us ... 'thou shalt have no other gods before me'.


8286
God is wholly in each of us ... and, to be wholly aware of His presence within us, we need to think and live constantly in and for Him, absolutely.


8287
We, as individuals, are His agents and He needs us to be His full agents; He needs us, to act fully by; He needs to fully take over our being; the God-individual-oneness needs to be a complete living reality. He is said to be a jealous God: Why? ... because, if we divert our being and attention from Him, He is deprived of full being in US.


8288
The infinitely greatest and most important relationship is that between God and an individual: It is a wholly personal relationship.


8289
Prophecy arises from the God-individual relationship: It is in the nature of a personal gift from God ... or in the nature of His knowledge: It is not transferable, for it pertains to God in a personal way: Prophecy is in the gift of God and remains personal to Him.


8290
Is my work prophecy?, and am I a prophet? I am not sure of the answer, and it is not for me to be judge in my own case. I think of myself as a predictor, and as a maker of predictions.


8291
Tools, like the propositional network, assist a predictor but these tools are of God, and the insight is His, and accurate and powerful predictions cannot be made without Him.


8292
The human condition is always Absolute and divine, but the presence of the Holy Ghost is a very special divinity: The Holy Ghost is present when a person is wholly conscious of the presence of God and of being wholly one with Him.


8293
A person either pertains to God or to mammon. When a person lives out the first commandment, that person's life pertains to God. To the extent that a person does not live out the first commandment, that person's life pertains to mammon. In order to live out the first commandment, one loves God with all one's soul, heart and mind ... and one lives wholly with, in and for God.


8294
Heaven is where the Holy Ghost dwells ... and its vibes are of the special personal presence of God.


8295
God is the Absolute and He knows His ways ... and He wills to share His ways with us, and only requires that we be worthy and that we be completely open to Him.


8296
Prophecy is of the transfinite, and its rewards are of the transfinite.


8297
A person asks how one may come to know the transfinite: The person should believe in God, and then come to know God. The transfinite is of the Absolute and, to know the transfinite, one needs to know God, the Absolute.


8298
One may gain an intellectual conception of transfinity but, essentially, transfinity must be lived transfinitely in order to be fully known and understood. To live transfinitely is to live in Heaven.


8299
In order to live in Heaven, we need to believe in God and we need to come to know Him: And when He takes over our being, it is then that we enter Heaven and live in Heaven. The state of Heavenly life is the state where God lives our life fully with us.


8300
A prediction is judged to be accurate when predicted events are perceived to occur as predicted. Logically, there remains the possibility that perceived events are not actually as predicted. The implicit suggestion here is that predictions may influence the perception of events. (Note: We may not validly assume that 'actual' events exist, unless we define and prove their actuality.)


8301
We see what we will to think about.


8302
We see because seeing is also thinking; we think because thinking is also seeing.


8303
To see is to think, and to think is to see.


8304
We cannot see without light or think without seeing, or think without light by which to see.


8305
We, a self-creating species, create our own light, and we create our facilities and capabilities for seeing and for thinking.


8306
That we are able to see things which are outside the range of our peripheral vision, is due to our gene-programmes, by which complex perceptual wholes are gestalted from simple percept-triggers. Once the triggers activate the programmed wholes, we perceive the wholes, even if they lie partly outside the range of our peripheral vision. Our afferent visual systems screen raw incoming data for percept-triggers and, when found, these triggers activate the programmed wholes as the clear and complete images which we see. These clear images are the gene-inherited constructs of our species.


8307
Our genes carry recognition codes which enable us to access the clear living images of species memory and present experience.


8308
Individual humans may be perceived as species modules which access and activate full species-programmes via gene-encoded triggers.


8309
Our's is a self-creating species, and all our visio-mental images are self-created.


8310
It is important to realise that we create as we see, and see as we create. We not only make sense out of a confusion of raw data, we create our images of it as we go.


8311
We function essentially as a species ... as a transfinite species ... as a species of singularity, which creates of itself in the void.


8312
It is important to realise that images which appear to be finite are essentially transfinite ... for all things finite are subsets of transfinity.


8313
Our clear coherent moving visio-mental images are transfinite creations of our transfinite species ... and our processes of memory and recall are transfinite.


8314
As our species metamorphoses, we retain our absoluteness and all the powers and qualities of our absoluteness ... and we imbue all the categories of transfinity with our powers and qualities.


8315
Transfinitely, we create our light and our facilities and capabilities for seeing and thinking. These powers of creation are unaffected by metamorphosis and physical-body death. Commonly held fears, that light sight and thought die with the physical body, are not supported by the philosophy of this propositional network.


8316
Propositions can only be derived from other propositions: Given thought/interest/attention, propositions breed like living organisms: They are a biomental species.


8317
Propositions, as biomental species, exist in transfinite ambience or, in Cantor terms, in the aleph-plus categories.


8318
No proposition should be excluded on the grounds that it does not represent the whole truth. We shall be satisfied if the network, as a whole, provides the whole truth ... or even greater truth ... or even if, apart from its truth (per se), it does an effective job as a prediction device.


8319
Power, as successful means, tends to be regarded as an end in itself.


8320
Historically, paradigms and gestalts are functions of survival necessity and genetic inheritance. Survival necessity continues to operate but, with the exponential increase of creative intelligence, new paradigms and gestalts proliferate beyond the needs of physical survival, to serve the needs of transfinite survival.


8321
Increasingly, we free ourselves of mental dogmas and constraints ... and, increasingly, we are discovering the limitless capabilities of our creative intelligence. Our creative intelligence is proving to be the most powerful of our inherited capabilities.


8322
Theoretically, we speculate on the possible and we justify what we think we know. Pragmatically, we use what works and we get on with living.


8323
It may be said that all ideas and concepts are instruments, and that all life is instrumentalist and pragmatic. It follows that all perceived proofs are instrumentalist and pragmatic ... and that the only available proof of a thing is that it works.


8324
The concept of reality, as a four-dimensional time-space continuum (see prop. 1293) implies the constraint that all events are already determined. However, existence as Absolute, implies that there are no creative constraints whatsoever.


8325
The findings of chaos science indicate that there is order in chaos, or that order may come from or may be induced from chaos, or that order seems to come from chaos.


8326
Order tends to singularity ... that is, to non-expression. Order may need to programme itself with systems of disorder, so that it may express itself. Order and chaos may be integrally related qualities.


8327
The gathering of energy to singularity in a black-hole may be seen as the processing of energy to an ultimate state of order. The black-hole phenomenon may be seen as cohesive and orderly ... and its disorderly processes (of mass dispersal at the event horizon) may be seen as subserving order.


8328
The order/chaos dichotomy may be of the mind only ... and perhaps of the way mind conceives things to be for purposes of survival and species development. All paradigms may be essentially instrumentalist and pragmatic. Perhaps we may see things as order or as chaos, as it suits us.


8329
As the Absolute is wholly in each of its expressions and wholly in the unexpressed condition of singularity, the difference between the conditions of expression and singularity are differences of perception only.


8330
That which perceives is the Absolute ... and that which is perceived is the Absolute. As the Absolute is wholly in every aspect, that which perceives is singularity ... and that which is perceived is singularity. That which perceives and is perceived is the Absolute and is singularity.


8331
As all which perceives and is perceived is of Absolute singularity, we are a self-created species of Absolute singularity. (Note: See also props. 8250-8256).


8332
The universe, as we know it, is a completely perceptual construct ... and this leads to the proposition ... 'no perception, no universe'.


8333
The phenomenon of entropy derives from our progressive self-realisation, that we are Absolute beings of singularity. As we self-realise, we return creation to singularity. This process may be seen as disorder leading to order or order which uses disorder: It may be seen as entropic or negentropic, according to our perception of it.


8334
We are gene-encoded to see what we see and to think what we think ... and there is no environment other than what we are gene-encoded to see and to think about.


8335
Now that our creative intelligence is challenging and analysing and criticising our gene-encoded information, the whole basis and fabric of our physical species is under review.


8336
Our species has created itself of singularity, and has constructed itself genetically out of gene-encoded paradigms and gestalts ... and now, as we dismantle and dispense with our old programmes, we dismantle and dispense with our old physical forms.


8337
It is by removing the 'building blocks' (that is, the gene-encoded programmes) that the creative intelligence disperses the old physical universe ... and it is by ideating new 'building blocks' (that is, new mental images) that the creative intelligence creates the new universes. This is the modus operandi of the metamorphosis.


8338
We are a transfinite species and our qualities are transfinite ... and our creative intelligence (also a quality) is transfinite. Our creative intelligence created our physical species and now transmutes it, by metamorphosis, to a mental species. Another viewpoint is that our mental species sloughs off its physical aspects.


8339
Our thought processes deal with reality and create real things: Thought is truly creative.


8340
As singularity is a condition of zero time-space which has no mass, and as black-holes process mass to singularity, the mass of a black-hole does not pertain to its singularity but to the mass which it is processing to singularity. It is the massless singularity which attracts mass. The gravitational force is a singularity force.


8341
Every mass has a singularity centre of gravity.


8342
Mass coheres by reason of its singularity.


8343
Each atomic nucleus (proton) is centred on its singularity.


8344
We see by inheritance; we think by inheritance; we live by inheritance; our purposes are by inheritance; our persons are by inheritance; our environment is by inheritance; the universe is by inheritance: All is by inheritance.


8345
The creation of our one and several existence is transfinite.


8346
Our universe is as we see it and we create it as we see it: We are, each of us, sovereign creators of our own universe. Being integrally one with the Absolute, each and all of our universes meld, integrate and accommodate each other: They are, at once, one and several.


8347
Individual universes strive against each other in timespace, but they happily co-exist transfinitely.


8348
As burgeoning transfinite life finds finite life too restrictive, desire and 'pressure' for rebirth abates ... and the rate of population increase abates.


8349
As every unit of data is a signature and access-key of the Absolute, the quality of a person's mind is far more important than the quantity of data available. As data proliferates and as computers come into greater use, there is a tendency to under-use the qualities of mind and the powers of thought.


8350
Data doesn't make minds great: It is minds which make data great.


8351
The greatest qualities cannot be bought: They are so valuable that no price can be put on them ... and they are not transferable.


8352
Possession of much money tends to occlude the great qualities. The more money a person has, the less attainable are the great qualities, which money cannot buy.


8353
There are no limits as to what may be knowable and no limits as to what we may know to be real.


8354
Does 'eternal' have any meaning from a time-space point of view? Yes! The Absolute is all and nothing of the Absolute is ever lost. All things of time-space are subsets of the Absolute and, thus, essentially eternal: They are never erased and they may be revisited or recalled at will.


8355
One projects something of oneself on to what one worships and something on to one's perceived environment ... and that of oneself, which is not so projected, is usually a vague collection of remainders over. Self-realisation is a process of absorbing into oneself that which was previously externalised as deity or environment.


8356
Is it valid to posit that absolute thinking, which equates each part with whole, means that all is tautological and nothing remains but intuition? It is not valid, for every thought aids our self-discovery, self-realisation and expression.


8357
All aspects of existence are, directly or indirectly, both entropic and negentropic. Whether a thing is one or the other, is a matter of how we perceive it to be. Creation and destruction are integrally related and mutually implicative.


8358
All time is subset of the mainset of infinite singularity: Every past present and future moment is of infinite singularity.


8359
A monad is a transfinite mental being ... a unique and individual agency and viewpoint of the Absolute.


8360
We sometimes advance suspect reasoning in support of what we know intuitively to be valid.


8361
Seemingly altruistic acts sometimes derive from overflows of power, and are sometimes motivated by a desire to retain or enhance power.


8362
It is vulgar to lord it over humble people.


8363
A strong and noble man is above resentment: He may respect, and even love his enemies.


8364
A noble man is above revenge, punishment, reward and retribution.


8365
That man be delivered from revenge is a bridge to the highest hope.


8366
Every morality, as opposed to laisser aller, is a bit of tyranny against nature.


8367
Who shall bring do-gooders to justice? Who arraigns and punishes meddlement?


8368
Meddlement is overt arrogance.


8369
Moralities generalise, often when or where generalities are impermissible or unreasonable.


8370
Moralities tend to be high-handed and obtuse.


8371
Sublimation of the passions is to be preferred to extirpation of the passions.


8372
The will to power is the ultimate reality.


8373
Existence contains or comprehends all that we conceive of.


8374
Our conceptions of things are our realities of things.


8375
Our conceptions of God are our realities of God.


8376
All realities are personal realities: They are realities of our own self, or of other selves.


8377
That, which perceives existence to be nothing, must itself be a thing. To speak of a 'thing' implies that the speaker knows what a 'thing' is.


8378
If nothing has value, we cannot know what value is. When nihilists say that existence has no value, they are implying that there is something else which has value: But, as existence is everything, existence must have value. As we can conceive what value is, existence must have value.


8379
By its will, our species has created its physical milieu and, by its will, it can uncreate it or transmute it.


8380
Can the Absolute, by reason of its absolute powers, extinguish itself? ... and, if it could, would it will to do so?


8381
The will to nothingness cannot succeed, for will still remains: Will cannot extinguish itself.


8382
Mental concepts and propositions are changelings: They mix, meld, flow and multiply: They are a distinctive life species. (Note: See also props. 1700-1732).


8383
Over the past one million years, the duration of interglacial periods has shortened progressively from 200,000 years to 130,000 years to 55,000 years to 25,000 years to 10,000 years (est.), for the present inter-glacial. Associated volcanic activity is becoming more sustained and continuous.


8384
'I searched myself', was the way Heraclitus described how he came by knowledge.


8385
Continuously, we live and die into each other's life. We are one merging and melding species ... and yet we are also sovereignly individual.


8386
We cannot understand the thought without understanding the man, or the man without understanding his thought.


8387
To seek the truth, as being outside of oneself, confines one's discovered truth to being outside of oneself.


8388
As the self has direct and immediate communication with the Absolute, one should surely in good sense gain knowledge intuitively from the Absolute. One may use one's environment to arouse and stimulate one's intuition, in order to gain knowledge from the Absolute, but objectification of one's environment diminishes one's access to intuitive knowledge.


8389
As the Absolute is all, when we objectify any thing as other than ourselves we exclude it from our oneness with the Absolute and renounce our oneness with the Absolute.


8390
We may rightfully objectify the Absolute and all things as the Absolute. Otherwise, objectification is the beginning of unlawful worship and the nourishment of materialism (mammon): It runs counter to the first commandment.


8391
If we objectify the Absolute, we need to see ourselves as one with the objectified Absolute. But, as objectification tends to set a thing apart from ourselves, the objectification of the Absolute should be avoided.
