WHAT’S THE STATIC?

What’s The Static?

How might static (or a low amplitude signal) take part in the formation of our consciousness?

When we read, we concentrate on the words, rarely the spaces between them. But it is the spaces that allow us to consider each discrete series of letters (the information we need to transfer and receive).

What happens in these spaces that helps to group words into their discrete meanings?

What happens in the spaces between the mind’s images and its thoughts?

Gullibility

In Gulliver’s Travels, Jonathan Swift introduced a theme to his book by calling his main character “Gulliver,” a corruption of the word “gullible.” Throughout his travels, Gulliver shows himself to be gullible, believing things he’s told to the exclusion of all logic.

Here we look within the individual mind and trade the word “partner” for “template”.   How many of us have ever been in a codependent situation?  All of us, I hope. Because I believe templates (see Love and Loss) don’t just form within our brains in …

Love and Loss

  Is there a difference between reaching into the past to find someone you loved but  can no longer reach and reaching into the future to find someone you love (or might love), but might never meet?  Let me give you an example. People around me are forever mourning the loss of touch with a …

God

Where, might you ask, do I stand on the existence of God?  I ask back:  Does a businessman accept that any system can be managed effectively by both top down and bottom up leadership and organization?  I believe in both.  The bottom up is, perhaps, the natural selection way relationships or boundaries have of creating …

Identity

  [I’m throwing out lots of ideas and questions here that I hope to clarify in later postings.]  What if it’s not how we got to be us, but our unique configuration that determines our unique consciousness?  So, does the shape, independent of anything else, determine our unique perspective?  The above idea might make sense, …
