Critical Theory Explained

This is important and ties into the use of illogical reasoning which is now being used to thwart logic.

Because FEW people actually understand logic and how to arrive at; or even inquire about truth, very smart people (RFR uses this theory) actually know how to twist facts into conclusions with mostly true even if it means shaving the context or replacing it with their own.

You can find examples of this every minute of everyday by just listening to people relate their ideas, which we know are often ill-formed and repeated from who-saids who are valued and mostly confirm our biases.

Take this example:

“ On Aug. 15, 2017, President Donald Trump held a press conference to discuss an executive order he had signed on infrastructure permitting. Reporters shortly began asking questions about Trump’s initial response to violent protests in Charlottesville, Va.

It was at this press conference that Trump said that “you also had people that were very fine people, on both sides.”

On April 25, 2019, former Vice President Joe Biden declared his 2020 candidacy for the Democratic nomination and the presidency by recalling the events in Charlottesville and Trump’s comments.

“With those words, the president of the United States assigned a moral equivalence between those spreading hate and those with the courage to stand against it,” Biden said.”

But what was split off was the context of the remarks.

“ “But we’re closely following the terrible events unfolding in Charlottesville, Va.. We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides, on many sides. It’s been going on for a long time in our country. Not Donald Trump, not Barack Obama. This has been going on for a long, long time. It has no place in America. What is vital now is a swift restoration of law and order and the protection of innocent lives. No citizen should ever fear for their safety and security in our society. And no child should ever be afraid to go outside and play or be with their parents and have a good time.”

At another session Trump went on to explain.

“So you know what, it’s fine. You’re changing history. You’re changing culture. And you had people — and I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists — because they should be condemned totally. But you had many people in that group other than neo-Nazis and white nationalists. Okay? And the press has treated them absolutely unfairly.“

Whether you believe what Trump said was good or bad, his remarks have been taken out of context and then re-spliced back into dialogue.

For years I have tried to explain this mechanism because it’s use—everyday—is how we hybridise most of our memes for understanding…

I’m often reminded of this quote:

Ariel Durant — ‘The present is the past rolled up for action, and the past is the present unrolled for understanding.’

What Lindsey is talking about is this hybridisation mechanism I have shown for oblique development where we can strip out a meme usually out of the context it’s used and re-splice semantically meaningful chunks to create entirely different meaning and sometimes “new” meaning, which is what is being done in this theory.

TRUMP didn’t say what they said he said, but nonetheless the process was very effective (good or bad depends on your own values)…

But it is held as a truism…something that is not questioned by those who believe it and of course hate TRUMP for whatever reason…because it came from a who-said they do believe.

This mechanism has been in place since humans started developing but it’s now weaponised to serve as propaganda.

Remember the BEST propaganda is partly to mostly true…TRUMP did In fact say there were good people on both sides…but by removing the rest of what he said (disingenuously) the facts were weaponised.

The climate people have done this for years, I think I’ve shared Tony Heller’s video on exactly how they have taken facts/truths and hybridised them in ways that (disingenuously) have distorted the meaning.

Here’s one of the video’s:

Since I have a practical education rather than a liberal arts education I had to go back and research Orwell as Orwell’s quote intrigued me:

“Who controls the past controls the future: who controls the present controls the past.”

As did this one:

In George Orwell’s “1984” he wrote that “Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. History has stopped.”

And this One is currently Referred to as Orwellian…

“The most effective way to destroy people is to deny and obliterate their own understanding of their history.” ― George Orwell

What’s happening today in our culture is the result of a Well-funded orchestration…perhaps flexible adaptive emergence which is being fed on the fly by people who have vested interests in outcomes of elections and more specifically this regressive (it would be their term as progressives) presidency of TRUMP.

The “array” of tactics that are being weaponised by all constituents are in fact breaking new ground and are worth watching and discussing as they are clearly the art of wars.

Both the reason for durability of and the maintenance of the FS-GREEN core is the set of simple ideas surrounding the “F” function, a “rational” decision-making function based on values which will defy logic among affiliative motivation which seeks “interdependence” to serve relationships.

The system is precariously able to interpret reality illogically and is most likely steeped in likability (PC-rooted), sameness (is not fairness Or DQ-BLUE equality which runs in ER-ORANGE as a utility Function) and perception—since perception is not the truth but reality—working through perception without having the constraint of logic (T-mbti), whatever works, is “fair”game through acceptance motivation…this is like the glue that allows the stickiness of crowds…because self-doubt is mostly assuaged through the safety of the group so belonging is closely threaded through the fabric of FS-GREEN.

Remember, there are those IN and those passing through because few can work among these cores for their own benefits, think of CP-RED and/ER-ORANGE as utilising FS-GREEN as stepping stones to more power, achievement, even “avoidance” note that a very large constituency of FS-GREEN now are those who are avoiding the fallout of not belonging—to get later.

So while each situation is more complex than the examples I’ve shown, VD, not ZD provides a lot of explanatory, predictive and problem-solving capability, if values are in play;)

If you have 40 min…Listen

The reason this is important is the number of perspectives that are introduced…in a way that’s helpful to those who don’t have as much information as they need to understand what’s really in play…

I was particular struck by thoughts that Barr triggered or stated:

“We have two ways of resolving issues in our system: discussion and voting…“

Left is now not representative of the liberal values that founded the country and…

Left no longer want discussion and compromise…

Left wants to tear down our society, and institutions…

To design their version of utopian life…where they control us in service if that design. (Notably similar to the super elite at the World Economic Forum.)
Left has created a “secular religion” that has become a “narrative”…

Left — as it has become — support antifa’s goal to create a global communist gov…but more specifically to end the TRUMP administration in any way possible…

Only a few who are truly revolutionary are scaffolded by those who are “cowards” and merely want to retain their political position.

He echoes my contention that things have radically changed in 30 years…that everything is being reduced to politics; as opposed to politics being a part of our lives.

His notation on narrative is pivotal because the idea being aligned with relativism which is running through the core of FS-GREEN as a conceptual system which is why “narrative” rather than “truth” is much more important—this is a profound realisation because what you have in this largest of the “dominant memetic cores” is the conceptual space that enables a broad set of hybrids to “live and thrive” within this system.

This is critically important because the conceptual slave which translates directly to “degrees of freedom” has contained within it a great amount of power and control that appeals across a broad spectrum of the memescape…

Which translates to broad appeal.

What’s most interesting is that had the left not been coopted by those whose narrative is “too far away” (a typical developmental error of “distance”); the left would have been able to easily overpower the right because of the degrees of freedom (DOF).

The right has failed to increase the DOF required for the broad need to create an umbrella that would gather more POV (pts of view); create a more robust heterarchy.

He mentions “rule of law” where the core attribute is that any rule is applied to everyone…

A second attribute is that the rule of law is not used for political means….

It’s very interesting to me that the left would attempt, along with the media to outright discredit someone who seems to be unassailable…

“…watchdogs of the system (media) became the attackdogs in the system…”

have a studied Ari Fleisher since he’s been press secretary because he is unflappable…Barr seems to be similar in that he’s not emotional even as he is attacked and belittled…

It’s a good interview to watch as Barr cites a lot of inflection points as opposed to just answering the questions…

“…the constitution doesn’t take a holidays…”

What I’m taking away is that people who value the law are now contrasted with those who value politics…

“Towards the end, he talks about “intellectual consistency” as being part of the “rule of law”…where he first describes that “decisions are being made impulsively without regard for what the decision means in other similar instances!”

What he describes is a shift in core values, or rather contrast the idea in Gravesisn language that is a notation for “time” as “…to get NOW” vs “…to get later.”

While this might seem trivial, it’s memetically defining in that the 4 systems which emerged from the original Graves primary research in the 50s and 60s: asking Students in his class to “define the personality of a mature adult”—using a juried panel which divided 60% of the descriptions into “4” groups largely represented by a matrix of: express self; to get now and later and sacrifice self; to get now and later.

It turns out that what Barr is describing is consistent with the emergence of FS-GREEN of “sacrifice self now to get now” system which is consistent (intellectually) with what we see happening and being documented as Barr points out Is beginning with political and judicial systems where decisions are being made “Impulsively without regard for “later.”

Because the other “…to get now“ system Is conceptually much smaller but with huge “opportunistic energy” available, that CP-RED (empire building) system energises its FS-GREEN partner’s “get now” approach; evident in how all of the destructive energy that can’t answer what will happen “later” as a result.

Because FS-GREEN has so much more conceptual space for the prior developed cores (CP-RED, DQ-BLUE, ER-ORANGE), the two “get later” systems actually thrive in the larger field of degrees of freedom.

FS-GREEN because it’s been co-opted by the radical left has now created an artificial barrier which is naturally Not present to the “get later” systems that have formed a powerful bond because of the presence of rule of law combined with the stewardship of capital—“To get later” both of which have shown to be formidable in construction of well-being.

I think watching Barr we see someone who thrives within the broad conceptual space of FS-GREEN and brings a necessary complement to the “get now” system.

Yet because of the nature of the twist of “politicising everything“ as THE system vs. politics is a part of a metasystem…the conceptual space is collapsing.

It was an interesting interview, start to finish.

ValuDYNAMICS: A Goal

Fwd: Sacred Sites, Geomagnetic Hotspots, Wisdom Keepers, Homes of the Gods …

Reading through this invite I had an insight I wanted to share.

As context I’ve been provoked lately and want to surface as much as I can about what it would mean to give people tools for this “age.”

 

  1. Each situation calls for satisficement of the conditions enough such that what comes along with or after is an equilibrium of sorts with as large a number of degrees of freedom as possible without weighting or polarising the conditions in such a way as to preclude a direction.
  2. How one understands the situation in order to preserve these degrees of freedom seems as important as any action or no action.
  3. The way in which to bring about resources (attention, intention, alignment, capability and coaching) seems to be through a process of realising that particular values emerge as “best” in allowing the appropriate resources to be applied in sufficient density and frequency so as to preserve the degrees of freedom.
  4. Degrees of freedom seem to be critical in enabling innovation.
  5. Innovation seems to be critical to adaptiveness and fitness.
  6. Therefore that which is not precluded seems to allow that which might emerge.
  7. A personal approach, as an example might be understanding the value of each of our jungian functions: sensing, intuition, thinking and feeling and their combinations.
  8. Or the attractor basins of memetic such as CP-RED, DQ-BLUE, ER-ORANGE, FS-GREEN as an example.
  9. The conditions by which the situations emerge are through the filters of the observers and thus most will be subject to, rather objective with the situations.
  10. It is the objectivity in both the personal and collective frame which seems to denote a proclivity to step back personally and observe the filtering as much as the filters and in doing so, create subtle approaches that allow discernment of the filters, the filtering, the density and frequency of both the problem and the solution which creates a different kind of approach.
  11. This approach may seem natural but it won’t be for most, although to varying extents it could be learned and practiced.
  12. The goals of an approach like this have at their unseen roots a requirement to shift the ego position through moral perspective that would begin to disentangle values, valuing from what is right as right and wrong are perspectival and it’s only the examination of the degrees of freedom that would guide the problem ID and solution Process because what produces the equilibrium where the largest degrees of freedom exist would have elements that could be judged paradoxically: right and wrong for a variety of perspectives.
  13. Personally, we would want to examine—through whatever lens—our own functioning displayed and become aware of the subjectivity that guided our actions and to collectively view each as unique with corresponding talents.

Just some thoughts,

mike

The FULL George Floyd body cam video

We are living in a culture where whatever you can get away with works—especially using legality and of course politics, CP-RED OPPORTUNISM is behind all this FS-GREEN emergence…riding right along with it!

Labella: Drop in COVID-19 cases resulted from Cebuanos show of discipline | Cebu Daily News

This is a great example of what happens in “mythic” cultures.

The lack of education creates susceptibility to the lack of education…but what’s interesting is this…

This “cancel culture” which is a virulent form of PC is even more virulent in “mythic” culture which has a very dense and frequent virus running of shame, which works to an extent to quell early forms of CP-RED…a short system as well (express self to get now—which is why it runs full out in FS-GREENs wake!).

Shame doesn’t work as well in DQ-BLUE…especially in CP-RED culture because DQB turns fear, Threat and Embarrasement into “guilt”…

Like ER-ORANGE turns FTE into “lack” as a dearth of achievement and FSG as exclusion or Low “affiliation” And belonging—which is the very thing that will spur fragmentation—go figure…

There are all kinds of cool memes being spun off now…

Like the idiotic idea that we have control over a virus…

Philippines is reaching herd immunity because of the lack of discipline—people spread it quickly from December onwards…the lockdowns just delayed the spread which they think now was their economy killing quarantined…

This mayor is related to de blasio;)
