Pure Ignorance

It is embarrassing; really.

One of our US representatives blatantly and proudly exhibiting her ignorance, and not even knowing it.

It’s not even about what she believes for her values. It is that she doesn’t even know the difference between sex and gender, biology and social theory.

A Further Comment on Biological and Non-biological Familial Relationship

My comment to this person who wrote the letter.

Adding to the advice from the response:

Yes, and …

I would stress the importance of not hiding the actual quality of the situation from your growing child. Of course, it appears that the B or not-B appears a very significant aspect of what is arising in your universe.

Be open with your child in the manner he/she will be able to understand and comprehend with respect to their age. And foster the discussion if it comes up as you all grow in life. Honor what comes up for them, their questions and feelings. Honor your own feelings and thoughts as well, even as it may be difficult, as you may be sad or angry.

Though the issue may be bringing up very touchy issues for yourself and partner, I would not suggest sweeping them under the rug or disqualifying that there is some sort of difference due to you feeling there should not be a difference. The difference is already manifest in the issue itself. This does not mean things have to go any particular way, or that mother and child cannot love each other just as thoroughly as any. It only means that while we attempt to change, we must also address what is actually there, what is actually occurring.

The Faces of ?

This, supposedly ‘cute’ entry in today’s Apple news-supplied article in Inc magazine, which talks about how some behaviors we see as bad actually have upsides:

😶

Perhaps I am a prude and maybe over-into reading, but, what do you suppose is an “exotic bar”?

I read it as “strip club”.

I’m not a jet- setter, I’m not a techie, I’m not 30 years old. I’m not a business venture capitalist or a Backwoods hippie gang-banger. Lol.

Maybe people are more sexually enlightened than in the 60s even.

I’m a pretty sexual dude. Maybe most people are, i dont really know. Ive been to a strip club twice in my life, and both times I wanted to get the hell out of there as quickly as possible. And I drank alot bexause i felt so stupid for being there.

Thats just me though.

If you dig it, or and you are making a good living at it, and theres no abuse either way, I say, more power to you.

But, what message is that little sentence conveying, so apparently so innocent?

I’m probably seeing too much. 👽

Maybe people get drunk and think they speak foreign languages better. Maybe they just turn into assholes and the naked person just learns to play along.

Let the Great Experiment Begin!

Will drug addicts flock to Oregon so they can het high and more high in peace?

Or will the drug problem be solved ?

Or both ?

Let’s get High folks !! On drugs. Or life!

Let’s find out. We’re gonna find out.

Maybe all the other states will have less problems with drugs cause everyone will goto Oregon. That might be good. Oregon will be a big Rehab.

I wonder what the big Depression state will be?

Or the Pdychotic state?

Psychology and Ideology

From “Mental Automatisms“. commentaries and translation of the work of Gaetan Gatian de Clerambault. by Paul Hriso, M.D.

There is ample evidence that shows that medication for mental illness is not as much based in science as it is in an ideology that medicine might have a beneficial effect upon mental issues.

Despite what might be said of why psych meds work, Psychologists do not really know why they indeed do, and in fact, even though some sort of effect has and does occur in many people with mental health issues. What that effect actually is is so vague, and the numbers generally so statistically insignificant given the ever so fast growing number of people with such issues, that it is almost enough to say that they do not do much physiologically, and indeed, their noted effectiveness is the product of an ideological enforcement not very unlike early Catholic ideals, supported arguments and enforcements about the Earth being the center the universe.

From quite near the beginning of what we know now at psychology there has been a concerted effort of career professionals to mold the ideas about the psyche toward what we know as empirical physiology and science. This is to say that even the word science It’s self has been commandeered by a project, a clumping together of empirical observations, that if it were not for the career motive, psychology As an effort to help people With their mental health would probably be a name for a loose set of differentiators, different groups of causal associations from empirical observation andlikely would not be associated under a common theme of physiology.x

The money motive seems to inform and be a sort of gravitas for anyone that enters the mental health field, whether they be counselors, social workers, psychologist psychiatrist neurologist — Anyone who enters the any of those fields is immediately keelhauled into this “empirical science paradigm” were medicine, psychiatry and psychology and the medical model are the pinnacle aspiration for truth, and is where everyone should be properly headed if they are trying to help this person in front of them, or get help themselves.

I question this assumption deeply. For it is really the love of money that is the root of all evil, and if we follow some of my philosophical explorations in this blog, most of the time people are not choosing what they love. So I say responsibility has to do with a self reflection that might not be occurring in this axiomatic reflection of empirical physiological scientific human being.  It is as though psyche-science is a kind of sleepwalking. 

My position on this, though, is not that psych meds do not work or are working due to some sort of mass hysteria. The issue is more that ideological constraint might shape investigators to view the situation along certain lines of causality and connection, and thus motivation and constraint may be due to the supreme importance money and career grant to our sense of the righteous world.x

It is as though clumping of psychology and physiology has become such a religious cosmological identity thatpeople just blindly move along a line of conclusions which merely verifies and confirms that their Nightwatch discovers facts.

The philosophical responsibility is what to do. For the psychological and emotional reactivity that ensues whenever a deeply held an axiomatic truth is confronted, more often prevents change were change is needed. And this is because the emotional activity which informs and it’s connected to subjective empirical truths, as a defense yield and violence appropriate to maintaining that ideological constant, despite what might be true.

To be responsible, then, is to realize that mental health is found through strategies of confronting this bias, rather than pure philosophical argumentation. For, the argumentation more often yields antagonisms which confirm the ideological bias then it does actual progress for human benefit. 

Inconceivably true.

People simply will not understand. Even then…

Imagine a group of musicians, a band, who did everything possible to not be famous and be rich.

They changed their name every show so they would not make a name for themselves.

They made no records.

They were well known in the music community and even wrote songs, actually gave songs to people who did become famous, songs some of which made a lot of money and became well known, some still well known today. They never asked those people for royalties or recognition again still to this day.

One could say that they trusted existence.

This group played extensively around the West Coast of the United States. Frequented Burning Man before it was a thing. They were regular installments at “desert parties” in the Western States through out the 90’s. And the “Tunnel Parties” in the mountains above Los Angeles. Raves and experimental sound festivals and “be-outs”.

They were specifically anti-establishment, but not anti-human or anti-actuality. In fact, with such integrity this group went about their business, so genuine and authentic thier music resonated with people, by 1996 they has become known as the band that one simply knew about, but no one wanted to ruin. A sort of purity left in the world that everyone who knew wanted to keep. To see and hear and experience the group and thier music was pure word of mouth and happenstance.

It is simply unbelievable to most people, and I think that was the point: give people something they could absolutely not believe and they would thus know that something legitimate actually existed.

Most people ask: Why would anyone do that? Why would anyone try not to make money and not be famous? To make an effort in the opposite direction, not simply “letting it be” in the all too typical happy-ending story where then one becomes famous and everyone loves them. Rather, to purposefully make an effort to not have that happen? Simply inconceivable.

And yet the most legitimate confirmation that capitalism is not necessary for the future same results to occur, minus all the bullshit identity crisis and “personal transformations” that we, again, know all too well is undefeatably and undeniably human.

To have some thing distinctly true that exists authentically, that arises and occurs despite all the modern tropes.

People simply cannot conceive of a group of people, a music group succeeding — for all purposes of artistic integrity and popularity– without making money or seeking commercial fame for the simple reason which reflects a certain orientation upon the world which was being challenged then. A kind of challenge which is mostly beyond anyone nowadays, even as it was just barely hanging on 30 years ago, a residue of philosophical motifs. 

And it became, like, this weird situation, this unbelievable situation that began to happen in so many places all around the west, a sort of precipitate from the 60’s. And a code, of sorts, came out of it. It really was miraculous and gave us faith in the world, again, in a weird way.

Of course we think of the book “fight club”, and the quote that comes out of the book,

The first rule of fight club is that you don’t talk about fight club.

The thing is, is that this book drew upon something that was already occurring, and again the author used it to make a living from, as a writer would, as an artist should and would. But where that came from was something that was actually occurring — that shouldn’t be possible — that was kind of more authentic than the existential ‘bad faith’ way we all usually must eventually live anyway….

Because the thing was with this group — that is, if you asked anyone about the group, anyone who knew, they would deny that it existed. Lol. It was the funniest thing! It was the weirdest thing! And they still do and will !!

😆

that’s the true beauty of it, that it still lives on right on front of people’s eyes and ears.

It became like this unwritten code of this large group of people — an amazingly large group — that would show up at these various events. And maybe 4 out of 10 times, maybe 2 or 3 out of every 20 venues …Around certain cities — even in the middle of nowhere– there would be a band that would show up with some stupid name and the people who knew, knew. And the beginning of the show would be like, maybe, a normal crowd for a Tuesday, but after the first few songs, the word would get out and the place would be jam-packed, people standing out on the sidewalk just mulling around, being part of the “be-out”.

And the people who didn’t know just thought it was pretty good and sometimes a little weird. But some would hear the songs, and they knew. And it was the best thing. And then later on you could hear them, a couple years later maybe, some famous band playing some of the songs in a different way slightly, commercialized, solidified, packaged. Think grunge and alternative mostly, but even some of the harder rock songs, even a few pop tunes, were written by this same group of people, unknown and working hard to remain so.

Listen to the old, and even newer, interviews with some of these famous rockers. You’ll hear it if you listen. Foo Fighters; Hole; the Mentors; Rage Against the Machine; Concrete Blonde; even No Doubt. And those were just the ones who’d been around from the beginning.

Well, there’s much more to be told. And maybe I’ll do that as we go on.

This is what the Covert Sound Philosophy was, and is. Except that CSP now has kind of just become kind of a nostalgia. A kind of beckoning back to what was, a real truth, a surety, a kind of good feeling that there is something legitimate in the world that we can hang onto without having it be a capitalist product...or before it must become one.

— and with the full irony intact nowadays as CSP is making records.

Because it is a commercial sound product now for sure. 🤘🏾🧑🏾‍🚀xxxx

The first rule was an unwritten rule. It was a rule that just came up out of necessity, out of an imperative toward legitimacy and authenticity.

Unbelievable. Truly.x

Confirm Humanity

I just did a captcha. And, I’ve seen it before, but for some reason this morning it was phrased a little differently, the reason why we have to do those, and it just said “Confirm humanity”.

😎

I think it’s totally great and it’s totally funny at the same time. But this morning it just entered my consciousness slightly differently than I think even the funny phrase was intended.

For, as maybe some of my readers might now or not, I question that humanity even identifies something that’s common, A common body of creatures called humanity. And one of my posts somewhere I even suggested that if “so and so” is a human being then I must be something totally different because of how ridiculous this person was; and I mean this in a very serious way.

I don’t mean it as some sort of oh interesting intellectual thought experiment. Of course, we could take it as a interesting philosophical thought experiment if you want to. But, I feel when we get to the edges, the perimeter, of what knowing is, what knowledge is, what thinking is, as some thing that arises in the universe, things start to change.

I’ve even pondered in this blog somewhere how this kind of “knowledge of the perimeter” is what has been commandeered by conventional knowledge under the term “esoteric”.  The body of knowledge which conventional knowledge miss identifies under the name of “esoteric” Is really a knowledge that conventional understanding has not experienced, and so misappropriates.

And then we really do get into this idea of what it is to be modern, at that, a modern human being. The very idea of modernity is an encapsulation of irony, a necessary move to either side of the fulcrum which irony represents, And it is the close association of modernity and irony which at once forms the precipitate of a state which arises outside of the individual thinker, but as well, a subject which perpetually ignores the condition of power under which it forms it’s human identity, which is to say, as a functioning global citizen, say.

🥸 So here I am being struck by a phrase “confirm humanity”, and on one hand I understand it’s asking me to confirm that I am indeed a human being as opposed to a bot. Then on the other hand it is kind of an interesting indictment of my presence in front of my phone screen, asking me to confirm that indeed there is a humanity which exists somewhere “out there” on the other side of the screen.
