Tenacity

You know why you make mistakes don’t you? I’d say you know less than you think you do. Challenge yourself to see more, to do more, to act in ways that bring you to the forefront of technology and science instead of listening to science as a religious word, or scripture. Schools are the reason we err. According to Kathryn Schulz to err comes from the word to move, and making mistakes really do get us going. In college I screw up. In high school, I screwed up too. These things tied me to my work and kept me going. There shouldn’t have to be so much error inherent to life to keep us going.

Monkeys in a tree

Monkey surprise

Nine to thirteen monkeys are sitting in a tree, being monkeys of course. They swing and they dance like normal monkeys do. Sometimes they throw poo, but I don’t expect that. They jump and they swing. They are regular good monkeys. There is just something about thee way that they move that moves me. They are so simple, so dirty, and yet so clean. There is violence, something I can find just about anywhere, but what do I see in the way that they fight that makes me hopeful? I wonder if we could all just be monkeys, attracted to the next branch for simple reasons, solve disputes with violence but without killing another. Somewhere there are monkeys, somewhere there is war without death. Somewhere people feast, and somewhere people act in ways that are primitive but are smarter, more loving than I.

A month or two ago, I published some thing titled Protocol. It was an artsy little piece about how following one form will reveal the most about a path toward success.  In recent weeks I’ve questioned my sanity with this project. I wanted to create and express things. These things were different as I sought to renew ideas and concepts. I wanted to create a new language to explain metaphysics. Like spanish, italian, Japanese, I wanted to create a grammatical structure that required people to think in terms of metaphysics to be correct. In English we are aware of tense and conjugation, but because conjugation is not intrinsic to the endings of the words like in some other languages, anything other than the simple form conjugations are complicated, and there are few people outside of linguistics and English studies who know the rules for these Literary tools for expressing concepts with a flair and a twist to make it seem deeper. I also went on to try to grab people using sexual symbolism, something that often sells; however, both of these things were more potent than people care to tolerate. A language with only one speaker, writing only in that language only appeals to linguists, probably only a few of them.  Sex in itself is an habitual thing. When we first discover it, it is isolated and a category by itself, but it develops into a nuanced form as life grows like a vine around it and through it in all directions.  With the knowledge that I’m not the only one studying this stuff, the things that make people intelligent, I can relax a bit. I can join society. Most of all, I can produce excellent pieces.  I Intend to keep a journal of my little revelations. That’s what this blog will turn into. I’ll try to include all the things that are brilliant and wonderous in little doses, so as not to confuse anyone. over the course of my next stint as a writer I will uncover what It means to be intelligent, and how does one become intelligent.

State vs. Liberty

Attention is the one thing that I’ve never been very good with. Fortunately, with Zedu as a reference, I’ve finally been able to understand focus, attention, motivation, and intelligence. With this new perspective I am able to notice patterns that demonstrate a lack of motivation toward a given subject, a lack of attention, or a lack of intelligence. All these things improve with simple knowledge and application. These simple understandings are natural; however, the government is a synthetic organization that alters natural mental development. All the problems that the government exists to control are easy enough to solve should we develop more naturally, so the government is not practical.

The modern republic is an entity that assumes the right to control individuals based on the extent the people it governs oppose it. This assumed control ie enforced through violence, policing, and lawsuits. The governed must comply with these actions as long as the agencies are not violating their official oath.

This is a fine way to run an organization: the governors have to have a way of getting people to follow. But assume for a minute that I didn’t buy into the republic in which I live. The Government would still expect me to pay taxes and comply with their rules or get out. To put this reasoning into perspective, it is easier to look at a smaller version of the republic and me. Imagine Texas secedes from the union. It is no longer part of the fifty states, now forty-nine. If I was a citizen of Texas, and wanted to be a part of the United states, i would move into one the now forty-nine united states. If I was a resident of any of the other states, but didn’t enjoy living under the federal government, then I could move to Texas, now its own country. A complication arises when it is an issue of unity. It would turn into a huge problem if I was pro-union, or pro-fifty-states. It would also be a problem if i was pro-secession, or pro-texas-republic. Imagine chosing a side. I’m in direct opposition to you, and our two ideals conflict so that only one can win. The republics would use force to execute their desires. They would build up armies and start a war if there is no resolution. A second civil war, or a second revolutionary war is the result. The different names depend on which side you are. The question is, “Would you attack me to impose your ideals?”

This is the argument between Statism and Libertarianism. I claim neither, but i explore both. I expect that the government, wishing to have more capable citizens, would want to have the best method for instructing people and ensuring they develop into the most politically powerful individuals ensuring the security of the government. In a Statist Republic, I can explain how my techniques function and with proof that they work more efficiently and create more jobs, improving the economy, they would adopt my education policy. If I lived in a Libertarian America, it would be much easier because i would not have to go to the top of the clandestine government and expose them to a functioning policy, an elusive thing in a statist government because chosing a policy different from what the governors choose results in my incarceration or hefty fines depending on what laws I defy. America is not a true statist government, but there is so much red tape, that it prevents good ideas and bad ideas, leaving only old ideas.
