How to Create and Limit

April 29th, 2018

We know that science is based on objectified, predictable and consistent ideas.  This becomes part of what we term structure or rules; the “truth” for now.  Did you know that the speed of light, force of gravity and most of those other ideas of “truth” in fact vary regularly?  The consistency of these ideas is an assignment.  Someone is assigned the power to set a standard.   To explore this process of assigning and how it changes over time we need a model or a story.

By design we attend to what has our attention now and need to lay out the progression of events in a narrative for anything that develops over time.  I imagine that several individuals had entertained the vision for television.  Yes, it started with imagination and someone may have gained credit because they were the first to write about it in a science paper, the first to build a working model, the first to design a prototype for manufacturing, and even the first to place it in production.  Inventors and designers may hold patents.  Manufacturers put their name on the product.  If a retail store buys some inventory they own the merchandise.  If you go to the store and buy a new TV you will own the device.  When it wears out (all objects have entropy) the county landfill will gain ownership.

Creation or imagination is always the first step but a close second is the power to make assignments.  Giant step here, when you exercise that power of assignment you limit the target and start the clock of decay.  This is the human checks and balance system.  Imagination gives you the range, everything that you can be aware of now, to sort through and make a decision.  If too much data for only one range it will push you to threshold—deer in the head-light experience.  The human default is to make up a story and reduce the event to a “tall tale” to share and inspire reactions from others.  The objectified story about a large or complex image is a report; past, done and  fades your chance to create now.  You can assign that event as done without any action and use the story to justify.  If you create a model, same image but scaled down and internalized, you still hold all the wholeness of the data and you may make a quick decision and act.  Both are in fact assignments but the model allows for creation now, a decision and done, whereas the secured story places the event into an opportunity missed.  Illusions and timing are very important.  Remember, life is movement and balance.  A quick intuitive hit is a reaction to familiar and not a decision.  Attend longer to an event and allow for more detail to generate a model and then decide.  Remember, you only need to develop a model when the range of what you are aware of in an event is too large for one image.  The secret is that a representation for something large or complex (external) is secured internal at a location and kinesthetic.  Dreams are models of possible chaotic events and internal.
