Make a Point

June 1st, 2022

Have you read the book, Flatland by math teacher, English clergyman and Shakespearean scholar, Edwin A. Abbott (1838-1926)?  A highly entertaining satire framed in a two-dimensional Flatland, where women are thin, straight lines, lowliest of shapes, and where men may have any number of sides, depending on their social status.  The plot is the frustrated adventures of the main character, a math teacher, A. Square, and his exploration of dimensions and consequences.  A first-rate fictional introduction to the concept of the multiple dimensions of space.

Without range there could just be a point.  Some folks like making a point and for them that might work; but lacking range, no one would get the point.  To make this point would require a phenomena, the power to imagine the point.  Where would we put this imagined point?  To produce a space for the point we would need to produce no-point.  Now we have a gradient issue; how big should the point be counter to the no-point?  Power to be assigned and distributed will need some state of balance to manage and time to allow entropy, reclaiming the power.  We could compress some of the no-point space and produce a point and maintain balance and symmetry.  We could also divide both the point and no-point into any number of variations of point-patterns of equal distribution of power, and still retain balance and symmetry by making time relative to the state of the points.  All the points would be related, same power, and their unique presence via this natural base of relation would create ranges common to all points.  Now we have the foundation of a background, the environment of the no-point, and unlimited threads of potential for the points for a time.  Welcome to the game.

On a long journey, it is useful at times to recall where you started from.  We forget about the requirement for balance which periodic reviews help reestablish.  Get out of balance and you lose your point and the same is true for your no-point.  This range includes all forms of interactive trauma over a point, the mismanagement of your point and/or the destruction of your no-point (environment).  Evolution allows the game to refresh and slowly divide all the elements into smaller bits to accommodate more ranges of potential.  Certainty is some form of death.  I used to do a seminar on fake certainty which was cool because you did not need to die but what happened to value?  Do you believe in  a cheesecake that you cannot taste?  Real for us humans is a pretend standard.  What does I love you mean and how is it working out?  Are you seeking a truth in a no-truth world because the world grew up and perhaps you missed a step?  I don’t have any answers but I have lots of questions.  In our logical system, I believe and preach, you need attention to define good questions and this process leads to decisions that move us all forward because we are connected by our relationship as humans—get the point?
