Comprehension is frustrated by our misconditioned
seeking for the instatic synopsis viewpoint, or call it the search
for Instant Universe which, once conceived, could be some desk-top
model, like an astrolabe, that is IT! Instead, comprehension comes
with patient application of operational terms associated with
very generalized assortments of desk-top items: polyhedrons, marbles,
models constructed from paper, wood and thread. MIND brings light
to the workspace. But first, brain must get out of the way by
placing itself in a subordinate position. This happens out of
acceptance and recognition of the importance of non-simultaneity
of Universe events meaning: the discrete quantum special-case
experiences with desk-top items needed to inter-associate to create
comprehensible models of great metaphysical integrity occur "out
of order" and wildly scattered in linear duration. MIND orders
the sewn in harvested packages thick with demonstrations of principles.
For example: Synergetics 522.00 develops our conception of the
deliberately non-straight line. )recall: the WWII airplane dogfight
(522.23). )recall: the setting Sun (522.21).
With acceptance of non-simultaneity comes a willingness
to strike out in new directions with only the stars to steer by.
We trust INTUITION enough to embark on altogether new scenario
adventures. Like the boy scout with his trusty pocket knife setting
forth into Jungle, so our new era cosmologist space-case plunges
into Universe armed with a plastic tetrahedron and a bag of marbles.
Jungle = Universe (in this system anyway). What unknown
wonders lurk here? The jungle boy knows that Jungle teaches Jungle's
way. Boy does not tell Jungle how to teach. Jungle sends boy a
Snake, boy better be ready. Jungle sends boy a Lion, boy better
be ready. Ready to run! Ready to climb tree! Operational mathematics
is swinging around in the IVM rain forest. Chattering monkeys.
Hoot. Caw. Grrrrrr.
522.00 ends this way: 522.36 Our method of demonstrating
the nature of the special-case experiences out of which the pure
mathematicians' imaginary generalized case of his pure straight
lines was evolved, also contains within it the complete gears-interlocking
of quantum-wave mechanics and vectorial geometry, which are coordinately
contained in synergetics with computer binary "bitting."
Interpretation: it's all here, you just have to already comprehend
what you're reading to get that, and it takes time to develop
all the resonant associative ripple-abilities to over-horizon
loci to differentiate the frequencies all partially overlapping
yet encoded with the jungle village drum beats of so many many
tribes. 522.00 refers to Heisenberg and Pythagoras.
In other words: the generalized concept of "most
economical" is an operational concept meaning that you SHOW
what you mean by doing it as demonstrably as you can. Featuring
the concept is only sign to the reader. The principles emphasized
in 522.00 are present throughout Synergetics. But we proceed from
operational scenario to operational scenario wherein concepts
get produced, refined, honed, in an 'associative environment.
Our ability to )recall... while also tracking now is our
ability to tune-in characteristic frequency bands which may or
may not overlap or coincide with experiences that others are having.
Reading in Synergetics by R. Buckminster Fuller is a unique
experience because Dr. Fuller is deliberately producing full-spectrum
relevance as this is provided by all scenarios in synergetics
working together in tensive relationships even while Instant Universe
never appears. Readers still looking for Instant Universe are
likely to come away dissatisfied. "Shortest most economical
deliberately non-straight line to what end?" they ask? "To
what Temple in the Jungle Heart do we bring this sacrifice of
our time and labor?" Moaning and pouting. Meanwhile, all
the world is out before you. Jungle is never tired of Jungle boys
and Jungle girls. Always new things to show you. Look! What's
this? Boy whips out his plastic tetrahedron and gets an answer.
Actually, we need holographic tetrahedrons. Any catalog got those?
REVIEW: students reading IBM System Manuals sometimes
complain that each section is oh so clear and detailed about the
item the section is about, but each section presumes you completely
comprehend every other section and so the whole System never seems
clear. Synergetics students can counsel: relax, it will all gradually
start to make sense...have patience! (You should look at what
we have to read!).
IBM is still working on its System. You never finish
it. So if you take the time to study the System Manuals, you may
well come to a position wherein you can contribute to the Operating
System itself. Same with Synergetics. In the meantime, become
familiar with the most important operational concepts, the principles
that instruct their use, and the special-case demonstrations that
really show the stuff in action. Manual readers need a
computer terminal close by with ready access to mainframes and
OS managers standing by to clarify and explicate. OS managers
are students themselves somewhat further along in mastery. Jungle
says: you all are students. Teacher is the Jungle itself.
Herself. Himself. Ussssssssnake!! Were you ready? Or caught sleeping?
524.03 All of our experiences are periodically terminated:
the termination characterizes both the physical and the metaphysical
aspects of our observing faculties and the observed phenomena.
There are no experimentally known continuums. Physics has found
no "solids." We have only awake or asleep.
You take it from here. Love, Kirby.
