Spiritual Protoplasm

The brain seems like a self programming protoplasm, like an expression of an even more fundamental, spiritual kind of protoplasm.  As if the world were the expression of a reconciler of self programming programs.  As if such were the building blocks for all interpretations, representations, and manifestations of the world.

Liberals soon fall to selfish abusers because they are conditioned with no moral backbone to sustain them. They found that the brain is not a blank slate and from that convinced themselves fhat genes are destiny. Because they believe they are "born that way," they rationalize all manner of depravity. They fail to consider how genes may facilitate synapses that are neuroplastic enough to facilitate two way influences between brains and cultures. They assumed all conditions of characters and cultures could coexist, without some being irreconcilable except to dominate others.

If one does not seek to serve a caring Reconciler, then one will more likely fall to a deceiving and false reconciler. If a parent fails to guide the associations offered to the brain of his child, then his child will bond with whatever random associations happen immediately to gratify him. The way will be left open for his child to be groomed and grooved under the rule of all manner of hateful habits and depravities. A child who otherwise could have been nurtured to become a healthy and happy contributer to decent society will instead be exposed to all manner of selfish persons and memes that sense opportunity to bend him to their purposes.

A brain is not a blank slate, but it is neuroplastic. Whatever the ultimate building block for manifesting representations, it seems to exhibit a quality of feedback for programming itself. In that sense, it accumulates capacities for self programming, which can fork either towards sustainable caring or hateful enslavement to immediate gratifiers. The liberal idea of "progress" seems to be to serve the immediate gratification of whatever impulses they were born with as infants.

Leftists tend to be collectivists in an odd way, that is, as infants crying out to be gratified. If parents decline to gratify their every desire, they look to their tribes or states. Once liars promise to gratify them in order to deceive and rule them, infants sally forth against all who want to teach them to become individually responsible adults. Leftists have evolved in their Marxism. Their slogan is not, Workers of the world unite. Their slogan is, Infants of the world, you are entitled.

What keeps Palin so wisely centered as an American ADULT is her spiritual wiring. That is why she is not a useless leaf blowing in the wind. Culture affects brain wiring. Competition fluxes culture, which fluxes brain wiring. The flux effects are delayed, but two way. To the extent brains and cultures celebrate immediate pleasure, there is little reason to expect progress in any directional as opposed to random sense. Even as weapon technology advances to delay warlike competition, the warlike competition, when it finally bursts the dam, will more likely be devastating, taking us back to rubble. Not even preserving scientific and technological knowledge would conduce to decent, sustainable, or progressive civilization.

To progress towards decent and surpassing civilization, cultures and brains need to become more spiritual, that is, to become more self programming towards seeking decent and surpassing civilization than merely to seek and worship power to acquire immediate and random gratification. An overarching, spiritual like meme is needed, if cultures and brains are to hope to become wired towards "progress" that is of a more lasting flavor. Parables of wisdom, such as of Jesus, can be taught for such purpose, as societies' pilgrims become more receptive. But, to commit such teachings to the flames of gay and immediate gratification is to commit "progress" to random infants in adult bodies. IOW, to infantile cycles of random ruin and rubble, with little "progress" to carry forward for our progeny. That is why faux Progs, even with all their elitist apparel, come across as so infantile when measured against Palin.

The American dollar is based on no-thing except the good faith of the American people. Except, many among America's bankers and oligarchs no longer carry much in the way of good faith. Rather, they deal in flim flam, contrivance, and deceiving the feeble and the young in order to reduce them to useful idiots and debt slaves.

Being made into useful idiots, Progs want to toss out the source of good faith, God, with the bath water. They think they can reconcile purposefulness without respect for a Reconciler. I can understand scientists' frustrations with unscientific religious literalisms about materiality. Moving mountains with faith and all that. The problem is that many people of a scientific bent are unable or unwilling to abstract beyond material-based literalisms and measurability, and they presume the brains of everyone else must be similarly confined. They want the building block for everything, including their ideas about moral purposefulness, to be reducible to the measurability of an ultimate parti-icle or a self-ish gene.

I doubt such concepts can much inspire decent civilization. I think they may get closer to what may suffice the more they recognize that, ultimately, every measurable thing, and every bubble that avails interpretations of matter versus anti-matter, reduces to no-thing that is measurable. But that no-thing is not nothing. It is the Reconciler.

Like a source-essence that meta-vibrates the binary-coded feedback by which it, as the programmer of itself, continuously unfolds and reconciles its self-programming. IAE, an humble regard for the Reconciler would avail our coming together to respect its parables in their relevance to our own cooperative experiences. Scientists presume attractors facilitate the expression of the web of space-time-matter-energy. I conceive that a Reconciling Attractor programs the unfolding expression of moral appreciation. All we need do to appreciate as much is to reason together in e-motive respect of it. For that, Christ gave us as much a map of parables as seems pertinent to our situation.

Events do not unfold in pre-determined, one on one, causal fashion. Before each event, there abides an array of possible, potential outcomes. But only one amomg the possibilities is chosen to collapse into manifestation. So then, what is the "cause" of its measurable manifestation to our appreciation? Is the cause pre-motivated, or is it e-motive-ated? What role does emotive appreciation play in the feedback by which events are reconciled forward? In "the measurement problem," what is the apprehensive role of the observing measurer? I suspect emotion is innately tied to appreciation, which is tied to purposefulness, towards which we direct our reasoning. How one emotes about and appreciates an event affects how he reasons about it.

This is why objective purposefulness cannot be entirely separated from subjective appreciation. This is why it is important, when we reason about what we should do, to come and reason together. This is why it is important to have spiritual forums to inspire us to do that. With or without that, there is no preset system of objective rules that can tell us in every detail what we should do. Without that, Progs, Commies, and Muslims tend to become ever more intrusively regulatory and thus to lose their participatory will as individuals, thus to surrender their humanity.

We have to make leaps of faith. When we come to reason together, we tend to make such leaps, in what I would call good faith. Whatever the meta source-essence that facilitates our coming together to find and give expression to our unfolding purposes, I call that God. Insofar as you believe in that, to my lights, you believe in God --- however much the word may trouble.

I consider the various meta-phors to be less important than the good faith coming together. I think that is what Islam short circuits. It brings people together to wear a strait jacket, not to reason together to find ways forward. It short circuits the purposes that give definition to being human. Insofar as it short circuits free thinking about God and purposefulness, its practitioners tend more towards monstrosity than towards religion.

You are pre-supposing that there should be "freedom." And I agree. But I think that is a meta value that stands above the realms of natural and manmade laws. What should I tell my child when he asks, "Why should I, upon chancing to acquire enough power, respect the freedom of anyone else?"

If one condemns both statism and God, then to what should one look for guidance concerning purposefulness, meaningfulness, and justice -- apart from "everyone do as he can and wants?" Can a parent raise a decent child in that way?

Your point is well taken, that law ought not to be made a religion. Still, I think spirituality ought to help inform how law evolves. Until the invasion of the statists, collectivists, pagans, and Mohammedans, America seemed to be evolving imperfectly but humanely and well enough under a general conception of Christian values.

It's not that there are not qualified blacks. It's that the blacks that are qualified tend to be affirmatively recruited to other functions, even when barely within their capacities. Affirmative action is a racist version of the Peter Principle. Happiness consists in living within your means and your capacities. Progs are affirmatively unhappy.

In front of the cameras, Congress dances for the people. Behind the curtains, it works for the cronies. Why? Because decency is dead, oligarchs have tipped the balance of power, and the 17th Amendment was gifted to sell-out incumbents. The bases are loaded, it's the bottom of the ninth, and the republic has fielded rinos.

Since the dawn of recorded history, most people have not thought dispassionately. They have always needed goats to blame. When times get harsh, they fire up the blame and the goats. Our elites have perfected the use of "education" to keep the pilot light on, to keep these people at a slow burn so the heat can be turned up as opportunities and dangers unfold. Once these people constitute an electoral majority, goats begin to tremble. Most people do not connect the dots, even when the handwriting is on the wall. Decency will not survive these people by appeasing them or by failing to toilet train them. Their leaders, like the NYT, falsely "empathize" with emotional infants while they blame responsible adults. (Mayor MasterDeBlastio to police: No empathy for you!). Justice will not deal nicely with this state of affairs. Not to perpetual infants, nor to those who coddled and curdled their milk.

Empathy is much too often misused as a concept. Consciousness has to do with modeling the world and yourself in it. Empathy can be thought of as modeling others, as if your consciousness were in them. Responsibility consists in how one advances purposefulness beyond infantile demands that would sacrifice everything to immediate gratification.

Responsible empathy does not seek to habituate others to perpetual claims of entitlement to immediate gratification to be provided by others. Responsible empathy consists in helping others to learn to act as adults, not as infants, thrashing and lashing about. The cop killer was an emotional infant, and he was made that by entities like the NYT. My empathetic response to the NYT: In the name of decency, it's past time for you to grow out of diapers and become more than an alimentary canal, with a voracious sense of entitlement at one end and no sense of responsibility at the other. (Tip to RWR.)

What is the difference between rinos and dinos. I think the main difference is as follows. Rinos claim to want a flat tax. Despite protestations, they really want Obamacare, but they want it paid for by middle class individuals who are healthy and employed. Rinos know they won't get a flat tax, so that's just window dressing so they can try to reduce rates at the higher levels, get a few of their own elected, and keep the people divided.

That way, the people don't notice that we really have only one party: the rino-dino party of collectivizing collectivists. It's purpose is to sell influence to a different class from the Dems, undermine our Constitution, erase our borders, impoverish the middle class, and feed it to the welfare bloc of voters. The rino establishment provides the Wall Street funders for Progs and the foundations for supporting academic and elitist umdermining of the faiths, families, and fidelities that are essential to the preservation of a republic as opposed to a hierarchy of elitist hegemony. The rino political dealership sells cadillacs, while the dino political leadership sells chevrolets. Rinos and Dinos both shill for Government Motors, but their main product is debt --- which they both sell abroad.

The Left sucks, Libs suck, Progs suck, and Rino Progs suck. There is up (freedom) and there is down (complete gov diktat). New Hampshire had it right before it was overrun with Progs: Live free or die.

One cannot come to a belief in Islam rationally. One can only come to it through a process of big-lie conditioning that leads to ratonalization. In Hare Krishna, practitioners used to go through airports chanting and making constant noise. Their brains had no opportunity ever to reflect, rationally. In Islamic cultures, inmates have no opportunity ever to reflect rationally. The din of chants and hate is all around, along with the ever present warnings that deviations lead to honor killings, stonings, acid attacks, burnings, beheadings, mutilations, etc. When minds are made prisioners, there is no opportunity for rationality.

A belief is something one comes to rationally, while exercising a free mind. A muslim is not a mindful believer. He is a mindless missile, aimed at the heart of Western Civilization. As is our phony prez, who came to his beliefs by rationalizing a steady drumbeat of hatred that, with help from drugs, cleaned everything else out of his mind. I doubt the best psychoanalyst in the world could cure Obama of his deeply grooved hatreds. Yet, he is cool in his calculations concerning jihadis.

Obama's free college proposal is a double down on demogoguery. Says the tyrant, "So let it be written, so let it be done." Says the flatterers of the tyrant, "Forward!"

How To Make A Tyranny And Call It Progress: Events often catch societies unaware, inducing them to elect tyrants who retain power by fundamentally altering systems of government. Such tyrants self select to be disposed to find people to be expendable to their lusts for power. Popular or short sighted programs (like Lysenko's) often lead to decimations of segments of society that are "ungrateful" to Dear Leaders. These programs tend to be of the "free lunch" variety, such as free education, free health care, free safety net, etc. When the bill comes and cannot be paid, goats are found, either to divert blame from the regime or to advance a new demagogue. People and institutions put fingers to the wind, to rationalize, flatter and exhort on behalf of trending stars and usurpers. This is how obvious incompetents, such as Pelosi and Boehner, seize and retain power.

Competition among tyrants often leads them to promise unsustainable, centrally ruled programs. Like gamblers, tyrants cannot quit while winning. If a program wins votes and supporters and does not sink the republic, they double down for a new program. If Obama succeeded in providing for free education, he would eventually call for paying people to go to college. Indeed, he would call for paying "his people" to breathe. Eventually, centrally controlled gov so regulates all private industry as in effect to replace it. After Government Motors comes Government Parenting by he who knows the "scientific best" in all things.

Train minds of children, change the demographic, fundamentally change the system, obtain total control over the making of fiat money, fiat (Candy Crowley) debates, fiat law and fatwa religion. Then ridicule and threaten opponents, recruit shills skilled in political media and mind bending, and play competitive games of nation building against opposng regimes. When citizens resist, hang scapegoats out to dry. "The cold never bothered me anyway."

I suspect conservatives tend to get impatient with progressives who put the Golden Rule in front of the Great Commandment. Empathy reduces to spoiled rot unless it tempers the idea of love thy neighbor (perspectivistic consciousness) with the idea of serve God (reconciling consciousness).

When Progs speak of empathy, too often it seems they are asking society to prostrate itself to serve and entitle their pet pleasures. To be decently meaningful, empathy has to mean more than "let each person pleasure himself as he wilt." An adult understanding of empathy should ask each person to consider how he should take responsibility to discipline and govern his liberty, so as to enhance the unfolding of decent society for all of us.

Empathy should mean more than, "Mommy, please understand, empower and entitle me." World peace and love is not a viable formulation or prescription in a world populated with whiny narcissists and intolerant totalitarian sociopathic collectivists. Thought needs to be given to what is needed to establish and preserve human freedom and dignity. That entails respect for decent faith, loyalty to family, and fidelity to a checked, balanced, and de-centralized republic.

It does not entail replacement of the family with the diktat of an intrusive state that promises pleasure and security in exchange for surrender of liberty. Big central collectivist gov as a way to force empathy and charity is the Orwellian opposite of empathy and charity.

The empathy of progs is always funded on opm, and it always falls eventually on the producing middle class. This will continue until the producing middle class is obliterated. Then it will be interesting to see where "progress" takes us. Prog empathy is as Orwellian as Liberal liberty. Where is the "empathy" in turning little boys into little girls, or ghetto males into irresponsible fathers, or students into perpetual burdens on society?

It is not that hard to decode Barry, unless you are a fellow traveler or an idiot who believes "facts" as stated by Obama the Lying Deceiver must be taken at face value, else you are a racist conspiracist. When you're dealing with an enemy, you look for his tells, keys, and functions. You don't act like a bot and assume he is the source of truth and meaning. Obama is walking proof of the urgent and fighting need for better checks and balances against the agglomeration of central rule by cronies and flatterers over Americans. His supporters daily make a calculation: Given the conditioned stupidity of the typical citizen, how much more can the regime weaken the nation without waking the people as a whole to the fact that they are being had? This is the reverse of Alan Turing --- it is the dumb and evil anti-hero to a hero.

Gov imagines that economies of scale would offset costs of central bureaucracy. However, besides being inefficient, central bureaucratic consolidation exposes us to increased risks of sabotage. All "savings" are lost to waste, fraud and abuse. It's rather like the mafia demanding ownership and tribute and then "saving" us money by leasing back. Gov by cronies is the acme of rent seeking.

A person who wants to be a responsible citizen can get a GED. We are already paying derelicts to breathe. Soon, imstead of chargimg people to attend colleges, we will have taxpayers payimg them to attend college. We don't need to pay to educate them more about how to be burdens on society. Next, instead of free community college, the regime will be trolling to pay a public salary to people who specialize in the public dole. Then to people to seek, find, and grease the way for illegals and ingrates. Because whitey owes it to them, is what they always say.

Gigo is appropriate for simple computers, but perhaps less so for complex computers. People are complex computers, not simple machines. People can crack deceptions. Competitors tend not to exchange exact facts. They have to play the imitation game and the deception game. Codes are not given; they are cracked. And often rewritten as soon as they are cracked.

I wonder what percentage of Progs assume diversity is strength, Muslims want freedom, whites are racists, blacks are victims, Christians rely on superstition instead of science, cultures are equal, health and education and welfare are entitlements, border jumpers want the American Dream, and Americans are evil?

Well, hints and profiles that evidence worldviews tend to be obvious upon observing what people read and discuss and what they evade by deployng shallow excuses. It's not like the bad guys will say, "Hey, you know what? I intend to use/rob/hurt you." Moreover, practiced human deceivers tend to be more proficient than Enigma at altering their keys, tells, and decoding functions. A challenge for students is not just to ascertain whether their instructor or reporter is a bot, but how honestly their instructor or interviewee is dealing with them. Evading simple questions tends to be a tell.

Attorneys frequently ask hypothetical questions. The only catch is that the question be relevant and that the witness be shown to have the expertise to provide an informative opinion. Reality consists of potentialities and manifestations. To make informed choices, one needs to weigh potentialities as one chooses how to effect manifestations.

More of our leaders and citizenry need to consider important hypotheticals, such as: What is our back up plan if China were to threaten to knock out our satellites? How will our economy be affected if the middle class is rendered economically and politically impotent? What if a gov is without effective means to stop well placed cronies from using it to further ponzi schemes? What will be the effect on free thinking human beings as more and more pockets of minority and Islamic no-go zones are allowed to spread? What will be the social effect of encouraging ever more parents to raise their boys as if they were girls? How do minds affect culture and culture affect minds? How are debates warped as neo-cons or Progs are placed as moderators?

In discouraging vision concerning such issues, a people are lost.

Rino-dinos fail to enforce our borders and let Muslims in. If we profiled Muslims, we would not need the TSA. We would not have turned so much of our GDP into boondoggles. I would be driving less and flying more. My carbon footprint would be smaller, given greater efficiency. So, since our gov is now in the hands of rino-dino-progs, why should they be entrusted with more power? The way to teach a child the stove is hot is to warn him and let him learn personal responsibility. Unless Progs are allowed to reap the folly they sow, they will never stop sowing it.

Do not fail to challenge rino-dino liars and stupids who call Islam a religion of peace or tolerance. Understand how culture and steady drumbeats of anti-human propaganda can groove, warp and deeply wound minds. Do not waste resources attempting to build free thinking nations out of deeply warped cultures. Do not call Mohammad a prophet. Do not equate the Koran to the New Testament. Do not absolve Islam because some among its adherents are innocent or decent. Do not free a dog infected with worsening rabies because at one time he was a puppy. Do not expect a sudden cure to a brain wounding, deeply infested, cultural meme. Do not tolerate that which means to fundamentally change you into a servant of progressive fascists. Do not be surprised when parasitical, sociopathic cronies prey on weak minded collectivists, nor when minds warped in collectivism offer themselves to be preyed upon. Expect Collectivists and Islamists, when they reach a certain percentage of the population, to swarm like intolerant locusts.

Free thinking people of republics ought not be inviting, entertaining, marrying, trading with, sharing technology with, or enriching people whose minds are deeply warped against free thinking. A mix of two memes, one indiscriminately tolerant and the other rabidly intolerant, will result in the destruction of the tolerant meme. A meme that would facilitate lasting free thinking cannot survive without learning to recognize and neuter that which is intolerant of it. A freedom loving polar bear cannot survive by respecting those among it who preach the "virtue" of blind diversity and tolerance of collectivist minded polar bear hunters.

Nazi philosophy may be more humane than the philosophy expressed in the Koran. Hitler may have done better had he styled himself the messenger of Odin. Also, if he had had sense not to open up so many fronts at once, so as to have won. Yes, that would not have been a good thing for decent people, but it would have resulted in more histories favorable to him and Mohammad.

Progs tend to claim not to be religiously superstitious, yet they give more of a pass to followers of the same evil, provided they do their evil under a religious banner. I wonder why they consider Nazis to be rightists and Commies to be leftists? They're both inhumane authoritarian collectivists. So why is one right and the other left? Seems to me they are both down, as in totalitarian down. (BTW, someone needs to tell J.K. Rowling to get a clue. OTOH, she does know her driveling audience.)

The human brain is not a blank slate, but it is neuroplastic. Totalitarian regimes know full well how to turn almost entire cultures into ignorant, bloodthirsty low lifes. Any competent and thoughtful reading of the Koran should readily uncover its true nature.
