The meta-mind’s abstractions and additive nature arrive into a felt sense of aesthetic consciousness, giving rise to unifying activity and actualization. A shared edge appears which uses arithmetical values expressed by a word, symbol, or figure for counting or calculating. Sacred numbers dance with matrikas (sacred letters) as the principle concern of the mental/aesthetic faculties of the intuition. The numbers arise out of nothingness and appear to us as bright, knowable forms in a night of negativity. Some numeric relationships are given to assessment but others are only revealed by a sort of meta-grammar which connects them symbolically.
Collective negativity is revealed to us as a worldview empty of essentialism, one oriented towards a timeless presence through its language and culture. Our synchronized minds pry into nothing together with the aid of pointers, so we realize that we are not just looking at a concept, but entering into a shared experience of nothing. Nothing appears to us as something beyond the nature of concepts. Knowledge of nothingness thus takes us into non-conceptual knowing that grounds All-That-Is. We can playfully say that nothing is a nuzzling or nuptual with a nutty taste. It is also one containing ash.
The intuitive networked-mind of an evolved culture which uses conversation and gestures to create a worldview that sees things the way they are to consciousness itself, perceived not merely through sensual inferences but through ‘inner knowing’. Does an evolved culture like this exist currently? If so, where? Imagine yourself there. If not, imagine yourself as possessing a yang type of orientation so you are active rather than passive. What steps concretely could you do to co-create one such culture? How is the worldview you imagine like a network, a group or system of interconnected and intersecting people or things?
The objective structures of the world in our time are defined by technologies often possessing a machine intelligence capable of processing more information more quickly than the human brain. Computerized systems of surveillance and control create nooks of order and safety and ease-of-life even as they impinge upon our privacy and simplicity. Moreover, as the human brain interacts with artificial systems through mobile phones, games, and other technologies it changes in measurable and complex ways that have not yet been fully examined. Our inner worlds of action and knowing receive awe-inspiring informational input from our late industrial, data-driven societies.
The human body becomes nimbler through stretching and shaking, good nutrition and activity. The result is enhanced flexibility and dexterity; in an athlete, the the ballet dancer’s splits or a boxer’s footwork. Objective social systems also may become nimbler through the application of methodologies which emphasize empirical feedback, self-management, and continuous quality improvements within short iterations. Some project management methodologies include a role for the Product Owner, who is like the Yang, the Team, which is like the Yin, and the Scrum Master, which is Yung. Leadership in a Yung style facilitates change by empowering self-organization and rapid adaptations.
A social project requires management systems such as the Agile system which gives an important role for a Product Owner, the role of a person as opposed to a committee. This person’s responsibility is for handling the so-called Product Backlog. Responsibilities are in seven major areas including prioritizing the items to-do items, optimizing the value of development teams, and performing triage in a manner that is transparent to multiple teams and levels of management. Thus, this person is directly responsible for nipping the backlog, bite by bite, nibble by nibble. The Yang-style leadership reduces work in manageable amounts.
Black’s Law Dictionary defines a Nation as “A people, or aggregation of men [and women], existing in the form of an organized jural society, usually inhabiting a distinct portion of the earth, speaking the same language, using the same customs, possessing historic continuity ….” In the United Kingdom (UK), the role of Prime Minister is given seven primary functions ranging from political leadership to managing the executive branch to representing the country in international affairs. The nation itself is the container for the activities of governance, comprised of observable systems with nexus-agency, including laws which impact all the social systems.
