It certainly is challenging to be swimming in the opposite direction of the etiquette and conventions that have defined social media norms.

Dependence on Independence

Thanks Harvey because your thoughts are on the same wave length that I projected them from within me. If the resulting wavelength ends up feeding on itself that simply mirrors the process of consumption, and consumption is a group instrument without which we do not have the material construction that includes the very computer I use to think through things here.

If the wavelengths emitted by us are independent rays of light, then assembling a collective vew of all lights is worth observing, more so than the other night when I stood in the freezing cold with a moon that was supposed to be a spectacular wolf-super-red eclipse something something moon - turns out that if I had created coloured transparency filters and placed them on my eyes, that would have done the same thing. We are terrible witnesses to our own illusions.

The great thing is that when we are not blinded by the mass light, the truly spectacular wavelengths connect to the organic lightning rod within us, which essentially is what we refer to as wisdom. Ultimately that does not serve to to separate us but connects - and making these connections is an AHA moment individual within all of us. We both are cognizant of our organic lightning rod of wisdom and thus we are on the same wavelength - that converts into a ray of light a.k.a. the analogy here is internal electric signals in our brain and the accompanying external magnetism we feed into ourselves through our body :

Happiness as a Paradox

Happiness as a Paradox

The only legitimate reason I have for discussing happiness or trust online is out of my own unhappiness or distrust.聽 As a society we are constantly engaging a paradox of happiness and trust because we are not facing our unhappiness or distrust,...

The paradox of happy is that it is like air, we only think of air when it is either polluted or we are suffocating. What connects this happy with air is ruach - the meaning of which is the breath of life. Just as King Canute was fabled at commanding the sea to retreat, unhappiness is a systemic ocean. If people learn to breath that is the point where we can rise above the ocean of unhappiness and in so doing realize how wet our thoughts about happiness made us.

The industrial revolution is an absolute fundamental cause to the way we identify with work and make us talk about work-life balance the way most people do. Barry Schwartz pursues this idea in his book Why We Work and also talks about how the idea of work has manifested itself in our society https://www.ted.com/talks/barry_schwartz_the_way_we_think_about_work_is_broken?language=en Now we have reached a time when robots can do what human bodies were used for, we are unable to adjust ourselves as a society from these life as a factory idea. Finding meaning in home is not a new idea. The way this changed our meaning and identification with work is quite major.

I am not making an argument here about this meaning for my purpose here is to think about my own life and that includes meaning of family from a communal and alloparenting standpoint because that is the system we currently facilitate in our own home. Emile Durkheim is interesting as a social psychologist but what he saw as a democratic and transformational work relationship are far from being realized or maybe even possible, because we only focus on the critical thinking portion of an argument and not on the creative thinking needed as to how we individually pursue our own life explorations and maybe even more important how we reflect meaning of this to our own day-to-day lives in the present moment.

We are too apt to want to tell the world our theories because the way books are created and marketed have given us this broadcasting mentality, but we don't spend enough time figuring out what shaped our attitudes to work and that includes the protestant reformation and its work ethic, as much as the larger backdrop of the industrial revolution.

I am struggling a bit with the industrial revolution as a fundamental cause. Maybe my bias is shining bright. If you would indulge it for a moment.

The late 1800's brought forward the birth of capitalism and the ideals of separation of church and state. It also brought forward the reformation presided over by Martin Luther and many others.

Two very distinct things happened. We separated humans into two groups within themselves. Church and state.

The state took off within the industrial revolution. Humans at first did not separate from the church but saw all things of man in a metaphysical way.. Until the 60's and to a greater extent the 90's. (I remember the sixties front page of Time magazine Is God Dead.)

The nineties is when we really began to separate the metaphysical from the material. I can be happy with enough stuff and VISA is here to help.

The material world is now the gauge of humanity. I am guilty because i have to much or i am oppressed because i don't have enough. It's not the declaration but what is being used to gauge the concept.

Thanks for indulging my bias here. It's not disagreement its merely a different look at the same pothole.

Jonathan Haidt and Jordan Peterson are both discussing this missing metaphysical piece. They each put forward a compelling argument.
