Comment on "science" today.

Of today’s science (institutional); its characteristics and its state:

Here is a brief description of the status of institutional science today which is totally dependent upon consensus for its existence and survival. The creation of dogma is its a priori function to develop pillars of improvable Newtonian approximations and further represents the most dangerous enemy to mankind and civilization today. Scientific theory must be proven through demonstration and prediction and held accountable rather than the tenure of additive theory upon theory through peer review and hierarchal consensus. It is to be considered mechanical 'technology' development or Institutional science but never "science". Notwithstanding there lies deep within the forces of mankind in terms of integrity and courage, a re-emergent true science; a quiet and real science carried on the shoulders of the courageous giants of our times.

Of today's science (institutional); its characteristics and its state:

Science today is mechanistic, that is technology or of the machine and not of science; is purely quantitative, incapable of qualitative enquiry or analysis. This "science" is of mentality; dependent upon and protected by consensus, a priori.

"The modern age - The Age of the World Picture" as Heidegger terms it - represents not so much the ascendancy of science as that of technology and the machine." "Step-by-step" - granulations of ideas (approximations - ideations) taken from within encapsulated specializations where deductive reasoning meets criteria specified by that specialization without reference to other areas of specialization, and fixed dogmatically, selectively and preferentially by ruling paradigms (Kuhn), interests and agenda. An ad hoc static effect which negates the essence and principles of science and creates false foundations for scientific extension. That is, nescience structured in dogma and protected by true believing warrior priests in terms of peer-to-peer review, credentialization, tenure and active public relational debunking.

This institutional scientific approach of today therefore forces all future emergent science to be based or constrained or limited only in those preferred milestones of dogma and rigorously policed to this effect. Here is the error of our path - uncertainty & dogma (assumption), a priori. And, due to the peer-to-peer review process, only new discoveries made within the priestly and / or bureaucratic systems of approved institutionally qualification is permitted to be of further consideration. That is, context and methodology drawn down from the professorial elite, built upon by consensually accepted theory and proof by peer review only, with that consensus emanating only from within the inner core of the elite element of that specialist encapsulated temple; a self-serving feedback looping hierarchy.

Everything else is discarded until later 'discovered' through established protocol, opportunity (agenda) and ritual.

Mental usage of the dialectic in language today is duplicitous and adverse thereby allowing the creation of opposing ideas or uncertainty which creates sophistry due to the differences between intelligible responses to intellectual responses. Argument remains at superficial levels [reduced one level i.e. reductionism] of a quantitative nature and transmits only emotionally ill-formed (i.e. without value) preferences whereas arguments and research should find the core for the identification of the cause of the effect, the resistance, the function thereof and the original cause... which is normally found by the same process of the observed 'gesture'; that is the temporal signature. In the latter there is volume, value and significance besides being contextually oriented, all in a qualitative density of proportion and correspondence.

Obviously this approach of science today separates (and objectifies) and its usage enhances the borders of function and being, where no boundaries exist.

Static, reductionist, analytical, historical, obvious, known, definable, knowledge, necessary; intelligence needs a context or "thought needs support".

Mechanistic, fractured, ad hoc, ambiguous, approximate, representative, superficial, objective, layered, fragmented, priestly, hierarchal, bureaucratic, rite, imitation, rote, dogma, paradigmical.

And, by consensus, non-illuminative, sterile, fixed, irresponsible, idealistic, polarized to self engrandishment, ideological, lack of conviction, with power through fear, this science of destruction (refer to the Atomic bomb) remains constrained, secretive, demands obedience, revengeful, rationalistic, sophistic, duplicitous, ad hoc, subjective, limited, 'negative' a priori, contractive, and which starts with the part and develops towards the whole; is dialectic, consensual, with a reliance on words built on subjective and superficial objectivity without consideration for a comprehensive language - in grammar strategizes constructive rules of popular consent and thus being non synergistic nor relevant. That is to say, science today does not stimulate and therefore does not evoke comprehension. It lacks energization and thereby is not in accord with life itself. It demands protection.

Here can be verified a serious difference whereas modern static analytical science remains within the confines of complexity rather than proceeding onto simplicity by ridding itself with its fantasy of support mechanisms. There is no element of integrity and therefore due to the uncertainty of the dogma science, it carries the weight of its reductionist complexity, a priori. As a consequence synthesis is seriously disabled due to the preference for non-connected fragments which leads to the definition of a superficial ad hoc approach to physical enquiry. This a priori approach is symbiotic with the cerebral mechanism which a priori attunes itself to this discipline.

Science today relies on a system of references i.e. scales, e.g. time, speed of light, red shift, meter, absolute zero, etc. Its remains two dimensional (a picture, see above), with a priori non philosophical guidance, arrogant, with the 'Gods' (read: Universal Principles) replaced by men and 'cause and effect' replaced by determinism. The developed scientific state that everything is known [to science] when the facts suggests that little is known. Context from policy and agenda - abstracts that are uncoordinated, without philosophical depth of development and comprehension.

The analytical then reduces abstractions to a defined picture followed by a proliferation of disconnected facts - quantified 'objectifications' with relationship dependant upon linear equational logic. Or, a process of knowing a book by its cover or, superficiality - rote - imitation; that is, the process of establishing dogma; complexity of unknown origin.

On the other hand, the analogue first expands from the image inwardly into far reaching associations through evocation - digestive or processing through the extraction of the necessary elements. Both brain and stomachs are digestive processes. Simplicity is processed from complexity where that simplicity is richly qualitative as well as quantitative though volumetric density of knowing - analogy - the magnetic pinch effect - Birkeland Current (Biefield-Brown Effect) pinch effect. Everything is electrical that is, energetic, vital, impulsive. Drives are evocation from cause; that is, effect through resistance, with full possibility - man has probability wired in - Risk. The idea of science is not to invent the Universal and Parochial laws of physics (life), but to enquire as to their nature and the "facts" of physics are in abundance and need not be totally theorized ex nihilo.

Only such an approach is qualitative and allows an inner experience to be created as a complicit 'creation' with tacit (unique, experiential and innate) knowledge which has a value that can be subjected to inner qualification i.e. "measure". The objective of Man is 'individualism' 'becoming' 'experiential' 'dynamic' knowledge through the conscious identification of function or a continual state of the Verbe and to this end, science is the only "measure" that permits this 'becoming' or manifestation process.

That is, the ideologies or 'collectivism' are useful but are of a lower form of intelligence; an earlier milestone on the evolutionary scale. Ideologies have no place in intellect where accord with the Universal Principles (read: if preferred, the Gods') is innate.

That is to say consciousness is the concretization of qualitative experiential knowledge. Basically, we evolve only in terms of consciousness to live the functionality of resultant but emergent simplicity from dynamic complexity; vital and energized. A qualitative value where intellect drives intuition while intuition guides intellect and which is opposed to the current mentality of pure quantification.

Technology, which today's' "science" represents "Deus ex Machina" is a recursive arising from constraints which in most cases are ill-founded - being ill-considered - technology. Technology is a workaround; war is a technology as is terrorism a technology and so forth; a tool for profit and is not to be considered to be "science". Science is qualitative knowledge via complicit creation within the consciousness of man (or other intellectual life forms that have the capacity to self-organization); it is what men are to become in the universal evolutionary dynamic; time must never be considered as an absolute or anything more than relationships in terms of the Pythagorean geometrie of organizations surrounding structure.

That is, clearly, "Science" today is consensual and it needs protection as it cannot stand unchallenged by itself.

why do you highlight this at this time ? and...
comment: why so long, so many years, between
blog entries? what do you "see" now?

PeterJB said...

The global economic collapse is here and we are amongst it; the collapse heightens but, also will enlighten. It is time.
"Economics" must be found within "socio-economics" because it is the science of human behaviour and its nature to reach for civilization; this has now become vitally important. There are only two issues which are 1. the behaviours and men and 2. the nature of all there is.
Technology we do but this is derived out of science and is a recursive; all life phenomenon indulges in technology but not all life can indulge in science; only Man. While all there is, is life, that is to say, all emergent phenomena which have the capacity to self organize.
Sickness is life, disease is life, fungi is life, CDO are virus and hence life phenomena, etc., etc. Grasp this and you will see that time and space is a whiteboard for dynamic life to play and for we to learn.
We now must change all our thinking and thus all our structures and organization to be in accordance with Universal Principles; it is happening albeit slowly.
A change of consciousness is being imposed upon us which will soon be apparent. The next drop in World financial indexes, after this current moment, will mark the demographic horrors brought about by the hand of our insolence and arrogance and preference to wallow in ignorance.
Bad news follows but look for Horus's eye at FB Peter Leslie.
Good to here from you.

PeterJB said...

Very interesting but not surprising; thank you.

There are two aspects to Mind:
1. The superficial and,
2. Volume
There are two aspects to knowledge:
1. Simplicity and
2. Complexity

Pythagorean magic is when 5 fingers disappear and become 1 hand.

A lot of complexity is about to become a simplicity - and that moment is energetic and vital. This is a Universal Principle.

Time is not a constant!

PeterJB said...

My answer to your question then is:

I see an urgency to accelerate the growing trend so as to minimize the adverse effects in changing the gears of civilization from the old to the necessary, which is now occurring and could be described as destructive forces.

thank you for your thought/s.
rare clarity, comprehension and breadth.

489. The Tiger

TIGER, tiger, burning bright
In the forests of the night,
What immortal hand or eye
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?

In what distant deeps or skies 5
Burnt the fire of thine eyes?
On what wings dare he aspire?
What the hand dare seize the fire?

And what shoulder and what art
Could twist the sinews of thy heart? 10
And when thy heart began to beat,
What dread hand and what dread feet?

What the hammer? what the chain?
In what furnace was thy brain?
What the anvil? What dread grasp 15
Dare its deadly terrors clasp?

When the stars threw down their spears,
And water'd heaven with their tears,
Did He smile His work to see?
Did He who made the lamb make thee? 20

Tiger, tiger, burning bright
In the forests of the night,
What immortal hand or eye
Dare frame thy fearful symmetry?
ps.. stay strong. sentient.
the world, man, needs you.
now and ongoing.

How do you know but ev'ry Bird that cuts the airy way,
Is an immense world of delight, clos'd by your senses five?

Inventions and the scientific method of research have so transformed human life that the long inherited, timeless universe of symbols has collapsed. It is not only that there is no hiding place for the gods from the searching telescope and microscope but there is no such society as the gods once supported. Ideals of the social unit are not those of the hieratic pantomime, making visible on earth the forms of heaven, but of the secular state, in hard and unremitting competition for material supremacy and resources. And within the progressive societies themselves, every last vestige of the ancient human heritage of ritual, morality, and art is in full decay.

One does not know toward what one moves. One does not know by what one is propelled. The hero-deed to be wrought is not today what it was in the century of Galileo. Where there was darkness, now there is light; but also, where light was, there is now darkness. The modern hero-deed must be that of questing to bring light again to the lost Atlantis of the coordinated soul.

The modern hero, the modern individual who dares to heed the call and seek the mansion of that presence with whom it is our whole destiny to be atoned, cannot - indeed must not - wait for his community to cast off its slough of pride, fear, and rationalized avarice and sanctified misunderstanding. ‘Live', Nietzsche says, ‘as though the day was here.' It is not society that is to guide and save the hero, but precisely the reverse. And so every one of us shares the supreme ordeal - carries the cross of the redeemer - not in the bright moments of his tribe's great victories but in the silences of his personal despair.

Joseph Campbell, in The Hero with a Thousand Faces.

and thanks for your kind words...

Dear PJB,

I would like to get in touch. Excellent writing. Would like to use one of your essays 9this one actually, comment on science today, my views are similar and very well expressed by you) in my up-coming book, based on my blog:

you can reach me at vivekchaturvedi at yahoo dot com

Look forward to hearing back from you.

About Me

My photo
I am now considered too old to be of further threat but I have survived three institutional attempts to prematurely end my life during my career. The current Global Systemic Collapse (GSC), better described as a 'global leadership collapse' (GLC), is a socio-economic phase-transition brought about by the total failure of global "leadership", to find even the most basic of foresight and compassionate sensitivities to balance the imbalances and injustices that they have wrought on the World. Governments' are now attempting to create an exclusive risk-free corporate environment. This delusional ideology of pure insanity, cannot sustain. This sought "risk-free' corporate banking environment is to be achieved by transferring all risk and all financial losses to the tax-payers (“Main Street”) while maintaining a highly secretive cabal of global elites and ruling politician and bankers. The simple truth is that our "Economic Theory" is a fatally flawed, faith-based farce, and "leadership" do not have the necessary intelligence nor intellect to confront the issues du jour. There are now only Heretics and Fools, but, there is always a “choice”.
