Network Propositions
3100 - 3199


3100
The synthesis of the opposites, good and evil, is universal guilt and universal responsibility.


3101
The attainers, in creating their new universes, must decide whether to permit the good-evil dichotomy in their designs: Some will and some won't.


3102
Like creation and responsibility, punishment is indivisible. Punishment is not meted to others, nor is it shared ... it is wholly borne by each and every one of us. The judge gravely delivers judgement to himself.


3103
To say that a particular person admits no realisation of personal responsibility for evil, is to say that such realisation is delayed or postponed; at some future time, full realisation will surely impact on that person.


3104
Implicit in every act of creation is the full responsibility of the creator for all consequences of the creation.


3105
Wherein lies our individual sovereignty if we are responsible for all acts of all persons? Each of us is a presence of the Absolute: Our sovereignty derives from the omnipotence of the presence in us. It is because of this presence that we are responsible for everything.


3106
Where then lies our individuality? It lies in our uniqueness: Each one of us is truly unique ... and the Absolute life of each one is a uniquely different life.


3107
Without this uniqueness, each universe would be a completely random creation. The odds against the human species being created randomly are astronomical. The life of this universe of ours has not evolved randomly: This universe is not a random creation. Universes are not random creations ... they are unique creations, which derive their uniqueness from their creator-monads. Our individual uniqueness is an indispensable quality of the Absolute.


3108
As one cannot create without destroying, destruction is also indivisible. We are each wholly responsible for all destruction.


3109
There is no argument in this network against punishment. Each monad receives the punishment it needs, and each judge delivers the judgement he needs to give, and each warder metes out the punishment which he needs to mete out. All actions are perfect actions of the Absolute.


3110
Also, there is no argument here against change or in favour of the status quo. Indeed, personal and societal perceptions are changing rapidly.


3111
A person who makes excuses is a person who doesn't accept responsibility.


3112
The making of excuses indicates lack of courage and self-realisation and maybe a simple type of cunning is there.


3113
We know, instinctively, that we each have full responsibility, and our perceived inability to meet this responsibility may give rise to feelings of futility, frustration, victimisation and unfairness.


3114
Our instinctive awareness, of our absoluteness and sovereignty, pushes and pulls us towards greater self-realisation. The process is often painful and agonising.


3115
Kicking against the pricks' is an important aspect of the learning process. To desist from such behaviour may be considered wise and pragmatic ... but very little is to be learned by drifting with the tide.


3116
Monads of considerable self-realisation, often purposely create obstacles for themselves, for they know that the overcoming of difficulties is accompanied by an insurge of strength and well-being ... that is, by significant qualitative personal gains.


3117
It is noteworthy that this network is largely free of admonitions and advice. The general stance of the network is that existence is a perfect dynamic system. The originator kicks at pricks along with most, but he realises that each person kicks differently at different pricks. To advise people on how and what to kick would savour of arrogance and stupidity. Of course, if people ask for advice, one needs to respond courteously and respectfully.


3118
As one becomes more self-realised, one's 'prick-kicking' takes on a creative connotation. To genuinely, intelligently and sincerely disagree with the working-design of this universe is indicative of the embryonic shaping of the individual's own universe in-the-making.


3119
Each monad is a child of the Absolute, and destined to create its own universe. When, as mature offspring, we disagree with the universal status quo, we are consciously or unconsciously shaping another universe on the Absolute's behalf. Each one of us is a seed of the Absolute's diaspora: Each participates in the Absolute's generative process.


3120
We are transfinite beings which are being raised in a time-space nursery, where we:


3121
All observation and creation is one transfinitely integrated event, with detailed infeed from time-space. Existence may be likened to a transfinite master-computer which receives its data-inputs from transfinite sensor-creators operating in time-space.


3122
2020 is the year of the diaspora ... when this universe seeds into countless new universes, and the old universe dies.


3123
Self-realised monads become hosts of new universes. Monads, which have not yet attained, join attainer-hosts. Now is the time of hosting, when each non-attainer freely selects the host which it chooses to join.


3124
To paraphrase a proposition, is to re-state, and to re-state is to create a new and different proposition. Explication is only possible by creating new and different propositions.


3125
The contribution of over 2,400 new propositions of my own has been and is the major factor in the success of my predictions.


3126
Of my new propositions, the central role of the creative intelligence, and the implications of its nature and role, are (subsidiary of course to the Absolute) key to the whole project and the system and the predictions depend upon them.


3127
If the creative intelligence propositions are valid, the network is valid and the predictions based upon the network are valid.


3128
It is therefore pointless for anyone to judge the work, or to take up the work, unless they first examine and accept the creative intelligence propositions.


3129
The concepts of the Absolute, creative intelligence and monads, constitute the essence and persona of the network and predictions. If this basis is not acceptable, then the conclusions may be unacceptable.


3130
All processes of organic evolution are negentropic and they become progressively more negentropic until they culminate in the most complex organisms of all, namely human beings. At this culminating point, creative intelligence is achieved ... the product of all the negentropic tensing of the evolutionary process.


3131
Creative intelligence is attained at the point where the metamorphosis takes place. Creative intelligence causes all energy/quality to be released from mass, and converts it to transfinite forms.


3132
The greater the negentropy, the greater the entropic potential. Creative intelligence is at the top of the evolutionary negentropic chain and it has the greatest entropic potential: It has dual negentropic/entropic, constructive/destructive potential.


3133
Negentropic organic life has always aimed for (or been destined for) a metamorphosis, from finite expression to transfinite expression. The process of evolution has been a process of progressive and increasing tensing, which culminates in the birthing of creative intelligence. Creative intelligence becomes the agency and means by which tension is released from finity into transfinity: The negentropic enforming powers 'spark' or 'leap' the finite-transfinite 'gap' ... and the metamorphosis is accomplished.


3134
If he/she chooses, a pragmatist may view the network and predictions simply as a tool or mechanism which works, and may disregard the contents as being possibly right and possibly wrong. A pragmatist may say that the predictions are provable but that the contents are unprovable.


3135
The constituent propositions of the network cannot be provable in finite terms but only in transfinite terms. Propositions are essentially qualitative and transfinite ... and they can only be proved at the qualitative, transfinite level. How does one do that? ... one does it by qualitative means. Creative intelligence is the qualitative means by which we may know and judge the truth.


3136
One needs to intellectually explore the meaning and implications of the propositions, individually and collectively ... and then to make an intellectual judgement of their validity, value and utility. That judgement will be a qualitative and transfinite one.


3137
We may be inclined to assume that we live in a finite universe ... but finity is a relatively minor aspect of our universe.


3138
The creative intelligence is qualitative and non-finite: Encompassing finite and non-finite, it is better described as transfinite: It moves freely in all categories and dimensions of existence. We humans are essentially beings of intelligence: We are essentially qualitative and transfinite beings.


3139
We may be inclined to assume that our thoughts in timespace expression are finite ... but such is not the case. Our thoughts are transfinite and they operate transfinitely and they create the past and the future, as well as the present. What we observe, is like a time-space film but we, the creators/observers, are not of time-space: We 'look-in' on what we are creating.


3140
We may ask how we are going to adjust to the metamorphosis (from finity to transfinity) ... but we already live as transfinite beings: That is what we are now. What happens, at the metamorphosis, is that the physical-finite aspect is discarded or sloughed off.


3141
Prediction science, as I perceive it, is not in the least judgemental: It is concerned not with what should happen but with what will happen. As all outcomes are perfect outcomes of the perfect Absolute, it may be well argued that what happens always coincides with what should happen.


3142
If we accept that what will happen is what should happen and if we are able to predict what will happen, then we may with good conscience plan and organise our future in accordance with what will happen.


3143
From pragmatic considerations, apart from judgemental considerations, it may be thought advisable to avoid decis0 ions and acts which run counter to high-probability predictions of the future.


3144
Action, in accordance with high-probability predictions, will:(A) Greatly reduce 'blind alley' choices and actions ... and the losses of capital-resources, income and time resulting from them. (B) Improve efficiency ... that is, provide a better ratio of 'energy-out' relative to 'energy-in'.


3145
Action in accordance with predictions will not change the general shape of our destiny but it may make our lives more bearable ... increasing our incomes, preserving our savings, and decreasing our discomfort.


3146
Action in accordance with predictions will enable us to prepare ourselves and stance ourselves for what the future will bring.


3147
Those who adapt the 'accordance with predictions' approach will fare better than those who don't.


3148
It goes without saying that many people will not accept the 'accordance with predictions' approach, for various attitudinal, religious and other reasons.


3149
Any attempt to apply the 'accordance with predictions' approach at a governmental level would be tantamount to introducing a type of order into an essentially chaotic situation: It simply would not work.


3150
When comparing one network proposition with another, there may be some perceived inconsistencies. But, usually, it is not possible to achieve truth by one proposition alone. Other viewpoints need to be advanced and considered. Truth is usually better encompassed by a collection of propositions rather than by one. We should be careful in the culling-out of propositions, for there is a real danger of 'throwing out the baby with the bath-water'. Unless a specific proposition is obviously inconsistent with the network as a whole, it should be allowed to remain in place.


3151
This network is a book (or may be regarded as such), written not according to any preconceived theme or plan or representing one viewpoint, but a book which has grown, in its own light and right, from many sources of knowledge.


3152
As one reads and meditates upon the propositional network, one's outlook changes from a finite to a transfinite viewpoint: The network is a transmutation device.


3153
The network has established the overall trends and the 'what, why, how, when, where' of existence: In other words, it has established the background against which the future will unfold.


3154
Each person is its own universe ... a universe without end. Each person of now is an embryo of its universe to be. Each universe to be grows from the seeds of now. Evil now may grow to greater evil: Good now may grow to greater good. All fruits are in and of a person's own thoughts and actions: Each person lives out its own consequences.


3155
There will be many clashings and testings of friendships, to separate the faineant from the strong and genuine. The hosting process will be a 'search, clash ... search, clash ... search, clash ... search, find' process: And only strong-bond valencies will suffice.


3156
Finity is the realm where order is extraneous to the self: Transfinity is the realm where order is intrinsic to the self. The attainer-monad lives according to its own law and its own order.


3157
Finity is the realm where authority is extraneous to the self: Transfinity is the realm where authority is intrinsic to the self. The attainer-monad has its own authority.


3158
Finity is the realm where power is extraneous to the self: Transfinity is the realm where power is intrinsic to the self. The attainer-monad has its own power.


3159
The essential difference between finity and transfinity is that of self-realisation. When a monad is self-realised, it no longer has any limitations: It knows itself to be a transfinite being.


3160
The state of finity does not exist independently of us: It exists for as long as we need it, and no longer.


3161
A monad's creative intelligence is its means of self-realisation: A monad of creative intelligence is a self-realised monad.


3162
By creative intelligence, extraneous qualities are converted to intrinsic qualities. By creative intelligence, extraneous order, authority and power become intrinsic order, authority and power.


3163
Every monad which, by its creative intelligence, has transmuted its awareness from finite to transfinite, has transmuted its order, authority and power with it. By this transmutation of awareness, finity is abated entropically.


3164
As the creative intelligence of our race increases exponentially, so entropy increases exponentially. As individual monads gain in awareness, they withdraw order from their finite environment and absorb it personally and transfinitely. Creative intelligence and entropy are functionally integrated: To speak of one is to speak of the other.


3165
Why is there less and less order, physically and socially? The reason is that we ourselves are withdrawing and absorbing the order. That cohesion, which was formerly vested by us in our environment, is now vested in us personally. To use a simple analogy, we have withdrawn our money from the bank and we are keeping the cash.


3166
There is nothing to agree about. Each event is seen differently by each person ... and there is no reality separate and independent of observers. When people say they agree on a proposition, they have each interpreted that proposition in their own unique way ... that is, in a different way. They might say that they agree and they might sincerely believe that they agree, but there is no identically shared view on which they can agree.


3167
For survival and social purposes, we learn to behave in certain ways, in response to certain perceived signals, but no two individuals can have completely identical experiences at any time.


3168
Each predictor, using network methodology, will differ from other predictors in innumerable ways, including:


3169
Feel' is a very important aspect of prediction ... probably the most important aspect. Having absorbed all the propositions and all of the available current data, there remains a large indefinable area of 'feel'. If a prediction doesn't 'feel' right, the predictor must change it. There is both a sense of rightness and a fey aspect to this 'feel'. The predictor develops a 'feel' for the shape of the future ... for its geometry and its dynamics ... for its directions, conflicts, flows and resolutions. And, when everything comes together in a 'deja vu' insight, the predictor states his predictions.


3170
Why is it that so many of us agree on certain 'facts'? The reason is that we share genetic encoding ... and we share genetic decoding. But this does not necessarily mean that signals are extraneous to us. Maybe we are signalling to ourselves.


3171
We are genetically programmed to encode and decode information in the same general way ... even new discoveries.


3172
When we discover something, like a new life-species, we are inclined to say - 'look, we have found something 'out there' which is new and so there must be things 'out there' which are separate from us'. But such a conclusion is a 'non sequitur': We are 'one being of the void', and we are all that there is. We are simply discovering ourselves: We are not discovering something which is separate from us.


3173
Just because something seems harder or more intangible or, in another way, different from our bodies, it does not follow that this something is extraneous to us. We and our environment are one creation: Our bodies and the environment of our bodies are one creation.


3174
Creation is one and indivisible.


3175
Each part is as needful to the whole as any other part.


3176
We can create whatever we want: We are all that is.


3177
There is nothing other than the 'being of the void': We are all that is: We are the Absolute.


3178
We are a universal living being, which is integrally one with its environment.


3179
Our environment changes as we change. As we metamorphose from physical to mental, our physical environment atrophies, withers and dies.


3180
In order for our mind-mandates to be effective, we must know very clearly what we want.


3181
The future casts its shadow before it, and the closer one comes to the future, the more one moves into its shadow.


3182
The closer the future, the more certainly one can sense and apprehend it.


3183
The creative intelligence is the greatest force in the universe: The more creative intelligence we apply, in gaining any objective, the less of other forces is required (such as money, energy, military forces, etc.).


3184
We constantly convert the confusion of chaos to the clarity of certainty. This is the nature of our being and of our living ... that we create our realities according to our needs. All is malleable and moulded to our needs: We make our certainties of ourselves and for ourselves: We are a factory of facts ... and there are no facts but those which we make.


3185
The new universes are not elsewhere: They are amongst us, and we are central to them.


3186
As we give our interest and will to the new universes, the old universe atrophies and dies.


3187
Although not physical and not of time-space, the new universes are just as real.


3188
It is what we want and what we believe in which constitutes our realities.


3189
Cohesion is an absolute quality, which is never less than complete. It follows that a decrease of cohesion of this physical universe is offset by an increase of cohesion in some other place or dimension.


3190
Cohesion moves to the locus and focus of our interest and will.


3191
The more our mind is with our ancestors and departed friends, the more we are aware of the life after death ... and the easier it is for us to adapt when our body dies.


3192
How do we get to where we are going? What are the bridges between the old universe and the new? The answer is ... love, faith and creative intelligence.


3193
Physical laws operate as autonomic functions, in the phases prior to full self-awareness. When full self-awareness is attained, the physical laws no longer operate: The Absolute takes over from the autonomic and exercises direct control.


3194
Whenever we think, by that very act, we build our own universe ... for thoughts are the elements of our new being. Let us not perceive of them as 'only thoughts', for thoughts combined with will are the most powerful of all forces.


3195
As a cell to a body, so is a thought to a new universe ... and it is will which holds a universe together.


3196
Do not think that you are of no account. You count! There is nothing apart from us: We are all there is. Each of us is absolute, and we count absolutely. We are as important or unimportant as we think we are. Be careful what you think, for thoughts are very powerful.


3197
A personality is qualitative ... and the cohesive aspect, which integrates traits and aptitudes, is qualitative. As all qualities are transfinite, the qualitative personality is transfinite, and body-death does not alter or disrupt it.


3198
As cohesion moves from material things, it moves into personalities. Human personalities gather up and absorb the cohesion of their environment.


3199
As individual personalities become more cohered and more self-aware of their uniqueness, the more they clash and conflict. As they compete for 'living space', they move from finite to transfinite expression.
