Network Propositions
3700 - 3799


3700
The more thinking we do and the more we concentrate our will upon it, the more powerful and effective our brain-transformer becomes ... and the greater our awareness of transfinity becomes.


3701
Most thinking is concerned with regurgitation, repetition and explication: Very little of it is original. But, in so far as each observer perceives and thinks differently, and in so far as that which is perceived and thought about changes momentarily, every perception and every thought is original. Perception and thought, which is highly charged with will, is highly original ... that is, it is highly creative. Will and creativity are closely allied qualities.


3702
Creative intelligence is an exercise of perception, thought and will. The scarcity of creative intelligence indicates a lack of the requisite mix of these qualities.


3703
All is Absolute: All is complete ... but the Absolute is unlimited and may extend itself. The completeness of the Absolute derives from its having no exclusions ... but the Absolute cannot be limited, and may expand or change in any way. The Absolute's completeness is a dynamic completeness.


3704
Creative intelligence is the quality by which the Absolute extends itself, and it does this via the agency of its countless, monadic, individual, unique personalities.


3705
Were it not for the uniqueness of individual monads, all would be tautological.


3706
Individual, monadic viewpoints are the only inviolable paradigms. It is a natural law that no two monads are identical and that no two individual, monadic viewpoints are identical.


3707
We think in order to survive: We think because we are genetically designed to think: We think because we know intuitively that by thinking we can gain access to the infinite Absolute ... that is, to the totality of existence and fount of all quality and power.


3708
Will and thought, together, are qualitatively self-generative. A monad, by will and thought, is able to gain full self-realisation as an Absolute being.


3709
It is by the quality of our will and thought that we are able to release the quality of mass. Quality attracts quality and releases quality and absorbs quality and creates quality: All is quality.


3710
Monads are unique, qualitative beings and they, alone of quality, are sovereign beings. Only by monads can quality be created. Monads are centres of Absolute awareness and centres of Absolute will.


3711
When two people (monads) sense each other's 'vibes', they participate in the creation of each other: Also, when two people make direct eye contact with each other, they participate in the creation of each other.


3712
Each person (monad) is pervaded and surrounded by a vibratory aura. Each aura is unique to the individual and is the individual's complete signature, so to speak. Those, who are sensitive to auras and can 'read' them, are able to gain a great deal of information about their owners. Any reference, in this network to 'vibes' is a reference to vibratory auras.


3713
It is not possible to over-emphasise the importance of monads. The most important aspect, of our race and our future, is our monadic nature and development.


3714
The more self-realised a monad becomes, the more it reveals the uniqueness of its personality: It becomes more and more distinct from the rest of the flock, so to speak.


3715
An attainer has no fear: Has nothing to be afraid of. An attainer has no defences: Has nothing to defend against. An attainer has absolute faith and is completely open: An attainer is like a small child. But, as the attainer is one with the Absolute, it is as omnipotent and inviolable as the Absolute itself.


3716
All parts and qualities are subsets of the whole (the Absolute) and, thus, all percepts, concepts and descriptions are tautological as to the whole. It is only by the device of monads that universal tautology is avoided. Each monad is unique and its percepts, concepts and descriptions are unique: Its viewpoint is unique and its language and its meanings are unique. Each monad is a race, language and religion unto itself, and it has no interpreters ... that is to say, no monad can interpret another monad perfectly.


3717
As no monad can interpret another monad perfectly, it follows that no monad can ever be fully understood.


3718
The uniqueness of each monad makes it essentially a loner. Most monads have friends, allies and followers but, due to its uniqueness, each monad has a core of loneliness a loneliness shared only with the Absolute itself.


3719
Paradoxically, utter loneliness brings one closer to all. The Absolute, itself, is absolutely lonely and when an attainer shares the Absolute's loneliness, a wonderful joining occurs, and the rewards to the attainer are infinite. When Christ, on the cross, felt that he had been deserted, he had joined the Father in His utter loneliness. Christ had not been forsaken: He had become completely one with the Father (the Absolute).


3720
Awe is closely related to utter loneliness. When one feels awe, one 'tastes', as it were, the awefulness of the Absolute condition ... which is everything but it is everything alone: Absolute loneliness is aweful.


3721
An attainer learns to be alone in the void and learns to live there ... and provides its own light and warmth and comfort, in a unique universe of its own making. And, it invites other monads to join its host and to live in its universe, until they also leave to create their own universes. Each monad is destined to create its own universe.


3722
There comes, to every monad, a stage when it feels self-sufficient ... like a fledgling which has tested its wings and is ready to fly: So it is, when an attainer begins its own universe.


3723
Immature monads are fearful at the onset of physical dispersal, but attainers are ready for the metamorphosis ... ready to start their own universes. And, to the fearful, they say 'choose an attainer and join its host'. All will be cared for.


3724
All order-systems are dissipative, and their dissipated quality is attracted to new aternative ideative matrices. Nature abhors chaos, and new ideated regimes (new universes) exercise a powerful attraction on quality which is in a chaotic state.


3725
The universe of a monad is the universe of its interest. Knowledge is attracted to centres of interest.


3726
Information is relative to the degree of attention: Where there is no attention, there is no information and no communication.


3727
Where a monad has no information concerning another monad, that other monad does not exist in its universe.


3728
The universe of a monad consists only of that which is known to it, and of that which it needs to know and wants to know.


3729
The concept, of physically separate unknowns, does not exist as far as monadic perception is concerned. Monads are transfinite beings which have no physical perception: Their perception is purely qualitative.


3730
All the propositions of this network are consistent with each other, in that they assist the network operator to prepare his predictions without any feeling on his part that he is excluding any of them or that any of them are not contributing to the prediction process.


3731
This network is a tool and, like every other tool, it needs to be maintained. It needs to be 'honed' and kept in use ... and its parts need to be upgraded from time to time: It needs to be looked after with care.


3732
The willing-mind (or will-mind), of a self-realised monad, has magic powers. The works of Christ are examples of these powers.


3733
The Absolute is magic ... that is, all existence has magic qualities. These qualities only exist when we know them and believe in them: They are qualities of the will and of the mind.


3734
Magic powers are transfinite powers and, as such, they command over all time-space phenomena, which are of lesser power.


3735
Monads, being sovereign and transfinite, are not affected in any way by the exercise of magic powers.


3736
All monads are magic and have magic powers, but these are powers over phenomena and not over monads.


3737
A monad's powers only actualise when the monad realises that it possesses them.


3738
An alternative point of view is that there is no such thing as magic, and that everything is subject to the rule of law. This is a valid viewpoint for those who wish to hold it. However, the power of will-mind over phenomena is so miraculous that a reference to magical powers does not seem out of place. After all, as absolute and sovereign beings, we are also magic beings ... for, we make the laws that constitute the rule of law.


3739
When we prehend and comprehend something, we create knowledge or data or information.


3740
Prehension and comprehension are cohesive by nature and quality. Knowledge is essentially cohesive.


3741
When we (monads) cohere knowledge, we cohere by the quality of singularity; existence is essentially cohesive.


3742
We (monads) process the quality of singularity to the quality of knowledge.


3743
We (monads) create our environment of singularity and, in this process, we gain self-awareness or self-knowledge.


3744
We monads make our food and we store it ... and we call it 'environment'.


3745
The Absolute, which is singular in completeness, is differentiated by us (monads) in our minds. It is we who create things: It is we who create order and it is we who create disorder.


3746
When we (monads) create our environment, we are processing singularity into consumables. Our environment is the quality of the Absolute in consumable form: Our environment is our food.


3747
Monads use their creative intelligence to release the quality of their environment and to make it available for consumption.


3748
As we (monads) grow qualitatively, we grow in creative intelligence. Our enhanced creative intelligence enables us to absorb more of the quality of our environment. By our creative intelligence, we make our environment more qualitative and we take more quality from our environment. Our creative intelligence farms quality and develops new kinds and varieties of quality and improves the quality yield.


3749
Creative intelligence is transfinite and, as it develops, its creations become more transfinite and less finite ... and their quality becomes more easily absorbable by monads, which are becoming more aware of their transfinite nature.


3750
Importantly, as we (monads) grow in creative intelligence and in quality generally, we take this from our environment. But, that which we take is ours: It is our own creation, which we nave created for our own use.


3751
The more quality a monad possesses, the more creative power it has, and the more it is able to create ... and to destroy, in order to create. The more quality a monad has, the more god-like it becomes.


3752
As a monad becomes aware of itself, as an absolute being, it absorbs more and more quality from its environment and, as it absorbs it, it empathises with it and becomes one with it. Nothing is lost, but a metamorphosis has taken place ... and that which was finite has become transfinite.


3753
Monads exteriorise, as environments, that quality which they are not yet ready to absorb. All environments are the stored food of monads.


3754
Monads are transformers: They transform finite quality to transfinite quality.


3755
The exteriorised quality of monads is the finite quality of time-space universes.


3756
It is a natural law that each monad absorbs more and more quality: Monads become progressively more qualitative, as they re-integrate to singularity.


3757
As everything is in each moment, nothing is lost with each passing moment. Time has value only if one believes that one's time is limited in duration. A consciously transfinite being is free of all time constraints and has absolute equanimity as to the passage of time and the usage of time.


3758
There is always an apparent responsibility vacuum waiting to be filled.


3759
Singly or severally, we may elect to take any responsibility and any powers to carry out that responsibility.


3760
Those who take responsibility are those who need responsibility.


3761
Truth of detail is gained only at the expense of lesser truth of life in general. As light is focussed at a specific point, the remainder receives less light. Thus, both macro and micro propositions are needed in any network which seeks to encompass the comprehensive truth.


3762
As time-space is a subset of the infinite mainset, all time-space experience must pertain to the mainset as well as to the subset. Our consciousness and individuality is of subset and mainset. Should our subset consciousness and individuality cease, our mainset consciousness and individuality would still exist. Likewise, all events and experiences are of subset and mainset. Should our subset events and experiences cease, our mainset events and experiences would still exist. Our individual lives are eternal lives.


3763
That we can only describe existence in terms of itself, indicates that our perceived existence is an integral oneness. Of course, there may be something else which is extraneous to our perceived existence ... that is, something which we are unable to perceive.


3764
It does not necessarily follow that indiscernibles are identical. Transfinite phenomena, such as monads, may be indiscernible but not identical.


3765
A prediction scientist is an intelligence agent whose assignment is to obtain information concerning the future. It is as if the future is a country of unknown powers and unknown intentions ... and the agent must ascertain the facts and report back on actual and potential disadvantages and advantages: The agent must be on the alert not only for threats but also for opportunities.


3766
To increase our understanding of the past, is to speed-up the past; to increase our understanding of the present, is to speed-up the present; to increase our understanding of the future, is to speed-up the future. As time is an integral, to speed-up past present or future is to speed-up all time and to reduce remainder-time. Time is the duration of that which is unknown: When we increase our understanding, we decrease the unknown and we decrease time: To decrease time is to decrease remainder-time. When we fully understand the time-space subset, we metamorphose to the life-forms of the absolute mainset.


3767
The more awareness we invest in qualitative, transfinite things, the less awareness we invest in time-space things: We give life to the one and take it from the other.


3768
We create our own forms: Whether in finite subset or in infinite mainset, we create our own forms.


3769
The conditions arising, at the focus of perception, are the conditions of finity. By the interest implicit in our perception, we extend the Absolute in time and space in order that we may examine it ... and, in examining it, at one and the same time, we also create it. Thus, when we focus perception, we project what we perceive. As absolute beings, we are inseparably one with all aspects of creation. In creating, we perceive what we create: In perceiving, we create what we perceive.


3770
Finity is a function of perception. We perceive as finite that which is essentially infinite.


3771
The 'canvas', on which perception 'paints', is infinite. When we perceive, we perceive in terms of light ... and we 'paint' with light on an infinite 'canvas'.


3772
Monads create mass, as stores of quality ... and monads create movement, as means of gaining self-awareness.


3773
Monads use cohesion, as they perceive and as they impart movement.


3774
When monads focus or concentrate their attention, they enmass quality: When that focus or concentration is removed, quality is demassed.


3775
The finite subset is created by us as a milieu of our interest and as a store of our unrealised quality.


3776
When we perceive movement, we create that which moves and its motion.


3777
As the gravity of the finite subset decreases, the time and cohesion of the subset also decrease.


3778
Cohesion is a quality of the Absolute and its equilibrium state is that of singularity. In the finite subset, cohesion is stretched in time and in mass ... and, when this stretch tension is released, it 'snaps' back to singularity. The universe may appear to be intractable, everlasting and impregnable, but it is also as fragile as an idea.


3779
Perception is generative: Perception creates: Perception creates by growth and diversity.


3780
When the Absolute differentiates, it extends itself generatively ... as in the multi-subdivision of a cell. The Absolute is essentially biological by nature.


3781
When cohesion is stretched, from its equilibrium state of singularity to that of finite expression, light is created. Light is a flow of cohesion which takes place (between units of mass) when cohesion is in a tensed stretched finite condition. It is a major means by which the Absolute retains communication within its differentiated self.


3782
Both light and information are flows of cohesion.


3783
Light enables information: Light is information. Light and information are integrally related.


3784
To see is to perceive, is to be informed, is to know.


3785
Every percept, concept, thought and idea is a flow of cohesion.


3786
To know a thing is, at once, to cohere that thing and to disperse that thing. While we retain interest in the thing we know, it endures: When we lose interest in it, it disperses.


3787
Interest is a function of will: Duration is a function of will.


3788
Some things are theoretically true but are not common sense: Some things seem to be true and seem to be common sense: Other things are undoubtedly true and undoubtedly common sense.


3789
The most effective predictive thinking is that which calls upon total knowledge: What is required is holistic thinking, based upon holistic knowledge. No matter how penetrating knowledge may be concerning a specific branch of learning, the parameters of such a special field constitute it as a part and not the whole of knowledge. All forces join their powers in the issuance of future effects: For the prediction of future outcomes, knowledge of all forces is essential.


3790
Concepts which have constant emotive meaning and widely variant descriptive meaning, are well suited to the purposes of rhetoric ... namely to persuade and convince. Such concepts may be said to be valuative: 'freedom' is one such concept. People will tend to argue that 'freedom' applies to whatever state of affairs they consider to be desirable.


3791
To use the word 'free' implies an absence of a constraint and the presence of an agency which is able to evaluate what constitutes a constraint.


3792
Freedom' is inescapably valuative.


3793
Freedom' depends on some particular absence, some particular presence, and some particular agent to find this situation desirable or undesirable. To go beyond this is not to objectively define freedom, but to argue for or against some state of political or social affairs.


3794
As societal change speeds up, social laws become more outdated and ineffective.


3795
The increasing percentage of population in prisons is indicative of a failed attempt to impose order upon increasing chaos.


3796
Societies generally are failing to adopt to prevailing conditions of disorder.


3797
As the conformation and structure of society is in a state of flux, the forces of law and order now operate in disorder ... not knowing what forms of order are to be upheld.


3798
Societies are forced to become more preoccupied with change than with control ... and control agencies are becoming more isolated from the mainstream of society.


3799
Social entropy is marked by a breakdown of shared value-systems and a decline of effective ritual observances.
