Mapping the Continuum with Words

December 6, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments


This chart of the MSR Continuum highlights symmetric nature of the spectrum. New in this edition is the category of “Theoretical Subject”. This is a piece to the puzzle that has had me curious for several years. The theoretical subject is also know as the view from nowhere – an unacknowledged voyeuristic perspective which is central to science, but which had never perfectly clicked into the continuum before. Now it’s easier for me to understand how thinking relates to objectification of the self, and how math and science amplify and refine that perspective.

I’m also liking the label of “Unnatural” to balance the opposite “Supernatural” category. The uncanny quality of artificial substitutes and robotic behavior fits in well as the extreme end of Nous or mind. The oversignification of psyche is overly proprietary and solipsistic.

    “Now it’s easier for me to understand how thinking relates to objectification of the self, and how math and science amplify and refine that perspective.”
    Speaking of which…I just discovered David Bohm!

      Ah cool. I feel like I am really saying pretty much what he understood thirty years ago, although I take it further in tying together the implicate and explicate orders together as the primordial identity that is sensory-motive rather than information-theoretic. He knew what was up, he just was thinking of it still through the Western-objectifying perspective.

        K. That is helpful. I am playing catch up and probably always will be as I am not formally educated but have a keen interest in understanding the big picture. Life is short, how could we not want to know.
        As well, it seems that true understanding would bring humans together and align ourselves more with the rest of the universe.
        Your blog is a bit dense for me, nut I do glean a bit more understanding from reading here. Thanks!
