No 'wonder'

anyway, the "special topological homeomorphism" [AoK, short paper, Ap 3, 5,
7, 9] of the nervous system - the one IFR Geometry -[the 'skelleton' upon
which everything else is 'hung']  enables the extraordinarily-powerful
information-processing that happens between our Human ears.

you see, all of what's been 'difficult' in the algorithm stuff of
'traditional' computers [including 'parallel-processors] is Resolved in the
special topological homeomorphism of the nervous system.

there's no need to 'time' processing in a complex hierarchical fashion
[which is where 'complexity' goes exponential, and, thereby, thwarts
implementation of this or that algorithmic stuff.

all of the analogous stuff [all of the algorithmic 'complexity'] is
built-rithg-into the special topological homeomorphism, and [with respect to
machine implementation] the only problem becomes [as i discussed in the
"From Biological to Computational Model" thread] selecting any of an
infinite number of ways to assign 'memory' to the individual 'processors'.
and this isn't 'difficult' because, although there are these infinite ways,
it's 'difficult' to find a way to attach 'memory' that doesn't work. so what
the problem becomes is finding a way to attach 'memory' to the individual
'processors' that's in-the-spirit of the special topological homeomorphism.
and that isn't 'difficult' at all because, if one doesn't choose well, "5
happens" within the design, itself.

=ALL= of this has been right in the "Automation of Knowing..." ms. [AoK],
and the refs. cited in AoK, all along.

this's why it's been so 'hard' to experience all the 'silence'... the
'solitary confinement', and, you know, all of the hurtful stuff that used to
interrupt my discussions of this stuff.

i know how things 'looked'.

but i was in a Desperate 'Race' against the work of 'the beast' [Abstract
Ignorance], so i'd not the 'luxury' of allowing
'the-way-things-are-supposed-to-be' to 'reach-in' to 'steer' the course of
my efforts.

all along, i understood that folks were just Victims of 'the beast'.

i did what i could to just deal with this or that as it came-up, knowing
whence it came, and why, while working to not be 'steered' by it.

what was so 'Difficult' for me, then, was that i also knew that folks who
didn't, yet, understand, would tend to 'interpret' the actions i took to
shut-down 'the beast' as 'indicating' this, that or the other thing, with
respect to my Being, that is 'traditionally' 'negative'.

i knew that there were some, in fact, whose whole purpose was to provoke my
having to shut-down 'the beast', here in our shared electronic 'presence',
in order to 'demonstrate' this, that, or the other 'traditionally'
'negative' thing with respect to my Being.

over the years, i've watched, as several largely, but not-entirely,
'distinct' groups actually 'waged a 'dold war'' against one another with
respect to the stuff i was working to accomplish. within such, i was
relegated to 'irrelevancy'.

it was 'hilarious'. no one cared that i was out-here, pouring almost all of
my personal resources into my effort to bring the understanding forward.
'you' know, the stuff that folks usually use to purchase their ways within

but, until ~~three years ago, my personal resources were my only resources,
then my Father took-me-in, and his 'reward', in the end, was dying a
Hard-Death, alone(?), while i was jailed.

it's all so sad, but perhaps folks can find, within-it, reason to 'move away
from' 'the beast', instead of 'moving away from' Hope.

anyway, i Understood, all along, what was going-on. it's all right-there in
the special topological homeomorphism's 'language', in which i'm Conversant,
so, 'listening' to that 'language', how could i not understand?

it's all as plain-spoken to me as any 'normal' vocalized Conversation, so,
how could i not understand?

and with the understanding, comes Responsibility.

more 'hilarity'. all my efforts to act upon my understanding, in the Spirit
of AoK's "Epilogue" were 'interpreted', by some, as 'indicating' that i 'had
something to hide'.

but all i was Doing was holding-open the 'door' to all the Victims of 'the

i'll say here, now [with the stern Admonition that folks should not
'fly-off-the-handle' with respect to what i'll say], that i gained the
'Strength' to Continue, regardless, be-cause i Saw, early-on, that what i
was Suffering was the Same-Stuff that Jesus Suffered.

it was =not= 'the Jews' who killed Jesus.

it was =not='the Romans' who killed Jesus.

it was ='the beast' that Killde Jesus.

Abstract Ignorance.

the absence of understanding with respect to how and why nervous systems
process information via 'blindly'-automated TD E/I-minimization, within
nervous systems which, nevertheless, do process information via
'blindly'-automated TD E/I-minimization... it was this Same-Stuff that has
Ravaged Humanity since the beginning, and which Tragically =continues= to
Ravage Humanity, in rising cresendo in our 'time', that Killed Jesus.

and anyone who only looks will See that Jesus Knew all about 'the beast'.

the way i See it, Jesus was completing Creation by giving folks, who were
ready to Hear, the 'Keys-to-the-Kingdom' Stuff.

"Love your enemies."

"Do good to those who persecute you."

~~"Go the extra mile, and give 'em your shirt, too."

"New wine is for new wineskins." [teach the =Children=. even though the
'teachers' will 'move away from']

you know, one cannot comprehend what goes on within nervous systems without
Seeing Jesus, in-there, plain-as-day.

yet, the 'familiar' thing, among learned-'professionals', is to 'move away
from' Seeing such.

which is a 'beast'-induced 'choosing' to be 'blind'.

be-cause Jesus got-it-Right ~~2000 years ago, such 'beast'-induced
'blindness' is particularly Tragic.

folks 'cannot' embrace Simple Truth 'because' doing so would
'get-them-in-trouble' with their 'peers' [because they'd have to Recognize
Jesus in-there, and doing so is tacitly-'Outlawed' within the 'familiar'
stuff [the merely-TD E/I-minimizing stuff] of their local environments...
within their 'professional' spheres-of-interaction.

Man-Oh-Man! i can think of =nothing= more-Tragic than that.

reread Lincoln's "lock of 100 keys" metaphor. it's all about what 'the
beast' does to 'professionals' with respect to Truth.

'the beast' not only 'blinds' folks to Truth, it =coerces= folks to 'move
away from' Truth.

and Truth, being the stuff upon which the Universe rests, 'moving away from'
Truth results in folks' efforts 'moving away from' Fruition.

'moving away from' Hope for the future.

'moving away from' Peace.

and 'moving away from' such stuff constitutes 'moving toward'
self-destruction, doesn't it?


yet folks 'cannot' 'because' Jesus is in-there?

'pretty'-wimpy, no?

to be 'frightened' of one who says, "Love."

and, then, to 'wonder' why there's Hate everywhere one looks?

no 'wonder'.
