Sorry, the above isn't stated properly. if one successfully traverses one's
continuum of relative familiarities [AoK, Ap4] from familiar 'hatred' to
unfamiliar Love, then one will've passed through the "zone of randomness"
[ZoR; AoK, Ap4], and, iff one endures such passage, one =will= have
"inverted" [AoK, Ap4] re. the stuff of the particular 'sub'-continuum, or

so, safety =does= exist in this "meta" inversion, which is actually what the
whole msg is about.

i was 'thinking' with respect to the volitional diminishing-returns decision
threshold [AoK, Ap7], but, incorrectly, referred, in writing, to the
dynamics of "inversion". safety does =not= exist in caving-in under the
'weight' of the ["meta"-'level'] "volitional diminishing-returns decision"
threshold. safety exists in doing the work inherent in raising the
threshold, which is a prerequisite of successfully traversing the ZoR,
inverting from 'hate' to Love in the process. if the V D-r threshold isn't
raised, one's nervous system will thrust behavioral dynamics out of the ZoR
=without= one's completing passage through the ZoR. [to see the curve, and
the necessary 'jump' from one affective alignment to the other, plot any odd
negative-power function y=1/kx^(2m-1), where k is a power coefficient, and m
is integer. but remember, this simple visualization tool is replaced by the
"Information Calculus" stuff that's presented in AoK, Ap6.]

i've misled in stating the above. part of the Problem is that the stuff has
been 'perceived' as 'being-wispy', but that's an only-superficial
'perception'. the stuff derives it's Determining-power from its correlated
"biological mass" [AoK, Ap5] which, because it's so culturally-fundamental,
is extremely-familiar, and, thus, extremely-well-TD E/I-minimized, and,
therefore, Huge.

my point was actually with respect to the stuff's being 'merely'-familiar,
yet, simultaneously, the stuff-that-Slaughters.

doesn't compute, except in terms of 'blindly'-automated TD E/I-minimization.

[i mean no offense. just the opposite. surely there is a way to Honor G-D
=without Killing 'in-G-od's-Name, and that's what i'm Encouraging folks to
seek-and-find. my prior discussions re the =one= Intrenal Frame of Reference
Geometry that all Human nervous systems share, applies, as does the
fact-for-Believers that, Profession-of-Belief puts one in disagreement with
G-d, because Killing because 'one doesn't like' how another's nervous system
processes information constitutes a Striking-Out at G-d, who, it is,
simultaneously, Professed-to-be-Believed, Created the =one= design for Human
nervous systems.

instead of Killing, come to understand how differing environmental
conditions drive the one, shared, nervous system design, differentially.

then, allow this understanding to empower work to remove that which drives
the one, shared, nervous system design Discordantly.

again, this doesn't mean that everyone has to become a 'uni-clone'. it's
just the opposite of such. the transformation is all at the "meta"-'level',
from 'hate' to Love, simultaneously for Brother and Sister Humans, =and=

rather than 'delimiting' Choice, such breathes Life into Free Will, be-cause
it lifts folks up above all the Tragic-Waste inherent in 'hatred', and,
simultaneously, Frees folks to move in directions that were formerly
'prohibited' to them because doing so would get them Killed.

one Prerequisite remains: Love. absence-of-such 'slams-the-door-shut', and
passage through the ZoR becomes,
commensurate-to-the-absence-of-Love-Difficult, or, through Choice
['consensus', 'convention', 'tradition'], 'impossible'.

with the Courage to Love, all that was, formerly, Wasted can, upon
successfully completing passage through the ZoR, be, instead, put-into

the resulting-Difference is =Huge=, and, to the degree of Completeness
inherent, Beneficial.

it's the Stuff-of-Hope.

it's as Lincoln said: "... no good thing has been, or can be enjoyed by us,
without having first cost labor."

the Work done in gaining passage through the ZoR is the Cost of Realizing

[i realized, while going over my prior post, that the "zone of randomness"
is also the "zone of Hope", it's 'where' =all= 'Growth' happens, and the
"inversions" that occur within-it fall along a continuum of magnitude, from
infinitely-small [in the realm of ionic 'charge'] to infinitely-large
[always out-of-reach-but-'beckoning'.]

so, "be not afraid..." of passage through the "zone of randomness". it's
where all Hope Lives.

i stand on the rest of what what i've posted.
