Cold lessons

Month, Day: 171, Knowledge, Questions (Majesty)

The northern climes are starting to feel the cool blasts that try to obliterate the flow and bustle of summer and early fall. Seasons tell us a lot, especially winter for the northerners.

---

Several questions pertain to these changes that we see, yearly: cycles, Questions, etc. Of late, reflections on symmetry abound. 

For each, how well have we spent the bounty of our measures

Comprehension

Month, Day: 171, Might, Words (Beauty)

Earlier, we noted that Blaise was 200 years prior to the Revelation. That was written in the context of looking at symmetry (very important). Along that same line of thought, Leonhard Euler was 137 years. We will be getting back to him and his work in a more full senses (considering his personal philosophical views).

---

John von Neumann was 59 years, on this side. Be that as it may, let's use one of his notions. He is quoted thusly (paraphrase): with mathematics, we don't get understanding; we get used to it. So, we could talk inurement and more, say habits. That is, we work at things in order to get some semblance of mastery. Yet, that is illusory when dealing with complex subjects.

If you do not see that, go ponder the Valleys beyond Unity and 1 & 2. Again, be that as it may, we see the world being overlaid insidiously with misused mathematics (oh Lord, please deliver us). That topic has been broached here; we'll be getting back to it.

Basically, though, when we see people working in the abstract'd spaces, imagination is key. So, too, do we see thought brought to bear. See where I'm going (the Master's model - note post on Hitch)? How would we see comprehension come into play.

Well, it is not as tricky as one might think. Audacious? Perhaps.

Remarks:

10/30/2014 -- Symmetry.

09/16/2014 -- Of yes, did not mention memory. Well, we do know that seeing patterns, recognizing them, matching up with what we have seen already, and such things are memory dependent. And, the better this facility, the better one can be at handling the details.

Third question

Month, Day: 171, Might, Splendour (Perfection)

Tablet of the Seven Questions:
      O God, my God! I testify to Thy unity and to Thy oneness. I beseech Thee, O Thou Possessor of names and Fashioner of the heavens, by the pervasive influence of Thine exalted Word and the potency of Thy supreme Pen, to aid me with the ensigns of Thy power and might, and to protect me from the mischief of Thine enemies who have violated Thy Covenant and Thy Testament. Thou art, verily, the Almighty, the Most Powerful.

Science allows?

Month, Day: 171, Names, Words (Grace)

This link is a chapter in a book that is a nice compilation: Psychic Phenomena. The reason for the specific link follows, however the book is readily available as the starting point in looking at particular questions.

And, given the thrusts of technology, and in the underlying engineering and science, we have to expect that a whole lot of topics will be touched upon in the future. That is, being under the cover of science seems to lend objectivity (however, arguable points abound here).

This bit on morphic resonance is an example: Scientific Heretic ... on Morphic Fields, Psychic Dogs and Other Mysteries. There are many more examples that will be looked at (in an audacious mode).

For now, we're in a collection phase. 

Remarks:

08/26/2014 -- Science comes from our being able to ask Questions. Now, whether there are answers is the open issue.

Cosmology

Month, Day: 171, Mercy, Names (Justice)

We are in the Teleological times.

The following table (from Wikipedia) is offered without comment. 
 

It is worth a whole lot of contemplation that can ensue from this.

Remarks:

07/27/2014 --  Great Ether. Looking a people, we can consider their position (pre/post) the Revelation. So, we're 170 past (Year 171). That would put 1674, as 170 the other side. Say what! ... Too, the blinders of data are strong (to be discussed). Insidious overlays result that prevent people from developing, as they ought. 

07/09/2014 --Aqdas 181-183 applies.
