Manifesto: New axioms of linguistics, philosophy, and psychology are much needed

The sciences or fields of inquiry mentioned in the headline above need companions based on different premises. These companions might be called speechology, thinkology, and beology.

Speechology would be founded on the axioms that we speak and that the proximate impetus and deep impetus of almost all speech acts are profoundly important, complex, consequential, revealing, and even enlightening. In scientific terms, they are profoundly satisfying to observe and understand and much follows from observing and understanding them.

Something similar can be said about thinkology and beology or a fourth science of actology.

Moving these fields of inquiry away from the fields named in the headline above will give them a fresh start, allowing them to make new discoveries based on new observations, practices, insights, and conclusions.

For example, some of this work has already been done in speechology, the results of which include and inform the fields of thinkology and beology. In addition to the axioms that “we speak” and that “the impetus of speech acts is complex and revealing,” we also have the discovered and richly explored the axiom that “interpersonal speech acts often are seriously misunderstood and not corrected” thus leading to the axiom that touches upon thinkology and beology that “as a result, our thinking and acting are often profoundly in error leading to massive snowballing and suffering from then on.”

The above paragraph makes several nontrivial statements based on demonstrable facts derived from a copious study of speechology. This study has been done using FIML rules and procedures. The difficulty in sharing the knowledge gained through FIML practice is it is based on the interpersonal communications of two unique individuals. This does not make it less scientific. This makes it a precise tool, akin to a microscope or measuring device. Other individuals can use this same precise tool to see and measure their speechologies.

Virtually all people will initially understand a speechology inquiry such as FIML in terms of the linguistics, philosophy, and psychology they already know. This will hamper rapid understanding of what FIML is and what it does because real FIML data will all be fundamentally unique to the individuals doing it. Yes, many insights will be generalizable but the tendency to generalize will immediately lead away from the precision of the FIML tool, thus dulling its resolution and accuracy. This is a very important distinction. It is this distinction that gives FIML its power and that calls for a new name for this field of inquiry.

Chinese whistleblower claims first COVID outbreak was INTENTIONAL and happened in October 2019 at Military World Games in Wuhan – two months before China notified the world about virus

A whistleblower has sensationally claimed China deliberately spread Covid at a military tournament two months before the rest of the world knew about the deadly virus.

Ex-Chinese Communist Party insider Wei Jingsheng said The World Military Games in October 2019 could have acted as the virus’ first superspreader event.

The international tournament for military athletes was held in Wuhan – the origin of the Covid-19 pandemic – two months before China notified the World Health Organisation about its first cases.

DOD wants anomalous health incidents reported

SecDef’s letter asking DOD members to report any anomalous health incidents which have occurred, and noting, “Over the course of the last several years, and predominantly overseas, some DoD personnel have reported a series of sudden and troubling sensory events such as sounds, pressure, or heat concurrently or immediately preceding the sudden onset of symptoms such as headaches, pain, nausea, or disequilibrium (unsteadiness or vertigo).” So some DOD personnel have been hit by such weaponry while inside the United States. There is no way a human could get by the ground surveillance in the US. Either it is Cabal itself and the surveillance is support, or it would have to be a highly technologically sophisticated entity decades or even centuries ahead of us scientifically. This is very important to understanding the reality of the world we are living in, whatever the reality behind it.

FLASHBACK: Chinese Communist member data leak shows thousands in US government, companies and more: report

A leaked database of 2 million Chinese Communist Party (CCP) members revealed that thousands of Chinese communist members infiltrated U.S., U.K., and Australian government agencies and companies, new reports revealed over the weekend.

The database leak, originally reported by The Australian, revealed the identities of nearly 2 million CCP members, thousands of which were discovered to be employed by western businesses and government agencies, and 79,000 branches of the CCP.

The Australian described more than 7,000 CCP members identified in just seven major global companies.

Buddhism and KOBK: Kill-or-be-killed

Buddhism holds that the human realm is ineluctably characterized by delusion. That means the human realm, NOT individual humans.

KOBK is a deep feature of the human mind, at both societal and individual levels. At the societal level (more than a small group), KOBK cannot be eliminated. This is so because large groups always communicate on levels that do not represent the fullness of human subjective experience; and this causes serious mistakes to arise and accrue, leading to clashes, violence, war. From a Buddhist point of view, this might be thought of as the basis for the delusion that always binds human life until at an individual level, it is seen through and completely understood causing enlightenment or freedom from all delusion and the cessation of rebirth in the human realm.

In Buddhism, a full understanding of suffering, dukkha, the First Noble Truth yields complete enlightenment instantly.

Before we attain that stage of existence, Buddhism councils us to behave compassionately toward all other sentient beings while keeping our spiritual eye on ultimate wisdom, total liberation from the dukkha of the human realm.

Buddhism does not reject new ideas. KOBK is a game-theory explanation of one reason the human realm has always been characterized by delusion and suffering. This analysis of KOBK should not in any way encourage any intelligent person to consciously engage in KOBK behaviors (except in some kinds of self-defense). If KOBK is fully understood, it should help us as individuals and friends to better access the ultimate reality of the Buddha Mind, the Tathagata, Logos, God.

In Buddhism we did not “originally sin.” We are originally good but we are living in a pretty rough place. If we understand that many people with enormous earthly power feel forced to engage in KOBK, we will better understand this realm.

How to understand the deep strategy of earthly political power: KOBK

The ultimate game-theory of top global political power on earth is KOBK: kill-or-be-killed. There is no other option.

This is so because top players can never be sure of the intentions of other top players. The world at the top is like an uneasy group of mafia bosses who can be and often are killed and replaced.

In world politics, Mutually Assured Destruction (MAD) acted as a Nash Equilibrium which held well-enough during the Cold War. But those days are gone: Uncontrollable unrestricted warfare is the game being played now.

(Tactics include: mass infiltration and spying, sedition, terrorist acts, poison, murder, bioweaponry, mind-control, propaganda, information collection, theft, control of money, Central Bank Digital Currency, mandates, captured agencies, bribery, blackmail, etc. Uncontrolled unrestricted warfare allows for anything. If you don’t do it, your enemies will.)

If we keep this in mind, our analyses of what is happening now and what will happen in future will be much sharper and to the point. Briefly, top players must always seek more power, more information, better weapons, and more ways of using whatever they have to destroy both real and potential rivals.

This is why we are seeing USA and other 5-Eyeys countries gathering as much information as they can about their own citizens as well as the rest of the world. This is why these same powers are mandating masks, lockdowns, vaccines, quarantines, and so on—to exercise total control over their own people. Absolute power plus maximum information collection is the only way they can assure themselves they are safe from their own people.

We can see Beijing is doing the same thing. To many, it appears 5-Eyes are imitating Beijing by creating their own “social-credit” system of surveillance and total control. A better analysis is they must do that based on KOBK dictates.

It is important to understand that people at the top ultimately have no choice but to follow KOBK dictates. Given the game they are playing—kill-or-be-killed—they have no choice but to aim for totalitarian control. This is what we all should expect to see more of. This is the inevitable direction the world is heading in. Kill-or-be-killed is the ultimate, irreducible, ineluctable game being played today.

This does not mean we cannot or should not fight back. It does mean that we must understand what we are fighting against. Uncontrolled, unrestricted warfare is necessarily the game top players are playing on all fronts.

UPDATE: KOBK is 100% amoral. A KOBK player could be evil or good, a demon or a saint, or anything in-between. I emphasize KOBK because it is a rock-bottom game-theory that no player can escape. If a player even suspects his potential rival is going to play by KOBK rules, he has no choice but to do the same. The Kill-or-be-Killed basis of KOBK does not mean literally kill the person. It means kill their ability to threaten you with KOBK. As a power, a suspected KOBK rival must be utterly destroyed. KOBK battles often do kill real people, but their game-theory essence is only to kill the ability of the rival to fight. Another aspect of KOBK is its tendency to escalate very rapidly. This happens because any suspicion that a rival is going KOBK must be met with a savage KOBK blow. ABN

How deep state and extra-state actors work to control your mind

ACLU comes out in SUPPORT of vaccine mandates. If you want to know if an organization is infiltrated by Cabal, just ask yourself if the organization would pose a threat to Cabal’s illegal intelligence operation if it were run honestly, and honestly pursued its stated goals. If so, Cabal then saw that too, infiltrated it with their agents, and turned it into a honeypot to give them a heads up on anybody who wanted to take them on.

Game theory and interpersonal relations

563 words

Game theory uses models to understand how people interact under predetermined conditions or rules.

The end result of any particular model is called its “equilibrium.” Equilibrium implies no one will change their input if external conditions remain the same.

One way to make a game theory model is to reason backwards from the equilibrium you want. To keep it simple, there are two players.

Let’s say we want an interpersonal equilibrium that is honest, clear, and open to the dynamic reality of life. Here is a hypothesis: an equilibrium like that should also result in psychological optimization, psychological well-being for both players.

To achieve that equilibrium, my game model will be based on the following rules:

  1. communication will be as honest as possible
  2. communication will be as clear as possible
  3. all acts of communication (within reason) will be subject to clarification, revision, correction, and explication to the point (within reason) that there is no misunderstanding and whatever ambiguity remains is reduced to its lowest practical level

To do this, players will:

  1. focus on the smallest practical units of communication because error and ambiguity (which often leads to error) frequently begin at this level; this level includes: words, phrases, gestures, tone of voice, expressions, gasps, laughter, grunts, and so on; anything that communicates; all pertinent semiotics
  2. correcting error at the above level, which we will call the micro-level, ensures that small mistakes do not lead to large mistakes; it also teaches players how to correct errors at meso and macro levels of communication
  3. since human minds are limited in what they know and can communicate, and if players are diligent in following the above rules, players will steadily become more familiar with each other; how they speak, hear, think, what their references are, their values, beliefs, and so on
  4. if they continue to maintain these practices, they will build on their mutual familiarity, eventually achieving an interpersonal equilibrium that is honest, clear, and open to the dynamic reality of life

I have played this game with my partner for over ten years and can attest that it has worked even better than we had hoped.

Not only have we achieved an interpersonal equilibrium that is honest, clear, and open to the dynamic reality of life, but also what we hypothesized has come to pass: this equilibrium has also resulted in what feels to us to be psychological optimization and psychological well-being for both of us.

The rules to our game can be found here: FIML.

Note that initially FIML will upset your normal interpersonal equilibrium, whatever that may be. It cannot be otherwise. Note also that the rules of FIML will help you find or create a much better equilibrium.

If FIML is undertaken in a spirit of exploration, creativity, and fun, it will tend to self-generate or self-catalyze many new insights into your psychologies and how you interact with each other.

The ultimate FIML equilibrium is a dynamic one that keeps both partners open to the dynamic reality of life. With little or no “content” of its own, FIML rules allow partners to adapt to or create any “reality” they want.

Once understood, FIML is pretty much only difficult in the very beginning because in the beginning it will upset your normal interpersonal equilibrium. By doing FIML, you are choosing to change your normal equilibrium to a more efficient one.

Games as semiotic focus

Define a game as “a set of rules that focuses and directs thought, feeling, intention.”

Most human games are overwhelmingly involved with human semiotics. Human feeling, thought, and intention overwhelmingly operate within and are defined by human semiotics.

Humans are semiotic animals who live within semiologies as much or more than their natural environments. Few of us can even comprehend our natural environments save through a semiotic system.

A semiology is a signal system, a system of signals. Humans need and want their signal systems to be organized; from this arises culture and psychology.

From this arises the many games of human semiotic organization. Humans crave meaning—a synonym for semiotic organization and focus—and thus play games (as defined above) with their intentions, thoughts, emotions, behaviors, instincts, perceptions, desires, and so on. Without meaning, focus, purposive semiotic organization, life is dismal and many humans destroy themselves and others for this alone.

Human semiotic organization can be beneficially reorganized in two basic ways:

  • Through general thought, which mainly changes how we focus and what we focus on. This region of organization includes all culture and science, including mainstream psychology and its treatments.
  • Through analysis of the most basic elements of semiotic organization, individual semiotics and semiologies. To do this at the individual level, two individuals are needed because you cannot successfully analyze your own semiotics by yourself. This is so because a great number of human semiotics are fundamental to both psychology and communication. They do not exist independently.

The goal of reorganizing individual semiologies is to optimize them. As individual semiologies optimize, individual psychologies inevitably optimize apace. Much is possible at this level that is not possible at the general level of psychological theory.

Reorganization at this level is done through individual semiotics, the actual signals of individual communication and psychology alike. To play this game—the game of semio-psychological reorganization and optimization—you have to have rules. Here they are.

USA cannot defend Taiwan, war-games show

This is a fairly detailed article well-worth reading in full, Below is a small excerpt. ABN

…the PLA had clearly studied U.S. military operations over the course of two wars against Iraq. Both operations relied on a methodical, months-long buildup of forces to uncontested bases in the region, followed by U.S. aircraft dominating the skies and then carrying out devastating attacks on the enemy’s command-and-control systems.

China’s answer was a well-funded strategy that the Pentagon refers to as “anti-access, area denial” (A2/AD), meaning it would prevent an adversary like the U.S. from being able to carry out the sort of significant military buildup it carried during the two Iraq wars. The PLA’s military plans rely on space-based and airborne surveillance and reconnaissance platforms; massive precision-guided missile arsenals; submarines; militarized man-made islands in the South China Sea; and a host of conventional air and naval forces to hold U.S. and allied bases, ports and warships in the region at risk. Because it lies only 90 miles from Taiwan, China needs only to hold U.S. forces at bay for a matter of weeks to achieve its strategic objective of capturing Taiwan.

“Whenever we war-gamed a Taiwan scenario over the years, our Blue Team routinely got its ass handed to it, because in that scenario time is a precious commodity and it plays to China’s strength in terms of proximity and capabilities,” said David Ochmanek, a senior RAND Corporation analyst and former deputy assistant secretary of defense for force development. “That kind of lopsided defeat is a visceral experience for U.S. officers on the Blue Team, and as such the war games have been a great consciousness-raising device. But the U.S. military is still not keeping pace with Chinese advances. For that reason, I don’t think we’re much better off than a decade ago when we started taking this challenge more seriously.”

Consciousness as reality itself

In Buddhism the idea that consciousness is reality and reality is conscious is called “mind only” or Yogachara.

David Ray Griffin, a process theologian, has come to similar conclusions—that reality is fundamentally conscious.

As has Donald D. Hoffman, a professor of cognitive science at UC Irvine.

Hoffman came at this subject from a mathematical angle, but arrived at a similar conclusion to Yogachara Buddhism. Hoffman says:

As a conscious realist, I am postulating conscious experiences as ontological primitives, the most basic ingredients of the world. I’m claiming that experiences are the real coin of the realm. (The Case Against Reality)

I tend to reach similar conclusions when I think about everything in terms of signals.

The advantage of thinking in terms of signals is we get a good picture of “reality” without needing to say what is real beyond the signal itself.

This kind of thinking is helpful for metaphysics but it is also extremely practical when it comes to human psychology.

Rather than posit personality types and what goes wrong or right with them, we analyze how people send and receive signals instead.

In thinking along these lines, I have come to the conclusion that most psychology as most people understand it uses “arms-length” language, the language of meso and macro signals rather than the much more precise language of the micro signals that actually comprise our shared “realities.”

The difference can be illustrated in this way: Rather than explain your most recent signal (sent or received) in terms of personality, explain it by accessing the micro-signals of short-term memory to find its true antecedents.

If you do this again and again by using a game such as FIML, you will probably come to conclusions similar to the above—that there is no deeper substance to psychological reality than your consciousness of it.

If you can’t trust the plan, trust the president

If you can’t trust the plan, trust the President. If you can’t trust the President because you’re feeling too anxious about events and the relentless demoralization campaign that is being performed for your benefit, remember, all the tea leaves in the world will determine absolutely nothing.

Of course you’re anxious to see action. Joseph Stalin was practically SCREAMING for the Normandy invasion for years before it happened. And yet, not even Eisenhower knew the precise day, since after years of preparation, he wasn’t able to launch it on June 5th as planned, and had to hold off for a day due to inclement weather.

So relax. There is no reason, none whatsoever, to believe things aren’t proceeding precisely as they are supposed to proceed. The double envelopment is taking place. The enemy legions are trapped and helpless. I won’t even think about worrying until 48 hours AFTER someone else is sworn in as POTUS. I am, quite frankly, more than a little excited to watch it all unfold. This is the sort of history about which we have only hitherto been able to read.

And if the time comes and things don’t go as we expect, then we fight in the shade.

Regardless, the Dread Ilk are feared; they do not fear.

If you happen think you have ANY idea what’s going on behind the scenes based upon the media coverage, rest assured that you don’t. There is apparently a MASSIVE trial of the Calabrian mafia that began today, and there is not one single word of it in the Italian media. We first caught word about it in the French media before it was covered by the English media…

Be patient, everyone

Is covid political theater? And if so what’s the plot?

The line of thought presented in this Twitter string is that China understood covid is a minor illness and ignored it.

That means that the CCP has been doing political theater: 1) first with the showy Wuhan lockdown and fear campaign last winter; and 2) then claiming their superior one-prty state has defeated the virus through tough measures.

Isn’t it strange that even today it’s hard to be sure what is going on in the West? Are year-on-year death rates the same with many being falsely classified as covid? Why is there no flu this year? PCR tests are notoriously inaccurate, yielding very large false positives.

Is “the West” destroying itself? Or is the West’s Deep State destroying the last remnants of independent thought and action among its plebs by destroying small businesses? The largest transfer of wealth in world history has been the transfer from small businesses to large ones due to covid lockdowns. The second largest has been the transfer of wealth from the West to China. Are the two connected by political ideology as well as greed and psycopathy?

A sinister, and I believe plausible, possibility concerning covid is China had already vaccinated its people before they released the covid bioweapon in 2019. That would mean covid is real in the West and that the West has not been deliberately destroying itself but is actually trying to save itself.

Then again, the truth may be a combination of all of the above with the addition of truckloads of Western corruption and naivete toward China. One thing is certain in my mind, the Western Deep State/Dem/RINO/media/corporate cabal have used covid to persevere in their coup against president Trump and the American people.
