Hi Peter.

When I wrote AoK, I deliberately focused
upon stuff that is, like what you've described,
"seeable" within "consciousness".

What you are describing is you conscious
experience of "supersystem configuration",
"active-passive phase shifting", and "dy-
namic subordinate coupling", as they are
discussed in AoK, Ap5.

I focused upon stuff like this so that folks'd
have opportunity to literally See the neural
Topology of their nervous systems function-
ing in rigorous accord with the TD E/I-min-
imization principle.

Unless it's pointed-out to folks, this stuff
is usually "configured"-out of "conscious-
ness" via 'just' more 'blindly'-automated
TD E/I-minimization -- which would be
a "good" thing =IFF= it were the case that
folks already understood all that's 'blindly'-
automated in-there, and the way that what
is so 'blindly'-automated 'blindly'-and-auto-
matically induces folks to Ravage one an-
other's Beings.

This stuff is one way of looking at what NDT
is all about. NDT 'says', "Take a 'moment' to
understand this stuff so that 'you' won't 'blind-
ly'-and-automatically do stuff to others that
both hurt their Beings and which, via 'blindly'-
automated TD E/I-minimization within =their=
nervous systems, induces them to hurt your
own Being right-back."

'Course, there's a =lot= more in NDT, but
this flat-out-"seeable" stuff is important as
a "door" to folks understanding with respect
to everything else.

I enjoyed reading your example, Peter.

Cheers, ken [k. p. collins]
