I'm not 'familiar' with the particular
visual dysfunction that Peter's brought-
up, but a subtle version of an alnalgous
thing occurs routinely within all 'normal'
nervous system function.
It's the main thing that I've been discus-
sing, all along, with respect to 'blindly'-
automated TD E/I-minimization.
As TD E/I-minimization occurs, folks
tend to "range", both cognitively and
behaviorally, within ever-'shrinking'
"worlds", and their cognition and be-
havior increasingly reflects the "still
shot" that "hovers"-around TD E/I-
This always occurs as a result of
global-system energydynamics, and
not as a function of innate nervous-
Which is why I'm always writing
about "removing the 'blindness' through
coming to understand how and why
nervous systems process information
via 'blindly'-automated TD E/I-min-
All that's necessaryis to routinely
Choose to "range widely" within one's
external experiential environment, and
achieve TD E/I-minimization with re-
spect to what's in the "wide-ranging-
ingness" that's so-experienced.
The energydynamics are discussed,
sufficiently, in AoK. Ap7 discusses
the "key" energydynamic -- the "vol-
itional diminishing-returns decision"
Within routine circumstances, folks're
'maxed-out' by their "responsibilities"
that they are literally =driven= into
"ranging narrowly" -- in order to main-
tain their sources of income, their 'fit-
ting-in' within their peer groups and
Family dynamics, etc.
The costs inherent in such "ranging
narrowly" are Immense within the
general dynamics of Humanity. The
coercion inherent literally stands in
the way of Humanity's going-forward.
All of this is what Jesus was talking
about when He said:
"Do you think that I have come to
bring peace to the earth? No, I tell
you, but rather division! From now on
five in one household will be divided,
three against two and two against three;
they will be divided: father against son
and son against father, mother against
daughter and daughter against mother,
mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law
and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law."
He was saying, "Think for yourself, not
in accord with what you've experienced
within your "Familiar" circumstances."
And the only way such can be accomp-
lished it through "ranging widely" be-
yond one's 'familiar' stuff -- to achieve
TD E/I-minimization with respect to our
"neighbors'" external experiential realities --
you know, to "go the extra mile" [which
is literally what "ranging widely" is :-]
Else 'blindly'-automated TD E/I-minimi-
zation converges upon the "still shot"
stuff that's like the visual dysfunction
example that Peter has brought-up.
Jesus wasn't "kidding".
Jesus Knew! how our nervous systems
I cannot "explain" such.
I've just seen it with my own eyes in
the Experimental results that have
been accumulated by my Colleagues
I understand, given the "still shot" that's
been converged upon [via 'blindly'-
automated TD E/I-minimization] within
nervous systems that 'move toward'
doing 'science', that my Honoring Jesus'
Priority is 'Hard-to-swallow', and that
I'll, therefore, be 'moved away from'.
As far as I'm concerned, it's just a
matter of Honor-in-Science. If I didn't
do it, I'd be a Plagerist.
I Honor Truth.
