Brain clues to attention disorder

Below, is the first version of this night's 'addendum
to my prior discussion.

I 'hesitated' to post if because I did not want to
'be right' - did not want to 'take-advantage' of
the fact that I understand NDT's stuff, and others
do not.

But, then, I saw that I must post it because it
'moves toward' Truth, and there was some 'fearing'
of the 'valley' [and the treachery inherent] in my

'moving toward' Truth is 'Difficult' in this way.

Shall the 'Difficulty' Dictate what one can do?

Or shall Truth be one's Guide through the

With understanding, it's an Easy Choice.

But, remember, the Victimization of those who
do not [yet] understand how nervous systems
process information is in-Turth.

'Doors' must be held-open.

To =all= People, everywhere.

The shortest 'path' to that is in Honoring Truth.

So I bear the 'Difficulty'.

But there is one 'Difficulty' inherent.

'being right' =always= correlates to a WDB2T relative-
maximum - the 'top of a hill' in terms of WDB2T.

And to 'move toward' any higher [more-'maximum' :-]
'top of a hill', in terms of WDB2T, it's most-often the
case that one has to 'traverse' one, or more, WDB2T-'valley'.

But, when such is attempted, "rendering useless" occurs
within one's nervous system, be-cause, 'moving away from'
the WDB2T-'hill-top' and 'moving toward' the WDB2T-
'valley' constitutes a 'relinquishing' 'order - which occurs
within nervous systems as TD E/I(up).

It's what I was talking about when I said, "As far as 'being
right' goes, it's irrelevant, as long as one does, in fact, 'move
toward' Truth."

Get it?

'moving toward' augmented-TD E/I-minimization most-
often requires one to experience intervening decreased-
TD E/I-minimization.

But, if one is "Hell-bent" on 'being right', one cannot
'move' in this way. Instead, one remains 'stuck' upon
the 'familiar' WDB2T-'hill-top' that one has formerly

Get it?

There's =so much=, within 'modern' interactive dynamics
that acts to 'prevent' folks from 'traversing' through the
WDB2T-'valleys' that interven between relative-WDB2T-

If one insists on 'being right', one is 'trapped', even though
one's nervous system is fully capable of such 'traverses'.

For instance:

"O'Neill: Plan to Hit Iraq Began Pre-9/11

By Mike Allen
Washington Post Staff Writer
Sunday, January 11, 2004; Page A13"


"`It was all about finding a way to do it,' O'Neill said.
`That was the tone of it. The president saying, `Go
find me a way to do this.'"

We'll be hearing a lot about this in coming 'days'.

But it'll be mostly Waste - mostly 'nitpicking' about
what WDB2T-hill-tops' folks were 'standing upon'
when such and such happened.

Which is Sorrow-Filled because, look at all of the
Death, Destruction, and Misery that's occurred -
how many thousands of folks Killed in Iraq?

Hundreds of American Service Men and Women
Killed In Action [400+ since it was declared 'finished'],
close to 9,000 casualties. Multiply these numbers by
numbers of Family members, Friends, etc., and it's
seen that this particular 'being right' has been costly.

But can't we =Learn= from that?

Can't we find, within ourselves, a better way?

Can't we have the Courage to 'traverse the valleys'
of absence-of-understanding?

Can't we see that, on all 'sides', this 'vaunted
animosity', itself, 'moves away from' Truth - in
the name of 'being right'?

Mr. President, your decision was Erroneous.

You need to Correct it.

And you need to do that Forthrightly.

Anything else 'moves away from' Truth.

So, what will it be?

'being right', and reaping more of what's inherent
in 'moving away from. Truth, or doing the work
inherent in 'moving toward' Truth, and reaping
what's inherent in 'moving toward' Truth?

It's a 'test', Mr. President.

Do you have the Courage to 'traverse' the 'valley'
so that America can, once again, 'climb-higher',
and, once again, Lead in this way?

Or will you insist on 'being right', and, thereby, 'trap'
America on this 'hill-top' that is, itself, 'away from'
Truth - and which is 'moving away from' the America
that I Know and Love?

Please folks, it's a 'time' to =Help= those in Leadership
positions to reach Decisions that 'move toward' Truth.

It is =not= a 'time' to 'trap' folks in 'places' from which
they cannot 'move toward' Truth.

It's a =New= 'day'.

Together, we can do what Needs to be Done.

Our 'movement' with respect to such will be measured
in Lives Lived, or not, Destruction occurring, or not,
Suffering all around, or not.

The Battlefield is not in this Land or that, but within
our 'selves'.

Help America 'traverse' this 'valley' that 'separates' it
from Truth.
