Symbols guide me.
    #27219265 - 02/21/21 11:29 PM (4 days, 14 hours ago)

Symbols guide me..

Information is made and communicated via symbology.

Each symbol is a node or mode of language.

Multiple symbols signal higher abstract thought (The measure of intelligence).

So we conclude that everything is made of symbols..

All measurement (meter) is an abstract symbol.

The highest knowledge of information puts the priori on the consciousness that is housing the information.

Information moves and communicates via the self (The Sun, seat of synod).

What is the symbol for the ligaments in your feet? - A prepackaged reality symbolized by the grocery store as homage to the cultivators.

And how will you put this to practical use?

Will symbols replace your breakfast cereal?

The good question is: Does all information communicate with symbols?

Is there information that isn't encoded on symbols?

Like when you know something does it have a material representation?

Information as an emergent phenomenon.

Maybe there is a place (The Tao) that is so pure it needs no symbolic format?

Otherwise everything exists as some type of symbol. The logos for example.

Everything exists as implicate order.. implicate meaning implied.. when you see something you know the meaning of a tree for example.. you have an archetype of what a tree is. That it grew from a seed and will drop seeds itself.

The amazing part as explicate order.. or what is Father Nature communicating to us? The explanation of what a thing is..

The idea is that we know what a tree is but each tree is different..

It might be meaningless to think why are things not identical to each other. Novelty and habit what McKenna believed in.

I think that human experience is encoded in the brain directly but it is remembered as part of an abstraction - a combination chimera of all associated instances that are similar.

the similarity of experienced things (classes of objects etc,) is a real aspect of memory, and when we experience it with real time introspective awareness, these meta-forms have tremendous strangeness and yet they are the closest thing I can imagine to Plato's concept of ideal forms. Possibly this is where graphic symbols fit in most aptly.

I think ideograms are a version of it and some asian alphabets are pictorial so yes, can be used for communicating, and now we have some emojis - serious fun business, but not that resonant personally.

While drifting off to sleep, I was in a warmly illuminated hallway with furniture that was not use-able, angles going in every direction, nothing was steady, carpet became wood became tile. kind of like the great spaghetti monster of hallways. All I can say is that Plato needs a cleaning lady.
