The X/Y form is an original idea that I developed over time.
Here’s a short explanation of the X/Y form—the power of representation X by Y form. The X/Y form is like cause and effect, but where as effect follows cause (temporal dependence), the X/Y form, at its source, is independent of time and space. Also, where as “cause” is found in the blue quadrant of the observer/observered relationship and the “effects of causes” are also discovered in the blue quadrant of the observer/observered relationship, those same effects, in order to be discovered in the blue quadrant of the observer/observered relationship, first must be identified in the purple quadrant of the observer/observered relationship. The X/Y form, ultimately, is the cause/source of all quadrants; hence, the observer/observered relationship is an effect of the X/Y form.
In summary form:
X/Y = big bang, mass, energy….stars, galaxies, planets…. blue quadrant.
~(X/Y)(X/Y)=life, survival, continuity, death, mutation, natural selection…green quadrant.
(-(-(X/Y) (X/Y))(-(X/Y)(X/Y)))=implicative affirmative of the not-me-self, personhood, reason,–ability to make the changes necessary to perpetuate life and civilization while seeking truth, justice, happiness, and spiritual growth….purple quadrant.
Unfortunately, before I found a way to simplify the X/Y form to ~~b =X/Y, ~bb=~(X/Y)(X/Y), b~b~bb=(-(-(X/Y) (X/Y))(-(X/Y)(X/Y))), I used the X/Y form version in my explanation of the observer/observed relationship—making the communication of this new version of the observer/observed relationship very difficult to wrap one’s mind around; get a feel for; make sense of—in a word, understand. In my defense though, the X/Y form is more a record of the genesis of my version of the observer/observed relationship than it is an explanation of the observer/observed relationship. In other words, the b~b~bb idea would be incomplete without an explanation of its genesis.]
A head’s up here, I’m not sure yet (it’s a day to day thing), but I don’t believe my
future posts will lend themselves to pictures. Consequently, I have decided to post at least one picture per post—a picture of album covers. My CD collection is larger than my album collection but, as you might surmise, album covers are more photogenic. Since this begins the end-of-life reflection part of my journal, what better way to represent those reflections than to post along side of them the music (album covers) I grew up with! For the most part, the covers will be posted A through Z (expect incongruities though, some are not alphabetized and others are miss-alphabetized).
