Dorothy and the Wizard appears to be in the
order of Transformation,
Purple Orange Green Red Blue Yellow
The self reference of awareness distinguishes
relevant and non relevant but not good and evil.
The self reference of knowledge
solves good and evil but does not deal well with true and false.
The self reference of understanding
aces true and false but is ineffectual when faced with resolvability.
Consider the definition - "That which cannot be defined in any way
whatsover". It is definately a definition, but what does it define?
Not undefinability by characteristic. That would be data that's too fuzzy,
indistinct, overlapping borders etc. That sort of undefinability is easily
No, that sentence is saying that what it says cannot be said. Undefinable per
It could also be stated as "That which can not be referred to in any way
at all". It is a reference but what does it refer to?
It's rather like the street sign that says "Nameless Street". Is it
that the street has no name? Or is "Nameless" the name of the street?
And if it's "Sans Nom" and you don't speak any French is "Sans
Nom" the name of the street until you learn French and then the street
doesn't have any name?
Is there a concept which is inherently undefinable and cannot be referred to in
any way whatsoever? And didn't I just refer to it?
That concept surely exists but it must non-exist without actually non-existing.
In Theosophy that concept is called Recursion and is the single
axiom that Theosophic Ontology is based on.
Recursion is what the self reference of understanding does not understand and
thus is the problem met in the Land of Naught.
(( Resolvability is today's hot problem in mathematics, philosophy and
theoretical physics. ))
In the context of Blue then,
the following is a secondary sequence of Transformation.
Blue / Clear - (recognition
of transition) the inherent underlying Void. They view the black sea of causal
chaos and meet the man of emptiness - parallels - if our existence comes from
nothingness, then isn't that our eventual fate? And isn't personal survival
after death wishful thinking and an illusion? And couldn't everything have come
into existence a moment ago just as it is now and how would we know the
difference if it did? And how would we know if we were a computer simulation in
(( If the man had used a better packing algorithm for those post holes he could
have nested them rather than stacking them and so stayed in Maine(?) the dairy
state of the time, and continued making superior holes for swiss cheese. Here
in Wisconsin we store swiss cheese holes in swiss cheese and so avoid packing
problems entirely ))
Blue / Purple - (recognition
of void) the Land of Naught where all is deadwood, even the trees. Trees made
of wood with leaves of shavings and a coarse bark like surface. Considering
that the wooden birds were flying around and the wooden cows were grazing on
the wooden splinter "grass", it's fair to suppose that those wooden
trees function as trees in some fashion rather than just being carved to
resemble a tree. And yet are wooden. Wooden trees rather than trees of wood.
Zombie trees. A zombie countryside. - parallels - thoughts appear to come
from nowhere and go nowhere. They have no substance or apparent duration. By
the time you're aware of them they are already over. Thoughts come and go and
if unconstrained can be any thing at all.
Blur / Orange - (recognition
of response) instant antipathy, inherent contradiction. The silent living dead
meet the noisy living mortals - parallels - when allowing ones thoughts to be
whatever they care to be and to observe them without involvement, somtimes
those thoughts are self contradictory and sometimes they are incomprehensible.
Understanding can deal with the self contradictory if it's not too complex but
the incomprehensible is really incomprehensible.
Blue / Green - (recognition
of awareness) sound in the silence is their only real weapon - parallels - self
contradictory thoughts sometimes involve themselves. Thoughts of present emergencies
especially. They refuse to be merely observed, but take an active part in
getting involved with the observer and then uninvolvement is lost. It's hard to
be uninvolved with the thought that the chocolate cookies in your refrigerator
are exploding even if you know you have no cookies of any kind there.
Blue / Red - (recognition of
conflict) they lose the battle. They expect to be put to death but how would
zombie gargoyles have any concept of death. They imprison them - parallels -
what if your unconstrained thoughts turn on you?
Blue / Blue - (recognition
of recognition) they are imprisoned but acquire wings from sleeping gargoyles -
parallels - self contradictory, incomprehensible thoughts put a stop to any
progress. Nothing happens or ever will. The only resolution is to use the
capabilities of self contradiction to contradict self contradiction.
Incomprehensibility brought back on incomprehensibility doesn't make it
comprehensible, but rather, supportative. The incomprehensible supports the
mind to use incomprehensibility to open new doors of perception, which is the
point of doing this stuff in the first place.
Blue / Yellow - (recognition
of limits / ends) they fly off to an escape hatch, light a fire and mess around
with some doors. One path leads away from it all - parallels - the resolution
of the limits of understanding and the examination of new ways of perception
leads to a new void.
