Divided attention – now we can divide our attention without any organic integration among them, and they are often of things themselves that are divided. There can also be undivided attention of a still divided thing. What we need is an organic integration of the divided things in the mind, with the synthesis of imagination, rather than the divisionary logic of reason.
Even when we can give our undivided attention, it is most often about something divided and schematized/schematizing.

Description: beyond representative democracy
beyond representative democracy – why do we need to aggregate ourselves into these systems of large interactions? Why can't we just do things, and then as we do them, if there are those that don't like the actions we undertake, they can undertake other ones. Rather than all voting, can't we all write articles, talk, cohort, and change one another, and do it to no end? We aren't doing all this to convince of one person to represent us. Some of the assumptions of representative democracy are that there are individuals, and there are individuals that can represent the needs of others.

Description: how reified minds can go deeper
there are systems in a person's head that they could have one exclusive system in one part of their brain, and another in another part of their brain, that they move to each part as they are approaching new things – this is like the reified mind. Then there are people that have a simple one system set in their minds rather than a few simple systems, are still a reified mind in a degreed fashion, but still somewhat distinct from this first one. The way that minds can learn things that contradict, but not actually see the variants in between them and create a more subtle difference and go to deeper levels, is that they'll have seperate parts of their brain. One could have their science part, their math part, as all seperate and accessed exclusively. So not using the same parts, energy isn't flowing through the same parts, there is also the mind that can learn these things and integrate them with the whole, so that it creates a square circled (type of mind)... all these crazy subtle differences to where it's still a whole person. And so none of the methodologies are seperate, they all work with one another. This person will generally be more skeptical of systems because they'll have their own more subtle and subtley devised view for the world.

Description: reification can purge out memories of humanity
because people are dynamic enough to change their brain and change the way the matter is related, and thus their experience, and their memories-- Because they do that, it means that reification can set in and actually purge out everything else there was. Or a reified type system can erode away. And so there can be said to be last inches of humanity, and last instances ethical considerations remaining in a widespread way. And so these can always be purged. People don't even have that left.

being in the age of the exact copy is indicative of how much leveling (to a particular level, such as atomic or molar) there has been, that we have brought things to such a simple level, rather than a flow of smooth between levels. We have made things that simple that we can actually replicate them exactly. It is indeed a poor story for differenation.

Description: multiple personality disorder and reification
multiple personality disorder – or what explains not being able to access different parts of the brain, is that there is such deep schisms in the brain between areas that one can't even
there are such thick reified barriers, that when time exists for one, it just stops for the others (because they are not in motion). If you could look at a reified person's brain in their different states, you would see this (and rather than quadrants, they could be intertwined, but various more heavily connected parts would be a personality, and then their loose and infrequent connections with other parts. These different areas all have their own place for memory, their own functioning system. And so when a different personality takes over, the other ones are shut down—their is no time for them, they are stagnant—and so thats why they can't be accessed by the new one, because they are so cut off.

the reason that time can go slower is that so much emotion is going on (perhaps emotion oscilliates a lot, from an optomistic to a pessimistic, in a matter of seconds). Emotion is what I have until sort of left out, or not taken fully into account, but it has a huge experiential quality. And perhaps emotions aren't possible to put on a continuum or even in a plane or sphere of possibile degrees of difference, but they themselves are just different, and not invertible.
Perhaps emotion is subsumed under phenomenology and is one type of experience

Description: analytics (gatekeepers) attacks on hegel
if it is called a reading at all, it'll be called a bad reading. And indeed it does challenge their reading and so to them it is bad and must be disarmed. But as it might be contentfully weak, which I agree it might, it challenges the form that keeps static and imprisoned hegel. The form to which they are the guards, to which they are making themselves. And so this can be seen as an contentual attack to disentigrate forms, and the contradiction that might exist within hegelian scholarship, which is that hegel has a viral (in a good sense) and explosive philosophy, that is being kept bottled up and put on display, but the display is through a looking glass that inevitably makes it 2 dimensional and a reified eternality. The interaction and development that hegel would have loved so much, even if it so happened that it didn't happen in exactly the dialectical way he tried to elaborate, is stifled by the gatekeepers.
title for my discussion about materially understanding everything - “land, peace, and bread” and how peace doesn't happen b/c there is finite land and bread, but that isn't inherent of course, it is a question of organization. But now to look at not what law means, but what it does, what private property does to restrict movement. It acts on the ideological level primarily, but acts in the external to human bodies level as well.

trance essay – make sure to mention james holden's nothings (and horizons) – nothing is doing with language, showing it as superficial but it shows how important voice or intention, but its almost better when its not saying anything
trance actually creates more points of connectivity to itself and it connects to more things, because its so dynamic, and it actually increases the level of conscious being that we are, rather than just having our energies refocus on something more in depth and immanent and less static, maybe it actually produces, in a sense, more energy
morphing mirrors, michael solex, ultra vibe, the andain remixes

minuturization – i grew up with legos, doing small differentiations rather than simple differentiations at larger levels, and this gave me a greater appreciation of the immanence of things. You can appreciate small immanent things from which you can get the same phenomenological experience as if you see them in the large, and so there is little point in doing too many large things if it is unnecessary. In this respect there is a lot to learn from children and what they play with, and that when we grow up, we feel the need to move big things, but its not all together clear that this is progressive or necessary.

Description: a dynamic mind into simple things
when someone puts their dynamic mind into a more simple method of doing things, like into a rational system, they are derailing their energies from doing more dynamic things, because they are devoted to being in this simple system. But there is a simple logic that completes the system and can make it effectively closed so they can't put their energies in it anymore and must put it other places. This completing of the equation of the simple system, and providing simply the words, serves as adequate phenomenological experience on the part of the imprisoned mind to effectively block in a big way any further interaction with simple logical system, which means that at least that system is finished. In other words, one was talked into math, rather than dynamically experienced into it, and then they just happened to devote and channel everything into that math system. So just like they were talked into math, they can be talked out of it, as the talking can effectively block any further interaction with the dumb logic, leaving it there as an impenetrable thing in the person's brain, that can be interacted with anew and turned into something much more subtle and without the leveling that was apparent in the matter in its simple stage.
