interact with others over our prior semiotic production,
adding and modifying until our exchanges show evidence
of adequate mutual comprehension –
of patterns that cannot be consciously experienced in a moment, and
CANNOT BE VISUALIZED.

We humans are good at creating nodes in a vast communication network. We are poor at perceiving patterns in this “flow” and
find it almost impossible to properly share these patterns
(with mutual comprehension).

Actually we are masters at intuiting patterns of the complexity,
of what we worked with in our tribal times, a hard-wired competency. With the creation/development of written languages
and now digital representations, we have accomplished much.
But we still lack minimum competencies for creating and maintaining viable/sustainable social/societal systems.
We blame our problems on imagined failings of others and fail, ourselves, to recognize our difficulties are SYSTEMIC,
with no persons or peoples to be blamed.

Of all the knowledge nodes in our semfield (think Internet),
each human has actually experienced but an infinitesimal fraction, and comprehended and integrated much less.

We confabulate our very limited knowledge to experiencing
believable whole “wrlds”, our personal realities –
which we act within as if they are good approximations
of a common objective reality ( one world).
Tonight I viewed about 10 minutes of the current Lou Dobbs Tonight on FOX cable. I discovered him (he was once on CNN) on FOX a few weeks ago and am recording him daily; sampling periodically. I view Dobbs as the mirror of CNN, from the far, far right. He is polite, reasonable, with an air of authenticity. Tonight he played the very same video clips of Susan Rice as did MSNBC. The commentary was radically different – but also, in other ways, very similar. What Dobbs considered facts, MSNBC viewed as lies – and vice versa. I highly recommend periodic dives into Dobbs. For those who only view Dobbs, or who only view MSNBC, there is no reason to doubt the reality being reported. I am not proposing objective equivalence, but this should demonstrate that the battle is between our minds/wrlds and not what might be happening in “objective reality”. It is HERE about which I claim we humans really don’t comprehend “who we are”.

The consequence of the emergence of
THE TRUMP PHENOMENON on our scene,
has been a continuing and accelerating FRAGMENTATION
of any “coherence” in “consensual reality”.

I fear this will not be repeat of historical crises,
where we can expect eventual “recovery to norms”.
Our advancing technology and other factors
may have pushed us beyond thresholds.
We must view this in the original sense of CRISIS,
a mix of Opportunity and Danger.
Which it becomes will be up to us.

Imagine what aliens visiting from distant star systems,
or aborigines in the Amazon with Internet access,
might “make” of the ALL the conflicting reports
generated by 21st Century humans.

IF they could analyze ALL the reports
(the whole human semfield),
could they construct an “objective model” of Humankind
with very high probability of being accurate?
Maybe, and maybe not.

I speculate on the possibility that our “collective reality”
doesn’t fit our preconceptions of an “objective reality”.
We might discover a “societal weirdness”
for the unobservable-but-hypothesized societal subsystems,

While the vast majority, necessarily, continue
– in their own, personally competent (given their wrlds) ways –
a few need to scout and prepare as pathfinders
a viable route out of our Crisis-of-Crises.

Our primary motivation must be positive enthusiasm
for actualizing the awesome potentials of humankind,
in creating a continuously improving process
that doesn’t fixate on constructing a stable STATE
(of momentary existence).

LARRY OPENS UP A WORD PROCESSING WINDOW
AND NUET SOON TAKES OVER.
I need to LEARN TO do this in a blog
(a different blog from Nuets Nodes),
putting the realtime production of nuet into the “cloud”.

What actually is the physical form of the internet “cloud”?
What many square miles of massive server sites exist
(some in the Arctic, for cooling)?
How are they distributed
among different nations and blocks of nations?
How much is distributed in storage
within vast networks of business and personal computers?
