I am looking for people to dialogue with who are not dominated by the rational objective blueprint or paradigm. The intuitive perception entails perceiving self and other as intimately interconnected ... a part of me is in you and a part of you is in me..., while the rational perceives self and other as separate and disconnected in a linear cause and effect relationship. Additionally, the interconnection goes beyond the seen and unseen and is experienced at all levels of sensory connection, including the psychic or intuitive.
In my work to understand how we think and relate and how to change self, others, or both; I discovered (mostly through dreams) that there are essentially two primary world views, which are directly linked with our dominant logic. These are rational objective and intuitive. While each of us embraces both, we tend to be dominated by the rational objective in today's global society. The intuitive tends to be primarily of most (but not all) indigenous societies or peoples. From a rational dominated blueprint (individual or collective) the intuitive tends to be held, at best, as magic and idealistic, but not as a logical framework from which to build a society.
Our logical relationship perceptions form a blueprint (symbols, beliefs, definitions, rules, values, emotions, feelings, and especially our primary logic) regarding both our self and of other (human and non-human) and essentially for how we think and relate, that is, how we behave in relationship. Looking at how we behave in terms of relationship perceptions joins with and goes beyond pragmatics of human communication and is grounded in a definition of reality as consciousness interacting with consciousness, at every level of existence, according to individual and collective uniqueness as an ongoing here and now co-creative process. Wow! Is that a mouthful! It took me 25 years to develop that definition of reality.
So, what do you think?
