A Job Title Long Overdue

loooooooooong-uhh         overdue


       I remember it well, a good friend of mine was giving me acting advice for an upcoming performance. "For a lot of people, their challenge is to find something that they love to do. Yours... is  going to be choosing something. " I don't believe it was at that moment where I made the decision to try to do everything I loved for my career, but years down the road when I was about to graduate from college, those words sifted through my busy thoughts as I realized something large and subtle about the society and culture that I grew up in.  A lot of people receive an education that communicates the following: "Here are your options. Choose". However this is not the way that several of us function in reality. Our talents are varied and nuanced. But more than the stratification of the abilities that make us each unique people, it's evident that there is a connection between these capabilities. The skillsets we are born with and those which we acquire inform each other. They grow together and there exists a symmetry in principals, form, and technique - might I dare say - between them all. I'mma ("I am going to" for the faint of heart) demonstrate this connectedness to the best of my abilities.

     This is how things have their being around us: there is event, and there is consequence. Luckily in the universe I live in, the consequence is perpetually connected to the nature of events so that similar circumstances will create similar results. For us humans, us cool cats we lol, we construct from this natural occurrence the frameworks for what we would call expectation and order. Fire always burns you, and winter follows fall. Because of a perceived functionality, we can construct wisdom and choices: 

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 

    Wisdom is a creation because it is based on functionality. Functionality is subjective because it is based on goals. Goals are a creation because they are founded on the will of a self-counsous entity. 

     Though these statements do not require them to be true, the validity of them based in simple facts is also demonstrated in religious texts. For example, christians need look no further than Proverbs 8:22. Creation above is used pathologically in a relgious sense, but the word itsself is sound in a religious and non context. Humans create goals and so wisdom is created. Entering again into a religious context, especially a christian one, see Ecclesiastes 9:10. The writer, taken to be an educated individual, makes a sound argument that does not require religion; even though it does appear in a religious context. It is based on the thoeretical observation that when you die, if you have no interpretation of self, no consiousness, then you have no goals, and if you have no goals you have no wisdom. 


   It is important to note that wisdom generated by the impetus of a goal is not entirely subjective, because if it does not yield the desired end, then it is not within that circumstance, wisdom. 


Perhaps this is why, in the broader sense, that society works to refine its ethics, and requires a consolidation of them. It is a noble goal to have a functional society, but with different goals, functionality appears different to different people. Because of this, there exists perhaps no truly public wisdom. 


Maybe you’re thinking, "Isn't there order to things without wisdom or don't things work"? The answer is no


There is order, but it is not order as the subjective interpretation of a system being functional according to your standards or your goals*, but it is order as process. Meaning: when A happened B happened. The result is not the consequence of a will, but the consequence of a process. and because the process produces a defined result, if that process is undergone again it will produce that result again. The reproducability of results in the observable world creates the human perception of fufilled expectation, which more or less results in the human observation known as order. Because the processes are repeated, humans see not only order, but ORDER or functionality. But in dry terms, a process produces a result. 


The remaining question is how the same processes will reproduce the same results, because they do. When speaking of process, I’m referring to things that happen, the order they happen in, and the circumstances under which they happen. This reproducibility of results in Nature, humans existing therein and belonging intrinsically thereto, is where the concept of Law is derived from, that is, not in a legal since but in natural sense. However an observation of human activities will tell you that legal law is in essence the enforcement of an outcome based upon processes and things that happen. But without humans will these legal outcomes do not go into effect.... I have to continue and clean this up later... There is too much more to much more.

----We'll get back to what this has to do with doing several different things lol
