horizontal blogging


Dr. Barnett is doing a lot of online horizontal thinking these days which people accustomed to his more analytical news pieces find jarring or confusing; personally, with my interest in cognition, I like to see ideas gestate. Normally, we have to wait until a writer dies and the heirs let scholars (hopefully) edit and publish the thinker's drafts, notes and marginalia to gain insight into this process. Blogging it lets us all see the idea process in real time.

Shaping the global battlespace is the emphasis here which means the statesman, the salesman and the spy will have more longitudinal effect than the soldier. A good historical example of shaping the battlespace would be the "Present at the Creation" wise men after WWII whose work - Bretton Woods, IMF, World Bank, GATT ( todat the WTO), The Coal-Steel Community (today the EU), NATO, The Marshall Plan, the UN, Containment - won the Cold War and helped midwife globalization.

Today of course, it won't just be governments or "wise men" but entities like Google or Microsoft and -ultimately - emergent social networks using open source platforms, who will do a significant part of the shaping. They will also ride the major flows of globalization, taking advantage of the momentum of the environment in which they operate. This is the ultimate constructive goal of grand strategy - steering a civilizaton. [+]

AQ 503 = SHAPING THE GLOBAL BATTLESPACE = ALIGNMENT OF THE NINE PLANETS = CANTICUM EXCELLENTISSIMUM = COORDINATE TRANSFORMATION (M. Arndt) = HYPERSTITIONAL PROCEDURE = THE SPHERES ARE IN COMMOTION (She Blinded Me With Science, Thomas Dolby) = TRANSLATE ALPHABET TO DIGITS.

AQ 2331 = IF YOU DON’T BELIEVE IN THE POWER OF MONEY BY PARTICIPATING IN THE EXCHANGE OF THE COMMUNITY (LITURGY) THEN YOU HAVE EXCLUDED YOURSELF = THERE IS NOTHING THE COMMUNITY CAN DO ABOUT IT, AS IT WAS YOUR CHOICE AND SO IT IS NOT THE FAULT OF THE COMMUNITY THAT YOU SUFFER FOR IT (The Infantile Belief in Money, Anthony Paul Smith) [+].

these are the last two sentences from this final paragraph here. 2331 + 2331 = 4662, 7 x 666 = 4662.


Daniel 3:1 Nebuchadnezzar (may Nebo protect the crown) the king made an image of gold, whose height was threescore cubits, and the breadth thereof six cubits: he set it up in the plain of Dura, in the province of Babylon.

Number in Scripture: : Part II: Its Spiritual Significance : Six Hundred and Sixty Six : THERE ARE THREE MEN : E.W. Bullinger : 2. NEBUCHADNEZZAR, whose "image" which he set up,** was 60 cubits high and 6 cubits broad (Dan 3:1), and which was worshipped when the music was heard from 6 specified instruments,***

*** The numerical value (by gematria) of the words in Daniel 3:1, which describe the setting up of this image is 4662. The very figures are significant, but still more so are the factors of this number. 4662 = 7 x 666.

HEB 4663 = NBVKDNTzR MLKA OBD TzLM DY-DHB RVMH AMYN ShThYN PThYH AMYN ShTh AQYMH BBQOTh DVRA BMDYNTh BBL (Daniel 3:1; Ben Asher Hebrew Text).

minus (A)leph = 4662. in AQ = 1664, no values but minus (A)leph:

AQ 1654 = NBVKDNTzR MLK OBD TzLM DY-DHB RVMH AMYN ShThYN PThYH AMYN ShTh AQYMH BBQOTh DVRA BMDYNTh BBL (Daniel 3:1; Ben Asher Hebrew Text) = FOR ALL THAT IS, WHAT IS IT BUT A MANIFESTATION, THAT IS, A PART, THAT IS, A FALSEHOOD, OF THAT WHICH IS NOT? (The Book of Lies, THE GLOW-WORM).

AQ 618 = CRY HAVOC AND LET SLIP THE DOGS OF WAR [+] = BEING TOUCHED BY HIS NOODLY APPENDAGE = THE TENURE OF KINGS AND MAGISTRATES [+].

AQ 627 = CRY SOKAL, AND LET SLIP THE DOGS OF WAR! = A BEER OR TWO AND A HAMBURGER ON THE CHEAP (Woodlawn Tap) = ACQUISITION OF A HIGH ELECTRICAL CHARGE (Fer de Lance, Tom Bearden) = ARNOLD SCHONBERG, VERKLARTE NACHT OP. 4 (David Sneek, The Weblog) = COMMODITIES LEAP THE SPECIES BARRIER (CCRU) = GOOD THOUGHTS, GOOD WORDS, GOOD DEEDS = SERGIO MENDES & BRASIL '66 GREATEST HITS = THE TAO AND TEH OF CHINESE PHILOSOPHY (Commentaries of AL, Motta :: The theogony of our Law is entirely scientific: Nuit is Matter, Hadit is Motion, in their full physical sense. They are the Tao and Teh of Chinese Philosophy; or, to put it very simply, the Noun and Verb in grammar. Our central Truth—beyond other philosophies—is that these two infinities cannot exist apart) = WITHOUT ANY MODIFYING INFLUENCES (Ten of Wands ~ Oppression).

after watching Memoirs of a Geisha previous sunday (07-Oct) pull Four of Wands ~ Completion.

brain on Nichiren overload [+][+]. best i could find online describing Tanabe's tariki formulation : "....Tanabe's philosophy of metanoetics follows the True Pure Land Buddhism of Shinran in focussing upon the aspect of genso, 'returning to' this world from the Pure Land". aware of Pure Land from Nichiren's writings, but never heard of Shinran. decided to focus on what Nichiren wrote about tariki & found Nichiren Shõnin’s View of Humanity by Asai Endo, from Japanese Journal of Religious Studies (Fall 1999 edition devoted to Nichiren; previously read Christina Naylor's Nichiren, imperialism, and the peace movement; list). Endo's essay has a section called Self-Power and Other Power & quotes from Urabon gosho (something about wisteria). Shinran (1173-1262) & Nichiren (1222-1282) lived during Kamakura period & New Buddhism advent in Japan (What is Kamakura New Buddhism?, PDF); however, while Nichiren castigates Pure Land & nembutsu he doesn't mention Shinran anywhere in the gosho.

yesterday dig out The Major Writings of Nichiren Daishonin (vol #7) M gave me when i graduated (1994!). seriously, the book is pristine — it's been in storage two years. (i stopped practicing in 1994). pull Atu XVII Star & decide to open at page 171, which begins, By way of analogy. it's the Urabon gosho, but seeing wisteria realize i've read this before & check above. Nichiren wrote another gosho, The Origin of the Urabon, The Festival of the Dead, Festival of Lanterns, or Bon Festival.
