In the Shadow of the Bronze Soldier

Some have said that Talos 1 was son of Cres and father of Hephaestus. But others affirm that he was a creature made of bronze, given by Zeus to Europa, or by Hephaestus to Minos 2, to be the warder of Crete; and whereas some have asserted that he was a brazen man, others have said that he was a bull. Talos 1, yet others affirm, was the last of a generation of men of bronze, sprung from the ash-trees. —Talos, Greek Mythology Link

People break down into two groups when the experience something lucky. Group number one sees it as more than luck, more than coincidence. They see it as a sign, evidence, that there is someone up there, watching out for them. Group number two sees it as just pure luck. Just a happy turn of chance. I'm sure the people in Group number two are looking at those fourteen lights in a very suspicious way. For them, the situation isn't fifty-fifty. Could be bad, could be good. But deep down, they feel that whatever happens, they're on their own. And that fills them with fear. Yeah, there are those people. But there's a whole lot of people in the Group number one. When they see those fourteen lights, they're looking at a miracle. And deep down, they feel that whatever's going to happen, there will be someone there to help them. And that fills them with hope. See what you have to ask yourself is what kind of person are you? Are you the kind that sees signs, sees miracles? Or do you believe that people just get lucky? Or, look at the question this way: Is it possible that there are no coincidences?

AQ 1051 = OUR FRIENDS THINK WE'RE OPPOSITES FALLING IN AND OUT OF LOVE = CENTRAL CONDITION FOR THE HEGEMONY OF WISDOM OVER PLEASURE (In my last post on this subject, we ended with the knots and nets of necessity: once you grant that the path of the wise man and the path of the fool are separate paths, you have granted the central condition for the hegemony of wisdom over pleasure – the ascetic ideology. That ideology is not annulled by asserting the hegemony of pleasure over wisdom, however – such is the primitive sense of epicurean materialism, as Lukacs understands it - since wisdom and pleasure, the wise man and the fool, are still kept at a distance from one another. However, there is a moment in that reversal that does not inevitably lead to AQ-330 EMBOURGEOISEMENT, or to the reign of happiness triumphant, the horror that currently bestrides our globe. Or at least that has been my hypothesis – embodied in a life in which, as hypotheses go, it has been rudely and roundly confuted by circumstances. Nevertheless, LI is a stubborn cunt) = DILIGENT EXTRAPOLATIONS RESULTED IN THE UNKNOWABLE…SOON = I AM THE HOLY SPLENDOR OF THE IMAGINATION.

AQ 351 = TRANSITION MANAGER = A THOUSAND PLATEAUS = DESCRIBE THE EMOTION = SHRI BAGALAMUKHI DEVI (AQ-90 ABYZ, AQ-185 BAGALAMUKHI, AQ-228 CRANE-HEADED ONE, AQ-288 THE CRANE-HEADED ONE, AQ-389 SECOND NIGHT OF COURAGE) = SUHAIL OF THE SOUTH (AQ-286 AL SUHAIL AL WAZN) = THE AMERICAN ANALYST = THE CONCEPT OF AMERICA = THE MARKETING ETHOS = THUS SAITH THE LORD.

Transition management is required at specific historical moments. We're anticipating a kind of change that is organic and whole, not mechanical and fragmented. The opportunities for transformation are rarely created. Instead, they are discovered. Transformation is an emergent property of a complex system and is usually well underway before its subsystems are aware of what's happening. The person who "creates" a transformation, is really the one who identifies and frames it. So the transition manager—all of us really—are on the lookout constantly for the opportunity to discover a state change in progress. When we discover one, we have to paddle with the energy, but we can still have a lot of influence over how the boat moves in the stream.Analysis: The Transition Manager's Creed ~ MG Taylor Corporation
