Rationality and Imagination

Thoughts On A Obscure Cosmology: The Imaging of Imagination

The Predictability of Mechanics: An Upside Down Valuation of Hierarchies

Does objectivity exist in relation to the UFO problem? Is it measurable as a consequence?
If it is measurable are we using the wrong tools to discern the root of it's manifestations in all their varieties?

So much of what I have written on the relationship between consciousness and the anomalous has been focused on the measurable and I was recently reflecting on this in terms of the fact there is more than one context to all of this and I am as much of a  product of current cosmologies as anyone else in the sense that historically the meaning and context of cosmology as it is currently practiced and how it was centuries ago is a decidedly different affair. 

There is a decidedly existentialist thread in current theory whereas formerly it enfolded individual or the general human experience into theories.

In many posts I have referred to quantum theory and when I was mulling over the context of these posts, I was struck that quantum mechanics is well..mechanical in the sense that it seeks predictability as much as Newtonian principles. With this in mind, the thought occurred to me that perhaps all of this emphasis on rational predictability may be an upside down view of how the situation ( ours in particular)  is framed. 

Is the point of the universe predictability? This is what we seek but perhaps what we seek is illusionary.

The more I focused on this question, the more apparent  was that this matter has been made impossible to entangle due to the vicissitudes of language whether it is written in phrases or mathematically. All of our societal structures are based on predictability. Our languages are based on predictable stereotypes. Pattern recognition requires a stable foundation does it not?

So what if human nature has nothing to do with how the universe operates?

Perhaps this is an example of anthropomorphism run amuck.

An important distinction occurred to me.

We measure realities by rationality and experience the realities by imagination.

The message in the case of one anomaly, that of UFO's strikes this writer as a prime example of this situation. It may be a message that you cannot measure the nature of what is being disclosed, that the universe is a mirror of the imagination and rationality is a fool's errand when it comes to the stuff of a dream and the dreamer that has both physicality and yet is incommensurable, much like ourselves. The approach may be a cosmology foreign to us.

This flux through the locus of a chimera within the anomalous...... in terms of subsisting frameworks of the observer as each , (imagination and rationality ) serve  a seemingly paradoxical relationship of contradictory languages that lodge the subject as a deconstructive agent toward any reconciliation of the two rather than expressing the two as a coherent dynamic. We mistake the tools of measurement by rationality for realities that surround us that are imaginative. The suggestibility potential of any environment underlines this state, or station of organisation.

Perhaps we can call this self hypnosis by measurement, an architecture that does not match experiential consciousness, especially if consciousness extends beyond ourselves that refuses to be set.

“Have you guessed the riddle yet?” the Hatter said, turning to Alice again.
“No, I give it up,” Alice replied: “What’s the answer?”
“I haven’t the slightest idea,” said the Hatter”

No Right Angles In Natural Forms

If you have been in this neighborhood long enough, you already know that the craft and the occupants reported by witnesses come in every conceivable shape, size and form. This may be a clue in of itself that has larger implications than what is simply reported in a astonishing catalog of mirrored conceptual chimeras that reside neither here or there but stand as a sort of indicator, a message that we may have our hierarchy of  valuations between imagining and rationality upside down.

Our natural state is bewildered anxiety if taken away from the bar located at the tavern of distractedly purposeful intoxication. You can determine this for yourself just by looking who is falling off a bar stool while in the thrall of increasingly and quietly desperate entertainments..that drown out  doubt. Our species comes to mind...something is eluding us as we sink into a stupor. The more we apply this architecture of mistaking measurements with right angles, the deeper into a pit we descend that is knocking at the door at 3am trying to inform us that our house is on fire...Nonetheless...

Measurement As A Process of Imagination

 I suspect the mind is a non local agent that has nothing to do with rationality and the physical brain is a local lens that is constantly measuring. Without imagination, we would cease to be functional. We would not be conscious by missing a required and key binding agent of translation, and of course this would also mean that measurement is subservient to imagination, therefore it is true that rationality is based on the imaginative process that creates the contingent nature of forms as intermediaries,whether it is math or language...  that the intermediaries have no existence in of themselves without the imaging process of imagination.

An Illusion of Objectivity: Imagining Ourselves As A Measurement That Creates Experiential Realms

The lesser death of sleep and the greater death of physical death itself and what is between them is the creation of a container that colors what could be called a clear, colorless medium without scent by imagination. The loss of the container perhaps releases what has been embryonic as a distinction of what is necessary for the nature of the exercise which is disclosure.

There seems to be a requirement of disclosure of endless possibilities in order for them to be existent, the requirement of imagination in a dream wherein we create a container ( as in the observer effect) that , in turn, creates reality as an individuated exercise that serves in of itself, as a measurement as a mirror or witness to a process of disclosure by interpenetration. One hand washes the other.The scope of our mirroring or serving in mediumship  within imagination is a distinction within infinite distinctions of a disclosure that is ceaseless without the confines of space time. We imagine ourselves to be what we are.

Yet none of this has anything to do with rationality. Perhaps no two individuals see the possible alike and this is more pronounced when the container is removed from imagined "heaven" or delimited environment of an observer effect that feeds equally on itself in a dream that dwarfs the dreams within the lesser death of sleep.

“But I don’t want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.
"Oh, you can’t help that," said the Cat: "we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad."
"How do you know I’m mad?" said Alice.
"You must be," said the Cat, or you wouldn’t have come here.”

Lately, it seems to me the drop within a river does not vanish when it reaches the sea when considering more than one state we occupy at this station or state, and that differentiation is expansive rather than contracting. As far as I know nothing seems to be shrinking unless we apply the rationality of measurement as a navigational behaviorism as the natural world shrinks around us due to this...upside down determinism.
