Radical Ideas

(cheerful, high voice) Wanna hear about my tourist travels to D.C. with my kids and look at my vacation pictures of monuments?  NOT… (hey, that may arrive here soon enough) …

Instead —

Below is a list of radical ideas.  Define your terms LePell –

Radical  Idea – a notion that bends far from conventional thought, perhaps beyond or below our ability to assess its truth or value at this point in time.  It’s radical – it’s an outlier, an outsider… like some of us…

Conventional thought –passed on information or interpretation, not already discovered or posited, or “proven.”…

15 Radical  Ideas for the day:  (not in any particular order…for the moment).    Simplified so you can breeze through them … for the moment.

  1. The wind carries the spirits of those who have passed on to the next dimension (who are dead, in other words). We can’t “hear” their voices, per se, but we can feel their presence, if we are open to it.
  2. Thought is matter.
  3. One’s essence, one’s spirit perhaps, lives in the cells of our organism.   It is alive in the fluids that drench our insides, rising and falling with the pulsation of the heart, the expansion and contraction of the muscles, the core rhythms of our beings.
  4. We are multiple.
  5. Two opposing things can exist at once. Simultaneous Truths.  Our world, our minds, are not binary.
  6. Sound is pain. Pain is sound.
  7. Dreams are metaphors/messages from the god inside of us. All dreams are “true.”
  8. All words are onomatopaiatic, springing from human experience.
  9. Nothing exists, except experience.
  10. Everything we learn, we already know – it gets released, not discovered.
  11. Time is an illusion. Constructed for efficiency and order.
  12. All markets are driven by the concept of deficiency, of insecurity, of want.
  13. The internet WILL become our collective consciousness – individuality will be erased. (unless we resist)
  14. Moderation is balance. Being off balance drives human invention and activity, striving for equilibrium, just like our cells.
  15. Stephen Hawking was wrong. About god.

 

More to come…

    Oh my goodness. Where can I even begin? Each of these “radical” ideas have at some point (as far back as Hereclitus or the Stoics) been common thought. In general, I don’t care for notions that compare things to “normal.” Why? Because I don’t care or believe in the concept of “normal.” For example, does anyone feel “normal” about our president. I know of not one person who doesn’t LOVE him or HATE him. I will not rail here (or derail there). Let’s take a little peek at the word “radical.” In fact, let’s get far away to visit a little world known as Science. Radical can mean growing from the root or base as in radical leaves. In mathematics (maths), radical actually means root (as in radical three or the square “root” of three. In surgery it means “all, but especially the “root,” as in radical mastectomy. What I am noticing is that the critical connection is the outgrowth from the base or root. These 15 “radical ideas” are also an outgrowth from a root. Oh,oh,oh but what might that root be? It is buried in and soaking in our brains’ never ending search (hero’s quest) for expanations and answers to the gnawing questions about the nature of our universe (or maybe it’s only our bedroom–ah, but I digress).

    what’s not to love about this response? You sure you don’t have your own pages for me to peruse? I especially appreciate the deep drilling of the word “root?” get it? drilling? ironic in some way, because I suggest that “radical” is “outside” when in fact it is at the center… oh oh oh… language.
