Does writing nurture thought?
The soul is free when it is brought up, claim Eckhart and Goethe. I guess that their upbringing also went through the naming process (Adam’s first task).
Genesis of Anima
As Weininger stated, we came to this world as bisexual. The fetus, in its initial form, contains the potency of both principles. During development, one principle grows cumulatively, and the other remains only as infinite potency. This infinite potency is Anima (Animus).
Given our perceptual possibilities, Anima is not presented (only) as infinite potency, because we cannot just apperceive it, but it is also presented as what we lack – the concrete opposition of our set.
Dream of meaning:
In a dream, God spoke to me. The dream was empty, without any happening. Just a voice saying one sentence:
“The meaning of meaning is not in meaning but in the balance of form”
The dream is, among other definitions, a direct reference to Bertrand Russell’s Binegation.
- If two sets on opposite sides are balanced, the structure relation that remains between them is the final truth – the abbreviation of the logical concept.
The pattern of binegation, which I read today in many external and internal phenomena, opened its universal law to me when I began to seek it in Nature. The epiphanic moment was the discovery and rediscovery of the tree. Trees as an ideal visual representation of binegation. Trees as logical images. Trees as an ethical mechanism.
Crown – an exterior set, (many)
Tree – relation, (one)
Root – internal set (many)
Tree (as imago), communicates ethics
Crowns produce fruit, leaves, oxygen etc. The outer set is ultimately altruistic. It only gives in relation to God (Helios). The tree, or structure relation, is what we see (human perspective). The tree is One constituent that by its number and appearance represents the fractal unit of the remainder. The root, or inner set, is that which nourishes, collects, absorbs from the Earth, and later translates through relation to the outer set. The relation is the truth of the tree. One principle – One God. The relation (tree), is archetypal in relation to the branches. The tree is a principle and a prototype. The tree is a necessary, ontologically complete, pattern that elaborates its story through two contrasting sets.
The root and the crown are visual representations of Development and Maturation.
In our imagination, the tree is always in the balance of the crown and the roots, but this is mostly not the case. The Ethics of the Tree communicates differently. The canopy is larger than the Root. Giving is more branching than collecting. The principle of production (ref: Theory of Novum – Terence McKenna) is more dominant than the principle of collection. The principle of maturation is more than the principle of development.
