Source Code

Filed under: General — m759 @ 1:00 PM

See a search for Bogus Source in this journal.

That search yields a quotation from poet Wallace Stevens,
whose birthday is today —

"The poet finds that as between these two sources:
the imagination and reality, the imagination is false,
whatever else may be said of it, and reality is true;
and being concerned that poetry should be a thing
of vital and virile importance, he commits himself to
reality, which then becomes his inescapable and
ever-present difficulty and innamorata."

The Source

Filed under: General — m759 @ 5:55 PM

Bogus religion from a bogus "research lab" —

Journal of Scientific Exploration,
Vol. 18, No. 4 (2004), pp. 547-570
"Sensors, Filters, and the Source of Reality"
Robert G. Jahn and Brenda J. Dunne

Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research
Princeton University 
D-334 Engineering Quadrangle
School of Engineering/Applied Science

"… Consequently, the inferred models of reality are limited to those substances, processes, and sources of information that constitute conventional contemporary science.

In this paper we ally ourselves with the sharply contrary position that there exists a much deeper and more extensive source of reality, which is largely insulated from direct human experience, representation, or even comprehension. It is a domain that has long been posited and contemplated by metaphysicians and theologians, Jungian and Jamesian psychologists, philosophers of science, and a few contemporary progressive theoretical physicists, all struggling to grasp and to represent its essence and its function. A variety of provincial labels have been applied, such as 'Tao,' 'Qi,' 'prana,' 'void,' 'Akashic record,' 'Unus Mundi,' 'unknowable substratum,' 'terra incognita,' 'archetypal field,' 'hidden order,' 'aboriginal sensible muchness,' 'implicate order,' 'zero-point vacuum,' 'ontic (or ontological) level,' 'undivided timeless primordial reality,' among many others, none of which fully captures the sublimely elusive nature of this domain. In earlier papers we called it the 'subliminal seed regime,' (2,3) but for our present purposes we shall henceforth refer to it simply as the 'Source.' "*

Rather, they represent different perspectives on the same basic search, and hence should be respected as collectively complementary. Where they reinforce one another, or display common features, this may indicate some degree of basic insight. Where they disagree on details, testable hypotheses may present themselves.

Resisting the Bogus

Filed under: General — m759 @ 12:00 PM

From remarks by Wallace Stevens featured in recent Log24 posts:

"The poet finds that as between these two sources: the imagination and reality, the imagination is false, whatever else may be said of it, and reality is true; and being concerned that poetry should be a thing of vital and virile importance, he commits himself to reality, which then becomes his inescapable and ever-present difficulty and innamorata. In any event, he has lost nothing; for the imagination, while it might have led him to purities beyond definition, never yet progressed except by particulars. Having gained the world, the imaginative remains available to him in respect to all the particulars of the world. Instead of having lost anything, he has gained a sense of direction and a certainty of understanding. He has strengthened himself to resist the bogus."
