A valiant effort in philosophy may leave any wise man wondering how Tesla could actually DO what he did and conceive the unified force field while constantly making all his machines and inventions that reflect the real knowledge of fields and layers thereof (AC current, the radio, neon lights, wireless power transmission etc.). That is not meant to demean philosophy as much as it is to prepare you to go beyond what any written philosophy has achieved. In this next quote Heidegger, seems to explain how the essence of such energy is hidden by nature herself. That does confront my dismay and allow me to suggest the research did not include the reality we have de-constructed herein. It makes me think he caught the virus of academic denial of past civilizations and great human development. Remember nature and Dasein exists beyond the framework of this earth. Nature has essences available to conceive just as Tesla and numerous others have demonstrated. Unfortunately the demonstration is often spiritual or what is dubbed metaphysical. It would have been advisable for him to read the writings of his countrymen, Einstein, Heisenberg and Schrödinger rather than going back into a Dark Age of intolerance that included life-threats against any who actually questions the prevailing paradigm which had God as unknowable. In so doing his exploration did he fall into the trap set to give easy answers rather than actually develop usable knowledge?

"The modern physical theory of nature prepares the way not simply for technology but for the essence of modern technology. For such gathering together, which challenges man to reveal by way of ordering, already holds sway in physics. But in it that gathering does not yet come expressly to the fore. Modern physics is the herald of enframing, a herald whose origin is still unknown. The essence of modern technology has for a long time been concealed, even where power machinery has been invented, where electrical technology is in full swing, and where atomic technology is well underway.
All coming to presence, not only modern technology, keeps itself everywhere concealed to the last. Nevertheless, it remains, with respect to its holding sway, that which precedes all: the earliest. The Greek thinkers already knew of this when they said: That which is earlier with regard to its rise into dominance becomes manifest to us men only later. That which is primally early shows itself only ultimately to men. Therefore, in the realm of thinking, a painstaking effort to think through still more primally what was primally thought is not the absurd wish to revive what is past, but rather the sober readiness to be astounded before the coming of the dawn.” (15)

And yes, he has a metaphysical sense of awe that allows him to appreciate Heisenberg's uncertainty but we wonder why it needs be hidden in some essence that essentially seems 'occult' (hidden) while the status quo has its definable standards of observable reality. Maybe there was a fundamental change in his thinking that caused him to not render his opinion on the "turning" of Being as it relates to Time. If we are to give more credit than may be due, perhaps he reached the point where he actually knew Intelligent Design exists: and that all energy does function according to harmonic purpose and useful creative potentials that can precede the mundane delineation of their reality. His thoughts lead to an end of the usefulness of philosophy and the submission to technology. This is counter to our viewpoint of the necessity creativity requires through questioning what is the present and anticipating new manners or forms from which opportunity evolves.

"It suffices to refer to the independence of psychology, sociology, anthropology as cultural anthropology, to the role of logic as symbolic logic and semantics. Philosophy turns into the empirical science of man, of all of what can become for man the experiential object of his technology, the technology by which he establishes himself in the world by working on it in the manifold modes of making and shaping. All of this happens everywhere on the basis of and according to the criterion of the scientific discovery of the individual areas of beings.

No prophecy is necessary to recognize that the sciences now establishing themselves will soon be determined and steered by the new fundamental science which is called cybernetics.

This science corresponds to the determination of man as an acting social being. For it is the theory of the steering of the possible planning and arrangement of human labor. {And when that is not needed with nanotechnology and robotics what is the purpose of life for those formerly involved as cybernetically determined.} Cybernetics transforms language into an exchange of news. The arts become regulated- regulating instruments of information." (16)

Pessimism has depths of feeling and this ideology as prophetic or simply reported as it may be - is worse than any mere pessimism. I prefer to think there are at least some members of our race who have a part to play in all of this. I prefer a 'conspiracy' to a technological determinism. But herein he does identify an argument for acting before it is too late. Are there any moral players left in philosophy? Certainly there are, but it is entirely possible they won't be found teaching philosophy in schools. Why assume any Platonic or reversal of same, attitudes with games to control others? Why engage energy in destructive morality? The essence he should have studied is in the beauty of each child and on the ripples of the waves that signal the passing of what carries us towards our potential. Let all people know the truth which he defines as 'disclosure and unconcealment'. We are of the opinion this kind of truth is a necessity for change and creativity. It is often bandied about as 'transparency' in financial circles. If all mankind were able to know these truths then there might be a revival of humanity and an end to cybernetics!

Further excerpts from my Encyclopedia:

THINKING: - The essence of individuality as taught by Krishnamurti and echoed in many other teachings including 'We are all the children of God.' is - thinking. But independent thought is unusual. We have delineated in all our ruminations and exposes of the academic or peer pressured world these issues mirroring propaganda; even if it would cross your mind that the matter is not planned. It is a very complex matter to deconstruct the history which has been both generative to the quest as well as part of another more insipid and deceitful attempt to create or promulgate an elitist structure with no obvious head or clear intent.


We have already made our position of the Hegelian operatives that make our lives so replete with confusion but you might ask for less directed input and that would be most meritorious and wise. Thus we shall briefly illustrate the struggle Martin Heidegger experienced and you can follow that path more completely if you are so inclined.


"In this text, here printed complete, Heidegger recounts the need to reawaken the question of the meaning of Being. 'Being' has long served metaphysics as its most universal and hence indefinable concept. Its meaning is obvious but vacuous. Heidegger argues that interrogation of the meaning of Being requires a 'fundamental ontology' whose point of departure is an analysis of 'existence'. And not just any sort of existence. Only the being that exists in such a way that its Being is at issue for it, only the being that has an understanding of Being, however vague and amorphous, can raise the question of Being in the first place. Heidegger lets the name 'Dasein' (derived historically from 'Das-sein', the that-it-is of a being) stand for human being or 'existence' in the emphatic sense (as 'standing out'). In the first division of his treatise he intends to exhibit basic structures of the 'average everydayness' of Dasein, i.e., of human being as it is predominantly and customarily. These concretely described structures are then to be grounded in an interpretation of Time in the second division. Finally, this grounding should prepare the way for an answer to the question of the meaning of Being in general.


Of course we know that the third division of Part One, 'Time and Being,' where that response was to unfold, never appeared. Because the third division in some undisclosed way was to "turn" or "reverse" matters from 'Being and Time' to 'Time and Being', {Surely he was able to see what Dion Fortune called the Kabbala vs. the Qaballa when he used the word 'twisted'. The interdependent nature of Time with Being is both central and circuitous which allows a real avoidance of ontological or epistemic premises unless those premises are aware of the structure that manifest time and space creates in conjunction with design teleologics beyond mere individuality. Actually there are few theses or treatises which fully intrude upon the nature of these things unless Dembski has done it while mathematically formulizing 'Intelligent Design'. But mathematics is another form of distancing one's Beingness from 'Dasein' or 'all that is'- 'within the universe' as the Buddhists develop.} the problem of the incompleteness of Being and Time was soon touted as Heidegger's "departure" from that work. In spite of the prevalence of this notion in the secondary literature we may resist any facile opinions concerning Heidegger's Kehre, or "turning", by studying carefully the Introduction to Being and Time in conjunction with Reading as III, V, and X, below.


The projected second part of Being and Time was to pursue 'the task of the destruction of the history of ontology.' If in later years the problem of 'the Temporality of Being' called forth Heidegger's most profound meditations, that of the destruction--which is to be understood literally as a de-construction or painstaking dismantling-- demanded the greatest amount of his time and energy. For the attempt to revitalize traditional formulas and concepts by tracing their history was a task by no means completed in the published parts of Sein und Zeit. Heidegger's efforts to recover and renew the question of Being, to free it from the encrustations of the metaphysical tradition, remained at the center of his purpose; it was a direct outgrowth of his passion for a concrete way of raising that question, a way founded in 'original experiences' of existence. {Hard to actually do if one is focused on ontological and logical premises which do not contemplate the actual 'fields of energy' that researchers are now able to utilize and that great metaphysicians like Faraday could not construct even though they sensed the right Being.} It is significant that this 'destruction' begins with the giants of modern philosophy (specifically Descartes and Kant) and proceeds 'toward' the ancients (specifically Aristotle). {Aristotle was already coded or 'twisted'.}


Finally, the Introduction to Being and Time discusses the all-important matter of Heidegger's phenomenological method. Here he responds to the goals and methods promulgated by his teacher Husserl; here he offers a first glimpse of his own ideas of 'phenomena' and 'logos'. These in turn lay the foundation for the basic issue of truth as disclosure and unconcealment. Heidegger's interpretations of 'phenomenon', 'logos', and 'phenomenology' may therefore be viewed as paving the way for that "turn" presaged in Being and Time from the analysis of Dasein to the question of the meaning of Being in general.” (14)

The stupas of Barabudur are a most interesting library in stone as are many pyramids including the one dedicated to the Brotherhood of Man concept {Iesa = Jesus and Zeus} known as the Great Pyramid of Cheops whose only reference to it is with the graffitti of reconstruction gangs outside a place academics tell us was for funerary purposes (and no human remains are in any of those Pyramids). In fact the symbols, archetypes and these libraries in stone (see Ananda Coomswarmy[sp?], Joseph Campbell or John Mus in Eliade from my books) are the substrate of our languages that the Phoenicians and Magian Mystery Schools of the Phoenician Kelts brought forth all alphabets and ways of communicating in written and spoken words (see Ogham).

Beyond that you have Constructs that many have made to mislead through myth and ethereal elemental projections that are purposefully 'twisted' (see Dion Fortune on the Kaballah not Qabala).

Those who travel the shamanic pathways must learn to differentiate what is a deceitful construct from what might take one closer to enlightenment. Most things made by man are less than the best but
there are 'tap-ins' that can elucidate anything at all.
