is about

self-ordering, open processes to foster integration and mismatches, creativity,
body-centred and somatic knowing, emergent approaches, data beyond pattern recognition, self-righting, growth, using language and space to go beyond language, systems, wholeness and more – all this has a common home crossing-over in our ‘sensemaking’.

Day and Night

Complementary views of the one world. Day and Night  hangs at the M. C. Escher Museum in The Hague, Netherlands. It was made from two wood blocks and black ink.

Things that we have for a long time, things that we use and look through, become part of the vocabulary of the mind. They aren’t just objects, they are part of the way we comprehend the universe.

Disconfirmations (series#2)


“The sun was shining on the sea,
Shining with all his might:
He did his very best to make
The billows smooth and bright
-- And this was odd, because it was
The middle of the night.

The moon was shining sulkily,
Because she thought the sun
Had got no business to be there
After the day was done
-- "It's very rude of him," she said,
"To come and spoil the fun!"

The sea was wet as wet could be,
The sands were dry as dry.
You could not see a cloud, because
No cloud was in the sky:
No birds were flying overhead
-- There were no birds to fly.

In a Wonderland they lie
Dreaming as the days go by,
Dreaming as the summer die.”

Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

Continuity #8

Fictions of the monolithic self

"the central 'I' is not a fact, it's a longing - the longing of all the selves within the psyche that are starving because they are not recognized"

                                                                      — Michael Ventura

"If fear was plucky, and globes were square,

And dirt was cleanly and tears were glee
Things would seem fair,—
Yet they’d all despair,
For if here was there

We wouldn’t be we."

                                                                       — e.e.cummings, If

"the whole of existence is an irrepresentable continuum, ordered in itself, whose inherent dynamism manifests in latent pictorial structures, not able to be perceived immediately"

                                                                        —  Wang Fu Chih
