Reflections From the Cement Coffin (Short-Wave-Frequency-Transmission)
I have already written and shared the basic framework of (vision) earthvibe. My intention is to heavily invest in sharing my reflections through the APWA, but I think it may be in my best interest that I first communicate with you a little more about it.
Since my arrest on the night of December 29,1990, I unknowingly began to seek a logical analysis of the nature of the prison system and the root cause of mass incarceration. I began to do so in the form of seeking to logically understand the root cause of the thinking process leading to my incarceration. I have discovered that this nature of the prison system and the root cause of mass incarceration is intimately connected to the thinking process of both the individual being and our collective being. The connection would appear to be a obvious one to make, if it is reasonable to consider that our experience in this world is a direct result/effect caused by the thinking process. For example, illogical thinking = the conditions of a suffering world x the degree of illogical thinking, but what may not be so obvious among us is the lack of logical awareness of the nature of the thinking process.
The point for consideration I'm leading to is that the purpose of my seeking a logical analysis of the nature of the prison system and root cause of mass incarceration has been to arrive at a logical solution. I feel that I have arrived at a logical understanding of the solution. Consequently, I would like to share reflections through the APWA that are primarily related to discussion having to do with the implementation of the logical solution I feel has been discovered (i.e. the declaration of independence).
What I have been doing is studying the nature of consciousness (i.e. the thinking process) via observation of physical beings inside the prison environment with me. The specific word model to describe what I have been doing is praxeology. It means the study of human conduct and behavior. Of course my observations of physical beings are compared and contrast with the observation of the physical being through which I experience my existence.
Any discussion regarding the nature of consciousness it seems is generally thought to be an abstract subject matter. The attempt to pin down a logical understanding of the dynamic nature of consciousness it seems is generally thought to be like attempting to scientifically prove the existence of the supernatural being theorized by many to be the creator of all physical manifestation that we see. But it seems reasonable to consider that attempting to scientifically prove the existence of the supernatural being may be equivalent of attempting to scientifically prove the existence of thought.
If it is reasonable to consider that thought precedes creation; that previous to the intended creation thought (i.e. the thinking process) has to be applied and contemplated, then it would appear to also be reasonable to consider that, like us, the supernatural being theorized to exist has a mind, is a thinking being and utilizes thought as her/his creative agent. However, the difference between our individual minds and the mind of the supernatural being theorized to exist would appear to be the magnitude of the supernatural beings thinking capacity or power to manifest her/his creation. It doesn't seem necessary to attempt to scientifically prove the existence of thought because thought is something we experience every single day. But what does appear to be necessary is that we become logically aware of the nature of thought (i.e. the thinking process) as the logical solution to mass incarceration and other related social issues appearing as obstacles to the rehabilitation of this world.
The experiences I have to share regarding the little more than a quarter of a century that I have been incarcerated (behind physical walls and electrical fences) revolve around the study of the nature of consciousness that has helped to lead me to the logical solution to mass incarceration that I speak of as (vision) earthvibe. I would like to focus my reflections through the APWA on the logical solution to mass incarceration as opposed to analysis regarding the problem of mass incarceration. Although the two seem to be related, the shift to focus on logical solution becomes necessary. It seems reasonable to consider that it is only through and with our collective thinking process that we will be able to solve the problem of mass incarceration. With your permission (of course) I would like to join forces with you in order to share earthvibe with a much larger audience than I have been able to do thus far. There are logical responses to any questions regarding the fundamental soundness of earthvibe. The simple logic of earthvibe speaks in such a way that rejection of it is a vote for the illogical way of thinking facilitating the social ills we say we desire a logical solution to.
My continuing experience in studying the nature of consciousness is now compelling me to communicate earthvibe with increasing degrees of clarity/simplicity. For instance, if it is reasonable to consider that the declaration for independence is both the directive and plan of action to rehabilitate the social consciousness of this world (i.e. eradicate mass incarceration/suffering in the process), why then aren't our publicly elected leaders engaging this world with this discussion? What does it mean if the public leaders of this world aren't aware of the directive and plan of action? What does it mean if the power of the people is really inside us (i.e. logical consciousness, our United States being) and consequently the responsibility of our public leaders is limited to managing the affairs of this world as opposed to becoming logically aware of the logical solution to them? It would seem to mean that, until our species awakens, we will continue to be imprisoned in this world by the opinions of mankind.
I am beginning to now, it seems, be able to communicate earthvibe in a real simple manner. The prison environment (behind physical walls and electrical fences) operates upon my conscious-awareness like a compression chamber- forcibly squeezing my mind into increasing degrees of simplicity. I must be allowed to write the way that I write; not from the analytical mind but from the heart. I must be allowed to move the way I move through reflections. And yes my desire to do so does not limit what you do as editors.
Earthvibe is a bold vision. But isn't this what America is really about; the fearlessness to dream and think big-bold ideals? I would like to join forces with you. May the simplicity of my next submission to the APWA reflect the seriousness of my intent.
