Absolute terms vs relative terms



Objection: absolute terms are invalid and false, therefor irrelevant.




pro: relativism


positions of argument:

conclusion bias:


  1. relative terms over absolute terms

  2. inclusive terms over exclusive terms

  3. pro: expansion of self to include other

  4. con: 'truth' is undefinable in human/individualist terms

  5. objection: logical-fallacies-appeal to authority

  6. glossary of terms

  7. theater of war: historical references

  8. theater types: position of audience both physical and metaphorical

  9. debatable: where is the location of control?

  10. Debatable: who is in control?

What is the Difference Between Common Law and Civil Law?






Code – the collection of laws of a country or laws related to a particular subject. Codification – the process of compiling and systematizing laws into a code.


Common law – the system of law that emerged in England begin- ning in the Middle Ages and is based on case law and precedent rather than codified law.


You are what you eat?



What are you?



Tomato or potato?



"I think a tomato is much more spiritual than 1+2=3 [...] When people ask: 'What is the fundamental principal of Buddhism?', you may very well answer: 'A tomato'. Because, look how, when you examine the material world, how diaphanous it is. It really isn't very solid. A tomato doesn't last very long." ~Alan Watts in audio: "Comparative Philosophy - Philosophy of Nature" {http://ow.ly/SACuh}

function of the fool




The Fool assumes the role of Lear's protector when Cordelia is banished. The Fool functions much as a Chorus would in a Greek tragedy, commenting upon events and the king's actions and acting, in some ways, as the king's conscience. The Fool is the king's advocate, loyal and honest, but he is also able to point out the king's faults, as no one else can. The Fool's use of irony, sarcasm, and humor help to ease the truth, and allows him to moderate Lear's behavior. The Fool shares his master's fate, and this reinforces the impression that the Fool's purpose is to protect Lear until Cordelia can arrive to help her father. Both Cordelia and the Fool are caretakers for Lear, and when one is present, the other need not be.

Please like and share these valuable resources, and tell us how they worked for you! It’s hard to accept the fact that our happy chemicals can’t surge all the time. Dopamine only spurts when you approach a new reward. Oxytocin only spurts when you enjoy safety in numbers. Serotonin only spurts when you assert your social importance. You will not have peace if you rush to trigger more of these chemicals as soon as a spurt is over. You’ll have more peace in the long run if you get comfortable with the neutral feeling between these spurts.

immortal path






There are many names many masters over many centuries. They all have the same qualities in common.

Here is one book


You may consider this as a work of philosophical fiction, or perhaps more appropriately; a work of anagogic allegory. Compared to other works in The Conversations series of books, in this working it is nearly impossible to tell the difference between the two speakers in dialogue. This is testament to the closeness which has since been forged. As you read, it’s best not to concern yourself with elucidating who is saying what. Let the two voices merge and flow in and out of one another; this is a part of the magic of the working. The gist of this conversation begins, peaks, and ends, on the attainment and the understanding of Immortality. Death is not a needful experience nor a necessary process. Immortality is a gift that has been hidden in allegories, a gift which was always meant to be uncovered by a few who want it. This is what we uncover on the pages of this book. An excellent read for those who struggle with their sense of self-worth, self-love, self-acceptance, as well as those who struggle with their own identity and sense of belonging. The Conversation of Immortals may work miracles in the lives of those who have alienated parts of themselves, shunned parts of themselves, and/or toil to come to terms with various disparate characters lurking inside them, parts of their whole, which they don’t know what to do with. This book is a grimoire, a tool that ought to be used for the rearrangement and rehabilitation of the human mind and heart.




Section 000: Preface:

topic referenced:
Does gender expression affect intelligence development?

Section 001: introduction:

before watching this video discussion, this my first impression and written response.

I will complete this assessment first and then watch the video discussion to compare my response to conclusion of the group.

the question as as presented here, has a flaw. I will attempt to clarify this flaw and provide suggestions to conduct a reasonably accurate study in future by any interested parties or agencies.

Section 002: Central point:

the general distinctions addressed here are as follows:

  • subjective vs objective inquiry

  • and

  • duality of exclusion vs inclusion of plurality

  • and

  • the limitations of objective measurement

section 003: main objection:

I object to the question in this way:

This topic as presented, creates a separate, qualitative, division between two opposing groups.

What I hear, is this: “ is one group better than the other?”

premise of objection:

a qualitative comparison between two objects or groups in this case, limits the responses to subjective interpretation and offers little to no incentive to create objective or emergent responses.

If the author is seeking only subjective perspectives and attempts to debate a non-debatable subjective view, then the topic as posed will serve that intention.

it is my contention that, the overall clarity of the question can be improved and can improve the results of the inquiry. to this end, I can offer these suggestions. it is only after a careful measurement of the criteria, indepth study of the results, conduct a peer-reviewed assessment, can any one individual or agency claim; with any crediable certainty; that one group is: "qualitatively better than another".

Section 004: suggestion:

Lets rephrase the question in terms of quantitative and and pluralistic re framing.


What is the average IQ Range of (a specific demography) of people with different gender orientations?"


the clarification requirements, I propose, are:

Specific, quantifiable, non-divisive and inclusive within a targeted field of study, in this case; gender orientation, intelligence type and demographic.

Here is a list of a systemic categorization of the currently known orientations.

Main categories

demographic categorization

  • age

  • disability

  • religion

  • social origin

  • occupation

intelligence categorization

  • Naturalist (nature smart)

  • empathic, awareness of other needs

  • Musical (sound smart)

  • auditory, signal discrimination, tone, rhythm, pitch, harmonic, melody identification


  • Logical-mathematical (number/reasoning smart)

  • capability, comparative, discernment, analysis


  • Existential (life smart)

  • adaptability, spiritual


  • Interpersonal (people smart)

  • extroversion, co-dependent, street smart


  • Bodily-kinesthetic (body smart)

  • athletic muscle memory,


  • Linguistic (word smart)

  • communication: poetic


  • Intra-personal (self smart)

  • introverted, independent


  • Spatial (picture smart)

  • visual, artistic

relationship Interactions:

  • marital relationships

  • non-marital relationships

  • extra-martial relationships

  • intra-marital relationships

  • theistic relationships

  • ideological relationships

  • none

care responsibility:

  • with children

  • without children, inability, refusal by choice

  • pets

  • non pets

  • inanimate objects

  • projects, goals or ideology

  • objects of devotion, renunciation, devotee, worship

  • team, business, organization, congregation

  • no responsibilities

types of relationships

  • single

  • couples

  • poly groups

  • congregational groups


  • active

  • non active

  • intermittent


documentation: availability for testing, study, and the interview process

  • accessible

  • voluntary

  • accurate representation

biological physiology:

  • male

  • female

  • hermaphrodite

  • neuter

other contributing factors:

  • biology: disabled, malfunction, damaged, physical trauma

  • psychology: disabled, malfunction, damaged, emotional trauma

  • mental: disability, education level, damaged, mental trauma

  • chemical biology: current state of hormone production, daily levels and disruption

  • age presentation: relative, biological and behavior

  • characterization: fictional, dramatic, costume, digital, fantasy, furires

Major obstacles that impact an accurate study

under representation:

one problem here is the sample size. How many individuals can be interviewed measured for IQ quanta within each specific category.

many of these groups are severely under represented world wide.

Some classifications are rare. An additional layer of complexity is the means to locate them. fewer still, are individuals who are willing to come forward and to be identified.

Due to political aversion, social stigma and lack of trust of others.

Gender fluidity:

A another problem here is statistical accuracy. many of these individual orientations are not considered static. Some people are self-referred to as fluid and this orientation changes with a sufficient degree of frequency to make an accurate assessment difficult.

Limited western perspective:

the western mainstream view is aware of only a select few.

Asexual, BI, male only couples, female only couples.

For example the Hindu have a unique approach to describing gender roles and identities in ancient societies.

scope and range of demographic types, intelligence types, orientation types. the growing lists of categorical types are exponential in nature. more criterion that is filtered for, the higher degree of individualization and explicit accuracy can be achieved.

the ancient Hindu culture from India refers to 64 known orientations here are several References


64 Terms That Describe Gender Identity and Expression

Why does it matter?

Language and labels are important parts of understanding your gender and knowing how to be affirming and supportive of other people’s genders — but they can also be confusing.

There are so many gender terms out there, many of which overlap. Some also have definitions that shift over time or across different sources of information.

Thanks to the internet, we have more access to information, education, and visual representations of diverse genders — but comprehensive and inclusive resources about gender as a concept and this aspect of identity are still lacking.



At last count, certain people and organizations would have you know that there are 64 genders. Here is just a partial list: of 21 flavors and then some.


Masculine Homosexual Man

Masculine Heterosexual Man

Masculine Bisexual Man
Feminine Homosexual Man

Feminine Heterosexual Man

Feminine Bisexual Man
Androgine Homosexual Man

Androgine Heterosexual Man

Androgine Bisexual Man

Masculine Heterosexual Woman

Masculine Homosexual Woman

Masculine Bisexual Woman
Feminine Heterosexual Woman

Feminine Homosexual Woman

Feminine Bisexual Woman
Androgine Heterosexual Woman

Androgine Homosexual Woman

Androgine Bisexual Woman

Masculine Homosexual Andromale

Masculine Heterosexual Androfemale

Masculine Male-Attracted Androdite



here is a further breakdown in Hindu texts break down their known behaviors, bodily functions, and spiritual categories. Such as consciousness itself, can differentiate within 3 categories. Gods, human, or beasts.


3. Srimad Bhagavatam

kvacit pumān kvacicca strī kvacinnobhaya mandhadhīḥ | devo manuṣyas-tiryag vā yathā karma guṇaṁ bhavaḥ ||

The Self which is enveloped by ignorance, is sometimes embodied as a man, sometimes as a woman, sometimes as a homosexual (ubhaya). According to its deeds and the nature one acquires thereby, one may be born as a god, a human or a beast. (Bhagavatam 4.29.29.)

5. Adhyatma Ramayana

na strī pumānvā ṣaṇḍo vā jīvaḥ sarvagato’vyayaḥ | eka evādvitīyo’yam ākāśavad lepakaḥ | nityo jñānamayaḥ śuddhaḥ sa katham śokam arhati ||

Kishkindha Kanda 3:16

Rama says : “The jiva is all-pervading and endless. It is neither masculine, feminine or neuter (ṣaṇḍha). It is one without a second, unaffected by anything, like the sky. It is eternal, pure and of the nature of consciousness.



Here is one reference that presents 63genders, NO. now, 81 genders with their own 3x systemic categorization schema of gender.

They categorize gender into physical, personality, and preference.

I can interpret this as referring to: biological status, external presentation and personal preference


I won't list them all here, though apath.org goes to great lengths to be all inclusive.

Including orientations and attractions  to/of inanimate, non-biological objects.

Example: Apache Attack Helicopters (Helisexuals)

Apache Attack Helicopters (Helisexuals)

Because this is the meme-filled internet, and we want to be inclusive, I felt I should address the recent rise in Apache Attack Helicopter helisexuality online with an additional entry.

I Sexually Identify as an Attack Helicopter




Why do people think there are 63 genders?

Basically because 4^3=64

if you include the extra category on the bottom right then there are 125 (5^3) genders.
It’s easier to think of broad categories, ie just 5^3 than it is to think of 125 at the same time.. there’s probably exponentially more than 125 if you really want to categorize and not all that difficult to do..




for further study:

math homework:

The exponent of a number says how many times to use the number in a multiplication.

Exponents are also called Powers or Indices.





this group categorizes gender orientation in this way:

Sexism is any expression (act, word, image, gesture) based on the idea that some persons, most often women, are inferior because of their sex.

OTHER areas of discrimination based on role, gender or identity of expression.

  1. age

  2. disability

  3. ethnicity

  4. religion

  5. social origin

  6. sexual orientation

  7. gender identity

this model there are 2 to the power of 4

2^4 = 16 categories to classify study participants. In this model there are 16 orientations

this is an example how the exponential growth impacts quantitative measurements as new filters are added.


Eight types of intelligence

  • Logical-mathematical intelligence

  • Linguistic intelligence

  • Spatial Intelligence

  • Musical Intelligence

  • Bodily-kinesthetic Intelligence

  • Intrapersonal Intelligence

  • Interpersonal Intelligence

  • Naturalistic intelligence

note: there are several methods to Measure IQ in 8-9 types here is one of scale of measurement

note: there are different levels of measurement categories:

  • full scale IQ

  • verbal IQ and Performance IQ

  • verbal comprehension index

  • working memory index

    perceptual organization index

  • processing speed index

  • 16 additional sub categories


The Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale (WAIS) is an IQ test designed to measure intelligence and cognitive ability in adults and older adolescents.[1] The original WAIS (Form I) was published in February 1955 by David Wechsler, as a revision of the Wechsler–Bellevue Intelligence Scale, released in 1939.[2] It is currently in its fourth edition (WAIS-IV) released in 2008 by Pearson, and is the most widely used IQ test, for both adults and older adolescents, in the world. Data collection for the next version (WAIS 5) began in 2016 and is expected to end in spring 2020.[3]


Further study:

Theory of multiple intelligences



The theory of multiple intelligences proposes the differentiation of human intelligence into specific “modalities of intelligence”, rather than defining intelligence as a single, general ability.[1] The theory has been criticized by mainstream psychology for its lack of empirical evidence, and its dependence on subjective judgement.[2]





Enneagram personality types:

the Enneagram adds and additional layer of filtering to personality expression beyond gender roles, perceived

or characterized, real or imaginary.


There are nine basic personality Types on the Enneagram (the name “Enneagram” means nine-pointed figure). Every individual is one of the nine Types. The primary Type is the most essential element of our personality. It is our lens on the world through which all of our thoughts and experiences are filtered. 

further study:



to add an additional layer to the of human expression Identity complex,

here are 16 types of personalities that are expresses either explicit, latent or implied.


i personally oscillate between intp and infp with some isfp tendencies. eve i dont always fit within a standard paridigm.

Radical Philosophy Association (RPA)


The Radical Philosophy Association is a non-sectarian, international forum for the philosophical discussion of fundamental social change. Founded in 1982, the RPA is open to anyone who shares the view that society should be built on cooperation rather than competition, and that social decision-making should be governed by democratic procedures. It considers its enterprise to be inherently interdisciplinary and welcome persons not trained in philosophy. More information is available at www.radicalphilosophyassociation.org.





The philosophy of systemic change



  • how can change, reformation of traditional values occur?

  • what methods of reformation are possible?

  • what are the mechanisms; (past, present and future) that can effect change on our religious, cultural, intellectual, technological systems?


Section 1: direction of change


  • change comes from within an agency

  • OR

  • change comes from the outside an agency


Section 2: speed of change:

  • gradual, deliberate, regulated, incremental, long term, can be peaceful

  • OR

  • sudden, spontaneous, chaotic, immediate, short term, can be violent


Section 3: participation of change:

  • inclusive actions

  • or

  • exclusive actions


Section 4: method of change:

  • covert tactics

  • or

  • overt tactics


Section 5: range of change

  • local, isolated , incomplete, (limited)

  • OR

  • global, entire, near-complete (unlimited)


change from within:

  • the leader of Islam, the Em can be petitioned to make changes to their system

  • or

  • be deposed and replaced with a moderate, progressive reformer.


  • the pope can issue edicts, and the cardinals debate how to implement the change.

  • or

  • the pope can be voted out, or replaced when they die. a progressive reformist pope can work towards changing their system.


Change from without:

  • Civil societies can impose regulations of expression



  • the leaders of each tradition, can be a causal agent to move towards a secular or orthodox view and practice.



  • secular societies can create laws that regulate

  • the freedom of expression of offensive traditions in protected public spaces.


Historical reference:

the church of England was a historical response to reform the christian faith

create a second progressive branch that served the people of the period



any tradition can be followed or discarded by every generation or individual.

The main point is that laws and policies can be drafted to regulate the public expression of offensive traditions.



fear, bias, cultural rejection, ms-information, mass psychosis, political will


Further research:

there should be examples of existing bills, policies and federal acts that prohibit hate speech, regardless of tradition.
