Echo of the Mockingbird
Why Postwar Historiography is Anti-Historiographic

Conflict between two differing perspectives on the notion of identity as a metaphysical category is presented as thematically precipitating World War Two. Origins of this conflict are traced in the history of higher mathematics, the theory of logic, and of physics from the early 19th century through the German Weimar Period. It is maintained that the Nazi pathogenesis cannot be fully understood absent generalization of the quantum theory of “collective and cooperative behavior in physical systems” into social science and medical paradigms. The argument is made that this generalization has not transpired, because to do so would be to cast doubt upon consensus accounts of origins of the war and the validity of postwar historiography. Indeed, the thesis is put forward that falsification of quantum mechanics during the mid-1920s so staggered the Germanic peoples, who had gone further than any other identifiable group to creatively integrate the emerging world view of the “new physics”, that something like the Nazi pathogenesis was a virtual inevitability. The outstanding implication of these perspectives is that none of the thematic precipitating factors were depotentiated by the events of World War Two; they were only driven more deeply into the unconscious, where they have lain in a state of ferment.

Can Planning Be a Coherent Free Market Behavior?

When this article was circulated, most readers dismissed it as an attempt to resurrect central planning. Given that the perspective argued is somewhat to the right of anarcho-capitalism, one was given pause and forced to contemplate how much assessments are arrived at by label recognition as opposed to content analysis. Principles having their origins in Herbert Fröhlich's account of cooperative behaviors in quantum systems -- e.g., superconductivity -- are here applied so as to improve the level of self-organizational competency of free market mechanisms, thus reducing the need for government regulatory interference. How's that for a label?

Multivalue, Nanoimmunity, and the Genesis of Metaculture

The involutory relation between single-valued and multivalued mathematical functions is discussed as underlying several categories of natural process and human systems: generative and transformational dynamics of bureaucratic organizations; stereochemical and quantum frequency aspects of immune system function; cultural codification, dynamics, and symbolic interaction. This deep systemic isomorphism is offered as a premise in arguing that there are social and cultural dimensions of autoimmune disease. A therapeutic approach to treatment of pathological cosmologies involving metacultural signification is proposed.

Movements Proposal

Mudra postures of Indic dance tradition had their origin in stylization of transorgasmic trance seizure, a particularly intense form of autogenic abreactive brain discharge. Formation of a full-blown psychic membrane in EPR correlation of human brains involves seizure induction when intra-neuronal and intra-perineural DNA semiconductant-to-conductant-to-superconductant transitions take place in a march across patches of neuronal and perineural cell networks. Trance seizure onset is synchronous with evolution of the first-sound, second-sound, and third-sound coherent-wave output from intra-neuronal and intra-perineural DNA intracranially resonating in standing wave patterns (in memoriam Itzak Bentov) the ventricles and stem cell beds, and intercranially -- from the phase-correlating brains of the involved human pod -- impacting the congealing membrane of the podís emerging psychic fractal drum or bioplasmic satin-flow amnionic sac. Such a process undoubtedly is one prerequisite for biological superconductant levitation by humans. Intracranially, no commissura rostralis cerebri are required for synaesthetic fusion of left and right brain functions, as this is accomplished by holographic quantum wave interactions; commissural communication comes with loss of DNA superconductivity and the associated synaesthesia as a normative mode of functioning. Intercranially, no “natural” language is required for long-range communication, unless superconductivity of intraneuronal DNA is lost. Though none of this was discussed in the Movements Proposal -- for obvious reasons -- it lay in the background as an informing hypothesis. No specific dance tradition is implied; it could also be Ceylonese, Cambodian, Gurdjieff movements, and so on: indeed, any dance form based explicitly on inner spiritual work.

Time-Logics of Identity Transparency:
some experiential aspects

Given are the mnemonics Derek used in an attempted simulation of BosŤ-Einstein condensation on the level of intact brains. EPR correlations between human brains have been experimentally studied by the physicist J. Grinberg-Zylberbaum using Faraday chambers. The same correlations were experientially studied by Special Forces half-teams in Laos and Viet Nam. The “solipsism of the group” attendant upon long-range phase correlation involves formation of a “psychic membrane” permitting a type of fractal entrapment, mediated by onset of m-valued modes of awareness and cognition. The presently described attempted simulation transpired at the All of Everything conference organized by Anthony Blake at the Baltimore Holistic Health Institute. Musical accompaniment was composed and performed in real-time by Robert Fripp.

Time-Logics of Identity Transparency:
some systematics aspects

If experiential aspects of identity transparency provide entrée to the involved systematics, then the reverse is equally true: without insight into systematics, one can, for instance, spend a fruitless lifetime seeking one-to-one identity transparency (following in the footsteps of Tristan and Isolde) without realizing one-as-if-only-one is traipsing a by-definition forbidden path, touting as the highest transport what is not far from the dregs. Systematics reveal that logical categories of direct experience of identity preclude any one-as-if-only-one from fusing one-to-one with any one-as-if-other: the permitted path of such fusion (as Merlin knew and Perceval learned) always being via animistic identification with the Whole ambient surround. Fusion processes, by definition, must experientially leap between orders of logical-value defining categories of identity, otherwise the “fusion” is mere greenhoused pretense. This is not to say that some technological short-circuit could not in principle be arranged such that one-as-if-only-one could experience the experience of another one-as-if-only-one, but this, of course, would have nothing to do with authentic identity transparency. Confusion regarding this specific issue in large measure induces psychoneuroimmunologic shifts responsible for involuntary dissociation to non-communicating multiple identities: in metaphor of everyday social life.
