Press Release 2 .....
Dateline: November 5th, 2007

BIGGIE Discovery just made:

...which is?

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My Values are BETTER than your values !!!!!!!!!!!
!!!!!!!!!!
ie, nix the Midas Mulligan/Greenspan thingy and do this instead!!!!!!!!!!!
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

As example (and these examples assume we have opposing values, so that, if your values do not oppose mine or if yours are similar to mine then our values are better than those real and/or hypothetical others whose values oppose ours):

.......................Value....................
     Heterosexual relationships are BETTER than homosexual ones because opposites by nature are more diverse and (hypothetically) synergistic. (Diverse in the goodness sense of meeting diversity needs as same relate to man's epistemological needs as mind is part of what good sex is all about, i.e., sex as mind-body integration when based on shared values and as mind only or body only when not. As mind only it is approval of significant others when internal thinking motivates you to solicit that good looking "babe" at the bar and fu.. scr.. have sex with her so your "boys" smile down on you approvingly = "hey what a stud ..." , " ... he's studley ..." and so on and so forth, "hey what a 'man' ... " as you descend deeper and deeper into being ... Social Metaphysical Man ...and halt... [is this too complicated???] ... maybe not ... let's continue. As body only when sex with partner is either no better than or not as good as ... masterbating ... ). That is, in opposite man-woman relationships similarities and differences are not just additive but rather are to the power of 2 [hypothesis]. For example, or rather, by way of example, if negative aspects of relationships are synergistic why aren`t the positive ones too? Vis à vis, my opposite-sex "partner" and I alone have problems with greed but together we are Greed Squared ( ¶7 * ) so by knowing this we can benefit from it and do things differently (e.g., have separate investment/business accounts/interests rather than together ones),

therefore,

[ halt ... I grant that the source of this ("greed") could be the desire within each to be the other's hero but this is a different [deeper] issue ... at the level I am currently aware of it I experience it as stated ... as a kind of greed ... with greed understood to mean: all mine, no sharing, none nada zero ... zip ... etc. ... again, see the asterisk at the end of paragraph 7 in the previous link for more]

therefore,

seek to gain and/or keep heterosexual relationships. (Notice the follow on logic: the importance of making them good and/or better is also squared ... is that is, if the synergism hypothesis turns out to be the case ... and also notice what this does NOT say, it does not say that if you take all the two people sexual relationships on earth and compare them, that the worst man-woman one is better than the best same sex one ... for this to be the case the synergism exponent would have to be a hell of a lot higher than 2 )

.......................Value....................
     The english language is the best human language so far developed on earth because it is the best combination of communicating to self - - introspective communication as same is used for self- understanding - - AND for self to figure out/understand the outside world. (For introspection observations see my many references to the slip or slOp? question I have when I make a (brandian) "slip" ... see also Freudian slips ... though these probably are not as language dependent as are those which I am temporarily calling brandian slips ... [you can even notice here how one can use language in unique ways: because my hypothesis about slips of the keyboard keys as I type are revelatory-to-me and are true psychhological slips I call them lower-case brandian slips until I get more evidence that make them be really real and not just sloppy typing ... and then when and if I establish enough of them so I can conclude they are really the real thing then I can change name to upper-case Brandian slips] ... for example, since I have a Masters Degree in Counseling Psychology and I love debating philosophical and psychhological issues, is it possible that the "alleged" misspelled word a couple of paragraphs back ... that is, "materbating" for "masturbating" ... is it possible this is a slip? ... or is it slop?(py) typing and/or spelling?

I could have changed the spelling when I finally discovered it (which wasn't until after the tenth edit read through of this article at which time I finally decided to run it through spell check and discovered the 'misspell') but I chose not to change it because I'm not yet sure which it is ... but notice, if it's NOT misspelling then it reveals something about me and the question is, what is that something? ... mental masturbation is one possibility, but what exactly does that mean? ... another one--and the more probable one--is this: master(de)bating psycHHology with self is better than intercourse of the verbal kind with others, especially those others who call themselves one h "psychologists" ...

or probably it is just a misspelled word.

tbd).

therefore,

seek to learn and/or keep english as your main language (see my minsiters example for one specific, definite slip in a slip or slOp? example).

.......................Value....................
     also so far ... on earth ... Ayn Rand is the BEST philosopher ever ... again, the best so far because of her creative, ground breaking- seed planting genius work in all three branches of philosophy: epistemology (Introduction to Objectivist Epistemology), metaphysics (The Metaphysical vs the Man Made, p. 23 in pbk book: Philosophy: Who Needs It ) and ethics (The Virtue of Selfishness ) therefore, seek to learn objectivism and all it has to offer and keep/retain its valuable insights and knowledge ...

.......................Value....................
     Engineers (such as my first career self), qua recognizable/isolable subgroup within the broader population, are BETTER reasoners than the general population, therefore if you are an engineer honor your reason capable/reason worshipping part and keep it, and if you are not as reason good as are engineers then seek to become so ...

.......................Value....................
     Introspection (a process ... of cognition directed inward) is a learnable skill and is a good skill to spend the time learning, therefore learn introspection ...

.......................Value....................
     Over analyzing is better than under analyzing but just right analyzing is the BEST, therefore strive for relevance (that is, for that and only that which pertains to your survive & thrive needs) in all your analyzing efforts.

....................etc Values...................
     T hinking is good, therefore learn how to think.

     F eeling is good, therefore learn how to feel.

     A cting is good, therefore learn how to act.

     j udging is good, therefore learn how to judge.

     Metaphysical Metaphysicians are BETTER than Social Metaphysicians, therefore seek MM attributes and shun SM ones

     Health is BETTER than sickness, therefore seek health, maintain health, avoid sickness.

     Happiness and joy are BETTER than suffering and sadness, therefore seek happiness and joy.

     Freedom is better than slavery, therefore seek freedom.

     Mental health is better than mental illness, therefore seek and maintain mental health, shun mental illness.

     Some values are unconditional but not all values are, some are conditional therefore seek wisdom, knowledge and understanding so that you too will be able to recognize the difference, for example:

           It's not possible to have too much health (health is an unconditional value), but it is possible to spend too much time trying to increase and/or maintain it (this, colloquially, is known as the problem of diminishing returns)

           It's not possible to have too much self esteem, but it is possible to spend too much time trying to increase and/or maintain it (same diminishing returns problem)

           It's not possible to have your cake and eat it too, therefore don't pretend and/or claim that you can ...

           It's not possible to draw a square circle, therefore don't pretend and/or claim that you can ... unless you can show one so drawn ...

           It's not possible to go above or below or get outside of existence in any way, therefore don't pretend and/or claim that you can ... unless, etc ...

           It's not possible to deny consciousness without using consciousness, therefore don't pretend and/or claim that you can ... unless, etc ...

           It's not possible for A to be A and not-A at the same time and in the same respect, therefore don't pretend and/or claim that it can ... unless, etc ...

     And some things just do not make sense, e.g.:

           To say or argue I or One should not have any shoulds is an absurd statement, therefore, the correct/ "makes sense" position is, I should have shoulds, that is, you should value noncontradiction.

And if your question to any of the above is ...

     Why?

Be sure to read BiO Spiritualism's next (December, 2007) Newsletter for more answers to life's intriguing questions.

           For example, the MM and SM character-istics (A/ambivalent, C/conventional, I/individual, S/spiritual, PS/p ower s eeker HERO/Villain) are the names of eidetic substructures within sub-self personalities

           that ... etc ... to be determined ... (or, is it that they are the names of the sub-selfs them-selves???, or that is, ... like I said ... tbd ...)

           ... and ... man against nature, man against man make for good drama but man FOR self is the best there ever was ... and ever will be ...

           ... and ... etc ... ToBeContinued ...

{{
In one form or another ... until August 30th, 2052 (that is 10 years plus ( ¶19 *  ... counting title line with Gary's Venns as paragraph 1, the first "Enter Website: Guest" line as ¶ 2 and so on ... ) a month or
so longer than my mother's almost made it to her 97th birthday) or
8/30/2053 (just one more
year for good measure),
not my birthday, but
my deathday.
