Tools vs Ploys (english)
06 Jan 2003
Man-made laws, legal agreements, royal fiats are not tools. Man-made laws and customs are not technology. They are political power ploys, originally instituted only by-physical-might-asserted and -sustained
"rights."

[Speaking of tools vs ploys, isn't it interesting that Alvin Marks' LEPCON photovoltaic technology is being increasingly suppressed by... lawyers, politicians, banksters and other terrorists? - JPC]

..Simple tool-inventing, such as picking up a stone to throw in self-defense, requires only the brain's instinctive functioning.

Almost everywhere stones lie ready to serve as heavier "fists" for powerful, but only occasionally needed, punching, pounding, or smashing.

Mind, which alone comprehends the complex interaction of principles, is required to anticipatorily invent stone-throwing slings, spring-loaded catapults, or bow-and-arrows archery.

Tools of self-defense or aggressive warfare, called weapons, frequently embody principles that can be constructively rather than destructively employed.

Beyond even that, they can solve positively the originally negative, aggression-aggravating problem - a basic precept of design science.

Conversely, ballpoint pens, carried with us in our breast pockets because so frequently used, can be employed either constructively to write a life-saving prescription or destructively as a dagger.

My hearing aids and my eyeglasses are more permanent components of my awake hours than are millions of daily dying-and-being-replaced protoplasmic cells of which my flesh is constructed - otherwise I could not lose a pound a day. My eyeglasses and hearing aids together weigh only a quarter of a pound.

The same tool can become the extensions of many individuals, and for longer years than human generations. Bridges and transcontinental highways are universally social tools.

Airplanes are mutually interchangeable human flying tools. There are metaphysical as well as physical tools.

Mathematics are metaphysical tools.

Inter-relevant metaphysical informations are tools.

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Department of Mathematics states officially: "Mathematics is the science of structure and pattern in general."

Physical structures are tools.

Mathematics makes possible the synergetic organization of metaphysical information which can be progressively objectivized as pattern-controlling or evolving tools systems which can advantageously alter the physical environmental circumstances of human existence.

The comprehensive name for the omni-interrelated significance of all physical and metaphysical tools is "technology."

All technology is governed by generalized physical laws. All of these can be physically demonstrated and mathematically expressed.

The physical Universe itself is omnitechnology - a complex of various frequencies of inter-complementary functions altogether producing nonsimultaneous, multi-frequenced, multimagnituded, only overlappingly inter-episoded, eternal regeneration.

Man-made laws, legal agreements, royal fiats are not tools.

Man-made laws and customs are not technology.

They are political power ploys, originally instituted only by-physical-might-asserted and -sustained "rights."

Corporations are not tools. They are conventionally accepted power-proclaimed legal contrivances.

There are two fundamental types of tools: those which can be produced by one human unaided in any way physically or metaphysically by any other humans and those which could not be invented, developed, or operated by one human alone. The latter, multi-human-involvement tools, are the industrial tools.

The solo-evolved tools are craft tools. The solo-developed craft tools can be complex and even powered, as by a harnessed creature or a dammed stream of water.

Craft tools used as weapons make it possible for physically small humans to overwhelm physically either big humans or even bigger animals - tiger pitfall traps are one example.

This brings us to the slaying of the giant Goliath by David and to the generalized principle of brain-mastered brawn by mind-mastered brain, of the metaphysical mastering the physical.

This in turn brings us to the present confrontation of humanity by the Grunch of Giants - the supranational corporate conglomerates - the greatest giants in all history invisibly "Rough-Riding" planet Earth.

While you can see their skyscrapers and factories, these are only the physical properties occupied by the human-drone workers employed by the elusively invisible corporate conglomerates....
