Where the Knowledge Meets the Node!
TABLOIDER has been specifically designed to fit on one letter size page of
stationary, to include with its assimilation the thought, "Let's get on the same page
(be in possession of the same information, thus share common ground)," the reasoning being that if there is
but one page to put one's attention on, it's impossible to use one's attention
without obtaining some agreement with other's that access that information.
This TABLOIDER Bulletin's cover has evolved from the FRAPPIST MONKS' BEST TABLOIDER of 2011's FEBRUARY
and now contains aspects of phenomena and work performed by the following
authors and artists:
Idea Sources compiled into the
Anniversary TABLOIDER Cover
(Presented here in the chronological order in which I encountered
||Regarding Heaven & Hell
||Below the Blue Line, in the GLASS, could be
considered to be more hellish game levels and above it could be viewed as
more heavenly game levels.
The Playing Infield
|The Diamond/Infield as representing aspects of the
the action product of the TABLOIDER (a production machine), where the
four bases represent Technology, Humanity, Economy
and Religion (Humanity's four primary endeavors).
||The Ring and Pen representing aspects of the DRIP in a
three dimensional array, where the four primary endeavors of humanity
are represented as four (4) axes of action that run from
extremely opposing corners of the cage (E.G. one top, across the cage's
center, to the directly opposing bottom corner), all axes running
through the steel cage's (cube's) central, center point, with the cage
tipped up on one corner so it's retribution/salvation, demonic/divine
(Religion) axis is vertically oriented.
||The Game Rink
||The idea that the "Blue Line" equally divides the game
rink between complementary offence and defense areas.
Economy & Religion
|The idea that those are the four basic divisions of
human endeavor, thus the four main categories of collegiate subject
||Song title: "Love, or
|Using these concepts as the upper and lower
limits of the GLASS.
|L. Ron Hubbard
||"The Aims of Scientology
The Book: "Dianetics—The Modern Science of Mental Health (DMSMH)"
The Book: "Introduction to Scientology Ethics (ItSE)"
|AoS: "A civilization without insanity, without
and without war..." (bottom of the GLASS.)
DMSMH: The concept of, "Gradation,"
ItSE: The idea that human matters work different ways in different
situations, "Ethics Conditions," up and down a gradated
(articulated) scale, which extends from a condition of "Power" at that
scale's top to a condition of "Confusion" at its bottom.
||The Book: "Brave New World"
||What life might be like in an affluent, allegedly
utopian, technologically advanced [anteriorally
futuristic (from 1939) world, represented on the cover graphic
mostly by the upper half of the GLASS, down to the Blue Line.
Huxley's distinction between producers and consumers, represented on
the cover by the TABLOIDER (production; a still), product (the DRIP) and
the GLASS (consumption).
The Book: "1984"
| What life might be like in an impoverished,
allegedly dystopian, technologically advanced [anteriorally
(frontwardly)oriented], futuristic (from 1949) world, represented on the cover
graphic mostly by the lower half of the GLASS up to the Blue Line.
from the movie:
"A Beautiful Mind"
|"The Zero Sum Principle," it states that, For an
economic game to balance (equate), where someone wins, someone
must lose. The zero sum principle establishes the Blue Line
in the GLASS graphic.
This TABLOIDER cover demonstrates relationships that
rationalize, Aldus Huxley's "Brave New World" model (mockup; paradigm) of a society which
intentionally develops a consumptive component. The theme Huxley
intended there was to be a mockery, a parody of a possible future for human
civilization in which an affluent society enjoys profligate
consumption and wonton disregard for moral constraint. In the GLASS, this is
joined with Orwell's view of a future world of ominous proportions, evolved as a
consequence of that
society's inability to get its proverbial act together.
It is here neither advocated that people are supposed to be born, live and
die in horrible conditions, nor to live in unending pleasurable luxury, but rather
that it is somewhat up to them, their selves, to do what's needed
to improve, maintain, or do as well as they can to hold their games at the
highest level, in the GLASS they can, no matter what levels those games may be
determined to be primarily.
The TABLOIDER diagram on the upper portion of the cover, as opposed to the GLASS
(lower portion), represents production in the form of a distilling, or a refining
type activity, or mechanism. The drip from the Right (Individual Human) corner of the TABLOIDER represents
the product of people's efforts. The GLASS represents
the relationship of a group's quantity of stored available products to that
group's people's needs. The rationalization so
represented is that the level of the GLASS is a function of how well the
players, as workers can supply themselves with the
DRIP (the product), which is represented as how full, or not the GLASS
You could look at the cover as the TABLOIDER diagram representing work
(how product is generated, or made by an individual, or a society
of people) and the GLASS diagram representing play--how, the means by
which, that society's products are divided among the individuals of that society
and are used (consumed) by them.
Perspective: If you looked at the TABLOIDER diagram as some kind of distilling
machine and the GLASS in scale with that, the Milky Way Galaxy would be the size
of a regular sized room, one perhaps the size that you are in right now. Space,
an interesting place, devoid of attention is nothing, it's un-self... However,
when nothing is paid that primary of all human elements, attention, space
is the product, but I digress from the matter being presented in this TABLOIDER.
|Directly below is how all eight pages of a two fold card type
folded TABLOIDER, whose
two full pages
are printed back to back on letter sized paper, except that one or the other
pages should be
printed up side down from this configuration for the bulletin to read correctly
from page to page.
