OUR ‘RAISON D’ETRE’ RATIONALE

We
(herein soberly-focused few)
(sufficiently-mature-&-right-minded ‘people’)
need to comprehensively-improve
our self-governance

personally
&
worldwide-human-populationally
&
EarthLife-Supportively

such that both
we
and
this Earth’s Lifesupports
not only
survive
both Immediately & Longest-Termly
but
‘all-round-&-in-depth’
co-thrive
too.
—————
For this”thrival-survival” to fully-begin ‘happening’
we
(you there and we two-or-three lifeplace-folk in here)
need to set-about
mutual-self
co-fitnessing-for-Purpose
in Bodyparts, Emotions, Mind-Functions
and in the other four (4) model-parts of
the 7-Foldly Wholistic Living
Individual Human Being Sustainworthy Lifestyle Model
namely-
(iv) Environmentals
(v) Spiritual-Needs
(vi) Personally-Sanctuarial ‘Time-Out-Now’
(vii) Workplace Job Necessities.
————————–

APPROXIMATE-SESSION-TIMETABLE

Since our aim
number (1) here
Is
Maintaining our Bodyparts in “full working order”

we need to be
“continually”*
One-Finger-One-Thumb-Keeping-Moving ..
One-pairoflegs-one-back-&-one-bum keeping-moving …
One pairofeyes-one-group-of-words-one-task-keeping-focused …
(and we’ll all be merry and bright
)”.

Book 1: Out Of The Wreckage :-
Author George Monbiot ‘exclusively-focuses’ upon
(“) the primary human-life-essentiality of
‘following. remembering and believing-in Stories.
The Story is The Thing:

Chapter One
A Story of Our Times
He says
Stories are the means by which we navigate the world”.
Yes;
and indeed here in http:lifefresh.net it has long ago been pointed out that one of the best stories we ever heard, and learned,
was in a school classroom
1 + 1 = 2
“One and one is two”.

HOWEVER

Life-Itself has been
both continually and continuously
‘intervening’;
such that the following has become the necessary
“What do we now ‘make-of-this-‘story'”
———–
“This ‘story’
verbatim** from page 2
of this (otherwise quite worthwhile) book :
“When we encounter a complex issue and try to understand it,
what we look for is
not
consistent and reliable facts

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

but a consistent and comprehensible story.
When we ask ourselves whether something makes sense,
the ‘sense’ we seek is not rationality,
as scientists and philosophers perceive it,
but narrative fidelity.
Does what we are hearing
reflect the way we expect
humans and the world to behave ?
Does it hang together ?
Does it express as stories should progress ? “.

[*** Our ‘Scrutiny’s Duty]
If so, why are we supporting so many
wrong and bad ‘stories’ –
wars;
diseases;
neglects;
corruptions;
procrastinatory-fantasies & delusions
?

2213
WE PAUSE FOR OUR SCRUTINY[***] TO ‘DO ITS DUTY’

Then, as with John Donne’s approach
“To God – canst Thou forgive”,
“… and when you have done, you have not done,
for we have more
!”

Within the above quotation,
we ‘test-scrutinisingly’
peacefully-radically-reform
the author’s “not” to “both”,
and “but” to “and” –

Thus “…what we look for is both consistent and reliable facts
and
a consistent and comprehensible story.”



2231 ‘break’ for a few minutes, please

NOTES

* remember the practical distinction between
“unbroken-continuousness”
and
“broken [or ‘dotted-line’] continuality”
————-
** ‘word-for-word –
but editingly-spaced here and there
to show places where we need to do some ‘scrutiny’
before’swallowing it all hook, line and sinker.
OK ?
