Pattern of 14-Foldness as an Implicit Organizing Principle for Governance?
Anthony Judge | Laetus in Praesens – TRANSCEND Media Service, 18 Oct 2021

18 Oct 2021 – The case for the following search of web resources follows from two similar investigations undertaken previously. Web searches were undertaken to determine the extent to which a 14-fold pattern was used to organize information of relevance to any form of governance. A key question is how the individual results are to be interpreted.

Institutional Blackmail — No Jab, No Job, No Livelihood
Anthony Judge | Laetus in Praesens – TRANSCEND Media Service, 11 Oct 2021

11 Oct 2021 – Reframing Virtual Death and Assisted Dying by “Just Suffering Theory” – Governments’ responses to the pandemic have been cautiously sensitive to the concerns articulated in the Nuremberg Code. Yet, progressively those provisions have been circumvented through policies of “No Jab, No Job”, with restrictions imposed on the unvaccinated–and freedoms reserved for the vaccinated.

Integrating Ouroboros and Yi Jing as Fundamental Symbols in 3D
Anthony Judge | Laetus in Praesens - TRANSCEND Media Service, 4 Oct 2021

Dynamics of Change Indicated in Virtual Reality by a Torus of 64 Hexagrams – Curiously the imaginative anticipation of the organization of a possible future by different cultures involves a change of metaphor from “global” to “toroidal.”

Crafting an Exit Strategy from Universal Vaccination Failure
Anthony Judge | Laetus in Praesens - TRANSCEND Media Serice, 20 Sep 2021

20 Sep 2021 – Prudent Preparation for the Probability and Impact of the Unforeseen – There is clearly a major global consensus by authorities on the strategy of universal vaccination as the primary response to the COVID-19 pandemic. This is justified by them in the light of interpretations of available evidence and modelling with regard to herd immunity — for which there is necessarily no hard evidence in the current case.

Enabling the “New Normal” through “Renormalization”
Anthony Judge | Laetus in Praesens - TRANSCEND Media Service, 6 Sep 2021

The pandemic highlighted widespread concern with the possibility of conditions returning to “normal”. This is now framed as “the light at the end of the tunnel”. Recognition that it is becoming unreasonable to expect to return to that old “normal” — whether or not that is desirable — discussion has however shifted to understanding the nature of the so-called “new normal”

Misleading Modelling of Global Crises
Anthony Judge | Laetus in Praesens – TRANSCEND Media Service, 30 Aug 2021

The argument here is provoked by the single-issue modelling of the global pandemic and the consensus to which it has given rise regarding universal vaccination as “doing the right thing” and “for the benefit of all” — with zero consideration of alternative possibilities. Not only are these alternatives absent from public discourse, but any efforts at their articulation are reframed as misleadingly associated with misinformation — therefore requiring vigorous suppression, and censorship of those promoting such methodological consideration.

Being Unmasked as Unshot and Unjabbed
Anthony Judge | Laetus in Praesens - TRANSCEND Media Service, 23 Aug 2021

23 Aug 2021 – There is an unprecedented global agreement among authorities about the desirability, if not the necessity, of universal vaccination. Via the media, government propaganda urges people to get their “shots” or “jabs”. The following is a reflection on the existential condition of being “unshot” and “unjabbed” — and being “unmasked” as such.

Interrelating Multiple Ways of Looking at a Crisis
Anthony Judge | Laetus in Praesens - TRANSCEND Media Service, 9 Aug 2021

9 Aug 2021 – It is extraordinary to note that the current period is witness to a singular way of looking at a crisis. In this case the challenge is the pandemic. The one way of looking that has emerged as an absolute global necessity is universal vaccination. Informed by “science”, every effort is now made to ensure that all authorities reinforce this modality and that any other way is depicted as ridiculous, if not dangerous — to be eradicated by any means possible.

19 Jul 2021 – Denial and Unconscious Cover-up in the Light of Jung, Freud, and Sabina Spielrein – There is a case for comparing the emergence of psychoanalysis a century ago — in response to challenging individual experiential disorders — with the current challenge to society faced with a variety of collective experiential “disorders”.

Application of Universal Vaccination Narrative to Climate Change
Anthony Judge | Laetus in Praesens – TRANSCEND Media Service, 31 May 2021

30 May 2021 – There are numerous sources justifying universal vaccination against COVID-19. However, many others highlight the arguments for vaccine hesitancy. The controversy bears a resemblance to the poisonous discourse between opposing political parties in any country — except that the enforced total dominance of public discourse by pro-vaccination authorities is more consistent with the dynamics of a dictatorship.

Encoding Coherent Topic Transformation in Global Dialogue
Anthony Judge | Laetus in Praesens - TRANSCEND Media Service, 24 May 2021

24 May 2021 – Few would question the importance of dialogue in this period of global crises and poisonous divisiveness. There are of course many approaches to dialogue although it is less evident how their insights translate into the challenges of inter-national, inter-faith, inter-cultural, inter-sectoral, and inte-disciplinary dialogue in practice. There are many calls for dialogue as a substitute for conflict. There is however a sense in which the appreciation of dialogue is somewhat superficial — reinforced by exercises in which it only takes token and symbolic form as a feature of public relations.

Comparability of “Vaxxing Saves” with “Jesus Saves” as Misinformation?
Anthony Judge | Laetus in Praesens – TRANSCEND Media Service, 17 May 2021

Problematic Challenge of Global Discernment – The international community strongly deprecates the isolated voices associated with vaccine hesitancy citing possibilities of: autism, vaccine overload, paradoxical vaccine responses, autoimmune triggering, prenatal infection, ingredient concerns, sudden infant death syndrome, and infertility. Reference is to incidence of other vaccines-related injuries (readily dismissed by authorities as rare and negligible)

Anthony Judge | Laetus in Praesens - TRANSCEND Media Service, 10 May 2021

The 17 Sustainable Development Goals, as widely promoted by the UN, can be understood as the culmination of humanity’s best effort to respond in a coherent manner to the longer-term challenges of global governance in this period.

Meta-pattern via Engendering and Navigating “Pantheons” of Belief?
Anthony Judge | Laetus in Praesens - TRANSCEND Media Service, 19 Apr 2021

Conventionally a pantheon is the particular set of all gods of any individual polytheistic religion, mythology, or tradition. There are an estimated 4,200 different religions in the world, although these may be variously clustered. However, in an extensively secularized global civilization of considerable complexity, “pantheon” may in practice have other meanings — as with “religion” and “god”. Religion may then be extended to mean a pattern of fundamental beliefs. Any such religion may then be recognized as having one or more gods — and perhaps many.

Comparable Dynamics of Point, Bullet, Ball and Globe
Anthony Judge | Laetus in Praesens - TRANSCEND Media Service, 5 Apr 2021

Cognitive Significance of Systemic Similarities Conventionally Obscured – The question here is whether the cognitive engagements with a point, a bullet, a ball and the globe have unexplored similarities. These may indeed be limited in many respects, but each may well function as a surrogate for the others in some contexts — which then merit clarification.

Transcending Psychosocial Polarization with Tensegrity
Anthony Judge | Laetus in Praesens - TRANSCEND Media Service, 22 Mar 2021

22 Mar 2021 – Biomimetic Clues to Collective Resilience and Unshackling Knowledge – This exploration follows from the preoccupation with the current level of poisonous polarization of psychosocial dynamics. Given the tensions between one or more polarized perspectives, reference is made to the potential role of tensegrity structures. “Tensegrity” being a combination of “tension” and “integrity”. Integrity of any kind — institutional, academic, or personal.

Framing Dynamic Transcendence of Simplistic Cognitive Polarization
Anthony Judge | Laetus in Praesens – TRANSCEND Media Service, 8 Mar 2021

8 Mar 2021 – History may well find it remarkable the extent to which the present period cultivates the pretence of the adequacy of binary distinctions. Arguably these have even been embodied in the technologies on which civilization is now so dependent. In the case of the computer, this is most evident in the on/off distinction of logic gates — ironically at a time when progress in quantum computing is revealing other practical possibilities.

Cognitive Encryption Enabling Collapse of Civilization
Anthony Judge | Laetus in Praesens - TRANSCEND Media Service, 22 Feb 2021

What level of encryption is used in the process of description? The art of encryption recognizes levels of ever greater complexity in order to ensure ever greater levels of secrecy and security — but for whom? What degree of encryption is associated with reference to “forest” or to “whale” in conventional strategic discourse? The question could be asked of problems such as “inequality” or of values such as “justice” or “peace”?

Dynamics of N-fold Integration of Disparate Cognitive Modalities
Anthony Judge | Laetus in Praesens - TRANSCEND Media Service, 15 Feb 2021

15 Feb 2021 – Faced with multiple crises and conflicts of every kind, the world is witness to appeals for unity on the part of leaders variously embroiled in such crises. Despite the gravitas with which these appeals are framed, they can be increasingly recognized as naive — in the light of past responses to such initiatives. The naivety with regard to simplistic understandings of unity is currently evident in the commentaries evoked.

Anthony Judge | Laetus in Praesens - TRANSCEND Media Service, 11 Jan 2021

Implications of Universal Vaccination–Voluntary or Otherwise – The question as to whether vaccination against COVID-19 should be voluntary or mandatory is now widely discussed. Increasingly any questions as to the value or dangers of such vaccination are framed as misinformation — if not deliberate disinformation and a feature of conspiracy theories, necessarily to be deprecated.

Living within a Self-engendered Simulation
Anthony Judge | Laetus in Praesens - TRANSCEND Media Service, 4 Jan 2021

4 Jan 2021 – There is an ongoing debate among scientists as to whether humanity and the planetary environment are best understood as part of a simulation developed and maintained by an advanced race of extraterrestrials. As a speculative argument, this offers one way of understanding why humanity has not been contacted by ETs — if humans could comprehend the form which such contact might take.

Let’s Get Real Clear on Any Responsibility for Imminent Global Disaster – In this exercise in clarification, mention of “Donald Trump” in titles of a selection of articles in the media is replaced by “American People” — for whom Trump is merely the current mouthpiece in political, legal, executive, and public relations terms.

21 Dec 2020 – There is now a rapidly emerging confluence of dynamics associated with the pandemic–usefully caricatured as a jabberplex. These include:

Jabbercovid from the Jabberplex
Anthony Judge | TRANSCEND Media Service, 7 Dec 2020

2 Dec 2020 – The divisive nature of public discourse, most obviously between political opponents, could now be seen as characterized by repeated attempts to “take a jab at each other”. Rather than any reference to the “chattering classes”, the associated processes might now be caricatured as a feature of the “jabbering classes” — with the military-industrial and medical-industrial complexes usefully caricatured as forming a “jabberplex”.

30 Nov 2020 – Clues to the Nature of a Global Reset – The World Economic Forum is proposing a Global Reset (or a Great Reset) as a form of panacea for the crises of global civilization.

Varieties of Tone of Voice and Engagement with Global Strategy
Anthony Judge | Laetus in Praesens – TRANSCEND Media Service, 16 Nov 2020

It has been estimated that 7 percent of meaning is communicated through the spoken word, 38 percent through tone of voice, and 55 percent through body language according to the 7-38-55 rule, which has been variously misinterpreted and subject to criticism, although considerable importance continues to be attached to tone-of-voice (irrespective of any rule and its relevance across cultures).

Transformation of a Civilization of Spikes and Penis Surrogates via Global Reset Mandalas ~~ In a period of crisis, which the conventions of global governance have been unable to address, much is now being made by elites of the need for a “Global Reset”, most notably articulated and promoted by the World Economic Forum and influential institutions at its annual Davos Forum. Use of “reset” is an appealing metaphor for techno-optimists who are typically inspired by familiarity with the ability to reset a computer rendered inoperable by one or more applications.

Anticipation of Judicial Inquisition of Humans by Extraterrestrials
Anthony Judge | Laetus in Praesens - TRANSCEND Media Service, 19 Oct 2020

Potential Consequence of Failure to Adhere to Universal Principles of Intelligent Life – The purpose of this exercise is to reframe the relation of humans to non-human species — as it may be perceived from an extraterrestrial perspective, now or in the future. Humans are naturally skilled in framing their treatment of animals — notably justified by particular interpretations of religious scriptures held to be beyond question, as with interpretations of the Bible regarding human dominion over all animals.

From Zoom Organization to Zome Configuration and Dynamics

The concern in what follows is the quest for indications as to how the communication potential of virtual conferences might be more fruitfully organized — beyond past patterns of enabling the many to listen to the few. Those patterns can be seen as strangely echoing concern about the global resources controlled by “the 1%”, in contrast with those to which the remainder have access.

Reconciling in 3D the Vitruvian Archetype with Sports Ball Curves – The speculation here is that the long-admired (and much-reproduced) Vitruvian Man, as famously depicted by Leonardo da Vinci in 1490, could be seen as apparently reinforcing a two-dimensional worldview — even though it is interpreted as implying and exemplifying what could be considered as a vital perspective on proportions in their more integrative global sense.

Baseball Cap Implications in the Quest for Global Hegemony
Anthony Judge | Laetus in Praesens - TRANSCEND Media Service, 20 Jul 2020

The existence of “evil” is now widely recognized by world leaders. However, so little is done to explore how the organization of the “demonic forces” might be comprehended — beyond the geometrical allusion to an Axis of Evil. Especially problematic is the degree to which those qualifying others as evil tend to be so qualified. Even more remarkable is the failure to clarify how the “angelic forces” are organized.

Spike-Endowed Global Civilization as COVID-19
Anthony Judge | Laetus in Praesens - TRANSCEND Media Service, 20 Apr 2020

The following argument explores the sense in which the very form of the virus effectively mirrors the nature of global civilization at this time. To an interesting degree it could be asked whether COVID-19 “is” global civilization — or whether global civilization “is” COVID-19. Like it or not, does the coronavirus effectively define the identity of global civilization as humanity has chosen to engender it?

Weaponising Mass Distraction from Overpopulation Denial?
Anthony Judge | Laetus in Praesens - TRANSCEND Media Service, 23 Mar 2020

The future may well marvel at the primary strategy advocated globally in response to the coronavirus pandemic, namely social distancing. The question here is the viability of social distancing on a planet on which overcrowding is already widely recognized — but as a purely local challenge. This is most evident in the restriction of access of tourists to popular destinations. The reality of local overcrowding is the theme of a separate argument which notes the total unreality of global implications

Future Commemoration of the Trial of Julian Assange

The concern is with the accumulation of clues to a dramatic commemoration of the process, inspired by the Passion Plays so widely used with respect to the Trial of Jesus. The focus here is however on identification of dramatic elements and processes which might serve to highlight the passion for truth, most obviously associated with investigative journalism, and to a lesser degree by other disciplines exposed to lesser risk.

19 Feb 2020 – The following items have been progressively accumulated as an addendum to an earlier document elaborated as a speculative dramatisation of the legal process against Julian Assange in several Christian countries.

Mysterious Complementarity between Capitalism and Arsenalism
Anthony Judge | Laetus in Praesens – TRANSCEND Media Service, 10 Feb 2020

10 Feb 2020 – The discourse between those in favour of capitalism and those critical of it is now a characteristic of those concerned with social progress in general. The criticism of alternatives variously proposed could be said to follow a similar pattern. Both “sides” are comfortable with their understanding of the appropriateness of their own perspective and the dangerously misinformed inefficacy of the other — readily extended to framing what is opposed as fundamentally “evil”.

Envisaging a Comprehensible Global Brain–as a Playful Organ
Anthony Judge | Laetus in Praesens – TRANSCEND Media Service, 2 Dec 2019

The argument follows from the controversial assertion recently made by President Macron of France with respect to the “brain death” of NATO and the potential implications for any “global brain”. The question that is obviously raised with respect to the brain metaphor is the nature of the “brain waves” which might be detectable as indicative of life and intelligence in any global collective such as the United Nations or in any “think tank” (originally termed a “brain box”).

Anthony Judge | Laetus in Praesens – TRANSCEND Media Service, 11 Nov 2019

11 Nov 2019 – The world has been confronted by the assertion by President Macron that NATO is “brain dead”. Rather than explore the case made with regard to NATO alone, the institutional problem recognized is far more fundamental and general. Given its coincidental timing, the assessment could then be readily dismissed as a riposte to the recent formal withdrawal of the US from the Paris Climate Change Agreement.

Anthony Judge | Laetus in Praesens – TRANSCEND Media Service, 14 Oct 2019

14 Oct 2019 – Toroidal Interweaving from I Ching to Supercomputers and Back? – There is no lack of references in the history of mathematics and computing to the role of the encoding of the I Ching in providing inspiration to Gottfied Leibniz in 1701 with regard to the development of binary logic, as variously noted.

Action Now: Insights from Greta Thunberg, Krishnamurti and Julian Assange as Leaders of Religions?
Anthony Judge | Laetus in Praesens – TRANSCEND Media Service, 7 Oct 2019

From the psychosocial systemic perspective, naively neglected by environmentalists, Climate Activism can be usefully compared with a new religion — something to believe in urgently, as being vital to the salvation of the planet. Those failing to do so, or acting otherwise, are then necessarily to be condemned.

Imagining Toroidal Life as a Sustainable Alternative
Anthony Judge | Laetus in Praesens – TRANSCEND Media Service, 9 Sep 2019

From Globalization to Toroidization or Back to Flatland? Much is made of the fundamental shift in historical perspective from living on a Flat Earth to dwelling on a rotating sphere — a globe revolving around the Sun. The argument here endeavours to clarify the manner in which the toroidal form can be used in support of imaginative insight of strategic relevance — for the individual, if not for the collective.

Global Coherence by Interrelating Disparate Strategic Patterns Dynamically
Anthony Judge | Laetus in Praesens – TRANSCEND Media Service, 19 Aug 2019

Any 16-fold pattern is a provocative challenge to comprehension, given the constraints on human capacity with respect to the complexity of any such pattern as a whole. This is especially the case when such a pattern is used by the United Nations to frame an overriding strategic preoccupation for global governance — with an explicit call for widespread credibility.

Coping Capacity of Governance as Dangerously Questionable
Anthony Judge | Laetus in Praesens – TRANSCEND Media Service, 5 Aug 2019

Recognizing Assumptions and Unasked Questions when Facing Crisis – The question here is whether the institutions of governance, and those attaching credibility to them, are capable of recognizing that there is every possibility that they are unable to cope.

Clarifying the Unexplored Dynamics of 12-fold Round Tables
Anthony Judge | Laetus in Praesens – TRANSCEND Media Service, 29 Jul 2019

29 Jul 2019 – This exploration follows from previous concern that, despite their symbolic importance, little effort has been made to clarify the possible dynamics between people of wisdom variously configured together at an archetypal “round table”. The issue is of continuing importance with respect to 12-person juries and the committees of the wise periodically convened in response to challenges of governance.

Ecological Mouthprint versus Ecological Footprint
Anthony Judge | Laetus in Praesens – TRANSCEND Media Service, 22 Jul 2019

22 Jul 2019 – Learning Action Avoidance from Rabbits in Anticipation of Disaster – Much is now made of assessments of carbon footprint, ecological footprint and climate footprint, and the strategies for their reduction in different situations. There is however a case for exploring the choice of the footprint metaphor given its associations with the most distant part of the human anatomy, however grounded it may be held to be — despite being necessarily left behind.

Civil Society Coalition for Cultivation of Short-term Bias
Anthony Judge | Laetus in Praesens – TRANSCEND Media Service, 1 Jul 2019

International Complicity in Avoidance of Consideration of Long-term Human Suffering – In a period when much is made of the consequences of evolution of global warming over the coming decades and to the end of the century — highlighted by extreme weather conditions — virtually nothing is discussed about the evolution of migration pressure over the decades to come. Whereas statistical estimates are available on the former, none are officially available on the latter.

Who to Blame: “Donald Trump” or the “American People”?
Anthony Judge | Laetus in Praesens – TRANSCEND Media Service, 13 May 2019

9 May 2019 – Donald Trump is the duly elected President of the USA — elected by the American People according to well-defined electoral procedures. It is currently irrelevant whether those procedures are in any way in question. Trump is therefore the legitimate representative of the American People.

Exploring Representation of the Tao in 3D
Anthony Judge | Laetus in Praesens – TRANSCEND Media Service, 1 Apr 2019

1 Apr 2019 – The Tao symbol is widely known as an indication of viable harmony between opposites — understood as a possibility for a mature human civilization of the future. There is extensive commentary on the subtlety of the insight it represents, dating most notably from that of Laozi in the Tao Te Ching. This explains that the Tao is not a ‘name’ for a ‘thing’ but the underlying natural order of the Universe whose ultimate essence is difficult to circumscribe due to it being non conceptual yet evident in one’s being of aliveness.
