Some topics I like that I think can really help people and the world:
I like to study virtue, but I don't necessarily believe in ritual.
It is disturbing when there are rigid thinkers telling people what to do
and think rather than positive possibility thinkers inspiring people to
understand how to be able to appreciate ways of life that are beneficial
and fair for all.
I like to study logic, particularly epistemology, as it is at the
foundation of everything.
I like creating multi-purpose adaptable tools, conceptually,
mathematically, and eventually physically, because they add abilities,
perspectives, methods, save time and effort, and in doing so they help
people. That is why I like robotics, intelligent agents on a software
grid, math formulas, mental machinery, and powerful concepts.
I like psychological enhancement, to get rid of cognitive
dissonance, self-defeating thinking patterns, bad habits, and to train
new skills. Psychology can optimize knowledge bases by gaining new
perspectives that can be used as useful ways to search your memory,
store new memories associatively, and for recombining data from your
memory to develop new and better understanding, as well as enhancing
your perception and awareness by knowing what to look for and by being
aware of areas and topics and things and relations and operations and
systems that might normally be overlooked. Psychology can help increase
intelligence (reasoning ability), hope, motivation, incentive; clarify
and harmonize expectations and emotions, and improve interpersonal
relationships and communication. 7/18/2005 Justin Coslor Applied
Spirituality Applied spirituality is very much like the axiomatic
deductive reasoning system in logic, because each person believes in a
set of spiritual axioms which shape their perceptions and
interpretations, decisions, and judgments, as they progressively shape
and adapt to modifiable and uncontrollable realities in their temporal
collection of experiences, memories, simulations, and navigations; both
physical and perceptual. Spirituality is mostly perceptual navigation
through modes of awareness and conceptual evolution: of concepts that
remain true when perceived of from any level of awareness. If concepts
remain true through different modes of awareness, then the truth is
metaphoric. Many spiritual truths are metaphoric, analogically, across
contexts. Copyright 6/20/2005 Justin Coslor A dream I had
A few months ago I had this very interesting dream where I was
hiking to a holy place with some friends and when we reached the ancient
sanctuary/shrine we removed several stone/nanotechnology cases, each one
containing a sample of the original strain of some grain and grain-like
foods: corn, wheat, flax, oat, homany, garbanzo beans, etc. They were
each in their own cryogenic case and we couldn't carry all of them and
dropped some on the trail down the mountainside because they were heavy
and bulky. We were carrying them back to base camp. The food samples in
each case were millions of years old, yet still fresh and alive, ready
for planting. After we got them back to camp we got inside some kind of
space craft and traveled through time to a period of civilization where
these plants were wiped out by genetic engineering and plant plagues,
and we planted them there. Note, we didn't manage to get all of them
there because we dropped some down the mountainside and there was great
urgency, but we got most of them to their destination. Then we traveled
back home in the ship, and the pilots took off and this glowing ghostly
time-travelling dragon-like god or alien or something thanked us and it
vanished up into the sky. We returned the remaining cases too before we
got home. I think we had to travel way back in time to get those
samples, then went way into the future, then went back to our original
time. It was a really neat dream. That dragon-being could shape-shift
too, and was very powerful, and I remember it being in another one of my
dreams which I can't remember right now. Copyright 6/14/2005 Justin
Coslor The Dreamworld
The worth of the mind is not its mundane existence in the waking
world (which is really the sleeping world -- a world people imprisoned
by limitations and thoughtless recursions); the true worth of the mind
is in the dream world, where there are unimaginable possibilities
manifesting together from parallel universes, past and future, often
meaningfully, as if communicated by higher powers for self discovery,
experimentation, and exploration of universal truths, with many
teachers, friends, lovers, and monsters interacting beyond our control.
Dreaming is not about controlling others or characters in the dreams,
it's about what we actually decide to do when placed in bizarre
situations. There need not be any purpose, but only to experience new
forms of perception and interaction. Sometimes it's merely rest, but
when our brain is activated fully on during R.E.M. sleep, our mental
frequencies, the time-frames of our cognition system, can resonate at
higher vibrations so that we can temporarily merge our consciousness
with higher dimensional planes where big ideas are anchor points in
temporal constructs, and we might share a moment with some advanced
beings, or meed some dead relatives who have resonated out of their
bodies. There might be portals to any moment or place in existence on
higher vibrational time-frames, where we are just a cup of espresso away
from Nirvana (or a R.E.M. siesta rather). High activation, Time
dilation, Quite a sensation, Deep contemplation. 7/5/2005 Justin Coslor
"Violence is not the way to anything but hell." 8/10/2005 Justin Coslor
The Philosophy of Nuclear War The philosophy of nuclear war is that “If
I can't have my way during my four year reign of leadership, then I'm
going to make the world a radioactive waste dump for the next 50,000
years.” Now that's selfish. Copyright 6/23/2005 Justin Coslor Bubble
Quote "You're either in a bubble or a cage." 6/20/2005 Justin Coslor The
Future
Maybe I should try inventing some new traditions. . . They could be
fun yet practical, and totally unenforcible. . .Like having a good
stretch every morning and evening, planting a tree every year, and a
garden if possible, mailing your old outdated consumer products to some
poor 3rd world country family, writing a poem every time something
special happens, writing your own book of prayers without crusading them
about, saving a percentage of your income, spending time each week in
the reference section of the library, not ever being violent under any
circumstances, manufacturing some of the things you need and use by
hand, etc.
Maybe make some good traditions of your own that'll come in handy in
the oncoming ice-age that we're long overdue for. . .global warming has
bought us a little bit of extra time before the poles flip and giant
icebergs ravage the landscape and dot the oceans south of the Arctic
Circle and enormous mountains will rise up in Antarctica and around the
tectonic plates, which will scoot around some, setting off volcanic
eruptions all around the ring of fire around the world, probably
earthquakes too occasionally, as always. Ask your local scientist.
Whatever, have a cup of coffee and build yourself a bomb shelter. Good
manners were invented for when times get tough. Be polite, honest,
humble, and compassionate to everyone. Always. Adapt. -- Justin Coslor
Copyright 7/7/2005 Justin Coslor Homo-Sapien Evolution
Maybe mankind evolved into the standing upright posture because
females have always generally preferred taller males to shorter ones,
since standing upright makes the male appear taller and thus bigger and
more capable of hunting and gathering and protecting the females and
young.
Copyright 6/13/2005 Justin Coslor Prizes
When people go from one kind of high or treat to another in life,
they keep on going despite any lows or mishaps that happen in between,
unless the mishaps convince the person that the whole chase just isn't
worth going playing anymore, in which they either commit suicide, change
their lifestyle, or get into psychiatric treatment. I believe that
suicide is murder, and I refuse to be a murderer under any
circumstances. In other situations, such as in the case of the soldier's
myth of “kill or be killed”, I believe that in the long run it's better
to die than to take the life of another.

Interconnected Galaxies
Paper topic/abstract: (I don't know if this theory already exists or
how to test it, but I do know that it works on a small scale, which is
the whole basis for instantaneous communication devices). Large scale
quantum-tunneling between the centers of the galaxies in the universe as
part of post-big-bang super-symmetric inverse quantum string theory, but
on a very large scale. If space holds a compression, the closer to the
center of a galaxy you go the deeper the rabbit hole gets. In other
words you can get to any other galaxy by going through the tunnel in the
center of the galaxy, which connects to the center of the universe,
where you can then just go down one of the tunnels leading in the
direction of one of the other galaxies. The next step after that is to
figure out how to access the network that links other plurality bubbles
(other universes), if such a network on that scale exists within the
Monality superstructure (the ordinal of existence) somehow. Copyright

compressions of space, an infinite none. Partitions of One spiral
through the none, A cosmic explosion, birthed zillions of suns. Galactic
shrapnel, each center a gate through time to the origin of infinite
fates. The inverse symmetries tunneled connections innate, from center
to Hub to center star gate.
Copyright 8/27/2005 Justin Coslor Pulsars
I think pulsars might be the smaller ends of worm-holes that are
rapidly untwisting their tube and spewing energy and matter out the end
as they flail around like a runaway fire hose. Worm- holes are spinning
black holes that are connected together in the form of a spinning tunnel
of compressed time-space. Naturally, if one end is much smaller than the
other it will flail around due to the energy rushing through it, and due
to the unraveling of the twist in the tube. Pulsars flash multicolored
light and are somewhat of a mystery. Copyright 5/31/2005 Justin Coslor
Freedom in Sleep Let all of the pain Just wash away With the tides of
breath. Submitting to the will of the Universe, I accept what is In life
and love -- But hope for what can be. 5/29/2005 Justin Coslor Good
Thinking V.S. Flawed Thinking The true crux of the eternal battle
between the actions and ideals of good versus the propagation of that
which is not, is long-term thinking V.S. short-term thinking. If
everyone thought on an extremely long time-frame in their decision
making (thus giving up the applicability of the self, i.e.
selflessness), past their own lifetime to far future generations ahead,
beyond all applicability, their decisions would be geared towards the
sustainable support of symbiotic life of all forms, especially friendly
highly intelligent life, and well-meaning respect for life forms that
are on different paths. Short-term thinking is flawed, and it paves the
way for more flawed thinking. Copyright 2/19/2005 Justin Coslor
Hollywood Quote Hollywood is very dangerous. They literally "program"
people's beliefs, intentions, expectations, and goals. 11/11/2004 Justin
Coslor Do magnets affect time? Time is probably relative to the kinds of
motion that a person or object is doing in physical and Platonic space
because time is a function of motion. I know that when I get inside a
Magnetic Resonance Imaging tube, the powerful superconducting magnets
make it feel like time slows down temporarily, and I can feel the Earth
turn under me. It's a little disorienting. Measuring Progress 11/8/2004
A person's progress is best measured recursively. 11/11/2004 Often over
several lifetimes. 10/28/2004 Justin Coslor Expectations People's
expectations need to be made more pliable and common belief of what is
truly important (such as self-mastery and preventing neglect) need to be
re-evaluated. 10/27/2004 Justin Coslor New Logic Operators Some kinds of
logic use the relations "AND", "OR", "NOT"; but maybe we could make
forms of logic that use the operators "UM", "ER", "UH", "AHA!", "AWE".
Example: 10 UH 10 UH 10 UH, ER, UM, 101010 AHA! 1110 AWE. 10/12/2004
Justin Coslor Motion Motion is the transposition of location from one
configuration to another. Time is a function of motion. 10/28/2004
Justin Coslor Time is only perceptible from a 3rd person perspective on
motion, where the observer's motion is not in parallel to the motion
(transpositions) of the locations (states, set theoretic configurations)
being observed. 1/7/2004 Justin Coslor Notes on the book "Connections:
The Geometric Bridge Between Art & Science" (this book is about Design
Science) Pg. 1. All good design should have: 1. Repetition - some
patterns should repeat continuously. 2. Harmony - parts should fit
together. 3. Variety - it should be non-monotonous (not completely
predictable). --------------------------- 1/10/2005 Notes on the book
Telepathy and the Etheric Vehicle by Alice A. Bailey page 13: 1.
Telepathic communication is
a. Between soul and mind
b. Between soul, mind, and brain
This is as far as interior individual development is concerned.
2. When it is found between individuals, telepathic communication is
a. Between soul and soul.
b. Between mind and mind.
c. Between solar plexus and solar plexus, and therefore purely
emotional.
d. Between all three of these aspects of energy simultaneously,
in the case of very advanced people.
3. Telepathic communication is also:
a. Between a Master and His disciples or disciple.
b. Between a Master and His group, and a group or groups of
sensitives and aspirants on the physical plane.
c. Between subjective and objective groups.
d. Between the occult Hierarchy and groups of disciples on the
physical plane. Occult literally means "hidden." Gnosis means
"hidden knowledge."
e. Between the Hierarchy and the New Group of world Servers in
order to reach humanity and lift it nearer the goal.
Page 3: There is a group of Thinkers that falls into the seven main
divisions and is presided over by three great Lives or super-conscious
Entities: the Manu, the Christ, and the Mahachohan. They work primarily
by influencing the minds of the Adepts and the initiates, who then
influence the disciples of the world, and these disciples each in his
own place and on his own responsibility work out their concept of the
plan and seek to give expression to it as far as possible. Page 5: 1.
Telepathy is possible through omnipresence. 2. The interplay of many
minds produces a unity of thought which is powerful enough to be
recognized by the brain. Page 14: 1. Instinctual telepathy 2. Mental

Copyright 8/13/2005 Justin Coslor Deep Thinking
Each person is like a unique antennae to the knowledge of the
universe, and a good adept can interconnect large groups of people
spread out over any distance (but local is best), into a gigantic
antennae to knowledge in the universe, especially when cosmic thinkers
are involved.
There are only about six degrees of separation between everybody on
earth; that's a network six node levels deep. Likely one can also
interconnect dead people and other forms of life on various planes and
remote view a search net around distant galaxies. It seems though that
the bottleneck is on methodologies of perception such as language and
logics and common ground with other contexts that are based on different
sets of axioms than the seeker/observer is aware of. Clarity and
perceived/believed utility are also issues. 10/02/2002 Justin Coslor On

In the diagram I drew in 2004 about "One Possible Order Of The
Development of Friendly Intelligence", the concept of Monality is the
Realm of God, and plurality is the realm of lesser gods (as subsets, or
rather partitions of Monality). Monality is infinite oneness; it's all
pure energy without space or partitions. It's ultimate
interconnectivity, and is the Hub and Vessel of everything. Throw in
some partitions or space and you have plurality, which is
differentiation and multiplicity. Plurality exists as a network of
bubbles inside Monality, each one containing infrastructure that is made
of partitions of Monality. God and gods are Intelligences, capable of
creating, destroying, harmonizing, and experimenting through any level
of plurality through the medium of the Monality of their existence.
Probably a lot more too. Location and size are mere variables of ideas
and are only comparisons between some perspectives.
Copyright 8/28/2005
Justin Coslor What I Believe
I believe that God exists in omnipresent Monality; partitions of
which all things are composed of in this particular bubble in the
Monality that our universe and possibly others exist within. Monality is
pure energy with no space and no partitions (oneness). Life forms on
this plane and others are configurations of Monality. Life forms are of
innate design coupled with the design of the effects of our decision
making processes throughout our life, and our configurations are also
influenced by the interactions with rest of our environments
(nature/nurture). It takes a bit of epistemological logic and physics
and philosophy to see the reasoning behind all that. Everything I just
write is just an approximation though because all truth is but an
approximation of a deeper truth. Sometimes I'm wrong too. Justin Coslor
Friday, November 12, 2004 Life Rule of Thumb :: Love and Forgiveness
Current mood: thoughtful Life Rule of Thumb This rule of thumb is as
true for life in general as it is for medicine: 1. First, do no harm. 2.
Next, take the route that will do the most good in the long term.
(Always assume there's going to be a long term. Just think cosmic. Look
up into the sky and wonder, and stay positive.) 3. If things aren't
currently working, search for more possibilities, ask for help, and
figure out why. Meditate on it. Deep Prayer is a form of Meditation that
works and can be utilized to help understand things. Science is good
too. Like for carefully perceiving, finding, and manipulating the
building blocks of translatable, augmentable, and adaptable patterns in
contexts. Also, pass on well-intended strategies that work. Also, don't
ever use religion as an excuse to treat people, anyone, or anybody
badly. -------------------------------------------------- Love and

Metaphors are geometrical, in a sense, that is to say they follow
mathematical geometries. That is to say, metaphors can be thought of in
terms of geometrical patterns and systems.
---------------------------------- Clairvoyance is the ability to see
patterns within unknown contexts, where the patterns' contexts contain
unknown variables. That is what makes the contexts unknown.
---------------------------------- The opposite of love is not hate. The
opposite of love is doubt. Hate is a subset of fear. Fear is a subset of
doubt. Fear comes from a doubt in one's expectations of something, or a
doubt in the position of a game theoretic situation. Anger is a subset
of fear in some cases because it comes from fear of the unknown or fear
of one's own doubt. In other cases anger is a reaction to disrespect,
where one fears that another does not respect them (or fears that
another does not respect themselves or others), and thus does not love
or appreciate them, (love and appreciation are the same thing, but in
varying degrees and ways) because disrespect is rooted in doubt and is
sometimes also linked to fear. One may not have to appreciate or love
something to respect it, but in order to love certain qualities of
something, one must be able to appreciate those qualities (often through
understanding more about them, that's why understanding of good
qualities enhances our ability to recognize and appreciate them in
others (and even learn to find them in ourselves)), though what is good
for one person is not necessarily good or as good for another person).
We all live different versions of the same basic life. Forgiveness is
the permanent action (and decision) of not being angry at someone
(including oneself). In other words, forgiveness is the forgetting of
the painful emotions and judgments brought about by the misdeeds, and
re-framing the memory of the actions themselves into a more
understanding context. A key component of the forgiveness mechanism is
NOT HOLDING A GRUDGE, and adapting ones' own perceptual model to make
true forgiveness possible, and this character-building adaptation is a
form of positive growth, and the adaptation is a virtuous act in itself.
Unforgivingness and unforgiving attitudes create unbounded hostility
that blocks the flow of love, and prevents the healing process from
balancing and proceeding. The intention of forgiveness is to erase
hostilities, and enhance the flow of love. The old saying "Forgive &
Forget" should be "Forgive, Adapt, and Forget". Part of forgiveness is
acceptance for what is, and faith in what can be. When a person adapts,
it is usually much easier to avoid conflict and mishap. Repentance on
the other's part often feels like it is necessary, but repentance takes
time and gradual rebuilding of trust (trust being the foundation of
love), though forgiveness on the victim's part can help motivate the
other person to repent through natural guilt motivation. Forgiving
without negative reaction or provocation, subconsciously tells the
offender that you care about them on a spiritual level regardless of
what they have done to you (that is to say, forgiving them on a very
deep and personal level, which for the moment brings you as close to
them as someone they care dearly about), and that often makes them feel
as bad about hurting you as they would about hurting someone they care
deeply about -as someone who would be capable of understanding them as a
person. At the end of the day, we're all just people. The closeness is
temporal, but the memory of the virtuous act will stick with them and
slowly spiritually guide them towards positive change. These efforts are
progressive and lead towards changing them into a person who is worthy
of such forgiveness. A superficial forgiveness act can be as simple as
shrugging something off instead of placing high priority on your
temporally disrupted sense of trust. The state of one's sense of trust
in a person or group or situation is a major source of emotional
emanations, and events can be looked at simply as information (as the
Stoics taught). Once learned, the skill of forgiveness is so powerful
that it can shine as the most defining element of one's spirit. When
people don't know how to live well, or intensely and deeply why, or
what's going on, then all they can be expected to do is make mistakes.
And as a result, people needlessly suffer and cause unnecessary
suffering, due to their lack of well-intended in-depth questioning. It's
imperative that everyone ask the hard questions, and constantly delve
into critical thinking, so that they can actively seek and find those
profound answers sufficiently. In-depth questioning and intelligent
humble search yields the path of the ultimate quest: to find the ways of
life. That's why enlightenment is such a high priority, because the
enlightened can help to shape the universe lovingly. Love and Logic
(especially wise loving logic), are the greatest of Lore. They are the
primary operators of Truth through the medium of experience. Respect is
acceptance for what is. Repentance is a changing of one's ways to that
which is loving and harmonious, or at least respectful. Love and
forgiveness heals spiritual wounds. Unconditional love requires
unconditional appreciation for some qualities of someone or something,
even if it's just the quality that they appreciate you unconditionally.
I believe that it is everyone's obligation in life to known themselves
and learn about who they are, and as Mahatma Gandhi's nephew once said,
"become the truth that you seek". It is also important to have
acceptance for the parts that you don't love so much, and to try to have
unconditional forgiveness for any and all misdeeds and negative events
of the past. This feat is possible if a person knows themselves well.
Know all the good that you can possibly know, and you'll be well on your
way towards doing good and living well. So the big question is: "Should
forgiveness be dependent on repentance (thus dependent on personal
growth)?" The Prophetic Christ Messiah, Rabbi Jesus of Nazareth, Israel,
commanded (nearly 2000 years ago), that we forgive so that we may be
forgiven by God. Yet despite the obvious disadvantages, many sects of
the Jewish and Islamic faiths have stuck with the "eye for an eye, tooth
for a tooth" philosophy for thousands of years. Though too many
so-called "Christians" have done no better in wartime as well as on a
day-today basis. So many people unfortunately cling to fading allusions
of purity, righteousness, and belief in the rite to avenge (the rite of
revenge), as an excuse to treat each other badly (including their own
people) and murder each other in "wars". I don't care how people try to
justify it, or what kind of merit badges they hand out; killing people
is murder, any way you look at it, and in every situation, killing
people is murder. It is so painfully obvious that the only true
sanctuary and justice is through selfless virtue, which is only
attainable on an individual level, and discovering that paradise is
within oneself, not in their surroundings, but in the nature of their
connection to the universe itself. The world is long overdue for an
update by advanced beings, since it seems to be currently controlled by
the manipulative misinforming public media, the individual egos of
various predatory authority figures, and a minority of rich nonelect.
Let's work together to make the world a better place, and to lay stable
foundations for the sustainability of future generations on Earth.

---------- Violence is not the way, and two wrongs do not make a right.
Oh, btw, most of the Gospels written about Jesus were either burned or
rewritten by the Cathars, er, I mean the Catholic Church...So don't
assume that you know what true Christianity is all about unless you're a
psychic metaphysician or something. Regardless of whether or not you
feel the need for a messiah, or believe in the concept of one, there's a
lot of useful wisdom in scripture from many religions and meditations,
and that's what's most important. Nobody is perfect, since life is an
interconnected cyclic progression; and nobody is 100 percent correct
about everything, since all perspectives are but an approximation of the
whole Truth; but the gems shine through, and can be learned. There have
been prophets living on the Earth at all times in human history, whether
or not people notice them, and regardless of which path to God the
people and the prophets themselves choose to take or acknowledge. Nobody
is inherently better than anybody else under God, because a person can
only truly be compared to themselves, and a person's progress is best
measured recursively, often over several lifetimes. We must all be
humble. Virtue is a gift of intelligent choice that one decides to give
to themselves. It cannot be bought, it cannot be sold, and it certainly
cannot be handed down, but can merely be laid out in part by example and
through education of good wisdom, as an option to consider for oneself.
Some ways just work better than others, and of the ways that work, some
ways work better than other ways for certain people. People eventually
figure out the ways that support life (hopefully), often with a little
help from a friend. The gist of the Creation V.S. Evolution debate to me
is that creation implies genetic engineering, whereas evolution implies
natural selection over long periods of time. Either way, it's survival
of the fittest, but genetic engineering is largely based on the genetic
expression of traits that arose through natural selection, that have
then been pieced together to make a hybrid life-form. I believe that
both occurred in our development. People often are too concerned with
their physical forms, as opposed to their spiritual progress, and this
debate is a perfect example. Reincarnation does occur until the
end-time, however nobody knows when that may be, or even whether or not
they will be granted a chance to reincarnate.

"There are three things you need to be happy in life: Something to do,
Someone to love, and Something to look forward to." Justin Coslor
04/24/2005 More thoughts on the philosophy of love... "Doubt not, and
your love will be unconditional." Excerpts from Justin's Journal
4/8/2004 In any complex situation, I think this is a good rule to stick
to: Prepare for the worst, Hope for the best, Allow plenty of room for
the unexpected, and Know what to do next. 5/5/2004 Almost any given
moment can be a decision point, and at every waking moment we are
subconsciously and/or consciously either acting out old intentions, or
enacting new intentions. It is very important to be mindful of our
intentions in stressful situations, and not to allow our subconscious
(or conscious) intentions to in any way hinder or suppress the free will
of others. It is also important to nurture good intent in ourselves and
others, and to consciously guide the focus back into the range of good
intent whenever it gets very far off track. Positive thinking goes a
long way, but it should always be coupled with good intent towards all
parties in order to solve problems in the long run. Positive thinking +
good intent = answers.
-Justin Coslor 8/7/2005 Justin Coslor Appreciation We need to
try to be worthy of all of the effort that God went to to create us and
to allow us to exist in His universe. The universe is an unfathomably
gigantic and mostly empty space (on this vibrational plane of
time/motion), full of ridiculously powerful forces and chaos, and the
best that we can hope for is the sustainable evolution of symbiotic
life, and to make friends along the way. 8/8/2005 Eventually everyone
will be as smart as the geniuses of today, and much smarter as we evolve
together in many ways. 8/8/2005 Humans have only been around for a
minuscule fraction of the time-line of life on Earth, and as such we're
still an unproven and rather experimental form of life, but we have a
lot of potential and a long way to go. 4/30/2005 Justin Coslor Paper
topic: Ways to heighten interest and ways of inspiring motivation. -->
Re-map expectations Dangle a carrot over core knowledge bases Be
friendly, helpful, and set a good example. Support eternal questioning,
but not eternal doubting. Inquiry needs to be free of judgments and
rigidity. Perspective is retrospective. Truth is found as patterns in
contexts. Motivation is a balance of hope and incentive. Keep values in
mind and alive; meaning value all seekers of truth, the journey, the
accomplishments and milestones, and the lessons learned preemptively and
from mistakes and hardship of chance. Add more later. . .write a paper.
5/1/2005 --> The purpose of life is to survive and evolve, but the
higher purpose of life is to find and share appreciation. To appreciate
and to be appreciated, to find and share insight: that is the basis of
value. 1-16-2005 Justin Coslor Here's one of my philosophies:
"Motivation is dependent on inspiration, hope of success, and incentive
to do whatever there is to be done." 11-24-2003 Justin Coslor.

only that are compatible with this essay. Please: this is never ever to
be used whatsoever for treating anyone or anything badly. I believe I
can and will evolve my ethics to the point where no one is able to upset
me without anyone treating me badly. I think the key is in never
treating anyone badly whatsoever and in always treating everyone well
and being Stoic to negativity and ignorance and harm against me by
treating such abuse and short-term flawed thinking merely as information
which can be upgraded via education into positive long-term thinking and
well-meaning behavior that has positive results for everyone and no
negative repercussions for anyone and that is fair and honest and kind
and helpful and peaceful and non-harmful and humble and compassionate
and egalitarian and friendly to everyone and everything, and logical and
unselfish in the long term, the short term, and all of the moments in
between in all imaginable contexts, including other peoples. Also I
believe that it is essential to try to see the best in everyone and in
everything and to try to be at my best so that there is a better chance
of a smooth transition and of bringing out the best in everyone and of
bringing about harmony, love, truth, logic, and great positive
possibilities and realities.

Some miscellaneous writing:
SUSPICION IS THE DOWNFALL OF MANY
WITHOUT PRIVACY THERE IS NO FREEDOM
WITHOUT FREEDOM THERE IS NO LIBERTY
WITHOUT LIBERTY THERE ARE NO TOOLS
WITHOUT TOOLS THERE IS NO LIFE
EVEN OUR SPIRITS AND MINDS AND BODIES ARE TOOLS
ALL LIFE IS AND MAKES AND USES TOOLS
There is Wisdom in many places
from many times, many spaces.
All the world is just one world
no less important than another.
Wisdom comes from God and knowledge is translated wisdom.
Ethics is knowledge that should be tested shared and taught;
never construed for abuse and never violently fought.
Negative assumptions should be challenged at heart
by long-term positive perspectives to redo their start.
Perspective is introspective and retrospective,
an inspirational directive.
A context is a continuum of perspective,
as a network of patterns.
A pattern is a network of adjectives,
as a network of symmetry and synchronicity.
Information is a symphony of symbolism and symmetry.
Sometimes ideas come before their understanding.
Ideas that are understood form a continuum of perspective.
Positivity is harmony with peace at its core,
merciful and compassionate and honest and humble and more.
There is always more as that is what ideas are for.
Mistakes come from short term thinking such as selfishness and harm.
To be supportive is to be trusting, appreciative, hopeful, and warm.
It is essential to always be honest and not rude.
If these ideas are forgotten this life may seem crude.
To do unto others as you would have others do unto you
is to treat everyone well so that there can be sanctuary for all.
Each home is important and is as important as every other.
Each person is important and is as important as every other.
Diversity is essential and is like a university.
Together we learn to avoid temptations such as anger and lust and greed.
Even before we do, the Universe knows exactly what we need.
Each of us is an origin, a destination, and a seed of hope.

Tomographic Introspection
by Justin Coslor 3/23/2007

Axons, Gleons, Circuitry.
Axioms, Glue, Contextuality.
Happy as a clam
but not a clam ::
PERL, LISP, ontologies.
Question mapped epistemologies.
Picturesque words and pictograms,
Pre-possibility collections,
Intentional prioritized connections,
Enhanced pattern recollections,
Computable formalized directions
of top quality pureed nonsense.
Yum.

Happy Day!

This is one of the happiest days of my life. I love mathematics! More than that though I love life and have immense hope for everyone and everything. Positive Long-Term Possibility Thinking has been a tremendous success, and I've had a lot of fun writing my book: "Possibility Thinking: Explorations in Logic and Thought" now I need to start developing some of the ideas into applications and work more on editing the book (especially getting it all typed up, since I like to write out essays by hand first to have a rough draft hard copy, since I've lost emails and maybe other writing in the past due to buggy software and whatnot).
