  1. Beyondchron isn’t telling the whole story about the cost

  2. Our foreign wars have had horrible and lasting consequences. We can’t see into anyone’s life sufficiently to have any inkling of what brought them to their present circumstances. But, boy, there sure are a lot of homeless guys on the street out there who are my age — Vietnam era — whose year or two of horror when they were kids of 18 or 19 must have made an enormous contribution to who they are today.

    I wonder, too, about criminal convictions from one’s youth — often for victimless crimes — how many people have that barrier to EVER finding decent employment? How many homeless are in that category?

    Perhaps it’s a good policy to borrow from some of the past century’s leading scientists, e.g. Einstein and David Bohm, who believed that the crazy phenomena observed at the quantum level are just as grounded in causal context as are macro-phenomena — it’s just that the quantum context is not yet adequately understood. They propose the notion that “hidden variables” will someday be found that generate these odd phenomena, just as observable variables generate macro-physical phenomena.

    However the current debate in physics turns out, maybe we could benefit from extending this notion of “hidden variables” to ourselves and others. The next time we see a homeless person on the street we could remind ourselves that hidden variables — that we can know nothing of — are contributing to his circumstances. Maybe we could drop the idea that some mysterious but inexplicable element of character — flawed will power, for instance — is responsible for the person’s homelessness, and, instead trust that there are real, causal reasons at work in him even though we can’t see what they are. If we posit “hidden variables” for the human attitudes and behaviors we see, our blame and shame game can finally come to an end. Hey, we lefties might even try extending this idea to right wing Republicans!

    EVERYTHING emerges out of context. ALL phenomena are consistent with their context in the way that the “figure” in an Escher drawing is consistent with the “ground.” One might say that the ground generates the figure. Maybe we could consider ourselves, and indeed all the phenomena of our reality as the “figures” of the elemental, generative “ground.” From the figure/ground perspective, there’s an important point to keep in mind: “Ground” generates “figure” with absolutely PERFECT fidelity. If we understand this how can we moralize, mock, or belittle others (the figures in the ground of reality)?

    If we want to play with mere words, we might call the ground, God. From all appearances, God is fearless, blossoming from ground to figure without concern for the pleasantness of the outcome. And, there appears to be NECESSITY to God’s business — the necessity to explore every moment as it blossoms into fruition in the next (as it moves from ground to figure), be that next moment good, bad, or ugly.

    I believe that simply understanding that reality unfolds inexorably from ground to figure CAN CHANGE THE VERY GROUND. I believe ugliness will be minimized in future unfoldings if we hold this broad view.

    We can start with the simple understanding that there are hidden variables within the life of every person. We can look upon the homeless differently. A shift in perspective can lead us to kinder attitudes towards others and ourselves.

  3. Such are in fact cool YouTube videos, its my luck to go to see this website A Savage Sausage Howls about SF’s Homeless and finding these awesome YouTube videos.
