This is my voice. If you are here listening, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
If you’ve been here before you know that I have a passion for RFT and science. I have spoken about my love of Rubik’s cubes, measurement, and quantum physics.
Let me show you how I began to walk this path. It will be difficult to share.
Parts of my life have been a bit too much like a Chuck Pallinuik book. Nothing making much sense or being reliable, but the unreliability. Chaos breeds a different type of focus, if you survive it.
Those that do find a way to survive, like I did, give purpose and find meaning in their deepest pains. RFT is the framework beyond most. If you have a purpose, it’s highly likely it can help you get there. If you don’t, it can help you find it.
Experiential contact has a way of making you aware, metaphorical has a way of gently guiding, and hierarchicals they give you a direction. They are the light at the end of the tunnel when life unceremoniously leaves you searching in the dark.
So, RFT is my swiss army knife of functionality and sense making.
Gone are my days of reading Kafka, Dostoyevsky, Dante’, Camus, and Pallinuik in pain, so I can briefly touch a hierarchical that brings existential crisis skipping only steps behind it.
Why? Because stories of giant beetles don’t do much for real world application. They are abstracted metaphorical frame networks that leave you with little to ‘do’.
Yes, yes, there is meaning there but I find myself a little defused and over connected with that creepy beetle.
All of these things show us through metaphor, twisting and winding, a framework. And yet, what can I do with a kafka-esque framework but believe it?
Sticky coherence that doesn’t apply well to reality is a framework for blindness through rule governed insensitivity. If a rule blocks your sensitivity, a network of rules is a blindfold.
As a scientist… that part of philosophy always pissed me off. So, I am like Sisypus? Pushing my rock up hill? Great. I can feel it, now what? Stop?
Obviously you’ve never met gravity.
You got a problem? RFT-it.
If it is something to do with people, thinking, or anything thinking people made… chances are RFT can tell you something meaningful about it.
It is a framework that is infinitely build-able, testable… no, not testable in the way of this “framing” is occurring in this particular moment. I’ll leave that to the basic researchers. My world is in application.
I came here to fix things. So, let’s get down to business people. The world has been waiting for us to walk the same direction. Let’s use a swiss army knife to strap these airy construct theories together and start moving some real change.
That. would. be. meaningful. That would be aware. That, could change the world.
