How do I handle exhaustion, and 'the new needed now'.

Headline: How do I handle exhaustion, and ‘the new needed now’.
This may appear disjointed, but it tries to put time and times ‘in joint’. (Hat Tip, ‘Van and Bonnie,’ who tried to be ‘in whack,’ not ‘out of whack’.)
The Time Jointer Tool is the new needed now, discovered during Ruth EAT Moby Sheba.
How do I handle my exhaustion? I sleep a lot. 
And, as the patient/CEO (‘The Patient as CEO’ book) my staff works on it.  Further, I’ve (Providentially?) been moved to seek only one newness a week, with the Heurasm Calendar, the needed new now—a prayer.  This week (3 weeks of Eliot Anselm Time) it seems to have come down to a timing art work. 
(The atheist Howard—NOT Harold—Bloom of ‘Genius of the Beast: A Revisioning of Capitalism’ has written about tuned empathy and saturated intuition). Fleshing that out, the timing tool would be something like double-entry bookkeeping, or the periodic table, etc.  A generality made flesh.
 The example is this: When is it time to take on the other Axial Age institutions?  The book of Ruth tells us when it was time for Moab to join Israel. The Greeks, well, we have a hintro (introductory hint) in RJR’s statement in ‘Politics of Guilt and Pity’ that history is God’ theater.  This is a counterpoint perspective to theater as the ‘out’ of the Greeks, as ERH said. But that’s not a ‘periodic table’ tool. Nor is the I Ching (Confucius era?) as a 2-4-8-16-32-64 binarity, and as for Buddha, all I have so far is a day of the week, a la the retuning of the planets—Sun, Moon, etc. echoing Rev. 5:12-7:12’s picturing of the Ascension. Confucius’ ‘Rectification of Names’ and Codevilla’s ‘Political Correctness’ analysis may indicate something, Time Jointer-wise.
So, some new type of speech awaits (‘scientist’ coined 1813, or 1831), and some new type of persons, some new institution, some new planetary service, as Gardner’s ‘someary’ (summary of some) of ERH’s portrayal (intended theater reference) of the revolution of the West helps us, in his (Gardner’s) Chapter 5 of ‘Beyond Belief’. Add to that next CORAM (year, Celebration Of Resurrection Anno Mundi) more of JBJ’s 3—firstly,maturity (what must we do to mature to ‘eat’ –pun intended—the Axial Age (yes, we eat time) into Christendom, and secondly, redemptive history, and thirdly, the holy war against the devil and his angels (‘the devil is God’s devil’: Luther)?
Eliot: ‘We shall not cease from exploring (wandering), and the end of our exploring will be to arrive back at where we started, and to know the place (‘topos’ is pregnant here) for the first time.  Anselm: God is greater than we can possibly imagine—thus intercalation. Thus, the final 49 days before Pascha/Pesach/Resurrection/Easter, we go, each day in order, through the 49 books of JBJ’s literarily-conceived Bible (‘Rethinking the Order of the Old Testament—1995!), in the BuildUp (we started with a 70 of CountDown), while at the same time we re-retune the first 7 books, 1234567/4152637/7531642, so that Exodus in the last week before His ‘exodos’/demise.
One answer to political correctness is toward true speech, an oath-engenderment each 7, a sheba. I vow to continue to seek a better flowering of such true speech, where one’s life is put behind one’s words, as ERH said once, as he was saying the America was losing the ability to speak.
This prayer is a form of poiema.

Mobys. Let's do it this week!

Dear Gentles:
Mobys. Let’s do it this week!
What say you?
Take the list of 49 from JBJ’s work below, ‘Rethinking…’. Respond with a Moby or several for each.
--Background
I've been struck with exhaustion. 'Let's turn this liability into an asset,' I thought--'It'll be a mark of the Christian Era'  (ERH).

That being said, I've been thrown by this exhaustion into doing something basic, and at the right time. Mobys.

You can help my feeble efforts. I'll explain.

A 'Moby' is a book, or work of art, or event, that bears a similar relationship to one of the 49 books of the Bible  in JBJ's 'Rethinking the Order of the Old Testament' that Moby Dick has to Leviticus, as JBJ mentioned on an audio.

I've made this finding Mobys into a year-long (Pesach to Pesach, Pascha, Resurrection, Easter)) quest.  I'll write up this calendar soon, but for right now, we know enough to begin.

WHAT I'M REQUESTING (IMPERATIVING) IS A MOBY FOR EACH OF THE 49 BOOKS, FROM YOU ALL.

I propose these as examples only. Improvements will be made:

For Samuel, Michael Flynn's 'In the Country of the Blind'. This is set in an alternative America--or is it--in which Asimov's psychohistory

Is used in secret by what we find out are many groups, each of which initially thinks it is the only one manipulating society by mathematical knowledge of large group trends. They are seen to be violent.  In the end, the surviving group does music.
OK, Song. (Song of Solomon). At least two possibilities: The Great Conversation that deciphered it, even as to who speaks when. Wikipedia is a prime synchronous example. And, secondly, my own ‘symphony’ work, based on ERH’s ‘symphony of history’—‘Fruit of Lips’ and elsewhere. This is fortified by Dorsey’s comment that ‘Song’ exhibits an equality of speaking. Thanks, Mae Hartman. (Two different times, mother left children –3 each time—with Mom, knowing she’d take care of them. A kind of equality)
Job. The key thing here is to see that there is much more about Job than, e. g., ‘Song’. This shows something about ‘our’ culture, and the possible use of the ‘Jubilee’ 7x7 of JBJ (see Jesus’ first recorded words about this prophecy being fulfilled in their ears, as he read from Is. 61, referring to Lev. 25, and the period of years of Jubilee’s coming). Evangelistically, and Discipling-wise, what is the ‘shape’ of the culture/nation being disciple? The individual? How reach through echoes.
Thus, the extra-sized snout of a pig, when drawn according to the number of sense organs in an area of the body, in ‘The Body Has a Mind of Its Own,’ and consider all the body part descriptions in the Bible.
But T. Hatfield recommended to me on social media that ‘Tree of Life’ and Dr. Leithart’s book on it was a Moby for Job.
--
Note: In HOST (House Of Singing Times) a calendar that is narrative in ERH’s 5-step revolutionary sequence [Evaluation in JBJ’s] this is Ruth Week(s), which are shortened or lengthened so that we can do the last 49 days before Resurrection as a BuildUp, while the CountDown heads toward Exodus, because of retuning the retuning.  Eliot Anselm Time (AT—and we do eat time, surely). Eliot’s ‘We shall not cease from exploring (wandering), and at the end, we shall arrive back at where we started, and know the place (I like ‘topos’ for this) for the first time,’ and Anselm’s ‘God is greater than we can conceive’.
So, this year (CORAM) we work on Mobys. In other corams we might use EKS’ resource for learning Hebrew, since it has the whole book of Ruth in it.
Or we might study the law of assimiliation, for Ruth was not an Israelite, yet Boaz was some kind of kinsman-redeemer?
--
More possible Mobys. For Hebrews—Don’t fail to enter into this greater salvation!—something similar to the great ‘Abundance’ (book by that name too) that we have, and the greatest evangelical movement since the 3rd century, one says—it’s in the 3rd world.  And how did this come about? McCloskey, Cochrane, etc. Shroedinger’s Cat as the failure of na├»ve correspondence theories of truth, and Goedel’s Incompleteness work does something similar to non-contradiction, so comprehensiveness unto beauty and deep comedy/joking comes forth?
For Jeremiah, the Great Diaspora of Mao in China in 1949, as the earlier led to synagogues for Paul’s missionary work, Mao’s might lead to the largest Christian nation on earth. Dr. Bledsoe has referenced a book in which it is stated that leading Chinese are (already) Christian, and that when they studied how the West became prosperous, the answer was: Christianity.
Exodus—there are many. Transhumanism (‘We will have bodies like His’), Mars and farther out colonization, use of the seas, earthships self-sufficiently making uninhabitable areas, habitable…
The Twelve?  Do a Tune of The Twelve.  Put the chronological sequence on an octave, and then play it in the theological sequence in the Bible.  Length of notes could be length of books, or space of years between. Develop as the 4 notes of Beethoven’s Fifth are developed.
But what say you?
Take the list of 49 from JBJ’s work above, ‘Rethinking…’. Respond with a Moby or several for each.

Thanks!

Love in King Jesus,

The Shape of the Body of Society

Dear Gentle Ones:

The Shapes of the Body of Society--7x7 Books and 'The Body Has A Mind Of Its Own'

As I've traveled thorough JBJ's 7x7 Bible from 'Rethinking the Order of the Old Testament' I've noticed that there's more emphasis currently on Job, than on Song or Samuel.

This reminds me of the pictures of animals in 'The Body Has A Mind Of Its Own'. A pig, for instnace, with it parts proportionate to the size of the sensory apparatus, has a much bigger snout--it has more input fromthe snout.

There are sculptures with very big hands for a man, also.

So, our society at this time would have much more space in the 7x7 given to the book of Job, than to Song or Samuel.

This could be valuable in discipling nations!

A second thought is that ERH's 4 fronts are such that too much emphasis on inward is mysticism, on backward is decadence, on outward is war and on forward is revolution.

Now, thirdly, JBJ opined once that a new translation of Leviticus is sorely needed.

Fourthly, any 'body' could be helped by these analyses. Example: a congregation, a town, a city.

As corams (celebrations of resurrection anno mundi) come along, more of this will be done, Lord willing.

Love in King Jesus,

Charlie 'typing to find my better b/p awake at night' Hartman
PS: Compare with the 10x10 in Hall's 'The Silent Language,' and the periodic table.

Deep Joking

Deep Joking

A joke works because it unites two worlds, two perspectives, while showing them to be apart.  A pastor/leader who can't tell a joke should not be , has not been, called. He doesn't have tone maturity, timing, who can't tell a joke.
--
A coarse joke I've been telling recently has caused people to whom I mention it again to burst out laughing on this re-mention.  And one person came up to me days later and thanked me for it, and another, saying 'They've been bouncing around my head for two days'.

Job; Finding the needed new now, and two Mobys

Dear Gentle Ones:

Heurasm Report: Job is the Leviticus of Exodus? And two 'Mobys'

This year, I'm concentrating on what art work is to each book of the Bible (one per week) as JBJ mentined once that 'Moby Dick' is to Leviticus.

For Samuel, I'm going with, so far--unless someone comes up with a better, Flynn's 'In the Country of the Blind' for Samuel. ITCOTB puts Asimov's psychohistory into an alternate America that is very much like ours. Various grroups, we learn in the courseof the novel, are trying to mathematically manipulate society. They end up killing eachother, mostly, and the a group that survives is shown in a musical session, one and many, at the end. Thus David at the end of 2 Samuel conducted a census. And we remember David the psalmist, and some of his last words were Psalm-like.

For Song (of Solomon) I think the Great Conversation. I'm following Bullinger's reconstruction of who is speaking when, and it appears to me that many reverent ones must have worked to get to this understanding--if it's close to an option--from the Hebrew which did not even have spaces between words, chapters, or   verses.

And now for 'Job is the Leviticus of Exodus'. JBJ's wonderful work 'Rethinking the Order of the Old Testament' uses a 7x7 grid for the 49 books of the Bible, literarily conceived. The first 7 are along the top, and they could be seen to go along the side also.  Think the periodic table, and E. T. Hall's grid of society in 'The Silent Language'.

The second set of 7, that one could call, thus, the 'Exodus' 7, has Job in the 3rd position.

Much good thinking can be found here.  How is Job Levitical (sacrificial?).  How do the other 3s relate, etc.

For instance, the short Philemon is the 7th iteration of Joshua.  How is this a conquest, a conquest of slavery, by rhetoric. (Hat Tip for some of this to Ericrobinson).

I'll have a Moby for Job by the end of the week (sheba=7, ,oath), Lord willing. I call the year (Resurrection to Resurrection) CORAM, a pun/acrostic, for 'coram' is 'face, presence' in Latin, and Celebration Of Resurrection Anno Mundi is the phrase that makes an acrostic.

I pray that The Great Cnversation will continue with other responses to this 8 (layer of responses) in the form of Rosenstock's 4 -- new types of speech, new types of persons, new institutions, new planetary service--and James Jordan's 3 --maturity, redemptive history, the holy war against the devil and his angels. Theus we'll heurasmically find the needed new now.

Love in King Jesus,

Charlie 'anthropological responder' Hartman

Samuel Week/Sheba A.D.2017 (SmyrnaCORAM861)

Samuel Sheba
Dear Gentles, and those of K.O.L.CORAM877:
What's happened with Samuel week (Sheba). For Rosetta Stone purposes, it’s Samuel Week/Sheba A.D.2017 (SmyrnaCORAM861) .
Remember, I'm just learning this, and hoping to the Sheldrakean rats who learn the maze on the island.
1--I need to know more about how Samuel was written, for Samuel dies in the middle.
2--From the bookends, it appears that failure is followed by hope--and it's about kingship and 'too-soon-ness'.
(Hannah fails of childbirth, but is given children. David fails at the ends, but buys the threshing floor).
3--What new types of speech? I'm still working on 'heurasm'--finding the needed new now. Types of persons? If there's no Moby Dick for Samuel as Leviticus, someone will be needed to find such work of art, and the list of types of writing on the Wikipedia page for 'sonnet' will be helpful. (TSOCHI should be in there--it's only an elaboration of the Hebrew word form for 'we do it to each other,' with an admixture of gestalt/Chinese characters? And JBJ's 7x7 is, in a good way, like unto a symbol for Jubilee?)
4--What new institutions? A study of political works on the rise of authority would be good. 'All the King's Men,' 'The Godfather,' etc.
5--What planetary service? Folding all my 'herovolution' work (search chuckhartmanhistoryconductor) into the Calendar of Peace (ERH's last work, ,'Planetary Service'--the 2 chapters on pirates, would be worthwhile. A pirate is outside the present governing structures. Secondly, a sonnet with acrostic starts of verses (good cage good?) and Hebrew Cadence (the number of words repeated, Cascione 'Repetition in the Bible) with wordplays on tired, tiered, re-tired, dirt t, retied, etc. could help)
6--Maturation, you have to elevate your game to do the above, in redemptive history (the stage now is that we live in calendars that are remnants of past social orders--that must be acknowledged and dealt with, or they come back to bite us harder--as academic/Greek, work/business/Empires, ecclesiastical/Israel, community celebrations/tribes. Thus, the Holy War against the devil and his angels (I add Luther's : the devil is God's devil). These 3 from one of Dr. Leithart's works, and JBJ's).
7--You see that Sunday-Monday only has 7 entries, yet K.O.L adds an 8th, self-consciously including earth, us, our planet/wanderer. So by retuning the retuning of JBJ's Revelation commentary on 5:12-7:12, picturing the Ascension, we mature. K as in God 'kol-ed' from Sinai (though ours is Beatitudinal), O as in Octave, 8th Day, and L retains Laodicea, for all days are named in this retuned retuning, not for planets/gods thereof, but for history until the Resurrection, the 7 churches in Revelation which are about the 7 ages.
8--Thus we continue with Song. Maybe The Song of The Twelve will be given voice, and other meta-songs?
Love in King Jesus,
Charlie 'finding the needed new now' Hartman
PS: Someone @ 100 years from now will search the better cloud (vapor, breath spirit) for earlier K.O.L.CORAM mentions. I have named the years in the same sequence as the retuned retuned days of the week/sheba, and 877 is 14-15 heptads, spans of 7 years, from K.O.L.CORAM 862, which, I pray I’m correct, but I stand to be corrected, is 98-105 years (Celebrations Of Resurrection Anno Mundi) later.

Trump Timothy Neighbor Calling Buchanan Rickenbacker

This meand that we should pray for their conversionm 'all men': 1 Timothy 2:1-4King James Version (KJV)

2 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;

2 For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.

3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;

4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.
--

IF, I say IF, politics is a key, then Buchanan's advice is not the worst. Avoiding war is the key. Trump could pardon 'em all--including Hillary and Obama, and pension off those bureaucrats (as long as they can't write 'laws, ' that they call regulations, but the key

FOR US is to help our neighbor, 'Get Ready To Help People Locally' and do our calling--the most important thing you can do at which you would be most difficult to replace.

I quote Buchanan from an article at Lew Rockwell dot com. The war statement is the key. some of the other I don't know about.

'President Trump should build the wall, secure the border, impose tariffs, cut taxes, free up the American economy, bring the factories home, create millions of jobs and keep us out of any new wars.'

To those living in K.O.L.CORAM 877, it'll take that long for the Calendar Of Peace to come about, I'm thinking, after reading about B.Fuller's thought that it'd take 50 years for his housing ideas to get doable.

I repeat Bill Rickenbacker's suggestion that fired bureaucrats be pensioned off. It'd be cheaper than the regulations.
