After Western Civilization, What? A Prayer

After Western Civilization, What?  A Prayer
A.      JBJ quote from blurb COATCF ‘We are witnessing the end of Western Civilization. …’ More here: https://smile.amazon.com/Crisis-Opportunity-Christian-Future-Jordan/dp/0984243917/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1474304903&sr=8-1&keywords=Crisis%2COpportunity%2C+and+the+Christian+Future
B.      JBJ Quote from CSILAD (12, song)  …’In its fullest manifestations, God's covenant with man, which we can illustrate from the Mosaic covenant, entails the following steps
and aspects: … 12. Artistic poems that encapsulate the covenant, and that are
to be taught to succeeding generations (Deut. 31:14-33:29).’  Pages 3 and 4, here: http://www.garynorth.com/freebooks/docs/pdf/covenant_sequence_leviticus_deuteronomy.pdf
C.      I’m claiming that as a start, we might see a 5-step covenant process, oriented (northed)toward each of the decks in a 3-decker creation universe in this way: Heavens Above: Jordan’s liturgy/order of worship of Call, Cleanse, Consecrate, Commune, Commission. The Waters Under The Earth would be echoed/resonated by a scientific method, thus: Newton is put into a different condition by the apple—Called? Then he says he doesn’t know how it work, but is convinced he can find out—Cleansed? He researches what others have written, and develops his on exegesis/hypothesis, similar to Readings and Sermons of Consecration?  The hypothesis is tested, two witnesses, in Communion? Then it is taken out to be used—Commission? I will attempt to show that the earth beneath, people made of dust/dirt, can have a similar structure, one anothering one another leitourgea-ically (sic) in a 5 step process: TSOCHI, The Symphony Of Comprehensive History Interactive. On one of Jordan’s audios he mentions, if I remember correctly, that there’s a Hebrew verb form for ‘we do it to each other. JBJ has also indicated a 5-step process of creation by God, also used in the Lord’s Supper. A City Council meeting is called at a certain time, there’s an agenda of things to do, past minutes are read, wisdom is input, decisions are made, and then executed after.

Herovolution

Herovolution
I believe Herovolution. God lovingly drags us into His future, changing us.
As we are chosen to be torn in the present between the future and the past, between in and out, our howl becomes music, and we the singing song.
(Faintly: Rests—absences—are as important as notes—presences.)
--
"Come, let us return to the LORD; for he has torn us, that he may heal us; he has struck us down, and he will bind us up" (Hos. 6:1), and John 6: 44No man can come to me, except the Father which hath senHt me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.

A hero is the man between times, the First Sufferer, the Protagonist. He Explicitly Reconciles Opposites.

Critical notes (More: http://chuckhartmanhistoryconductor.blogspot.com/2012/08/herovolution.html)

Penultimately, this works of opera (plural of opus in Italian?) aims toward ERH’s nest 1000 years, however long that is, and JBJ’s ‘new Abrahams, as I propose a next level/exponent/father that reworks previous social orders to glorify them, as in my step two of five, How To Make Your Communities Better (see ’Better Summary chuckhartmanhistoryconductor and links in previous posts, all TSOCHI on BH, chuckhartmanhistoryconductor, and Facebook Notes of Charles Howard Hartman). Godparents For Society, a Levir.
Finally, or firstly, Now you can conduct your won symphony, and train conductors.
App it. (I’’ be initiating a universe or responding to one frequently, and I work and think, Lord willing and other things being equql)

50 years since my philosophy degree—still in recovery.TSOCHI49A Page 2

50 years since my philosophy degree—still in recovery.TSOCHI49A Page 2
Margery Watts was kind enough to post in Kristy Lonsdale’s Stuart Herald that I had graduated from the U of Iowa on August 10, A. D. 1966 with a degree in philosophy.  There are two things to know about that. 1—Louise got me through. 2--I’m still in recovery.
The rest of this will be a development on one key: Goedel’s Incompleteness Proof in Symbolic Logic (Dr. Addis), especially his mention that all 5 of the Russell-Whitehead operators in “Principia Mathematica’ can be derived from the Sheffer  Stroke, which is ‘not both the one and the other’.
Goedel’s Incompleteness Proof, if I remember it correctly—I memorized it at the time--says that any axiomatic system is incomplete.  There are Well-Formed Formulas (truth statements) that are well-formed and true, but which cannot be derived from the axioms.
Thus, incompleteness. Scientists sometimes say that this is true of scientific truth. Surely theologically, there is a big gap between the Creator and us. We’ll get into inter-personal relations later—my imperative. Many ‘new’ discoveries cast theological formulations in other forms, of course.
And the Sheffer? Let’s ring some changes on that.  We know that the I Ching is based on an unbroken line for yes, and a broken one for no.  Yin and Yang are an attempt at intermixture. The Urim and Thummim of the High Priest in Ancient Israel are thought by some to be stones—one for yes, one for no. Computer work is based on zero and one.  Surely there are more.
Now, with the Three Chief Symbols, the Logos-Made-Flesh is said to be both the one and the other, without mixture, separation, confusion or something else (division?), if I remember correctly.  We’re talking Creeds of the Church here. Logos in the Symbols, and Symbolic Logic—there’s a word play!
Then there is Rosenstock-Huessy (Rosenstock). A refugee from Germany, he taught at Harvard, and better, at Dartmouth.  His students recorded him, starting in the 1940s. He had much to do with the Peace Corps. See his entry in the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy. I listened to him, James Jordan, Gary North, Teaching Company and other audios at work—what an education!
Rosenstock said that the Christian Era is when liabilities are turned into assets. One becomes the other.
Also, ‘Peace is the explicit reconciliation of opposites,’ and ‘America will lose/is losing the ability to speak’ by which he meant true speech, where one’s life is put behind one’s words (CHH: vows). ‘Every Latin verb form is based on a shorter imperative stem’ (paraphrase: ‘Magna Carta Latina’). Combining some of my own with ERH’s; The peacemaker is a hero, Helping.Explicitly.Reconcile.Opposites. And American Social History can be seen as the re-integration of the veteran into peacetime society, but we have lost both war declaration, and thus peace.
His historical work states that the national revolutions of the Christian Era are in 5 steps: Imperative, Subjective, Narrative, Objective, and Planetary Service. Papal, German, English, American-French, and Russian.
And his big thrust of history is a chiasm, there and back again. Tribes, Empires, Israel, Greece, and after He Who Reversed The Trend, Greece became, not a social order but, a companion. The New Israel is the church without exclusion, the Nation-State became the Empires minus slavery, and we await the next 1000 years, however long they are, which will be small, enthusiastic groups (tribes) without warfare—also, everything of that time will be a word starting with ‘socio-‘.
Jordan sees history as successive emphases on the Father, and then the Son, and then the Holy Spirit. Tribes, Nations, Cosmopolitan before Jesus, and Church, Christian State, and University after. (Law, Lyric, Evaluation, Fact, New Torah).We now await, per ‘Through New Eyes,’ though ‘Crisis, Opportunity, and the Christian Future’ challenges us to be new Abrahams, setting the course. ‘We are witnessing the end of Western Civilization.’ So North: Who’s in charge?—the one anotherers of the earth beneath. To whom do I report? What are the rules? What happens if I obey—or don’t? Does this outfit have a future?
So, my work accepts incompleteness, but aims more toward liabilities into assets, or as the New England Primer, the most-used textbook in American History puts it: ‘What is the chief end of man? To glorify God and fully to enjoy him forever’. (Full bucket)
Thus, I have an entry for the new era for each of Rosenstock’s 5—which I claim, are secularly put for his academic audience. The many 5s will be intros to each week, forward and backward. Start with ‘What will your verse be?’ from Robin Williams in ‘Dead Poets Society’ on YouTube—that’s where we’re going, the final cause. ‘You can’t teach about the Holy Spirit in Sociology courses, Professor Rosenstock,‘ said Harvard, around 1935.
Mine can be found elsewhere, or you can email me at edencity@aol.com, or I’m Charles Howard Hartman on Facebook. When I’m ready, a website.
Here’s a fill-in-the-blanks version of the imperative (JBJ’s Call, North’s Transcendence): https://sites.google.com/site/thesymphonyofhistorytsochi/fill-in-the-blanks-version-opus-49-s-a-n-e-sing-a-new-era. The rest of mine can be found by searching “Better Summary chuckhartmanhistoryconductor”
The key conclusion from what I’ve worked on for decades is that the Godparents For Eldsters that is the #5 Planetary Service portion is to be exponentialized into Godparents For Society—Persons, Types of Speech, Institutions. (Levir glorified) See my #2. Pella, refuge given, could become expert on refugees. Stuart, founded along the Big Mover—railroad—to serve farmers, could serve urban and other farmers along the internet, our big mover. Society: 1, Church—3rd world, greatest evangelistic success since the 3rd century. 2, State—Creveld, university—see below. 3, Marriage—Spengler/Goodman : ‘How Civilizations Die’
As Rosenstock put it, when we don’t take care of the unfinished business of previous social orders, they come back worse than ever (paraphrase). To do this exponentialization is to do that, I pray, while we wait, thanking thinking, arguing with GodTrinity using His own words, as I’ve attempted to do with this page  that highlights some of my previous 50 years, glorifyingly, Lord willing, and other things being equal..
Love in King Jesus,
Charlie ‘With page 1-4 you could conduct your own symphony and conductor training’ Hartman
PS: The Symphony Of Comprehensive History Interactive: TSOCHI
PPS: Comprehensivity, since Goedel and Shroedinger. ‘Bare particular’. Two red dots on a page, ‘Why are there two rather than one?’ More Faulkner: ‘… I decline to accept the end of man. It is easy enough to say that man is immortal simply because he will endure: that when the last dingdong of doom has clanged and faded from the last worthless rock hanging tideless in the last red and dying evening, that even then there will still be one more sound: that of his puny inexhaustible voice, still talking. I refuse to accept this. I believe that man will not merely endure: he will prevail…‘. Less Wittgenstein (though more than ‘2 red dots’ and yes ‘language games’) : ‘Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one must be silent.’. Even more ERH/Rosenstock ‘Chanting, how men first cried out to God.’ (I remember some incomplete sentences at U of Iowa philosophy).
PPPS: After Sputnik (1957) the federal government wanted to encourage science, and passed the National Defense Education Act.  I borrowed the maximum, $250 a SEMESTER, NOT a semester HOUR, and ended up owing $1800 for the whole 4-year education. Question: Do you want more doctors? Something similar would be better that many alternatives. After now: University—www.uopeople.edu, 100% online, no tuition, accredited and Khan Academy, and all MIT courses are free online (credit maybe later), and I pray that TSOCHI will be made into an app played world-wide.

TSOCHI Symphony49A Overture

TSOCHI Symphony49A Overture

Next:  12 days with each respective one's Question, and Crossing, and Person.  Then the order of singing.

Love in King Jesus,  Chuck

OVERTURE  :  R just wants to be heard. It’s a difficult situation. [Until the app, conduct your symphony this way]
A R is a co-worker, a Bernie Sanders supporter (even at precinct), frequents Catholic Worker House, a vegetarian, a runner, an ‘occupier’.  I asked R what R wanted, and R said ‘We just want to be heard’
B As 11 other ‘days’ interact with R over the course of 5 weeks, R will learn and be taught to solo, and to help others solo, in a version of the art form, The Symphony Of Comprehensive History Interactive.
C We’ll go through a 5 step sequence, echoing Rosenstock’s view of the Revolutions of the West. See  summary of same at chuckhartmanhistoryconductor.
D We pray that the ‘or’ of (light, Hebrew) of R will be the ‘ur’ (beginning, base, foundation, Hebrew) of R’s help in building the ‘ir’ (community, city). Each day initiates toward each other day in each movement
E It would be better if this were like the chant that Rosenstock holds in ‘Magna Carta Latina’ was how men did when they first cried out to God. E’ And also an imperative stem, again in ‘MCL’ that Rosenstock  held was a short form of all Latin verb forms.
D’ Let R’s aria of words or verbs reach the ear of the era so she hearkens. Hartman will either articulate an initiation of a universe each day at work for several months, or respond as one of the days initiated toward for several months. Work and think (learn to pray) pretending to be a group meeting as a tabernacle around a table.
C’ Other 5-steps will be appropriately mixed in to Rosenstock’s Imperative, Subjective, Narrative, Objective, and Planetary Service, such as those for liturgy and scientific method, and more, which Hartman claims are related respectively to The Heavens Above, and The Waters Under The Earth, so that, as Psalm Tone D is sung, Rosenstock’s ‘Universal History 1954’ statement that the next era will be one emphasizing ‘socio-‘ words, or as Hartman articulates, The Earth Beneath, people made of dirt/dust, interacting.
B’ The 12 ‘days,’ with respective persons, North Questions (‘R’ just wants to be heard) and Jordan Crossings will be shown next, followed by the order of seeking/singing each week,  and this will lead to training conductors, and also to the Final Cause of Tsochi49a’s conductor, a proposed next institution, Godparents For Society/Levir, an exponential move. Hartman’s 5 to fit into Rosenstock’s schema are Imperative: TSOCHI, Subjective: How To Make Your Communities Better, Narrative Calendar—House f Singing Times, 371 and Objective: 153 Culture, Planetary Service: Godparents For Eldsters. [As R’s plaint is writ large, so does Hartman’s GFE become GFS. Search ’Better Summary chuckhartmanhistoryconductor’.
A’ So as Hartman listened to his co-worker, and spoke/sang, this echoes the ‘poiema’/poem (Rosenstock) of Ephesians 2: 8-10, the poem becoming a poet. About 90 pages of interactions, a fill-in-the-blanks version being at https://sites.google.com/site/thesymphonyofhistorytsochi/fill-in-the-blanks-version-opus-49-s-a-n-e-sing-a-new-era.
 SYMPHONY SUMMARY  : Thus R is heard as he learns to pray as a member of the Heavenly Council, using the words and forms given in the Word, as GodTrinity wants us, toward maturation in redemptive history in the Holy War against the devil and his angels (‘The devil is God’s devil’: Luther). Players, Composers, conductors (electricity, trains, orchestras…) who come after will do better, all Lord willing. {Won't it be nice/nike to have players in symphonies all over the planet, helpingly interacting toward better conducting the era!?]
--Notes to be added.

The results were astonishing. In Roseto, virtually no one under 55 died of a heart attack, or showed any signs of heart disease. For men over 65, the death rate from heart disease in Roseto was roughly half that of the United States as a whole. The death rate from all causes in Roseto, in fact, was something like thirty or thirty-five percent lower than it should have been. In 1896, a dynamic young priest — Father Pasquale de Nisco — took over at Our Lady of Mount Carmel. De Nisco set up spiritual societies and organized festivals. He encouraged the townsfolk to clear the land, and plant onions, beans, potatoes, melons and fruit trees in the long backyards behind their houses. He gave out seeds and bulbs. The town came to life. The Rosetans began raising pigs in their backyard, and growing grapes for homemade wine. Schools, a park, a convent and a cemetery were built. Small shops and bakeries and restaurants and bars opened along Garibaldi Avenue. More than a dozen factories sprang up, making blouses for the garment trade. ...

The deliciously eccentric story of the town growing ALL its own veg By VINCENT GRAFF UPDATED: 11:31 EST, 10 December 2011 42 View comments Admittedly, it sounds like the most foolhardy of criminal capers, and one of the cheekiest, too. Outside the police station in the small Victorian mill town of Todmorden, West Yorkshire, there are three large raised flower beds. If you’d visited a few months ago, you’d have found them overflowing with curly kale, carrot plants, lettuces, spring onions — all manner of vegetables and salad leaves. Today the beds are bare. Why? Because people have been wandering up to the police station forecourt in broad daylight and digging up the vegetables. And what are the cops doing about this brazen theft from right under their noses? Nothing. Food for thought: Todmorden resident Estelle Brown, a former interior designer, with a basket of home-grown veg Food for thought: Todmorden resident Estelle Brown, a former interior designer, with a basket of home-grown veg Well, that’s not quite correct. ‘I watch ’em on camera as they come up and pick them,’ says desk officer Janet Scott, with a huge grin. It’s the smile that explains everything. For the vegetable-swipers are not thieves. The police station carrots — and thousands of vegetables in 70 large beds around the town — are there for the taking. Locals are encouraged to help themselves. A few tomatoes here, a handful of broccoli there. If they’re in season, they’re yours. Free. So there are (or were) raspberries, apricots and apples on the canal towpath; blackcurrants, redcurrants and strawberries beside the doctor’s surgery; beans and peas outside the college; cherries in the supermarket car park; and mint, rosemary, thyme and fennel by the health centre. The vegetable plots are the most visible sign of an amazing plan: to make Todmorden the first town in the country that is self-sufficient in food. ‘And we want to do it by 2018,’ says Mary Clear, 56, a grandmother of ten and co-founder of Incredible Edible, as the scheme is called. ‘It’s a very ambitious aim. But if you don’t aim high, you might as well stay in bed, mightn’t you?’ RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next Credit Crunch Christmas lunch: How supermarket items for the festive table vary in price and quality, from... Half-price Tesco turkeys no cheaper than full-price rivals SHARE THIS ARTICLE Share So what’s to stop me turning up with a huge carrier bag and grabbing all the rosemary in the town? ‘Nothing,’ says Mary. What’s to stop me nabbing all the apples? ‘Nothing.’ All your raspberries? ‘Nothing.’ It just doesn’t happen like that, she says. ‘We trust people. We truly believe — we are witness to it — that people are decent.’ When she sees the Big Issue seller gathering fruit for his lunch, she feels only pleasure. What does it matter, argues Mary, if once in a while she turns up with her margarine tub to find that all the strawberries are gone? ‘This is a revolution,’ she says. ‘But we are gentle revolutionaries. Everything we do is underpinned by kindness.’ The idea came about after she and co-founder Pam Warhurst, the former owner of the town’s Bear Cafe, began fretting about the state of the world and wondered what they could do. They reasoned that all they could do is start locally, so they got a group of people, mostly women, together in the cafe. Incredible Edible is about more than plots of veg. It's about educating people about food, and stimulating the local economy (pictured Vincent Graff and Estelle) Incredible Edible is about more than plots of veg. It's about educating people about food, and stimulating the local economy (pictured Vincent Graff and Estelle) ‘Wars come about by men having drinks in bars, good things come about when women drink coffee together,’ says Mary. ‘Our thinking was: there’s so much blame in the world — blame local government, blame politicians, blame bankers, blame technology — we thought, let’s just do something positive instead.’ We’re standing by a car park in the town centre. Mary points to a housing estate up the hill. Her face lights up. ‘The children walk past here on the way to school. We’ve filled the flower beds with fennel and they’ve all been taught that if you bite fennel, it tastes like a liquorice gobstopper. When I see the children popping little bits of herb into their mouths, I just think it’s brilliant.’ She takes me over to the front garden of her own house, a few yards away. Three years ago, when Incredible Edible was launched, she did a very unusual thing: she lowered her front wall, in order to encourage passers-by to walk into her garden and help themselves to whatever vegetables took their fancy. There were signs asking people to take something but it took six months for folk to ‘get it’, she says. They get it now. Obviously a few town-centre vegetable plants — even thousands of them — are not going to feed a community of 15,000 by themselves. But the police station potatoes act as a recruiting sergeant — to encourage residents to grow their own food at home. Today, hundreds of townspeople who began by helping themselves to the communal veg are now well on the way to self-sufficiency. But out on the street, what gets planted where? There’s kindness even in that. ‘The ticket man at the railway station, who was very much loved, was unwell. Before he died, we asked him: “What’s your favourite vegetable, Reg?” It was broccoli. So we planted memorial beds with broccoli at the station. One stop up the line, at Hebden Bridge, they loved Reg, too — and they’ve also planted broccoli in his memory.’ Not that all the plots are — how does one put this delicately? — ‘official’. Take the herb bushes by the canal. Owners British Waterways had no idea locals had been sowing plants there until an official inspected the area ahead of a visit by the Prince of Wales last year (Charles is a huge Incredible Edible fan). Estelle Brown, a 67-year-old former interior designer who tended the plot, received an email from British Waterways. ‘I was a bit worried to open it,’ she says. ‘But it said: “How do you build a raised bed? Because my boss wants one outside his office window.”’ Incredible Edible is also about much more than plots of veg. It’s about educating people about food, and stimulating the local economy. There are lessons in pickling and preserving fruits, courses on bread-making, and the local college is to offer a BTEC in horticulture. The thinking is that young people who have grown up among the street veg may make a career in food. Crucially, the scheme is also about helping local businesses. The Bear, a wonderful shop and cafe with a magnificent original Victorian frontage, sources all its ingredients from farmers within a 30-mile radius. There’s a brilliant daily market. People here can eat well on local produce, and thousands now do. Meanwhile, the local school was recently awarded a £500,000 Lottery grant to set up a fish farm in order to provide food for the locals and to teach useful skills to young people. Jenny Coleman, 62, who retired here from London, explains: ‘We need something for our young people to do. If you’re an 18-year-old, there’s got to be a good answer to the question: why would I want to stay in Todmorden?’ The day I visit, the town is battered by a bitterly-cold rain storm. Yet the place radiates warmth. People speak to each other in the street, wave as neighbours drive past, smile. If the phrase hadn’t been hijacked, the words ‘we’re all in this together’ would spring to mind. So what sort of place is Todmorden (known locally, without exception, as ‘Tod’)? If you’re assuming it’s largely peopled by middle-class grandmothers, think again. Nor is this place a mecca for the gin-and-Jag golf club set. Set in a Pennine valley — once, the road through the town served as the border between Yorkshire and Lancashire — it is a vibrant mix of age, class and ethnicity. A third of households do not own a car; a fifth do not have central heating. You can snap up a terrace house for £50,000 — or spend close to £1 million on a handsome stone villa with seven bedrooms. And the scheme has brought this varied community closer together, according to Pam Warhurst. Take one example. ‘The police have told us that, year on year, there has been a reduction in vandalism since we started,’ she says. ‘We weren’t expecting this.’ So why has it happened? Pam says: ‘If you take a grass verge that was used as a litter bin and a dog toilet and turn it into a place full of herbs and fruit trees, people won’t vandalise it. I think we are hard-wired not to damage food.’ Pam reckons a project like Incredible Edible could thrive in all sorts of places. ‘If the population is very transient, it’s difficult. But if you’ve got schools, shops, back gardens and verges, you can do it.’ Similar schemes are being piloted in 21 other towns in the UK, and there’s been interest shown from as far afield as Spain, Germany, Hong Kong and Canada. And, this week, Mary Clear gave a talk to an all-party group of MPs at Westminster. Todmorden was visited by a planner from New Zealand, working on the rebuilding of his country after February’s earthquake. Mary says: ‘He went back saying: “Why wouldn’t we rebuild the railway station with pick-your-own herbs? Why wouldn’t we rebuild the health centre with apple trees?” ‘What we’ve done is not clever. It just wasn’t being done.’ The final word goes to an outsider. Joe Strachan is a wealthy U.S. former sales director who decided to settle in Tod with his Scottish wife, after many years in California. He is 61 but looks 41. He became active with Incredible Edible six months ago, and couldn’t be happier digging, sowing and juicing fruit. I find myself next to him, sheltering from the driving rain. Why, I ask, would someone forsake the sunshine of California for all this? His answer sums up what the people around here have achieved. ‘There’s a nobility to growing food and allowing people to share it. There’s a feeling we’re doing something significant rather than just moaning that the state can’t take care of us. ‘Maybe we all need to learn to take care of ourselves.’ Share or comment on this article Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-2072383/Eccentric-town-Todmorden-growing-ALL-veg.html#ixzz4Ia6HIBLg Follow us: @MailOnline on Twitter | DailyMail on Facebook L��n�

The art form of the next era -- seeking app developer

This below is a 5-step sequence applied to  people, the earth beneath.

One example of a 5-step sequence applied toward the heavens above is order of worship.

I claim that a 5-step sequence applied to the waters under gives us the scientific method.

More will be explained later (See a next post 'Talking to R., letting R. be heard).

I'm looking for an app developer.  https://sites.google.com/site/thesymphonyofhistorytsochi/fill-in-the-blanks-version-opus-49-s-a-n-e-sing-a-new-era

Comment on Page 1 of Opera/Opus 49A: Sing A New Era (SANE)

Comment on Page 1 of Opera/Opus 49A: Sing A New Era (SANE)

For the next 6 months or so I'll be posting mostly in The Symphony. It's a 90-page, more with comments, scientific method analog for the next era, inspired by Eugen Rosenstock-Huessy's Dartmouth lectures, Universal History 1954, and others, including James James B. Jordan. The idea is that a 5-step sequence in a 3-decker world needs a completion, for that sequence facing the heaven above is order of worship, and facing the waters under is scientific method, and now we need something for the earth beneath, people made of dust.  How does the scientific method mirror liturgy?  Take Newton.  The apple calls him into a new intellectual position.  He is cleaned up by saying that he can't figure it out now, but that he can if he works at it.  He researches what others have written, and does his own research to arrive at an hypothesis that he then tests into a theory that is taken out to the world.  These 5, I claim, correspond to Call, Cleanse, Consecrate (I like  Cut up), Communion, and Commission.  In Rosenstock's Revolutions of the West (people) he uses Imperative, Subjective, Narrative, Objective, and Planetary Service.  What I do is take the talent/trauma of each of 12 'days'/people, and run each through the sequences, S, with each one anothering each of the others to produce universes of Initiations and then Responses in each of the 5.  Punningly, each develops and then sings a solo, such that the aria should catch the ear of the era, so that she hearkens.  Hebrewly; The or/light, become the ur/beginning of an ir/city, community.  It won't be easy, but even were I to make mucho dollars in the next 6 months and try to pay people to do it, it might not get done.  This way I'll leave a record, and maybe my Jay Abraham training REBUILTNNEEWW, can get more than an ebook out of it.  Levinson (Guerrilla Marketing) wrote that he made $20K from the book, but millions in other things related to it.

‘‘Where's the money in this?'

‘This is a question I'll be asking more and more, since economic exchange is an echo of the Trinity, in that there is the buyer who benefits, there is the seller who benefits, and there is the mutually benefitting transaction. This, as I say, echoes Augustine's depiction of the Trinity as the Lover, the Beloved, and Love Itself. Peter Leithart's book 'Traces of the Trinity' does this in a much better way.

Facebook Legacy Contact: Louise

Facebook Legacy Contact
Here’s the link for setting one up.

Facebook lets you name someone to have access to your account when you die.  I've chosen Louise.

My stuff posted on Facebook, I think, is very important.  I've tried to post all the new things I write about my calling--the next era--on both Facebook and chuckhartmanhistoryconductor, and in my backed up computer files (Dymon in Urbandale).

After August 1 (July 31 is our 51st anniversary) I will begin making simpler ways for others to benefit from the work that came to me after listening to Jordan's work, especially, and that of Rosenstock-Huessy.

Love in King Jesus,

Chuck
PS:  The imperative stem of the next era is, I'm proposing, the 'one another one another' revolution/advolutiion, or The Symphony of Comprehensive History Interactive.  Search 'Better Summary' on chuckhartmanhistoryconductor for the other 4 steps.

PPS: I have not sent this to all my cure teams members, or rescue team members yet.
