Buddha Day in Peace Week--Short Explanation

A BRIEF explanation of the Peace Week. More later.  We are in a long campaign. (This is Buddha Day in this week, so I explain a little. Developing.  

I REALLY like tensegrity, the integrity in tension. Lots of that in ancient lore too, for I have been reading about the Dogon and their effect on the symbolism of a Buddhist Building, the stupa, both being civilizational 'matrices,' I would say. and one I did and am doing for Peace Tribe Manual is the incorporation of the Axial Age (Buddha, Greek philosophy, Confucius and Lao-tse emerged @ 500 B. C.) into a week, as we have the Greek and Roman gods of planets, and the northern tribes too in our present week.

Already Day, JesusAllTimes Day, Lao-tse Day, Abraham Day, Buddha Day, Greece Day, NotYetDay. These follow a 'revolutionary' pattern of Rosenstock-Huessy on the space-time axes of forward, in, backward, out--I have an extra out to get Greece in there, and to fit it within the 5 day 'liturgy' sandwiched by the Great Tearing of Already/NotYet. 

The Buddhist building,/Dogon building connection is best explained on pages 173 ff. of The Cosmological Origins of Myth and Symbol by Laird Scranton.

 And of course, the various buildings of Hebrew and Christian Culture are cimilar maturational, I'd say ur-maturational, and I in that tradition with House Of Singing Times (peace-engendering calendar for neo-tribal times, when our big problem is the perpetual warfare of the tribe) and thus Peace Tribe Manual, wherein I attempt to command other to find their imperative (above with Bucky) and start the path ERH identified of Imperative, Subjective, Narrative, Objective (planetary service), best limned in Gardner's 'Beyond Belief' chapter 5 and in his chart of the Complete Cross of Reality (on space-time axis).

 Love in King Jesus, New Charlie.
