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.
