Something I wrote that has been on my mind for quite some time on how I view our current situation in our country.

(an observational analysis on 4D functions and schematics)

 I have not written an essay in quite some time.  Actually to be quite frank, I have been on the downswing with my writing.  I have not spent much time in the realm of creative writing or objective journaling, but that has not stopped me from encompassing in the sphere of objective thinking or the over-rationalization of our current times that we live in.  If I had to give it thought behind the matter, I would give it plenty of time and patience to correlate a viewpoint that seems somewhat astounding to me, and that is the realm of the fourth dimension (or to state simply 4D.)


I was doing some homework recently, and I have been quite interested in a topic that is known as the fourth dimension.  The motivation behind this contemplative effort had to be the interest in this new term called “4D Chess.”  And I caught myself looking up rigorously not just about the rules, concepts, and guidelines on 4D Chess but also looking at a solid object within the 4th dimensional capability.  And yes, I have read that it is possible to perceive, maybe not with our own eyes, some concrete fundamental object with 4th dimensional perspective.  


Of course, this essay will point out the 4th dimensional perspective within the political sphere, but I also what to interject some of this understanding into perceiving goals, purposes, desires, issues, and even life itself.  At the same time I want to explain my theory in what it means to play this “4D Chess” while coming to terms with seeing things from that standpoint to a highly reasonable, critical, rational, and possible (quite scientific and formulaic) conclusion.


So let us jump right in, what is that 4th dimensional thinking?  Well first I want you to think of a small dot.  And that dot could be anything you want it to be, all the matters is that you focus on that dot.  You might notice that you could move up close to the dot or further away from it, but you notice that dot does not change, it remains a dot, it does not get bigger or smaller by any comparison, it is still that same dot.  It is only you that could move forward or backward from it.


Take this for an example, that that dot is something more subjective, like an issue, or purpose, or a viewpoint, or a goal that you had in mind, or a well driven purpose.  You could either move away from that distinctive (source) and you drift backwards away from it.  You could also move forward to that (source), and no matter if you drift further away or head towards it, that (source) does not change.  This is seeing or experiencing something in the first dimensional cue, noticing it ahead of us, and no matter our position (ahead or back) that (source) remains there itself, static and existing.  


In related to chess, or if you want to just go bare bones into the realm of politics, you know something that is definitely there, and if you truly are a one dimensional being, with one dimensional thinking, you can notice you can move either backward or forward towards that decisive (goal, vision, purpose, plan, etc.)  And there is only one direction you can move on the chessboard, if you can even call it chess at all, and that is taking the chess piece and only being able to move forward and backward.  Not that much of a game is it, like I said it is barely chess at all, more like a static object just being be able to regress or progress.  But there is much more to it than that?


Now we will step onto that 2nd dimensional thinking or perspective, and once again this not all that tricky to comprehend (and believe me most people are caught in this paradigm.)  When looking at the dot you notice by moving to the right or left, if you travel on either side, at a perfect 90 degree angle, you notice that dot is not a dot at all, but a perfect straight line.  The only difference you made was by moving right or left, and you noticie that dot has length, which in itself became a line.  


In the more subjective quality, when we pinpoint this dot as a purpose, a cause, an idea, an agenda, an issue, a vision; we can either move to the right or the left and we notice that this area has length, the only thing that changed is ourselves having moved from side to side.  We all have heard the old saying “there is two sides to every story” and “there is two sides of every coin.”  Well here it is as plain as day, I could flip from either side and still notice the same coin or story, but knowing that is has length, that there is more to it that meets the eye.  And we could easily apply to this to a goal or a purpose, that we can drift easily from either side to either side, knowing how long this vision we had in mind will take for us to achieve, taking both perspectives into consideration, knowing full well that the original goal or purpose or vision has not changed, however there are different sides (or routes) we can play to get there.  


Of course we can apply this to the political game, as we can view the dot as our current political structure, that there is both right leaning views and left leaning views, but coming back to its source it is still the same old political game.  Almost like saying “the right hand washes the left hand, and the left hand washes the right hand.”  Two different sides of the same old political game that has been here for quite some time (?)  People play both sides of that same old line, those same old goals or purposes.  Even though that both sides have their talking points, rebuttals, points of derision and decisive quips, just remember it is the same old game played many times before, the only thing that we naysayers notice is when we decide to play 2D Chess, even though we can move forward or backward, now we can sway from right to left.  Now the game becomes more interesting, pawns and rooks and knights also can be played; your typical flattened out chess board that we have all played before.  


This is where the fun parts begins, the quintessential 3D model, or in the case of my essay, the 3D perspective.  According to the mathematical and scientific reasoning behind this, we notice the line that has length, but we can move up or down.  And when we do, we notice that it is not a line but a square.  This is our perfect 3D model, and some people have a difficult time processing what this means.  It means we have given the line height, that we can either move up or down noticing that we have created a square that has length and height.  


This will be more difficult to explain when coming to its more subjective prose.  We notice that we can move right or left on issues or a goal or even a purpose or an idea, but we have to understand that there are those that move up in the world and those move down in the world.  I will try to describe this the best I can without becoming too convoluted.  We have those issues and purposes and ideas that are on two sides of the same fence, but we have to understand that there are people who are on the top and those at the bottom of that original line that is apart of the same (source.)  So even though we notice that there are two sides to every issues and purposes, ideas and agendas, there are those who benefit off that common (source) that rise above or that heighten their careers and those who run that (source).  At the same time we have those at the bottom of that same distinct line that is part of that (source) who are at the bottom of the barrel, that got dealt the losing hand because they did not play their card rights.  Some might say these people were tossed by the wayside or given an unfair advantage in life.  But I am going to take this one step further.

 
Notice how I explained those at the top and those at the bottom on either side of the line are still a part of that same (source.)  Remember we still have our perfect 3D square model.  This square will not work if those at those at the top did not have those at the bottom.  We need both, those that go up and down, in order for this 3D imaging to work.  For people who became successful, reaped the benefits of rising above, they need those at the bottom for support, that complete our square.  These at the bottom might be your common worker, your tradesmen, your factory grunt, the janitor that sweeps the floors.  While at the same time you need those people at the top to give direction, to invent the new ideas or new apparatuses, the moneymakers to make the deal, the thinkers who contemplate the larger scope of a plan.  And they can be on the opposite sides of the same old line stemming from the same source that went forward (progression) or backward (regression.)  So at the same time that we need our higher ups to enforce, dictate, make the rules and guidelines, we also need those at the bottom to carry out the mandates, to do the nit-and-gritty work, to operate the cogs of the wheel.  Still the same old apparatus being upheld by those who invented it and those who carried out the work.  


In politics we can find the same old thing.  We moved to the right and the left, found out that it had length; the amount of people lying on opposite sides of the line (whichever you choose.) Now you realize you have the politicians that benefited from that same unnerving apparatus and those who make up your bottom feeders, your typical pawns in the presence of bishops and queen and kings.  This comes from your establishment heads down in the good ol’ District of Columbia, on both sides of the aisle, still a part of the same old machine called politics.  If you venture outside of those government walls you find everybody else, the rest of us able-bodied Americans, both liberal and conservative.  And you need both the higher ups and downer downs to make that political apparatus alive and working; you cannot have one without the other; you still have your length on both sides of that spectrum that is apart of that governmental apparatus.


We find political pundits on both sides of the aisle that are a part of the establishment machine.  The only thing most people notice is what side they are rooting for.  I am sorry to say but those who do are only playing 2D Chess here.  If you know that elites are playing their cards right, making their millions upon millions, it will not matter what side you are on, cause you can find them on both sides of the fence still debating on the same old stuff that has been said and done plenty times before.  The only question they have to answer is, does this make us money? or how can we benefit from this?  At the same run-of-the-mill pawns have our own questions: hey what about us that make this damn apparatus work and thrive? or where is our due compensation?  So basically it is two sides of the same coin with those that made the coin and those who bought it.  Those that keep things the way they are and those who accept and run with it.  


Referring to a George Carlin quote “blue-collared, white-collared, doesn’t matter what color shirt you wear…right or left, doesn’t matter, it’s a giant club and guess what, you’re not in it!”  He pin pointed it quite perfectly, and I dom't believe he is wrong either.  The establishment has been here for quite some time.  Of course you might have leftist shills and conservative extremist, but I guarantee you they become all buddy-buddy when you catch them behind closed doors.  The money makers have to make their fortunes.  The RNC and DNC have to make something off petty quarrels and disputes, and those debates can be easily seen as a distraction, or in my kind of language, a smoke screen.  It as an illusion fed to normal peons (or pawns that make up the bottom half) that both democratic and republican fundamentals are always at odds with one another, that there has to be dissent and diversion that makes the apparatus function; when knowing full circle that most of these higher ups on both sides of spectrum keep on making millions off of tax dollars, that are fed to them by special interests groups and lobbyists, that use movements such as Black Lives Matter or the Proud Boys to orchestrate that chaos, violence, and anarchy discretely formulated and operated by investment bankers and power brokers that keep their hedge funds and pockets books lined with money that is printed down at the Fed that is not even backed up real gold or silver.  It is all a game to them, or a nicely packaged televised version of “Deal or No Deal.”


Now let us delve into deeper territory, that grand old 4th dimensional model, and afterwards I’ll explain how to play this 4D Chess paradigm.  The easiest way to explain this 4th dimensional thinking or perspective is by taking a look at our squared 3D model and passing through it to the other side.  Or maybe even going from top to bottom, and going forward and backward towards the dot an infinite amount of times all at continuous movements traveling at the speed of complete zero all deriving at the same focal point.  With this in mind, think of the 4th dimension as time itself.  We can actually grasp this in our minds, that all those points rotate around an axis, and we can displace this axis in a  rotation where (time) can happen at the same point or many points.  Our mind can grasp the dot, the line, and square, given height and length and now depth.  Imagine your brain grasping all the vertices, points and faces related to that axis.


I might have a hard explaining this in the subjective realm, and the best way to describe it is by using the 4D Chess model.  A great way to describe this model or game is by using an example.  My old man, my father, who has been a business man his entire life knows how to play 4D chess all too well.  Let us bring up politics in general.  Say that my dad is talking to friend about politics and one of them is a democrat, the other republican.  At first my dad and his friend instigate the discussion (1D chess) just chit-chatting or shooting the breeze.  Both my dad and his friend start talking about politics and they start to argue on some random topic like taxes (2D chess).  Now my dad starts to listen to his friend’s viewpoints, and tells him “let me here your side of the story.”  His friend humbly agrees and starts to regurgitate what he heard off of some television program or something he read off of Facebook.  My dad, in his mind, is filing information away that his friend is talking about, that he has also heard off the same programs, and now comes to conclusions where his friend (and those that think like him) get their news.  At the same time my dad says “I understand how you feel,” when in reality he just got some insight and information on how these other people think (3D chess.)  Time goes by (!) and the two start talking again, just normal chit-chat again, but now his friend says “It took me some time to think about it but I understand where you come from.”  The friend just gave my father the upper hand, now they start opening up to each other more, and his friend starts laying down some more truths about not only what he does but how other people like him think and function.  My dad at the same is collecting all the data as if filing it away into a register, reading between the lines and gathering all those tid-bits of info to reach an understanding that he could use it to his understanding (4D chess.)


You can apply this to a goal, a purpose, an idea, or even politics in general without getting into specifics.  Remember our 3D model, well I am going to take it one step further, which is recognizing that focal point, the depth of the purpose.  This reminds me of a line from Alice in Wonderland, “and Alice went tumbling down the rabbit hole never to return.”  The more you explore something, the farther you reach, the deeper you dig, and it is definitely harder to come out.  You cannot see things in the same light because you have discovered something different or unique.  You begin to make the connections between groups of people, that they make the square possible seeing things come to fruition.  And mostly what you discover of the 3D square are the intentional or underlying purposes, the deeper motivations of all the focal points; about the axis that rotates its fundamental drive.  


In a previous essay I wrote about what drives a person to do what he does, and this is no different.  The reasons you might discover of WHY and WHAT FOR REASONS that view or issue or agenda or policies or purpose is there to begin with.  In one of my favorites movies, Ray, Jamie Kennedy has a cool quip he says to his manager “scratch a lie, find a thief.”  You can apply this to what I am saying here; figuring out what drives the people that are bottom feeders on the left and right and what also drives those who are the leaders and business men.  I do believe most of the reasons are money itself, something financial.  There could be some other underlying factors as well, some hidden motivations.  I highly doubt if you come across a BLM protestor or activists, they could tell you what motivated them to join the group.  Or if you talk a member of the KKK why they, personally, dedicated their life to that organization.  Most likely they will give you something they overheard or read or viewed, and not a distinct personal unique answer to that question.  I would be quite amused to hear a rioter or looter say, “The reason why I am stealing is because someone is paying me to steal.”  I do find that ironically fashionable.  And who knows, this may be a new trend that unfolds given time, who the hell knows.


We can keep speculating why and what motivates people, but still that 4D model still looms.  I can either move forward or backward from it, step to either side, go from top all the way to bottom, peer into its innards and see what ticks and makes the machine prosper and live long.  But I could see all those things, and many people can’t, some people can.  It is very interesting not only when you play 4D chess but to understand things in simple 4D perspective.  If you try hard enough most people can do this and I encourage people to try, and not just be that 2D avatar, or 3D money maker.  If you encompass all those abilities to see what the game is all about, join the club, figure out that this world is not all that complex, it is pretty simple when you pull of all the nit-and-grit new rhetoric.  Peel off the layers and notice other people’s motivations are not all that elaborate, most are pretty simple and basic.  But if you’re a 4D chess player like I, you can see the forest for the trees.
