Pyramids of Maslow (II of II)






...Now the seventh tier is greater than the pyramid implies! Greater than its sum of parts: a synergy's contrived!
.
It's here there comes advancement as one cuts away ones fear. It's here there's elevation that your *God* has even feared!
.
It's here there is progression as the grasp achieves its reach. It's here, perhaps advancement as those reaching turn to teach. It's here, perhaps, improvement of an efficacious kind; it's here one knows the pleasure of the perspicacious mind.
.
See, at seven one's *self-actualized* ...as good as one can get, and is reaching for the very things we can't conceive of, yet.
.
"Reach" and "grasp" become as one, and magic happens fast!  Reality is sorted out, more firmly gripped at last. "Acceptance" is the stock in trade for "others" as they are—themselves, the world or what's outside ... that mind that is not ours!
.
Preferred is spontaneity. What's novel is the creed—the evidence considerable ...for routine there's little need. It's novelty conserved at last, the yin to yang of entropy, chaos is what rules supreme, for habit they have enmity.
.
The problem's at the center of the point of the concern; the self is secondary—that's the hardest thing we learn. Desired? Oh, rare detachment, the forest for the trees. Gestalt is common—usual ... they're off their bleeding knees! Requiring modest solitude so the thinking bubbles up, the actualized are worth the time they spend apart from us!
.
They change the world's thinking as they think the thoughts they do. Improving our humanity, they can see a problem new!
.
Required? An independence from distractions lower down on the levels of their pyramid that they've built on quaking ground. They NEED their stark autonomy they will EARN by giving back ... useful fruits of thoughtful labor as they take us "there" and "back"!
.
Too, resistance is the reflex given dogma one has brought. Stereotyped behaviors are eschewed as more than not.
.
They don't judge, but don't participate, not flamboyant, they don't try ... to stretch the unconventional to a point one could despise. They seek the common welfare, and an increase of the same. They live within an empathy so they suffer more, our shame.
.
Relationships are deeper (with a few), and less is more. Superficiality is detested to its core.
.
They see the democratic as the path to be maintained, where misery is shared on out, thereby: relieving needless pain. The joy is shared the same smart way, but increases for the sharing! The reward's a satisfaction we achieve for all our daring!
.
Too, then comes their transcendence, they don't cope, they SOAR and CLEAVE! The soul must slip its surly bonds to strive and to achieve!
.
Creation is the answer and the fund of real wealth; it satisfies the "hunger," and provokes for mental health.
.
It brings a "PEAK EXPERIENCE"; it is RAPTURE ; it is JOY; it's self-regenerating so there's independence, boy! It's excitement, and it's insight, and it's not for just a few! More could well achieve it with their structures so imbued.
.
Imbued with what, you're asking? Well, imbued by what supports! A better wage, paid time to think, clean WATER, by report!
.
The path is self-constructed in a pyramid one makes to reach the sky and grasp the truth from charlatans and fakes! Expand upon potential! Elevate your mind!
.
...Soar and cleave unlimited, unbound, and unconfined!

Self-actualization. More could (should) have it, and all would (shall) be IMPROVED for these having it. It'd bring the saucers down, but they're coming down anyway.

Artists and writers—artists of any type actually; these should get a stipend from a progressive government. That's right. Poets should be supported by the state.

Seriously, the creative should be encouraged to create. There will be crap. There's always crap... ...that's not news to anyone when it's 90% of everything?

Our salvation is in our creative artifice, and that's it, is my best guess. Unfettered intellectualities are required. Yeah boy! Gimmee summa dat!

Increasingly, father science is beginning to seem like it's not going to be able to pull off the big enchilada all by itself, eh? Aristotle and Plato are going to have to reconcile—create a synergy.

Aristotle can't go it alone. He would if he could. But he can't. It becomes increasingly obvious to him and flop sweat slimes his countenance. Science or nothing?  Then you have nothing.

Exactly.

Restore John Ford.
