Taboo Question 1: On If Going Against Popular Opinion Means a Rejection of the Population
Population in this case is like an ontological Petri dish. An enclosed system of resources who’s enclosure is secured by each resource’s role within the system.
We can say that most resources, at any given time, are irrelevant/trivial to any particular resource. A particular resource exists or is non-trivial to the extent that it fulfills its role. To fulfill its role is to create a universal aftereffect that reassures the entire validity of the Petri dish.
“Validity” in this case means that the identity of the Petri dish is identified. This is question begging and complicated. It is because it is.
Regardless, we have as evidence our own self-awareness as an example of population. This is related to emergence/emergency theory. We are not just “a” self-awareness. We’re a system that congregates to reach an aftereffect we identify as the self.
This procedure can be compared to a mirror. From this comparison, we can see the paradoxes of identity/question begging/validity. When we stand in front of a mirror, we see ourselves.
When we stand “in front” of the processes that make up our self, we see our self.
Instead of self-awareness, let’s consider our “tribe”. Our tribe are the people around us that make up our society’s population.
The resources in our self-awareness are our own individual biological processes, plus everything else in the universe. The resources in our social population is every person within that society, plus everything else in the universe.
“Everything else in the universe” is neutral/trivial/non-reactive-to-internal-politics. Every social population regards the same “everything else in the universe”. These populations differ in their particular individuals that make up their identity.
The difference between these human populations is in quality. Not quantity.
This can be contrasted with the population of atoms that make up the Sun. The Sun has many kind of atoms and some of the atoms change in quality.
The question is, when we go against the group, our population, we become a free radical. A quality defined by what is not. A quality of becoming but not being.
