On Autopoiesis & free will

*Autopoietic Noumenon* 

(An Argument in Generation)

Varela & Maturna’s Notion of Autopoiesis w/ the Kantian Noumenon (i.e., the transcesental immersion)as opposed to the Heideggerian Dasein (i.e., the purest essence of being) is the Autopoietic Noumenon i.e., inherently complex self-regulating living cells/systems function upon the discontinuous awareness of the Metaphysical which allows for the Novelty induced artistic communications. 

This will be the core point of the upcoming blog post/essay on & around Autopoietic Noumenon wherein I’ll sketch out its phenomenological structure which is essentially a broader argument for autopoietically induced creativity.

“[Humberto] Maturana and [Francisco] Varela’s revolutionary theory of cognition became the centerpiece of a larger overall explanation of how all organisms gunction and evolve, which they call “Autopoiesis,” from the Greek word “self-making.” “Autopoiesis” refers to the unique ability of living systems to remake themselves by means of their eown internal dynamics. Or put differently, living systems are autopoietic because, through their internal interactions with their component parts and their external interactions with the environment, they continually maintain themselves and generate their own organization. Autopoietic systems are also autonomous and have individuality, meaning that they maintain an identity that is independent of their interactions with an observer.

What does any of this have to do with education? If, as Maturana writes, “learning is not a process of accumulating representations of the environment; it is a continuous process of transformation of behavior through continuous change in the capacity of the nervous system to synthesize it”and if “man[woman/child] changes and lives in a changing frame of reference in a world continuously created and transformed by him[her],” then the fixed body of knowledge we hold up as the goal of education might not even exist.”

—Chris Mercogliano (In Defense of Childhood: Protecting Kids’ Inner Wildness; pp. 30/32)

“Autopoiesis attempts to define the uniqueness of the emergence that produces life in its fundamental cellular form. It’s specific to the cellular level. There’s a circular or network process that engenders a paradox: a self-organizing network of biochemical reactions produces molecules, which do something specific and unique: they create a boundary, a membrane, which constrains a network that has produces the constituents of the membrane. This is a logical bootstrap, a loop: a network produces entities that create a boundary, which constrains the network that produces the boundary. This bootstrap is precisely what is unique about cells. A self-distinguishing entity exists when the bootstrap is completed. This entity has produced its own boundary. It doesn’t require an external agent to notice it, or to say “I’m here”. It is, by itself, a self-distinction. It bootstraps itself out of a soup of chemistry and physics.”

—Francisco Varela, ‘The Emergent Self’

On ‘Free Will

We enter the concept or totalise the concept of free-will when we enter into a social contract (Jacques Rousseau) with the society or our immediate external environment. One could argue that the peak of this free will is realised at its maximum during the sensorimotor stages of childhood development (Jean Piaget)— when the individual is around 0-3yrs old and totally relies on his mother and his/her senses for support and care. During this stage, the individual is incapable of entering a social contract with its environment because it hasn’t developed any sense of shred values and communal ethics- it is after this very stage of development that the individual enters into a social contract wherein he/she fulfils their own moral and ethical duty. One can also argue, that the core of this idea lies within the arguments of facticity (by Jean-Paul Sartre & Simone de Beauvoir)— that ‘facticity’ signifies all of the concrete details against the background of which human freedom exists and is therefore, limited i.e., human freedom or ‘free will’ is essentially contextual- that it only exists in the need for it to contrast well with the social contract. 

Negev Poiesis

Far from the east, in the land of avraham

the young creator lies on the ground of Negev with all her ardere, and none

The eyes scanning through the avid makhteshim,

shuts down its eyelids to experience manifested aggregation of nature.

The momentary mystical-experience unfolded four sulphurs,

mercury, aquae, air and, ignis infernalis.

In unison, the terreus parallel the dunes,

illuminating the animæ hidden underneath molecular movement.

Pneuma’ Coalescence

Unreservedly wearied, the soul stood with a weighty stream of tears

as hours passed by, each minute perceived akin to an hour

she walks into the chamber of Eunomia, yearning release.

 

Eunomia & Astraea in loud dispute, pass the prejudiced plague

the soul in defeat crumbles, as the psyche in delirium behests her return to Sindhu

the colored penalty inducing psychoses in her wit takes her on an unforeseen journey from nigredo to albedo.

 

the long haul sickens her with the paranoia of the corona

anticipating chaos and demise within reach,

she melts onto her mattress with stern sedation of the enzymatic benzene.

 

a week passes by with the phobia of the corona,

as she finds herself in the kingdom of Hypomanie and deprimere

-crowned head, she creates and destructs for weeks to come.

 

the abstinence of Bhaṅgā brings back the long-forgotten reveries

hysterically aroused and startled,

she examines her reverie and hypnagogique narcolepsies for cues.

 

the syzygy emanating unabridged persona

makes her latent placated shadow self bulge out in play of Sekhmet

extrapolating her neuroses onto all and none.

 

months pass by, she floats in depths of Kirkegaadian neuroses

banishing the Mammon, mourning Aphrodite as Messalina,

holding onto the blue-eyed Athene and, iron-willed Ares.

 

one late-night, during dense contemplation

she reflects and meditates on the truth cast by the inner voice

“oh, creatour- the root of the delirium lies underneath you!”

 

enlightened, the psyche matures with jousissance

as she registers the mess as the dearth of amour-propre,

altruism towards self.

 

the inner light enunciates the elegy,

“is the self primed to welcome and devour the shadow or will it neglect and dupe itself to conclusively manifest hysteric lunacy?”

the tiny second of judgment here bases the conscious choice as the very precursor of the mental neuroses or psychoses.

 

the key to mental clarity relied on the transformation of conduct

yet the elegy could only be made implicit through time

as the self is the only true destroyer of its native resolute walls of delusions and illusions.

 

contented, she tests her elegy with the lysergic alchemy

the richness of kaleidoscopic, ample mental ecstatic trance

spoke to her in sensitivity, “creatour- do not resist, walk with life as life strolls with time!”

 

“Breathe, reflect, as sentience is what entails the nature of the universe,

create not follow, unwind and relax,

the inferno of the universe will not scar your soul if you don’t invalidate the essential i.e., self“.

Messalina & Psyche’s Agōnía

strolling around the eyes fell upon Messalina,

eyes hypnotized and inquisitive falls prey to the agōnía of Valeria.

ecstatic the psyche strolled down on an odyssey towards sensualism, devotion, unrequited variety, and misery,

the empress assuaged and cherished the psyche until one midnight she gave the psyche the voluptuous gaze- and now the psyche would never be the same.

the psyche fairly cherished her, until one day she kissed her ally,

enraptured at dusk, only at dawn to find her with a bloke,

the psyche squelching the sorrow accords frēondscipe.

days go by, the bond heightens into an exquisite paradise,

Valeria caresses the psyche with warmth, visits práh to delight her intimate.

 

the psyche suffers eternal anxiety and misery in the course of quadrāgintā,

Melissa barely anywhere to be found, until one day the velum Valeria hoists

trecherie, trecherie- deprimere,

the psyche eschapers as an epiphany emanates- never ever lie with the licentious empress of the papacy.

Reminiscences of Oneiros – I

I. The Aqua-Marinā eyed Muse

reminiscence- a bosom site, a cherished abode

my aqua marinā eyed muse,

with the sincere comfort and love in her Uranus eyes,

lets me rest my deprimere head on her læppa.

an amicable sense of peace and calmness enriches my core and soul in unison.

oh! like Mariam & Laila,

the unus here- love and understanding.

II. The Disdain of the Himeros

a white bedroom- brightly luminescent, evokes the memor

another familiar face- a fresh feeling surges from behind,

the Himeros. 

the Min-  daunting eyes; runs his lusty hands, down my gut.

i quiver- fleeting to the other fabrica of the oneiric.

an epiphany eventuates within the unconscious realm of my psukhē

the flesh aches for strācian, yet not from the escandle Himeros.

III. Calle Mayor- Anamnesis of the Sui Generis Dreamscape

Another oneroi, another intimate face- this time, of a long-forgotten shadow.

together, the duo stroll through the Calle Mayor, as old flashbacks of Madrid rejuvenates within the sui generis dreamscape.

at last, the awaited promise is contented- in the transcendental state of consciousness,

till the psyche awakens in Sindhu.

IV. Juniper Montaigne, and the Cavus of Protegere

this time, a profound oneroi- which the memor upon consciousness- expunged (succinct minutiae, transiently lost)

the visions captivate the lush-green mountains packed with junipers, orchids, and cedars.

an unusual moment unfurls- rocks rolling down, obscure humaine-figures scaling heights, rest running in anxiety.

an abrupt change occurs in the dream-vision- I find myself in a cave.

hiding, seeking asylum beneath the vast aperire of the cavus,

as slowly the dimensions of the oneroi crumbles to pieces.

Vision 2.0

 

440px-Taras_Shevchenko_painting_0019

It’s the need for the ego to interact with the external reality, is when an individual feels the urge to put on a mask.

Embracing the existential emptiness, the existential void– is the real meditation and acceptance of the nature of absolute reality, whilst the fear of the emptiness itself is the cue for an internally suffering unenlightened psyche and self.

The appearance of the hypnagogia results in the creation of the unconscious spectral phenomenon through symbolism into the mystical nature of the subconscious. The question is how much does our psyche rely on the self to manifest them and how much of the phenomena are independent of the self?

If anything, there’s mystical, not paranormal. Because, the universe, the consciousness can give rise to specters/mystical symbols in reality, but that doesn’t necessitate the characteristical classification of these elements. Sentients should be able to acknowledge and accept every element as a part of the whole (of the universe, of the consciousness), not as A or B, good or bad.

Vision 1.0

Completeness is realizing that there is no ‘incomplete’ – for the integration of being, one must forget the essential.

In hoc momento, this moment of breaking into the otherly, feeling your body give into the transcendental fractals- et in hoc tempore, senses excite the perceptual experience.

It’s the very difference in every repetition that accounts for change (Deleuze), hence difference lays newness. It’s the divorce of the concept of repetition from its identity itself.

Objectivity cannot be identified as Objectivity unless there’s Subjectivity. What even can Objective constitute within a realm of subjectivities?

How to simplify things in order to lead a simple life? Cynicism, Stoicism, and Modern Minimalism.

Intuition (Psychology) & Intellect (Mathematics) ~ The mind cannot receive the input if the body doesn’t exist ~ More of a medium, than intuitive.

The real transcends into the imaginary, which in turn dwells within the deemed reality – its the shadow, of the shadow.

(a desire, for desire itself – žižek)

Are these hypnagogic visuals something that binds the conscious and the unconscious state – i.e., do these visuals, however bizarre they may be, somehow present itself as the ‘in-between’ of the two different states? If hypnagogia is the liminal state between consciousness and unconsciousness, then the fascination lies in how this liminal state presents itself in an altered state. It’s like an open portal between two dimensions so that the portal itself is the enigmatic mixture that these two distinct dimensions present – in astral terms would be labeled as the ethereal plane.

It’s the specter of the common, that triggers anxiety of the fascination. The fractal-facial phenomenon, within the transcendental state of unconscious, escalates the fascination towards compulsion into the otherly.
