Notions

.Designs and plans of listeners and lurers, notions make kings over the fate of others. The other becomes a notional value, the perceived worth that a being might bring to a speculator: Certain features and characteristics, attributes and qualities to be bartered, counted, and marked on a staff.

There is a ratio attached to existence, a measure of expectation over productivity. Whether rich or poor, beggar or thief, the king holds his subjects in bondage, a debt against their cost. What is your cost? Your cost is the benefit you withdraw, for your own endeavors, against the hegemony of the king, In the vault, you act as a strawman, a speculated asset who’s soul and intentions are chattel to the one who holds the deed.

Within self, exists the origin of notion. This is the gift of intent. Each soul and natural person is shown the doorway to further their path. As one walks amid the percolation of life, they are ushered and cooed, wading through eddy and ebb of experiences. Intent, and our notions, guides us forward to a port and to leaders among us, whether for comfort or ally. Our notion gathers us, ascribing buoyancy and ease, calling currents to their destination.

Teach or learn, and the notions of others impress us. Notions become dreams and dreams become ideas. Our notions manifest and affect.

The moth flutters and catches our attention, a lazy flicker on a wayward path. Time is abandoned and our gaze wanders, viewing pathways in a breeze. The light is too perfect and the shimmer slows. Inhale, and the bird swoops and snaps the cord, spilling our intentions. Unless, in a glance, we know that this day our notions are privileged to wander and muse. Let intuition be a guide.

The notion to affect others is a peculiar burden, water in the hands, a load of odd bricks. Awake, and opportunity careens in the moment, releasing the moth tethered on a ribbon, fluttering to where another fate is unveiled, soaring through and unharmed, beyond a flock of birds.

“Passing, I had the notion to smile and such an array of outcomes did I incur.”


hegemony – an indirect form of imperial dominance in which the hegemon (leader state) rules sub-ordinate states by the implied means of power rather than direct military force; the cultural institutions of the hegemon establish and maintain the political annexation of the sub-ordinate peoples.

Jaap Maat, Philosophical Languages of the 17th Century “…a thing which is known without other intermediate notions can be considered to be primitive. A primitive notion is said to be conceived through itself.”

Gottfried Leibniz, Alphabeto Cogitationum Humanarum “The alphabet of human thought is a catalog of primitive notions, or those we cannot render clearer by any definitions.”

Rene Decartes, Meditations “For apart from the most general notions of being, number, duration, etc which apply to everything that we can conceive, we have only the notion of extension that is specifically for the body, and from that flow the notions of shape and movement; and for the soul on its own we have only the concept of thought, which includes perceptions of the understanding and inclinations of the will. Finally, for the body and soul together, we have only the concept of their union, on which depends the notion of the soul’s power to move the body and the body’s power to act on the soul by causing its sensations and passions.”

Obligation

Atheist and believer, residing in the highest, fit, and with the chance that all life has upon this world and the realm that is earth. It is a gift of good nature that gathers for your care and shelter.

They who live humbly and did not borrow while their neighbor incurred debt and possession.

They who have given freely and kept good accounts.

They who long for the return of ancient migrations.

They who choose to die honorably.

They who are no man’s chattel, living breathing beings, no greater or worse than the deer or the lark, and call upon air water fire earth to cleanse the garden.

They who march in security at war with no one and make war as they see fit, obligated to no one and live by their wits, walking freely upon the earth so that all may attend a neighbors’ pleas and choose the battles worthy, and wary of those would despise another for their creed.

They who are moral and just, returning this land to the heirs that their ancestor’s spirit would leave burdens of despair and fly free.

They who are observers to ensure the freedom of a neighbor, whether such neighbor is caught in a net, or a debt, or a struggle.

They who are stewards to bring impoverished from servitude and into freedom, one who would tend a reckless and burdensome village.

They who would cast seed upon the wind and let song to ear.

Declare aloud and with ringing, them who shall open the door.

Beginning – I am

I am not my body, that is stardust.

I am not my name, that is a sound to summon me.

I am not my deeds, they are my expression.

I am the I am that resides within and without, alpha and omega, all and one.
