With any grace, the above photograph and caption – which I found on Facebook – will be the perfect summary of my life as I portray it on this blog. (Wikipedia’s article on the Japanese aesthetic philosophy itself is well worth reading.) – (יוחנן רכב)

[EDIT @ 2015-11-16: Blogs written by true Christians, like true Christians themselves, have this principle apply to them:]

(Joh 15:1 ESV) “I am the true vine, and my Father is the vinedresser.
(Joh 15:2 ESV) Every branch in me that does not bear fruit he takes away, and every branch that does bear fruit he prunes, that it may bear more fruit.”

WHAT IS “NORMAL”?

The "Converted" ENFP Psyche (after Haas)

The “Converted” ENFP Psyche (after Haas)

2016-04-27 @ 12:03 CDT

“What is ‘normal’?” people ask about human behavior – sometimes seriously, sometimes as a joke. It’s a good question, but to answer it properly – I mean when the question is serious – one has to think in terms of intelligent design. Thinking in terms of unintelligent evolution leads to no answer which works for everyone. Or if an evolutionist does find such an answer, it is only because his careful observation of a universe which could not have simply evolved forces him to.

In terms of the design paradigm, “normal” – in the way I’d phrase it – means “operating according to factory specifications”. Much of the problem people have with each other is that they don’t know – or sometimes care – that “factory specs” differ from one individual to another and one group of people to another.

Unknowingly for most of my life, and knowingly and systematically for about the last 5-6 years, I’ve been seeking how different people and groups have different “factory specs” and how to explain the differences. I ought to start posting here again about some of the tools I use to explain those differences, and how diagrams such as the above summarize my own “factory specs”. (יוחנן רכב)

ELEVEN AMERICAN NATIONS?

The Eleven American Nations (c/o Tufts Magazine)

The Eleven American Nations (c/o Tufts Magazine)

2016-02-22 @ 12:30 CST

Given my schedule, often I have to put something on this blog for further study, without making too many comments of my own. Here is one such item, which I spotted – somewhere – on Facebook today.

The Washington Post (November 8, 2013) cites this telling analysis by Colin Woodard (Tufts Magazine, Fall 2013) about how North America is sorting itself out into eleven distinct “nations” with very different makeups and outlooks on life. If Woodard is right – and his analysis makes a lot of sense to me – the implications not just for this election year, but our national future, are powerful.

As Woodard writes in Tufts Magazine, “Our continent’s famed mobility has been reinforcing, not dissolving, regional differences, as people increasingly sort themselves into like-minded communities.” This has great implications for dealing with violence-related issues such as gun control and the death penalty, again as Woodard notes. It seems unlikely that these eleven distinct “nations” can come to a consensus on these or any other major issues – at least any which will satisfy everybody. – (יוחנן רכב)

GRAVITY WAVES

Simulation of Two Black Holes Merging (c/o NPR)

Simulation of Two Black Holes Merging (c/o NPR)

2016-02-21 @ 12:15 CST

Undoubtedly there are many great articles out there regarding the recent discovery of “gravity waves”, but this page on the National Public Radio (NPR) site (another article is found on this page) has the virtue of being simple to understand, yet thorough enough to be helpful. It also features the graphic shown above and a very helpful video. This is an important confirmation of Albert Einstein’s theory of general relativity (an NPR commentary on this confirmation is here).

But a comment in that last article (by Linda Wertheimer) seems to me to be an overstatement at best. “Albert Einstein… developed his theory of general relativity in the early 20th century, and in 1915, he announced his theory that space and time are woven together and that events in the universe can cause space and time to move, to bob and jiggle, to stretch and ripple. Einstein’s ideas overturned previous ideas of an orderly universe where planets and solar systems revolved in a calm and eternal magnificence.”

It is the alleged overturn of the idea of “orderliness” which I’d like to challenge. We know more about just how orderly the Universe is than when Einstein was alive – let alone his predecessors in cosmology, Newton, Kepler, Copernicus, and Ptolemy, going back in time. Without the order inherent in natural law on the one hand and the human mind on the other, Einstein could not have made his theories and their predictions to begin with.

Even chaos is governed by natural law. One example of this is the random walk in mathematics. What Einstein and others have done – for this is how science progresses – is overturned a number of oversimplified ideas about how the Universe is ordered. The possibilities which exist within that order are mind-boggling – and that, to me, is the point. They bear witness, as even Einstein the deist confessed in his own way, to a Supreme Intelligence whose thoughts and workings should leave us all in utter awe.

(Proverbs 25:2 RSV) It is the glory of God to conceal things, but the glory of kings is to search things out. (יוחנן רכב)

MEDITATING ON THE TETRAGRAMMATON (YHWH)

The Tetragrammaton (Psalms 96:10, Hebrew Masoretic Text)

The Tetragrammaton (Psalms 96:10, Hebrew Masoretic Text)

2016-02-07 @ 15:30 CST

In our common English Bible versions, in the “Old Testament” (and in translations of the Jewish Tanakh), we see very frequently “the LORD” (normally as “small caps”) as opposed to “the Lord”. “The Lord” most frequently represents the Hebrew Adonay (אדני), and sometimes Adon (אדן) or ha-Adon (האדן). But when we see “the LORD”, and also “GOD” as representing Elohim (אלהים), almost always the original Hebrew word actually is the famous “Tetragrammaton”: Yehawweh (יהוה). The Hebrew Masoretic reading tradition instructs the reader to substitute Adonay or Elohim for Yehawweh, and to avoid trying to pronounce the latter – and our common English versions reflect this instruction faithfully.

Yet the same reading tradition makes it possible to know, and to reconstruct correctly, the original pronunciation of the Tetragrammaton. Its pronunciation was never lost – only kept hidden. Of course the original meaning was never lost either, as it is clearly translated in both Testaments (“the Eternal” is an effective one-phrase rendering).

I am jumping ahead of myself here in giving the pronunciation Yehawweh, because while the famous academic consensus, Yahweh, is valid biblical Hebrew, it is not correct biblical Hebrew – for reasons I shall explain. What I mean is while the ancient Hebrews could have used Yahweh, because it follows the rules of their language, the evidence is they actually did not use Yahweh – but used Yehawweh instead.

My first clue in unraveling the mystery came thanks to the work of the late Suzanne Haik-Vantoura (hereafter SHV), The Music of the Bible Revealed. The Hebrew Masoretic Text contains not only consonants, but vowel-points and melodic accents, which together preserve its “reading tradition”. “Letting the Bible interpret the Bible”, SHV not only deciphered the original melodic meaning of the accents, but inferred that the melodies they preserved were as old as the words and were created by the same authors. This means we must pay close attention to how (יהוה) is accented, for the accents – particularly in Psalms 96:10 – imply a specific number of syllables and what kinds of vowels should be used as well. Originally, (יהוה) had three syllables, not two, and also had a vowel pattern related to those of Adonay and Elohim which substitute for it (short-long-long). This rules out the academic inference Yahweh, and it also rules out any and all other inferences which refuse to take the Masoretic “reading tradition” as ancient and authoritative.

My second clue came thanks to an out-of-print book, 201 Hebrew Verbs (Barron’s Educational Services, Inc.), by the now-deceased Prof. Abraham S. Halkin. In his table of conjugations for the root *hayah, we find the following:

*Hayah in Modern Hebrew (c/o Abraham S. Halkin)

*Hayah in Modern Hebrew (c/o Abraham S. Halkin)

In two stems of the verb root, the masculine 3rd person singular gives us exactly the vowel pattern we need to be consistent with the accents. Which one should we choose: yehawweh (Pi`el stem) or yehuwweh (Pu`al stem)?

*Hayah - Pi`el and Pu`al forms (c/o Abraham S. Halkin)

*Hayah – Pi`el and Pu`al forms (c/o Abraham S. Halkin)

Pu`al is reflexive, and would make (יהוה) a created being. But (יהוה) is the uncreated Creator – so the intensive Pi`el is what we should accept. But I wondered if Prof. Halkin read rather too much into both verb stems. Surely it is the context, not the verb stem itself, which makes (יהוה) out to be the Eternal Creator God. Besides, it is freely acknowledged that the real root of (יהוה) is the older form *hawah. The conjugation of the Pi`el stem, were *hayah the actual root, would be notably different. It would have the letter yod, not the letter waw or vav, in the middle of any resulting verb form.

I learned this last fact much later from a book published by the same company, 501 Hebrew Roots by Shmuel Bolosky. The Pi`el stem of *hayah appears in Mishnaic Hebrew, and its masculine 3rd person singular would be yehayyeh, as given below. Prof. Bolosky notes its meaning as “bring into existence, produce”, which sheds light on why Prof. Halkin took yehawweh to mean “form, constitute”. But again, given the biblical context, surely God’s eternity is stated directly by the word, and only by context His capacity as Creator. Or is there something more than the verbal context that may be considered?

Yehayyeh - Mishnaic Hebrew (c/o Shmuel Bolosky)

Yehayyeh – Mishnaic Hebrew (c/o Shmuel Bolosky)

First, let us take (יהוה) as it appears in Psalm 96:10 – where the accentuation required is completely beyond dispute – and re-point it so that the word may be pronounced according to its original Pi`el stem:

Yehawweh - Pi`el Stem With Accents (Based on Psalms 96:10)

*Yehawweh – Pi`el Stem With Accents (Based on Psalms 96:10)

Some years ago, after I got this far in my research, I gave a presentation in London on SHV’s work. Before I spoke, Jill Purce, a specialist in the art form called “overtone chant”, demonstrated various applications of the art, including the series of vowels which alone give the entire ascending harmonic series in its results. Jill linked this series of vowels to Yahweh, which of course is the academic consensus. I explained to her, and to the rest of my audience, that Yahweh doesn’t have all the vowels required for what she did – but that Yehawweh does. In effect, Yehawweh is a transcription into Hebrew of a specific way of producing the harmonic series.

Another Jewish author and mathematician, Stan Tenan, showed me years ago a thesis: what scientists call the “Big Bang” may be described mathematically as an impulse generating the entire harmonic series (and, I presume long after the fact, the interactions of these waves). After hearing Jill’s presentation, I remembered what Stan told and showed me.

On the basis of all of the above, I submit that Yehawweh is the most “onomatopoeic” word known to man. Its sound represents the creation of all things by an Eternal Creator God, and thus who and what God fundamentally is.

But let us turn the question inside out. This multiple “coincidence” between sound, meaning, and location in Hebrew grammar, so far as I can see, could only happen if the root system of Hebrew – indeed, I suspect, of the whole Semitic language family – originally was constructed with the sound transcribed by Yehawweh as its ultimate basis. This means that Yehawweh – which, incidentally, would have been spelled Yehawwey (יהוי) in old Hebrew – is older, far older, than Hebrew itself. According to the Bible – by implication at least – it likely was the first or second word Adam heard from another. “Who are You?” was perhaps his first question to that Other. “(I am) Yehawweh” is the obvious answer. That name would have indicated to Adam its meaning by its very sound, whether or not Adam then had the capacity to understand its full implications.

The name Yehawweh, then, is itself positive evidence of His existence, eternal power, and Godhead. It points to who and what He is: the Eternal Creator God. His signature is written in mathematical and acoustical law, as it were. Yet so much more important to Him is the meaning of His name than the phonetics of His name that He hid the latter in plain sight from us in the Hebrew Masoretic Text – even while making sure the meaning of His name was never lost from view. – (יוחנן רכב)

“DRAMA” IN THIS PRESENT EVIL WORLD

Siberian Tigers Fighting (c/o Google Images)

Siberian Tigers Fighting (c/o Google Images)

2016-01-22 @ 11:00 CST

My apologies for the length of this post—I hope it will make the content more useful to the reader, not less.

The online Urban Dictionary is one of my “resources of last resort” in searching out information on our popular culture. I don’t recommend using that resource except as such a “last resort”. Its content reflects the increasingly vulgar, antisocial, and unspiritual nature of modern American society. That said: the fact that people “on the street”—sometimes, as it appears, with rather impressive credentials and/or positive life experiences—contribute anonymously to its definitions can make the resource unexpectedly useful at times.

At this writing, what “drama” means in our society, and how one should respond to it, has been the focus of conversation in some corners of Facebook. Ironically, Facebook is one of the best tools there is for breeding and transmitting “drama” such as the Urban Dictionary defines it. Not for nothing does a pastor I know, citing direct experience, call Facebook “Two-Facebook”. Users of Facebook acting one way In Real Life and another on Facebook, or two different ways on different parts of Facebook, pose one of Facebook’s most common problems.

At any rate, in hopes of lending clarity to the discussion of “drama”, I give the Urban Dictionary’s best “take” on the word. Now please understand: the following definition, useful as it is for understanding “drama” and related words in popular culture, is not to be applied to anyone who has genuine, deep problems—either by the person with such problems or by any onlookers.

DRAMA
A way of relating to the world in which a person consistently overreacts to or greatly exaggerates the importance of benign events.
Typically “drama” is used [that is, applied by or engaged in] by people who are chronically bored or those who seek attention.
People who engage in “drama” will usually attempt to drag other people into their dramatic state, as a way of gaining attention or making their own lives more exciting.
Common warning signs/risk factors of drama or a dramatic person are:

1. Having one supposedly serious problem after another.
2. Constantly telling other people about one’s problems.
3. Extreme emotionality or frequently shifting, intense emotions.
4. Claiming to have experienced negative events that are highly implausible.
5. A boring job or mundane life.
6. Making claims without sufficient evidence or a lack of detail about supposedly serious events.
7. A pattern of irrational behavior and reactions to everyday problems.

[Examples of use of the word “drama”, or of what that word represents, as given by the contributor:]

Sarah had a slight fever and mild cough. She decided to use drama, in order to receive sympathy and attention, so she told everyone she was deathly ill.
Debra lost her keys then spent four hours crying and yelling at her husband.
Mary did not answer her cell phone for an hour, so John feared that she had died in a horrible car accident.
Someone stole Steve’s can of Coke from the break room fridge, now he believes that someone at work is trying to destroy him.

by AgActual December 23, 2009

Others on Urban Dictionary, trying to explain what “drama” means in popular culture, note that 1) backstabbing, gossip, blackmail, and related negative social actions are very frequently involved with what our society calls “drama”; 2) women and teenage girls in our society increasingly thrive on that kind of “drama”; 3) there is a strong element in such severe “drama” of trying to get someone else involved in whatever argument is going on, and to get that other person to take one’s side against the other person in the argument, with partiality; 4) some contributors say sarcastically that one should “seek professional help” for an addiction to causing such “drama”, or “if all else fails”, one should “grow up”. (Radical immaturity certainly is associated with “drama” as our popular culture defines it—hence both the pieces of advice in point 4).)

There is a strong bias in the contributions as nobody singles out men as being “dramatic” in this way. But far too many men are. (Some of them are running for President this year.)

Nobody giving input to the Urban Dictionary calls trying to help others in a legitimate way, dealing with real crises in one’s life or the lives of others, telling others about a long chain of legitimate problems, or anything else which a Christian should do with or to other people, “drama”. Such edifying actions are not part of the popular definition of the word—that much needs to be made crystal clear! And while there are warnings in the Bible against getting involved—at least improperly—with that kind of “drama” in others, there are also examples and forms of encouragement for those who can make peace in such situations. I want to study those various passages to get a fuller picture before saying anything more about the biblical teaching and example.

But going beyond what the Urban Dictionary talks about, there is such a thing as denigrating the real problems of others—as if the problems were “all in their head”, being exaggerated for the sake of attention, and so on. Unfortunately, these days I hear plenty about that sort of denigration, especially by people who don’t understand anything about those who suffer from depression, PTSD, or other psychological problems. Such people often mistake the symptoms of some or all of these problems for the symptoms of immature, self-serving “drama”.

But let’s stop and think, using both “head sense” and with “heart sense”. People who are “dramatic”, in the way the Urban Dictionary would describe the problem, are so because they want to be—but nobody wants to struggle all their lives against the effects of a trauma. But to struggle against the effects of trauma is not immaturity—it is courage of the first rank. It is the human mind using its God-given capacity to seek internal balance against all opposition.

In particular, speaking of those who are traumatized through bad family relationships, the way they understand and interpret parent-child relationships especially is compromised. (I speak as a student of personality type models—this is the consistent observation I’ve made to date, about people who suffer from PTSD of this sort.) Frequently this compromises how such people deal with God on the one hand and legitimate human authority on the other, unless God intervenes. This is not immaturity—it is normal reaction to abnormal conditions.

I think that one of the ongoing crises among the faithful will be telling the difference between people with deep, legitimate problems and people who are addicted to immature, self-serving “drama”—and knowing what to do with each class of people.

THE LION OF THE TRIBE OF JUDAH ISN’T “SAFE”

From THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA, Vol. 1 (c/o Google Images)

From THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA, Vol. 1 (c/o Google Images)

2015-01-08 @ 13:22 CST

C.S. Lewis, the famous Protestant apologist, sought to teach people about the God of “traditional” Christianity in various ways, including allegorical fiction. His most famous series of books in that category is the collection THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA, which I once read from front to back. (I have also seen the first two films inspired by the books.) An important character, Aslan the Lion, is a thinly veiled symbol of Jesus Christ – and at the very end of the series, Lewis made crystal clear he meant it to be that way.

I’m rethinking my whole relationship to speculative fiction, but I do remember many quotes from many spec-fic works. I liked this quote, which I found on Google Images today. Three children who visit Narnia – in the first volume – learn about Aslan from two talking beavers. One of them asks if Aslan – who, of course, also talks – is “safe” to be around. No, He isn’t “safe” – but He is good, and that’s the point. And woe be to those who stand against Him – even the Ice Queen, who is so obviously a minion of the Devil.

By the way, Aslan is a Persian word – I recall it means “lion” in and of itself.

I recall also that the biblical apostle Paul knew the Greek literature – even the mythology – written by then-famous Greek authors. He quoted two poems – originally meant to praise Zeus – in praise of the true God (Theos), when Paul stood before the council at Athens. He quoted two other authors elsewhere. All are quoted verbatim in their own Classical Greek, which was more formal than the Common Greek Paul spoke every day.

(Acts 17:28 RSV) “…for ‘In him we live and move and have our being‘; as even some of your poets have said, ‘For we are indeed his offspring.'” (two quotes)
(1 Corinthians 15:33 RSV) Do not be deceived: “Bad company ruins good morals.”
(Titus 1:12 RSV) One of themselves, a prophet of their own, said, “Cretans are always liars, evil beasts, lazy gluttons.”

Paul had a curiosity about the world around him, and about its literature. But he knew how to sift the wheat from the chaff, so he could be “all things to all men”. He didn’t indulge in that kind of thing merely for its entertainment value, or merely to nurture his ENFP-style gift of imagination. This is an example which I, as a fellow ENFP and prone to making certain mistakes accordingly, am trying to learn from now.

I hope it’s understood that I’m doing the same here with Lewis’ fictional work: sifting the wheat from the chaff. Lewis’ fantasy has many things wrong with it, not least the blend of classical mythology with “traditional” Christianity which is so characteristic of so much art and literature over so many centuries in the European world. But Lewis had a valid point about Jesus Christ’s sovereignty. He is King because He is good, both in what He is and in what He does. And no, He isn’t even remotely “safe” to be around – not at least if you do evil by breaking His Father’s commandments. His eventual judgment of the world will be neither evaded nor mocked.

Now let’s go in closing from speculative fiction to prophetic revelation, this time through John:

(Revelation 5:1 RSV) And I saw in the right hand of him who was seated on the throne a scroll written within and on the back, sealed with seven seals;
(Revelation 5:2 RSV) and I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, “Who is worthy to open the scroll and break its seals?”
(Revelation 5:3 RSV) And no one in heaven or on earth or under the earth was able to open the scroll or to look into it,
(Revelation 5:4 RSV) and I wept much that no one was found worthy to open the scroll or to look into it.
(Revelation 5:5 RSV) Then one of the elders said to me, “Weep not; lo, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has conquered, so that he can open the scroll and its seven seals.”
(Revelation 5:6 RSV) And between the throne and the four living creatures and among the elders, I saw a Lamb standing, as though it had been slain, with seven horns and with seven eyes, which are the seven spirits of God sent out into all the earth;
(Revelation 5:7 RSV) and he went and took the scroll from the right hand of him who was seated on the throne.
(Revelation 5:8 RSV) And when he had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each holding a harp, and with golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints;
(Revelation 5:9 RSV) and they sang a new song, saying, “Worthy art thou to take the scroll and to open its seals, for thou wast slain and by thy blood didst ransom men for God from every tribe and tongue and people and nation,
(Revelation 5:10 RSV) and hast made them a kingdom and priests to our God, and they shall reign on earth.”
(Revelation 5:11 RSV) Then I looked, and I heard around the throne and the living creatures and the elders the voice of many angels, numbering myriads of myriads and thousands of thousands [hundreds of millions!],
(Revelation 5:12 RSV) saying with a loud voice, “Worthy is the Lamb who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing!”
(Revelation 5:13 RSV) And I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and in the sea, and all therein, saying, “To him who sits upon the throne and to the Lamb be blessing and honor and glory and might for ever and ever!”
(Revelation 5:14 RSV) And the four living creatures said, “Amen!” and the elders fell down and worshiped.
