Automatism & Symmetry Attract Sandworms
Cognitive shocks always start on one side (who’s the matter with me, a man or a woman, and almost never an “it”), then metastasize to both sides, resulting in automatism and the symmetry of devolution.
Yes, symmetry is devolution, as inventor-philosopher-astrologer-helicopter pioneer Arthur M. Young clearly explained in his lectures and books.
Cognitive shocks lead to automatism and loss of Qi (Life Force).
Consciousness is asymmetrical and non-rhythmic — anything but automatic.
Rhythm attracts parasites, just like the sandworms in Frank Herbert’s Dune.
This has been known for thousands of years, but computer-age man’s memory has been erased by hubris … and symmetry.
Aging bodies create asymmetry, but not the kind to live for, only the kind to die for.
Charles Féré (The Pathology of Emotions, 1899) wrote …
“We know that in hysterios the symmetry of movements manifest themselves in a very characteristic manner in numerous circumstances interesting from the point of view of automatism. I have remarked that in normal subjects this same symmetry is found again under the influence of fatigue: we find it again in epileptics after the fit. Upon the graphs which I show you we see that in a normal subject the work by ergograph does not accompany itself at the beginning to the associated movements of the flexor of the opposite side: at the moment when these automatic associated movements begin that modification of the ergographic curve characteristic of fatigue appears: besides the pneumographic tracing becomes more irregular and indicates effort. It appears that fatigue, exhaustion, may be the physiological condition of automatism.”
Maurice Nicoll (Psychological Commentaries on the Teaching of Gurdjieff and Ouspensky, Vol. 1, 1952, 1980) wrote …
“G. [Gurdjieff] always taught with great emphasis that everything in time becomes mechanical. You learn to work on yourself a certain way, for example, and after a time it becomes mechanical and no longer gives you force. A change is necessary.”

“Circumprocess living is spontaneous intuitive living. Point-to-point mathematical constriction is logical and limited living. The intrinsic overflow of time explains how everything falls into place and you still have overflow.”
