was no longer the known statistics of dead data but fresh experience --
spontaneous, unknown and alive -- then twentieth century culture began
with its creative assimilation. What the scientist finds out through thinking,
the artist discovers through new ways of perceiving, hearing and feeling.
made scientific history with his theory of relativity and Heisenberg with
principle, the Surrealist
"dada" revolution (Dali, Cocteau, Satie, etc.), James
Joyce's omnicultural _Finnegans Wake_, and the music of Jazz brought
the living experience to the people. Both scientists and artists recognized
this dynamic shift from a "reality"
that was once "predictable, solid and set" to one that seemed wilder, more
plural, malleable and unfathomable. To those minds awakening from the slumber
of nineteenth century "certainty" trance,
our so-called "reality" entered the realm of immeasurable possibilities
with countless interpretations. Any culture failing to assimilate this
transformation in perception,
never enters the twentieth century let alone, the twenty-first.
The very spirit of imagination
demands the redefinition of intelligence, if only to begin thinking like
twentieth century brains, instead of eighteenth or nineteenth century ones.
Intelligence thrives on information. Before the twentieth century the most
widely accepted and scientific definition of "information" was the common-sense process
of accumulating known data; knowledge was inert, predictable, and easily
categorized. The universe, or so it was thought, could be mapped out in
surgical precision like some deux machina that followed understandable
laws. How many of us still think this way ?
At the turn of the twentieth century, Einstein, Heisenberg, and Schroedinger, amongst others, turned the world of intelligence on its ear; the world, according to the new physics and quantum mechanics, is infinitely more mysterious and strange than ever previously imagined. One outcome of this important update was the redefinition of what constituted "information." In light of living in a universe of greater uncertainties, information was redefined as "the unpredictability of a message". This means, the more unpredictable the message, the more information there is in it. At this point, author William Burroughs' axiom from _NAKED LUNCH_ "Nothing is true; everything is permitted" might've made terrible sense to the cutting edge scientific community.
On one end of the chronological spectrum, time is not money; it is the measure of your life, as in "the time of your life." The measurement of nature -- the thirteen lunar cycles, the solar eclipses, the seasonal shifts -- is as close as it gets to "galactic" time, the time which knows no beginning or end but a metamorphosis of duration. At the other extreme, there's the 60 second/60 minute/12 month manmade organization of available time into measurable bits and pieces, usually connected with the punch-clock of employment; time as commercial regulation.

Meanwhile, back at the foot of Ayer's Rock (Uluru), thousands of whites and blacks gather around to hear the invocation of a chief aboriginal elder. "This is the working of the ceremony to save thegreen ants, the aboriginal people and the dreamtime that holds the world together. The white people are too young to know this and too old to understand. Yet, you must listen to these words now and hear with your hearts, the singing of the mountain. The mountain sings. It sings like it has never sung before...it is singing now for you...for us...for every living creature on this beautiful Earth. The mountain sings its first and last song. The music comes from far, far away yet it is inside you...inside the mountain...inside the trees...inside the rising sun...inside the stars...inside the little pebbles in the river... inside the kangaroo...inside the green ants...inside your mother...inside your father...the song is singing by itself inside every living thing. Now, the mountain sings to keep the world alive. When you hear the song inside your hearts, sing back to the mountain. Sing back to the mountain...sing back to the mountain..."
To the backdrop soundtrack of a hundred dijeridoos and clapsticks, thousands of people sound a rainbow chorus of tones, chants and melodies... cadencing into an aural patchwork of multitudinous wordless song.
As humans endure the multi-faceted awareness of simultaneously converging information sources, they learn to dial and fine tune those frequencies appropriate to the concerns of the time and place they are in. With persistence, the development of a reality selection circuit (in the Central Neural System) encourages High-Velocity Interaction with other humans by virtue of tolerance. (As humans distinguish and qualify various levels within their own being, they tend to tolerate internal contraries thus, vicariously allow for differences in others).
