Note: the contents of this page as well as those which precede and follow, must be read as a continuation and/or overlap in order that the continuity about a relationship to/with the dichotomous arrangement of the idea that one could possibly talk seriously about peace from a different perspective as well as the typical dichotomous assignment of Artificial Intelligence (such as the usage of zeros and ones used in computer programming) ... will not be lost (such as war being frequently used to describe an absence of peace and vice-versa). However, if your mind is prone to being distracted by timed or untimed commercialization (such as that seen in various types of American-based television, radio, news media and magazine publishing... not to mention the average classroom which carries over into the everyday workplace), you may be unable to sustain prolonged exposures to divergent ideas about a singular topic without becoming confused, unless the information is provided in a very simplistic manner.

Let's face it, humanity has a lousy definition, accompanying practice, and analysis of peace.

In various uses of the word "peace" we can find numerous examples such as the (not meant to be comprehensive) following examples:

  • Justice of the Peace (officer of the law enabled to perform set [limited] duties {such as perform a marriage ceremony} that may not have anything to do with enforcement of the law).

  • Peace officers (police officers)

  • Peace Corp (volunteer professionals to assist countries in various developmental stages such as in health care, education, agriculture, etc..).

  • Peace Treaties (various treaties that may alternatively be described as peace treaties).

  • Rest in Peace (known with the moniker as "R.I.P.", used as a reference in connection with someone having died, and may alternatively substituted with "Rest In Purgatory").

  • Peace Dividend (an economic valuation of peace defined as: "An economic benefit gained from a reduction in defence spending, especially a fund of public money that would be available for other purposes"). [Wordweb dictionary]

  • Peace "and" Quiet (represented as two separate ideas suggesting "peace" is not customarily quiet but may have a recognized order of perceived objects such as a flowing stream, fluttering butterfly, pleasing temperature, twittering song bird, scenic beauty, etc...)

  • Peaceful (full of peace but "peace" is represented by a "fullness" of some perceived quality of ambiance not necessarily attributable to all places of similarly lessened or diminished sounds.)

  • Peace Maker (A belt-fed machine gun capable of firing more than 500 rounds per minute; used by United States troops in World War II and the Korean War: Wordweb dictionary)

  • Peacekeeper Missile (the "big stick", shotgun-in-arms, or sidearm deterrent-to-war type of philosophy).

  • Peace of mind (quiet, uneventful, or eventful but pleasing, etc...)

  • Disturbing the Peace (alternatively defined in terms of morality, time, place, cause, culture, enforcement, law, etc...)

  • Peace Pipe (used by Native Americans as portrayed in American movie Westerns).

  • Peace Initiative (attempt to bring about a stop to a given conflict in a given time and place that causes prolonged death and/or destruction).

  • Peace Talks (discussions amongst conflicting entities with an arbitrator, in an attempt to define and thus resolve differences).

  • Etc...

If one argues that "peace" means an absence of "war" or conflict, then we should likewise argue for the development and usage of a word that describes something better then the continual merry-go-round humanity persists in riding because so called intelligent efforts at establishing peace have not succeeded in giving humanity the greater ideal that many of us supposedly think everyone wants... yet often is used by those in a conflict to receive concessions in the form of some assistance that if had been asked for without the occasion of a conflict, might not have been given. Thus, having a conflict, whether planned by the leadership of one or both sides of a dispute... can be very profitable. The problem with this tactic is that it has been so repeatedly used by those who use it as a wolf! crying measure to get help but do not use the monetary or humanitarian assistance as is intended, and instead uses the resource to buy weapons or secure some other personal advantage for those in charge; that those whose legitimate pleas for help under other circumstances of conflict, may not receive any help at all... or it is too little too late.

When we recognize a situation in which peace is a mere relative experience for a given time, place and people, it is inappropriately used by those wanting to suggest it is something other than what is possible to be experienced on Earth by humans. For example, the so-called "heavenly... peace on Earth" spoken of in multifarious ways by theologians or those espousing some philosophical contemplation of higher enlightenment— where some assumed peaceful reality exists... and in particular could exist on Earth (other than some inwardly achieved "centeredness"), is an hypocrisy. If peace is to be universally defined as a relative personal experience, then those disrupting personal pursuits of such must be definitively addressed, such as the Palestinian and Israeli conflict with its interminable discord felt throughout the world. No less, the discord created by forms of government, businesses activities and religious doctrines which want to force people to adopt a particular belief to suit he dispositions of one or a few leaders, should also be definitively addressed to remove them as being part of an accumulated "peace disturbing" process in that such leaderships frequently engage in social disruptions because they are seeking some personal gain that they value more than individual peace. Unfortunately, even though a leadership can say they seek peace, it typically means a situation in accord with their views that they may claim "everyone" wants, but no actual vote was ever asked for nor implemented.

So very often, a "disturbance of peace" is brought about due to economic problems, but not all disturbances result in riots, rebellion or revolution involving violent and destructive protests. For example, the peace of millions was disrupted by the depression of the 1930's in the U.S., but there was not a large demonstration in which the government was toppled in order that a different government might arise and improve conditions. Instead, F.D. Roosevelt proposed a "New Deal", even though there was no official "Old Deal" that was specifically outlined because of the generalities in which government policies often are drawn up so that finger-pointing can be quickly diffused or is brought to a minimum when policies don't work as planned.

(The New Deal was) the domestic program of the administration of U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt between 1933 and 1939, which took action to bring about immediate economic relief as well as reforms in industry, agriculture, finance, waterpower, labour, and housing, vastly increasing the scope of the federal government's activities.

Because of the monopolization of most land and other resources into the hands of a few, and those few wield their control as a means of exploitation to further aims of increased hoarding of wealth and the people are left without any legal recourse to create a globalized effort of cooperation; there will be no standard of peace except that which keeps the majority in a vulnerable state of dependency whose depth and breath of basic privations can not be adequately addressed within the constraints of any or all business, government and religious ideologies. Both individually and collectively such policies fail humanity and the various leaderships have adopted systems of ideological buffering to shield them from acknowledging their efforts are part of the problem because they rely on false... or rather an insufficient grasp of reality derived from made-up values of morality that do not incorporate the type and level of morality necessary to deal with problematic issues sustained by good intentions but are dysfunctional in effectiveness. In other words, one suffering is addressed yet another crops up in its place, like weeds or a figure-creating balloon artist whose twists and turns are much like the actions of business, government and religious efforts to address concerns.

If one suggests that a given business, government or religion does not actually seek Peace, a representative thereof might scoff at such a remark. But if you should follow their response with a query as to their idea of peace, one might find that there definition has no actual analysis behind it and despite their genuinely sincere interest in desiring peace; their view is based on the same generalities most people have with respect to the approach of a dichotomization without referencing the pattern as an illustration of a schematic used in other subject areas that have likewise excluded a consideration of similarly identified structures such as patterns-of-three; both of which, along with others, illustrate an environmentally influenced, biologically-based blue-print... of sorts. Not that the observed schematic is a tell-all representation of an architectured thought form which can not be altered— or is complete, but at least provides a starting point for setting some measure of a base-line to work outwards from in understanding human thought processing under present (incrementally deteriorating) environmental conditions.

Let us now provide a few more examples of patterns-of-three:

3 ("powered") "arbitrarily chosen" Electronics math tool: 10-15 10-12 10-9 10-6 10-3 ... 103 106 109 1012 1015 ...etc.

3-patterned formulas:

C = pi x D (Circumference of a Circle) E = H x V (Planck's Constant)
A = L x W (Area of a Rectangle) P = I x E (Watt's "Law")
A = 1/2B x H (Area of a Triangle) E = I x R (Ohm's "Law")
A = pi x R (Area of a Circle) E = V1 + V2 (Kirchhoffs Voltage Law)
E = M x C2 (Einstein's formula) P = R x B (Percentage formulas)
Z = Eg รท Ig (Thevenin impedance formula) A2 + B2 = C2 (Pythagorean theorem)

*** Thales of Miletus; "Thales Proposition" (Triangles over the diameter of a circle are right-angled), is oldest theory of occidental mathematics. (Think of this in terms of a Triangle/Earth impression.)

3 patterned: 6 zeros (million); 9 zeros (billion);12 zeros (trillion); 15 zeros (quadrillion); 18 zeros (quintillion); 21 zeros (sextillion); 27 zeros (octillion); 30 zeros (nonillion); 33 zeros (decillion); etc...

*** Same Sum---Every Time: Take any three-digit number in which the first digit is larger than the last digit. Reverse the number and subtract the smaller number from the larger one. Reverse the result and add this number to the result. For example, use the number 725. The reverse is 577. Subtract 527 from 725 to get 198. The reverse is 891. Add 891 to 198 to get 1,089 every time. If the result from step 2 is a two-digit number, such as 99, put a 0 in front of the 99 before reversing it. (For the numerologically inclined, the result is 9, the perfect multiple of 3.)

*** Note: The so-called four-directions concept referred to as North - South - East -West, is readily recognized as a two-by-two polarity association. We also are accustomed to use the phrase "North, South, East and West," (also, "Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall") with the "and" as a distinct means of partitioning off the first three, thereby producing a circumstance of 3 to 1.

Another such occurrence of partitioning off the first three as a characteristic of three-patterned grouping, is the child's counting scheme of One Potato, Two Potato, Three Potato, Four. There is no "Four Potato." Like-wise, in the High School cheer "Two Bits, Four Bits, Six Bits, a Dollar," there is not only no "Dollar Bits," there also is the separator "a" which acts as a sort of demarcation boundary line between the first three "Relatives" and that which is distantly related. As a final (related) remark, the child's counting rhyme "One, Two, Buckle My Shoe" ...etc., not only represents a three-patterned grouping, but also is reminiscent of the repetition used by early peoples in their attempts to develop larger counting sequences which frequently relied on combinations of earlier quantities in much the same way as we repeat our numerical symbols after reaching the number nine. The rhyme of "Shoe" with "Two" is an example of cognitive grouping limitation in the sense that to go beyond the limit requires successive duplications whether we use words that sound the same, number (symbols) that look the same, or use some other perceptual referencing mechanism.

*** The parent asks the child: Do you have to do Number 1 or Number 2? (I always said Number 3, which is, in reality, a combination of both. Believe it or not some adults would ask what Number 3 was!)
