Limitless businesses, conversations, and activities alter continuous enduring experiences. Just so, the activities of a pursuit of limitless understanding revealed the connection between these businesses, conversations, and activities and the endured experiences themselves.
In ultra-modern times to modern, 業 can mean one’s work, or one’s profession (Wiktionary, 2022), whereas consultation of some etymology through the Digital Dictionary of Buddhism, Charles Muller (2020/1993) defines it principally as activity. Buddhist lineages use the character for karma, that is, specifically volition, or intention. It is important to note karma’s indexicality, for there are two ways within which karma signs. First is that karma may generalize both the activity/volition itself and corresponding fruits/results—between them however is subject to uncertainty with respect to conditions. The second is that karma may more specifically refer to the activity/volition, sans the prior generalization inclusive of fruits/results (i.e., vipaka). A Buddhist perspective also considers karma the workings of thoughts, words, and deeds (see esoteric/vajrayana buddhism), which are the second, third, and fourth aspects of an eightfold path following (i.e., posteriori) right view.
In the psychological frame, activity may be seen in attitude. Whereas many prior models of attitude are considered, one which seems to stand the test of time is a tripartite model of attitude consisting of: 1) affects (i.e., feelings), 2) cognitions (i.e., thoughts), and 3) behaviors (Krech et al., 1962; Rosenberg & Holland, 1960).
The work of moving matter and energy as part of samsara is function, these functions are of thought, word, and deed. Function, effectively serving a quantization, leaves shadows of its function within that which is functioned on. It is important to note that the interference patterns of business do create habitation and just as there are consequences of cogs moving within a machine, there are also consequences for the cog makers, in following patterns to make similar cogs into the future, with similar pattern making behaviors. This behavioral conditioning is subject and object of many practices reviewing outputs of thoughts, words, and deeds, each with their own practical review process and is subject and object to/of automatics (see atomalysis).
It is important to note that samsara, naturally benefits and turbulizes through ever increasing complications, and it is this fact that plays into favor for cognitive awareness (the film is moving under the projector, and the projector only need remain still).
Abstraction is essential in the study and application of insights gleaned through increases in cognitive awareness of the functions moving matter and energy within samsara. At its peak, value abstraction is the function of realizing the most value, within narrower units of distance and time, where value is measured as benefit to [ redacted ] (entropic flow formation and maintenance).
Attribution is part of this abstraction process. Wisdom about causal relations will lead to more wholesome activity benefitting matter and energy distribution, whereas ignorance about causal relations will lead to more unwholesome activity turbulizing matter and energy distribution.
The ability to see causal relations has practical application, and will immediately be put into effect, however pivoting cause-effect into multi-variate functions is more complete. What was once seen as “X leads to Y” is now seen as “X is [function of] proportional to Y across Z”. Effectively what was a binding flatland, is now extra-dimensional in that the distribution of causes and effects is seen with respect to topologies. The ability to be cognitive of proportions of varying functions uproots ignorance with regard to the inability to see around complications within relations.
Now, one has a choice, to add a dimension to the proportionality, which can be done, however misses the mark of the next hallmark of activity. That is, valencability. Just as atoms have cubed valence configurations in “electron clouds” of probability, so too do proportions. Interchangeability of Indicators is basically the ability to see functional similarities, period without “of”.
Entropic minification is correlated to increasing magnitudes and directions of functional interchangeability, most of the recent gains in markets by individuals and herds is attributable to automation in this space.
