    1 Intro

    In troubled times, there’s always a silver lining. We shouldn’t let this perfect curative crisis go to waste.





    By takehome message I mean that endowed enlightening primeval common-sense which allows us to make sense of things, and which, without it, has us at best, perplexed, and, at worse, simply babbling nonsense.



    It is built in us since get-go, but, lacking awareness of it, means, that the more we fix things, the more we make things worse.



    In order to address the cause, we need to aim our efforts at the foot of the fire, and, not at the flames, for fear of further fueling the crisis.



    Let’s start from square one, with defining our concepts in order to gain clarity in the quest. We start by mentioning broken times, then it stands to reason that we know what it means to be whole. Right? By all accounts this seems to be a good place to start.



    From pre-K, we’re told that the whole is made up of parts. Well, in all truthfulness, this definition of whole is what put us in the hole, to begin with, no pun intended. All it tells us is that if it isn’t broken, don’t fix it. But, what if it is broken? It doesn’t tell us anything.



    How can we fix things, if we don’t even know what it means to be whole, to begin with?



    There must be a take-home message that life teaches us. How to be whole. But, what is whole made up of? Parts, you say? But, how so? That I may know how to piece the parts of the puzzle together.



    In this age of ours, driven by science-&-technology, what is the takehome message, that provides us the tools to be successful on Earth? The Takeaway is the answer to the question of what makes up the Whole, of what makes us Whole.



    I work for AustinISD teaching science to at-risk students at the Travis County Juvie facility.



    I’m running for Congress because I rediscovered the Takeaway. I need to share it, the good news cannot, and should not die with me, it needs to see the light of day.



    I am running for the United States House of Representatives, District 21 Texas. District 21 comprises Southwest Austin, everything west of IH 35 from Buda to Northwest San Antonio, including San Marcos and the Hill Country.

    2 Takeaway

    Let me cut to the chase, and tell you upfront about the most powerful, wonderful, human rediscovery of all times. Later on, standing on one foot I will walk you through the steps of the argument, but, first let me tell you what the Takeaway is. What is the takehome message that life teaches us?



    Let me explain it with pecans, literally with pecans. I teach science, and in physics I learned early on to explain complicated things by way of user-friendly models.



    What I am about to present may shock you. But, one thing I can promise you. You will not come out of this experience the same person you came in. It’s that powerful. So, then, without further ado, let’s do it. As mentioned, I will start by the conclusion, leaving the reasoning till later.



    Let me layout the Pecan Seed-of-Life Model for the Takeaway. By the way, the pecan is actually native to today’s southwest US and northeast Mexico. It is the state tree of Texas. So, it is only fitting and proper to name the Takeaway model honoring our friendly pecan.



    Just as the pecan is made up of a husk, shell, and kernel; so, I will map the husk as a square frame background, the enclosed shell I will map as an ellipse, as middle ground, and, lastly, I will map the kernel that is housed inside foreground, as a complex right-triangle.



    In words, this model is saying that the whole is made up of a triad of parts.

    Dear Friends of Dialogue:

    Synoptic Introduction

    One thing seems certain, in these uncertain of times. It is that we shouldn’t let this perfect, curative crisis of civilization, go to waste. Every cloud has a silver lining.



    Living in denial doesn’t help in the least. Today’s present danger, of a slow prolonged death, or else, a quick sudden extinction, is real, hardly in need of further insistence. We need to take ownership of our destiny, for things don’t just happen of their own accord, rather, we make things occur.



    The quest, rather, is, if our world is broken, how then, do we make it whole again? The first prompt that comes to my mind, is, how did it get broken, in the first place?



    Well, before talking about fixing Washington and the World, perhaps, we should start by asking a more fundamental question. How do parts constitute a whole, that is, what makes up the whole? A good place to start is with the definition of the concept.



    That is, since we’re talking about broken things, and, about making things whole again, that must mean that we already know what makes up a whole. Right? Well, let’s see if we really know what makes up a whole.



    Yes, we’re used to saying that parts make up a whole, but, allow me to rephrase it, what makes up the whole? If you reply that parts make up the whole, then I inquire, what exactly is this make-up? Because, until and unless we address this underlying issue, we’re just overlooking it, not really answering it. It seems like we’re answering, but in reality, it’s an oversight, not an insight, into the nature of the cardinal problem facing us.



    For too long we have been taking for granted the obvious, that parts make up the whole, without as much as requesting an account of exactly, how so, is it that the parts make up the whole? The only answer one gets is that parts make up the whole, because the whole is made up of parts. But, this is only a repetition in reverse order, not really answering the question asked.



    I truly believe that the devil is in the details, that evil hides where we least expect it. My claim is simply that our world is broken because we don’t know how to make it whole, to begin with. That is, we never defined whole in terms of its parts. Proof of this is that the more we try to fix things, the worse things get. That’s because we don’t really know what we’re doing.



    Let me try to explain it with apples. Leadership is clueless, degrading knowledge to a matter of opinion. There seems to be no criterion for making sense, it’s all up to whom you ask.



    The usual argument between two persons regarding a whole issue goes as follows: on the one hand, this, and, on the other hand, that. Granted that the whole question is made up of two contrasting parts, but, how do these parts, besides being parts, make up the whole? Surely, the solution isn’t coming up with a one-armed guy.



    No. Rather, it’s more like on the right shoulder of one of the persons, this, and on the left shoulder of the other person, that; and, standing on the shoulders of both persons, is the solution.

    Dear Friends of Dialogue:



    Good, bright, and hard-working friends of mine tell me that, with things as they are in the world today, that the only way out is again, direct intervention. I couldn’t agree more with them, though, I would further add that, already, always, has this been the case. The question, rather, is what form will help take this time around, in contemporary postmodern times, moving forward.



    The question is, we can get ourselves out of the hole we got ourselves in? Or, do we need outside help getting out? If no, and yes, then, how?



    We shouldn’t let this perfect curative crisis go to waste! Every cloud has a silver lining. Upfront, let me tell you my rediscovery, followed by a brief narrative of the timeline leading to it.



    My claim is that, embedded at the very beginning of the Bible Creation Story Genesis 1:1, lies the Takeaway, in waiting to be rediscovered. The problem is that current translations and interpretations cover-up the take-home message. So, then, we have to go back to the original biblical text in Hebrew to rediscover it.



    This takehome message is such that its absence would surmount to setting humanity up for failure. This obviously cannot be the case. Therefore, there is this one Takeaway that gives us a sure chance of being successful in this world.



    Some may question the whole project idea, saying that it can’t possibly be, after all this time of Bible study, that nobody got wind of it. My reply would be that verily there’s nothing new under the sun; just that things seem to come into focus at their right time, when things are ripe, and never before.



    In any case, don’t knock it until you’ve heard it. Ensuing is the narrative of my claim. Please follow along. My expectation is that this promo motivates you to visit www.Ric4USH21.com, and, while at the website, listen to the podcasts which are a simplification of the content of my book “PaRDeSism ~ Human Science 101”.



    In all this, the goal is that, once recovering the Takeaway, we can now go ahead with the ReConstitution of our World, transition out of Crisis City and unto PaRaDiSe Earth.  It’s that simple.



    Well, without further delay, let’s get started. No algorithm applies here in the quest for the Takeaway, only pure intuition, using our own given primeval common-sense.

    ~

    When things break down, when things don’t meet our expectations, it’s time to go back to square one. If things went wrong, and, the more we try fixing things, the worse they get; then it’s time to reboot the system to initial factory conditions. Return to the very beginning, to the beginning, of the beginning of the beginning. For things have a beginning, and, from there move outward in time. You get the idea.



    The next question is, and, how do we get there, to this primeval beginning, to take a peek, recover the elusive Takeaway, and, then, fast forward to the present, so that we may arrive at the solution in postmodern times?



    By all accounts, there are three arguments that pretend to address this issue of going back to the origin of the universe, making it the theme of our times moving forward. There’s the view of Science, the take of Philosophy, and, then, there’s the insight of religion of Revelation. Though the timeline is obviously Revelation, Philosophy, and, then Science; herein, for the sake of convenience, we’ll actually work our way backward, from the present to the remote past.



    The reason why we need to recur to this triad of versions, is due to the fact that science describes, but does not explain, whereas, philosophy explains, but only the fields of knowledge, falling short of the source at absolute time equal to zero, avoiding division by zero, so to speak. This last matter,

    What we create, here and now, reconstitutes the universe!



    009* Brief overview of book “PaRDeSism ~ Human Science 101”



    Dear Friends of Dialogue:



    There are so many good light books out there, that it’s high time for a heavy weight to balance things out.



    At this point in the series of podcasts, I do make a space and present a quick bird’s eye view of my book. The reason is simply because by now you must have certainly asked the question, how does all this so far tie-in with the book?



     In any case, the title of my book is “PaRDeSism ~ Human Science 101 (PaRDeS primevalism ~ treeseeding our original common-sense on the Bible’s Creation Story 1:1-2:3; Universal World ReConstitution, from Crisis City to PaRaDiSe Earth)”.



    The title pretends to make the statement that, while there may be, on the one hand, the hard physical and biological sciences, and, on the other hand, the softer extensions of the social and political sciences, there has yet to be anything in-between. Sure, there’s the humanities, but these are hardly sciences. Rather, philosophy is the antithesis of science. This simply doesn’t make any sense, unless nonsense is acceptable nowadays out of force of habit.



    If the title is the what, then, the subtitle would be the how. It explains the source that led me to reach the conclusion of the existence of the field, to use this image taken from physics. In a nutshell, it makes the claim that ultimate knowledge, human science, rests on the Primeval Big Bang of the Creation Story. Without giving more away at this early stage, which will be provided in due course, let’s move on with the narrative.



    Our claim is that there is a science that stands tall on the shoulders, on the one hand, of the sciences, and, on the other hand, of the humanities, and this has got to be human science. Introductory level, that is, 101, but not implying in any way, shape, or form, baby-talk. This is no babble, rather, it pretends to layout the cornerstone of civilization moving forward.



    Let’s jump straight into the work, without further ado. Enough introduction has already been made such that in what follows you will surely feel a déjà-vu familiarity with the content. At one point, I was tempted to start the series of podcasts with an outline of my book, but decided against it. The reason simply being that pedagogically it was unsound. The way to do things, is to give samples taken out of real-life experiences that showcase the general principle involved, and then, and only then, move on to present the thesis statement.



    The work is structured in III Parts. Part I deals with “Greece, Israel, and Modernity”. This provides numerous examples of the occurrence of triads in all walks of life, ranging from the core school subjects, to daily experiences. The purpose is to guide the reader to wonder, one swallow doesn’t make spring, granted, but, a whole school clouding the sky, surely does. So, much smoke must be indicating that there’s a fire going on.

    What we create, here and now, reconstitutes the universe!



    008* In a Nutshell of: Creation Story - PaRDeS - BeRe’shIth InBeginningOf/Genesis 1:1



    Dear Friends of Dialogue:



    In following, we express the takeaway message of BeRe’shIth InBeginningOf/Genesis 1:1 (בראשית), in as compact a manner as is practical to express principles for rapid later consultation.



    Our focus will be on the translation from the original Biblical Hebrew, on the one hand, what it does say, and, and on the other hand, what it does not say. Then move on to the interpretation as best suits a modern world moving forward that is driven by science-&-technology, but, incorporating philosophy and religion into the mix as well.



    The old fix, simply can’t, and didn’t stand, the stress-test of time. Instead of giving us PaRaDiSe Earth, it has inherited us Crisis City. For this, it ought to be held accountable. Torah (תורה) means Teaching. So, then, what is it teaching us? Lesson one should be about empowering us to continue the job as grown-ups, of being successful on Earth, continuing Creation, creatively reconstituting by employing this four-tiered foldable powertool of PaRDeS, which, is the Takeaway of the whole Creation Story!



    Just like in pre-K. Lesson one isn’t about US or World history, a chronological narrative of events. Rather, it’s about learning the abc, and, the 123: the science of letters and numbers. In other words, lesson one is about language. Unfortunately, what is missing in teaching is exactly how the whole is made up of parts. Can’t blame the educators, for they themselves weren’t taught it either.



    This is where we intend to make up for the shortcoming. For, without this primeval common-sense explained, we’re perplexed. What happens in practice is that in trying to fix things, we only end by making things worse. Having good intentions, while necessary condition, is not sufficient to get things right. We definitely need to know what we’re doing. Time is running out, we need to shape up before we blow ourselves to kingdom come: children, grandchildren, pets, and all.



    Just as Creation begins with one day of the seven days, verse 1:1 begins the one day. Let’s take it from the top working our way downward. It, verse 1:1a-g, begins with the word 1:1a BeRe’shIth InBeginningOf (בראשית), which, in turn, begins with the letter beth b 1:1a/a (ב). This letter is the gatekeeper. In its role, it is interphase.



    In the Hebrew alefbeth, the ordering is alef a (א) beth b (ב) gimel g (ג), this last letter corresponding to our letter c. By the way, as an aside, this kind of reminds me of the Johnny Walker character on the label. Well, back to the text. Behind the curtain, we have the silent letter alef a (א), while in-between, we have the gatekeeper beth b (ב), and, in front, we have the walking letter gimel g (ג).



    In Hebrew, since numbers correspond to letters, the further cue that alef a (א) is the whole, is telling us that the whole is one! Interpretation is based on the cue coming from the whole and triad in one of the alef a (א). In any case,

    What we create, here and now, reconstitutes the universe!



    007* Executive Summary of: Creation Story - PaRDeS - Bere’shith Genesis 1:1



    Dear Friends of Dialogue:



    The greatest human mystery on Earth has always been how to translate and interpret verse Genesis 1:1 of the Bible Creation Story, for all else follow suit. But, not any which way, rather, in a way that is both, a faithful translation of the original Hebrew, and, that its interpretation is enlightening to a science-&-technology driven modern world. This apparently inane thing, actually makes all the difference in the world. Did I hear anyone say, that the devil was in the details?



    Square one of Bere’shith Genesis 1:1 (בראשית) is a make, or, break situation. How else can we explain the fact that, on the one hand, the Revelation of the Holy Book has been around for the last 3000 thousand years, and, on the other hand, the perennial crisis of civilization, that is only worsening as we speak and write?



    The explanation is simply because getting right, the beginning of the beginning of all times, at absolute time equal to zero, determines the outcome of what comes thereafter. Getting it right from the start, duly empowers us, and insures that we have a chance of being successful in this world; that ultimately, it’s up to us. But, getting it wrong, and, banking our trust in the Bible as we do, will be misleading, and it will blind us down Dead-end lane.



    All the Bible versions out there in print, both Jewish and Christian, with none meeting the above requirement, have all oversighted the Takeaway, and are part to blame for the broken, corrupt, and misguided world we live in. But, fortunately, now we know why Crisis City, the way to PaRaDiSe Earth, and, most importantly, how to achieve it in our lifetime. But, the good news cannot die with me, it needs to see the light of day.



    Herein we state our thesis that PaRDeS PaRaDiSe (פרדס) is the Takeaway. The short answer is, that the virtue of all things is, that the whole is made up of a triad of parts. The Takeaway PaRDeS PaRaDiSe (פרדס) is an acronym standing for the Divine, as whole Sod Secret (סוד), with the human triad of parts, as Derash Discover (דרש), Rémez Remite (רמז), and Peshat Plain (פשט).



    Our claim is that the cornerstone of civilization is traceable to the Bible Creation Story in a series of concentric steps as follows: starting with the background Bere’shith Genesis 1:1-2:3 (בראשית); then, focusing on the one day 1:1-1:5; then, zooming in to verse 1:1; further pointing to the one word Bere’shith InBeginningOf 1:1a (בראשית); then, zeroing in to its opening letter beth b 1:1a/a (ב); and, ultimately, ending with what virtually precedes it all, namely, 1:1a/a álef a (א).



    I will start by putting the results upfront for quick consulting, then then go back to the start, and trace out the whole argument step-by-step. The following leaves out all explanations, same that are provided in the other podcasts. We will highlight Bere’shith Genesis 1:1 (בראשית) in what follows in italics and with quotation marks.
