Strange Light

Saturday Evening April 29th 2023

This light is emanating from the south west horizon. The sun has just set to the west and there is no beam of light connected to the source from the west (right side of picture). The clouds steaming in the foreground of the light are also unusual.

Every now and then I see strange things in the sky. A couple of times in Hawaii I saw a bright hole open up in the night sky. As the hole grew larger it revealed a daylight sky on the other side. The hole then sucked up into itself and disappeared returning to a night sky. I learned many years later that these apparitions were nuclear explosion tests that were being conducted somewhere between the thermosphere and troposphere.

Pilots, nurses and doctors seem to have the same type of cognitive bias. They are too close to the subject matter yet too far from the expertise required to solve the anomaly. My friends that have taken on these professions are intimate examples of this. My pilot friend believes in all sorts of woo. My nurse friend was very spiritual and took her own life. And my doctor friend was a total sexual deviate and just plain stupid. We are no longer in communication.

The point I am making is, some people that may seem like they qualify to have knowledge on a particular field may very well be the LAST person to actually know what is going on. As we see with incredibly gifted people. They are almost always endowed with a fatal flaw. We humans seem to achieve more symbiotically by assigning specific tasks to individuals without them being informed of the whole complexity. We depend on this efficiency but suffer for it.

I wrote an article on living a “Dolly Zoomed Life” and I think this speaks volumes as to how to elevate the suffering from near and far sighted perspective. Wing Chun is Dynamic Balance of Structure.

Chum Kiu – The Bridge to Understanding

Discovery and application are often separate. The use of Wing Chun’s chum kiu allows us to apply the discovery from our siu nim tao. Shortly after Hertz’s passing Marconi received the Nobel prize for the radio. Discover and apply.

I can’t help but to make the correlation between the hemispheres of producing/consuming versus reflecting/creating. I have referred to this as 4D Flow (4th Dimension) And to speak reasonably, having a dynamic balance between these contrasting behaviors can have profound affects on our overall health, emotional wealth and happiness. 4D Flow may also offer an escape from the dogma of dualism.

The modern man in me is compelled to produce and consume, to plan and execute, to pursue my will. Yet the intuitive human within me foils the best laid plans by insisting upon reflection to the point of paralysis through analysis.

Like when Grasshopper from the 70s hit TV show Kung Fu would (often right before being attacked by a bunch of Cowboys) drift off into reflection on the days back when he was a young child training in the Shaolin monastery. No wonder he didn’t get his ass kicked day dreaming like that. But he would snap out of it just in the nick of time and calmly hand out lickings like candy at a birthday party. “3 is an earthly universal factor – triangulation is key.” -Sifu Z

Kung Fu would have us both be a floor wax and a desert topping. Grasshopper would both reflect and visualize creative solutions. Then he would just at the right time mind you execute and produce results. Sifu Z Wing Chun Rule “Transition over transaction”.

As a Kung Fu master I think it’s only fair to make it clear, my claim is not to have mastered that balance but rather to have experienced and at times, have command over that balance. No, the claim of a Kung Fu master is more to communicate and express a beautiful method of attaining that balance to the future through the use of Wing Chun, the Jewel of China, the most efficient method of self correction, self-defense, self reflection and selfless action. A constant thread to humanity like the constant of the speed of light.

0, there is no such thing. 1, is individual – an illusion. 2, is squared and gets you there. 3, the working factor – three is we. 4, gets you out the door – the quantum, a real departure from common logic. It is strange, a symbiosis that is self aware yet unaware of it’s symbiosis. ⁃ Sifu Z
