Reality the System v Corruption the Mode

Look here…

Nothing I’m saying with regard to reality or corruption is subjective — or influenced, or influenceable, or skewed or affected by or according to feelings, beliefs or interpretation.

When all is said and done, it all boils down to biomechanics in their purest form.

Reality is a system. Corruption is a mode, which is currently infecting, and working to destroy and repurpose systems and functions of reality.

As I’ve mentioned in previous works, both reality and corruption are living sentient beings. Reality is the phenomenon humans would rightfully refer to as “God”, and corruption is the phenomenon humans would rightfully call “devil”.

Since I’ve addressed these subjects in previous works, and then also plan to explore them further in future material, I’d like to take a bit of time to focus on the difference between modes and systems.

You see, modes and systems are not considerably equal, or for that fact, mutually comparable in any way. This is very important to understand, as regardless of how complex, intricate or dynamic modes can be or become, they can only mimic, or be derivative from, or act within or against systems at best. Modes are “fractal” or “piecemeal” entities, and not whole or emergent. This means that they can never be or become, or produce, or function in place of true or pure systems in their own right.

Then too, pure systems can never perfectly scale down to the limits, processes, functions or deficiencies of modes. It’s the difference between [say] a computer virus and the *operating system it infects and seeks to subdue or exploit, or the body of an organism vs the viruses that would try to subdue and exploit it.

In both cases, the virus would be a mode, and what the viruses would seek to infiltrate and infect would be the systems.

Systems are whole, integrative, interdependent entities, which are comprised of mutually autonomous, yet, symbiotic and bound agents and functions, which work in tandem to produce balance, equilibrium and sustainability.

Modes can be either singular or even amalgamations of processes which serve to produce effects, outcomes, states of being, structures, or serve as means for navigating to or between conceptual structures or locations.

A mode is basically how something is done and/or produced, whereas a system is simply how something is

There’s no real comparison between systems and modes. One could never effectively scale to match the other.

*Because human languages are fairly colloquial, more often than not, the terms ‘system’ and ‘mode’ can be used synonymously and/or interchangeably. For instance, a *computer operating system is technically a mode, as the processes and components its comprised of are incapable of achieving awareness, which would sum to form a symbiosis that would translate into a self-sustaining and self aware entity — which would be fully realized AI.

Social perceptions of and/or pertaining to the concept of systems, and then how systems actually are and/or function in reality aren’t mutually compatible at the conceptual level — even though there’s only one word to describe them both.

What humans produce and call “systems” are actually modes, as all things derivative from perceptive valuation and/or idealism trace back to parasitism, which traces back to corruption, which in and of themselves are modes. Modes beget modes, whereas systems beget systems.

For instance, parasitism is just a mode, whereas autonomy is both a literal function and requirement of reality — which in its own right, is indicative of ‘the achievement of wholeness’ within or pertaining to a true system.

All things that are of corruption, in essence, fall back to modes, whereas all things that are authentic, and of and/or which represent reality are systemic and whole. For instance, truth (that is, what’s consistent with reality) is whole and all-encompassing, whereas knowledge is fractal, subjective and modal. Natural environments are systemic and whole, whereas society and cultures are modal. Authority is modal whereas symbiosis and mutualism are systemic. Anything that’s created is modal, whereas everything that’s emergent is systemic.

I’d say the main difference between systems and modes is that elements, agents and functions within systems share a core sense of awareness, which allows them to achieve a state of symbiosis, and then tune to, and adapt and self-repair by and according to the frame they operate and coexist within — whereas functions and agents of modes generally lack awareness, and in many or most cases, do not require awareness at all, in order to produce desired outcomes or effects. It’s the difference between a body and a machine — between a tree and a house. One must be acted upon in order to sustain, whereas the other will simply sustain through a life cycle, if not acted upon.

When you understand why corruption at its best is only a mode, whereas reality is a system — and not just a system, but the system of all systems, you quickly realize why serving as an agent of corruption is an exercise in futility.

In all instances, choosing to serve a mode over and ahead of the system the mode is performing within, is futile, in that even in the event of the mode effectively infiltrating, subduing and neutralizing the system, the mode inevitably self-terminates along with the very system it works so hard to subdue and exploit.

Let me bring it all home for you though…

Reality views and treats corruption as a mortal enemy, in the same way your own body would treat and recognize gangrene as a mortal enemy — as a threat to your organs, and systems, and even to your very existence.

How tuned a being is to either reality [the system], or corruption [the mode] is ultimately what determines what happens to them moving into their next life cycle(s).

Every human gets to decide whether or not they will live in and for reality, or as an agent of corruption — cocooned within their internal narrative.

The more you live and function as an agent of corruption in this life cycle, towards destroying parts of, and/or creating and perpetuating imbalances within reality, is the more suffering and damage you will ultimately incur, moving into your coming life cycles — as natural consequences are absolutely inescapable.

Every life form and agent of every system throughout eternity, and throughout the unfathomable expanses of both existence and nonexistence ultimately has and/or will have the value of their potential and impacts weighted against them by reality itself.

Your “value” is determined by and according to the impacts you make on reality, and has nothing to do with the impacts you make on other people’s perceptions or (perceived) “social systems”.

If you live by, for or according to the internal narrative, then you’re corrupt. It’s literally that simple.

It doesn’t matter what you believe, or how “moral” you feel your thinking and actions are…

If the internal narrative is playing louder in your mind than reality is, then you’re an agent of corruption.

This assessment is not subjective in any way.

To live within and/or for the internal narrative is to live by and according to a mode that’s fundamentally divorced from reality. Anything that’s divorced from reality both is and only can be corrupt — in the same way that any cell on your body that’s fundamentally divorced from, and ignorant to the networks of cooperative systems that facilitate your being and autonomy (as a life form) would be considered “diseased” or “defective” for not hearing, responding to or interacting with the greater sum of you.

For instance, if a cell on your body hears and responds to the frequency of cancer (the disease) over hearing, cooperating with and responding to the the natural frequency and/or vibratory signature of your body, that would only happen because the cell was corrupted.

If your “identity”, which is the collection of meanings, beliefs, symbols, habits, practices, sociological treatments and effects, groups, enhancements, and attitudes, actions, outlooks and behaviors that you’ve acquired and seek to self actualize through — which amalgamate to the story you tell yourself about the world around you, and your value and place within it, drowns reality out to the point that you prioritize “your character” over and ahead of reality itself, then you are corrupt.

That means you’re beholden to the mode of corruption — and as such, fundamentally out of sync with the system of reality.

If your feelings and beliefs play louder in your mind than reality itself, and thus prevent you from recognizing and synching up with reality, then you are corrupt.

If your internal sense of “justice” takes precedence over reality, to the tune that imposing your will and sense of righteousness and order onto others performing within reality is more important to you than recognizing, adapting to and being in the flow of reality, then you are corrupt.

If you’re corrupt, then it means you serve a mode which is fundamentally and diametrically opposed to the system of reality itself.

This is not a subjective analysis, it’s absolute. What are you part of and tuned to? The system or the mode?
