Tug of War and the Reservoir of Working Knowledge

Throughout a 3D existence there will be many opportunities to experience polarity and seemingly unresolveable tensions. These tensions will be most often experienced in arguments between two seemingly opposing points of view. As any who experience dimensions of awareness, however momentarily, that include dimensions beyond a polarity know, there is always a third point of view that could immediately resolve the conflict. We sometimes call it “compromise” but this word comes with difficult baggage, usually in the form of one or both sides becoming obligated to both hold their intransigent stance while sacrificing something they do not wish to sacrifice. This is the essence of the word “compromise” in our modern lexicon which values power above all other attributes.

In other dimensions or densities, these polarities cease to exist altogether.

In reality, the easiest way to end a tug of war is not to “compromise” or to win it. The easiest and most effective way to end a game of tug of war is to cut the rope. What this means in practical terms is not what one might immediately conclude, namely that the key is mutual destruction or obliteration of warring factions by a third party. In fact quite the opposite. If you cut the rope, everyone falls on their backsides and all observing has a good laugh. Why? Because the game of tug of war is absurd and engaging in it is a waste of time and energy.

Providing this visual image as a sort of ending of dangerous hostilities by a comedic gesture – also offers a key to seeing our paradigm from another dimension. By doing so, your mind has been opened to a possibility that you had not previously considered. It should be clear that I am not endorsing the creation of comedic scenarios and “punking”. I leave it to you to ascertain the true scope and dimensions of what this analogy means as an exercise in creative thinking.

This example will itself become an example of a higher order of thinking. Consider that non-terran races have a very different understanding of the possibilities of human experience and human resolution of experience than we do largely because their interface with existence is itself limited by a much smaller range of experience, what I am calling here the Reservoir of Working Knowledge. Working knowledge is a principle that, at a lower level, we sometimes refer to as an individual’s tool kit, a phrase that is often employed in corporate-speak.

In that frame, a “tool kit” is the combination of personal skills and tools available in an individual’s role at a company. For lower level employees the tools will be considerably smaller than the executive level, and so on, but combined with their personal skills the working knowledge increases or diminishes depending upon those skills. This tool kit becomes their operating reality at the company, and encompasses both their options and their capacity to employ them. It is important to understand that “tool kit” is a misnomer as the experience covers more than simply tools themselves.

In another scenario, the scope – depth, breadth, height…think dimensionality…more than 3D – of your working knowledge could be described as having a small or robust menu of choices. “Menu” here is a pun. It can apply to a restaurant or a software program. The restaurant application should be obvious. But if one uses the term as a software metaphor, the meaning greatly expands. Consider the difference between the rather small menu of the program called Paint, and the robust menu of options available in Adobe Photoshop. While both are image manipulation programs, Paint is comically limited in comparison to Photoshop. There are options so vast in Photoshop that it is unlikely an individual will employ them all, nor master or fully grasp the entirety of their usage unless that individual themselves created the software. Even then, a user might find new ways to employ the options that the creator never thought of, which can in practice transcend the program knowledge of the person who wrote the program.

This exponential understanding of the Reservoir of Working Knowledge can begin to provide a glimpse into the truly remarkable nature of Terran ingenuity and innovation, and why it is so highly coveted. Solutions to seemingly intractable scenarios like the one I provided above is one example of innovative thinking. We call it “out of the box” for a reason. A true “box” has 6 sides and no door or lid, so how to we leave it? How is it that we are capable of thinking “outside of the box” when it encompasses what seems to be the entirety of reality? It requires fourth dimensional thinking. This is not what makes us unique as all beings on an ascendant path achieve this thinking. I am simply pointing out the deeper meaning of the metaphor.

The depth/height/breadth of human capacity is more than what it appears, because there are quantum folds within it that are not readily apparent. One can think of the brain as a metaphor for this expression, but should always keep in mind (pun) that the map is not the territory. Many years ago after sharing a physically expressed energetic experience with a room of fellow travellers, done without words, I spoke a simple truth: “I am not my body. You are my body.” These words reflected the reality that Mind is greater than the boundaries of the physical container, and that Mind itself contains the physical container. As we continue to explore what this concept means for us personally, we grow our perception of Mind into new dimensions that more properly align with its reality. This growth will, as a side effect, contain the kernel that allows us to employ our past skill sets into new dimensions of experience, enfolding the old within the ever-growing capacity of the new. This is the birth of innovation, its activating leading edge, the inception of invention and revolution. Study this well, for in incorporation embodiment of this capacity lies the solution to breaking all prisons.
