So the basics of karma really do seem to fit the bill in terms of MBT and our everyday experience, what do you think? The interesting thing though, is that karma is sort of unique in that it quantifies the intent packets that alter the QoC. Hence i find going through a day with karma in the back of my mind a useful tool for policing the intent that i produce continuously.
Taking it further, the Tibetan view is that all that happens to you is karma and that nothing can happen to you, if you have not collected karma to enable it. Hence an assassin cannot gun you down, if you have no negative karma. Anyone got thoughts or experiences that can put (part of) that into a MBT perspective?
The Intent of MBTOE is to move beyond legacy paradigms (Hinduism, Buddhism, Christianity etc) and adopt this new language and symbology, which is more precise and universal.
The correct protocol is to note such overlaps, integrate this experience with MBTOE, then progress to using this new common language, otherwise we will remain the Tower of Babel.
At the day to day PMR experience level, we are indeed feedback grazers, keeping in mind that short term unpleasantness may be associated with a good intent, but the feedback kicks in after and is eternal, and the impact on QoC is a gift that keeps on giving.
Karma, feedback, you reap what you sow....all of this points to good intent being "intelligent selfishness", or big picture selfishness. PMR selfishness is just plain dumb and counter productive.
an intent will cause feedback on the physical (immediate), mental (relates to PMR effectiveness), and emotional levels, in the short, medium and longer term. I believe NPMR feedback can be classified as emotional. Like a laser beam splitter, the system will be sending feedback to our IUOC as quality ticks +/-, and as well sending feedback to our FWAU as positive or negative emotions.
the trick of life is parsing out negative emotions, and doing self tests to identify negative feedback, vs constructive signalling regarding boredom, loneliness, PMR risk management, sensor platform maintenance....and so on.
if you are bored and lonely, and are not taking care of your retirement plan or sensor platform, there will be so many negative emotions floating around, you won't know which way is up
A good intent is a beautiful glass figurine or seashell, that you pick up and put on a shelf, and it is there to give you pleasure, into eternity
A bad intent is a piece of dog dropping, wrapped in paper, that you stick in your pocket, on a hot day, on the way to a meeting with someone important.
