    Default Dichotomy

    Number: odd.
    Loci: Not odd

    Does the loci number the number in the loci?
    No.

    What does the loci number number?

    The loci number is a statement of classification within a greater structure. The individual is an organic constituent within this structure. As such, the individuals unite to establish structure. Together, they satisfy a definition of structure.

    When singularly examined, we realize we are guilty of presuming each is a replica of the greater host. Individuality demands otherwise...

    1 + 1 + ... = system
    system -1 -1 ... =/= individual

    United we stand.
    Divided we are free.

    How true.

    One does not divide.
    It is divided only by an outside agent.

    A wisdom gone?
    I hope not.

    Is a dichotomy a two party?
    Only when it is finished.

    To divide ourselves and others is only human, otherwise we wouldn't have races, phrenology or political parties

    An outside division is easier to see.

    When we divide others into categories we're being "logical," when others place us in a category they're being racist/sexist/agist/intolerant. Forgetting the log in our own eyes it seems

    We are so accustomed to dividing that we often divide ourselves- I'm a human bento box... it happens, we're all control freaks in a way and divisions are a manner of controlling.

    To name is to have power, to divide is to get power over naming. Look at the scramble for Africa

    Yes.

    That reminds me of my school days. The teachers labelled me as a bad student, and the teachers were labelled by me as idiots.

    One day the teacher of history changed. I did not label her and she did not label me.
    We two had interesting conversations in class. That kind of thing may happen when we stop to label.

    In general discussion is banned in Finnish schools, especially in the college.
    Free exchange of ideas is a threat to the authority figure.
    Authority is control. Control is power. Power is division.
    A threat to power is questions asked.

    In Africa, as it was in the Balkans, a minority in one country is a majority in the neighbour country. Thereby the civil war spreads from one country to another, and yet to another.

    In Switzerland they have four nationalities. Why the Swiss live in peace? They do not divide? They do.

    They are Swiss in the first place. Why? The Swisshood was not forced on them.
    It was the invention of the free peasant.

    I agree with whatever and Night.
    A dichotomy is a rebound.

    Your morality is in the hand of the other.
    The morality of the other is in your hand.
