The Tacit Dimension lf Learning Ortho-Bionomy


"Ortho-Bionomy can't be taught, it must be caught."



"We can know more than we can tell." 



The "tacit dimension" that Polanyi studied can be thought of as eqquivalent to what in Ortho-Bionomy is known as Phase 6. Though Phase 6 is typically referred to as 'energy' work I have not found it useful for myself to think of it in terms of 'energy.' This usage is what Fowler, in his Modern English Usage, a "borrowed technicality." This is usually not a good thing, leads to confusion and blocks understanding of what may really be going on. I can argue that energy is here a metaphor but some metaphors are better than others.


I could also defend this usage from a phenomenological viewpoint. The experience we have can be one of something pushing, drawing, resisting. 

The vision is for Ongoingness; Life continuing on . . . .


Flaneur -- Out for a Stroll


I am I and my circumstance; and, if I do not save it, I do not save myself.                              



Changing the Conversation

Whatever affects one directly affects all indirectly. For some strange reason I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be. And you can never be what you ought to be until I am what I ought to be––this is the interrelated structure of reality.
