TWO IS ONE, AND ONE IS TWO

BY DAN VALENTI

PLANET VALENTI NEWS AND COMMENTARY

(FORTRESS OF SOLITUDE WEDNESDAY MAY 9, 2018) — We stated Monday that “all dichotomies are false” and left it there — at least until the redoubtable scholar and semanticist Dr. Charles Trzcinka issued an implicit challenge against such brevity, philosophical, poetic, or otherwise. In doing so, the estimable good doctor performed one of the greatest and most miraculous deeds one person can perform for another in these flitting times: He got us to think, and so we shall expound on our dictum, not to discover details of our insight so unspokenly well know to us but to attempt to share them. Therein always lies the rub.

To disprove our truism, one would have to put forth a true dichotomy. No one has been able to do so, because what we call “opposites,” it being a good and useful word, bear that attribute seemingly, apparently. That being said, THE PLANET is not out to convince anyone of anything, least of all what common sense aided by about 50 years of deep thought would be able to articulate let alone show in several hundred words.

East-West. Good-bad. Up-down. Heads-tails. At first look, these might seem polar opposites (speaking of the poles, North and South cap the pinnacles of a singular sphere). Actually, they are complements needing each the other for they very existence, as in the religious bromide that explains the existence of “evil” so that we might know “good.” Countless examples abound. One of THE PLANET‘s favorites involves the “orange peel” map of the world, producing what looks like a horizontal series of pointy footballs joined together at the hip. On such cartography, east is east, west is west, and never the mark twain do they meet.

The actual each, however, is as much like an orange peel map as a stalk of asparagus resembles a car seat. A more realistic depiction of earth can be found in the hallowed desk globe, known to all school children (at least at one time). We remember feeling enthralled looking at our globe, tilted correctly on its axis and providing mountains in bas relief. Place a finger on Pittsfield, Massachusetts, as we often did, and spin the globe from left to right. What happens?

You eventually end up where you stated, proving that not only does the twin meet but that it loses its duality. Go west far and long enough and eventually you head without changing direction. There are numberless examples of this “miracle” in the dichotomies of life. We only have to be aware. With that, THE PLANET spares everyone our ruminations on good and bad (“evil” being an unreal human construct in any kind of literal use).

The point in making our original claim about dichotomy? To indirectly give the thinking person reason to dismiss the truth behind the political divisions that plague (and have paralyzed) city, state, and federal politics. Fortunately, the screaming heads that dominate the 24-hour news cycle illustrate the point far better than we can.

Pro-Trump, anti-Trump. Diehard Democrats, Drink-the-Koolaid  Republicans. For immigration, against immigration. Such attitudes and areas derive their phantasmic substance only because we invest in them our pre-existing conditions, the biases, prejudices, and small-mindedness that we desperately cling to so that we may avoid the threat of seeing things AS THEY ARE.

Look at the globe, this time from space. All is one. One is all. We share a spinning rock hurtling through deepest space.

There are, and there cannot be, dichotomies.

    The Pittsfield Ma. School budget has no opposition. It is a dog and pony show like no other.Its amazing how few questions there are by these councilors as to how McCandless and Curtis spend my money.Why is it that the idea of spending less money on a better School system does not exist.The question of consolidation does not exist.A plan for Pittsfield schools in 3 years does not exist.
    Why we allowed Eberwien and Curtis to look on the internet for answers to Pittsfields school is our fault.Recently Curtis has shown the school committee a Syracuse schools Website and Joe fell in love.The committee was smitten and Mrs Taylor was beside herself with enthusiasm of Joe’s find.She always acts as if she is the only advocate of education.
    In the end its the City Councils budget.I just wish there was a passion by councilors to have a complete understanding of exactly how my dollars are spent.Also ask about how cash is handled in the schools.

          These progressives just keep making themselves look dumber by the day. They predicted Trump would start a war with North Korea. The exact opposite happened! So when they say backing out of the Iran deal is bad, you can be pretty sure it’s not. These liberal morons are too stupid to realize that a new deal will be worked out, one much better than Obama’s giveaway.
          And they are also trying to block the very first woman to become CIA director. They say they are for women, what a bunch of liars.

            The Progressives will say and do anything to put down President Trump and his supporters. I was told by someone on this board that I really don’t care about the hostages coming home tonight despite the fact that I have been going on and on about the poor American hostage who did come home and died shortly after his return. He was destroyed by North Korea and myself and many others were really upset about it.

            Progressives only support and cheer on women who think just like they do. ANY woman with different ideas is a threat.

      The federal government gained a record sum in taxes during the month of April, marking its largest monthly budget surplus ever, according to the Congressional Budget Office.

      According to the report, the United States spent $297 billion last month, but took in a whopping $515 billion in taxes, giving us a surplus of $218 billion and beating the previously held record of $190 billion back in 2001.

    Chip sealing is going to be banned by the city? OK so all of these holes are going to be with us until sometime in the very distant future when the city can afford to repave all of these roads?

    Last I heard the schools get most of the new Linda Tyer budget money for their large salaries and not much is left over. How is this going to work when there is no money for road repair and chip sealing is all we have? Did Berkshire Health Systems agree to fork over a million dollars? Dan V. you need to do an article on this million dollars that Progressives want from Berkshire Health Systems since they have run out of money due to their poor money management.

      So a petition to stop chip sealing from a bunch of whiners who know nothing about road maintenance.
      It will be decades before the roads are milled and repaved. And milled/repaved road repairs don’t last very long. And the roads are left in the milled state – which has the same negative effects these whiners are claiming chip sealing has – for a pretty lengthy time.
      Ask yourself, why are warning sings for motorcyclists put up for milled roads but not for chip sealed roads? And anyone who states chip sealed roads are slippery is either stupid or lying.

        And when these whiners’ roads that weren’t chip sealed turn into a bunch of potholes they’ll be complaining about that next.

          The city paid huge bucks for a road asset management plan. Why aren’t they using it?

          Granted they could have gotten the same results for 10% of the price, or even not done it at all because they aren’t using it.

            Ironically, the key recommendation of the road management plan was to prevent streets from deteriorating to the point where major repairs were needed. Yea, they’re really following that one!!!

        Check again Stevie…Fox news is saying that Iranians in Syria have killed Americans.. dun ta dun taaaaa…where have I heard this song before? Oh yeah..”weapons of mass destruction” in Iraq. How did that bullshit line work out for many american families who lost so many sons and daughters and fathers? Not too good Stevie and that is the very same path we find ourselves on now. Looks like Trump is going to get his dream war sooner than we all thought

    So sad that Berkshire County people can’t be happy for all that President Trump is doing for this country. His historic meeting with the North Korean president, bringing home hostages, and keeping our economy growing everyday with people having more money to spend. It’s all because they think the sun rises and sets on the Progressive agenda, an agenda, by the way, which has done nothing but destroy this area.
