The pair of pure vectors
The Balance Dynamic (DBM) is a method and a formal representation that imagines the natural world subject to two opposing forces, each of which is subject to its own logic, that is separate and independent of the other.
The first vector is a derivative upward or counter-gravitational means tending to the sky. Psycho-social is the expression of the evolution, the assertion of individuality, the aspiration to divine status, the “have to be” or “having become”. Politically corresponds to the movements inspired by the affirmation of a single ideology, religion, law … totalitarian, absolute. From an individual point, is the ego or the selective transcendence, the award research in the hereafter.
The second vector is a derivative or counter-gravitational-upward: means aspire to the ground. Psycho-socially is the vision of living beings like sheep or as raw material; the materialistic economy or metabolic process as succession of anabolism and catabolism, the processing of structures tending to the maximum non-differentiation; indifference and materialistic manipulation of the masses through populist forms of government, the “bread and circus” of market laws absolutised and overproduction combined excess consumption are the socio-political traits.
The action generated by the friction of alternation
The horizontal advance motion isn’t a vector natural but cultural of animate beings, animals and human beings among them. They exploit to their advantage each of the two carriers to generate its own motion: the action. Unlike the two carriers whose purpose is to unload its force in the direction to which they tend, phasing out all intermediate interference (a perfect example from this point of view is reported by Elias Canetti when he tells the Sultan that to have perfect control of the state expels all the people shooting off guns in the immovable), in the horizontal motion the action is susceptible of interpretation and therefore of choice. Greater are the skills of the forces and greater will be the variety of actions potentially possible.
By a symbolic point of view, the dynamic tangential or horizontal is the center of the symbol of the Cross living with this meaning in all cultures (an example is the original figure of the Indian Swastika-see R. Guenon): it represents the point balance between the tendency to descend and ascend to that, however, bent corners at the ends of the swastika Indian express perfectly the progress that stems from this dynamic equilibrium.
Dynamic Balancing portrays a dynamo which uses the oscillation of the two arms of the scale: to generate power and then move the scale can not stand still, neither would be allowed. Only the government swing by animate beings allows dynamism. This can be subject to random and historical cycles of the golden age and the kali yuga (micro or macro size), but can be moderated and directed by higher functions of living beings. On humans, in particular, this responsibility rests primarily ethical and spiritual. Any tendency to exaggerate one of the two dynamics will lose more and more control of the situation and the consequences will only be dramatic; it is true both in the case that this force reaches its point of no return, and in the more common : when it is necessary to resort intensively the opposing force , because it has lingered for too enjoy the benefits of the first at the cost of the damage caused in the rest of the ecosystem , which ended up ignoring .
The interest that these two general vectors plays for the DBM is not scientific, but basically cultural, as well anthropological, spiritual, social, psychological.
Human beings tend to perceive the social forces in a dialectic: Ascension against gravitational and vice versa in order to avoid their involvement in the energetic and moral in the dynamic management of balance that creates the horizontal proceed, advancing interactive generated from the exploitation of the two carriers. From this opposition arises the illusion of duality and the main addictions or forms of attachment identified in many cultures such as Buddhist.
We find this representation in many cultures, but I especially like to remember that the practice of Tai-Chi or Chinese gymnastics distinguishes two types of gestures: one shaped bracket (square or cube) related to the land and the circular (circle or sphere) associated with the sky.
This method has value only in a theoretical, but every time can drive certain techniques. In my experience I could develop it, adapting it to some clinical practices, organizational, therapeutic, social and so on. This is not to invent new instruments, but rather to use the ones we have in a compensatory, collaborative and negotiation.
