A sort of first summary.
A Common Denominator Among All People Of All Cultures
Focussing is useful, practical and natural with anything you want. Focussing got us out of the mud and cold and hunger. And focussing is indispensible for achieving any higher goal in life. But,
Humans have forgotten the broadband mode. The original practical use of broadband sensing is obsolete and redundant. Our ancestors fears and daily insecurity have been overcome. There is no need to be on the watch, or ready to be watchful all the time, as animals need to be, to survive.
But animals don't merely secure their physical survival by broadbanding. Throughout evolution, going broadband has been the unquestionable and natural way to switch off, stop doing everything and be still for a moment. And for animals, it is a constant reminder of how it feels to be now and still. Broadbanding is an attitude to life, it's a way to be, it opens up another dimension of an individuals relationship with the world, of feeling part of the whole.
There's nothing dramatic about it, it won't blow your mind, there is nothing really fascinating or attractive to it, ... in itself it is very normal - it is nothing special - any animal can do it ... maybe the only really fascinating thing, is what makes me write: how we've lost this ability, and have become so completely blind to it and the possibilities and potential it has.
Broadbanding belongs with that collection of rare words like love, and empathy, as a state of being where the subject is intimately involved with the object.
It's reliable, easy and natural. Anyone of any culture could do ... whatever their focussed beliefs. It's in the human make up. It's not a new religion, it's a vital part of the original ancient way of being. It's a common denominator among all creatures and people of all cultures. It could be a great unifying factor for creatures and people of all cultures.
