About? Just about one man’s ideas (sometimes adopted from others) regarding Human Evolution as expressed by certain possibilities and concepts of New Tribalism…as a “valid path” of Human Evolution on Urth.
I think it is only in the new combinations of Thought Systems, that I might achieve uniqueness. Many philosophies have touched me, in my Life, and I try to harmonize what I can of these. Give them New Life and vitality, so as to freshen their usefulness to Humanity Of Urth.
These thoughts are predicated on the following basic concepts.
(1) “Enlightened”, Well Educated and Devoted, smaller groups of Humans can better self-determine their Ways of Life and their Cultural Destinies…IF they go about this quest in “the right ways”…ways that minimize error and maximize possibilities for achievement in Our quest for Evolution. New Tribes, with New Knowledge and New Morality, has a better chance at maintaining a Dynamic Balance of Living than “Civilization” and some of the “Old Tribes”. New Tribes, if well considered and designed, will know when “Enough is Enough” in the utilization of Human Power.
(2) Nature and the Natural Environment does provide the best kind of setting for the establishment of “Superior Peoples”.
(3) There has to be other kinds of “Superiority” (Goodness achieving Moralities) to have Equal Place to “Superior Technology” when Peoples endeavor to become More and Better…in their Individuality and in their Social Constructs.
(4) The ways of “devolution” (that which goes against the revealed Goodness mandates of CREATOR) must become recognized and minimized. Do We, Individually, inspire fear, or Love? Love of Goodness being Our Greatest Guide To Superior Living.
These ideas are of the imagining design seed type, that, hopefully, will find fertile medium in Many Good Human Minds and Hearts. Minds and “Hearts” that will see and agree with, some, or all, of my suggestions.
The “Ideal” for me, being the sharing of compatible and kindred ideas, from compatible and kindred members of the Human Species and Others. And really Ideal would be experiencing actual steps taken and actual work done to turn these complex visions into Happy Reality.
“Steps Taken” did happen on the internet. A Yahoo Group was begun, in about 2001, in which a Narbarian Leadership System…called “Tri-Sev” was experimentally started. The “TriSev” was (is?) intended to provide enlightened decision making in the actual construction of a New Narbarian Tribe. I’ll write more about this later in this blog.
What do I mean when I use the word “vision”? See definitions below.
the act or power of sensing with the eyes; sight.
the act or power of anticipating that which will or may come to be:
prophetic vision; the vision of an entrepreneur. Can entrepreneurship be used in a non-mammonite context? A non-capitalist expression of the quest for wealth?
an experience in which a personage, thing, or event appears vividly or credibly to the mind, although not actually present, often under the influence of a divine or other agency:
a heavenly messenger appearing in a vision.
I do not claim, or have ever claimed, to receive direct “influence” from any Divine or “other agency”. Not that I am aware of anyway.
Compare hallucination(def 1). I think of “hallucination” as “seeing what is not Truthfully there”…not what could be, or should be.
a scene, person, etc., of extraordinary beauty:
The sky was a vision of red and pink.
I see a Possible People and their cultural constructs, of “extraordinary beauty”. “Beautiful” to me anyway.
to envision, or picture mentally:
She tried to vision herself in a past century.
I try to envision myself and others in the Future. I try to see the best forms of what SHOULD be…in the Human Experience. This mental activity, of course, is very subjective and personal.

2. perception, discernment. 4. apparition, phantasm, chimera.
4. See dream.
“Perception” is a good word. I like it. It is not pretentious. I much prefer saying that I have a “perception”, rather than a “vision”.
I think of dreaming to require a state of sleep…or maybe “trance”. I am fully awake when I try to envision a Better World and Humanity.
The “perception”, of course, comes from my Personality and Imagination.

So, the above is some of what this Narbarian idea is all about.
