Colors of Principle
Colors are representative of principle to me. These are personal associations and I thought I’d write briefly about these associations since it may facilitate understanding of Seq Comp.
Blue represents liberty, which is the basis for objective morality. If not imposed on physically or circumstantially (as it relates to opportunity) a person can do anything they please, so long as what they do does not prevent anyone else from doing what they want to do. Opportunity is based on systems, systems based on collective consent, therefore systems that leave people circumstantially trapped are collective imposition on disadvantaged individuals. I associate the color blue with liberty because blue is the color of the sky and represents the border of man’s dominion.
White represents truth, untainted motivation, the predecessor of truth which is objectivity. Objectivity is a product of a higher value of the truth than any other object. Otherwise, when truth creates a threat to an object you like, you will hide from the truth to preserve that value.
Grey represents order or cause and effect. Based on the idea that I do not subscribe to that there was nothing (black) and then there was the big bang (white) cause and effect. Grey is the balanced mixture and so I associate grey with cause and effect.
Red represents value which includes degrees of like and love. It is plus or minus. All value is based on the feelings an object produces even if indirectly where the object advances the procurement of another object. Red is what you like. Also represents factions, where people who are liked more are held in higher esteem and they are protected through bias. A world that’s built on value/like/love will tear itself to shreds, as human beings have been doing since the dawn of civilization. Communication cannot take place because the truth cannot be known since each individual and each faction ignores elements of the truth to protect the value of their ideas, members, and themselves.
I explained in the beginning that using color associations may be a tool in helping people understand seq comp. Above are the purposes of all thoughts anyone has ever had. It’s a determination of whether you like something (value red), whether it is good or bad morally (imposition blue), whether it is a cause or an effect (grey), and whether it is true or false. True or false (white) is better expressed if it is consistent with what you know or if it contradicts something that you know.
My red consists of those things I like but my highest values are liberty, truth, and order, where I seek out causes that produce effects and consider the effects of those effects to understand results, which is an essential element of truth. Liberty is my highest value because it is the truth(all people at all times want to do what they want to do), and truth is my highest value since truth is required for liberty (self deception harms motivation and know how). All other subjective values are lower than the value of liberty and truth, where cause and effect is an element of truth. I wear a lot of blue, white, and grey based on what those colors represent to me.
Other color associations I have that are a product of these base principles are as follows:
Purple represents balance. Where red is disadvantage and blue is advantage and a balanced mixture of the colors produces purple. This isn’t a base principle because it is a product of value (advantage disadvantage + or – is value) and the circumstances that produce the discrepancy (cause and effect).
Yellow represents knowledge, the light that illuminates the darkness. Knowledge is understanding the points of function that produce a subject.
Orange represents tyranny. A tyrant is someone who exercises their liberty without respect to the liberty of others. Which includes systemic imposition based on advantage without concern for the disadvantages created for others.
