Debate thrives on contrasts, yes (affirmative) or no (negative).
Academic debate floats on metaphysical contracts away from vibrational reality that calls for negotiation.
If debate is battle, negotiation is war.
Battle, like bargaining, is win or lose. But negotiation often goes beyond win or lose. Why? Because, in vibrational reality, the law of attraction works.
"You're absolutely right. But I doubt if it works in practice."
"Your argument is air-tight. But I just don't like it, that's all."
"I get you. Very persuasive. You're smarter than he. But, the thing is, he got me. I'm sold on his idea."
The above three examples can be boiled down to this simple formula: Theory yes, but no in practice.
Yes, mental gymnastics of debate is beautiful, and pleasing to our eyes and ears.
Debate works in style; but we doubt if it works in substance as well. It is often away from vibrational reality.
Does God exist?
This debate has been around since time began, perhaps.
We can debate it as part of mental exercise, for we, I, for one, can play both sides. Sometimes, God exists. Sometimes He doesn’t. And yet I’m either religious or atheistic or neither. Am I wrong? You could say I’m a totally a-religious person. True or false? But it’s neither true or false. Or both. Truth is somewhere in between.
Who said, “I’m a religiously-minded agnostic”?
Arnold Toynbee, great historian.
His philosophical bent resonates to me, it is vibrational and gravitational.
This debate (Does God Exist?) takes on three vibrational dimensions: Do we love God? Do we want God? Do we need God? Sometimes or all the time? Who is God? What on earth is God? Where is God? When is God? Why? How He works?
Debate goes on ad infinitum. Aren’t we wasting our time?
Are you with me?
Are you in our vortex? If you don’t like any vortex, the vortex loves you all, atheistic or religious. Not God’s vortex, but nature’s. You can get in on one of those vortexes, like vortexes are abundant in nature.
Arguably, Leonard da Vinci, like other natural-born geniuses, was blessed and nurtured by the natural vortex.
Every time I watch the eddying tides of Naruto, two opposing currents (vortexes) dancing merrily to each other’s vibrational tune, one wonders if life is co-existential, co-evolutional, and co-creational. Yes, reality is S-words. Life is sexy. Life is synthetical. Life is symphonic. Life is synchronistically and serendipitously co-creational. Any reason why debate shouldn’t be vibrational?
Vibrational debate based on spiral principle is here to stay.
Debate as a mere skill is debate-jitsu(討論術).
Debate as a way of life, as it relates to vibrational reality, is debate-doh(究論道).
If 道 (doh) is ice (solid), it is just a phase of amorphous (solid, liquid and gaseous) water道 (michi).
Michi, like water, in its purest form, is colorless, shapeless, odorless. Water has, among all the other attributes; the vibrational power that heals us, body and soul.
Most important, water, when it’s healthy, is hexagonally shaped.
The spiral debate (my coinage) is referred to as hexagonal debate, or soccer debate, because the proposition of spiral debate vibrates, attracts, rotates (dances) around each other’s friendly opponent case (pro or con). All vibrational debates dance and sing around an ever-spinning issue.
What an amazing Milky Way! What a wondrous Galaxy! The hexagonal debate!
