Each solving for different problems while rowing in-sync with others

Red and Yellow, Black and White- precious in our sight

Charley Groth posts…Understand that I am saying both of these guys I have been exchanging views with are what I would call very good people. They have just been so blinded by the teachings of their religion that they are trapped in it and unable to consider anything beyond Christian dogma.

Roger G Jolley Charley, I’ve been studying this phenomenon of “blindness” across disciplines and many fields of science and have found some insights I deploy as operational conclusions.

In most instances under observation the key factor seems to be ones choice to remain fixated upon one’s narrow, internal narrative and craft conscious conclusions about the “outside” world from that inner-narrative.

Incoming senses are blunted, ignored in favor of pre-determined conclusions…arrived at before the fact.   Some people choose to believe the dialogue in their head under the impression that is thinking…then they don’t believe or trust their own senses and can not see the impact of their actions, utterances or pattern of behavior upon all the others with which one share his or her life.

Another operational factor is, we are all solving different problems from the obvious and visible problem, but we frequently and mistakenly believe others are all doing that same thing we are.  We act and believe differently because despite similar activity, each is solving for a different problem set.


We see three street musicians doing the same thing, performing their show with a bucket or violin case at their feet for a cash-gesture.  Each performer is solving for a different problem, one wants to get out of the house and work on some of his arrangements, another needs the money for rent, another is hoping to meet some girls, yet they are all “doing the same thing,” right?

We all watch a football game, there is only one game and many of us, right?  Well, its not that simple.  Each observer is watching their own private game, thinking everyone else is seeing exactly what he or she is seeing.  Yet, each observer is “solving for a different problem set” and is coloring all of their observations from their particular mind set.

The man who has a chance encounter with his ex-wife and new spouse (and his team loses) see’s a different football game from the game a woman see’s, who know’s nothing about the game but is delighted her husband is in such a good mood because his team is winning.

Each and every observer is seeing something different because they are watching out for different things and solving for a different problem set.

“They” are not just control-freaks, authoritarian,  stubborn, or pig-headed and refusing to acknowledge what is standing right in front of them and obvious to you, others are literally processing the same observed information you are getting but using that observation for a different purpose and honestly do not see what you see…until you help them see what you see.  We can agree on the score but we will never agree on what the score means, reality doesn’t work that way…rgj 6.13.11

I am leader of a team creating an organization to serve the global human family in a similar way that the Chamber of Commerce serves the business community.

The International Chamber of Justice will deliver services online and advocate for local individuals with both corporate sectors; the government and commerce sectors.

We expect to have a local body in each U.S. County, matching the advocacy power of the Commerce Sector with “We the People Power.”

Our International growth will be independent of our domestic development, undertaken by individuals within their own particular political and social system.

Our Mission includes protecting and promoting the economic interest of our members while reconciling our personal relationship with government, which we need to do its job, and with the commerce sector that we need for jobs, and to buy goods and services.

We must find a sustainable relationship to replace the incessant conflicts of Industrialism: our institution proposes to serve all parties and provide a pathway to this goal.

The power of hiding ourselves from one another is mercifully given, for men are wild beasts, and would devour one another but for this protection.

Today, our Face Book site posted the video of St. Augustine and St. John’s County’s 2010 celebration of Dr. King and to memorialize the Marchers of 1963 and 1964 who helped the nation see the need for the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

I encourage those of you on FB to search for the International Chamber of Justice Inc.  As I sit here preparing to walk down to the church I am thinking of the words of Rev. Hardy speaking on behalf of  St. Augustine and St. Johns County.

There were not as many attending this year and I’ve already noted the marchers were not singing this year, not even as they entered the old slave market.

I wonder if some believe Civil Rights are now protected and the struggle is over.  If the struggle is over, all is left is to remember and attend an annual event, eating breakfast with those who are currently using police power to violate civil rights not withstanding our idea that the struggle is over.

The struggle is not over.  Jim Crow abides at City Hall and the Courthouse and our new organization proposes not to oppose and overcome them but to seek dialog and discussion and finally resolve what I feel now are silly disagreements that at the time seemed to make perfect sense…for the times.

We must acknowledge what went on here and what is going on now, but not dwell on it or seek to embarrass anyone, but move on together not as Black people or White people, the Chamber of Justice has a vision of One People, the Global Human Family; all we see are people…please leave your adjectives at the door;-)

LET’s not Forget! Shame on you America: the country where we have homeless without shelter, children going to bed without eating, elderly going without needed meds, and mentally ill without treatment – yet we have a benefit for the people of Haiti on 12 TV stations. 99% of people won’t have the guts to copy and repost this.

Many of us are really in the information business, not in the retail business we think we are running.
