What we see here, and comparing this view to how SOMites
analyze and MoQites interpret reality,
is that each CRite is like many SOMites. And, indeed, that is
what CRites do: retain SOMitic
analytic and dichotomous CTMs,
but apply them polylogically (SOMites say, "schizophrenically,")
to reality. What we have in any land of cultural relativism is
but many SOMitic truths, none of them
absolute. By comparison SOMites say their one (OGC,
OGT) 'scientific' (errr, ummm, fundamentalist)
view is 'absolute.'
Why is that important to SOMites? They believe
that (some) humans must be able to know absolute truth.
Why? So that they can control nature and via absolute judgment
and know-ledge logically assess others'
behaviors (moral, ethical, aesthetic, political, cultural, religious,
etc.) as absolutely true or false,
right or wrong, good or evil, black or white, empty or full, absurd
or not, nonsense or not, ludicrous or not, etc.
Outcome? A philosophical monism. One absolute truth system fits
Cultural relativism attempted to escape that ugly contrived
classical utopia. It partially succeeded.
But cultural relativism itself is still ugly and contrived.
Why? It retained most of SOM's classical foundations.
In our philosophical opinion, many SOM's is much worse
than just one SOM. But we, personally, find SOM despicable.
How do we get out of this mess?
Tentatively, via MoQ. Quantum Think-king Modes (QTMs).
CR isn't all bad. Towards better, CRites
see reality's (realities') heterogeneities. Towards worse,
classical inanimacy and immutability plus classical Aristotelian
logic and a Newtonian classical ontology. Of course
Parmenides (515b.c.) and Aristotle (384-322b.c.) built that damned
wall. Many other unfortunates,
for over two millennia, have adhered its schisms, ironies, and
There are a few finer points we might offer regarding
our graphic above. First, a caveat. It is 2D and thus limited.
We show one CRite with multiple views (e.g., five different
colored circles) of a portion of reality.
(What classicists (SOMites) find most problematic with this perspective,
is a philosophical question,
"Which circle is the real circle?" Quantumists
(MoQites) answer "Mu," and "Yes." What this
most vividly is a philosophical malfunction in minds of classicists
who adhere CTMs.)
For CRites our brick wall probably should be a brick
But if we did that, unless you are a MoQite, you would be unable
to see any CRites inside that sphere.
And worse, how would we select said sphere's 'context' and 'locality?'
(See our Bell Theorem Study.)
We could just as easily, and acceptably/analogously,
have drawn multiple portions of reality.
Actually, we ask you to imagine that.
You may repeat our graphic to show multiple CRites.
What this graphic helps us to see is that, as a human
developmental philosophical enterprise, cultural relativism (CR)
is an evolutionary step up from Subject-Object Metaphysics (SOM),
but it is not as evolutionarily advanced
as more recent emergences of a more quantum Metaphysics of Quality
