Tonal Mapping of the Bible

Clearing Words

You will encounter 3 types of new words in the KJV Bible.
1. "Easy": Words which you've possibly never seen, but you can understand them correctly by context and happily forget.
2. "Hard": Words which you likely don't know, and you may have been tempted to just make a guess to see if it pans out:
 make an effort though to stop and look it up, before you grow more comfortable with your working assumption of it.
3. "False": Words that you "know," but which aren't used in the definitions you expect. These are ones to be watchful of.
But as for words pointing to tough concepts or mysteries, it's best not to try solving them until at least finishing the book.

The 1st occurrence of a given word sets the precedent for its meaning throughout the text, and should be most studied.
Subsequent usages of the word are not likely to radically change its meaning (though, it's of course possible).

When understanding of one word changes, your understanding of whole sections begins to transform too, as you meditate on it.

Some Philosophy

We get into trouble (confusion) by not knowing original Core Meanings (Part IV) of words, and instead assuming to know.
It's not about etymology, but about the basic logic behind the historical meanings, which inform the modern meanings.
If we try simplifying our vocabulary, we also miss out on nuance or emphasis which writers or translators were conveying.
Only through reading can a proper understanding of words in their context develop and become sorted out.
Someone who is stuck may have an idea of what some certain words mean, and is stubbornly seeking proof of it.
In the same way, a person may struggle to identify the significant details of a life situation he's in, because he doesn't have the full context.
The Bible is about Universal context (perspective).

We're able to attend to both large matters and small, and we can work on small things while maintaining perspective, but sometimes, we sink down into "small thinking."
What if there were a scale for mapping thoughts by contents or patterns (or "magnitudes"), to remind us of what all there really is for us to work with, in the big picture?
This is the sort of thing which a healthy person will subconsciously give rise to begin to naturally internalize,
but for me in my life, I found it necessary to go through the exercise of intentionally crafting a clear map.

There is a tonal-emotional map or path which is Basic, and the Ancients knew about it. It's found latent in the story of Revelation, and in John, and in the whole Bible.
All emotional states, and attitudes, fall somewhere on the scale. (If we can identify where we are, we can get oriented to clear up anything we're currently stuck on.)
The end of the scale is Clarity (so, it's a path of "Clearing"). At higher clarity, one is able to see, hear, or otherwise perceive, rarer information in the structure of space,
beyond the grosser streams of information pertaining to one’s own mind or body or mind-body identity. And, it's my belief, this is the basic thing the Prophets did. Clearing 2004.PDF (Self Clearing, Ken Ogger 2004) (Remote Viewing, David Morehouse 2008)
 One is able to view remote places & times and describe the surprising images one sees there.
 Remote viewing is fundamental to nature, because we live in a uniform and singular physical reality.
What did the prophets see as they were shown the last days, where images are given life on strange screens?
How might they attempt to describe the structures they saw? or make sense of their names?

Tone Map

Seeing chapter-for-chapter parallels (especially Ch.16) between Revelation, John, and the Lotus Sutra, is how I firmed up my notions of and began developing this Tone Map.

On the Y-axis, we make analogy of emotional tone to physical scale (from broad & equanimous, to small & trapped), with normal human scale at the halfway, between upper & lower.
The X-axis shows aspect of change in tone (leftward is "subject to getting mixed up or tied up", and rightward is actualized control over destiny: "freedom from enturbulating forces").
There are 5 major divisions like "quadrants," corresponding to the Big Five personality traits (N,C,A,O,E), and these also set up a dimensional analysis (1-D "who" through 5-D "how").
Within each division, 5 steps reflect combinations of the 3 defiling emotions (or poisons, or unclean spirits): Anger which pushes, lust which pulls, and indifference which looses both.

I represent that the 10 Commandments are discrete choices which are presented to us at each step of the scale, for changing our aspect or trajectory to either the right or the left.

The FALLING line ("Incident") follows the 12-Linked Chain of Causation, which can be broken and "Rolled back" at any time, by switching from Evaluator role into the Observer role.
The chain is: (0,1) Ignorance leads to volition [karmic action], to (2) consciousness [discerning], to (3) name & form [objects of discernment], to (4) developing of sense faculties,
which leads to (5) contact, to (6) sensation, to (7) desires, to (8) attachment, to (9) existence of forms [and pursuit thereof], to (10,11) cyclical birth & aging & death [of mind].

Also on this map, not in bold print, are references to: Logical Fallacies and Cognitive distortions; types of anger, and deficient communication habits;
the Tone Scale from Scientology (values -40 through +8 and beyond), and topics in Ogger's Free-Zone Scientology handbook (chapters 1,2 through 52,53).
