10 - A Range of Vision-logic Interpretations
Though vision-logic of the centaur can indeed be inspired by spiritual intuition giving it considerable synthetic ability, in formal terms its interpretations are made in a linear asymmetrical manner (that are applicable to a series of multiple - relatively independent - contexts).
The clear problem with such vision-logic from an integral perspective is - what I refer to as - the linear fallacy. In other words because the direction of variables may seem unambiguous within each partial context (considered separately) one may then generalise that the same lack of ambiguity applies to overall development.
For example - with respect to Ken Wilberís quadrant approach - because (from one perspective) each lower stage is transcended and included in a higher stage (when considered in a partial relatively independent context) then the unwarranted generalisation is made that in actual development (where quadrants are likewise relatively interdependent) - that all lower stages are transcended and included in a higher stage.
So the linear fallacy always relates to a failure to properly distinguish the interdependence of variables (where polar opposites dynamically interact in complementary manner) from independent analysis (where opposite poles are separated in an asymmetric fashion).
It is important to point out that the nature of vision-logic interpretation continually changes when viewed from the perspective of higher stages.
Let me briefly clarify this changing nature.
Vision-logic (from vision-logic stage). Here relationships - though potentially considerably infused with spiritual understanding - are formally interpreted in a linear asymmetrical manner with respect to each of the four quadrants.
Vision-logic (from H1 - subtle realm). Now all relationships are given twin interpretations with respect to horizontal polarities. Put another way each Right-Hand asymmetrical interpretation is seen to have an equally valid (mirror) Left-Hand interpretation (and likewise each Left-Hand a corresponding Right-Hand interpretation).
Thus now the identification of any event as Right-Hand or Left-Hand is understood to be merely arbitrary.
Vision-logic (from H2 - causal realm). Understanding is now considerably more refined so that all Upper and Lower quadrants are likewise understood to have (mirror) asymmetrical interpretations.
Even more subtly, these asymmetrical interpretations are now seen to have both "real" (conscious) and "imaginary" (i.e. unconscious) interpretations.
Vision-logic (from H3 - nondual reality). Understanding now reaches an extreme in terms of refined specialisation. As well as horizontal and vertical mirror interpretations, we now have now corresponding mirror asymmetrical interpretations in relation to diagonal polarities (which can be given a coherent complex mathematical formulation in dynamic holistic terms).
Also with this degree of refinement one can likewise appreciate the very subtle connections as between all three sets of polarities (and their mirror equivalents).
Vision-logic (from R1). This entails the balanced interpretation of the interaction as between diagonal asymmetrical poles with their complementary (nondual) expression.
Vision-logic (from R2). This entails the balanced interpretation of the interaction as between both diagonal and vertical asymmetrical poles and their complementary nondual expression.
Vision-logic (from R3). This entails the balanced interpretation of the interaction as between both diagonal, vertical and horizontal asymmetrical poles and their complementary nondual expression.
So in truth the nature of vision-logic understanding (in terms of multifaceted asymmetrical type appreciation) is considerably refined and modified through the more advanced stages of understanding. This enables it to operate in an environment that provides an adequate integral context while allowing much greater scope for continual refinement in understanding.
