Introduction to the account of a search for
how people can be so different and how you can become
what only you can be.

 

First let me introduce myself.

My name is Rini Sips (1935).
At times I have been student, librarian, portrait-painter, in spite of myself involved in the development of children, later choosing for involvement with the self-development of adults, and always ready to explore. [ note ]

Rini Sips
I see a certain direction in my life, which is to get an overall picture of things and try to understand their structure. This has led me to pose a number of questions and to go on searching for answers. It began in ernest when the question came up of why adaptability and following the 'rules' were no guarantee for happiness.
The search for answers to my question turned out to be a zigzaggy process, that finally proved to have more of a direction than I originally would have imagined. That it took me quite a long time has much to do with my way of working and handling problems. At first I believed that some wise people had the answer to my question. That in a book somewhere ... , but that turned out to be a mistake. I was also restricted by my own prejudiced ideas. Some preset ideas of mine were:
  • that it could only be a matter of knowledge and intelligence,
  • that good and truth are absolute values,
  • that you have to work, and
  • need another person's approval.

At long last I was able to develop a concept of man which offered an important starting point to get a concise, practical and manageable picture of how people are, and how we cannot but be different.

I may have found a structure and be able to discuss ideas with friends. For myself however I want to conclude my quest-like search by trying to consolidate my findings and set myself some discipline by having to put it in written form. In addition, since my experience and the knowledge which I have acquired could possibly be profitable to other people who seek self development or want more insight in people's incentives and peculiarities, I want to pass on my brainchild as a zine by means of this medium. Your feedback will be much appreciated!

A zine is a creative expression of one person or of a group of people. Zines appear just once or over a period of time, as one sample or in larger numbers. They are informal in so far as they may contain anything that can be reproduced on paper. The phenomenon occurred in the eighties in the U.S., at universities and elsewhere. The paper carrier could in the mean time well have been bartered for the Internet. But that need not be the case.

Now as I re-read the introduction after almost 17 years it strikes me that it looks as if I thought I was ready before I had even started: I appear to presume that I needed to look for a new concept of mankind!!
To me it is clear that I am not an astrologist, someone who interprets a horoscope, but a person who seekes for the how and why of factual data. From experience I have learned that I am a reviewer but not just that; I am an observer, always asking and searching and weighing and absorbing and comparing without an immediate personal reaction or opinion. Someone who takes her time before drawing conclusions.

I have, unfortunately, still not been able to find out whether the interpretation of the cosmos of Egyptians and Babylonians (before 2000 BC) corresponded with Ptolomeus' Tetrabiblos vision transmitted to Gerolamo Cordano (1501-1576) and others whose starting point was the Ascendant -the personal space and time.
The information in the reversed astrological form, now not on the basis of the individal but from the self-developing universe, offers more clarity mainly through the opportunity to compare. The new method is applied as from zine #32.

If the information is correct that a group of scientists and philosophers, including Einstein, think that the present world-view is incorrect and for that reason needs an alternative,
- if the universe, the 'unity', 'oneness', steers all individual parts in connection and thus actually controls what we think and do,
- then it might also be desirable that 'society' gets reconsidered and that 'thinking' could be approached from another standpoint based on equivalence.

A synopsis of some essential steps and consequences:

In Sept. 1999, in #01 my points of departure and presuppositions, I clearly start from the individual, with myself as the subject.

In Aug. 2001, in #11 the first state of affairs, I have the intention of occupying myself with mutually related concepts.

In April 2004, in #21 the second state of affairs, I am working hard on the singularity-, the dynamic-, the dialectic- and the relativity principle, and some other sometimes less important subjects.

----- in April 2007, with #29 I start studying the relations between process and environment / 'context'. I start thinking with difficulty from 'the cosmos, a unity of contexts'.

In April 2009, in #31 the third state of affairs, a project, a change in my thinking can be perceived: The de-velopment of the given basic structure..., the subject of dialectics is touched upon....

----- in June 2010, with #33, I close 'the internal relations', but leave a wrong number behind.... I think that I must take a closer look at the notions structure and system which then and now are often mixed up --- and decide to skip #34 and #35 for the time being in order to concentrate in #36 on the problem of the structure.

----- in the period from Oct. 2010 till Feb. 2016, with #36, the structure based on quantum relations becomes gradually clear to me and from there I can change the astrologic chart in such a manner that a clearly comparable image develops based on the mutuality and unity of unique parts.

----- in April 2016, while correcting the animations 2c and 3a in #33, I cautiously apply the structural representation developed in #36. By using the universe as a permanent base in the charts and approaching processes from the view of unity of its integral individual and functional parts, the quantum-cohesion of the interactive and changeable world-view as well as the view of things and humans as individual and unique becomes clear.
In animation 3a I have included in the presentations and explanations the three types of dynamics and the four types of dialectics, the central two of the six developmental relations.

----- in May 2016, turning back to #32 in which the same process appears, I also used the reversed astrological representation or the new cosmological (quantum) world-view.

----- in #39 further structural and technical data will be added.

----- in de last 3 parts of the themes line the subjects of development, society and other consequences of the new human, thing and world-view of unity and uniqueness will be under discussion.

You can choose your own route through the zines: either follow the numbers starting with #1, or turn into one of the zigzag roads below.
