    But it is a creative experiment that I have been wanting to jot down my thoughts about:


    Let's take 2 ideas, or words, and there meanings and definitions:


    Doxstatic- Pertaining to belief. Alternatively, also pertaining to states sufficiently like beliefs (thoughts, judgments, opinions, desires, wishes, fears).

    and let,s say....

    Qualia - In philosophy and certain models of psychology, qualia (/ˈkwɑːliə/ or /ˈkweɪliə/; singular form: quale) are defined as individual instances of subjective, conscious experience.

    I cannot speak of these myself. But I can ponder the relationship between these two and sit and think. It requires more imagination than I.Q. But sometimes I think of things like this and I wonder if this could be turned into a creative exercise. Does anyone see where i'm kinda going with this, or does this just make no sense at all?


    Any two ideas work. It's like playing 2 chords over and over again and listening to the subtle nuances.

    Hi Machinist,

    Here’s a comparable pairing of terms that fits the concept I think you are describing.

    “Fluid Intelligence” compared and contrasted with “Crystallized Intelligence”. These are two similar but distinguishable concepts that may or may not work together in concert with each other.

    You are trying to show examples of subtle nuances of meaning between two things. Thats the case here. They say that Crystallized Intelligence can continue to increase whatever the age of the person, but Fluid Intelligence can begin to wane even in adolescence (which explains some of the almost brain-dead choices that young adults can make).

    Crystallized Intelligence is more or less the accumulation of concrete facts and figures, etc., but Fluid Intelligence is the application of that knowledge to make novel choices and solve fresh puzzling problems as they arise.

    I’ve been attempting to use both of these concepts in tandem with each other for the last 8 years as I have used every bit of my past education in the scriptures to try solving the eschatology puzzles of Revelation, Daniel, etc.. To date, no one at any of my former churches where I was a member had the answers to what I was asking. I finally went to the Source Himself and asked HIM. God NEVER disappoints the soul that is seeking Him with all their heart. He encompasses every conceivable type of intelligence there has ever been, “Fluid”, “Crystallized”, or otherwise.

      My little sister once did something like years ago when we were kids and came up with a new term combining ignore and annoy, basically meaning to annoy by ignoring. That's how the term ignoy came about.

        Putting that end-time puzzle together is going to be a creative exercise!

        I'm just wondering if there are exercises to expand that creativity and accelerate understanding and wisdom. I mean yes, seek ye first the Kingdom. But can this be the seeking? The striving for greater fluidity and creative understanding? FYI, I do not like reading books, and i'm not a studious person. I do not have an disciplined background in education. I may have ADHD and a few more. I definitely have "Coffee Addiction Disorder."
