Bororo - non-dualism. Mind and body are not entirely separated, they overlap. The Bororo do not see themselves as parrots in the sense of beaks and feathers, but rather in the sense of being good-spirited, brightly colored, near water. Men depend on women, as good depends on bad…men stand to spirit in the same way that parrots do. Descartes - DUALISM-mind and body are mutually exclusive of each other. He turns inward to find truth (can’t be sure of bodily existence). He wants certainty. Believes in God, doubts perfection, body is imperfection…knows that for there to be perfection, there has to be imperfection. God is perfect. Turns away from senses, uncertainty, externality, body and material to reason, certainty, internal, perfection, mindfulness, and spirituality. Cant doubt that he’s thinking (or doubting) Psychotherapy - college student asks questions to therapist about marriage, family, etc. Therapist answers “no” to every question. Dualistic example-student turns inward and answers questions by himself and realizes through his own rationality, he had answers all along-truth comes from inside (Descartes). Iching is diff b/c truth comes from outside (clear your mind of all pre-set notions), student was thinking about past relations and happenings to come to conclusions. But similar to Iching b/c answers are pre- determined and they have to be interpreted, no real processing-come to same conclusion. Carl Jung - causation vs. synchronicity. Synchronicity- not cause and effect, all together. Psychoanalytical/consciousness. Co-Incidents Iching - orient and self-reflection. “Book of Change,” ask it questions and it gives insight that enables you to make decisions. Uses hexagrams. Iching is duality- elements are all in relation with each other(yin/yang, male/female, etc.) Truth comes from outside. When the lines come together, they indicate how things work. Isn’t chance, help figure out why things happen when they do, helps you get in touch with your own unconscious. Focused on what is in between (broken lines). To interpret the lines, you have to be in a certain set of mind-get rid of everything, mind gets in the way. Descartes would look at Iching as mechanics. Iching isn’t interested in causation, interested in how situations occurred in co- incidents. See things as looking or bad, suggest what you should/shouldn’t do; intuition. All externalities of universe explain why things happen; you are part of the universe. Not arbitrary. Would say Descartes was disillusioned-they wanted immediate connection with the world, not logical. Iching is closer to Bororo than to student, b/c Iching is taking for granted that somehow they are connected to everything else. Gahuku Gama
