  • I found myself thinking this morning about the contending voices of behavioral disposition. To begin with, I think it's unhealthy to not engage in some sort of discourse with oneself. Discourse‚Ķ discussion. Di-. Bi-. Two. Like a flipped coin, the two sides engage in a perpetual fugue. One answered by the other.

    That just can't be all there is. Of course, the conscience. How can I be sure though that the input from the Gray is always substantiation for the Light? What exactly is the implicit application of the tenet of necessary evil? How many cases of gratuitous evil are let to pass into the stadium of behavior?

    In Statistics, one way to analyze time series data function graphs is to interpret information in the form of a moving average. A moving bell curve built to represent a changing definition of error per the time shift identity h.

    Every man, woman, and child operates on or is undergoing changes on their position in the curve of behavioral disposition. One man's residual is another's modus operandi. And so it snakes down to the most angelc and up to the most foul. Moving averages covering a narrow range of behavioral dispositions are part of greater definitions. A most lethally evil person may display cases of good and is so represented skewed left, a thin tail of probability skulking towards the succor of morality.

    Despite the inevitable chaos of mapping behavior in this way, a bell will emerge. It will show something, whether or not we take anything from it is a different question. The lower bound identified by the most honorable and good of acts, and the upper bound identified by tyranny and repugnance, there is some generality.

    "We're about 60% good."
    "Or is it 40% bad?"

    One could never reach everyone to make such a call, but I think we'd be surprised and shocked for good as well as bad to see such a representation made.

    Make your moments of good shine.
