The Problem of Post-Modern Analysis and 5D Thinking

Post-modernism is characterized by multiple features. One of the fundamental features of post-modernism is that it has erected a discourse wherein meaning; the underlying medium to reach value and purpose, has been vigorously reduced to imaginary function. In the simplest description, meaning has no relevant place in the post-modern actional world. The post-modern critique deprecates and delinks the actional world from any sort of metaphysical or spiritual function. Instead, it advocates an attitude that the actional world operates through pragmatic or empirical frameworks which have less to do with the notion of meaning. Such frameworks are exclusively concerned with digits, numbers, visual manifestations, and other kinds of material representations. They have specified and fixed coordinating structures. And, the structures are totally mechanical in their inner and outer build-up.


In a nutshell, the whole design; the inner dynamics of a worldview, is observed through an observable method. For example, in post-modern analysis, human life is nothing more than a self-regulated chemical arrangement. Consequently, death is nothing but the loss of that chemical arrangement. By this reductionist definition, life; the most complex but highly perfect existence, is a biochemical process that starts at point A (birth) and ends at point B (death). The journey from point A to point B is just the operative procedure allowing chemical arrangements to get certain needs filled for their structuring and restructuring. It is like we think because the chemical arrangement of our brain creates a need to think. It is similar to the need of consuming food. We eat food because the chemical arrangements in our cells need a constant energy supply. The notion of meaning comes only at the point when “chemical arrangements” interact with “social arrangements”. So, the whole equation is about the matter. It has matter on the reactant side and matter on the product side.


The process of subscribing to distinctive meaning has to do with the distinctive “social arrangements” one lives in. The problem with “social arrangements” is that they are not genetically determined. They emerge, develop and change. If they fail to change, they might even die. That means, the same person may subscribe different meanings to a particular kind of action, for example, love, when he/she is put into different “social arrangements”. There is a kind of social algorithm and the human mind either acts or reacts to that algorithm. The point is that mind while being in the process of subscribing to meaning, generates meaning through imagining. In post-modern analysis, imagination is not an independent variable. Rather, imagination is deeply influenced by social algorithms.


In the post-modern context, we imagine in two binary ways. We imagine through either having or through aspiring. In both ways of imagining, our mind is differently connected to different social algorithms. For example, religious people subscribe to meaning while being deeply immersed in fantasies of aspiring to unseen realities.

They aspire for salvation through following their respective believe-in “perfect models”. Such aspiration is problematic with the post-modern mind since it exclusively believes in the aspiration of matter for the matter. There is nothing beyond and in-between. The scale is matter and what is being measured by that scale is also matter. Now, if we, for example, measure love by this scale then love necessarily has to be a material subject exclusively expressed through material representation. The radical and aggressive sexuality displayed through pornography is one representation of material love.


Nevertheless, post-modern analysis is vague. It doesn’t solve the problem. It is more a “problem confusing” than a “problem simplifying” discourse. It offers problematic questions with problematic answers. Its way of doubting meaning is more terrible than the skepticism of early ages. Its claim of liberation is a fetish. Its truth is more deceptive. Its means of production, from knowledge to capital, are sophisticated but artificial. Most of its “truth claims”; yes, post-modernism has a long list of “truth claims”, are based on simplistic generalizations. It doesn't answer, the way it claims to answer in a so-called “scientific method”, why do humans exercise conscience and consciousness. It doesn’t answer why humans have a tendency to aspire to eternality. Similarly, its way of defining meaning is problematic. It mystifies meaning by disconnecting it from the action. By doing so, it dismantles the whole normative fabric and leaves man with no boundary as such. It encourages individual interest over collective interest. It promotes pleasure maximization and utility principle in relations.


Nevertheless, debunking post-modernism is a herculean task. Bringing back the scale of meaning into the scale of digits and numbers demands a systematic approach. An approach has a well-articulated theoretical orientation and a step-by-step practical method. An approach based on the integration of qualitative and quantitative instruments of analysis. An approach that recognizes, for example, the act of love not in terms of its visual formulation but rather in terms of its value. An approach that seeks an answer to man’s longing for eternality. An approach that is capable of providing perspectives beyond “chemical arrangements” and “social arrangements” in the way that things attain the sequential state of equilibrium. An approach that connects: body with a soul, action with purpose, and movement with direction.


5D-Thinking is one such approach. The 5D-Thinking approach is the first of its kind. It does NOT follow an eclectic approach that simply adds religious and ethical messages to scientific knowledge. Rather, it follows an integrative approach to derive meaning and character lessons from the scientific study of the universe. Thus, the 5D-Thinking approach enriches one’s scientific understanding of the universe by enabling one to see five dimensions of the experienced reality. The five dimensions of thinking applied at 5D-Thinking are the: analytical thinking dimension; analogical thinking dimension; critical thinking dimension; meditative thinking dimension; and, moral thinking dimension. To learn more about the 5D-Thinking approach, it is worth exploring its educational programs, certificate courses, and newsletters.
