The Agnostic Jungle

By Zulumathabo Zulu © 2017

The jungle, is resourceful
The jungle, is merciful
Diverse life, is supported
To reward, the agonist!
To punish, the egotist!
The jungle, like agnostic
Encrypted, like diagnostic

The jungle, oozes success
To equalise, the access
The cosmic, is cardinal!
To traverse, like antennal!
Guided by unwritten rules
To decode, needed tools
To access, cosmic insight

Contextual Commentary

The Problem of Epistemic Exclusivity

It is extremely important that in the agnostic jungle and for survival reasons, the prudent organism does not rely exclusively on the literal domain as the only source of survival knowledge. If the naive organism relied on this kind of epistemic exclusivity, it would incur a survival reducing experience, or worse, it would subject itself to a serious survival disadvantage.

Multi-Paradigm Knowledge Is Existential

As a matter of a principle that is existential to the survival of the organism, the erudite organism must also derive survival knowledge from other knowledges that are produced by the symbolic and perceptual domains in order to better understand and adapt to the perturbations of the environment that is continously posing an impressive threat to its survival experience. The erudite organism must continously be making selfless, clannish and tactical maneuvers to improve its survivability.

Must Be Correctly Guided by the Moral Code

Using the synergistic synthesis of literal, symbolic and perceptual domains, the prudent and highly drilled organism (supported by the ethical clan) is in a better position to be correctly guided by the moral code that enhances its survival experience (and that of the members of the clan) in the turbulant environment of the terrestrial space. It is this kind of strategic knowledge that gives epistemic and holistic access to the ways of knowing about the environment in order to increase the survival advantage failing which the organism is impeded and seriously disadvantaged.
