The 33 Chiropractic Principles

63

1. The Major Premise – A Universal Intelligence is in all matter and continually gives to it all its properties and actions, thus maintaining it in existence.

2. The Chiropractic Meaning of Life – The expression of this intelligence through matter is the Chiropractic meaning of life.

3. The Union of Intelligence and Matter – Life is necessarily the union of intelligence and matter.

4. The Triune of Life – Life is a triunity having three necessary united factors, namely: Intelligence, Force and Matter.

5. The Perfection of the Triune – In order to have 100% Life, there must be 100% Intelligence, 100% Force, 100% Matter.

6. The Principle of Time – There is no process that does not require time.

7. The Amount of Intelligence in Matter – The amount of intelligence for any given amount of matter is 100%, and is always proportional to its requirements.

8. The Function of Intelligence – The function of intelligence is to create force.

9. The Amount of Force Created by Intelligence – The amount of force created by intelligence is always 100%.

10. The Function of Force – The function of force is to unite intelligence and matter.

11. The Character of Universal Forces – The forces of Universal Intelligence are manifested by physical laws; are unswerving and unadapted, and have no solicitude for the structures in which they work.

12. Interference with Transmission of Universal Forces – There can be interference with transmission of universal forces.

13. The Function of Matter – The function of matter is to express force.

14. Universal Life – Force is manifested by motion in matter; all matter has motion, therefore there is universal life in all matter.

15. No Motion without the Effort of Force – Matter can have no motion without the application of force by intelligence.

16. Intelligence in both Organic and Inorganic Matter – Universal Intelligence gives force to both organic and inorganic matter.

17. Cause and Effect – Every effect has a cause and every cause has effects.

18. Evidence of Life – The signs of life are evidence of the intelligence of life.

19. Organic Matter – The material of the body of a “living thing” is organized matter.

20. Innate Intelligence – A “living thing” has an inborn intelligence within its body, called Innate Intelligence.

21. The Mission of Innate Intelligence – The mission of Innate Intelligence is to maintain the material of the body of a “living thing” in active organization.

22. The Amount of Innate intelligence – There is 100% of Innate Intelligence in every “living thing,” the requisite amount, proportional to its organization.

23. The Function of Innate Intelligence – The function of Innate Intelligence is to adapt universal forces and matter for use in the body, so that all parts of the body will have co-ordinated action for mutual benefit.

24. The Limits of Adaptation – Innate Intelligence adapts forces and matter for the body as long as it can do so without breaking a universal law, or Innate Intelligence is limited by the limitations of matter.

25. The Character of Innate Forces – The forces of Innate Intelligence never injure or destroy the structures in which they work.

26. Comparison of Universal and Innate Forces – In order to carry on the universal cycle of life, Universal forces are destructive, and Innate forces constructive, as regards structural matter.

27. The Normality of Innate Intelligence – Innate Intelligence is always normal and its function is always normal.

28. The Conductors of Innate Forces – The forces of Innate Intelligence operate through or over the nerve system in animal bodies.

29. Interference with Transmission of Innate Forces – There can be interference with the transmission of Innate forces.

30. The Causes of Dis-ease – Interference with the transmission of Innate forces causes incoordination or dis-ease.

31. Subluxations – Interference with transmission in the body is always directly or indirectly due to subluxations in the spinal column.

32. The Principle of Coordination – Coordination is the principle of harmonious action of all the parts of an organism, in fulfilling their offices and purposes.

33. The Law of Demand and Supply – The Law of Demand and Supply is existent in the body in its ideal state; wherein the “clearing house,” is the brain, Innate the virtuous “banker,” brain cells “clerks,” and nerve cells “messengers.”

    Joseph,

    I must point out to you that in RWS textbook, principle #30 reads: –

    – “The Causes of Dis-ease – Interference with the transmission of Innate forces causes incoordination OF dis-ease.” –

    – It is extremely important to use OF instead of OR which determines the nature of the DIS-EASE and WHERE it occurs as compared to INCOORDINATION. Since we NOW know that INCOORDINATION OF ACTION and DIS-EASE are two separate concepts as we demonstrated through MANY previous blogs, and we agreed, it behooves us to correct this error immediately. –

  3. Steve 11/07/2014, 3:23 pm:

    Are not all incoordinations, dis-ease and is not all dis-ease, incoordination?

    • David Suskin 11/07/2014, 3:33 pm:

      Dis-ease is metaphysical
      Incoordination is physical

  4. David Suskin 11/08/2014, 11:48 pm:

    What comes first,
    The major premise or
    The state of being conscious of the major premise?
    Consciousness must precede the major premise and while
    It might not serve the chiropractic objective (I think it could if explored),
    Consciousness being at 1st cause might serve the human reason d’être objective, the divine objective, And that might bear on a more complete experience intellectually, emotional-experientially and understanding cognitively of the major premise which in the end would serve chiropractic, Adio viewpoint, and perhaps more importantly serve the human condition, self awareness, bringing mankind closer to living lives in awareness, in dignity, in love and closer to TRUTH
    Ps. I expect no comments or total disagreement. At least as it applies to chiropractic.
    As long as we are committed to teaching our pm’s truth, we might as well teach the complete truth BUT
    The truth is not popular.

    • Joe Strauss 11/09/2014, 6:36 pm:

      Anything that would precede the Major Premise would be a theological construct and outside the realm of chiropractic philosophy. The Major Premise is about existence of matter. No one can think before they exist. Consciousness in chiropractic is synonymous with awareness. Didn’t the Cartesian imperative say just the opposite of your post? “I think therefore I am (exist)” To think you must have a mind. Mind is in part matter, a brain must precede (educated) awareness/consciousness.

  5. David Suskin 11/09/2014, 11:55 pm:

    Joe,
    Yes, I agree, when you say:
    Anything that would precede the Major Premise would be a theological construct and outside the realm of chiropractic philosophy.
    In this forum, i will abstain from a philosophical discussion concerning the subject of consciousness and it’s many ramifications.
    Question: without matter, one would not know about universal intelligence. Does that mean that matter precedes universal intelligence?

    • Joe Strauss 11/10/2014, 5:08 pm:

      David you wrote: “Question: without matter, one would not know about universal intelligence. Does that mean that matter precedes universal intelligence?”
      A person born in the weightlessness of space would not know of the law of gravity, having no empirical knowledge, and in fact having empirical knowledge of its non-existence. Does that mean that the law of gravity does not exist? Universal intelligence is the law of organization (existence). Organization cannot exist before it is created. It (ui) may not be expressed before matter exists but universal intelligence as a law of organization had to be created before the matter that expresses it. The governing body had to create the speed limit laws before the 25 mph signs that express that law could be made. Who created the speed limit laws in my town? I don’t know, I’ve only lived here for less than 2 years and they were here when I arrived so I conclude that someone in authority made them and someone erected them. Who created the law of organization (ui)? It was here when I arrived 69 years ago so I conclude that Someone created it and Someone created the matter that expresses it. Who that Someone is, I have my beliefs, but again it is beyond the Major Premise and outside the philosophy of chiropractic.

  6. David Suskin 11/10/2014, 7:14 pm:

    Joe,
    It’s interesting. Basically you’re logically stating that Laws have to exist before What the law(s) determine(s).
    In the case of let’s say, for lack of a better term, Natural laws, and the recipient of those laws couldn’t they have been brought into existence simultaneously? But ok let’s say universal intelligence precedes matter and innate intelligence precedes innate matter. Is innate intelligence conscious or aware of the ways to adapt universal forces to innate forces allowing organic matter to maintain its state of active organization?
    Yes? Isn’t intelligence which designs and operates the universe and life the same as being aware or conscious of what truth is and how to manifest thru law, the operations of physical and living matter?
    Cannot it be said that as in matter expressing the force created by universal intelligence, that mind or educated brain is matter, a vessel, to express the forces generated by the realm of consciousness or awareness.
    You stated that mind or living matter precedes consciousness.
    While on the surface that might be what seems to be, just like it seems like matter contains the laws (mechanistic)(pantheism), and we philosophically do not agree with that premise. Cannot it be said the same reality and relationship exists for consciousness and brain(mind)?
    But again this is another subject, another forum, but does lend itself to the whole discussion of educated intelligence which is a chiropractic philosophy subject and might warrant some further discussion or analysis.

    • Joe Strauss 11/11/2014, 1:04 am:

      David, you wrote: “It’s interesting. Basically you’re logically stating that Laws have to exist before What the law(s) determine(s)”.
      I guess I am…
      “But officer , why are you giving me a ticket ? I was only going 35 and that’s the speed limit. “…” Yes but tomorrow the speed limit is going to be reduced to 25 so I’m giving you a ticket today!”
      “In the case of let’s say, for lack of a better term, Natural laws, and the recipient of those laws couldn’t they have been brought into existence simultaneously?”
      They could have but contrary to what some people say, I was not around then so I do not know the order of creation.
      “…innate intelligence precedes innate matter. Is innate intelligence conscious or aware of the ways to adapt universal forces to innate forces allowing organic matter to maintain its state of active organization?
      When did the law of gravity learn to attract masses or did it always” know”?
      The “intelligence which designs and operates the universe” is not universe intelligence. That is only a mechanism, a tool , a law used to “continually give to it all its properties and actions thus maintaining it in existence” P.#1
      “… as being aware or conscious of what truth is and how to manifest thru law, the operations of physical and living matter?” How did this evolve into a discussion of truth? What do ii and ui have to do with expression of truth?
      I have no idea what point you are trying to make in the next sentence!
      Force and intelligence are not in matter. They are separate and distinct from matter but united with it, P.#4
      Educated intelligence would be a great topic to discuss but my educated brain has reached its limit for today

  7. David Suskin 11/11/2014, 1:39 am:

    Joe,
    I thank you for this discussion. I speak better than I explain in the written word.
    Bottom line.
    In the same way the major premise is induction plus faith,
    The subject of consciousness and awareness in my experience, in my observation, is wrapped in the same miracle as the freedom exhibited in free will (another philosophical debate) in human beings. And that matter, whether living or dead is the source or precedes our ability to interact and be aware of our interaction, aware of our selves in our interactions, and to love and to feel alive and to share in our brotherhood or for you and I to be willing and freely say goodnight to each other, is improbable, and not logical. Consciousness and awareness and heart and soul (other ramifications thru the door of educated) is nothing but Miraculous!
    How can the miracle of man be anything but a reality that emanates from what precedes matter?

  8. David Suskin 11/11/2014, 3:16 am:

    Joe,
    Being that you have presented the 33 principles, my first post(see above) was my attempt to present the major premise as an implicit expression of the 32 remaining principles. While this might be true, being the nature of deductive logic, I was looking to experientially express a fuller breath of the major premise, perhaps unsuccessfully. Why?
    Because the chiropractic objective is only achievable if a Chiropractor
    can successfully administer spinal adjustments and to many many pm’s, and have the objective communicated successfully.
    In other words being Professionally SUCCESSFUL
    Claude has expressed that comes with CHOICE in being successful and telling the story over and over again in many different creative ways.
    You have spoken about how to be a successful chiropractor in many of your books. How to deal with slipping and checking. Etc.
    I have come to the hard truth that success in action can only happen when all of the cards a person holds, their knowledge and talents, their shortcomings, their strength of conviction, their purpose and mission, perhaps some luck, the ability to be disciplined, focused and the willingness to work, and most importantly their ability to cope with ups and downs, to see a big picture, to SEE IT, are just right. That might entail strong spiritual connections, a strong support team, personal maturity, ego, hunger and need. It’s something that pushes some people (80/20 rule) over their own thresholds of boundary limitation.
    Being successful at a non result oriented service, OSC, has its set of challenges. And then again, as I have spoken about the pitfalls within educated intelligences of people, well it’s easy to see why mixing is the dominant terrain in this profession and thus why I continuously bring up the issue of consciousness and awareness. Because success in many ways is all about Perspective.
    What makes a Joe Strauss a successful chiropractor?
    The 33 principles? I think not. Joe Strauss and all of his talents and perhaps a few short comings 😉 is a successful chiropractor because your perspective works in your environment for all the multitude of reasons, educated, innate and limitation of matter within you.
    Or Joe, I ask you, how does one not manage to be their own worst enemy?
    Owning yourself, owning your perspective, doing what needs to be done I spite of resistance.
    Maybe your skill as an author and philosopher plus your spiritual foundation has given you the orientation or the strength and focus.
    Which Adio Principle Is It Was It That Took or Takes Guys Like You and many others, the 20%, to the realm of Professional Success?
    I know my short comings and strengths better now then ever, but paralysis of analysis, that just doesn’t change.
    I think one has to grab onto a lucky star and not let go. I have to this day not found that star or ignore the blessings I have to the point of being ignorant, childish or educatedly screwed up like the other 80%.
    God only knows. That’s the root of consciousness I’m talking about.
    And that’s for another forum

  9. David Suskin 11/11/2014, 12:19 pm:

    Append: May I preface or append Professional Success as a
    NTOSC Success.
    and certainly I do not relish filling these wonderful discussions within this forum with personal minutiae.
    Perhaps between the lines there bears some truth or conflict that clarifies.

    • David Suskin 11/15/2014, 1:50 am:

      I was just reading about dark matter, dark energy. Non matter, unmatter, whatever!!!!! I gotta tell you, the world of physics and astronomy, god, Its huge! Brilliant! Theoretical physics? So beyond my language at this moment. So seemingly interesting and complex.

      Could it be the single term called Universal Intelligence that has formulas and theories and atypical observations of matter layered on top of it. Educated inductive deductions to explain the unexplainable atypical activities of forces in the universe!
      Is the major premise really true in its simplicity?
      Man wants to understand the unanswered, the enigma.
      And here I am with the ability to Choose and be aware that I can learn and understand and communicate.
      Alive by some force that might one day be understood but today is simply abstracted as signs and a philosophy that educes.
      So what do I tell my pm’s.
      Chiropractic is specifically about YOU?

  10. David Suskin 11/16/2014, 12:00 pm:

    I’ve been down this corridor a multitude of times. Forgive my redundancy as I look perhaps to go deeper into at least my understanding of the 33 principles.
    Question 1: Is all matter of our bodies, our tissues, our cells, our chemistries, Innate matter?
    Q2: are the chemistries of our living body, possessive or in their working state as possessing innate forces? As having been once perhaps universal forces but been converted to innate forces?
    Q3: If that is so then why couldn’t the chemistries of our body eg. Hormones, be a or the conveyor of innate force from innate intelligence to fullfull p21, 23?
    Q4: How do we deduce that it’s the nervous system which is the conveyor of the innate force to link together ii and innate matter?
    Yes, I know. The nervous system is a control system. We know this inductively. But the identity of subluxation as the main interfering entity of innate forces?
    How is that deduced?
    It’s all a good theory but how philosophically is that arrived at, not by Authorithy, but by logic? Yes in know. II works within life. It is life.
    And I know that universal forces must be adapted. I’d presume except for p24, all innate forces do their job except if they are interfered with which is a principle. But how do we identify subluxation as THE place. As the nerve being The containing entity of transmission. Isn’t the circulatory system a conveyor of information possessing hormones and innate forced chemistries?

  12. Claude Lessard 11/16/2014, 12:54 pm:

    David,

    Read principle # 23 and you will read: The function of innate intelligence is to ADAPT universal forces AND MATTER for use in the body, so that all parts of the body will have CO-ORDINATED ACTION for mutual benefit. –

    – Now, since universal forces AND MATTER are BOTH adapted by innate intelligence for use in the body, so that all parts of the body will have CO-ORDINATION OF ACTION answer your questions. 😉

  13. David Suskin 11/16/2014, 1:52 pm:

    Claude Socratico Lessard,
    I asked 4 questions.
    Well your statement refers to IN the body then I’ll say yes. All matter and forces in the body are of innate quality except those where there is interference to that adaptation. Yes / No
    What About Q4? I never seem to get an answer except perhaps someone being hung interferes with the nervous system/spinal column which is t even true in many cases. Most of the time it’s pinching of the carotids or asphyixiation. Yes yes I know that causes death to the nervous system but that’s a far cry from a pinched nerve causing interference to innate force transmission which you can’t even see but only theorize who which is ok by me. But I can see a nerve and I ca see blood and I can see arteries. I can know the physical control mechanisms but the Life Force? Nervous System. That’s where it is? And why we do as chiropractors what we do?
    All because of a logical deduction. P28 ?????? I can’t make the deduction. Please fellow unique terahumanoid. Help my werey brain and soul. Give me some logic. Not Socratic. I’m open to your thoughts. I respect them. Just a poosh ova da widdle hill of DS illogic or confusion. Thanks professor. I await 😉

    • Claude Lessard 11/16/2014, 7:10 pm:

      David,

      No. Even with interference with TRANSMISSION of innate forces, as long as the cell is alive, it is innate e/matter under the control of the innate intelligence of the cell. That renders that particular cell, cellfish, since it lacks COORDINATION OF ACTION. You see that principle #28, 29, 30 and 31 deal with the principle of COORDINATION OF ACTION (pri.32). The circulatory systems and serous system deal with nutrients and waste. –

      – Today, is November 16, 2014, and that is WHERE we are in our evolutionary process which takes time (pri.6). We (that means you, me and everybody else) MUST hold, for the time being, paradoxes, contradictions and conflicts… within ourselves. We have more than enough to practice the chiropractic objective. –

      – Yet, how can you expect your practice members to hold YOUR paradoxes… if you do not hold those that you need to hold? 😉

  14. David Suskin 11/16/2014, 9:24 pm:

    Hmmmmmmm
    Interesting.
    Yet the hormones. I understand the ii vs cellfish concept. But hormones regulate and control. Thyroid and all the ductless glands that control. But yes I see Claude but again. How do we deduce
    That the nervous system is the transmitter of innate forces as the primary ii transmitter. That’s an inductive observation is it? How is that arrived at in p28?
    Yet I do understand that you are applying the principles to perhaps broader ADIO living concepts that seem to be directives on how to live how to cope how to choose. It’s complex.
    But in a way Claude, you refer to the authority of the 33 principles almost as a deified instruction to live almost like you’ve committed yourself to it almost beyond reason? Maybe I’m wrong. I don’t mean to insinuate mindless adhearance to principles. I’m just a neophyte. I think you’re an existentialist who has chosen the chiropractic way. I can’t make that commitment until I see, until I own, until I perhaps experience something I haven’t experienced yet. And I might never. But wish I could.
    Of late I’m getting the concept of everyone being unique being served by their own innate to ripen as you say. But again. Something is missing. Maybe it’s my inability to hold on to the paradoxes and the unknown and still be able to profess. Be able to go out and holler chiropractic chiropractic. It’s all a out you and me and all of us.
    I need to relax.

    • Claude 11/16/2014, 11:30 pm:

      David,

      You do need to relax. Otherwise, you are wasting precious time that is taken away from the LIFE of your practice members. Analysis IS paralysis! Remember, your life is NOT about you… it’s about SERVING the needs of those given to you in your care.

    This way I won’t embarrass myself trying to comment on things that make up the heart and soul of why this blog even exists including the kitchen sink! And seemingly always arrive at the same place. So I’m told. That being paradoxes and contradictions. What good are those things on a philosophy blog.
    Oy. 😉

    • Joe Strauss 11/18/2014, 12:11 am:

  17. David Suskin 11/18/2014, 1:31 am:

    And I do reference them all the time.
    And i thank you for this blog. Right now I’m reading chiropractic philosophical constructs once again. A new model for the mental impulse. Perhaps I’ll be able to extract or educe some truth dealing with p28.
    Question Joe:
    Does chiropractic, normalcy, the individuality of every triune, every life, establish the uniqueness of everyone, as such a fact, that its a major attraction, a major experience, a chiropractic experience. Where people learn to accept theirselves with greater integrity, with greater self esteem, with greater honor. The experience of being adjusted and the onus of having a greater expression of innate being the focus of the relationship between chiropractor and pm enforces humility for all. It’s why people see their chiropractor for 91 years! In ‘getting’ the philosophy and the adjustment, you start to get life, to get yourself.
    Is that the process of ripening, of educing that Claude speaks of?

  18. David Suskin 12/28/2014, 4:37 pm:

    I’m returning to this post to once again clarify
    P2. The Chiropractic Meaning of Life – The expression of this intelligence through matter is the Chiropractic meaning of life.
    As p2 deduces from p1, with NO references to life (innate intelligence), why as Koch suggests, is this NOT a latter principle stating
    The expression of INNATE Intelligence is the meaning of life?
    Unless as I have deduced that essentially, p2 is a template of the triune which permeates non living and living matter. That Life is implicit in p1. That inherent in universal intelligence, is innate intelligence.
    Yet, when I review p1, the major premise, that is the law of existence (organization),
    1. As typically discussed,it references matter at the elemental level.
    2. Yet Existence may be referring to all existence. Existence of non living (inorganic) matter AND living (organic) matter. That existence pertains to universal matter (eg. Rocks, planets, elements, etc.) and to innate matter (trees, plants, animals, man, water and atmosphere -ecological organization)???????
    I see both sides.
    P1, while it suggests existence, that it implicitly suggests LIFE as we understand it is a challenging yet understood abstraction.
    Comments? Scholars?

    • Claude Lessard 12/28/2014, 7:45 pm:

      David,

      Existence, which is universal life, includes EVERYTHING inorganic and organic (living things and non-living things). Life, which is aliveness, includes ONLY organic (living things).

      • David Suskin 12/28/2014, 9:57 pm:

        Claude,
        Interesting and a bit of a twist, at least to me, is that p1 speaks of universal intelligence and existence, yet p2 extrapolates Life?? Existence as implicit which leads to ii, etc.
        I agree and observe that there is organization and existence in everything, but premising LIFE from p1 as far as maintaining it, thru ii,
        Yet having no reference to it IN p1 could lend one to say matter maintained in existence could deduce to
        Inorganic matter – elements and physical law
        Organic matter – Life and active organization
        AND
        Human matter bearing soul? Consciousness? What would preclude that as long as we’re bring life matter from p1?

          Art. 310 is crystal clear. Principle #2 deals with universal life, which is existence, and that includes inorganic and organic e/matter. In other words, the expression of this universal intelligence through electrons, protons and neutrons is the chiropractic meaning of universal life, which is existence. If you do not stop walking, you will move away from the center of the forest. YOU ARE THERE! There’s only ONE thing for you to do now…. 😉

          • David Suskin 12/28/2014, 11:17 pm:

            Claude,
            You’re very observant my friend and helpful.
            Thanks. 🙂

      • Joe Strauss 12/30/2014, 3:47 pm:

        Claude, my understanding is that the “life” described in principle number two is referring back to, by the word “this”, universal intelligence and hence it’s “actions” is referring to “universal life”

        • Claude Lessard 12/30/2014, 6:22 pm:

          Joseph,

          That’s exactly what I am saying! Universal life which is existence. 😉

  19. David Suskin 12/28/2014, 6:53 pm:

    Yes , I’ve observed from RWS:
    Art. 310. THE CHIROPRACTIC MEANING OP LIFE. Principle No. 2. The expression of intelligence through matter is the Chiropractic meaning of life. The meaning of the term life has many interpretations. It is usually accepted to mean existence, or duration, or a vague idea of both. To Chiropractic, it is definitely the expression of intelligence; the manifestation of intelligence. Then in this broad sense the meaning is not limited to mere organic matter, but includes all matter. Therefore, we will be obliged to make a deductive classification, going from the general to the specific, (Art. 12) and deal with the specific; viz., universal life and organic life.
    —————————————–
    Interesting, the movement in deductive logic, the movement from general to specific.
    The observation of intelligence in matter. Matter in existence. At any level. Elemental, molecular, non living, living, SOME Higher level unknown???
    Chiropractic deals with the major premise and how it relates to non living and living. It has been said (joe), that living matter warrants another level, if you will, of intelligence, one that maintains active organization and thus the existence of Organic matter, Life! Thus p2 inherently, is called the chiropractic meaning of Life. The Triune at both levels.
    Something like that.
    Anything to add fellow explorers and teachers?

    • David Suskin 12/29/2014, 2:56 pm:

      Joe, Claude, Steve, All,
      Question:
      My ole Favorite p28 – If the nerve is removed from a target organ (cell), eg. kidney (transplant), any other medical or traumatic situation where the target nerve is detached (efferent and afferent),
      ii uses the nerve to adapt universal forces to innate forces and thus to coordinate the actions of the target so that all parts of the body will have co-ordinated action for mutual benefit.
      Since THERE ALWAYS IS AN INNATE AWARENESS OF EVERY INNATE NEED, ii knows WHAT and HOW and THAT with regards to our example (kidney, etc.), but CAN’T DIRECTLY because of LOM with the nerve being removed. It will do it’s best thru other organs (glands, etc.) which have their own nerve supply, and perhaps the local environment of the tissue (blood vessels, etc.).
      MY POINT?
      Without condemnation, that I might understand more fully, II knows what to do, ALWAYS, but needs a physical Transmission TO Transmit the Mental Impulse for Action or Property of the matter it seeks to have a Triune With.
      Am I Correct?

  20. David Suskin 01/21/2015, 8:52 pm:

    Major Premise: How do we deduce that Force is CREATED by UI, to join UI with UMatter? Implying a Triune? So how do we deduce that UI is not a part of UMatter, intrinsic to it? How do we extract a Triune of separate entities, 2 of them metaphysical, 1 of them physical?

  21. David Suskin 01/21/2015, 11:23 pm:

    Yes I’m back to the inquiry into the basis of The Triune existing.
    In a previous post, named ‘Thank you sir Issac’, Claude does state:
    The uniting of META PHYSICAL intelligence and PHYSICAL e/matter is done through METAPHYSICAL instructive information. In other words, METAPHYSICAl intelligence + METAPHYSICAL instructive information UNITE the METAPHYSICAL intelligence with PHYSICAL e/matter.
    *******************************************
    But isn’t this conjecture? The observation in the MP is that of organization and existence of matter, inferring the presence of intelligence. OK, but how do we extract the Triunes template on existing matter vs intelligence being intrinsic to matter itself.
    Interesting though, I formulate the Triune as it applies to Life. Mechanism as a theory of Life would seem to negate the existence of the signs of The signs of life, etc.
    I’m saying that Life (innate matter) deduces triune, not universal matter.
    It’s interesting that
    P2. The Chiropractic Meaning of Life – The expression of this intelligence through matter is the Chiropractic meaning of life.
    Which leads to p3 and p4 the triune.
    In a sense the deduction of the triune from p1 would necessitate the observation of LIFE, innate matter, BEFORE p2 p3 p4! And p2 speaks of Life but not in the sense of innate Life.
    Interesting.
    So I’m back to P1 again with my question(s)

    • Claude Lessard 01/22/2015, 1:13 pm:

      David,

      Live those questions or create and develop a new philosophy. You will find out that WORDS can ONLY develop concepts and concepts are not the “thing”. No one ever got drunk on the word wine… you’ve got to drink it in order to get the “buzz” don’t you not? Words and concepts are the car that gets you to your destination… once you’re there, you’ve got to get out of the car to do what you have to do. The 33 principles of chiropractic’s basic science are pointers guiding us in practicing the chiropractic objective which is to: LACVS for a full expression of the innate FORCES of the innate intelligence of the body. PERIOD. –

      – Those 33 principles also TRANSMIT instructive information that use rational logic and deductive reasoning constructing a solid foundational platform on which chiropractic stands. It gives rise to the chiropractic objective. In other words, the 33 principles of chiropractic’s basic science are FORCES uniting chiropractic philosophy and the practice of the chiropractic objective. –

      – You asked me before WHAT it is that gives me such conviction and passion to go out there for 40 years and tell the story over and over and over and over and over again in as many creative ways as doable. I mentioned it before and it is me WHO chooses to mention it again: “It is NOT about the WHAT! It is about the WHO!!!! And I know that YOU know that! WHY? TRANE is your mentor and he said: “Each man has to find it for himself, I think”. It is YOUR PERSONAL HOMEWORK David. No one can do it for you. Carry on ADIO. 😉

  22. David Suskin 01/22/2015, 2:50 pm:

    Claude,
    It would seem that you discovered your WHO, quite some time ago. And you felt comfortable in your own skin, with it.
    I thought I did, years ago, and I am aware of my, shall I say uniqueness and sensitivities.? but Life’s curves started throwing me curve balls, and paradox’s that I could not manage without throwing me off, into doubt, into insecure.
    Interesting you say ‘Those 33 principles also TRANSMIT instructive information’ as though it was by EXPERIENCE, something one CANNOT Touch by words. That WHO you are cannot be known but it can be LIVED and SHARED. Guess that’s what art, music, poetry, human interaction is all about.
    Understanding historically Chiropractic, It would seem that This Chiropractic DID come out of a theological continuum blended with a logical, deductive, experiential premise or viewpoint, the ADIO viewpoint. (era of g_d, trinity, spirit-matter, etc.). We’ve refined it to be the 33 but it comes from something, out of something, and IS going somewhere.
    I think for me, my spiritual development and searching is in that queue to be dealt with. I always have been in question of it, but NOW, it’s becoming more and more critical.
    My WHO needs the strength, the continuum of G_d to help me overcome the pulling, the misunderstanding of the paradoxes that have plagued me, or at least that’s how I’m putting it.
    Joes book, his ‘chiro-born again’ book, is pointing me into more of orientation, fitting in chiropractic into that aspect. I have my own experience, understanding and integrating it into WHO I am, as is the case with everything I read, do, think, listen too, talk about, etc.
    Yes, you say, and Trane said “Each man has to find it for himself”. And I continue. Even with the anxiety, the fear that sometimes overwhelms me.
    I JUST CAN’T SEEM TO MAKE THAT HAPPEN, THAT WALK AND TALK, that some, like yourself and others seem to have been able to do for so so long. with ease.
    Yes, it’s MY Life, My Walk, My destiny. I have My own path. I have my own blessings. I have my own failures, my own forgotten dreams.
    Time P6, is marching on. Sometimes in this ‘Pointing to the Truth’ My head feels like scrambled eggs. Like I can’t think anymore. Nothing makes sense. So I take a short break, clean the mirror of once again, and begin again.
    Thank You Claude for your attention and most of all, your heart. 😉
    Carrying On, from Intelligence to Matter, a one way street, ADIO, with G_D by my side

  23. David Suskin 07/04/2015, 1:24 pm:

    RWS Art. 340, The function of innate intelligence.
    P23. 3rd paragraph
    Just to clarify…
    When RWS says “it’s creations are forces systematized adaptively, and materials built into INTELLIGENTLY PLANNED forms”:
    He is implying that Innate intelligence is the executive, NOT the architect. Actually he IS making reference to Intelligent Design in his wording “intelligently planned”. Interesting!
    Yes I do realize that in the context or perhaps in the vernacular that RWS uses in his Chiropractic Textbook he could be literally be suggesting that Innate Intelligence IS the planner of forms, (His usage of theological and creationist references, etc. that we have sifted out in OSC).
    This is where I’m coming from and yes once again I probably will be criticized for being overly OI’ish, overly missing the ‘middle of the forest (rg)’.
    I am truly trying to own and appreciate the enormity and truth within what we call The Authority, which is a learning up and down, getting it losing it process.
    Chirpractic deals with the maintaining of life and the maintaining of matter in existence.
    The fact that there is a mechanism that is ALSO intelligently organized and intelligently integrated into function is NOT p23 or p21.
    Yes, these references to looking at nature let’s say an seeing intelligent operations and cycles again really is NOT chiropractic philosophy.
    That’s more of intelligent design.
    Chirpractic deals with the the relationship of ui to matter to ii to life, the mission and function of ii, the observation that life exists as a matter different then an inert matter, thus the signs of life.
    Subluxation is an impediment to this “investing with a new character” metaphysique.
    In other words,
    Innate Intelligence is more like the boss, the CEO.
    The intelligent design it works with (the functioning matter), is more the architect and builder.
    I’d appreciate some commentary.
    Happy 4th. Go USA

  24. David Suskin 03/14/2017, 4:48 pm:

    My interest in Kochs 33Ps rearrangements and revisions besides fulfilling his assessment of incompletions, grammatical vagueness and imbalance in order, etc. focus More on the concept of organization being the thread that unites the principles vs Stephensons “Life” model.
    I know you Claude posed some issue with his syllogism stating it lost deductive ground to progress logically.
    I am curious for a more stringent analysis of his 33P analysis.
    Here it is, with numbers indicating Stephensons sequences:
    THE UNIVERSAL PRINCIPLES – Koch
    1. The Major Premise. There is a universal intelligence in all matter, continuously giving to it all its properties and actions, thus maintaining it in existence, and giving this intelligence its expression. (1)
    2. Cause and Effect. Every effect has a causes and every cause has effects. (17)
    3. The Principle of Time. All processes require time. (6)
    4. No Organization Without the Effort of Force. Matter can have no organization without the application of force by intelligence. (15)
    5. Universal Expression. Force is manifested as organization in matter; all matter has organization, therefore there is universal intelligence expressed in all matter. (14)
    6. The Triune of Organization. Any organized structure is a triunity having three necessary factors, namely intelligence, matter and the force which unites them. (4)
    7. The Amount of Intelligence in Matter. The amount of intelligence for any given amount of matter is 100%, and is always proportional to its requirements. (7)
    8. The Function of Intelligence. The function of intelligence is to create force. (8)
    9. The Amount of Force Created by Intelligence. The amount of force created by intelligence is always 100%. (9)
    10. The Function of Force. The function of force is to unite intelligence and matter. (10)
    11. The Function of Matter. The function of matter is to express force. (13)
    12. The Character of Universal Forces. The forces of universal intelligence are manifested as physical laws, are unswerving and unadapted, and have no solicitude for the structures in which
    they work. (11)
    13. Intelligence in Both Organic and Inorganic Matter. Universal intelligence intelligence gives force to both organic and inorganic matter. (16)
    14. Interference with Transmission of Universal Forces.
    There can be interference with the transmission of universal forces. (12)

    THE BIOLOGICAL PRINCIPLES
    15. Organic Matter. The material of the body of a living thing is organized matter. (19)
    16. Innate Intelligence. A living thing has the intelligence of the universe inborn within it, referred to as its innate intelligence. (20)
    17. The Chiropractic Meaning of Life. The expression of this innate intelligence through matter is the Chiropractic meaning of “life.” (2)
    18. The Triune of Life. Life is necessarily the union of this intelligence and the matter of a living thing, brought about by the creation of specific internal (innate) forces. (3)
    19. Evidence of Life. The signs of life (assimilation, elimination, growth, reproduction, adaptability) are evidence of the innate intelligence of life. (18)
    20. The Mission of Innate Intelligence. The mission of the body’s innate intelligence is to maintain the material of the body of a living thing in active organization. (21)
    21. The Perfection of the Triune. In order to have 100% life, there must be 100% intelligence, 100% force, and 100% matter. (5)
    22. The Amount of Innate Intelligence. There is 100% of innate intelligence in every living thing, the requisite amount, proportional to its organization. (22)
    23. The Function of Innate Intelligence. The function of the body’s innate intelligence is to adapt universal forces and matter for use in the body, so that all parts of the body will have coordinated action for mutual benefit. (23)
    24. The Principle of Coordination. Coordination is the principle of harmonious interaction among all the parts of an organism, in fulfilling their functions and purposes. (32)
    25. The Limits of Adaptation. The body’s innate intelligence adapts forces and matter for the body’s use as long as it can do so without breaking a universal law; in other words, its expression is limited by the limitations of matter and time. (24)
    26. The Normality of Innate Intelligence. The body’s innate intelligence is always normal and its function is always normal. (27)
    27. The Character of Innate Forces. The forces the body’s innate intelligence creates are never intended to injure or destroy the living thing in which they work. (25)
    28. Comparison of Universal and Innate Forces.
    In order to carry on the universal cycle of life, universal forces are destructive, unless they can be adapted, whereas innate forces are always constructive, as regards a specific living thing. (26)
    29. Interference with Transmission of Innate Forces.
    There can be interference with the transmission of innate forces. (29)
    30. The Causes of Dis-ease. Interference with the transmission of innate forces causes incoordination, or “dis-ease.” (30)

    THE CHIROPRACTIC PRINCIPLES
    31. The Conductors of Innate Forces. Some of the forces the body’s innate intelligence creates operate through or over the nerve system in animal bodies. (28)
    32. The Law of Demand and Supply. The Law of Demand and Supply exists in the body in its ideal state; wherein the nerves transmit messages from the body, concerning its needs, to the brain, which acts as the central processing unit for the body’s innate intelligence, and from the brain to the body to meet those needs. (33)
    33. Subluxations. Interference with transmission in the body is often directly or indirectly due to subluxations in the spinal column. (31)
    🙂

    • David Suskin 03/16/2017, 1:29 am:

      In review, the revisions and rearrangements pose a clarity and continuity not found in RWS’s. However an over mechanization to metaphysical concepts does pervade and I do take issue with some of the principles as redefined. Perhaps a further emalgamation of old and new serves some value. I think the discussion is warranted. And if no takers, I continue to edify intently on my own.

  25. David Suskin 05/09/2017, 5:02 pm:

    With reference to
    P14. “Universal Life – Force is manifested by motion in matter; all matter has motion, therefore there is universal life in all matter.”
    Since matter expresses Both actions And properties,
    Isn’t force manifested by attributes (properties) in matter in addition to motion.
    How does motion offer anything additional to the 33, that it would require the need to identify it with its own designated principle?
    Matter that has Motion without properties ceases to exist also

    • Claude Lessard 05/10/2017, 12:43 am:

      David,

      You texted that: “Since matter expresses both actions and properties”… It does NOT! The function of e/matter is to EXPRESS force (pri.13) and then force is MANIFESTED by motion in e/matter (pri.14).

      • David Suskin 05/10/2017, 12:59 am:

        Force is also manifested by properties in e/matter (P1). Which p(2-33) is that?

  26. David Suskin 05/10/2017, 5:46 am:

    P1 states that Universal Intelligence is in all matter and continually gives to it all its properties. How does that happen if not through the union that force provides between i and m?
    Yes. I understand that coordinated action and harmonious action and adaptive action, etc. lays at the heart of what Function and Mission DOES, but without the properties of non-living and living matter being acknowledged, all that exists is perfectly coordinated NOTHING.
    Matter expresses (action) Force through its “force maintained in existence” Properties (mass, dimensions, polarity, composition, etc.)
    One comes first, the property of a particle or the movement of matter that maintains the property of matter, we happen to call a particle.
    Objects are defined by their properties and functions. All I’m saying is that perhaps we need to consider the “Property” a little bit more, in the execution of our P33 deduction we call chiropractic philosophy.

    • Claude Lessard 05/10/2017, 3:36 pm:

      David, remember that force is metaphycal created by intelligence which is metaphysical (pri8). Force is information and is expressed by e/matter (pri13). The manifestation of that information in e/matter is motion (pri14). Where is it that you are stumped?

  27. David Suskin 05/10/2017, 3:56 pm:

    Claude,
    I’m suggesting inclusion of other manifestations of information.
    You said:”The manifestation of that information in e/matter is motion (pri14).” I say True, AND The manifestation of that information in e/matter are also ATTRIBUTES (properties). as per P1.
    P14 serves to indicate what is the manifestation of force. It manifests as motion AND attributes (properties)(P1).
    I’m being inclusive of more available information that P1 realizes

    • Claude Lessard 05/10/2017, 8:08 pm:

      The 33 principles are chiropractic’s basic science. As such they are the guiding authority needed to practice the chiropractic objective. You were talking about e/matter’s expression and manifestation. Principle 13 and 14 are all inclusive and the don’t “conceal”:;

  28. David Suskin 05/10/2017, 8:43 pm:

    P13,14,15 do not reference specifically, “Properties”.
    Actions (functions, etc.) are.
    From Object Oriented Analysis an “object” refers to a particular combination of variables, functions, and data structures.
    Actions are functions
    Variables are data (values)
    Data Structures are properties.
    Where are the properties besides in P1?
    I thought this website was called
    Chiropractic OUTSIDE The Box?

    • Claude Lessard 05/10/2017, 9:30 pm:

      Properties are given by universal intelligence. Properties are part and parcel of e/matter. You don’t get that?

  29. David Suskin 05/10/2017, 9:51 pm:

    Of course I get that. On the same note Actions (motion) are part of e/matter too.
    A Universal Intelligence is in all matter and continually GUVES TO IT ALL its PROPERTIES and ACTIONS.
    Without actions, No motion.
    Without properties, No structure.
    15. No Motion without the Effort of Force – Matter can have no motion without the application of force by intelligence.
    15b. No structure without the Effort of Force – Matter can have no structure without the Effort of Force.
    The discussion about Force is Incomplete

    • Claude Lessard 05/10/2017, 10:25 pm:

      You complicate things. Keep it simple.

  30. David Suskin 05/11/2017, 10:41 am:

    Does the mental impulse serve the integrity of the design (properties) of living matter? Is that simple enough?
    And yes, I do very much complicate things, to a fault!
    I choose my WHO. My WHO chooses me. I have limitations.

    • Claude Lessard 05/11/2017, 5:00 pm:

      The mental impulse is an innate force (information) and is ALWAYS constructive and normal towards STRUCTURAL e/matter (pri26,27)
      and is expressed by e/matter (pri13) to be manifested by motion in e/matter (pri14). The motion is totally dependent on whether VS is present or not present. The properties do NOT change… ONLY their motion… which could lead to DIS-EASE if VS is present (pri30,31).

  31. David Suskin 05/11/2017, 6:46 pm:

    hmmmm
    Interesting
    P14,15,17,18 as per Chiropractic Philosophy (JStrauss), speak of motion as a manifestation of force, and interestingly so. As a conveyor of action (p17), and with regards to being in relationship to the living events we call the signs of life. I never saw this before. Motion. Even the adjustment is a conveyor of motion (EIF) and your explanation is well and good.
    But P10 states that the function of force is to unite intelligence and matter.
    and P1 explicitly states intelligence giving to matter All it’s properties and actions.
    I maintain Force IS a conveyor of PROPERTIES and actions as it unites intelligence with matter.
    In the progression of the 33Ps, it leads from a generalized a priori clause, the major premise, and moves step by step from non-living, atom/molecular organized matter to living actively organized matter.
    It is interesting that Force within these I’ll say transitional principles P14-18 is characterized as universal force, leading to innate force and that motion is in a particular location (syllogistically, if I’m using this term correctly), that seems to be bridging, I’ll almost say Fudging, conveniently being used as both a description of forces manifestation, both atomically and organically.
    That chiropractic philosophy has chose to identity Motion as a manifestation of force in matter, but NOT order itself. structure or perhaps more accurately, as said, The Properites (eg. size, shape, distances, strength, weight, polarity as though these characteristics, properties, not Action or Motion are the same in both non-living and living matter. How do we know this? How do we deduct this? Anyway, that is besides the point. The initial point IS that an early principle P10 that states the function of force, and P1 that speaks of intelligence imparting properties and actions to matter, and beyond P10, to never speak of these properties again, as a feature of what force transmits, if you will, is I don’t know? Strange? Perhaps it’s eloquent or intuitively correct.
    I understand certainly what you are saying Claude, and Joe’s Chiropractic Philosophy Blue book certainly brought to light for me having re-read it again, the nature of motion and how it is intertwined into the variation between, what alters the constitution of, what differentiates non-living matter from living matter, yes. Interesting. And conflicts do clarify. But that no reference is made in any way to value how force effects the union of intelligence with matter through the establishing of property(ies), and that perhaps in living matter, so too, as we see in the signs of life, the properties of matter are affected that enable the signs of life. You’ve said it yourself. The special character imbued to physical matter constituting the mental impulse, effecting the protons, electrons velocities, etc. Adaptation of universal forces and matter takes place thru an alteration of motion but perhaps so to there is an invoking of structural change too, that we call properties of matter. DD even spoke of it. He called it Tone. Tone is a property. Yes it is probably an alteration of some motion in matter, but so too, it may be an alteration of some structural property. But yes, I can keep it simple to explain, but maybe not to understand. Enuf 🙂

  32. David Suskin 05/12/2017, 6:10 am:

    I believe part of this “over analyzing” I do bears the conflict that clarifies.
    It’s a testament to the epigram.
    It’s comments (yours) like these that I continue to require running through my heart and mind that propel me forward in Chiropractic, through numerous educated roadblocks.
    I’ll reiterate your statement with a somewhat imperfect addition:
    The mental impulse is an innate force (information) and is ALWAYS constructive and normal towards STRUCTURAL e/matter (pri26,27)
    and is expressed by e/matter (pri13) to be manifested by “both” motion in e/matter (pri14)
    “And Contructiveness”(P-David). The motion “and constructive structure” is totally dependent on whether VS is present or not present . The properties “comprise constructive, coordinated and integrated living structures… without which could” lead to DIS-EASE if VS is present.
    (pri30,31).
    Is LACVS for a fuller expression of innate forces of innate intelligence PERIOD really that simple to accomplish, successfully on a daily basis in the face of the accumulations of LOM thru life’s experiences?
    It all depends on the WHO that runs the show.
    Curtain up, curtain down. ADIO

      IDavid,

      t’s so simple that you spend PRECIOUS time and time and time again… making it so difficult for yourself… that you won’t get off the fence.
      JUMP DAMMIT!!! JUMP!!! 😉

  33. David Suskin 05/12/2017, 12:56 pm:

    Well you’re right Claude and the time Is precious. So in essence what you’re saying is that The Chiropractic Philosophy is GOOD ENOUGH.
    Hey, we could just stop at P1 and leave it there, but we don’t.
    A science (Our 33P’s), does not have to be set in stone.
    Anyway I did JUMP. Many years ago. And left for all the same but various reasons many many Chiro’s left. We have all discussed them (mixer, chiropractoid, scientism, md’itis, “walk the walk” – “talk the talk”, credibility, business acument, personal stuff, etc.
    Now yes, I am a different man having more focus, more philosophy understanding, more wisdom. JUMPING again? I will JUMP DAMMIT :).
    And I will procrastinate, but I WILL JUMP. And I will still inquire and question and look to add, create, express. That is WHO I am.
    I WILL JUMP 🙂

    • Claude Lessard 05/13/2017, 3:59 pm:

    • Joe Strauss 05/15/2017, 5:25 pm:

      David you write “So in essence what you’re saying is that The Chiropractic Philosophy is GOOD ENOUGH.” (emphasis yours) Actually our philosophy as a whole is explained in the sum total/essence of the 33 Principles found in the chiropractic philosophy. Principles #1-27 are the Basic Science of Chiropractic as it relates human existence in generalandhow it relates to human existence/experience, which Claude refers to as the Basic Science of Chiropractic. They (the 27) are applicable to ALL sciences, (if they are truly scientific), Life sciences (14-27) relate to the truly “biological” sciences, and one, the Applied Science of Chiropractic, is in Principles 28-33 as, they relate specifically to the chiropractic objective .
      That is why we describe Chiropractic as a Philosophy (1-33) Art and Science (14-33. The philosophy is merely the foundation surrounding the unique parts/basis of the science. The Art is merely the mechanical(ism) by which the science is applied.

        Sorry about the remainder of the comment after the title of Claude’s book. I forgot to turn off the “italics”.
