an interpretative example of understanding environment (part 4: unwanted violence)

in applying or understanding the nature of environment as if possessed of conscious intent (not though in paradoxical actuality) we will inevitably hit metaphysical stumbling blocks.  but through this process there is the idea that clarity is formed because if we have difficulty in applying what living is beyond us we will examine what does apply in regards of environment (including insight beyond behavioral contexts) and its potential to have influence on violence and volatile situations.  a useful way to think of environment as if possessing conscious intent is through terms such as peaceful or hostile – terms we are not unfamiliar with but in this context gives a grounding of what this is likely to be and what it is not.

the environment in its own right (without terms of living consciousness) should not inherently be disregarded as a lower order when it comes to how situations of violence and hostility evolve or devolve.  in fact hierarchies of safety when for example applied to the places we might visit or frequent can recognise well the primary importance of external environments, conditions and setting.

in taoist terms the internal self and external world could in fact on a deeper level be argued as the same or at least more closely interconnected than we would have been led to believe.  the association with taoism is integral to this in so much as acknowledging we are a part of the world as much as the world is a part of us and so such thoughts can help to recognise this but also to imagine what it is to move beyond the boundaries of self and behavior.
