OF THE MODEL
I started developing
thought in its wake, in the Netherlands as a minor and young adult, 11 to 21 years old. This was before
graduated from the first university i attended, 25 years after the end of the Second World War.
thought i started developing in Canada as, what was then called, 'a landed immigrant', when i was 22 to 25 years old. I did not become fully aware of the significant role of
in inclusive thinking and acting (and in all traditional notions such as
in particular) until my academic philosophical studies about one decade later.
During a one-year journey around the world thr
North America, Oceania, Asia (for half a year) and Europe, i took up making philosophical and
notes again in Afghanistan on my way to, and also in, Iran. That is when and where i began to entertain the idea of writing a book to be referred to as "
". It would take a
position, that is, one based on the primacy of norms and values, instead of a
one, that is, one based on the primacy of gods and/or demons in the singular or plural.
The largest part of the first version of 'the Model of Neutral and Inclusive Thought' i wrote in Great Britain at the end of my world tour, 31 aSWW. Later i changed
Neutral and Inclusive Thought
to make clear that the Model was not only about thinking but equally about behaving or acting; and to emphasize the inseparability of neutrality and inclusivity in practice.
It appears that the Model of Neutral-Inclusivity is and will be the last denominational tome in human history of its size written by hand: three books about a new worldview in altogether 936 pages. Not long after finishing this work the computer came into use as word processor among the general public, which made all handwriting on such a formidable scale obsolete.
Before finalizing the (handwritten and typewritten) manuscripts of the Model of Neutral-Inclusivity i went back to university, studied ethics, logics and related historical and especially systematic subjects, and graduated in philosophy at the age of 34 years.
Using the context name ('pen name', if you prefer)
for the first time i self-published the (paper) Model in print in the Netherlands, 41 aSWW, that is, in the 41st (
) year after the end of the Second World War
The context for the use of the name
is a neutral-inclusivistic one in which i do not intend to refer to particular political or religious
, individuals, groups or countries at all or, at any rate, not by name, because by mentioning them in order to praise or condemn something a fallible person with a mortal body such as i myself may simply be wrong or lack the necessary means to be entirely impartial in
choice of examples.
Four years after the Model of Neutral-Inclusivity i published
Six Warlocks My Age
, Tales of Contemporary Supernaturalism, six short stories between large quotes, of which, in spite of these quotes, some stories should probably rather have been published (and may be republished) under my civil ('real') name for the reason given above.
In the last year of writing the Model of Neutral-Inclusivity (which also explains the use of
) i began my English studies, and three years after the publication of
Six Warlocks My Age
i graduated in English language and literature, 44 years old.
With the advent of global computer networks and the creation of
, 50 aSWW, it became possible to make the Model of Neutral-Inclusivity easily and freely available to all people with an internet connection whose personal rights are not denied them by some political, military or religious totalitarian regime. (In its early days TRINPsite was called "Insite".)
Today you can read online almost the whole (digital) Model of Neutral-Inclusivity, two thirds of
Six Warlocks My Age
and more recent poems and notes under the name of Vinsent Nandi. This includes the
Notes of the Metric Months
, which, by definition, are (still) being updated every month. You can also listen to a great many
on TRINPsite, among which a fair number of Model texts and poems.
On the surface,
As something having both a body and mental properties
(I.220.127.116.11) is quite a personal Model sound file with no fewer than twenty-six times
in nine sentences. Yet, much more personal is the first of the
to the Model in spite of its complete lack of any first-person pronoun. It is about the very conditions under which the author wrote the three books of the Model. Just listen to the text spoken by the author
self in the audio file below.
The Wheel of the Norm
(in this same folder) has more information about what considerations played a role in writing the Model of Neutral-Inclusivity. Strictly speaking, it is only about the relationship between a visual concrete symbol (the Wheel) and a literary verbal one (
), but since these symbols represent the normistic denominational doctrine in its totality, it also gives more insight into the creative thought process involved.
