GENRE STYLES

Genre Styles refer to Imaged nuanced Art Forms in fields of historical periods while lackingagreed upon criteria to assess or classify norms of systems. So, each human’s Style–as distinguishable as ones fingerprint or voice—moves one, if at all, by its Sublime, perspicuous, ornate, clear, intricate, simple, complex, fluid, cursive, crabbed, eccentric, bombastic, humble, free-flowing, open, abrupt, or languid manners. On that basis, a given genre topic has its own Style areas to spotlight, with ratings based upon ones chosen deviations from that genre’s norms. For example, after often going through 1000 books in searching a word’s meanings, I avoid all of them and fashion my own concepts of that word’s applications on different planes of existence—each synonym being a new word style. For a fine Style to properly convey ones true nature requires it must be clear and give views of the Fancy. Resultant Figures about these enable the immediate seeing and understanding of their readily evident correspondence with the content. Style increases the brightness and Force of its core content, as a magnifying glass does for a sunbeam to allow it to set dry leaves on fire. The more familiar or intimate one gets with a Style, the more clarifying details one sees. One benefit is the nature of ones feelings about it draws one into ones own interior world. One experiences a mutual penetration of all that comprises ones Character, whether of a Real Self or False Self. Also, one learns more about what has Correspondence as well as more about the “what it is,” “what it might do,” and ways of “how it appears.” This concerns the fact that people screen out what they have been socialized to do or trained themselves to not see. But these new insights enable one to become aware of what has been screened out. This is particularly true of those Styles at the top of the Social Ladder–those deemed to be highly cultured, deeply artistic, and uplifting of ones Spirit in a seemingly purifying Soul manner. These Styles are Eloquence expressions by deeds and by Emotive language which animate various principles of human conduct.

Fine Art showers ones visual field with rich detail that form designs of ones interior world. Exotic feeling are a strangeness of the unfamiliar viewed from another’s normal perspective. Significant Musical Styles have seemingly mystical powers, said by Ancient Africans, to heal by their great emotional range in bringing life to the Soul by grabbing it and bathing in its Sublime patterns. After borrowing this concept, the Chinese named their word for medicine after music. They believe elegant, virtuous music has a pure energy that harmonizes the body, mind, and soul. Stage performances may have styles stressing the ideals of loyalty, humility, compassion, tolerance, and other aspects of Humanity’s good and beautiful. Those messages concern the exuding of deep, profound, broad, all-inclusive,  strength, of exposures to Reality and Truth. In Rhetoric, Style is the manifestation of a conscious adjustment to the Reality Principle—the need to delay gratification in the service of self-preservation so as to maximize pleasure in the long run. Styles on other rungs of the Social Ladder are countless, as between peer groups. For example, people in one in-group understand each other's slang expressions or simply saying "that light" rather than the first green light"–but outsiders do not. For many, to act or play in a showy, flamboyant way—old terms being “Hot Dog” and “Showboat”—is still under the Umbrella term of Style. This group as well as Black gang-members are not to be judged good or bad according to their imitation of the styles and taste of Europeans because they are in an Unknown state regarding who they are. They engage in informal ordinary conversation or writing with a style plain, rhythmic, and relaxed—all being accepted by the general public’s imitations of them nation-wide. Others are skilled in language manipulation and/or mannerisms designed to blaze the group’s emotions and thereby gain status. At the extreme, some Styles disregard every commonly accepted view so as to have a clear and natural “Feel” for the topic. My recommendation is that all Black Americans steep their minds in Ancient African Tradition, learn their words and philosophy. Whatever is pure is simple.

It is not the Material Body—the Formal Body—the Dense or Gross Body which experiences these Styles. Instead, it is ones Subtle Body—the way one is as one feels oneself to be—like how one feels from a hard struggle that led to a big success. One goes into the experiences one is sensing (e.g. sound, touch)—giving insightful details about being “Alive”.
