Morning's at Seven by Paul Osborn 1)/ decoded/

“Make it simple but not less simple” (Einstein)


Morning's at Seven

by Paul Osborn

With the social Message DECODED

Since it is valuable for our reflections and allegorically relevant to our social context and our perceptions, and to make the social message more transparent; I have tried here again to decode the famous play of Paul Osborn (based on a short synopsis of the story/1), along the patterns of the "Harmony Model" . I think it is more than relevant for our Ethiopian context and the political stalemate confronting us at these crucial times of confused perceptions.Valuable to maintain the piece of optimism, which may be blocked somewhere in the mind or in the vibrating substance of our hearts.

Synopsis: Morning's At Seven 1/( decoded)

-in the patterns of the “Harmony Model”.


1. Cora: (Mrs. Laws) + Thor: (Ethics-Tradition);

2. Ida: (Mrs. Community) + Carl: (Mr. State);

3. Arry: (Miss Nature-Mankind); (lives with Cora and Thor);

4. Esther (Faith-Vision) + David, (Religion-Dogma);

5. Homer (“Mr. Generation-new”) + Myrtle („Miss Life“).


“Mrs. Laws” and her sister “Mrs. Community”, along with husbands “Mr. Ethics-Tradition” and “Mr. State”, have lived next door to each other for their entire married lives. In addition, an old-maid sister, called ”Miss Nature-Mankind”, lives with “Laws” and “Ethics”. A fourth sister, “Mrs. Faith-Vision” and her husband “Mr. Religion-Dogma”, live outside the immediate neighborhood.

As the play opens, all four families are anxiously awaiting the arrival of „Mr. Generation-new“ and his fiancée, „Miss Life“ Brown. „Mr. Generation-new“ has been engaged to „Miss Life“ for seven years and dated her for five years before that and, oddly enough, this will be the first time anyone in his family will have met her.


As „Mr. Generation-new“ and „Miss Life“ finally make their appearance, „Mr. Generation-new” ’s father, „Mr. State“, is so frightened of not being able to make a good impression (he considers himself a total failure) that he has one of his “spells” and is conveniently kept out of sight for the time being.

„Mr. Generation-new“, it seems, is a very reluctant suitor. He has grown more than a little comfortable with his present lifestyle and has no real desire to marry, in spite of the fact that his father has built and furnished a house, a house that has been sitting empty for several years, that will be his when and if he does marry. „Miss Life“, is beginning to wonder if she has waited long enough.

To complicate matters, „Mrs. Laws“and „Mr. State“ have reached a secret agreement. If „Mr. Generation-new“ makes no wedding announcement during this visit, „Mr. State“ will lease the vacant house to „Mrs. Laws“, enabling her to finally live alone with her husband, „Mr. Ethics-Tradition“, who has no knowledge of the agreement. She plans to leave their present house to her sister, „Mr. Nature-Mankind“„.

„Mrs. Laws“ and „Mrs. Community“ scurry about trying to calm everyone down, and just when it appears that everyone can finally be gotten to the dinner table, the face of „Mr. Religion-Dogma“ appears at the kitchen window. He has previously given his wife, „Mrs. Faith-Vision“, orders never to visit her family whom he considers to be a pack of morons. He calmly announces that, henceforward, „Mrs. Faith-vision“ will occupy the upper half of their house; he, the lower half. In that case, „Mrs. Faith-vision“ decides, she’ll just stay with her sister, „Mrs. Community“.

„Mr. State“decides to move in with „Mr. Religion-Dogma“, who has agreed to help him find out “where he is” in life. But first, „Mrs. Laws“ gets the disoriented „Mr. State“ to sign the lease on the empty house, much to the dismay of „Generation-new“, „Mrs. Ethics-Tradition“, and „Miss Nature-Mankind“„.

„Mr. Generation-new“ makes up with „Miss Life“, then enlists the aid of Uncle „Mr. Ethics-Tradition“, who has taken a definite liking to „Miss Life“, in getting “his” house back. The still confused „Mr. State“ moves back home, reassured by „Mr. Religion-dogma“ who, from all indications, misses „Mrs. Faith-vision“ and wants her to come home. „Mrs. Laws“ relents and gives „Mr. Generation-new“’s house back to him, since he and „Miss Life“ are soon to be married.

„Mrs. Community“ and „Mrs. Faith-vision“ threaten to reveal their suspicions that „Miss Nature-Mankind“„ and „Mr. Ethics-Tradition“ have been involved in a long-standing affair. „Miss Nature-Mankind“ ’s “secret,” the fact that she did once have a brief affair with „Mr. Ethics-Tradition“ many years before, is revealed, as she (Miss Nature-mankind) decides to move in with „Mr. State“ and „Mrs. Community“, finally giving „Mrs. Laws“ her wish of living alone with her husband (Mr. Ethics-Tradition).

A Flash of the Day (Archive)

1. Working on the big "GOOD SENSE": The sense of Beauty.
( via cf. "The Logic of Sense" /Deleuze) (9/2010)

2. በትርታ ይጀምራል፤ ትር ትር ይልና ይተርታል ወይንም ይተረታል ወይንም ተረት ይሆንና ይተረተራል፤ ተረት ይሆናል።(9/2010)

3. Degrading the other to "none-will" is inhuman and counter productive... The human point is to come to a common "Big-Will"(10/2010)

4. The "inner universe" (mystics) to the "outer universe" (physics) is allegorically related as the conscious mind to the virus in the human body. (6/10/2010)

5. Feeling is the language of the "inner Universe". Music/arts is the interface between the "inner" and "outer" universe.

6. Demoralization is a disgusting political tool -an expression of inhumanity employed in a social evolution, indicating the inhumanity of the employer! A disaster! (7/10/2010).

7. "In Girard's language, the law order is "mythical" and as such obeys the logic of the founding murder." (cf. Peter Robert Stork; 2005)

8. "Wenn sich zwei streiten, freut sich der Dritte"/
When two people quarrel, a third rejoices... This will be a legacy; and in the 21st century, "Wenn sich zwei einigen, freut sich der Dritte" may take over. /A mutual understanding of two people rejoices the third/.

9. My quotation of the Day (8.11.10):

Baldwin’s thought: ("The Baldwin effect")
“It is as inexorable as the colour of his eyes and the shape of his nose. He is born into a system of social relationships just as he is born into a certain quality of air. As he grows in body by breathing the one, so he grows in mind by absorbing the other.’ (Baldwin, 1906: 69-70)

10.
If "I AM" the observer (the conscious entity) so that the quanta of matter/mass (the wave function) would collapse to be a particle /the particle object), enhancing IT to the phase of THE Existing Reality.
Couldn't I -The Self- hope and help the spiritual energy/ my consciousness/ as well, to extend the transformed energy /After Life/to collapse into that existence of "THAT Beyond" Life (1). Life pertaining to "intelligent" energy (spiritual beings in the sphere of the Akashic Field), as the reflection of the "intelligent" matter or mass (human beings in the sphere of "thermodynamics" or gravity ). 17.11.10

*
(1) like J.Wheeler's Model of "the participating observer" in the Universe.

11. Forget Time! And mind Your Mind only (24.11.10).
I.e. "Talk about "time out of mind"!"(1)

12. Wikileaks in Amharic philo-play:

የዊቂ -ሊቅ ሰዋ ስው ...ባልታወቀ ነገር፤ሊቅ ፤ቂል ፤ ቅልቅል ፤ ቅል፤ ቀላል ቂል ወይስ ....በቃኝ ብሎ፤ ቅንጣት ቅብ -ብቅል ቀልቦ ፤ወደ ብቃት ሲቃ፤ ሲግዋዝ ይሁን ፤ ሲያንቀጠቅጥ ወይስ ተቀላቅሎ ሲያንቀለቅል።ያልታወቀ ነገር።
02.12.10

13. Gates and Centres:

Life , nature and actually the whole Universe know nothing about Top and Bottom or Up and Down. There are just centres in reality. Centres and Centres with all of them having their Gates, Gates leading to the Centres. What is wrong with mankind, always with the tick for tops and bottoms or ups and downs and not centres, but fixed to the gates, without the moral courage to move towards the centres -to build the symphony
- the symphony in the SPHERE.

The SPHERE:

- The SPHERE of IDEAS is THE WORD of the SOURCE. THE WORD - The PLAY where this ASHORE and that BEYOND of the HARMONY is eternally tuned to exist in the SYMPHONY of ALL, flowing and floating like in the "Ballet piece of Joseph Strauss " -the Dynamiden Waltz- with every being offering its harmonious "musical touch". (cf. The Harmony Model)

ሰው በምግብ ብቻ አይኖርም....ወሎ


14. መቃብር ላይ የሚፃፍ /+++ተጨማሪ!/


መቃብር ላይ የሚፃፍ (ከርፖርተር የተገኘ)


ጥብቅ ማሳሰቢያ ሸክላን ለምትሠሩ፤
እዚህ መቃብር ላይ አፈር አትዝገኑ፡፡
ሲነድ ሲቃጠል ሲጨስ በመኖሩ፣

ሲቃጠል ለሚኖር፣
ለጀበና መሥሪያ አይሆንም አፈሩ፡፡

+++
(አንድ ከሚመለከተው የተጨመረ!
ከመቃብር በፊት)

ሰው ለመስራት ብቻ ከፍቀደ አየሩ
ክህነት ካላችሁ አሰቡ መርምሩ
ተራ ከገባችሁ ዘክሩ አስዘክሩ
ያልሆነው እንዲሆን ምከሩ ሞክሩ
ሽቀጣና ሽቀት እንዳይሆን ሃገሩ
አንድ ቀን እንደሆን አይቀር መቃ-ብሩ።

Michelle Holliday's Humanity 4.0 

15. Human DIGNITY:

21st century is the era of Liberation Movements for Human Dignity, encompassing all other Movements, to make them superfluous – non-dogmatic, non-religious and non-ethnic with the great Common Collective Will for Human Empathy!

11 0220 11 - EGYPT's Dignity Day, the Landmark for a radical break with all Tyrannies!

Thanks to Tunisia -The Heroic Pioneer of Freedom!

እንደዚህ ሆነና ...እስኪሆን ይሆናል!
