Hi, David,
I think it's about "primal" versus "rational" energy In this, I am using the term "rational" in a way which can include the entire upper psychosomatic range of faculties as written about by Leary and Robert Anton Wilson et al.
In this usage, the term "rational" might extend to sincere fortune-telling and fiction-writing but exclude a physicist who is merely throwing a tantrum at the moment. The forum's remoteness protects us from the pots and pans he or she might throw.

Bucky Fuller's observation was (paraphrasing),"I am not what I eat. If I were, I'd weigh 60,000 pounds. Rather I am my alterable blueprint."
Primal energy is capable of altering a blueprint but mostly in singular thrusts during an emergency...and without good conceptualizing activity before it, we can only hope the event has a fortunate outcome. With rationality, we could almost know the outcome ahead of time and
continue to make accomodations to improve the outcome.

Primal energy is probably the defensive/fight-or-flight mechanism, run by the second brain. If we perceive danger and are somewhat less courageous than Jesus (in the story, at least),
we might go to "fight-or-flight" on very little justification. Ego, or what Scientology calls the Reactive Mind, gets in gear and usually creates a less than optimum result, so it says.

A communication of primal energy may be clearly brutish or it can be dressed up in pretty terms,
even philosophical or scientific, but it's clear to a higher being whether a communication is primal or rational. To be that higher being is more a responsibility than something to brag on.
It is fraught with danger. I must remember a bull can trample a rational physicist or rational philosopher... or one may happen upon a bull's leavings, even if it were from a physicist or philosopher. I don't want to stop on that point! but I have to leave off for now.
