I never was much for poetry.  To me it seemed that a lot of words were missing.

 

I think you are onto something; Nature has even fewer words than poetry. Closer to the essence. Or, if you want to go with the more words method, that's cool too. There are certainly plenty to choose from.

Not speaking to the article but I have been accused of deconstruction a couple times.  

 

In my opinion this is the only useful way to determine the "cause" of the "effect".

 

Of course, this also applies to the concept of "all is one".  The only way to determine what "one" is composed of is to deconstruct "one" into its "ten thousand things".

 

"One" is composed of me and of Hitler.  I refuse to be a part of his shit.  Therefore I must deconstruct.

I posted these on the Favorite Quotes thread.

Trust quotes

All the world is made of faith, and trust, and pixie dust.

---Peter Pan

 

I'm not upset that you lied to me, I'm upset that from now on I can't believe you.

---Nietzsche

 

many many more

Is Trust a philosophical concern? Yes, it is.

As a student of the Humanities I appreciate the classics. What makes something truly classic? The sense of Timelessness that touches on the human condition.
Perhaps when you think of CCR other songs come to mind, yet Ramble Tamble transcends existence and comes into Being. check it out.

 

Edit> the video had been taken down by YT, same song, different video. The other was a waitress wa,king out onher job to go on a worldwide journey. 

Those guitar progressions though,,,,,

Well, for some people, in order to have a different life they must walk away from their old life.  If the environment and conditions can't be changed then the only option left is to change our self.

"Euripides?" asks the Tailor

"Yes, Eumenides?" replies the Ancient

Ok waited long enough, I reckon.

I was thinking about how Marcus Aurelius handled the Antoine Plague; he handled it as a true heroic stoic to be sure.

There are striking similarities in the Antoine Plague experience and our current covid~19.

The heroic stoic spoke to the people,; maintain a calm mind, after all this thing has happened before and will happen again.'

Except the heroic stoic spoke in Latin and/or Greek.

Amor fati& momento mori

 

I like stoics, no surprise there is there?

They big on Nature like I am.

There is an article out 2019, by Man, Andrei-Tudor, The Role of Divination in the Stoic System.

Well it s natural being part of nature.

Looking forward to reading the article.

Today is the 250th anniversary of Hegel's birth.

How time flies.....

 

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/aug/27/germany-finds-it-hard-to-love-hegel-250-years-after-his-birth

 

Hegel's dialectical thinking, double negations, truth is in the practice, wholism, totality, to me was like his brand of Germanized Taoism.  I believe that he understood "being" to a high degree but to really understand what he was trying to convey, I believe one, pretty much, had to live with the guy for a year or two.  Though being a learned Taoist is certainly helpful.
