From binary to triadic perception and creativity

Divide and lose the binary's a trap Useful for some things but otherwise One step away from what lies in your lap The third that has the power to unify
Please see my posts on Charles Sanders Peirce for explanations of why the most revolutionary movement of the present is and will be the movement from binary to triadic perception and creativity.

Everybody knows the facility with which habits may thus be acquired, even quite unintentionally. But I am persuaded that nothing like a concept can be acquired by muscular practice alone. When we seem to do that, it is not the muscular action but the accompanying inward efforts,the acts of imagination, that produce the habit. If a person who has never tried such a thing before undertakes to stand on one foot and to move the other round a horizontal circle, say, as being the easier way, clockwise if he is stand…

The Tea Party Will Not Succeed

The Tea Party will not succeed
It lacks a proper recipe
Tolerance and helpfulness
Allegiance to democracy
A bed of non-idolatry
