Oddly common perceptions of the riddle of life

No philosopher can rightly say how thought begins
And only Peirce appears to have advanced beyond Aristotle
When we say we are thinking
Having gotten to that point from the miasm
We cogitate in threes

Whatever rises from the primal welter
Qualifies as a sign
A first

Which instantly strikes a blunt truth 
Or a second

Then comes
An intention an experiment a habit an evolution a theory or an idea
A third

Triadic thinking moves beyond nominalist binary
Protagonist antagonist
Eternally returning
To something approximating 
The way things are

We live in a chronological world in a state of vague and univeral musement 
Reflecting oddly common perceptions
of the riddle of life
