Triadic Philosophy - Science, Resurrection, Way

+
Triadic Philosophy in this declension
builds from the initial triad 
Reality Ethics Aesthetics
+
The first rises as a sign or word from
the penumbra around us all
the mystery
The second gives the sign a context
It is often a contradiction
a question
or some blunt truth
Out of the relation between 
One and Two
the third emerges by guessing at the active
experiential element in the thought process
generally an experiment
which might become a rule 
then a habit
+
THE IMAGE ABOVE
+
First
Science
(Science is the sine qua non of Reality 
denoting the sphere in which observations
and logic coalesce in the quest for
the truth of any matter.
In a colloquial sense science is
synonymous with reality)
+
Second
Resurrection
(Resurrection is the central
doctrine of Christianity -
belief in the continuation of individual life
beyond the complete decay 
and obliteration of bodily existence.
Since science has not measured it
it's pure speculation
AKA faith)
  
+
Third
Way
(Way denotes a chosen willed
mode of living which in Triadic Philosophy
acknowledges the reality of 
elements in us that
point to freedom choice and willed existence
Among these are  conscience
the capacity to envision the good 
and the line of questioning that 
acknowledges the
possibility of life's continuity
A way is what a triadic philosopher
might prefer to
creedal religion
reductive materialism 
or scientism)

"Sto Perigiali" One of the Surpassingly Best Tunes Theodorakis Has Written

A Setting for a Poem "Denial" Beloved by the Greek People by the Nobel Prize Winning Poet Giorgos Seferis

The remarkable video at the link above is of a performance of "Sto perigiali" Mario Frangoulis and Mikis Theodorakis in 2001.

Frangoulis and Theodorakis are joined by musicians, including two bouzouki players, and a very large audience that is completely familiar with the words. The audience joins in at Frangoulis' prompt.

This is my very favorite Theodorakis melody. Those who know Theodorakis only for his "Zorba" music are in for a treat. When I was in Athens in 1966, for a short period of study with Constantinos Doxiadis, I knew nothing of Theodorakis. But about five years later, my friend Irene Vassos sang "Sto perigiali" to us. I have never gotten the tune out of my mind.

Later, when Irene joined our group to form a travelling company performing "New Rain", I learned to pick out a …

Obama Ads Should Be Grass Roots Cinema Verite

ShortFormContent at Blogger: How President Obama Can Win Christian Conservatives:

'via Blog this'

To counter the invidious efforts of Karl Rove and the Brothers Koch, simple videos of everyday people expressing gratitude for specific results from specific things that the President has achieved will create a signature response that will turn the tables on the Super PACs.

There could be an intro that flags lies distortions and anonymous attacks as unreal and even criminal and a cut to what is real, recognizable and not anonymous I am (name). I have lived here in (name) for (time). Thanks to (President Obama's (name) Act ... and so forth for ten seconds. Close with a continuation of the story narrated over evocative images and simple acoustic music.

This would be a fantastic way to counter the attacks on the President. For every specific attack, a video that shows the truth. And grass roots people who intend to vote for the President.
