Triadic Philosophy sees memory as both past and present


+

Triadic Philosophy sees memory as both past and present
We live in the now but can summon up the past
and do 
both willfully and spontaneously
This memory is part of a text
in my book of sonnets
Winning the War Within
The sonnet expresses a present resolution
of what over time had become a painful sense of loss
The action of will on memory suggests the triad
Memory
Will
Resolution
It partakes of what psychology calls sublimation
It is an aesthetic resolution
of a past no longer real save in memory
Our freedom is more substantial than is often acknowledged
It inudes this capacity to process memory
to see it past
to observe it
to distance it
to see it as something that is in the now
just as are all the other fleeting signs that we call memories
