Triadic Philosophy - Wish Reality Actuality

Triadic Philosophy is an easily acquired mode of thinking
It sees things in triads or threes
like this initial one
Reality Ethics Aesthretics
It starts with the First 
a sign or word
or symbol or icon
something rising up in consciousness
To even have life 
the First must encounter the Second
which is human reality AKA blunt truth
AKA an interpretation of the firstl term or sign
Finally there is the Third
the recognition of the initial dyad
seeing it as
a summons to experiment or act
(A wish in this triad
is raw and  unexamined
an impulse
an urge)
(Reality confronts the wish
and seeks to explain it in terms
related to intention and  feasibility
to what we call reality)
(Actuality results from linking wish
with reality 
It defines the initial wish
in terms of what one actually desires
It often turns out that the wish must now be scaled
to results at once more possible and 
on analysis 
more pleasing
when realized)

"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.
