Triadic Philosophy -Ethics and Destiny A Brief Meditation

Ethics in Triadic Philosophy is the Second 
in the foundation triad
Reality Ethics Aesthetics
It is always a brake
a thus-far-and-(maybe)-no-farther
a summons to wrestle with the reality of the moment
Destiny is a First
It is an aspect of Being 
of Ontological Reality
It is what signifies a particular life
within the vast complex of all lives
It has authority because it is real
It needs and wants and deserves to be realized
But in Triadic Philosophy
Destiny and Ethics wrestle
The result is a resolution within the
third realm which is Aesthetics
our hypothetical experimental
effort to realize our lives in a way
that resonates aesthetically


Ethics poses to Destiny
four ontological values 
which enable us to mould our
or plan of action
to  permit an aesthetic response
something we can see with
pleasure and acceptance


Let us say one's destiny is to be a rebel
The four values are tolerance
democracy helpfulness
and non-idolatry
They summon us to strain our rebellion
through a colander of values that make
for progress
Progress is always self-realizing
and world-realizing
When done
one hopes that one's actions will
have something closer to beauty
than ugliness
closer to grace and joy
than what disgraces
and leeches joy from the world

"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.
