More Stacked Images in quest of Peirce's semeiotic


Continuing a highly experimental 
guessing
at
three elaborations of Charles Sanders Peirce's
semeiotic AKA logic AKA
the truth derived from signs 

Top First
Speculative Grammar
(the study and organization of signs)

Second
Critical Logic
(examination of signs in terms of truth or veracity)

Third
Speculative Rhetoric (Method, Methodeutic)
(the communication of findings rising from 
the application of logic to selected signs)

 +

The images suggest to me
1.  a sense of the place from whence all signs arise
2. the collision between signs and critical analysis 
and
3. a hypothetical notion of how the results might be organized
along with any applications rising from the process

A one page primer related to Abba's way


Each person's way is self-constructed
as is each person's life
So this is simply one person's rule
and not the whole by any means
The practice varies and is revealed to be
superficial and incomplete as chronology
unfolds new wrinkles
What works is the underlying reality of Abba
as one with whom one can converse
and on whom one can depend  
Beyond that lies a misty freedom
at the penumbra's edge
where intimations of full unity exist

What is truth Pilate asked which means he could not see


Seeing and hearing is the essence of the prophetic challenge
It is echoed in Scripture from first Isaiah to Paul
with a stop at Jesus on the way
Anyone with a mind now sees the unfolding drama of the end of oil
Chevron tries to ameliorate it with soft short term profit words
but when whatever end to oil comes
it will have been reasonable to stop using it long before we did
and to begin building the post-oil world
made manifest on the very pages of this blog
car free integral and a quarter revolution beyond binary silliness

Thinking in Threes Experiment Stacking Images

All the universe is perfused with signs, said Charles Sanders Peirce
Today I woke with the strong impulse to stack images
I succeeded using IfanView
Now I can begin to think using threes
Top First- - Sign
Second  - Object
Third - Interpretant
I see this as the vagueness
followed by an unattainable specific
followed by the effort to bring these two into some form
as yet in process
Do I know what I am doing
No
But I know that beyond knowledge there is guessing
and that is what this is about
