Triadic Philosophy Ontology Non-Idolatry Community Unity

Ontology exists in the realm of reality
and is the seat of the three active values and their underlying value  
The three active values are tolerance democracy and helpfulness
The underlying value is non-idolatry
These are universal values that transcend 
creed or religion or any other limiting category 
Ontology embraces the stuff of reality
of being 
It is the substance of what is
The terms we use to describe what exists
are our feeble means of recognizing in being itself
the signs that point us to ways of being here and now

THE IMAGE TRIAD ABOVE

First
Non-idolatry
(Because of its status as ontological
non-idolary is a first
It is the willed iconoclasm that withdraws
worship from any human idea notion person or object)

Second
Community
(Community is always a challenge
to non-idolatry
representing as it does obligations and ties
and and other barriers
to the exercise of the profound freedom
that is the gift of non-idolatry)

Third
Unity
(Unity is the means by which 
the conflict between
non-idolatry and community can be resolved
Unity of  all
Unity within
Unity of purpose
Unity of understanding)

Stacked Images - Locating Sign Theory in Triadic Philosophizing

Triadic thinking in the philosophy I am unpacking
accepts a simple discipline
All triads refer back to the original triad of
Reality Ethics Aesthetics
To be explicit all triads begin with
the First which is the vague but complete realm of signs
the Second which is the blunt truth that rises from 
our fallibility our finitude our need to interpret the signs
and the
Third which is always the product 
of the first two morphing into
rules or hypotheses or intentioons
from whence
proofs and habits arise
so that our being here mirrors reality
STACKED IMAGES - SIGN THEORY

First
is Reality
(Vague indistinct penumbral)

Second is Clarity
(the process of identifying a sign and 
putting it into words and wrestling with its
value and prospects for realization)

Third is Activity
(habits rules hypotheses proofs)
