Triadic Philosophy - Squelching The Illusions of Infallibility (Truth Matters)

The initial triad of this philosophy is
Reality Ethics Aesthetics
This philosophy sees triads as the basic way one can
think productively
Insofar as it is a semiotic enterprise
it creates a distinction between useful  terms
and the use of such terms as signs or words
within a particular triad
For example the word sign
is not generally useful as a first, second or third
but it is of fundamental use to describe
the penumbra which is the border 
between ourselves and what we do not (yet) know
+
PARSING THE TRIAD ABOVE
Top First
Perfection
(Not infrequently we are set
on a track of high inspration
and feel we have "it"
just right
clear
bright
seraphic)

+

Second
Fallibility
(Needless to say
we are confined by our point of view
our capacity for error
our biases
and prejudices)
+
 
Third
Discrimination
(The action that arises from
such thought
is a willingness to discriminate
to always ask questions
even of the most seraphic presuppositions)

+

Coda
I do not agree with Nietzsche that lies
can be useful
but rather that there are too many truths
to be sanguine in the certainty
that we possess THE truth

The Seer came to show a way that opens life to one and all - The Tao of John 13

The Seer's story differs from the text
His deeds spoke of  deathless unity
He deals with now while John dwells on what's next
The Seer's freedom becomes slavery

+

Large portions of the text of John
look back to tell  the story of
one who has become messiah
the priestly object of worship
If this is what the story is
the very flesh and blood it holds
is turned to priestly vapors and
a saving truth has become cold
The Seer dioes not separate
the sensual and spiritual
The Seer came to show a way
that opens life to one and all
