Charles Sanders Peirce has inspired me to understand values as ontological



Charles Sanders Peirce has inspired me to 
understand values as ontological 
and tied to human will. 
Charles Sanders Peirce has encouraged me to
 herald the death of culture religion  (see Barth)  
and its evolution into a global spirituality 
based on values - 
lived in the immanent frame.
Charles Sanders Peirce has inspired me to 
wonder about my past 
as his family arrived in Watertown, MA
at about the same time  my ancestor 
Captain Hugh Mason settled there (1639) 
and I share many traits that have been 
ascribed to CSP and have had 
a “career” similar in some respects to his. 
Charles Sanders Peirce saw through things 
and was plain in his description of what he saw. 
Those who find him obscure 
may have vision problems 
or not. 
It depends on your philosophy.

"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.
