The ontological place of Will in Triadic Philosophy



Will is central to Triadic Philosophy
This is hardly an original notion
Great thinkers have always recognized will
Will is the engine of action
the impulse to create
the very life force
of all humanity
Everything we do is the result 
of our possessing will
Ontology means being 
Within Triadic Philosophy 
Ontology is central
Every key word within the simple powerful structure
of Triadic Philosophy 
is ontological
Every word conveys the way things are
Words like circus rabbits virtue even justice
are not in themselvcs ontological
But 'will' is
With no need for modification 
will stands tall within Reality
Will has a close companion within Reality
Freedom
Freedom within Triadic Philosophy is
the power to choose among values
It is also the power to refuse
This is why the ultimate evil 
is to consciously kill another
and why all grades of harm are grades of evil
All evil is a frontal attack 
on the  very source of human dignity
All evil is a blow at holiness 
All evil is a denial of the
preciousness of humankind
To foreclose freedom 
and deny the exercise of will
is the substance of the evil that
the Triadic Philosopher
seeks daily deliverance from

The place of will in Triadic Philosophy is in
the realm of Reality 

The aim of Triadic Philosophy is that
all people become conscious actors
engaging in freely willed acts of
helpfulness tolerance
democracy and non-idolatry
These are the
values that are 
- like freedom and will -
ontological

"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.
