Triadic Commentary - Aesthetics is vastly more than an artistic quality

Among the revolutionary aspects of Triadic Philosophy
the most important may be the elevation of aesthetics 
to its rightful place in the triad 
which is the root of how we think and therefore 
of how we live and move and have our being. 

In Triadic Philosophy the root triad is
Reality Ethics Aesthetics
Aesthetics is the plane of activation
Of iteration
Of emergence from the struggle betwen 
Etthics and Reality
In Triadic Philosophy 
anything can be any one of the three
in a triad
Triadic Philosophy
always sees whatever is first
as reality
It always sees the Second as the challenge to this first
Aesthetics the Third takes the result of this linkage
and translates it into a hypothetical action
a stab at doing something
an experiment
Its criteria are that truth and beauty be found
in the action
When these are lacking life is diminished
The cosmos is set back
We lose some of what we have gained

If this seems fanciful bear with me
Every word of Triadic Philosophy
has a place and a justification which 
validates it as an aspect of being
as ontological 
 as Reality
If today aesthetics is seen merely as artistic quality
that is a reduction that will not stand.
Philosophy has not done much better
relegating aesthetics to vastly less than 
Keats' equation of beauty and truth.
Triadic Philosophy follows Keats

"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.
