Triadic Philosophy What Is Required of a Philosophy

Unknown Cosmos

+

A philosophy needs to start by saying what is 
universal and true,
what things apply to all.
The most damaging word in philosophy is of
A philosophy of this or of that
wrenches philosophy from an obligation
to say what is universal in every situation.
The result is a distortion of reality.
The traditional name for such distortion is idolatry
In Triadic Philosophy, 
Reality is the foundation. 
It is universal.
 Its companions are Ethics and Aesthetics.
All enterprises are in the pale of reality.
They do not transcend it.
They are finite, open to alteration, 
subject to continuity.
Logic, mathematics, science, theology, psychology
all fall under Reality, not beyond it.
All are subject to the universal sway of
Ethics and Aesthetics.

The truth of Triadic Philosophy
rests in its capacity to establish 
its premises to the point that they are 
acknowledged to be accurate and therefore
consistent with truth and beauty
because they properly represent Reality

"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.
