Triadic Philosophy Commentary - The binary is the world's worst addiction.

What's Up?

The binary is the world's worst addiction. 
Binary is either-or conflict.
Watch any war movie to see its hellish effects.
The only cure is to think in threes whenever 
the only reality would otherwise be either-or.
If someone relishes conflict
let it be the conflict with the world created by 
the growth of triadic thinking.
Consider how addictive war is,
how addictive confict,
how addictive the harmful exercise of power.
Even a Htler could not have ruled a nation that
simply stayed home in the face
of his binary doctrines.
Triadic does not act
save to refuse to act
when there is no third possibility.
Triadic Philosophy considers tolerance and helpfulness
democracy and  non-idolatry
in connection with every action.

Why do so many veterans of our recent
binary wars end their lives?
Need one ask?
Mindlessness is binary.
Mindfulness is triadic,
refusing to act unless an action 
does more than add to the karmic
guarantee of conflict and collapse.
Truth and beauty lie always with 
the third option.

"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.
