What is Time and What Is Space?



Triadic Philosophy understands time and space as 
elements of Reality and thus as generals, 
as universals.
Time is understood to be chronological,
however we unfold it.
It goes forward.
It can be accurately described within the limits
of the means we have to be aware of it.
There may seem to be types of time,
 such as "eternity" or "kairos" 
but these simply indicate that
we are aware of qualities 
within chronological time.
But these qualities do not alter
time's continuity.
Universes themselves,
insofar as we understand them,
are chronological.

Triadic Philosophy sees space as 
a characteristic of Reality.
The common characteristic of space is that
it appears to be empty
but this is not so.
Space is known by the objects that occupy it.
Space is always changing.
Space is anything that not presently an object.
Objects occupy space.
Space and time are a continuum
within Reality.
Space changes.
Time does not.

"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.
