Charles Sanders Peirce has inspired me to understand values as ontological

CSP

+

Charles Sanders Peirce has inspired me to 
understand values as ontological 
and tied to human will. 
Charles Sanders Peirce has encouraged me to
 herald the death of culture religion  (see Barth)  
and its evolution into a global spirituality 
based on values - 
lived in the immanent frame.
Charles Sanders Peirce has inspired me to 
wonder about my past 
as his family arrived in Watertown, MA
at about the same time  my ancestor 
Captain Hugh Mason settled there (1639) 
and I share many traits that have been 
ascribed to CSP and have had 
a “career” similar in some respects to his. 
Charles Sanders Peirce saw through things 
and was plain in his description of what he saw. 
Those who find him obscure 
may have vision problems 
or not. 
It depends on your philosophy.

Will is the power that enables conscious, reasoned thought.

The Struggle

+

Will is the power that enables 
conscious, reasoned thought. 
The reality of will and its fundamental power 
is central to Triadic Philosophy. 
We are confronted with mystery always.  
Thinking realistically carves out a space 
within the mystery 
for the consideration of Ethics 
and then enables an Aesthetic response 
that tends toward the beautiful and true. 
We have spent millennia 
locked in largely binary, 
dyadic modes of perception, 
leading to conflict in all areas of existence. 
We have denied the will to determine our destiny. 
We have subordinated values 
to the realm of pricing things. 
And we wonder where we are going. 
Triadic Philosophy demonstrates that 
the lineaments of a positive destiny 
 have been present all along. 
It was always possible to think in threes. 
It was always possible to find a way beyond 
a house divided. 
The proof lies in doing it. 
In this sense doing Triadic Philosophy may be 
the most significant action anyone can take.

Doing things by rote means that we have settled on them. They are habits.

Doing things by rote means 
that we have settled on them. 
They are habits. 
Triadic Philosophy becomes an active, 
willed element of our lives 
when thought is required. 
When a habit must be changed. 
Or when something new must be done. 
Triadic Philosophy offers a mindful route to 
the solution of any issue one wishes to tackle.

Acting in Triadic Philosophy is always the result of perceiving a sign, word or idea

Strange Ocean

Acting in Triadic Philosophy is always  the result 
of perceiving a sign, word or idea, 
then passing it through the skein of the Ethical 
and  finally willing that our resulting acts 
tend toward truth and beauty.  
Though we claim reality for ourselves 
and even for our actions, 
the specificity of any act means that 
it has no ontological (general) status in itself. 
We become more real  (with a small r) 
the more our actions are redolent of Reality.
 It is an interesting journey. 
Signs, words and ideas begin in the realm of Reality. 
Their passage through Ethics and  Aesthetics 
gives them a particularity. 
All acts are particular. 
Still the closer our actions are to the ideal 
the more we can  guess that eternity is 
intersecting with chronological time.

Triadic Philosophy - Thinking is as important to history as actions are.

Fantasy Blocks

Thinking is  as important to history as actions are. 
A life devoted  mainly to thinking is as admirable 
as one focused entirely on action. 
Practically speaking, most of us do both.  
And we err most egregiously 
when we make a distinction between the two. 
Triadic Philosophy operates in every case 
to unify thinking and acting 
under the signs of 
the Ethical and the Aesthetic.
