The goal of Triadic Philosophy

The goal of Triadic Philosophy is to propound a universally applicable mode of thinking that leads to "good" expressions and actions.

The premise of Triadic Philosohy is indeed that we are in continual dialogue with ourselves and that we can refine and even direct such dialog via conscious decisions we can make.

The urge to live and to do what we will and to share with others - reflect values but are not what I mean by universal values. I contend that there are four basic values that have operated to create progress over time. Tolerance, democracy, helpfulness and non-idolatry. These are complementary and interactive with non-idolatry, essentially the first commandment, functioning as a brake on our assumptions of infallibility.

In my view conscious thought begins with and is demonstrated by the fact that we choose values.
"We value, therefore we are." History is the sum and aggregate of every human act and is influenced by the choice of values.

There is indeed truth in the notion that we think in threes and that binary thinking is inherently stunted, as it applies to life generally.

I will continue to defend reality, ethics and aesthetics as a root template for conscious thinking.

"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.
