Triadic philosophy places reality at the head, ethics as immediately following, and aesthetics as the springboard of all action. As we think we begin with whatever comes up as real and submit these signs to  the ethical. Ethics considers tolerance in its varied senses,  helpfulness or enabling and democracy as universal rights. From ethics we move  to the aesthetic. We complete our thought by imagining an act or expression that follows it. All of this becomes second nature as it it is practiced.
