Reiterating Triadic Philosophy in Three Minutes







The Slow as Molasses Press

Triadic Philosophy is 
easy. 
Intuitive. 
Free. 
Past commercialism. 
Past religion. 
Honest. 
Common Sense. 
Revolutionary. 
ANd indeed seismic. 
Earth-shaking. 
Because now is its time. 

And all the strands 
that need to be 
brought together 
will be 
brought together. 

It's originators are 
mainly dead, 
but they live in 
the philosophy. 

My friend Will Campbell 
thought this way. 

Nietzsche heralded 
the overturning of 
two-thousand years of 
binary values. 

Charles Sanders Peirce 
articulated the philosophy 
that undergirds it. 

And humankind is 
at last ready 
to take up 
the challenge. 
It's called 
responsibility. 
Owning the world 
we live in. 
And thus transcending 
and saying NO 
to the binary 
systems of power 
that keep saying 
we cannot oppose 
or escape. 

We can oppose 
and escape 
with triadic philosophy, 
even as explained 
in this little video.

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 …
