Some difficult fiction for the hardy soul

From Some Stones Don’t Roll (FicMemOne by Stephen C. Rose) eBook: Stephen C. Rose: Kindle Store
It's time to tweet again. I do my tweets six days in advance. If something strikes me I dripfeed it and almost a week from now I shall look at my Twitter stream and see how many favorites it has from those who Justin Bieber follows or others among my 140,000 followers. I am a leader, that's for sure. Here waiting for the birds to land and the drip to end and flagellating myself not really for being immune to empathy for the dead. I have this thing about death ever since I read something about the patterns of the cosmos that suggested to me that there is a way things move that is entirely different than we are aware of and that that makes death itself something we need not lament or well we only lament it from our point of view. Face it.  I am just immune to empathy. That's all there is to it. I will not seek therapy now. I am too old and I see no one anymor…

These words alone can change all lives

Originally the Lord's Prayer ends "deliver us from evil".
My Metrical Version:
Abba whose home in heaven is Hallowed and holy is your name Let your realm come your will be done Til earth and heaven are the same

Give us this day our daily bread Forgive the wrongs that we have done As we forgive those who do wrong Lead us not into temptation

Deliver us from evil, Lord And safely guide us to your shore Yours is the power to heal and mend Yours is the glory evermore

If you wish to be a Nomad of the Universe  and a Triadic Philosopher then cotton to this singable version of the Lord's Prayer
Because it contains the whole of reality within its twelve lines including  what keeps the world running
That would be forgiveness
Here is the purpose of life To make the world heavenly
Here is our chance to talk to Abba daily
Do not pass it by
Sing it to any tune you like Chant it Read it Share it Believe me
These words alone can change all lives

What Does "We" Mean?

"All people" is my definition of "we" in the following statement:  "We are inevitably social. We are capable of achieving a sense of universality. This universal sense distinguishes Triadic Philosophy." Triadic philosophy regards most accepted divisions among human beings as secondary to a fundamental unity which transcends them all.

One point of synthesis with Peirce

Triadic Philosophy definitely begins with the individual observer. And with whatever comes up that he or she decides to attend to or consider. For example, I went for a stroll just now and thought and what came up was Peirce List. All I do when something comes up is run the terms of my ethics (aka index) through my head and maybe say something as to how they seem to apply. Tolerance, democracy, helpfulness, non-idolatry. Then I utter in a mildly mantra-ish way to myself the linked terms truth-beauty and beauty-truth. Finally, I ask myself for an expression or action and clearly this is placing truth and beauty at the top of my sense of the aesthetic and therefore of active performance of life. 
I mention this as a prelude to saying that there is no effort on my part ever to correlate, synch or otherwise harmonize my work with that of Peirce. There are vast areas of the 70,000 pages of Peirce extant that are either unfamiliar or beyond my comprehension. In particular, I have found Peirc…

Some Ties Between Triadic Philosophy and Charles Sanders Peirce

I see the pragmatic maxim as a foundational insistence that all thought move toward some experimental process by which it can be validated. Thus in matters of religion, which can be described as supposition, the PM might place some weight on the experience Peirce describes in the NA (Neglected Argument). The implication being that the process of musement can lead to better expressions and behaviors.
Triadic Philosophy holds this point of view explicitly and argues that there is an inherent, positive result (reduction of possible harm) in conscious consideration of signs in terms of Reality Ethics and Aesthetics, using the ethical index of democracy, helpfulness, tolerance and non-idolatry and the aesthetic prod to truth-beauty, beauty-truth to create a positive expression or result.

The Neglected Argument of Peirce is not something I read before developing Triadic Philosophy.
Much of Triadic Philosophy is an amalgamation of about 10 years spent wrestling with Neitzsche (including a tri…
