Triadic World is the closest thing we have to a PLAN for a MODEL of a sustainable world.

Triadic World is the closest thing we have to a PLAN for a MODEL of a sustainable world. It is the product of a 50 year evolution of thinking shared by millions around the world.

EXCERPT ONE When you take your reality and pass it through the values tolerance, democracy, helpfulness and non-idolatry and then subject what rises to Truth and Beauty Beauty and Truth you are likely to be prompted to actions or expressions that reflect the vision of progress of those who have followed this philosophy over time.

To Entitle All

Nationalism is harmful  when it embraces  the virulent edge  of incipient harm to others.
The 20th century laid bare  the bane of nationalism
Isms are not as prevalent these days We are wrestling with one world concepts
With ecology
With sustainability
Shall we be frank With survival With trying to roll back  our senses of entitlement To entitle all

Everything is always better.

From  Some Stones Don't Roll (FicMemOne by Stephen C. Rose) eBook: Stephen C. Rose: Kindle Store http://buff.ly/1gBzxT2
Everything is always better. Palmiers broken in two and the new plastic, top always in place, iced-coffee thingy. I will take it with me on my journey. I have a viaticum in waiting. I have Kenneth Burke on my floor ledge. Now there's a siren, fire no doubt. And buildings collapsed and three dead six miles north and east. Now a hammering upstairs. As if we used stairs anymore. Two plastic containers of supplements I do not use anymore. They stand like sentries between me and the dirty window where a record player also obsolete sits next to cassette holders also empty and yes I know a change in view would be just the thing to change everything to make pigeons more visible to make the window cleanable. The dripping has not stopped.

Maxims are a source of our conduct

C. S. Peirce said [EP2:258] , "Whenever we set out to do anything we ‘go upon’, we base our conduct on facts already known."  He adds that our conduct can only rise from memory when our investigations have been "made and reduced to a memorial maxim.” 
Although I have operated, along with all manner of others, on this premise - our capacity to remember songs is obvious proof of such inner resources - it is heartening to find in Peirce this contention stated this way. 
Peirce seems to be saying that maxims are a source of our conduct. This spins out into the incredible influence of advertising jingles and the like and the viral phenomena connected with the Internet. The Slow as Molasses Press

The Word Lies at The Gateway to Our Thinking

I do not think much can be explained regarding what exists before we name things. Our minds are connected to reality which strikes us as Vagueness. As a penumbra. Or as I would say, All Embracingly. Reality. That would be the realm of firstness, it seems. That said, it seems also that we keep things in mind in verbal form so that consideration from "firstness" can be inferred. Yes, words are what advances signs to relationship with our reality.  There is a sense in which "In the beginning is the word". To coin a phrase.

Thinking Consciously is Most Rewarding

Thinking consciously is a three stage process leading to an act or an expression. Firstness is not so much determined as processed, first by giving whatever comes up (the sign) a term, an identity, a word, etc. and then submitting it to a second which is an index or a challenge or a colander or a filter. Reality meets OUR reality. The result of this collision yields up thought and the result of thought is the third - life as we live it. AKA an act or an expression.  Thus, whatever the first is, or was, survives and is manifested as a result of a process. The more conscious this process is, 
the more obvious and 
rewarding. Or so I surmise.
